(Yesterday when my daughter wrote this, I was shocked at all the spelling mistakes. Normally my daughter is not this bad. However, Caela is currently sick with the stomach flu and, well, it now makes sense why).

By the way. My daughter has expressed to many over the years that she has always wanted to become “The Guvermint of Canada–” since she was five!

Service With A Smile…

Filed under: Poetry — C'hele @ 07:45


How may I serve you?

Please don’t look at me that way.

My face carries no disguises.

Don’t look at the no make up and

The brown, leathery and wrinkled skin.


Look into my eyes

For they speak a thousand horror stories.

My face may look well worn,

But my smile is the only thing left

That I am able to give-


Just listen.

What I might say to you may not make any sense.

But when I look into your eyes,

All I care is,

Whether you give a damn or not.

I’d stay here all night to work

At the gas station if they asked me.

Gosh. I sure need a drink.

The best cocktail available?

Is receiving true Grace-

Served with silence and a genuine smile.

When God Is In The Rain

Filed under: Poetry — C'hele @ 22:45

I find myself falling again-

And as I look down,

I think to myself that it’s the same old process.

With pure abandonment and freedom

My calm body is expectant

For there is nothing quite like the feeling.

The abrupt explosion

Soon softens

As I come into the cool blue, or sometimes green fluid.

I feel myself stretch outwards-

Bull’s-eye. Its always a perfect circle.

Allowing my essence to ride the lulling wave,

I smile-

Lost in the intense pleasure of the moment.

As I softly rock up and down,

I hear the gentle murmurings of others-

They too, wish that the moment could last forever.

That’s what it feels like you know,

When God hugs you.

“Getting High”

Filed under: Poetry — C'hele @ 07:37


Let’s get high-


We’ll get so high

That the bottom of the clouds

That we soar under?

Will tickle us into divine ecstasy.

Go on. I dare you. Let’s fly…..

Shadow People

Filed under: Poetry — C'hele @ 07:45

Can you hear me?I know your there.

You have lingered there in the shadows

Like some apparition for quite some time.

Do you have any intentions

Of walking out of my dreams?

You have made it quite clear

That you have a presence.


I have sat here day in and day out.

The years quietly wander by

While silence has been your main calling.

My black and white world has always been

A domain full of grey shadows.

But. There in the corner, you still linger.

Will you ever make your presence known?

If you ever decide to do and just to let you know,

I adore colour.

P.s.  I ‘m such a hyprocrite.  I needed to write this and post it.  Thank you all for your wonderful support.  I love you all! C’hele xo.

There Might Be Love…

Filed under: Poetry — C'hele @ 12:10

In the deep void

There is music.

Sometimes there is colour

That can shame the rainbow itself.

There is light

That sometimes outshines the darkness.

Where there is music, colour and light,

There just might be love.

Who says that the Universe is empty?

Like my daughter says, “Thinck about it!”

To Fly High~

Filed under: Poetry — C'hele @ 10:26

The skies are silent again today.

Where is the melody

That once used to tease and tickle my ears?

The vigour that used to raise and hold

     my wings steady and strong

Is now stilled?

Like a grounded bird

My tear-filled eyes refuse to look down.

I fear of missing the divine signal.

I fear that I might miss the opportunity

To again experience the euphoria-

Of again becoming one with a force so exquisite,

So powerful and splendent,

That even the Sun would feel burdened

     with the competition.
