After Christmas 2014 - In the Moment

The time is after midnight, and I’m in the moment, thinking how another Christmas has come and gone. My spouse and I are tucked in bed, warm and cozy. Outside, white beauty coldly blankets our front lawn. Snickers, our new dog, sleeps peacefully between us. The cat creeps up beside me now. How I love her! How trusting are these creatures God gives us - how pure! Our cat lies down by Snickers. I hear her soothing purr. The visit with our daughter and her family was nice. With gifts, glad hearts and tummies full, we traveled home. More memories to cherish; the old year passes. In the moment - grateful - I finish with this poem.

Above The Clouds

Above the clouds, I long to be
Among the other things I see
Where I can stand and shout out loud
Here I stand, above a cloud!

Where whispy trails of jets in flight
In blue skies, patchwork quilts of white
While here below I am, a grain of sand
As people travel from a far off land

Above the clouds on a pitch black night
The moon peeps out to share his light
The stars still seem to find a way
To dance around the cloud's display

I'm amazed at the ability of man
To send satellites soaring, like they can
Above the clouds and far beyond
Like they posses a magic wand

But, most majestic of them all
Is that snowy mountain top so tall
Where I can stand and shout out loud
Here I stand, above a cloud!

Peaches and Cream

She was looking my way, I had nothing to say,
Though I'd dreamed that this day would transpire;
With her beaux all around, why would she look at me
With such interest and playful desire?

She was heading my way, what on earth would I say
To the prettiest girl in the town?
And how could I bear all her sunshiny hair
Or her eyes, speckled golden and brown?

I thought, "This is the one! Mercy, here comes the sun!
If I stare, I shall surely be blind:
Though I be somewhat plain, if she choose to remain
I'd be last in the county to mind."

Then my eyes turned away as she sweetly did say
Pretty phrases I cannot recall;
And I mumbled replies, though they might have been lies,
Since I cannot remember at all.

Of that bright day in May but one thing I can say,
She was dressed in a soft yellow gown;
'Twas a lemony hue that was buttery too,
And with eight shiny pearls buttoned down.

Then I asked if she'd dance at the Cunningham's manse,
At the ball on the fourteenth of June;
She replied, "Oh, how good! Yes, I certainly would;
And I hope I shall talk to you soon."

What a wonderful day! Still with nothing to say
I just whistled an old happy tune;
Having primrosy dreams of sweet peaches and cream
As I counted the hours of June.

The Face of an Angel

So many poemless years,
   Not describing your true beauty.
You’re more than an Angel,
   Here on angelic duty.

Your face echoes truth,
   Of divine radiance on earth.
Your presence warms my soul,
   And gives my life its worth.

You’re the one I think about,
   With an honest heart so true.
I just want to speak from my within,
   And wish a happy birthday to you.

As I bring you a little closer,
   Your angelic dust disappears.
I have always wanted to whisper,
   Happy birthday in your ear. 

Today is the day of reckoning,
   As my lips whisper this greeting.
And praise a wonderful day,
   While in our secret meeting. 

Not a meeting of lustful acts,
   But a meeting of a warm embrace.
I have always been mesmerized,
   When I look upon your face.

Linda-Marie


Angelic force,
draping over me, her canopy. 
Unmasking the wonder of this youngster,
her spirits alive within me

You helped erect my "secret window"
Ambitiously chasing what I hunger!
Her spirits alive within me,
unmasking the wonder of this youngster!

Our poetry sessions, I sit and reminisce.
Stress free, under this willow tree
Unmasking the wonder of this youngster,
her spirits alive within me!

When depressed and blue you come through,
relax me when feeling vulgar.
Her spirits alive within me,
unmasking the wonder of this youngster!

Every verse meant to impress this poetess,
an essence of the empress I aim to please! 
Unmasking the wonder of this youngster,
her spirits alive within me!

Harshest critic yet my biggest fan,
imperfections cast asunder
Her spirits alive within me,
Unmasking the wonder of this youngster

Death cannot take the gift I was given,
Linda-Marie!!
Unmasking the wonder of this youngster,
her spirits alive within me.

Confusion

~Confusion~ The sun kisses my fresh washed cheeks It’s warming on my face The breeze rustles my just brushed hair The mist disappears, its fingers leaving a wet trace. The birds start to sing They are late it’s already past dawn The insects start to buzz On this fresh brand new morn… We are happy to awake A new day to explore New challenges we take As we exit through our door. A chance to do good or bad The choice is up to you To be happy or be sad Or spread a smile or too. The pink fingers of cloud in the east Mean red sky in the morning Will the old saying come true? Is this a shepherds warning? As the sun set in the west Only sunset just last night The red sky was at its best That should mean shepherds delight… Is it shepherds warning or is it shepherds delight? Now I am so confused, is it morning still or night? Is it going to be fine, or are storms on the way? I wish the bloody shepherds would make their minds up today.

Magic Beans





These wonderful magic beans are first roasted and ground
Then brewed and served to many a coffee lovers delight
Lattes, Turkish,  Macchiatos and so many, many more
But for me, regular, room for cream, always tastes just right

When the day is gray and its difficult to get out of bed
A good coffee is what you need to start you moven'
I believe its caffeine that really does the wake-up trick
And the warmth and  flavor get your body grooven'

This aromatic drink has been around for many centuries
For almost all of us, enriching and enlivening our day
Just ask Starbucks, for they have found the rainbow's end
For these magic beans we are more than willing to pay

Cherish

We will cherish these moments
Because they are few,
But please always remember
I will always love you.

Choices To Face

I have some choices to face,
But these are not my decisions to make.
God told me what He wants me to do;
He said, "Listen, Son, I have a plan for you."

Enjoy This Place

Follow your dreams and follow your heart;
God has shown you the path to start.
Never give up and always have faith;
Do what you love and enjoy this place!

Beautiful, Glorious Day

Run, run, run and give it all up!
Into His arms, commend your love!
Through Him, you are saved!
What a beautiful, glorious day!

Not The Same Without You

It's not the same without you;
The days are rainy and the nights are blue.
My heart is crying and God is too,
But we are smiling, waiting here for you.

Wheels Rollin'

1 o'clock in the morning the alarm is loudly screamin'
I go wake up my brother who probably is still dreamin'
We jump in the car and the wheels start rollin'
Can't wait to pick up the papers and start strollin'

A smile planted on our face! The day is finally starting
The headlights shine bright! The animals are darting
Ah! Windows down breathing all the fresh air
My brother gathering papers with all of his care

Wheels steadily rollin down the road
Nothing is in sight, not even a toad!
Newspapers start soaring through the air!
Do I want this to end? No! I wouldn't dare

Starting to run out of papers as the sun is rising
Listening to the birds chirping is quite energizing!
I look over towards my brother to see if he is still awake 
Bless his heart! He has fallen to sleep, he really needed a break!

I throw the last paper and I began to yawn
The paper lands perfectly on that last lawn
Wheels rollin' as we head back to the beginning
Should this much fun be considered sinning?

Decisions

Lord, I do not know what to do;
Please, lead me by Your side.
Decisions I'm facing are lost and through;
Please, lead me to do what's right.

A Sunshine Spreader



Don't quite understand The ebb and flow of reviews One day they flow in like water Next day there's just a few I don't think it's my poetry There are other forces at work Could it be just the weather Or some other unknown quirk Guess I'll just try relaxing Let things be as they may In the big overall scheme of things Our attitude makes the day So smile all you buckeroos Your faces surely won't crack You'll feel up on top of the world Happiness you'll never lack Wow what an upbeat poem Bet you're feeling a big bunch better Keep on singing those happy tunes Be a joyful sunshine spreader © Jack Ellison 2013

Five Sisters

To buy a star, I wouldn’t buy just one,
For one all by itself cannot be fun.
I’d buy a group, and five to be precise
because two, three or four would not suffice.

It’s five I want, and five that I would buy,
and if you ask me, I will tell you why.
A special daughter each would represent,
Our mother’s shining dears, all heaven-sent.

Each one so lovely, mother says, So GOOD.
We came to earth to share a childhood!
With eyes so light, and dimples when we smile;
alike and yet distinctive in our style.

Such happy memories and so few bad.
What secrets shared, what revelry we had.
Divided now, we each live far away
from one another; what a happy day. . . 

If once again together I might be
with Thea, Jenny, Dori, Melanie. . . 
And give them something named for what we are:
“Five Sisters,” for we each deserve a star!

The Heart Of The Ocean

You pick me up and fly me away;
Oh my baby, what a beautiful day!
Like a rock, you are strong to withstand the motion,
And your love runs deep, the heart of the ocean.

Wish I Knew

It was just words that we would whisper 
To get us through the nights
Or dreams that came to visit us
When life just wasn't right

A comfort from being lonely
Thoughts to occupy the mind
Never really possible
It was never the right time

And after I was quiet
When the lines began to blur
You found where I was hiding
Knew right where my thoughts were

And you swooped in and won me
Took me right off of my feet
Showed me what is really out there
When two unselfish hearts meet

Showed me how to share in a moment
To be kissed without a rush
To be held onto with a passion
And be graced with your soft touch

Now you've set up camp inside of me
But you've gone so far away
So the part of you that's mixed in me
Misses the real you every day

And you took some of me with you
I'm not sure you even know
If you feel me thinking of you
Wishing you didn't have to go

Always waiting for a word from you
Hoping you're happy 
Wishing you the best there is
Even if it isn't me

But somehow looking for the happy end
Hoping you miss me too
Wondering where our story leads
I really wish I knew.

One Of The Lucky Ones



Hope I'm not putting a big hex on myself But till now I've had no serious medical problems Don't know how many can say that at seventy-eight But you can place me in the “fortunate” column Haven't done anything out of the ordinary Thinking maybe I inherited some very good genes My whole family before me all lived to a ripe old age So what's this guy... a can of baked beans! Seven sisters all lived longer than eighty A pattern seems to have been established here Don't want to break the spell or cause any problems I'll just motor along and have another beer Don't think I'd like to be around at one hundred Soiling my jockey and mumbling away Just wheel me out to the back veranda in the sun And forget me for a couple of days © Jack Ellison 2014

Shhhhhhh Listen



Shhhhhhh, listen very carefully D'ya hear that happy sound The corn is high five-ing each other The rain's finally pounding down After a record hot dry summer Getting buckets of that miracle stuff The grass is giggling just like the corn Sure hope it ends up as enough Nature is quite unpredictable eh One year to the next one following We never know if it's feast or famine In self pity we're always wallowing Should know by now nothing's for sure The weather will do it's own thing The only event we can rely on each year Is that winter is followed by spring Shhhhhhh, listen very carefully D'ya hear that happy sound Mother Nature's shining down again With her shimmering golden crown © Jack Ellison 2013

Safe

It's like a weight lifted off of my heart;
I am no longer torn apart.
Thank God you are safe;
Everything is okay.

My secrets to happiness

Should you want to know my secret
That which I keep as my own darling pet
That which keeps me happy
I shall tell you about it merrily

Yes, I do care to pamper myself
Mainly though the kitchen where I do enjoy being the chef
Eating healthy
Does keep me light, as light as a leaf

I also care to make sure my cosmetics' supply is full
Else, I would not feel that I do look beautiful
Yes, a perfume is always handy
As would be a lipstick or my shades, so shady!

I do indulge myself in matters pertaining to freedom
See you I do live according to my ideas
I care not to live a life so grim
A life lived according to the rules of ancient grandmas

Yes, I also do love keeping fit
An hour at the gym is worth a good treat
Looking good in my skin
Makes me believe that every little trick of life I shall win

More, my secret is in penning down my lines
Yes, a way to ease my overloaded mind
Brimming it is with imagination
All ready to become works of my own creation

Lastly, my secret to happiness is having been given a view of the open skies
Yes, a mere blessing it is to have been given such a glance 
Never shall they be described, not even in any works of astrology
Indeed, I do know that someday, after death,  I shall wake up to another ambiance!

Yes, I do bask in indulgence
My indulgence is mine own elegance
Else, see you I would not be so happy
Else, I would not always be so preppy!

Rah Rah Rah Sis Boom Bah



Rah! Rah! Rah! and a Sis Boom Bah! Everyone stand up and cheer A more upbeat poem you'll never find Pay attention and listen here! Funny how moods go up and down Like a proverbial yo-yo Maintaining a balance is a full time job Life's like a bucking bronco Survival of the fittest is what it's about Rule's been around forever Keep on top, don't let down your guard Be true to every endeavour Eventually you'll accomplish all your goals Maybe sooner or maybe later Depends on so many unknown factors Don't just sit there as a spectator Make it happen keep on top of your game Don't waiver, flinch, or pause Winners always keep their eye on the prize Forever stay true to your cause Rah! Rah! Rah! and a Sis Boom Bah! Stay focused, me buckeroos Happy or crabby, giggly or cantankerous Can't blame nobody else but you! © Jack Ellison 2013

Winter White

Winter White
I love the white of winter
As the snow lies on the trees
So clean and neat the landscape
But so cold the breeze.

Nothing’s ever perfect
I appreciate what’s best
It’s pretty when the snow falls
Don’t think about the rest.

I quickly grab my camera
To capture all I see
When come the snows of winter
I cannot let it be.

The white snow of winter
Covering all the ground
As far as I can see
That snow is all around.

I see patterns in the tire tracks
And ice upon the lake
What a pretty picture
All these things will make.

Children making snowballs
Throw them near and far
Looks like fun they’re having
Not at all bizarre.

Heavy coats they’re wearing
Just to keep them warm
Temperature is really down
After that big storm.

Yes, I love the white of winter
But can do without the cold.

A Total Blast



I'm in one of my happy moods Don't know the reason why Sure is better than a downer mood My friends would wonder why Always try to be upbeat each day Sure can be difficult at times Some days are much more challenging There's just no reason or rhyme It's probably just mind over matter We're always the one in control If you choose to wear a dirty big smile It'll do wonders for your soul I'm sure some of you guys are saying That's easier said than done But perseverance is surely the key So stick at it, life's full of fun In troubling times try to remember All the good things you possess You'll find the dark clouds will disappear With happiness you'll soon be blessed Really don't need no fortune or fame Material things don't always last Happiness is the greatest companion Your life will be a total blast! © Jack Ellison 2013

Whatta Bozo



When it comes to modern technology The word “bozo” suits me to a “T” I quiver and shake and tremble all over When my computer asks questions of me! Think to myself “If you're so damn smart Why are you asking this old guy? I'm back in the days of peck-peck-peck On my typewriter listening to hi-fi!” I'm at an age when the brain doesn't work The way it did way back when Wait a minute, I'm not sure this old brain Was that brilliant even back then! Some of us guys were born to be techies I'm just happy being real simple Totally content in my own little world All the girls just love my dimples! I may be a bozo but I'm a happy bozo Not familiar with that techie talk Made it this far without hurting my brain Technology's a total crock! © Jack Ellison 2013

Oh What A Relief It Is



As most days go, this one's a winner Think I'll go out and get soused After two long years hoping and praying We finally have sold our house! It wasn't a matter of price it seems Location was definitely why It took this extremely extra long time But finally a buyer came by! Advice to those who are thinking of selling Patience is definitely a must There's supposedly a buyer for every house But “For Sale” signs can start to rust! Dear Cathie and I are over the moon The relief is showing on our face Stress was getting too much to deal with To keep it a spic and span place! We can now go back to our slovenly ways With dirty dishes piled up high Mountains of clothes strewn round each room On the walls, bits of blueberry pie! Gonna miss the peace and quiet of the country Fields of green wherever you look But mostly gonna miss my best buddy Ron He'll always be number one in my book! © Jack Ellison 2013

To myself

Is it a must to be in a couple?
I find life pleasurable as a single
It gives me time to write
Time to search for my height

If it is such a must to be in a couple
Why is is that around me, I see only pain
Everything becomes always disagreeable
Love, after some time, does become a disdain!

Why, I have had my share of love
Once, when I was yet a joyful dove
Chirping madly away, laughing the day away
But love showed me its evil side on that day

Since then, I chose to live only as a single
But it seems that being single means being weird
So, should I succumb and be no more abominable?
Should I follow the route as does most of the herd?

Tell Me

Tell me sweet friend, why are you so sad
It's my passion in life to make you feel glad
This sadness you carry is depressing to see
So cheer yourself up and be happy like me

Jacuzzi

Every home should have a Jacuzzi It's the only civilized way To melt away your cares and troubles Puts zing back into your day Nothing else is really quite like it As the jets open up your pores It's such a happy invigorating feeling Like the whole damn world is yours Feeling like each of your body parts Is singing and offering you praise For waking up those happy feelings Giving thanks for each new day Now I won't get into 'two in a tub' That's a totally different ballgame Suddenly it's no more about cleanliness Your focus sure ain't quite the same A great subject for an X-rated poem So watch for it down the road Getting that anxious feeling already Must cool it or my loins will explode! © Jack Ellison 2012
