A Comment From Becca



Sweet Becca Lucas told me recently My silliness makes her roar Confided though, if given the choice Prefers my serious poems more My comfort zone has always been humour Find humour in almost all things A cockeyed look at this sad old world Every morning I'm ready to sing Till Becca confided, I was unaware My serious poems made a impact After all these years on this planet of ours In life, experienced most aspects Just chug along now in my own domain Hoping to improve the outcome So hearing a comment like Becca just made It made my old heartstrings hum Thank you Becca for your thoughtfulness © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon decided that if you can sing in the morning, then he will, too. More like caterwauling than singing... I made an emergency call to Miss Kitty Purffect to give him singing lessons... and to get him to tone his volume down... What a set of lungs he has... She decided to give him guitar lessons to redirect him... YES, he's REALLY that bad! She's going to teach him a few folk songs... so he can be like you... watch out! Competition is on the way! NOT!... I've heard him... Tone deaf!... LOL

    Aw, Jack! This touches me ... it shows me that someone values my opinion, and that is always a nice feeling :) I'm glad my comment made your heartstrings hum :) Keep in mind, I LOVE your humor too... you always brighten my day. I think I loved your serious one because I can relate more to emotions.... and because it showed a tender side to you that I hadn't seen. But please know that I love your humorous poems too :) Big big hugs my dear Jack, thank you so much for this, you made my day!!!

    Now this just goes to prove what a sweet caring lady you are. We must always keep an open mind and be willing to listen and adapt. It's how we grow... we NEVER stop learning and growing! You are a sweetie, dear Becca... love and warm cuddles xoxoxox

    As you know already, I've always been a fan of your humor, but I can see Becca's point, your serious poetry has a certain tug on the heartstrings! However that being said, I still prefer your humor Jack, might be because you are so naturally awesome at it, you are a humorous person by nature my friend! This is so a tenderhearted dedication to Becca, I loved reading this tremendous poem here this morning! What a fantastic piece, Great Work!!
