About Raelene J. Elliss

Many years ago my younger brother passed away in a drowning accident at a popular surf beach in South Australia.
My heart was broken and the strain of the grief was unbearable.
I had no clue how to express how I felt about this tragic loss.
One very warm evening I lay awake unable to sleep for the worry in my life.
I wrote down my feelings on a scrap of paper and out of that scrawling came my first poem.
That was in 1986 now more than 30 years down the track I have probably written 200 or more poems.They have mainly been for my family in celebration of milestone birthdays and Christmas.
I developed a knack of picking up a word or a phrase or very funny situation that would inspire a poem.
I call my self the Poetic Rambler and sign my poems with this AKA
I hope my poems bring joy and inspiration to whom ever reads them.
God bless you all

Giving feedback on published poems is much more fun than trying to scroll through them looking for gems like this. Well done. Love it! Great rhyming. I can picture this as a children's book with fantastic illustrations.

Brilliant! Everyone needs a mum and a kiss and their bear. I used to have a little dolly that scared away the monsters. Love your work. Excellent stuff.

Your words are truly of a woman with a passionate heart. I don't have snow where I live, though I have played in snow and built a snowman. God bless you, Sister.
