About Raelene J. Elliss

Many years ago, Raelene J. Elliss’ brother passed away in a drowning accident at a popular surf beach in South Australia. Her heart was broken, and the strain of the grief was unbearable. She had no idea how to express her feelings about that tragic loss.
One very warm evening, as she lay awake, unable to sleep due to the worry in her life, she wrote down her feelings on a scrap of paper. Out of that scrawling came her first poem. That was in 1986, and now more than 30 years down the track, Raelene has written more than 200 poems. They have mainly been for her family in celebration of milestones, birthdays, and Christmas.
She developed a knack for picking up a word, phrase, or very funny situation that would inspire a poem. She calls herself the Poetic Rambler and signs her poems as such. Raelene hopes that her poems bring joy and inspiration to whoever reads them.

  • THREE DAYS

    An incredible event that changed the world, by a man who walked amongst sinners.
    He showed a great love, healing , and a way to live.
    THe resurrection is the single most important thing in my christian faith.
    Jesus died on the cross in the most brutal manner possible.
    He rose again and freed me of my sins, by simply believing in him.

  • PRAYERS OF FRAIL FAITH

    We pray for an immediate answer, a quick fix.
    God hears our prayers and answers them in time and over time.
    His response is a slow travelling of the plan he has for us.
    Our impatience leads us to think that God is deaf.

    I'm feeling very much like asking to see a contact for the new year before I sign up, you know check terms and conditions .
    If I don't like the look of what's to come I'm not singing up, if only we could review the steps that lay ahead of us before we lay a foot down.
    God has plans for us, though we don't understand what they could possibly be.?
    Haven't we done our bit , isn't enough enough?
    God reminds us constantly to not be afraid he is with us.

    The things we long for
    Wonders of what's to come
    More than imagined
    We are more than the sum

  • THE FIRST BORN

    A very humble beginning by an innocent infant , laying in his mothers loving arms.
    A scene we know so very well, it's celebrated in song and story around the world.
    Shepherds were summoned to follow a star, towards Bethlehem .

    THe lion and the lamb

    Her infant son would take his place

Hilarious, exactly what happens. It's a conspiracy against to pervert the course of poetic license. Thanks, I needed a good laugh.
