"Tales from Paradise" (The Poem), Chapter 2
Suggested reading; "Tales from Paradise" (The Poem) Chapter 1
Well it’s been almost a year
Since I last brought you cheer
This is just a reminder
For us all to be kinder
We are all blessed
Just have to try our best
To see all of the beauty
There’s no need to be snooty
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not giving advice
But life is an absolute paradise!
I will continue from where I left off
Please bear with me and try not to scoff
If you’re not “in the loop” and need to catch up with the fun
Take my suggestion and read chapter onehttps://www.bebee.com/producer/@randall-burns/tales-from-paradise-the-poem
talk about my travels, places and experiences
What makes life exciting is all of our differences
From the Arctic to Caribbean and other places too
I’ve been all around, except Timbuktu
As I said in the previous post these collections of possessions are all just a myth
None of this matter without people, friends and family to share it with
I will reiterate, even though it’s only been a trice
Life is a wonderful paradise!
So here we all are in our cyber-paradise
We call it beBee, and everyone is so nice
Such a wealth of knowledge, expertise and perspectives
All gathered here in one extreme collective
Where to begin, how do I start?
I guess with my favorites, they are a breed apart
Javier 🐝 beBee he's still the "Top Dog"
"Shaking & Moving" so we can all Blog!
Harvey Lloyd is steadfast, like the Rock of Gibraltar
As are his advice and insights, they never falter
But I’m more interested in knowing how your bread making is going
Do I need to write more “Food Porn” to get your creative juices flowing?
Gert Scholtz writes great stuff like “A Long Jump in Time”
But at our age I think a “Short jump” is fine
(Hey! Wait a minute… I already used that last year… Damnit!...
…give me a minute…)…
Gert Scholz writes great stuff like “The Mystery of Time”
Just read it, you’ll see, his work is sublime
One of my favorites is Ian Weinberg, his thoughts and perspectives are most profound
A progressive thinker and avid writer his posts just leave me spellbound
It would be my pleasure sir to share a drink
To pick your brain and see how you think
But the burning question in my mind and this is not coming from vanity
Is how a man of your stature maintains your sanity?
Ken Boddie is quite active and he’s a very nice guy
He possess's great humor which can be a little wry
But watch out as his puns will surely make you cry
Hey Wayne Yoshida take a look on the Barby
Yes those are Moose ribs, but they’re all gone, so sorry
Why don't you fire up the “Big Green Egg”
And maybe try cooking this JPeg
Our resident Doyen is Mr. Jim Murray,
His sharp wit has the bite of a spicy curry
Phil Friedman is another great mind and blogger
I hope to join you one day for a lager
It's these two great minds that co-write the series,
"He said..He said"
Haven't seen one lately, what happened with that boys?
You put it to bed?
Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. beBee Brand Ambassador is a romantic with a big heart
Check out her stories they are pure art
But what won me over was her well wishing to all men
On International Women’s Day; of all days, Amen!
Renée 🐝 Cormier writes
sincerely about her new companion “Beau”
That’s paradise! But he’s all white so don’t lose him in the snow
(as a "dog person" I know. :-))
There is a group of people that I'm going to lump in together
Healers, therapists, alternative thinkers and positive "go-getters"
You teach me, challenge me, and you keep me entertained
I liken it to extreme sports for my spirit and my brain
Here's something that you may appreciate, uniquely "Canuck"
It's in my garden, it's my "Buddha-Inukshuk"

I think you and Savvy are pen pals?
(The pics of you two in UAE were great :-))
Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA sends us music videos
Great to listen to while I’m eating cheerios
Another great storyteller is Pascal Derrien
Although he's a CEO some of his thoughts could be construed as contrarian
(in a good way Pascal, :-))
How much fun is Nicole Chardenet?
She writes about modern dating malaise
With wit and humor she addresses all topics
I react like I’ve taken some good psychotropics
But when George Clooney calls and “says stuff”
I ROTFL with uncontrollable guffaws!
Here’s a secret I learned from this book
Why don’t you try it Nicole? It just might work
With pictures and plans of beautiful structures, polished to please any sophisticate
But the thought that I can’t get out of my head, which prompts my “inner wolf” to howl
Is the visual of you and Nicole Chardonet out for a “Night on the Prowl”
Renoy K. George is another new friend, professional blogger/strategic communicator
His writings are insightful and helpful; I’d call him an educator
But I’m looking forward to the day that we finally meet
When I’ll make you a curry that has some serious REAL HEAT!
Bill King's an engineer, (and/or technician), but he also writes too
He happily wishes everyone, “May the Forth be with You”
He talks about “Homophones” and homonyms like they’re a big deal
It’s all great stuff Bill but I have to ask; are you “Faux Real”?
Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar Goddess, is known for her “Friday Funday”
Humor to carry you all the way through to Sunday
You do a great job and I’m sure that it’s tough
But I’m still waiting for you to critique my stuff
Debasish Majumder is a poet extraordinaire
Your writing is great, you certainly have flair
You support other Bees with your constant shares
That kind of loyalty can't be found elsewhere
And finally a “plug” for my grandson Bryce
As some of you know he’s now my paradise
Here’s an early picture for all of you to see
Holy Cow! Look at him now! He’s already three!
Wow does time ever go fast, and it just goes faster and faster
Count your blessings and see the paradise NOW, or you will miss out on all that matters
