Hollywood 1996 by Suzae Chevalier


1996 was the year

I was with Chucky so dear. In L.A.

Saw “Independence Day” opening day

it was mother nature controlling humanity’s  fate.

Only July 1st Margaux Hemmingway

had committed suicide–

it was from depression she could not hide.

I also ate at the famous restaurant “Spago” in Beverly Hills

close to Willshire Boulevard and it was a thrill.

I walked in wearing a short pink patterned jumpsuit

business agents turned around because I was too cute.

Chucky was there with me without a care

he knew all of them turned their heads to stare.

Everyone was dressed in suits with a tie

they all looked the same, I don’t know why.

Then off to movie Star’s mansions we traveled to see

it was really fun taking pictures for vacation memories.

I also took workshops on filmmaking in the day

it was very interesting I have to say.

I saw Angelica Houston for the first time–

We went to The Comedy Store

Richard Pryor performed in a wheelchair

his comedy routine–

He talked very dirty– his act was not very clean.

He said something only Chucky did understand-

it was about recovery–a quote that was grand.

Now I will always remember this trip for it is etched in my mind

Thank you Chucky for showing me a really good time.

Upper East side

is where things come alive…

in 2010

that is when

Lady Gaga costumes

were in.

Also the Avatar licensing was a craze

with Jake character who was amazed-

at funny Razel puppet was

when she kissed his face–

Funny photos we did create

to lock in memory of that time

in this New York state.

Bora Bora Button

SuzaeMooreaIcecream

Riding in a taxi around the mountain side
I was in Bora Bora have a very funtime.
I was with Melodie and Razel who wore
their island gowns-
we were being driven all around Bora Bora’s towns.
Taxi driver was sweet and Melodie said so
she gave him a button that sparkled not glowed.
He wore on his dress to the Pearl Jewelry store,
the pearl jewelry owner remembered Melodie
who she adored.
For we met her in the airports first class waiting room
she recognized Melodie first as Melodie sang her tune.
Jewelry store lady said “I saw you on a button when the
taxi driver came in—he was very happy to have met you both—
he is a true fan.”
One day I will go back and visit, I hope his button is holding up
if not I will give many more he can wear around to the shops.

Bora Bora Connection

PuppitLadyRazelJimAtkins

Bora Bora was an island with strong connection
I believe I lived there in a past life
I did not need a past life regression.
The Air Tahiti Nui logo is a flower that I draw
it is in my Sarah’s Special Birthday book
I never before saw.
I also have a birthday ceremonial chair
they use the same chair in these islands
when people get married-
it has an extra flair.
Now Paul Gauguin was a French painter
who painted a fruit basket with a knife—
I would like to revisit Bora Bora
like Gauguin did who lived there at end of his life.

Bora Bora 2005

BoraBoraBaby

In a taxi I did ride

having such a fun time.

It was Bora Bora the island

in the south.

It was such a fun time

without a doubt.

Driving with a guy in a beautiful flowered dress

“You don’t believe me?”

On the islands they love and accept.

His boyfriend was in the backseat.

Wholly pete! but he was really sweet

and small as can be.

Drove up the mountainside

ate mangos and saw

skirts made with die.

Then I did shop and buy

something that caught my eye.

A straw hat for my puppet

she wore it sitting on a tuffet.

Taxi driver did receive

button of me and Melodie.

Same with people off

the cruise ship

they video taped me

taking a dip.

At Bora Bora’s hotel

please don’t tell.

For I did crash the beach

with my doll Mel.

Then a lady at pearl jewelry store

recognized me from before

but couldn’t think of what for.

She’s sitting in the executive suite

thought I was sweet and as a treat

I could stay in Bora Bora for free.

Jewelry lady did finally realize

she saw me on the button

buttoned to dress of taxi guy

happy with all smiles and sunshine.

Birthday in Vegas 2000 by Suzae Chevalier

BestVegas2000Birthday

 

Year 2000 early spring

I was staying in the “City of Sin”.

Staying in hotel called the “Stratosphere”

I went to the top, and looked down with fear.

Now I heard Tom Cruise took the sky jump down

I’m afraid of heights–

I don’t want to break my crown better to walk around the town.

We walked down the strip-

looking at all things hip–

like the Treasure Island ship.

That was some kind of a show

a spectacular in itself with things a glow.

Now many sights we did see–

like 2 parrots flying to their masters as pretty as can be.

Eating my birthday cake with Melodie

we went to a Race Rock Cafe where cars hung free-

luckily they didn’t fall on me or inner child Melodie!

so we celebrated at a restaurant

with cars in air

All good things do come to an end

I had to get back home with my friend.

A baby was crying on the plane

now my birthday was that very day.

I gave her my doll Melodie

she stopped crying but wouldn’t give her back to me.

So I played to her like Melodie needed to sleep

by counting sheep

she then smiled and gave me a wink.

That little incident made my trip

I should put into a cartoon strip.

Baby Airplane 2000 by Suzae Chevalier

Flying back from Vegas in 2000 with my friend Ev

I was seating on the airplane I met a new friend.

She was a little girl who was crying and sad

I gave her a toy –

She became happy and glad.

She smiled while holding toy real tight

She didn’t want to let go she held on with her might

I had to tell her toy needed to go beddy bye…

She looked like she understood and gave back toy

With a smile.

Northwood Tree by Suzae Chevalier

 

The year was 2017
I was painting in Northwood West Palm
painting outside on street
I painted clouds and a tree.
Group painted all day
we kept painting till storm went away.
Stopped in Toys R Us–
great results of fellow painters galore.
All paintings will be in art show some day
I will put my artwork on suzae.
