ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you’ve been doing well.  Judy and
I are still among the living 🙂  This passed
week was a busy one.  Tuesday we went to
Presque Isle for Judy’s appointment with
her doctor and while she was being taken
care of,  I went walking taking pictures of
the ducks in the nearby pond.  Judy is OK,
it was just a checkup.  After that we decided
to stop at KFC and get us some Chicken to
have for dinner.  I took tons of pictures as
always there and back LOL.  Wednesday
it snowed quite a bit,  but I had already
made an appointment to have 2 new tires
put on the front of our car,  so Judy and
I headed to town with her driving no more
than 25 miles an hour LOL.  It was a slow
pace,  but better than having an accident.
So we’ve got new tires.  The back tires are
still good.  As usual I took pictures of our
drive to town and back hehehe.  The snow
had let up a little as we headed back home,
so Judy was able to drive a little faster 🙂
Wednesday we took a drive to town to do
a little shopping and in the process,  we
bought us a new mattress for our bed :).
Our old mattress was not doing so well
with springs popping up and hurting us.
It was used when we bought it and we
had it for about 3 or 4 years LOL.  Hey,
ya do what ya gotta do.  Anyways,  this
time we’ve got a brand new mattress and
believe you me,  it feels WONDERFUL 🙂
It’s a little thicker than the old one and
I thought our boys wouldn’t be able to
jump up and lie on it,  but Rocky showed
us that he could and would LOL.  That
ornery boy jumped up and began messing
up the bed that Judy and I had made up
just a few moments before hahaha.  He’s
silly.  Judy bought a water resistant cover
to put over the mattress just in case Rocky
does a naughty on it as he has been known
to do from time to time.  Anyways,  we had
to have the mattress delivered being that
our SUV is not large enough to carry it
in the back.  A guy at the store that does
a few odd jobs for Marden’s said he would
deliver for gas money,  but not until the
next day.  He called at 9AM  and delivered
it.  We gave him 20 dollars for his trouble.
He even helped me carry it in and put it
on the bed.  I went out the day before and
stood our mailbox back up and ducktaped
it with about 10 rounds of ducktape LOL,
then called our landlord and told him that
I wasn’t sure how long that would hold and
he came and nailed a lean-to on it hehehe.
It’s standing pretty good now,  but then we
are expecting 6 to 10 inches of snow again
tomorrow (Monday) and the snowplows
might plow it under again LOL.  That poor
mailbox looks like it’s been through war.
Oh well,  spring might find its way through
the snowflakes to finally take hold hehehe.
To be honest,  I am ready for the snow to
be gone.  I love snow,  but we’re on our
6th month of it and after about the fourth
month I’m usually ready for it to be gone.
Too much of anything can wear on ya LOL.
So that’s been pretty much our life for the
passed week.  This Tuesday,  Judy and her
sister Barbara are going to drive down to
Bangor for yet another of Judy’s doctor’s
appointments and while they’re down there
they’re going to visit with their little brother
Ricky that is in the nursing home.  So,  it
will be just me and the boys holding down
the fort LOL.  I’m sure we’ll find something
to occupy our time 🙂  I’ll more than likely
do a lot of writing and they’ll spend their
time seeing if they can disturb me hahaha.
God has most surely blessed our home as
we can see the blessings everywhere that we
look.  Yes,  we have a few rocky roads of
life,  but the rocky roads make the smooth
roads seem that much better.  Thank You
God for all that You have done for us and
for all that You will do.  Well,  I believe it
is time for me to be looking back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can find
a good word or phrase that I can use for
the title for today’s brand new poem.  So,
it’s away I go,  to that little place of my
recollection that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I may have found a decent
title about a 3rd of the way back in all of
my rambling and now after checking I see
that it has not been used as of yet,  but used
it shall be today.  Here goes…

Yet Another

Times and places
display different scenes
maybe of alikeness
but yet of other things.
Days are as numbers
as weeks multiply
changing perception
of all that’s gone by.
But yet another
of a mere mystery
can look almost like
something else you see.
Time is a player
that can mess with minds
bringing yet another
without warning signs.
Don’t let your ego
to deceive all you view,
for there’s yet another
that is just like you.
We all have limitations
of how and when ways
filled with yet another
of confusion arrays.
So let your eyesight
to be keen on your drive
as yet another day
finds you to strive.

There ya go,  I hope you liked the poem 🙂
and maybe even understood it.  I also hope
you enjoyed my rambling.  Last week was 1
of our better weeks 🙂  We’re excited for the
weather to warm a little,  but not too much.
🙂  My favorite temperature for spring and
summer is 65-75 F 🙂  That is perfect.  Judy
and I have plans to go on some scenic drives
this summer,  but that is still in the future.
I guess I’ve told you all that I have to say
other than of course what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,  but no
extras or Christmas related.  Maybe next
week.  I also wrote once again 22 haiku
for all of the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either of both that
you like.  Now,  I believe it’s time for me
to be searching for that hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  OK,  so
where can that ornery off switch be trying
to hide this week????  Hmm,  is that piece
of paper alive?   LOL nope,  I see ya there
hiding under my sales receipt from the post
office LOL.  Maybe if you’d learn to stay
still,  I wouldn’t find you so quickly LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Sticky Situations

Our time is a path
that hides many views
as scenes that we find
that much later infuse.
Those sticky situations
that we come upon
when right seems right,
but it might be wrong.
It’s learning the truth
the best that you can
before you leap in fire
from the frying pan.
Learn from memories
and others mistakes
the way to prevent
a life of earthquakes.
Though you’ll still find
a few times you regret
as seasons pass you by
as a life’s cigarette.
A few moments found
that smoked on by
leaving hazy memories
while wondering why.
Then the situations
that stuck you real bad
will become as lessons
from all that you had.
Those sticky situations
that came up so fast
might be the lessons
forgotten from the past.

Celestial Dream

In search of heartbeats
time might display
a moment created
in a dreamful array.
Chance makes the scene
as your dreams arrive
presenting a moment
that then comes alive.
A celestial dream
that looks like a view
of a lighthouse scene
that surely came true.
It shined as an echo
like a rhythm of time
a moment you dreamt
deep within your mind.
We all have our dreams
of what we wish for
as times and places
through another door.
Those magical moments
of which we envision
a dreamland journey
as a minds decision.
We might not perceive
as the way others do
the celestial dream that
lives in me and you.
Yet for a time frame
you might recall
a time in your dreams
that you began to fall.
Then as you awaken
you find a lighthouse
standing there awaiting
for you to arouse.
The stars passed you by
as a blurring scene
as you woke up from
your celestial dream.

The Quickening

Life’s a network
of times and thrills
seasons perceptions
of trees and hills.
Time becomes art
as life goes its way
as the quickening
of a brand new day.
Leaves may change
as green to brown
before they finally
fall to the ground.
Yet they continue
until they let go
with change of life
to cease to grow.
The season’s life is
just like a dream
the quickening of
a sudden scene.
Green of essence
might still display
with golden grasses
from day to day.
God given journeys
to now and then
quickening styles
that surely begin.
Displaying seasons
a wonderful hue
as the quickening
a time to come true.

Ripples in The Harbor

Endless is the motion
of the ocean thereunto
as it ripples always
within its waters blue.
Found within the harbor
where time is said to be
as ripples in the harbor
beside the deep blue sea.
It holds within its mind
a time that then repeats
as it ripples onwards
with its endless beats.
Like a great musician
it plays a song so well
ripples in the harbor
as stories ones can tell.
It’s as an orchestration
that sings into the days
as it ripples onwards
to mimic all the waves.
As an oceanic radio
with its wondrous tunes
seeming so hypnotic
morning to afternoon.
Then as evening  comes
with every single star
the story will continue
from near and to afar.
Singing oh so sweetly
for you and I to hear
ripples in the harbor
of now and yesteryear.

Time Sits Still

When looking into
a passage of time
you might discover
an awesome design.
A created scene
from minutes flair
as time sits still
within a prayer.
Then looking deeper
you might be found
as seconds counted
as time goes around.
A God given day
a moment of rhyme
displayed so sweetly
to live in your mind.
You might find life
of a house of old
a timeless scene
that a moment told.
A God given blessing
that’s now the past
that still lives on
as a shadow’s cast.
It might be a dream
you dreamt one day
a blessed moment
a wonderful way.
A heavenly blessing
a place on a hill
sat with perspective
as time sits still.

Winter Gives Way

The snow is melting
as springtime begins
and winter gives way
to all that transcends.
It’s a seasonal story
that’s written in sight
painted by lord God
with truth to excite.
Each day’s a journal
that tells of the past
as winter gives way,
but yet not too fast.
The snow is melting
and fueling the seeds
of spring and summer
with all of their needs.
Watering doorways
as plants enter in
while winter gives way
for them to begin.
Life is a mystery
that lives and breathes
seasons of glory
as grasses and trees.
Flowers all blooming
of colors so sweet
with the aromas
their blossoms secrete.
Yet it might be hidden
within a display
until the snow melts
and winter gives way.

Enchantment

A magical spell
put onto our eyes
can often display
a wondrous surprise.
As a scene faraway
that time then begins
showing as lifestyles
deep within the winds.
Time’s enchantment
a moment’s force
created by dreams
to take on a course.
Seeming as fluid
times which to pour
as our emotions
take a magical tour.
Finding a breeze
and horses to gaze
within enchantment
wondrous displays.
Allow for your mind
to take in the view
and look on beyond
the deep sky of blue.
See what God’s given
as magical scenes
within enchantment
found in our dreams.
Scented as dewdrops
the stories will grow
and our enchantment
will then surely flow.

Almost Heaven

Swinging in a swing
that a moment provides
displays all the beauty
as a heavenly ride.
Smelling all the grasses
and the nearby flowers
brings Heaven closer
each moment empowers.
You might only see
the vaguest details
as oceans of lifetimes
hoist all their sails.
Swinging in the breeze
of a minute’s acclaim
might then become
the best to attain.
For as you’re swinging
with heavenly views
you might discover
a wonderful muse.
Such as a homestead
with trees stood before
within almost Heaven
as memories soar.
Each time you swing
the pages will turn
giving more scenes
for you to discern.
Finding then peaceful
seventy times seven
a life within a swing
that’s almost Heaven.

Dancing Clouds

Up above our heads
might be a sight
a momentous scene
as glimmers of light.
Clouds displaying
all of their moves
dancing around
in cloudlike shoes.
Tiptoeing lightly
far across the sky
seeking to become
a song of hifi.
Sung in the breeze
way up high above
dancing emotions
and filled with love.
They sing silently
as peaceful waves
until there’s a storm
in future displays.
The dancing clouds
of a time’s embrace
can enhance sight
as smiles on a face.
They might form
a moment to view
the dancing clouds
in a sky of blue.
They may even sing
a song of time
just dancing around
creating a rhyme.
Becoming a style
that’s all their own
that dancing clouds
have only known.
The sky might sway
or seem to move
with dancing clouds
of a daily groove.

The View Behind

A photograph
of love so true
displays a time
another view.
A distant scene
becomes alive
as minutes pass
and times arrive.
With ship at sail
across the way
and birds flying
from day to day,
your camera may
not clearly be
so focused on
the sight you see.
It might look on
beyond that view
making real clear
a sight for you.
Yet the person
within your frame
becomes as life
that times attain.
For as the scene
becomes the past
it also becomes
a thought to last.
A mere memory
of distant days
that now lives on
as just a phase.
A time of life
as just a breeze
where life is as
the distant seas.
Then that view
within your mind
is love in front of
the view behind.

Haiku
for Apr 6,  2019

Living in the past
might tarnish all the minutes
of future displays.

Chance is a time
that might come very quickly
and leave just as fast.

In love with yourself
will become bittersweet
as you find the truth.

Wanting of moments
can often become confused
with what that we need.

Leaves of autumn
become another chapter
as winter brings snow.

Shadows of ourselves
live within our emotions
and all that ones see.

Time is just a place
that becomes visible space
as seconds tick on.

Feelings of hatred
can poison your daily view
and cause you much pain.

Links to a flower
are that of a seasons quest
to become much more.

Timid as the fox
many give too much caution
and never step out.

Never is a word
that many use to often
when they don’t mean it.

Floating as a cloud
a mind can become a storm
just waiting to rain.

Sensing aromas
can leave you without true sight
as it’s forgotten.

The face of danger
has many different views
that some never see.

Various portions
of a moment’s perception
might just be a lie.

Some of our chapters
are as pages of a book
that some never read.

Beginnings will end
as life continues onwards
into the future.

Turmoil of a rose
is that without a raindrop
or sunshine to grow.

Treating ones badly
without knowing all they strive
can come back to haunt.

The texture of life
can be that of emotions
that feels like manure.

Counting the minutes
as a day passes you by
can leave you empty.

We are as journeys
with pathways to discover
that tell who we are.
