Reflecting

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another fairly warm week,  but
it is gradually cooling down.  Life at the
Pearce’s Place is on the norm LOL,  but
on a different note,  I had the tumor on
my right shoulder removed Friday. Now
my shoulder is a little bit sore,   but by
next Friday when I have the stitches out,
it should be better.  It doesn’t hurt bad.
LOL Mostly the darn thing itches and
drives me batty hehehe.  I put a little
dab of Hydrocortisone anti itch cream
on it and that eased the itching a little.
I also had the doc/PA to freeze off a big
mole on my back.  Ok,  so do you recall
me telling you about my swelled feet and
ankles?  Well,  I went to see her Monday
and she took me off of the blood pressure
meds that were causing the swelling and
put me on some that makes me go pee
an excessive amount to lose the fluids
and by Friday I had already lost 6 lbs
of fluids LOL.  My feet and ankles are
much better,  but I am tired of peeing 🙂
Anyways,  that’s my so called life LOL.
I just now fixed Judy and I some brunch.
Now I am eating while I write.  So what
else has gone on around this place????
Hmm,  well it’s been not too eventful in
these parts.  Yesterday (Saturday) Judy
went over to her sister Trudy’s house
for a cook out.  I was still a bit on the
sore side and stayed home and did my
writings and what not.  Right now it is
84 F degrees.   It’s supposed to be in the
mid to lower 80’s all week.  That’s not
too bad,  but still too warm for me,  so
I reckon I’ll be staying indoors quite a
bit 🙂  My weather program shows a little
rain for Wednesday.  That could change
at the drop of a hat though.  Judy found
out that the diner at the Irving truck stop
 in town sells chicken to go,  so we have
made plans to one day this week stop
and get us some.  The nearest Chicken
place such as KFC is 50 miles away 🙂
LOL we lead such an exciting life huh.
I think I mentioned a week or so ago
about my computer chair breaking,
but just in case I didn’t,  it did and I’ve
ordered a new one that should be here
hopefully soon.  Then I can give this
chair back to Judy.  She has shorter
legs and uses her laptop,  so she sits
a lot lower than I do.  She’s using a
chair that we have kept in here for our
grandson Christian when he came to
stay for the weekends.  We miss him
a whole lot,  though we knew that the
day would come that he would grow
up and start other things in his life.
It doesn’t stop us from missing him.
Now I know how my grandparents
felt when I moved on with my life.
I’ve done a lot of reflecting on those
days and I regret moving so quickly.
We all have a few regrets in our lives.
Unfortunately they do happen and
time continues its pathways through
assorted doorways.  I thank God for
the chances through splendor that
my life has drifted through.  I should
also thank God for the many mishaps
in my life that taught me a few lessons
and made me stronger.  Yes they were
grueling,  but necessary to make me
who that I am.  Judy and I can feel
God’s presence with us as we go about
our daily strides.  Thank You God for
always being there for us and sending
a multitude of angels to watch over us.
Now,  I believe it’s time for me to read
back on 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
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE…..
I believe I may have stumbled on a
decent title just about a quarter of a
ways back through my rambling and
now after checking I see that it has not
been used as of yet,  so used it shall be.
Here goes…

Reflecting

Time is a stage
with so many scenes
giving conclusions
fulfilling our dreams.
It might fall gray
as minutes move on
when soon a moment
is then long gone.
We may one day see
a time in a mirror
reflecting a moment
seen a bit clearer.
Yet when it existed
it passed you on by
not seeing seconds
and how fast they fly.
You might even see
yourself in a child
reflecting on a day
that you too ran wild.
Remember the good
that time’s projecting
when you find you’re
but only reflecting.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even my rambling 🙂  There’s
not much else to tell you.  The boys are
doing well.  Boys as in our dogs Benny
and Rocky for the new readers hehehe.
It looks to be a pretty day today from
what I can see out the window.  I might
go outside with the boys and play with
them if I get to feeling up to it 🙂  I’m
sure they would love it.  Anyways,  that’s
all I’ve got for ya other than what I tell
you every week and that is,  I wrote a
few more poems and haiku for ya.  Yep,
10 more poems and 22 more haiku for
all of the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like.  Now,  I believe it’s time for me
to begin my search for that silly hardly
ellusive off switch,  but not before I wish
you a wonderful week and may it be full
of blessings.  Okie dokie,  so where is
that confounded off switch trying to hide
this time???  Hmm,  LOL you’re gonna
have to start finding new hiding spots.
You’ve hidden behind my nose spray too
many times.  Plus being that you aren’t
able to be still,  you’ve always got the
bottle rocking LOL.  Try harder dude 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Day of Grace

Times divine
sudden scenes
finds a home
within dreams.
A day begins
minutes move
showing true
a daily groove.
Becoming life
of heart’s array
life as waves
lives day to day.
Time lives on
day and night
within scenes
changing sight.
Try and find
a certain taste
Heaven’s kiss
a day of grace.

Colors Precede

Minds of a moment
can often begin
creating turnstiles
of now and again.
Seasons displaying
might be a stage
as colors preceding
that moments engage.
Creating viewpoints
within the leaves
life might seem as
a spider’s weave.
Time in perspective
enhances scenes
as lifetimes designs
of wonderful things.
Within the distance
ones might find
scenes bestowing
autumn’s design.
Scenes from nature
giving us a glance
sung within ripples
 as a heavenly dance.
 Giving us a picture
as a scenic view
formed on a stage
of then thereunto.
Take in the beauty
all that you need
leaving the others
letting colors precede.

Summertime’s Sun

Sun of morning
shines so bright
unleashing time
to extinguish night.
Seconds tick on
leaving in place
summertime’s sun
of life’s embrace.
Acting as a door
a summery day
it swings open
in a magical way.
Joined by songs
within a breeze
summertime’s sun
as a time to seize.
Seek the beauty
before it’s done
finding peace in
summertime’s sun.

Living Pictures

Moments discoveries
challenge our sight
pictures upon pictures
of seagulls in flight.
The ocean of waves
might seem real calm
as pictures come alive
to then continue on.
Creating perspectives
scenes within blue
as the sky’s reflections
with a cloudy hue.
If you are searching
for a moment in time
you may just discover
a wonderful design.
It might have a story
written with words
formed within pictures
of a few sea birds.
Fluttering as angels
above an ocean scene
maybe to become as
a moment’s dream.
It may seem illusion
as a view displays
becoming as a picture
of our distant days.
Find a perspective
of a blessing’s design
within living pictures
to live in your mind.

Summer Breeze

Fragrant aromas
times own detail
summer awakens
to surely prevail.
Creating pictures
for us to partake
capturing photos
times wide awake.
Time is a display
found in a view
seeming heavenly
to help you renew.
Giving you peace
as times to attain
formed in our life
as a windowpane.
Time finds ways
in fields and trees
that gives life to
a summer breeze.

Suddenly Shadows

The fissures in time
might open real wide
letting in shadows
of minds scenic ride.
Creating memories
with timeless desires
filled with illusion
a heartbeat acquires.
Suddenly our mind
finds wonderful views
seasons of grandeur
and choices to choose.
Finding the rhythm
as a pathway to trod
shadows reflections
as heartbeats of God.
Breathe in a breath
of the seasonal flows
finding your peace
in suddenly shadows.

A Single Breath

Looking deeply
within our mind
a single breath
forms a design.
Becoming fuel
a timeless seed
a single breath
to then proceed.
Leaving a stage
as ageless dreams
sewing together
magical scenes.
A breath of life
as an open door
becomes alive
as shore to shore.
Creating a path
of so many views
that might only
surely bemuse.
Breathe in deep
a new day’s sky,
then let it be as
some wings to fly.
 Let the sadness
to fall from you
and find a day
of another view.
You can learn
from what’s left
as you breathe
a single breath.

Beyond The Clouds

We might perceive
but only a storm
when gazing above
and seeing it born.
Yet in the moment
it might only be
clouds rearranging
a new sight to see.
Beyond the scenes
might be the sun
found as awaiting
a moment of fun.
It may even show
a place of dreams
seeming so timeless
as seasons cuisines.
Becoming a portal
a pathway of sky
cloudy formations
that seem to fly.
Artwork of Heaven
might then display
a time and place
of white unto gray.
For our perception
may only perceive
minutes passing
awaiting to leave.
Time may awaken
what heaven allows
rain with rainbows
beyond the clouds.

Memorized Minds

We often remember
a time and a place
found in memories
of a familiar face.
Seeming as dreams
of a made up time,
but be as turnstiles
remembered design.
Time’s written down
as a wondrous view
maybe of a moment
wished now so true.
Memories of a place
might have a flow
within the pictures
of a season of snow.
Time might display
some magical finds
found in photos of
memorized minds.

Seasons of Soul

When seasons come
within their style
they might bring
a moment’s smile.
There might be pain
with sad avenues
in seasons of soul
choices we choose.
Found in a doorway
a stage comes alive
bringing in windows
of times to contrive.
A life of connections
moments bestowed
becomes perspective
as our life’s alamode.
We might encounter
a pathway of leaves
as autumn’s colors
found in the breeze.
Life is with changes
as day meets night
providing blessings
enhancing our sight.
So many viewpoints
become as our gaze
when ones sadness
melds within ways.
Search for blessings
within each goal
and be enlightened
in seasons of soul.

Haiku
for Aug 8,  2020

Time is just numbers
that’s often clocks on the wall
telling their story.

A moment we miss
might come back in a nightmare
that’s filled with regret.

Moving a mountain
happens often real slowly
and not in our sight.

Scenes we often see
might only be illusions
that we bring to life.

Patience is acquired
through a life of conundrums
that might wear us down.

Respect for others
will often be your shadow
walking behind you.

Trying not doing
makes not a true commitment,
so do what you can.

Many of our thoughts
are held within a portal
of our doubts and fears.

Stages of desire
will often become our needs
living in a lie.

Trials and errors
that many view as failures
might be as teachers.

Counting the breezes
that blow within our lifetimes
we might find our breath.

Within emotions
there are many decisions
that might not be right.

Between right and wrong
lies a few choices to choose
to create a path.

Windows of our soul
can become tarnished memoirs
in need of some prayer.

With various speeds
comes different perception
with minutes that pass.

Enlightened doorways
might show glances from within
as a warning sign.

Traveling concepts
can often be only dreams
that the mind creates.

Passion of flowers
becomes a living array
of seasonal sights.

The storms in our life
can create strength within us
if we don’t give in.

Lasting impressions
are often within mistakes
that we made one day.

The stem of a rose
holds many thorns to protect
so it can blossom.

Current conditions
might be just a passing phase
of a breath we breathe.
