ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another wintery week gone by,
but we did have a day of 45 F degrees 🙂
and it rained which then presented a new
problem when the temperature went back
to normal.  The rainwater froze leaving us
a skating rink for a driveway LOL.  Even
using my cleats it’s hard to walk out to
check the mail.  I had to walk on the edge
where there was a bit a frozen snow to
make it to the mailbox and back safely.  I
did though end up on my back when I was
walking into the porch and my cleats hung
the bottom of the doorway and did not
let loose LOL.  My lower back feels like
I was kicked by a horse.  Oh well,  that’s
life hahaha.  Hehehe you should of seen
the boys on the ice.  Benny and Rocky
were sliding all over the place.  Rocky’s
little legs kept sliding as he wanted to
come and see me.  He made it after a
bit of a struggle.  LOL I think Benny’s
learned how to ice skate.  I’m sure that
our landlord will do as he always has and
send someone out to spread some dirt
onto our driveway.  We’re expecting a
little snow this evening and then more
come Wednesday 🙂  It’s 30 F degrees as
of this very moment,  but supposed to be
6 F degrees by morning and then a high
of 11 F degrees for Monday.  Yep,  it’s
getting back to normal hehehe.  I’m not
quite myself today.  My allergies have
literally kicked my butt.  They’re a bit
worse than normal,  but I’m reasonably
sure it will pass.  LOL I think I may of
sneezed my brain out.  It is real hard to
think right now,  but I think I’ll manage.
We went this passed week and got the
boys their new dog tags (registered) 🙂
They’re good for yet another year now.
As a matter of fact I just stopped with
my writing and Judy and I put their
new tags on them.  I had to go out
early last week and dig out our mail
box so that the mailman can get to it.
I may have to do that again soon LOL.
The poor mailbox has been pummeled
by the snow that comes off of the snow
plows when they pass by.  LOL That’s
life up in the northeast 🙂  I’ve gotten
quite a few awesome pictures to put in
my stationery this week.  We had to
make our way to our landlords house
with our car on an almost flat tire and
thankfully he had an air compressor.
We then drove to town to have the tire
checked for leaks,  but they checked
and found no leaks and said that the
weather was the cause of it losing its
air.  It might have been getting low
and I just didn’t notice it,  but when
I dug the car out last Monday I got a
surprise as I then noticed that it was
almost flat.  No matter,  it’s fixed now.
I guess I’ll pay closer attention to the
tires from now on LOL.  Thankfully
God is still keeping an eye on us as is
the many angels that watch over us 🙂
Yep,  Judy and I feel very blessed.  We
have all that we need and even a few
of our wants have been sufficed.  Life
is good.  I think it’s now time for me
to be taking a trip back through all of
my rambling to see if I can find me a
good word or phrase that will work
for the title for today’s brand new
poem.  So it’s away I go to that little
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE 🙂
I think I found a decent title that to
my surprise I have not used as of yet,
so used it shall be today.  Here goes…

Thankfully

Wishes and wants
of each times desire
brings forth a view
of a raging fire.
Burning churning
things we see
wants we’re wanting
through history.
We often will find
a window view
something enticing
we wish for anew.
As the days pass us
time moves along
as God gives what
will help us be strong.
Yet as some struggle
with a wanting array
God is still God
the same as yesterday.
He so thankfully
forgives when we sin
as the blood of Jesus
does time and again.
Allow for His love
to help you to see
that He’s in control
of what that will be.
Time is an ocean
with waves that unite
and give us thankfully
chance to make right.

I hope you liked the poem and it maybe
even gave you some peace.  I also hope
you enjoyed all of my rambling hehehe.
It’s amazing how much I can always dig
up to ramble about LOL.  I checked the
TV schedule just a bit ago and it seems
America Ninja Warriors is new tonight,
so that’s what we’ll be watching 2 hours
of LOL.  Then we might just watch a few
game shows on GSN 🙂  So that’s about
all I have for you other than what I tell
you every week and that is,  I wrote a
few more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
10 more poems with 2 of them being a
bit Christmassy.  I also wrote 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 do
believe it’s time for me to be searching
for that ornery hardly allusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.   Now where can
that ornery contraption be hiding at
this time?  Hmmm,  I don’t remember
having a salt shaker that danced hehehe.
What on Earth are you doing?  Were
you in need of a dancing partner LOL?
Gotcha,  see ya click zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

A Passing Ship

Summer’s days
within the seas
show the signs
of season’s breeze.
The signs of life
as passing flings
as a passing ship
in seasons scenes.
Opening wide
as doors of time
a passing ship
displays its mind.
Speaking words
of its desires
a passing ship
of raging fires.
All of our wants
can turn to ash
changing needs
into our trash.
So sail the seas
of need and hope
and find within
a way to cope.
Just like a ship
in waters blue
you can change
your daily view.
Allowing truth
to be your stride
as a passing ship
with God inside.
Search for peace
as days go by
even when waves
are crashing high.
Blessings come
in turmoil’s grip
giving strength
as a passing ship.

Glassy Waters

It seems to shimmer
it seems to shine
as glass in a river
of time after time.
The water’s so clear
as surely it flows
pouring as a window
a moment bestows.
The same as within
our thinking arrays
searching grasping
wondrous displays.
Yet many handholds
do not belong
seeming as glassy,
but they’re so wrong.
Sometimes our views
are in disarray
seeing glassy waters
on a cloudy day.
Not seeing the truth
in waters that pour
we might find times
of a sinful allure.
Finding only good
in a wrongful path
can become Hell
in shadows we cast.
Take now the vision
much better for you
in the glassy waters
with truth to accrue.

Summer Flowers

Sunshine shining
bright to see
sets in motion
life for free.
The summer sun
displays a hue
a time to find a
wondrous view.
Summer flowers
show their style
with a little
summer smile.
Some sunflowers
might just bloom
sharing moments
times attune.
Life’s a window
opened wide
allowing flavors
to come inside.
Beginning sights
as spring arrives
summer flows
in many lives.
Summer flowers
start to dance
with the scenery
they enhance.
Yet in winter
it’s a dream
summer flowers
just a theme.

Places In Time

Minutes march onwards
as time might repeat
displaying Christmases
with winters receipt.
Those places in time
that we might recall
as a little country drive
that time did install.
We may remember
a little house on the way
in the places in time
of a Christmastime day.
You might even feel
the feeling once again
as a picture comes alive
with the magic within.
Living as a turnstile
breathing as a blessing
all those places are like
Thanksgiving dressing.
Tasty little morsels
of a passionate place
scented that of Christmas
with a wintertime taste.
We each have memories
that might come and go,
with some of sunshine
and some of snow.
Yet a mere photograph
will help to remind
of a Christmas of then
in the places in time.

Powdered Phase

Distant scenes
of a whitish glow
are powders of time
the essence of snow.
Living as crystals
gathered in white
powdery moments
oh such a sight.
Scented of winter
a Christmassy way
white snow compiles
an awesome display.
Time is a factor
of so many dreams
painted so Heavenly
wondrous cuisines.
I look upon it
as snowflakes fall
creating landscapes
with sights over all.
It’s as a pageantry
that comes into view
displaying blessings
for me and for you.
A white winter scene
becomes my desire
feeling up my mind
with more to acquire.
Sitting with pictures
of a powdered phase
brings then alive
those wonderful days.

Sometimes Skies

Evenings remembered
time becomes still
creating pictures
that moments fulfill.
The sometimes skies
are as changes in date
times that become
what many anticipate.
A snow laden ground
with a wintery theme
below sometimes skies
is a wonderful scene.
Time wafts in the air
as a flag in a breeze
as the sometimes skies
reshape all the trees.
Creating shadows
as a dormant display
as trees stand sleeping
in a wintertime’s day.
Christmas is awakened
as a time so divine
minutes ticking
inside of the mind.
These special moments
that seconds unveil
are just like a present
of a Christmas detail.
Sweet Heavens gifts
we see with our eyes
are times we remember
of the sometimes skies.

Crossing Bridges

Life’s encounters
come with chances
crossing bridges
to advances.
Though so distant
a bridge may seem
it gives pathways
from in between.
Time permitting
life goes around
creating moments
from up and down.
We might see times
of wintery whiles
with water flowing
in scenic styles.
Life can become
a learning path
if we cross wisely
not too fast.
Crossing bridges
to now and then
needs some patience
before you begin.
Allowing minutes
to show their pace
not just running
in a race.
Let ones guide you
that which know
what to do
and where to go.
So don’t hurry
what is not known
crossing bridges
all alone.
For some troubles
on distant ridges
await for many
crossing bridges.

New Days Begun

Each day we find
is a new to start
to give it our best
and take it to heart.
New in a phase
time moves along
days to be counted
right and of wrong.
We are as flowers
some for a day
lilies blooming
our own little way.
Each day begins
with anew to find
lifetimes within
a moment of mind.
Some last a while
and some are fast
to become as life
of a shadowy cast.
Each heart blooms
of a certain degree
as that of a flower
that many eyes see.
Yet many watching
only see a view
and never knowing
what’s really you.
There may be weeds
that live within
planted by many
that you let begin.
For as we struggle
with time after time
we also grow weeds
for others to find.
Yet as a doorway
to a new rising sun
there are chances
of new days begun.

Ghosts of Sky

A slight of time
a sky of blue
a time becomes
a wondrous view.
Drifting essence
time becomes
clouds above
in season’s sun.
The ghosts of sky
begin their phase
drifting shifting
through the days.
Mere reflections
become voice
of all the ghost
that times rejoice.
Floating boating
a sky of seas
the clouds display
a life of breeze.
With the minutes
that carry on
the ghosts of sky
are never gone.
Some days hazy
or hard to see,
but they’ve there
a slight degree.
So many seasons
fly on by
leaving memories
ghosts of sky.

Amidst The Leaves

Blessings of life
that times expose
might be as leaves
that seem as a rose.
All of God’s beauty
goes beyond the sky
hung within seasons
that time flies by.
Amidst the leaves
that seasons portray
time is as blessings
in a magical way.
God provides scenes
to carry us through
timeless designs
within thereunto.
We may see only
leaves of green,
but look closely
and find each scene.
The colors of time
that life unfolds
amidst the leaves
of young and old.
Look passed the view
that stands so tall
and find what’s there
that’s maybe so small.
For when magnified
a moment perceives
the God given beauty
amidst the leaves.

Haiku
for Jan 26,  2019

Desperate people
often move without thinking
and end with regret.

Shadows of ourselves
live in the people we’ve met
as their memories.

Today’s emotions
might look foolish tomorrow
as we then reflect.

The sky above us
can enhance dreams within us
if we will look up.

Seeking for slumber
as an escape from the truth
only postpones it.

Wintertime’s snowflakes
are as Heaven’s emotions
with crystallized dreams.

Links to our heartbeats
are as passionate flowers
if watered with love.

Time is but a thing
that so many lose track of
because they don’t care.

Various  doorways
are but only window views
for us to look through.

Living in a dream
can become many nightmares
that the truth enhanced.

Seeking for the truth
you’ll come upon many lies
seeking to deceive.

Sharing a moment
can change your own perspective
as you bond your views.

Ignorance is bliss
unless you choose to not know
and then it is dumb.

A shower of rain
can wash away your sadness,
but yet leave you drenched.

Walking through darkness
you might discover your fears
or walk into things.

The light of a day
can find its way into night
as the moon reflects.

Beneath the starlight
holds many dreamers to dream
if they fall asleep.

Creating a breath
needs one firstly yet to breathe
and insert a breath.

Ones seeking glamour
might only find illusions
disguised as makeup.

Forgiveness is great,
for it enhances blessings
that others forgave.

Last place can be first
if the view is of lessons
learned from the journey.

Life brings surprises
we might not be ready for,
so open your eyes.

Hello my friends

It’s snowing big time outside right now
and it looks like we’ve already gotten a
foot or so to add with what we already
had LOL.  Yep,  it looks like I might
have to go out and use our snow blower
and or snow shovel to clear out places
for our boys to go potty.  Their little
legs aren’t that tall LOL.  so onwards
with my rambling.  Judy just got up
and joined the boys and I.  Right now
it is 6 F degrees outside and the high
for today is supposed to be 16 F,  so
it looks like Judy and I will be staying
in here most of the day.  I might go
outside to take a few pictures when I
do a little snow blowing.  For those
of you in the south that don’t know
what a snow blower is.  It’s a piece of
equipment that I push through the
snow and it tosses the snow many feet
away.  It clears a 13 inch path with
each passing.  We have a snow blower
and a snow shovel which are both 40
volts battery operated.  I also from
time to time have to resort to using
the manual snow shovel,  but not too
often 🙂  By the looks of things I may
have to do some snow blowing soon,
because the boys might need to go
out and potty real soon.  I bet they
had a bit of trouble going out when
I let them out earlier today hehehe.
LOL when I do,  I’ll let them come
out with me.  Rocky loves the snow
blower.  He gets right in front of it
and wants me to blow snow on him.
Silly boy hahaha.  Benny just likes
to watch LOL.  We’ve got some silly
boys,  but we love them.  They do
keep us entertained.  I have been
busy writing more poetry pictures
and now I have a 106 for book 10
and only need 54 more before I can
begin working on the book.  Yes,
I do stay busy.  Though I do believe
that I will stop at volume 10 and
then begin another project such as
creating a Christmas poetry picture
book and poetry painting book or
2 🙂  I might in the far future create
a continuance of the other with a
volume 11 or whatever,  but that is
not something I will do any time
soon LOL.  Well,  I decided to go
ahead and do some snow blowing,
so my fingers are thawing now LOL.
The boys wanted to come out with
me and Rocky just had to run and
get in front of the snow blower 🙂
He got pounded hehehe.  He soon
had enough and went up under the
porch to watch as Benny watched
me from a distance.  I had snow
all over me being the wind and all
blew the snow back in my face LOL.
Judy came out with us and took a
few pictures of me snow blowing.
She came out too late to catch a
view of Rocky getting snow blown,
but she got a picture of Benny as
he was standing right behind me
watching hehehe.  In any case the
job is done,  at least for a little while,
being I know I’ll have to go and do
it again real soon.  The snows still
coming down pretty heavy and yes
I love it.  I guess I wouldn’t love it
quite as much if Judy or I had to go
to work and I had to dig out the car
and all,  but still,  our landlord does
our driveway for us or else he pays
somebody to do it.  So I don’t have
to do the whole driveway,  thank
God 🙂  That was part of the deal for
us moving here.  He’s pretty good
about making sure that we’re OK.
He is sort of forgetful at times,   but
hey,  I am too LOL.  I bet if the guy
waits too long to plow our driveway,
he’ll have to do kind of like I did with
the snow blower,  a little at a time 🙂
I had to shave off the upper layer and
make another pass,  being our snow
blower only does 8 inches at a time.
Many cases I had to make 3 passes.
I just stopped and walked out to the
road to check on our mailbox and
yeppers,  it’s been pounded by the
county road snow plows again LOL.
It’s still up,  but leaning quite a bit.
It’s a good thing I went to check on
it because the lid was opened on it
and it was filling up with snow.  I
took a few pictures there and back.
Hahaha Benny and Rocky wanted
to come out with me and the first
thing Rocky did when he saw all of
my clearing was to go pee and then
him and Benny watched me walk to
the road.  When I came back I saw
that Benny was trudging through
the snow where I had walked and
he was just tickled pink to see me.
Rocky was poking his head up over
the snow watching me as well LOL.
God has been good to us.  Judy
and I have all that we need.  Maybe
not our wants,  but our needs.  We
do enjoy these little boys that run
amongst us.  It’s sad that their life
span is so short,  but we have no
control over that.  We’re thankful
for the time that we have with them.
Thank You God for all of the many
blessings that you have given us and
all that we have yet to of received.
Now I believe it’s time to begin my
journey back through all that I have
written here to see if I can find me 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 the lil
place of my recollection that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  It
looks as though I may of stumbled
upon a decent title about a quarter
of a way down from the beginning
of my rambling and it seems that
I have not used it as of yet,  so used
it shall be today.  Here goes…

Entertained

The lives we lead
might not be great,
but seen by many
they might debate.
We have the clouds
to watch each day
and sky above
to kneel and pray.
We’ve got a heart
with a given beat
as time goes by
we sit and eat.
So many minutes
we’re entertained
by the moments
that seconds attained.
Though we might
not see the view
as entertainment
for me and you.
Yet if we remember
a time far away
as us ourselves
in a different way.
Building sandcastles
or snowmen by few
we were entertained
with things we’d do.
God gives choices
to choose our path
sometimes misguided
from times of wrath.
The loss of loved ones
or gain of sorrow
begins a turnstile
to a sad tomorrow,
but if we don’t allow
that time to live
we can find blessings
to share and give.
Don’t let boredom
to be just attained,
let God’s blessings
keep you entertained.

There ya go 🙂   I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even enjoyed all of
my rambling hehehe.  It’s getting a
little warmer LOL.  It’s 10 F degrees
now 🙂  We’re expecting another 5
to 8 inches of snow tonight hehehe.
I love the snow.   I have no clue to
why some people live up here,  being
it seems all they ever do is complain
about it.  I didn’t care for it near
as much as I do now while Judy was
working,  because that meant for me
to have to dig out our car in the
worst of times LOL,  but even then
I would play in the snow while I was
shoveling 🙂  Hey,  I’m a Texan and
I had never seen this much snow 🙂
Well it’s time for me to be telling
you what I tell you every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,
but no extras for you this week.
I also wrote 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.  So now
it is time to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but
not before I wish you a peaceful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now
where can that ornery off switch be
trying to hide this week?  Hmmmm,
I think I see my nose spray wobbling
and unless the house is shaking,  it
should not be LOL.  I see ya you lil
varmint.  Maybe if you’d try staying
still and not doing a little nervous
dance all the time,  I might not find
you so freaking easy hehehe,  but then
again that would make it hard on me
finishing my journal,  so continue on.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Flight Through Eve

The day finds end
within a setting sun
as evening begins
as time on the run,
An evening flight
as times transpose
begins its quest
as a budding rose.
The sky might be
as a sudden dream
a timeless stage
as a raging stream.
With ins and outs
of a daily view
a flight through eve
might envelop you.
Becoming alive
as time fades away
on a mere journey
for another day.
We each have time
to do what we will
to either take heed
or roll down a hill.
As so many stories
are just a fish tale
planted in minds
if life’s not so well.
Our lives might be
hard to perceive
as the end of day
a flight through eve.

Rowing Through Life

Found as a portal
time pours on through
while we are rowing
the best we can do.
Each of us has burdens
through life in a way,
but some may not seem
so bad to display.
Yet we do not know
how a person is inside
as oars may be broken
that time has applied.
Their time may be torn,
but might not be clear
showing only smiles
that aren’t so sincere.
Rowing through life
in a boat of survival
seeking for peaceful
a point of their arrival.
The waters might rush
with currents so great
that carry them on
to an untimely fate.
So don’t be so quick
to judge how ones row,
for there may be much
that you don’t know.
They might be filled
with pain and strife
doing the best they can
rowing through life.

Silky Sky

A sky of blue
with clouds weaved in
displays a view
that times transcend.
Seeming so silky
as clouds drift on by
becoming a painting
that times multiply.
Within the artwork
is a heavenly view
with clouds woven in
a deep sky of blue.
It becomes as a web
for times to explore
as the sky opens up
like a heavenly door.
God gives the beauty
for us to define
as we look each day
for a peaceful mind.
Artwork is changing
as clouds drift away
defining another sight
of yet another day.
Yes life can be good
if we look on beyond
the sadness and grief
for ones that are gone.
Look to the heavens
and find a new high
as the joy then within
the clouds silky sky.

The Darkness

Just like a shadow
the night shines through
becoming the darkness
to envelop you.
It can enhance fear
as the darkness begins
displaying the shadows
of time and again.
Seeming as a doorway
that time opens wide
to allow what all we fear
to come and reside.
Don’t let the darkness
to fill you with fear,
for its only power
is what may appear.
A branch or an item
might show a scary sight,
but it’s only because of
shadows in the night.
The night light if any
may form in your mind
a scene in the darkness
real fearful to find.
Yet so many times
what we see is just fear,
for in the darkness
we cannot see clear.

Traces of Time

Some days discovered
are as of the past
retracing footsteps
as shadows they cast.
Traces of ventures
that timeless discovers
can become doorways
that our life uncovers.
Some as windows
that we look through
and others may be
just living in you.
The traces of time
that become our glance
might be the best times
life’s song and dance.
Maybe with colorful
leaves shining bright
found in the traces
of history’s light.
The sunshine of times
might fall into place
and form in your mind
a sign of a trace.
Designs you remember
from winter to spring
might then embellish
a time which to sing.
Then within summer
and essence of fall
the traces of time
are designed over all.

Defining Blooms

Flowers of life
become as a scene
often as moments
just but a thing.
Many look away
and don’t ever see
defining blooms
in their history.
Some only see
a passing view
a wanted array
a wish to be true.
Yet as a blossom
time is a rose
blooming colors
sought to expose.
Not seeing clear
the scenes of time
 might be hard
for ones to define.
Defining blooms
of our yesterdays
might only see
the darkest grays.
So look beyond
your own misery
and see the sights
God’s given free.
Such as flowers
a moment attunes
found as blessings
defining blooms.

Storms Begin

Life’s a whirlwind
times explore
as storms come in
our life’s front door.
Storms are found
as time consumes
the scenes we see
with bitter fumes.
The gray skies show
a chance for rain
with some lightning
to then attain.
We might not see
the true blue skies
because of the ways
we might surmise.
For so many times
we choose our sights
searching for storms
in brightest lights.
Don’t let your mind
to drown in fears
found in illusions
your doubt adheres.
Look for rainbows
in storms of time
and formulate peace
within your mind.
For often good times
will enter within
found in rain clouds
when storms begin.

Little Bird

When some worries
find your mind
search the sky
from time to time.
You might see
a bird in flight
against the wind
an endless fight.
Yet it continues
to do what it will
the best it can
to surely fulfill.
Take in that sight
with a grasp on life
there’ll be struggles
there’ll be strife.
Yet if you strive on
and don’t give in
you’ll find favor
within the wind.
For with struggles
burdens of time,
stronger you’ll be
with a wiser mind.
Surely the lessons
will often be great
teaching us daily
finding our fate.
But still the vision
of hopeful inferred
can be a lesson
from a little bird.

River’s Smile

Winter’s journey
shows a view
a smiling river
thereunto.
It flows onwards
with its quest
smiling greatly
without rest.
The river’s smile
is winter’s ways
showing seasons
it displays.
We pass it often
and look upon
that great smile
just like a song.
For its smile
is catchy too
reflecting back
at me and you.
Life’s a journey
that proceeds
planting smiles
as daily seeds.
Time becomes as
our reflections
on this river’s
many directions.
The river’s path
shows its smile
snow of winter
to compile.
It flows onwards
to entice
oh so often
under ice.
It breathes water
with each mile
to show its teeth
a river’s smile.

Passing Phase

Words reflections
found in things
passing ventures
many scenes
become doorways
sights to see
a passing phase
of history.
Like a barn
on a country road
life displays
its time’s abode.
Weathered scenes
of life’s delight
a passing phase
of day and night.
You might see
a distant hill
a time in life
that does fulfill.
It might give hope
for better things
as remembered
rushing streams.
A moment might
become alive
a time and place
to now survive.
A passing phase
that surely shines
of the passed days
wondrous times.
You might even
see a fence
a time of life
of white intense.
The sight might be
remembered days
of your past
and passing phase.

Haiku
for Jan 19,  2019

Time is illusion
when hurry and want unite
creating each day.

Discerning flowers
might choose the wrong aromas
for some really stink.

The hills of today
are what we thought as mountains
that we saw before.

Often our burdens
are only the sands of time
with worry’s profile.

When left with choices
now might look impossible,
but hope lives with God.

Beyond the starlight
the imagination grows
thinking of what if.

Time gives us stories
as the minutes pass us by
leaving memories.

The quest of a bee
is of a seasonal flight
gathering pollen.

Living with sadness
and not seeking happiness
cannot move ahead.

Within emotion
there is silence that we need
to give us balance.

Leaning too heavy
on ones when you are in need
could push them away.

Flowers are flowers
and people are just people
that are different.

We are the seasons
as the days become flowers
awaiting to bloom.

Losing direction
does not mean there is no chance,
if you turn around.

The butterfly’s path
begins as a caterpillar
without any wings.

A snowflakes lifespan
relies on the atmosphere
for it’s just water.

Links to survival
are found in our abilities
to learn and to grow.

Yesterdays stories
might be tomorrows visions
that ones dreamed about.

The past is the past
for it cannot live today,
because we have changed.

Some see the darkness
as but only less of light
and others find fright.

Thinking too deeply
can cause loss of perception,
so take a breather.

Our hearts can guide us
into many disasters,
so think with your head.

A Little Giggle

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another cold week up here in
the winter wonderland.  We’ve gotten a
bit more snow and it seems that all of
the reflectors that I put on our mailbox
did not prevent it from being hit by the
snowplows.  I’ve gotta go out today and
see if I can fix it.  I just had a thought
and called our landlord and he said he’d
go and fix it.  So,  that should take care
of that,  HOPEFULLY 🙂  So what else
is going on around the Pearce’s Place?
Well my fingers are doing better and get
this LOL,  I went to the doctor and had
x rays done last Saturday and they did
not call me to tell me about them until
yesterday evening (Saturday) hahahaha.
She said,  there isn’t anything broken
and I said,  I kind of figured that out
as I can bend them now,  but my little
finger (pinky) is still sore and I cannot
bend it fully, but I am guessing that in
time that will get better.  She asked me
if the brace did any good and I said,
LOL you mean the wrist brace you put
on my arm?  I took that off the minute
I got out to the car,  because it wasn’t
even touching my fingers and my wrist
wasn’t hurt in the fall.  She said that’s
good.  LOL Even Judy when I got in
the car had a little giggle looking at
the brace with my fingers sticking out.
Anyways,  next topic.  It got down to
0 last night so we had to leave the hot
water dripping to keep the water from
freezing.  We only have to do that in
the bathroom because that’s where
 the hot water heater is.  No need to
let the water drip elsewhere.  I have
the cabinet under the faucets in the
spare room opened so that the heat
from the furnace can get to it and so
that prevents it from freezing.  I may
be an old Texan,  but I have learned
how to live up here and take care of
things.  Of course I function better
in the cold than I do in the heat LOL,
so this is where I’ve needed to be all
along hehehe.  Now if we could just
get the snowplows to cease and desist
plowing over our mailbox LOL.  It
looks as though that is not going to
happen though.  Oh well,  it’s not
like it’s the end of the world.  It’s a
bright and sunny day today,  but the
high for today is supposed to be 13 F
which is what it is at this very moment.
It’s supposed to be -12 F by tomorrow
morning,  so the water shall drip on.
The boys are in here with me.  Judy’s
still asleep.  We stay up late being we
are both night owls.  LOL when I say
we stay up late,  I mean until around
4 and 5 AM.  I used to work nights
and those hours have stuck with me.
Judy also used to work nights so we
both have gotten used to staying up
all night and going to bed around 4
or 5 AM or somewhere thereabouts.
We watch game shows and then we
watch our favorite cartoons until we
are ready to go to sleep.  Life is good.
We have our fair share of struggles
and all,  but for the most part,  we’re
happy and life is good.  God looks
after us protecting us and guiding us
as well as our many angels that are
with us always.  Thank You God for
all that You have done for us and
all that You will do.  Now I believe
it is time for me to begin my search
back through all that I’ve written here
to see if I can find me 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 always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may
have found a decent title just about
a third of way into my rambling and
now to see if I have used it before.
Nope it hasn’t been used yet,  but
used it shall be today 🙂 Here goes…

A Little Giggle

With just a laugh
a time or two
can change a phase
of sad and blue.
A little giggle
that ones release
can display
a moments peace.
Use some laughter
to find a place
as a reflection
a smiling face.
Don’t let sadness
to live and breathe
find a giggle
to believe.
For there’s many
that need a smile
a little giggle
a laughing while.
So find laughter
when you feel blue
and in might help
some others too.

There ya go.  LOL,  I was thinking of
a video that I saw on Facebook where
a guy was on a subway or something
and he was looking at his laptop PC
and just began laughing and then soon
everyone on the ride was laughing and
smiling.  Sometimes,  all a smile needs
is a spark.  So,  Judy just walked in.
Now the boys can pester her hehehehe.
I gave them their morning treat when
I came in here and they joined me,
but they were wanting a treat from
her as well 🙂  We’ve got 2 little pigs 🙂
The boys have dried dog food in a
pan on the floor,  so they’re OK 🙂
I think they just like the attention as
well as the treats LOL,  but I refuse
to give them a treat every time they
want one hahaha.  Well,  that’s about
all I have for ya other than what I tell
you every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yep,
10 more poems,  no extras or of the
Christmas array.  I also once again
wrote 22 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 do believe it is time for me
begin searching for that hardly elusive
 off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most peaceful weekend or whatever’s
left of it and truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now,  where can that freaking
off switch be hiding this week?  Hmm,
searching high and low.There ya are
you little whippersnapper.  I see you
have found a new spot to hide,  but
not the greatest hahaha.  Hiding under
my caps that are sitting on the shelf
right beside me would of worked if you
hadn’t of started a landslide (capslide).
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Home and Mind

Life has beginnings
some timeless true,
but some may seem
as an image of you.
Yet as a doorway
opens your mind
there are beginnings
found time to time.
For in our homes
the walls might show
pictures hanging
high and Low.
Home and mind
is a place to see
a heartbeat beating
through history.
For walls might show
the best design
found in essence of
home and mind.

Life Is A Flower

The most important
days we may see
might be a flower
within you and me.
A flower blooming
displaying so true
the essence of life
in me and in you.
Time gives chances
for our show and tell
as flowers blooming
in hopes to prevail.
Telling of springtime
in view of a day
blossoming flowers
in a magical way.
The links to moments
that many unite
flowers displaying
as daylight and night.
Different opinions
is what so many see
as ones may look
at you and at me.
Life is a flower
that blooms desire
scented as seconds
of heartbeats afire.
God gives chances
to surely fulfill
as life is a flower
with love to instill.

Still But Moving

Need of a motion
to take in control
time may seem still
as moments unfold.
Just like the waters
of a lake or stream
still but moving
yet often unseen.
Life is momentum
as waters will flow
to take us places
found to and fro.
Still but moving
as minds travel on
creating ventures
dusk unto dawn.
Doorways open
to let in a view
still but moving
to carry us through.
Allow for dreams
to give you a ride
lifetimes counted
you carry inside.
A pond or a lake
might be a mirror
reflecting yourself
seen a bit clearer.
Don’t let weakness
to hold you back,
be still but moving
as lifetimes unpack.

Peace Becoming

Trials of life
in a pond of views
can become times
we wish to refuse.
Not wanting to see
the ripples in life
essence of waters
moments of strife.
Flowing so freely
time is a place
many are choosing
to hide their face.
Yet as a window
time can be seen
as peace becoming
essence of dream.
Pouring as a life
flowing as a way
to the beginnings
of a brand new day.
Peace becoming
a moment in time
found as perspective
within your mind.
Allow the waters
of your memories
to then awaken
the distant seas.
Sounding as music
a guitar strumming
your life can be
as peace becoming.

When Heaven Calls

A wintertime’s day
with snow all around
Heaven’s displaying
its sight to be found.
White as its passion
some scenes come alive
whispering voices
for a time to arrive.
When Heaven calls me
my heart will be full
filled with the essence
of strength to refuel.
For as God’s creation
life billows a scene
when Heaven calls me
and I hear angels sing.
Time is but a moment
that brings about views
sometimes regretful
with choices we choose.
Look beyond sadness
and find thankfulness
for all of the blessings
of more or of less.
For even the smallest
of blessings in time
can become larger
in another design.
So don’t just focus
on all of the wrong
for when Heaven calls
it’ll be just a song.

Wonderland

Often our shadows
come alive in the snow
with winter’s stories
that grow and grow.
Scenic as glimmers
of lifetimes so grand
time becomes stories
of a snow wonderland.
Each scene is created
by snowflakes that fall
landing and compiling
to most surely enthrall.
Seeming so magical
as it lands to become
a wonderland scene
beneath winters sun.
Shadows of amazement
are as winter’s stage
designed for a moment
to last age to age.
Becoming as memoirs
of stories of time
while ones will listen
to create in their mind.
A wonderland voyage
through now and again
becomes as a place
to once again begin.
A time you remember
with snow in your hand
might just be a time
of a winter wonderland.

Memory Lane

Driving down tomorrow
on yesterday’s path
finds times today
life moving too fast.
Recalling a moment
with a past day’s sun
can create a doorway
to new days begun.
Driving down pathways
of scenic survival
might display the times
or yesterdays arrival.
Showing how beginnings
together might unite
with what that’s passed
to create another sight.
Allow your wheels to roll
down the road of style
syncing life’s tomorrows
with a hopeful smile.
Look beyond sadness
and find a view to see
maybe as a moment
within your memory.
A time now as shadows
that helps you through
as you roll onwards
in life thereunto.
Those days you remember
that moments did attain
bringing forth gladness
on down memory lane.

Colors Of Style

Scented of autumn
many will remember
the colors of October
along with November.
The colorful leaves
begin their parade
syncing with minutes
as moments inlayed.
Time is but a journey
that displays a view
sometimes rainbows
or the morning dew.
The colors of style
are a scented array
often with the aromas
of April and May.
We might only see
what moments allow
as the time passes by
leaving us in a cloud.
Often in the distance
there might be more
the colors of style
for us to explore.
Those scenes might be
of an ocean or lake
or maybe some trees
for eyes to partake.
Yet in the meantime
search for a while
timeless perception
of the colors of style.

Planted Seeds

Life’s a garden
high and low
planted daily
sure to grow.
Some are found
as only weeds
in our gardens
dirty deeds.
Yet some flowers
will then bloom
if we will then
give them room.
Future beauty
needs some care
planted seeds
of here to there
So take heed
with every day
and plant seeds
a fruitful way.
For as time goes
dirty deeds
are from careless
planted seeds.

Passing of Clouds

As a story is written
the words might tell
the times that we find
in the future so well.
The passing of clouds
and blue sky above
the future is hopeful
and filled full of love.
Times remembered
might seem so gray
as clouds passing by
from day unto day.
The seasons we see
as an ocean of style
may have conclusions
with time to compile.
So many moments
have hopeful within
if we’ll look inwards
with chance to begin.
A firm grasp on life
with a positive seed
can plant a blessing
for things to succeed.
Time can be tricky
as it can cast a spell
creating hopelessness
that our times foretell.
Yet with a little prayer
and passing of clouds
your life can elude
the delusional shrouds.

Haiku
for Jan 12,  2019

Amidst ones thinking
a thought might be eluding
due to too much stress.

Living on the edge
can become a dead end road
if you fall wrongly.

Yesterday’s follies
could become today’s lessons
if we don’t forget.

The stress of hardship
can be tools to help us grow
if we learn a path.

A snowflake falling
has no clue where it will land,
but that it will land.

Looking for heartbeats
where only emptiness lives
creates loneliness.

Summertime’s flowers
start their slumber in autumn
to sleep through winter.

The weather changes
as life’s personalities
changing their rhythm.

In search of springtime
some never see the beauty
that winter provides.

 Memories of life
are created as mirrors
reflecting within.

Sought after choices
that are not clearly thought out
could find disaster.

Playing hide and seek
can become monotonous
if no one seeks.

The flowers of change
are as beauty that blossoms
creating seasons.

Heaven holds much peace
while our journeys all unfold
with numbers counted.

Blindsided attacks
on the structures of our life
might make us stronger.

We are as the leaves
that fall from trees in autumn
for we each will pass.

Whirring of the wind
speaks volumes of perspective
that time will display.

Shadows of ourselves
are as glimmers reflections
showing where we’ve been.

Hazards of minutes
live within forgetfulness
as they’re repeated.

Morning brings sunshine
as nighttime brings many stars
that are of the same.

The need of many
is thought to outweigh the few,
but greed becomes need.

Living without sight
only hearing what ones say
can be hindering.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you had a safe New Years.  We
sort of forgot about it as we just went on
with our same old same old until about
2 AM and I said hey Judy,  Happy New
Year 🙂  Not much has gone on here at the
Pearce’s Place.  I though have had a few
episodes of signing my poems 2018 and
having to go back and change the date 🙂
That’s happened just a couple of times.
I imagine I’ll do it a few more times until
the year 2019 sticks in my brain hehehe.
It has snowed a few times in the last few
days and we might get a bit of snow today
as well as throughout the week.  The snow
season is locked and loaded and I am sure
that it will continue to snow until March
and April as it has every year that I have
lived up here.  It’s a good thing 🙂 because
I love snow.  Although I hate it when it
starts melting and refreezing turning into
ice making it difficult to walk which gets
into another subject.  I slipped and fail
again Friday morning when I went out
in my HOUSE SHOES to take pictures of
the snow being that my house shoes have
no traction whatsoever LOL.  I had my
camera in my right hand and managed
to save it,  but my left hand caught the
proverbial Hell of the fall and I might of
broken my fingers,  but I won’t know
for sure until tomorrow when someone
reads the x-rays.  I didn’t think nothing
was wrong until most of my fingers began
to swell and turn black and blue,  so I
did not go to the doctor until Saturday
and then went to ER to have my hand
x-rayed.  We live in a small town and
there is nobody there to read the x-rays
on the weekends.  So at the moment I
only have use of my index finger on my
left hand which makes it rather hard to
type LOL.  Judy took me to the walk in
clinic in Houlton and the NP LOL get
this,  put a wrist brace on my arm.  I
looked and said,  now tell me how that
will help my fingers.  She said,  “It
will keep your fingers unable to move
so they won’t be hurt further”  and I
said,  “Look,  there are my fingers
and the brace is not doing nothing for
them LOL”  No matter,  when I got
out to the car,  I took the consarned
ace bandage and brace off.  LOL even
Judy thought the brace was stupid 🙂
Anyways,  I’ve been taking Ibuprofen
and the swelling has gone down a bit.
I’m a tough old codger and I’ll survive.
I’ve had worse things happen to me
in the past LOL.  So,  what else is there
to talk about?  Well,  Judy at this very
moment is fixing us some omelets for
our breakfast.  She just now brought in
the food,  so I’m gonna stop here for
a moment and eat………..eating………..
Done.  Judy decided to scramble the
eggs and fix some home fries to go with
them 🙂  Very tasty.  So it’s back to my
rambling.  I don’t have much else to
talk about.  Our little home  in the
country is still a peaceful place.  God
is still watching over us along with
many angels.  Yes I may stumble and
fall ever so often,  but my soul stands
firm in the hands of God.  So now I
believe it’s time for me to look 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.  And so it’s away I go to that lil
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE 🙂
I think I found a fairly decent title just
a few lines back and now after checking
I see that it has not been used as of yet,
so used it shall be today.  Here goes…

Our Little Home

When walls stand tall
or maybe a time
our little home
is a moment’s mind.
Standing in structure
love filled and true
our little home
each day is anew.
Stood in perception
stood with a while
our little home
has love to compile.
Found in a heartbeat
these walls never fail,
our little home
is great in detail.
You can be also
protected in time
as our little home
within your own mind.
Time is but a factor
that brings into view
our little home
that you can live too.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even understood it.  I also
hope you enjoyed my rambling.  Yes I
know I tend to drift in my topics hehehe.
Anyways,  it’s been a good day and I am
full 🙂  Judy and I are waiting to watch
one of our favorite weekly programs this
evening and it is God Friended Me.  We
love to watch this.  It’s about an atheist
that is sent many requests from God
on Facebook and it sends him and his
coworkers to help many people in need
while him and his working friends are
busy to try and find out who is actually
responsible for the busy God account.
  Anyways,  if you get a chance,  watch
it.  You might like it as well.  We have
a few other TV programs we like to
watch.  Judy and I enjoy watching TV
together being we’re interested in most
of the same type programs 🙂  It was
an act of God that put us together 🙂
So I guess I have told you all there
is to tell other than of course what I
tell you every week which is I wrote
some more poems and haiku hehehe.
Yeppers,  10 more poems and none of
them are Christmas related and I also
once again wrote 22 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 hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you
an enjoyable weekend or whatever’s
left of it and a truly blessings filled
week.  Now,  to find that off switch 🙂
Hmmmm,  where oh where can it be
that silly thing that’s hiding from me.
LOL I see ya.  right behind my box
of tissues.  That might of been a good
hiding spot if in fact you were not
tipping the box being the box is not
full LOL.  Try harder next week OK.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Shrouded Life

Clouds as windows
open views
a shrouded life
of daily news.
Scenes may uncover
a new days sight
with the essence of
a day and night.
A cloudy day
might hide the sun
just like a shroud
of said and done.
A certain view
might then expose
a shrouded life
a moment chose.
Maybe as bales
of hay defined
as life and times
within the mind.
Some scenic sights
that our eyes see
might be shrouded
in misery.
So look beyond
a clouded sky
and see the beauty
as time flies by.
For as the wind
of timeless views
a shrouded life
is choice to choose.

New Limerick Lullaby

Lost in a moment
a dream seems to dance
bringing forth echoes
of all it enchants.
Colorful flowers
as a story to tell
become as the passion
of a wishing well.
A dream shows the living
as flowers will bloom
while singing a lullaby
of the essence of June.
Time is recorded
in the mind of a day
as a magical moment
where the time falls away.
Leaving just a dream
as a lullaby song
sung by the flowers
as time moves along.
Timid is the season
as it shows us a sight
shining in the daytime
and dreamed in the night.
The story’s well written
as a dream in the sky
found as a perspective
a New Limerick lullaby.

Within The Fog

Thoughts are hidden
inside of our mind
when sleep is voided
from time to time.
Foggy perspective
as scenes sort of gray
become as a dream
of another time’s day.
Life is a doorway
we each walk through
to be who we are
and to do what we do.
Some are as shadows
of others that we see
their life may be a fog
as branches of a tree.
Don’t become a scene
of a timeless array
that’s found in a fog
of another time’s day.
For when the chapters
of fog lift from view
you’ll be exposed
with all that you do.
So,  the next time fog
comes into your shore
look on beyond it
for life to explore.
Deep within the fog
there may be good
just waiting to be seen
or be understood.

Looking Around

Sights and sounds
that pass us by
could become
a sight to sigh.
To sit and ponder
a dream come true
as life moves on
from old to new.
A country road
with much to find
goes on and on
a journey’s mind.
Looking around
at sights to see
the road displays
some times for free.
Some distant hills
of rolling scenes
might have hidden
rivers and streams.
The clouds above
may hold some rain
within minutes
of time to attain.
Time might become
an endless view
as minutes tick on
with a magical hue.
Thank God for times
He gave you and me
when looking around
from sea to sea.

Winter’s Splendor

The passing veils
of evenings sun
brings in tune
what has begun.
Winter’s splendor
times perceive
are with blessings
to believe.
Scenes as heaven
found on Earth
timeless sights
unfathomed worth.
Light of life
displays with love
a sky of beauty
from Heaven above.
Winter’s splendor
comes in tune
with the times
so many swoon.
A snowy stage
with essence found
winter’s splendor
sights and sound.
Heavenly morsels
of love so true
fill our cups
with things to view.
Many times pass us
leaving a gaze
of winter’s splendor
and magical ways.

Flowing

Through a dream
waters pour
times begin
a scenic tour.
Flowing growing
life aware
bringing portions
with a flair.
We are waters
pouring through
found as rivers
timeless too.
Often dreamers
will begin
flowing seasons
to transcend.
Some will flow
as tranquil times
and some others
crashing minds.
Turbulent waters
flowing drives
over river rocks
sharp as knives.
Time’s perception
becomes wet
for the things
we can’t forget.
Flowing seconds
turn to days
as our waters
changing phase.
Let your waters
surely find
all your anger
left behind.
Leaving peaceful
in your heart
with forgiveness
to impart.

Rocky Roads

Time turns to dust
as rocky road views
creating memoirs
to win or to lose.
Passing perceptions
become as a sight
within rocky roads
in our life’s daylight.
Ventures in training
that minutes explore
on many rocky roads
ones traveled before.
Scenes come to life
as an echo’s release
on down rocky roads
to uncover peace.
The end is a vision,
a sight which to see
on the rocky roads
with time as the key.
Heaven then awakens
with seasons of style,
blessings uncountable
surely compile.
Wearing on mindsets
as the seconds pass
leaving many lessons
that surely will last.
Becoming so scenic
Wearing on mindsets
as the seconds pass
leaving many lessons
that surely will last.
Becoming so scenic
as time is bestowed
life is a venture
on down rocky roads.

Within and Without

Piers of illusion
displays certain sights
scenes within scenes
daylight and nights.
Seen are the ripples
that begin with a view
speaking their volumes
in waters of blue.
Life is a pattern
so many can’t see,
for their perception
might not clearly be.
Within and without
as a timeless charade
many are the actors
in a lifetime’s parade.
Waiting for minutes
to hand out a frame
as a time and a place
for them to attain.
A pelicans perch
on a buoy of time
can create peaceful
found in your mind.
Look for the blessings
that minutes can give
come from our savior
to help us to live.
A page full of waters
with ripples of love
from God our father
and Heaven above.
Look beyond seconds
as hours multiply
and see the glory
that’s life’s apple pie.
Look within the pier
of fear and doubt
and find the blessings
within and without.

Shadows Meet

Those days remembered
become as a dream
a time and a place
we’ve one day seen.
Shadows of ourselves
are as memoirs to find
found within a turnstile
of a so distant time.
Shadows will meet
as the minutes procure
beginning a lifestyle
of a heartbeats allure.
Those days remembered
are as clouds floating by
scented with a moment
of a true blue sky.
We are as the actors
creating our destiny
as our shadows meet
in the things that we see.
United in passion
our hearts might display
seeking to remember
that one distant day.
Many times over again
our thoughts may unite
seeking once again
for that magical sight.
The past is a mirror
reflecting to repeat
what all we remember
as our shadows meet.

Believe

Open your eyes up
and look with belief
as you let doubtful
find some relief.
Believe in yourself
as you move along
allowing your lessons
to make you strong.
Find in the waters
of life evermore
the strength to begin
a time which to soar.
Strength is believing
in what God can do
with a little bit of time
and a little bit of you.
Believe in the truth
of God and His Son
and let Him help you
before you’ve begun.
Then learn to believe
in others as friends
timelessly counted
heartbeats transcend.
Look on beyond then
your yesterdays doubts
through all the in ways
and all of the outs.
Don’t allow Satan
to come and deceive
for Heaven is greater
just learn to believe.

Haiku
for Jan 5,  2019

In search of today
yesterday may interfere
and cause you problems.

Sheltered from problems
can hinder tomorrow’s growth
as weakness befalls.

We are as shadows
when we only repeat things
that others have learned.

Changing direction
does not guaranty better,
for it may be wrong.

The snow of winter
creates a season of bliss
if you allow it.

A lost perspective
can create havoc on life
if not understood.

Legions of anger
often causes war on ones
that are not involved.

Needless is worry
when it is about the past
that cannot be changed.

Searching for flowers
leaves some without a season
to show their true self.

Writing a novel
of a fictional journey
could create a truth.

Tomorrows doorways
are often yesterdays finds
that we overlooked.

A glimpse of today
might have fear written in it
that’s written in lies.

The best of the best
still has many flaws to find
in which to learn from.

The lives that we live
are the things that many see
and judge our pathways.

The light of a thought
brings life to a perspective
that some never see.

Many hide the truth
behind a large wall of lies
that time will destroy.

The future and past
connect through the present
as learning and learned.

Found in a heartbeat
might be residue of life
that is remembered.

Belonging to one
as a marriage of lifetimes
needs a little love.

The seeds of a plant
can become what they came from
if they are cared for.

Sharing a lifetime
with another of the same
needs patience and love.

The trials of today
are often spawned from life
that we just ignored.
