ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s nearing that wonderful day 🙂  Christmas
will soon be here.  I hope you are enjoying
this holiday season.  Judy and I are loving it.
Of course we have chosen to stay home for
Christmas and just enjoy the company a few
Christmas movies together and maybe even
watch it snow if it does.  The snow plows came
just a little bit ago and cleared our driveway,
so all’s good here.  We got our car door fixed
and the front brakes done,  so our car is good
to go.  We might go to Walmart tomorrow to
pick up a few necessities.  I might sometime
this week take an evening drive down the road
to take some Christmas pictures.  Quite a few
people have their houses lit up all Christmassy.
Yep, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
LOL it seems that our boy Rocky is beginning
to like snow.  Benny has always loved it as he
seems to never want to come in until he starts
getting cold LOL.  Rocky went out with me to
take a few pictures of our house and driveway
and he just started dancing in the snow and
spinning around in circles hehehe.  Benny at
that moment was asleep in his doggy bed near
the radiator heater in the computer room LOL.
Yep,  it seems we now have two snow dogs 🙂
Our old RIP boy Milo could take the snow or
leave it,  but mostly leave it.  Benny will get
out through the deep snow and start bouncing
around to get through it.  The other day when
it snowed,  both Benny and Rocky wanted to
go for a run in the field in front of our house,
but I had to say no.  Maybe we will do it on
another day.  They have their winter sweaters
on,  but of course they have a lot of hair that
keeps them warm.  They do not shed so they
do need haircuts often LOL.  But through this
time of year,  we’ll let them keep it and only
trim their paw hair when needed unless their
body hair gets a bit too long and then it’s trim
time.  Right now it’s 22 F degrees and snowing.
There’s not much going on around here other
than Judy crocheting and me writing poetry
and whatnot.  The boys are sleeping in their
doggy beds in the floor in-between Judy and
I.  The high for Monday is 22 F degrees and it
look as though it will be the same all week 🙂
The high for today was 24 F 🙂  It’s supposed
to be 10 F by Monday morning.  So we might
be wise to let our hot water dribble a little
tonight to keep it from freezing.  By the end
of the month I will be having to order us some
more heating oil/kerosene.  The cost of heating
your home up here is quite high,  but I’m sure
it cost the same or even more in other areas.
It’s worth it to me,  just to be able to see the
snow as it falls to Earth as it decorates all of
the landscape.  The temperature has dropped
a couple of degrees since I began writing.  It’s
now 20 F degrees.  Yep,  we all be huddled in
here until time to go to bed LOL.  This room/
the computer room is the warmest room in the
house due to our computers and it being such
a small room.  We also have a heat vent and
a small portable radiator heater in here if we
need it.  So,  yes,  we do stay in here most of
the time,  but the boys often have to go out
to do their pottying.  They never stay outside
for long.  They’ll come in through the doggy
door on the covered porch and bark to tell
us that they’re ready to come back inside 🙂
They’re good boys and never stray away too
far 🙂  Most cases they will not even leave
our driveway.  LOL The UPS and FEDEX
guys know them well and often bring them
treats when they deliver a package to us 🙂
I like it out here in the country.  It’s quiet
aside from the snow plows going back and
forth down the county road during winter 🙂
I know I am needing to get some more of
my books published hehehe.  I have 4 more
ready to begin converting to PDF and then
upload.  I have one more book almost ready.
It only lacks 11 poetry pictures and that’ll
be book 19 LOL.  Who’d a thought that I
would write so much hehehe.  I am surely
not promising this,  but just saying that I
might quit with book 20 and try to find me
something else to do,  but who knows LOL.
I had no clue that I would do more than 3
books hehehe.   Now,  if they would just
start selling :).  Oh well,  they keep my old
brain a ticking.  God has been good to us.
He has helped us when we needed the help
and sent angels to help us out of situations
that we could not get of on our own.  We,
I am sure have many friendly spirits that
are watching over and guiding us.  Thank
You dear Lord for always being there for us
when we are in dire need.  I pray that You
watch over our friends and family and the
many friends that have become our family.
Please send them angels and friendly spirits
to help them in their times of crisis. AMEN.
Now I do 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
place of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may
have found a decent title about a third of
the way back in my rambling and now after
checking,  I see that it has not been used yet,
so used it shall be today.  Here goes…

Ready To Begin

This day upon us
might have a view
a time and place
just waiting for you.
It might be a scene
you saw one day
or a wishful dream
of a scented array.
Let God guide you
in your daily quest
to help you to find
the truly very best.
When ready to begin
take Him to heart
and let God display
His work of art.
Don’t hurry through
 to plant your seed
for God in His time
will give as you need.
Begin with a prayer
and pray it within
and let God help you
when ready to begin.

Well,   there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even my rambling LOL.
I pray that I gave ya a smile or some hope.
I do believe that I’ve told ya about all that
I have to tell other than of course,  what I
tell you every week and that is I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems and 22 more haiku for all 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 to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but surely
not before I wish you a wonderful blessings
filled week and a MERRY CHRISTMAS 🙂
May your days be merry and your hearts
be aglow.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now where can that ornery off
switch be trying to hide this time hehehehe?
Hmmm,  I think I see movement behind the
curtain in front of me.   So you’re trying
to balance yourself on the PC speaker on the
wall while hiding behind the curtain.  What
happened,  did ya slip.  Oh,  you lost your
footing or something of that nature hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Resting Souls

The doors to life
will one day close
and leave in place
a choice we chose.
Tombs reflections
become as a sight
of resting souls
a day or night.
When we’re alive
we have a chance
to change within
a song or dance.
Look for times
to display truth
the lessons in life
from our youth.
We might find
we saw it wrong
times remembered
a distant song
All that we sought
now surely unfolds
with hopeful signs
of resting souls.

Living Perceived

As old and new
collides with time
it might become
an earthly rhyme.
Formed from eyes
that see a view
living perceived
of old and new.
The patterns made
may seem facade
as a side of life
that seems so odd.
For it came alive
as a passing gaze
a Godly blessing
within the days.
The miracles grow
beyond our sight
as living perceived
as day and night.
Find the beauty
and find the style
to give to you
a great big smile.
In time and place
as God conceived,
look for the good
in living perceived.

Autumn’s Mind

Remembering times
that came unto be
as colors of autumn
so fancy and free.
Mindful expressions
become a memoir
as sights and sounds
that seem as a star.
As pages of a book
the doorway is seen
as autumn’s mind
perceived as a dream.
Like a stage of leaves
it paints a display
as an ocean of time
of day unto day.
The scenic moments
enlightened and true
become as windows
with an autumn view.
You might envision
a sky up above
with autumn’s mind
filled full of love.
It’s created by God
as beauty to find
that seems as a dream
within autumn’s mind.

Clusters of Thoughts

Often our emotions
might seem as entwined
linked with the scenes
that stay on our mind.
Thoughts of a passion
for moments arrays
seeming to be clustered
within the passed days.
Time holds reflections
as a mirror to view
as clusters of thoughts
that live within you.
Some may be twigs
of a worrisome stage
living in the moments
as a turn of a page.
Find in the time frames
ways to move ahead
in lessons you learned
from all done and said.
Make them as the tools
to use to make better
your life in the future
to bring it together.
Creating a turnstile
from land of the lost
learned from the lessons
clusters of thoughts.

Unseen Passages

Times we envision,
places we’ve seen
might have passages
as a hidden dream.
Many days journeys
might hold a way
to unseen passages
through another day.
Moments recalling
might create a style
within a passageway
the seasons compile.
Becoming artwork
the unseen may find
masterful paintings
of a place and time.
It might seem faint
this view you see,
but become clearer
throughout history.
Forming a sentence
seeming as messages
that then hid away
the unseen passages.

Magic of Age

Remember the times
standing in a place
as the magic of age
within God’s grace.
It may be a moment
remembered so well
a magical picture
with a story to tell.
You might look back
and see it so clear
as the magic of age
of life’s yesteryear.
You might of stood
just taking pictures
within the turnstile
of many mixtures.
It might seem April
or May thereabouts
as the magic of age
the moments arouse.
Living in a memoir
of a written cuisine
tasting as the flavors
of times you’ve seen.
You might be seeing
the clouds in the sky
as you take pictures
of life by and by.
Seasons astounding
might turn a page,
but a picture recalls
all the magic of age.

Sailing Along

When within waves
of a daily cruise
sing of the songs
to win not to lose.
Find in the rhythms
a song you can sing
while sailing along
on a wave like wing.
Sing of the beauty
and sing of the style
while sailing along
and trying to smile.
Hear the waves lap
at edges of time
singing so fluent
matter over mind.
Look for the scenes
the waves give you
magical moments
in old and the anew.
Let the good flow
like a beautiful song
sung as a blessing
when sailing along.

Friends in The Blue

Reflecting on scenes
that time involves
creates the doorways
that a heart revolves.
Circling as images
that seem to become
echoes of moments
a passed rising sun.
Friends in the blue
as the ocean displays
scenes within scenes
of an ocean’s arrays.
A four legged friend
may stand as it waits
for you to toss a toy
that its heart elates.
You might find time
to look in the skies
and see the beauty
the greatest of size.
Then with a breath
see who’s with you
joined in a season
friends in the blue.

Speaking Sky

So many words
in evening’s sky
form the stories
as clouds fly by.
Timeless journals
words in place
colors speaking
we may embrace.
Uniting the views
with ageless sight
as a speaking sky
from day to night.
Clouds of purple
and pinkish ways
might become
a distant phase.
Heaven’s artwork
that God’s done
when the evening
is then begun.
It’s as Heaven’s
own apple pie
told as a vision
in a speaking sky.

September Moon

Awaiting Autumn
a moon might glow
also found waiting
for wintertime snow.
The seasons become
as a path in the sky
as the moon glistens
when passing us by.
Clouds might form
a momentous view
within a September
that seasons accrue.
Moonlight’s hidden
as clouds are born
becoming a dream
our memoirs adorn.
Written upon pages
in a book of time
a September moon
shows oh so divine.
Seeming as painted
and hung up above
it could be a dream
or a sky full of love.
It might awaken
a time come attune
this magical sight
a September moon.

Haiku
for Dec 18,  2021

The winds of seconds
become as a true journey
found within hours.

Thinking about rain
will not cause any raindrops,
but prayer can succeed.

Hiding from others
only leaves you in the dark
without any friends.

Shadows of ourselves
might seem much more than shadows
as others see them.

The force of nature
can create storms from sunshine
or peace from a storm.

So many events
are only activities
without a purpose.

Thriving on others
will not help you grow stronger,
so learn how to walk.

Turbulent waters
of the pages that we turn
can become peaceful.

Leaning too often
on the people in your life
can cause them to fall.

Time is a factor
when past and present collide,
so lose the baggage.

Various doorways
have various views of life,
so choose them wisely.

Hands held together
can be strength in a battle
as heartbeats unite.

Now and yesterday
hold the tools for our future,
but we must use them.

Winter’s arrival
is often that of snowflakes
and stories to tell.

The leaves of autumn
become as our memories
of colors of time.

Trading your problems
with ones that seem to have less,
might bring worse problems.

When threading a path
into the oblivious
you might find trouble.

Venturing outwards
where you’re not comfortable
doubts will surely thrive.

Today’s tomorrow
may differ from yesterday’s
for tomorrows change.

A window of time
can become as a doorway
if it is opened.

A forest of words
is heard as time’s emotions
within leaves of sound.

Traveling concepts
may get lost in the journeys
and end up confused.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a crazy winter up here.  Yep,  the
snow is all melted away and the temp now
is 38 F degrees with a high supposedly of
40 and tomorrows high is supposed to be
near the same.  Tuesday though the high is
supposed to be 33 F 🙂  Weird,  yes I would
say so.  It looks more like our springtime.
So,  all in a nutshell,  I’m hoping for some
snow so that it looks more like Christmas 🙂
I think most Mainers view me as weird LOL.
Most Mainers or at least the ones that I’ve
seen hate wintertime and the snow.  Not me,
but then I’m not a Mainer hehehe.  Being a
Texan,  I never saw much snow,  but now it’s
beginning to look more like Texas up here
with the snow count.  I hope that changes.
So,  what else is going on around this place?
Well the solar motion lights I ordered a few
days ago came and possibly tomorrow I am
gonna go outside and find places to attach
them to the house so that at night when we go
out,  we have some light.  I’ve got a few out
there now and it’s pretty good,  but I think
I am going to put a couple leading over to
our satellite TV dish so that when it does
snow,  I can see to get over to it to clear off
the ice and snow.  I have to use a flashlight
now,  but it makes it hard to do anything if
I have hold a flashlight.  I have one place
that I would rather be that I love more than
snow and that is Port Aransas Texas and
the ocean.  That is my favorite place in the
world.  Judy also loves Port A.  She said
if we could ever afford it,  she would want
to get a condo down there to stay half of
the year if not more.  We’ve got tons of
pictures and videos that we took when we
went down there for vacations when we
lived in Texas.  Yep,  I miss watching the
sunrises and listening to the waves as they
crash ashore.  Yep,  those days are surely
missed.  We just now took some selfies of
us to share and also use for other things.
According to my weather it looks as if we
might get a little bit of snow Wednesday
and Thursday,  but it’s really a guessing
game.  My weather program also shows
a couple of inches of snow for Saturday,
but again it’s just a forecast/guess and it’s
not set in stone.  Yep,  the weather has a
mind of its own.  Hopefully it chooses to
snow quite a bit to make it look a bit more
Christmassy.  I ordered us a backup system
called an EF Ecoflow River 288wh Portable
Power Station.  It should help us out when
we lose our power from time to time due to
storms and what not.  We have been lucky
and never been without electricity for more
than 8 hours,  but on a cold night or day
it will be nice to be able to plug in a little
heater to keep us warm as well as run a
few things such as computers.  Most times
when we’ve lost our power we just went
to bed and covered up good LOL or put
on clothes and coats to stay warm.  We
know how to survive.  Judy just drove to
town to pick a few things from Walmart.
I needed to finish this,  so I stayed home.
My sister’s birthday was the 6th and I did
her a little poetry picture.  I’ll share the
poem with you along with all of the other
poems.  I will sure be glad when the new
passenger side door handle comes in for
our car so that the guy can get it installed 🙂
It’s a bit of a pain for Judy always having
to reach over to open my door.  It can be
opened from inside but not outside.  It’ll
be fixed soon hopefully.  He’s waiting for
it to be delivered and hopefully he can do
it fairly quick being we will have sit there
and wait.  Oh well,  it’ll get done.  I think
I hear Rocky barking saying he needs to
go out.  I’ll be right back LOL.  I’m back.
Benny needed to go out too.  Now I’ll have
to listen for them to bark saying they are
done and want to come back in.  Aren’t
we exciting LOL.  We might watch some
game shows tonight if we can’t find any
other things to watch that we like.  I just
heard the boys saying they’re ready come
back in.  Ok,  so they’re back in where it’s
warm.  God is still taking care of us as He
has done since the beginning.  We are so
very thankful for all that He does for us.
He has sent many angels to watch over us
as well as allowed many kindly spirits to
guide us.  Thank You God for all of the
things You do for us and others.  AMEN.
Now I do believe it’s time for me to be
reading back over 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 that place of my recollection that I
always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I found a title just a few lines back
that I may not of used yet and now after
checking I see that I am correct hehehe.
So here goes

The Beginning

We might forget
what’s passed us by
the pains and troubles
that we wondered why.
Yet it’s those times
that made us stronger
helping us to weather
storms a bit longer.
From the beginning
we surely won’t know
the paths we’d cross
to get where we go.
Timeless thresholds
become living journeys
scenes we remember
that ended on gurneys.
We might even find
a window or door
that in the beginning
we sought to explore.
Within that pathway
we might see an ending
found from the time
of the beginning.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even a bit my rambling.
Judy made it back home.  She picked us
up some pizza from Pizza Hut, YUMMY.
There’s not much else to tell you other
that what I tell ya every week and that is
I wrote a few more poems and haiku.  11
poems this week being that the first poem
is my sister’s birthday poem and 2 of the
other poems are Christmas poems.  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 to begin my search for
that silly hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a truly blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Okey dokey,  now where can that
ornery off thing be trying to hide this time?
Hmm,  looking all around at all the recent
hiding spots that were never really good 🙂
Nope,  not behind my pills LOL.  LOL I see
ya trying to hide underneath my face masks.
I know I have a lot,  but I like to be safe.
Anyways,  I doubt you have to worry about
getting sick LOL.  You’re just a silly switch.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Sister of Mine

We found the time
in younger years
to have some fun
and find some tears.
Years have passed
and left in place
those memories
of us face to face.
We grew distant
as we moved away
dear sister of mine
I love now today.
We’re not so near,
but love knows true
it can travel on
even if not in view.
I still love you
and hope you find
a magical birthday
dear sister of mine.

Distant Train

Thoughts may be
just but a sign
as a distant train
a change of mind.
Paths we choose
might just roll on
as a distant train
of a timeless song.
Sung in harmony
with a cloudy sky
 as a distant train
of hello goodbye.
The tracks become
a path for time
as a distant train
of a one of a kind.
Join the vision
of heart filled days
as a distant train
that time displays.
Look for the hope
in moments ahead
as a distant train
of a worded thread.
Found in a book
that times attain
life’s full of stories
as a distant train.

Look in the Leaves

We might discover
some scenic dreams
found in the leaves
of moments scenes.
Garnished in colors
as a timeless rose
ones may uncover
the choices we chose.
Look in the leaves
and discover a day
one that of colors
of an awesome array.
Find a perspective
that is of a smile
within the leaves
moments compile.
Prayer is an anchor
to help you along
and we are the leaves
so heavenly strong
Given of the strength
that God interweaves
so find the blessings
look in the leaves.

Winter’s Arrays

Time is of artwork
as winter resides
giving us paintings
that living applies.
Seasons upon us
might be as dreams
of a winter’s arrays
and magical scenes.
Glistening snow
in a sunshiny day
becomes a picture’s
wondrous display.
Trees all covered
with snow of white
helping to create
a so scenic sight.
So many might see
the patterns inlaid
in a winter of white
that time has made.
Ice crystals form
becoming displays
seen as the artwork
of winter’s arrays.

Turn of A Page

A living library
holds many pages
some of summer
of different stages.
Yet some may be
as scenes of white
the pages of ages
as day unto night.
Summer is hidden
beneath the snow
as a turn of a page
that times bestow.
Creating passages
to a distant place
that time entwines
with a winter face.
Winter then forms
a snow filled heart
as a turn of a page
and a work of art.
As a book of life
opens up its eyes
it then unleashes
some wintry skies.
The minutes pass
becoming a stage
within the minutes
as a turn of a page.

Christmas Smiles

Snow that billows
becomes a romance
a scene and a dream
of wintertime’s dance.
Stood then amidst
the snow with a gaze
one may be smiling
about Christmas days.
Within the backdrop
a time may transform
into that of a joyful
sight Christmas morn.
It might be a memory
of a day or two ago,
yet still be seen stood
in Christmas snow.
Compiled as dreamers
remember that day
as a living reflection
of a wonderful way.
Time can be an echo
of joy that compiles
if we will remember
the Christmas smiles.

Looked Upon

A day remembered
might be the one
to help you to find
a seasonal sun.
A time and a place
reflecting a phase
now looked upon
as so distant days.
A puppy’s vision
might be a dream
or after the rain
in a certain scene.
A puddle of water
reflecting a sight
that’s looked upon
in a day’s sunlight.
It might be a time
remembered well
seeming as a story
love had to tell.
Beginning as life
that has moved on
this is remembered
found looked upon.

Country Minds

Times reflections
might be found
within moments
sight and sound.
Minds of youth
that times inlaid
become echoes
hearts can wade.
Just like a river
of old to new
a moment’s style
may live in you.
A magical time
that you recall
a country mind
a time so tall.
It might of been
a passing phase
yet now it seems
the best of days.
A youthful place
wondrous times
may now live on
in country minds.

Eve of Day

With winter’s phase
comes snow of white
that’s joined along
with a day and night.
Moments may linger
within that of time
as the eve of day
lives on in the mind.
It might be joined
with a scenic view
maybe with mallards
doing what they do.
They might bestow
their heart’s desires
to wait and see what
wintertime acquires.
Playing in a pond
that’s not frozen yet
they splash and swim
getting cold and wet.
It might be a dream
you wish to view
maybe in a picture
with a wintery hue.
You might even see
some clouds of gray
formed in a moment
as the eve of day.

Window of White

When remembering
times and places
a window of white
might display faces.
Seen as snowflakes
on winter’s ground
echoes of people
may be all around.
They might exist
in a wintery breeze
or heard as a sound
of rustling leaves.
Found as a dream
that time holds true
a window of white
an awesome view.
It may seem as if
Christmas is near
with songs of joy
that you so endear.
So many aromas
drift in the air
of Christmastime
none can compare.
Bringing memories
alive from the past
a window of white
in a shadowy cast.
It’s never forgotten
this wondrous sight
seeming so timeless
a window of white.

Sky of Paint

The art of nature
creates designs
as living colors
within our minds
They find a home
a resting place
a sky of paint
with just a taste.
Forming a style
of its very own
the sky up above
has many a tone.
Colors of blue
and gray within
with God’s hands
a breath of wind.
Breezes above
as breathes of air
paint up the sky
with certain flair.
It might at times
seem a bit faint,
but still His work
a sky of paint.

Haiku
for Dec 11,  2021

With our now and thens
many minutes might conjoin
looking as the same.

With a field of dreams
there may be many nightmares
hidden deep within.

The friends of our past
may not have the same beliefs
that you thought they did.

Looking back on time
you might discover yourself
in another light.

Living for the now
can be filled full of regret,
because it was wrong.

Pointing your fingers
at others that do their thing
might reflect on you.

Universal change
often comes within our thoughts
and how we view it.

Ups and downs in life
create many learning paths
that help us to grow.

Many tomorrows
are only within our dreams,
for we are dreamers.

Thinking too deeply
can land you in a mineshaft
filled with illusions.

Having a sweet tooth
and letting it rule your life
can lead to problems.

Escaping a hole
might cause to find another
if you’re not careful.

Within blades of grass
there may be a load of weeds
acting as flowers.

Winter creates thoughts
that many perceive as snow,
but some see as green.

Changing perception
will not change what that is true,
for it stays the same.

Searching for a star
in the midst of a night sky
you might see the moon.

Praying for others
can help you to find some peace
not thinking of you.

Paving way for time
needs to know what is involved
in the passage there.

Windows of our minds
might be on what others have
and not how they are.

A gleeful exchange
with ones that we’re trading with,
might show some regret.

Many trials in life
are only the passages
leading to lessons.

Open up your eyes
and see what truly exist,
then find what needs changed.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a weird passed week.  Our car door
on the passenger side has messed up and now
we can only open it from the inside.  The same
thing happened to the drivers side door a few
years ago and it cost near or more than 700
dollars to fix it,  so we know what we’re giving
ourselves for Christmas LOL, car repair being
I’ve still gotta get the front brakes done and I
am fairly sure that will cost pert near the same
as the door.  Oh well,  Life goes on.  If it were
not for things like that,  we might think we had
died and gone to Heaven hehehe.  So, what else
is going on around this place?  Well,  Benny’s
been hobbling along limping on his left paw.
Judy did a little hair cutting on him yesterday
and found that his claws had gotten curled and
were jabbing his paw,  so she clipped them.  He
is getting around great now.  Judy to the rescue.
She did all that while I wrote my haiku for this
week.  I think she’s in the bedroom now giving
Rocky a haircut.  Though he is a bit more shall
I say difficult LOL.  I expect her to call me any
time now needing my help to hold him,  but we
shall see.  It’s 24 F degrees right now at 6 PM.
It’s supposed to get down to 12 F degrees by
Monday morning.  Nearing the time to start
letting the hot water dribble to keep it from
freezing 🙂  Yep,   as long as there is a small
dribble of hot water it prevents the water from
freezing,  being hot water will be the first to
freeze due to temperature change.  Yes I know
it doesn’t seem right,  but trust me I have seen
it happen.  Anyways,  as far as picture taking,
I did none this passed week,  due to it getting
dark so early and us not getting out and about
until after 4 PM which by then it’s getting dark.
This week we have to get out earlier to go and
get an estimate on the car door repair and pay
our bills.  So,  I might get a few pictures then 🙂
This time though I might just put some winters
of past in the stationery or use an old stationery
for this week 🙂  It’s supposed to snow a little
tomorrow then rain a bit,  so I hope the roads
aren’t too bad,  otherwise we might have to
wait till Tuesday when it has passed over us.
We do need to pay our electric bill and our
rent.  Oh well,  It’ll get done!  Hmm,  Rocky
must be letting Judy cut his hair without too
much of a fuss.  She hasn’t called me to help
her yet.  I just went in to check and she said
she took a break.  She said it’s going to take a
few efforts to get Rocky all done.  I had kind
of thought that might happen.  LOL Judy just
now came in here and said she let Rocky out
and now he doesn’t want to come back in.  I
said when he gets too cold,  we’ll hear him as
he barks saying OK,  I give hehehe.  He hates
having his hair cut,  but after it’s done he’s
always happy and feeling better.  Both of the
boys hair grows fast,  but I think Rocky’s
grows the fastest and they do not shed.  They
are both Hypoallergenic,  but it means that
we have to cut their hair often or as often
as we are able.  We will often switch hit on
the boys taking turns and sometimes do them
both at the same time with her on one and
me on the other,  but she knew I needed to
get this written so she did the honors.  Isn’t
she sweet :).  I went a little bit ago to have
Rocky come in and he wasn’t gonna hehehe,
but then I said,  ya wanna treat and he came
flying though that doggy door LOL.  I then
opened the computer room door where Judy
was and said I had to bribe him to come in
as he came running up to her waiting for a
treat hehehe.  She said I told him we were
taking a break,  but I said I do not believe
he knew what you meant hehehe,  but he
most assuredly knows what a treat is LOL.
So now both of the boys are lying in the
floor in-between Judy and I.  I turned on
the radiator heater to warm up the room
a little bit.  Yep,  we’re all just huddling in
here as it’s the warmest room in the house.
God is still watching over us as are many
angels and friendly spirits.  We are so very
thankful for Your love and guidance that
You give often without our knowledge and
we know You will never give up on us Lord.
Thank You for never changing or wavering
in Your ways.  Please keep Your hands over
us as well as our family and friends.  AMEN.
I believe it’s now time to be reading back
over 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 seem always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  Well it seems that
I may have stumbled upon a fairly decent
title just a few lines back and now after
checking I see that I have not used it yet,
so used it shall be.  Here goes…

Never Give Up

Look for the life,
look for the ways
to better your time
within future days.
Don’t let sadness
to win over you,
because the times
may start anew.
What once was sad
may now be good
as life changes in
our neighborhood.
Stop with the hole
that you now dig,
hold your head up
and smile real big.
Answers are there
to move you along
within a heartbeat
sung as a song.
Look up to Heaven
and find God’s cup
to drink His love
and never give up.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even a bit of my rambling hehehe.
I’ve decided to use one of last years stationery
for this week.  It’s of near the same time of the
year,  but just a year back in time LOL.  Many
of you might of never seen it and others might
not even know it, if I hadn’t of told you hehehe.
So,  enjoy.  I think I have told you all that there
is to tell other than what I tell you every week
and that is,  I’ve written some more poems and
haiku.  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 🙂
With that said,  I do believe it’s time for me to
begin my search for that silly hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you all a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now,  where can that ornery off switch
be trying to hide this time?  LOL I didn’t even
have to look long,  for when I looked over at
my camera I saw it trying to take a selfie LOL.
Ya gotta turn it on first and then be in front not
behind the camera you silly thing hehehehehe.
Why take a selfie anyhow.  You look just like
most of the other off switches.  Deal with it 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Sweet Memories

Time has a way
of creating a place
seeming as echoes
of someone’s face.
Moments magnify
time’s perception
as sweet memories
a scene’s reflection.
It may seem alive
this wonderful view
memories of then
that seem as anew.
The time may show
a discarded phase
that only lives on
in pictured arrays
The sweetness finds
a tug at the heart
memorized times
a true work of art.
There may be times
shadows and trees
filled with faces of
sweet memories.

Seems a Mirage

So many things
remembered so well
may seem an illusion
with stories to tell.
Mindful mirages
of deepest thoughts
create and elate us
in times far across.
A light so bright
might form a design
that seems a mirage
of a distant time.
It might truly be
a lighthouse in day
not shining bright
a wondrous array.
It might await
a night’s montage,
but now’s a moment
that seems a mirage.

Sunbeams Shine

Gazing at a passage
that trees have outlined
I see bright sunbeams
that form in my mind.
They become glimmers
of heartbeats of gold
found as a wonderland
for eyes to behold.
Seeing living magic
as it unleashes views
within the sunbeams
that moments infuse.
Scented that of nature
as a breath to breathe
the sunbeams shine on
all the distant trees.
Becoming reflections
of a heartbeat’s dream
time creates passages
as sunbeam scenes.
Let them to become
as a moment to dine
filling your heart with
a sunbeams shine.

Mirror Images

What’s seen today
might only be time
and not a moment
you need to find.
Yet many minutes
will surely portray
the mirror images
of yet another day.
Reflections desires
of a time or place
become the echoes
of God’s embrace.
The love He gives
is reflected sight
shining upon us
as heavenly light.
Places encountered
with magical glows
as mirror images
of highs and lows.
Blessings of time
that came unto be
as gifts from God
to you and to me.
Seasons lifetimes
become pure gold
as mirror images
of young unto old.

Dreaming a Dream

Many things seen
may only be sights
scenes such as time
in days and nights.
Maybe of a pasture
with cattle grazing
dreaming a dream
that is so amazing.
Amidst a pathway
where seasons flow
dreams may come
and put on a show.
Allow the moments
to surely compile
a magical dream
to give you a smile.
Open your heart
and let in a scene
found as perfection
dreaming a dream.

Life Has Begun

Wants of a moment
scents of the sea
create the highlights
of time’s history.
An ocean’s emotion
is echoes of waves
heard as a blessing
of fun filled days.
Stood upon a beach
watching a sunrise
becomes a memoir
with joyful eyes.
It’s a heavenly time
that opens a door
allowing reflections
to live forevermore.
Scenes come to life
as a morning fire
with the sun rising
higher and higher.
Light becomes seen
as a morning sun
blessings revealing
what life has begun.

Morning’s Song

Words of the ocean
may flow in the breeze
songs of destinations
sung with such ease.
The morning awakens
as the ocean sings true
songs of the memories
that one day were new.
Sounds of the crashing
waves billows roar
 as a morning’s song
that oh so many adore.
Scenes become golden
as sights and sounds
when morning awakens
memoirs to be found.
Written in the sands
of a timeless adventure
a bright morning’s sun
is with a scenic allure.
It might be a dream
that’s never come true,
but a time you recall
that lives within you.
Look for the sunshine
and try to sing along
no matter the place
in a morning’s song.

Rails of Destiny

Fuel of emotion
creates a path
that of a journey
maybe too fast.
We are the rails
that time is upon
with momentum
dusk unto dawn.
Time comes alive
in many details
often as scenes
our life exhales.
A breath of life
in a scenic array
becomes the rails
so many portray.
Within thoughts
our lives survive
in the memories
we keep alive.
Unloading scenes
onto time’s door
giving a pathway
a time to explore.
Dust might settle
upon a memory
giving hope for
rails of destiny.

Scenic Divine

A ground of white
with snowy flavors
becomes as gold
a moment savors.
The scenes of time
that come in view
might have a place
to live within you.
Heart felt pictures
of our memories
live on so scenic
as wishful seas.
A glimpse of life
becomes as a glow
so scenic divine
as white as snow.
Heaven’s beauty
snowflakes become
as a sight of light
of Jesus God’s son.
Love as heartbeats
becoming a glance
a time and place
of a wintery dance.
Found in a dream
a moment in time
a place so sweet
that’s scenic divine.

Walking in Peace

Breathing a breath
of a passing phase
brings back times
of distant days.
Leaving footprints
within living sand
you may find God
holding your hand.
Walking in storms
of now and then
peace can become
as a gentle wind.
Just like a breeze
of an ocean array
walking in peace
can brighten a day.
Heavenly spirits
will come to you
applying blessings
to start then anew.
Leave the worry
and seek a release
in God’s blessings
walking in peace.

Haiku
for Dec 4,  2021

Time is a number
that magnifies the moments
giving them essence.

Losing arguments
can be a very good thing
giving you lessons.

Now is a turnstile
with pathways to encounter
that are good and bad.

A trial by fire
might burn up chances to learn
so take care your stride.

Leaning into time
you might find that it buckles
and leaves you to fall.

Moments come crashing
as the waves that come ashore
leaving sediment.

Within our travels
we might discover lifestyles
resembling our own.

Looking to the sky
you can often see the stars
as they speak to you

The lines on a face
may tell of someone’s sadness
or of their laughter.

No belief in ghost
does not make them go away,
for yet they are fact.

Loaning a heartbeat
to ones that are with sadness
can help theirs to shine.

Shimmering waters
in a river of today
might have some ripples.

Traveling aspects
as many with delusions
might one day find truth.

Life is like bubbles
that many seek with their greed
and sometimes are popped.

Many opinions
are but only ones egos
seeking to prove wrong.

Starlight of nighttime
holds dreams to be realized
and hope to live on.

Tomorrow is found
when today is exhausted
leaving memories.

Fields of illusions
can become reality
and ruin our life.

Many of our minds
will never ever connect
due to loose wires.

Youth is a vision
that we lose as years pass by
if we allow it.

Within a heartbreak
holds chances for a new dream
to be awakened.

Leaning too loosely
over the steep cliffs of time
you might fall over.
