Crashes Ashore


Hello my friends

It’s been a bit of a weather change for us
up this ways. Yep, it started snowing a bit
yesterday and has been snowing off and
on today. LOL Fall was a short visit LOL.
Rocky got to get his first glimpse of snow.
I took him and Benny out for a field trip in
it yesterday. of course it was only about
an inch deep at most, but it was still his
first sight of that white stuff. It seemed
that Rocky loved it. Him and Benny made
a mad dash out to the field leaving me in
my snowy tracks hehehe. Rocky would
stop ever so often to let me catch up, but
Benny wasn’t waiting for nobody hehehe.
Judy took pictures of us from inside the
house. I took a few pictures as well as
a video of them playing and running in
the snow. It will be interesting to see
how Rocky reacts to the deep stuff that
will come later on LOL. Only time will
tell. Anyways, as I told you in my last
journal, Judy and I took the boys and
headed up north of us a bit Tuesday to
find some fall scenes to take pictures of.
Of course there are a few right outside
our door and no sooner than we hit the
road we started seeing great fall colors.
Yep, we made a day of it riding around
looking for places to park the car and
get out to take pictures. I took pictures
Wednesday of our drive to town as I do
every time we head to Houlton to do a
bit of shopping or whatever and I got
quite a few nice fall pictures. So this
time my stationery will be full of fall
pictures. I’ve already uploaded a few
to my Facebook profile. This little bit
of snow that has fallen might just melt
away in a day or so, being it has not
been a steady freezing temperature for
long enough to keep it from melting,
but it’s getting there LOL. My weather
program says that it’s supposed to be
23 F degrees by tomorrow morning 🙂
So far our radiator heaters are doing
well at keeping our bedroom and PC
room warm. We’re not too concerned
about the rest of the house, being it
isn’t cold enough yet to freeze the pipes
and we spend most of our time in the
PC room on our computers when we’re
not in bed trying to get some sleep or
watch TV. One of my buddies that I
used to work with at Weatherford in
Greenville sent me a message a few
days ago saying that he might pop up
here to see me while he is on his own
picture taking drive looking for fall
foliage. I gave him our phone number
to call if he makes it up so we can go
and lead him out here or maybe give
him directions how to get out here 🙂
He called about an hour or so ago and
said he might not make it up this far
north, but he was in New Hampshire
headed for Portland Maine. So, we
shall see. It would be nice to see Curtis
and visit with my old friend. We had
a nice chat on the phone. LOL Benny
is right behind me talking to Judy and
it’s getting hard to think and write. He
has turned into quite the little talker 🙂
We’ve got a few videos of him talking
to us. He talks mostly to Judy trying
to get her to give him treats hehehehe.
Rocky is often yammering at Benny 🙂
He changes the octaves of his voice
trying to say come and play with me,
but it never comes out right hehehehe.
These boys are some little gabbers and
we love them. It looks like the sun has
made itself known as it is now partially
peeking out from behind the clouds 🙂
Oops, it’s gone again. LOL it comes
and it goes. All I can say is, winter is
knock, knock knocking on our front
door. Milo’s birthday is Oct 31 which
is Halloween. We miss him. He was a
good brother and teacher for Benny.
Benny learned quite a lot from his big
brother. Now it’s Benny’s turn to be
the teacher. LOL but it seems Rocky
is not wanting to learn. Sort of like
Benny was, but maybe he’s learning,
but just not letting on the fact hehehe.
One day this week we’ve gotta get out
and put away the dogs kiddy pool and
doghouse along with our picnic table
and chairs. Time to put them under the
tarp for next year before the water in
the pool freezes solid LOL. I just got
done fixing Judy, I and the boys some
breakfast. We’re all done eating and
now it’s back to my rambling. LOL
Judy turned up the radiator heater
when I left the room to fix breakfast,
because it was a little chilly in here,
but when I came back in to bring in
our breakfast it was a little too warm
so I had to turn the heater down a bit.
It doesn’t take much to heat this room
being that our PC monitors put out
a bit of heat as well. So, this is one
of the reasons we hang out in here so
much especially during wintertime 🙂
God has kept His Mighty hands over
us protecting us. I feel blessed to be
able to see and enjoy the scenery that
comes into frame as the seasons all
take shape. Me being a photographer
helps me to look even closer to see the
smallest of things that so many never
see, because they’re too busy to look.
Often the obvious beauty is not the
best, for something tinier can out do
the beauty of the obvious. Look closer
at the world and find the beauty that’s
not all that large. A tiny snowflake
or a leaf floating in the wind. Watch
the ripples of a pond and see how they
might seem alive at times. An ocean
wave can become a mesmerizing sight
as it crashes ashore. Don’t let the big
things to prevent you from seeing the
smallest of beauty. God has given us
so very much to find peace within.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be
taking my little trip back through all
that I’ve written here to see if I can
find a good word or phrase that I can
use for the title of 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 just a
few lines back, but now to see if I can
write a poem that makes any sense
using it hehehe. Here goes…..

Crashes Ashore

Scenes of an ocean
come into play
with waves becoming
a magical way.
The sounds they make
with each new tide
are dreams of scenes
an ocean wide.
They give the essence
of God’s Own world
that crashes ashore
with times unfurled.
Bringing in peaceful
to fill up the pain
that crashes ashore
with times to attain.
The oceans depth
becomes but a wave
that crashes ashore
on distant days.
Each scenes connected
to that of much more
the waves are creating
with crashes ashore.

So, how was that hehehe. As you might
have guessed, I’m reminiscing our times
down at Port Aransas Texas as well as
the year that I lived down there. Judy
and I always loved the sights and sounds
of the waves crashing ashore. We took
many pictures and videos each time we
went down there and we both miss that
place terribly. Maybe one day we will
return to stroll in the waves and watch
them crash ashore again. I haven’t much
else to tell you at least that I can recall
other than our landlord finally got the
old mobile home moved and the newer
one put in place. LOL it’s not new by
a long shot, but it’s in a little better
condition than the old one was hehehe.
Anyways, that’s about all I have to
tell you, of course aside from what I
tell you almost every week and that is,
I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep, I wrote 10 poems, but this time
I seem to have gotten caught in a little
whirlwind of thoughts and wrote 2 extra.
3 of the poems are sort of 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. So, now I believe it’s time
for me to be searching for that not
so illusive off switch, but not before
I wish you a most wonderful weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a truly
blessings filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now,
where are ya hiding this time you
little whippersnapper? I know, you
think you didn’t have time to find a
good hiding spot because I wrote
my last journal but only 4 days ago,
but if you recall, you didn’t even try
to hide. So, now as I search my desk
it seems that I see something moving
from behind my orange juice glass 🙂
For Heavens sake, there are plenty
of good hiding spots, but you choose
a glass of orange juice of which I’m
drinking LOL. You can be so dumb
at times. Try harder next week, OK.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+2 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Beneath A Word

A simple thought,
a simple word
might just be
a bit misheard.
Beneath a word
of something said
might not be
what’s in ones head.
Hidden meanings
not so true
beneath a word
might be askew.
Simple patterns
phrases found
might be heard
a wrongful sound.
Beneath a word
might be confused
with what all
you’ve always used.

Times Forgotten

Long ago
from where and when
times forgotten
did begin.
Things so precious,
yet now found
times forgotten
sight and sound.
Then some photos
come in view
times forgotten
show so true.
Often with
a lack of color
times forgotten
are no other.
Echoes seeming
like a stage
times forgotten
withered page.
But the moments
comes alive
times forgotten
will survive.
Living in
a photograph
times forgotten
Patterned pictures
bring the joy
times forgotten
girl or boy.
Life moves forwards
leaving some
times forgotten
beating drum.
So don’t let
your life fall pray
times forgotten
better day.
Take the time
to look to see
times forgotten
A picture taken
can enhance
times forgotten
song and dance.
Childhood days
of good and rotten
might bring joy from
times forgotten.

A Sky of Praise

Beneath the sky
there is a sight
times of darkness
and of light.
A stage is set
for ones to see
a sky of praise
so wonderfully.
Each passing day
becomes a view
with mornings sun
to times anew.
A sky of praise
becomes what’s seen
often found
within a dream.
The seasons show
a time to be
a sky of praise
for you and me.
Enhanced by God
so high above
a sky of praise
is filled with love.
Even storm clouds
give a show
when they’ve left
a big rainbow.
A sky of praise
is Heaven sent
seen as many
times accent.

A Winter Smile

With Christmas music
coming soon
a winter smile
will come in tune.
The sight of snow
upon the ground
a winter smile
will then be found.
Christmas essence
till that day
comes in view
a wondrous way.
The sight of snow
so pure and white
will show scenes
of Santa’s flight.
A winter smile
with many scenes
twinkling lights
reds, blues and greens.
Songs of Jesus
and His joy
a winter smile
then does employ.
Joyful thinking
many find
a winter smile
of Christmastime.

Dreaming Of Snowflakes

The seasonal echoes
of all that I know
are found in my mind
with dreams of white snow.
Remembering passed days
of seasonal hues
with me mesmerized by
my wintertime view.
Dreaming of snowflakes
and Christmas to come
gives me the heartbeat
of Jesus The Son.
Each mornings sunrise
is found to recall
things I had dreamed of
summer to fall.
True in the springtime
my dream is still there,
but I’m enjoying
the sights everywhere.
But starting in summer
my mind comes alive
dreaming of snowflakes
a Christmastime size.

A Life Of Mysteries

Hearts of a moment
connect with a while
a life of mysteries
bringing a smile.
Discerning a heartbeat
as what that’s there
might be a mystery
maybe not fair..
A life of seasons
with mysteries true
is often mistaken
for yesterdays view.
A life of mysteries
might clearly be seen
when it’s the time
to know what it means.
Yet as a minute
an hour goes by
a life of mysteries
continues to fly.

Above And Beyond

Life as a doorway
opens and shuts
giving some blessings
and often some cuts.
God gives us passage
above and beyond
blessings to find when
our life moves on.
Searching for glimmers
of blessings unique
God’s Son Lord Jesus
will give us a peek.
Yet many pathways
our lifestyles alight,
above and beyond
is a well hidden sight.
But as we wonder
what goodness can be
above and beyond
might show sights to see.
Then with good choices
our lives can be found
above and beyond
on God’s Solid Ground.

Withered Passages

A long list of choices
of withered emotions
is often displayed as
sharks in our oceans.
Passages baggage’s
carried for miles
can become heavier
stealing our smiles.
Each thing remembered
without any peace
shows withered passages
needing release.
God is with prayerful,
we just need to pray
and let those withered
to find peace today.
Search for the lessons
that should of been learned
in withered passages
that you’ve discerned.

Windowsill Snow

The taste of winter
finds a flight
scenes of snowflakes
in my sight.
Upon my daydreams
I can find
windowsill snow
of Christmastime.
A journey of eyes
within my dreams
windowsill snow
enlightens the scenes.
The passage of time
with snowflakes of white
a taste of winter
I do so delight.
My heart is beating
in a wanting array
for windowsill snow
of that winters way.
Christmastimes scenes
then falling in place
my windowsill snow
with a happy face.

Then Is Gone

Time has passed
and then is gone
as life finds
another dawn.
Good and bad
from days ago
might just be
what need let go.
Then is gone
and now is here
time has found
another year.
Don’t let then
to hold you back
and leave you now
a bit off track.
Find the strength
to just move on
to better days,
for then is gone.

I Have Found

My life has grown
through troubles path,
I have found
as aftermath.
Lessons learned
from what I’ve done
I have found
a better sun.
Life through ages
in and out
I have found
what they’re about.
Though so rocky
were the roads,
I have found
my lessons loads.
With each day
I’m giving praise,
for I have found
the better days.

Fall Fades Away

Winter is here now
as fall fades away
bringing its snowflakes
and their great display.
Floating so brilliantly
down from the sky
fall fades away
with winters reply.
Scenes come alive
as snow billows on,
on through the day
from dusk unto dawn.
Leaves that had changed
to colors so bright
found they were seasons
faded from sight.
Many took pictures
of autumns display
to remember through winter
when fall fades away.

for Oct 16, 2015

Mornings emotions
can make or destroy your day,
for it is your choice.

The sight of a bird
will give us thoughts of springtime
found after winter.

A simple pattern
might become what’s good or bad
if it is needed.

Breathing in a breath
needs you to exhale the old
to make room for new.

Life is many things
that we might not understand,
for they are not us.

Seen through binoculars
a distant star might amaze,
though it is long gone.

Patience in others
is often very painful,
for some never learn.

Milestones of journeys
often display memories
of the days gone by.

An ocean has waves
with many stories to tell
that we can’t perceive.

Knowledge of others
does not mean that you know them,
but you know of them.

Various ideas
will come together as bombs
exploding with egos.

Love of a moment
can prevent you from changing
and finding better.

A glorified mind
might not be as smart as thought
when truth is exposed.

A hair follicle
holds a persons DNA,
not personality.

Tornadoes of life
display their destruction
often much later.

Hoping for better
needs some action on your part
to help it along.

The words on a sign
do not always speak the truth,
for they might be lies.

Tomorrow morning
needs us to release today
and look for the smiles.

Farmers harvesting
show a pattern in their styles
with what they planted.

Venturing outdoors
you will need to be prepared
for what that awaits.

Pages of our life
might display some weathering
through paths we’ve chosen.

Listening for wind
could find you staring blindly
not seeing the sights.
