Maybe As A Ghost


Hello my friends

Well,  it looks like May has finally gotten here
and springtime has even finally showed its face.
Yep,  right now it’s 63 F degrees and tonight
is supposed to get down to 38 F which isn’t too
bad.  I can even see a few buds coming to life
on the trees.  I’m sure in time the leaves will be
blowing in the wind rustling with their music
of spring and summer as they dance to their
own drummer.  This passed week has been a
fairly nice one.  We’ve taken the boys on a few
field trips.  They love playing out in field and
I think most of all they love doing it with us 🙂
Watching their little smiling faces running in
our direction brings joy to our hearts.  When
we got home from town the other day,  our
neighbors Chihuahua named Freddy came over
wanting to play.  Benny obliged him hehehe.
Freddy’s owner/mom came to get him,  but
Benny and Freddy were running all over the
place just having a blast.  Rocky just stood
and watched hehehe.  I think he was ready
to go in the house.  Rocky is a bit like Milo
was.  He prefers to be inside other than to
go for a ride in the car or take a run in the
field with us.  Yep,  when Rocky is ready
to come back inside,  he does exactly the
same as Milo did.  He barks once and then
waits and barks again and waits and then,
well you see the pattern.  Yeppers,  we’ve
got some silly boys.  We can often hear our
neighbors Chihuahua or Freddy if you will,
barking saying I wanna play with Benny 🙂
Rocky’s not that crazy about him and pays
little attention to Freddy,  but Benny loves
that little boy.  He just loves making friends.
Our landlord has a big German Shepherd
and Benny sees him and goes nuts wanting
to play,  but we fear that Calvin’s German
Shepherd might confuse Benny for a chew
toy hehehe.  It might go over well,  but until
we’re brave enough to let them meet mano
a mano hehehe,  it will have to wait hehehe.
I’m sure that one day that time will arise
and hopefully Calvin’s dog wants to play
as well LOL.  He’s friendly with me,  so
who knows.  Judy has gone with her sisters
up to Eagle Lake Maine today to visit her
brother Ricky and take him some cookies
and soda waters.  Ricky’s in a nursing
home up there.  Their mom is also in the
home with him.  That works out great.
They can visit them both while they’re
up there.  Eagle Lake is about 90 miles
north of us,  so I don’t expect them back
until late.  They left from here about 10
this morning and as normal every time a
noise is heard,  Benny gets all ecstatic and
starts barking thinking mom is home LOL.
Rocky will start spinning in circle with
excitement hehehe.  LOL when Rocky
gets excited about anything,  he spins in
circles 🙂  So every time there is a noise
outside I have to go to the living room
and open up the front door to show them
that nobody is here.  That’s the only way
to make them hush and that might also
slow down my writing process a tad LOL.
My Weather Watcher’s showing that we
might get some rain tomorrow.  It says
100% chance and according to my radar
it shows some rain clouds moving in from
the southwest.  So,  tomorrow might be
a bit damp beginning around noon hehehe.
Right now it’s cloudy and looks as if it
could rain 🙂  The temperature is going
down now.  It’s 61 F now at 5:30 PM 🙂
LOL by the weather reports you might
be able to tell that there’s not much to
tell.  The boys are in the living room
keeping a look out for mom.  Benny is
barking again,  I’m sure thinking that
Judy is home.  Well,  surprise,  it’s her
this time LOL.  She said,  they had a
nice visit with her brother and mom.
Yep,  now the boys can quit looking for
Judy and stop barking at everything
they hear thinking it’s her LOL.  So
hmm,  what else is there to talk about?
Well,  we’re going to see about buying
Judy a bicycle this month and buy me
one next month so we can do a little
riding and hopefully lose some weight.
We can’t afford to buy both of them
this month,  but we can buy one of
them.  We’ve been planning on this
for over a year 🙂  We’ve already got
a carrier for 2 dogs that we bought
a year ago or so that will attach to
the back of a bicycle so we can take
them with us on our bike rides.  Yep,
this summer,  Judy and I are hoping
to lose a little weight or at least give
it a good try 😉  I’m sure we’ll enjoy
the rides and fairly sure the boys will
after they get used to their carrier.
LOL,  I can hear our little neighbor
Freddy barking.  That little guy has
got some lungs on him hehehe.  It’s
not like they live right next door to
us ya know LOL.  Nope,  they’re
quite a distance away and he’s in
their house 🙂  Of course I’m fairly
sure that they have a window opened
that allows him to be heard outside.
Benny is always looking for him
when he goes outside.  Rocky just
goes about his daily business,  unless
it involves us or something hehehe.
Anyways,  I think Judy is fixing to
head to bed for a while.  Neither
of us slept much last night or this
morning and being she had to be up
and ready for her sisters to pick her
up at 9:30 this morning,  it made
for a short nap for her,  but I never
fell asleep.  I did though take an
hour or so catnap when she left 🙂
Catnap,  meaning I nodded a little
off and on as my body would allow
me to rest and of course with all
of my encounters with the boys
wanting to lie in bed with me LOL.
Benny wasn’t the problem.  Rocky
was wanting to snuggle up close
to me and made it hard for me to
relax especially when he laid on my
legs and chest as he would change
positions hehehe.  He finally got off
of the bed and me and I was able to
get a little rest.  I love them boys,
but sometimes they drive me crazy 🙂
I think I’m gonna have to shut the
door.  Judy’s sawing logs,  if ya know
what I mean hehehe.  I had to stop
and go get me another Mountain Dew
and saw Rocky sleeping in my spot
on the bed LOL.  Benny just strolled
in here to see what I was doing and
then headed back to his lookout post
on his favorite recliner in the living
room.  When he headed out,  I shut
the door to drown out the sounds
emanating from the bedroom LOL.
It seems we had a ghostly visitor
this morning hehehe.  I have a little
flashlight that you have to screw
the head of it to turn it on and it
turned on when Judy was in here
waiting for me to bring breakfast.
She told whom ever to turn it off and
they did.  Then she asked them to
turn it on again and it came back
on.  When I came in,  she had just
told the ghost to turn it on and she
pointed at the flashlight that has
been sitting in the very same place
forever LOL and then I said hello,
thanks for the kindly hello,  now
can you turn it off,  and off it went.
We asked them again to turn it on,
but I guess they had used up all
of their energy and they could only
get it to partially come on.  Anyways,
welcome to our haunted home LOL.
For all I know,  it might of been my
dad or Pawpaw.  Both of them had
a sense of humor and I often can
feel their presence around the house.
Many times when writing,  I can feel
a hand on my shoulder.  My dad used
to always love to watch me write and
he would often put his hand on my
shoulder and stand and watch.  God
has the power to allow whatever is
the Heaven that makes ones happy
when they pass.  Just because ones
body dies,  it does not always mean
that they’re gone for good.  They might
of become angels to watch over you
and I.  Yes I am a firm believer in
the supernatural such as ghost and
spirits.  Yes some are bad,  but many
are just spirits enjoying watching us
in our day to day lives and giving a
little nudge time to time to help us
find peace.  Don’t assume that all of
the spirits are good or bad,  but don’t
put them all in the bad category either.
God sends blessings in many different
forms.  We may not see the blessings
at work,  but they are there.  Maybe
as a ghost 🙂  Now I believe that I have
gone and rambled quite enough and
it’s time for me to be looking back on
all that I’ve written to see if I can find
a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem.
So,  it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title just a few lines back 🙂
Now to see if I can formulate a few
words into a poem using it.  Here goes.

Maybe As A Ghost

Heaven finds places
with faces we’ve seen
maybe as a ghost
in our life or a dream.
Many that passed on
will maybe just be
a ghost watching over
to help you and me.
Maybe as a ghost
they can do so much more
like displaying pathways
or open a door.
So often our loved ones
might find ways so true
maybe as a ghost
to help us accrue.
Maybe as a ghost,
they can untangle
our day to day lives
as guardian angel.

There ya go.  I’m sure many of you will
not like the poem,  but maybe a few of
you will.  I always write what the spirits
give me to say.  I know,  you might think
I’m crazy,  but really and truly,  I don’t
care.  I’m me and I write what comes to
me LOL.  Crazy or not,  it’s my thoughts.
I don’t think I have anything else to tell
you other than the usual.  So I reckon it’s
time for me to be telling you what I tell
you almost every week and that is,  I
wrote some more poems and haiku 🙂
Yep,  10 more poems with 3 of them
to my loving wife 🙂  Yet,  I did get a
little carried away and wrote 4 extra
poems so that adds up to 14 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 I believe it’s time
for me to begin searching for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but surely
not before I wish you a most blessed
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
I truly glorious week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
where’s that ornery off switch hiding
this time?  Hmm,  not behind my soda
can or my aspirin bottle.  Where can
he be hiding this week?  AHA,  I see
you ya little whippersnapper.  Hiding
behind the small statue that our old
neighbors gave me would’ve worked
if you would just learn to stay still
and not be peeking to see if I can
see you.  LOL Learn to stay hidden.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+4 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

My Timeless Heart

The days and nights
of wishful ways
my timeless heart
is what displays
The things I thought
and wished for too
my timeless heart
holds dear to you.
My loving wife
of magical times
my timeless heart
shows so many rhymes
The times connections
to places seen
my timeless heart
holds dear each dream.
We’ve found the paths
to now and today
my timeless heart
is a magical way.

Beneath The Sun

On a summers day
that I’ve memorized
I can still feel it
that great day comprised.
Waves rolling inwards
onto a sandy shore
beneath the sun
where we do adore.
A few clouds blow in
and paint up the sky
as the sun keeps on shining
with us you and I.
We watched as the mornings
brought in a view
a sunrise shining
above the ocean blue.
We snapped some pictures
of our summertime fun
on an island paradise
beneath the sun.

The Trees Will Blow

The leaves on trees
will rustle around
with tunes of springtime
sight unto sound.
The trees will blow
as breezes rush by
and branches will sway
up so very high.
When night partakes
to join in the scene
the trees will blow
and create a dream.
As night moves on
and daytime arrives
the trees will blow
with all that survives.
Just like an ocean
with waves that will roll
the branches will sway
the trees that will blow.

Thick And Thin

Through our yesterdays
now brings a day
through thick and thin
a brand new way.
The passed mistakes
of yesterdays while
can help us today
to find a true smile.
Our age is just numbers
counted and stored
creating more then
to climb aboard.
Don’t let the numbers
to lose you in frame,
for they’re only numbers
to give us the gain.
Yet if we’re foolish
and fall back on time
our trublesome worries
will become a rhyme.
So don’t let the moments
to echo what’s bad.
Use the passed moments
to then become glad.
For as the years pass
and days all fly by,
our lives will get better
if we’ll give a try.
Allowing God’s blessings
to grow within you
the thick and thin days
will shine of anew.

Space And Time

While sleeping and dreaming
I found myself flying
throughout the cosmos
with time frames arriving.
Space had become Heaven
with time that occurred
with but a motion
and with but a word.
Space and time found me
near to the stars
with a galaxy matrix
that’s so unlike ours.
I saw a small spaceship
that came flying by
and I sought out to grab it,
but do not know why.
It just seemed to amaze me
with its blinking blue
and space and time entered
to clear up my view.
I saw little people
just waving at me
in this space and time moment
my dream helped me see.
They held up a sign
with some alien words
that I had envisioned
as flock of wild birds.
The sign that they held up
I then understood.
It said I am falling
into my neighborhood.
The stars became blurry
and the spaceship was gone
as my space and time venture
was welcoming dawn.
My sleep had then ended
and my dream was no more
of the space and time venture
in starlight I’d soar.

The Bird of My Heart

True love is the wings
of a feathery love
the bird of my heart
that has come from above.
She swooped as an angel
to gather my heart
as she moved deep inside me
as God’s work of art.
I saw her in moments
as words written down
this one that I love now
with eyes of deep brown.
She showed me a minute,
she showed me a time
as we joined together
our rhythm and rhyme.
So as the pages
of our book are seen
the bird of my heart
is my wonderful dream.

Leftover Time

Times that were borrowed,
times that we used,
will often become as
what all we abused.
Each with our journeys,
each with our path
often misleading
what turns aftermath.
The things found leftover
are often just weeds
planted in topsoil
what we thought as needs.
Time begins moving
with hands on a clock
showing what’s counted
and what that’s tick tock.
Now turns to hours
as days all fly by
with leftover time
and us asking why.

Rose Covered Eyes

Seeing only beauty
and not seeing true
brings an illusion
into every view.
Rose covered eyes
with a pinkish inlay
often causes problems
with day after day.
We need to see truthful,
we need to see clear
what changes we’re needing
with year after year.
Rose covered eyes
only work for a while
and then you need truthful
to frown or to smile.
Yet don’t just cry
over things going wrong.
Make the right changes
before time moves on.
Look for the beauty
with your rose covered eyes,
but don’t let it fill you
with a lifetime of lies.

Clouds Of Ages

Near the stars
in skies of blue
clouds of ages
briskly flew.
Making pictures
ones can see
clouds of ages
you and me.
Days are counted
far and wide
clouds of ages
Some as flavors
cotton candy
clouds of ages
some seem sandy.
Making oceans
beaches shore
clouds of ages
are much more.
They’re the raindrops
held intact
clouds of ages
some abstract.
Pictures seen by
our two eyes
clouds of ages
in the skies.
So as moments
give to you
clouds of ages
times to view,
look more closely
seamless stages,
find the beauty
clouds of ages.

Spring Unto Summer

Seasons pass surely
as days we recall
spring unto summer
and then unto fall.
Winter brings snowflakes
to so many places,
giving the children
their happy faces.
Then as the white snow
melts from the ground
springtime is given
its time around.
Sprouting are rosebuds
and tree leaves to grow
that were once sleeping
beneath the white snow.
Spring unto summer
brings flowers to bloom,
some found delaying
waiting for June.

The Midnight Air

A breeze blows in
and spring is here
when the nighttime
shows sincere.
The midnight air
is that of dreams
as running waters
midnight streams.
The scenes of life
come with a page
the midnight air
found center stage.
A book of time
with words of peace
the midnight air
with sweet release.
Tomorrows dreams
will have a prayer
through God above
and the midnight air.

Kin Of The Heart

Ones connected souls
are often not apparent,
for kin of the heart are
so often transparent.
Many times people are
found disconnected
from so many loved ones
that now needs corrected.
Kin of the heart are
sometimes not so clear,
as many miles might not
seem so sincere.
Yet many kindred
are not blood the same,
for they’ve been connected
through life to attain.
God gave the passageways
to now and then,
to ones not of blood,
but still found as kin.
Those of a distance
that time spreads apart
are still loved the same
as kin of the heart.

Translucent Dreams

Time just like windows
will sometimes be scenes
found as a moment
of translucent dreams.
Clear as a window
you might see through
translucent dreams
might have a clear hue.
Not seeing the clouds
that form and create,
translucent dreams
can depreciate.
Find what that’s worthy
of patience and time
losing translucent
that windows define.
Look through the windows
and see what that’s there
beyond the translucent
dreams full of air.
Seen through the windows
new life can become
not so translucent,
but a bright shining sun.

What If

Sometimes wondering
what if someday
or what if something
sometime some way
can become somewhat
what if a while
with but what if
time is a mile.
What if a persons
what if is seen
what if a monster
comes in a dream?
Scenes finding what if
can be what a way
and what if turnstile
changes each day.
Many times what if
is just but a while
down what if worry
a long what if mile.
So let not your what if
to take full control,
for what if’s not happened
to take on its toll.

With salt and pepper
we can change the taste of things,
but they’re still the same.

Less of obstructions
can be less of our lessons
of which we needed.

Dreams we remember
might become real if wanted,
be very careful.

Legions of heartaches
can become your life’s baggage
preventing true love.

Hanging on to things,
could be a growing problem
that needs to release.

Today is a gift
as a blessing from Heaven
maybe seen wrongly.

Two loving puppies
have a true undying love
that needs no reason.

The stage is ready
for your footsteps upon it,
but are you ready?

A friendless flower
will still show us its blossom,
while wanting a friend.

Countless perception
finds endless supply of thoughts,
either right or wrong.

As a mission to Mars
many flowers may have bloomed
striving for the stars.

A white cloud of time
could become a storm to see
that rains on your life.

Peace is a moment
that finds its way in our lives
when anger is ceased.

Belief in a dream
gives hope for it to come true,
but don’t hold your breath.

Circumstances seen
become so many view points
that might not be right.

Yesterdays shadows
needs to stay where they belong,
for today is here.

Painting a portrait
finds perception as the art
of all that’s within.

When looking both ways
you might miss what’s before you
and crash into life.

Decisions in life
often come as an Earthquake
that shake you apart.

Hope is from Jesus
and life is a true blessing
from Lord God above.

Portholes we look through
often show some rocky shores,
but peace can be found.

Sometimes illusions
are the views seen from wanting
what we do not need.
