Hello my friends

Spring is in full blossom are at least it is
for up here 🙂  We’ve still got  a few 30 F
nights.  Though the days have been in the
60’s lately.  This week the daytime temps
are supposed to be in 50’s and 60’s.  That
isn’t too bad.  I would rather it to stay in
50′ and 60’s rather than the 80’s and 90’s.
70 F degrees I can handle,  but not much
over it.  In other words, I myself prefer
colder climate.  It rained a bit yesterday
and it’s looking like it could rain today if
it so desired hehehe.  Judy went over to
her twin sister’s house yesterday  for a
visit and she took the boys with her,  so
I had the day to myself 🙂  I did a little
writing and then took my conga drums
out in our driveway and did a Youtube
video to upload.  Yep,  it was a nice day,
but I missed Judy and the boys.  They
came home before too late and Judy
said that Rocky was always going in
and out the front doggy door and doing
his spinning thing.  I told her that I’m
fairly sure that meant he was ready to
come home LOL.  He missed daddy 🙂
Yeppers,  he missed daddy.  He ran in
here and jumped on me and gave me
a smile and a kiss.  There’s not much
else going on around here.  Judy and
I just got done eating our brunch and
now I feel bloated hehehe.  I think I
ate too much.  I fixed us blueberry
pancakes,  one egg a piece and some
sausages.  Yep,  I guess that was her
Mothers Day feast,  but then I often
make the same aside from blueberry
pancakes.  That was due to running
out of pancake mix and having to use
some blueberry muffin mix hehehe 🙂
They came out pretty good.  Anyways,
next topic.  OH YEA,  how on Earth
could I forget this,  We received Judy’s
book in the mail last Monday.  She
ordered ones for her sisters and our
daughters as well as her brother 🙂
We also each have a book.  I love it,
but it might not be everyones cup of
tea.  It’s about space and it is R rated.
I think it’s awesome.  We’re hoping
that it sells good.  I just know that
a lot you out there will love her book.
LOL anyways,  off of the infomercial
and back to my journal hehehehehe.
Last Tuesday we bought Judy a bike
and next month we’re going to buy
mine so that we can ride together
and hopefully lose some weight and
get in a little better shape.  We’ve
got a covered doggy trailer that we
bought a few years ago but I think
I’ve already told you about that in
last weeks journal LOL.  Anyways,
Judy’s bike is pink and has the old
style pedal brakes.  It has a basket
and a cell phone holder attached to
the handlebars.  LOL my bike won’t
be that girly hehehe.  Judy rode her
bike to the car from Walmart,  but
she didn’t realize how out of shape
she was or how tired her legs were
after walking all through Walmart
shopping and when she tried to stop
she fell over.  She skinned her knee
a little,  but she’s OK.  It’ll take a
while to get her legs strengthened up.
I’m sure I’ll run into similar problems.
My old legs have been aching and
gotten weak,  but hopefully we’ll get
in better shape during the summer.
Hmm,  what else is there.  Friday
I did a little conga drum video for
a little friend of mine on Facebook.
I try do things like that from time to
time.  You know,  personalize my
videos LOL.  She’s a good kid and
I wanted to do the video to cheer
her up.  She and many of my friends
are like family.  I have a few that
call me dad even if we have never
met in person and there’s no relation
between us other than God.  Life
has a way of finding roads towards
people that you find much more than
just friends.  Friendship is a blessing
and can become family.  I thank God
for all of my family and friends even
if there are a few of my family that
are not so close to heart.  But we’re
still family none the less.  Now that
I’m done rambling or should I say
for now hehehe,  I reckon it’s time
for me to be taking my little journey
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
for today’s brand new poem.  So it’s
away I go to that place of recollection
I always like to call,  RECOLLECT
VILLE.  Hmm,  while looking back
it seems a phrase jumped out at me.
It’s just a few lines back and now it’s
time for me to see what I can do with
it.  Here goes……..Maybe nothing 🙂

Close To Heart

Our moms are more
than just someone
to give us life
a daughter or son.
They’re our mothers
to teach us well
and kiss our knees
when bikes have fell.
Close to heart
our mothers should be
each day in life
through history.
For times will come
when they are gone
an close to heart
is what lives on.
A mothers heart
that times foretold
should be with you
when you grow old.
So if you and her
are far apart
you can still keep her
close to heart.

So,  how’d I do?  LOL I know,  not that
great.  Anyways,  I just thought I should
write a Mothers Day poem and so that’s
what I did.  Rocky is sleeping in the floor
right beside me.  He loves his daddy LOL.
He loves his mom too.  It’s hard to be
in 2 places at the same time 🙂  Benny is
I’m assuming in the living room on his
favorite recliner acting as guard dog 🙂
I met our new neighbors yesterday and
it looks like they are real young.  The
oldest looks like he’s in his 20’s.  They’ve
got a dog,  not sure what kind,  but she’s
friendly.  Her name is Pebbles hehehe.
The boys have been sitting on our back
porch watching her,  but they know to
not go over there.  They had Pebbles
chained outside while they were having
a cookout.  Anyways,  they seem to be
nice kids.  They asked me what internet
we used and I told them that we used
Pioneer Broadband,  but Dish offers
internet if you want to go that way.
They said they’ll do Pioneer hehehe.
So now before I get into Rambles Ville
again I guess I need to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers 10 more poems with
1 of them being a Christmas poem.
I actually wrote 3 extra poems from
my alone time yesterday hehehe,  so
that ups the ante to 13 poems LOL.
I wrote once again 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.  So now I guess it’s time
for me to begin my search for that
not so great at hiding off switch,  but
not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or whatever is left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do to.  Now,
where is that ornery off switch at?
Where can it be hiding this time?
Hmm,  I think I spie with my 1 good
eye a lump that does not belong and
it’s moving hehehe.  Hiding under
the instructions to our new doorbell
would of worked if you could just
learn how to sit still hehehehehehe.
Gotch,  see ya click zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to Judy’s new book as at
the end of the journal along with the
others.  Enjoy 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+3 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Fanfare For
The Common Man

Beneath the rhythms
are so many words
a story,  a glory
as a flock of birds.
A fanfare for
the common man
displays journeys
to walk or stand.
It may seem simple
times record,
but the fanfare
is times accord.
Believing in rhythms
isms explained
much of our journey
is surely attained.
Times we echoed
just but a plan
we found fanfare
for the common man.

Within Without

Before and after
times will flow
within without
where all we go.
The storms will brew
and then they’ll cease
within without
a bit of peace.
The hands of time
will tick on by
within without
and seem to fly.
Our memories
of now and then
within without
will enter in.
Those timeless days
we’ve thought about
might turn into
within without.

A Fabulous Time

A wonderful magical
time that I’ve seen
is sometimes fun times
found in a dream.
A fabulous time
that my heart perceives
is a time long ago
me playing in leaves.
Those youthful truthful
moments reflections
a fabulous time
of my perceptions.
Those days had blessings
in form of a tree
and house within it
that I built for me.
Riding my bicycle
on sunny days
a fabulous time
that’s now just a haze.
Those blessed days
of timeless past
a fabulous time
that’s now shadows cast.
I look so often
within my mind
and search in depth
real hard to find
those fabulous times
to bring to light
when sadness sways
my day and night.
Those joyful moments
I search to find
that help me smile,
a fabulous time.

The Sun Will Rise

A day of sadness
will soon demise
when goodness follows
the sun will rise.
For time keeps moving
seconds counted
good and bad times
days surmounted.
The sun will rise
to another day
once in a while
a different way.
The sands of time
an hourglass shows
the days and weeks
that nobody knows.
Until the moments
come into frame
the sun will rise
and surely exclaim.
Now’s just a portion
of new days to come
the sun will rise
to moments own drum.
So as the minutes
show life in the skies
each day will change
the sun will rise.

A Crystal Haze

A starry night
of coldness gleams
a crystal haze
within my dreams.
That haze becomes
much more to see
that’s crystallized
in you and me.
A crystal haze
of God filled light
shows its magic
in the night.
Seen as Heavens
times partaken
the starlight embers
then awaken.
The starlight crystals
night portrays
life above
a crystal haze.

Pearlescent Dreams

With starlight that twinkles
in a place faraway
some pearlescent windows
have much to display.
Scenes found in dreamland
of colorful rainbows
glittering magically
as dream time bestows.
Pearlescent memories
come alive in your mind
of a colorful dream world
of a so distant time.
Then you’re on a journey
to the stars up above
a pearlescent Heaven
that’s filled full of love.
Starlight then beacons
as glittering streams
of a Milky Way lifetime
in pearlescent dreams.

Thoughts Of Life

Thinking what’s before you
is a doorway of need
that’s often mistaken
as wants to succeed.
Our daily thoughts of life
are often not the best,
for sometimes they become
those times we detest.
So think not of wanna,
but what’s needed true
thoughts of a journey
that’s better for you.
Don’t let pure greediness
to take full control,
for if you allow it
you’ll pay a heavy toll.
Life filled with thinking
will often find strife
so take time for resting
in your thoughts of life

Reflections Of Night

Starry nights glitter
as a Heavenly display
might just be reflections
of another wondrous way.
Nights own portrayal
is a magical scene
that many only see when
found within a dream.
The stars up above us
and that one of daytime
display such a pathway
as a romantic rhyme.
All that is above us
that we may not see
might be another lifetime
for you and for me.
For as we each fathom
the nights of starlight
the days could be but only
reflections of night.

Happy Face

Joyful are the minutes
that seconds acquire
when a happy face comes
to put out the fire.
A smile from another
can become dominoes
one after another
wherever life goes.
A happy face smiling
can help ones so sad,
for the smile can infect them
and make them be glad.
A smile is a blessing
that we need to share
with patience and love
to ones everywhere.
Don’t let a frowny face
to always be found.
Find you a happy face
and lose that old frown.

Those Christmas Lights

Throughout the season
spring unto fall
those Christmas lights are
what I still recall.
My mind clearly sees them
those lights from afar
twinkling as we pass them
driving in our car.
The essence of Christmastime
comes with a glow
often with Christmas lights
and Christmas snow.
Then you can hear as
so many will sing
the joy of Our Lord
in a manger scene.
Blessings uncountable
come into frame
hopeful from Jesus Christ
His Holy Name.
Christmas bestows upon
us many sights
found just a twinkling
those Christmas lights.

A Day Alone

Weekends passing
time moves slow
a day alone is
to and fro.
Now meets shadows
glimpse of time
written in
a day of rhyme.
A day alone
where time stands still
minutes rolling
like a wheel.
A time for thinking
thoughts to gain,
time frames counted
to attain.
A day alone
with a sky of blue
gives my thinking
thoughts to do.
So as minutes
gather speed
a day alone
gives all I need.
Time for me then
to be found
writing about
each sight and sound..
For as sunshine
gleams so bright
a day alone
gives words to write.

Shadows Of The Past

Echoes of emotions
that incur into today
are glimpses of our lives
and how we got this way.
Those shadows of the past
of which you now perceive
can become many lessons
or an echo then to weave.
You can try and recreate them,
those times of long ago,
but the shadows of the past
won’t be the same to show.
Troubles will grow greater
as the shadows supersede
and yesterday might become
a time you do not need.
For now leads to the future
as yesterday is dust
with shadows of the past then
as just our wants and lust.
So don’t let baggage find you
with resentfulness contrast,
for yesterday is only
the shadows of the past.

The Lightless Stage

The dark of night
bestows its own
timeless moments
sightless zone.
Scenes become as
shadows gaze
with some fearful
moments ways.
The lightless stage
of darkened scenes
might reveal
nightmares and dreams.
The minutes grow
as fear is found,
the lightless stage
no sight,  but sound.
It’s within us
worries grow
from those moments
we don’t know.
A candle gleaming
will shine through
the lightless stage
of thereunto.

for May 6,  2016

Time is a number
often counted with worry
and then expanded.

Life of a flower
is sometimes not visible,
for growth is within.

Seasons of worry
will acquire a field of weeds
to hide the green grass.

Journeys through our lives
often have a few potholes
to give us lessons.

Beneath starry skies
holds an imagination
found inside us all.

A dream for a time
could represent your sadness
for where you are now.

Trials of a fire
are often burdens we need
to make us more strong.

A heartbeats rhythm
can be seen in someone’s actions
and how that they march.

Left ways meets right ways
and then choices need chosen
to decide which path.

Standing in one place
and not moving in your life
will make you stagnate.

A footprint that’s seen
might be made by your own foot
and show your return.

Finding a moment
that has not been acquired
will sometimes be bad.

The leaves on the trees
show us their own perception
of seasonal days.

When ones get sleepy
their mind might see illusions
of past that occurs.

Looking through windows
you might see yourself gazing
back as reflections.

Without a second
a minute could not prosper
and time would stand still.

Sunlight by morning
becomes a guide each day
that leads to nighttime.

Looking for trouble
will maybe find you much more
that you can deal with.

A belief in ghosts
does not mean that you’re crazy,
it means you’re alive.

Someone’s disaster
might be replaced with blessings
to make us stronger.

Beneath a liar
holds an empty shell of life
growing to explode.

Answers to questions
often give us much sadness,
because they’re not good.
