Family, Friends And Places


Hello my friends

Well, another week has passed as we’ve entered
into the month of June.  The weather up here has
been fairly nice.   Today’s high is supposed to be
71 F and right now at 4 PM it’s 70 F.  There’s a
100% chance of rain tonight.  Judy’s going to set
her plants outside to hopefully be revived.  It looks
like it’s supposed to rain all week long.  I do love
the cooler temperatures up here.  I miss my home
state Texas,  but I don’t miss the heat.  I wish we
were able to travel to Texas at least once or twice
every year to visit family and friends and of course
drive to our favorite place,  Port Aransas Texas
and take our walks in the waves.  We’ve got tons
of pictures and videos that we took on our many
trips down there when we lived in Greenville TX,
but we would love to take some more.  Yep,  that’s
what I miss,  family, friends and places.  I had to
shut our window a minute ago.  Our neighbors
are having a cookout and the smoke was coming
in our window.  Although I stuck the vent to our
portable air conditioner in the window and now it’s
blowing the fumes away 🙂  Earlier today I had to
get out my new keyboard for my PC,  because my
other was getting contrary.  many of the letters and
numbers would not type when I hit the keys along
with many of the letters and numbers being worn
off making me having to type by memory hehehe.
I’ll wear these off I’m sure LOL.  I do type a lot 🙂
Judy and I have been sick for most of the week,
but I don’t think it’s the flu,  being that neither of
us has had a fever.  Judy is doing a lot better now,
but I’m still coughing my insides out.  I do have
those allergies from Hell ya know hehehe!  Yep,
my allergies are seasonal,  spring unto winter and
winter unto spring hehehe.  There’s never a day
gone by that I’m not sneezing with a running nose
or as is coughing my insides out.  Although I’m
hoping that the coughing calms down a bit.  I have
asthma and that doesn’t help either 🙂  Right now
it seems my coughing has subsided a little bit thank
God.  I would love to be able to get a little bit of
sleep sometime in the near future hehehe.  Most
people don’t realize that I’m only able to get a
an hour’s worth of sleep a night,  due to all of my
health issues LOL.  I do more catnapping than
anything 🙂  OK dognapping,  but that sounds like
an offense LOL.  The neighbors are still out there
cooking with an old fashioned fire pit.  They’re
chopping wood for kindling to keep the fire going.
Judy and I took our car Friday and had the oil
changed and it inspected,  so it’s good to go for
another year.  This coming Saturday,  Judy and
her sister Trudy are taking the car down south
of us to Massachusetts for their cousins wedding
and Judy will be back Sunday night.  So it will
be just me and the boys hanging out together as
we often do when Judy’s gone.  They’ll head out
Saturday morning.  So it will be me the lonesome
dove flapping my wings amidst the four legged
boys.  I’ll probably spend the day writing poetry
or something LOL.  If it’s not raining,  I might
even take the boys out for a field trip,  but as of
now there is a 30 to 40% chance of rain for next
weekend 🙂   That can always change ya know 🙂
I can hear our neighbors using a chainsaw now.
It’s a bit noisy.  LOL kids.  Their pants are down
below their butts.  Yep,  it seems we’ve got some
young neighbors.  Not much on the conversational
part either.  I’m old enough to be their grandpa 😉
As long as they behave and don’t make too much
racket,  I have no problem with them.  LOL I do
sound like an old person don’t I!  I’ve turned into
my dad hehehe.   Calvin must of worked out a
deal with them that he would reduce their rent
if they would keep the place mowed,  being they
have been mowing our yard and the field in front
of us.  Now if they would just weedeat a little bit
that would be great LOL.  Though if I am able
this week I might get our battery operated weed
eater out and cut the ones around our house,  but
only if I’m feeling better than I do now.  I have
noticed that since I closed the window and turned
on the AC that my coughing has calmed down.
Those Dandelions will tear me up every time they
pop up their little yellow heads and especially when
they go into their white seed formations.  Of course
if it’s not them,  it’s something else hehehe.  That’s
my life LOL.  Oh well,  enough with the whining
and onto another topic.  Here’s a little humor for
ya.  Last year,  Judy and I decided to switch our
telephone landline provider from Fair Point to
Pioneer and Fair Point sent us a bill for about 52
cents,  but to pay our bill on line Judy could only
send them a dollar and so now EVERY MONTH
we get a letter from them saying they owe us 48
cents LOL.  They could save the money on postage
and just send us a check for 48 cents,  but NO.
Nope they spend a whole bunch more sending us
the envelope with stamp and papers inside to tell
us that they owe us 48 cents LOL.  So I guess you
can see why we switched huh hehehe.  Fair Point
is stupid aside from Pioneer being a lot cheaper 🙂
It’s a crazy world hehehe.  There are days that I
find myself wondering how some of these people
breathe being their thinking processes have no
sense of arrangement LOL.  It’s just a bunch of
thumbtacks in a mayonnaise jar.  So I reckon I’ve
gone and done a ton of rambling and now it’s time
for me to be looking 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 place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  Though I believe I found a fairly decent
title just a few lines from the beginning that might
work.  Now to see if it will work or I just end up
with a bunch jumbled perspectives LOL.  Here goes.

Family, Friends And Places

Through time and patience
friends are found
in places we’ve been to
then there around.
Family, friends and places
so timelessly seen
become as our heartfelt
moments of dream.
Minutes might dissipate
leaving you dry
asking all the questions
who, where and why.
An episode remembered
might surely live agin
family, friends and places
as time enters in.
Like connecting the dots
on a paper of white
family, friends and places
again might unite.

There ya go!  I hope you liked the poem.  I know,
it’s not one of my better poems,  but what do you
expect hehehe.  I ain’t perfect.  Nope,  far from it.
Did my rambling bore ya to sleep?  I hope I put in
enough levity to keep you awake hehehe.  There’s
not much else to report about from up this ways 🙂
Wait a minute,  did I say there was nothing to tell?
I beg to differ with myself 🙂  We went to Walmart
and bought me a bike Friday.  It’s a red 7 speed
Schwinn with 26 inch wheels.  I got it on clearance
for 50 dollars.  Now Judy and I can go riding.  We
bought her pink bike also with 26 inch wheels last
month.  Though hers is more old style with pedal
brakes instead of hand brakes.  She didn’t want
one with gears.  So as soon as we get a little bit
better at riding being neither of us has ridden a
bike in decades hehehe,  we’ll get the dog trailer
out and start bringing them along with us.  The
dog trailer holds 2 dogs and attaches to the back
of a bicycle.  I might end up being the one pulling
them,  being I can gear down LOL.  I also have
a special prayer request for my sister.  She’s still
going through cancer treatments.  Send her your
prayers and strength please.  Thank you so much.
Now I believe 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.  Yeppers,  I wrote
10 more poems and big surprise,  no extras or
Christmas poems this week hehehe.  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 reckon it’s time for me to start
searching for that cantankerous 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.
OK,  you ornery whippersnapper,  where are ya
hiding this week?  I hope you tried a bit harder
to find a good hiding spot.  NOPE,  there ya are
plain as day hanging from the curtain watching
the kids playing with fire LOL.  I guess ya forgot
to hide huh.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

A Scenic Wave

A glaze of grass
on rolling hills
a scenic wave
most surely spills.
The stage is set
to become found
a scenic wave
with sight and sound.
The winds will blow
in their own way
while creating
a brand new day.
A scenic wave
our eyes might see
as but a part
of history.
The changes made
from day to day
might just be
a scenic wave.

A Breath Of Air

True life moments will unfold
as so many stories told.
Some as pictures,  some as sound
a breath of air is spread around.
Morning’s whisper gives a gaze
of a moment or a phase.
Timeless shadows gleaming true
come to life in thereunto.
Scenes remembered,  times recalled
a breath of air is then enthralled.
As a memoir,  journals written
some might be as true love bitten.
A breath of air within the day
will help you find a better way.
The love of God each day and night
is strength to help us do what’s right.
A simple pause to think agin,
a breath of air will help begin.
Life’s conclusions timeless seen
might make nightmares from a dream.
So through pathways then and there
take some time for a breathe of air.

Second’s Glance

Time is ticking
moving on
as the seconds
move along.
Second’s glance
might just be
as regretful
Those distant days
we remember
are now as
a burning ember.
A second’s glance
might seem more
as a moments
swinging door.
Timeless fashions
song and dance
are as moments
second’s glance.

Behaviors of many
as the moon comes aglow
is that of a cycle
where crazy thoughts grow.
Moonstruck insanity
is feared and believed
to be of a werewolf
timeless achieved.
Yet my conclusions
tell me so true
that moonstruck emotions
are just but a view.
Factual existence,
I have never known
moonstruck delusions
that many bemoan.
Yet I’m not an expert,
but I’ll tell you now,
moonstruck emotions
I’ve not seen endow.

A Rose Of Deception

A thorn through the heart
that seemed as a rose
can tear you apart
yes I do suppose.
A rose of deception
can become your friend,
a wrongful connection
that has a bitter end.
Sometimes the beauty
of which that you see
is just a mere cutie
with a slight mystery.
A rose of deception
might grow as a weed
showing connections
you think that you need.
Don’t let the lifestyle
of a rose of a lie
to diminish your smile
as they pass on by.
Look for the beauty
that’s deeper than skin
not just a cutie
that might just be sin.

Passing Clouds

A sky of blue
with slight of gray
comes as clouds
to form a day.
Passions clouds
of formations
can become
the sky’s equations.
Painted pictures
times record
a cloudlike ship
to climb aboard.
Those fluffy sights
up in the sky
display their scenes
so very high.
Passing clouds
of thereunto
display scenes
in the sky of blue.

A Stroke Of Luck

Footsteps made
we walked on through
might of been
not good to do.
A stroke of luck
might be your sign
to help you out
with peace to find.
Sometimes lucky
isn’t so true,
for what seems luck,
might not be for you.
God gives moments
beyond our sight
what seems wrong
that might be right.
A stroke of luck
could be your way
of getting by
from day to day.

A Living Puzzle

Life might seem
to be in pieces
hectic moments
less releases.
A living puzzle
times bestowed
with some pieces
heavy load.
Portions dithered
seeming wrong
puzzle pieces
don’t belong.
A living puzzle
of your life
might need pieces
ending strife.
So find moments
that connect
to your puzzles
times effect.
Yet don’t be just
patterned by
your past puzzle
till you die.
A formulation
of your time
can create a
new design
A living puzzle
found displayed
of life’s journey
better made.

A field of yellow
and some green,
becomes as my
favorite dream
As a moment
time’s instilled,
I see beauty
in the field.
far and wide
every time
I look outside.
They get mowed,
but grow right back,
do in fact.
Minutes pass
in yellow fields,
timeless yields.
As a story
written words,
with some birds.
Seasons changing
will inlay
them all gone
with winters way.
Yet until then
I will find
on my mind.

When Time Has Ceased

While creation continues
the end is still coming,
time frames encountered
like a horse quickly running.
We cannot see the end,
for we can only see now
with the questions we have
with when and then how.
Yesterdays thinking
is becoming something new
while the door to tomorrow
is coming into view.
So many think they’re right
as the truth will unfold
what they thought was right,
might become something old.
For when time has ceased
and our Earthly bodies die
we’ll find all the answers
of who, where, what and why.

Tomorrows thinking
gets in the way of today,
like future baggage.

Pointless perception
lives within greedy people,
for they always want.

Dandelion seeds
can become a multitude
with time on its side.

Flavors of dewdrops
are as mornings own sunshine
that drips from the leaves.

Life is a journey
that many will become bored,
while others find peace.

Troubles from our past
can become troubles of now
if we do not learn.

The fabric of time
cane be torn by a moment
and go unnoticed

Looking the wrong way
might find you being struck down
by your ignorance.

The rain of a day
can overwhelm a moment
if you’re unprepared.

A shadows lifestyle
is as much as its owner,
for it’s not alive.

Within a flower
holds the essence of true life
as it is blossomed.

A page worth reading
is that of a good person
that helps others smile.

When last place meets first
the connection is then changed,
for they are the same.

Living proof of God
is the existence of us
and every heartbeat.

Yesterdays flowers
can become today’s splendor
if they are cared for.

Art work of the sky
might begin with some eagles
or clouds floating by.

A few coins of life
might buy you a few good times,
but leave misery.

Heartbeats in rhythm
are as special emotions
connected by God.

Large egos bring sadness,
for truth brings about justice
to point out the facts.

Many that are wealthy
are not contented with life
and so they are sad.

Flourishing rainbows
come arching down from Heaven
as a sign of peace.

Before tomorrow
today needs taken care of
so that you’re ready.
