Footprints In Time


Hello my friends

It’s a nice day today with a temperature
of 77 F degrees and a high of 77 F.  Not
too bad for summertime if ya ask me 🙂
Nope,  not bad at all.  Still,  the humidity
is about to do me in.  Yes,  once again,
to those that do not know LOL,  I am
very hot natured and I can’t handle too
much heat.  My old body is better off in
the cold LOL.  The boys are outside now.
It’s such a pretty day.  They need to be
out there and enjoying it.  I’ll join them
when I finish writing 🙂  Judy and I went
bike riding yesterday in the field and
the boys ran right along with us.  There
are things about summertime such as
that which I will miss,  but sweating my
life away is not one of them hehehehe.
It looks like the next few days will be
in the upper 70’s and later a few days
in the lower 80’s.  I feel sorry for yall
down south of us,  but then,  you might
feel sorry for us during the wintertime 🙂
The only thing I hate about wintertime
is the latter part of it where the snow
starts melting and turning into slush and
then refreezes making a not so wondrous
ice skating rink LOL.  The boys love
the snow,  although I think Benny loves
it a bit more LOL.  Rocky is more like
Milo was and he prefers to be indoors
most of the time,  but Benny is literally
a snow dog.  The only time he is ready
to come inside is when he can’t handle
the cold anymore,  but then after he has
come inside and warmed up a bit,  he’s
ready for another go LOL.  They both
will play and bounce around together
in the snow.  The day that Rocky saw
snow for the first time we were not
sure how he would react and that day
we found out.  Him and Benny made a
mad dash out to the field through the
snow.  Rocky was having the time of
his life and that day we found it hard
to get him back to the house hehehe.
I joined them out in the field and took
some pictures and videos of them and
the snow.  Yeppers,  Benny and Rocky
have become the best of friends.  They
play chase and wrestle around.  Every
once in a while they’ll also do as true
brothers and get into a scuffle over a
treat or a toy, LOL and we will have to
break it up.  They’re getting better,
but yes,  they do act like brothers <3
of course of different breeds hehehe.
I had to turn on our air conditioner
a little while ago.  Our PC’s put out
a lot of heat and this room was getting
stifling.  I let the boys back inside a
little bit ago also.  They’re both lying
in the floor now enjoying the AC LOL.
This passed week has been a fairly
nice one.  It’s rained a few days off
and on,  but that was a welcomed sight.
Judy and I might do some more bike
riding tomorrow.  With the ground
not so soggy it makes it easier to ride.
Until we get to where we feel that we
can handle a longer ride,  I think we
will keep our rides in the field and in
our driveway where the boys can also
run along with us.  Then, when we feel
we can go further,  we might get out
the doggy trailer and bring them with
us.  I’m guessing that the trailer will
be pulled by me LOL.  It attaches to
the back of a bike.  Anyways,  that’s
future desires 🙂  For the present days
we will deal with each day as it comes.
The day is now coming to an end as I
watch the sky darkening up gradually
as the minutes pass.  I had to stop my
writing a moment ago due to a few
conflicts within this room,  but they
are resolved 🙂  It just took me a bit
to get back into my writing mode
again.   Problems will come and go,
but peace can still be found 🙂  Yep 🙂
especially with two rowdy little boys
that love to create a ruckus and one
that gets kicks out of pulling my tissues
out of my box and eating them LOL.
Now here’s a laugh,  the other day,
Judy and I saw something white on
Rocky’s pooper/buttocks/hiney/back
side/posterior, etc, etc, etc LOL and it
turned out to be tissues.  He’s learned
how to wipe his own butt by eating my
tissues and pooping them hehehe.  Now
I have my tissue box taped to the wall
on my side of the bed with duct tape,
but that didn’t stop him LOL,  he just
climbed over on my night stand and
proceeded to pull them out.  Soooo,
I have begun just tucking the tissues
in the box so he can’t grab them.  So
far it has worked HaHaHa.  He’s also
gotten a hold of Judy’s tissues,  but
he seems to have been focused more
on mine for some dumb reason that
I cannot think of hehehe.  Though for
the moment,  it looks like I may have
solved that problem.  I was running
out of tissues LOL.  Our home has
literally gone to the dogs 🙂  It’s OK,
it keeps it interesting.  We can get
bored,  but it’s not easy hehehehehe.
It seems that every day has a brand
new mystery to be uncovered or pulled
from the tissue box.  God has blessed
us with love in many different ways.
I enjoy watching the clouds in the
sky as they paint their pictures of the
many things that I can imagine and
the seasons show their own type of
decor with their footprints in time.
Yes,  each season has its own place
in the days of our lives.  I guess it’s
time for me to hush and begin my
quest back through all that I have
written here to see if I can find me a
good word or phrase that will work 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.  It looks
like I may have found a title just a
few lines back 🙂  Now to see if I can
do anything with it 🙂  Here goes…

Footprints In Time

Seen as a footstep
that’s making its way
there are some footprints
with words which to say.
Words of a journal
that ears cannot hear,
found as a portion
of our yesteryear.
Each day is a page
of a book with words
sometimes recalled as
a large flock of birds.
Minutes will leave us
if time is ignored,
yet they will find us
sometimes as deplored.
So,  make your journey
with blessings to find
found in the thresholds
of footprints in time.

There ya go.  I did what I could with that
title 🙂  It seems no matter what title I use,
God guides me to say what I need to say.
The sun is setting,  but there’s still a little
light out there.  8.01 PM is sunset and it’s
7:58 PM 🙂  The temperature has dropped
a bit.  Now it’s 67 F degrees.  It feels good.
Judy went to lie down for a bit.  She has
been working long and hard on her new
book.  She finally got it done and I think
it’s great.  I read it yesterday to help her
to look for typo’s and such and I loved
it.  We found a couple of typo’s,  but they
were small.  Anyways,  it’s published.
It’s titled,  “Just Get Up And Dance” 🙂
So,  what else is there to tell you that I
have not already?  Oh yea,  as far as
I know,  my sister is doing well.  My
other friends are still needing prayer.
A few fighting cancer also.  Cancer is
a cruel disease and it’s not prejudice
about whose lives it will infect and
destroy.  Be strong my friends,  for
God is always with you.  You might
not be aware of it,  but He is.  Now,
I believe it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you almost every week 🙂
and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers 10 more poems,
but no Christmas poems this week,
but I did write another poem earlier
today which ups the count to 11 poems.
Also I once again wrote 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 I reckon it’s
time for me to be searching for that
ornery off switch,  but not before I
wish you a most wonderful weekend,
or whatever is left of it and a truly
blessings filled week,  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
where could that silly off switch be
hiding this week?  Hmm,  searching,
LOL I see ya.  Thought you found
a good hiding spot this time didn’t ya?
Well,  it might of been aside from one
small little problem,  I noticed my
paper moving up and down as you
breathed hehehe.  Maybe next week.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

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 🙂

P.S. again hehehe
I bought me a selfie stick.

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+1 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Those Days Are Gone

The past is an echo
in now days attire,
the clothing ones wear
or sought to acquire.
Yet so many people
will look back and say
those days are gone,
now look at today.
They point out the problems
instead of the good
while adding to sadness
with what they wish would.
Those days are gone
the times we recall
and now is the journey
we walk,  maybe fall.
Truth is the pathway
that lies cannot hide
while now might seem gruesome
with hell bent applied.
Take a step back now
and see what you’re doing,
those days are gone,
it’s now that you’re screwing.
Look for the blessings
and fuel them with love,
then those days long gone
let them fly like a dove.
Let God The Father
to help you move on,
for then is just baggage
for those days are gone.

Cloudy Scenes

Clouds above me
skies of blue
paintings painted
wondrous hue.
Pictures forming
in the sky
become doorways
that can fly.
Windows form as
worlds to see
cloudy scenes
God given free.
Scenes like magic
form and change,
a puff of wind
then rearrange.
Cloudy scenes
of moments gain
often beauty
formed as rain.
Then a rainbow
finds its place
cloudy scenes
a smiling face.

Comes With Peace

Violent actions
only fuel
that of minions
found a fool.
Times found bitter
turning points
leave so many
aching joints.
Heartless people
do not see
what they’ve done
to history.
Yet with actions
love can prove
we can find a
better groove.
Not judgmental
of ones skin
or what place
is found their kin.
Faces painted
human beings
love and peace
should be agreeing.
Time can venture
war to cease
for it’s what that
comes with peace.

Beyond My View

A starry night
with moonlight bright
displays a porthole
far from sight.
A scene of wonder
found here under
stars that twinkle
scenes asunder.
Beyond my view
of thereunto
a place might be
for you and me.
A distant place
a smiling face
with ones like us
to soon embrace.
A starry night
might shed some light
beyond my view
it may,  it might.

Without Some Thought

When stepping on out
and not looking first
you might just become
one needing a hearse.
Without some thought
not making a plan
you might just become
what troubles expand.
Living without thinking
and not seeing true
without some thought
can destroy you.
Don’t be a dummy
and head out in life
without some thought
and fill full of strife.
Of course some moments
will also show true
without some thought
much better for you.
Yet many doorways
displaying in time
without some thought
can be bad to find.
So allow some time
to think clearly through
what that is better
for you then to do.
Most of the time
yet surely not always
without some thought
can turn into grays.

A Step In Time

A shimmer,  a shadow
as stories unfold
displays the ventures
from young unto old.
A step in time
with our memories
might be as a field
or the deep blue seas.
Mountainous moments
that fall into place
a step in time
becomes an embrace.
A window to look through,
a voyage you have been
a step in time
might remember when.
Seen as a glimmer
the things we have done
a step in time
shows us oh so young.
Traipsing in meadows
or creeks to and fro
a step in time
is a time that we know.
Memories remembered
that now are sublime
come from the moments
a step in time.

The Last Beating Heart

With passion of turnstiles
the last beating heart
becomes a memoir
with new days to start.
Journeys foreboding
can leave ones insane
with only a heartbeat
of hell to attain.
The minutes that flourish
need us you and me,
the last beating heart
to help love succeed.
Let’s not let its fire
to cease with its flame,
for the last beating heart
needs help to exclaim.
Voices must ring
before love falls apart
and there is no rhythm
the last beating heart.

A Season’s Breeze

Spring brings flowers
and breezes blowing
a potion for blessings
time is bestowing.
Then with the changes
summer arrives
breezes blowing
helping survive.
Without the breezes
summer would be
a hot time remembered
for you and for me.
Then is found autumn,
fall as it’s said
leaves changing colors
because they are dead.
Becoming an essence
of beauty divine,
fall finds snow flakes
sought winter time.
Then as the snow falls
some pictures display
a season’s breeze
as snowflakes play.
A season’s breeze
is that of a style,
springtime to winter
filled with a smile.

Visions Of Life

Some see life as
just but a rhythm
that might be dead
that’s found deep within them.
The visions of life
are many times wrong
as ones uncover
another days dawn.
Life is a pathway
often with troubles
lessons to learn
from all of our struggles.
Visions of life are
sometimes as dreams
things to remember
as rippling streams.
Yet then so often
our visions will be
life as a whirlwind
with so much to see.
Our visions of life
will change day to day
as we continue
our daily display.

Like a stargazer
I stare at the sky
seeking a spaceship
near to fly by.
Watching the seconds
as hours will pass,
a stargazers sight
with an alien class.
Seeing the starlight
twinkle and shine,
I a stargazer
just look for a sign.
Seeking for something
that I do not know
a space craft flying,
a UFO.
Yes I a stargazer
look to the stars
also found searching
for Venus and Mars.
Time is no moment,
for minutes evade
a retired old man
with life to degrade.
A stargazer searches
to find a great view
in the night sky above
and day sky of blue.

A Mere Moment

A time when you look
and see your reflection
found within heartbeats
daily connection.
A mere moment
that finds you a smile
amidst of the journey
a dusty roads mile.
A time when you see
some shadows appear
fantastic moments
of your yesteryear.
Yes a mere moment
can brighten your day
with many memories
to lighten the gray.

Life is a page turned
that’s often noticed dog-eared
to remember times.

Displays of a heart
are often found as empty,
but be full instead.

Change is a wording
that many find confusing,
thinking life or cash.

Not moving forward
can become moving backwards
for you will not stay.

Beyond what we see
is a sight beyond our sight
that many will seek.

Nothing is something,
for it is actually time
that has not been found.

Nowhere is somewhere,
for if you say you’re nowhere,
it states you’re somewhere.

Exhibiting skies
with a few clouds passing by
becomes a picture.

Searching for others
a flower exposes life
as its own design.

A bumblebee’s life
is that of mere decisions
from day one of life.

Some autumn leaves fall
and their colors paint the wind
while they fall to Earth.

The voice of a dog
is not that it cannot speak,
but we don’t listen.

Challenges of time
are often just many fears
we should overcome.

Sidestepping people
leave many trails left and right
avoiding choices.

Scenes of the ocean
are as waves crashing ashore
becoming a dream.

Voids of creation
find many questions to ask
that have no answers.

Flavors of ice cream
change to love of emotions
filled with desire.

The length of rainbows
are immeasurable miles,
for they are but light.

Desires of life
comes as things that we’re wanting,
but yet do not need.

Various rivers
have no direction in life,
but just to wither.

A fire that burns
uses all that is needed
to keep it alive.

Sadness of a loss
is brightened by memories
when mourning has ceased.
