Let Your Focus


Hello my friends

Well another week has come and gone
bringing summer into view.  Today has
been one of our hottest.  The high for
today is supposed to be 92 F and right
now it’s 89 F.  Although after today it’s
back to the 60’s and 70’s for a while 🙂
Yep,  the weather up here is more to my
likings compared to Texas 🙂  It doesn’t
look like it will be reaching to 90 degree
mark.  Right now it’s 88 F at 4:40 PM 🙂
Yep,  I don’t miss the triple digit weather
that I remember oh so well when I lived
in Texas LOL.  Though I do get tired
of snow after a 4 or 5 months of it in
wintertime LOL,  but for the most part
I love it being it creates many picture
taking moments.  Also Benny loves the
snow and Rocky kind of likes it too 🙂
Watching those boys bouncing around
in the snow is a sight to see.  I will often
go out and play with them in the snow,
tossing snowballs for them to chase LOL.
Yep,  I should of been born up here :).
The weather more suits me.  So,  next
topic.  Well,  Judy has been painting
a lot more pictures.  She’s done quite
a few abstract.  Right now she’s been
busy working on another children’s book
titled The Adventures Of Benny and Milo.
I’m sure the next book will be including
Rocky.  Judy and I are quite the team.
She paints and I write poetry, often using
her paintings 🙂  Right now I have our
portable AC running in here.  We won’t
need it long.  By 8 PM it’s should be in
the 70’s then the 60’s by 10 PM.  LOL
tomorrow’s high is supposed to be 68 F.
Next topic.  It looks like our landlord
is having all of the mobile homes fixed
up around here.  I’ll be glad when they
get started on ours.  Our neighbors have
BIG dogs,  but they seem to love our
little boys.  Although Benny is the only
one that wants to play with them.  Rocky
is shy and doesn’t like to be around them.
He might work through it,  but if not then
that’s OK too.  It’s not like it’s the end of
the world LOL.  Little Rocky is needing
a haircut bad,  but we tried and it was
just too much for us.  We called a week
or so ago to get him and Benny set up
with an appointment with the groomer.
Unfortunately it’s not scheduled until
the 29th of this month.  Hopefully she
has a cancellation and can get them in
earlier.  She’s very reasonable priced 🙂
Then we can trim it,  off and on through
the summer and then let their hair grow
back for winter to keep them warm when
they go out to potty or to play.  We’ve
got a bunch of sweaters and raincoats
for them,  but they don’t do that great
of a job LOL.  Benny is always trying
to yank Rocky’s sweater off of him 🙂
Not intentionally,  but in play time LOL.
They love to romp and play and they’re
often heard running throughout the house
playing chase.  Yes,  they do tend to get
on our nerves from time to time hehehe,
but for the most part,  we love it.  They
are our boys 🙂  We thank God for these
boys every day.  LOL Ok maybe not on
the days that they are more ornery than
usual,  but most of the time hehehehe.
So often we each we will forget the good
times and only remember the bad times.
Let your focus to remember the bad times
as lessons and the good times as blessings.
Of course they are both blessings,  but
it is often hard to count the bad times as
blessings.  None the less,  they are.  Now
I believe 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.  So it’s away I go,  to that
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  Hmm,
it looks like I may have found a decent
title just a few lines back and now after
checking I see that it has not been used
yet.  So,  it’s away we go…….

Let Your Focus

Wanting minutes
might complain
about the moments
falling rain.
Yet the rain clouds
times display
might be needed
another day.
Let your focus
not just see
trials of pain
in your history.
Look for blessings
that came around
giving views for
sight and sound.
Let your focus
be more clear
seeing what that
is so dear.
Life and heartbeats
brings to view
the light of day
God gave to you.
Let your focus
to now be seen
as God’s blessings
clear blue stream.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem.
Also I hope you enjoyed all my rambling.
I do tend to ramble don’t I hehehehehehe!
Both of the boys are in here lying in the
floor right between Judy and I.  Rocky is
lying on my chair legs.  I’m always afraid
I’ll roll over him LOL.  I did by accident
the other day,  but he wasn’t hurt.  I think
I just scared him 🙂  Maybe pinched his
ear.  But he’s gotta learn that daddy can’t
always look back to see if he’s there LOL.
My neck hurts too bad.  He’s learning.
There’s not much else to yammer about 🙂
It looks like it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you almost every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poetry and haiku.
Yeppers,  10 more poems with an added
LOL drum roll please drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrm
12.  LOL I know,  that’s a lot of poems.
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 believe it’s time once again
for me to begin my search for that off
switch that is so bad at hiding,  but not
before I wish you an awesome weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Okie dokie,  where is
that confounded off switch trying to hide
this week?  LOL I use the word hide very
loosely hehehe.  Hmmmm,  what is that
I see behind my software bag?  Could it
possibly be a monster?  LOL nope it’s
that silly off switch poking his head up
to see if I can see him.  Yeppers I see ya.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Alternate Universe

Within our world
lives many things
moments recorded
and alternate scenes.
Time’s but a second
that lives in our view
scenes as heartbeats
timeless so true.
An alternate universe
might show so clear
the sights and sounds
of our yesteryear.
Yet but a moment
of our scenery
might have been done
in ones history.
Then in the making
with moments adverse
there might be life in
an alternate universe.

A Plowed Field

With sun so bright
and clouds above
a field is seen
a farmers love.
Rows so straight
as soil awaits
the seasons time
it so elates.
A plowed field
is alive in view
amidst the days
of each anew.
The sun so bright
gives of the need
sunlight bright
for every seed.
Then the clouds
will give their yield
a summer’s day
in a plowed field.

Cookout Of Summer

Seasoned with life
with a touch of style
a cookout of summer
will make you smile.
Time in the evening
and smell of barbecue
a cookout of summer
is the best thing to do.
Cooking up burgers
and other things to eat
a cookout of summer
is a real fine treat.
Smelling the charcoal
as it wafts in the air
brings forth the season
with a barbecue flair.
A cookout of summer
is a time I perceive
a momentous journey
for passion to weave.
A time as an echo
of seasons own smile
a cookout of summer
a wonderful while.

Two Dogs Stroll

Paths in springtime
lives embrace,
two dogs stroll
and often race.
They most always
are together
strolling running
seasons weather.
Brotherly love
of four pawed lives
two dogs stroll
under sunny skies.
They go searching
high and low
finding places
they can stroll.
Seeking pathways
left and right
two dogs stroll
with their delight.

A Cloudy Scene

When troubles come
and problems grow
a cloudy scene
is sure to show.
The view of then,
might not be clear
a cloudy scene
you see and hear.
Look for peaceful
within the clouds
and find blessings
times arouse.
A cloudy scene
might be a place,
a time for prayerful
and God’s grace.
Look for hillsides
within your view
of a cloudy scene
in a sky of blue.

Walk Of Life

Our own pathways
might be laid
by some others
that they made.
The walk of life
is a story told
times remembered
young to old.
Take a journey
on your own
a walk of life
a seed you’ve sewn.
Let the lessons
fall in place
as your footsteps
you embrace.
Use the lessons
others learned
or you’ll find ones
you have earned.
The walk of life
is time to yield
found within
your journeys field.

Rest A While

When your life is
not at best
you might need to
have some rest.
Find a place
or time to seek
and rest a while
when you are weak.
Let the minutes
find your gain
as you walk with
times attain.
Rest a while
as life goes on
and let sometimes
to move along.
Then when rested
find your place
in the footsteps
daily race.
Yet when withered
times compile
take a breather
rest a while.

Autumn Dreams

Those memories
of colored leaves
are what my mind
right now perceives.
The seasons show
that comes alive
becomes as colors
low and high.
With every sight
the leaves display
my autumn dreams
come out to play.
Found as journeys
far and wide
a seasons style
an awesome ride.
With the colors
red to gold
my autumn dreams
are stories told.
The leaves become
as special scenes
the flavors of
my autumn dreams.

Rabbit’s House

A garden that’s filled
with carrots and more
will then become
as a rabbit’s store.
Free for the taking
if he isn’t seen
a home in the garden
is a rabbits cuisine.
His home is really near
as a wonderful view
the rabbit’s house
with carrots to chew.
He tends to the garden
as he then will browse
living out the days
in a rabbit’s house.

Portrait Of Love

Our boys remain
our daily joy
as they play
with each dog toy.
They run around
and smile away
seasons sun
each doggy day.
A portrait of love
we do embrace
as these two
will run and race.
They’re our boys
a gift from above
that’s now esteemed
a portrait of love.

Life Is

Scenes we see
with colorful hues
life is within
those daily views.
A flower to bloom
of yellow to gaze
life is a moment
found in our days.
Maybe a journey
of words in a book
life is the pages
timeless to look.
Points of perception
become such to see
as life is a stage
to be what will be.
A yellow flower
can give you a smile
as life is a moment
heartbeats compile.

Summer’s Sight

Passing scenes
a roads display
finds a sight
a summer’s day.
A summer’s sight
that time reveals
is on a drive
with rolling wheels.
Yellow flowers
show their view
a summer’s sight
from old to new.
Clouds all gather
finding phrase
building stories
summer’s days.
Life’s a doorway
swinging fast
showing seasons
moving past.
As were driving
down the road
summer’s sight
is Heaven’s load.

Whispering Silently

Galaxy matrix
a sight in the stars
finds many planets
that seem like ours.
Sounds as echoes
are slight as can be
planets all gather
and whisper to me.
Speaking of volumes
a scientist view
found telescopic
with our planet blue.
Saturn’s own rings
are timeless around
whirling and twirling
without not a sound.
All of the planets
become such a sight
whispering silently
deep in the night.

Just A View

A simple scene
of days gone by
displays a frame
a cloudy sky.
Maybe a barn
with cows within
a simple time
that did begin.
It’s just a view
of passing days
spoken with life
in wondrous ways.
A country mile
of timeless roads
becomes a time
that life bestows.
It’s but a scene
a time come true
that has become
but just a view.

Canvas Of Snow

Textured as pictures
that minutes remind,
time is a canvas
that many will find.
Often prismatic
as icicles hang
a wintertime scene
is not to refrain.
Look for the seconds
that canvas details
and see the moments
as it then exhales.
White snow of winter
begins its parade
a momentous dream
that Heaven has laid.
Through the mirror
of yesterdays scene,
you might remember
a December dream.
Remember the times
you saw all the glow
when you were a child
in a canvas of snow.

Stranger Worlds

Life is perception
what we realize
stars and planets
within our eyes.
Stranger worlds
that we now know
the scenic signs
our minds bestow.
The starry skies
of nights we see
are really just
our history.
Stranger worlds
we’ve realized
an age of life
that God devised.
Life of dreams
that time unfurls
is found within
the stranger worlds.

Billowy White

Sometimes a scene
is the darkest to see,
a time we have found,
a time then to be.
Yet through darkness
is billowy white,
the hopes and dreams
awaiting our sight.
Our skies might hold
abundance of rain,
the times we’ve seen
to drive us insane.
Yet as but a moment
this too shall pass,
to lose the darkness
in shadows we cast.
Giving our pathways
a much better plan,
life is a journey
we do hand in hand.
Time is a blessing
with Heaven’s delight
seen through darkness
to billowy white.

Washed Ashore

Lost in waters
found afloat
we might find
a sinking boat.
Rudders busted
and no oars
floating near
some rocky shores.
Life then beckons
for a change
time to seek
and rearrange.
Make a search
to find a plan
a better life
to understand.
Seek for God
through futures door
and don’t be
just washed ashore.

The Fishing’s Done

As life moves on
and seasons shine
ones head out
to seek a sign.
A fishing place
of timeless hue
as they sail
to sights anew.
The motor roaring
sounds of life
pushing through
just like a knife.
Cutting waters
to the place
their rods and reels
they do embrace.
But with evenings
setting sun
life’s ashore,
the fishing’s done.

Statue Of Fall

Leaves of life
give their display
down to Earth
from day to day.
Colors changing
leaving style
a statue standing
times compile.
Life’s a moment
gathered true
autumn leaves
within the view.
There’s a statue
stood to see
changing seasons
given free.
This is pictured
autumns call
stood to show
statue of fall.

Like A Butterfly

Life is like
a butterfly
a scene to see
of Earth and sky.
Life becomes
a memory
a smell to smell
and sight to see.
Time is painted
colorful hues
that become
our daily views.
Though we often
look away
and never see
the great display.
Find the views
a summer sky
the beauty like
a butterfly.

Evening Speaks

Pleasurable scenery,
life on a stage
displays the minutes
the passing of age.
Seeming as shadows
our timeless becomes
words of a doorway
the bright evening sun.
Memories exploding
as blessings of time
become our photos
of an evening design.
As evening speaks
it gives many words
a blue sky about it
that its time infers.
It might remind of
a time frame within
living and breathing
as life once again.
An old barn standing
might  have a few leaks
but it’s still important
as evening speaks.

for Jun 10,  2017

Life is like a rose
as it blooms and then it dies
to become much more.

Seasons of sunsets
display their very own view
of the end of day.

Need is a moment
that fills many perspectives
what want really is.

Length of emotions
is the vision that ones see
and their importance.

Looking passed today
could find you in confusion
for what you don’t know.

Meaningful chatter
might be discerned as useless
if ones don’t listen.

Counting the minutes
will only make them longer,
so enjoy the time.

A class act person
can often be a liar
hiding what that’s true.

Countless are the stars
as they twinkle up above
giving many dreams.

Stood in a puddle
there remains chance for a splash
with too much movement.

Lost in a rain cloud
some lightning might strike you hard,
but it too shall pass.

Visions of springtime
are often misconceptions
of reality.

The leaves of autumn
become as painters of life
that entwine colors.

Disowned relations
can become clearly perceived
that you should own up.

Truth is illusion
when the truth is not complete
filled with deception.

Within a river
flows many different views
that are well hidden.

The best of the best
is also with many flaws,
for life’s not flawless.

The length of a road
does not give its importance
for it’s how it’s viewed.

A breath of morning
displays a chance for new life
that we can find peace.

Life is importance
filled with many views to see
and some tossed away.

Birds of summertime
seek for shade within the trees
to sing many songs.

Without a heartbeat
our flesh would be without life,
but spirits live on.
