I Can Often


Hello my friends

It’s been a nice passed week.  We had a
great Thanksgiving.  We went to Judy’s
sister’s house and we had good food and
played games.  The weather has been on
the wintery side.  It snowed a little this
morning early,  but the ground was still
too warm for it to stick.  But we’ll get our
snow soon enough hehehe.  The days are
getting shorter.  It seems that no sooner
than it’s morning,  it’s already nighttime.
Yep,  even our solar lights are struggling
to get enough charge to shine LOL.  Judy
and her twin sister Trudy went up to Eagle
Lake to see her mom at the nursing home
the day before Thanksgiving.  They got
some nice pictures of them and their mom.
There’s not been much happening around
here lately.  Nope, it’s been rather on the
quiet side.  Even the boys have cut down
on their barking,  but they still have their
moments LOL.  Judy and I are anxiously
awaiting the first real snow.  We love to
watch it falling from the sky as it lands
softly on the ground to paint many views
to see.  Of course there are the problems
with it,  but then there’s a downfall to any
point and time.  You’ve just gotta look
for the good.  We truly love Christmas 🙂
It’s less than a month away.  I’ll be taking
pictures of the scenery and all as it comes.
In the next day or so,  I’m going to hang
our solar Christmas lights in the porch
and mount the solar batteries where they
can get sunshine or whatever they can get.
I brought our little Christmas carousel in
here and turn it on time to time.  It plays
Christmas music as the carousel turns 🙂
Yeppers,  we’re getting in the Christmas
spirit.  We can’t afford much,  but we’re
happy with what we’ve got.  It helps to
keep your wants in a realistic world LOL.
I just went and got me some hot cocoa 🙂
Now back to the journal.  Oh yea,  Judy
bought her a laptop PC.  She’s now busy
learning how to use it being it’s a touch
screen Windows 10.  Her XP PC needs a
lot of up dating and it was cheaper for
her to just buy a new one and being she
got it on Black Friday it was cheap LOL.
She went to Walmart  midnight Thursday
night with her sisters.  Me and the boys
just hung around the house,  being I had
no wish to deal with all of those people
and from what we could see when we came
home from her sister’s house Thursday,
the parking lot was already packed and
there was a long waiting line to enter at
the door.  Nope,  not for me.  I’ll do my
shopping for things that I need other than
groceries in the comfort of my home.  I
can often get good deals like that anyways.
Right now I need a keyboard with buttons
bigger than the tips of my fingers hehehe.
I had one,  but the buttons were beginning
to be unresponsive and I bought another
keyboard a while back and hooked it up
last night,  but the buttons are smaller
than the tips of my fingers and it makes me
hit 3 keys at the same time.  Even the enter
button is small which keeps me hitting the
backwards slash and the shift button along
with enter button LOL.  I can’t help it,  I
have large hands.  That be a large reason
why I do not use a cell phone along with
the fact that my eyesight is with but only
1 eye and it’s not that great LOL.  LOL
so there ya go.  I’ve already found me a
decent keyboard for 12 dollars that I have
put in my wish list for when I have money.
All in all,  God has been good to us and
provided all that we need and loved us
even when we might of seemed unlovable.
Thank You God for putting up with me
through my trialing times.  Now I believe
it’s time for me to begin my search 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 my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  Hmm,
I think I may have found a decent title
about a 3rd of the way back in all of my
rambling 🙂  So here goes,  in a effort
to use the title to bring to life a poem 🙂
Here goes nothing hehehe…

I Can Often

Through our lives
we might say
I can often
find a way.
Through the turmoil
times details
I can often
fill my sails.
Yet so often
times might seem
as a rock laden
rushing stream.
With the turnstiles
time unfolds
I can often
reach my goals.
Yet so often
looking back,
I can often
was off track.
Looking short term
and not it all,
I can often,
caused a fall.

LOL there ya go.  I wonder how many of
you will understand the poem hehehe.  if
any 🙂  Anyways,  I hope you enjoyed all of
my rambling and it didn’t just put ya to
sleep,  but then if it did put you to sleep,
I guess I helped ya get some much needed
rest hehehe.  I guess that’s all I have for
ya other than what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with an
extra 4 which ups the total to 14 and 2 of
the poems are about Christmas HoHoHo.
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 for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off switch,
but yet not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and a truly
blessings filled week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now,  where is
that off switch hiding this time?  Hmm,
looking around the room over and under
all that I see.  LOL there you are you lil
whippersnapper.  Hiding once again in
1 of the worse places to hide.  Behind my
cup of cocoa hehehe.  You do know that
I am drinking that,  don’t ya hehehehehe?
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Our Minds

Within our minds
we might foresee
a time and place
for you and me.
The place within
might not be good,
but just a thought
we misunderstood.
Maybe an ocean
of waves that roll,
our minds might be
to seek a goal.
Yet in the waters
you might fall prey
to life and times
of another day.
Then with patterns
that times attain
our minds might be
a little insane.
For as we seek
the oceans of life,
we might then also
find much strife.
So look beyond
your wanted ways
and see what’s true
that time displays.
Then seek firstly
what’s proven right
as time moves on
from day to night.

Another Dream

Another breath,
another while,
another dream,
another smile.
Another heart,
another voice,
another style,
another choice.
It grows within
as timeless views
another dream
to win or lose.
Another passion,
another place,
a picture portal’s
smiling face.
We’re the ones
creating it all,
another dream
large or small.
Distant echoes,
times details,
another dream,
will fill its sails.
Bringing sights
into our eyes,
another dream
of truth or lies.
The life we lead
can feed a stream
as a nightmare
or another dream.

Thankful For Life

Feasting on visions,
tasting the sights,
life is the moments
a second ignites.
Scenes as flowers
and a true blue day
makes me thankful
as I kneel and pray.
The scenes of time
become as details
life as a journal of
our wishing wells.
Thankful for life
is a passage to read
for all the blessings
that we really need.
Just like a doorway
that time opened to,
life begins a quest,
a wonderful view.
Losing the sadness
of passed days strife
can then make you
thankful for life.

Vision Quest

Life as a minute
can turn into days
with hours counted
in their own ways.
Then as the visions
come into view
the times become
as a certain hue.
A vision quest
beyond our sight
becomes as a scene,
summertime’s light.
Just like a story
of a magical scene,
visions come true
to fill up a dream.
For as a story
the times fall prey
to the imagination
of another display.
A timeless moment
that life has found
a vision of the past
is sight and sound.
Maybe of a deer
standing in a field
with trees nearby
as a vision to yield.
It can live inside
as moments of rest
a scene you recall
as a vision quest.

Colors Of Time

With but a painting,
an image to see
time is of colors
seen so magically.
Seen as a place
remembered so well,
the colors of time
are not ours to sell.
Life’s motion picture
is a timeless array
with colors depicted
in a magical way.
As minutes tick on
and painting is done
the colors of time
are always begun.
One might discover
a wondrous design
scenes within scenes
the colors of time.

Across the road
to another time,
I came to see
a wonderful find.
A wintery scene
came into view
and made the day
the whitest hue.
It revived me
the moment I saw
and filled me full
of wondrous awe.
I took a picture
to visit once more
that time revived
of winters door.
A Christmas essence
that came in sight
gave peace of mind
in winters light.
It brought me joy
to live and breathe
and revived my life
on Christmas eve.

Desert Moonlight

A dreamy night
that times have viewed
might have some sights
you wish to elude.
A cactus standing
in the moonlight
as time comes alive
in this desert sight.
It might become visual
this moment you found
that fear is forthcoming,
the sand on the ground.
Yet it’s just a dream
of a time and a place
that then came alive
to give you a taste.
Painted as a moment
of an artist delight,
you might have a dream
of the desert moonlight.

Enjoy The View

Allow your mind
to slip away
into a dream,
another day.
Enjoy the view
that time bestows
when it rains
or when it snows.
Allow the oceans
of the times
to fill you full
with greatest finds.
Don’t let the days
to end in hate,
enjoy the view
of time and date.
Allow the sands
of an hour glass
to give you peace
as times will pass.
Now take a look
at thereunto
and take some time
to enjoy the view.

Old And Anew

Counting days
as minutes flow
the old will leave
and new will grow.
As life is seen
it shows its face
as old and anew
and place to place.
We’ve each seen
the times we miss
that now are just
a heartbeats kiss.
Then as lifetimes
move along
the old and anew
sing a new song.
A song about time
and all we recall
the old and anew
has a tale for us all.

Country Life

Displayed driving,
time stands still
as moments passing,
a rolling wheel.
Scenes are found
as summer’s breeze,
a little pond
within the trees.
That country life,
it shines with grace,
the scenery
that times enlace.
Within the mind
that time bestows,
a country life
a moment grows.
It’s as a seed
that came in sight,
that country life
amidst daylight.
A fragrant time
that passes by,
with scenes to find,
life’s apple pie.
Those memories
of time and place
are signs of times
with a smiling face.
A time with peace
and less of strife
that I recall as
country life.

Winter’s Ways

Remembering seasons
of white fallen snow
as wheels go around
and snow banks grow,
there is such a scene
that comes to mind,
times near Christmas,
a wonderful find.
White snowy roads
with flakes falling down
as time is its journey
to land on the ground.
Winter’s ways surely
is seen as a time
painting a picture
a Christmas design.
The season of blessings
on a road snowy white
becomes as a memoir,
a time I delight.
With the essence of life
on white snowy days
the season comes alive
within winter’s ways.

Summer’s Sun

Peaceful waves
roll in and out
as scenes begin
there daily route.
An ocean lifestyle
near the shore
in summer’s sun
to then explore.
Then remembered
was a view,
of summer’s sun,
and ocean blue.
The distant time
is now a dream
of summer’s sun
a certain scene.
A time and place
that had begun,
is memories
of summer’s sun.

A Time Divine

With just a glimpse
of a distant view
a picture might
show sky of blue.
With light of day
and scenery
the passing time
might be a key.
A door of life
then opens true,
of which the key
unlocks the view.
Knocking on
the window scene
might be times
displayed cuisine.
Sight of beauty
pure as gold
that comes to life
as stories told.
A view to see
for you to climb,
a mountain scene,
a time divine.

Old Of Life

Just like a barn
that’s left behind
the old of life
is great to find.
A personal sight
that came to be
might be the life
of fantasy.
Our imagination
can grow beyond
into a scene
that’s never gone.
The old of life
some like to hide
as a memory
deep inside.
Held as blessings
to never depart
the old of life
has a beating heart.
Found as moments
time did concede,
the old of life
might then proceed.

for Nov 25,  2017

Without a dreamer
our lives would not ever grow,
for dreams are the fuel.

Countless desires
become as our endless debts
as our wants dig graves.

Tomorrow’s mishaps
can be the better lessons
to make us stronger.

Having and holding
does not mean you are owner,
for you might borrow.

A jungle of words
can hide many perceptions
of the truth and fact.

A feather will float
as it is falling Earthward,
but can land askew.

Within in a storm cloud
there are many mysteries
that still elude us.

In need of a breath
you might panic for a time
even if there’s air.

One that is novice
might stand in the wrong moment
that was not for them.

We’re like a flower
as we each blossom and bloom
to become as seeds.

Inside a doorway
there are many decisions
to enter or leave.

A painters artwork
leaves a part of them within
found as the brushstrokes.

Without a challenge
our growth would be stagnant
and life would wither.

Many in a time
can become lesser of life
if we do not learn.

Deciding directions
needs knowledge of the journey
or faith to move on.

Change can help you grow
or leave you in a worse place
filled with more lessons.

Without commonsense
many will stand in the rain,
while others will not.

Answers to questions
might hold many mysteries
that are still not known.

Many ways of life
can be rather confusing
until we’ve lived it.

The journey of life
is the way we each travel
and lessons we learn.

Now is just a time
that will soon be history,
so use it wisely.

A fragrant flower
can be your best memory
reminding of love.
