The Porch


Hello my friends

Well it looks as though March has but
only a week or so left in it.  Yep and it
also looks as though spring might be
finally showing its face up here.  Yes I
know,  it was supposed to be March 20,
but we’ve still got a many tons of snow
up here.  It does though appear to be
melting 🙂  I feel sorry for everybody
that lives in low lying areas.  We live
on rather high ground and aren’t too
worried about flooding,  but we do
have a place at the end of our house
that when it rains or the snow melts
it holds water like a pond though 🙂
One year when we had neighbors the
kids put their dads canoe in the little
pond and had a blast rowing from one
side to the other.  I miss all of the kids.
We’re without any neighbors now and
it doesn’t look as though we will get
any anytime soon.  Our landlord is
talking about moving into one of the
trailers though.  LOL I’m not sure
if that’s good or bad.  He’s a good
man.  We feel sort of like family as
we have lived here for over 11 years
now.  Yeppers we’ve lived here longer
than any of the other tenants.  Judy
and I like it here.  The boys can go
outside and potty without worry of
them being run over being we live
quite a ways from the county road 🙂
They know they are not to go out of
our yard.  I don’t allow them to come
with me to check the mail.    They wait
for me in our yard or driveway.  Yep,
they’re good boys.  We taught them
the boundaries using electronic fence
collars.  They don’t need them now
being they have learned,  but we do
use them when we take the boys over
to Judy’s sisters or daughters houses
being they too have the same setup.
Plus every once in a while,  Benny
will get overly curious and go visiting
the neighboring trailers LOL and I
have to once again show him that he
is not to do that hehehe and on goes
the collar again for a brief 🙂  It only
takes a day or so and then he knows.
These boys are gonna totally miss the
snow,  especially Benny LOL.  He
loves to go prancing around on the
snow mounds.  Sometimes he doesn’t
want to come back inside until he’s
done investigating and playing LOL.
He does though finally get to the
point where he can’t handle the cold
anymore and he’ll come in the doggy
door to the porch and wait for us
to let him inside the house 🙂  We’ve
got a rounded mirror hanging on
the porch that allows us to see the
porch from the kitchen window
and be able to see whether Benny
or Rocky are there and ready to
come back inside without having to
open the front door to look Hahaha.
Yeppers,  we keep an eye on those
boys.  LOL we spoil them quite a
bit too 🙂  When they come in we’ll
give them a little treat and when I
say a little treat,  I mean little.  I
give them each a small doggy treat
to show them that they have done
good.  It’s 41 F degrees right now
and the high is supposed to be 42.
It’s supposed to be 9 F degrees by
tomorrow morning though and the
high for tomorrow is 30 F degrees.
So you see,  our temperatures are
still bouncing around quite a bit 🙂
We had trouble with our water the
other day.  The well quit working,
but I called Calvin our landlord
and he got it fixed.  I told him that
it seemed that our water pressure
was very weak and that there might
be a broken water pipe in one of
the other trailers.  He checked and
sure enough,  one of the trailers had
a broken pipe and it was causing
the well to overheat and shut down.
That’s fixed now and our porch is
now not leaking as well.  Some ice
and snow had gotten into some
of the seams and caused the roof
to begin leaking.  Calvin said he
would come back when it’s warmer
and fix it so that doesn’t happen
again.  We live such an exciting
life don’t we LOL.  I have to keep
an eye on our car tires being with
the change of temperatures they
tend to lose air and go flat.  But
I have an old air compressor that
works fairly well.  It plugs into the
cigarette lighter or what was once
known as the cigarette lighter LOL.
I’m gonna buy us 2 new front tires
when I get paid.  The back tires
look good.  The front tires wear
out fastest due to the front wheel
drive.  But if needed I will buy all
4 tires,  but I think the rear tires
will pass inspection 🙂  Of course
inspection isn’t for another couple
of months,  so no hurry on that.
God has been good to us.  He has
looked after us giving all that we
need that we ourselves are not
able.  He has protected us as we
have walked forward into each
and every day.  Thank You Lord
for all that You do for us and all
that You have done.  Now I believe
it is time for me to begin searching
back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find a 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
I believe I may of found a decent
title just about half way back in
my rambling and now after I’ve
checked I see that it has not been
used as of yet,  so used it shall be.
Here goes…

The Porch

A place we rest
and watch the world
as time moves on
and life’s unfurled.
It is a perspective
it is but a view
found on the porch
of then thereunto.
We’ve each got one
a porch of time
a place with vision
a place to unwind.
It is within us
a choice to choose
the porch of life
to help us defuse.
Search your mind
and you will see
the porch of life
a place to be free.
It may be a dream
or a wishful thought
a porch of time
to get you aloft.
To change your view
the porch can be
a Heavenly sight
to set you free.
Given through God
as a porch of style
a time and place
to help you smile.
Look passed sadness
and look passed grief
and get on the porch
and find some relief.

I hope you liked the poem.  I actually
had no idea of what I was gonna do
with that title,  but I guess it worked.
Anyways,  I hope you enjoyed all of
my rambling and maybe just maybe
it gave you a moment’s peace.  Judy
just woke up and came in here with
me and the boys.  I guess it’s almost
time for me to fix us breakfast,  but
I must finish here first.  I can’t think
of anything else to tell you other than
what I tell you every week and that is,
I wrote a few more poems and haiku.
Yeppers 10 more poems with 3 extras
this week and one Christmas style
poem in the midst of them :).  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 be searching for that hardly
elusive off switch,  but not before I
wish you a most wonderful blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Ok so,  where
can that dadgum ornery off switch
be trying to hide this week?  Hmm,
well,  normally I don’t have a camera
SD card bouncing around in front
of me,  but it seems that today that
has changed LOL.  Sheesh,  can’t
you find a place to hide that you
can actually hide behind AND stay
still?  Hahaha,  better luck next time
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzz.

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

Picture’s Memoir

Time is a capsule
that holds in its grasp
life that of artwork
found in the past.
Memories alive then
a picture to view
create deep emotions
of time oh so true.
The past is a painting
that lives in the mind
a picture’s memoir
of a wondrous design.
Time is as seconds
and minutes contained
as that of moments
which pictures retained.
Looking back on then
the days of our lives
we might remember
what we didn’t realize.
The pictures of times
were great to behold
and now as a memory
a story of old.
The times we remember
from near to afar
are found within photos
as a picture’s memoir.

Churning Thoughts

Raging waters
thoughts procure
minutes moving
life’s allure.
Many motions
might become
churning thoughts
a beating drum.
As life crashing
into shore
time becomes
a little more.
Sometimes seen
as wanted things
then some others
haunting dreams.
Churning thoughts
can calm down
if with peaceful
higher ground.
Allow the waters
within you
to find the peace
of Heaven’s hue.
Let the blessings
wash the days
calming moments
wondrous ways.
Allow your mind
to look across
and find peace in
churning thoughts.

Moonlight Eve

The thoughts of life
and times that pass
become as echoes
that shadows cast.
Scenes of moments
heartfelt times
are that of seasons
of so many minds.
Surveying the sky
as a memory
time is of essence
a sight to see.
Recorded seconds
are hours viewed
a moonlight eve
of times altitude.
Many are waiting
for the sky to clear
to show the beauty
of yesteryear.
Yet upon horseback
ones might fall prey
to that of a dream
of another day.
Finding but only
a view of time
that only exist
within their mind.
But they’re praying
for new to perceive
peaceful encounters
of a moonlight eve.

A sky full of dreams
with oceans of sway
opens as a portal
to magical day.
Forming as clouds
of a wonderful view
time is an essence
of a time’s Xanadu.
Shifting and uplifting
the seasons of time
we might imagine
inside of our mind.
A sky with sunshine
beaming so bright
on through the clouds
a shimmering sight.
Xanadu is formed
as the mind foresees
dreamt of in a way
of piano keys.
Playing that of music
which surely belongs
a tune we remember
as magical songs.
The place is imagined
as a living dream
a time and a place
of a rushing stream.
Clouds in the sky
might form that view
the place we imagine
called Xanadu.

Living in the past
we might remember
a thought of a time
found in December.
It might be of snow
or a scenic sky
a time’s afterthought
that now does apply.
You might see life
of a distant hue
a time you remember
that lives within you.
It might be a place
with snow of white
below a blue sky
as winter’s delight.
You might then see
within your mind
a time’s afterthought
of a wondrous design.
Trees might sway
in the winter scenes
some without leaves
and some evergreens.
A mere afterthought
of a seasonal phase
enjoying the moment
the best time to gaze.
This is a moment
that cannot be bought
a time that has passed
a life’s afterthought.

Dreaming Scenes

Roads of life
to journey’s end
dreaming scenes
will then begin.
Times of travels
scenic styles
creating dreams
of many miles.
Across a path
on down the road
dreaming scenes
will then unload.
Giving heartfelt
raging seas
found within
our memories.
Scenes of minds
become alive
sense of styles
a timeless drive.
Just like a dream
of time and place
a feeling felt
or someone’s face.
It might be found
within some things
as wants and wishes
dreaming scenes.

Face of Denial

Life is as artwork
that many don’t see
the face of denial
in you and in me.
We might try to hide
how we are feeling
inside of denial
with words appealing.
Lying to ourselves
and others we meet
the face of denial
soon meets defeat.
For as we continue
our daily chore
hiding how we feel
each day a bit more,
the patterns are seen
as a few catch on
and see the true you
with all of the wrong.
It’s then that friends
are truly found
the ones that are near
when denial’s around.
Learn to be honest
with how you are
and you will grow
much better by far.
So take heed now
your face of denial
and find the truth
of a frown or smile.

A Place Called Peace

Formed as a segment
of a dreamers style
life gives us displays
of a wanted awhile.
Maybe that of snow
on a sunshiny day,
or maybe just a scene
in a magical way.
A place called peace
in a mere photograph
brings back a time
of peace in the past.
The moment it came
it’s scene may of been
but only a view
that did then begin.
A passing moment
that life gave to you
as each now and then
brought a new view.
You might not of seen
the time in true light,
for life moved along
to yet another sight.
God given beauty
with a heavenly scent
textured of love
to a joyous extent.
Moments remembered
that give us release
found in a blessing
a place called peace.

Awakening Views

Morning awakens
with clouds in the sky
forming mere moments
that time can’t deny.
The view is so scenic
it becomes as the day
as it’s awakening
in a wondrous display.
The sky seems to swirl
of a carmelish grin
a time up in the sky
created by the wind.
It seems to be mixing
a story up to tell
and pouring it around
in a wondrous detail.
You might see it
as it’s changing phase
awakening views
that God gave to gaze.
Living as an entity
a story to unfold
a scene like a dream
for us to behold.
It’s just but a moment
a timeless perception
a view up above that
needs no correction.
It’s a moment in time
of magical hues
displayed in a day of
awakening views.

Yesterdays Skies

Winter is a memory
a day that we recall
a time and a place
that’s soon after fall.
Winter brings sights
of snow laden hills
and Christmastimes
a moment fulfills.
Seeing the snowflakes
falling so sweet
creates a great view
of ice cream to eat.
Making snow goodies
morsels of love
from all the snow
that fell from above.
The yesterdays skies
are a timeless scene
the greatest of all
an essence of dream.
I still remember
the songs that played
Christmassy tunes
 like life’s lemonade.
Making much better
from all of the wrong
life seemed to smile in
each Christmas song.
Those days still live on
deep within my eyes
often in my dreams
of yesterdays skies.

From The Stars

We might not see
the who and where
that times display
that lives compare.
We might not know
the truth of then
that from the stars
life entered in.
We might conclude
that certain scenes
are but only
someone’s dreams,
but rest assured
that time will show
the truth of life
and how we grow.
For as perspective’s
found in sight
we might see
the truth in flight.
So many questions
and so many views
have only become
our daily news.
Yet as the planets
Venus and Mars
we may find friends
then from the stars.

Sentimental Path

Beyond our views
of yesterday
we might see
another way.
An olden time
of long ago
a home that stood
that did not grow.
It might be seen
within some trees
a time and place
of memories.
A time when life
was not so wild
a moment’s time
that life compiled.
Seeming so strange
to you and I
a life and times
that just went by.
It left within it
a certain gaze
a different view
of another phase.
A timeless scene
that went too fast
that now is just
a sentimental path.

Within God’s World

In search of time
and life to see
God gives a world
for you and me.
So many blessings
become as a loss
as ones look away
and far across.
Within God’s world
and our designs
we need to seek
the best of times.
The times of hopeful
the times of prayer
to show the needy
that we care.
Within a moment
our lives move on
creating a path
to another dawn.
Let your heartbeat
to find what’s true
the good that’s there
found deep in you.
A peaceful meadow
can surely thrive
within your heart
to keep you alive.
Let your blessings
to be unfurled
with your actions
within God’s world.

Amidst a journey
our pathways might become lost,
but God guides us back.

Walking in roses
you might just find many thorns
hidden deep within.

In fields of choices
there are grasses to choose from,
but some might be weeds.

Predominant task
will often become boring
so change it a bit.

Sleeping on the job
will find you without a job
so pay attention.

Today’s tomorrow
might look much better to have,
but it needs some help.

Various moments
become our lifestyles to live
so be real careful.

Above and beyond
what we find in a turnstile
might be just a dream.

As a flower grows
it becomes beauty of life
within its own way.

Sought after wantings
can become poison of life
if we seek too much.

As doors will open
they give chance for good and bad,
take care to enter.

Winter to springtime
gives a connection to life
that helps each other.

Dreaming of springtime
in the essence of winter
creates a mind’s thaw.

Leaning on others
needs you to be there also
for them to lean on.

Time in a bottle
as a ship within some glass
can suffocate now.

The baggage we hold
and carry throughout our lives
might prevent our growth.

Counting the minutes
can make time seem to slow down
so just move along.

Wasting a moment
not doing what that you should
might find much regret.

A forest of leaves
becomes a jungle of life
held on by the trees.

When breathing too hard
you might find yourself empty
so seek peace and breathe.

An opened window
can allow things to enter
so don’t be stupid.

Within here and now
holds a sight of then and there
that might just fit in.
