Bright Sunshine


Hello my friends

I hope you had a nice August.  It’s done
and gone now and September is upon us.
I had a great birthday yesterday.  Judy
and I went up to Presque Isle for dinner
at the Governor’s Restaurant.  I as I have
always done,  took pictures up there and
back.  I got the Fisherman’s Platter and
Judy got the Maple Chicken Poutine.  I
was unable to eat all of my fish,  so I had
mine put in a take home box.  We’re set
for dinner tonight LOL.  There’s more
than enough left for the 2 of us.  We may
even have more left over for a nighttime
snack hehehe.  Anyways,  we had a good
time.  I got me a couple of pieces of pie
(Chocolate Creme) to bring home  for
my birthday.  I don’t do a lot of sweets
so a cake would of been a waste.  I ate
one of my pieces of pie last night and
I’ll eat the other tonight 🙂  I took a lot
of pictures yesterday and I’m sure I will
post a few of them in my stationery.  I’ll
also use a few for poetry pictures that I’m
still busy doing LOL.  One day I might
publish another book or 2,  but for now
I’ll wait to see how the 10 that I have
already published do.  I still have plans
for publishing a couple of Christmas
poetry picture books and a few other
ideas,  but I’m not in any hurry.  I’m
sure I’ll do it one day LOL.  I’ll keep
on writing poetry till possibly the day I
die or I am unable to do it anymore :).
You would not believe how many poetry
pictures I have already done.  For that
matter you surely would not believe how
many poems I’ve written in my lifetime.
Yeppers,  it’s into the multi thousands 🙂
I guess you could say that poetry is a big
part of my life.  It keeps me sane LOL.
So,  what else has gone on around this
place?  Oh yea,  Judy got her yearly flu
shot Wednesday of last week and I got the
first flu shot that I’ve had since the real
early 90’s 🙂 LOL.  Back then the day
that I got my flu shot I came down with
a heavy dose of the flu,  but haven’t had
it in the years since that I haven’t had a
flu shot.  So you can guess it was a big
surprise that I didn’t come down with the
flu after my shot Wednesday hehehe and
I’m really glad of that.  It would’ve sucked
to have the flu on my birthday.  So now
I’m 63.  LOL I thought I would be dead
and gone by now hahaha.  When I was a
little boy I thought that age 40 was when
life ended hehehe.  Nope,  it’s like a slide
in the bright sunshine.  It might get hot
and scald your butt on the way down it
and other times it might seem fun,  but
the surprise is when you get to the end of
the slide to either hit the gravel or the
soft grass LOL.  Yes I have a weird sense
of humor.  I’m figuring that if you’ve
been reading my journal for very long,
you would already be aware of that LOL.
I have had my share of hot slides as well
as rough landings in rocks and gravel :).
I’m still alive.  Those times just made me
stronger MENTALLY,  but my body is
a total other story hehehe.  We’ve all got
our versions of a living Hell that we can
remember,  but it is more important to
remember the good times and to always
understand,  that without what we went
through,  we would not be who we are
today and we might not of experienced
the many good times that we have had if
we had not of also seen and been through
the dark times.  Thank You God for all
that You allowed in my life to enhance
my personality and experiences to help
me grow to be the man that I am today.
Thank You also for always looking out
for us and sending a multitude of angels
to protect us.  Now I believe it’s time
for me to take my little journey through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can
find me 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…
I think I may of stumbled on a decent
title about a 3rd of the way back in
my rambling and now after checking
I see that it has not been used yet,  so
used it shall be today.  Here goes…

Bright Sunshine

Our life and times
might now seem great
as now and then
shows a different date.
But yet as a turnstile
the doors we go through
our moments pass on
to yet another view.
We might see sunshine,
and we might see rain
as life does its thing
on our windowpane.
Time creates stories
that can become gold
remembered as journeys
from young unto old.
Look for the blessings
in each day’s design
for often they’re creating
our bright sunshine.

There ya go.  I hope that you liked the
poem  and it spoke to you.  I also hope
that you enjoyed my rambling hehehe.
I bet ya wonder how it is I can always
come up with  so much to ramble about,
don’t ya 🙂  Well,  to be honest,  I would
to LOL.  I never know what I’m gonna
write about.  I just start writing and it
happens,  the same as the poem.  I have
no idea most times of what I will write
about or even which direction the poem
will head.  I just let my mind to unleash
all of the words that are always within
it whirling around like an unfathomed
storm.  Sometimes there’s rainbows
and sometimes there’s a world within a
world thriving on emotions.  Anyways,
I hope I’ve kept you entertained for
yet another week.  I guess it’s time for
me to be telling you what I tell you
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  I
wrote 10 more poems and there are 2
Christmas poems mixed in with 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.  So now I reckon it’s time
for me to see if I can find that hardly
elusive off switch,  but surely not before
I wish you a blessings filled week and a
safe and happy Labor day.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
where can that ornery off switch be at
this time?  Hiding is not 1 of its greatest
fortes,  but you’d think that in time it
would learn LOL.  Anyways,  searching.
Hmmm and Hmmmm a little longer 🙂
I think I see movement from behind my
hanging gift card collection LOL.  Yep,
there ya be.  Hiding behind one of my
Christmas cards.  We’re ya trying to
read them while you were hiding LOL?
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Seas of Design

An ocean’s path
that time rolls on
displays a sign
as a seamless song.
Seas of emotion
seas so amazing
create the scenes
many are gazing.
Waves will grow
and then fall away
creating a path
from day to day.
Leaving signatures
scenes thereunto
times it gathers
to create a view.
Each view is life
as a timeless detail
the seas of design
as a wishing well.
Many a dreamer
rest on the shore
waiting for life to
display some more.
Seas of illusions
seas of a prayer
become as emotion
moments to share.
God filled blessings
to ease up the mind
are as the moments
in seas of design.

Life’s Memoir

A mind’s reflections
might find a view
a life of memories
found within you.
Walking on a beach
on a glistening day
or maybe enjoying
another display.
A mind remembers
the good and bad
the times in the past
of happy or sad.
Turn loose of sadness
and remember so well
the goodness of times
that a heart can tell.
Listen to the waves
or watch the sun rise
within the memories
of life’s sunny skies.
Search within that
and find you a smile
a time you remember
of a magical style.
Let loose the sadness
and thank God today
for the blessings of life
that came your way.
The times so special
from near to afar
that live within you
as a life’s memoir.

A Lost Red Leaf

Looking for a way
a time’s connection
we each may find
a general direction.
Though in our stride
we might perceive
a time that begins
as others may leave.
Our different colors
and ways of style
might create sadness
or someone’s smile.
As a lost red leaf
in the grasses of time
we might not see
our own true design.
Seeing only our life
of a different hue
leaves within time
where grasses accrue.
We may not perceive
our sight and sound,
for we might only
be seeing the ground.
Not seeing blessings
life’s burning fires,
while only seeing
wants and desires.
Don’t allow moments
to fill you with grief
for you’re much more
than a lost red leaf.

Seascape Dreams

An evening’s scene
of a magical view
becomes a dream
of a sea of blue.
Close to the shore
of a timeless mind
a seascape dream
creates its design.
A design of beauty
a design of bliss
of seascape dreams
of a seasonal kiss.
It might be real
what you fantasize
a seascape time
with evening skies.
Open your mind
and dream away
of a timeless scene
of a distant day.
Don’t let it fade
allow it to breathe
in seascape dreams
you can believe.
Found as blessings
uncountable true
that come and live
deep within you.
Such as a story
that you can read
of seascape dreams
a planted seed.
Planted as scenery
things for a while
to help the times
that need a smile.
Then when sadness
finds your scenes
look for blessings
in seascape dreams.

Imagine That

Far beyond views
of a distant sky
time begins quests
for clouds to fly.
Maybe together
or maybe all alone
awaiting to gather
thunder to moan.
Imagine you a story
of a skyline’s array
drifting up above
from day unto day.
Look real closely
and you may see
sights for your eyes
so heavenly free.
The sky may change
to a colorful tint
maybe that of blue
with a pinkish hint.
Find you a vision
and carry it through
to exist and live on
deep within you.
Imagine it’s a book
awaiting for words
such as a blue sky
filled full of birds.
Now try to focus
and create a matte
a canvas of dreams
and imagine that.

Life Changes

Stages are prepared
for others to see
life changing phases
for you and for me.
Time gives us notice
as life moves along
creating pictures
of evening to dawn.
With just a breath
the scenes blow away
changing the views
from day unto day.
It might be snowing
or raining for a while
as all of the seasons
give times to compile.
The leaves on trees
might change color
bringing the essence
a sight like no other.
Life changes phases
leaving just a hint
of all that was there
before its ascent.
Becoming as dreams
in somebody’s eyes
with textures of time
in seasonal skies.
Time has a doorway
that often rearranges
displays of pathways
seen as life changes.

Timeless Roads

Sights we’re passing
with lines on roads
can create visions
of heavy loads.
Some as a journey
some as a trail
as timeless roads
might sort of exhale.
They might uncover
a seamless design
as your wheels roll
with time after time.
The aroma of life
on a passing day,
might be a moment
you sought in a way.
For as you travel
and time passes by
minutes tick onwards
and never run dry.
Holding onto life
as a harmonic trail
the whirring of sound
that wheels never fail.
Speaking of a breath
a moment decodes
deciphered rhythms
of timeless roads.

Wintertime Fancy

Snow on a roadway
falling in place
often creates a
slow winter’s pace.
Driving on a road
a cold snowy sight
brings into view
a Christmas delight.
A time of splendor
a magical view
a wintertime fancy
with a whitish hue.
Scenes become art
that once were bland
as snow falls upon
every piece of land.
A Christmas blessing
a heavenly find
a wintertime fancy
an awesome design.
A seasonal display
that eyes look upon
in a wintertime world
and seasonal song.
A Christmastime mix
of a wintertime flair
shows of a dreamer’s
answer to prayer.
Dreams of snowflakes
that come so alive
a wintertime fancy
as blessings arrive.

Winter’s Sun

Joining the journey
is a seasonal hue
with snow glistening
a wintertime view.
The evening’s sun
of a wintertime day
displays so brightly
a wonderful way.
It gives a perspective
of a heavenly prayer
with a touch of grace
and a magical flair.
For as winter’s sun
shines its destiny
it displays a portion
that’s so Christmassy.
Glistening off snow
as an evening delight
seeming as a dream
ones have in the night.
Look at the beauty
that then displays
as clouds gather round
those wintertime days,
Find you a portion
to live on your mind
found as winter’s sun
near Christmastime.

Autumn’s Array

Look to the sky
and all thereabouts
find you a vision
just like the clouds.
You might discover
scenes thereunto
highlights of colors
a wonderful view.
An autumn’s array
of a poetic rhyme
can become alive
inside of your mind.
Such as a storybook
dreamers may read
planting a heartbeat
with one tiny seed.
Look deep inside of
your own inner eye
and find some peace
that will never die.
Give it your passion
and give it your style
as an autumn’s array
that shows a smile.
Now let that smile
increase your view
as it then blossoms
deep inside of you.
Seek for blessings
of each passing day
as you dream of
an Autumn’s Array.

When moving too fast
you might be an accident
waiting to happen.

Seeking for a star
you might find an asteroid
that will never shine.

Under the night sky
stars can be as many voices
speaking of the moon.

Chances we’ve taken
can be lessons which to learn
or better pathways.

Skipping importance
and seeking for only fun
can end with turmoil.

Being a leader
needs you to know the journey
or at least the risks.

Roads of directions
head many different ways,
but some are dead ends.

Clouds that are forming
might not have rain intended,
but only a view.

Many illusions
are not only illusions,
but as our nightmares.

Liars of a day
rely on not forgetting
what they lied about.

Thriving on a gamble
could become your kryptonite
as you lose it all.

The thrills of moments
are contained in their package
as minutes unfold.

Longing for the truth
you might discover the lies
long before the truth.

Deep within ones mind
there may be many nightmares
hidden from the light.

Varieties of life
are fuel for the prejudice
and strength for others.

Many discoveries
are missed when we’re not looking,
so open your eyes.

Time is a mirror
that reflects all that we do
within others eyes.

When hearing voices
you might think they are living,
but they might be ghost.

Traveling backwards
in a moment of despair
you will never grow.

Flowers only grow
when they are taken care of,
by us or by God.

Allowing sadness
to live and thrive within you
will water your death.

Guarding your heartbeat
from others that seek to love
can end all alone.
