Awaiting To Be Raked


Hello my friends

It’s another week gone by and the weather
is becoming more fallish.  The trees in our
field are beginning to change color.  Yep,
autumn is knocking loudly on our door and
from what I hear Monday is the first day of
fall.  Today is one of the warmest days that
we’ve had in over a month.  Right now it’s
79 with a high of 80,  but it’s supposed to
start cooling down beginning tomorrow.  We
in the last week or so had hit the 70’s and
that wasn’t too bad.  Though I do like it
better in the 50 and 60’s or thereabouts 🙂
Soon we will be having winter knocking on
our door and the snow will begin falling 🙂
It’s always a wonderful sight.  OK,  there
are many that do not see it as I do,  but
they’re free to look at it the way that they
want to look at it LOL.  There’s not much
going on around here aside from me doing
a little bit of work for our landlord.  He
asked me the other day if I would weed eat
around 2 of the mobile homes and said he
would pay me 11 dollars an hour.  I said
sure,  but it’ll take me a little time being I’m
not in the best of health you know.  He said
no hurry.  Anyways,  it took me 3 days,  but
 I got it done.  Yesterday (Saturday) I got
the last one finished.  He said he’ll take it
out of our rent,  so that’ll help a whole lot.
I spent 7 hours on those things of course
spread out between 3 days LOL.  So what
else is going on?  LOL well being I have
allergies from Hell,  after all of the weed
eating and mowing,  I can barely talk and
I itch all over hehehe.  It’ll pass. LOL I go
through all of that whenever I mow and
weed eat our own lawn.  I mow and all
mostly for exercise,  being Calvin does
mow,  but there are places that he cannot
get with his rider and I don’t mind doing
it 🙂  As I said,  it’s good exercise.   Yes
I am aware that my allergies will kick me
in the butt LOL,  but it’s better than not
exercising in getting to where I can’t walk.
Yep,  Judy has begun walking out to the
mailbox to check the mail every day and
that’s what I used to do.  I think she’d
rather do that than mow 🙂  Of course in
time there will be no lawn to mow,  but
there will be snow and that’s when I begin
shoveling and snow blowing LOL.  I’ve
gotta keep it where the boys/dogs can go
out and potty.  It might sound like too
much work to you,  but I prefer this over
the 100 plus temps that Texas has each
summer and I do love the sight of snow 🙂
It’s so refreshing.  You’ve known me to
say time and again that snow makes even
the dullest or ugliest sights as a piece of art.
Yep,  since we moved up here December
of 2001,  I’ve fallen in love with the scenes
that I see that I never saw in Texas.  I had
never seen autumn colors other than the
dead leaves that turned brown and covered
the ground awaiting to be raked and snow
had always been a scarce sight to see.  It
might fall one day, but gone the next.  Yep,
I guess I was meant to live up here hehehe.
Judy and I are doing well.  We have our
health issues,  but then,  we are old LOL.
My body has gone through literal Hell
and it’s a freaking miracle that I am even
alive LOL,  so I’m happy with the things
I’m able to do.   I do though wish that I
were able to do more,  but that’s just not
in my playbook 🙂  I thank God for all of
the blessings that I have received.  Thank
You God for all that You have done for
us and all that You will do.  Now I believe
it’s time for me to begin my little journey
back 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 new
poem.   So,  it’s away I go to that place
of my recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  It looks as
though I may have found a decent title
just a few lines back in my rambling and
after checking it looks as though I have
not used it,  so,  used it shall be today 🙂
Here goes…

Awaiting To Be Raked

When moments pass
and then does arrive
the time and place
is right then to drive.
Awaiting a journey
awaiting a path
might show patience
to then and at last.
Look for the lessons
look for the tools
awaiting to be raked
in a life of schools.
For there are many
lessons to come
noon unto night
and dawning of sun.
Don’t think you are
but only half-baked
for you might just be
awaiting to be raked.

Well,  there ya go.  LOL I know,  the poem
might seem silly,  but hey,  I did what I was
able to do with the title.  No matter,, if you
liked it then great,  if ya didn’t then oh well.
I hope you enjoyed my rambling 🙂  I seem
to always have something to ramble about 🙂
There’s not much else to tell you other than
what I tell you every single week and that is,
I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yep,
10 more poems,  but no Christmas poems
this week.  Maybe next week 🙂  I also wrote
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there and I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.  So,  that’s it
and now I believe I need to start my search
for that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most joyous blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Now,  where can that old
ornery off switch be attempting to hide this
time LOL?  Hmm,  searched for it’s regular
hiding spots or most obvious places LOL.
Well,  I’ll be darned,  I believe you found
a brand new place to hide.  🙂 Not a good
place,  but new none the less Hahahahaha.
Hiding behind my prescription bags that
have my respirators and Advair in them.
Would of worked if you knew how to stay
freaking still LOL.  Work on it will ya 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

A Dreamer’s Dream

Skies like water
flow that of style
as a dream of time
with a distant smile.
Connected with life
as waves will roll
a dreamer’s dream
will surely flow.
Flowing as hearts
on a sandy beach
a dreamer’s dream
that many beseech.
Synched as water
of a dreamer’s style
flowing as rhythms
as seconds compile.
A scenic journey
to another day
a dreamer’s dream
that times portray.
Are you a dreamer
of a time and place
with many seconds
that surely enlace?
If you’re a dreamer
take hold my hand,
walk in my words
to a dreamer’s land.
A scene of aqua
and ocean delight
a dreamer’s dream
of day unto night.
Find a perspective
a time to remember
such as an ocean
time’s burning ember.
Find within you
a time so serene
just like a blessing
a dreamer’s dream.

Mornings of Sunshine

Awaken now dreamers
become as a flame
as life is proceeding
with yet another name.
Mornings of sunshine
can seem at a glance
so very timeless as
blessings romance.
Awaken your eyesight
and see what is there
mornings of sunshine
as answers to prayer.
Even if rain clouds
are now the display
a rainbow can come
and brighten your day.
Seek for the dream
of a sunshine sight
as you look onwards
from left unto right.
Find the best moments
within each design
and you’ll awaken
mornings of sunshine.

Running Free

Paws of a moment
running in the wind
find then a lifestyle
a time to ascend.
Free of a leash
or a chain of design
life running free
releases the mind.
Seeking for blessings
seeking for truth
maybe of old days
times of your youth.
Run for a lifetime,
but enjoy the view
watching it pass by
from old to anew.
Look beyond a field
of a past times array
and find all the best
in now and today.
Seek for the joy
as you tarry about,
then look around
in ways and out.
Be a dog running
in a field of bliss
planting your paws
upon a scenic kiss.
Find then the time
to search a field’s sea
unleashing your mind
to begin running free.

Beyond Existence

In search of times
that came and went
can go on beyond
a lifetime’s intent.
A sheltered heart
can become as gray
beyond existence
of day after day.
Within an explosion
of a timeless scene
some might become
as sights so serene.
But seen from afar
as our own designs
some only see
within their minds.
Yet as a heartbeat
we each grow dim
as life moves along
we sink or swim.
Beyond existence
there is a sight
as a timeless voyage
of wrong and right.
Truth comes forth
as a steering wheel
showing the journey
we tried to conceal.
Our mere memories
become so alive
beyond existence
ways that we drive.
For as our emotions
are shown to view
we find what’s false
and all that’s true.
Look to The Father
as a Heavenly guide
beyond existence
with eyes open wide.

Sky of Colors

Evenings arrangement
of colorful sights
displays a dreamworld
of heavenly lights.
Clouds seen as oceans
floating in the breeze
create a sky of colors
to gently appease.
Displayed as the flavors
of a tasty treat
you might see a skyline
that looks good to eat.
There might be hills
creating its view
that roll on and on
with the darkest of hue.
Life might become as
a memorized dream
a time and a place
that seems as a stream.
Flowing across the sky
as a river of light
creating a turnstile
that drifts into night.
It may just be a dream
found in your mind
as a sky of colors
a wondrous design.
It may even be like
what hopeful discovers
found in a dreamworld
of a sky of colors.

Minutes we seek for
may never show
leaving but only
our wanting to grow.
Our own persuasions
of a wanted array
leaving us breathless
as life drifts away.
Floating on a river
of a scenic time
can become alive
inside of our mind.
Breathless portrayals
of oars and a boat
seasons of lifetimes
we try hard to float.
Often so breathless
our hopes can arrive
fulfilling blessings
to help us survive.
So many moments
of a breathless degree
will leave us floating
so happy and free.
Becoming a memoir
of a special design
living as a blessing
a time to unwind.
Scenes so magical
as a heartbeat’s song
found as so breathless
it cannot be wrong.

A Fishing Hole

We often will see
 a moment of truth
reminding of times
we lived in our youth.
Fishing in a pond
of a memory
as a scene so serene
we still wish to be.
In a fishing hole
of a scenic place
I tossed out my line
with a smiling face.
We all can recall
a wonderful day
that lives within us
and never goes away.
God given moments
that come and go
that might just be
a fishing hole.

Lingering Essence

Now may seem blurry
as then comes along
bringing in a moment
as a scenery song.
Sung that of nature
as a scenic grand tour
a lingering essence
of a heartbeat’s allure.
Time is a benefactor
that creates its designs
all the living artwork
that the future refines.
Remembering scenes
that we saw one day
as a lingering essence
and a timeless display.
Maybe beside a pond
an adventurous style
you might discover
a wonderful smile.
As that of oceans
with a rippling hue
within a small pond
of a time or two.
A lingering essence
of a dream you recall
a time in your mind
that now stands tall.
It might be enhanced
by a song you hear
as a lingering essence
of a yesteryear.

Our Blessings

Grasping a lifetime
holding it’s gaze
often becomes as
loneliness ways.
Enlightening scenes
of a day’s request
becomes a doorway
a seasonal zest.
Search the heavens
with an open heart
and let in sunshine
as a work of art.
Then you may find
a fulfilled display
blessings of life
in a magical way.
A moment of time
as heavenly dreams
can become found
as our blessings.

Summer’s Reflections

Many find reflections
in a page of a book
a moment of splendor
wanting another look.
Summertime dreams
become as a stage
maybe of a splashing
a number of a page.
We might read stories
we are wanting again
summer’s reflections
a time way back when.
Find the perspective
of a doorway of time
and open the door
to a riddle or rhyme.
Seek for the rhythms
of a summertime day
a time you remember
that’ll never go away.
Hold special moments
as a venture of old
a time that of pleasure
that then did unfold.
Summer’s reflections
can be so much more
as shadows of dreams
the times you adore.
Hold them within you
and don’t let them go
summer’s reflections
that timelessly flow.

for Sept 21,  2019

Looking deep within
you might discover failures
that became success.

Changing directions
does not always change the view
if it goes with you..

Lost in memories
might open many doors
to loads of regrets.

A butterfly’s flight
can become as a blessing
as peaceful is found.

Synching up your dreams
with moments that come to pass
can empower you.

Fields full of daisies
show the beauty of springtime
as well as summer.

Trading a moment
for a time you wish to be
could leave you empty.

Showers of sunshine
create life within seconds
that moments provide.

Endless seams of time
connect our lives together,
but some look away.

Many memories
are only good for dreaming
and not good for you.

Lasting impressions
can become as our nightmares
shadowing actions.

Tomorrow holds life
as the minutes procreate
creating turnstiles.

Doorways we go through
might hold the good that there is
as well as the bad.

With fiction or fact
a dandelion is a weed
that looks like flowers.

A dreamer’s hopeful
can become as true to life
if it’s meant to be.

Sections of our life
are as rocky roads of time
that become our strength.

When turning around
check the need for direction
before you head out.

Planning a party
for one that does not party
could become failure.

Tracing your footsteps
in a snowstorm of winter
could be hard to do.

Challenges are tools
that can make us much stronger
and show our limits.

Having a bad day
can become as a blessing
as you remember.

Life like Disneyland
can create false happiness
that might turn sour.
