Blessings and Nightmares


Hello my friends

I’m back LOL.  October has come to an
end and November has awakened.  I hope
you survived Halloween Mwahahaha.  We
didn’t do much other that watch TV being
we live out in the boonies and there are no
nearby kids to do trick or treating.  So we
just enjoyed the day.  I of course wrote a
few more Halloween poems hehehe.  Yep,
couldn’t help my self 🙂  We had a lot of
high winds come through here Friday and
we thought we were gonna blow away LOL.
The house was shaking so much it made
my computer monitor rock back and forth
as well as everything in the house hehehe,
but my computer monitor was the most
noticed by me LOL.  My roof repair held
tight.  Now for the test of winter and the
snows to follow.  Speaking of snows,  it
looks as though according to my weather
programs that we might get some snow
this week.  It can bring its snowy self on.
I’m ready for it LOL.  Snow blowers are
charged and ready to be used.  I love the
snow and all.  The only thing I have a few
problems with is the length of time that
it snows LOL.  Yeppers,  5-6 months of
the stuff is overkill 🙂  Anyways,  anywhere
you live there are things that are not so
great.  Heat,  rain,  hurricanes,  tornadoes
as well as things such as fires and floods.
It’s all about what you can find that you
can handle or the place that suits you.
If we spend all of our time focusing only
the bad things,  we tend to overlook the
good things.  I enjoy the summers that
are not the stifling temperatures and all
that I suffered through in Texas when I
lived there.  Of course there were many
good things about living in Texas such
as we could go swimming and we enjoyed
driving down to Port Aransas TX time to
time,  but up here there are many things
to see that inspire my photography and
my poetry that are not in Texas.  I have
seen the autumn colors and the snow that
envelopes my heartbeat as it enhances
my poetry.  Yep,  each place has its own
blessings and nightmares hehehehehe.
So,  what else is there to talk about???
Well,  Judy and I are anxiously waiting
to watch a new episode of God Friended
Me at 8 PM.  If you haven’t watched it
and would like to watch it sometime look
and find when it’s on in your listings.
It’s on channel 8 on DISH up here,  but
it might be another channel for you 🙂
We went to town Friday and did a little
grocery shopping and then went and got
us something to take home to eat from
Pizza Hut for me, and Subway for Judy.
So we only ate a small portion Friday
night and Saturday,  so we’ve still got
enough for dinner tonight,  which also
means that we do not have to cook 🙂
I made us cinnamon buns and the boys
some sausage links for breakfast today.
I did a little sealing on the porch to cut
out the air flow from the center of the
porch roof to the house.  It was creating
quite a breeze in between the roof and
the ceiling of the porch LOL.  I fixed
it when I got up today before I fixed us
breakfast.  There’s not a lot that goes
on around this place.  We live pretty
simple lives spending much of our time
watching TV and wrestling with our
boys/dogs.  Oh yea,  Our youngest
grandson got a job at Walmart and
he’s doing a great job from what we
hear 🙂  Oh yea,  I told Judy just a
moment ago that I was thinking of
going ahead and publishing 2 more
books being I have books 11 and 12
ready and all I have to do now is a
lot of formatting and then upload it
and then proceed with the process.
LOL I’ve already got quite a few
written for book 13.  Yes I write a
lot.  Anyways,  I still have plans on
publishing a couple of Christmas
versions of my books as well as a
few others.  So,  that’s about all I’ve
got for you.  God has been good
to us.  He has His hands wrapped
tightly around us and He’s holding
us in His arms.  I’m sure we have
a load of angels watching over us
as well.  There are many times that
we can feel their presence.  So now
I reckon it’s time for me to be taking
my little journey back through all of
my rambling to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
have stumbled upon a fairly decent
title about halfway back through my
rambling and now after checking I see
that it’s not been used yet,  so used it
shall be.  Here goes…

Blessings and Nightmares

Time is but a factor
of the minutes that pass,
for as we remember
the first might be vast.
Many times nightmares
of passed days dreams
are then but only
the way that it seems.
It could be our vision
remembering when
blessings of a moment
that then turned to sin.
Yet looking clearer
you might see the truth
blessings of one day
were nightmares of youth.
The seasons pass us by
to uncover our prayers
lifetimes of hopeful
blessings and nightmares.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even a little of my rambling.
Yep,  I do ramble don’t I!  Well it’s 33 F
degrees now at 6:30 PM and supposed to
get down to 28 by morning.  I’ve ordered
us 200 gallons of heating oil and it should
be delivered Tuesday.  Although they may
not be able to get all 200 gallons in being
we’ve still got maybe 70 gallons,  but that’s
OK.  At least we’ll have a full tank.  They
can put what’s left on our tab.  We should
be good for a few months.   I’ll continue to
put a 100 dollars on our tab each month
so that when we need it again,  we’ll be all
set if we don’t run into problems.  Yep we
do the best we can to survive.  A really
good friend of mine (Oscar Rogers) called
the other day to check in on us and see
how we’re doing.  He’s been a good friend
of mine since the 70’s.  We used to work
together at the Wills Point Chronicle 🙂
It was great hearing from him.  My mom
is doing well with her transition to living
an apartment in the Dallas area.  She’s
just 2 miles from Peggy so she’ll be OK.
Anyways,  that’s about all I have for ya
other than what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poetry
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems
and 4 of them are Christmas style with
1 of them being a Halloween poem LOL.
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 believe it’s time for me to begin
my search for that hardly elusive real
bad at hiding off switch,  but not before
I wish you a most joyous and blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now,  hmm where
can that off switch be trying to hide??
Maybe this time it put some effort into
it’s hiding spot LOL.  NOPE,  LOL,
I see ya you silly little whippersnapper.
Trying to hide behind a clear bottle
of eyeglass cleaner wasn’t the brightest
idea for a hiding spot.  Try harder 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Winter Proceeds

Just over the way
you might recognize
a group of ducks
below winter’s skies.
You might even see
in a season’s pond
them just swimming
and carrying on.
You may even hear
a quack or two
while they splash
just like ducks do.
Winter proceeds
its glorious trail
pathways of hopeful
snowflakes set sail.
It brings into view
Christmassy themes
as snowflakes arrive
creating their scenes.
Just like the billows
of speckled designs
painted by God
of which He refines.
Seasons of Ducks
thrashing around
in a wintery pond
a wonderful sound.
Bringing about life
as time marches on
as winter proceeds
until it is gone.

Day of Halloween

Horrors of a night
begin with a scene
a time and place
of a life’s requiem.
The days may begin
as a haunted house
a place as a face
of spirits espouse.
A day of Halloween
is a awesome sight
pumpkins decorated
to glow in the night.
Children will walk
saying trick or treat
in hopes the evening
getting candy to eat.
There may be a house
of a haunted decor
that children refuse
to visit their door.
It might be scary
and a magical view
this house of time
with a worn out hue.
Dreams may exist
of days of past
deep in its walls
as shadows aghast.
Yet it may just be
a holiday scene
within the moments
a day of Halloween.

Bench of Thoughts

Think for a moment
look for a clue
the signs of the times
to do what to do.
Often it’s emotions
gathered in a storm
thought for a moment
as mangled forlorn.
Seek for the blessings
of a thought away
a time so divine
as you kneel to pray.
Sat upon a bench
as the minutes multiply
you might discover
how,  when and why.
You might even find
a place in your heart
that vibrates of love
for times work of art.
It might encompass
a feeling of bliss
as a moment you recall
of a heartfelt kiss.
Unleash your heart
in a prayerful array
and let God guide you
day after day.
Allow your sadness
to travel across
to discover your smiles
on a bench of thoughts.

Winter’s Sheen

With time ticking
as a clock on the wall
the season’s beginning
stands high above all.
It shines reflections
of the season’s delight
within the portions
of wintertime white.
Glimmering beauty
as a season’s display
found as the echoes
a Christmastime day.
Centered around snow
so fluffy and cold
it creates glistening
time that’s foretold.
It may seem chilling
with snow all around
a wintertime sight
with so much astound.
Just like a moment
you might remember
a fireplace burning
amidst one December.
A seasonal doorway
that swings as a smile
opening memories
for times to compile.
Look deep within them
each wonderful scene
and find the magic
within winter’s sheen.

Echoes of Autumn

Blessings of a moment
prayers come in sight
as life and times created
from daytime to night.
Echoes of a dreamscape
become as a glance
while time continues on
with its own romance.
Seducing our eyesight
as a life giving way
showing and bestowing
a timeless array.
The colors of autumn
display their many views
as scenes within scenes
with magical hues.
Creating our memoirs
as a seasonal design
to reflect on in pictures
we’ve taken time to time.
Seeming as shadows
as glimpses from seed
like a book with pages
life’s given to read.
Find deep within you
the times alive and well
things you remember
sweet stories to tell.
Search with your heart
and see what is there
the echoes of autumn
a scent of fresh air.

Mindful Journeys

Tracks we’ve traveled
places we’ve gone
become as memories
that continue on.
Finding destinations
we’ve not needed go,
but still we traveled
and it helped us grow.
Minutes connections
engaged with a style
bring about hours
that days may beguile.
Scented with aromas
of wants and needs
our mindful journeys
might seem as weeds.
Yet as each chapter
of our life passes by
we might find lessons
that give reasons why.
They may seem harsh
as roads of despair,
but end with blessings,
answers to prayer.
Find your true footing
on the tracks of time
in mindful journeys
to your own design.

Portfolio of Life

Written in the minds
of wintertime’s views
many may perceive
those holiday hues.
Christmas enhanced
as a stage in flow
found as a pattern
of Christmassy snow.
A mere portfolio
things accounted for
timelessly seeming
to some so bizarre.
Many though love it
the sceneries bliss
Christmas in essence
of a wintertime kiss.
Time becomes alive
as then is in place
a portfolio of life
that many embrace.
Dreamers of time
become as they wish
as written in pages
of days of delish.
Scenes ones see
that are oh so divine
as Christmas lights
twinkle and shine.
Putting forth a glow
of a season of style
a portfolio of life
to give ones a smile.
A glimmering scene
that many will view
enlightens their eyes
red, green and blue.
Yet it’s just a dream
that’s written within
a portfolio of life
in hopes to begin.

Bridge of Illusion

When sights appear
on an autumn day
time might be found
in a colorful way.
There may be rocks
amidst each view,
but a river just may
disperse waters blue.
By creating a theme
of a colorful style
a bridge of illusion
might show a smile.
It might have hidden
behind such a scene
a time and place
a running stream.
You might perceive
a time of confusion
found within life,
a bridge of illusion.

Embarking Winter

Traveling journeying
down cold snowy roads
delivers the impact
of smiles by the loads.
Christmas type views
with a wintery style
embarking journeys
with a glistening smile.
Wintertime’s memoirs
are so timelessly found
within our emotions
as snow on the ground.
Living as our dreams
that moments unlock
hearts found blissful
as season’s time clock.
Steadfast with prayer
for wintertime dreams
as seasons we remember
with the magical scenes.
Created as heartbeats
with pulsating times
Christmas unleashes
its wondrous designs.
Some maybe shining
and some then at peace
showing the artwork
of Heaven’s release.
Blessings that become
as life front and center
Christmastime scenes
when embarking winter.

Passing Leaves

Links to changes
find their phase
scenes of ages
passing days.
Leaves may fall
and create views
scenic changes
times infuse.
Like a heartbeat
leaves may shine
as wind blowing
time to time.
You might begin
seeing colors
textures growing
like no others.
Weaving wonders
just like a web
flowing bestowing
as an oceans ebb.
Maybe branches
changing views
life creates its
scenic hues.
Giving moments
time achieves
as our heartbeats
passing leaves.

for Nov 2,  2019

Fists full of dollars
cannot buy true happiness,
it should be within.

Living for a moment
might elude you from the best,
for you might be blind.

In search of the truth
many lies will be exposed
and they might seem true.

Needless are wantings
that only fulfill moments
leaving you empty.

Today brings turnstiles
in form of living flowers
awaiting to bloom.

Misleading concepts
can overturn many views
if they’re convincing.

Change is like the wind
blowing many directions
with the good and bad.

People of a time
might hold tight to a moment
and not see right now.

Fact over fiction
is often argued knowledge
with stupidity.

Powerless are ones
that stand still and do nothing,
but count the seconds.

Becoming a breeze
can evolve how you get by
and make you as air.

Fields of illusions
provide many ways of life
compiled in a dream.

Twitching nervously
can be your fears from within
or a health issue.

Outside looking in
can be a beckoning life
wanting to enter.

Trials by fire
can often become problems
burning way to hot.

Tears for a moment
can become rivers of time
flowing rapidly.

Life can be a style
that someone chooses to live
that is also death.

Lifestyles of a rose
are built upon many thorns
that will make you bleed.

Harvesting your thoughts
for moments to remember
can fuel depression.

Conclusions we find
might not be of the true facts
when facts are involved.

Seeking for grasses
in the fields of persuasion
might leave you empty.

Shadows of ourselves
might be seen in the future
and not show the truth.
