So Thankful


Hello my friends

It’s getting cooler with each passing day
and we’re in midst of a drought which is
causing quite a few wells to run dry.  We
need a lot of rain.  Normally this is our
rainiest month the same as May,  but it’s
not this year.  If we don’t get the rain we
need before the freezes start,  we’re going
to be in for trouble with many more wells
drying up.  Our well is doing good so far.
It’s a deep well,  but there are many with
shallower wells.  Anyways,  we pray for
rain not only for us,  but for the many
that are suffering with the fires that are
heavily aflame and the many that might
be the same as us up here in Maine with
much need for rain to suffice their wells.
It looks as though we might have a slight
chance for some rain showers beginning
Tuesday,  but for how long,  that is not
known.  It’s just a forecast/guestimate.
It would be a blessing if it poured rain
all week long and put some much needed
water in the rivers that are now ceasing
to flow or have already ceased to flow.
So,  next topic.  The sun’s shining bright
today.  Judy’s youngest daughter Helena
called a little bit ago wanting to know if
her and Christian (her son/our grandson)
could come and visit,  so they’re on the
way.  I figured I’d get as much writing
done as possible before they get here 🙂
Judy has spent a few days visiting with
her sister’s and older brother as they
sorted out pictures that used to belong
to their mom that has passed on.  They
all got a little drunk and all as they had
a sort of Irish wake for their younger
brother Ricky that passed on.  Me and
the boys/dogs stayed here at home while
we waited for Judy to return.  Here at
home it has been not too eventful.  We
have been trying to get things cleaned up
in the living room and the porch to get
ready for my daughter Jamye and her
daughter Sami (my granddaughter) to
come and visit.  They are coming up on
the 30th or thereabouts.  We’ve made
plans to go mini golfing and all for her
birthday which is the 29th and our 19
year wedding anniversary which is Oct 2.
We’re combining them into one event
and hopefully have Judy’s daughters to
join us with a few more grandkids.  It
should be a good time.  LOL hopefully
the rain doesn’t decide to do a dump on
our parade,  but as far as I can see in
the forecast it looks to be maybe a little
cloudy,  but no rain for those days.  So,
what else is in the agenda for us?  Well,
It looks like this week will be pretty lax.
It seems by the sound of Benny’s bark,
that Helena and Christian are here LOL,
so I guess I’ll get back to this in a bit 🙂
Ok,  they’re gone.  We had a great visit
with them.  I got my tripod out and took
a couple of pictures of us all together 🙂
Christian said he’ll try to come and see
us again soon.  I always loved watching
Youtube gaming videos with him and
just spending time with him.  They grow
up.  I now have a feeling that I sort of
understand how my grandparents felt
when I no longer had the time to do the
things I used to do with them,  like fish,
cook,  work in the garden along with
many other things.  I wish I hadn’t of
gotten so busy with things.  I really miss
my time with grandmother and pawpaw.
Those are some of my greatest memories.
Nowadays we have digital cameras and
cell phones with cameras.  Back in those
days the cameras that I could afford
were not that great and plus they were
not that popular.  On top of the fact
that I wasn’t into photography near as
much as I am now.  So,   I haven’t got
any pictures of me with my grandparents.
All I have is memories of which I truly
treasure.  According to one of my many
friends that is a psychic,  my pawpaw is
watching over me and waiting for me
just as my dad is and they come to look
in on me time to time.  That of course
was something that I already knew as
I can often feel their presence.  I am
so thankful for all of the blessings that
God has given me,  such as a loving
family.  I am also thankful for my wife
that He has put in my life.  She loves
me unconditionally even though I am
sure I’m hard to live with at times 🙂
Thank You Lord for all of the many
blessings that I have received and the
many that I am sure I will encounter.
AMEN.  Now I believe it’s time for me
to take a look back on all that I have
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,  it looks
as though I may have found a decent
title just about a quarter the way back
through my rambling and now after
checking I see that it hasn’t been used
yet,  so used it shall be.  Here goes.

So Thankful

Yesterdays dreams
are shadows of time
so often remembered,
but real hard to find.
Yet,  in the shadows
the wondrous arrays
make me so thankful
for those distant days.
Remembering a scene
as time’s work of art
created from moments
times heart to heart.
Within those seconds
sweet minutes appeared
showing the blessings
that timeless endeared.
Forming a turnstile
swinging in the breeze
I find I’m so thankful
the times so at ease.
Being able to revisit
each wonderful time
I’m oh so thankful
for my memory’s mind.
A blessing from God
as a gift of true love
recording every thing
that good is made of.
So I thank You Jesus
and Your Father too
for giving me blessings
found tried and true.
Look for the blessings
with each step you take
and be oh so thankful
for the good you partake.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even a little of my rambling.
I haven’t got much else to tell you other
than what I tell you every 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.  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 all a
truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
to find that off switch that is terrible at
hiding LOL.  Hmm,  I just happened
to notice my prescription bags rustling
a little bit when I glanced that direction.
You wouldn’t happen to be hiding in
or behind those things,  would ya LOL.
I see you peaking from behind my
prescription bags with my Advair and
my asthma inhaler inside.  Why not
try hiding behind something that does
not move so easily or just stay still 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Hushaby Lullaby

Dreams in the night
as moonlight shines
might come to life
as cloudy outlines.
Formed as a picture
that envelops you
singing life’s lullaby
a skyline to view.
Moonlight’s sonata
composed up above
as clouds drift into
dreamlands thereof.
Creating a doorway
to another place
the hushaby lullaby
is time to embrace.
Many only perceive
a darkness of night
as just but a phase
of times moonlight.
Yet there are others
that see it as gold
with a sky of beauty
and dreams foretold.
Let loose your fears
of the dark of night
and begin a dream
within moonlight.
Listen to the sounds
of the midnight sky
as it sings a song
hushaby lullaby.

Waves of Dreams

Waves of life
can create style
formed of time
we might beguile.
Time’s desires
may live within
waves of dreams
minds transcend.
Many designs
blessings arrays
are God’s gifts
for future days.
Yet as dreams
an ocean breeze
a wave becomes
as dreamers seas.
Find some joy
 within the scenes
Heaven’s bliss
waves of dreams.

Wading Through

Searching seeking
a life’s mystery
a wading voyage
can set you free.
Allow your steps
to flow on through
to time and place
with another view.
The waters of time
can become still
and for a moment
give life to feel.
Search for truth
beneath the waves
such as ripples
different arrays.
Become the waters
flowing through
and let the lessons
guide you anew.
God will bestow
the best then to be
in waters of life
for you and me.
Then for a second
you might find
oceans of dreams
of God’s design.
Bestowing peace
in times thereunto
many blessings
wading through.

Without Walls

Within the sky
clouds might form
becoming designs
to then be born.
Time might hold
a mysterious place
that has no walls,
but only a face.
Cloudy dreams
floating in the sky
maybe with rain
or almost dry.
Life’s designers
of changing debuts
in windows of life
with many views.
So,  look closely
and see what falls
life from above
is without walls.

Heavenly Sky

Sight of a bird
as minds in flight
creates an illusion
of a magical sight.
Time opens up
to a heavenly view
a transfixing scene
with light of anew.
Scenes exposed
as angels up above
floating gracefully
with heavenly love.
Hope may come
as a prayer of time
becoming dreams
an angelic design.
You might see
the minutes to fly
birds of a feather
in a heavenly sky.

Look So Near

Minutes may seem
an unending view,
but faraway sights
may be near to you.
You might not see
the connecting dots
that bring into view
the distant thoughts.
You may even find
a timeless display
mimicking our sky
in wondrous array.
It might transpose
all that you’ve seen
and become nearer
a cinematic dream.
Enhanced illusions
can become styles
that look so near,
but be of the miles.
Formed from want
of a so near design
we might dream on
with hope in mind.
 So open your eyes
to see what’s there
a time or a place
with a breath of air.
Find a perspective
that is truly sincere
with heaven’s scenes
which look so near.

Sea of Peace

Scenes will awaken
as life’s surprise
creating windows
to reflect the skies.
Sailing in a dream
becomes as a gaze
beating as a heart
with rhythmic ways.
So many try to see
behind closed doors
and find emptiness
with creaking floors.
 Locate the moment
that becomes true
flowing peacefully
within a sea of blue.
Allow for the scenes
of a time’s release
to display Heaven
within sea of peace.

Flowing Minds

Trickling beauty
becomes a dream
flowing as water
within a stream.
Creating choices
things to become
in flowing minds
of a seasonal sun.
Rippling assets
trickling through
time can unleash
a wonderful view.
Giving you peace
on a stressful day
as flowing minds
discover a way.
Like a small river
a time to bestow
that’s so peaceful
it pours of a flow.
That of blessings
heaven’s designs,
this is a moment
of flowing minds.

Springtime Memories

I’m often dreaming
of the seasonal hues
that’s after winter
with colorful views.
Flowing blooming
in wondrous arrays
springtime memories
with bright sunrays.
The moments shine
of a seasonal sight,
one that continues
from day to night.
With different views
the seconds expose
as heavenly blessings
that may be a rose.
In grasses of green
display many things
maybe of doorways
to even more scenes.
Moments come alive
as time passes on
springtime memories
 that create a song.
 Sung with emotion
of sentimental plains
seasons of grandeur
a heartbeat attains.
God gives beauty
with seasonal flair
springtime memories
as a breath of air.

The Vulture

So many scavenge
and seek others gain
just like a vulture
for things to attain.
Not putting effort
and giving their all,
some only scavenge
to see others fall.
Taking the earnings
of many that strived
and being a vulture
saying you tried.
Seek the right ways
to earn your keep
and you might then
have peaceful sleep.
Find the blessings
of an honest culture
doing your best
not being the vulture.

for Sept 19,  2020

Many that gather
may not be the same value,
but of the same looks.

Listening to life
as a river flows steady
you may hear the rocks.

Time is a bubble
that we cannot see or hear,
but yet it exist.

Venturing a field
you might discover moments
that enlighten you.

The quicksand of life
can be formed from ignorance
digging your own grave.

Beyond existence
there might be some illusions
that become alive.

Traveling minutes
are connected by seconds
that we may not see.

When lost in a dream
you might find some mysteries
that help you along.

Living in the now
allows the past to find peace
letting time move on.

Listing in the waves
many find themselves sinking
without seeking help.

Losing perspective
can cause negativity
when seeking answers.

The lines on a face
might not be from ones laughter,
but from their sadness.

The stages of life
hold many changing chapters
our journeys unfold.

Opening your eyes
you might discover windows
that were always there.

When painting pictures
you might discover colors
that you did not see.

The wind speaks visions
as leaves begin their passage
blowing in autumn.

Sheltered from a storm
ones might not understand it
and one day see rain.

The heart of true love
holds no grip on what it sees,
but what that it feels.

When making changes
look for better ways to go
and not in circles.

Tomorrows doorways
might have a few deceptions
that lead to nowhere.

Breathing in a breath
you might notice aromas
smelling like a skunk.

Without commonsense
ones might end up falling down
without a parachute.
