We Survived


Hello my friends

It’s been a great passed week.  Judy and
I had a great visit with my daughter and
granddaughter.  We took a scenic drive
and got some great pictures.  I of course
2 days before took a little picture taking
drive to try and see where the best colors
of autumn were depicted.  I took a lot of
great pictures then,  but we had a storm
to blow in the very next day which blew
off many of the leaves.  Thankfully there
were still some trees holding their leaves
in the branches.  We got a lot of great
pictures and a lot of them of us together.
I brought my tripod and Jamye had her
selfie stick so yes,  we got a lot of pictures
of us all together.  It was raining off and
on,  but we survived.  We had planned
on going mini golfing Friday,  but the
weather was not allowing it,  so we took
a drive up to Caribou Maine and visited
with Judy’s eldest daughter and her kids.
Judy’s youngest daughter wasn’t home.
Anyways,  we had a good visit and got
some great pictures of us all together 🙂
Oh yea,  the day before when we went
driving we stopped and had dinner at the
Governor’s Restaurant in Presque Isle 🙂
Friday on our drive we looked for a few
souvenirs for Jamye and Sami to take
home with them so we stopped off at a
few places in hopes of finding something
good for them.  They found a few things
they liked,  one which was many bottles
of Maple syrup hehehe.  Yep,  we had a
great time together,  but they had to be
heading home early Saturday morning.
I hated for them having to leave so soon,
but she had to be back at work Sunday.
So,  fortunately we have a lot of pictures
and memories from the visit.  Hopefully
they can com back again one day soon.
I’d love for us to be able to make a trip
to Texas,  but on top of health issues we
cannot afford it,  but who knows,  it may
happen one day.  LOL I believe I may of
walked a bit too much this passed week.
My legs are aching bad.  Oh well,  we had
a great time.  I didn’t do a lot of writing
last week,  but then I was busy.  I almost
started crying when Jayme and Sami were
driving away.  I will miss seeing them 🙁
Anyways,  onto the next topic.  Judy and
I celebrated our 19 year anniversary also
on Friday October 2nd and Jamye had
her 41 birthday on Sept 29th so we kind
of just bundled them up together into
one celebration.  We had planned to go
mini golfing,  but that got sort of rained
out,  so we just made do.  Other than
all of that,  Judy and I spent the earlier
part of last week getting ready for them
to get here.  We’ve been having a little
problem with mice and we’ve got mouse
traps set up here and there throughout
the house.  It seems the mice want to
come in out of the cold.  LOL Benny
and Rocky are giving them a run for
their money hehehe.  We had forgotten
to start putting the boys food dish up
on the table at night and that I’m sure
attracts them,  but I started last night
by putting it off of the floor in hopes
of discouraging the lil varmints LOL.
As long as it’s during the day,  the boys
are in here and the mice don’t dare go
near the food hehehe.  I’m hoping that
between the lack of food and the traps
the mice will soon be gone from here 🙂
It’s 50 F degrees right now at 4 PM and
the high for today is supposed to be 54.
Tomorrows high is supposed to be 60
so it’ll be a little warmer LOL.  I had
to turn the heater on for Jamye and
Sami in the living room because they
were getting cold at night.  Yep,  it’s
not quite the Texas weather they know
so well 🙂   Anyways,  God has kept His
mighty hands over us protecting us as
always and the many angels and spirits
have continued to watch over us.  We
most surely feel blessed.  Thank You
God for all that You do and all that
You will do.  AMEN.  Now,  I believe
it’s time for me to be reading back on
everything I’ve written here to see if
I can find 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 little
place of my recollection that I like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I
may of found a decent title about a
quarter of the way from the beginning
of my rambling and now after checking,
I see that it has not been used as of yet,
so used it shall be.  Here goes…

We Survived

We’ve each had trials
and will find more
time and again
sometimes as before.
They may look vague
the passing sights
that we survived
the wrongs and rights.
Look for the lessons,
look for the tools
within the journeys
we’re acting as fools.
Learning the hard way
what not to do
can often be what that
sticks with you.
So use what God gave
to be revived,
for it is through Him
that we survived.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and hopefully even a little of my
rambling entertained you hehehe.  That’s
about all I have for ya other than what I
tell you every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
but only 6 poems this week and 1 of em
is Jamye’s birthday poem and there is
1 Christmas poem as well.  Hey,  I was
busy.  I did though write 22 more haiku
for all of the haiku lovers out there LOL.
I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either or
both that you like.  Now I do believe it
is time to start my search for that hardly
elusive off switch,  but not before I wish
you a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Okey
dokey,  so where can that ornery switch
be trying to hide this time?  LOL getting
lazy are ya.  Just having a little camp out
on my cloth face mask huh.  You forgot
what day it was hehehe.  It’s Sunday 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

White Winged Tern

I’ve seen a bird
a familiar sight
found near water
always in flight.
It’s like a gull
seeking for fish
and other things
it finds delish.
It’s not common
to see it up here,
but ever so often
it might appear.
Found so scenic
these birds fly
time and again
to do or to die.
Sufficing to fill
a day’s concern
this is about a
white winged tern.

My Daughter

You’ve come far
as life went astray
learning from then
to see another day.
Years have passed
leaving a glance
life that may seem
as song and dance.
Ages of turnstiles
opened with views
giving us chances
to change the news.
Finding heartbeats
from near to afar
you my daughter
are my shining star.
I hope the years
bring time to attain
for you and I
much more to gain.
This day is so great
for now me and you
can share your day
with a better view.

Dreamer’s Train

White snowy tracks
with a train in mind
will wait every day
in a seasonal design.
It’s awaiting to hear
the chugalug sound
as a train continues
to gain more ground.
It blows its whistle
as a singer’s song
telling of its presence
moving on and on.
Christmas may come
as a clickety clack
as the train rolls on
the railroad track.
Dreams come to life
as a scenic destination
creating pathways of
a trains acceleration.
Becoming as a story
from northern Maine
as a scenic reflection
of a dreamer’s train.

Flow of Creation

Sights become alive
as a story unfolds
created with images
that a time beholds.
Moments reflections
may come into view
as a flow of creation
from old to anew.
You may sense time
as a flowing river
a time that displays
a sight as a giver.
Giving us the essence
of a hopeful flow
one that is peaceful
for time to bestow.
The seasons of style
are magnetic days
attracting the views
of magical phase.
An answer to prayer
a time to perceive
the flow of creation
for life to achieve.
Flowing like desire
with creative hue
life is like pictures
and hypnotic views.
Some are as dreams
filled with elation
that’s given by God
a flow of creation.

Waiting on events
to fall into place
might seem forever,
but only a waste.
Yet our perception
might only perceive
essence of autumn
as a colorful weave.
Woven as blessings
sewn into place
as a page to forever
God’s saving grace.
We might lose time
as the minutes pass
and then become
as shadows to cast.
 Seeming as a path
to another day
as a time and place
ones kneel to pray.
Woven are desires
of wondrous scenes
found written on
a tomb of dreams.
We may never see
the way we view
when crossing over
from old to anew.
Make use of today
in all you endeavor
the best you can,
for soon is forever.

Shades of Autumn

Within a moment
time might display
a passing of scenes
to yet another day.
Seconds grow life
as a scenic design
formed as a style
as a magical find.
Autumn becomes
as a window to see
a beautiful passage
that is so heavenly.
It brings into view
a seasonal stage
one that enlightens
the turn of a page.
Minutes uncover
time’s photograph
seconds portrayals
of future and past,
Opening a passage
to then thereunto
becoming as a page
with a better view.
We’ve all seen life
to change its mind
and become wind
to blow away time.
For with seasons
days can become
shades of autumn
a new day begun.

for Oct 3,  2020

Tomorrows memoirs
can be horrid reflections
as now passes on.

Minutes of a clock
might seem to go by quickly,
but be just seconds.

Directions we choose
can often seem confusing
if we cannot read.

Leaning on others
often creates disturbance
when leaning too much.

Lost in a tunnel
in search for a little light
you can find blessings.

Our basic instincts
can often get us through life,
but not without flaws.

Flowing like water
a river will often cease
when life is no more.

Tickling fancies
can often create problems
as ones expect more.

Looking to the west
watching the sun fade away
you might see some stars.

Life is confusion
while death also confuses
creating questions

Mind over matter
often loses direction
with matter of mind.

In summer’s doorway
holds many different views
in fractions of time.

Winds of desire
may blow of many breezes,
some of destruction

We are as actors
on a stage of creation
that each day designs.

Giving ones advice
needs be done understanding
you might not be right.

Someone’s universe
might not have room for your views,
so don’t force beliefs.

Thinking too deeply
ones can drown themselves in grief
over what that’s done.

When overworking
you might end up with nothing
if you do not rest.

Challenges of life
can be the size of mole hills
and seem as mountains.

Today has a plan
that might not include your wants,
so don’t be surprised.

Praying selfish prayers
can often create a wall
between you and God.

Holding onto things
can become anchors in life
that prevent your sails.
