Needs Are Met


Hello my friends

I hope you had a great weekend.  It was yet
another slow weekend for us.  Not much of
a ball game LOL.  Not here 🙂  Our home is
game show titled Crocheting Poetry hehehe.
Yeppers,  Judy has been busy crocheting more
and more.  She finished with her basket that
she crocheted to hold her extra bit of yarn and
she has done a few shawls.  She has quite the
collection of things she has made.  Not me :),
I’m still doing my thing,  writing poetry and
designing/creating poetry pictures.  I have yet
to of published anymore,   being I am waiting
for the 12 books I already have published to
start selling.  Anyways,  I’ll continue writing,
being that’s what I do and I enjoy creating
poetry pictures.  It keeps me busy.  At the
moment,  it is raining and thunder is roaring
telling the tales of its life.  Yeppers,  I haven’t
seen any lightning  as of yet,  but I’ve heard
the thunder,  which means the lightning is
somewhere around,  but I am unable to look
out the window and write at the same time 🙂
I’m saving every line that I write just in case
the electricity is knocked out LOL.   I don’t
want to have to rewrite everything,  if ya know
what I mean hehehe.  I was thinking about
doing a little mowing Monday,  but it seems
I may have to wait till Wednesday or even
Thursday.  It’s supposed to rain Monday
and Tuesday.  Not much,  but rain is rain 🙂
and it’s not good to mow wet grass.   WOW,
now that was some thunder roar.  That was
loud.  I felt it in my feet.  I’m still expecting
the electricity to go out any time hehehehe.
The CDC up here is moving that those that
have been vaccinated are no longer required
to wear mask come the end of the month,
but Judy and I will continue to be safe and
wear ours when we go shopping or whatnot.
We figure it’s not that much of a big deal
for us to wear them to the store and other
places.  Better safe than sorry.  Anyways
next topic.   I bought me a one foot long
LED light for under my desk to help me to
be able to see my keyboards that plugs in.
The light has a dimmer on it that is done
by just touching it.  I love it.  I had been
using a battery LED lamp that I had to keep
changing the batteries in LOL.  Benny and
Rocky are doing well.  Benny is back to his
old self since we began giving him his insulin
shots or more to the point,  Judy giving him,
being,   I don’t do shots LOL.  I’m always
afraid I’ll goof up and I don’t want to hurt
or kill the little guy.  So Judy does all of the
needle stuff being she’s diabetic and has to
give herself shots.  Though I do know how,
but I prefer not to have to do that hehehe.
We’re a strange bunch,  but we fit together
like a puzzle 🙂  LOL OK so a few pieces
might be a little out of whack,  but that’s
how it is in any relationship.  It’s learning
how to use the differences as a tool to make
life better.  We’ve combined our skills to
do many things.  God performed a magic
feat when He put Judy and I together 🙂
I can still hear my dad’s voice saying Bill
there is someone out there that God has
waiting to become part of your life.  I just
wish he would of told me that she might
live 2100 miles away LOL.  No matter 🙂
we found one another and here we are
soon to be celebrating 20 years together
this coming October 2 🙂  Yes it’s still a
few months away,  but the day of our very
first emails was April 1 2001.  That was
when the ball began rolling so to say 🙂
It’s been a real experience.  Judy got to
see dolphins in the ocean for the first
time in her life and I got a chance to see
many feet of snow,  but not for the first,
but the first time to live through it LOL.
I’ve grown quite accustomed to the snow
and now prefer it to the heat of summer.
I do like the summers up here a whole
lot more than the summers in Texas 🙂
We don’t have the triple digit heat waves
that Texas has.  Of course we have a few
days in the 90’s but on those days I stay
inside near our portable air conditioner.
I know I hurt all of the time,  but I feel
blessed to have Judy in my life.  We enjoy
much of the same things thankfully.  We
do have our bad times,  but they are far
outweighed by the good times.  God has
been good to us.  He makes sure that we
have all that we need.  Surely not all that
we want,  but our needs are met.  He has
kept His mighty hands over us protecting
us from the evils that could destroy us.
Also we know that there are many angels
and friendly spirits watching over us and
guiding us.  Thank You God for all that
You have done for us and surely all that
You will do.  AMEN.  Now,  I think it’s
time for me to be reading back on 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,
off I go to that place of my recollections
that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I found a fairly decent title just a
few lines back and now after checking
I see that it has not been used as of yet,
so used it shall be today.   Here goes…

Needs Are Met

Within without
we might despair
wanted wishes
without a prayer.
So many directions
become a glance
as needs are met
with song and dance.
Sung as a blessing
sung as a song
what that happened
and helped us along.
Time is a window
a doorway too
where needs are met
as we pass through.
Leaving a shadow
of then and there
when needs are met
answers to prayer.
Time comes alive
we cannot forget
the lessons learned
as needs are met.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem and
maybe even a little of my rambling.  My old
mind tends to drift time to time hehehe.  Yep,
but at least I stay on track most of the time 🙂
Anyways,  I think I have told you all there is
to tell other than what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems and 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 silly 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,  where
can that ornery off switch be trying to hide
this time LOL?  Oh I see,  this time you’re
claiming to be exhausted from hiding huh.
Are you kidding me?   You barely ever hide
and now I see you just sitting on top of my
aspirin bottle just staring at me flipping
your switch on and and off LOL.  SILLY.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Cherished Emotions

The clouds of desire
can fill up the skies
and become dreams
we see with our eyes.
Seeming as illusions
the clouds overhead
display many things
as many words said.
Spoken as clouds
forming displaying
cherished emotions
the time’s conveying.
Creating portraits
of things we recall
floating up above
and standing so tall.
Maybe in a skyline
with scenic notions
the clouds may form
cherished emotions.

Beneath The Rocks

When we are walking
we might expose
the rocks of troubles
that hide a rose.
You might even find
a moment or two
beneath the rocks
that walks with you.
It might tag along
on your journeys way
unfolding moments
that seem a bit gray.
Beneath all the rocks
you might find peace
needing be displayed
as moments release.
There’s many rocks
that may hold scenes
written as turnstiles
found in our dreams.
Yet many moments
of past day walks
hold to the memories
beneath the rocks.

Journey’s Sky

Blue sky of splendor
the minutes procure
become the essence
of a scenic allure.
Found as a dreamer
so many look above
to see what is there
in a sky full of love.
Seeming like seasons
as clouds drift away
a sky full of clouds
is a wonderful day.
It’s as a dreamworld
with a taste of light
as a journey’s sky
is day unto night.
Creating a landscape
in a skyline of blue
it becomes pictures
of an old and anew.
Scenes within scenes
as a magical world
unveil the pictures
as life is unfurled.
Becoming a window
to a time to embrace
as a painted picture
of a scenic place.
A dreamer may see
many scenes fly by
as living heartbeats
in a journey’s sky.

Colors of Dreams

Leaves as artwork
create many times
as colors of dreams
inside our minds.
Creating a potion
that pours as gold
with autumn colors
and stories of old.
Enhanced memoirs
in scenic displays
as colors of dreams
in so many ways.
You might see life
of a flavorful sight
transposed in time
an autumn delight.
The leaves may form
the essence of style
which that creates
a memorable smile.
Look with your eyes,
see with your heart
the colors of dreams
as a work of art.

Ocean of Breath

Morning’s arrival
breathes in deep
a breath of waves
for time to keep.
Filling the crevices
with watery ways
words of moments
within the days.
Perplexing minds
as waves roll in
an ocean of breath
blows in the wind.
So take in the view
that seconds instill
and breathe deeply
with lungs to fill.
Search the waves
of timeless tales
an ocean of breath
within the swells
Find your path
of more or less
as you awaken to
an ocean of breath.

Journey Across

Footsteps on walkways
on bridges of desire
may often be journeys
that might soon expire.
The pathways of life
may hold many scenes
as water beneath them
of underground springs.
Seeming a dreamworld
that time might display
like a journey across
to yet another day.
There may be buildings
with clouds up above
formed from a  moment
and filled full of love.
It may seem as shadows
this sight that you see,
but be as a doorway
with heart as the key.
Lessons are remembered
each gain and each loss
as we walk onwards
on the journey across.

Dreams Begin

Beginnings of time
formed on our face
might surely find
a memorized place.
As a taste of honey
or a dreamer’s hue
more than money
such a magical view.
You might even see
within hearts desire
a place in history
as a passionate fire.
Time that’s passed
and left just a gaze
shadows that cast
the so distant days.
Scenes still living
of a time and again
a heartbeat is giving
as our dreams begin.

Enhanced Visions

Leaves on the trees
create perceptions
a little enhanced
timeless directions.
Trails that become
a seasonal doorway
with our memories
of a distant array.
Enhanced visions
become as a place
or moment in time
that you embrace.
Look even deeper
see what’s bestowed
on a leaf filled path
or old country road.
Find the directions
that you wish to ride
or walk on smiling
with peaceful stride.
Lose all your anger
in the midst of time
with enhanced visions
within your mind.

Moonlit Desires

Nighttime clouds
might float on by
and let the moon
to shine in the sky.
Glimmers of hope
and that of peace
as moonlit desires
give their release.
Becoming dreams
and nightmares too
the moonlit desires
may thrive in you.
There may be stars
well hidden above
as moonlit desires
filled full of love.
You might see life’s
rekindled scenes
that come so alive
as cosmic dreams.
Look even deeper,
see what transpires
formed within time
as moonlit desires.

Living Mirror

Reflections reflected
become as a glance
of past and present
a living romance.
Dancing as desires
reflected in our eyes
are as living mirrors
clouds in the skies.
Scents we remember
that time may expose
as the ripples of life
that smell like a rose.
Life’s mirrors reflect
the things we recall
maybe of summer
or maybe of fall.
Distilled emotions
create different views
as our perceptions
are choices to choose.
Forming the artwork
of time seen clearer
this is a memory
in a living mirror.

Through many echoes
you might hear yourself speaking
all that you regret.

Turbulent waters
may have peace deep within them
hidden from your view.

Beyond our worries
we might find peace in a flame
that’s burning brightly.

Time is the keeper
of so many memories
we’re wanting forgotten.

Trails that we journey
may often hold our heartbeat
within the footsteps.

A new day will start
even if it look’s bad now,
for change makes better.

The calming of seas
can make ones forget the waves
and end up drowning.

Summer’s blades of grass
become obstacles of life
with some dull lawn mower blades.

Troubles of the past
can become lessons in life
if we don’t give up.

Times might seem stupid
when seen with unweathered minds,
but the past teaches.

Portions of heartache
might exist in our actions
of all that we caused.

A listing turnstile
may one day fill with water
as it tips over.

Flavors of a food
can often become pungent
as time has its way.

Living in the past
can cause you to drown in tears
that today could dry.

Heat of a moment
can inflame a bad mistake
that needed put out.

The trains we ride on
in our imagination
may one day derail.

Patterns of a bridge
might seem structurally sound,
but be very weak.

Seeking for true love
you may also find liars
that are playing games.

Faith moves us forward
while doubting will hold us back,
so have faith in God.

Hands held together
are stronger than all alone,
so find some true friends.

Minutes that pass us
can often become shadows
of our yesterdays.

Knowing right from wrong
gives us choices we can choose
that can be better.
