Taking Rides


Hello my friends

It’s been cooling off with each passing
day.  It’s supposed to be in the mid 70’s
forecasted for most of the next few weeks
and I have no problem with that,  but it
seems our Monday’s forecast is for a high
of 67 F 🙂  That works for me as well too.
Yep,  this is the kind of summer temps I
can handle,  although we do miss being
able to drive down to Port Aransas when
we got the time.  It’s many miles away
now.  Maybe one day we will make a trip
to Texas again,  if we are able and can
afford it.  It’s 73 right now at our home
and it’s 5:14 PM.  Not bad.  We’ve got
our windows opened to let in some fresh
air.  We’re making plans on taking us a
little picture taking drive in the next few
days.  We will be taking more drives as
we decide where to go.  I can’t wait.  I
love to go on picture taking rides.  being
our drives to and from town repeat the
pictures.  So,  it’ll be nice to get a few
new pictures to use for my poetry. I do
though need to start working on getting
more of my work published.  I’ll try my
best to kick myself in the butt and get
it done one day hopefully soon.  Judy is
still busy crocheting and searching the
internet to find more things to crochet.
Yep,  she’s downloading patterns for
crocheting and watching a few Youtube
videos.  Living up here has made me to
change many of my ways,  such as my
ability to see family or friends.  I am
often very depressed because of that,
but there’s nothing I can do,  so I try
my best to make do.  I guess that sort
of explains why I do so many poetry
pictures hehehe.  I plan on doing  a few
music videos this week as well as seeing
about attaching the plant hangers to
the outside of our porch.  I have not
been getting around so well lately,  but
I’m doing a little better now.  It sucks
when your mind is still wide eyed and
bushy tailed,  but your body is going
gray and arthritic.  LOL Anyways,  life
goes on until it lands on a new path to
travel,  either up or down,  hopefully
prayerfully up :).  Yep,  My old body’s
about done.  My mind and brain are
still very alert,  but they cannot fool my
body into believing it is young again 🙂
Oh yea,  did anybody notice that July
is gone.  Where in the heck did it go?
It seems Judy and I were sitting talking
and Judy noticed her calendar and said
it’s not July anymore,  and she changed
it to August.  I’ll be 65 August 31 and
nobody asked me if I wanted to change
age LOL.  My mind says try to convince
my body that it’s 30 again,  but my body
is not falling for it again hehehehe.  The
last time I tried that I ended up many
miles away thinking that a 7 mile walk
wouldn’t hurt me hahaha.  Yea right 🙂
My legs nearly never forgave me LOL.
My old body isn’t falling for that again.
Well,  it’s 73 degrees now at 6:42 PM
and we can hear some birds chirping
outside of our window.  It’s bright and
sunny outside.  A lovely day.  God’s still
watching over us.  Even though we have
problems time to time,  we manage to
make it and grow.  God has sent many
angels to watch over us.  We also have
many sweet spirits that keep tabs on us
from day to day.  Yep,  God is still great.
He does for us what we are unable to do,
or allows what He knows that we need
in our life to help us to grow.  So now I
reckon it’s time for me to read back on
all that 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 brand new poem
and so it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I seem to always call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may of
found a fairly decent title about a 3rd of
the way from the beginning of my ongoing
rambling and now after checking,  I see
that it has not been used yet,  so used it
shall be.  Here goes…

Taking Rides

Roads we travel
may have times
seen as people
with crazy minds.
Yet they may be
but only driven
on the lifestyle
they were given.
It takes time
to change a path
then to there
as shadows cast.
Learn to look
and see the view
what that’s false,
what that’s true.
Lose the judgment
a time applies
and find blessings
when taking rides.

I know the poem isn’t that great,  but it’s
the best I could do quickly with that title.
I hope you liked the poem and possibly
even a bit of my rambling hehehe.  Judy’s
sister Barbara is doing OK considering the
situation.  Please keep her in your prayers.
Well,  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.
Yep,  10 more poems and 1 of them is a
Christmas poem.  I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out there.
I hope you are able to find 1 or 2 of either
or both that you like.  Now I believe it is
time for me to begin my search for that
ornery off switch,   but not before I wish
you a wonderful blessings filled week and
that you find many smiles.  Now,  where
can that silly off switch be trying to hide
this time?  Hmm,  looking on my desk
and looking under it.  Now looking beside
it,  LOL  OK,  I see ya you silly thing LOL.
Trying to hide among my many battery
chargers would of worked if you were not
so fidgety.  You made my charger for my
hearing aid to sort of bounce and catch
my attention.   Try to learn to stay still 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Just Saying Hello

Many that pass us
with a single glance
might have a story
their eyes enhance.
Yet oh so often
we only see smiles
maybe just phony
carried for miles.
You may see some
with wagging tails
just saying hello
as love prevails.
They may look like
a certain song
sung of a moment
as time moves on.
They might have
a passionate glow
truly wanting to
just say hello.

Darkening Clouds

A sky of emotion
flows as a breeze
creating pathways
our time perceives.
When looking up
you may see gray
darkening clouds
in a magical way.
Rain may begin
as time moves on
in clouds of gray
that sing a song.
Singing of seasons
floating in the sky
darkening clouds
that may pass by.
They give us rain
or just but a view
seen from windows
with a cloudy hue.
Time might display
what life endows
rain and rainbows
darkening clouds.

Just a Moose

Through our life
we might not see
what that’s truly
standing so free.
We might only
see such a time
that lives within
our daily mind.
So often things
may just confuse
whether a win,
whether a lose.
We might need
to clear our eyes
and see the truth
and not just lies.
So many times
we might deduce
that its troubles,
but just a moose.

Walking Up

Living for moments
might become when
time’s walking up
with now and again.
You may remember
and you might recall
a time and a place
that stands out tall.
Maybe of a person
or four legged friend
within a memory
that times transcend.
You might even see
a ghost of a day
that’s illuminating
a wondrous array.
It might be a sound
or picture of a view
within a memory
that thrives so true.
It might be a friend
a beating heart
now a loving spirit
that’s never apart.
Living as memories
within a photograph
life continues on
with future and past.
Let love to continue
as water from a cup
even in a picture
of time walking up.

Glancing Rails

Timeless travel
trains might move
leaving patterns
railways groove.
Forming windows
within the mind
the glancing rails
may then unwind.
Creating pictures
as a photograph
remembered time
as shadows cast.
Just like a glance
a sudden view
the rails soon say
how do you do.
They may become
a timeless door
for you and me
to surely explore.
Then as a blessing
it tells of tales
of a train of time
on glancing rails.

Snow Begins

Standing so still
as snow falls down
the winter breeze
blows snow around.
Become as scenes
pictures to take
as the snow begins
with winter awake.
Many may smile
and enjoy the view
while some others
will wish to undo.
Yet it is a season
that some embrace
one of a moment
with a smiling face.
Enjoy the weather
with all it may be
as time comes alive
with all you see.
You may be stood
in winter’s winds
the moment in time
the snow begins.

Seeking To Arrive

Our daily journeys
might just become
a pathway in time
as second to none.
Seeking a pleasure
or moment’s gain
we might discover
a pathway of pain.
Yet in our travels
we may just find
scenes of splendor
within wintertime.
There may be snow
of Christmas array
seen on the roads
in a joyous display.
Winter’s perfection
on a scenic drive
Christmas awakens
seeking to arrive.

Mornings Come

Inside a moment
might live a sky
as oceans of time
a sunshine reply.
There may be eyes
of a distant array
looking right back
in a timeless way.
Eyes of a dream
might be a glare
as mornings come
in awesome flair
Becoming alive
as waves will roll
when the sun rises
to reach its goal.
Time is a turnstile
creating glimmers
scenes as dreams
a moment enters.
Find the blessings
of a season’s sun
when you perceive
mornings come.

Walking Into Waves

So many emotions
come from a time
found within waves
of an angry mind.
Times of confusion
might become seen
creating nightmares
within life’s dreams.
Walking into waves
might unleash pain
seasons of scenes
you should abstain.
Watch your footing
within your stride
and don’t let anger
to live deep inside.
Loosen your hold
on anger and hate
and find peaceful
that you can relate.
Open the portal
to better displays
than seeking pain
walking into waves.

Tracks of Memories

Living as echoes
our memories flow
often as wintertime
found in the snow.
Tracks of windows
that we see through
might be illusions
of then thereunto.
They may be tracks
of a distant time
laid down one day
inside of our mind.
Maybe with a view
of a distant sky
tracks of memories
the minutes apply.
Seconds tick on
from night to day
as many memories
just fade away
Leaving only time
as a winter freeze
displaying scenes
tracks of memories.

for July 31,  2021

Various choices
create various pathways
that we need to take.

Time is a journey
found with many illusions
that may become real.

Shadows of ourselves
are found within the heartbeats
of ones that follow.

Traveling through life
you might discover some doors
that need left alone.

Today’s memories
in our yesterdays visions
might be regretful.

Ungrateful people
will come into our pathways
and leave us with stains.

The sun shines brightly
even when we cannot see it,
so have faith in life.

Treading on eggshells
you might become worrisome,
but some need cracking.

Pages of a journal
might be filled full of nightmares
that turned into dreams.

Storming towards clouds
you might find many troubles
hidden within them.

Limits on doorways
are often for a reason
as they’re meant for times.

Harboring anger
in the years that pass us by,
you might find ulcers.

Windows in doorways
might allow a view within
to see what is there.

Stages of our lives
may begin really tiny,
but grow to be large.

Looking for a time
to become what it is not
can form misery.

Traveling mindsets
can often become confused
with a crooked trail.

Legends we hear of
might not be reality,
but they may teach us.

Longing for a path
that’s not meant for you to take
can slow down your growth.

Grading on the curve
we might often let things slide
because we like them.

Time becomes deadends
when we repeat our mistakes
trying to find change.

Tomorrow becomes now
when yesterday becomes then
and they both collide.

Watching the starlight
the sky might seem to have eyes
looking back at you.
