Shadows of Memories


Hello my friends

I hope yall are staying safe and well.
We’re still hanging in there as summer
runs its last course.  It’s 78 F degrees
right now at 6:30 PM.  It’s a stay near
the air conditioner day.  I was thinking
of doing a little mowing,  but I cannot
handle the heat.  Maybe later today :),
but no promises LOL.   The grass isn’t
that bad in needing to be mowed YET.
I sharpened the lawnmower blades the
other day and it doesn’t run the battery
down so quickly as it did before to mow
through the high grass.  I hung Judy’s
birdhouse up the other day.  I screwed
it to the outside of the porch.  Now our
next project is to get her birdbath done
and find a place to sit it,  so it doesn’t
blow away.  Anyways,  we’ll get R done.
I think I’m gonna stop here and go mow
a little bit and finish this later.  See ya.
Rrrrrrrrrrrrr Rrrrrrrrrrrrr Rrrrrrrrrrrr
Rrrrrrrrrrrrr Rrrrrrrrrrrrr Rrrrrrrrrrrr
Ok I mowed a quite bit more than that,
but there ya go hehehe.   I was sweating
like a dog,   literally.  My hands/paws
were sweating.   So now that the mowing
is done,  I can focus on maybe doing a
little writing.  Judy’s behind me at her
desk crocheting.  She seems to like to do
that.  I hope she switches up soon and
does some more paintings.  I love to use
her artwork for poetry pictures. Oh yea,
I finally got busy and got 2 (13 and 14)
more books published.  I am not doing
the Kindle anymore,  just the 8.5″ x 11″
paperback.  I have unpublished all of
the Kindle,  but it may take a month or
so to be removed from Amazon.  I was
not too crazy about doing them in the
Kindle version being they don’t look
as well as they do in the books.  The
books may cost more,  but they’re well
worth it.  I think too many people have
lost the world of reading a good book
or to just get lost in the pages as stories
unfold.  My poetry tells stories and has
lessons within them.  Things I learned
as I went on many journeys through
some often rocky roads that in the end
led to paths needing crossing or turning
back.  Yep,  some of the pathways that
we come across are not meant for us,
but others that you know and that is
often where we may lose track of them.
I have had many good things to come
in my life of which I wish I could bring
back just for a moment,  but they are
only shadows of memories.  I was lucky
to have had the people in my life that I
had as I’m lucky to have the ones that
I have today.  God has put some truly
wonderful people in my life and a few
that I am guessing were meant to teach
me lessons.  Judy and I have had a good
weekend and the passed week wasn’t too
bad either 🙂  I believe Judy is taking her
sister Barb down to Bangor Tuesday for
her check up.  Barb is doing as well as
can be expected.  Please continue with
your prayers for her.   Ok so I think it’s
time for me to be reading back over 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 :).
So,  it’s away I go,  to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call
have found me a decent title just about
a 3rd of the way back in my rambling
and now after checking,  I see that it’s
not been used yet,  so used it shall be.
Here goes…

Shadows of Memories

Yesterday’s doorways
are now just memoirs
scenes within scenes
as lessons and scars.
Time  is a foothill
that may become high
shadows of memories
that touch the sky.
Seamless perception
connects many sights
as moments expose
our days and nights.
We might wonder
why things are done
as troubles arrive
in a rising sun.
Oceans of rhythms
become as waves
within the shadows
now which we gaze.
Look for the lessons
in the deepest of seas
found in your mind
shadows of memories.

There ya go.   I hope you liked my poem
and maybe even a little of my rambling 🙂
I can’t think of much else to tell you,  so
I reckon I need to tell you what I tell you
nearly every week and that is, I wrote a
few more poems and haiku.  Yeppers, 10
more poems with 1 Christmas poem in
the mix.  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 do believe it’s near the
time for me to start my search for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Okey dokey so where can that silly
off switch be trying to hide this time??
LOL now that’s rather interesting.  I’ve
never seen a nose spray bottle dance 🙂
Are ya waltzing with it hehehe?  Oh you
say you’re doing the Texas 2 step huh.
Learn to dance dance on other days.
You were supposed to be hiding, silly.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Life and Fields

Past to present
meets tomorrow
often with fields
we wish to borrow.
Grasses of green
may seem so fine,
but not have all
you wish to dine.
There may be life
of a different view
past to present
that’s not for you.
A sky of blue
and clouds amidst
might show signs
that do coexist.
A sight of beauty,
a sight of gold,
a story,  a venture
to then behold.
So many sights
that time reveals
might only be
of life and fields.

Rainbow of Choice

Colors of a dream
can form in the mind
as rainbows create
a real awesome design.
Formed from a page
of a stage’s history
a rainbow of choice
can be a sight to see.
It’s life in the makings
choices to choose
scenes as our dreams
that time can infuse.
God given blessings
become as a pathway
written within time
of a mind’s rainy day.
The problems of sorts
may become as a tool
as a rainbow of choice
gives essence of fuel.
Listen to the sight
as it speaks its voice
colors of a rhythm
a rainbow of choice.

Bridge of Minds

Living for a future
and not the time
can become empty
as shells of design.
Bridges to moments
might not display
all that’s within
a time’s future day.
Our minds may lose
the footing in style
as we cross bridges
to a future mile.
So often it’s better
to look at a sight
and bridge together
what truly is right.
Seeing what is best
in a moment of life
all that you learned
as passing of strife.
Sometimes a path
can be what defines
the lessons of life on
a bridge of minds.

Summer Unites

Spring comes alive
with all that will be
as summer continues
sights that we see.
The minutes passing
become as a stage
formed by uniting
the age unto age.
Spring’s a memory
living in the times
colors in unison
to fill up our minds.
God gives us beauty
we often don’t see
sights such a colors
so pretty and free.
Yet many people
look on with a frown
as they continue
to just walk around.
Look for the beauty
in God’s given sights
within springtime
as summer unites.

Flowers Designs

Written as beauty
seen as a time
we are the flowers
that so many find.
Yet our beauty
might be degraded
now only showing
a little bit faded.
Time plays a part
in how we bloom
as flowers designs
times come attune.
Scenes that we see
may only be weeds
seeded from many
times dirty deeds.
Take time to find
the truthful details
as flowers designs
of life’s living bells.
Open your heart
to magic of minds
found in a moment
of flowers designs.

Within Passion

Time continues on
as a ticking clock
seasons memories
may seem to talk.
Telling of the tales
of a passing day
as within passion
and a scenic array.
Time might gather
to become sights
seasons of scenes
as days and nights.
For within passion
there may become
a hidden passage
with a rising sun.
You might awaken
your inner eyes
and see the sights
of true blue skies.
You might even
discover a fashion
as magical scenes
within passion.

Timeless Pathways

Country perceptions
create what’s perceived
that of the doorways
thoughts had believed.
Forming a journey
a pathway through eyes
scenes that become as
a sudden surprise.
A road might enlighten
another quick view
that becomes alive
and living within you.
It might be a moment
as a passing scene
with timeless pathways
living as dreams.
Look deeper in time
as the roads appear
and find a memory
of a distant year.
Let it to blossom
and become your gaze
as you travel onto
timeless pathways.

Moments Unite

Time is as a river
a moment of flow
seen as a doorway
as pathways to go.
A story of scenes
that seconds form
uniting rhythms
a time can adorn.
It’s as a pathway
written in the days
as moments unite
in so many ways.
Maybe as a road
that ones travel
or just a journey
as tires on gravel.
Time can be funny
as it finds a smile
creating a window
of a certain style.
Heartbeats begin
with such a sight
seen as dreams
as moments unite.

Snowy Travels

I now remember
times that bestow
so many journeys
pictures of snow.
Travels of style
with scenes inlaid
as snowy echoes
seasons portrayed.
Snowflakes upon
as they end flight
textured as winter
a road of white.
It’s just a journey
a burning ember
of snowy travels
within December.
A Christmas mile
living in dreams
as snowy travels
wonderful scenes.
It’s just a memoir
written in rhyme
a time and place
within my mind.
Living in pictures
how time unravels
wintertime’s sights
of snowy travels.

May Be Summer

It might be spring
that comes in view
when the winter’s
done all it’ll do.
It might seem like
a timeless illusion
or may be summer
within confusion.
The scenes explode
and create a style
opening windows
that times compile.
Just like a phase
of a flowers bloom
it may be summer
that comes attune.
Find the blessings
that colors unite
within the seasons
and birds in flight.
You might find life
that of a drummer
it might be spring
or may be summer.

for Aug 21,  2021

Living in the now
can help the yesterdays leave
and create changes.

Too much solitude
can create an emptiness
that might destroy you.

Then is a wording
that many use to forget
and not use lessons.

Scenes that we may see
might have many hidden views
that we should strive for.

Glancing back in time
we might see many mistakes
that somehow worked out.

Timid is the wolf
that strolls into a moment
that they lied about.

The minutes that pass
may leave shadows of themselves
that others can see.

Thinking too deeply
you might over think a path
and miss the blessings.

Heaven is alive
with many we remember
and will see again.

Hearing the thunder
of a storm that’s nearing
says look for the rain.

Trials we’ve been through
might be the needed lessons
we’ll need later on.

Finding a true friend
can be the best thing in life
that will help you live.

Connecting doorways
not meant to be connected
can cause you trouble.

Here and thereafter
there might be some reflections
that you do not like.

Heartbeats of loved ones
are found beating in our life
as theirs passes on.

Soon can be too soon
as life’s opportunities
might be out of sync.

When walking alone
you are not truly alone
for God is with you.

Today gives chances
that yesterday did not see,
so use them wisely.

Arrogant people
may one day see reflections
of their wrongful ways.

Challenging a heart
to beat faster than it can
might have sad endings.

Travels of the mind
can take us on a journey
when bodies cannot.

Breathing in a breath
of a morning’s aroma
can give you a smile.
