One Tired Soldier


Hello my friends

I hope your weekend went well and all.  We
are now into the month of June and hoping
that it goes better that May LOL.  I’ve set
up an appointment to get our car inspected
Monday and hoping it passes without too
many things needed such as tires and other.
So,  Rocky got all of his shots Friday and
then we went to get Judy a new cell phone.
Her old one was many years old and many
of the apps had quit working on it.  So now
she has been learning how to use the new
phone.  It’s a cheap one or should I say as
cheap as we could get and afford.  But it
is up to date with apps now.  Her other
phone was an LG which they don’t make
anymore.  Next topic LOL.  I did lot of
mowing when we got home from town,
because I knew it was going to rain soon.
I got sprinkled on a little while mowing,
but I managed to get the bulk of it done.
I was one tired soldier after mowing the
yard.  I felt as though I had walked a
few miles,  which I may have being all
of the yard that I mowed LOL.  Our little
lawnmower is a 16 inch mower that takes
many passes to get it done.  As well as
a few battery charges.  It took all four
of the 40 volt ION batteries to get the
yard mowed,  but they did the trick 🙂
It’s supposed to start raining again by
Tuesday evening,  but that’s merely a
forecast/guess and it could change at
any moment 🙂  Rocky is lying in the
floor at the foot of Judy while she’s
doing her crocheting.  Judy went to
her sister’s house last night for some
girl time with her sisters while Rocky
and I sat here at home and I did some
poetry writing.  The weather has been
fairly nice,  as at the moment it is 60 F
degrees.  The high today was supposed
to be 66 and the high for tomorrow is
forecasted at 68,  but only God knows 🙂
I do not miss that Texas heat which as
I look at my weather program it’s 78 in
Greenville TX and 90 in Midlothian TX.
Talk about variations LOL.  Anyways,
as I said,  I do not miss the spring and
summer heat of Texas.  Of course I do
love the snow up here,  but even I after
a few months of it,  get tired of it LOL.
Though I am sure that any place you
live has its downfalls/dilemmas that we
must deal with as best that we can.  So
I can deal with the cold a lot better than
I can deal with the heat.  Even with the
temperature of 60,  I have the fan on,
because I am very hot natured.  So,  what
else is going on around this place other
than the same ole same ole LOL?  Well,
to be honest,  We’re not that exciting :).
We did though go and get ice cream at
the Houlton Farms Dairy Bar last week
I believe it was Wednesday.  Now I have
a curious question.  What idiot decided
to spell Wensday like the WEDNESDAY?
LOL English language has no problem
making words spelled one way and to be
pronounced another way…  Hooked on
Phonics didn’t have a chance hehehehe.
Anyways,  Judy and I are doing well and
enjoying being together as we face each
new day that comes our way.  She loves
my poetry and I read it to her every day
so she can help me to spot my typos 🙂
She loves how I combine my poetry into
the pictures creating art.  I’m her biggest
fan of her crocheting as well her writings.
Though she doesn’t write much anymore
or paint,  but I am still her fan and I love
all that she does.  God put us together as
He knew we would compliment each other
with our ways.  2 peas in a pod 🙂  Yes we
have our bad times,  but we look beyond
them.  God is always with us watching over
us as is also many angels and kindly spirits.
We feel blessed to have one another and to
have the connections that we have.  Thank
You Father God for never turning us away.
Please keep Your mighty hands covering
all of my family and friends.  We praise
Your Name.  AMEN and AMEN.  Now
I do believe it’s time for me to be reading
back over 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 new
poem and with that said,  it’s away I go
to that place of my recollection that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I
may have found a decent title just about
a quarter of the way from the beginning
of my rambling and now after checking
I see that it has not be used yet.  So used
it shall be.  Here goes…

One Tired Soldier

We might encounter
an army of life
filled with problems
filled with strife.
Yet Lord Jesus
is always there
to help you to find
a breath of air.
We each have things
we wish not to tell
times we may find
we’re an empty shell.
Facing struggles
with day after day
often forgetting
to kneel and pray.
Let God to help you
as life gets older
to not be alone
as one tired soldier.

Well there ya go.  Yes I know it’s not that
great of a poem,  but it’s what that came
to me at the moment.  Anyways,  I hope
you liked the poem and maybe even a lil
of my rambling :).  Judy is still learning
how to use her new Samsung Galaxy cell
phone.  It makes weird sounds that she’s
not used to hearing and is trying figure
out how to change them or disable them.
I know that she’ll figure it out.  She’s very
smart 🙂  Hey, she married me didn’t she 🙂
So that’s about all I’ve got for ya other
than what I tell you every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers,  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.  Now I do believe it is
time for me to begin 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.  Okie dokie,  so where can that silly
off switch be trying to hide this time???
Looking around the room in all of its
previous hiding spots and not seeing it.
Hmmm,  I think I see a little movement
from behind the Christmas Ferris wheel
sitting next to the telephone.  LOL are
ya trying to catch a ride.  I’m pretty
sure that the batteries are not charged.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Rocky
and spirits of Benny and Milo Pearce.

Distant Days

Memories glimmer
and shine in scenes
becoming as magic
that creates dreams.
Sights such as ships
passing in the night
we may see evening
as glimmers of light.
The distant minutes
found within time
become reflections
of a special design.
Scenes with stages
of waves thereunto
distant as seascapes
of the old and anew.
Time becomes alive
as a breathing day
forming its ripples
in an awesome way.
We might be ships
on an ocean voyage
to soon be together
as God takes charge.
While letting waves
enhance our view
we might then find
there’s love so true.
Oh so many travels
God’s given to gaze
are blessings of time
within distant days.

Time’s Photograph

Throughout life
we might unveil
mere photographs
of time’s detail.
It might be found
as only a view
a timeless scene
that God gave you.
Bringing to life
a certain style
time’s photograph
as a little smile.
Love enhanced
its very existence
with seasonal life
time’s consistence.
Creating a stage
of future and past
found within view
time’s photograph.

Within and Beyond

A simple drive
as a timeless song
becomes a venture
to a season’s dawn.
Sung as a moment
and felt as a breeze
within and beyond
the seasonal seas.
Driven as turnstiles
that miles display
lifetimes discover
a brand new day.
One that is worded
with a fragrant kiss
seasoned memories
of an unending list.
Scenic reflections
will live on and on
inside our dreams
within and beyond.

Walking Bridge Dreams

Searching for life
within a distant place
a moment’s time
may be a smiling face.
We might discover
 some pages as turned
walking bridge dreams
our times discerned.
Seeming as reflections
the minutes display
life becomes artwork
with day after day.
Living and breathing
as heartfelt streams
we might discover
walking bridge dreams.

Somewhere in Mind

All of the times
taken for granted
might be the times
heaven enchanted.
Many of the faces
we used to know
now are reflections
in time to and fro.
Seen as a dream
that once was true
somewhere in mind
that lived with you.
We may remember
a four legged friend
as a glorious time
that did transcend.
It brought a smile
to a saddened face
somewhere in mind
with loves embrace.
Watching moments
to pass us on by
as they are joined
with tears we cry.
Yet within spirit
the memories stay
beating with love
for a distant day.
These are the faces
reflected in time
found in a moment
somewhere in mind.

Winter’s Escape

Like flakes of snow
time falls away
creating moments
of a scenic array.
Landing becoming
a magical view
as winter’s escape
says hello to you.
It might be a sight
as a timeless place
to escape within
with a smiling face.
You may even find
a moment’s stage
set in the minutes
of a distant age.
As a road of time
displays its style
a winter’s escape
the times compile.
Snowflakes falling
might form a shape
as a seasonal quest
in winter’s escape.

Stride of Life

Country emotions
become much more
striding inside of
a life’s living door.
Swinging profusely
the door might seem
just like wintertime
soon to be spring.
There might be time
displaying a sight
as a horse of stride
within winter white.
Maybe even clouds
up above that flow
as a stride of life
with a wintery glow.
Blessings uniquely
exposed as a dream
giving the flavors
of winter’s cuisine.
We might envision
blades of a knife
slicing displaying
the stride of life.

Once Upon Spring

Now might be only
the passing design
awaiting changes
of a seasonal time.
Seen as reflections
prayerful is found
times we struggled
to just get around.
Once upon spring
scenes may appear
creating destinies
from a yesteryear.
Life is the seconds
as time moves on
once upon spring
as we sing along.
Sung as heartbeats
prayerful arrays
our life is a story
of wonderful ways.
Heavenly moments
to shout and sing
found as memories
once upon spring.

Stage of Time

Some only dream
of winter’s snow
while some others
only wish it to go.
Yet there’s beauty
in a winter dream
as a stage of time
in a magical scene.
See the pictures
as snowflakes fall
in a time so divine
so many recall.
Winter’s fragrance
becomes so alive
as a stage of time
on a scenic drive.
Find the flakes
in a winter white
and then dream on
of a magical sight.
A sight of beauty
a hopeful design
can live in you
as a stage of time.

Hills and Trees

Now might be seen
as just a memory
time on your mind
your heart can see.
It might be a place
within your mind
with hills and trees
an awesome find.
We might envision
an ocean of waves
as just a moment
in passed displays.
A dream or two
of a distant past
might now breathe
a shadowy cast.
As a breath of time
becomes your view
scenes might find
they live in you.
The moments pass
leaving memories
within the times
as hills and trees.

for Jun 4,  2022

Thinking too deeply
can lead you into problems
that were never there.

Beyond what we see
is a microscopic world
that goes unnoticed.

Fishing for true love
you might catch a few glimpses
of what that is not.

Walking a straight line
does not mean you will not fail,
for you might hit holes.

Traveling through life
we might discover lessons
we wished not to learn.

Checking ones motives
does not always show the facts,
for they might be lies.

Time is a doorway
that often have surprises
you did not expect.

Pages of a book
that have no words upon them
might await our words.

The answers in life
are not always definite,
for they might be changed.

Looking out windows
we might see the wind blowing
leaves of life away.

Seeking for wisdom
you might find some ignorance
in transformation.

The dreams that we have
might influence destinations
that lead to nowhere.

 Focusing on things
and not what created them
can lead ones astray.

Many only seek
for the fish in a barrel
and not that of time.

Texting a story
needs ones to know how to read
or it is senseless.

Living in the now
without preparing yourself
might not end so well.

Waves of emotion
often flow in the moments
that don’t continue.

Sought after dream worlds
can become as our nightmares
when we awaken.

Trivial thinking
can prevent many problems,
but can cause some more.

Years that pass us by
leave shadows within themselves
filled with love and hate.

Yesterdays anger
might be today’s dynamite
if it’s not released.

Desires of the heart
can often become sadness
while wants are confused.
