Far Away


Hello my friends

Well today is a beautiful day as was Saturday.
Yesterday we burned the boxes that we had on
our porch in our burn barrel.  So glad to be rid
of them.  They were taking up a lot of space on
the porch.  Now if Judy and I can manage to
get my new grinder stand put together,  I’ll put
it out there with the grinder atop of it.  I need
Judy to help me put the stand together being
that the instructions suck and I will need her
eyes as well as her extra hands to help assemble
that thing LOL.  I’m not too proud to ask for
help when I need it.  I see many guys that are
afraid to ask for help thinking it makes them
look less manly.  LOL nope it only makes you
look like a numskull if you don’t ask for help
and you continue then to just mess it up or say
(well,  it just cannot be done).  Judy and I help
one another when we see that we need help and
or ask for help.  Egos can destroy a marriage as
well as a friendship.  We went and got us some
shakes from McDonald’s last Tuesday and then
Friday when we got paid,  we went and paid the
bills and then stopped off at the grocery store
and Walmart to do a little grocery shopping.
Then we stopped once again at McDonald’s to
get some burgers for dinner so we didn’t have
to cook.  Over the weekend we could slightly
hear fireworks in the distance,  but they were
real far away and very faint and that’s how
we like it.  Neither of us likes fireworks and
prefer the peace and quiet.  We never got in
the mood to try out the drone,  but we are
now talking about sitting at the benches in
front of our house and just practicing with
it sometime this week.  It’s supposed to be
a very nice week weather wise.  Yeppers,  in
the mid 70’s all week long.  Yep,  we love it.
It’s a lot better than those 100 degree temps
that are in Texas.  If it got that hot,  I would
not be able to do anything outside or end up
in the ER due to a stroke.  I am hot natured
in the worst way and have even been known
to come in sweating profusely after I have
been outside snow blowing in temps of 20 F
and thereabouts LOL.  Anyways,  I will do
a little mowing this week.  I got out and did
a little weed eating yesterday.  Rocky does
not like to go to the bathroom in tall grass.
He doesn’t mind snow as long as he can get
through it hehehe.  Though there are many
times I will have to go out and clear a path
for him,  because it’s too deep,  but that’s
not a big problem with our snow blowers.
Life up here in Maine is quite different than
it is in Texas and thereabouts.  There are
many that can not handle the winters that
we have,  but I prefer them to the heat of
the Texas summers along with the fact that
our summers are not near the heat ratio of
Texas.  So,  I think I’ll stick it out up here.
Judy’s getting ready to start back painting
again soon as soon as her drop cloth that
she ordered gets here to keep the paint off
of her table and whatnot 🙂   I think she’s
ready to give crocheting a break for a bit 🙂
I’ll be glad to have a few more paintings
of hers to use for poetry pictures 🙂  She’s
a really good artist.  Judy and I hope that
you have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July.
We’re just enjoying the peace and quiet 🙂
God is still watching over us as are many
angels and kindly spirits.  We definitely
feel blessed.  We do have our fair share of
problems and struggles,  but all in all we
make it one day at a time.  God is always
with us and we’re very thankful for that.
Thank You Father God for never wavering
in your ways.  We love You greatly and
praise your name.  AMEN.  Now it’s time
for me to be reading back through 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 off
I go,  to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may have found me a decent title
near the center of my rambling and now
after checking,  I see that it has not been
used yet,  so used it shall be.  Here goes…

Far Away

Timeless moments
now might appear
as seconds reflected
of a distant year.
Seeming far away
yet close at hand,
but all that we see
isn’t that grand.
For it’s perception
that contours sight
while the far away
may surely excite.
Look for the signs
of beautiful scenes
that can be found
within many things.
Sometimes nearby
might look as a day
as beauty within it
as times far away.

Well,   there ya go.  Yea, I know it’s not one
of my best writings,  but hey,  they can’t all
be winners.  I hope you liked it and maybe
even a bit of my rambling,  but, if not then
maybe next week.  So,  what else is there to
tell ya?  Hmm, I can’t think of anything to
tell you,  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 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 time for
me to begin my search for that silly hardly
elusive off switch, but not before I wish you
a truly happy 4th of July and a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Okey dokey,  so where is
that ornery off switch hiding this time????
LOL looking over at my software bag I just
happened to notice it shifting a little bit to
the right.  Not enough room for ya in it is
there LOL!  Did ya get squoze out hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Images of Style

Searching for patterns
in the sky up above
you might discover
something to think of.
Such as the formations
of cloudlike designs
that seems as reflected
inside of our minds.
Time becomes clouded
as life falls away
leaving all the images
of a scenic array.
You might even smell
the scent of a flower
within the images
of the timeless hour.
Seconds might become
as a mere memory
tasting of fine wine
of a time’s history.
Allow for the scenes
to help create a smile
as you then encompass
the images of style.

Times To Embrace

Living within us
are times and ways
often as windows
to yesterday’s days.
Maybe an old barn
or a cloudy sky
might become life
as where and why.
Remembering time
as a swinging door
times to embrace
that we want more.
Yet they are only
a shadowy scene
colors evolving
as shades of green.
Leaving memories
of a distant face
within moments
times to embrace.

Moments Transform

Our living moments
become many days
as now and again
within many ways.
So many forget
the ticking of time
until it’s much later
as a frame of mind.
Our bodies wither
as pages are turned
days upon days
till life’s adjourned.
Seek for a pathway
in your daily stride
that has a purpose
with love applied.
So don’t live a life
that’s daily forlorn.
Enjoy your life till
moments transform.

Time Has Passed

Thriving as dreams
living perceptions
become the mirrors
scenic connections.
Time starts painting
as minutes tick on
leaving memories
as words of a song.
Sung within seconds
that quickly go by
the past becomes
the seasons to fly.
Seen as the clouds
float high overhead
might be an ocean
of stories to tread,
The sky in its glory
that changes so fast
becomes a memoir
as time has passed.

Summer’s Shine

As spring bids adieu
summertime shines
showing its existence
with many designs.
Scents of the grasses
and flowers unite
creating the pictures
for time to ignite.
Illuminating scenes
that might fall away
seeming as weeds
of another array.
Yet in the moments
seconds come alive
as black eyed Susans
and daisies arrive.
Becoming artwork
of a seasonal time
this is what’s found
in a summer’s shine.

Found and Framed

Walking through life
my eyes set upon
a place well hidden
as a wordless song.
It seemed magical
this wonderful place
for it was a moment
with Godly grace.
As I looked closely
a peace intertwined
filling my heart with
a moment in time.
Just but a moment,
but still it was seen
framed in my mind
as a living dream.
I found and held it
as a sweet memory
and took a picture
for later to see.
It became a memoir
that times attained
within a heartbeat
found and framed.

Timeless Flow

Rivers of journeys
pathways of time
might become lost
deep in our mind.
Flowing as dreams
that aren’t so true
a life of illusions
might be in view.
Find the reality
within your dream
and help it to flow
a fulfilled stream.
Often its journey
is not clear to see
so look a bit closer
and find reality.
Seasons of lessons
help us to grow
seeming unending
as a timeless flow.

Ages Await

Just like a tractor
awaiting to plow
time is a doorway
for it to endow.
Often as seconds
tick on thereunto
the ages await
for times to view.
Moments reveal
what is to be
sights and sounds
we hear and see.
There are many
awaiting a time
a place or face
for life to find.
Let blessings in
as time ticks on
and let them sing
a heavenly song.
One with a tune
that’ll surely elate
sung as a rhythm
as the ages await.

Dreamer’s Sky

Breath of ocean
and sight of blue
gives the skyline
a magical view.
Time enhanced
as scenic sights
the sky up above
that then ignites.
Becoming dreams
of passing flames
that live within
what time attains.
A sky of beauty
a sky of love
scenes that exist
so high up above.
The very essence
may seem to fly
within the times
a dreamer’s sky.

Still of Time

The sights we see
as footsteps grow
might be there
for eyes to know.
Even the scents
of grasses green
the still of time
creates a scene.
Just like a book
of wordily ways
time moves on
creating displays.
Forming styles
that come in view
as the still of time
of old and new.
Counted dreams
the moments find
may live within
the still of time.

Time is a doorway
that’s opening and closing
with chances to take.

The length of a lie
continues to get longer
if truth is not said.

Living in a dream
can become as a nightmare
as time awakens.

The ways of others
need not be the ways of you,
for you are not them.

Trials that time gives us
can create strength within us
if we don’t give up.

The past meets present
as the memories enhance
the good and the bad.

Long winded people
often tell more than they should
while no one listens.

Limited pathways
make choices harder to choose,
but not impossible.

Stages ones walk on
might only be in their mind
and not really real.

Windows to our minds
might be seen clearly in life
with our daily walk.

When counting the stars
you might surely lose your count
as you fall asleep.

The moments in time
that we let to pass us by
might be important.

Breathing in sadness
only creates more sadness,
so breathe in a smile.

Some now and agains
that we allow to prosper
might now need to end.

The lighting of life
can be either good or bad
discerning our sight.

Invading ones dreams
with your negativity
can end a friendship.

Shadows of the days
are formed within the seconds
showing memories.

Summertime’s journey
begins when springtime is gone
leaving seeds to grow.

The lines on our face
tell stories about our life
with smiles and sadness.

Hands held together
are stronger than when alone
so help somebody.

Reading between lines
might become misunderstood
as you read wrongly.

The storms of our life
might seem to be unending,
but God gives us peace.

Then’s a memory
that becomes a reflection
as time moves along.

Patience is gathered
as impatience is beaten
allowing a breath.

Challenging others
for what you know little of
can show you a fool.

Temptations of life
can create many problems
if we don’t resist.

Travels remembered
become as the memories
found when disabled.

Waterless rivers
are as minds without thinking
becoming deserts.

Lost within moments
seconds can become mountains
creating worry.

Stretching your chances
can become thinner in time
leaving slim chances.

Irritations grow
as echoes of history
dig into our mind.

Our blessings in life
become the best memories
when troubles are near.

Thought creates hopeful
if we let God to help us
and we don’t give up.

Yesterdays of life
become as lessons to learn
or times to repeat.

Storybook settings
of seasonal memories
can create a smile.

Yearning for things
that are not truly needed
can envelop you.

The changes in life
might be filled with confusion
that creates a storm.

Living for moments
could leave you in much despair
as time takes its toll.

When guarding your heart
you might prevent the goodness
from entering in.

Seconds and minutes
become as our reflections
when hours multiply.

A distant sunrise
can awaken the flowers
and make them to bloom.

Deep beneath a lie
holds the truth of a moment
awaiting to be seen.

The passing breezes
that cool down a summer’s day
are often not felt.

Complaining always
keeps the negative alive
leaving emptiness.
