Pictures and I


Hello my friends

It’s hot up here,  but it might not be near
as hot as it is where you are 🙂  Still it’s too
hot for me.  Thankfully our landlord has
been doing all of the mowing for me as he
knows my health conditions do not let me
do much in 80 and above heat.   Though I
do try to mow if I feel that I am able to,
but in most cases,  I have to wait for it to
cool down first.  I don’t wanna end up in
the hospital due to another stroke 🙂  My
body can’t handle hot weather.  That’s 1
of the reasons that I prefer wintertime so
much.  The other reason is that I love to
watch it snow and see the beauty to come
to light 🙂   Yes I know it does present a
few problems such as snows us in from
time to time,  but still,  it is beautiful 🙂
I don’t mind snow blowing much.  Our
boy Rocky loves to come out when I’m
clearing the driveway.  LOL Benny also
loved being out while I was clearing the
driveway.  He would get right in front
of me and make me blow snow on him.
That little boy truly loved snow.  We’d
have to just let him get tired of playing
in it,  before we could get him to come
back inside.  Rocky likes the snow,  but
Benny loved it.  We miss Benny and his
big brother Milo.  Those two were always
hanging together.  Benny irritated Milo,
but he put up with it and often would
chase him around the house LOL.  We
have a video of them doing that hehehe.
Yet,  now we have Rocky and he keeps
us entertained with his hilarity.  He loves
me to hold him,   but he is a heavy little
boy and I can only hold him for a little
while until my arms and legs start going
to sleep LOL.  Anyways,  we love the
little guy.  He’s our little boy.  Last week
we didn’t do too much being it was too
hot,  although last Wednesday it was
not too hot so we took Rocky out for a
little field trip.  He always loves to run
in the field in front/back of our house.
He though after a bit,  was ready to go
home and he let us know that by taking
off towards the house leaving us in his
dust LOL.  Yeppers,  it was too hot for
him,  but he did enjoy the little run and
you could tell as he went on his little
ventures through the tall grass hehehe.
Yes we took pictures and I will put a
few of them in my stationery.   So, for
those of you that are receiving this in
the stationery format,  you’ll see the
pictures,  but for those of you that are
receiving it in plain text,  I’m SORRY.
Yesterday/Saturday we drove to town
and went to Walmart and then went to
Houlton Farm’s Dairy Bar and got us
some ice cream.  Then we stopped off
and got pizzas to take home.  It was
a splurging day and thankfully our
car has a good air conditioner LOL.
Though Rocky had to stay home due
to the heat,  because we weren’t sure
how long we’d be in Walmart and we
didn’t want him to melt in the car 🙂
So we left a few fans on in the living
room and promised that we would be
back before he knew it LOL.  Like he
could understand what we said hehehe.
I’m reasonably sure that many of you
that have pets talk to them that way 🙂
Rocky is family and we love that little
boy.  LOL he does though get on our
nerves time to time especially when he
insist that it is time for us to get up
and he starts pestering us until we get
up hehehe.  Yep,  we’ve got an exciting
life,  NOT hehehe.  Although it’s good
enough for us.  When it cools down a
little bit we have plans on going for
a picture taking drive and also to do a
little bit of mini golfing 🙂 but it has to
be at least in the 70’s LOL.  The temps
should start dropping a bit in the next
week or so.  Up here,  August is when
summer normally loses its grip and I’m
happy about that.  God has been good
to us.  We have had a few struggles,  but
somehow they are eased.  When storms
come in our life,  God often intervenes
with blessings,  but sometimes He might
allow the storms to strengthen us for
the future.  Thank You God for all that
You have done and all that You will do.
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 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 little
place of my recollection that I like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I
might of found me a fairly nice title
to use near the halfway point of my
rambling and I am fairly sure that I
have not used,  but I’ll check any way.
Nope,  I haven’t used it,  so it shall be
used today.  Here goes…

Pictures and I

There are the times
we might perceive
pages and pages
of a spider’s weave.
Seeming reflections
of our own accord
places we went to
away from our Lord.
Yet within pictures
might show a day
you stopped a while
to kneel and pray.
Seen as a window
time peeks through
the pictures and I
in momentous view.
Seasons had passed
that left me a sign
that God was there
surely all the time.
He held my hand
as troubles began
and carried me on
 passed sinking sand.
Yes God is with me
with eyes in the sky
also seen with me
as pictures and I.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even a little bit of my
rambling 🙂  Judy is still busy crocheting.
Yep,  she’s making her sister Barbara a
summer T-shirt.  She said she’s almost
done with it and might get done with it
today.  Judy’s wanting to get back to
doing a little painting.  I look forward
to it.  I love her artwork.  I guess that is
near all that I have to tell you,  but I do
have a special request and that is for my
mom.  She broke her ankle a week or so
ago and is now in the hospital getting
it operated on and will be going through
a bit of recovery to help her to walk as
soon as it heals.  Also pray for my big
sister,  being she is keeping tabs on mom
and making sure she is OK.  Thank You
Peggy.  I love you and mom.  I wish that
I were closer and able to help,  but you
I’m sure understand.  Anyways,  thank
you from the bottom of my heart.  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 🙂
Yep,  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 is time to
begin my search for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you all
a truly blessings filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.   So OK
now,  where can that ornery off switch
be trying or not trying to hide this time?
LOL I was right on the second trying!
It parked itself on top of the D batteries
that are sitting right in front of me LOL.
What cha doing?  Looking for a charge?
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Wishful Thinking

Ponds of emotion
flow as a stream
as ones wish for
many a thing.
Sights perplexing
may splash away
disclosing times
of day unto day.
Seasons emerge
as a waterspout
flowing with time
in ways and out.
Formed as energy
timeless travels
wishful thinking
then unravels.
Becoming alive
as now and again
bestowing ages
of wishful wind.
Don’t let dreams
to become sinking
for hope exist in
wishful thinking.

Nighttime Scenes

Illusions of time
might appear
within the night
of a yesteryear.
Scenes memoirs
written in style
form a window
maybe a smile.
Night has a way
of seeming still
as we look from
life’s windowsill.
We might find
a distant light
a nearby town
in dark of night.
We may also see
the moon above
shining brightly
so full of love.
It might seem as
so many dreams
as sleep found in
nighttime scenes.

Distant Horizon

Scenery as waves
form in the mind
as a time’s horizon
of a daily design.
Waves might crest
and wash over you
creating a story
your eyes can view.
Feeling splashing
of a timeless day
distant horizons
have much to say.
Fragrance of words
heard as a breath
giving a moment
a time for rest.
Walking in waves
time might expose
seasons of scenes
as an ocean rose.
Budding as waters
in a timeless sun
waves then unite
a distant horizon.

Seeking Sunshine

Summertime sights
become as a phase
black eyed Susans
of many displays.
Some within a field
with colors of gold
becoming as photos
to surely unfold.
Telling their stories
of a scenic detail
as they give many
a peaceful exhale.
Then breathing in
the flowers invite
a time so divine
as a magical sight.
Seen as a moment
collected in a view
it becomes artwork
to live within you.
So seek the flowers
so simple to find
as you go outdoors
seeking sunshine.

Shadows of Life

Now in memories
time might portray
the passing essence
of a distant array.
Shadows of a style
within photographs
become recollected
in images they cast.
Smelling the aroma
of a distant place
enhances a dream
as a warm embrace.
Hearing the ocean
as the waves roll in
can create journeys
moments transcend.
Stood with a smile
a husband and wife
this is a reflection
of shadows of life.

Points of View

Living windows
scenic views
become alive
as times infuse.
Our perspective
might not see
points of view
within history.
Minutes wither
leaving style
as times of life
that did compile.
Warm embraces
become gold
points of view
as times unfold.
So many people
pass right by
and do not see
a wondrous sky.
They might only
see the pain
points of view
that’s only rain.
Find the beauty
in the days
losing sight
of hateful ways.
Let the minutes
become anew
finding better
points of view.

Exposing a Stage

Links to our journeys
find ways to breathe
syncing together
a shadow to weave.
Living as turnstiles
of life’s expositions
a mind’s transformed
to timeless renditions.
We might remember
the passing of days
things encountered
in so many ways.
A page from a book
the time might seem
when displaying ages
of a timeless scene.
The minutes gather
recreating a style
of a time long ago
that brought a smile.
A distant emotion
forms from the age
of a pictured scene
exposing a stage.

Dragonfly of Art

Living as a memory
a moment entwines
that of a dragonfly
in scenic designs.
Yet within artwork
it might become
a painting of life
in a season of sun.
We might but only
know of their flight
as we perceive them
in sceneries sight.
They are known as
a mosquito’s enemy
so often seen flying
a true sight to see.
Yet now within the
times that impart
this is a display of
some dragonfly art.

Green Butterflies

We saw them one day
gathered on the ground
awaiting to take flight
and to fly all around.
They brought us smiles
as we took photographs
on a seasonal summer
a time within the past.
We saw many things
while walking that day
scenes that of beauty
and magical array.
Time opened pages
to a momentous sight
of the sky up above
with clouds of white.
But yet for a moment
we found a surprise
sitting within grasses
were green butterflies.

Haunting Eve

A passing of time
can create scenes
maybe a haunting
of timeless dreams.
Becoming artwork
of cinematic ages
you may discover
a turning of pages.
As an evening sun
gives us its best
it seeks for night
a moment of rest.
Yet it continues on
sight to perceive,
but in our passing
it’s a haunting eve.

for July 23,  2022

Tomorrow’s memories
will be filled full of today,
so make them real good.

Leaving an echo
amidst living hurricanes
repeats destruction.

Life’s trials by fire
can become the best recalled
teaching us lessons.

Holding too tightly
to someone you truly love
can run them away.

Trusting everyone
can put trouble in your path,
so don’t be stupid.

Efforts of a breeze
might blow beyond a time frame
and become a storm.

Flowers of summer
display heartbeats of sunshine
that bloom of a phase.

Living for a time
can become a big mistake,
for it might have flaws.

Seen through a tunnel
a light that is at the end
might be a problem.

Striving for a breath
amidst a liar lying
might leave you suffocating.

Seasons of moments
become shadows of themselves
as time goes its way.

Limiting footsteps
can create bubbles in life
that prevent learning.

Now will become then
as seconds create the times
of which we repeat.

Many of our paths
are filled with life’s illusions
that we think are true.

Heated arguments
can become times dynamite
with words of regret.

Styles of a moment
might not look good later on,
so just be yourself.

Thresholds of anger
are often hidden in eyes
that glare of fire.

Leading a liar
down a truthful corridor
might cause them to run.

Gearing up for life
some might gear up way too soon
and slip out of time.

Mountains of chances
are often in front of us
seeking the wrong ones.

Blind leading the blind
is a metaphor for life
that leads to nowhere.

Many doorways
may have many different journeys
that only you see.
