I Had Thought


Hello my friends

I know I’m a day late with this,  but yesterday
(Sunday) was our 21 year wedding anniversary
and Judy and I were busy enjoying it.  We had
a great day driving taking pictures of the fall
colors and all we could find to take pictures of
and then we went out to eat at the Governor’s
Restaurant as we do most every year.  I’ll share
the pictures from then next week 🙂  Anyways,
I went for one last check up on my eye at the
eye doctor
Wednesday and my eye has fully
recovered.  I have been doing poetry pictures
as I did before.  I was really worried that my
eye would be damaged to the point of never
healing fully,  but thank God it did.  It was
a beautiful day Sunday as it is today.  Right
now at 1 PM it’s 51 F degrees.  It looks like
it will be in the mid 60’s starting Tuesday and
then by Saturday drop back to the 50’s for a
bit.  It’s supposed get down to 28 F degrees by
tomorrow morning.  It was supposed to drop
to 25 F degrees by this morning,  but I do not
know if it made it.  It got close though LOL.
I did finally drive to Walmart and buy some
screws and washers and fixed the underpinning
on our house.  Remember,  a big portion of
it had blown away during a bad wind storm
last winter and another portion of it blew
away a few weeks ago during yet another
wind storm.  I fixed it to where it should not
blow away again unless our home goes too.
So,  I’m ready for winter.  I have still yet to
of fixed our toilet,  being it requires me to
have to lie in the floor in a enclosed space
that has very little room,  but I will one
day fix it,  but for the mean time we have
to reach down and turn the water on to fill
the toilet reservoir and then turn it off when
it’s filled or it will just keep running.  The
toilet float that is supposed to shut off the
water when it reaches a height isn’t working.
It has a leak in the float.  I have bought a
toilet instillation to repair it and I will do
it when I feel up to it.  LOL doing all of the
underpinning almost did me it on top of me
having to get my ladder and climb up and
repair the trailer where the squirrels had it
all messed up and me and heights don’t get
along well since I fell at my work place years
ago and cracked my skull opened hehehe.
Anyways,  our waitress at the Governor’s
Restaurant was awesome.  She took our
picture using my camera and next week I
will share it as well as the selfies that Judy
and I took in our booth 🙂  Thursday of
last week Judy and I went to town for one
of her doctor visits and when we got home
we were welcomed by a whole bunch of
wild turkeys in our yard.   LOL I got out
of the car and took a few pictures of them.
They made their way across our yard to
the trees and disappeared in them.  I can
remember the first time I saw their tracks
in the snow.  I had no clue to what I was
seeing.  Their foot prints are quite bizarre
and I had never seen them before.  This
was shortly after we had moved up here.
There’s not many wild turkeys in Texas
or at least I had never seen any and I’m
a born and raised Texan LOL.  Life has
really changed up for me up here.  I’ve
seen and done things that I would of
never have done while living in Texas 🙂
Looking at my weather program I see
that it did not reach the high that was
forecasted.  It only got up to 55 today
which that is what it is at this moment
2:30 PM.  It will start cooling down in
a little bit.  Judy went with her sister
Barbara to her doctors appointment
being she did not want Barb to drive
alone.  Barbara’s appointment was for
about 8 AM this morning and they had
to drive to Presque Isle which is near 45
miles north of us.  So Judy had to get
up early this morning.  She is now in bed
taking a nap.  I’ll wake her when I am
done writing this mess if she isn’t awake
before I get done.  While she was gone
with Barb,  I did a load of laundry and
Rocky had to go outside a couple of
time to go potty LOL.  Yep,  we are an
exciting bunch aren’t we LOL.  God is
still watching over us as He has from the
very beginning.  We’re sure that we have
many angels and kindly spirits watching
over us.  I feel blessed to have such a
loving wife that God has put in my life.
I am also thankful for all of my family
and friends,  especially the ones that
have loved me even if I might be a little
strange.  Thank You God for all of the
blessings that You have given us as well
as all of the ones You gave me when
I had thought I was all alone.  You’ve
never left me.  Thank You.  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 brand new poem.  So,  it’s away
I go to that lil place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I do believe I may have found
a decent title just a few lines back and
now after checking I see that I haven’t
use it yet,  so used it shall be.  Here goes.

I Had Thought

We might think
a day might become
but only a moment
of a beating drum.
We might even see
what’s straight ahead
and think it’s wrong
when it’s right instead.
The seasons become
paintings in stride
as times we thought
we needed to hide.
Yet we’re as actors
to day to day scenes
some as nightmares
and some as dreams.
My past was a storm
I was lost within
seeking for a breath
a new day to begin,
but I found one day
that I had a whole lot
and I changed my view
from what I had thought.

 Well,  there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even a little bit of my
rambling 🙂  I haven’t much else to tell
you aside from please put in a prayer for
my friend Sara W.  She is very sick,  but
I know God will pull her through.  So 🙂
I guess all I have left to tell you is what
I tell you nearly 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.  So now I reckon it’s
time for me to begin my search for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but surely not
before I wish you all a great blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Okey dokey now,
where’s that ornery off switch hiding
this time.  Hiding is something it seems
to not do very well LOL.  Anyways, here
I go on a search.  Looking in all of its
most recent hiding spots and no switch.
Hmm,  I think I can see a little bit of
movement behind my potassium bottle.
Hey,  if you’re gonna hide,  you might
want t pick something that isn’t smaller
than you to hide behind ya silly thing 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Presence of Mind

Above and beyond
our future and past
the minutes tick on
with shadows to cast.
Seasons of sections
we traveled through
might within a way
come back in view.
Maybe an old house
or a seasonal stage
living as a breath
from day unto day.
Presence of mind
can often become
as an awakening
of a so distant
Seasonal thresholds
of a prayerful design
can become blessings
presence of mind.

Thought an Illusion

Life’s transformations
are there to explore
and might just seem as
a time long before.
There might be a stage
that’s seen in styles
forming an illusion
of minutes and miles.
There may be a sight
of a slow going time
that is just an illusion
found in your mind.
Yet it might thrive
as a heartfelt array
that of a loved one
that’s now gone away.
Look in the picture
and see what is there,
then look within you
and say a little prayer.
For now might be only
a moment’s confusion
that which is truthful
thought an illusion.

Moonlight’s Contour

Seconds are forming
as moments await
while we move onto
a new time and date.
Songs within the sky
are sung as a phase
moonlight’s contour
a sight we can gaze.
Take in the music
as timeless romance
floating in the skies
a momentary glance.
Dancing high above
you might see a sight
dancing in daytime
seeking for night.
God gave the moon
a reflection’s glow
to give light to night
for dreams to grow.
It may not be round
this cosmic allure,
but be as a blessing
moonlight’s contour.

Dreamers Hues

Lights might glow
as living scenes
giving the essence
of magical dreams
Formed from life
a turn of a page
as dreamers hues
of a scenic phase.
Timeless creations
a distant horizon
become a dream
that eyes are upon.
They might bloom
just like a flower
as dreamers hues
within an hour.
Time continues on
as a living fuse
lit with emotions
of dreamers hues.

Seasonal Sky

Just like a passage
doorways in minds
a seasonal window
forms skies designs.
Scented of a dream
that times awaken
presenting a view
that eyes partaken.
Becoming a style
of a scenic arrival
the seasons create
a timeless revival.
Memories heighten
in each passing day
as a seasonal sky
comes out to play.
Creating illusions
of a heart’s desire
blessing are found
as a burning fire.
Flames of a season
flourish so high
in a heavenly scene
as a seasonal sky.

Evening’s Parade

Clouds in formation
might move in the sky
as a parade of scenery
saying hello goodbye.
Passing as a breeze
in a skyline’s display
and marching as time
at the end of the day.
There might be colors
of an orangish hue
in an evening’s parade
that once was so blue.
Minutes become dark
as nighttime begins
and sunshine ceases
in an evening’s winds.
Breezes might blow
as time continues on
living as a blessing
in a dreamer’s song.
Time might enhance
what minutes made
creating an illusion
of evening’s parade.

Essence of Autumn

Sometimes a scene
might come in view
a time that enhances
the old and the new.
There may be a sight
found on the ground
essence of autumn
in scenes all around.
Maybe some colors
of an orangish sight
such as a pumpkin
so many find fright.
A Halloween essence
that’s scented of fear
as a timeless design
within every year.
Yet many find then
a Thanksgiving meal
with a pumpkin pie
and a tasty appeal.
So if you’re seeking
a Halloween treat
essence of autumn
might give the feat.

Minds in The Clouds

Searching and seeking
what hopeful desires
minds in the clouds
can ignite many fires.
Burning as illusions
of clouds of design
some create dreams
so many seek to find.
Living in a fantasy
time might display
a real bad reality
in a horrific array.
So look to the clouds
and seek a true path
minds of a doorway
good shadows to cast.
Allow new windows
within every dawn
as seconds heighten
and live on and on.
Creating journeys
a new day endows
allowing for hopeful
as minds in the clouds.

Rowing in Unison

We may struggle
with now and again
but we can make it
rowing with a friend.
Time’s an ocean
waves all around
creating minutes
of scenic sound.
Finding rhythms
in beating hearts
that are dreamers
of stages of arts.
Beginning today
our hearts can find
rowing in unison
a true peace of mind.

Summer To Fall

Life is as leaves
that live and die
leaving reflections
in a living sky.
Memories bloom
as colors are seen
in seasonal shows
as a scenic dream.
Summer moves on
and leaves a view
as colors awaken
in autumn anew.
They may be timid
the colors you see,
but be as blessings
for you and me.
Seeming a window
that opens up wide
life’s a wonderland
with time inside.
Search for scenes
God gave us all
blessings arrivals
as summer to fall.

for Oct 1,  2022

Some words of wisdom
might seem to be ignorant,
but yet may make sense.

Leaving bitterness
within yesterdays shadows
can come back to haunt.

Becoming alive
changes the very meaning
when it means wake up.

Now is just a time
that once lived in our future
that we knew not of.

Worrying daily
about things you could have done
can create ulcers.

The pain of heartbreak
often follows a dreamer,
for they seek the wrong.

Pages of our life
can often become misread
as ones remember.

Needing a passage
to get you from here to there,
you might seek wrongly.

The fruits of our life
might be the shadows ones see
that shows them the way.

Sharing a flower
that is really a blessing
can enhance your life.

Beyond our doorways
might be many things to see
that are good and bad.

Harboring anger
can unleash some dynamite
that might just explode.

A worrying mind
is often full of regret
for what could of been.

Pictures we’ve taken
might enhance our memories
in seeing the past.

Fields of illusions
are haunted by weeds and more
that ones never mow.

So many questions
have no answer that is right,
for it’s who that speaks.

Walking in the woods
the sounds can become alive
that live in our mind.

Dreaming of a time
that you wish to become true,
you might find sadness.

Often our echoes
are heard by many people
that do not know us.

The stars in the night
can become beacons of love
to live in our dreams.

A wanted array
in a discontent value
can leave you wanting.

Traveling mindsets
may always want different
seeking happiness.
