Not as Strong


Hello my friends

I’m back.   I’ve been sick with double pneumonia
I am still suffering from it,  but each day gets a lil
better.  Judy had a bad ear infection and cough
and she’s doing much better since our visit to the
walk in clinic. Of course that walk in did not help
me one bit and I ended up at the ER having many
antibiotics pumped into me intravenously for a
few hours.  Now I take Doxycycline Mono 100 MG
caps every day for 14 days.  I’ll be glad when I get
all of that gunk coughed up out of my lungs.  It’s
apparently been building a few days from walking
pneumonia to double.  I had thought it was just
my asthma acting up,  but nope LOL.  Anyways,
next topic.  I figured I should get back to writing.
I had not written any poetry in the passed week
while I was real sick,  but this passed Friday I
buckled down and wrote some as well I wrote
some on Saturday as well as haiku.  So I have
a few for ya 🙂  It’s hard getting back into the
swing of things,  but,  I’ll manage.  It’s hard to
do anything when your coughing your insides
out LOL.  It had also caused me to lose my
hearing in my only good ear (my left ear) and
that was driving me batty,  but fortunately I
had bought a cheap hearing aid a long while
back for my right ear to see if it could help it
any,  but nope.  It’s stone deaf.  I used that
hearing aid on my left ear and it helped me
get by.  My hearing has since come back in
it thank God.  Well,  there hasn’t been much
of anything going on around this place other
than 2 sickos trying to get well LOL.  The
weather is looking more and more winter like
as the temperature drops a little bit with each
passing day.  It’s supposed to rain most of
the week beginning Monday ending by Friday.
I’m going to buy us two new 40 volt batteries
for our snow blowers and lawn mower.  The
ones I have are getting old being we have had
them for near 6 or 7 years LOL,  but they still
hold a charge,  just not as strong as they did in
the beginning.   So new batteries being bought
when we get paid next month.  They’ll cost me
around 300 dollars,  but worth every penny 🙂
So,  what else is happening or not around here?
Hmmm,  well,  Rocky is still as ornery as ever 🙂
He’s happy to see us both feeling better.  You
could see the worried look in his eyes,  even if
they were sort of hidden behind his hair hehehe.
He’s in need of a haircut,  but neither of us has
felt good enough to do it.  We though are going
to try and give him a haircut this week.  I know
he’ll be happy LOL.  He hates getting his hair
cut especially his underbelly and his feet,  but
we’ll give it a go and do the best we can.  There
isn’t much else that I can think of to tell you.
God is still watching over us and giving us the
strength to make each new day.  We can still
feel the presence of many angels and kindly
spirits around us helping us and guiding us
as each day comes to pass.  Thank You God
for all that You do and all that You have done
as well as thanking all of the angels and kindly
spirits for all that you do.  AMEN and AMEN.
Now I do believe it is time 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 place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I might have found a fairly decent title
about the midway of my journal and now after
checking I see that it has not been used yet, but
used it shall be.   Here goes…

Not as Strong

Just like a storm
time might entail
so many moments
the seconds exhale.
Within struggles
time might unleash
seasons of stages
creating peace.
Storms of a scene
can often become
weathering seasons
times to succumb.
Yet in a moment
you might be seen
flowing as a river
like a living stream.
Lessons of the past
helped you along
building you up
when not so strong.

Well there ya go.  I hope you liked the poem and
maybe even a little of my rambling.  I do believe
I’ve told you all that there is to tell,  that of course
I can think of at the moment hehehe.  If I think of
something else,  I’ll share it next week.  Oh yea, no
I was not able to fix the toilet,  being I had gotten
very sick,  so it is what it is LOL.  It still works as
we turn the water valve on and off to fill the toilet
tank.  Anyways,  that’s all I have for ya other than
what I tell you nearly every week and that is I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers 8 more poems
with 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.  I’ll get back to my regular 10 poems this week 🙂
Now with that said,  I reckon it’s time for me to begin
my search for that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Okey dokey now 🙂
so where can that ornery off switch be trying to hide
this week.  It’s had plenty of time to find it a good
hiding spot,  but as I gaze around the room,  I see
that it did not use its time trying to find a hiding spot,
but yet to only find a place to take a freaking nap 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Finding Breath

Times may come
enhancing scenes
seen as seconds
of living dreams.
Yet in a moment
time may display
a scenic breath
in a magical way.
Many an illusion
within the blue
become a breath
as a scenic view.
Let time become
as your destiny
sights to discover
and things to see.
Creating oceans
of times to access
to keep you alive
finding breath.

Hidden From View

Within time frames
life might appear
as just but a trail
from a yesteryear.
You might just see
some fluffy snow
seeming to travel
and put on a show.
Yet you might not
see what is there
below the snow
with love and care.
Train tracks of life
may wait for you
choices to make
hidden from view.

Living Passages

Moments may move
and form a stage
just like a journey
from age unto age.
It may seem reflected
essence and style
as leaves of autumn
most surely compile.
Falling from the trees
awaiting the cold
wintertime’s essence
that seasons unfold.
God sends blessings
a seasonal view
the living passages
from old to anew.

Distant Horizon

A driving mind
becomes a journey
to time and place
of which to see.
Striving decisions
of forces within
distant horizons
times transcend.
Endless moments
enhanced by time
live on and on
deep in our mind.
Sweet memories
still live as a view
scenic explosions
we’re driving to.
The stage becomes
a scent we desire
a distant horizon
a skyline of fire.
Search deep within
to seek for the son
and find the hope
a distant horizon.

Clouds of Cotton

Now is a vision
a sight to become
as that of clouds
of a cottony sum.
Forming illusions
in the sky above
often as cotton
or that of a dove.
Don’t let sadness
to fill your day
becoming clouds
but only as gray.
Seek the beauty
find your peace
within the clouds
that times release.
Let God fill you
with love and joy
as time moves on
let peace deploy.
Don’t let blessings
to be forgotten
in your memories
clouds of cotton.

Tumbling Down

Withering scenes
the shadows cast
create reflections
of slow and fast.
Seasonal sights
formulate a view
tumbling down
then thereunto.
It may look sad
a passing phase
withered away
in future arrays.
Often our view
is only a glimpse
that’s of a sight
a seasonal sense.
We might recall
a barn stood tall
that stood strong
and never to fall.
Yet time displays
empty of sound
echoes of a life
tumbling down.

Simplicity’s Stage

Seconds,  minutes
hours and days
can become ages
in wonderful ways.
Unleashing times
we remember well
simplicity’s stage
as a story to tell.
Maybe a shadow
of a time and place
one of a moment
a time to embrace.
It might only be
a tractor’s design
coming over a hill
within your mind.
It’s pure simplicity
an ageless sight
driven by daytime
and also by night.
Reflect on a scene
that’s age unto age
within memories
simplicity’s stage.

Colors of Mind

Thriving as dreams
time becomes fuel
igniting doorways
as a seasonal jewel.
Within a window
of autumns cuisine
our colors of mind
flow as a stream.
Pouring as waters
of timeless details
leaves may become
as ships with sails.
Sailing so briskly
on an autumn day
as colors of mind
might blow away.
Becoming memoirs
of a point in time
this is perceived
as colors of mind.

for Oct 22,  2022

Time is like artwork
creating masterpieces
for life to display.

Limitless windows
are amidst time’s passages
often well hidden.

Deciding factors
that become as our ages
might drive us insane.

Searching for a dream
within life’s living nightmares
you might need to pray.

Ages of answers
create many more questions
within perception.

Believing in change
can create new days to come,
but we must believe.

Confusion in words
can often create stories
that no one can read.

Shattered emotions
from a doorway of anger
might grow to explode.

Harboring hatred
for ones you really don’t know
shows your ignorance.

Many have problems
that we might not understand,
so pray about it.

Scenes within autumn
are as a magical sight
that await winter.

Believing in God
can give you a breath to breathe
when kneeling in prayer.

Life’s stupidity
is found inside many doors
that we might enter.

Looking for a path
to become your daily stride
you might find some holes.

Fields of illusion
are a dreamer’s paradise
that can turn sour.

Hands held together
can become stronger in time
if they do not slip.

Grading a moment
by what that you know not of
you might grade wrongly.

The future of time
is always awaiting us,
but some aren’t ready.

Seeking true sunshine
within a cloudy skyline,
you might see a storm.

Prayer can awaken
and unleash many blessings,
but needs us to pray.

Discerning pathways
so many will choose wrongly
due to much hurry.

Our true friends of life
will stay our friends whatever
no matter what falls.
