Good Lighting


Hello my friends

I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving day.
Judy and I went to her side of the families
house and we had a good time.  Judy and
I took a lot of pictures,  but many of them
are out of focus being indoors and not very
good lighting,  but we got a few good ones.
We still have snow on the ground and might
get a little bit Monday.  It’s all just a guess.
It’ll snow when it snows LOL.  So,  we are
now just trying to stay warm.  Heating oil
is getting hard to come by as well as being
with a high price.  I’m hoping that I can
make the electric heaters to suffice until
hopefully the fuel prices find a place that
they are affordable as well as acquirable.
We have plenty to get us by for a while,
but it won’t last but another month or so.
I have a feeling that we’re going to have
a winter to be remembered this season 🙂
It’s just a feeling in my bones that I have
that makes me think we might get more
snow than normal.  Our landlord is in the
hospital again,  but supposed to be home
sometime this week.  I’m worried about
him.  His health has been getting worse.
Please keep him in your prayers.  Judy
and I are doing well.  We’re both over
all of the ailments we had a while back.
LOL of course neither of us will ever be
in great health,  but we’re better than we
were a month ago.  Yep,  Judy’s still hard
at her crocheting and playing her game
Candy Crush when not crocheting LOL.
In between all of that we watch a lot of
our favorite TV programs.  We’re such
a lively bunch hehehe.  Rocky is actually
the lively one.  He is always giving us a
hard time LOL.  He loves to voice his
opinion LOUDLY hehehe.  He is also
the one that wakes us up every single
day.  Yep,  when he thinks it’s time to
get up he lets it be known hehehe and
he doesn’t take no for an answer LOL.
It’s OK,  because by that time,  he is
more than likely correct about it being
time to get up LOL,  but heaven forbid
that we forget to turn the alarm clock
off if we had it set for the day before,
because once it goes off,  he is pawing
at the bed saying time to get up and he
will not stop until we do hehehe.  He’s
ornery,  but we love him.  So what else
is going on around this house?  Well, to
be honest,  we don’t do much other than
our hobbies.  Neither one of us is in a
healthy enough position to do much,  so
we do what we are able when feeling up
to it.  I tried to help our neighbor get
his underpinning put on his house,  but
he made himself scarce when I was there
to help him and I am not going to do it
by myself.  They are going to have a hard
time heating their house now.  I tried to
help.  Anyways,  off to another subject.
It’s getting late now,  8:30 PM to be more
specific so I guess I need to hurry and get
this written.  There isn’t much else to tell.
Judy and I live quiet lives.  OK LOL semi
quiet with a bit of barking and yelling at
Rocky to tell him to stop barking hehehe.
God is good.  He has never left our side
as we have traveled throughout life.  We
have many angels and kindly spirits with
us watching over us and helping us when
we cannot help ourselves.  Thank you to
them all,  but mostly thank You God for
never leaving us in the dark without hope.
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 brand new poem.
So,  it’s away I go to that little place of
my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I do think I may
have found me a decent title just a few
lines from the beginning of my rambling
and now after checking,  I see that it has
not been used yet,  so used it shall be 🙂
Here goes…

Good Lighting

Seeing the truth
in words and ways
needs some wisdom
from distant days.
Sometimes liars
speak their minds
leaving a journey
that then unwinds.
A journey of life
that never was true
so use good lighting
to see the view.
Find out the facts
in the devil’s den
and let God’s love
help to see the sin.
Listen and learn
that what’s inviting
might need God and
His good lighting.

Ok,  so there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even my rambling LOL.
I do though time to time run out of things
to say and so that’s where we are right now.
I do have another prayer request and it is
for Judy’s sister Barb.  She’s still struggling
with cancer.  Keep her as well as Calvin our
landlord in your prayers.  Now I do believe
it’s time for me to tell you what I tell you
nearly every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 poems
with 2 semi Christmassy poems in the mix.
I also wrote 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 for me to begin my search
for that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you all a blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now,  where can that ornery off switch be
trying to hide this time LOL?  I use the
word hide very loosely,  being it sucks at
hiding hehehe.  Oh for crying out loud 🙂
Now there’s a really dumb place to hide.
Ya know,  that eye drop bottle can’t be but
only 2 inches high and maybe an inch wide.
How did you expect to hide behind that???
Well, I saw ya behind my REFRESH hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Walking in Storms

Living as echoes
storms might appear
seeming as moments
of time’s yesteryear.
Formed from a seed
confusion becomes
storms of a distant
life’s beating drums.
Walk on your way
let love live inside
as you continue on
in your own stride.
You will find people
of a different stage
running and sliding
from age unto age.
Yet they may only
be hiding their pain
within their storms
of time and again.
So find the blessings
that time adorns
when you are busy
walking in storms.

A Winter’s Sight

It might be a river
or just a stream
within a wintery
magical scene.
Flavors of winter
in a scenic flow
are a sight to see
within the snow.
The stage is set
to be memories
while time creates
a scenic breeze.
It forms a page
of a story book
as a winter’s sight
a timeless look.
Scenes transform
in snow of white
blessings of time
a winter’s sight.

Figments Illusion

Nurturing a sight
that comes in view
can become times
of life within you.
A wintertime stage
as glimmers white
figments illusion.
might be a sight
Discerned scenes
of wintery flakes
conjoined in time
a child partakes.
A season of love
a Christmassy way
seeming illusional
a truthful display.
The fireplace warm
loved ones inside
enjoying a season
peace does reside.
Find the blessings
a true conclusion
often seeming as
figments illusion.

Living Shadows

Searching for truth
in the midst of time
you might find only
a shadow’s design.
Scenes within a day
as a heartbeat true,
but be a reflection
or shadow in you.
You might see time
as a snowflake falls
creating a doorway
that time installs.
A winter unveiled
as a cosmic dream
as living shadows
that eyes have seen.
Maybe just a want
for a day gone by
that lives as echoes
of a dreamer’s sky.
There may be sights
of seasonal snows
Christmas of ages
as living shadows.

Cinematic Stages

Ages of scenery
can become gold
from the memories
stories we’ve told.
Cattle in a field
can be as a dream
sights remembered
a timeless scene.
Seeming a cinema
a stage of desire
an echo of the past
can light a fire.
Burning as a page
from a storybook
a season of scenes
create a new look.
One that is golden,
one of the ages
recorded within as
cinematic stages.

Tracks of Thought

Our journey’s mile
can begin anytime
as a word or a way
or within our mind.
A train of thinking
thoughts that begin
might only be time
blown in the wind.
Look deep within
and find the facts
truth that’s within
the train of tracks.
Find the purpose
the reason desired
that creates wants
to be transpired.
Seek for the truth
of should and not
prayer for answers
tracks of thought.

Catching a Dream

Life can be sights
of memorized times
within our dreams
of instilled designs.
You may see waves
crashing all around
or times bestowing
a sight and sound.
You may not see it
as it thrives within
as dreamers dream
of a now and again.
Caught in a view
time might expose
a place and a taste
or aroma of rose.
You might desire
a prayerful array
of a mere memory
that faded away.
Let God enhance
each magical scene
fishing a heartbeat
catching a dream.

Day Meets Night

Our daily visions
might often see
the times of life
in our history.
We might recall
an evening
so very bright
before it’s done.
Snow may shine
in the sunlight
glittering hues
a magical sight.
Day’s reflections
might be found
as life’s memoirs
seen all around.
Creating sights
shadows speak
telling us stories
that many seek.
Becoming time
as a scenic sight
many moments
day meets night.

Icy Flow

Thoughts we have
can often become
a season of time
of a passing sun.
There may be ice
upon our way
that ceases flow
from day to day.
So many thoughts
can become heard
as only crackling
of an icy word.
Take a moment
and think it clear
before saying all
ones will hear.
If you’re a river
with an icy flow
seek some peace
in God all aglow.

Rushing Through

Minds as water
might be hurried
rushing through
journeys scurried.
Allowing thought
to flow too fast
creating regretful
shadows to cast.
Finding patience
in hurried streams
can set at ease
a night of dreams.
For if we always
seek for speed
we may lose sight
of what we need.
So take a breath
a prayerful view
that’s not always
rushing through.

for Nov 26,  2022

Leaving a doorway
open in midst of a storm
can create a flood.

Hurrying through life
can leave you with much regret
wanting to go back.

The colors of fall
become a painting of life
as well as of death.

Stages of ages
are often colors of time
life illuminates.

Our now and again
can become as reflections
seeming redundant.

When guarding your heart
you might prevent any love
from entering it.

Traveling through life
many things are deceptions
seen in hurried eyes.

Yesterday’s motto
might become tomorrow’s words
hidden within time.

When treating a wound
take notice of the reason
to create lessons.

Years that pass us by
are filled with many stories
some good and some bad.

True love is acquired
when hearts unite in rhythm
bonding their passions.

Many that we know
are not who we think they are,
but only human.

Believing in God
needs you to also trust Him
for He knows what’s best.

Cherishing money
as well as cherishing things
can form emptiness.

Time is a doorway
with many speeds of travel
that cause us to wait.

Blowing up balloons
you might notice none will fly
without helium.

Mistreating others
can come back to you in time
as karma awaits.

Today’s tomorrow
might look rather gray at times,
but forecasts do change.

The years of ages
paint a picture of lessons
that some never saw.

The tears of a clown
might be painted on for looks
the same as people.

Foreseeing trouble
can often create problems
of which you started.

The gears of a car
can simulate a heartbeat
that needs to slow down.
