Raise My Head


Hello my friends

Yet another week has passed us by and we
still have yet to see too harsh of weather 🙂
Though we know all too well that the things
can change very quickly.  Right now it’s 27
degrees outside and that is Fahrenheit,  not
Celsius or Centigrade.  So it’s a little cold,
but not too bad yet.  The temp is supposed
to drop to 19 F degrees tonight so I reckon
I will need to get the hot water trickling 🙂
so the water doesn’t freeze.  I won’t have
to do that for the most of this week being
the day temps will be in the 40’s and the
night in the mid 30’s and 20’s,  but as it
gets in the lower 20’s I might need to turn
on the hot water to dribble just to be safe.
So,  what else is going on around here??
Well,  we had yet another non eventful
week to come and go other than me at
the eye clinic getting my eyes tested so I
can get me some new computer glasses
being the ones I am wearing have been
sat on and for the passed 2 years I have
continued to wear them,  even though
they are bent down to where I have to
look down and raise my head up to be
able to see through them and it gives
me a neck ache LOL.  My insurance
is paying for them thank God.  Friday
Judy and I went to Walmart and did a
little shopping and then stopped off at
SUBWAY and got us some sandwiches.
So,  yes I did take a few pictures being
we went early enough Friday to pay
bills and what not.  We had to get to
the HWC lights to pay the electric bill
before 4:30,  because it closes then and
also had to get to DOC’s to put money
on our heating oil tab due to the same
time frame.  Things in this small town
do not stay open long LOL and in the
little town of New Limerick where we
live it is even worse,  being we only
have one little store that only carries
the basics and the prices are very high.
Yep,  we live in a little one horse town
and all the farmers are fighting over it.
LOL me just being silly,  but we do live
in a tiny little town with a population
of maybe 500.  It goes up and down 🙂
The town of Houlton where we go to
buy groceries and pay bills is a little
bit bigger though,  but it’s still small
with population of 6000 or so.  Life
in the big world LOL.  It has been an
interesting change of life from that of
my life in Texas.  I never thought for
an instant that I would move out of
Texas and more so never had a thought
of moving to Maine LOL or anywhere
up north,  being I was born and raised
in Texas,  but here I am.  As old Gomer
Pyle would always say LOL – surprise,
surprise,  surprise.  Yeppers Shazam,
look at me now.  By golly I am up here
where the moose are,  but I rarely see
them LOL and have yet to of seen a
male moose with its antlers and we’ve
lived up here for 15 years now.  Maybe
one day hehehe.  Hopefully one day
before I die I’ll see a male moose with
its antlers and more so hopefully I’ll
have my camera to take a picture of it.
Well it’s 5:30 PM now and pitch black
outside.  The temp has dropped a few
degrees.  It’s now 25 F 🙂  Still not too
awful bad 🙂   I am sure that the more
that winter grabs hold,  the lower that
the temps will drop as well we’ll get
snow coming at a regular pace LOL.
I never believe the weather man due
to it being only a guess or forecast 🙂
I do though look out the window and
if I see clouds rolling in and the temp
dropping I will prepare accordingly 🙂
I do keep tabs on my trusty computer
weather radar and all.  LOL my dad
used to tell me that I could forecast
the weather pretty good.  Now even
better with my body acting up with
the changes in weather conditions :).
So,  what else is going on around this
place?   Not much,  Oh yea,  we got
a package yesterday that was from
my daughter and it was a wonderful
surprise.  A beautiful blanket with
their pictures on it and sayings.  I’ll
put a couple of pictures of it in my
stationery.  Of course most of you
won’t see them,  but in that case just
paint a picture in your imagination 🙂
Judy is behind me doing what she’s
been doing for quite some time now
and that is crocheting.  Yep,  we’re an
exciting bunch LOL.  Rocky’s lying in
the floor in front of the door.  I think
he’s resting up to irritate us later LOL.
Anyways,  God is still look out for us.
We feel very blessed to have Him and
many angels as well as kindly spirits
watching over us and giving us help
when we’re in need and we cannot do
it ourselves.  Thank You God for never
giving up on us and also thank you to
all of the angels and kindly spirits for
all that you do.  We know that we can
make it with You and God always here
with us and God I pray that You will
always watch over all of our friends
and family as well as those we do not
know of.  Thank You for the blessings.
Amen and Amen.   Now I do believe
it’s time for me to read 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 lil
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE…
I think I may have found me a good
title just about a quarter of the way
down from the beginning of all of my
rambling and now after checking,  I
see that it has not been used yet,  so,
used it shall be.  Here goes…

Raise My Head

Seeking sunshine
in the rain
often finds life’s
Viewing moments
seeking true
I raise my head
to see the view.
Yet so often
troubles form
creating portals
in a storm.
Then I need to
seek God’s love
from the heavens
up above.
Not allowing
withering sights
to give nightmares
days and nights.
So I now seek
what God said
there’ll be peace
if I raise my head.

Well there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even a little bit of my
rambling 🙂  Hopefully I made ya smile.
Our landlord is out of the hospital and
now sitting in his home with his wife and
daughter.  He’s still not out of the woods
being the stroke made it hard for him to
use his left side,  so please continue with
prayer for him.  Well,  that’s about all I
can think of to tell you this week aside
from what I tell you nearly every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poetry
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems
with 3 of them a little bit Christmassy.
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.  So now I reckon it’s near the time
for me to begin my search for that silly
hardly allusive off switch,  but surely
not before I wish you a blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.   Okey dokey,  so now
where can that ornery off switch be at
this time.  Its hiding skills sort of suck,
but then that’s a good thing,  or getting
this thing done and sent would become
a long drawn out process even more so
than it already is hehehe.  Looking high
and low for that silly contraption I think
I might have seen movement inside my
bag of greeting cards that’s hanging on
the wall in front of me.  Yep,  hehehe,
you still have trouble staying still huh.
I was beginning to think the bag had
turned into a pendulum as it swayed
back and forth,  but then I saw ya peek
out trying to see if I could see ya and
well yeppers,  I saw ya you silly thing 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Shrouds Up Above

Time’s enlightenment
can become a home
a place you discover
as a cloudlike poem.
Written up above you
life’s stories are seen
seeming like shrouds
in a sky of dream.
Living as a journey
a pathway to the stars
driven as a roadway
in many cloud cars.
Roaming across time
as a venture unveils
shrouds up above
display many details.
Created by dreamers
seeking signs of love
many find blessings
in shrouds up above.

Christmases Within

Driving on journeys
of seasons abound
winter shows scenery
in sights all around.
Scenes within snow
and a cloudy sky
create Christmases
in a dreamer’s eye.
Heartfelt moments
become every sight
found as a doorway
to a winter of white.
We might encounter
blessings from above
Christmases within
truly filled with love.
Seeming as shadows
a snowy romance
God gives blessings
our prayers enhance.
Created for a path
to lead us to Him
white of forgiveness
Christmases within.

Clear The Way

When getting ready
to begin your path
you may not need
to travel too fast.
For if you hurry
you may fall down
and become lying
upon the ground.
So take a moment
and look and see
the view that God
gave you and me.
There might be ice
upon your road
with a lot of snow
of a heavy load.
So take the time
to kneel and pray
and God will help
to clear the way.

Dreamful Places

Mesmerizing scenes
time might bestow
as seasonal pictures
when life says hello.
We may view times
that don’t seem real
as dreamful places
upon a windowsill.
The view may form
a scenic emotion
that breathes of life
as a cosmic ocean.
It might be a picture
of a passing array
of a time and place
of a distant day.
A momentary sight
that you remember
that’s a living dream
as a burning ember.
An answered prayer
giving smiling faces
the scenic portrayal
of dreamful places.

Forgetting To Fly

When in a moment
we might not see
the seconds ticking
for you and me.
We might just sit
and drift around
in a scenic moment
or timeless sound.
The splashes of life
a hypnotic scene
might be illusional
found in a dream.
So don’t let things
to fool your sight
such as some water
in snow of white.
It may seem pretty,
but yet be awry
and be the reason
for forgetting to fly.

Catching a Phase

Inside of a vision
so many things flow
time as a storybook
swinging to and fro.
Seasons with pages
that turn in a mind
as catching a phase
to moments in time.
Travels of lifetimes
can become ageless
endless reflections
of momentous ages.
Time is a window
we may see through
finding only stages
of old and anew.
Not seeing hopeful
in a distant wave
many miss the view
of catching a phase.

Wintertimes Before

Throughout the seconds
time may pass us by
leaving only memories
of snowflakes that fly.
Becoming a perspective
of a winter’s array
scented of a moment
that children will play.
There might be scenes
as dreams and illusions
giving the heartbeats
of grandest conclusions.
Centered around life
of a time and place
that for a moment
gives a warm embrace.
It might seem busy
within times you adore
centered around many
in wintertimes before.

Snowflakes Desire

Seek for a blessing
in a whitish style
that brings a glow
of a magical smile.
Take time to look
and see each sight
that might display
as winter of white.
A Christmas story
may live as dreams
snowflakes desire
as living cuisines.
Tasted by our eyes
time might acquire
blessings of flavors
snowflakes desire.

Time is a Road

Travels of lifestyles
become as a flame
burning so brightly
as times to attain.
Candle lit windows
wax dripping down
creating a journey
heartbeats abound.
We might see time
as an endless stage
while time is a road
to seasons of age.
It might be a sight
a memory’s scene
as mere reflections
of a timeless dream.
Lessons of echoes
find place to recoil
if we only travel
within wanted soil.
Look beyond now
and today’s load
for life is a journey
as time is a road.

Finding a portal
to a time and place
might show signs
a warm embrace.
It might expand
to a dreamer’s hue
becoming alive
as a magical view.
Seasons change
and create designs
fortunate sights
memorable times.
Look within you
and find God’s key
that may enhance
your serendipity.

Leaving reflections
within the wrong state of mind
can be destructive.

Days and weeks of life
can often become as our
seasons of regrets.

Looking too deeply
into the problems you have
you might just find more.

Trivial insight
might become your only view
and lose sight of good.

The changes in time
often become as moments
that many will fear.

Laughing at a dream
that a person wishes true
might give you nightmares.

Many dreams and nightmares
crash into one another
and wake us from sleep.

Yesterdays of life
might seem as the very best,
but time loses sight.

Shadows of others
can often live within us
as the good and bad.

Seeking for sunshine
in the midst of thunderstorms
you may find rainbows.

Long lists of options
might give unneeded choices
that bring us trouble.

Lessons from heartbeats
can become as drum solos
if they are not shared.

Seasonal doorways
are often like saloon doors
swinging in the wind.

Wasting a moment
can come and haunt the future
and create despair.

The length of a day
doesn’t always show time frames,
for they’re within us.

Within a forest
many trees might hide a few
keeping them from harm.

When searching a road
you might need to see the line
drawn in the middle.

Raindrops of lifetimes
often fall from needed clouds
to make us stronger.

Clinging to the past
can prevent you from growing
and finding new life.

Greeting a stranger
needs to be done with a smile,
for they might need it.

When hearing thunder
you might of missed the lightning
that came times before.

Thresholds of anger
often become holding tanks
that need emptying.
