Hope and Peace


Hello my friends

I hope you had a merry Christmas or
whatever it is you celebrate.  I wish you
all a happy New Year.  Let’s make this
year to blossom hope and peace for all.
Yep,  today is the beginning of the new
year and I’ll be having to be careful not
to sign my poems and all with the year
2022 LOL.  It usually takes me a while
for the new year to sink in LOL.  It will
maybe within a week or so 🙂  Oh well,
welcome to the year 2023.  I thought I’d
be dead and gone long before this year
crept in hehehe.  Yet,  here I am still at
it driving people crazy LOL.  So what
can I remember from the passed weeks
that is worth telling?  Well,  Judy and
I had a great Christmas.  There wasn’t
much gift giving other than of our love.
I did Judy a nice little Christmas poem
and she gave me a trail camera to put
out on the trees when the weather gets
better,  so that we can maybe catch a
few pictures of animals that come and
go during the night and day.  I might
even finally get me a picture or two of a
male moose with antlers hehehe.  After
15 years you would think I would have
already gotten a picture of one,  but
nope.  I’ve got a few pictures of female
moose with their babies,  but none of
a male moose with antlers.  The males
or bull moose might be a little camera
shy LOL.  Anyways,  if there is one or
two roaming about this year,  I might
finally get a few pictures of them LOL.
The weather has not been too bad other
than a wind storm that came through
last week that almost blew us away 🙂
I’m going to have a lot of repairs to do
on the house when summer gets here 🙂
Hopefully we don’t have another storm
to come through like that passed one.
I’m not sure if our house can handle
it.  Oh well,  nothing we can do about
it.  I am not about to climb a ladder in
the snow with the ladder leaning against
the house.  That will have to wait until
spring or better yet summer,  being that
we often still have snow in spring.  The
temperatures haven’t been too bad yet,
but I am sensing that they will be doing
their thing soon and dropping to 0 and
down below.  We still have over a half a
tank of heating oil,  so it looks like we
will survive one more month before we
have to refill and hopefully by that time
the heating oil prices will have dropped
to a lower price.  In any sense we will
be OK.  We have plenty of electric style
heaters for back ups as well as plenty
of covers to cover up with in bed if we
get cold LOL.  We had to do that when
that storm came through being that it
knocked out the electric for about 8
hours or so and it was one of our many
cold nights in the lower teens.  There
is a draw back to losing electric aside
from the obvious,  but the other is that
we are on well water and it doesn’t work
without electricity LOL.  We have many
jugs of water stored up for that purpose.
Judy went to her sister’s house Christmas
Eve,  but I stayed home.  I wasn’t feeling
much like being in a crowded house,  so
it was just Rocky and I here at home till
she got home near midnight Christmas
Eve.  We watched some Christmas movies
most of the night until near Christmas
morning hehehe.  Last night or should I
say New Years Eve,  Judy and I sort of
forgot about it until I mentioned it was
12:30 AM and Happy New Year hehehe.
We watched a few of our favorite TV
programs and then we went to bed near
4 AM 🙂 and watched an episode of Yogi
Bear and then put on some music and
went to sleep or at least she did.  It takes
me a few hours to finally nod off and get
an hour of sleep.  In other words I do not
get much sleep and I have sort of gotten
used to it after dealing with it for nearly
30 years LOL.  Life continues on hehehe.
We’re a lively bunch ain’t we hehehehe!
I did get a lot of great pictures to share
and to use for my poetry.  We drove up
to Caribou the 21st to deliver Christmas
gifts and then Judy and I went down to
Bangor for a doctor’s appointment and
I took pictures there and back as I do
for most every drive we go on hehehehe.
God has been good to us and protected
us.   We can feel His mighty spirit with
us as well and many angels and kindly
spirits that are among us.  Our home is
most surely blessed.  We know that we
have many blessings as we were blessed
with each other.  I pray that you allow
God into your life and your heart.  He
can make good from the most turbulent
storms.  Thank You God for all that
You have done for us and most surely
all that You will do.  Please watch over
our family and friends as well the many
that we do not know.  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 place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  LOL I think I found me a good
title just a couple of lines down from
the beginning of my rambling and now
after checking,  I see that it has not been
used to my surprise 🙂  So used it shall be.
Here goes…

Hope and Peace

Years pass us by
leaving reflections
seasons of scenes
in many directions.
Life enters through
and creates sights
as pages of a book
in black and white.
The words are seen
and often not heard
as ones may pray
for a peaceful word.
Hoping for a dream
to come and flow
changing nightmares
to a heavenly snow.
The flakes of white
falling with ease
delivering stages of
hope and peace.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even my rambling 🙂
I haven’t got much else to tell you other
than what I tell you nearly every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.   Yeppers,  10 poems with
7 Christmas poems in the mix.  I also
wrote 22 more haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find 1
or 2 of either or both that you like a bit.
Now with that said,  I reckon it’s time
for me to begin my search for that silly
hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a happy New Year filled with
blessings.  Stay safe and well.  So OK
now,  where can that dad burned off
switch be trying to hide this time LOL?
It’s had an extra week to try to find a
good hiding spot,  but now as I look
around the room,  my eyes have noticed
a little bit of movement in an old spot
that the silly thing has hid before and
yeppers,  I see ya.  Hiding behind my
nose spray again hehehe.  You are silly.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Travels of Heart

On beyond roadways
time moves along
as seasons of scenes
sing a sweet song.
Singing of Christmas
and singing of peace
as the travels of heart
most surely increase.
Life is a doorway
to blessings of time
as each season comes
with their design.
Traveling mindsets
can often look passed
and not see blessings
while driving too fast.
Slow down your life
and enjoy the view
allowing the scenery
to thrive within you.
Don’t let the worries
to tear your life apart.
Take joy in scenery
of travels of heart.

Peace To Fulfill

A mistletoe moment
as sweet as wine
can create blessings
for souls to dine.
With minds of desire
in hopeful scenes
Christmastime comes
enhancing dreams.
As sugarplum fairies
in children’s minds
life then becomes as
wondrous designs.
Scents of Christmas
will surely instill
as God sends us love
for peace to fulfill.

Timeless Memories

Throughout our life
we often may find
memories becoming
an awesome design.
Seasons reflections
might seem as gold
as that of stories
of young and of old.
Timeless memories
ignite living flames
giving us heartbeats
that life then attains.
Seconds are counted
as minutes pour in
creating turnstiles
for life to transcend.
So many moments
may seem as waves
within living oceans
of scenic arrays.
Becoming a season
of a wintery breeze
Christmas enhances
timeless memories.

Eve of Perceptions

The sight of night
becomes as scenes
as day finds end
becoming dreams.
Life is a painting
with magical views
seasons of sights
with so many hues.
So much scenery
as timeless pictures
eve of perceptions
colorful mixtures.
Thriving in times
of the passing days
time moves along
in wonderful ways.
Moments perceived
may be reflections
heavens blessings
eve of perceptions.

A Season Rings

Sounds of blessings
songs of an age
seasons become as
a changing stage.
Actors of moments
might interweave
as the seasons ring
of time to perceive.
Many might change
their daily view
and find for a time
their needs to do.
The song of love
the song of peace
rings of blessings
timeless increase.
A Christmas mind
shouts and sings
songs of a moment
as a season rings.

Windows of Memories

Scenery of doorways
to windows of time
often have viewpoints
that stay on the mind.
Scented of a seasonal
time that carries on
windows of memories
like a Christmas song.
Sounds of a moment
that comes in view
as a page from stories
that of old and anew.
Christmastime tunes
playing on a radio
the songs you’ve sung
the same as years ago.
That wondrous time
that echoes of love
windows of memories
given from above.
It’s special moments
are deep as the seas
reflecting as a mirror
windows of memories.

My Special One
(Judy’s poem)

I found one day
so long ago
my special one
in living flow.
She gave a smile
and love to me
a Christmas gift
through history.
It feels at times
 just like a dream
found in Heaven
a magical scene.
Sharing moments
of which connect
with some silly
the times detect.
An ugly sweater
or a real silly hat
my special one
is where it’s at.
She is my wife
second to none,
for she is truly
my special one.

Scenic Expressions

Seeming as painted
time may portray
scenic expressions
of a wintery day.
Life might become
artwork of peace
with a scent of love
as season’s release.
Stages of journeys
the seconds create
live on as shadows
of a time and date.
Heavenly blessings
living impressions
become reflections
scenic expressions.

Driving To The Sky

Limited perceptions
might not see time
as it comes and goes
as rhythmic rhyme.
Wheels of life turn
and roll over sights
that many don’t see
in days and nights.
Formulated scenes
of a driven force
can create windows
filled with remorse.
Drive with dreams
of a virtual place
as a timeless scene
with a smiling face.
Let God help you
find the right path
seeking for truthful
shadows to cast.
You may then find
that you can fly
with your blessings
driving to the sky.

for Dec 31,  2022

Now meets an ending
as the minutes pass us by
leaving memories.

Seasons are doorways
that open and close in life
creating artwork.

Beginning journeys
needs a little bit of thought
of which way to go.

Vintage passages
can often hold memories
of timeless shadows.

Today’s tomorrow
might uncover some mistakes
that we wish to change.

Yearning for blessings
that others may have in life
you might miss your own.

Troubles that we have
can be the greatest lessons
if we don’t give up.

Standing in the midst
of a deep puddle of time
you might need to move.

So many chances
might seem to be not so fair,
but it might be you.

When treading water
in a problematic lake
you need to seek shore.

Seeds of a heartbeat
are spread in the winds of smiles
and watered by love.

Struggling with outcomes
that life so often gives us
may need acceptance.

Yesterdays hardships
are often necessary
to make us stronger.

Legions of worry
can create armies of fate
that peace could have stopped.

Searching tomorrow
for what today has to give
will leave you empty.

Twiddling your fingers
leaves choices open to fail
as you do nothing.

Time is an ocean
with choices beneath the waves
that we might not see.

Years might pass us by
before we see what we had
and did not know it.

When talking too much
and not hearing others speak
we might miss the point.

Throughout history
we create many mistakes
that others learn from.

Hardships of a tree
can be with roots of time
if they’re not watered.

Living batteries
are as the air that we breathe
that fills up our lungs.
