We Know Not


Hello my friends

Another week has come and gone and
January is in its last days.  Just a week
and a half left in it.  So far the year has
not been too bad.  It’s been cold,  but
then,  that’s normal for up here though
it hasn’t been near as cold and we have
not got near the snow that we have had
in the previous years.  Yet of course it
is not over with,  for winter still has a
few months left and we’re expecting a
bit of snow Monday through Thursday.
Monday forecast is for 7.2 inches and
Tuesday is 1.6 inches,  but by the time
Thursday gets here we’re expecting yet
another 6.6 inches which could either
go up our down in totals LOL being
the forecasts are never accurate.  Yep
they either under or overestimate it
pretty regularly being it’s virtually
impossible to guess what the weather
will be exactly especially days ahead.
I do though pay close attention to my
weather radar on my PC,  for it gives
me an idea of what’s to be expected
to a degree LOL.  I always try to keep
an eye on the weather so that I know
when we should do our shopping or
whatever.  Though often it surprises
me hehehe.  Judy and I are going to
Walmart and a grocery store in just
a little bit to do a little shopping so
that I do not have to worry about
digging the car out tomorrow when
it snows LOL.  My old body is not
as in good a shape as it was a few
years ago.  Nope,  my old body has
gotten many fractures and bruises as
well as a few broken bones due to all
of my falls on the ice and such.  I do
have cleats,  but do not wear them
all the time,  being it’s not always as
bad as it is at other times which also
means I am not going to wear them
all the time.  They can cause me to
stumble and fall due to the spikes on
the bottom catching on something
in the house such as carpet.  So that
is how it is.  I just try to check before
I walk out to see if there is ice that I
need to prepare for or just snow,  but
often there is ice hidden underneath
the snow that I cannot see and that
is what I call a surprise as I end up
on my butt LOL.  We’re fixing to
head to town in a little bit,  so I may
have to finish this when we get back,
but I’ll write until then 🙂  Right now
it is 23 degrees and supposed to be
-4 F by
Monday morning.  Yep we’ve
still got the hot water at a slow drip
in the spare room to keep the water
from freezing.  I also have the cold
water at a slow drip just in case 🙂
I guess this is where we head off to
town.  I’ll be back to finish this up.
Well we are back and the roads were
pretty good.  It’s supposed to start
around 10 or 10:30 so I’m
glad we got the groceries before that.
We ended up just going to the IGA
grocery store and not Walmart being
we got everything we needed at IGA.
IGA is Andy’s Foodliner/grocery store.
So we’re safe and warm back at home
and I am going to try and finish this.
I did manage to take a few pictures
this passed week.  LOL Judy took a
few of me after I got done clearing
our driveway and I had snow and
ice all in my hair and in my beard 🙂
The wind direction had a habit of
blowing the snow back on me being
that the directional tube on the snow
blower was frozen blowing right in
front of me.  After I got done I had
me an idea to pour some deicer over
it and that unfroze it,  but it was a
little too late for me LOL.  Anyways
it’s ready for me to use tomorrow
when I feel up to going outside and
snow blow a little :),  but I can take
my time,  plus I have already used a
sharp nosed shovel to chop away the
snow that had frozen into ice and was
making driving in our driveway a bit
tight.  LOL,  Now we can open up the
doors to get in or out without having
to climb over a snow mound :).  That
is what nearly did me in.  Chopping
ice with a sharp nosed shovel was
hard on my shoulders and hands, but
it’s done.  Now all I have to do is use
the snow blower and aim the chute
away from me to where it hopefully
will not blow back in my face LOL.
Thankfully God is still watching over
us.  I ache and suffer through many
ailments,  but God is always with me
giving me the strength to endure all
that I must deal with.  Thank You
God for never wavering in all that
You are.  Thank You for all of the
blessings that I have received and
thank You for always watching over
us and guiding us as well as sending
many angels and kindly spirits to be
with us and help us when we are in
need.  Please watch over all of our
family and friends as well that the
many that we know not of and send
the help when in need.  Thank You.
Amen and Amen.  Now,  I believe
it is time that I began 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.  It looks as though I may
have found a workable title just a
few lines back,  but the proof will
be in the pudding/poem hehehehe.
Here goes…

We Know Not

Things we think
we surely know,
might not be
the way to go.
We might look
and see a light
that seems dim,
but shining bright.
We know not
so many things
such as another’s
ways they bring.
We have our style
that’s only true
that is of me
and is of you.
God created
both you and I
with our ways
and how we fly.
Don’t judge others
unless you know
the facts of them
and way they go,
for we all have
a special spot
that ones may have
but we know not.

Well,  there ya go.  I did a little bit of
automatic writing as I do from time to
time.  I just begin writing what comes
to mind at the moment allowing words
to form together and speak.  I usually
do not have a clue to what I have done
until I read it to myself.  LOL I’m a lil
weird ya know hehehe.  Anyways, I’ve
got a prayer request once again for my
good friend Sara Webb.  Please lift her
to the Lord in Prayer.   She is in really
bad health.  Judy’s sister Barb is doing
fairly well,  so far.  The cancer hasn’t
won.   Please keep her in your prayers
as well.  So that’s about all that I have
for ya other than what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems and 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.  Now with that said I think
it’s near the time for me to begin my
search for that silly hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a
truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Okey
dokey now,  where can that dad burn
off switch be trying to hide this time?
Putting some eyedrops in my eyes as
I search the room for that ornery lil
switch.  Hmm,  Now that my eye is
a bit cleared up I think I see that silly
thing trying to hide behind the letter
that my mom sent Judy and I LOL.
Yep,  the envelope is empty and no
you do not fit within it without you
sort of poking out as well as moving
around rustling the paper LOL.  You
are just too freaking silly hehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Throughout a Lifetime

Thinking of the days
which came to pass
time seems illusional
as pictures in glass.
Framed in our minds
and seen as a dream
throughout a lifetime
as a magical scene.
We might remember
a heartfelt emotion
that sways within us
as a timeless ocean.
Becoming as waves
of the days back then
a picture might form
as a seasonal friend.
Reminding of a stroll
a wondrous design
that keeps reflecting
throughout a lifetime.

Magical Memoirs

The country essence
of a winter white
can seem imaginary
dreamers delight.
Written within us
we may have words
books of moments
that fly like birds.
Scenes such as life
of a country theme
magical memoirs
of a timeless dream.
Life becomes stories
of a scenic design
creating the pages
of time after time.
So many memories
get hidden within
as minutes continue
from now to then.
Transforming sights
from clouds to stars
creating the elating
magical memoirs.

As Wheels Roll

Roads of winter
may show signs
of our shadows
seasonal minds.
Creating a scene
a timeless view
as wheels roll
from thereunto.
So many paths
may come alive
as wheels roll
beneath the sky.
Leaving scenes
with reflections
creating a past
with directions.
Some to places
creating dreams
as wheels roll
into new scenes.
Time will allow
a change of goal
within our life
as wheels roll.

Loving View

Our memories
of now and then
create a stage
to again begin.
Formed from life
that came to be
as loving views
of our history.
Heartbeats beat
of life’s emotion
seeming endless
as an ocean.
Minutes passing
become so alive
as our memories
may then revive.
Allowing times
to come in sight
as loving views
day and night.
Scenic passion
a scenic style
a loving view
a distant smile.
Sweet memories
of old and new
create a scenic
loving view.

From Here To There

Looking for answers
seeking for sights
leading to moments
our heart delights.
A footbridge of time
can open a door
and give your eyes
new life to explore.
Creating a journal
as a story in time
all sewed together
alive in your mind.
Maybe as an essence
of a little prayer
within a heartbeat
from here to there.

Glare of Light

Evening’s sunshine
becomes a glare
a sight of lifetimes
true love affair.
It creates illusions
scenic emotions
that become as
a heart’s devotions.
The glare might be
but only a design
bright and shining
inside your mind.
Heavenly pictures
a true work of art
as a glare of light
inside of our heart.
Seeming as angels
within the phase
the light becomes
the hope for days.
Seasons that pass
evolve into a sight
blessings from God
as a glare of light.

Heartbeats of Time

Yearning for places
of faces perfections
time paints a way
in many directions.
Creating pathways
to heartbeats array
continuing scenes
from day unto day.
Providing a breath
to breathe in deep
helping a sleeper
awaken from sleep.
Oh so many people
will lose their mind
not seeking truly
heartbeats of time.

Snowy Reflections

Life is as portals
connections inlaid
scented of seasons
time’s lemonade.
So many seconds
will become views
snowy reflections
of scenery’s hues.
Snowflakes of life
become as dreams
as they fall down
and create scenes.
Heavenly artwork
blessings of time
become as a stage
pages of rhyme.
Written as a book
to read at night
snowy reflections
a season of white.

Dream Sailing

Early morning seas
bring forth a sight
maybe a few clouds
amidst the daylight.
Words as whispers
of a simple breeze
form the storyline
of deep blue seas.
Salt air is a breath
in the morning gaze
scented of emotion
of the gentle waves.
Time becomes seen
as a book of pages
when dream sailing
into scenes of ages.
Formed as a sight
that life’s detailing
this can come alive
when dream sailing.

Closing My Eyes

Peace comes in view
with an opened mind
and not seeking only
all the errors of time.
Search within dreams
of much better views
and you’ll find peace
to most surely infuse.
I close my eyes tight
and open up a dream
allowing the seconds
to formulate a scene.
One that is magical
with four legged rides
that’s of some horses
when closing my eyes.

for Jan 21,  2023

Things we dream about
can often become nightmares
if we dream too much.

Years of emotions
held within our memories
can come flooding back.

Teaching what we know,
but yet do not understand
can create problems.

Divulging secrets
that were better off hidden
might form some regrets.

Disturbing issues
that we may see in our life
can live in our minds.

Time is a painter
as it paints many pictures
in the days gone by.

Within the shadows
many might find illusions
that install much fear.

Windows of our minds
can create many doorways
that give and take life.

When proving yourself
don’t stumble upon factoids
that you do not know.

Choosing a pathway
often needs a bit of faith
as well as patience.

Many trials in life
are created by our path
and choices we make.

Yesterdays problems
can become greater today
if we ignore them.

Putting up fences
can keep out many problems,
but hold in sadness.

Teaching life blindly
and not knowing by living
can become fruitless.

Living reflections
are found in our memories
thriving as heartbeats.

Heartbeats of shadows
often have rhythms of time
that you one day saw.

Texting a story
without saying any words
the blind may not hear.

Years of decisions
become echoes of choices
some good and some bad.

Freeing up our boat
from a dock of illusions
can give hope for peace.

Shattering a glass
that was full of bitterness
may need a new glass.

Looking back in time
we might see ourselves stumble
and find the lessons.

Resembling others
does not make us as others,
but just a glimmer.
