Shades of White


Hello my friends

It’s been sort of cold up this way and our
water pipes froze.  Right now they are only
frozen in the kitchen and the cold water on
the washer,  so if I wash clothes before it is
thawed and I will have to pour jugs of water
in the washer with the hot water.   Used jugs
of water to wash the dishes.  The cold water
thawed in the main bathroom sink finally :).
Funny thing is, the hot water didn’t freeze in
the main bathroom and I’m happy for that.
All of the other water outlets are doing well.
 Yep,  the other night it got down to -24 with
a wind chill of -60 and my dribbling water
in the spare bathroom did not suffice that,
but it did not freeze.  It just didn’t prevent
the other water from freezing LOL.  Well,
that’s been the excitement here 🙂  I called
our landlord and he is sending his daughter
to help us.  Calvin is not doing well at all.
He can’t walk now and can barely talk,  so
I hated having to call to ask if he knew if
there was someone that we could get to help
us.  He must of called his daughter shortly
after I hung up.  My big concern is busted
pipes,  but so far,  there have been none 🙂
thank God.  Well our landlords daughter
and her boyfriend came by and helped to
maneuver some heaters to where they’ll
get heat on the pipes,  so hopefully they
will thaw soon.  Pam and her boyfriend
just left.  She told me to call her and let
her know if the water came back on.  Her
boyfriend is tall.  Gave me a neck ache
to look at him hehehe and I’m not short.
So,  that’s all about that.  Next topic 🙂
It’s not supposed to get above freezing
until maybe Wednesday,  but just a few
degrees above freezing such as 37 and
then back to freezing.  Yep,  It’s the way
of the north LOL.  I’ve taken quite a few
pictures this passed week and they are all
in shades of WHITE hehehe such as snow.
It’s looking as though we’re gonna get a
few more episodes of snow this week and
that’s no surprise LOL.  We usually get
snow on through March and often into
April.  So,  this is our world as it may be.
I’ve seen many say,  they could never
live in these conditions and that’s OK,
because it’s not for everyone and that’s
for sure LOL.  I love what the snow does
to landscapes and other scenery.  It’s like
a magic wand as it waves the snowflakes
over the surroundings and paintings are
revealed.  Yes,  driving in this mess isn’t
so great,  but then there are a lot of scenes
that I am able to take pictures of when
we drive to town and other places.  Of
course Judy knows how to drive in this
mess and she is cautious LOL also with
me over in the passenger seat always
saying slow down :).  I had one accident
on ice back when I was 16 and that brief
moment will not leave my thoughts LOL.
I’m a worrier,  but I do so enjoy taking
pictures of the scenery created by snow
and I can’t do that with me driving. I’ve
gone on picture taking drives a few times,
but had to stop the car to take pictures
which I could not do if there’s a bit of
traffic LOL.  So then I would just pull
the car over to park it and then get out
and do a picture taking walk.  Anyways,
that’s what goes on up here during the
winter.  Our landlord just called to tell
me of someone I could call to work on
the water pipes,  but he thought I had
not gotten the insulation back in place
behind the underpinning and I told him
that I fixed all of that last summer.  He
said then maybe the heaters on the pipes
will get them thawed.  He’s a good man.
We feel like family,  being we’ve lived
here for 15 years.  God has been good
to us and protects us always.  Judy and
I feel blessed to be together and have
all that we’ve got.  We’re not rich with
money,  but we’re rich with love and
all the moments that we have together.
Thank You God for never wavering in
all that You promised.  Thank You for
sending many angels and kindly spirits
to watch over us and help us when we
are in need.  Please continue to watch
over all our family and friends and the
many that we know not of.  You are
better than the best and we’re grateful.
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 think I might
have found a fairly decent title near the
halfway mark of my rambling and now
after checking,  I see that it has not been
used yet,  so used it shall be.  Here goes…

Shades of White

Life and moments
that fall in place
might often be
God’s saving grace.
The stories created
in scenes of time
might be the shades
of a rhythmic rhyme.
Scenic connections
that we see each day
may be our blessings
in an awesome array.
Scented heartbeats
displayed on a stage
found as emotions
from age unto age.
Told as our actions
heard by our sight
they may be blessings
as shades of white.

There ya go.  It’s a shorty,  but I hope you
liked it.  I also hope you liked and enjoyed
all my rambling or at least portions of it.
Hehehe,  I do know how to ramble don’t I!
So,  I cannot think of anything else to tell
you other than what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poetry and
haiku.  Yep,  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 time for me to begin searching for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but surely
not before I wish you a blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Okey dokey,  so where can that ornery lil
off switch be trying to hide this time.  LOL
it was lazy and didn’t try at all last week.
Where can that silly thing be this time???
Hmm,  not right in front of me like last
week LOL.  LOL I  saw ya peeking from
behind a little sign that mom bought me
years ago when her and Peggy came up.
It says (Worlds Greatest Computer Wiz)
You say you got a cramp and just had
to move hehehe.  Well guess what dude.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Seeming Timeless

Reflections of life
our time displays
can create portals
in so many ways.
Some as windows
and some as dreams
timeless moments
with magical scenes.
Life is awakened
with a smiling face
giving a heartbeat
with warm embrace.
Lovingly feelings
can meet success
within reflections
seeming timeless.

Taken in Stride

Awakened memories
can formulate tears
when coming in view
of the passing years.
Taking in a breath
that becomes a song
found within stride
of a time long gone.
Seasons surmounting
unleash the displays
as scenes of dreams
in wondrous arrays.
We might remember
a very special time
as life’s reflections
inside of our mind.
Thinking of the days
that came to pass
living as the seasons
of a shadow’s cast.
Hearing the rhythms
the times multiplied
life becomes written
and taken in stride.

Seed of Sight

Thinking thoughts
of now and then
a seed of sight
can then begin.
Created from life
a seed of desire
as time moves on
as a heart of fire.
Burning churning
planting a view
as a seed of sight
to begin anew.
Formed as scenes
that we remember
maybe a moment
a glowing ember.
It might be times
as snow of white
within your mind
a seed of sight.

Mirrored Perfection

Trials we encounter
as lessons to learn
often become ripples
of bridges to burn.
Mirrored perfection
lives on in our mind
scenes as doorways
to time after time.
Stages of emotions
contained in a view
often are windows
to a sea of blue.
Found with a story
of our recollection
time is as blessings
mirrored perfection.

Fond Memoirs

Through our life
we might connect
moments in time
that now reflect.
They may survive
in our memories
times and places
beaches and seas.
Seen as a shadow
a glimpse of time
our fond memoirs
within our mind.
The seasons grow
and become seen
as fond memoirs
within a dream.
They may become
just like the stars
the distant sights
of fond memoirs.

Wash Away

Time might seem
to fade from sight
as memories lose
the time of light.
Yet as a moment
like a sand castle
many might only
view as a hassle.
The pain of life
we went through
might just seem
as a time or two.
It might reflect
a season’s gleam
and wash away
within a dream.
Yet it can shine
in a magical way
and never really
just wash away.

Winter’s Parade

Snowflakes falling
time becomes seen
found as a window
to a whitish dream.
Scenery’s pathway
becomes the view
as a road thru time
to then thereunto.
Charismatic flakes
that create a stage
as winter’s parade
from age unto age.
Threading a needle
on through the sky
displaying scenery
as snowflakes fly.
As a magical phase
of heaven’s delight
the snow will shine
blessings of white.
Seen as a moment
that time has inlaid
the show will go on
as winter’s parade.

Sky of beauty
sky up above
is filled with
so much love.
A masterpiece
painted delight
a scene by day
and also night.
It creates life
within the air
a masterpiece
often a glare.
It might seem
as certain gold
a masterpiece
times unfold.
Becoming life
of living peace
sky of beauty
a masterpiece.

Awaiting The Tide

Standing watching
as time moves on
life forms moments
of a scenic song.
Sung as an ocean
with tide rolling in
many are awaiting
for life to begin.
Just like a moment
of a wading bird
a scenic sandpiper
the time’s inferred.
Looking out to sea
seeking for a sight
of the tide to begin
with evenings light.
Seeming as dreams
sought for each day
tide’s are awakened
in a magical way.
Seen as a moment
with hopeful applied
like a sandpiper
awaiting the tide.

Pond of Imagination

Time creates a portal
to sights and sounds
maybe for a moment
that’s seen all around.
It might be as a ripple
or a cosmic emotion
as times imagination
of a miniature ocean.
Breathing as a form
of a dream’s illusions
transforming scenes
into our conclusions.
Thinking of the times
we remember so well
found within a pond
of the stories we tell.
Look deep in the eyes
of a life’s narration
and find blessings in a
pond of imagination.

for Feb 4,  2023

Time can be funny
as it gives us surprises
that we don’t expect.

When walking in storms
you might find a few raindrops
that give us some peace.

Streams of excitement
find ways into our heartbeats
often through a smile.

Today gives us time
that we can use to improve
or to throw away.

Finding a penny
and bending to pick it up
shows you are able.

Truth is a moment
that can turn into a lie
if we wish to brag.

In a field of dreams
you might find a few nightmares
hidden in the weeds.

Watching a shadow
you might think it is alive
until there is light.

We create limits
on what we’re able to do
so often through fear.

Now is a doorway
awaiting us to walk through,
but walk carefully.

Staring out in space
you may lose your perspective
on all that’s on Earth.

Venting your anger
on the people that you love
might push them away.

Many of our dreams
are not meant to become real,
but remain as dreams.

Hopeful desires
can become seasons of time
that became sour.

Forces of evil
are found in many people
that fight for goodness.

Making all one turn
within left ways or of right
you create circles.

Glancing at the sky
you might see artwork fly by
as time paints pictures.

Teamwork is power
for it becomes as just one,
but more powerful.

Tomorrow’s passage
might be hidden in today
waiting to be found.

Scenes that we admire
are often only by us
and our perspective.

Times of solitude
might but only be a place
that is within you.

Traveling mindsets
can find you much confusion
for which is the best.
