These Gifts


Hello my friends

Well I’m a day late with my journal being
that we went up to Caribou yesterday to see
off our grandson Christian as he’s moving
down to southern Maine and it might be a
while before we see him again.  He’s going
to be missed,  but then he has already been
missed as he is all grown up and he stays
busy with his life working and such.  Judy
and I miss the times that he would come to
spend the weekends with us and we would
all watch videos together and just have a
great time.  Yep,  sadly to say,  those days
are gone and now but only great memories.
I hope you’re doing well.  If you’re not I
pray that my journal gives you some peace.
So at this moment I am thinking of what
to fix Judy and I
for breakfast.  I put some
laundry in the washer just a bit ago.  The
laundry hamper was getting fuller than I
like it to be.  My journal might be a little
shorter than normal this week,  being I’ve
got other things to do,  but hopefully I’ll
find enough stuff to keep you entertained.
For those of ya wondering,  yes we’ve still
got tons of snow outside.  The wind has
been blowing rather hard all morning and
it is still blowing rather hard now at 3 PM.
I hope our house doesn’t blow apart before
I can get out and do a few repairs on it this
summer.  I would say spring,  but we often
have still got snow through springtime 🙂
I just walked out to get the mail and yes
it is snowing and with the wind blowing
it made for a chilling walk.  It’s 33 degrees
right now which is not all that bad,  but
joined with the wind,  it makes it feel a lil
colder.  We just got done eating and now
it’s back to writing.  I took a few pictures
last week and I will share a few of them in
my stationery hehehe and also send them
to my mom.  So OK,  I took more than a
few pictures,  but still,  I’ll only be able to
share a few in the stationery LOL.  I’ll be
back next Sunday to write a bit more,  but
until then,  this’ll have to do hehehe as I’m
needing to write some poetry and do some
poetry pictures today.  God has given me
this ability and I try my very best to use it
as well as possible.  Of course I can see no
end to my writing until maybe I die or I
get Alzheimer’s.  I have already done well
over 14000 poems and 3500 of them are
poetry pictures.  Yep it seems God planted
thoughts in me that seem to always make
themselves known through poetry hehehe.
I do though wish at times I could shut my
thinker down for a while so I can rest,  but
it seems that no matter where I am,  I am
writing poetry in my mind.  Thank You
God for this ability that you have endowed
me with.  Many blessings have arisen thru
my peace with poetry.  If it weren’t for my
gift,  I would maybe go nuts up here in this
snowy wonderland.  Writing helps me to
search within me to find a spark of peace
that I can put in words and poetry pictures
has taken that a bit further.  I am thankful
that You have given me these gifts.  I pray
that You always watch over us and protect
us from the harms of life.  Also I pray that
You look after mine and Judy’s family’s
as well as our friends and ones that we do
not know of.  Thank You for all that You
do and surely all that You will do.  AMEN.
Now I do believe it’s time for me to be
reading 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.  I think I may have
found a title about a 3rd of the way back
in my rambling and now after checking I
see that it has not been used yet and so
used it shall be.  Here goes…

These Gifts

The lives we lead
can often be
the very same
as our history.
Gifts from God
are often found
here and there
and all around.
These gifts live
in our memories
as time unwinds
oceans and seas.
Find the views
within a scene
gifts from God
a living dream.
Allow your heart
life’s living shifts
to find the times
within these gifts.

Okey dokey,  There ya go.  I hope that
you liked the poem and maybe even a
little of my rambling 🙂  I have a prayer
request once again for our landlord 🙂
Calvin is not doing well at all.  Please
continue to pray for him.  He’s a good
man.  His wife is also not doing well,
so please put in a prayer for her also.
That’s about all I have for ya this time.
So 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 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?  Hmm,
looking in many of the recent hiding
spots.  Nope,  not there.  LOL  I see
ya.  You just couldn’t stand waiting for
me to find ya could ya hehehe.  You
just had to poke out and around the
router antennas.  Oh so you say that
you had a cramp and just needed to
stretch.  LOL whatever ya silly thing.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Patches of Snow

When winter ends
it leaves its face
patches of snow
seen every place.
Snow lives on
as pools of drink
lakes and rivers
times to rethink.
So many sights
as scenic dreams
patches of snow
creating streams.
The times define
the seasonal style
many memories
with a little smile.
Springtime awaits
with scenic flow
often as memoirs
patches of snow.

Views of The Sun

Singing a sweet song
as an evening view
time creates scenery
in a sky of blue.
Maybe a slight glare
on snow of white
moments live on
as a sunshine sight.
The views of the sun
are blinding scenes
living perspectives
reflecting dreams.
Thriving as a story
awaiting to be told
the views of the sun
are as scenic gold.
God is the painter
the creator of time
flowing through life
as a poetic rhyme.
The clouds above
are His to display
time after time
in a magical way.
Look at the beauty
that God has begun
as all the creations
and views of the sun.

Sharing Minds

Storms of moments
become our sight
as the pages turn
to winter of white.
Many will dream
of a distant array
a summery feel
that’s so far away.
We share views
our hearts desires
often with others
by fireplace fires.
Seeking a dream
of a time or two
that then is not
within our view.
Minds can become
a dreamer’s book
found within pages
of a wanted look.
Find you someone
with same designs
and breathe life
in sharing minds.

Pool of Reflections

Finding pebbles
in waters of time
creates reflections
found in the mind.
For as the pebbles
awaited your sight
they also awaited
the day and night.
Pebbles of seconds
in a day
can be our dreams
in a magical way.
Formed from life
as ripples viewed
creating elating
moments infused.
Seen in the waters
might be yourself
reflections of time
you left on a shelf.
Look even deeper
in the recollections
and find peace in a
pool of reflections.

Magenta Unfurled

Remembering times
of a cloudy array
life gives reflections
as a photo display.
Found full of color
this sweet memory
is enhanced by time
by the way we see.
Memories may fade
as time moves along
and create a phase
as a rhythmic song.
Sung with harmony
of morning’s wind
filled with a rhythm
that times transcend.
Awakening scenes
as magenta unfurled
that God’s created
in this living world.

Seeking The Sand

We’re often walking
heading to a place
a time to continue
sought to embrace.
An hourglass forms
scenes within style
leaving footprints
in memories smile.
We might even see
ourselves in the past
as seeking the sand
of shadows to cast.
Creating a moment
to hold in our hand
to play a little tune
as seeking the sand.

So Many Views

Now and again
we often find
reflected scenes
points in time.
The stage is set
and it awaits
with many views
of opened gates.
Styles are found
as just an age
of so many views
a turn of a page.
We might seek
many things
walking onwards
 for our dreams.
Thriving minds
of daily news
might discover
so many views.

Ocean of White

Within our winters
life is a doorway
as snowflakes fall
in a whitish display.
Creating patterns
as the snow settles
and forming scenes
as snowflower petals.
In yesterday’s eyes
we might perceive
a winter of white
as breath to breathe.
It might be times
recalled as dreams
that surely enhances
each ocean of scenes.
We might even see
a magical view
a blinding sight
that shines like new.
Snow is a mirror
reflecting sunlight
creating our dreams
in an ocean of white.

Awakening Eyes

A little walk
provides a view
as time passes
from old to new.
Teems of stories
may surely say
words of wonder
from day to day.
Allow your mind
to walk and see
the times of life
through history.
A plant may grow
with many leaves
filled with stories
a passing breeze.
Seek the blessings
within the skies
with your heart’s
awakening eyes.

Untethered Views

So many may see
a time and sight
as a scary shadow
seen in the light.
Maybe reflections
of a time or two
or maybe just us
and how we view.
The visualizations
might be our eyes
and not the sight
of a times demise.
There may be life
that is hid away
living awaiting
a brand new day.
The same may go
for others in life
that are awaiting
the end of strife.
A prayer can give
a breath to infuse
creating peaceful
untethered views.

for Mar 4,  2023

Meeting confusion
you might see a reflection
that’s coming from you.

Time creates pathways
to choose for our direction
or simply ignore.

Within ones breathing
there is a heartbeat of life
that some try to hide.

Looking through glasses
you might find misconceptions
due the wrong glasses.

Fields of illusions
might have some reality
hidden deep within.

Holding to a lifestyle
that you found in younger years
can build destruction.

Growth is found in time
as seconds and minutes pass
leaving lessons learned.

We all make mistakes,
but it’s what you do with them
that shows what you learned.

Allowing a moment
to be all that you can see
can create problems.

Problematic minds
will create many struggles
out of delusions.

Fortitude of minds
can find ways to carry on
even when depressed.

Tomorrow’s doorways
are awaiting our footsteps
to enter or not.

Years of decisions
pool together forming life
either bad or good.

The chances we take
can either make or break us,
but some need taken.

Focusing on things
and not the way you’re living
can create troubles.

Years create shadows
that often come back to life
when they are ignored.

Throughout the future
we might confuse price with time,
for many things changed.

Taking a picture
of moments to remember
can give future smiles.

Dancing throughout life
you might find ones to dance with
that can’t dance at all.

Yearning for ones things
you might not know their price
and the misery.

Many dreams that we have
are meant to remain as dreams
and not become true.

When searching the stars
you might fall into a dream
as stardust gives sleep.
