I Survived


Hello my friends

I might not finish this until tomorrow/Monday,
but I figured I would start on it today and do as
much as I can.  I had a little fall Saturday and
gashed my left ear pretty badly and my loving
wife bandaged it up for me,  but in the process it
made it hard to sleep being that when I fell I also
busted my left shoulder pretty good and it added
to my sleepless dilemma, being that I’m already
not getting much sleep even before the fall LOL.
I’ll survive.  I’m just real sore.  If I do finish this
journal,  it will be rather short,  but not sure of
the sweet part LOL.  Judy just started doing a
little painting right behind me and I’m anxiously
awaiting to see what she paints 🙂  I love her work.
She just got done with a pretty purple purse and
I’ll put that in my stationery pics along with the
others.  There’s not been much going on around
here that I feel at the time like writing about,
but maybe next week.  The snow is melting at
a slow pace,  but it would melt faster if it were
not snowing like every other day LOL.  I love
snow,  but I hate what’s in the aftermath of it
which is ice and slush.  I went out to check the
mail the other day and got shoes full of water.
Rocky always tries to leap over the puddles to
get on the snow so he can go potty hehehehe.
I had put him out a board to walk across to
get over the puddle to the driveway so that he
could go potty,  but he chose to just leap over
to the snow on the other side, so I went out to
pick up the board and when coming in my shoe
caught on the bottom of the porch door which in
turn made me lose my balance and caused me
to fall into the porches structure which  is in
fact wall beams LOL.  My ear is doing well.
Judy thought I needed to go to the ER and get
it stitched up,  but I told her that I’ve had tons
worse cuts when working and I survived, but
my shoulder is still aching although there is
nothing they or anybody can do for that LOL.
My whole body has been through many slips
and falls especially on ice.  There is no pain
med that works on me,  so I have to deal with
it as always.  God is still watching over us as
the days move ahead.  I feel blessed to have
such a wonderful,  loving and beautiful wife.
We look out for each other.  We feel blessed
to have our little four legged boy with us.  He
always shows us his love for us.  We love him.
I wish that I were nearer or able to travel to
Texas to see my mom,  sister,  daughter and
 granddaughter as well as my friends,  but it
is what it is.  I thank God for always keeping
us under His care.  I know that what ever
happens in my life is meant to happen and
so I trust that God knows best.  Thank You
God for all that You do for us and surely
all that You will do.  Please watch over our
family and friends as well as ones we know
not of.  In Your Name  Amen and Amen.
Now,  I do believe it’s time for me to read
back through 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 lil place
of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may have
found me a decent title just near the center
of all my rambling and now after checking I
see that it has not been used yet,  so used it
shall be today.  Here goes…

I Survived

We might be found
falling day to day
as life commences
in its own little way.
We might stumble
on our own two feet
or lose our balance
when moments meet.
Don’t let the times
to be but only pain
as lessons learned
can gather the gain.
I’ve seen doorways
to Hell and back
that gave me lessons
to get back on track.
So use the moments
that surely arrived
and say through God
that I survived.

I hope you liked my poem and maybe even a
bit of my rambling.  I know it was a little bit
short,  but I am very tired.  So I have nothing
else to tell you other than what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some more poems
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,  it’s time once again for
me to begin my search for that 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,  so where
can that ornery off switch be hiding this time?
Hmm, making it easy for me this time because
you know I’m not doing well huh.  I guess I
should say thank you for hiding behind my
tiny little eyedrops bottle which is sitting right
in front of me hehehe,  So thanks a bunch.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

When Heading Out

Time has surprises
awaiting to show
often as doorways
of rain or of snow.
There might be life
of tormenting days
when heading out
in so many ways.
There may be times
that seem as hills
like snowy paths
with snowmobiles.
The journey may be
but only a breath
breathed for a time
to give you success.
So take it in stride
on your daily route
the lessons to learn
when heading out.

Life in Flight

Just like dreams
the skies unfold
displaying sights
the times foretold.
Maybe as crows
in flight up above
life is as windows
with endless love.
Yet it might hide
in scenic clouds
horrifying times
that fear endows.
Found as designs
in our reflections
darkness abound
seasons infections.
But within life
lives loving light
coming from God
as life in flight.

The Wild of Views

Minds of a season
create doorways
as the wild of views
with daily displays.
Leaving reflections
within a living field
just like an episode
of seconds revealed.
Seeming as turkeys
walking on passed
as the wild of views
is a shadowy cast.
Peace is abundant
with patient shoes
walking with God
in the wild of views.

Dreamer’s Mirage

So often our vision
is blinded by times
found within wanna
as instilled designs.
Formed from scenes
we’ve seen one day
a dreamer’s mirage
in timeless display.
Sought after sights
thought to deserve,
but they’re so often
but only an urge.
Dreaming of things
as a postcard sight
scented of winter
with snow of white.
Open up your eyes
see blessings of life
and find the views
with lesser of strife.
They may be hidden
within camouflage
enticing views of
a dreamer’s mirage.

Stormy Decisions

Looking for errors
in all thereunto
may create many
illusions in you.
A sky might seem
as a holder of rage
stormy decisions
a turn of a page.
Yet it’s within us
the actions procure
storms of moments
regretful contour.
Listen to the truth
God does display
and let the storms
to then fade away.
Open your heart
to heavenly visions
and lessen sight of
stormy decisions.

Flowered Twigs

Some may seem
as truthful sights
seasons breezes
a time delights.
So many may
be empty skies
with their breath
and endless lies.
Yet their stories
might be true
a little hidden
from our view.
Flowers growing
seen all around
so often seeking
a joyful sound.
Seen as shadows
with living flow
flowered twigs
seeking to grow.

Liquid Minds

Flowing waters
life’s living goal
creates a current
of toil and toll.
Fluid is thought
as endless views
flowing as ages
the times infuse.
We can become
a trickling sight
seen as liquids
flowing delight.
God’s creations
are you and I
as liquid minds
that often fly.
Seen as a story
a flock of birds
that may land
in living words.
Heaven’s glory
timeless designs
flows like water
of liquid minds.

Patiently Waiting

Time in a bottle
displayed as a show
becomes a memoir
within winter snow.
We may find others
watching our face
seeking to know us
maybe to embrace.
Patiently waiting
so many stand true
often trying to find
the very best view.
Yet if impatience
becomes our way
moments awaited
might fade away.
So find some peace
through hesitating
and don’t get upset
patiently waiting.

Faded Emotions

Illusions of a sea
with a ship at sail
might just be seen
as a faded detail.
So very faraway
as a timeless stage
in faded emotions
of age unto age.
We might perceive
the waters of time
a rippling essence
within our mind.
It might only be
a scenic dream
created from time
as an ocean theme.
Scented of salt air
echoes of oceans
we might envision
faded emotions.

Winter’s Thaw

We might envision
our life as snow
often just freezing
awaiting to flow.
Springtime awaits
as winter recedes
just like our heart
as seasonal needs.
Life is a painting
moments display
with the seasons
each passing day.
Open your heart
and let love shine
within the seasons
of time after time.
For as the seconds
tick on over all
springtime arrives
after winter’s thaw.

for Mar 18,  2023

The length of desire
is measured in shallow eyes
and what we perceive.

Traveling minutes
are many seconds to gain
as days pass us by.

Yesterday’s shadows
can become today’s moments
if we allow them.

Threading a needle
within a journey thru time
might end up unsewn.

Seeds of a drifter
are spread within their footsteps
and the lives they touch.

On a windy day
time will seem to blow right by
the same as the leaves.

Harboring anger
can create many pathways
for storms to reside.

Breaking a mirror
might only bring you bad luck
if you believe it.

Reasons for lying
can often be good reasons,
but so much is not.

Tallying up time
we might find we are lacking
sooner than we think.

Trespassing on minds
can seed a bad perception
of what you believe.

Tomorrow’s insights
can be made as true to life
if it’s meant to be.

Within a window
there may be many viewpoints
awaiting our sight.

Sitting on the fence
you might find yourself confused
on which way to fall.

Wagering a path
that you think you will go down
you might lose the bet.

Drawing a circle
amidst many passageways
might only amuse.

Years of emotions
can become saddened regrets
within the shadows.

Seeking ones the same
is like flies on flypaper
that want company.

Standing in the rain
you can either enjoy it
or look for the bad.

Seasons of pictures
are found within God’s artwork
painted with passion.

Breathing in deeply
you can often smell the rain
as it falls to Earth.

Needing an answer
too soon after the question
might thrive empty words.
