The Year Before


Hello my friends

The passed week has been warming and
the snow is gone except in a few places
that the sun doesn’t shine so well such as
within the trees especially the ones that
are in the distance from us.  Yeppers we
have finally acquire Springtime and it’s
getting warmer with each passing week 🙂
Judy and I have been talking about what
we’re going to do this summer like going
to play mini golf and taking a drive down
south of us to the coast and take pictures.
It’s soon to be time for me to move the
snow blowers and put the lawn mower
in the front so that when the grass starts
growing,  I can get it out to do a little
mowing YIPPEE :).  Yeppers,  me and
my allergies will do some mowing LOL.
Our only neighbors will hear me as I
attempt to breathe and mow hehehehe.
Ok so,  what has gone on around this
place in the last week?  Well,  Monday
of last week,  Judy and I went to town
to do a little shopping and pick up a few
of Judy’s prescriptions,  though when
we were heading out we saw some birds
in our driveway that in a way resembled
pigeons,  but they were a blackish gray.
They weren’t afraid of us at all as they
walked up to us and I took pictures of
them.  We still needed to go,  so Judy
and I got in the car and slowly pulled
out of the driveway as the birds walked
out of our way.  They seemed friendly.
I saw them again yesterday,  but when
I ran in to get my camera they were
already headed out to the field and I
could not get a good picture of them.
I’m sure they will be returning being
they seem to feel safe around us.  In
the next few days I’m gonna put the
trail camera that Judy gave me for a
Christmas gift on a tree out in the field
so that hopefully I can finally get me a
few pictures of a male moose with its
antlers and maybe even a few more of
the animals that cross our path 🙂  We
might finally take the drone that she
got me the year before last and learn
how to fly it LOL.  We’re really just
gonna try to enjoy the summer as best
that we can,  though on the days that
the temp is near or above the 80’s I’ll
be staying inside near the AC quite a
bit of the time,  but I might go out and
mow for short spurts and then come
back inside to cool off.   In any case,
we’ll survive.  Judy did a little painting
last night and she did a great job.  I
might use her painting for a poem
in the next few days.  To some of you
we might seem rather boring hehehe.
Yes we may be boring,  but we enjoy
being together.  We have our ways of
enjoying life by just doing our hobbies
and watching TV late at night.  Yep,
we’re no marathon runners and that’s
for sure LOL.  Rocky is doing well,
but he does have days that he’s more
ornery than others hehehe.   Today
he is sleeping in the floor being that
I do not think he got much sleep this
morning due to me and my allergies
keeping me trying to breathe as well
as running back and forth to the old
bathroom LOL.  It seems that there
is nothing that will help my yearly
on going allergies.  I have had them
for many decades and they do wear
me out,  but that’s life.  No matter,
God gives me strength to endure.
Yet of course there are times that it
seems He’s toying with me hehehe.
He knows how much I can handle
much more than I do.  I do though
wish at times He did not see me with
all of that strength and would give me
some help.  It is what it is.  Thank You
God for all that You do for us and
most surely all that You will do.  We
also ask You to put Your blessings
upon our friends and family as well
as people that we know not of.  Send
help where it is needed.  Thank You.
Amen and Amen.  Now I believe it is
time for me to be reading back through
all that I’ve written to see if I can find
a decent 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
may have found me a decent title near
the halfway point of my rambling and
now after checking I see that it has not
been used yet and so used it shall be.
Here goes…

The Year Before

With ages transpiring
in the seconds of time
each year that passes
may live in our mind.
Echoes of a moment
of a time or a place
might then transition
into a smiling face.
Memories heartbeats
sequenced together
can live and breathe
in now and forever.
For as we look back
on loved ones gone
we might recall them
in a timeless song.
A tune on the radio
might open a door
to a time and place
of the year before.

There ya go.  I hope ya liked the poem
and maybe even a little of my rambling.
Oh yea,  Judy went on line and searched
for the name of the birds we saw and it
seems they’re called Rock Pigeons. and
they have found a home here hehehehe.
So what else has gone on around here
that would interest you?  I think I have
told you all there is to tell 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 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 reckon it’s time for me to begin my
search for that silly hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you all a
joyful and blessed week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  OK so
now where can that ornery off switch
be trying to hide this time??????????
LOL I think I saw movement behind
my unopened box of allergy tablets 🙂
Yep,  I might not have seen you if you
had of kept hidden,  but you still don’t
get the concept of stealth do you LOL?
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

The Timekeeper

When day is done
the time ticks on
awaiting seconds
before the dawn.
There may be life
glimmering hues
appraised in time
within our views.
Years might seem
as a cosmic stage
with the sunlight
a turn of a page.
Creating time as
evening’s sleeper
sunlight’s become
the time keeper.

Colors of Sky

The art of a moment
might become alive
filled with the colors
that may then arrive.
Scented as a dream
that thrives up above
a sky of imagination
that’s displaying love.
Becoming memories
written in our minds
as the colors of sky
in awesome designs.
Formed as artwork
the blessings of God
that we should daily
give Him an applaud.
Seek for the peace
with all you perceive
and let His paintings
be breath to breathe.
Feel God’s heartbeat
in sights way up high
sometimes in times
as the colors of sky.

Visions Throughout

The roads we’re on
might have some holes
seasoned with seconds
of our wrongful goals.
Time is like a drifter
with journeys of miles
creating the visions
each season compiles.
Becoming as paintings
with God given scenes
as visions throughout
that are living dreams.
Seek for the blessings
within times of age
and make all the bad
as a turn of a page.
Look in the windows
that life has bestowed
and create a journey
upon your own road.
So often our decisions
 from in ways and out
need us to find beauty
in visions throughout.

Driven Desire

Heading down roads
to wants and wishes
might often become
time’s broken dishes.
When driving around
we might not know
the truth of a place
and where it will go.
Letting our desires
to take hold of time
might in a moment
become a land mine.
Enjoy the journeys
that life gives to you,
but don’t let desires
corrupt your view.
Find what’s in life
to best then admire
but don’t let the ages
be as driven desire.

Clouds of Minds

Thriving perception
of a passing cloud
opens the doorways
to stories so loud.
Then as they gather
the clouds give way
showing emotions
of a passing display.
Creating artwork
paintings of desire
as cloud formations
make life transpire.
As opened windows
with scenic styles
the clouds of minds
may go on for miles.
Displaying glimmers
of peace to attain
so often followed by
down pouring rain.
The same is a heart
that we each bestow
often as raindrops
and maybe as snow.
The passage of life
has many designs
textured moments
as clouds of minds.

Dreamer’s Moon

Night comes softly
as day meets end
welcoming night’s
moonlight friend.
It may be in view
in daylights affair
just like a breath
or a passing flair.
Dancing in the sky
as a ball of light
a bit out of place
awaiting the night.
It might be hidden
by passing clouds
peeking so often
with all it endows.
A dreamer’s moon
with certain glow
becomes brighter
in a nightly show.
Creating scenes
for ones to swoon
nighttime displays
a dreamer’s moon.

Touch of Spring

Flowered scenery
becomes the day
as seasons pass
in a magical way.
A touch of spring
creates with love
stages of blessings
from God above.
Presenting scenes
aromas to smell
an ocean of time
in a wishing well.
It may be a page
from a story book
or a passing sight
on trips you took.
Awaken and see
flowers that sing
songs of seasons
a touch of spring.

Moments Memoirs

The ages of time
may become seen
as just a memory
seeming a dream.
Moments of style
as a country mile
we might envision
with a little smile.
Day dreaming life
of a passing day
that now reflects
a wonderful way.
It continues on
just like the stars
days remembered
moments memoirs.

Whiskered Treeswift

We might often be
or seem like birds
flying in the sky
as tweeting words.
A song up above
sung day to day
enhancing a breath
in a wondrous way.
The bird may seem
a bit out of place
just like ourselves
when face to face.
We might not see
the reasons why
we do as we do
while walking by.
People may stare
and wonder about
all that they see
in our daily route.
They may just look
with thoughts adrift
seeing a bird called
whiskered treeswift.

Shadows of The Mind

Throughout our life
we might find scenes
seeming like shadows
of oh so many things.
Glimmers of evening
as a passing stage
shadows of the mind
the seasons engage.
As an old red barn
with weathered paint
standing as memories
just a little bit faint.
Seeming as a window
to a time and place
romancing our eyes
with time to embrace.
Life is as abundant
as a heartbeat’s tune
rhythms of a passage
of the song of a loon.
You may hear echoes
of a timeless phrase
shadows of the mind
in wonderful ways.
Scented of memories
of a so distant time
now but just a page
shadows of the mind.

for Apr 22,  2023

Now and tomorrow
might show sameness in minutes
that seconds may hide.

Memorized moments
can become less important
than what that is now.

Truth of a daydream
can be that of mere boredom
needing to move on.

Crying over times
that are no longer in view
needs some acceptance.

Times of solitude
can create many nightmares
fueled by aloneness.

Reasons and choices
might get tangled up in life
seeking excuses.

Life’s radio waves
might get lost in reflections
and resume a time.

Years of emotions
can create many pathways
filled with storms of life.

The needs of many
will never be same for all,
for we don’t share minds.

Illusions of time
can often look very real
so carefully seek.

The means for methods
might not have any logic,
but just a wanting.

Leaning on others
can give you strength to make it,
but don’t lean too much.

Tomorrow’s doorway
may not look very good now,
but it’s not here yet.

Withered emotions
can create turbulent times
within a rainbow.

A year of windows
might leave many memories
different than then.

The leaves of autumn
are often just memories
that we remember.

Walking through lifestyles
you will find many pathways
that are not for you.

The journey of words
might have many sentences
that do not make sense.

Errors of our ways
can be the best of teachers
if we survive them.

Staring at the sun
you can most surely go blind
as the same for sin.

Trimming a second
off of a load of minutes
life might look the same.

Trading your belief
for that of not believing
can leave you empty.
