Not Too Far


Hello my friends

I hope you’ve had a good weekend
as September has slipped away and
October is now upon us.  I am very
glad that it has cooled down.  Right
now at 7 PM it’s 60 degrees.  Not too
bad 🙂  The grass isn’t growing as fast
as it had been and that is giving me
a break on the mowing.  Although
I’m sure that real soon the snow will
begin falling and in time I’ll have to
start using our snow blowers 🙂  But
it won’t be hot no more 🙂  Nope,  it
will be freezing temps LOL.  As long
as a snow plow comes and plows our
driveway up to our car,  I can take
care of the rest or at least I can if my
health doesn’t deteriorate to much
more.  Time will tell.  Judy is doing
well at this moment.  The doctors
are making plans on her surgery to
hopefully remove the cancer from
her lung.  I will have to be waiting
on her hand and foot for quite while
when that all begins.  I hope I hold
up to do all I need to do.  Please
keep us in your prayers.  Rocky is
still Rocky LOL,  ornery as he can
be.  He’s our little alarm clock that
wakes us when he thinks we that we
have slept long enough :).  We often
tell him to go and lay down,  but he
is persistent as he gets up again and
again to tell us to get up and join him
in the computer room hehehe.  Yep,
he wants his
morning treats/breakfast.
Rocky keeps us on our toes with his
antics LOL.  There are a few times
especially at night that it seems that
he is playing with someone,  which
we think may be the spirits of his
brothers that passed.  He acts like
he is playing chase.  We’re sure that
Benny and Milo’s spirits are with
us.  They are family.  I’ve taken a
few pictures of the cows and horses
that we see on our trips to Walmart.
Some of the pictures have came out
quite well as I have driven over to
the places and parked the car and
walked to take pictures of them.  It’s
hard to get good pictures of them all
when Judy is driving hehehe.  They
never stay in the same spots and are
often in not so great places to get
a good picture  unless I get out of
the car and walk to take pictures.
Monday will be our 22 wedding
anniversary,  although we will have
to wait till
Tuesday to go out to eat
being we are broke.  Oh well,  we’ll
go out to eat
Tuesday and celebrate
when we get our SS payment :).  Yep
we live an exciting life huh hehehe!
Not much of any excitement ever
goes on around here.  I am hoping
to take a drive one day soon when
the autumn colors start to shine and
take some pictures.  Of course they
are not changing yet.  There are one
or two trees that have gotten an
early start,  but for the most of it
the rest are still yet to change.  They
may have  in other areas/states,  but
not here.  I’ve been using a few of
my pictures of years passed to write
some autumn poems,  but I haven’t
done many.  I doubt I will publish
any more books unless the 14 that
I have published start selling.  It
just seems a waste of time to spend
hours formatting into PDF and such
and doing all the work if they are
never going to sell.  Oh well LOL
life goes on.  I might one day get in
the mood to publish a few more of
my books,  who knows.  Anyways,
God is still watching over us,  even
if at times it might not feel like it.
There are many times that I’m sure
that He just lets us do our thing as
He knows lessons will come of it or
it will make us stronger.  I can see
a few times in my life that He has
most surely intervened,  because I
would be dead.  There have been
many times that the doctors have
been amazed that I am still alive.
According to many of my doctors
I should be dead.  There is no way
possible in their eyes that I should
be alive.  But then God does not
see it that way.  I will die when He
is ready for me to leave this worn
out body.  LOL and I kind of hope
it’s not too far off,  but it’s up to
Him,  not me 🙂  Thank You God
for all that You have done for us
as we have traveled thru our life.
We know that many angels as well
as kindly spirits are watching over
us.  I now pray that God is always
with you and many angels and such
are watching over you.  May each
day bring you a ton of blessings.
Now,  I do believe it’s time for me
to be reading back over all that I
have 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 off I go,
to that lil place of my recollection
that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I may have found
a fairly decent title just a few lines
back and now after checking I see
that it has not been used as of yet,
so used it shall be.  Here goes…

Not Too Far

Through out life
we often perceive
ways we’re wanting
our time to weave.
Due to misfortune
and troubled arrays
our not too far
goes too many days.
Yet it’s up to God
our time and place
for it’s not too far
for His saving grace.
He gives the paths
we’re to walk upon
that we might view
as a little too long.
Look for the lessons
God gives your time
and try to carry on
with a hopeful mind.
So if you’re feeling
like a burned out star
know that God’s plan
is surely not too far.

Well,  there ya go.  Yes I too get a bit
disgruntled time to time.  I am human
ya know LOL. Of course I know a few
that might argue that point hehehehe.
LOL a few of my doctors could swear
up and down that I was not from Earth.
Anyways,  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even a little of my rambling.
I guess that’s about all I have for you
this week of course other than what I
tell you nearly 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 🙂   With
that said,  I reckon it’s time for me to
begin searching for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loved you and we do too 🙂
Now,  where can that silly off switch
be trying to hide this week LOL?  As
if it ever tries very hard to hide.  Hmm
as I look once again around the room
I think I spotted movement behind
my back scratcher that I might add is
very thin and I think that switch might
of just at the last moment said Hey,
I’ll hide here hehehehe.  I can see you
very clearly you silly thing.  Here’s an
idea,  maybe spend the week looking
around the room for hiding spots,  but
not too good of hiding spots,  because
I want to be able to find you so I can
get these things sent hehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Keeping The Beat

Facing the minutes
as seconds arrive
the rhythms of time
may be in our eyes.
Finding a moment
that falls in place
that’s found in beat
of times we embrace.
Formed as a season
of a secular motion
a rhythm of time
just like the ocean.
Waves seen crashing
on a distant shore
where some walk on
seeking to explore.
Yet there might be
a rhythm of style
created like a breeze
with a gentle smile.
Drum beats playing
on a beach of time
seeming an illusion
found in your mind.
The music of then
may seem to repeat
displaying moments
keeping the beat.

Maybe a Train

Seen in a moment
a view might become
a train of existance
with an echoing hum.
It may be a memory
or just a caboose
as a train passes by
real hard to deduce.
Yet in the moments
a train whistle blows
giving you wording
of its own hellos.
Speaking as a dream
or an imagination
it is maybe a train
or just a destination.
We all tend to dream
of things so sincere
as sights and sounds
that we see and hear.
Fluctuating turnstiles
that times do attain
might be an illusion
or maybe a train.

Flying Through

Clouds of images
create and deploy
scenes within time
moments employ.
Seasons of sights
times we may see
might have a few
of life’s history.
Living as a stage
you may perceive
a moment’s view
as a web to weave.
You might see life
as a helicopter
flying high above
as scenes to offer.
Giving us a sight
of blessings anew
a moment to share
just flying through.

Standing Guard

The reflections of life
can often be seen
standing guard
in a heartfelt dream.
Holding their own
as time continues on
with hearts of love
that’s never gone.
Time might come
and remove a sight,
but love lives on
with day and night.
It might seem vague
this timeless view,
but still be clearly
holding on to you.
Continued blessings
as living flames
still standing guard
as love remains.
The same as angels
for you and me
giving protection
we might never see.
These are the ones
time didn’t discard
for they’re still here
and standing guard.

Stages of Summer

Flowers of hours
become as a stage
actors of a season
a turn of a page.
Thriving as colors
the flowers desire
seasonal moments
become as a fire.
Burning of beauty
as seasons unfold
creating a pathway
for eyes to behold.
Forming blessings
God gave us to see
as stages of ages
of times history.
Search for a view
filled with wonder
found within time
stages of summer.

An Afternoon’s Sight

A passage of water
might surely bestow
how time’s collected
preventing its flow.
The same is for us
as we go thru time
an afternoon’s sight
may be a land mine.
Preventing choices
of our ways to fulfill
time is like a river
our problems instill.
Look for the answers
to the rivers of time
and don’t let clutter
to fill up your mind.
Life is like a droplet
of water to drink
flowing as a moment
with things to think.
Blessings might pour
as God’s Holy light
found in moments of
an afternoon’s sight.

Words of an Ocean

Waves rolling inwards
create and display
the words of a story
within a magical way.
Time is as a doorway
to another dimension
as breezes form styles
of a scenic invention.
Showcasing moments
as true works of art
becoming as the ages
that waves do impart.
An ocean has a heart
within a seasonal sun
beating of the scenes
the waves have begun.
A seafarer’s lifetime
is heartfelt devotion
spoken as a storyline
words of an ocean.

Below The Blue

There may be sights
you pass each day
eluding your vision
as you go your way.
You might even see
sights all around
then missing views
the best to be found.
Maybe seen vague
as a time and place
a passage of scenes
found out of phase.
A blue sky above
displays the sights,
but often our mind’s
a dream of delights.
Thinking of things
not seeing the view
the beauty of God’s
seen below the blue.

September Stage

Performance of life
becomes as a view
with actors of ages
and a sky of blue.
September styling
opens up a door
displaying scenery
for us to explore.
Maybe as shadows
that seem surreal
a September stage
the minutes reveal.
Counting seconds
scenes fade away
becoming essence
of a new display.
Time is a passage
moving age to age
so often becoming
a September stage.

Times Countrified

Driven as doorways
life comes in view
forming the windows
for us to look thru.
Country perceptions
of a scenic display
may gather as horses
in a magical way.
Hoofprints of echoes
created within style
might be a memory
for our future smile.
Thinking of seasons
that became a dream
sights of a doorway
to a heavenly scene.
Given as a portal
that lives deep inside
found as perception
of times countrified.

Turning too often
you might find many circles
if you continue.

Styles of decisions
can be helpful or hurtful
as it’s up to us.

Time is the keeper
of our many memories
we sometimes forget.

Leaving our footprints
in the shadows of our life
might form confusion.

Stood in a pothole
so many might walk around you
instead of helping.

The letters in words
can create much confusion
if out of context.

Trials by our actions
are often the best teachers
giving memories.

Digging down too deep
you might encounter some rocks
within ones hearts.

Essence of teardrops
is the outcome of sadness
and of happiness.

Too many choices
can create much confusion
so narrow it down.

Tidings of blessings
comes when listening to God
and doing what’s right.

Many lines we’ve drawn
can separate good people
from our existence.

Pathways that we choose
might be leading us to Hell
thought to be Heaven.

Answering a call
you might need to discuss it
before giving way.

The sky up above
provides many perceptions
that we may perceive.

All of our heartbeats
are heard as a rhythmic drum
in Heaven above.

In search of true love
you might discover liars
putting on an act.

The heat of moments
may display urgent choices
that might be real bad.

The years that we live
become as echoes in time
as ones remember.

Hanging up the phone
does not always end the call,
for it might still live.

Beyond what we view
life might not be as we think,
but still be living.

Our thresholds of pain
may seem much greater than yours,
but yours is of you.
