Within The Branches


Hello my friends

It’s been a snowy few days up this way.
It snowed most of Friday and Saturday.
Yep,  and all of the trees look awesome
with snow and ice within the branches.
I took a few pictures of them before my
batteries died in my camera.  We’ve not
had near the weather that we’ve had in
the past.  It was so nice having my Judy
home from the hospital for Christmas.
She is doing much better now.  We went
down to Bangor last Thursday to have
x rays of her lungs to see if the hole had
healed and great news,  it has and they
removed the chest tube.  Now in the next
few weeks she’ll start back with chemo
for the rest of the cancer that’s in her
lung that they were unable to remove
surgically.  We are hoping and praying
that what all that’s left of the cancer will
soon be gone.  Anyways,  after we left the
doctors office we went to the Governor’s
Restaurant to celebrate the removal of
the chest tube and healing of the hole in
her lung.  I drove us down there,  but she
said she felt like driving home,  so I let
her drive.  My legs were in pain from the
drive down there.  I took a few pictures
of the trip.  I took a few pictures of the
snow Saturday and they came out pretty
good.  It’s looking more like wintertime.
Today at noon we went to town and got
us some donuts from Dunkin and then
stopped off at Walmart to do a little bit
of shopping for things we were in need of.
Fortunately it hadn’t snowed much and
it was not hard getting out of the driveway.
I just had to go out and clear all of the
ice and snow off of the car and then get
in it and start it to let it warm up a little,
so to melt off what that was left.  I took a
few pictures of our drive to town until
the camera batteries died.  Oh well it is
what it is.  God has been good to us.
We’re very grateful that her lung healed
and she is able to breathe now without
the chest tube to drain the fluids from it.
Thank You Father God for the blessings.
We pray that all of you are living with
God in your hearts and minds.  Yes we
all have our fair share of troubles in life,
but with God,  it will all be OK.  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 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.  Well it looks as
though I may have found me a fairly good
title near the beginning of my rambling
and now after checking,  I see that it has
not been used yet,   so used it shall be.
Here goes…

Within The Branches

Scenes of storybooks
have words within
that can bring to life
a timeless friend.
Words as reflections
of the days of past
within the branches
as shadows they cast.
Breathing as memoirs
words of a feather
blowing in the wind
as time’s own weather.
Scents are recognized
as moments infuse
creating a doorway
to choices to choose.
God gives us blessings
filled full of chances
thriving in His grace
within the branches.

There ya go.  I hope you enjoyed a little
of my rambling and the poem spoke to
you.  Hopefully I didn’t bore you to tears.
I haven’t much else to tell you other than
HAPPY NEW YEAR and what I tell you
nearly every week other than the passed
few weeks LOL and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers 10 more
poems and 8 of them are Christmas poems.
I also wrote 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.
So now I reckon it’s time for me to begin
my search for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a truly Happy
New Year and this week gives you a load
full of blessings.  Okey dokey,  so where
can that ornery off switch be trying to
hide this week?  It’s had a couple of weeks
to find a good hiding spot,  but I bet you
it didn’t use them LOL.  Yeppers,  I was
correct in that assumption.  It’s lying on
my back keyboads as if to be sunning with
my desk light LOL.  You’re not gonna get
a tan ya silly thing.  You don’t have skin 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

All That I Want
To Judy Pearce

My Christmas wish
is not for stuff,
but for my wife
of which I love.
Seeking to hold her
within my grasp
and give her a kiss
that’ll last and last.
She is my angel
my true loving wife
she’s all that I want
for all of my life.
I’m looking forward
to seeing her face
glowing as an angel
like stars in space.
I await her beauty
and love so deep
for she is my dream
when I go to sleep.
Yes she is my love
of a heavenly haunt
my Christmas gift
she’s all that I want.

Sky of Scenery

Visions as recordings
create scenes of time
seasons of emotions
of a deep sky design.
Our wants and wishes
thrive in the clouds
as a sky of scenery
that hopeful endows.
Dreaming of miracles
to surely come true
as we look up above
to a deep sky of blue.
Clouds might speak
of heartbeats of time
as passionate phases
that live within mind.
Our loving memories
we wish now to see
come to life above us
in a sky of scenery.

Sitting With Prayer
To Judy Pearce

Hopeful is a moment
prayerful is a scene
that often envelops
a heartfelt dream.
Time seems illusional
as days turn to weeks
while sitting with God
my hopeful speaks.
Looking into seconds
as time continues on
I say a little prayer
in a heartfelt song.
Awaiting for my wife
to finally get home
as I am sitting here
writing her this poem
Singing songs of life
full of love and care
waiting for Christmas
sitting with prayer.

Driving To Christmas

Roads to dreamworlds
can open your mind
and become doorways
to some magical times.
Driven as a passageway
chock full of memoirs
driving to Christmas
with family in cars.
The songs on the radio
are of Christmas cheer
tunes that remind us
of a passage of year.
Listen to your heart
as the road hums along
driving to Christmas
with a Christmas song.

Holiday Sights

The lights of Christmas
glowing with a style
give off a wonderful
Christmastime smile.
Maybe seen flickering
or just shining true
the sights within nights
of a Christmassy view.
Glittering as the stars
on a picture book page
all the holiday sights
come alive on a stage.
Creating the memories
that we may remember
the holiday sights of
a yesterday’s December.
Blissful are the times
within Christmas nights
memories of the past
of those holiday sights.

Train of Design

On a
Christmas travel
we noticed a train
all lit up in lights
for times to attain.
Scenes all around it
were lit up as well
with scenic desires
of a story to tell.
Giving of the essence
of a passageway
on a train of design
in a Christmas array.
Shining so brilliantly
the lights all aglow
creating a journey
for heartbeats to go.
Opening up doorways
to a Christmastime
found as a memory
on a train of design.

Rainbow Bridge Christmas

Greetings from the doorways
of four legged sights
memories of our loved ones
that the season ignites.
A passageway of moments
with wintertime’s snow
a Rainbow Bridge Christmas
that puts on a show.
Listen for all the heartbeats
that moments might say
heard as the rhythms
of a so distant day.
The loved ones remembered
still live in our dreams
a Rainbow Bridge Christmas
with wonderful scenes.
Open up your eyes now
and see within a prayer
a Rainbow Bridge Christmas
filled with love and care.

Winter Moon

The moon of winter
might seem to shine
as a glistening ball
of dear wintertime.
Some clouds of life
might pass on thru
to give the moon
a sentimental view.
Seeming as a phase
of a ghostly sight
as the winter moon
reflects the sunlight.
Misty passageways
of clouds of design
resonate blessings
of Christmastime.
Becoming a window
for times to attune
as dreamers dreams
of a winter moon.

Life of Reason

There may be snow
or grasses of time
as a life of reason
in a little rhyme.
It might be a song
or a wintery theme
as a life of reason
in songs we sing.
Seek for the truth
in blessings of God
as a life of reason
deserving applaud.
Blissful moments
in now and again
flow like a river
beginning to end.
There may be snow
of a wintery way
as a life of reason
a Christmas array.
Look for the gifts
found in the season
Christmastime joy
as a life of reason.

Creating Your Chains

Throughout our life
we might not see
the wrongs we did
in our history.
We might be blind
to wishes and wants
we strived in time
that surely haunts.
Looking around
we might perceive
thru ghost of life
the webs we weave.
Forming the ties
we take to grave
by not giving what
we could of gave.
Look for the peace
in a giving heart
to the ones in need
that are torn apart.
Don’t be so cold
as an empty shell
and be a scrooge
that’s heading to Hell.
See all the wrongs
that time attains
and don’t keep on
creating your chains.

Having a lifeline
in the form of deception
might bring you demise.

Stars up above us
tell stories about themselves
that we might not read.

Scenes within doorways
might show falsely what’s within
just to suck you in.

Living for a time
can often be the wrong time
and not of the right.

Snowflakes of winter
often create scenery
with old worn out sights.

The leaves of autumn
can often seem as artwork
that minds may perceive.

Seeking a starship
to carry you to your dreams
you might just crash land.

Limitless journeys
come from heavenly doorways
seen within the stars.

Trading your pathway
for one that you do not need
can lead to trouble.

Ages of heartbeats
transform many perceptions
into good and bad.

Allowing yourself
to be manipulated
can weaken your stride.

Today is a time
that gives us many choices
to choose what to do.

Looking for trouble
you might open a doorway
that has no way out.

Learning the hard way
often creates good lessons
if you live thru them.

Shadows of ourselves
might seem to live within time
that is recorded.

Values of others
can often seem very  cheap
when seeing their life.

Trading your lifestyle
for what might seem to be great
might prove unhealthy.

Leaping not looking
can find you in a puddle
just splashing about.

When watching the sky
you might see some clouds drift by
creating many views.

Now is a moment
that allows change within it
if we choose to change.

Juggling your choices
with the good and not so good
can push you over.

When hearing thunder
you can bet there is lightning
so don’t be stupid.
