Walk Like A Penguin


Hello my friends

I hope you had a nice weekend.   Ours has
been peaceful.  It snowed a little Saturday,
but nothing horrendous.  It did snow quite
a bit last Tuesday and I got out that evening
and cleared our drive with the snow blower
being we were going to have to head out to
Bangor early Wednesday morning.  I wanted
to make sure we were going to be able to get
out of our driveway.  I took pictures all the
way to Bangor and back.  We stopped off at
Denny’s and had dinner,  before we headed
back home.  The food was great 🙂  Anyways,
the doctor at the Bangor hospital said that
Judy’s lung is looking in good shape.  That
made us both very happy and relieved.  She
is doing much better.  They have yet to of
made her a new schedule for Chemo,  but I
am sure that will be soon.  We are thinking
of going to Walmart
tomorrow to get a few
things and then maybe hop over to Dollar
Tree and get Rocky a few treats LOL.  He’s
a picky boy and I think he deduces what we
don’t have much of and says to himself in a
little growling voice that’ll be what I want 🙂
No I do not think he is that intelligent,  but
it often seems that is how he is thinking :).
Oh yea,  when we got back from Bangor
Wednesday we saw that our driveway had
been plowed by the plow guy :).  So our
driveway is in good shape now,  but only
to be a bumpy skating rink hehehehehe.
Of course we can drive on it,  but we’ve
gotta walk like a penguin or fall on our
butts.  I have to wear cleats to walk out to
check the mail or risk busting my bottom
and other parts of my anatomy on the cold
frozen ground.  I have in the passed fallen
many times and my body cannot tolerate
any more falls as I have had.  This old body
has been through the mill since moving up
here.  I do though like the weather a whole
lot more than the weather in Texas.  I can
handle the cold a lot better than I can the
hot weather.  Judy is behind me crocheting
as she does most every day.  I would love
it if she would do a little painting sometime
and paint some pictures that I can use for
poems.  I’m hoping that she does do a bit
of painting,  but it is up to her 🙂  So what
else is going on around this place? Judy
went and picked up Barbara and Dena and
they went over to their sister Trudes house
and had a girls night.  I did my normal as
I was stuck at home with Rocky.  I wrote
a poem and did my haiku which only took
me roughly an hour to do :).  Then it was
boredom city.  Judy ordered some Chinese
food for her and her sisters to take when
she went.  I had a pot pie and watched a
bit of Red Green on TV LOL.  Life in the
fast lane hehehehe.  It’s quite slow around
here,  but God is always watching over us.
I’m sure we have many angels and kindly
spirits watching over us as well.  I often feel
as though the spirits are giving me thoughts
to write about when doing my poetry.  Yep,
I do stay busy writing and think often that
is the only thing that keeps me sane hehehe.
I am thankful that God gave me the gift of
poetry.  It has saved my life many times
helping me to see the bright side of things.
I pray that God is in your life as well and
you have found many blessings in your
life and times.  Thank You Father God for
all that You have done and surely all that
You will do.  Amen and Amen.  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 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 little place of  my
recollection that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I may have stumbled on
a title near the halfway mark of my ongoing
rambling and now after checking,  it looks
as if I have not use it yet.  I might have a
hard time using it,  but here goes hehehe…

Walk Like A Penguin

Don’t walk too fast
in your day to day life
or you might discover
heartbeats of strife.
Yes you might find it
while walking slow,
but if you hurry about
you’ll hurry the flow.
Often it’s much better
to walk as on ice
small steps but only
is the best advice.
For when within hurry
you might surely fall
seeking for the things
that are none at all.
Find your momentum
to then and again
learning the times to
walk like a penguin.

Well there ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even a bit of my rambling.  I hope
I didn’t bore you to death LOL.  Anyways,  I
think I’ve told you all that there is to tell 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 the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can find 1
or 2 of either or both that you like.  Now I do
believe it’s time for me to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Okey dokey,
so where can that ornery off switch be trying
to hide this time?  As if it ever puts forth any
real effort in hiding LOL!  Hmm,  where can
that silly thing be?  I see that you found my
Bayer Aspirin bottles huh.  Well the only way
that you’re ever going to hide for more than a
brief is if you learn to not play peekaboo LOL.
So if you’re gonna hide,  do so without always
looking to see if I can see ya hehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Crystallized Minds

Seconds of creation
form minutes of views
some found crystallized
neath a sky of blues.
There might be scenes
of moments to pass
found within the snow
as wintertime grass.
The grasses might sleep
as wintertime awakes
giving minds of designs
our eyesight partakes.
Living as a seasonal
moment to be discerned
like a page of a stage
of a book to be turned.
Listen to the breezes
blowing in with designs
and let them prosper
some crystallized minds.

Winds of Design

Country memories
bring life in view
as sights and sounds
of the old and new.
Wintertime’s breath
creates living scenes
as winds of design
thrive within dreams.
Passages formatted
into timeless friends
you might see snow
that life transcends.
Giving imagination
many stories to tell
about all the things
our life did prevail.
Scenes just as pages
out of a storybook
the winds of design
that deserve a look.
Find in the windows
of your passing mind
the ages of blessings
in winds of design.

Lifelong Connections

So many memories
transform our eyes
to seeing reflections
beneath the skies.
Seeming as mirrors
reflecting the views
lifelong connections
find ways to infuse.
A bright sunny day
can unleash sights
as timeless as love
in days and nights.
There might be seen
the season of snow
a wintertime stage
with a scenic glow.
Magic of memories
in many directions
shining as a dream’s
lifelong connections.

Season’s Masterpiece

The artwork of winter
forms snowscape sights
within living doorways
as each second ignites.
Transforming scenery
into an elegant stage
moment’s masterpiece
that’s of a timeless age.
Opening up passageways
to heartfelt dreams
scented of snowflakes
and wonderful scenes.
Time may seem illusion
as we watch from afar
seeing life as artwork
while riding in a car.
Search beyond sight
and let moments release
opening up the door to
a season’s masterpiece.

Life’s Scenic Arc

Many of our journeys
end up as a phase
that seem like an arc
within so many ways.
There might be a sight
that seems as a dream
an arc across a road
within a snowy scene.
You might even see
some trees that glisten
in evening’s sunshine
that time has given.
Portrayed of artwork
in a wintertime style
as an arc across a road
that gives you a smile.
There might be a beam
of sun shining thru
with a life’s scenic arc
giving a magical view.

Choosing a Path

Beginning journeys
without any thinking
might be regretful
if you begin sinking.
Life can surprise you
and land you in snow
if you just head out
and go with the flow.
Use common sense
and try not to choose
pathways minutes
you think you may lose.
Let the passed lessons
to help you to find
some better choices
with a better design.
Don’t let your hurry
to land you in pain
while you continue
your journeys insane.
Seek for doorways,
but don’t go too fast
as you move forwards
choosing a path.

Melting Ice

Stages of scenery
are often in place
formed as seasons
give an embrace.
Threads of sights
as ice driven gold
become as stories
that times unfold.
Becoming echoes
of now and again
with melting ice
a seasonal friend.
Creating the flow
of a watery stage
as time moves on
from age to age.
A cinematic view
of Heaven’s device
as a breath of air
with melting ice.

Peaceful Within

Seconds might pass
leaving the sight
of peaceful within
a wintertime white.
You might not see
the dream begun,
for you might only
see what is done.
So look real closely
and find the heart
the beating essence
that times impart.
All of the blessings
the times transcend
are sent from God
His peaceful within.

Entering Minds

Traces of memoirs
written in designs
transform stories
into magical times.
Snow on a window
of doorways of style
creates journeys
with a wintery smile.
Coming thereupon
an entrance of peace
life gives blessings
of Heaven’s release.
Displaying glimmers
winter’s designs
you may see ages
with entering minds.

Future Displaced

Breathing snowflakes
combine into sights
creating the illusions
that a season ignites.
Transforming scenes
into another design
within the branches
of life’s wintertime.
Seeming like shadows
that glisten so well
with future displaced
creating times to tell.
The ages are gathered
together in a scene
to create us a future
that can be a dream.
Thriving as a song
with nothing to waste
right now can create
our future displaced.

for Jan 20,  2024

Tomorrows will come,
but now is in the present,
so focus on it.

Our trials and errors
might seem to be without end,
but time moves along.

Years that we wander
leaving friendship in the past
we might find regret.

Essence of sunshine
enhances a moment’s place
creating shadows.

Heartbeats of true love
can often seem so silent
that some miss the words.

When trying too hard
we can often create our failure
not seeing what’s good.

Tedious moments
might become as important
if we ignore them.

Flavored as passion
life can be like a milkshake
with icecream headaches.

Journeys encountered
can become mysterious paths
that we might regret.

Jumbled emotions
that we find within our life
might only be fear.

Sharing a moment
with someone that is empty
might help them be full.

Allowing sadness
to overrun your emotions
can cause loss of smiles.

Hearing a doorbell
when there is none to be heard
might be only hope.

Glancing at a dream
from within many nightmares
you might find a  way.

Ice upon a tree
leaves many forms of glitter
to shine in sunlight.

Trees of solitude
hold many branches of peace
to blow in a breeze.

The years of our life
might display many errors
that become lessons.

Shimmery sunsets
open up doorways to night
giving place for dreams.

When hearing thunder
you can be sure that lightning
was the first effect.

Reaching for the stars
your grasp will be your eyesight
that your hands can’t reach.

Seeking for the past
while forgetting all the bad,
you seek illusions.

Focusing on time
and not what that’s within it
you might be surprised.
