Turn It Off


Hello my friends

I hope you are having a decent life. We’re
finally seeing springtime emerge from the
grip of winter.  It’s been a nice day today
with a high of 51 and sunny. 
temperature will be much of the same,  but
maybe a lil cloudy with light rain showers
off and on.  We’re doing well.  I have plans
to do a little box burning
Monday.  Judy
has a podiatrist appointment too and I’ll
more than likely go with her and do the
box burning either before we leave or after
 we get back.  For those of you that do not
know what a podiatrist is,  it’s a foot doc.
She goes to her being that Judy’s diabetic.
Judy begins her immunotherapy for cancer
this week as well and I will go with her for
that.  It’s in Presque Isle.  Right now it’s
just me in here being that Judy got up too
early and needed to go and get a little more
sleep.  I’ll wake her in a few hours. With the
weather changes it’s making both of us a
bit (how shall I say) under the weather LOL.
We haven’t felt like doing much of nothing
other than our hobbies.  I’m sure as soon as
the weather calms a bit,  we’ll also feel a lil
better.  At least I’m hoping on it.  LOL we
might just be getting old hehehe OK older.
Yep,  our old bodies are slowing down,  but
thankfully our hobbies are not that hard on
us 🙂  Nothing happened last week that is
worth talking about.  Again I specify that
we live a boring life LOL.  We watch a lot of
TV and we’ve started watching Resident Alien
most every night. We’ve found that we enjoy
the program.  It has humor and depth to it.
Anyways,  we watch it and then switch to 48
Hours for a couple of episodes and then go
to bed and watch some cartoons which at
this point are The Flintstones hehehe.  Then
we turn it off and try our hand at sleeping.
Judy’s a lot better at it than I am.  It most
times takes me at least 5 or 6 hours to get
me a few minutes of sleep,  but that’s been
my life for decades,  so I live with it 🙂 There
is nothing that can be done for me,  so I try
not to complain.  I enjoy my time with Judy
and Rocky.  Ok there are times that we get
on each others nerves LOL and Rocky is
a pain in the butt,  but for the most part we
love each other and Judy and I are the best
of friends.  LOL you would not expect ones
that are both retired and around each other
near 24-7 every day to not have a few bad
days,  would you?  LOL  Yes we do have
some off days,  but for the most part we’re
best friends and in love and if you have a
best friend I am sure that you have a few
arguments with them time to time Hehehe.
Anyways,  other than what I told you before
about what we have planned for this week,
I cannot think of anything else.  God has
continued to watch over us as have many
angels and kindly spirits.  Thank You God
for always being there for us and sending
us help when we are in dire need of help.
God gives us strength to continue walk on
thru life and do what He has for us to do.
We are so very thankful for all that You
have showed us in our lives.  Thank You
Father God.  Please keep your powerful
hands over all of our family,  friends and
the many that we know not of.  Amen.
Now I do believe it’s time for me to begin
my search back thru 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 place of my recollection that I
always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I found me a good title near the
middle of my rambling and now after
checking I see that it has not been used
yet,  so used it shall be.  Here goes…

Turn It Off

Time is a place
that so many get lost
looking at their life
so twisted and tossed.
They might only see
the essence of time
and not in the passing
of nickel and dime.
Lost in technology
of this day and age
not seeing themselves
as the actors on stage.
Sometimes it’s better
to stop for a while
and breathe a breath
letting truth compile.
Let yourself to see
what technology cost
if you don’t sometimes
just turn it off.

Well there ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and got the gist of it.  I also hope that you
enjoyed my rambling.  I see so many walking
around with cell phones just yammering away
not paying any attention to their loved ones
or friends around them.  It can be used in a
moderation,  but put it down time to time and
enjoy the ones around you or even better yet,
make new friends.  Go for a walk and enjoy
the views and a breath of air or if you cannot
walk,  then find something to do that you can
enjoy that doesn’t involve having a cell phone
attached to you.  LOL sorry,  I drifted.  No
matter,  I think I have told you all 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 of the haiku lovers out there.  I
hope you are able to find 1 or 2 of either or
both that you like.  Now with that said,  I do
believe it is time for me to begin my search
for that hardly elusive off switch,  but surely
not before I wish you all a blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Ok,  so where can that ornery off
switch be trying to hide this time???  Hmm,
I think I see some movement behind my AA
battery charger.  LOL you kept bumping
into my 9 volt battery charger and making a
clicking sound.  You’re gonna have to find
a better place to hide if you wanna hide 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Home and Place

Our ages become
as time and again
that’s often found
as seasonal wind.
Seen as a window
a pathway to trod
with a homestead
seasoned of God.
Look for the signs
that times display
so often as seconds
of life’s lemonade.
Ages are counted
as time thereunto
creating windows
we can look thru.
Search the scenes
wished to embrace
and take to heart
a home and place.

Traveling Doors

Miles that we journey
can often be framed
with our memories
the times we attained.
Doorways thru time
might unveil dreams
that seem just like
roadways of streams.
Flowing and bestowing
views that prevail
creating a perspective
with stories to tell.
Doorways might open
and give us a sight
one that’s fulfilled with
a time of delight.
Paved with emotions
that a mind explores
heartbeats of seasons
with traveling doors.

Lifetimes Revealed

Life within windows
might crash as waves
growing and ebbing
revealing time’s phase.
Scenes are reflections
within memory lane
as lifetimes moments
our minds do attain.
There may be a ship
that sails within sight
revealing its passage
mornings daylight.
Sailing across time
with its morning cruise
just like the mindsets
that may win or lose.
Reflect on goodness
of an ocean like field
and find the blessings
in lifetimes revealed.

Life’s Remembrance

Reflecting on times
we remember so well
brings back the joy
with awesome detail.
A morning sunrise
that glows so bright
as it joins the waves
with a magical sight.
Reflections of then
are as oceans desire
scented of heartbeats
of which we admire.
Looking within us
we see times enhance
beating as an ocean
life’s remembrance.

Tracks of Design

Our own doorways
might seem to display
so many perspectives
that many push away.
People might not see
all that goes on inside
and make perceptions
that are not so right.
Seek to understand
that we all need to be
letting ones to live in
a moment’s privacy.
We might not know
what’s in one’s mind
only seeing the worst
upon tracks of design.

Octobers Long Ago

Our memories of then
may not be the same
as coming Octobers
on life’s windowpane.
Time might display
unlike what we’ve seen
as October memories
are now just a dream.
A stage of perceptions
might reveal a show
different than views
of Octobers long ago.

Within Reflections

With snow melting
spring does appear
leaving reflections
that are so sincere.
Presenting echoes
as ripples of time
creating an essence
springtime to find.
Winter displays its
seasons connections
as snow into water
within reflections.

Heart of Flow

We are as rivers
flowing with style
some with a frown
some with a smile.
Waters emotional
flowing thru time
often becoming as
one’s point in time.
Hearts like rivers
currents so strong
flowing on thru
as a heartfelt song.
Tunes of memories
a song of words
scenes as dreams
of a flock of birds.
Scented as blessings
the times bestow
given from Heaven
as a heart of flow.

Love Breathes

Many live their life
in a fantasy world
as times so sublime
illusions unfurled.
Breathing a breath
a dreamer’s array
scented of fantasies
in an illusional way.
Life like a window
that some look thru
searching for magic
that’s not very true.
Look on beyond
the wishful scenes
then find what lives
and is not dreams.
For we have a time
like autumn leaves
needing to find that
true love breathes.

Deepest Sky

Sky of daydreams
sky of views
come and display
a life of blues.
Show us breath
in clouds above
with deepest sky
so full of love.
Give us blessings
give us peace
sky of design
let fear to cease.
Display true hope
from Adonai
as roadways to
the deepest sky.

for Apr 13,  2024

Now is a vision
that can become good or bad
determined by us.

Entering doorways
without ever knocking first
you might find danger.

Surviving on lies
you might find the truth exposed
and ending your life.

Peace is a venture
that many might walk right by
not seeing the path.

Heartbeats in a storm
can often become convinced
that they are in love.

Talking too loudly
ones might only hear anger
and not any words.

The leaves of autumn
are awaiting their season
to do their artwork.

Staring at darkness
you might think you see something
that’s just imagined.

Traveling down roads
that have many turns and twist
you might need a map.

Illusions of time
can create many heartaches,
so look for the peace.

Answers to questions
might turn out as redundant
for they’re repeated.

Disillusioned thoughts
can transform bad into good,
but just in the mind.

Sharing destinies
you’ll find that you’re not alone
but you might argue.

Provoking people
that you have no knowledge of
you might find regret.

Tempers might flare up
in the heat of a moment
that might be silly.

Layers of heartbeats
can create a foundation
that becomes friendship.

A test of patience
is often found in hurry
when you are slowed down.

Years that pass us by
may often seem just like dreams
that we’re wishing for.

Looking at the sun
you might find your sight is dimmed
so just look away.

Moments reunions
can bring to life memories
that give us a smile.

Waiting for the clock
to show the time that you want,
you might wait awhile.

Seeing someone’s pain
you might see it very small,
but be large to them.
