We Have Choices


Hello my friends

This might be really short being I am in
a bit of pain due to hemorrhoids and it’s
making it hard to sit.  There is nothing
that can be done for them so I must just
deal with it LOL.  Anyways,  I don’t like
telling people my health issues being I’ve
been dealing with them for many decades
and my old body is inoperable.  So onto
the journal.  Judy and I had a fairly nice
week last week.  Monday Judy took me
to my Welcare doctor visit in town and
we were going to stop and get us some
ice cream at the Houlton Farms Dairy
bar,  but they were not going to open
for a few hours and we decided to try
again later in the week.  We ended up
going to get us ice cream Friday and
it looked like a whole lot of others had
the very same idea :).  None the less
the ice cream was worth waiting for :).
Judy went to a wedding Saturday with
her daughter Helena and grandson
Christian.  I stayed home with Rocky
and did a lot of box cutting and then
taking them out to burn them.  Then
I did some poetry writing and whatnot.
I had to empty out the burn barrel
before burning more and that took a
toll on my body,  but I got it done
and used some of the melted plastic
to fill up some of the holes in our
yard that the snow plows made.  I’ll
know next time to not put in plastic
items in the burn barrel being that
they don’t burn so well.  They just
melt together LOL.  I had to chop at
the melted plastic with a shovel to
get it to come out,  but it finally came
out as I turned to barrel upside down.
Judy made it home earlier then I was
thinking she would and that made me
happy.  LOL She said she could smell
the smoke from the burn barrel.  I use
a lid filter that I bought that fits over
the top of the burn barrel to prevent
any of the ashes from floating out and
starting a fire.  So,  that’s about all
that I can sit here and tell ya being
my butt hurts LOL.  God has been
good to us even though there may be
a few times that we might feel like
He has forgotten us.  None the less
He never forgets.  Remember we’re
human and if God stepped in and
prevented anything bad happening,
then we would be but only puppets.
We have choices in our life that we
must deal with as well as the living
part.  What’s life without some of
the good and bad,  for without the
bad we would not appreciate the
good.  Thank You Father God for
never wavering in Your love and
care.  Amen and amen.  Now I do
believe it is time for me to read
back over all that I’ve written and
try to find a good word or phrase
that I can use as a title for today’s
brand new poem.  So it’s away I
go to that place of my recollection
that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a fairly
decent title just a few lines back
and now after checking I see that
it has not been used yet.  So used
it shall be.  Here goes…

We Have Choices

Byways and doorways
choices that we take
might often be the best
or a real big mistake.
Ventures we travel
might become as regret
while within seasons
we may wish to forget.
Yet in our lifetime
we one day might see
the lessons from life
in our history.
Learning from times
we stumbled and fell
so often seeming like
moments of Hell.
Yet thru the journey
you may hear voices
within your memory
for we have choices.

I hope you liked the poem.  I hurried
to get it written hehehe,  because my
butt hurts bad.  Anyways I hope my
rambling didn’t bore ya.  Hopefully
something I said put a smile on your
face or taught you something.  I do
beleive that is all that I have for ya
this week 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 of 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 to begin my
search for that silly hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a
truly blessing filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do to.  OK,
so where can that ornery off switch
be hiding this time?????  So you’re
making it easy on me this week due
to you knowing my butt problem 🙂
So what have you been doing every
other week?  Making it hard LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Flowing as Water

Hurried emotions
become as views
scenes of seasons
the times infuse.
Rushing with life
as ages of styles
scenes might flow
becoming smiles.
Blessings hidden
just like a dream
flowing displaying
a watery scene.
Thriving seconds
counted as love
with the ripples
of God up above.
Transpiring sights
to works of art
flowing as water
the times impart.

Winter’s Last Breath

Snow may still fall
and create a view
striving for a breath
for time to ensue.
Leaving us scenes
with snow of white
melting as it lands
found within sight.
Windows of scenery
of grass so green
as the springtime
creates a new scene.
Displaying a stage
for a season to rest
giving a time for
winter’s last breath.

Tracks of Worry

Senseless doorways
times we choose
can often become
a worrisome fuse.
Lit with seconds
that times began
tracks to worry
might hit the fan.
Leaving emotions
as a timeless phase
worried for things
from distant days.
Let God help you
to find your path
and give your life
a better contrast.
A life with lesser
of times of hurry
leading away from
tracks of worry.

Walking Thru Time

A beach of memories
in a season’s sands
find me remembering
us holding hands.
Hearing the waves
that roar with words
while we are walking
amidst many birds.
The time is a window
that we look thru
seeing all the minutes
that seconds accrue.
Hours turn to days
and days into years
as a moment in time
most surely adheres.
Seeming like dreams
of a wondrous design
found within a picture
walking thru time.

Searching The Sea

Often in my dreams
I will search to find
a place I remember
an awesome design.
Like the ocean waves
upon a sandy shore
scented of salt air
with time to explore.
My dream might drift
into a world of blue
with the ocean scenes
I still wish to view.
Finding my heartbeat
in a simple memory
as a storybook world
 searching the sea.

Pictured Places

Finding a moment
that breathes of style
might be illusional
with a dream’s smile.
Textures of life times
may expose a phase
seeing a train track
with onlooking gaze.
Living as doorways
contrived to become
life as a window
to a new setting sun.
Train tracks thru life
accompany a view
showing what’s false
and also what’s true.
Scented of scenery
breathed as a breath
places with traces
that time was arrest.
Sleeping as dreamers
discover life’s faces
time comes to life
with pictured places.

Time in the Clouds

Seen as a picture show
the clouds continue on
often with some rain
that might form a song.
There may be lightning
with thunder to come
as the times pass by
and the story’s begun.
Written in the clouds
are God’s words of time
often heard as blessings
 with a magical rhyme.
Search thru the sights
let your heart arouse
and find God’s blessings
time in the clouds.

Now and Then

Seas sights of seconds
become that of gold
as time forms windows
into stories of old.
Scenes within seasons
live on as a style
while seconds become
a once in a while.
Created from a stage
that life bestowed
that’s now a blessing
time might unfold.
Seen as life’s doorway
a new day to begin
using the lessons
in the now and then.

Dreamer’s Reunion

Within a pond of water
some ducks may swim
repeating there stories
with time in the wind.
A perspective’s visions
might seem to attain
a dream within dream
that memories retain.
It might seem just like
a moment’s illusion,
but live as a memoir
in a dreamer’s reunion.

Our Thoughts

Thru winter’s memories
the seasons may show
the ending transcending
with times to bestow.
Springtime comes alive
as a little bit of green
while melding in times
with twigs scenic scene.
The branches of trees
still standing but brown
with leaves growing,
that soon come around.
Creating the beauty
that time may have lost
awakening sights
that live in our thoughts.

for May 4,  2024

Pushing your body
on beyond what you’re able
can shorten your life.

The end of a rope
may have the same on both ends
so take some caution.

The storms in our life
might have begun due to us,
so look for lessons.

Today might display
many forms of perspectives
that we must choose from.

Hearing a pin drop
in a noisy atmosphere
it might have been large.

Trading with others
to which they might be cheaters
you might come out screwed.

Walking in a field
that has many groundhog holes
you might meet the ground.

Cherishing money
can only leave you empty
as it is soon spent.

Leaping thru your life
like a frog on lily pads
you might just get wet.

Staring at the stars
you might fall into a dream
that finds you in space.

Tarnished emotions
can awaken memories
that you should let go.

Diving into a pond
not looking before you leap
you might find regret.

When sharing gossip
you might find that it’s not true
as some may have lied.

Trials of our lifetime
might seem to be unneeded,
but in time we’ll see.

Various doorways
lead to many occasions
wished to turn around.

Winter to springtime
life becomes as a journey
time thru melted snow.

Yesterday’s lessons
can seem stupid at the time,
but soon come to light.

Loneliness evolves
when a stage of life has changed
leaving friends behind.

Timid emotions
can prevent ones from learning
a new form of life.

Some of our questions
have so very few answers,
because no one knows.

Sympathy for ones
that are only crying wolf
can keep them lying.

Reading ones wordings
you might not understand them
if you don’t know them.
