Before it Rains


Hello my friends

I hope spring has been good to ya.  It’s made
me have to mow till I dropped while trying to
get it done before it rains again.  It’s supposed
to start raining again
Tuesday and God only
knows when it will quit.  LOL the weathermen
don’t show to have a clue hehehe.  Heck as for
as I know it could come a heavy rain
My weather programs say mostly cloudy with
a high of 65,  but no rain LOL.  We shall see.
I hope it doesn’t rain being I still have a lot
of mowing to do and with our small 16 inch
40 volt push mower it is not an easy chore.
Being the grass was nearly 2 foot high when
I began mowing I had to put the mower on
the highest settings to mow through it.  Now
I will have to mow it again with the settings
lower to cut the grass a little shorter or at
least that’s the plan.  I don’t think I will get
it all mowed again before Tuesday,  but I’ll
do what I am able.  Right now my body is
aching profusely.  I feel as though I have
walked to town and back LOL.  I have to
stop ever so often and rest on the benches
that we have outside,  being that I have
asthma and have to catch my breath as
well as rest my legs or I’ll collapse.  I’m
not a quitter.  I often over do it being I
have my dads blood running thru me and
he often over did it too 🙂  I have trouble
stopping when I’ve begun something such
as a job.  Reasons being I was forced into
retirement in 2002 told I could not hold
down a job again due to my health and
that did not go well with me,  but after I
tried to find another job I soon found out
that I was going to have to accept my life
as it was.  So I spend much of my time
writing poetry and such.  I also mow as
much as I am able as the same goes for
snow blowing clearing our driveway of
snow.  I have very limited strength and
abilities,  but I choose not to give up :).
I guess the day will come that my body
will no longer be able to do anything and
I pray to God that in that instance that
He brings me home.  But yet,  it doesn’t
seem that my life is at its end quite yet,
so I shall continue on till that day arrives.
Judy’s going to spend the day with her
sisters Memorial day.  I am going to
continue trying to get our lawn mowed
before the rains begin,  because by the
looks of my weather program it might
rain all the way into the weekend and
I cannot mow then.  I wish we could
afford a riding lawnmower,  but it is
what it is.  God’s still with us helping
us from second to second,  minute to
minute,  hour to hour and day to day.
There’s never a moment that He is
not watching over us.  Believe it or not,
He watches over you as well.  It might
not seem like it,  but He is always with
His love to give us strength to endure
what we cannot change.  I hope you
have God in your life.  We have many
angels and kindly spirits that watch
over us and we are grateful.  I pray
that your life is filled with blessings.
Thank You Father God for all that
You do and all that You surely will
do.  Amen and amen.  Now I believe
it is time for me to be reading 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 place of my recollection that
I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may have found me a fairly
decent title near the beginning of my
rambling and now after checking I
see that it hasn’t been used yet,  so
used it shall be today.  Here goes…

Before it Rains

When in a storm
we need to pray
giving to God
our will and way.
Allowing prayer
to give a breath
and find His peace
strength in access.
Look to the skies
and find a sign
within the clouds
a rainbow’s design.
Don’t let storms
be all that attains
find Lord God
before it rains.

Well there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even a little bit of my
rambling :).  Hopefully something I said
gave you peace.  Anyways,  that’s about
all I can think of to tell you other than
what I tell you nearly every single week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers 10 more poems and
22 more haiku for all that 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 for me to
begin my search for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you
all a happy Memorial Day and a truly
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 week??? Hmmmm,
looking in all of its normal hiding spots
I don’t see it,  but now after glancing
over to my left,  I see that it’s chosen
to try to hide in my software bag again.
It’s been a while since its tried to hide
in that thing.  Probably due to there
not being any room for it hehehehehe.
I see ya hanging on to the edge of the
bag.  Here’s a thought,  how about
finding a new spot to hide,  just saying.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Winter’s Reflections

Life’s sky of beauty
becomes memories
as the past connects
in a timeless breeze.
Storms might form
seeming as dreams
transforming sights
into so many things.
Then as the visions
fall from our view
the time and place
displays life as new.
Creating doorways
scenic connections
displaying stages of
winter’s reflections.

Stroking a moment
creating a stage
time becomes life
of a coming of age.
Wild scenic ripples

open a doorway
to a place and time.
Transforming life
to cosmic dreams
within the ages of
timeless scenes.
Becoming memories
shadows of days
moments blessings
just like waves.

Time Does Attest

Upon our travels
we may find a few
places with traces
of here thereunto.
Scenic perceptions
are like memories
found in windows
like timeless seas.
A flavor of style
thrives as a breath
momentous places
time does attest.

Heartbeats in the Sky

Scenes that emerge
from a sky of clouds
display the moments
each second endows.
Beginning journeys
to transform a view
formulating windows
for me and for you.
Then down below
there may be a sight
trees seen bestowing
a moment’s delight.
Presenting a picture
from God up above
filled with blessings
and heavenly love.
Scenes rearranging
as gifts from Adonai
becoming dreams
heartbeats in the sky.

Glimmers of Eve

Sunshine blinding
the times in view
become a doorway
we can walk thru.
Becoming a breath
found within sight
glimmers of eve
can shine so bright.
Shimmering scenes
on stages of time
can create portals
inside of our mind.
It may be blinding
this scenic stage,
but display beauty
from age to age.
Inciting a moment
heaven did weave
magical pictures
as glimmers of eve.

Images of Emotion

Describing our visions
the times did display
might seem to others
as a dreamers array.
Painted in our mind
we see what we saw
thriving with blessings
of a heavenly awe.
Our scenic perception
might seem to lie,
but the time’s picture
is in our mind’s eye.
Seeming as a window
to a skyline ocean
time might conceive
the images of emotion.

Summer’s Awakening

Springtime serenades
as a flower or two
displayed in a field
as a seasonal view.
Time is a trickster
that unleashes sights
creating doorways
to days and nights.
Pathways trodden
become memories
flowing as an ocean
sounds of a breeze.
Life becomes time
as spring fades into
summer’s awakening
a brand new view.

Evening Portrays

When night comes near
it brings us a sight
stars that twinkle
with an essence of light.
The moonlight bestows
moments to embrace
as nighttime dreams
with a heartfelt taste.
Evening forms sights
in the sky up above
scenes we remember
as true heavenly love.
Seeming as reflections
inside of our mind
as shadows we cast
each season of time.
Displaying the stories
we remember so well
within evening’s light
as a magical spell.
The minutes tick on
in wondrous arrays
as night comes alive
and evening portrays.

Views From Time

On a boat dreaming
scenes come in tune
now as my memories
I timelessly swoon.
Becoming the echoes
of life’s passageways
filled with an aroma
of the distant days.
Time becomes alive
as breath to breathe
found in the views
that hearts conceive.
Memories doorways
still live in my mind
found as a reflection
of views from time.

Throughout Destiny

An emotional journey
can become a stage
with unpracticed time
as the passing of age.
Moments may seem
as withered creations
found in the windows
of time’s destinations.
Scenes such as waters
can often be found
as timeless emotions
with a rippling sound.
There might be a lake
that gives sight to see
reflecting emotions
throughout destiny.

for May 25,  2024

Our life’s destinies
can often seem without end,
but it’s all numbered.

Seeking perfection
you find much disappointment
as we all have flaws.

Our minds as rivers
might flow the wrong direction
and end waterless.

Visualizing time
as a reflection of life
you might see shadows.

some lifestyles may be perceived,
but be very dull.

Resting your mindset
you might find better pathways
that your mind can trod.

Looking to the stars
many dream of illusions
as a perfect life.

Trivial doorways
can hold many perceptions
of what that is right.

Life’s now and again
might seem a bit out of sorts,
but be what’s needed.

Breathing a moment
your breath might find less to breathe,
so look for the truth.

Sleeping thru your life
you might miss many good things
that God has for you.

Echoes in a dream
might seem to transform shadows
into your choices.

Painting with your mind
you might discover artwork
that you never knew.

Allowing for time
to move as it’s supposed to
takes pressure off you.

Jumping too quickly
can land you in a puddle
that you could of missed.

Predestined choices
can lead you to destruction,
for time changes paths.

Searching for someone
you might find them much quicker
if you let God search.

Within a storm cloud
there might be a few raindrops
or a tornado.

Leverage on life
many think of as money,
but it’s commonsense.

Many destinies
are thwarted by silliness
and not thinking clear.

Heavenly blessings
are all around us each one,
but sometimes not seen.

Today presents time
we can try to do better,
but still make mistakes.
