I Still Pray

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a warm passed week,  but it seems
to be cooling down a bit.  The high for today
is 69 F degrees.  Not too bad,  of course the
temperature will be bouncing around quite a
bit this week with Monday high of 77 and
Tuesday 79,  but it shows the Wednesday as
74 and Thursday at 71,  then Friday at 70 🙂
So,  yep,  the weather has not made up its
mind yet LOL.  It’s looking as though that
we have no 80 degree temps in  the forecast
for the next week or so.  Judy and I will be
spending the day Tuesday celebrating my
65th birthday.  Yep,  I’m gaining another
year on this old body.  I’ll let ya know in
next week’s journal what Judy and I did on
my birthday LOL.  Anyways,  next topic 🙂
Our neighbor is putting his underpinning
back on his mobile home.  He took it off
early in the summer.  I am guessing for
some air to help cool his trailer,  but not
really sure.  Anyways,  he’s out there now
hammering away putting it back.  We live
such an exciting life hehehe.  Not much of
a change from last week.  Judy’s sister is
still doing as well as to be expected.  Barb
is still hanging in there.  Please continue to
put her in your prayers.  It looks as though
Judy and I will have to do a little more work
on her birdbath,  but we’ll get R done.  It
might take a little added weight to be added
to the bottom of it to keep it from blowing
away,  but I’ll take care of that.  We are a
team.  She helps me and I help her.  With
us working together,  we can do many things.
Life here at the Pearce’s Place on most days
is quite peaceful.  We watch a lot of TV,  but
we both have our hobbies that keep us busy.
Judy seems to have more hobbies that me :),
but I don’t care.  It’s not a contest hehehe.
It looks as though it might rain tomorrow,
but that’s OK,  as long as it isn’t raining on
Tuesday (my birthday).  We have a few plans
for that day which can’t be done in the rain.
I took my conga drums outside Saturday for
a few music videos.  Yep,  I did a couple of
conga drumming videos and uploaded them
to Youtube and Facebook.  I also took a few
selfies of me on the congas after I was done.
Yes of course I will share a few of them in my
stationery :).  Time may seem to slow down
in certain circumstances,  but in others seem
to put the pedal to the metal.  I think we all
have moments we wonder how come they
went so fast and others that seemed to drag
along like a snail on valium LOL.  I have
had a few of the snail days that I wished I
could find a wormhole in space and hurry
on through hehehe.  Yet there many things
such as the days of my playing music with
my fellow musician friends that I wish had
not of gone by so quickly.  I miss those
days.  Now days all I’ve got is me, myself
and I to play music with.  I still pray that
I find someone before I’m dead to play a
few songs with.  I guess until that day,  I’ll
continue making my solo music videos 🙂
So,  what else is going on or not going on
around this place?  Well,  Judy and I are
still doing all we can to prevent us from
getting Covid.  Being that anti vaxxers are
still causing problems,  we still wear our
masks.  Thankfully we live way out in the
country.  It does have its drawbacks,  but
for the most part it’s great.  We enjoy the
peace and quiet.  We can feel the eyes of
God watching over us as well as many
angels that He has sent to protect us
and we can feel the presence of friendly
spirits that are with us every day.  I am
so very thankful for all that God does
for us each day that we may or may not
be aware of.  Thank You God for that
you do and all that You have done in
our lives.  AMEN.  Now I do believe it’s
time for me to read back on all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the
title of 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 may have found me a
decent title just about halfway back in
my rambling and now after checking I
see that it has not been used yet,  so,
used it shall be today.  Here goes…

I Still Pray

My life might seem
as a bed of nails
at times when I
see many details.
Roads so bumpy
might jar my mind
leaving me aching
from time to time.
Yet I still pray
for a better view
in life thereon
from old to anew.
The seasons pass
unleashing sights
some as dreams
and some as frights.
Yet I still pray
for peace and love
to be the essence
sent from above.
I now look back
and see each day
that I am thankful
as I still pray.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even a bit of my rambling 🙂
LOL the boys are lying in the floor and
doing doggy talk in their sleep.  I wish I
understood what they were saying hehehe.
Judy is behind me crocheting.  She seems
to enjoy doing that,  although I’m hoping
she does a little painting one day soon 🙂
Well,  that is about all that I have for you
other than what I tell you every week and
that is,  I wrote a few more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with 2
Christmas poems in the mix.  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.  Now I believe
it is time for me to begin searching for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but surely
not before I wish you a wonderful week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now,  where can that ornery off switch be
trying not so much to hide hehehe?  LOL
Oh my heavens,  I think you have ran out
of places to hide haven’t ya.  Though I do
believe you could of found a better place
to hide other than behind my orange juice
glass LOL.  Try harder next time ya silly.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Traveling Winds

Flying in the sky
churned by the wind
birds fly above,
soon they’ll descend.
Traveling to places
as time comes in view,
the winds of change
show a cosmic hue.
Providing a glimpse
of a passing array
in traveling winds
of a wondrous display.
Time can be echoes
of a passing sight
winds on a journey
with scenes in flight.
Sights such as seagulls
flying in the breeze
hovering searching
for food in the seas.
This might only be
a moment’s reflection
within some photos
a timeless connection.
It might even be
where time transcends
within the journeys
of traveling winds.

Unleashed Desires

Snow covered trees
in a picture or two
become so unleashed
in a wonderful view.
The textures of ice
with a whitish array
unleashed desires
are seen day to day.
Winters of windows
that time opens wide
become as memories
Christmas applied.
Scenic doorways
places we remember
become as a sparkle
Christmas December.
Unleashed desires
to magical dreams
become the windows
to so many scenes.
Times as reflections
a heartbeat admires
may then become as
unleashed desires.

Loving Eyes

A friend of life
a friend of time
has loving eyes
the times refine.
Just as a dream
a heart shines on
that of moments
of a loving song.
Sung as a tune
a simple melody
a time so divine
simple and free.
It is a blessing
a friend indeed
within a photo
a timeless seed.
Beating essence
becomes alive
within the sight
of loving eyes

Country Eyes

Looking searching
for some signs
passing moments
life’s designs.
You might arrive
at scenic styles
with country eyes
peaceful smiles.
The stage may be
an animal farm
as country eyes
find the charm.
Seeking blessings
timeless true
to find within
a magical view.
Living history
beneath the skies
that enlightens
country eyes.

Together Dreaming

Standing in a moment
watching time fly
while arms together
look up to the sky.
Finding a doorway
to a dreamer’s mind
together dreaming
watching life unwind.
This is a pathway
a journey through
seen as life’s windows
of times thereunto.
We are the dreamers
that hold in place
scenes that become
a warm embrace.
Looking to the sky
we might see a cloud
floating as a dream
so wondrously proud.
Below may be colors
of an autumn day
synched with pages
of an awesome array.
A moment in time
might become found
together dreaming
looking all around.

Winter Memory

The seasons pass by
leaving us sights
seeming so timeless
the days and nights.
Christmas passions
fill up the memories
as many snowflakes
will surely unfreeze.
Maybe a train track
of a time and place
or maybe a dream
you might embrace.
The moment seen
may seem so bland
as that of scenery
or a photo in hand.
Christmas still lives
as moments in time
places and faces
a wondrous design.
Scenes might elude
the sights you see
but continue on
in a winter memory.

Sparkle in The Sky

Within a winter’s day
sunshine may glow
an essence of beauty
in a season of snow.
Sparkling as a dream
in a wonderful way
flames up above us
expose winter’s day.
Challenging eyesight
to look thereupon
the sparkle in the sky
before it is gone.
The day shows scenes
that live within time
so often as Christmas
in memories mind.
Living for a moment
that enhances a view
the sparkle in the sky
says how do you do.
Reaching with warmth
from up so very high
it is the sunshine
a sparkle in the sky.

Time Fades Away

Winter’s snow melts
and leaves in place
times to remind
of a scenic embrace.
Formed as a puzzle
with pieces of white
just melting away
to form a new sight.
Time fades away
leaving a glimpse
of wintertime’s skies
seeming past tense.
Soon in its place
flowers will bloom
from April to May
and then unto June.
Time begins paths
journeys to travel
creating doorways
as seconds unravel.
Ages are produced
from day unto day
as life moves on
and time fades away.

Strolling Within

Inside a turnstile
choices may come
forming a journey
 to new days begun.
Strolling in scenes
that trees defend
speaking the words
as whispering wind.
Becoming patterns
minutes exclaim
as strolling within
with life to attain.
We may encounter
a pathway of time
within our strolling
within our mind.
It might enlighten
your heart’s desires
with all the sights
a mindset acquires.
Look deep inside
and see time begin
seeming illusions
strolling within.

Watercolor Dreams

Pictures we’ve taken
might seem to be
watercolor dreams
so timeless to see.
They might enlighten
a stage or a style
of a watercolor scene
that displays a smile.
There may be leaves
of a colorful hue
as pages are turned
to a brand new view.
In essence they show
how time can change
from now and again
in pictures domain.
Photographs taken
might surely show
times as reflections
we used to know.
Moments evolving
into memories scenes
that may come alive
in watercolor dreams.

Haiku
for Aug 28,  2021

Change can be viewpoints
that some see differently
within their own eyes.

Time can be painted
in a photo that you see
that echoes of life.

Stages we walk on
might not be for us alone,
but for others too.

Thinking that your great
at doing what others do
might be in your head.

Listening to self
and not hearing commonsense
might create problems.

Trivial insight
leaves important things helpless,
because it’s not seen.

Trekking down a path
that you may have found one day
might have hidden pain.

Questions unanswered
might haunt us just like a ghost
until we find truth.

Glancing at the sun
can become a blinding sight
or a learning groove.

Making mud from dirt
is like throwing words on lies.
for it helps them spread.

The facts of moments
are often hidden from us
until we seek them.

The leaves of autumn
become as artwork of bliss
textured with colors.

Scenic portrayals
can often be in our mind
as we imagine.

Before and after
there is a moment of thought
about the outcome.

Windows to new views
might show only a dreamworld
that we’re wishing for.

Limitless turnstiles
are filled with destinations
that are good and bad.

The trials of life
are teachers of many sorts
some painful some not.

Living as a weed
that crowds and takes others breaths
is very greedy.

Turbulent storm clouds
may not have a storm within
and just pass us by.

Seasons of windows
display stages of beauty
that many don’t see.

Perception may change
as time turns many pages
becoming a book.

Ages of summer
may reflect within autumn
as winter begins.

Shadows of Memories

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope yall are staying safe and well.
We’re still hanging in there as summer
runs its last course.  It’s 78 F degrees
right now at 6:30 PM.  It’s a stay near
the air conditioner day.  I was thinking
of doing a little mowing,  but I cannot
handle the heat.  Maybe later today :),
but no promises LOL.   The grass isn’t
that bad in needing to be mowed YET.
I sharpened the lawnmower blades the
other day and it doesn’t run the battery
down so quickly as it did before to mow
through the high grass.  I hung Judy’s
birdhouse up the other day.  I screwed
it to the outside of the porch.  Now our
next project is to get her birdbath done
and find a place to sit it,  so it doesn’t
blow away.  Anyways,  we’ll get R done.
I think I’m gonna stop here and go mow
a little bit and finish this later.  See ya.
Rrrrrrrrrrrrr Rrrrrrrrrrrrr Rrrrrrrrrrrr
Rrrrrrrrrrrrr Rrrrrrrrrrrrr Rrrrrrrrrrrr
Ok I mowed a quite bit more than that,
but there ya go hehehe.   I was sweating
like a dog,   literally.  My hands/paws
were sweating.   So now that the mowing
is done,  I can focus on maybe doing a
little writing.  Judy’s behind me at her
desk crocheting.  She seems to like to do
that.  I hope she switches up soon and
does some more paintings.  I love to use
her artwork for poetry pictures. Oh yea,
I finally got busy and got 2 (13 and 14)
more books published.  I am not doing
the Kindle anymore,  just the 8.5″ x 11″
paperback.  I have unpublished all of
the Kindle,  but it may take a month or
so to be removed from Amazon.  I was
not too crazy about doing them in the
Kindle version being they don’t look
as well as they do in the books.  The
books may cost more,  but they’re well
worth it.  I think too many people have
lost the world of reading a good book
or to just get lost in the pages as stories
unfold.  My poetry tells stories and has
lessons within them.  Things I learned
as I went on many journeys through
some often rocky roads that in the end
led to paths needing crossing or turning
back.  Yep,  some of the pathways that
we come across are not meant for us,
but others that you know and that is
often where we may lose track of them.
I have had many good things to come
in my life of which I wish I could bring
back just for a moment,  but they are
only shadows of memories.  I was lucky
to have had the people in my life that I
had as I’m lucky to have the ones that
I have today.  God has put some truly
wonderful people in my life and a few
that I am guessing were meant to teach
me lessons.  Judy and I have had a good
weekend and the passed week wasn’t too
bad either 🙂  I believe Judy is taking her
sister Barb down to Bangor Tuesday for
her check up.  Barb is doing as well as
can be expected.  Please continue with
your prayers for her.   Ok so I think it’s
time for me to be reading back over all
that I’ve written here to see if I can find
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 may
have found me a decent title just about
a 3rd of the way back in my rambling
and now after checking,  I see that it’s
not been used yet,  so used it shall be.
Here goes…

Shadows of Memories

Yesterday’s doorways
are now just memoirs
scenes within scenes
as lessons and scars.
Time  is a foothill
that may become high
shadows of memories
that touch the sky.
Seamless perception
connects many sights
as moments expose
our days and nights.
We might wonder
why things are done
as troubles arrive
in a rising sun.
Oceans of rhythms
become as waves
within the shadows
now which we gaze.
Look for the lessons
in the deepest of seas
found in your mind
shadows of memories.

There ya go.   I hope you liked my poem
and maybe even a little of my rambling 🙂
I can’t think of much else to tell you,  so
I reckon I need to tell you what I tell you
nearly every week and that is, I wrote a
few more poems and haiku.  Yeppers, 10
more poems with 1 Christmas poem in
the mix.  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.  Now I do believe it’s near the
time for me to start my search for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Okey dokey so where can that silly
off switch be trying to hide this time??
LOL now that’s rather interesting.  I’ve
never seen a nose spray bottle dance 🙂
Are ya waltzing with it hehehe?  Oh you
say you’re doing the Texas 2 step huh.
Learn to dance dance on other days.
You were supposed to be hiding, silly.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Life and Fields

Past to present
meets tomorrow
often with fields
we wish to borrow.
Grasses of green
may seem so fine,
but not have all
you wish to dine.
There may be life
of a different view
past to present
that’s not for you.
A sky of blue
and clouds amidst
might show signs
that do coexist.
A sight of beauty,
a sight of gold,
a story,  a venture
to then behold.
So many sights
that time reveals
might only be
of life and fields.

Rainbow of Choice

Colors of a dream
can form in the mind
as rainbows create
a real awesome design.
Formed from a page
of a stage’s history
a rainbow of choice
can be a sight to see.
It’s life in the makings
choices to choose
scenes as our dreams
that time can infuse.
God given blessings
become as a pathway
written within time
of a mind’s rainy day.
The problems of sorts
may become as a tool
as a rainbow of choice
gives essence of fuel.
Listen to the sight
as it speaks its voice
colors of a rhythm
a rainbow of choice.

Bridge of Minds

Living for a future
and not the time
can become empty
as shells of design.
Bridges to moments
might not display
all that’s within
a time’s future day.
Our minds may lose
the footing in style
as we cross bridges
to a future mile.
So often it’s better
to look at a sight
and bridge together
what truly is right.
Seeing what is best
in a moment of life
all that you learned
as passing of strife.
Sometimes a path
can be what defines
the lessons of life on
a bridge of minds.

Summer Unites

Spring comes alive
with all that will be
as summer continues
sights that we see.
The minutes passing
become as a stage
formed by uniting
the age unto age.
Spring’s a memory
living in the times
colors in unison
to fill up our minds.
God gives us beauty
we often don’t see
sights such a colors
so pretty and free.
Yet many people
look on with a frown
as they continue
to just walk around.
Look for the beauty
in God’s given sights
within springtime
as summer unites.

Flowers Designs

Written as beauty
seen as a time
we are the flowers
that so many find.
Yet our beauty
might be degraded
now only showing
a little bit faded.
Time plays a part
in how we bloom
as flowers designs
times come attune.
Scenes that we see
may only be weeds
seeded from many
times dirty deeds.
Take time to find
the truthful details
as flowers designs
of life’s living bells.
Open your heart
to magic of minds
found in a moment
of flowers designs.

Within Passion

Time continues on
as a ticking clock
seasons memories
may seem to talk.
Telling of the tales
of a passing day
as within passion
and a scenic array.
Time might gather
to become sights
seasons of scenes
as days and nights.
For within passion
there may become
a hidden passage
with a rising sun.
You might awaken
your inner eyes
and see the sights
of true blue skies.
You might even
discover a fashion
as magical scenes
within passion.

Timeless Pathways

Country perceptions
create what’s perceived
that of the doorways
thoughts had believed.
Forming a journey
a pathway through eyes
scenes that become as
a sudden surprise.
A road might enlighten
another quick view
that becomes alive
and living within you.
It might be a moment
as a passing scene
with timeless pathways
living as dreams.
Look deeper in time
as the roads appear
and find a memory
of a distant year.
Let it to blossom
and become your gaze
as you travel onto
timeless pathways.

Moments Unite

Time is as a river
a moment of flow
seen as a doorway
as pathways to go.
A story of scenes
that seconds form
uniting rhythms
a time can adorn.
It’s as a pathway
written in the days
as moments unite
in so many ways.
Maybe as a road
that ones travel
or just a journey
as tires on gravel.
Time can be funny
as it finds a smile
creating a window
of a certain style.
Heartbeats begin
with such a sight
seen as dreams
as moments unite.

Snowy Travels

I now remember
times that bestow
so many journeys
pictures of snow.
Travels of style
with scenes inlaid
as snowy echoes
seasons portrayed.
Snowflakes upon
as they end flight
textured as winter
a road of white.
It’s just a journey
a burning ember
of snowy travels
within December.
A Christmas mile
living in dreams
as snowy travels
wonderful scenes.
It’s just a memoir
written in rhyme
a time and place
within my mind.
Living in pictures
how time unravels
wintertime’s sights
of snowy travels.

May Be Summer

It might be spring
that comes in view
when the winter’s
done all it’ll do.
It might seem like
a timeless illusion
or may be summer
within confusion.
The scenes explode
and create a style
opening windows
that times compile.
Just like a phase
of a flowers bloom
it may be summer
that comes attune.
Find the blessings
that colors unite
within the seasons
and birds in flight.
You might find life
that of a drummer
it might be spring
or may be summer.

Living in the now
can help the yesterdays leave
and create changes.

Too much solitude
can create an emptiness
that might destroy you.

Then is a wording
that many use to forget
and not use lessons.

Scenes that we may see
might have many hidden views
that we should strive for.

Glancing back in time
we might see many mistakes
that somehow worked out.

Timid is the wolf
that strolls into a moment
that they lied about.

The minutes that pass
may leave shadows of themselves
that others can see.

Thinking too deeply
you might over think a path
and miss the blessings.

Heaven is alive
with many we remember
and will see again.

Hearing the thunder
of a storm that’s nearing
says look for the rain.

Trials we’ve been through
might be the needed lessons
we’ll need later on.

Finding a true friend
can be the best thing in life
that will help you live.

Connecting doorways
not meant to be connected
can cause you trouble.

Here and thereafter
there might be some reflections
that you do not like.

Heartbeats of loved ones
are found beating in our life
as theirs passes on.

Soon can be too soon
as life’s opportunities
might be out of sync.

When walking alone
you are not truly alone
for God is with you.

Today gives chances
that yesterday did not see,
so use them wisely.

Arrogant people
may one day see reflections
of their wrongful ways.

Challenging a heart
to beat faster than it can
might have sad endings.

Travels of the mind
can take us on a journey
when bodies cannot.

Breathing in a breath
of a morning’s aroma
can give you a smile.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you have had a decent weekend
and the passed week went well.  We did
much of the same as always and played
it by ear.  Yep,  I’m still busy writing and
whatnot and Judy’s still busy crocheting.
We do other things,  but that is the most
of what we do anymore.  We have many
TV programs that we both like to watch
and we enjoy that.  Yep,  we live a fairly
mundane lifestyle in many eyes,  but we
like it.  Judy’s sister Barbara is doing as
well as possible.  Judy took her shopping
the week before last and I just now went
and downloaded the picture of Barbara
riding in the Walmart scooter 🙂  I’ll put
the picture in my stationery.  Yep,  I am
happy to see Barb not giving up.  She’s
a great gal and I love her.  So,  what else
has gone on around this place?  Well to
be honest,  it has been quite boring,  but
that is when I begin writing.  I try not to
write and create more than 10 poetry
pictures in a week’s time,  but sometimes
it’s impossible,  so OH well,  hehehehe
no harm done.  Saturday,  Judy went for
Craft night and went by and picked up
her sisters Barb and Dena to take them.
They must of had a great time,  Judy
didn’t get home till after midnight and
she said,  they spent more time visiting
than making crafts so I will have to help
her with the bird bath by drilling holes
and such.  She painted a birdhouse and
said she wants it hung,  but doesn’t know
where.  I said I would hang it somewhere
on the outside of the porch.  Anyways,
it’ll get done 🙂  I did some more mowing
Thursday and cleared us a path out to
the field,  so today we took the boys out
for a little field trip.  They always love
it when we take them out there and let
them explore.  Judy and I took loads
of pictures of them while they romped
and played LOL.  For those of you that
are new to my journal,  when I say our
boys I am speaking of our dogs Benny
and Rocky.  Anyways,  while we were
out in the field I saw a few places I had
missed with the mower so when we got
back to the house I took the mower out
and cleaned up the spots that I missed.
Our little 40 volt lawnmower has done
us well since we bought it in 2018,  but
it does require being pushed LOL.  Plus
it’s only 16 inches wide,  so I often feel
as though I have walked to town and
back after mowing LOL.  I have to stop
and rest every few moments, because my
 old legs nearly give out,  but we have
some benches in front of the porch that
I can sit and rest on.  It’s looking like
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 away I go to that lil
place of my recollection that I like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  With that
said,  I am off.   Well it’s looking like
I may of stumbled on a decent title just
about a third of the way from the start
of my rambling and now after checking
I see that it has not been used as of yet,
so used it shall be today.  Here goes…

Don’t let moments
of boredom to strive
when you are trying
to just stay alive.
Look for the tools
to use everyday
as you create more
that’s within your way.
Your own perception
and your own style
create what is you
and then give a smile.
Learn to look inwards
and see all the tools
finding the doorways
to life’s living schools.
Don’t let your anger
to prevent what’s good
for often our mistakes
are misunderstood.
Open up your mind
and walk in the door
with all of God’s gifts
then go create more.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even some of my rambling 🙂
I know many times that my poetry may
not be understood by you,  but the ones
it’s meant for will get it.  That’s about all
I’ve got for ya this week aside from what
I tell you every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers 10
more poems with 1 Christmas poem in the
mix.  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.
Now,  I do believe it’s time for me to begin
my search for the hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Okey dokey now,  where can that
ornery lil off switch be attempting to hide
this time?????  Hmmm,  I see my battery
tester moving a little bit,  when it should
not be moving at all.  LOL are you seeing
if ya have a charge hehehe?  Silly,  you’ve
got no current.  You’re just a switch LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Days and Weeks

Tomorrows roads
we seek to travel
may be pavement
or may be gravel.
As certain scenes
become our view
days and weeks
are traveled to.
A scent we smell
that passes us by
just may become
hello or goodbye.
For as a mountain
finds the stage
days and weeks
are age to age.
Seek the lessons
within each time
and then wisely
open your mind.
Times and places
lows and peaks
may have answers
days and weeks.

Breath of Dreams

Breathe in deeply
time that’s there
breath of dreams
a breath of air.
Search your mind
and find a clue
dreams of essence
within your view.
They may live on
inside a place
with perspective
dreamers grace.
Waters rippling
bestowing styles
breath of dreams
of scenic smiles.
Let your mind to
float in streams
as life and love
breath of dreams.

Autumn Pleasures

The season shines
as golden leaves
scenes as dreams
of autumn trees.
God’s on light
becomes a glow
that of paintings
in a seasonal show.
Blessed moments
come in view
autumn pleasures
from old to new.
Just like a dream
that becomes real
autumn pleasures
a heart can feel.
So many pictures
seem to shine
autumn pleasures
as times design.
Moments uniting
to become as art
autumn pleasures
to then impart.
As the pages turn
they leave a face
formed in leaves
as Godly grace.
Scenic sights
are as treasures
found as golden
autumn pleasures.

Hello To Today

Marvelous scenes
come into view
and they may say
how do you do.
Streams of silence
give words of time
scenic scenarios
to fill up the mind.
So say hello now
to things you see
such as moments
God gave for free.
Maybe a pond
or maybe a view
that is now there
in front of you.
It might ripple
or just reflect
a time and place
you recollect.
You might recall
what faded away
so take the time to
say hello to today.

Daisies of Summer

A Summer fancy
as dreams come true
daisies of summer
become as the view.
Showing of white
and yellow within
these little flowers
may then transcend.
Becoming as seed
to ride in a breeze
to plant once again
avoiding the freeze.
For winter’s chill
becomes the scene
as all the daisies
become as a dream.
Waiting for spring
and summer’s sun
the daisies sleep on
till then is begun.
Waiting the rains
in skies of thunder
to become seen as
daisies of summer.

Friends Unite

Strolling along
on a beach of time
friends can become
a wondrous design.
Maybe just walking
on a sandy beach
maybe in the mind,
but far from reach.
Still the friendship
will hold like glue
if the friendship
is really so true.
When friends unite
and truth is made
the distance watches
the miles degrade.
For as true friends
the love can soar
to become a flight
that’s forevermore.
So as you wander
with the living light
know there’s magic
when friends unite.

Winter Windows

Snow has landed
on the trees
winter windows
with a breeze.
A sky of blue
makes it shine
time’s disbanded
winter’s mind.
Christmas sights
in snow of white
winter windows
eyes delight.
Many memories
sung in tune
are of Christmas
coming soon.
Scenic blessings
are then born
many memoirs
Christmas morn.
Find the pictures
to help remember
winter windows
of December.

Different Styles

Things we want
as daily views
might not be the
best to choose.
Often wantings
are just a flame
found as breath
sought to attain.
We might find
a certain place
within moments
within a face.
A passing fling
might be found
with you surly
turning around.
So many paths
we travel on
might be only
dusk to dawn.
They might not
be right for you
so just do what
you need to do.
We might see
so many miles
found in many
different styles.

Eve Arrives

The sun is sinking
as colors unite
when the evening
greets the night.
Time might recall
a wondrous view
yellow to orange
a magical hue.
Look within time
and find a breath
as eve arrives
with its very best.
Scenic wonders
become a form
as time is done
and night is born.
Tranquil emotions
seen in the skies
when day is done
and eve arrives.

Storms Create

So many storms
will only be seen
that of nightmares
not of a dream.
Creating moments
time remembers
storms of emotion
more than embers.
A storm can form
a wondrous sight
just like rainbows
colors of light.
Strength is found
within the weather
as storms create
to put us together.
Uniting strengths
to weather a storm
time passes on
for better to form.
So many blessings
do surely await
after the rains
the storms create.

Haiku
for Aug 14,  2021

Time is a moment
that so many will miscount
and miss the good times.

Our doors and windows
might become as collections
of bad memories.

Scenes that we perceive
can often be imagined
and not really there.

Links to our sorrow
might be within memories
that’s become baggage.

Thoughts we encompass
can often be illusions
that are only dreams.

Flavors of icecream
describe personalities
within their tastebuds.

A scenic treasure
can be a day with blue skies
with clouds passing by.

The leaves of autumn
show us their many colors
to enhance the time.

People that will lie
to befriend yet another,
will find emptiness.

When trying too hard
you might forget your purpose
and lose direction.

Life unleashes dreams
in form of chances to take
that might turn sour.

Visions of artwork
are found in many people
by how they do things.

Fertilizing thoughts
with the manure of lies
can become nasty.

Tomorrow’s essence
may be found within today
as a little seed.

As a chain of links
we can create a fence
that keeps ones away.

Sliding down a slide
you might not know the outcome
of how you will land.

Various pathways
lead us to and from our roads,
but they might connect.

When glancing upwards
you might perceive birds in flight
that wake up your mind.

Many challenges
are there to teach us better
or show our limits.

Finding a penny
that was lying on the ground
gives you a penny.

Trees will speak loudly
as a breeze passes through them
and sound like a song.

News that’s only lies
can create many problems
with ones that believe.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you’re doing well.  We’re still among
the living or the semblance of it as the days
move forward 🙂  Judy and I drove down to
Cutler Maine Wednesday of last week.  Yep
and we took a lot of pictures.  Now I have a
few more to use for my poetry.  I did some
more mowing.  I mow for two reasons and
they are firstly to mow the grass and then of
course secondly for exercise.  People keep
saying I need to get me a riding lawnmower,
but I would get no exercise on a rider LOL,
yet I may invest on one some day if I can
ever find one I can afford,  being there will
come the day I will not be able to push the
mower.  Hopefully though that is a while
off hehehe.  So,  what else is going on up
this way?   Well,  I managed to get Judy’s
plant hangers hung,  but I needed to go to
town to buy better screws than what the
plant hangers came with and I also bought
some fence wire to use for more support
on the topside of the hangers.  I’ll change
out the screws and all and put the wires
 on sometime this week.  Judy’s got her
lil Tinman sitting outside with the plants.
She has plans on making a birdbath for
next Saturdays craft night.  While we were
shopping yesterday we went to find things
she thought she would need for making
her birdbath.  We both stay busy quite
often creating things.  I spend much of
my time writing and designing poetry
pictures mainly because I enjoy doing
them.  Not for the money LOL.  Surely
if I were doing them for the money,  I
would of stopped long ago,  because I
am not making much on them hehehe.
They do though keep my brain active as
well as give me something to do to keep
my mind busy.  BUT,  if you would ever
want to own a book of mine,  the link is
at the bottom of the journal to go and
buy ya one or two 🙂  Anyways,  on with
my journal.  It has been a tad warm up
this way the passed few days.  I hoped
that summer was done,  but it seems to
have a few more days left to make me
sweat.  Today’s forecasted high is for
78 F which it is right now at 6:30 PM 🙂
Monday’s forecast is for 78 as well,  but
then 82 for Tuesday and Wednesday 🙂
Right now my weather program shows
90 for Thursday,  but that can change.
I’m so thankful for this air conditioner
that I bought us many years ago.  If it
weren’t for it,  I would be a puddle in
the floor LOL.  The clouds were so very
pretty when Judy and I went in to town
Saturday,  I had to take pictures of them
and so I took a bunch 🙂  I reckon I will
be using a few of them for writing poems.
LOL  My head stays in the clouds often
and sometimes gets hit by lightning LOL.
Lightning is the same as ideas in my view.
Yep,  I do tend to think too much which
makes it hard to sleep hehehe.  I’m on a
living elevator that keeps going up with
the numbers.  I wish it would slow down,
but I guess you cannot stop aging unless
ya die hehehe.  I though would like to
end the aches and pains that I’ve gotta
deal with every day of my life.  They do
get old.  Oh well,  that’s life.  Judy and I
enjoy our time together doing little things
such as watching TV or just sitting in the
room together ever so often smiling at
one another.  Yep,  we live a quiet life.
I still find myself wishing that I could see
a few of my friends or family members
time to time,  but I guess it’s just a dream
that I keep dreaming.  I do enjoy my time
in the peace and quiet up here,  being we
live out in the boonies,  but time to time
I find myself missing people.  I guess
that’s part the course of living out in the
country and many miles from people that
I know.  I’m glad I have my photography
and poetry to keep me occupied,  because
without it,  I would die of boredom.  Yep,
I am so very glad that God gave me these
gifts that I can use to make it through life,
but most of all I am glad He brought Judy
into my life.  She is my very best friend
and she doesn’t judge me for my many
flaws.  God has always been looking out
for me even when I was unaware of Him
even being around.  God has always done
what He knew was best and He allowed all
that He knew would be good lessons for
me to learn.  Thank You God for always
loving me and for loving us as we strive
on through life to find the pages of our
life that we belong.  AMEN.  Now I do
believe it’s time for me to read back on
all that I’ve written here to see if I can
find 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.  It seems I
may have stumbled upon a decent title
just about 2 quarters of the way back in
my rambling and now after checking,  I
see that it has not been used yet,  so used
it shall be today.  Here goes…

Wishing

Times we travel
with our minds
finds us wishing
for other times.
Seasons journey
of fast and slow
wishing for ways
and places to go.
Often memories
become as a view
forming wishing
they were anew.
Within a window
of now an again
wishing becomes
a season’s wind.
Blowing bestowing
a dream of fishing
with a loved one
becomes wishing.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even a bit of my rambling :).
Yep,  it’s been a little warm up here,  but
I’m quite sure it has been warmer down
in Texas and other southern states.  I do
not miss the triple digit temps.  They’re
too hot for me.  80 is too hot for me and
on those days and warmer I stay in front
of the AC when I am able.  The same goes
for the boys.  They have a lot of hair and
often lay on front of the fans.  Judy’s not
as hot natured as I am,  but she enjoys
the AC too 🙂  Anyways,  Judy’s sister is
doing as good as to be expected.  Judy
took Barbara to Walmart Friday and
Barb rode in a Walmart scooter and did
some shopping.  The radiation treatments
seem to be doing her fairly good.  They
ceased chemo on her due to many issues.
I’m happy that she is not giving up the
ship.  I love her bunches.  Barbara was
the one that found us a place to live up
here and it’s where we are now 13 years
nearing 14 years later 🙂  I’ve learned
how to deal with the climate up here 🙂
Well that’s about all I have for ya other
than what I tell you every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems with 1 Christmas
poem in the mix.  I also wrote 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
is time for me to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you all a most wonderful
and blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Okey
dokey,  so now where can that ornery
off switch be trying to hide this time?
Looking in all of its recent hiding spots.
LOL,  I do believe I see a lil movement
from behind the internet DSL modem.
Yep,  I see ya you silly thing.  Was it
a little hot back there hehehe?  It does
tend to get warm.  Try a cooler place
maybe next time that’s not easy to see.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Summer’s Ocean

Seasons remembered
our pictures enhance
remind of summers
a wonderful glance.
Scenes as the waves
that roll in and out
as summer’s ocean
is tossed all about.
Strolling all around
in the summer sun
enjoying the seconds
as each one’s begun.
Time’s a photograph
a painting of style
formed as a breath
of memory’s smile.
Shining still within
as the pictures recall
scenic summertime
that still stands tall.
Found as a moment
that’s written within
words of a journal
that times transcend.
Bringing the scenes
once again in motion
found in memories
of summer’s ocean.

Yesterdays Winters

Doorways remembered
as Christmas goes by
become our memories
within our minds eye.
The snow on the ground
as a season of bliss
in yesterdays winters
as Christmastime’s kiss.
Remembering moments
that came to explore
in yesterdays winters
a time long before.
Christmas was coming,
but not yet the day,
for within November
it was reflections array.
All that was within us
as our heartbeats beat
was that of Christmas
a time soon to meet.
Life within memories
is as Christmas dinners
found as heartbeats
in yesterdays winters.

Serenity Path

Life might show
a path to begin
seeming to blow
within the wind.
It might display
a sight to see
that of a breath
within serenity.
It might become
paths to explore
seasoned of life
as times before.
It may be a day
a reflected time
that of serenity
within the mind.
It might be only
a shadow’s cast
showing a scene
of serenity path.

as walls may form
from age unto age.
Becoming windows
that a time installs
we might pass by
warnings and walls.
Some speak true
of what that’s there
and others leave
to treat you unfair.
A passing phase
that comes in view
might hold a sight
you take with you.
It might be a scene
that moments adorn
found on a day
that walls may form.

Season Summery

Remembering days
of a summer breeze
season of summer
with green tree leaves.
Scented of moments
of fragrance divine
a season summery
that stays on a mind.
It forms attachments
as heartbeats of gold
as a season summery
of young unto old.
Found as a memory,
found as a sight
that unfolds stories
within the daylight.
These are the pictures
that come into play
as a season summery
a time and a day.
They become a story
in words of a time
as a season summery
that fills up the mind.

The Pelican

This bird it flies
in search of meals
within the ocean
that time conceals.
Yet it looks down
below the waves
and finds its dinner
as a distant gaze.
It swoops on down
to fill up its beak
and then to land
to fill its physique.
They often will eat
while flying around
if they’re unable
to find any ground.
It so often will eat
anything that it can
if it’s not too large
for the pelican.

Sometime Someplace

Sometime may discover
a place that refines
a moment of a place
with awesome designs.
There might be colors
or maybe just a sight
in sometime someplace
of a smile or fright.
It might seem a pattern
as a Halloween scene
a black cat discovered
as nightmare or dream.
Seasons become alive
with pages of leaves
as scenes that enlighten
how a dreamer believes.
Often all that’s there
is but only in our mind
as sometime someplace
is a moment to find.
Unfolding the pages
of ages that appear
as sometime someplace
that might give fear.
Yet many moments
are but only just a trace
of a season many love
sometime someplace.

Winter Instills

Windows of winter
will open to show
a season of blissful
of white fallen snow.
As enacted stages
performed of a time
winter becomes as
a great place to find.
Found as a blessing
snow pearly white
glowing bestowing
a season’s delight.
We might remember
a momentous scene
that used display
the leaves of green.
Yet they are gone
as snow falls down
leaving the leaves in
snow on the ground.
Then in the distance
the season reveals
the wondrous beauty
that winter instills.

Do Not Enter

Many times paths
that we come across
might have a gain
or might have a loss.
There may be a gate
that says no entry
telling of the tales
that are hard to see.
The gate may seem
as a rusted design
telling of the tales
of another fine time.
It may be forgotten
yet standing in place
preventing passage
to a time and space.
The sign on the gate
seen front and center
might be of old
saying do not enter.

Adventurous Roads

Time is a journey
that joins our gaze
forming adventures
for future displays.
A rocky perspective
that many drive on
might be the key to
another time’s dawn.
There may be bumps
among many holes
that tell of the tales
of how a wheel rolls.
It might hum a tune
as you drive along
a tune you remember
the sound of a song.
Adventures begin
as time is entailed
on an old dusty road
as breath is exhaled.
So many memories
the moment bestows
when driving upon
adventurous roads.

Haiku
for Aug 7,  2021

Green leaves of summer
become colors of autumn
as time goes its way.

Heartbreaking seconds
are engulfed in the minutes
while hours pass by.

Living for moments
can become empty doorways,
so learn to look on.

Emptying pockets
of a timeless perception
can form confusion.

Threads of a needle
can sew up an illusion
if it’s done just right.

Time is the keeper
of the things that pass us by
that become memoirs.

Traveling down roads
that we have no knowledge of
can lead to problems.

Looking for a smile
amidst some frowning faces,
you may need to smile.

Windows we look through
might not be showing the truth,
for they might be stained.

Glancing at someone
you might not see what’s within,
but just what’s exposed.

Scenes we discover
may have been there all the while
as we passed them by.

Thinking too deeply
you might find yourself involved
in what that’s not there.

Heartbeats that unite
can become a greater tool
to create lifetimes.

Caught in a rainstorm
you might notice some lightning
followed by thunder.

Pathways that we choose
can often become coffins
buried in the past.

Feeling a raindrop
as it lands upon your head,
may make you refreshed.

Building a lifestyle
from many broken pieces
you might find it stands.

Sought after drumbeats
of another type of life
can create a song.

Living in a hole
you’ve been digging for a while
will one day get old.

Changes in a field
might be only in your mind
and just flourishing.

Time is disturbing
when wishes,  dreams and prayers
get mixed together.

A forest of thought
can depict many viewpoints
that may be just leaves.

Taking Rides

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been cooling off with each passing
day.  It’s supposed to be in the mid 70’s
forecasted for most of the next few weeks
and I have no problem with that,  but it
seems our Monday’s forecast is for a high
of 67 F 🙂  That works for me as well too.
Yep,  this is the kind of summer temps I
can handle,  although we do miss being
able to drive down to Port Aransas when
we got the time.  It’s many miles away
now.  Maybe one day we will make a trip
to Texas again,  if we are able and can
afford it.  It’s 73 right now at our home
and it’s 5:14 PM.  Not bad.  We’ve got
our windows opened to let in some fresh
air.  We’re making plans on taking us a
little picture taking drive in the next few
days.  We will be taking more drives as
we decide where to go.  I can’t wait.  I
love to go on picture taking rides.  being
our drives to and from town repeat the
pictures.  So,  it’ll be nice to get a few
new pictures to use for my poetry. I do
though need to start working on getting
more of my work published.  I’ll try my
best to kick myself in the butt and get
it done one day hopefully soon.  Judy is
still busy crocheting and searching the
internet to find more things to crochet.
Yep,  she’s downloading patterns for
crocheting and watching a few Youtube
videos.  Living up here has made me to
change many of my ways,  such as my
ability to see family or friends.  I am
often very depressed because of that,
but there’s nothing I can do,  so I try
my best to make do.  I guess that sort
of explains why I do so many poetry
pictures hehehe.  I plan on doing  a few
music videos this week as well as seeing
about attaching the plant hangers to
the outside of our porch.  I have not
been getting around so well lately,  but
I’m doing a little better now.  It sucks
when your mind is still wide eyed and
bushy tailed,  but your body is going
gray and arthritic.  LOL Anyways,  life
goes on until it lands on a new path to
travel,  either up or down,  hopefully
prayerfully up :).  Yep,  My old body’s
about done.  My mind and brain are
still very alert,  but they cannot fool my
body into believing it is young again 🙂
Oh yea,  did anybody notice that July
is gone.  Where in the heck did it go?
It seems Judy and I were sitting talking
and Judy noticed her calendar and said
it’s not July anymore,  and she changed
it to August.  I’ll be 65 August 31 and
nobody asked me if I wanted to change
age LOL.  My mind says try to convince
my body that it’s 30 again,  but my body
is not falling for it again hehehehe.  The
last time I tried that I ended up many
miles away thinking that a 7 mile walk
wouldn’t hurt me hahaha.  Yea right 🙂
My legs nearly never forgave me LOL.
My old body isn’t falling for that again.
Well,  it’s 73 degrees now at 6:42 PM
and we can hear some birds chirping
outside of our window.  It’s bright and
sunny outside.  A lovely day.  God’s still
watching over us.  Even though we have
problems time to time,  we manage to
make it and grow.  God has sent many
angels to watch over us.  We also have
many sweet spirits that keep tabs on us
from day to day.  Yep,  God is still great.
He does for us what we are unable to do,
or allows what He knows that we need
in our life to help us to grow.  So now I
reckon it’s time for me to read back on
all that I’ve written here to see if I can
find a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem
and so it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I seem to always call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may of
found a fairly decent title about a 3rd of
the way from the beginning of my ongoing
rambling and now after checking,  I see
that it has not been used yet,  so used it
shall be.  Here goes…

Taking Rides

Roads we travel
may have times
seen as people
with crazy minds.
Yet they may be
but only driven
on the lifestyle
they were given.
It takes time
to change a path
then to there
as shadows cast.
Learn to look
and see the view
what that’s false,
what that’s true.
Lose the judgment
a time applies
and find blessings
when taking rides.

I know the poem isn’t that great,  but it’s
the best I could do quickly with that title.
I hope you liked the poem and possibly
even a bit of my rambling hehehe.  Judy’s
sister Barbara is doing OK considering the
situation.  Please keep her in your prayers.
Well,  that’s about all I have for ya other
than what I tell you every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems and 1 of them is a
Christmas poem.  I also wrote 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 I believe it is
time for me to begin my search for that
ornery off switch,   but not before I wish
you a wonderful blessings filled week and
that you find many smiles.  Now,  where
can that silly off switch be trying to hide
this time?  Hmm,  looking on my desk
and looking under it.  Now looking beside
it,  LOL  OK,  I see ya you silly thing LOL.
Trying to hide among my many battery
chargers would of worked if you were not
so fidgety.  You made my charger for my
hearing aid to sort of bounce and catch
my attention.   Try to learn to stay still 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Just Saying Hello

Many that pass us
with a single glance
might have a story
their eyes enhance.
Yet oh so often
we only see smiles
maybe just phony
carried for miles.
You may see some
with wagging tails
just saying hello
as love prevails.
They may look like
a certain song
sung of a moment
as time moves on.
They might have
a passionate glow
truly wanting to
just say hello.

Darkening Clouds

A sky of emotion
flows as a breeze
creating pathways
our time perceives.
When looking up
you may see gray
darkening clouds
in a magical way.
Rain may begin
as time moves on
in clouds of gray
that sing a song.
Singing of seasons
floating in the sky
darkening clouds
that may pass by.
They give us rain
or just but a view
seen from windows
with a cloudy hue.
Time might display
what life endows
rain and rainbows
darkening clouds.

Just a Moose

Through our life
we might not see
what that’s truly
standing so free.
We might only
see such a time
that lives within
our daily mind.
So often things
may just confuse
whether a win,
whether a lose.
We might need
to clear our eyes
and see the truth
and not just lies.
So many times
we might deduce
that its troubles,
but just a moose.

Walking Up

Living for moments
might become when
time’s walking up
with now and again.
You may remember
and you might recall
a time and a place
that stands out tall.
Maybe of a person
or four legged friend
within a memory
that times transcend.
You might even see
a ghost of a day
that’s illuminating
a wondrous array.
It might be a sound
or picture of a view
within a memory
that thrives so true.
It might be a friend
a beating heart
now a loving spirit
that’s never apart.
Living as memories
within a photograph
life continues on
with future and past.
Let love to continue
as water from a cup
even in a picture
of time walking up.

Glancing Rails

Timeless travel
trains might move
leaving patterns
railways groove.
Forming windows
within the mind
the glancing rails
may then unwind.
Creating pictures
as a photograph
remembered time
as shadows cast.
Just like a glance
a sudden view
the rails soon say
how do you do.
They may become
a timeless door
for you and me
to surely explore.
Then as a blessing
it tells of tales
of a train of time
on glancing rails.

Snow Begins

Standing so still
as snow falls down
the winter breeze
blows snow around.
Become as scenes
pictures to take
as the snow begins
with winter awake.
Many may smile
and enjoy the view
while some others
will wish to undo.
Yet it is a season
that some embrace
one of a moment
with a smiling face.
Enjoy the weather
with all it may be
as time comes alive
with all you see.
You may be stood
in winter’s winds
the moment in time
the snow begins.

Seeking To Arrive

Our daily journeys
might just become
a pathway in time
as second to none.
Seeking a pleasure
or moment’s gain
we might discover
a pathway of pain.
Yet in our travels
we may just find
scenes of splendor
within wintertime.
There may be snow
of Christmas array
seen on the roads
in a joyous display.
Winter’s perfection
on a scenic drive
Christmas awakens
seeking to arrive.

Mornings Come

Inside a moment
might live a sky
as oceans of time
a sunshine reply.
There may be eyes
of a distant array
looking right back
in a timeless way.
Eyes of a dream
might be a glare
as mornings come
in awesome flair
Becoming alive
as waves will roll
when the sun rises
to reach its goal.
Time is a turnstile
creating glimmers
scenes as dreams
a moment enters.
Find the blessings
of a season’s sun
when you perceive
mornings come.

Walking Into Waves

So many emotions
come from a time
found within waves
of an angry mind.
Times of confusion
might become seen
creating nightmares
within life’s dreams.
Walking into waves
might unleash pain
seasons of scenes
you should abstain.
Watch your footing
within your stride
and don’t let anger
to live deep inside.
Loosen your hold
on anger and hate
and find peaceful
that you can relate.
Open the portal
to better displays
than seeking pain
walking into waves.

Tracks of Memories

Living as echoes
our memories flow
often as wintertime
found in the snow.
Tracks of windows
that we see through
might be illusions
of then thereunto.
They may be tracks
of a distant time
laid down one day
inside of our mind.
Maybe with a view
of a distant sky
tracks of memories
the minutes apply.
Seconds tick on
from night to day
as many memories
just fade away
Leaving only time
as a winter freeze
displaying scenes
tracks of memories.

Haiku
for July 31,  2021

Various choices
create various pathways
that we need to take.

Time is a journey
found with many illusions
that may become real.

Shadows of ourselves
are found within the heartbeats
of ones that follow.

Traveling through life
you might discover some doors
that need left alone.

Today’s memories
in our yesterdays visions
might be regretful.

Ungrateful people
will come into our pathways
and leave us with stains.

The sun shines brightly
even when we cannot see it,
so have faith in life.

Treading on eggshells
you might become worrisome,
but some need cracking.

Pages of a journal
might be filled full of nightmares
that turned into dreams.

Storming towards clouds
you might find many troubles
hidden within them.

Limits on doorways
are often for a reason
as they’re meant for times.

Harboring anger
in the years that pass us by,
you might find ulcers.

Windows in doorways
might allow a view within
to see what is there.

Stages of our lives
may begin really tiny,
but grow to be large.

Looking for a time
to become what it is not
can form misery.

Traveling mindsets
can often become confused
with a crooked trail.

Legends we hear of
might not be reality,
but they may teach us.

Longing for a path
that’s not meant for you to take
can slow down your growth.

Grading on the curve
we might often let things slide
because we like them.

Time becomes deadends
when we repeat our mistakes
trying to find change.

Tomorrow becomes now
when yesterday becomes then
and they both collide.

Watching the starlight
the sky might seem to have eyes
looking back at you.
