ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been?  I took a vacation last
week from writing my journal being it was
Easter 🙂  Judy and I went to her twin sister’s
house and we celebrated Easter with all of the
family that made it over there.  We ate some
good food and played some games.  It was
a great day although I was sad that I could
not be with any of my family,  my immediate
family that is.  I guess it could be worse,  but
still miss my family as well as my good friends
that live in Texas and thereabouts.  Oh well,
life goes on.  The weather is still playing on
and off with the freezing and not hehehehe.
I had to order us some heating oil being we
were just about to run out.  Our grandson
Christian asked the other day if he could
come and spend the night with us either
this Sunday or next.  I said sure.  You are
always welcomed.  So he said,  let’s make it
next Sunday.  We’re needing to cut up boxes
and all that have been strewn in the living
room so he can sleep on the futon hehehe.
I reckon we will get on that pretty quick.
We bought a burn barrel and a grate that
fits on top of it to prevent anything from
flying out.   We’re gonna burn these boxes.
So what else is going on around this place?
Well,  Rocky is doing good.  He’s as ornery
as ever.  He’s our alarm clock.  He will not
let us sleep passed 4 PM no matter if we’ve
not gotten to bed or gone to sleep until 6
AM LOL.  Yep,  he starts pawing at the bed
on Judy’s side of the bed of course hehehe,
but I feel it too.  I am a very light sleeper
when in fact I am able to sleep at all which
is a rare thing LOL.  It’s 53 F degrees right
now at 7 PM.  By tomorrow morning it is
supposed to be 30 F LOL.  So you see what
I mean about the weather playing its little
game of on and off hehehe.  There are still
a few patches of snow here and there where
the sun don’t shine.  LOL I looked at this
week’s forecast and it is supposed to snow
this coming Friday.  Not a lot,  but still 🙂
Yep,  compared to Texas weather,  this is
winter weather hahaha.  We have often
still had a lot of snow even as far as May.
It took me a few years to get used to the
weather up here,  but now the thing to
get used to is all of the ice that follows
the snow creating walking and driving
hazards.  That’s something I might never
get used to.  Yet there are things in many
place that we live that one might never
get used to.  It’s just the matter of what
you can deal with the best or accept.  I
have been having to learn to accept the
way things are being that I can’t change
the way things are up here.  I’ve met a
lot of idiots hehehe.  The ones that think
they can drive the same speed on a icy
or wet road as they do on a dry road 🙂
Yeppers,  they come up behind us and
Judy and I just let them pass us.  We
figure we’ll see them down the road a
bit in the ditch or worse.  Some people
have no common sense.  Anyways,  we
are doing well.  Judy and I spend a lot
of time watching our favorite programs
on TV if we’re not amidst our hobbies.
Sometimes we’ll watch TV while we are
doing our hobbies writing or knitting.
LOL ain’t we exciting!  I hope you all
had a happy Easter or at the very least
a peaceful one.  God has been good to
us as He continues to watch over us and
do what we are unable as well as sending
many angels to watch over us allowing
kindly spirits to intervene time to time
to give us a nudge in the right direction.
Thank You God for all that You have
done for us and all that You will do if
You see the need.  Please watch over
all of our family and friends as well as
the others that are in dire need of Your
 love and care.  AMEN and AMEN…
Now I do believe it is time for me to be
reading back over all that I have 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 may have found me a
decent title just about a 3rd of the way
back in my rambling and now after I’ve
checking I see that it has not been used
yet,  so used it shall be.  Here goes…

He Continues

Time is a moment
a passing phase
found as a turnstile
of age unto age.
God’s always there
watching our path
as He continues to
teach from the past.
He’s often waiting
for us to recall
a time in our life
that we lost it all.
Then to look ahead
and become stronger
learning the lessons
to help a little longer.
We might fall prey
to doubt and fear,
but He continues
to be very near.
He’s always awaiting
our voice in the air
seeking His guidance
found in a prayer.
So in the moments
let lessons be found
as He continues
to guide you around.

There ya go.  I know it might not be one
of my best poems,  but hopefully you get
the point.  So,  that’s about all I have for
ya aside from what I tell you nearly every
week and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  LOL actually I wrote them all
last week before Easter.  I have written a
few this passed week,  but I’m gonna wait
and share them with ya next Sunday :).
Anyways,  a week ago I wrote 10 poems
and 22 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 see if I can find
that hardly elusive off switch,  but surely
not before I wish you a blessing filled week.
Remember.  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now,  where’s that silly off switch trying
to hide this time?  It’s had an extra week
to search for a good hiding spot hehehe,
but I doubt that it did anything, but
flipped itself on and off trying to make
the lights flicker LOL.  Hmm,  I think I
see a little movement behind my camera.
My good camera that is 🙂  What are you
up to this time?  Surely not trying to take
a selfie hehehe. You need to be in front
of the camera,  not behind it.  You can’t
take your picture in the view finder that
is in back LOL.  I guess you forgot what
day it is huh.  Next week,  try harder 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Be as a Star

Search within
and find a place
a star to shine
upon your face.
Seek a blessing
amidst the day
as you shine
a magical way.
Be as a star
shining bright
or in a scene
sands of light.
Let your mind
wonder about
seasons of life
not with doubt.
Open your eyes
be who you are
the best you can
be as a star.

Dreamers Illusions

With just a dream
a place can reveal
snow as of winter
a season’s appeal.
Textured as time
scented as a phase
dreamers illusions
of seasonal days.
We may remember
a passing breeze
within our minds
as leaves on trees.
Dreams can instill
a heavenly stage
that is imagined
from age unto age.
The turn of times
can become found
within the illusions
of sight and sound.
Yet as time passes
found in confusion
we might only see
dreamers illusions.

Gifts of the Past

Minds of moments
that times bestow
become as the gifts
that we love so.
They might be life
of a distant age
or our reflections
a turn of a page.
The pictures seen
might hold in view
a time and place
that thrives in you.
It might be a gift
the love of a smile
a timeless friend
a four legged style.
You might even
recall the scene
seeming a shadow
a wondrous dream.
It might portray
a moment so vast
Heaven’s blessings
gifts of the past.

Discerning Life

Clouds might form
within our eyes
and fill our hearts
with tearful skies.
Raining droplets
upon the sights
discerning seconds
as dimmest lights.
Search for scenes
with a better view
behind the clouds
in a sky of blue.
You might then
find your way
to discerning life
of a better day.
Say a little prayer
and seek the love
that lives within
from God above.
Find the portions
of hearts desires
and let them grow
as Heaven’s fires.
Allow the clouds
to cease of strife
as you continue
discerning life.

Easter Reflections

So many memories
and so many styles
is Easter reflections
a season of smiles.
Thankful for Jesus
and all of His love
as Easter reflections
from God up above.
Time is as artwork
found within frame
as Easter reflections
our heartbeats attain.
Grasping for times
as our connections
may be moments of
Easter reflections.

Easter Art

Now and then
a time begins
seasons as of
passing winds.
Life moves on
then is now
as Easter art
the times allow.
With our eyes
we may view
seasons sights
of old and new.
God gives life
into our heart
from His son
as Easter art.

Passing of Phase

Up over a hill
might be a time
seen as a portal
of eve of design.
Sunshine seen
as a scenic sight
a passing phase
into the night.
You may travel
with true desire
seeking for time
as heartfelt fire.
It may be false
or an illusion
with the passing
scenic confusion.
Look for the joy
in coming days
for it might be
passing of phase.

Light Transforms

An evening sky
with light at crest
shines so bright
as night’s abreast.
Scenes we find
amidst the sights
become as dreams
within the nights.
Light transforms
and creates views
colors changing
into many hues.
Maybe of orange
with a yellow tint
or maybe gray
as times imprint.
Clouds may form
and live within
as evenings come
and nights begin.
It might look like
a heart of gold
with a sky of eve
and stories told.
Bringing essence
seeming as storms
timeless scenes as
light transforms.

Illuminating Sky

With just a glance
we might not see
the passing clouds
above you and me.
They might await
to shout and sing
or begin raining
essence of spring.
Time illuminates
as a passing stage
formed as a style
of passage of age.
Skies transform
seasons of time
as they illuminate
all that we find.
So often as rain
on a cloudy day
and on the others
a sunny display.
Yet as the clouds
create and dance
they form a life’s
magical romance.
Seen as rhythms
that float and fly
creating art in an
illuminating sky.

The Winding Way

Roads we travel
can twist and turn
as the reflections
of all we discern.
They might hold
sweet memories
shadows of times
in many degrees.
Seeming to form
a pathway of style
as then within us
as a distant smile.
We often travel
to wishful places
within our minds
of hopeless cases.
Yet if we’ll seek
a blissful design
we might unleash
a prayerful time.
There may be pain
from day to day,
but good will come
the winding way.

Haiku
for Apr 16,  2022

Sensing some changes
so many might become fearful
of what that’s needed.

Lights shining brightly
can seem like the very best,
but be deceivers.

Daytime meets nighttime
as bad times meet the good times
in need of them both.

Time is a journey
that seconds and minutes form
creating chances.

Springtime to summer
life becomes as a window
showing us stages.

Waves of an ocean
can simulate a heartbeat
when crashing ashore.

The leaves of autumn
can create many paintings
without any paint.

Life as a dreamer
often turns into nightmares
if the dreams aren’t true.

Living in a shell
you might find you have no tools
that help you to grow.

Searching for answers
from ones that are ignorant
you’ll find more questions.

Turbulent rivers
might seem to speak many words
that can’t be explained.

Challenges in life
design and create pathways
for us to travel.

The needs of others
might not seem so great to you,
but you are not them.

Telling many lies
ones will soon not believe you
when you tell the truth.

Trivial moments
can become important times
if we pay no mind.

Life of a raindrop
does not end when it’s landed,
for it becomes more.

Threading a needle
needs some patience and perception
to make it complete.

Viewing clouds above
you might see reality
within illusions.

When in search of peace
you might need to imagine
and then kneel in prayer.

The seconds will pass
leaving an image of time
hidden in the days.

Morning awakens
bringing a new life to live
with yesterday gone.

A forest of trees
cannot always hide a mind,
for thoughts come to light.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s looking more and more like springtime
up here.  It’s 39 F degrees right now at 6:47
in the evening.  We’re expecting a little snow
this evening also,  but just a little and I am
sure that it will not stick,  being the ground
has had enough time to warm up a bit.  So
it looks as though springtime is finally here.
Yep,  the snow has all melted or at least all
of places that the sun shines upon.  There
are still a few spots where the sun doesn’t
shine that have patches of snow 🙂 There’s
not much going on up here.  We’re waiting
for the weather to warm up a little more so
we can do some field trips with Rocky and
also go and play Mini Golf.  The Houlton’s
Farm Dairy should open up in a week or so.
It might already be open,  but we have not
heard.  It seems Rocky is doing well after
the loss of his brother Benny.  A lot better
than Judy and I.  We still or least I still feel
and empty spot in our home.  We had him
for nearly 10 years.  Yep,  he was our first
boy/dog.  Anyways,  next topic.  Judy and
I have been enjoying our new arrangement
of TV programs not always having to record
them or watch them when they aired.  So,
we do not miss DISH TV LOL.  Yep and it
doesn’t cost near what DISH cost.  We had
to find something to lessen our expenses 🙂
and watching TV is something that we enjoy
doing.  It passes the time.  It’s not like we
have tons of things we are able to do that we
enjoy doing LOL.  I’d be a happy camper
if I could find someone up here that wants
to play some music,  but so far,  nobody
or at least they don’t want to jam with a
Texan.  I’m beginning to think that Mainers
don’t like me because I’m a Texan.  I have
always welcomed anyone from whatever
world they might come from.  I am still in
hopes of someone answering my Facebook
requests for anybody that lives in or near
New Limerick or Houlton Maine that wants
to jam,  to send me a message.  So what else
is going on around this place?  That’s a good
question.  Well I took a few pictures of the
spring thaw.  It won’t be long till I’m gonna
be mowing instead of snowblowing hehehe.
I reckon it’s time for me to move all of the
snow blowers to the back of the porch and
bring the lawnmower to the front so that
I can get to it when I need to mow the yard.
Yep,  we live a wild life LOL.  Easter is soon
upon us.  I wrote a new Easter poem a week
or so ago and made it into a poetry picture
using one of Judy’s paintings.  It came out
quite nice.   I haven’t done but a handful
of Easter poems.  Oh well,  who’s counting 🙂
It’s 37 F degrees at 8:24 PM and the forecast
if for 34 F degrees by morning.  It’s still a
little cool up this way,  but not too awful
bad.  Tomorrow night’s low is supposed
to be 28 F,  but with a high of 52 F LOL.
So go figure.  Heck,  there have been years
that we’ve still had tons of snow even into
May.  So nothing surprises me anymore.
God is still with us watching over us as we
encounter each new day.  We can still feel
the presence of many angels and kindly
spirits with us as well as the spirits of our
beloved boys/dogs that have passed as
they continue to watch over us.  Thank
You God for all that you’ve done and all
that You will surely do for us as well as
our loved ones and friends.  There is none
greater than You Lord.  Thank You for
never wavering and always giving Your
very best.  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 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 the place of
my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found a
fairly decent title near the middle of my
rambling.  Now to see if I can do anything
with it LOL.  Here goes…

Beginning

Minutes of time
begin and end
leaving us seconds
times to transcend.
Beginning seasons
and ending a few
time is a window
we’re look through.
Patterns lifestyles
form many finds
scenic as heartbeats
found in our minds.
Past meets present
and now meets then
creating pathways
the times enter in.
Blessings counted
we think are gone
that are beginning
yet another song.
Sung as a melody
a pageant of style
beginnings begin
and surely compile.
Times thought lost
yet they’re winning
lessons of the past
from the beginning.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope that you liked
the poem and maybe even a little of my
rambling 🙂  Judy’s behind me watching
a few videos on her laptop PC while she
waits for me to finish here,  so I think I
have told you all there is to tell 🙂 other
than of course what I tell you 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 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 surely
not before I wish you all a blessing filled
week and a happy Easter.  Now,  where
can that ornery lil off switch be trying to
hide this time LOL?  I don’t think it
put a lick of effort in hiding last week 🙂
LOL oh my word,  don’t fall and break
yourself.  How did you get way up there
on the curtain rod in front of me?????
I’ll try to reach up and get you ya silly.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Stormy Doors

Clouds might become
windows of the mind
seasons of reflections
as a moment’s design.
Forming the illusions
of a time in disrepair
doorways can open
and display a prayer.
Finding recognition
in phases of your life
stormy doors of time
might be full of strife.
But yet with a breath
a prayer can unleash
doorways to blessings
that are full of peace.
Let not the moments
of clouds that you see
to thrive within you
in a horrific degree.
Time gives us chances
to seek for new shores
using all the lessons
from the stormy doors.

Winterscape

Living as a moment
thriving as a dream
so many illusions
might fill up a scene.
Within imagination
holds keys to a stage
maybe a winterscape
of a childhood age.
Memories evolving
into a timeless sight
a winterscape dream
within snow of white.
A magical moment
that seems to appear
a reflection of time
of life’s yesteryear.
You might see clearly
yourself stood there
knee deep in snow
in a timeless flair.
It might seem like
an old video tape
showing reflections
of a winterscape.

Bluebonnets

Value of times
is that of a scene
as times and places
passion of spring.
Held so deeply
a magical place
life is a doorway
so many embrace.
Seen as windows
a moment unfolds
a seasonal scene
that time beholds.
Found as sights
in a purplish hue
seasons of scenes
a wonderful view.
The memories
of now and then
are of bluebonnets
timeless as wind.

Moon by Day

Time gives a glimpse
of a sky of style
as a moon by day
that gives us a smile.
It’s a wonderful sight
this big round ball
that shines so bright
when giving a call.
Seeming as a dream
it reflects the sun
this moon by day
that may have begun.
It raises the tides
of oceans and seas
this moon so bright
in many degrees.
Dreams are created
shining in the night
as it tells its tales
with reflected light.
This sight in the sky
is a magical way
so often in the night
and moon by day.

Changing Skies

Above and beyond
our vision might see
a scene so wondrous
that God gave free.
Changing formation
times might become
reflecting the past
with each rising sun.
Moments fluently
in a blue sky above
transition as artwork
filled full of love.
Changing the colors
as moments unfold
time is a painting
of young and of old.
It forms illusions
as birds day by day
creating emotions
in a magical way.
Seasons are dreams
seen with our eyes
found as a threshold
in changing skies.

Seasons of Dreams

Within many places
dreams might occur
giving a perception
of a him or a her.
Memories enlighten
times in the heart
seasons of emotions
scenes may impart.
Some as a blessing
and some as a pain
found as a memory
pouring like rain.
There may be times
you wish for to be
found as a portal
to happy and free.
Time may only show
a portion of scenes
that lives forever in
seasons of dreams.

Midst of Time

Sometimes scenery
might form a view
as an ocean of water
neath a sky of blue.
Dreaming of a sight
fishing in the waves
in the midst of time
of a heart’s arrays.
We might not know
how long it will be
in the midst of time
becoming history.
Life’s as doorways
with many a design
found as blessings
in the midst of time.

White of Nature

Life is a painting
always being made
seasons of scenes
as life’s lemonade.
Pictures forming
and creating styles
often as windows
filled full of smiles.
Some might see
but only the sights
that of moments
their heart delights.
Yet as a picture
of moments details
nature enhances
how a life prevails.
Times might find
a season to bestow
white of nature
in a winter’s snow.

Sights and Sounds

Evening breezes
become a view
a life of sounds
in a sea of blue.
Forming phrases
times that flow
sights and sounds
seeming to grow.
Scenes displayed
as time and place
created sights
a firm embrace.
Held in the grasp
of a scenic sun
time paints a way
to walk or run.
Becoming a door
to another realm
as time begins
taking the helm.
Love is an ocean
ripples of time
displaying scenes
hearts can find.
Creating a path
minds explore
reflected times
an ocean’s roar.
Search for peace
in many ways
sights and sounds
some better days.

Desirable

Now is a chance
a dream to find
as that of magic
a moment in time.
Desirable things
we want and wish
become an essence
a fisherman’s fish.
We might become
a river that flows
that of a moment
as a watery rose.
Creating ripples
a wondrous array
desirable scenes
of a distant day.
Scenes of pleasure
sights so sweet
become as a time
none can compete.
Hearts in unison
beat like a drum
life so desirable

Haiku
for Apr 9,  2022

Within a dreamworld
there may be many nightmares
awaiting for life.

Living on the edge
can create many problems
that cut you badly.

The leaves of autumn
can create many pictures
that seem so alive.

Trials that become us
can also create problems
that efforts can solve.

Living in a lie
cannot ever become peace,
for lies stoke hatred.

Journeys we travel
can often become alive
living in our minds.

Faintness of the truth
might show brightly many lies
that ones tried to hide.

Thoughts we may have
might not truly be our own
as we watch others.

The lines on one’s face
often tell many stories
that some misperceive.

Truth is a pattern
that needs to be set in place
or lies will live on.

The haves and have nots
are often with confusion
of what is needed.

A dreamers escape
can become a holy Hell
if the dream’s a lie.

Living as a breath
many breathe in existence
that of a fable.

Clinging to the edge
of a pathway that we cross
we might fall over.

Echoes of silence
can be heard within our minds
as our memories.

Hearts that are with flame
and stoke up an awesome blaze
if they are faithful.

Lost in a snowstorm
you might lose your direction
within the snowflakes.

So many challenges
are unnecessary words
in the heat of time.

Patience is gathered
when impatience has run out
saying you must wait.

Many say they love,
but do not know the meaning
and so they might like.

Change is a structure
that enhances daily stride
either good or bad.

Gathering your strength
for a journey you don’t know
can become useless.

The River Below

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you enjoyed March.  April is upon
us now with hopefully some better days to
be transpired.  Judy and I are doing well.
We’ve been watching the snow melt away
into many puddles and pools.  LOL we’ve
got a pond again at the front of our house.
Yep,  it’s warming up slowly but surely as
springtime awakens.  Although it’s not
unheard of us to get another lashing from
Mr Winter before breathing its very last
breath until next October or November 🙂
We’ve been doing pretty much our same
old same old each day.  Yep,  we’re pretty
much into repetition.  It’s not like we’ve
got many choices of what to do up here.
I have no friends or immediate family up
here that I can visit.  Judy spends a few
days a month with her family.  So my life
consists of taking pictures and writing my
poetry and creating poetry pictures.  Judy
and do watch a lot of TV being we have
a lot of favorite programs that we love to
watch.  I’m thankful for all of those times.
Our boy Rocky is doing well.  He’s ornery
as ever always wanting a treat.  If we gave
him a treat every time he wanted one,  we
would have to roll him around the house.
He’s fat enough as it is LOL.  Yes I know,
I’m one to talk about being fat hehehehe.
I can starve myself and still not lose any
weight due to all of the steroids that were
pumped in me and Prednisone that were
prescribed to me when I had Ulcerative
Colitis and Crohn’s back in 1994-1995.
Too bad they didn’t have knowledge of
the diseases then that they have now.  Oh
well,  life goes on.  LOL next topic.  Well,
I did get a few pictures this passed week
of the melting snow.  Judy even stopped
at the river in town so I could take a few
pictures of the walking bridge and a few
while on it of the river below it.  Yep,  the
water is flowing briskly.  We went to the
electric company and paid our bill and
then stopped off at DOC’s and put some
money on our heating oil tab.  I’m hoping
that our heating oil will hold out till the
prices go down because it cost a fortune
now.  I though think that our heating oil
will last us as long as the temperatures
continue rising.  LOL I though wish for
the temps to stop at maybe 75 thereabouts
being I am hot natured and can’t handle
temperatures near or above 80 F.  We do
have a portable air conditioner that we
have set up in here/the computer room
and that is the only way that I survive
the hotter days of summer.  We are both
excitedly waiting for the miniature golf
course to open,  but that might not be
too soon as I am sure they are waiting
for the weather to get right.  Judy and
I love playing mini golf.  Neither of us
is any good at it,  but we love to play it.
We also love to stop at Houlton Farms
Dairy and get us some ice cream every
year.  Of course it won’t open until the
weather gets a little warmer, although
it should open sometime this month 🙂
My fave is a ShakeaSundae,  but I will
sometimes get a plain hot fudge sundae
without nuts.  I wish every day that there
was someone near us that wanted to jam
with me.  Playing the congas by myself
is boring.  I have posted to Facebook
and hoping someone replies and wants
to jam.  It would make living up here
a little better to have someone else to
do things with even if it’s only once or
twice a month.  Anyways,  other than
that,  life is pretty good.  I love the time
that I have with Judy and a little of the
time I am with Rocky hehehe.  He can
be quite ornery ya know LOL.  I hope
that we are able to one day go to Texas
and visit my family and friends,  but it
will not happen until we can afford it
as well as physically capable.  Whatever
happens,  will be what is meant to be.
God is still watching over us as are the
many angels He has sent us and the
kindly spirits that give us a hand time
to time when needed.  I feel blessed
to have Judy in my life.  She’s is my
very best friend as well as soul mate.
We have our bad moments,  but we
never lose the love and know that we
will have moments being we are both
retired and around each other 24-7 🙂
Thank You God for blessing us with
each other and giving us the strength
to do what we need to do.  AMEN..
Now I do believe it’s time for me to
be reading back on all that I have
written here to see if I can find me a
good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s 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 found a decent title right near
the halfway mark of my rambling and
now after checking,  I see that it hasn’t
been used,  so used it shall be today.
Here goes…

The River Below

Within perception
times might feel
as a total direction
hard times reveal.
That of the waters
that surely unveil
seasons of seconds
seeming like Hell.
Yet as a blessing
times might reveal
waters of prayerful
on our windowsill.
Look for the paths
within every way
and don’t forget
to kneel and pray.
For as a journey
becomes as a flow
God is with angels
in the river below.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even a bit of my rambling 🙂
I haven’t much else to tell you other than
what I tell you nearly every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers,  10 more poems but 1 of them is
a little Christmassy.  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.  With that said,  I reckon it’s
time for me to be searching for that hardly
elusive off switch,  but surely not before I
wish you all a truly blessings filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now,  where can that ornery off switch be
trying to hide this time????  Oh,  for the
love of God,  can’t you find a better place
to hide than one that is dangling right in
front of me LOL?  Hanging onto the lid
of my lens cleaner box just dangling like
a really bad mountain climber hehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Morning’s Glow

Shimmering sunshine
comes into phase
creating shadows
of timeless arrays.
Silhouettes forming
a stage on a beach
shimmering sunshine
still far out of reach.
It forms a window
a doorway of time
within the moments
found in the mind.
It might be imagined
or just but a dream
a moment recorded
as a magical scene.
Shimmering sunshine
creates a great show
as the day awakens
with morning’s glow.

Time in Flight

Above and beyond
our eyes might look
with time in flight
as an open book.
Just like a breath
of a scenic display
just like a bird
we might fly away.
Finding a moment
as a breath of air
might need Jesus
with a little prayer.
We might not see
clearly the sights
each time in flight
the days and nights.
You might become
as a mere memory
in someone’s eyes
that they can see.
For many recall
but only a phase
a time in flight
of passing days.
So just move on
and do what’s right
the best you can
with time in flight.

Bridging Tomorrow

Foot paths we cross
on bridges of time
often have moments
for our eyes to find.
Sometimes illusions
and often surreal
upon the tomorrows
the bridges reveal.
They might become
as artwork of life
painting reflections
of joyful and strife.
Yesterdays journeys
remembered so well
might be the lessons
tomorrows entail.
Leaves in our minds
as an autumn sight
might be reflections
of yesterdays night.
Open up your eyes
find in the sorrow
yesterdays lessons
bridging tomorrow.

Tracks To Spring

Seen as a railway
time can become
minutes emotions
as said and done.
Tracks to a vision
might surely show
seasons becoming
essence of snow.
Yet in the distance
time might weave
sights and sounds
a moment of ease.
You may even see
a shadow or two
as your reflection
of old and anew.
We are as seasons
changing each day
often comparing
what’s gone away.
Find the blessings
in now and again
as they become as
a seasonal wind.
Seasons awaken
with many a scene
beginning winter
tracks to spring.

Shining Through

Thoughts of life
might have a view
that is but only
one living in you.
You might find
a smiling face
within sunshine
that you embrace.
Across an ocean
might be a sight
shining through
like day and night.
The same for life
in people we see
the times we find
within history.
Blessed emotions
become the gaze
while looking on
to the future days.
Just like the sky
so many we view
await to begin
shining through.

Admiration

I find I’m often
looking all about
admiring times
in ways and out.
Scenic reflections
in my memories
now are but only
oceans and seas.
Adding flavors
aromas so divine
my admiration
is that of a time.
A magical place
many years ago
that now lives on
in photos aglow.
Pictures we took
as time went by
live on in scenes
to never run dry.
We each may see
a place in time
that lives forever
within our mind.
Moments we miss
wished to appear
as life passed by
of a yesteryear.
It may be a time
of gratification
a person or place
of admiration.

Easter Memories

We as children
may surely recall
a special moment
that stood so tall.
Making Easter eggs
coloring them too
as we so young
sought their view.
The Easter bunny
was just a tale,
but many believed
in stories ones tell.
Yet it was a time
of Heavenly things
as Jesus returned
so truly supreme.
But the day lives
as many may view
of childhood days
so fresh and anew.
A new day begun
that I do believe
is found within
Easter memories.

Storms of Desire

We might see clouds
of a distant array
bestowing illusions
of a stormy day.
Moments fixations
form in our minds
often with illusions
of horrific times.
What we are seeing
might only be
waves of a moment
a worrisome sea.
Look up to Heaven
and say a prayer
and find strength
in a breath of air.
So many storms
that we have seen
display nightmares
but only a dream.
Seasons memories
that we remember
may seem as storms
of a burning ember.
Wants and wishes
can create flames
when not needed
a moment attains.
Yet they may only
be just a fire
burning within you
storms of desire.

Winter Unfolds

Driving memories
life comes around
things remembered
of sight and sound.
The days unfolding
might have a place
a road to winter
with a smiling face.
It might be a time
from so long ago
a cold winter drive
in scenes of snow.
You might recall
an essence and style
that of a moment
a Christmassy mile.
It might be a time
of childhood days
a wintertime drive
with magical ways.
A Christmas of past
on some old roads
that showed a scene
how winter unfolds.

Sea of Thought

Passing scenes
sights of styles
might become
wanted whiles.
Living stages
ages of time
sea of thought
we might find.
Enhanced life
crashing waves
are so often
wanted arrays.
Bringing to life
our memories
as passing ages
peaceful seas.
For the views
recalled so well
might now be
a timeless tale.
Echoes of time
you loved a lot
might live in a
sea of thought.

Haiku
for Apr 2,  2022

Threads of existence
are as stories that we read
added to each day.

A passing moment
might be tomorrow’s regret
held within our mind.

Shadows of life
can often become alive
and live in others.

The tools that we use
might not be the proper ones,
but they might succeed.

Feasting on ones
that have made many errors
can come back on you.

Weeding out problems
you might find that you are one
that’s needing weeded.

Thriving as heartbeats
so many are blinded by wants
not seeing the truth.

Tomorrow’s sunshine
can become the reflections
of yesterday’s clouds.

The tires of a car
can become flat within time
the same as our lives.

Thoughts that we’re thinking
can often become nightmares
filled with illusion.

Many illusions
come from unbridled wantings
without commonsense.

We are as ripples
in an ocean of water
seeking to be found.

The answers we find
might not be the correct ones
and leave us in pain.

The windows of time
can become clouded by storms
and leave us insane.

Glancing at the clouds
you might see some memories
that live in your mind.

Life in a bubble
can prevent any lessons
learned from living life.

Scenic passageways
will often cause us to crash
while looking around.

Many trials in life
are filled with sadness and pain,
but they are needed.

History repeats
and sometimes it’s a good thing,
but often it’s not.

Values of many
are often found in their minds
and how they’re brought up.

Avoiding issues
you might become very weak
following a fool.

Chances that we take
can sometimes create problems,
but lessons are learned.
