Little Paws


Hello my friends

How have you been? Judy and I have been
doing fairly well. We had a nice day Friday
on our 14 year wedding anniversary. All we
did was went to Burger King and bought us
some burgers LOL. We’re having to sort of
conserve on money being I’m going to have
to put 400 dollars on heating oil. I’ve gotta
start now putting money on our oil so that
we will have enough heating oil to last us for
a while. Winter is knocking loudly on our
front door hehehe. This morning it was a
tad cold at 30 F degrees. I think we have
seen the last of warm weather this year :)
We might still have a day or so that slips
into the 70’s, but it’s not in the forecasts.
5-Day Forecast for New Limerick, Maine

Today: Partly Cloudy, High: 60 F, Low: 35 F

Mon: Partly Cloudy, High: 63 F, Low: 38 F

Tues: Sunny, High: 64 F, Low: 40 F

Wed: Mostly Sunny, High: 64 F, Low: 37 F

Thurs.: Sunny, High: 54 F, Low: 34 F

So that’s about all we will see for the next few
days until it starts getting colder which will most
assuredly happen as the weeks move along LOL.
Yep, even the leaves on the trees have begun
to change, but they still have a few days before
reaching their peak in changing. Judy and I are
preparing for our yearly drive to see if we can
find some nice colors to take pictures of. I hope
we find some great ones. Anyways, that’s our
future plans. Last Sunday night we managed
to get some good pictures of the super moon
and the eclipse/blood moon. The pictures are
not the greatest, but they are pretty good :).
We’ve posted a few on Facebook. I’ll put a
few in my stationery. We took the boys out
for another field trip early last week and they
have grown to love to do that. They’ve been
doing a lot of wrestling around in here. They
will roll around in the floor and play for hours.
If we open the door to let them out to run in
the house they’ll play chase back and forth
until they both drop in their tracks hehehe.
Yep, they act just like brothers. You might
look and think they are fighting, but they
are only playing. They’ll stop from time to
time to catch their breath and get a drink
of water and then they’ll be at it again LOL.
If Benny is resting and Rocky still wants to
play, Rocky will commence talking to him
in his little voice as we call it that sounds
sort of like Betty Davis LOL. Rocky is
slowly but surely grasping the concept of
going potty outside as he has begun his
own way of saying he’s gotta go potty
by either going to the door and staring
at it and then looking back at us or at
times when we are still asleep jumping
up and licking Judy on the face to tell
her hehehe being she’s on that side of
the bed LOL. I guess if he can’t get her
to wake up he’ll end up on my side of
the bed :) He has also begun barking
at the front door when he is done and
ready to come in, almost the same way
Milo used to do :) I wonder how he’s
gonna like snow? Hmm, Milo didn’t
care for it too much, but at times he
would go exploring in it. We shall see.
We got a bit of rain beginning late in
the night Monday which prevented us
from taking the boys out for another
field trip that week, but we’ll take
them out a few days this week as we
have planned. There’s no rain in the
forecast. The boys were doing their
wrestling a little while ago, but now
they are resting. I’m sure that they’ll
resume again with the wrestling match
later hehehe. Rocky will often just let
Benny win, but we both know that
Rocky can kick his butt if he wants
to LOL. We love to watch them play.
It makes our hearts sing. This house
would seem empty without the sound
of little paws running and playing :)
Judy’s daughter Helena finally got
a new car. Ok it’s not totally new,
but it’s newer than ours. Her old car
was falling apart. The doors were
barely hanging on and the windshield
wipers fell off and she put them in
the trunk, so yes, she needed a new
car. She bought a 2010 Mazda 6 :)
I’m sure it will keep her on the road
for many years. I bought my Mazda
Protege in 1995 and it lasted us till
last year when we took a trip down
south to Texas in it and then it lost
a cylinder in Massachusetts and had
to drive the rest of the way to Texas
on 3 cylinders LOL. Through the
Appalachian Mountains yet hehehe.
We made it in one piece, old red
not so much LOL. Anyways, my
mom gave us her 2009 Nissan Rogue
and bought her a new one after her
saying there’s no way yall are going
to drive that Mazda back to Maine.
I miss my little red Mazda. It was
a part of my life for 19 years, but
it had done all that it could do and
it was time to let it go. We love
the Nissan. We started calling it
the Phantom, being phantom white
is the color of it :) The boys love
to go for rides in it just as Benny
and Milo loved to go for rides in
old red. I stopped writing just a bit
ago and drove down to Cameron’s
Market which is just a little ways
down the road from us and yes I
took the boys. Judy and I wanted
some chips to eat. I almost shut the
door on Rocky not knowing that
he was headed out the door with
me hehehe. So I stuck my head
inside and said, who wants to go
with me, and Benny hopped off of
the recliner and joined Rocky as
they ran down the steps to the car.
I opened the back door and they
hopped right in. Gotta love them
boys :) Anyways, during the rains
of last week we put the boys rain
gear on to help to keep then sort
of dry when they went out to go
potty hehehe. Their heads and
tails still got drenched LOL. Oh
well, we did our best. When they
came inside I towel dried them
which concurred to a little tug of
war between me and them. Both
of them tugging, but it seemed
they were having not only a tug
of war with me, but they were
having a tug of war with each
other LOL. That went on for a
while and Judy took pictures of it.
The towel was in a v formation as
I had the middle and they had a
hold of two corners LOL. God
has most surely blessed our home
as we have found another boy for
Benny that has turned out to be
a blessing. Thank You Lord for
all that you have done and shall
do in our lives. We might ever so
often take things for granted, but
we always remember Your Name
and how You have brought us all
together. If you have not allowed
God into your life yet, why not do
it today. You will still have many
struggles, but you will have God
to give you strength to make it
as He sends blessings your way.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be
taking my little trip back through
all that I have 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 seem to always like to call
found a good title just a little ways
back. Now let’s see what I can do
with it hehehe. Here goes………

Little Paws

Tiny footprints
in the sand
run around
like hand in hand.
Little paws
without a grasp,
still grab hold
to do the task.
Both are brothers
different breeds
joined together
with their needs.
Loving brothers
their hurrahs
bounce around with
little paws.
Often playing
grasses green
then they might be
sights unseen.
In the bedroom
on our bed
bouncing around
the pillow head.
Pillows flying
to the floor
little paws then
play some more.

Hehehe there ya go. That’s all I could
think of using that title hehehe. So, it
might not be one of my better poems. It
was what that got written. I hope you
enjoyed my rambling. If not, Oh well,
maybe next week! My friend Brian still
needs your prayers. He and his family
are going through some rough times
as he bouts with cancer in his brain
and elsewhere. I have lost so many
friends to that nasty disease. But, I
do know that there is a place waiting
for us each one when our time is up
within these fleshly bodies and that
is Heaven or Hell as the case might
be. It’s all up to us and our choices,
so choose wisely my friends. Hell is
an unending place of torment that
provides no peace. I happily await
my time for Heaven bound being
I know that I will see all those that
have gone on before me and those
that will be joining when their time
comes. My wife and our little boys
will be together again joined with
many others. LOL, OK Bill cease
the preaching. Better yet, stop now
before I get locked into rambles ville
once again. So, I guess it’s time for
me to be telling you what I tell you
almost every week and that is, I
wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep, 10 more poems with one of em
being sort of Christmassy and one
being to Judy. 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’s time for me to begin my
search for that not so elusive off
switch, but not before I wish you all
a most joyous weekend or whatever
is left of it and a blessings filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Ok, now where are you ya
little varmint? Last week and all the
previous weeks you’ve not seemed
to even try to hide. Hmm, looking
and searching as serious as a one
eyed dude can search hehehehehe.
Aha, I see ya. You did a little bit
better than normal, but still, it’s
not that great. Hiding behind my
glasses case would of worked if you
could possibly try and fight the urge
to poke your switch up to peek at
me LOL. You are so freaken silly :)
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe :)

Belief In True Love

Two hearts in an ocean
of true loves desire
found a sea vessel
with time to aspire.
The depth of the heartbeats
was found on display
as belief in true love
guided their way.
Two then in the waves
were sailing through time
hearts found concurring
in a wondrous design.
Belief in true love
was ripples in space
two found together
found face to face.
Two hearts in an ocean
found life the same
belief in true love
with the same name.
Joined with God’s blessings
the two became one
belief in true love
through Jesus God’s Son.
Then as their passageways
then gathered speed
belief in true love
gave all that they need.

Shadows Of Joy

Seasonal moments
of so long ago
are now as shadows
with that Christmas glow.
Me as a young boy
with seasonal sun
singing of Christmas
and Jesus God’s Son.
Some songs of Santa
are sung day and night
joyful so joyful
a Christmas delight.
Wishing for such things
as white Christmas snow
and to hear sounds of Santa
with his HoHoHo
Dreaming of blessings
my favorite toy.
These are the things
that are shadows of joy.

Searching through the stars
a lonely soul flies
a voyager, a dreamer
in so distant skies.
The voyager might be
just searching in dreams
bouncing through the stars
that look just like streams.
A river is flowing
inside of their mind.
The voyager is seeking
a new life to find.
Searching through the stars
in a sequential pattern
sometimes real close
to the large rings of Saturn.
The voyager of nighttime
dreams of the stars
sometimes of Venus
and sometimes of Mars.
Then when awoken
in the darkness of night
the voyager looks up
and sees the starlight.
The cosmos partaken
that dreams had brought clear
the voyager saw as
their future year.

A Moments Swan

Upon the ripples
of a wondrous pond
there just might be
a moments swan.
A picturesque scene
from dusk to dawn
the ripples display
a moments swan.
Pages are inlaid
as ripples so long
painted as Heaven
a moments swan.
The journey across
might be to spawn
within a season
a moments swan.
What’s seen and heard
is then soon gone
for it is done
a moments swan.

Restful Soul

Peace is found
when in forgiveness
done before
the time to rest.
A restful soul
of now and then
is found amidst
the less of sin.
Yet a sinful
life occurs
with each life
each day concurs.
A restful soul
finds through some prayer
love of life
without despair.
The seasons found
might take their toll,
but prayer can find
a restful soul.

A Candle In The Room

The lights might cease
with rain and wind blowing
and a candle in the room
show where you’re going.
A storm that’s displaying
scenes of such sights,
a candle in the room
provides us with lights.
For in the darkness
eyes have some trouble
finding a pathway
through all the rubble.
A candle in the room
prevents many scenes
like falling over stuff
and breaking many things.
The candle is the light
to display what’s true
like God and His Son
through things that you do.

A Rising Tide

The moon at night
brings forth a plan
a rising tide
to where we stand.
The moments gained
with certain sights
as the waves are
in the nights.
The moon above
gives oceans rise
seeming as a
different size.
A rising tide
can seem to be
much more there
for eyes to see.
Yet the moonlight
closer found
brings the tide
much more aground.

Reflecting Time

Some in sections
might just be
a minute ticking
that we see.
Times reflections
might become
a sight to see,
a beating drum.
Reflecting time
in its own way
might be lessons
day to day.
Some are speed bumps
some are walls
times reflections
trips and falls.
Reflecting time
is better seen
stop on red
and go on green.
Learning patterns
which to find
found within
reflecting time.

Mist Of Dawn

When morning comes
and night moves on
there is the sight of
mist of dawn.
Dew drops dripping
from the plants
answers from their
nighttime chants.
The mist might seem
to be as rain,
but without
a clouds domain.
The mist of dawn
is great to see,
for it is
a gift for free.
A gift from God
to help display
a flowers bloom
April and May.

The Mood Of Now

Within a second
moods might change
to a moment
seemed so strange.
The mood of now
might not be then,
for the path
might just transcend.
When in a moment
we might mistaken
what that’s good
to be partaken.
The mood of now
can surely be
the guiding path
to what you see.
Use the lessons
then has shown
the mood of now
that were so blown.
The mood of now
can change its face
as time moves on,
a different place.

for Oct 3, 2015

Tomorrow’s journey
begins with steps made today,
so start your walking.

Life in a story
can be discerned many ways,
but the truth exist.

Summertime’s doorway
soon finds itself with an end
as Autumn begins.

The displays of love
will get misinterpreted
by ones they don’t know.

Bonding two heartbeats
needs God to be the true glue
to hold them intact.

Living on the edge
could cause you your destruction,
because you might fall.

Making tracks in snow
often loses its details
due to snow falling.

Echoes of summer
often come as memories
held deep within us.

Often perception
is confused by a moment
and how it happened.

Losing your marbles
over things that are long gone
will not give you peace.

Change is a story
that’s written as life goes on,
pages begun blank.

Flavors of ice cream
are for our differences
the same as we are.

Beyond the starlight
holds an imagination
that might just be true.

Morning with sunlight
is a door to the future
beginning right then.

Various people
discern things in their minds eye
that are just made up.

Frolicking with life
can turn around and bite you
if you’re not careful.

Beneath starry skies
holds a place for dreams to thrive
as you fall asleep.

Not teaching the truth
can one day become problems
that you might regret.

In a field of dreams
there is a chance for changes
that can come alive.

Yearning for what’s wrong
and following that feeling
might cause destruction.

A small country road
might seem to lead to nowhere,
but that is somewhere.

Deciphering meanings
often ends with confusion,
for the words are wrong.

Connected By Love


Hello my friends

It’s been getting cooler with every passing
day where we live. Yep, it’s looking like
summer has moved on. We brought Judy’s
flowers inside to keep them from freezing.
This evening Judy and I are going to take
our cameras with tripods outside to try to
get some good pictures of the moon. Yep,
it’s supposed to be spectacular. Beginning
at 6 PM the moon will be seen growing in
the sky to become a super moon and then
at 10 PM become a complete solar eclipse
and blood moon. We can’t wait, but wait
we must being we have no control over it.
Hopefully we’ll get some great photos of it.
Until then, we will just have to wait LOL.
Ok, next topic. Benny and Rocky have
been having fun as we took them out for
a field trip 4 days last week. They played
chase and wrestled in the grass and I got
a few great videos of them doing that and
both Judy and I got some great photos of
them. They also play chase in the house
running from one end of the house to the
other and then stop from time to time to
wrestle. Rocky will often let Benny win,
but we both know that Rocky can whip
Benny’s butt hehehe. We’re still having
a few problems with Rocky making potty
in the house, but it’s getting less and less
each day. From what I have learned, it
seems that Shih-tzu’s are the hardest to
train being that they’re one of the most
stubborn breeds of dogs. Potty training
is best done when they are just a month
or so old or younger. So getting anything
in his little tiny brain is gonna take time,
but I’m sure he will one day wise up LOL.
In the mean time, we keep an eye on him
as best that we can and keep paper towels
and pet stain and odor sprays handy at
all times hehehe. We love our little boys.
They’re like our children in a big way.
We haven’t heard anything from Judy’s
brother Ricky, but assuming he is OK.
Judy is going up to see him Wednesday,
being he has a doctors appointment in
Presque Isle that day. I reckon me and
the boys will hold down the fort and we
might even take a field trip while she’s
gone. Time will tell. I’m sure we will
find something to do :) Mine and Judy’s
14th wedding anniversary is this coming
Friday Oct 2, 2015. Can you believe
she’s put up with me for 14 years LOL?
Yea, I know, hard to believe, but she
has hehehe :) We’ve had our share of
bad days, but have had an abundance
of wonderful days. We’ve found that
we like many of the same things. Of
course nobody likes everything as the
same, for we all have our differences.
It’s learning to accept the differences
as what God made them to be. Though
many will make choices and try to put
them off as the way they are instead of
owning up to their bad choices. I have
made many bad choices and I have had
to pay the price for them, but today I
try to choose better my future and let
the past remain in the past as best that
I can. Of course even that at times is
a trial and a half LOL. That darned old
memory tends to tamper with what that
needs to be left alone. Judy and I have
found many blessed events to come into
our lives in forms of many things such
as wonderful photos that we’ve taken
that help us remember fantastic places
as well as awaking to the snow falling
down in the dawn of morning. It has
a magical feel to it, or at least it does
to us. Summer sunrises and sunsets
bring the warmth of God alive in our
hearts. Watching our little dogs play
and bounce around the house puts a
smile on our faces. There is so much
that we are thankful for that there is
no way I could possibly write it all
down in a few words. I’m still hoping
that my daughter and granddaughter
along with her boyfriend and his son
can make it up for Christmas. I told
Brian that they will need to bring up
some warm clothing. Not just Texas
jackets hehehe. Also to be prepared
to drive in the snow. It’s pretty much
a guaranty that there will be snow :)
It hasn’t missed a year yet at least
not in the almost 8 years that we’ve
lived up here LOL. Hopefully nothing
prevents them from coming. Right
now at 4:48 PM it’s 69 F degrees and
clear, so it should make for a great
viewing of the super moon. I might
wait to send this until we have gone
to take pictures of it, but maybe not.
If not, I will put a few of the pictures
in next weeks journal if in fact any of
the pictures come out good enough
to share :) Judy and I both have a
tripod so both of us will be taking
pictures. I’m pretty sure that Benny
and Rocky will be outside with us
curious to what we’re looking at :)
My grandmother had a great 108th
birthday last Sunday. She has been
a wonderful grandmother and friend.
We’re connected by love. She knows
I love her and I know she loves me.
I will never forget all of the special
times we had together. Her and my
Pawpaw were like 2nd parents to me.
I miss all those days of long ago, but
they are alive inside my mind. I’m
sure that we will all meet again in
Heaven when that time comes to
be. For me, I’ll continue to do my
best to share the laughter and smiles
with others that my Pawpaw shared
with me. My grandmother always
had something good to eat and she
would often sit in the floor with me
and my cousin Melody as we would
play board games by the fireplace.
Judy and I are daily creating many
memories to share with our grand kids.
Our kids have all grown up and are
now with lives of their own, but we
hope that we are showing them that
love isn’t about money. It’s about
doing your best to move foreword
not letting bad times of yesterday
to ruin your future. Today’s a new
day and time for forgiveness for
the past, so to find true happiness.
Yes it is hard, but with God, all
things are possible. I’ve screwed
up many times in my past with my
decisions being I was young and
dumb, but I am trying my best to
move forward and not let the past
to destroy my future by reliving it
always. Let God help you to find
that place of forgiveness and not
just forgiving others, but that of
yourself. Now I believe it’s time
for me to begin my search through
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 like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I found a decent
title just a little ways back in my
rambling. I hope I can write a few
words that make sense. Here goes.

Connected By Love

When life finds an ending
there’s time to begin
life through a heartbeat
that souls enter in.
Connected by love
with distance not found
ones are united
on God’s higher ground.
Peace is then feathered
and flying with grace
connected by love
to that Heavenly place.
Then everyone that’s
gone before you
will be there just smiling
with life found anew.
Connected by love
so many will find
life at the ending
with new peace of mind.
Heaven’s great valley
will open up wide
connected by love
as we go inside.
Then as the pathways
of others unite
connected by love
will then see the light.

Ok, there ya go. Yea, I know, not that
great hehehe. Oh well, it’ll have to do :)
It’s 5:30 PM and still 69 F degrees. That
was supposed to be the high for today and
I guess it held its mark LOL. I now have
Benny sleeping in the floor right beside me.
Rocky is sleeping behind Judy hehehehe.
I guess they wore each other out playing.
Their second wind should come in a little
while LOL. Judy is over there writing on
her Sci-fi novel. I’ve gotten a little behind
on editing it. I guess I need to try and get
caught up, but my right eye gets tired fast.
My left eye is useless due to a stroke, so
my right eye has to do all the work hehehe.
Oh well, I’ll get it done. I have a prayer
request for my good friend Brian Palmer.
He has cancer and they are doing all that
they can to get it, but prayers can most
surely do wonders. Now, I guess I need to
tell you what I tell you almost every week
and that is, I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yep, 10 more poems with 2 of them
being sort of Christmassy :) Also I wrote
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there. ENJOY :) So, have I forgotten
anything? Hmm, I can’t think of anything,
so I guess it’s time to start searching for
that not too elusive off switch, but not
before I wish you a wonderful weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a blessings
filled week. Remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. Now, where are
ya hiding, ya little switch like varmint?
I see you. Attempting to hide behind
my mom and dad’s picture might have
worked if you hadn’t been peeking out
from behind it hehehe. Ya silly thing.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe :)

Yesterdays Blessings

Things gone unnoticed
as time ticks away
might be the moments
we notice today.
Yesterdays blessings
and answers to prayer
might be the minutes
we thought as unfair.
For many blessings
are often just seen
that of a nightmare
not as a dream.
Yesterdays blessings
will come when it’s best
as God reveals them
those times oh so blessed.
Yet our own viewpoints
might not see so clear
the best of yesterdays
blessings sincere.
Time has a way of
displaying the reasons
often much later
found in the seasons.
Yesterdays blessings
just might coincide
within our future
on a prayer driven ride.
So don’t let your heart to
fill up with sorrow,
because you might find
a better tomorrow.

The stage is set

sometimes with
a famous name.
A super moon,

A Prayerful Time

Those simple days
that now have passed
a prayerful time
is shadows casts.
Times remembered

a prayerful time
was great to view.
Childhood ways
with innocent eyes

is how time flies.
Moments of bliss
from frames of God
now have displayed
times applaud.
All grown up
from each land mine
lessons were learned
a prayerful time.

Heaven’s White Snowflakes

Snowflakes found falling
find places to land
creating viewpoints
of Heaven so grand.
Heavenly portions
float from the skies
landing in places
where much more applies.
Building a picture
for many to see
Heaven’s white snowflakes
are seen fabulously.
A dreamers dream
so fluffy to float
Heaven’s white snowflakes
are as a love note.
Heavenly blessings
with wintertime’s style
Heaven’s white snowflakes
will create a smile.

Thinking of Christmas
a child will explore
sweet thoughts of presents
when in a toy store.
Walking passed windows
with displays so nice
seen in a child’s eyes
are nary the price.
For they see Santa
at nighttime so deep
bringing them toys
when they’re fast asleep.
A child is believing
and not filled with doubt
for they perceive magic
what Santa’s about.
A child’s eyes sees hopeful
where we are so blind
so sometimes it’s best to
seek a child’s frame of mind.
Not letting doubtful
to just bring you down
a child’s eyes can help you
to remove that frown.
Find the Christmas joy
that you had one day
and let it to live on
in a magical way.

Invisible Flowers

Fragrant aromas
that you cannot see
display as flavors
to a small bumble bee.
Invisible flowers
that are not exposed
hidden by moments
that eyesight is closed.
Times in the darkness
their true smell empowers
seeming just like
invisible flowers.
Often in the daylight
their aroma might come
greatest with blossoms
up under the sun.
Yet many times though
the moment might be
invisible flowers
that you cannot see.

Creating Smiles

We can create them
with just but a gaze
as ones will see us
with curved up displays.
Smiles maybe forced,
but might turn out true
when in reflections
you see smile at you.
A mirror reflects back
but has no perception
of what that’s false
a smile of deception.
So creating smiles
can be done when at home
looking in the mirror
when you’re all alone.
Then as you head out,
that smile you display
just might become true
in a wonderful way.
And when people see it
they might find their styles
learning their own way of
creating smiles.

Disasters Recipe

Allowing passed days
of turmoil and pain
to live forever
in all you attain
is disasters recipe
with time to explode
carrying baggage
on down the road.
Yesterday is gone
so don’t hold so tight
to things you have done
that did not go right.
Learn from disasters
to not repeat them,
make them as lessons
to help you to swim.
An ocean of time
can make you a fool
if you let passed days
into today’s pool.
Remember the good times
and learn from the bad
and don’t let disasters
to be all you’ve had.
For now is a journey
to help you to see
lessons to learn
from disasters recipe.

The Gift Of Life

God with His greatness
created you and I
to share and be thankful
until the day we die.
But so many people
live only with hate
and the gift of life
is not in their trait.
God gave us wonders
as a sky up above,
a fantastic painting
that’s filled full of love.
He gave us the flowers
and trees oh so tall
with leaves of green
that change in the fall.
There’s so many things
that we fill full of strife
which really should display
the gift of life.

Wonderful Secrets

Looking through visions
of timeless recalls
wonderful secrets
are like bouncing balls.
Taking on lifestyles
of their own display
wonderful secrets
are found day to day.
Many with children
seeking delight
of Santa’s sleigh bells
heard in the night.
Wonderful secrets
of sugarplum fairies
bringing them dreams
of Christmas so merry.
Christmas Eve comes
with them counting sheep,
Santa Claus comes
when they’re fast asleep.

for Sept 25, 2015

Mornings of sorrow
can be changed into a smile
if you so desire.

Left handed people
in a right handed cosmos
can change perception.

The signs found on walls
that have anger upon them
might just be old news.

Counting stars at night
brings sleep into your eyesight
as many are there.

Beyond what we see
could be a different view
that we know not of.

Perceiving a smell,
might send you the wrong idea
if near sulfur plants.

Written deception
that’s found in a newspaper
can create scandals.

Belonging to now
allows yesterday to rest,
for it has moved on.

Making up stories
about someone you don’t like
will come back to haunt.

Lost in a whirlwind
our minds might one day become,
due to lack of sleep.

When choosing a friend
look passed what your eyes can see
and look deep within.

Find time to relax
when you have done all you can
and then try again.

Selecting moments
needs knowledge of the moments
before selecting.

Dividing people
due to racial perception
shows how dumb ones are.

Religion argued
is not making God happy,
for we’re His children.

The worriers face
holds lines that display patterns
as their recordings.

Flowers of summer
will soon wither and pass on
if not taken in.

Stuck with a shadow
that yesterday put on you
needs you to change it.

Too tight the minutes
gives no room for any growth,
for growth needs time.

Our childhood ventures
can still live on in our minds
when we are adults.

Jumbled emotions
can come from too much hurry
and no time to think.

The sunrise canvass
is painted with God’s fingers
and Heavenly paint.

A Little Birthday Poem


Hello my friends

I hope you have been doing fairly well. We’ve
been doing pretty good. The weather is getting
cooler with each passing day. Today’s high is
supposed to be 64 F degrees and right now it’s
64 F at 3:30 PM. Tonight’s low is supposed to
be 39 F or around that. We’ve taken the boys
out for more field trips in front of our house and
Rocky is loving it. Benny has always loved to go
play in the field, but Rocky was hesitant in the
beginning, but now he’s ready to go. LOL we
had to leave them home the few times we went
to town for groceries and stuff being it was just
a bit too warm to take them, plus we are still
not totally trusting Rocky to not go poop in the
car just yet. Anyways, when we got home the
other day, I went in and let them out of their
crates and they made a beeline for the door.
When I opened it, they both ran out. We said
OK boys go potty and I think they misheard us
and they both started heading out to the field.
We managed to catch Rocky before he set off
his electronic fence collar. Benny doesn’t wear
one anymore, so he ran out quite a ways before
he noticed that we weren’t behind him and he
came running back. We’ll take them out in
the field this week. OK, now for some great
news. Today is my grandmothers birthday
(my moms mother) and she turned 108 years
old. I’ll put a few of her birthday pictures
in the stationery that my mom sent me. I’ll
also put in a couple of my grandmother and
me from last year when Judy and I went to
Texas for a visit. I wrote grandmother a
little birthday poem and sent it to my mom
and she said she would take it to her and
read it to her. Grandmother and Pawpaw
were always in my life. They both taught
me so much. They were like second parents.
I miss the old days back when we would
work in the garden together harvesting
crops, They grew everything and the food
always tasted so great. Grandmother used
to can her own foods. Pawpaw and me
spent many a night out on Lake Tawakanii
fishing and would come home by sunrise
and clean the fish and hand them over to
grandmother to fry up for dinner. Yep,
those were the days. I thank God for all
of those memories. Judy and I are making
memories of our own with the these two
boys and yes of course our dearly departed
Milo. Milo will always be a part of our
family. We see a lot of Milo in Rocky even
if they were not related other than being
dogs. It seems that Benny learned a few
things from Milo. Used to be that Milo
would bark for treats and Benny would
reap the rewards LOL, but now Benny
does the barking for treats and Rocky
reaps the rewards. Judy has got Benny
talking now sort of. He’ll ask for treats
in different tones and sounds LOL. Him
and Rocky were active yesterday and
Benny had decided to rest for a while
and I caught a video of Rocky using his
different toned barks asking Benny to
play with him hehehe. I’ll upload that
to my Facebook :) These boys make us
happy every day. They might get on our
nerves from time to time, but most of
the time they are a sight to see hehehe.
They do make it hard to write at times
when they are wanting our undivided
attention, especially Rocky LOL, but
aside from that, they are good boys :)
Judy’s been making some memes using
their pictures. I’ll put one of them in
the stationery. Of course like always
if you’re only receiving my journals via
plain text style, you won’t see them.
Sorry for that, but webmail and most
AOL will not display stationery email.
Stationery email is email that has been
formatted rich text (HTML) if you did
not know that. If by chance you have
changed your means of receiving your
email to an email browser that will
accept stationery email and you would
like to start receiving it, then send me
a little email asking to be changed and
you might want to include the email
address you’re wishing to be changed
if you are sending from a different
email addy than what you’re currently
signed up to receive from me. Other
than that, I will be able to use the one
that you emailed from :) I might one
day in the future start sending using
my other email address, but I’ll let
you know if and when that day does
occur. Until then, this is it hehehehe.
LOL I had to go to the bathroom a
moment ago and when I was done
and opened the door I looked down
and saw that I had a little body guard
watching the door. Rocky was waiting
for me to come back to the PC room
hehehehe. The other day when I went
to the bathroom he followed me there
and then shortly began barking at the
door for me to come out LOL. The
little guy missed me hehehe. Though
that can get old after a bit LOL. Yep,
our little home is filled with love and
excitement hehehe. OK so it might
not be exciting to you, but it is to us.
Oct 2nd is mine and Judy’s 14 year
wedding anniversary. We might have
to wait to celebrate till we get paid,
because both of us are pretty much
strapped for cash, but we shall see.
It’s hard to believe we met in a little
Yahoo Poetry egroup back in 2001
huh. Yep, April 1st 2001 was the
day that I got my first email from her.
It’s been a life changing experience.
I would of never allowed a dog to
stay in the house, but here ya go :)
God has managed to put two people
together from different aspects of life
and make them united. We found
that we had more in common than
we ever could of dreamed of. Yep,
God knows what He’s doing as always.
He’s put many people in our lives that
have helped us to grow. I thank God
for our family. My daughter and my
granddaughter not to mention all of
my new family with stepdaughters
and step grandchildren. They are a
blessing of abundance. I am getting
more excited by the day thinking about
my daughter Jamye and her daughter
(my granddaughter) coming up this
December for Christmas. I’m looking
forwards to meeting Jamye’s boyfriend
Brian and his son. I hope that nothing
happens to prevent their trip. I hope
they don’t mind staying with us in our
tiny mobile home. We aren’t rich by no
means LOL, but we are rich in love and
The Lord and that’s the best kind of
rich :) So, I reckon it’s time for me to
be taking my little trip back through 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 little place of
my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I found
a fairly decent title near the beginning
where I spoke of the poem I wrote for
my Grandmother :) So here’s another
one for my Grandmother. She deserves
many more, but I do have my limits :)
I love ya bunches Grandmother and
wish I could be there in person to wish
you a Happy Birthday, but this will have
to do. Maybe my mom (your daughter)
will read this one as well to you. Tons
of hugs and kisses. Now, it’s time to
give an effort to write a poem using
this title. Here goes :)

A Little Birthday Poem
(Happy Birthday Grandmother 108 years)

With every episode
of my own childhood days
I can remember
your wonderful ways,
so I wrote you a little
birthday poem true
that’s of my memories
that I have of you.
Every single moment
that I can remember
burns as a blessing
the brightest of ember.
A time long ago
when we used to play
Yahtzee and Monopoly
day after day.
Me with my cousin
and you with your smile
warmed by the fire
as time did compile.
You are now older
and wiser in mind
as many years passed
time unto time.
You’ve seen so much
as the years went on by
one hundred and eight
that just seemed to fly.
So now I am writing
how you’ve made me grown
through all your love
in a little birthday poem.

So :) did I put ya to sleep? I hope that you
enjoyed my rambling and maybe even the
poem to my Grandmother. I love her very
much. I wish I could be there to wish her a
happy birthday, but it’s just not possible at
this moment. I hope she likes the poems
I wrote for her. Judy just went and let in
the rugrats :) Rocky is now right behind
me squeaking on his squeaky toys hehehe.
Benny is lying down under the folding chair
that we have in for whenever Christian our
grandson wants to visit. We spend most
of our time in here either watching TV or
writing. OK so we both spend a lot of time
on Facebook. We’re retired. We go for
walks ever so often when taking the boys
out for field trips. Yes, we do more, but
is there a reason I must write it down?
LOL I thought not! Mom sent me some
pictures that were taken Friday of my
Grandmother at the nursing home. They
celebrated her birthday then being that
a lot of the workers would not be there
on the weekend and they all wanted to
celebrate with her. I haven’t much else
to tell you aside from what I normally
tell you every week and that is I wrote
some more poems and haiku. Yeppers,
10 more poems, but no Christmas poems
this week. Also I once again wrote 22
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there. I hope you can find one or two
of either or both that you like. Now it’s
time for me to be searching for that
not so elusive off switch, but not before
I wish you a most wonderful weekend
and a most blessed week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now,
where could that confounded off switch
be trying to hide this week? I use the
word TRYING very loosely hehehehe.
Hmm, I think I see movement behind
my saltshaker hehehe. Yep, once again
caught hiding behind something that is
not that large to hide behind. Will you
ever learn? Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe :)

My Inner Thoughts

Those thoughts I think
inside my head
are often what
are thought not said.
My inner thoughts
will take a ride
time to time
when I look outside.
The scenes I see
with colors born
my inner thoughts
then do adorn.
Inside my mind
I can create
a scene of time
another date.
My inner thoughts
are often found
alive and well
when I look around.

Certain Hues

Colors displayed
red and green
and some more
that eyes have seen.
Certain hues
will come on stage
of the time frame
age to age.
People watching
colors change
green to brown
and rearrange.
Autumn’s scattered
with the sight
colors painted
day and night.
Reds and greens
with browns and blues
are displayed as
some certain hues.

Now And Gone

Wantings wished for
dusk to dawn
might soon turn to
now and gone.
Life has ways of
changing place
what you wanted
changed its face.
Storms of troubles
come from greed
getting what you
do not need.
Now and gone
is situated
maybe better
For so often
life moves on
showing what that’s
now and gone.

As Years Go By

My time found
that swished and swayed
becomes an echo
that’s displayed.
Scenes remembered
given a try
becomes lessons
years go by.
Tiny fragments
I remember
might become
the brightest ember.
What was just
a moments time
became as my
certain rhyme.
As years go by
I change each day
and what once was
is a different way.
Yet so many
never tried
to get to know me
deep inside.
So with that said
I move on
as years go by
and then is gone.

Looking For Stars

At night with moonlight
I’m looking for stars,
but often only finding
Venus and Mars.
Yet as I gaze up
at the sky oh so dark
the stars start to twinkle
as their lights embark.
Looking for stars
in the middle of the night
gives me a neck ache
when looking for light.
Then as if magic
the sky is found full
stars that are twinkling
that look super cool.
Designs in the starlight
are painted so fine
while looking for stars
of a unique design.

God’s Love For Free

God gave me blessings,
but many I missed
as I continued
my own bucket list.
We all will so often
not see what that’s true
and miss all the blessings
God gave me and you.
Those times when struggling
and out on a limb
you may not of found that
true love is Him.
He sends us some angels
to guide here and there
and you may truly never
know that they’re there.
They might be an angel
someone that you see,
but you may not know
they’re God’s love for free.
He’s there just awaiting
for you to realize
that all you have to do
is seek His Devise.

A Short Path To Smiles

As each day moves forwards
some frowns might appear
as time exposes them
year after year.
A short path to smiles
is a journey well taken,
maybe by a giggle
or something mistaken.
The journey through life
might become bestowed
as only your sadness
down an old bumpy road.
A short path to smiles
might be found on the way
that you have eluded
and found Hell to pay.
Take a little journey now
with not many miles
and look for the laughter
a short path to smiles.

Dreams Found In White

Summer is ending
and losing its stride
as I am steadfast
with dreams found in white.
Now’s just illusion,
but soon I will see
dreams found in white
as my reality.
The colors of autumn
will soon be displayed
the colors of paintings
as bright lemonade.
Dreams found in white
will surely expose
wintertime’s doorway
with many things froze.
Snow on the driveway
with signs that I’m older,
for I have now gone and
bought a snow blower.
Now as I’m awaiting
to test that things might
my snow blowers charged for
dreams found in white.

Clean Out Your Closet

Don’t let your baggage
to become so much,
that many find you
a bit out of touch.
Clean out your closet
and make room for now,
for if you don’t then
less good you’ll endow.
You’ll only find things
that you once had viewed
better that moment,
but now misconstrued.
Clean out your closet
and let God help you
find a much better
lifetime to view.
Don’t let the baggage
to become so large
that it is all that
daily takes charge.

My Grandmother
(I love you Grandmother)

She was a person
that I looked up to
and my grandmother
is still that so true.
She taught me to cook
and do many things
like creating life
with the knitting of strings.
Now she’s much older,
but still has that smile
that makes me happy
though distant the mile.
I love my grandmother,
for she helped me find
life in a new way
with my own design.
Her birthday is here now
and that is so great,
for she’s still alive at
one hundred and eight.

for Sept 19, 2015

Many find stories
as only a waste of time,
but they give us growth.

Even the most boring
can enlighten with some words,
but maybe later.

Joining together
with two hearts beating truly
shows differences.

Not looking forwards
could cause you much destruction,
for the past is done.

Deceptions doorway
opens with some fish stories
that were not so true.

Witnessing a crime,
but keeping it to yourself
could come back to haunt.

Rubbernecking people
will often cause accidents
while trying to see.

Many months of snow
will come as winter grabs hold
until it’s springtime.

Pages of ones life
might not concur with their book,
for they might have changed.

Living as a fool
will most surely be displayed
in all you acquire.

Our reality
might not be what we perceive,
for it might be fake.

Life in a bubble
will prevent you from living
and growing stronger.

The looks of a thief
have no designated style,
for they look like us.

Aboard a vessel
sailing on the oceans waves
you might become green.

Ones stupidity
might turn into a landslide
if they never learn.

Desires of the heart
are often clouded by thoughts
wanting another.

Within a snowflake
holds many different views
to bond into one.

Summertime’s passing
might breathe a sigh of relief
in ones hot natured.

Less of our judging
will allow others to bloom
into good people.

The flowers of spring
are remembered through summer,
but lost in winter.

Today’s legacy
finds tools through our yesterdays
to heighten our view.

Repeating problems
will only make them greater,
so learn from the past.

Heaven To Join


Hello my friends

Here I am once again with a little more
rambling. I hope you are doing well or
as well as possible. It’s been rather nice
around here. Judy went over to her ex’s
house Labor day to spend time with her
daughters. She took Benny and Rocky
so to give me a break from them for a bit.
I enjoyed the time alone and even wrote
a poem about Judy and I and it’s a long
one LOL. I told her I would probably
write her a poem, but it turned into a
freaken story titled Here Is A Story :)
Judy came home early and she said it
was starting to rain when she left. She
took tons of pictures and many of them
are of the boys playing with their little
cousins Peanut and Khione. They were
tired little pups when they got home :)
LOL Judy was tired too. We looked
at all of the pictures she took and then
I copied them to my PC. We took the
boys on a couple of field trips last week.
Rocky has gotten to where he loves to
go for runs/walks in the field in front
of our home. Him and Benny run side
by side and play chase. Milo used to
do that with Benny up until he started
getting sick, The poor guy wanted to
keep playing with Benny, but he was
just not able. Benny’s little brother
Rocky can wear him out hehehe. He
always wants to play. Benny was like
that when he was younger, but he has
slowed down a little since then. Yet he
still loves to run and play and boy oh boy
was he excited when we headed out to
the field and this time Rocky ran right
along with him. We heard Benny give
out a bark that we never heard before :)
It was a bark of joy. Rocky up until
then would only come out a few feet in
the field, because when we first got him
we did him the same way as we did both
Benny and Milo and made him wear
the electric fence collar which would
not allow him to go into the field and
one day when he went too far, he was
shocked. But now that he knows the
boundaries the same as Benny, we let
him go outside without it. He was just
leery of going out with us, but I guess
that day he really wanted to play with
Benny and he chanced it and he was
so excited. He will still not go out there
without us as is the same with Benny.
They know that we are to be with them.
Benny will often follow me out to the
mailbox and wait for me on the other
side of the road in the driveway. Then
run ahead of me heading back to the
house hehehe. Milo used to do the
very same. Rocky might do that in
the future, but he’s still learning what
he is and is not to do. So only in time.
Today’s high is supposed to be 69 F
and right now it’s 67 F at 3:00 in the
afternoon. Tomorrow’s forecasted
high is 67 F. I am so excited to get
a chance to test out our new snow
blower. I know I’ll still have to use
the snow shovel on parts, but not as
much. At least hopefully not as much 😉
Judy and I cannot wait to see Rocky’s
reaction to his first sight of snow 😮
For all we know, he might love it as
much as Benny does. Benny simply
loves snow and we have to wait for
him to get tired or too cold before
he will come back in without a fuss.
We might have 2 snow dogs on our
hands hehehe. Rocky has begun to
do many of the same things as Benny.
We often look out and they will be
both lying underneath the car side
by side. OK, next topic. We haven’t
heard much from Ricky except he is
having more health issues. Kidney
stones and bladder infections. He
needs your prayers. He is in the
nursing home and he is happy. He
has made a friend there and that’s
something he has never had. Before
he always stayed to himself. I guess
being at the nursing home brought
him out of his shell a little bit. He’s
a good guy. He is struggling with
the loss of his leg beneath his knee
though. He’s lucky that is all that
he lost. Gangrene can take your
life if not careful. So, what else is
there to talk about. Rocky is in a
feisty mood wanting to play hehehe.
I managed to trim some of the hair
away from his eyes so he can see,
but not without a bit of a struggle.
LOL he doesn’t like the scissors, but
I got it done, sort of hehehe. We’ll
wait a while to give him and Benny a
haircut until after winter as we have
always done. We might trim them
up just a tad once in a while such as
from their eyes, but they’ll need the
hair to keep them warm when they
are out in the snow playing. It does
get rather cold up this way. I called
my Aunt Anna the other day and she
was excited to hear from me. She
is my moms oldest sister. We had
a nice talk. I try my best to keep in
touch with my family and friends,
but I can only do so much. Anna
now has our phone number, so she
can call us :) I wish I could snap my
fingers and visit all of my family and
friends, but I can’t, so I do what
I can. My mom is doing well. We
keep in contact always. I wish her
and my sister could come up for a
visit. My sister Peggy was wanting
to come up and asked if mom was
wanting to and I said that the last
time I talked to her she said she
wanted to. Who knows, maybe in
the next year they’ll make the drive
up again. They came up in 2008
shortly after Judy and I had moved
up here, but Peggy had some stuff
to tend to back home so they had
to leave early. I hope yall can make
it up soon. There is so much to see
that you didn’t stay long enough to
see. I have been chatting with my
daughters boyfriend Brian and he
seems like a nice polite guy. They
are coming up for Christmas and
bringing my granddaughter Sami
and Brian’s little boy. It should be
a wondrous time. They have never
seen snow as we get up here being
they are from Texas the same as
me LOL. I was blown away when
I saw all the snow. LOL up until
April of 2008 I thought our house
was sitting on a snow mound LOL.
We moved up here on the first of
December or thereabouts. I have
a feeling a few snowball fights will
occur and maybe even a few tries
at making a snowman and snow
angels hehehe. Anyways, that’s
about all I have to ramble about.
God is always number 1 around
here. He has made sure that we
have all that we need and protected
us from danger. We know that
when our time is up within these
bodies, we will find our way to
Heaven to join those that have
gone on before us. Judy and I
know that we will always be a
family for even in death there is
life. I praise God for all that He
has done for us and that He will
do. I hope that you have found
a relationship with Him and have
allowed Him to work within you.
If you haven’t, then why not today?
Now I believe it’s time for me to
begin my search back through
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 seem to always like to call
I found a halfway decent title just
a few lines back. So, let’s see how
I do with it LOL. Here goes!!!

Heaven To Join

Time is a bubble
that many will bust
left in the middle
of their lack of trust.
Heaven to join
becomes just a time
with many doubting
what all they will find.
With our believing
brings faith to arise
Heaven to join
those now in the skies.
That wondrous place
that is Holier true
is Heaven to join
together me and you.
For our existence
is that of a while
connecting with others
a time to compile.
Let God to live now
inside of your heart
then Heaven to join
will be your depart.

So, how’d I do? LOL I know, it ain’t
that great, but I did my best with what
I had. It’s 67 F degrees at 4:30 PM and
Rocky is still wanting to play. Judy let
them outside a bit ago and little Rocky
decided to go exploring a little further
than he is allowed to without us and
Judy was at the door hollering for him
to come home. I stepped out the door
and yelled Rocky and he came running.
He heard me and knew he was in trouble
LOL. I have one of those voices hehehe.
It’s like my dads was. A lot of people
say that they think of my dad when they
hear me speak, plus I have his green
eyes as well and his white beard LOL.
Life continues on in the Pearce’s Place.
I reckon it’s time for me to be telling
you what I tell you almost every week
and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yep, 10 more poems with
1 being a Christmas poem and 1 being
a really long story poem :) Also once
again I wrote 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 believe it’s time for me
to be searching for that not so great
at hiding off switch, but not before
I wish you a most wonderful weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a most
blessed prayerful week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now,
where’s that darned off switch hiding
this time? Oh for Christ Sake, not
behind my respirator agin. You do
know I have asthma don’t you, you
freaking nut, don’t you????? LOL!
Try a little harder next week will ya.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe :)

Here Is A Story

Past becomes echoes
of yesterdays dreams
ones wishing true love
on starlight moonbeams.
Here is a story
of how miles inlaid
the time of a porthole
that Lord God had made.
Two sat so lonely
just looking for friends
as God entwined
a time with loose ends.
Knots were tied surely
as time moved along
and here is a story
how two became one.
A little poetry club
of so long ago
found on the internet
had them to flow.
The past came alive
and flourished a start,
two found together
with one beating heart.
Time then was counted
to days then to meet
one on a plane
and the other to greet.
Those two together
then went for a ride
finally in person
with true love inside.
Their hearts were a twitter
as miles went their way
and two later found
a great wedding day.
Yet there were things
that the other had to do
as he got on the plane
and away he then flew,
but he promised his love
that he would return
in time to be married
so have no concern.
He returned a little later
a month or so true
to be her loving husband
with life started new.
October the second
2001 found them married
and a month later
true heartbeats they carried.
Southbound to Texas
they drove oh so far
to live life together
as God’s shining star.
They had normal problems,
but still found a way
to keep God within them
with day after day.
Here is a story
about two loving souls
now found together
connected with goals.
The heartbeats united
are Judy and I
joined with some others
from Heaven so high.
The end of November
2007 displayed
us on a journey
December portrayed.
Up north to Maine
new life was begun
us with the blessings
from Jesus God’s Son.
White snow was falling
and landing in place
finding our new home
filled with God’s grace.
We saw many moments
some good and not so
joined with the journeys
as our lives did grow.
The struggles we found
made us much stronger
as we continue
our lives a bit longer.
Then with the ticking
of times changing hue
our little family
much greater it grew
Now we’ve got doggies
that bring us much joy
as they bounce around
with every dog toy.
Life’s so abundant
with us holding tight
Here is a story
how God did unite.

The Midnight Moon

Stars are shining
with moonlight
amidst the moment
in the night.
Scenes are pictured
painted so
with the starlight
times bestow.
With each segment
times attune
connecting with
the midnight moon.
After midnight
it moves on
the midnight moon
to early dawn.
Changing places
in the sky
the midnight moon
will just fly by.
Then as sunrise
comes in view
the midnight moon
is somewhere new.

Storms Of Winter

Summers demise
comes with some colors
painted with leaves
and many others.
Then as the leaves
all fall to the ground,
soon there is winter
with white all around.
The storms of winter
start out with ease
displaying stages
of white snow on trees.
Painting with passion
the snow makes a sight
displayed as winter
found oh so white.
Each scene is patterned
with its special way
as storms of winter
perform their display.
Seen by a camera
while found front and center
December brings us
some white storms of winter.

The Sound Of Happy

When life tosses trouble
and smiles are not found
sometimes a sound can
turn that around.
The sound of happy
from some little thing
can help a storm cloud
find shades of spring.
A small little dog
playing with a toy
brings forth the happy
to fill you with joy.
The sound of happy
can also be heard
from that of nature
with the tweet of a bird.
The sound can be also
a memory of yours
that brings a smile
which laughter secures.
The sound of happy
can be what you chose
found as a moment
you visioned a rose.

So Distant Thoughts

Beyond what’s seen
are things I recall
so distant thoughts
from time frames so tall.
Every single second
comes back with a glance
so distant thoughts
from each song and dance.
Each minute studded
with music we made
my bands of time
I wish would of stayed.
Recalling the joyful
sessions recorded
now are the moments
that are not afforded.
My first little group
we played oh so fine
a learning degree
that was so divine.
We wrote songs together
and made little tunes
often in the shade
of late afternoons.
Those days I remember
so well in my heart
I wish we had never
seen to depart.
Life brings alive
a journey across
a universe of times
so distant thoughts.

Perfection’s Illusion

Some think they’re perfect,
but it’s just illusion
while they are filled with
so much confusion.
Yes we are perfect
in God’s Eyes for sure,
but what is human
is sinful allure.
We each have a way
of doing what’s wrong
even if we think
it’s part of our song.
Perfection’s illusion
comes with a gaze
leading so many
down bitter sweet days.
Yes we are perfect
as God made us true,
but our sins are uncovered
in me and in you.
We each make mistakes
so perfectly wrong
as we learn lessons
as time moves along.

A Winding Road

Footprints we make
while walking along
leave many trails
while singing our song.
A winding road
that catches our step
might then become
a time frame inept.
For as the pathway
becomes bestowed
with many rocks found
on down the road,
your own way intended
might end in despair
as you find out that
you’re going nowhere.
You might need to ask
for God’s help that day
and then allow Him
to show you the way.
Then a winding road
will display a path
away from confusions
own aftermath.

The Sound Of Christmas

A little child’s heartbeat
that sleeps in the night
dreaming of Santa
and each Christmas light
becomes as a picture
painted with smiles
as sugarplum fairies
in wintertime styles.
The sound of Christmas
are what many hear
as jingles and jangles
of that time of year.
Heard on the radio
Christmas songs playing
with words of Jesus
and many found praying.
The sound of Christmas
is what many find
when they’re awakened
with its own design.
The seasonal blessings
that then come alive
become as excitement
for it to arrive.
The sound of Christmas
is found in a heart
ones that are waiting
for Christmas to start.
The joy and laughter
that comes in to shine
is the sound of Christmas
Lord Jesus designed.

Secrets Of Time

Hidden from many
some times might be
things we imagine,
but are reality.
Secrets of time
are often in place
hidden in formats
of our smell and taste.
Often the secrets
are not hidden well,
but many find them
as much more to tell.
Scenes in the distance
we might just discern
as secrets of time
with a much different turn.
Not what’s imagined
and sought for to find
some moments might be
just secrets of time.

Disturbed Shadows

Night finds some shadows
as glimmers of fear
often in darkness
when sight is not clear.
Disturbed shadows
with pictures inlaid
as many nightmares
that your dreams have made.
Yet disturbed shadows
might be many things
that in the daylight
fills life full of dreams.
But in the night sky
with moonlight and stars
disturbed shadows
are fearful night scars.
So when at nighttime
some chills are exposed
remember they might be
just disturbed shadows.

Lost in perception
we might entwine our own views
and not understand.

When riding the wind
the wings of an eagle spread
to catch a smooth ride.

A footstep in time
can often be misconceived
due to the lack of.

Deciphered journals
might be wrongly understood
with you in the dark.

With the first snowflakes
comes the coldness of winter
with much more to come.

Left handed people
might find a lot of conflicts
in right handed worlds.

Many aromas
are not made to appeal us,
but to give warning.

Past to the present
brings forth many ideas
that might change in time.

The length of a foot
changes when describing fish
and what got away.

Various turnstiles
bring beginnings of trouble
and others bring peace.

Amidst true passion
holds ingredients for love,
but sometimes all wrong.

Disabled people
are not totally crippled,
for they still have God.

Painting a picture
needs the thought of an image
and canvas to paint.

Grandeur illusion
finds many living a dream
when it is not true.

Summers scenery
will soon fade away from sight
leaving us autumn.

The promise of change
comes when one can’t continue
the way they’re going.

A fool and his thoughts
will often find him trouble
from all his nonsense.

Camping in the woods
you might come across some sounds
that keep you awake.

Pointing at others
draws attention to yourself
and how that you are.

Aromas of clouds
come as seasonal moments
with raindrops to fall.

Winter winds will blow
bringing life from fallen snow
creating pictures.

Distant memories
can be tools to bring us smiles
if used correctly.

Since The Beginning


Hello my friends

We’re still kicking up the dirt around here.
Judy and I have been enjoying the weather
and watching the days fly by. The boys are
doing good. Rocky is right behind me now
playing with his squeaky toys. The weather
has been nice. It’s getting cooler with each
passing week. I went on line last Thursday
and bought us a 40 volt battery operated
snow blower from SEARS. It will sure be
great not having to shovel so much. Yes I
know, I’ll still have to shovel around the car
and a few places, but it will help us to be
able to get out of our driveway without me
breaking my back trying to clear a path.
Also it will work great to make poop paths
for the boys. As long as I get to it before
the snow gets above 6 inches. Much above
that and I’ll have to use the shovel. That’s
OK! It will take the load off of my back
and shoulders. I do love to watch it snow
and see the beauty that comes in sight as
the snow lands and starts decorating. Our
grandson came to stay with us yesterday.
Saturday was his 14th birthday. He said he
wanted to stay the night also so Judy got
in touch with his mom (her daughter) and
asked if he could stay and she said yes.
He slept on the recliner in the living room
as he always does, but I think he stayed
up all night playing with the tablet that
his Uncle Dennis and Aunt Trudy gave
him for his birthday :) I think he comes
for our Internet hehehe. Oh well, We
enjoy him being here. We watched a few
Dragonball Z videos and some videos
on the Youtube. Judy and I bought him
a birthday cake and we all went to town
and got us something to eat. He wanted
pizza so he got pizza. Judy and I got us
some sub sandwiches from SUBWAY.
It was a nice day. Judy and I have been
still working on Rocky and trying to get
him potty trained. Last night was the first
night since we started putting him in
his crate to sleep, that we let him sleep
out of it with Benny. LOL and the first
thing he did, was head over to the crate
and climb in hehehe. I went and petted
him and he sort of came out, then he
got out and went and laid down beside
Benny in a doggy bed. I think he was
just a little bit confused, but he soon
fell asleep and he didn’t make potty in
the house, YEAH. If we can ever get
to where we can trust him more, we’ll
start taking him and Benny with us agin
when we go somewhere, but the last
time we took him, he made a freaking
stinky mess in the car and it took me a
while to clean it up. Fortunately we’ve
got the rear seats covered with a dog
protection cover, but some poop still
got on the seat, so I had to scrub it
with cleaner. It’s good as new now :)
But we’ll wait a little longer before we
trust to take him with us and Benny
has gotta stay with him, because he
doesn’t like to be alone. I’m sure that
in a week or so we’ll be able to take
them both with us. Of course we can
take them with us if we’re going for a
short drive or not leaving them in the
car alone for any amount of time, but
the time Rocky made his mess was
when we went to Walmart. LOL and
little Benny had climbed up into the
front seat to try and get away from
the mess. LOL he couldn’t stand the
smell and believe you me, it was a
stinky ride home UGH. Anyways,
off to another topic hopefully not
about poop hehehe. Judy is in here
now browsing the Internet. Christian
stuck his head in here just a bit ago to
say good morning. LOL I can’t wait
for the first good snowing so I can
use our snow blower hehehe. I’ve
never owned one, but then again I
am from Texas and there’s not much
use for a snow blower there LOL.
Yes, I have lived up here for over
7 years now, but I had been doing
Ok with a shovel, but I ain’t getting
any younger :) I turned 59 last week
and my body turned what feels like
100 hehehe. It’s been through Hell
and back. Where is Heaven when
you need it LOL? I guess we’ve got
to take the bad with the good huh.
Yep, I enjoy taking pictures of God’s
beauty, but sometimes the journey
to the photos gets the best of me :)
I was taking a little trip back through
all of our old photos from Texas last
night. Ones we took down at Port
Aransas and thereabouts. Watching
a few of the videos that we took of
the ocean sure made me smile. We
have thousands of pictures and many
videos that bring back the memories
of our favorite places. I wish digital
cameras would have been out when
I was much younger. I’d have a lot
more pictures of family and friends.
In the old film camera days, you
weren’t guarantied that the pictures
you took were going to be any good.
Plus you were very limited on how
many you could take. You couldn’t
take tons of pictures as you do now.
Problems with film, would be that
if it got too hot it would ruin and the
same if it got too cold. The film would
either over expose, double expose or
like so often has happened in the past,
forgot to take the lens cap off and the
pictures came out black. Nope I do
not miss those old cameras at ALL.
I would love to have some pictures of
some of my old friends from childhood
and my first dog/best friend. I have so
much that I wish I had photos of, but
now it only lives as memories. Great
moments such as me and my Papa
fishing the night away together in his
boat on Lake Tawakanii. Wonderful
moments that I wish I had been able to
photograph. I do though remember
them well. So, now days, Judy and
I take as many pictures as we cane
of each moment that comes before us
so we can reminisce them as time
goes by. I stopped writing for a bit
to fix Judy, Christian and me some
breakfast. He stuck his head in and
asked, when are we gonna eat and
Judy said Grandpa will fix it in a bit.
I stopped shortly after and headed to
the kitchen and so did the boys. Yep
Benny and Rocky followed me in and
watched. Rocky decided that he was
gonna get a close up look as he sat
right in my way LOL. In front of the
refrigerator, the cupboard and the
oven LOL. He would follow me to
wherever I happened to be or plant
himself where I needed to go hehehe.
Benny watched from the living room.
So, we have eaten breakfast which
to many of you at this time frame is
brunch hehehe. This home has most
definitely been blessed. God has
taken care of us since the beginning.
Even before I met Judy I could see
where He had stepped in with His
Mighty Hands and protected me to
shine for future days. Yes, I have
had many struggles to which many
have never known, because I lived
a life of no tears exposed. No, I did
not let people see me cry. I thought
it would be a sign of weakness, but
found out later that showing my tears
was a sign of strength allowing ones
to help me. The Animal of today is
not afraid to cry, but yet still will
hold it in as long as possible. Crying
over spilled milk so to say brings no
help for the times that you really do
need help. Sort of like crying wolf.
I reckon it’s time for me to begin
my journey back through all that I
have 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, away I go to that lil place
of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think
I found a good title and now to see if
I can do anything with it LOL.

Since The Beginning

When days were but only
some times long ago
God brought us blessings
that many don’t know.
Since the beginning
He watched with His Love
sharing His blessings
from Heaven above.
He gave us so much
that was not a need,
yet ones are so often
filled full of greed.
Since the beginning
we’ve each strived so true
to do many things
we saw others do.
God provided gifts
to be you and me
since the beginning
of our history.
Each with our own gift
of walking our way,
ones that are drumming
with their own display.
We are given choices,
but need to choose well
not letting Satan
to take us to Hell.
Since the beginning
our growth has begun
ones learning better
with each rising sun.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and
maybe even the poem LOL. Hopefully
you understood it. My life is a journey
that often leads to nowhere hehehehe.
Often it’s just a little stumble through
the day without any direction intended.
I just head out taking pictures of every
little thing that comes into my field of
view/or not LOL. I’m almost always
with my camera in hand. Every once
in a while I’ll luck into a great shot.
So, OK, I guess I need to stop here
before I get caught up into Rambles
Ville again hehehe, but before I do
I want to thank you for all of your
prayers for my granddaughter Sami.
She is out of the hospital now and
doing well. Now to tell you what I
tell you almost every week and that
is, I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yeppers 10 more poems, but
none of them are Christmas related
this week. Also I wrote 22 more
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there. I hope you can find maybe 1
or 2 of either or both that you like.
Now, it’s time for me to begin my
search for that no so elusive off
switch, but not before I wish you
a most magnificent weekend or
whatever’s left of it and a truly
blessings filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.
OK, so where is that confounded
off switch trying to hide this week?
Hmm, me thinks I might see a bit
of movement behind my glass of
orange juice hehehe. Yep, gotcha,
see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe :)

Discretional Moments

Chosen by a person
of their own little way
discretional moments
are of their display.
So many choices
with patterns to choose
discretional moments
are then win or lose.
Found in the mirror
ones might see hindsight
discretional moments
that did not go right.
So some discretion
might need thought over
before they get crushed
by a learning bulldozer.
Discretional moments
will sometimes be good,
for they are sometimes
doing what you should.

Disruptive Thoughts

Repetitive thinking
might keep you lost
feeling your life with
disruptive thoughts.
Links to illusions
will come from inside
things that we wish for
that time has denied.
Disruptive thinking
will lead you astray
due to the mishaps
from some other day.
Often our patterns
will form from a while
that some disruption
did one day compile.
So don’t let others
with life surely lost
to come and fill you
with disruptive thoughts.
Use what God gave you
to think and procure
much better actions
not filled with manure.
Disruptive thoughts
can become who you are
if you allow them
to guide you too far.

Various Eyes

Scenes that we’re seeing
from ground to the skies
might look much different
in various eyes.
Each with our eyesight
and things that we view
might be uniquely
just me or just you.
Various people
will see fluffy clouds
and then some others
will see rain with shrouds.
The mornings sunrise
has new things to view
and various eyes
will see red and blue.
Flowers found blooming
will give scents to smell
that various eyes
might not see so well.
The moments renditions
from ground to the skies
might seem so different
with various eyes.

Early September

Now with the minutes
the moments are gone
August has left us
a September dawn.
Early September
brings fall soon to show
followed by winter
and its time to snow.
September wonders
are now so alive
pages of glimmers
with colors to thrive.
Early September
is slow with its voice,
but it will soon be
with colors rejoice.
Blending October
with its sort of flair,
early September
gives its love and care.
Even November
will display the same
seen with the colors
of September’s game.
So let the blessings
be great to remember
the things that began
with early September.

Found In The Clouds

Seasons are changing,
the skies rearranging,
found in the clouds
with momentous crowds.
Each with its journey
the skies own attorney,
clouds of pure white
or darkness in sight.
God’s Own emotions
are found as some oceans
in the sky up above
and filled with His love.
The clouds seem to be
floating in the sea
as a picture floats in
with change to begin.
Found in the clouds
are sights of some shrouds
that hide the sunshine
with God’s Own design.

Celestial Journey

A trip through the cosmos
with ones imagination
can become a journey
of unknown destination.
A celestial journey
to some place faraway
starts with a thought
and dream to display.
That dream can become
a fantastic wonder
headed far beyond
the lightning and thunder.
With but a second
your mind can take flight,
a celestial journey
found in the night.
A dream oh so wonderful
found in your mind
displaying wormholes,
a new place and time.
A celestial journey
that might just come true
if you believe
that it’s within you.

Simply Believe

With faith comes the power
to let bygones lay
for Jesus Christ hears us
when we kneel and pray.
Life turns disaster
with worrisome weave,
but peace will be given
to simply believe.
Not allowing Hell bent
to live in your heart,
will allow Heaven sent
to then impart.
So simply believe now,
let God live in you
in the ways that you’re thinking
and things that you do.
Sometimes a moment
is how you perceive
and good can be found then
simply believe.

Horizon With Colors

The distant horizon
shows colors so fine
painted as pictures
that are so divine.
A horizon of colors
of red, blue and green
brings us the pictures
that look like a dream.
Seasons will change each
distant found view,
colors united
into something new.
Pinks and some oranges
paint up the sky
with many brush strokes
ones can’t deny.
Each day brings flavors
the distant sky covers
painted emotions
horizon of colors.

An Impending Breath

New lives encounter
a new way to view
with every moment
and new things to do.
An impending breath
comes forth with a style
sometimes from many
that have not a smile.
So many people
will just frown away
when many others
see a new day.
An impending breath
that small eyes look through
display perceptions
found so anew.
So take a breath now
and breathe in a prayer
an impending breath
so filled with fresh air.
Let loose your sadness,
and learn how to smile
an impending breath
not found as so vile.
Look now today now
and see what can grow
from life’s impending ways
with Jesus to know.

Door To My Heart

Miles through a moment
counted a way
a long time ago
to one distant day.
The door to my heart
opened real wide
allowing true love
to come deep inside.
Miles didn’t matter
for love brought me through
the door to my heart
was opened by you.
We were united
as one family
and the door to my heart
became you and me.
We found the years
were gathered with love
bonded with heartbeats
from Lord God above.

To Judy Ann Pearce
From William Earl Pearce
I love you

for Sept 4, 2015

Tomorrow’s doorway
might not hold good within it,
but chance needs taken.

Often confusion
will come from lack of lessons
taught from our childhood.

When moving forwards
you might leave some things behind
that you’re still wanting.

As today moves on
tomorrow finds a heartbeat
within the days stage.

Belonging to groups
won’t make you anybody,
for they are not you.

Parts of oxygen
come to us as what we drink
and then what we breathe.

Linking to mishap
will grow you a large thorn bush
that will leave a pain.

Giving of yourself
will give back a great feeling
that money can’t buy.

Looking for peaceful
might uncover your own thoughts
if you look within.

The changing of times
are some doorways with handles
that open and close.

Lines we’ve created
might not be as straight as thought,
for they might be bent.

Disabled people
still have abilities in life,
but more limited.

Between some bookends
holds a place for a few books
to teach in a way.

Living with a lie
will make life miserable
for the truth is there.

Becoming a man
is not done with cowboy spurs,
but by growing up.

In the oceans deep
there’s many different things
that we haven’t found.

Now is a moment
that will soon become the past
with future to come.

Describing yourself
could become real hard to do
if you are lying.

Lost in perception
finds many with their own view
of a certain sight.

A vine for swinging
might one day fail to hold you
as you fall to Earth.

When getting older
the numbers mean not a thing,
for they don’t say smart.

A clown with a smile
might be hiding misery
and laughing loudly.

As The Seasons


Hello my friends

It’s been a fairly decent week these passed
few days. Rocky is finally starting to do his
stuff outside like a good boy. Though we’ve
been keeping him under constant watch so
to see when he needs to go out. We’ve been
putting him in his crate at night and letting
him out in the morning and he heads for the
front door with Benny because he’s gotta go
potty. Hopefully he will have it mastered by
winter hehehe. Hopefully before, for his own
sake LOL. Although he has been good the
passed few days. He seems to be catching
on. We’ve heard that Shih tzus are one of
the hardest dogs to teach which also falls in
the category of potty training hehehe. So
it’s normal for his breed to be a little harder
to train than others. It doesn’t stop us from
getting tired of cleaning up his mess though.
LOL, but as I said, it looks like he’s slowly
but surely catching on. Ok, so what else is
there to yammer about hehehe? Judy has
gone with her sisters to visit their brother
Ricky up north of us in a nursing home.
The boys are outside right now and reason
being is that they seem to want me to play
with them at the most inappropriate times,
such as like now when I’m trying to write.
I’ll let them in when I’m done hehehe. Last
week they were both in ornery moods and
wanting my undivided attention when I was
in the middle of my journal LOL. I’d write
a bit and then feel paws upon my arm as
one or the other would jump up to say hi.
Gotta love them boys hehehe. Rocky is
at the back door and every time he sees
me heading in the direction of the front
door or thereabouts such as the restroom
he makes a mad dash for the front door.
Then when he sees that I didn’t come to
the front door he runs quickly to the back
door to watch for me hehehe. He is so
silly! It turned out to be a beautiful day
today. It’s 75 F degree right now at 5;30
PM and that’s supposed to be the high for
today. It’s supposed to be a tad warmer
tomorrow. No telling what tomorrow
will bring though LOL. Another day to
celebrate life. These 2 boys bring us joy
each day. Judy should be home soon.
She left with her sisters at noon and it’s
6:30 now. The temperature has gone
down a few degrees and that’s great :)
Life in the fast lane LOL. Nope it ain’t
too fast here at the Pearce’s Place LOL.
I’ve taken a few pictures this passed
week. I’ll put a few in the stationery
as I do every week. I hope you like a
few of them. As the seasons change I’ll
have a lot more to take pictures of :)
I’ve been going and checking on the
boys from time to time and they’re OK.
Rocky still heads for the front door
every time he sees me hehehe. I’ll let
them in after I have gotten done with
the hardest part of the journal and that
is the poem. Judy has been real busy
writing her book. I’ve edited 6 chapters
and tons more to go. She helps me edit
my poems and all. Just reading them
aloud to her helps a ton. So far, what
I’ve read of her book is GREAT. She
has quite an imagination. Unless you
didn’t know, she’s writing a scifi novel.
Maybe one day it will be made into a
movie. You never know :) I thank
God for the blessings that He’s given
us as each day comes to shine. Don’t
ever think that God is not listening,
because He is. He’s always waiting
for us to get out of ourselves and let
Him to work through us. Let God to
shine in your life. Of course you will
make mistakes, but God will use them
to make good to spawn. Learn from
your mistakes. Don’t let the mistakes
to pull you down. Let God show you
how they can pick you up and make
you stronger. Now I believe it’s time
for me to be taking a little visit back
through 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 had to stop a moment and
let the boys in. I could tell that they
were quite ready to come back inside,
but I may have made a mistake LOL.
Rocky is now behind me playing with
the squeaky toys hehehe. Oh well,
I believe I found a good title just a
little ways back near the middle of
my rambling. Sheesh Rocky hehehe!
Could ya give it a break for a little
bit. That squeaky squeak makes it
hard to think. Anyways, here goes.

As The Seasons

Each new morning
brings a shine
from the bright sun
time to time.
As the seasons
change their flow,
soon comes Autumn
then white snow.
Now is summer
heat discerned,
some found swimming,
some sunburned.
As the seasons
find their place
many find a
smiling face.
With God’s blessings
found so bright
seasons change
each day and night.
As the seasons
place their name
each is with its
note to fame.
Spring from winter
gives its flow
using winters
melting snow.
Then comes summer
counted true
with ones seeking
more to do.
Fall then beckons
painted leaves
that soon fall
from all the trees.
Then at last
dear winter finds
wondrous blessings
Christmas time.

I hope you enjoyed the poem and it made
you smile. I also hope you enjoyed all of
my rambling :) Now I need to ask you to
give special prayer for my granddaughter
Sami. She is back in the hospital with a
kidney infection. It seems she has been
in the hospital more than out of it. The
poor little girl has been through Hell with
her Spina Bifida. Please say a prayer for
her. I know God is in control, but prayer
does wonders. Gramps loves you Sami :)
So, that is all that I can think of to tell
you aside from the fact that Rocky is in
overdrive and keeps nudging me with his
nose and pawing at me LOL. Yes, he’s
still playing with the squeaking dog toys.
He just jumped and put his paws on my
computer desk as if to say HELLO :)
Finally, he’s eating his food and leaving
me alone for a bit hehehe. Benny is in
his doggy bed ignoring Rocky as best
that he can LOL. If he bothers him too
much, I’ll hear a little muffled grrrrrr.
LOL, they love each other more than
we could ever have dreamed. We were
afraid that Benny would not be able
to move on from Milo, but he did. We
can tell from time to time that he still
thinks of him when we accidentally call
Rocky Milo. Yes, we still think of our
old boy Milo. He will always be a part
of our lives. His ashes are sat atop of
our TV in the living room. But as life
goes on, we shall also. Now I believe
it’s time for me to be telling you what
I tell you almost every week and that
is, I wrote some more poems with 1
of them being sort of Christmassy :)
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there or should
I say 23, being I accidentally wrote
1 extra hehehe. So sue me hehehe!
OK, with that said I reckon it’s time
for me to be searching for that not
so elusive off switch, but not before I
wish you a most wonderful weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a blessings
filled week. Remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. Now, where’s
that off switch hiding this week????
Oh for the love of ice cream, could
you at least put a little bit of effort
in your hiding places LOL. Trying to
hide behind Rocky will never work
being he never stops moving hehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Tomorrow (August 31) is my birthday
Hello no friend of mine,
you have turned me 59! LOL.
Turned, sounds like I went bad huh :)

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22+1 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

Right Now And Beyond

With minutes and hours
are moments to find
right now and beyond
found on our mind.
Often our thinking will
be found obscured
throughout a turnstile
of word after word.
Right now and beyond
can be clearly seen
sometimes as portions
of a nightmare or dream.
Using all the passed days
and those then to come
the best that we can then
will shine a great sun.
For not procrastinating
and doing what we can
right now and beyond
will help us to stand.

Devices Of Style

Thinking they’re better
so many perceive
that they are blessed with
times to achieve.
Through their devices
of style so to say
many will carry on
in their thinking way.
The style of life
with many devices
leads ones astray
with overpaid prices.
Often ones wantings
are just but a show
the devices of style
to fill their ego.
Don’t let your wantings
to become so large
that devices of style
are fully in charge.

An Angel’s Wings

Someone you see
might have in place
an angel’s wings
upon their face.
Their love and joy
will seem to shine
as the Heavens
great design.
An angel’s wings
might not be seen
as they’re here
with God’s esteem.
Those as angels
might appear
as they’re just
someone sincere.
Maybe even
a homeless man
with angels wings
and wondrous plan.
So the story’s
plain to see
an angel could be
you or me.
Unknowingly shining
what God agleams
some are with
an angel’s wings.

A Santafied Dream

A sweet winters morning
awoken from sleep
is filled with the wonders
that ones wish to keep.
A Santafied dream
from deep in the night
displaying magic
of Santa in flight.
A Santafied dream
of a white snowy place
painted with wonders
upon a child’s face.
This was a magical
time I remember
a Santafied dream
amidst cold December.
So very long ago
as I fell fast asleep
a Santafied dream
displayed oh so deep.
A minute a moment
of sweet starry skies
a Santafied dream
came alive in my eyes.
Yet now much older
I still can recall
a Santafied dream
the best over all.

Within The Looking Stone

On a deep river’s bottom
holds such a stone.
One that’s all shiny
and sat all alone.
It holds great mysteries
deep in its mold
making some stories
to now be foretold.
Within the looking stone
time has stood still
as it fills pages
of words to fulfill.
It has such a shimmer
that only few see,
for it is well hidden
in a river so free.
It displays times
that it has gone through
with chips here and there
that make greater its view.
The words are well written
in oh such a tone
that only a few see it
within the looking stone.

Limits Of Self

Found in a hurry
ones worry so much
about this and that
a bit out of touch.
The limits of self
are often not seen,
for oh so many
just live in a dream.
Then with a crashing
comes reality
the limits of self
for them then to see.
Don’t get discouraged,
because we all do
have many limits
that pattern our view.
Life is a journey
filled with desire
that limits of self
will find a flat tire.
Let lose your sadness
and be glad to be
the person you are
which is you and me.
The limits of self
can become good tools
learning what’s best
and not being fools.
For wantings desires
can lie on your shelf
giving you sadness
with limits of self.

While Looking On

Lost in perception
dusk unto dawn
we miss moments
while looking on.
Time becomes echoes
we’ve yet to see
while looking on
at our history.
Portions of mornings
are just a sight
that ones mistaken
for later of night.
Time finds seconds
that went too fast
while looking on
at shadows we cast.
Don’t let today
to just fly by
while looking on
not giving a try.

Dismantled Doorways

Temporal pathways
come to conclusions
dismantled doorways
to our illusions.
So many doorways
swing and then sway
as they are opened
day after day.
Discerning pathways
temporal places
might become found
as untied shoe laces.
Causing us stumbles
tripped up to find
dismantled doorways
time after time.
It’s with our mindset
we often find grays
within the time frames
dismantled doorways.

Looking Smart

Ones with clothes
of higher pay
might be liars
their display.
Not so true
that they impart,
for they’re only
looking smart.
Leaves on trees
of brown and green
do not bestow
the truth that’s seen.
Many will not
be what you think,
for they really
truly stink.
Looking smart
is best to be
the way you are
for ones to see.
Don’t disguise
what’s found inside
for truth shows
what you can’t hide.
Let your life
show from your heart
and not just be then
looking smart.

August Dreams

Heat of summer
comes so strong
while ones wish it
to be gone.
August dreams
lie wide awake
with ones sweating
no mistake.
The month shows
how many sweat
with the rains
that get you wet.
The humidity
comes in stride,
August dreams
that coincide.
Seasons journey
takes a step
that so many
won’t forget.
August dreams
soon find a while
within the end
a wondrous smile.
September comes
a cooler time
as August dreams
are still in mind.
All of those dreams
become a place
an August time
with smiling face.
For remembered
the beginning
with sun tanning
and ones swimming.
August dreams
of wondrous ways
then are as
the greater days.

for Aug 29, 2015

Decembers window
will become clearer to see
as minutes tick on.

Life is a journey
that many will mistaken
and head the wrong way.

The winds of August
blow in a few surprises
we’re not prepared for.

Turbines on hilltops
turn with incoming breezes
to generate life.

Found on a photo
might be a few memories
that you’ve forgotten.

Heaven awaits us
with friends that have gone before,
so have faith in God.

Looking for seconds
in an hour of minutes
might become endless.

Shadows of our lives
exist in the things we’ve done,
so watch where you step.

Hinging your thinking
on some thoughts that are rusted
might just make some noise.

Lasting impressions
come often from a moment
that did not go well.

A persons wardrobe
does not testify their thoughts,
because they’re not them.

Ones unresponsive
might just be ignoring you
as they do their thing.

The doorknobs on doors
make it able to enter,
only if not locked.

Lusting for someone
can become mere destruction
as it drains you heart.

Life in general
holds so many perceptions
that we stay confused.

In a field of dreams
you might find a mystery
that creates a smile.

True loving heartbeats
will grow much stronger in time
as God intended.

Deciphering thoughts
will often lead you astray
with the wrong answers.

Holding too tightly
to someone you’re in love with
could push them away.

Within a hard life
there are lessons to be learned,
so pay attention.

Perfection is God
and we’re perfect in His Eyes
with imperfections.

A heart keeps beating
even if you can’t hear it,
for Heaven is life.

Long and winding roads
often seem to go nowhere,
but it is somewhere.

Some Old Pictures


Hello my friends

It’s been a warm week this passed few days,
but it’s supposed to stay in the 70’s for the next
week or so.  The temperature should drop to
the 60’s after that.  September is the beginning
of Autumn and up here it’s felt and seen in the
early part of September.  We’ve changed up
our tactics on potty training Rocky being that
he still hasn’t caught on.  So we’re putting him
in his crate at night and then letting him out
in the morning to go potty,  OUTSIDE.  We
are hoping that this works.  He’s beginning to
get on our nerves.  Even Judy’s fed up with
it LOL.  Hopefully this new tactic will work :)
He bickered a little bit when I put him in his
crate,  but he soon quit and accepted it and
went to sleep.  I let him out this morning.  he
wasn’t whining or anything and he was calm
when he got out of his crate.  I said,  come on
now,  it’s time for you and Benny to go outside
and they both followed me to the door and
went out without any fuss.  Right now Rocky
is wanting to play and he keeps jumping up
on my arm rest nudging me hehehe.  OK so
I stopped to pick him up and let him sit in my
lap for a while.  Now,  it’s time to get back to
writing,  which might be hard to do being that
Rocky is right behind me playing with his toys
that squeaky squeak LOL.  They are both in
a cantankerous playful mood hehehe.  I saw
that they had left the room and gone in our
bedroom and I went to see what they were
up to and Benny was in Rocky’s crate with
Rocky on the outside sort saying in his own
way,  hey bro,  that’s mine LOL.  Benny got
out and both of them began jumping up and
down wanting me to play with them.  They’re
getting along like brothers now.  That’s one
of the things we were hoping for.  Now if
we could just get Rocky completely potty
trained,  that would be MARVELOUS LOL.
He does though still chew on stuff,  but I’m
sure that soon he will grow out of that.  We
have tried all of the stuff that’s supposed to
deter dogs from chewing,  but it didn’t even
work on Benny hehehe.  He would just lick
it off and keep on chewing on it LOL.  So,
we’re fairly sure it won’t work on Rocky.
The weather has been a bit rainy for the
passed few days and it looks like it will
continue as such for most of the week and
maybe into the next.  I wish we could send
some rain to California and thereabouts.
They are still needing rain and with all of
the fires,  I’m sure they need it even more.
All I can send is my prayers.  I’m fixing to
stop here and start cleaning out our spare
room to get ready to haul some stuff to
storage.  I’ll be right back.  OK,  I’m back.
We hauled most of the junk to a dumpster
that Judy’s sister rented and we carried
a lot of our stuff to storage that we will
not use this year.  Making room for my
daughter Jamye and granddaughter Sami.
Jamye’s boyfriend Brian and his little boy
will be coming with them.  So we needed
our spare room cleaned out.  We have a
futon in it and we have 2 recliners in the
living room.  Hopefully my granddaughter
doesn’t have a relapse of her health issues
and make it to where she can’t come. She
has had a rough time sense she was born.
Sami has Spina Bifida.  It will be great
to see them at Christmastime.  They have
never seen a White Christmas as we see
every year.  LOL hopefully this isn’t the
year that the weather does a flip flop
and doesn’t snow.  That would be bad.
Yet so far,  the forecast has been for
a more than normal winter with more
snow,  so I don’t foresee a problem for
Christmas snow.  Now onto another
topic.  Today’s high is supposed to be
78 F degrees and right now at 4:30 it’s
77 F degrees.  Tomorrow the high is
supposed to be 75 F.  Just right!  Not
too warm and not too cold.  Of course
I would prefer it a little cooler being
that I’m hot natured :)  I have been
sweating like an ape in a sauna LOL.
My daughter used to say that my arms
were long and hairy enough to belong
to an ape and I would say Hahaha you
are too Funny LOL.  That was back
when she was just a little girl and I
took her to the zoo.  We passed by
the apes and she looked at me and
said related?  I said remember you
and I are related hehehe.  Nothing
more about that LOL.  I do wish we
could of spent more time together,
but too many people came between us.
Thank God we have today.  Ok,  so
next topic.  Judy is over on her PC
scanning some old pictures that she
found onto her computer.  I wish
I had more pictures than I do of my
past.  I have just a few being I did
not own a camera much of my life
and the old cameras would never
guaranty that the pictures that you
took were going to actually come
out well.  Many times I would have
more bad photos than good ones and
that was aggravating,  being they
were of times that will never be seen
again.  I guess that’s why I take so
many pictures today.  I want to have
as many pictures as I can to reflect
upon.  So many memories were lost
in the negatives of film that did not
develop well.  So that explains why
I take so many pictures LOL.  Plus
I just seem to find so much to take
a picture of that I often cannot stop
snapping that darn button hehehe.
I didn’t get my new old camera till
Tuesday of last week,  so I haven’t
taken as many pictures as I usually
do,  but you just wait LOL.  I thank
God every day for the blessings that
I receive,  even the ones I haven’t any
knowledge of.  Yes I get irritated at
things when they don’t go my way,
but that’s my humanity that still tries
to run me ragged.  God is always in
control whether we think so or not.
Ones will live and ones will die with
His will set in motion for reasons that
we might never comprehend.  Don’t
let yourself fall prey to Satan’s lies,
for he will try to deceive you into
thinking God doesn’t care.  Have
faith in God and trust that all will be
well.  Maybe not here on Earth,  but
in Heaven made anew.  Now I believe
it’s time for me to  take my little trip
back through all that I’ve written here
to see if I can find a word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s
brand new poem.  And away we go :)
Scanning searching scanning searching.
Aha,  found one just a little ways back
through my journal.  So now to check
to see if I have used it yet.  Nope,  so
it’s away we go.  Zooooooooooooom.

Some Old Pictures

Those days back so youthful
I still have a glance
some old pictures found then
of my song and dance.
Seasons have passed by
with times wished recorded,
but back in the old days
a camera was not afforded.
I have a few cassette tapes
that I listen to
of those times I wish that I
had pictures to view.
Yet still some old pictures
find me and others
standing with old friends,
sisters and brothers.
So now today I am with
camera at hand
to take some old pictures
for future so grand.

There ya go :)  I hope you liked the poem.
I got the idea from watching Judy over
there scanning pictures hehehe.  The boys
are sleeping in the floor between Judy and
I.  This is the coolest part of the house with
the dehumidifier fan running.  It takes the
humidity and cools the air.  It’s our little
portable air conditioner and that is one of
the settings on it aside from the plain old
fan mode.  Soon we will be closing the
windows and turning on the heat,  but not
for a while yet.  It will have to get down
below 40 degrees F before we will think
about turning on the heat.  Hopefully by
that time we can afford to buy some more
heating oil.  We still have a little,  but not
enough to last but only a few days.  We
do have our radiator heaters throughout
the house that we use more often,  but
we need the heating furnace to keep our
pipes from freezing.  It does get rather
cold up here ya know LOL.  Oh yea,
an update on Judy’s brother Ricky.  He
is back in the nursing home and doing
fairly well.  He has made a few friends
in the nursing home and that’s great.
He didn’t have any friends before that.
He stayed pretty much to himself.  I’ll
put one of his pictures in the stationery.
Judy brought him a doughnut from the
nearby Dunkin’ Doughnuts hehehehehe.
That made him happy.  Anyways,  that’s
about all I have.  Now it’s time for me
to be telling you what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  10 more poems
with one being sort of Christmassy :)
Also I once again wrote 22 haiku for
all of the haiku lovers out there.  I do
hope that you can find 1 or 2 of either
or both that you like.  Now it’s time
for me to begin my little quest for
that not so elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend and a blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  OK,  where are ya hiding
this time ya silly thing?  LOL hiding
under my Advair near my respirator
ain’t quite the best place being that
you’re not that small and you’re sort
of making it wobble a little bit hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

The Waiting Game

Ticking time bombs
that explode
the waiting game
on down the road.
With every second
so many count
the waiting game
time frames surmount.
Scenes then pass by
to attain
times exposing
the waiting game.
Minutes add up
so to say
the waiting game
of yesterday.
Every moment
gathers dust
the waiting game
times to adjust.

Linked As One

Hands held together
will surely expose
many with heartbeats
that do not oppose.
Linked as one
so many will find
they are much stronger
than one at a time.
So as our journeys
are found to bestow
look for some others
that go where you go.
Don’t become lonely
with no one to care,
for you and another
are driven with prayer.
Let God to join you
through Jesus His Son
and then become stronger
while linked as one.

Becoming Better

Learning from mishaps,
learning from pain
becoming better
give times to attain.
Living as plumage
to fly as a bird
often our pathways
are found so absurd.
Roadblocks of problems
might teach us so well
becoming better
for us to foretell.
For as remembered
things become clear
becoming better
what’s learned yesteryear.
Found as our troubles
lessons are learned
becoming better
what we have discerned.

A Road Sign

Markers for people
a pathway to find
that is well noted
within a road sign.
For without markings
of which way to go
so many people
will just miss the road.
It takes a road sign
to show ones for sure
where they are headed
within the contour.
For without road signs
ones might just get lost
headed to nowhere
with time frames of cost.
So seek a road sign
that heads the right way
and you won’t end up
real lost turning gray.

Summer’s Morn

Seasons are painted
with colors their own
as they are displayed
sometimes as windblown.
So with a camera
I head out to find
seasons to capture
in front and behind.
Morning brings pictures
alive so to say
painted as moments
of a bright summer’s day.
I snap real quickly
each image I see
so not to miss what’s
right there in front of me.
Time is the giver
of new photos born
found as the highlights
of each summer’s morn.

Recalling Winter

My thoughts of snowfall
with wintertime’s hue
brings me some joyful
when I’m feeling blue.
Recalling winter
helps me to remember
my favorite times
that are found in December.
Christmas with joyful
and songs that we sing
recalling winter
is a wonderful thing.
Each new snowflake
that falls from the sky
displays the beauty
with winters reply.
Recalling winter
helps summer to fade
like an ice cold glass of
strawberry limeade.

Long Winded People

Beneath ones talking
holds words that they say
sometimes so many
that others amscray.
Long winded people
will tend to say more
than they are needing
as ones slam the door.
Don’t be so wordy
with all that you know.
Learn to speak fluent
with shorter to flow.
Long winded people
will often be found
alone in the corner
with no one around.
Try and be wiser
in things that you say
and don’t be long winded
to make others pay.

One Time Thing

Looking back
seen through my eyes
a one time thing
was my surprise.
Times connected
there and then
a one time thing
of where I’d been.
Making music
on the beach
summers blessings
one time each.
A 4 man band
as each day flows
guitars strumming
and bongos.
A one time thing
we used to play
long ago
on summers day.
Then as shadows
they were gone
a one time thing
another dawn.
My remembrance
comes so clear
of that time frames
A one time thing
of style and grace
now lives on
another place.
As just memories
found inside
a one time thing
my thoughts reside.

God Will Surprise

Life as a sinner
will often run dry
leaving you empty
in your by and by.
Often our journeys
will lead us to find
lessons to learn
with a new frame of mind.
So many people
will just look away
and not want to find out
what God has to say.
Yet God will so often
show them oh so true
the sight of their choices
that need made anew.
Then as if magic
Lord God will surprise
and find someone Hell bent
and open their eyes.

Love Remains

We might have some problems,
but we still hold true,
for you still really love me
and I really love you.
As each day brings struggles
we each time will grow
stronger together
with each high and low.
Surely Lord Jesus
is here as our guide
as we’re together
with Him found inside.
Time becomes endless
as echoes roll on
found within moments
of dusk unto dawn.
Windows of mercy
are as Heavens grains
found in our heartbeats
as love remains.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

for Aug 22,  2015

Mysteries of life
come as doorways with some dreams
and a few nightmares.

The size of ones smile
does not always tell the truth,
for it could be false.

Leftover fractions
might end up being wasted
due to the moment.

Counting the leaves
could find you in an abyss
as the wind will blow.

When wanting first place
it could show you deception
of what first place is.

A bird flapping wings
can maneuver through the skies.
It was born for flight.

Seasonal footprints
are found in many places,
but not understood.

Annoying people
often have not any clue
of their annoyance.

Describing yourself
might seem unnecessary
when you think you’re clear.

Life on some paper
has only words to be read,
but truth has actions.

A misty morning
displays clouds hiding sunshine
with hope it will pass.

Beyond emotions
holds the key points of heartbeats
found as expression.

Sights seen in the skies
find many wondering what
or who that it is.

The smile of a dog
can bring you out of sadness
and show you true joy.

Each days arrival
gives way for a brand new sight
to search and to find.

Allowing sadness
to always be within you
gives no room for smiles.

The life of a clown
might hide a frown within it
hidden with a smile.

One that’s a bully
will often be insecure
fearing of others.

The summer grass grows
to only drive ones insane
as they mow it down.

Footsteps in the snow
might look larger than they are
due to perception.

Staring at the sun
can find you nothing to see
as you’ll lose your sight.

The twinkling essence
of the stars deep in the night
make many dreams.

It Will Hold Together


Hello my friends

It seems that summer wasn’t quite through with
us being that we’ve had a number of 80 F degree
days this passed week and it looks like we might
get a few more this week before moving back to
the 70 F degree range and below.  Our nights
have been in the 60’s,   but even that should get
back to normal by the end of the week.  It did
the same thing last year or at least I think it did
as my memory sort of recalls LOL.  I’m not sure
beyond that.  This winter is supposed to be a
bad one,  but we shall see.  What some call bad,
I call pretty,  but on the worse days,  tolerable.
I would be dying if I were in Texas.  My body
can’t handle the heat.  I am very hot natured.
Yes,  I do get cold,  but not quite as often as
Judy does.  I most times have to sleep on top
of the covers.  Anyways,  onwards with the
journal.  Benny and Rocky are getting along
great.  Rocky has finally caught on to the fact
that he is to do his pottying outside,  but he
still often gets into our clothes and chews on
things.  The lady gave us a random birthday
and both Judy and I know for a fact that he is
not no 3 years old LOL.  More like 9 months
to a year or so.  So we have made his birthday
the same day that we picked him up from the
airport which was Benny’s birthday which is
July 16, 2011,  but made Rocky’s birthday
date more like 2014 hehehe.  So we will be
celebrating their birthdays together.  Milo’s
birthday was Oct 31,  2004 (a Halloween pup).
Rocky still has his baby teeth and is always
chewing on something and that includes my
fingers at times hehehe.  He’ll grow out of it,
maybe hehehe.  Benny still loves to play and
chew on my fingers which does get him a
scolding from time to time.  Yes,  we scold
Rocky too about it.  So far Rocky’s chewing
doesn’t hurt,  but Benny has all of his teeth.
They are growing to be closer as each day
comes to pass.  Seeing them playing chase
through the house makes us smile.  Rocky
will even go outside to potty without me
having to literally carry him outside and
put him at the bottom of the steps.  That’s
a blessing,  being that was getting old LOL.
We’ve got our portable AC running in here
in the PC room.  That thing was one of the
best things I ever bought aside from our
radiator heaters for winter :)  Right now
it’s 84 F degrees at 2:30 PM.  Yeppers it’s
a tad warm for up here,  but it will pass in
time.  Next topic.  The camera I ordered
was supposed to be here last Friday,  but
it’s been rescheduled for Monday July
17th so I should get it tomorrow.  It’s the
same make and model of the camera I
have now,  but hopefully in better shape :)
They said it was in very good condition,
so if not,  I’ll return it,  but I think it will
be as noted.  Their sales record is very
good with 5 stars.  I’m getting tired of
having to keep retaping my camera so
it will hold together hehehe.  I might in
the future figure out a way to fix it,  but
it would be nice to have the new old one
so I don’t have to mess with it.  It takes a
long time to retrieve pictures through a
USB cable directly from the camera and
that’s how I am having to do it now.  I’ll
keep it for a back up,  but I’m fairly sure
that the tape will not hold in our subzero
temperatures hehehe.  OK,  so what else
is their to ramble about.  Oh yea,  Judy’s
brother Ricky is having his leg below his
knee amputated Monday.  Judy is driving
down to be with him and stay and come
back Tuesday.  She has already got her
a motel room booked to stay in that is
near the hospital.  Lewiston is a 4 hour
drive south of us.  Please keep Judy in
your prayers as she makes the journey.
I’ll have to stay here and take care of
the boys.  Last week when she went she
called when she got there and when she
was headed home so I would know she
was OK.  I understand more and more
as time goes by why my mom and dad
always had me call when I got to where
I was going and then when I was headed
back home.  The unforeseen things will
happen that we’re not prepared for at
times and it’s good to know that after
a bit,  someone will be looking for you
if you do not call or don’t show up at
the time you should be arriving.  I’ve
learned many lessons as I’ve gotten
older.  Some of them were through my
stubbornness.  Yes I still find myself in
stubborn ville,  but not as often as I was
visiting it in my youth.  We all have our
moments of stubbornness that we want
what we want and want it now.  It might
not display in a great scale in your life,
but there are still places,  times or things
that we wish would hurry up and get here.
Life has a funny way of not handing out
all that we want and no not in a funny
HaHa sense,  but yet in a not so HaHa
sense.  Life is a mystery no matter how
much you think you know.  The skies
will often rain even if the weatherman
says it’s not in the forecast.  Yep,  rain
clouds have a way of just showing up at
their own discretion.  We will often get
snow when it’s nowhere in the forecast.
That’s why it’s always best for us to be
prepared.  I know we can’t prepare for
everything,  but we can prepare for most.
Firstly,  prepare your soul for Heaven,
by taking Jesus as your Savior and not
losing yourself in the sins of life.  Yes,
we all sin on a day to day basis,  but
having Jesus as your Lord and Savior
gives way for forgiveness.  To be human
is to be a sinner.  It’s in our blood,  but
we can let God work through us to try
and change our lives as best that we
can.  I have tons of backwash in my
life that I have given to God.  I know I
cannot go back and change it,  so I give
it to Christ to forgive me.  Let God show
you a brand new life through His Son
Jesus Christ.  Learn to let things go if
you see that you’re just hanging on to
baggage.  I’ve had some laughable stuff
to find its way into my life and that’s the
part that I hang onto as memories that
I use to cheer myself up when I’m sad.
The harder times I remember so as to
remind myself that things can always
get worse,  but I will be OK,  because
I have Jesus in my life.  I stared death
in the eyes and survived a number of
times and that just strengthened my
faith in Jesus.  Our lives are numbered
as many come and go at their own time
of which we might think too early.  But
the fact is,  it’s always the right timing
for God knows what’s best.  Learn how
to live today and not stay in depression
for what we cannot change.  Learn from
the past and find the joy in the future.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin
my little quest back through all that I’ve
written 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 little place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a decent title
near the middle of my rambling and now
after checking I see that I have not used
it yet,  so AWAY WE GO.

It Will Hold Together

Lives of destruction
with a definite face
can hold together
through Jesus Christ Grace.
Sometimes a turnstile
that we had mistaken
finds us with problems
of futures partaken.
You can find blessings then
from God forever
and your life structured
it will hold together.
Taped up with passion
and love oh so fine
it will hold together
through Jesus Divine.
Our seasons troubles
might seem to explode
and then return with
times down the road.
Yet with God’s mercy
your heart will show true.
It will hold together
with Jesus Christ glue.

There ya go hehehe.  I hope that was good
enough for ya.  I hope my rambling didn’t
put you to sleep.  So,  what else do I need to
tell ya?  Once again,  please keep Judy in
your prayers and definitely keep Ricky in
your prayers.  Judy’s brother is facing his
amputation tomorrow (Monday) and we
are not sure about his faith in God.  He’s
a good man,  but we are not sure if God
is a part of his life.  Please pray that his
eyes are opened and the surgery goes well.
OK,  so what else is there to tell ya?  Hmm,
it looks like I have run out of my thoughts
and so it is time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems with 1 of them being
sort of Christmassy.  Also I once again
wrote 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 be searching
for that not so elusive off switch,  but
not before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend and a blessings filled week.
OK,   where the dickens are ya you lil
whippersnapper?  I see ya hiding over
there in front of the Air conditioner :)
I guess hiding wasn’t as important as
staying cool today huh hehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe :)

Waves Of Thoughts

Beneath the oceans
waves of thoughts
life is flowing
twist and toss.
Scenes are changing
time begins
waves of thoughts
with raging winds.
A ship found sailing
there and to
might be homebound
ocean blue.
Waves of thoughts
are found begun
beneath the starlight
and the sun.
Each scene blessed with
sights to see
waves of thoughts
with history.

Troubles Come

Life goes on
as times consume
things we think of
then and soon.
Troubles come
and doors are found
leaving footsteps
on the ground.
Lessons come from
troubled times
learning from the
bad designs.
Many times
we’ve no control
troubles come
to take their toll.
God gives blessings
time agin.
Troubles come
from mortal sin.
So many doorways
open wide,
troubles come
to take a ride.
Use those moments
strengthen your mind
when troubles come
the blessings you’ll find.
After the troubles
you might see
all of the lessons
in history.

Within A Storm

Lightning streaking
across the sky
gives out volume
thunders cry.
Sounds found roaring
loud to hear
within a storm
it will appear.
Captured seconds
the lightning is
something to see.
Thunder roaring
loud with gain
gives a bellow
to attain.
Within a storm
is hopes design
found with raindrops
time to time.
The clouds of white
might turn real dark
and then appear
to growl and bark.
Within a storm
time might display
a distant rainbow’s
wondrous way.
The clouds might leave
to later form
lighting and thunder
within a storm.

Winter’s Dream

Summertime’s painting
is left with a gaze
filled with the brushstrokes
of many displays.
Painted with colors
of blue skies and more
seeking for winter’s
dream to adore.
Winter’s perception
is that of snow white
often with colors
of Christmas delight.
Time becomes countless
with minutes to spare
bringing in winter’s
on special flair.
Christmastimes beauty
within winter’s dream
becomes an echo
of red,  blue and green.
Those Christmas colors
that are found in the night
as winter’s dream
of a wonderful sight.

His Love Is The Greatest

No matter our structure,
no matter our mind
God loves us greatest
through all of mankind.
He sent us His Son
to show us the way
and help us when weakened
with our day to day.
His love is the greatest,
for He truly cares
as He gives us hopeful
through all of our prayers.
No matter our color,
no matter our voice,
Lord God still loves us
with every bad choice.
His love is the greatest
for Jesus bestows
His strength to guide us
through our highs and lows.
Don’t let a moment
to steal away your heart
for this too shall pass on
as time frames depart.
His love is the greatest
and always shall be
there through Lord Jesus
to give love for free.

Lost One Of Heartaches

When in a whirlwind
you might not see
all that’s around you
and given for free.
Life could be awesome
if only you’d find
peace within Jesus
and your own design.
Often our troubles
are out of our hand
so we need Jesus
to help us withstand.
A lost one of heartaches
might only find Hell
left within turnstiles
of times not so well.
Don’t let your problems
to drive you insane.
Let God to guide you
through better to gain.
A lost one of heartaches
can learn how to fly
as they’re with Lord God
in Heaven on High.
He’ll take those problems
and show how so true
a lost one of heartaches
can be made anew.

The Scent Of Winter

With autumns windows
comes colors divine
found as the makeup of
flavors to dine.
Tasty looking morsels
of colors so sweet
display their banquet
for snow to defeat.
The scent of winter
then comes rushing through
with the aroma of
white snow so true.
The feast is enlightened
for wintertime’s days
scented with blessings
in so many ways.
The snowflakes start falling
and painting the sky
with every morsel
just learning to fly.
The scent of winter
is brought forth from fall
as autumns colors
are not seen at all.
The white snow envelops
the colors before
as the scent of winter
is there to adore.

The Moon’s Big Smile

Some people say
that the man in the moon
lives there so brilliant
for true love to swoon.
Some people say
that the moons big smile
can bring us passion
in just but a while.
Some people say
that the guy that they see
is a moon man of time
with smiles given free.
Some people say
that big thing that glows
can then when it’s looked at
end all our woes.
I think the moon
holds many mysteries
as it will cause
the swelling of seas.
I think the moon
is much more than just round.
It gives reflections
right here on the ground.
I think the moon
is much more to compile
than just a segment of
the moon’s big smile.

Breezes Of Summer

Deepness of summer
is found sort of warm
with breezes blowing
to give us its charm.
Breezes of summer
are found in the sky
as fluffy clouds come
passing us by.
Summer’s on moments
will come and then go
leaving for autumn
and winters white snow.
Time becomes pathways
driven to be
breezes of summer
and so much to see.
Sometimes a rain cloud
will leave its trail
breezes of summer
then are set sail.
Found in the echoes
of time come before
breezes of summer
display so much more.
Heartbeats of sunshine
with many a plan
breezes of summer
to seek for a tan.
Summer shows portholes
of time moving on
breezes found blowing
to find a new dawn.

Desert Realms

A dusty trail
of thoughts galore
is desert realms
of times before.
Lost with footsteps
counted true
are desert realms
with hope so few.
Too much baggage

Find the answers
and then learn
to leave the desert
to discern.
Lessons thrive
in desert realms
when you let God
take the helms.

A glancing moment
might display the wrong viewpoint
for others to see.

Knowing ones lifestyle
might not prove that you know them,
for reasons evade.

A cameras view
does not always catch it all,
for our eyes see more.

Tree leaves of summer
sing their songs with the breezes
as sweet melodies.

Searching for some peace
might be better found within
as you kneel in prayer.

Life has many paths
with turnstiles to enter in
or to walk away.

Beneath a large tree
there might be a smaller tree
needing some sunlight.

The moonlight of night
brings forth many sights to see
with the stars above.

Life can seem hurried,
but often it’s our actions
that need slowing down.

Appointments in time
might need to be rescheduled
due to importance.

Following a bird
in its flight through the night skies
might need some talent.

Sometimes our windows
might need a little cleaning
so we can see clear.

A persons heartbeat
might be hidden from others
and no one know it.

Signs of a liar
are displayed in their actions
that are not normal.

Halfhearted people
will often become disease
that infects you too.

Looking for starlight
finds many staring upwards
searching through the skies.

Life has a doorway
that needs to be opened up
to allow true love.

The needs of others
might seem very tedious,
but to them they’re great.

Life in the fast lane
could cause you to crash your mind
and end in despair.

Someone’s deception
might end up as crying wolf
and no one to come.

As summer finds end
it leaves a trail of sunshine
to lead to autumn.

Painting with photos
needs one to look all around
and see the unseen.

Falling Off


Hello my friends

Yet another week has gone by and the
weather has not been too bad.  It’s been
in the 70’s most of time with a few days
in the upper 60’s and no not Celsius :)
That would be rather freaking hot if it
were Celsius.  Judy and I are doing OK.
Rocky has just about drove us bonkers
though hehehe.  He has gone 3 days now
without making potty in the house aside
from yesterday evening when Judy got
home from her sisters house and Rocky
got all excited and jumped up on our
bed and peed.  On Judy’s side of the bed
yet LOL.  I just wish he would quit with
the getting into our clothes.  I am tired
of folding my clothes and putting them
away with him coming up right behind
me climbing up to pull them down.  He
has been doing the same with Judy’s
clothes.  I am hoping that he learns to
not do that soon.  I don’t like having to
spank him.  If he could understand the
English language,  it might be a little
easier LOL.   Oh well,  he’s just a pup
and learning gradually.  Judy’s brother
Ricky is not doing well at all health wise.
Please keep him in your prayers.  OK so
what else is going on around this nut
house :) ?  Well,  the vet that we took
Milo to that also put him to sleep and
cremated him,  sent us a sympathy card
the other day.  The Vet wrote a sweet
note and signed it and the office also
signed it.  They could tell how much
Milo meant to us and for that matter
still does.  He will always be a part of
our family.  Rocky has brought us much
joy and as he learns more and more of
what he’s not supposed to do,  he will
bring us even more joy hehehe.  It’s so
nice seeing him and Benny playing and
having fun.  Rocky simply loves to play
with the doggy toys.  We have tons of
them LOL. 2 toy boxes full of them :)
He tries to get them all out to play with
and our PC room tends to get a little
cluttered time to time the same as our
living room LOL,  but he is having fun
and they are just doggy toys and they
can be put away,  (to be dug out once
again not 10 minutes later) LOL.  Yep
he loves the toys.  Benny likes the toys,
but he was never so caught up with
them as much as Rocky.  Milo had a
few that were his favorites,  such as
Lamb Chop and the blue octopus :)
Of course we have multiple of them
both,  but he had his chosen favorites.
When Milo came inside,  he would
snatch up Lamb Chop and make a
dash through the kitchen to the PC
room LOL.  The PC room is where
I am now,  our computer room LOL,
so get your head out of the gutter :)
Yep,  it’s nice having the sound of
little feet running through our house.
The boys will often play chase back
and forth from the living room to
the PC room.  OK,  so what else is
going on around the Pearce’s Place?
Well it looks like we might get some
rain beginning Tuesday Evening,
but who knows for sure?  It could all
change at the drop of a hat,  but who’s
gonna drop the hat and what kind of
hat will it be?  Will it be a cowboy
,Tryolean,  Fedora,  Bowler,  Boater,
Panama,  Homburg,  Porkpie,  Stingy
Brim,  Baseball,  Tophat,  Straw or
Campaign Hat?  Hehehe I be silly :)
But,  you’ve gotta admit,  the weather
has a mind of its own and only God
truly knows what it will be.  I follow
it on my PC weather radar programs,
but even that does not always hold so
true,  because it has a weird way of
changing its mind.  Oh yea,  a Derby
and a Bowler hat are the same thing.
LOL Just saying!  There are many
more different styles of hats,  being I
mostly only mentioned the men’s hats.
Some of them are ones that women
have been seen wearing also.  LOL,
I guess this is the trivial part of my
journal,  not that anything else that
I write isn’t trivial hehehe.  I haven’t
done much picture taking lately being
my camera keeps falling apart and
the one that I ordered the first of the
month never got shipped and Amazon
refunded my money.  I went yesterday
and reordered from another vender
through Amazon for a better price :)
and they are supposed to ship it by
Tuesday.  So,  hopefully I will have
it before the week is out.  My camera
is literally falling apart hehehehehe.
It’s held together with masking tape.
Judy bought it for me back in 2004
and it has served me well,  so I went
and found the very same camera on
Amazon and bought it.  It’s still the
top of the line in my book.  If my card
and card cover would quit falling off
I wouldn’t have to buy another one,
but the SD card will not stay in the
slot and so the cover has been used
to keep it in and now it is broken and
keeps falling off leaving way for the
SD card to fall out.  The camera will
not work without the cover.  If it’s
not closed,  the camera will not come
on.  So,  you see my dilemma hehehe.
Anyways,  I am looking forwards to
getting my new old camera of the
same making,   but not broken LOL.
Right now it’s 69 F degrees at 2:04
in the afternoon.  Not too awful bad.
I did manage to take a few decent
pictures with my camera while trying
to keep my camera card in place :)
Judy also took a few good pictures.
I went over and took some pictures
of the Black-Eyed Susans (flowers)
and I got a few good pictures of the
clouds in the sky as well.  Yep.  my
camera still works good,  when it’s
not falling apart LOL.  I’ll keep it for
a back up.  Who knows,  I might be
able to one day find a way to fix it.
Next topic.  Hmm,  I cannot for the
life of me think of anything else to
tell you,  so I guess it’s time for me
head back through all that I have
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 found a decent title just a
little ways back and after checking
I see that I have not used it yet,  so
away we go :)

Falling Off

Hills of wonder
times we’ve seen
falling off
becomes a dream.
Floating swiftly
through the sky
hills of wonder
oh so high.
Wondrous moments
become found
falling off
to solid ground.
Blissful settings
dreams and more
falling off
begins to soar.
Heading up then
deep in space
with a peaceful
smiling face.
Then as ticking
time moves on
falling off then
sees new dawn.
While allowing
changes made
falling off
shows ones afraid.
Fear not changes
times accord
falling off
to climb aboard.
Seeing new days
come to be
falling off
might set you free.
So those anchors
in time slots
might need loosened
falling off.
For the new days
that are shown
might be blessings
Heaven grown.
Falling off of
morbid times
gives a way for
new designs.

OK,  so that might not of been one of my
better poems LOL.  It’s the words that
my fingers typed.  Most times I have no
clue of what I’ve written until I am done
and read back through it.  Some people
call it automatic writing/typing.  I hope
you enjoyed my rambling.  I know I tend
to go on and on about the boys hehehe.
That’s life at the Pearce’s place :)  LOL.
I had to take a potty break and when
I got out I saw Rocky lying on our bed
waiting for me to get out with his tail
wagging profusely hehehe.  Benny is
also now back in here.  Right now it’s
sort of cloudy outside,  but there’s no
rain in the forecast for today and we
needed a break.  Getting sort of water
logged if ya know what I mean LOL.
I did manage to finish weed eating
yesterday,  but now I’m aching more
than ever.  I kept hoping that our
landlord would make it over to do
it,  but I got sick and tired of all of
the freaking weeds around our house.
Rocky went outside with me and was
following me while watching me cut
the weeds.  Our weed eater isn’t a
big one.  It’s fairly light,  but it’s
also not good for the big weeds so,
I had to pull them and my hands
and all are sore as (well  you know).
I’ll survive as Lord God intends
for me to.  When my time is up,  it
will be up,  but until that day I’ll
continue trying to do the best that
I can to take care of my family.
We don’t have much money,  but
we do have tons of love and that
in my book is worth more than any
amount of gold or diamonds.  We
can see God’s Hands at work in
our lives as we watch these 2 boys
playing together with smiles on
their faces.  Judy and I have so
much to be thankful.  We’ve had
our share of struggles,  but all in
all we have been blessed.  So,  do
you know Jesus.  Do you love God?
Have you decided to let God to
help you with your life?  Life can
be so lonely without Him by your
side.  Why not make the decision
today to learn about The One that
breathed life into our hearts and
gave us His Son Jesus Christ to be
our guide.  With God,  all things are
possible.  Now I believe it’s time
for me to begin searching for that
not so elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wondrous
weekend and a blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now,  where is that
confounded off switch hiding this
time?  LOL,  you’ve gotta be nuts.
Hiding behind my hot cocoa cup
is not the greatest :) being I’m still
drinking it ya know hehehe.  Sip,
aah  good cocoa and there ya are :)
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe :)

Friday’s Dream

Times I’ve thought of
times I’ve seen
come to be with
Friday’s dream.
Scenes remembered
long ago
Friday’s dream
I used to know.
All those moments
found in time
now are only
dreams of mine.
Playing music
singing too
Friday’s dream
I used to do.
It was much more
than a dream
for those Fridays
times agleam.
Yet those moments
now are gone
but my Friday’s
dream lives on.

Trivial Thoughts

With but a moment
we can become lost
within a turnstile
of trivial thoughts.
Pages turned quickly
with lesser to learn
trivial thoughts
are what ones discern.
Not seeing clearly
the better to view
the trivial thoughts
can turn you askew.
Don’t let your mind to
only see gray
with trivial thoughts
from day to day.
Find the important
things to discover
lesser the trivial
better the other.
For the good moments
might pass you by
if trivial thoughts
are all you rely.

Open Canvas

Pictures taken
left and right
become open
canvas sight.
Scenes transfixing
that display
become paintings
in a way.
An open canvas
gives the room
for a journey
times attune.
A photograph
of what we saw,
open canvas
fills with awe.
With each brushstroke
that is made
the greater times
are then displayed.
An open canvas
blank at first
shows a picture
times emersed.
With each second
passing by
open canvas
gives a try.
As each moment
finds its place
open canvas
shines with grace.

An Earth Bound Star

A star that’s falling
gives a wish
times so hopeful
ones de-lish.
An Earth bound star
streaks through the sky
with ones asking
how and why.
The star falling
gives a glance
that of skylights
song and dance.
It paints pictures
we can see
an Earth bound star
of history.
It might burn up
in atmosphere
with no sign
it was ever here.
Yet the seer
of the sight
might remember
that delight.
Stars a twinkling
glimmers glow
with an Earth bound
star they know.

Night Sounds

The dark of night
gives way to things
night sounds with
something that sings.
Often echoes
heard so clear
are imagined
in our fear.
Beneath the stars
and moon so bright
night sounds find
a way to fright.
All those sounds
might really be
the same by day
of which we see.
Yet so often
time astounds
darkness fear
within night sounds.

A List Of Things

A page of words
and numbers too,
a list of things
comes into view.
Times remembered
done and said
a list of things
becomes our dread.
Turning minutes
into baggage
a list of things
the minutes ravage.
Let the list to
become lesser
not just lying
on your dresser.
Without holding
every minute
a list of things
has lesser in it.
Hold but only
what you need
a list of things
for futures seed.
Let God help you
find today
a list of things
much better way.

Aqua Heart

One with water
not of blood
bleeds without  a
beating thud.
An aqua heart
of one so cold
beats of water
times unfold.
Left from passed days
withered styles
an aqua heart
shows evil smiles.
Though the aqua
heart can find
a loving way
through good mankind.
Lessons learned
can fall apart
finding love from
aqua heart.
Then the blood red
beating true
can begin to
learn anew.
The aqua heart
can learn to love
finding God
from up above.
Seeing truly
what can be
beyond an aqua
heart of sea.
For the depths
of heart and soul
an aqua heart
can be made whole.

Lost In Perception

So many eyes
see only the black
lost in perception
a little off track.
Some people look
for only the wrong
and don’t see truly
what’s going on.
Lost in perception
causes our sight
to see only wrong ways
not seeing right.
Sometimes right now
is just but a phase
lost in perception
of certain ways.
Find so much better
with visual correction
and don’t be always
lost in perception.

Grains Of Earth

Distant melodies
come to sound
grains of Earth
upon the ground.
Every echo
heard in time
becomes someone’s
own design.
Grains of Earth
are put together
by Lord God
to be forever.
Yet they’re changing
to attain
timeless seen
with more to gain.
Each with doorways
found to show
grains of Earth
to surely grow.
Many questions
come to be
grains of Earth
to deep blue sea.

Sometimes life
that’s intermixed
can cause us to
then be transfixed.
Many scenes
can hold our sight
many days
and many nights.
Times remembered
long ago
can so often
end in woe.
To be transfixed
on yesterdays
might just find
an endless maze.
So let passed days
find their place
in their minutes
time and space.

for Aug 7,  2015

When without guidance
you might find yourself empty
headed the wrong way.

Mornings of sorrow
might conclude from some problems
you went to bed with.

Losing your footing
needs you to look more closely
where it is you step.

A little journey
can turn into a long trip
if you don’t prepare.

The clouds in the sky
might describe the days feelings
and just need to rain.

A green tree of life
holds the power of a breath
as it grows with time.

Short sighted people
only see what’s before them
and not what could be.

Left could be right ways
if it’s the right direction
and not in the wrong.

Pathways of heartbeats
might find quite a few speed bumps
to prove they are true.

As summer finds end
it gives way for some colors
found within autumn.

The future is made
as each day finds momentum
to be good or bad.

Many worriers
fail to see what’s possible
and only see now.

Shadows of nightfall
come as mysteries doorways
of dreams and much more.

The patterns we make
often reflect how we think
and others surmise.

The deep seas of time
display waves of emotions
created by God.

Seeing a picture
or hearing someone’s story
does not make it true.

Deception lives on
as many try to make facts
out of someone’s lies.

Gradient hillsides
can cause a climber to fall
if he is careless.

Pointless is anger
if it’s from the distant days,
for those days are gone.

Mesmerized turnstiles
can often draw you in them
if you’re not sober.

Angels of mercy
are sent down from God above
to help us withstand.

Having and holding
does not make things as your own,
for time takes its toll.

Surely Encounter


Hello my friends

It’s been a sort of warm week up this ways,  but
all in all not too bad.  Today’s high is supposed to
be 78 F degrees.  Right now it’s 76 F.  According
to my weather program,  after tomorrow it might
be cooling down a bit.  Tomorrow’s high shows
as to be 86 F,  but after that it’s supposed to be
77 F for Tuesday and the lower 70’s all the way
into next week LOL.  Yep,  this is Maine hehehe.
Benny and Rocky are doing well and are getting
along together fine.  They have started playing
together which is what we had hoped for aside
from Rocky learning to do all of his potty work
outside.  He is showing promise in that area :)
He’s had only one pooping accident since last
week.  Although,  he is still choosing to do it
on the top front steps LOL.  I’m sure in time he
will learn.  He’ll learn that he gets a spanking
if he poops on the steps,  but doesn’t if he poops
in the yard where he’s supposed to hehehehe.
He’s been good about not peeing on the floor
too.  He has only had a couple of accidents in
the last week.  Rocky is a pup in training.  We
went through a lot of that with Benny when we
got him.   Benny was about 8 months old when
we got him and he had been somewhat potty
trained,  but not for our house so we had to
re-teach him a tad.  Benny learned and so will
Rocky :)  Milo was an old boy and already
knew better than making potty in the house.
He would knock at the door with his paw to
let you know he needed to go out and if that
didn’t work,  he would start barking at us :)
He always got the message across hehehe.
So,  this house is once again teaming with
8 paws bouncing around the house.  Rocky
has learned how to get on the bed with us
just like Benny and of course Milo.  He’s
a lovable little guy.  We always do our best
to show them love equally,  because we love
them both.  They both love to play and to be
played with.  LOL right now they’re lying in
the floor head to head.  They’ve begun doing
that quite often here lately.  I got some cute
pictures of them watching me walk to check
the mail.  Judy stopped at the head of our
driveway and I got out as always and went
to check our mailbox and when I turned to
come back I saw both of their heads sticking
out of the window side by side watching me.
You can’t complain about that hehehehehe.
It rained a tad Friday evening and we got
a lot of wind along with a short 1 minute
power outage.  It also rained Thursday
night and we lost our Satellite TV signal
for about 45 minutes.  It looks like we’re
in for a little more rain this week.  That’s
OK by me,  but the boys don’t care for it
much LOL.  We might see wintertime a
little earlier this year.  Only God knows!
LOL I can’t wait to see Rocky’s reaction
to snow.  I’m fairly sure he’s never seen it.
When we got Benny,  there was already
some snow on the ground with more to
come hehehe.  Benny came to us from
Missouri,  so we’re fairly sure he had
seen snow before,  but Rocky came from
Florida,  the snowless state LOL.  Yep,
Rocky is in for a BIG SURPRISE this
winter.  Heck, he might surprise us and
love it as much as Benny,  but for some
reason I don’t think so.  He’s more like
Milo was.  He prefers to stay indoors,
but you never know hehehe.  Both him
and Benny have been getting use out of
the doghouse.  It has an upstairs balcony
that Benny loves to sit on,  but even he
has began crawling inside and enjoying
it.  I got a few pictures of Benny in the
doghouse with Rocky coming over to
sit with him on the outside.  We love to
watch them.  It’s 76 F degrees still at
3:40 PM.  Not too bad for summertime.
I feel bad for all those down south of us
in the 90-100+ temperatures.  Although
they will be saying almost the same thing
about us this coming winter hehehehehe.
Yep,  it’s with the changes that makes life
so magical.  If things never changed it
would get quite boring,  or at least to me
it would.  I like spring/summer,  but I
always yearn to see Fall and then the
first snowflake.  It gives us something
to look forward to.  God gives us many
changes so to keep us entertained in a
way.  It influences our thinking patterns
as we see things changing before us and
mysteries are uncovered to expose more
mysteries.  Look for the blessings in the
changes in your daily life.  If there are
no changes,  you might begin to turn
stagnate and depressed.  The joy of God
is all around us,  in heartbeats of little
ones to the smiles of ones that we meet.
Seek for the glimmer of a blessing in
your day to day life.  You might just be
surprised to find it where you never
thought to look,  INSIDE.  I often let
my mind drift off to think about the
good times I have seen and thank God
for them all.  I know there will be bad
times,  but that’s life.  Out tomorrow’s
are filled with good and bad that we
will most surely encounter.  Let God
be with you through them all.  The bad
will be more tolerable and the good will
be more pleasant.  I have my share of
bad days,  but I always know that this
too shall pass.  Life is a journey through
turnstiles of life with some seeming as
echoes,  because we may not of learned
from them when they came through the
first time or they’re times that we need
to enlighten us or make us smile.  Let
God travel with you through your daily
journeys and you will be blessed.  You
will still see bad times,  but you’ll have
strength through His Son Jesus Christ
to endure.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to be taking my little journey back
through 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 little place of my recollection that I
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE :)
I think I may have found a good title
just a little ways back in my rambling
and now after checking I see that I
have not used it yet,  So away we go.

Surely Encounter

Crossroads of timeless
meet crisscross of days
to surely encounter
some left and right ways.
Often the pitfalls
will seem way too deep,
but with God beside you
the holes will not keep.
Life can be burdensome
filled with despair
to surely encounter
some times unaware.
Left ways and right ways
can often seem bland
as ones will continue
to try hard to stand.
We’ll surely encounter
what’s thought as all wrong,
but find out much later
that it did belong.
Maybe a lesson learned,
maybe a tool
to help us to do things
taught from life’s school.
Some patterns might display
long and winding roads,
but you might then discover
some lessons in loads.
We’ll surely encounter
things thought not so fair,
but in the end my friend
we each have a prayer.

There ya go.  I hope the poem made sense
to ya.  Also I hope my rambling didn’t put
you to sleep hehehe.  I do tend to talk a lot
about the boys huh LOL.  You didn’t have
to read it ya know hehehe.  But,  if you did,
I hope it brought you a smile.  Judy is over
there writing on her book.  I’ve proof read
two chapters so far.  She sent me two more
chapters last night.  I’ll get started reading
over them later tonight or tomorrow.  So
far,  I have enjoyed what I’ve read.  She’s a
good writer.  I think I told ya once before,
but just in case,  she’s writing a sci-fi novel.
She has already written 2 books.  1 is a
poetry book and the other is about Benny
which is a children’s picture poetry book.
I’m very proud of her.  I would do a book,
but it would be a total stress on me to go
and find the poems to publish and then do
editing and reformatting and me with only
one good eye would become a lot of time
consumption with my right eye always
getting weak after an hour and having
to rest it.  Judy isn’t writing her books
to get rich,  but that would be nice LOL.
No,  she hasn’t made any money so far.
The sale of her books needs to be a lot
more than it is before she will see a check.
Maybe one day and maybe one day I will
make the decision to put in the time to
get some books published,  but not now.
For now,  you will have to read all my
ramblings in this hehehe.  OK,  so now
I think it’s time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems with one
of them being sort of 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.  Now I believe it’s time for me to
be searching for that not so elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend and a most
blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now,  where are
ya hiding this week ya silly varmint?
I see ya,  you’re trying a new hiding
spot huh!  Too bad it’s right there in
front of me hehehe.  Hiding behind
the air conditioner remote isn’t very
good.  The remotes only a quarter
of an inch thick,  so all I have to say
is Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe :)

My Monochrome Mind

The scenes within
my monochrome mind
bring forth a journey
of time after time.
Scenes so transfixing
as old days have passed
bring forth a journey
with a shadowy cast.
My monochrome mind
lives now as a glimmer
scenes of snow white
I’ve found within winter.
With breezes blowing
and snowflakes to fall
my monochrome mind
will record it all.
Yet sometimes colors
will paint a design
displaying memories
my monochrome mind.

In The Beginning

Looking for doorways
time evolves space
in the beginning
of the human race.
God creates pathways
that started with one
in the beginning
when time has begun.
A moment of thinking
thought up to be
in the beginning
of you and of me.
The stage always changing
with moments of mind
in the beginning
of time after time.
God had imagined
what all He created
in the beginning
what all He awaited.
The first then of Adam
and then there was Eve
in the beginning
that God did conceive.
Life became abundant
as time ticked ahead
in the beginning
with all that was said.
Each page was turning
with new stages set
in the beginning
we should not forget.
Time was a journey
for many to grow
in the beginning
of life to and fro.

Across The Sky

A summer storm
comes raging through
across the sky
that once was blue.
The rain falls down
on every sight
within the day
and summers night.
Thunder’s roaring
speaking loud
across the sky
with clouds a shroud.
Lightning streaking
at a glance
across the sky
that seems to dance.
The minutes ticking
seem to say
across the sky
is a rainy day.
With each moments
lightning bolt
across the sky
is a roaring jolt.
Raindrops coming
from the sights
across the sky
with sound and lights.

Beyond Perception

Some sights seen
might twist and turn
to what our brain
will not discern.
Beyond perception
we might see
what our brain
does not agree
and those times
we might be found
to seek to find
what’s fact and sound.
Yet some moments
that appear
might be right
not thought so clear.
Beyond perception
lives a place
sometimes doubtful
face to face.

A Moonlight Night

A starry night
with moon above
is often all
that I think of.
The twinkling essence
in the sky
a moonlight night
displays so high.
With each pattern

For so often
I can see
a moonlight night
of history.
Times remembered
I delight
with you and me
a moonlight night.

The Whitest Days

Those winter days
that I remember
still burn bright
a snowy ember.
The whitest days
that I recall
came a few days
after fall.
The beginning of
old winters ways
to expose
the whitest days.
Snowflakes falling
to the ground
the whitest days
are surely found.
Scenes as blankets
to and fro
the whitest days
are winters snow.
Then the blessings
come in sight
to then delight.
Silent blessings
have a voice
snowflakes falling
to rejoice.
The whitest days
of joyful true
are Christmastime
for me and you.
With the magical
Christmas snow
the whitest days
bring HoHoHo.
Santa’s sleighbells
in the night
the whitest days
bring much delight.
Then those stories
read and heard
of dear Jesus
word for word.
Our dear Savior
from above
the whitest days
are filled with love.
Lights found blinking
twinkling true
display auras
oh so new.
The whitest days
of Christmas flavor
come from Jesus
Lord and Savior.
So now find
God’s wondrous ways
throughout time
the whitest days.

Ventures Of A Smile

Amongst ones frowning
smiles exist
sometimes as a
moment’s mist.
Ventures of a smile
can begin inside
that ones so often
just wanna hide.
Many are afraid to
show how they feel
as they continue
to always conceal.
Ventures of a smile
so many need to see
to then find their own
through times misery.
Show ones your smile
and a heartbeat might find
ventures of a smile
in their own design.

Sometimes A Day

Sometimes our problems
are just but a thing
sometimes a moment
a touch out of swing.
Sometimes a day
is only a sight
found as a turnstile
not seeming so right.
Yet many doorways
that we walk on through
are just a pathway
that we need to do.
Sometimes our verdicts
are not very clear,
because we’re still viewing
from our yesteryear.
Often a moment
is just but a way
needed for growing
in sometimes a day.

Painted With Love

Time tells a story
of a passionate one
that is Lord Jesus
God’s True Only Son.
Even the present days
display His Heart
that is found with us
a great work of art.
God gave us Someone
to forgive of our past
and is there always
with His great contrast.
He is The Painter
the artist Divine
that loves us dearly
no matter our sign.
Jesus will help us
to find who we are
painted with love
a bright shining star.

A Silver lake

Upon a lake
of shimmering hue
I saw a sign
reflected true.
A silver lake
with sunshine bright
shows of ripples
silver sight.
Then as waves
come into frame
a silver lake
time does attain.
Scenes of beauty
come alive
a silver lake
where waves arrive.
Time then passes
no mistake
memories of
a silver lake.

Today’s memories
might be a tad out of sync
due to misperceptions.

Beyond a shadow
lies a pattern time has made
that we might not see.

Love has emotions
that are distinguished wrongly
as ones will rush it.

Noticing a star
gives life to the galaxy
that your mind perceives.

Various people
will only live for themselves
not knowing friendship.

An unopened door
still holds mysteries inside,
but enter at risk.

A storm that blows through
might leave us its memories
found in destruction.

When acting stupid,
expect others to agree
if they don’t know you.

Distinguishing summer
is easy to do most times
when winter arrives.

When heartbeats collide
the passed will become lesser
as life becomes new.

Mornings own sunshine
might be hidden behind clouds,
but still be shining.

The wants of ones greed
will dig them many deep holes
if allowed to buy.

A simple notion
can become a great journey
if it’s not whacko.

Our ifs,  ands and buts
can evolve into destruction
if the truth is dead.

Behind every thought
is a passageway of time
that might not work well.

Mundane emotions
can make ones think you don’t care
as life supersedes.

Unwanted actions
can often end in anger,
so take heed your  stride.

The center of time
brings the minutes into sight
counted as seconds.

Using ones for gain
will only divulge your heart
and find loneliness.

Space with its starlight
holds many different things
that we cannot see.

Answers to questions
often end with more questions
as life moves along.

Counting your blessings
will make you grateful for God
as you kneel in prayer.
