ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a wild week the last few days as we
have been attempting to potty train Rocky LOL.
We’re slowly but surely making progress,  plus
Benny wasn’t too accepting of Rocky,  but for
the first time this morning,   they were sitting
together on the top step waiting for me to let
them back in.  I had let them both out to go to
the bathroom and it looks like Rocky might of
finally got it.  Yesterday when I let him out to
go potty,  he never left the top step and that’s
where he went potty hehehe.  This morning I
went out our back door and snuck around to
see if that is what he did today and if so I was
going to use the water hose and wash it off
and him if he got it on his feet,  but him and
Benny were sitting side by side waiting for
me to let them in.  I left them outside for two
hours.  Also,  Rocky had never been able to
manipulate the steps going down.  He could
go up,  but not down LOL.  Yet,  this time
when they saw me,  they both came running
down the steps together with smiling faces
jumping up wanting me to pet them hehehe.
I went up the steps to let them in,  but I must
of locked the door,  so I had to go around to
the back door to go in and open the front
door.  They both chased me around to the
back and when I opened the door they both
ran in side by side and wanted to give mom
a good morning kiss hehehe.  So,  it looks
like we might of finally made some headway.
I have Milo’s ashes in the living room on
the TV.  We’re going to buy an urn with his
name on it and put his ashes in it.  Right
now they’re in a box in a bag with his name
on it that the vet put them in.  I often go in
the living room and talk to him.  He’s still
part of our household.  LOL Rocky is in
his bed in the floor looking up at me with
his little toothy grin :)  Yep,  the Pearce’s
Place has gone to the dogs with us asking
ever so often “Who Let The Dogs Out”.
Oh yea,  it looks like my daughter Jamye
and her daughter Sami will be coming up
for Christmas.  She will be bringing her
boyfriend and his son.  She said she has
bought the tickets already.  I sure hope
nothing happens that will prevent her
from coming.  Judy and I are excited,  but
it means that we need to get back started
cleaning out our spare room hehehe.  It’s
a tad cluttered,  but we have about five
months,  so it’ll get done.  I don’t think she
realizes that we start getting snow early
in November hehehe.  I told Jamye that she
might get to see a white Christmas,  which
is more like a will see a white Christmas.
We’ve had a white Christmas every year
since we moved up in December of 2007.
I was going back and looking at all of my
pictures through the years of Christmas
snow and each year it has been white as
can be hehehe.  It’ll be a first for her.  She
might of seen a little snow for Christmas
in Texas,  but nothing like what we get :)
Not to worry about the roads.  Our road
crews up here take care of business and
keep the roads driveable.  There might be
a few times that the road crew has to wait
for the snow to slack off a bit due to the
lack of visibility,  but they get right on it
after it has slacked off.  They even from
time to time come in and throw dirt in our
driveway when there is ice on it.  That’s
nice of them.  Our landlord does pretty
good keeping our driveway plowed.  He
will sometimes hire someone when his
plow is broken down.  He’s surely not
the greatest landlord,  but I have seen
much worse.  He’s a nice guy.  He often
gives us something for Christmas.  Judy
and I love living out here away from the
city life.  It’s peaceful and I can play my
conga drums whenever I want to hehehe.
I’m in love with the scenery.  I never get
tired of taking pictures of it.  Judy and
I will ever so often take a picture taking
drive.  It looks like though I might have
to buy me a new camera next month.  My
old camera is falling apart.  Judy bought
this camera for me back in 2004 and it’s
taken tons of great pictures,  but it has
seen its better days.  Right now it’s held
together with tape LOL.  Each time I
take the camera card out to save to my
PC and Judy’s I am wondering if I will
be able to get it taped back and not lose
the piece that is needed for the camera
to work hehehe.  God takes good care
of us and I’m sure He won’t let me down.
We don’t have much,  but we are happy.
These little boys running and playing in
the house brings joy to our hearts.  Judy
and I enjoy watching our favorite TV
programs together.  She’s gotten back
to writing her book.  She had paused for
a bit due to the loss of our beloved Milo,
but she has started writing again.  She
told me last night that she is going to
send me the first chapter so I can get
started proofreading it.  She proofreads
my poetry with me most of the time. It’s
a God thing that her and I enjoy much
of the same things.  Jesus lives within
our hearts and in our home.  Does He
live with you?  If not,  why not take Him
into your heart today and be filled with
His blessings.  Yes,  things will go wrong.
Milo had to be put to sleep,  but he isn’t
gone from our hearts.  He is well now up
in Heaven waiting for us to join him when
our time comes to be to leave these old
worn out bodies to be made anew.  Life
is a mystery with good and bad that is
found day to day.  It’s with the bad that
we are more grateful for the good and
filled with joy.  Without the bad times
we would be bored with the good and
become stagnate.  Welcome Jesus into
your heart today and let Him help you
with the bad times and be joyful in the
good times.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to begin my quest 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 little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  It looks like I
may have found a decent title just a little
ways back in my rambling and now after
checking I see that I have not used it as
of yet,  but used it shall be today.  Enjoy.

If Not

When you’re with worry
and found in much pain
God can show blessings
to be of your gain.
If not for troubles
and problems galore,
time might evade us
where blessings are more.
If not for road blocks
that come in our way
we might continue to
seek the wrong day.
Sometimes a turnstile
will open just right
and then be found with
God’s Bright Shining Light.
Yet often doorways
will seem to be good,
but not be the right thing
of which that you should.
If not for those times
of right or wrong styles
we might get bored with
our God given whiles.

OK,  there ya go.  I hope that made at least
a little sense to ya.  Also I hope you enjoyed
my rambling.  LOL,  I know I tend to talk
more about the boys,  but we love them so
much.  Hehehe Rocky has rolled over on his
back and sleeping with his paws in the air.
Sooooo cute!  Benny is in the living room
at his post upon one of the recliners.  He’s
our little guard dog/doorbell.  I just wish he
would not bark every time he hears our
neighbors across the way LOL,  but he is
a dog even if we consider him our lil boy :)
So,  what else is there to share with you
that I have yet to do????  I can’t think of
anything,  so I reckon it’s time for me to
be telling you what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems with 1
of them being a Christmas poem hehehe.
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 of 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 joyful
weekend or what ever is left of it and a
truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
to find that dad gum off switch.  LOL
I see ya you silly thing.  When are you
going to start looking for new places to
hide?  You’ve hidden behind the curtains
already once or twice hehehe.  So I guess
I got ya,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Milo
and soon to be Rocky Pearce

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

Stepping Stones

Each step we make
brings paths to find
some seconds found
from time to time.
Those stepping stones
might find some bumps
where our problems
took some dumps.
Each days journey
brings to view
some stepping stones
for us to do.
Step after step
we walk and learn
from stepping stones
that times discern,
Often doorways
of different tones
are our lessons
stepping stones.

As Seconds Turn

The moments find
a minute found
as seconds turn
with sight and sound.
Things encountered
we discern
become lessons
as seconds turn.
A scene,  a sign
stuck in our head
might then become
a moment of dread.
As seconds turn
and days pass by
we might then find
a question of why.
It’s with the moments
that we recognize
that we will often
see truth and lies.
For as seconds turn
each day is complete
left with our wantings
and needs to accrete.

Within A Dream

There’s a place
where fantasies
will come alive
as raging seas.
Within a dream
a time can brew
and be something
you wish to do.
This fine place
where joy is found
can turn nasty
time around.
Within a dream
of overuse
a nightmare can
become set loose.
For those dreams
need find what’s true
and learn what’s best
for you to do.

Lines Of A Tree

A forest of trees
displays certain sights
within the ages
of each tree of heights.
Some standing firmly
so high to explore
and some that are growing
just like times before.
The lines of a tree
tell its age old or young
while also displaying
when they had begun.
A tree cutters ax
might fall one so big
exposing the lines
when found in their rig.
The trees give oxygen
for you and for me,
so why not take care
of the lines on a tree.
We need their beauty
and green leaves to grow
to help us always
with our ebb and flow.

Looking For Signs

While within summer
I’m looking for signs
Christmassy blessings
of wonderful times.
Fantastic portions
of which I remember
come to me Christmas
within sweet December.
Yet now as summertime
displays its glory
I’m looking for signs
of a Christmastime story.
The blessings of Jesus
in every which way.
I’m look for signs of
that great Christmas Day.
The summertime scenes
my sight now unwinds
while Christmas is what I’m
looking for signs.

The Sight Within Me

My own inner being
is sometimes misled,
the sight within me
that guides me ahead.
Those moments surely
have bumps in their lanes
gathered from seeing
what trouble attains.
The sight within me
is taught every day
sometimes but only
through moments of grey.
We all have problems
that only we see
for surely some moments
are just you and me.
My inner sight seeing
needs learn to see true
the sight within me
that’s better to view.

Without My Eyes

Our eyes give us sight
with things to see,
but our nose will inhale
an abundant degree.
Our ears will be found
with sounds to explore
as a snap of a twig
or a slam of a door.
Without my eyes
I might need to learn
to see with my ears
and nose to discern.
Even by touching things
I might find clear
things I didn’t smell,
and see or even hear.
I know my other senses
will surely comprise
even when I might be
without my eyes.

Knowing Yourself

Sometimes our problems
begin first inside
not knowing ourselves
as time frames reside.
Knowing yourself
can help you to see
what that’s of you
and what that’s of me.
We each might find that
we think we know true,
but find out it’s not what
that we should then do.
Life has a way of
showing confusion
while knowing ourselves
becomes an illusion.
Now is a time to
learn who you are
with knowing yourself
not oh so bizarre.

Tomorrow’s Past Days

The day after now
leaves stories to tell
words of a journey
that might not seem well.
Tomorrow’s past days
might be with regret
things that we’d wish to
in some ways forget.
As each day’s ended
and night comes to be
our words and actions
come clearer to see.
Tomorrow’s past days
are often exposed
sometimes with lessons
we somehow disposed.
Look now more clearly
and find better ways
lessons from turnstiles
tomorrow’s past days.

Finding A Breath Full

A time of so peaceful
sometimes has some clouds
spread out through minutes
as a moment enshrouds.
Don’t let those storm clouds
to take your days smile.
Find God through blessings
to surely compile.
Often our pathways
of journeys will be
finding a breath full
of which we can see.
Yet on occasions
we might not see clear
the blessings from Lord God
of year after year,
Finding a breath full
might need you to grow
and maybe learn to
sometimes let go.

Haiku
for July 25,  2015

Harboring anger
can cause a large explosion
within you own mind.

Free falling people
might land on ones passing by
and end with regret.

An anchor less ship
could find itself miles away
and striking some rocks.

Gazing at the stars
you’ll find some that are brighter
that might be planets.

As humans grow wiser
we in time find ourselves dumb
for things we thought right.

Counting the minutes
to the beginning of life
might show some changes.

Now is a moment
that will soon become the past
as time moves along.

Many discoveries
can change the way that we think
and build a new path.

With bad perception
you might find yourself confused
headed the wrong way.

Deciphering dreams
can sometimes lose the meanings
seen in the wrong light.

With hearts united
life can become much greater,
if God is within.

Sights of a dreamer
can often become clouded
and become nightmares.

Christmas believing
brings Lord Jesus Christ alive
with the gift of love.

Beyond our cosmos
we might never understand
what life that exists.

Collected moments
can turn into your baggage
even if it’s good.

Various people
find themselves in delusion
when found in the night.

Way up in the sky
clouds will sometimes form designs
that we recognize.

In the ocean deep
there lives many mysteries
we may never know.

Our own galaxy
is still very much unknown,
but we’re learning more.

A forest of trees
can hide the most wondrous sites
within its branches.

Weak from a journey
could leave you wanting to stop
before you get there.

A quick moments glance
is often just misconceived
for it was done fast.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a sad week here at the Pearce’s place,
but it’s cheered up a bit since the last few days.
Are you ready for me to tell ya why?  Well Judy
had been wanting another dog,  but we weren’t
allowed to have more than 2 dogs.  Besides,  we
had our hands full with Benny and Milo.  Now
as Milo has moved on to Heaven and his picture
hangs in our living room with his joyful essence,
we found ourselves in need of another dog to fill
the void.  Benny still misses Milo and I’m sure
he will always as we will also.  But Judy had her
eyes on a little Shihtzu named Rocky and I said,
let’s get him.  We need the sounds of those little
paws running around playing in our home and it
had gotten too quiet.  Anyways,  Judy’s brother
Ricky loaned us the money to get Rocky and we
picked him up from the airport July 16 which
was Benny’s 4 year birthday.  Rocky is 3 years
old.  He came from Florida.  Boy is he in for
a surprise come wintertime LOL.  Rocky is a
lot like Milo was.  He doesn’t like the outdoors,
but it seems he was never potty trained so we
have been working with him every day to get
him to understand that peeing and pooping
is done outside,  not inside LOL.  He’ll learn.
We have only had him for 3 days ya know :)
Benny came with us to pick Rocky up from
the airport and when he saw me take Rocky
out of the crate,  he went crazy with joy,  but
I don’t think he was aware that Rocky was
coming home with us until I put him in the
car with him.  Benny got a little growly at
him :)  but then even Milo got a little growly
at Benny sometimes hehehe.  I’m sure they
will become the best of friends in time just
like Benny and Milo were,  for even people
aren’t always quick to become friends.  It
takes time.  So,  what else is there to tell
ya about the goings on around this place?
Well,  last night was the first night since we
got Rocky that he didn’t poop in the floor,
so we might be getting through to him,  but
time will tell.  He did though end up in here
with me after Judy and her sister headed
up to see Ricky at 11 AM today and well,
Rocky had an accident.  Yep,  he pooped in
here and I put his nose down to it and then
I spanked him saying NO.  Then I put him
outside and cleaned up the poop.   It’ll take
time.  We had to stay after Benny until it
finally clicked that he doesn’t get spanked
if he poops outside hehehe.  Yep,  this home
is full of surprises LOL.  We bought some
training spray when we got Benny,  but it
never worked.  You’re supposed to spray it
where you want them to go potty.  We’re
giving it a try with Rocky,  but once again,
time will tell :)  Judy sprayed it on our car
tires for some reason hehehe and he went
and peed on them,  just like dogs will never
do LOL.  Yes,  we do silly stuff.  Judy can’t
count the times that I have done some crazy
stuff hehehe.  I think she enjoys my antics,
such as my making up songs off the top of
my head.  She’s amazed at how I do that :)
Yet she knows I am a quick thinker being
I can write 10 poems and 22 haiku in just
a matter of a few hours LOL.  I can’t wait
to read Judy’s new book,  but she’s still in
the process of writing it and going back
and making changes ever so often.  She
had sort of slacked off writing with the
situation of Milo facing us,  but now with
our new little boy,   she might get back to
writing.  She writes great poetry too.  Not
quite as much as I do,  but then.  I don’t
know of anyone that writes as much as I
do hehehehe.  It seems I have trouble with
my thinker never shutting down.  It does
get irritating at times,  but it’s God’s gift
to me,  so I use it as best that I can.  It’s
62 F degrees right now at 2:30 PM.  It
rained a big part of the morning,  but at
the moment it’s just sprinkling.  Rocky
is right behind me in a doggy bed playing
with a toy.  A squeaking toy I might add :)
I don’t think he ever had a doggy bed or
any toys,  because it took some time to
get him to understand that the bed that
we were putting him in was for him and
he’s been going to town with all of the
many doggy toys that we have LOL.  All
morning it was squeaky squeak with him
in his doggy bed LOL.  Benny is back at
his perch on one of the recliners in the
living room.  He’s our little guard dog :)
I wish our landlord would hurry and mow
the lawn.  The grass is getting rather high.
I got the weed eater out yesterday and cut
a few down to size so that we could set up
our picnic table and the boys swimming
pool.  I also got the doghouse moved over
beside our front steps and it seems that
Rocky likes it.  He took a few tours inside
and on top of it.  I still find myself crying
over the loss of Milo,  but he is in a better
place now and in no more pain.  Through
Jesus and His love we will all be united
again one day when our time comes,  so
we will see him again.  God is great and
He has most surely blessed our home.
With God,  all things are possible and
blessings are given freely and forgiveness
through His Son is endless.  Remember,
life has it’s different portholes of which
we will pass.  Allow God inside your
heart and learn the power of prayer :)
Judy and I would be nothing without
God in our lives.  We’ve so much to be
thankful for.  We’ve had uncountable
blessings.  We have another blessing
now with us to give us smiles.  Benny
will in time learn to love his new little
brother.  It took Milo a while to learn
to love Benny.  Milo would snarl at
him time to time if Benny got on his
nerves LOL.   Benny does the same,
being Benny is now the big brother :)
Rocky just jumped up to my leg and
he wants me to pet him.  Awwwwww!
Now he’s lying down in the floor.  He’s
happy and looking up at me with his
little smile.  Thank You God for all
that You do for our family.  Judy and
I are always with Your protection as
we watch each day go by.   If you do
not know God and His Son,   then I
hope that you will one day take the
time to get to know Him.  So now
I reckon it’s time for me to begin my
search back through all that I have
written to see if I can find me a good
word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem.  So
it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title and now after checking
I see that I have not used it yet,  but it’s
getting used today.  Here goes :)

Uncountable Blessings

When life seems perplexing
for what you perceive
uncountable blessings
are there to retrieve
Portions momentous
might come into view
while displaying only
what bad comes to you.
Yet from encounters
uncountable shows
blessings from Lord God
to heal all our woes.
It might take some time
for peace found in frame,
but within Lord Jesus
there’s power in The Name.
Uncountable blessings
come to us each day,
but often unnoticed
within our which way.
Time becomes patterns
for many transgressing
but Lord God still gives us
uncountable blessings.
Forgiveness through Jesus
as each day moves on,
He still gives us blessings
even when we are wrong.

OK,  how’s that?  I hope you got something
out of that.  Did my rambling on an on about
our boys bore ya to tears LOL?  I hope not.
I just let Rocky outside to do his business :)
I hope he does and he doesn’t just sit on the
top steps wanting to come back inside as he
does almost every time we let him out hehehe.
I just figured I just gave him and Benny some
treats and thought he might need to go out
for a bit to potty.  Benny is once again lying
on the recliner in the living room.  I’ll go and
let Rocky back in after a bit.  He’ll be OK
out there.  It’s not raining and it’s only 63 F
degrees.  Not quite the summers that I grew
up with hehehe.  It’s 4 PM and I don’t think
it’s gonna get any warmer today.  Tomorrow
the high is supposed to be in the lower 70’s.
I don’t miss that Texas heat.  Looking back
I can remember many heat strokes and a
few sunburns hehehe.  Of course one can
get sunburned up here just as easily as in
Texas,  but the heat isn’t near as bad LOL.
I just went and let Rocky back inside and
noticed that it had started sprinkling agin
and he was a little wet :)  He’s OK.  It must
of just started sprinkling.  He’s back in
here with me now.  LOL the weather is
changing my conga drums tuning status.
Now my smaller conga is the bass.  I’ll
need to retune them before I play them
again :)  Life in the rainy state of Maine.
LOL if it’s not snowing,  it’s raining and
visa versa.  So is there anything that I’ve
forgotten to tell you?  Nope,  I think I’ve
said all that I need to say aside from the
regular that 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 poems
this week.  Maybe next week :)  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 a
most joyous weekend or what ever is
left of it and a blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now where’s that dad burned
off switch trying to hide this week? :)
Hmm,  me thinks I might see a little
bit of movement behind my statuette
that our old neighbors gave me that
says I think you’re nice.  Yep,  there
ya are you little whippersnapper LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Rocky Pearce
“never ever forgetting Milo”

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

Tomorrow’s Destiny

With every ending
another begins
tomorrow’s destiny
moments depend.
Seen from a distance
as now passes by
tomorrow’s destiny
might seem to fly.
Passing of choices
from our yesterdays
tomorrow’s destiny
comes in some ways.
Often as turnstiles
we never did see
tomorrow’s destiny
creates history.
Time frames unnoticed
as pages are turned
tomorrow’s destiny
ones sadly discern.
Found as just sadness
turning around
tomorrow’s destiny
needs prayer abound.
Throughout a prayer
some God given free
good can be found in
tomorrow’s destiny.

A Leaf That Blows

On a summers day
a leaf that blows
finds a path
wherever it goes.
Wind driven journeys
with leaves blowing free.
on a summers day
there’s so much to see.
Tree’s found a swaying
with wind blowing through
the scenes are all found
as a time thereunto.
A leaf that blows
with others each day
the moments all find
there’s so much to say.
Rustling thusly
a leaf that blows
follows the wind
wherever it goes.

Looking Too Fast

Minutes go quickly
when not taking time
looking too quickly
not seeing the sign.
Things we encounter
as our shadows cast
sometimes we miss things
when looking too fast.
Not taking time to
enjoy what we see
looking to fast then
leaves a degree.
Times that we hurried
to see and look on
looking too fast then
was lost in the dawn.
We might discover
what glances can give
and looking too fast can
not see what that lives.
Take now the time to
look closely and see
all of God’s blessings
for you and for me.

Mistaken Shadows

A shadowy figure
might come into view
that is mistaken
for something thought true.
Mistaken shadows
can sometimes be seen
that of a nightmare
or there in-between.
Often our viewpoint
is just but a gaze
that is mistaken
for horrific phase.
Our imaginations
can sometime run wild
and make us see things
we thought as a child.
Mistaken shadows
from our inner fears
might just be stemming
from our yesteryears.

Within The Rain

A storm cloud comes
with rains to fall
and brings some sights
that I recall.
Within the rains
are memories
of childhood days
with raindrop trees.
Under an oak tree
with rain falling down
I would be sheltered
with little dry ground.
Within the rain
there’s also a sign
lightning found striking
time after time.
Thunder heard roaring
as loud as can be
within the rain
I can hear and see.
Scenes floating by now
as storm clouds attain
I am now dripping
within the rain.

The Life Of A Star

Beyond the cosmos
so many are twinkling
stars up there daily
with all that they’re thinking.
Found then so magically
at night shining bright
the life of a star
is with twinkling light.
The stars that we’re seeing
might not now exist,
for they might of died
but their light does persist.
The distance the light years
determines their shine
the life of a star
and each found design.
Some watch them joyfully
from here to afar
to try to get a glimpse of
the life of a star.

Searching My Mind

So many mysteries
come and then go
searching my mind
what all I should know.
Things I’ve encountered
with time marching on
brings all the journeys
my mind dusk to dawn.
Searching my mind for
my past days gone by
often will help me
with who,  where and why.
Things I remember
that life taught me so
searching my mind
often helps me to grow.
Using those lessons
that time taught to me
God shows me truly
what I need to see.

Loss Of A Loved One

As life finds its ending
beginnings are found
loss of a loved one
finds true higher ground.
The death of the body
leaves life to move on
as Heaven beacons
the soul’s never gone.
Loss of a loved one
will bring us despair,
but God gives us peaceful
with moments of prayer.
Our love continues
to live in the skies
while loss of a loved one
might be in our eyes.
Find all the blessings
from loved ones you’ve known
and let not their death
makes misery grown.
Remember your loved ones
are now well to be
and those that have gone on
one day you will see.

Sometimes A Story

Many find wording
of something ones say
sometimes a story
to ones day to day.
Many find doubtful
what often is said
sometimes a story
is made up instead.
Yet many speaking
might mean all the truth
with many feeling
the pulling of a tooth.
Sometimes a story
can be reality
as time continues on
with all that we see.
So many journeys
might seem as mere lies,
simply because they’re not
seen with our own two eyes.

A Sudden Thought

A thought of despair,
a moment of wonder
might come so suddenly
just like some thunder.
A sudden thought
from a moment of time
might become lemons
are maybe a lime.
Often our moments
will fall out of sync,
the best of a thought
and the right way to think.
Time becomes riddles
of patterns we find
sometimes so suddenly
time after time.
So take perception
to a much better sought,
don’t always let troubles
become a sudden thought.
Sometimes our thinking
can bring forth our pain
of a sudden thought
with lesser to gain.
Look for the good times
within your own past
and make s sudden thought
of the good times to last.

Haiku
for July 18,  2015

Beside misery
holds a place of discontent
that we could avoid.

Counting the raindrops
becomes an endless pattern
as storm clouds reside.

Walking in meadows
might leave footsteps uncounted
as time marches on.

Problems of others
can often become our own
if we’re not careful.

So many in need
stand with wanting arms stretched out,
but many ignore.

Morning brings chances
found within minutes counted
with choices to make.

Some scenes that we see
are often there every day,
but we don’t notice.

Beyond the starlight
holds so many mysteries
that we don’t perceive.

Tomorrow’s daylight
might be hidden fast away
behind a few clouds.

Right now a moment
might seem as eternity,
but be just the wind.

Thoughts that we’re thinking
can become reality.
Careful what you think.

Within the mind’s eye
a mystery can evolve
and become your fear.

Thinking of time passed
you might perceive some mistakes
that you must live with.

Life can be funny
bringing laughter from actions
that we stumbled on.

God shows us mercy
more times than we’ll ever know.
We should be thankful.

Linking together
all of our past and present,
we will find lessons.

Seeking for a smile
could find you in the middle
and being laughed at.

Let ego to dim
while allowing God to shine
in all that you do.

Beyond the starlight
holds places only dreamed of,
but yet might exist.

With squeaking doorways
comes a need for some oiling
as others just wait.

Clinging to the past
could prevent you from growing,
so learn to let go.

Rhythms of thunder
speak patterns within the sky
as lightning prevails.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a sad week around the Pearce’s place,
as our dear Milo had to be put to sleep.  He had
multiple health issues including liver cancer and
he was losing weight very quickly.  The poor guy
was hanging on with everything that he had,  but
we knew he was suffering.  He was so weak that
he could barely stand up.  But he gave it as large
a gungho as he could possibly give.  When I was
petting him,  he would fall over.  We loved and we
still love him tons and we knew this was best as
he was dying before our eyes.  We took him to
the vet and after he ran all of his test he said that
Milo is dying and probably the only thing keeping
him alive is his love for us.  They kept him over
night to run test and this was the conclusion. We
drove back to Presque Isle to be with Milo before
he was put to sleep and we held him and hugged
and kissed him.  We brought Benny in to say his
good-byes,  but Benny could hardly look at him
as he whimpered.   Then after the vet gave Milo
his shot to put him to sleep,  Benny came over
and sniffed and licked him as if to kiss his big
brother goodbye.  But it doesn’t end in a sad
note.  We happened across another dog in need
of a home and we bought him.  He’s like Benny,
a rescue dog.  His name is Rocky and he’s a 3
year old brown and white Shihtzu.  We will get
him this week.  He is coming from way down in
Florida.  Hehehe The little boy might of never
seen snow,  but he’s in for a surprise LOL.  We
will never forget Milo.  Milo was a big part of
our lives and a wonderful big brother to Benny.
This house will never be the same without him.
He had his silly little ways.  Fortunately,  I was
able to get him in a video with me playing my
congas July 4th.  He was outside with Benny
just walking around.  The video makes Judy
and I cry,  but we know he’s not hurting any
more as he waits at Rainbow Bridge for Judy
I and Benny to journey with us on into Heaven.

Here’s a little story I found on the Internet about

The RAINBOW BRIDGE

‘There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many
colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there
is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush
green grass.  When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes
to this place. There is always food and water and
warm spring weather. All the animals who have
been ill and old are restored to health and vigor;
those who were hurt or maimed are made whole
and strong again, just as we remember them
in our dreams of days and times gone by……
The animals are happy and content, except for
one small thing; they each miss someone very
special to them, who had to be left behind. They
all run and play together, but the day comes when
one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His
bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to
quiver. Suddenly he begins to run from the group,
flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him
faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when
you and your special friend finally meet, you cling
together in joyous reunion. The happy kisses rain
upon your face; your hands again caress the
beloved head, and you look once more into the
trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from
your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together,
never again to be separated.’
******
OK so now it’s on with my own rambling about
the newest member of our little family.  Rocky
is in for a great surprise as is also Benny for
Benny’s birthday is Thursday and what a great
birthday present this is for this little ball of fur
that has brought us so much joy.  We can’t wait
to hear the pitter patter of them playing chase
through the house and watch them playing with
each other as well as the doggy toys hehehehe.
We’re not yet sure when to go and pick Rocky
up,  but she promised it would be this week :)
I have a feeling I might get peed on again LOL.
When we picked up Benny from the airport on
March 11 2012,  Benny’s flight had been delayed
and he had been in his crate for 5 hours.  That
boy had to pee,  but he was so nervous that he
couldn’t,  but while Judy drove and he rode in
my lap,  he became relaxed and well,  you know
the rest hehehe.  Now I am marked territory
and he loves to lie in my lap and fall asleep :)
Rocky looks like he’s almost the same size as
Benny from the pictures,  but we will see.  We
are so anxious that we can hardly wait.  So,
Pearce’s Place is acquiring another heartbeat.
We are having Milo cremated and keeping
his ashes.  He will always be a part of our
home,  for our love shall never end.  I have
him and Benny tattooed on my forearm so
I am always with memories hehehe.  They
are running up my arm :)  In time I will
add Rocky in a way that he joins in the
chase up my arm,  but that is for another
day.  For now,  Judy and I are trying to
keep Benny cheered,  because he misses
his big brother.  LOL This time Benny
will be the big brother being he turns 4
next Thursday and Rocky turned 3 years
old February 4th of this year.  Now,  what
else is there to tell you.  Well,  there has
not been much else happening other than
what we did with Milo Monday and then
his last day on Tuesday.  Other than that
Judy and I spent time thinking of what
we should do and we both came to the
conclusion that Benny needed another
brother to play with and cheer him up.
So we started searching the sites.  Judy
went back to Puppyfind where she
found Benny and that’s where she saw
Rocky.  We both fell in love with him
and decided to get him.  I just know he
will brighten up our little home once
again.  The lady said that Rocky is
good with children and other dogs,  so
that’s great.  She said that when he
gets excited he runs around in circles.
LOL Just right for Benny.  It’s been
sort of warm for the passed few days
up here,  but I’m sure it’s nothing like
what it is down southern ways hehehe.
Right now it’s 82 F degrees and it’s
supposed to be the same Monday and
Tuesday,  but drop back down to the
mid 70’s after that.  It’s not been that
bad.  It’s just that I can handle cold
weather better than I can hot weather.
My lack of intestines along with being
hot natured makes me dehydrate very
easy.  We’ve been taking Benny out
for a little run in the field in front of
our house as often as possible.  He
loves to romp and play in the field :)
Him and Milo used to run side by side
as they ventured through the field
and also running through the house :)
We are excitedly waiting for our new
little boy to bounce throughout our
house with Benny.  LOL I can’t wait
to see how he reacts to the snow when
it starts coming down hehehe.  We
shall see :)  So,  I guess next weeks
journal will have updates on Rocky
and how he’s doing.  God has most
surely blessed our little home with
His Love.  We can feel His love  as
we look at one another.  Sometimes
things will happen that we would
rather not happen,  but God knows
what we need and He will provide.
We never want to lose a loved one,
but if you think about it,  it’s not a
loss,  but a temporary separation,
for we will be joined once again in
Heaven.  Let God shine in your life.
Don’t let death of a loved one to put
you into a world of anger,  but know
that God is in control and His Son
Jesus Christ is with us to help us to
make our new beginnings.  Now,  I
believe it’s time for me to be taking
my little journey back through all of
my ramblings to see if I can find a
good word or phrase that I can use
for the title of today’s brand new
poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may have spotted a good
title just a little ways back in my
rambling and after checking I see
that I have not used it as of yet,  but
used it shall be today.  Here goes…

Ventured Through

Those four legged days
with two in a field
have ventured through
not so concealed.
They’d bounce around
from here to there
and then wind up
most anywhere.
Benny and Milo
with heads held high
would run around
beneath the sky
They’d be together
each way they’d go
found in the summer
and wintertime’s snow.
Yet now dear Milo
is on Heaven’s ground
waiting for Benny
and us to be found.
We’ll never forget him,
for he was our boy
that ventured through
and brought us much joy.

OK,  so you can kind of tell that we miss our
little boy,  but we know he’s in a better place
and he is no longer in any pain.  He’s waiting
now to see us walking in the distance to come
join us in Heaven.  That day will come,  BUT,
for now,  we have another little bundle of joy
coming to be with us and join our little family.
This week is filled with great anticipation as
we await the message to pick Rocky up and
bring him home from the airport.  We are so
excited :)  So,  what else is there to tell you
that I haven’t already?  Hmm,  I can’t think
of anything,  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.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with
1 being sort of Christmassy and 2 of them
are about our four legged friends.  I also
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 believe it’s time for me to be searching
for that confounded off switch that’s not so
great at hiding,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend and a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  OK,  now where are ya
you little whippersnapper?   Awww,  come
on.  Can’t ya find a better hiding place
than my salt shaker?  Sheesh,  sometimes
I think you’re just lazy hehehe.  Anyways,
I gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Milo
and soon to be Rocky Pearce

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

Those Special Times

Those days remembered
a time ago
can be the peace
to end our woe.
Those special times
with mans best friend
are times so loved
that never end.
They live forever
deep inside
those special times
with each car ride.
That tail a wagging
wanting to go
those special times
a time ago.
The scenes are magical
which now reminds
of wonderful days
those special times.

Without Their Love

When sadness comes into our lives
as doorways found with pain
the ones we find with wagging tails
are there with peace to gain.
All those wonderful four legged friends
come with smiles to give
to help us when the world around us
is so hard to live.
For without their love so great
we might not understand
what unconditional really means
when Lord God holds our hand.
Those four legged friends so Heaven sent
are here to show so true
how that true love’s meant to be
as God loves me and you.
Without their love we’d never know
what peace can really be,
for they show love unconditional
for the world to see.

Time Rolls On

A summers day
with wind a blowing
gives me peace
that God’s bestowing.
Time rolls on
with minutes found
giving choices
to look around.
The pages turn
with time to read
and find the things
we really need.
Summers blessings
coming on cue
to display
a wondrous view.
Found within
the minutes gone
summer comes
and time rolls on.

When Now Meets Then

Finding a footing
when now meets then
there is so often
ones wondering when.
The moments the minutes
where shadows are seen
bring many illusions
of a nightmare or dream.
When now meets then
it often portrays
some similar instances
day after day.
Yet each occurrence
is different by far
when now meets then
the way that things are.
You might just remember
an instance of when,
but there are differences
when now meets then.

Searching For Winter

As I recall now
that wintertime snow
I now am feeling
a summertime woe.
Searching for winter
and Christmastime too
I find I’m thinking
of a sparkling hue.
Glittering scenes
in the snow oh so white
with lights all a twinkling
into the night.
Christmastime’s joyful
I now remember
while I am now just
searching for winter.
For now the weather
is OK for me,
but I prefer it
with white snow to see.
The cold of winter
helps me to feel
the blessings of life
so Christmassy real.
Those Christmas songs
that I love so,
I wish now to hear
on the radio.
Songs of Lord Jesus
and Santa Claus too
are what that I like
with a Heavenly view.
Searching for winter
on through summertime
finds me just gazing
searching for a sign.

A Smile From The Heart

When love is encountered
and blossoms and grows
a smile from the heart
Lord Jesus bestows.
As two find their pathway
together in life
the doorways are sometimes
a husband and wife.
A smile from the heart
can most surely bring peace
helping one another
with a little relief.
Often when united
two hearts will combine
and create another pathway
to a wonderful time.
A smile from the heart
is often what’s needed
to make the beginning
of blessings succeeded.
So as the minutes
and hours tick on
a smile from the heart
can make a great dawn.

Not Letting  Lie

When truthful finds fiction
with your alibi
time finds it better
not letting a lie.
If you’re found fibbing
about who you are
the truth might be found
from someone afar.
So it’s better to not let
yourself fall away
living in liars ville
day after day.
The truth will be found
when it’s least expected
as someone that knows
with time stood corrected.
Find now the flavors
of true honesty
not letting a lie
to be who you’ll be.
For surely the truth
will one day be shared
when someone that knows
displays you’re impaired.

Lost Beyond Time

While now might show
a moment displayed
found as a wonderful
minute God made,
the time ticks onwards
making more blessings
found with uniqueness
as Heavenly dressing.
Sometimes those moments
will get hidden away
and we will forget them
with day after day.
They’re lost beyond time
when memory is week
those special times
that now seems antique.
We need to remember
what God gave to find
and not let it be
just lost beyond time.

A Cosmic Voyage

A rocket tour
to outer space
becomes a trip
another place.
Heading upwards
to the sky
a cosmic voyage
now watch it fly.
Within a thought
of dreams and more
this rocket tour
will open a door.
Minds of mysteries
displaying true
a cosmic voyage
for me and you.
For we can dream
of flying away
a cosmic voyage
another day.
The scenes all change
as stars are found
way up in space
without a ground.
A cosmic voyage
to great extent
within a dream
of where you went.
You can take off
any time
to that cosmic
so sublime.
Search creations
smiling face
a cosmic voyage
to outer space.

Tomorrow’s Yesterday

As passing days become
tomorrow’s yesterday
the minutes that we see
might just fade away.
The echoes of heartbeats
that might intertwine
can become yesterday’s
moments we find.
Tomorrow’s yesterday
finds us exploring
what that had passed on
that we were adoring.
With each and every sight
that our eyes might see
the days continue on
with what will be will be.
Let God to show you
His love as you pray
and He’ll show you blessings

Haiku
for July 11,  2015

Watching the flowers
as they grow with their blossoms
shows many blessings.

As summer falls nigh
and autumn shows its colors
winter will prevail.

Beyond the starlight
holds mysteries of unknown
places that exist.

A wind driven leaf
flies briskly as a airplane
seeking where to land.

Summertime’s storm clouds
often bring in a cool breeze
along with some rain.

God shows His Glory
in many things we don’t see,
but yet we feel them.

Moments of vengeful
can create your own demise,
so try and find peace.

When lost in a dream
you might lose reality
and find a nightmare.

Standing and watching
and not trying to give help
can come back to haunt.

Many keep secrets
locked tight within their minds
for fear of judgment.

Long awaited time
will come sometimes so slowly
it seems not moving.

Narrowly missing
the troubles within your path
doesn’t mean they’re gone.

Morning brings sunshine
as the day brings decisions
with what will you do.

Painting with your mind
gives abundance of colors
to create a smile.

Leftover thinking
could find you with much turmoil
if it’s with anger.

Linking many minds
can be done but with patience,
yet all aren’t patient.

Nearing your life’s end
might find fear within your heart,
but Heaven awaits.

Beyond the starlight
holds places that we dream of
and one day might see.

A river flowing
might have a world in its depth
that is standing still.

Waves upon a shore
become painters of pictures
while always changing.

A four legged friend
can bring peace to a moment
that’s otherwise sad.

Emotions ocean
has many sways within time
as life comes ashore.

Many Disasters

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s sort of warm today.  Right now it’s 78 F
degrees and sunny.  There’s a slight chance
for rain later on this evening,  but it’s a very
slight chance LOL.  Milo is still not feeling
well.  We’re taking the poor little boy to the
vet this week.  Hopefully they can prescribe
something for him to get him back up to par.
He is 10 years old though.  The little guy in
human years according to breed is 56 years
old.  He’ll be 60 Oct 31 2015.  Yep,  he be a
Halloween dog hehehe.  I hope that he gets
well soon.  I miss his happy little face and his
brother Benny misses playing with him.  Yet,
we do know that dogs have a much shorter
lifespan than humans.  Still,  we want Milo
to be with us for a few more years.  They’re
our little boys :)  So,  what else is there to
tell ya.  Oh yea,  our grandson Christian and
granddaughter Rylee came and spent the
day with us Wednesday.  Her mom (Judy’s
oldest daughter Mandy) came and got her
that evening and Helena was supposed to
come and pick up Christian when she got
off work,  but hehehe she kind of forgot
and so we had Christian for the night.  We
had a good time watching videos and all
so it was all good.  Rylee will be 8 years
old this month and Christian is 13.  He’s
gone now to spend some time with his
other grandparents in southern Maine :)
He’ll be back soon :)  LOL we think he
comes here for the Internet hehehe.  He
hasn’t got any where he lives.  We love
those kids,  I can’t wait till Chance is able
to come and visit us.  Him and me met
back when I flew up to Maine to meet
Judy in person for the first time and we
connected.  It was like an instant bond :)
Judy and I were already in love and had
bonded.  Her family accepted me from
the get go.  It was like it was meant to
be.  Anyways,  onto another topic.  Well
this Saturday was the 4th of July and we
just sat inside as we heard the fireworks
going off in town 8 miles away hehehe.
Judy went over to her ex’s house to be
with her family.  Her daughters live with
him.  They had a cook out and a few of
them had water fights.  I stayed home
to keep an eye on Milo and yes of course
Benny stayed home too.  I stayed busy
working on Judy’s PC to get it fixed and
washed the dishes then I also carried my
conga drums outside and did a couple
of videos.  I left the front door opened so
that the boys could come out with me if
they wanted to.  Benny romped around
a bit and Milo wandered around a little
bit,  but he soon decided to go back in.
He sort of stumbled going up the steps,
but he made it.  Anyways,  Judy made
it home about 9 PM and we watched
some of our TV programs before Judy
began to nod off and so we headed off
to bed.  So This weekend wasn’t that
spectacular for me,  but it could of been
worse.  We are both hoping that the
vet can give Milo something to make
him feel better.  In any sense,  he’s in
God’s Hands.  Benny and Milo managed
to get in both of the videos that I did :)
The second show Milo headed back
inside and then turning around after
he got in and looking at me hehehehe.
I bought them some yogurt treats and
they both seem to love them.  I also
bought Milo 4 cans of Alpo being he
hasn’t wanted what I had been feeding
him.  He ate the Alpo and that made us
happy.  Hopefully he will be back to
his old self again soon.  I know,  I’ve
talked about him most of the journal :)
We love our boys <3  Yeppers,  they’re
the boys we couldn’t have :)  Now as
I look outside I see that the sun has
been hidden as a few clouds come
drifting by.  The next two days are
supposed to be in the lower 80’s,  but
after that back to the lower to upper
70’s .  So,  it’s not gonna be too bad.
Oh yea,  last Sunday being that I wrote
my journal and published it around
3 AM in the morning,  I wasn’t able to
send the beautiful pictures of the red
sky that was displayed about 4:30 that
morning,  so I’ll put them in this weeks
stationery for all those that are getting
this in the stationery format hehehe.
Christian was coming that day and I
didn’t want to be stuck writing the
whole time he was here as I was the
previous week LOL.  Also I’ll put a
picture in the stationery of Christian
Judy and I later that day.  There is
so much that I have to thank God for.
He’s blessed our home with love as
He had put this family together like
a puzzle.  We came together united.
Each piece just right.  Thank You
Lord God for all that You have done.
Thank You for protecting us from the
many disasters of life and giving us the
strength to endure what we must go
through.  Judy and I know that our
time is numbered and we have faith
that when our time in these bodies
has ended we will meet again up in
Heaven and be joined with Benny
and Milo.  My dog from my childhood
will be there waiting along side with
Benny and Milo.  We will be together
forever in peace with no sickness.
Our family and friends that have gone
on before us will be there awaiting
to greet us.  It will most surely be a
wonderful day.  Yet,  we thank You
God for the time that we have in the
here and now,  for there is much to
enjoy.  With our love for photography
we tend to find the beauty in many
places that others take for granted.
Look for the blessings.   They are
there and awaiting to be discovered.
Now I believe I have rambled quite
enough don’t ya think and it’s time
for me to be taking my little quest
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 little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  Hmm,  it
looks like I may have found a decent
title and now after checking I see
that I have not used it as of yet,  but
used it shall be today.  Here goes :)

Many Disasters

As wars of time
display their goal
oh so many will
take a great toll.
Many disasters
will come into place,
but we should know
we’re saved by grace.
Our lives might find
a time so sad,
when we’re thinking
of things we had,
but life has good
that things can’t show,
for truth of time
makes blessings grow.
Many disasters
will find us at war
with our own choices
not better by far.
So think now of life
and freedom to live
and share your thoughts
what soldiers did give.
The past has a way
of fading away
when we’re forgetting
what wars did display.
With bullets flying
and many to die
many disasters
are peace you and I.
All of those soldiers
fought for USA
to give us the freedom
that lives on today.

OK,  there ya go.  I thought I should write
a Independence Day poem,  but then again
I already wrote one yesterday hehehehehe.
Now ya have two of em.  I hope you liked
the poem and maybe even the journal.  Yes
I know I tended to ramble quite a bit about
Milo,  but I am worried about him.  We can
tell that he doesn’t feel well,  by just looking
in his eyes.  Please Keep him in your prayers.
So,  what else is there to tell ya that I might
have forgotten?  Hmm,  Oh yea,  I took a few
screen shots of my video.  They have Benny
and Milo in them :)  So,  those of you that
are able will be able to see them.  They’re
not the greatest pictures,  but remember,
they’re screen captures off of the video :)
So,  I guess that’s about all about that and
now it’s time for me 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 Christmas
related this week LOL.  One is like I said
earlier,  about the 4th of July.  I also wrote
22 more 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
near time for me to be searching for that
not so freaken illusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you all a most wonderful
weekend and belated 4th of July as well
as a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now to
find that confounded off switch that has
yet to of found a decent hiding spot LOL.
Hahahahaha I see ya you silly little thing.
Hiding in near the same spots that you
have hidden before is pretty much saying
ya wanna be caught,  but if ya don’t,  then
TRY HARDER next time will ya hehehe.
I see ya poking your head out from behind
that little monitor.  If you could manage
to not be poking your head out ever so
often,  I might not see ya and you might
stay hidden.   Maybe next time huh LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Beyond My Sight

Those sights unseen
that come and go
might be what’s found
with I don’t know.
Beyond my sight
there might just be
a soul of life
that I can’t see.
Within my gaze
of timeless true
a soul might be
with much to do.
The soul that’s there
might be a friend
that has passed on
around the bend.
For their own time
had come and gone
to Heaven above
to then live on.
Maybe an angel
or friend of mine
beyond my sight
of a different time.
The spirit world
holds many faces
with here and there
in many places.
Those in Heaven
might still visit true
as guiding friends
for me and you.

Beyond Our Illusions

The seconds and minutes
that gather in time
become as the moments
some bad,  some divine.
The hours collectively
joined in a day
are sometimes discerned as
a shadowy way.
Beyond our illusions
and signature trails
some might seem real
in all their details.
Within crazy dreams
of wantings gone wild
beyond our illusions
is sometimes denial.
With many viewpoints
finds many confusions
set in the storyline
beyond our illusions.

Vantage Point

Seasons of changes
become what we see,
found as a vantage point
our history.
With every turnstile
there’s something to find
within a vantage point,
it’s own design.
Sometimes our eyesight
is clouded array
beyond every vantage point
day after day.
Our daily viewing
might be down a slope
found in our vantage point
life’s telescope.
Sometimes the moments
are just but a time
within our vantage point
and its design.
So look now beyond
what times disappoint
and try to see hopeful
from your vantage point.

Lost In Mind

Amidst a time
of thinking realm
I’m lost in mind
with thought at helm.
Many patterns
thought so true
are lost in mind
with faded hue.
So many times
when past connects
and brings today
with its aspects
my lost in mind
becomes more clear
from now today
to yesteryear.
The future dates
bring their design
amidst my thoughts
of lost in mind.

Those Summer Rains

With steps of summer
walking through
the seasons bring
a life to view
Those summer rains
give life a chance
from clouds above
with song and dance.
Lightning striking
thunder sounds
those summer rains
make wet the grounds.
Scenes becoming
summer style
with ones swimming
all the while.
The warmest days
that ones complain
are found with peace
those summer rains.

Dissolving Shadows

Day by day
as time ticks on
memories
are never gone
Dissolving shadows
many try
when the past is
by and by.
Yet some shadows
still display
all our memories
day by day.
Life shows shadows
sometimes seen
as a nightmare,
maybe dream.
Today displays
a chance to change
dissolving shadows
good to gain.

Within The Darkness

The night brings sights
that eyes can’t view
within the darkness
there and to.
The darkened scenes
with stars of light
are often found
with faded sight.
A story written
in the skies
within the darkness
a surprise.
Some might fear for
what that’s hidden
within the darkness
starlight driven.
Even moonlight
shining bright
makes ones fearful
in the night.
Yet the night sky
that displays
has its magical
wonderful ways.
Filled with mysteries
to embark
the moon and stars
within the dark.

Always Wishing

Now might be
a saddened day
wishing for
another way,
but sometimes
those wishing wants
could just bring
a ton of taunts.
Always wishing
and not seeing
what that’s there
a moment fleeing,
might cause you
to lose a lot
always wishing
what should not.
Let the good times
find your gaze
no matter if
they’re smaller phase.
Let God’s blessings
to shine through
not always wishing
what’s not you.

Our Freedom Rings

To arms we came
with peace in mind
our freedom rings
what now we find.
The soldiers true
fought day and night
to give to us
a hopeful life.
Yet so many
turn away
from arms we came
to sad display.
We need remember
dead and gone
that fought for freedom
dusk to dawn.
Our freedom rings
for young and old
that lives on
as story’s told.
The feet that marched
into the war
our freedom rings
each shining star.

A Stargazers Tour

On to a journey
out through the stars
take a little tour
through Venus and Mars.
A stargazers tour
to wonderful worlds
way up in space
where starlight unfurls.
Scenes come alive
with twinkling lights
seen by a stargazer
deep in the nights.
A venture,  a path
that our skies unfold
a stargazers tour
seeks new stories told.
So many planets
that come to allure
are found so exciting
a stargazers tour.
Days seem as minutes,
then time standing still
a stargazers tour
seeks life to fulfill.
Searching the cosmos
to planets unknown
a stargazers tour
asks are we alone?

Haiku
for July 4,  2015

The oceans voices
speak out through the many waves
that sound like Heaven.

A rainstorms entrance
might show us many faces
deep within the clouds.

Unique are blessings
for we each have our own time
of which they will come.

A lonely lost soul
might lose focus on what’s good
and let life to die.

Allowing patterns
to exist in misery
could cause more trouble

Know your enemy,
but don’t let hate to evolve
into mere judgment.

Sometimes our lifestyles
become only a moment
that we’ve forgotten.

Meaningless chatter
only displays confusion
so take heed your words.

Deep within the night
a fear factor could explode
with only nightmares.

While in a moment
you might be filled with sorrow,
but God gives us peace.

Life in a nutshell
has many different styles
with some needing cracked.

Misleading people
will often make some errors
and expose themselves.

Deep in the ocean
lives the thoughts of sailing ships
that have met demise.

Countless are hours
that many will just worry
about the small things.

Various turnstiles
give their true meaning inside
and others will lie.

Allowing a storm
to live and breathe within you
might hurt ones you love.

Beyond what we see
there might be another life
existing like ours.

Borderline lifestyles
will walk the fence either way
maybe finding trouble.

Without any prayer
ones will most surely find doom,
so take time for prayer.

Lost in a moment,
a second of time might seem
like eternity.

While looking to space
the stars might seem to gossip
about existence.

Parallel time frames
might find us so different
with bad being good.

Now Days

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s late Saturday night and I decided to get
an early start on my Sunday journal being our
grandson Christian is coming over tomorrow
and I didn’t want to be stuck writing all the
while he’s here.  So,  here it is,  12:30 AM in
the morning hehehe.  This past week has been
not very eventful,  other than a little walk in
the field with Benny.  Milo just wanted to stay
inside with Judy.  I got out our weed eater agin
and I tried to get a little more done before the
rain starts again.  It’s supposed to rain again
Sunday then into the night and Monday,  then
agin on Wednesday.  I managed to get most
of the front of our house weed whacked before
not only its battery ran down,  but mine also :)
I had an asthma attack and had to make way
for my respirator.  My sneezing kicked into
overdrive as well due to my many allergies
with one of them being grass hehehe.  Yep,
I do spend a lot of time sneezing and blowing
my nose LOL.  Right now at 12:45 AM it’s
59 F degrees.  Sunday’s high is supposed to
be 60 F degrees,  so I am guessing that we
won’t need to run the AC LOL.  Of course
it might be raining all day beginning in the
noon hours hehehe.  Judy is browsing the
recipes on the net and on Facebook.  She
likes to try out new recipes.  Some turn out
quite well and others maybe not so,  but it’s
hit and miss to find us something that we
both like sometimes hehehe.  Do you recall
that 19″ monitor that I bought for my other
PC that has Windows 8?  Well,  believe it
or not,  it already quit working and I have
sent them an email to ask for a replacement.
LOL,  bought it Friday the 19th and it died
Friday the 26th.  A whole week,  WOW.
Anyways,  it’s supposed to be guaranteed
for 3 months and it never made it.  I’m sure
they will make good on the deal.  In the
mean time it’s back to the tiny 15″ screen
that I can barely make out anything with
my right eye.  Due to all of my many years
of being on the Internet and working with
PC’s I have a lot of programs that will
not work on Windows 8 and so I need my
Windows XP PC for those programs along
with the ability to send my journals which
Windows 8 will not do unless I send them
out one email at a freaking time hehehe.
When My old PC died I was forced to buy
a new PC which had Windows 8 on it and
it wasn’t until then that I found out all of
the flaws in Windows 8,  so I bought me a
refurbished Windows XP Pro off of the net
and then cleaned it to get rid of any bots or
programs that the seller might have put on
it to take control.  He beat me and started
messing with it,  but I put a stop to it quick
and reformatted and then looked for any
remains of a back door.  I am an old PC
programmer from way back,  but due to
my loss of eyesight and all I had to retire.
Many didn’t even know that I knew as
much as I do about PC’s until someone
tattled at work hehehe.  I tried to play
dumb for as long as I could because I
knew what that would procure from all
of that hehehe.  Now days,  my knowledge
is limited due my ceasing to do what my
eyesight would let me do,  but no longer
allows.  LOL,  it’s funny how so many
thought I was ignorant because I acted
silly at work.  The key word is acted LOL.
There are many among you that might
be smarter than you think.  You would
not believe how many people never knew
I wrote poetry,  but they knew I wrote
songs hehehe.  Put 2 and 2 together :)
Yes,  there are so many judged simply
by their appearance and not given any
chance to show you what they can do.
We do that with religions and colors.
Just because they look or act different
than you doesn’t make them any better
or worse than you.  We need to quit our
labeling people as bad due to a situation
that involved their color,  race or religion.
We are people with unique personalities.
Though some might look the same,  it
doesn’t mean that they are.  God gave
us each our differences so that we could
further our growth.  If everyone was
the same,  then growth would stagnate.
Life has a funny way of repeating itself
when we fail to learn the lessons.  Let’s
cease the name calling and labeling
people.  We are God’s children and I’m
sure He doesn’t want His children to
bicker about who’s better or worse.
Find common ground to at least make
some peace.  I love you all and I don’t
care if you’re orange,  black or gray :)
Well it’s 57 F degrees now at 1:20 AM.
I reckon it’s gonna be a nice night for
sleeping if either one of us ever go to
bed LOL.  Judy is busy at writing her
book.  She said she want’s me to proof
read it when she’s done,  but it looks
like she has a long way to go hehehe.
She’s not writing a small book.  She
said it’s going to have 90 chapters in it
and she’s about ready to start sending
me a few at a time to proof read.  She’s
my little author and I’m proud of her.
So,  this is what goes on around the
Pearce’s Place hehehe.  We spend time
with Benny and Milo and watch TV
together.  I can’t wait till we get our
bicycles and the boys doggy trailer :)
We’ll head out riding carrying our
cameras with us to stop and take a
few pictures ever so often.  It will be
great exercise and maybe we can
lose a little weight.  I have about 60
pounds that I would like to lose LOL.
Of course I might not lose any,  but
at least I’ll be getting some exercise
and enjoying it with my honeypie and
our boys :)  So,  what else is there to
talk about?  Hmm nothing comes to
mind,  so I guess 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.  And so,  it’s away I go to that
little place that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may
have found a decent title that I have
not used yet and now after checking
I see that my guess is right hehehehe.
I hope it makes at least a little sense :)
Here goes…

Now Days

When looking back in years of time
now days might just discover
that we’ve gone repeating ourselves
as our errors we uncover.
Now days with our actions made
tomorrow might be found
with judgment on each other
when our thoughts all come around.
Soon will be the end of times
with no chance to save your soul
so why continue acting like
you’ve paid the greatest toll.
We all have our own problems
that we may not let you see,
for there’s times humiliation
that is found in you and me.
So now days let God’s blessings
to be found in how you act
while trying to cease the judging
what might not be matter fact.
Sometimes our personalities
will disperse a different sight
and what might seem wrong to you
might turn out being right.

So,  there ya go hehehe.  I know,  it’s not
one of my best,  but I have had all of this
on my mind for some time now.  I’m tired
of people critiquing others simply because
they’re different.  We are all different and
that’s how God made us.  It’s differences
that should bond us together,  not push us
apart.  Don’t be so quick to judge that guy
with long hair or a different color,  because
they might turn out to be angels.  OK,  off
of my preaching hehehe.  Back to Earth :)
Judy and I are listening to Moodscapes
on TV.  It’s peaceful music without any
words.  I seem to do my best writing while
listening to it.  Judy also loves to listen
to it.  We sleep to it quite often.  OK,  so
she sleeps to it.  I spend most of my time
running back and forth to the restroom
and when I’m not doing that I’m trying
to ignore my aching arthritis hehehehe
long enough to grab a few winks LOL.
That’s life.  At least I can still enjoy
my time with my Judy and our boys.
Also I enjoy spending time with her
family.  Maybe one day my daughter
and granddaughter will make it up
this way.  So,  I guess it’s time for me
to begin my search for that hardly
elusive off switch,  but not before I
tell you what I tell you almost every
week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yep,  10 poems
with 1 of them being a Christmas
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,
where is that darned off switch this
time?  Before I begin looking I’ll
give ya a chance to make sure that
you’re hidden.  Remember my friends,
Jesus loves you and we do too. OK,
here I come.  OH for Heaven’s sake,
and I even gave you a little more
time to find a better hiding spot.
Look at you.  I can see you plain as
day right behind my respirator LOL :)
Gotcha  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Undecided

Without some direction
of which way to go
and when you should turn
with how that you flow,
you might discover
a storm brewing chided
from all those time frames
found undecided.
Sometimes some choosing
of a pathway to find
can become a journey
of a little peace of mind.
Yet undecided moments
can often be good,
for then you might later
choose what that you should.
Don’t let your decisions
to lead you astray,
for sometimes undecided
can see through the gray.
Undecided moments
might one day choose
the right or wrong journey
to win or to lose.

Sunshine Summer

The time when rains
come pouring down
a sunshine summer
found all around.
The scenes become
assorted arrays
of sunshine summer
with day after days.
Prismatic views
of now and agin
a sunshine summer
seems without end.
With each day found
and minutes thereto
the sunshine summer
is found within view.
Found after spring
are moments of wonder
seen as the days
of sunshine summer.

Without A Trace

Footprints that we’ve made
in footsteps of time
might display so wrongly
what was on our mind.
Facts without a trace
might be misunderstood
and seen as just moments
that were not so good.
So many see pictures
that liars have drawn
and without a trace
is truth dusk to dawn.
Footprints of missteps
that are not so true
might be found on a day
what’s clearer to view.
For someone’s footsteps
might show on their face
what many didn’t see then
without a trace.

Never Stands Still

Time is a tick-tock
that never stands still
a watch or a wall clock
has time to fulfill.
The painted emotions
of minutes we see
might seem as the oceans
to you or to me.
Time is a pathway
to now and tomorrow
a good or a bad day
that minutes can’t borrow.
Often our desires
are dreams to come true
which often acquires
a nightmarish view.
Truth of a moment
might show some goodwill
with sought atonement
for never stands still.

Life Changing Space

Now is a journey
to another place
found within heartbeats of
life changing space.
A moment a minute
that time moves along
becomes as a porthole
with blessings sweet song.
With life changing space
beyond what we see
the pathways are found
what will be will be.
The echoes ones hear
might seem as to fade
as time moves along
with moments we’ve made.
Our heartbeats united
can show ones God’s grace
in the times that we see as
life changing space.

A Single Spark

A tiny flake
of snow that falls
shows to me
how Christmas calls
A single spark
of joy for me
is found within
a Christmas tree.
Twinkling lights
found here and there
displays peace
God’s love and care
Blessings remembered
now and then
are Christmastime
of time agin.
Those memories
that I embark
are Christmastime
a single spark.

The Grasses Grow

The winter breezes
and snow of white
will hide the grasses
day and night.
Beneath the snow
is frozen ground
with the grasses
so profound.
Held within the
grip of winter
the grass is found
beneath tormentor.
Yet when winter’s
lost its sail
spring is found
with its detail.
The signs beneath
the melting snow
is found with life
the grasses grow.

Beyond The Stars

The night comes alive
with lights all aglow
and depth of wonder
that will flow.
For in the stars
found in the night
there is so much
beyond our sight.
So many planets
that we can’t count
with life that might then
just surmount.
Life that’s beyond
anything we know
beyond the stars
might surely grow.
So many beings
of wildest dreams
beyond the stars
could be extremes.
Life so abundant
ahead of us too
beyond the stars
is life old and new.
Maybe much wiser
than we have perceived
we might find ones
with more they’ve achieved.
Beyond the stars
and beyond our sight
we might find ones
that share our delight.

A Raindrop Falls

A drive to town
on summers eve
brings a raindrop
to perceive.
A raindrop falls
as clouds give way
to another
rainy day.
The windshield wipers
swipe the glass
taking rain
with every pass.
A raindrop falls
to detonate
and make a splash
to procreate.
Seasons summer
time recalls
a drive to town,
a raindrop falls.

Vines Of Light

Heavens porthole
opens wide
allowing souls
to come inside.
Vines of light
to surely climb
up to Heaven’s
peace of mind.
Scenes found displayed
up above
vines of light
lead to its love.
Heavens stairway
displays true
a passageway
for me and you.
Hands of Glory
found just right
death of flesh
to vines of light.

Haiku
for June 26,  2015

Tomorrow’s journey
begins one step at a time
from now and today.

Looks of a liar
often find themselves disguised
in their own two eyes.

With only a smile
you can change someone’s outlook
and make them to smile.

Looking to Heaven
you might see a cloud float by
that looks like a friend.

So many desires
are not necessary needs,
and lead to trouble.

Grandeurs delusion
is often our perception
of a fantasy.

The leaves on the trees
display seasonal journey’s
through their many colors.

Descriptive moments
often find themselves confused
due to circumstance.

Losing direction
gives way for new desires
with lessons to learn.

A second in time
finds many without someone
and no one knowing.

Often ones sadness
lives hidden from everyone
while they fade away.

Storms will find rainbows
hidden in troubled moments
with later to see.

A bright sunny day
might have a chance for raindrops
as some clouds blow in.

Searching for yourself
could set off some discoveries
that you never knew.

When looking above
open up your mind to things
that could be out there.

God’s love holds firmly
as we continue our path
with our decisions.

Life is a turnstile
that finds a lot of shadows
within its own self.

Beyond what we see
might be a much larger sight
that we’re not aware,

Lost within ourselves
can make others turn away
and leave you with you.

Disruptive people
can become a firestorm
inflaming others.

Summertime’s highlights
are often hidden sadness
for ones wanting more.

Because of someone
becomes reasons of others
and not their own choice.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
& Happy Fathers Day

It’s been raining all morning long and it looks
as though it’s gonna rain most of the week :)
I got my 19 inch monitor in the Mail Thursday
so I unplugged the little 15 inch one. We might
give it to Judy’s brother if he ever gets to come
home.  My Windows 8 PC was really hard to
see with that tiny 15 inch monitor due to my loss
of eyesight.  I still prefer using my Windows XP,
but there are many things nowadays that will
not work on XP,  so I use it for those programs.
I have a 28 inch monitor on my Windows XP PC.
Windows 8 is no good for doing my emails being
it does not do grouped emails or at least it will
not on this computer LOL.  If I used it to send
my journals,  I would be forced to have to send
one email at a freaking time which would take
me for an eternity hehehe.  But I have signed
up for the free Windows 10 upgrade from the
Windows 8.1.  So hopefully they’ve fixed many
of the flaws that are in Windows 8 and 8.1 :)
We shall see,  but it won’t be available for
download until July 29.  Until then I will just
do as I have been with Windows 8.1 flipping
back and forth between PC’s LOL.  I have
managed to copy many of my family pictures
and videos to my Windows XP so that just
in case I have a problem again,  I have them
on both PC’s :)  Yes,  the computer is my life.
It’s what helps to keep me sane along with
all of my other activities which I might add
need my PC’s to be able to save and share,
so I guess I’m stuck hehehe.  OK,  what else
is there to chat about?  Judy finished up with
Milo’s haircut using the petstation and she
then took it in the bathroom and gave both
of them a bath.  One at a time of course :)
So,  what else is going on around this place?
Actually it’s been sort of quiet around here
aside from a few barking sounds coming
from the boys hehehe.  I got our old weed
eater out and whacked as much as I was
able to before my body started hurting so
bad that I couldn’t do it anymore.  Our little
weedeater isn’t made for this tall stuff,  so
I was only able to do so much.  Hopefully
our landlord will hire somebody soon to do
what I was unable to do.  I just wanted to
get the weeds cut from around our front
steps and around Judy’s flowers as well as
much of the front of the house I could trim.
My old shoulders,  back and legs would not
let me do too much at once.  I had to keep
stopping to try to ease the pain and also get
to where I could breathe again.  My asthma
was continually flaring up making me gasp
for air.  I think I’ll let our landlord take care
of the rest of it.  I’ll end up in the hospital if
I’m not careful and I hate hospitals hehehe.
Judy has gone with her sister Barbara up to
Eagle Lake Maine to see her brother Ricky
and his daughter and her husband are going
to meet them there.  So,  today for Fathers
Day it’s just me and the boys.  Judy did make
us omelets for breakfast before she headed
out and no telling when she will get home.
It’s about 90 miles north of us which could
be a 2 hour or more drive one way.  Benny
is in the living room keeping a look out as
he does always hehehe.  Milo is in here with
me.  Benny might end up in here a little bit
later on in the day.  Especially when he gets
tired of waiting for mom to get home hehehe.
She might get home earlier than I think,  but
time will tell.  This is Fathers Day for me :(
It’s not much different than any other day.
All of my family is in Texas and unable to
come up to see me.  Judy and I are buying
us a couple of bicycles next month so that
we can ride them down to Cameron’s and
back for some exercise.  Judy has ordered
a two dog doggy trailer to hook up to the
back of one of the bikes and bring them
along with us on our rides.  We’ll see how
that works LOL.  That’s the highlights of
our next months venture.  We might head
out one day soon on a picture taking drive.
We never know which direction we will
head out until maybe the night before :)
The weather always plays a part in the
drive.  If it’s raining or something,  it will
wait for another day.  So only time will
tell.  Until then,  I’ll continue doing as I
do each time we drive to town or around.
I’ll aim my camera out the car window
and snap away LOL.  I always wrap the
strap around my wrist just in case she
hits a bump and well you know hehehe.
Don’t wanna lose my old camera.  Judy
bought it for me a decade ago and it still
works great.  of course I’ve had to use
tape to keep things from falling off of it.
It has been on some journeys hehehehe.
I’ve dropped it in the snow and almost
lost it,  but it survived.  Of course in the
wintertime with subzero temperatures
the batteries run down fast,  so I’ve always
gotta keep some charged ones handy in
my pockets.  Today’s high is supposed
to be 55,  but so far it’s not gotten above
54 F degrees.  It’s supposed to be in
lower 60’s to lower 70’s F all week long
on through to next week.  Yep,   this is
the way summer should be.  Of course
it makes it a tad cool for swimming :)
It might warm up a bit more a little
later on in the summertime days,  but
nothing like the summers in Texas LOL.
Judy had to bring her flowers back in
the house Thursday night because the
temperature was dropping down near
freezing.  It never made it below 35 F,
but better safe than sorry I always say.
All of her flowers are blooming and
they are so pretty.  I’m glad I was able
to save the one that got hit by the frost
a few weeks ago.  I trimmed off the
dead limbs and it allowed for new life
to sprout.  I can see where God has
had His Hands blessing the moments.
I might be sad and alone at times due
my being so far away,  but God gives
me instances that put a smile on my
face.  Life is guaranteed to have a few
problems,  but through those problems
strength is born.  Let God help to make
you stronger through your journeys.
Find the joy in the small things.  They
are the things such as a gentle breeze
or a calling bird.  Now I believe 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 me a good word
or phrase that I can use for the title
for today’s brand new poem.  So it’s
away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may
have found a decent title and it looks
like I haven’t used it yet,  so here goes.
I hope it makes sense hehehe.

Until Then

My time as a boy
grown into a man
joined with my dad
as a God given plan.
For until then
the minutes ticked on
found until then
what time brought along.
My dad taught lessons
I often ignored.
but yet still learned them
with my life explored.
My life until then
as a young little boy
was found with my daddy
and filled with much joy.
I grew up to see what
he meant then each day
with things that he told me
in his wise little way.
Yet I until then
just sought with a smile
what I learned later
was a pain staking mile.
My daddy had wisdom
that I soon heard clear
what I until then
saw not so sincere.
Dad I now thank you
for all that you said,
because all your words
were life giving bread.
You taught me how Jesus
had saved us from sin
and how we were Hell bent
from times until then.
Daddy I love you
and thank you so much
for giving me moments
that my heart can touch.

I love you Daddy and I miss you
although you are always with me
in my heart,  mind and eyes <3

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and maybe
even the poem hehehe.  Yes,  my dad helped
me to become the person that I am today and
he is still with me in spirit guiding me.  Just
because the body’s died doesn’t mean that he
is gone.  The spirit lives on in Heaven and can
be anywhere to watch and guide us as angels.
You might not see them,  but they are there.
I talk to my dad all the time and I can often
hear his words in my head speaking to me
as he has in the past.  OK,  so what else is
there to tell ya that I haven’t already told
ya?  Oh yea,  keep my good friend Rachel
Palmer’s husband Brian in your prayers.
Brian is a good man.  He has been stricken
with cancer in his brain and elsewhere in
his body.  They are good Christian folk.
Ok,  so I guess that’s about all I can think
of to tell you aside from 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 of
a Christmassy style hehehe.  Maybe next
week.  I also wrote 22 more haiku for
all of the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you 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 Fathers Day
and a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
where is that darned off switch hiding
this week?  I think I see it hiding behind
the new monitor.  Yep,  it just couldn’t
stay still hehehe.  It looked like it was
doing a little soft shoe back there LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Hearing Myself

Words of a hurry
might come out so wrong
and not be saying
what then does belong.
Hearing myself talking
brings clear what I’ve said
while often I let things
to go to my head.
We all have our moments
that time might display
words found so wrongful
of one distraught day.
I know that sometimes
I might speak despair,
but I will then later
let it find some prayer.
God gives us blessings
that I might not find
but hearing myself will
make clearer my mind.
Giving my thinking
a much better view
while hearing myself
teaches what not to do.

Harvest Of Time

Step by step
some continue on
while watching others
until they are gone.
The essence of meanings
becomes understood
one by one
not what that it should.
Our harvest of time
shows moments we’ve patterned
sometimes with rhythms
of time frames all shattered.
Our echoes might find us
just doing the same
step by step
found so insane.
It might be found
our chose design
while we continue
our harvest of time.

A Brief Encounter

The seconds pass
while sounding clear
a brief encounter
of yesteryear.
With musical sounds
with harmonized voice
becomes the view
that now I rejoice.
Those memories
of sounds so sweet
a brief encounter
came so complete.
My mind still finds
those distant days
so long ago
those youthful ways.
A brief encounter
with musical minds
is memorized
from distant times.

I Love You Dad

The things we did
so long ago
you and I
what times bestow
now are displaying
as me and you
together found
in things I do.
You brought me joy
with words so kind
even those moments
you spanked my behind.
I love you dad
and you’ll always be
deep in my heart
right here with me.
You were the light
when things were bad
and I want you to know
I love you dad.

Rain Showers in June

Storms come a raining
from clouds overhead
and pour down the waters
in a little riverbed.
The waters refresh all
that needs that June rain,
but so many people
just watch and complain.
The flowers that blossom
need rain to fall down
and then to soak into
the moments dry ground.
Rain showers in June
are found as a breath
waters to scare off
the dry bitter death.
Helping the flowers
and trees sing a tune
joyful with life from
rain showers in June.

Without Worry

Walking boldly
where you go
sometimes leads to
Hell below.
Without worry
ones might be
found within
regretfully.
Sometimes worry
can be good
to make you do
the things you should.
Yet don’t worry
about it all,
because sometimes
it’s just the call.
Things will happen
where you go
even when you
worry so.
But  you need to
look and see
what might happen
worry free.
Without worry
you might find
what you should of
kept confined.

The Simpler Times

The years long ago
when I was a lad
I often would see
ones acting so bad.
Kids way back when
still did as they do.
Some doing good things
and some not so true.
The simpler times
weren’t simple at all,
for within that time
the problems would call.
The years long ago
we might not see clear,
for the simpler times
were not yesteryear.
Each decade comes
with its own moments minds
seen in the future
to be simpler times.

My Daddy My Friend

I still remember
my daddy and me
walking together
throughout history.
Me playing bongos
and him seeing true
the signature found
in things that I do.
He saw me writing
and heard my voice
while he would always
show his rejoice.
My daddy my friend
would say that’s real good
all of the words
that he understood.
He was a great daddy
and also my friend
as a father and son
that never would end.
He’s now in Heaven
and I know he can see
me now still writing
what God gave to me.
My daddy my friend
will forever be found
reflecting in my eyes
when I look around.
He taught me of Jesus
and how He is love
and my daddy my friend
is with Him above.
I’ll never forget you
and your smiling face
my daddy my friend
that taught me God’s grace.
So now on this day
that defines you so true
Happy Fathers day daddy
from me now to you.

Laugh At Yourself

Times we you stumble
and do silly stuff
laugh at yourself
and learn to be tough.
Don’t let the dumb things
that you’ve surely done
to cause you to pout
each seasonal sun.
See all the dumb things
that you do each day
and laugh at yourself
in a smiling array.
Often when storm clouds
of dumb things we do
come out just raining
on me and on you
laughter can brighten up
each stormy frown,
so laugh at yourself
when storms come around.

Tomorrow’s Today

When now has no patience
for what’s needing done
tomorrow might also
display the same sun.
While waiting for better
you might misconceive
what that is standing
in moments you breathe.
Tomorrow’s today
might be of the same
displayed a bit later
what you did not claim.
Procrastinators journey
begins with a moment
that in the future
might seek for atonement.
For often our waiting
to do what we should
finds us tomorrow
a worse neighborhood.
So do not just put off
what’s needing your way
or it might be worse then
tomorrow’s today.

Haiku
for June 20,  2015

Behind every man
holds a mother and father
that patterned his life.

Peace is a moment
that exists in a time frame
that we often miss.

Within tomorrow
holds the actions of today
and our yesterdays.

No one’s right always
for right to you might be wrong
and needing lessons.

An uncloudy day
might soon dissipate from view
displaying artwork.

While many look on,
a person in need awaits
with God watching you.

When breathing a breath
that breath might become shortened
as our time finds end.

Looking for true love
could find you in much despair
not seeing clearly.

What’s displayed outside
might not be the same inwards,
so look passed the sight.

Motivation of fear
makes ones to forget themselves
as truth is exposed.

Lucky is two ways
as the moment might explode
to be unlucky.

A bird flying high
lets the wind fill up its wings
keeping it aloft.

Without a brushstroke
a painter creates a scene
that we cannot see.

A brisk breeze in June
makes the leaves on the trees sway
and make rustling sounds.

Nighttime’s signature
is found in the starlight
and moon up above.

In mornings window
holds visions of bright sunlight
and maybe some rain.

The needs of many
are greater than that of one,
but one still matters.

Life in the fast lane
might conclude to destruction
as hurry brings pain.

The lawnmower man
cuts the grass in the daylight,
with headlights at night.

An old wrinkled man
shows his age through the lessons
in his walk of life.

Creating a time
that doesn’t really exist
might just be a dream.

Mindset emotions
can cause you future problems,
so allow some change.

Truly A Blessing

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a great week gone by.  Judy’s sister is
doing better.  The doctors found out that she has
vertigo.  So,  it’s not the flue or anything and it
will soon pass.  We had rain off and on for most
of the passed week,  but it’s been sunny most of
the day today.  Yesterday was a bit cloudy,  but
it wasn’t raining.  Our grandson Christian came
and spent the day with us Saturday and then he
wanted to spend the night.  His mom said OK so
he slept on the recliner being our spare room is
still a tad cluttered LOL.  It’s 66 F degrees right
now and it’s supped to get up to 69 F.  The week
is supposed to be with temps of upper 60’s to mid
70’s.  Not too bad.  It sure helps with our light
bill not having to run our heaters although we
have run our portable AC once or twice on the
days that it got up in the 80’s.  Judy’s petstation
arrived the other day and I put it together.  We
used it yesterday to give the boys there much
needed haircuts.  Benny is looking thin now as
we sheered enough hair off of him to create a
carbon copy of him hehehe of course only doll
form without life.  We started on Milo,  but the
battery on the sheers started dying.  So they’re
being recharged.  We might begin tomorrow
with touch ups on Benny and attempt to finish
Milo.  We’re not sure how well the petstation
is going to work giving them a bath indoors,
but it will work great outdoors aside from the
fact that the water we have is freaking ice cold
and there’s no hot water outside hehehe.  We
have an artesian well and the water can give
you frostbite because it be just like ice water.
I have yet to of dug out the boys kiddy pool
and our picnic table.  The doghouse is below
it all.  I will try and getter done this week :)
The boys don’t care,  because so far they
have not shown much anxiety about getting
in the pool,  but who knows,  they might get
the urge one day hehehe.  So,  what else is
going on around the Pearce’s place?  Well
to be honest,  it hasn’t been that exciting.
Of course Judy had been spending many of
the days over at her sisters house helping
out when her sister Trudy was not feeling
so well.  She would be over there from 9 AM
to 11:30 PM,  which left me and the boys to
hang out together.  You could tell that Benny
was missing mom,  because he would go wild
every time he thought he heard our car LOL.
I’m glad that’s passed and so are the boys :)
Milo would lie in the floor in here with me
and wait for me to get up and head to the
front door.  Of course often I was only
getting up to go to the toilet and he would
park himself in front of the bathroom door
while waiting for me to come out.  Heck,
he does that no matter hehehe.  Judy has
gone over to her brothers house to do a bit
of cleaning.  Christian is in the living room
playing on his cell phone.  Judy told him
not to disturb me while I was writing,  so
he’s hanging out in there until I finish.  Milo
has come back in here with me and Benny
is in the living room with Christian.  I fixed
us EGGO waffles,  eggs and sausage for
breakfast.  We still have no clue of when
or if Judy’s brother will be going home.
His health has been pretty bad.  Keep him
in your prayers.  Judy and I are doing
pretty well.  We’re hoping to be able to
buy us some bicycles next month so that
we can go for rides for a little exercise
maybe down to Cameron’s Market and
back ever so often.  So,  hopefully we can
find us some good bikes that we can afford.
We also want to buy a doggy trailer that
we can hook to the bikes so that the boys
can come with us :)  She’s found one
for 99 dollars that will hold two dogs :)
Anyways,  that’s our plans as they stand
at this moment.  All of Judy’s flowers are
looking good.  Our landlord managed to
get most of the yard mowed finally using
a little riding lawn mower.  I bet his butt
was tingling after doing all the mowing
on that little thing.  I guess his tractor is
broken.  Normally he uses his big tractor
to do the mowing in the field.  I’ve gotta
get the weedeater and do a little whacking
around the front of our house though,  but
he got most of the grass.  I have to weed
eat in short strides,  being my back starts
aching and my shoulder starts throbbing
if I try to do too much.  It took me forever
the other day just to weed eat around the
flowers LOL.  Oh well,  it’ll get done one
way or day or another.  Judy and I are
happy where we live.  We enjoy being
able to walk out in the field with the boys
and watch the sun rise and set without
the contamination of the city lights and
hustle and bustle.  I have always loved
living in the country.  I can remember
the days when I was a little boy and we
lived in Dallas with neighbors all around
and not much privacy.  When my mom
and dad moved us down to the country at
South Tawakanii near Lake Tawakanii
I all of the sudden saw things that I had
never seen while in Oak Cliff.  I saw
trees,  and birds that I had never ever
seen before.  I found I loved exploring
and I spent many days traipsing through
the woods and learning how to crawdad
fish and for those of you that don’t know
what a crawdad is,  it’s a crayfish  We
call em crawdads down in Texas hehehe.
Yes,  after a few years of living in the
country,  I found that I preferred it to
living in the city and being that one of
my passions is photography,  it makes
for a great place to find God’s beauty.
The city life tends to cover up the sights
that God put here to enjoy.  I love the
winter mornings looking out over the
snow covered field seeing the glistening
trees of snow and ice.  And on the fall
days,  the colors of the trees turn into
paintings that are God’s work of art.
There is so much to see out here in the
country that the city life does not see.
I am so happy to have been able to see
all of this beauty.  There are so many
that forget to look around and find the
beauty.  They can only see the burdens.
Yes there are burdens to living in the
country,  but there are also things that
make it all worth while if you would just
take the time to look.  The city life also
has its good points,  but not enough for
me to move back.  Of course if I had
to,  I’m sure I would.  I have before :).
But I thank God for all that He has
given Judy and I.  These boys of ours
are truly a blessing and our children
and grandchildren make life that much
more abundant with joy.  Thank You
God for all that You have done for us.
You are The Greatest.  Through Your
Son Jesus we have found true love and
forgiveness for each others follies.  We
have grown to be a true unity as we
walk together in life enjoying what all
that You give.  I guess it’s time for me
to be ceasing my rambling mode and
begin looking back on 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 may
have found a decent title and it looks
like I haven’t used it yet,  so here goes.
I hope it comes out making sense LOL.

Truly A Blessing

Scenes found before me
as artworks rejoice
speak out with flavors
of God’s greatest voice.
The sounds in the distance
of birds chirping wild
are truly a blessing
which life has compiled.
Each moments painted
with brushstrokes of time
that displays its artwork
so truly divine.
Some minutes gather
leaving sections to see
as truly a blessing
in our history.
Yet many moments will
come into view
and shower those blessings
on me and on you.
Truly a blessing
is now and a while
as Lord God has painted
a place for a smile.
Sometimes the artwork
might not be so clear,
but later on surely
you’ll see yesteryear.
So many find their
own sights just repressing,
but later see clearly
what’s truly a blessing.
So take time and look now
and see what that’s there,
for truly a blessing
is found everywhere.

So,  how did I do?   LOL did it make any sense
to you?  I hope it did.  I hope you enjoyed all of
my rambling.  Well Milo has had to go out and
potty once since I began writing.  Benny is still
in the living room with Christian.  Judy should
be home soon.  We took a few pictures of the
boys as we were cutting their hair and I might
put a few in the stationery.  I also took a little
trip through the back roads one day last week
and found a few good sights to take pictures of.
All in all,  the passed week was pretty good.
I’m looking forward to next week to see what
God has lined up for us :)  Oh yea,  last week
Milo almost choked to death on a treat that
he didn’t chew up and I had to do the heimlich
maneuver on him.  He coughed it up and later
was feeling better.  That boy tries to inhale
his food rather than chewing, but I think he
might of learned something this time.  We’ve
noticed him chewing the treats hehehe.  He
also seems to be a lot more close to me since
I saved his life.  I think he knows what I did.
We love our boys and don’t want anything
to happen to them.  Both Judy and I went
into hysterics when Milo was falling to the
floor unable to breath or swallow.  I just
did the only thing I knew to do which was
stand him up and slap his sides and that
made him cough up the treat.  Anyways,
he’s back to his ornery self.  Later that
night he was playing with Benny.  They
were playing chase through the house.
So,  I guess I need to stop myself before
I get into rambling mode again because
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 of them
being sort of Christmassy.  I also once
again wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to be searching for that dad gum
off switch that tries once in a while
to find a decent hiding spot,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend and a truly blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Now,  where is that
confounded off switch hiding this
week?  I see ya you little varmint.
Hiding behind my nose spray again
huh!  It didn’t work for ya last time
did it,  so why try it again.  You do
know I have allergies and sinus
trouble don’t you hehehehehehehe?
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Beyond My Thoughts

With minutes of wonder
my thoughts becomes found
seeing the beginnings
as I look around.
Beyond my thoughts
holds timeless beginnings
found with the pages
of so many endings.
Stages of footsteps
within every stride
beyond my thoughts
has a look inside.
Eyes opened widely
just seeking to find
time frames portrayals
within my own mind.
Ticking as a time clock
I’m often lost
within my own thinking
beyond my thoughts.

Late Nights Serenade

The songs in the night sky
are so greatly displayed
the winds blowing briskly
late nights serenade.
Songs of sweet wonder
with echoes I hear
as serenading magic
that comes through so clear.
The scenes in the night sky
reflect what that’s heard
late nights serenade
with word after word.
An essence of beauty
with starlight that shines
as a song that appears
with so many designs.
The moon comes a glowing
like yellow lemonade
found in the hours of
late nights serenade.

Moon Over Tomorrow

As daylight meets nighttime
with minutes to find
the night sky displays a
wondrous design.
Stars that are twinkling
and moonlight to glow,
the scenes are found changing
creating a show.
Often the minutes will
find their own place.
Moon over tomorrow
is filled with such grace.
Looking at the night sky
ones search through the stars
maybe seeing Venus
and maybe seeing Mars.
The moon over tomorrow
holds keys to tonight
dreams found displaying
what might turn out right.
Yet as the night sky
is found painted black
the moon over tomorrow
keeps starlight intact.
Clouds blowing briskly
up high above you
will give way to scenery
of starlight to view.
Then as the moonlight
peeks through time agin
the stage is being set
for another to begin.
The moon over tomorrow
holds time frames intact
painting up the sky
in a night sky of black.

When I Am Alone

While my time is counted
and time ticks away
I find that I’m sometimes
just stood in a daze.
Looking up above me
watching clouds blow by
when I am alone
just wondering why.
Seeking for answers
with each scene I see
I sometimes drift off to
a mindful set free.
When I am alone
I might wonder true
what is my purpose
to do what I do.
My heart might find rhythm
through all that I’ve known
with God still beside me
when I am alone.

Welcome The Day

As you are awakened
and mornings sun shines
welcome the day
with much better designs.
Lose all your doubting
that yesterday’s shown
a let today find you
with much better known.
Welcome the day
with a great big smile
and it might turn into
a much better mile.
Let frowns of time
to now fade away
as you are awakened
and welcome the day.
Look in the mirror
and say I love you
and that person reflecting
might just say it too.
Welcome the day
with a little cup of cheer
and maybe it might then
turn to sincere.
Let your frowning face
of yesterdays way
find you with cheerful
to welcome the day.

My Snowy Memories

Within my journeys
of winters detail
I find I’m thinking
of snowflakes set sail.
Snowy memories
Christmastimes view
scenes found displaying
what I wish were true.
Yet now it’s springtime
with rain and sunshine
causing my dreaming
to show wintertime.
Christmas songs playing
on the old radio
some about Santa
and some about snow.
My snowy memories
come as a cool breeze
white snow as glitter
on all of the trees.
Those wonderful lights
that twinkle and shine
my snowy memories
of that wondrous time.
I often will daydream
and see in my eyes
some snowflakes falling
down from the skies.
Those snowy memories
bring me to a place
with Christmas type mindful
and a smile on my face.
Joyful is Christmas
with snowflakes that fall
found as a moment
that stands out so tall.
My snowy memories
help me to smile
when I am facing
a moments time trial.

On A Bluebirds Wings

Flying in the sky
above so many things
I wish I could be
on a bluebirds wings.
A breeze found beneath me
the wings that fly
keep us found airborne
up high in the sky.
I wish I could be
on its wings way up there
flying in the sky
like a little puff of air.
On a bluebirds wings
with each passing day
just passing the time
in a wonderful way.
Flying through the clouds
as a meadow above
I’d find a blue sky
so filled full of love.
On a bluebirds wings
I would hover and fly
if I could have my dream
of a moment in the sky.

Swinging Doors

Various lifestyles
become as repeated
as swinging doors
of troubled times seeded.
Always with one hand
holding what’s done
makes swinging doors
what’s always begun.
Let loose those bad times
and learn what to do
and let all those doorways
to see what’s anew.
Swinging doors only
show what all you know
often bad places
that you need not go.
Learn to move forward
and let loose of shores
found as the problems
as your swinging doors.

Springtime Has Sprung

The flowers are blooming
and trees are all green
with meadows showing
each wonderful scene.
Blessings filled glimmers
of sunshine’s array.
Springtime has sprung
with a wonderful day.
Season filled portholes
with colors so bright
bring forth the beauty
of each day and night.
Springtime has sprung
with its own true glory
writing a novel
of a colorful story.
Springtime’s beginning
is sometimes what’s seen
as that of wonderful
found in a dream.
It gives the seasonal
songs that are sung
by all the birdies
when springtime has sprung.

Come With Me

Take a trip with me
to a place far away
with a seasonal stage
from April to May.
Come with me now
and look at the sights
and see all the things
that my life delights.
Take my hand now
and fly off and see
all of the things
that God gave for free.
Lose your perception
of negative things.
Come with me now
and hear birdies sing.
Listen to the wind blow
and tree leaves that sway.
Come with me now
and see a brighter day.
Let God to guide you
as you let Him to flow.
Come with me now
and go where I go.
This trip is a journey
through writing you see
so read it with peaceful
and then come with me.
Look for God’s blessings
through words of release.
Come with me now
and seek for His Peace.
Lose your perception
of negative things
and listen to God now
as a little birdie sings.

Haiku
for June 12,  2015

With but just a thought
you can change how things work out
through how they’re perceived.

Lessons come with time
and often time is hurried
creating nightmares.

Looking for trouble
might find you with some problems
you did not expect.

With every doorway
there is a knob to be turned
and choice to walk in.

Today is on time
as it brings forth beginnings
for our tomorrow’s.

We might see darkness,
but light awaits to be seen
through our choices.

When now fades from sight
look for the future to find
and you might find it.

Ripples on a pond
could be from a passing duck
or a splashing fish.

The oceans waves roll
as they serenade the day
of a sandy shore.

Meanings will get lost
as our words are confusion
and not understood.

Lost within a dream
might display a few problems
as life comes to light.

Raindrops of springtime
pitter-patter their flavors
upon our rooftop.

Seasonal doorways
give way for many stages
as changes of time.

Beyond our thinking
there might be a better way
that we might not see.

Love is a story
written within a heartbeat
that God has given.

Various lifestyles
display worry and anger
where others will pray.

Yesterday is gone
so use what good that you learned
and let the rest go.

The past is the past
but we need remember it
as a good teacher.

The rain sings a song
as it dances on our house
with a peaceful tune.

Having had problems
doesn’t mean you’re a loser.
It means you’re learning.

Hearing a bird sing
on a beautiful spring day
puts peace in my heart.

Life is but a time
that comes and goes with minutes
that only God knows.

We Are Human

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well we survived yet another month and June
has taken on its stride.  The weather is still a
bit on the chilly side during the nights,  but it’s
OK by me,  because I prefer cold to hot hehehe.
The raining has calmed down a bit,  but it will
start up again soon I’m fairly sure.  Possibly
tomorrow being my weather program’s saying
a 100% chance Monday afternoon and eve.
I bought Judy some more flowers.  The ones
that got hit by frost are seeming to still be alive.
We had another frost warning last night and
I brought all of the flowers inside to keep them
from getting frozen.  Yep,  spring up this ways
ain’t nothing like I remember in Texas hehehe.
Today’s high is supposed to be 70 F degrees,
but we shall see being right now at 12 noon
it’s 62 F degrees.  Mondays high is supposed
to be 58 F degrees.  It looks like the weather
doesn’t know what to do LOL.  OH well,  it’s
better than 90 and 100 degree weather like
they’re having in Texas and elsewhere LOL.
So,  what else is happening up this ways???
Hmm,  well we had a moose to come visit us
the other day.  I was letting Milo out to go
potty and there Mr. Moose was standing
looking directly at me hehehehe.  I ran and
got my camera and took a few pictures of
him.  We got our car registered Wednesday
and then had it inspected Thursday so it’s
good for another year.  Yep the Phantom
is ready for some more photo drives LOL.
Yes we call our car the Phantom because
that’s the color of it,  Phantom White :)
The boys are about due another haircut.
Both of them have so much hair they can
barely see through it hehehe.  Judy and
I will snatch em up and trim around there
eyes from time to time.  Judy just ordered
a pet station for giving them a bath and
cutting their hair.  It was killing the both
of us to cut their hair on the bed and for
me to wash them both in the bathtub with
me down on my aching knees beside it.
Hopefully this petstation works for us
and isn’t just a waste of money.  Anyways
we are looking forward to getting it.  It
should be here by maybe next week or
so.  We’re enjoying being able to open up
the windows in the house and let a little
bit of fresh air in.  Although that does
tend to aggravate my allergies even more
so,  but that’s the price for fresh air LOL.
I have year round allergies.  They never
let up and no allergy medicine works on
me.  Believe me,  I have tried it all hehehe.
From the prescription meds to the over
the counter.  I have the same problem
with pain meds.  Pain meds only make
me jittery,  not sleepy or ease the pain.
Yep,  you guessed it,  PM meds don’t
work on me either.  They just keep me
awake.  Sometimes I could swear that
I’m an alien hehehe.  From what planet
I haven’t a clue.  The organic medicines
just go right through me and send me to
the bathroom to do the unmentionable.
LOL,  yep,  I be weird,  but I’m alive and
I enjoy life.  Even if it’s stricken with a
few drawbacks hehehe.  The pitfalls of
life.  I know many of my problems will
only get worse with time,  but it does me
know good to let them keep me down.
I just try and do the best that I can and
not be always waving a flag saying I’m
sick.  Most people that see me have no
clue that I have health problems,  due to
me doing my best to not advertise.  Yet
there are times it’s totally impossible for
me to hide the fact that I’m in pain,  but
I do the best that I can.  Yesterday we
had a visit from our grandson Christian.
He wanted to come over and stay while
his mom went to work.  Helena brought
him here on her way to work and picked
him up last night.  Christian played on
his cell phone while Judy and I did our
writing.  Judy is still busy writing her
new book.  I think she’s on chapter 22
now.  Many more chapters to go,  but
she’s enjoying writing it.  I can’t wait to
read it.  She asked me if I would proof
read it for her when she got done and
I said sure,  She helps me from time to
time to edit my poems and journal,  I’ll
most surely help her.  All of the leaves on
the trees have finally sprouted and it’s
looking more like springtime.  Summer
is just a few days away.  It’s about time
for me to uncover our picnic table and
the boys doghouse.  I might fill up the
kiddy pool for the boys even though it
seems they aren’t too crazy about it :)
No matter,  when I pull the tarp off of
the pile,  the pool is on top hehehehe,
so it’s gotta move.  One day I need to
haul our old bed out to the driveway
so that our landlord can carry it off
to the dump.  I might do all of that this
week although time will tell won’t it 😉
So, what else is going on around here?
Well I took a little drive through the
back roads Friday after Benny and me
went to Walmart to pick up a few items.
Milo was asleep when we left and so
as the old saying goes,  “let sleeping
dogs lie”,  I let him sleep hehehehehe.
When we got home,  Milo had woken
up and was waiting for us to get home
at the front door.  Judy let him out and
he was all ecstatic.  When we got in the
house,  Him and Benny went running
through the house side by side all the
way in here.  They truly love each other.
Yes I know,  they love us too hehehehe.
We love them bunches and bunches :)
Judy and I thank God every day for all
the blessings He has given us.  We may
not verbalize it,  but He knows.  We do
have our share of bad times,  but we’ve
learned to look for the good times and
not focus on the negativity.  Of course
there are days that it’s a little harder
to do than others,  but we do our best.
Thank You God for putting this family
together and shining down Your mercy,
for I know that we sin as we are human.
Thank You for the daily strength that
You give us to survive.  Now I believe
it’s time for me to be taking my little
trip back through all that I’ve written
here to that place of my recollection 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 that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title and now as I gaze back
on all of my previous titles,  I see that
I have not used this one yet,  so used
it shall be TODAY :)  Here goes.

We Are Human

When you and I stumble
with the things that we do
remember we are human
and then try again anew.
Let not your imperfections
to become as just bad things.
Look for all the good points
within your own cuisine.
Let God to help you daily
to do the things more right
and then you might be happy
with the things that come in sight.
We are human you and I
as life continues on
so don’t let imperfections
to prevent a better dawn.
Look for all the blessings
in your daily times routine
and remember we are human
when you’ve found a busted dream.
Let God to help repair it,
that troubled time you found,
for He can surely show you
how goodness comes around.

OK,  so there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and hopefully you enjoyed all of my
rambling hehehe.  Yep,  we might forget
from time to time that we are built on our
imperfections that make us prefect in God’s
sight.  Our differences are what determine
our personalities.  Imperfections if you will.
So what else is there to say that I haven’t
already said???  Oh yea,  Judy’s brother
Ricky has been released from the hospital
and is now back in the nursing home,  but
nobody knows for sure when or if he will
be going home.  Thanks to Judy and her
family work force,  his house is ready for
him to come home.  I would mention all
of the names of people that worked on it,
but that would be a tad lengthy,  plus
I’m not sure who all helped.  Anyways,
his house is looking nice now.  Judy took
some pictures of the finished results and
printed them out for him to see.  I’m sure
he was amazed :)  I reckon I need to stop
now before I get caught up into that old
Rambles Ville again hehehe.  So I guess
it’s time for me to tell you what I tell
you almost every week and that is,  I
wrote some more poems and haiku :)
Yeppers,  10 more poems with one of
them being sort of Christmassy.  I also
wrote once again 22 haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you
can find something that you like.  Now,
I believe it’s time for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a blessings
filled weekend and most wonderful
spiritual week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  OK,  where
are ya you little varmint?  I hope you
put a little more effort into your hiding
than you have in the past.  LOL,  I see
you ya silly thing.  Hanging from the
PC rooms light switch almost worked,
but you’re totally moving around which
it does not do hehehe.  Better luck next
week.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

As Faith Is Discovered

When problems come storming
with unending ages
seeming to be as
a life’s endless pages,
read as a journey found
troubles surmounted
time continues onwards
sometimes miscounted.
As faith is discovered
those times dissipate
giving us peace of mind
storms alleviate.
Sometimes a prayer or two
can bring a smile
from all of those problems
that time did compile.
So allow some time now
for God to enter in
as faith is discovered
from where all you’ve been.

Last But Not Least

One by one people
will find their connections
through a little wording
of times misconceptions.
Last but not least
many stand to be found
footprints in patterns
in a row on the ground.
The ones in the front
might seem to know more,
but the ones in the back
might see the right door.
Last but not least
we each might be stood
with many found viewing
just misunderstood.
First is not always
the best place to be
for the way that you’re going
ones might disagree.
You might find that one day
that first leads to Hell
and last but not least
has some good to tell.
Lessons that are learned
from seeing the curse
of all of the people
that just sought for first.
Not seeing clearly
that last might be best
and to follow one wiser
might better the quest.

Sentimental Ecstasy

Joyful are the many times
we might see very clear
things that only we can see
to us that are so dear.
A sentimental passageway
that carries us away
some sentimental ecstasy
that finds us day to day.
It might just be a sight or sound
that brings us to a place
filled with many memories
of which we still can taste.
A sentimental passageway
to days of long ago
becomes heartfelt memories
that only we might know.
Those times found living
deep inside our brain
that in troubled times
keep us from insane.
Some sentimental ecstasy
that helps us find a place
living as a heartfelt time
with smiles upon our face.

Sea Breeze

While sitting here
so far away
way up north
from southern wave
I’m find thinking
of a time
sea breeze blowing
oh so fine.
A sweet memory
of times I know
a beach of sand
and winds that blow.
So wonderfully
those days live on
the sun that came
with each new dawn.
Those waves rolled on
with passions stride
with a sea breeze
found inside.

Looking Outside

The things I see
outside my window
seem to be
as winds will blow.
Spring meets summer
soon to find
looking outside
with peace of mind.
Each days viewpoint
brings me sights
looking outside
the days and nights.
With each beginning
of each new day
looking outside
sees a new display.
Some found storming
raindrops fall
some with snowflakes
come to call.
Looking outside
I see time agin
how each season
does begin.

Winters Day Memories

Beyond spring and summer
and also then fall
winters days memories
come then to call.
Even while sitting here
I can remember
winters days memories
begun in December.
It might seem like winter
when fall is displayed
bringing us colors
as they soon will fade.
Winters days memories
live deep inside
taking a journey
on a white snowy ride.
Yet now it’s springtime
with warmer degrees
dreaming of times
winters days memories.

The Evergreen Trees

When winter comes knocking
and leaves turn to brown
soon after autumn
and fall to the ground,
the evergreen trees
still stand there in place
displaying always
the same smiling face.
They hold up their branches
so strong in design
when it is time for
that cold wintertime.
The evergreen trees
give many a way
to celebrate Christmas
with day after day.
Lit up and shining
with lights all around
the evergreen trees
just wait to be found.
Christmastimes journey
that so many make
the evergreen trees
are there for the take.
But thankfully many
will plant one to grow
and stand there so firmly
through winters white snow.
Not leaving vacancy
found in the place
the evergreen trees
display a new face.
Watching and waiting
for their time to be
found within winter
as ones Christmas tree.

Mornings Meditation

As troubles come storming
I seek for peace
mornings meditation
a little release.
Seen as a storm cloud
inside my mind
I seek for peaceful
of time after time.
Mornings meditation
down on my knees
praying to Jesus
to come help me please.
A little bit of prayerful
helps me each day
to find then the answers
day after day.
Mornings meditation
brings me around
allowing me hopeful
upon solid ground.

As The Sun Rises

Morning comes slowly
as the sun rises
filling the day with
many surprises.
Clouds might float in
and rain just a while
or a bird might come
and give me a smile.
As the sun rises
it gives way to chance
found in the seasons
of its song and dance.
Leaves might be falling
and snowflakes might too
as the sun rises
to start the day new.
Each day brings patterns
that only God knows
as the sun rises
with its ebb and flow.

Living In Dreams

Often when struggles
take away my breath
I find a dream can
help me to rest.
Maybe not sleeping,
but peaceful is found
living in dreams will
turn me around.
A fantastic voyage
with flowers and streams
that finds me peaceful
living in dreams.
So when I’m distraught
and need peace of mind
living in dreams can
help me unwind.
Seeing my thinking
come joyful alive
living and dreams can
help me survive.
Then of course truthful
needs to be made
while living in dreams
is just but a phase.
I find reality
a little easier to see
for living in dreams
gives peaceful to me.

Haiku
for June 6,  2015

Pointless is worry
if that is all that you do
without any prayer.

Allowing hateful
to enter into your life
will consume your thoughts.

Tomorrow’s journey
begins with or without you
for time moves along.

The highest mountains
give peaks that many seek for
just to say they did.

A storm of teardrops
falls down when peaceful is lost
or joyful is found.

Mornings beginnings
are often shadows of night
displayed by daylight.

Looking up above
you might see clouds that float by
looking like people.

A walk in the waves
gives a splashing remembrance
of times long ago.

When ones are united
they can become much stronger
and handle much more.

Finding your footing
might display a few errors,
before you hold tight.

The hands of a clock
move at their own desired time
to help us along.

The king and queens home
might not be a castle wall,
but a tiny house.

With each perception
ones might not see what you see
because they’re not you.

The desert suns heat
fills the void with mere mirages
found as deception.

Two hearts holding tight
can withstand many problems
if they love Jesus.

A noble swordsman
displays his blade with honor
and not of ego.

Painting mysteries
brings forth many ways to see
through your perception.

On any moment
actions can be turned around,
so be real careful.

Our hurried running
can leave us without a breath
headed to nowhere.

An ocean bound mind
finds waves of exploration
for just but a peek.

Our own emotions
bring alive others feelings
as we’re connected.

Letting ones change you
might cause you to lose yourself
if it is not you.

Combined With Seriousness

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a fairly nice week this passed week.
The weather has been not too bad.  It’ nice
and cool today,  but sort of rainy.  Judy and
I took a drive to Walmart just a little while
ago to get us some more soda waters AKA
Pepsi and Mountain Dew hehehe.  Benny and
Milo enjoyed the ride.  We stopped off and
got us some hamburgers from Burger King
for our dinner later on today.  It looks like
we might have a bit of cool weather for the
rest of the week.  Today’s high is supposed
to be 56 F degrees and right now it’s 53 F.
Tomorrow’s high is supposed to be 60 F or
so with Tuesdays high around 50 F degrees.
Yep,  it ain’t nothing like Texas weather :)
Summer is just around the corner and we’re
still having morning frosts up here hehehe.
I have to keep tabs on the weather so not
to leave Judy’s plant outside and get frozen
again.  It’s come back alive,  but so far it
has not sprouted any more flowers.  Maybe
if the sun ever decides to stay out for a bit,
the plant might bloom again hehehe.  Yet,
for now,  we see mostly clouds.  I’m glad
that Texas is getting a reprieve from the
rains.  I am sad that my bro. Mark and his
family got flooded out in Oklahoma and
are now having to find somewhere to live.
I imagine this is a problem for many with
all of the floods,  tornadoes,  hurricanes,
Earthquakes, landslides and fires.  Most
of these problems are a yearly thing,  but
it doesn’t make it any easier I’m sure.  So
I send my prayers to you all.  Up this ways,
the weather has not been all that bad.  We
had a ton of snow and when it melted it did
take it’s toll on some low lying areas,  but
Judy and I are fine.  I took the boys out for
a walk in the field Monday and Benny did
more than walk LOL.  He zoomed passed
me as he always does,  but Milo decided
to hang back.  He only came out a little
ways.  It was a good day,  but cloudy as
always hehehe.  Tuesday Judy and I took
a ride over to the graveyard and she put
some lights that she bought from Walmart
a week or so ago around her dads grave.
We both took a few pictures of it and on
the drive there and back I took pictures
of the scenery as I always do :)  I love to
take pictures especially when the scenery
seems to be asking for a photograph LOL.
So,  what else has gone on this passed
week?  Judy’s brother Ricky is not doing
well at all.  He’s in the hospital now with
heart problems and kidney failure.  Keep
him and the family in your prayers.  I’m
sure that God is in control and He hears
our prayers.  OK,  so what else is there to
yammer about?  Oh yea,  Judy and I took
the boys out in the field for a little nature
stroll Friday :)  Milo was all into it that
day.  It might of had to do with the fact
that Judy (MOM) was with us this time.
He went running on ahead of us with a
smile on his little face.  Both Benny and
Milo were happy campers.  They ran
around side by side and played.  I had
a dickens of a time with Benny’s camera.
It kept falling off of his collar.  I’ll have
to find a better way to attach it so that it
won’t fall off when we go strolling LOL.
I’m sure I’ll figure out something hehehe.
In the mean time,  Judy and I get plenty
of pictures of them.  He’ll have to wait
to take more pictures of me hehehehe.
Maybe next time he’ll get some pictures
of mom (Judy).  Yes we’re a slight weird,
but weird’s what makes the world go
around.  If it were not for silly people,
the world would become boring hehehe.
Sometimes a silly thought or something
you saw will bring you out of sadness.
Some weird things can become ventures
of a lesson learned.  Don’t ever think that
silliness or weirdness is not necessary.
Combined with seriousness,  it all brings
the world together.  Now I believe it’s
time for me to be taking my little venture
back through all that I’ve written here,
to that place of my recollection to see
if I can find me a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s
brand new poem.  So,  it’s away I go
to that place that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe I may
have found a decent title and now after
checking,  I see that it has not been used
as of yet,  but used it shall be,  by me.
Here goes nothing,  but I hope not LOL.

Combined With Seriousness

Beyond what’s silly
might find what’s true
and then what’s serious
might live in you.
Those things we think of,
those times so sad
a silly emotion might
make you so glad.
Combined with seriousness
silliness strives
to take on a moment
where joyful arrives.
A little bit of laughter
through a serious note
might help your journey
to prayerfully float.
Often ones seriousness
will bring them down,
but a little bit of silly
might remove that frown.
So let your journeys
find laughter in stride
combined with seriousness
silly inside.

So did ya like the poem?  I hope that you
understood it :)  I always have a dose of
silliness to dish out,  but I do have my many
serious moments.  Just ask Judy :)  Yes we
all need to get in silly mode from time to
time,  but don’t stay there.  It can cause
problems and even run people away from
you.  Judy just went in the kitchen and got
her chips hehehe.  I’m about ready to eat
my burger.  I’m guessing that she’s ready
for hers :)  It’s 52 F degrees now.  I don’t
think it made it to 56 F degrees.  I guess
it’s time for me to be telling you what I
tell you almost every week and that is,
I wrote a few more poems and haiku to
share with you.  Yeppers,  10 more poems
with 1 being sort of Christmassy hehehe.
Also once again I wrote 22 more haiku
for all of the haiku lovers out there :)  I
hope you can find something 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 a
most wonderful weekend and a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now,  where’s that
off switch that’s lacking terribly in hiding
skills hehehe?  I see ya you little varmint.
Hiding behind a triple A battery does not
constitute hiding,  being it’s so tiny and
you’re,  well let’s just say,  you’re not.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Heart and Soul

As people come together
and time pays its toll
there might be some echoes of
a little heart and soul.
Seasons that ones battled
might unite will and way
through heart and soul moments
of another kind of day.
The ones now stood guarding
might change their command
with a heart and soul battle
to help ones to stand.
Too many times we worry
about stupid little things
like journeys through colors
or ethnic type rings.
Our heart and soul is
what should bind our mind
together as brothers
for all of mankind.
We shouldn’t be fighting
for greed and of hate,
for we should be finding
our similar trait.

Weeds Of Life

With so many flowers
of day and of night
often it’s hard to
see weeds of life.
Sometimes the weeds
will hide in the mix
while they continue
getting their fix.
The view of a moment
might have hidden true
some weeds of life
that somehow snuck through.
People with lifestyles
poisoned with gain
for what that they only
seek to attain.
The weeds of life
will just suck us dry
if we don’t stay strong
in our by and by.
Finding the strength to
do what that’s right
and not get consumed
by the weeds of life.

The Days And Nights

With views of the night sky
and that found by day
the days and nights
create their own way.
Displaying their ventures
with clouds and of stars.
The day shows a rainbow
and night shows us Mars.
The days and nights
become friends of time
in ways of conjoining
a wondrous design.
Night brings us pathways
of scenes in the dark
sometimes with echoes of
dogs that will bark.
Day brings us similar
yet we can see
the things that were hidden
from you and from me.
The day displays doorways
of clouds floating by
while nighttime displays them
as shadows in the sky.
The passage of time
forms skyline charade
acting out portions of
life’s lemonade.
Found as the portholes
of darkness and lights
this is the story of
the days and nights.

Beyond A Breath

While many breathe,
a breath fades away
that might of stood
beside us each day.
We might not perceive
of the ones nearing death
for we have not seen
what’s beyond a breath.
So,  take time to look
and see what’s inside
a heart that is there
that we thought had lied.
Often it’s but only
our own point of view
found beyond a breath
of then thereunto.
Now as you read this
take heed and refine
your days perception
of ones time to time.
For,  beyond a breath
might show you the key
of what that’s true
in all that you see.

Summer Soon Comes

Today as the values
of springtime display
June is beginning
with the ending of May.
Summer soon comes
as the hours connect
showing us truly
their wondrous affect.
Now as the flowers
display all their colors
summer soon comes
with so many others.
Like seasons book
with pages to turn
summer soon comes
with more to discern.
The heat of the season
reflects its own style
some with cool breezes
blowing a while.
Summer soon comes
with rains falling down
sometimes too often
and sometimes not found.
The seasonal doorway
beats many drums
found after May then
summer soon comes.

Look For A Smile

Look for a smile
as your day begins
even if you have to
fill it with grins.
Don’t let your past
to wear on your mind,
for there is better
for future to find.
Don’t let the darkness
of yesterdays dawn
to be your lifestyle
as time moves along
For you might find
a darker tomorrow
filled with but only
all of your sorrow.
Look passed the times
you did not do well
and find today
a better detail.
Look for a smile
or maybe a grin
to help you today
and all that’s therein.

That Special Time

There’s a special time
that lives in my heart
a wonderful time
that shall not depart.
It is so magical
as it comes to view
that special time
with a wonderful hue.
Some think I’m crazy,
but I could care less,
for Christmas always
I daily possess.
That blessed moment
that never shall end
for it’s within me
as Decembers wind.
I think of it always
and its great design
while its within me then
that special time.

Midnight Expressions

The evening grows darker
as nighttime prevails
midnight expressions soon
show their details.
The stars begin twinkling
as the sun fades away,
then the moon’s shining
with its own display.
The hours tick onwards
as nighttime moves on
with midnight expressions
that sing along.
Songs of the twilight
begin shining true
midnight expressions
within their own view.
The night shows the twinkle
of a stars own design
midnight expressions
that live in my mind.
Designs of the zodiac
that paint up the skies
midnight expressions
that God did surmise.

Angels All Around

Those times in my past
that I struggled on
I found I had angels
helping me along.
I now can look back
and see angels wings
helping me daily
to do the right things.
Many times I stubbornly
still tried to prove
I was truly ready
to fit in the groove.
Angels all around
still came guiding me
helping me to be
who I needed be.
We all have some angels
that stand clear as day
friends there to guide you
to the right way.
There’s angels all around
but some are not seen
and they’re just waiting
to be your tambourine.
To help you see yourself
in the right kind of light
angels all around
to show you what’s right.

My Imagination

Times when I worry
of my devastation
often it’s but only
my imagination.
We each might conjure
up our own pain
from all the times
we sought so insane.
My imagination
can take me away
letting in hopeful
of a different array.
When I’m depressed
I find I can see
my imagination
as a hope driven key.
Imagining a moment
maybe not true,
but it changed sadness
to a much brighter hue.
Yet my imagination
needs to know when
to cease of its journey
letting truthful begin.

Haiku
for May 30,  2015

Looking passed the clouds
the sky becomes as starlight
when nighttime prevails.

Marching to your style
might find you marching alone
if your style is bad.

The mast of a ship
with its sail opened up wide
finds ways to travel.

Beyond our vision
is a world that is hidden
in our perception.

Truth has two meanings
with one meant to hurt others
and one which to not.

The echoes we hear
might turn out to be our own
that ones heard us say.

Meaningful chatter
might lose all of its meaning
as noise hides the facts.

Yesterdays glimmers
could possibly be nightmares
that should of been dreams.

So many people
leave themselves on chopping blocks
of stupidity.

A mind within minds
hold another realm of thought
that is found in depth.

Without True belief
Heaven and its existence
is still holding true.

A light within us
might become a blinding thought
that guides our future.

Windows of insight
can display many moments
some good and some bad.

When catching wind
let your hands grasp its power
and then let it flow.

A minute from now
leaves seconds to be counted
if you are real bored.

Various lifestyles
display footsteps in patterns
that mock each other.

The love of money
can turn into dynamite
destroying your life.

Now is a moment
that shall soon fade from our sight
while displaying then.

Passionate people
will often find ones not so
and get hurt real bad.

Allowing others
to affect your emotions
gives them great power.

Momentary times
will come and go in our lives
that become heartbeats.

The sun shining bright
can either become blinding
or help us to see.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a busy week and more for my little Mrs. Judy
She’s been over her brothers house cleaning, getting
it ready for him when he gets home from the nursing
home Wednesday. A lot of her family have been with
her helping. They’ve pulled up carpet and painted the
walls and floors. Ricky won’t recognize the place when
he gets home. I wish I could of helped, but I have not
been doing so well health wise and plus, somebody’s
gotta stay home with the boys. Judy just called and
said our grandson Christian wants to come over here
and stay. He was helping Judy and the others with
the cleanup and he’s tired and not feeling well. So
it looks like Judy will be bringing him here. Benny
is barking, so that might mean Judy is here. Yep,
so now Christian is here. I guess he’ll play games
on his phone or maybe get on Judy’s PC and find
some games to play. As long as he doesn’t make
a lot of noise while I’m trying to write. It’s pretty
nice outside. Only 73 F degrees. Judy’s flowers
came back alive. I had put two aspirin in a small
glass of water and let them dissolve then poured
it over the plants and in the vase. I might need
to cut out a few limbs that did not recover, but I
believe it will be OK. So now Judy only needs one
more plant to put in the front basket. So what else
is going on around this place. Me and Christian
have been here sitting and talking while I took
a breather from writing. Milo is in his spot in the
floor sleeping. Benny is at his guard post in the
living room as he is always LOL. It looks like
we might get some rain tomorrow. and maybe
even Tuesday. I noticed that Texas is getting
a bit of rain along with a few other states. Yet
I don’t see no rain for California. That state is
in dire need of some rain. Let’s keep those that
are in need in prayer. Boy, that wind is blowing.
I have a lot of windows opened throughout the
house hehehe. It’s almost like a wind tunnel in
here LOL. Although at the moment it’s calmed
down a bit. I’m trying to converse with Christian
as I write, but it’s difficult hehehe. I might fix
me and him something to eat in a little while, but
we ate breakfast just a couple of hours ago :)
He has been trying to down load a game to his
phone and he finally got it done. He just said
thank God, because he was afraid it wouldn’t
work on his phone, but it does :) Looking out
the window I now see that many of the trees
have finally sprouted leaves. Of course we’ve
had a few freezing frosty mornings that have
slowed things down. We had another freeze
Friday night, but I brought Judy’s flowers in
this time. It doesn’t look like we’ll be getting
another freeze, at least not in the next week
or so, but that could change. It was snowing
Saturday morning hehehe. I waited for it to
pass and warm up a bit before I took Judy’s
plant back outside hehehe. Yep, snow in May.
In the later days of May at that LOL, but it’s
how things roll up here. I’m looking forward to
doing some cooking outdoors, but I’ve gotta
buy us another grill first. Our old one rusted
to pieces and so we through it away. Judy and
I might find time to take a dip in her sister’s
swimming pool this summer hehehe. They’ve
got a 4 foot pool. Judy’s mom is still staying
at her sister Trudy’s house. They’ve been
trying to get her in a nursing home. That’s
where she needs to be. Maybe one day soon
God willing. Judy’s brother Ricky is coming
home Wednesday so hopefully they’ll be all
done with the cleanup and painting. I will be
so glad when it’s done, because I miss Judy.
I know she might be tons happier when it’s
done because she’s pooped hehehe. I try my
best to take care of her when she gets home,
but then I did that even before all of this LOL.
It’s the way I am hehehe. I fixed us Taquitos
last night. They weren’t quite as hungry as
I was though hehehe. The only thing I had
eaten all day was Eggos and sausage that we
had for breakfast. If Christian gets hungry
I might just warm up the Taquitos for him.
I don’t eat too often due to my health issues
that make eating not enjoyed. But, I might
make myself a Jif and jelly sandwich so he
won’t have to eat alone hehehe. Yes I said
Jif and jelly. Growing up, my mom only
bought Jif brand peanut butter. Hehehe
the jelly didn’t really matter. So now days
I still only buy Jif. It’s burned into my way
of thinking LOL. It’s your fault mom LOL.
I’m sure you have a few things from your
childhood that followed you into adulthood :)
Let’s put it this away. If it does nobody any
harm including yourself, why change hehehe?
Yep, I have a few things that followed me
from childhood such as my washing the dishes
and putting them away without thinking it was
somebody else’s job. It’s just something
I do. I don’t mind cooking, but not just for
myself. If I was just cooking for myself, it
would not happen often. Especially now that
I have no colon LOL. Let’s just say, I don’t
look forward to eating hehehe. But God has
given me many blessings to help me to see
passed the problems of life. Yes I do get
tired of the aches and pains and having to
go to the restroom more times than I can
count LOL, but I do enjoy spending time
with Judy and the boys as well as our many
other family members. We always enjoy
having Christian stay with us. Of course to
him we might be old and boring and for the
life of me I cannot see why he wants to be
here, but I am thrilled to have him here. I
wish my daughter Jamye and her daughter
(our granddaughter) Sami could come up some
time. We also enjoy it when Judy’s daughters
come for a visit. Our grandson Chance and
granddaughter Rylee are also a welcomed
sight around here. Lil Tommy is welcome
as well. It’s been a long time since he has
come for a visit. Thank You God for all of
the blessings that You have given us. Judy
and I are most grateful. I reckon it’s time
for me to cease my rambling and take a lil
trip back through all that I have written here
to that place of my recollection and see if
I can find me a decent title. So, it’s away
I go, back through all that I’ve written here
to that little place that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I found a
good title and now after checking I see that
it has not been used as of yet. So used it
shall be today hehehe. Here goes………….

Most Grateful

Where hopeful is hidden
with times now exposed
I am most grateful
for times blessed rose.
Often my viewpoints
are not great to see,
but I am most grateful,
what God gave to me.
He’s given blessings
and talents to show
sharing with others
wherever I go.
I am most grateful
for all that God’s done
giving so freely
Lord Jesus His Son.
No matter the passed days
of my own desire
I am most grateful
I’m saved from Hells fire.
He showed me mercy
as He does each day
and I am most grateful
He’s showed me the way.

So there ya go. I hope you enjoyed my rambling
and maybe even the poem :) Christian had gone
into the living room to rest, but came in here to
tell me he saw a wasp, but as I came in there with
bug spray, I saw no wasp. It might of flown off.
Anyways, Christian is back in here, because he’s
afraid of the wasp. I might spot it later and then
send it outside to play. They don’t bother me no
more than a prickly pin hehehehe. Bumble bees
and scorpions don’t bother me either. I’m immune.
Of course I haven’t been stung by a scorpion in
in many years or the other either, so who knows.
I don’t get mosquito bites either due to the odd
blood chemistry of mine. Don’t ask! It’s what I
was born with. When I was a kid I used to play
with poison oak vines and poison ivy, but even
in later dates it has never bothered me. I was
all in it a few times last year while taking a walk
through the woods hehehe. Oh well, I be weird.
My dads immunity for it ceased on him shortly
before he passed away. So, I guess before I
get into Rambles ville again, I better tell you
what I tell you almost every week and that is
I wrote some more poems and haiku. Yeppers,
10 more poems with 1 of them being sort of
Christmassy. Also I wrote once again 22 haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope you
find something you like. So now I believe I need
to begin my search for that not so illusive off
switch, but not before I wish you a most blessed
weekend and a God filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. OK, where
are ya hiding you silly off switch? I hope you
have put a little more effort into your hiding
than you have in the past. Yet, Me thinks
you are just being lazy as I can see you clear
as day hiding or should I say trying to hide
behind my Mountain Dew can hehehehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

P.S. Thanks to Ron and Mandy at Century Computer
my PC with Windows 8 is back up and running, but
I’ve gotta buy another mouse for it before I can use it.
A special thanks to my mom also for paying for the
repairs. I don’t know what we would do without you.
We love you tons.

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

I Believe In Miracles

The essence of a sunny day
becomes my wildest dream
while I believe in miracles
within each magical scene.
The months of time all pass on by
with echoes of yesterday.
Yes, I believe in miracles
within a wondrous way.
The clouds that fly so high above
become an artist view
and I believe in miracles
as each day starts anew.
The seasons found within our minds
flow as a timeless force,
while I believe in miracles
in such a scenic course.
Painted with the Hands of God
as each day starts its shine
while I believe in miracles
that God gives so Divine.
Scenes so magical wonderful true
become a breath of air
for I believe in miracles
that are found everywhere.
Beyond right now and tomorrow
scenes continue to grow,
while I believe in miracles
with flowers and fallen snow.
Each day I see another sign
of wonderful things to view.
Yes, I believe in miracles
that God gives me and you.
So now as time just moves along
tell me do you agree
and do you believe in miracles,
even ones you may not see?
I believe in miracles
for I have seen displayed
things that happened in my life
that were true Heaven made.
So many times I wandered passed
the doors of better days
but then I saw much later on
the errors of my ways.
God had not forsaken me
for He still guided me true,
so yes I believe in miracles
that help me start anew.
The past is time that is no more,
but it has taught me well.
Yes, I believe in miracles
that saved my soul from Hell.

How Many Times

When we get caught up
in pleasure and pain
how many times
are we found without gain?
Lessons from mishaps
brought by our actions
often become as
our troublesome fractions.
How many times
do you look up and say
Dear Lord please help me
right now and today?
Do you continue
to do as you’ve done
and how many times
have you seen the same sun?
Today is a passageway
unto tomorrow
so how many times
will you seek time to borrow?
Will you continue
with your failed desires
and not admit that
some lead to Hell’s fires?
How many times
will you find day to day
that you’re still wanting
everything you’re own way?
Sometimes our wantings
will drive us insane
not giving anything
good to attain.

My Seasonal Dreams

My dreams of winter
and Christmas with cheer
comes from my seasonal
dreams every year.
Scenes within turnstiles
as white winter snow
and then at springtime
with flowers that grow.
My seasonal dreams
are found in my mind
harnessing flavors
of each great design.
Seasonal doorways
that give things to see
dreams I envision
and wish them to be.
My seasonal dreams
are pathways I find
within the turnstiles
of time after time.
As time moves onwards
with pages applied
my seasonal dreams
are an ongoing ride.

A Painted Smile

A circus clown
with smiles of paint
might be found
with frowns restraint.
This not only
is what’s found
when we daily
look around.
A painted smile
of holding back
in fleshly tone
that’s hiding black.
The painted face
without a stroke
hides sometimes
what’s truthful spoke.
A painted smile
a frown beneath
to hide the truth
with gritted teeth.
So understand
someone’s denial
might just hide
a painted smile.

As Things Might Seem

While time is ticking
many things will occur
as things might seem
to be just a blur.
All things remembered
might now just display
as time might seem
with a hurried array.
Often our journeys
might lose their control
when moving quickly
and time pays its toll.
As things might seem
we might see illusion
found amidst doorways
of truthful confusion..
We are the pages
of times written word
as things might seem
sometimes so absurd.
Let journeys sought
be a prayerful design,
as things might seem
just a little out of time.
Lord God gives direction
though sometimes extreme
with some seeming hurtful
as things might seem.
But God knows our needs
while life moves along
as things might seem
what now seems so wrong.
So right now be thankful
for what you don’t know
for sometimes our knowledge
can fill us with woe.
As things might seem
right now might be bad,
but there are blessings
which you should be glad.
Though we can’t see them
some blessings in life,
surely are with us
a husband or wife.
Our family and friends
that have gone ahead
now within Heaven
not hurting instead.
As things might seem
they are not in our sight,
but they are with us
each day and each night.
So all those blessings
of layers of time
now can find friendship
through Jesus Divine.
For as things might seem
they might not be great,
but there are great blessings
to surely elate.

Soon Will Come Summer

Springtime surrounds us
in our to and fro
flowers and trees
with grasses that grow.
Soon will come summer
as minutes tick on
springtime at dusk
then summer at dawn.
Soon summers fragrance
will fill up the days
as breezes blowing
like oceans of waves.
Essence of springtime
will still be well seen
found in the waters
of leftover spring.
Yet now the flowers
that blossom and grow
live now in springtime
with their to and fro.

Two Hearts Collide

When time comes together
and two hearts collide
true love takes journeys
on a magical ride.
Sometimes there’s problems
as two hearts will grow,
but they grow closer
with more time they know.
Yes of course hard times
will plant bitter seeds,
but if they’re truthful
they’ll find all their needs.
Planted as passion
as two hearts grow old
time gives the chances
for God to unfold.
Allowing Lord Jesus
to come then inside
will find them blessings
as two hearts collide.

Behind Our Eyes

With only a sight
our eyes cannot see,
for so many things
live in you and me.
We have our own ways
of dealing with things
behind our eyes
might be tangled strings.
What ones know not of,
for they’re not that wise.
Things that are hidden
right behind our eyes.
Lifestyles of torment
that we’ve suffered through
behind our eyes
might still feel the blue.
So many show only
what they feel they should,
for behind our eyes
ones misunderstood.
So when you’re judging
how someone reacts
remember you might not
have all of the facts.
Behind their eyes
might conceal their heart
that has by many
been just blown apart.
They might need someone
to help them some way
to find life and living
of a much better day.
So don’t judge too quickly
and think you’re too wise,
for they might be living
with times of dark skies.

A Morning Of May

One morning of May
we saw it was snowing
thinking this season
knows not where it’s going.
Crazy it seems
for snow to fall down
a morning of May
so weird to found
Bizarre it was surely
a morning of May
flavored with snowflakes
non seasonal way.
We both got our cameras
and aimed out the door
taking some pictures
like winters before.
A morning of May
brought white snow to see
a bizarre moment truly
you’ll have to agree.

Santa In The Heart

Christmas comes blissfully
times we remember
seasonal moments
that many remember.
Thinking of Santa Claus,
his giving way
makes many think about
that wondrous day.
Some will bestow it
the Christmastime joy
memories of them then
a young girl or boy.
There’s ones giving freely
what they’re taught is right
with Christmas cheerful
that they so delight.
They hold fast the meaning
of Christmas they know
displaying joyful
to help others grow.
Many hold that feeling
with God to impart
giving to others as
Santa in the heart.

Haiku
for May 23, 2015

Mornings of grateful
will bring forth many blessings
with prayer entered in.

Desire of others
will lead to discontentment
as wantings prevail.

A forest of time
finds many leaves uncounted
as each tree will grow.

Sunshine by evening
bids its farewell to the day
as night comes alive.

Teams of wild horses
can not make you change your mind
if you are stubborn.

While many will wait,
others will hurry ahead
and test the waters.

We each see moments
through our own certain eyesight
distinguishing them.

Ones with their baggage
might coax you into joining
making more baggage.

Letting lose of then
will help the future to grow
and find happiness.

With teardrops falling
many might mistaken the sight
and just walk away.

Many find a car wreck
while rubbernecking to see
what they care not of.

More time is wasted
when we put off importance
and focus on junk.

Sleepy eyes will shut
as the minutes tick onwards
adding to others.

A flower frosted
might find its life once again
as sunshine gives warmth.

Bleakness of others
might be found through their lifestyles
they found by accident.

Too many people
look at only the bad times
while missing the good.

A mindset person
will be hard to influence,
but it can be done.

Stubborn weeds will grow
as they act just like flowers
to cease being mowed.

Tomorrow’s doorway
will open in its own time
as now is displayed.

Choosing your pathway
needs be done with God’s guidance
through a little prayer.

Staring at others
might cause them to stare right back,
so take note of that.

What people might think
will often cause us worry,
but it don’t matter.
