ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s another day gone by as October
nears it’s closing.  Halloween is on its
way.  Judy painted a couple of great
Halloween pictures for me to use for
poetry pictures.  I might see what I
can do with them this evening 🙂 I’ve
already got some ideas.  It’s been a
sort of slow week the passed few days.
Although I did get a call this week
telling me that my doctor has moved
to the walk in clinic and I now have
yet another doctor.  This makes 4 that
I have gone through in less than two
years LOL.  I’m getting to the point
of just letting it go and when I have
to go to the doctor,  go to the walk
in LOL.  That’s where most of my
previous doctors/nurses have ended
up hahaha.  The only reason that I
need a doctor anyways is to prescribe
my inhaler and Advair.  There are no
medications that will work on my
weird internal and external anatomy
other than my inhaler and Advair 🙂
I have an over active immune system
which makes anything I’ve taken to
not work a second time.  Sometimes
I swear that I must be an alien and
not from another country hehehehe.
So,  what else is going on around
this place?  Well,  Judy and her
sister and grandson went to help
get her brothers house winterized
so that they can turn off the electric.
Her brother is in a nursing home.
Life up this ways is in slow motion
or at least it seems that way to me.
I see by my weather program that we
might get some snow Wednesday 🙂
It snowed a little bit Thursday,  but
it melted as fast as it hit the ground.
It takes a few days of continuous
freezing temperatures 32F and below
temperatures to get the ground cold
enough to be able to sustain snow.
I haven’t taken many pictures this
passed week due to the fact there
has been not much to take pictures
of LOL.  Although I did take a few
pictures of the snow falling the other
day.  Right now it’s 37 F degrees at
4 PM.  Still not too bad 🙂  We’re
staying warm as we spend most of
our time in here (the PC room) and
the computer monitors put out a
lot of heat.  LOL looking out the
window it looks as though it could
snow at any given moment hahaha,
but as I said before,  the ground is
still too warm to sustain any snow.
God has still been watching over us
and sending angels to protect us
and guide us.  I’m sure that we will
be Ok,  no matter what life throws
at us.  So,  I guess 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 for today’s brand
new poem,  And so it’s away I go to
that place of my recollection that
I always call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I found a decent title just a
third of the way back in my rambling
which is not the first appearance of
that word LOL,  but after checking
I see that I haven’t used it as of yet,
so used it shall be today. Here goes…

Although

Faces of people
and places we view
might have well hidden
what’s really so true.
Hidden beneath laughter
hidden beneath days
so many might be
emersed in the grays.
Although they might
show a little smile
beneath that picture
the pain might compile.
Hidden in a facade
of their daily lives
might be a moment
that stabs like knives.
Although they deny it
with a smiling face
many will see through
and find a small trace.
So try and let Lord God
to help when you’re low,
for even with struggles
you’ll grow then although.

Okie dokie,  there ya go.  I hope
you liked the poem and you maybe
even understood it :).  Also I hope
you enjoyed my rambling.  It’s
35 F degrees now at 4:50 PM.  The
temperature has gone down a couple
of degrees hehehe.  I’m trying to see
if there is anything I’ve forgotten
to tell you,  but it seems I have said
it all except of course what I tell you
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers 10
more poems with 2 extras and there
are 5 Christmas poems in the mix 🙂
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either or both
that you like.  Now,  I believe it’s
time for me to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but
not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or what that’s left of it and
a truly blessings filled week.  OK,
now,  where is that ornery off switch
trying to hide this week?  Searching
high and low and no sign,  OH OH,
I see movement.  Right there behind
my little Animal figurine that 1 of
my friends gave me years ago.  Yep,
I see you ya little varmint.  Trying to
hold it up when it fell on ya 🙂 LOL.
That’ll teach ya to not to be hiding
behind things that are not stable.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Green and Gold

Looking on through
and seeing signs
green and gold
of greater times.
So many might be
with a bit of brown
as life unfolds
a distant frown.
Heartbeats of life
become as a sight
green and gold
of fear and fright.
We often only see
how many enter
that may become
a little dimmer.
Look for the truth
inside of a glance
as green and gold
may need a chance.
Many will judge
without knowing
who ones are or
what’s bestowing.
So don’t become
a judgmental fool
looking at ones
and being so cruel.
For they might be
of green and gold
then looking brown
as moments unfold.

Falling Leaves

The life of autumn
is a change of face
with falling leaves
landing with grace.
They have become
a colorful scene
even after leaving
branches of dream.
They held tightly
and displayed time
colorful moments
for ones to find.
Those autumn days
that followed summer
brought forth time
for us to discover.
Colorful blessings
a lifetime perceives
as autumn displays
its falling leaves.

Christmas Journey

Beyond what is seen
a journey may begin
scented of snowflakes
of time and again.
A Christmastime theme
that is billowy white
might display seasons
of Christmas delight.
Trees all glistening
snow on their limbs
as that of a painting
that winter transcends.
Then as the days pass
our heartbeats appear
textured of snowflakes
and Santa’s reindeer.
Maybe of a mixture
of a song that we sing
on a Christmas journey
and snowflakes to cling.
Holding on tightly
to the branches thereof
life becomes photos
of the Heaven sent love.
A photographers view
of this wonderful seen
is a time he’ll remember
as blessings supreme.
For he then discovered
the seasons delight
on a Christmas journey
from day unto night.

Dragonfly’s Style

Painted emotions
of a dragonfly
can become seen
in a low lying sky.
Seen above a pond
with its little family
a dragonfly’s style
so wondrous to see.
It hovers in flight
then away it goes
a dragonfly’s style
the pathway it chose.
Above water lily’s
of a painted design
it might discover
a magical find.
A place of a dream
that came alive
as a moment in time
that it did survive.
You might see it
for real then one day
as it flutters around
in April and May.
It might be seen
as a mere memory
a time within life
with a magical key.
A time when vision
is met with a smile
as you are watching
a dragonfly’s style.

Winter’s Travels

Roads of ice
with a little snow
make the going
a little slow.
Heading to town
one winter’s eve
we drove real slow
so not to weave.
It was in March
this winter scene
that we drove
to not serpentine.
It was so beautiful
this winter road
that gave me sights
that did unfold.
The snow of white
was like a smile
that passed us by
as it did compile.
The evening was
a magical fact
winter’s travels
there and back.
Roads were slick,
but we held on
our trip to town
and then to home.
We talked about
how time unravels
scenes like these
of winter’s travels.

It Came Alive

Blue skies of evening
brought forth a view
clouds that awakened
in a deep sky of blue.
The time came to be
as an ocean of waves
while it came alive
with whites and grays.
A few other colors
became clear to see
as then it came alive
a gift for you and me.
This special moment
was a time so sweet
with clouds up above
as a days tasty treat.
Seeming to become
as a time at the fair
with cotton candy
floating in the air.
For it began its quest
as a journey in time
when it came alive
as a wondrous design.
Painting up the sky
with colors so unique
when it came alive
looking oh so antique.
A view of such beauty
and wonderful ways
when it came alive
for my eyes to gaze.

Wintery Tune

The snow of white
is such a sight
a scene to see
of day and night.
It brings in view
a sight or two
to begin its quest
for me and you.
It’s sent as love
from God above
wintery sweet
and all thereof.
It brings a smile
of scenic style
a Christmas view
a wintery while.
It helps me see
what’s given free
a song so sweet
I’ve sung happily.
I now remember
within December
a time long ago
a burning ember.
It came as a dance
a snowy romance
a glistening sight
that I saw enhance.
It helped me find
my peace of mind
a wintery tune
of Christmastime.

Clouded Views

Ocean’s style of blue
with clouds of time
begin in the sky
as a frame of mind.
Clouded perception
of a stormy day
might be illusions
of life’s display.
Minutes passing
might just be
some clouded views
that only you see.
Storms of troubles
might entertain
all our emotions
of pouring rain.
Our many mishaps
of clouded views
might bring forth
some saddened news.
So find the beauty
in a cloudy sky
and give sadness
a firm goodbye.
Allow for the changes
of a distant array
to be just of clouds
of another day.
Time is a porthole
with daily news
so seek for the good
in clouded views.

All Lit Up

A Christmastime
so long ago
I can remember
there was no snow.
It was a moment
I won’t forget
that was all lit up
as a season gazette.
It brought me joy
that wonderful sight
as we drove around
in the dark of night.
I snapped pictures
as fast as I could
as we drove around
each neighborhood.
It was so magical
that time of year
as it gave me joy
and Christmas cheer.
The time came alive
as lights all shined
and gave a glimmer
inside of my mind.
This time and place
is now a memory
that was all lit up
the greatest to see.

Sit A While

Take a load off
now sit a while
and rest your body
that times compile.
Seek for seconds
minutes applied
and sit a while
with God to confide.
Release your hurry
and find some peace
found in a prayer
a moment’s release.
Don’t let worries
to drag you down.
Look for a smile
and lose that frown.
So sit a while
and take a breath
in life and times
find some rest.
Don’t be always
hurrying around
trying to go upwards
or trying to go down.
Let God guide you
as you move along
and then you will get
where you belong.
Learn your lessons
that times compile
and then take time
to sit a while.

Dreaming Of Winter

Life worth living
is a snow covered day
filled with expressions
of a winter display.
Christmas in the makings
with house in the snow
dreaming of winter
shows wintertime’s flow.
Scented with flavors
of cookies and pie
Christmas becomes as
snowflakes that fly.
Then as the snowflakes
land on the ground
children seen playing
will roll snow around.
Building a snowman
to become a great view
dreaming of winter
is what I now do.
Thinking of the scenes
that come into sight
as the snow billows
what all I delight.
Even in the darkness
of a nighttime moon
the snow comes to life
with a silvery spoon.
It dips down a sight
in nighttime to glimmer
and this is what I see
when dreaming of winter.

Peaceful Array

At peace with style
is a sight to see
as winter becomes
as so Christmassy.
A peaceful array
of a passing view
a moment in time
of life fresh and new.
Billows of snowfall
upon the ground
and within the trees
it does so astound.
Our eyes might view
what minutes unfold
as a time and place
and story ones told.
A Christmassy day
in a field of white
is a peaceful array
as snowflakes unite.
Bringing forth styles
of a glimmering hue
a time that the mind
sees what is true.
This is a blessing
from Heaven above
a peaceful array
of passion and love.
So when snowflakes
begin their display
take a deep breath
of a peaceful array.

Haiku
for Oct 20,  2018

Time is but a place
that we see as seconds pass
that minutes conceive.

Chance for a heartbeat
comes as faith is recognized
and two become one.

Petals of flowers
are as hands seeking sunshine
and a little rain.

Pathways that we cross
are often roads we might ride
when the time is right.

Sought after seasons
are often temperatures
and not the beauty.

Walking too quickly
can be the cause of failure,
because of hurry.

When glancing upwards
you might see the stars at night
through clouds passing by.

Living for money
can become a handicap
that life tears apart.

In search of our dreams
we might find a few nightmares
that come out to play.

Beyond our eyesight
holds many confusing views
that aren’t understood.

Thoughts that we may think
might become as hindrances
and not that of growth.

The leaves of journeys
are as autumn to winter
and then of springtime.

Driving emotions
are as cars on a journey
of uphill and down.

Jogging down highways
on the wrong side of the road
can cause your demise.

Beneath what ones see
might hold many mysteries
that unfold in time.

Seeking for pleasures
can lead to your destruction
through doorways of Hell.

Memories of life
become as ghostly turnstiles
that haunt us in dreams.

Various meanings
might still have views in question
that aren’t understood.

Leading off with hope
and forgetting about prayer
can leave you empty.

Sought after moments
are often the cause of pain,
for they are not good.

Greeting your heartache
with a little bit of prayer
can give you some hope.

Now is just a time
that came to be when then passed
leaving what we see.

Anticipation

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well,  another week has passed and it
looks as though most of the leaves of
autumn have come and gone.  Though
there are still a few stragglers hehehe.
Yep,  we’ve still got a few trees looking
like autumn,  but most have lost their
leaves or faded.  LOL I asked Judy this
silly question a minute ago “when does
autumn actually end and she said Dec
20 or thereabouts.  Hahaha I said do
you mean that all of those bare trees
are still showing autumn even when
there is snow on them and she said the
end of autumn timing obviously does
not apply for us up here LOL”.  Nope,
it’s a tad different than it is in my home
state Texas.  Life up here has a bit more
of a wintery feel to it than I can recall
from my growing up days in Texas 🙂
I get excited when I look outside and
see the first snowflakes to fall.  Yep,
I feel all giddy with anticipation of the
field of white and going out to play
in the snow, With My Snow Blower 🙂
I have been known to carry my conga
drums out in the snow and do a few
videos even while it’s still snowing.
Though people still say to me,  how
come you like the snow and I tell
them I grew up in Dallas and a little
town east of Dallas and snow was
not that common and even if it did
snow,  it would most often be gone
in a matter of hours.  The ground
was never cold enough to keep it
from melting.  Though,  there have
been a few times that we got maybe
a foot of snow or so,  but not that
often.  Up here it’s nothing to get a
foot of snow LOL.  We see multiple
feet of snow every year and I love it.
I love it especially for the Christmas
season.  It makes it look more like
Christmas.  Also snow makes even the
ugliest house or landscape into a piece
of art work and I take tons of pictures
of it and write loads of poetry about
it 🙂   So,  there ya go,  the reasons
I like snow hehehe.  Hopefully that
clears up that question hehehehehe.
My dad always told me I should of
been raised up north being I like the
cold weather a lot more than I do the
heat.  So,  next topic.  Actually it’s
been another slow week.  Monday
our grandson went home and then
Tuesday Judy and I went and got
us some burgers at Burger King 🙂
after we did a little bit of shopping
at Walmart.  Friday we were having
internet problems and could never
get anyone to pick up at Pioneer
Broadband,  so we drove into town
to see what was up.  The lady that
was behind the counter said they’re
working on the lines.  There had
been a major outage and that she
couldn’t even use her phone.  Our
landline was acting up as well,  so
that explained it.  Anyways,  they
got it back up and running in just
a few hours and being our landline
is through them that explains why
our phone was acting up sometimes
a dial tone and sometime static and
sometimes no dial tone at all LOL.
It’s all hunky-dory now 🙂  Yeppers
I am still writing poetry pictures.
I’m over 2 3rds of a way done with
all that I need (160) for book 9 and
then back to formatting LOL.  So,
what else has gone on around the
Pearce’s Place?  Hmm,  not much.
God is still watching over us and
He has angels working full time to
keep an eye on us and protect us.
Thank You God.  We praise Your
Name.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to begin my little journey 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 found a fairly decent title about
3 quarters of the way back and now
after checking I see that it has not
been used as of yet,  so used it shall
be.  Here goes…

Anticipation

Viewing our wantings
and unleashing hope
time starts a journey
down a slippery slope.
For anticipation
is often found seen
with what we’re wanting
as just but a dream.
Life has a way of
becoming a mess
when anticipating
the best of the best.
Leave room for changes
in your hopeful mind
and maybe just maybe
some good will unwind.
Allow for the blessings
of God from above
to fill your anticipation
with brotherly love.
Be thankful for things
no matter the day
while not anticipating
a dreamers array.
For anticipation
can become as a frown
as things anticipated
can just bring you down.

There ya go.  I hope you liked and
maybe even understood the poem 🙂
Also I hope you enjoyed all of my
rambling or a little of it hehehehehe.
Today has been fairly nice with 45 F
as the high and bright and sunny.
We’re holding off on turning on our
heat.  I’m trying to conserve.  So
far,  our computers and monitors
keep it nice and warm in here where
we are now,  I have turned on the
bedroom radiator heater time to
time for a few hours,  but I don’t
leave it on.  I just use it to take
a chill off of the 30 degree nights.
I do all that because I’m trying to
get as much money on our tab
at the oil company as possible so
that they can deliver hopefully
enough to fill our tank or nearly
fill it.  If we order less than 100
gallons it will cost 30 dollars to
deliver.  So,  now just maybe, you
understand LOL.  We do have 3
radiator heaters as well as a surge
force heater that my mom bought
us when we moved up, so we aren’t
gonna freeze unless the electricity
goes out and then they usually on
a power outage have it back up
and running in a matter of hours.
So,  now I believe 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 extra
and there are 2 Christmas poems
in the mix.  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 begin my search for that lil
ornery hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a most
wonderful and blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now,  where can that
ornery critter be hiding this week?
LOL How in the heck did you get
in my aspirin bottle?  It would of
been a great place to hide being
all jumbled up mixed with the pills,
but ya sort of got yourself trapped
huh hehehe.  I’ll let ya out you silly.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Snow Covered Pond

While time passed by
and continued on
I seemed to notice
a snow covered pond.
It laid their in wait
of more time to come
scented with flavors
of wintertime’s sun.
It knew that real soon
the snow would leave
to begin yet another
season to perceive.
A snow covered pond
still remembers the day
Christmastime came
with children at play.
All of those memories
still live deep within
this snow covered pond
of timeless transcend.
I still think about it
this pond of such style
that gave a meaning
to a Christmassy smile.
It brought me joyful
that seems to live on
found within timeless
this snow covered pond.

Summer’s Revisit

Waves that roll
on a distant shore
bring alive thoughts
of times long before.
Times remembered,
times that’s passed
summertime scenes
of a shadows cast.
Summer’s revisit
is a time long ago
a place I remember
that we used to go.
The morning’s began
with a little stroll
a walk on the beach
watching life unfold.
We took pictures
of the rolling waves
that’s now a memoir
of summertime days.
Scented with salt air
in a summer’s breeze
we began searching
more sights to seize.
While strolling along
we found great things
as timeless portions
of wonderful scenes.
Yes summer’s revisit
of a moments detail
brings alive seasons
as a wishing well.

Allhallows Eve

With pumpkins orange
and ghost of white
Allhallows Eve
becomes such a sight.
Becoming scenes
as timeless tales
with ageless doorways
it never fails.
Allhallows Eve
becomes a mere story
in the dark of night
a time so gory.
It’s words are alive
as many compete
with children dressed up
to go trick or treat.
Seeking for candy
or what the night gives
as Allhallows Eve
for what the night is.
Searching for witches
in the nighttime moon
or kids all dressed up
as a beast or a goon.
That time of year
becomes as a dream
as Allhallows Eve
displays such a scene.
A magical moment
of a time and place
where children dress up
with a gruesome face
But it’s just for fun
as the children receive
candy from each door
on Allhallows Eve.

Trekking Tracks

Autumn’s journeys
tracks of time
give the colors
wished to find.
Trekking through
while time bestows
tracks of life
the moment grows.
Seeming scented
as life moves on
when trekking tracks
in autumn’s dawn.
Found are minutes
trekking through
while walking slowly
to see each view.
A train might pass
or leave it’s gaze
for ones to enjoy
on future days.
Yet now I find I’m
snapping frames
photos taken
as time attains.
Seeking for sights
of autumn’s facts
while I was walking
trekking tracks.

Changing Phase

An autumn sight
a timid view
becomes a time
so fresh and new.
The stages change
as colors gleam
when in autumn
sights are seen.
Changing phase
from green to gold
the season shows
how times unfold.
I find blessings
in colors hue
that become my
dreams come true.
So I take pictures
of all I see
as colors become
my history.
Times to remember
are then in sight
in photographs
of seasons light.
Like a memory
of distant days
I then remember
changing phase.

Fluid Dreams

Magical places
become a view
in certain scenes
of waters blue.
Liquefied times
of a watery phase
can become one
a sight to gaze.
Fluid dreams
of pouring life
can be the cure
of timeless strife.
Allowing a stream
or river to flow
to unleash peace
wherever you go.
Fluid passion
can be as one
flowing as water
in seasons sun.
Look above you
and pray to God
while not seeking
your own applaud.
Allow the stream
or river of time
to become alive
within your mind.
Our time on Earth
has many themes
that can become
our fluid dreams.

Cloudy Sky

Heaven’s blessings
timeless true
might be clouds
in skies of blue.
Thought provoking
things we find
might have in them
change of mind.
You might only see
a time and place
as a cloudy sky
with Hells embrace,
but your eyes
might only view
what all that many
show to you.
For a cloudy sky
may hold some rain
to wash away
your daily pain
and leave you with
some bales of hay
to bring strength
from day to day.
Love and laughter
might become
a cloudy sky
with shining sun.
Not letting goodness
to run dry,
but rainbows joy
in a cloudy sky.

Hidden Within

A snow filled road
that leads to town
becomes a scene
to spread around.
A Christmas journey
becomes a quest
as time displays
that winter zest.
Hidden within it
is a time to trod
a path to Christmas
given from God.
It’s white as Heaven
and fresh and free
filled with blessings
for you and me.
A snow filled road
to bring and send
a timeless life
to then transcend.
A Christmas journey
becomes a style
a scented scene
to give us a smile.
We then imagine
dear Santa in sight
following the road
his Christmas flight.
While he displays
his quick little grin
this road of time
that’s hidden within.

Forever Bliss

Seascape scenes
of life and times
live on forever
in dreamers minds.
So many segments
of my memories
live on forever
a breath to breathe.
Life of a memoir
a time written down
displays the ocean
in sight and sound.
Time is a vessel
that sails to and fro
found as forever
how memories grow.
So many wantings
come alive within
as I dream of places
that I have been.
Upon the seashore
my sight looked upon
as ships sailed by
in the early dawn.
It was a special time
for my wife and I
as we enjoyed
the true blue sky.
We held hands tightly
at the sight of this
moment of splendor
and forever bliss.

Dream State

Within an emotion
of seasonal green
time may enlighten
a wonderful dream.
Yellow of sunlight
might then appear
as black eyed Susans
of life’s yesteryear.
Time in collusion
of scenic romance
can become vines
a rhythmic dance.
Scented of summer
as colors become
a dream state scene
the color of sun.
Black eyed Susans
appear as a style
textured with leaves
as a timeless smile.
The life of a flower
of a scenic design
can become flavors
for eyesight to dine.
Tasting the morsels
as yellowish leaves
painted by God then
the magic He weaves.
Allow for a moment
a dream state mind
to blossom with love
a wonderful find.

Smallest Reflections

Sometimes pleasures
become hid away
inside of our minds
a reflected array.
The smallest of sorts
can become great
as its reflections
so timeless await.
Smallest reflections
can show the most
making the others
white as a ghost.
A pond of so small
can reflect its mind
all that encompasses
for ones to find.
Places we uncover
with footsteps made
can be the smallest
but greatest to wade.
Look for the beauty
in smallest of ponds
smallest reflections
as greatest of songs.
Sung of the season
trickles in view
smallest reflections
that come unto you.
Open your eyes up
and see what’s there
smallest reflections
answers to prayer.

Haiku
for Oct 13,  2018

Without our struggles
we would become very weak,
for struggles give strength.

Life is a doorway
that displays many journeys,
some good and some bad.

The mist of morning
might be just a passing scene
waiting to be viewed.

Windows of nature
open up with some lifestyles
alien to you.

On beyond the sky
ones may be looking down here
thinking we’re stupid.

A field of moments
is often some butterflies
with wings of beauty.

Dusting off your life
and blessing it with goodness
can help you with change.

Tomorrows problems
can be fueled by today’s actions
so don’t be foolish.

Living in the now
can often be depressing,
but it is wisest.

Searching for true love
can uncover many flaws
as we are human.

Trials of emotion
becomes a journey through time
that might seem so wrong.

The patterns of style
within every breath we breathe
can expose our truth.

Planting a garden
that will fulfill our lifestyle
needs some good choices.

Timeless illusions
may become all that we see
if we only dream.

Look passed your sorrow
and see the chances for smiles
that live in a prayer.

Painting without paint
is like breathing without breath,
for it needs some life.

Looking inside time
you will find many seconds
that connect our views.

Changing our viewpoints
might also change our anger
into acceptance.

Beneath the moonlight
holds many dreams to come true
if we allow them.

Belonging to a group
does not make you as they are,
but some might find facts.

Various seedlings
of a garden of nature
can be bad for you.

Sitting in a pool
just enjoying the moment
can become stagnant.

The Struggles

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you’ve had a nice weekend and
the passed week was not to busy for ya.
Judy and I enjoyed our anniversary. Of
course we didn’t do it on Oct 2nd due
to it being rainy looking and all,  but
we did go Oct 3rd last Wednesday.  We
took an autumn picture taking drive
and we took a ton of pictures.  Then we
went to the Governor’s Restaurant in
Presque Isle like we do almost every
year.  My mom sent us some money
to help us celebrate our anniversary
as well as Judy’s birthday on Nov 6.
Thank you mom.  We love you tons.
So we had a good time.  Also the dog
gate that Judy ordered came and we
set it up to keep the boys out of the
living room.  The gate has a gate door
in it that we can open to walk through
so we don’t have to step over it.  We
love it.  I also got the same day,  the
Christmas lights that I ordered when
our old ones quit working.  Judy and
I put them on our Christmas trees,
one in the living room and one on the
porch.  The living room looks a lot
better since we reorganized it.  Our
youngest grandson came yesterday
to spend a couple of days with us 🙂
Judy had hair night last night at her
daughter’s house (Christian’s mom)
Judy’s sisters and her daughters all
dyed their hair and it seems Christian
got in the middle of it too.  Anyways,
he came home with Judy.  I fixed us
all pancakes, eggs and sausage for
breakfast.  I made enough that we
can have them again tomorrow,  so
I don’t have to cook again LOL.
I’m going to try and make this short
so that I can spend time with our
grandson.  The temperature at the
moment is 47 F degrees at 3:30 PM.
The high for today is supposed to be
53 F,  but I don’t think it’s going to
make it LOL.  LOL it also looks as
though my weather program is a
tad off saying it’s CLEAR,  when
blue sky is nowhere in sight LOL.
Oh well,  the weather guys are just
guessing which gives reason for the
term FORECAST hehehe.  It’s just
a prediction.  It’s not written in stone.
So,  what else is there to tell ya that
I haven’t already told ya?  Well it
seems that there is another person
interested in becoming our neighbor.
He came when I was cooking and
I had to holler just a minute.  He
asked about the owner renting and
I told him he’s down the road the
first house on the right.  Anyways,
we shall see what happens hehehe.
We’ve most surely gone through the
neighbors.  As it sits we’re Calvin’s
longest renters,  being we’ve been
here for almost 11 years.  It will be
11 years December 1st.  We like it
out here.  The boys can run free
and where we live we don’t worry
about them getting in the road 🙂
There’s a big field in front of our
house that they can play in.  They
love it when Judy and I go out
with them 🙂  They know they’re
not allowed to go way out in the
field without one of us.  They’ll
only go so far and stop if we’re
not with them.  Anyways,  that’s
about all I can think of to tell ya
right now.  God has been good to
us.  He’s made sure that we are
taken care of.  Of course we do
have a few problems,  but without
problems there is no growth.  It’s
the struggles in our life that make
us stronger.  Thank You God for
all of the blessings You’ve put in
our life and all that we know that
You will.  Now I believe it’s time
for me to begin my journey back
through all that I’ve written here,
to see if I can find a good word
or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem.
So,  it’s away I go,  to that place
of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
Hmm I think I spotted a fairly
decent title just a few lines back.
I’ve used a similar title,  but not
the same,  so here goes…

The Struggles

Many problems
help us grow
giving lessons
we should know.
For the struggles
now and then
bring us blessings
to begin.
Time’s a venture
doors to swing
as the struggles
are then seen.
Yet we so often
only view
all the problems
found so blue.
Look for lessons
through the pages
in the struggles
through our ages.
Try your best
to understand
that the struggles
help us stand.
For if no one
struggled through,
life would have no
good to view.
Being the struggles
help us to see
the good from bad
of you and me.

There ya go 🙂  I hope you enjoyed my
poem and maybe even understood it.
Also I hope you enjoyed my rambling.
Hopefully I made you smile.  Well,  I
didn’t make this as short and sweet as
I thought I would LOL.  It seems that
my old rambling mind kicks in gear
and there almost no stopping it LOL.
Oh yea,  one of my friends Sara asked
me to put in a prayer for her mom,
so send prayers to my friend Sara W
and her mom.  Thank you.  I think
that’s all there is to say other than
what I tell you every week and that is
I wrote some more poems and haiku.
I wrote 10 more poems and 4 of them
are Christmas poems HoHoHo hehehe.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either or both
that you like.  Now I do believe it is
time for me to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but
not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
where can that ornery off switch be
trying to hide this week?  Hmmmm,
LOL 🙂 hiding behind my Ventolin
respirator again huh hehehehehehe.
Will you ever learn.  Hiding behind
something that small is a guarantee
that you’ll be seen.  I use it time to
time ya know.  Better luck next week.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Early Autumn

Beneath the sky
of an autumn day
my eyes perceived
a wondrous display.
Colors becoming
a sight then to see
in early autumn
each distant tree.
The leaves slowly
beginning to change
becoming colors
for times to attain.
The autumn air
an awesome breath
then comes alive
as times conquest.
Yet early autumn
is just but a few
of leaves to change
their daily hue.
Scenes come alive
as time procures
tempting the eyes
as daily lures.
Yes early autumn
is time well spent
that’s not of cash
but Heaven sent.
It is a wonderful
time thereunto
when early autumn
brings more to view.

Searching Time

With every wave
that comes ashore
our lives may find
a little bit more.
Scenic wonders
of a time or place
might come in view
with a little taste.
Distant memories
and distant seas
may find your eyes
as lock and keys.
Holding tightly
to a ocean scene
or maybe a time
found in between.
Life has emotion
as it exposes truth
things remembered
from your youth.
Searching time
might find a way
to discover signs
of another day.
A day of blessings
or a day of fear
that is remembered
of another year.
Passing minutes
become as a rhyme
maybe as an ocean
searching time.

Anticipating

Life for a moment
might seem to be
as a duck in snow
found so wintery.
We might perceive
it a Christmas theme
a time anticipated,
a wonderful dream.
For anticipation
puts forth a style
as ducks of winter
just waiting a while.
Thinking of Santa
his journey through
while anticipating
what he’ll bring you.
The moment begins
as a passing thought
a time that portrays
a mallard’s flock.
It might bring to life
a time in your mind
as a wintery theme
of Christmastime.
For anticipating
can bring in sight
a wonderful moment
of Santa in flight.
Yet as your looking
anticipating scenes
your own perception
might only be dreams.

Standing Waiting

On a snowy day
with scenes of white
time starts moving
left ways and right.
The clock’s ticking
repeating a sound
found as memories
that just go around.
I’m standing waiting
for time to arrive
a Christmassy scene
to tickle my eyes.
Making me laugh
with a jolly smile
standing waiting
for a little while.
Time is a footstep
that comes in view
as we remember,
but a little off cue.
Yet as our emotions
are then so elating
the blessings arrive
when standing waiting.

Winter’s Sky

Some distant scenes
come into play
times surmounting
day to day.
Words as snowflakes
create each view
a textured moment
shining through.
Some distant hills
reach to the sky
seeking doorways
mountain high.
A Christmas theme
of life and times
becomes a thresholds
scenic signs.
Among the passage
time begins
seeking shelter
winter’s winds.
But yet the vision
times record
are as blessings
from The Lord.
A scene of wonder
a scene of bliss
a scene of Christmas
a timeless kiss.
This is my memory
I cannot deny
a time of Christmas
winter’s sky.

Epic Dreams

A mound of snow
in timeless days
begins a venture
in its ways.
With epic dreams
of scenes so sweet
seeming painted
times complete.
There might be
a glance or two
of a puppy dog
an epic view.
With winter’s style
and life complete
he runs about
with tiny feet.
Making pathways
in the snow
as he’s running
to and fro.
He may look back
at you that day
and then proceed
to run and play.
A Christmas sight
that came alive
while he awaited
for it to arrive.
This is a moment
of wonderful scenes
that gives to me
my epic dreams.

Splendorous Places

Waters of emotion
pour like gold
in scenic places
times have told.
Life as splendor
from far away
becomes as a scene
a wonderful way.
Splendorous places
of times we find
unload a pathway
within the mind.
Take in the essence
breathe in the hue
a peaceful moment
that comes in view.
Allow the minutes
to just drift away
becoming peaceful
a wondrous array.
The pain of life
and your suffering
might fade away
in a rushing stream.
Then as the trees
of timeless detail
become as a dream
of a wishing well,
look for the sights
with smiling faces
found then within
splendorous places.

Sequential Bliss

Countrified living
brings into view
scenes oh so blissful
as sounds of a coo.
Life is a display
that so many see
as that of a moment
so happy and free.
Sequential bliss
of a page out of time
brings forth a scene
sequentially a rhyme.
Brushstrokes of life
in an epic affair
display the minutes
as answers to prayer.
Scenic with passion
pours out like gold
as sequential bliss
that moments unfold.
An old wagon wheel
might be the design
that’s laid in a field
as reflections of time.
Pictures worth taking
to remember so well
bring alive blissful
as a story to tell.
A time’s recollection
a seasonal kiss
awakens perception
of sequential bliss.

Time Well Spent

A bridge of style
of time and place
now sits a while
with trodden face.
It holds within it
a distant view
what many forget
of old and new.
It opens real wide
a covered bridge
with words inside
above a ridge.
I walked within
and saw it’s past
that came to end
as shadows cast.
Time’s perception
brought my sight
a mere connection
of seasons light.
It was that of art
a painting of time
a time to impart
a wondrous design.
My eyes could see
it’s weathered ways
that makes history
great to gaze.
I saw this scene
as Heaven sent
it seemed a dream
and time well spent.

Moment’s Release

Just like a bird
upon a limb
life gives way
for now and then.
Minutes gather
perceptions view
as each moment
changes hue.
Moment’s release
is given style
a choice to seek
a second’s smile.
For the hours
of the days
become minutes
gathered gaze.
We might see
a bird in flight
to land and rest
within our sight.
That might be
a moment’s prayer
upon a limb
in evenings air.
To me it shows
moment’s release.
God displaying
a way of peace.

Haiku
for Oct 6,  2018

Above and beyond
is a spiritual thing
perceived as Heaven.

Links to our lifestyles
might be hidden in others
that we do not know.

In search of our dreams
can create a few nightmares
that dreams turn into.

Sometimes fantasies
can turn real for a moment,
but then fade away.

Universal time
is used when connecting dots
between you and I.

Shimmering evenings
might show signs of some sunlight
through the distant trees.

Personal lifestyles
are often perceived as bad,
when hidden from you.

Challenges of life
can become many problems
or make you stronger.

Bringing hate with you
to a new life to be seen
can destroy chances.

Today’s gates opened
when yesterday’s gates were closed,
but baggage reminds.

People and places
are significant signs
of where we have been.

When searching the sky
you might see a cloud or two
that looks like a dream.

Rainbows of our lives
are often found in others
as they display peace.

Looking through windows
does not always show the truth,
for words are hidden.

Inside of the mind
holds many ways of thinking
to create problems.

Leaping over life,
not doing what you should do
can find you empty.

Without a few weeds
we would know any struggles
for they help us grow.

Within a small room
holds many claustrophobic
in search of windows.

Today can be good
if we allow it to be
while the bad exist.

Gradient sunshine
pours down from an evening sky
as clouds blow away.

Seen as a liar
ones will never believe you
if you hide the truth.

Displayed as flowers
some might try to deceive you
as they’re only weeds.

Waiting To Be Written

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s just me here at the house right now.
Judy has gone to celebrate her sister’s
grandsons birthday at the bowling alley
in Caribou Maine about 45 miles north
of here.  She’ll be home later on today.
It’s just me and the little boys hanging
out together now.  Of course they’re in
the bedroom and lying on our bed LOL.
For those that are new to this,  our boys
are our 2 dogs Benny and Rocky.  Yes
we talk about them as if they were our
real boys hehehe.  The Pearce’s Place
has been running in slow mo these last
few weeks LOL.  Judy and I haven’t
done much,  although we are making
plans for when we get paid to celebrate
our 17 year wedding anniversary which
is Tuesday Oct 2 🙂  But of course right
now we are out of funds so we’ll have
to wait till we get paid to consider what
to do to celebrate.  No matter,  as long
as we’re together,  that’s all that matters.
It’s beginning to look more and more
like autumn outside and feel like it too.
Yep,  the weather has been on the cool
side lately,  but then I prefer it on the
cool side rather than the sweaty heat.
Of course it doesn’t get as hot up here
as it does down Texas ways.  I got to
thinking the other day that I hadn’t
taken any pictures lately,  so Friday
morning I took the car while Judy was
asleep and went on a photograph hunt.
I’d park the car ever so often when I
saw something or some place that I
thought looked good and headed out
walking.  I got quite a few great shots
and many of them I’ll be able to use
for my poetry pictures 🙂  Yes,  I am
still writing poetry pictures.  I’m over
halfway done writing for book 9 now.
I’ve written 102 poetry pictures and
now only 58 to go and off to publish.
Yep,  I write a lot.  It along with my
photography keeps me out of trouble 🙂
A person with an over active mindset
can be dangerous LOL especially when
he has a crazy sense of humor hehehe.
Ask Judy,  she’ll tell ya.  I’m a regular
comedian in the house especially when
I get tired hahaha.  Judy’s gotten used
to it 🙂  She’s still as of yet not figured
out how I can sit down at my desk and
write a poem in a matter of minutes 🙂
For that matter,  I too have no clue.
I just do it.  I guess it’s a gift from God.
It’s a gift that I got when I was in my
much younger years.  I was around 7
or 8 years old when poetry began its
life within my mind,  but it was much
later in life that I figured out what to
do with it.  Before then I was just
writing what was bothering me at the
moment or something that had been
on my mind for a while.  Now I can
look at a photo and find a poem that
is waiting to be written.  Anyways,
what else has happened around this
place?  Hmm good question.  Judy
and I cleaned our carpets pretty good
using her sister’s carpet cleaner.  They
look a whole lot better now.  I think
we might be buying a carpet cleaner
or a steam cleaner one day when we
have a little money to do so.  Until
then,  we’ll borrow Trudes from time
to time.  I see that Judy’s been posting
pictures on Facebook of the little boys
birthday at the bowling alley LOL…
Life up here in Maine is not as bad
as many southerners think.  From my
view up here knowing how it is in down
in Texas being I was born and raised
there,  I can tell you,  I do not miss the
super hot summers that caused me to
have many strokes and the loss of my
left eye.  Nope,  I cannot handle that
much heat.  Anything near 80 F degrees
is too hot for me and thank God we
don’t have many days with that much
heat and when we do,  I hole up in here
near the air conditioner hehehe.  Yep,
this is where I should be.  God put me
up here,  for He connected the dots of
life that put Judy and I together from
over 2100 miles away.  God is always
with us watching over us.  We’ve also
many angels looking over us,  for there
are times I can sense them.  Thank You
God for all that You do for us and all
You’ve done for us and will do.  Now I
believe it’s time for me to be taking my
little venture back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem.  So
it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title just about half way back
in my rambling and after checking,  I
see that it hasn’t been used as of yet
but used it shall be today,  so now to
see if I can do anything with it 🙂
Here goes…

Waiting To Be Written

Words of a moment
might come into play
waiting to be written
with something to say.
Yet many times though
the words might appear
to be as a memory
of a distant yesteryear.
We might often display
a time’s broken heart
as words within a story
that’s now a work of art.
It may become a scene
as blessings in disguise
waiting to be written
in a dreamers own eyes.
Then as it develops
this God given view
the moment with words
writes something anew.
Time is but a doorway
that opens then again
waiting to be written
as our thoughts enter in.
Telling a moment’s story
of a time or a place
painted with the mind
of a scene or a taste.
Allow your eyes to see
beyond all that’s there
and let your imagination
to take you everywhere.
A God given journey
to find a time or two
waiting to be written
of what that lives in you.
It might surely exist
as a mere breath of time
waiting to be written
of a wondrous design.

There ya go.  It might make no sense to
you,  but oh well.  Maybe a few of you
will understand it.  It’s not that complex.
I hope you enjoyed my rambling and
all 🙂  I guess my mind is busy thinking
of stuff that would matter not to you 🙂
I am getting ready everyday for winter
to make its showing.  I can’t wait for
the first sight of snowflakes LOL.  Yes
I know,  you think I’m strange hehehe.
Oh well,  that’s how God made me 🙂
I guess 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, but 3 of them are
Christmas poems.  Oh yea there is 1
extra poem I wrote for my daughter’s
birthday yesterday.  I also wrote 22
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.  Now I do
believe it’s time to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a fabulous weekend,
or whatever’s left of it and a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now,  where can
that ornery off switch be trying to hide
this time?  Hmm,  I see my camera
strap sort of swaying when it shouldn’t
be LOL.  Oh there ya are ya little brat.
Did you have an oopsy moment????
Trying to hide behind my camera but
ya slipped and fell and now you’re
hanging on to the strap just a swinging.
LOL Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Throughout Our Lives

Links to perception
are as times dusty trails
connected as a chain
in so many details.
Throughout our lives
we might see some days
connections perceptions
a bit out of phase.
Life is as a doorway
to a fisherman’s heart
scented times survival
an ocean’s work of art.
Trials of the waves
that the days supersede
bring forth more artwork
to be planted as a seed.
Throughout our lives
our wishes might become
the sight of an ocean
or a bright morning sun.
Looking through windows
of our lifestyles parade
we might see a portion
of life’s lemonade.
Painted with the fingers
of God’s holy hand
on throughout our lives
many places so grand.
Time’s always ticking
with clouds passing by
as a fisherman’s story
on throughout our lives.

Winter Cabin

Seasons stories
start to tell
life and times
a wishing well.
Scenes become
a Christmas sight
a winter cabin
snow of white.
Within the walls
you might hear
someone singing
Christmas cheer.
Season’s memoir
finds a place
written clearly
a smiling face.
A winter cabin
wood design
shares the sight of
Christmastime.
But this might be
just a dream
a winter cabin
all agleam.
For as minutes
pass you by
the scene you see
shows Adonai.
The look of God
found thereunto
a winter cabin
Christmas view.

When Coming Home

A snow filled journey
on a winter white day
displays such a pattern
in a wonderful way.
A Christmas arrival
with a passionate kiss
is an awaited arrival
on my Christmas list.
For as all the minutes
and hours pass by
they leave me wanting
the seconds to fly.
Within my minds eye
were Christmassy bells
of old Santa’s sleigh
in the greatest details.
Hovering high above
my wife as she drove
home for the season
as a red Christmas rose.
The car all glistened
with ice all aglow
as she drove home in
Christmas white snow.
I stood in the road
and waited with a smile
as she drove homeward
that very last mile.
She drove up to me
standing all alone
and I climbed in then
when coming home.

Time’s Exposed

Beneath a scene
of waters ways
there might be
some other days.
A time to thrive,
a time to sleep,
a time to find
a new heartbeat.
Time’s exposed
as gazes afar
when we search
each shining star.
We might see
a fin of style
a dolphins scene
to give a smile.
We may even see
a timeless day
that only shows
how seconds sway.
Within the waves
of life’s desires
we might be seen
as wanted fires.
Burning churning
above each scene
time’s exposed
as a submarine.
We might be fins
with life enclosed
floating on through
as time’s exposed.

Stepping Lightly

Waves of days
we step on through
might become
a sea of blue.
But yet the waves
that are incomplete
might one day
be at our feet.
Waiting for chances
to strive again
while we’re stepping
in the wind.
Seasons gestures
become a stance
a time and place
for hearts romance.
For as we step
from time to time
our eye’s might see
a moment’s mind.
Not seeing truthful
of the waves
we might be blinded
of the days.
So watch your step
within the flow
for beneath the waves
you might not know
Allow the moments
to find your path
stepping lightly
not too fast.

Then and Again

Each passage we see
might fall from our eyes
as a time and a place
that we don’t memorize.
But then and again
we might surely see
the signs of the times
that live in you and me.
Snowflakes falling
as a Christmastime hue
scented with laughter
from children in view.
A scene you remember
a scene you recall
a scene within winter
as the snowflakes fall.
The minutes become as
a doorway to see
to become as a part
of our own history.
For I can remember
those days oh so clear
the then and again
of a past yesteryear.
They are as echoes
of a Christmas delight
textured as heartbeats
that fell out of sight.
But they’re remembered
a Christmas back when
seen as a doorway of
then and again.

A Place Of Love

A bridge of life
becomes as time
a place of love
from God Divine.
As life begins
to journey through
a place of love
is then in view.
It might be seen
as just a time
a bridge of life
within your mind.
Yet the journey
is what we need
to continue on
to plant the seed.
The seed of life
in Heaven’s ways
a place of love
comes into phase.
For as we strive
to walk across
we will find
there’s not a loss,
but only find
a place of gain
a place of love
with Hells abstain.
So when your time
comes unto be
a place of love
will set you free.

Sudden Sights

Cloudy skies
with a little blue
can give our eyes
a wondrous view.
Sudden sights
become a glance
as hills begin
a sight’s romance.
With each scene
that times expose
the sudden sights
can be arose.
Brought to life
as a breath of air
sudden sights
so debonair.
Magical moments
come in view
to show and flow
a sight anew.
For as the pages
of life’s design
the sudden sights
fill up the mind.
Scenic mysteries
become a day
as the minutes
slip away.
Time is essence
days and nights
showing many
sudden sights.

Dreaming Place

Midmorning’s gaze
can become found
a time and place
to look around.
Amidst of a moment
a time come true
a dreaming place
can come in view.
It could be a pond
or a tree line’s phase
that displays to you
a time to gaze.
Such as discoveries
your eyes perceive
as a dreaming place
within mornings eve.
The day brings life
into such a scene
found as so magical
it must be a dream.
Seen as a vision
a time within view
this dreaming place
gives life to you.
It might be regarded
as a point in time
within a dreamworld
that you wish to find.
So look within you
for a smiling face
found in the magic
of a dreaming place.

It Peeked Through

Upon the beach
of time’s romance
I saw the sky
do a little dance.
The sun is seen
through the gray
the clouds above
a summer’s day.
It peeked through
to say hello
with waves of life
and how they flow.
I stood a while
to search beyond
to find the sight
of then and gone.
It was as waves
that rolled on in
to say hello
and roll out again.
It brought the sky
alive with grace
and put a smile
upon my face.
This memory
of a timeless stage
lives and breathes
from age to age.
It was a time
with an ocean blue
I saw the sun as
it peeked through.

My Little Girl

She’s my blossom
my child so true
giving the breath
as an awesome view.
I can remember
when she was small
looking up at me
thinking me so tall.
Time went running
leaving me to find
her growing up
turning thirty nine.
Yes my little girl
has a child her own
now that is surely
almost full grown.
I miss you Jamye
and I send our love
from Judy and I
and God up above.

Haiku
for Sept 29,  2018

Hearing an echo
might become as memories
that times will expose.

Lost in a whirlwind
your sight might become dizzy
leading you wrong ways.

The life of a rose
is often not what we see,
but what we don’t see.

Misleading journeys
can become daily pathways
if we’re not careful.

A snowflakes lifestyle
can become as a snowman
or a snow angel.

Trees that show colors
as autumn’s season unwinds
will soon lose their leaves.

Beyond a raindrop
holds the perfection of time
that pours like water.

Looming memories
can create a minds turnstile
that repeats problems.

Looking too sternly
can cause someone to wonder
what’s bothering you.

The sight of a cloud
does not mean that it will rain,
but there is a chance.

Our bookmarks on time
can cause some other moments
to be remembered.

Belief in something
might cause it to become real
within your own eyes.

Need is confusion
when want overrides ones minds
leaving them empty.

Despair of the grass
is hidden behind seasons
as snow lands on it.

Changing your mindset
can help you or cause problems
for it’s how you choose.

Looking to the sky
you might see life as a dream
with clouds all adrift.

Lost on a dirt road
you might see dust behind you
that helps you return.

The weeds of our life
might be dandelions
acting like flowers.

Links to someone’s life
might have a few links missing
that weakens their heart.

Within our shadows
holds many forms of ourselves
that people will see.

Life in the slow lane
is often the better way,
but it’s not always.

A birds view of life
is how the wind carries it
to destinations.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

This passed week has been slower than
usual.  We had a week with neither us
with doctor visits LOL and the days we
went to town it was raining and or just a
bit too cloudy to get good pictures from
a moving vehicle LOL.  I do have some
good news.  Judy and will be celebrating
our 17th year wedding anniversary Oct
2,  Tuesday after next,  although we may
have to postpone celebrating until we
get our Social Security :).  We’re kind of
strapped for cash now LOL,  but all is
well.  It doesn’t seem like 17 years has
passed.  We have experienced so many
things together that we may of never
experienced alone.  She saw the ocean
and dolphins and I saw a ton of snow 🙂
Yes we’ve seen a whole lot more than
that together,  but no sense in rattling
about that LOL.  Wintertime is already
knocking loudly on our door.  It was
around 30 F degrees this morning and
it’s supposed to be a low of 29 Monday
morning,  Anyways,  we’re enjoying a
little reprieve from the warm weather.
I can’t sleep when it’s near or above
80 F degrees.  Plus when the humidity
gets up,  it makes it hard to sleep and
that rarely happens in cold weather 🙂
So,  what else is going on around this
place?  Hmm,  well to be honest,  not
much.  We rearranged our living room
and I think it looks a lot better now.
Judy used her sister’s carpet cleaner
and worked on the living room and our
bedroom.  The carpets were overdue
a cleaning that a vacuum cleaner just
doesn’t do.  Anyways,  for those of
you getting the stationery version of
my journal,  I put 3 pictures of our
living room LOL.  There are very few
pictures in this weeks stationery due
to the weather and all,  but I’m sure
that will change.  Especially when the
fall colors start appearing 🙂 and that
shouldn’t be far off.  Right now at
5:30 PM it’s 52 F degrees.  Not too
bad 🙂  LOL I keep looking outside
searching for snowflakes.  I do love
snow ya know hehehe.   I don’t know
why so many hate the snow.  It’s so
pretty as it makes artwork out of so
many things that otherwise would
look rather boring.  Yep,  I love the
snow.  LOL believe it or not I love
to go out and play in it.  Many times
I’ll take the boys outside and throw
snowballs for them to chase and TRY
to catch.  The only part about snow
that I don’t like is when it melts and
becomes slush and then refreezes to
become a nightmare of ice.  That’s
when I am ready for it to end hehehe.
Though so often it will snow again
and make it beautiful again and that
puts a big smile on my face.  I think
one of the reasons I don’t mind the
snow too much is because we’ve got
a good battery powered snow blower
and snow shovel that do most of the
work.  Also our landlord does it or
has someone to plow our driveway for
us.  Living up here isn’t everybody’s
cup of java or tea LOL.  Most surely
we’ve been blessed.  Thankfully Judy
and I have each other and these 2 lil
boys of ours to keep our hearts alive.
God is always watching over us as
well as his many angels that He’s sent
to protect us.  Yes we have our fair
share of problems,  but together with
God we survive.  I reckon 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
will work 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 have found me a
decent title less than a third of a way
back through my rambling.  Now,
to see if I can do anything with it 🙂
Here goes…

Beautiful Again

When times of torment
have done their best
to wear on your nerves
to make you feel less.
Look for the moments
that time passes by
and sort through scenes
find reasons and why.
Then as you’re looking
find the best days
that you can remember
the best then to gaze.
Find your reflection
in scenes that you see
and then look closer
let them once again be.
Become beautiful again
as you saw of a time
and make that your view
that’s seen in your mind.
Don’t allow others to
tell you what’s true
if they only know
what all that they view.
For we’re all different
and not all a ten,
but yet to another
we’re beautiful again.

There ya go.  I felt the need to write
of that nature.  I have a friend that
ones have been insulting her because
she is over weight,  but she has lost
450 pounds and at least she is trying.
To me she is a beautiful soul.  She
has a pretty smile.  She has a lot of
weight yet to lose,  but she is doing
it.  Some people can be so cruel.  We
each have our different looks about
us and to one person they might not
be attracted,  but to another find love.
What I am trying to say is,  don’t be
so quick to judge,  for what’s on the
outside might not concur with what
that’s within.  So now I guess it’s time
for me to tell you what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems and 3 of them are Christmas
poems.  I also wrote once again 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
think it’s time for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a
wonderful weekend or whatever is
left of it and a truly blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Ok,  so where are
ya hiding at this week ya ornery lil
thing?  Hmm,  do my eyes deceive
me or am I seeing my orange juice
glass tipping just a tad?  Yep.  there
ya are.  LOL you were thirsty and
were trying to get a drink!  You’re
an on off switch for crying out loud.
You don’t drink hehehehehehehe.
Ok maybe a sip,  but that’s all 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK hehehehe.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Painted Bird

One day in time
my eyes did see
a painted bird
so wishfully.
It sought to fly
in canvass white
fluttered feathers
day and night.
Yet it’s found
a painted view
on a canvass
without blue.
No sky above
a painted scene,
it only sees but
leaves of green,
with some brown
as trees of paint
this bird seems
a little faint.
It only wants
to fly away
this painted bird
to a brighter day.
But for now
its life’s inferred
showing only
a painted bird.

Eyesight’s Escape

Through our eyes
we might perceive
a place in time
ones don’t believe.
It might display
a wonderful view
essence of life
that’s just for you.
You may be alone
in your vision quest
eyesight’s escape
from east to west.
God given sights
might come alive
and display scenes
just for your eyes.
Your description
might help ones see
eyesight’s escape
that God gave free.
It might become
the greatest sight
to see by day
and also by night.
Allow your eyes
to become a voice
as ones look close
to see you rejoice.
Then your view
of a size or shape
can live with them
an eyesight’s escape.

Just Like Smoke

A summer’s sky
of clouds designs
forms a phrase
for many minds.
Seen as dancers
clouds unite
just like smoke
that times invite.
A true blue sky
displays its soul
with the clouds
that then unfold.
Dancing prancing
here and there
just like smoke
in a puff of air.
God given scenes
that float on by
follow a breeze
in a true blue sky.
They may become
a darkened tint
filled with rain
in times extent.
Changing always
their daily goal
in their journeys
how they blow.
So look and see
the whitish cloak
God’s own beauty
just like smoke.

Snow Filled Scenes

Seasonal passages
become as a glow
scented of Christmas
white as the snow.
Time’s but a page
of a story book
tempting the eyes
for another look.
Snow filled scenes
displayed so true
found in a portion
a Christmas view.
Many stay inside
while keeping warm
not seeing Christmas
its wonderful charm.
The epic adventures
that become alive
snow filled scenes
sweets for the eyes.
Snowflakes gather
to become a sight
while falling down
daylight and night.
Then as if magic
the season appears
found in snowflakes
my heart endears.
I think of Christmas
and snow filled scenes
as they come alive
deep in my dreams.

Driving To Town

Those wintry days
and snow of white
display a phase
of times delight.
On a little drive
to town one day
sights came alive
in a magical way.
A snow filled road
became a scene
a time bestowed
just like a dream.
It looked so great
a Christmas sight
this time and date
amidst daylight.
The minutes found
a heartbeat’s way
all there around
a Christmas day.
Yet it’s the past
as future bestows
what all that lasts
in winter’s snow.
Scenes of wonder
scenes of bliss
displayed asunder
a moment’s kiss.
This is a moment
that minutes found
as a memory
driving to town.

Behind A Mask

So many act
and are not true
what they say
and what they do.
So many hide
behind a mask
to then portray
another task.
Hiding behind
a made up world
created by
what lies unfurled.
Different textures
different days
becomes ones
another phase.
A life’s portrayal
might succumb
to the act
of a liars drum,
but the truth
will be revealed
behind a mask
what time concealed.
So don’t allow
your daily task
to hide away
behind a mask.

Time Creates

Through the doors
of memories
comes the sight of
times at ease.
Watching the days
passing by
found beneath a
northern sky.
The days and weeks
become the past
as time creates
our shadows cast.
With just a phase
of then and there
it passes by
as a breath of air.
A breathed emotion
time set free
to become a part
of history.
A moment’s recalled
upon some logs
my wife and I
with our two dogs.
We watched the days
as oceans seas
with grass of green
and nearby trees.
What we remember
of different dates
shows that of God
how time creates.

Season Of Wonder

Life’s a magical
change that becomes
seasonal doorways
times beating drums.
With winter’s snow
comes seasonal style
textures of snowflakes
that form as a smile.
Christmas so joyful
becomes as a way
scented with flavors
of day after day.
There may be a sight
of dogs in the snow
watching and waiting
with hearts all aglow.
With winds of winter
Christmastime too
the season of wonder
is clearly in view.
I head out blissfully
to join in the fun
tossing some snowballs
to watch our dogs run.
It’s a Christmassy day
of a wonderful while
time frames displaying
as snowflakes compile.
Yes it’s but a day
of a timeless degree
a season of wonder
so happy and free.

Charismatic Scenes

Hills in the distance,
rivers that will flow
display the quality
a charismatic show.
Scenes telling stories
of seasonal delight
can become memoirs
a past shining light.
We so often pass up
the best there’s to see
as we go life ways
ignoring what’s free.
So many pay money
to act as they’re gold
overlooking blessings
from ages of old.
Charismatic scenes
of a timeless display
are often passed up
by greeds wanting way.
Look beyond money
and look beyond fame,
and see all the beauty
that needs to remain.
Don’t allow greediness
to become all you are.
Look for the beauty
a bright shining star.
It might be landscapes
as windows of time,
charismatic scenes
from Lord God divine.

Clouded Minds

Through our thoughts
a cloud may form
filled with problems
distraught and torn.
Scenes might become
a storm on the way
a time within time
with clouds of gray.
Lose that perception
and look for a view
one that is better
in a sky of blue.
Then use your mind
to create a smile
one that of beauty
one that of style.
Seek a time’s vision
remembered so true
a time of passion
that still lives in you.
Allow your mindset
to become a dream
a time you remember
as a clear blue stream.
Maybe of a moment
your childhood days
scented with emotion
in so many ways.
Don’t allow bitterness
to be your designs.
Look for the beauty
within clouded minds.

Haiku
for Sept 22,  2018

Life in a hurry
will create many regrets
that passed as shadows.

In search of today
you might find some yesterdays
hopes for tomorrow.

Without times of past
no lessons are taught to you
so find thanks in then.

Viewing your problems
needs eyes for understanding
and learning to change.

Gateways to heartbeats
are as seasons to a dream
chancing to be real.

Within blades of grass
are the emotions of life
waiting to be mowed.

Yesterday’s flowers
might have blooms for tomorrow
that you do not see.

Living trees of life
are as many perspectives
found in many eyes.

Often our doorways
will become cluttered with thoughts
of which way to choose.

Bringing forth sunshine
from a clouded mind of sight
needs a little rain.

To cleanse a pathway
you need prayer to begin
and then start walking.

Belief in Heaven
gives hope for a tomorrow
that is without pain.

Counting your blessings
can keep you focused on peace,
counting pain does not.

Leaves on the trees
are as clocks ticking away
to grow or to fall.

The harvest of crops
can provide food for many
and work for others.

Lost in a dreamworld
reality might evade
until you wake up.

Glancing at the moon
you might see clouds drifting by
creating journeys.

Cheating on others
can awaken karma’s eyes
to do unto you.

Beneath emotions
holds a pool of reasoning
of why that you are.

At the close of day
begins a journey through night
that wakes up the stars.

Beyond piles of leaves
is a statement from autumn
bidding us goodbye.

Winter brings a stage
that is formed from desire
of its location.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another week gone by as we’ve
reached the mid portion of September 🙂
The passed week has been without much
other than me getting my Shingles virus
vaccination.  Judy is on the list to get it
as well,  but there is a long waiting list.
Anyways,  we’re still hanging in there as
we’re waiting for autumn to awaken with
its many colorful leaves.  Then I’ll be
searching for the first signs of winter
and the first snowflakes to fall from the
sky.  My daughter Jamye is trying to
find a way to make it up for Christmas,
but she keeps running into problems.
I hope she is able to get her problems
resolved and make it up,  but it is in
God’s hands and what  ever happens
will happen.  I am praying for her and
her daughter (my granddaughter Sami).
So,  what else is there to tell ya?  Well.
it’s been a little warm up this ways this
passed week.  The highest temperature
though has been but only 80 F degrees.
Today the high is 75 F degrees but it
has already cooled a bit being now it’s
around 72 F degrees.  We’re expecting
a little rain to come Tuesday evening 🙂
but we all know,  that could change.
So,  what else is going on here at the
Pearce’s Place?  Judy borrowed her
sisters steam cleaner and is fixing to
do our bedroom,  but first she has to
vacuum it.  I asked her if she needed
my help and she said no,  I guess I’ll
continue with the journal 🙂  Benny
and Rocky are in the bedroom with
Judy watching her vacuum.  They’re
curious little boys LOL.  Although
Rocky tends to stay far from the
vacuum,  because the sound scares
him.  Benny on the other hand will
just follow her around hahaha.  The
same goes for when I am using the
snow blower,  but then it’s both of
the boys.  Rocky doesn’t seem to
be afraid of the snow blower a bit.
In fact they will both often get right
in my path wanting me to blow snow
on them LOL.  They are characters.
There’s not much to tell you this
week.  Judy and I have pretty much
just hung around the house,  but
then last night (Saturday),  Judy went
over to her sister’s house for craft
night.  Judy made a beautiful wreath.
A Halloween wreath to be more to
the point.  She said she was doing
it in purple and black and I thought
to myself,  that’s going to look more
black than anything,  but it actually
came out quite nice as she also added
some sparkling iridescence to it that
made the colors pop.  Judy’s very
creative.  I hope she does a few more
paintings soon.  I love her artwork 🙂
I wish I was that creative,  but all I
am is a poet,  photographer and a
drummer.  The only creativity in me
is found in my poetry LOL and I’m
hoping that my books begin selling
one day soon.  I’ve sold a small few,
but nothing substantial.  Hopefully
when I’m dead and gone,  they’ll
start selling enough to provide Judy
with a little bit of an income to help
her get by.  Whatever happens,  it’s
in God’s hands.  When we’re doing
the best we can,  worrying about the
future only causes ulcers and panic.
We all have our flaws and we may
never reach the level of want that we
are striving for,  but we will get what
we need if we don’t give up.  Too many
give up before they’ve even begun and
that only leaves you looking back with
regret wondering why you didn’t try.
Don’t cry about the past.  It changes
nothing.  Look ahead of you and do
the best you can today and the future
will be as it should be.  Maybe not
what you would want,  but the way
it should be.  God sends angels to
help us through our trials.  So many
will turn them away due to their ego.
Don’t let your ego to prevent an angel
from helping you.  Some angels might
be friends of yours or people that you
meet as ships sailing through.  Let
God help you.  Thank You God for
all of the many angels that you’ve
sent to help and guide me through
life.  Now I believe it’s time for me
to start reading back through all that
I’ve written here to see if I can find
a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new
poem.  So it’s away I go to that little
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE 🙂
I believe found a decent title just a
third of the way back in my rambling
and now after checking I see that it
has not been used as of yet,  so used
it shall be today :).  Here goes…

Look Ahead

Don’t be always
looking back
and seeing how
you got off track.
Look ahead
and see the path
the better way,
but not too fast.
Don’t let hurry
guide you through,
for sometimes
it hides the view.
Passing scenes
of beautiful finds
might be blurry
as hurry defines.
Don’t let baggage
of yesterdays
to hold you back
in saddened grays.
Look ahead
and see what’s there
within the chances
found in a prayer.

There you go.  I hope you liked the
poem.  Also I hope you enjoyed my
rambling.  Judy has finished with the
carpet in our bedroom at least for the
moment.  She plans on us doing it a
few times being it’s never been cleaned
other than vacuumed and it’s caught
a lot of the boys growing.  If ya don’t
know what I mean.  I mean teaching
the boys that they are to go outside
to pee LOL.  Rocky still has a little
bit of problem with it,  but Benny’s
no problem.  Anyways,  we’re going
to do the whole house before it’s all
said and done,  before we have to
return it to Judy’s twin sister Trudy 🙂
So,  that’s about it, other than what
I tell you every week and that is,  I
wrote some more poems and haiku 🙂
Yeppers,  10 more poems,  but this
time with 1  extra which happens to
be a Christmas poem that I wrote
yesterday while Judy was gone LOL.
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
hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too…
Now where can that ornery off switch
be hiding this week?  Well,  as I look
around the room I seem to notice a
bit of movement behind our coin
wrappers box.  LOL this time I see
that you were trying to be still but
ya just slipped off the other side
and were reaching for a nonexistent
handhold hehehe.  Better luck next
week.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzz.

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

Rocks That Sleep

So many people
just lie around
without trying
a sight or sound.
Actions are only
as blades of grass
that tell stories
of times that pass.
So many moments
will pass us by
if we just give up
and never try.
Rocks that sleep
are winds of time
when they’re seen
within the mind.
So many display
a distant hue
just like a rock
of thereunto.
Many are rocks
of disregard
watching waiting
within their yard.
They just watch
to weather about
never seen moving
in ways or out.
So many people
worry and weep
not doing nothing
just rocks that sleep.

Journey’s Road

Wheels become as
pens to write
throughout daytime
then to night.
A simple story
that times unleash
filled with wonder
seeking peace.
A journey’s road
begins its quest
north and south
and east and west.
A scenic memoir
words begin
as time encounters
where you’ve been.
We all journey
our own little way
from time to time
and day to day.
The roads of style
display their view
a book of pages
thereunto.
One day we might
discover scenes
passing ages
rushing streams.
Some might view
their life’s abode
as that of the
journey’s road.

Shadows Of Desire

Beach side memories
we find in the shadows
scented of the ocean
in timeless afterglows.
I can hear the waves
that are crashing ashore
telling of a story
of a time long before.
Moments I remember
are as essence of the sun
in shadows of desire
we’re truly having fun.
Walking taking pictures
of each sight that we see
as waves come crashing
on you and on me.
Mornings encompassed
of a seasonal request
as shadows of desire
that are truly of the best.
My wife and I look out
to the waves of time
and see their abundance
of a wondrous design.
Seeming as a magical
time that comes alive
bringing forth blessings
that help us to survive.
Life is as seconds
that many might forget
losing them in waves
of a moment’s sunset.
Time is but an ocean
with heartbeats afire
filled with the memories
of shadows of desire.

Sky Of Art

That of a painting,
but in the sky
is an artful scene
of heaven’s reply.
Telling a story
from here to there
with drops of white
and a little flair.
Smudges of time
with a dab of blue,
the sky of art
is a magical view.
It displays scenes
as marvelous sights
scented with life,
the days and nights.
That of a painting
a wondrous design
painted with life
to live in our mind.
Seeming iridescent
as the sky displays
clouds of white
and some of grays.
The minutes pass
as we’re looking on
seeing the artwork
from dawn to dawn.
Scenes of emotions
will always impart
found up above
in a sky of art.

Mirage Of Autumn

Reviewing photos
of distant sceneries
I can see autumn
in colorful leaves.
I can even smell it
with aromas so fine,
a mirage of autumn,
such a seasonal time.
With accents of life
in some magical ways,
a mirage of autumn
is a timely phase.
It comes and goes
as minutes tick on
bringing forth colors
that’ll soon be gone.
This is a moment
that many will seek
searching all around
for just but a peek.
The colorful hues
the leaves become
when changing colors
after summer’s sun.
The season awaits
the wintertime snow
and then for spring
to once again grow.
Yet now it’s possibly
a ghost of time
a mirage of autumn
for eyes to find.

Distant Hills

Looking in the distance
you might see a view
some distant hills rolling
beneath a sky of blue.
A time you’ll remember
as the minutes tick on
as the rolling continues
of hills thereupon.
You might then envision
yourself summers days
walking in the distance
on hills that you gaze.
You might even imagine
a meadow that’s revealed
that for a brief time
was so very concealed.
Yet your imagination
may discover other things
a field full of wonder
as rivers and springs.
Scented with the dewdrops
of a morning of style,
you might imagine
what a dream can compile.
Those distant hills might
come alive as you think
as you go to the waters
to get yourself a drink.
Yet this might be a dream
or just your imagination
as distant hills of time
become your destination.

Seaward Gaze

Standing and affixed
on the seaward sky
I find the sunshine
as a glimmering high.
It enlightens emotions
that live deep within
while looking seaward
watching waves begin.
The calmness of style
of a timeless scene
is a seaward gaze
and a watery dream.
My eyes stay affixed
on the bright sunlight
as waves come crashing
right there in my sight.
I can smell the ocean
as it wafts in the air
the scent of a journey
with a seascape flair.
In a seaward gaze
my mind’s hypnotized
as I stand watching
and waves are apprised.
It’s a magical moment
that came into phase
as I stood watching
my seaward gaze.

Jumbled Thoughts

We often find
a time and place
mixed emotions
needing faith.
Thoughts may be
a cloud’s array
jumbled scenes
from day to day.
Blessings counted
can help us see
the best in life
for you and me.
God is always
there with love
pouring down from
heaven above.
Life gets better
if we let go
of all the baggage
to and fro.
Allow your life
to set things free,
things not good
for you or me.
For as we struggle
to hold on tight
to baggage of life
that is not right,
we might become
so sad and lost
within the moments
jumbled thoughts.

Tracks May Curve

Now and then
our times may show
a where and when
in to and fro.
Turning churning
days desires
tracks may curve
with minutes fires.
We might find
a day or two
where tracks of life
are best to view,
but then they might
just go astray
as they curve
in every which way.
It’s then we must
discern our path
and slow it down,
not go too fast.
For tracks of life
might swing a right
and leave you there
in another sight.
For as the scenes
become your view
the tracks may curve
to enlighten you.
So when your life
is going smooth
tracks may curve to
change your groove.

Living In Pink

Among so many
a life might portray
pinkish processions
just a little bit gray.
They might appear
as a better view
while living in pink,
but maybe as blue.
So many will hide
the way that they feel
not showing truly
what all they conceal.
Living a liars world
that’ll surely unfold
living in pink ways
when they’re so cold.
Don’t let your ego
to hide what’s true
making ones think
what isn’t so you.
Allow your pride
to release your fear
and learn to display
what may not appear.
A flower might seem
as a beautiful style
hiding the ugly
behind a little smile.
Learn to let go
of a egotistic way,
for living in pink
might end up so gray.

Christmas Days

With summer’s heat
and autumn’s drive
the scent of Christmas
comes alive.
It starts as an echo
that I endear
songs about Christmas
of year after year.
Remembering scenes
as snow of white
those Christmas days
such a wonderful sight.
Songs on the radio
playing Jingle Bells
and Silent Night
with a story to tell.
It’s the sweetest sound
for hearts to find
on a troubled day
to ease the mind.
Christmas gives hope
for a peaceful life
found in a snowflake
with lesser of strife.
So when I envision
that season of hope
my mind takes a trip
on a Christmas slope.
Summer might be
of the seasonal phase,
but joy’s still found
in Christmas days.

Haiku
for Sept 15 2018

With life comes moments
that we might not remember
as the way they were.

Looking for new ways
amidst our yesterdays thoughts
might turn out insane.

Without our struggles
we would not learn very much,
for trials teach more.

So many flowers
show but only a season
and then fade away.

The truth of passion
is often viewed as desires
that are only lies.

Windows to the mind
can become clouded with time
and hide what that’s true.

Living as blades of grass
you might forget the mower
that will cut you down.

Beyond the starlight
holds a place that becomes dreams
in the dark of night.

Focusing on pain
can create a troubled life
when it is peaceful.

Footprints on a beach
can be pathways to the sea
that came to explore.

Trading your lifestyle
for one that you do not know
can lead to trouble.

Some stop signs of life
are often hidden from us
until we get there.

Passing as a breeze
some moments might seem stormy
until they have passed.

A sprout of flowers
will not blossom its beauty
unless it’s watered.

Meaningless chatter
brings no view of perspective,
so say what you mean.

Losing ones pathway
does not mean that they are lost,
but just turned around.

The doorknobs we turn
can often become nightmares,
but also as dreams.

Tripping over holes
that we ourselves created
is considered fact.

Eyes are a turnstile
that look and then look again
at what that is gone.

Reacting to pain
is what many misconceive,
for they do not know.

A summertime field
displays signs of the changes
that autumn reveals.

Spirits of loved ones
might become as our angels
that watch over us.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been cooling down with each passing
day and I love it.  I’m planning on having
a little cook out today,  making Judy and
I hamburgers and hot dogs.  We brought
in all of our flowers due to this morning
and next morning being in the mid to low
30’s.  Judy bought some shelves so that
we could put the plants in the spare room
in front of the window so they can get a
little sunlight.  They’ll at least get some
morning sunshine.  It’s better than none
or leaving them out to freeze 🙂  Right
now at 1:30 PM it’s 60 degrees.  That’s
the high for today.  Of course you must
know that I mean Fahrenheit hehehe 🙂
Yep,  the weather is a whole lot different
than down Texas ways.  Judy is in the
kitchen right now trying to unclog the
sink.  Pouring unclog stuff it.  I can’t
remember the name of it.  I went in to
check on her a bit ago and it looks like
the stuff worked.  I’ll fix us breakfast
when she’s done washing dishes.  We
take turns doing chores around here.
That’s the way it should be when both
are retired LOL.  Of course there are
times that one or both of us are not
up to par and the other has to try to
do what we can.  That’s life and that
is love.  My daughter Jamye sent me
a message the other day.  She wants
to come up for Christmas,  but she’s
at the moment struggling to find the
finances to do so.  I hope she is able.
Judy and I would help out if we were
able,  but we are strapped for cash as
is.  Jamye said she needs to come up
with 700 dollars for the trip.  All we
can do is pray.  It would be great to
see her again and spend Christmas
with her.  I’m sad though that her
daughter (our granddaughter) will
be with her daddy (Jamye’s ex) for
Christmas.  Anyways,  I hope Jamye
can make it up.  Now,  next topic 🙂
I fixed Judy and I Eggos and sausage
for brunch.  She just asked me  if I
would carry the lawnmower outside
so she could mow a bit.  I put the
battery in it as well as the weed eater
and carried them both outside.  I
told her I would come out and help
when  I’m done with this.  We love
our new lawnmower.  It mows and
mulches and all in one shot without
a bag to mess with.  It came with a
bag attachment,  but we prefer the
other attachment that I bought that
pushes the mower grass down to be
mulched to where you can just keep
on mowing.  We’re set for summer
and winter as we also have our snow
blower and snow shovel that operate
using the same 40 volt ION battery.
We’ve got 2 batteries and 2 chargers,
so we’re good to go.  Back when we
first moved up here,  Judy was still
working and I was having to get up
at 4 AM during the winter months
and shovel snow from the car and
make a path.  On top of that it was
often below zero LOL.  Now with
our battery powered snow blower
and snow shovel,  it wouldn’t be that
bad.  No matter,  now with us both
retired,  I just go and blow the snow
when we need to go some where 🙂
like the store or to the doctor,  but
I don’t dare let it sit for too long,
or the snow with become packed
with a hard outer shell making it
difficult to blow.  Oh well,  if that
happens,  our battery powered snow
shovel digs right through it hehehe.
Anyways,  I just thought you would
like to know how we survive up here.
Judy’s behind me relaxing drinking
some coffee.  Both of the boys are
lying in their doggy beds between
Judy and I.  Tomorrow I’m going
to have my Shingles vaccination.
It should lessen the chances of me
getting them again.  Judy got her
a prescription from her doctor to
get the vaccination and she might
do that sometime this week as well.
She might get it the same time that
I do at the pharmacist.  No matter,
she’ll get it done.  She saw what
kind of pain I went through and
she decided she didn’t want to go
through that LOL.  At first she had
thought I was having an aneurysm.
Thank God it wasn’t 🙂  So,  what
else is there to tell ya?   Oh yea,
Judy went to the Dentist Wednesday
after a nurse had told her that her
molars were in bad shape and they
were the cause of the swelling and
pain on the left side of her face,
but the dentist said that one of her
teeth had a rough place on it that
caused a canker soar and he just
ground off the rough spot.  He said
though that part of her problem
could be that she has a impacted
wisdom tooth and if the swelling
doesn’t cease,  she may have to
have it cut out.  But it seems that
with him grinding that one tooth
it did the trick.  Judy’s not hurting
anymore and the canker sore is no
more.  So,  it looks like God is still
looking out for us.  Thank You
God for all that You do for us and
all that You will do.  We are most
surely blessed.  Now to begin my
search back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a
good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new
poem.  So it’s away I go that little
place of my recollection  that I
always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I may have found
a decent title just a few lines back
and now after checking,  I see that
I’ve not used that formation of
the word before,  so here goes…

Grinding

Life’s a pattern
many view
grinding gears to
thereunto,
Like a doorway
time might be
like a grinding
a sight to see.
Many worries
might portray
grinding finding
a dismal day.
With a heartbreak
time moves on
grinding lessons
short and long.
Some might be
but memories
grinding finding
raging seas,
but some memories
might become
grinding scenes
to a brighter sun.

I hope you liked the poem and maybe
even my rambling.  I’m gonna try and
finish this as quick I am able so I can
go out and help Judy.  She just now
went out to start mowing 🙂  I think the
boys went outside with her.  They’re
OK.  Our lawnmower doesn’t throw
any grass.   Yep,  I hear the mower 🙂
I guess that’s about all there is to tell
ya except for what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some poems and
haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,  no extras
and no Christmas related once again.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you
can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like.  Now I do believe it’s time
for me to begin my search for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a safe and blissful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. OK,
so where is that ornery off switch
trying to hide this time?  Hmmmm,
LOL,  my little Animal figurine has
moved a tad from where it has been
for a long while and the more I look
at it,  I see that it has begun moving.
Yep,  ya still can’t remain still can ya,
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

As A Stream

Timeless waters
can unfold
showing journeys
young and old.
As a stream
that pours desires
hopeful gives
what never tires.
Like a river
streams may go
showing passage
in their flow.
Life is weathered
over time
some may slip
with fall to find.
As perception
is made clear
we might see
our yesteryear.
Then by sight
we’ll understand
how a stream can
help us stand.
For with struggles
streams provide
we grow stronger
through the ride.
Flourishing ways
to become seen
living lifestyles
as a stream.

The Dragonfly

Spring to summer
as colors bloom
the dragonfly
seeks to attune.
It flutters here
and flutters there
as it displays
wondrous flair.
Displaying talents
of fluttering style
showing presence
its little smile.
Often its pathway
is found to be
the smallest sight
for ones to see.
Being well hidden
amongst a leaf,
but not for long,
for staying is brief.
Spring to summer
it flutters away,
but into autumn
continues to play.
Yet as the coldness
of winter appears
the dragonfly seeks
time it endears.
Seeking when winter
bids its goodbye,
this is the life
of the dragonfly.

A Moment Remembered

Memories awaken
in pictures that I view
seasons of a portal
that once was anew.
Yet as flashing minutes
the time disappeared
leaving in a turnstile
what I so endeared.
A moment then of love
that lives in my heart
a time so wonderful,
a magical work of art.
A moment remembered
as seasons passed by
leaving me in sadness
that makes me to cry.
We all may encompass
that similar feeling
time within a threshold
that’s not so appealing.
We need to let them go
but hold to the thoughts
that love did provide
which needs not be lost.
A moment remembered
can help you one day
recalling the good times
that were not so gray.

Beauty In Disguise

Clouds may form
within your view
and turn to orange
a wondrous hue,
but yet the skies
might hold a place
a time to find
a warm embrace.
It may be hidden
for another scene
within the beauty
just like a dream.
For now you see
but only orange
a time and place
to be reborn.
As sky gives life
within a view
it hides in orange
of a sky of blue.
We may perceive
a scented style
pouring flavors
times compile.
A sky of color
might proclaim
the time has come
for pouring rain.
But yet the sight
up in the skies
might be beauty
in disguise.

Stones May Form

Some rocks might be
of a smaller size
of which we kick
when not so wise,
A pebble that’s found
might seem so small
compared to life
that others appall,
but then that rock
might be so stout
it hurts when kicked
to make you shout.
For as it’s compared
to all that’s around
it might look small,
but then astound.
So don’t allow times
that stones may form
to become the hate
an eventful storm.
Find the meanings
within the sight
that may look wrong,
but then be right.
The sights you see
that cause you pain,
might be lessons
and not so insane.
So in midst of life
with a smaller view
stones may form
to enlighten you.

Autumn’s Colors

Driving through time
on an old country road
presents then a style
of a timeless abode.
It seems to go onwards
as miles gather way
with autumn’s colors
of a glorious day.
Scented with pleasures
that eyesight perceives
the colors of beauty
within autumn’s leaves.
They create textures
combined with a sight
that displays moments
that shine in sunlight.
This is just a morsel
of falls tasty treat
seeming so heavenly
with more to accrete.
So many memories
a moment bestows
become our reflections
as found in photos.
Life begins counting
and arranging displays
for ones to uncover
in so many ways
Seen as our heartbeats
times like no others
is what I remember of
autumn’s colors.

Within A Crowd

Lost in perspective
we might not fit in,
but yet look the same
beginning to end.
Time may encompass
our visual sight
with ones not knowing
what’s wrong or right.
The years might pass
leaving many to think
they know you surely,
but it’s just but a wink.
Thinking you’re the same
as times long ago
and not ever realizing
it was all just a show.
We might be flowers
of a journey’s mind
seen for a moment
as just but a rhyme.
Echoing the likenesses
of each you were with,
but it’s only phases
that time did desist.
We are uniqueness
that many never know,
due to their vision
being a little too slow.
Not catching on to
what all you’re endowed
and only seeing flowers
found within a crowd.

Behind Our View

Beach side sands
of an ocean shore
gives many things
ones can explore.
God given days
that times prevail
can become faint
with a slight detail.
So many blessings
of evenings embrace
become as a portion
of life’s smiling face.
An ocean of mind
in scenes by the way
can change its view
from night to day.
When looking ahead
you might not see
the ocean behind
that others perceive.
A gray sky above
may surely proclaim
the existence of God
and His holy name.
Sandcastles built
in this sandy shore
might be right near
a ship and an oar.
It might be a dream
of a sea of blue
that we reminisce
on behind our view.

Tomorrows Days

Fields of emotion
become such a sight
hills in the distance
amidst the daylight.
Life can become
a page from a book
awaiting our eyes
to have a quick look.
Time might pass by
and become shadows
in tomorrows days
the way that it flows.
Look for the sights
that lifetimes display
scented with beauty
in a wondrous array.
For when with hurry
times pass us by
and then tomorrows
may find us to cry.
Sorrow may fill us
as we notice things
the tomorrows of life
and magical scenes.
Then we are wishing
a return for a chance
in yesterdays life
for tomorrow’s glance.
For the hills we see
in wonderful ways
can be the joy
in tomorrows days.

Times Proclaim

The dusty miles
in scenes we see
become the past
in our history.
We might view
the days ahead
as times we find
so much to dread.
With a dusty mile
that times proclaim
which journeys on
with given name,
it might be called
a scenic quest
what all we found
in more or less,
but then it might
be sad to view
all that’s found
in things we do.
Yet the moments
can become
the future seen
of a brighter sun.
Gleaming signs
of brand new days
losing sight
of olden ways.
Allowing wheels
to just roll on
and leave the worst
as then and gone.
For as the times
begin their life
they might end
the passing strife.
Focusing on
a picture frame
might show smiles
that times proclaim.

Haiku
for Sept 7,  2018

Ticking of seconds
is often all we’re hearing
as the minutes pass.

Within illusions
you might discover a path
that can become real.

Changes in people
are often not clearly seen
until it’s to late.

The life of a tree
is shown by many struggles
displayed in its limbs.

Looking to the sky
you might still not see what’s there
due to narrow sight.

Searching within time
you might discover the flaws
that hurry unleashed.

Lost in confusion
ones will often continue
hoping to get out.

Looking down a hole
you might see your reflection
looking back in time.

Doorways to lifetimes
often hold many pathways
for us to travel.

When remembering
our thoughts might be clouded
by essence of time.

A rose of today
might be just a memory
in your tomorrows.

Nothing stays the same,
for as a cloud builds it views,
so do we each one.

The lessons of rocks
are as boulders that have chipped
to become many.

Living in the past
could present many problems
such as existing.

Phases of the moon
are as life cycles we see
that embellish us.

Without our struggles
we would be without lessons
to make us wiser.

Reading dictionaries
will only teach you meanings
and not how they feel.

The sun in summer
brings forth many perceptions
that are good and bad.

Windows of our minds
can become very clouded
as life moves along.

Cherishing items
such as money, cars and stuff
can corrupt your life.

The sight of a star
that so many wish upon
might be a planet.

Focusing on love
and how to make ones love you,
might drive you crazy.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well,  it looks as though summer will soon
be over with up this way.  It’s cooling down
with each passing day.  Although it still has
a little ways to go before winter sets in and
there are many that are hating the thought
of winter,  but not me LOL.  I can’t wait
till I see the first snowflakes fall from the
sky.  To me it’s like magic as it begins its
white cascade down from the sky.  Some
think I’m weird,  but I couldn’t care less 🙂
I love snow and being that we have our
battery powered snow blower and snow
shovel,  it’s not as bad on my back when
clearing it as it was using a regular old
manual snow shovel LOL.  Yeppers I’m
ready for summer to come to an end 🙂
Although I still need to put a bit more
on our heating oil tab before it gets here,
so I guess I’m not quite ready financially
for winter,  but I will be LOL.  We’ve
still got about a 4th of a tank of heating
oil from last winter.  Hmm so,  next topic.
Well,  we didn’t do much this week,  but
Friday was my birthday and we went out
to eat at the Governors Restaurant in
Presque Isle.  It was a good day.  We
ended up bringing home half of our food
to finish off later that day.  We bought
a chocolate pie also at the restaurant to
have for dessert late Friday evening and
it was and is still good hehehe being we
have only eaten half of the pie.  Oooh
dessert tonight and tomorrow.  Not
much else has gone on around here.
Judy’s fixing to head over for a BBQ
at her sister’s house.  I’m staying home.
I really don’t care about being around
a lot of people that I don’t know and
there will be a lot of them,  plus Judy
usually ends up hanging out with her
sisters anyways and I end up being
just there taking pictures.  So,  I think
it’s best for me to stay home.  Judy
always wants to stay for a long time
anyways and I do not enjoy staying
for 5 or 6 hours or more as the case
is often.  She might not be home till
around midnight LOL.  So,  it’s me
and the boys and they’re lying in the
floor beside and behind me.  We had
a heck of time getting Rocky to come
in being he wanted to go for a ride,
but I went and got a squeaky toy
and squeaked it a couple of times
and he came running hahaha.  He
loves the squeaky toys.  LOL life in
the fast lane.  I wish I had some of
my family up here to visit,  but it is
what it is.  I just now called VIP to
see how much an oil and spark plug
change would cost.  I’m gonna get
that done hopefully this week.  I
know the spark plugs have gotta be
getting worn after 9 years hehehe.
If it cost too much,  I’ll get 1 done
and then the other next month,  but
hopefully it won’t cost too much.
So,  what else has gone on here at
The Pearce’s Place?  Well,  to be
honest,  it’s quite boring,  especially
today,  but that’s OK.  I’ll do a
little poetry writing today to put
in pictures 🙂  It doesn’t look like
VIP is going to call me back today,
but they are opened till 6:30 PM.
If they don’t then I’ll get a hold
of them next week sometime.  It’ll
get done.  I just called them again
and he said he’s been busy with
customers,  but he’ll get on it 🙂
and call me back with the price.
I reckon that’s about all from this
part of the world.  God still has
His mighty hands protecting us as
much as He sees necessary,  being
we all need to face reality as there
are many things we must endure
to give us growth.  If we were not
to of ever suffered,  then we would
of never grown.  I guess it’s time
for me to begin my little journey
back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find a word or
phrase that I can use for the title
for today’s brand new poem.  So,
it’s away I go,  to that place of
my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE 🙂
I think I may of found a decent
title just a few lines back and now
after checking I see that it hasn’t
been used yet,  so used it shall be.
Here goes…

Necessary

The things we do
and things we see
might be lessons
for you and me.
We might fall flat
onto our faces
with the moments
time embraces.
There are lessons
to be displayed
in the mistakes
of which we made.
Yet there are times
that God will send
protection from
a gruesome end.
But He knows that
you must find
lessons from some
points in time.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even my rambling 🙂
I know,  I do tend to ramble,  don’t I,
but if I didn’t you wouldn’t have all of
my gobbledygook to read and keep you
entertained LOL.  Though I do believe
that there is nothing more to tell you
other than what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,  but
no extras or Christmas related.  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 reckon it’s time for me to begin
my search for that hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a
most wonderful weekend or what all
that’s left of it and a safe labor day
as well a truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  OK,  so where can that off
switch be trying to hide the time LOL?
I use the term trying loosely hehehe.
Hmm,  I think I see a bit of movement
behind my aspirin bottle.  Yep.  there
ya are once again.  It seems that you
would learn where is not a good place
to hide after being found there more
than a couple of times,  wouldn’t you?
After all of this time, you’d think you
would learn to stay still Hahahahaha.
I could even hear the bottle rattling 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Just Like Flowers

We’re often judged
by life visually
and not how we are,
but what they see.
Becoming set in
a judgmental soil
as ones continue
acting so royal.
We are connected
in life’s daily game
just like flowers.
that moments attain.
Look a bit deeper
and see beyond sight,
find how they are
in a clearer light,
Often long hair
or tattoos ones have
make ones to judge
and then walk on past.
Look for the person
and not for the flair
for just like flowers
we need ones to care.

Golden Field

Journeys of minutes,
journeys of miles
take on perspective
that can give a smile.
Sorted emotions
of a journey of mind
gives a golden field
a respectable time.
Scenes we remember
that time took away,
might be the difference
we wish for today.
A simple golden trail
in a heartbeat of life
could bring peaceful
to end your strife.
We all have mindsets
that many never see
for they are within us
and stay lock and key.
So unlock that doorway
and allow ones to know
the person within you
and how that you glow.
Though oh so many
might laugh real hard
at what all they see
with no disregard.
Yet still there are many
that give love to yield
as they get to know
your inner golden field.

Place Of Peace

Days of wonder
with scented scenes
bring in vision
so many things.
Places remembered
that now are gone
might come to life
as you look on.
They might be life
of another style
a scented aroma
a wonderful while.
A place of peace
in a simple scene
might be a barn
in grasses of green.
We might one day
find a lost place
as a timeless past
with a smiling face.
Look on beyond it
and open the door
find the connections
to so much more.
Sometimes our eyes
see only some views
scenes we believe
and not what’s true.
Allow the minutes
to give you release,
God given moments
in a place of peace.

Cattle Grazing

Traveling down roads
you might perceive
the sight of some cattle
that times interweave.
Grazing in the days
as they peacefully stand
eating and enjoying
the food of the land.
Then for a moment
you might find the day
watching interacting
as peaceful as hay.
Life can be blissful
if you’ll just let it be
and allow the sights
to be life’s chemistry.
Filled with the goodness
of love and true life
and not so corrupted
with hate and strife.
Watch as a moment
can become as love
sent down from heaven
as wings of a dove.
While cattle stand still
and graze in the grass
life begins a journey
of future and past.
Yes life can become
as a time so amazing
just from the sight of
a few cattle grazing.

Standing On The Dock

Some days we may
just trudge along
standing on the dock
just singing a song.
So many days though
we might not find
peaceful at heart
a moment in time.
Standing on the dock
of windswept days
can procure lifestyles
of withered ways.
Don’t allow time
to just pass you by
as geese in flight
in the true blue sky.
Let your mind soar
and find better sight,
such as an ocean
or a lighthouse light.
Look passed sadness,
don’t focus on pain.
Find all the blessings
that life can attain.
Some might be hidden
in a moment or style
that needs uncovered
to find you a smile.
Allow your emotions
to see life unlock
and display the beauty
standing on the dock.

Simple Visions

A passing breeze
can bring to mind
a special place
and point in time.
Children playing
mid December
simple visions
that I remember.
The snow of white
that time displays
of those blessings
wondrous ways.
My heart seeks
those times again
of simple visions
way back when.
Yes we all have
times recalled
simple visions
the age of auld.
Time continues
with its counting
adding details
life’s surmounting.
Through it all
we may remember
life and times of
sweet December.
They still live
in our memories
with simple visions
mindful seas.

Seabirds

Legends of seabirds
flapping in the breeze
brings forth the echoes
of summertime seas.
Yet they’re not fables,
but of then pure truth
a seabird of nature
that time gives to you.
It might be a moment
or a place you recall
found in your memories
of summer to fall.
It might be a blessing
so sweet and so pure
that one day glistened
with a wondrous allure.
I can now remember
a place and a time
that’s found in pictures
of scenes so divine.
The ocean’s waves roar
became as a dream,
a time my wife and I
recorded each scene.
The pictures and videos
that now are displayed
became as a story
for a moment to wade.
For I can still remember
the crashing of waves
joined by some seabirds
in the so distant days.

Life’s Survival

As summers pass
they leave a void
a time and place
you once enjoyed.
A walk on the beach
or riding a horse
turns into shadows
running their course.
Synched with days
that brought a smile
within life’s survival
that minutes compile.
A beach side scene
or a distant view
becomes as an echo
that lives within you.
Time turns to stories
that turn into pages
written in our minds
of so distant ages.
Just like a glimmer
that never goes out
our life’s survival
keeps running about.
Bringing into view
what minutes surmise
scented with life
we saw with our eyes.
For as time passes
with each arrival
our memories help
with life’s survival.

Different Colors

Having of wealth
and many things
makes none better
than guitar strings.
Strumming notes
to make your place
often gives only
a disheartened face.
The poor are people
the same as us
so don’t act better
in front of the bus.
Sometimes life
will throw us a foul
making some grimace
and others to growl.
The wealth of life
should not be cash,
but that of love
of every class.
We all have things
that no one knows
problems hidden
filled with woes.
Different lifestyles
different hues
walking each day
to win or lose.
So don’t be hateful
to all the others,
even if they are
different colors.

Flavors Of Style

Limbs of a journey
are better to view
when you are seeking
what that is true.
Not letting hopeful
to fill with despair
as time passes you
here unto there.
We are as flavors
that many will see
tasted by eyesight
a moment’s degree.
Though deceptions
might be of words
while many gossip
as busy little birds.
Sometimes scenes
we’re seen within
are just a moment
of remember when.
The past is portrayed
as an active view
that many think of
as now so true.
Don’t allow lies
to become your life
creating enemies
to fill you with strife.
Seek for the beauty
of life and a smile
found deep within us
as flavors of style.

Haiku
for Sept 1,  2018

Amidst a morning
you might surely discover
a new day to rise.

While in a doorway
we might perceive much better
within other doors.

The life of a breath
begins with ones breathing in
and then exhaling.

In search of true love
you might find a few liars,
but true love exists.

The essence of time
is found within the seconds
that many don’t count.

Looking up above
you might see a few rainbows
without any rain.

Challenges of life
are often within our eyes,
for we are able.

Right after the rain
the wait begins for sunshine
for roses to grow.

Yesterday is life
that we might not clearly see
until the time’s right.

As we find windows
into what we are wanting
our needs get confused.

Filling up a void
with our negativity
can still leave a void.

Chances for a rose
are the same as a tulip,
they both need sunshine.

Believing in truth
allows lies to intervene
if you’re not careful.

A page of our life
might of been dog-eared by you
and you never knew.

The breath of today
can become a stifled moment
that we may of caused.

Links to our lifestyles
are often found in others
that were watching us.

Change is indifferent
when it’s done for another
and not for yourself.

The sight of lightning
makes many wait for thunder
to complete its course.

Seen as a doormat
some will wipe their feet on you
thinking they’re better.

History of time
has many in confusion,
for no one is sure.

The links to a fence
are stronger when connected
than of lonely links.

Within a shadow
Satan shows what fears you most
which might be yourself.

What Else

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a fairly nice passed week.
The weather hasn’t been all that bad.
The temp has been staying in the 60’s
and 70’s,  but this week there might
be a couple of days in the low 80’s.
Thankfully that will soon change to
most days being in the 60’s and 70’s
as summer bids farewell.  Then the
temperatures will surely begin their
down hill fall to 50, 40, 30, 20 etc.
Then we will be seeing signs of the
first snowflakes of the season to fall
from the sky.  It’s so beautiful to
see as it decorates the landscapes 🙂
Yep,  I do love winter.  Though I
hate the price of heating our house
with heating oil,  but ya do what ya
gotta do.  Every place has drawbacks.
I would get tired of only seeing one
season or just mild changes and I’d
totally miss the snow.  My old body
cannot handle hot weather,  so this
is home.  I finally got my 8th book
published and it is in paperback
and Kindle Edition.  I had a heck
of a time getting it published LOL.
It seems Amazon was having a bad
day and they were messing up just
a tad hahaha.  Oh well,  it all got
done.  Anyways,  next topic.  Judy
had to go the doctor Thursday of
last week because the left side of
her mouth was hurting.  It seems
she has a few molars needing to
be pulled.  We’ve set her up for a
dentist appointment next month
early.  The doctor gave her some
meds to help to calm the infection.
My head is doing a lot better.  It
looks as though the shingles are
just about nullified.  The doctor
gave me some pills to help with
that and I have an appointment
next month to get the vaccination
for shingles to lessen the chance
of me getting them again,  but
I’m sure it won’t guaranty I wont
get them,  but at least it will make
it a lesser chance of getting them.
So what else is going on around
The Pearce’s Place?  Hmm,  well
the boys are doing well.  Since
we gave them a good shave,  they
have been more rambunctious
than ever LOL.  Even Benny’s
been playing like a pup again 🙂
LOL I just went to see where
they were,  being they weren’t in
here and I stuck my head around
the door to look in the kitchen
and Benny was standing there
with his little tail wagging madly.
Then Rocky poked his head in
from the porch and they both
came running LOL.  They were
on my heals all the way back to
the computer room hehehehe.
I gave them both a little treat 🙂
Now they’re lying in the floor
between Judy and I.  They’re
good boys 🙂 hehehe when they
wanna be.  We haven’t been
out and about much this week
due to finances,  but we might
have plans for my birthday.
Not sure what we will do,  but
we’ll do something.  I’ll turn 62
on the 31 of this month.  Yep,
getting older as time rolls on 🙂
I feel like I’m more like 91
turning 92 🙂  My old body has
had a few rushes in the aging
process if ya know what I mean.
So,  what else is there to tell you?
Well it looks as though God is
still watching over us as the days
and weeks pass us by.  There are
so many things that could of been
much worse,  but God intervened.
Thank You God for all that You
do and all that You will do as the
days pass us by.  Now I believe
it’s time for me to begin my little
search back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a
good word or phrase that I can
use for the title for today’s brand
new poem.  So it’s away I go to
that place of my recollection that
I always call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may of found a decent
title just a few lines back and now
after checking I see that it has not
been used as of yet,  so used it
shall be 🙂  Wish me luck LOL.

What Else

With every footstep
and with every word
we travel onwards
sometimes so absurd.
We leave many scenes
as a destroyed phase
and then we’ll often
seek time to replace.
Not looking forwards
but often looking back
we will so often
get a little off track.
So what else is seen then
as we walk to and fro.
Time begins teaching
what we need to know.
God intervenes then
with more to discern
giving us the pages
we’re needing to turn.
So don’t let the moments
to be dust on the shelf
with you just wondering
and saying what else.

There ya go.  I don’t know what else
I could write LOL.  So I hope you at
least enjoyed my rambling even if you
didn’t like the poem hehehe.  Judy’s
behind me trying get the cheap HP
book to working right.  She’s deleting
a lot of stuff that is not needed.  LOL
the book only had 12 meg free.  She
is hoping to get all of the unneeded
stuff uninstalled.  Then if she is able
she wants to give it to her brother
that is in a nursing home so he can
maybe get on the internet and find
Facebook.  But actually we’re just
hoping he can just entertain himself,
so he’s not just lying in bed.  He’s
lost both of his legs due to diabetes
and gangrene.  His health is getting
worse.  Please keep him in your
prayers.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to tell you what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
I wrote 10 more poems, but none
are Christmas related,  I’m sorry.
I also wrote 22 more 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 do
believe it is time for me to begin
my search for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish
you all a most joyous weekend
or what’s left of it and a truly
blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now
where is that ornery off switch
hiding or better yet trying to hide
this time?  Hmm,  looking high
and low,  right and left hehehe.
LOL I had no need to look in
all of those places because that
numskull is hiding right in front
of me right behind the lil statute
that our old neighbors gave me
that says I Think You’re Nice 🙂
I see ya you little varmint.  You
keep peeking out to see if I can
see you and that gives you away.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzz.

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

Waters Calm

Wading in waters
time seems so still
as what surrounds me
is a spinning wheel.
Life in its essence
is a page that’s found
scented with survival
as I look around.
Seeking for pleasure
of a gentle breeze
I walk with friends
in shallow seas.
Yet as a doorway
becomes my glance
the then waters calm
are songs to dance.
Friendship is found
in the waters of time
so often unnoticed
as an untimely mime.
You might see one
standing by your side
a friend to transcend
the moments applied.
Life is a pattern
that you need to be
a friend to a friend
in life’s changing sea.
For as the days pass
our life continues on
as true friends help us
to find waters calm.

Reflections Of Time

Looking through waters,
time frames we’ve seen
we might see reflections,
nightmares and dreams.
Scenes come to life
as the waters of time
displaying our memories
that live in our mind.
Life has many echoes
that we might try to hide
sometimes as a portion
of our life’s bumpy ride.
The scenes that time shows
may not be what we want
and be but only then
the bad times to haunt.
The reflections of time
can become as a show
displaying all the lessons
to help you to grow.
Change can be a journey
to become something good
as a moment in time
in blessings neighborhood.
The turning of pages
in the book of true style
can then deliver you
a heart warming smile.
It might seem as candy
as a time so divine
a page within a page
of reflections of time.

Distant Views

Seen in the distance
might be a phase,
time that has passed
into distant days.
A tractor might sit
just awaiting its time
or the clouds might sit
with beauty divine.
It could be a picture
or just memories
as those distant views
become deep seas.
You might remember
a hot summer’s day
that you went playing
or swimming away.
You might then recall
the best of the past
times walking gently
through the tall grass.
You might even find
a time you recall
bright colored leaves
displaying in fall.
Those distant views
that life gave free
may have come to life
for a moment to see.
Becoming an essence
of times daily news
found in a field
of your distant views.

Life In The Pink

Through our struggles
some days might seem
that of an ocean
or a rushing stream.
The waters envisioned
might become wild,
yet with a flower
can maybe turn mild.
The flower of life
as an ocean breeze
scented with textures
of life found at ease.
Yes life in the pink
can live within you
and when then in need
become as your view.
Seek for the treasures
of life in your mind
filled with memories
of a great point in time.
Let loose your sadness,
the way that you think
as you find a smile
with life in the pink.

Found At Peace

Travels of eyesight
dusk unto dawn
take us on journeys
our minds can live on.
Walking in a pasture
on a distant day
or riding a horse
times swish and sway.
The grass in a field
becomes as pure gold
as a time remembered
from young unto old.
Our eyesight displays
what that’s no more
and shows of the new
of which to explore.
Then found as peace
is a seasonal gain
when we look true
at the good to attain.
Often it’s hidden
within a field
sights that could be
the best to yield.
Allow your sight
to see a better day
while not only seeing
the sadness and gray.
Look for the beauty
and let sadness cease,
then for a moment
be found at peace.

The Small Things

The worries we have
might be so small,
but we’ve made them
to stand so tall.
The small problems
can become large
if we allow them
to daily take charge.
Time is a window
so many look through
seeking for dreams
to come into view.
We can change things
by the way we react
learning our lessons
and getting on track.
So many small things
can become great
if we always choose
to procrastinate.
Allow the beauty
that you never found
to become your sight,
in sky and ground.
Look now and see
all the wonderful scenes
found in the moments
within the small things.

Painted Flower

Many pictures
come in view
bringing scent
to me and you.
Some may seem
a little faint
as their only
painters paint,
but those flowers
still can be
the best in life
and best to see.
A painted flower
might display
the essence of
a wondrous day.

Winter’s Reflection

Winter recedes
to allow living spring,
but it’s remembered
as song that we sing.
Winter’s reflection
is that of a smile
throwing snow balls
as snowflakes compile.
Life is recorded
as a seasonal hue
planted in our minds
such a wonderful view.
God filled moments
on a heavenly quest
as winter’s reflection
displays the very best.
Blessings as winter
paints homes with snow
making them beautiful
a seasonal glow.
Some may not like it
as wintertime comes,
but then there are days
they’re out having fun.
Riding snowmobiles
through snowy trails
and building snowmen
with many details.
So take a breath now
and see the perfection
found in a moment of
winter’s reflection.

Within A Window

Within a moment
time is displaying
minutes and hours
many are playing.
Yet many times
in a window view
you might see life
of a different hue.
It might be a tree
or a solar sight
rocking in the day
and still at night.
You might even see
a fluffy design
clouds floating by
to live in your mind.
Time begins ticking
as life moves along
within a window
of dusk unto dawn.
Allow you heart
to find displayed
a moment of life
to not degrade.
Look at the sights
and find the style
the beauty of time
to give you a smile.
Find for a moment
a time with a glow
that comes alive
within a window.

Trails

A little walk
in distant days
displayed trails
just like a maze.
Winding through
to here and there
to then display
a breath of air.
Beauties of life
as it’s explored
the place I found
that I adored.
You might find
somewhere to go
with trails of time
in living flow.
You might find
your heart’s desire
in trails of life
in their entire.
Allow your feet
or mind to sail
to find you life
in wondrous trails.

Haiku
Aug 25,  2018

Beyond what we think
are things we might not believe
that exist in life.

Walking many trails
you might discover lifestyles
that bewilder you.

A flower’s own lifetime
begins and ends with seasons
of winter and spring.

Looking for a cloud
that is formed like memories
you might find some dreams.

Shadows of a tree
might seem so very creepy,
but they’re only limbs.

The moon glows brightly
as the sun’s own reflection
that lives in the night.

Lifestyles of a rose
are that of a connection
to the bumble bees.

Without some sunshine
many plants would wither away
leaving only death.

Tomorrows forecast
is an estimated guess
so don’t hold your breath.

Living in a dream,
you might wake up to changes
such as a nightmare.

Making like a weed
you can become one that’s plucked
because you’re trouble.

Need is confusion
as our wants become our needs
of which we don’t need.

The snow of winter
is a Christmas memory
that brings me a smile.

Sharing ones burdens
you can often create strength
stronger than burdens.

Without any rain
some plants have no chance to live,
but others will thrive.

Time in a bubble
is protected  from minutes,
but bubbles will bust.

Various changes
can become as good and bad,
for some are gambles.

Finding shooting stars
in the skylight late at night
some might not be stars.

A page within time
might hold many mysteries
we might one day see.

As God opens doors
He gives way for some chances
to go or stay put.

We are but a time
that so many might perceive
as never changing.

As we walk forwards
the past becomes memories
that we might regret.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well,  this week has been a rather achy
one as I have still had a bit of pain in
my head due to the Shingles virus that
took home upon my head.  The doctor
prescribed me some meds to help ease
the pain and I am scheduled to get a
Shingles vaccination next month.  From
what Judy and I have found,  it won’t
totally prevent me from having a flare
up,  but it will lessen the chances being
that mine was the type of flare up that
had no blisters.  So,  I didn’t write any
last week,  but I surely made up for
it yesterday LOL.  OK so,  you’ll hear
more about that in the second half of
this article.  Judy and I took a drive
down to Bangor Thursday to visit with
her brother that is in a nursing home
down there.  He’s not doing very well.
Our little boy/dog Rocky apparently
was not feeling well.  He had a few
accidents there and back,  but he’s
doing much better now.  Thankfully
we have a pet seat guard on the back
seat which prevents anything from
getting on the seat.  We just stopped
at the rest area and on the side of the
road and cleaned it up and drove on.
Oh yea,  I don’t remember if I told
you this last week,  but we’ve lost
our neighbors with the kids.  They
had to move being they could not
pay the rent due to him not working.
I miss those little kids.  They did at
times get on my nerves though when
they’d come ringing the doorbell at
all hours to just say high or when
I went out side just to get a breath
of air,  they’d see me and come just
a running.  But yet,  I did so enjoy
playing with them and watching
them play.  I took tons of pictures
of them playing in the snow and
having snowball fights and I also
took a few videos with one of them
little kids coming at me with huge
snowballs trying to throw them at
me LOL.  Yep,  I already miss the
kids.  I hope they come back to
visit once in a while.  Anyways 🙂
next topic.  The county road crew
have been working hard doing a
lot of work on our roads.  They’ve
really resurfaced the roads.  Yep,
and the road in front of our house
is about an inch higher now LOL.
They also fixed a little inclining
ramp from our driveway so that
we would have no trouble coming
and going.  They’ve been working
steadily.  Judy said they do this
every 10 years and we moved up
here over 10 and a half years ago.
So I guess it’s time for resurfacing.
They work on the roads every year,
but only do minor repairs unless
more is needed.  LOL I wish they
would make their way down our
driveway.  Talk about a bumpy
ride hahaha.  Almost makes my
body feel like it’s in a paint shaker
LOL.  There’s not been much else
happening around here.  The boys
are still the boys as they run and
play all throughout the house.
Since we shaved their hair off they
have both become more active 🙂
We’ve decided to give them a good
shaving every month,  but maybe
not during the winter months LOL.
Although we do have doggy clothes
to put on them to keep them warm.
But then they only go outside to
potty and come right back inside.
OK maybe not the same for Benny,
being he loves the snow and will
often be seen bouncing around in
it and climbing snow mounds to
look around.  Rocky will play a
little,  but he’s not as much of a
fan of the snow as Benny 🙂 LOL.
Winter’s not too far away 🙂 and
I can’t wait.  I love winter and all
of the snow.  I know,  you might
think I’m weird,  but I couldn’t
care less what you think LOL 🙂
The only thing that keeps me in
a high stress is worrying about
having heating oil which is the
main reason I’ve begun putting
100 dollars on our tab at the oil
company every month so to make
sure we can stay warm.  So when
we need it,  I won’t have to deplete
my bank account to buy us some
heating oil.  Anyways,  that’s all
that I have for ya.  Yep,  God’s
been good to us.  We can feel His
presence all around us.  Thank
You God for continuing to give
us what we need and or help us
to find the ways to get what we
need.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to begin my search through
all that I have written here to see
if I can find me a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title
for today’s new poem.  So it’s off
I go,  to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE and
it looks as though I did not have
to look far.  Just a few lines back
I saw a word that might work well
for the title today.  So now to see
if I can do anything with it LOL.
Here goes…

Continuing

Roadways to journeys
time lingers on
continuing pathways
of right and to wrong.
We often will continue
what we know isn’t right
as we seek tomorrow
as the dark of the night.
Finding only sadness
and finding only pain
we’ll often just continue
what we always complain.
Yet there are many
that choose to turn away
and leave all those journeys
of a Hell bend array.
It’s then that the lessons
will become as our growth
as we travel rivers
in our life changing boat.
Learn from your journeys
what’s not meant to do
while you’re continuing
to learn something new.

There ya go.  I hope you liked and
maybe even understood the poem.
I also hope you enjoyed all of my
rambling.  I’m a rambling man 🙂
So,  I don’t believe I forgot to tell
you anything and if I did,  I guess
I’ll tell ya next week LOL.  Both
of the boys are lying in the floor
between Judy and I.  Right now
it’s 69 F degrees at 7:30 PM.  Not
too bad huh.  Yep, it’s already
beginning to cool down.  Tonight
it’s supposed to get down to 48 🙂
OH yea,  Judy went to craft night
Saturday night and she made an
awesome birdhouse.  I’ll put a
picture of it in my stationery so
that the ones of you that are in
fact receiving this in stationery
style will be able to see it.  So,
I reckon that’s it.  Now to tell
you what I tell you every week
and that is I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers I
wrote 10 more poems,  but no
Christmas poems and I once
again wrote 22 haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there 🙂
Yep,  I wrote all of the poems
and haiku yesterday (Saturday).
I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.
Now to begin my little search
for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you all
a joyful weekend,  what’s left
of it and a truly blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now,  to
find that ornery off switch LOL.
Hmm,  where can it be hiding
this time?  Hahahahahahahaha,
I see ya you blockhead LOL.
Hiding in one of your old places
isn’t that great when it proved
to be not so great back then
either LOL.  My camera hasn’t
grown any larger,  so if you’re
gonna hide behind it,  make
sure that you are actually behind
it instead of trying to take a lil
selfie 🙂  Try harder next time
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzz.

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

Green Butterfly

Found in a story
a moment to tell
life comes alive
as a ringing bell.
Things we miss
as we look away
to the sky above
from day to day.
Beneath our feet
we might not see
a green butterfly
in a grassy sea.
It might be still
so to not be seen
amidst the grasses
of shades of green.
Look even closer
you might perceive
more of nature
that God did weave.
Times perspective
is a moment’s sight
often as counted
day unto night.
So take a breather
and look around,
see all the beauty
the sky and ground.
Don’t let the minutes
to pass you by
and not see life as
the green butterfly.

Dreaming Memories

Moments pass
as time portrays
those memories
of distant days.
Dreams of times
that now are past
become the light
with shadows cast.
We all have days
that were divine
living breathing
inside our mind.
Those sweet times
we’ll never forget
as they come alive
much better yet.
Within our dreams
they seem so real
as colors binding
times to feel.
But yet they’re just
a mere memory
that comes to life
in you and me.
Remembered times
that we reminisce
found as a dewdrop
or a scented kiss.
They’re as the days
of morning’s breeze
we find when we’re
dreaming memories.

Beauty To Behold

In sight of time
a day will come
as life moves on
each setting sun.
A flower blooms
then goes to sleep
as time will pass
from week to week.
We might not see
the seconds gaze
that ones behold
in heartfelt ways.
Now might seem
as just a sight
a timeless frame
from day to night,
but yet each scene
that comes in view
might have a sight
for me and you.
Although we may
not understand
the sights we see
in sky and land.
The views are still
the scenes to see
that may be peace
so scenically.
A moment’s time
that might unfold
to give to us
beauty to behold.

Magical Places

With but a breath
a sight is born
some think illusion
and others forlorn.
Yet many places
have within them
magical powers
for time to begin.
Waters that ripple
in a passing lake
or lands so alluring
we have to partake.
The magic exists
maybe clearly to see
or maybe hidden
in moments debris.
Yet many seconds
will come and go
displaying magic
as waters that flow.
It might be found
as just but a time
a seasonal sight
that did so unwind.
The magic lives on
as a perfect desire
found for a moment
as a raging fire.
Look deep inside
as a heartbeat races
and find the beauty
in magical places.

A Journey’s Mind

Roads we’ve driven
there and back
might of put us
a little off track.
A journey’s mind
begins its quest
with so many times
and so many test.
We might struggle
with our directions
finding journeys
with some deceptions.
Each path we cross
is a chance to see
the better or worse
within you and me.
A journey’s mind
is often confused
afraid of being left
broken and bruised.
Sometimes the road
is a choice to take
to learn all you can
through each mistake.

Sticks And Twigs

Living as choices
changing with times
we’re often seeing
confusion in rhymes.
When looking down
at life in the grass
you might perceive
a shadow you cast.
As sticks and twigs
display their view
you might not see
what’s ahead of you.
Think about it clearly
as time moves along
we are the same
as dusk is to dawn.
We are with changes
the same as designs
as sticks and twigs
with confusing minds.
We’re often jumbled
in a stormy detail
scented with journeys
without a sail.
We’re sticks and twigs
of a destination
searching for truth
through investigation.
Looking to the sky
and the ground below
we’re sticks and twigs
that time does bestow.

Take A Seat

Throughout time
we need to rest
to then move on
and do our best.
So take a seat
from time to time
and rest your feet
and weary mind.
Don’t let lifetimes
bring you down
so take a seat and
lose that frown.
Look for sights
to bring a smile
a sky of blue
as clouds compile.
Find some peace
within the view
and don’t let life
to weather you.
Find a bench
or place to rest
and take a seat
let peace digest.

Beauty Of Life

A lake of beauty
a segment of blue
displays a glimmer
a wonderful hue.
Lily pads floating
with flowers upon
displaying colors
eyesight is drawn.
A special moment
with rippling scenes
begins a journey
for so many dreams.
The beauty of life
can be any sight
such as a morning
or darkness of night.
Far as a lakes shows
or pond in detail
the beauty of life
is time to inhale.
Breathe it in deeply
the waters of life
and then allow it
to ease your strife.
Look at the flowers
the lily pads too
and find much more
in waters of blue.
Find then a blessing
to fill your desire
the beauty of life
and all its entire.

Swinging With A Smile

Find your perception
in life’s breath of air
and swing in the breeze
with true love and care.
Seek for your survival
at peace with the day
as you swing with ease
while smiling away.
Look beyond sadness
and look beyond fear.
Find you a swing now
with life to endear.
Swing with a moment
maybe walking about
or swing by the ocean
as it goes in and out.
Swinging with a smile
is something you can do
to bring peace to life
and store within you.
Allow yourself moments
to rest for a while
as you find recreation
swinging with a smile.

Peaceful Comes

Seen for a moment
is a pond so blue
creating portions
of my certain view.
Hills in the distance
are echoes to see
found as a blessing
that God gave to me.
Peaceful is scented
with Heaven’s delight
painted with colors
of daytime so bright.
Peaceful comes slowly
as life moves along
singing its melodies
as words to a song.
Clouds moving slowly
across the days sky
as water reflects them
in the pond as reply.
The day writes words
as journals of time
as the peaceful comes
and lives in my mind.
It’s as an orchestra
instruments playing
beauty so heavenly
with time engaging.
It seems to be playing
guitars and drums
what that I perceive
as peaceful comes.

Haiku
for Aug 18,  2018

The virtues of life
are as windows to blessings
that we see clearly.

Time isn’t patient
for it stops for nobody
as it must move on.

Life is a mirror
reflecting all that we do
into others eyes.

Lost in a whirlwind
you might never see the end
until you’re thrown out.

On beyond the sky
holds a view from another
that might have answers.

The seams of a life
are often found as stitches
found through survival.

Looking for a time
to undo all that is done
might leave you searching.

Circles are doorways
found as repetitiveness
filled with redundance.

The light of a day
cannot follow into night
unless it is God.

Seamless are journeys
that seem to never change views,
but yet they’re changing.

Deserted highways
hold the void of destination
found as tumbleweeds.

When life gives lemons
look for lessons in the path
to make you stronger.

Raindrops from a cloud
are as blessings from Heaven,
but sometimes from Hell.

An opened window
can allow the outside in
and the inside out.

The Scientist’s thoughts
can create turmoil in truth,
for what they don’t know.

A book of ages
has many time frames to see
as the pages turn.

Our basic knowledge
is what we’ve learned throughout life,
but many have none.

As a doorbell chimes
it speaks without any words,
yet we understand.

The howl of a wolf
tells a story of its life
as it hunts its prey.

The wants that we have
are often confused with needs
and we don’t need them.

Throughout history
we’ll often make the mistakes
we’ve made time again.

Today is anew
as yesterday’s a shadow
that we remember.
