Our Own Patterns

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

This passed week has been more like spring.
Right now it’s 76 F degrees and for the rest of
the week it’s supposed in the lower to mid 70’s.
Yep,  that’s spring weather.  I think the boys
are enjoying the warmer weather and all,  but
I’m sure they still miss the snow.  They loved
to play in it.  It will most surely return hehehe.
In the mean time,  we’re going enjoy spring
and summer 🙂  Yeppers,  the trees have leaves
on them now and the dandelions have begun
sprouting up all over the freaking place LOL.
Our new neighbor is mowing right now.  He
might managed to get a few of them sneeze
weeds mowed,  but in the process stir them up.
The new neighbors seem to be decent,  but
time will tell.  You can never truly know a
person in just a few days.  Nope,  as we all
do from time to time,  we put up a front
while wanting to make a good impression 🙂
Yet,  reality seems to always surface and
the real you says hello.  You might not do
it intentionally,  but it’s something we all
do at certain moments,  like applying for
a job or meeting someone new.  So what
else has been going on around this place?
Well,  we’ve been doing pretty much the
same ole same ole.  Watching all of our
favorite TV programs and trying to find
new ones to watch as many have season
finales.  It’s great that we enjoy pretty
much the same programs and all.  There
are a few that we don’t like as the same,
but we still watch them and enjoy them.
At the moment both of the boys are tired
and sleeping in the floor between Judy
and I.  Actually Rocky is using Judy’s
computer chair leg as a bed and Benny
is in a doggy bed right beside me.  They
must of worn themselves out from all of
the pandemonium of treat time and the
fact that they kept me up most of the
morning,  wanting my attention.  It
was mostly Rocky.  I was trying to
get some sleep and he kept coming to
my side of the bed and finding my hand
to lick on it and play with it.  I was on
my back trying to rest and he kept on
messing with my right hand.  Finally
he went to Judy’s side of the bed and
jumped up and over her to get to me
and I had to catch him and say,  go to
your own bed you silly thing.  Let dad
get some freaking sleep will ya LOL.
Then he laid down in the floor right
beside me for a bit,  until getting ip
and finally going to lie in his own bed 🙂
I guess he was missing Benny LOL.
I had let Benny out to go potty with
Rocky,  but Benny wasn’t ready to
come back in when Rocky was and
so I was getting the repercussions of
that hehehe.  I might have to lie back
down after I finish writing,  because
my eye is really tired.  Yes I said eye.
Most of you know I am blind in my
left eye LOL.  My right eye gets the
brunt of it all while trying to do the
job of 2 eyes hehehe.  Anyways,  I
don’t think there’s much to watch on
TV tonight so I might grab me about
30 or 40 minutes of nap time if the
boys will allow me hehehe.  Gotta
love them boys <3 🙂  Normally if
it’s just me in the bed.  the boys will
just jump up and go to sleep hehehe.
That’s the same that they do with
Judy,  but if it’s both of us lying in
bed,  they tend to get excited.  OK
Rocky gets all excited.  Benny still
just heads to the end of the bed and
lies down.  It seems that they will
worry about one another.  Like if
one of them is still outside,  then the
other will come to tell us to let them
in.  Rocky starts spinning in circles
when he gets excited LOL.  These
boys bring us a lot of smiles even
through their cantankerousness 🙂 <3
Yep,  they keep us moving.  Rocky
just told us that he needs to go out
and Judy let him out and of course
Benny went out with him hehehehe.
My weather program says only 10%
chance for rain,  but I can smell it.
My senses are rarely wrong hehehe.
My Spidy senses are a tingling LOL.
Yes,  I’m weird,  but aren’t we all
in our own little ways.  Each one of
us has a weirdness that lives and
thrives.  You might not display it as
I do,  but I’m positive you do.  It’s
our humanity of differences in the
melting pot of life.  We all have our
own ways of doing things,  but you
might hold back your way of thinking
in fear of being called out weird or
wrong.  God made us each one with
our own patterns.  Even identical
twins or mirrored twins have their
differences.  Thank God for your
unique heartbeat,  for that’s what
that makes you special.  You might
think that you have nothing great to
share,  but even the smallest of things
can be largest through a turnstile.
OK,  now I believe I have gone and
rambled quite enough and it’s time
for me to be taking my little trip
back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find a good word
or phrase that I can use for the title
for today’s brand new poem.  So,
it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  Hmm,
I think I found a decent title just a
few lines back.  Now I’ve gotta try
and formulate some words together
in form of a poem using it hehehe.
Here goes nothing 🙂  LOL and that
might be so true,  but I’ll try 🙂

Our Own Patterns

The pictures that ones see
in our lives of day to day
might be subsequently seen
as the most ridiculous way.
For our own patterns formed
are the way God meant to be,
for what that makes you,  you
is what that makes me,  me.
We might so often falter
in our daily times cuisine
and our own patterns might then
find nightmares in a dream.
We’ve each got our own perspective
of which way and what time,
while often in your doorway
might just be your own design.
Lord God made us each one
with the ways our circle turns,
found as our own heartbeats
within our own patterns

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
If not,  then maybe next week.  Did all of
my rambling put ya to sleep?  If so,  then
at least one of us got a nap LOL.  Every
time I go to the bathroom or kitchen or
for that matter any part of the house,  I
have Rocky right behind me hehehe.  He’s
my little shadow.  Although,  he also does
that to Judy.  Benny just watches from his
perch on his favorite recliner.  He listens
for the words,  treats or food LOL.  He’s
always ready for those 2 things.  Plus if
Benny thinks I am giving Rocky too much
attention,  he’ll come in and scoot himself
between me and Rocky insisting that I
pet him LOL.  They always pester Judy
for treats hehehe.  I guess they think that
she’s the treat lady hehehe. They love her.
Rocky’s lying in the floor right behind her.
We enjoy having their little heartbeats
around.  They keep us entertained 🙂
So,  I reckon before I get caught up in
Rambles Ville again,  I need to tell you
what I tell you almost every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with
an added 3 that I wrote yesterday while
Judy was at her sister’s house making
crafts,  but none are Christmas poems.
Anyways,  once again I wrote 22 haiku
for all of the haiku lovers out there.
I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either or
both that you like.  Now,  I believe it’s
time for me to begin my search for that
not so great at hiding off switch,  but
not before I wish you a most blessed
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a truly wonderful week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
where oh where is that off switch at?
Where oh where can it be?  Can it be
hiding behind my aspirins or my soda
water?  Nope,  I see it.  You would
think out of all the time that you’ve
had to find a good hiding spot,  you
would find a better place other than
behind my eyedrops you silly LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to Judy’s new book as at
the end of the journal along with the
others.  Enjoy 🙂

P.S. again,  it snowed again last Monday.
The boys totally loved it hehehe.  I took
them on a field trip 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+3 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Bike Riders

Beginning by morning
on down the road
I’ve seen bike riders
carry a load.
Struggling up hill
then gliding down
morning bike riders
to and from town.
We’ve got the notion
to join in the ride
on our bicycles
with efforts applied.
So you might see us
soon day to day
riding our bicycles
a slow motion way.
Yes we are old now
and we don’t go fast
so if you see us then,
just go on passed.

What Seems To Work

Thoughts of a concept,
figured and found,
might bring you good luck
or just bring you down.
What seems to work
on a day long ago,
might find today now
you really don’t know.
With minutes found passing
as time ticks along
what seems to work
might be very wrong.
Don’t be discouraged
how time frames inlay,
for sometimes our journey
is for another day.
Often the doorways
with what seems to work
might in fact surely
leave you in the dirt.
You might find one day
that moment,  that time,
what seems to work
that clears up your mind.

Heaven Holds True

Lives come and go
from here where we are,
while time marches on
as a living shooting star.
Heaven holds true
its sweet streets of gold
waiting for us
and time to unfold.
We’re on a journey
you and I of our own
headed down pathways
we might need atone.
God sends us angels
to help us along
maybe as friendships
that grow oh so strong.
Many are walking
or running to view
while some are doubting
what Heaven holds true.
Time is a gateway
to what we will find.
Heaven holds true
the greatest of time.

Dog Star

That star at night
on the heels of the Hunter
shines oh so bright
and makes many wonder.
The Dog Star entails
the stories well told
a fantastic picture
that the stars unfold.
Standing with a sword
and shield in the sky
the Dog Star is where
the Hunter’s heels lie.
Its brightness procures
its place in design
found in formation
of the zodiac sign.
It’s known as Sirius
the Dog Star by night
displayed in the sky
while shining so bright.
A fantastic wonder
that so many see
the Dog Star we find
in this large galaxy.

Journey’s of A Leaf

A windy day showing
a pathway to see
gives reason for believing
what God gave for free.
Pictures painted daily
as a formula found
journey’s of a leaf
that fell on the ground.
Distantly the breezes
are bringing forth scenes
painting us a picture
that could be our dreams.
The scenes then concur as
a ticking time bomb
the journey’s of a leaf
that are there and then gone.
Life becomes a pattern
that blows in the yard
journey’s of a leaf
as a fall greeting card.

Absence Of Time

The sky is a painting
an artist perception,
God with His paintbrush
needs no correction.
Time is His pathway
that’s always enough
to display some artwork
as clouds with a fluff.
The absence of time
is His there to gain,
to decide what to do
with lightning and rain.
God holds the choices
time frames to choose,
what is to gain then,
what is to lose.
Always remember that
God has control
with the absence of time
in His to and fro.

When Last Is First

Now is just a moment
that time has displayed
when you might seem first
in what that is made.
Yet with a turnstile
opening and closing
what might seem first
might be decomposing.
For as we’re beginning
our journeys through time
we might switch places
with rhythm and rhyme.
It might mean accepting
the changes in life
and not just allowing
a heart filled with strife.
For when last is first
and first is found last
it’s still found complete
the time frame the task.

A Little Nudge

Stagnated minds
often need someone
to help them to see
what can be begun.
Maybe a little nudge
to open their eyes
and help them to see
what time can arise.
Sometimes a second
that you give to them
can be the very thing
to help them begin.
Maybe in the future
you might then find too
you need a little nudge
to get you on through.
So don’t be a heartless
self appointed judge,
for sometimes we all
just need a little nudge.

Within The Stars

Up above me in the sky
the sights are always changing.
Daytime shows the fluffy clouds
that are always rearranging.
Nighttime shows a different view
with stars so bright to see
twinkling in an endless ocean
that God gave you and me.
Seasons find the minutes changing
showing lights of green,
maybe of my own perception
in that starlight scene.
Pages seem to turn to show
our galaxy of praise
found within the stars we see
and also light of days.
The sights above might seem to be
a sky with flying cars,
but it is our galaxy
that’s found within the stars.

The Largest Things

When largest meets
a place and time,
the smallest might
be best design.
The largest things
we think are best,
might not be
what wins the test.
The size alone
that we perceive,
might not show
the best to weave.
It’s not always
size that counts,
but the wanna
by the ounce.
If you’re always
diamond rings
you might want
the largest things,
but large has
no guaranty
on happiness
or history.

Laughable

A joke,a prank,
a timeless ploy
so laughable
might just annoy.
Without a thought
of right or wrong
so laughable
might not belong.
A certain style
a moment done,
so laughable
might make ones run.
Without planning
what to do
so laughable
might just be you.
The joke the smoke
and mirrors made
so laughable
might be mislaid.
So don’t just joke
and seek a smile,
for it might be
a saddened while.
The time you meant
so laughable,
might end up not so
apropos.

Scenarios

Lost in changes
time is seen
our scenarios
in-between.
Portions tattered
often born
are so often
pages torn.
Times scenarios
now and then
become doorways
where we’ve been.
Stages standing
holding true
our scenarios
through and through.
With each minute
moments find
our scenarios
in our mind.
Ticking time bombs
that might blow
our scenarios
to and fro.
Scenarios of
our now today
need Lord God
to guide our way.

Displacement Of Your Heart

As the rhythm of a drum
that’s beating as a heart
the days can go on living
while a moment falls apart.
Displacement of a second
that an hour seems to find
can turn into a storm cloud
with confusion on the mind.
A day amidst our journey
can become a lightning bolt
lit up through our pathway
and leaving quite a jolt.
The doorways that we enter
might not be so good to go,
for often they are trouble
filled with bitterness and woe.
Lord God can make the journey
a most precious work of art
even through the moments
of displacement of your heart.

Haiku
for May 20,  2016

Sometimes anytime
is the proper reaction,
but sometimes it’s wrong.

Looking to the west
for the sunshine’s arrival
can be hard indoors.

Waiting on flowers
could turn into a stalemate
if they’re not watered.

A gleam of sunshine
can brighten up darkened days,
but take heed the rain.

Clouds filled with moisture
will soon become too heavy
and raindrops will fall.

Afternoon shadows
will be seen from the sunlight
that hides behind trees.

Faded memories
can be revived by pictures
to entail the time.

Choices of a bee
are that of seeking honey
or defend the hive.

Countless are the days
that many will be echoes
of what they did wrong.

Less judgment from us
could allow growth between us,
for God’s the true judge.

A starry night sky
can become a captains map
to guide through the seas.

Chances for summer
come as minutes from springtime
to bright sunny days.

With windows opened
you can let in the raindrops
and breezes that blow.

Our past and present
might often seem as echoes
that we have not learned.

Meaningless chatter
can become as a lesson
for us through patience.

A bird in the sky
seeks a place of which to land
and rest from its flight.

Dreaming of snowflakes
can grow a prospective sight
deep within your mind.

Yes can become no
with the perception we see
and how we react.

Storms growing in life
are often begun by us
and our choices made.

Within our worry
can be troubles surmounted
grown by our own thoughts.

Discovering views
might disclose our ignorance
of things that we thought.

Realities paint
is used by mother nature
to color the scenes.

The Summers

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s a rainy day today up here in Maine
and it does no good for me to complain.
Yesterday was nice though.  Christian,
our grandson came Saturday and stayed
the night with us.  Me and him went to
town and got us all Sub sandwiches for
dinner last night and donuts to have for
breakfast today.  When Helena (his mom)
came to pick him up we all had donuts 🙂
Last Sunday night it started snowing and
made for a weird evening.  Of course the
ground was too warm for snow to stick
to it,  so it melted as quickly as it landed.
Tuesday we had a mystery gift left on
our front door steps hehehe.  A shoe box
with a purple table runner in it.  LOL we
found out later that it was one of Judy’s
nieces that dropped off the mystery gift.
Before we found out,  we were both in a
state of confusion trying to figure out
what was going on hehehe.  It seems her
niece Heather and her son Russell were
in a funny mood that day LOL.  Judy had
a doctors appointment Wednesday and I
did as I always do,  I took pictures there
and back hehehe.  I took a few selfies
that night as well LOL.  Friday I did a
few more selfies.  I uploaded a few of
them to Facebook hehehe.  Then when
Helena brought Christian over yesterday
I took a few pictures of them.  Christian
was tinkering with my conga drums and
I got a few pictures of that hehehe.  It’s
actually been a peaceful week around
the Pearce’s Place.  Our new neighbors
are fairly quiet aside from their dog that
they put out on leash time to time I assume
for her to go potty.  Every once in a while
we hear kids playing and sometimes see
them playing ball,  but that’s about it 🙂
Benny barks every time he hears them
moving about and I’ve gotta holler at
him to tell him to hush.  Hopefully one
day he’ll finally get used to them being
there,  that’s of course if they don’t move
off before that happens hehehe.  So far,
our neighbors have changed almost like
the changing of a baby’s diaper hehehe.
I’m holding off this time on getting to
know them.  I’ve met them,  but I really
don’t know much about them just as I
don’t know much about the other kids
that moved into the trailer across the
way.  I do know that they have a little
Chihuahua named Freddy that Benny
has found a friend in.  Benny and Rocky
have yet to of personally met Pebbles
our new neighbors dog.  They spend a lot
of time watching her from a distance
when she’s tied up in back to go potty 🙂
Yeppers,  life here in this little sector of
the world is just a moment of time that
paints itself with seconds with some of
them found peaceful and some are with
dogs barking.   None the less,  it’s not
too bad.  I have had worse hehehe.  Yep,
it can always be worse.  Judy’s heading
up to Eagle Lake tomorrow with her twin
sister Trudy to see their mom for her 85th
birthday.  They’ll visit with their brother
Ricky while they’re there I’m sure.  Me
and the boys will just hang loose together
and maybe if the weather’s not too bad
head out for a field trip.  But it’s supposed
to SNOW and rain tomorrow a little bit,
so we’ll see.  Yes,  snowing this late in
May is sort of weird,  but this is Maine 🙂
Right now at 4:30 PM it’s 52 F degrees.
Tomorrow’s forecast is a high of 46 F.
Like I said,  we’ll see if the weather is
nice enough for a field trip for me and
the boys 🙂  If it’s not raining we might
go.  The snowing part,  doesn’t bother
me and surely not the boys LOL.  They
love the snow and so do I for that matter.
Yesterday was one of the warmest days
that we’ve had this year.  It was in the
upper 70’s nearly 80 F degrees.  It’s
not looking like we’ll have any more of
that for a while,  at least a week or so.
My weather program shows we might
get into the lower 70’s by maybe Friday,
but until then,  beginning tomorrow our
forecast is a high of 46 F with Tuesdays
high of 56,  then Wednesday’s high of
64F and Thursday’s high of 66 F degrees.
LOL just call me the weatherman LOL.
It’s hard to believe that Judy and I have
lived up here now for over 8 years.  It
seems like we just moved up yesterday,
of course aside from it being 8 years :).
People keep asking me if I miss Texas.
Well of course I miss Texas.  That’s my
home state and where I spent over 50
years of my life,  but I don’t miss the heat.
The summers are way too hot for me.
That’s what I like about up here.  It’s not
near as hot during the summers.  Now the
winters are another story hehehe.  They
make Texas winters look like springtime.
LOL,  but the weird part about it is,  I like
it.  I love snow and will often be seen out
rolling around in the snow with the boys
or out taking pictures of the scenery as
it develops with the snowflakes falling.
Yep,  I do find myself more at home up
here than I did down south,  but it gets
back to the fact that I miss my family and
friends.  I also miss being able to drive
down to Port Aransas Texas.  Judy also
misses that.  We spent many wonderful
days down on that southern Texas Isle
as we watched and took pictures of the
sunrise and the waves as they crashed
ashore along with all of the scenes that
occurred each day.  Yep,  we miss those
special times,  but thankfully we have tons
of pictures and videos to help us to relive
those moments.  Still we’re hoping to one
day return to our magical place on that
sandy shore and add more memories to
our collection.  I also want to visit my
family and friends that I haven’t seen in
such a long time.  God willing,  that will
all come to be.  In the mean time,  I guess
I’ll continue as I have and just make the
best of the time I have as best that I can.
Thank You God for allowing me to see
the beauty all around me that I can take
pictures of.  Life isn’t meant to always be
a beautiful sight.  We need the ugly times
to help the beauty to stand out.  Without
our struggles,  our accomplishments will
maybe turn to just a passing day without
the excitement of the gain.  Be thankful
for your struggles,  for they’re what that
help you to grow.  .  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 little place of
my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found a
fairly decent title just a little ways back
in my writing.  I used a form of this title,
but not this form.  So,  here goes nothing
and nothing might be right hehehe,  but
I hope not LOL.

The Summers

Seasons reasons
come and go
with the moments
that will flow.
With the winters
cold and white
there is also
little light.
Spring awakens
giving true
flowers blooming
for our view.
Then the summers
bring their heat
some with many
burning feet.
Across a sandy
shore of time
is the summers
own divine.
Picture paintings
God has done
with the summers
brightest sun.
Then comes autumn
fall is said
leaves are falling
for they’re dead.
Leaving colors
all around
in the trees
and on the ground.
Yet the summer’s
still in view
of what many
wish were true.
Reminiscing
a sandy shore
in the summers
evermore.

Okie dokie,  there ya go.  I hope that made
you smile.  Hey,  all of my poems don’t have
to be serious hehehe.  I write many of them
through memories,  fantasies,  fact or fiction.
That’s one thing about me hehehe.  I write
what ever happens to be on my mind,  be it
whatever it may be LOL.  If you didn’t like
the poem,  then Oh well.  Maybe next week,
but I can’t promise anything hehehehehehe.
So,  I wonder if I have forgotten to tell you
anything.  Hmm,  OH yea,  keep my sister
in law Dena in your prayers.  She’s in the
hospital now due to colon problems.  Her
and the rest of Judy’s sisters are more like
sisters to me than sister in laws.  Please
put Dena on your prayer list.  So what else
is there to tell you?  Hmm,  can’t think of
anything.  So I guess that means it’s time
for me to be telling you what I tell you
almost every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
I wrote 10 more poems with 1 being yet
another Christmas poem.  I did though
end up writing 3 extra poems,  so that ups
the amount to 13 poems.  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 what
that’s left of it and a truly blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now,  where’s that confounded
off switch trying to hide this week LOL?
I guess trying to hide is a of bit stretch for
describing how bad its hiding places are.
LOL like I said.  Hehehe would ya look
there.  Right smack in front of me behind
my Advair AGAIN.  Sheesh,  did you not
get the memo,  that hiding behind an item
that I use quite often might not be the best
place to hide?  You are so freaking lazy 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to Judy’s new book as at
the end of the journal along with the
others.  Enjoy 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+3 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Acquaintance

One’s perception
of things they see
might be what ones
will disagree.
Ones acquaintance
might display
the path ones walk
from day to day.
Just by seeing
ones can’t tell
that acquaintance
very well.
They might surely
hide from you
the way they think
and things they do.
So when meeting
greeting friends
know acquaintance
life depends.

Waiting For Summer

The tick tock of timing
with mindsets galore
are waiting for summer
to come through the door.
Those with their surfboards
and swimsuits for sun
are waiting for summer
to have them some fun.
Time begins moving on
as they are waiting
life in the waters then
anticipating.
Patience is trying
while time frames tick on
while those of the summer
wait for the dawn
Yes there are many that
seek for those waves
waiting for summer
those wonderful days.

Summertime Skies

Beginning by morning
comes such a surprise
as clouds in formation
with summertime skies.
The changes in patterns
are often well kept
found as an ocean
where blue skies have slept.
Scenes turn to paintings
with brushstrokes to see
in the summertime skies
above you and me.
Motions as oceans
the clouds seem to float
daylight to dark night
as a fluffy white boat.
Scenes seem as magic
as they each one comprise
clouds of such beauty
in the summertime skies.

New Limerick Moon

As nighttime comes calling,
the stars come out to play
twinkling as many miracles
in their own little way.
The seasons all react to
the nighttime’s own potion
often as a memoir
of an inquisitive ocean.
A certain style pageantry
has a gift wrapped surprise
as a New Limerick moon
seen with so many eyes.
Starlight becomes glitter
that twinkles in the night
seeming as lightning bugs
found in moonlight.
Then the night’s woken
with the sound of a loon
as nighttime comes calling
on a New Limerick moon.

A Painted Mystery

Written as a journal,
painted as a thought,
time is a doorway
to what one’s forgot.
So as a memoir
of subsequent time
a painted mystery
remembers the mind.
For when we’re older
and cannot remember
a painted mystery
might become an ember.
Seen as a question
with answers to find,
a painted mystery
might help you define.
So with a moments
forgotten history,
time is recalled with
a painted mystery.

Whispers Of Silence

Silence hears voices
as breezes will blow
tree limbs just swaying
the words that they know.
Whispers of silence
as seasons of rhyme
poured out like water
within its design.
Silence is golden,
yet often not found,
for there are whispers
of seasonal sound.
Pages of ages
written as a word
whispers of silence
that nobody heard.
Sometimes the whispers
are just but a frame,
timelessly written
for us to attain.
Whispers of silence
might be just a sound,
that’s within the air
and felt on the ground.
Seasons will whisper
their own little words
maybe as a dewdrop
or a large flock of birds.
Yet many stories
are sometimes intense
filled full of wonder,
whispers of silence.

Throughout Life

Now is a pathway
onto tomorrow
often with sadness,
often with sorrow.
The sands of time
are life as grains
an hourglass
that time attains.
Throughout life
are twists and turns,
often bridges
someone burns.
Lessons doorway
opens wide
throughout life
ones go inside.
Then within them
doors will close
throughout life
the choices chose.
Yet some chances
come with prayer
throughout life
with love and care.
Use those chances,
change your path
from the rocky
journeys wrath.
Find the doorway
true to you
throughout life
the best to do.

Guiding Lights

Captains vessels
sailing true,
day and night
in seas of blue
need the starlight
to be there
guiding lights
that none compare.
Waves come rolling
vessels toss
as the ocean
shows who’s boss.
Captains steer through
crashing seas
guiding lights
make it a breeze.
Yet the ocean
has a way
of tossing rogue
a night or day.
But the captain
strong and true
carry’s onwards
seas of blue.
Stars that twinkle
guide the course
through the heavy
oceans force,
but a lighthouse
might be found
keeping ships from
solid ground.
Miles are gathered
in the nights
with directions
guiding lights.

Escaping Yourself

As life finds you standing
just looking around
seeing the places
that you have been found,
look up to Heaven
and say a little prayer
Lord God please help me
to change my despair.
Time can be endless
in view from within
and escaping yourself
needs you to begin.
Look now for new days
as life moves along
and let loose of hateful
to find a new dawn.
Escaping yourself
can be done with time
to find then a new you
with better design.
Sometimes our pathways
that found us so young
stuck with us always
and all that’s among.
Yet if you start now
and dust off the shelf
you can find new days
escaping yourself.

Beyond The Season

Snow seasons over,
but memories live on
beyond the season
of winter now gone.
Even those wonderful
Christmas songs sung
live now within me
as blessings were brung.
Time shows a pathway
to now and agin
beyond the season
of sweet winters wind.
Christmas is still now
in my memories
as all of the lights
and great Christmas trees.
Yesterdays shadows
are always on mind
painted as pathways
of great Christmastime.
For I can still always
recall the reason
Christmas through Jesus Christ
beyond the season.

As Time Rolls Along

Our yesterdays memories
are often misled
the way we remember
inside of our head.
The past paints a picture
we might misconceive
as time rolls along
in the way we believe.
Some will look back
on their lives long ago
and see a better life
than truth did bestow.
Yes you may have played
and had some great fun,
but the past has a way of
distorting what’s done.
So don’t let today
to be filled with regret
for the best might become
what you haven’t yet.
The past you remember
might have some great times,
but you were so young
seeing nickels and dimes.
The future that’s before you
might have a surprise,
a life that’s much better
that’s for your two eyes.
So don’t let the sunrise
to lose you at dawn,
for there are some good times
as time rolls along.

A Life of Years

A stories written
without ink
a life of years
the way we think.
The pages turn
with many blank
leaving many
shirts to yank.
Travels journeyed
far and wide
might be footprints
wished to hide.
A life of years
with many paths
might have sadness
and some laughs.
Look for goodness
not just tears
written in
a life of years.

Inflamed

Times of troubles,
times of pain,
many moments
seem insane.
Torments doorway
opens wide
letting troubles
come inside.
Though so often
times might be
inflamed moments
history.
Only portions
counted true
of the painful
within you.
Yet our eyesight
might not see
all the good
in you and me.
Look to find what’s
best inside
lifetimes roadway
for a ride.
See the good times
oh so clear
of the now
and yesteryear
Though so many,
times will find
rougher roads
with burdened mind.
Certain pathways
are attained
showing only
what’s inflamed.

Haiku
May 13,  2016

Amidst a storm cloud
a rainbow might coexist
to show good and bad.

Life in a mirror
might portray what that ones see,
but hide what’s within.

A journey through flowers
will enhance your love for life,
but beware of thorns.

Scenes time’s created
can change at a moments notice
by God’s Hands of time.

Effortless snowflakes
fall down as frozen water
and become beauty.

The simplest moments
are the ones that many miss,
because they are so small.

The travels of wind
begin wherever whenever
God so desires.

With mornings sunlight
comes choices for ones to make
to begin the day.

Essence of beauty
is not only what we see,
but what we don’t see.

Some people are blind,
seeing only others views
and don’t seek the truth.

The book of our lives
needs to have pages of growth
with our lessons learned.

Using a minute
to give time for more seconds
will surely catch up.

Yesterdays today
may have looked like misfortune,
but that day is gone.

Facts of a liar
have no beneficial hope
for they will not live.

Themes of a garden
can be pretty rose petals
or vines of ivy.

Windy afternoons
leave a mark upon the day
that leads to nighttime.

Cherished are mountains
that stand so tall with beauty
for someone to paint.

Times varieties
comes as raindrops to snowflakes
and even some hail.

Withholding info
that would help someone to grow
might fall back on you.

Simple melodies
can become the meat of life
as a song to sing.

A tall scarecrow
might not scare a away crows,
but just welcome them.

A glance at our past
often shows us regretful,
which should be thankful.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
&
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

Spring is in full blossom are at least it is
for up here 🙂  We’ve still got  a few 30 F
nights.  Though the days have been in the
60’s lately.  This week the daytime temps
are supposed to be in 50’s and 60’s.  That
isn’t too bad.  I would rather it to stay in
50′ and 60’s rather than the 80’s and 90’s.
70 F degrees I can handle,  but not much
over it.  In other words, I myself prefer
colder climate.  It rained a bit yesterday
and it’s looking like it could rain today if
it so desired hehehe.  Judy went over to
her twin sister’s house yesterday  for a
visit and she took the boys with her,  so
I had the day to myself 🙂  I did a little
writing and then took my conga drums
out in our driveway and did a Youtube
video to upload.  Yep,  it was a nice day,
but I missed Judy and the boys.  They
came home before too late and Judy
said that Rocky was always going in
and out the front doggy door and doing
his spinning thing.  I told her that I’m
fairly sure that meant he was ready to
come home LOL.  He missed daddy 🙂
Yeppers,  he missed daddy.  He ran in
here and jumped on me and gave me
a smile and a kiss.  There’s not much
else going on around here.  Judy and
I just got done eating our brunch and
now I feel bloated hehehe.  I think I
ate too much.  I fixed us blueberry
pancakes,  one egg a piece and some
sausages.  Yep,  I guess that was her
Mothers Day feast,  but then I often
make the same aside from blueberry
pancakes.  That was due to running
out of pancake mix and having to use
some blueberry muffin mix hehehe 🙂
They came out pretty good.  Anyways,
next topic.  OH YEA,  how on Earth
could I forget this,  We received Judy’s
book in the mail last Monday.  She
ordered ones for her sisters and our
daughters as well as her brother 🙂
We also each have a book.  I love it,
but it might not be everyones cup of
tea.  It’s about space and it is R rated.
I think it’s awesome.  We’re hoping
that it sells good.  I just know that
a lot you out there will love her book.
LOL anyways,  off of the infomercial
and back to my journal hehehehehe.
Last Tuesday we bought Judy a bike
and next month we’re going to buy
mine so that we can ride together
and hopefully lose some weight and
get in a little better shape.  We’ve
got a covered doggy trailer that we
bought a few years ago but I think
I’ve already told you about that in
last weeks journal LOL.  Anyways,
Judy’s bike is pink and has the old
style pedal brakes.  It has a basket
and a cell phone holder attached to
the handlebars.  LOL my bike won’t
be that girly hehehe.  Judy rode her
bike to the car from Walmart,  but
she didn’t realize how out of shape
she was or how tired her legs were
after walking all through Walmart
shopping and when she tried to stop
she fell over.  She skinned her knee
a little,  but she’s OK.  It’ll take a
while to get her legs strengthened up.
I’m sure I’ll run into similar problems.
My old legs have been aching and
gotten weak,  but hopefully we’ll get
in better shape during the summer.
Hmm,  what else is there.  Friday
I did a little conga drum video for
a little friend of mine on Facebook.
I try do things like that from time to
time.  You know,  personalize my
videos LOL.  She’s a good kid and
I wanted to do the video to cheer
her up.  She and many of my friends
are like family.  I have a few that
call me dad even if we have never
met in person and there’s no relation
between us other than God.  Life
has a way of finding roads towards
people that you find much more than
just friends.  Friendship is a blessing
and can become family.  I thank God
for all of my family and friends even
if there are a few of my family that
are not so close to heart.  But we’re
still family none the less.  Now that
I’m done rambling or should I say
for now hehehe,  I reckon it’s time
for me to be taking my little journey
back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find a good word
or phrase that I can use for the title
for today’s brand new poem.  So it’s
away I go to that place of recollection
I always like to call,  RECOLLECT
VILLE.  Hmm,  while looking back
it seems a phrase jumped out at me.
It’s just a few lines back and now it’s
time for me to see what I can do with
it.  Here goes……..Maybe nothing 🙂

Close To Heart

Our moms are more
than just someone
to give us life
a daughter or son.
They’re our mothers
to teach us well
and kiss our knees
when bikes have fell.
Close to heart
our mothers should be
each day in life
through history.
For times will come
when they are gone
an close to heart
is what lives on.
A mothers heart
that times foretold
should be with you
when you grow old.
So if you and her
are far apart
you can still keep her
close to heart.

So,  how’d I do?  LOL I know,  not that
great.  Anyways,  I just thought I should
write a Mothers Day poem and so that’s
what I did.  Rocky is sleeping in the floor
right beside me.  He loves his daddy LOL.
He loves his mom too.  It’s hard to be
in 2 places at the same time 🙂  Benny is
I’m assuming in the living room on his
favorite recliner acting as guard dog 🙂
I met our new neighbors yesterday and
it looks like they are real young.  The
oldest looks like he’s in his 20’s.  They’ve
got a dog,  not sure what kind,  but she’s
friendly.  Her name is Pebbles hehehe.
The boys have been sitting on our back
porch watching her,  but they know to
not go over there.  They had Pebbles
chained outside while they were having
a cookout.  Anyways,  they seem to be
nice kids.  They asked me what internet
we used and I told them that we used
Pioneer Broadband,  but Dish offers
internet if you want to go that way.
They said they’ll do Pioneer hehehe.
So now before I get into Rambles Ville
again I guess I need to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers 10 more poems with
1 of them being a Christmas poem.
I actually wrote 3 extra poems from
my alone time yesterday hehehe,  so
that ups the ante to 13 poems LOL.
I 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.  So now I guess it’s time
for me to begin my search for that
not so great at hiding off switch,  but
not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or whatever is left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do to.  Now,
where is that ornery off switch at?
Where can it be hiding this time?
Hmm,  I think I spie with my 1 good
eye a lump that does not belong and
it’s moving hehehe.  Hiding under
the instructions to our new doorbell
would of worked if you could just
learn how to sit still hehehehehehe.
Gotch,  see ya click zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to Judy’s new book as at
the end of the journal along with the
others.  Enjoy 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+3 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Fanfare For
The Common Man

Beneath the rhythms
are so many words
a story,  a glory
as a flock of birds.
A fanfare for
the common man
displays journeys
to walk or stand.
It may seem simple
times record,
but the fanfare
is times accord.
Believing in rhythms
isms explained
much of our journey
is surely attained.
Times we echoed
just but a plan
we found fanfare
for the common man.

Within Without

Before and after
times will flow
within without
where all we go.
The storms will brew
and then they’ll cease
within without
a bit of peace.
The hands of time
will tick on by
within without
and seem to fly.
Our memories
of now and then
within without
will enter in.
Those timeless days
we’ve thought about
might turn into
within without.

A Fabulous Time

A wonderful magical
time that I’ve seen
is sometimes fun times
found in a dream.
A fabulous time
that my heart perceives
is a time long ago
me playing in leaves.
Those youthful truthful
moments reflections
a fabulous time
of my perceptions.
Those days had blessings
in form of a tree
and house within it
that I built for me.
Riding my bicycle
on sunny days
a fabulous time
that’s now just a haze.
Those blessed days
of timeless past
a fabulous time
that’s now shadows cast.
I look so often
within my mind
and search in depth
real hard to find
those fabulous times
to bring to light
when sadness sways
my day and night.
Those joyful moments
I search to find
that help me smile,
a fabulous time.

The Sun Will Rise

A day of sadness
will soon demise
when goodness follows
the sun will rise.
For time keeps moving
seconds counted
good and bad times
days surmounted.
The sun will rise
to another day
once in a while
a different way.
The sands of time
an hourglass shows
the days and weeks
that nobody knows.
Until the moments
come into frame
the sun will rise
and surely exclaim.
Now’s just a portion
of new days to come
the sun will rise
to moments own drum.
So as the minutes
show life in the skies
each day will change
the sun will rise.

A Crystal Haze

A starry night
of coldness gleams
a crystal haze
within my dreams.
That haze becomes
much more to see
that’s crystallized
in you and me.
A crystal haze
of God filled light
shows its magic
in the night.
Seen as Heavens
times partaken
the starlight embers
then awaken.
The starlight crystals
night portrays
life above
a crystal haze.

Pearlescent Dreams

With starlight that twinkles
in a place faraway
some pearlescent windows
have much to display.
Scenes found in dreamland
of colorful rainbows
glittering magically
as dream time bestows.
Pearlescent memories
come alive in your mind
of a colorful dream world
of a so distant time.
Then you’re on a journey
to the stars up above
a pearlescent Heaven
that’s filled full of love.
Starlight then beacons
as glittering streams
of a Milky Way lifetime
in pearlescent dreams.

Thoughts Of Life

Thinking what’s before you
is a doorway of need
that’s often mistaken
as wants to succeed.
Our daily thoughts of life
are often not the best,
for sometimes they become
those times we detest.
So think not of wanna,
but what’s needed true
thoughts of a journey
that’s better for you.
Don’t let pure greediness
to take full control,
for if you allow it
you’ll pay a heavy toll.
Life filled with thinking
will often find strife
so take time for resting
in your thoughts of life

Reflections Of Night

Starry nights glitter
as a Heavenly display
might just be reflections
of another wondrous way.
Nights own portrayal
is a magical scene
that many only see when
found within a dream.
The stars up above us
and that one of daytime
display such a pathway
as a romantic rhyme.
All that is above us
that we may not see
might be another lifetime
for you and for me.
For as we each fathom
the nights of starlight
the days could be but only
reflections of night.

Happy Face

Joyful are the minutes
that seconds acquire
when a happy face comes
to put out the fire.
A smile from another
can become dominoes
one after another
wherever life goes.
A happy face smiling
can help ones so sad,
for the smile can infect them
and make them be glad.
A smile is a blessing
that we need to share
with patience and love
to ones everywhere.
Don’t let a frowny face
to always be found.
Find you a happy face
and lose that old frown.

Those Christmas Lights

Throughout the season
spring unto fall
those Christmas lights are
what I still recall.
My mind clearly sees them
those lights from afar
twinkling as we pass them
driving in our car.
The essence of Christmastime
comes with a glow
often with Christmas lights
and Christmas snow.
Then you can hear as
so many will sing
the joy of Our Lord
in a manger scene.
Blessings uncountable
come into frame
hopeful from Jesus Christ
His Holy Name.
Christmas bestows upon
us many sights
found just a twinkling
those Christmas lights.

A Day Alone

Weekends passing
time moves slow
a day alone is
to and fro.
Now meets shadows
glimpse of time
written in
a day of rhyme.
A day alone
where time stands still
minutes rolling
like a wheel.
A time for thinking
thoughts to gain,
time frames counted
to attain.
A day alone
with a sky of blue
gives my thinking
thoughts to do.
So as minutes
gather speed
a day alone
gives all I need.
Time for me then
to be found
writing about
each sight and sound..
For as sunshine
gleams so bright
a day alone
gives words to write.

Shadows Of The Past

Echoes of emotions
that incur into today
are glimpses of our lives
and how we got this way.
Those shadows of the past
of which you now perceive
can become many lessons
or an echo then to weave.
You can try and recreate them,
those times of long ago,
but the shadows of the past
won’t be the same to show.
Troubles will grow greater
as the shadows supersede
and yesterday might become
a time you do not need.
For now leads to the future
as yesterday is dust
with shadows of the past then
as just our wants and lust.
So don’t let baggage find you
with resentfulness contrast,
for yesterday is only
the shadows of the past.

The Lightless Stage

The dark of night
bestows its own
timeless moments
sightless zone.
Scenes become as
shadows gaze
with some fearful
moments ways.
The lightless stage
of darkened scenes
might reveal
nightmares and dreams.
The minutes grow
as fear is found,
the lightless stage
no sight,  but sound.
It’s within us
worries grow
from those moments
we don’t know.
A candle gleaming
will shine through
the lightless stage
of thereunto.

Haiku
for May 6,  2016

Time is a number
often counted with worry
and then expanded.

Life of a flower
is sometimes not visible,
for growth is within.

Seasons of worry
will acquire a field of weeds
to hide the green grass.

Journeys through our lives
often have a few potholes
to give us lessons.

Beneath starry skies
holds an imagination
found inside us all.

A dream for a time
could represent your sadness
for where you are now.

Trials of a fire
are often burdens we need
to make us more strong.

A heartbeats rhythm
can be seen in someone’s actions
and how that they march.

Left ways meets right ways
and then choices need chosen
to decide which path.

Standing in one place
and not moving in your life
will make you stagnate.

A footprint that’s seen
might be made by your own foot
and show your return.

Finding a moment
that has not been acquired
will sometimes be bad.

The leaves on the trees
show us their own perception
of seasonal days.

When ones get sleepy
their mind might see illusions
of past that occurs.

Looking through windows
you might see yourself gazing
back as reflections.

Without a second
a minute could not prosper
and time would stand still.

Sunlight by morning
becomes a guide each day
that leads to nighttime.

Looking for trouble
will maybe find you much more
that you can deal with.

A belief in ghosts
does not mean that you’re crazy,
it means you’re alive.

Someone’s disaster
might be replaced with blessings
to make us stronger.

Beneath a liar
holds an empty shell of life
growing to explode.

Answers to questions
often give us much sadness,
because they’re not good.

Maybe As A Ghost

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well,  it looks like May has finally gotten here
and springtime has even finally showed its face.
Yep,  right now it’s 63 F degrees and tonight
is supposed to get down to 38 F which isn’t too
bad.  I can even see a few buds coming to life
on the trees.  I’m sure in time the leaves will be
blowing in the wind rustling with their music
of spring and summer as they dance to their
own drummer.  This passed week has been a
fairly nice one.  We’ve taken the boys on a few
field trips.  They love playing out in field and
I think most of all they love doing it with us 🙂
Watching their little smiling faces running in
our direction brings joy to our hearts.  When
we got home from town the other day,  our
neighbors Chihuahua named Freddy came over
wanting to play.  Benny obliged him hehehe.
Freddy’s owner/mom came to get him,  but
Benny and Freddy were running all over the
place just having a blast.  Rocky just stood
and watched hehehe.  I think he was ready
to go in the house.  Rocky is a bit like Milo
was.  He prefers to be inside other than to
go for a ride in the car or take a run in the
field with us.  Yep,  when Rocky is ready
to come back inside,  he does exactly the
same as Milo did.  He barks once and then
waits and barks again and waits and then,
well you see the pattern.  Yeppers,  we’ve
got some silly boys.  We can often hear our
neighbors Chihuahua or Freddy if you will,
barking saying I wanna play with Benny 🙂
Rocky’s not that crazy about him and pays
little attention to Freddy,  but Benny loves
that little boy.  He just loves making friends.
Our landlord has a big German Shepherd
and Benny sees him and goes nuts wanting
to play,  but we fear that Calvin’s German
Shepherd might confuse Benny for a chew
toy hehehe.  It might go over well,  but until
we’re brave enough to let them meet mano
a mano hehehe,  it will have to wait hehehe.
I’m sure that one day that time will arise
and hopefully Calvin’s dog wants to play
as well LOL.  He’s friendly with me,  so
who knows.  Judy has gone with her sisters
up to Eagle Lake Maine today to visit her
brother Ricky and take him some cookies
and soda waters.  Ricky’s in a nursing
home up there.  Their mom is also in the
home with him.  That works out great.
They can visit them both while they’re
up there.  Eagle Lake is about 90 miles
north of us,  so I don’t expect them back
until late.  They left from here about 10
this morning and as normal every time a
noise is heard,  Benny gets all ecstatic and
starts barking thinking mom is home LOL.
Rocky will start spinning in circle with
excitement hehehe.  LOL when Rocky
gets excited about anything,  he spins in
circles 🙂  So every time there is a noise
outside I have to go to the living room
and open up the front door to show them
that nobody is here.  That’s the only way
to make them hush and that might also
slow down my writing process a tad LOL.
My Weather Watcher’s showing that we
might get some rain tomorrow.  It says
100% chance and according to my radar
it shows some rain clouds moving in from
the southwest.  So,  tomorrow might be
a bit damp beginning around noon hehehe.
Right now it’s cloudy and looks as if it
could rain 🙂  The temperature is going
down now.  It’s 61 F now at 5:30 PM 🙂
LOL by the weather reports you might
be able to tell that there’s not much to
tell.  The boys are in the living room
keeping a look out for mom.  Benny is
barking again,  I’m sure thinking that
Judy is home.  Well,  surprise,  it’s her
this time LOL.  She said,  they had a
nice visit with her brother and mom.
Yep,  now the boys can quit looking for
Judy and stop barking at everything
they hear thinking it’s her LOL.  So
hmm,  what else is there to talk about?
Well,  we’re going to see about buying
Judy a bicycle this month and buy me
one next month so we can do a little
riding and hopefully lose some weight.
We can’t afford to buy both of them
this month,  but we can buy one of
them.  We’ve been planning on this
for over a year 🙂  We’ve already got
a carrier for 2 dogs that we bought
a year ago or so that will attach to
the back of a bicycle so we can take
them with us on our bike rides.  Yep,
this summer,  Judy and I are hoping
to lose a little weight or at least give
it a good try 😉  I’m sure we’ll enjoy
the rides and fairly sure the boys will
after they get used to their carrier.
LOL,  I can hear our little neighbor
Freddy barking.  That little guy has
got some lungs on him hehehe.  It’s
not like they live right next door to
us ya know LOL.  Nope,  they’re
quite a distance away and he’s in
their house 🙂  Of course I’m fairly
sure that they have a window opened
that allows him to be heard outside.
Benny is always looking for him
when he goes outside.  Rocky just
goes about his daily business,  unless
it involves us or something hehehe.
Anyways,  I think Judy is fixing to
head to bed for a while.  Neither
of us slept much last night or this
morning and being she had to be up
and ready for her sisters to pick her
up at 9:30 this morning,  it made
for a short nap for her,  but I never
fell asleep.  I did though take an
hour or so catnap when she left 🙂
Catnap,  meaning I nodded a little
off and on as my body would allow
me to rest and of course with all
of my encounters with the boys
wanting to lie in bed with me LOL.
Benny wasn’t the problem.  Rocky
was wanting to snuggle up close
to me and made it hard for me to
relax especially when he laid on my
legs and chest as he would change
positions hehehe.  He finally got off
of the bed and me and I was able to
get a little rest.  I love them boys,
but sometimes they drive me crazy 🙂
I think I’m gonna have to shut the
door.  Judy’s sawing logs,  if ya know
what I mean hehehe.  I had to stop
and go get me another Mountain Dew
and saw Rocky sleeping in my spot
on the bed LOL.  Benny just strolled
in here to see what I was doing and
then headed back to his lookout post
on his favorite recliner in the living
room.  When he headed out,  I shut
the door to drown out the sounds
emanating from the bedroom LOL.
It seems we had a ghostly visitor
this morning hehehe.  I have a little
flashlight that you have to screw
the head of it to turn it on and it
turned on when Judy was in here
waiting for me to bring breakfast.
She told whom ever to turn it off and
they did.  Then she asked them to
turn it on again and it came back
on.  When I came in,  she had just
told the ghost to turn it on and she
pointed at the flashlight that has
been sitting in the very same place
forever LOL and then I said hello,
thanks for the kindly hello,  now
can you turn it off,  and off it went.
We asked them again to turn it on,
but I guess they had used up all
of their energy and they could only
get it to partially come on.  Anyways,
welcome to our haunted home LOL.
For all I know,  it might of been my
dad or Pawpaw.  Both of them had
a sense of humor and I often can
feel their presence around the house.
Many times when writing,  I can feel
a hand on my shoulder.  My dad used
to always love to watch me write and
he would often put his hand on my
shoulder and stand and watch.  God
has the power to allow whatever is
the Heaven that makes ones happy
when they pass.  Just because ones
body dies,  it does not always mean
that they’re gone for good.  They might
of become angels to watch over you
and I.  Yes I am a firm believer in
the supernatural such as ghost and
spirits.  Yes some are bad,  but many
are just spirits enjoying watching us
in our day to day lives and giving a
little nudge time to time to help us
find peace.  Don’t assume that all of
the spirits are good or bad,  but don’t
put them all in the bad category either.
God sends blessings in many different
forms.  We may not see the blessings
at work,  but they are there.  Maybe
as a ghost 🙂  Now I believe that I have
gone and rambled quite enough and
it’s time for me to be looking back on
all that I’ve written to see if I can find
a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem.
So,  it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title just a few lines back 🙂
Now to see if I can formulate a few
words into a poem using it.  Here goes.

Maybe As A Ghost

Heaven finds places
with faces we’ve seen
maybe as a ghost
in our life or a dream.
Many that passed on
will maybe just be
a ghost watching over
to help you and me.
Maybe as a ghost
they can do so much more
like displaying pathways
or open a door.
So often our loved ones
might find ways so true
maybe as a ghost
to help us accrue.
Maybe as a ghost,
they can untangle
our day to day lives
as guardian angel.

There ya go.  I’m sure many of you will
not like the poem,  but maybe a few of
you will.  I always write what the spirits
give me to say.  I know,  you might think
I’m crazy,  but really and truly,  I don’t
care.  I’m me and I write what comes to
me LOL.  Crazy or not,  it’s my thoughts.
I don’t think I have anything else to tell
you other than the usual.  So I reckon it’s
time for me to be telling you what I tell
you almost every week and that is,  I
wrote some more poems and haiku 🙂
Yep,  10 more poems with 3 of them
to my loving wife 🙂  Yet,  I did get a
little carried away and wrote 4 extra
poems so that adds up to 14 this week.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you
can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like.  So now I believe it’s time
for me to begin searching for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but surely
not before I wish you a most blessed
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
I truly glorious week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
where’s that ornery off switch hiding
this time?  Hmm,  not behind my soda
can or my aspirin bottle.  Where can
he be hiding this week?  AHA,  I see
you ya little whippersnapper.  Hiding
behind the small statue that our old
neighbors gave me would’ve worked
if you would just learn to stay still
and not be peeking to see if I can
see you.  LOL Learn to stay hidden.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+4 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

My Timeless Heart

The days and nights
of wishful ways
my timeless heart
is what displays
The things I thought
and wished for too
my timeless heart
holds dear to you.
My loving wife
of magical times
my timeless heart
shows so many rhymes
The times connections
to places seen
my timeless heart
holds dear each dream.
We’ve found the paths
to now and today
my timeless heart
is a magical way.

Beneath The Sun

On a summers day
that I’ve memorized
I can still feel it
that great day comprised.
Waves rolling inwards
onto a sandy shore
beneath the sun
where we do adore.
A few clouds blow in
and paint up the sky
as the sun keeps on shining
with us you and I.
We watched as the mornings
brought in a view
a sunrise shining
above the ocean blue.
We snapped some pictures
of our summertime fun
on an island paradise
beneath the sun.

The Trees Will Blow

The leaves on trees
will rustle around
with tunes of springtime
sight unto sound.
The trees will blow
as breezes rush by
and branches will sway
up so very high.
When night partakes
to join in the scene
the trees will blow
and create a dream.
As night moves on
and daytime arrives
the trees will blow
with all that survives.
Just like an ocean
with waves that will roll
the branches will sway
the trees that will blow.

Thick And Thin

Through our yesterdays
now brings a day
through thick and thin
a brand new way.
The passed mistakes
of yesterdays while
can help us today
to find a true smile.
Our age is just numbers
counted and stored
creating more then
to climb aboard.
Don’t let the numbers
to lose you in frame,
for they’re only numbers
to give us the gain.
Yet if we’re foolish
and fall back on time
our trublesome worries
will become a rhyme.
So don’t let the moments
to echo what’s bad.
Use the passed moments
to then become glad.
For as the years pass
and days all fly by,
our lives will get better
if we’ll give a try.
Allowing God’s blessings
to grow within you
the thick and thin days
will shine of anew.

Space And Time

While sleeping and dreaming
I found myself flying
throughout the cosmos
with time frames arriving.
Space had become Heaven
with time that occurred
with but a motion
and with but a word.
Space and time found me
near to the stars
with a galaxy matrix
that’s so unlike ours.
I saw a small spaceship
that came flying by
and I sought out to grab it,
but do not know why.
It just seemed to amaze me
with its blinking blue
and space and time entered
to clear up my view.
I saw little people
just waving at me
in this space and time moment
my dream helped me see.
They held up a sign
with some alien words
that I had envisioned
as flock of wild birds.
The sign that they held up
I then understood.
It said I am falling
into my neighborhood.
The stars became blurry
and the spaceship was gone
as my space and time venture
was welcoming dawn.
My sleep had then ended
and my dream was no more
of the space and time venture
in starlight I’d soar.

The Bird of My Heart

True love is the wings
of a feathery love
the bird of my heart
that has come from above.
She swooped as an angel
to gather my heart
as she moved deep inside me
as God’s work of art.
I saw her in moments
as words written down
this one that I love now
with eyes of deep brown.
She showed me a minute,
she showed me a time
as we joined together
our rhythm and rhyme.
So as the pages
of our book are seen
the bird of my heart
is my wonderful dream.

Leftover Time

Times that were borrowed,
times that we used,
will often become as
what all we abused.
Each with our journeys,
each with our path
often misleading
what turns aftermath.
The things found leftover
are often just weeds
planted in topsoil
what we thought as needs.
Time begins moving
with hands on a clock
showing what’s counted
and what that’s tick tock.
Now turns to hours
as days all fly by
with leftover time
and us asking why.

Rose Covered Eyes

Seeing only beauty
and not seeing true
brings an illusion
into every view.
Rose covered eyes
with a pinkish inlay
often causes problems
with day after day.
We need to see truthful,
we need to see clear
what changes we’re needing
with year after year.
Rose covered eyes
only work for a while
and then you need truthful
to frown or to smile.
Yet don’t just cry
over things going wrong.
Make the right changes
before time moves on.
Look for the beauty
with your rose covered eyes,
but don’t let it fill you
with a lifetime of lies.

Clouds Of Ages

Near the stars
in skies of blue
clouds of ages
briskly flew.
Making pictures
ones can see
clouds of ages
you and me.
Days are counted
far and wide
clouds of ages
coincide.
Some as flavors
cotton candy
clouds of ages
some seem sandy.
Making oceans
beaches shore
clouds of ages
are much more.
They’re the raindrops
held intact
clouds of ages
some abstract.
Pictures seen by
our two eyes
clouds of ages
in the skies.
So as moments
give to you
clouds of ages
times to view,
look more closely
seamless stages,
find the beauty
clouds of ages.

Spring Unto Summer

Seasons pass surely
as days we recall
spring unto summer
and then unto fall.
Winter brings snowflakes
to so many places,
giving the children
their happy faces.
Then as the white snow
melts from the ground
springtime is given
its time around.
Sprouting are rosebuds
and tree leaves to grow
that were once sleeping
beneath the white snow.
Spring unto summer
brings flowers to bloom,
some found delaying
waiting for June.

The Midnight Air

A breeze blows in
and spring is here
when the nighttime
shows sincere.
The midnight air
is that of dreams
as running waters
midnight streams.
The scenes of life
come with a page
the midnight air
found center stage.
A book of time
with words of peace
the midnight air
with sweet release.
Tomorrows dreams
will have a prayer
through God above
and the midnight air.

Kin Of The Heart

Ones connected souls
are often not apparent,
for kin of the heart are
so often transparent.
Many times people are
found disconnected
from so many loved ones
that now needs corrected.
Kin of the heart are
sometimes not so clear,
as many miles might not
seem so sincere.
Yet many kindred
are not blood the same,
for they’ve been connected
through life to attain.
God gave the passageways
to now and then,
to ones not of blood,
but still found as kin.
Those of a distance
that time spreads apart
are still loved the same
as kin of the heart.

Translucent Dreams

Time just like windows
will sometimes be scenes
found as a moment
of translucent dreams.
Clear as a window
you might see through
translucent dreams
might have a clear hue.
Not seeing the clouds
that form and create,
translucent dreams
can depreciate.
Find what that’s worthy
of patience and time
losing translucent
that windows define.
Look through the windows
and see what that’s there
beyond the translucent
dreams full of air.
Seen through the windows
new life can become
not so translucent,
but a bright shining sun.

What If

Sometimes wondering
what if someday
or what if something
sometime some way
can become somewhat
what if a while
with but what if
time is a mile.
What if a persons
what if is seen
what if a monster
comes in a dream?
Scenes finding what if
can be what a way
and what if turnstile
changes each day.
Many times what if
is just but a while
down what if worry
a long what if mile.
So let not your what if
to take full control,
for what if’s not happened
to take on its toll.

Haiku
for Apr 29,  2016

With salt and pepper
we can change the taste of things,
but they’re still the same.

Less of obstructions
can be less of our lessons
of which we needed.

Dreams we remember
might become real if wanted,
be very careful.

Legions of heartaches
can become your life’s baggage
preventing true love.

Hanging on to things,
could be a growing problem
that needs to release.

Today is a gift
as a blessing from Heaven
maybe seen wrongly.

Two loving puppies
have a true undying love
that needs no reason.

The stage is ready
for your footsteps upon it,
but are you ready?

A friendless flower
will still show us its blossom,
while wanting a friend.

Countless perception
finds endless supply of thoughts,
either right or wrong.

As a mission to Mars
many flowers may have bloomed
striving for the stars.

A white cloud of time
could become a storm to see
that rains on your life.

Peace is a moment
that finds its way in our lives
when anger is ceased.

Belief in a dream
gives hope for it to come true,
but don’t hold your breath.

Circumstances seen
become so many view points
that might not be right.

Yesterdays shadows
needs to stay where they belong,
for today is here.

Painting a portrait
finds perception as the art
of all that’s within.

When looking both ways
you might miss what’s before you
and crash into life.

Decisions in life
often come as an Earthquake
that shake you apart.

Hope is from Jesus
and life is a true blessing
from Lord God above.

Portholes we look through
often show some rocky shores,
but peace can be found.

Sometimes illusions
are the views seen from wanting
what we do not need.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It looks as though April only has a week left
and then we shall welcome May.  Although it
is still a bit on the coolish side.  We had about
2 days last week with 70 F degrees,  but now
it’s back to the upper 40’s for the rest of the
week including yesterday and today and yes
the nights are in the lower to upper 20’s for
the rest of the week.  By next weekend or so
the nights should be more in the lower 30’s and
the days in the lower to mid 50’s.  Spring is
still having a hard time grabbing hold hehehe.
The wind is blowing vigorously today.  The
tarp that we have over our picnic table and
chairs is flapping making a lot of noise,  but
it’s still holding tight hehehe.  This passed
week was great.  We had a visit from Judy’s
daughters and the grand kids Thursday and
I took the grand kids out in the field for a
little nature hike and of course Benny and
Rocky joined in.  We walked down to the
river and I took a few pictures of them as
well as many of us there and to 🙂  Yep,  it
was a beautiful sunny day.  The youngest
grandson Christian stayed  with us from
Thursday to Saturday.  We all stayed up
late watching Youtube gaming videos and
having a good laugh.  Judy took Christian
with her when she headed off for Craft
Night at her sister’s house and Christians
mom took him home from there when she
was done with her craft.  They made things
with mason jars or should I say most of
them did.  Some used what they had,  but
they had a good time.  Judy made three
decorative jars from mason jars.  They
came out pretty nice.  Judy got home late
last night and we had a late dinner and
then watched programs that I recorded
while she was gone.  My collarbone is
still hurting,  but the pain has eased a bit,
or I’m just getting used to the pain LOL.
In either case,  I’m alive,  just not doing
no jumping jacks or anything hehehe 😉
Judy’s going to Bangor with her sister
Dena Tuesday.  Dena has one doctors
appointment early Tuesday and another
early Wednesday and Dena didn’t want
to go alone and they won’t be coming
back till Wednesday.  So it’ll be me and
the boys again hanging together.  I’ll miss
Judy and I’m positive the boys will.  If
I know Benny and I do,  he’ll be barking
at everything that he thinks just might
be Judy coming home,  which will also
drive me batty,  but I’ll survive hehehe.
I’ll try to keep them entertained as much
as I am able.  If Tuesday is nice,  which
it’s supposed to be aside from being in
the upper 40’s I might take them out for
a little nature walk in the field.  Hehehe
that’s if my health will allow me.  So
what else is there?  Oh yea,  last Tuesday
Judy and I took the boys out for a little
field trip and we got a lot of pictures and
a few videos that came out pretty good.
Yes,  the snow has finally all melted and
allowed the Earth to display the ground
that was underneath all of that white
stuff LOL.  There’s a few trees attempting
to start budding,  but with our bouncing
back and forth warm to freezing weather
it’s still a hit and miss hehehe.  Tonight’s
low is supposed to be 25 F and that is
the night forecast for most of this week,
with some forecasted at 21 F hehehe.
But yet,  this is spring or at least a good
try hehehe.  Maybe in May it will begin
to be more springish,  but then it’ll be
too warm for me and I’ll have to turn on
our portable air conditioner LOL.  That
seems to be a pattern for me hehehehe.
Rocky came and sat down right beside
me just now and I felt his eyes looking
up at me.  I looked down and he was
cocking his head sideways looking at me
with his little doggy smile.  I petted him
and now he’s laid down.  LOL it’s hard
to write when you’re being stared at 🙂
LOL I thought I would see how he likes
it and so I just stared at him while he’s
lying there in his bed.  LOL I guess he
couldn’t sense that I was staring at him.
He just slept on.  OH well,  enough of
that and back to my journal.  Oh yea,
the Houlton Farms Dairy opened up a
few weeks ago,  so when Judy and I
have some money,  we’re going to get
us some ice cream yummy yum hehehe.
It’s where we make a special trip to
every year to get our favorites in the
ice cream world LOL.  My favorite is
the Vanilla Shake A Sundae with hot
fudge and one of  Judy’s favorites is
the Banana Awful Awful.   Hehehe
it sounds awful,  but it’s awful good
she says LOL.  Yes,  life up here in
this wintery world of Maine is place
of beauty.  There is much to see and
tons for me to take pictures of and also
write about.  I do get tired of being so
far away from family and friends and
I wish I had some friends up here that
I could spend time with,  but it’s not
all bad.  Maybe one day I’ll make a
friend that will also play guitar and
we can jam together.  That would be
great,  but until that day happens,  I’ll
keep on keeping on as I have.  God
has blessed me with a most wonderful
family up here and many friends that
might be far away,  but I can still talk
to them.  I am so thankful for being
able to share my thoughts with you
and hopefully brighten up your day.
God gave me this ability to write not
to keep to myself,  but to try and help
others to find Him and see the joy in
life that they had never been aware
of.  So,  I thank You God for all that
You have done for me and given me.
I guess it’s time now for me to begin
my little quest back through all that
I’ve written here to see if I can find
a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem
So,  it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may
have stumbled upon a decent title just
a few lines back and now the chore
of trying to write something that makes
any sense using it hehehe.  Here goes.

Share My Thoughts

A single thought
I thought to say
might be a thought
the best today.
I share my thoughts
as time moves on
before my thoughts
are there and gone.
For ones thinking
thoughts acquired
might be goodness
times transpired.
Yet if no thought
finds its place
it might then weave
a frowning face.
So as my thinking
finds its cost
I find the good
and share my thoughts.

LOL so there ya go.  I thought I would share
my thoughts in a poem about sharing my, well
you know,  thoughts,  hehehe.  I hope it makes
sense to you 🙂  I won’t give my interpretation
of it.  You find your own 🙂  What it means to
me,  might not be the same as what it means to
you.  Sort of like a church sermon.  Thousands
can hear it,  but each person hears it differently
and gets their own message.  The message that
was meant for them.  Anyways,  I wonder if I
forgot to tell you anything other than the usual?
Oh yea,  my dad passed away April 22 2001
and that day is still burned into my brain,  but
I always know that he is with me everywhere
I go and still watching me as I write my poems
and journals.  He used to come in my room
and rest his hand on my shoulder as he waited
for me to finish.  He always called my journals
my sermons and he would take them to church
with him to use to teach his class.  Anyways,
I love ya dad and I know I’ll be with you when
my time in this old worn out body is done 🙂
Death is not the end,  but the beginning of life
in an everlasting realm.  Heaven awaits me 🙂
LOL I’m sure dad’s saying,  you ain’t done
doing what God has for ya to do yet,  so you
gotta few more years son.  Yep,  so until I’m
done here,  you’re stuck with me Judy LOL.
I wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂  My life
is a blessing as I unwrap a new mystery as
each day comes to pass.  OK,  so I guess
I need to put on the brakes here before I get
totally back in Rambles Ville hehehe.   Now
I believe it’s time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and that
is I wrote some more poems and haiku,
but actually I wrote all of these poems last
week LOL.  They’re the extras that I didn’t
put in last weeks journal.  Though I did
write 22 haiku yesterday 🙂  Actually I sort
of went overboard and wrote four extras so
ya got 26 haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  So,  with that said and done I
reckon it’s time for me to begin searching
for that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most joyful weekend,
or whatever’s left of it and a truly blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Now, where’s that ornery
off switch hiding this week?  Hmm,  I spy
with my 1 good eye a bit of movement from
behind my orange juice glass.  Aha I think
I see you.  If you would get some skin lotion
and quit scratching I might not of seen ya.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22+4 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Within A Way

Through times of trouble
day after day
sometimes might double
within a way.
Mirrors reflecting
what all we’ve done
seeming dissecting
bullets and gun.
Through scenes of beauty
a painters quest
the Earth is our duty
to save and be blessed.
For then within a way
so many will lie
while they display
how so many die.
The Earth needs our voices
to try hard to save
and not let our choices
to put it in the grave.
So we should pull together
and do what that’s right
within a way forever
to save day and night.
Not allowing greediness
to destroy every day
and then leaving shadows
of life within a way.
Take heed with God now
and gather your strength
to helps ones to learn how
to not become extinct.

The Life Of Dreams

Ventured are heartbeats
so timeless to sway
as dreams encounter
a wonderful way.
The life of a dream is
something to see
sometimes a space voyage
on through history.
The advantage of dreamland
is it can be sewn
into a wonderful
place you have known.
A place you have been to
so Heavenly fine
found in a dream world
that wonderful time.
My wife and I surely
can see the extremes
the best times of passed days
in the life of dreams.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

Enraged

With only a second
ones can explode
being enraged
with all that’s bestowed.
Minutes can gather
a dynamite trail
being enraged
with every detail.
Then as your anger
takes firm control
moments are counted
taking their toll.
For as a second
turns into hours
being enraged
makes many so sour.
Not seeing truly
the time that is there
many enraged
will say they don’t care.
But for a moment
if some would just listen
then those enraged
would see what they’re missin.
Life in a bubble
with just others view
makes ones enraged
while not seeing true.
Truth of the matter
is many never see,
because they’re depending on
false publicity.

Found Inside

A book of a lifelong
counted through years
might have some pages
filled with some tears.
Found inside lifelong
now might seem great,
but as the years mount
some just can’t wait.
Determining statures
becomes such a fright
when found inside of them
there is no light.
The book of a lifelong
might become tainted
if the persons actions
are falsely painted.
The looks of the outside
often do not compare
to what that the inside
shows au contraire.
So if someone’s actions
don’t seem truth applied
look a bit closer to
what’s found inside.

Rebooted Scenes

As spring comes with wonders
and life shows its face
rebooted scenes then
come and replace.
The snow that was once there
with winter’s delight,
rebooted scenes bring
change day and night.
Scenes found exploding
with colorful stance
rebooted scenes with
their own song and dance.
Seeming as paintings then
time becomes grand
with rebooted scenes
all over the land.
Then some photographers
will come and explore
those rebooted scenes
they totally adore.
One by one photographs
taken in stride
those rebooted scenes
throughout the countryside.
Each scene so magically
brings forth a sight
as rebooted scenes
are found day and night.

A Shadowy Footprint

A shadow’s own footprint
is that of what’s there
as something or someone
is then found somewhere.
An echo or memory
are a shadow’s details,
often as a turnstile
where darkness prevails.
A shadowy footprint
is not without cause
for it needs reason
to show its applause.
So if you are seeing
a shadowy scene
search then to find out
what’s making it seen.
A shadowy footprint
with nothing to boast,
might be none other
than maybe a ghost.

Distorted

Signs of times
distorted views
find the minds
of ill gotten news.
Distorted words
so many say
when they’re amidst
an ill-gotten way.
Themes of means
are often found
with ones moments
up and down.
Times distorted
thereunto
a liars mind
will talk to you.
Learn to discern
truth and fiction
through some times
of contradiction.
For what are
so many distorted
about the lies
that ones reported.
Yet don’t forget
we are mankind
distorted yes
from time to time.
Look for mistook
of timeless ways
seeming distorted
but brighter days.
Often it’s us
with what we choose
distorted facts
to win or lose.
So now my friends
do not fall prey
to distorted words
that many say.

Underneath The Sky

Hearts are connecting,
time becomes waves,
lifetimes are forming
with wonderful ways.
Underneath the sky
holds chances to see
new days from Lord God
given for free.
Change of perception
rises from dust
underneath the sky
with life so robust.
Hearts are found beating
finding what’s true
while time keeps ticking
underneath skies of blue.
Windows of mercy
come from God on high
while showering blessings
underneath the sky.

Memories Winding Road

A footstep with years time
becomes time forgotten
memories of the good times
and those that were rotten.
A path laid in times quest
turns into mystery
of memories winding road
that comes from history.
A sequential road made
from what we’ve been through
records all our memories
from here thereunto.
Time turns to pebbles
as sand in a  glass
made into a time piece
to show time to pass.
Life is then a journey
sometimes a heavy load
down the moments pathway
memories winding road.

Prism Dreams

In a lights refraction
I see such details
as a sea worthy vessel
with tall mast and sails.
This is now but only
a dream of pure time,
found within a prism
that I find divine.
A prism dream moment
that my eyes surely see,
inside my inner sight
of times history.
A prism sort refraction
that seems crystallized,
found as my passed days
that I had memorized.
The facts of the moments
are as Heaven gleams,
the times I remember
in my prism dreams.

Haiku
for Apr 23,  2016

Time’s but a second
added onto some others
creating each day.

The life of silence
only hears what can be seen
as mimes in a park.

Some doors of springtime
display words within flowers
that pictures portray.

Many view a day
as but only a moment,
while others see life.

The essence of love
finds its way within heartbeats
God puts together.

A rose is a rose
even with different blooms
and same goes for us.

Truth is a path
that many will let to sway
when they are questioned.

Within a doorway
you might see a few choices
that tempt you so wrong.

When walking alone
you might feel someone’s presence,
an angel unseen.

Without God’s mercy
we could never see Heaven,
for we have all sinned.

Pages of a book
often do not coincide
with the front cover.

Mistreating others
will surely bounce back on us,
so take heed your stride.

With a breath of air
comes a new day to be seen
with past remembered.

A turtles venture
might be slow in the making,
but he will get there.

Birds of a flight
find their pathways connected
bound by their nature.

When churning butter
it at first will seem easy,
but then it will not.

Beyond horizons
holds mysteries yet to find
in your imagination.

A moment of thought
can either destroy today
or make it better.

Fields full of daisies
look like tiny sunflowers
that beckon our sight.

After a rainstorm
you might see a bright rainbow,
but no pot of gold.

Glistening springtime
gives forth many fragrant sights
as flowers will bloom.

Yesterdays threshold
might not be good for today,
for you may have changed.

Within a dark room
there holds many mysteries
that often strike fear.

Sometimes our own minds
will cause our own destruction,
before time’s begun.

Last is a good place
when first is in the fire
and needs a rescue.

Many weaknesses
are actually our strengths
in another light.

A Summer’s Breeze

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Another week has passed by and it’s looking
more and more like springtime around here 🙂
It’s 70 F right now at 4:23 PM.  I can deal
with that.  It’s when it begins getting warmer
that I’ve gotta turn on our portable AC.  Yep,
I can handle cold much better than I can the
heat.  None the less,  we’ll survive.  I have our
window opened in here.  It had gotten to 77 F
degrees in here and that’s a bit too warm for me.
I still don’t see any leaves on the trees,  but it
won’t be long.  Tomorrow’s high is supposed
to be around 52 F or so.  The temperature
still seems to be bouncing up and down LOL.
We’ve still got some freezing temperatures
in the nights which are delaying any leaves
to be seen in the trees.  But yet still in time
the weather should make up its mind,  I hope.
Judy’s over at her desk rewriting her recipes
onto 3×5 cards so she can put them into her
new recipe box.  That’s gonna keep her busy
for quite a while I presume hehehe.  She’s
gotten tons of recipes from the internet and
other places.  We love to eat 😛 and Judy
is always searching for a new recipe that
she can try out that looks like something we
might like.  Next topic 🙂  Well,  we’ve got a
blue sky today and I don’t see a cloud in it.
On another note,  Benny and Rocky were
in a feisty mood this morning.  They had a
visit from our neighbors Chihuahua and
Benny had a blast.  Rocky wasn’t interested
in playing with him.  Benny though is always
looking to see him.  LOL When Benny was
coming in,  that little Chihuahua wasn’t far
behind.  He wanted to come in with them 🙂
I shut the door and he started barking at
me saying let me in LOL.  I said go home,
I’m sure your owners are wondering where
you are.  Of course I’m fairly sure they are
aware that he likes to play with Benny 🙂
It’s been raining oft and on,  but it seems
we’ve gotta a little bit of a reprieve from it
for the last few days.  There have been a
few floods in the lower lying areas due to
the ice and snow melting along with the
rain.  We’re in a high elevation and don’t
have those problems.  Although that does
tend to cause other problems,  like when
it was 34 F in Houlton in the early morning
hours of Wednesday when I was carrying
out the trash,  unbeknown to me it was a
bit colder here liken unto 24 F degrees
and that put a glaze of ice upon our steps
that when I stepped upon them my feet
flew out from under me and I took a dive
down the steps landing on the trash that
I had been carrying at the bottom of the
steps.  I am still sore.  I think I fractured
my collarbone,  but can’t do nothing about
it right now.  No pain meds work on me,
being due to my funky immune system 🙂
Going to the emergency room would only
end up costing us without them doing a
thing other than prescribing something of
which will not work on me.  I’ve been that
route too many times already hehehehe 🙂
A fracture needs to heal on its own if in
fact it is and it’s not just the leftovers from
an old man falling down the steps,  aches.
LOL in any case,  I’m fairly sure I will live,
darn it hehehe.  It does get tiring with my
whole body always aching.  I’ve acquired
more aches and pains up here due to the
freaking ice and all than I have had in all
my years LOL.  But I still love the views
of the snowflakes falling and painting the
distant scenes with magnificent beauty
as well as the other sights to see through
the seasons of spring,  summer and fall.
Yet,  when that first snowflake falls and
is joined slowly by others it’s as if angels
all floating down from Heaven to paint
the scenes horizon.  Then as it begins to
fall more it looks like cotton candy as it
falls from the sky as everything is covered
in white.  Yep,  I do love the snow,  but
I hate the ice LOL.  Of course icicles are
OK.  They’re pretty as they’re hanging as
Christmas ornaments.  I know,  many of
you think I’m nuts,  well so be it.  These
things help me to enjoy life.  Sights that
God has sent as many blessings.  Though
we might at times find them burdensome,
but a moment they are beautiful and that’s
what we should see.  Let The Light of God
and all that He has given us to shine and
make you smile.  A summer’s breeze can
turn a day of pain into a moments blessing.
When it rains,  think of the lives that it is
restoring and the refreshing scent that
it puts into the air.  Don’t let the things
that God provides to become just burdens
to you.  Look for the blessings,  for even
as lightning streaks across the sky it gives
life to our air and then the thunder that
follows speaks of its wonders.  So now
the next time you see God’s beauty,  be
thankful.  So now I reckon it’s time for me
to be taking my little trip back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can
find a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem.
An so it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I do  believe I
may have stumbled upon a decent title
just a few lines back.  Now I’ve gotta
see if I can do anything with it hehehe.
Here goes nothing,,,,, hehehe Maybe.

A Summer’s Breeze

A scene so sweet
and essence so fine
a summer’s breeze
is now on my mind.
That certain page
in books of peace
a summer’s breeze
gives us release.
Within the mornings
and afternoons
a summer’s breeze
is joined by loons.
The sounds they make
while singing true
a summer’s breeze
will join in too.
While rain might fall
and cool the air
a summer’s breeze
it can’t compare.

There ya go.  Just a little poem about a
summer’s breeze.  Yep,  when there’s a
nice summer’s breeze,  the day seems to
be more inviting as it introduces a new
perspective on life.  I love to watch the
trees as they sway in the breeze as the
sound turns into a magical moment that
can put me in a trance.  I can still recall
the nights with me and my Pawpaw out
on Lake Tawakani listening to the night
as water would lap against the boat and
a gentle breeze would blow.  I miss those
days.  I’m sure they will be rekindled as
my time in this old decrepit body is done
and I find my way through Heaven’s gate,
I’m sure my Pawpaw has a special fishing
hole picked out for him and I and maybe
even my dad will join in.  We can just sit
and float on those Heavenly waters and
fish while enjoying Heaven’s sunrise as
it peers over the horizon.  Well it seems
I almost got stuck in rambles ville agin
didn’t I LOL?  I guess it’s time for me
to be telling you what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yep, 10 more
poems,  but once again I went a little
over 10 and wrote 10 extra,  but I
think I might just try to hold off on my
writing this week and post those extra
10 next Sunday hehehe.  Sound good
to you?  Oh yea I also wrote 22 more
haiku,  but accidentally wrote 1 extra
so you’ve got 23 to keep ya busy LOL.
So now I reckon it’s time for me to
begin my search for that not so great
at hiding off switch,  but not before I
wish you a most wonderful weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a blessed
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Now,  where is that
silly off switch hiding this week????
Hmm,  is that thing trying to hide in
Rocky’s hair???LOL Rocky almost
shook him out.  He’ll have to learn
how to do some rodeo riding before
trying that agin hehehe.  Anyways,
gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

Behind A Face

A hidden word,
a hidden thought
behind a face
might be a lot.
A moments time,
a moments place
might be found
behind a face.
Certain struggles,
certain choices,
behind a face
might be some voices.
A life of fear,
A life of hate,
behind a face
you might relate.
Some have problems
wished to hide
behind a face
to coincide.

Time’s Recorded

Lost in time frames,
journeys made.
Times recorded,
some that stayed.
Some seem longer
than they were.
Times recorded
things concur.
Things we’ve been through,
now’s displayed
with us sometimes
a crusade.
Battles counted,
many lost,
times recorded
all the costs.
Yet some moments
times recorded
gave us lessons
times rewarded.

The Story Told

Revealing insight
said and done
a sentence makes up
what’s begun.
A little story
now and then
what that sometimes
does begin.
Minutes gather
scenes to find
stories written
in the mind.
Many doorways
front and center
become stories
that we enter.
Then remembered
now to old
what we’ve found
the story told.

Tomorrow’s Essence

The past to the present
can look a bit pale
when tomorrow’s essence
most surely sets sail.
Our yesterdays views
will often mislead
when we look at right now
and see but a weed.
Tomorrow’s essence
can twist and turn
with what that right now
does surely discern.
The true reality
of what that’s tomorrow
might be filled with
joy and sorrow.
Yet what you see now
might not be clear
tomorrow’s essence
that’s not here.

Countless Dreams

Wanted wished for
countless dreams,
some as valleys,
some as streams.
Found in slumber
dreams reveal
timeless portions
facts conceal.
Even daydreams
journey on
things with hopeful
dusk to dawn.
Countless dreams
of our desire
is often found
as our barbwire.
Sought not thought
what could not be
countless dreams
reality.
Then the moments
come awake
showing what that
was mistake.
Countless dreams
are sometimes best
left a dream
to not possess.

Doors Unopened

Pathways, byways
journeys through
doors unopened
never do.
Dusty highways
left in time
might not see
the best design.
Doors unopened
left to rust
often finds ones
with much dust.
In a bubble
not revealing,
too protected,
never feeling.
For the lessons
you’ve not learned
doors unopened
will have burned.

A Cloudy Day Of Spring

Sunshine with a journey
finds springtime with peace.
A cloudy day of hopeful
with a springtime release.
Birds singing sweetly
in the trees here and there
on a cloudy day of spring
with God’s beauty everywhere.
The sights are so magical
as scenes come alive
showing all the beauty
through winter did survive.
A cloudy day of spring
becomes such a phase
displayed as a dream world
beneath the suns rays.
Each portion of the day
is enhanced as birds sing
displaying all the beauty
a cloudy day of spring.

Windows Of The Mind

Within  but a mindful
a story is written
found in the windows
a thought bug has bitten.
Deep down within us
as our minds interweave
the windows of the mind
find times to conceive.
Found as perception,
yet often not explored
the windows of the mind
seek a moments reward.
Time finds its patterns
as the minutes tick by
while many will wonder
and ask how and why.
Certain things thought of
are not in their time,
but they might still live on
in windows of the mind.

Starlight Fantasy

Drifting through the cosmos
as the stars fly right on by
I have this wondrous fantasy
up high beyond the sky.
Far beyond the Milky Way
to places never known,
I have this starlight fantasy
and I am not alone.
My wife is right here with me
as we travel through the stars
holding hands together
as we wave goodbye to Mars.
Each moment is breathtaking
as it seems to last forever
holding hands through starlight
while enjoying it together.
The glimmers of a new world
our eyes can surely see
as we travel through the twilight
in our starlight fantasy.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce <3

Within Confusion

The middle of a moment
might seem like an illusion
while a sleepless night might show
that you’re within confusion.
Bloodshot eyes of hours
display what time’s bestowing
found within confusion
what you are now not knowing.
Seconds seem as journeys
counted one by one,
found within confusion
what sleepless has begun.
Thinking becomes blurry
and eyes are of the same,
when within confusion
and thoughts you can’t attain.
Then a moments slumber
will give you a conclusion
that your thoughts in time
were just within confusion.

Haiku
for Apr 14,  2016

With uneasy thoughts
comes doorways halfway opened
fearing the unknown.

Change is a sight
found within and outwardly
that ones try to hide.

Expression of scent
is a flower blooming in spring
attracting some bees.

A hidden turnstile
might illuminate a choice
within the darkness.

Parts of perception
are what many will perceive
in the wrong moment.

Flowers of springtime
give the day its aroma
along with beauty.

Beastly are mornings
that begin with turbulence
within our choices.

Before this moment
there was another moment
that was just waiting.

River rocks so wet
withstand the time of struggles,
as they mark the path.

Waves of an ocean
speak loudly upon the shore
as they tell stories.

Seconds are minutes
hidden within the value
of our patience.

Love is a blessing
that many take for granted
and lose it through time.

Beyond what we see
holds an imagination
found within our thoughts.

Cherishing springtime
allows its beauty to grow
and become much more.

Allowing liars
to continue with their ways
is not helping them.

Winter meets springtime
and says hello and goodbye
while snow melts away.

Loneliness will grow
if fear for your own shadow
prevents you from life.

Our own distinction
is tucked within our lifestyles
and how we unite.

Times adversity
teaches lessons through karma
with what’s mirrored back.

Hillsides with flowers
display pictures of beauty
that springtime displays.

Knowledge of a wrong
and not changing the pathway
will find destruction.

As a fire burns
it gives the strength from itself
to make energy.

A road to nowhere
actually goes somewhere
that we don’t perceive.

Entertaining To You

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
This is a special 24 poem edition

The sun is shining brightly today,  but it’s
still a bit on the cool side for spring LOL.
This morning it was about 12 F degrees.
I was finally able to order us some heating
oil Monday and we got it Thursday but our
furnace isn’t working.  I’m guessing that
we may not of completely ran out fuel
when it quit a month ago.  The furnace
may have just quit working LOL.  But,
now we have 50 gallons of heating oil for
sure,  but our landlord has been unable
to get our furnace operating again.  He
got a hold of a furnace repairman,  but
he never showed up Friday or Saturday.
Our water froze last Saturday night,  but
I was able to get it thawed by opening
up all of the water faucets to release the
pressure.  The water would of frozen
again Sunday night because once again
it got down to 8 F degrees,  but I left the
water running slightly and that kept it
from freezing.  Now us in the bathroom,
that’s another story LOL,  Brrrrrrrrrr.
That toilet gets mighty cold when there
ain’t no heat.  We have a few portable
radiator heaters,  but we only use them
in the PC room where I am now and
our bedroom.  The rest of the house can
freeze.  It’s not worth a 200+ dollar light
bill LOL.  So we’re hoping that the guy
makes it maybe tomorrow to get it fixed.
Other than that,  things are pretty well.
Benny and Rocky are still being,  well 🙂
Benny and Rocky hehehe.  They keep
each other entertained LOL.  Though
they do love for us to get in the middle
of it with them.  They love attention 🙂
Our little homestead is filled with many
different forms of entertainment hehehe.
It might not be entertaining to you,  but
it keeps us happy.  Judy is doing well.
We went shopping for knickknacks for her
at the Dollar Tree last Monday.  Yep,
loaded up with knickknacks for her to do
creating on craft night at her sister’s
house.  The 3rd Saturday of every month
her and the rest of the girls get together
and have craft night over at Judy’s twin
sister’s house.  On those nights it’s a
guys night with me and the boys hehehe.
Yep Benny and Rocky hang out with
dear old daddy LOL.  I will often play
with them either inside or outside in the
field 🙂  That’s if of course I am able to.
Here lately my feet have been aching
and too much pain to run with them in
the field,  but they’re hurting a little less
now,  so field trip here we come hehehe.
Maybe tomorrow.  It’d be a bit too late
to go today.  Today is beginning to look
like spring sort of.  It’s 39 F degrees and
that’s spring for up here hehehe.  It’s
supposed to be a little warmer tomorrow.
Maybe in the lower 40’s 🙂  The rest of
the week looks as though it might even
get up to the upper 40’s and lower 50’s 🙂
Of course most of the nights will still be
below freezing LOL.  Still,  that’s a sure
sign that springtime is here.  The snow
is melting away. There’s still some in
places where the sun don’t shine,  but for
the most part it has diminished greatly.
I think the boys are missing it though 🙂
They both love to play in the snow,  a lot.
I’ve spent quite a bit of time chatting with
my friends on Facebook.  Sometimes it
gets stressful though,  being so many
want to chat with me LOL.  What can
I say,  I love people and if I can bring
a smile to them and help their day to be
much better,  then that is what I will do.
I do though have to cease time to time,
being I want to spend time with Judy
and the boys.  Judy and I have a lot of
favorite TV programs that we love to
watch together.  She has begun writing
poetry and stories again.  I like to see
her putting her gift to work.  That is
how we found each other.  We are both
writers 🙂  I can’t wait to get her new
book.  It should be published in the next
week or so.  It though will be only for
adults for it is rated R,  but I loved it
as I proofread it for her.  So,  what else
is going on around The Pearce’s Place?
Well,  to be honest,  not much hehehe.
We live a very quiet lifestyle aside from
2 dogs getting excited from time to time
and making racket hehehe.  Judy fixed
me some hot cocoa just a minute ago 🙂
Mmmmm good.  I had to wait for it to
cool a bit though, lest I burn my tonsils 🙂
I do have some sad news from Tuesday.
My grandmother passed away.  Her
funeral was Thursday.  It was a grave
side service.  Unfortunately I could not
be there due to my health issues and of
course finances.  My daughter offered
to pay my way,  but it would of been a
race to get there and would of cost me
over a 1000 dollars to be there on a next
day flight.  Plus I would of had to have
someone pick me up at the airport being
I haven’t driven there in over 20 years.
I’m sure it has changed a ton since I’ve
been to DFW and a 1 eyed guy has no
business driving there anyways.  It’s OK,
my grandmother was no longer in that
body.  It was surely just a shell,  for her
spirit had gone from it and is now up in
Heaven with her husband my Pawpaw.
Grandmother was 108 years old when
she passed.  Keep my mom and sister
Peggy as well as the rest of the family in
your prayers.  I’m sure my mom is at
peace with her moms passing because
both her and I knew that Grandmother
was not happy.  She had always been a
hard worker.  She never cooked for one
person.  Hehehe she always cooked for
an army whether there were 2 people
or 20.  She and Pawpaw also had their
own garden of which they never went
to the grocery store other than to buy
something they could not grow like
flour and sugar or even eggs.  I had a
few chickens,  but not near enough to
suffice her cooking LOL.  Anyways
Grandmother is now watching over us
as Judy and I continue our lives up here
in this 6 month winter wonder land 🙂
Now I believe I have rambled quite
enough and I need to now take my little
quest back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find a good word
or phrase that I can use for the title
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.  Ok so just a
few lines down from the beginning it
looks like I may have found a decent
title,  but now I’ve gotta see if I can
put any words together that make any
sense using it LOL.  Here goes……

Entertaining To You

What you might find exciting then
might not be as to others
for what so many count as boring
is fun with our own brothers.
Then within a minutes time
what’s entertaining to you
might be but just a boring time
that others will go through.
The season winter in its frame
might make you feel real low,
but it might be real entertaining
to ones that love the snow.
Our personalities and desires
often find conflicts
of what’s entertaining to you and me
and what our life depicts.
The turnstiles of so many views
are swinging back and forth
discerning what that’s good and bad
to find within their course.
Yet what’s boring to another
might be entertaining to you
as we each live our uniqueness
in what all we do.

OK so there ya go 🙂  I hope that came out
making at least a little bit of sense to you 🙂
It’s been a weird week for me these passed
few days.  LOL I actually wrote 23 poems
and then one on request from a friend for
me to write him a poem about him using his
name LOL.  Sheesh my brain went wacky 🙂
His name is long. He lives in Accra, Ghana.
He’s been a friend of mine for a long time.
I may not put them all in,  but I’ll decide
that in a moment,  but first I’ve gotta make
sure I have not forgotten anything hehehe.
Well it’s 37 F degrees now at 6:30 PM and
it looks like it might be going down more.
It’s supposed to be 16 F degrees by early
Monday morning.  Still not too bad LOL.
So I reckon it’s time to tell you what I tell
you almost every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku,  but as I said
I sort of over did it on the poems hehehe.
Yeppers I wrote 24 poems with 2 of them
being sort of Christmassy and 1 being to
a real good friend of mine.  I also wrote
once again 22 haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  When I told Judy I was
thinking of posting all of the poems,  she
said just tell them that this is a special
edition LOL.  And so I will post all of
the poems.  Talk about tons to read LOL.
Ok so now I believe it’s time for me to
be searching for that confounded off
switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful weekend or whatever’s left
of it and a truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Now,  where is that confounded
off switch hiding this week?   Searching
high and low,  AHA,  I see you ya little
varmint.  Trying to hide behind my cup
of hot chocolate might have worked if
I wasn’t still drinking it ya silly thing 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S.  I also wrote a poem to my Judy as
well as a poem about my Grandmother
titled Farewell And Hello 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+14 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Lunar Scenery

Night brings its fancy
to display in the skies
that many dreamers
see as a true prize.
True lunar scenery
finds ways to become
the echoes of nighttime
as a hearts beating drum.
Displayed with darkness
as stars twinkle light
the scenery becomes
the prize of the night.
Then as the moonlight
comes shining on down
the lunar scenery
is seen all around.
Some as the shadows
that frolic and play
in lunar scenery
before break of day.
Then as the Earth turns
it displays so bright
the lunar scenery
with the end of the night.

That Season So Fine

November brings us
that December time
found within Christmas
that season so fine.
Each brand new snowflake
that falls down to Earth
reminds me of Jesus
and His wondrous birth.
That season of winter
that comes in with snow
and then some magic
from Christmas to show.
Yes that great season
has blessings in time
that come from Christmas
that season so fine.
Then as the days move
and time ticks away
that season so fine
shows that wondrous array.
Snowflakes in pictures
that ones memorize
often are falling
from those Christmas skies.
Then as the children
awaken to see,
they might find magic
up under their tree.
Gifts from old Santa
that he left to find
Christmas with joyful
that season so fine.

Effervescent Eyes

This one with such passion
has true love to grow
as time is found ticking
with more that I know.
Her effervescent eyes
that twinkle as they do
are soft brown and wondrous
with love that’s so true.
Days are with journeys
as a God given prize
effervescent moments
with effervescent eyes.
The light of the world finds
her and I together,
her effervescent eyes
forever and ever.
Echoes of our heartbeats
are that of a dream
her effervescent eyes
and me down a stream.
Floating down a river
as it twist and it turns
those effervescent moments
with love filled concerns.
Her effervescent eyes
of a soft brown array
fill me with passion
we share every day.

New Beginnings

Time is gathered,
hours are cast
new beginnings
found from the past.
Flowers of springtime
after the snow
bring new beginnings
to come all aglow.
Seasons of wonder
found in our thoughts
display the patterns
time frames are tossed.
Brand new beginnings
give way to styles
within a giggle
and then some of smiles.
Time is now showing
days with their endings
displaying chances
for new beginnings

Themes Of Miles

Counted are minutes,
counted are styles.
Counted are oceans
with themes of miles
Nautical value
with waves coming in
themes of miles
show echoes begin.
Remembered moments
counted so true
blessings so wondrous
found in my view.
Themes of miles
united arrays
with my grandparents
those wonderful days.
Time becomes patterns
as silhouettes glow
themes of miles
from a long time ago.
Now they are memories
Heavenly laid
themes of miles
that ticking time made.
Found as the flavors
of love so divine
themes of miles
are a wonderful time.

Scattering Dewdrops

Springtime awakens
with raindrops to fall
then found by morning
some moisture’s over all.
Scattering dewdrops
here thereabouts
springtime’s beginnings
are with little sprouts.
Green grass then growing
with flowers divine
scattering dewdrops
shows that it’s springtime.
The stage is in place
for the season to flow
scattering dewdrops
for things which to grow.
Birds will be chirping
with sounds of dream
and then you might hear
a quick flowing stream.
The wondrous sounds
that springtime inlays
is scattering dewdrops
for much better days.
Then as the season
grabs hold so to shine
scattering dewdrops
will pour just like wine.

Shadows Of Gray

Within the darkness
a shadow can be
seen as a person
or maybe a tree.
Fear might engulf you
as you look around
seeing the shadows
without any sound.
Some shadows maybe
might just be there
seen as a gray thing
you can’t compare.
Yet in the darkness
time might display
only your fearful
of shadows of gray.
Peaceful yet taunting
those shadows might be
when they’re just tree limbs
those shadows you see.
Then as the darkness
falls from the way,
you might be laughing
at shadows of gray.

Mist Of Night

Winds of winter
hold so tight
in the grip of
mist of night.
Strong winds blowing
time is seen
mist of night
a moments dream.
Throughout seconds
minutes will grow
mist of night
with winds that blow.
Springtime’s awaiting
time to begin
mist of night
for the winters end.
Soon the flavors
a wintery sight
will be springtime’s
mist of night.

The Love of Friends

A friend so true
as time displays
can become
the best of days.
The love of friends
as counted minds
comes from truth
in days and times.
Faithful truthful
not of lies
the love of friends
won’t meet demise.
Yet with lying
words of mouth
all that was
will just go south.
For the moments
need to frame
the love of friends
and not insane.
Holding truthful
done and said
what that friendship
does not dread.
So now tell me
do you flow
the love of friends
where all you go?

Farewell And Hello

The passing of a loved one
does not mean that they are gone,
for when they pass from this old place
their lives continue on,
Time might seem to be of sadness,
but the joy resides
in the loved ones made as whole
as their spirits rise.
Memories will blossom then
as new days come and go
with the sight of their farewell
and with their hello.
I’ll keep my grandparents in my heart
and all that have gone too,
for I know when my time is up
I’ll be right there with you.
The body only holds a moment
then it must let go
to find the time and place to say
your farewell and hello.

Beyond Our Eyes

With sights unseen
and things less heard
beyond our eyes
there’s many a word.
Spirits are speaking
saying real clear
Heaven is wondrous
and God’s sincere.
Ghost all around us
with angels wings
speaking of Jesus
and how Heaven sings.
Now might seem clouded,
but truth will be found
when we are standing
upon solid ground.
Life can seem endless,
but see how it flies
when you are older
beyond our eyes.

Windows Of Heaven

Now and then will come a time
that we must all be true
and look within our hearts desires
and find life anew.
For the seconds turn to hours
as time falls away
and within the windows of Heaven
then will come our day.
The hearts as sailing ships of time
might one day cease to float
and then they’ll need to find Lord God
to sail them in His boat.
His boat to Heaven sailing true
is that of blessings tide
that sails unto windows of Heaven
with His love inside.
Things we say and do each day
will one day need to find
forgiveness for the things we’ve done
to find a peaceful mind.
For within the windows of Heaven
there’s no room for sin,
so pray to God and ask Lord Jesus
to come and live within.

Spring Has Arisen

The sky might be cloudy,
but blue sky is there
for spring has arisen
with sights everywhere.
The snow is now melting
with waters to flow.
Yes spring has arisen
to give us a show.
Flowers soon blooming
and leaves will then sprout
as trees start saying
what springs all about.
New air to blossom
from rosebuds to bloom
then within April,
May and then June.
Spring has arisen
with life coming true
that in time will blossom
a new life for you.

Meaningless Chatter

Words of abundance
in a jumbled array
can become confusions
words of dismay.
Speaking too often
and not hearing clear
what ones are saying
that might be sincere.
Yet many times though
meaningless chatter
is the prognosis
of lesser the matter.
But don’t confuse it
what all that is heard,
because what they’re saying
might not be absurd.
Meaningless chatter
is sometimes the case,
but other times surely
it needs your embrace.

A Silent Glance

A scene a sight
a friendly dance
is sometimes as
a silent glance.
The dance is just
a time and frame
a silent glance
a different name.
Then the thoughts
that ones perceive
a silent glance
will start to breathe.
A breath of life
of friendly ways
a silent glance
will fill the days.
Let those minutes
become as

But don’t let

a silent glance
with bitter woe.
Choose your glance
with truth embrace
a silent glance

Front To Back

Up and down,
and front to back
some directions
fade to black.
Red and blue
gives purple scenes
with blue and yellow
turned to greens.
Front and back
can change its place
as some foods
have different taste.
Last to first
is sometimes fact,
but it’s often
not exact.

Life is often

A Timeless Page

A book of Christmas opened wide
and gave some sights to see,
with lights lit up red, green and blue
upon a Christmas tree.
A timeless page with magic words
that displayed certain hues,
some toys for Jimmy and doll for Pam
and even some brand new shoes.
The scenes so magical displayed times
of which the times foretold
a timeless page in a story book
of Christmases of old.
Each word that’s written down with ink
is filled with love and care
as each page shows of Christmas scenes
with Santa’s wondrous flair.
Yet some pages turned and read
are found with Jesus Christ,
a timeless page of long ago
donned with starry lights.
Christmas season opened wide
this book of loves details,
a timeless page is turned to show
what Christmastime entails.
The stage of love from up above
that pages do employ
a timeless page of love and care
that’s filled with Christmas joy.
So as you read this book of scenes
remember that great age
with Jesus Christ and Santa Claus
upon this timeless page.

Where All We Go

With you and me
and each new day
our paths might cross
in some old way.
The signs of times
might surely show
you and me
where all we go.
With ins and outs
of times mistaken
there might be
a picture taken.
Where all we go
that’s memorized
the things we’ve done
beneath the skies,
No matter when
or where we went
where all we go
is times intent.
For you and I
with passageways
will maybe find
the same old days.
Yet the moments
might occur
where all we went
and seem a blur.
Then those minutes
moments times
might turn into
only rhymes.

Rekindled Thoughts

Thinking rethinking
minutes gone by
minutes tick onwards
and might seem to fly.
Rekindled thoughts are
timeless to find
as we are thinking of
time after time.
Thoughts of a second
are paving the hours
with rekindled thoughts
that timeless empowers.
Some seeming lengthy,
but they just flew by
as a roadrunner running
from a critter so sly.
The footprints in sand
from footsteps you took
are rekindled thoughts
at times you mistook.
More than a memory,
more than a day
rekindled thoughts
can fade all the gray.
Finding all the wonders
of times that you lost
and smiling remembering
rekindled thoughts.

Changing Perception

Donning your new eyes
changing perception
might find you standing
needing correction.
For through your choices
you might have then wronged
someone on someday
that might have belonged.
Changing perception
finds other views,
looking with new eyes
and seeing the trues.
Often our perception
has come from a friend
and not from our own sight
to then depend.
So let your new days
find some correction
from that of new eyes
changing perception.

Pipe Dreams

Seeming realistic,
but falsely displayed,
pipe dreams can be like
a live hand grenade.
Fantasy living
can become nightmares
found as some pipe dreams
with just but a flair.
Scenes with exclusions
of times reality.
Pipe dreams can become
a lost entity.
Times full of falsehoods
with you oh so great.
that turn into nightmares
which truth can’t relate.
Life turns the pipe dreams
into history,
the things that are not true
and what’s reality.

A Faraway Place

In a land so faraway
where the sun is so high
and the people are friendly
as they struggle by,
I found a true friendship
that has become much more,
he’s more like son of mine
I’ve never seen before.
We surely have never met
and I have no true fatherhood,
but he acts like a son of mine
in a faraway neighborhood.
In a faraway place in time
where two souls connected
we found through the internet
heartbeats that were affected.
One needing compassion
and the other with love
in a faraway place in time
with much love from above.
Time brought them closer
through then and tomorrow
with one in a faraway place
to Henry Nana Kwaku Oduro.

Haiku
for Apr 8,  2016

Beneath a liar
holds many different views,
that sway back and forth.

A simple flower
can change all the scenery
with merely a glance.

Blinding is the sun
if our eyes look long and hard,
but warmth it will give.

A footsteps journey
shows many mistakes we make
as our own imprints.

A tree that’s swaying
might have a windy reason
or creature within.

What lives within us
can become our destruction
if it’s only lies.

Reluctant people
will wait as long as they can,
before doing things.

Scenes of a haze
are often just a moment
that sleep can repair.

As grass is growing
so are many weeds thereto,
but beauty they give.

The fangs of a dog
are not there to bite you,
but chew up their food.

Time is dynamite
when it’s used in the wrong way,
for it can explode.

A bird flying high
often uses some breezes
to keep it aloft.

Mind blowing moments
will one day become calming
as time goes its way.

Today’s yesterday
might become the tomorrows
that you’re wishing for.

Sometimes believing
needs you to look passed your doubts
and see what that’s true.

The essence of life
is not just of what we see,
but what we cannot.

A page of our life
holds stories with many words
that ones cannot spell.

Best is perception,
for what seems the best right now
might be very wrong.

A valley of life
has an essence of beauty
with freewill of time.

Desires of thieves
will dig into others lives
and take them away,

Planting a flower
will not make it to grow strong,
for it needs water.

Chances are given
that many use foolishly
without thinking first.

When We Start

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s another week gone by and spring is making
itself known up here.  Floods are beginning due
to melting ice and snow.  Right now at 3:30 in
the evening it’s 29 F degrees though.  Still not
quite spring weather hehehe.  OK it’s spring
weather for up here,  but not for where I was
born and raised in Texas LOL.  My weather
program shows that it might warm up a little
by Wednesday to the upper 30’s and then by
late week to the upper 40’s,  but that’s just
a guess from The Weather Channel.  Tonight
it’s supposed to get down to 9 F degrees LOL.
Or at least by morning it should be 9 F.  So,
what else is happening over this way.  Well,
Thursday morning when I let the boys out to
go potty,  they decided to go out for a field trip
on their own.  I donned my shoes and took
my camera with me to go and find them and
tell them to get their butts back to the house.
LOL I was hollering for them and then here
comes Rocky running towards me and then
he stopping by my side.  I kept on hollering,
but Benny ignored me hehehe.  I walked on
and then he saw me and knew he was in hot
water LOL.  He shuddered a bit and then he
slowly came running.  I took pictures of them
both as they ran to the house.  After that we
started putting their electronic fence collars
on them again.  Stopped that hehehe.  I’m
sure that after a few days of that they’ll get
the message and go back to hanging around
the house until Judy and/or I take them out
for a field trip.  I’m too afraid they’ll get into
something that I won’t be able to find them
and help them if I were not there.  Benny is
mostly the one I worry about.  He’s a curious
little fart.  None the less they are both doing
well.  Ornery as ever LOL!  Our landlord
came by yesterday and said,  he’ll have to
come by and fix his mess ups in a few days 🙂
He used his tractor with backhoe and bucket
to clear our driveway a few times and he dug
a few deep ditches in the driveway hehehe.
Yep,  before he’ll be able to mow,  he’ll have
to fix that.  No way he’ll be able to mow the
way it sits LOL. So what else is going on at
the Pearce’s Place?  Our youngest grandson
Christian came to spend the weekend with us.
We stayed up till about 3 AM this morning
watching funny videos on Youtube.  Plus,  he
brought a Dragonball Z movie with him for
us to watch with him.  We always enjoy it
when Christian comes to visit.  We all went
to Subway last night and bought some sub
sandwiches that we brought home for our
dinner.  We watched Ghost Adventures
or what ever that was called and then we
watched Youtube videos for the rest of the
night till about 3 AM.  Then my old neck
and back said Bill go to bed.  So me and
Judy headed to bed.  Christian headed to
the recliner in the living room where he
sleeps and he sat playing with his tablet
watching Youtube DBZ gaming videos and
some others.  Right now he’s gone in there
to keep from bothering me as I write.  He
is so considerate 🙂  Though I doubt he’d
bother me being in here,  but at least this
way, if he gets excited he doesn’t have to
worry about laughing too loud hehehe.
Judy is behind me reading a book on
her Kindle.  It was just a tablet,  but she
downloaded a Kindle app and it turned
it into a Kindle 🙂   Cheaper than buying
a Kindle which we surely can’t afford.
So it seems all’s well at the Pearce’s Place.
Yep,  it even seems that our ghost dog
is enjoying life as it may 🙂  Yes,  it seems
we have a ghost dog and he plays with the
dog toys even when Benny and Rocky
are not in the room hehehe.  We think
it might be Milo.  He did so love to play
with the toys,  of course up until he lost
his hearing and couldn’t hear them squeak.
Yet he still would find the Lamb Chop
dog toy and run through the house with
it hehehe.  His favorite when he could
hear was the blue octopus.  For that
matter it was also Benny’s favorite and
they would often have a tug of war with
it LOL.  That poor little octopus 🙂  His
tentacles and eyes caught the brunt of
it all hehehe.  We even bought another
one,  so they would each have one,  but
they still fought over the one hehehe 🙂
Rocky likes to empty all of the toy boxes
and string the toys out all through the
house.  When we start picking them up
and putting them back,  he will be right
behind us taking them out faster than
we can get them in the boxes LOL.  He
LOVES those dog toys.  Benny plays
with one or two,  but that’s all he ever
has interest in hehehe.  Not Rocky LOL.
Nope,  he plays with them ALL.  Boy,
that wind outside is blowing profusely.
Sheesh,  it sounds like a sledge hammer
as it beats against the house with each
gust.  OK maybe not a heavy sledge
hammer,  but maybe a really soft sort
of sledge hammer hehehe.  None the
less,  we can feel the trailer shake as
my monitor sways back and forth like a
pendulum hehehe.  Makes me a little
dizzy sort of to try and read hehehehe.
This things swings like a pendulum do
bobbies on bicycles,  two by two 🙂 LOL.
Hehehe an old Roger Miller song came
back to me.  I used to love that song 🙂
Chug-A Lug and Do-Wacka-Do were
also some of my favorites of his.  My
favorite cousin Melodie and me used
to always sing those songs.  She passed
away many years ago.  But she still is
alive in spirit as she watches me from
Heaven 🙂  Love ya Melodie,  but then,
I’m sure you already know that.  So
OK what else is there to ramble about?
It doesn’t look like there’s much else to
tell you.  God has been watching over
Judy and I since the beginning and I’m
sure He is watching over us today.  He
has sent many angels to help us when
we were in need.  We thank God for
that and all that we are so unaware of
that He does for us.  You should also be
thankful even if you are unaware of what
He has done for you.  So many blessings
go under our radar as we just continue
our lives.  Thank Him for all that you
know of and all that you know not of.
Trust that God is always in control,
no matter how bad things might seem.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin
my search back through all that I have
written here to see 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.  It looks as if
I may have found a decent title and now
after checking, I see that I haven’t used
it yet,  so here goes.  Wish me luck 🙂

When We Start

Beginnings begin
when endings subside
and when we start
we’ll find a new ride.
Maybe found bumpy
or with some road blocks.
Yes when we start
we might hit some rocks.
Times might uncover
some hidden pathways
for when we start
we’re seeing new days.
Some might seem silly
and some might seem dumb,
but when we start moving
we will have begun.
Learning our lessons
from times driven trails
when we start out with
some ignorant sails.
Then as our journey
finds footing in place
time becomes doorways
with new things to face.
So when we start out
and see things to change
time in a new day
might seem very strange.
Yet when we start out
and head on our way
we need to let Jesus
help us every day.

Okie dokie there ya go.  It might not be
that good,  but it’ll have to do hehehehe.
I often have no control of what comes out
of my head and into writing.  I just start
writing using the title as the beginning to
form thoughts as a river.  It sometimes
flows quickly as it did just now and the
words just pour out like water.  Anyways,
I hope you enjoyed it and maybe even
enjoyed my rambling.  Yes,  I know,  I
do tend to ramble a bit,  don’t I hehehehe.
Well as long as you got a laugh or 2 from
it,  that’s all that matters.  Hopefully my
rambling also served you some peace to
take with you in life.  I know that when
I read it back to myself,  I’ll often find
myself in another world.  Weird I know,
but that’s me.  Yeppers,  I’m weird with
a capital W hehehe.  That wind is still
blowing quite briskly outside.  It shows
on my weather program that we are
having 20 to 30 mph winds with 40 mph
gusts,  so yeppers,  it be blowing hard.
Well I don’t believe I have forgotten
anything,  so I reckon it’s time for me
to be telling you what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yep,  10 more
poems with 1 that’s a tad Christmassy 🙂
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you
can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like.  Now,  I believe it’s time for
me to be searching for that confounded
off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most blessed weekend or whatever’s
left of it and a truly wonderful week 🙂
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now,  where is that blasted
off switch hiding at this time?  Hmm I
think I see a little movement behind
my monitor hehehe aside from the
swaying that it is doing on its own
due to the wind LOL.  Yep that little
varmint was hanging onto the back
of my monitor and losing its grip as
the monitor rocked back and forth 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S.  Oh yea,  I wrote another poem
Friday about friends that will up the
count of poems to 11 hehehe Enjoy.

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

Despite The Pain

The stress of time
that falls in place
might some times
put a frown on your face.
So many heartaches
that come into view
might sometimes
create what you do.
Patterns repeated
might show on your face
a breath of much lesser
and with a bad taste.
Yet all those moments
time frames record
might be many lessons
allowed from our Lord.
Time might seem bitter
and seem so insane,
but you might get stronger
despite the pain.

A Change Of Pace

Footsteps marching
to their own drum
while they might whistle
or they might hum.
Ones own footsteps
will record a trace
the times that they
had a change of pace.
Often seen running
and then slowing down
a change of pace
shows how they get around.
Many situations
will discern our path
and a change of pace
might lessen our wrath.
So our destinations
that we’re striving for
a change of pace
might help us go far.
Taking a breather
from your daily stride
a change of pace
might smooth out the ride.
So don’t be always
be in a mad race.
Enjoy the journey
with a change of pace.

Melting Icicles

The season of winter
comes in with a roar
found with the sight of
snowflakes and more.
Bringing in settings
of new sights to see
with icicles forming
upon every tree.
Christmas then heightens
the wintertime scenes
with many colors
of red blues and greens.
Some lights with colors
found just of white
with icicles forming
in the dark of the night.
Then when the season
has done all it can
some melting icicles
display another plan.
Springtime awakens
as snow melts away
with melting icicles
March, April and May.

Never Say Never

When in a moment
you might sort of say
I’ll never do that
not never a day.
Sometimes that moment
might not be true,
for what you say never
might be within you.
Saying that you’ll never
do anything
might find you one day
changing how you sing.
So never say never
for turnstiles might change
leaving you choices
to do something strange.
Then with the choices
and what’s in front of you
your never say never
might seem good to do.

A Cloud Filled Morning

The beginning of the day
shows raindrops to fall
on a cloud filled morning
with springtime to call.
Winter’s still holding tight
a grasp white as snow,
as the season of springtime
seeks much to grow.
Northern skies clouded up
revealing a view
filled full of hopeful
that spring will come true.
Like a book of pages
that turn with the wind
the days show us springtime
that shall transcend.
Then as the snow melts
and winter is gone
a cloud filled morning
will then carry on.

A List Of Tries

Efforts of useless
only explode
a list of tries
on down the road.
Not giving your all
to surely succeed
a list of tries
won’t give what you need.
Put better effort
in good things to do
and then you might
not end up so blue.
A list of tries
so many will write
what all they’ll do
each day and each night.
But the best efforts
in what’s not just lies
can help you succeed
a list full of tries.

Less Of Me

I find times
I’m so confused
what that’s me
that I abused.
Scenes created
in my mind
things remembered
time to time.
Now I gather
all my strength
to take God
the greater length.
Less of me
and more of Him
not just when
my life is dim.
God makes great
my life to see,
more of Him
and less of me.

The Walls Of Time

Decades of pastimes
of which we will see
the walls of time
become history.
If walls could talk
they’d tell a tail
things they’ve seen
of Heaven and Hell.
All that was spoken
the walls heard clear
as they recorded
each smile and each tear.
The walls of time
that many don’t know
show all the heartbreaks
and love that will grow.
So much remembered
is found to remind
the leftover moments
the walls of time.

Bluebells

Remembering Texas
and flowers that bloom
I think of Bluebells
we saw within June.
All of those flowers
flowing like seasons
Bluebells so wondrous
as flowery legions.
Exposing springtime
and summer’s rain
Bluebells discernment,
joy to attain.
Remembering those times
a long time ago
I have the pictures
of Bluebells that grow.
Seasonal displays
timeless details
the sight of the wonderful
scenes of Bluebells.

Life In A Doorway

Standing just looking in
you might not find
the life that you’re seeking
to fill up your mind.
Life in a doorway
just standing around
you might not see what’s
there to be found.
Sometimes your footsteps
need to walk in
to allow God to work
and help you begin.
Yet many times we
might need to stand
life in a doorway
and think of a plan.
Not with hurried heart
seeking each day,
learning what to do with
life in a doorway.

Friendship Through Life

Decisive the years pass
as friendships are born
and some might end up
a bit mangled and torn.
Chances for friendship
will come and then go
with some as good-byes
and some as hello.
Yet there are many then
that find ways to be
a friendship through life
and our history.
Lessons from passed days
will often foretell
a friendship through life,
or one not so well.
So as the pages turn
in times so precise,
some might be true in
friendship through life.

Haiku
for Mar 31,  2016

Summer of violets
displays a reddish blue hue
that seems as Heaven.

Morning is the time
that allows new beginnings
to let time to pass.

Minutes of a rose
are as petals in the wind
as their time finds end.

Leftover heartbeats
can bring forth a miracle
seen as a daisy.

Love finds emotions
within the moonlight at night
and stars up above.

Seasons have moments
that are discerned as patterns
changing with the wind.

The times we recall
might be what needs forgotten,
for they are hatred.

Hardwired anger
brings regretful emotions
that later arrive.

Thriving on mishaps
finds your growth without lessons
if mishaps don’t teach.

Lasting impressions
come at unfortunate times
and leave a bad taste.

Roads to endearment
often have winding journeys
with some bumpy miles.

The knowledge to drive
refers to more than a car,
but how you’re to act.

A leaf falling down
has no predetermined flight
or place it shall land.

Ones recollections
might have lost their true colors
and turned black and white.

Sunshine and rainbows
are blessings from up above
to help peace to thrive.

Glancing at the sky
you might see a few emotions
found within your eyes.

True friends will be there
no matter how much you have,
for they are deeper.

Beyond what we see
holds the flavors of passion
found in Lord Jesus.

A bugs life seems small,
but to it there’s always hope,
found in tomorrow.

Depicting colors
of springtime to summertime
shows colors so bright.

Timeless solitude
comes as a forest of life
with leaves falling down.

Changing perception
needs a change from deep within
to allow the change,

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
&
HAPPY EASTER

I’m sitting here home alone while Judy and the
boys are over at her sisters house for Easter.  I
had another rough night and could not sleep at all,
so I had to stay home and try to get some rest.  So
here I am.  I asked Judy to try and bring me home
a doggy bag LOL.  Oh well,  I do enjoy time alone
from time to time.  I love Judy and the boys,  but
it does get a bit stressful being around each other
too much if ya know what I mean.  We all need a
little bit of alone time.  So,  what’s been going on
around the Pearce’s Place this past week?  Well,
it snowed a little bit last Monday and I took my
conga drums outside and did a little video while
the boys pranced around me in the snow,  The
boys had a blast 🙂  Benny and Rocky ran circles
around me as I played hehehe. A bit earlier I got
a video of me walking out to check the mail and
the boys watched me from our driveway,  but
on returning to the house I think that they may
have thought I was going to take them for a
walk in the field and so they headed out to the
field while looking back at me.  I walked out
a ways and then I had a thought.  I walked
back to the house to get the attachment for
my camera so I could put it on my tripod and
then I aimed it out towards the field and I
headed out to find them and try to get them to
race me home 🙂  The video came out fairly well
aside from the snow that landed on the camera
lens hehehe,  Tuesday,  Judy and I went into
town to buy some groceries and I of course
took pictures there and to as always :). I got
some nice moon shots that evening.  Thursday
I walked out to check the mail as I usually do
and Benny and Rocky watched me as they will
do when they are outside,  but on my return,
they did as they have been doing quite often
and headed out to the field.  This time I went
ALL THE WAY out with them and I got some
great shots of them running and playing 🙂
I even got a few nice scenery shots.  I thank
God for this camera.  If not for my camera
I would go crazy LOL.  I love reminiscing old
pictures of our past.  They seem to come to
life inside my mind as I flip through the many
different views and places we have visited.
Ok so what else has happened this week?
Well,  Judy and her sister Barb went way
up north of us to see their brother Ricky
and have Easter dinner with him.  Once
again I had not slept and no way I could
go.  I was so tired and dizzy that I could
barely stand up,  so I went back to bed
when they left.  Judy took a few pictures
of Ricky.  He’s looking good and he was
even smiling in some of the pictures 🙂
He’s still in the nursing home.  Not sure
of how long he will be there,  but we’re
sure he cannot function alone as he had
been.  No matter what,  God is in control.
So that’s about all from our part of the
world LOL.  Not much excitement.  Just
life from day to day.  Benny and Rocky
are as ornery as ever.  They will often
get in one of their more playful moods
and start playing chase throughout the
house.  Rocky seems to want all of the
toys to play with which leads to a full
floor of doggy toys.  When Judy or I
start picking them up and putting them
away,  Rocky will be right behind us
taking them out again LOL.  He loves the
toys, ALL OF THEM LOL.  Benny has
always played with 1 or 2,  but never
all of them.  We have 3 toy boxes filled
with doggy toys and you can bet that
Rocky will attempt to empty them out
as fast as he can hehehe.  He’ll come in
here with a toy and then leave to get
another one and then another one and
well,  you get the point 🙂  Yep,  we’ve
got some crazy boys,  but we love them.
They bring us laughter,  joy and love
each day they come in the room.  We
might get irritated with them time to
time hehehe, but we still love them 🙂
You might get mad or aggravated with
your children,  but you must always
love them,  because they are yours to
love.  We love our little boys.  I love
my daughter and granddaughter and
miss them oh so much.  Judy and I can’t
wait till they come up and visit us again.
We had the greatest Christmas ever
when they came up and spent it with us.
I almost started crying when they were
leaving,  but I didn’t want them to see me
crying,  so I held it back.  No one wants
to see a grown man cry ;),  though I have
and will again.  It’s part of my humanity.
Anyways,  I hope you can make it up
again one day soon Jamye.  Sami,  me
and you will have to do another video
together :).  I love you both oh so much.
Ok so I guess I have rambled enough
huh!  I reckon it’s time for me to begin
my search for 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 I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may have stumbled on a good
title just about a 3rd of the way back
in all of my rambling hehehe.  Now to
see if I can do anything with it LOL.
Here goes……….

All Of Them

Times remembered,
times we’ve viewed.
Times we might have
misconstrued.
All of them maybe
might just be found
with us in moments
just looking around.
For truly all of them
times that we’ve seen
can maybe one day
be found in a dream.
Our recollections
of time frames before
might now be journeys
that we so adore.
For the mere moments
might of seemed bad,
but later on then
find that you’re glad.
Lessons from leisure’s
of out on a limb
might now be blessings
within all of them.

There ya go hehehe.  I had no clue of what I
was going to do with that title LOL,  but as
usual,  I just started writing and that’s what
came out of it.  Sometimes I feel a presence
looking over my shoulder and giving me a
little nudge with things to say.  It might be
my dad.  He used to always love to come in
my room and look over my shoulder as I was
writing.  If it’s not him,  then it might be my
Pawpaw or even a friend of mine that has
passed.  None the less,  I some how manage
to get the poem written in just a matter
of minutes 🙂  Let me see if I have forgotten
to tell you anything.  Hmm,  I can’t think
of anything.  It’s hard to believe that this
month is almost over.  It seems like the
older that we’ve become that time has
sped up.  A week passes by just like a
blink and being able to tell what day it
is gets harder every day.  That might be
due to both of us being retired though 🙂
Anyways,  I guess I need to tell you what
I tell you almost every week and that is
I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers,  10 more poems with 1 being
sort of Christmassy.  I had some time
to myself yesterday and wrote 4 more
poems,  so actually I wrote 14 this week.
Yes of course I wrote 22 haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you
can find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like.  Now I believe it’s time for me to
be searching for that confounded off
switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful Easter and weekend or what
ever is left of it and a truly blessing filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  So now,  where is that little
varmint off switch hiding at this week?
Hmm,  it seems I can see a little bit of
movement from behind my camera in
the floor.  Yep,  it looks like he was
trying to hide and take a selfie at the
same time LOL.  Smile,  ya silly thing
cause I gotcha,  see ya zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S.  My friend Robin Franks called a
minute ago to wish me Happy Easter.
God,  thank You for my friends 🙂

P.S. again hehehe
I’m also going to include a picture of Judy’s
Easter wreath in my stationery that she made
last weekend for craft night at her sisters house.
I think it came out quite nice 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+4 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Spring Begins

It waves a flag
sometimes as white
seen by day
and also night.
Spring begins
yet not yet seen
now’s nightmare
soon a dream.
Snow still falling
from the sky
as ones want
to wave goodbye.
Spring begins
with little signs
such as warmer
seasons times.
Now with each day
ones complain
how spring begins
in northern Maine.

Beside Myself

Despite my choices
time finds ways
to help me find
much better days.
Beside myself
I stand to look
often at
what I mistook.
My decisions
find my fad
often displayed
oh so bad.
Yet some moments
I foresee
are what’s learned
from history.
So those times
I seek the best
beside myself
with wondrous zest.
Not just sitting
on the shelf
feeling sad
beside myself.

Wants And Needs

With wanting ways
of greediness
it sometimes seems
we have much less.
Wants and needs
discerned arrays
are confusions
many days.
Tides of times
of other shores
sometimes turns
to old folklore’s.
Seasons journeys
window scenes
might just be
your sight that leans.
Lists of pages
wants and needs
might confuse
the moments seeds.
For our wants
that we think true
might not be
real good to do
and our needs
from day to day
are the blessings
God’s Own Way.
He allows us
turnstiles found
to take the choice
to look around.
What we’re wanting
might not shine,
for its greed
and its design.
What we’re needing
might be there
with God’s love
and answered prayer.

Snowflakes Sailing

Winds blow profusely
as each day turns around
finding the beginnings
of a new sight and sound.
With snowflakes sailing
to another scenes floor
the stage in the distance
is changing some more.
Distant are the hillsides
with their wandering times
with snowflakes sailing
making brand new designs.
Timeless the minutes are
as Christmas bells ring
so far in the distance
for our Savior and King.
The blessings of memories
find some certain arrays
with snowflakes sailing
in magical ways.
Christmas and its wonders
are found so compelling
blessings from Jesus Christ
snowflakes sailing.

Thunder In The Night

Summers nights raindrops
come in with a roar
as thunder in the night
you feel on the floor.
The roaring of its moments
display such a scene
along with the lightning
to highlight a dream.
Thunder in the night
can become such a sound
filling ones with fear
as it’s felt all around.
The lightning in the sky
makes a beautiful array
as it sometimes lights up
the night just like day.
It’s just like fireworks
but maybe a little more
thunder in the night
with its bellowing roar.

Echoes Of Twilight

Stars in the night sky
are such a sight
scenes found exploding
echoes of twilight.
Throughout the echoes
some sounds might seem
just like a minute
or just like a dream.
Twilight shows glimmers
of words in the sky
as that of echoes
that might seem to fly.
Mind forming moments
become many smiles
echoes of twilight
that true love compiles.
A lover in the night stands
wanting and waiting
seeking through the echoes
while anticipating.
Echoes of twilight
bring forth Heavens love
blessings of starlight
from Lord God above.

Flavors Of Lies

Some lies are tasteless
and without good choice
while some are much better
to complement voice.
Flavors of lies are
often confused
when ones choose wrongly
to make ones abused.
Showing ones kindness
and not what’ that’s you
can be a lie
that is better to do,
but don’t let that lying
to become of your style
for if you do then
hate you’ll compile.
Yet don’t be hateful
with words that will hurt
saying that they’re ugly
or they look like dirt.
Help ones be better
with flavors of lies,
but don’t let them become
what all you comprise.
Learn of the difference
what all you should say,
for sometimes the truth
is the much better way.

Friday’s Charm

Monday comes quickly
as time moves along
then comes the evening
with Tuesday to dawn.
Wednesday then wakes up
to bring in a lump
what that so many
call day of the hump.
Then Thursdays turnstile
opens its door
showing the minutes
of time to explore.
While evening passes
and night is consumed
the dawning of Friday
is then found attuned.
Then with the beckoning
of your alarm
soon will come Saturday
is Friday’s charm.

Lessons Of Life

Portions of oceans
of tides of our time
might seem as poems with
rhythm and rhyme.
Lessons of life
might find ways to go
without your efforts
found to and fro.
Moments might pass by
leaving a trail
lessons of life
that journeys entail.
Painted as minds eyes
time ticks along
often remembered
as some old love song.
Many times moments
will seem full of strife
when all they are is
lessons of life.

Games People Play

So many liars
and so many thieves
games people play
with webs they will weave.
Sounds of a heartbeat
earth tones explode
within a heartache
on down the road.
Games people play
will often fall prey
to that of sorrow
with colors of gray.
Players of lifestyles
often are found
playing their games like
no one’s around.
Don’t become players
of heartless emotion,
because if you do then
you’ll lose devotion.
Let God to guide you
with your everyday
and don’t get caught up
in games people play.

Sky Of Day

Sky of night
disperses stars
and the sound
of near by cars.
Then by morning
what that’s seen
is the sight of
poets dream.
Sky of day
displays the hues
colors shining
in the blues.
Clouds pass by
and paint the sky
with a shade of
where and why.
Then by evening
fades away
displaying night
no sky of day.

Glassy Eyes

Scenes of dreams
that come so clear
might induce
to see and hear.
Glassy eyes
from lack of sleep
find in dreams
what hope can keep.
Sleepless nights
that turn and twitch
becomes signs
of glassy glitch.
Things recorded
timeless views
becomes as
some nightly news.
Then within
a mornings rise
there might be
some glassy eyes.

This Day And Age

While many might wonder
how time went askew,
others are watching us
here thereunto.
Minutes of moments time
count now as blunder
while ones responsible
look over yonder.
The rich keep getting richer
and the poor still strive
in this day and age
to just stay alive.
So many with millions
don’t care about you
or what that they’ve doing
to create every view.
I know it’s been going on
for a long time
as decades are passed by
as rhythm and rhyme,
For this day and age is
needing to see
a leader to help us
make peace you and me.
Finding the pathways
to new days ahead
with this day and age
not so full of dread.
Look to your hearts now
and see what that’s true
a concerned leader
that cares about you.
Not just a boaster
that only shows hate,
but a true person
with love to create.

This Is it

Time is done
then it’s gone
as each day
from dusk to dawn.
This is it
time to change
sometimes found
a little strange.
Pointless words
actions too
become seen
what’s me and you.
This is it
we have today
minutes ticking
swish and sway.
Lose the doubt
and find within
better ways
to then begin.
This is it
as time ticks on
do your best
before it’s gone.

Life as a flower
is a bloom waiting springtime
suffering winter.

Looking through windows
the outside might look pretty,
but it’s illusion.

Bewildered moments
come as elusive daydreams
that somehow come true.

Counting your blessings
might find you out of numbers
counted correctly.

Sad has a viewpoint
that many can see clearly,
but not understand.

The semblance of love
can often be emotions
lost in perception.

Countless are the stars
that shine so very brightly
guiding ships at sea.

Snowy hills we see
can become children’s stories
read to them at night.

Truth of a storm cloud
can hide emotional actions
of snowflakes and rain.

Consumed by fire
a person might lose themselves
and need extinguished.

Necessity of life
which is often misconceived
is often just greed.

Graven images
find ways inside our lifestyles
as our memories.

A caterpillar
dreams of a butterfly’s life
and then becomes one.

Gestures of a hand
can direct an orchestra
or swat down a fly.

Answers to questions
often lead to more questions
without good answers.

Scenes of a campfire
hold the sight of the campers
found within the flames.

Looking for a breath
you might find it in a breeze
as it blows on through.

Shadows of true life
can become a mere nightmare
within the wrong light.

Sounds of falling trees
are echoes in a forest
depleting our air.

Weathering problems
can become lessons to learn,
but only if learned.

Views of a minute
can become lesser or more
discerned by others.

Information road
might have a few snags in it
that were not informed.

None The Less

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well it’s that time once again that I usually begin
rambling incessantly and so I guess I’ll not change
that course of action LOL.  I hope life is treating
you well.  Judy and I are hanging in there as the
weather goes back and forth with its indecision’s
of what to do.  Today’s supposed to be the first
day of spring right.  Tomorrow we’re expecting
3-5 inches of snow and 16 F degrees by morning
and a high of 31 F degrees for the day. There’s
supposed to be more snow to come Tuesday eve
and Wednesday morning then snow for Thursday
and Friday.  That goes on through the weekend.
So you see,  it’s not looking much like spring up
here which is fairly normal for us.  Yeppers it’s
still white outside.  Me and the boys took a little
walk in the field the other day.  OK, I took a walk.
They took a run.  Hard to run in this stuff with my
feet often breaking through the ice and sinking
in the snow below it.  We did have a good time.
I got a lot of pictures and videos of them and
I even did a video of me with the boys.  I had to
bring my tripod outside to do that LOL,  but
then some of those pictures were in last weeks
stationery journal.  I did though get a few nice
pictures of me and the boys while we were in
the car waiting for Judy.  She had a doctors
appointment and me and the boys waited in the
car for her.  We had a little selfy time hehehe.
It’s kind of chilly today,  but not too bad.  It’s
only 31 F degrees.  That in my book is fairly
warm compared to what it could be hehehe.
Rocky’s lying in the floor right behind me and
Benny is in the living room more than likely
lying in his favorite recliner standing guard 🙂
Yep,  he’s our little watch dog.  He might be
just a tad overly active watch dog,  but none
the less he likes to keep us informed about
anything he might think we need to know LOL.
When Rocky hears him bark,  he heads off
running to see if he needs his help hehehe 🙂
Ok,  so what else is going on at the Peace’s
Place?  Well,  Judy went over to her sister’s
house last night for their craft night.  All of
the sisters or should I say most of them go
as well as the daughters and each month they
pick a craft for them all to do and they spend
hours in their creativity.  Last nights craft was
a wreath.  Judy took pictures of everyone’s
wreath and I might be a tad prejudice,  but
I think Judy’s is the best hehehe.  It came out
quite nice.  I’ll add it into my stationery for
all of you that are getting that style of email
from me.  Of course all of you that are on web
mail or receiving plain text version,  you will
have to ask me to send a picture or better yet,
sign up to Facebook and add me and also Judy
as friends.  Then, you’ll be able look at all of
the pictures that we have uploaded hehehe.
Just add me using my email address and then
when I’m your friend you can find Judy in
my profile as wife and click on her to add
her.  So,  what else is there to tell ya?????
Well,  my collar bone is hurting really bad.
I think my old joints are wearing out.  Judy
thinks the ball socket might be worn and it’s
making it real hard to move and painful at
all times.  But,  I guess that’s the price for
all of my falling on the ice hehehe.  I reckon
that all of my falls have damaged my joints
quite a bit.  LOL that’s why I am never too
excited to hear that FALL is coming hehehe.
Yes I love autumn,  but not FALL 🙂  You get
my drift?  I love snow,  but not when it melts
and refreezes turning into that old slippery
sliding ice. I do have cleats that attach to
the soles of my shoes,  but I often forget to
put them on my shoes and I can’t just leave
them attached,  because I can’t wear the
cleats in the house.  Plus they would begin
to be stretched out to where they wouldn’t
stay attached and they would fall off at the
most un apropos times LOL.  I have had
that happen and that is why when I bought
some new cleats I make a point to remove
them from my shoes when I come inside or
take my shoes off.  Though these are a bit
more of a higher quality than the others,
but none the less,  they’ll still stretch out.
I’ve just about ran out of things to ramble
about hehehe.  Don’t that just put tingles
in your grinner 🙂  Yep,  the Peace’s Place
is still hanging in there as life throws its
many curve balls at us.  We have our share
of problems,  but with the Grace of God we
are surviving.  His blessings are all around
us.  We might not see them,  but they are
there.  Be thankful for the blessings that
you know not of.  In later dates you might
then see the blessings that were with you
in the past.  Many times it’s all about the
timing and our perception.  Most of the
time we will only see the obvious and not
see what’s hidden in a moment.  Let God
shine in your life with blessings that you
will maybe never ever see,  but as others
look at you they’ll see them clearly.  Be
always grateful for God’s miracles that
are at work beyond what we understand.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be taking
my little journey back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find me a good
word or phrase that I can use for the title
for today’s brand new poem.  So it’s away
I go to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I spied a title just a little ways back
in my writing that will work well for a title.
Now to see if I can do anything with it 🙂
Here’s goes,  again hehehehehehehehe.

None The Less

Beyond our actions
thoughts acquire,
none the less
might build a fire.
Thinking truly
too much gain,
might just make
you go insane.
None the less
what is not thought
might just find
you hurt a lot.
The waging game
from here to there
is sometimes best
when it’s done fair.
Not predicting
how ones fall
when you cheat
to win it all.
For you might just
find the best
when you’re honest
none the less.

There ya go.  I hope that makes a little bit of
sense to ya.  If not,  then maybe next week 🙂
It’s 6:11 PM now and 30 F degrees.  That’s
not too bad still.  I’m guessing that the boys
will want to go out and play in the snow agin
this week while it’s snowing.  I think we have
2 snow dogs here hehehe.  Dear Milo wasn’t
too hip with the snow,  but he would go out
with Benny for a while and play with him when
he was in better health.  I’m guessing that he
is at Rainbow Bridge enjoying the sunshine
while he waits for us to join him and prance
on over to Heaven together.  Who knows
maybe even Pepper is waiting for us and has
met Milo as they now play together.  Yes I
still think of my friend that I had when I was
a kid.  She was a great dog/girl and friend.
In any case,  the day we all are joined once
again and never to be separated again will
be the greatest.  Well,  Rocky is still right
behind me in the floor asleep.  I’ve heard
our little guard dog barking ever so often
and Rocky has gone to check on him,  but
as it turns out,  Benny was maybe barking
at the ghost of Milo or something hehehehe.
Milo’s spirit is always with us.  So I reckon
it’s time for me to tell you what I tell you
almost every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers, 10
more poems,  but with 1 sort of Christmassy.
Also once again I wrote 22 haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
So,  now I believe it’s time for me to be
searching for that darned old off switch
that is really poor at the game of hide and
seek hehehe,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend and 1st day
of spring or what ever’s left of it and a
most blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now to find
Mr. Off Switch.  Where oh where can
he be hiding,  can he be hiding in my
clear sight?  No I believe he put some
effort in his hiding this week hehehehe.
No logic in it, but effort,  yes effort LOL.
I bet it took a while for you to climb up
to the top of the ceiling so to hide in this
cheap old chandelier hehehehe.  I just
happened to stretch and look up and
there ya were,  hanging onto the light
bulb.  Gotcha,  see ya Click zzzzzzzz.
Now let’s see ya get down hehehehehe.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Making Today

While now might seem sad,
it can change oh so true
with a little bit of effort
from what all you do.
The patterns that we’ve started
can become as our past,
while the future’s creating
a new days contrast.
Turning all the bad times
into some better times
is often by perception
of our lemons and limes.
A forest of solitude
can become well applied
if you let God to help you
find peace from inside.
Right now is a moment
that can change in a way
with a little bit of effort
while making today.

Shattered

Splattered details
on our windows
sometimes seem as
innuendoes.
Shattered  places
we remember
might still burn as
brightest ember.
Shattered moments
that hurt bad
can be blessings
that we’ve had.
For each shattered
timeless way
turns to lessons
a later day.
So be thankful
for what splattered
for God strengthens
all that shattered.

Icy Flavors

Oceans billows
snowy scenes
with some blues
and with some greens.
As reflections
far and wide
icy flavors
coincide.
Painted hillsides
say hello,
icy flavors
seem to grow.
Snowflake morsels
fall so free
icy flavors
that I see.
Then they’re landing
is so right
icy flavors
painted white.

To Deceive

If you only
seek to gain
what that others
do attain,
then you lose
yourself in time
seeking for the
wrong design.
To deceive
and not say true
what there is
in what you do,
then you’ll find
that they may learn
and that friendship
might adjourn.
If you practice
to deceive
then you’ll watch
your friends to leave.

Minutes Well Counted

Lines on a persons face
discern of some scenes
minutes well counted
of the greatest cuisines.
Seeming as paintings
with days found to see
minutes well counted
on you and on me.
Time becomes an artist
that paints oh so fine
minutes well counted
of our time after time.
When lost in a mirror
your eyes might discern
minutes well counted
from all you did learn.
The days and years display
each smile and each frown
minutes well counted
that we’ve been around.
Portions of turnstiles
will open and close
minutes well counted
the choices we chose.
So as each day passes
just know God is there
minutes well counted
that might not seem fair,
but as every moment
and line on your face
minutes well counted
are filled with God’s grace.
You might not be aware
of the scenes that shine
minutes well counted
of God’s Own design.
Yet but a moments time
you might one day see
minutes well counted
to wondrous degree.
So when you are weary
and filled full of fear
minutes well counted
might one day appear.
God with His blessings
will show you so true
minutes well counted
that lived within you.

Perceptive

Sometimes perception
is not all that great,
for what we’re seeing
is early or late.
Perceptive people
will often surmise
what they are seeing
as moments disguise.
Yet many people
are not what they seem,
so our perceptiveness
might be a dream.
Life in a minutes time
can become clouded
with those perceptive
a little bit shrouded.
For as time passes
the truth might reveal
what that perceptiveness
did not see real.
Those of a moments time
might then display
to those so perceptive
a much different way.

Time In A Bottle

Wintertime’s Christmas
is counted and gained
with all the blessings
that we have attained.
Christmastimes journeys
that our minds may take
often are snow filled
with snowmen to make.
Time in a bottle
with Santa to fly
reindeer and sleighbells
so high in the sky.
Christmas Eve’s  pathway
is words in a book
children to dream of
and then have a look.
Time in a bottle
with Christmas to find
displays the journey,
that wonderful time.
Pages then fluttered
as children read on
time in a bottle
from Eve until dawn.
They might fall asleep
while waiting that night,
but time in a bottle
shows Christmas delight.

Portions Of Plenty

The needs of our greed
are often fulfilled
maybe not what with
our hopes have instilled.
Portions of plenty
might not seem enough,
but often it’s what all
we need to get tough.
Sometimes our wanting
is not found so real,
while what we are needing
is what we can feel.
Yet then so often
the needs God provide
will seem as so wrong
when our greed is applied.
Portions of plenty
are poured out each day,
but often it’s us just
looking away.
So many people
could help those in need
with God given blessings
to plant them a seed.
Portions of plenty
are provided to share,
so why not do more then
than just give a prayer.
If you are able
to help ones so empty
share of your wealth then
portions of plenty.

Northern Lights

My heart skips a beat
as I dream of the sights
scenes to encounter
as those northern lights.
The mesmerizing beauty
with lights all aglow
is found as I dream of
that northern hello.
Often I go outside
to search through the skies,
but trees in the distance
are all that will rise.
For now mere photographs
only show true
the northern lights of
bright green and blue.
Maybe some red then
to shine in the nights,
for this is what I dream of
those great northern lights.

This Room Of Dreams

While minutes tick onwards
and time moves along
this room of dreams is
filled full of song.
Singing of memories
that live in the walls
bouncing around
like little rubber balls.
This room of memories
shares every time
a portion of blessings
that I use as rhyme.
Portions of mishap
and portions of smile
this room of dreams
goes many a mile.
Carrying pathways
of passed days to now
this room of dreams
might surely say wow.
Dormant the moments
is what timeless seems,
but alive it becomes
in this room of dreams.

Haiku
for Mar 19,  2016

A day of springtime
can be found within winter
if you look closely.

The life of a rose
finds its beauty well hidden
through scenes of winter.

Dusk brings us nighttime
with stars that dance in the sky
and a moon so bright.

Lessons from a mouse
teach to be very careful
not to spring the trap.

Having a flower
does not guarantee its bloom,
for it needs much love.

A patient person
will acquire many lessons
from ones impatience.

The door that squeaks most
will so often get the oil,
but in a rough way.

Various turnstiles
might seem to be locked tightly.
You just need the key.

The portrait of man
is that of an imagery
that many can be.

Guiding lights of night
will often be lightning bugs
fluttering about.

A simple twinkle
from a star within nighttime
can induce passion.

The hereafter life
holds a place known as Heaven
that is eternity.

Anchoring yourself
to the troubles of your past
will prevent your growth.

Trials of a tree
are as branches in snowstorms
awaiting for spring.

Shadows of a leaf
will flutter just like a ghost
and then fade from sight.

Answers to a flame
are as embers in a dream
sought to burn again.

Decisive people
might overlook the best thing,
being too picky.

Glimmers of hopeful
live in the eyes of many,
that some never thought.

The hard times of youth
tend to hide all the lessons,
until we are grown.

Gradient hillsides
can become too steep to walk
and cause us to climb.

The strength of true love
is unmatchable to hate,
for love conquers all.

Looking to the stars
you might find many answers
within your own eyes.
