As The Seasons


Hello my friends

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

As The Seasons

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

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

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

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

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

Right Now And Beyond

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

Devices Of Style

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

An Angel’s Wings

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

A Santafied Dream

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

Within The Looking Stone

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

Limits Of Self

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

While Looking On

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

Dismantled Doorways

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

Looking Smart

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

August Dreams

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

for Aug 29, 2015

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

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

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

Turbines on hilltops
turn with incoming breezes
to generate life.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Some Old Pictures


Hello my friends

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

Some Old Pictures

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

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

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

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

The Waiting Game

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

Linked As One

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

Becoming Better

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

A Road Sign

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

Summer’s Morn

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

Recalling Winter

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

Long Winded People

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

One Time Thing

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

God Will Surprise

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

Love Remains

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

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

for Aug 22,  2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Annoying people
often have not any clue
of their annoyance.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It Will Hold Together


Hello my friends

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

It Will Hold Together

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

There ya go hehehe.  I hope that was good
enough for ya.  I hope my rambling didn’t
put you to sleep.  So,  what else do I need to
tell ya?  Once again,  please keep Judy in
your prayers and definitely keep Ricky in
your prayers.  Judy’s brother is facing his
amputation tomorrow (Monday) and we
are not sure about his faith in God.  He’s
a good man,  but we are not sure if God
is a part of his life.  Please pray that his
eyes are opened and the surgery goes well.
OK,  so what else is there to tell ya?  Hmm,
it looks like I have run out of my thoughts
and so it is time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems with 1 of them being
sort of Christmassy.  Also I once again
wrote 22 haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.  Now,  I do
believe it’s time for me to be searching
for that not so elusive off switch,  but
not before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend and a blessings filled week.
OK,   where the dickens are ya you lil
whippersnapper?  I see ya hiding over
there in front of the Air conditioner :)
I guess hiding wasn’t as important as
staying cool today huh hehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

Waves Of Thoughts

Beneath the oceans
waves of thoughts
life is flowing
twist and toss.
Scenes are changing
time begins
waves of thoughts
with raging winds.
A ship found sailing
there and to

ocean blue.
Waves of thoughts
are found begun
beneath the starlight
and the sun.
Each scene blessed with
sights to see
waves of thoughts
with history.

Troubles Come

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

Within A Storm

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

Winter’s Dream

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

His Love Is The Greatest

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

Lost One Of Heartaches

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

The Scent Of Winter

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

The Moon’s Big Smile

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

Breezes Of Summer

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

Desert Realms

A dusty trail
of thoughts galore
is desert realms
of times before.
Lost with footsteps
counted true
are desert realms
with hope so few.
Too much baggage
can revert
to the realms
of trails desert.
Find the answers
and then learn
to leave the desert
to discern.
Lessons thrive
in desert realms
when you let God
take the helms.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Halfhearted people
will often become disease
that infects you too.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Falling Off


Hello my friends

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

Falling Off

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

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

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

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

Friday’s Dream

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

Trivial Thoughts

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

Open Canvas

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

An Earth Bound Star

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

Night Sounds

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

A List Of Things

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

Aqua Heart

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

Lost In Perception

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

Grains Of Earth

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

Sometimes life
that’s intermixed
can cause us to
then be transfixed.
Many scenes
can hold our sight
many days
and many nights.
Times remembered

can so often
end in woe.
To be transfixed
on yesterdays
might just find
an endless maze.
So let passed days
find their place
in their minutes

for Aug 7,  2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Surely Encounter


Hello my friends

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

Surely Encounter

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

There ya go.  I hope the poem made sense
to ya.  Also I hope my rambling didn’t put
you to sleep hehehe.  I do tend to talk a lot
about the boys huh LOL.  You didn’t have
to read it ya know hehehe.  But,  if you did,
I hope it brought you a smile.  Judy is over
there writing on her book.  I’ve proof read
two chapters so far.  She sent me two more
chapters last night.  I’ll get started reading
over them later tonight or tomorrow.  So
far,  I have enjoyed what I’ve read.  She’s a
good writer.  I think I told ya once before,
but just in case,  she’s writing a sci-fi novel.
She has already written 2 books.  1 is a
poetry book and the other is about Benny
which is a children’s picture poetry book.
I’m very proud of her.  I would do a book,
but it would be a total stress on me to go
and find the poems to publish and then do
editing and reformatting and me with only
one good eye would become a lot of time
consumption with my right eye always
getting weak after an hour and having
to rest it.  Judy isn’t writing her books
to get rich,  but that would be nice LOL.
No,  she hasn’t made any money so far.
The sale of her books needs to be a lot
more than it is before she will see a check.
Maybe one day and maybe one day I will
make the decision to put in the time to
get some books published,  but not now.
For now,  you will have to read all my
ramblings in this hehehe.  OK,  so now
I think it’s time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems with one
of them being sort of Christmassy.  I
also wrote 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like.  Now I believe it’s time for me to
be searching for that not so elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend and a most
blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now,  where are
ya hiding this week ya silly varmint?
I see ya,  you’re trying a new hiding
spot huh!  Too bad it’s right there in
front of me hehehe.  Hiding behind
the air conditioner remote isn’t very
good.  The remotes only a quarter
of an inch thick,  so all I have to say
is Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

My Monochrome Mind

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

In The Beginning

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

Across The Sky

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

Beyond Perception

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

The Whitest Days

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

Ventures Of A Smile

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

Sometimes A Day

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

Painted With Love

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

A Silver lake

Upon a lake
of shimmering hue
I saw a sign
reflected true.
A silver lake
with sunshine bright
shows of ripples
silver sight.
Then as waves

Scenes of beauty
come alive
a silver lake
where waves arrive.
Time then passes

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

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

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

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

Various people
will only live for themselves
not knowing friendship.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If Not


Hello my friends

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

If Not

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

OK,  there ya go.  I hope that made at least
a little sense to ya.  Also I hope you enjoyed
my rambling.  LOL,  I know I tend to talk
more about the boys,  but we love them so
much.  Hehehe Rocky has rolled over on his
back and sleeping with his paws in the air.
Sooooo cute!  Benny is in the living room
at his post upon one of the recliners.  He’s
our little guard dog/doorbell.  I just wish he
would not bark every time he hears our
neighbors across the way LOL,  but he is
a dog even if we consider him our lil boy :)
So,  what else is there to share with you
that I have yet to do????  I can’t think of
anything,  so I reckon it’s time for me to
be telling you what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems with 1
of them being a Christmas poem hehehe.
Also I once again wrote 22 haiku for all
of the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you
can find 1 or 2 of either of both that you
like.  Now I believe it’s time for me to be
searching for that not so elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a most joyful
weekend or what ever is left of it and a
truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
to find that dad gum off switch.  LOL
I see ya you silly thing.  When are you
going to start looking for new places to
hide?  You’ve hidden behind the curtains
already once or twice hehehe.  So I guess
I got ya,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

Stepping Stones

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

As Seconds Turn

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

Within A Dream

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

Lines Of A Tree

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

Looking For Signs

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

The Sight Within Me

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

Without My Eyes

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

Knowing Yourself

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

Tomorrow’s Past Days

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

Finding A Breath Full

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Uncountable Blessings


Hello my friends

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

Uncountable Blessings

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

OK,  how’s that?  I hope you got something
out of that.  Did my rambling on an on about
our boys bore ya to tears LOL?  I hope not.
I just let Rocky outside to do his business :)
I hope he does and he doesn’t just sit on the
top steps wanting to come back inside as he
does almost every time we let him out hehehe.
I just figured I just gave him and Benny some
treats and thought he might need to go out
for a bit to potty.  Benny is once again lying
on the recliner in the living room.  I’ll go and
let Rocky back in after a bit.  He’ll be OK
out there.  It’s not raining and it’s only 63 F
degrees.  Not quite the summers that I grew
up with hehehe.  It’s 4 PM and I don’t think
it’s gonna get any warmer today.  Tomorrow
the high is supposed to be in the lower 70’s.
I don’t miss that Texas heat.  Looking back
I can remember many heat strokes and a
few sunburns hehehe.  Of course one can
get sunburned up here just as easily as in
Texas,  but the heat isn’t near as bad LOL.
I just went and let Rocky back inside and
noticed that it had started sprinkling agin
and he was a little wet :)  He’s OK.  It must
of just started sprinkling.  He’s back in
here with me now.  LOL the weather is
changing my conga drums tuning status.
Now my smaller conga is the bass.  I’ll
need to retune them before I play them
again :)  Life in the rainy state of Maine.
LOL if it’s not snowing,  it’s raining and
visa versa.  So is there anything that I’ve
forgotten to tell you?  Nope,  I think I’ve
said all that I need to say aside from the
regular that I tell you almost every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems,
but none of them are Christmas poems
this week.  Maybe next week :)  I also
wrote 22 more haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find
1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin
my search for that not so elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a
most joyous weekend or what ever is
left of it and a blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now where’s that dad burned
off switch trying to hide this week? :)
Hmm,  me thinks I might see a little
bit of movement behind my statuette
that our old neighbors gave me that
says I think you’re nice.  Yep,  there
ya are you little whippersnapper LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

Tomorrow’s Destiny

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

A Leaf That Blows

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

Looking Too Fast

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

Mistaken Shadows

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

Within The Rain

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

The Life Of A Star

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

Searching My Mind

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

Loss Of A Loved One

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

Sometimes A Story

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

A Sudden Thought

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ventured Through


Hello my friends

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

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


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

Ventured Through

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

OK,  so you can kind of tell that we miss our
little boy,  but we know he’s in a better place
and he is no longer in any pain.  He’s waiting
now to see us walking in the distance to come
join us in Heaven.  That day will come,  BUT,
for now,  we have another little bundle of joy
coming to be with us and join our little family.
This week is filled with great anticipation as
we await the message to pick Rocky up and
bring him home from the airport.  We are so
excited :)  So,  what else is there to tell you
that I haven’t already?  Hmm,  I can’t think
of anything,  so I guess it’s time for me to
be telling you what I tell you almost every
week and that is I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with
1 being sort of Christmassy and 2 of them
are about our four legged friends.  I also
once again wrote 22 haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can find
1 or 2 of either or both that you like.  Now
I believe it’s time for me to be searching
for that confounded off switch that’s not so
great at hiding,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend and a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  OK,  now where are ya
you little whippersnapper?   Awww,  come
on.  Can’t ya find a better hiding place
than my salt shaker?  Sheesh,  sometimes
I think you’re just lazy hehehe.  Anyways,
I gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

Those Special Times

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

Without Their Love

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

Time Rolls On

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

When Now Meets Then

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

Searching For Winter

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

A Smile From The Heart

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

Not Letting  Lie

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

Lost Beyond Time

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

Heading upwards

Within a thought

Minds of mysteries

For we can dream

a cosmic voyage
another day.
The scenes all change
as stars are found
way up in space
without a ground.
A cosmic voyage

of where you went.
You can take off

Tomorrow’s Yesterday

As passing days become
tomorrow’s yesterday
the minutes that we see
might just fade away.
The echoes of heartbeats
that might intertwine
can become yesterday’s
moments we find.
Tomorrow’s yesterday
finds us exploring
what that had passed on
that we were adoring.
With each and every sight
that our eyes might see
the days continue on
with what will be will be.

His love as you pray

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

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

Beyond the starlight
holds mysteries of unknown
places that exist.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Many Disasters


Hello my friends

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

Many Disasters

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

OK,  there ya go.  I thought I should write
a Independence Day poem,  but then again
I already wrote one yesterday hehehehehe.
Now ya have two of em.  I hope you liked
the poem and maybe even the journal.  Yes
I know I tended to ramble quite a bit about
Milo,  but I am worried about him.  We can
tell that he doesn’t feel well,  by just looking
in his eyes.  Please Keep him in your prayers.
So,  what else is there to tell ya that I might
have forgotten?  Hmm,  Oh yea,  I took a few
screen shots of my video.  They have Benny
and Milo in them :)  So,  those of you that
are able will be able to see them.  They’re
not the greatest pictures,  but remember,
they’re screen captures off of the video :)
So,  I guess that’s about all about that and
now it’s time for me to tell you what I tell
you almost every week and that is I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10
more poems,  but none of them Christmas
related this week LOL.  One is like I said
earlier,  about the 4th of July.  I also wrote
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  I hope you can find one or two
of either or both that you like.  Now it’s
near time for me to be searching for that
not so freaken illusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you all a most wonderful
weekend and belated 4th of July as well
as a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now to
find that confounded off switch that has
yet to of found a decent hiding spot LOL.
Hahahahaha I see ya you silly little thing.
Hiding in near the same spots that you
have hidden before is pretty much saying
ya wanna be caught,  but if ya don’t,  then
TRY HARDER next time will ya hehehe.
I see ya poking your head out from behind
that little monitor.  If you could manage
to not be poking your head out ever so
often,  I might not see ya and you might
stay hidden.   Maybe next time huh LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Beyond My Sight

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

Beyond Our Illusions

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

Vantage Point

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

Lost In Mind

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

Those Summer Rains

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

Dissolving Shadows

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

Within The Darkness

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

Always Wishing

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

Our Freedom Rings

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

A Stargazers Tour

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

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

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

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

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

Allowing patterns
to exist in misery
could cause more trouble

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

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

Meaningless chatter
only displays confusion
so take heed your words.

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

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

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

Misleading people
will often make some errors
and expose themselves.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now Days


Hello my friends

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

Now Days

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

So,  there ya go hehehe.  I know,  it’s not
one of my best,  but I have had all of this
on my mind for some time now.  I’m tired
of people critiquing others simply because
they’re different.  We are all different and
that’s how God made us.  It’s differences
that should bond us together,  not push us
apart.  Don’t be so quick to judge that guy
with long hair or a different color,  because
they might turn out to be angels.  OK,  off
of my preaching hehehe.  Back to Earth :)
Judy and I are listening to Moodscapes
on TV.  It’s peaceful music without any
words.  I seem to do my best writing while
listening to it.  Judy also loves to listen
to it.  We sleep to it quite often.  OK,  so
she sleeps to it.  I spend most of my time
running back and forth to the restroom
and when I’m not doing that I’m trying
to ignore my aching arthritis hehehehe
long enough to grab a few winks LOL.
That’s life.  At least I can still enjoy
my time with my Judy and our boys.
Also I enjoy spending time with her
family.  Maybe one day my daughter
and granddaughter will make it up
this way.  So,  I guess it’s time for me
to begin my search for that hardly
elusive off switch,  but not before I
tell you what I tell you almost every
week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yep,  10 poems
with 1 of them being a Christmas
poem.  Also once again I wrote 22
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.  Now,
where is that darned off switch this
time?  Before I begin looking I’ll
give ya a chance to make sure that
you’re hidden.  Remember my friends,
Jesus loves you and we do too. OK,
here I come.  OH for Heaven’s sake,
and I even gave you a little more
time to find a better hiding spot.
Look at you.  I can see you plain as
day right behind my respirator LOL :)
Gotcha  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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


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

Sunshine Summer

The time when rains
come pouring down
a sunshine summer
found all around.
The scenes become
assorted arrays
of sunshine summer
with day after days.
Prismatic views

With each day found

Found after spring

Without A Trace

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

Never Stands Still

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

Life Changing Space

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

A Single Spark

A tiny flake
of snow that falls
shows to me
how Christmas calls
A single spark
of joy for me
is found within
a Christmas tree.
Twinkling lights

Blessings remembered
now and then
are Christmastime

The Grasses Grow

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

Beyond The Stars

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

A Raindrop Falls

A drive to town
on summers eve
brings a raindrop
to perceive.
A raindrop falls
as clouds give way
to another
rainy day.
The windshield wipers
swipe the glass

with every pass.
A raindrop falls
to detonate
and make a splash
to procreate.
Seasons summer

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

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

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

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

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

Grandeurs delusion
is often our perception
of a fantasy.

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

Descriptive moments
often find themselves confused
due to circumstance.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Disruptive people
can become a firestorm
inflaming others.

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

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