A Few Things

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a spring looking rainy sort of week these
passed few days, but we had a freeze the other morning
and the plant that Judy bought got frosted. I’m trying
to bring it back to life, but I think she will have to buy
another plant. I bought her a little tricycle plant stand.
It has a holder for two plants. The next time we’ve got
money we might go and buy a couple more plants. We
had only bought the one that got frosted. So, what else
is going on around this place. Well, I hear that my PC
is repaired and on its way back to me. It will be nice to
have access to my pictures that I had failed to copy to
my external hard drive along with a few programs that
I bought that will only work with that stupid Windows 8.
Anyways, then I will be busy hooking it back up and
buying me another mouse being Judy’s started acting
up and so I gave her the one that the Windows 8 PC
used. Judy has been busy this week with her sisters
and other family members cleaning out her brothers
house to make it ready for him when he comes home.
Ricky is doing better. Of course he’s what you might
call a hoarder and they are busy getting rid of stuff
that he’s got an over excess of, such as junk. They
rented a dumpster to put the stuff in. Ricky is going
to be home in a week or so, and Judy and them are
trying to have the house cleaned out and ready for
him when he gets there. After that, it’s up to him.
Judy might go over there from time to time to keep
the house from getting in such bad shape. It’s not
costing her or any of the family any money. Ricky’s
paying for it. Judy’s been looking for a recliner and
sofa along with a few other odds and ends to buy
for his house of course using Ricky’s money. The
stuff he had was all gross from stuff I’d rather not
speak of. Oh well, I’ve seen it before. I have been
having to stay and keep and eye on the boys, plus
I’m in no shape to help. I would just get in the way.
Today is sort of rainy looking. It’s 52 F degrees
and 55 is supposed to be the high. Yep, it’s not a
Texas spring hehehe. It’s still a mite chilly up
this way hehehe. I hear Texas has finally gotten
the rain that it needed. Now if only California and
thereabouts could get some rain they are in dire
need of. OK so next topic. The boys are sound
asleep. Milo is right below me resting his head on
a leg of my chair hehehe. Benny is at his lookout
post upon the recliner. Christian, our youngest
grandson stayed with us last night so he could go
with Judy (granny) to help with Ricky’s house :)
He had to sleep in one of the recliners being we
are still working on getting our futon ready to be
slept on, but not quite there yet hehehe. Benny
slept in one recliner while Christian slept in the
other. I fixed us Eggo waffles and sausage this
morning and went in the living room and asked
do ya want some waffles and sausage and he
opened his eyes up and said where we eating :)
I said in the computer room. We all had some
nice together time before Judy and him headed
out to Ricky’s place a mile down the road. Judy
came home a little while ago with Christian and
Marissa . It seems that Marissa was having
some trouble with her asthma and so I let her
take a puff off of my inhaler being she left hers
at home. Judy was tired as all get out yesterday
when she finally got home to stay. Thank God
for everyone that has come to help her. I wish
I was in better shape and of course was able to
bring the boys, but the house isn’t that big and
I would just be in the way and most assuredly
so would be the boys hehehe. They like to be
under foot :) I forget how many times Judy
and I have tripped over them hehehe. They
love to be with us and check out what we’re
doing LOL. I might take the boys out for a
little walk/run in the field one or two days this
week. I’m sure they will enjoy it. OK so Milo
might not enjoy it, but Benny always loves to
romp in the field in front of our house. Benny
usually heads out ahead of me and then looks
back to see if I’m coming hehehe. Milo will
sometimes come out a ways, but most times
he just walks out a bit and watches Benny and
me and then after a while heads back to the
house and waits. Milo’s not a youngun like
Benny hehehe. I can’t keep up with Benny.
Benny just runs wild in the field while I take
pictures and often a few videos of him. It’s
an experience hehehe. Judy said she was
going to go to Walmart after she got done at
Ricky’s house. We’re needing a few things
like soda’s, bread and whatnot. There’s not
much else going on around here. It’s been
pretty quiet around here with Judy going to
her brothers house for the passed few days
to clean it up and throw away junk that is of
no use. I know she’ll be glad when it’s done.
The poor gal is literally worn out when she
gets home. Thank God her sisters and other
family members came to help. I feel useless,
but I have limitations on what I’m able to do.
Being Ricky’s bathroom is not working at the
moment, Judy and a few have been coming
here to use the toilet. I would be making
tons of trips without a colon and get nothing
done hehehe. Plus the boys need me and old
Milo has a weak bladder. He goes wee just
about as often as I do the other LOL. Sooo,
what else is there to talk about? I keep an
eye down at the floor beneath me to make
sure I don’t run Milo over with my chair and
hurt him. I also look to see if he’s breathing
being at the moment he’s not snoring hehehe.
Yep, he’s just sleeping comfortably feeling
safe where he is. He don’t know how safe he
isn’t while lying under my chair LOL. But of
course I always look before I roll hehehehe.
It’s still 52 F degrees, so it don’t look like
it’s gonna make it to 55 degrees. Oh well,
it’s warm enough for me. It could be colder!
Thank You God for watching over us as we
face our day to day trials of life. Thank You
for always fulfilling our needs in life. Yes we
do get lost in our wants ever so often, but
You’re always there for us with Your Love.
Forgive me for me for my many sins, for
I know I am not sinless in any way. We all
fall into sin, for we are all human and are
weak. Thank You for sending Your Son to
forgive us through His blood. I am thrilled
to know that I will one day join my friends
and family in Heaven that have gone on
before me. Thank You for Your guidance.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin my
search for a word or phrase that I can use
for the title of today’s brand new poem, so
it’s away I go through my recollections to
that little place that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I found me
a decent title and it looks like I have not
used it as of yet. So it’s away we go…..

A Few Things

Life of times
with now and then,
a few things
will then begin.
Mounds of miles
of bumpy roads,
a few things
display the loads.
Painted scenes
of colors bright,
a few things
will come in sight.
Troubled times
that come and go,
a few things
will help you grow.
With each path
we walk on through,
a few things
will start anew.
Truth and Lies
will become clear,
a few things
will then appear.
Thinking deep
we might foresee
a few things
of you and me.
God shows true
what we need learn,
a few things
of time to earn.
For right now
and evermore
a few things
are a swinging door.

There ya go. It might not make any sense, but it’s
all I’ve got for ya hehehe of course aside from all of
the poems and haiku that I wrote yesterday hehehe.
So have I forgotten anything? Milo has moved to a
safer spot finally hehehe. Now he’s parked himself
in front of the door so that I will have to step over
him to get out of here. Oh well, at least he’s moved
from under my chair. That keeps me nervous and
afraid I will run over him with the wheels of my chair.
Benny is in the living room barking. I don’t think
he’s barking at anybody but the neighbors hehehe.
Judy just called and said Christian is coming back
to get his tablet that he left in here. So he should
be here in a short. He just came and left, so it’s
back to writing. Christian said he wants to come
back next weekend. I said sure :) It’s nice having
him here. We all watched TV together last night.
Well, that’s about all I have to ramble about, so
I guess I need to tell you what I tell you almost
every week and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems with one of
them being sort of Christmassy. Also I once again
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. I hope you can find something that you
like. I guess it’s time for me to begin my search
for that not so freaken elusive off switch, but
not before I wish you a most wonderful weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a truly blessings filled
week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do
too. OK, so where’s that silly off switch hiding
this week? Ya silly varmint, you could of tried
a little harder. For Heaven sakes, what made
you think I wouldn’t see ya inside my reader
glasses case? The glasses are in it therefore
it made quite a tight squeeze for ya huh hehehe.
I saw the case wobbling for no reason and said
to myself, he couldn’t be in there could he LOL.
Yep, gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Redundancy

Again and again
so many will try
to change their outcome
the same do or die.
This is redundancy
found in the making
doing the same thing
and always mistaking.
Redundancy viewpoints
created in time
might be the fuses
of futures land mine.
So let the errors
that come day to day
to teach you the lessons
of a much better way.
Sometimes we need to
just turn around
and make our footsteps
to be better found.
Don’t let redundancy
become your stride,
for it might take you
on a real bumpy ride.
Let God to help you
to see what is true
and let Him to change what’s
found within you.

The Windows of Spring

April and May comes
bringing in flowers
blooming attuning
what springtime empowers.
The windows now display
all of its glory
springtime’s arrival
in a colorful story.
Written in stages
as spring birds will sing.
This is what’s found
in the windows of spring.
Words in a story
that many will view
often with flowers
and sweet morning dew.
The windows of spring
are displayed in time
found at the end of
white wintertime.

Beyond A Dream

A hopeful desire
a dream come alive
is what’s beyond
a dream to survive.
Dreams display chances
sometimes to feel,
but often dreams are
not very real.
Ones stuck in dreamland
might just fall prey
to what that’s real
and their day to day.
Don’t let your dreaming
to make matters worse.
Beyond a dream can
turn into curse.
Sometimes our dreamlands
are meant to stay there
and what’s reality
needs not compare.
For many dreamlands
are just merely that
and not what should be
where that you’re at.

Searching For ME

Time becomes cluttered
when I’m searching on
trying to find me
as time moves along.
With every pattern
from every which way
searching for me then
becomes what I may.
My personality
found throughout time
now seems a journey
for me then to find.
Mornings awakened
when I was alone
searching for answers
that I could atone.
Since I’ve grown older
I can sort of see
my stages settings
while searching for me.
I’ve found many pages
of my books devise
displayed with pictures
that aren’t so precise.
Cloudily looking
at where all I’ve been
my searching for me
seeks where to begin.
Doorways as potholes
that I stumbled on
brought me transgressions
that taught right from wrong.
Searching for me then
found me inside
signs of reality
eyes opened wide.
I am a person
that God has endowed
with many blessings
some silent, some loud.
We often search
for the person we are
and it might lead to
what we thought bizarre.
Yet we are different
you might clearly see,
for I have found that,
while searching for me.

That Big C

While months come shining
with their point of view
December brings love
for me and for you.
That big C of blessings
with wonders to find
That Big C of Christmas
from our time to time.
Those past days that might still
live in your heart
a wonderful Christmastime
then does impart.
That big C that special time
that truly brought joy
when you were younger
a little girl or boy.
Those times so magical
for you and for me
live now as Christmastime
yes that big C.
Merry Christmas moments
a holiday style
that big C blessing
brings many a smile.
Scenes we remember
from so long ago
can be as kindling
for much more to show.
That big C time frame
of Decembers date
helps ones so different
to somehow relate.
As time comes closer
that big C displays
wonderful moments
from magical ways.

Shadows of Heartbeats

Time displays people
that might come and go
shadows of heartbeats
in our to and fro.
Ones we’ve forgotten
a shadow might find
and become glimmers
of then that sometime.
Shadows of heartbeats
might come unto you
displaying the things
that you used to do.
Scenes thought forgotten
might somehow enhance
shadows of heartbeats
and their song and dance.
Maybe not so wonderful
those times might be,
but they were needed
to help you to see.
Shadows of heartbeats
your times might expose
the lessons you learned
from what all you chose.

The Winds of Spring

Morning brings sunshine
as winds will blow
while spring displays all
the times without snow.
The winds of spring blowing
as sunshine displays
scenes oh so magical
in its arrays.
Seeming as paintings
from here to afar
the winds of spring blowing
while strumming its guitar.
Songs of nature singing
as the season moves on
while the winds of spring
just sing their famous song.
Breezes in the meadows
as winged birds will play
the winds of spring blowing
a wonderful way.
Sharing all the seedlings
of flowers in the wind
spring gives a journey
for new life to send.
For the winds of spring
blow each year the same
and birds and flowers
recognize and acclaim.
Springs song of seasons
brings forth a new day
found amidst April
and on into May.

An Empty Heart

Someone with holes
in their own heart
might find no way
for true love to start.
A simple life
without gain
an empty heart
will so attain.
Maybe money,
maybe power
but one empty
turns up sour.
An empty heart
from life of times
leaves just sadness
on their minds.
Fill your heart up
with true love
that is from
Lord God Above.
Let not empty
find you stood
without love
of times so good.
An empty heart
can only grow
to a dismal
ebb and flow.
Let your seasons
find a start
to fill up
an empty heart.

Reactions

Things might happen
to cause us to scream
sometimes a moment,
sometimes a dream.
Our reactions
might paint a large sign
that is of weakness
within our design.
Often a person
will anger us true
and cause reactions
the wrong way for you.
Life displays truly
our daily weakness
sometimes ones see as
what’s just our meekness
For many people
are bullies so mean
to see reactions
and all in between.
It’s our reactions
that often acquire
lifetimes of torment
from unruly fire.
So now try better
to take some control
of your reactions
as life does unfold.

True Passion

Love is a word
so many will say
not truly meaning
it in a way.
For true passion
brings forth a smile
even when anger
finds them a while.
True is the thought
of passion and God
as He displays
what we should applaud.
We need to learn
true passion inside
and learn to love
no matter the ride.
Let lose of anger,
find now some peace
within true passion
of moments release.
Don’t let your anger
to dig a deep hole.
Find now true passion,
let God save your soul.

Haiku
for May 16, 2015

Today might seem wrong,
but it’s what that needs to be
to find tomorrow.

While many worry
others will just do there job
as best that they can.

Left over feelings
could become extra baggage
that you should let go.

The past meets today
bringing choices to the light
as things we should learn.

Beyond the sunlight
holds the key to dark of night
hidden within time.

Violet sunsets
shimmer through the evening clouds
as paint being mixed.

Without a moment,
now might not even exist
for it was replaced.

Enveloping time
is a chore that’s hard to do,
for time continues.

Lost in a forest
might display some fears of things
that you knew not of.

As daytime finds rest
the night comes alive with stars
and moon shining bright.

Restless emotions
might bring forth many problems
from our impatience.

Life’s expectancy
is so often mistaken
for only God knows.

Truth in its format
stands tall in the very end,
for lies do not last.

Predicting weather
needs ones to understand it
and admit mistakes.

A dream that comes true
needs to be what’s meant to be
or it might go bad.

Harboring secrets
that ones really need to know
could become nightmares.

Gradient hillsides
often allow a landslide
so don’t stay beneath.

Weekends bring changes
that many cannot cope with
due to addictions.

The evening draws nigh
as the sun slowly fades off
leaving dark of night.

While waiting for time
take a look at what’s right now
and make do with it.

Looking for someone
might show them standing right there
while you’re looking on.

The meaning of life
gets lost in our perception,
No one truly knows.

I Took A Picture

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
&
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

Well, it’s been another spring looking week up here
filled with sunshine and rain. It rained a little bit this
morning. It might rain Monday through Wednesday,
but after that it’s supposed to be sunny even through
next weekend. People keep asking me if there’s any
snow on the ground. Nope, at least not around here.
Yet there is though few a little straggling snow patches
on Mars Hill and Drews Hill. There is also some snow
to be seen on a few of the mountains, but none down
here ground level. So what else is happening around
this place. Judy and I went to the Anah Shrine Circus
Friday and we took tons of pictures. Of course most
of them came out blurry due to the lighting in the place.
We had a blast and I bought Judy a purple balloon in
the shape of an man sized alien hehehe. He had to
ride in the back seat on the way home. It took up the
whole back seat LOL. Anyways, when we got home,
we began looking through the pictures we took to see
if we got any good ones. Yep, we got a few. I filled
up my 2 gig camera card. Judy’s camera is a newer
one and it suffices a larger card so she has a 4 gig
card in hers and she still had plenty of room for more
pictures :) No matter, we took hundreds of photos.
I went through them last night to pick out a few to
put in my stationery. That took me quite a while :)
Yesterday, Judy went over to her sister’s house
to watch her mom while her sister and hubby went
out for a while. It’s hard for them to be able to get
out of the house together with her mom needing to
be taken care of. So Judy goes over there time to
time to give them a breather. Their brother Ricky
is now in a nursing home in northern Maine about
80 miles north of us. He seems to be doing as well
as to be expected. Another of Judy’s sisters will be
taking him some clothes up there this week. Today
is Mother’s Day and I fixed Judy Biscuits and gravy
for breakfast. I think I made too much, because we
both found ourselves getting full very quickly LOL.
Yep, the Pearce’s Place is teeming with life. Our
little neighborhood deer is still seen visiting us in
front of our house in the field. I think we’ve got
plenty of pictures of him or her hehehe. Benny
and Milo pay it no mind. They will often just sit
and watch it from afar. I guess Benny doesn’t
sense any real danger so he doesn’t bark at it.
The funniest thing happened a little bit ago. Judy
was getting dressed just in case her daughters
came over to visit and Benny and Milo thought
she was leaving just as she used to do. It was
so cute. Milo went outside and jumped up on
the car door and looked back at her as if to say
I wanna go with you this time hehehe. Benny
was just watching and waiting to see what was
going to happen. I came and coaxed Milo back
in hehehe. They love their mom. I guess it
was their way of saying HAPPY MOTHERS
DAY mom. They wanted to spend it with her.
I think they know now that she’s staying home
today. Judy’s at her PC busy writing her new
book. It’s a scifi story. Her and I spent one
evening trying to come up with some names
to use in the book. You know, alien names :)
Anyways, she’s behind me just typing away.
I know she’ll be working on it for quite a while.
She stayed up last night writing after I finally
retired to the bedroom to get a little sleep.
Of course I stayed up and watched cartoons
for most of the morning until I nodded off for
a bit. She came to bed around 5 AM. I can’t
wait to read her new book, of course after she
is done writing it. I just know it’s going to be
a winner. I always say that we need to use our
imaginations from time to time, or life can get
rather boring. For that matter, dreamers were
the ones that brought us to the technological
age that we’re at now. So, imagine away, for
you never know if what you’re imagining will
maybe one day come true. Just make sure
you keep a firm grip in reality so to not allow
yourself to appear nuts :) Yeppers, it’s good
to let your imagination have a venture from
time to time, but don’t let it overcome you.
Oh yea, I took a picture of the tall man at the
circus and he bent down and gave me his card
telling me to send him the picture. He wants
to use it on his home page. We got a few of
him throughout the circus that I’m gonna send
him. His name is Chris. My mom asked me if
Judy tried to leave me at the circus and I said
I didn’t have an act LOL. There was one guy
walking behind the horses and elephants with
a bucket to catch the poop hehehe. He missed
every once in a while and got out the shovel 😉
Yes, we had a pretty nice week aside from early
in the week when Judy’s mom had a spell and
became unresponsive due to her diabetes, but
they got her sugar back up. Judy had driven
to the hospital only to find that the emergency
staff that came to the house were able to take
care of her. So Judy ended up over Trudy’s
house and then back home breathing a sigh
of relief. Of course we all know that our time
in these fleshly bodies is limited and we are
soon to pass on to another realm of existence.
What place awaits you? Heaven or Hell? Do
you know Jesus. Have you let God to come in
your life to become your guide. I know, even
if you have God in your life, you will still be
found with problems because that is humanity.
We each will make mistakes, but through God’s
Son we are forgiven. Find the true meaning of
life that is not just here in these bodies, but
our spirits that will join our new healthy bodies
when we pass on. Get to know Jesus today.
Now, with that said, I guess it’s time for me
to be taking my little trip back through all that
I’ve written here to that place of my recollection
to see if I can find 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 lil place I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I may of
found a decent title and now after checking
I see that I have not used it as of yet, but it
shall be used today :) Here goes.

I Took A Picture

A page is turned
from then to now
a story told
to tell me how.
I took a picture
then to see
those many times
my mom and me.
With hearts united
daily found
my mom and me
went round and round.
We had our share
of times discord,
but found true love
through our sweet Lord.
We joined our hands
and held them tight
I took a picture
of that sight.
With mom and me
and my wife too
I took a picture
of that view.
I love you mom
right to the core,
we’ve grown with love
forevermore.
I took a picture
and now I see
the times you were
right there for me

OK so there’s my Mother’s Day poem. Of course
I wrote another one yesterday, but you’ll see it in
my poetry section below :) So, I think I’ve told you
all that has gone on around here this passed week,
I might of missed something, but I cannot think of
anything. Milo is lying in the floor in a doggy bed
right between Judy and I. I think he’s happy that
Judy is staying home today. It was just so bizarre
that he would go and jump up on the car door and
park himself right by the backdoor. That is totally
out of his norm hehehe. Benny is normally the one
that does that :) I guess he really wanted to be
with mom on Mother’s Day hehehe. Well I don’t
think there is much else to tell you other than the
normal and that is what I tell you almost every
week and that is, I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems with one of them
a Christmas poem and the other a Mother’s Day
poem. I also once again wrote 22 more haiku for
all of my haiku lovers out there :) I hope you can
find one or two of either or both that you like :)
So, now I reckon it’s time for me to begin my
search for that not so elusive off switch, but not
before I wish you a most joyful weekend and a
truly blessings filled week. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now, where’s that
freaking off switch attempting to hide this week?
LOL I see ya you silly thing. Hiding behind my
foot grinder wasn’t one of your best places to
hide. It might of been if you had been hiding
behind it and not just the sanding pad hehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Heaven Awaits

You and I together
watch time ticking on
our lives together
as passed days are gone.
We are God’s children
you and I together
linked by His passion
that last on forever.
We’ve seen many days
we wished were not true,
but those days began
to bring me to you.
Sometimes some problems
will start life to live
while Heaven awaits us
a new life to give.
So as we’re united
with each brand-new dawn
our lives together
will just continue on.
Within Heaven’s gateway
holds healthy new life
found for a family
and husband and wife.
Even those before us
will be there smiling true
as Heaven awaits us

Our Time

The moments we see,
the moments we do
our time explores
sometime so anew.
Often our footsteps
that just gather dust
become as our time then
the moments we must.
Our time continues
even when we die,
for we continue
in Heaven so high.
We each have moments
that become our view
our time together
for me and for you.
Sometimes our vision
is clouded by thoughts
our time becomes then
what all we lost.
Let lose those troubles
of yesterdays time
for time continues
with better to find.

Some Are

Yes many mothers
are much more in lives
some are our mothers
and some are our wives.
Some create lifestyles
the turning of age
and some then help with
turning of a page.
Some are our honeys
our wives Heaven sent
and some are our mothers
to teach what love meant.
Often our mothers
will just be our mom
that we will miss when
their time is gone.
Yet our dear mothers
and wives surely so
become as what some are
to help us to grow.
Yes even loved ones
a wife that you’ve found
might even be that
times solid ground.
So show your mother
and honey some love
Mothers Day now then
and passed then thereof.

Lost In A Heartbeat

Found in a dreamland
time continues on
lost in a heartbeat
dusk unto dawn.
Sleep brings alive
those times I remember
lost in a heartbeat
found in an ember.
Scenes I recognize
of my yesteryears
often will enter in
and create some tears.
Everything’s changing
dreams come alive
lost in a heartbeat
dreams start to drive.
Making my memories
become something more
lost in a heartbeat
through another door.
Then as it’s ending
the dream becomes clear
lost in a heartbeat
of my yesteryear.
Some things I’d forgotten
on times winding street
now are some dreams lost
in a heartbeat.
Those days with my daddy
and my Paw Paw too
got lost in a heartbeat
of then thereunto.
My mother then also
with love then so sweet
and my grandmother
with things good to eat.
Lost in a heartbeat
finds now a way
to become found in
my dreams now today.

Strumming Life’s Guitar

While many go singing,
some just strum along
to every lifestyle
that fits in their song.
Strumming life’s guitar
is a seasonal way
bringing then so many
to their day to day.
Seeing all the colors
of a string fest design
while they go strumming
in their time to time.
Some hit some bad notes
while others fit right in
strumming life’s guitar
from where all they’ve been.
Many have a drumbeat
with a rhythmic style
while some go strumming
and connect in a while.
Finding a connection
from journeys afar
many find the music
while strumming life’s guitar.

Long Ago Christmas

Passed days of Christmas
might seem to fade from view
as we go onwards
just ignoring what to do.
Long ago Christmas
is a time I can recall.
A time that’s so wonderful
and stands up so tall.
The Christmases I remember
are those times with mom and dad
long ago faraway
the greatest times I had.
Those wonderful times remembered
still live alive in me
and I’ve added them to now
in our yearly Christmas tree.
Long ago Christmas was
a time to go exploring
all of the Christmas lights
that I thought was so adoring.
Now today my Christmases
are great in their own way,
for they’re spent with my loving wife
and dogs that wonderous day.

After The Day Is Done

When the sun has ceased its shining
and the night’s begun
life begins a new way
after the day is done.
The stars come out to play
in the skies of dark of night
after the day is done
and the sun has ceased its light.
Even found so big and round
is that wondrous moon
after the day is done
for many then to swoon.
Night becomes a journey
for so many then to soar
after the day is done
for ones to then adore.
Ones begin a midnight quest
a journey through the stars
after the day is done
within their dreams memoirs.
They stop to take a breather
on the moon so late at night
after the day is done
and find themselves in flight.
A lunar vision setting
after the day is done
brings the scenes of twilight
that’s without any sun.

Only You

Lord God fills my lifestyle
with time that’s so complete.
He’s given many chances
to feel my true heartbeat.
God you’ve shown me truly
how I am to see,
but I still so often
am blind as I can be.
Only You Lord Jesus
can help me learn so true
what I am to say now
and what I am to do.
Yet I know I’ll falter,
for I’m a human being
with my carnal instincts
that cloud my daily seeing.
But Lord God I am trying
to do the best I can
to be the best perception
of what’s a Godly man.

I’ve Been Searching

My old self and my journey
found me many times
filled with many speed bumps
and a few land mines.
I’ve been searching always
just looking for a way
to get passed all the problems
that I see day to day.
Often I am crying,
but yet it’s all inside
for I sometimes feel that
teardrops I must hide.
Yet my story goes forth
with searching what to do
when I am not happy
and feeling really blue.
I’ve been searching truly
through my passed to now
and I’ve found an answer
that will show me how.
The tears of which I’m shedding
are those I need to share,
for there are so many
the same found everywhere.
We each will have our struggles
teardrops falling down,
but just know that Jesus
can help remove that frown.
He gives us many people
to share and tell our woe
so if you have been searching,
this you need to know.
Don’t hold those tears within you.
Let ones see you cry,
then you’ll feel much better
in your by and by.
Yet don’t be a whiner
just crying all the time,
because you might discover
there’s not a friend to find.
Yes truly I’ve been searching,
but found so often true
the One we need to search for
is found there within You.

Field Of Dreams

Passionate viewpoints
rivers and streams
also are found in
a field of dreams.
A story that’s written
with flowers and more
found in a field then
green grassy floor.
Each scene’s united
as stories from seed
planted with passion
for many to read.
Each as a rhythm
of scenic design
a field of dreams
that’s found so divine.
An ocean of flavors
with shadows to see
a field of dreams
for you and for me.
This is but a journey
for eyes looking on
in a field of dreams
that’s Heavenly drawn.
Earth scented flowers
with grasses that sway
join in the journey
day after day.
A field of dreams
can bring you a smile
with but a glimpse
of a momentous while.

Haiku
for May 9, 2015

Tomorrow’s sunrise
is determined by today
and not just the sky.

Living in a lie
could find you standing alone
in identity.

Love of perception
might misrepresent the view
and only show lies.

The seasons journey
begins with a change of date
and all that you see.

Looking at the sky
will only show you portions
of what that’s to come.

Life in the fast lane
will one day cause you problems
as time catches up.

Book written journeys
only display many words
and not the journey.

Lines on a old face
will become more apparent
as time pays its toll.

The wisdom of owls
is an overrated thought
for they are not wise.

A timekeepers watch
needs to always be wound up
to show correctly.

Words of a wise man
will come from so many things
of which they did wrong.

The door of today
often opens with a creak
aches and pains exposed.

Conceiving anger
can spawn a true tornado
within your own mind.

Life as a spider
finds many webs related
to catching its food.

A tall tree of time
grows in a deep dark forest
as it is exposed.

Many find a journey
as nothing but a problem
and others see good.

Stillness of the day
becomes a windy journey
as breezes blow in.

Remembering past days
could awaken so much sadness
so don’t relive it.

Monetary things
can become overwhelming
if not seen clearly.

Beyond what you see
is a spirit world of life
that comes after death.

Links to our problems
can become obvious threads
that we might not see.

Morning times dewdrops
bring life to flowers and trees
that soon dissipate.

Stuck To The Barrel

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a great week with spring finally showing
its face :) Yeppers, the snow has all melted away
and we are even having visits from a friendly little
deer. It’s been coming back every day. Judy and
I have begun taking pictures of it. It looks directly
at us while we take pictures, but we don’t seem to
bother it. Benny and Milo pay it no mind hehehe.
Anyways, we’ve enjoyed watching it. Not sure if
it’s a doe or buck being it is still quite young and
I ain’t getting close enough to look LOL. It’s mom
might be in the woods watching it. So that’s all for
now on Bamby hehehe. Judy and I went shopping
yesterday and then stopped off at Houlton Farms
Dairy and got her and I some ice cream. It was a
beautiful day for eating ice cream and obviously
everybody else in town thought the same hehehe.
Yep, that place was busy. I got a hot fudge sundae
and Judy got a banana split. It’s 66 F degrees and
the sun’s shining bright today. It was supposed to
get up the around 78 F degrees today, but I don’t
think it’s gonna make it. It might make 71 though.
In any sense, it’s a beautiful spring day, but the
trees are still lacking in the leaf department LOL.
They’ll start growing soon. I can see buds on the
branches so leaves are soon to follow. Judy and
I even saw some seagulls in town LOL. I think
they were lost hehehe. Nah, we see them all of
the time in town, but not during the winter LOL.
It be too darned cold for em then :) I don’t know
where they hang out, but they’re not in town or
at least I haven’t seen them in the cold of winter.
I think Benny misses the snow, but it looks like
he’s enjoying the sunshine and warmth. Judy
went over to her sister Trudy’s house today so
that her and her hubby could get out of the house
together and do something. Benny wanted to go
with Judy so he’s with her now. Milo is sleeping
right behind me in the floor. I went and took a
few pictures of our deer. It’s back out there just
wandering around eating grass. It looks over
at me from time to time, but then continues with
it’s eating. I guess it’s not bothered by us here.
Yep, we have a pretty lively place around here.
LOL, not really! I had to open up the window
in here. It was getting sort of warm and stuffy.
I’m tired as heck right now, because my body
was aching all morning and I couldn’t get any
sleep, but I did finally nod off after I got so tired
that even a Earth Quake wouldn’t of bothered
me hehehe. But yet, it was a short nap, being
Judy had to get up and so shortly after she got
up, I got up and fixed her and I some cereal.
No telling when she’ll be home. It all depends
on when Dennis and Trudy get back home from
their day out together. Our new neighbors have
been settling in. I’m planning on taking my conga
drums outside in the next few days and doing a
little music video. I haven’t done one in a while.
Judy and I are planning on going to the circus
in the next few days, but not sure if we’ll make
it. If we do, I’ll bring my camera and take a
few pictures if they’ll let me :) LOL Judy might
try to leave me there. She’s said from time to
time that I belonged in a circus. Or was that a
zoo? No matter hehehe, it ain’t gonna happen.
Nope, I ain’t hanging with the monkeys hehehe.
I took my daughter Jamye to the zoo back when
she was younger and when we passed by the
ape cage, she said daddy they look like you :)
Yes I have long hairy arms, but no I am not an
ape hehehe. OK so next topic. I’m still waiting
on the results on my PC that’s in Texas being
repaired. I’m sure they will do their best as they
have always done. They did inform me that the
Gateway mother board would not suffice another
processor, so I guess I’ll have to stick with the
1.4 GHZ that it has. Then I asked them if they
could put in a faster video card and they said
they would look into it, but said it had extra
slots for more RAM, so they might add more
to it. We’ll see what they are able to do to get
it up and running at least a little faster hehehe.
Mandy told me that she thought Ron was going
to be able to get my info off of my hard drive
and put it on a new one or fix the old one that
I think had some bad boot sectors. Needless
to say, life goes on. So what else is in the news
of the Pearce’s Place? I ordered a couple sonic
squeaker toys for the boys. Mostly for Milo
being he’s hard of hearing and cannot hear the
regular noise making dog toys . The sonic is
supposed to be only heard by them. I bought
them at Coupaw.com. We’ve gotta take care
of them boys and make sure they’re happy :)
It’s 70 F degrees now and 3:30 PM. Nope I
don’t think it’s gonna make it to 78 F degrees,
but 70 will do hehehe. 78 F is too warm for me.
One of the reasons I don’t miss Texas is due
to the overkill on the heat scenario every year.
It was literally killing me being I dehydrate
real easy due to the loss of my colon and lack
of small intestines. Plus I am very hot natured.
Although as I have grown older, I have found
I do get cold more than I used to, but I still
can’t handle the heat. Warm weather also
makes my asthma worse. Yes cold weather
also affects my asthma, but most times only
in a blizzard or when I’m struggling through
the snow hehehe. I have one finger on my
left hand that gives me the dickens when it
gets too cold. The others I have no problem.
I got the index finger on my left hand frost
bitten back years ago when I was working
at Rabel Inc. down in Terrell TX. I carried
some barrels outside using the fork lift and
when I reached around to lift them off of
the skid, I stuck to the barrel. The index
finger on my left hand got the worst of it :)
I stayed stuck to the barrel for a few hours
until someone noticed that I never came
back in LOL. This of course was during the
winter hehehe. So, what else is there to
ramble about? I’ve got our little portable
air conditioner ready to turn on when the
days get too warm and sticky hehehehehe.
It has a dehumidifier setting on it that we
often use more than the cooling setting
The dehumidifier settings usually cools the
house better than the cooling setting. It
uses the moisture in the air and blows out
cool non humid air. God has kept His Hand
on our household and protected us as He
has always. Yes we have problems from
time to time and our struggles almost wear
us down, but He gives us strength to go
on. My granddaughter Sami is in need of
prayer. She’s not doing too well. Please
keep her and my daughter Jamye in your
prayers. I wish I could be there for them,
but life just doesn’t offer me that ability.
Jamye, I love you and Sami bunches :)
I’m sure God is doing what He needs to
do. Often it’s not what we want, but it is
the best He does, so always have faith.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be taking
my little venture back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find me 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 found a fairly decent title and now
after checking I see that I have not used
it yet, so used it shall be today hehehe.
Here goes.

Stuck To The Barrel

Seamless the time frames
of yesterdays chores
some might seem endless
with life’s swinging doors.
Stuck to the barrel
of times torment waste
sometimes we might just
react then in haste.
Hurrying blindly
making things worse
stuck to the barrel
might seem like a curse.
Yet with our choices
of patterns we find
there might be lessons
in a barrels design.
Stuck to the barrel
of timeless perception
you might discover
a seamless connection.
Doing the same things
expecting a change
stuck to the barrel
does not rearrange.
Change up your format
of daily times peril
and you’ll find lesser times
stuck to the barrel.

OK, so there ya go. I hope my rambling didn’t
bore ya to tears and maybe you understood the
poem a little bit. Judy and Benny just walked
in. LOL Benny’s a tired pup. I bet he had fun
playing with his Yorki cousins. He’s lying in the
floor with Milo now and he is already asleep :)
Judy is browsing the Internet now. I might need
to hurry and get this done so that we can eat.
I’m getting a little hungry. That bowl of cereal
has pretty much been flushed in the toilet LOL.
In other words it’s already run its course in me.
Without a colon there’s not much that sticks
with me. Of course by looking at me you would
think otherwise hehehe. The medicines they
gave me back in 1994 and 95 are what that
put this weight on me. At that time steroids
were the only thing they knew of to deal with
Ulcerative Colitis and it made me swell up and
gain weight. Now days due to my bad feet
and legs I am unable to do much exercise,
but I do what I can. Most is with me walking
out to check the mail or to just walk around
taking pictures. It’s painful, but I have to
do that or I will get to where I cannot walk
at all, so I shall continue on. LOL Judy
just went to the bathroom and Milo is now
scratching on the bathroom door and barking
trying to get her to come out hehehehehe.
He is so freaken silly 😉 I believe it’s time
for me to be telling you what I tell you
every week and that is I wrote some more
poems and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems
with 1 of them being sort of Christmassy.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of my
haiku lovers out there. I hope you find
at least 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 wonderful weekend a blessings
filled week. Remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. OK, so where are ya
you little varmint? LOL I see ya hiding.
Right there behind my tissue box that is
unstable and now wobbling due to you
leaning up against it and peeking over it.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo

Oh yea, I accidentally wrote 1 too many
poems,so there is ONE extra making the
total to be 11 not 10 :)

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

Arm In Arm

The future beholds us
watching from a cloud
arm in arm standing
true love endowed.
Showers of blessings
within our view
arm in arm displays
me now with you.
Angels united
as flavors of God
watching waiting
from there so abroad.
Cloud looking hillsides
with us in a trance
thinking of past life
and our song and dance.
Two together angels
we search through the skies
arm in arm there then
as we do apprize.
Looking beyond there
what times had foretold
arm in arm you and I
better than gold.

I wrote this poem as a sort future poem for
when Judy and I find our pathways to Heaven.

As Rain Falls Down

Those April showers
display such a sight
on through the day
and into the night.
As rain falls down
it makes things wet
with its own time
we cannot forget.
April with showers
that display the gain
found amidst now
with moments of rain.
Seasonal journeys
which April displays
as rain falls down
the coming of days.
So as the day ends
with all that I see
I thank the rains
for falling so free.
Giving mother nature
waters to grow
flowers to bloom
and rivers to flow.
As rain falls down
my thoughts come alive
how the snow melts
and birds then arrive.
Seasonal counting
brings me the sight
as rain falls down
each day and each night.

Whirling Round

The world’s a turning
whirling true
around and around
changing its view.
Seasonal stories
with up ways and down
are with the Earth
just whirling around.
Sometimes with snowflakes,
sometimes with rain
whirling around
again and again.
Often the seasons
change their detail
whirling around
as new days set sail.
Pathways of thresholds
that open and close
often find doorways
that sort of oppose.
Rains found with snowflakes
and icicles too
often are found as
what many view.
Sometimes the seasons
of yesterdays page
whirling around then
changes the stage.
The axis is shifted
changing our view
whirling around
of then thereunto.

Kept Me Safe

Passed days of childhood
I see now real clear
a whirring fan in the night
that I could hear.
A security blanket in way
that made that great sound
in the night with my night light
where peace was found.
A teddy bear a fluffy bear
also with me
kept me safe with whirring fan
so peacefully.
My mom and dad said that God
was always right there
and He also kept me safe
and heard my prayer.
My childhood memories
still live close to mind
as all the wonderful things
safely combined.
Now as I’m reminiscing
with smile on my face
I see how mom and dad
truly kept me safe.

Tomorrow’s Thoughts

My passed found
tomorrow’s thoughts
left me standing
alone and lost.
Losing today in
what’s not here
tomorrow’s thoughts
turn yesteryear.
Things that passed by
while I stood
with tomorrow’s
neighborhood.
Often losing
my now today’s
leaves me standing
in a haze.
Tomorrow’s thoughts
become the past
as they turn to
shadows cast.
Lengthy thinking
what’s not here
leaves me stood
with yesteryear.
Due to losing
where and when
and not seeing
time agin.

Sunshine Comes Shining

Spring comes with showers
of April desires,
then May comes in with
more it acquires.
Sunshine comes shining
with its radiant view
displaying everything
dawns day anew.
Pictured as rays of light
shining so bright
sunshine comes shining
with its own delight.
Laughing little light beams
bring forth their shine
that is God given
as your days and mine.
Passionate displays
the sun is designing
while it comes daily as
sunshine comes shining.

Mundane Moments

Times we’ve gotten used to
the daily routines
finds us so often
just doing dumb things.
Those mundane moments
that often display
will make so many to
forget to pray.
As time goes ticking
with minutes we see
we might find mundane
our own history.
Allowing yourself to
never find change
brings mundane moments
that others see strange.
For it’s the changes
in life’s daily course
that helps us grow with
a momentous source.
Let yourself grow now
passed now today
with mundane moments
of lesser that way.

My Scenic Christmases

Those times we went driving
and looking around
at the decorations
found all over town.
My scenic Christmases
were road driven seas
lights that were lit up
on houses and trees.
Each house with beauty
sometimes in the yard
that could of been
on a Hallmark card.
Through all my history
I searched to find
Christmastimes beauty
in my scenic mind.
My scenic Christmases
live still today,
but now with white snow
a wonderful way.
For in my passed days
white did not show
because in Texas then
it did not snow.
Memories are growing
with each Christmastime
as I continue to
see them sublime.

Despite The Weather

My own life of times
from days long ago
found me with rhymes
so bitter with woe.
Things I had gone through
despite the weather
brought me to misery
less a forgetter.
Times I’d forgotten
that one day came back
just like a choo-choos
time railroad track.
Often making journeys
down memory lane
despite the weather
that now does attain.
Scenes seem recorded
as my own lifestyle
despite the weather
now finds me a smile.
For I have survived
those momentous times
despite the weather
and many land mines.
Now I am finding
those times long ago
taught me the lessons
I needed to know.

A Systematic Breath

A breath found with conclusions
as so many breathe
is what’s systematically
making many grieve.
Moments found in patterns
written in the mind
a systematic breath will breathe
each moment out of line.
Taking strides precautions
that might just seem too weird
as a systematic breath breathed
that seems too stiffly steered.
Driven by their OCD
and systematic view
many find their life and times
a little bit askew.
For a systematic breath then
is good from time to time
if it is not always
found within your mind.
A little bit loose planning
can bring ones joyous gain
as it shows surprises
that plans cannot attain.

Postponed Occurrence

An ironic moment
of then there about
might of been postponed
without a doubt.
A postponed occurrence
that time brought ahead
might seem ironic
when it’s done and said.
For when postponing
you might find so true
what your postponing
you might need to do.
So then postponing
becomes later date
of what that maybe then
just could not wait.
A postponed occurrence
might then just become
later a lesson
of what needed done.

Haiku
for May 2, 2015

Springtime has arrived
as it points out its beauty
in flowers and trees.

Evenings setting sun
brings forth a starry night sky
sometimes with the moon.

As a painter paints
he discloses inner feelings
found in the brushstrokes.

Without forgiveness
no one would go to Heaven
for we all have sinned.

Linings of a coat
are so often never seen,
but they keep you warm.

A heart that’s broken
finds it hard to love again,
but time can heal it.

God loves everyone
for many wrong doers can change
if they find the truth.

Losing a loved one
is not a true loss at all,
for Heaven awaits.

The day moves forward
leaving shadows of itself
found in the future.

Limiting yourself
might become your own downfall,
for growth is beyond.

Dismal rainy days
can become as pure rainbows
painted in your mind.

Without yesterday
today and tomorrow are
without the lessons.

Trying too quickly
to walk on through a doorway
could find you despair.

Looking in the field
I see a young deer walking
grazing on the grass.

The fan blades turning
make a sort of whirring sound
found as hypnotic.

Scenes within springtime
come alive with sights and sounds
joined by aromas.

While the day moves on
it’s always painting pictures
of here there about.

Losing direction
needs us to stop and take heed,
then seek the right way..

Not allowing God
to be a part of your life
could find you Hell bent.

Too many people
speaking too many choices
can cause confusion.

Today brings choices
with either happy or sad
to live within us.

Pain is a venture
that many deal with each day,
for they have no choice.

My Squabbles

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a sort of spring looking passed few days with all
of the snow slowly melting away. We’ve been getting a lot
of rain to replace the snow as usual LOL. It’s 51 F degrees
right now at 2:40 PM. Not too awful bad. Although we’re
still having a few 30 degree nights ever so often, but that’s
not too bad. The river ice has finally broken up and isn’t
causing floods as it was a week or so ago. Yeppers, it’s
beginning to look a lot like springtime, but so far, there
aren’t any green leaves sprouting. Nope only buds, but
I’m sure that in just a matter of days there will be green
leaves on the trees. Of course we do have our evergreen
trees that are always green LOL. So what else is there
to yammer about hehehe? Judy is home with me today :)
Her sister quit her job at Walmart to stay home and take
care of her mom. Judy will go over there ever so often to
give them a break so Trudy and Dennis can get out of the
house together and do something. But for now, Judy is
no longer going over there on Sundays to watch her mom.
Benny and Milo were sort of confused. They had gotten
used to her leaving like clock work every Sunday. I’m sure
they’ll get used to her being home hehehe. It looks like we
might get some more rain today and the next few days :)
We’ve got our little lake in front of our home as we always
do every year. One year our neighbors kids got their dads
canoe and rowed back and forth in our little lake hehehe.
I think it was June 27 2012. Benny had a blast watching
the kids and even getting in the middle of things out in
the water with me hehehe. It was a few months before
we got Milo. Though I’m fairly sure that Milo would of
just sat on the sidelines and watched until he was ready
to go back inside. He might of surprised us and went
splashing in, but we will never know, because all those
kids have since moved away. Both families have moved
and now we have some new neighbors, but they seem to
be much older than Judy and I. More like the age of my
mom or thereabouts. Anyways, Benny and Milo enjoy
each others company and they both love to be around us.
LOL ya can’t pet one without petting the other and the
same goes for holding one of them hehehe. It’s getting
a little cooler outside. Right now it’s 48 F degrees and
dropping. Yep, this is our spring. It’s supposed to start
getting a little warmer by next week. We shall see LOL.
For now the temperature will be bouncing up and down
as it does each year at this time from the 30’s to the 50’s.
Judy is behind me writing a Sci-fi story on her PC. She’s
a great writer. I love her two books that she wrote a
while back. Yes, we are both writers. I just prefer to
not go through the hassle of trying to find which poems
to put in the book and having to edit them all hehehe.
I’ll stick with this manner of publishing for now. Maybe
one day I’ll get a hold of the publishing agency and
go through my poems and start editing, but not any
time soon LOL. My friend Ben Geurts in Holland
bought the website that I use to publish my journal
on and he also publishes my Christmas poetry on his
Old Fashioned Christmas site. Oh yea, my friend
in New York has my Christmas poems recited on
his yearly Public Access TV Christmas broadcast.
I think I’m fine for now. LOL enough about me :)
Milo is lying in the floor enjoying having his mom
home with us. Benny though is back at his station
upon the watch tower recliner in the living room LOL.
It seems that our neighbors have their grandson
living with them and he apparently loves to race
his engine. Benny starts barking at him every time
he starts revving his motor hehehe. It don’t bother
me none being I will be outside this summer with
my conga drums recording hehehe. Payback time :)
LOL our previous neighbors enjoyed my conga
playing. As a matter of fact they would often come
over and watch and listen. They might also. Who
knows! First we’ll see how long they hang around.
They might not even last till summer. We have
had a few neighbors come and go lasting only a
few months. Our landlord isn’t the greatest. He
does tend to let things go from time to time LOL.
Oh well, life goes on. There are worse things to
bicker about hehehe. I just went and got Judy
and I some cookies to munch on. Now I’ve got
crumbs in my keyboard hehehe. They’ll shake
out :) This keyboard is waterproof and it looks
like it’s crumb proof too :) I have yet to of heard
from my computer friends in Texas about my PC.
They might not of gotten a chance to look at it
yet. Century Computer does stay rather busy.
Anyways, I’m sure Ron and Mandy will get to
it when they can and hopefully be able to fix it.
I had already purchased a few programs and all
on it that will only work on Windows 8. Not that
Windows 8 was worth a darn hehehe, but I was
making do with it as best that I could. Now I
hear they are coming out with Windows 10 that
is supposed to work a lot better than Windows 8.
It wouldn’t take much hehehe. As I had only had
the Windows 8 for a year or so before it died LOL.
It kept shutting down for no good reason and
it’s Windows Live email would retrieve my email
even though I had it set to NOT retrieve it LOL.
The Windows Live mail would also not let me use
my grouped emails as my Outlooks Express does.
If I were to use Windows live to send my article
I would have to send them all ONE AT A TIME.
That would take me till Christmas to just send
one freaking weekly journal hehehe. No matter,
I’ll survive. We’ll survive. Judy, I and the boys
are always with The Hand of God watching over
us. God put this family together and I’m sure He
will always make sure that we have all that we
need. We might want more, but our needs will
be met as they have been. Thank You God for
always being there for us and not turning a deaf
ear to my squabbles. Your Son Jesus Christ
gets an ear full from time to time as pressures
of life come upon us, but He stays and listens
and gives strength and tools to move forward.
I reckon it’s time for me to begin my little quest
back through all that I’ve written here to see if
I can find a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem and so
it’s away I go to that place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
It looks like I may have found a decent title and
now after checking I see that I have not used it
as of yet, but used it shall be today Mwahahaha.
Here goes :)

My Squabbles

Bickering moments
a squabble or two
become a mountain
found in our view.
My squabbles daily
are not oh so large
that I can’t let God
to have and take charge.
Often our portions
of daily desires
become as squabbles
that turn into fires.
Burning up pathways
bringing on cue
bickering moments
a squabble or two.
So now I’ve learn how
to give God control
some of my squabbles
that times paid its toll.
Yet I know surely
that I will still find
times with my squabbles
that are with mankind.
For I am human
and still make mistakes,
but through my squabbles
learn it’s give and take.
Letting God help me
with now and agin
through all my squabbles
to let Jesus in.

So there ya go. Did my rambling bore ya to tears LOL?
I hope not. Also I hope you enjoyed the poem and maybe
even understood it hehehe. Life is a mystery and so is
my writing :) Ya never know what I will write about next.
I do have my silly modes ya know. But of course this
poem was not one of them. Milo is up and getting a drink
of water. LOL next he will be knocking at the door with
his paw saying he’s gotta go pee hehehehe. Go figure :)
Judy went to let him out for me. It’s great to have her
home today to help me. It’s often hard to get anything
written when the boys are up and around hehehehehe.
It’s 5 PM now and as soon as I get done here I might
fix Judy and I something to eat. I’ll fix the boys their
food later as I do every day. I still have a burger in
the fridge. I might see if Judy wants half of it, because
I can’t eat a whole burger. If she don’t want it, I’ll just
do as I did yesterday and put half of it back in the fridge
and see what she would want instead. Did I mention
that I love having Judy home with me today hehehehe?
If not, I love having her home with me today. It does
seem a little weird, being me and the boys had sort of
gotten used to her leaving every Sunday to go to her
sister’s house. :) We can get used to her being home.
There’s not any new news about Judy’s Brother Ricky.
I will keep you up to date as I find out more. For now
he is still in the Bangor Hospital. So now I reckon it’s
time for me to be telling you what I tell you almost
every week and that is I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yep, 10 more poems with one of them being
sort of Christmassy. Also I once again wrote 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope you
can find one or two of either or both that you like :)
So now I think it’s time for me to begin my search for
that freaken 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 ornery
off switch trying to hide this week. Oooh, getting
good are we hehehe! Hiding on the face of my watch
trying to act like the hour hand might of worked if you
were on the correct hour LOL. It’s not 6:15 PM :)
It’s 5:15 PM ya silly hehehehehehehehehehehehe
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

The Lighthouse

A seashore so rocky
makes many ships sink
without a lighthouse
to glow in the brink.
Seen in the darkness
of oceans of time
is then the lighthouse
with its awesome shine.
Yet by the daylight
the lighthouse is found
standing so firmly
just looking around.
The lighthouse keeper
that lives in its walls
lights up its candle
for nights oceans calls.
Keeping glass polished
for its brightly shine
to be the lighthouse
with its warning sign.

Imaginary Times

Sometimes our thinking
might need to imagine
times that we’re in an
alternate region.
Moments of sadness
that come with a frown
imaginary times can
turn them around.
For sometimes thinking
too seriously
can become problems
for you and for me.
Imaginary times
of momentous smiles
can sometimes help you
through troublesome aisles.
Yet there are moments
that need real designs
so don’t just live in
imaginary times.

The Dance of Stars

A night of darkness
brings stars alive
along with the moonlights
own sort of jive.
The dance of stars
will twinkle and shine
within the night sky
of time after time.
Dance moves of rhythms
that are so faraway
within the constellation
of the Milky Way.
The stars will twinkle
and shine all night
giving our night sky
some beautiful light.
Yet there are planets
as Venus and Mars
that also join in
with the dance of stars.

Looking For Style

Searching through closets
of lifetimes of while
many are just then
looking for style.
Not seeing truthful
the depth of there gaze
they might find nightmares
style of the days.
Looking for style
without seeing true
could corrupt everything
you say and do.
Sometimes that style
that you’re found seeking
is but a time frames
mistaken critiquing.
For it’s the person
the truth does compile
that is the best then
looking for style.

A Cry In The Night

As the winds blow
they make many sounds
a cry in the night
that somehow astounds.
It whispers some stories
beyond every sight
that are what’s heard as
a cry in the night.
Sometimes when blowing
the winds are announcing
branches and leaves seen
surely found bouncing.
The clouds passing quickly
on a starry night ride
join with their story
as cries coincide.
A cry in the night
of winds blowing tune
tells ones the tale
in the light of the moon.

Stories Of Christmas

The beginning of Christmas
so many will hear
stories one’s made up
year after year.
Many tell the story
of their own charade
stories of Christmas
that only degrade.
Stories of Christmas
need to hold true
the life of Lord Jesus
God sent me and you.
Many misconceptions
bring forth discontent
making ones Christmases
found as Hell bent.
The truth is that Jesus
was sent as our savior
from God The Father
that day in a manger.
As Virgin Mary birthed
The King of each king
stories of Christmas
are as angels sing.
Glory hallelujah
the stories foretold
stories of Christmas
from now unto old.
Life continues on
as the stories are read
to Christmas children
as they go to bed.
Stories of our Savior
and how He gave true
a way into Heaven
for me and for you.

Angels Of Dawn

Night brings us dreamland
as time moves along
then minutes tick on
for angels of dawn,
Angels found watching
and guiding us too
as dawns arrival
comes into our view.
The angels still guard us
as nighttime displays,
but they are busier
the light of the day.
As we go marching
within our own stride
angels of dawn then
go for the ride.
Watching and waiting
to do what they can
to help us to do what
that is of God’s plan.

Aqua Blue

My memories
of times other day
are of an island
so faraway.
The oceans waves
came rolling in
with aqua blue
of where we’d been.
Scenes remembered
found in the sand
beside aqua blue
with us hand in hand.
The minutes move on
as tides crash ashore
aqua blue thoughts
of then evermore.
Now only pictures
of that wondrous view
display remembrance
of that aqua blue.
The tides of time
are leaving a trail
found with us walking
an islands detail.
Each scenes arrival
live as memories
with aqua blue settings
of island view seas.

Frolicking Waters

Children splashing around
frolicking fun
as rain is falling down
when it’s begun.
Frolicking waters of
my own premise
I can remember now
under the skies.
Clouds of so fluffy white
frolic their view
down to Earth surely then
waters of blue.
Each scenic memory
comes as a page
frolicking waters of
rainwater’s stage.
I can remember now
times long ago
frolicking waters that
I used to know.
My childhood memories
frolicking around
in the rainwater
that’s found on the ground.

Chasing Shadows

When the day starts
and sunshine is found
I’m chasing shadows
I’ve found on the ground.
Maybe my own then
or maybe might not
I’m chasing shadows
that I once have sought.
Sometimes those shadows
are just but a phase
of my perception
of my future days.
Yet many shadows
that I sometimes chase
leave me confusion
that’s found on my face.
For many shadows
are just but a time
maybe just a minute
of a moments design.
Each minute’s changing
with momentous flows
leaving me sometimes just
chasing shadows.

Haiku
for Apr 25, 2015

Designing a heart
needs understanding its beat
and how that it bleeds.

Amidst perfection
lies misinterpretation
of what that is perfect.

Arms length of true love
brings forth many emotions
that are often want.

Lost in a forest
one might find the moss growing
to show them the way.

Allowing sadness
to thrive and lose happiness
is a choice we make.

Grandeur delusions
are often ones perception
of how good they are.

Atop a mountain
one might hear their own echo
if they yell real loud.

The fortress of time
builds its walls in our actions
either good or bad.

Glimmers of sunlight
come peeking through the tree line
to welcome the day.

While ignorance thrives
the lessons are still growing
showing right from wrong.

The meat of a lie
displays the unstable ground
that one day shows truth.

Beneath our footsteps
could be footprints of others
that we might not see.

Being positive
still gives way for being wrong,
because things will change.

Mining a moment
needs the tools of memories
to be of the best.

Leaves of spring grow
making trees to become green
to welcome more life.

The birds chirp outside
telling their tales of springtime
and how they love it.

Discerning passion
needs a correct assessment
or you could be hurt.

The rains of springtime
will land and become rivers
or soak in the ground.

Seasonal daydreams
come as passed days emotions
that now doesn’t show.

In heartbreak hotel
there lives a choice to move on
or to just stay there.

Now is a second
that soon will be a minute
that you might wish back.

Sleepless brings havoc
as the mind loses its grip
and creates wrong thoughts.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you’re having a great life or as best to be
expected. Judy and I are doing well although her
younger brother is not doing so well. He is in the
hospital now with many health issues, but it looks
as though he will be OK God willing. He might be
put in the nursing home, but there’s worse things
to be put in like the grave. So now it’s on with my
journal. This passed week has been a somewhat
spring looking one or at least for up here it is LOL.
Yes, there is still some snow on the ground, but
it’s melting away slowly. I’ve taken a few pictures
of it in its melting progression LOL. Yep, we even
have a nonwhite driveway now hehehe. I’ve been
making jokes to Judy telling her to not back into
the snowbank :) We get a good laugh at that as
the only snowbank left beside our driveway isn’t
but maybe an inch high hehehe and after today
it might be gone. There’s still a lot of snow in
the tree line beside our place. I’m seeing a few
buds sprouting on the trees, but as of yet there
are no leaves. My mind is somehow still locked
on wintertime, being I can still see snow hehehe.
You would think that I have been up here long
enough to realize that this is our springtime LOL.
I still have a vision of spring and summer back
in Texas. The vision is HOT and I don’t miss it,
but I do miss seeing spring come alive and all of
that. Of course right now, Texas along with a
few other states along with California are dealing
with drought conditions. I think California is
having the worst time of all. In any sense, it’s
still raining up here as normal. When the snow
ends the rain begins hehehe. We’ve got flood
warnings at the Aroostoock River in Northern
Maine. The river continues to be impacted by
two ice jams near the river gage. Although a
gradual downward trend has been seen since
this morning, sudden fluctuations in river levels
are possible through this evening until the ice is
completely flushed out. Yep, when the snow
starts melting, it sends tons of water down to
low lying areas. Fortunately, we’re not in a
low lying area. We’re actually on high ground.
The river beneath us would have to really get
walloped by over three times the snow we got
this winter before it would reach us :). Maybe
not three times, but a whole lot more than we
normally get and we got a lot of snow this winter.
I don’t think we got as much as we got back in
2008. My first winter in Maine we had a ton
of snow. A record breaking snowfall for Maine
or at least that’s what I was told. In any sense,
it was more snow than I had ever seen aside
from my trip to the Colorado Mountains with
the Russell Memorial Methodist choir in Wills
Point Texas that I sang in when we were on tour
back in my younger years. Well I just looked at
my weather program and it says it’s supposed
to rain most of the week beginning tomorrow
evening. YEAH!!!! Not really yeah, but it’s
not up to me, so why get uptight about it LOL!
I’m doing laundry as I write. I’ve already got
one load in the dryer and waiting for it to be
ready to take out and then another load in the
washing machine waiting for the dryer. I have
one load to go. The towels are next to go in
the washer :). After I get done here with my
writing, I’ll be folding clothes. YEAH!!!!!!!
and not really yeah again, but it’s gotta get
done and I want to have it all done before my
honeypie gets home from her sisters house.
I’m sure she will be tired from taking care of
her mom and we are both needing some clean
clothes. I might do a small load later if I find
a few things I missed that need washing, but
for the most part it will be done. Next, I might
attack the dishes, if of course I have time to
do them after writing this and folding clothes.
I try not to just sit around the house. That’s
why I will often go outside and take pictures.
I’m trying to keep this old body moving LOL.
I can remember when I was in the hospital
for my Ulcerative Colitis and Crohns which
caused me to lose my colon and a third of my
small intestines. I was really weak from not
walking and it took me a long time to recover
although I never fully recovered. I have a
hellacious scar on my stomach. Yeppers
this old body has been through the ringer :),
but it’s still managing to get me around and
I’m thankful for that, even if it hurts like you
know what most of the time LOL. So off of
what ails me and onto another topic hehehe.
Right now it’s 50 F degrees and sunny with a
few clouds floating in the sky. Tomorrow is
supposed to start out sunny, but then have
a few clouds come to visit and pour down
some rain on us later around the midnight
hours. Thank You God for keeping us under
Your Grace and Love. We are oh so very
thankful for all that You have done for us as
we’ve experienced each day anew with the
blessings that You have given us. I think we
will all often lose sight of what we’re needing
and what we’re wanting. Many times with
our carnal minds we will get them confused.
Let God help you with your choices in life
and maybe just maybe you won’t be so bent
out of shape so often. Yes, we will have
our share of problems which at times might
reflect as someone else’s problems, but we
have God to go to and give it to Him and He
will give you strength to make it through it.
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. Hehehe first I had to stop
and fold clothes and put the last load in the
washer. It’s done and so off to that place of
my recollection that I seem to always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I’ve
found a decent title to use and it looks like
I may have not used this one. Maybe one
similar, but not the same. So here goes :)

Our Share

Today brings our stages
of timeless arrivals
that is our share with
some new ways survivals.
Changing of moments
from morning to night
our share of troubles
might seem as not right.
Yet we have our share
of things we go through
that to some others
might seem as so few.
It is the owner of
daily times stages
that sees the story then
all through their ages.
Yet to another then
they might just see
our share of problems
the smallest degree.
Let God to help you
with your daily fare,
for He knows better
what’s truly our share.

Okie dokie, there ya go. I hope you enjoyed my
rambling and you understood the poem. I really
never know if it will make any sense to anybody
but me, but I hope it does. I hear the washer on
its last cycle. Of course I’ll have to wait for the
clothes in the dryer to get done, before I can put
the last load in. So I have time to finish this and
maybe even edit it. There’s not much else to tell
you that I haven’t already mentioned. Milo is
sitting right behind me with that hungry look :).
So I’ll stop here and feed the boys. OK, now
they’re both feeding their faces hehehe. Maybe
I can get this journal finished now LOL. I guess
it’s time for me to tell you what I tell you almost
every week and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems with 2 of em
being sort of Christmassy. Also I wrote once agin
22 haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there. It
looks like I’ll have to stop a moment and let Milo
out so he can go potty hehehe. He’s knocking at
the door with his paw. I’ll be back. OK, I’m back.
I think Benny and Milo are content now. Maybe
I can get this done now hehehe. I reckon its time
for me to be searching for that old off switch that
ain’t so great at hiding, but before I do, I need to
wish you a most wonderful weekend or whatever
is left of it and a most joyful and blessings filled
week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do
too. Now where’s that dadgum off switch hiding
this time? OK now, I can sort of see you in the
curtain as the breeze blows and exposes you :)
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

Oh yea P.S. We had a visit from Judy’s daughters
last week. They brought their dogs to get them used
to being around others. Benny loved it :) Milo on

Springful Skies

A statement, a wording
of moments surmise
is after winter
with springful skies.
Filled with aliveness
as flowers bloom
in springful skies
as time comes attune.
The seasonal blessings
are colors so sweet
with springful skies
a wonderful treat.
Rains come to water
and give birth a view
as the clouds gather
within thereunto.
Even the shadows
that springtime displays
is with the beautiful
wonderful days.
The essence of morning
fills with surprise
with the beginning of
springful skies.

Dreams Come Alive

With Christmas thinking
the times do survive
as a dreamer dreaming
that dreams come alive.
Yes of course dreamers
can see the sweet view
of Christmas mornings
so fresh and so true.
Seeing the tree lit
with a train going around
dreams come alive
with their sweet sight and sound.
Wonderful moments
that still live and breathe
inside of our minds
if we will believe.
Those dreams come alive
of Christmass displays
with that of a dreamer
of wonderful days.

Winter Moves On

While one day was winter
it now fades away
leaving a magical
view to display.
The snow is all melting
and leaving in place
springtime’s arrival
with a birds smiling face.
Yes winter moves on
as each day will turn
leaving some patches
of snow to discern.
Yet spring brings flowers
to soon come in view
as winter moves on
to return then on cue.
Springtime gives way for
those summertime days
filled with those magical
sun tanning rays.
It’s as the pages
will start a new book
as winter moves on
to allow a new look.

Time Rolls In

As a wave
of time rolls in
to the days
to then begin
Time displays
a certain place
as it rolls
from place to place.
Time rolls in
as seconds pass
leaving many
shadows cast.
As our footsteps
leave their mark
time rolls in
to then embark.
Footprints found
on sandy shores
display all
that time implores.
Time rolls in
with shadow whiles
finding many
moments smiles.
Yet some moments
might be grey
with the time
from day to day.
But those times
of there and then
can wash away
as time rolls in.

My Own Mistakes

All of my choices
that I chose so free
brought me the mishaps
that time found for me.
My own decisions
were most times at fault
for bringing daily
my own times assault,
Yes my own mistakes
brought lessons galore
in through my lifetime
of each wrongful door.
The blame was so often
just me choosing wrong
ending with me then
where I don’t belong.
Life has a pattern
of its give and takes
and God knows I’ll learn
from my own mistakes.

Now As I Seek

This moments springtime
gives me thoughts within
time frames I’ve gathered
from where all I’ve been.
Wintertime’s snowflakes
with Christmastime’s views
finds me with moments
of yesterdays news.
Decembers twilight
is now as I seek
found in a moment
of wanting times peek.
Christmastime’s value
is much more than money.
It’s filled with blessings
of times with my honey.
And so now this moment
I look back and gaze
at all those wonderful
magical days.
Now as I seek them
those times I remember
I think of Christmas
as more than December.

Secret Paths

Journeys wantings
secrets made
paths are counted
and displayed.
For some secrets
come to shine
from mistakes of

Secret paths
that many make
often lead to

If one knows your
secret paths

An Ocean Of Swells

Waves come a rolling
just washing in shells
found on an island
of an ocean of swells.
Morning times sunrise
brings waves evermore
washing in rhythms
of time on the shore.
An ocean of swells
is a visual thing
often that’s heard as
waves as they sing.
Waves found just crashing
on sweet sands of time
sound like a heartbeat
that is so divine.
A wonderful symphony
joined in by birds
an ocean of swells
is endless of words.

Waiting For Luck

Often we’re waiting
for time to foretell
when that our journey
will turn out so well.
Waiting for luck as
time goes its way
is sometimes followed
with troubles display.
Often while waiting
we might stumble on
something we wanted
that was better gone.
Let God to help you
to wait with more ease
and not to hurry
with troublesome breeze.
Don’t let your wanna
to exceed what’s good
waiting for luck
might not turn out good.
Sometimes it’s best
to just continue on
and let God guide you
and help you along.

After The Snow

Now as dear winter
is blowing away
springtime is giving
a wonderful day.
Found after winter
the birds chirp so sweet
after the snow
there’s ground at my feet.
Soon all the snow will
melt and help grow
springtime’s own threshold
as rivers will flow.
The stage is set now
to bring forth its power
that is well painted
with every wild flower.
Even the plant life
that ones planted true
after the snow’s gone
will come into view.
Springtime’s arrival
is greeted with joy
as it makes plant life
to surely deploy.

Haiku
for Apr 18, 2015

In the looking glass
we might see a reflection
that others don’t see.

Hidden within time
there are minutes we don’t see,
due to not looking.

Today brings chances
for tomorrow’s better times
written in choices.

Points that we’re making
might not be so obvious
and be lost in time.

Conclusion jumping
could end with wrong perceptions
and end in despair.

Looking back in time
might find you disappointed
and wishing it changed.

Speaking too freely
can cause harm to ones you love,
so careful with words.

As we move ahead
we will find opened doorways
with some not so good.

Winds will find their course
as time displays their journey
driven in each day.

Windows of chances
are sometimes just confusion
painted with fluster.

Blind leading the blind
displays ones with no business
of being in charge.

Within a garage
ones might store their deception
and not show the truth.

A cold as ice heart
will not find any true love
unless it warms up.

Life in the fast lane
will often find destruction
that will hurt others.

The winds of winter
bring forth their own appearance
flavored with snowflakes.

One with hurt feelings
might hide them from you and me
for fear of judgment.

Anger fills a cup
to where it could overflow
if it’s not emptied.

Laughing too loudly
could make others look at you
and think you’re crazy.

The footsteps we make
leave footprints in our journey
that ones might follow.

As daylight goes dark
nighttime brings stars out to dance
and the moon to shine.

Meaningful heartbeats
bring love into existence
as one becomes two.

A little venture
might conclude to large footsteps
leading to nowhere.

Remember The Moments

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s a bright and sunny day today and 54 F degrees.
Of course there is still a ton of snow outside yet to be
melted away. Yep, ya still gotta wear sunshades to
look outside LOL. The good part is that there is no
more snow in the forecast. There is although a bit of
rain in the forecast LOL. We’re still gonna have some
freezing temperatures at night for a while. That’s the
way it is up here. If it ain’t snowing, it’s raining LOL.
I will be glad when spring does finally get here. Yet
right now, there are still just barren branches on the
trees. Of course all of the evergreens are still green.
That only changes when they have tons of snow on
them and in that case they’re white hehehe. Yep,
this is life up north in Maine. Judy and I are doing
well. Our heating oil seemed to of lasted, so we
didn’t have to by anymore, but we will most surely
have to start buying some more this summer to get
ready for next winter, because our tank is almost
empty. Benny and Milo are doing well. They are
as ornery as always hehehe. Milo is lying in a dog
bed right beside me. Benny is at his guard station
on the recliner in the living room. He lets us know
if he hears something. Of course dogs can hear
a lot better than you or I so he tends to hears stuff
that doesn’t really pertain to us, such as some cars
driving down the road or our neighbors LOL. Yep,
he’s our overactive alarm system. We are glad he
does keep tabs though, because sometimes our
doorbell is frozen and will not work, and Benny
lets us know that someone is at the door. If we
try to ignore him in that situation, he will come
and get us and in his own way say come with me,
there’s someone at the door LOL. Yep, that’s
the way this house rolls hehehe. Right now I’m
eating some generic Lucky Charms LOL. They
have gotten a little mushy since I am writing and
eating at the same time or at least attempting to.
Milo just woke up and went and knocked at the
door with his paw to tell me, he’s gotta go out.
I’ll be back……………. I’m back. My cereal is
really soggy now LOL. Oh well, it’s still edible.
I just opened a window to let in some fresh air.
Through the 6 months of winter it does tend to
get a little stuffy in the house being with all of
the storm windows and doors. My allergies are
still running strong. They never take a break.
I have all year round allergies. You might be
able to hear me sneezing if you live close LOL.
I do keep the tissue companies in business :)
I have tried every allergy relief med. that I can
find and so far only Benadryl does anything to
help me, but unfortunately it messes with my
eyes. It doesn’t do like it does for Judy. It
never makes me sleepy. It just makes it hard
to see until it wears off. Then I can see, but
it’s on with the sneezing and blowing my nose.
LOL that’s my life. Milo just got up out of the
floor and went into our bedroom and he has
hopped up on the bed and is now sleeping in
my spot hehehe. Oh well, I’m not using it at
this moment LOL. They both like to lay in
bed with us, but we only allow it if we’re just
watching TV or as the matter as it is now and
neither of us is in bed. They are both banned
if they have been outside in the snow and all.
Nope, that’s when I will point at the floor and
they will stay down there. OK so what else is
going on around this place? Well, I ordered
us a couple of trivia games from Walmart.com
and I had them free ship them to our Walmart
in town. Judy and I went and picked them up
yesterday. One is called I’m With Stupid and
the other is titled You Must Be An Idiot. We
like to play trivia games when we get together
with the family, so I thought I would find us
some cheap ones to bring that we could play.
Anyways, We’re looking forward to playing
them with the kinfolk. It’s 57 F degrees now
at 5 PM according to my weather program, but
the thermometer at our back door says 61 F.
All though a little heat might be escaping to
make it warmer, but I don’t think that much.
In any sense, it’s not freezing and the snow is
slowly melting away. Yes we still have tons
of that white stuff out there, but it’s gradually
diminishing. I just went outside to take a few
pictures of our receding snow and ice. Another
few days and it should be gone unless we have
some more weird weather pop up and we get
more snow. It doesn’t show it in the forecast
though :) Maybe winter has finally run its
course. We shall see hehehe. It has been
known to make a come back in the middle
to near the end of April. Yessiree bob we
might finally see a portion of spring YEAH.
I might then take my conga drums outside
and do some video recordings. It’s way too
hard to do in the wintertime when the wind
is blowing and not to mention the frigid cold.
My conga drum skins can’t handle too much
cold. They are skins ya know. My fingers
can handle it for a short period of time, but
even so, when moving my hands at that fast
pace they still get a little cold and I my index
finger on my left hand got frost bitten many
years ago and it still gives me the fits LOL.
The rest my fingers do fine. Anyways, it
seems that we might be seeing the grass
growing sometime in the future. Yet, for
now, it’s still buried beneath tons of snow.
I can’t wait to start taking some springtime
pictures. Of course the beginning will be
sort of muddy hehehe, being with all of the
snow melting, but one day the grass will
begin to grow again and our landlord will be
ticked off, because it means it’s mowing
season again. For some reason though I
think he likes to drive his tractor hehehe.
I’m looking forward to all of the flowers
blooming. Of course we don’t have none,
but all of the wild flowers that bloom will
display their beauty. It’s their defense
mechanism. They try to look so pretty
that we won’t mow them or whack them
with the weedeater LOL. It only works
for a while and then hasta la vista, baby :)
Summertime awakens my wants for more
picture taking and Judy and I will head
out on a picture taking drive. Benny and
Milo will join us. It’s nice to have pictures
that we can look back on and remember
the moments. Hey, that might work well
for a new poem title hehehe. We shall see.
I just went and looked at the thermometer
on the back door and it seems to be cooling
a bit. Now, it says 57 F. Well the day is
almost over with and it is supposed to get
down to 30 F degrees by morning. Judy
just got home. She’s early. She said her
brother Ricky is sick and in the hospital
now. Judy’s sister Trudy got off from work
early so Judy came home early. Anyways,
it looks like Judy’s brother Ricky is in
a bad way. He hadn’t eaten in a week and
could not get up out of his chair. Why he
didn’t call anybody I have no clue. The
phone was right beside him. Keep him
in your prayers. God will most assuredly
watch over him. I guess with that said,
I need to be doing my little search back
through all that I’ve written here to see
if I can find a title that’s better than the
one that I found a bit ago hehehe. So it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. It looks like the title I find a
little bit ago will do. So here goes :)

Remember The Moments

Those times from another
day we’ve explored
might display sometimes
that we had adored.
Seasons found changing
as dusk unto dawn,
remember the moments
as time moves along.
You might find that one day
you’re needing a smile,
remember the moments
of a times little while.
See how remembering
can bring you on through
passed all the sadness
that might be with you.
Remember the moments
of hearts found united
and you might find then
that you’re so excited.
For moments remembered
can still live and breathe
as a joyful remembrance
that you can believe.

So how was that? I hope it made some sense.
I also hope you enjoyed my rambling hehehe.
I know, you’re saying, How can this guy find
so much to talk about LOL? Well, I just start
writing and let my thoughts come alive. The
boys are asleep in the floor right behind and
beside Judy and I. When Milo saw that mom
was home he came back in here and plopped
down right behind me LOL. Amazing enough
he’s not barking for treats hehehe. I guess
he’s content. There’s not much else to tell ya
other than what I tell you almost every week
and that is I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems, but yet
with one of them this time a Christmas poem.
I also wrote once again 22 more haiku for
all of my haiku lovers out there :) I hope
you can find one or two 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
wonderful weekend or whatever’s left of it
and a blessings filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. OK now,
where’s that freaken off switch hiding
this week? I saw ya duck for cover in my
Lifesaver Mint bag hehehe. Try harder
next time dude. Maybe try NOT peeking.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Pieces Of Time

An instant, a moment
with pieces of time
some seem as boredom,
some seem to rhyme.
Minutes that tick on
with pages of day
might become images
moments display.
Pieces of time
that somehow are found
when we each finally
just look around.
Often those pieces
of time fade from view
when we are burdened
with what others do.
So if we’d focus on
what that is needed
pieces of time might
be then succeeded.

Years Pass

If but a moment
is found on your mind
you might then recall what
passed days will find.
As the years pass by
and time fades away
we each will get older
as hair turns to grey.
Scenes that we’ve found
as our echoes rejoice
find the years pass
with a shadowy voice.
Mesmerizing things
from days that are gone
might become cinders
that are still burning on.
Becoming images
that burn so bright
the years pass on
to our memorized sight.
Things we remember
that will never fade away
are as the years pass
to moments of grey.

A Sea Of Thoughts

With waves crashing in
on a sunshiny day
a sea of thoughts is
a wonderful way.
Walking on the beach
with sand sifting true
a sea of thoughts
is me now with you.
Walking in the waves
of time evermore
we’re holding hands
on this old sandy shore.
An island of summer
as waters will toss
we are together
in a sea of thoughts.
This is but a dream
of a time faraway
you and I together
on one distant day.
A sea of thoughts
with you and I together
lasting in our minds
for now and forever.

To Judy Pearce
from ME :)

Impromptu

Beginning real quickly
without much a thought
sometimes we head out
with what we should not.
A little impromptu
from a hurried way
begins a little journey
that might turn out grey.
An impromptus time
that becomes a pattern
could possibly end up
like rings of Saturn.
Whirling around emptily
without thinking true
where you will end up
with one impromptu.
Often our journeys
we thought up real quick
lead us to gateways
to time frames so sick.
Yet a little impromptu
can brighten our days
if it’s not without
the will of good ways.

Pleasant Dreams

As night comes true
and sleep is found
pleasant dreams
come into town.
Needing only
you to find
pleasant dreams
within your mind.
Think of rainbows
colors bright
as you head off
in the night
Pleasant dreams
of fields of wonder
only needs your
mind to wander.
Relax and find
some peaceful streams
and you’ll find some
pleasant dreams.

Hidden Thoughts

We might hide
our thoughts inside,
but to God
they’re opened wide.
Hidden thoughts
that we don’t tell
might one day
find us in Hell.
For Lord God knows
what we think
and if it’s good
or if it stinks.
Hidden thoughts
are best applied
with God’s help
to cleanse inside.
Yet if goodness
is your mind
hidden thoughts
are good to find.
Being God knows
who you are
and your thoughts
each day by far.

Simply Remembering

Those December days
with Christmastime’s joy
I now remember
a young little boy.
It was my favorite
time to explore
gazing through windows
at the old toy store.
Watching the toy trains
just chugging around
as I knew Christmas
was coming to town.
Simply remembering
those pleasant days
brings me a journey
through Christmas arrays.
Scenes filled with laughter
with Christmas songs sung
I’m simply remembering
when I was so young.
Yet I never saw Christmas
with wintertime’s snow,
but I still dreamed of Santa
and his HoHoHo.
Those childhood moments
I’m simply remembering
are still alive
as those voices still sing.
My family and I
singing songs of such joy
simply remembering
when I was just a boy.

A Moment In Time

I sometimes think that
I might of lost true
sometime or moment
that got passed my view.
A moment in time
from day unto night
that might of seemed to
evade my sight.
We all have moments
that make it on passed
seen now this moment
within our own past.
Yet there are moments
that we might just gaze
sometimes a minute
in times better days.
With recollections
of yesterdays view
a moment in time
might not be for you.

Before The Dawn

Within the morning
sunshine is seen
finding its way passed
starlight and dream.
Before the dawn
the night does display
signs of its end
and beginning of day.
The essence of starlight
glimmers and shines
soon as the dawn breaks
with its designs.
Yet before the dawn
the glow does appear
that displays the time
that daytime is near.
Before the dawn
the night leaves a trace
found in the stars
as a smiling face.
Nighttime is moving
as time ticks on
to give us a glimmer that’s
before the dawn.

Towards Much Better

With our passed behind us
as time marches on
we can find so much better
with some moments gone.
Often with so many
their days move ahead
not seeking for better
but the same ways instead.
Not toward much better,
but repetitive strides
that were just burdensome
temptations dives.
So try to move forwards
towards much better
while trying truly
to be a go getter.
Don’t let your passed days
of hardships to win.
Towards much better
is the way to begin.

Haiku
for Apr 11, 2015

As you imagine
you might begin seeing truth
beyond perception.

The length of a day
gives some the time to mess up
and others to shine.

Harvesting anger
from a time from long ago
will burden today.

Kindness of others
might somehow rub off on you
and make you to smile.

Today’s own hardships
could be just but some moments
that we thought larger.

Looking at the snow
as the sun reflects on it
needs you with sunshades.

Modern medicines
will often not be so good
because it’s practice.

Looking for the truth
needs you to know what it is
so you will know it.

Beyond a shadow
holds some images we see
that might confuse us.

Living in the past
guarantees a bad future,
for it is poisoned.

The weather of time
comes with tornadoes of life
that relocate us.

A license to drive
does not allow you to speed
and ignore the rules.

A little heartache
might cause you to shy away
and not get too close.

Snow within April
still finds a place on the ground
in northeastern Maine.

Sharing little grins
could cause an epidemic
as smiles will blossom.

Pouring on laughter
might make ones think your crazy,
so don’t laugh so hard.

Yesterdays journey
could find itself in today
as some leftovers.

Beyond the starlight
there’s another world to find
as life beacons on.

Similar people
will often find perceptions
not so similar.

While clouds pass us by
they create fluffy artwork
in the sky of blue.

Spirits within us
are often from family
guiding us through life.

Knowing boundaries
and acknowledging their truth
helps us move forward.

No Mistakes

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s cold and windy today. It snowed a bit more yesterday
and Saturday. Judy and I went over to her sister Trudy’s
house yesterday Easter and we all had a great time. We
played a game called UBI. It was a real hard trivia game.
The World According to UBI is an ingenious game in which
players’ general knowledge, geographical awareness, and
luck, all combine with novel game play to provide hours
of enjoyment. Written in a language of its own and played
with a unique map of the world, UBI challenges players
to decipher clues given on UBI-and-answer cards and to
collect a RUBI (scoring piece) from each of the four
world zones en route to building the RUBI UBI pyramid.
It’s an old game from the 80’s hehehe. Judy’s sister had
it and we all played for hours. Judy and I won YEAH :)
We all filled up our tummies on food. Judy fixed a lot
of tasty treats also. Anyways, we took a few pictures.
I took a few of our drive over to their house. It still
looks like winter LOL. Benny went outside and played
in the snow for a bit while we were there. Milo stayed
inside and slept most of the time, but every once in a
while joined with Benny and visited with their cousins.
Trude and Dennis have 4 yorkies. Yeppers, it was a
good day, but we were glad to finally get home and
relax. Judy and I looked at the pictures that she and
I took. I hope you had a great Easter. It might snow
again a little bit tonight, but not much. We don’t need
anymore snow. We’ve still got tons of that white stuff
outside hehehe. So, now ya know why I was unable to
write my journal yesterday huh 😉 I was going to try
and write it last night when we got home, but I was
way too tired and could barely see out of my one and
only good eye LOL. After searching a map of the
freaking world trying to locate things with just a clue
and not what it is we’re looking for is very taxing on
the eyes hehehe. Anyways, next topic. It looks as
though we might finally see some version of spring
before it’s over with . Right now it’s 33 F degrees
with tonight’s low supposedly at 26 F degrees. The
next few days are looking to be in the upper 30’s
to mid to upper 40’s for the highs. We might soon
be able to see some Earth. The roads aren’t too
bad, but they do have tons of frost heaves hehehe.
Frost heaves are where the road has cracked due to
the ice and the melted ice re freezing or an upthrust
of ground or pavement caused by the freezing of
moist soil. LOL a little trivia for ya. Yep, the old
roads are getting worse with every freeze hehehe.
This week doesn’t have much scheduled other than
searching for springtime. Judy’s in the kitchen now
washing dishes. We might be eating lunch in a bit.
Of course it wasn’t but a couple of hours ago that
we ate breakfast hehehe. She just strolled back in
here and is once again browsing Facebook. I will
have to upload a few of the pictures that we took
yesterday. Judy has already uploaded a couple :)
I’m going to try like the dickens to finally get my
PC boxed up and sent to Texas this week hehehe.
With all of the weather conditions and health issues
it’s been hard lately, but Judy is going to help me
get the PC boxed up this evening. It’s hard to get
the flaps taped with just 2 hands LOL. So, what
else is going on around this place. I got a call from
my cousin Greg just a bit ago. It’s always great
to hear from him. He keeps me up to date on all
that is happening in the family. Though I do sort
of keep up to date on Facebook hehehe. I think
he just likes to call and talk. Him and his brother
Randy were 2 of my favorite cousins. We didn’t
get to spend much time together, but when we
did, I enjoyed it. Now being much older I’ve
found a little more common ground with a few
that before I didn’t have. I guess as years are
added one onto the other our age differences
mean less. Plus many of my class mates have
grown beyond all of their grade school clicks
and begun to see what was right before their
eyes. Yes, years have a way of changing ones
perception of the past and present as well as
the future. A year to a teenager seems as an
eternity, but as the years are gathered, the
years also change their format. What you
thought important as a child will often become
a laughable moment. That even includes the
years passed our childhood. While we grow
older our viewpoints might be swayed by our
mistakes and lessons learned. Yes, God is
always watching over us, but He expects us
to do our part and learn from our mistakes.
If we made no mistakes, we would have no
lessons to learn by. The human race is built
on errors. What didn’t work one way gave
the momentum to try other ways and thus
growth is made. God gave us differences
which are our imperfections that make us to
be perfect in His Eyes, for if we were all
the same, then we would have no unique
personal qualities and we would not grow.
It’s differences that spawn growth. Don’t
think of yourself as dumb just because you
can’t do what another can do. You are you
and you are unique. Let your gifts shine in
The Eyes of God. I guess I have gone and
rambled quite enough haven’t I hehehehe.
So I reckon it’s time for me to be taking my
lil journey back through all that I’ve written
here, to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I found a good title and now after
checking I see that it’s been used, so next.
OK, so I found a fairly good title now that
I haven’t used yet hehehe. So here goes :)

No Mistakes

Timeless turns
of our heartaches
teach us more
than no mistakes.
Lessons learned
as time moves on
finds us with
what’s right and wrong.
No mistakes
of pages turned
shows so few
of lessons learned.
Yet so many
learn to view
times mistakes
from me and you.
But a baker
learns what bakes
from the trials,
not no mistakes.

OK, so there ya go hehehe. I hope my rambling
didn’t put ya to sleep and you maybe enjoyed the
poem. I know the poem might not of been one of
my better ones, but it’ll have to do LOL. I’ve got
the whole family in here now. Judy is browsing the
Internet looking for a dog washtub. Both of us are
having trouble kneeling down at the bathtub and
washing them and then cleaning up the bathtub.
Anyways, she’s looking :) The boys are lying in
the floor between Judy and I. I think they are
pooped from trying to keep up with all of their
little cousins yesterday hehehe. I know Milo is.
He’s the eldest of them all. There’s not much
else to tell you other than what I tell you every
week and that is, I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems, but nope, no
Christmas poems this week. I might get back
into writing them again soon hehehe. Anyways,
I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my 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 God filled week and a belated Happy
Easter. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now to find that freaken off switch :)
I see ya you little whippersnapper. Hiding
behind my Cheetoes almost worked, but I’ve
got the munchies and there ya are :) hehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

April Snow

In northern Maine
it often shows
signs of times
how April snows.
The white outside
is coming down
bulding quickly
on the ground.
I know one day
that soon will be
April days
no snow to see.
Yet this moment
I see white
near and far
within my sight.
Falling quickly
sure to show
nothern Maine
with April snow.

Winter Lives On

In seasons to come
winter lives on
maybe remembered
dusk unto dawn.
Wintertime’s moment
might be extended
if spring and summer
somehow befriend it.
Seasonal doorways
open and close
sometimes with winter
with temps in the lows.
Winter lives on now
as windows display
beginnings of April
confusions array.
Yet way up northward
dusk unto dawn
6 months displays how
winter lives on.

Illusion

Truth of believing
is sometimes not real
for mere illusions
our hands cannot feel.
Sometimes our heart
will find much confusion
within reality
of disillusion.
If but a moment
guides you astray
seek for Lord Jesus
to show you the way.
For He is truly
the Savior of times
not just illusion
that leads to land mines.
Let yourself see now
past the confusion
and find the truth
that’s not just illusion.

Deep Ocean Mind

A wave of existence
with many a kind
displays the stories
a deep ocean mind.
Deep down beneath the
waves that we see
a deep ocean mind
lives in you and me.
We’ve found ourselves
in waves that roll in
as we’ve discovered
how things will begin.
A deep ocean mind
of rhythmic tides
brings some conclusions
of scenes certain size.
Often our stories
will be so inclined
to display virtues
a deep ocean mind.

As The Earth Turns

Our different lifestyles
from every which way
sometimes cause problems
with so much to say.
As the Earth turns
it displays our voices
with many people
and all of their choices.
God gave this planet
to be for us all
as the Earth turns
from winter to fall.
Seasons between them
as the Earth turns
spring unto summer
is what it discerns.
With every doorway
that rotates around
as the Earth turns
displays sight and sound.
Many a pathway
with so many choices
displays the ventures
of so many voices.
Counted perceptions
with each one unique
as the Earth turns
so many will speak.
So as we find that
we each have concerns
we might find differences
as the Earth turns.

Life As It May

A looking glass mind
with will and a way
describes then so many
their life as it may.
Joined by conclusions
in reflections of mind
a looking glass viewpoint
sees time after time.
Life as it might be
or maybe not so
brings ones conclusions
the wrong way to go.
Yet often patterns
will bring forth a while
painted with morals
with lesser a smile.
Look for the beauty
within every day
and see what God’s done
life as it may.
Look beyond problems
and see what that’s good
life as it may
be misunderstood.
Let not the doorways
of troublesome times
to be what that’s only
your daily designs.
See all the blessings
of each passing day
as you’re evolving
life as it may.

Whispers Of Time

Found in a valley
are whispers of time
seen as a portion
of blessings to find.
Whispering ventures
footprints display
times that have passed on
day after day.
Winds blowing briskly
with voices we hear
the whispers of time
of year after year.
Spoke as an author
written by birds
with all their chatter
of so distant words.
A whisper of time
begins with a scene
white unto winter
green within spring.
With every whisper
a voice will appear
speaking of seasons
year after year.

A Slippery Road

A slippery wintery
roads design
now is enshrouding
what that’s springtime.
The season is taunted
with winter snow
supposed to be springtime
seen to and fro.
Yet on this day of
northeastern Maine
a slippery road
seems so insane.
Supposed to be springtime
not cold and white
a slippery road
is now in my sight.
It seems that springtime
will never be
but a slippery road
of which I can see.

The Day After Now

Without yesterday
our now days would be
a moment without
some lessons to see.
We learn from our past,
but some maybe not
for the day after now
their past is forgot.
The day after now
is feathered with tools
that comes from lessons
maybe as fools.
Times found so foolishly
that came before
the day after now
gives us to explore.
Lessons from time frames
then did not see,
but the day after now
shows our history.

It’s So Pointless

To find only anger
in things that are done
makes it real hard to
see shining sun.
Life in a bubble
filled with just pain
might leave you nothing
but just insane.
For it’s so pointless
to just look down
when life and love
can surely be found.
It might not be what all
you think is right,
but often it’s us that
create the sight.
It’s so pointless to
bring up the past,
when now is a brand new
daily forecast.

Haiku
for Apr 4, 2015

With a simple breath
life can be spread all around
with words of Jesus.

It takes but three words
to change our destination
and they’re I love you.

With many talking
there might be less listening,
because it’s just gossip.

Due to ignorance
many speak without thinking
and end up lonely.

Minutes in a day
add up to hours we’ve missed
due to lack of care.

In a looking glass
one might see only beauty,
but the truth lies deep.

A passionate soul
reaches to help another
even when in pain.

Peace has a value
that is bought with agreeing
and not mere money.

Looking for snowflakes
in a wintery morning
might find you a few.

Beyond our eyesight
holds many things that are real,
but we just can’t see.

When two have bonded
the stories are made longer
as they’re united.

The past leaves echoes
that might be heard tomorrow,
yet not so proudly.

The stars in the sky
twinkle their on going words
as stories of night.

Painting a picture
needs an imagination
to bring it to life.

Lifestyles of others
do not need to be as ours,
for we are not them.

Simple minds of time
might find a few amazement’s
in the lesser things.

A voice in our head
could be our conscience speaking
discerning what’s right.

Sometimes what we see
is not what that’s really there
as eyes will play tricks.

When today is done
it leaves tomorrow to come
in today’s shadows.

When the wind’s blowing
it seems to be saying words
spoken in a breath.

A forest of trees
gives forth a story of time
with branches of leaves.

Tomorrow’s today
will be without this moment,
but lessons live on.

On My Shoulder

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another white and bright week gone by and
it’s seeming that this snow will never melt, but I know
it will sooner or later LOL. We might get some more
snow this week, but according to my weather program
it won’t be too much and it will be joined with some rain.
The daytime temperatures are supposed to be warmer
and above the freezing mark, but the nights are still in
the freezing temperature range. I am going to get my
PC packed up this week and sent to Texas to get it
hopefully repaired. It has many of the programs that
I need that I do not have on this PC. I’ve got my XP
PC switched over to my large monitor so I can see to
do what I need to do. The other monitor is a 15 inch.
This one is 28 inches. I can see it better. Anyways,
I’ve found all of my poems, journals and haiku’s so
I have them updated on this PC. Actually, the only
reason I use this PC is for my journals and sending
them using Outlook Express. Windows Live sucks.
It will not do my email folders or stationery as my
Outlook Express will. If I were to have to do it all on
Windows Live, I would just have to quit because it
will not work. So, thank God for Windows XP and
Outlook Express. I have all of the programs I need
on it to keep it safe. I don’t need Windows updates
I’ve got all of the preventive programs that I need.
This PC is a lot faster than the other also, being the
other one was only a 1.4 GHZ hehehe and I bought
it new a year or so ago from Walmart. I’m going to
see about getting my friends in Texas to put a faster
processor in it while they have it. This one has a
2.99 GHZ processor. It boogies hehehe. Oh well,
life goes on. Anyways, onto another topic. This
passed week Judy went for an Aortogram which is
Angioplasty on her leg to unblock the arteries in
her leg. She’ll have the other leg done later. They
can only do one leg at a time. She’s doing pretty
good. They said she could remove the bandage
in 48 hours and that was last Tuesday, but she
left it on for a couple days extra just for safety’s
sake. I removed it for her last night. It’s healed
nicely. We’re going to buy us some bicycles when
we can afford them and some dog/kid carriers to
pull behind them so Benny and Milo can go with
us on our rides :) Yeppers, Judy and me wanna
lose some weight and we figured that’ll be a good
way. Today it’s bright and sunny and when you
look outside, you can go snow-blind, because it’s
white as all get out hehehe. Yep, we’ve still got
megatons of snow outside. Benny is sitting on
the porch enjoying the sunshine. He loves to sit
on the porch. I have no idea why, but he does.
I think I’ll go see if he’s ready to come in. I’ll
be back. I opened the door and said, are ya
ready to come back inside and he just looked up
at me as if to ponder the thought and then he got
up and slowly came inside and he was greeted by
Milo. OK back to writing. It’s 37 F degrees and
with the sun shining it feels a little warmer than
that. It’s supposed to get down to 21 F degrees
tonight. That’s still not too bad. It’s not subzero.
Well, what else is there to talk about? The boys
are resting quietly in the other room. I think Milo
is on our bed watching cartoons and Benny is in
the living room on the recliner hehehe. Judy’s
daughters came over the other day to check and
see how her surgery went. We had a great visit.
They brought Helena’s son Christian with them.
Helena is Judy’s youngest daughter. I was in
the middle of fixing Judy and I some breakfast
when they came by, but we sat and ate it while
we visited. Judy had already taken her diabetes
medicine and she had to eat. I took a few pictures
of her and the girls along with Christian in the
mix hehehe. I might put one of the pictures in
the stationery. Oh yea, me and the boys had
to wait out in the parking garage at the hospital
for 8 hours while Judy had her operation and
went to recovery. I went to visit her a couple
of times, but got lost on each occasion being
I get turned around easy hehehe and that is a
big hospital down in Bangor. I had to ask for
help to find her and then get back to our car :)
My asthma was kicking in bad and they ended
up wheeling me around in a wheelchair hehehe.
The Valet took me to our car. LOL, they didn’t
park it, but they could tell that I was not going
to be able to walk out to it, being I had moved
the car to the wrong parking lot hehehe. Hey,
I didn’t know. The doctor told me that I might
wanna move our car to the outside parking lot
so the boys could go potty. He never told me
which lot LOL. Anyways, I ended up moving
our car back to the parking garage as close
to the door as possible, so that when Judy was
ready to come home, they could see our car.
The boys never went poop. I guess they were
both a bit nervous. They did number 1 though.
LOL when we finally got home, they both ran
to find a place to go potty hehehe. Bangor
is 115 miles south of us LOL. Judy and I were
hungry so we stopped off at Wendy’s and got
us each a burger and fries to eat before we
headed on the long 2 1/2 hour drive home :)
Yep, Benny and Milo held their bowels until
we finally got home and quickly got out of the
car and ran to do their thing LOL. Yes we
love our little boys. God has so blessed our
family. My granddaughter Sami is doing a
little better. They had to amputate part of
her foot, but she is dealing with it as well as
to be expected. For those of you that don’t
know, Sami was born with Spinal Bifida
and her legs are paralyzed. She does real
good with braces. Please keep her and my
daughter Jamye in your prayers. Jamye is
doing her best, but I do know that all of the
problems can often overwhelm her at times.
They would me or anybody for that matter.
Thank You God for all of the blessings You
have given us and all of the angels that You
have sent to watch over us. There are many
times that I can feel the eyes of angels as
they stay beside me helping me to do what
I need to do. I can often feel the presence
of my dad as it seems his hand is laid on
my shoulder while watching me write. That
is what he used to do on Sunday mornings
when I was writing my journal. I can still
at times feel his hand on my shoulder as
he smiles and says, “Where’s my sermon”.
He always took my journal to church to use
in his lesson for the day. So, I reckon my
dad is always hanging out around our house
watching me write and keeping an eye on
us. I love you dad. OK so I guess I need
to cease my rambling and take 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 new
poem. So, it’s away I go to that little place
of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I may have
found a decent title and now after checking
I see that I have not used it yet, so away
we go hehehe.

On My Shoulder

Those times I felt
a sudden touch
that I loved
so very much.
The hand of dad
while watching me
on my shoulder
so Heavenly.
The pages turned
from faraway
to right now
another day.
My dad in Heaven
watching me
and so often
felt so free.
On my shoulder
I can feel
my daddy there
so very real.
His hand of love
and guidance true
on my shoulder
says I love you.
In his actions
words are found
on my shoulder
he’s around.

To dad
I love you
Bill

Ok, so I got a little deep in the poem. I do think
of my dad often and can sometimes feel him here
watching us. I often hear his voice talking to me
when I am all alone. He always inspired me and
helped me in what ever I was interested in be it
music, poetry or whatever. Thanks dad :) Ok
time to get out of that mode hehehe. Milo just
strolled in and laid against me and my chair LOL.
I guess he missed me hehehe. Now he’s over in
a doggie bed right beside me. I haven’t heard
Benny bark for quite a while. There must not
be much going on outside today :) We have
new neighbors. They look to be older than us.
I hope they can handle it way out here in the
boonies :) There’s not much else to tell ya
except for what I tell you almost every week
and that is I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep, 10 more poems, but once again, none
of them are Christmas poems hehehe. I also
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. I hope you can find one that you
like out of either. Now I believe it’s time for
me to be searching for that confounded off
switch, but not before I wish you a most
joyful weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a truly blessings filled week. Remember
Jesus loves you and we do too. OK now,
where’s that off switch hiding at this week?
LOL, trying to act like a flea on Milo don’t
work. He ain’t got fleas and you’re a bit
large to be thinking you could pass as one.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Approaching Springtime

Wintertime’s leaving us
white snow to melt
showing its signature
times that it dealt.
Springtime’s beginning
with its scenic way
approaching with footsteps
of day after day.
The sunrise each morning
is brighter to shine
when winter leaves us
approaching springtime.
The days become flourished
with so much to grow
that were once hidden
beneath winters snow.
The days have more colors
as white fades away
while approaching springtime
with April and May.
Up here where the winters
seem to hang on real tight
springtime’s arrival
is a wonderful sight.
When approaching springtime
the warmth reappears
showing us its beauty
as it perseveres.
Filling up the distance with
beauty complete
giving us wonders
of a springtime retreat.
Green grasses growing
and flowers to bloom
approaching springtime
gives moments to swoon.
With every essence
of its own design
wintertime leaves us
approaching springtime.

Under The Moonlight

The night air breathes
a moonlight sky
with stars that twinkle
up so high.
Under the moonlight
scenes do appear
flavored as shadows
that often seem near.
Then as the moonlight
breathes a bit more
there are more stories
that you can explore.
Essence of starlight
moonlights companion
that in the night sky
seems like a canyon.
Rivers and valleys
a wonderful sight
are many wonders
under the moonlight.

It Takes Two

Two in a story
written in time
might find some pages
that somehow remind.
Written reminders
found deep inside
might repeat problems
of an ongoing ride.
It takes two people
to start up a war
letting the passed days
to go on too far.
It takes forgiving
but maybe not forget
the horrid yesterdays
a moments mindset.
Learning your lessons,
but not allowing them
to be your now days
of agin and agin.

Beyond The Portal

As doorways are closing
some open real wide
finding our pathways
with footsteps inside.
Beyond the portal
of moments remain
choices we’re choosing
sometimes so insane.
Many a doorway
will not be so good
showing us pathways
there aren’t understood.
Beyond the portal
of then unto there
time frames might falter
and seem without prayer.
Yet every portal
of life we go through
has better choices
for us then to do.
Choosing to change up
which way that we go
beyond the portal
then teaches to grow.
Lessons from journeys
of yesterdays miles
can make the difference
from our frowns and smiles.
Beyond the portal
learn how to breathe
finding God’s blessings
while learning to believe.

Just Imagine

With just a thought
you can be found
with times so sweet
on solid ground.
Just imagine
what that you see
is but a doorway
to a sweet mystery.
Now take a moment
to look deep within
find you a dream to
just imagine.
Seek for the times
of momentous smiles
now just imagine
how it compiles.
For every moment
of each time we see
we can imagine
a great mystery.
Now just imagine
a blessings filled day
and then let Jesus Christ
make it that way.

Springtime’s Lullaby

Within a sweet lullaby
of springtime’s desire
there is a moments time
in its entire.
Painted with morsels
of flowers and trees
and many birds
with a few bumblebees.
Springtime’s lullaby
sings ones to sleep
with all the blessings
of moments to keep.
Found in a lullaby
springtime displays
sweet birdies chirping
their wonderful ways.
Found in a gateway
of oh me oh my

springtime’s lullaby.

Ocean Of Wisdom

The wisdom of waters
waves rolling in
is but an ocean
that times do begin.
An ocean of wisdom
brings forth a prayer
found in the waves
that none can compare.
Scenes so transfixing
as ships out at sea
an ocean of wisdom
displays then for free.
Waves of emotions
roll onto the shore
an ocean of wisdom
of time ever more.
Pictured in a seccond
of minutes of time

All Day

Looking outside
looking in
we might all day
see just sin.
Sometimes all day
isn’t found
what that’s truly
all around.
All day might seem
misery

Yet all day might
be real good
if we’d look
the way we should.
Let not all day
be disgrace.
Seek for time

The Evening Shade

The day rolls by
and sun goes down.
The evening shade
might then be found.
Counting minutes
through the day
brings the times
that go away.
The evening shade
is welcomed true
giving peace
from distant view.
For the sunset
brings its shine
sometimes brightly
time to time.
Then as sunlight
fades from view
the evening shade
is found brand-new.

A Longing Spirit

Beyond our heartbeat
Heavens shine
a longing spirit
so Divine.
The sweetest heartbeat
up above
a longing spirit
fills with love.
The sweetest passion
Christ bestows
a longing spirit
Heaven knows.
Sending blesssings
abundantly
a longing spirit
seeks to see.
It’s with Lord God
through His Son
a longing spirit’s
surely won.
A sweet heartbeat
then bestows
a longing spirit
Jesus knows.

Haiku
for Mar 28, 2015

The warmest people
could have a colder inside
that they hide from you.

Losing perception
makes distant thoughts deception
that could hurt someone.

The leaves on the trees
create abundant displays
as the wind will blow.

With every viewpoint
comes a different story
that many will tell.

Beyond now today
we cannot truly see clear
tomorrow’s results.

The river of time
flows as an secondhand of life
that’s misunderstood.

Searching for true love
could find you with many flaws
so let God help you.

Blessings in a life
are often hidden from sight
until the right time.

Harboring sadness
might find you stood all alone,
so learn how to smile.

As today moves on
it leaves traces of itself
written in your mind.

Sunrise of springtime
displays the dawn of flowers
and other species.

Heartbeats that unite
can become a thriving force
if God is with them.

The snow melts away
as winter breathes its last breath
and springtime arrives.

Destitute people
need some help from you and I
along with Jesus.

When one door closes
you’ll find another will open,
but it might be wrong.

The fear of darkness
gives strength to what’s within it
so have faith in God.

Tomorrow’s journey
begins with footsteps in today
so take heed your steps.

Losing your footing
can cause ridiculous words
to come from your mouth.

Following someone
might find you in their shadow
looking real stupid.

Allowing others
to depict your emotions
could make you the fool.

Hardships of others
might be a little rougher
than you thought they were.

Today marks a time
that yesterday helped to grow
through the good and bad.

Say Hello

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been not so spring looking this week. It snowed a little
last night. Not too awful bad, but it could of passed us by and
we wouldn’t of been upset hehehe. The wind’s blowing rather
vigorously today. It’s 14 F degrees right now which was the
high for today. It’s beginning to get colder as the hours pass.
Tonight’s high is supposed to be 5 F degrees. Nope, it don’t
seem much like spring. We’ve still got mega tons of snow in
our field of view. Benny is still loving it and Milo can take it
or leave it LOL. Boy that wind is blowing strong out there :)
We’re supposed to have 15 to 25 MPH winds with 45 MPH
gust this evening and I think they have begun. Yep, I fill the
wind as it hits our house. It causes my PC monitor to rock
back and forth hehehe. Judy went for some lab test at the
hospital in Bangor last Tuesday and she goes back this week
for surgery on her legs. It’s a routine surgery, but they are
also going to check some other things. Me and the boys will
have a long wait, but it’ll be worth it for Judy to be able to
walk again without hurting so bad. We’re going to get some
bicycles and pet/kid trailers to pull behind them so that the
boys can come with us when we go for bike rides. I can’t
wait! We’re trusting that her surgery will go well and she
will have less hip problems. Anyways, it started snowing
almost halfway to Bangor Tuesday and it snowed all the way
home. I do love snow, but I hate it when it begins to turn to
plain old ice or worse yet, slush. That’s what’s soon to be
all we’ll see for a great while until all of the snow has melted
away hehehe. Sheesh, that wind is slamming against our
house hard. I had to stop and go and check on Milo because
he was barking at the bathroom door. I guess he thought
Judy was in there LOL. Nope Milo, mom’s not home. The
bathroom door stays shut to put less strain on our furnace
and save on heating oil. The only vent in this end of the
house that’s opened is the one in the bathroom. We’ve
got 2 radiator heaters heating our bedroom and the PC
room. One in the bedroom and one in here. That’s so
the furnace only has to keep the other end of the house
from letting the pipes freeze. We stay in the PC room
most of the time. It’s the warmest room in the house as
the radiator heater along with computers and monitors
tend to keep this room at around 70 F degrees all the
time. Benny keeps us informed if someone pulls up in
our driveway or one of the others. :) He goes ballistic
when someone comes to the door or he happens to hear
a knock of any sorts. Often the knock is either Judy
or me bumping something and we have to holler and
say it was just us Benny hehehe. Old Milo is pretty laid
back. Though he does knock at the PC room door if
he’s gotta go potty and if that don’t get our attention,
he’ll start barking like he was just a little bit ago at the
bathroom door LOL. Yes, it gets goofy around here
from time to time hehehe. My old tummy is growling.
That bowl of cereal I ate this morning has done worn
off. I might fix me and the boys something to eat in
a little bit. Egg sandwiches sound good. I fried up
some bacon the other day and I saved some of it to
give to the boys as treats. I’m sure they’ll love that.
It’s 10 F degrees now at 6:13 PM. Yep, it’s getting
colder. Benny wanted to go outside and potty, but
I figure he will wanna stay outside for a little longer
than Milo usually stays out, because Benny likes to
play in the snow. I’ll go check on him in a little bit.
Milo is in here with me lying in a doggy bed with his
face near the heater hehehe. He loves that heater :)
I just went to check on Benny and he was ready to
come back inside hehehe. Milo got up and went with
me to check on him. Milo looks out for his little bro.
When Benny came in they both ran side by side down
through the kitchen and into the PC room (in here).
They’re both lying down in their beds in here now :)
It feels as though they have always been with us.
It’s weird how quickly they grew to be a part of our
family that seems to have always been here. The
winds seems to have died down a little. Thank God!
I thought we were gonna blow away hehehe. Every
time I opened the front storm door to let the boys out
I had to hang onto it or it would of blown off it’s hinges.
Friday was the first day of spring and it sure doesn’t
look like it up here hehehe. We still go snow blind if
we look outside without sunshades on LOL. One day
when Mister Winter finally decides to take a hike,
we might see a portion of springtime. Of course up
here, this is the normal for springtime hehehehe.
I can’t wait till me and Judy get our bikes and the
trailers for the boys. We’re gonna have fun taking
rides together taking pictures as we go and maybe
just maybe we might both start losing some weight.
That would be nice. Of course everybody says that
I look right for Santa hehehe. Santa needs to lose
some pounds. I get tired of having to ask the weight
limit on chairs before I sit down hehehe. I know, I’m
not that fat, or maybe I’m am :). I say I am. Hmm,
what else is there to ramble about? It looks like I’m
running out of things to say. Who’d of thunk it LOL!
All I have left to say this far is that God has been
watching out for us. He has protected us and cared
for us through every trouble that’s come our way.
Thank You God for never giving up on us and always
having angels watching over us. If you ever feel
alone, look up and say hello, because God is always
watching and waiting to hear from you. He might
not remove the road blocks, but he will give you
a way to get through them or another path to follow.
Now, I believe it’s time for me to be taking my lil
trip back through all that I’ve written here to see
if I can find me a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem. So, it’s
away I go to that lil place of my recollection that I
always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. Oh yea,
I managed to find all of the poems and haiku that
were not on this PC. Judy had them on hers so
I just imported them over here with a flash drive.
So now I can check for sure to make sure that a
title has not been used hehehe. Hmm, it looks
like I may have found a decent title and now after
checking, I see that it hasn’t been used yet by me.
So here goes nothing, but I surely hope not LOL.

Say Hello

As winter leaves
with melting snow
seek for spring
and say hello.
Search the doorways
opened wide
as dear spring
then comes inside.
Watch the white snow
melt away
as it slowly
shows spring day.
When dear spring
is then begun
say hello
to mornings sun.
Let the white snow
live in place
of a winters
smiling face.
For when springtime
starts it’s show
see the beauty
say hello.

Yes, I know, that wasn’t a very good poem, but they
can’t all be winners ya know hehehe. I hope it at least
brought you a smile. Also I hope my rambling made ya
giggle a little LOL. I never know if what I’m writing is
going to make any sense to anybody but me and there
are times that it don’t even make sense to me hehehe.
WOW, the wind has picked back up again. I can hear
it blowing. Hehehe It seems my monitor has turned into
a pendulum as it rocks back and forth. It makes it just
a little bit difficult to read what I’ve written to check
for typo’s hehehe. I’ll still give it a whirl after I finish
writing. But now, I believe 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 are Christmas poems, being up until
today I was unable to check for duplicate titles hehehe.
Maybe next week :) like you’re actually wanting to
read Christmas poems, huh hehehe. I send them to
my friend Ben Geurts in Holland and he posts them
on his Old Fashioned Christmas site. A link to it is
at the very end of the journal. Oh and yes I also once
again wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there :) I hope you can find something you like
that makes you smile and even think. Now, 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 blessed
weekend or whatever’s left of it and a most wonderful
prayerful week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now, where is that confounded off switch at
this time. Hmm, I wonder! Yep, hiding under my
keyboards again. Dude don’t you realize that if I see
it wobbling, I’m gonna look. Try harder next time.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Without Thinking True

While many going hurrying
through their days chores
they might then be often
be stuck with sad shores.
Troublesome moments found
from what all they did
while without thinking true
they might overbid.
Sometimes our hurried times
can become a bomb
found as exploding
as our time moves along.
Leaving a dusty trail
in the shadows of time
that’s from the devastation
of time frames land mine.
For without thinking true
you might just be found
standing at the doorway
of all Hell gone down.

Looking Through The Darkness

Throughout the night sky
with clouds overhead
looking through the darkness
might fill you with dread.
Yet it’s the darkness
that gives time for sleep
dreaming of the things
while you’re counting sheep.
But I know that often times
sleep is not found
looking through the darkness
at sights all around.
Searching through the shadows
of nighttime’s surmise
seeing the clouds forming
real high in the skies.
You might find you something
that darkness unveiled
that is God’s angels
with Heaven entailed.
Found as many blessings
dancing around
looking through the darkness
your Heaven is found.

The True Joy Of Life

Finding our blessings
through all of the strife
many might find then
the true joy of life.
Often our blessings
are hidden from sight
throughout our journeys
of left ways and right.
It’s with the patterns
of our lives composed
that the true joy of life
is often exposed.
Maybe a doorway
that we’ve entered through
might show the answers
from wrong things we do.
The true joy of life
could be found in a frame
sometimes as portions
that we thought so lame.
Let not your past days
of yesterdays strife
hide all the blessings
the true joy of life.

Within A Little Prayer

As hearts connect
from everywhere
hope is found
within a little prayer.
Peaceful thoughts
from you and me
within a little prayer
makes history.
The changes made
with many found
within a little prayer
is town to town.
It only takes
a moments time
within a little prayer
to be sublime.
So now today
let God show you
within a little prayer
a better view.

Time Flies By

While time is ticking
time flies by
leaving us questions
of where and why.
When is discussion
as who is implied
while time ticks ahead on
its own little ride.
Soon times connections
are found face to face
as it flies surely
to its point and place.
It’s our perceptions
that create many views
as time flies by
to its own bit of news.
Sometimes illusions
of whether or why
become all the answers
as time flies by.

The Imaginary Fire

On the TV screen
is all my desire
flames all igniting
the imaginary fire.
A video fireplace
burning so bright
seeming as warmth
that feels oh so right.
Yet it’s imaginary
not burning true
as the fire burns
right here in my view.
The imaginary fire
is something I see
flickering flames
for you and for me.
We watch it together
as time moves along
the imaginary fire
until it is gone.

From William Earl Pearce II

Looking For Mysteries

Seeking for changes
searching for sights
looking for mysteries
often excites.
Taking some chances
walking a way
looking for mysteries
comes into play.
Sometimes a porthole
of time opens up
filling our wantings
a curious cup.
Looking for mysteries
often entwines
things we’ve envisioned
mysterious times.
Often shortsighted
will hide many keys
when you are found
looking for mysteries.

Grinding Pages

This day and age
of certain stages
sometimes seems
as grinding pages.
Books relentless
churning words
grinding pages
of absurds.
Many a motion
find a place
grinding pages
life’s rat race.
It seems many
have lost God
as they seek
their own applaud.
Grinding pages
surely show
how so many
come and go.
Thinking only
of themselves
leaving Jesus
on their shelves.
Not allowing
better ages
while they’re always
grinding pages.

The Last Of Winter

The snow is melting
spring is here
the last of winter
is sincere.
It shows snowflakes
still to fall,
but it’s end is
soon to call.
Each day’s closer
soon to gaze
found within
what spring displays.
The last of winter
still has time
to show snowflakes
last design.
Soon the snow will
melt away
the last of winter
and its way.

Searching For Myself

I can remember
those times long ago
searching for myself
and what I should know.
Things I recall now
from moments despair
times that I acted
without not a care.
Searching for myself
and who I should be
I found in the future
was always just me.
While looking at others
I sought to compare
and found that I was
just so unaware.
My own personality
was loud and clear
while searching for myself
in that yesteryear.

Haiku
for Mar 21, 2015

Life in existence
brings forth many passing days
that we know not of.

Confusion excites
when it’s filled with some turnstiles
that could be better.

The wonders of time
are counted as emotion
as minutes tick on.

Long lost family
can rekindle in Heaven
as life has ended.

Morning brings shadows
that come from many viewpoints
as the sun heads west.

A bicycle chain
has many links holding it
as it propels you.

A moments doorway
might be closed for a reason
that you’re not ready.

Liking a pathway
could turn out very sour
if you walk blindly.

Many a person
will often change who they are
before deciding.

Looking for passion
needs you to be passionate
within your own life.

One that’s a liar,
often continues lying,
so do not be fooled.

People without heart
will trample your existence
without thinking twice.

Hindered emotions
might turn into some regrets
so learn to express.

Nobody’s someone
just because they did something.
We are all someone.

As life moves along
the stages we’re on will change
creating new scenes.

Patterns of turnstiles
are as some squeaking loudly
and some not so loud.

Heaven awaits us
as our lives continue on
with minutes counting.

The bright front porch light
helps us to see much clearer
where our dogs might go.

Harnessing sunlight
gives power to move mountains
one grain at a time.

Thinking you know best
might expose your ignorance
for things you don’t know.

Sometimes we are wrong
no matter how you view it,
so learn some acceptance.

Looks of tomorrow
might change with its arrival
so don’t hold your breath.

Just Accept What That Is

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s snowing vigorously at the moment :). I had to go
out and shovel our steps and part of our driveway so
that the boys could go potty. Milo tried to go out and
pee a few hours ago and couldn’t get beyond the first
step LOL. I walked out to check the mail before I did
the shoveling and that was a chore. The snow all the
way to the mailbox was at least a foot or more deep :)
The roads looked nasty. It’s whiteout conditions and
so Judy didn’t have to go to her sister’s house to take
care of her mom being Judy’s sister didn’t go to work
either hehehe. My old back is aching right now from
shoveling snow. While I was outside shoveling, Benny
and Milo came out to go potty and Benny was so happy
that he stayed out with me waiting for me to finish. He
was jumping up on my leg wanting me to pet him LOL.
Judy took a few pictures of me shoveling and Benny
jumping up wanting me to pet him. Although it was
a little hard to shovel and pet him at the same time 😉
When walking to the mailbox I took a video there and
back. In the mean time my right hand that had no glove
on it got a little frozen being I needed it free to use my
camera and can’t work the buttons with my glove on.
Judy was rinsing out soda cans and I borrowed the
water faucet for a brief to thaw out my fingers hehehe.
So yes it is snowing and I see no sign of it stopping
any time soon. It looks like it may snow on through
the night and it’s supposed to snow again Tuesday :)
I don’t mind the snow as long as we haven’t gotta go
no where or I haven’t gotta shovel too much, but it’s
looking like I may have to go and shovel again being
it’s snowing so heavily and the winds blowing so much.
We’ve already gotten well over a foot of snow today.
With that added to what we already had, there’s a
few megatons of snow out there hehehe. It’s hard to
believe that spring is just 5 days away LOL. Nope it
shows no sign of it up here. Oh yea, my Windows 8
PC died and I have to send it to my friend at Century
Computer in Texas to have it fixed, so in the mean
time my reliable Windows XP will be doing all of the
work. Many of my poems and journals are on my
Windows 8 PC so I can’t really check too well to see
if I have duplicate poem titles, but I can check on
what I have on this PC. Hopefully they can get my
Windows 8 PC fixed, because it has many of my old
family pictures on it not to mention many of my poems
that I haven’t got on this PC. Reason being, Windows
8 Windows Live mail is not compatible with Outlook
Express and no way that I’ve found that I can move
them to Outlook Express. Oh well, life goes on :)
So, what all has happened this passed week? That’s
a good question! Our landlord finally made it over to
sort of fix our front storm door to where it will shut.
It’s far from perfect, but it will do till he can get back
and fix it better. My tummy’s grumbling. I haven’t
eaten yet today. I had another rough morning with
my stomach and allergies so I didn’t feel like eating
when Judy ate this morning. Of course the reason she
was eating this morning was because she was planning
on heading over to her sister’s house up until she got
a message from her saying forget it, because she’s
not getting out in this mess LOL. After Judy saw how
bad it was getting, she was glad that she didn’t have
to go out in the mess hehehe. I just heard the snow
plows head down the road again. They’ll be busy all
evening the way that it’s snowing, because when I
walked out to the mailbox and headed back, I couldn’t
tell where I had walked. All my tracks had already
disappeared. As I look out the window right now it
looks like it hasn’t eased up any on the snowing LOL.
The wind is still blowing pretty heavily also. Yep :)
it looks like I will have to go out and shovel again so
that the boys can get out to go potty. Milo is right
behind me eating some dried dog food and Benny is
lying down right beside him waiting his turn hehehe.
Milo got done and now Benny is eating. There are
3 pans of dried food, but the silly boys seems to
always eat from the same pan. If Milo eats from
another Benny will wait right behind kind of like
monkey see, monkey do hehehe. Benny will eat
anything that Milo eats LOL. Before we got Milo
we couldn’t get Benny to eat a few dried foods and a
few other dog foods, but now if he sees Milo eating
it he figures it must be good, so give him some LOL.
They’re both lying down in the floor sleeping now.
I think I need to change out my keyboards. This
PC has a smaller keyboard than I am used to and
it makes it a bit difficult with my big hands. My old
fingers tend to hit 2 keys at a time being the buttons
are so small. Plus the fact this keyboard is BLACK.
The keyboard that I am used to typing on is a white
Labtec and the buttons are twice the size hehehe.
Every freaking time I try to hit the enter button on
this keyboard I end up hitting the buttons above or
below which above is the brackets and below is the
shift button hehehe. So, as soon as I get my other
PC unplugged and packed for delivery I’ll be also
switching out the keyboards until the day that I get
my PC back from Texas. Then I will be switching
my big monitor and keyboard back to it. For the
mean time this will do. It seems our home is still
alive and well and God is still looking out for us.
We have our share of struggles, but nothing like
what we see many others dealing with. There is
always someone worse off than you, but they may
not see it that way. It’s the owner of the problems
that puts and value of their struggles. Yet, if we
would more times just accept what that is there
we might not view the problems as large as they
might of seemed. Let God show you all of the
blessings that you may have been overlooking
due to your own shortsightedness. Look at the
grand picture. Find all of the joy that you have
experienced and rekindle it in your mind. Often
it’s just our perception that determines the grand
scale of our problems. Often someone else might
look at your life and say, you are so very lucky.
Find the blessings and don’t stay focused on the
bad times. Now I believe I need to take my little
venture back through all that I’ve written here to
see if I can find a good word or phrase that I can
use for the title for today’s brand new poem. So
it’s away I go to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. Hmm,
it seems I may have found a title that I haven’t
already used, so let’s give it a try hehehehehe.
Here goes

Just Accept What That Is

So often we will worry
and struggle hard to find
a portion of a moment
with a little peace of mind.
Just accept what that is
for so often that’s the case
that will show you the blessings
from your daily rat race.
So many will be found just
looking at their troubles
and making them much larger
as they display their doubles.
The windows of acceptance
will most often give a way
to find you some peacefulness
day after day.
So, don’t always be looking
at the problems in place,
just accept what that is
and find a smile on your face.

Yes, I wrote that to myself LOL as I do many of my
poems. Hopefully it will help you as well. There are
a ton of things that are out of my grasp for fixing so
I need to accept them as they are and find the many
blessings that God has given me and be happy. I’m sure
that many of you have problems dealing with things
out of your control as well. Hehehe I have to face the
fact that it will still be snowing come spring time LOL.
I don’t mind it, but I’m not looking forward to all of
the slush that will follow when the snow starts to melt.
Yuck! Forget about washing the car LOL. It’ll just
get messy once you drive out of the car wash hehehe.
Anyways, there’s not much else to tell ya. We live
such an exciting life hehehe. So I reckon it’s time
for me to tell you what I tell you almost every week
and that is, I wrote some more poems and haiku :)
Yeppers, 10 more poems and 22 haiku for all of my
haiku lovers out there. Nope no Christmas poems
this week LOL. Maybe next week. So with that said
I guess I need to start my search for that confounded
off switch, but not before I wish you a most joyful
weekend or whatever is left of it and a blessings filled

Tomorrow’s Gaze

With sights and sounds
from other days
we might just find
tomorrow’s gaze.
Found inside
a moments glance
there might be
some song and dance.
Many a moment
of time in view
might be things
we thought so true.
Tomorrow’s gaze
could become seen
more than merely
just a dream.
Pathways written
distant days
might be inside
tomorrow’s gaze.

A Kiss of Winter

As days bring forth
a kiss of winter
the time ticks on
for spring to enter.
Scenes begin their
changing ways
a kiss of winter
then just fades.
Leaving echoes
scenes to shine
a little snow
from wintertime.
A kiss of winter
soon becomes
a kiss of spring
to summers sun.
Each kiss fondly
displays true
it’s own timely
seasons view.

Disheartened Plans

When things go wrong
and plans are blown
don’t just sit
and grunt and groan.
Seek a better
place in time
for a smile
to surely find.
Think of good times
surely so
not disheartened
filled with woe.
For we’re surely
guaranteed
of a few times
dismal seed.
So don’t let your
can’t and cans
be filled with
disheartened plans.

Not Forgotten

Soon our journeys
will end true
leaving others
our own view.
Not forgotten
when we die
we are beacons
in the sky.
Ones might wonder
how and when
not forgotten
does begin,
but the answers
are with God
even though some
might seem odd.
Not forgotten
pages turn
with some lessons
we’ll discern.
Maybe not so
great to see,
but they still
teach you and me.

Life Begins

With a heartbeat
life begins
then in time
it surely ends.
That’s our lives
with passing time
life begins
as yours and mine.
Each with prospect
soon to see
life begins
to be what’ll be.
Days of yonder
began so
that through Jesus
surely grow.
Lessons painted
loss and wins
is what’s learned
when life begins.

Winter Lives

With snow of March
that time derives
winter lives
somehow survives.
Mornings gazing
brings to view
scenes we’re seeing
thereunto.
Winter lives
as flakes of white
way up here
each day and night.
March has hidden
springs detail
as some snowflakes
then set sail.
Winter lives
as life moves on
then until
its time is gone.
Here in Maine
winds whirl and whiz,
for in March then
winter lives.

Turbulent Thoughts

While in alone ville
I have time to think
the turbulent thoughts
of time frames to drink.
Found in a river
of thoughts long ago
the turbulent thoughts
continue to grow.
Seasons of footsteps
paving a way
the river of time is
day after day.
Turbulent thoughts
from alone villes design
then come alive
and surely unwind.
Finding the good times
from what was thought lost
this is alone villes
turbulent thoughts.

Waiting On God

Often we’ll hurry
and worry alot
while waiting on God
we’ve surely forgot.
Many things happen
as our mysteries
sometimes as calm
and then crashing seas.
Patiently waiting
will often be found
with many blessings
that God sends around.
Yet often hurry
will lead us astray
when we’re not waiting
for God to display.
Lessons are endless
with time frames abroad
and often it’s better when
waiting on God.

A Snow Looking Cloud

A day looking upwards
brings clouds looking down
and a snow looking cloud
that’s spreading around.
Snowflakes of journeys
are gathering true
as a snow looking cloud
just adds to my view.
Seasonal winds blow
with moments quite proud
as I look upward
at a snow looking cloud.
The pages of journals
from its history
a snow looking cloud
creates what I see.
Scenes so transfixing
as I look around
are a snow looking cloud
that right now looks down.

My Flashlight

The dark of night’s
not dark at all
as my flashlight
helps recall.
Lighting pathways
here and there
yes my flashlight
shines a glare.
No the darkness
cannot when
for my flashlight’s
never dim.
It shines brightly
in the night
with its little
beam of light.
There’s no shadows
that scare me,
for my flashlight
helps me see.

Haiku
for Mar 14, 2015

Without a moment
life has a very slim chance
for learning lessons.

When looking upwards
you might see a few snowflakes
or maybe some rain.

One that’s a liar
could find himself being caught
as truth is displayed.

Halfway to today
could find a few thoughts at night
filled with some regrets.

As the day finds end
many thoughts might come alive
asking some questions.

Nobody’s perfect
for we are all imperfect,
but perfect to God.

Looks of another
might not show their true colors.
Don’t be quick to judge.

Painting a picture
can be done with memories
found in a moment.

The depth of your heart
will display as time goes by
either shallow or deep.

Without some windows
there’s so much that we would miss
without stepping out.

Time can be funny
as it ticks on with laughter
and maybe some frowns.

A paper story
can be wadded up and burned,
so make it as heard.

Nearing tomorrow
finds episodes imagined
that may not come true.

Beyond a snowflake
is a wintery turnstile
filled with some breezes.

A brick laid fireplace
displays a chimney so high
with smoke flowing out.

Loss of a loved one
could create an empty void,
but God intervenes.

Finding a footprint
could disclose a good pathway
or maybe not so.

Life in misery
will often find you alone
if you whine too much.

Belief in others
can open a door to yourself
as you look beyond.

Pointless perception
might find you standing alone
because no one cares.

Love can be splendor
if it’s truly from the heart
and not just shallow.

Minutes show seconds
that many might overlook
due to the hours.
