Hello my friends

It’s another day nearer Christmas and it’s
looking more like it every day when I peek
outside at the snow.  We’ve gotten about a
foot or so.  Our landlord just came by to see
how his roof repair held out and he noticed
that the add on of our mobile home roof is
still leaking.  He said he’ll try to get someone
to help him and get back over here as soon
as he can to get it fixed and then get started
pulling up the carpet and all.  Hopefully he
gets it done before the heavy snows begin.
LOL and many of you are saying,  you did
say you already got a foot of snow didn’t ya.
Believe me,  that is not the heavy snow LOL.
Our back storm door is frozen shut.  I busted
the door last night trying to get it opened and
when I got it opened I did a little repair work
and fixed the door,  but the storm door’s once
again frozen shut.  So we are having to wade
through the front addition to get out and let
the boys out to go potty.  Yep,  it’s a regular
nut house around here.  Right now it’s 22 F
at 4:42 PM.  Not too bad yet 🙂  It’s supposed
to be 8 F degrees by morning.  I’m going to
call and order 50 gallons of heating oil first
thing in the morning.  It’s amazing it hasn’t
ran out LOL.  I bought 50 gallons last month.
I’m sure it’s getting LOW.  So that should
cost around 150 dollar or so.  OH well,  we
don’t wanna freeze to death.  Of course we do
still have our little radiator heaters,  but they
do not do much on preventing our pipes from
freezing and also keeping our bathroom warm.
Yep,  wintertime is sneaking up our doorsteps.
Yet it’s still got a few weeks or so before it’s
truly officially here,  but in my book,  it’s here.
I still love the snow,  but don’t care much for
it when it builds up on the house and then in
the middle of the night slides off with a big
CRASH.  It startles us sometimes 🙂  I’ve
kind of gotten used to it,  but the boys still
think they have to bark at it to let us know
something happened hehehe.  Our grandson
wanted to come and spend the weekend with
us,  but this weekend didn’t seem like the best
time for him to visit.  I had yet to of dug out
our car and he would of been coming Friday.
That is when I had to dig the car out of the
snow so we could go into town to do a little
MUCH NEEDED grocery shopping.  Yep our
fridge was getting rather bare.  Plus I would
not of been able to turn up the heat so he
would not freeze in the living room being we
are maybe running on fumes right now LOL.
Yep,  I’m calling first thing in the morning to
get us some more heating oil.  Then if he
wants to come next weekend,  he can and I
won’t worry about him being too cold.  We’ve
got a lot of blankets,  but I just worry about
those things.  I can’t help it 🙂  We keep the
heat set on 60 F at all times.  It uses less
heating oil at that setting then we use our
little radiator heaters to keep us warm in
our PC room and bedroom being we have
the vents closed off in here.  So,  next topic.
Friday,  Judy,  I and the boys took a drive to
town as I said earlier and I did as I do often
and took pictures there and back.  Yeppers,
it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
everywhere we drive.  A lot of people have
their Christmas lights up,  but when we are
moving at about 50 or 60 miles an hour it is
rather difficult to get pictures of them LOL.
I might get some good pictures in the next
week or so,  but don’t hold your breath 🙂
OK,  you can hold your breath,  but it won’t
guaranty anything hehehe.  Judy and I are
hoping that Calvin finishes up with the roof
and all so that we can begin cleaning out
the building and maybe setting up one of
our Christmas trees out there.  I’ve ordered
us a wet/dry shop vac and it should be here
in a week or so.  I figure we’ll have other
needs for it.  Those things are quite useful.
Anyways,  after that is all said and done,
we want to see about having a doggy door
installed in the add on.  That way all we’ll
have to do is open the front door and let
them out to the add on and they can go
through the doggy door to go out to potty
and then come back in out of the weather
to wait for us to let them back in the house.
That’s our plans,  but first things first.  The
roof needs fixing and then the carpet needs
to be pulled.  There are many other things
needing done before we get to the doggy
door LOL.  We’re praying that it is all done
soon so that we can finally enjoy living in
our home.  We’ve been here 9 years now
and we love the area and all.  The boys can
go outside to play and potty and we don’t
worry about them being hit by a car.  We
are far from the road,  plus they both know
better than going to the road.  They’ll sit
and watch me walk out to the road to check
the mail.  We’ve got a couple of good boys.
Even though we have a few obstacles in our
path from time to time,  we know that God
is always watching over us.  He makes sure
that we have what we need to get by,  even
though we might think we need more.  Well
I think it’s time for me to begin my search
back through all that I’ve written here to
see if I can find a good word or phrase that
I can use for the title for today’s brand new
poem.  So it’s away I go to that little place
of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found a
fairly decent title.  Now to see if I can do
anything with it 🙂   Here goes.

Don’t Hold Your Breath

Those times we dream of
or just fantasize
might be our wantings
we don’t realize.
There are some moments
that need not our time,
for they are a figment
that’s found in our mind.
Don’t hold your breath
for a time frame not true,
for the moment you want
might not be for you.
Many times wantings
are lost in the game
found in the portions
we wish to attain.
Keep within prayerful
the things that you need
and let God the Father
to then take the lead
and when your desires
are without access
remember your needs
and don’t hold your breath.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem and
maybe even understood it.  Also I hope that my
rambling didn’t put ya to sleep.  If so,  then you
might of needed a nap LOL.  I wonder if there
is something I have forgotten to mention to you.
Hmm,  nope,  can’t think of anything,  so I guess
it’s time for me to tell you what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with 2 of them
being sort of Christmassy.  I actually wrote 7
extra poems being I wrote some more picture
poems LOL,  so that ups the count to 17 poems.
I also once again wrote 22 haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can find 1
or 2 of either or both that you like.  So,  now I
believe it’s time to begin my search for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but surely not before
I wish you a wonderful weekend or what’s left
of it and a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Ok so,  where
are you hiding this week ya silly off switch?
LOL I think I spy with my 1 good eye,  a bit
of movement from behind my PC monitor 🙂
Yep,  I see ya you silly thing.  You’ve got a
habit of always peeking out to see if I can see
ya and that’s when I see you.  Try harder
next time.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to our brand new book

is at the end of the journal along

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+7 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Heaven’s Display

Sometime in the future
your eyes will behold
scenes filled with passion
as the bible’s foretold.
This place will be scenic,
this place so divine.
This place will encompass
what is yours and mine.
There’ll be ones waiting
for us to walk through
the doorway to Heaven
that glorious view.
Time will be endless
as heartbeats unite
in the essence of Heaven
and God’s Holy Light.
The end is the beginning
for life continues on
as flesh becomes spirit
and all pain is gone.
This is the moment
that’s found on this day
time frames connected
with Heaven’s display.

Train Tracks Through Fall

Pathways,  track ways
time is but a scene
painted with a photo
bright orange and green.
Minutes tick onwards
as train tracks display
time within a porthole
a page from a day.
Autumns book of words
that are found to recall
scenes within scenes
train tracks through fall.
The moment is recorded
a great point and time,
a scene within a scene
that’s found so divine.
The time is a picture
that’s painted with style
time through a doorway
that’s found with a smile.
A time not forgotten
that we now recall
is found within a picture,
train tracks through fall.

The Christmas Lamppost

This post full of color
with a candle aglow
sits within a painting
and a small bit of snow.
It’s oh so glorious
with its flickering light
the Christmas lamppost
that’s deep in the night.
The candle it shimmers
and glimmers its scene
as it shows colors
with garland of green.
Some flowers around it
that flavor the view
the Christmas lamppost
a wonderful hue.
An artist discerned it
as a great point in time
to be painted with love
adorned with a rhyme.
The Christmas lamppost
is alive in a way
painted with the colors
of a wonderful day.

Owl So Wise

Little owl
before my eyes
do you question
how’s and why’s?
Do you see the
moments flair
found within
a breath of air?
Owl so wise
of painted time
do you seek
your own design?
Are the questions
that you ask
just a painted
minutes task?
With each minute
of the day
do you wonder,
do you pray.
Can you see now
time’s disguise
in the moments
owl so wise?

A Summer’s Child

As time displays
a summer’s scene
the day is met
within a dream.
A summer’s child
with heart of gold
displays the light
of stories told.
Two small dogs
will romp and play
as the minutes
tick away.
A summer’s child
displays her view
with everything
that she will do.
She shows a smile
with every glance
as the doggies
romp and prance.
She loves those dogs
as real true friends
a summer’s child
in seasons winds.

Standing In The Rain

A scene with a little girl
in the rain at night
is painted in a picture
with a lamppost light.
Standing in the rain
with her raincoat on
she holds her umbrella
till raindrops are gone.
The picture is magic
as she’s plainly seen
standing in the rain
as a topical theme.
It seems as a story
a writer should tell
standing in the rain
the heart does compel.
Peace is abundant
she does not complain
looking at the lamppost
standing in the rain.

A Ship At Sail

Through the waters
ocean blue
a ship at sail
is in my view.
A scenic time
within the day
a ship at sail
is on its way.
Still as minutes
chart their course
a ship at sail
is oceans force.
Through the waters
stage is set
a ship at sail
I can’t forget.
It’s now pictures
oceans waves
that I remember
distant days.
Time befuddles
how I view
a ship at sail
an ocean blue.

Scenic Clouds

Through my view
of distant days
my mind recalls
a wondrous gaze.
Some scenic clouds
of mornings past
are now but just
a shadows cast.
A scenic view
from long ago
of clouds designs
that I love so.
Then’s remembered
deep inside
those scenic clouds
my mind did ride.
A moment’s time
I flew away
with scenic clouds
of day to day.
A painted sky
or so it seemed
was scenic clouds
I thought I dreamed
Yet the gaze
of long ago
brought me to
a wondrous show.
Magical minutes
that time designed
scenic clouds
a moments mind.

Summers At The Beach

Walking on the beach of time
taking pictures here and there
I find myself envisioning
the sights, God’s love and care.
People holding one another
amidst the summers days
as some others smile real big
within the oceans waves.
A dog just sits and looks at me
to seem with just one wish
to run and play in ocean waves
and maybe catch a fish.
The scene I will remember
as a wondrous point of view.
A place my wife and I would go
to seek a life brand new.
We often find those memories
as now a certain quest
to one day return back to then
for it was the very best.
Time is now a oceans dream
to days far out of reach,
wondrous times of long ago
summers at the beach.

A Christmas Cardinal

With winter’s snow
comes sights to see
those wondrous things
God’s given free.
Sights are flavored
nighttime scenes
a Christmas cardinal
the season brings.
A snowy painting
comes in view
a Christmas tree
seen thereunto.
A Christmas cardinal
is perched upon
a lamppost singing
its great song.
The minutes pass
as life displays
a Christmas cardinal
Christmas days.

Lighthouse Of Eve

A scenic cruise
finds such a sight,
a scene within
the edge of night.
The sun is dipping
out of view
leaving us
a wondrous hue.
Yellow and orange
combined to leave
the sight to find
lighthouse of eve.
We watch the scene
turn into gold
as the minutes
then unfold.
The ship we’re on
is headed back
leaving sights
to turn to black.
But the darkness
will not grieve
with the glimmer
lighthouse of eve.

Wednesday’s Journal

Time’s surmounting
days of week
some with patterns
many seek
Monday’s threshold
opens wide
letting Tuesday
come inside.
Wednesday’s journal
then becomes
middle week
of beating drums.
Then is Thursday
coming fast
leaving many
in the past.
Yet by Friday
ones are glad
Wednesday’s journal
found its fad.
Counting minutes
hump day scenes
Wednesday’s journal
becomes dreams.

Through The Waves

A sailboat glides
on through the waves
a sailing vessel
in its ways.
The wind is strong
and carries on
the sailboats route
from dusk to dawn.
Each wave is seen
as a rocking force
a moment’s time
within its course.
Through the waves
the vessel sails
while people watch
and tell the tales.
The scene’s alive
with moments time
the sailboat sails
with peaceful mind.
The rudders aim
is through the waves
while seeking for
the distant days.

An Autumn Path

When seasons show
their place in time
they can become
an awesome rhyme.
A poem or song
to which ones sing,
a time becomes
what seasons bring.
An autumn path
of painted style
can then become
a moments mile.
A stroke of paint
of times gone by
can then design
a bird to fly.
Even a squirrel
within a tree
an autumn path
can surely be.
So use your mind
to see contrast
the colors of
an autumn path.

A Seaside Ride

One day was seen
a timeless frame,
a moment found
with much to gain.
Horses in stride,
a seaside view
while we looked on
to the sea of blue.
This was a day,
a magical time,
a seaside ride
for us to find.
Snapping pictures
making memories,
this scene we saw
in evenings breeze.
A magical scene
two hearts in stride
was a day long ago
a seaside ride.

The Truck Rolled On

A snowy winter’s scene
is a time frame of white
found as a truck rolls
on the road out of sight.
Big wheels a churning
on a white snowy road
as the truck rolled on
with its real heavy load.
A moment of blissful
on the old road of snow
becomes as a memoir
from where it will go.
Time is but an instant
as snowflakes fall down
as the truck rolled on
to a faraway town.
A snowy winter’s scene
is a time that I recall
when the truck rolled on
and snowflakes would fall.

Doggy Eyes

When walking in the snow
I felt some doggy eyes
watching me and waiting
to give me a surprise.
They both love to watch me
as I head out to the road
to see if we got mail
and then back to our abode.
The journey is real sluggish
while I’m walking in the snow,
but they’re waiting patiently
to see where else I’ll go.
If I say come on boys
they’ll both be on their way
to follow me wherever
I seem to go that day.
But they both know better
than to follow to the road,
for we’ve trained them truly
to wait at our abode.
Yes, we have some good boys
which comes to no surprise
for they’re always waiting
with watchful doggy eyes.

for Dec 3,  2016

Within a moment
holds a life of perspectives
viewed differently.

Change is a motion,
for without any motion
it is just a thought.

A crowded doorway
will hinder the needed path,
so allow for time.

Wintertime’s snowflakes
bring forth a painting of life
that soon comes to life.

Even one that’s wise
will have much folly in life,
for no one’s immune.

Life in a bubble
will prevent you from learning
true lessons of life.

A wanted pathway
that does not belong with you,
might lead to trouble.

The journey of a tree
is that of a mere seedling
with hope to grow tall.

A harbor of ships
holds a passion for sailing
within memories.

Standing in a boat
that is too small to stand in
might cause it to flip.

When watching snowflakes
the moments might seem to pause
as your gaze is caught.

A variety
of a portion of people
create ideas.

Our perceived notions
can often be ridiculed
by other beliefs.

Fondness of colors
creates many things we like,
due to the colors.

Drastic emotions
often acts like dynamite
with a real short fuse.

Life in the fast lane
will one day hit a speed bump
that might be painful.

Beyond the starlight
holds a place of many dreams
that’s reality.

A flickering bulb
exposes its elements
as it lights a room.

Fireflies of night
will light their own excursions
and then hide away.

Living in the past
will prevent you from growing
and finding better.

A fish in a stream
has a path of which to swim
or to become caught.

Snowmen of winter
need someone to create them
so they can exist.

Pearce’s Poetry Pictures
and if you are not in the USA
you can buy it here at Amazon

Me on YouTube
Your frosty friend Bill 🙂


Hello my friends

It’s beginning to look a lot like wintertime
around this place.  It snowed a little bit last
night and there is more snow predicted for
the majority of the week.  Our mobile home
addition is still not finished and we are not
paying rent until it is,  for at the moment it
has an inch of water standing in it with the
roof leaking in it.  So,  he better get on the
ball.  I have taken pictures of how it stands
at the moment and I will use them if he gets
nasty,  but hoping that it doesn’t get to that.
Surely he’ll come and fix it all before winter
gets a full grip on us.  He should of had this
done months ago.  He hauled the addition
out here in August for crying out loud LOL.
So,  time will tell to whether he gets it fixed
or we have to find another place to live,  but
it must be the country being we have our 2
boys Benny and Rocky.  Either the country
or there must be a fenced in yard for them.
BUT,  we are hoping that we do not have to
move,  because we love the location and all.
It’s just the other stuff that is getting on our
nerves and making it hard on us.  Please
keep us in your prayers as well as our dear
landlord that he might get motivated to get
busy our home.  He’s a good man,  but he
has a bit of a procrastination problem LOL.
OK,  so next topic.  Judy and I went over to
her sister Trudy’s house for Thanksgiving
and we had a nice time.  Judy brought a few
things that she cooked such as cake,  green
bean casserole and scalloped corn casserole.
After we all got done feeding our faces,  we
played some trivia games.  Benny and Rocky
had fun playing with their cousins 🙂  They
were some tired pups when we finally got
home about 8:30 that evening.  We were all
quite pooped LOL.  Judy and I have been
watching a few Christmas movies.  There
are a lot of new ones out and most of them
are pretty good.  Right now it’s 33 F degrees
and cloudy.  No snow for this evening or for
tomorrow,  but after that,  who knows hehehe.
So what else is going on here at the Pearce’s
Place?  Well,  that is a good question.  Our
book is getting a slow start selling.  I have
already written 55 more picture poems for
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures Volume 2 hehehe.
I’m reasonably sure that Judy will do a few
more to add to the book as well.  We’re in
hopes that our book catches on.  We’ve put
a lot of hard work into it.  Writing poetry is
one thing,  but writing them to fit into a picture
is another.  It takes me a little bit more time
to write a picture poem and have it to tell a
story about the picture as well as to make it
nice to look at.  Anyways,  let me see if I have
another topic to talk about LOL.  Nope,  can’t
think of anything.  God has still been with us
as we face the trials of day to day life.  Yes,
we have problems,  but we realize that there
are many others that have it a lot worse than
we do.  If you happen to see someone that
is struggling to find happiness,  give them a
kind word and if you have anything to share
with them,  let God’s love to guide you.  We
do our very best to help ones that we are able,
but we’re very limited in our resources.  Give
what you are able,  for even time is a great
commodity to give to someone.  Many times
the giving of ourselves can do much more
than money or things.  Now,  I believe I have
rambled enough and it’s time for me to begin
my journey back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title 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 good
title near the beginning of my rambling LOL.
Now to see if I can do anything with it.  Here
goes.  Keep your fingers crossed hehehe.

A Fenced In Yard

Within our lifestyles
time might become
a fenced in yard
or a moment to some.
Preventing others
from coming inside
or keeping out chances
for time to abide.
A fenced in yard
can protect you true,
but it can also
hinder your view.
Don’t let a fence then
become all you are,
for surely most surely
there’s more by far.
Look on beyond
a fenced in yard
and see God’s truth
of near and far.

There ya go.  I hope that made some sense
to ya.  I also hope that my rambling wasn’t
too boring for ya.  I didn’t have as much to
ramble about as I normally do LOL.  Aren’t
ya glad about that HaHaHa.  Yes,  I know,
I bickered about our living conditions quite
a bit.  You have no idea what trouble we are
in far if he does not get this all fixed.  That
floor of the addition will become ICE and
who knows what else.  So,  we are hoping
that this is all fixed REAL SOON.  Until
then,  we’ll keep on keeping on LOL.  It’ll
take more than that to destroy the Pearce’s
We’re tough cookies hehehe.  So,  is there
anything else that I need to tell you before
I continue with my closing?  Hmm,  well,  it’s
32 F degrees now at 4:24 PM.  Most of the
snow from last night melted fairly quickly
being that the ground is still too warm and
it will take a few days of steady freezing
temperatures to get it cold enough to hold
snow on it.  I had to go outside last night
and brush off the ice and snow from our
satellite dish because we weren’t getting
a TV program signal.  I sprayed the dish
with some PAM so to keep the ice and
snow from sticking to it again.  That’s a
little trick I learned a while back hehehe.
Anyways,  it looks like it is time for me
to be telling you what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  I wrote 10 more
poems with 2 of them being Christmas
poems.  I once again wrote a few more
poems due to the picture poems so that
ups the count to 13 LOL.  Yes of course
I wrote 22 more haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find 1
or 2 of either or both that you like.  Now
I believe it’s time for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or whatever is left of it and a
truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  OK,  so
where are ya laughingly hiding this week
you silly off switch?  Sheesh,  he’s hiding
good this time LOL.  Oh for crying out
loud,  now I see ya.  Dangling from my
PC microphone like an acrobat.  A really
bad acrobat at that LOL.  You just had
to act out didn’t ya hehehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to our brand new book
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures
is at the end of the journal along
with all of the others.  Enjoy 🙂

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

A Lonely Bird

The sky above me
holds in flight
a lonely bird
within my sight
It flies with passion,
it flies with ease,
it flies up high
above the trees.
A lonely bird
with wings of time
flies so high
with peace of mind.
It scans the view
to time and date
to maybe find
a lonely mate.
Then this creature
that flies so high
won’t be lonely
in the sky.
Yet now listen
it is heard
singing songs
a lonely bird.

Gulls In Flight

A scenic day
a wondrous view
gulls in flight,
an ocean blue.
Feathered actors
flying fast
through the scene
a moments past.
Seagulls flying
timeless so
across the way
of us below.
Gulls in flight
create a scene
found within
The ocean breeze
becomes a dance
gulls in flight
a true romance.
A scenic day
becomes a sight
created by
the gulls in flight.

Winter’s Road

Day meets snowfall,
time stands still
while life beckons
its appeal.
A winter scene,
a timeless stage,
winter’s road
of age to age.
Moments doorway
opens wide
allowing winter
deep inside.
Time is essence
painted white
winter’s road
of day and night.
Day sees snowflakes,
past has seen
a winter while
within a dream.
Time is pictured
whitish hue
winter’s road
of thereunto.

Through A Fence

Years ago
I stood to see
the clouds drift on
in front of me.
Through a fence
I saw them well
white and gray
my eyes could tell.
Times momentum
moved with grace
sights I saw
with fence to face.
A view of then
so long ago
through a fence
the clouds bestow.
timeless days
through a fence
I found my gaze.
I took a picture
timeless whence
of the clouds then
through a fence.

A Drive Through Autumn

A simple moments memory
becomes a work of art
painted in a photograph
gleaming to impart.
Time’s the scenes recording
displayed with such a flair
as a drive through autumn
becomes an answered prayer.
Time is but a doorway
to that of which can be
a simple autumn drive then
with blessings given free.
Doorways become windows,
opened for a view
a little drive through autumn
with sights seen freshly new.
True the moment’s splendor
is not that long to show
while a drive through autumn
is where our wheels will roll.
Driving down the roadway
as autumn leaves display
a timeless moments mention
of how they got that way.
The minutes tick so slowly
as wheels go round and round
while anticipation
finds beauty to be found.
On a drive through autumn
the moments come alive
as we’re taking pictures
on our autumn drive.

Trails Through Life

A single path
throughout time
might just be
the best to find
with some bumpy
and some holes
trails through life
have hidden goals.
Time’s a doorway
hidden scenes
some as minutes
rushing streams.
While a story
surely spills
trails through life
are turning wheels.
Teeming with a
roads display
many trails
have things to say.
Words of wisdom
now and then
trails through life
go out and in.
On down pathways
roads of time
there are lessons
which to find.
Some as seasons
found with strife,
some with blessings
trails through life.

An Autumn Scene

Before the colors
leaves of fall
many crops are
fields so tall.
Golden essence
painted hue
an autumn scene
is dreams come true.
Maybe with some
clouds of white
or some darkened
lesser light.
An autumn scene
can be a field
with some crops
the farmers yield.
Yet the story
still unfolds
an autumn scene
with moments goals.
Clouds with raindrops
might display
an autumn scene
of white and gray.
Times with echoes
so serene
this is found
an autumn scene.

A Snowy Trail

The whitish glaze
of fluffy snow
becomes a trail
that’s to and fro.
A snowy trail
of someone’s feet
becomes a time
that’s found complete.
The path is laid
within the snow
a journey made
with winter’s goal.
A snowy trail
to then and there
that someone made
to get somewhere.
A season’s journey
far and wide
finds a moment
time’s applied.
A winter scene
a Christmas view
a snowy trail
to thereunto.

Thanksgiving Blessings

Some fond memories
come into play
as I remember
Thanksgiving Day.
Seasons of joyful
families gather,
yet many sadly
choices would rather.
Life is a picture
painted with style
some with a frown
and some with a smile.
Thanksgiving blessings
are often not clear
until the time’s passed
year after year.
Remembering family
friends and much more,
time can become as
life’s swinging door.
Thanksgiving blessings
are found on a date,
not just the food
you have on your plate.

Dad And The Train

Christmas was magic
as minutes would pass
with dad and the train
and Christmas of past.
He laid out the tracks
for the train to run on
as I watched patiently
while singing a song.
Santa Claus is coming
to town soon they say
as that little train waits
to make its display.
With dad in the floor
connecting the tracks
I wait to see how
the train then reacts.
Smoke from its engine
in classic detail
as it goes chugging
with a choo-choo exhale.
With dad in the floor
and I in the chair
I recall such a time
a Christmassy flair.
Joyful the moments
I now can remember
dad and the train
times in December.
A time long ago
that’s locked in my brain
a Christmas of then
dad and the train.

Without A Glance

As life moves on
the days will pass
and often seem
a bit too fast.
A glance a gaze,
a passing sight,
might display
what’s wrong or right.
Without looking
seeing true
a time or place
might destroy you.
Without a glance
to see for sure
a moment might
be so impure.
So look to see
what’s there to find
and use your glance
to clear your mind.
Don’t just be as
song and dance
with troubled times
without a glance.
See the proof
within the while
an alligator
or crocodile.
Without a glance
of dusk to dawn
might just leave
a bitter wrong.

Passions Beach

The dawn of day
finds two in arms
passions beach
with oceans charm.
The scenes arrival
finds a way
to paint a smile
on every day.
Two together
standing close
passions beach
a photo pose.
The season’s sky
is filled with clouds
passions beach
with oceans loud.
Waves come crashing
to the shore,
passions beach
of evermore.
As the morning
turns to noon
and the evening
comes to swoon,
seasons glisten
timeless scenes
passions beach
within their dreams.
For these lovers
in Heavens reach
stand together
on passions beach.

Beautiful Flowers

Seen on a pathway
some flowers become
essence of springtime’s
own beating drum.
Colors of sunshine
to brighten the days,
beautiful flowers
then which to gaze.
Hibiscus maybe
a flower is found
then as some artwork
when I’m looking down.
Beautiful flowers
create a smile
inside my minds eye
times do compile.
The sweetest portion
of timeless details
brings many blessings
as ships and some sails.
A ship through passion
timeless the hours
finds me with camera
and beautiful flowers.

for Nov 26,  2016

Found by a flower
might be but a mere moment
awaiting the rain.

Without a second
an hour has not a chance,
for minutes can’t thrive.

Charged by some lightning
a storm might become beauty
that lights up the skies.

Wisdom of an owl
is only found in its eyes
for wisdom’s within.

Patience is the key
to finding a moments peace
when life is too slow.

A white snowy trail
might hold a moment of life
within the footprints.

Photos of flowers
don’t harness the aroma,
but just the beauty.

Various choices
become mysterious sights
exposed within time.

Breathing in a breath
does not guarantee a life,
for life needs a path.

Beyond a dreamworld
holds a concocted second
that might be much less.

Challenging someone
that you know little about
could find your demise.

Hate is a poison
that can make the owner sick,
while love could heal them.

A mud puddles display
could be a splashing effect
that gets others wet.

Snowfall of winter
shows signs of its creation
found in the snowflakes.

Pointless is hatred,
for it finds nobody peace,
so cease the hatred.

Losing at a game
does not make you a loser,
but a winner to thrive.

Painting a picture
needs your focus on the painting
and what you’re painting.

Shadows in the night
can be but just a tree limb
or something other.

Exposing ones flaws
can sometimes expose your own
as the light’s on you.

Meaningless chatter
often becomes emptiness
as others listen.

Little known people
can be the most important
that are found silent.

A spirit in want
might need someone to hear them
so they can pass on.

Our Newest book
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures
and if you are not in the USA
you can buy it here at Amazon
My wife Judy’s Poetry books 🙂
Ben Geurts Drawing Art site
and Old Fashioned Christmas site
My Animal’s Greetings site below
One of my friends sites below
and once again the poetry contest at
Me on YouTube
Your frosty friend Bill 🙂


Hello my friends

I hope you have been doing well.  Judy and I
have been still been doing our same old stuff.
Our land lord has yet still not finished with our
mobile home add on.  The roof still leaks in it.
He promised me the other day that he would
get it all finished in the next few days.  LOL
we shall see.  OH well,  life goes on.  There’s
not been much excitement around here other
than Judy having to go and help her brother
practically every other day.  Judy is still doing
her paintings and she has even gotten back
to writing poetry.  Our book has gotten a slow
start selling.  I hope it picks up soon.  It would
be nice to have something to show for my many
years of writing 🙂  Maybe it will catch on one
day soon.  Judy’s books have not been selling
well either,  but hopefully one day,  they too
will begin selling.  No matter,  we’ll survive 🙂
Next topic.  There hasn’t been much going on
around the Pearce’s Place other than Judy and
I with our picture poetry and painting.  Nope,
it’s been pretty quiet of course aside from our
boys causing a ruckus time to time.  Benny
and Rocky love to play chase in the house 🙂
They also love to pester Judy and I for treats,
of which we have sort of cut them off other
that maybe 1 or 2 a day.  Rocky is 7 pounds
over weight and the vet suggested for us to
cut down on their amount of treats.  So,  we
did that and these boys are not happy about
that LOL.  They have dried dog food in their
pans if they’re that hungry 🙂  Our landlord
is here now working on the add-on.  Maybe
he’ll get it fixed pretty quick.  Benny came
in here barking and I told him it’s way too
early for his mom to be home.  Judy left to
go up to the Eagle Lake Nursing home early
this morning with her sisters.  She won’t be
home till maybe around 5 PM this evening.
So I told Benny,  it’s just Calvin and he’ll be
making a lot of noise being he’s working on
the add-on roof.  After he gets it fixed and
all he said he’s going to bring a shop vac
and vacuum the water out of the carpet 🙂
Though he said if it is too bad, that he’ll
buy new carpet for it.  It’ll be great to have
someplace to store our bicycles and stuff.
There is a freezer in it as well as a little
table and Christmas trees.  I am keeping
an open mind about it 🙂  Judy just walked
in the door.  It’s 4 PM.  She got home a lot
earlier than I thought she would.  Christian
(our grandson) came Friday and he spent
the weekend with us.  He’s here with me
right now.  We were watching silly gaming
videos for a while today until I figured that
I needed to get started writing my journal.
We watched some gaming videos yesterday
and Friday as well.  Anyways,  Judy said her
mom was doing as well as to be expected.
Judy brought her brother Ricky with her
when she went up and got a lot of pictures
of them.  She got home just when Calvin,
our landlord was just leaving.  It was a
short stay for him.  Hopefully he comes
back soon and gets the roof fixed and all.
Next topic.  I took the boys out for a little
field trip yesterday (Saturday).  They had
a blast like always.  I took a few pictures
here and there while out in the field.  Our
landlord has hauled a couple more add-ons
out there for some reason.  I think he said
he’s gonna sell them.  OH well.  None the
less,  me and the boys had a good stroll
out in the field.  My feet were aching bad
and I couldn’t walk long,  but they enjoyed
what time we spent out there.  The boys are
confused to which door to use to go out of
and in due to all of the add-on epidemics 🙂
Right now it’s not convenient to let them
out the front door,  because we’ve gotta
wade through the soggy carpet to get to
the outside door on the add-on LOL.  It’s
sort of like a wading pool hehehe.  A very
squishy soggy wading pool LOL.  But we
are praying that it is soon fixed.  Especially
before winter gets its footing.  We need to
be able to get out of our front door,  being
the back cannot be plowed as there is no
driveway back there and he would have to
drive over the sewer line to plow it which
would not be a good thing.  So that’s what
we are dealing with 🙂  I’m sure that there
are many of you with worse problems LOL.
God is still in control.  You might have noticed
that I am steering clear of the politics huh 🙂
Yep,  it’s in God’s Hands and I’m sure that
God will continue to watch over us as He
has always.  We all need to be in prayer
for our government.  That will be more help
that slandering or focusing on the negativity
of truth that finds its way into our lives. The
USA has always had bad and good working
against itself causing friction.  It’s not new.
Let’s you and I start becoming glue for our
nation to pull it together and not allow the
hatred of others to tear it apart.  Just as two
magnets holding to their positive beliefs
they will push each other away,  but it is
when they allow the facts of life to become
the entities of truth,  that the magnets will
then become one and be much stronger for
both halves will be working together instead
of pushing each other apart.  Let’s all pray
together for love and peace for one another.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin my
search back through all that I’ve written here
to see if I can find me a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s brand
new poem.  So it’s away I go to that place
of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe I found a
decent title just a few lines back.  Now to see
if I can do anything with it LOL.   Here goes.

Causing Friction

Like sandpaper
some discern
causing friction
fires burn.
Many people
only see
what they’re wanting
time to be.
Causing friction
many true
create problems,
things they do.
Through the ages
time’s foretold
it was better
times of old.
Yet a persons
might be lessons
causing friction.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem 🙂
I also hope that you enjoyed my ramblings.
Yeppers,  I seem to always have a lot on my
mind and it does tend to give me a headache.
LOL I even think and recite poetry when I’m
on the toilet or in bed trying to sleep.  It just
never seems to give me a break hehehehehe.
The life of a thinker is with very little sleep 🙂
Being that sleeping or pain pills do not work
on me,  the only thing that can give me peace
is to get into prayer,  but even that sometimes
doesn’t help LOL.  So when people say that
my poetry is a gift  I say  it’s a toss up LOL,
gift or curse hehehe.  No,  I know it’s a gift.
It’s just with my health issues,  I am unable
to get but maybe an hours worth of sleep and
that’s on a good day LOL.  So to get off of my
ailments,  I reckon it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you almost every week and that is,
I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
10 more poems,  but no Christmas poems this
week.  Maybe next week.  Oh yea,  most of the
poems are ones I did for picture poems and I
did 2 extra which ups the number to 12 poems.
I also wrote once again 22 haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope that you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like.  Now,
I guess it’s time for me to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a most wonderful and blessed week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now,  where pray tell is that off switch trying
to hide this time?  Hmm,  I think I see some
movement behind my Halloween crazy eyes 🙂
LOL yeppers,  there ya are right behind the
left goofy eye hehehe.  Ya made the left eye
to sort of dangle a bit you silly thing hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to our brand new book
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures
is at the end of the journal along
with all of the others.  Enjoy 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+2 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

A Quick Photograph

One day a drive
found futures past
and so I took
a quick photograph.
The scene was mild
with essence gold,
a time and place
with stories told.
A quick photograph
was all it took
to give my future
another look.
For the moment
I remember
lives and thrives
a burning ember.
A time I took
a quick photograph
that reminds me of
the moments past.

Upon The Dock

A seaside view
with waters gazed
finds one standing
camera raised.
Glimmering scenes
that find his view
leave a footprint
waters blue.
Upon the dock
he stands to find
all the ships
of time to time.
The stage is set
for another day
upon the dock
a timeless way.
Upon the dock
the man procures
some photographs
of bait and lures.
Some fishermen
are heading out
through the waves
without a doubt.
Yet this man
still stands alone
upon the dock
as time has shown.
A moments time,
a seasons clock
is found one day
upon the dock.

Moon Through The Clouds

A dark night of splendor
finds a moon bright to see
found in the night sky
up high above me.
Clouds all have gathered
to create such a gaze
as moonlight drifts through
in a foggy like haze.
The moon is an essence
that implores such view
in the night sky above me
with a wonderful hue.
The clouds seem to dance
as they pass right on by
exposing the glimmer
of the moon in the sky.
Scenes seem to awaken
as the moonlight appears
bringing alive moments
of our yesteryears.
The dark night of splendor
is as time that enshrouds
the view of the skylight,
moon through the clouds.

Sunflower Dreams

A field holds magic,
a yellowish hue
sunflower dreams
to one day come true.
Then as they bloom
there is such a sight
sunflower dreams
found in the sunlight.
Scenes in springtime
and summer to grow
sunflower dreams
have much to bestow.
They show their colors
yellow and brown
when in a moment
their beauty is found.
There might just be one
that stands out the best
sunflower dreams
with a magical zest.
Yet with a camera
these wonderful scenes
are then recorded
sunflower dreams.

Days Of Old

An old jalopy
a memory
a car of time
a sight to see.
I saw one day
a timeless view
a car of old
that looked as new.
An old convertible
of times partake
purple by color
there was no mistake.
It shined real bright
as the man drove by
while I reflected
with a wanting sigh.
This car of time
was oh so bold
looking as new
the days of old.

Bluebonnet Field

With time as a flower
and thought but a phase
a bluebonnet field is
a moment to gaze.
Scenes within patterns
of colors so bright
a bluebonnet field is
found such a sight.
Seeming as a story
that’s written in time
a bluebonnet field is
for our eyes to dine.
Minutes emotions
are painted so blue
flowers of springtime
with summers hue.
Each day is displayed
as a pictures emotion
found as a turnstile
bluebonnet ocean.
Footsteps of splendor
are a moment to yield
time frames surmounted
a bluebonnet field.

Standing With A Smile

Walking through the grasses
where sunflowers bloom
there was a minutes moment
that a time came attune.
Standing with a smile
as the daylight was seen
life became a journey
with a brisk morning gleam.
Passing through the minutes
the hours did display
a smiling face of moments
that shattered all the gray.
A personal time experience
explored within the mind
that took an expedition
throughout a point and time.
The sunflowers beauty
was a magical style
that gave birth to me then
standing with a smile.

The Lone Butterfly

A milk thistle blooming
displays such a sight
a purplish hue
in the bright shining light.
A lone butterfly
finds a place to land
upon the milk thistle
that displayed so grand.
The moment was magic
as the butterfly flew
in a field full of thistles
that were blooming as new.
Sunlight was beaming
on the sight then that day
as the lone butterfly
soon flew away.

Rocks And Pebbles

Life is rhythms
on the ground
rocks and pebbles
to be found.
Earthly shadows
sliding through
rocks and pebbles
in my view.
Some are larger,
some so small
rocks and pebbles
build a wall.
Some are pathways
for a road
rocks and pebbles
heavy load.
Minutes counted
become found
rocks and pebbles
on the ground.
Life’s a painting
some as gray
rocks and pebbles
day to day.
Many sights
come into view
rocks and pebbles
Scenes created
so unique
rocks and pebbles
some antique.
As some paintings
time fulfills
rocks and pebbles
create hills.
Maybe mountains
time bestows
rocks and pebbles
our Earth grows.

A Walking Bridge

On a days journey,
a footpath is seen
found up above
a fast moving stream.
A picture of then
becomes such a sight
a journey to town
at such a great height.
A timeless theme
of a crossing array
brings forth the sight
of another fine day.
A time with a trestle
and bridge to support
often finds many
their only resort.
One’s head to town
on a non driving path,
a walking bridge
not moving too fast.
Time is a window
seen from the view
a walking bridge
to then thereunto.

Reflected Passion

A fisherman’s journey
begins as a quest
reflecting the passion
life at its best.
Preparing his vessel
for a journey to sea,
a moment’s reflection
of times history.
His ship is his home
for a passionate ride,
a seafaring vessel
that’s filled full of pride.
The ocean is waiting
as the captain prepares
food for the galley,
a crew waited shares.
Time is the utmost
to keep in control,
for procrastination
will surely take toll.
The seafaring vessel
in appropriate fashion
will seek for the sea,
its reflected passion.

Beacon In The Sky

Sights up above me,
scenes white and gray
as sunshine is shining
a beacon for the day.
Seeming fluorescent
the sun shines through,
clouds up above me
create a great view.
A beacon in the sky
is a bright ray of light
coming from the sun
as a magical sight.
This is but a moment,
I captured the view
a beacon in the sky
with a radiant hue.
Beaming as a threshold
to then and that day
a beacon in the sky
is a magical way.
For as a window
the clouds don’t deny
while they’re displaying
the beacon in the sky.

Life is a journey
that many will stumble
yet find the answers.

Various turnstiles
open up with illusions
and close fast with fear.

Time is a moment
that a clock will show seconds
amounting to life.

Knowing your own self
can prevent others choices
from becoming yours.

Beyond mysteries
is a doorway to hopeful
found in a blessing.

Windows of a heart
can become clouded in time
throughout deception.

Bluebonnet memoirs
are blessings of a photo
that time remembers.

Too much too little
can become an empty hole
filled with only air.

The sight of today
can become as memories
within our shadows.

Knowing right from wrong
makes you the judge and jury
of your own conscience.

Need is a portion
that often becomes confused
with what we’re wanting.

Looking too deeply
might implode your way of life
and lose you in fear.

Morning brings doorways
to be opened throughout time
that might not be right.

When missing someone
they’ll live in your memories
as a point and time.

When looking forwards
the view from within the past
can lose its anger.

Various heartbeats
are as excited drummers
searching for a band.

Lengthy bits of rage
can become poison for life
killing your chances.

A flower’s doomsday
is an un watered moment
that has no sunshine.

Gradient hillsides
give little chance for footing
and more chance for slide.

Odorless flowers
rely on their own beauty
to keep them alive.

Minutes and hours
become the essence  of life
that ones misconceive.

Throughout history
scientist have changed their views
on all that they think.

Our Newest book
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures
and if you are not in the USA
you can buy it here at Amazon
My wife Judy’s Poetry books 🙂
Ben Geurts Drawing Art site
and Old Fashioned Christmas site
My Animal’s Greetings site below
One of my friends sites below
and once again the poetry contest at
Me on YouTube
Your frosty friend Bill 🙂


Hello my friends

It’s been a rather boring week around here
aside from all of the politics and anger that’s
attached to it.  No I am not going to discuss
it.  I feel there has been enough said about
all of that through the media.  LOL I guess
you could consider my journal media,  but not
that kind.  So,  what else has happened here
at the Pearce’s Place that’s worth talking about.
Well,  There has not been anything more done
to our home add on.  Judy and I stopped at
our landlords house this afternoon and Judy
had a talk with him.  He said that he will come
tomorrow and inspect the add on and if it is
damaged too much from the rain then he’ll
tear it down.  He had put off doing anything
with it and it had rained in it multiple times.
The carpet and floor is SOAKED.  So we
shall see what happens there.  I have made
up my mind,  I am not going to let it stress
me out as much as I had before.  I think I
had another stroke the other night due to it
and all of the political arguments that have
been occurring on Facebook.  I cannot let
myself get stressed like that again.  I want
to spend a few more years with Judy and
the boys as well as see my daughter and
her soon to be husband.  So levity,  here I
come LOL.  There has not been much of a
chance for me to take pictures this passed
week.  Judy’s been some doing painting,  but
even that had slacked off due to all of the
epidemics that have been happening.  We
have both gotten back into the swing of
things and are back to work with our poetry
and paintings.  We figure if it was a meteor
fixing to hit the Earth,  there would be little
we could do about it,  and so this is now that
meteor LOL so why worry about what we
have no control over 🙂  LOL All of those
with their underground bunkers are nuts
if you ask me HaHaHa.  Not the Tornado
shelters 🙂  I’m talking about the bunkers
that are supposed to protect them from a
Earth shattering event such as a bomb or
a meteor.  I figure this,  what happens will
happen and if it’s time for me to go,  then I
shall wave goodbye LOL if I have a chance.
Each day in this world gives hope for another
miracle.  Don’t just focus on the nightmares.
Find the miracles no matter how small they
may be.  I’m sitting here munching on some
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  I know,  I’ll
pay the piper for this LOL.  Hey I already
spend half of my life in the bathroom,  so
I might as well enjoy it hehehe.  Judy has
just headed over to her brother’s house to
help him with his prescriptions.  We picked
them up while we were at Walmart when we
were headed to town this afternoon.  We also
did a bit of grocery shopping,  being that
our refrigerator and freezer was getting
rather bare.  It would help if our books
were selling.  So far all of those that said
they would buy a book if I ever published
one haven’t bought one LOL.  Oh well,
if you want something good to buy for a
Christmas present,  you can buy one of
Judy’s books or our newest that’s got a
129 of my picture poems in it and about
20 or so of hers in it.  LOL don’t you just
love my sales pitch!  I can’t help it,  Judy
and I have put a lot of hard work into this
new book and she’s put a ton of hours
of sweat and tears into all of her books.
Ok,  so next topic.  The boys wanted to
go with Judy when she headed out to her
brothers house,  but when I called them
they came running and I gave them both
a treat.  They’re both lying in their little
doggy beds right beside me now.  Rocky
has gotten to where he likes to sleep
next to me when we go to bed.  He curls
up in the floor right beside me every
night and sleeps for a few hours and
then after a bit he’ll stroll over to the
other side of the bed and climb in his
doggy bed next to Benny which is the
side of the bed that Judy sleeps on.  We
love our boys.  Though we will be happy
when we can let the boys out the front
door,  especially being it won’t be long
before there will be too much snow out
the back door for them to get out.  No
way for our landlord to plow back there.
Though it is easier to let them out of
the back door hehehe being it is in our
bedroom and all we’ve gotta do is get
up and open the door and they run out
and do their thing and then Rocky will
bark to let us know when they are ready
to come back in.  Anyways,  hopefully
all of this is resolved soon.  Calvin told
Judy that he doesn’t want to lose us as
tenants.  We’ve lived here for over 8
years,  almost 9.  So,  It looks like we
will be OK.  God is still in control as
He has always been.  We might not like
the outcome of situations,  but He can
make good out of the worst situations
So,  even though things might seem
bleak at the moment,  remember that
a rainbow might be just around the bend.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin
my search back through all that I have
written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem.  So,
it’s away I go,  to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.   I think I found
a decent title about half way back in my
rambling.  Now to see if I can do anything
with it.  Here goes….

Sweat And Tears

Trials and errors,
sweat and tears
lessons come
from many years.
Time’s a window
opened wide
to let decisions
come inside.
Sweat and tears
from life long ways
becomes patterns
timeless days.
Through the scenes
of far and wide
minutes show
what’s all applied.
Maybe written,
maybe said
sweat and tears
of do and dread.
Through our past
can grow good years
learned from many,
sweat and tears.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and I didn’t
irritate ya to much hehehe.  Also I hope that
you liked the poem and maybe even sort of
understood it.  There are times that I find my
own self confused about what I’ve written 🙂
The words come to me as a puzzle to be put
together and let the words fall in place.  Yes,
I know,  weird huh 🙂  I don’t question it,  I
just do what God has instilled in me to do and
that is write my thoughts.  I just let the boys
back in.  They had to go out and go potty a
little while ago.  Though Rocky was not at
the door barking being I believe they were
both looking for Judy/mom to come home 🙂
She should be home soon.  LOL Rocky’s in
here with one of his squeaky toys and he’s
wanting me to play with him.  Benny was in
the living room playing with another squeaky
toy,  but he has even strolled in here hehehe.
They are both right behind me staring at me
with those play with me eyes 🙂  I stopped
for a brief to play with them,  but back to
the journal.  I need to get this done,  but
it is hard hehehe being Rocky is running
all over the place with squeaky toys and
stopping ever so often to look at me LOL.
Benny has decided to lie down in his doggy
bed next to the radiator heater.  I had to
go check on Rocky.  he got too quiet and
when he gets quiet,  it means he is up to
no good LOL.  He knocked the pillows off
of our bed and tumped over Judy’s trash
can.  Nothing big LOL.  Anyways,  it’s
time for me to tell you what I tell you
almost ever week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
10 more poems,  but as normal here lately
I wrote a few more due to the picture
poetry,  6 to be more precise and 2
of the poems are sort of Christmassy.
I also wrote once again 22 more haiku
for all of the haiku lovers out there.
I hope that you can find at least 1 or 2
of either or both that you like.  Before
I wind this up,  I want to again pitch
our brand new book Pearce’s Poetry
Pictures.  You can find a link to the
book at the very end of the poetry
and haiku along with links to all of
Judy’s other books.  I hope that you
will tell your friends about them.  So
Ok,  enough with my sales pitch 🙂
Now to see if I can find that hardly
elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Ok,  so where are you
hiding this week?  I don’t see any
movement as I usually do hehehe.
LOL I take that back.  I just saw
a bit of movement behind my nose
drops hehehe.  Ya almost toppled
the bottle didn’t ya?  Guess what?
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

P.S  A link to our brand new book

is at the end of the journal along
with all of the others.  Enjoy 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+6 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

The Moon So Bright

When night falls near
with stars in sight
a scene is found
the moon so bright.
A sweet round orb
that’s often seen
as a magical story
a wonderful dream.
A large round  ball
that shines in the sky
is a momentous scene
for birds that fly.
Seeing their imprints
in sync with the moon
and hearing the sounds
of a nearby loon.
Each moment found
is a pure delight
blessings from Heaven
the moon so bright.

Snowy Trees

Winters of Christmas
might not have a sign
of Christmas lights lit up
in the dark night to shine.
Yet with a glimmer
of a white snowy view
Christmas is welcomed,
a most wonderful hue.
Snowy trees standing
with branches so high
in the wintertime’s scenes
as snowflakes will fly.
Deep snow has gathered
to paint many sights
scenes within Christmas,
the days and the nights.
Each moment’s flavor
displays snowy seas
and when you look up
you see snowy trees.
Then when the wind blows
the tree limbs will sway
shaking the snow off
their daily display.
Yet as the snowflakes
continue to fall
those white snowy trees
might just catch it all.
The Christmastime scene
then continues its while,
those white snowy trees,
more snow to compile.

Endearing Thoughts

The skies of gray
might find your face
with empty thoughts,
an untied lace.
Endearing thoughts,
can become seen
when clouds of gray
become a stream.
Then some blue
will find a way
to show on through
the clouds of gray.
Endearing thoughts
of wondrous things
can enhance
as angels sing.
It’s with the sight
beyond the sound
that brings us peace
to then be found.
The stages seen
that times expose
might be thorns
of a gorgeous rose.
Peace will come
as clouds of time
sent as love
from God Divine.
Many blessings
will defrost
through the gray
endearing thoughts.

Painted Poppy

Little flower
orange display
painted in a
wondrous way,
won’t you sing
a song of joy
as the painter
did employ.
Painted poppy
scene of time
you are now
a painted rhyme.
Seen by others
timeless hue
painted poppy
someone drew.
Your true essence
came alive
as the painter
did contrive.
Painted poppy
stems of green
now you’re here
a wondrous scene.

A Small Waterfall

A time was found
one summers day
when life became
an active play.
We saw some geese
in waters blue
that rested there,
then off they flew.
Right beside them
was a stage,
a scene created
age to age.
A small waterfall
poured its mind
into the way
of time to time.
We stood watching
for a while
snapping pictures
with a smile.
The moment passed
for futures call
to leave the sight
a small waterfall.

Beyond Anger

Threads of life
are tied in knots
as ones anger
becomes lost.
Lengthy patterns
stories told
minutes ticking
time so bold.
Beyond anger
life is found
turning smiles
to upside down.
Echoes being
all that’s said
when our anger
fills with dread.
Signs of times
with different speeds
anger becomes
planted seeds.
Then the future
is in danger
finding fragments
beyond anger.

Whisperings Of Nature

A silent bird flying
in a blue cloudy sky
gives but a whisper
that life can’t deny.
Momentary minutes
will become such a view
whisperings of nature
in the sky oh so blue.
Scenes are the stages
with aromatic ways
whispering the settings
of some wonderful days.
Nature with it’s voices,
grasses and seas
becomes many pictures
with flowers and trees.
Whisperings of nature
that so many hear
are a cow,  a buffalo,
elk,  moose or deer.
Meadows of scenery
come alive as a dream
whisperings of nature
of a fast moving stream.
A story that is written
as words that many see
becomes but a voice
within our history.
Whisperings of nature
as a living painted view
becomes as a moment
beneath the sky of blue.

Distorted Views

The days, the ways
our times record
become as paths
some can’t afford.
Distorted views
of moments gaze
becomes so often
others ways.
The times, the dimes
throughout our lives
are with questions
hows and whys.
Questions delusions
so many find
in their distorted
points in time.
The scenes,  the means
of moments news
is sometimes just
distorted views.

Long Awaited

Time for daylight,
time for dark,
time for moments
to embark.
Scenes discovered
timeless so,
long awaited
to and fro.
Minutes gather
now and then,
long awaited
will begin.
Yet impatience
ever more
becomes as
an open door.
A time to find
a new today,
long awaited
will and way.
Themes of dreams
come in sight
maybe wrong
or maybe right.
It’s with patience
time will show
long awaited
where to go.

A Painted Stream

A piece of art
a timeless show
a painted stream
will surely flow.
Seen as abstract
then foretells
a painted stream
that time impels.
Waters flowing
sights to see
found beside
a real tall tree.
Then the essence
waters blue
becomes what
the viewers view.
With a moment
time becomes
a painted stream
that surely runs.
Through the trees
to then expose
a painted stream
of where it flows.

The Buffalo

Fields of grasses
growing green
paint a picture
as a dream.
A buffalo
within the view
is painted as
a dream come true.
Mountains gaze
is found to be
with buffalo
to surely see.
The buffalo
is such a sight
that it stands
with will and might.
A painted scene
becomes a time
the buffalo
the great design.

Santa Claus Lane

One day on a journey
I saw such a sight
a man on the corner
that was to my right.
He looked like old Santa
on Santa Claus Lane
as he stood by the sign
that did so proclaim.
He had a white beard
and red jacket on
as he just stood watching
while I walked along.
This man with whiskers
looked clearly at me
with a twinkle in his eyes
so clear I could see.
He had a great smile
and a wonderful laugh
as he went Ho Ho Ho
while I walked on past.
On Santa Claus Lane
I’ll remember so clear
that I saw him one day
before Christmas was here.
He still stands awaiting
in my dreams in the night
on Santa Claus Lane
a wonderful sight.
The scene is a moment of
Christmas divine
that will forever
be found on my mind.

A Birthday Wish

Another age,
another time
a birthday wish
for things to find.
Candles burning
all about
a birthday wish
to then blow out.
Time’s a minute
gathered true
ages counted
more to view.
A birthday wish
so many find
as they’re seen
a point and time.
The stage is set
with birthday cake
ages found
with more to make.

Upon a fence
of wood one day
I saw some daisies
found in May.
Now they’re just
a memory
a painted sight
for me to see.
The painter painted
them so sweet
looking good
enough to eat.
These daisies seem
to be alive
upon the fence
they do contrive.
Climbing up
the daisies grow
as the painter
paints them so.
Then as artwork
they become
a painters work
that’s surely done.

The Shadow Owl

A midnight clear
displays a sight
amidst the moon
that shines at night.
The shadow owl
it looks around
through the sky
and on the ground.
Within the scene
a tree had grown
to give the owl
a hooting home.
A shadow found
as branches sway
through the night
and into day.
The shadow owl
a scary scene
can become
moments dream.
Found by night
a moonlight fowl
is a scene
the shadow owl.

A Little Smile

When there’s troubled
sights to see
find a doorway
set it free.
Using peaceful
as your tool
can end moments
as the fool.
A little smile
from days gone by
can be helpful
and here’s why.
The little smile
that others see
might just blossom
you and me.
Becoming scenes
of day and night
a little smile
ones can unite.

for Nov 12,  2016

Time is a moment
that many will waste away
thinking they have time.

Life is a feather
that floats in our existence
with each breath of air.

Within a doorway
answers might be very clear,
but the wrong answers.

Listing your problems
will not guarantee changes,
for we need action.

Looking out windows
can often cause us to dream
of a better life.

Judging each other
could become an empty life,
for we are unique.

Blindly making steps
could land you in a puddle
filled with much regret.

A forest of trees
can become a grave of life
as fear fills the void.

Trouble comes knocking
at the most unprepared times,
so stay on your guard.

Without some water
a flower has not a chance
to show its beauty.

The seasons of sun
become doorways to winter
as snowflakes will fall.

Shadows in the night
can become things that we fear
if we allow them.

Shelter from a storm
can often become the storm
as we run to it.

Stars seen glimmering
might of expired years ago
and be only light.

Harvesting changes
does not promise a good crop,
for it might poison.

In the afterlife
ones spirits might float freely
seeking other life.

Need is confusion
while want becomes many needs
lost in a whirlwind.

Imagining fear
can make it to come to life
as fear takes over.

As a life finds end
a new beginning awaits
filled with mysteries.

Allowing troubles
to become your every thought
will not give you peace.

Moonlight on meadows
provides a painter with scenes
to put on canvas.

The midnight hours
hold the keys to perception
that darkness can hide.

Our Newest book
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures
and if you are not in the USA
you can buy it here at Amazon
My wife Judy’s Poetry books 🙂
Ben Geurts Drawing Art site
and Old Fashioned Christmas site
My Animal’s Greetings site below
One of my friends sites below
and once again the poetry contest at
Me on YouTube
Your frosty friend Bill 🙂


Hello my friends

It’s been a cold rainy weekend over this way.
Although on a good note,  our landlord finally
made some steps for the addition to our home 🙂
and yesterday (Saturday) he came and started
attaching the addition to our house so it won’t
be raining in it every time it rains.  He’s still
got a lot of work to do.  Judy and I will most
likely pull up the carpet that’s in it,  because it
is ruined.  We might just buy some area rugs
for it,  but not before the floor dries up LOL.
Calvin said he was going to come back in the
next couple of days and try and finish up with
the sealing of the addition and then hook up
the electricity to it.  It’s finally coming along.
We bought us some solar motion activated
security lights that I’m going to put up here
and there around our house so we can see.
In another bit of news,  today (Sunday) is my
loving wife’s birthday.  Judy and I are now
the same age,  again LOL.  For a couple of
months I’m her old man being I turned 60 in
August 🙂  Judy wanted Chinese food for her
birthday and so she ordered some from Tangs
and I ordered me a pizza from Pizza Hut.  We
have both finished feeding our faces and so
I figured it was time for me to begin writing
my journal.  I haven’t taken many pictures
this week,  being it has been mostly cloudy
and rainy most of the week which makes for
blurry pictures.  Next topic.  Our new book
is now for sale.  I hope that you will buy a
copy of it.  I’m sure that you will love it 🙂
I’ll put a hyperlink for you to buy it below.
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures  if this link does
not work,  then there will be another link
to it in the other half of my rambling LOL.
Anyways,  we’re hoping that many will buy
it.  There’s over 150 picture poems in it 🙂
I have already begun writing for volume 2.
So what else is going on around this place?
Well,  Judy is still painting up a storm and
with ever stroke of her brush she’s getting
better.  I am so proud of her.  She’s turned
into quite the artist.  My gift is merely in
poetry LOL.  Although I do have a pretty
good ability with photo’s and working with
my photo programs,  being that’s what I do
creating my picture poetry.  So,  what else
is going on at the Pearce’s Place?  Hmm,
well,  Judy’s brother Ricky is finally out of
the nursing home.  Judy and her sister Barb
went and picked him up Friday and he is now
back at his home.  He’s been in panic mode
and called here for Judy many times already.
He called early 4 AM this morning because
he had a nightmare.  I hope and pray that
he gets at more peace being back home.
He wanted to come home and now he is
home.  Though all of the reworking and
fixing up that Judy and others have done
have confused him.  His house was not
livable before and they have all repaired
and remodeled his house to be wheelchair
accessible.  So send Ricky your prayers
as he tries to continue with  his life for the
while he has to live.  His health is not good.
Anyways,  next topic.  Benny and Rocky
are still as ornery as ever.  Yesterday when
our landlord came to work,  he brought his
granddaughter and she loves the boys 🙂
So I baby-sat while he worked on our house.
I read her some of my poetry about Benny
and Rocky.  I’ve written quite a few poems
about them as well as about Benny and
Milo.  Other than all of that,  our house is
what many would call,  BORING hehehe.
Not much going on.  The boys are right
behind me now begging for treats,  but
our vet said we needed to cut back on the
treats because Rocky was 7 pounds over
weight.  I’m sure he has lost it now,  but
we still think we need to limit the treats
to being as treats and not giving them to
them every time they want one LOL 🙂
They’re learning that when I say NO,
I mean NO,  not maybe 🙂  I just turned
back around to my computer and they
went back to their doggy beds and laid
down.  We love them and that is why we
do as we do.  I’ve seen many completely
go overboard spoiling their pets and we
don’t want to be one of them.  It’s not
healthy.  They’re happy little boys and
we love them.  I’m going to try and get
the solar light that I bought at Walmart
up tomorrow so that at least it will make
it to where we can see to get in the house.
Judy ordered a few cheap ones off of the
internet that when we get them,  I’ll find
a place to put them.  In the mean time
this one that I bought from Walmart
is a really good one and has two lights
that are adjustable and really bright 🙂
Hopefully the boys aren’t too small to
activate it LOL.  We shall see hehehe
literally,  we shall see 🙂  We can see
God’s mighty hands at work in our lives
as each day comes to pass.  We have
our problems,  but they’re not the end.
Yes,  Judy and I have our bad days that
we get angered,  but those days pass
on by leaving a rainbow of peace to
be seen after each storm.  I know no
one that does not have a bad day once
in a while.  It’s human to lose it time to
time.  It’s all in how you lose it that can
become either a better life or a destiny
to Hell.  Learn to try and see both points
of view and try not to let your ego to be
as a troublemaker.  Sometimes even you
may find times that you need to say that
you’re sorry even if it is not your fault.
Someone needs to offer the olive branch
no matter right or wrong.  An over sized
ego can become a hindering block for
the future.  The fact is,  that we all make
mistakes and need to ask forgiveness.
Give your life to God and let peace be
the rainbow in your life.  Now,  I believe
it’s time for me to begin my journey back
through all that I’ve written here to see
if I can find a good word or phrase that
I can use for the title for today’s brand
new poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that lil
place of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I
may have found a decent title just a few
lines back.  Now to see what I can do
with it LOL.  Here goes.

A Rainbow Of Peace

The sense of a style
with a troublesome heart
can find then a cloud
with a great work of art.
A rainbow of peace
in a moments despair
can become as your view
with a minute of prayer.
The layers of life
in the patterns we see
might be the very thing
to be what should be.
A rainbow of peace
through angers own view
can become as a page
with a wonderful hue.
Allowing the storms
of time to pass on,
a rainbow of peace
can show a new dawn.
While letting blessings
of God’s Only Son
to begin as a pathway
new life then begun.
Allowing your anger
to surely then cease,
you can then see clearly
a rainbow of peace.

Well,  there ya go.  I know it’s not that good
of a poem,  but hopefully you understood it 🙂
I also hope that you enjoyed my rambling at
least a little bit LOL.  If not,  then,  oh well 🙂
Life goes on.  I just did a goofy little Happy
Birthday dance for Judy hehehe.  The boys
wanted to get in on it.  LOL I was just being
silly as I am often hehehe.  If ya don’t believe
me,  then ask her,  she’ll tell ya 🙂  Yeppers,
our little home can get a little bit bizarre at
times when I get bored LOL.  The boys love
it because they love to play.  LOL we were
heading out to go to town to pick up Judy’s BD
dinner and the boys thought we were going
for a field trip and they were both running
like the wind headed out to the field and we
had to holler at them to tell them nope,  we
are going for a car ride.  It took a little bit
of convincing,  but they both came running
back and hopped in the back seat hehehe.
OK so what else do I need to tell ya????
Oh yea,  at the end of the poetry and haiku
along with all of the other links you will
find the links to buy our brand spanking
new book.  We do hope that you will buy
our book.  I’m sure you will love it.  Buy
one for a Christmas gift.  Anyways,  it’s
come to that time that 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
2 of them being sort of Christmassy.  Of
course I wrote 6 more poems due the
fact of my picture poem creations so I
guess I’ll include them.  Not the pictures,
just the poems LOL.  I also once again
wrote 22 more haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find 1
or 2 of either or both that you like.  Now
to find that confounded off switch that
is so horrible at hide and seek,  but not
before I wish you a wonderful weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now, to find that
ornery off switch.  Hmm,  I thought I
heard my aspirin bottle rattle.  LOL
I did,  and there ya are you silly thing.
Hiding behind my bottle of Aspirins.
The bottle is clear you know hehehe.
Maybe try and look for a new spot to
hide next week.  You’ve got all week 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to our brand new book

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+6 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Red Striped Lighthouse

This lighthouse of colors
red and white
warns the ships
that sail at night.
This red striped lighthouse
stands so strong
telling a story
dusk to dawn.
The waves come crashing,
sounds at night
as this lighthouse
shines its light.
It warns sea vessels
to stay away
for there are rocks
in nearby waves.
The light it shines
so brightly true,
helps sea captains
sail on through.
This red striped lighthouse,
with its glow
helps sea captains
to and fro.

Tears Of A Nation

Beyond the facts
the truth is found
tears of a nation
that many put down.
The sadness within
is a story to tell
the truth of a nation
that many impale.
Their land is blessed,
but many don’t care
for American Indians
and treat them unfair.
They are the natives,
for the truth is told,
yet from the beginning
so many have stole.
Tears of a nation
are falling like rain
for their lives are filled

Enchanted Forest

Inside a dreamworld
a yellow moon glows
in an enchanted forest
where hopeful bestows.
Time is a moment
that but only exist
within someone’s painting
with an enchanted mist.
The scene comes alive
as the story unfolds,
an enchanted forest
that a viewer beholds.
A moment so magical
that enhances sight,
an enchanted forest
of a magical night.
It has been painted
with colors so fine,
an enchanted forest
of a magical time.

Seas Of Morning

Through the minutes
seconds find
seas of morning
on the mind.
Waves as blessings
answers still,
seas of morning
times fulfill.
As a painting
sunshine days,
seas of morning
display waves.
Scenes with essence
painted true,
seas of morning
in my view.
Waters glimmer
in  my eyes,
seas of morning
from the skies.
Time’s discovered
in the scenes,
seas of morning
blues and greens.
Waves of sunshine
become found,
seas of morning
sight and sound.
Then as moments
move to noon,
seas of morning
seek the moon.

Looks Like Waves

The sky above
with colors haze
looks just like
the oceans waves.
Each pattern made
is such a scene,
looks like waves
a fervent dream.
Sweet pastels
within the skies,
looks like waves,
a sea gull flies.
Within desire
of God’s own hand,
looks like waves
can become land.
A beach,  a shore
with memories
looks like waves
in deep blue seas.
Time begins,
clouds dissipate
to unload skies
God’s real estate.
A picture taken
is blessings true,
that moments time,
a wondrous view.
Looks like waves
begin their flight,
day to day
and night to night.
Seeming endless
might be found,
looks like waves
with oceans sound.
Seasons change
with you and me,
looks like waves
can be the sea.

Moons Reflection

A momentous scene
with reflected hue
is painted with paint
in a sea of blue.
The moons reflection
shining so bright
is a magical moment
found in the night.
The light it glimmers
a gaze to see
the moons reflection
in the deep blue sea.
It’s a moment in time
that comes alive
with passion and love
of a yellow moon size.
This moon it glows
with a yellowish tint
the moons reflection
with its imprint.
The moons reflection
displays its heart
within the water
as a work of art.
The stage is set
with a painters mind
a view of life
a wonderful kind.
The moons reflection
as pure as gold
is a painters thought
a story told.

This Owl In Blue

Upon a perch
this owl in blue
sits to watch
a wondrous view.
It’s big round eyes
look out to see
the sights around
of you and me.
It watches life
go strolling by
this owl in blue
so very high.
The branches sway
as it holds fast
to scenes of time
as shadows cast,
This owl in blue
is a memory
a painted sight
for ones to see.
It holds fast
to will and way
as it lives on
from night to day.

Without Within

Beside behind
without within
a time displays
a now and then.
Without within
a special place
the here and now
is face to face.
Within the time
without a cause
within a minute
takes a pause.
The things we see
and things we do
without within
will give a view.
Some as signs,
and some as ways
without within
the better days.
Time’s a pattern
marked with minds
without within
remembered times.

Believing Lies

When in a prayer
don’t try to lie
for Lord God knows
what’s wet or dry.
Don’t let yourself
to fall away
believing lies
ones do and say.
The truth is God
through every word
that shows the way
beyond absurd.
See the meanings
in your life
and don’t just fill
it full of strife.
Believing lies
what Satan’s says
will lose your life
for future days.

A Challenge Of Time

Snow filled memories
will come unto be,
the scenes in dreams,
our history.
A challenge of time
becomes a place,
a scene of winter
from autumns embrace.
Those sweet blessings
of Christmastime
become the glimpse
of hope to find.
Winter’s occurrence
as such a sight,
a challenge of time,
a winters night.
Those Christmas songs
we so endear,
that wonderful time
with Christmas cheer.
They all become
a glimmering view,
a challenge of time
to soon come true.
The minutes pass
as days go by,
while songs of joy
live deep inside.
That Christmas snow
we wish to see,
a challenge of time
will come to be.
Decembers stage
will come on cue
to welcome Christmas
soon to view.
The seasonal scene
will then so fine
defeat the essence,
a challenge of time.

A View Of White

The age of time
becomes a scene,
a view of white
that once was green.
Trees so tall
with branches of snow
display a view
seen high and low.
With but a moment
this scene will become
a view of white
in the shining sun.
A field in-between
is a story to tell,
a view of white
where snow has fell.
It seems as magic
this wintery while,
a view of white
that makes me smile.
It’s but a moment
a Christmastime scene,
a view of white
a wonderful dream.
My camera’s clicking
a picture or two,
this scene of white,
a magical view.
It is a blessing
a glorious sight,
this day and age
a view of white.

Healing Mind

As the sunshine
leaves the sky
it can be
a clouds reply.
A healing sight
for ones to see,
the sun so bright
and given free.
Maybe a wave
of oceans time
can become
a sight to find.
A healing scene
of gentle waves
can become
some better days.
Then some peace
of God’s design
can expose
the healing mind.

Parting Waters

Through the waters
boats will go
parting waters
how they flow.
Often journey’s
parting waters,
bumpy ride.
Just like life
with footsteps made,
parting waters,
many wade.
A scene’s exposed
that we desired,
parting waters
time’s acquired.
Lessons displayed
some to sink,
parting waters
how we think.
Yet a moment
can display
parting waters
better day..
Finding prayerful
how we float,
parting waters
better boat.

The Waves Of Time

Fishing in
the waves of time
a fisherman
is found to find
a baited hook
to catch a fish
the waves of time
a wanted wish.
Like a story
word for word
the waves of time
are seen and heard.
Waters rushing
in with phase
around the man
the distant days.
This is time
that comes to be
a fisherman
within the sea
The waves of time
are evermore
found within
the days seashore.
The fisherman
he wades on in
the waves of time
to then begin.
With each cast
he seeks a sign
to catch a fish,
the waves of time.

Autumn Rain

The season finds
the leaves of color
changing face
for seasons other.
With autumn rain
the leaves wash down
to find their place
upon the ground.
The moments change
from day to night
with autumn rain
to help the sight.
A moments path
is found upon
with autumn rain
as leaves are gone.
The scenes details
are surely found
leaves of colors
on the ground.

Rustic Memories

On one summers day
I drove passed a place
with an old rustic style
that my heart did embrace.
It wasn’t real weathered,
but it held fast to age
those old rustic memories
on an old rustic stage.
I took out my camera
and began with a smile
snapping up pictures
of an old rustic while.
We’ve many seen places
that time brought us to,
those old rustic memories
of an old timely view.
You might not of noticed
a real old rustic barn
near an old rustic house
with an old rustic charm,
but the places exist
just as oceans and seas
those places in time
those rustic memories.

for Nov 5,  2016

A simple person
with a mere thought about life
might not be simple.

Many challenges
are of our own daily choices
that we chose to do.

A path in the road
might have many directions
that you cannot see.

When chasing a dream
you might stumble and fall down,
because it’s a dream.

Facts are within us
that we often will ignore
and continue on.

Living for today
will sometimes be destructive,
as the future dies.

Various colors
that we weave into our lives
will change our feelings.

Allowing others
to control your emotions
gives them great power.

The sights that we see
can often become icons
in our daily lives.

Wielding a weapon
can become anothers tool
to use against you.

Morbid emotions
can become as kryptonite
detouring others.

Without a second
a minute has not a chance
to become a day.

Throughout our lives
we will see many flowers
that bloom in springtime.

Using credit cards
can bury you in deep debt
if you are careless.

Tomorrows in time
can become as yesterdays
found in reflections.

A large breath of wind
is a kite flyers best friend
that can become bad.

Evidence of life
is a pattern many seek
while views might be wrong.

A liars heartbeat
only speaks true a moment
that they are caught in.

Inside a doorway
holds chances and some choices
that become as lives.

Within a seedling
there is a life giving force
that time will release.

Blue skies above us
display characteristics
of our perception.

Clouds found together
can become a stormy day
or a photograph.

Our Newest book
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures
and if you are not in the USA
you can buy it here at Amazon
My wife Judy’s Poetry books 🙂
Ben Geurts Drawing Art site
and Old Fashioned Christmas site
My Animal’s Greetings site below
One of my friends sites below
and once again the poetry contest at
Me on YouTube
Your frosty friend Bill 🙂


Hello my friends

It’s been a bit rainy the last few days,  but
not too cold.  At least not as cold as it could
be at this time of year.  Our landlord has of
yet to finish with our mobile home addition
and that doesn’t surprise me,  but he better
get it done before the snows start heavily
falling,  because we will be unable to get out
of our back door due to snow and ice with no
way to plow back there.  I talked to him the
other day and he promised he would get it
done.  I’m in prayer for that.  Anyways,  on
with the journal.  This passed week Judy
and I have gotten our new book published
and it will be out in stores sometime next
month. It’s titled Pearce’s Poetry Pictures.
We should be getting the proof copy some
time this week.  We are ecstatically waiting
to see it LOL.  It will have over 150 poetry
pictures.  Over a 120 of them will be mine
and the rest will be Judy’s  I hope and pray
that it sells.  It would sure help out with our
budget around here 🙂  Next topic.  Judy’s
been doing more and more painting and she’s
getting better every time.  Yep,  she’s turned
into quite the artist and we have combined
our talents together to make picture poems.
Of course I use a lot of the pictures that we
have taken with our cameras,  but ever so
often I will use one of her paintings or she
will use one to make a picture poem.  Yep,
we do stay busy.  I don’t believe I will put all
of the poems I wrote this week in the journal,
being I wrote 30 poems and 19 of them are
picture poems.  LOL it seems that since I
have begun doing picture poetry,  I have
started writing more hehehe.  OK  so next
topic.  We went to Walmart last week and
as usual I took pictures there and to,  but
with the weather as it has been,  most of
the pictures were blurry due to the lack of
sunlight.  It’s 42 F degrees right now with a
high of 47.  That’s not too awful cold hehehe.
Judy is over at her brother’s house again
today to try and finish up getting it ready for
him to come home from the nursing home.
I worry about him coming home to be by
himself.   I’ve got a feeling he will be calling
us quite a bit wanting help.  The family has
been busy getting the house wheel chair
accessible.  They had to knock out a few
walls and widen doorways throughout the
house.  The house is very small,  so not
many people can help.  LOL obviously a
short person built it being that the ceiling
is just about 6 inches from my head LOL.
Ricky has been calling almost every day
checking on the progress.  He’s coming
home this coming Friday.  Keep him in your
prayers.  His health is very bad.  VERY
BAD.  Life is just a moment that none of
us has a clue to the exact point and time
that we will leave these fleshly bodies to
be joined with our perfect bodies as our
spirit moves on.  Anyways,  next topic 🙂
As I’m fairly sure you may have guessed
that it’s just me and the boys again today.
LOL Benny and Rocky are lying down in
their doggie beds right beside me.  Yep,
they’ve sort of gotten used to it.  Rocky
has latched on to me and he never leaves
my side.  Benny does too,  but not quite
as much.  LOL when we go to bed,  Rocky
will lie down in the floor right beside me
for a bit before heading to the other side
of the bed where both of their doggie beds
are.  I guess it could be due to the fact
I am with them more of the time and I’m
the one that plays with them most.  Judy
plays with them,  but not near as much
as I do.  Both Benny and Rocky love to
lie in my lap.  If I’m holding 1,  the other
is right beside me looking up at me in his
little way of saying my turn.  LOL,  they
are so silly.  They love Judy and spend
a lot of time under her feet as well.  We
love our boys.  I fixed Judy and I some
breakfast before she headed out to her
brothers house.  Some scrambled eggs,
toast and sausage.  I’ve gotta take care
of my honey 🙂  We both gave to boys
a couple of sausage links 🙂  The Pearce’s
Place is still kicking in the wind hehehe.
We still spend a lot of time watching all of
our favorite TV programs together.  It
seems like every time we get interested
in a program,  they have a season finale.
LOL go figure.  No matter,  we seem to
always find another program that we like
that fills the spot for a brief.  LOL don’t
we live exciting lives!  OH well,  we get
by.  It’s great that neither of us comes
from a money hungry family and we’re
used to living on very little.  Of course
I’m sure that we have more than many,
as there is always someone that is in
worse shape than you.  You might not
know of them,  but trust me,  they are
there.  Be thankful for what you have,
because there are others out there that
would call you rich.  You might not have
millions,  but what you have might be more
than another has ever fathomed.  Thank
God for the things that you have and all
that you are able to do.  Life is shorter
than you may think.  You could be the
picture of health one day and then out
of the blue,  have an accident and your
health or life is taken away.  Be grateful
for the struggles that you endured,  for
they were tools to make you stronger.
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 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.  I think I found
a decent title about a third of the way
back in my rambling LOL.  Now let’s
see what if anything at all I can do with
it.  Here goes 🙂

Kicking In The Wind

Storms come a brewing
many times and agin
and often it’s just like
kicking in the wind.
We fight to keep ahead
as storms come rushing through
kicking in the wind
with a breath turned to blue.
Blessings of a moment
might be all that you need
to help you in a turnstile
to plant a healthy seed.
Kicking in the wind
is a pattern many find
when lessons come as turmoil
weighing heavy on their mind.
Some scenes discovered
might have a better end
that now is just a problem,
kicking in the wind.

There ya go!  LOL I hope you enjoyed the
poem and understood it.  Also I hope that I
didn’t bore you too much with my rambling.
Judy should be home soon.  I know the boys
are anxious for her to come home.  Both of
them are lying on the end of our bed facing
the door waiting for her.  Hehehe,  they are
adorable.  They’ll go ballistic when she gets
home LOL.  Rocky starts spinning in circles
when he gets excited.  I swear sometime he’s
going to make himself sick doing that LOL.
Judy just walked in and as I predicted,  the
boys went ballistic hehehe.  So,  it looks like
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.  I guess you
already know that I wrote a ton of poetry
pictures LOL,  although I think I will only
post the 10 none picture poems.  I think
30 poems is a bit much to be posting in my
journal,  hehehe don’t you think.  Anyways
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
Once again,  our Pearce’s Poetry Pictures
will be for sell next month and I will put
a link to the website where you can buy
it then.  So now I believe it’s time for me
to begin my search for that confounded
off switch that is so great at hiding LOL,
NOT,  but before I do that I must wish
you a most wonderful weekend or what
that is left of it and a truly blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Ok,  so where are ya hiding
or more to the point,  trying to hide you
little whippersnapper.  Where can that
off switch possibly be hiding.  Hmm that
would happen to be it that I see behind
my Mountain Dew can,  now could it be?
LOL,  For crying out loud,  you’ve had
all week long to look for a hiding spot
and you hide behind the 1 thing that I am
drinking out of.  Try harder next week.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

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

The Dancer

She moved like liquid water
as she flowed across the stage.
Her steps were not so youthful,
but she shown the greatest age.
She wore a dress of white
as she danced into my heart.
I saw her in this magical time
a wonderful work of art.
Her daughter was getting married
on this wonderful day and time
while the moment was well written
as a fabulous design
and then after the wedding
we danced with joyful glee
as we held each other tightly
and danced in one agree.
The times were found as magic
as the dancer held me tight
and we danced acoss the stage
as true love was in sight.
Her daughter was also dancing
with her wonderful married man
while the dancer held me closely
as we danced then hand to hand.

A Stormy Life

A day with rain
and clouds of gray,
a stormy life
will seem dismay.
Yet the rains
that pour on down
might have hope
that can be found.
A stormy life
of times regards
might just be
a deck of cards.
The dealer being
a day with strife
a stormy day,
a stormy life.
The episodes
of each we see
might be lessons
for you and me.
All those moments
times details,
a stormy life
might fill its sails.
Then the ship
of thereunto
might display
a better view.
A stormy life
will surely show
a time with peace
and a big rainbow.

A Little Faith

The smallest seed
of faith and time
can become
the best design.
For with Jesus
and His ways
there will be
some better days.
A little faith
throughout your life
can become
much less of strife.
A scene exposed
you did not like
can become
a healthy hike.
A mountain stream
of love and care,
a little faith
can fill a prayer.

The Christmas Star

That special scene
that many see
up on top
of the Christmas tree.
The Christmas star
is such a sight
as it glistens
day and night.
With the lights
red,  green and blue
the Christmas star
displays its hue.
Often shining
brightly so
maybe with some
store bought snow.
The Christmas star
brings into light
The Saviors birth
that wondrous sight.
The seasons glory
wondrous view
of Jesus Christ
for me and you.

Giving Thanks

Troubles will often
become plain to see,
but God can do wonders
with you and with me.
Each trial we encounter
is a tool to be seen
as we walk through the ages
to find what they mean.
Thankful is a moment
that we find in our heart
the end of our troubles
and goodness to start.
No matter the pathways,
no matter the miles,
I’m thankful for seconds
that turn into smiles.
Even though sadness
is often the view,
I’m giving thanks now
for what God will do.
For God is my rock
and my firm solid ground
that gives to me great strength
when trouble comes around.
Yes I’m giving thanks
for His unending ways
that helps me through sadness
to find better days.

Pastimes Of Peace

Now is a second
a minute is gained.
then hours gather
for more time attained.
The pastimes of peace
of a moments desire
can be a thing
or a place you acquire.
Peace is a blessing
that many let go
and find only anger
to daily bestow.
The seasons of life
in a whirlwind of days
might become trouble
of a daily amaze.
Yet within Jesus
your anger can cease
with moments of prayerful
pastimes of peace.

Shadows essence
day and night
shows the chances
wrong and right.
Seeming rightful
might not be
a given chance
for you or me.
Often doorways
open wide
just to tempt
your life inside.
Yet some doorways
hold the path
away from now
your aftermath.
Life is questions,
answers too
that by chance
what’s right to do.
Don’t let liars
to romance
and fill you with
an empty chance.
Look beyond then
see what’s right
found inside
God’s Holy Light.

That Faithful Night

A snowy night
with Christmas dreams,
sugar plum fairies
and wondrous scenes
is such a time
that kids remember
amidst December.
That faithful night
on Christmas Eve
a child will seek
to just believe.
The sight of Santa’s
suit of red,
they dream of him
at night in bed.
That faithful night
that comes to be,
a child might try
to look and see.
Yet old Santa
will come and go
that faithful night
through winters snow.
With Rudolf’s nose
that shines real bright,
he guides old Santa
that faithful night.

The Light Of God

As each day passes
our lives are counted
minutes that prospered,
moments surmounted.
The light of God
is a guide through life
to help us each one
find a way from strife.
The past is remembered,
but not held to be
the way that we are
and the way that we see.
The light of God
is a doorway through time
that glistens His beauty
so wondrous Divine.
Our blessings uncountable
are pages to turn
as the light of God
shows what to discern.

Beginnings End

Without beginnings
there is no end
for things must start
to then transcend.
The things we think
and things we do
beginnings end
is thereunto.
Within our sight
we might not see
beginnings end
of history,
but as time goes
it shows so true
beginnings end
within our view.
So then as time
is found in sync
beginnings end
has common link.
Found as moments
around the bend
lessons gather
beginnings end.

Tomorrow’s a day
that will soon become our past
as life passes by.

Judging by color
or ethnic of another
can lose some good friends.

Challenges on life
come with surprises of time
that we might not see.

Life is emotions
found within our minds journeys
as mountains and hills.

Reality comes
as the patterns we have tried
turn out good or bad.

Life within a breath
is breathed in with emotion
that many can’t see.

A fast boat through life
might sink in the deepest part
due to a rogue wave.

Now is a moment
that ones will worry about
no matter how small.

A life’s destruction
might be a mere mystery
to those that are blind.

A turbines story
becomes a life of desire
that’s spinning around.

A persons money
often becomes who they are
and it’s often false.

Digging a deep hole
for the burial of lies
might come up real short.

Disdained decisions
can become nightmares to see
as your choice was wrong.

Falling from the sky,
a raindrop has not a choice
of where it will land.

Forces of nature
can become our choice makers
of where we’re to live.

The present time seen
might not show all that there is
and flourish regret.

Various changes
leave various emotions
of how we react.

The hands of a clock
display many seconds found
of which we worry.

The vitals of truth
needs the emotional heartbeat
of conscience and love.

Our troublesome days
are often not the worst days,
but the most noticed.

A thriving liar
will continue down that path
even when they’re caught.

The trees standing tall
can sometimes smother the young
preventing their growth.

Hello my friends

Well,  this is my second attempt to write my
journal.  The darned electricity got knocked
out just long enough to make my PC crash,
which made me have to start again and I was
down to the part of beginning to look for a
title for the new poem.  It’s taken me a bit to
calm down to be able to give it another try,
so here goes.  I’m kind of blank though as it
seems with the power outage it also took my
thoughts.  I guess I should of been saving
the journal as I wrote knowing that we had
already had one power outage real early this
morning.  I guess I didn’t think there would
be such a quick repeat performance.  So,
OK where should I begin?  Well I guess I
will begin at the beginning LOL.  This passed
week has been not too awful bad.  Weather
wise,  it has been pretty fair.  Our landlord
though is making our lives a bit rougher as
he has still of yet to of finished the add on
to the front of our mobile home and we are
having to use the back door which is located
in our bedroom.  The steps back there are
in worse shape than the ones in the front
were and plus,  there is no porch light and
no way to drive back there because we can’t
drive over the sewer lines.  So we’ve gotta
park in front on the other side of the sewer
lines and walk to the back/bedroom door.
It’s really getting old and the fact that the
snowy season is not far from beginning its
onslaught and there is no way we will be
able to get out of our back door  because
they cannot plow back there.  I’ve got a
small snow blower,  but there is no way
I will be able to do that back there.  The
snow blower is more for concrete drives.
The first time it hits a rock or something,
it’s done for.  And it only does 12 inches
wide and no more than 6 inches deep,  so
you see why I’m worried.  I talked to him
the other day and he said he would get it
all fixed as soon as he can,  so we shall see.
LOL enough with my bickering.  Next topic.
Judy’s been doing a megaton of painting.
OK,  maybe not a megaton,  but she has
done a whole bunch.  She’s getting better
with every stroke of the paintbrush.  She
has even begun doing picture poetry like
me.  Though most of hers is done using
her paintings.  She has done a few using
pictures we’ve taken though.  When she
becomes a famous artist,  I reckon she’ll
divorce me and find her a better man 🙂
Nah,  she might hang onto me because
she’s gotten used to me hehehe.  We are
still planning on doing a book of picture
poems combined with both of our work.
Hopefully we will have it done by next
month and ready for Christmas.  We’re
gonna try.  Anyways,  next topic.  I took
the boys out for a field trip Thursday
while Judy took a nap.  As normal they
had a blast.  My feet and legs though,
did not LOL.  I brought my camera as
always and took a few pictures of them
while they ran hither and thither hehehe.
There were still a few fall colored leaves
on the trees  but I am guessing that now
after all of these winds rushing through,
the leaves are in the next county hehehe.
This time,  I am saving after every other
line so if the electricity does get bumped,
I won’t lose what all I’ve written,  because
I don’t believe I have it in me to start from
scratch again LOL.  The winds have been
blowing 25 to 35 MPH with 40 to 45 MPH
gust and it’s supposed to continue into the
night.  I’m sure the reason for the power
outages is because tree limbs somewhere
keep hitting the power lines.  You would
think that the city would send a crew to
look for such tree limbs and trim them away
from the power lines  but NO.  They only
send a crew when there is a power outage.
There are crews that businesses hire that
go around trimming the limbs away from
power lines,  but not the city,  or at least
it doesn’t look like it LOL.  Oh well,  it’s
nothing I have control over.  I took a trip
outside with my camera a little while ago
to see if our lighthouse was still out there
or if it had blown off into the next county.
Surprise,  that little homemade lighthouse
is exactly where we put it and it’s light is
still shining bright.  I figured if anything
would of blown it away it would of been
the winds from early this morning LOL.
So I guess I did a pretty good job in its
construction 🙂  Judy put the pumpkin that
she did last Saturday Oct 15 out there
near the lighthouse and a lot of the paint
has washed and blown off  but otherwise
it still looks pretty good.  I am so amazed
at her creativity.  I wish I was half that
creative.  All I’m able to do is put a few
words together and construct a sentence
or two.  LOL most times the sentences
make no sense.  Hehehe oh well,  it is
what it is.  If we all had the very same
gifts,  then it would all become senseless.
We each have our special gifts,  large
and small,  but each gift with it’s own
importance which large or small do not
pertain.  LOL time for a weather report.
It’s 38 F degrees and cloudy as the wind
just keeps on blowing.  Back to you Bill.
Hehehe a bit a silliness snuck in.  I think
we all need some silliness in our lives to
keep from becoming stones of sadness
as bitterness rushes over our lives.  So
be silly from time to time,  but don’t let
it become overdone.  Just use silliness
to lighten up a darkened moment that
you are filled with bereavement.  Life
is a time frame that moves from flesh
to spirit,  yet still exist in one.  Look
for the joy that you had in a loved ones
and even remember the silly times for
they’ll help you to find joy.  Remember
it’s not over when the body dies.  It is
just the beginning.  OK so I reckon it’s
time for me once again LOL and I say
once again with earnest because this
is the point that the electricity went out
before.  So save it I have been doing
this time 🙂  Anyways,  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 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
believe I found a decent title near the
halfway mark of my rambling.  Now to
see if I can do anything with it hehehe.
Here goes…..

Hither and Thither

Time is a painting
scenery found
hither and thither
all there around.
Now marks the moments
a secondhand past
as but a memory
going too fast.
Hither and thither
is now and agin
time frames enacted
where we have been.
A rose petal romance
is found in a place
hither and thither
filled with God’s grace.
Just but a minute
can become such a time
hither and thither
found on the mind.
Heartfelt emotions
equip ones with love
hither and thither
from God above.
A sequence of scenes
of our yesteryear
hither and thither
might not be so clear.
Yet but a moment
hither and thither
can become blessings
never to wither.
Flesh becomes spirit
as time goes its way
hither and thither
day after day
For with ones praying
dusk unto dawn
hither and thither
is life never gone.

OK  there ya go.  I finally managed to get
this written.  LOL I have been saving every
other line,  just in case the dear power goes
out again.  I hope you enjoyed my rambling
and maybe even the poem.  I wasn’t sure I
was going to be able to start over and do it
again from scratch  but I did it 🙂  Hmm so
I wonder,  is there anything else to tell you?
Oh yea our grandson Christian came Friday
and spent the night and Saturday with us 🙂
We always enjoy having him visit with us.
We’d love it if the other grand kids could
come,  but that’s life.  They are either busy
or live too far away.  In any case,  we are
thrilled that Christian still wants to spend
some time with Grandma and Grandpa 🙂
Kids grow up so quickly and their priorities
change.  I know mine did and I wish often
that they had not,  because I lost so much
from that connection.  Do your best to not
lose that connection with your family.  It
is one that is not just of blood  but of ones
considered family.  So now I believe it’s
time for me to be telling you what I tell
you almost every week and that is I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers 10
more poems with an extra 3 and 1 shorty.
One of the poems is a Christmas poem.
So that ups the count to 13 and a half 🙂
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
So now I guess it’s time for me to begin
my search for that terrible at hiding off
switch,  but not before I wish you all
a most wonderful week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Alrighty
then,  so where is that off switch trying
to hide this week?  LOL ya thought you
wouldn’t have to try to hide this time
due to the power outtages didn’t ya LOL.
I guess hiding behind my nose spray
was the quickest place you had to run
when you figured out that I was going
to get this thing done huh LOL.  Well,
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

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

A Winter Dream

Times of slumber
find that place
a winter dream
that you can taste.
A simple time
that brings you peace
a winter dream
with sweet release.
Christmas scenes
with lights so bright
that they shine
a peaceful night.
A winter dream
of long ago
building snowmen
in the snow.
A gentle thought
that comes alive
a winter dream
we recognize.
The love and joy
finds ways to be
a winter dream
I wish to see.

Falling Stars

Nighttime finds scenery
Venus and Mars
with twinkling essence
and a few falling stars.
On through the night sky
the scenes all behold
times filled with beauty
that surely unfold.
Falling stars majesty
streaks through the night
painting a picture
of a bright shining light.
A page of a book
with a wonderful view,
a nights falling stars
are thoughts to construe.
Thinking of the places
a falling star’s been
and wondering whether
it’s caught in the wind.
Nighttime relinquishes
airborne guitars
with but a strum of
the nights falling stars.

Neither Either

Now but only,
then but why
neither either
seems to fly
What’s remembered
might not be
neither either
you or me.
Sometimes past
and present times
is but only
rhythms rhymes.
Neither either
finds a way
that is best
to be today.
Lose the factoid
now perceives
it might be
just falling leaves.
Neither either
now and then
is rock written
out and in.
For the moments
that prevail
might be lessons
in detail.
Neither either
might be there,
but a speed bump
with a prayer.

An Autumn Road

An autumn drive
through scenery
becomes a stage
through history.
An autumn road
with colored leaves
seems as dreams
within the trees.
Each minute found
as time goes by
an autumn road
has leaves that fly.
Some as yellow,
orange and brown
find their place
upon the ground.
Yet the pathway
time’s bestowed
still shows beauty
an autumn road.

An Autumn Sky

Leaves with colors,
birds that fly
make the stage
an autumn sky.
Time with minutes
finds a place
for eyes to see.
An autumn sky
with winds that blow
comes before
the winters snow.
Relinquished leaves
are soon to fall
from the trees
so short and tall.
An autumn sky
becomes a view
found within
a dream come true.

Falls Reflections

The waters shimmer,
the waters shine
falls reflections
that I find.
Seasons moments
come in view
on the waters
oh so blue.
Falls reflections
find a way
to become
the best display.
The waters glimmer
orange and red
with some yellow
leaves have shed.
In the moment
time stands still
falls reflections
shines with zeal.
Teams of colors
come in sight
falls reflections
oh so bright.

The Tides Will Turn

A beaches scorn
of many souls
will find the times
for future goals.
The tides will turn
with changing phase
unto the night
and dawning days.
With every step
a person makes
upon a beach
their life partakes.
Soon is found
a moments past,
the tides will turn
with shadows cast.
Then recordings
of each path
will become
a moments past.
Many footprints
times discern
are washed away
the tides will turn.

A Distant Time

A season remembered,
a sight you did see
becomes such a blessing
in your history.
A distant time painted
with thoughts full of ink
becomes as a mirror
of how that you think.
A shore upon a beach
with moments of old
becomes a distant time
with sights to behold.
Those distant memories
that just passed you by
will one day awaken
as heartbeats apply.
A distant time photograph
comes into view
becoming as memoirs
an ocean of blue.
A walk on the beach
of a moment so mild
becomes a distant time
with you and your child.
Maybe just a moment
and maybe not a beach,
but a moment remembered
will come into reach.
Through a mere photograph
a time will rewind
to that of an echo
of a so distant time.

A Summer’s Day

Tracking back
through mind and more
I find the times
that I adore.
A summer’s day
with beach side view
I watched the days
of time come true.
A summer’s day
with sweet release
is found beside
the summer’s seas.
Ones found fishing
seeking their goal
while they’re dreaming
of life to unfold.
The stage is set
in a magical way
what I remember
of a summer’s day.

Another Storm

Turmoil’s beginnings
are often a key,
another storm
to help us see.
A storm of sadness
might involve
futures blessings
to resolve.
Another storm
within design
might have pages
you’re to sign.
God gives angels
places found
to be strength
when you fall down.
Don’t let sadness
always form,
for some answers
will be born.
Another storm
of timeless view
might just be
the best for you.

Echoes Of Life

The wings of the living
spread widely to fly
as that of an eagle
while the minutes fly by.
Then as a memoir
our time might repeat
a moment remembered
we did not defeat.
Our echoes of life
are like a photograph,
moments remembered,
events from our past.
Scenes thought forgotten
of bridges we burned,
the echoes show minutes
we thought we had learned.
The echoes of life
become teachers of time,
often to enlighten
our dim-witted mind.

Through The Trees

A simple scene
of thereunto
can become
a wondrous view.
A wooded path,
a timeless door,
through the trees
ones can explore.
Minutes prosper
that of ages
through the trees
a book of pages.
A turning point
of slight degrees
might show well
through the trees.
Life’s mysterious
as time’s done
finding future
yet begun.
Through the trees
we might get lost
with our footsteps
such a cost.
So as pathways
through the trees
show their moments
as the seas,
look for truthful
ways to turn
that have right ways
to discern.

A House So Old

Years leave the threshold
of a house so old
dank with the essence of
feeling so cold.
A home without a owner
is just but a house
filled with only fractions,
a home for a mouse.
Time becomes its enemy
as walls come crashing in
while a house so old
seeks for life to begin agin.
Its structure is a living thing
like a human entity
as it stands watching time
just like you and like me.
We’re all a house at heart
with a lifetime to unfold
that need Lord God above
to entwine our house of old.
Yet if we let our lives
to be found without His key,
we’ll become a house so old
that our reflections only see.

Necessity And Need

Change is needed less from a dollar bill
and more from the way ones think.
A simple spark from necessity and need
can make our problems shrink.

Oct 20,  2016


for Oct 20,  2016

Now is a moment
that will soon become our past
so take care of now.

Mornings bring blessings
as chances of which they give
from God’s own design.

Crashing through doorways
and not looking in before,
could end in trouble.

Lost in translation,
many focus on their own thoughts
and don’t understand.

Twisted bits of time
find their ways into a dream
becoming nightmares.

Without first thinking
an action can become death
as life seeks recourse.

Preparing for morning
needs yesterday put aside
to move forward.

The shout of winter
is a voice in a snowstorm
and cold winds that blow.

The pages of a book
only put forth their journey
when they become read.

As a morning mist
the life of the day begins
to soon become clear.

A map of today
becomes many lines to see
as it is written.

Knowing the answers
does not mean that they are all,
for there might be more.

Inside a moment
some blades of grass come alive
to help cover time.

Painted memories
can become more than they were
filled full of colors.

A challenge is good
only when it’s not stupid,
for then it’s childish.

Minds found connected
might think the very same thoughts,
but different ways.

Mindless arguing
leaves doors opened for despair
that might end alone.

Many corridors
bring forth troublesome values
for empty people.

Autumn leaves falling
are a grounds keepers nightmare
that only he knows.

Losing a battle
does not mean that you are weak,
if you gave your all.

A hillside of snow
is a painting made by God
but many don’t see.

The things that you’ve done
are never hidden from God,
for His Son sees all.

They can also be found at Amazon

Your frosty friend Bill 🙂


Hello my friends

Well we’ve survived yet another week.  Our add on
partition is still needing much work.  Our landlord’s
got it moved to the house and blocked up and all, but
he has yet to of sealed it or built or brought us some
steps so that we can get in and out of it.  All I can say
is he better get on the ball,  because the usage of
our back steps is limited and when winter gets here
we can no longer use them due to snow.  He cannot
plow back there because of the sewer lines.  Anyway,
we’re going to stay on him to get it finished.  He’s
got a leak in the ceiling of it that also needs to be
repaired also and then the wiring of the lights and
all.  So I ask you most earnestly,  please pray for
these matters to get taken care of correctly and
quickly.  OK,  so enough of my bickers hehehe 🙂
Onto another topic.  The weather is getting a bit
more wintery as each day passes.  Tuesday Judy
and I went to Walmart and I took a few more fall
pictures there and to LOL.  The leaves have begun
falling from the trees leaving many empty branches.
Right now it’s 54 F degrees and raining.  Judy and
I just got back from her daughters house a little
while ago.  They had a Halloween chilly cook off 🙂
I cannot eat chilly due to health issues so I made
up a big batch of my non spicy goulash.  Without
a colon and colostomy bag I can’t handle hot foods.
What goes in hot,  comes out hot LOL.  So,  the
evening went well.  Judy and I took a lot of pictures
of everybody there.  It was all indoors due to the
fact of the rain.  We had to leave the boys at home.
They were OK.  We put them in their crates which
they both tend to spend a lot of time in on their
own LOL.  They treat them like doghouses LOL,
so a couple of hours was no bother.  When we have
to leave them at home,  all we do is say sorry
you can’t go,   get in your crate and they both go
and get in their individual crate and sit down 🙂
We love our boys,  but there are days that we
must leave them home for their own safety.  That’s
life!  Well,  what else has gone on around the
Pearce’s Place?  Hmm,  well Judy is still doing
paintings and I FINALLY finished mine.  It’s
titled the Dog Star which by another name is
Sirius which is at the heel of the Hunter if you
know anything about astrology LOL.  Sirius is
supposed to be the brightest star in the Earth’s
night sky.  I don’t know how true that is being
viewed from different locations though.  So,
you’ve had a little astrology lesson now LOL.
Not that it will do you any good hehehe.  So,
what else is going on around this place?  Well,
as I said Judy is painting,  but it seems that
we have become a sort of team as she paints
pictures and I write poems to go with them.
Not all of them mind you,  being I do have my
limits ya know hehehe.  Although since I’ve
begun doing more and more picture poems,
it seems I have been writing more and more
poems each week 🙂  We are enjoying doing
this together.  In time we’re going to make a
book of the picture poems and hopefully sell
a few copies.  That would be nice if that dream
would come true.  That’s our plans for next
month.  So,  OK next topic.  The boys are
now lying in the floor between Judy and me
in their doggy beds.  Rocky is snoring and
he sounds almost identical to how Milo used
to snore 🙂  If I didn’t know better,  which I
don’t 🙂  I’d think the spirit Milo is in Rocky.
I doesn’t matter,  they are now and they’ll
always be our boys.  Their spirits are always
welcomed in our home.  It seems that the
rain has ceased or at least for the moment 🙂
Yes,  it looks like God is still watching over
us as we face our daily struggles.  We’ve
often got problems that at the moment seem
the greatest we have ever had,  but then on
a bit a reminiscing remember a time and
place that we had it much worse and God
pulled us through.  For even the worst of
times are tools to help our tomorrows.  So,
it seems that I have come to that point in
my rambling that I need to cease and take
a little trip back through all that I have
written to see if I can find a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title of today’s
brand new poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that
place of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe I
may of found a decent title near the center
of my rambling hehehe.  Now to see if I can
do anything with it.  Here goes.

The Brightest Star

The ones we see
in daily view
might not display
what’s really true.
The brightest star
might be so dim
as you focus
not on them.
Yet a moment
might be seen
what was dim
might now agleam.
The brightest star
and real true friend
will be there
till the very end.
For the others
you thought true
might become as
hard to view.

There ya go.  I hope you enjoyed my rambling
and also poem.  Hopefully you understood and
enjoyed the poem as well LOL.  Benny just got
up and strolled out of here and I’m guessing is
now lying on his favorite recliner in the living
room.  I got a late start on my writing due to the
Halloween chilly cook off LOL.  There wasn’t
anybody dressed in Halloween attire,  so I’m
glad I didn’t wear my Halloween mask LOL 🙂
So,  that’s about all I’ve got.  I guess it’s now
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 an added 7 which ups the total to 17 and
once again I wrote 22 haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.  Now,  I believe
it’s time for me to begin my search for that
off switch that’s terrible at hide and seek LOL,
but not before I wish you a most wonderful
and blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now where can that silly
off switch be hiding or at least not standing
right in front of me?  Well,  I’ll be a monkeys
uncle,  He found a decent hiding spot for
once,  but the pitfall in the choosing of this
spot is the fact that I need to change out the
batteries in my camera and he’s hiding right
behind them LOL.  Better luck next week 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+7 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂


This place of perception,
this place that I live
is just but a moment
that minutes will give.
Home is a blessing,
home is a place
found within sections
of God’s Holy Grace.
Time’s a benefactor
presenting a chance
found within moments
of life’s song and dance.
Home can be a time
with your hat on the wall
hung but just a moment
that you might recall.
Scenes within ages
might find you all alone,
but it might be needed
for then as your home.

Paved With Memories

A horse and buggy
finds place in time
paved with memories
a scenic design.
Life moves forward
with clicking of hooves
paved with memories
leaves some grooves.
Cars might be rolling
quickly on by
as horse and buggy
gives a faint sigh.
Paved with memories
might then be beheld
as a moments expression
that minutes are meld.
Scenes come alive then
timeless to see
a horse in buggy
from our history.

A Road To Town

A scene so white
as wheels roll on
a road to town
has whitish tone.
Snow upon it
scenes so white
a road to town
is day and night.
Time envelops
scenes we see
a road to town
of history.
Winters windows
displayed true
a road to town
with snow to view.
With the patterns
time’s displayed
a road to town
is snowy paved.
As our wheels roll
down the road
a winter scene
is then bestowed.

Colors Of Fall

Life is a journal
written in hues
colors of fall
and wonderful views.
Blended as paint
in an ocean of time,
colors of fall

Seeming as magic

in autumns painting
that season transcends.
When viewing pictures
the times will recall

colors of fall.

Abstract Foliage

Birds In The Mist

A theme of mist
and autumn scene
is found within
the wildest dream.
Some birds in flight
in mist of haze
fly beyond
the moments gaze.
Colors shimmer
within the sight
as the birds
are in mid flight.
Birds in the mist
are then beyond
as they’re seen
above a pond.
As they flutter
to coexist
within the scene
birds in the mist.

Without Right Now

The times that pass
that we regret
might be the times
with best asset.
Without right now
we might not see
what tomorrow’s
might just be.
Beyond our thoughts
of then and there
without right now
cannot compare.
The many times
that now was framed
might of given
good attained.
The tomorrows
that times endow
have no lessons
without right now.

Belittled Minds

Some found so different
might not see as you
with ways that they’re going
and things that they do.
Life is a stew pot
filled with our thoughts
often so different
that many get lost.
Some will belittle
the difference they see
of minds of another
that’s not you or me.
Yet on the backside
of our mental phase
belittled minds thought of
might know better ways.
Then as a turning point
life finds designs
true lessons to learn from
those belittled minds.

The Ghost Of Halloween

This ghost named Boo
that tries to scare
only does it
because of a dare.
He watches the moon
come out at night
and with a pumpkin
seeks to fright.
The ghost of Halloween
just floats around
here and there
and all through town.
Boo tries to scare
everyone he’s seen,
because he is the ghost
of Halloween.

A Simple Change

Points in time
to things we’ve done
a simple change
can be begun.
Maybe a thought
or action made
can become changed
a moment prayed.
A simple change
in where you go
and things you do
will help you grow.
Yet the changes
need to be
what’s within,
not just to see.
Seek for better
styles of ways
and let Jesus
guide your days.
The past is gone
so rearrange
your lifetime with
a simple change.

Breath Of The Wind

The beginning of day
might display some wind
that of a smile
from a real good friend.
A scenic perception,
a windy type smile
can change what’s long
into just a while.
The breath of the wind
on a worrisome day
makes dancing leaves
blow troubles away.
Each scenes in rhythm
the way that it breathes
as the wind blows
those autumn day leaves.
Each minute projected
becomes such a flair
displayed with beauty
with sights everywhere.
A colorful essence
that blessings transcend
comes from the moments
breath of the wind.

Falls Persuasion

Autumn colors
sky and ground
become stages
sight and sound.
Falls persuasion
tempter true
becomes colors
wondrous view.
Life’s performance
painted dream
might just be a
crystal stream.
Colors gleaming
their reflection
within autumns
true connection.
Falls persuasion
paints this view
by a river
waters blue.

Train Trestle

A rusty bridge
that waits a train
stands through time
with wind and rain.
An old train trestle
stands so true
as a magical
autumn view.
Painted moments
come alive
as the train tracks
do survive.
That train trestle
stands through time
waiting for a
moments mind.
Autumns colors
soon unpack
the sounds of time
a clickety-clack.
A choo-choo train
to come on through
that old train trestle
a timeless view.

Christmas Photograph

Wintertime’s wonderland
in snowy white fields
finds that Old Santa Claus
with dogs on his heels
A scene within Christmas
real early to find
displays the magical
Christmas design.
A Christmas photograph
with trees glistened white
becomes as the memories
of seasons delight.
Yes a mere photograph
with joyful surprise
might become a painting
for children’s wide eyes.
A scene with old Santa
and dog sized reindeer
headed through the snow
to spread Christmas cheer.

Christmas Bridge

Across a river
a bridge is stood,
Christmas beginnings
a neighborhood.
A Christmas bridge
through ice and snow
helps the people
to go to and fro.
The Christmas river
is soon to freeze
right beside
the snowy trees.
With Christmastime
and moments seen
the Christmas bridge
is all agleam.
Found with passion
the snowy days
the Christmas bridge
is there to gaze.
Sparkling snowflakes
a distant ridge
echo upon the
Christmas bridge.

A Road Of Snow

A road of snow
that leads to town
is found on days
that snow falls down.
Flakes of white
will cover the path
the road to town
as time goes past.
Christmas songs
are heard so clear
a road of snow
this time of year.
The joyful wake
that spreads around
are sights we see
when headed to town.
A Christmas journey
oh so slow
is found upon
a road of snow.

Sailing At Sunset

Within a painting
a ship’s out at sea
sailing at sunset
with birds flying free.
Seagulls of white
will flutter and fly,
meanwhile the captain
tells seashore goodbye.
Seeking deep waters
to sail on with time,
sailing at sunset
with seashore behind.
Onto a journey
a mysterious event,
as the sails gasp
for a sailing intent.
Soon the sun’s gone
as it fades out of sight,
sailing at sunset
and into the night.

Mysterious minds
seek advice from ignorance
and only find quotes.

The minutes we count
might not be that important
as doorways are closed.

The shadow of life
is a story of a time
that lives in our mind.

Behind everyone
is a person that is good
to motivate you.

Flavors of a dream
can be candy coated life
tasted with your thoughts.

Life behind a door
might hold but only your fears
awaiting your view.

Looking for a path
could make you miss your journey,
for the path was there.

Looking for a storm
often brings one much stronger
than you had planned on.

A glimmer of hope
can be a rainbow of life
inside of a cloud.

Lost in a nightmare
you might forget there is peace
found within a prayer.

Melodies that play
bring back distant memories
maybe good or bad.

Various changes
become differences in time
that could be struggles.

Bewildered people
often seek common answers
to things not common.

As autumn leaves fall
the winter winds come knocking
at the doors of time.

Beyond what we see
are things that are well hidden
that we know not of.

A shower of rain
can be a welcomed moment
or someone’s nightmare.

Now is a time frame
that often gets overlooked,
due to yesterday.

Having and holding
does not mean that you own things,
that might not be yours.

Double exposure
is the insight of pictures
and also people.

Always turning right
will lead you in a circle
if you do not change.

A budding flower
displays its journey through time
to become beauty.

Anger is a path
that can become unstable
and hurt ones you love.

Judy’s newest books (Pearlescent)
and (Just Get Up And dance) can be
found here which has all of her books.
Take a look sometime.
My wife Judy’s Poetry other books 🙂
{Moonlight and Owls by Judy Pearce}
and her newest
{Hello My Name Is Benny}
They can also be found at Amazon
Ben Geurts Drawing Art site
and Old Fashioned Christmas site
My Animal’s Greetings site below
One of my friends sites below
and once again the poetry contest at
Me on YouTube
Your frosty friend Bill 🙂


Hello my friends

It’s been a great week for fall colors.
Judy and I took a drive back down to
Baxter State Park Tuesday and got a
ton of great fall colors.  We then went
down south once again Friday to the
Million Dollar View and then took a
drive down the back roads and found
a lot more fall colors to take pictures
of.  We’ve got many hundreds of great
pictures of fall in its glory.  LOL we
went down a few roads that were in
question of being roads at all hehehe.
We found some old train tracks with
an awesome bridge that I took a little
stroll on and took a ton of pictures of.
Judy took a bunch of pictures of me
on my little train track stroll hehehe.
I even wrote a poem of my stroll and
put it into a picture poem.  Anyways
to make a long story a little longer 🙂
we took a ton of fall pictures.  Over
500 pictures. So going through them
picking out the best ones and deleting
the repeats and blurry ones has been
quite a chore.  It’ll be hard to pick
out a few for my stationary,  but I’ll
git-r-done.  I brought my tripod on
both of our fall drives and got a few
photos of Judy and I together and
on our second drive got a nice photo
of us and the boys.  Yep,  it’s been a
nice passed week.  Our landlord came
Saturday and moved the extra room
addition to our house,  but it needs
a lot of work before it will be done.
He still has to raise it up to match
our house so we can get out of the
front door and then get it sealed up
and the electric wired to it.  Then
he’s gotta get the steps set up so we
can get out.  Yep,  a lot of work and
he’s doing it by himself which means,
it will take longer than it would if
he had hired someone to help him out
being that I can only help to a small
degree.  I’m not helpless  but I’m very
limited on what I am able to do.  So,
I pray that he can get it all done soon,
because our boys are really confused
having to use the back door,  plus the
fact that Benny is scared of the dark
and we have not got a porch light
on the back door.  It be pitch black
at night when it’s cloudy or pitch dark
as many will say not knowing what it
means LOL.  The weather’s becoming
more like winter as each day passes.
Anyways,  we do hope that the front
porch is fixed before soon.  Hopefully
this week.  He said it would only take
him a day, but that has been proven to
be false LOL.  So,  what else is going
on around The Pearce’s Place?  Hmm,
well,  Judy has painted a bunch more
paintings.  She’s getting better with
every stroke of the brush.  I’ve used
a lot of her artwork for picture poems.
She’s begun doing more freehand and
a lot less tracing.  I still have a lot to
do on my first painting LOL.  It’s a
freehand,  but not coming out quite
as well as Judy’s LOL.  In time I’ll
finish it.  I guess I just don’t have the
skills to be a painter/artist.  Unless
you call poetry artwork hehehe.  Of
course I do use many of my poems
for picture poetry LOL.  Benny is
in the other room now barking at
our landlord.  He’s back to work on
the porch addition.  He brought his
granddaughter,  again.  She spent a
lot of time hanging with me and Judy
yesterday.  We became baby sitters 🙂
Judy gave her some paper and let her
use her paints.  Before that I spent
a lot of time outside with her and
her little computer games and we
took a little stroll in the field or to
her it was a stroll.  To me it was a
aching walk hehehe.  She had hold
of my fingers pulling me with her 🙂
I have no idea what he is doing out
there right now and I’m not about to
go and find out,  because I might end
up baby sitting again.  Our grandson
Christian wanted to come over this
weekend,  but Judy and I had made
plans to go for a drive Friday or
Saturday to take pictures.  Maybe
next weekend he’ll come.  Kids grow
up so fast.  I’m sure that’s what my
mom is saying every day.  Me and
Peggy will always be her children,
but in the real world,  the years are
showing on us.  I try to call my mom
at least twice a week or more and
talk for a while.  I know she misses
Judy and I.  When we were in Texas,
we used to spend a lot of time doing
stuff together.  But,  life moves on
and the pages of our journals are
rewritten as we get older as the
past holds on as burning memories.
God is always in control,  whether
we can see His work in motion or
not.  A lot of His work is unseen
until God uncovers the veil at the
appropriate time for us to see His
work.  Thank You God for all of
the blessings that You have given
me in my lifetime as well as all of
the blessings that You give us each
one as each day becomes the past.
Now I believe it’s time for me to
begin my little search back through
all that I’ve written here to see if
I can find a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s
brand new poem.  So it’s away I go
to that little place of my recollection
that I always like to call Recollect
Ville.  I think I found a decent title
about a 3rd down from the beginning
of my rambling 🙂  Now to see if I can
do anything with it.  Here goes.

Every Stroke Of The Brush

With a picture in mind
and a moments times hush
a painting comes alive
every stroke of the brush.
Maybe just a moment
that time had painted well,
but a blessing is gathered
with patterns to compel.
Minutes are a painting
as artwork for the eyes
as trees of autumn display
below the cloudy skies.
Every stroke of the brush
can become as a time
a persons own artwork
or words of a rhyme.
Seasons come alive
as the pages are turned
every stroke of the brush
becomes seconds discerned.
Scenes with an echo
might be times of a hush
as artwork comes alive
every stroke of the brush.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope that wasn’t
to corny for ya LOL.  I guess I’ve got
painting on the brain.  Judy finished one
painting just a minute ago and has now
started yet another.  The challenge for
this week is Fall colors.  Last week was
owls.  Judy will often paint just random
pictures.  She painted one  picture last
week that was a Snow Globe.  I had
sent her a picture of one and she did
her magic free handing it and I think
she did a great job on it and I wrote
a poem about it making it a picture
poem.  I think her painting looked
better than the picture 🙂  I might be
a tad bias,  but I think her painting
was pretty freaking good.  Right now
she’s doing a painting of a fall field
with hay bales off of a picture that
I took the other day.  Her painting
never looks exactly like the picture,
but that’s what make it the best in
my book.  She free hands with her
perception of the photo.  Anyways,
I don’t think I have anything more
to tell you aside from what I tell
you almost every week and that is,
I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers,  10 more poems with 2 of
them being Christmas poems and
an added 5 poems due to all of the
picture poems that I started doing
LOL.  I also wrote 22 more haiku
for all of the haiku lovers out there.
OK so I guess it’s time for me to
begin my search for that hardly
elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a wonderful weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a truly
blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.
OK,  where are ya hiding ya lil
off switch varmint?  Hmm,  LOL,
I see ya you silly thing.  I know
those batteries looked like a nice
place to hide,  but they do roll ya
know.  Plus they are only triple
A batteries.  Maybe ya should of
hidden behind the double A’s 🙂
I might not of seen ya then LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzz.

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

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+5 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

That Harvest Moon

A scarecrow of time
in a field full of corn
watches the night sky
from time he was born.
Within that harvest moon
he stands oh so tall
watching the cornfield
timeless through fall.
The stars seem to twinkle
some signals below
found as the stories
that so many know.
Within the moonlight
the time comes attune
as colors of the sky
from that harvest moon.

Orange Sky Of Eve

A mountainous display
paints up the view
in an orange sky of eve
from a day sky of blue.
It might seem as magic
with a moment of style
as an orange sky of eve
shows a mountainous smile.
A dream weavers pathway
in a picturesque theme
is the orange sky of eve
as a wonderful scene.
A god given blessing
from the soon sky of night
is an orange sky of eve
as the sun fades from sight.
Scenes become shadows
and awaken the view
as an orange sky of eve
makes dreams to come true.
A photographers chance
to most surely perceive
day meeting nighttime
with an orange sky of eve.

Beyond The Twilight

When nighttime’s displayed
a view is withheld.
Beyond the twilight
a story is spelled.
Words of a glimmer
with starlight to shine.
Beyond the twilight
is a magical sign.
Scenes come to life then
in darkness of space,
beyond the twilight
with soulful embrace.
So many miracles
with unending ink,
beyond the twilight
a moment to think.
Space conversations
as words are inlaid.
Beyond the twilight
are sights that evade.
Ones interpretations
might not be so right,
beyond the twilight
in darkness of night.

Sky Of Haze

Time is ticking
sky of haze
bringing forth
another phase.
Changing patterns
often viewed
sky of haze
is then accrued.
Golden colors
many gaze
with the clockwork
sky of haze.
Time is finding
orangish hues
sky of haze
to interfuse.
Wondrous glimmers
then unfold
sky of haze
a story told
and with windows
times provide
sky of haze
can never hide.

Autumns Wake

Looking for colors
of autumns design
there are some ages
of leaves in refine.
Found brown and yellow
within autumns wake
there are some colors
across a small lake.
Textured with stages
of colors so bright
autumns wake displays
in daytimes sunlight.
Seen as a painting,
but then a photograph
as someone with camera
records it to last.
Then with a picture
of a seasonal lake
one can remember
the view autumns wake.

The Oceans Mind

Beyond the rhythms
of waves that  crash
there’s a story
of times to pass.
Many vessels
will find their place
the oceans mind
a distant race.
Waves will grow
to bring surprise
maybe rogue
a larger size.
The oceans mind
has only views
how and when
it gives the news.
Time to time
as waves roll in
the oceans mind
begins agin.
It but only
shows design
when it wants,
the oceans mind.

Peace Is A Journey

Life is a threshold
of time laden views
pages of ages
we might each confuse.
Peace is a journey
that needs inner hope
to remove all the dust
and learn how to cope.
Time begins counting
even when we are still
as with our journey
for things to fulfill.
Fragments of pieces
that we each live through
can become lessons
to make a new you.
Peace is a journey
and not just a game,
for it’s a portion
of life to attain.
Losing the baggage
of your yesteryears
helps for the future
your journey endears.
Don’t let the bad times
to get you off track.
Peace is a journey
from thereto and back.

A Single Snowflake

As wintertime yields
its own times release
a single snowflake
floats down with peace.
Then as many brothers
and sisters join in
a single snowflake
begins to just grin.
Leaving its mark then
found on the ground
with a white family
found all around.
Painting up hillsides
and valleys below
a single snowflake
hears HoHoHo.
A sleigh is found flying
up high in the sky
as more snow is falling
from there way up high.
It’s old Santa Claus
and reindeer in flight
while the snow’s falling
so deep in the night.
A single snowflake
looks up then to see
what Santa brought him
and his family.
The snowflake slept there
in nighttime to morn
and when he awoke
a snowman was born.
A single snowflake
that was joined by a few
became the very heartbeat
for snow to accrue.
A single snowflake
that was found in a drift
saw he’d been part of
a Christmastime gift.
Built by some children
with snow on their mind
that got up early
to surely design.
Old Mr. Snowman
now so big and round
is a single snowflake
with more from the ground.
For that little snowflake
joined with some others
made Mr. Snowman
with sisters and brothers.
A Christmastime scene
from flakes of pure white
a single snowflake
began such a sight.
Then as the daylight
faded from view
a single snowflake
then bid its adieu.
For it found a special
time to endear
found within Christmas
that great time of year.

Time For Peace

Art of passion,
art of time,
a moments peace
needs nows design.
Time for peace
to come ignite
life of love
a greater sight.
Let’s end hatred,
let’s move on.
Time for peace
needs dusk to dawn.
Don’t let anger
fuel your drive.
Find some peaceful
found inside.
Seek that innermost
spark of love
that is glowing
from above.
Let’s make hatred
to decrease,
for it’s surely
time for peace.

An Autumn Stroll

A leisure walk
through colored leaves,
an autumn stroll
a story weaves.
In the distance
ones of time
walk this way
in falls design.
An autumn stroll,
camera in hand
becomes pictures
oh so grand.
A point in time
now shadows cast,
an autumn stroll
is from the past.
As a doorway
colored hue,
all my photos
still live true.
A leisure walk,
an autumn stroll
is a photo
times of ole.

The Snow Globe

Inside a small home
a snow globe of time
awaits for the moment
to come out and shine.
The snow globe of glass
for Christmas delight
awaits to be shook up
and show its great sight.
White snow to billow
and float gracefully
inside of the snow globe
with flakes fancy free.
The scenes come alive
as a story unfurls
looking like Christmas
with snowflakes of pearls.
Minutes of blessings
come with a shake,
that little snow globe
scenes to partake.
The time frames within it
are a Christmassy glow
as someone shakes up
the snow globe of snow.

Tracking Through Time

Found on the train tracks
I walk for a mile
to a bridge in the distance
that takes quite a while.
My footsteps were many
on a rough gravel path
beside the old train track
of future and past.
Tracking through time
as my footsteps are heard
the rocks beneath my feet
are an old written word.
Found as but a moment
of a distant times trail
tracking through time
with a story to tell.
I then found myself
on the center of time
upon the old train tracks
with a lot on my mind.
Found in the distance
is me walking back
tracking through time
on a railroad train track.

Wheat In The Field

Waiting for its harvest
the wheat in the field
has a great journey
a moment to yield.
Yellow with beauty
those grains will wave
telling their story
of a so distant day.
Amber waves of grain
that rustle in the breeze
tell of God’s glory
from sea to distant seas.
Wheat in the field
shows signs of true life
found from the past days
filled full of strife.
Yet within the pages
that our future foretells
wheat in the field
shows life that excels.
Painted with brush strokes
of bright yellow hues
wheat in the field
shows choices to choose.

An Evening Sea

A child’s sandcastle
in evenings wake
is joined with a seagull,
a picture to make.
Scenes are arising
with orange and blue
as an evening sea
then bids its adieu.
Night’s soon to follow
as evening arrives
with bucket and shovel
for a sandcastle’s size.
The scene is a moment
that time’s painted well
in an evening sky
with a story to tell.
A little starfish
watches minutes tick on
with an evening sea
as time moves along.

Thanksgiving Feast

Thankful for harvest
and amber of wheats,
autumn displays the
Thanksgiving feast.
Pumpkins and apples,
potatoes and more,
the Thanksgiving feast
is more to explore.
Needing to be thankful
for what all we’ve got,
because oh so many
have not got a lot.
The Thanksgiving feast
needs truth to include
and give to the many
that have little food.
Gifts from the heart
of what you can give

A midst of moments
finds it perplexing inside
if you don’t belong.

Walls that we build up
might prevent the good people
from getting inside.

Windows of our minds
are as doorways to changes
our actions rely.

Singular thinking
can denote weird perception
of reality.

Life of a snowflake
finds itself as merely water
that has been frozen.

A hillside of time
might have a steep drop surprise
that makes ones tumble.

The mention of hate
puts many at their stations
awaiting a war.

A challenge for strength
often finds ones misconceived
of how strong they are.

Beyond a flower
lives a seed of life to grow
as seasons allow.

Braving thunderstorms
can prove that you are fearless
or really stupid.

Without a snowflake
a snowman cannot exist,
for he’s made from snow.

A path through the trees
might lead you to a river
or a real deep hole.

Scenes found of Christmas
often have photos of snow
that many don’t see.

Dreams of a heartbeat
that’s beating the same as yours
can become nightmares.

The sleight of ones hand
might hide the truth behind it,
so look more closely.

Lies are dynamite
with a unknowing fuse length,
with truth that explodes.

A story written
that becomes ones true beliefs,
does not make it true.

The epicenter
of Earthquakes or illusion
are both with damage.

A mere breath of air
is a blessing to receive
when suffocating.

Spirits around us
are with good and bad chapters
to help or to hurt.

Conviction of thought
can become a troubled life,
for we might be wrong.

The winds of winter
blow briskly with the snowflakes
making many mounds.

Hello my friends

Well,  the hands of the old clock on the
wall tell me that today is mine and Judy’s
wedding anniversary,  so I’m getting an
early start on writing this.  This passed
week has been a fairly peaceful one.  Not
much has gone on.  We were going to a
drive down to Baxter State Park,  but as
we checked on the internet on the Maine’s
fall foliage page,  we noticed that they’d not
yet begun to change,  but it looks like this
week might be prosperous.  We’ll keep an
eye on the foliage maps as well as our eye
on what that is outside and find the best
time to take a trip down south for some
fall pictures.  Judy and I went up north of
us to Presque Isle last Wednesday for her
doctors appointment and there were very
few signs of fall colors.  A few,  but not
what we’re looking for.  Judy is fixing to
head over to her brothers house to do a
little clean up and what not,  but she’ll be
home this afternoon in time for her and
I to go out to eat at Grammy’s in Linneus
Maine.  We’ve never been to that place.
We hear that the food’s good.  No matter,
we’ll most surely enjoy it.  Yeppers today
is our 15 year wedding anniversary.  Can
you believe it?  She’s put up with me for
15 years now LOL.  So tell me now,  what
is a 15 year anniversary?  Aluminum LOL.
Judy has done quite a few more paintings
and I’ve done quite a few more picture
poems.  I guess one could say we spend a
lot of time doing stuff LOL.  It seems that
Judy and her sisters,  daughters and kin
have all gotten the painting fever and now
every week they come up with a different
challenge to paint.  This week it’s owls 🙂
Last week was Harvest such as farms and
trees and fruits and vegetables.  I’m sure
I’ll be doing many more picture poems LOL.
Judy wants me to do up about 150 of them
so she can put them in a book.  I have one
or two from the beginning that I want to
redo such as the pictures,  but the rest are
good to go.  Also due to me starting this
picture poetry epidemic,  I’ve been writing
a few more poems every week than the
norm LOL.  Hey,  I can’t help it that I’ve
got a busy mind.  The weather up this way
has been sort of bouncing around from
the 50’s to the 60’s with a few 32 degree
nights.  Once again,  that is Fahrenheit 🙂
not Celsius or Centigrade.  While Judy’s
over at her brothers house I might take
the boys out for a little field trip if I’ve
got time before Judy gets home.  I fixed
us a couple of pancakes,  1 egg and 2
sausage links a piece for breakfast.  I
was just going to fix 3 pancakes and 2
sausages a piece,  but I figured today is
special,  so pancakes, eggs and sausage
was the menu.  I enjoy cooking for us.
We take turns doing the cooking.  She
made us omelets for breakfast yesterday.
Yeppers,  The Pearce’s Place is still
filled with love.  Both Benny and Rocky
just came in here and started staring at
me LOL.  Judy couldn’t take them with
her,  so they’re stuck with me hehehe.
No matter,  I’m sure they’ll enjoy it if I’m
able to take them for a field trip.  They
both get ecstatic over thoughts of that.
Benny wanted to go out in the field so
bad yesterday that he even disobeyed
me,  but I only gave him a light tap on
his hind end and he headed back to the
house.  So,  I’ll try and hurry this along.
They were just now raising a ruckus
in the living room LOL.  Benny was in
a playful mood and pestering Rocky 🙂
which I might add was a change of pace.
It’s usually just the opposite with Rocky
pestering Benny hehehe.  Anyways they
both followed me back in here jumping
up on me all the way and I gave them
both a treat.  Now maybe they’ll settle
down for a bit so I can get this dad gum
article written LOL.  Life is good.  It
has a few aches and pains within it,  but
all in all,  life is good.  Judy is getting
around a bit better now after getting
her cortisone shots in her knees.  Now
when we go down to Baxter State Park
she will be able to walk around with me
and take pictures more than she did
last time 🙂  God has been taking good
care of us.  LOL I just felt the eyes of
a dog staring at me.  Rocky is sat right
behind me,   just staring a hole in my
back hehehe.  Thank You God for all
that You have done for us and all that
You will surely do.  We praise Your
name always through Your Son Jesus
Christ.  Now I believe it’s time for me
to be looking back over all that I have
written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem.  So,
it’s away I go,  to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title not far from the beginning
of my rambling LOL.  Now to see if I
can do anything with it.  Here goes.

From The Beginning

Scenes within minutes
found within days
from the beginning
was time changing phase.
Pages from a journal
written in time
from the beginning
were rhythm and rhyme.
Each with our patterns
connected from afar
from the beginning
was God’s shining star.
He brought together
our lives to be true
from the beginning
with me unto you.
Our lives have blossomed
much more yet to see
from the beginning
to our anniversary.
I love you my darling,
I love you my wife
from the beginning
and all of my life.

Happy 15 year anniversary Judy <3

So there ya go.  I hope you enjoyed all of
my rambling and maybe even the poem 🙂
Yes,  I can honestly say,  that my life with
Judy has been the best of years.  I hope and
pray that my daughters marriage is filled
with many blessings as well.  Judy and I
send our love.  I hope to meet Brennon one
day soon.  He seems to be a great guy and
he most definitely seems to make you happy
and that makes me happy.  You deserve to
have happiness in your life.  I’m sure he will
make Sami a great step dad.  So what else
is there to tell ya?  Hmm,  well my mom is
going through old pictures and sending me
the ones that are of me and hopefully she
can find some of my old friend Pepper. She
was my first dog,  but sad to say I was not
as good a friend to her as she was to me.
I guess my immaturity was at play.  She
was still my best friend.  She would run
along with me when I went on my bike
rides.  Anyways,  she still lives within my
heart and mind.  I hope my mom can find
a few pictures of her to send to me.  That
would surely be the greatest gift.  OK,
before I start the waterworks hehehe
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 an added 7 due to
the picture poems LOL.  Nope,  none
of them are Christmas poems,  but 1 of
them is about Benny hehehe The Snow
Dog.  1 of the poems is a birthday poem
that I wrote for my daughter last week.
Also 🙂  there is a cute little Halloween
poem in there that kind of sort of ups
the count to 18 poems,  but it’s only just
but a few lines hehehe.  Also I wrote 22
more haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  So I hope you can find 1 or
2 of either or both that you like.  Now
it’s time for me to begin searching for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now
before I make that search for that
off switch,  I’m gonna stop and wait
till after Judy and I have come back
from our anniversary dinner.  Hello
again,  We’re back and we had a nice
dinner,  but had to bring much of it
home being we couldn’t eat it all 🙂
So it looks like we have food for
a midnight snack or whatever you
wanna call it LOL.  I took a few
pictures there and to and a couple
of Judy and I.  One of Judy when
we got to Grammy’s and then one
when we got home.  We’re full.  OH
and yes I took the boys out for a lil
field trip and they had a blast 🙂 OK,
now where are you ya ornery little
off switch critter?  I see ya there in
the midst of my Cheese Puffs LOL.
If the bag wasn’t crinkling every
time you moved I might not of seen
you hehehe.  Maybe next week 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+7 and 1 tiny one 🙂 and 22 hehehe 🙂

Mountain View

The sun found setting
in the sky
leaves a painting
with a sigh.
Evenings portrait
painted well
with a story
times to tell.
The sun’s a glimmer
seen to fade,
a mountain view
the evening laid.
Seasons changing
make more clear
the scenes we see
and things we hear.
The sun found setting
leaves a trace
timeless moments
sights can taste.
Scenes that once were
skies of blue
are then a faded
mountain view.

Lighthouse Of Blue

The seas with waves
create the view
within the sight,
lighthouse of blue.
The oceans shore
is just a time
the lighthouse sits
with its great shine.
The lighthouse of blue,
life’s guiding light
in darkness of waves,
is the greatest sight.
The lighthouse keeper
gives peaceful array
while his light shines
to brighten the gray.
The seasons evade
that wonderful view
that bright light at night,
light house of blue.

Pigtails Swinging

A little girl swinging
in the moonlight,
stars brightly shining
into the night.
With her little puppy
just smiling with love
watching the little girl
below stars above.
Pigtails swinging
in the nights breeze,
ropes on a branch
and a seat in the trees.
The evenings journal,
written in the moon
seems as a dream
with starlight attune.
Pigtails swinging,
teddy bear in hand
dreams of the magic
from the sandman.

The Starlight Hours

Beyond the night sky
the starlight will play
with hours counted then
unto the day.
Stars as the seasons
become as a stage,
displayed as twinkles,
the turn of a page.
The starlight hours
are counted and seen
sometimes a passage
found in a dream.
Life becomes minutes
and seconds to find
within the starlight
and every design.
Scenes come alive
with Heavenly flowers
found in the night sky
the starlight hours.

My Birthday Girl

Today’s a great day
that the minutes transpire
a life of a moment
a candle afire.
Your age is a number
that time frames display,
while in a whisper
breathes of today.
My birthday girl
has grown up to find
the essence of love
and greatest of time.
Now with her own child
she grows even more
to find all the blessings
that God has in store.
I love you my daughter
and wish for you true
to have a great day
Happy birthday to you.

Windows Of The Soul

Sights found misdirected
are often very true,
for even misdirected
there’s truth within the view.
Windows of the soul
are scenes that many see,
for they are found so often
a place in you and me.
Life is often patterned
after what all that we’ve seen
then within our windows
becomes a raging stream.
Clueless with the minutes
that our windows open wide
and leave within our moments
lessons then applied.
For within every heartbeat
is a time to take its toll,
but God is there to guide your
windows of the soul.

Now is but a fraction
actions then applied
sometimes seen redundant,
times that coincide.
Pictures of a painting
found upon a wall
might be an abstraction
of winter or of fall.
Even as the minutes
tick on their own way
some might find redundant
what many do or say.
Yet it’s just perception
of how so many view
that becomes redundant
in what that ones will do.
But the term redundant
is not always the same,
for it is so often
a new time to attain.

A Mirrored You

Often when we’re angered
it’s just because we see
someone with a pattern
that we do not agree.
Sometimes though that person
might be a mirrored you
with your own reflection
and all of which you do.
Many times our anger
will start within ourselves
something we remember
that lived upon our shelves.
A mirrored you of moments
that time has magnified
that of which you’re seeing
in others now applied.
Lessons come as dewdrops
sometimes as the rain
and a mirrored you perception
might not live in your vein.

An Autumn Drive

While on a drive
through yesteryear
the scenes of time
become more clear.
An autumn drive
that’s so inlaid,
trees with colors
that God made.
The rolling wheels
of timeless view
an autumn drive
displays its hue.
With many colors
dawn to night,
an autumn drive
is such a sight.
The scenery seems
to come alive
amidst the time
an autumn drive.

On The Edge

Taking pictures
standing still,
on the edge
it might appeal.
Gradient scenes
changing fast,
on the edge
a shadow’s cast.
Heavens venture
opens wide
on the edge
with time applied.
Leisure moments
might be made
on the edge
a bit mislaid.
Often scenes are
better found
on the edge
with solid ground.

Ripples In Time

Seen as a ripple
sometimes a wave
ripples in time
are found every day.
Often a memoir
a turbulent time
is just a ripple
found in design.
So many ripples
in waters of age
might be a moment
found upon stage.
Just but a second
seeming as more,
time’s but a threshold
needing an oar.
Found in the waters
some rocks might shine
as many lessons
ripples of time.

Paradise Bench

Amidst the colors
of leaves so bright
there is a bench
that sits so right.
It is a moment
suspended in time,
a paradise bench
that is so divine.
Ones that sit there
will see the display,
the colors of fall
in a magical way.
Paradise bench,
a wonderful hue
displays the times
of then thereunto.
A place to rest
in seasons great sight
paradise bench
each day unto night.

Political Vibe

Trivial misconceptions
will often grow too large,
a political vibe of action
might then take full charge.
Not paying mind to needing
and losing track of view,
a political vibe of action
might be less than true.
Standpoints situations
of seasons in the sand,
a political vibe of action
might not be so grand.
For with the pages turning
and all that many see,
a political vibe of action
might end in debris.
Trivial minutes focused
can become pain applied,
so look for the importance
and not political vibe.

The Snow Dog

Silence of winter
is snow falling down
white fluffy flakes
collect on the ground.
We’ve got a small dog
that just loves to play
in the sunshine above us
and snow every day.
Yes he’s the snow dog
so fluffy and white
found on the snow mounds
when they’re in sight.
Our little doggy
just watches in wait
for the snow season
to come and create.
White snow to play in
and enjoy the view,
but now he’s just dreaming
of snow to accrue.
During the summer
he might sit on a log,
but during the winter
he is the snow dog.
He then is sitting
on snow mounds of white
found in the daytime
and also at night.
He is the snow dog
our little loving boy
as he is bouncing
and filled full of joy.

It’s Pointless

As troubles come
and seasons appear
truly it’s pointless
to just shed a tear.
For with the moments
and with the days,
time is found moving
sometimes as a haze.
Truly it’s pointless
to let ones inside
and create anger
that you cannot hide.
Look for the glimmers,
look for the shine
in all the blessings
from Lord God Divine.
Search through the days
and also each night
and find the joy
of God’s Holy light.
For yes it’s pointless
to just mope around,
when you could be then
upon solid ground.

Witch Of Green

Bewitching Themes
of Halloween
are found to be
yellow and green
as the times
of creepy rhymes
might define
a witch of green.

Photographer’s View

Scenes in a meadow
with colors so fine
display the pictures
a photographer finds.
Found in formation
of colorful days,
a photographer’s view
is a wonderful gaze.
Seen is his shadow
with camera in hand
the photographer’s view
of where he may stand.
Some houses blending
into the photograph
painting a picture
of future and past.
Then as the minutes
leave their timely trace
the photographer’s view
shall not then erase.

Semblance Of Time

Train tracks to nowhere
yet somewhere it seems
the semblance of time
is found in a dream.
Hope of a turnstile
to be found in a time
like a train going nowhere
yet still seeks to find.
Many stand  on corners
and don’t even try
as the semblance of time
is how they comply.
The facts of a moment
are train tracks of time
leading a train down
to somewheres rewind.
Often misconceptions
are the scenes many see
as semblance of time
with a skeleton key.

for Oct 1,  2016

Designs of a place
are often the reflections
of a persons soul.

Autumns occurrence
is as a colorful theme
created with leaves.

Life with a flower
is as aromas of time
that is poetry.

With clouds floating by
there are chances for thunder
with a little rain.

Dispersed imagery
paints a picture of the mind
with dreams and nightmares.

Life in a nutshell
might need to be cracked open
to show its beauty.

Clowns found parading
might be headed to no good
or maybe parties.

Pondering issues
can open a door for fear
and what that can be.

Below the starlight
holds a magical kingdom
that your dreams can find.

So many moments
that we find within our lives
are only windows.

Trivial desires
can be either good or bad,
for desires tell truth.

Photographers dreams
can be a mere photograph
that eludes their time.

Cherished emotions
are the pleasures remembered
that keep us going.

Discolored water
leaves the thoughts of pollution
or maybe Kool-Aid.

Change needs some action
within your thinking patterns
and the things you do.

The class clown of life
will maybe display humor
to hide what is real.

Beyond what we see
are things that truly exist,
but in their own realm.

Placing a grade
on the lives of many
can be very wrong.

Sometimes a mirror
only shows what we’re  wanting
and not what that’s real.

The age of beauty
has no number upon it
as life shows appeal.

A word that’s spoken
becomes an action in place
so take care what’s said.

Now is just a time
that in time will be the past
as minutes tick on.
