ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

We had a little storm come through this
morning and boy did it make a racket 🙂
The lightning and thunder put on a show
as the rain came pouring down.  Judy and
I just laid in bed listening to the magical
show.  Fortunately I had let the boys out
to go potty before the rain began hehehe.
Thank God,  because getting them to go
outside when it’s raining is almost like a
dentist pulling teeth from a sasquatch LOL.
Plus Benny is afraid of thunder as well as
scared of the dark hehehe.  I think Rocky
is just scared of everything hehehe.  He’s
very shy.  Benny though is the first to go
and greet the neighbors dog LOL.  But
not Rocky.  He has of yet to of gotten
close enough to it to even smell it hehehe.
Rocky always runs back in the house when
anybody walks over from next door LOL.
Yep,  Benny ‘s the greeter and Rocky’s
the retreater 🙂  LOL sorry about that,
a little of the poet in me sneaking out 🙂
We’ve still not had any (what ones would
call) hot days,  but we’ve had a few warm
ones and the humidity made it a little
uncomfortable.  Today’s high is supposed
to be 74 F which it is right now at 2:22 PM.
The week isn’t supposed to be too bad with
a high for Monday and Tuesday supposed
to be 78 F and then the rest of the week in
the lower 70’s.  LOL summer wasn’t too
bad for us up here.  Even the bugs weren’t
too bad.  Not much happening around
this place.  Judy went out to eat with her
sisters Thursday.  I wish I had family or
friends to do things with.  Oh well,  that’s
my life.  Next topic.  It’s looking like we
might finally get our extension on the house
finished,  but it’s still too soon to tell LOL.
I told our landlord I hope it’s at least done
before winter,  being that then would be
too late.  I bought some screening that I’m
going to put up in the windows when he
finally gets done.  I also bought some knobs
for the windows to open the windows.  So
life goes on.  There seems to be not much
in this weeks schedule. Judy hasn’t got any
doctors appointments and as usual,  I have
nothing planned other than taking pictures
and writing as I do always Hahaha.  Not
much changes in my days and weeks other
than the time and date.  Yep,  the Pearce’s
Place is as exciting as always LOL. Rocky
just strolled in and laid down in his doggy
bed.  I’m guessing that Benny is still in the
living room on his favorite recliner hehehe.
Yep,  a real lively place Hahaha.  I think
I just found out why Rocky came slithering
in here.  It’s because he was a naughty boy
and pooped in the kitchen floor.  I heard
Judy scold him and put him outside.  I did
think it strange that Rocky didn’t come in
here wanting treats or anything.  He knew
he screwed up.  He’s a Shih Tzu.  What can
I say.  They’re one of the most stubborn
breeds of dogs.  On a good note, it’s the
first time in a long while that he’s pooped
in the house.  He’s sitting on the back steps
now pouting LOL.  Either Judy or I will
let him back in after a bit,  but he’s gotta
know that doing potty in the house is not
acceptable and he will be punished for it.
We love our boys,  but unfortunately you
cannot punish dogs as humans being that
they do not understand every thing we
say.  LOL to them it’s gotta sound like
Charlie Browns teachers.  Bla bla bla bla
bla bla,  bla bla NO,  BAD DOG,  bla bla.
So we try to teach them by showing them
what they did wrong and say no and maybe
even give them a little spanking just enough
that they understand to a somewhat degree
what they did wrong and that it is not where
to do it.  Then we put them outside to show
them where they are to do their daily routine.
We do thank God for these little boys.  They
keep us entertained.  Yes they do every so
often get on our nerves,  but most of all they
fill our hearts with joy.  We have our fair
share of problems, but for the most part we
have many blessings.  I’m still lonely for
family and friends,  but I reckon I’ll survive.
Through the grace of God all things will be
well.  Maybe not as perfect as we would like
them to be,  but that’s life.  So I reckon it’s
time for me to be taking my little venture
back through all that I’ve written here to
see if I can find a good word or phrase that
I can use for the tittle for today’s brand new
poem.  And so it’s away I go to that place
of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe I found a
decent title just a few lines back and now
after checking I see I have not used it yet
and so it shall be used today Mwahahaha 🙂

Maybe Not

Now’s a story
filled with ways
things proportioned
in our days.
Maybe not
the life we wish
as a turnstile
found delish.
Time’s a joker
playing games
with the portions
time attains.
Yet our wantings
of a lot
might be things of
maybe not.
Let your lifestyle
find a phase
maybe not of
wanting ways,
but of blessings
God gives you
changing how you
view each view.

I hope you enjoyed the poem and maybe
even understood it.  Of course the poem was
actually for me,  but I’ll share 🙂  Also I hope
you enjoyed all of my rambling.  I hope it did
not bore you too much hehehe.  No matter 🙂
If it brought a little grin to your face,  then it
did its purpose.  Oh yea,  we had a visit from
our grandson Christian.  He came last Monday
and stayed with us till Wednesday.  It was a
good visit.  We took a few pictures of him.  He
is growing so freaking fast.  He’s 15 soon to
be 16 next month.  Yep,  he was born almost
a month before Judy and I were married 🙂
Anyways,  that’s about all I’ve got for you
to ramble about LOL.  So I guess it’s time
for me to be telling you what I tell you every
week and that is I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with
an added 3 which ups the total to 13 and
no I do not believe in that being bad luck 🙂
If that were the case,  I feel sorry for all of
the 13 year olds out there hehehe.  Oh an yes
I also wrote 22 haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2
of either or both that you like.  I reckon
now 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, now where is that off switch hiding this
week?  Hmmmm,  LOL I think I see some
movement from within my batteries that
I have in the package they came in.  Yep,
it’s hiding in there.  Hahaha a little cramped
in there wasn’t it LOL!   Better luck next time.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S.  One of the poems is a birthday
poem that I wrote for my granddaugter
Sami 🙂

P.S  A link to our brand new books

10+3 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Another Way

Among a time
a choice is found,
another way
to get around.
It might seem
to turn and twist,
something that
you can’t resist.
But then one day
the path might be
another way
for you to see.
A scenic route,
a dusty road
might display
your times abode.
A time and place
to find your cue,
another way
a better you.

Two Ducks

As shallow waters
show their sign
a little image
comes to mind.
Some birds within
a water’s way,
two ducks seen
another day.
Within their view
is such a scene
that creates
a wondrous dream.
This is a moment
a time divine
that can unleash
inside your mind.
A place created
as two ducks swim
that helps peaceful
to then begin.
It doesn’t have to
be something seen
to become found
inside of a dream.

Upon The Tracks

Rails of life
that time rolls on
might display
a time long gone.
Homebound trains
of now and then
might fall prey
to moments sin.
Leaving trails
an Earthly flow
upon the tracks
of to and fro.
People watching
wondering why
your train of time
is do or die.
For sometimes
the truth will be
that we’ve strayed
a slight degree.
Following trails
without the facts
we might find Hell
upon the tracks.

Heart That Glows
(Happy Birthday Sami)

This little girl
of moments gaze
has a heart
of wondrous ways.
She shares love
and peace to all
this heart that glows
to never fall.
She’s growing fast
as time moves on
this heart that glows
that shares a song.
It’s true passion
that drives her life
that of love
for ones with strife.
This heart that glows
is growing bolder
as today
she’s a little older.

Tons of love
from Grandma and Grandpa

A Little Light

The light of life
displays a place
a moment’s time
a smiling face.
A simple time
a day a week
a little light
of time to seek.
A memory
of days gone by
becomes a sight
of times reply.
A little light
becomes a lot,
special scenes
that time forgot.
Yet a photo
brings to life
a little light
to help survive.
A time and place
a memory
a special time
in history.
A little glimmer
a little glow
a little light
will surely show.
Beyond the days
that passed us by
lives a time
we can’t deny.
A special time
of way back when
a little light
that did begin.
That memory
of times delight
started with
a little light.

Castle Of Love

The castle walls
a timeless view
prepares a gaze
for me and you.
The walls may seem
too high to climb
the castle of love
that’s so divine.
Heartbeats sway
with do and doubt
a castle of love
is so devout.
Time is burning
with hope so true
for ones in love
to find the view.
Feeding a moment
with but a scene
a time and place
that seems a dream.
The castle of love
is a Heavenly place
filled with blessings
and full of grace.

Like A Flower

Time’s a status
built with love
as it flutters
like a dove.
Like a flower
love will bloom
bringing hearts
in time attune.
Life’s an essence
like a rose
seen as beauty
time bestows.
As a pageant
heart’s will be
seen to blossom
true and free.
Yet so many
will be found
like a flower
with a frown.
Not with blooms,
but petals fell
leaving tracks
of pain’s detail.
Like a photo
time can bloom
as a moment
from cocoon.
Opening surely
to empower
Heaven’s beauty
like a flower.

Drop By Drop

Seeds of a life
come pouring down
finding threshold
on the ground.
Drop by drop
our lives may pour
as a storm cloud’s
timeless tour.
Bringing rhythms
down to dance
drop by drop
to then enhance.
We’re the drops
of now and then
seen to sometimes
face the wind.
Yet the storm clouds
times impale
might have lessons
then to tell.

Three Crows

Within our yard
and distant trees
three crows sit
in mornings breeze.
Squawking songs
of their own style,
three crows sit
with a little smile.
They’re often found
out our back door
squawking talking
like times before.
Every morning
on a summer’s day
I can hear them
squawk away.
These three crows
are said to be
a murder of the
crow degree.

Like A Wave

Sometimes life
is like a wave
crashing thrashing
day by day.
Seasons burdens
come to head
like a wave of
time’s bloodshed.
Yet the story
can grow free
giving blessings
soon the see.
Like a wave
that crashed ashore
life can be then
so much more.
Journey’s trodden
right and wrong
strength acquired
making strong.
Giving blessings
day by day
lessons from a
crashing wave.

Edge Of The Pier

Our lives might seem
too close to change
as time becomes then
oh so strange.
Yet at the edge
of tomorrow’s door
the pier can release
anew to explore.
The edge of the pier
is a scary sight
often displaying
what’s wrong and right.
The seasons of life
might seem as Hell
as time goes its way
as a deep ocean swell.
Then as exhaustion
brings forth your view
the edge of the pier
might seem really blue.
We’ve got a choice
to seek God sincere
and find the blessings
at the edge of the pier.

At The Dock

Time’s a story
to explore
as the moments
come ashore.
Life is scary,
but can be
a special time
for you to see.
At the dock
of days desires
life can be
as burning fires,
but the flames
can be of peace
as a heartbeat
to release.
Showing how
to skip a rock,
then so peaceful
at the dock.

Time Of Peace

With accusations
of worldly deeds
many are planting
a world of weeds.
Take a little breath
and breathe in air
life of a seasonal
heavenly flair.
Time of peace
is a moment to see
that can bring smiles
to you and to me.
Lose all the anger
and find peace within,
then let some hopeful
to somehow begin.
A smile from nature
a scenic embrace
a time of peace
we need not to waste.

Haiku
for Aug 12,  2017

Time’s often wasted
and minutes will tick ahead
leaving only dreams.

Amidst a moment
lives variables of choice
that could make or break.

Little known answers
create questions in our minds
filled with illusions.

Struggling for life
one might seek a breath of air
in an empty well.

Watching the night sky
takes many on a journey
through choices and dreams.

Looking for a sign
for the time to do or not,
might leave you empty.

Morning brings chances
in form of minutes counted
that many will waste.

A taste of Heaven
can sour a taste of evil
and bring forth a change.

The edge of fruitful
holds a another vision
that walks on the fence.

Without first thinking
our footsteps could land in muck
leading to despair.

The portrait of life
is one we are all writing
within our actions.

Living for moments
can cause you to not to see
the best that can be.

Now is a lifetime
that will soon be a shadow
of our memories.

Searching for truthful
might land you in a few lies
that will tarnish you.

Perception of time
is but a second believed
as minutes are gone.

Time never stands still,
because it’s always moving
within the seconds.

Lost within a dream
many will lose track of the truth
and find deception.

Flowers of springtime
that were once lost in winter
find chances to bloom.

The length of a rope
only matters when needed,
but it must be rope.

Seeking for others
that have your same desires,
might unleash a flaw.

Often our judgments
will come right back in our face
as we are then judged.

Sought from a flower
is the chance which to blossom
and become noticed.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been yet another not so eventful week
these passed few days.  Nope,  not much to
tell other than our landlord has hired a guy
to finally power wash the back of our house
and finish up on the add on in front.  It’s
already looking a whole lot better.  We’re
going to have a doggie door installed onto
the add on door so all we have to do is to
open our front door and they can go out
the doggy door 🙂  Right now we’ve gotta
open the front door and also the add on
to let them out.  It has rained the last few
days.  Temperature wise,  it hasn’t been
too bad.  Right now at 4:30 PM it’s 66 F.
I think we’re on the decline of summer 🙂
This week’s high is supposed to be in the
mid 70’s.  But that can change as anyone
knows LOL.  It looks as though our new
neighbors have gotten settled in.  Judy and
I actually prefer to not have any neighbors,
but life goes on 🙂  LOL Benny barks every
time he hears one of their vehicles come
or go.  He’s not used to having neighbors 🙂
Rocky could actually care less one way or
the other LOL.  Anyways,  next topic.  Our
old microwave finally quit on us and so we
went to Walmart and got us another one.
It’s my favorite color,  RED.  Our grandson
Christian is coming tomorrow (Monday)
to spend a few days with us.  Chance,  our
oldest grandson might be installing our
doggy door for us in the next week or so.
So as you can see,  we lead a real exciting
life LOL.  Yeppers,  real exciting Hahaha.
Nope,  most of all we do is write,  paint and
watch our TV programs hehehe.  Oh yea,
and play with our boys,  Benny and Rocky.
Of course we both take a lot of pictures
of here and there and who and what LOL.
One thing for sure,  we can always find
something to do.  Maybe not exciting 🙂
but something.  I’ve been doing a lot of
writing and already got a little over half
of what I need done for my new book 🙂
Yes I write a lot hehehe.  Like you didn’t
already know that LOL.  LOL Rocky
just came running in here to get us and
he seemed serious Hahaha.  It turns out
that Benny had accidentally dropped his
dog cookie behind the futon and Rocky
wanted it,  but Benny would growl at him
every time he tried to crawl under it to
get it.  I reached and got the cookie and
gave it to Benny.  Benny took it and this
time ate it.  Rocky already ate the doggie
cooking that we gave him LOL.  Yeppers
excitement by the truck loads hehehe 🙂
The Pearce’s Place is filled with many
blessings and God watches over us every
day.  We still have our share of bad times,
but for the most part,  life is good aside
from these old aches and pains hehehe 🙂
Thank You Lord for keeping Your mighty
Hands over us preventing anything that
we cannot handle.  Now I believe it’s
time for me to be taking a little stroll 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
found a decent title just a few lines back
that I haven’t used yet.  Of course I’ve used
part of the title,  but this will work hehehe.
Now to try and write something that makes
sense using it hehehe.  Here goes 🙂

Here And There

Jumbled scenes
we often find
paint a picture
in our mind.
Life of wonders
filled with hues
sometimes reds,
sometimes blues.
Here and there
we might see
a portion of
our history.
As pages turn
to display words
we might find
a flock of birds.
Birds as stories
flying free
in the daily
things we see.
Time will often
show despair
through emotions
here and there.
So let blessings
come alive
letting angels
jump and jive.
Let the passed days
fall away
here and there now
as you pray.

There ya go.  That’s a little view inside of
my mind hehehe.  I never know what will
come out of my head LOL.  I just let the
thoughts come out as they will.  I will often
amaze myself as I look back on all that I
have written.  Over 11 thousand poems 🙂
It’s 63 F degrees now at 6:30 PM.  The low
for tonight or actually for early tomorrow
morning is supposed to be 47 F.  Not too
bad 🙂  There’s not much else to tell you
other than what I tell you almost every
week 🙂 and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems with 4 extras from my busy mind.
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 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,  so now,  where’s that ornery
off switch hiding this time hehehehehe?
Well,  you’re getting better.  But still,
do you always need to poke your head
up every 2 seconds to see if I can see
you LOL?  No,  I think not.  Why not
try this next week,  just staying put
and letting me find you LOL.  Yes I’m
aware that if you did that I would more
than likely never finish my journal,  but
at least stay still for a few minutes LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

To Turn Back Time

Shadows of our lives
display in certain times
as we each remember
those seasonal designs.
Turning back the clock
will not show so true
times of way back when
that were the daily view.
We tend to let the minutes
to become just history
then we will be finding
a distant memory.
Photos that encompass
the life and times before
and then to turn back time
would not unlock that door.
We cannot turn back time
to when we now remember,
because that time is gone
and just a burning ember.
Now might be of beauty,
but then may seem to shine.
Yet the lessons learned then
will leave to turn back time.

The Bench Of Time

Now might seem
to pass you by
as you sit
and wonder why.
The bench of time
is there each day
to hear you when
you stop to pray.
It waits each day
and wonders when
that you’ll come by
to sit again.
Time might seem
to be a race
leaving signs
upon your face.
Let yourself
to somehow find
some peace upon
the bench of time.

Journey Of the Mind

Standing in the waves
I took on many thoughts
a journey of the mind
that at times was really lost.
The minutes seemed endless
as the journey continued on
while standing in the waves
and humming a little song.
My mindset was of peace
as waves rolled in and out
displaying their own grace
an ocean without doubt.
I splashed within the waters
as waves then spoke to me
telling me of journeys
within the deep blue sea.
I sought to see a vessel
far out in the sea of blue
but I only saw then
this journey in my view.
It was a magical moment
I found in summertime
while strolling in the waves
on a journey of the mind.

On The Shore

Seasons in the sun
are seen as time to time
while a photo displays
a scene within the mind.
On the shore so scenic
I found myself alive
viewing all God’s treasures
that help us to survive.
Life is just a moment,
a passing time to see
on the shore of minutes
that all were given free.
God gave many blessings
to live and to adore,
yet we will so often
be seen just wanting more.
Let your daily journey
to find a moment’s peace
on the shore of Heaven
that Lord God gives release.

Tiny River

In a dream
a sight might be
a tiny river
so fancy free.
Flowing as a
rushing heart
finding peace
a work of art.
Tiny river
as our mind
seeks direction
life to find.
We are waters
rushing true
a tiny river
thereunto.
Many blessings
often flow
as a river
tiny though.
Yet the blessings
are not small,
for they conquer
largest wall.

A Little Walk

When troubles come
take a little walk
find peace with God
have a little talk.
Some peace will come
with every step
as time displays
where peace is kept.
Take a little walk
through natures life
and let it flourish
joy not strife.
Lose the emotions
that followed you
through a little walk
to a peaceful view.
Even if the walk
is just in your mind
take a little walk
and peace you’ll find.

As Time Begins

Just like a dream
a minute begins
turning the pages
of a camera lens.
Moments recorded
that we now recall
become as a lifetime
that now stands tall.
As life begins
it blows like a breeze
a seasonal dance
of grasses and trees.
They might seem faint
the remembered times
the ages of pages
that were so divine.
But life can be found
in a camera lens
the best of the days
as time begins.

A Moment Comes Alive

Living in a moment
creates a certain view
maybe of a doorway
swinging there and to.
Maybe of a park bench,
a scene beside the sea
or a time of splendor
within our history.
A moment comes alive
as a photo time partakes
turning into artwork
of which a minute makes.
Time is but a porthole
of synchronicity
stages of our lifestyles
that seem the same to see.
Minutes become as hours
of which we all survive
seeking for the minutes
that a moment comes alive.

Seen on autumn days
are colors all compiled
as a scenic story,
a painting all run wild.
Colored found emotions
gathered then as seas
across an autumn bridge
as brightly colored leaves.
Now it’s just a memoir,
a simple picture view,
but it’s just an echo
of what will soon be true.
Another moment gathers
to insert with a smile
a time and place of wonder
that colors do compile.
Then the memories
will come to life again
an autumn bridge of time
for you to find therein.
Life will become pages
found in autumns book
giving then another
autumn bridge to look.

Heaven Is A Place

Bewildered emotions
will often steal smiles
as our perceptions
get lost many miles.
A scene so perplexing
that becomes our view
needs a little prayer
to find breath anew.
Sometimes a moment
a bird walking by
will give a little peace
with time to comply.
Following the images
of footprints in sand
can bring into view
a good place to stand.
Heaven is a place
that thrives to bestow
peace and tranquillity
to help us to grow.
As footprints in sand
a moment does release
time within time
to find a little peace.
A scene that awakens
a place to unwind
and fill you with love
and much more to find.
Heaven is a place
that is love so grand,
filled with God’s angels
to help us withstand.

A Time Reminds

One winter’s day
I found a place,
a moment’s time,
a snowy taste.
It was a scene
that came alive,
a moment’s time
to then survive.
A snowy scene,
a wondrous view,
a time reminds,
a whitish hue.
I stood real still
to photograph
this fine time
of now the past.
So many times
I’ve moved along
finding days
to then be gone.
We all have
those special finds,
a time to gaze,
a time reminds.

Passing Thoughts

Life is often
like the winds
blowing briskly
time transcends.
Feeling sadness
death displays
passing thoughts
of yesterdays.
Now’s a threshold
seen and said
as time’s passing
straight ahead.
Lose the sadness
within you.
See what joy
that can accrue.
Passing thoughts
of here and there
need at times
a little prayer.
For what all
that passed you by
might have reasons
how and why.

Bridge Of Dreams

Crossing over
footsteps made
brings so many
places laid.
Bridge of dreams
is scented true
with a wondrous
seasons view.
As remembered
heartbeats beat
often in the
living heat.
Bridge of dreams
becomes a day
in a moment
times display.
Found as feathers
in the wind
bridge of dreams
will never end.

Season’s Request

Found in life
is a time to see
a picture portion
that God gave free.
Scenes of beauty
now remembered
that of a time frame
Heaven delivered.
It’s a moment
that lives within
found in heartbeats
of now and then.
It’s now a dream
to help you to rest
a time you recall
a season’s request.

Haiku
for Aug 5,  2017

Peace is in silence
which also thrives confusion
for what we can’t hear.

A look in the past
can bring to life mysteries
that now you wonder.

We are like flowers
as we bloom when we’re watered
and wither when dry.

Life is a spaceship
that flies to destinations
that might surprise us.

Love of a moment
might decrease as time is passed
due to new moments.

A shower of rain
is but ones situation
that is good or bad.

Ill gotten knowledge
can become poison of life
that comes back to haunt.

Blades of summer grass
know their end is getting near
as fall approaches.

Within summer’s night
there lives an owl of voices
which hoots many words.

Thunderstorms of life
are often just our teachers
that have a loud voice.

A gentle breeze blows
to give relief from summer
and fill us with peace.

Lost in emotion
could thrive so many choices
that might be real bad.

A shadow in time
might be our future worries
that right now perceives.

When in a hurry
life might pass by too quickly
with nothing good seen.

Trees in a forest
might just speak to other trees,
for they understand.

Flowers seeking life
put their gaze into the sky
for sunshine and rain.

As morning begins
it brings chances for new life
filled with new choices.

Lights that are shining
at the end of a tunnel
might be a warning.

Various doorways
will hide their truth within them
to show when you’re hooked.

The patterns of clouds
can display things imagined
through our perspective.

Thriving circumstance
brings to life many bad calls
with lack of knowledge.

Forever’s journey
is a pathway in the stars
that can’t be counted.

Not Too Bad

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a decent passed week.  The weather
has been staying on an even stride.  It hasn’t
gotten too hot.  But then we haven’t gotten as
much rain as we normally do at this time of
year.  Right now at 5:PM it’s 77 F degrees and
sunny.  Our new neighbors have been having a
lot of company.  Their swimming pool has been
used every day LOL even though the water is
just a tad cold.  The guy told me,  the kids don’t
care how cold it is LOL.  He said it’s too cold
for him hehehe.  What else is going on around
here?  Well,  last Monday we went to town to
do some shopping and of course I did as always,
I took pictures there and back LOL.  I took a
little selfie of me Monday for a friend of mine
and I posted it on Facebook LOL.  Wednesday,
Judy went down to Bangor with her sister Barb
for Barbs doctor appointment and to see their
brother Ricky.  Me and the boys as usual just
hung together and entertained one another 🙂
Of course they after a while had just parked
themselves in the living room to wait for Judy
to come home.  I spent much of the time just
sitting in here writing.  I’ve already written 69
poetry pictures for book 5 hehehe.  I’m over
a 3rd of the way done 🙂  Thursday we had a
visit from our oldest grandson Chance.  It was
great seeing him.  Of course now,  he lives just
down the road from us hehehe.  Anyways,  Judy
took a few pictures of him and me sitting on
the futon.  I remember when he was just a little
tike.  He was only maybe 5 years old hehehe.
Now he’s 21.  Boy the years have passed LOL.
Friday Judy and I went back to Walmart to get
a few things to last us till we get paid,  but it’s
looking like we might have to go again due to
a few things we failed to get LOL.  Ain’t that
the way it always goes hehehe.  Saturday we
took the boys out for a little field trip in front
of our house.  They always love to do that 🙂
but getting them to go back to the house is
sometimes a chore.  But then all we have to
do is holler,  ya wanna a treat,  or food and
that usually gets them headed back home 🙂
We always get a few good pictures of the boys
and us out in the field.  It was a beautiful day.
So you see,  not much goes on around here.
Judy has been doing her magnificent paintings
and I have been busy writing my semi sort of
magnificent poems LOL.  Yeppers,  not much
going on around The Pearce’s Place.  Life
in the not so fast lane hehehe.  Time is just
a number around here,  for the days all seem
to sort of look the same.  It’s 6:30 now and
75 F degrees.  Not too bad.  It’s begun cooling
off a bit.  It should be in the 50’s by tonight.
This house is still watched over by God and
many angels.  We have a few daily struggles,
but with God’s help and the many angels we
are able to find blessings.  So,  I reckon it’s
time to begin my little journey back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can find
a word or phrase that I can use for the title
for today’s brand new poem.  So,  it’s away
I go,  to that place of my recollection that I
always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE 🙂
It looks like I may have stumbled upon a
fairly decent title just a few lines back in all
of my rambling and now after checking I see
that it has not been used yet,  so used it shall
be LOL.  Here goes…..

Not Too Bad

Through our doorways
time might show
ways confusions
which to go.
Scenes might display
happy and sad
but in time be
not too bad.
Through our lifestyles
pages turn
bringing pathways
to discern.
Our momentum
fast and slow
might confuse us
high and low.
Yet the footsteps
that we’ve had
might find one day
not too bad.

So there ya go,  I hope you like the poem and
maybe even all of my rambling.  I don’t think
I’ve forgotten to tell you anything about our
passed week.  LOL there was not that much to
tell hehehe.  So,  I guess it’s time for me to tell
you what I tell you almost every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yep
10 more poems with an extra 4 which ups the
count to 14.  Also 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’s
left of it and a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  So Ok now 🙂
where is that confounded off switch hiding at
this week?  LOL I guess hiding is putting too
much of an emphasis on hiding,  being it’s
not that great at hiding hehehehehehehehe.
Oh for Heaven sake,  couldn’t you even find
a place that was not right freaking in front of
me?  Sheesh,  hiding behind my teeny weenie,
itsy-bitsy flash drive that is right  in front of
me LOL.  Yep,  there ya are as plain as the
nose on my face hehehe.  Try harder next time.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Million Dollar View

Life is a blessing
no matter the sight
scenes with rhythms
daytime and night.
A page from a story
is read with the eyes
a million dollar view
of sweet scenic skies.
The cover of the book
might not seem great,
but found within it
is a time to elate.
Words of a billow
as the hills will roll
a million dollar view
is a wonderful goal.
Displaying blessings
of God’s Own delight
the scenes come alive
displaying such a sight.
Blessings from Heaven
that show waters blue
are the pages to read
a million dollar view.

A Little Stroll

Those times of life
that now display
as my shadows
of a day
are scenes of life
and true memoirs
that then at times
was best of ours.
Yet those scenes
that I remember
are the times
a burning ember.
Just like pages
of a magazine
a little stroll
is surely seen.
Special moments
a time ago
a picture of
a little stroll.

The Heron

Within the waters
ocean quest
a bird displays
its very best.
Searching through
the waters waves
seeking food
on summer’s days.
The heron sifts
through waters blue
as the waves
go there and to.
A scenic sight
for ones to see
is the heron
of the sea.
It lives and breathes
with fish and more
as it searches
along the shore.
It might fly
to distant scenes
and continue
with its means.
The heron lives
another day
sometimes near
an ocean bay.
The heron’s also
another name
called an egret,
still the same.

Birds In Flight

Life is like
a moment’s flight
seen by day
and also night.
We’re as birds
with wings of ways
flying high
in Earthly phase.
Birds in flight
as sudden dreams
feathers flapping
in the scenes.
We’re as minutes
high and low
birds in flight
each way we go.
Seasons passing
bring in view
a sky of sights
as seas of blue.
Time is altered
with our strives
birds in flight
our daily lives.

Toronto Dreams

Landscape of life,
a skyline of scenes
finds the very essence
of Toronto dreams.
Maybe as a painting
or a picture to see,
Toronto has a view
that enlightens me.
As Lake Ontario
waters will glimmer
Toronto dreams will
begin to shimmer.
Bringing into view
the wondrous detail
of birds in the sky
with wings set sail.
You may not of seen
this place in time
found in Toronto
a scene so divine.
Yet you can fantasize
this wonderful place
of Toronto Dreams
with waters enlace.

In The Woods

Trees of burden
bring to view
sights of stories
me and you.
We’re the forest
times unfold
in the woods
our stories told.
Life’s a moment
shadows cast
in the woods
a moment passed.
Scenes around us
might become
in the woods
a setting sun.
We’re but wording
written ink
in the woods
of how we think.
Thoughts emotions
understood
are the lifestyles
in the woods.

Time Stands Still

Thoughts of stillness
will come alive
as our lifestyles
surely thrive.
Time stands still
within a frame
a timely moment
life’s attained.
Seasons grandeur
shines the best
as a seagull
found at rest.
It’s our decisions
that put in place
the timely manners
seasons taste.
Time stands still
with signs of life
found as glimmers
seasons thrive.
It’s the choices
that ones conceal
that make or break
as time stands still.

Cloudy Thoughts

Times envisioned
life that’s lost
finds directions
cloudy thoughts.
Scenes recorded
within the mind
find expressions
for life to find.
Cloudy thoughts
are often clues
seen as doorways
time should use.
Yet our thinking
might fall prey
to emotions
of yesterday.
Let life become
as it should be,
lessons learned
from history.
Don’t let fear to
be your boss.
Lessons come from
cloudy thoughts.

As A Sailboat

Time’s an ocean
winds that blow
helping sailboats
with their flow.
This is patterns
of our lives
time’s an ocean
ripples strive.
Waves display as
journey’s mile
as a sailboat
seeks the while.
Timeless moments
find a way
to sail across
another day.
As a sailboat
seas of blue
we are journeys
life anew.

Life As Water

Like a faucet
many pour
life and times
a scenic tour.
Yet some people
only find
life as water
on their mind.
Seen as ripples
maybe waves
as they journey
in their ways.
Pouring ideals
on ones sight
not allowing
others light.
Life as water
splashes true
things of me
and things of you.

Alone With Thoughts

Sat in a field
is a point and time
a scene so serene
of Heaven’s design
is a personal peace
where anger is lost
found in a time
alone with thoughts.
It could be a place
of anyone’s heart
found within time
for peaceful to start.
Alone with thoughts
is a poetic place
a time so divine
with smiles to enlace.
So sit in a field
of a harmonic motion
alone with thoughts
within Heaven’s ocean.
Seek for the joy
that once was lost
as you find peace
alone with thoughts.

Peace Is Just Perception

Time is but a mirror
reflecting sights we see
found in our perception
the scenes our eyes agree.
Peace is just a moment
that comes and goes away
leaving but only echoes
perceived in our own way.
Life is found reworded
the way ones wish to see
as with their perception
is what they wish to be.
We’re just like the ocean
with waves that crash ashore
bringing our perception
through a swinging door.
Scenes are found as beauty
while some are found not so
as we perceive our journeys
the only way we know.
Peace is just perception
of how things look to you
so take the time to clearly
see what’s really true.
Look within the journeys
and see what lives inside
then find the peace within it
to try to coincide.
Often it’s our egos
that cut us like a knife,
for peace is just perception
of how we live our life.

Morning Awakens

Strove as a moment
sought as a sight
morning awakens
to display its light.
Time might be failure
and life might be gray,
but morning awakens
to show a new day.
Lessons are gathered
with seasons of time
as morning awakens
to show what to find.
Peace is a portion
awaiting our view
as morning awakens
with each day anew.
Yet we are often
found looking awry
as morning awakens
with clouds in our sky.
Find then within you
the spirit of love
as morning awakens
from Heaven above.

Surreal’s A Breath

Our lives remembered
as heartbeats sway
are sometimes dreams
of a wanted array.
A simple little breath
of a time long ago
finds you remembering
the thoughts that grow.
Seasons so surreal
are blessings in time
a page from a journal
that’s now so divine.
Surreal’s a breath,
a field of grass green
as puppy dogs dance
while creating a scene.
A time of an essence
with wonderful style,
surreal’s a breath
that gives us a smile.

Haiku
for July 29,  2017

Heaven is a door
that is opened with a heart
displayed by pure love.

Life filled with passion
gives way to a decision
to choose what that’s right.

Morsels of sweetness
can become sour emotions
if they’re filled with lies.

Time is a journey
that some only find sadness
due to decisions.

Life is like haiku
as the seasons show blessings
in words of decor.

Legions of people
get lost in a liars quest
and cause others Hell.

Storms of emotions
find their place in a rain cloud
that might have rainbows.

As summer gives way
autumn is right behind it
to welcome winter.

A murder of time
shouts out loud sounds of summer
as crows will gather.

Seasons of grandeur
brings forth many perceptions
that ones might not see.

Love is a flower
that will bloom when it’s watered
or die from the heat.

When time awakens
it unleashes many thoughts
for us to choose from.

With spring in your step
you can bounce over problems
but still find troubles.

Tomorrows lifestyle
might be like a reflection
that’s gone distorted.

Fields of discontent
can infect a continent
so seek true guidance.

Lessons of a rose
are that of seasonal flare
that will weather time.

Among so many
are the different values
that tear us apart.

The lives of many
rely on the lives of the few
that might not be right.

Now is a doorway
that yesterday created
to show tomorrow.

Enhancing lifestyles
can uncover misery
that they have hidden.

Beyond what we see
are things ones sight can’t follow
due to none belief.

Cherishing our things
can become baggage of life
if we can’t let go.

We Must Endure

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How’s life been treating you?  It’s not been
too bad up this ways.  It got a little warm a
few days last week,  but it’s begun cooling a
bit.  Yesterdays high was 72 the same as it is
today.  It’s supposed to be in the 70’s most
of the week with maybe a day or two near
80.  LOL last night it got down to 39 F and
I had to shut the windows.  Yep,  it looks as
though summer is already bidding its adieu.
OK maybe not where you are,  but up here
it seems to be in its last days.  The warmest
month of summer up here is July.  Right now
at 5 PM it’s 70 F degrees.  Tomorrow’s high
is supposed to be 73 F.  Anyways,  it’s partly
cloudy skies today.  Next topic.  Our new
neighbors have been busy moving in.  They
have put up a large above ground swimming
pool.  LOL I wonder if they’re aware of the
winters we have?  It’s going to be seeing a
lot of ice and snow this winter hehehe.  We
shall see.  Not our problem 🙂  So,  what else
is there to talk about?  Well,  Judy and I
took a long scenic picture taking drive down
to the coast Wednesday and we got a lot
of great pictures there and to.  We stopped
off at many different landmarks and got
out and took pictures.  The boys went with
us 🙂  I think they enjoyed it.  They both
love to ride in the car.  We would stop at
the rest areas and wherever we saw a good
place to let them out on leash so they could
run around and go potty as well as to just
take in the sights for themselves 🙂  It was
a good 10 hour drive there and back home.
5 hours one way 🙂  So both Judy and I were
pretty pooped after all of that.  I think my
legs were put to the test and they lost LOL.
I walked more than I have in a long while.
It took me a couple of days to recoup.  Judy
didn’t walk quite as much as I did.  Thank
God 🙂  I don’t believe she would of made
it back up from the pier.  It was down hill
going there,  but an up hill climb back to
the car.  So what else has gone on around
The Pearce’s Place?  Well,  to be honest
it’s been sort of quiet aside from all of the
noise coming from the neighbors as they
come and go.  Judy had a craft night last
night (Saturday) and she made a duck tape
clutch purse hehehe.  She’s still been doing
a lot of painting.  I’ve already got a 3rd of
the poetry pictures written for book 5 LOL.
Yes I write a lot.  Although if you’ve been
receiving this news letter for a while,  you
should know that by now LOL.  Aren’t we
exciting hehehe.  Nope,  just typical old
folks enjoying life as best that we’re able.
These 2 boys of ours keep us entertained.
God is still watching over us protecting us
from evils of life.  Of course there are a
few things we must endure being we are
human and troubles in life help to make
us stronger.  So thank God for the things
that make you stronger.  Of course you
might not be aware of the things,  so be
grateful for all that life has given you as
the lessons grow and you become stronger.
Now,  I believe it’s time for me to begin
my little journey back through all that I
have written here to see if I can find me a
good word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem.  So,  it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  Hmm.  it looks like I may have
found a decent title just a few lines back
and now after checking I see that I have
not used it as of yet,  so used it shall be.
Here goes……

We Must Endure

While in a window
of torment and pain
we must endure
the moments of rain.
Scenes might encompass
some dark clouds amiss,
but lessons are displayed
within all of this.
We must endure
all the days that arrive
and change what we can
with each day alive.
God is still watching
and waiting each day
to see us endure
as we each kneel and pray.
Time gives a portion
of a scenery tour
goodness and misery
that we must endure.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem and
maybe even understood it.  Also I hope that
you enjoyed my rambling and it entertained
you for a while hehehe.  I don’t think there’s
anything else news worthy to tell you.  It’s all
been pretty much said.  There’s not much on
TV to watch today so I reckon we’ll be doing
our thing such as writing and painting.  Me
with my writing and Judy with her painting,
but here lately she’s been doing a little writing
too.  So that’s about all there is to tell you 🙂
of course 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 extras.  Nope no Christmas poetry
this week 🙂  Maybe next week.  I also wrote
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either
or both that you like.  Now I believe it’s time
for me to begin my search for that hardly
elusive off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend or whatever’s left
of it and a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,  where
is that ornery off switch attempting to hide
this week?  Hmm,  LOL I think I see him
behind the Bubble Fun bottles right beside
the bubble blower that I bought to entertain
the boys hehehehe.  Yep,  there ya are you
silly.  Try a little harder next time will ya.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Simple Things

Life is short
as time will pass
minutes gather
way too fast.
Times we’ve seen
and looked around
show our shadows
on the ground.
For the journey
that we took
simple things
have lost their look.
The simple things
of life’s accord
might now be
the past’s reward.
Time’s we’ve hurried
passed some scenes
we might now miss
the simple things.

It Still Exists

Walls awakened
life is there
breathing essence
times aware.
It still exists
for life moves on
timeless days
another dawn.
Even the glimmers
of early designs
still in existence
a moment defines.
The walls of time
hold many faces
which still exists
as certain traces.
Time lives on
as moments mist
breathing memoirs
it still exists.

Finding Peace

Life’s a pathway
day and night
many wrong ways
many right.
Scenes discovered
might fall prey
to the minds
of yesterday.
Finding peace
is often hard
within your own
times front yard.
Yet the doorways
swinging true
giving pathways
different view.
To see some signs
of pains decrease
God gives help
for finding peace.

Behold The View

A storm becomes
the only scene
when we’re looking
for a dream.
It is our wants
that often lie
to misinterpret
times gone by.
Behold the view
the truth to see
the things in life
you’ve just set free.
We often gaze
on passed the best
while we’re seeking
east and west.
Behold the view
of now and then
and let the truth
then enter in.
Don’t let the good
to bid adieu.
Look more close
behold the view.

Life Passes By

As we breathe
we lose a breath
a certain time
of life and death.
Life passes by
as wheels will roll
time’s then seen
an alternate goal.
In our journeys
time might be
a life of wanting
new to see.
Yet the old
of which we view
is really growing
very new.
So the ventures
wheels of time
might just need
a new design.
The olden stage
of different days
might still hold
some helpful ways.
Learning lessons
from the past
can make better
shadows cast.
Time then shows
new ways to fly
things we’ve learned
as life passes by.

A Calming Day

Within a view
the tide is seen
a moment’s past
a certain dream.
Boats will float
amidst the frame
a moment’s time
to then attain.
A calming day
with little scorn
is found within
a new day born.
A scenic sight
of which to view
brings a chance
for life anew.
An ocean scene
with skies array
is such a sight
a calming day.

Walk Of Peace

On days of strife
take hold the reins
and find the peace
that’s within change.
Take a little walk
outside of your view
and find the peace
to live within you.
A walk of peace
a journey to see
a change in the days
with mind set free.
Look for answers
beyond the waves
with a walk of peace
to much better days.
Search for blessings
that you have missed
which may be a river
to turn and twist.
Look in the ripples
of your days accord,
have a walk of peace
with Jesus our Lord.

Rushing Minds

Life’s a passage
rivers flow
times we’ve counted
high and low.
In the essence
life exist
timeless portals
in the mist.
Rushing minds then
find a phrase
ticking seconds
in the days.
Flowing rivers
found within
time is essence
start to end.
In the shadows
of our times
many find their
rushing minds.

Fishing For Time

When waters flow
in your life of times
seek for the moments
of wonderful signs.
Reach out your hands
to grab a hold tight
the waters of dreams
in life’s moments light.
Fishing for time
in a stream of days
might become empty
with fish just a phase.
Let not the waters to
rush passed your look
while fishing for time
with an un baited hook.
Let all the lessons
of a moment’s design
teach you perspective
while fishing for time.

Enjoying Life

Let all the sadness
to just melt away
and leave but only
the best of today.
Time is a portal
that we look through
minutes and hours
from old to anew.
Find some peaceful
within your memories
and then enjoy them
as oceans and seas.
Remember a time
in a field of green
or some other time
of which you’ve seen.
Look for the beauty
that’s lesser of strife
and then you’ll find
you’re enjoying life.

Roads We Go Down

Our lives might seem
an endless road
with life of times
a heavy load,
but paths might be
just misunderstood
roads we go down
from bad to good.
The scenes we see
might become faint
as earthly tones
with weathered paint.
The seasons change
with wheels of life
as time rolls on
with wrong and right.
We have a choice
to smile or frown,
but time rolls on
roads we go down.

Searching Scenes

Moments blissful
certain days
life is portioned
for a gaze.
Searching scenes
of times detail
brings us to
a life set sail.
Times we recall,
sights we’ve seen
become as our
wanted dreams.
As our journals
times fulfilled
burning embers
are instilled.
Searching scenes
we value best
brings us to
a place of rest.
Found as portions
true to see
searching scenes
of history.

Haiku
for July 22,  2017

Without a moment
our decisions are stagnant,
for time needs a place.

Through opened doorways
lies chances for right or wrong,
we should choose wisely.

The seams of our lives
are as threads time’s united
to bring us to one.

Beyond time and space
is a venture of the mind
that needs perspective.

Looking for flowers
might hide the most beautiful
behind what you see.

Shadows of ourselves
live as things ones remember
so take heed your life.

As a ticking clock
the hands of time continue
even when we’re gone.

The ways ones believe
creates a doorway of life
that ones don’t agree.

Harboring hanger
will cause a fuse to be lit
for an explosion.

Life in the fast lane
can burn up your fuel for life
before you know it.

Longwinded people
tend to lose themselves in words
that were not needed.

Lost in illusion
moments can become nightmares
when you’ve awoken.

The glamour of life
viewed from others perspectives
might be just a lie.

Challenging others
to what you are not sure of
proves your ignorance.

The beauty of time
is that of many chances
that we throw away.

Patience is waiting
for the right moment in time
and not just waiting.

A journey of miles
can become eternity
as life seems endless.

Looking too closely
you might miss all the beauty
seen from a distance.

Climbing a mountain
can be like a life’s journey
that wears on the mind.

Mindset of stubborn
holds a wall in place of life
that crashes in time.

Grasses of summer
grow as groundskeepers nightmares
that continue on.

Pointless is hatred
when it only makes you sick
and poisons your heart.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a sort of warm passed few days,
but still,  not too bad.  It’s raining off and
on right now.  The high for today is 82 F.
Right now though,  it’s 76 F at 3:30 PM 🙂
So aside from all of that,  today is pretty
nice.  Today is the boys birthday.  Yep the
boys are another year older.  Of course we
are not sure of the actually date that Rocky
was born,  but we know Benny’s.  He was
born July 16, 2011.  We assume that Rocky
was no more than 1 year old when we got
him,  so we just gave him Benny’s birthday
being we picked him up from the airport
on Benny’s birthday July 16 2015.  Rocky
was Benny’s birthday present in a way 🙂
They have become the best of buddies and
they look out for one another.  LOL you
can’t hold one without the other wanting
to be held.  If we sit on the recliner or the
futon,  they will both hop up on either side
of us.  Yep,  we’ve got some good boys and
Milo was one of them.  Next subject.  We’re
done with Rocky’s meds for when he got
sick.  He took the last of them yesterday.
LOL I put down his food today and he
looked up at me as if to say,  hey daddy.
something’s missing.  I guess he acquired
a taste for the pills and powder hehehehe.
Anyways,  he sniffed it a few times and
then proceeded in gobbling his food up 🙂
Benny fished his own and then came to
clean Rocky’s bowl for him,  but there
wasn’t anything left aside from the taste
on the bowl Hahaha.  Rocky pretty much
cleaned it up 🙂  They are both some tired
boys being every time I got up to go to
the bathroom,  they would be watching
me.  I guess they felt they needed to keep
an eye on me.  My health has been a bit
rocky here lately,  but all in all,  I am still
alive and good for another day hehehe.
I’ve been writing more picture poems 🙂
It looks as though I may have book 5
in the next few months LOL.  I have no
clue to how I stumbled upon this gift,
but it is one that God gave me, and so
I do my best to use it.  Judy has been
doing a lot of painting and she has even
bought back the rights to her first book
titled Hello My Name Is Benny and she
has republished it at a lower price than
the company that published before.  They
had it priced at $24.99 dollars,  and Judy
has it priced at $9.99 along with her other
children’s book The Adventures of Benny
and Milo.  Anyways,  she now is getting
ready to publish a book along with our
grandson Christian that will have poetry
in it.  It will be called Look Up.  So you
see,  we are a bunch of busy little beavers
over here LOL.  The Pearce’s Place has
turned into a regular writing force LOL.
So what else has gone on around this place?
Well Judy had a doctor’s appointment on
Tuesday and afterwards we went to the
Houlton Farms Dairy Bar and got us some
ice cream 🙂  It was a beautiful day for
ice cream LOL.  Then Thursday we went
to Pizza Hut and got us a couple of pizzas
to feed us for a couple of days hehehe 🙂
Then Friday, Judy’s daughter brought
Rylee our granddaughter over and we
had a great visit.  It was Rylee’s birthday
and she turned 10 on the 13th.  Judy gave
her a copy of her newest children’s book.
It was Judy’s proof copy,  but Rylee did
not mind 🙂  She was sitting on the futon
reading it and I took a few pictures of
her having fun with her book.  After they
left,  Judy and I took a drive to town to
do a little shopping.  So,  you see,  it’s
not too exciting over here hehehe.  Just
enough for Judy and I LOL.  This week
looks to be even less exciting hehehe.  No
plans except maybe to take some pictures.
Yep,  we might take a drive 1 day this
week to take some pictures,  but still not
sure when or where to go.  We’ll get r dun.
So,  it looks like God is still watching over
us as the days pass us by.  Yes we have a
few bumps in the road and challenges to
overcome,  but together with God and
the angels watching over us,  we will be
OK.  So I guess it’s time for me to take
my little journey back through all that I
have written here to see if I can find me
a good word or phrase that I can use for
the title for today’s brand new poem 🙂
And so it’s away I go to that little place
of my recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  It looks like
I may have found a decent title to use
and now after checking I see that I have
not used it yet,  so used it shall be 🙂
Here goes nothing,  though I hope not 🙂

Take A drive

Times and places
find our glance
when we give our
lives a chance.
Take a drive through
now and then
and find lifestyles
to begin.
See the choices
time displays
that can become
better days.
Take a drive now
see the sights.
Find momentum
days and nights.
Let God guide you
to survive
as you live to
take a drive.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and you
maybe even liked the poem LOL.  If you
understood the poem,  then that’s a plus 🙂
There’s not much else to tell you.  I think
I’ve told you all there is to tell about our
passed week and plans for this week.  So,
I guess it’s time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and that
is I wrote some more poems and haiku 🙂
Yeppers,  10 more poems with an add 4 to
bring the count up to 14. 1 of the poems is
a Christmas poem.  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.  LOL I just snuck into the
living room and got a picture of the boys.
Benny on his favorite recliner and Rocky
on the futon.  I opened the window and
turned on the fan for them so they would
be a little cooler.  With that said 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 awesome
week.  Remember Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now where’s that silly off
switch hiding this week?  Hmmmmmm,
I think I may have seen some movement
from behind my nose spray.  LOL talk
about a bad hiding spot Hahaha.  Plus,
you can’t even stay still for a second
without peeking to see if I can see you 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Winter’s Decor

A passing day
of cold snowy white
becomes as a scene
that many delight.
With winter’s decor
in a wonderful way
creating a picture
of night unto day.
The scene’s of stillness
painted with snow
joined with the essence
as winter winds blow.
With winter’s decor
is a taste of a time
that is a blessing
for many to find.
Life is a portion
time to explore
as seasons come alive
with winter’s decor.

Going Home

A scene by the sea
that is home by the way
displays such a time
of a so distant day.
A home bound journey
just walking a while
going home surely
with a great big smile.
The condo awaits us
as we leave the sea
when we’re going home
to when used to be.
This is a memory
a time in detail
of us going home
down this little dirt trail.
The summery season
becomes such a sight
when we’re going home
in evenings delight.

Just Like A Dream

Fantastic scenery
times that displayed
are often a dreamworld
so heavenly laid.
Times we’ve imagined
that brought us a view
stirred up emotions
to drink of life’s stew.
Sometimes our minutes
might seem as a day
and then in the moments
just fade fast away.
Yes just like a dream
many things that we see,
become as our visions
that we brought to be.
Allowing our lifestyles
to become as a scene
found as a blessing
just like a dream.

Life Is An Ocean

Waves we encounter
bring forth a view
times for embracing
the things we do.
We’re like the waves
that crash on a shore
making our markings
upon the Earth’s floor.
Our seasons arrive
as waves that will roll
while paying the piper
for oceans of goal.
Written as lifestyles
we’ve put in motion
time is of essence
life is an ocean.

Evening’s Memory

Time has passed
and left in view
a time so sweet
of ocean blue.
Evening’s memory
comes unto me
a time I find
now wished to see.
We each have scenes
of life’s desire
evening’s memory
passions fire.
The memories are
the times we found
a scene we saw
of sight and sound.
A simple taste
is still alive
within your days
as heartbeats thrive.
Evening’s memory
will come in view
each time you dream
of a time so true.

Sky’s Reminder

Drifting scenes
of gray and white
display signs
of times delight.
The sky’s reminder
comes alive
a time we’ve seen
as minutes drive.
Across the sky
the scenes display
the passion of
a Godly play.
A simple scene
yet so detailed
the sky’s reminder
of life entailed.
The seconds pass
creating time
as clouds pass by
with each design.
Formed as dreams
of times display
burning bright as
light of day.
Then the night sky
becomes seen
the sky’s reminder
as a dream.
The sky transforms
into a view
the sky’s reminder
for me and you.

Peace Awakens

Found are seasons
in the waves
life that comes
from distant days.
Peace awakens
such a sight
when we learn
to do what’s right.
The stage is set
when time’s begun
to bring us peace
in seasons sun.
Found are moments
counted trails
footprints making
times details.
Then as seconds
pass us by
the past is gone
we can’t deny.
Leaving baggage
time’s partaken
brings some hopeful
peace awakens.

Tiny Crab

While I was walking
just looking around
I saw a tiny crab
down on the ground.
He walked sideways
each way he went,
this tiny crab
of times intent.
I bent down close
to tell him hello
but it seemed to him
to just impose.
He scurried fastly
on back to the sea
this tiny crab
to get away from me.
But I managed to
tell him goodbye
which for the moment
I know not why.
For he just wanted to
crawl away
and find some peace
one summer’s day.

Scope Of Mind

A certain time
becomes displayed
a scope of mind
with leaves inlaid.
A seasons view
on down the road
becomes a day
that God bestowed.
With our lifestyles
on the brink
with confusion
how we think.
The scope of mind
is found to be
a certain way
of which we see.
Our perceptions
gathered true
become our daily
point of view.
A seasons doorway
that we find
might just be
our scope of mind.

Haunting Dreams

Life is a picture
a timeless emotion
found in some scenes
as a turbulent ocean.
Haunting our minutes
as dreams come true
time becomes moments
with minutes to view.
Sometimes the hauntings
are not but a dream
a time we’ve envisioned
as a fast moving stream.
Life is a picture
that brings us a choice
a time of our mind
to speak out our voice.
Heard as an echo
a scenic surprise
the passing displays
some clouds in the skies.
Our haunting dreams
of heartbeats array
can bring into view
a wonderful day.

Awaiting Time

The sea stands so still
as lives moves along
with now and then often
there then and gone.
As time is with ripples
and a sleeping blue hue
the ones awaiting time
will see their own view.
An ocean of stillness
as a motionless life
displays as fulfillment
without any strife.
Yet time is a billow
with seconds to count
scenes we’ve recorded
as moments surmount.
Our vessel’s preparing
to sail to the sea
as life is concluding
what’s for you and me.
Life is with chances
that we often begrime
found in the seaway
while just awaiting time.

Holes In The Mind

Segments of a cloud
are as thoughts to see
holes in the mind
up above you and me.
Fueled imagination
as clouds in the sky
are as a dreamworld
with life to fly by.
Holes in the mind
are displayed as scenes
maybe as mountains,
maybe as streams.
Clouds give artwork
to create what we see
while we imagine
we are flying so free.
We can be an eagle
that flies with grace
as holes in the mind
create such a place.
That void we created
can become such a time
life within the clouds
as holes in the mind.

Crashing Waves

Binding times
of dismal days
are so often
crashing waves.
Seeming as our
burdens drive,
they so often
keep us alive.
All the struggles
in times we see
can bring a door
and brand new key.
Crashing waves
of looming life
might at times
cut like a knife.
Yet the storms
that time displays
might have lessons
crashing waves.

A Christmas Theme

With winter’s breath
and snow of white
a Christmas theme
comes into sight.
A peaceful view
of certain scenes
becomes the settings
for ones dreams.
The life and times
of hearts aglow
is found within
the Christmas snow.
With carolling
of songs so sweet
and Christmas food
so good to eat.
Those memories
become a day
a Christmas theme
that times display.

Haiku
for July 15,  2017

A flowers purpose
is found within its beauty,
but it is much more.

Living in a dream
can create many problems
for the truth will come.

With lives incomplete
time can become a nightmare
awaiting a dream.

Common sense tells us
to look before you walk out,
but some have no sense.

Time is a bubble
that’s often floating around
until it is popped.

Showers of raindrops
bring life to each living thing,
but sometimes too much.

Now is perspective
seen only by our ideals,
but we might be wrong.

Life is a moment
that a living thing finds breath
of what all it breathes.

Change is theory
as we often view changes
in our own viewpoints.

Beyond what we see
is a whole new perspective
that might live as true.

Mornings of dewdrops
bring refreshing scenes of life
even without rain.

A field of flowers
brings beauty to the moments
as our eyes perceive.

A mere blade of grass
becomes an ocean of life
as it shares its space.

Mind over matter
brings many to destruction
if matter’s too great.

A tree by itself
creates only its shadow
for its company.

Challenges of life
are what that help us to grow
and without stagnates.

Scenes of summertime
bring visions of November
as the seasons change.

Various rain clouds
have much more than that of rain,
for tornadoes thrive.

Counting the minutes
can create much impatience
as seconds grow long.

Autumn awaits us
with brilliantly colored leaves
to welcome winter.

Heartbeats within us
are as guides through turnstiles,
but some are asleep.

Cherishing moments
can create false memories
not so accurate.

Tired Of Waiting

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you had a safe and happy 4th
of July last week.  It was pretty much
the same as usual around here.  I sat
at home while Judy went to her sister’s
house for a cookout.  I wasn’t feeling
up to being around them.  Anyways
the boys went with them,  but it seems
Rocky must of eaten a hot-dog that
made him sick.  We were afraid he was
going to die he got so sick.  He could
not even walk.  Well we took him to
the vet,  and he gave him a shot and a
bunch of medicine for me to give him.
He told us not to give hot dogs to dogs.
He said they would make them sick.
Anyways Judy went to New Hampshire
with her sister’s Saturday and she won’t
be back until this evening or so she says.
We shall see about that LOL.  I’ve been
giving Rocky his medicine morning
and night and he seems to be back to
his old ornery self again.  Yep,  the
medicine worked.  I’m still giving it to
him as the vet instructed.  I want him
to be completely well and his intestines
without any infections.  The poor guy
was in a lot of pain,  but now he’s back
to running around the house playing
with his squeaky toys and Benny LOL.
They both have birthdays coming up
on the 16th.  Actually the 16th of July
is Benny’s birthday and he’ll be 6,  but
being we do not know the actual day of
Rocky’s birthday,  we gave him Benny’s
being we got him (picked him up at the
airport) on Benny’s birthday.  We think
Rocky might be around 3 years old now.
He was Benny’s birthday present hehehe.
What a great birthday present it was 🙂
After him losing his older brother Milo
a week before,  he was needing a little
cheering up and so were we 🙂  He did
the trick.  We still miss Milo as we think
of him often,  but he isn’t in any more
pain now and his spirit is always here
with us watching over us.  I’m sure that
Benny and Rocky can see him and they
run and play with him.  So next topic.
Well,  when Judy returns,  we have plans
to one day in the next week or so take
the boys for a little picture taking drive.
We haven’t yet decided on where or
when we will go,  but have decided for
sure to do it 🙂  It’s something we do
a few times every year.  I’ve been busy
working on volume 5 of our book.  The
picture drives will help me out a lot 🙂
They’ll give me a few new pictures to
write about.  Of course I have in no way
run out of pictures to write about,  but
it will give me a new vision so to say 🙂
Well,  both of the boys are sitting in the
living room waiting for Judy to come
home.  Rocky’s on the futon and Benny
is on his favorite recliner.  They both
come strolling in here time to time to
visit LOL.  Rocky usually strolls in first
and Benny isn’t far behind him hehehe.
This weekend has been rather quiet other
than the boys barking at what they think
is Judy coming home every time someone
passes down the road or a neighbor comes
in or leaves.  Judy left Saturday morning.
I usually will open the door and let them
go outside and look for themselves LOL.
I was supposed to be able to keep the car
as one of her sister’s was going to drive
their car this year,  but it seems that their
alternator went out which left me to ether
say, that is just too bad or toss Judy our
keys and say have fun.  I did the latter,
but I wasn’t happy about it.  I got into
it with Judy’s sister Trudy’s hubby about
what was wrong with their car and lets
just say I do not want to ever see him
again.  He has crossed the line with me
once too often and I am done with him.
So,  this weekend didn’t turn out how we
had planned.  I was going to take the boys
out for a little scenic drive to take a few
pictures and also go to Walmart to buy
a few things we forgot,  but can’t do that
now.  So I am just making do the best
way I know possible.  I’ll go and check
on the boys from time to time if they
don’t make it in here first hehehe.  It’s
not been too bad,  Thank God.  I was
afraid that Rocky was going to still have
trouble with his intestines and I was going
to be cleaning up poop,  but it seems that
he is much better now.  LOL speaking of
the little guy,  I just turned around and
he is sitting in floor right behind me just
a grinning hehehe.  He let me take a few
pictures of him smiling at me 🙂  I stopped
writing for a brief to take the fan outside
and clean it up a bit.  It had collected a
lot of dust and was preventing it from
working as well as it should.  It’s working
great now.  Back to the journal.  Both of
the boys are in here now.  I guess they got
tired of waiting for Judy hehehe.  Benny
just got up and ran out of the room with
Rocky right behind.  I guess he thought he
heard our car.  Personally,  I don’t expect
Judy home till late,  but we shall see.  She
might surprise me hehehe.  God is still
taking good care of us.  We might hit a
few stumbling blocks,  but all in all we
survive and find a few blessings through
the storms.  Thank You God for taking
good care of Rocky.  We are so relieved
to know that his time to leave was not
here yet.  He is his old happy self again.
We love him and Benny as our own kids.
Rocky is back and lying right behind me
again hehehe.  He’s daddy’s boy 🙂  Now
it seems I have run out of rambling for
the moment and so I guess 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 word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem.
So,  it’s away I go to that little place of
my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found a
fairly decent title just a few lines back and
now after checking I see that I have not
used it yet,  so used it shall be.  Here goes.

Tired Of Waiting

Life’s misleading
journey’s made
with some moments
hard to wade.
Often minutes
seem like hours
as each passage
time empowers.
For the moments
take their time
leaving riddles
then to find.
Tired of waiting
then falls through
leaving breathless
me and you.
Yet the seconds
we perceive
might have lessons
found to weave.
We’re often found
anticipating
creating moments
tired of waiting.

I hope you enjoyed the poem and maybe
even understood it hehehe.   If not,  as I’ve
said time and again,  maybe it wasn’t meant
for you and yours is next week 🙂  So many
views can come from 1 poem.  So OK now,
what else is there to tell you that I forgot
to mention before?  Well weather wise,  it’s
not too bad.  Today’s high was 74 F which is
what it is right now at 5:30 PM.  Nope not
too bad.  Tomorrow looks like a near repeat
of today. July is the hottest month up here.
Alrighty then,  it looks like I have filled you
in on all that’s gone on around here.  LOL
of course I’m sure I may have forgotten 1
or 2 things,  but I guess if I did,  it’ll be OK.
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 added 3.
1 of them is a Christmas poem.  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.  I reckon it’s
time for me to begin my search for that
not so elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a wonderful weekend or what’s
left of it and truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Hmm,  where can that off switch be hiding
this time hehehe or put more to the point
sitting thinking he’s hidden.  LOL I had
to look pretty hard this time.  I thought you
might be using an old spot,  but nope 🙂
I caught a glimpse of you hiding up under
my Jesus hat.  Again,  I would not of seen
you if you would just stay hidden,  but
then in that case,  I would not find you
and this journal would never get sent LOL.
So I guess it all works out for the better.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Stars And Stripes

Across the sky
is a memory
sights and sounds
for you and me.
Fireworks blazing
speaking of scenes
that eludes many
of what it means.
Stars and stripes
to signify
the lives of time
that live and die.
A scene of truth
and American ways
is of our flag
and way it waves.
Stars and stripes
the American pride
the life we hold
as freedom derived.

Grim

The reaper comes
to take away
when time is done
for young and gray.
There’s no number
no age to choose
the life and times
we win or lose.
For that old Grim
will come to find
the scenes we’ve laid
within our time.
He does not choose
for Heaven or Hell,
for he’s just the Grim
as stories foretell.
So do your best daily
and don’t waste away
while waiting for Grim
to come one day.

Christmas Desires

Some old pictures
bring in view
seasons special
wondrous hue.
Snow so white
as life’s displayed
time has drifted
magic made.
Christmas desires
we have sought
in a photo
life has bought.
Paid with memoirs
journeys found
Christmas desires
sight and sound.
Christmas songs
on the radio
often have the
words of snow.
Life’s a blessing
time acquires
filled with love
Christmas desires.

Beating The Heat

The heat of summer
begins to rise
with that sunshine
in the skies.
A pool with water
or lake nearby
can help you out
when sweats run dry.
Found in a painting
might surely display
beating the heat
in a wonderful way.
Snoopy the dog
just floating with ease
within the summer
and cool pool breeze.
The story is painted
a wonderful view
snoopy in a pool
with water so blue.
He’s just relaxing
his head to his feet
while he is floating
beating the heat.

Flowing Mind

Minds like water
pour like gold
thoughts as rivers
stories told.
A flowing mind
as seasons sway
becomes a scene
a journey’s way.
As life becomes
emotions motion
the waters flow
into the ocean.
Yet the distance
might be long
a flowing mind
just drifts along.
Catching waves
of life’s design
drifting through
a flowing mind.

Mow Them Away

Often the grasses
become some weeds
if we allow them
to plant their seeds.
Time becomes ages
of counted array
ones with a mower
to clear them away.
Then as the minutes
of time move along
the weeds that grew
will soon be gone.
Life is a struggle
with grasses of green
turning to nightmares
discolored dream.
So use the mower
of lessons of time
to mow them away
the weeds that you find.

The Sky Awakens

With waves that roll
and oceans tide
the sky awakens
with eyes opened wide.
The sun is shining
on through the clouds
showing the beauty
a lifetime endows.
The sky awakens
to show its path
a cloudy horizon
of shadows it casts.
Time is a doorway
to scenes to explore
as the sky awakens
to display much more.
This is a moment
a certain perception,
the sky awakens
to show its connection.
Found as a window
that many mistaken
is life at it’s source
as the sky awakens.

A Passing Storm

A seasons life
of now and then
begins its path
of time again.
A time of spring,
summer and fall
a seasons life
can then enthrall.
A passing storm
can make its way
to change the view
to night from day.
The winter winds
of memories
are seasons seen,
a mighty breeze.
One might stand
within the cold
and watch snow fall
as times unfold.
The moment seeks
a time so warm
to make it through
a passing storm.

Ride The Waves

Painted water
waves that roll
finds a picture
then unfold.
One of Snoopy
catching ten
with doggy paws
to do again.
A simple scene
of cartoon days
sees old Snoopy
ride the waves.
Hear the roaring
times that pass
as old Snoopy
rides them fast.
He’s an all star
as he moves
keeping in
the daily grooves.
Yes old Snoopy
rides the waves
like a pro
on doggy days.

Fireworks

The rolling thunder
heard so loud
fireworks roaring
life we’re proud.
Missiles shooting
strike the sky
fireworks gleaming
up so high.
Reasons meanings
bring a show
in the night light
high and low.
Fireworks making
sounds to hear
as remembered
yesteryear.
Independence
the sight displays
as our memoirs
yesterdays.

Pier Of Rocks

One day with waves
upon the shore
a pier of rocks
I did so explore.
As I walked along
that wonderful way
I was admiring
each scenic wave.
One day was seen
a summer’s view
waves that came
from ocean blue.
One day was found
myself and I
seeing my journey
as time went by.
Hearing the ocean
speaking to me
words of a phrase
my eyes could see.
Scenes came alive
as seagulls squawks
found as a blessing
a pier of rocks.

Life Exists

A stage of white
with times aglow
is life within
the fallen snow.
Time’s a doorway
entered through
as life exists
with whitish hue.
The scene’s alive
as times unfold
while life exists
from days of old.
A window view
brings forth a sight
a scenic gaze
of snow of white.
A distant time
just like a mist
is winter’s scenes
as life exists.

Upon The Rocks

Beyond a smile
might be a frown
a life that’s surely
going down.
Upon the rocks
of misery
a time of which
you cannot see.
A smile might hide
a frown inside
from life of times
that’s lived and died.
Don’t be misled
by a tarnished grin
one that might
have frowns within.
For there’s so many
upon the rocks
that only show
a smile that’s lost.

Haiku
for July 8,  2017

Before and after
are what we remember best
as now fades away.

While life shows roses
there are thorns yet to be found
that might leave their mark.

The latest stories
of the present interactions
might hold many lies.

Lost in a moment
time might seem to fade away,
but it still exists.

Dandelion fields
bring forth colors of sunshine
to enhance the day.

Without a turnstile
we would never move forward
and become ourselves.

Allowing someone
to control you through anger
can one day explode.

When life throws curve balls
be prepared to miss a few
and accept failure.

The heart that beats true
will surely find its echo
as time goes its way.

Living in past tense
will prevent any future
that is good to see.

Belief of spirits
allows growth from within you
to see passed your sight.

Yearning for something
can become as a burden
that keeps you in want.

Flowers of nature
bring beauty and nourishment
to life thereabouts.

Things that are hidden
might hold many mysteries
that we need to live.

The leaves of the trees
change their face through the seasons
and tell their stories.

Sometimes might seen long,
but be just a mere moment
that we’re focused on.

Without any past
we have nothing to learn from
so pay attention.

Showers of raindrops
bring pleasure and often pain
due to the moments.

Tomorrows journey
begins with our steps today
as we will prepare.

Lost in perception
many fail to see the truth
within someone’s words.

Shouting out loudly
does not make someone listen,
for they’ve closed their ears.

The length of a step
is the focal point of life
that some never see.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you are doing well.  Judy and I
are enjoying the weekend.  There’s not
much going on around here.  The boys
got a haircut Thursday 🙂  They look so
cute now.  Benny looks like a Chihuahua
and Rocky looks cute too.  LOL Rocky
has begun noticing his tail that he didn’t
see that much of due to all of his hair and
he chases it around hehehe.  He is weird,
but we love him 🙂  They both seem to
have a bit more bounce in their step as
they also had their toenails clipped and
they were needing it LOL.  So,  what else
has gone on around this place?  Well,
volume 4 of Pearce’s Poetry Pictures is
now for sale.  LOL I’ve already begun
work on volume 5,  although it might be
a while later in the year before I’m done
with it.  That’s a lot of writing and work
getting the poems formatted into pictures
and paintings.  Hopefully our books start
selling soon.  At the moment though we
have only sold a small few books.  Maybe
one day when I’m dead and gone LOL.
So onto another topic.  The weather up
here has been fairly nice.  Although today
it is quite warm with a high of 79F.  Yep
warm,  but not quite as warm as it is in
Texas I’m quite sure LOL.  I believe the
high for Greenville Texas today is 93F 🙂
We are though using our portable AC
today.  I’ve got it set on dehumidifier
and that provides a lot of cool air using
that mode.  Our landlord hired one of
the tenants to wash the backside of our
mobile home yesterday.  LOL there’s
still a lot to do.  She only washed the
lower part.  Judy ordered a cheap power
washer from Amazon the other day in
hopes of that helping to get our mobile
home washed.  It might not work too
well being it only cost 20 dollars LOL.
We shall see.  We figure we can use it
to wash our car and maybe even the
boys when they get all nasty hehehe 🙂
So,  it will get used.  It doesn’t look as
though there is any rain in the forecast
until maybe Friday,  but we shall see.
The clouds have a habit of making the
weathermen out as liars LOL.  So what
else is there to tell ya?  Well Judy has
been busy painting more pictures and
she’s getting better with every stroke of
the brush.  I’m still writing picture poems
and using many of her paintings  for the
poems.  I’ve already written 16 picture
poems for book 5 LOL,  or as they’re
called in the title of our books Poetry
Pictures hehehe.  The Pearce’s Place is
still booming with life as our boys run
around the house playing chase or are
often just wanting to play.  Thank You
God for giving me these things to enjoy.
Yes we have our bad days,  but it’s with
the bad days that the good days shine.
With each day comes more blessings
in disguise.  Some in form as troubles
that in time become the tools that we
need to grow.  Thank You Lord for
all of these.  Now I believe it’s time
for me to be taking a little trip back
through all that I’ve written here to
see if I can find a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s
brand new poem.  So,  it’s away I go
to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a decent title
just a few lines back and now after
checking I see that it has not been used
yet,  So,  away we go…..

These Things

Those times of life
that form to breathe
might become times
we don’t believe.
They might be strange
to our own view
the way we’ve always
chose to do.
Yet these things
that come in sight
might be from God
to show what’s right.
The different days
we watch and wait
these things might be
of a different date.
A moments time
might not be here
to give these things
we want so dear.
A simple turn
of life’s own stage
might make these things
to fill with rage.
So don’t let want
to steal your smile
and make these things
of Hell’s compile.

There ya go.  I hope you liked and maybe
even understood the poem.  If not,  then
sorry LOL.  Maybe next week as I have
found that often something is not meant
for us to understand being it’s for another.
I’ve noticed that many times there will be
a lot of perspectives on what I’ve written.
My dad used to call my journals sermons.
Though many of my journals are nothing
more than humor to help you with life and
maybe even a few life lessons.  I hope you
enjoyed all of my rambling.  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.  Yep,
10 more poems with 6 extra and 1 of the
poems is a Christmassy poem.  I also wrote
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.  Now I reckon
it’s time for me to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a wonderful weekend or
whatever’s left of it and a truly blessings
filled week and a Happy and safe 4th of
July.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now,  to find that ornery off
switch.  Where can it be hiding or at best
sitting at hehehe?  Hmmmmmmmmmm,
searching the normal hiding spots.  Nope,
not there.  LOL but then in a new spot,
there ya are.  Hiding behind the radiator
heater that is unplugged at the moment.
If you would ever learn to stay hid and
not be poking your head up every once
in a while,  I might not find you so easy.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

A Winter Mind

Life becomes
its own array
of time to time
and day to day.
A season’s sight
is found to be
a timeless voyage
through history.
A winter mind
becomes a flight
snow that’s fell
in season’s sight.
Those memories
of now and then
will come to life
and again begin.
White as angels
snow is found
a winter mind
of sight and sound.
Many blessings
live and breathe
a winter mind
to then perceive.

Time Passes On

Inside my mind
I view a wave
a distant time
of yesterday.
Inside this view
my mind perceives
the waves of time
as oceans leaves.
Thrusting waters
changing face
as time passes on
and scenes enlace.
Words as echoes
far and wide
as time passes on
with views applied.
The morning sun
displays a scent
of the passing
of times intent.
Rolling thunder
waves of dawn
are gifts from God
as time passes on.

Lost Perspective

Beyond our sight
might be a scene
a time and place
that’s in between.
A mere moment
hidden from view
a lost perspective
that’s really true.
Time might seem
to be just a lie,
but live as life
we cannot deny.
A lost perspective
of how and when
will come into view
as now and then.
Things we thought
that could not be
might one day then
be clear to see.
Our lost perspective
might find its way
to see the truth
in now today.

Reflection

Life’s embrace
is a memory
often seen
as a mystery.
A mere moment’s
own reflection
becomes a scene
within detection.
Signs of life
with love so true
reflecting time
a wondrous view.
Like a reflection
of time’s displayed
a photo voyage
that can’t degrade.
It lives inside
as shadows thrive
as a reflection
to stay alive.
Found within
a photograph
life’s reflection
is unmasked.

Lupine Dreams

A stroll down the road
uncovers such a sight,
a scene full of colors
amidst the daylight.
A pleasant aroma
comes rolling like waves
while purple colors
give so much to gaze.
Visualized awakened
while I walk along
the flowers give music
for me to sing along.
Words from my heartbeat
with textures so sweet
found on my journey
to make it complete.
Feeding my minds eye
with wonderful scenes,
this is my journey
with lupine dreams.

Complacent River

As life meets struggles
and time finds tests
many will continue
to not do their best.
There are so many
that allow time to be,
repeating the problems
of their history.
Becoming complacent
a dead river of life
allowing the pathway
to fill full of strife.
Then as the minutes
and hours pass by
found in the mirror
is life that’s run dry.
Not seeking answers
while looking away
many will often
be lost in dismay.
Don’t let your journey
be less to deliver
filled full of muck
as a complacent river.

Just Like Gold

Hidden from time
there’s a path inlaid
a journey to find
of a photo parade.
Just like gold
is a memory
a sight to behold
with life to see.
God then unleashes
a scene to gaze
a time so divine
that a path displays.
Just like gold
in a wondrous view
life is transformed
into something new.
Time is a moment
that passes me by
found in a pathway
I cannot deny.
Autumn colors
then surely unfold
as scenes come alive
that are just like gold.

Enchanted Skies

One time long ago
I remember a view
an enchanted scene
in a sky of blue.
The moon was bright
in evenings sky
as clouds of pink
would pass it by.
A magical moment
that my eyes explored
became so alive
as an ocean on board.
Clouds as waves
would float with ease
in enchanted skies
of summer’s eve.
The moon would glow
so bright and true
in enchanted skies
so bold and blue.

Black Eyed Susan

A scene so serene
as a yellow flower
becomes as a dream
of a times empower.
A black eyed Susan
painted with glee
the sign of a time
that God gave free.
A mere recording
that one painted on
a time remembered
of lifetime at dawn.
A black eyed Susan
that seems like gold
becomes as a story
a painter has told.
Life as a moment
time has displayed
painted emotion
as life’s lemonade.
A scene so serene
as a mere memory
a black eyed Susan
God gave you and me.

Christmas Trail

Footprints in snow
as a path of white
becomes as a trail
such a magical sight.
Found as a journey
time frames to see
is a Christmas trail
as white as can be.
It holds deep within it
a life carried on
ones snapping pictures
from times early dawn.
Written with passion
as a story to find
a moment recorded
of one special time.
A sweet memory
in wondrous detail
is a path that’s inlaid
as a Christmas trail.

Purple Flower

Now envisioned
might seem blue
as your problems
timeless true.
Some become as
innuendoes
found as mirrors
within windows.
Then the minutes
time has made
start their journey
life’s cascade.
That is when you
need to look
and find answers
you’ve mistook.
Maybe something
passed you by
leaving questions
how and why.
It might be simple
to empower
problems as
a purple flower.

A Simple Smile

A field of life
and time displayed
becomes a place
with moments made.
A simple smile
of times gone by
becomes an echo
the times reply.
With every minute
found to see
a simple smile
makes history.
It brings the joy
and love alive
a simple scene
a field of life.
A page is turned
that times compile
with just a scene
a simple smile.

Within The Waves

Found as blessings
waves roll on
timeless moments
like a song.
An ocean photo
comes alive
a scene of wonder
found to thrive.
Dogs seen dancing
in the waves
of those wondrous
summer days.
Seagulls flying
dancing too
within the waves
within my view.
Dogs and seagulls
join together
within the waves
that last forever.
A joyful scene
is then explored
as my mindset
climbs aboard.

Life As Bubbles

Maiden voyages
bubbles fly
floating up
into the sky.
Life is counted
then and gone
life as bubbles
float along.
Seen as moments
seen as life
often portrayed
as our strife.
Voyage to Heaven
scenes display
life as bubbles
float away.
Filling turnstiles
with a view
bubbles floating
thereunto.
Seen as dreams
that seem so real
life as bubbles
is surreal.

A Cookout

The day prevails
with wondrous ways
a cookout scene
of summer’s days.
The fire’s flaming
cooking meat
that’s soon to be
real good to eat.
The day prevails
as clouds roll in
a summer’s day
of now and then.
A cookout scene
of life and times
becomes a day
of burgers prime.
The taste entails
a true cuisine
a cookout day
a wondrous scene.

Pond Of Dreams

The light of day
provides a view
a scenic phase
with skies of blue.
A pond of dreams
begins to sail
and bring to life
a wondrous tale.
It holds within
its waters blue
a dreamers gaze
of times come true.
A pond of dreams
is not alone,
for it’s beside
a forgotten home.
The home is quiet
as time convenes
to rest beside
a pond of dreams.

Haiku
for July 1,  2017

The test of minutes
is found within our patience
while counting seconds.

The joy of a smile
is unpredictable time
that sparkles like gold.

A raindrops essence
brings forth life from within it
one drop at a time.

The shadows of life
are simple echoes we’ve made
while walking along.

Time is a moment
that becomes portions of life
as minutes tick on.

Going up a hill
is best when motivated
with a wondrous view.

Walking in sunshine
can display the best moments
and highlight the bad.

Need of a flower
is that of the morning dew
to begin the day.

Ocean waves will roll
speaking volumes within time
as they crash ashore.

The width of a lie
is the determining fact
of what that is true.

Clouds loudly speaking
have a story within them
much more than we see.

A kite flying high
grabs tight to each passing breeze
to keep it aloft.

Seasons of displays
become authors of their lives
as the moments change.

Wild flowers will bloom
to bring beauty in our lives
to outshine the weeds.

Lost in a dream world
ones will often find nightmares
that our wants allow.

The distant journeys
of our minds of perception
can become sadness.

The life of a rose
begins as a mere seedling
that has been cared for.

Storm clouds bring raindrops
with some lightning and thunder
to entertain us.

Patience is acquired
as your life throws many stones
for you to accept.

Many threads of life
are woven in and out through time
with rusty needles.

Belief in oneself
can be either a blessing
or an illusion.

The salt of the Earth
is the life that shines from it
to create journeys.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope all of the dads had a wonderful
Father’s Day last Sunday.  Mine wasn’t
that great being I was terribly sick and
barely amongst the living.  Judy had to
practically carry me to bed.  I could not
stand up.  That’s the reason you didn’t
hear from me last Sunday :).  Anyways,
I’m much better now.  So onwards with
the journal.  We were with well problems
for almost 2 weeks.  Our landlord though
has finally gotten it fixed.  The well is for
all 4 of the mobile homes.  The pump was
going out and had to be reset every hour
on the hour for us to have any water.
Thank God that’s over with.  It’s quite a
walk out to the well house.  LOL Yes I
know,  I need the exercise :),  but it was
not doing me any good last weekend with
me not being able to walk without falling.
One of our new neighbors tried to keep the
pump reset for me as much as he was able.
He knew I was in bad shape.  Life goes on.
Our landlord got onto us about our dogs
barking,  but I think it has to do with all
of the problems he has been having around
here with the well pump and other tenants
being he has never had a problem with the
boys barking to come in before and we’ve
had them for over 5 years LOL.  Milo used
to bark to come inside when he was done
outside just the same as Rocky does hehehe.
Benny is content with sitting on the porch
or under the car watching life go on until
we let him back inside.  Oh well,  hopefully
things will get back to normal around here
now that the well is operational again,  but
time will tell if the new neighbors stay or
go.  Judy and I actually sort of prefer to
not have any neighbors.  We kind of like
the quietness and privacy.  OK next topic.
We finally got new tires,  brakes and rotors
put on our car and got it inspected.  It’s
ready for another year of Maine weather.
I bought an air conditioner recharger for
our cars air conditioner,  not that we use
the AC that much up here when driving 🙂
Most of the time I have my window open
and I’m taking pictures of all the scenery
while Judy’s driving.  For instance,  the
high for today is 75 F and the forecast for
the week has tomorrow’s high of 70 F as
the same for the rest of the week with a
couple of days with a high of 72 F.  Yep,
the weather up here is nothing compared
to Texas or the other southern states LOL.
I do not miss that heat.  Though,  it will
get a bit warmer beginning around the
middle of July,  being July is the hottest
month up here,  to where in Texas August
is the hottest month.  I’ve got our AC in
here set on dehumidifier right now and it
can almost freeze you out just with that
settings alone brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr LOL.
So what else is going on around this place?
Well,  we’re still scheduled to get our dogs
hair groomed this week.  Hopefully the
boys don’t give the lady too much of a
problem.  I cannot wait to see them with
their hair trimmed nice and tidy hehehe.
We’ll post pictures of them on Facebook
when she’s done 🙂  Judy’s sister gave her
a Fitbit and she’s been keeping tabs on
her food intake and exercise.  She has
even finally uncovered the treadmill and
began using it every day.  As soon as I get
back to feeling more like myself,  I’ll be
using it,  but then I do a lot of walking
outside.  We’re planning on taking the
boys for a field trip tomorrow (Monday)
after she gets back from her doctors visit
in Bangor.  I might go out and run around
with the boys/dogs a bit before she gets
home.  Yep,  we live an exciting life hehehe.
We have our share of problems,  but all in
all,  God pulls us through.  Problems hit
us all from different sides of the fence,  but
none the less it’s the owner of the problems
that has their own perspective on them and
views them as such.  Tomorrow’s journey
is a pathway  to the unpredictable,  for we
can only guess and do the best we can with
now and today.  So,  with that said I guess
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.
And so it’s away I go to that little place of
my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may have
found a decent title just a few lines back
and now after checking I see that I have not
used it yet,  which freaking surprises me for
the simplicity of the word LOL.  OK,  so I
hope I can write something that makes sense
using it hehehe.  Here goes nothing LOL.

Perspective

Life is a window
that we look through
some seeing differently
the things that we view.
Time’s a perspective
that comes as a phase
written in lifestyles
of so many ways.
Shattered are dreams
that so many will strive
when lost in perspective
of how to stay alive.
Seek for the life light
of Heaven above
find the right perspective
in your life then thereof
Don’t allow your sight
to become only gray
as your own perspective
gets lost in the day.
Let God and His angels
to guide you on through
to a better perspective
of your daily view.

There ya go.  🙂 I know it’s not much of a
poem,  but it’s what came to me.  So if you
didn’t understand it or like it,  then maybe
it wasn’t for you.  Maybe next week it will
be for you.  Only God knows.  So,  hmm,
I wonder,  is there anything else that I need
to tell you aside from the regular?  Oh yea,
our good friend at Graham’s Redemption
center where we return all of our cans and
what not,  passed away.  He was 3 years
younger than Judy and I.  Please put his
wife and kids in your prayers.  His wife is
continuing on with the Redemption center
being that is their only form of income.  He
will most surely be missed.  I thought of him
as family.  Such a wonderful man.  I feel
sad for his wife.  She was in tears when we
stopped to return cans the other day.  I did
the best I could to try and cheer her up,  but
most know that in instances such as these
the only thing you can do is pray for them.
Oh yea,  something else.  I finally got done
with book 4 of Pearce’s Poetry Pictures and
Judy and I spent most of yesterday evening
getting it all put together and uploaded to
the site for it to be reviewed and then when
they send me an OK and link to it,  I’ll go
and buy a proof copy to check it out myself.
Then if I find it is ready for publication,
I’ll OK it and it will be for sell along with
the others.  I’ll let ya know when it’s ready.
So,  OK,  now I believe it’s time for me to
tell you what I tell you almost every week
of course aside from last week LOL and
that is hehehe,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  LOL many of them are from
the week prior to this passed week though.
Yeppers,  10 more poems with an added 11
with 1 being sort of Christmassy HoHoHo.
I also wrote 22 haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find 1 or
2 of either or both that you like.  Now I
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’s left of it and a truly blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Ok now,  where is that
silly off switch hiding at this week?  He
had an extra week to look for a good place
to hide this time LOL.  I think I see him
in my bag of greeting cards as the bag’s
seeming to be leaning just a bit more than
it was before due to weight of the cards 🙂
Yep,  I see ya.  Why don’t you try hiding
in a spot next time that is not right square
in front of me or thereabouts hehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Allium

As life becomes
a scene to see
it also becomes
a mystery.
Plants that grow
as scents detail
and foods to eat
with pungent smell.
This is life
a moments mind
a scene or smell
we often find.
Even the texture
that life displays
is like Allium
in its ways.
A pungent smell
or taste of life
will often cut you
like a knife.
Yet the moment
of which you see
might become
the best to be.

Suddenly Scenes

Just but a dream
of then but a time
can become a scene
of a wondrous design.
Seen oh so suddenly
life is portrayed
sometimes within us
the waters to wade.
A simple field
of a memory
can become as a time
that we wish to see.
Some distant horses
watching time pass
as they are standing
and eating the grass.
Suddenly scenes
become such a phase
a moment recorded
of our distant days.
As but a blessing
from a story book
the pages are found
just seeking a look.

Another Look

Life as Heaven
are times displayed
as sights are given
so softly laid.
God’s own beauty
as a certain sight
another look
with left and right.
We tend to sway
so many thoughts
as another look
gets surely lost.
Many dimensions
ours to perceive
Heavenly blessings
are hope to weave.
Another look
brings time to life
a scene so serene
as lesser of strife.
Time is a blessing
that’s often mistook
so we might need
yet another look.

Monochrome Skies

Living reflections
of waves that roll
an ocean is found
a momentous goal.
Underneath scenes
of monochrome skies
they are reflected
in a dreamers eyes.
Sounds of the waves
are as Heaven’s peace
with monochrome skies
to give their release.
A couple might stand
and enjoy the view
as the ocean and skies
display such a hue.
Monochrome scenes
with waves rolling in
as dim clouds above
play Heaven’s violin.
Love and emotion
the seas ebb and rise
as the waves roll in
with monochrome skies.

Signs Of Life

Scenes of green
and colors within
are found displayed
as seasons begin.
Spring to flourish
summer to shine
signs of life
a wondrous design.
Life is transferred
in many things
as grasses will grow
and birdies will sing.
Life is a pattern
that’s put into place
as signs of life
filled full of grace.
Just like a doorway
a turnstile of peace
the signs of life
give us their release.
Displayed as stages
counted so true
the signs of life
display a new view.
Often a vision
a sign of a dream
seasons will display
a wonderful scene.
The signs of life
are beauty divine
things remembered
a wonderful time.

Imagination Nation

Charismatic clouds
float with the breeze
telling their stories
of oceans and seas.
Creating pictures
of a scenic divine
imagination nation
moments entwined.
Painted with life
a cloud filled dream
ones imagination
might see a stream.
Flowing up above
in the sky faraway
imagination nation
is a magical day.
Seen as an ocean
waves tried and true
ones imagination
can create a view.
A moment recorded
a skyline plantation
this is what can be
imagination nation.

Old Point Of View

Seconds of weather
become as a time
an old point of view
of a distant design.
Life may have faded
and left in its place
an old point of view
of a somebody’s face.
Time may of gathered
while displaying pain,
an old point of view
of a time and again.
Life is a farmhouse
of wood colored life
painted as memories,
some filled with strife.
An old point of view
might be all it is
for you might surely
be a little amiss.

Evening Falls

The day finds end
and time moves on
as sunshine fades
and soon is gone.
Found as shadows
are sights to see
as evening falls
on you and me.
Within the settings
the sun’s surmise
it’s time to go
and fade the skies.
Leaving glimmers
of each detail
the evening falls
to let stars sail.
The moon appears
with it’s large face
as evening falls
with Heavens grace.
Then the starlight
through the clouds
tells a story
words to browse.
For the sunshine
seeks the west
to find another
place to rest.
As evening falls
and becomes night
the stars above
shine very bright.

Cherry Blossoms

Living colors
as the clouds
cherry blossoms
time endows.
White and pink
are trees of style
often seen
to give a smile.
They are often
called sukura
cherry blossoms

Some as paintings
life to see
found as clouds
amidst a tree.
Seasons display
scenes so awesome

cherry blossoms.

Times Unfold

Old to new
found now today
life begins
to fade away.
Times unfold
as memories
life’s displayed
within the trees.
Many scenes
will come alive
a page in time
that does survive.
Times unfold
to new desires
many scenes
a mind transpires.
Life’s a journey
new to old
found on days
that times unfold.

Ocean Of Dawn

Pictures taken
upon the beach
display a life
within ones reach.
Waves of life
that gently roll
become a path
for ones to stroll.
Ocean of dawn
becomes a theme
a life partaken
like a dream.
One might stand
to catch a breeze
in their pictures
of the seas.
They photograph
as waves roll on
the life and time
ocean of dawn.

Breath Of Heaven

Looking through
an open path
I found a scene
to surely last.
It came to life
within my eyes
this view I saw
beneath the skies.
A mountainscape
of Earthly love
a breath of Heaven
from above.
The scene I saw
was history
this mountaintop
my eyes could see.
I brought it home
in a photograph
a breath of Heaven
from the past.

Sky’s Reflection

Many days ago
in fondest of views
I saw a reflection
in wonderful hues.
The sky’s reflection
was a scenic sight
with life awakened
reflections of light.
A bird is walking
with a magical gaze
while I am standing
watching the waves.
The sky’s reflection
is scented so sweet
as a mere moment
waves at my feet.
It’s but a story
a rhythm of rhyme
the sky’s reflection
of Heaven’s design.

Ready To Sail

Seen on the shoreline
a ship readies way
a journey a lifestyle
on one distant day.
It’s but a shadow
of yesterdays dreams
ready to sail
to life’s fishing scenes.
Time’s but a moment
that came into place
as ones seek to sail
to oceanic space.
Weighing the anchor
for seas of beyond
beginning a journey
for life to move on.
Time is of clockwork
as the waters inhale

Let the moments

Silhouette Summer

The hot summers heat
displays with a sight
some scenes well hidden
from summers sunlight.
Found in a threshold
of lifetimes disdain
some plants might hide
just awaiting the rain.
Silhouette summer
is a seasonal stage
filled with creations
of age unto age.
Green leaves to blossom
and give forth their due
as daisies put forth
their wonderful view.
Time is a doorway
that swings to and fro
giving the flowers
a season to grow.
Each life is as if

times attune.
With a blossom
time will be
a flower’s life
to surely see.
We are also
seen to show
a flower’s life
and how we grow.
Certain moments

might be turning
of the leaves.
Counted seasons
bring to light

Wending Away

Miles we’ve driven
time’s displayed
the winding roads
that life has made.
As a mere journey
thereto and back
wending away
might seem off track.
Minutes and hours
gather their speed
giving the lessons
that we daily need.
Some as a season
and some as a trail
as we wend away
lifestyles set sail.
Seeking the blessings
on down the road
many will falter
with life’s heavy load
Often our journeys
will seem a bit gray
as we are traveling
wending away.

The Gardening Table

I now remember
those sweet days of old
with my grandparents
a life to unfold.
Gardening side by side
we gathered crop
and when we were done
put it on the tabletop.
The gardening table
awaited our gain
all that we gathered
before season’s rain.
Life was a blessing
as each day was found
with me in the garden
knees on the ground.
Me either planting
or harvesting crop
with my grandparents
and never to stop.
The best I could do
and all I was able
to provide us with food
on the gardening table.

Pier And Time

Calmness on one side
waves on another
finds then a place
for a time to discover.
Footsteps as stories
written in a rhyme
find a few doorways
in a pier and time.
Waves as a sentence
repeating a path
ones on a journey
with a ocean of class.
Time is a novel
that often comes true
then with some wording
creates a new view.
Scenes such as waters
waves of design
find then a portal

Winter Memories

The passing of time
on an old country road
displays such a scene
of a Christmas bestowed.
Seasonal settings
with snow on the ground
those winter memories
with a seasonal sound.
Songs on the radio
playing sweet tunes
Christmastime blessings
then to come soon.
While one day driving
seeking for a sight
we came across moments
of a Christmas delight.
Many winter memories
came into view
as an old snowy barn
with the whitest of hue.
It spoke out as memoirs
with shadows it cast
of its winter memories
now from the past.

Haiku
for Jun 16,  2017

Beyond the sunrise
is a moment to behold
and find the blessings.

The length of a day
gets lost in our perceptions
and creates a void.

Living in a dream
there will often emerge lies
that grew from wanting.

Hate is a feeling
that’s often spawned from egos
that grew from the past.

Time in a bottle
will often sail like a ship
in oceans of waves.

Thought without thinking
is often filled with despair
just like loose cannons.

The last rose will bloom
and then autumn will begin
colorful changes.

Life is a doorway
that swings as a pendulum
as lifestyles unite.

Love is perception
with the way that ones choose friends
and choose enemies.

A page out of now
might find its way inside life
of our tomorrows.

Senseless are players
that don’t know when to give up
and admit defeat.

Dandelions grow
with the lifestyles of a weed,
but seen as flowers.

A soapy shower
might leave some scum in places
that you cannot see.

Nearing a stop sign
many will only slow down
just to read the sign.

Distance is a glance
when seen from wanted travel
and where you’re happy.

Spring flowers will bloom
as summertime soon follows
to flourish more life.

Seeds of a moment
are the chances we can have
if they are nourished.

A painting of life
can mimic what someone sees
or what they dream of.

Decisions of time
find the seconds adding up
to our good and bad.

Morning brings secrets
to be seen and acknowledged
or be washed away.

Life’s bewilderment’s
are the scenes that come in view
that do not make sense.

Evening brings the stars
to say goodbye to the sun
and hello to night.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well another week has come and gone
bringing summer into view.  Today has
been one of our hottest.  The high for
today is supposed to be 92 F and right
now it’s 89 F.  Although after today it’s
back to the 60’s and 70’s for a while 🙂
Yep,  the weather up here is more to my
likings compared to Texas 🙂  It doesn’t
look like it will be reaching to 90 degree
mark.  Right now it’s 88 F at 4:40 PM 🙂
Yep,  I don’t miss the triple digit weather
that I remember oh so well when I lived
in Texas LOL.  Though I do get tired
of snow after a 4 or 5 months of it in
wintertime LOL,  but for the most part
I love it being it creates many picture
taking moments.  Also Benny loves the
snow and Rocky kind of likes it too 🙂
Watching those boys bouncing around
in the snow is a sight to see.  I will often
go out and play with them in the snow,
tossing snowballs for them to chase LOL.
Yep,  I should of been born up here :).
The weather more suits me.  So,  next
topic.  Well,  Judy has been painting
a lot more pictures.  She’s done quite
a few abstract.  Right now she’s been
busy working on another children’s book
titled The Adventures Of Benny and Milo.
I’m sure the next book will be including
Rocky.  Judy and I are quite the team.
She paints and I write poetry, often using
her paintings 🙂  Right now I have our
portable AC running in here.  We won’t
need it long.  By 8 PM it’s should be in
the 70’s then the 60’s by 10 PM.  LOL
tomorrow’s high is supposed to be 68 F.
Next topic.  It looks like our landlord
is having all of the mobile homes fixed
up around here.  I’ll be glad when they
get started on ours.  Our neighbors have
BIG dogs,  but they seem to love our
little boys.  Although Benny is the only
one that wants to play with them.  Rocky
is shy and doesn’t like to be around them.
He might work through it,  but if not then
that’s OK too.  It’s not like it’s the end of
the world LOL.  Little Rocky is needing
a haircut bad,  but we tried and it was
just too much for us.  We called a week
or so ago to get him and Benny set up
with an appointment with the groomer.
Unfortunately it’s not scheduled until
the 29th of this month.  Hopefully she
has a cancellation and can get them in
earlier.  She’s very reasonable priced 🙂
Then we can trim it,  off and on through
the summer and then let their hair grow
back for winter to keep them warm when
they go out to potty or to play.  We’ve
got a bunch of sweaters and raincoats
for them,  but they don’t do that great
of a job LOL.  Benny is always trying
to yank Rocky’s sweater off of him 🙂
Not intentionally,  but in play time LOL.
They love to romp and play and they’re
often heard running throughout the house
playing chase.  Yes,  they do tend to get
on our nerves from time to time hehehe,
but for the most part,  we love it.  They
are our boys 🙂  We thank God for these
boys every day.  LOL Ok maybe not on
the days that they are more ornery than
usual,  but most of the time hehehehe.
So often we each we will forget the good
times and only remember the bad times.
Let your focus to remember the bad times
as lessons and the good times as blessings.
Of course they are both blessings,  but
it is often hard to count the bad times as
blessings.  None the less,  they are.  Now
I believe it’s time for me to be looking
back on all that I’ve written here to see
if I can find a good word or phrase that
I can use for the title for today’s brand
new poem.  So it’s away I go,  to that
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  Hmm,
it looks like I may have found a decent
title just a few lines back and now after
checking I see that it has not been used
yet.  So,  it’s away we go…….

Let Your Focus

Wanting minutes
might complain
about the moments
falling rain.
Yet the rain clouds
times display
might be needed
another day.
Let your focus
not just see
trials of pain
in your history.
Look for blessings
that came around
giving views for
sight and sound.
Let your focus
be more clear
seeing what that
is so dear.
Life and heartbeats
brings to view
the light of day
God gave to you.
Let your focus
to now be seen
as God’s blessings
clear blue stream.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem.
Also I hope you enjoyed all my rambling.
I do tend to ramble don’t I hehehehehehe!
Both of the boys are in here lying in the
floor right between Judy and I.  Rocky is
lying on my chair legs.  I’m always afraid
I’ll roll over him LOL.  I did by accident
the other day,  but he wasn’t hurt.  I think
I just scared him 🙂  Maybe pinched his
ear.  But he’s gotta learn that daddy can’t
always look back to see if he’s there LOL.
My neck hurts too bad.  He’s learning.
There’s not much else to yammer about 🙂
It looks like it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you almost every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poetry and haiku.
Yeppers,  10 more poems with an added
LOL drum roll please drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrm
12.  LOL I know,  that’s a lot of poems.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like.  Now I believe it’s time once again
for me to begin my search for that off
switch that is so bad at hiding,  but not
before I wish you an awesome weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Okie dokie,  where is
that confounded off switch trying to hide
this week?  LOL I use the word hide very
loosely hehehe.  Hmmmm,  what is that
I see behind my software bag?  Could it
possibly be a monster?  LOL nope it’s
that silly off switch poking his head up
to see if I can see him.  Yeppers I see ya.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Alternate Universe

Within our world
lives many things
moments recorded
and alternate scenes.
Time’s but a second
that lives in our view
scenes as heartbeats
timeless so true.
An alternate universe
might show so clear
the sights and sounds
of our yesteryear.
Yet but a moment
of our scenery
might have been done
in ones history.
Then in the making
with moments adverse
there might be life in
an alternate universe.

A Plowed Field

With sun so bright
and clouds above
a field is seen
a farmers love.
Rows so straight
as soil awaits
the seasons time
it so elates.
A plowed field
is alive in view
amidst the days
of each anew.
The sun so bright
gives of the need
sunlight bright
for every seed.
Then the clouds
will give their yield
a summer’s day
in a plowed field.

Cookout Of Summer

Seasoned with life
with a touch of style
a cookout of summer
will make you smile.
Time in the evening
and smell of barbecue
a cookout of summer
is the best thing to do.
Cooking up burgers
and other things to eat
a cookout of summer
is a real fine treat.
Smelling the charcoal
as it wafts in the air
brings forth the season
with a barbecue flair.
A cookout of summer
is a time I perceive
a momentous journey
for passion to weave.
A time as an echo
of seasons own smile
a cookout of summer
a wonderful while.

Two Dogs Stroll

Paths in springtime
lives embrace,
two dogs stroll
and often race.
They most always
are together
strolling running
seasons weather.
Brotherly love
of four pawed lives
two dogs stroll
under sunny skies.
They go searching
high and low
finding places
they can stroll.
Seeking pathways
left and right
two dogs stroll
with their delight.

A Cloudy Scene

When troubles come
and problems grow
a cloudy scene
is sure to show.
The view of then,
might not be clear
a cloudy scene
you see and hear.
Look for peaceful
within the clouds
and find blessings
times arouse.
A cloudy scene
might be a place,
a time for prayerful
and God’s grace.
Look for hillsides
within your view
of a cloudy scene
in a sky of blue.

Walk Of Life

Our own pathways
might be laid
by some others
that they made.
The walk of life
is a story told
times remembered
young to old.
Take a journey
on your own
a walk of life
a seed you’ve sewn.
Let the lessons
fall in place
as your footsteps
you embrace.
Use the lessons
others learned
or you’ll find ones
you have earned.
The walk of life
is time to yield
found within
your journeys field.

Rest A While

When your life is
not at best
you might need to
have some rest.
Find a place
or time to seek
and rest a while
when you are weak.
Let the minutes
find your gain
as you walk with
times attain.
Rest a while
as life goes on
and let sometimes
to move along.
Then when rested
find your place
in the footsteps
daily race.
Yet when withered
times compile
take a breather
rest a while.

Autumn Dreams

Those memories
of colored leaves
are what my mind
right now perceives.
The seasons show
that comes alive
becomes as colors
low and high.
With every sight
the leaves display
my autumn dreams
come out to play.
Found as journeys
far and wide
a seasons style
an awesome ride.
With the colors
red to gold
my autumn dreams
are stories told.
The leaves become
as special scenes
the flavors of
my autumn dreams.

Rabbit’s House

A garden that’s filled
with carrots and more
will then become
as a rabbit’s store.
Free for the taking
if he isn’t seen
a home in the garden
is a rabbits cuisine.
His home is really near
as a wonderful view
the rabbit’s house
with carrots to chew.
He tends to the garden
as he then will browse
living out the days
in a rabbit’s house.

Portrait Of Love

Our boys remain
our daily joy
as they play
with each dog toy.
They run around
and smile away
seasons sun
each doggy day.
A portrait of love
we do embrace
as these two
will run and race.
They’re our boys
a gift from above
that’s now esteemed
a portrait of love.

Life Is

Scenes we see
with colorful hues
life is within
those daily views.
A flower to bloom
of yellow to gaze
life is a moment
found in our days.
Maybe a journey
of words in a book
life is the pages
timeless to look.
Points of perception
become such to see
as life is a stage
to be what will be.
A yellow flower
can give you a smile
as life is a moment
heartbeats compile.

Summer’s Sight

Passing scenes
a roads display
finds a sight
a summer’s day.
A summer’s sight
that time reveals
is on a drive
with rolling wheels.
Yellow flowers
show their view
a summer’s sight
from old to new.
Clouds all gather
finding phrase
building stories
summer’s days.
Life’s a doorway
swinging fast
showing seasons
moving past.
As were driving
down the road
summer’s sight
is Heaven’s load.

Whispering Silently

Galaxy matrix
a sight in the stars
finds many planets
that seem like ours.
Sounds as echoes
are slight as can be
planets all gather
and whisper to me.
Speaking of volumes
a scientist view
found telescopic
with our planet blue.
Saturn’s own rings
are timeless around
whirling and twirling
without not a sound.
All of the planets
become such a sight
whispering silently
deep in the night.

Just A View

A simple scene
of days gone by
displays a frame
a cloudy sky.
Maybe a barn
with cows within
a simple time
that did begin.
It’s just a view
of passing days
spoken with life
in wondrous ways.
A country mile
of timeless roads
becomes a time
that life bestows.
It’s but a scene
a time come true
that has become
but just a view.

Canvas Of Snow

Textured as pictures
that minutes remind,
time is a canvas
that many will find.
Often prismatic
as icicles hang
a wintertime scene
is not to refrain.
Look for the seconds
that canvas details
and see the moments
as it then exhales.
White snow of winter
begins its parade
a momentous dream
that Heaven has laid.
Through the mirror
of yesterdays scene,
you might remember
a December dream.
Remember the times
you saw all the glow
when you were a child
in a canvas of snow.

Stranger Worlds

Life is perception
what we realize
stars and planets
within our eyes.
Stranger worlds
that we now know
the scenic signs
our minds bestow.
The starry skies
of nights we see
are really just
our history.
Stranger worlds
we’ve realized
an age of life
that God devised.
Life of dreams
that time unfurls
is found within
the stranger worlds.

Billowy White

Sometimes a scene
is the darkest to see,
a time we have found,
a time then to be.
Yet through darkness
is billowy white,
the hopes and dreams
awaiting our sight.
Our skies might hold
abundance of rain,
the times we’ve seen
to drive us insane.
Yet as but a moment
this too shall pass,
to lose the darkness
in shadows we cast.
Giving our pathways
a much better plan,
life is a journey
we do hand in hand.
Time is a blessing
with Heaven’s delight
seen through darkness
to billowy white.

Washed Ashore

Lost in waters
found afloat
we might find
a sinking boat.
Rudders busted
and no oars
floating near
some rocky shores.
Life then beckons
for a change
time to seek
and rearrange.
Make a search
to find a plan
a better life
to understand.
Seek for God
through futures door
and don’t be
just washed ashore.

The Fishing’s Done

As life moves on
and seasons shine
ones head out
to seek a sign.
A fishing place
of timeless hue
as they sail
to sights anew.
The motor roaring
sounds of life
pushing through
just like a knife.
Cutting waters
to the place
their rods and reels
they do embrace.
But with evenings
setting sun
life’s ashore,
the fishing’s done.

Evening Speaks

Pleasurable scenery,
life on a stage
displays the minutes
the passing of age.
Seeming as shadows
our timeless becomes
words of a doorway
the bright evening sun.
Memories exploding
as blessings of time
become our photos
of an evening design.
As evening speaks
it gives many words
a blue sky about it
that its time infers.
It might remind of
a time frame within
living and breathing
as life once again.
An old barn standing
might  have a few leaks
but it’s still important
as evening speaks.

Haiku
for Jun 10,  2017

Life is like a rose
as it blooms and then it dies
to become much more.

Seasons of sunsets
display their very own view
of the end of day.

Need is a moment
that fills many perspectives
what want really is.

Length of emotions
is the vision that ones see
and their importance.

Looking passed today
could find you in confusion
for what you don’t know.

Meaningful chatter
might be discerned as useless
if ones don’t listen.

Counting the minutes
will only make them longer,
so enjoy the time.

A class act person
can often be a liar
hiding what that’s true.

Countless are the stars
as they twinkle up above
giving many dreams.

Stood in a puddle
there remains chance for a splash
with too much movement.

Lost in a rain cloud
some lightning might strike you hard,
but it too shall pass.

Visions of springtime
are often misconceptions
of reality.

The leaves of autumn
become as painters of life
that entwine colors.

Disowned relations
can become clearly perceived
that you should own up.

Truth is illusion
when the truth is not complete
filled with deception.

Within a river
flows many different views
that are well hidden.

The best of the best
is also with many flaws,
for life’s not flawless.

The length of a road
does not give its importance
for it’s how it’s viewed.

A breath of morning
displays a chance for new life
that we can find peace.

Life is importance
filled with many views to see
and some tossed away.

Birds of summertime
seek for shade within the trees
to sing many songs.

Without a heartbeat
our flesh would be without life,
but spirits live on.

We Shall See

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well to begin with it looks as though
we may have some new neighbors,  but
for how long hehehe we shall see.  We
have had people come and go and some
leave in less than a month.  So,  we shall
see LOL.  Benny and Rocky aren’t used
to neighbors and they keep barking every
time they hear them make a noise hehehe.
One of our neighbors has a little girl and
she loves our boys (Benny and Rocky) 🙂
The weather has been rather nice.  We’ve
done a few field trips with the boys.  The
bugs haven’t been too bad,  at least not
yet.  The black flies are growing abundant,
but the days we took a walk in the field
the wind was blowing pretty good and it
was keeping the flies at bay LOL.  The
boys loved it.  They were both grinning
ear to ear.  Although,  Rocky is still with
a lot of hair on him and we have tried to
give him a haircut,  but it’s hard,  being
Judy and I are not in the best of shape
to bend over and cut his hair,  so I got
on the phone and made an appointment
with a dog groomer.  Now he and Benny
will finally have decent hair cuts hehehe.
It will cost a bit,  but it’s worth it to us
to not have to hurt our backs trying to
bend over and hold them while trying
to cut their hair.  After the groomer
gets done it will be a little easier for us
to keep it trimmed.  Of course we always
let their hair grow out during the cold
winter months so to keep them warm.
Benny does love to play in the snow 🙂
Rocky is not as crazy about the snow,
but he does love to play in it with his
big little brother hehehe.  There hasn’t
been much going on around here other
than the regular,  but Judy has begun
remodeling our computer room.  She’s
ordered some shelves to put up in here
so to give us a little more room.  There
isn’t much space in here.  It’s a small
room.  No matter,  I’m sure as  Judy
gets done with it,  we’ll have a little
more space.  So,  what else is going on
at the Pearce’s Place?  Well,  not much
other than my continued writing and
Judy’s painting along with a her many
crafts hehehe.  We lead such an exciting
life huh LOL.  I’m taking the car to get
it inspected tomorrow.  I might pick us
up some donuts at Dunkin Donuts while
I’m in town 🙂 or not LOL.  We shall see.
Nope there’s not much else going on at
the Pearce’s Place.  The boys are excited
to meet our neighbors dog,  but we’re
not in a hurry about that.  They have
a BIG DOG.  Our landlord is mowing
now.  It makes it a bit hard to think.
Oh well,  life goes on.  We’re having
hot dogs right now.  I’m eating while
I’m writing.  God has been good to us as
always.  We do though have our share
of rough times,  but nothing that we
can’t make it through with God’s help.
I guess that’s all of the rambling for
now and so it’s time for me to begin my
search 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.  I think I found a
good title just a few lines back and now
after checking I see that I have not used
it yet.  So,  as Jackie Gleason would say
on the Honey Mooners,  “Away we go”.

We Shall See

Time is a moment
awaiting to be
a minute a second
that we shall see.
The future is opened
with time to begin
as we make echoes
of where all we’ve been.
Often our journey’s
will twist and turn
while we shall see
what all we will learn.
The lessons in a day
might seem very small,
but when looking back
you’ll see them all.
The things we’ve done
and left debris
will become the times
that we shall see.

There ya go.  I hope that made sense to
you.  Also I hope you enjoyed all of my
rambling hehehe.  If ya didn’t,  then at
least it pacified a moment of your life
that you would of otherwise been just
staring out into space LOL.  The mowers
are still going outside.  Making a bunch
of racket,  but I obviously managed to
write anyways LOL.   There’s not much
else to tell ya other that what I tell you
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10
more poems with of course an added
few,  9 to be exact hehehe.  So that ups
the count to 19.  There is 1 Christmas
poem in the mix.  I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there 🙂  I hope you are able to find 1
or 2 of either or both that you like.
Now, I guess it’s time for me to start
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.  Ok with that said,  where
is that infamous off switch trying
to hide this week?  Trying to hide
behind my goofy Halloween glasses
again are ya?  Might of worked,  but
the eyeballs kept moving telling me
that something must be moving them.
Yeppers,  there ya be.  Try harder
next time will ya.  Pick a new spot 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Tiny Garden

Life is flourished
times unfold,
tiny garden
stories told.
Scenic moments
fall in place
of God’s blessings
to embrace.
Tiny garden
fills the needs
from the smallest
planted seeds.
Scenes of grandeur
found so small
tiny garden
stands so tall.
Giving sustenance
breath of air
tiny garden
answers prayer.

A Winter Scene

With clouds of gray
and snow of white
a winter scene
displays its sight.
A page of wonder
from life’s storybook
a winter scene
with a shivery look.
Cold winds blowing
bring forth a day
a winter scene
with clouds of gray
It entails a vision,
a Christmassy theme
found as a picture
of a winter scene.

Message Out To Sea

Ones words might float
in a bottle of time
searching for a person
to fit in their design.
A message out to sea
of lives that live within
filling hopes and dreams
with true love to begin.
Waves of life might roll
and display times of toil,
but a message out to sea
may land on hopeful soil.
As the bottle’s floating
it might find rocky seas
as the human waves
find times of ones disease.
It is but just a morsel
of a distant point of view,
seasons filled with wonder
sought for something new.
Yet the bottle floats on
as heartbeats with a key
true life and emotion
a message out to sea.

Frozen View

A frozen lake
begins its day
keeping waters
beneath at bay.
Ice upon it
this frozen view
is found displayed
as a whitish hue.
The lake still lives
with fish below
beneath the ice
and fallen snow.
This is a moment
that’s standing still
a frozen view
that times reveal.
Winter’s concealed
the waters of blue
beneath the ice
with a frozen view.

Flavors Of Life

As a reflection
our lives might seem
timeless emotions
the past we’ve seen.
Flavors of life
are tastebuds of time
found as a moment
that seconds refine.
Times we remember
as distant memories
standing on the dock
just feeling the breeze.
Our dogs just looking
seeing reflections
flavors of life
in timeless connections.
As but a moment
a place comes alive
found as remembered
the flavors of life.

Railroad Track

A track through life
might seem to go
around the corner
to we don’t know.
It hides the journey
within its path
a railroad track
of slow and fast.
The scenes you see
might not delight,
but in time
show Heaven’s light.
God gives blessings
to travel upon
with our decisions
of right and wrong.
The moments seen
might be just time
with good and bad
the things we find.
Around the corner
of there and back
might show God’s gift
life’s railroad track.

Waters Running

Purest moments
timeless too
waters running
make the view.
Boy named Henry
finds his peace
waters running
sweet release.
Time is precious
waters pour
making timeless
days allure.
He smiles greatly
for this scene
waters running
natures stream.
Life’s fulfillment
finds a way
waters running
great display.

The Wedding Cake

A simple slice
of life’s array
can bring to life
a special day.
A cake of white
with times accord
becomes a time
for minds record.
A wedding cake
just waits its turn
for ones a slice
of time’s discern.
Two connecting
certain phase
now remembered
wedding days.
Time’s a journey
loves partake
the essence of
the wedding cake.

River Sight

Ripples melting
ice to flow
scenes becoming
melted snow.
Time is displayed
as a passion
as a moment
not old fashioned,
yet a theme
of times display
pictured as
a winter’s day.
Spring in essence
comes in view
flowing waters
oh so blue.
With the seasons
day to night
a moment finds
a river sight.

Moose Of Spring

A photograph
of timeless views
brings to life
a shadows news.
Moose of spring
of seasons fashion
displays signs
of their reaction.
A picture showing
how they are
taken from
a place so far.
Moose of spring
just seek to find
taste of leaves
now on their mind.
A mere memory
falls in place
moose of spring
a scenic taste.

Abstract Barbecue

Found on a day
of summertime
there are so many
an abstract mind.
Cooking for plenty
on a summery day
dogs and burgers
a seasonal way.
A time in the sun
with barbecue grill
becomes as a time
for tummies to fill.
It’s not the plans
for things to do,
but becomes an
abstract barbecue.

Clouds Of  A Day

Hills in the distance
might form in a scene
while clouds float by
so sweet and serene.
A little house standing
might enhance the view
as the clouds of a day
just float thereunto.
A peaceful little pond
might ripple its words
as reflections of time
with a passing of birds.
The trees might grow
to display such a sight
forming some shading
from moments sunlight.
The grasses of green
might also be found
in the clouds of a day
as you look all around.
Life is a journey
with an awesome display
with the mere formations
of clouds of a day.

Our Faded Memories

Those times in the past
that we found so alive
are now just a sparkle
that is trying to survive.
Maybe in a painting
or a picture we took,
our faded memories
inquire another look.
The scenes we recall
might not of been great,
but as time is passing
they shine of the date.
A moment in our lives
cooking on a old grill
or camping in a scene
you now wish to feel.
Our faded memories
are stories times tell
that a picture or painting
displays oh so well.

Ripples Of Time

Scenes such as water
display such a sight,
ripples reflecting
the suns shining light.
Life is a portion
of ripples we see
some then as timeless
within you and me.
We’re but a moment,
a page to discern,
found in the ripples
of candles to burn.
Our wicks are often
lit on both ends,
displaying ripples
that our life transcends.
Truth of our findings
might surely be seen
found in the ripples
we thought as a dream.
Seen in the waters
of ripples of time
might be the pathways
we sought hard to find.

Taste Of Spring

Scents of Heaven
found as gold
flowers blooming
are foretold.
A taste of spring
in such detail
becomes blessings
life’s set sail.
God’s Own beauty
finds a way
to seep on through
the clouds of gray.
A taste of spring
becomes as light
tasted with our
day and night.
Sights of beauty
angels sing
this is called
a taste of spring.

Winter’s View

A sight of life
in winter’s days
becomes sights
of Godly phase.
With the essence
white as snow
winter’s view
is Heaven’s show.
Life is counted
snowflakes fall
a time sublime
of winter’s call.
A sight so sweet
a tasty dream
ones will make as
snow ice cream.
Snowy meadows
pure and true.
This is surely
a winter’s view.

Snoopy’s Barbecue

Enjoying the summer
as waves roll in
is Snoopy the dog
and his little friend.
They’re barbecuing
beside the sea
on a summer’s day
with summer’s breeze.
Snoopy’s relaxing
lying on the ground
listening to the waves
a serenading sound.
His friend Woodstock
is also at best
lying by the sea
in his little bitty nest.
This is a scene
a real magical view
the sight of the day
of Snoopy’s barbecue.

Bridge To Heaven

Heaven’s doorway
might not be clear
a bridge of time
that is so sincere.
Our view right now
might miss the scene
the bridge to Heaven
right by a stream.
As time goes by
you will partake
the sight of truth
for Heaven’s sake.
The bridge to Heaven
a timeless view
friends and family
that went before you.
Even loving pets
as your own family
the bridge to Heaven
will give you to see.

Clouds Of Perception

Green grass of nature
and clouds in the sky
give forth perception
of life that will fly.
Conceived decisions
bring forth a new view
clouds of perception
in a deep sky of blue.
Life is imagined
as a time that we see
just like as clockwork
we sometimes agree.
There’s many minutes
that form in the day
clouds of perception
display as they may.
They might evade us
as flowers will bloom
as stages of beauty
are found before noon.
Seasons of grandeur
are formed in the mind
gifts that we’ve noticed
that God gave mankind.

Haiku
for Jun 1,  2017

Life is a story
that is written in time
as minutes accrue.

Finding a true friend
might need you to look within
and not what’s displayed.

Lost in liars worlds
will leave you feeling empty,
for life was a lie.

Beyond what we see
might be a reality
that is well hidden.

The scenes in time frames
can often become shadows
of our yesterdays.

A flower is life
as it struggles to blossom
despite the weather.

Autumn awaits us
while spring and summer preside
within their seasons.

Lost in a whirlwind
life might seem as confusion,
but peace is the eye.

Midmorning shadows
display their afterimage
in our memories.

Change is perception
and how we view the moments,
for choice will create.

Turnstiles of springtime
open up flourishing life
in many colors.

Butterflies flutter
from caterpillars to fly
as changes in spring.

A kite that’s flying
needs the wind to continue
or it falls to Earth.

Listening to life
you will hear a few heartbeats
maybe as a breeze.

A seasons journey
begins with a decision
to change or to not.

Violets colors
are the beauty of springtime
that’s found growing wild.

Pictured memories
bring to life the things we thought
that we now can’t do.

Knowing someone’s past
does not mean that you know them,
for they may have changed.

Various people
live their lives in ignorance
for they have not learned.

The ways of many
does not make others the same,
for we are unique.

Darkness can cause fear,
due to the things you can’t see,
but calmness can win.

A forest of trees
can become a lonely place
for many so small.
