Hello my friends

It’s snowing big time outside right now
and it looks like we’ve already gotten a
foot or so to add with what we already
had LOL.  Yep,  it looks like I might
have to go out and use our snow blower
and or snow shovel to clear out places
for our boys to go potty.  Their little
legs aren’t that tall LOL.  so onwards
with my rambling.  Judy just got up
and joined the boys and I.  Right now
it is 6 F degrees outside and the high
for today is supposed to be 16 F,  so
it looks like Judy and I will be staying
in here most of the day.  I might go
outside to take a few pictures when I
do a little snow blowing.  For those
of you in the south that don’t know
what a snow blower is.  It’s a piece of
equipment that I push through the
snow and it tosses the snow many feet
away.  It clears a 13 inch path with
each passing.  We have a snow blower
and a snow shovel which are both 40
volts battery operated.  I also from
time to time have to resort to using
the manual snow shovel,  but not too
often 🙂  By the looks of things I may
have to do some snow blowing soon,
because the boys might need to go
out and potty real soon.  I bet they
had a bit of trouble going out when
I let them out earlier today hehehe.
LOL when I do,  I’ll let them come
out with me.  Rocky loves the snow
blower.  He gets right in front of it
and wants me to blow snow on him.
Silly boy hahaha.  Benny just likes
to watch LOL.  We’ve got some silly
boys,  but we love them.  They do
keep us entertained.  I have been
busy writing more poetry pictures
and now I have a 106 for book 10
and only need 54 more before I can
begin working on the book.  Yes,
I do stay busy.  Though I do believe
that I will stop at volume 10 and
then begin another project such as
creating a Christmas poetry picture
book and poetry painting book or
2 🙂  I might in the far future create
a continuance of the other with a
volume 11 or whatever,  but that is
not something I will do any time
soon LOL.  Well,  I decided to go
ahead and do some snow blowing,
so my fingers are thawing now LOL.
The boys wanted to come out with
me and Rocky just had to run and
get in front of the snow blower 🙂
He got pounded hehehe.  He soon
had enough and went up under the
porch to watch as Benny watched
me from a distance.  I had snow
all over me being the wind and all
blew the snow back in my face LOL.
Judy came out with us and took a
few pictures of me snow blowing.
She came out too late to catch a
view of Rocky getting snow blown,
but she got a picture of Benny as
he was standing right behind me
watching hehehe.  In any case the
job is done,  at least for a little while,
being I know I’ll have to go and do
it again real soon.  The snows still
coming down pretty heavy and yes
I love it.  I guess I wouldn’t love it
quite as much if Judy or I had to go
to work and I had to dig out the car
and all,  but still,  our landlord does
our driveway for us or else he pays
somebody to do it.  So I don’t have
to do the whole driveway,  thank
God 🙂  That was part of the deal for
us moving here.  He’s pretty good
about making sure that we’re OK.
He is sort of forgetful at times,   but
hey,  I am too LOL.  I bet if the guy
waits too long to plow our driveway,
he’ll have to do kind of like I did with
the snow blower,  a little at a time 🙂
I had to shave off the upper layer and
make another pass,  being our snow
blower only does 8 inches at a time.
Many cases I had to make 3 passes.
I just stopped and walked out to the
road to check on our mailbox and
yeppers,  it’s been pounded by the
county road snow plows again LOL.
It’s still up,  but leaning quite a bit.
It’s a good thing I went to check on
it because the lid was opened on it
and it was filling up with snow.  I
took a few pictures there and back.
Hahaha Benny and Rocky wanted
to come out with me and the first
thing Rocky did when he saw all of
my clearing was to go pee and then
him and Benny watched me walk to
the road.  When I came back I saw
that Benny was trudging through
the snow where I had walked and
he was just tickled pink to see me.
Rocky was poking his head up over
the snow watching me as well LOL.
God has been good to us.  Judy
and I have all that we need.  Maybe
not our wants,  but our needs.  We
do enjoy these little boys that run
amongst us.  It’s sad that their life
span is so short,  but we have no
control over that.  We’re thankful
for the time that we have with them.
Thank You God for all of the many
blessings that you have given us and
all that we have yet to of received.
Now I believe it’s time to begin my
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 the lil
place of my recollection that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  It
looks as though I may of stumbled
upon a decent title about a quarter
of a way down from the beginning
of my rambling and it seems that
I have not used it as of yet,  so used
it shall be today.  Here goes…

Entertained

The lives we lead
might not be great,
but seen by many
they might debate.
We have the clouds
to watch each day
and sky above
to kneel and pray.
We’ve got a heart
with a given beat
as time goes by
we sit and eat.
So many minutes
we’re entertained
by the moments
that seconds attained.
Though we might
not see the view
as entertainment
for me and you.
Yet if we remember
a time far away
as us ourselves
in a different way.
Building sandcastles
or snowmen by few
we were entertained
with things we’d do.
God gives choices
to choose our path
sometimes misguided
from times of wrath.
The loss of loved ones
or gain of sorrow
begins a turnstile
to a sad tomorrow,
but if we don’t allow
that time to live
we can find blessings
to share and give.
Don’t let boredom
to be just attained,
let God’s blessings
keep you entertained.

There ya go 🙂   I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even enjoyed all of
my rambling hehehe.  It’s getting a
little warmer LOL.  It’s 10 F degrees
now 🙂  We’re expecting another 5
to 8 inches of snow tonight hehehe.
I love the snow.   I have no clue to
why some people live up here,  being
it seems all they ever do is complain
about it.  I didn’t care for it near
as much as I do now while Judy was
working,  because that meant for me
to have to dig out our car in the
worst of times LOL,  but even then
I would play in the snow while I was
shoveling 🙂  Hey,  I’m a Texan and
I had never seen this much snow 🙂
Well it’s time for me to be telling
you what I tell you every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,
but no extras for you this week.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all
of the haiku lovers out there.  I
hope you can find 1 or 2 of either
or both that you like.  So now
it is time to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but
not before I wish you a peaceful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now
where can that ornery off switch be
trying to hide this week?  Hmmmm,
I think I see my nose spray wobbling
and unless the house is shaking,  it
should not be LOL.  I see ya you lil
varmint.  Maybe if you’d try staying
still and not doing a little nervous
dance all the time,  I might not find
you so freaking easy hehehe,  but then
again that would make it hard on me
finishing my journal,  so continue on.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Flight Through Eve

The day finds end
within a setting sun
as evening begins
as time on the run,
An evening flight
as times transpose
begins its quest
as a budding rose.
The sky might be
as a sudden dream
a timeless stage
as a raging stream.
With ins and outs
of a daily view
a flight through eve
might envelop you.
Becoming alive
as time fades away
on a mere journey
for another day.
We each have time
to do what we will
to either take heed
or roll down a hill.
As so many stories
are just a fish tale
planted in minds
if life’s not so well.
Our lives might be
hard to perceive
as the end of day
a flight through eve.

Rowing Through Life

Found as a portal
time pours on through
while we are rowing
the best we can do.
Each of us has burdens
through life in a way,
but some may not seem
so bad to display.
Yet we do not know
how a person is inside
as oars may be broken
that time has applied.
Their time may be torn,
but might not be clear
showing only smiles
that aren’t so sincere.
Rowing through life
in a boat of survival
seeking for peaceful
a point of their arrival.
The waters might rush
with currents so great
that carry them on
to an untimely fate.
So don’t be so quick
to judge how ones row,
for there may be much
that you don’t know.
They might be filled
with pain and strife
doing the best they can
rowing through life.

Silky Sky

A sky of blue
with clouds weaved in
displays a view
that times transcend.
Seeming so silky
as clouds drift on by
becoming a painting
that times multiply.
Within the artwork
is a heavenly view
with clouds woven in
a deep sky of blue.
It becomes as a web
for times to explore
as the sky opens up
like a heavenly door.
God gives the beauty
for us to define
as we look each day
for a peaceful mind.
Artwork is changing
as clouds drift away
defining another sight
of yet another day.
Yes life can be good
if we look on beyond
the sadness and grief
for ones that are gone.
Look to the heavens
and find a new high
as the joy then within
the clouds silky sky.

The Darkness

Just like a shadow
the night shines through
becoming the darkness
to envelop you.
It can enhance fear
as the darkness begins
displaying the shadows
of time and again.
Seeming as a doorway
that time opens wide
to allow what all we fear
to come and reside.
Don’t let the darkness
to fill you with fear,
for its only power
is what may appear.
A branch or an item
might show a scary sight,
but it’s only because of
shadows in the night.
The night light if any
may form in your mind
a scene in the darkness
real fearful to find.
Yet so many times
what we see is just fear,
for in the darkness
we cannot see clear.

Traces of Time

Some days discovered
are as of the past
retracing footsteps
as shadows they cast.
Traces of ventures
that timeless discovers
can become doorways
that our life uncovers.
Some as windows
that we look through
and others may be
just living in you.
The traces of time
that become our glance
might be the best times
life’s song and dance.
Maybe with colorful
leaves shining bright
found in the traces
of history’s light.
The sunshine of times
might fall into place
and form in your mind
a sign of a trace.
Designs you remember
from winter to spring
might then embellish
a time which to sing.
Then within summer
and essence of fall
the traces of time
are designed over all.

Defining Blooms

Flowers of life
become as a scene
often as moments
just but a thing.
Many look away
and don’t ever see
defining blooms
in their history.
Some only see
a passing view
a wanted array
a wish to be true.
Yet as a blossom
time is a rose
blooming colors
sought to expose.
Not seeing clear
the scenes of time
 might be hard
for ones to define.
Defining blooms
of our yesterdays
might only see
the darkest grays.
So look beyond
your own misery
and see the sights
God’s given free.
Such as flowers
a moment attunes
found as blessings
defining blooms.

Storms Begin

Life’s a whirlwind
times explore
as storms come in
our life’s front door.
Storms are found
as time consumes
the scenes we see
with bitter fumes.
The gray skies show
a chance for rain
with some lightning
to then attain.
We might not see
the true blue skies
because of the ways
we might surmise.
For so many times
we choose our sights
searching for storms
in brightest lights.
Don’t let your mind
to drown in fears
found in illusions
your doubt adheres.
Look for rainbows
in storms of time
and formulate peace
within your mind.
For often good times
will enter within
found in rain clouds
when storms begin.

Little Bird

When some worries
find your mind
search the sky
from time to time.
You might see
a bird in flight
against the wind
an endless fight.
Yet it continues
to do what it will
the best it can
to surely fulfill.
Take in that sight
with a grasp on life
there’ll be struggles
there’ll be strife.
Yet if you strive on
and don’t give in
you’ll find favor
within the wind.
For with struggles
burdens of time,
stronger you’ll be
with a wiser mind.
Surely the lessons
will often be great
teaching us daily
finding our fate.
But still the vision
of hopeful inferred
can be a lesson
from a little bird.

River’s Smile

Winter’s journey
shows a view
a smiling river
thereunto.
It flows onwards
with its quest
smiling greatly
without rest.
The river’s smile
is winter’s ways
showing seasons
it displays.
We pass it often
and look upon
that great smile
just like a song.
For its smile
is catchy too
reflecting back
at me and you.
Life’s a journey
that proceeds
planting smiles
as daily seeds.
Time becomes as
our reflections
on this river’s
many directions.
The river’s path
shows its smile
snow of winter
to compile.
It flows onwards
to entice
oh so often
under ice.
It breathes water
with each mile
to show its teeth
a river’s smile.

Passing Phase

Words reflections
found in things
passing ventures
many scenes
become doorways
sights to see
a passing phase
of history.
Like a barn
on a country road
life displays
its time’s abode.
Weathered scenes
of life’s delight
a passing phase
of day and night.
You might see
a distant hill
a time in life
that does fulfill.
It might give hope
for better things
as remembered
rushing streams.
A moment might
become alive
a time and place
to now survive.
A passing phase
that surely shines
of the passed days
wondrous times.
You might even
see a fence
a time of life
of white intense.
The sight might be
remembered days
of your past
and passing phase.

Haiku
for Jan 19,  2019

Time is illusion
when hurry and want unite
creating each day.

Discerning flowers
might choose the wrong aromas
for some really stink.

The hills of today
are what we thought as mountains
that we saw before.

Often our burdens
are only the sands of time
with worry’s profile.

When left with choices
now might look impossible,
but hope lives with God.

Beyond the starlight
the imagination grows
thinking of what if.

Time gives us stories
as the minutes pass us by
leaving memories.

The quest of a bee
is of a seasonal flight
gathering pollen.

Living with sadness
and not seeking happiness
cannot move ahead.

Within emotion
there is silence that we need
to give us balance.

Leaning too heavy
on ones when you are in need
could push them away.

Flowers are flowers
and people are just people
that are different.

We are the seasons
as the days become flowers
awaiting to bloom.

Losing direction
does not mean there is no chance,
if you turn around.

The butterfly’s path
begins as a caterpillar
without any wings.

A snowflakes lifespan
relies on the atmosphere
for it’s just water.

Links to survival
are found in our abilities
to learn and to grow.

Yesterdays stories
might be tomorrows visions
that ones dreamed about.

The past is the past
for it cannot live today,
because we have changed.

Some see the darkness
as but only less of light
and others find fright.

Thinking too deeply
can cause loss of perception,
so take a breather.

Our hearts can guide us
into many disasters,
so think with your head.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another cold week up here in
the winter wonderland.  We’ve gotten a
bit more snow and it seems that all of
the reflectors that I put on our mailbox
did not prevent it from being hit by the
snowplows.  I’ve gotta go out today and
see if I can fix it.  I just had a thought
and called our landlord and he said he’d
go and fix it.  So,  that should take care
of that,  HOPEFULLY 🙂  So what else
is going on around the Pearce’s Place?
Well my fingers are doing better and get
this LOL,  I went to the doctor and had
x rays done last Saturday and they did
not call me to tell me about them until
yesterday evening (Saturday) hahahaha.
She said,  there isn’t anything broken
and I said,  I kind of figured that out
as I can bend them now,  but my little
finger (pinky) is still sore and I cannot
bend it fully, but I am guessing that in
time that will get better.  She asked me
if the brace did any good and I said,
LOL you mean the wrist brace you put
on my arm?  I took that off the minute
I got out to the car,  because it wasn’t
even touching my fingers and my wrist
wasn’t hurt in the fall.  She said that’s
good.  LOL Even Judy when I got in
the car had a little giggle looking at
the brace with my fingers sticking out.
Anyways,  next topic.  It got down to
0 last night so we had to leave the hot
water dripping to keep the water from
freezing.  We only have to do that in
the bathroom because that’s where
 the hot water heater is.  No need to
let the water drip elsewhere.  I have
the cabinet under the faucets in the
spare room opened so that the heat
from the furnace can get to it and so
that prevents it from freezing.  I may
be an old Texan,  but I have learned
how to live up here and take care of
things.  Of course I function better
in the cold than I do in the heat LOL,
so this is where I’ve needed to be all
along hehehe.  Now if we could just
get the snowplows to cease and desist
plowing over our mailbox LOL.  It
looks as though that is not going to
happen though.  Oh well,  it’s not
like it’s the end of the world.  It’s a
bright and sunny day today,  but the
high for today is supposed to be 13 F
which is what it is at this very moment.
It’s supposed to be -12 F by tomorrow
morning,  so the water shall drip on.
The boys are in here with me.  Judy’s
still asleep.  We stay up late being we
are both night owls.  LOL when I say
we stay up late,  I mean until around
4 and 5 AM.  I used to work nights
and those hours have stuck with me.
Judy also used to work nights so we
both have gotten used to staying up
all night and going to bed around 4
or 5 AM or somewhere thereabouts.
We watch game shows and then we
watch our favorite cartoons until we
are ready to go to sleep.  Life is good.
We have our fair share of struggles
and all,  but for the most part,  we’re
happy and life is good.  God looks
after us protecting us and guiding us
as well as our many angels that are
with us always.  Thank You God for
all that You have done for us and
all that You will do.  Now I believe
it is time for me to begin my search
back through all that I’ve written here
to see if I can find me a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title for
today’s brand new poem.  So,  it’s
away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may
have found a decent title just about
a third of way into my rambling and
now to see if I have used it before.
Nope it hasn’t been used yet,  but
used it shall be today 🙂 Here goes…

A Little Giggle

With just a laugh
a time or two
can change a phase
of sad and blue.
A little giggle
that ones release
can display
a moments peace.
Use some laughter
to find a place
as a reflection
a smiling face.
Don’t let sadness
to live and breathe
find a giggle
to believe.
For there’s many
that need a smile
a little giggle
a laughing while.
So find laughter
when you feel blue
and in might help
some others too.

There ya go.  LOL,  I was thinking of
a video that I saw on Facebook where
a guy was on a subway or something
and he was looking at his laptop PC
and just began laughing and then soon
everyone on the ride was laughing and
smiling.  Sometimes,  all a smile needs
is a spark.  So,  Judy just walked in.
Now the boys can pester her hehehehe.
I gave them their morning treat when
I came in here and they joined me,
but they were wanting a treat from
her as well 🙂  We’ve got 2 little pigs 🙂
The boys have dried dog food in a
pan on the floor,  so they’re OK 🙂
I think they just like the attention as
well as the treats LOL,  but I refuse
to give them a treat every time they
want one hahaha.  Well,  that’s about
all I have for ya other than what I tell
you every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yep,
10 more poems,  no extras or of the
Christmas array.  I also once again
wrote 22 haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find
1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
Now,  I do believe it is time for me
begin searching for that hardly elusive
 off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most peaceful weekend or whatever’s
left of it and truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now,  where can that freaking
off switch be hiding this week?  Hmm,
searching high and low.There ya are
you little whippersnapper.  I see you
have found a new spot to hide,  but
not the greatest hahaha.  Hiding under
my caps that are sitting on the shelf
right beside me would of worked if you
hadn’t of started a landslide (capslide).
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Home and Mind

Life has beginnings
some timeless true,
but some may seem
as an image of you.
Yet as a doorway
opens your mind
there are beginnings
found time to time.
For in our homes
the walls might show
pictures hanging
high and Low.
Home and mind
is a place to see
a heartbeat beating
through history.
For walls might show
the best design
found in essence of
home and mind.

Life Is A Flower

The most important
days we may see
might be a flower
within you and me.
A flower blooming
displaying so true
the essence of life
in me and in you.
Time gives chances
for our show and tell
as flowers blooming
in hopes to prevail.
Telling of springtime
in view of a day
blossoming flowers
in a magical way.
The links to moments
that many unite
flowers displaying
as daylight and night.
Different opinions
is what so many see
as ones may look
at you and at me.
Life is a flower
that blooms desire
scented as seconds
of heartbeats afire.
God gives chances
to surely fulfill
as life is a flower
with love to instill.

Still But Moving

Need of a motion
to take in control
time may seem still
as moments unfold.
Just like the waters
of a lake or stream
still but moving
yet often unseen.
Life is momentum
as waters will flow
to take us places
found to and fro.
Still but moving
as minds travel on
creating ventures
dusk unto dawn.
Doorways open
to let in a view
still but moving
to carry us through.
Allow for dreams
to give you a ride
lifetimes counted
you carry inside.
A pond or a lake
might be a mirror
reflecting yourself
seen a bit clearer.
Don’t let weakness
to hold you back,
be still but moving
as lifetimes unpack.

Peace Becoming

Trials of life
in a pond of views
can become times
we wish to refuse.
Not wanting to see
the ripples in life
essence of waters
moments of strife.
Flowing so freely
time is a place
many are choosing
to hide their face.
Yet as a window
time can be seen
as peace becoming
essence of dream.
Pouring as a life
flowing as a way
to the beginnings
of a brand new day.
Peace becoming
a moment in time
found as perspective
within your mind.
Allow the waters
of your memories
to then awaken
the distant seas.
Sounding as music
a guitar strumming
your life can be
as peace becoming.

When Heaven Calls

A wintertime’s day
with snow all around
Heaven’s displaying
its sight to be found.
White as its passion
some scenes come alive
whispering voices
for a time to arrive.
When Heaven calls me
my heart will be full
filled with the essence
of strength to refuel.
For as God’s creation
life billows a scene
when Heaven calls me
and I hear angels sing.
Time is but a moment
that brings about views
sometimes regretful
with choices we choose.
Look beyond sadness
and find thankfulness
for all of the blessings
of more or of less.
For even the smallest
of blessings in time
can become larger
in another design.
So don’t just focus
on all of the wrong
for when Heaven calls
it’ll be just a song.

Wonderland

Often our shadows
come alive in the snow
with winter’s stories
that grow and grow.
Scenic as glimmers
of lifetimes so grand
time becomes stories
of a snow wonderland.
Each scene is created
by snowflakes that fall
landing and compiling
to most surely enthrall.
Seeming so magical
as it lands to become
a wonderland scene
beneath winters sun.
Shadows of amazement
are as winter’s stage
designed for a moment
to last age to age.
Becoming as memoirs
of stories of time
while ones will listen
to create in their mind.
A wonderland voyage
through now and again
becomes as a place
to once again begin.
A time you remember
with snow in your hand
might just be a time
of a winter wonderland.

Memory Lane

Driving down tomorrow
on yesterday’s path
finds times today
life moving too fast.
Recalling a moment
with a past day’s sun
can create a doorway
to new days begun.
Driving down pathways
of scenic survival
might display the times
or yesterdays arrival.
Showing how beginnings
together might unite
with what that’s passed
to create another sight.
Allow your wheels to roll
down the road of style
syncing life’s tomorrows
with a hopeful smile.
Look beyond sadness
and find a view to see
maybe as a moment
within your memory.
A time now as shadows
that helps you through
as you roll onwards
in life thereunto.
Those days you remember
that moments did attain
bringing forth gladness
on down memory lane.

Colors Of Style

Scented of autumn
many will remember
the colors of October
along with November.
The colorful leaves
begin their parade
syncing with minutes
as moments inlayed.
Time is but a journey
that displays a view
sometimes rainbows
or the morning dew.
The colors of style
are a scented array
often with the aromas
of April and May.
We might only see
what moments allow
as the time passes by
leaving us in a cloud.
Often in the distance
there might be more
the colors of style
for us to explore.
Those scenes might be
of an ocean or lake
or maybe some trees
for eyes to partake.
Yet in the meantime
search for a while
timeless perception
of the colors of style.

Planted Seeds

Life’s a garden
high and low
planted daily
sure to grow.
Some are found
as only weeds
in our gardens
dirty deeds.
Yet some flowers
will then bloom
if we will then
give them room.
Future beauty
needs some care
planted seeds
of here to there
So take heed
with every day
and plant seeds
a fruitful way.
For as time goes
dirty deeds
are from careless
planted seeds.

Passing of Clouds

As a story is written
the words might tell
the times that we find
in the future so well.
The passing of clouds
and blue sky above
the future is hopeful
and filled full of love.
Times remembered
might seem so gray
as clouds passing by
from day unto day.
The seasons we see
as an ocean of style
may have conclusions
with time to compile.
So many moments
have hopeful within
if we’ll look inwards
with chance to begin.
A firm grasp on life
with a positive seed
can plant a blessing
for things to succeed.
Time can be tricky
as it can cast a spell
creating hopelessness
that our times foretell.
Yet with a little prayer
and passing of clouds
your life can elude
the delusional shrouds.

Haiku
for Jan 12,  2019

Amidst ones thinking
a thought might be eluding
due to too much stress.

Living on the edge
can become a dead end road
if you fall wrongly.

Yesterday’s follies
could become today’s lessons
if we don’t forget.

The stress of hardship
can be tools to help us grow
if we learn a path.

A snowflake falling
has no clue where it will land,
but that it will land.

Looking for heartbeats
where only emptiness lives
creates loneliness.

Summertime’s flowers
start their slumber in autumn
to sleep through winter.

The weather changes
as life’s personalities
changing their rhythm.

In search of springtime
some never see the beauty
that winter provides.

 Memories of life
are created as mirrors
reflecting within.

Sought after choices
that are not clearly thought out
could find disaster.

Playing hide and seek
can become monotonous
if no one seeks.

The flowers of change
are as beauty that blossoms
creating seasons.

Heaven holds much peace
while our journeys all unfold
with numbers counted.

Blindsided attacks
on the structures of our life
might make us stronger.

We are as the leaves
that fall from trees in autumn
for we each will pass.

Whirring of the wind
speaks volumes of perspective
that time will display.

Shadows of ourselves
are as glimmers reflections
showing where we’ve been.

Hazards of minutes
live within forgetfulness
as they’re repeated.

Morning brings sunshine
as nighttime brings many stars
that are of the same.

The need of many
is thought to outweigh the few,
but greed becomes need.

Living without sight
only hearing what ones say
can be hindering.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you had a safe New Years.  We
sort of forgot about it as we just went on
with our same old same old until about
2 AM and I said hey Judy,  Happy New
Year 🙂  Not much has gone on here at the
Pearce’s Place.  I though have had a few
episodes of signing my poems 2018 and
having to go back and change the date 🙂
That’s happened just a couple of times.
I imagine I’ll do it a few more times until
the year 2019 sticks in my brain hehehe.
It has snowed a few times in the last few
days and we might get a bit of snow today
as well as throughout the week.  The snow
season is locked and loaded and I am sure
that it will continue to snow until March
and April as it has every year that I have
lived up here.  It’s a good thing 🙂 because
I love snow.  Although I hate it when it
starts melting and refreezing turning into
ice making it difficult to walk which gets
into another subject.  I slipped and fail
again Friday morning when I went out
in my HOUSE SHOES to take pictures of
the snow being that my house shoes have
no traction whatsoever LOL.  I had my
camera in my right hand and managed
to save it,  but my left hand caught the
proverbial Hell of the fall and I might of
broken my fingers,  but I won’t know
for sure until tomorrow when someone
reads the x-rays.  I didn’t think nothing
was wrong until most of my fingers began
to swell and turn black and blue,  so I
did not go to the doctor until Saturday
and then went to ER to have my hand
x-rayed.  We live in a small town and
there is nobody there to read the x-rays
on the weekends.  So at the moment I
only have use of my index finger on my
left hand which makes it rather hard to
type LOL.  Judy took me to the walk in
clinic in Houlton and the NP LOL get
this,  put a wrist brace on my arm.  I
looked and said,  now tell me how that
will help my fingers.  She said,  “It
will keep your fingers unable to move
so they won’t be hurt further”  and I
said,  “Look,  there are my fingers
and the brace is not doing nothing for
them LOL”  No matter,  when I got
out to the car,  I took the consarned
ace bandage and brace off.  LOL even
Judy thought the brace was stupid 🙂
Anyways,  I’ve been taking Ibuprofen
and the swelling has gone down a bit.
I’m a tough old codger and I’ll survive.
I’ve had worse things happen to me
in the past LOL.  So,  what else is there
to talk about?  Well,  Judy at this very
moment is fixing us some omelets for
our breakfast.  She just now brought in
the food,  so I’m gonna stop here for
a moment and eat………..eating………..
Done.  Judy decided to scramble the
eggs and fix some home fries to go with
them 🙂  Very tasty.  So it’s back to my
rambling.  I don’t have much else to
talk about.  Our little home  in the
country is still a peaceful place.  God
is still watching over us along with
many angels.  Yes I may stumble and
fall ever so often,  but my soul stands
firm in the hands of God.  So now I
believe it’s time for me to look 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.  And 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 fairly decent title just
a few lines back and now after checking
I see that it has not been used as of yet,
so used it shall be today.  Here goes…

Our Little Home

When walls stand tall
or maybe a time
our little home
is a moment’s mind.
Standing in structure
love filled and true
our little home
each day is anew.
Stood in perception
stood with a while
our little home
has love to compile.
Found in a heartbeat
these walls never fail,
our little home
is great in detail.
You can be also
protected in time
as our little home
within your own mind.
Time is but a factor
that brings into view
our little home
that you can live too.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even understood it.  I also
hope you enjoyed my rambling.  Yes I
know I tend to drift in my topics hehehe.
Anyways,  it’s been a good day and I am
full 🙂  Judy and I are waiting to watch
one of our favorite weekly programs this
evening and it is God Friended Me.  We
love to watch this.  It’s about an atheist
that is sent many requests from God
on Facebook and it sends him and his
coworkers to help many people in need
while him and his working friends are
busy to try and find out who is actually
responsible for the busy God account.
  Anyways,  if you get a chance,  watch
it.  You might like it as well.  We have
a few other TV programs we like to
watch.  Judy and I enjoy watching TV
together being we’re interested in most
of the same type programs 🙂  It was
an act of God that put us together 🙂
So I guess I have told you all there
is to tell other than of course what I
tell you every week which is I wrote
some more poems and haiku hehehe.
Yeppers,  10 more poems and none of
them are Christmas related and I also
once again wrote 22 haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like.  Now I believe it’s time for me to
begin my search for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you
an enjoyable weekend or whatever’s
left of it and a truly blessings filled
week.  Now,  to find that off switch 🙂
Hmmmm,  where oh where can it be
that silly thing that’s hiding from me.
LOL I see ya.  right behind my box
of tissues.  That might of been a good
hiding spot if in fact you were not
tipping the box being the box is not
full LOL.  Try harder next week OK.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Shrouded Life

Clouds as windows
open views
a shrouded life
of daily news.
Scenes may uncover
a new days sight
with the essence of
a day and night.
A cloudy day
might hide the sun
just like a shroud
of said and done.
A certain view
might then expose
a shrouded life
a moment chose.
Maybe as bales
of hay defined
as life and times
within the mind.
Some scenic sights
that our eyes see
might be shrouded
in misery.
So look beyond
a clouded sky
and see the beauty
as time flies by.
For as the wind
of timeless views
a shrouded life
is choice to choose.

New Limerick Lullaby

Lost in a moment
a dream seems to dance
bringing forth echoes
of all it enchants.
Colorful flowers
as a story to tell
become as the passion
of a wishing well.
A dream shows the living
as flowers will bloom
while singing a lullaby
of the essence of June.
Time is recorded
in the mind of a day
as a magical moment
where the time falls away.
Leaving just a dream
as a lullaby song
sung by the flowers
as time moves along.
Timid is the season
as it shows us a sight
shining in the daytime
and dreamed in the night.
The story’s well written
as a dream in the sky
found as a perspective
a New Limerick lullaby.

Within The Fog

Thoughts are hidden
inside of our mind
when sleep is voided
from time to time.
Foggy perspective
as scenes sort of gray
become as a dream
of another time’s day.
Life is a doorway
we each walk through
to be who we are
and to do what we do.
Some are as shadows
of others that we see
their life may be a fog
as branches of a tree.
Don’t become a scene
of a timeless array
that’s found in a fog
of another time’s day.
For when the chapters
of fog lift from view
you’ll be exposed
with all that you do.
So,  the next time fog
comes into your shore
look on beyond it
for life to explore.
Deep within the fog
there may be good
just waiting to be seen
or be understood.

Looking Around

Sights and sounds
that pass us by
could become
a sight to sigh.
To sit and ponder
a dream come true
as life moves on
from old to new.
A country road
with much to find
goes on and on
a journey’s mind.
Looking around
at sights to see
the road displays
some times for free.
Some distant hills
of rolling scenes
might have hidden
rivers and streams.
The clouds above
may hold some rain
within minutes
of time to attain.
Time might become
an endless view
as minutes tick on
with a magical hue.
Thank God for times
He gave you and me
when looking around
from sea to sea.

Winter’s Splendor

The passing veils
of evenings sun
brings in tune
what has begun.
Winter’s splendor
times perceive
are with blessings
to believe.
Scenes as heaven
found on Earth
timeless sights
unfathomed worth.
Light of life
displays with love
a sky of beauty
from Heaven above.
Winter’s splendor
comes in tune
with the times
so many swoon.
A snowy stage
with essence found
winter’s splendor
sights and sound.
Heavenly morsels
of love so true
fill our cups
with things to view.
Many times pass us
leaving a gaze
of winter’s splendor
and magical ways.

Flowing

Through a dream
waters pour
times begin
a scenic tour.
Flowing growing
life aware
bringing portions
with a flair.
We are waters
pouring through
found as rivers
timeless too.
Often dreamers
will begin
flowing seasons
to transcend.
Some will flow
as tranquil times
and some others
crashing minds.
Turbulent waters
flowing drives
over river rocks
sharp as knives.
Time’s perception
becomes wet
for the things
we can’t forget.
Flowing seconds
turn to days
as our waters
changing phase.
Let your waters
surely find
all your anger
left behind.
Leaving peaceful
in your heart
with forgiveness
to impart.

Rocky Roads

Time turns to dust
as rocky road views
creating memoirs
to win or to lose.
Passing perceptions
become as a sight
within rocky roads
in our life’s daylight.
Ventures in training
that minutes explore
on many rocky roads
ones traveled before.
Scenes come to life
as an echo’s release
on down rocky roads
to uncover peace.
The end is a vision,
a sight which to see
on the rocky roads
with time as the key.
Heaven then awakens
with seasons of style,
blessings uncountable
surely compile.
Wearing on mindsets
as the seconds pass
leaving many lessons
that surely will last.
Becoming so scenic
Wearing on mindsets
as the seconds pass
leaving many lessons
that surely will last.
Becoming so scenic
as time is bestowed
life is a venture
on down rocky roads.

Within and Without

Piers of illusion
displays certain sights
scenes within scenes
daylight and nights.
Seen are the ripples
that begin with a view
speaking their volumes
in waters of blue.
Life is a pattern
so many can’t see,
for their perception
might not clearly be.
Within and without
as a timeless charade
many are the actors
in a lifetime’s parade.
Waiting for minutes
to hand out a frame
as a time and a place
for them to attain.
A pelicans perch
on a buoy of time
can create peaceful
found in your mind.
Look for the blessings
that minutes can give
come from our savior
to help us to live.
A page full of waters
with ripples of love
from God our father
and Heaven above.
Look beyond seconds
as hours multiply
and see the glory
that’s life’s apple pie.
Look within the pier
of fear and doubt
and find the blessings
within and without.

Shadows Meet

Those days remembered
become as a dream
a time and a place
we’ve one day seen.
Shadows of ourselves
are as memoirs to find
found within a turnstile
of a so distant time.
Shadows will meet
as the minutes procure
beginning a lifestyle
of a heartbeats allure.
Those days remembered
are as clouds floating by
scented with a moment
of a true blue sky.
We are as the actors
creating our destiny
as our shadows meet
in the things that we see.
United in passion
our hearts might display
seeking to remember
that one distant day.
Many times over again
our thoughts may unite
seeking once again
for that magical sight.
The past is a mirror
reflecting to repeat
what all we remember
as our shadows meet.

Believe

Open your eyes up
and look with belief
as you let doubtful
find some relief.
Believe in yourself
as you move along
allowing your lessons
to make you strong.
Find in the waters
of life evermore
the strength to begin
a time which to soar.
Strength is believing
in what God can do
with a little bit of time
and a little bit of you.
Believe in the truth
of God and His Son
and let Him help you
before you’ve begun.
Then learn to believe
in others as friends
timelessly counted
heartbeats transcend.
Look on beyond then
your yesterdays doubts
through all the in ways
and all of the outs.
Don’t allow Satan
to come and deceive
for Heaven is greater
just learn to believe.

Haiku
for Jan 5,  2019

In search of today
yesterday may interfere
and cause you problems.

Sheltered from problems
can hinder tomorrow’s growth
as weakness befalls.

We are as shadows
when we only repeat things
that others have learned.

Changing direction
does not guaranty better,
for it may be wrong.

The snow of winter
creates a season of bliss
if you allow it.

A lost perspective
can create havoc on life
if not understood.

Legions of anger
often causes war on ones
that are not involved.

Needless is worry
when it is about the past
that cannot be changed.

Searching for flowers
leaves some without a season
to show their true self.

Writing a novel
of a fictional journey
could create a truth.

Tomorrows doorways
are often yesterdays finds
that we overlooked.

A glimpse of today
might have fear written in it
that’s written in lies.

The best of the best
still has many flaws to find
in which to learn from.

The lives that we live
are the things that many see
and judge our pathways.

The light of a thought
brings life to a perspective
that some never see.

Many hide the truth
behind a large wall of lies
that time will destroy.

The future and past
connect through the present
as learning and learned.

Found in a heartbeat
might be residue of life
that is remembered.

Belonging to one
as a marriage of lifetimes
needs a little love.

The seeds of a plant
can become what they came from
if they are cared for.

Sharing a lifetime
with another of the same
needs patience and love.

The trials of today
are often spawned from life
that we just ignored.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
&
HAPPY NEW YEAR

I hope you all had a merry Christmas
or whatever you celebrate.  Judy and I
had a wonderful Christmas.  We went
to Caribou Maine and spent Christmas
Eve with the family and then came home
and watched Christmas movies.  Then
Christmas day,  Judy fixed us a nice lil
Christmas dinner and we are still busy
picking the ham to pieces and all that
was left LOL.  We watched Christmas
movies most of the day.  🙂 We’re still
watching Christmas movies when we
get a chance.  Our grandson Christian
came yesterday (Saturday) and is now
spending the weekend with us.  There
isn’t much else to tell,  besides that,  I
don’t want to spend too much time on
this article,  being I would much rather
spend some time with Christian.  So,
I’ll tell you the quick things hehehehe.
We’ve still got quite a bit of snow and
it snowed again Friday.  Yes we had a
white Christmas,  although,  it didn’t
snow then,  but we still had a lot of that
white stuff on the ground 🙂  I took a
little vacation from writing last week.
LOL I wrote a little bit,  but not even
half of what I usually write.  Hey,  it
was Christmas ya know HoHoHo.  I
called my mom up and wished her a
merry Christmas.  Thankfully,  my
sister Peggy went and spent Christmas
Eve with mom.  Thank you Peggy 🙂
I hope you had a merry Christmas as
well.  God has been good to Judy and
I.  He’s put people in our lives that
have become just like family and He
has also kept His mighty hands over us
protecting us.  Thank You my Lord.
So,  now I do believe it’s time for me
to be looking back on 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
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE…
I think I may have found a decent
title just a few lines back hehehehe.
Now to hopefully write something
that makes a little bit of sense using
it :).  Here goes nothing…

I Do Believe

The signs of times
within history
are what reminds
what God gave free.
His love so true
with each passing day
becomes so clear
as we kneel and pray.
He watches and waits
for us to decide
to seek for His love
to live deep inside.
For I do believe
His love will win
giving us Heaven
even when we sin.
He sent us His Son
to help us survive
and find a pathway
to the great prize.
Heaven awaits us
if we’ll turn around
and seek His love
upon higher ground.
We must each decide
what paths we weave,
for now is a chance
for I do believe.

I hope you enjoyed the poem and you
got something out of it.  I also hope you
enjoyed my rambling.  It was quite a bit
shorter than normal huh hehehe.  Judy
and I hope that the New Year brings you
many blessings.  Stay well and safe.  Well,
There’s not much else to tell you except
of course what I tell you every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  This week I only wrote 4 poems
and no Christmas poems.  I did though
write 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,  to try
and find that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a Happy New
Year and a wonderful week.  I’ll see you
next year 🙂  Now to find that ornery off
switch.  Hmm,  gettig lazy are ya,  or are
you doing as I did,  taking a little break?
So OK,  you did try to hide,  sort of LOL.
Right behind my glass of orange juice 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Virtual Peace

Within a photo
that time brought true
a virtual dream
can come in view.
A virtual moment
found with a smile
a time you remember
now out of style.
A virtual peace
that begins its vision
as time moves on
the roads we’ve driven.
Life’s as a turnstile
a rhythm of roads
that time carries on
life by the loads.
Lingering memories
become such a view
that moments envelop
all that is new.
Then is just a shadow
a glimmer of time
found as a memory
then so divine.
Some virtual peace
becomes clear to see
as a page within page
of a blissful degree.
So look at a photo
and find some release
tucked there within it
as virtual peace.

Simple Smiles

Look within
and find a way
to move ahead
from day to day.
Find a smile
within your view
and then begin
its view in you.
A simple smile
can open scenes
minutes passing
seasons dreams.
Take the time
to look ahead
and find a view
to then bewed.
Marry it to
your view today
and then smile
a bright array.
Allow for time
that life compiles
to find within it
simple smiles.

With Life

Time on Earth
is now and past
with some scenes
we wish to last.
Links to then
become insane
for we’ve sought
so much to gain.
Beyond our view
might be a time
a sight to see
that is sublime.
For with life
is time’s display
filled with hope
for another day.
Yet we need to
search within
and find a path
to then begin.
A journey to
and journey fro
the light of life
to help us grow.
Finding times
a faded hue
and giving them
a better view.
Allowing life
of time and date
to not to meet
a similar fate.
Look for life
within a dream
to then create
another scene.
A scene of truth
a scene of life
filled with hope
and less of strife.

Midnight Dreams

Some faded light
and starry haze
gives the moon
for ones to gaze.
Time becomes
 a midnight tour
with the essence
life’s allure.
A cloudy night
of certain scenes
much like oceans
or like streams.
Seasons change
as clouds drift by
in the midnight
dreamers sky.
A lowly page
is turned in time
giving ones
a sky’s design.
Just like a stage
with actors white
clouds drift by
with such a sight.
Becoming scenes
we dream so true
to give our sleep
a wondrous view.
This is called our
midnight dreams
clouds becoming
whitish streams.

Haiku
for Dec 29,  2018

Life is a story
written with many lifestyles
some don’t understand.

Moment’s perception
could be a misconception
viewed in a hurry.

Alone in a room
you might hear many movements
spirits watching you.

Time is the seconds
that creates many choices,
sometimes illusions.

Leaving with anger
can bring about much regret
as you remember.

Lost down an old road
dust of life might hide real well
the much better scenes.

Essence of slumber
can be a dreamers charade
displayed as our wants.

A forest of thought
can imagine a doorway
to another place.

Shadows of ourselves
are found in many others
that see us daily.

Above and beyond
is a notion of hopeful,
often unable.

The leaves of autumn
display their welcoming sight
as winter’s doorway.

Looking far and wide
can cause a moment of loss
as now eludes you.

Grass is like our lives
as some think ones are better,
but perception lies.

Links to a lifestyle
can become an illusion
we think of as real.

Chance is a moment
that comes and goes in our lives
some good and some bad.

Bitterness of life
can unlock many pathways
within loneliness.

In search of a time
you might overlook blessings
right in front of you.

A snowy winter
displays chance for a snowman
to stand big and round.

Today’s tomorrows
might hold yesterdays visions
that were just a dream.

Springtime awakens
when winter’s fallen asleep
leaving melting snow.

Through many windows
there are different visions
we’ve chosen to see.

Loneliness will grow
if you’ve created a wall
inside of your mind.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
&
MERRY CHRISTMAS

Well it’s one day till Christmas Eve 🙂
I hope yall are ready.  Judy and I have
been looking forward to this wondrous
day.  Spending it with the family.  We
cannot wait.  Christmas is our favorite
time of year.  We’ve been watching a few
Christmas movies almost every day 🙂
We might watch The Christmas carol
tonight.  The problem is what version of
it we want to watch hehehe.  We have
3 versions of it.  Oh well,  which ever
that we decide to watch,  I am sure we
will enjoy it.  We’ve still got a lot of that
white stuff outside LOL.  We had 2 days
of 40 and 50 degree weather with rain,
but it’s in the lower 20’s today and it’s
supposed to be that way for the next few
days.  It doesn’t look like it will snow
tomorrow or Christmas Day,  but there
is some snow forecasted for a day or 2
afterwards.  Although,  we all know that
the forecast is just a guesstimate and it
could give us a surprise.  It’s happened
many times before 🙂  We’re happy just
having some snow on the ground and
yes,  we still have tons of it HoHoHo 🙂
Of course I would love it if it would snow
a little bit for Christmas,  but I have no
control over the weather.  Although,  it
does look like we will most assuredly
have a white Christmas again as we have
had for the past 11 years.  Yep,  I love
snow and I love to watch it snow and I
love to take pictures of all of the white
wintery scenes.  I even like to go outside
and play in it with our boys 🙂  I guess
I was born to live in this colder climate
being I don’t like it when temperatures
get in the upper 70’s and above.  I am
very hot natured and due to my health
issues I cannot handle hot weather,  so
this is perfect for this old Santa Claus
looking guy.  Of course we do have
a few weeks of warm weather that we
have to use our portable air conditioner
during the summertime days,  but for
the most part it’s just right for this old
man.  The scenery up here gives me a lot
to take pictures of which many of the
pictures I use for my poetry.  LOL I’ve
already written 72 poetry pictures for
my up and coming book 10 🙂  I ordered
a copy of my new book 9 and received
it Friday.  It turned out GREAT.  I was
worried,  being I had to use a different
publishing client other than Createspace
which is the one that I used for all of my
other books.  Createspace has moved all
of its stuff to Amazon.com.  I had to
do my front cover a little differently to
get it to look like the rest of my books,
but I managed.  Still,  the hardest part
is formatting all of my poetry pictures
into PDF.  That takes a little bit of time,
but I can do it being I have a lot of time
to spare LOL.  I know I write a lot,  but
writing and photography keeps my mind
alert.  I do though get tired of not having
any friends up here to come and visit me,
but that’s life.  I know many that have it
much worse than me.  Judy and I have
each other as well as these 2 little boys
of ours.  I was hoping that my daughter
would be able to come up for Christmas,
but she had too many financial issues that
prevented it.  Maybe next year :).  Judy
and I are hoping to be able to drive to
Texas in 2019,  but it all depends on how
our finances are as well as our health.
Still,  God gives us what we need and
helps us in our many struggles through
life.  He will not do for us what we are
able to do for ourselves though.  That
would not be helping,  but hindering our
growth.  Growth comes from struggles
and lessons come from our failures in
life.  The key is,  to not give up,  for we
all have our own share of trials in life,
but they may be hidden from you and I.
So don’t think that just because someone
is doing better than you that they aren’t
struggling with something behind closed
doors.  Now with that said I reckon it is
time for me to look back over 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 little place of
my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may of
found a decent title about halfway back
in my rambling and now after checking
I see that it has not been used as of yet,
so used it shall be today.  Here goes…

The Hardest Part

Choices we choose
and times we find
can often create
a bad frame of mind.
Some rocky roads
that time displays
might be the teachers
of future days.
The lessons we learn
from other sights
might be the teachers
of wrongs and rights.
The hardest part
might be to let go
of a time and place
you used to know.
Often our pathways
are threaded desires
formed in the mindset
of yesterdays fires.
The torches we burn
in an unhealthy way
can burn up your life
and lead you astray
So, learning to let go
is the hardest part,
but sometimes needed
to heal your heart.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem.
I also hope you enjoyed my rambling LOL.
Judy’s in the kitchen fixing up some foods
for our Christmas Eve family gathering 🙂
I’m looking forward to it.  The temperature
is dropping 🙂  It’s 20 F right now,  but it’s
supposed to be 2 F by morning.  It looks
as though I will have to leave a hot water
faucet dribbling over night to keep our
hot water heater from freezing.  That will
also prevent our cold water from freezing.
Anyways,  I haven’t much else to tell you
other than what I tell you every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,  no extras,
but there are 6 Christmas poems in the
mix.  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 blessings filled week
and a truly magical Christmas.  I hope
you have a safe and joyful holiday with
friends and or family.  May God bless
you greatly.  Now,  where can that lil
off switch be hiding this time?  Where
oh where can it be?  Hmm,  what’s that
I see behind our internet router??????
LOL Peekaboo,  I see you Hahahaha.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Pink Winter Dreams

Life is a moment
gathering hills
scenes so amazing
timeless fulfills.
Some days may be
as a rolling desire
pinkish of essence
in their entire.
Blissful winters
display as a dream
created with snow
and ice all agleam.
Some days glisten
until dark of night
with wondrous hue
of season’s delight.
Textured with life
of moments array
scented with peace
in a wonderful way.
As time ticks on
it leaves a view
often with colors
as dreamers ensue.
Many snowflakes
can gather around
and become colors
the sun shines down.
Yet as a shadow
of magical scenes
you might see some
pink winter dreams.

Hazy Shade of Blue

With life there’s death
that times unfold
as the minutes display
from young to old.
A sweet ocean breeze
becomes a gaze
as the seconds tick on
to future days.
A large ship at sea
might pass you by
as an ocean’s memoir
beneath a blue sky.
As clouds envelope
a true summer scene
the blue then becomes
as just but a thing.
Time is uncountable
as seamless views
with a touch of white
as minutes infuse
The blue seems to fade
as a cloud of time
becoming as a scene
of a poetic rhyme.
When looking deeply
into the sea air
you just might find
an answer to prayer.
It might be illusion
but a wonderful view
found as a blessing
a hazy shade of blue.

Illusions Begin

Cascading scenery
as winter and times
begins an illusion
that a dreamer finds.
Maybe a snowscape
or twigs thereunto
decide the perception
of a moments view.
It could be a version
of Christmas to see
as illusions begin
with a Christmas tree.
Yet with the minutes
that gather around
the illusions may be
what truth has found.
Time is the factor
of a Christmassy glow
not just an illusion,
but of billows of snow.
Moments might hide
mere whispers of love
found in the twigs
as a small turtle dove.
There might be trees
with a Christmas feel
scented of winter
a time so surreal.
So don’t stop looking
where illusions begin,
for they may be magic
for time to transcend.

With A Glance

Subsequent scenes
become as a dance
a time that displays
life with a glance.
Beyond our views
we might only see
what’s standing tall
before you and me.
Tomorrows minutes
might give a view
that now perceives
as not so true.
A sudden doorway
might open wide
letting in feelings
a moment applied.
Pouring as visions
of a lake of time
or grasses blowing
that fill up the mind.
Beyond what we see
might be a phase
found with a glance
of our yesterdays.
Tomorrows gather
together to create
a time within mind
of a future date.
We might envision
clouds floating by
life with a glance
in a true blue sky.
Yet as the stories
of life are discerned
we are with patterns
pages we’ve turned.
Written as memoirs
of season’s romance
time is a story of
us with a glance.

Alone in White

A sight of winter
stood to stare
finds a glimmer
scenic flair.
Alone in white
with not a fear
for guiding light
is always near.
You might feel
you have no one
as time proceeds
each setting sun,
but surely though
what is so true
God is there
for me and you.
Yet the moments
might seem dim
life of times
out on a limb.
Trudging through
will leave a trail
times we strove
to never fail.
For our stride
in seasons flow
might leave paths
in winter’s snow.
A Christmas scene
to much delight
shows some peace
alone in white.

Traveling Through

With shades of white
in wintertime’s hue
I found some tracks
just traveling through.
They formed a line
as a path to go
with train tracks seen
in Christmas snow.
Just traveling through
to another place
a seasonal time
with just but a trace.
The tracks had snow
that covered them well
and left just a sign
of a moment’s detail.
A train through life
just traveling through
to arrive at Christmas
in a day or two.
It gave a loud whistle
as it scurried along
on down the tracks
with a Christmas song.
Just like a story
from a picture book
it traveled through
with a wintery look.
The tracks came to life
with a magical view
as a Christmas tale
just traveling through.

Bench of Dreams

In summer’s skies
a dream comes true
a time and place
a wishful view.
The dream is white
of mere memories
of a time of life
within winter’s seas.
An ocean of snow
becomes the glance
inside the mind
as love’s romance.
The seasons share
their point of view
as ones look on
from old to new.
A Christmas scene
of white and wonder
fills the mind with
times to ponder.
A Bench of dreams
brings times alive
of winter sights
some minds contrive.
The essence sings
of dreams and more
as times of life
that I do adore.
Those snowy days
of Christmas scenes
can live within
a bench of dreams.

Looking On

 Sights we’ve seen
remembered well
our heartbeats find
that times compel.
As seasons change
and times move on
we might perceive
a distant dawn.
A time we found
some peace of mind
with glimmers of
a point and time.
While looking on
the path might show
a season’s stage
to come and go.
We each have scenes
remembered well
as books of life
a story to tell.
Many might see
a different view
as they look on
the same as you.
For as our pathways
gather sights
the views we see
shine different lights.
We each have views
on right and wrong
so choose your best
while looking on.

Feliz Navidad

With scents of winter
and snow of white
the season displays
a Christmassy sight.
Some dream of magic
as some look away
as essence of Christmas
comes closer each day.
Some in their greetings
say feliz Navidad
and others might say
that sounds a bit odd.
Some in their judgment
look down on a few
that say Merry Christmas
to me and to you,
but there are still many
that say it with love
either Spanish or English
the essence thereof.
So find in your heart now
the way to paraphrase
wordings for Christmas
in the merriest ways.
So say it in a heartfelt
truth from within
a Christmassy greetings
with love to transcend.
For either way it’s said
it’s a gift from God
merry Christmas friends
or feliz Navidad.

He’s Stood Fast

Our dog loves snow
and Christmastime.
He watches and waits
for a scenic design.
Our boy sits atop
of hills of snow
watching and waiting
for a HoHoHo.
Yes he’s stood fast
just looking around
hoping to hear that
Santa Claus sound.
He’s a little snow dog
that romps and plays
in wintery months
of snow filled days.
But the closer it comes
to Christmastime
it’s found that he has
a snow laden mind.
For as the moments
are shadows that cast
we find our boy
as he’s stood fast.

Haiku
for Dec 22,  2018

Tomorrows counted
are as many unhatched chicks
that might never hatch.

Losing faith in life
displays an moment’s doorway
leading to nowhere.

The need for money
can become a mere nightmare
if greed is attached.

Changing positions
can create much confusion
with new to be learned.

With just but a breath
one can blow away friendship
leaving just a gasp.

A wintery day
can become a painter’s task
to show on canvas.

Our choices vary
as our lifestyles may provide.
Choose what’s good for you.

Looking for true love
can find you many liars
that you must weed through.

Walking through autumn
you’ll see some signs of winter
with leaves falling down.

Skipping stones through life
can create a pond of grief
that causes ripples.

Now is only now,
for it is not tomorrow
and not yesterday.

As time moves along
it leaves traces of itself
hidden in shadows.

In search of flowers
that only bloom in springtime
can’t live in winter.

Choosing a lifestyle
that’s not intended for you
can find destruction.

Many sights and sounds
are as memories of ours
that we hear again.

Knocking on a door
without knowing what’s inside
needs you well prepared.

Beyond a viewpoint
might be many perceptions
that we do not see.

Swimming in a stream
can leave you fighting currents
that take you away.

Traipsing through a field
not watching where you’re going
might cause a stumble.

Within a window
holds the views that many want,
but cannot afford.

Counting your money
before you have paid your dues
can show illusions.

The scent of flowers
looms in the air of springtime
even in our dreams.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you have had a nice passed week.
Ours has been somewhat uneventful LOL.
Nothing much has changed aside from it
getting dark real early making it hard to
take any pictures.  In other words,  I did
not take any pictures this week aside from
a few blurry pictures that I took of some
houses with their Christmas lights.  I had
trouble taking the pictures being I had to
hold my breath so as to not breathe out
and blow condensation in front of the
camera LOL.  It was rather cold and my
hands were shaking too 🙂   No matter,  I
will just share last weeks pictures along
with a couple of the less blurry pictures
of Christmas lights.  Next topic.  Well,
I finally published my 9th book.  Yep,
it’s now for sale at Amazon.com along
with all of my others.  They would make
great Christmas gifts.  Anyways,  off of
that subject.  The weather has been back
and forth up this way.  It’s supposed to
snow tomorrow.  How much,  now that’s
a question that the weather channel can
never get right LOL,  for their predictions
usually change from day to day up until
the day that they are predicting hehehe.
It could be more snow or less snow than
they are predicting.  LOL we shall see.
Judy and I are enjoying the Christmas
season.  The snow outside makes it look
so Christmassy.  We are set to watch a
ton of Christmas movies 🙂  Judy just
woke up and came in here to join me
and the boys.  Benny and Rocky are
well.  They’re just as ornery as ever 🙂
There isn’t much else going on around
here.  I’m fixing Judy and I something
to eat for brunch right now.  Biscuits
with jam, eggs and sausage links.  The
biscuits will be ready in a few minutes
and then I can start buttering them and
putting strawberry jam in them.  It’s 4
in the afternoon now and it’s already
getting dark.  Yep,   for me to take any
pictures,  I’ve gotta get them early LOL.
I did take a few pictures outside our
front door earlier today.  It’s still white
outside 🙂  Oh yea,  Judy and I finished
with our brunch a while ago.  I enjoy
cooking for Judy and I.  We switch out.
She will often fix us dinner.  That’s the
way it should be.  Not always relying
on the other to do for you.  After I get
done writing,  I’m gonna head out to
the mailbox and see if we got any mail
yesterday.  I was busy writing most of
the day and Judy went to her sister’s
house for craft night.  Judy painted a
pretty picture that I am going to use
for a poetry picture.  I’ve already got
62 poetry pictures written for book 10.
Yes,  you can say it.  (Bill,   you write
a lot)!  Yep,  I write a lot.  It keeps my
mind in gear hehehe.  God has given
me the gift of poetry and stories and
I try my very best to use it.  We’ve all
got gifts from God,  but some may not
be aware of them yet and some have
chosen not to use them.  Don’t make
the error of looking at another and
comparing.  Every gift has its own
place in life and even the smallest of
gifts can stand out like a mountain.
We thank You God for all that You
have done for our families and for
us as we strive through life to do our
best.  We may fall from time to time,
but through You we have strength
to stand up again and continue on.
Now,  I do believe it’s time for me to
begin my journey back through all
that I’ve written here to see if I can
find a good word or phrase that I can
use for the title for today’s brand new
poem.  So,  it’s away I go,  to that lil
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may have found me a decent
title just about a 3rd of the way back
in my rambling.  Now to see if I can
do anything at all with it.  Here goes.

Looking At Another

Comparing ourselves
with someone you see
might become flawed
just a slight degree.
Looking at another
and deciding their style
might not see the frown
that’s hidden by a smile.
Often ones fearful
will only show you
the things that they wish
were really so true.
Yet ones perspective
can but only define
the sights that they see
as a moment in time.
Look now within you
and see what is there
and find what is true
as an answer to prayer.
Looking at another
and saying who they are
might not be so true
as inside may be a star.

Well,  there ya go.  I have spent my life
being judged by my appearance and not
by who I am.  There are many that are
dumbfounded to find out who I actually
was and the fact that I’m a poet and I’ve
been one for many decades.  There are
many that thought I was ignorant or
retarded,  but did not see my humorous
side.  Anyways,  I guess it’s time for me
to tell you what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poetry
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems
with 1 extra with 9 Christmas poems in
the mix.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.  Now,  I
do believe it’s time for me to 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.  Now,
where can that cantankerous off switch
be hiding this week?  Hmm,  looking
around the room for something out of
place or moving when it shouldn’t be 🙂
Aha,  I see ya you little whippersnapper.
Hiding under the paper towel that I
brought in with the food.  It would of
been a good hiding spot if it were not
for all of the movement.  Could you
at least stay still for 5 or 10 minutes?
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Green With Envy

Times of wantings
times of greed
we often get what
we don’t need.
Envying others
and their own style
is often misjudging
someone’s smile.
Green with envy
over many things
can be confusions
hidden scenes.
You may not know
what’s going on
with ones we envy
of right or wrong.
They might not be
as happy and well
as you are seeing
if truly they’d tell.
The ones you envy
might surely be
with many struggles
that you can’t see.
So don’t be fooled
by someone’s life
for it might be
with tons of strife.
For they might just
be looking at you
green with envy
for all that you do.

Sorted Threads

Winters remembered
times long before
are now as the threads
to anew to explore.
Memories enlightened
as moments unwind
found as mirror
reflecting a time.
Many sorted threads
are tangles and weaves
a Christmassy essence
of all the mind sees.
Assorted viewpoints
becoming our dreams
seasons of memoirs
the greatest of things.
A wintertime photo
unleashes its view
within sorted threads
of old and anew.
It’s a heavenly feeling
that stays on the mind
as a Christmassy day
of a special design.
We all have moments
that live deep within
found in our memories
a time way back when.
Passages flavored as
times sorted threads
pouring as water
filling life’s riverbeds.
Leaving a small trace
of minutes that pass
textured as a moment
of our shadowy cast.
Then may seem illusion
that slowly drifts away
leaving sorted threads
in our day after day.

Dreamer’s Hue

Looking out to sea
with eyes opened wide
a dream of a moment
can then be applied.
Scented of the ocean
as waves crash ashore
time is but an essence
of a scene to explore.
A dreamer’s hue of life
that the sunshine shows
minutes turn to hours
each moment bestows.
Bright rays of sunshine
come melding within
giving a dreamer’s hue
a glimpse of the wind.
Time blowing briskly
as the sunshine displays
mildness of heartbeats
on warm summer days.
A dreamer’s hue grows
with the colors of time
becoming a melting pot
for eyes then to dine.
It is but as a dream
that a moment allows
giving all the pleasures
a dreamer’s hue endows.
So if you are searching
for a place of release
allow a dreamer’s hue
to picture some peace.

The Last Christmas Tree

There once was a time
that Christmas prevailed
showing everything
that the season entailed.
Christmas stockings hung
by the old fireplace
with the sight of children
and a winter’s embrace.
The tree stood decorated
waiting for the time
for Santa Clause to come
with his jolly frame of mind.
Putting presents under
the tree with many lights
scented with the aroma
of the Christmassy nights.
But yet on the wayside
of an old country road
there was a Christmas tree
with no ones abode.
It waited to be purchased
as Christmas passed by
then it leaned over
and just began to cry.
It was a beautiful tree
that ended up alone
just standing all by itself
without not a home.
Yet someone saw it
and purchased it as well
then the last Christmas tree
had a home then to dwell.

After Winter

The melting snow
of Christmas past
begins its show,
but not too fast.
It still displays
the scenic sights
after winter
days and nights.
Snow’s still found
in many places
Christmas scenes
of scenic traces.
For after winter
time moves on
leaving memories
dusk to dawn.
Times recorded
within our minds
after winter
great designs.
We remember that
Christmas cheer
the time of life
each passing year.
So many things
that we recall
a child of joy
a bouncing ball.
The melting snow
displays a sight
that’s after winter
less of white.

Season’s Cuisine

A snowy matinee
of a seasonal quest
shows but a time
it displays the best.
White snowy scenes
a glimmer of style
displays a time
of a wintery while.
Christmastime sights
in a wintertime way
become as a view
of a joyful display.
Snow flakes falling
become as a view
that’s piled so high
in life thereunto.
As a Christmas card
from heaven above
a season’s cuisine
is filled full of love.
It awakens hearts
that once had slept
and cheers the ones
that once has wept.
Seeming as magic
the snow falls down
flakes float sweetly
to land all around.
It is a Christmassy
moment of dream
found within winter
as season’s cuisine.

Afternoon’s Past

Latent memories
fall to the side
leaving a display
of a down hill ride.
The sun fades away
leaving little light
as afternoon’s past
sinks out of sight.
It seems as a recital
Christmas to come
afternoon’s past
and its sinking sun.
Snow laden scenes
as a tasty treat
a sight so magical
time can’t compete.
It becomes a story
a Christmas delight
as ones remember
a distinctive sight.
A journey with snow
in a Christmassy way
gets better each time
in its own display.
Afternoon’s past
of a seasonal style
transforms sadness
to a heartfelt smile
and then that smile
reflects on others
mothers and sisters
fathers and brothers.
This is a moment
that times transform
an afternoon’s past
to new days born.
Bringing alive hearts
that once were aghast
Christmastime scenes
in afternoon’s past.

Early Winter

Driving through stages
of wintertime’s view
displays many sights
with an essence of blue.
The sky is inviting
my eyes to perceive
all of the clouds
that winter did weave.
In a web of winter
comes scene’s delight
the beginning of times
all covered in white.
As an early winter
comes in with a task
it brings many moments
remembered from past.
Just like a life’s novel
that writers enhance
winter is emotions
as a song and dance.
Often as snowflakes
begin with a style
life brings alive then
a Christmastime smile.
A time in early winter
with its own cup of tea
flavored with snowflakes
that so many see.
Yet many people
only see in their dreams
a time of early winter
with white snowy scenes.

Beyond Memories

The life of time
creates its view
as minutes pass
from old to new.
Beyond memories
lifetimes unfold
a story a venture
that someone told.
Set in a picture
moments unwind
within memories
a timeless design.
Snow within view
of a wintery day
displays blessings
a Christmas array.
Stories of God
and Jesus His Son
brought us a life
for new days begun.
Found as a guide
to show us a path
a venture in time
from our aftermath.
Given as blessings
to teach us well
a heavenly journey
away from Hell.
A snow filled scene
with distant trees
brings life in view
beyond memories.

Crystal Sights

As roads lead on
the way they go
they might be found
with winter’s snow.
For as the seasons
are then and gone
those crystal sights
might then live on.
Wintertime’s days
become as a sight
a scene so serene
with snow of white.
It seems to speak
of wondrous things
Christmas sights
to fill our dreams.
A road of winter
passing through
becomes a life
with thereunto.
The snowflakes fall
and create a style
with crystal sights
for many a mile.
With a snowy touch
of whitish ways
it shows Christmas
for ones to gaze.
So within winter’s
days and nights
search for a sign
of the crystal sights.

Beauty of Christmas

Some only see
what winter displays
and do not see
the magical ways.
A sparkle of hope
comes alive within
as snow flakes fall
beginning to end.
They paint pictures
of Christmastime
as the artist above
is Lord God Divine.
Beauty of Christmas
is a sight to find
with maybe no snow,
but inside your mind.
Look for the gift
that the day prevails
as a magical time
the bible entails.
For even just a spark
of Heaven above
can bring alive
that Christmas love.
Allow for a breath
of Christmastime
to bring you alive
with blessings to find.
Beauty of Christmas
can give you a smile
with peace and love
of a Heavenly style.

Haiku
for Dec 15,  2018

Looking through windows
you might not hear any words
and sights are misread.

Life is like lightning
as it strikes when not ready
and gives us a jolt.

A field full of time
presents minutes as seconds
as hurry invades.

Need is misinformed
as wanting may take over
and tell you a lie.

With life there is death
that brings about more life
that is of spirit.

Challenges strengthen
as we grow stronger in stride
learning from errors.

Living in a lie
only causes suffering
for truth will be seen.

Flavors of ice cream
are as many types of life
and ones decisions.

Struggling through life
can either teach us better
or cause us to quit.

Beyond the starlight
holds another world to see
that time has hidden.

A fist full of cash
can’t truly make you happy,
for you soon want more.

Living in a dream
can often become nightmares
as life awakens.

Seeking for a goal
that is too far out of reach
can be your downfall.

Judging another
by what that you are seeing
might not show the facts.

Life is like snowflakes,
for time presents its chances
that might melt away.

When thinking too much
ones brain might become stagnant
with previous thoughts.

Counting your blessings
can help you to move forward
with a hopeful mind.

 So many minutes
slip past our daily travels
becoming unseen.

Change is much needed,
for we all become stagnant
when boredom strikes us.

The leaves of a tree
become as an hourglass
telling the seasons.

Xeroxing a frame
as your own reproduction
will not act the same.

If you cannot swim
don’t jump in the deep water,
for you might just drown.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well,  I’m back once again to ramble.
Last week was fairly peaceful as not
much went on.  Monday,  we went to
town and did a bit of grocery shopping
and paying bills after we got paid.  It
sucks getting paid only once a month,
but it’s better than the alternative of
not getting paid at all LOL.  So what
else is going on up this ways?  For one
thing,  it’s still white outside with tons
of snow.  I’m sure it will snow again
real soon.  The weather channel can
only guesstimate so there’s no definite
knowledge of when it will snow again.
It’s a toss up of Mr. Winter hehehehe.
Last night it got down to -2 degrees F.
We had to leave the faucets dribbling
a bit to prevent the water from freezing.
It might not of froze,  but no sense in
taking a risk.  I have been busy getting
our mailbox stood a bit stouter and
with some reflectors on it to try and
prevent it from getting knocked down
again by the snow plows.  My work
may have been in vain though hehehe.
We shall see 🙂  I have yet to of begun
formatting my poems for book 9 yet,
but I will LOL.  I might try to get to
work on it tomorrow a little.  Though
once I begin,  I have the problem with
not quitting until I am done Hahaha.
So what else is going on around this
place?  Well,  I had an appointment
with my NEW PA (wanna be doctor)
last Thursday and it looks as though
nothing has changed accept of course
my PA,  being it seems that every time
I go,  I have a different one and if it
happens again I am just going to quit
and when I need anything,  I’ll go to
the walk in clinic LOL.  I am sick and
tired of having to repeat myself to each
nut case to fill them in about me and
my health issues and it looks as though
she may be gone as well being she was
very pregnant and might not return.
I don’t care.  It’s not like they can do
anything for my health.  Actually the
only thing I need a doctor or whatever
for is to prescribe Ventolin and Advair
for me.  I am set with them now until
May so it will be after then that I will
be needing another prescription.  Life
goes on 🙂  So,  what else is going on
around The Pearce’s Place?  Well,  it’s
beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
everywhere we go.  The snow is on the
ground as we take our trips to town
and when we get there we see many
things LOL.  Oops,  sorry hehehehe.
Judy and I love to look through the
Christmas aisles at Walmart as well as
Dollar Tree hehehe.  I wish we had
more money so we could afford to buy
gifts for the whole family,  but we can
only buy for our grandchildren.  Oh
well,  Christmas isn’t about all that we
can buy for ones.  It’s about Jesus and
His birth.  LOL it’s also a popular day
for Santa Claus HoHoHo.  Anyways,
we’re going to have a great Christmas
I can feel it.  God has surely blessed
our little home as well as our lives 🙂
I know things don’t always go as well
as we would want them and at times
they even go very badly,  but we will
survive as God gives us strength to
make it through our many struggles.
I reckon it’s time for me to begin my
journey back through all that I have
written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem.  So,
it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a fairly decent title about a 3rd of the
way back in my rambling.  Now to see
if I can do anything with it.  Here goes.

Needing Another

When in the middle
of a destination
time might display
some devastation.
A time with fear
and fate in disguise
losing a loved one
with sad good byes.
We might be found
we’re needing another
a heart of a life
to carry us further.
That’s when a friend
comes into play
to give us strength
for another day.
We might still find
we’re needing another
a sister in life
or yet of a brother.
To help us along
a roller coaster ride
a time of life
we’re empty inside.
So allow Jesus
the true best friend
when needing another
to help you transcend.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
a little.  Also I hope you enjoyed all my
rambling LOL.  I know,  it was sort of
BORING hahaha.  No matter,  It gave
ya something to keep you busy hehehe.
I fixed Judy and I some oatmeal for a
belated breakfast.  Eating it now LOL.
I just saw in my weather program that
it’s supposed to start snowing in a few
moments and thought,  I didn’t put our
windshield wipers up and ran out to do
that and found that they were already
frozen to the windshield LOL.  I had
to break the ice and spray them down
with deicer to get them free.  Now they
are up LOL.  It can snow all it wants
to now hehehe.  Last night when we
let the boys out to go potty,  Rocky
didn’t want to come back in for some
reason.  I found out that it was due
to him having a poopy butt,  so we
got him inside and I took him in the
bathroom and washed his butt and
then trimmed the hair around his
behind so to lessen the chances of
that happening again for a while 🙂
He was happy that I did that.  You
could see it in his strut hehehehehe.
I had thought it weird that Rocky
wasn’t ready to come back inside 🙂
Benny is normally the one that wants
to stay outside and play in the snow.
No matter,  the problem has been
resolved 🙂  Now Rocky is back to
his barking at the front door being
the first to be ready to come back
inside LOL.  So I guess it’s time for
me to tell you what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers 10 more
poems with 1 extra and there are 9
Christmas poems in the mix.  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 silly
hardly elusive off switch,  but surely
not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too….
Now,  where can that off switch be
hiding this time????  Hmmm,  does
my eye deceive me or am I seeing my
little Animal figurine dancing LOL.
Nope,  I see correctly hehehe.  Did
ya get bored waiting for me to find
you?   LOL Try a little patience 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

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

Tranquillity

Dreams of a moment
begin with a time
a place you remember
that lives in your mind.
Maybe a dreamworld
that you wish to be
as a time and a place
so happy and free.
Sitting on a bench
that’s laden with snow
dreaming of a time
that was so long ago.
Finding tranquillity
in a winter white day
begins then within
in a magical way.
The whiteness of snow
that’s gathered around
can bring your dreams
right then to be found.
Scented with aromas
of a Christmassy world
textured with snowflakes
as moments unfurled.
Tranquilizing sadness
and illuminating smiles
will give you hopeful
as prayerful compiles.
A Christmastime essence
of a moment you see
can be the thing
to give you tranquillity.

Midmorning Christmas

Crispness in the air
of a wintertime’s day
brings forth emotions
of a Christmassy way.
Midmorning glimmers
of a seasonal hue
displays the fractions
of a wonderful view.
A moment of grandeur
as a season’s delight
becomes a dream world
for time to ignite.
It may seem as a story
of a wintertime tale
as morning’s arrival
and snowflakes set sail.
You might find a dream
that becomes so real
midmorning Christmas
that moments reveal.
Scented as snowflakes
and pictured as bliss
tinted of morning
with a wintertime kiss.
Life begins moving
as the day’s begun
bringing the glimmers
of a seasonal sun.
This is but a story
that a picture displays
midmorning Christmas
of wintertime’s days.

Light of Day

With the arrival of snow
in a scenery glance
time brings to mind
what snowflakes enhance.
A pageant of feelings
displays with a cue
a Christmastime day
with a magical view.
Many miss moments
that lifetimes explore
choosing not to see
what they may adore.
Within the light of day
comes a radiant sight
a time that enhances
with snow of white.
Thoughts become life
as a scene displays
the Christmastime view
of wintertime’s days.
Don’t be one to miss it
the sight so sublime.
Take time for a view
of the seasons design.
Snowflakes of Christmas
have a special chemistry
that brings to life love
in the things that we see.
Look beyond greediness
and look for a way
to find joy in Christmas
in the light of day.

Christmas Morning

It was a night to remember
with snow on the ground
sights of pure splendor
and love all around.
A child stayed up late
on a Christmas eve night
to attempt to hear Santa
on his magical flight.
He heard some jingling
from the roof up above
then looked out the window
with eyes full of love.
He wanted to go outside,
but went back to bed
and listened real closely
to hear what Santa said.
He heard the cracking whip
and jingling of bells
 as he bid them goodbye
in his Christmas farewells.
The child listened closer
to try then to hear
the sound of old Santa
and all his reindeer.
The child went to sleep
and dreamed of the night
the time he stayed up late
to hear Santa’s flight.
Then Christmas morning
he awoken with glee
and ran down the stairs
to the Christmas tree.
He searched for presents
from old Santa Claus
as he joyfully gave him
a Christmas applause
This is just a story
about a child’s delight
found Christmas morning
after Christmas eve night.

A Simple Dream

The simpler times
we find so great
are times of life
of another date.
Those distant years
with us so small
a simple dream
stood oh so tall.
Those great days
of simple sights
the times we recall
in snow of white.
Christmas scenes
in great detail
the simple things
our hearts compel.
With just a sight
of a time or two
a simple dream
can come in view.
Just like a page
from a storybook
a Christmas theme
gives another look.
Alive and well
with pages turned
our eyes may seem
a bit concerned.
For as we look at
a Christmas theme
we then remember
a simple dream.

Just A Time

With life there’s times
we might forget
the moments found
much better yet.
They might be a time
we’ve just forgotten
a wintery scene
with snow of cotton.
It might be a season
a Christmassy day
found just a time
in a magical way.
The stages were there
with wintery themes
images of Christmas
found as our dreams.
Yet as time passes
in seasonal skies
life is remembered
in a dreamers eyes.
Movement of seconds
becomes as a sight
seen as our journeys
day unto night.
Those special days
of Christmas desires
burn in our hearts as
life’s raging fires.
Yet as we look back
we often will find
glorious moments
as not just a time.

God Lives Within

As a home stands firm
in a snow covered ground
God lives within it
and all there around.
Yet there are many that
push Him away
and leave Him outside
their day after day.
Ones cold perception
and times empty heart
makes life a doorway
for Hell to impart.
Some within Christmas
will often lose sight
of what that the season
should shine so bright.
The love for The Father
and His only Son
that helps us in struggles
before they’ve begun.
Life might have burdens,
but it also has prayer
with blessings arrival
of God’s love and care.
Allow for the moments
to become better still
leaving all the sadness
on yesterday’s hill.
Life is but a journey
for us to begin
and find in our hearts
that God lives within.

A Child’s View

When winter’s upon us
with tons full of snow
time displays children
with hearts all aglow.
Their view is a dream
of which they can feel
as a time on a mound
of a snow laden hill.
Inside of their minds
are scenes of style
the times that awaken
as snowflakes compile.
The magic is a blessing
that comes from the skies
as it floats from Heaven
to land in their eyes.
A child’s view is sweet
as a blessing of time
found as a painting
inside of their mind.
Christmas is a moment
that they can find dreams
wanting old Santa
to bring many things.
A child plays happily
in cold Christmas snow
waiting for the day
for time to bestow.
Dreaming of old Santa
in the nights thereunto
as Christmas enhances
to show a child’s view.

Lifetimes Expose

Just like a flower
that life displays
moments become
of another phase.
A simple change
within our view
can bring to life
a time so anew.
For as a flower
may one day die
it is remembered
as life’s apple pie.
Seen for a moment
to then fade away
leaving memories
for yet another day.
Time’s its window
that minutes accrue
bringing the stages
for many to view.
Life is a challenge
that times enhance
some as a flower
some as romance.
Look on beyond
what time bestows
and find a flower
our lifetimes expose.

Sunrise Stage

Days of peace
and mindful prayer
a sunrise stage
gives breath of air.
As life moves on
and times begin
a sunrise stage
brings seasons wind.
With each minute
and gathered hue
a sunrise stage
shows what is true.
Maybe blue skies
or maybe rain
a sunrise stage
shows times attain.
A fisherman’s quest
with rod and reel
a sunrise stage
gives times to feel.
Within the artwork
of summer’s sky
a sunrise stage
has much to apply.
It’s with gleaming
and essence of time
the sunrise stage
shows peace of mind.
Many a pattern
gathers so true
in a sunrise stage
for us to view.
So often as shadows
or our memories
a sunrise stage
has a moment’s keys.
Found as a blessing
the turn of a page
we can find peaceful
in a sunrise stage.

Envisioning Christmas

White as a memory
scenes come and go
times we remember
smiles that we know.
Envisioning Christmas
in a scenic detail
brings alive doorways
snowflakes set sail.
A time passing by us
that displays a view
awakening portions
of a dream come true.
Envisioning a moment
that’s clear to see
a time we remember
in our history.
Driving in the country
just looking around
seeing many things
as snowflakes fall down.
A Christmas recital
that begins with a phase
a moment envisioned
of some magical days.
Such as a snowscape
a Christmassy sight
or a wintertime feeling
that you so delight.
Envisioning Christmas
as a wonderful time
can then unlock it
inside of your mind.

Haiku
for Dec 8,  2018

So many journeys
begin with only a thought
that some never see.

Time is an ocean
that rocks many ships to sleep
and lands them ashore.

Peace is a concept
that so many misconceive
and then start a war.

Looking out windows
you might see versions of life
that you wish were yours.

Lost in a doorway
that spins in revolutions
inside might be out.

Gazing at the sun
as it sinks slowly from view
you might lose yourself.

So many lessons
are gathered through a few dares
that were ignorant.

Knowing what’s better
and still living in a lie
you will hurt many.

Each breath that we breathe
has a affect on others
as a domino.

Traveling through life
without seeking for a guide
can leave you broken.

Time’s always ticking
even when we’re not moving,
so don’t fool yourself.

Perception is ours
as we each choose our pathways
to Hell or Heaven.

A space flight through time
finds many stars in motion
that can hold our dreams.

Exploring choices
gives us possibilities
to greaten our minds.

Some things are our gifts
as others are our talents
that we’ve learned to do.

A flower will die
even when it is watered
if it’s not cared for.

Now is just a time
that has arrived through moments
we might not of seen.

Discerning our lives
many view from the outside
while just looking in.

A starry evening
puts forth many dreams to have,
so let the day rest.

Belonging to one
is often misconception,
for we are not owned.

Beyond the starlight
holds dreams to become alive
within our slumber.

Now is to cherish
for it is a lesson learned
no matter how small.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another wintery week as the
days of November said their goodbye.
Yeppers,  December is here and snow
is on the ground.  It’s snowing right at
this very moment.  Judy went with her
sisters yesterday to be with her brother
in ICU at the Bangor hospital.  They
were worried about him.  Ricky had
become unresponsive.  He soon came
out of it when the sisters arrived and
Judy said he even talked quite a bit 🙂
They stayed at the hospital last night
so they could talk to the doctor this
morning and hear what he had to say,
but they had to head back home after
that to try and beat the snow that was
coming and they almost did hehehe.
Yep,  She’s home now and we sat and
watched a video together for a little
while,  but soon Judy’s eyes were
closing.  She didn’t get any sleep at
the hospital and so she headed to bed.
I figured I’d get an early start on my
journal while she was sleeping.  Benny
and Rocky were very happy to see her.
LOL every time they heard a sound
they would go to front door thinking
it was Judy/mom 🙂  Yep,  they missed
their mom.  They were good boys and
didn’t give me too much trouble.  LOL,
it’s a good thing I remembered to put
our windshield wipers up so that they
don’t freeze to the windshield.  What
I mean by put them up is to raise them
up so they are not on the windshield.
Otherwise they tend to get frozen to
the windshield in this type of weather.
So what else is going on around this
place?  Hmm,  well,  our mailbox is
still standing.  I put some reflectors
on it so that the snowplows could see
it LOL.  I put the reflectors on both
sides of it.  Red and yellow reflectors.
Now hopefully it won’t get hit as often.
I just went out and took a picture of
our car with the windshield wipers
sticking up out of the snow and I’ll
put it in my stationery for all of you
that are getting the stationery version
of my journal LOL.  It’ll show ya what
I mean when I say putting them up 🙂
Anyways,  next topic.  I have been
enjoying the snow and taking loads of
pictures 🙂  I just now heard the snow
plow going down the road.  They are
good about keeping the roads cleared.
I guess I need to get on the ball and
start working on getting book number
9 published.  Maybe this week I’ll get
started working on a cover photo
and the inside front and back of the
book and then begin formatting it.
I’ve already written 40 poetry pictures
for book 10 hehehe.  I have started
handing out my business cards in hopes
of them helping me to sell my books 🙂
If they don’t then at least I tried.  You
never know unless you try.  Anyways,
life is still filled with blessings.  It’s
the Christmas season and we love it.
The snow makes it even more beautiful.
When I was a little boy I would always
wish for snow for Christmas,  but it
never happened.  Now we have it every
year 🙂  It might not snow Christmas
Eve or Day,  but there is always snow
on the ground 🙂  Yep,  I love it,  but
I wish I had some friends to share it
with.  I know my mom and sister would
never want to be here with all of this
snow LOL.  We are much different in
that manner.  I have always preferred
cold weather over hot weather being
I’m hot natured in the weirdest way 🙂
I went through the bedroom to get
me some more orange juice and Judy
is still sleeping.  She woke up for a
moment and asked me if the boys
were still outside.  LOL I said nope
Rocky started barking saying he was
ready to come back in a while ago and
Benny came in with him.  Benny loves
the snow and only wants come in when
he can’t handle the cold anymore or
he’s hungry hehehe,  but he will come
in if we holler for him.  Well,  there’s
not much else to tell ya.  Our lives up
here are quite simple.  We have been
enjoying our new 55 inch TV hehehe.
It’s a smart TV and has a lot great
things on it.  It’s a Christmas gift to
us from us 🙂  God has blessed us with
each other and these boys of ours as
well as our families and friends.  Yes
our home has been blessed.  Thank
You Lord for all that You have done
for us and all that You will do.  We
love You.  Now I reckon it’s time for
me to start my search back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can
find a good word or phrase that I
can use for the title for today’s brand
new poem.  So,  it’s away I go,  to
that place of my recollections that I
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE 🙂
I believe I found a halfway decent
title just a few lines back.  Now to
see if I can do anything with it LOL.
Here goes…

For All

With the life we live
comes a time to see
what that’s blossomed
from you and me.
For all have sinned
and left a trail
that may lead to Heaven
or may lead to Hell.
We’ve each had flaws
to come in place,
but for all have chance
to be saved by grace.
Allowing our errors
to become well learned
lessons of a lifetime
that we have earned.
For all there is hopeful
and chance to change
making a doorway
to then rearrange.
Finding the answers
in yesterdays fall
God gives the chances
for one and for all.

So,   there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe it even spoke to you.
Also I hope that you enjoyed all of my
rambling hehehe.  Judy’s still asleep.
I might fix us something to eat in a bit
and then wake her unless she wakes up
before I get it done or even begin LOL.
It looks as though I have told you all
that there is to tell this week.  So now
it’s time for me to tell you what I tell
you every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yep 10
more poems with 4 Christmas poems
in the mix.  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 to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a blessings
filled weekend or whatever’s left of it
and also wish you blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now,  where can that silly off
switch be hiding this time hehehehe?
Oh for Heaven’s sake,  couldn’t you
find a better hiding spot.  My nose
spray bottle is hardly the size for you
to hide behind.  I could see ya sticking
out on either side of the darn thing.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Winter’s Sea

Waves of snow
displayed in time
became a view
for me to find.
It seemed a sea
of whitish phase
a time divine
for me to gaze.
This winter’s sea
a Christmas sight
had come alive
in morning’s light.
It brought scenes
alive and well
of winter’s sea
as a story to tell.
A home drifted
above its waves
this winter scene
of Christmas days
It was a time
that came in view
of winter’s sea
from old to new.
The snow of white
was drifting on
creating sights
to look upon.
A magical time
so Christmassy
was found one day
as winter’s sea.

Abstract Scenes

Flowers of life
of a colorful view
might be envisioned
as a magical hue.
Maybe as dandelions
with purplish tint
painted on paper
of a certain extent.
Abstract scenes
of a delicate time
as ones imagined
inside of their mind.
A painter displays
what surely breathes
purple dandelions
with greenish leaves.
Maybe yet another
is hidden inside
as abstract scenes
a painter applied.

Thinking Of A Time

Moments remembered
as passed days dreams
bring to mind echoes
of wonderful scenes.
Thinking of a time
I remember so well
that rings in my mind
as a story to tell.
For when I was younger
I envisioned life
filled full of blessings
and lesser of strife.
Thinking of a time
that my life tore apart
leaving me with only
a life’s broken heart.
Times I was stubborn
with a wanting way
and not hearing all that
my daddy had to say.
He warned me of life
and what I didn’t know,
but I continued on
with my own way to go.
I can now remember
how we each found peace
as God brought us closer
for a moments release.
Thinking of a time
that a moment bestowed
comes to me often when
riding down the road.

Winter’s Crisp

Trees that glisten
snow of white
seasons threshold
times delight
bring the essence
into view
the signs of times
of winter’s brew.
Snowy shadows
times display
bring the likes of
Christmas day.
Holding measures
such a gleam
as winter’s crisp
a certain dream.
Cold air blowing
through the trees
enhancing scenes
as snowy seas.
Life’s portrayal
is in detail
the times we see
the snow set sail.
The sky displays
the snow to fall
flakes of life
to cover all.
Then the season
makes a list
Christmas scenes
as Winter’s crisp.

Life Within

Living souls
will still survive
as hearts cease
to do their drive.
Our life within
is found in place
gifts from God
His saving grace.
Some may doubt
the path to go
and be surprised
of Heaven’s flow.
A grave may seem
to be of death,
but holding true
ones earthly breath.
As our memories
surely thrive
the life within
will still survive.
God gives blessings
timeless true
for when we pass
we’ll start anew.
Leaving shadows
passed days gone
as our spirits
then live on.
Heaven’s doorway
we shall find
life within
unending time.

Tossing Your Line

Take a little time
to find you a view
found within time
that lives within you.
Look on beyond
a distant shore
and find that of life
to live evermore.
Allow for a breath
of life’s ocean waves
to become as a view
to better your days.
By tossing your line
in a dreamers style
you can find peace
inside of a smile.
Losing your frowns
in a dreamers sea
you can find smiles
that will set you free.
Take a little time
to breathe in anew
a time to remind
what can be with you.
Tossing your line
to an oceans depth
you can then breathe
of a magical breath.
Find all your passion
in a prayerful mind
by not giving up then,
but tossing your line.

Taste of Magenta

An evening sky
brings my life awake
a time that I find
my eyes partake.
A purplish hue
with a bit of red
a taste of magenta
up above my head.
It’s as a dreamland
and ocean of color
displayed in time
unlike no other.
It came to life
as a storybook
a taste so deserving
I took another look.
It was as flavors
a taste for my eyes
with different shades
in magical skies.
The taste consumed
my mind that day
with evenings glance
a purplish way.
A magenta skyline
as moments emotions
drifting up above
as heavenly oceans.
A taste of magenta
begins its view
high up above me
with hint of blue.

Santa’s Flight

A night to remember
brings into view
the sight of old Santa
with reindeer that flew.
Flying across the sky
in his Christmas sleigh
hidden from our eyes
in a magical way.
He’s in the moonlight
with jingling bells
that seems as music
our story foretells.
Children fast asleep
and dreaming so sweet
thoughts of old Santa
his HoHo to greet.
They dream of his flight
through wintery skies
and some stay up late
to try to surprise.
Attempting to capture
a glimpse of his suit
and all of his reindeer
their nighttime pursuit.
Yet Santa’s ready
to be gone with the wind
as he leaves all the gifts
too quick to apprehend.
Then, soon to the stars
and the bright moonlight
he continues onwards
it is Santa’s flight.

Following Trails

Footsteps walking
and headed through
might then one day
get the best of you.
Not asking questions
where we’re to go
we might encounter
what we don’t know.
Headed through time
as our journeys begin
life opens doorways
going out and back in.
Look for the signs
of the different arrays
to guide you truly
to much better days.
Don’t just hurry in
without any clue
of what there might be
just waiting for you.
When following trails
you might not perceive
the reasons ones left
no reason to leave.
So when the minutes
show times to embark
don’t let your hurry to
leave you in the dark.
Seek for guidance
that a moment entails
and then maybe go on
following trails.

The Christmas Place

With Christmas coming
the minutes will find
a place where Santa
finds peace of mind.
He searches high
and he searches low
the Christmas place
in winter’s snow.
A place he conceived
to help him along
with a jingling essence
as a Christmas song.
Old Santa survives
the cold winter’s wind
so to bring toys
that wishes did send.
The Christmas place
gives a glowing sign
a place that can help
with Christmastime.
It helps with deliveries
as Santa flies by
landing to gather gifts
and then again fly.
Santa continues on
his year round conquest
delivering the presents
before any rest.
He gives to the children
with good they embrace
as he continues on from
the Christmas place.

Haiku
for Dec 1,  2018

Without any breath
there can be no one breathing
so look for a sign.

Chance is a moment
that comes and goes throughout life
so make good of it.

Life is decisions
filled with directions to go
and lessons we learn.

Lost in a storm cloud
you might choose the wrong answers
and make things much worse.

The leaves of autumn
are as greeters for winter
to welcome the snow.

Seen through binoculars
things might seem to be closer
so look with your eyes.

Beyond what we see
there might be sights well hidden
that could surprise us.

Life is an echo
of the yesterdays of passed
reverberation.

Changes in our lives
begin with changes in our thoughts
becoming actions.

Ongoing turnstiles
become as many tempters
to attract our minds.

Heavy is water
that has depth of an ocean
and waves of lifetimes.

Behind a good man
there might be some illusions
that you’ll never know.

Our sought after dreams
can become many nightmares
if we’re not careful.

Throughout existence
life can become as echoes
that we need to hear.

Challenge can be bad
if you’re lacking in knowledge
of what you’re doing.

Seeking illusions
will guaranty emptiness
for it’s just a dream.

Paved are our feelings
that may have a few potholes
from our excursions.

Looking to the stars
you might discover yourself
as you reminisce.

Portions of a field
may hold many hidden weeds
they we cannot see.

Guessing ones lifestyles
using their clothes as a gauge
could give false answers.

Our recollections
might be clouded perception
that we remember.

With each passing day
leaves a portion of ourselves
founds within regrets.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s another cold day up here in Maine
and expecting more snow beginning as
of this afternoon 🙂  Yeppers it’s looking
more and more like Christmas as each
day passes us by.  There are few houses
on our lil drive to town that have their
Christmas lights up.  So we’re not the
only ones LOL.  So OK,  we keep ours
up all year round and that might put us
in another group hehehe.  We had a nice
week.  Thanksgiving Day Judy and I
went up to Caribou and spent the day
with her daughter and other family
members.  We had a good time.  Good
food and good fun.  We played games.
I took a ton of pictures on our drive up
there and Judy and I took quite a few
pictures while at Mandy’s house.  So,
I’m sure that a few of the pictures will
make it into my stationery 🙂  The next
few days it’s supposed to snow and we
plan on staying home and just enjoying
it.  We do love to watch it snow and
take pictures of it LOL.  Oh yea,  do
you remember me saying that someone
stole our mail.  Well,  the mailman came
yesterday (Saturday) and said it looks
like your mailbox is back up.  I said yes
I fixed it the other day.  He said that
he put all of our previous mail in it
and delivered a package that wouldn’t
fit in the mailbox.  It looks as though
he may not have looked to see if our
mailbox was standing and just ignored
it.  I got my business cards and the
doggie treats I ordered for the boys.
The only thing is,  I had to order my
business cards again though without
the 65% discount and so I’ll be getting
them this week LOL.  Oh well,  now
I have 1000 business cards to hand out
so maybe just maybe people will buy
my books hahaha.  The cards have
my books title Pearce’s Poetry Pictures
and my Amazon Author page address
on them which has all of my books and
choices of either Kendle or paperback.
It’s worth a try hehehe.  So what else
is happening at The Pearce’s Place?
Well,  Friday evening Judy and I went
and did some grocery shopping and
we saw that the 55 inch TV’s were on
sale,  so we went home and unloaded
the groceries and Judy borrowed the
money from her brother to buy the
TV and so now we have a 55 inch TV
in our computer room 🙂  It’ll be like
being at the movies in this small room.
We watch most of our movies in here.
So now we’re planning on re watching
all of the Transformer movies and then
watching the newest one that we have
not seen yet.  That should make for
a few movie nights 🙂  The TV is our
Christmas gift to us 🙂  The TV we had
in here was one that Judy’s sister Trudy
gave us a while back and it was dying.
So,  Judy and I spent a few hours last
night cleaning off a space for the big
TV and then getting it hooked up and
programmed.  Then we watched Ghost
Adventures at 9 PM and Dragonball
Super at 11 PM.  We were worried that
we wouldn’t be able to get it set up in
time to watch our programs.  So OK
it was me that was worried HaHaHa.
Judy was the one programming the
TV and she kept saying “I’ll get it”
and she did about 10 minutes before
Ghost Adventures came on.  So now
we have the humongous TV to the
right of me.  I baked some cookies
yesterday.  I’ve got the oven heating
at the moment.  I’m gonna make us
some biscuits for brunch.  I might
put strawberry jam in them hehehe.
Anyways,  that’s all that’s going on
around this place.  I’m letting Judy
sleep a bit later being we have both
been having trouble sleeping lately.
I’ll wake her when the biscuits are
ready 🙂  God has been good to us.
We have many struggles, but we
know that we can make it with God
and His abundance of angels helping
us.  I guess it’s time for me to begin
my search back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem 🙂
So,  it’s away I go to that lil place of
my recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  Hmm,
it seems I may have found a fairly
decent title  just a few lines back and
now after checking,  I see that it has
not been used yet,  so used it shall be.
Here goes…

Adventures

Places we’ve journeyed
times that we’ve seen
might be the adventures
to fill up our dreams.
A lifetime of doorways
and windows of views
might begin adventures
that the future will use.
Time is but a counter
as minutes pass on
found as our adventures
right and of wrong.
We each have a journey
that we need to fulfill
within our adventures
of each rising hill.
Some are as surprises
that we never expected
deemed as our adventures
the moment projected.
God has a way that
connects time in place
as we find our adventures
within face to face.
Life continues onwards
as we each travel true
seeing many adventures
God gave me and you.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope you enjoyed
my rambling and maybe even liked the
poem as well as understood it.  So Judy
and I have just finished our brunch 🙂
Biscuits with strawberry jam and eggs,
yummy.  I cook pretty good hehehehe.
I fixed a couple of small sausage links
for the boys too LOL.  They love it
when I do that 🙂  Anyways,  that’s all
I have for you this week.  Now I believe
it’s time for me to tell you what I tell
you every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers
10 more poems and 6 Christmas poems
are in the mix.  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
do believe it’s time for me to begin
my search for that hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a
most wonderful weekend or what’s
left of it and a truly blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too..  Ok so where is that
darned off switch hiding this time???
Hmm,  it looks as though I have
some movement from behind my
billfold that is sitting in front of me
and now I see that you’re trying to
climb inside it to hide LOL.  You are
silly.  You’d never fit in that small
thing.  Next week why don’t you
try hiding behind something that
isn’t right in front of me hahahaha.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

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

Storefront Snowman

Life of a snowflake
begins with a time
floating from heaven
to become a design.
Maybe as a snowball
or a passing view
a storefront snowman
stood tried and true.
With a little grin
and hat on his head
life begins moving
as a wintertime spread.
Snow on the ground
as a Christmas scene
a storefront snowman
stood so serene.
People walk passed it
smiling with glee
as they go shopping
or just there to see.
Searching for gifts
for friends and more
that’s found inside
the displayed store.
As the stage is set
for a Christmas sale
a storefront snowman
has a story to tell.

Searching For Christmas

Through winter’s snow
and an evening sight
I find I’m searching
daylight and night.
The seasonal settings
of glorious hues
as Christmas scenes
of reds, greens and blues.
Scented of a moment
as a burning ember
a time and a place
of one great December.
It might be a time
when you were younger
as a child with dreams
Christmastime wonder.
Thinking of Santa
and his many reindeer
pulling his sleigh
this time of the year.
Seeking for echoes
of his shout in the night
as he leaves ones homes
and flies out of sight.
While I am always
found looking ahead
seeking for Christmas
that lives in my head.
It’s a time and a place
that brings joy to me
searching for Christmas
a great sight to see.

Simply Thinking

Through the clouds
of life’s display
I find I’m thinking
of another day.
A distant memory
of long ago
a time and a place
where dreamers go.
I’m simply thinking
of now and then
times of illusion
times that transcend.
Thinking of blessings
thinking dreams
that are now echoes
of many things.
Believing in people
believing in times
simply momentous
wondrous designs.
Time as an aroma
a smell so sweet
Thanksgiving days
good food to eat.
Soon it’s Christmas
a seasonal sight
thinking about love
and all I delight.
Time is but a cloud
as seasons fly by
with simply thinking
and a teardrop reply.

Ocean Of God

The waves of life
become a tool
as God displays
our seasons school.
Times that crash
onto our shore
become the times
that we explore.
God gives ways
of getting through
the storms of life
of old and anew.
We might not see
the waves of time
that come to us
from God Divine.
Oceans are stirred
as seasonal waves
of the to and fro
for us to gaze.
The sights we find
might seem to be
too many storms
for you and me.
Yet as the pages
of a storybook
the ocean of God
gives another look.
It’s as but a scene
a dream’s applaud
sent from Heaven
an ocean of God.

They Gave A Wave

On a winter’s day
time was of sorts
cold weather shown
on weather reports.
Seasonal status
of a winter array
as we drove to town
one winter’s day.
We passed scenes
of a whitish glow
and saw some guys
having fun in snow.
Riding snowmobiles
on snow of white
as they gave a wave
we drove out of sight.
I looked back behind
within the mirror
and saw them waving
a little bit clearer.
Before we went by
I took a photograph
both of them waving
as we went passed.
They seemed happy
to see my aim
my camera clicking
this photo of Maine.
This was so special
those wintertime days
that caught a glimpse
as they gave a wave.

Emerging Styles

What ones might see
as just but a sight
others might see
as a scene of white.
With different views
of now and again
our own perception
might be the wind.
The styles that we see
and choices we chose
might then emerge
as someone’s rose.
Winters of snowflakes
as Christmas divine
might show the way
we see time to time.
With ones illusions
and another’s dreams
time might unlock
oh so many things.
Life of our memories
becomes as a gaze
emerging as moments
Christmastime days.
The sights and sounds
that we recognize
might still breathe
what then does arrive.
A Christmas scene
that brought us smiles
might now today
be emerging styles.

Magic of Winter

Life on the road
to Caribou
our wheels rolled on
a scenic view.
The towns we passed
were winter white
a Christmas view
a magical sight.
Our wheels rolled on
to other places
seeming so timeless
as smiling faces.
We drove on through
on roads of ice
that slowed us down
then once or twice.
Our wheels rolled on
to certain sights
portions of time
with Christmas lights.
We saw some towns
with window views
displaying things
choices to choose.
Stores with wonderful
things to buy
within the windows
toys that could fly.
The very best view
was front and center
the road to Caribou
magic of winter.

Seasons Remembered

Flourishing memories
become as a glance
a Christmassy scene
that time did enhance.
Children out playing
in winter’s white snow
seasons remembered
that moments bestow.
Counted as snowflakes
that landed in place
becomes as a scene
with a smiling face.
Children had gathered
to enjoy and play
this moment in time
of a Christmassy day.
They built snowmen
and large snowballs
laughing so gleeful
the moment enthralls.
Scented as Christmas
this time brought about
a wonderful moment
I’m never without.
It lives in my memories
it lives in my sight
the pictures I took then
the snow winter white.
Life is a doorway
with a wondrous view
seasons remembered
of a time thereunto.

Like A Fly

God gives blessings
flowers bloom
as a scene’s arrival
with times attune.
So many don’t see
the beauty of time
as life of flowers
a wondrous design.
Yet the perspective
of a tiny little fly
sees all the beauty
as God’s piece of pie.
Timeless transitions
from winter to spring
a fly sees the sights
of most everything.
For its tiny eyes
look around to find
the things we forsake
as a moment in time.
God brings seconds
alive in many ways
that we should enjoy
and give Him praise.
Thank Him for life
and that of a smile
the times that we find
our lifetimes compile.
The beauty of flowers
and the big blue sky
look at it closely now
just like a fly.

Walking In The Snow

Enjoying snowflakes
as a breath of fresh air
kids are found walking
without not a care.
I gave a wave then
and they waved at me
as they walked onwards
in snow fluffy free.
On a wintertime day
with snow falling down
I saw some children
just walking around.
They were so joyful
they gave me a smile
in a Christmassy scene
of a wintery while.
They soon came over
and asked me to play
as they tossed snowballs
at me then that day.
We had some fun then
that Christmas delight
a time I remember
as a winter of white.
The snow fell quickly
and covered their steps
leaving not a trail
to the right or the left.
It was a God filled day
with blessings to grow
when I saw these kids
just walking in the snow.

Haiku
for Nov 24,  2018

Life is but a smile
needing a place which to grow
but frowns destroy it.

Looking for a time
that seems to be well hidden
might uncover goals.

Breathing in moments
you might lose a breath or two
as you’re bewildered.

Change is perspective
that some see differently
from other viewpoints.

Blessings arrivals
are often misconceptions
that we tossed away.

Seeking for the sun
you might find it behind clouds
of dismal thinking.

Choosing a pathway
needs knowledge of the journey
and trust in the Lord.

The links to a fence
are like lifestyles connected
to make useable.

We are as a rose
as we all bloom with lifestyles,
but with many thorns.

Beyond our vision
there’s another yet to see
that is within us.

Procrastination
is a part of who we are
as we all do it.

Sharing emotions
with ones that could not care less
can still be helpful.

In search of a time
while it’s still real faraway
could show illusions.

Need of a snowflake
is that of a winter’s day
that gives it a chance.

The signs of the times
are as words within the wind
to tell our future.

A forest of thought
has many leaves to think with
that many ignore.

Gradient walkways
can cause many to stumble
if they’re not prepared.

So many shadows
lie about who they follow
and become troubled.

The noise of today
may become missed tomorrow
as silence reminds.

God gives us hopeful
in the midst of our journeys,
but we’re needing faith.

Various seasons
have changes found within them
that confuse many.

A penny for thought
shows little worth in thinking
so keep it simple.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s another week gone by and we’ve
gotten a bit more snow.  The snow is
as white as can be.  On a sunny day
if you look outside without sunglasses
you’ll go snow blind LOL.  On a clear
night it is still a little bright outside 🙂
The moonlight and stars reflect off of
the snow making it seem almost like
daytime on a cloudy day hehehehehe.
So,  what’s been happening around
the Pearce’s Place?  Well,  the other
day I had to do some snow blowing
with our snow blower and when I was
done I needed to go inside being that
my hands were cold and hurting,  but
Judy had accidentally locked the door
after she went back inside from taking
pictures of me and I had to ring the
doorbell.  She came and unlocked the
door,  but as I hurried in the house
without kicking the snow and ice off
of my shoes,  my feet slipped out from
under me and I landed on my back.
So right now I am aching quite a bit.
I’ll survive.  I told her to put the lil
carpet down in front of the door
that we had moved because it kept
sliding around and I nailed it to the
floor with a couple of roofing nails.
It won’t slide now and neither will
I LOL.  I’ve now got my cleats out
and ready to deal with the season 🙂
My back is still aching quite a bit,
but hopefully it subsides a little bit
more before Thanksgiving.  So,  next
topic.  The weather has been fairly
nice.  Today was bright and sunny
and no I didn’t look outside and go
snow blind LOL.  I looked through
our computer room window at the
sky and yes it was clear hehehehe.
I did walk out the front door and
take a few pictures of the icicles
that are hanging from our porch 🙂
They are long.  About 3 foot icicles.
I guess they’ll keep getting longer
until a vibration or one of us goes
and knocks them down LOL.  It’s
18 F degrees right now at 5 PM 🙂
but it’s not as cold as it’s gonna get.
It’s supposed to be 9 F degrees by
morning.  Next topic.  Our mailbox
got knocked down again,  but our
landlord put it back up.  Now it
seems that we have a mail thief, as
the packages that I was supposed to
have gotten Saturday got removed
from my mailbox and on the internet
they were said to have been delivered
that morning in the mailbox.  Plus
the mailbox door was opened and
not a flake of snow was in it,  which
tells me that someone was in it being
if it had been opened before,  there
would of been snow in it.  I have no
clue what anyone is going to do with
my business cards or the treats that
I ordered for our boys LOL.  This
means I’ll have to start checking
our mail earlier to give no time for
that thieving piece of garbage to
get it.  I don’t understand people
like that.  On top of stealing stuff
that has no material worth to them.
Heck,  I would of given them a treat
and a couple of business cards if they
would of asked LOL.  Unfortunately
the nearer it gets to Christmastime,
the more problems with mail theft
we will have.  I cannot see how ones
can live with themselves stealing
from others.  I have faith that God
will take care of it as karma bites
them in the butt.  Through it all
though,  we’ve survived thanks to
God and His many angels that are
watching over us.  I’m sure that we
will have many struggles,  but we
will not go through them alone,  for
God is always watching out for us.
Thank You God for all that You’ve
done and all that You’ll do.  Now,
I believe it’s time for me to read
back through all of my rambling
and 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 like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may have found a fairly
decent title just a few lines from the
beginning and now after checking
I see that it has not been used yet,
so used it shall be.  Here goes…

Moonlight and Stars

Some of our friends
are the same as the sky
moonlight and stars
in a nighttime reply.
Yet many others are
seen all the time
daylight through dark
their hearts intertwine.
Time is a counter
that displays the views
the ones that we see
that our lives interfuse.
Some though are artwork
as a painted up lie
just acting as friends
to soon say goodbye.
Yet there are many
as true friends of ours
more than a moment of
moonlight and stars.

There ya go.  I know the poem might
not be one of my best,  but it’s what
I wrote LOL.  I hope you liked it a lil
and maybe even understood it.  I also
hope you enjoyed my rambling.  Yes
I do ramble,  don’t I!  Now to think
and see if I have forgotten to tell you
anything.  Nope it don’t look like it.
So I guess it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you every week and that is,
I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers,  10 more poems and there
are 5 Christmas poems in the mix 🙂
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 peaceful weekend or what
that is left of it and a blessings filled
week and also a Happy Thanksgiving.
Ok, so where is that ornery off switch
hiding this time?  Hmm,  that’s funny
I don’t remember my camera having
an extra on & off switch LOL.  You are
silly ya know.  What made you think
I wouldn’t see ya?  Try harder next
week.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzz.

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

Evening’s Arrival

Searching for tomorrow
as the minutes fade away
the evening is a window
to yet another day.
The evening’s arrival
displays texture and style
scented as a doorway
that minds of time compile.
Blissful may be scenery
as it blossoms from above
a sky filled with stories
and clouds full of love.
Many streaks of sunlight
in a timeless fashion
are the evening’s arrival
as it displays its passion.
Seeming as a painting
that a camera perceived
brought to life surely
as time frames conceived.
Listed as a turnstile
that’s written in the wind
another time of day
for then to transcend.
Seconds are as gestures
that the minutes coincide
counted as the evening
displays with certain pride.
Each day meets a moment
that displays its survival
found as just a flavor
of the evening’s arrival.

A Snowy Morn

One winter’s day
a time was seen
a snowy morn
became a dream.
It brought alive
a moment’s glance
that seemed to say
come and dance.
Trees glistened
snow of white
a snowy morn
within my sight.
It seemed to say
the season’s near
Christmas bells
I soon will hear.
Echoing softly
as times awaken
a snowy morn
my eyes partaken.
A blissful scene
within my view
displays snow
with life anew.
Sunshine seemed
to be a haze
through the clouds
on snowy days.
It’s so beautiful
this moment born
a Christmas theme
a snowy morn.

Time At A Glance

Wheels of perception
down a wintery road
display many scenes
that moments unload.
Bringing forth life
as a gestured sight
a time that’s moving
daylight to night.
Scenes become travels
of a wintertime hue
as ones drive along
in mind thereunto.
Time is a snowflake
that drifts in the air
found on a journey
with blessings to share.
Glancing at a photo
you might see yourself
as a time and a place
now dust on the shelf.
Yet as years travel
the minutes procure
a Christmas memory
with heartbeats allure.
Bringing about memoirs
journeys through time
textured with blessings
that time left behind.
This is a but a moment
of a seasonal dance
as memories come alive
in time at a glance.

Lost In Christmas

Winter white scenes
engulf my eyes
while I am looking
at Christmas skies.
Time is awakened
with my every view
lost in a turnstile
of a magical hue.
Snow is so fluffy
and so winter white
as Christmas gathers
what I so delight.
Season of splendor
season of bliss
Christmas is a time
that I cannot resist.
I’m always lost
in the scenic details
found on journeys
that a story entails.
A Christmas sight
of a home on the way
sitting on a hill
one wintertime day.
It seems to enlighten
my childhood thoughts
seasons of grandeur
that I thought I lost.
I found my mindset
that faded from view
when lost in Christmas
shows life brand new.

Just A Reflection

Seen as a heartbeat
times may just be
sights that reflect
what we wish to see.
Maybe as a gateway
to our own desires
a sky of reflections
a moment acquires.
Just a reflection
of a lake of times
creating perceptions
inside of our minds.
We might not see
what is really there
as we look onwards
and try to compare.
Reflections of life
in a mindful array
can become scenes
that we see in a way.
Glistening sequences
reflections of styles
embark on journeys
a reflection compiles.
We often remember
a time of a day
that’s now reflected
in a magical way.
So often we only
recall such a time
just a reflection
inside of our mind.

Counting Leaves

Numbers united
lifetimes conceal
are us as the leaves
of fiction or real.
Counted desires
of wanted arrays
often bring in view
some regretful days.
Leaves all mixed up
in a certain style
found as a matrix
of time to beguile.
Time comes alive
as the leaves so true
are soon to display
what is really you.
When counting leaves
of a personal life
it brings perspective
of happy and strife.
Truth is a venture
a second will find
within the leaves
of time after time.
An emerging life
that is really true
ones will try to hide
from me and you,
but one cannot hide
what the future sees
for it’s the same as
counting leaves.

Within Evening

As life is exposed
in a winter scene
white snow covers
what once was green.
The sun dips down
in the western sky
as a dimming light
to say goodbye.
Its only words
are that of time
a Christmas eve
that’s so divine.
Within a style
it displays views
a time of life
a choice to choose.
It is a moment
a time of day
within evening
that fades away.
It gives its last
of a time to see
a portion of love
for you and me.
The evening shows
a Christmas phase
a season’s glimmer
of magical ways.
So as the sunlight’s
slowing leaving
find the blessings
within evening.

Traveled Rails

Thoughts so timeless
as traveled rails
join us on journeys
of scenic details.
Found as a roadway
a train track of time
life is but a pathway
we should seek to find.
Such as a lifetime
that is now a memory
as the traveled rails
of our own history.
We leave impressions
as we journey through
maybe even lessons
for others to view.
The times we think
that no one’s watching
someone might hear
you randomly talking.
Remember the times
you heard so clear
ones speaking words
that weren’t so sincere.
For you might then be
the same as you heard
if you’re not careful
with your every word.
Listen to yourself
in your daily details
and let good be found
in your traveled rails.

Misled Emotions

Stirring as stories
words continue on
scenes we remember
of right and of wrong.
Scenes within a mirror
as we look deep inside
seeing all we’ve done
a roller coaster ride.
Fragments of time
are jumbled all about
our misled emotions
in ways and out.
Then as the windows
of time show a view
life can become the
things we wished to do.
Within our minutes
we may see ourselves
pictured as turnstiles
dust on the shelves.
The future holds life
of a different array
that you might see
as the same as today.
Our misled emotions
may become a scene
as the fabric of time
and hearts on a string.
Dreams we encounter
as we drive thereunto
bring misled emotions
often clearly in view.

Winter’s Beauty

Among the snowflakes
life is displayed
as a wintertime feel
a moment has made.
With winter’s beauty
in wondrous design
becomes such a scene
that minutes define.
Seeming like cotton,
yet cold as can be
winter comes alive
as a frigid pageantry.
It displays emotions
of a Christmas appeal
within winter’s beauty
as a seasonal feel.
Homes on our journeys
become such a sight
as the winter’s beauty
displays that of white.
Snow on the roadways
as passages to time
becomes as a memoir
of a fabulous find.
A Christmas scene
as a magical place
when snowflakes fall
and land on your face.
It is winter’s beauty
as it puts on a show
a Christmassy gleam
in wintertime’s snow.

Haiku
for Nov 17,  2018

Flakes of a snowstorm
can become that of beauty
as time interweaves.

Reality thrives
even when you are dreaming,
so wake up and learn.

Too many mistakes
without finding out what’s wrong
might be ignorance.

The light of today
might shine brighter tomorrow
after trials are paved.

Looking to the sky
you might see cloudy patterns
that form in your mind.

Thoughts of evolving
are questionable of some
being they never learn.

Various turnstiles
have a few hidden meanings
that might not be good.

When heading one way
you might often have regret
of yet another.

In search of true love
ones often do not see it
right in front of them.

The passing of time
might leave seconds uncounted
that are important.

Thriving on others
makes many as leaches
that soon find demise.

Friends of the past
may never be seen today
unless they are true.

The links of a chain
determine how far you’ll go
until you’re yanked back.

Letting loose of ones
gives them a choice to move on
or to hang around.

The best of today
might be yesterday’s problems
that you found answers.

A lifeless body
can be resuscitated
if it is God’s will.

Amidst a rain cloud
a rainbow might show colors
of enlightened peace.

Daily challenges
show us our limitations,
but rest is needed.

Sentimental times
often bring many teardrops
as wishful thinking.

The hands of a clock
are often lost perspective
as couch potatoes.

A fast growing weed
can overtake a garden
as well as the mind.

God gives us choices
while life teaches us patience
when others are slow.
