ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Take A drive

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

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and you
maybe even liked the poem LOL.  If you
understood the poem,  then that’s a plus 🙂
There’s not much else to tell you.  I think
I’ve told you all there is to tell about our
passed week and plans for this week.  So,
I guess it’s time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and that
is I wrote some more poems and haiku 🙂
Yeppers,  10 more poems with an add 4 to
bring the count up to 14. 1 of the poems is
a Christmas poem.  I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out there.
I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either or both
that you like.  LOL I just snuck into the
living room and got a picture of the boys.
Benny on his favorite recliner and Rocky
on the futon.  I opened the window and
turned on the fan for them so they would
be a little cooler.  With that said I guess
it’s time for me to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a wonderful weekend or
whatever’s left of it and a truly awesome
week.  Remember Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now where’s that silly off
switch hiding this week?  Hmmmmmm,
I think I may have seen some movement
from behind my nose spray.  LOL talk
about a bad hiding spot Hahaha.  Plus,
you can’t even stay still for a second
without peeking to see if I can see you 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Winter’s Decor

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

Going Home

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

Just Like A Dream

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

Life Is An Ocean

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

Evening’s Memory

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

Sky’s Reminder

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

Peace Awakens

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

Tiny Crab

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

Scope Of Mind

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

Haunting Dreams

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

Awaiting Time

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

Holes In The Mind

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

Crashing Waves

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

A Christmas Theme

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

Haiku
for July 15,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Autumn awaits us
with brilliantly colored leaves
to welcome winter.

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

Cherishing moments
can create false memories
not so accurate.

Tired Of Waiting

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Tired Of Waiting

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

I hope you enjoyed the poem and maybe
even understood it hehehe.   If not,  as I’ve
said time and again,  maybe it wasn’t meant
for you and yours is next week 🙂  So many
views can come from 1 poem.  So OK now,
what else is there to tell you that I forgot
to mention before?  Well weather wise,  it’s
not too bad.  Today’s high was 74 F which is
what it is right now at 5:30 PM.  Nope not
too bad.  Tomorrow looks like a near repeat
of today. July is the hottest month up here.
Alrighty then,  it looks like I have filled you
in on all that’s gone on around here.  LOL
of course I’m sure I may have forgotten 1
or 2 things,  but I guess if I did,  it’ll be OK.
So now I believe it’s time for me to be telling
you what I tell you almost every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers,  10 more poems with an added 3.
1 of them is a Christmas poem.  I also wrote
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.  I reckon it’s
time for me to begin my search for that
not so elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a wonderful weekend or what’s
left of it and truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Hmm,  where can that off switch be hiding
this time hehehe or put more to the point
sitting thinking he’s hidden.  LOL I had
to look pretty hard this time.  I thought you
might be using an old spot,  but nope 🙂
I caught a glimpse of you hiding up under
my Jesus hat.  Again,  I would not of seen
you if you would just stay hidden,  but
then in that case,  I would not find you
and this journal would never get sent LOL.
So I guess it all works out for the better.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Stars And Stripes

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

Grim

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

Christmas Desires

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

Beating The Heat

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

Flowing Mind

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

Mow Them Away

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

The Sky Awakens

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

A Passing Storm

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

Ride The Waves

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

Fireworks

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

Pier Of Rocks

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

Life Exists

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

Upon The Rocks

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

Haiku
for July 8,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Flowers of nature
bring beauty and nourishment
to life thereabouts.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

These Things

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

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

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

A Winter Mind

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

Time Passes On

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

Lost Perspective

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

Reflection

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

Lupine Dreams

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

Complacent River

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

Just Like Gold

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

Enchanted Skies

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

Black Eyed Susan

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

Christmas Trail

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

Purple Flower

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

A Simple Smile

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

Within The Waves

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

Life As Bubbles

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

A Cookout

The day prevails

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

Pond Of Dreams

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

Haiku
for July 1,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Perspective

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

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

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Allium

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

Suddenly Scenes

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

Another Look

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

Monochrome Skies

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

Signs Of Life

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

Imagination Nation

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

Old Point Of View

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

Evening Falls

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

Cherry Blossoms

Living colors
as the clouds
cherry blossoms
time endows.
White and pink
are trees of style
often seen
to give a smile.
They are often
called sukura
cherry blossoms
life much purer.
Some as paintings
life to see
found as clouds
amidst a tree.
Seasons display
scenes so awesome
that of colors
cherry blossoms.

Times Unfold

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

Ocean Of Dawn

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

Breath Of Heaven

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

Sky’s Reflection

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

Ready To Sail

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

The Well Of Life

Living breathing
heartbeats find
life is furthered
time to time.
The situations
come and go
bringing choices
high and low.
The well of life
is there to pull
living essence
filling full.
Let the moments
find their place
the well of life
with saving grace.
Find the waters
pouring strong
in the well
of mornings dawn.
Allow the minutes
that arrive
to fill you with
the well of life.

Silhouette Summer

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

A Flower’s Life

Like a flower
life will bloom
seasons journey
times attune.
With a blossom
time will be
a flower’s life
to surely see.
We are also
seen to show
a flower’s life
and how we grow.
Certain moments
ones perceive
might be turning
of the leaves.
Counted seasons
bring to light
all that’s wrong
and all that’s right.
Like a mirror
time displays
as reflections
of our ways.
On the days
of by and by
our life blooms
a flower’s life.

Wending Away

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

The Gardening Table

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

Pier And Time

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

Winter Memories

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

Haiku
for Jun 16,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Let Your Focus

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

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

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Alternate Universe

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

A Plowed Field

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

Cookout Of Summer

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

Two Dogs Stroll

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

A Cloudy Scene

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

Walk Of Life

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

Rest A While

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

Autumn Dreams

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

Rabbit’s House

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

Portrait Of Love

Our boys remain
our daily joy
as they play
with each dog toy.
They run around
and smile away
seasons sun

A portrait of love

They’re our boys
a gift from above
that’s now esteemed
a portrait of love.

Life Is

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

Summer’s Sight

Passing scenes

finds a sight
a summer’s day.
A summer’s sight

is on a drive
with rolling wheels.
Yellow flowers
show their view
a summer’s sight
from old to new.
Clouds all gather

building stories
summer’s days.
Life’s a doorway
swinging fast
showing seasons
moving past.
As were driving
down the road
summer’s sight
is Heaven’s load.

Whispering Silently

Galaxy matrix
a sight in the stars
finds many planets
that seem like ours.
Sounds as echoes
are slight as can be
planets all gather
and whisper to me.
Speaking of volumes
a scientist view

with our planet blue.
Saturn’s own rings
are timeless around
whirling and twirling
without not a sound.
All of the planets
become such a sight
whispering silently
deep in the night.

Just A View

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

Canvas Of Snow

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

Stranger Worlds

Life is perception

Stranger worlds

Stranger worlds

Billowy White

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

Washed Ashore

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

The Fishing’s Done

As life moves on
and seasons shine
ones head out
to seek a sign.
A fishing place
of timeless hue
as they sail
to sights anew.
The motor roaring
sounds of life

just like a knife.
Cutting waters
to the place
their rods and reels
they do embrace.
But with evenings
setting sun
life’s ashore,
the fishing’s done.

Evening Speaks

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

Haiku
for Jun 10,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Visions of springtime
are often misconceptions
of reality.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We Shall See

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

We Shall See

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

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

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

Message Out To Sea

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

It hides the journey

The scenes you see

Clouds Of Perception

Green grass of nature

There’s many minutes

Haiku
for Jun 1,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Midmorning shadows
display their afterimage
in our memories.

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

Turnstiles of springtime
open up flourishing life
in many colors.

Butterflies flutter
from caterpillars to fly
as changes in spring.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Took Its Toll

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

First and foremost,  Happy Memorial
Weekend.  It’s pretty much the same old
same old around here.  Judy is headed
over to her daughters house for a little
cookout.  I can’t go,  because they don’t
have adequate bathrooms for me to use.
They live on the second floor and there
is no way that I can hoof it up and down
those steps every time I have to go to
the bathroom.  So,  me and the boys will
hang together here at the house.  Plus
I’m sure Judy will be staying there until
late this evening,  which again is not good
for my health issues.  I guess I’ll have to
find something for me and the boys to
do while she’s gone.  Of course,  I’ve
gotta finish this journal LOL.  Life goes
on.  So next topic.  The weather is still
not quite what I would call spring,  but
then most people consider this as the
unofficial first day of summer hehehe
at least up here they do.  Today’s high
is supposed to be 71 F, but as of now
which is 1:18 PM it’s 61 F.  Tomorrow’s
high is supposed to be 59 F.  So you see,
not quite the weather that I grew up with
in Texas LOL.  It’s supposed to be in the
60’s all week into next week LOL.  I’ve
been taking a lot of pictures of springtime
and got quite a few great ones to use for
picture poems.  I have been busy writing
poetry for the pictures as well as Judy’s
paintings that she’s done 🙂  That keeps
me sort of busy.  Other than that,  well,
it’s a day to day scenario.  Well,  it looks
as though writing my journal may take
me a bit longer than normal LOL.  Judy
asked me if she promises to leave by 6 PM
will I go with her and I said sure.  We had
a great time aside from my having to go
upstairs to use the bathroom.  But then
my grandson Christian and I took a little
walk together to take pictures and it was
all up hill.  That took its toll on my old
legs LOL,  but I made it looking for a
place to sit down before I fell down LOL.
Judy and I took a lot of pictures,  but as
usual,  I took A WHOLE LOT more than
her hehehe.  There were hamburgers and
hot dogs along with a million black flies
and mosquitoes.  The black flies were
in attack mode hehehe.  There were a
few screened tents,  but they didn’t help
when you had to go outside of them 🙂
LOL I have bite marks on me all over
my arms and face.  Those little critters
even got behind my glasses which I had
thought would at least slow them down.
Nope,  they commenced as if there was
nothing there LOL.  I sprayed my arms
with OFF,  but that didn’t keep them guys
from attacking everywhere else.  Normally
I’m not bothered with those things,  but
I guess they had not yet gotten a taste
of my blood yet.  They probably went
back to their captain and said,  Hey Cap,
my tummy don’t feel so well.  Then the
Cap says it must of been something you
ate LOL.  Anyways,  like I said,  I ended
up going and we had a pretty good time
considering hehehe.  Benny and Rocky
had to stay home.  There were enough
dogs there and our boys would have been
begging for food and trying to go in their
house where they are not allowed.  So
the boys had to stay home.  They were
OK.  They had each other.  Next topic.
It looks like we might have some new
neighbors.  They came and introduced
themselves to us when we got home.
Though neither Judy nor I can recall
what their names were LOL.  It looks
as though our landlord might be moving
in the house behind us too.  Don’t know
for sure,  but he was hauling in some of
his furniture early this morning.  So who
knows?  Life at the Pearce’s Place will
continue on.  Our new neighbors little
girl hollered from their house asking if
she could pet our dogs 🙂  We said come
on over.  They love kids.  Rocky is a
little shy at first,  but Benny loves to
play with kids.  Actually Benny and
Rocky just love to play hehehe.  Not
much else going on.  Our landlord is
mowing the lawn at the moment.  He
was mowing yesterday evening as well.
It’ll take him a while on that little rider,
but he’s gradually getting it done LOL.
He’s surely stirred up the bugs hehehe.
I’m sure all will be well.  God is always
watching over us.  He gives us many
signs of His power.  Life is a turnstile
with many directions and choices to
make.  Let God through prayer to help
you find the right journey.  Now that
I’m done rambling for the moment,  it’s
time for me to read back through all of
my thoughts 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 that I haven’t used
yet.  So now to see if I am able to do
anything with it.   Here goes……

Took Its Toll

Life of times
that minutes see
become the lives
of you and me.
Weathered scenes
become our view
to find the time
the things to do.
Without a second
a minute counted
time becomes a
waste surmounted.
The trials of life
might be the tools
or things you lost
and made you fools.
For our journeys
need prayerful goal
or they’ll become
what took its toll.

There ya go 🙂  I hope you enjoyed my
rambling and possibly understood and
liked the poem LOL.  Time has a way of
filling me with many thoughts that often
either bore you to tears or entertain you 🙂
It’s a week to week toss up LOL.  Oh well,
my journal and poetry at least gives you
something to read to pass the day hehehe.
So,  what have I forgotten to tell you ???
Hmm,  nothing I can think of other than
what I tell you almost every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers,  10 more poems with 8 extras
due to,  well you know LOL.  There is
1 Christmas poem amongst them that
you might like.  Yes, of course I wrote
22 haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there as well 🙂  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 blessings
filled week and a Happy Memorial day.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Ok,  so where can that ornery off
switch be hiding or trying to hide this
week?  Hmm,  now that’s new,  but not
the greatest hiding spot still.  Hiding
behind my camera thinking I was done
with it might of worked aside from the
fact that you were hiding on the wrong
side of it LOL.  Peekaboo,  I see you.
Gotcha,  see ya,  CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to our brand new books

Blue Skies Of Spring

A day of sunshine
with skies so blue
time’s a display
a wonderful hue.
Blues skies of spring
brings so many sights
scenes of beauty
that I so delight.
Life is a painting
with true love to find
blue skies of spring
with a peaceful mind.
So many moments
are lost in the view
as we look away
from the sky of blue.
Magic is the moment
that comes into place
blue skies of spring
that many will waste.
Look for the beauty
in each minutes scene
find in the moments
blue skies of spring.

Enjoying The Day

Within a field
ones find a place
a day of peace
that times enlace.
As each day’s gone
it leaves a sign
a scenic place
within your mind.
Enjoying the day
needs very little
maybe a wood stick
you can whittle.
The minutes bring
some choices to be
found in our lives
for moments to see.
Don’t let a second
to just fade away,
seek for the blessings
enjoying the day.

Atlantic Dream

Life of a dreamer
is found in a way
a scene so expansive
an Atlantic day.
Seascape dreams
as waves rolling in
time is like magic
where scenes begin.
An imagination

and a breath of air.
A peaceful setting
as times conclude
becomes a memoir
a romantic mood.
Seasons of grandeur
are in the scene

Seagulls Resting

Many seagulls

from the rocks
a moments gaze.
Letting waters
ripple true
peaceful settings
in their view.
A bay of water
holds the scene
seagulls resting
as they dream.
Time is holding
them in place
as they’re seeking
food to taste.
Fishes swimming
deep below
in the waters
to and fro.
Seagulls resting
wait to find
all those fishes
then to dine.

Colors Of Spring

While time moves on
and seasons change
the colors of spring
have much to gain.
For as wintertime
hid them from view
the colors of spring
soon display their hue.
Reds and yellows
and so many more
the colors of spring
give much to explore.
Seen with a camera
or with our own eyes
the colors of spring
have a big surprise.
Displaying portions
of colorful realms
that of the blessings
that might overwhelm.
Scenes such as roses
and colorful flowers
the colors of spring
will go on for hours.
Days will move on
as the colors will grow
highlighting beauty
everywhere they show.
Displaying beauty
the colors of spring
scenes so delightful
that’ll make you sing.

Journey’s Through Life

A passage, a roadway
becomes as a scene
timeless yet counted
as lifetimes extreme.
Seen as a doorway
a time frame bestows
journey’s through life
to moments rainbows.
Mountains may glimmer
so distant your sight,
but as the wheels roll
become Heaven’s light.
Just like a vision
a moments own stage
journey’s through life
are the turn of a page.
Scented with dreamers
and tasted with joy
journey’s through life
give times to deploy.
Textured with blessings
flourished with love
journey’s through life
are a gift from above.

Within A Garden

Some rabbit food
might shine so bright
found in moments
from dark to light.
A few might find
a carrot or two
and edible plant
for ones to chew.
Within a garden
might be seen
a rabbit gnawing
orange and green.
This could be
a personal note
about someone
that rocks your boat.
They might be found
a bite or two
a sight unseen
they hide from you.
Within a garden
might portray
our very lives
from day to day.

One Winter’s Day

The sight of white
on a barn of eve
displays a view
for you to perceive.
A snowman stood
with arms of sticks
flavors the scene
the moment depicts.
One winter’s day
begins with a tale
a storybook time
for you to inhale.
Breathing in love
of a magical scene
one winter’s day
of a painted dream.
It might come alive
as it finds its place
a painting one did
with Heaven’s enlace.
Time is imagined
as it falls away
to be remembered
one winter’s day.

A Faded Door

The memories
throughout our lives
display what all
of which survives.
A faded door
that is exposed
is painted with
the life we chose.
A scented place
with memories
a faded door
can be disease.
So let the past
to find the truth
a moments time
within our youth.
A faded door
that opened wide
might be the life
you let inside.

In the well house

Underground

Sunshine Shines

Seen above the clouds
is a sight to behold
a scene that’s so magical
as it does unfold.
Filled with endearment
the sunshine scene
becomes as a wonderful
time to be seen.
The sunshine shines
as a passionate flower
displayed in the sky
for eyes to devour.
For it was sleeping
behind clouds of white
when all of the sudden
it came into sight.
It’s life in the making
as some wonderful times
the sight of the day
as the sunshine shines.

Remembered times
of a long ago
amidst a dream

This Old House

Grasses of time
have grown so high
as time began
its daily sigh.
A house displays
its only words
the signs of times
as a nest of birds.
Within its silence
it speaks a phrase
this old house
of distant days.
Its words are true
for they complete
the scenery
that times accrete.
It gives a view
of times gone by
while attempting
to not run dry.
It is a life
of times arouse
just like ones lives
as this old house.

Peaceful Pond

Some cattails live

within a pond

Ducks are gone,
but shall return

this peaceful pond
of now and then.
It has a voice
of fluttered birds
this peaceful pond
of many words.

season’s dream.
It felt so great

It brought me joy

Haiku
for May 27,  2017

Life is a moment
that might pass you by quickly
if you’re not looking.

A flower will bloom
often without any help,
but it needs water.

Tomorrows minutes
are not counted as of yet,
for they are not here.

As the winds will blow
they’ll leave their imprint in life
as some scattered leaves.

Horrid emotions
come from unsteady shadows
in the things you’ve done.

Memories of life
are as violets blooming
painting a picture.

Seasons of roses
become petals of colors
forming a passion.

Times winding doorways
open and close with choices
for us to perceive.

Beyond perception
is a place hidden in scenes
that might elude us.

Opportunities
are moments that come knocking,
but not always good.

Glimmers of winter
reflect within many minds
in the summer heat.

Blades of grass are found
with some weeds wanting to live
while they kill the grass.

Believing in spirits
is a personal insight
that lets them to speak.

Shortsighted people
do not see the light shining,
but only right now.

Mindset of desire
can either gain much trouble
or keep perspective.

Living in a dream
will often create nightmares,
if the dream’s not real.

Bobbing in water
as a fisherman’s lure
can attract trouble.

Time on a journey
brings us pathways to be seen
or be avoided.

Dandelions grow
disguised as many flowers,
but yet they are weeds.

Semblance of pathways
create many illusions
that we might not see.

People united
can become greater by far,
but not always good.

Various lifestyles
are not what they seem to be,
due to deception.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a fairly nice passed week.  The
temperature has been staying slightly on
the cool side other than of course what we
had Thursday and it got up in mid 80’s F
then.  It’s 62 F right now at 2:44 PM. Not
too bad if I don’t say so myself LOL 🙂
We’ve had rain off and on almost every
other day,  but for the passed couple of
days it has been sunny.  It looks like we
won’t get any more rain until the end of
the week.  It’s supposed to be in the 50’s
and 60’s most of the week.  Wednesday
shows a high of 71 though LOL,  but that
isn’t too bad 🙂   Our grandson just went
home.  His mom brought him over Friday
and he spent the weekend with us.  We
always enjoy having him visit with us 🙂
So onwards with the journal.  Judy and
I took a trip to town Monday and bought
a few groceries and Judy stopped off at
her brothers bank to take care of some
business.  We got rained on there and to.
LOL we didn’t melt.  The grass has turned
green finally and the old dandelions have
begun their takeover of the field hehehe.
Judy went down south to Bangor with her
sisters Tuesday and while she was gone
I took my conga drums outside for a little
videoing.  The rains had ceased by then 🙂
I left the front door open so that the boys
could come out or go inside whichever
they wanted while I did a couple of videos.
The wind was blowing profusely.  There
are times when I was talking that you
could barely hear me over the wind LOL.
The videos came out pretty well none the
less.  Wednesday Judy and I took the boys
out for a little field trip.  We got some
much needed exercise and the boys had a
blast running and playing.  We took a lot
of pictures as we usually do hehehe.  It was
a beautiful day.  Though the black flies
were beginning to bug us.  Yep,  it’s time
for the bugs to start coming out of hiding.
Many of the pictures came out awesome.
Friday I decided to do a few selfies in the
dandelions and then a few scenic pictures.
Soon Judy and I will be taking a photo
drive to take some pictures of the scenery
around Maine.  We’ve already got a few
places that we are talking about driving to.
I can’t wait.  I love to ride around and
look for scenery to take pictures of 🙂
I am so glad that I no longer have to use
film cameras LOL.  I cannot count the
pictures that were lost due to either over
exposure,  under exposure,  forgetting
to take off the lens cap,  or the film being
messed up due to heat.  Plus I do not
miss only have maybe only 24 pictures
to take and then when I am changing out
the film,  a photo opt comes and no can
do.  Yep,  I love my digital camera.  It is
rare that I run out of space on my camera
card LOL,  BUT,  I have once or twice 🙂
Most times it was due to me doing a lot
of videos along with pictures.  So what
else is going here at the Pearce’s Place?
Good question.  The only answer I have
is I’ve been busy writing more poetry
pictures and Judy has been busy with
her painting and crafts.  I’m halfway
done with all of the poetry pictures that
I need for book number 4 🙂  Yep,  it’s
looking like I might get them all written
by next month and then if all goes well,
get it published.  Our other three books
are still not selling well.  We’re hoping
that they start one day soon.  Also Judy’s
books are not selling well.  We’re still
hoping and praying that they one day
or another begin to start selling.  Until
then,  we’ll just keep on keeping on
doing what we love to do and that is
write,  paint and take pictures 🙂  Yep,
life goes on.  Judy’s fixing us dinner
right now.  Actually it’s leftovers from
last night,  (Spaghetti).  Judy made it
for us yesterday and it tasted great then.
It seems to always taste better when
it is reheated for some reason hehehe.
There’s not much else to yammer about.
The boys are as ornery as ever and they
keep us on our toes.  God is still with
His Mighty Hands watching over us
and protecting us as He sends many
angels to look after us in our daily
lives.  LOL,  Rocky just ran in here
just a huffing and puffing and now he’s
sitting right behind me on the legs of
my chair.  He just got up and ran out
of the room again,  I’m thinking, looking
for Benny LOL.  Benny’s more than
likely lying on his favorite recliner 🙂
They do keep us busy.  We thank God
for their little paw prints in our home.
So,  I reckon it’s time for me to begin
my travels 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
may have found a good title just about
2/3rds back in my writing and it looks
like I have not used it yet,  so here goes.

Blowing Profusely

Minutes partaken
are moments in time
sometimes a windstorm
a season we find.
Blowing profusely
the timetables scream
lifetimes remembered
a fast rushing stream.
Seen as a pothole
a view comes to be
blowing profusely
the things that we see.
Life needs a breather
to then settle down
less of the blowing
firm feet on the ground.
Found as a passage
we might be dismayed
blowing profusely
the messes we made.
Life has a doorway
to leave or go through
to find better lifestyles
that fit within you.
Blowing profusely
can become as a war
so take a little breath,
and be better by far.
Let God to help you
to find peace of mind
without all the blowing
of your time to time.

There ya go.  Yes I know,  it might be a
little confusing,  but it does make sense.
🙂 I guess I’ve got a weird way of putting
things.  Oh well, if you didn’t understand
it,  then,  sorry hehehe.  Well,  both of the
boys are in here now.  They’re lying in the
floor right between Judy and I.  LOL they
were wanting some of her spaghetti,  but
none from me LOL.  I ate all of mine.  She
gave them a couple of her meatballs LOL.
I’ve been chatting with a friend while I’ve
been trying to write this which has slowed
me down a tad.  It’s almost 8 PM now 🙂
The temperature has dropped a few degrees
too.  It’s 59 F degrees now.  There doesn’t
seem to be anything good to watch on TV
tonight other than maybe Family Feud 🙂
So,  I might do some picture poems after
I get  done here.  I can’t think of anything
else to tell you other than what I tell you
almost every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
10 more poems with an added 2, which
ups the count to 12 and 1 of the poems
is a Christmas poem.  I also wrote once
again 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 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.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Now,  where can that ornery off
switch be hiding this week?  LOL hiding
is putting it loosely.  Anyways,  hmm,  I
think I see movement from behind my
external hard drive which isn’t really that
hard being it is almost flat LOL.  You
would think you could find a better place
to hide wouldn’t ya 🙂  Nope,  didn’t think
so LOL.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzz.

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

A Day Of Spring

As life begins
from winter’s grasp
a day of spring
begins its task.
With trees to show
their leaves display
with budding life
of day to day.
The hours pass
with more to see
as spring unlocks
with seasons key.
Within my gaze
I see some clouds
a day of spring
as seasons shrouds.
They seem to form
a sweet design
with life to bring
the sights to dine.
The grasses grow
to make a scene
life of beauty
a day of spring.

As Summer Ends

Life of summer
gives its best
then by Autumn
seeks to rest.
Leaves of green
will soon display
colors changing
in a way.
Brown to yellow
change the scenes
with some other
colored schemes.
With dear autumn
around the bend
change begins
as summer ends.

Bridge Of Summer

Life as a mirror
reflects such a scene
a time that is clearer
than that of a dream.
It lives as emotions
with people displayed
time unto time
as lifestyles are made.
A bridge of summer
that is found explored
as many will walk
harmonious accord.
Some looking down
to the waters that flow
and reflect for a time
on their shadows below.
The bridge of summer
gives forth many things
as sights come to life
as some daily routines.
Some stand and watch
all the water up under
while they’re atop of
the bridge of summer.

Coral Sky

Morning brings colors
of sunshine intense
scenes in the clouds
as minutes commence.
Reflections of sunlight
with colorful hues
some seeming pinkish,
some hazy blues.
Yet as a painting
of God’s own desire
the sky turns to coral
as a magical fire.
The minutes recorded
within what we see
become as a memoir
of our history.
For we will remember
the clouds way up high
as mornings of then
a great coral sky.

As Time Bestows

A field of green
and sky of blue
displays a scene
a time come true.
With just a gaze
of moments sight
the time bestows
some clouds in flight.
One stands to see
the moments trail
with clouds of white
in seasons sail.
With just a glance
of times displays
there’s many signs
of summer’s days.
Within a field
a moment grows,
so many sights
as time bestows.

The Light Of Day

A seasoned time
of waves that roll
begins to find
the oceans goal.
The light of day
becomes a feat
a scenic day
in summer’s heat.
With every wave
on oceans mind
the stage is set
with its design.
A summer’s day
that none compare
becomes alive
as seasoned air.
A shiny glimmer
of times display
shows the sight
the light of day.

Through The Clouds

While clouds of day
hid the sun from sight
there were some times
I’d see its light.
A little bit hazy,
but shining through
the sun so bright
displayed its view.
Through the clouds
it gave me a gaze
a scene to see
of winters days.
It burned so bright,
but seemed so dim,
the sun still shined
within its whim.
This I remember
as winter’s shrouds
scenes I could see
on through the clouds.

Ready For Christmas

A snowy white day
brings forth a scene,
a sight in my mind,
a wonderful dream.
The seasons sunshine
is as a bright beacon
shining my hopeful
that will never weaken.
The  time is a page
of a wintertime book
ready for Christmas
a seasonal look.
A time when hearts
are beating with passion
that joyful memoir
a little old fashioned.
I’m ready for Christmas
and all of its glory
as I wait here today
to hear that great story.
The story of Christmas
as magic to my ears
displays all the blessings
that I hold so dear.
The songs of Christmas
and seasons white snow
I yearn to hear now
on the old radio.
I’m ready for Christmas
with heart beating fast
while I’m dreaming
of it’s wonderful past.

Summer’s Flowers

Home sweet home
the flowers grow
brightest yellow
as they flow.
Like a river
in my view
summer’s flowers
brightest hue.
Lost perceptions
show the hours
timeless views of
summer’s flowers.
Dandelions
come in strong
with their artwork
like a song.
Strumming fiddles
like time’s violin
they in springtime
do begin.
Sung as seasons
poured as seas
summer’s flowers
are just weeds.

Like The Wind

Our two dogs
they have much fun
in the field with
summer’s sun.
They don’t worry,
they just play
loving brothers
day to day.
In the field
they search around
for some moments
to be found.
With their noses
in the air,
they head on
without a care.
They are truly
mans best friend
as they’re running
like the wind.

The Sound Of Music

With just a rhythm
and words added on
the sound of music
is a remembered song.
Songs of a decade
that ones do conceive
become as the pattern
as songster’s perceive.
The songs on the radio
of time frames in tune
become as the passage
as a hot air balloon.
Floating in the skies
with songs that we sing,
summer to autumn,
and winter to spring.
A musical blessing
with a lifelong heartbeat
is the sound of music
for ones dancing feet.

Leaves Of Autumn

Years of time
become a sight
passing scenes
of days sunlight.
Found so often
colors scene
orange to yellow
shades of green.
Leaves of autumn
bring their style
giving many
a moment’s smile.
All the colors
are combined
filling up a
dreamers mind.
Scenes of grandeur
come here often
stages set for
leaves of autumn.

Haiku
for May 18,  2017

Ages will billow
as clouds found high in the skies
just passing us by.

When beside yourself
look within your reflection
and then choose your stride.

Without a doorway
use the windows of your mind
to see what is true.

Inside of a cloud
holds many true perspectives
that can change at will.

Beyond our insights
lives a variety of thoughts
that might live and breathe.

The shadows of fall
are as colorful moments
that we remember.

A lesson not learned
is doomed to be repeated
till something happens.

Time on a journey
is a passageway through life
filled with surprises.

A flower’s conceived
and then perceived as beauty
to fill up our eyes.

Grasses of summer
become filled with many weeds
if they’re not cared for.

One without thinking
can become as dynamite
waiting to explode.

Two’s just a number
that means nothing without trust,
for then it is one.

Losing direction
can find a new direction
through trial and error.

Life in a moment
can become spectacular
if you allow it.

Our sought after dreams
are often but only dreams
that cannot be true.

Dispelling sorrow
needs acceptance of moments
to then find some peace.

The troubles of life
are the teachers with lessons
building perspective.

A rose is a rose
as a person’s a person
no matter the life.

Disfigured pleasures
can turn into a sideshow
for others to watch.

When blowing bubbles
some of them might blow away
and others will pop.

The mind of a man
is often put with others
in comparison.

When the sun is seen
it gives hope for a new day
no matter the view.

Pouring Rain

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
and
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY

It’s looking more and more like spring
with each day that passes.  Yep,  but the
temperature is still bouncing around a
bit hehehe.  Today’s high is supposed to
be 58,  but right now at 3:30 PM it’s 53.
Of course that is Fahrenheit,  not Celsius
or centigrade which is one of the same 🙂
Nope,  but it looks like we might have
one day in the 80’s and that is Thursday,
but after that it’s back to the 60’s  LOL
tomorrow’s high is supposed to be 48 F.
Talk about weird hehehe.  It’s raining
slightly right now.  Sort of a mist.  It’s
supposed to rain quite a bit tomorrow.
That might explain the temperature drop.
So,  what else is going on up this ways?
Well to be perfectly honest with you,
it’s been sort of a quiet week around
here.  Yesterday (Friday) I decided to
do a little conga drumming video for
my Youtube,  so I carried my old conga
drums outside and did a little video and
took a few pictures.  Judy was over at
her sister’s house for craft night,  so it
was just me and the boys.  I left the
front door opened so they could run in
and out as they desired while I did my
video.  They just wandered around the
driveway and Benny stayed focused on
our landlords granddaughter that was
playing next door LOL.  He loves that
little girl.  The video didn’t come out
as well as I had wanted being I forgot
to change the video format on my
camera hehehe.  So the video came out
in 320×240 instead of 620×480.  It was
just a tad smaller than I had wanted,
but it’ll do 🙂  Me and the boys hung
out and played for a bit after I finished
my video and then we went back inside.
I wrote some more poetry pictures or
poems to many of you that do not do
Facebook or have yet to of bought a
book and have never seen any of my
picture poems hehehe.  Yep,  I stay
busy writing.  Believe it or not,  writing
the poem is not the hard part (for me).
It’s the formatting the poem into the
pictures that often gives me a headache.
I do though enjoy doing them.  They
help my mind to stay alive.  It’s now
48 F degrees at 3:49 PM.  Boy that’s
what I call a drop in temperature LOL.
5 degrees in 19 minutes hehehe.Judy’s
over at her computer doing our census.
It came in the mail yesterday.  I just
went and checked on the net and the
census for where we live and it says
that the population for New Limerick
Maine was 490 at the 2010 census 🙂
We live in a small community/town.
Life out in the boonies has it’s good
and bad points.  The good part is that
we have a lot of privacy and I can play
my conga drums whenever I want to.
Plus the boys can run around outside
freely without worry of being hit by
a car.  The bad part is that we have to
drive 8 miles into town to buy anything
if it’s not on the internet LOL.  We do
a lot of our shopping on the internet,
but ya can’t buy groceries and Pizza
Hut don’t deliver this far out in the
boonies hehehe.  Today is Mother’s
Day and I’ll call my mom this evening
and wish her a Happy Mother’s Day.
I hope you will call your mom if you
are able.  If they are in Heaven then
send your wishes to them,  because
they are surely watching over you and
will hear you.  Well it’s pouring rain
now.  Good thing I didn’t open the
windows LOL.  I hear of friends down
south complaining about the heat LOL.
I tell them, come on up,  no heat here.
I tried to get Benny to come out for
a field trip with me yesterday,  but he
was just too involved in watching our
landlords little granddaughter hehehe.
Rocky wanted to come out,  but he
also wanted Benny to come out with
us.  Maybe some time this week if it’s
not too wet.  Today,  Judy and I went
to town and bought a dozen donuts
at Dunkin Donuts and then made a
trip to Walmart to buy a few groceries
and buy a new tire air gauge being
it seems the other one was worn out.
Then we went to a station and I put
air in the tires so that the air pressure
light would go off LOL.  After that,
we headed home.  The light for the tire
air pressure finally went off after we
drove a mile or two.  I was beginning
to think that I might have put the
wrong amount of air in the tires LOL.
So we got home and let the boys out
of their cages and they went running
out the front door to see Judy while
bouncing around like rubber balls 🙂
We couldn’t bring them being I knew
we would have many stops and I was
afraid that if we left them in the car
with donuts while we went in to shop,
they might hop over the divider and
eat them LOL.  I know,  we could of
gotten groceries first and the donuts
last,  but still again,  food LOL.  They
were OK staying at home.  When we
told them,  get in your crates,  they
both sort of frowned and walked over
and got in their crates.  No argument
at all 🙂  Benny often uses his for an
indoor doghouse anyways LOL.  We
love our little boys.  They make us
happy.  Judy just now grabbed her
camera to go and take a picture of the
rain LOL.  The boys went running
with her.  We might not have much,
but we have each other and God lives
in our home and in our hearts.  Now
I believe it’s time for me to look back
over all that I’ve written here to see if
I can find me a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s
brand new poem.  So it’s away I go
to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  It looks like I might have
found a good title and now after
checking I seems I’ve used a similar
one,  but not the same,  so here goes.
I hope it comes out making some form
of sense hehehe.

Pouring Rain

With every life
comes time set free
minutes counted
you and me.
Troubles come
and troubles go
as pouring rain
will fall and flow.
Certain scenes
of our accord
need us then to
climb aboard.
Pouring rain
can bring to view
lightning striking
and rainbows too.
Even thunder
with its roar
has its beauty
to explore.
Pouring rain
can give us peace
if we let the
storms to cease.
Through its beauty
raindrops fall.
pouring rain
can then enthrall.
Giving sleep time’s
very best
God’s own blessings
time for rest.

I hope that made sense to ya LOL.  If
not,  then oh well.  Maybe next week.
I hope you enjoyed my rambling.  Yes,
I know,  I tend to talk about nothing
for a bit hehehe.  Hey,  no one said that
I was the best writer.  LOL far from it.
The rain has slacked off a bit now.  The
temperature has dropped 2 more degrees
as well.  Yeppers,  it’s 45 F degrees now.
Not quite the springs that I grew up with.
I do though prefer these temps.  Those
hot days of Texas are something that
I can do without LOL.  I reckon I have
told you about all that’s going on in
the Pearce’s Place.  So, I guess it’s time
for me to be telling you what I tell you
every week and that is I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10
more poems with an added (drum roll
please rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr) 10 hehehe.
I seem to have kicked into overdrive
in my writing as I find pictures that
give me ideas LOL.  Yes I wrote 22
more haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  No extras there hehehehe.
So I guess it’s time now for me to be
searching for that ornery off switch,
but not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or whatever is left of it and a
truly blessing filled week.  Also I want
to wish all of the moms out there a
truly HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now where is that silly switch
hiding or better yet trying to hide?
Hmm,  I think I saw something under
Benny’s head as he raised it up to see
what I was doing.  Yep,  there ya are.
It might of worked,  but I think Benny
was raising his head up because you
didn’t make a good pillow and also
the fact that him and Rocky needed
to go potty LOL.  Anyways,  hehehe,
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

A Scenic View

The life of light
in skies above
is filled with truth
and so much love.
It paints a scene
as clouds will form
a scenic view
to then be born.
Life that moves
as time bestows
becomes a sight
that surely grows.
A scenic view
as a book of time
is found within
a scene sublime.
With shades of gray
and others within
a scenic view
will then begin.
It continues
to then accrue
a gift from God
a scenic view.

Seeking The Pier

When waves are crashing
upon your each day
don’t let the moments
to make you all gray.
Look passed the waves
and see where to strive
while seeking the pier
to keep you alive.
Time can become as
a portion of pain,
but seeking the pier
can display your gain.
Move a steady course
in the ocean of life
and don’t let it fill you
with struggling strife.
When seeking the pier
a day can expose
the scent of the ocean
as a sweet smelling rose.

Cracks Of Life

Weathered grounds
we’ve stood upon
might become as
nearly gone.
Cracks of life
we’ve seen each day
might be life
a weathered way.
A time of life
that washed about
as ones seek
a way to get out.
A moment of sorrow,
a moment of pain,
the cracks of life
might drive us insane.
Yet a mere moment
might find fresh air
through cracks of life
a moment of prayer.

Painted Dandelions

They might seem real
to watch them sway
and take pictures
day after day.
But they’re portrayed
a persons design
painted dandelions
left from a time.
Their color has turned
and left in its place
the white of the seeds
for life to embrace.
Painted dandelions
create such a view
a scene so supreme
with a wonderful hue.
They go from yellow
to white of the seeds

Old Dog Of Mine

Back years ago
when I was so young
I had a good dog
with a life begun.
She was my friend
the greatest of all
as time went by
what I now recall.
Those days she ran
in our backyard
back and forth
and near and far.
She was always
there for me
those distant days
of my history.
We grew together

Upon A Pole

One day I saw
a bird up high
upon a pole
not wished to fly.
It sat and watched
me down below
while he smiled
to say hello.
This pole of light
was found secure
to give this bird
a scenic tour.
Its timely stance
was there upon

to soon be gone.
It soon was then
in flight so high
with its wings

My eyes they search
for sights of God
within the scenes
I do applaud.
I see His hands
in everything
the sights and sounds
of each great scene.
A scenic quest
my eyes are on
day to night
and dusk to dawn.
I might see signs
of mountains high
or scenes of birds
up in the sky.
I might see signs
of wonderful things
such as the rhythm
of rushing streams.
The stage is set
the very best
the sights I find
a scenic quest.

Old Front Door

Seen as a shadow
an old photograph,
I see a picture
of our distant past.
It’s our old door
to a day and time
a place far away
found on my mind.
Our old front door
a Christmas view
that I remember
so timeless true.
It’s painted now
inside of my brain
our old front door
that times attain.
It is a place
from long ago
our old front door
we used to know.

Clouds Will Speak

Scenes are displayed
fluffy and white
clouds like oceans
sunshine in sight.
Points of perception
become as a style
formed as a picture
seen as a smile.
Clouds will speak
with words of phrase
that of emotions
found within days.
Time is a porthole
with minutes desire
found in the sunshine
as moments acquire.
Life is a journal
that’s written in time
as clouds all billow
their daily design.
The sky is a canvass
for time to accrete
giving the pages
as clouds will speak.

Winter’s Last Glance

Rivers of winter
are snow melting fast,
scenes all enlightened
as remembered past.
Left from the season
is a watery flow,
winter’s last glance
of the fast melting snow.
It is but a doorway
for springtime to view
as a page from a book
with a watery hue.
The words are written
as a pure text of white
displaying snow
as it melts out of sight.
A pathway,  a doorway
to life’s song and dance
springtime’s beginning
and winter’s last glance.

Haiku
for May 13,  2017

Lost in a dreamworld
reality might get lost
and display false hope.

Challenge of a day
begins with a place and time
to show its true self.

Losing direction
could find you then returning
to where you started.

Looking for someone
might uncover some bad choices
that you may have made.

Peace is from within
for a war might be your sight
that you need to change.

Life’s like a flower
that can either wilt away
or become beauty.

Believing in love
doesn’t make it as a fact,
for it needs the truth.

Without some water
a plant would shrivel and die
leaving only dust.

Tomorrows pathway
might not be clearly seen now
so take time for prayer.

As the sun beckons
it gives life within its view
to blossom flowers.

As doorways open,
then too, others will find end
filled with memories.

Someone’s losing streak
might turn out to be a win
with what all they learned.

Without our mistakes
the lessons would not exist
and we would not grow.

A trail that we’ve found
might lead to nowhere at all,
so don’t burn bridges.

Today’s twists and turns
could become life’s straitened roads
hidden in a thought.

A heart that’s empty
cannot contain any love,
for it needs Jesus.

Dreaming of Heaven
can be an enlightenment
of life after death.

Forgiving others
is a good pathway to choose,
but forgive you too.

Thoughts can become life
and turn into a nightmare
if you allow them.

The storms in your life
might be but only rainbows
to make you stronger.

Winds of time are life
that show us our directions
with God at the helm.

Chances are given,
but many are not noticed
because of choices.

Life Memories

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

This passed week has been mostly full
of rain,  but there was one day of that
old sunshine and I loved it.  Today it’s
mostly cloudy and windy as all get out.
The sun’s out there somewhere and it
pokes its head out ever so often hehehe.
It’s 62 F degrees right now with a high
forecasted as 65,  but tomorrows high
is supposed to be 52 F and of course,
100% more rain LOL.  I was unable to
get much of any sleep this morning due
to aches and pains,  so I came in here
and sat a while.  I brought the boys
in here with me and shut the door so
that they would let Judy sleep.  So,
Benny laid down in his doggy bed,
but Rocky camped out right in front
of the door listening for Judy LOL.
She finally got up and Rocky began
spinning in circles from excitement 🙂
They love their mom hehehe.  Next
topic.  I have a copy of my new book.
It came out very nice.  One of my
friends in Texas called me late last
night all excited.  He got home late
and found his copy of my book was
waiting for him at the his front door.
He was literally ecstatic.  Anyways,
as I said,  the book came out great 🙂
Judy also published a new book called
Stardust and Faeries which is a follow
up of one of her previous books titled
Moonlight and Owls.  LOL we’re just
a couple of writers striving to sell some
of our books.  Judy has done many
more paintings and yes I have written
many more poetry pictures or picture
poems,  how ever ya wanna say it LOL.
Yep,  I’m already about a 3rd of the way
done with book number 4 🙂 hehehehe.
Boy that wind is really blowing hard
outside.  The tarp that I had put over
the benches and the boys doghouse
has blown to pieces and it’s flapping in
the breeze.  Also the kiddy/dog pool
that I had set on top of them all has
blown off and is now lying on the
grown upside down with but only the
rainwater that collected on it to keep
it from blowing away.  It might end
up in Canada before it’s over with 🙂
We really need to buy the boys a new
doghouse,  but they do spend more
time inside than outside hehehe.  We
might one day when we have enough
money to spare.  For now the little
doghouse we bought for Benny back
in 2012 will do.  There’s not much
new going on around here.  It seems
that Judy and I have learned to use
our gifts as a bond.  She paints and
I put words to her paintings.  She’s
now in the living room working on a
craft.  I thought I would get an early
start on this journal.  Though I am
chatting with a friend at the same
time.  Also Rocky is right behind me
wanting me to play with him.  He’ll
have to wait LOL.  Things are banging
around outside from the wind blowing.
Rather noisy.  Also,  Judy hung her
wind chimes up in the window and they
are chiming away.  They’re another
of her many crafts.  She’s just getting
good at many things.  All I’m good
at is poetry,  photography,  playing
the drums and being a pain in the
butt LOL.  None the less I do stay
busy.  It’s looking more and more
like springtime outside,  but there’s
still not many trees with leaves on
them aside from the evergreens and
such.  The grass has begun to turn
green.  Now just waiting for those
sneeze weeds to start popping up 🙂
You know which ones I’m talking
about hehehe.  I do though enjoy
the colors that decorate the field
when the dandelions and daisies
start making their appearance 🙂
Thank You God for all that You
give us to enjoy that comes with
the seasons of the year.  They make
magnificent photographs and life
memories.  I guess it’s time for me
to take a little trip back through
all of my rambling to see if I can
find a good word or phrase that
I can use for the title for today’s
brand new poem.  So,  it’s away I
go to that place of my recollection
that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a decent
title just a few lines back that will
work for today’s poem and now
after checking I see I have not used
it yet,  so,  here goes…….

Life Memories

Links to our lives
as the oceans waves
flourish a heartbeat
of distant days.
Maybe a four legged
time that has passed
displays the memories
that went by too fast.
Those seasons of life
that time had displayed
become as a blessing
our Father had made.
Links as a chain
might find a little rust
as our life memories
will attempt to adjust.
Don’t let the moments
to pass you on by.
Seek for the lessons
of who, where and why.
Let the life memories
to not fade away,
for they are of part of
who you are today.

Ok,  so there ya go.  I hope you liked
the poem.  I also hope you enjoyed my
rambling.  Yes I know,  I tend to talk
about our books quite a bit.  Hey I’m
very proud of them 🙂  We might not be
top publishing authors,  but we’re doing
our best.  Maybe 1 day LOL.  After I’m
dead and gone HaHaHa.  Judy is back
in here now.  The cheap sewing machine
that I bought many years ago wouldn’t
work.  To the trash.  It was a cheap little
thing that looked good on the internet,
but when I got it found it was not as
good as I thought it would be.  LOL
but then it only cost me around $15 🙂
and that was including shipping hehehe.
So Judy said,  back to the old needle
and thread by hand LOL.  She’ll get
it done.  Well I guess it’s time for me
to be telling you what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers 10
more poems with an added 8 due to
my work on picture poems.  Hopefully
you can visualize the pictures as you
read the poems.  LOL other wise you
will just have to buy our books hehehe.
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 wonderful weekend or whatever’s
left of it and a truly blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Now,  where is that
silly off switch trying to hide this time?
Hmm,  (scratching my head) where
can that little varmint be hiding????
LOL,  I see ya,  you silly thing.  Trying
to hide behind my cameras piled up
on my printer huh hehehe.  It might
of worked aside from the issue of you
not being able to blend in with them.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to our brand new books
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures,
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures 2
and Pearce’s Poetry Pictures 3
is at the end of the journal along
with all of the others.  Enjoy 🙂
Please buy our book 😉
PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+8 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

The Ballerina

This one that dances
on toes in sight
is the ballerina
a magical flight.
She dances around
like a little angel
as the ballerina
a time to untangle.
She might reach up
to touch the stars
like the ballerina
is mimicking Mars.
Twirling around
on her tippy toes
as the ballerina’s
life surely flows.
She might be seen
as a moment in space
as the ballerina
dances with grace.

Exploring

We find our ways
to look beyond
our own ways
from dusk to dawn.
Exploring sights
we dream about
as life’s discovered
without a doubt.
Exploring oceans
and outer space,
the scenes we seek
from place to place.
Seeking for life
of another way,
but yet that life
might now display
The living breathing
lives we seek
might be the ones
we see each week.
We’re all unique
as time flies by
seeking for answers
who, where and why.

Summer Beckons

Certain scenes
a timeless view
displays the sights
a dream come true.
Summer beckens
things to see
a river flowing
true and free.
Trees of green
right then unfold
the stage is set
a story’s told.
Summer beckens
life goes on
to paint a scene
for duck and swan.
Life’s a journey
timeless true
to display things
for us to view.

River Flowing

Like a river
lives are flowing
with their details
time’s bestowing.
Scenes become
a certain flair
headed out to
who knows where.
A river flowing
like a mind
scenes of dreams
to then unwind.
Stories written
many read
waters rampant
to succeed.
A river flowing
giving breath
life’s encounters
more or less.
Now’s a moment
often growing
as a lifestyle
river flowing.

Winter’s Recital

A time I remember
a time I recall
is a magical moment
that came after fall.
Winter’s recital
in a wondrous display
brought many scenes
in a whitish array.
Performance enhanced
with a seasons delight
seeming as a painting
a magical sight.
Christmas beginnings
with a so scenic flair
as winter’s recital
a new breath of air.
Snow was billowing
a Christmassy view
life of the season
so fresh and anew.
Time was depicted
within a photograph
as winter’s recital
of a so distant past.

Road Through Winter

Life of a moment
lives as a thought,
timeless emotions
that cannot be bought.
A seasonal second
that minutes display,
a momentous journey
to wintertime’s day.
A road through winter
as a simple memory
becomes as a doorway
our inner sights see.
Such as a road that’s
seasoned with snow,
enhanced as a journey
that surely will grow.
Life of a moment
can become anything,
a time you remember
beginning of spring.
A road through winter
can display a view,
a time so sublime
that surely comes true.

This Little Barn

Passing days
of timeless views
bring in sight
a weathered hue.
A little barn
within our drive
seems to say
it’s still alive.
This little barn
it has big a heart
weathered true
but still in art.
The life it shows
is in its wood
reddish color
where it stood.
Time was found
a moments yarn
of which detailed
this little barn.

So Christmassy

A scene a theme
that comes in sight,
it seems so great
it’s what I delight.
It is so Christmassy
times that display,
the magical moments
of wintertime’s day.
Christmas snow flakes
that landed on trees,
encompassing times
as awesome as these.
Life is abundant
so fluffy and white,
found so Christmassy
each day and night.
Times are recorded
as greatest we’ve seen,
life so Christmassy
it must be a dream.

Field Of Flowers

Like a painting
my eyes see
a field of flowers
life set free.
As a memoir
life is made
many blessings
then displayed.
A field of flowers
painted true
found within
my wildest view.
Scenic colors
open wide
a field of flowers
time applied.
So much scented
with a gaze
a field of flowers
summers days.

Painted Ocean

Life of blue skies
lives and breathes
as it highlights
deep blue seas.
A painted ocean
comes in view
scenic wonders
painted blue.
Time’s a place mat
serving style
waves a crashing
scenes compile.
Life of artwork
falls in place
with the help of
saving grace.
God gives many
things to see
timeless ventures
for you and me.
A painted ocean
finds the frame
within minutes

Bedtime Story

Found in a book
words do describe
a dream so supreme
with life deep inside.
A story of Heaven,
a story of peace.
A story of lifestyles
time can’t release.
Within the book
is a great mystery
a time so complete
you truly can see.
A bedtime story
so many times told
a dream so supreme
that lifetimes unfold.

God’s Trail

Some paths we find
are not so great
they only make us
hesitate.
Yet some paths
some tracks of time
are made by God
with things to find.
God’s trail is seen
when time is ceased
and life we live
is then released.
We might find tracks
that have a train
a locomotive
with much pain.
But the courses
that we go
will find God’s trail
to rightly flow.

Waves Of Thunder

Through our lives
we might be found
always seeking
solid ground.
Waves of thunder
churn and roar
as we’re seeking
safe ashore.
God gives strength
to go through time
waves of thunder
that we find.
When life’s crashing
as you’re rowing
your life boat
is truth bestowing.
Time might become
hard to see,
but you’ll make it
Heavenly.
Waves of thunder
cannot win
if you let God
enter in.

Stormy Sunset

Whirling twirling
signs of strife
might be signs
a change of life.
A stormy sunset
that you view
might be signs
of something new.
A tornado
spinning around
might be time to
seek safe ground.
A stormy sunset
life alone
might be signs
you need atone.
Passed days living
might display
a stormy sunset
shade of gray.
Let some peace to
fall in place
a stormy sunset
saved by grace.

Summer Of Life

Cows in a pasture,
horses there too
seasons own threshold
is given to view.
Spring brought to life
a doorway of scenes
as summer of life
enhances the greens.
It seems as a stage
that came into sight
a scene that is filled
with summer delight.
Time’s but an essence
of life giving flow
as summer displays
the things that will grow.
A moment that finds
a peaceful array
summer of life
such a wonderful way.

Summer Cruise

Spring is finding
life of times
a summer cruise
with inner minds.
Cycling down
a timeless way
a summer cruise
that’s within May.
Springtime’s fancy
sounds are clear
as the echoes
yesteryear.
A summer cruise
throughout time
displays journeys
a scenic sign.
The connections
thereunto
brings to life
a wondrous view
The road’s alive
that ones ride on
as a passage
dusk from dawn.

A Springtime Day

Greens and yellows
blossoms bloom
a springtime day
in the afternoon.
Dandelions spreading
in a field of green
is a springtime day
a wonderful scene.
Seeming as a painting
with a magical hue
a springtime day
comes into view.
Alive with chirping
of birds in flight
a springtime day
is an awesome sight.
It seems as Heaven
with colors of gold
a springtime day
to most surely behold.

Winter Becomes

A page in a book
as a turn of time
becomes as a stage
such wondrous design.
A seasonal scene
of a white fluffy way
is a stage set to be
a bright winters day.
The snow is gleaming
as a beacon of light
while winter becomes
such a magical sight.
The trees all covered
with snow that falls
a moment in time
that my life recalls.
This is the season
a cold snowy view
as winter becomes
as blessings so true.
Seen as a painting
God’s Hands bestow
as winter becomes
some fluffy white snow.

Haiku
for May 4,  2017

Time is but a flight
of seconds being counted
to become a day.

Beyond what we see
are shadows of the living
that exist as life.

Our varieties
are as associations
of which that we choose.

A pear is a pear
but it’s shape is deciphered
that of a woman.

Life to the fullest
is only our perception,
as we view our lives.

A flower beckons
for a bubble bee’s lifestyle
to conjoin with it.

Some days are stormy
while others are bright sunshine
that evens the mix.

Sadness is the fuel
for happiness and desire,
for it gives us want.

Trees that are leaning
may have been within a storm
with branches weighed down.

Someone’s conclusion
might be nothing but guessing,
for answers elude.

Driving through springtime
you might see lifetimes blossom
that was once in snow.

Deep within minutes
holds seconds to be counted
to become your life.

The past is the past
and we carry the baggage
that lets the past live.

Belief in something
does not always make it so,
but in God it’s true.

Life is a doorway
that connects many lifestyles
to become much more.

Change is illusion
if it is not done within,
for actions can lie.

Scenes of explosions
might be dynamite of life
that was not dealt with.

Feeling for a pulse
will only show a heartbeat
and not ones true self.

Looking up skyward
some clouds might drift in your view
and become blessings.

A small blade of grass
can become someone’s front yard
as it reaches out.

Highlights of our lives
might change as we grow older
looking at the past.

Jumping too quickly
might land you in a puddle
that shows your mistakes.
