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

P.S  A link to our brand new books

A Winter Mind

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

Time Passes On

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

Lost Perspective

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

Reflection

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

Lupine Dreams

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

Complacent River

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

Just Like Gold

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

Enchanted Skies

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

Black Eyed Susan

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

Christmas Trail

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

Purple Flower

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

A Simple Smile

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

Within The Waves

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

Life As Bubbles

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

A Cookout

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

Pond Of Dreams

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

Haiku
for July 1,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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