While We Can

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a fairly nice passed week up here
in Maine.  The weather’s not been too bad.
Well about the eclipse.  We saw nothing at
all.  All we saw was the sun as we always do.
Through a hazy sky.  I’m guessing that we
are too far north to have seen the eclipse 🙂
Oh well,  Judy and I took a lot of pictures
of the sun LOL.  We also made a field trip
out of it.  Benny and Rocky were game for
it as they made a mad dash for the field as
happy as can be.  We took a few pictures of
us and the boys.  Anyways,  the sky never
changed.  It was just another day.  So what
else has gone on up here?  Well,  Tuesday,
our neighbors kids were playing in their
swimming pool.  I caught a glimpse of them
fishing in the pool using a toy rod and reel
and I took a few pictures of them.  LOL
they watched me as I took pictures.  Judy
and I went to town that day as well being
that Judy had to go for a blood test and
we needed a few groceries from Walmart.
The next day (Wednesday) we took the boys
out for another field trip.  I even got a few
selfies of Judy and I.  It was a beautiful day.
Thursday,  Judy and I just stayed indoors
and did some writing and painting.  The
next day (Friday) our grandson Christian
came to spend the weekend with us.  He’s
here right now,  but his mom will be by
sometime this evening to pick him up 🙁
We love having him here.  He’s 15 and I’m
sure that as he grows older,  he won’t want
to spend as much time with us.  So,  we’re
enjoying him while we can.  It’s supposed
to be a high of 69 F today with clear skies.
Right now at 4:15 PM it’s 69 F.  Tonight’s
low is supposed to be 42 F.  We’ve been
keeping tabs on Hurricane Harvey or as it
is now Tropical storm Harvey.  We have
yet to of seen any new footage of one of
our favorite spots in Texas (Port Aransas).
I hope and pray to God that it is not too
bad,  but I fear that it is just as Rockport
and many other places got hit as well as
the rain that is causing flooding in many
surrounding areas such as Victoria and
Houston.  We are praying for everyone.
God,  we ask You to provide angels to
help to ease all of the turmoil and bring
ones peace.  So,  back to my rambling
about Pearce’s Place.  Yesterday I took
a few selfies of Judy,  Christian and me :).
I always like to take a few pictures for
memories.  So,  I guess that’s all that I
can think of at the moment to tell you.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin
my search back through all that I have
written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem.  So
it’s away I go,  to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title just about halfway back in
my rambling and now after checking I
see that it has not been used yet,  so it’s
away we go hehehe…

While We Can

Before it’s passed
a time should be
enjoyed with life
the things you see.
The moments move
and leave a place
a time remembered
of someone’s face.
While we can
we need to enjoy
the sights and sounds
that times deploy.
The time will pass
and all we know
will one day be
a scenes shadow.
Look for the good
in here and now
and let it to live
some way somehow.
Seek for the blessings
in life’s shifting sand,
we need to do it
when we can.

There ya go.  I hope you enjoyed the poem
and maybe even understood it LOL.  Also
I hope you enjoyed my rambling.  It seems
my mind is locked on all of my friends and
family in Texas right now.  All I can do is
pray that they are OK.  I have many friends
in Corpus Christi and the surrounding areas
such as Port Aransas etc.  Judy has been on
her computer trying to find pictures or info
on the damage of Port Aransas,  but it seems
that it is still blocked off.  Anyways,  back to
the journal.  We haven’t had much excitement
up here.  Our landlord is still dilly-dallying as
the addition gets verrrrrry slowwwwly done.
It better be done before winter or I might end
up losing my cool.  No pun intended.  Anyways
that’s about all that’s going on around here 🙂
So now I think 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 none extra this week 🙂
and one Christmas poem among them and
yes I once again wrote 22 haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like 🙂
Now I believe it’s time for me to be searching
for that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a truly blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now,  where can that off switch be
hiding at this week?  Hmmmm,  searching.
There ya are ya ornery whippersnapper LOL.
Hiding behind my nose drops again are ya!
Well,  that once again is not the best place
to hide being I have 24 7 allergies hehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Life’s Decisions

A scene, a dream,
a wanted array,
becomes a time
in our display.
Decisive minds
of turbulent life
often have troubles
as blades of a knife.
Our life’s decisions
are pages to turn,
books of emotions,
times to discern.
A butterfly’s flight
might seem to be
a troublesome sight
of which you can see.
Yet Life’s decisions
are chosen in time,
scenes we’re allowing
to live in our mind.

Eden’s Flower

As life began
it brought to see
a flower of life
for you and me.
As moments grew
the time beheld
Eden’s flower
a story to tell.
The stage was set
for newest dawn
as man then learned
of right and wrong.
An apple was picked
and change began
the day and life
of woman and man.
God gave the beauty
of life thereof
as Eden’s flower
was filled with love.
Then was the time
that wonderful hour
to begin the phase
with Eden’s flower.

Reflecting Back

Thinking of a time
of a photograph,
a picture taken
of the distant past.
A purple flower,
an essence of spring,
reflecting back
in a mere daydream.
The minutes passed
and now are gone,
but in a photo
they still live on.
As a mere journey,
a heartbeat’s array,
reflecting back
has so much to say.
A story of life
and all that’s passed
becomes a flower
a shadowy cast.
That purple flower
still lives with me,
reflecting back
in my memory.

Fence Of Time

Planks nailed to
as walls of time
might create
a bad design.
A separator
to just divide
a persons view
of the other side.
A fence of time
is not the way
to bring us peace
another day.
We all have
our different views
of which we live
of false and trues.
We’re a family
with different lives
so let’s not kill with
guns and knives.
Lose the anger
and prejudice,
hug one another,
don’t hit with fist.
Yes we’re different
both you and I
but that’s no reason
to make ones die.
We all need to
surely find
a common bond
less fence of time.

Rocks Of Life

Troubles come
and troubles go
rocks of life
that times bestow.
Seasons withered
worn out shoes
rocks of life
our daily views.
Seen as gravel
losing grasp
rocks of life
are such a task.
Yet a flower
or blade of grass
rocks of life
might let to pass.
Then the troubles
might display
rocks of life
a learning way.
Making stronger
through the strife
lessons come from
rocks of life.

Dark Desert Highway

The roads traveled
within our minds
might be the darkest
with fearful designs.
A dark desert highway
that travels with fear
might be imagined
from life not too clear.
Times you’ve envisioned
with a scary display
might be your minds
dark desert highway.
Look for the brighter
outcomes that can be
and don’t let darkness
to be all you see.
A dark desert highway
of life to and fro
might just be your mind
on an imaginary road.

Thinking Of Snow

Found as a dreamworld
times that bestow
seasons of grandeur
is thinking of snow.
Life is as Christmas
with a season’s delight
as time is portioned
from day unto night.
Found just like Heaven
in a seasonal time
thinking of snow is
oh so divine.
As a page from a book
of wintertime’s ways
I’m often dreaming
of Christmassy days.
Thinking of snowflakes
then falling with grace
life is a blessing
that lands on my face.
Time as a portion
that icicles glow
and I find I’m often
thinking of snow.

Dreamy View

In life comes times
that once were dreams
as times sublime
of magical scenes.
Maybe imagined
moments displayed
a dreamy view
with waters to wade.
A scene a dream
of a daily vessel
sailing through life
of a watery nestle.
Ripples are found
to keep it afloat
this dreamy view
of a sailing boat.
A lonely ship
through lowly waves
begins its quest
to future days.
Found as a journey
within waters blue
amidst of a memory
dreamy view.

Autumn Tracks

Times of colors
red and gold
are as autumn
does unfold.
Seasons display
comes in view
colored brightly
thereunto.
Autumn tracks
as rails of roads
give the ways
for heavy loads.
Trains of life
are you and I
driven time of
where and why.
Like the colors
time reacts
you and I on
autumn tracks.

We Are Flowers

We are the seasons
as flowers grow
times emotions
lifetimes bestow.
We are flowers
blooming each day
colors as blossoms
in our own way.
The petals speak
with words of time
some as a sentence
that seems as a rhyme.
We are flowers
growing with life
often with pages
turning with strife.
Just as a book
a written display
we are flowers
of day after day.

Haiku
for Aug 25,  2017

Looking at the sun
only shows you have no sense
and will end up blind.

Trial by fire
is often found of flowers
that weather winter.

A storm passing by
might have a story to tell
in its clouds above.

Scenes that pass us by
come to life within photos
that we have taken.

Time is a moment
that many count when worried,
that evades when safe.

Complexity kills
when our likenesses aren’t seen
and we pick and choose.

Life is a folly
filled with many points of pain
that people laugh at.

Decisions we make
construct the values we have
showing who we are.

Searching through problems
you might come out with answers
that might not seem right.

The price of our lives
is seen by many people
as a passing breeze.

Not allowing truth
does not mean it will not be,
as ones lies will fail.

Weathering seconds
could make minutes as hours
that drive us crazy.

Looking passed a time
does not mean that it’s not there,
for it still exists.

Flavors of water
are determined by the need
and the lack thereof.

Scented aromas
of an early morning dew
bring forth the living.

Change is perception
as we look at night and day
to see what that’s right.

Found in a heartbeat
is a lifetimes arrival
to do what it will.

Being rich with life
will fulfill you so much more
than having money.

Time is a doorway
that swings like a pendulum
as a clock of life.

Beyond the blue sky
there is a new existence
that we’ve yet to see.

Pathways through choices
bring bad and good to the light
showing the results.

Our purpose in life
is an invisible road
that God will expose.

The Factor

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope life is treating you well.  It’s been
a bit of a lax world around here.  There’s
not been much happening that I can think
of that’s worth talking about.  Judy had a
appointment in Presque Isle Wednesday to
have cortisone shots in her knees.  We then
stopped off and KFC/Taco Bell and got us
some dinner for later that night.  I of course
took pictures there and to as I always do 🙂
While Judy was in the doctors office I went
around looking for things to take pictures
of LOL.  I walked down to the little pond
and as usual there were a ton of ducks and
also a two people sitting on the bench just
enjoying the sights.  I said smile and they
let me take their picture 🙂  I took pictures
of ducks,  flowers and anything else I could
see that looked photo worthy hehehe.  Yep
a typical day for me.  I haven’t taken many
pictures since that day.  Though Monday
of last week our neighbors had a bonfire
that lit up the night.  I took some pictures
of that LOL.  Judy had craft night over
at her sister’s house last night.  She made
a wind chime using CD’s and other things.
She’s quite creative.  I’m still writing my
poetry pictures.  So far I’ve written 110 for
volume 5 of Pearce’s Poetry Pictures.  50
more to go along with picking out the cover
picture that I want to use as well as the last
page to put the about me section in and then
convert them all to PDF.  Yes I know that
might sound like mumbo jumbo to you 🙂
No matter,  I’ll get it published some time
next month if all goes well.  So other than
that,  not much else is going on around
the Pearce’s Place.  God is still watching
over us,  guiding and protecting us.  The
summer days have not been too awful bad
up here thank God.  There’s many things
that we need to thank God for.  Helping
Judy and I to find one another and these
boys that keep our home bouncing with
love.  Yes we have a few bad times and we
even lose our tempers from time to time,
but that is human.  The factor is to forgive
and maybe not forget, but at least leave it
in the past.  We love one another and God
is the glue that bonds us together.  I say
thank You once again my Lord.  Now to
begin my search back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a word or
phrase that I can use for the title for today’s
brand new poem.  So it’s away I go to that
place of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe I
may have stumbled upon a decent title just
a few lines back and now after checking I
see that I have not used it as of yet,  and
so it’s “Away we go”  LOL a little Jackie
Gleason there.  Here goes…

The Factor

Timeless treasures
now and then
are the factor
lose or win.
Sometimes losing
is better to do
when all you have
is a dismal view.
Time’s a factor
that represents
many thresholds
ones intents.
Make the factor
the best you can be
by changing daily
the views you see.
Often it’s us
our eyesight alone
that views the factor
we’ve always known.
Let God’s angels
to help you view
the factor of love
in all you do.

Well,  there ya go.  Another of my efforts to
make sense hehehe.  I hope it at least made
sense to you hehehe a little.  If it didn’t then
Oh Well LOL.  Life goes on.  I also hope you
found a little peace in my rambling.  Hehehe if
not,  then it at least gave ya something to do
for a little while 🙂  So as I said earlier,  there’s
not much to talk about.  It’s been a peaceful
week for the passed few days.  With that said
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 poems
with 5 extra this week with 2 Christmas poems.
Also,  I 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 🙂
I believe it’s time for me to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a most wonderful weekend or what-
ever is left of it and a truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now to begin my search for ye ole off switch 🙂
Hmm,  where oh where can that off switch be?
LOL It looks like I see a little movement from
behind my infrared camera.  Yep,  there ya are.
That camera is one of my smaller cameras LOL.
Why didn’t you pick one of the bigger ones?
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Combined Together

We are life
our different styles
combined together
time compiles.
Views displayed
should not be skin,
but blood of life
found deep within.
We are the colors
an autumn design
found together
seasons combined.
Life is artwork
a blessing to be
combined together
for hearts to see.
See the true beauty
in times endeavor
found in us all
combined together.

Christmas Phase

August sunshine
makes me view
snowy dreams
of winter’s hue.
In the window
time displays
hopes and dreams
of Christmas phase.
Seeing snowflakes
that decorate
winter’s style
and things to make.
Rivers flowing
seem to cease
snow upon them
giving peace.
Then some treetops
will unfold
Christmas phase
to then behold.

Through The Snow

Winter’s pathways
fair and white
display then
a wondrous sight.
A time of season
oh so cold
seen in essence
times of old.
Through the snow
there is a scene
a time and place
now in between.
Summers now just
holding fast
to its ways
just like the past.
Yet the snowy
life I know
is the best when
through the snow.
Daylight glimmers
through the clouds
seen by winter
as love shrouds,
but while summer
holds its place
autumn’s coming
soon to face.
Then comes winter
with its show
footprints gleaming
through the snow.

Fishing For Peace

Sometimes fishing
can procure
good and bad
without a lure.
Peaceful scenes
that time displays
may of been with
waiting days.
Fishing for peace
as time moves on
needs some patience
dusk to dawn.
Not letting hurry
to interfere
and be all that you
see and hear.
Let life’s waters
find relief
with prayer lures
fishing for peace.

Heavenly Light

Sometimes seconds
will seem to be
the best of a time
for eyes to see.
A heavenly light
seen up above
can look just like
a snow-white dove.
As with a season
of heavenly light
time can become
a feeling just right.
Found as a window
a time to view
the heavenly light
will shine on though.
Often as snowflakes
that winters inlay
the heavenly light
is brighter each day.

Thoughts As Wind

Birds in flight
a day of peace,
might inlay
a time’s release.
Scenes of beauty
with windy ways
can become
some better days.
Found emotions
with do or die,
thoughts as wind
begin to fly.
Find the essence
within your view,
set them free
in a sky of blue.
Don’t let others
hold you down,
thoughts as wind
can fly around.
Seeking beauty
in each design
might be better
in winds of time.
Allowing moments
as they will,
raindrops on
a windowsill.
Seeking surely
beginning to end,
some better days
thoughts as wind.

Time Is Faint

From a distance
things we view,
might just have
a different hue.
Faint perception
scenes we see,
could become
our history.
Time is faint
as years go by,
bringing questions
how and why.
That is when we
should look true,
finding shadows
there and to.
Learning lessons
times constraint,
within moments
time is faint.

View Of Life

Those days of old
that find a way
to live and breathe
in now today
are often scenes
our lives recall
a view of life
from spring to fall.
The scented days
of now and then
will come right back
to begin again.
With memories
of a wondrous way
a time of life
another day.
A field of flowers
brings to view
a summer’s day
a life anew.
A view of life
that moments show
becomes a time
that comes aglow.

Journeys Of Mind

Seasons of moments
bring forth a time
often like clockwork
found in the mind.
Sometimes illusions
are all that we see
when we take journeys
on through history.
Journeys of mind
are seasons request
maybe through trees
of a seasonal zest.
A pathway is trodden
with time on and on
as life is depicting
the things that are gone.
Look for the blessings
of artwork divine
found as remembered
journeys of mind.

Smiles Of Life

Often sadness
will inlay
the future form
of day to day.
Smiles of life
can cure a frown
when you’re feeling
a little down.
Often seasons
will bring change
life and times
a little strange.
A moments frown
might become
your day to day
each beating drum.
Let the moment
lose its strife
as you find
the smiles of life.

Night’s Persuasion

As moonlight shines
it opens a door
to dreams of stories
and so much more.
Maybe a castle
in moonlight gaze
lit up in the night
with candles ablaze.
Life in a dreamworld
can become anything
as sight of the moon
or a loon that sings.
Night’s persuasion
is a glimpse to see
as waters ripple
oh so silently.
Time is a blessing
a moment’s occasion
found in a dreamworld
a night’s persuasion.

Like A River

Time’s a flavor
that eye’s perceive
found as portions
ones misconceive.
Like a river
moments will flow
displaying ripples
where all we go.
Within the scenes
there might begin
the flow of rivers
of where and when.
The destinations
might have pain
upon some rocks
to then attain,
but the rocks
will strengthen you
as time goes on
the river view.
Life’s a pebble
that rivers play
timeless scenes
of day after day.
An actor’s stage
that waters flow
is as our lives
that times bestow.
The path is made
as a lesson giver
given from God
just like a river.

Alone In A Crowd

Like but a glance
in a looking glass
many only see
their time to pass.
Alone in a crowd
so many stand
looking around
for an empty hand.
Seeking for others
to grab on to,
alone in a crowd
is all they view.
A wild strawberry
is all many see,
a sight unto time
of you and of me.
Hidden from view
ones might be near,
people just waiting
for you to see clear.
Your vision might be
as a passing time,
alone in a crowd
within your mind.

Season’s Revival

Echoes of heartbeats
begin with the snow
season’s revival
how blessings bestow.
Christmassy scenes
come alive in the view
as that of stories
of lifetimes come true.
Season’s revival
is a time wish to see
essence of Christmas
as a tall snowy tree.
Life is as artwork
relived in the mind,
season’s revival
of a magical time.
Stories of Christmas
so many tell true
as season’s revival
that wonderful view.

Magical Times

Life is a feeling
that many don’t feel,
those magical settings
that moments conceal.
So many people
will only see pain
and not see the joy
that moments attain.
Yes there is sadness
and yes there is strife,
but it shouldn’t be
all you see in your life.
Look for the goodness
that clouds might release
and find a rainbow
that’s filled full of peace.
The seasons of heartbeats
can form great designs
to be in remembrance,
those magical times.

Haiku
for Aug 19,  2017

Timeless survival
comes in form of a blessing
ones misunderstand.

Finding direction
can become aggravating
when all by yourself.

A passing storm cloud
might have a little rainbow
to share with the sky.

The sounds of heartbeats
can become rhythms to see
as time runs its course.

Tomorrows blessings
might be hidden in today
awaiting their time.

Looking for the truth
you might find it in a lie
that someone can’t hide.

Picturing doorways
often leads to conclusions
that might not be right.

A flower is life
that displays its emotions
as it’s blossoming.

Someone’s umbrella
might unveil what fears them most
as often it’s used.

Believing in things
does not always require sight,
for air you can’t see.

See passed your failures
and find what all you have learned,
then use the lessons.

Truth is a doorway
that opens wide with wisdom
to open new doors.

The petals of life
are as a rose found in bloom,
they will come and go.

Searching through rain clouds
might show proof of some lightning
hidden in the grey.

Beyond what we see
might be a whole other view
that might change our minds.

Living on the edge
often creates dilemmas
that we can’t handle.

Simple blades of grass
have a tremendous story
that involves some weeds.

Stopping for a breath
might be the thing that saves you
from meeting demise.

Sunflowers of days
become special sights to see
within the sunlight.

Many molecules
are so small we can’t see them
without microscopes.

Dreams of a sunrise
can become a reality
if you don’t sleep late.

Without our eyesight
we might hear a faint moment
that we focused on.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Maybe Not

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

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

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

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

Another Way

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

Two Ducks

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

Upon The Tracks

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

Heart That Glows
(Happy Birthday Sami)

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

Tons of love
from Grandma and Grandpa

A Little Light

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

Castle Of Love

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

Like A Flower

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

Drop By Drop

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

Three Crows

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

Like A Wave

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

Edge Of The Pier

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

At The Dock

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

Time Of Peace

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

Haiku
for Aug 12,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Here And There

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

Aug 6,  2017

There ya go.  That’s a little view inside of
my mind hehehe.  I never know what will
come out of my head LOL.  I just let the
thoughts come out as they will.  I will often
amaze myself as I look back on all that I
have written.  Over 11 thousand poems 🙂
It’s 63 F degrees now at 6:30 PM.  The low
for tonight or actually for early tomorrow
morning is supposed to be 47 F.  Not too
bad 🙂  There’s not much else to tell you
other than what I tell you almost every
week 🙂 and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems with 4 extras from my busy mind.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like.  So now I guess it’s time for me to
begin my search for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you
a wonderful weekend or whatever’s left
of it and a truly blessings filled week 🙂
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Ok,  so now,  where’s that ornery
off switch hiding this time hehehehehe?
Well,  you’re getting better.  But still,
do you always need to poke your head
up every 2 seconds to see if I can see
you LOL?  No,  I think not.  Why not
try this next week,  just staying put
and letting me find you LOL.  Yes I’m
aware that if you did that I would more
than likely never finish my journal,  but
at least stay still for a few minutes LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

To Turn Back Time

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

The Bench Of Time

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

Journey Of the Mind

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

On The Shore

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

Tiny River

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

A Little Walk

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

As Time Begins

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

A Moment Comes Alive

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

Autumn Bridge

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

Heaven Is A Place

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

A Time Reminds

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

Passing Thoughts

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

Bridge Of Dreams

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

Season’s Request

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

Haiku
for Aug 5,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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