ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another nice week that has passed
as the grass and weeds have begun growing.
This week I reckon I’ll be giving our brand
new lawnmower a little test drive or push as
it is a push mower LOL.  It’s an ION 40 volt
battery powered lawnmower from Sunjoe/
Snowjoe.  We got it from the same place we
got our snow blower and battery powered
snow shovel.  The snow blower and snow
shovel work great and they use they use the
same battery as the lawnmower.  We have
2 batteries and chargers so we’re all set to
mow LOL.  It might be a slight pain,  being
the lawnmower has but only a bag in the
back of it that will need emptied each time
it gets full,  but aside from that,  I think
it will work well.  Anyways,  next topic 🙂
LOL that last bit sounded almost like a
advertisement didn’t it Hahahahahahaha.
Sorry,  that’s just the way it came out.
So,  what else has gone on around this
place in the passed week?  Hmm,  good
question.  Other than us playing taxi cab
for our grandson hehehe,  not much has
gone on.  He has bought a car,  but it is
needing some work and right now it is
in the shop to soon be driveable.  We
don’t mind helping out 🙂  I have good
memories of my grandparents being
there for me.  So,  what else has gone
on around The Pearce’s Place?  Well
last Tuesday Judy and I went to town
and got us some ice cream at the old
Houlton Farms Dairy.  It’s a little place
that opens up each year after winter
has passed that’s a little ice cream stand.
It closes up when winter comes knocking.
Mostly school kids run it,  but adults
run it when the kids are in school.  We
love to go there,  but we only go there
maybe 2 or 3 times a year as a treat.
It’s rained off and on through out the
week and that has been a welcome
sight.  Yep,  it’s been rather slow around
this place.  I’ve been busy writing more
poems and putting them into pictures as
well as fixing typo’s in ones I had done
previously.  Judy had craft night last
night/Saturday night and she made a
cute little gnome to hang up in the
house.  We’re getting ready to start
watching American Ninja Warriors
that should be coming on Tuesday or
Wednesday.  We’ll have to check to
make sure what day so we don’t miss
it.  That’s about as close to sports as
I ever get LOL.  I’m not a sports fan.
We also love to watch Deadliest Catch
and Ice Road Truckers along with a
few of our haunted shows and ghost
hunting shows hehehe.  What can I
say,  we’re hooked on that stuff 🙂
We also watch a lot of game shows
together when of course I’m not busy
writing or she’s not busy with one of
her projects hehehe.  Not much else
to tell you.  God is still looking out
for us.  We can feel His presence as
He watches over us.  We also sense
many angels watching over us as we
continue our striving force forwards
in life.  Now I believe it is time for
me to begin my little journey back
through all that I’ve written here to
see if I can find a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s
brand new poem 🙂 Tra lala lala LOL
So it’s away I go to that little place
of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  Hmm,
I think I may have found a decent title
about halfway back in my rambling
and now after checking I see that it
has not been used as of yet,  so used
it shall be.  Here goes…

Into Pictures

Moments saved
as memories
might become as
raging seas.
Into pictures
life might phase
changing then
to dismal days.
Don’t let photos
change your stride
look for blessings
deep inside.
Into pictures
can help some
to clear your view
for times begun.
Allow your views
to see beyond
what was there,
but now is gone.
Find the smiles
within a scene
into pictures
like a dream.

Well there ya go.  LOL I know it’s not
one of my better poems,  but that’s it 🙂
That’s what I got from the title.  I never
know what I will write.  Anyways,  I hope
you liked the poem a little bit and maybe
even understood it hehehe.  I also hope
you enjoyed my rambling which a lot of
it may have seemed like an advertisement.
LOL sorry,  it wasn’t meant to be.  So
now it’s time to get serious.  A friend of
mine called me yesterday and asked me
to put her friends John and Linda on my
prayer request.  John is a truck driver
and he had a bad accident the other day
which landed him in the ER in very bad
shape.  So please say a prayer for them.
So I reckon it’s time for me to be telling
you what I tell you every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems with 1 extra and
1 Christmas poem in the mix.  Also I
wrote 22 more haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find 1
or 2 of either or both that you like 🙂
Ok,  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 very happy Memorial day and Sunday.
Also I wish for you a blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Now where can that ornery switch
be hiding this time??????  I see ya you
little varmint,  hiding behind my glass
of orange juice LOL.  For heavens sake,
why don’t you try just for once,  not
peeking around 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

Into The Air

In waters blue
a sea plane finds
a strength to be
up in the skies.
It goes through
the waters ways
to fly up high
in skies of waves.
Into the air
it finds release
a time and place
of scenic peace.
It will return
to fly again
into the air
just as the wind.
Wings of life
to hold it fast
within a time
of shadows cast.
It brings a view
into my eyes
while it flies
into the skies.
Leaving time
within its place
with my eyes
and smiling face.
I watched it fly
in awesome flair
its flight of life
into the air.

Port A Days

The ocean’s waves
are near to see
in Port A days
found heavenly.
The scent becomes
a wondrous phase
even amidst
a sky of gray.
With but a scene
of a seagulls flight
the days begin
as a magical sight.
A bonfire burning
creating a view
of Port A days
near waters blue.
The crashing sound
of oceans waves
becomes the best
of Port A days.

Ocean Dreams

Enhanced by dreams
of times beyond
you might find waves
the crack of dawn.
While you’re sleeping
you might see
a dream of oceans
and mind set free.
The crashing sounds
can envelop you
as but a moment
in a sea of blue.
Enhanced some more
the dream lets loose
a timeless gaze
that does seduce.
It becomes a pathway
as waves of light
enhancing dreams
of day and night.
The waves then roar
to life with sound
an ocean scene
of times astound.
You might awaken
to find your gaze
of an ocean dream
but just a phase.
Yet as you reminisce
these wondrous scenes
you find you love
those ocean dreams.

Winters Remembered

Cold winters days
of timeless sorts
are now remembered
as my heart reports.
Remembered moments
with our little car
red in its color,
but greatest by far.
Remembering drives
we used to go on
winters recorded
that now are gone.
My wife would drive
to work every day
and return later
in a wintery way.
I’d often look deep
into scenes thereunto
and search for signs
of her wonderful view.
Driving that red car
down our wintery road
seeking to join me
at our humble abode.
Yet now years later
she’s the same as I
retired from work
in time by and by.
Our old car is gone
for it died long ago
in winters remembered
a time in the snow.

Illusions Of Life

Seeming so timeless
our journey may be
just illusions of life
with dreams reality.
Wishing for a moment
to travel thereupon
the tracks of illusions
while singing our songs.
Singing of a moment
a dream coming true
as illusions of life
that come into view.
They might be pathways
train tracks of time
illusions we’ve formed
inside of our mind.
Yet our perceptions
of a timeless display
might hold within them
a much better day.
A smile that is found
from a moment’s seed
as a time long ago
a web master weaved.
Becoming a time frame
that of Heaven or Hell
which is all determined
in how we set sail.
The tracks can become
as the blade of a knife
cutting through reality
as illusions of life.

Heaven’s Sky

Without our heartbeats
life is just gray
scented with minutes
of day after day.
We need to each find
a place deep inside
filled full of passion
of a heavenly sky.
Look for the blessings
from deep within
that live as a moment
our time did begin.
Look beyond hateful
and look beyond greed
and see all the things
we’ve got that we need.
For seen as a dewdrop
a morning can become
a much brighter day
up under the sun.
Below the heaven’s sky
our shadows are cast
scenes as we make them
sometimes too fast.
The views that we see
might be a bit gray
as we look beyond now
onto another day.
Seek for happiness
as a kite that will fly
and find the true beauty
amidst heaven’s sky.

Carriage Of Time

By reminiscing
things we’ve found
we might find
a sight or sound.
Maybe an engine
or horses hooves
found within our
daily grooves.
A time we might
one day perceive
can become a
good memory.
Planting moments
in picture frames
wonderful things
that life attains.
God gives beauty
to see and hear
along with aromas
that may appear.
Thinking of times
you heard and saw
a moment in life
so filled with awe.
A carriage pulled
by two strong steed
to help ones get
some food to feed.
So many blessings
a moment can find
when you’re viewing
a carriage of time.

Storms Of Life

Beyond a field
of summer’s style
storms may form
to steal your smile.
Don’t let moments
to steal away
your dreams of life
and make them gray.
Seek for blessings
within the clouds
as timeless scenes
that life endows.
Look on beyond
the now and then
and seek for smiles
to then begin.
Storms of life
we sometimes find
are but only
within our mind.
Yet our viewpoint
might display
only the dismal
of a certain way.
Don’t allow times
to become manure
that might just need
some time to cure.
For surely spirits
can ease your strife
making rainbows
in storms of life.

Persuasion Of Time

Some days of rain
can become of a sight
as a scene we imagine
from day unto night.
Found as persuasion
a moment’s display
can become a story
with so much to say.
Written as a journal
that comes into view
moment’s persuasion
saying how do you do.
A blessing from God
that begins its quest
showing the stages
of Heaven at best.
Clouds in formation
as a magical hue
seen within the skies
along with some blue.
As a page of life
that is written to be
a persuasion of time
to give much to see.
Some will only view
the clouds of gray
and derive that of life
as a horrible day,
but I see the clouds
as a Godly design
that so many view as
a persuasion of time.

Winter’s Glow

Inside a thought
might live a view
a time so sweet
we wish anew.
It might be scenes
that we remember
Christmas sights
amidst December.
That winter’s glow
in snow so white
reflected scenes
of day’s sunlight.
We might discern
a certain scene
Christmas songs
you’d surely sing.
The radio blasting
songs so sweet
with winter’s glow
as such a treat.
Songs of Santa
and Jesus too
become as echoes
in thereunto.
As the moments
fly right by
you remember
a winter’s sky.
The sight of time
with fluffy snow
and sun that shines
of winter’s glow.

Spring Awaits

Snowy hills
might show a view
of winter’s white
and sky of blue.
Seasons change
as times unite
spring awaits
in winter’s white.
Within a photo
it might seem
that time has lost
the sight of spring.
Snowy hills
might seem to say
they don’t want
a springtime day.
But yet the time
is there to see
as spring awaits
to come to be.
It shows signs
of melting snow
and some plants
that start to grow.
As days pass by
and time moves on
the seasons grasp
where they belong.
Then as winters
snow deflates
the seasons show
that spring awaits.

Haiku
for May 26,  2018

Lost on a journey
you might find your directions
by turning around.

Leave’s that are falling
might seem like helicopters
floating to the ground.

Amidst a storm cloud
you may see a clearing sky
with views of Heaven.

Lingering heartbeats
become echoes of the past
that you remember.

We torment ourselves
with uncontrolled emotions
that we’ve set afire.

Today’s shortcomings
are often begun at dawn
as time slips away.

Without our shadows
we may wonder where we’ve been
and do it again.

Patience is slow
when our wantings are with speed
that life cannot do.

Seeking a dewdrop
when there’s no dewdrop to fall
leaves ones in wanting.

Belief in a ghost
can bring alive peacefulness
found in acceptance.

Time frames will waver
as life turns into drama
about little things.

We each are shadows
of the past that’s gone before
that can change today.

Life of desire
is that of a burning flame
that can be snuffed out.

Painting a picture
you need a canvas and paint
and then emotions.

Beyond the starlight
there might be ones looking back
filled full of wonder.

Existence is time
as a clock shows its essence
to count out heartbeats.

Morning brings doorways
we can either acknowledge
or walk right on by.

The flames of passion
can become as explosions
to create or not.

Pathways we’ve wandered
are taken with us daily
as our memories.

A roses blossom
becomes a bees way of life
providing nectar.

Threesomes of life
often have one that’s alone
that no one knows of.

Change is a path
that can go one way in time
or yet another.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I’ve been on the healing path here lately.  My
bruised up face from my fall is slowly showing
less signs of the fall.  Also I went to the doctor
Friday and she renewed my prescription for my
Advair and my Ventolin inhaler.  It seems that
me not having those is why I lost my voice.  I
was coughing so much and could not breathe
very well.  My doctor that I had before quit
and she canceled my prescription which left me
without it for a few months 🙂  So,  now I can
talk and sing again.  Not much else is going on.
Springtime has finally taken a firm grasp and
the dandelions are growing all over the place.
It looks like I will be giving our brand new
lawnmower and tryout real soon 🙂  Actually
I’m excited about that LOL.  Like the first
time I used our snow blower hehehe.  Yeppers
it doesn’t take much to entertain me hehehe.
I’ve been doing quite a bit of writing which
I’m guessing comes to no surprise to you 🙂
Right now it’s 63 F degrees at 2 PM.  Not too
bad for springtime 🙂  The high for today is
supposed to be 66,  but we shall see.  The
rest of the week is supposed to be more or
near the same.  Nights are in the 30’s and
40’s.  I can handle that.  Yep it’s better than
that old Texas heat that I grew up with 🙂
Although I do miss going swimming at the
apartments where we used to live.  There’s
a downfall to anything if you think about
it LOL.  Today is a bit cloudy,  but I like
it.  The clouds give the sky a personality 🙂
Judy has still been playing taxi for Chance
(our oldest grandson) and his girl friend,
but hopefully they will soon get another
car.  Theirs died and it cost too much to
fix it.  Oh well,  we don’t mind helping out.
But it would be nice to be able to sleep in
like we used to LOL.  There’s not much
else going on around The Pearce’s Place.
Judy and I haven’t many plans for today
other than what she just got a call to do,
which is take Chance up to his mothers
house in Caribou this evening.  He’s got
a job in Caribou this week for a roofing
company and he’ll ride to work with his
dad.  Both Benny and Rocky are asleep
in their doggy beds in the floor between
Judy and I right now.  LOL I just took
a few pictures of them and they opened
their eyes for the pictures.  We love our
boys.  They keep us entertained.  In the
next few days we’ll begin our walks in the
field with them.  They love to go on field
trips LOL.  Especially with us 🙂  When
the snow in winter gets too deep,  I am
unable to take them for field trips,  but
they seem to still wanna go hehehe.  Yep,
our dogs love to go for walks with us 🙂
They are definitely a blessing.  I hope my
daughter Jamye and granddaughter Sami
will be able to come up again soon.  I’d
love to see them.  They ran into a little
winter weather trouble when they were
headed home December of 2015. She
said she’s not gonna come up during the
winter again LOL.  Anyways,  life is as
it is,  and we are still kicking.  God is
still watching over us,  even when there
are times it might not seem like it.  He
has a way of allowing what’s needed to
strengthen us for future days.  So with
that said,  I reckon it’s time for me to
begin my little journey back through all
that I’ve written here to see if I can find
a good word or phrase that I can use for
the title for today’s brand new poem 🙂
And so it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title just  few lines back and
now after checking I see that it has not
been used yet,  so used it shall be LOL.
Here goes…

Definitely A Blessing

Those times we remember
those times we recall
that we stumbled on lifetimes
which caused us to fall.
They turned into lessons
becoming times to be
definitely a blessing
to help us to see.
For if we had not stumbled
and we had not fell
we might not see so clearly
the way away from Hell.
We’ve each found crossroads
to hither and thither to
which became as a journey
to determine a new view.
So don’t regret the lessons
that you learned time again
for they’re definitely a blessing
to help you again begin.

There ya go LOL.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even understood it.  Also
I hope my rambling kept you entertained 🙂
Judy just left out to go and pick up Danica,
(Chances girlfriend) from work and then go
to take Chance to Caribou.  Judy is going to
stop and KFC/Tacobell and get us dinner so
we don’t have to cook this evening.  Benny
and Rocky stayed home with me 🙂  Though
both of them are in the kitchen at the gate
watching the front door expecting Judy to
come walking through any minute hehehe.
LOL they’ve got quite a wait,  unless Judy
comes back and decides for me to go with
her to take Chance to Caribou,  but even
then,  in that case they would have to stay
home in their crates.  No room in the car
for us all 🙂  Though I gave Judy five dollars
to add with hers to pay for the food,  so she
might just go without me.  You never know.
I’m gonna try and get this finished just in
case,  so I guess it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you every week and that is,  I
wrote some poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10
more poems with 1 extra,  with 1 Christmas
poem in the mix.  Also,  I wrote once again
22 more haiku for all the haiku lovers out
there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either
or both that you like.  Now I believe it is
time for me to begin my search for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a most wonderful weekend or
whatever’s left of it and a truly blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  OK,  so where are you
trying to hide this time????  Hmmmmm,
searching all of your passed hiding spots.
I don’t see,,,,,,,, Wait a minute,  I don’t
recall my camera having a rocking motion
to it LOL.  Yes I know,  it’s not sitting
level,  but you could’ve just not leaned up
against it hehehe.  Better luck next week.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Thoughts Exposed

Meaningless chatter
from a moment’s time
might just expose
what others will find.
Maybe a hillside
or maybe just a sight
exposed as illusions
we find in daylight.
There might be snow
on a hillside we gaze
dotted with landscape
of a wintery phase.
Our thoughts exposed
might become a scene
found on the hillside
as a fantastic dream.
Time becomes counted
as minutes pass by
exposed as a journey
with us asking why.
Limits on our thinking
are ours to perceive
our thoughts exposed
as the way we believe.
Yet as a doorway
our mind might confide
to all that’s exposed
and all that’s inside.
We must keep moving
with hearts enclosed
even when at times
with thoughts exposed.

Surveying

Time within time
of a place of peace
my heart found life
of a moment’s release.
It was just like a page
from a story book
that time became alive
what many mistook.
Trees grasping hold
of shadows of time
as they’re surveying
what moments remind.
Scented as a season
that ends with a flair
with patches of snow
as a winter’s affair.
While chasing dreams
of a natures array
I found a portion
of a springtime day.
It was the beginning
of a sight to see
placed there by God
from Him unto me.
I found some peace
as I stood very still
watching life flicker
as a candle on a hill.
It might seem painted
what time was displaying
but it’s just a moment
that I was surveying.

Autumn’s Peace

Life filled with colors
of leaves that shine
become as a picture
recalled of a time.
Autumn of grandeur
scented with hues
colors so brilliantly
become infused.
Life filled with stages
of brown unto gold
become as a story
that autumn has told.
Words of the colors
that unfold desire
bring forth an essence
of autumn’s entire.
Some maybe timid
and some so bright
autumn unleashes
its magical sight.
The same as a story
with words of time
given from Heaven
so wondrous divine.
Life filled with scenes
of colors so grand
as autumn’s pages
are seen where I stand.
This is what I see
when looking at leaves
colors of a moment
as autumn’s peace.

Someone’s Dream

Glistening waters
boats gliding through
becomes as a memoir
that’s written in view.
Words that of ripples
waters that display
a scene within a dream
of one summer’s day.
Someone’s dream
that became as a time
a glistening story
that life did define.
It could be a song
someone sings so true
as glistening waters
that are oh so blue.
A rippling pageant
of an evening’s retreat
could be a moment
within a heartbeat.
Minutes pass quickly
as the waters flow
while two then together
in a boat will row.
Stroking waters gently
as time moves along
while the dream creates
a glistening song.
It’s first as a rhythm
and then as a scene
a song oh so peaceful
within someone’s dream.

Time’s  Perception

Standing still
with earthly tunes
time can be like
holding balloons.
Waiting for minutes
as seconds arrive
time’s perception
is how we survive.
Holding too loosely
our time flies away
like holding balloons
on a real breezy day.
Look to the heavens
and grasp real tight
the beauty of life
that is then in sight.
For time’s perception
is just but a thing
as a girl with balloons
in a painted scene.

Eve Of Fall

Colors of autumn
grow in the air
displaying portions
a moment of flair.
The style is seen
as timeless can be
as the eve of fall
creates history.
An old little cabin
might then exist
as the eve of fall
will turn and twist.
Becoming scenes
that times unveil
as autumns colors
in every detail.
Displayed as peace
created in time
as the eve of fall
is a wonderful find.
It blossoms beyond
each scenic sight
not just by day
but also by night.
The time is alive
with a breath of air
breathed with peace
that none compare.
It’s then of autumn
a time I recall
and seen so alive
as the eve of fall.

Winter’s Eve

The sun becomes
a sight to see
as minutes pass
in front of me.
The sky records
the time and place
as winter’s eve
a skyline face.
Some clouds unite
to bring a view
of winter’s scenes
from white to blue.
Then a change
begins its phase
as sunlight shines
from gold to gray.
It is a moment
so great to see
that came in view
one winter’s eve.

Springtime Weeds

Colors of yellow
in fields of green
the season uncovers
a beautiful scene.
Springtime essence
weeds that become
flowers of beauty
the same as the sun.
Springtime weeds
as dandelions grow
display their life
in fields full of flow.
Becoming flowers
to hide their style
springtime weeds
will surely compile.
Dandelions gather
to become a sight
a scene we discover
within the daylight.
Planted as seedlings
they spread beyond
the sight of evening
to the break of dawn.
The yellow blossoms
into such a way
that seems as Heaven
on a springtime day.
For they soon die out
as summertime seeds
to once again grow as
springtime weeds.

One Summer’s Day

One summer’s day
I found in the air
a scent so delightful
I sought to compare.
I got out our grill
and filled it with coal
then stoked up a fire
to complete my goal.
Then in a moment
I got hamburger meat
and then prepared it
to cook up to eat.
My wife brought buns
to complete the task
and then we sat down
and ate them real fast.
This was delightful
a wonderful way
found as a blessing
on one summer’s day.

As Children Play

On high snow mounds
of white fallen snow
I could hear laughing,
it was beginning to grow.
The season of winter
had brought into view
some children playing
in the snow peekaboo.
Hiding deep in the snow
they’d pop up and smile
tossing some snowballs
that they did compile.
While they were playing
our little dog grinned
watching and waiting
for a time to contend.
He wanted to play then
while I watched them too
on this Christmassy day
of a seasonal view.
It seemed as if magic
the snow falling down
as it piled up quickly
in mounds on the ground.
The kids were laughing
and having some fun
on this magical day
that was second to none.
So as I took pictures
of that wonderful day
I relived Christmastime
as children play.

Seed Of Life

Time is portioned
into some seeds
formed from time
as yellow weeds.
Dandelions grow
to become a sight
a time to bestow
yellow to white.
The seed of life
is oh so amazing
sights of summer
many are gazing.
Fields of yellow
in midst of time
become so white
for life to find.
The seed of life
becomes as air
blown in time
from here to there.
A dandelions life
is that of a style
the seed of life
as times turnstile.

Haiku
for May 19,  2018

Within a moment
holds chances for a lifetime
to be discovered.

When in a nightmare
look for the bright perspectives
to make it a dream.

Searching for the stars
in the midst of a cloud
you might find raindrops.

Stuck in illusions
you might not see the blessings
and end in despair.

Look beyond sadness
and seek for smiles within,
for they do exist.

Love is a healer
as it pours on like sugar
to sweeten our life.

Change is perspective
when looking at an ocean,
for time creates views.

Lust of another
can corrupt you relations
leaving emptiness.

The need of flowers
is that of rain and sunshine
along with good dirt.

Looking through windows
you might see moments wrongly
due to bad timing.

Time’s like a painting
with brushstrokes of living art
creating our lives.

The winds of our lives
often blow as tornadoes,
but prayer can send peace.

Your guiding spirits
might be from another world
and here just for you.

Many aromas
can often hide what they are
until you see them.

Standing in the rain
you might only see struggles
but peace is within.

A frog that jumps out
might land in a lily pond
or in a snakes mouth.

The wonders of life
are hidden in the moments
awaiting our sight.

Morning gives chances
for a new day’s beginning,
so use it wisely.

Leaves within autumn
show their perspective viewpoints
as they are changing.

The length of a day
is often viewed as shadows
that we watch pass by.

Springtime brings changes
that are portions of winter
as time moves along.

Today’s tomorrow
will become our yesterday
that we may have feared.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friend

The weather has been very nice the last
few days aside from a storm that came
through Friday and it knocked out our
computers.  I tried to shut them down
before it all happened,  but I wasn’t fast
enough LOL.  Anyways,  we got them
back up and running.  We’ve been doing
a lot of repairs on the PC’s to fix what
was damaged.  I think they are good to
go now 🙂  So,  what else is going on in
this part of the world?  Well,  Benny is
spending a lot of time outside sitting on
the front steps watching the day go by
and keeping an eye on the neighbors
kids LOL.  Rocky doesn’t like to stay
outside that much.  He prefers to be in
here with us,   but he is always wanting
us to let Benny back in,  but Benny, if
Benny isn’t ready to come back in,  he
will just look at you as if to say,  nope,
I ain’t ready hehehe.  Rocky just a few
moments ago started dancing around
in his either I gotta go potty dance or
his go check on Benny dance LOL.  It’s
hard to distinguish between the two 🙂
They look out for one another.  If you
didn’t know better,  you would swear
that they are brothers.  Of course they
look different,  but the love is family.
LOL Rocky kept pestering us to check
on Benny so Judy put him out on the
steps with him.  We’ll be hearing the
sound of Rocky barking soon to tell
us that he’s ready to come back in :).
Maybe then Benny will be ready to
come back in,  but there is no telling.
Yep,  those boys truly love one another
and for sure they love us as well as
we love them.  So,  what else is going
on around the Pearce’s Place?  Well,
to be honest,  it has been quite slow
around here.  Not much to tell.  I got
my proof copy of my book in the mail
last week,  but I wasn’t happy with the
front page so I redid it and ordered a
second proof to make sure it came out
as I wanted.  Then,  if it is all OK,  I’ll
OK it for publication.  I spend a lot
of time writing,  which does make my
old brain tired,  but I do enjoy writing
and creating the poetry pictures.  We
spend a lot of time watching all of our
favorite TV programs.  I guess we are
what ones would call homebodies LOL.
Though we do from time to time go for
picture taking drives.  Of course I do
take a lot of pictures on our drives to
town or other places.  I use many of
those pictures,  but I have to do a lot
of cropping and straightening being
it’s hard to get a great picture while
riding in the car.  Judy has not figured
out how to dodge all of the frost heaves,
being after winter has done its thing 🙂
they are quite abundant.  It makes for
a rather bumpy ride LOL.  So I have
to do a lot of photo repairs to fix the
pictures that I’m wanting to use for my
poetry hehehe.  That keeps me busy 🙂
Yep,  a lively little home we have here,
NOT Hahaha.  It’s obvious that God
is watching over us.  I bet we’ve got a
few tuckered out angels watching over
us as well 🙂  Right now I can hear our
neighbors riding around in their little
not so little go cart LOL.  Thank You
God for putting Judy and I together
and for these 2 boys that brighten our
days.  Thank You for our families.  My
daughter and granddaughter in Texas
are surely missed as well as my mom
and my sister Peggy.  I have been blessed
with Judy’s family.  I love them dearly.
Thank You God for all that You do.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin
my little search back through all that
I’ve written here to see if I can find me
a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem.
So,  it’s away I go to that 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 used it shall be LOL.
Here goes…

Abundant

With life that’s passed
and times ahead
minutes are gathered
so abundantly fed.
Scenes we’ve recorded
and remember so well
might become as blessings
in moments of Hell.
Beyond the doorways
of out ways and in
there lives the conclusions
from where we’ve been.
Times so abundant
from yesterdays scenes
might become pathways
of nightmares or dreams.
It’s all how we view them
those times we recall
that display so abundant
the life over all.
So take a breather now
and look for the gain
that’s found so abundant
right after the rain.

There ya go.  I hope you understood the
poem and maybe even liked it hehehehe,
but I won’t hold my breath.  I also hope
that you enjoyed my rambling.  Hopefully
it brought you a little smile.  LOL I know
it made me smile thinking about it all 🙂
I just stopped to watch a few silly videos
with Judy.  LOL some old SNL humor
from the 70’s.  We all need a little bit of
laughter in our lives.  So I reckon it’s time
for me to tell you what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yep, 10 more poems with only
1 extra this week and in the midst of them
is 1 Christmas poem.  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.  OK,  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.  Now,  where can that
silly off switch be hiding this time LOL?
Hmmmm,  looking around the room for
something out of place or moving when
it should not be moving hehehe.  Aha,
I see ya you little varmint.  You should
of found something a bit larger to hide
behind.  My little Animal figurine isn’t
that big hehehe.   Better luck next week.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Painted Starry Night

With eyes of hopeful
and gleaming true
a night becomes a
wonderful view.
Maybe just a painting
of a time you see
as a starry night sight
of a dreams reality.
Scented with moments
that time can breathe
a painted starry night
that one did conceive.
It is but a painting
a scene that lives on
that was brought to life
as a wonderful song.
The style is magnificent
as it displays a sight
that of a creation
painted starry night.

Christmas Harmony

The chill of winter
begins its frost
as seasons greetings
display their thoughts.
Christmas harmony
sounds of a scene
a time you remember
a fantastic dream.
Found in the books
of a seasonal gaze
the harmony sings
of Christmassy days.
Maybe of a setting
with snow all around
and a house displayed
in a small country town.
Christmas harmony
begins with a sight
and then it becomes as
a moment’s delight.
The aroma of food
as it wafts in the air
brings back memories
of a time somewhere.
A scene you remember
from so long ago
that now displays
a Christmassy glow.
That special moment
that sings in you heart
as Christmas harmony
God’s work of art.

Ghost Of Life

Reflections past
an ocean breeze
begins a quest
for ones to see.
A time arrives
and passes by
leaving footprints
low and high.
Just like a ghost
of life and times
it all becomes
what future finds.
Those memories
that find a way
to leave within
each passing day.
A ghost of life
as a rising sun
grows a memoir
said and done.
Without any words
and without sight
the ghost of life
is distant light.
It’s still alive
as oceans swell
within the stories
times will tell.
It is remembered
as but a time
a ghost of life
within your mind.

Calming Waves

While sitting watching
the time move on
the waves of life are
singing their song.
In a calming essence
of times release
the waves become as
a moment’s peace.
Life is but a second
that’s surely displayed
scented of a summer
minutes have made.
Counted as a portion
that then perceives
as the calming waves
that time conceives.
I can now remember
those days so clear
the passages of time
of my yesteryear.
A seasonal glimpse
of a time I recall
a memorized moment
that stands out tall.
Watching the ships
as they sail on by
as I sat on the rocks
underneath the sky.
The blue skies of life
of the passing days
brought me alive
with calming waves.

Silent Sounds

Looking deep
into my dreams
I see a place of
wondrous scenes.
Geese that swim
in waters blue
beneath the sky
of a hazy hue.
Silent sounds
in light of day
then come alive
in their own way.
Scenes become
the greatest times
silent sounds
as earthly rhymes.
Then they fly
to another place
that lives within
a silent taste.
Food for the eyes
to see so clear
silent sounds
you cannot hear.
Yet they’re seen
as sounds portray
found so sweet
from day to day.
Just like a dream
a mind astounds
it comes alive
in silent sounds.

Spirit Birth

Inside the heart
of living things
there is a place
of raging streams.
The spirit thrives
in point and time
with birth of life
and its design.
We often lose
the sight of this
and one day
just reminisce.
The spirit birth
of life and death
is found within a
moment’s breath.
For as we gaze
at futures style
we often lose
a moment’s mile.
Yet as life is
looked upon
the spirit birth
is never gone.
It still holds fast
to seasons breeze
of which our eyes
may never see.
But when we leave
our flesh on Earth
we’ll then find
our spirit birth.

Fanfare For
The Common Man
Extra Verse

Beneath the rhythms
are so many words
a story,  a glory
as a flock of birds.
A fanfare for
the common man
displays journeys
to walk or stand.
It may seem simple
times record,
but the fanfare
is times accord.
Believing in rhythms
isms explained
much of our journey
is surely attained.
Times we echoed
just but a plan
we found fanfare
for the common man.
Forests of thoughts
displayed in time
seen as a rhythm
found as a rhyme.
Life is a doorway
to seasons displayed
as the magic reveals
what time has made.
Sometimes scenic,
sometimes glum
the fanfare is life
up under the sun.
Time is a painter
that moments define
as we continue
our frame of mind.
This is a journey
that we have at hand.
This is the fanfare
for the common man.

Sky Of Dreams

Fields of wonder,
time of peace
a sky unfolds
to give release.
Cloud formations
create a view,
a sky of dreams
in hazy blue.
Time’s a foothill
found in place,
a scene defined
as life’s embrace.
True are clouds
that paint the sky
a grayish tint
with their reply.
Without questions,
without words
the clouds display
what is not heard.
Yet when gathered
they can speak
a sky of dreams
as life’s antique.
Cracks of lightning
thunder roars
just like clouds
with open doors.
Scenes of wonder
times bestow,
a sky of dreams
can surely grow.

Circles Of Love

Stems of behavior
connect us in styles
sometimes seeking
some circles of smiles.
Trials we endure
are often our minds,
portions uncovered
and their own designs.
We are the branches
that become as a day,
the circles of love
within their own way.
Look with your heart
and not with your eyes,
see what that grows
as a blessings surprise.
Allow ones chances
to become good to go
and the circles of love
will blossom and grow.

A Path To The Sea

Thoughts recalled
a moment’s breeze
is found within
the distant seas.
The minutes gather
to form a bond
a path to the sea
that ones travel on.
It might just be
an imagination
a life’s adventure
times adaptation.
We all might see
a certain style
a path to the sea
with a little smile.
Our journeys may
be just a quest
a search within
to find some rest.
For as we wander
within our mind
a path to the sea
might then unwind.
Becoming a scene
that life displays
maybe a fantasy’s
wonderful ways.
A moment’s quest
might turn out to be
a journey in time
a path to the sea.

Reflecting Pond

When with worry,
when with pain
reflect upon
your daily gain.
Find the moments
the best to see
all your reflections
through history.
Take a breather
catch your breath
within the waters
spirits blessed.
Let your moments
find some peace
as reflections
give release.
Times and places
let them go
to find some peace
and let it flow.
When reflecting
don’t fall prey
to the sad
of a distant day.
The yesterdays
within your view
are not today
so don’t feel blue.
Look for smiles
to travel on
found within the
reflecting pond.

Haiku
for May 5,  2018

Through our decisions,
the directions that we choose
we discover time.

Countless are seconds
as they’re displayed in minutes
that hours define.

Painted as a scene
that lives and breathes among us
a painter shows life.

Throughout each day
times of deception appear
to fill in each void.

Winter through springtime
gives essence of the changes
that stand out the most.

A mere passing breeze
can become as a whirlwind
that’s not expected.

Beyond the starlight
there may be ones looking back
to see who we are.

So many people
seek answers without questions
and end up empty.

A flower’s burdens
are often found as raindrops
they are not getting.

Placing empty dreams
in the path of your journeys
could lead to deadends.

When time shows darkness
look for the light within it
and find you some peace.

Green grass of summer
becomes torment for mowers
and ones that push them.

Lost in a storm cloud
moments might seem extended,
but time will find peace.

When looking forwards
what’s behind you might get lost,
so don’t lose the past.

Displayed as rainbows
the sky shows many colors
as a sign of peace.

Various turnstiles
display only what you want
and not what you need.

Sharing a sunrise
with someone that you care for
makes it as Heaven.

Having and holding
does not display ownership,
but only a grasp.

One persons trash
might be anothers blessings
to help them get by.

Doorways we step through
often have troubles hidden
in the walls of time.

A ghost from within
can become your life’s nightmare,
so deal with the truth.

The past is the past
and today’s another day.
Learn to live with change.
