ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a fairly nice passed week.
The weather hasn’t been all that bad.
The temp has been staying in the 60’s
and 70’s,  but this week there might
be a couple of days in the low 80’s.
Thankfully that will soon change to
most days being in the 60’s and 70’s
as summer bids farewell.  Then the
temperatures will surely begin their
down hill fall to 50, 40, 30, 20 etc.
Then we will be seeing signs of the
first snowflakes of the season to fall
from the sky.  It’s so beautiful to
see as it decorates the landscapes 🙂
Yep,  I do love winter.  Though I
hate the price of heating our house
with heating oil,  but ya do what ya
gotta do.  Every place has drawbacks.
I would get tired of only seeing one
season or just mild changes and I’d
totally miss the snow.  My old body
cannot handle hot weather,  so this
is home.  I finally got my 8th book
published and it is in paperback
and Kindle Edition.  I had a heck
of a time getting it published LOL.
It seems Amazon was having a bad
day and they were messing up just
a tad hahaha.  Oh well,  it all got
done.  Anyways,  next topic.  Judy
had to go the doctor Thursday of
last week because the left side of
her mouth was hurting.  It seems
she has a few molars needing to
be pulled.  We’ve set her up for a
dentist appointment next month
early.  The doctor gave her some
meds to help to calm the infection.
My head is doing a lot better.  It
looks as though the shingles are
just about nullified.  The doctor
gave me some pills to help with
that and I have an appointment
next month to get the vaccination
for shingles to lessen the chance
of me getting them again,  but
I’m sure it won’t guaranty I wont
get them,  but at least it will make
it a lesser chance of getting them.
So what else is going on around
The Pearce’s Place?  Hmm,  well
the boys are doing well.  Since
we gave them a good shave,  they
have been more rambunctious
than ever LOL.  Even Benny’s
been playing like a pup again 🙂
LOL I just went to see where
they were,  being they weren’t in
here and I stuck my head around
the door to look in the kitchen
and Benny was standing there
with his little tail wagging madly.
Then Rocky poked his head in
from the porch and they both
came running LOL.  They were
on my heals all the way back to
the computer room hehehehe.
I gave them both a little treat 🙂
Now they’re lying in the floor
between Judy and I.  They’re
good boys 🙂 hehehe when they
wanna be.  We haven’t been
out and about much this week
due to finances,  but we might
have plans for my birthday.
Not sure what we will do,  but
we’ll do something.  I’ll turn 62
on the 31 of this month.  Yep,
getting older as time rolls on 🙂
I feel like I’m more like 91
turning 92 🙂  My old body has
had a few rushes in the aging
process if ya know what I mean.
So,  what else is there to tell you?
Well it looks as though God is
still watching over us as the days
and weeks pass us by.  There are
so many things that could of been
much worse,  but God intervened.
Thank You God for all that You
do and all that You will do as the
days pass us by.  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 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 call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may of found a decent
title just a few lines back and now
after checking I see that it has not
been used as of yet,  so used it
shall be 🙂  Wish me luck LOL.

What Else

With every footstep
and with every word
we travel onwards
sometimes so absurd.
We leave many scenes
as a destroyed phase
and then we’ll often
seek time to replace.
Not looking forwards
but often looking back
we will so often
get a little off track.
So what else is seen then
as we walk to and fro.
Time begins teaching
what we need to know.
God intervenes then
with more to discern
giving us the pages
we’re needing to turn.
So don’t let the moments
to be dust on the shelf
with you just wondering
and saying what else.

There ya go.  I don’t know what else
I could write LOL.  So I hope you at
least enjoyed my rambling even if you
didn’t like the poem hehehe.  Judy’s
behind me trying get the cheap HP
book to working right.  She’s deleting
a lot of stuff that is not needed.  LOL
the book only had 12 meg free.  She
is hoping to get all of the unneeded
stuff uninstalled.  Then if she is able
she wants to give it to her brother
that is in a nursing home so he can
maybe get on the internet and find
Facebook.  But actually we’re just
hoping he can just entertain himself,
so he’s not just lying in bed.  He’s
lost both of his legs due to diabetes
and gangrene.  His health is getting
worse.  Please keep him in your
prayers.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to tell you what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
I wrote 10 more poems, but none
are Christmas related,  I’m sorry.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all
of the haiku lovers out there.  I
hope you can find 1 or 2 of either
of both that you like.  Now I do
believe it is time for me to begin
my search for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish
you all a most joyous weekend
or what’s left of it and a truly
blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now
where is that ornery off switch
hiding or better yet trying to hide
this time?  Hmm,  looking high
and low,  right and left hehehe.
LOL I had no need to look in
all of those places because that
numskull is hiding right in front
of me right behind the lil statute
that our old neighbors gave me
that says I Think You’re Nice 🙂
I see ya you little varmint.  You
keep peeking out to see if I can
see you and that gives you away.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzz.

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

Waters Calm

Wading in waters
time seems so still
as what surrounds me
is a spinning wheel.
Life in its essence
is a page that’s found
scented with survival
as I look around.
Seeking for pleasure
of a gentle breeze
I walk with friends
in shallow seas.
Yet as a doorway
becomes my glance
the then waters calm
are songs to dance.
Friendship is found
in the waters of time
so often unnoticed
as an untimely mime.
You might see one
standing by your side
a friend to transcend
the moments applied.
Life is a pattern
that you need to be
a friend to a friend
in life’s changing sea.
For as the days pass
our life continues on
as true friends help us
to find waters calm.

Reflections Of Time

Looking through waters,
time frames we’ve seen
we might see reflections,
nightmares and dreams.
Scenes come to life
as the waters of time
displaying our memories
that live in our mind.
Life has many echoes
that we might try to hide
sometimes as a portion
of our life’s bumpy ride.
The scenes that time shows
may not be what we want
and be but only then
the bad times to haunt.
The reflections of time
can become as a show
displaying all the lessons
to help you to grow.
Change can be a journey
to become something good
as a moment in time
in blessings neighborhood.
The turning of pages
in the book of true style
can then deliver you
a heart warming smile.
It might seem as candy
as a time so divine
a page within a page
of reflections of time.

Distant Views

Seen in the distance
might be a phase,
time that has passed
into distant days.
A tractor might sit
just awaiting its time
or the clouds might sit
with beauty divine.
It could be a picture
or just memories
as those distant views
become deep seas.
You might remember
a hot summer’s day
that you went playing
or swimming away.
You might then recall
the best of the past
times walking gently
through the tall grass.
You might even find
a time you recall
bright colored leaves
displaying in fall.
Those distant views
that life gave free
may have come to life
for a moment to see.
Becoming an essence
of times daily news
found in a field
of your distant views.

Life In The Pink

Through our struggles
some days might seem
that of an ocean
or a rushing stream.
The waters envisioned
might become wild,
yet with a flower
can maybe turn mild.
The flower of life
as an ocean breeze
scented with textures
of life found at ease.
Yes life in the pink
can live within you
and when then in need
become as your view.
Seek for the treasures
of life in your mind
filled with memories
of a great point in time.
Let loose your sadness,
the way that you think
as you find a smile
with life in the pink.

Found At Peace

Travels of eyesight
dusk unto dawn
take us on journeys
our minds can live on.
Walking in a pasture
on a distant day
or riding a horse
times swish and sway.
The grass in a field
becomes as pure gold
as a time remembered
from young unto old.
Our eyesight displays
what that’s no more
and shows of the new
of which to explore.
Then found as peace
is a seasonal gain
when we look true
at the good to attain.
Often it’s hidden
within a field
sights that could be
the best to yield.
Allow your sight
to see a better day
while not only seeing
the sadness and gray.
Look for the beauty
and let sadness cease,
then for a moment
be found at peace.

The Small Things

The worries we have
might be so small,
but we’ve made them
to stand so tall.
The small problems
can become large
if we allow them
to daily take charge.
Time is a window
so many look through
seeking for dreams
to come into view.
We can change things
by the way we react
learning our lessons
and getting on track.
So many small things
can become great
if we always choose
to procrastinate.
Allow the beauty
that you never found
to become your sight,
in sky and ground.
Look now and see
all the wonderful scenes
found in the moments
within the small things.

Painted Flower

Many pictures
come in view
bringing scent
to me and you.
Some may seem
a little faint
as their only
painters paint,
but those flowers
still can be
the best in life
and best to see.
A painted flower
might display
the essence of
a wondrous day.

Winter’s Reflection

Winter recedes
to allow living spring,
but it’s remembered
as song that we sing.
Winter’s reflection
is that of a smile
throwing snow balls
as snowflakes compile.
Life is recorded
as a seasonal hue
planted in our minds
such a wonderful view.
God filled moments
on a heavenly quest
as winter’s reflection
displays the very best.
Blessings as winter
paints homes with snow
making them beautiful
a seasonal glow.
Some may not like it
as wintertime comes,
but then there are days
they’re out having fun.
Riding snowmobiles
through snowy trails
and building snowmen
with many details.
So take a breath now
and see the perfection
found in a moment of
winter’s reflection.

Within A Window

Within a moment
time is displaying
minutes and hours
many are playing.
Yet many times
in a window view
you might see life
of a different hue.
It might be a tree
or a solar sight
rocking in the day
and still at night.
You might even see
a fluffy design
clouds floating by
to live in your mind.
Time begins ticking
as life moves along
within a window
of dusk unto dawn.
Allow you heart
to find displayed
a moment of life
to not degrade.
Look at the sights
and find the style
the beauty of time
to give you a smile.
Find for a moment
a time with a glow
that comes alive
within a window.

Trails

A little walk
in distant days
displayed trails
just like a maze.
Winding through
to here and there
to then display
a breath of air.
Beauties of life
as it’s explored
the place I found
that I adored.
You might find
somewhere to go
with trails of time
in living flow.
You might find
your heart’s desire
in trails of life
in their entire.
Allow your feet
or mind to sail
to find you life
in wondrous trails.

Haiku
Aug 25,  2018

Beyond what we think
are things we might not believe
that exist in life.

Walking many trails
you might discover lifestyles
that bewilder you.

A flower’s own lifetime
begins and ends with seasons
of winter and spring.

Looking for a cloud
that is formed like memories
you might find some dreams.

Shadows of a tree
might seem so very creepy,
but they’re only limbs.

The moon glows brightly
as the sun’s own reflection
that lives in the night.

Lifestyles of a rose
are that of a connection
to the bumble bees.

Without some sunshine
many plants would wither away
leaving only death.

Tomorrows forecast
is an estimated guess
so don’t hold your breath.

Living in a dream,
you might wake up to changes
such as a nightmare.

Making like a weed
you can become one that’s plucked
because you’re trouble.

Need is confusion
as our wants become our needs
of which we don’t need.

The snow of winter
is a Christmas memory
that brings me a smile.

Sharing ones burdens
you can often create strength
stronger than burdens.

Without any rain
some plants have no chance to live,
but others will thrive.

Time in a bubble
is protected  from minutes,
but bubbles will bust.

Various changes
can become as good and bad,
for some are gambles.

Finding shooting stars
in the skylight late at night
some might not be stars.

A page within time
might hold many mysteries
we might one day see.

As God opens doors
He gives way for some chances
to go or stay put.

We are but a time
that so many might perceive
as never changing.

As we walk forwards
the past becomes memories
that we might regret.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well,  this week has been a rather achy
one as I have still had a bit of pain in
my head due to the Shingles virus that
took home upon my head.  The doctor
prescribed me some meds to help ease
the pain and I am scheduled to get a
Shingles vaccination next month.  From
what Judy and I have found,  it won’t
totally prevent me from having a flare
up,  but it will lessen the chances being
that mine was the type of flare up that
had no blisters.  So,  I didn’t write any
last week,  but I surely made up for
it yesterday LOL.  OK so,  you’ll hear
more about that in the second half of
this article.  Judy and I took a drive
down to Bangor Thursday to visit with
her brother that is in a nursing home
down there.  He’s not doing very well.
Our little boy/dog Rocky apparently
was not feeling well.  He had a few
accidents there and back,  but he’s
doing much better now.  Thankfully
we have a pet seat guard on the back
seat which prevents anything from
getting on the seat.  We just stopped
at the rest area and on the side of the
road and cleaned it up and drove on.
Oh yea,  I don’t remember if I told
you this last week,  but we’ve lost
our neighbors with the kids.  They
had to move being they could not
pay the rent due to him not working.
I miss those little kids.  They did at
times get on my nerves though when
they’d come ringing the doorbell at
all hours to just say high or when
I went out side just to get a breath
of air,  they’d see me and come just
a running.  But yet,  I did so enjoy
playing with them and watching
them play.  I took tons of pictures
of them playing in the snow and
having snowball fights and I also
took a few videos with one of them
little kids coming at me with huge
snowballs trying to throw them at
me LOL.  Yep,  I already miss the
kids.  I hope they come back to
visit once in a while.  Anyways 🙂
next topic.  The county road crew
have been working hard doing a
lot of work on our roads.  They’ve
really resurfaced the roads.  Yep,
and the road in front of our house
is about an inch higher now LOL.
They also fixed a little inclining
ramp from our driveway so that
we would have no trouble coming
and going.  They’ve been working
steadily.  Judy said they do this
every 10 years and we moved up
here over 10 and a half years ago.
So I guess it’s time for resurfacing.
They work on the roads every year,
but only do minor repairs unless
more is needed.  LOL I wish they
would make their way down our
driveway.  Talk about a bumpy
ride hahaha.  Almost makes my
body feel like it’s in a paint shaker
LOL.  There’s not been much else
happening around here.  The boys
are still the boys as they run and
play all throughout the house.
Since we shaved their hair off they
have both become more active 🙂
We’ve decided to give them a good
shaving every month,  but maybe
not during the winter months LOL.
Although we do have doggy clothes
to put on them to keep them warm.
But then they only go outside to
potty and come right back inside.
OK maybe not the same for Benny,
being he loves the snow and will
often be seen bouncing around in
it and climbing snow mounds to
look around.  Rocky will play a
little,  but he’s not as much of a
fan of the snow as Benny 🙂 LOL.
Winter’s not too far away 🙂 and
I can’t wait.  I love winter and all
of the snow.  I know,  you might
think I’m weird,  but I couldn’t
care less what you think LOL 🙂
The only thing that keeps me in
a high stress is worrying about
having heating oil which is the
main reason I’ve begun putting
100 dollars on our tab at the oil
company every month so to make
sure we can stay warm.  So when
we need it,  I won’t have to deplete
my bank account to buy us some
heating oil.  Anyways,  that’s all
that I have for ya.  Yep,  God’s
been good to us.  We can feel His
presence all around us.  Thank
You God for continuing to give
us what we need and or help us
to find the ways to get what we
need.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to begin my search 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 new poem.  So it’s off
I go,  to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE and
it looks as though I did not have
to look far.  Just a few lines back
I saw a word that might work well
for the title today.  So now to see
if I can do anything with it LOL.
Here goes…

Continuing

Roadways to journeys
time lingers on
continuing pathways
of right and to wrong.
We often will continue
what we know isn’t right
as we seek tomorrow
as the dark of the night.
Finding only sadness
and finding only pain
we’ll often just continue
what we always complain.
Yet there are many
that choose to turn away
and leave all those journeys
of a Hell bend array.
It’s then that the lessons
will become as our growth
as we travel rivers
in our life changing boat.
Learn from your journeys
what’s not meant to do
while you’re continuing
to learn something new.

There ya go.  I hope you liked and
maybe even understood the poem.
I also hope you enjoyed all of my
rambling.  I’m a rambling man 🙂
So,  I don’t believe I forgot to tell
you anything and if I did,  I guess
I’ll tell ya next week LOL.  Both
of the boys are lying in the floor
between Judy and I.  Right now
it’s 69 F degrees at 7:30 PM.  Not
too bad huh.  Yep, it’s already
beginning to cool down.  Tonight
it’s supposed to get down to 48 🙂
OH yea,  Judy went to craft night
Saturday night and she made an
awesome birdhouse.  I’ll put a
picture of it in my stationery so
that the ones of you that are in
fact receiving this in stationery
style will be able to see it.  So,
I reckon that’s it.  Now to tell
you what I tell you every week
and that is I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers I
wrote 10 more poems,  but no
Christmas poems and I once
again wrote 22 haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there 🙂
Yep,  I wrote all of the poems
and haiku yesterday (Saturday).
I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.
Now to begin my little search
for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you all
a joyful weekend,  what’s left
of it and a truly blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now,  to
find that ornery off switch LOL.
Hmm,  where can it be hiding
this time?  Hahahahahahahaha,
I see ya you blockhead LOL.
Hiding in one of your old places
isn’t that great when it proved
to be not so great back then
either LOL.  My camera hasn’t
grown any larger,  so if you’re
gonna hide behind it,  make
sure that you are actually behind
it instead of trying to take a lil
selfie 🙂  Try harder next time
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzz.

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

Green Butterfly

Found in a story
a moment to tell
life comes alive
as a ringing bell.
Things we miss
as we look away
to the sky above
from day to day.
Beneath our feet
we might not see
a green butterfly
in a grassy sea.
It might be still
so to not be seen
amidst the grasses
of shades of green.
Look even closer
you might perceive
more of nature
that God did weave.
Times perspective
is a moment’s sight
often as counted
day unto night.
So take a breather
and look around,
see all the beauty
the sky and ground.
Don’t let the minutes
to pass you by
and not see life as
the green butterfly.

Dreaming Memories

Moments pass
as time portrays
those memories
of distant days.
Dreams of times
that now are past
become the light
with shadows cast.
We all have days
that were divine
living breathing
inside our mind.
Those sweet times
we’ll never forget
as they come alive
much better yet.
Within our dreams
they seem so real
as colors binding
times to feel.
But yet they’re just
a mere memory
that comes to life
in you and me.
Remembered times
that we reminisce
found as a dewdrop
or a scented kiss.
They’re as the days
of morning’s breeze
we find when we’re
dreaming memories.

Beauty To Behold

In sight of time
a day will come
as life moves on
each setting sun.
A flower blooms
then goes to sleep
as time will pass
from week to week.
We might not see
the seconds gaze
that ones behold
in heartfelt ways.
Now might seem
as just a sight
a timeless frame
from day to night,
but yet each scene
that comes in view
might have a sight
for me and you.
Although we may
not understand
the sights we see
in sky and land.
The views are still
the scenes to see
that may be peace
so scenically.
A moment’s time
that might unfold
to give to us
beauty to behold.

Magical Places

With but a breath
a sight is born
some think illusion
and others forlorn.
Yet many places
have within them
magical powers
for time to begin.
Waters that ripple
in a passing lake
or lands so alluring
we have to partake.
The magic exists
maybe clearly to see
or maybe hidden
in moments debris.
Yet many seconds
will come and go
displaying magic
as waters that flow.
It might be found
as just but a time
a seasonal sight
that did so unwind.
The magic lives on
as a perfect desire
found for a moment
as a raging fire.
Look deep inside
as a heartbeat races
and find the beauty
in magical places.

A Journey’s Mind

Roads we’ve driven
there and back
might of put us
a little off track.
A journey’s mind
begins its quest
with so many times
and so many test.
We might struggle
with our directions
finding journeys
with some deceptions.
Each path we cross
is a chance to see
the better or worse
within you and me.
A journey’s mind
is often confused
afraid of being left
broken and bruised.
Sometimes the road
is a choice to take
to learn all you can
through each mistake.

Sticks And Twigs

Living as choices
changing with times
we’re often seeing
confusion in rhymes.
When looking down
at life in the grass
you might perceive
a shadow you cast.
As sticks and twigs
display their view
you might not see
what’s ahead of you.
Think about it clearly
as time moves along
we are the same
as dusk is to dawn.
We are with changes
the same as designs
as sticks and twigs
with confusing minds.
We’re often jumbled
in a stormy detail
scented with journeys
without a sail.
We’re sticks and twigs
of a destination
searching for truth
through investigation.
Looking to the sky
and the ground below
we’re sticks and twigs
that time does bestow.

Take A Seat

Throughout time
we need to rest
to then move on
and do our best.
So take a seat
from time to time
and rest your feet
and weary mind.
Don’t let lifetimes
bring you down
so take a seat and
lose that frown.
Look for sights
to bring a smile
a sky of blue
as clouds compile.
Find some peace
within the view
and don’t let life
to weather you.
Find a bench
or place to rest
and take a seat
let peace digest.

Beauty Of Life

A lake of beauty
a segment of blue
displays a glimmer
a wonderful hue.
Lily pads floating
with flowers upon
displaying colors
eyesight is drawn.
A special moment
with rippling scenes
begins a journey
for so many dreams.
The beauty of life
can be any sight
such as a morning
or darkness of night.
Far as a lakes shows
or pond in detail
the beauty of life
is time to inhale.
Breathe it in deeply
the waters of life
and then allow it
to ease your strife.
Look at the flowers
the lily pads too
and find much more
in waters of blue.
Find then a blessing
to fill your desire
the beauty of life
and all its entire.

Swinging With A Smile

Find your perception
in life’s breath of air
and swing in the breeze
with true love and care.
Seek for your survival
at peace with the day
as you swing with ease
while smiling away.
Look beyond sadness
and look beyond fear.
Find you a swing now
with life to endear.
Swing with a moment
maybe walking about
or swing by the ocean
as it goes in and out.
Swinging with a smile
is something you can do
to bring peace to life
and store within you.
Allow yourself moments
to rest for a while
as you find recreation
swinging with a smile.

Peaceful Comes

Seen for a moment
is a pond so blue
creating portions
of my certain view.
Hills in the distance
are echoes to see
found as a blessing
that God gave to me.
Peaceful is scented
with Heaven’s delight
painted with colors
of daytime so bright.
Peaceful comes slowly
as life moves along
singing its melodies
as words to a song.
Clouds moving slowly
across the days sky
as water reflects them
in the pond as reply.
The day writes words
as journals of time
as the peaceful comes
and lives in my mind.
It’s as an orchestra
instruments playing
beauty so heavenly
with time engaging.
It seems to be playing
guitars and drums
what that I perceive
as peaceful comes.

Haiku
for Aug 18,  2018

The virtues of life
are as windows to blessings
that we see clearly.

Time isn’t patient
for it stops for nobody
as it must move on.

Life is a mirror
reflecting all that we do
into others eyes.

Lost in a whirlwind
you might never see the end
until you’re thrown out.

On beyond the sky
holds a view from another
that might have answers.

The seams of a life
are often found as stitches
found through survival.

Looking for a time
to undo all that is done
might leave you searching.

Circles are doorways
found as repetitiveness
filled with redundance.

The light of a day
cannot follow into night
unless it is God.

Seamless are journeys
that seem to never change views,
but yet they’re changing.

Deserted highways
hold the void of destination
found as tumbleweeds.

When life gives lemons
look for lessons in the path
to make you stronger.

Raindrops from a cloud
are as blessings from Heaven,
but sometimes from Hell.

An opened window
can allow the outside in
and the inside out.

The Scientist’s thoughts
can create turmoil in truth,
for what they don’t know.

A book of ages
has many time frames to see
as the pages turn.

Our basic knowledge
is what we’ve learned throughout life,
but many have none.

As a doorbell chimes
it speaks without any words,
yet we understand.

The howl of a wolf
tells a story of its life
as it hunts its prey.

The wants that we have
are often confused with needs
and we don’t need them.

Throughout history
we’ll often make the mistakes
we’ve made time again.

Today is anew
as yesterday’s a shadow
that we remember.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another peaceful week around
the Pearce’s Place.  Judy and I went up
to Caribou Maine and I got my drivers
license renewed and it cost 30 dollars 🙂
Oh well,  I’m good for another 6 years.
I don’t drive that much,  but there are
times that I am needed to drive,  so it’s
good for me to have a drivers license.
Plus there are times that I set out to
take pictures on my own and I need a
drivers license to do that.  I will often
head out looking for good shots and
then pull to the side of the road and
start snapping pictures.  But of course
most of my picture taking is done with
Judy driving and me snapping away
at everything and anything hehehehe.
I have yet to of gotten started getting
my book 8 ready for publication,  but
I will LOL.  I don’t see no hurry.  It’s
not like the world will stop if I go too
slow hehehe.  Anyways,  I have already
begun writing for book 9 and I’ve got
31 poetry pictures written for it LOL.
Many ask me how I am able to write
so many poems and I honestly do not
know other than the fact is that I am
a poet and that’s what I do hehehe 🙂
Of course my gift came from God and
I try to use it to the best of my ability.
Anyways,  so what else has gone on in
this house?  Well,  we finally gave the
boys a much needed haircut or shave
as is turned out.  Yep,  we gave them
a good shaving.  They look so cute 🙂
almost like they did when we got them.
Although Rocky is quite a bit larger
than he was the day that we got him
in 2015 LOL.  Lil Benny hasn’t grown
much.  He’s close to the same size he
was when we got him in 2012.  They
are just like brothers though.  They
look out for one another and they
love to play together.   LOL since
their haircuts,  they’ve both been in
a feisty mood running all around the
house playing chase.  I can bet that
losing all of that hair made them feel
a lot better and gave them a lot  of
energy.  They have both been acting
just like pups since we shaved them.
I’ll put a couple of pictures of them
in the stationery for those of you
that get that format LOL.  Next topic.
It seems to be cooling down a little
at a time up this ways.  It’s supposed
to be in the mid to upper 70’s this
week.  Right now at 2 PM it’s 75 F
with a high of 78.  That’s ONE reason
that I like it up here a lot better than
Texas LOL.  Of course I saw where
Greenville Texas is on a bit of a cool
side today at 78 F and a high of 82 F,
but that will not last.  So,  what else
is going on around this place?  Well
to be honest,  not much hehehehehe.
Nope,  it’s been pretty docile as the
days all pass us by with autumn in
the lineup awaiting its arrival to show
us all of its magnificence and then
we’ll wait the first snowflakes of winter
to display their beauty.  I do love the
snow.  I love autumn as well,  but it
is short lived and you have to look
quickly and take pictures.  I do love
it up here even if it does have a few
drawbacks.  Anywhere you go you
will find drawbacks.  It all depends
on what you are willing to live with.
and if you have money to move 🙂
Judy and I are enjoying the seasons.
Maybe not so much the summer LOL,
but of course without summer, the
other would become monotonous 🙂
We thank You Lord for all that You
have given us and done for us,  for
we know that without you we are
empty.  We are grateful for Your
many blessings that You have put
into our lives.  Now I believe it is
time for me to be reading back on
all that I’ve written here to see if I
can find a good word or phrase that
I can use for the title for today’s new
poem.  So it’s away I go to that place
of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  It
looks as though I may have stumbled
upon a good title just a few lines back
in my rambling about autumn LOL.
Now to see if I can do anything with it.
Here goes…

Awaiting Its Arrival

Seasons of a portions
poured out like rain
bring many viewpoints
that ones will complain.
Yet for a moment
think back on a time
of a place you remember
that was oh so fine.
It might be a doorway
to another perspective
such as a turnstile
with another directive.
A scene from childhood
that is found to breathe
a way that you one day
would simply perceive.
Remember that bicycle
or swing you swung on
of another times portal
within another dawn.
You were then always
awaiting its arrival
as if it was a moment
that gave you survival.
Time is just a moment
and then it is dust
as awaiting its arrival
needs time to adjust.
Be thankful for seconds
and minutes that shine
for they are the moments
that make life sublime.
The seasons might display
from winter to fall
that awaiting its arrival
makes us thankful for all.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe it even spoke to you. I also
hope you enjoyed my rambling hehehe.
I just got up to go and get me a drink
and Rocky wanted me to play with him.
LOL he’s so cute.  They both are and
with all of that matted hair shaved off
they are both in a more playful mood 🙂
We had to wait for our new dog shears
to arrive before we could cut their hair.
We have 1 good pair of dog shears,  but
need 2 of them so we can work together.
We’ve got some old electric dog shears,
but they never did very well being they
were cheap pairs.  The boys don’t spend
all of their time in here in front of the
air conditioner and fans now.  They
run throughout the house hehehehehe.
But at this moment,  they are asleep
in the floor next to Judy.  They’ve
learned that when I back my chair
up it’s not a good idea to be under
my wheels LOL.  Anyways,  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,  but no
extras or Christmas related poems 🙂
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either or both
that you like.  Now with that said I
reckon it’s time for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off,
but not before I wish you a heavenly
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 ornery off switch
be hiding at this time?  Hmmmmm,
what is that movement from behind
my tissue box?  I’ve got to get up
and get a closer look.  Well hello
there 🙂  Trying a different spot huh?
Well try maybe not being so curious
about whether I can see you or not
and quit popping up to see me LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Reflected Thoughts

Looking seeing
times and places
brings in view
what life retraces.
It might just be
a ripple or two
that life displays
for you to view.
Maybe a scene
within the rocks
reflecting life
to turn and toss.
Becoming days
remembered well
the essence of
a thought set sail.
So many times
that carry on
as our reflections
of right or wrong.
We might not see
the views of times
that others see
inside their minds.
Reflected thoughts
of other days
wondrous thoughts
of great displays.
They might ripple
a moment’s cost
viewed as but only
reflected thoughts.

Majestically

Found as a novel
a moment may seem
life might encompass
a magical dream.
Majestically formed
as a seasonal sight
life might become
a painters delight.
Formed from a time
on a drive one day
a time so majestic
in a wonderful way.
Scented perception
as a blue sky above
with clouds of white
and all that’s thereof.
Maybe some darkness
as clouds with rain
seeking to unload it
on your windowpane.
Found in the distance
you might find true
a sight so delightful
that now lives in you.
Living as a dream
that breathes details
leaving you feeling
your on a carousel.
Beginning a design
that your eyes can see
it then becomes life
so majestically.

Say A Prayer

In midst of a day
say a prayer
for peace to come
with some fresh air.
When in a moment
as time flies by
say a little prayer
to the man up high.
Allow for a time
to be much more
as a little prayer
will open a door.
Look for the signs
that are all around
up in the sky
and on the ground.
Remember a time
in life of gray
and say a prayer
in a thankful way.
Look for the beauty
that seconds expose
found as a field
or one special rose.
Seek to remember
to give a little smile
when alone in time
of an awesome style.
Someone might see
as they stop and stare,
so then remember
to say a prayer.

Views Of Life

As stages change
to leave a path,
of times of pain
and aftermath,
it all can change
a time’s detail
that might display
an awesome scale.
A sky can change
most drastically
to fit the scene
as a raging sea.
It might procure
a dismal view
that can become
as a sky of blue.
Our views of life
from day to day
might not see
beyond the gray.
For as the minutes
tick on past
they might seem
as shadows cast.
Just like a day
that’s passed you by
and left a tear
within your eye.
But still with time
you can move on
with views of life
of a better dawn.

Summers Of Then

Then was a picture
alive to be seen
found in the waters
found after spring.
Summertime life
in a splashing style
finds many happy
as moments compile.
Scenes encompassed
as stories to tell
of summers of then
and a timeless detail.
Pages of a turnstile
become as a dream
with summertime days
in a lake or a stream.
The heat for a moment
is found but a time
in summers of then
as a magical rhyme.
Life is so special
with all that’s therein
remembering moments
of summers of then.

Just A Journey

Lifetimes remembered
that live on our minds
are just a journey
that a moment designs.
Sometimes as bumpy
as a trail in a field
and then some others
are journeys concealed.
Hidden in clockwork
as timeless portrays
might be a journey
throughout other days.
Scented with a flavor
of life’s dusty roads
is just a journey
that a moment unloads.
We’re often looking
for another time’s sight
and not seeing clearly
our left and our right.
Look for the blessings
that a journey presents
and find the moments
of greater extents.
For in our journeys
we might look away
and not see the best
that is coming our way.
Look along the road
of a momentous mile.
It’s not just a journey,
but a time to compile.

Choice Is Within

The little things
our eyes may see
might become
the best to be.
A passing scene
that falls in place
a choice within
a smiling face.
Things perceived
of grasses green
might become
a wondrous scene.
Such as a style
that time unloads
within our minds
that life bestows.
A little branch
that’s laid to rest
from time to time
of more or less.
It speaks words
without a sound
that eyes can see
upon the ground.
A time is seen
to choose to be
with closed eyes
or look to see.
It’s a moment
to begin or end
in life of ways,
choice is within.

Mixed Emotions

Inside a thought
of jumbled views
you might see no
choice to choose.
A branch of life
might not be clear
that’s found in life
of yesteryear.
It might be all
meshed together
mixed emotions
found wherever.
Within a moment
times portrayed
unlike orange juice
and lemonade.
The bristles might
become a chore
a time of life
to then explore.
Mixed emotions
might unwind
and live on
within your mind.
Such as limbs
of trees of life
held together with
fear and strife.
Allow some peace
to live as oceans
learned from time
as mixed emotions.

Fishing For Life

When in a dreamworld
of a fisherman’s tale
you might uncover
some wind and a sail.
Yet as you’re dreaming
you might stumble on
a time so sublime
of another days dawn.
Fishing for a moment
and fishing for a thing
while time is ticking
in a dreamers dream.
Look for the trueness
of a fishing reel
such as the blessings
your hands can feel.
Fish in the real world
and look for the truth
the peace of a moment
to live within you.
Don’t let the bad times
to envelop your eyes,
look for the blessings
that time might disguise.
Maybe in a photo
of a long time ago
you might of captured
what now needs to know.
A scene of a fisherman
with his rod and reel
that’s fishing for life
and a moment to feel.

Time Is A Flower

The beauty of a flower
is a blossoming style
scented with aromas
that give me a smile.
I find the beauty
as a wonderful thing
sounds that my eyes
can most surely sing.
Textured with life
of a flower’s design,
it’s a great portion
of a moment in time.
For as a flower
becomes what we see
it also might give
to a bumble bee.
Life is as nectar
in a flower’s display
timelessly found
in a wonderful way.
So many flowers
display their own style
maybe as an orchid
with its own smile.
Maybe as a rose
in the morning sun
showing us its beauty
and all that’s begun.
Life is as a window
with its magical power
displaying many scenes
for time is a flower.

Haiku
for Aug 11,  2018

Life is a flower
that blooms of many moments
throughout destiny.

The feathers of time
are as the wings of a bird
that display seasons.

Pages of a lifetime
often have some dog eared scenes
to help remember.

Within a storm cloud
some peace might be awaiting
to show a rainbow.

Beyond a doorway
there may be many windows
awaiting for you.

Minds of emptiness
hold only the shell of life
with no yolk within.

Tomorrows forecast
is but only a mere guess,
because it’s not here.

Even with a map
one can become lost in time
as pathways will change.

Looking for the truth
you might find many liars
that choose to deceive.

Needs that come knocking
might look to others as wants
through their greedy ways.

Change is a doorway
that has choices which to choose
that so many fear.

Compacting problems
into a much smaller view
can still mislead you.

The heat of moments
can become troubles doorway
just waiting for you.

Wintertime’s memories
are as Christmastime’s snowflakes
that become snowmen.

Losing to others
can become as a lesson
that becomes a win.

A page from our life
might become as a story
of another time.

Various windows
may have some misleading views
that are only lies.

A mind is wasted
when nothing is attempted
and you are static.

When trying too hard
you can push yourself too far
and create problems.

The sunshine is bright
even on a cloudy day
so do not be fooled.

When we move forwards
we might also go backwards
due to circumstance.

Life’s a mystery
that many may think they know,
but they’re just guessing.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a little warm up this ways,  but
I am guessing not near as warm as it has
been down south.  Today’s high is 82 F
which it is at this very moment.  Thank
God for our air conditioner.  Tomorrow
is supposed to be a high of 88 F,  but as
we all know that can change.  You can
never trust the weatherman to be totally
accurate being they are guessing,  hence
the word forecasting hehehe.  So I play it
by ear and just keep tabs on my weather
radar and all to see what is blowing in
and where from and there ya go,  the
weather from New Limerick Maine 🙂
There’s not been much going on around
the Pearce’s Place other than the regular
stuff.  Benny and Rocky keep us busy.
I had my first visit to my new physician
Wednesday and I like her.  She listened
to me and didn’t treat me like I don’t
know anything about my health issues
as the other ones did is why I fired them
as my physician so to say LOL.  This
lady even agreed with me on what I’m
able to eat and all.  She seemed to not
of cheated in school and paid attention
unlike my previous physician hehehe.
LOL my most previous physician even
thought I was not thinking clearly when
I told her I did not have a colon and I
was void of a 3rd or my small intestines
and so she gave me an Alzheimer’s test.
LOL I have seen some not so bright
physicians.  I thank God for the good
ones such as Dr. Reed that saved my life
being he was the one that operated on
me when I had Ulcerative Colitis which
turned into a version of Crohns.  So,
you can blame him for me pestering
you with my journals LOL.  I lived 🙂
Thank you Dr.  Reed of Medical City
in TX.  So what else is going on around
this place?  I’ve ordered us some Pro
pet shears to use on our dogs and we
have another so we can work together.
We’ve got some cheap pet shears,  but
they don’t work that great,  so we’re
gonna put them in a box for backup if
we need them.  I also ordered Judy a
new coffee maker being her other one
died.  She loved her Keurig so I ordered
her another one.  I’ve figured it was
time for me to begin putting money on
our heating oil tab,  so I put 100 dollars
on it and I’ll do the same next month
so when winter does get here,  we won’t
have to come up with a large sum of
money to have heating oil delivered 🙂
If you buy less than 100 gallons,  you
have to pay for the delivery which is
30 dollars.  I’m trying to save up so
I can fill our 250 gal tank 🙂  We’ve still
got a little bit less than a quarter of a
tank left over from last winter.  That’s
one draw back to living up here.  We
have long winters and heating oil or
kerosene as it is called,  is not cheap.
As the temps leave the subzero stats
I’m able to buy the cheaper fuel,  but
if I buy it during the colder months
it will jell.  Of course for the most
part I can use an anti jelling solution
sold at Walmart to prevent it if it’s
only like 20 F degrees or so,  but even
still it’s a risk,  because the weather
has a mind of its own and can turn
mighty cold at the drop of a hat LOL.
So I try to watch where and when I
drop my hat hehehehe.  LOL don’t
ya just love my humor hehehe!  Judy
is playing Candy Crush Saga on her
laptop PC and Rocky is lying at her
feet.  Benny must be lying down at
the front door or on the porch.  He
loves to look outside.  He’ll go out
when it gets cooler.  I guess it’s just
a bit too warm for him right now 🙂
He’s not alone.  It’s not only a bit
too warm,  but it’s a lot too warm
for me hehehe.  I just went to get me
some more orange juice and noticed
that Benny was not inside anymore
and I looked outside and he’s lying
under the car in the shade.  He loves
to watch people and nature.  He’s
kind of like me LOL.  If I could
join him under the car in the shade
I would hahaha.  LOL I’d have to
jack the car up a bit for me to fit
my big old body under it hehehe.
Yep,  it looks as though God is
still watching over us.  We have all
that we need and even a few wants.
He’s most surely blessed our home
as well as us.  Thank You God for
all that You do and all that You
will do.  Ok so is there anything else
that I haven’t shared with you.  Oh
yea,  Judy went to her sister’s house
Saturday to baby sit their 4 Yorkies
while they went to their sons wedding.
I stayed home with the boys and did
a bit of writing.  It would of been a
madhouse around here if they had
brought all 4 of them Yorkies over
here and I would’ve never gotten a
thing written LOL.  Anyways,  that
is all for now.  I believe it’s now time
for me to look back on all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find me a
good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new
poem.  So it’s away I go to that little
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE 🙂
I think I may a stumbled upon what
seems to be a good title just a few
lines back in my rambling and now
after checking I see it has not been
used yet,  so used it shall be.  Here
goes…

People And Nature

We all might seem
to jump and jive
to our own way
to stay alive,
but truth is this
we all can find
times of alikeness
in all mankind.
People and nature
are connected truth
within perspective
or how we view.
Nature is changing,
but it’s still the same,
for it’s a portion
of how that it came.
People are also
changing their minds
seeking for others
or time after times.
We might encompass
a different scale
but we’re connected
as clouds set sail.
You and I surely
might look so strange,
but it’s the difference
that times interchange.
So look much deeper
into what you see
people and nature
connect you and me.

There ya go.  If it makes no sense to
you then,  I am sorry.  It’s just what
came out of my mind.  There are times
that what I read back to myself does
not make any sense at the moment,
but then later I read it and understand.
I guess that’s just how God uses me.
🙂  Anyways,  I hope you enjoyed my
rambling.  I do tend to ramble don’t
I LOL.  So,  I wonder if I’ve forgotten
anything?  Nope don’t think so.  LOL
Benny must of seen me looking outside
and followed me back in.  I just turned
around and saw him lying in the floor
behind me.  The family is all present 🙂
OK so now I reckon I need to tell you
what I tell you every week and that is
I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers,  10 more poems with 1 extra.
LOL I had actually forgot that I wrote
it.  I thought it fit a picture I had picked
out and then decided to hold onto it
and write another for the picture that
I picked out.  LOL I saved the poem
in Draft 🙂  Anyways no Christmas
poems this week.   Maybe next week.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either or both
that you like.  Now,  I reckon it’s time
for me to begin my search for that
hardly elusive off switch LOL,  but
before I wish you a truly blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  OK,  where are
ya you silly off switch?  Hmmmmm,
I believe I spy with my one good eye
a bit of movement from where there
should be no movement.  Yep  from
there behind my pair of bifocals that
are in their case I see my flashlight
rocking just a bit which should not
be rocking at all 🙂  Hey,  guess what?
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Just But A Day

Today’s a day
that time has found
so take the time
to look around.
See all the beauty
you may of missed
when you began
your daily list.
Don’t allow sadness
to tear you apart,
look for the signs
of God’s work of art.
Maybe well hidden
or maybe a time
when you were in
a bad state of mind.
It’s just but a day
that came unwound
so take a deep breath
and look around.

Within The Leaves

Scenes by sight
might not display
the sights within
of will and way.
Displaced in time
our eyes may be
while we’re viewing
true reality.
Within the leaves
within our minds
we might perceive
some weird designs.
Yet our vision
might be blurred
as we are looking
at times absurd.
Let your eyesight
be cleared away
to see the best
in clouds of gray.
Look for the rain
and true blue sky
as it clears away
and birds will fly.
Then look around
and see the sights
found in sunshine
and darkest nights.
Find the brightest
greatest design
within the leaves
of time to time.

Seeking Dreams

I’m flying up
to seek my dreams
in clouds above
and wondrous things.
Upon a bird
into the sky
I’m seeking dreams
that don’t run dry.
As life begins
it leaves in place
a time so fine
for stars in space.
Amidst the night
as time moves on
I’m seeking dreams
till mornings dawn.
While life is found
as skyline scenes
I sleep in peace
while seeking dreams.

Clouds Of Life

Designs of times
within the sky
are often clouds
that float and fly.
Creating pictures
scenes to see
as clouds smile
at you and me.
Formatting skies
into a view
a sight to see
in wondrous hue.
Displaying life
of certain gaze
amidst the time
of passing days.
Clouds of life
are made to be
designs to find
and rains so free.
They give chance
for new details
pictures forming
ships with sails.
They even bring
what I adore
lightning joined
by thunder’s roar.
This is the story
that does contrive
the scenes I see
in clouds of life.

Memories Of Then

Life is a doorway
with windows to view
scented as sometimes
mornings of dew.
Life begins knocking
with past to display
found as remembered
a momentous day.
A day of connections,
a day of true bliss,
a day you remember
you now reminisce.
A time that lives on
in your dreams at night
as all your memories
are found to take flight.
Within our imagination
we hold the golden key
to unlock the ventures
that live in you and me.
The memories of then
can then come in view
of so many moments
that might seem anew.
Memories recorded
of a so distant time
formed as a moment
that heartbeats unwind.
Time’s but a pageant
that I remember when
found in perception
of memories of then.

Making Trails

Winter’s grasp
displayed a sign
a place to see
of its design.
With a snowy
scene of white
found within
the day’s sunlight.
Our two doggies
needed to poo
and so I plowed
a winter’s view.
Making trails
within the snow
there and to
and to and fro.
I plowed away
the snow of time
making trails
for them to find.

Bridge Of Style

As roads will end
there is a way
to look for better
day to day.
Maybe a bridge
to cross and see
what that’s there
a slight degree.
A certain style
for you to find,
a life of times
to then unwind.
Like a thread
that then unravels
scenes to see of
distant travels.
Your eyes become
affixed on days
timeless views
of so many ways.
Look across
the river wide
and see what time
has then applied.
Allow yourself
a moment’s rest
as you cross
to more or less.
For there’s time
to reconcile
finding peace
a bridge of style.

Clouds May Form

Rushing waters
troubled ways
may become
some better days.
Clouds may form
above your head
and then seem to
fill with dread.
Yet as waters
flow on through
the passing clouds
will leave you too.
Stories written
words may rhyme
bringing sight
a moment’s time.
Rains might fall
into our lives,
but a rainbow
might outsize.
Bringing forth
a wondrous view,
a sight to see
in a sky of blue.
For the moments
now and then
can give breath
to begin again.
Leaving chances
daily born
in the lifestyles
clouds may form.

Time Will Pass

A puppy’s smile
becomes a dream,
a simple time
in grasses green.
Minutes display
passing days
a wondrous scene
of which to gaze.
A tiny heartbeat
shares its time
for a moment
then to find.
Looking closer
you might see
how this puppy
smiles with glee.
For it’s content
to rest a while
as it lies there
with a smile.
Yet it’s only
a shadow’s cast
for it’s proof that
time will pass.

The Oh Of Life

Minutes that prosper
become as a glance,
a time you might see
as a song and dance.
A field full of beauty
with a style of its own
displays a landscape
where grass has grown.
With colors united
but of different shades
they tell a story
how peaceful is made.
Leaving all differences
with just a style
as the oh of life
that moments compile.
Scented with seasons
aromas to breathe
in a field of life
that is sure to succeed.
It becomes greater
as colors combine
into the essence
of sceneries rhyme.
We often miss it
while looking away
seeking the other
of day after day.
Yet the true beauty
still lives and breathes
as the oh of life
that time interweaves.

Peaceful Can Be

While life moves on
and leaves its mark
we might see day,
we might see dark.
For as we struggle
with a life’s design
we might also
change our mind.
So many pathways
times conceive
might display
the webs we weave.
Just like a spider
spins its web
we might also
make our bed.
Creating problems
that come in view,
the crazy things
of which we do.
Peaceful can be
a daily breeze
that rustles through
the flowers and trees.
Just like a mirror
reflecting thoughts
we can be as
found or lost.
Allow the blessings
that God gave free
to show you truly
how peaceful can be.

Haiku
for Aug 4,  2018

Need is confusing
when want comes in the picture
to become as needs.

Tomorrow’s not here,
but it is within our thoughts
filled with deception.

Loss is just a word
that can be replaced by gained,
with lessons we’ve learned.

A field full of grass
becomes as a nemesis
to a landscaper.

Winter’s remembered
can be snowflakes falling down
or the freezing cold.

Time is a number
that many count too quickly
due to their hurry.

The past is the past,
but it can help the future
if lessons are learned.

Flowers of springtime
become beauty in summer
as soon they will die.

Pages from our life
might not have the right numbers
in our memories.

Searching for blessings
might cause you to not see them
due to many wants.

The flavors of life
often have some bitter ones
that are good for us.

Change is perception
that we often don’t agree
because we’re afraid.

Beyond our eyesight
is a view that many see,
but some choose not to.

Windows of the mind
are doorways to tomorrow
we need to explore.

Essence of the heart
is that of a beating drum
that some never hear.

Spirits all around
are of good and bad nature
and we need to choose.

Despite our choices,
our pathways will continue
through the good and bad.

Peace is a journey
that has many turns and twist
through dedication.

When hearing gossip
it’s better to not repeat,
for it could be lies.

Seen as a flower
one might find much deception
as thorns impale.

Size does not matter
when we’re all of flesh and blood,
so look at the heart.

Colors of people
are nothing more than humans
that look differently.
