Look Ahead

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another week gone by as we’ve
reached the mid portion of September 🙂
The passed week has been without much
other than me getting my Shingles virus
vaccination.  Judy is on the list to get it
as well,  but there is a long waiting list.
Anyways,  we’re still hanging in there as
we’re waiting for autumn to awaken with
its many colorful leaves.  Then I’ll be
searching for the first signs of winter
and the first snowflakes to fall from the
sky.  My daughter Jamye is trying to
find a way to make it up for Christmas,
but she keeps running into problems.
I hope she is able to get her problems
resolved and make it up,  but it is in
God’s hands and what  ever happens
will happen.  I am praying for her and
her daughter (my granddaughter Sami).
So,  what else is there to tell ya?  Well.
it’s been a little warm up this ways this
passed week.  The highest temperature
though has been but only 80 F degrees.
Today the high is 75 F degrees but it
has already cooled a bit being now it’s
around 72 F degrees.  We’re expecting
a little rain to come Tuesday evening 🙂
but we all know,  that could change.
So,  what else is going on here at the
Pearce’s Place?  Judy borrowed her
sisters steam cleaner and is fixing to
do our bedroom,  but first she has to
vacuum it.  I asked her if she needed
my help and she said no,  I guess I’ll
continue with the journal 🙂  Benny
and Rocky are in the bedroom with
Judy watching her vacuum.  They’re
curious little boys LOL.  Although
Rocky tends to stay far from the
vacuum,  because the sound scares
him.  Benny on the other hand will
just follow her around hahaha.  The
same goes for when I am using the
snow blower,  but then it’s both of
the boys.  Rocky doesn’t seem to
be afraid of the snow blower a bit.
In fact they will both often get right
in my path wanting me to blow snow
on them LOL.  They are characters.
There’s not much to tell you this
week.  Judy and I have pretty much
just hung around the house,  but
then last night (Saturday),  Judy went
over to her sister’s house for craft
night.  Judy made a beautiful wreath.
A Halloween wreath to be more to
the point.  She said she was doing
it in purple and black and I thought
to myself,  that’s going to look more
black than anything,  but it actually
came out quite nice as she also added
some sparkling iridescence to it that
made the colors pop.  Judy’s very
creative.  I hope she does a few more
paintings soon.  I love her artwork 🙂
I wish I was that creative,  but all I
am is a poet,  photographer and a
drummer.  The only creativity in me
is found in my poetry LOL and I’m
hoping that my books begin selling
one day soon.  I’ve sold a small few,
but nothing substantial.  Hopefully
when I’m dead and gone,  they’ll
start selling enough to provide Judy
with a little bit of an income to help
her get by.  Whatever happens,  it’s
in God’s hands.  When we’re doing
the best we can,  worrying about the
future only causes ulcers and panic.
We all have our flaws and we may
never reach the level of want that we
are striving for,  but we will get what
we need if we don’t give up.  Too many
give up before they’ve even begun and
that only leaves you looking back with
regret wondering why you didn’t try.
Don’t cry about the past.  It changes
nothing.  Look ahead of you and do
the best you can today and the future
will be as it should be.  Maybe not
what you would want,  but the way
it should be.  God sends angels to
help us through our trials.  So many
will turn them away due to their ego.
Don’t let your ego to prevent an angel
from helping you.  Some angels might
be friends of yours or people that you
meet as ships sailing through.  Let
God help you.  Thank You God for
all of the many angels that you’ve
sent to help and guide me through
life.  Now I believe it’s time for me
to start reading 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 little
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE 🙂
I believe found a decent title just a
third of the way back in my rambling
and now after checking I see that it
has not been used as of yet,  so used
it shall be today :).  Here goes…

Look Ahead

Don’t be always
looking back
and seeing how
you got off track.
Look ahead
and see the path
the better way,
but not too fast.
Don’t let hurry
guide you through,
for sometimes
it hides the view.
Passing scenes
of beautiful finds
might be blurry
as hurry defines.
Don’t let baggage
of yesterdays
to hold you back
in saddened grays.
Look ahead
and see what’s there
within the chances
found in a prayer.

There you go.  I hope you liked the
poem.  Also I hope you enjoyed my
rambling.  Judy has finished with the
carpet in our bedroom at least for the
moment.  She plans on us doing it a
few times being it’s never been cleaned
other than vacuumed and it’s caught
a lot of the boys growing.  If ya don’t
know what I mean.  I mean teaching
the boys that they are to go outside
to pee LOL.  Rocky still has a little
bit of problem with it,  but Benny’s
no problem.  Anyways,  we’re going
to do the whole house before it’s all
said and done,  before we have to
return it to Judy’s twin sister Trudy 🙂
So,  that’s about it, other than what
I tell you every week and that is,  I
wrote some more poems and haiku 🙂
Yeppers,  10 more poems,  but this
time with 1  extra which happens to
be a Christmas poem that I wrote
yesterday while Judy was gone LOL.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either or both
that you like.  Now I believe it’s time
for me to begin my search for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too…
Now where can that ornery off switch
be hiding this week?  Well,  as I look
around the room I seem to notice a
bit of movement behind our coin
wrappers box.  LOL this time I see
that you were trying to be still but
ya just slipped off the other side
and were reaching for a nonexistent
handhold hehehe.  Better luck next
week.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzz.

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

Rocks That Sleep

So many people
just lie around
without trying
a sight or sound.
Actions are only
as blades of grass
that tell stories
of times that pass.
So many moments
will pass us by
if we just give up
and never try.
Rocks that sleep
are winds of time
when they’re seen
within the mind.
So many display
a distant hue
just like a rock
of thereunto.
Many are rocks
of disregard
watching waiting
within their yard.
They just watch
to weather about
never seen moving
in ways or out.
So many people
worry and weep
not doing nothing
just rocks that sleep.

Journey’s Road

Wheels become as
pens to write
throughout daytime
then to night.
A simple story
that times unleash
filled with wonder
seeking peace.
A journey’s road
begins its quest
north and south
and east and west.
A scenic memoir
words begin
as time encounters
where you’ve been.
We all journey
our own little way
from time to time
and day to day.
The roads of style
display their view
a book of pages
thereunto.
One day we might
discover scenes
passing ages
rushing streams.
Some might view
their life’s abode
as that of the
journey’s road.

Shadows Of Desire

Beach side memories
we find in the shadows
scented of the ocean
in timeless afterglows.
I can hear the waves
that are crashing ashore
telling of a story
of a time long before.
Moments I remember
are as essence of the sun
in shadows of desire
we’re truly having fun.
Walking taking pictures
of each sight that we see
as waves come crashing
on you and on me.
Mornings encompassed
of a seasonal request
as shadows of desire
that are truly of the best.
My wife and I look out
to the waves of time
and see their abundance
of a wondrous design.
Seeming as a magical
time that comes alive
bringing forth blessings
that help us to survive.
Life is as seconds
that many might forget
losing them in waves
of a moment’s sunset.
Time is but an ocean
with heartbeats afire
filled with the memories
of shadows of desire.

Sky Of Art

That of a painting,
but in the sky
is an artful scene
of heaven’s reply.
Telling a story
from here to there
with drops of white
and a little flair.
Smudges of time
with a dab of blue,
the sky of art
is a magical view.
It displays scenes
as marvelous sights
scented with life,
the days and nights.
That of a painting
a wondrous design
painted with life
to live in our mind.
Seeming iridescent
as the sky displays
clouds of white
and some of grays.
The minutes pass
as we’re looking on
seeing the artwork
from dawn to dawn.
Scenes of emotions
will always impart
found up above
in a sky of art.

Mirage Of Autumn

Reviewing photos
of distant sceneries
I can see autumn
in colorful leaves.
I can even smell it
with aromas so fine,
a mirage of autumn,
such a seasonal time.
With accents of life
in some magical ways,
a mirage of autumn
is a timely phase.
It comes and goes
as minutes tick on
bringing forth colors
that’ll soon be gone.
This is a moment
that many will seek
searching all around
for just but a peek.
The colorful hues
the leaves become
when changing colors
after summer’s sun.
The season awaits
the wintertime snow
and then for spring
to once again grow.
Yet now it’s possibly
a ghost of time
a mirage of autumn
for eyes to find.

Distant Hills

Looking in the distance
you might see a view
some distant hills rolling
beneath a sky of blue.
A time you’ll remember
as the minutes tick on
as the rolling continues
of hills thereupon.
You might then envision
yourself summers days
walking in the distance
on hills that you gaze.
You might even imagine
a meadow that’s revealed
that for a brief time
was so very concealed.
Yet your imagination
may discover other things
a field full of wonder
as rivers and springs.
Scented with the dewdrops
of a morning of style,
you might imagine
what a dream can compile.
Those distant hills might
come alive as you think
as you go to the waters
to get yourself a drink.
Yet this might be a dream
or just your imagination
as distant hills of time
become your destination.

Seaward Gaze

Standing and affixed
on the seaward sky
I find the sunshine
as a glimmering high.
It enlightens emotions
that live deep within
while looking seaward
watching waves begin.
The calmness of style
of a timeless scene
is a seaward gaze
and a watery dream.
My eyes stay affixed
on the bright sunlight
as waves come crashing
right there in my sight.
I can smell the ocean
as it wafts in the air
the scent of a journey
with a seascape flair.
In a seaward gaze
my mind’s hypnotized
as I stand watching
and waves are apprised.
It’s a magical moment
that came into phase
as I stood watching
my seaward gaze.

Jumbled Thoughts

We often find
a time and place
mixed emotions
needing faith.
Thoughts may be
a cloud’s array
jumbled scenes
from day to day.
Blessings counted
can help us see
the best in life
for you and me.
God is always
there with love
pouring down from
heaven above.
Life gets better
if we let go
of all the baggage
to and fro.
Allow your life
to set things free,
things not good
for you or me.
For as we struggle
to hold on tight
to baggage of life
that is not right,
we might become
so sad and lost
within the moments
jumbled thoughts.

Tracks May Curve

Now and then
our times may show
a where and when
in to and fro.
Turning churning
days desires
tracks may curve
with minutes fires.
We might find
a day or two
where tracks of life
are best to view,
but then they might
just go astray
as they curve
in every which way.
It’s then we must
discern our path
and slow it down,
not go too fast.
For tracks of life
might swing a right
and leave you there
in another sight.
For as the scenes
become your view
the tracks may curve
to enlighten you.
So when your life
is going smooth
tracks may curve to
change your groove.

Living In Pink

Among so many
a life might portray
pinkish processions
just a little bit gray.
They might appear
as a better view
while living in pink,
but maybe as blue.
So many will hide
the way that they feel
not showing truly
what all they conceal.
Living a liars world
that’ll surely unfold
living in pink ways
when they’re so cold.
Don’t let your ego
to hide what’s true
making ones think
what isn’t so you.
Allow your pride
to release your fear
and learn to display
what may not appear.
A flower might seem
as a beautiful style
hiding the ugly
behind a little smile.
Learn to let go
of a egotistic way,
for living in pink
might end up so gray.

Christmas Days

With summer’s heat
and autumn’s drive
the scent of Christmas
comes alive.
It starts as an echo
that I endear
songs about Christmas
of year after year.
Remembering scenes
as snow of white
those Christmas days
such a wonderful sight.
Songs on the radio
playing Jingle Bells
and Silent Night
with a story to tell.
It’s the sweetest sound
for hearts to find
on a troubled day
to ease the mind.
Christmas gives hope
for a peaceful life
found in a snowflake
with lesser of strife.
So when I envision
that season of hope
my mind takes a trip
on a Christmas slope.
Summer might be
of the seasonal phase,
but joy’s still found
in Christmas days.

Haiku
for Sept 15 2018

With life comes moments
that we might not remember
as the way they were.

Looking for new ways
amidst our yesterdays thoughts
might turn out insane.

Without our struggles
we would not learn very much,
for trials teach more.

So many flowers
show but only a season
and then fade away.

The truth of passion
is often viewed as desires
that are only lies.

Windows to the mind
can become clouded with time
and hide what that’s true.

Living as blades of grass
you might forget the mower
that will cut you down.

Beyond the starlight
holds a place that becomes dreams
in the dark of night.

Focusing on pain
can create a troubled life
when it is peaceful.

Footprints on a beach
can be pathways to the sea
that came to explore.

Trading your lifestyle
for one that you do not know
can lead to trouble.

Some stop signs of life
are often hidden from us
until we get there.

Passing as a breeze
some moments might seem stormy
until they have passed.

A sprout of flowers
will not blossom its beauty
unless it’s watered.

Meaningless chatter
brings no view of perspective,
so say what you mean.

Losing ones pathway
does not mean that they are lost,
but just turned around.

The doorknobs we turn
can often become nightmares,
but also as dreams.

Tripping over holes
that we ourselves created
is considered fact.

Eyes are a turnstile
that look and then look again
at what that is gone.

Reacting to pain
is what many misconceive,
for they do not know.

A summertime field
displays signs of the changes
that autumn reveals.

Spirits of loved ones
might become as our angels
that watch over us.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been cooling down with each passing
day and I love it.  I’m planning on having
a little cook out today,  making Judy and
I hamburgers and hot dogs.  We brought
in all of our flowers due to this morning
and next morning being in the mid to low
30’s.  Judy bought some shelves so that
we could put the plants in the spare room
in front of the window so they can get a
little sunlight.  They’ll at least get some
morning sunshine.  It’s better than none
or leaving them out to freeze 🙂  Right
now at 1:30 PM it’s 60 degrees.  That’s
the high for today.  Of course you must
know that I mean Fahrenheit hehehe 🙂
Yep,  the weather is a whole lot different
than down Texas ways.  Judy is in the
kitchen right now trying to unclog the
sink.  Pouring unclog stuff it.  I can’t
remember the name of it.  I went in to
check on her a bit ago and it looks like
the stuff worked.  I’ll fix us breakfast
when she’s done washing dishes.  We
take turns doing chores around here.
That’s the way it should be when both
are retired LOL.  Of course there are
times that one or both of us are not
up to par and the other has to try to
do what we can.  That’s life and that
is love.  My daughter Jamye sent me
a message the other day.  She wants
to come up for Christmas,  but she’s
at the moment struggling to find the
finances to do so.  I hope she is able.
Judy and I would help out if we were
able,  but we are strapped for cash as
is.  Jamye said she needs to come up
with 700 dollars for the trip.  All we
can do is pray.  It would be great to
see her again and spend Christmas
with her.  I’m sad though that her
daughter (our granddaughter) will
be with her daddy (Jamye’s ex) for
Christmas.  Anyways,  I hope Jamye
can make it up.  Now,  next topic 🙂
I fixed Judy and I Eggos and sausage
for brunch.  She just asked me  if I
would carry the lawnmower outside
so she could mow a bit.  I put the
battery in it as well as the weed eater
and carried them both outside.  I
told her I would come out and help
when  I’m done with this.  We love
our new lawnmower.  It mows and
mulches and all in one shot without
a bag to mess with.  It came with a
bag attachment,  but we prefer the
other attachment that I bought that
pushes the mower grass down to be
mulched to where you can just keep
on mowing.  We’re set for summer
and winter as we also have our snow
blower and snow shovel that operate
using the same 40 volt ION battery.
We’ve got 2 batteries and 2 chargers,
so we’re good to go.  Back when we
first moved up here,  Judy was still
working and I was having to get up
at 4 AM during the winter months
and shovel snow from the car and
make a path.  On top of that it was
often below zero LOL.  Now with
our battery powered snow blower
and snow shovel,  it wouldn’t be that
bad.  No matter,  now with us both
retired,  I just go and blow the snow
when we need to go some where 🙂
like the store or to the doctor,  but
I don’t dare let it sit for too long,
or the snow with become packed
with a hard outer shell making it
difficult to blow.  Oh well,  if that
happens,  our battery powered snow
shovel digs right through it hehehe.
Anyways,  I just thought you would
like to know how we survive up here.
Judy’s behind me relaxing drinking
some coffee.  Both of the boys are
lying in their doggy beds between
Judy and I.  Tomorrow I’m going
to have my Shingles vaccination.
It should lessen the chances of me
getting them again.  Judy got her
a prescription from her doctor to
get the vaccination and she might
do that sometime this week as well.
She might get it the same time that
I do at the pharmacist.  No matter,
she’ll get it done.  She saw what
kind of pain I went through and
she decided she didn’t want to go
through that LOL.  At first she had
thought I was having an aneurysm.
Thank God it wasn’t 🙂  So,  what
else is there to tell ya?   Oh yea,
Judy went to the Dentist Wednesday
after a nurse had told her that her
molars were in bad shape and they
were the cause of the swelling and
pain on the left side of her face,
but the dentist said that one of her
teeth had a rough place on it that
caused a canker soar and he just
ground off the rough spot.  He said
though that part of her problem
could be that she has a impacted
wisdom tooth and if the swelling
doesn’t cease,  she may have to
have it cut out.  But it seems that
with him grinding that one tooth
it did the trick.  Judy’s not hurting
anymore and the canker sore is no
more.  So,  it looks like God is still
looking out for us.  Thank You
God for all that You do for us and
all that You will do.  We are most
surely blessed.  Now to begin my
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 that little
place of my recollection  that I
always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I may have found
a decent title just a few lines back
and now after checking,  I see that
I’ve not used that formation of
the word before,  so here goes…

Grinding

Life’s a pattern
many view
grinding gears to
thereunto,
Like a doorway
time might be
like a grinding
a sight to see.
Many worries
might portray
grinding finding
a dismal day.
With a heartbreak
time moves on
grinding lessons
short and long.
Some might be
but memories
grinding finding
raging seas,
but some memories
might become
grinding scenes
to a brighter sun.

I hope you liked the poem and maybe
even my rambling.  I’m gonna try and
finish this as quick I am able so I can
go out and help Judy.  She just now
went out to start mowing 🙂  I think the
boys went outside with her.  They’re
OK.  Our lawnmower doesn’t throw
any grass.   Yep,  I hear the mower 🙂
I guess that’s about all there is to tell
ya except for what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some poems and
haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,  no extras
and no Christmas related once again.
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 do believe it’s time
for me to begin my search for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a safe and blissful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. OK,
so where is that ornery off switch
trying to hide this time?  Hmmmm,
LOL,  my little Animal figurine has
moved a tad from where it has been
for a long while and the more I look
at it,  I see that it has begun moving.
Yep,  ya still can’t remain still can ya,
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

As A Stream

Timeless waters
can unfold
showing journeys
young and old.
As a stream
that pours desires
hopeful gives
what never tires.
Like a river
streams may go
showing passage
in their flow.
Life is weathered
over time
some may slip
with fall to find.
As perception
is made clear
we might see
our yesteryear.
Then by sight
we’ll understand
how a stream can
help us stand.
For with struggles
streams provide
we grow stronger
through the ride.
Flourishing ways
to become seen
living lifestyles
as a stream.

The Dragonfly

Spring to summer
as colors bloom
the dragonfly
seeks to attune.
It flutters here
and flutters there
as it displays
wondrous flair.
Displaying talents
of fluttering style
showing presence
its little smile.
Often its pathway
is found to be
the smallest sight
for ones to see.
Being well hidden
amongst a leaf,
but not for long,
for staying is brief.
Spring to summer
it flutters away,
but into autumn
continues to play.
Yet as the coldness
of winter appears
the dragonfly seeks
time it endears.
Seeking when winter
bids its goodbye,
this is the life
of the dragonfly.

A Moment Remembered

Memories awaken
in pictures that I view
seasons of a portal
that once was anew.
Yet as flashing minutes
the time disappeared
leaving in a turnstile
what I so endeared.
A moment then of love
that lives in my heart
a time so wonderful,
a magical work of art.
A moment remembered
as seasons passed by
leaving me in sadness
that makes me to cry.
We all may encompass
that similar feeling
time within a threshold
that’s not so appealing.
We need to let them go
but hold to the thoughts
that love did provide
which needs not be lost.
A moment remembered
can help you one day
recalling the good times
that were not so gray.

Beauty In Disguise

Clouds may form
within your view
and turn to orange
a wondrous hue,
but yet the skies
might hold a place
a time to find
a warm embrace.
It may be hidden
for another scene
within the beauty
just like a dream.
For now you see
but only orange
a time and place
to be reborn.
As sky gives life
within a view
it hides in orange
of a sky of blue.
We may perceive
a scented style
pouring flavors
times compile.
A sky of color
might proclaim
the time has come
for pouring rain.
But yet the sight
up in the skies
might be beauty
in disguise.

Stones May Form

Some rocks might be
of a smaller size
of which we kick
when not so wise,
A pebble that’s found
might seem so small
compared to life
that others appall,
but then that rock
might be so stout
it hurts when kicked
to make you shout.
For as it’s compared
to all that’s around
it might look small,
but then astound.
So don’t allow times
that stones may form
to become the hate
an eventful storm.
Find the meanings
within the sight
that may look wrong,
but then be right.
The sights you see
that cause you pain,
might be lessons
and not so insane.
So in midst of life
with a smaller view
stones may form
to enlighten you.

Autumn’s Colors

Driving through time
on an old country road
presents then a style
of a timeless abode.
It seems to go onwards
as miles gather way
with autumn’s colors
of a glorious day.
Scented with pleasures
that eyesight perceives
the colors of beauty
within autumn’s leaves.
They create textures
combined with a sight
that displays moments
that shine in sunlight.
This is just a morsel
of falls tasty treat
seeming so heavenly
with more to accrete.
So many memories
a moment bestows
become our reflections
as found in photos.
Life begins counting
and arranging displays
for ones to uncover
in so many ways
Seen as our heartbeats
times like no others
is what I remember of
autumn’s colors.

Within A Crowd

Lost in perspective
we might not fit in,
but yet look the same
beginning to end.
Time may encompass
our visual sight
with ones not knowing
what’s wrong or right.
The years might pass
leaving many to think
they know you surely,
but it’s just but a wink.
Thinking you’re the same
as times long ago
and not ever realizing
it was all just a show.
We might be flowers
of a journey’s mind
seen for a moment
as just but a rhyme.
Echoing the likenesses
of each you were with,
but it’s only phases
that time did desist.
We are uniqueness
that many never know,
due to their vision
being a little too slow.
Not catching on to
what all you’re endowed
and only seeing flowers
found within a crowd.

Behind Our View

Beach side sands
of an ocean shore
gives many things
ones can explore.
God given days
that times prevail
can become faint
with a slight detail.
So many blessings
of evenings embrace
become as a portion
of life’s smiling face.
An ocean of mind
in scenes by the way
can change its view
from night to day.
When looking ahead
you might not see
the ocean behind
that others perceive.
A gray sky above
may surely proclaim
the existence of God
and His holy name.
Sandcastles built
in this sandy shore
might be right near
a ship and an oar.
It might be a dream
of a sea of blue
that we reminisce
on behind our view.

Tomorrows Days

Fields of emotion
become such a sight
hills in the distance
amidst the daylight.
Life can become
a page from a book
awaiting our eyes
to have a quick look.
Time might pass by
and become shadows
in tomorrows days
the way that it flows.
Look for the sights
that lifetimes display
scented with beauty
in a wondrous array.
For when with hurry
times pass us by
and then tomorrows
may find us to cry.
Sorrow may fill us
as we notice things
the tomorrows of life
and magical scenes.
Then we are wishing
a return for a chance
in yesterdays life
for tomorrow’s glance.
For the hills we see
in wonderful ways
can be the joy
in tomorrows days.

Times Proclaim

The dusty miles
in scenes we see
become the past
in our history.
We might view
the days ahead
as times we find
so much to dread.
With a dusty mile
that times proclaim
which journeys on
with given name,
it might be called
a scenic quest
what all we found
in more or less,
but then it might
be sad to view
all that’s found
in things we do.
Yet the moments
can become
the future seen
of a brighter sun.
Gleaming signs
of brand new days
losing sight
of olden ways.
Allowing wheels
to just roll on
and leave the worst
as then and gone.
For as the times
begin their life
they might end
the passing strife.
Focusing on
a picture frame
might show smiles
that times proclaim.

Haiku
for Sept 7,  2018

Ticking of seconds
is often all we’re hearing
as the minutes pass.

Within illusions
you might discover a path
that can become real.

Changes in people
are often not clearly seen
until it’s to late.

The life of a tree
is shown by many struggles
displayed in its limbs.

Looking to the sky
you might still not see what’s there
due to narrow sight.

Searching within time
you might discover the flaws
that hurry unleashed.

Lost in confusion
ones will often continue
hoping to get out.

Looking down a hole
you might see your reflection
looking back in time.

Doorways to lifetimes
often hold many pathways
for us to travel.

When remembering
our thoughts might be clouded
by essence of time.

A rose of today
might be just a memory
in your tomorrows.

Nothing stays the same,
for as a cloud builds it views,
so do we each one.

The lessons of rocks
are as boulders that have chipped
to become many.

Living in the past
could present many problems
such as existing.

Phases of the moon
are as life cycles we see
that embellish us.

Without our struggles
we would be without lessons
to make us wiser.

Reading dictionaries
will only teach you meanings
and not how they feel.

The sun in summer
brings forth many perceptions
that are good and bad.

Windows of our minds
can become very clouded
as life moves along.

Cherishing items
such as money, cars and stuff
can corrupt your life.

The sight of a star
that so many wish upon
might be a planet.

Focusing on love
and how to make ones love you,
might drive you crazy.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well,  it looks as though summer will soon
be over with up this way.  It’s cooling down
with each passing day.  Although it still has
a little ways to go before winter sets in and
there are many that are hating the thought
of winter,  but not me LOL.  I can’t wait
till I see the first snowflakes fall from the
sky.  To me it’s like magic as it begins its
white cascade down from the sky.  Some
think I’m weird,  but I couldn’t care less 🙂
I love snow and being that we have our
battery powered snow blower and snow
shovel,  it’s not as bad on my back when
clearing it as it was using a regular old
manual snow shovel LOL.  Yeppers I’m
ready for summer to come to an end 🙂
Although I still need to put a bit more
on our heating oil tab before it gets here,
so I guess I’m not quite ready financially
for winter,  but I will be LOL.  We’ve
still got about a 4th of a tank of heating
oil from last winter.  Hmm so,  next topic.
Well,  we didn’t do much this week,  but
Friday was my birthday and we went out
to eat at the Governors Restaurant in
Presque Isle.  It was a good day.  We
ended up bringing home half of our food
to finish off later that day.  We bought
a chocolate pie also at the restaurant to
have for dessert late Friday evening and
it was and is still good hehehe being we
have only eaten half of the pie.  Oooh
dessert tonight and tomorrow.  Not
much else has gone on around here.
Judy’s fixing to head over for a BBQ
at her sister’s house.  I’m staying home.
I really don’t care about being around
a lot of people that I don’t know and
there will be a lot of them,  plus Judy
usually ends up hanging out with her
sisters anyways and I end up being
just there taking pictures.  So,  I think
it’s best for me to stay home.  Judy
always wants to stay for a long time
anyways and I do not enjoy staying
for 5 or 6 hours or more as the case
is often.  She might not be home till
around midnight LOL.  So,  it’s me
and the boys and they’re lying in the
floor beside and behind me.  We had
a heck of time getting Rocky to come
in being he wanted to go for a ride,
but I went and got a squeaky toy
and squeaked it a couple of times
and he came running hahaha.  He
loves the squeaky toys.  LOL life in
the fast lane.  I wish I had some of
my family up here to visit,  but it is
what it is.  I just now called VIP to
see how much an oil and spark plug
change would cost.  I’m gonna get
that done hopefully this week.  I
know the spark plugs have gotta be
getting worn after 9 years hehehe.
If it cost too much,  I’ll get 1 done
and then the other next month,  but
hopefully it won’t cost too much.
So,  what else has gone on here at
The Pearce’s Place?  Well,  to be
honest,  it’s quite boring,  especially
today,  but that’s OK.  I’ll do a
little poetry writing today to put
in pictures 🙂  It doesn’t look like
VIP is going to call me back today,
but they are opened till 6:30 PM.
If they don’t then I’ll get a hold
of them next week sometime.  It’ll
get done.  I just called them again
and he said he’s been busy with
customers,  but he’ll get on it 🙂
and call me back with the price.
I reckon that’s about all from this
part of the world.  God still has
His mighty hands protecting us as
much as He sees necessary,  being
we all need to face reality as there
are many things we must endure
to give us growth.  If we were not
to of ever suffered,  then we would
of never grown.  I guess 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 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 may of found a decent
title just a few lines back and now
after checking I see that it hasn’t
been used yet,  so used it shall be.
Here goes…

Necessary

The things we do
and things we see
might be lessons
for you and me.
We might fall flat
onto our faces
with the moments
time embraces.
There are lessons
to be displayed
in the mistakes
of which we made.
Yet there are times
that God will send
protection from
a gruesome end.
But He knows that
you must find
lessons from some
points in time.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even my rambling 🙂
I know,  I do tend to ramble,  don’t I,
but if I didn’t you wouldn’t have all of
my gobbledygook to read and keep you
entertained LOL.  Though I do believe
that there is nothing more to tell you
other than what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,  but
no extras or Christmas related.  I also
wrote 22 more haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find
1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
Now I reckon it’s time for me to begin
my search for that hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a
most wonderful weekend or what all
that’s left of it and a safe labor day
as well a truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  OK,  so where can that off
switch be trying to hide the time LOL?
I use the term trying loosely hehehe.
Hmm,  I think I see a bit of movement
behind my aspirin bottle.  Yep.  there
ya are once again.  It seems that you
would learn where is not a good place
to hide after being found there more
than a couple of times,  wouldn’t you?
After all of this time, you’d think you
would learn to stay still Hahahahaha.
I could even hear the bottle rattling 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Just Like Flowers

We’re often judged
by life visually
and not how we are,
but what they see.
Becoming set in
a judgmental soil
as ones continue
acting so royal.
We are connected
in life’s daily game
just like flowers.
that moments attain.
Look a bit deeper
and see beyond sight,
find how they are
in a clearer light,
Often long hair
or tattoos ones have
make ones to judge
and then walk on past.
Look for the person
and not for the flair
for just like flowers
we need ones to care.

Golden Field

Journeys of minutes,
journeys of miles
take on perspective
that can give a smile.
Sorted emotions
of a journey of mind
gives a golden field
a respectable time.
Scenes we remember
that time took away,
might be the difference
we wish for today.
A simple golden trail
in a heartbeat of life
could bring peaceful
to end your strife.
We all have mindsets
that many never see
for they are within us
and stay lock and key.
So unlock that doorway
and allow ones to know
the person within you
and how that you glow.
Though oh so many
might laugh real hard
at what all they see
with no disregard.
Yet still there are many
that give love to yield
as they get to know
your inner golden field.

Place Of Peace

Days of wonder
with scented scenes
bring in vision
so many things.
Places remembered
that now are gone
might come to life
as you look on.
They might be life
of another style
a scented aroma
a wonderful while.
A place of peace
in a simple scene
might be a barn
in grasses of green.
We might one day
find a lost place
as a timeless past
with a smiling face.
Look on beyond it
and open the door
find the connections
to so much more.
Sometimes our eyes
see only some views
scenes we believe
and not what’s true.
Allow the minutes
to give you release,
God given moments
in a place of peace.

Cattle Grazing

Traveling down roads
you might perceive
the sight of some cattle
that times interweave.
Grazing in the days
as they peacefully stand
eating and enjoying
the food of the land.
Then for a moment
you might find the day
watching interacting
as peaceful as hay.
Life can be blissful
if you’ll just let it be
and allow the sights
to be life’s chemistry.
Filled with the goodness
of love and true life
and not so corrupted
with hate and strife.
Watch as a moment
can become as love
sent down from heaven
as wings of a dove.
While cattle stand still
and graze in the grass
life begins a journey
of future and past.
Yes life can become
as a time so amazing
just from the sight of
a few cattle grazing.

Standing On The Dock

Some days we may
just trudge along
standing on the dock
just singing a song.
So many days though
we might not find
peaceful at heart
a moment in time.
Standing on the dock
of windswept days
can procure lifestyles
of withered ways.
Don’t allow time
to just pass you by
as geese in flight
in the true blue sky.
Let your mind soar
and find better sight,
such as an ocean
or a lighthouse light.
Look passed sadness,
don’t focus on pain.
Find all the blessings
that life can attain.
Some might be hidden
in a moment or style
that needs uncovered
to find you a smile.
Allow your emotions
to see life unlock
and display the beauty
standing on the dock.

Simple Visions

A passing breeze
can bring to mind
a special place
and point in time.
Children playing
mid December
simple visions
that I remember.
The snow of white
that time displays
of those blessings
wondrous ways.
My heart seeks
those times again
of simple visions
way back when.
Yes we all have
times recalled
simple visions
the age of auld.
Time continues
with its counting
adding details
life’s surmounting.
Through it all
we may remember
life and times of
sweet December.
They still live
in our memories
with simple visions
mindful seas.

Seabirds

Legends of seabirds
flapping in the breeze
brings forth the echoes
of summertime seas.
Yet they’re not fables,
but of then pure truth
a seabird of nature
that time gives to you.
It might be a moment
or a place you recall
found in your memories
of summer to fall.
It might be a blessing
so sweet and so pure
that one day glistened
with a wondrous allure.
I can now remember
a place and a time
that’s found in pictures
of scenes so divine.
The ocean’s waves roar
became as a dream,
a time my wife and I
recorded each scene.
The pictures and videos
that now are displayed
became as a story
for a moment to wade.
For I can still remember
the crashing of waves
joined by some seabirds
in the so distant days.

Life’s Survival

As summers pass
they leave a void
a time and place
you once enjoyed.
A walk on the beach
or riding a horse
turns into shadows
running their course.
Synched with days
that brought a smile
within life’s survival
that minutes compile.
A beach side scene
or a distant view
becomes as an echo
that lives within you.
Time turns to stories
that turn into pages
written in our minds
of so distant ages.
Just like a glimmer
that never goes out
our life’s survival
keeps running about.
Bringing into view
what minutes surmise
scented with life
we saw with our eyes.
For as time passes
with each arrival
our memories help
with life’s survival.

Different Colors

Having of wealth
and many things
makes none better
than guitar strings.
Strumming notes
to make your place
often gives only
a disheartened face.
The poor are people
the same as us
so don’t act better
in front of the bus.
Sometimes life
will throw us a foul
making some grimace
and others to growl.
The wealth of life
should not be cash,
but that of love
of every class.
We all have things
that no one knows
problems hidden
filled with woes.
Different lifestyles
different hues
walking each day
to win or lose.
So don’t be hateful
to all the others,
even if they are
different colors.

Flavors Of Style

Limbs of a journey
are better to view
when you are seeking
what that is true.
Not letting hopeful
to fill with despair
as time passes you
here unto there.
We are as flavors
that many will see
tasted by eyesight
a moment’s degree.
Though deceptions
might be of words
while many gossip
as busy little birds.
Sometimes scenes
we’re seen within
are just a moment
of remember when.
The past is portrayed
as an active view
that many think of
as now so true.
Don’t allow lies
to become your life
creating enemies
to fill you with strife.
Seek for the beauty
of life and a smile
found deep within us
as flavors of style.

Haiku
for Sept 1,  2018

Amidst a morning
you might surely discover
a new day to rise.

While in a doorway
we might perceive much better
within other doors.

The life of a breath
begins with ones breathing in
and then exhaling.

In search of true love
you might find a few liars,
but true love exists.

The essence of time
is found within the seconds
that many don’t count.

Looking up above
you might see a few rainbows
without any rain.

Challenges of life
are often within our eyes,
for we are able.

Right after the rain
the wait begins for sunshine
for roses to grow.

Yesterday is life
that we might not clearly see
until the time’s right.

As we find windows
into what we are wanting
our needs get confused.

Filling up a void
with our negativity
can still leave a void.

Chances for a rose
are the same as a tulip,
they both need sunshine.

Believing in truth
allows lies to intervene
if you’re not careful.

A page of our life
might of been dog-eared by you
and you never knew.

The breath of today
can become a stifled moment
that we may of caused.

Links to our lifestyles
are often found in others
that were watching us.

Change is indifferent
when it’s done for another
and not for yourself.

The sight of lightning
makes many wait for thunder
to complete its course.

Seen as a doormat
some will wipe their feet on you
thinking they’re better.

History of time
has many in confusion,
for no one is sure.

The links to a fence
are stronger when connected
than of lonely links.

Within a shadow
Satan shows what fears you most
which might be yourself.

What Else

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.

Awaiting Its Arrival

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.

Aug 11,  2018

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

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.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a fairly peaceful week these
passing days.  Not much has gone on.
Judy’s coffee maker died and so we
ordered her a new one.  She’s gotta
have her coffee ya know 🙂  I ordered
a side chute for our lawnmower so it
can go bag less.  I haven’t been using
the bag on the back of it.  I’ve been
just stopping ever so often to clean
out the grass that has collected under
it.  LOL Not to worry.  It’s a battery
operated lawnmower and when I let
go of the safety lever,  it turns off :).
I have to push and hold the button
on the side and then grab the handle
which is the safety on before it will
operate.  Anyways,  the side chute
should be here tomorrow.  Of course
our landlord mowed our lawn for us
the other day,  but there are times
that it gets away from him and the
grass is always growing,  of course
not in the wintertime,  which then
I break out our battery operated
snow blower and snow shovel on
the snowy days.  Our landlord has
our driveway plowed,  but it’s my
job to do around our car and steps
as well as any other area that needs
done.  We manage 🙂   It has been
a little warm the passed few weeks,
but I am sure it’s nothing compared
to temperatures down south LOL.
Today’s high is 78 Degrees which
is not bad,  mostly because we’ve
got an air conditioner hehehehehe.
This week is supposed to be in the
low to mid 80’s.  Still thankfully
we have our air conditioner,  being
I can’t handle too much over 75 F
degrees.  I am very hot natured and
have heat strokes very easily.  My
old body has undergone a lot of
health issues and surgeries,  but
before all of that I used to be able
to handle it a little warmer without
passing out LOL.  I was born and
raised in Texas ya know hehehehe.
Next topic.  I have finished all of
the 160 poetry pictures needed for
book 8 now and so now I need to
begin work on getting the book
all together and published.  I’ve
already written 10 poetry pictures
for book 9 LOL.   Writing and
photography help me to find a
bit of peace through my many
aches and pains that my health
provides.  I’ve been blessed with
a gift that helps me deal with all
that life throws at me.  So,  what
else is there in the Pearce’s news?
Well,  Benny and Rocky are doing
well.  Rocky is still as ornery as
always.  He still does stuff that he
knows he’s not supposed to do 🙂
He’ll mess up the bed and throw
the pillows off and when I come
in the room he’ll jump off quickly
and try to act like nothing happened.
Yes he does other stuff,  but hehehe
we won’t go there.  All in all we’ve
got some good boys.  They keep us
entertained for sure.  Judy and I
have begun using the treadmill as
often as able.  Of course there are
days that my feet and legs will
not let me use it,  but I give it go
as often as possible.  Judy is the
same.  God has blessed me with
a beautiful loving wife and some
little boys/dogs that give us smiles
when sadness is upon us.  Thank
You God for our families and the
love that comes from them and
our many friends that are in many
ways like family.  Now I believe
it is time for me to begin my little
venture back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a
good word or phrase that I can
use for the 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 have found a decent
title just a few lines back and it
looks as though I haven’t used it
as of yet,  so used it shall be today.
Here goes…

Like Family

Some friends might
be more to view,
for they might be
real close to you.
Even with distance
and many a mile
a friend might be
your reason to smile.
They become more
than just a friend
as time moves on
from end to end.
Seasons display
the pages that turn
more like family
life to discern.
Thank Lord God
for ones so true
that came one day
and truly loved you.
For there are ones
for you and me
that God intended
like family.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope that you
liked the poem and maybe even my
rambling hehehe.  I have so many
friends that are so much more than
just friends,  for I consider them
as my brothers and sisters.  I’m sure
you have a few as well.  Sometimes
it’s them,  not your actual family
that are there to help in a crisis 🙂
Well,  Benny is lying on the bed
and Rocky (odd as it may seem)
is lying in the floor just outside of
our computer room.  So I guess
that’s about all from our neck of
the woods.  Now it must be time
for me to tell you what I tell you
every week and that is I wrote
some more poems and haiku 🙂
Yeppers,  10 more poems with 2
of them a bit Christmassy.  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 searching
for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a most
wonderful blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now,  where can that
ornery off switch be attempting to
hide this time?  Hmmmmmmmm!
Where oh where are ya hiding at?
LOL Oh,  I see ya.  Hiding in one
of your old spots huh.  Behind my
K2 meter hehehe.  Did ya sense
any ghost?   Hehehehe BOOOOO.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Seaside Fun

When time found ways
of filling the void
with waves of life
that I truly enjoyed
it brought me sights
of a beach side view
found right beside
the sea of blue.
When it all came alive
in essence of style
it brought to me
a never ending smile,
for as I recall
those magical days
it gives me a smile
just like the waves.
When now so far away
as a distant memory
I can still remember
the deep blue sea.
It’s just like a ghost
of a magical hue
that displays life
the greatest to view.
When just but a memoir
and just but a time
it still lives as echoes
deep within my mind.
Even when it was over
and the days were done
I can still remember
that seaside fun.

So Timeless

This time remembered,
this wonderful view
is a creation of God’s
with a magical hue.
It’s winter’s recital
as an epic appearance
found within snowflakes
as a timeless romance.
So timeless remembered
as a page from a book
a winter white moment
gives life another look.
Scented as Christmas
with flavors in the air
found as so timeless
with God’s love and care.
Written as a journal
that recalls every sight
the pictures we view
show winters of white.
Textured as cotton
with a cold winter’s flow
so timeless is seen
that Christmastime snow.
It brings alive heartbeats
as love lives inside
while echoes of the time
take a memory ride.
Scenes become surreal
as a snow driven mile
while seeming so timeless
these moments compile.

Signs Of Winter

Spring came knocking
on wintertime’s door
seeking to make changes
on the old earthly floor.
Snow still was standing
within perfect view
as the signs of winter
soon bid their adieu.
But yet it still struggled
to hold fast to the sights
displayed in daytime
and also the nights.
Just like a good painting
with time in compare
streaked by a painter
with a wonderful flair.
Scented with the aroma
of a Christmas dream,
painted with the colors
of all that you’ve seen.
Some sort of brownish
and layered in white
while some escalated
to a dreamer’s delight.
Springtime brings colors
that are soon to unfold
in flowers that bloom
and sweet fields of gold.
A home in the scene
might also stand true
as the signs of winter
soon fade out of view.

Starlight Mermaid

I have imagined
a dream to set sail
such as a mermaid
with a long fishy tail.
Jumping up high
to reach for the stars
with water splashing
on Venus and Mars.
This is so magical
as it seems so alive
a starlight mermaid
of a wondrous size.
Seen as a rocket
as she reaches out
seeking for a star
and all it’s about.
Not understanding
how it stays in place
this star that she saw
with a twinkling face.
She saw the stars
as a nightly cascade
this I imagined
a starlight mermaid.

Angel Of Love

Life might seem
to be so cruel
that you’ve been
the daily fool.
Time can heal
the dismal days
that life displayed
in sordid ways.
An angel might
be there right now
to give you peace
to then endow.
An angel of love
might surely be
a friend in life
that you can see.
One may disguise
their smiling face
as that of friends
with true embrace.
So know so true
from up above
a friend might be
an angel of love.

Winter Hills

Those memories
of distant hills
now live on
as winter’s thrills.
Like an ocean
of white details
the snow glistens
time that sails.
Seen so heavenly
time moves on
winter hills then
there and gone.
God given scenes
of times displayed
as life goes on
with time to wade.
As mesmerizing
scenic sites
all come to life
in days and nights,
the winter hills
become a view
as a blessing
for me and you.
Times unbounded
or so it seems
those winter hills
of snowy scenes.
They give way
as God fulfills
more to life
than winter hills.

Autumn Glimmers

Just like a dream
that once came true
those autumn leaves
come into view.
Glimmering scenes
of orange and gold
begin their sights
as they unfold.
Found as a blessing
a shimmering sight
they come in view
as they take flight.
As but a moment
that time prevails
autumn glimmers
so many details.
Seeming as magic
a moment displayed
they fall to earth
a floating cascade.
Giving a welcome
to winters of time
they all give way
in their own design.
Pictures portraying
their colorful hues
tinted with seconds
the season accrues.
Painting the ground
to sort of shimmer
the colors left over
as autumn glimmers.

Storms Within

Skies within us
can change into rain
as we encounter
moments of pain.
Scenes within us
might not be clear
as we are viewing
a time’s yesteryear.
So many journeys
might become gray
as storms within us
from day after day.
Look on beyond
the gathering view
and find then a gaze
much better in you.
Allow your dreams
to become alive
just for a moment
to help you survive.
Don’t let others
to steal your joy.
Hold on tightly
to the real McCoy.
Those storms within
can create a show
as a time of life
of a great rainbow.
Let God to thrive
in time and again
as you encounter
your storms within.

creating moments
of time and to date.
Maybe as a wave
that comes into view
or a ship sailing
in waters of blue.
We create minutes
with seconds within
as a deep ocean
does time and again.
We are as waves
that roll onto shore
creating patterns
for us to explore.
Life is an ocean
with depths so deep
filled full of mystery
for us then to reap.
Asking the questions
that bring into view
choices with voices
for us to accrue.
Time is a doorway
to pathways to go
filled full of wonders
that moments bestow.
Flow as the ocean
and seek for a gaze
found as a story
for we are as waves.

Enjoy Life

Now’s just a moment,
for it will be gone
leaving in its shadow
how time moves along.
Don’t let the sad times
to become all you see,
for now’s but a moment
in life’s history.
Look passed sadness
and find you a while,
a time to be thankful
and then give a smile.
So enjoy life now
as best that you can
and choose to be happy
within this time span.
Find in a moment
a joyful sunrise
or a time in evening
with stars in the skies.
Remember a moment
in a boat on a lake
taking off quickly
and leaving a wake.
Take a recollection
of summers of then
and find the blessings
that did then begin.
Lose all the sadness
that cuts like a knife
and find you a moment
to then enjoy life.

Haiku
for July 28,  2018

Above a dreamland
there can be stars that hover
and dance above you.

Sight can be a lie
for truth lives in a moment
that others can see.

Syncing your thinking
with the thoughts of many others
does not mean you’re right.

The charge of a bull
is not for the red it sees,
but for the movement.

Watching flowers bloom
can become a boring job
for it takes patience.

Loss of a minute
does not mean the day is gone,
but many will cry.

Throughout history
time displays many pathways
filled full of lessons.

Links to survival
are found deep within ourselves
as a will to live.

Soaking up sunshine
on a cloudy summers day
can still give sunburns.

Holding onto time
that has passed on from right now,
can become baggage.

Showering with hate
can soak into your heartbeat
and tarnish your soul.

Today is soon passed
as minutes become hours
and then memories.

Losing track of time
can often move you ahead
or behind in life.

Grasses of summer
speak volumes to lawnmowers
such as who’ll mow me.

A storm of anger
can become as lighting bolts
that strike out madly.

Scenes we remember
might become teachers of life
or bad memories.

Lost in a snowstorm
one might seem to be helpless,
but footprints can save.

Walking in darkness
leaves a chance for hitting walls,
so use a good light.

God provides lessons
through actions we were allowed
to be as teachers.

Looking to Heaven
can give you great peace of mind,
but prayer is better.

Senseless persuasions
might put you in a real bad place
if you allow it.

Through now and what’s gone
the future holds many doors
with chances in life.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another wild week around here.
Rocky got ill and wouldn’t eat and he had
gotten really weak.  We called the vet and
made an appointment for 10 AM Friday
morning,  but Thursday night he began to
have tremors.  We covered him up with a
blanket and just prayed all night that he
would survive.  Weird enough by morning
he was back to his old self.  We still took
him to the vet and had him checked out.
She said his cholesterol was a little high
but then he is a chunky monkey hehehe.
She said his proteins were a bit low also,
but gave us some meds to help him.  He
is doing much better now.  Judy is giving
him his pills at this moment or at least
one of them.  I had to stop and give him
the one he doesn’t like.  I mixed it in a
little canned food and gave it to him. He
didn’t notice it and ate the pill hehehehe.
Anyways,  he’s doing great.  I’m still doing
my walks.  Yesterday (Saturday) I walked
about 7 miles.  I walked to the County
office in New Limerick and the grave site
where Judy’s parents are buried and I
took some pictures.  I had to stop off at
Cameron’s Market on the way home to
get me some bottled water.  My soda ran
out.  Boy I was one tired camper when
I got home.  LOL Judy was still asleep.
I had left out early in the morning.  I just
fell into bed with my last burst of energy.
That was the furthest that I have walked
since I began walking again.  I might not
walk that far again for a little while LOL.
My legs and feet are very sore.  I might
though walk to Cameron’s Market being
it’s only a mile and a half away.  LOL
the ladies that were working that day
said,  “do we need to call someone to
come and pick you up.  You look like
you’re about done”.  I said no,  I’ll
trudge on and force myself to make it.
They could see that I was exhausted 🙂
But I was not going to give up hehehe
and I prevailed.  I have been taking
pictures while on my walks and I have
tons of great photos.  I’ll add a few in
my stationery.  Yep,  this passed week
has been one to remember.  Judy had
craft night last night and she made a
beautiful wreath and a LOL a little
voodoo doll.  Hahaha I asked her was
that supposed to be me.  She said nah,
but then I noticed pins in the neck and
said LOL so that’s why my neck hurts.
LOL it’s a little Christmassy looking
voodoo doll.  It’s red and white striped.
She said she was just messing around.
Anyways,  we had a nice evening when
she got home.  We watched TV together
I read her the last of my poems that I
wrote while she was gone.  I have all
of the 160 poetry pictures done for my
book 8 and now I just need to find
a good cover picture and last page and
then start creating a PDF of it.  That
is one of the biggest headaches LOL.
So it looks like God is still watching
over us.  He healed Rocky,   We were
afraid by the way he was looking and
all that he would be dead by morning,
but he was back to his old self.  Thank
You God.  Life is good.  Judy and I
are doing well.  Judy has begin using
the treadmill again.  I am thankful for
that being I want her around for as
long as I can keep her and walking
is a good way to keep healthy.  We
are both trying to lose some weight.
Thank You God for putting her and
I together and giving us the blessings
of love.  Now I believe it is time for
me to be looking back on all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that will work 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 of found a fairly decent title just
a few lines back 🙂 and it looks like I
have not used it yet,  so used it shall
be hehehe.  Here goes…

Blessings Of Love

Life is a mystery
that seasons procure
brought to us daily
as a mystery tour.
Blessings of love
are the greatest to be
found in a threshold
that’s so heavenly.
Scented with passion
and weathered in time
true love can create
the greatest design.
Time is a doorway
that many walk through
seeking for a taste
of a lovingly view.
Look for the moments
that come from above
found as the sweetest
blessings of love.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem.
I also hope you enjoyed my rambling 🙂
I never know what I’m gonna say until
I begin writing.  Anyways,  I hope I kept
you entertained hehehe.  I don’t think
there is anything else to tell you other
than what I tell you every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems with 1 extra but
no Christmas poems this week.  I also
wrote 22 more haiku for all the haiku
lovers our there.  I hope you can find
1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
With that said I guess I need to begin
my search for that hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a
most joyous and blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  OK now,  Where can that ornery
off switch be trying to hide this week?
Hmm,  Now that is one of the dumbest
places to hide hehehe,  behind my glass
of orange juice.  You do know that I
am drinking that and must pick the
glass up to do so,  don’t you Hahaha.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Then And Passed

Loved ones pass
to other realms
choices they chose
their daily helms.
Yet the graves
of times we see
don’t have place
as lock and key.
For the pathways
can only hold
the empty bodies
that time has told.
Then and passed
beneath the lawn
allows the spirits
to carry on.
We will one day
be shadows cast
spirits living
then and passed.

Tracks To Home

Miles of a journey
might be all we see
as we travel around
throughout history.
So many pathways
are laid in place
as memories tracks
of a smiling face.
The seasons glow
inside of our minds
as tracks to home
create their designs.
Remembering scenes
that then were gray,
but now remembered
a much better day.
Our childhood stage
might seem so glum
when at the moment
of a season’s sun.
Those tracks begin
a certain quest
a memorized time
you saw as the best.
Yet many miles
might surely show
that now and today
is the best to know.
Look for the beauty
to then carry on
as you then journey
the tracks to home.

Time Unites

Simple moments
fall in place
then uniting
face to face.
Life becomes as
waters flow,
as time unites
what all we know.
Minutes prosper
bringing gain
some as sunshine
some as rain.
Just like a river
flowing true
time unites
both me and you.
We might only
see a time,
a place in life
within our mind.
Yet the journey
flows at best
with its chosen
daily quest.
Some as droplets
clouds of rain
falling on our
windowpane.
Yet some others
take on flights
joined together
time unites.

Life Discreet

Looking beyond
a distant view
clouds might show
a sky of blue.
A field of green
might lay in place
so discreetly
as Heaven’s lace.
The twine of time
is knitted in
Earth and sky
as times transcend.
The sleeping beauty
awakens peace
that gives our eyes
a great increase.
Like a threshold
into a scene
the time displays
a wondrous dream.
Becoming life
of distant stage
set in motion
age to age.
Seeming magical
the times procure
connected styles
of times allure.
Sometimes hidden
beneath our feet
the Earth displays
true life discreet.

Up A Path

With a friend
in life’s design
up a path
is great to find.
Walking closely
friends might be
up a path
through history.
Just as shadows
we might gaze
up and path
of distant days.
Knowing truly
that they’re there
up a path
a friend to share.
Walking with you,
but faraway
up a path
from day to day.
A true friend
you’ll always find
up a path
with you in mind.
Holding true
to always be
up a path
of destiny.
Friendship grown
that surely last
found through time
and up a path.

Threaded Perception

Weaved as a spider
detailed as the wind
life is found blowing
for times to transcend.
Seeming as a moment
that time looks away
threaded perception
displays a new day.
Scented with grasses
swaying in the breeze
right near the essence
of flowers and trees.
Black Eye Susies
in midst of the sight
threaded as minutes
in the bright sunlight.
Life begins drawing
its very own view
threaded perception
from old to anew.
We might not see it
as times romance
the summertime scene
life’s song and dance.
Just like a story
in a book of a day
found never ending
in a magical way.
Displayed as a portal
found as perfection
this is a moment’s
threaded perception.

Rainbow Light

Within the sky
you might see
a sky of light
so colorfully.
Bright as day
a certain treat
of rainbow light
for eyes to eat.
With a display
of scenic style
the rainbow light
provides a smile.
With living color
seen way up high
it finds a home
within the sky.
Your eyes enjoy
the tasty sight,
a scene so sweet
as rainbow light.

Water And Rocks

Scenes we discover
might only be time
found as a moment
that minutes unwind.
Water and rocks
of a lifetime of action
will often display
ones truth and passion.
Pouring just like water
over rocks of style
carrying ventures
times to compile.
Ends and beginnings
can connect every day
as that of a puzzle
that time hides away.
While only allowing
the sights and sounds,
but not allowing touch
as a moment abounds.
Water and rocks
are a pattern in mind
as a magical scene
that you may just find.
It might be poetic
as a passing cloud
or as water pouring
how it is allowed.
The mind can uncover
what a moment unlocks
while looking over
the water and rocks.

Standing Alone

When life finds doors
they might appear
to be of a doorway
of ones not sincere.
We might even notice
a window type view
that looks just the same
as me and of you.
We might stand alone
as the days go by
wishing to walk away
or wishing to fly.
Yet as the doorways
become better seen
we might find a time
better than anything.
Such as a friendship,
waters of time
displayed as windows,
heartbeats to find.
Time is but a journey
to another place
with many searching
for a true embrace.
Life might seem cruel
as it opens its doors
showing but only
the ceilings and floors.
Yet there can be joy
found right at home
at peace with yourself
while standing alone.

Berries

We are as berries
that time unveils
some with so many
different details.
We might be seen
as a ongoing style
displaying always
what seems as a smile.
Many may think
the smiles are true,
but they are hiding
frowns within you.
We all have times
that sadness prevails
making us struggle
with daily details.
Yet as each morning
comes into sight
we’ve got a chance
to seek to delight.
Finding the blessings
in all that we see
scented of Heaven
and given for free.
We are as berries
on a daily crusade
to be of ourselves
and how we’re made.
Be who you are
in the daily quest
berries of lifestyles
of your very best.

Within The Wind

Running free
as time will flow
life creates
someplace to go.
Within the wind
of daily sights
time is counted
days and nights.
Grasses green
of daily choice
within the wind
there is a voice.
It speaks loudly
sometimes silent
of each moment’s
true intent.
As our footsteps
seek designs
within the wind
has many finds.
For as shadows
fair and true
within the wind
gives us a view.
A scenic style
that life parades
finds a place
within the days.
These are times
that never end
found as memoirs
within the wind.

Haiku
for July 21,  2018

Trailing through seconds
the minutes might look too long,
but they’re just seconds.

Life is just a time
that we perceive in our sight
that some see differently.

Searching for true love
could leave you empty handed,
for it will find you.

Lost in illusions
you might find many hopefuls
that are only lies.

Today marks a spot
that the future might recall,
but not too clearly.

Often our shadows
are better at being us,
but they are not true.

Winter brings changes
that summer and fall will see
as they dissipate.

Finding a snowflake
within wintertime’s design
brings smiles of Christmas.

Left over nightmares
can become as many dreams
as lessons are learned.

Seeking for sunshine
in a real cloudy moment
might only show rain.

Seasons of turnstiles
will open and close with time
exposing some sights.

In search of the truth
you might find many liars
that know of the truth.

A page out of life
can be blank and without words
filled with emotions.

Tomorrow is paved,
for today is as pavement
through our yesterdays.

Losing to the wind
does not mean you’ve lost the fight,
for life continues.

When a flower blooms
it gives way for its beauty
and then it withers.

Thinking to harshly
can make you a sad person,
as people will leave.

Perception of love
is often very confused
with an attraction.

Throughout our childhood
we might often be misled,
but find out later.

Beyond emotions
is a place of confusion
that causes ones grief.

While time ticks along
the moments show their changes
that we may not see.

Various people
become hooked on who they are
and see no others.

But Just Where

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a great week this passed week.
Our car is repaired and we brought her
home Tuesday.  She looks just like new.
Parent’s Body Shop did a great job on
our car.  My new XP laptop arrived on
Tuesday the same day our car was done.
It’s a Dell laptop.  The same brand as my
XP Pro PC.  Anyways,  the laptop works
great.  It does everything that I need it
for.  The battery life is only a few hours,
but if needed I can take the plug in to
the porch and plug it in,  but 2 hours is
pretty good when browsing Facebook 🙂
So,  next topic.  The weather has been
fairly nice.  Right now it’s 75 F degrees
which is the high for today.  Of course
tomorrow is supposed to be a little bit
warmer,  but we’ll survive with our little
portable air conditioner hehehe.  When
we’re on the porch I have a water-cooled
fan that I can use on the warmer days
to keep us cool.  Yeppers,  we’re all
set for summer and winter.  I’ve been
doing walks every day around 11 PM
on the county road that runs in front
of our house.  I go up one way one day
and the other the next.  I switch off so
to not to get so bored and I have also
begun going further each day or at least
giving it a go LOL.  The last 2 days this
week I only walked about half of the
distance I did before,  but tomorrow I
will begin my longer walks again.  I am
trying to walk off some of this weight
and it seems to be working as well as
making my asthma to not be so bad
with my regulated breathing while I’m
walking.  I haven’t had an asthma attack
since I have begun this.  So,  something’s
working 🙂  Anyways,  we’re doing well.
We’ve begun taking the boys on field
trips out in the field that’s in front of
our house or in back.  It’s really how
you look at it hehehe.  Our neighbor
mowed our lawn for us today,  so that’s
one thing I do not have to do at least
for a few days unless he mows it again,
but he did not use the weed eater,  so
I will have to get out maybe tomorrow
and do a little weed eating.  It could be
worse ya know hehehe.  Judy’s taking
a little nap right now.  We didn’t sleep
well last night due to our dog Rocky
peeing on the bed and us having to do
a lot of cleaning on the mattress and
flipping it,  then doing laundry to wash
the sheets.  So neither of us got much
sleep and Rocky is no longer allowed
on the bed.  I know what happened,
but it still doesn’t make it OK.  He
was on the bed fixing to play with our
pillows and I caught him and I think
I scared him because that is where the
pee was.  He didn’t pee on the pillows,
but just where he was standing fixing
to begin playing with the pillows LOL.
Anyways,  it’s all cleaned up now,  but
as I said :),  he is no longer allowed
on the bed.  He hopped up to see Judy
and I swatted him and said down.  He
knows he messed up hehehe.  For the
remainder,  Benny is not allowed on
the bed either.  That makes the second
time that Rocky has made that error.
Anyways,  life goes on 🙂  Not much
else going on.  I take pictures on my
daily walks,  so I’ve got a ton of pictures
to put in my stationery as well as a
few to use for poetry pictures.  God is
still watching over us and taking good
care of us.  I’m sure we’ve got many
angels watching over us as well.  Life
is good even with many aches and pains
that we must deal with.  Thank You
God for taking care of us and always
protecting us.  Now I believe 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.  So it’s away I go,
to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I may have found a
fairly 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 today.  Here goes…

But Just Where

Passing ventures
become memoirs
of life and times
of shooting stars.
Time’s are counted
now and then
where we’re going,
where we’ve been.
But just where
is the daily door
that has within it
a little bit more?
It might be hidden
within the view
the times we want
to then come true.
But just where
is the passing scene
that comes alive
inside a dream?
It might just be
but a time away
that’s just waiting
for a better day.
It could be sights
of some fresh air,
yet we are seeking
but just where.

There ya go.  Yes I know,  it might be a
little confusing,  but that’s OK.  Maybe
it will make ya think hehehe.  Anyways,
I hope you enjoyed it and maybe even
enjoyed my rambling hehehe.  I have
been having to keep telling Rocky that
he is not to jump on the bed.  He seems
to have a bad memory LOL.  Benny can
remember it well and he is right behind
me lying in the floor.  Hopefully it will
finally sink into Rocky’s thick skull that
he is not allowed on the bed anymore.
LOL OK enough about that.  I don’t
think there is much else to tell you other
than what I tell you every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems,  but no extras and
no Christmas poems this 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 with that said,  I reckon it’s time
for me to begin my searching for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now,  where is that ornery off

Summer Stroll

A book of life
has many pages
a summer stroll
of many ages.
Just like a time
we remember well
a special time
in summer’s well.
The rope of life
is extended down
a summer stroll
for a look around.
A Heavenly sight
that comes in view
as a book of life
in morning’s dew.
We might not see
the smallest sight
that might be
on left and right,
but if we search
beyond each phase
we might see
some better days.
A summer stroll
can come alive
as the smallest
finds our eyes.
God’s own beauty
can then unfold
looking closely
a summer stroll.

Season’s Sun

Light of an evening
disperses its view
sight of a moment
from old to anew.
A wintertime scene
becomes as a stage
found as a journal
of page after page.
Written perception
in an essence of style
as the season’s sun
gives me a big smile.
Seeming as magic
it displays a sight
as a glimmer of love
in its bright sunlight.
I look real closely
and see a reflection
within season’s sun
in my own perception.
It might be a scene
that I’ve seen before,
but this is the best
that I truly adore.
It is but a journey
that time then instills
as flavors of winter
on distant times hills.
My heart’s in rhythm
as a beating drum
at the sight I see
within season’s sun.

Take A Breath

When in a hurry
you might fall prey
to worries of life
in a troublesome way.
Trying to hurry
what time cannot see
might become life
that’s not so happily.
So often we’re needing
to stop for a while
and breathe in a sight
for time to compile.
Allow yet a moment
to become as gold,
as a time you recall
and story you’ve told.
So now take a breath
and breathe in a view
the sights that you see
from old to anew.
Don’t let the views
to become as a phase
as times remembered
in ordinary ways.
Breathe in the beauty
of a moment in time
and let it to blossom
as Heaven sent wine.
Don’t let the minutes
to fill you with strife,
so take a breath now
and enjoy your life.

Sometimes Reminds

In life and perception
we might then recall
a time that reminds us
of a time frame so tall.
Standing as an echo
repeating in our view
as sometimes reminds
of a time thereunto.
Often as a glimmer
we remember so well
such as the tiny things
of a moment’s detail.
It might be a scene
that you pass every day
or a moment in time
that just slipped away.
It’s then the shadows
begin to remind
and display in a memoir
a momentous time.
A scene as a dream
that you now remember
as the seconds pass by
to burn as an ember.
As sometimes reminds
of a distant array
such as a place you saw
on one sunny day.
It is then as life’s echoes
that repeat special times
such as places in life
that sometimes reminds.

Sands Of Life

Footsteps made
and gathered style
can remember
a moment’s smile.
A time and place
that hearts record
in sands of life
of our sweet Lord.
The seasons pass
leaving in place
a point in time
of a smiling face.
Just like waters
that waves display
the sands of life
might wash away.
Leaving a moment
in your memory
as a seasonal sight,
the deep blue sea.
You might recall
a heart felt time
that lives each day
within your mind.
The time’s alive
as minutes grow
with oceans tide
of ebb and flow.
The sands of life
become a kiss
a time and place
we reminisce.

Blue And White

Life begins
with imagination
brought alive
in our perception.
A cloudy sky
in a field of blue
displays a sight
we wish to view.
Created in style
as we look on
the blue and white
is never gone.
For it’s remembered
as another day
in blue and white
with a little gray.
Those distant times
of there and then
are just as pages
within the wind.
Blowing briskly
and then at peace
the blue and white
gives great release.
A certain style
within the view
displays a heartfelt
time so true.
Just like seasons
that come in sight
the gray dissolves
in blue and white.

Time’s Hourglass

Looking seeing
perceptions glance
as the sands of life
display their dance.
Pouring as water
the sands will flow
ticking as a clock
on a daily show.
Time’s hourglass
displays scenery
signs of the times
for you and for me.
We might forget
a morning’s dawn
as we walk onwards
to just carry on.
Each scene’s a page
in the book of time
some as a rhythm
and some as a rhyme.
We might not see
the sands that fall
and put in place
life’s bouncing ball.
The words united
as each is displayed
with time as visual
of life’s lemonade.
Yet all the doorways
of future and past
display the shadows
of time’s hourglass.

Just Within

Means of times
are filled with gaze
as eyes of life
in a certain phase.
The stills we see
might fade away
within a frame
of night and day.
The living scenes
might not breathe
for they might be
of painted seas.
Or maybe a time
a flower and vase
with cup and tea
for life’s embrace.
Yes the sights
of time and again
might just be
found just within.

Reflections Of Life

Sometimes reflections
are that of the sky
displaying the beauty
that seasons comply.
Reflective moments
of scenic displays
can become times
to heal all the grays.
Reflections of life
in a wonderful style
can change a frown
into a glorious smile.
Sometimes the waters
of a rippling lake
display all the colors
of which they partake.
Trees in the distance
reflecting their flow
as the waters glimmer
and put on a show.
The blue sky above
might also be seen
flowing as a moment
of a magical dream.
Within the reflections
you might also see
a bird flying by
or a small bumble bee.
It can be a moment
a time to prevail
as reflections of life
with Heaven set sail.

Time Opens Doors

Many a viewpoint
becomes as a glimmer
hurried for a moment
for you then to enter.
Yet when you enter
you might find regret
for the hurry of time
of impatient sweat.
Time opens doors
to a choice every day
as just for a time
or a seasons array.
Often it’s our hurry
that creates our view
riddled with problems
that time did accrue.
Not knowing truly
how hurry would find
time in a storm cloud
without peace of mind.
Allow for a moment,
don’t hurry along
and look for the better
than what that is wrong.
Remember your past
and use it real well
to find more of Heaven
and lesser of Hell.
For views of a moment
that hurry explores
may need some prayer
for time opens doors.

Haiku
for July 14,  2018

So many errors
can be prevented with time
and less of hurry.

Looking for some stars
you might find a few glimmers
that have ceased to shine.

Seasons of grandeur
are often our memories
and not what that’s true.

Overuse of time
can lose minutes within it
that were just a waste.

Summertime’s flowers
can emulate that of spring,
but autumn says cease.

Planting a flower
does not assure it will grow,
for it needs nurture.

A page from our book
might have many blank pages
needing us to write.

Beyond what we see
might be a whole other world
that is watching us.

Yesterday’s future
is often not what’s perceived,
for tomorrow thrives.

Living in the past
will often create baggage
that never ceases.

Green grass of summer
is a beauty to behold
unless you’re mowing.

Darkness of evening
gives way for nighttime’s starlight
to tell their stories.

Minutes in anger
can turn into dynamite
if not extinguished.

A painted picture
might live inside of your mind
and needing brushstrokes.

Each day that begins
has its very own design
hidden in the day.

The sight of raindrops
does not mean there is a storm,
because rain gives life.

True friends are always,
for even after they’re gone
they live in our heart.

Shadows of nighttime
are often only tree limbs
swaying in the breeze.

Glimmers of the truth
still exist in someone’s lies
but maybe faintly.

Heard as a heartbeat
the waves of life show rhythms
beating as a drum.

Winter’s memories
are as snowflakes falling down
creating beauty.

The hands of a clock
speak of hours and minutes
that life passes by.
