ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you’ve had a great week and the
weekend has been fair enough for ya. It’s
been just another week gone by up here.
Not much changed.  Judy and I didn’t do
much all week.  Though Friday we sort of
made up for it :).  We went to the Dollar
Tree store and Walmart.  Then we stopped
off at Houlton Farms Dairy to get us an
ice cream before they shut it down for the
year.  Then we headed home and when I
went in the house to let the boys out of
their cages,  they went running outside to
only be joined by our neighbors and their
little pup Mayor.  Benny and Rocky were
all ecstatic hehehe.  Also a few of the kids
from next door had come over to play
with the boys and I got a lot of pictures
of all of this LOL.  After the kids all left,
Judy and I took the boys out for a little
field trip,  but dagnabit the little girl with
her puppy came out to join us.  Benny
and Rocky began focusing on Mayor 🙂
and when Jazmin took Mayor back home
the boys wanted to follow,  but I hollered
NO real loudly and they stopped in their
tracks.  Of course I had to holler a few
times before they actually quit turning
around to chase after Mayor LOL.  After
all of that the boys began doing as they
always do,  just investigating anything
and everything that caught their eye LOL.
Rocky got pooped and so I picked him
up for a while and carried him,  but then
Benny saw that and wanted me to carry
him too hehehe.  So,  after I put down
Rocky I went and carried Benny for a
while LOL.  Judy got a few pictures of
me carrying the boys.  LOL we both got
quite a few of the little girl and her puppy.
Judy had a craft night Saturday night and
me and the boys just hung out together.
I recorded a few programs for Judy and
I to watch and wrote a few poems.  The
boys spent most of their time lying in the
kitchen floor waiting for Judy to get home.
They would come in here from time to
time and hang out,  but spent more time
in the kitchen floor LOL.  I knew when
Judy was home due to all of the whining
and barking from both of the boys hehehe.
Judy got home around midnight as she
does most times on paint or craft night.
When her and her sisters and daughters
get together,  there is no telling when
Judy will come home LOL.  I also spent
a few hours out in the addition cleaning
the freezer that came with it getting it
ready to use when our landlord finally
gets the electricity hooked up.  Although
I am thinking of using the heavy duty
orange extension cord and just running
it out to the freezer to start using it now 🙂
I might do that this evening.  Anyways,
God is still looking out for Judy and I.
I sense many spirits around us guiding
us and protecting us.  Judy and I tend
to get on one anothers nerves from time
to time being we are both retired LOL,
but for the most part life is good.  It
could always be worse.  Judy has been
busy creating clothing designs on the
internet and trying to sell them.  Maybe
one day our books and stuff will begin
selling,  but for now,  it just seems to be
but only a hobby to keep us busy. Time
marches onwards.  The doors to tomorrow
are awaiting as the windows often show
what’s inside,  but maybe of a distorted
view. Let God help you choose the right
pathway.  At first the path might seem
as the wrong one,  but lessons are for
us to learn.  So,  now I reckon it’s time
for me to begin my little journey back
through all that I’ve written here to see
if I can find a good word or phrase that
I can use for the title for today’s brand
new poem.  So it’s away I go to that little
place of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe
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…

The Doors

Within a doorway
a time we view
might be a moment
a little askew.
A scene that’s waiting
for now and again
filled with lessons
a time to begin.
Some doors might be
of a dusty style
ones with sadness
nary a smile.
Yet many lessons
can come to be
the sights and sounds
for you to see.
Then as a teacher
your time explores
lessons from God
seen through the doors.

So there ya go.  I hope the poem makes at
least a little bit of sense to ya.  Also I hope
that my rambling was not too boring LOL.
I know I tend to ramble about the weirdest
stuff hehehe.  Anyways,  hopefully something
I said made ya smile.  There’s not much else
to tell you.  The weekend has been not too
eventful.  I’m almost done with the poetry
pictures for book 5 or V 🙂 and then I’ll be
ready to start the publishing phase.  Still
it seems to be but only a hobby being our
books are not selling.  I had thought that
they would of begun selling before now,
but nope.  Hopefully before we die they’ll
start selling HaHaHa.  So that’s about all
I have for ya.  Now I guess it’s time for me
to tell you what I tell you almost every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with an
added 6.  There’s 1 Christmas poem in the
mix hehehe.  Also I once again wrote 22
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out there.
I truly 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 wonderful weekend or whatever is
left of it and a truly blessings filled week.
Now,  where is that off switch attempting
to hide this week?   LOL I see ya you little
varmint.  Hiding behind my old K2 meter
again are ya,  Well next time try hiding
on the other side of it.  I can see ya plain
as day LOL.  Try harder next time will ya.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Evenings Awakening

With time and sight
of evenings view,
the life of scenes
becomes anew.
Evenings awakening
becomes a thing,
a sight and sound
that surely sing.
Lifetimes within us
as our memories
are as the journals
of oceans and seas.
Evenings awakening
is valued so great
as it becomes as
a place to escape.
Not letting sadness
to live as your sight,
evenings awakening
shines Heavens light.
Stars up above us
shimmer and shine,
filling a dreamer
with a lifetime divine.
Twinkles of starlight
are stories to tell
as a lighthouse light
helps ships that sail.
Guiding journeys
through seas of love,
evenings awakening
displays from above.

Dark Skies Surprise

A gloomy sight
might have to tell
a story time,
a wishing well.
Scenes are exposed
as lifetimes charade,
the skies of eve
that time portrayed.
Dark skies surprise
that mimic a time,
clouds as rivers
with oceans of rhyme.
Minutes might show
a beckoning scene
across the sky
as a rushing stream.
Seen as a season
the moments detail
clouds of formation
as a ships mighty sail.
These are emotions
of the end of day
dark skies surprise
of a wonderful way.

Special Times

Snow filled passion
filled with peace
are special times
for eyes to feast.
A wintery day
of seasons delight
brings a glimmer
of bright sunlight.
Those are the scenes,
those are the days,
those special times,
those wondrous ways.
Christmas in essence
as hearts agleam
become as the best
that I’ve ever seen.
Snow filled blessings
the season unwinds,
Christmas with love,
those special times.

White Of Winter

As an ocean
white snow flows
as the waves
of life bestows.
White of winter,
sky of blue,
gives a picture
then to view.
Winters stage
is snowy white
in a picture
now in sight.
I remember
those cold days
as the season
Christmas phase.
Life is portioned
front and center
in a photo
white of winter.

Abstract Mind

A painted time
from memory
becomes a find
that’s given free.
The colors blend
into the days
as the moments
abstract ways.
Life’s a painting
done by God
often abstract
a little odd.
Yet the seasons
times details
may be colors
as pastels.
Many colors
that we find
might be brighter
abstract mind.

Seagulls Flight

We are searchers
found in flight,
seeking often
for daylight.
Through the days
our wings may be
flapping quickly,
none can see.
Though sometimes
in futures day
we might wither,
we might sway.
Yet when joined
by others strength,
we can fly a
greater length.
Our hearts flapping
seeking sight,
grows with others
seagulls flight.

Thoughts We’ve Had

Through a window
life we’ve seen
might be only
a passing dream.
Ways we thought of
as time went on
became as windows
to all that’s gone.
Thoughts we’ve had
each time of day
are still existing
within their way.
An ocean cruise
a vessel of time
can then enhance
within your mind.
Allow the moments
to live and breathe
the thoughts we’ve had
on distant seas.

Searching For Time

When in the shadows
of our passing days
we’re often searching
for the much better ways.
The scenes remembered
as they faded on through
and turned into shadows
of me and of you.
We’ve each got stories
of times we recall
found in the shadows
that then were so small.
Searching for time
in a place we remember
might find just a view
of a mild burning ember.
Yet time moves onwards
as footsteps are made
leaving but an essence
that time will degrade.
One day your memories
will fade from your mind,
so reach out to find them
while searching for time.

Through The Mind

With time comes life
that passed us by
leaving us to wonder
how and why.
Through the mind
those scenarios
expose themselves
as memoir shows.
With each new day
that time explores
our mind unlocks
some brand new doors.
Some as an ocean,
a breeze blowing in
and some as a time
awaiting to begin.
You might see waters
in a passageway
as moments evolve
to a passing wave.
Yet each and every
moment in time
can be remembered
on through the mind.

All Alone

Sometimes within
is a lonely sight
that nobody sees,
for time isn’t right.
Being with others,
but still all alone
is a pattern of life
so many have known.
Wading through life
in a watery flair
leaves oh so many
without love and care.
They might elude us
due to hidden attire
found with so many
a hopeless aspire.
Don’t be so quick to
discern who they are,
for they might just be
all alone from afar.

Another Glance

Among our pathways
journeys find
another glance
of a point in time.
They may seem bland
those times we see,
but now stand out
in our history.
Old photographs
of timeless days
now seem to be
of a magical phase.
Our hearts beat faster
with each detail
with another glance
of an empty well.
Maybe just a wall
of a moment in time
becomes a wonderful
scene so sublime.
The simplest things
that then were grey
are the things we love
of another day.
A wall by the sea
or an ocean of blue
with another glance
our sights are anew.
With another glance
in shadows of life
we might find an end
to all of our strife.

Colors Of Life

The brightest hues
within our gaze
can be enhanced
on sunshine days.
The colors of life
are pretty to see
as flowers bloom
through history.
We are the colors
of life you and I
as we together
seek life to apply.
Allowing the beauty
of now and then
to be much grander
than that of our skin.
Become a blessing
to share with time
the colors of life,
a wondrous design.

Certain Memories

A time long gone
that then was age
becomes a time
a turning page.
Old and weathered
falls from view
to then become
as something new.
Certain memories
fall in place
as time displays
a sight or face.
Those old scenes
that passed us by
are then recalled
as seasons fly.
Our minds will then
become a breeze
as time displays
certain memories.

Time Displays

The days and weeks
of then and past
become the times
we thought would last.
The certain scenes
of then and there
become as ages
with great flair.
Those are the moments
that come into view
as time displays
what then was new.
The past has ways
of displaying sights
times we remember,
days and nights.
Yes,  time displays
what’s left behind,
a now so special
point and time.

Friends Of Past

I can remember
what time has gone by
those friends of past
that seasons apply.
So long ago
the times displayed
friendly connections
that minutes had made.
Times I remember,
that working career
that brought me friends
that were so sincere.
Those days are gone
as time expired
leaving a friendship
that working acquired.
Yet now those days
are found to increase
with friends of past
as memoirs of peace.

Moment’s Escape

Lifetimes of travel
with mindset ambition
can become doorways
with a bad transition.
Look beyond wants
and see all that’s there
within a mere moment
of seasons fresh air.
Find the true beauty
of a moment’s escape
within the daylight,
a form or a shape.
Look for the glimmers
of hope in a scene
such as a clear sky
of aquamarine.
Maybe even mountains
or hills within sight
can display a day
to one you’ll delight.
Life as a window
that time seeps through
is a moment’s escape
we can see as anew.

Haiku
for Sept 17,  2017

Beneath the surface
might be a hidden attire
that you cannot see.

Counting the minutes
can make moments seem longer
than they really are.

A times hurricane
might seem as mere destruction,
but teacher of life.

Finding emotions
can unlock times mysteries
that you never knew.

A floral lifestyle
brings forth many that will bloom
and some that wither.

Chance is a second
that becomes either the best
or the wrong pathway.

Looking for shadows
in the midst of the darkness
might show images.

Allowing a thorn
to be embedded in life
can grow more problems.

A journey through time
might look like pathways of Hell,
but good can be found.

Time in a bottle
can be as someone’s hobby
that turned into strife.

A camera’s lens
can become cluttered with life
and lose its focus.

Joined by our mindset
we can either destroy life
are help it to grow.

Without first thinking
we chance to cause destruction,
so think it over.

The grass seems greener
from another point of view,
but it might be dead.

Various people
wear their problems in the open
seeking sympathy.

Within a morning
holds chances for a new day
that you can change you.

Driving country roads
displays stories to be seen
that time has weathered.

Patterns of a rose
are as petals in the wind
awaiting to bloom.

Now is a moment
that will soon pass from our sight
leaving memories.

Consisting in time
leaves a portion of ourselves
found within the past.

A blank mind that speaks
puts forth no intelligence,
for it hasn’t learned.

Belief is hopeful,
for without belief is dead
without any gain.

Making Plans

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a peaceful week this week up here,
but we can see that Florida isn’t having such
a peaceful time.  We’ve been keeping tabs on
Irma as well as Jose that is right behind it and
it makes me fear for all those that are enduring
the hurricanes or have gone through the hell.
We are still in prayer for all those that were hit
by Hurricane Harvey.  Makes me glad that we
live away from all of that hehehe.  Although we
do have our share of cold weather,  snow and
blizzards hehehe.  So,  what’s happened around
here this passed week?  Well,  Thursday,  Judy
and I went to town and got us some ice cream
at Houlton Farms Dairy.  Before we did that
we went to Walmart and did a little shopping.
Then later that evening there was supposed to
be an Aurora Borealis,  but we couldn’t see it
from our house so we took a drive up north of
us a bit and we caught a mild glimpse of it,  but
it was too dark then to get any good pictures of
it.  We’ve decided that the next time that we hear
that the northern lights are peaking,  we’ll head
out before it gets dark LOL.  The boys enjoyed
the car ride we took up passed Caribou Maine.
Friday,  Judy went to her daughters house to
show off her new scarves that she created and is
selling.  While she was gone,  I did a lot of work
in the house such as carpet cleaning,  then when
I was done,  I went outside with the boys and
took a few pictures of the cloudy skies and a few
of the boys 🙂  I did a little weed eating while
Judy was gone.  I was one tuckered dude after
I got done doing all of that.  Crawling on the
floors scrubbing the carpets did me in basically
LOL.  Yep,  crawling on my knees is not what
I do very well.  I’ve still got a lot of scrubbing
yet to do,  but I got the carpets looking a little
better.  Our grandson (Christian) came home
with Judy Friday.  He spent the weekend with
us and his mom just now came and picked
him up.  We always enjoy having him come
and stay with us.  We spent many hours last
night watching funny Youtube videos and
trying not to laugh or smile LOL.  We also
watched a new episode of Dragonball Super
at 11 PM last night (Saturday).  Judy and I
are making plans on driving to Texas to see
my mom and others sometime next month.
We’ve yet to make a definitive date though.
Anyways,  life goes on.  Not much else has
gone on around the Pearce’s Place.  God is
still looking out for us.  We’ve got many
angels protecting us.  Thank You God for
all that You have done for us and all that
You will do.  Now,  I believe it’s time for me
to begin my search back through all of my
rambling to see if I can find a good word
or phrase that I can use for the title for
today’s brand new poem.  So,  it’s away I
go to that little place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a decent title just
a few lines back and now after checking
I see that it has not been used yet,  so used
it shall be 🙂  Here goes nothing…

Making Plans

Minutes ticking,
time goes on
finding right ways,
finding wrong.
Life’s a story
written in time
some making plans
for things to find.
Changing of faces
finds many scenes
some as an ocean
and some as streams.
When making plans
the times might be
found as a moment
that we shouldn’t see.
Allow the blessings
of now and again
to become lessons
from where we’ve been.
Seek the doorway
that time withstands
and learn much more
by making plans.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and maybe
even the poem.  I know the poem’s not one of
my best,  but they can’t all be winners LOL 🙂
It’s been fairly cool up this ways here lately.
Today’s high was around 63 F and the low for
tonight is supposed to be 49 F or more to the
point early Monday morning.  So I guess I’ve
told you about all there is to tell you except
for what I tell you every week and that is,  I
wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
I wrote 10 more poems with no extras ,  but
2 of them are Christmas poems.  I also wrote
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there.  I hope you can find 1 or  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 blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,  where
is that silly off switch hiding this week LOL?
Hmmm,  searching around the room in places
it’s known to hide hehehe.  LOL I see ya you
silly thing.  Hiding behind the DSL modem
was a good choice,  but it did require you to
lay flat and still, which is something that you
have never been known to do hehehehehehe,
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Peace With Time

Signs of times
with stormy seas
can become
a peaceful breeze.
As the days
and weeks go by
peace with time
is God’s comply.
Maybe a second
or maybe more,
peace with time
comes in the door.
Life as hurricanes
storming through
shows in a moment
what time can do.
Yet then a blessing
from Heaven divine
brings a rainbow
peace with time.

So Faraway

Distant thoughts
of times gone by
leave us dreaming
till the day we die.
Scenes of pleasure
and scenes of pain
then so faraway
our thoughts retain.
Those memories
of days long gone
are still in existence
living on and on.
A certain view
of an open door
of another day
you still explore.
That’s a portion
of our driving force
scenes remembered
that’s now remorse.
Another moment
of another day
lives in our dreams
so faraway.

A Breath Of Life

As lifelong roads
of a scenic days
become a time
of which we gaze
the days and weeks
of every hue
will turn the page
from green to blue.
The trees of life
that surely grow
become the sights
from high to low
and the rivers
found as friends
become a journey
time transcends.
A breath of life
that God gave free
is there for us
to daily see.

Swinging On A Star

When troubles come
and steal your dreams
swing on a star
of heavenly scenes.
Let yourself fly
up high in the clouds
and find some peace
in the heavenly shrouds.
Life can be gruesome
and life can be sad,
but there can be peace
in lessons you’ve had.
Swinging on a star
of a nighttime inlay
can open the door
to a much better day
Find you a moment
a time you remember
swinging on a star
of a passionate ember.
A time that was happy,
a time you recall
swinging on a star
over the tallest of all.

Timeless Desires

Links to emotions
wintertime’s ways,
the past shows scenes
of old fashioned days.
Life as a snowflake
and building of wood,
timeless desires
so firmly withstood.
Found as memoirs
of white snowy scenes,
timeless desires
still display the means.
Glittering brightly
as Christmas divine
as the snow billows
within its design.
Leftover memories
that still have a breath,
breathed as emotions
that never found death.
They’re still displaying
an old wooden style
as timeless desires,
a Christmastime smile.
Timeless yet living
as passed days surprise,
Christmas of essence
that moments contrive.
Seen as the echoes
that winter acquires,
found as blessings of
timeless desires.

Horizons

A simple thought
of memories
can make them as
the deep blue seas.
Horizons found
to show so well
a time and place
with great detail.
As the waves
of our desires
the stage is set
with many aspires.
A dream come true
or wished to be
horizons of
a door and key.
With all the scenes
of now and then
horizons found
remember when.
Our lives might be
a certain hue
searching for
a sea of blue.
As every thought
is said and done
we search for more
each rising sun.
The horizons can
most surely be
a dream come true
that now can see.

Season Of Bliss

A ride through town
on Christmas nights
displayed the signs
of colorful lights.
A seasonal setting
that time bestowed
became a blessing
down the road.
A season of bliss
with heart and soul
brought a flavor
greater than gold.
Driving watching
lights bright sheen
red and yellow,
blue and green.
Life’s recorded
as a page defined
a season of bliss
with Christmastime.
With seasonal tunes
on the radio
playing those songs
from so long ago.
A special feeling
comes into play
while riding around
those Christmas days.
A wonderful feeling
gives that special kiss
on a Christmas drive
a season of bliss.

Driving Through Life

Searching for pathways
so timeless to view
your wheels might roll
just a little askew.
Driving through life
on an old country road
might display your sight
as some troubles unfold.
Look for the blessings
that come into play
while you are driving
in a lost sort of way.
Driving through life
often has a surprise
as blessings from God
in an Earthly disguise.
Don’t let your journey
to see only strife.
Look for the blessings
driving through life.

Mystic Moon

Nights of blessings,
nights of peace
show a journey
a heart’s release.
A mystic moon
within the night,
through the clouds
it shines so bright.
It gives itself
a moments heart,
a time and place
it sets apart.
With the moonlight
comes a sound,
a song of echoes
all around.
A bird so peaceful,
a singing loon
is heard amidst
a mystic moon.

Heart Of Life

A destination,
a scenic sight
displays true
the heart of life.
Scenes of motion,
scenes stood still
become a dream
that can fulfill.
Allowing minutes
to find a place
the heart of life
with saving grace.
God’s own beauty
displayed to see
becomes a path
for you and me.
It’s the blessings
that heal the strife
found within
the heart of life.

Haiku
for Sept 9,  2017

The life of seasons
is an echo of the past
that many look for.

Time is a venture
that comes in place as minutes
that pass as hours.

Storms will come and go
leaving memories of time
that teach and give pain.

Lost in a whirlwind
you might find yourself confused
at which way to turn.

Doors to tomorrow
might look like the passed doorways,
but change is within.

Like a hurricane
time can expose weakness
in all of our strengths,

Found in a circle
directions will be seen as
left becoming right.

As life loses breath
it finds yet another form
that lives forever.

Within a forest
might be a another world
that’s hidden from sight.

Seeking for true love
you might find a few people
that are filled will lies.

Various people
hold their self worth above others
even when they are less.

Sometimes a rain cloud
will act just like a large storm,
but be only fake.

Disturbing moments
can be rainbows in disguise
as the time passes.

Change can be scary
as life exposes moments
that you’re unprepared.

What’s on the outside,
might be different within,
so read the pages.

Someone’s neediness
might be due to hindering
of their younger years.

A flowers blossom
will become as many seeds
as time goes its way.

Excitement of life
often comes in many views
that live within us.

Confusion guides life
as prayer can become doorways
to find direction.

Beyond our vision
is a life of mystery
that can be greater.

Sudden conclusions
can expose our ignorance
in the days ahead.

An oceans harbor
can be hit with hurricanes
that redesign it.

For The Most Part

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Judy and I have been keeping tabs on the
hurricane that hit the south.  It looks like
Harvey did more destruction than anyone
had thought possible.  Our hearts go out
to all of the ones that were in its path and
found themselves in the crosshairs of the
storm.  So,  I guess it’s onwards with the
journal.  This passed week has been good.
Not much has happened within these walls.
Nope the Pearce’s Place has been but only
busy with painting and poetry writing.  I’ve
written 132 poetry pictures so far for book
number 5. Just a few more and I’ll be ready
to put them in a book and publish 🙂  So,
what else have we been up to?  Well Judy
and I have ordered us a new snow blower.
It’s a bit more of what I need than the one
I bought a couple of years ago.  That one
was more of a snow shovel that  blew the
snow out in front of you.  So I guess you
can figure that was not so swift hehehehe.
Oh yea,  Last Thursday (Aug 31) was my
birthday and Judy and I did as we do every
year and went out to eat at the Governor’s
Restaurant in Presque Isle Maine.  It was
a good day.  My Governor’s Card had 18
dollars on it 🙂  They put 7 dollars on it for
my birthday 🙂 and I had 11 dollars saved
on it from last year,  so they paid for half
of our meal 🙂  That made for an awesome
birthday.  I took a lot of pictures to and
from Presque Isle.  Also Friday,  Judy’s
sister Barbara had a doctors appointment
so Judy and her other sisters all rode
down with her and while she was gone I
took the boys (Benny and Rocky) with me
to town to pay the electric bill and then
stopped off at the Houlton Bridge and
got out to take a few pictures.  After that
I took a drive by Walmart and did some
grocery shopping.  The boys enjoyed the
ride.  When we got home,  I got out our
weed eater and did a little weed eating 🙂
until the battery died and I had to put it
on the charger.  It was actually a miracle
that it had held a charge since last year.
Our landlord had hired someone to take
care of most of the weed eating and lawn
mowing but it seems that they must of
quit.  Anyways,  onto yet another topic
that involves our landlord.  He had a bad
wreck down in southern Maine (Fairfield)
and I believe he’s still in the hospital.  He
had multiple broken vertebrae,  a broken
neck and broken leg in multiple places.
So all I know other than that is that he’s in
a body cast.   We had thought they had said
he was home,  but we may have misheard.
No matter.  I spoke with my new neighbor,
Matt the other day and he said he would
tell Calvin that he would finish up with the
house addition.  Matt’s a carpenter. So,
it looks like we might finally get that done.
It sure would be nice to have the porch
all finished and wired up so we could start
using it as we’ve been wanting to.  Time
will tell.  So,  what else is happening that
is news worthy, from up here that is LOL?
It looks like God is still watching over us.
We have our share of daily problems,  but
for the most part ,  we are doing well 🙂
Thank You God for always staying with
us,  guiding us and showing Your love and
mercy.  So now I guess it’s time for me 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 to that 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 searching
I see that I have not used it as of yet,  so
used it shall be 🙂  Here goes…

For The Most Part

In life comes struggles
of a different degree,
some as a blessing
and some you can’t see.
Yet for the most part
there’s lessons to learn
found in the struggles
that we then discern.
Time can be angry
as pages are torn
found as a journal
that might seem forlorn.
Yet as a windmill
the grains of life thrive
found for the most part
to keep us alive.
Don’t let the problems
of yesterdays find
you just reliving them
time after time.
Take a little time
for a prayer now today
then for the most part
you’ll be OK.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem.
Also I hope you enjoyed my rambling 🙂
If I bored ya to sleep,  then at least ya got
a nap LOL.  There’s not much else to tell
you other than what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with an
added extra 3 to up the count to ye ole 13.
There are 4 Christmas poems in the mix 🙂
Also I wrote 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
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 wonderful
weekend or whatever there is left of it and
a truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now, to
find that ornery off switch.  Where could
it be hiding this time????  Hmm,  it seems
that I see a little reflection in my eyeglass
cleaner bottle.  Yep,  there ya are hiding
behind a CLEAR bottle of lens cleaner.
Do you ever freaking think about where
you are going to hide or do you just say,
That’ll do?????? LOL.  Well anyways,
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Old Time Memories

Back in the day
when snow was not seen
Christmases were still
the best of a dream.
Those times long ago
we drove to and fro
on Christmassy nights
with lights without snow.
We drove everywhere
that lights would gleam
those old time memories
now but a dream.
Scented with Christmas
and love in the air
we drove around town
with a Christmassy flair.
Songs on the radio
were so full of cheer
as they played on and on
this time of the year.
Christmastime ballads
with joyful  inlays
singing of Frosty
those Christmassy days.
Sounds would echo
as Heaven and Earth
the sweetest to hear
of Jesus Christ’s birth.
The music would waft
as a sweet ocean breeze
songs about Christmas
old time memories.

Scenes After Christmas

White snow is glistening
as the season displays
scenes after Christmas
those wonderful days.
Me with my camera
just walking around
seeking for Christmas
in scenes that are found.
Wonderful blessings
as snowflakes are seen
found then so magical
a Christmastime dream.
Just like a journal
that’s written in time
scenes after Christmas
are the greatest design.
Found in our memories
are oceans of style
scenes after Christmas
with a seasonal smile.

Painted With Life

Seen by the way
of a roadside of time
you might perceive
a country design.
Painted with life
as cattle will trod
scenes of a moment
given from God.
Time might echo
of another day
a time remembered
but a little grey.
Scenes of the past
that now come clear
painted with life
of a yesteryear.
God given moments
that ease the strife
found on the wayside
painted with life.

Wintertime’s Ways

Often a doorway
a passage of time
will form a moment
of winter design.
Seen within snow
as time goes its way
becoming a window
a Christmas display.
Life is a morsel
of Heaven divine
wintertime’s ways
of a moment in time.
Found as a blessing
a picture portrays
Christmastime’s scenes
in wintertime’s ways.

Under Water

Misconceptions
moments viewed
might leave many
so confused.
Under water
things might seem
as a moments
rushing stream.
Just a churning
atmosphere
at the moment
not so clear.
Let your eyes to
find some peace.
allowing rushing
then to cease.
Under water
might just be
your perception
that you see.
Let the minutes
find more clear
under water
atmosphere.

Seascape Journeys

Assorted times
within our view
might just be
a sea of blue.
Seascape journeys
far and wide
letting lessons
come inside.
As the sails
of seasons light
seascape journeys
come in sight.
Times of beauty,
times of pain,
times of rainbows
after rain.
Life is portioned
times details
seascape journeys
weathered sails.

Looking At Lights

A Christmas drive
a time ago
was seen so great
with much to show.
Scenes as special
memories
lights of Christmas
on the trees.
With Santa Claus
and a sleigh of bells
looking at lights
shows great details.
Even a snow globe
seen so alive
made this a special
Christmas drive.
It’s now remembered
magical sights
seen while driving
looking at lights.

Traveling Mind

Lost in a whirlwind
moments of time
brings forth conclusions
a traveling mind.
Life begins spinning
as echoes release
and that is the moment
in need of some peace.
A traveling mind
on roads tar or gravel
might show some signs
that lifetimes unravel.
Leaving but a glimpse
of a moment or two
found on your journey
with a dismal view.
Allow God The Father
to help you to find
peace on your journey
with your traveling mind.

Moonlight

Life of hurries
finds its place
in the moonlight
with much haste.
Not allowing
time to be
in the moonlight
peacefully.
Let the moonlight
find its glow
as it shines on
all you know.
Time can be
with less of pain
as the moon
shows its domain.
Such as shadows
in the night
peaceful settings
in moonlight.

Reflecting Memories

Our days that pass
become a view
a memory
that once was new.
Seasons pathways
create a time
painted with colors
that seem to rhyme.
Looking on through
to the memories
a watery passage
might seem as the seas.
Waves of echoes
that create a view
are blessings from God
from a sky of blue.
Reflecting memories
of a time long ago
can one day appear
as the worlds best show.

Weeping Willow

Life and times
a certain array
becomes a life
of another day.
A weeping willow
of song and dance
becomes a show
of given chance.
Minutes pass
and leave in view
a weeping willow
of thereunto.
A mere memory
of whose and whys
leave many with
tears in their eyes.
A weeping willow
of times regrets
that many now
the reason forgets.
The seasons of life
we fill up with woe
are us acting like
a weeping willow.

Walk Of Mind

When your struggles
become too grand
take a little walk
through dreamers sand.
Allow your mind
to display a place
a mindful journey
with an awesome taste.
A little walk of mind
to a scenic style
that for a moment
gives you a smile.
Don’t let the moments
to steal your peace.
Tuck it away
in the cosmic seas.
Allow the moments
to drift away
into a seasons
wonderful day.
Take a little breather
with God divine
and find blessings
with a walk of mind.

Orbs Of Life

Found in heartbeats
might be flames
orbs of life
with distant names.
Seen as circular
thoughts of times
orbs of life
are as ones minds.
Life of a spirit
seen in the dark
orbs of life
have much to embark.
Maybe a moment
as a mere memory
orbs of life
just wish we could see.
Found as destiny
written in a book
orbs of life
we might of mistook.
Life after death
in sunshine’s array,
orbs of life
are another day.

Haiku
for Sept 2,  2017

We are the counters
that fill moments with numbers
that don’t need counted.

Searching for roses
might uncover many thorns
that might pierce your heart.

Change is a moment
that can become bad or good
with situations.

A true beating heart
that is filled full of passion
will discover love.

Life finds disaster
when occasions open doors,
but peace can be found.

Fall leaves of autumn
become hardships for many
that are groundskeepers.

Years become journeys
leaving footprints of our lives
found as memories.

Lost down a byway
your past days might seem better
than they really were.

A raging river
might expand beyond its banks
due to much water.

Indecisive thoughts
can become troubles doorway
allowing a storm.

Simply believing
is not the answer for peace,
one must have actions.

Beyond the starlight
lives another point of view
that we may not know.

A flower’s design
will change within the seasons
as repetition.

Inside a rainbow
are the colors of Heaven
to promise us peace.

Peer pressure of life
can make many to do things
that is not their style.

A spinning turnstile
could find you in misery
without decisions.

The hope of a rose
is as petals of our lives
that can grow beauty.

Starting too quickly
can become a bumpy journey
that we’re unprepared.

Various flowers
are but only weeds of life
showing their beauty.

Now is a painting
that God has not finished yet,
for He has more plans.

Many distractions
will often slow down our steps
and they might save us.

Perspective is life
as our views might not connect,
but we can still love.

While We Can

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

While We Can

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

Aug 27,  2017

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

Life’s Decisions

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

Eden’s Flower

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

Reflecting Back

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

Fence Of Time

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

Rocks Of Life

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

Dark Desert Highway

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

Thinking Of Snow

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

Dreamy View

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

Autumn Tracks

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

We Are Flowers

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

Haiku
for Aug 25,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Factor

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

The Factor

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

Well,  there ya go.  Another of my efforts to
make sense hehehe.  I hope it at least made
sense to you hehehe a little.  If it didn’t then
Oh Well LOL.  Life goes on.  I also hope you
found a little peace in my rambling.  Hehehe if
not,  then it at least gave ya something to do
for a little while 🙂  So as I said earlier,  there’s
not much to talk about.  It’s been a peaceful
week for the passed few days.  With that said
I guess it’s time for me to be telling you what
I tell you every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 poems
with 5 extra this week with 2 Christmas poems.
Also,  I wrote once again,  22 haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can find
1 or 2 of either or both that you like.  Now 🙂
I believe it’s time for me to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a most wonderful weekend or what-
ever is left of it and a truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now to begin my search for ye ole off switch 🙂
Hmm,  where oh where can that off switch be?
LOL It looks like I see a little movement from
behind my infrared camera.  Yep,  there ya are.
That camera is one of my smaller cameras LOL.
Why didn’t you pick one of the bigger ones?
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Combined Together

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

Christmas Phase

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

Through The Snow

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

Fishing For Peace

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

Heavenly Light

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

Thoughts As Wind

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

Time Is Faint

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

View Of Life

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

Journeys Of Mind

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

Smiles Of Life

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

Night’s Persuasion

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

Like A River

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

Alone In A Crowd

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

Season’s Revival

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

Magical Times

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

Haiku
for Aug 19,  2017

Timeless survival
comes in form of a blessing
ones misunderstand.

Finding direction
can become aggravating
when all by yourself.

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

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

Tomorrows blessings
might be hidden in today
awaiting their time.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Maybe Not

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

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

Another Way

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

Two Ducks

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

Upon The Tracks

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

Heart That Glows
(Happy Birthday Sami)

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

Tons of love
from Grandma and Grandpa

A Little Light

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

Castle Of Love

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

Like A Flower

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

Drop By Drop

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

Three Crows

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

Like A Wave

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

Edge Of The Pier

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

At The Dock

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

Time Of Peace

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

Haiku
for Aug 12,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Here And There

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

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

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

To Turn Back Time

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

The Bench Of Time

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

Journey Of the Mind

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

On The Shore

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

Tiny River

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

A Little Walk

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

As Time Begins

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

A Moment Comes Alive

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

Autumn Bridge

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

Heaven Is A Place

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

A Time Reminds

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

Passing Thoughts

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

Bridge Of Dreams

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

Season’s Request

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

Haiku
for Aug 5,  2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a decent passed week.  The weather
has been staying on an even stride.  It hasn’t
gotten too hot.  But then we haven’t gotten as
much rain as we normally do at this time of
year.  Right now at 5:PM it’s 77 F degrees and
sunny.  Our new neighbors have been having a
lot of company.  Their swimming pool has been
used every day LOL even though the water is
just a tad cold.  The guy told me,  the kids don’t
care how cold it is LOL.  He said it’s too cold
for him hehehe.  What else is going on around
here?  Well,  last Monday we went to town to
do some shopping and of course I did as always,
I took pictures there and back LOL.  I took a
little selfie of me Monday for a friend of mine
and I posted it on Facebook LOL.  Wednesday,
Judy went down to Bangor with her sister Barb
for Barbs doctor appointment and to see their
brother Ricky.  Me and the boys as usual just
hung together and entertained one another 🙂
Of course they after a while had just parked
themselves in the living room to wait for Judy
to come home.  I spent much of the time just
sitting in here writing.  I’ve already written 69
poetry pictures for book 5 hehehe.  I’m over
a 3rd of the way done 🙂  Thursday we had a
visit from our oldest grandson Chance.  It was
great seeing him.  Of course now,  he lives just
down the road from us hehehe.  Anyways,  Judy
took a few pictures of him and me sitting on
the futon.  I remember when he was just a little
tike.  He was only maybe 5 years old hehehe.
Now he’s 21.  Boy the years have passed LOL.
Friday Judy and I went back to Walmart to get
a few things to last us till we get paid,  but it’s
looking like we might have to go again due to
a few things we failed to get LOL.  Ain’t that
the way it always goes hehehe.  Saturday we
took the boys out for a little field trip in front
of our house.  They always love to do that 🙂
but getting them to go back to the house is
sometimes a chore.  But then all we have to
do is holler,  ya wanna a treat,  or food and
that usually gets them headed back home 🙂
We always get a few good pictures of the boys
and us out in the field.  It was a beautiful day.
So you see,  not much goes on around here.
Judy has been doing her magnificent paintings
and I have been busy writing my semi sort of
magnificent poems LOL.  Yeppers,  not much
going on around The Pearce’s Place.  Life
in the not so fast lane hehehe.  Time is just
a number around here,  for the days all seem
to sort of look the same.  It’s 6:30 now and
75 F degrees.  Not too bad.  It’s begun cooling
off a bit.  It should be in the 50’s by tonight.
This house is still watched over by God and
many angels.  We have a few daily struggles,
but with God’s help and the many angels we
are able to find blessings.  So,  I reckon it’s
time 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 🙂
It looks like I may have stumbled upon a
fairly decent title just a few lines back in all
of my rambling and now after checking I see
that it has not been used yet,  so used it shall
be LOL.  Here goes…..

Not Too Bad

Through our doorways
time might show
ways confusions
which to go.
Scenes might display
happy and sad
but in time be
not too bad.
Through our lifestyles
pages turn
bringing pathways
to discern.
Our momentum
fast and slow
might confuse us
high and low.
Yet the footsteps
that we’ve had
might find one day
not too bad.

So there ya go,  I hope you like the poem and
maybe even all of my rambling.  I don’t think
I’ve forgotten to tell you anything about our
passed week.  LOL there was not that much to
tell hehehe.  So,  I guess it’s time for me to tell
you what I tell you almost every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yep
10 more poems with an extra 4 which ups the
count to 14.  Also I wrote 22 more haiku for all
of the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like.  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 wonderful weekend or whatever’s
left of it and a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  So Ok now 🙂
where is that confounded off switch hiding at
this week?  LOL I guess hiding is putting too
much of an emphasis on hiding,  being it’s
not that great at hiding hehehehehehehehe.
Oh for Heaven sake,  couldn’t you even find
a place that was not right freaking in front of
me?  Sheesh,  hiding behind my teeny weenie,
itsy-bitsy flash drive that is right  in front of
me LOL.  Yep,  there ya are as plain as the
nose on my face hehehe.  Try harder next time.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Million Dollar View

Life is a blessing
no matter the sight
scenes with rhythms
daytime and night.
A page from a story
is read with the eyes
a million dollar view
of sweet scenic skies.
The cover of the book
might not seem great,
but found within it
is a time to elate.
Words of a billow
as the hills will roll
a million dollar view
is a wonderful goal.
Displaying blessings
of God’s Own delight
the scenes come alive
displaying such a sight.
Blessings from Heaven
that show waters blue
are the pages to read
a million dollar view.

A Little Stroll

Those times of life
that now display
as my shadows
of a day
are scenes of life
and true memoirs
that then at times
was best of ours.
Yet those scenes
that I remember
are the times
a burning ember.
Just like pages
of a magazine
a little stroll
is surely seen.
Special moments
a time ago
a picture of
a little stroll.

The Heron

Within the waters
ocean quest
a bird displays
its very best.
Searching through
the waters waves
seeking food
on summer’s days.
The heron sifts
through waters blue
as the waves
go there and to.
A scenic sight
for ones to see
is the heron
of the sea.
It lives and breathes
with fish and more
as it searches
along the shore.
It might fly
to distant scenes
and continue
with its means.
The heron lives
another day
sometimes near
an ocean bay.
The heron’s also
another name
called an egret,
still the same.

Birds In Flight

Life is like
a moment’s flight
seen by day
and also night.
We’re as birds
with wings of ways
flying high
in Earthly phase.
Birds in flight
as sudden dreams
feathers flapping
in the scenes.
We’re as minutes
high and low
birds in flight
each way we go.
Seasons passing
bring in view
a sky of sights
as seas of blue.
Time is altered
with our strives
birds in flight
our daily lives.

Toronto Dreams

Landscape of life,
a skyline of scenes
finds the very essence
of Toronto dreams.
Maybe as a painting
or a picture to see,
Toronto has a view
that enlightens me.
As Lake Ontario
waters will glimmer
Toronto dreams will
begin to shimmer.
Bringing into view
the wondrous detail
of birds in the sky
with wings set sail.
You may not of seen
this place in time
found in Toronto
a scene so divine.
Yet you can fantasize
this wonderful place
of Toronto Dreams
with waters enlace.

In The Woods

Trees of burden
bring to view
sights of stories
me and you.
We’re the forest
times unfold
in the woods
our stories told.
Life’s a moment
shadows cast
in the woods
a moment passed.
Scenes around us
might become
in the woods
a setting sun.
We’re but wording
written ink
in the woods
of how we think.
Thoughts emotions
understood
are the lifestyles
in the woods.

Time Stands Still

Thoughts of stillness
will come alive
as our lifestyles
surely thrive.
Time stands still
within a frame
a timely moment
life’s attained.
Seasons grandeur
shines the best
as a seagull
found at rest.
It’s our decisions
that put in place
the timely manners
seasons taste.
Time stands still
with signs of life
found as glimmers
seasons thrive.
It’s the choices
that ones conceal
that make or break
as time stands still.

Cloudy Thoughts

Times envisioned
life that’s lost
finds directions
cloudy thoughts.
Scenes recorded
within the mind
find expressions
for life to find.
Cloudy thoughts
are often clues
seen as doorways
time should use.
Yet our thinking
might fall prey
to emotions
of yesterday.
Let life become
as it should be,
lessons learned
from history.
Don’t let fear to
be your boss.
Lessons come from
cloudy thoughts.

As A Sailboat

Time’s an ocean
winds that blow
helping sailboats
with their flow.
This is patterns
of our lives
time’s an ocean
ripples strive.
Waves display as
journey’s mile
as a sailboat
seeks the while.
Timeless moments
find a way
to sail across
another day.
As a sailboat
seas of blue
we are journeys
life anew.

Life As Water

Like a faucet
many pour
life and times
a scenic tour.
Yet some people
only find
life as water
on their mind.
Seen as ripples
maybe waves
as they journey
in their ways.
Pouring ideals
on ones sight
not allowing
others light.
Life as water
splashes true
things of me
and things of you.

Alone With Thoughts

Sat in a field
is a point and time
a scene so serene
of Heaven’s design
is a personal peace
where anger is lost
found in a time
alone with thoughts.
It could be a place
of anyone’s heart
found within time
for peaceful to start.
Alone with thoughts
is a poetic place
a time so divine
with smiles to enlace.
So sit in a field
of a harmonic motion
alone with thoughts
within Heaven’s ocean.
Seek for the joy
that once was lost
as you find peace
alone with thoughts.

Peace Is Just Perception

Time is but a mirror
reflecting sights we see
found in our perception
the scenes our eyes agree.
Peace is just a moment
that comes and goes away
leaving but only echoes
perceived in our own way.
Life is found reworded
the way ones wish to see
as with their perception
is what they wish to be.
We’re just like the ocean
with waves that crash ashore
bringing our perception
through a swinging door.
Scenes are found as beauty
while some are found not so
as we perceive our journeys
the only way we know.
Peace is just perception
of how things look to you
so take the time to clearly
see what’s really true.
Look within the journeys
and see what lives inside
then find the peace within it
to try to coincide.
Often it’s our egos
that cut us like a knife,
for peace is just perception
of how we live our life.

Morning Awakens

Strove as a moment
sought as a sight
morning awakens
to display its light.
Time might be failure
and life might be gray,
but morning awakens
to show a new day.
Lessons are gathered
with seasons of time
as morning awakens
to show what to find.
Peace is a portion
awaiting our view
as morning awakens
with each day anew.
Yet we are often
found looking awry
as morning awakens
with clouds in our sky.
Find then within you
the spirit of love
as morning awakens
from Heaven above.

Surreal’s A Breath

Our lives remembered
as heartbeats sway
are sometimes dreams
of a wanted array.
A simple little breath
of a time long ago
finds you remembering
the thoughts that grow.
Seasons so surreal
are blessings in time
a page from a journal
that’s now so divine.
Surreal’s a breath,
a field of grass green
as puppy dogs dance
while creating a scene.
A time of an essence
with wonderful style,
surreal’s a breath
that gives us a smile.

Haiku
for July 29,  2017

Heaven is a door
that is opened with a heart
displayed by pure love.

Life filled with passion
gives way to a decision
to choose what that’s right.

Morsels of sweetness
can become sour emotions
if they’re filled with lies.

Time is a journey
that some only find sadness
due to decisions.

Life is like haiku
as the seasons show blessings
in words of decor.

Legions of people
get lost in a liars quest
and cause others Hell.

Storms of emotions
find their place in a rain cloud
that might have rainbows.

As summer gives way
autumn is right behind it
to welcome winter.

A murder of time
shouts out loud sounds of summer
as crows will gather.

Seasons of grandeur
brings forth many perceptions
that ones might not see.

Love is a flower
that will bloom when it’s watered
or die from the heat.

When time awakens
it unleashes many thoughts
for us to choose from.

With spring in your step
you can bounce over problems
but still find troubles.

Tomorrows lifestyle
might be like a reflection
that’s gone distorted.

Fields of discontent
can infect a continent
so seek true guidance.

Lessons of a rose
are that of seasonal flare
that will weather time.

Among so many
are the different values
that tear us apart.

The lives of many
rely on the lives of the few
that might not be right.

Now is a doorway
that yesterday created
to show tomorrow.

Enhancing lifestyles
can uncover misery
that they have hidden.

Beyond what we see
are things ones sight can’t follow
due to none belief.

Cherishing our things
can become baggage of life
if we can’t let go.

We Must Endure

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How’s life been treating you?  It’s not been
too bad up this ways.  It got a little warm a
few days last week,  but it’s begun cooling a
bit.  Yesterdays high was 72 the same as it is
today.  It’s supposed to be in the 70’s most
of the week with maybe a day or two near
80.  LOL last night it got down to 39 F and
I had to shut the windows.  Yep,  it looks as
though summer is already bidding its adieu.
OK maybe not where you are,  but up here
it seems to be in its last days.  The warmest
month of summer up here is July.  Right now
at 5 PM it’s 70 F degrees.  Tomorrow’s high
is supposed to be 73 F.  Anyways,  it’s partly
cloudy skies today.  Next topic.  Our new
neighbors have been busy moving in.  They
have put up a large above ground swimming
pool.  LOL I wonder if they’re aware of the
winters we have?  It’s going to be seeing a
lot of ice and snow this winter hehehe.  We
shall see.  Not our problem 🙂  So,  what else
is there to talk about?  Well,  Judy and I
took a long scenic picture taking drive down
to the coast Wednesday and we got a lot
of great pictures there and to.  We stopped
off at many different landmarks and got
out and took pictures.  The boys went with
us 🙂  I think they enjoyed it.  They both
love to ride in the car.  We would stop at
the rest areas and wherever we saw a good
place to let them out on leash so they could
run around and go potty as well as to just
take in the sights for themselves 🙂  It was
a good 10 hour drive there and back home.
5 hours one way 🙂  So both Judy and I were
pretty pooped after all of that.  I think my
legs were put to the test and they lost LOL.
I walked more than I have in a long while.
It took me a couple of days to recoup.  Judy
didn’t walk quite as much as I did.  Thank
God 🙂  I don’t believe she would of made
it back up from the pier.  It was down hill
going there,  but an up hill climb back to
the car.  So what else has gone on around
The Pearce’s Place?  Well,  to be honest
it’s been sort of quiet aside from all of the
noise coming from the neighbors as they
come and go.  Judy had a craft night last
night (Saturday) and she made a duck tape
clutch purse hehehe.  She’s still been doing
a lot of painting.  I’ve already got a 3rd of
the poetry pictures written for book 5 LOL.
Yes I write a lot.  Although if you’ve been
receiving this news letter for a while,  you
should know that by now LOL.  Aren’t we
exciting hehehe.  Nope,  just typical old
folks enjoying life as best that we’re able.
These 2 boys of ours keep us entertained.
God is still watching over us protecting us
from evils of life.  Of course there are a
few things we must endure being we are
human and troubles in life help to make
us stronger.  So thank God for the things
that make you stronger.  Of course you
might not be aware of the things,  so be
grateful for all that life has given you as
the lessons grow and you become stronger.
Now,  I believe it’s time for me to begin
my little journey back through all that I
have written here to see if I can find me a
good word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem.  So,  it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  Hmm.  it looks like I may have
found a decent title just a few lines back
and now after checking I see that I have
not used it as of yet,  so used it shall be.
Here goes……

We Must Endure

While in a window
of torment and pain
we must endure
the moments of rain.
Scenes might encompass
some dark clouds amiss,
but lessons are displayed
within all of this.
We must endure
all the days that arrive
and change what we can
with each day alive.
God is still watching
and waiting each day
to see us endure
as we each kneel and pray.
Time gives a portion
of a scenery tour
goodness and misery
that we must endure.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem and
maybe even understood it.  Also I hope that
you enjoyed my rambling and it entertained
you for a while hehehe.  I don’t think there’s
anything else news worthy to tell you.  It’s all
been pretty much said.  There’s not much on
TV to watch today so I reckon we’ll be doing
our thing such as writing and painting.  Me
with my writing and Judy with her painting,
but here lately she’s been doing a little writing
too.  So that’s about all there is to tell you 🙂
of course aside from what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems
with 2 extras.  Nope no Christmas poetry
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 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
is that ornery off switch attempting to hide
this week?  Hmm,  LOL I think I see him
behind the Bubble Fun bottles right beside
the bubble blower that I bought to entertain
the boys hehehehe.  Yep,  there ya are you
silly.  Try a little harder next time will ya.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky

Simple Things

Life is short
as time will pass
minutes gather
way too fast.
Times we’ve seen
and looked around
show our shadows
on the ground.
For the journey
that we took
simple things
have lost their look.
The simple things
of life’s accord
might now be
the past’s reward.
Time’s we’ve hurried
passed some scenes
we might now miss
the simple things.

It Still Exists

Walls awakened
life is there
breathing essence
times aware.
It still exists
for life moves on
timeless days
another dawn.
Even the glimmers
of early designs
still in existence
a moment defines.
The walls of time
hold many faces
which still exists
as certain traces.
Time lives on
as moments mist
breathing memoirs
it still exists.

Finding Peace

Life’s a pathway
day and night
many wrong ways
many right.
Scenes discovered
might fall prey
to the minds
of yesterday.
Finding peace
is often hard
within your own
times front yard.
Yet the doorways
swinging true
giving pathways
different view.
To see some signs
of pains decrease
God gives help
for finding peace.

Behold The View

A storm becomes
the only scene
when we’re looking
for a dream.
It is our wants
that often lie
to misinterpret
times gone by.
Behold the view
the truth to see
the things in life
you’ve just set free.
We often gaze
on passed the best
while we’re seeking
east and west.
Behold the view
of now and then
and let the truth
then enter in.
Don’t let the good
to bid adieu.
Look more close
behold the view.

Life Passes By

As we breathe
we lose a breath
a certain time
of life and death.
Life passes by
as wheels will roll
time’s then seen
an alternate goal.
In our journeys
time might be
a life of wanting
new to see.
Yet the old
of which we view
is really growing
very new.
So the ventures
wheels of time
might just need
a new design.
The olden stage
of different days
might still hold
some helpful ways.
Learning lessons
from the past
can make better
shadows cast.
Time then shows
new ways to fly
things we’ve learned
as life passes by.

A Calming Day

Within a view
the tide is seen
a moment’s past
a certain dream.
Boats will float
amidst the frame
a moment’s time
to then attain.
A calming day
with little scorn
is found within
a new day born.
A scenic sight
of which to view
brings a chance
for life anew.
An ocean scene
with skies array
is such a sight
a calming day.

Walk Of Peace

On days of strife
take hold the reins
and find the peace
that’s within change.
Take a little walk
outside of your view
and find the peace
to live within you.
A walk of peace
a journey to see
a change in the days
with mind set free.
Look for answers
beyond the waves
with a walk of peace
to much better days.
Search for blessings
that you have missed
which may be a river
to turn and twist.
Look in the ripples
of your days accord,
have a walk of peace
with Jesus our Lord.

Rushing Minds

Life’s a passage
rivers flow
times we’ve counted
high and low.
In the essence
life exist
timeless portals
in the mist.

find a phrase
ticking seconds
in the days.
Flowing rivers
found within
time is essence
start to end.
In the shadows
of our times
many find their
rushing minds.

Fishing For Time

When waters flow
in your life of times
seek for the moments
of wonderful signs.
Reach out your hands
to grab a hold tight
the waters of dreams
in life’s moments light.
Fishing for time
in a stream of days
might become empty
with fish just a phase.
Let not the waters to
rush passed your look
while fishing for time
with an un baited hook.
Let all the lessons
of a moment’s design

Let all the sadness

and leave but only
the best of today.
Time is a portal
that we look through
minutes and hours
from old to anew.
Find some peaceful
within your memories
and then enjoy them
as oceans and seas.
Remember a time
in a field of green
or some other time
of which you’ve seen.
Look for the beauty
that’s lesser of strife
and then you’ll find

Roads We Go Down

Our lives might seem
an endless road
with life of times
a heavy load,
but paths might be
just misunderstood
roads we go down
from bad to good.
The scenes we see
might become faint
as earthly tones
with weathered paint.
The seasons change
with wheels of life
as time rolls on
with wrong and right.
We have a choice

Searching Scenes

Moments blissful
certain days
life is portioned
for a gaze.
Searching scenes
of times detail
brings us to
a life set sail.
Times we recall,
sights we’ve seen
become as our
wanted dreams.
As our journals
times fulfilled
burning embers
are instilled.
Searching scenes
we value best
brings us to
a place of rest.
Found as portions
true to see
searching scenes
of history.

Haiku
for July 22,  2017

Without a moment
our decisions are stagnant,
for time needs a place.

Through opened doorways
lies chances for right or wrong,
we should choose wisely.

The seams of our lives
are as threads time’s united
to bring us to one.

Beyond time and space
is a venture of the mind
that needs perspective.

Looking for flowers
might hide the most beautiful
behind what you see.

Shadows of ourselves
live as things ones remember
so take heed your life.

As a ticking clock
the hands of time continue
even when we’re gone.

The ways ones believe
creates a doorway of life
that ones don’t agree.

Harboring hanger
will cause a fuse to be lit
for an explosion.

Life in the fast lane
can burn up your fuel for life
before you know it.

Longwinded people
tend to lose themselves in words
that were not needed.

Lost in illusion
moments can become nightmares
when you’ve awoken.

The glamour of life
viewed from others perspectives
might be just a lie.

Challenging others
to what you are not sure of
proves your ignorance.

The beauty of time
is that of many chances
that we throw away.

Patience is waiting
for the right moment in time
and not just waiting.

A journey of miles
can become eternity
as life seems endless.

Looking too closely
you might miss all the beauty
seen from a distance.

Climbing a mountain
can be like a life’s journey
that wears on the mind.

Mindset of stubborn
holds a wall in place of life
that crashes in time.

Grasses of summer
grow as groundskeepers nightmares
that continue on.

Pointless is hatred
when it only makes you sick
and poisons your heart.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a sort of warm passed few days,
but still,  not too bad.  It’s raining off and
on right now.  The high for today is 82 F.
Right now though,  it’s 76 F at 3:30 PM 🙂
So aside from all of that,  today is pretty
nice.  Today is the boys birthday.  Yep the
boys are another year older.  Of course we
are not sure of the actually date that Rocky
was born,  but we know Benny’s.  He was
born July 16, 2011.  We assume that Rocky
was no more than 1 year old when we got
him,  so we just gave him Benny’s birthday
being we picked him up from the airport
on Benny’s birthday July 16 2015.  Rocky
was Benny’s birthday present in a way 🙂
They have become the best of buddies and
they look out for one another.  LOL you
can’t hold one without the other wanting
to be held.  If we sit on the recliner or the
futon,  they will both hop up on either side
of us.  Yep,  we’ve got some good boys and
Milo was one of them.  Next subject.  We’re
done with Rocky’s meds for when he got
sick.  He took the last of them yesterday.
LOL I put down his food today and he
looked up at me as if to say,  hey daddy.
something’s missing.  I guess he acquired
a taste for the pills and powder hehehehe.
Anyways,  he sniffed it a few times and
then proceeded in gobbling his food up 🙂
Benny fished his own and then came to
clean Rocky’s bowl for him,  but there
wasn’t anything left aside from the taste
on the bowl Hahaha.  Rocky pretty much
cleaned it up 🙂  They are both some tired
boys being every time I got up to go to
the bathroom,  they would be watching
me.  I guess they felt they needed to keep
an eye on me.  My health has been a bit
rocky here lately,  but all in all,  I am still
alive and good for another day hehehe.
I’ve been writing more picture poems 🙂
It looks as though I may have book 5
in the next few months LOL.  I have no
clue to how I stumbled upon this gift,
but it is one that God gave me, and so
I do my best to use it.  Judy has been
doing a lot of painting and she has even
bought back the rights to her first book
titled Hello My Name Is Benny and she
has republished it at a lower price than
the company that published before.  They
had it priced at $24.99 dollars,  and Judy
has it priced at $9.99 along with her other
children’s book The Adventures of Benny
and Milo.  Anyways,  she now is getting
ready to publish a book along with our
grandson Christian that will have poetry
in it.  It will be called Look Up.  So you
see,  we are a bunch of busy little beavers
over here LOL.  The Pearce’s Place has
turned into a regular writing force LOL.
So what else has gone on around this place?
Well Judy had a doctor’s appointment on
Tuesday and afterwards we went to the
Houlton Farms Dairy Bar and got us some
ice cream 🙂  It was a beautiful day for
ice cream LOL.  Then Thursday we went
to Pizza Hut and got us a couple of pizzas
to feed us for a couple of days hehehe 🙂
Then Friday, Judy’s daughter brought
Rylee our granddaughter over and we
had a great visit.  It was Rylee’s birthday
and she turned 10 on the 13th.  Judy gave
her a copy of her newest children’s book.
It was Judy’s proof copy,  but Rylee did
not mind 🙂  She was sitting on the futon
reading it and I took a few pictures of
her having fun with her book.  After they
left,  Judy and I took a drive to town to
do a little shopping.  So,  you see,  it’s
not too exciting over here hehehe.  Just
enough for Judy and I LOL.  This week
looks to be even less exciting hehehe.  No
plans except maybe to take some pictures.
Yep,  we might take a drive 1 day this
week to take some pictures,  but still not
sure when or where to go.  We’ll get r dun.
So,  it looks like God is still watching over
us as the days pass us by.  Yes we have a
few bumps in the road and challenges to
overcome,  but together with God and
the angels watching over us,  we will be
OK.  So I guess it’s time for me to take
my little journey back through all that I
have written here to see if I can find me
a good word or phrase that I can use for
the title for today’s brand new poem 🙂
And so it’s away I go to that little place
of my recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  It looks like
I may have found a decent title to use
and now after checking I see that I have
not used it yet,  so used it shall be 🙂
Here goes nothing,  though I hope not 🙂

Take A drive

Times and places
find our glance
when we give our
lives a chance.
Take a drive through
now and then
and find lifestyles
to begin.
See the choices
time displays
that can become
better days.
Take a drive now
see the sights.
Find momentum
days and nights.
Let God guide you
to survive
as you live to
take a drive.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and you
maybe even liked the poem LOL.  If you
understood the poem,  then that’s a plus 🙂
There’s not much else to tell you.  I think
I’ve told you all there is to tell about our
passed week and plans for this week.  So,
I guess it’s time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and that
is I wrote some more poems and haiku 🙂
Yeppers,  10 more poems with an add 4 to
bring the count up to 14. 1 of the poems is
a Christmas poem.  I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out there.
I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either or both
that you like.  LOL I just snuck into the
living room and got a picture of the boys.
Benny on his favorite recliner and Rocky
on the futon.  I opened the window and
turned on the fan for them so they would
be a little cooler.  With that said I guess
it’s time for me to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a wonderful weekend or
whatever’s left of it and a truly awesome
week.  Remember Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now where’s that silly off
switch hiding this week?  Hmmmmmm,
I think I may have seen some movement
from behind my nose spray.  LOL talk
about a bad hiding spot Hahaha.  Plus,
you can’t even stay still for a second
without peeking to see if I can see you 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Winter’s Decor

A passing day
of cold snowy white
becomes as a scene
that many delight.
With winter’s decor
in a wonderful way
creating a picture
of night unto day.
The scene’s of stillness
painted with snow
joined with the essence
as winter winds blow.
With winter’s decor
is a taste of a time
that is a blessing
for many to find.
Life is a portion
time to explore
as seasons come alive
with winter’s decor.

Going Home

A scene by the sea
that is home by the way
displays such a time
of a so distant day.
A home bound journey
just walking a while
going home surely
with a great big smile.
The condo awaits us
as we leave the sea
when we’re going home
to when used to be.
This is a memory
a time in detail
of us going home
down this little dirt trail.
The summery season
becomes such a sight
when we’re going home
in evenings delight.

Just Like A Dream

Fantastic scenery
times that displayed
are often a dreamworld
so heavenly laid.
Times we’ve imagined
that brought us a view
stirred up emotions
to drink of life’s stew.
Sometimes our minutes
might seem as a day
and then in the moments
just fade fast away.
Yes just like a dream
many things that we see,
become as our visions
that we brought to be.
Allowing our lifestyles
to become as a scene
found as a blessing
just like a dream.

Life Is An Ocean

Waves we encounter
bring forth a view
times for embracing
the things we do.
We’re like the waves
that crash on a shore
making our markings
upon the Earth’s floor.
Our seasons arrive
as waves that will roll
while paying the piper
for oceans of goal.
Written as lifestyles
we’ve put in motion
time is of essence
life is an ocean.

Evening’s Memory

Time has passed
and left in view
a time so sweet
of ocean blue.
Evening’s memory
comes unto me
a time I find
now wished to see.
We each have scenes
of life’s desire
evening’s memory
passions fire.
The memories are
the times we found
a scene we saw
of sight and sound.
A simple taste
is still alive
within your days
as heartbeats thrive.
Evening’s memory
will come in view
each time you dream
of a time so true.

Sky’s Reminder

Drifting scenes
of gray and white
display signs
of times delight.
The sky’s reminder
comes alive
a time we’ve seen
as minutes drive.
Across the sky
the scenes display
the passion of
a Godly play.
A simple scene
yet so detailed
the sky’s reminder
of life entailed.
The seconds pass
creating time
as clouds pass by
with each design.
Formed as dreams
of times display
burning bright as
light of day.
Then the night sky
becomes seen
the sky’s reminder
as a dream.
The sky transforms
into a view
the sky’s reminder
for me and you.

Peace Awakens

Found are seasons
in the waves
life that comes
from distant days.
Peace awakens
such a sight
when we learn
to do what’s right.
The stage is set
when time’s begun
to bring us peace
in seasons sun.
Found are moments
counted trails
footprints making
times details.
Then as seconds
pass us by
the past is gone
we can’t deny.
Leaving baggage
time’s partaken
brings some hopeful
peace awakens.

Tiny Crab

While I was walking
just looking around
I saw a tiny crab
down on the ground.
He walked sideways
each way he went,
this tiny crab
of times intent.
I bent down close
to tell him hello
but it seemed to him
to just impose.
He scurried fastly
on back to the sea
this tiny crab
to get away from me.
But I managed to
tell him goodbye
which for the moment
I know not why.
For he just wanted to
crawl away
and find some peace
one summer’s day.

Scope Of Mind

A certain time
becomes displayed
a scope of mind
with leaves inlaid.
A seasons view
on down the road
becomes a day
that God bestowed.
With our lifestyles
on the brink
with confusion
how we think.
The scope of mind
is found to be
a certain way
of which we see.
Our perceptions
gathered true
become our daily
point of view.
A seasons doorway
that we find
might just be
our scope of mind.

Haunting Dreams

Life is a picture
a timeless emotion
found in some scenes
as a turbulent ocean.
Haunting our minutes
as dreams come true
time becomes moments
with minutes to view.
Sometimes the hauntings
are not but a dream
a time we’ve envisioned
as a fast moving stream.
Life is a picture
that brings us a choice
a time of our mind
to speak out our voice.
Heard as an echo
a scenic surprise
the passing displays
some clouds in the skies.
Our haunting dreams
of heartbeats array
can bring into view
a wonderful day.

Awaiting Time

The sea stands so still
as lives moves along
with now and then often
there then and gone.
As time is with ripples
and a sleeping blue hue
the ones awaiting time
will see their own view.
An ocean of stillness
as a motionless life
displays as fulfillment
without any strife.
Yet time is a billow
with seconds to count
scenes we’ve recorded
as moments surmount.
Our vessel’s preparing
to sail to the sea
as life is concluding
what’s for you and me.
Life is with chances
that we often begrime
found in the seaway
while just awaiting time.

Holes In The Mind

Segments of a cloud
are as thoughts to see
holes in the mind
up above you and me.
Fueled imagination
as clouds in the sky
are as a dreamworld
with life to fly by.
Holes in the mind
are displayed as scenes
maybe as mountains,
maybe as streams.
Clouds give artwork
to create what we see
while we imagine
we are flying so free.
We can be an eagle
that flies with grace
as holes in the mind
create such a place.
That void we created
can become such a time
life within the clouds
as holes in the mind.

Crashing Waves

Binding times
of dismal days
are so often
crashing waves.
Seeming as our
burdens drive,
they so often
keep us alive.
All the struggles
in times we see
can bring a door
and brand new key.
Crashing waves
of looming life
might at times
cut like a knife.
Yet the storms
that time displays
might have lessons
crashing waves.

A Christmas Theme

With winter’s breath
and snow of white
a Christmas theme
comes into sight.
A peaceful view
of certain scenes
becomes the settings
for ones dreams.
The life and times
of hearts aglow
is found within
the Christmas snow.
With carolling
of songs so sweet
and Christmas food
so good to eat.
Those memories
become a day
a Christmas theme
that times display.

Haiku
for July 15,  2017

A flowers purpose
is found within its beauty,
but it is much more.

Living in a dream
can create many problems
for the truth will come.

With lives incomplete
time can become a nightmare
awaiting a dream.

Common sense tells us
to look before you walk out,
but some have no sense.

Time is a bubble
that’s often floating around
until it is popped.

Showers of raindrops
bring life to each living thing,
but sometimes too much.

Now is perspective
seen only by our ideals,
but we might be wrong.

Life is a moment
that a living thing finds breath
of what all it breathes.

Change is theory
as we often view changes
in our own viewpoints.

Beyond what we see
is a whole new perspective
that might live as true.

Mornings of dewdrops
bring refreshing scenes of life
even without rain.

A field of flowers
brings beauty to the moments
as our eyes perceive.

A mere blade of grass
becomes an ocean of life
as it shares its space.

Mind over matter
brings many to destruction
if matter’s too great.

A tree by itself
creates only its shadow
for its company.

Challenges of life
are what that help us to grow
and without stagnates.

Scenes of summertime
bring visions of November
as the seasons change.

Various rain clouds
have much more than that of rain,
for tornadoes thrive.

Counting the minutes
can create much impatience
as seconds grow long.

Autumn awaits us
with brilliantly colored leaves
to welcome winter.

Heartbeats within us
are as guides through turnstiles,
but some are asleep.

Cherishing moments
can create false memories
not so accurate.
