The Chances


Hello my friends

It’s wet and cold today, but not freezing 🙂 Nope, it’s
only 36 F degrees right now at 2:30 PM. The boys and
me are just hanging together as we do every Sunday 🙂
I have been still waiting for my test results and it’s just
about to drive me crazy. I had a doctors appointment
last Thursday, but my doctor was out sick and another
doctor saw me and removed my stiches, but left in the
packing just in case they find that the tumor is cancer.
She read my doctors notes and told me the test results
haven’t come in yet. It seems everything in Maine is
SLOW. I would just like to know one way or the other
if it is or isn’t cancer. At least then I would know sort
of what to plan ahead for. Anyways, that’s the way it
is up here in Maine. The boys have been good. They’re
both in here now. I just gave them some duck jerky.
That should pacify them for a while LOL. Today and
tomorrow is supposed to be above freezing, but then
Monday night drop back down to the teens. It’s weird
weather for up here. We’re loving our new bed. We
have more room and my feet don’t hang off the end of
it LOL. There’s more room for Benny and Milo also 🙂
They do from time to time lay with us, but not when
we’re getting ready to sleep. Only when we’re watching
TV. Of course there are a few exceptions hehehe such
as we’re just gonna take a nap. Then we don’t mind
them laying with us. Benny just now started barking at
the neighbors and Milo ran to see what it was about
thinking mom might be home. Nope, it’s way too early
for her to be coming home LOL. She won’t be home
until late tonight when Trudy gets home from Walmart.
So, now Benny is leaning up against my leg and Milo
is lying in his bed. These boys are something else 🙂
We’ve still got tons of snow outside. Of course after
today and tomorrow with the above freezing temps
I’m sure the snow will turn to a hard layer of ice and
I don’t care much for that. We might get some rain
tonight and tomorrow, but Monday night it might be
snowing. Of course it’s just a forecast/prediction and
in many views a mere guess of the weather hehehe.
It’s rare that the forecast is spot on 🙂 It seems that
Benny got tired of leaning up against my leg and has
decided to lie in his doggy bed. Actually neither of the
beds has a name on it. They switch off often and lie
in the one that isn’t occupied or the one that’s closest
to them, etc, etc, etc LOL. I don’t know what we’d
do without these boys. It seems as though they have
always been in our lives even though we’ve only had
them since 2012 hehehe. We got Benny in March of
that year and Milo in October, but they act just like
brothers that have always been. They are lying head
to head right now as they often do hehehe. They often
lie side by side. So, what else is going on around this
place? Not a whole lot! We’re hoping to be able to
afford to get our driver side car door fixed so it can
be opened from the outside. It’s gonna cost us $606
dollars. That’s our plans for when we get paid next
month. Hopefully our heating oil won’t run out LOL.
We’re sitting at a half a tank right now. If we didn’t
have problems, I would think something was wrong 🙂
I know God will make sure we have what we need as
He has always, but it doesn’t stop me from worrying.
LOL I guess I’m a worry wart. That’s what mom and
dad used to call me when I was a kid. I almost said
little boy, but I don’t think I was ever really little LOL.
Looking back at a few old pictures I was bigger than
my sister when I was 1 year old and she was 5 hehehe.
I always had big arms. I wish I had more pictures
of us as a family, but nobody in my family was much
into taking pictures. My dad took a few, but that’s
about all. It would of been nice if we had owned a
video cam, but then again thinking about that LOL,
maybe not hehehe. I wouldn’t want videos of me like
what I see of other families floating around hehehe
and yes I did find myself in some weird predicaments
as many children do 🙂 I guess I’m glad we didn’t
own a video cam hehehe. The temperature has gone
up a few more degrees now. It’s now 38 F degrees
at 4 PM. It’s supposed to be 45 degrees by morning
and then start dropping back down gradually and by
Monday evening be below freezing again. Weird,
yes I would say so LOL. Then for the rest of the
week it’s supposed to be in the teens and single
digits hehehe. It might get up to the lower 20’s but
that’s all I see in my weather program 🙂 Of course
some snow will be falling here and there hehehe as
always. It seems even the days that snow isn’t in the
forecast, it finds a way to fall. My stomach is talking
to me saying “FEED ME” 🙂 I guess it’s almost time
for me to be fixing me and the boys something to eat.
It seems that the duck jerky that I gave them a while
ago is still sufficing them. They aren’t bugging me
for something to eat LOL. They’re sound asleep 🙂
Milo is snoring quietly thank God hehehe. It gets
hard to think when his snore turns into a loud roar 🙂
I thank God for all of the blessings He has put in my
life. I am grateful for all of the chances that He has
given me to let me turn my life around. I pray that
I have a few more years to share with you, but if
not, then be it His Will be done. I’m sure that if my
time is up, then I’ve done all that He wanted me to
do. I’ve already lived longer than the doctors had
predicted with all of my health issues. The hands of
the clock of time tick on with the moments that we
are to live and then find peace in Heaven. I hope
that you are doing the best you can with your life,
for you might be gone tomorrow because tomorrow
isn’t guaranteed. Our actions here on Earth can be
as echoes in lives still living, so make them your
very best echoes. Now, I reckon it’s time for me to
be taking my little journey back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a decent word or
phrase that I can use for the title for today’s brand
new poem. So, it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I found a decent title and now after
checking I see that it has not been used yet, but
it’s being used today hehehe.

The Chances

The days and weeks
through timeless phase
provide the chances
many ways.
Things we’ve done wrong
passed and gone
the chances come
from dusk to dawn.
We might be troubled
from our ages.
but the chances
God arranges.
Pages turning
flipping through
the chances come
to me and you.
We might be found
with ending phase
with no chances
then to gaze.
So take heed now
look and see
the chances now
for good to be.

Well, there ya go. I hope you understood the poem and
maybe even liked it 🙂 Also, I hope my rambling didn’t
bore you to sleep hehehe. It’s 5:30 PM and 39 degrees.
Not too bad. There’s not much else to tell you so I guess
it’s time to tell you what I tell you almost every week and
that is, I wrote some more poems and haiku yesterday 🙂
Yep, 10 more poems with 1 of them being a Christmas
poem. Also I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like. Now I believe I need to begin my search for that
hardly elusive off switch, but not before I wish you a most
wonderful God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you
and we do too. Now, where is that dad gum off switch
trying to hide this week hehehe? I see ya you silly little
whippersnapper. Trying to make like the second hand
of my watch don’t work too well being you are a little out
of sync with the original second hand LOL. Ya look sort
of like a lazy blur hehehehehehehe. Anyways, Gotcha,
see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Winters Ice

The chill of winter
comes so cold
winters ice
that times unfold.
Many rivers
lakes and ponds
winters ice
is dusk to dawn.
Many snowflakes
might be falling
giving winter
its own calling,
but with snowflakes
falling down
winters ice
is all around.
Some icicles
hanging true
winters ice
with wondrous view.
sights are seen
winters ice
a snowbound dream.
Then and now with
winters ice
pages display
so precise.
Moments gathered
to and fro
some with ice
and some with snow.

An Endless Sky

With clouds found floating
the sky gives way
to a seemingly
endless day.
Endless rhythms
an endless sky
The blue sky rises
into view
when the clouds are
found as few.
Scenes transposing
on the stage
an endless sky
will turn a page.
come alive
to help an endless
sky survive.
It’s with clouds
of fluffy form
that an endless
sky is born.
Many pictures
become true
an endless sky
of thereunto.
Painted with some
oceans depth
an endless sky
will take a breath.
Breathing in
the days ahead
an endless sky
is story’s read.
Word by word
the book of time
shows an endless
sky divine.

When Christmas Passes

As December moves on
from now to the past
many find Christmas
as shadows that casts.
Not with the joyful,
but with the pain
coming from wrongful
ways to attain.
When Christmas passes
it should live and breathe
that of our Savior
which we should believe.
Yet many people
think only of money
and how to buy things
maybe just funny.
Christmas should live on
as wonderful dreams
displayed by blessings of
Heavenly streams.
Poured down as waters
it should then unfold
when Christmas passes
with joyful behold.
Scattered with memories
to all the masses
there should be heartfelt
when Christmas passes.

Before The Dawn

While night shows stars
that twinkle so bright
the soon to come
is mornings light.
Before the dawn
the night displays
all it can
for one last gaze.
Nighttime’s chance
to show its stuff
minutes count
till not enough.
Before the dawn
it breathes a sigh
starlit wonders
in the sky.
Even moonlight
falls from view
when dawn breaks
to show anew.
The stars at night
will twinkle on
as best they can
before the dawn.

Never Forgotten

When life has ended
new begins
never forgotten
like the winds.
The memories
of when and where
become alive
in then and there.
Never forgotten
time moves on
dusk to dusk
and dawn to dawn.
So many ventures
live and breathe
within the time
our memories.
Never forgotten
as death is found
our memories
are still around.

Circle Of Life

Looking past outwards
and looking inside
the circle of life
becomes as outside.
Seeing the truthful
sometimes hard to see
while often hidden
from you and from me.
The circle of life
is our found perception
as many find
a daily deception.
Sometimes revolving
much closer yet far
not realizing
who that they are.
The circle of life
needs many to find
how we’re connected
to all of mankind.

While I’m sitting
here to day
I’m remembering
far away.
Peering into
passed days glance
I’m remembering
second chance.
All the misery
I went through
I’m remembering
better view.
I can see now
my own choices
guiding me to
less rejoices.
Now while sitting
here I see
how I found
my misery.
Yet those days are
gone away
while remembering
gone astray.
Today gives chances
learned from then
while remembering
where I’ve been.
Lessons learned
from passed mistakes
helps me find
a new day breaks.
the lessons learned
becomes more clear
how they were earned.

The Winds Of Time

The echoes of lifestyles
become a design
found as the pathways
of the winds of time.
Scenes become journeys
with our memories
as the winds of time
of oceans and seas.
Stages performed on
of lifetimes perception
finds winds of time
with a bit of deception.
So many envision
their lives in a story
written by authors
a little bit gory.
Yet it just might be
their own view of time
and not seeing clearly
what good there’s to find.
The winds of time
are blowing around
giving so many
the best to be found.
Yet it needs us to
look now and see
the winds of time
the best they can be.
Find all the good times
and lock on a smile
as the winds of time
blow on for a while.

Soon Is Gone

Life is counted
by a few
soon is gone
with just one two.
Counted essence
many find
soon is gone
with time to time.
Less perception
becomes more.
Soon is gone
comes through the door.
When now’s gone
the passed is viewed
soon is gone
what’s misconstrued.
Often when we
lose someone
soon is gone
is time’s begun
Don’t let life to
pass you by.
Soon is gone
the day we die.
Show your passion
love so true
soon is gone
might become you.
Let your heartbeat
find some peace
soon is gone
with great release.
Find the blessings
time to time
soon is gone
will still remind.
God’s Son Jesus
will not be
soon is gone
but found so free.
Moments Breathing
we live on
even when our
soon is gone.

Walking On Ice

With winter comes chills
and cold winds a blowing
even a few days
found often snowing.
Driveways are frozen
to pay up a price
slipping and sliding
while walking on ice.
With winters mornings
the sunshine will glare
reflecting on white snow
found everywhere.
The driveway turns slicker
as each day is found
walking on ice then
finds me on the ground.
Slipping and sliding
on ice not so smooth
becomes as a journey
to win or to lose.
For when I’m falling
it is not so nice,
so now I wear cleats when
walking on ice.

for Jan 17, 2015

Life finds mysteries
hidden in some strange places
that many never look.

Without a heartbeat
our lives cannot become true
and we can’t exist.

The ghostly image
of our lives after we’ve died
can live in others.

When time finds its end
the beginning starts again
with another page.

Watching a child grow
you might see bits of yourself
within their journey.

Wondering lifestyles
finds many asking questions
about others lives.

Limits to true love
are often just misconceived
due to importance.

Two worlds will collide
as true love meets destiny
and it’s accepted.

Beyond our eyesight
holds the dreams that could come true
if we’d just believe.

Heaven awaits us
through the love of God’s Own Son.
Jesus is the key.

Patience for now
can show better tomorrows
as things go their way.

Winter brings snowflakes
along with some icicles
to be decorations.

Love finds some problems
when it’s not what we’re needing,
but just what we want.

The essence of time
becomes an inconvenience
when in a hurry.

Searching through some clouds
you might find some memories
painted in the sky.

Storms of yesterday
often live inside our mind
becoming baggage.

Nobody’s sometime
is the same as another,
for views are within.

Mornings arrival
brings new pages to write on
with our new choices.

Meaningless banter
can become a bad disease
that angers others.

Painting with actions
creates a good or bad sight
with you as the brush.

Allowing others
to tempt you to destruction
could cause your demise.

Emotional doors
will often open and close
at the wrong times.
