Near The Same


Hello my friends

OK, so another week has passed and winter
is bearing its teeth at us in the shape of cold
and snow. Of course me being the weird one,
I don’t mind the cold and snow. I especially
don’t mind the snow. I love to watch it snow
and see the beauty unfold right before my eyes.
Yep, I guess you could say I’m a wintertime
guy. I don’t care much for summer being I
can’t handle the heat. Thank God it doesn’t
get as hot up here as it does in Texas where
I’m from 🙂 We’ve got a winter wonderland
outside right now. It snowed a little more
yesterday (Saturday). Me and the boys had
a great time playing in the snow. I got a few
pictures of us that I’ll put in the stationery.
Yep, last week was pretty good. Judy went
over to her sister’s house yesterday and they
did their craft night. Judy made a beautiful
objet d’art that she hung on the wall beside
her. We took the boys to the vet and they
got their shots and claws clipped. Also we
got them registered. So they’re all set for
another year or so 🙂 It seems Benny and
Rocky almost weigh the same 25 pounds 🙂
They are pert near the same size and all.
Yep, and when they both wanna lie in my
lap at the same time it does get a bit hard
to breathe hehehe. Judy snapped a few
pictures of them both lying in my lap the
other day and a few with Rocky and I
together as we both nodded off while in
the chair LOL. My neck never forgave
me for that one hehehe. Right now it’s
nice and peaceful in here as I write, being
Judy has gone back to bed to rest for a
while and she took the boys with her so
they would not be bothering me. They
are both lying at the end of the bed and
Judy is sound asleep. I’m supposed to
wake her up when North Woods Law
comes on at 8 PM. I’ve got a enough
time to get this journal finished before
then I think, It’s 6:42 right now hehehe.
It is almost too quiet in here. I’m used
to the boys trying to get my attention 🙂
It looks like though that they have both
gone to sleep as well. I walked through
to go to the bathroom and Rocky raised
his head, but then he laid it right back
down and closed his eyes. Benny didn’t
even open his eyes LOL. They don’t
get much sleep due to me and of course
I don’t get much sleep either hehehehe,
being I spend 85 percent of my time
going to the restroom LOL. That’s
life without a colon or colostomy bag.
Not much sleep, but after 2 decades
of it, I’ve grown to accept it and cat
nap when I can, which explains me
sleeping in my chair holding Rocky 🙂
Life could always be worse, but I’ve
got so many blessings here with me
I cannot count them. They make my
problems easier to deal with. NOT
easy by no means, but easier hehehe.
Judy loves me truly even with all of
my health issues. The boys love me
unconditionally. What more could a
man want? Yep, I count myself as
very lucky and blessed even with all
of the problems. Judy and I have our
moments that things go astray, but
we’ve learned to forgive and look at
the good. I love her not only as my
wife, but as my best friend. We are
there for each other when one of us
is having a bad day. The boys also
help us with their little wagging tails
and smiling faces. It’s not about the
things you haven’t got, because if you
look around you might find you have
more than many. Of course I know of
many that are totally hurting. I wish
I could help them, but that’s where
prayer comes in and God sends what
they need. Maybe not what they’re
wanting, but what they need. I have
had many times in my life that if I
had gotten what all I was wanting
I would have wound up dead, but
then as I look back I saw where God
gave me what I needed at the time
to get where I needed to be. Though
much was about me accepting His
help and not just sidestepping His
will. Yes sir, I’ve screwed up more
times than I can count, but I lived
to,learn, thank God. Don’t become
so stubborn that you look passed
the will of God. Now I guess 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 good word
or phrase that I can use for the title
of today’s brand new poem. So it’s
away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
found a good title near the beginning
of my rambling hehehe. Now to see
if I can do anything with it LOL 😉
Here goes nothing, hehehe maybe.

Near The Same

The days ahead
that times attain
might at times
seem near the same.
Yet the ticking
clock on the wall
might show the times
much different than all.
For near the same
a heart might beat
without the sight
of their defeat.
The truth is found
sometimes inside
where near the same
will choose to hide.
Life brings portions
lose and gain
maybe seeming
near the same.
Yet a lifestyle
here and there
near the same
does not compare.
We’re all different
you and I
and near the same
does not apply.
We have struggles
times record
and near the same
needs our sweet Lord.
Jesus walked on
through His life
near the same
with pain and strife.
So remember
now and then
that near the same
is within Him.
He understands
your day and time
for near the same
His day did find.
Let Him help you
find some peace
near the same
through His release.

OK, there ya go. I hope it made a little
sense to ya. Yeppers, I can remember
times that I felt so alone that I would be
amongst many people and still feel alone.
It helps when you are not around others
just to be there and not being happy with
being with yourself. I know that feeling
all too well. Though years have passed
and I’ve learned to allow others to know
me. Let others to know you and don’t
hide behind a wall of shame. Hehehe
Sorry, It seems I took off on the road
to Rambles Ville again HUH hehehehe.
Ok so I have a prayer request for my
sister Peggy. Her cancer came back
and she is going through treatments
again. Please continue to pray for her.
I love ya sis and if you ever need me,
give me a call. I know I’m many miles
away, but I am with you in spirit 🙂
Ok now, I reckon 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 one of them being
to my beloved brown eyed wife and
another a kind of sort of Christmas
poem hehehe. 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 it’s
time for me to be searching for that
not so 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 to find that cantankerous off
switch that is the worst and hiding
than I’ve ever seen or not seen LOL.
Where Oh where can you be hiding
ya little bugger. LOL I think I see
ya. Trying to hide behind my tissues
that I used to stop the bleeding from
my broken nose huh. Well you need
to change your color to red then LOL.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Oh yea, I forgot to tell you that I
tripped over Rocky Thursday and I fell
into a folding chair and broke my nose.
It bled all over the place. Good thing
is, that I broke my nose a long time ago
and I since then have had a little trouble
breathing through my nose, but it seems
that this fall has reset my nose and I can
BREATHE without any trouble YEAH 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Disturbed Reality

When time finds conclusions
through all that we see,
the moments that display
show disturbed reality.
Seconds we have counted
might seem to unwind
and become disturbed reality
as times on our mind.
The truth is often found
in days later read
with memories awakened
of what’s done and said.
The true disturbed reality
is often in a dream
that turns into nightmares
with times in-between.
So to find some peace in
those times that you see
find the lessons within the
disturbed reality.

Beyond Tomorrow

Today brings a glimpse of
tomorrow’s to see,
but often that tomorrow
is not what will be.
For even beyond tomorrow
the changes are made
with the way that things go
in life’s lemonade.
For beyond tomorrow is
time continued changing
with our previous thoughts
and how it’s rearranging.
Even the weather man
cannot truly say
that tomorrow and beyond
will be a great day.
For it might show sunshine
or raindrops or snow
when on beyond tomorrow
the minutes bestow.
So don’t let your worrying
of all tomorrow’s sights
to become all you see
as nows days and nights.

Snowy Skies

As winter continues
displaying so true,
its own arrangement
of all that we view,
the skies fill with wonder
with snow falling down,
landing in the places
without not a sound.
Yet the winds blowing
dispersing the flakes
land near some children
where a snowman awakes.
Then as the snowman
stands big and strong
the snowy skies find then
winds continue on.
Scenes are created
as Maine’s apple pies
some as snow ice cream
from snowy skies.

Storms Will Cease

Portions of storm clouds
might display fear,
but then some others
have a rainbow appear.
True that in a storm
you might be afraid,
of all of the things that
a storm might degrade.
Yet storms will cease
as time goes its way
and then with the sunshine
be a brand new day.
Yes, we will suffer
and yes we will fall,
but God sends His angels
to watch over all.
We might not see them
those angels of love,
but they might be friends
sent from Lord God above.
They might be someone
you see every day
to help in the moments
that you’re feeling gray.
So yes storms will cease
and rainbows will come
with the strength of Lord God
through Jesus His Son.

The Simple Times

Those time long ago
when I was so young
I saw a different day
with a new setting sun.
A saw many moments
riding my bike
doing all the things
of many alike.
Playing with my friends
as each day would pass
the simple times went by
way too fast.
Walking through the woods
nowhere intended,
seeking for a sight
of pathways extended.
Those nights sat out looking
up at the moon
while hearing whip-poor-wills
singing their tune.
Even an owls song
is sung as if rhymes
with the sound of the wind
in the simpler times.
I remember clearly
those times long ago
the simpler things
that now does not know.
Now’s just confusion
with things that I see,
not the simpler times
from my history.
I often dream of
those greater designs
found in my childhood
the simple times.
A toy truck to play with
not a Xbox or Wii
and not a playstation,
I climbed a tree.
Yes the simple times
were playing out doors
not on a gameboy
sat in the floors.
I played a few games
Yahtzee and Uno
along with some Checkers
as time seemed to flow.
Those times I remember
now live in my heart
yes, the simple times
were the best work of art.
The days now display
only technology
with playstation, gameboy
Xbox and Wii.
With many others
that come into frame
losing the perspective
from where that we came.

Door To The Heart

Pathways to true love,
Heaven shall start
entered with God’s Will,
door to the heart.
When through a heartbreak
some baggage is gained
God can bring peaceful,
timeless attained.
The door to the heart
is a wonderful thing,
found as a blessing
joyful to sing.
Time might show sadness
as days move along,
but time can begin your
sight of new dawn.
Allowing God’s blessings
to do the best part
will allow some true love
in the door to the heart.

Winter To Spring

Winter brings stories
of Christmastimes joy
that of a little girl
or little boy.
Winter brings phases
of seasons delight
glimmers of snowfall
each day and night.
Winter brings changes
found in the phases
then comes springtime
with mornings daisies.
Winter to spring is
time counted on
found as the snowflakes
until they’re gone.
Each day with wonders
paintings of God
winter to spring needs
greatest applaud.
For as the seasons
show birds that sing
there are the blessings
winter to spring.

Lost In Your Eyes

My heart starts racing
each time I see
your brown eyes gazing
right here at me.
I get lost in your eyes
and lose track of time
as I’m found gazing
yours within mine.
Your eyes just glisten
with starlight so sweet
that is like candy
that I wish to eat.
Time ceases moving
with my eyes on you.
You make the seasons
much greater the view.
I find your beauty
that of the skies
when I am here now
lost in your eyes.

To Judy Ann Pearce
From William Earl Pearce II

Clinging To Then

Past is a story
that many hold to,
not allowing now days
into their view.
Some make yesterdays
all that they see
when the future holds more
than their history.
The future can grow
a better display
from what you do
in now and today.
Clinging to then
will just hold you back
and not allow now
to finds ways on track.
So release yesterdays
heartbreak and sin,
for baggage grows larger
clinging to then.

Left-Ways Meets Right

Directions perception
of day unto night
find their connections
left-ways meets right.
Time becomes seconds
minutes are counted
left -ways meets right as
more are surmounted.
So many portholes
open and close
leaving the choices
many have chose.
Each scene of fragments
finds its own place
within the time frame
of its time and space.
Life is a doorway
that goes day to night
giving the choices
left-ways meets right.

for Jan 15, 2016

Life is a journey
that finds many perceptions
as time moves along.

As springtime arrives
it shows life awakening
in colors abloom.

Fragrance of winter
is of a cold morning breeze
often with snowflakes.

A lavender sky
comes as the days expressions
from clouds far away.

Lost in a circle
that seems as never-ending
might have some lessons.

Living in a dream
might awaken some nightmares
in reality.

Destined emotions
often come as confusion
to describe ourselves.

A bluebonnets bloom
is a Texas memory
that lives in my heart.

A field of flowers
becomes a great photograph
that ones have taken.

Beyond the forest
lives an unknown desire
that holds mysteries.

A free floating leaf
finds its home in the distance
landing on the ground.

When closing a door
it does not end the chances,
but allows others.

Many descriptions
of our problems to others
might seem as pointless.

A billowy cloud
can turn dark in an instance
with raindrops to fall.

A wormhole of space
might unlock a mystery
beyond perception.

Sitting in a field
some aromas of flowers
might engulf your mind.

A true friend of time
will stay your friend no matter
what life throws your way.

Pets that passed on
wait for us at Rainbow Bridge
to leave for Heaven.

The roads we travel
might have some misdirection’s
that lead us astray.

Nowhere is somewhere
being wherever you are
is surely somewhere.

Losing a loved one
gives a way for their spirit
to be where you are.

A dogs compassion
might not be perceived by us,
but they understand.
