With Us In Spirit


Hello my friends

It’s a new day and a hour ahead of what it was
yesterday.  Yep,  if ya didn’t move your clocks
ahead an hour last night then I reckon that you
were late to everything today.  The weather up
this way has been on a warmish side and by the
look of my weather program it looks like we’ll
be in the mid 30’s to the lower 40’s this week as
well.  Of course there will be a few days that are
a slight colder and of course the nights still in
the below freezing temperature range,  but not
in the subzero.  By morning it’s supposed to be
18 F degrees.  Judy and I are doing well as are
the boys.  Benny and Rocky are as ornery as
ever.  Right now they’re sleeping in the floor
behind Judy and I.  It’s looking like we might
see spring a little earlier this year.  Of course
what we call spring,  there may still be some
snow on the ground,  but spring none the less 🙂
Right now it’s 36 F degrees at 6:44 PM and it
seems that the temperature has already begun
dropping.  There’s not been much going on at
the Pearce’s Place this passed week.  Nope,  it
has been fairly peaceful aside from our 2 boys
running around the house playing chase,  not to
mention barking at any noise they hear outside
that they think might concern us LOL.  That’s
mostly Benny.  Rocky will head off running to
where Benny is thinking that Benny is on to
something hehehe.  Most of the time though,
we think Benny is barking at ghosts namely
the ghost of Milo hehehe.  He seems to always
be looking up at Milo’s ashes for some reason
or another LOL.  Though sometimes he will
be looking at the front door and the only way
to get him to quit barking is to open it and
show him that nobody is there.  Then Benny
will make a mad dash in here while always
looking back to see if I’m behind him hehehe.
Yep,  this place has gone to the dogs and even
the ghost dogs it looks like LOL.  We can still
feel the presence of Milo from time to time 🙂
OK next topic.  Judy went to see her mom the
other day.  She is in a nursing home.  I think
they are planning on keeping her for a few
more weeks.  Actually I hope and pray that
they will one day soon admit her permanently.
She would be much better off.  Judy’s sister
and her hubby have been taking care of her
and it’s turned into more than they bargained
for.  Dennis and Trudy can’t go anywhere
together,  because they can’t leave her there
by herself.  She can’t walk and she’s blind.
Judy has gone from time to time to watch her
so that they can get out of the house together,
but that still doesn’t work too well,  being
I’m sure they would love to have more than
a few hours alone together.  So please keep
them in your prayers.  Our home will not
suffice a wheelchair or anything.  It’s kind
of small.  So OK,  next topic.  Monday of
last week we got a bit of snow and me and
the boys went out and played in it for a bit.
I even took a few videos of us.  The snow
is gradually melting due to the warm temps,
but there’s still some out there.  It might be
frozen solid,  but none the less still white 🙂
I got a couple of great videos of me and the
boys,  but one ended up with snow on the
lens.  You could still see the boys,  but it
was snowing so much that I couldn’t keep
the camera lens cleared LOL. I also took
a few pictures of them and some of me. We
had a great time playing together 🙂  I think
they had a better time than me though LOL.
I took my tripod outside and got a video of
us together.  Benny and Rocky were so
excited they could hardly contain their
enthusiasm.  Yes sir,  it looks like Benny
has a snow buddy to play with.  Though
I think they might both be a bit saddened
when the snow is all melted away hehehe.
I also love the snow.  I hate the aftereffects
of it,  because then it melts and re freezes
turning into that deadly slippery stuff
called ICE.  I do have cleats that attach
to the soles of my shoes,  but sometimes
I forget to attach them hehehe.  It looks
like the temperature has dropped a bit
since I began writing.  Now at 7:33 PM
it’s 32 F degrees.  I thank God for all of
the blessings that He has given Judy and
I.  My daughter and granddaughter that
were able to come up and spend Christmas
with us last year and our little boys Benny
and Rocky,  not to forget Milo that is still
with us in spirit.  I am hoping my daughter
can come up again soon.  LOL she said
she loved the snow and white Christmas
and all,  but the travel at that time of the
year was totally crazy.  She said she
might come up in the summer the next
time hehehe.  I love you Jamye and Sami.
Judy loves you too.  Last Christmas was
the best.  We will always treasure those
moments and relive them through the
many pictures and videos that we took.
Thank You God for all of the miracles
that You have placed into our lives and
thank You for all that You do for us each
day.  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 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 might
of stumbled on a decent title just a few
lines back.  Now let’s see if I can write
anything that makes any sense using it.
Here goes nothing!!!!!!

With Us In Spirit

The hearts of our loved ones
each day that’s within it
that have gone on Heavenward
are with us in spirit.
Time is but a fraction
of lives that we live
for with us in spirit
are angels to give.
Passed lives to present times
begin such a quest
to that great and special place
so Heavenly best.
Portions of our memories
might still recall wonders
things that we lived through
the good and the blunders.
Yet,  with us in spirit
our loved ones that passed,
are watching over you and I
as shadows to cast.
So don’t let your heart to
be torn apart,
for with us in spirit
are loved ones at heart.

There ya go.  I hope that made a least a little
sense to ya.  Also I hope my rambling didn’t
bore ya to death hehehe.  Yes I know I tend
to drift from 1 topic to the next without much
warning,  but hey,  that’s me hehehe.  Benny
has woken up and headed for the living room
I’m assuming to protect us or maybe just to
visit with Milo 🙂  It’s 8:00 PM now and I’m
getting hungry,  so I better hurry and finish
this so I can fix us something to eat.  I think
all of the leftovers are gone hehehe.  So Hmm,
is there anything I have forgotten to mention?
Oops,  it looks like our little boys have gotten
their second wind.  They’re right behind us
playing and now it looks like they’re wanting
treats hehehe.  Nope,  not now,  maybe in a
bit.  Judy just filled my glass with some more
orange juice.  I’ve gotten on an orange juice
binge hehehe.  Nothing ever stays with me
for any amount of time no matter what I
eat or drink,  but at least orange juice will
give me a little vitamin C that I need LOL.
My bro Mark Green is still needing your
prayers.  They’re going to have to do some
heart surgery on him,  but I have faith that
it will all be OK.  Me and him go way back
to the 1st grade in Oak Ciff.  So,  I guess
that’s about all I have for ya.  Now I think
I need 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 1 of them being sort of Christmassy.
I also wrote 22 more haiku or senryu for
all of the haiku lovers out there.  I hope I
wrote something that you like.  Now I
believe it’s time for me to begin my search
for that not so freaking elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a most joyful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and a
truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  OK now,
it’s time for me to try and find that ornery
off switch.  Hmm,  searching around the
room,  why I have no clue,  being that
the numskull has chosen once again to
hide behind my ADVAIR LOL.  You’ve
had all week to look for a place to hide,
for that matter a few years,  but you
still insist on hiding right in front of me.
Oh well 🙂 Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzz.

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

P.S. I am including a poem that I wrote
when I was 8 years old LOL.  It’s not great,
but it’s sort of cute hehehe

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+1 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Me in the 3rd grade
I’m not sure about some of the
wording,  but hey,  I was only
maybe 8 years old

A big alarm clock
for little boy blue
Write on it from Santa
my boy just for you
They may have a few toys,
but don’t have a bin.
A book and a ball
a top that will spin.
A soldiers cap for the
pipers son
you know last year
you brought him a drum
and twas rub-a-dub
till I thought I should fly.
So bring quiet presents
dear Santa goodbye

Scenes We See

The scenes we see
as time goes by
can become dreams
when life is dry.
Past to present
can make a road
that’s often found
with a heavy load.
Scenes recorded
within our brains
might seem as
some choo-choo trains.
Each with cars
connecting times
to scenic places
moments minds.
The scenes we see
might then become
minutes passing
a beating drum.
With but only
a moments time
is of the past.

Dawning Of Sunny Days

Amidst the dawning of sunny days
the sky is filled with sound.
Places are featured here and there
as the world goes around.
Magical moments come to life
as ticking time makes way,
while the tides of ocean scenes
display each night and day.
With but only a mere memory
the world can come alive
with daily windows found so clear
and often opened wide.
Scenes of wonder might become
a magical place with peace
amidst the dawning of sunny days
with Heaven’s great release.
Though some clouds might form above,
a sunny day is near
to bring to life a hopeful day
through Jesus love sincere.

Distant Phases

Ages Stages set in place
will find their own accord
distant phases ships a sailing
lives to climb aboard.
Mornings dawning comes to be
with distant phases scene
sometimes as a destination
maybe in-between.
Here to there and in and out
our pathways move on by
distant phases seeming sometimes
that they start to fly.
Oceans motions wave hello
as each day comes in stride
with the distant phases found
within an oceans tide.
Time becomes a book with words
that readers find so great
distant phases found within
another time and date.

Windows And Doors

The sights and sounds of then and there
might turn into a page
written by someone in another time
to put them all on stage.
Formed by minutes and hours too
the sights and sounds might be
windows and doors of moments time
within our history.
Those lines on faces mark a place
that some don’t recognize
until the years have found a way
to show in their own eyes.
Windows and doors will open wide
with good and bad alike
as we walk or run through time
to race a motorbike.
That motorbike might be just something
that you’ve sought to find,
but found your efforts oh so weak
within that point and time.

Lost Your Grip

When tiredness causes
you to fall
and life just seems
to stand too tall
you need to take
a little time
to find some rest
within your mind.
Maybe something
rocks your boat
and causes it
to cease to float.
It might be due
to weariness
you lost your grip
and need to rest.
Seek Lord Jesus
when you slip
or simply when you’ve
lost your grip.

A Rainbow Mind

As clouds come with raindrops
and form up above
an ocean of blessings is
filled full of love.
Maybe in the moments time
you might not see
a colorful rainbow with
time to agree.
A rainbow mind needs time
to become well fed
as growth shows the pathways
of new life ahead.
Seen through a bumpy road
clouds might appear
as raindrops of problems
from your yesteryear.
Morning gives a dawning of
new sights to find
allowing your troubles
to find a rainbow mind
Learning to let go of
the hurtful arrays
with a rainbow mind of
sought better days.

Scenes Of Wonder

Snow in a distant scene
seems Heaven sent
those scenes of wonder
with Christmas intent.
White fluffy snow found
in every sight,
those scenes of wonder
found to delight.
Heavenly snowflakes
here,  there and yonder
are oh so Christmassy
in scenes of wonder.
Blessings so Heavenly
sparkle and shine
as Christmas lights twinkle
with each found design.
So much to marvel at,
blessings appear
in scenes of wonder of
Christmas each year.

Before You Leave

We need each other
though most don’t agree
and so there is hatred
everywhere I see.
Don’t let someone’s hatred
to be all you find.
Look for some peaceful
in a prayerful type mind.
Don’t let your fighting
to go on through night,
for you might be wrong
when you think you are right.
Even if you did not
start what’s absurd
make peace my friend now
with a prayerful word.
Find peace and love
that God gave to you
and then before you leave
give it free and true.
Yet often leaving
is not what should be,
for a minute that’s passed
is just history.
Learn some forgiveness
through all that you weave
and make sure it’s right,
the time before you leave.

February Mind

January sunshine
is so faintly found
as there are clouds
with snow on the ground.
Time is a doorway
to open with glee
with a February mind
and new thing to see.
March then becomes
that spring dance to find,
yet I’m still stuck
with my February mind.
Even through the windows
I find the same thing
a February mind
that should be of spring.
Patterns are changing
as each day prevails
with my February mind
and all the details.

Threads Of A Needle

Winding around fabrics of time
our lives might fall prey
to the threads of a needle
in an alarming array.
Turnstiles of a journeyman
making ends meet
are the patterns of a moment
that lifetimes accrete.
The threads of a needle
we often will mull,
finding through a time frame
that our needle’s dull.
A persons own storyboard
might not attain
the threads of a needle
that leads them to fame.
Our threads that we’ve woven
can one day change shape
as the needle is bent then
for you to escape.
The threads of a needle
might change up the style
that once was depression
to a God given smile.

for Mar 12,  2016

Beginnings begin
whether we like it or not,
so just do your best.

Lifestyles of some
might inflict pain on others
and not be aware.

Lost in perception
one might seem as a mere weed,
but be a flower.

As the sky changes
it gives us variations
of daytime to night.

Storms might seem brutal,
but they have a need in life
just as a flower.

Short-winded people
might fall way behind the rest,
but one day get there.

Lost in a labyrinth
the one that does not give up
will find his way out.

Molecules of air
are what that we cannot see,
but they are still there.

As the wind will blow
it often makes a pathway
that our eyes can see.

Beyond tomorrow
holds more than we can surmise,
for tomorrow’s guessed.

Believing in self
is a perplexing issue
found in a doubter.

Without a breath
our stride has no foundation,
for life can’t exist.

Many think nowhere
is no place with a meaning,
but it has purpose.

March winds blow briskly
as the clouds overhead drift by
from day unto night.

An echo of life
might be perceived as patterns,
but echoes will change.

Losing a loved one
causes many much sadness,
but Heaven is love.

Life in the fast lane
will surely wear down our hearts
and shorten our lives.

Time in a bubble
prevents learning anything
other than to breathe.

In the winds of change
lives the past and the present,
seeking the future.

Gridlock of journeys
can flow freely once again
with the help of God.

Having a handful
will sometimes seem as too much,
but be what you need.

Flowers are blessings
often in the form of weeds
to beautify life.
