Entertaining To You


Hello my friends
This is a special 24 poem edition

The sun is shining brightly today,  but it’s
still a bit on the cool side for spring LOL.
This morning it was about 12 F degrees.
I was finally able to order us some heating
oil Monday and we got it Thursday but our
furnace isn’t working.  I’m guessing that
we may not of completely ran out fuel
when it quit a month ago.  The furnace
may have just quit working LOL.  But,
now we have 50 gallons of heating oil for
sure,  but our landlord has been unable
to get our furnace operating again.  He
got a hold of a furnace repairman,  but
he never showed up Friday or Saturday.
Our water froze last Saturday night,  but
I was able to get it thawed by opening
up all of the water faucets to release the
pressure.  The water would of frozen
again Sunday night because once again
it got down to 8 F degrees,  but I left the
water running slightly and that kept it
from freezing.  Now us in the bathroom,
that’s another story LOL,  Brrrrrrrrrr.
That toilet gets mighty cold when there
ain’t no heat.  We have a few portable
radiator heaters,  but we only use them
in the PC room where I am now and
our bedroom.  The rest of the house can
freeze.  It’s not worth a 200+ dollar light
bill LOL.  So we’re hoping that the guy
makes it maybe tomorrow to get it fixed.
Other than that,  things are pretty well.
Benny and Rocky are still being,  well 🙂
Benny and Rocky hehehe.  They keep
each other entertained LOL.  Though
they do love for us to get in the middle
of it with them.  They love attention 🙂
Our little homestead is filled with many
different forms of entertainment hehehe.
It might not be entertaining to you,  but
it keeps us happy.  Judy is doing well.
We went shopping for knickknacks for her
at the Dollar Tree last Monday.  Yep,
loaded up with knickknacks for her to do
creating on craft night at her sister’s
house.  The 3rd Saturday of every month
her and the rest of the girls get together
and have craft night over at Judy’s twin
sister’s house.  On those nights it’s a
guys night with me and the boys hehehe.
Yep Benny and Rocky hang out with
dear old daddy LOL.  I will often play
with them either inside or outside in the
field 🙂  That’s if of course I am able to.
Here lately my feet have been aching
and too much pain to run with them in
the field,  but they’re hurting a little less
now,  so field trip here we come hehehe.
Maybe tomorrow.  It’d be a bit too late
to go today.  Today is beginning to look
like spring sort of.  It’s 39 F degrees and
that’s spring for up here hehehe.  It’s
supposed to be a little warmer tomorrow.
Maybe in the lower 40’s 🙂  The rest of
the week looks as though it might even
get up to the upper 40’s and lower 50’s 🙂
Of course most of the nights will still be
below freezing LOL.  Still,  that’s a sure
sign that springtime is here.  The snow
is melting away. There’s still some in
places where the sun don’t shine,  but for
the most part it has diminished greatly.
I think the boys are missing it though 🙂
They both love to play in the snow,  a lot.
I’ve spent quite a bit of time chatting with
my friends on Facebook.  Sometimes it
gets stressful though,  being so many
want to chat with me LOL.  What can
I say,  I love people and if I can bring
a smile to them and help their day to be
much better,  then that is what I will do.
I do though have to cease time to time,
being I want to spend time with Judy
and the boys.  Judy and I have a lot of
favorite TV programs that we love to
watch together.  She has begun writing
poetry and stories again.  I like to see
her putting her gift to work.  That is
how we found each other.  We are both
writers 🙂  I can’t wait to get her new
book.  It should be published in the next
week or so.  It though will be only for
adults for it is rated R,  but I loved it
as I proofread it for her.  So,  what else
is going on around The Pearce’s Place?
Well,  to be honest,  not much hehehe.
We live a very quiet lifestyle aside from
2 dogs getting excited from time to time
and making racket hehehe.  Judy fixed
me some hot cocoa just a minute ago 🙂
Mmmmm good.  I had to wait for it to
cool a bit though, lest I burn my tonsils 🙂
I do have some sad news from Tuesday.
My grandmother passed away.  Her
funeral was Thursday.  It was a grave
side service.  Unfortunately I could not
be there due to my health issues and of
course finances.  My daughter offered
to pay my way,  but it would of been a
race to get there and would of cost me
over a 1000 dollars to be there on a next
day flight.  Plus I would of had to have
someone pick me up at the airport being
I haven’t driven there in over 20 years.
I’m sure it has changed a ton since I’ve
been to DFW and a 1 eyed guy has no
business driving there anyways.  It’s OK,
my grandmother was no longer in that
body.  It was surely just a shell,  for her
spirit had gone from it and is now up in
Heaven with her husband my Pawpaw.
Grandmother was 108 years old when
she passed.  Keep my mom and sister
Peggy as well as the rest of the family in
your prayers.  I’m sure my mom is at
peace with her moms passing because
both her and I knew that Grandmother
was not happy.  She had always been a
hard worker.  She never cooked for one
person.  Hehehe she always cooked for
an army whether there were 2 people
or 20.  She and Pawpaw also had their
own garden of which they never went
to the grocery store other than to buy
something they could not grow like
flour and sugar or even eggs.  I had a
few chickens,  but not near enough to
suffice her cooking LOL.  Anyways
Grandmother is now watching over us
as Judy and I continue our lives up here
in this 6 month winter wonder land 🙂
Now I believe I have rambled quite
enough and I need to now take my little
quest 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.  Ok so just a
few lines down from the beginning it
looks like I may have found a decent
title,  but now I’ve gotta see if I can
put any words together that make any
sense using it LOL.  Here goes……

Entertaining To You

What you might find exciting then
might not be as to others
for what so many count as boring
is fun with our own brothers.
Then within a minutes time
what’s entertaining to you
might be but just a boring time
that others will go through.
The season winter in its frame
might make you feel real low,
but it might be real entertaining
to ones that love the snow.
Our personalities and desires
often find conflicts
of what’s entertaining to you and me
and what our life depicts.
The turnstiles of so many views
are swinging back and forth
discerning what that’s good and bad
to find within their course.
Yet what’s boring to another
might be entertaining to you
as we each live our uniqueness
in what all we do.

OK so there ya go 🙂  I hope that came out
making at least a little bit of sense to you 🙂
It’s been a weird week for me these passed
few days.  LOL I actually wrote 23 poems
and then one on request from a friend for
me to write him a poem about him using his
name LOL.  Sheesh my brain went wacky 🙂
His name is long. He lives in Accra, Ghana.
He’s been a friend of mine for a long time.
I may not put them all in,  but I’ll decide
that in a moment,  but first I’ve gotta make
sure I have not forgotten anything hehehe.
Well it’s 37 F degrees now at 6:30 PM and
it looks like it might be going down more.
It’s supposed to be 16 F degrees by early
Monday morning.  Still not too bad LOL.
So I reckon it’s time to tell you what I tell
you almost every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku,  but as I said
I sort of over did it on the poems hehehe.
Yeppers I wrote 24 poems with 2 of them
being sort of Christmassy and 1 being to
a real good friend of mine.  I also wrote
once again 22 haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  When I told Judy I was
thinking of posting all of the poems,  she
said just tell them that this is a special
edition LOL.  And so I will post all of
the poems.  Talk about tons to read LOL.
Ok so now I believe it’s time for me to
be searching for that confounded 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 is that confounded
off switch hiding this week?   Searching
high and low,  AHA,  I see you ya little
varmint.  Trying to hide behind my cup
of hot chocolate might have worked if
I wasn’t still drinking it ya silly thing 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S.  I also wrote a poem to my Judy as
well as a poem about my Grandmother
titled Farewell And Hello 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+14 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Lunar Scenery

Night brings its fancy
to display in the skies
that many dreamers
see as a true prize.
True lunar scenery
finds ways to become
the echoes of nighttime
as a hearts beating drum.
Displayed with darkness
as stars twinkle light
the scenery becomes
the prize of the night.
Then as the moonlight
comes shining on down
the lunar scenery
is seen all around.
Some as the shadows
that frolic and play
in lunar scenery
before break of day.
Then as the Earth turns
it displays so bright
the lunar scenery
with the end of the night.

That Season So Fine

November brings us
that December time
found within Christmas
that season so fine.
Each brand new snowflake
that falls down to Earth
reminds me of Jesus
and His wondrous birth.
That season of winter
that comes in with snow
and then some magic
from Christmas to show.
Yes that great season
has blessings in time
that come from Christmas
that season so fine.
Then as the days move
and time ticks away
that season so fine
shows that wondrous array.
Snowflakes in pictures
that ones memorize
often are falling
from those Christmas skies.
Then as the children
awaken to see,
they might find magic
up under their tree.
Gifts from old Santa
that he left to find
Christmas with joyful
that season so fine.

Effervescent Eyes

This one with such passion
has true love to grow
as time is found ticking
with more that I know.
Her effervescent eyes
that twinkle as they do
are soft brown and wondrous
with love that’s so true.
Days are with journeys
as a God given prize
effervescent moments
with effervescent eyes.
The light of the world finds
her and I together,
her effervescent eyes
forever and ever.
Echoes of our heartbeats
are that of a dream
her effervescent eyes
and me down a stream.
Floating down a river
as it twist and it turns
those effervescent moments
with love filled concerns.
Her effervescent eyes
of a soft brown array
fill me with passion
we share every day.

New Beginnings

Time is gathered,
hours are cast
new beginnings
found from the past.
Flowers of springtime
after the snow
bring new beginnings
to come all aglow.
Seasons of wonder
found in our thoughts
display the patterns
time frames are tossed.
Brand new beginnings
give way to styles
within a giggle
and then some of smiles.
Time is now showing
days with their endings
displaying chances
for new beginnings

Themes Of Miles

Counted are minutes,
counted are styles.
Counted are oceans
with themes of miles
Nautical value
with waves coming in
themes of miles
show echoes begin.
Remembered moments
counted so true
blessings so wondrous
found in my view.
Themes of miles
united arrays
with my grandparents
those wonderful days.
Time becomes patterns
as silhouettes glow
themes of miles
from a long time ago.
Now they are memories
Heavenly laid
themes of miles
that ticking time made.
Found as the flavors
of love so divine
themes of miles
are a wonderful time.

Scattering Dewdrops

Springtime awakens
with raindrops to fall
then found by morning
some moisture’s over all.
Scattering dewdrops
here thereabouts
springtime’s beginnings
are with little sprouts.
Green grass then growing
with flowers divine
scattering dewdrops
shows that it’s springtime.
The stage is in place
for the season to flow
scattering dewdrops
for things which to grow.
Birds will be chirping
with sounds of dream
and then you might hear
a quick flowing stream.
The wondrous sounds
that springtime inlays
is scattering dewdrops
for much better days.
Then as the season
grabs hold so to shine
scattering dewdrops
will pour just like wine.

Shadows Of Gray

Within the darkness
a shadow can be
seen as a person
or maybe a tree.
Fear might engulf you
as you look around
seeing the shadows
without any sound.
Some shadows maybe
might just be there
seen as a gray thing
you can’t compare.
Yet in the darkness
time might display
only your fearful
of shadows of gray.
Peaceful yet taunting
those shadows might be
when they’re just tree limbs
those shadows you see.
Then as the darkness
falls from the way,
you might be laughing
at shadows of gray.

Mist Of Night

Winds of winter
hold so tight
in the grip of
mist of night.
Strong winds blowing
time is seen
mist of night
a moments dream.
Throughout seconds
minutes will grow
mist of night
with winds that blow.
Springtime’s awaiting
time to begin
mist of night
for the winters end.
Soon the flavors
a wintery sight
will be springtime’s
mist of night.

The Love of Friends

A friend so true
as time displays
can become
the best of days.
The love of friends
as counted minds
comes from truth
in days and times.
Faithful truthful
not of lies
the love of friends
won’t meet demise.
Yet with lying
words of mouth
all that was
will just go south.
For the moments
need to frame
the love of friends
and not insane.
Holding truthful
done and said
what that friendship
does not dread.
So now tell me
do you flow
the love of friends
where all you go?

Farewell And Hello

The passing of a loved one
does not mean that they are gone,
for when they pass from this old place
their lives continue on,
Time might seem to be of sadness,
but the joy resides
in the loved ones made as whole
as their spirits rise.
Memories will blossom then
as new days come and go
with the sight of their farewell
and with their hello.
I’ll keep my grandparents in my heart
and all that have gone too,
for I know when my time is up
I’ll be right there with you.
The body only holds a moment
then it must let go
to find the time and place to say
your farewell and hello.

Beyond Our Eyes

With sights unseen
and things less heard
beyond our eyes
there’s many a word.
Spirits are speaking
saying real clear
Heaven is wondrous
and God’s sincere.
Ghost all around us
with angels wings
speaking of Jesus
and how Heaven sings.
Now might seem clouded,
but truth will be found
when we are standing
upon solid ground.
Life can seem endless,
but see how it flies
when you are older
beyond our eyes.

Windows Of Heaven

Now and then will come a time
that we must all be true
and look within our hearts desires
and find life anew.
For the seconds turn to hours
as time falls away
and within the windows of Heaven
then will come our day.
The hearts as sailing ships of time
might one day cease to float
and then they’ll need to find Lord God
to sail them in His boat.
His boat to Heaven sailing true
is that of blessings tide
that sails unto windows of Heaven
with His love inside.
Things we say and do each day
will one day need to find
forgiveness for the things we’ve done
to find a peaceful mind.
For within the windows of Heaven
there’s no room for sin,
so pray to God and ask Lord Jesus
to come and live within.

Spring Has Arisen

The sky might be cloudy,
but blue sky is there
for spring has arisen
with sights everywhere.
The snow is now melting
with waters to flow.
Yes spring has arisen
to give us a show.
Flowers soon blooming
and leaves will then sprout
as trees start saying
what springs all about.
New air to blossom
from rosebuds to bloom
then within April,
May and then June.
Spring has arisen
with life coming true
that in time will blossom
a new life for you.

Meaningless Chatter

Words of abundance
in a jumbled array
can become confusions
words of dismay.
Speaking too often
and not hearing clear
what ones are saying
that might be sincere.
Yet many times though
meaningless chatter
is the prognosis
of lesser the matter.
But don’t confuse it
what all that is heard,
because what they’re saying
might not be absurd.
Meaningless chatter
is sometimes the case,
but other times surely
it needs your embrace.

Maybe more questions

answers for you
within a great while.
Scenes that have risen
questions and more,
the answers for you,
you might need explore.
Answers for you
will sometimes be seen.
found as you slumber

Crosswinds Blow

Sailing ships
in oceans waves
takes them to
some distant days.
Crosswinds blow
and change their course
along with motions
oceans force.
Teams of thresholds

crosswinds blow
and give a ride.
Sometimes seeming
endless path
crosswinds blowing
very fast.
Sailing ships

A Silent Glance

A scene a sight
a friendly dance
is sometimes as
a silent glance.
The dance is just
a time and frame
a silent glance
a different name.
Then the thoughts
that ones perceive
a silent glance
will start to breathe.
A breath of life
of friendly ways
a silent glance
will fill the days.
Let those minutes
become as
a silent dream
of futures past.
But don’t let
the time to grow
a silent glance
with bitter woe.
Choose your glance
with truth embrace
a silent glance
through Jesus Grace.

Front To Back

Up and down,
and front to back
some directions
fade to black.
Red and blue
gives purple scenes
with blue and yellow
turned to greens.
Front and back
can change its place
as some foods
have different taste.
Last to first
is sometimes fact,
but it’s often
not exact.
Links to people
we might find
front to back
a different mind.
Life is often
just a phase
front to back
with different ways.

A Timeless Page

A book of Christmas opened wide
and gave some sights to see,
with lights lit up red, green and blue
upon a Christmas tree.
A timeless page with magic words
that displayed certain hues,
some toys for Jimmy and doll for Pam
and even some brand new shoes.
The scenes so magical displayed times
of which the times foretold
a timeless page in a story book
of Christmases of old.
Each word that’s written down with ink
is filled with love and care
as each page shows of Christmas scenes
with Santa’s wondrous flair.
Yet some pages turned and read
are found with Jesus Christ,
a timeless page of long ago
donned with starry lights.
Christmas season opened wide
this book of loves details,
a timeless page is turned to show
what Christmastime entails.
The stage of love from up above
that pages do employ
a timeless page of love and care
that’s filled with Christmas joy.
So as you read this book of scenes
remember that great age
with Jesus Christ and Santa Claus
upon this timeless page.

Where All We Go

With you and me
and each new day
our paths might cross
in some old way.
The signs of times
might surely show
you and me
where all we go.
With ins and outs
of times mistaken
there might be
a picture taken.
Where all we go
that’s memorized
the things we’ve done
beneath the skies,
No matter when
or where we went
where all we go
is times intent.
For you and I
with passageways
will maybe find
the same old days.
Yet the moments
might occur
where all we went
and seem a blur.
Then those minutes
moments times
might turn into
only rhymes.

Rekindled Thoughts

Thinking rethinking
minutes gone by
minutes tick onwards
and might seem to fly.
Rekindled thoughts are
timeless to find
as we are thinking of
time after time.
Thoughts of a second
are paving the hours
with rekindled thoughts
that timeless empowers.
Some seeming lengthy,
but they just flew by
as a roadrunner running
from a critter so sly.
The footprints in sand
from footsteps you took
are rekindled thoughts
at times you mistook.
More than a memory,
more than a day
rekindled thoughts
can fade all the gray.
Finding all the wonders
of times that you lost
and smiling remembering
rekindled thoughts.

Changing Perception

Donning your new eyes
changing perception
might find you standing
needing correction.
For through your choices
you might have then wronged
someone on someday
that might have belonged.
Changing perception
finds other views,
looking with new eyes
and seeing the trues.
Often our perception
has come from a friend
and not from our own sight
to then depend.
So let your new days
find some correction
from that of new eyes
changing perception.

Pipe Dreams

Seeming realistic,
but falsely displayed,
pipe dreams can be like
a live hand grenade.
Fantasy living
can become nightmares
found as some pipe dreams
with just but a flair.
Scenes with exclusions
of times reality.
Pipe dreams can become
a lost entity.
Times full of falsehoods
with you oh so great.
that turn into nightmares
which truth can’t relate.
Life turns the pipe dreams
into history,
the things that are not true
and what’s reality.

A Faraway Place

In a land so faraway
where the sun is so high
and the people are friendly
as they struggle by,
I found a true friendship
that has become much more,
he’s more like son of mine
I’ve never seen before.
We surely have never met
and I have no true fatherhood,
but he acts like a son of mine
in a faraway neighborhood.
In a faraway place in time
where two souls connected
we found through the internet
heartbeats that were affected.
One needing compassion
and the other with love
in a faraway place in time
with much love from above.
Time brought them closer
through then and tomorrow
with one in a faraway place
to Henry Nana Kwaku Oduro.

Beneath a liar
holds many different views,
that sway back and forth.

A simple flower
can change all the scenery
with merely a glance.

Blinding is the sun
if our eyes look long and hard,
but warmth it will give.

A footsteps journey
shows many mistakes we make
as our own imprints.

A tree that’s swaying
might have a windy reason
or creature within.

What lives within us
can become our destruction
if it’s only lies.

Reluctant people
will wait as long as they can,
before doing things.

Scenes of a haze
are often just a moment
that sleep can repair.

As grass is growing
so are many weeds thereto,
but beauty they give.

The fangs of a dog
are not there to bite you,
but chew up their food.

Time is dynamite
when it’s used in the wrong way,
for it can explode.

A bird flying high
often uses some breezes
to keep it aloft.

Mind blowing moments
will one day become calming
as time goes its way.

Today’s yesterday
might become the tomorrows
that you’re wishing for.

Sometimes believing
needs you to look passed your doubts
and see what that’s true.

The essence of life
is not just of what we see,
but what we cannot.

A page of our life
holds stories with many words
that ones cannot spell.

Best is perception,
for what seems the best right now
might be very wrong.

A valley of life
has an essence of beauty
with freewill of time.

Desires of thieves
will dig into others lives
and take them away,

Planting a flower
will not make it to grow strong,
for it needs water.

Chances are given
that many use foolishly
without thinking first.
