The Brightest Star


Hello my friends

Well we’ve survived yet another week.  Our add on
partition is still needing much work.  Our landlord’s
got it moved to the house and blocked up and all, but
he has yet to of sealed it or built or brought us some
steps so that we can get in and out of it.  All I can say
is he better get on the ball,  because the usage of
our back steps is limited and when winter gets here
we can no longer use them due to snow.  He cannot
plow back there because of the sewer lines.  Anyway,
we’re going to stay on him to get it finished.  He’s
got a leak in the ceiling of it that also needs to be
repaired also and then the wiring of the lights and
all.  So I ask you most earnestly,  please pray for
these matters to get taken care of correctly and
quickly.  OK,  so enough of my bickers hehehe 🙂
Onto another topic.  The weather is getting a bit
more wintery as each day passes.  Tuesday Judy
and I went to Walmart and I took a few more fall
pictures there and to LOL.  The leaves have begun
falling from the trees leaving many empty branches.
Right now it’s 54 F degrees and raining.  Judy and
I just got back from her daughters house a little
while ago.  They had a Halloween chilly cook off 🙂
I cannot eat chilly due to health issues so I made
up a big batch of my non spicy goulash.  Without
a colon and colostomy bag I can’t handle hot foods.
What goes in hot,  comes out hot LOL.  So,  the
evening went well.  Judy and I took a lot of pictures
of everybody there.  It was all indoors due to the
fact of the rain.  We had to leave the boys at home.
They were OK.  We put them in their crates which
they both tend to spend a lot of time in on their
own LOL.  They treat them like doghouses LOL,
so a couple of hours was no bother.  When we have
to leave them at home,  all we do is say sorry
you can’t go,   get in your crate and they both go
and get in their individual crate and sit down 🙂
We love our boys,  but there are days that we
must leave them home for their own safety.  That’s
life!  Well,  what else has gone on around the
Pearce’s Place?  Hmm,  well Judy is still doing
paintings and I FINALLY finished mine.  It’s
titled the Dog Star which by another name is
Sirius which is at the heel of the Hunter if you
know anything about astrology LOL.  Sirius is
supposed to be the brightest star in the Earth’s
night sky.  I don’t know how true that is being
viewed from different locations though.  So,
you’ve had a little astrology lesson now LOL.
Not that it will do you any good hehehe.  So,
what else is going on around this place?  Well,
as I said Judy is painting,  but it seems that
we have become a sort of team as she paints
pictures and I write poems to go with them.
Not all of them mind you,  being I do have my
limits ya know hehehe.  Although since I’ve
begun doing more and more picture poems,
it seems I have been writing more and more
poems each week 🙂  We are enjoying doing
this together.  In time we’re going to make a
book of the picture poems and hopefully sell
a few copies.  That would be nice if that dream
would come true.  That’s our plans for next
month.  So,  OK next topic.  The boys are
now lying in the floor between Judy and me
in their doggy beds.  Rocky is snoring and
he sounds almost identical to how Milo used
to snore 🙂  If I didn’t know better,  which I
don’t 🙂  I’d think the spirit Milo is in Rocky.
I doesn’t matter,  they are now and they’ll
always be our boys.  Their spirits are always
welcomed in our home.  It seems that the
rain has ceased or at least for the moment 🙂
Yes,  it looks like God is still watching over
us as we face our daily struggles.  We’ve
often got problems that at the moment seem
the greatest we have ever had,  but then on
a bit a reminiscing remember a time and
place that we had it much worse and God
pulled us through.  For even the worst of
times are tools to help our tomorrows.  So,
it seems that I have come to that point in
my rambling that I need to cease and take
a little trip back through all that I have
written 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
place of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe I
may of found a decent title near the center
of my rambling hehehe.  Now to see if I can
do anything with it.  Here goes.

The Brightest Star

The ones we see
in daily view
might not display
what’s really true.
The brightest star
might be so dim
as you focus
not on them.
Yet a moment
might be seen
what was dim
might now agleam.
The brightest star
and real true friend
will be there
till the very end.
For the others
you thought true
might become as
hard to view.

There ya go.  I hope you enjoyed my rambling
and also poem.  Hopefully you understood and
enjoyed the poem as well LOL.  Benny just got
up and strolled out of here and I’m guessing is
now lying on his favorite recliner in the living
room.  I got a late start on my writing due to the
Halloween chilly cook off LOL.  There wasn’t
anybody dressed in Halloween attire,  so I’m
glad I didn’t wear my Halloween mask LOL 🙂
So,  that’s about all I’ve got.  I guess it’s now
time for me to be telling you what I tell you
almost every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems
with an added 7 which ups the total to 17 and
once again I 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 begin my search for that
off switch that’s terrible at hide and seek LOL,
but not before I wish you a most wonderful
and blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now where can that silly
off switch be hiding or at least not standing
right in front of me?  Well,  I’ll be a monkeys
uncle,  He found a decent hiding spot for
once,  but the pitfall in the choosing of this
spot is the fact that I need to change out the
batteries in my camera and he’s hiding right
behind them LOL.  Better luck next week 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to Judy’s new book as at
the end of the journal along with the
others.  Enjoy 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+7 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂


This place of perception,
this place that I live
is just but a moment
that minutes will give.
Home is a blessing,
home is a place
found within sections
of God’s Holy Grace.
Time’s a benefactor
presenting a chance
found within moments
of life’s song and dance.
Home can be a time
with your hat on the wall
hung but just a moment
that you might recall.
Scenes within ages
might find you all alone,
but it might be needed
for then as your home.

Paved With Memories

A horse and buggy
finds place in time
paved with memories
a scenic design.
Life moves forward
with clicking of hooves
paved with memories
leaves some grooves.
Cars might be rolling
quickly on by
as horse and buggy
gives a faint sigh.
Paved with memories
might then be beheld
as a moments expression
that minutes are meld.
Scenes come alive then
timeless to see
a horse in buggy
from our history.

A Road To Town

A scene so white
as wheels roll on
a road to town
has whitish tone.
Snow upon it
scenes so white
a road to town
is day and night.
Time envelops
scenes we see
a road to town
of history.
Winters windows
displayed true
a road to town
with snow to view.
With the patterns
time’s displayed
a road to town
is snowy paved.
As our wheels roll
down the road
a winter scene
is then bestowed.

Colors Of Fall

Life is a journal
written in hues
colors of fall
and wonderful views.
Blended as paint
in an ocean of time,
colors of fall
display their design.
Seeming as magic
the color then blends
in autumns painting
that season transcends.
When viewing pictures
the times will recall
the essence of beautiful
colors of fall.

Abstract Foliage

United colors
abstract design
become foliage
times to find.
Often found with
stripes of gaze
abstract foliage
of the days.
Daytime nighttime
leaves of gold
within autumns
story told.
Abstract foliage
heart to heart
as a painters
choice of art.

Birds In The Mist

A theme of mist
and autumn scene
is found within
the wildest dream.
Some birds in flight
in mist of haze
fly beyond
the moments gaze.
Colors shimmer
within the sight
as the birds
are in mid flight.
Birds in the mist
are then beyond
as they’re seen
above a pond.
As they flutter
to coexist
within the scene
birds in the mist.

Without Right Now

The times that pass
that we regret
might be the times
with best asset.
Without right now
we might not see
what tomorrow’s
might just be.
Beyond our thoughts
of then and there
without right now
cannot compare.
The many times
that now was framed
might of given
good attained.
The tomorrows
that times endow
have no lessons
without right now.

Belittled Minds

Some found so different
might not see as you
with ways that they’re going
and things that they do.
Life is a stew pot
filled with our thoughts
often so different
that many get lost.
Some will belittle
the difference they see
of minds of another
that’s not you or me.
Yet on the backside
of our mental phase
belittled minds thought of
might know better ways.
Then as a turning point
life finds designs
true lessons to learn from
those belittled minds.

The Ghost Of Halloween

This ghost named Boo
that tries to scare
only does it
because of a dare.
He watches the moon
come out at night
and with a pumpkin
seeks to fright.
The ghost of Halloween
just floats around
here and there
and all through town.
Boo tries to scare
everyone he’s seen,
because he is the ghost
of Halloween.

A Simple Change

Points in time
to things we’ve done
a simple change
can be begun.
Maybe a thought
or action made
can become changed
a moment prayed.
A simple change
in where you go
and things you do
will help you grow.
Yet the changes
need to be
what’s within,
not just to see.
Seek for better
styles of ways
and let Jesus
guide your days.
The past is gone
so rearrange
your lifetime with
a simple change.

Breath Of The Wind

The beginning of day
might display some wind
that of a smile
from a real good friend.
A scenic perception,
a windy type smile
can change what’s long
into just a while.
The breath of the wind
on a worrisome day
makes dancing leaves
blow troubles away.
Each scenes in rhythm
the way that it breathes
as the wind blows
those autumn day leaves.
Each minute projected
becomes such a flair
displayed with beauty
with sights everywhere.
A colorful essence
that blessings transcend
comes from the moments
breath of the wind.

Falls Persuasion

Autumn colors
sky and ground
become stages
sight and sound.
Falls persuasion
tempter true
becomes colors
wondrous view.
Life’s performance
painted dream
might just be a
crystal stream.
Colors gleaming
their reflection
within autumns
true connection.
Falls persuasion
paints this view
by a river
waters blue.

Train Trestle

A rusty bridge
that waits a train
stands through time
with wind and rain.
An old train trestle
stands so true
as a magical
autumn view.
Painted moments
come alive
as the train tracks
do survive.
That train trestle
stands through time
waiting for a
moments mind.
Autumns colors
soon unpack
the sounds of time
a clickety-clack.
A choo-choo train
to come on through
that old train trestle
a timeless view.

Christmas Photograph

Wintertime’s wonderland
in snowy white fields
finds that Old Santa Claus
with dogs on his heels
A scene within Christmas
real early to find
displays the magical
Christmas design.
A Christmas photograph
with trees glistened white
becomes as the memories
of seasons delight.
Yes a mere photograph
with joyful surprise
might become a painting
for children’s wide eyes.
A scene with old Santa
and dog sized reindeer
headed through the snow
to spread Christmas cheer.

Christmas Bridge

Across a river
a bridge is stood,
Christmas beginnings
a neighborhood.
A Christmas bridge
through ice and snow
helps the people
to go to and fro.
The Christmas river
is soon to freeze
right beside
the snowy trees.
With Christmastime
and moments seen
the Christmas bridge
is all agleam.
Found with passion
the snowy days
the Christmas bridge
is there to gaze.
Sparkling snowflakes
a distant ridge
echo upon the
Christmas bridge.

A Road Of Snow

A road of snow
that leads to town
is found on days
that snow falls down.
Flakes of white
will cover the path
the road to town
as time goes past.
Christmas songs
are heard so clear
a road of snow
this time of year.
The joyful wake
that spreads around
are sights we see
when headed to town.
A Christmas journey
oh so slow
is found upon
a road of snow.

Sailing At Sunset

Within a painting
a ship’s out at sea
sailing at sunset
with birds flying free.
Seagulls of white
will flutter and fly,
meanwhile the captain
tells seashore goodbye.
Seeking deep waters
to sail on with time,
sailing at sunset
with seashore behind.
Onto a journey
a mysterious event,
as the sails gasp
for a sailing intent.
Soon the sun’s gone
as it fades out of sight,
sailing at sunset
and into the night.

Mysterious minds
seek advice from ignorance
and only find quotes.

The minutes we count
might not be that important
as doorways are closed.

The shadow of life
is a story of a time
that lives in our mind.

Behind everyone
is a person that is good
to motivate you.

Flavors of a dream
can be candy coated life
tasted with your thoughts.

Life behind a door
might hold but only your fears
awaiting your view.

Looking for a path
could make you miss your journey,
for the path was there.

Looking for a storm
often brings one much stronger
than you had planned on.

A glimmer of hope
can be a rainbow of life
inside of a cloud.

Lost in a nightmare
you might forget there is peace
found within a prayer.

Melodies that play
bring back distant memories
maybe good or bad.

Various changes
become differences in time
that could be struggles.

Bewildered people
often seek common answers
to things not common.

As autumn leaves fall
the winter winds come knocking
at the doors of time.

Beyond what we see
are things that are well hidden
that we know not of.

A shower of rain
can be a welcomed moment
or someone’s nightmare.

Now is a time frame
that often gets overlooked,
due to yesterday.

Having and holding
does not mean that you own things,
that might not be yours.

Double exposure
is the insight of pictures
and also people.

Always turning right
will lead you in a circle
if you do not change.

A budding flower
displays its journey through time
to become beauty.

Anger is a path
that can become unstable
and hurt ones you love.
