A Rainbow Of Peace


Hello my friends

It’s been a cold rainy weekend over this way.
Although on a good note,  our landlord finally
made some steps for the addition to our home 🙂
and yesterday (Saturday) he came and started
attaching the addition to our house so it won’t
be raining in it every time it rains.  He’s still
got a lot of work to do.  Judy and I will most
likely pull up the carpet that’s in it,  because it
is ruined.  We might just buy some area rugs
for it,  but not before the floor dries up LOL.
Calvin said he was going to come back in the
next couple of days and try and finish up with
the sealing of the addition and then hook up
the electricity to it.  It’s finally coming along.
We bought us some solar motion activated
security lights that I’m going to put up here
and there around our house so we can see.
In another bit of news,  today (Sunday) is my
loving wife’s birthday.  Judy and I are now
the same age,  again LOL.  For a couple of
months I’m her old man being I turned 60 in
August 🙂  Judy wanted Chinese food for her
birthday and so she ordered some from Tangs
and I ordered me a pizza from Pizza Hut.  We
have both finished feeding our faces and so
I figured it was time for me to begin writing
my journal.  I haven’t taken many pictures
this week,  being it has been mostly cloudy
and rainy most of the week which makes for
blurry pictures.  Next topic.  Our new book
is now for sale.  I hope that you will buy a
copy of it.  I’m sure that you will love it 🙂
I’ll put a hyperlink for you to buy it below.
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures  if this link does
not work,  then there will be another link
to it in the other half of my rambling LOL.
Anyways,  we’re hoping that many will buy
it.  There’s over 150 picture poems in it 🙂
I have already begun writing for volume 2.
So what else is going on around this place?
Well,  Judy is still painting up a storm and
with ever stroke of her brush she’s getting
better.  I am so proud of her.  She’s turned
into quite the artist.  My gift is merely in
poetry LOL.  Although I do have a pretty
good ability with photo’s and working with
my photo programs,  being that’s what I do
creating my picture poetry.  So,  what else
is going on at the Pearce’s Place?  Hmm,
well,  Judy’s brother Ricky is finally out of
the nursing home.  Judy and her sister Barb
went and picked him up Friday and he is now
back at his home.  He’s been in panic mode
and called here for Judy many times already.
He called early 4 AM this morning because
he had a nightmare.  I hope and pray that
he gets at more peace being back home.
He wanted to come home and now he is
home.  Though all of the reworking and
fixing up that Judy and others have done
have confused him.  His house was not
livable before and they have all repaired
and remodeled his house to be wheelchair
accessible.  So send Ricky your prayers
as he tries to continue with  his life for the
while he has to live.  His health is not good.
Anyways,  next topic.  Benny and Rocky
are still as ornery as ever.  Yesterday when
our landlord came to work,  he brought his
granddaughter and she loves the boys 🙂
So I baby-sat while he worked on our house.
I read her some of my poetry about Benny
and Rocky.  I’ve written quite a few poems
about them as well as about Benny and
Milo.  Other than all of that,  our house is
what many would call,  BORING hehehe.
Not much going on.  The boys are right
behind me now begging for treats,  but
our vet said we needed to cut back on the
treats because Rocky was 7 pounds over
weight.  I’m sure he has lost it now,  but
we still think we need to limit the treats
to being as treats and not giving them to
them every time they want one LOL 🙂
They’re learning that when I say NO,
I mean NO,  not maybe 🙂  I just turned
back around to my computer and they
went back to their doggy beds and laid
down.  We love them and that is why we
do as we do.  I’ve seen many completely
go overboard spoiling their pets and we
don’t want to be one of them.  It’s not
healthy.  They’re happy little boys and
we love them.  I’m going to try and get
the solar light that I bought at Walmart
up tomorrow so that at least it will make
it to where we can see to get in the house.
Judy ordered a few cheap ones off of the
internet that when we get them,  I’ll find
a place to put them.  In the mean time
this one that I bought from Walmart
is a really good one and has two lights
that are adjustable and really bright 🙂
Hopefully the boys aren’t too small to
activate it LOL.  We shall see hehehe
literally,  we shall see 🙂  We can see
God’s mighty hands at work in our lives
as each day comes to pass.  We have
our problems,  but they’re not the end.
Yes,  Judy and I have our bad days that
we get angered,  but those days pass
on by leaving a rainbow of peace to
be seen after each storm.  I know no
one that does not have a bad day once
in a while.  It’s human to lose it time to
time.  It’s all in how you lose it that can
become either a better life or a destiny
to Hell.  Learn to try and see both points
of view and try not to let your ego to be
as a troublemaker.  Sometimes even you
may find times that you need to say that
you’re sorry even if it is not your fault.
Someone needs to offer the olive branch
no matter right or wrong.  An over sized
ego can become a hindering block for
the future.  The fact is,  that we all make
mistakes and need to ask forgiveness.
Give your life to God and let peace be
the rainbow in your life.  Now,  I believe
it’s time for me to begin my 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 lil
place of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I
may have found a decent title just a few
lines back.  Now to see what I can do
with it LOL.  Here goes.

A Rainbow Of Peace

The sense of a style
with a troublesome heart
can find then a cloud
with a great work of art.
A rainbow of peace
in a moments despair
can become as your view
with a minute of prayer.
The layers of life
in the patterns we see
might be the very thing
to be what should be.
A rainbow of peace
through angers own view
can become as a page
with a wonderful hue.
Allowing the storms
of time to pass on,
a rainbow of peace
can show a new dawn.
While letting blessings
of God’s Only Son
to begin as a pathway
new life then begun.
Allowing your anger
to surely then cease,
you can then see clearly
a rainbow of peace.

Well,  there ya go.  I know it’s not that good
of a poem,  but hopefully you understood it 🙂
I also hope that you enjoyed my rambling at
least a little bit LOL.  If not,  then,  oh well 🙂
Life goes on.  I just did a goofy little Happy
Birthday dance for Judy hehehe.  The boys
wanted to get in on it.  LOL I was just being
silly as I am often hehehe.  If ya don’t believe
me,  then ask her,  she’ll tell ya 🙂  Yeppers,
our little home can get a little bit bizarre at
times when I get bored LOL.  The boys love
it because they love to play.  LOL we were
heading out to go to town to pick up Judy’s BD
dinner and the boys thought we were going
for a field trip and they were both running
like the wind headed out to the field and we
had to holler at them to tell them nope,  we
are going for a car ride.  It took a little bit
of convincing,  but they both came running
back and hopped in the back seat hehehe.
OK so what else do I need to tell ya????
Oh yea,  at the end of the poetry and haiku
along with all of the other links you will
find the links to buy our brand spanking
new book.  We do hope that you will buy
our book.  I’m sure you will love it.  Buy
one for a Christmas gift.  Anyways,  it’s
come to that time that I need to tell you
what I tell you almost every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with
2 of them being sort of Christmassy.  Of
course I wrote 6 more poems due the
fact of my picture poem creations so I
guess I’ll include them.  Not the pictures,
just the poems LOL.  I also once again
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
to find that confounded off switch that
is so horrible at hide and seek,  but not
before I wish you a 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
ornery off switch.  Hmm,  I thought I
heard my aspirin bottle rattle.  LOL
I did,  and there ya are you silly thing.
Hiding behind my bottle of Aspirins.
The bottle is clear you know hehehe.
Maybe try and look for a new spot to
hide next week.  You’ve got all week 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to our brand new book
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures
is at the end of the journal along
with all of the others.  Enjoy 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+6 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Red Striped Lighthouse

This lighthouse of colors
red and white
warns the ships
that sail at night.
This red striped lighthouse
stands so strong
telling a story
dusk to dawn.
The waves come crashing,
sounds at night
as this lighthouse
shines its light.
It warns sea vessels
to stay away
for there are rocks
in nearby waves.
The light it shines
so brightly true,
helps sea captains
sail on through.
This red striped lighthouse,
with its glow
helps sea captains
to and fro.

Tears Of A Nation

Beyond the facts
the truth is found
tears of a nation
that many put down.
The sadness within
is a story to tell
the truth of a nation
that many impale.
Their land is blessed,
but many don’t care
for American Indians
and treat them unfair.
They are the natives,
for the truth is told,
yet from the beginning
so many have stole.
Tears of a nation
are falling like rain
for their lives are filled
with sorrow and pain.

Enchanted Forest

Inside a dreamworld
a yellow moon glows
in an enchanted forest
where hopeful bestows.
Time is a moment
that but only exist
within someone’s painting
with an enchanted mist.
The scene comes alive
as the story unfolds,
an enchanted forest
that a viewer beholds.
A moment so magical
that enhances sight,
an enchanted forest
of a magical night.
It has been painted
with colors so fine,
an enchanted forest
of a magical time.

Seas Of Morning

Through the minutes
seconds find
seas of morning
on the mind.
Waves as blessings
answers still,
seas of morning
times fulfill.
As a painting
sunshine days,
seas of morning
display waves.
Scenes with essence
painted true,
seas of morning
in my view.
Waters glimmer
in  my eyes,
seas of morning
from the skies.
Time’s discovered
in the scenes,
seas of morning
blues and greens.
Waves of sunshine
become found,
seas of morning
sight and sound.
Then as moments
move to noon,
seas of morning
seek the moon.

Looks Like Waves

The sky above
with colors haze
looks just like
the oceans waves.
Each pattern made
is such a scene,
looks like waves
a fervent dream.
Sweet pastels
within the skies,
looks like waves,
a sea gull flies.
Within desire
of God’s own hand,
looks like waves
can become land.
A beach,  a shore
with memories
looks like waves
in deep blue seas.
Time begins,
clouds dissipate
to unload skies
God’s real estate.
A picture taken
is blessings true,
that moments time,
a wondrous view.
Looks like waves
begin their flight,
day to day
and night to night.
Seeming endless
might be found,
looks like waves
with oceans sound.
Seasons change
with you and me,
looks like waves
can be the sea.

Moons Reflection

A momentous scene
with reflected hue
is painted with paint
in a sea of blue.
The moons reflection
shining so bright
is a magical moment
found in the night.
The light it glimmers
a gaze to see
the moons reflection
in the deep blue sea.
It’s a moment in time
that comes alive
with passion and love
of a yellow moon size.
This moon it glows
with a yellowish tint
the moons reflection
with its imprint.
The moons reflection
displays its heart
within the water
as a work of art.
The stage is set
with a painters mind
a view of life
a wonderful kind.
The moons reflection
as pure as gold
is a painters thought
a story told.

This Owl In Blue

Upon a perch
this owl in blue
sits to watch
a wondrous view.
It’s big round eyes
look out to see
the sights around
of you and me.
It watches life
go strolling by
this owl in blue
so very high.
The branches sway
as it holds fast
to scenes of time
as shadows cast,
This owl in blue
is a memory
a painted sight
for ones to see.
It holds fast
to will and way
as it lives on
from night to day.

Without Within

Beside behind
without within
a time displays
a now and then.
Without within
a special place
the here and now
is face to face.
Within the time
without a cause
within a minute
takes a pause.
The things we see
and things we do
without within
will give a view.
Some as signs,
and some as ways
without within
the better days.
Time’s a pattern
marked with minds
without within
remembered times.

Believing Lies

When in a prayer
don’t try to lie
for Lord God knows
what’s wet or dry.
Don’t let yourself
to fall away
believing lies
ones do and say.
The truth is God
through every word
that shows the way
beyond absurd.
See the meanings
in your life
and don’t just fill
it full of strife.
Believing lies
what Satan’s says
will lose your life
for future days.

A Challenge Of Time

Snow filled memories
will come unto be,
the scenes in dreams,
our history.
A challenge of time
becomes a place,
a scene of winter
from autumns embrace.
Those sweet blessings
of Christmastime
become the glimpse
of hope to find.
Winter’s occurrence
as such a sight,
a challenge of time,
a winters night.
Those Christmas songs
we so endear,
that wonderful time
with Christmas cheer.
They all become
a glimmering view,
a challenge of time
to soon come true.
The minutes pass
as days go by,
while songs of joy
live deep inside.
That Christmas snow
we wish to see,
a challenge of time
will come to be.
Decembers stage
will come on cue
to welcome Christmas
soon to view.
The seasonal scene
will then so fine
defeat the essence,
a challenge of time.

A View Of White

The age of time
becomes a scene,
a view of white
that once was green.
Trees so tall
with branches of snow
display a view
seen high and low.
With but a moment
this scene will become
a view of white
in the shining sun.
A field in-between
is a story to tell,
a view of white
where snow has fell.
It seems as magic
this wintery while,
a view of white
that makes me smile.
It’s but a moment
a Christmastime scene,
a view of white
a wonderful dream.
My camera’s clicking
a picture or two,
this scene of white,
a magical view.
It is a blessing
a glorious sight,
this day and age
a view of white.

Healing Mind

As the sunshine
leaves the sky
it can be
a clouds reply.
A healing sight
for ones to see,
the sun so bright
and given free.
Maybe a wave
of oceans time
can become
a sight to find.
A healing scene
of gentle waves
can become
some better days.
Then some peace
of God’s design
can expose
the healing mind.

Parting Waters

Through the waters
boats will go
parting waters
how they flow.
Often journey’s
parting waters,
bumpy ride.
Just like life
with footsteps made,
parting waters,
many wade.
A scene’s exposed
that we desired,
parting waters
time’s acquired.
Lessons displayed
some to sink,
parting waters
how we think.
Yet a moment
can display
parting waters
better day..
Finding prayerful
how we float,
parting waters
better boat.

The Waves Of Time

Fishing in
the waves of time
a fisherman
is found to find
a baited hook
to catch a fish
the waves of time
a wanted wish.
Like a story
word for word
the waves of time
are seen and heard.
Waters rushing
in with phase
around the man
the distant days.
This is time
that comes to be
a fisherman
within the sea
The waves of time
are evermore
found within
the days seashore.
The fisherman
he wades on in
the waves of time
to then begin.
With each cast
he seeks a sign
to catch a fish,
the waves of time.

Autumn Rain

The season finds
the leaves of color
changing face
for seasons other.
With autumn rain
the leaves wash down
to find their place
upon the ground.
The moments change
from day to night
with autumn rain
to help the sight.
A moments path
is found upon
with autumn rain
as leaves are gone.
The scenes details
are surely found
leaves of colors
on the ground.

Rustic Memories

On one summers day
I drove passed a place
with an old rustic style
that my heart did embrace.
It wasn’t real weathered,
but it held fast to age
those old rustic memories
on an old rustic stage.
I took out my camera
and began with a smile
snapping up pictures
of an old rustic while.
We’ve many seen places
that time brought us to,
those old rustic memories
of an old timely view.
You might not of noticed
a real old rustic barn
near an old rustic house
with an old rustic charm,
but the places exist
just as oceans and seas
those places in time
those rustic memories.

for Nov 5,  2016

A simple person
with a mere thought about life
might not be simple.

Many challenges
are of our own daily choices
that we chose to do.

A path in the road
might have many directions
that you cannot see.

When chasing a dream
you might stumble and fall down,
because it’s a dream.

Facts are within us
that we often will ignore
and continue on.

Living for today
will sometimes be destructive,
as the future dies.

Various colors
that we weave into our lives
will change our feelings.

Allowing others
to control your emotions
gives them great power.

The sights that we see
can often become icons
in our daily lives.

Wielding a weapon
can become anothers tool
to use against you.

Morbid emotions
can become as kryptonite
detouring others.

Without a second
a minute has not a chance
to become a day.

Throughout our lives
we will see many flowers
that bloom in springtime.

Using credit cards
can bury you in deep debt
if you are careless.

Tomorrows in time
can become as yesterdays
found in reflections.

A large breath of wind
is a kite flyers best friend
that can become bad.

Evidence of life
is a pattern many seek
while views might be wrong.

A liars heartbeat
only speaks true a moment
that they are caught in.

Inside a doorway
holds chances and some choices
that become as lives.

Within a seedling
there is a life giving force
that time will release.

Blue skies above us
display characteristics
of our perception.

Clouds found together
can become a stormy day
or a photograph.
