A Fenced In Yard


Hello my friends

It’s beginning to look a lot like wintertime
around this place.  It snowed a little bit last
night and there is more snow predicted for
the majority of the week.  Our mobile home
addition is still not finished and we are not
paying rent until it is,  for at the moment it
has an inch of water standing in it with the
roof leaking in it.  So,  he better get on the
ball.  I have taken pictures of how it stands
at the moment and I will use them if he gets
nasty,  but hoping that it doesn’t get to that.
Surely he’ll come and fix it all before winter
gets a full grip on us.  He should of had this
done months ago.  He hauled the addition
out here in August for crying out loud LOL.
So,  time will tell to whether he gets it fixed
or we have to find another place to live,  but
it must be the country being we have our 2
boys Benny and Rocky.  Either the country
or there must be a fenced in yard for them.
BUT,  we are hoping that we do not have to
move,  because we love the location and all.
It’s just the other stuff that is getting on our
nerves and making it hard on us.  Please
keep us in your prayers as well as our dear
landlord that he might get motivated to get
busy our home.  He’s a good man,  but he
has a bit of a procrastination problem LOL.
OK,  so next topic.  Judy and I went over to
her sister Trudy’s house for Thanksgiving
and we had a nice time.  Judy brought a few
things that she cooked such as cake,  green
bean casserole and scalloped corn casserole.
After we all got done feeding our faces,  we
played some trivia games.  Benny and Rocky
had fun playing with their cousins 🙂  They
were some tired pups when we finally got
home about 8:30 that evening.  We were all
quite pooped LOL.  Judy and I have been
watching a few Christmas movies.  There
are a lot of new ones out and most of them
are pretty good.  Right now it’s 33 F degrees
and cloudy.  No snow for this evening or for
tomorrow,  but after that,  who knows hehehe.
So what else is going on here at the Pearce’s
Place?  Well,  that is a good question.  Our
book is getting a slow start selling.  I have
already written 55 more picture poems for
Pearce’s Poetry Pictures Volume 2 hehehe.
I’m reasonably sure that Judy will do a few
more to add to the book as well.  We’re in
hopes that our book catches on.  We’ve put
a lot of hard work into it.  Writing poetry is
one thing,  but writing them to fit into a picture
is another.  It takes me a little bit more time
to write a picture poem and have it to tell a
story about the picture as well as to make it
nice to look at.  Anyways,  let me see if I have
another topic to talk about LOL.  Nope,  can’t
think of anything.  God has still been with us
as we face the trials of day to day life.  Yes,
we have problems,  but we realize that there
are many others that have it a lot worse than
we do.  If you happen to see someone that
is struggling to find happiness,  give them a
kind word and if you have anything to share
with them,  let God’s love to guide you.  We
do our very best to help ones that we are able,
but we’re very limited in our resources.  Give
what you are able,  for even time is a great
commodity to give to someone.  Many times
the giving of ourselves can do much more
than money or things.  Now,  I believe I have
rambled enough and 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 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 think I found a good
title near the beginning of my rambling LOL.
Now to see if I can do anything with it.  Here
goes.  Keep your fingers crossed hehehe.

A Fenced In Yard

Within our lifestyles
time might become
a fenced in yard
or a moment to some.
Preventing others
from coming inside
or keeping out chances
for time to abide.
A fenced in yard
can protect you true,
but it can also
hinder your view.
Don’t let a fence then
become all you are,
for surely most surely
there’s more by far.
Look on beyond
a fenced in yard
and see God’s truth
of near and far.

There ya go.  I hope that made some sense
to ya.  I also hope that my rambling wasn’t
too boring for ya.  I didn’t have as much to
ramble about as I normally do LOL.  Aren’t
ya glad about that HaHaHa.  Yes,  I know,
I bickered about our living conditions quite
a bit.  You have no idea what trouble we are
in far if he does not get this all fixed.  That
floor of the addition will become ICE and
who knows what else.  So,  we are hoping
that this is all fixed REAL SOON.  Until
then,  we’ll keep on keeping on LOL.  It’ll
take more than that to destroy the Pearce’s
We’re tough cookies hehehe.  So,  is there
anything else that I need to tell you before
I continue with my closing?  Hmm,  well,  it’s
32 F degrees now at 4:24 PM.  Most of the
snow from last night melted fairly quickly
being that the ground is still too warm and
it will take a few days of steady freezing
temperatures to get it cold enough to hold
snow on it.  I had to go outside last night
and brush off the ice and snow from our
satellite dish because we weren’t getting
a TV program signal.  I sprayed the dish
with some PAM so to keep the ice and
snow from sticking to it again.  That’s a
little trick I learned a while back hehehe.
Anyways,  it looks like it is time for me
to be telling you what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  I wrote 10 more
poems with 2 of them being Christmas
poems.  I once again wrote a few more
poems due to the picture poems so that
ups the count to 13 LOL.  Yes of course
I 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
I believe it’s time for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or whatever is left of it and a
truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  OK,  so
where are ya laughingly hiding this week
you silly off switch?  Sheesh,  he’s hiding
good this time LOL.  Oh for crying out
loud,  now I see ya.  Dangling from my
PC microphone like an acrobat.  A really
bad acrobat at that LOL.  You just had
to act out didn’t ya hehehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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+3 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

A Lonely Bird

The sky above me
holds in flight
a lonely bird
within my sight
It flies with passion,
it flies with ease,
it flies up high
above the trees.
A lonely bird
with wings of time
flies so high
with peace of mind.
It scans the view
to time and date
to maybe find
a lonely mate.
Then this creature
that flies so high
won’t be lonely
in the sky.
Yet now listen
it is heard
singing songs
a lonely bird.

Gulls In Flight

A scenic day
a wondrous view
gulls in flight,
an ocean blue.
Feathered actors
flying fast
through the scene
a moments past.
Seagulls flying
timeless so
across the way
of us below.
Gulls in flight
create a scene
found within
The ocean breeze
becomes a dance
gulls in flight
a true romance.
A scenic day
becomes a sight
created by
the gulls in flight.

Winter’s Road

Day meets snowfall,
time stands still
while life beckons
its appeal.
A winter scene,
a timeless stage,
winter’s road
of age to age.
Moments doorway
opens wide
allowing winter
deep inside.
Time is essence
painted white
winter’s road
of day and night.
Day sees snowflakes,
past has seen
a winter while
within a dream.
Time is pictured
whitish hue
winter’s road
of thereunto.

Through A Fence

Years ago
I stood to see
the clouds drift on
in front of me.
Through a fence
I saw them well
white and gray
my eyes could tell.
Times momentum
moved with grace
sights I saw
with fence to face.
A view of then
so long ago
through a fence
the clouds bestow.
timeless days
through a fence
I found my gaze.
I took a picture
timeless whence
of the clouds then
through a fence.

A Drive Through Autumn

A simple moments memory
becomes a work of art
painted in a photograph
gleaming to impart.
Time’s the scenes recording
displayed with such a flair
as a drive through autumn
becomes an answered prayer.
Time is but a doorway
to that of which can be
a simple autumn drive then
with blessings given free.
Doorways become windows,
opened for a view
a little drive through autumn
with sights seen freshly new.
True the moment’s splendor
is not that long to show
while a drive through autumn
is where our wheels will roll.
Driving down the roadway
as autumn leaves display
a timeless moments mention
of how they got that way.
The minutes tick so slowly
as wheels go round and round
while anticipation
finds beauty to be found.
On a drive through autumn
the moments come alive
as we’re taking pictures
on our autumn drive.

Trails Through Life

A single path
throughout time
might just be
the best to find
with some bumpy
and some holes
trails through life
have hidden goals.
Time’s a doorway
hidden scenes
some as minutes
rushing streams.
While a story
surely spills
trails through life
are turning wheels.
Teeming with a
roads display
many trails
have things to say.
Words of wisdom
now and then
trails through life
go out and in.
On down pathways
roads of time
there are lessons
which to find.
Some as seasons
found with strife,
some with blessings
trails through life.

An Autumn Scene

Before the colors
leaves of fall
many crops are
fields so tall.
Golden essence
painted hue
an autumn scene
is dreams come true.
Maybe with some
clouds of white
or some darkened
lesser light.
An autumn scene
can be a field
with some crops
the farmers yield.
Yet the story
still unfolds
an autumn scene
with moments goals.
Clouds with raindrops
might display
an autumn scene
of white and gray.
Times with echoes
so serene
this is found
an autumn scene.

A Snowy Trail

The whitish glaze
of fluffy snow
becomes a trail
that’s to and fro.
A snowy trail
of someone’s feet
becomes a time
that’s found complete.
The path is laid
within the snow
a journey made
with winter’s goal.
A snowy trail
to then and there
that someone made
to get somewhere.
A season’s journey
far and wide
finds a moment
time’s applied.
A winter scene
a Christmas view
a snowy trail
to thereunto.

Thanksgiving Blessings

Some fond memories
come into play
as I remember
Thanksgiving Day.
Seasons of joyful
families gather,
yet many sadly
choices would rather.
Life is a picture
painted with style
some with a frown
and some with a smile.
Thanksgiving blessings
are often not clear
until the time’s passed
year after year.
Remembering family
friends and much more,
time can become as
life’s swinging door.
Thanksgiving blessings
are found on a date,
not just the food
you have on your plate.

Dad And The Train

Christmas was magic
as minutes would pass
with dad and the train
and Christmas of past.
He laid out the tracks
for the train to run on
as I watched patiently
while singing a song.
Santa Claus is coming
to town soon they say
as that little train waits
to make its display.
With dad in the floor
connecting the tracks
I wait to see how
the train then reacts.
Smoke from its engine
in classic detail
as it goes chugging
with a choo-choo exhale.
With dad in the floor
and I in the chair
I recall such a time
a Christmassy flair.
Joyful the moments
I now can remember
dad and the train
times in December.
A time long ago
that’s locked in my brain
a Christmas of then
dad and the train.

Without A Glance

As life moves on
the days will pass
and often seem
a bit too fast.
A glance a gaze,
a passing sight,
might display
what’s wrong or right.
Without looking
seeing true
a time or place
might destroy you.
Without a glance
to see for sure
a moment might
be so impure.
So look to see
what’s there to find
and use your glance
to clear your mind.
Don’t just be as
song and dance
with troubled times
without a glance.
See the proof
within the while
an alligator
or crocodile.
Without a glance
of dusk to dawn
might just leave
a bitter wrong.

Passions Beach

The dawn of day
finds two in arms
passions beach
with oceans charm.
The scenes arrival
finds a way
to paint a smile
on every day.
Two together
standing close
passions beach
a photo pose.
The season’s sky
is filled with clouds
passions beach
with oceans loud.
Waves come crashing
to the shore,
passions beach
of evermore.
As the morning
turns to noon
and the evening
comes to swoon,
seasons glisten
timeless scenes
passions beach
within their dreams.
For these lovers
in Heavens reach
stand together
on passions beach.

Beautiful Flowers

Seen on a pathway
some flowers become
essence of springtime’s
own beating drum.
Colors of sunshine
to brighten the days,
beautiful flowers
then which to gaze.
Hibiscus maybe
a flower is found
then as some artwork
when I’m looking down.
Beautiful flowers
create a smile
inside my minds eye
times do compile.
The sweetest portion
of timeless details
brings many blessings
as ships and some sails.
A ship through passion
timeless the hours
finds me with camera
and beautiful flowers.

for Nov 26,  2016

Found by a flower
might be but a mere moment
awaiting the rain.

Without a second
an hour has not a chance,
for minutes can’t thrive.

Charged by some lightning
a storm might become beauty
that lights up the skies.

Wisdom of an owl
is only found in its eyes
for wisdom’s within.

Patience is the key
to finding a moments peace
when life is too slow.

A white snowy trail
might hold a moment of life
within the footprints.

Photos of flowers
don’t harness the aroma,
but just the beauty.

Various choices
become mysterious sights
exposed within time.

Breathing in a breath
does not guarantee a life,
for life needs a path.

Beyond a dreamworld
holds a concocted second
that might be much less.

Challenging someone
that you know little about
could find your demise.

Hate is a poison
that can make the owner sick,
while love could heal them.

A mud puddles display
could be a splashing effect
that gets others wet.

Snowfall of winter
shows signs of its creation
found in the snowflakes.

Pointless is hatred,
for it finds nobody peace,
so cease the hatred.

Losing at a game
does not make you a loser,
but a winner to thrive.

Painting a picture
needs your focus on the painting
and what you’re painting.

Shadows in the night
can be but just a tree limb
or something other.

Exposing ones flaws
can sometimes expose your own
as the light’s on you.

Meaningless chatter
often becomes emptiness
as others listen.

Little known people
can be the most important
that are found silent.

A spirit in want
might need someone to hear them
so they can pass on.
