Right Now


Hello my friends

It looks like wintertime has finally grabbed
a hold and is giving it its very best.  We’ve
had a few nights at -18 F degrees and gotten
a lot of snow.  We’re expecting 12-18 inches
tonight and tomorrow on top of what we’ve
already got.  It snowed a little bit Saturday
and it snowed off and on throughout last
week.  I’ve been taking the boys out in the
snow and playing with them.  They love it
when I do that.  Right now according to my
computer radar,  it looks like the snow will
soon commence.  It’s supposed to be heavy.
Oh well,  we haven’t got anywhere that we
need to be,  so we’ll just sit tight and enjoy
it.  This is the life of living up north hehehe.
I might have to go out from time to time
and brush the snow off of our satellite dish,
but that’s no big deal now that it has been
lowered to where I can get to it LOL.  It
was up on top of our house and then I had
to just wait for it to clear itself being it was
out of reach.  That meant us being unable
to watch TV until the snow cleared off of
it on its own.  Bummer!  But now that it’s
within arms reach I can brush the snow
off of it and we can go back to watching
TV hehehe.  Anyways,  next topic.  Judy
is still painting.  She’s gotten pretty darn
good at painting too.  I’m amazed at how
much she has improved since she began.
I’ve written a lot more picture poems for
book number 3 LOL.  I never thought I
would be putting my picture poems in a
book,  but it is being done.  Big surprise!
It seems I spend every day working on my
picture poems.  It’s a lot harder than just
writing a poem LOL.  I’m writing about
each picture and then having to format
the poems into the pictures.  I know,  it
may not sound hard,  but it is when you’re
a perfectionist hehehe.  I am very picky
about the way it looks and reads.  LOL,
I might do one over 4 or 5 times before
I get it the way I am happy with it.  Yep,
it often gives me a headache LOL.  So,
next topic.  It looks like Judy and her
sisters will be starting a painting night.
They have a craft night once a month
that they get together and create,  but
now they’re fixing to start up a painting
night once a month.  Sounds cool to me.
While she’s doing that,  I’ll work on my
picture poems and what not.  Of course
I will also play with the boys hehehe 🙂
Benny and Rocky miss Judy when she’s
gone,  but I do my best to take their
thoughts away from it by taking them
outside for a play day and take a few
pictures and videos.  It all works out
well.  Everybody needs some time away
from each other.  It gives Judy and I
a breath of air,  being we’re both retired
and disabled.  It can get stuffy in the
house LOL.  Well,  it looks like since I
began writing this,  the storm has gotten
a lot closer according to my PC radar 🙂
Maybe a couple of hours away.  I might
go out and play in it LOL.  I’m still a kid
at heart.  I’m sure the boys will want to
come out and play with me hehehe.  They
always do 🙂  So what else is there for me
to tell you?  Hmm,  well,  our grandson
Christian came and spent Friday night
and Saturday with us.  We always enjoy
having him here.  We’ll miss these days
when he gets to the age that he no longer
wants to come and visit us.  He’s 15 now.
They grow up so fast.  I thank God for
the many blessings that He has given us.
Yes, I get discouraged from time to time,
but God pulls me through one way or
another.  I guess it’s time once again for
me to begin 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 seem always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found a
decent title near the beginning of all of my
rambling hehehe.  Now to see if I can do
anything with it.  Here goes.

Right Now

Since the beginning
a time might not be
the moment you wanted
for now which to see,
but a pathway trodden
of just any old how
might not be needed
for you then right now.
A portion yet maybe,
but not fully true,
for right now might just be
not so clear to view.
The scenes in our vision
of a daily attire,
might not be right now
of Lord God’s desire.
So take heed with patience
and seek to endow
what God has envisioned
for you then right now.

Okie dokie there ya go.  I hope it makes
sense to you.  Also I hope my rambling
made a little sense to you and didn’t just
put ya to sleep LOL.  Let’s see,  is there
anything else I need to tell you.  Judy’s
brother I doing OK.  There’s a lot going
on with him.  Please keep him and Judy
in your prayers.  Judy is often stressed
out worrying about what to do with her
brother.  So,  OK,  that’s all I’ve got and
now it’s time for me to begin my search
for that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I tell you what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  10 more poems
with an added 4 being many of them are
picture poems.  So that brings the count
up to 14 poems and yes I also 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 it’s
time for me to begin searching for that
old off switch,  but first I want to wish
you a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
where is that off switch hiding this week
or more to the point,  playing peekaboo 🙂
Hmm,  looking around the room and in
places it has hidden in the past.  Wow,
ya done good this time,  but even still,
hiding behind my PC camera would of
made a better hiding spot for something
half your size LOL.  Better luck next week.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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 🙂
Please buy our book 😉

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+4 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Home From The Store

With clouds above
and snow of white
we took a drive
in winter’s light.
There and too
I took some pictures
the scenic drive
in winter’s mixtures.
My wife drove on
to town and back
and then we both
sought to unpack.
Our little dogs
were happy to see
us open the doors
and set them free.
They loved the ride,
but happier more
that we returned
home from the store.

An Autumn Farm

Leaves of colors
yellow and red
display scenery,
autumns bed.
An autumn farm
becomes a sight
a scene to see
within daylight.
Seen as a painting
a picturesque view
this time and place
that colors accrue.
An autumn farm
of temporal time
seen as a painting
timeless sublime.
Yet it’s a picture
a mere photograph
an autumn farm,
a time that’s passed.

Morning Sky

Ocean’s speaking
crashing waves
minutes passing
distant days.
Morning’s threshold
song and dance
waves become
a true romance.
Seen as stories
written true
morning sky
within my view.
Sunlight beaming
through the way
becomes blessings
in the day.
Scenic wonders
waves become
sounds of life
a beating drum.
With the oceans
morning sky
there are seagulls
sought to fly.

Bird In Flight

A cloudy sky
displays the sun
while a morning
is begun.
A bird in flight
displays its wings
while it flutters,
shouts and sings.
Beneath its flight
the ocean flows
waves of time
that it bestows.
Time is echoed
words sincere
a bird in flight
of yesteryear.
The moment finds
a heartfelt day,
a bird in flight
that flies away.

I Found A Trail

While one day
when walking around
I found a trail
of common ground.
It seemed to go
where I was too
this trail I found
within my view.
It had a sense
of driven time
this moments trail
so well defined
It seemed a path
for ones one day
to drive along
within their way.
The leaves displayed
an autumn scene
with thereunto
and in between.
As I trudged on
this autumn path
my mind found peace
with time to pass.
The steps I took
were found with ease
among the autumn
fallen leaves.
This was a time
of great detail
this fine day
I found a trail.

A Distant Ship

While searching through
the waves that crash
a distant ship
is seen to pass.
The view is hazy,
but yet it’s seen
a distant ship
just like a dream.
It seems to sail
the ocean blue
within the waves
of thereunto.
While searching seeking
for a photograph
this distant ship
just sailed on passed.
Seeming timeless
it sailed on
until surely
it was gone.
A distant ship
was faded sight
found within
the evening light.

Summer At The Dock

As minutes pass on
with ships sailing true,
summer at the dock
is a deep sky of blue.
The season is displayed
as the oceans request
summer at the dock
is the days very best.
Pictured as a dream
with a fishing attire
summer at the dock
is what I so desire.
The smell of the sea
with the seagulls flight
summer at the dock
is a wonderful sight.
Displayed as magic
that is seen from afar
summer at the dock
is a dreamers guitar.
Strummed as a blessing,
notes sounding clear,
summer at the dock
is what I wish to hear.

Reflecting Fall

Timeless waters
show their hue
in reflections
tried and true.
Displayed colors
show so bright
as reflections
autumns light.
As a mirror
waters shine
reflecting fall
and its design.
Pictures taken
ones can see
become as a
mere memory.
Autumns flavors
give a call
within waters
reflecting fall.

Tracks Of Autumn

Beyond the tracks
of cold steel rails
an autumn scene
shows its details.
Essence of journeys
displayed so fine
tracks of autumn
an awesome design.
Leaves seem painted
colors of joy
pictures detailing
autumns deploy.
Tracks made worthy
of seasons on worth
leaves changed colors
to show of their birth.
Tracks of autumn
carry on through
showing the season
within its own view.

Down This Road

God gives places
wheels to turn
lessons gather
times discerned.
Some as headway
journeys through
and some others
more to do.
Down this road
might seem as snow
a driven pathway
which to go.
Yet the journey
might just be
down this road
to history.
A lesson learned
that time misled
down this road
to what’s ahead.

The Snow Will Fall

Winter awakens
with snow of white
and pictures taken
such a sight.
The snow will fall
and paint its view
within the scenes
of old and new.
While this happens
two dogs play
as snow falls down
its magical way.
The seasons signs
are in the air,
the snow will fall
with love and care.
Pure as Heaven
and white as peace,
the snow will fall
as skies release.
Seen in a picture
dogs so small
display in essence
the snow will fall.

One Fine Day

There was a day
of summers heat
that found the sight
of fish defeat.
A little boy
with fish in hand
was found with joy
this time so grand.
He was seeking
with baited hook
to wish a fish
to take a look
and then real quick
his line went tight
one fine day
of summer’s light.
He ran real fast
to show his catch
with rod and reel
and fish attached.
The boy found joy
in this display
that to him
was one fine day.

Upon My Lap

A day of peace
is found within
a time of life
that did begin.
Our two boys
so furry true
just love to sit
and enjoy the view.
Upon my lap
they go to sleep
or look around
with eyes so deep.
Our furry boys
will always find
a wanted scene
within their mind.
As they look up
and ask to be
upon my lap
sitting fancy free.

She Stood And Smiled

With snow of season
glazed of white
I saw her standing
in my sight.
This gorgeous woman
stood and smiled
amidst a photo
that time compiled.
Her brown eyes shown
of wondrous gaze
within winter’s
distant days.
She stood and smiled
as time went by
in snow of white
and cloudy sky.
She walked the path
within the snow
then stopped a while
to say hello.
She stood and smiled
my one true love
in snow of white
from Heaven above.

A mystery of life
might be your own perspective
of reality.

Life of a rainbow
is a short lived moment
that displays true peace.

Life as a flower
is a seasonal lifestyle
that is remembered.

A summer shower
brings a brand new horizon
refreshed with new life.

The sun tells stories
of a day to day display
that many are blind.

Snowflakes are journeys
that are as falling water
that changes its mind.

Tomorrows today
might have yesterdays tear drops
that we never dried.

A shadow of life
can become a living thing
through our perceptions.

Four paws of true love
is that of true forgiveness
while we remember.

Displayed as anger
we are often just confused
without the right words.

Living as liars
the truth will one day be seen
and expose the lies.

Thunder and lightning
tells a story in the skies
that ones hear and see.

Deceptions of weeds
are that of dandelions
and summer daisies.

Time is illusion
when the seconds have halted
to find a dream.

White snow of winter
is a moments emotion
that lives as Christmas.

A path through the woods
might be made to guide the way
or to just confuse.

The need of friendship
is a pathway through mistakes
that we must persist.

A forest of trees
may hold a moment alone
hidden fast away.

The sight of a ghost
becomes many thoughts we think
that deny or not.

As our lives find end
the beginning then is seen
to see what is true.

Within a heartbeat
holds a chance for existence
that might not be right.

A session of truth
can become a liars home
if it is allowed.
