Hello my friends

So it seems that February is over with
and now March is upon us.  Yeppers
and ye ole winter winds are still doing
their thing.  Yesterday evening when we
got back home from grocery shopping
we found that our hot water had froze.
I called our landlord and he came today
and got it thawed.  It was a bit too cold
for him to get out to fix it last night 🙂
The wind chill was -18 F degrees and
the wind was blowing profusely.  We
didn’t expect him to get out in that.
He’s an old guy like us LOL.  It’s all
good now.  Though Rocky had a bit
of a poopy butt and the water was too
cold for me to wash it last night hehehe.
So I took care of that when Calvin got
the hot water thawed out.  I trimmed
Rocky a little more while I had him in
the bathtub and then did my regular.
I washed out the tub real good.  I gave
both Benny and Rocky haircuts Friday
while Judy road down to Bangor with
her sister Barbara.  They went to visit
their brother Ricky and Barbara had
a doctors appointment down there too.
Anyways,  I got the boys trimmed up
fairly well.  I’ll need Judy to help me
hold them so I can do final cuts or she
can cut and I’ll hold them hehehe.  It
don’t matter to me.  Friday I cut off
over 2 Walmart bags of hair.  If I had
the power of life I could of created two
more dogs out of all that hair hehehe.
But,  I am not God,  so therefore the
hair just went in the trash 🙂  Right
now it’s 17 F degrees at 6 PM.  Just a
bit chilly LOL.  Oh yea,  Friday after
I cut the boys hair,  I went outside
with them for a little romp time and
they decided that they wanted to go
for a field trip,  so I walked as lightly
as I could over the frozen two or more
feet deep of snow.  Just a few steps out
I heard the loudest BOOM as the ice
began to crack.  I hollered at the boys
to come back,  but they just stopped
to see what the noise was about.  So,
I kept walking and caught up to them,
but by that time I was near the trashed
mobile homes and the snow was fresh
which meant the snow beneath it was
insulated and was not frozen so well.
Yep,  you guessed,  I fell through and
had to crawl out where I could find
the frozen snow again.  Needless to
say,  that pretty much did me in and
Rocky knew it as he came running to
my aid.  LOL Benny just watched me
in wonder.  Anyways,  I said that’s it,
time to head to the house and they
were off in a mad dash.  I took a little
video of them running side by side
heading back to the house stopping
ever so often to wait on me.  Then
Rocky ran inside the front extension
to our house,  but Benny climbed up
on a snow mound to keep watch over
me till I got home and then he went
with me and we all went back inside
out of the cold.   Right now,  Judy
is over at her daughter’s house for
their new paint night.  It’s the first
one.  They meet over at Judy’s sister
Trudy’s house once a month for craft
night.  We went shopping yesterday,
but stopped off at the Dollar Tree for
a little craft shopping and what not,
then we headed to Walmart for food.
Yes I’m a guy and yes I like to shop 🙂
and yes I am straight LOL.  I’m not
your everyday guy I guess.  I don’t
like or watch sports either.  Judy is
the same.  It may seem weird,  but
we enjoy pretty much the same things
favorite TV,  poetry,  photography
and I use many of her paintings for
picture poems 🙂  I’ve already got 76
picture poems written for the new
book.  I’m halfway there LOL.  It
does keep my mind busy.  I enjoy
writing picture poems/poetry pictures
and they do keep me busy hehehehe.
For that matter,  so do these boys 🙂
They had to go out a minute ago and
Rocky was just barking saying they
were ready to come back in,  so now
they’re both in here warming up by
the radiator heater.  Rocky’s right
beside me lying in his doggy bed and
looking up at me with his little toothy
grin LOL.  Benny is on the other side
of him.  Our little home is always with
something stirring about 🙂  Did I tell
you that it snowed again Thursday 🙂
Not a lot,  but enough that the boys
wanted to go out and play in it LOL.
Oh yea again,  Last Monday Judy
and I did pictures of us holding our
books.  So we’ve both got pictures
us holding them and of us together.
I thank God for bringing Judy into
my life.  We have a few problems as
that’s life,  but we work through them
together.  There’s no marriage that is
without its struggles,  for nobody is
perfect.  Make a point of not going
to bed with anger  for it will only
grow and cause you a restless night.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be
looking back over all that I have
written here to see if I can find me a
decent 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.
I believe I may have found a decent
title about a third of the way back
through my rambling :).   Now let’s
see if I can do anything with it.  Here
goes nothing hehehe.


Times a moment
shadows cast,
everyday is
with a past.
Scenes recorded
in our minds
become memoirs
distant times.
Everyday is
not the same
even if it
is your aim.
Distant scenes
of times accord
never fail
to find The Lord.
He is always
watching you
wanting your life
fresh and new.
So with troubles
kneel and pray
give them to Him

I hope you enjoyed the poem and it
maybe even made sense to you LOL.
I never know if anything I’m writing
makes any sense to anyone but me.
I also hope you enjoyed my rambling.
I do tend to drift from topic to topic
don’t I hehehe.  I can’t help it,  that’s
how I remember stuff LOL.  Surely
you don’t expect me to go back and
rewrite this every time I remember
something Hahaha.  If I were getting
paid for it maybe,  but I’m not LOL.
I guess though it’s time for me to be
telling you what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10
more poems with an extra 10 due to
my many picture poems this week 🙂
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there. I haven’t
written any Christmas poems lately,
so who knows,  I might write a few
next week :),  but don’t hold your
breath hehehe.  Ok now I guess it’s
time for me to begin my search for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but
not before I wish you blessings filled
week.  Remember Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Now,  where is that
off switch hiding this week?  Hmm,
I think I spy with my 1 good eye
a bit of movement from behind my
aspirin bottle.  Sheesh,  you’d think
you would learn that the bottle is
CLEAR and I can see you hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to our brand new books

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

Painted Church

In colors found
of timeless gaze
a painted church
displays the days.
It’s as a portrait
wood beheld
a moments scene
for time to tell.
A painted church
of blue and white
with black trim
an awesome sight.
The painters eyes
began the chime
the churches bell
unique design.
Within the scene
a cross is found
for God and love
His common ground.

Baby Giraffe

Within the wild
there stands so tall
a baby giraffe
that ones see small.
It holds its head up
real high to see
the sights around
the tallest tree.
It’s a tall baby
to surely grow
and one day see
what times bestow.
Each day he dreams
of skies of blue
with a neck so long
to see the view.
His heart is filled
with hope and dreams
as he walks up
to rushing streams.
The life and times
of a baby giraffe
are found with joy
as years will pass.

Winter’s Bench

The season’s closing
leaving signs
snow filled moments
winter times.
A winter bench
is sat in snow
while the season’s
good to go.
Left are portions
winter white
found as stages
scenes in sight.
As an actor
snow is seen
with a bench then
so serene.
Snow has melted
inch by inch
leaving signs of
winter’s bench.

A Lonely Owl

One peaceful night
an owl would sing
a song so lonely
near a stream.
Upon a limb
beneath the moon
a lonely owl
would sing its tune.
The sounds of love
with every who
a lonely owl
seeks thereunto.
In the moonlight
this great fowl
seeks a mate
a lonely owl.

A Certain View

When days get bad
and time stands still
a certain view
might spin the wheel.
Opening pathways
to brand new days
bringing in sunshine
of which to gaze.
A certain view
of seasons delight
can open the door
to a much better sight.
For with the pages
of pictures and more
a certain view
can open a door.
Bringing in lifestyles
so fresh and anew
time can become then
a certain view.

The Old Fisherman

This man he stands
in summers sun
while fishing wishing
more than none.
His pole is ready,
his line is taunt
anticipating waiting
a fisherman’s jaunt.
Waves are thrashing
singing a song
as the old fisherman
just sings along.
He sings of journeys,
he sings of the day.
He sings of pleasure
a wonderful way.
He sees the blessings,
he sees the bliss,
the old fisherman
cannot resist.
Time is his favor
he patiently waits
the old fisherman,
hook that he baits.

Work Together

When troubles come
with waves of time
work together
for peace of mind.
Don’t let the waves
of time destroy
your floating essence,
seek for joy.
Find the blessings
times can attain
by working together
and find the gain.
With two together
the journey will be
stronger in essence
in life’s shining sea.
Find the moments
that two can improve
and give you hope
to win not lose.
When seas of struggles
come into view
work together
through seas of blue.

Swings In The Snow

With trees standing near
there’s swings in the snow
standing projecting
a swing to and fro.
As a doorway of winter
the swings sort of sway,
swinging in the breeze
in their own little way.
Swings in the snow
become a memory,
as patterns in the wind,
a blessing given free.
Seasons recreation
with a snowy attitude,
swings in the snow
that children have pursued.
Winter is enlightening
as it paints within its flow
seasons on a journey
with swings in the snow.

Field Of Snow

A heart of grandeur
views a scene
a field of snow
so white and clean.
Some cattle grazing
makes the scene
a wondrous view.
There’s a valley
with rolling hills
a field of snow
that time fulfills.
A pleasurable sight
of times display
brings into view
God’s wondrous way.
His mighty hands
created this sight
a field of snow
seen day and night.
Viewed in the day
the sun bestows
and even at night
the moonlight glows.
A painted picture
from God above
a field of snow
His whitest dove.
Within a memoir
His hands bestow
from Heaven above
a field of snow.

Two Love Birds

Life in a picture
a painting of time
is of two love birds
an awesome design.
A moment unending
a moment so true
finds birds united
a wonderful view.
Seeming as people
two love birds display
passion for minutes
that gather the day.
Painted as notions
of true love to find
finds two love birds
a scene intertwined.
Seasons of true love
become song and dance
two love birds singing
of moments romance.

Within A Mountain

Scenes of beauty
fill ones eyes
as mountains reach
to highest skies.
A story book
becomes alive
within a mountain
times survive.
Written in rock
and stone thereof
a mountain holds
life like a glove.
A scenic point
from distant times
within a mountain
are designs.
Seasons splendor
is displayed
within a mountain
times have made.

The Sun In The Sky

An ocean settings
waves rolling in
becomes a scenic
time to begin.
The sun in the sky
shines so very bright
it makes the clouds
as a magical sight.
Painting a picture
with its bright charm
the sun in the sky
is so very warm.
Its rays are as time
with waves to foresee
the passionate stage
that’s given so free.
The voyage of a ship
on a summery phase
displays the scene
with ocean and waves.
With but a moment
the clouds fly by
creating a picture
the sun in the sky.

Waves Of Summer

Beyond our shadows
time is found
waves of summer
sight and sound.
The scenes recorded
picture frames
minutes moments
times champagne.
Watching people
daily true
waves of summer
seas of blue.
A man and dog
that found the joy
a summers day
with dog and toy.
Waves of summer
times embrace
footprints found
with smiling face.
Times remembered
shadows gaze
waves of summer
wondrous days.

Fishing Dream

Time’s in sequence
a painted array
a little guy fishing
enjoying the day.
His boat is rocking
as ripples of time
a fishing dream
is found so sublime.
The sun is bright
with its reflection
bringing to life
a solar perfection.
A momentous scene,
a sight for sore eyes,
a fishing dream
beneath the skies.
Seconds and minutes
pass by with peace
making this moment
sweet Heavens release.

Moonlight Bears

A time in a scene
when dreams come true
becomes such a time
when life is anew.
Moonlight shining
a yellow phase
as bears together
stand and gaze.
A time in a scene
when minutes tick on
leaving the moment
a time before dawn.
Moonlight bears
they stand together
to see the dreams
of life forever.
A time in a scene
when peace comes alive
with moonlight bears
that time does revive.

A Steady Heart

Hope filled dreams
with signs of truth
are many stages
of our youth.
A point and time
when life is gray
a steady heart
takes it away.
Sealed with love
of times recalled
we all might find
those times enthralled.
A distant page
of timeless scenes
a steady heart
rekindles dreams.
As time moves on
with works of art
our lives will find
a steady heart.

A Path Of White

Beyond the day
there is a trail
a path of white
that times entail.
With guiding lights
and handrails too
to guide someone
that’s walking through.
A path of white
is given free
to cross it truly
without fee.
It holds a moment
there entwined
that soon becomes
a special time.
A scene recorded
such a sight
that’s found to be
a path of white.

A Clouded Mind

Past to present
now and then
time is found
beginning again.
God sends angels
to be our guides
on the days of
cloudy skies.
We might worry
about someone
a moment then
a time that’s done,
but God is always
with a way
to give you peace
when life’s astray.
For when struggles
fill your heart
God and prayer
gives place to start.
Let His blessings
be entwined
when you’ve got
a clouded mind.

Smoke That Drifts

A day and time
with winter’s white
finds a fireplace
there in sight.
The time and place
where winter shines
smoke is drifting
in my mind.
As an echo
of yesterday
the smoke drifts
with color gray.
While I walked
I looked right back
watching billows
from the stack.
It gave me
a certain gift
peaceful seen
the smoke that drifts.

Within A Child

The hopes and dreams
of a little girl
become the joy
within the world.
Within a child
holds many things
somes puppy dogs
and wondrous scenes.
The smallest sight
becomes so great
within a child
of time and date.
A story starts
with seasons stage
within a child
of age to age.
The minutes pass
as time’s compiled
the hopes and dreams
within a child.

for Mar 4,  2017

Before and after
will connect in the middle
with our memories.

The seasons journeys
that are stages of a year
that bring us beauty.

Life’s a scenic route
that often has some speed bumps
to slow down your stride.

Flourishing flowers
become blessings for our eyes
as they come to bloom.

Change is deception
when all that’s changed is the view
and not what’s inside.

Morning bring shadows
across a few nearby trees
that create daydreams.

Time creates moments
that can become memories
along with lessons.

Within a doorway
holds chance to enter or leave,
for it’s up to us.

Morning remembers
all that nighttime brought to view,
so make peace at night.

A windy winter
brings forth many chilling nights,
so prepare yourself.

Yesterdays children
will be tomorrows choices
so teach them the facts.

Losing direction
can find you down lonely roads
if you fear to ask.

Now is a moment
that will soon be in our past
that ones remember.

Lose the yesterdays
that you made many mistakes
and make it better.

A fly in a room
recognizes fly swatters
without it knowing.

Rekindled lifestyles
can become either large flames
or burning bridges.

A season’s sunshine
brings peace into a heartbeat
if it’s not sunburned.

Life is a river
flowing sometimes too quickly
that many build a dam.

News of a person
might be merely just gossip
as it’s only lies.

Now gives us a chance
to change how we have become
and seek for better.

Looking for trouble
might procure more than wanted
and dig you a grave.

With each passing day
life continues with its stride
while some waste away.
