A Little Sunshine


Hello my friends

Well it looks like springtime has officially
landed in Northeastern Maine.  All of the
snow has almost melted away,  but there’s
still a few patches of snow that are holding
on for dear life LOL.  Yet,  for the most
part,  it is gone.  Some of the grass is even
beginning  to turn green,  here and there 🙂
The high for today is what it is right now,
56 F degrees.  Yes I know for many of you
56 F degrees doesn’t say springtime,  but
for up here,  that’s what it is.  It won’t get
much warmer for another week or 2.  So,
what else is there to talk about?  Hmmm,
well,  the other day (April 21) I took a
picture of it snowing.  It was after dark
and I had to use the flash of my camera.
It seems I caught a picture of Milo in a
smoky haze within the snow.  I didn’t see
it at first,  but I was going through recent
photos last night and spotted an eye and
Judy spotted the other and his snout and
mouth.  It looks like he was smiling at me.
I know it seems weird,  but the picture is
in last weeks journal stationery if you’d
like to look for yourself and see what you
can see.  The picture has not been changed
other than sized down for the stationery.
Anyways,  Judy and I can clearly see our
dearly departed Milo in the picture.  You
might not,  but that’s OK.  I might put
the picture as the first of my stationery
pictures for this week if I remember LOL.
This passed week has been not so eventful.
We went to Walmart twice LOL.  The 1st
time when we came home we saw that we
had ducks in our yard and I took a few
pictures of them.  Of course I was afraid
to let the boys out of the back seat being
I thought they might go chasing the little
Mallards,  but when we let them out,  they
didn’t even pay the ducks any mind.  It
was as if they didn’t even see them LOL.
Although how could they miss them :)?
Nope they just looked for someplace to
go potty and then they were ready to go
inside while the ducks still waddled all
about.  It has rained quite a bit lately,
but then that’s the norm for up here LOL.
If it’s not snowing,  it’s raining!  Oh yea,
I got book number 3 published last week.
I’ll add a link to it at the bottom along
with the other links.  I hope that 1 day
our books begin selling.  It would make
all of the hard work worth it.  Oh well,
life goes on.  Maybe after I’m dead and
gone,  our books will begin selling LOL.
Who knows what’ll happen in the future?
Only God :).  So what else is there for me
to yammer about?  Well,  Judy has done
quite a few more paintings and yes I’m
still writing hehehe.  I’ve already begun
working on volume 4 of Pearce’s Poetry
Pictures 🙂  Yeppers,  I’ve already written
30 picture poems.  It seems I’ve a knack
for poetry pictures.  Who’d a thunk it 🙂
They do keep me busy hehehe.  Actually
writing the poem is fairly easy for me.
It’s the formatting it to the picture that
I wrote it for that is often the hardest to
do.  But I do enjoy it.  it’s sort of fun,
for a while and after a while becomes a
headache LOL.  Anyways,  next topic.
We had a little sunshine one day last
week,  but that was very brief.  Today is
cloudy as normal.  It seems that we don’t
see much sunshine up here,  but in that
same note,  it also doesn’t get as hot as
it does down south.  That part of it is
the part that I love.  I can’t handle too
much heat.  I’m very prone to strokes
due to excessive heat such as anything
above 80 F degrees.  That’s one reason
it’s good for me to be away from Texas.
I had multiple heat strokes when I lived
there which also caused my left eye to
go blind.  So here I shall stay,  in the
frigid north where we often have snow
with 6 months of winter LOL.  Yeppers,
it pays to like snow,  but even I get a
little tired of the white stuff after 4 or 5
months of it LOL.  There is still 1 small
patch of snow beside our driveway that
seems to refuse to melt Hahaha.  The boys
seem to head right to it every time they
go outside.  Though,  it too will be gone
soon and they’ll have to just do their
thing wherever LOL. Of course Rocky
already does that along with the other
hehehe.  So,  now to await the budding
of flowers and leaves on the trees.  None
yet,  but I’m sure in time after the cold
nights cease and desist they’ll start their
decor for spring and summer.  Though,
they might miss springtime just a tad 🙂
There isn’t much else to tell ya,  aside
from the fact that God is still watching
over us and it seems that Milo is as well.
God has been there for me in my life so
many times I cannot count them and He
is watching over Judy and I as well as
sending angels to be daily protection
and providers for peace.  I would not
be here if it were not for Jesus and His
daily love and care.  Thank You God,
for all that You have done for us and
all that You will do.  Now I believe it’s
time for me to be taking my little trip
back through all that I’ve written here,
to try and 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 stumbled on what seems
to be a good title and after checking
I see I have not used it yet,  so used it
shall be Mwahahahahehehehahahaha.
Here goes…..

A Little Sunshine

As days and weeks
become as years
a little sunshine
dries the tears.
Beyond a moment
life is found
a little sunshine
on the ground.
As the minutes
join the game
a little sunshine
might give rain.
A cloud or two
might grow to be
a little sunshine
less to see.
Yet as the minutes
times portray
a little sunshine
heals the gray.

There ya go.  I hope you enjoyed the poem
and hopefully didn’t bored too much with
my rambling LOL.  I can’t help it,  I’m a
rambling man hehehe.  I do tend to write
about silly things huh.  Oh well,  That’s me.
I think many of you on my email list have
grown accustomed to the way that I write
knowing that there are many of you that
have been receiving my emails for maybe
20 years or more LOL.  So,  what have
I forgotten to mention?  Oh yea,  there
are prayers needed for the Canton Texas
area and a few others.  Tornadoes touched
down and did a lot of damage and so far
they have found 5 deceased with possibly
more after they go through the wreckage.
I send my love and prayers down to you
all.  Now I believe it’s time for me to tell
you what I tell you almost every week and
that is,  I wrote a few more poems and
haiku.  Ok maybe more than a few hehehe.
Yeppers,  I wrote my regular 10 with an
added 6 due to,  well you know LOL 🙂
So  all in all I wrote 16 poems.  I also
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.  With that
said I reckon it’s time for me to begin
my search for that hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you all
a most joyful weekend or whatever is
left of it and a truly blessings filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Now,  where is that silly off switch
hiding this week?  Hmmmm,  searching
around the room.  LOL there ya are.
Hiding behind the window shade.  That
was a good hiding spot aside from the
fact you were on the wrong side of it 🙂
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 books

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

Birch Of Dawn

Evening comes
and then it goes
as the night sky
surely flows.
Birch trees wait
to find a view
of the mornings
early dew.
Yet the night sky
paints with ease
birch displaying
many leaves.
Then the starlight
fades to past
leaving only
slight contrast.
For the morning
sings its song
that of scenic
birch of dawn.

Spring Comes To Life

Found is a flower
a sunny side way
springtime’s arrival
is brighter in May.
Life begins growing
bestowing a view
seasons on threshold
timeless and new.
Spring comes to life
as a flourishing time
watered as dewdrops
with life to unwind.
Living as blessings
as time is displayed
season’s awakened
so Heavenly made.
Spring comes to life
as sunshine is shown
flavors of flowers
as Heaven’s cologne.

Through A Passage

Time’s a photo
a picture taken
through a passage
that’s awakened.
Scenes of bliss
with river flowing
ages stages
time’s bestowing.
Autumns colors
slightly seen
through a passage
so pristine.
Life’s a journey
like a blessing
in my view.
Through a passage
life is found
age to age
as sight and sound.

Trekking Through

Time and space
is our destination
searching for
a new location.
Living life
of a different way
trekking through
a new display.
We search the skies
for different views
to become as
our daily news.
So many different
sights are seen,
but many call them
merely a dream.
With each new sight
ones might believe
a story told
that ones perceive.
A timeless voyage
to outer space
trekking through
might find our place.

In My Sight

Life of wonder
winter white
gives me blessings
in my sight.
As a painting
hung with care
in my sight
is a love affair.
A dream come true
a scenic blessing
in my sight
is winter’s dressing.
Trees that glisten
early morn
found as magic
then reborn.
In my sight
I see the scenes
winter’s display
snow of dreams.

April Showers

Rain is falling
on my face,
but the moments
I embrace.
Then as raindrops
fall much harder
my umbrella
seeks to barter.
Giving pleasure
of its gain
sounding off
the falling rain.
Raindrops glisten
in the hours
this is found as
April showers.

The End Of Winter

Seasons notions
still consider
not to see the
end of winter.
Yet the snowflakes
fade real fast
warmer weather’s
here at last.
The end of winter
might be vague,
but it’s soon to
surely fade.
Leaving only
scenes we see
mailbox covered
white debris.
Yet the snow will
surely cease
the end of winter
will find peace.

Like A Painting

Light that dims
and leaves a glow
is the sunshine
sinking low.
Time is artwork
in contrast
like a painting
shadows cast.
Dimming beauty
mountain sights
becomes essence
pure delight.
Scenes as Heaven
sweet as gold
like a painting
does unfold.
Evening’s memoir,
joy is found
like a painting
all around.
That of sunshine
mountain scenes
like a painting
sunshine themes.

Beneath The Water

When looking down
in waters depth
I seek to dive
and hold my breath.
The clear waters
surely show
things that live
as waters flow.
Beneath the water
holds a place
a wondrous scene
with life’s embrace.
Time’s a ripple
found to be
beneath the water
life set free.
Fish are hiding
in the wake
beneath the water
in the lake.

Winter Stroll

Step by step
a winter’s day
footsteps make
a days display.
The time is found
a snowy scene
step by step
a winter’s theme.
A winter stroll
in a field of white
step by step
a scenic sight.
The fluffy flakes
upon the trees
swaying in
the winter breeze.
Time is as
a scenic dance
found within a
moments glance.
Footsteps made
a timeless goal
displays life
a winter stroll.

Snow Angels

The beginning of winter
shows seasons delight
snow angels displayed
in snow oh so white.
Left from a glimmer
of persons that made
snow angels that day
so timeless inlaid.
The snowy shadows
of the past and present
snow angels formed as
a wondrous event.
Left over portions
of them that were there
snow angels display
that wintertime flare.
The beginning of winter
brings alive this view
that is left to become
a day fresh and new.
A Christmassy theme
of lives to and fro
that time is depicting
snow angels in snow.

Upon The Edge

Distant scenes
with stages set
become a time
I can’t forget.
Upon the edge
a scene is found
a timeless view
to look around.
A mere moment
to then explore
that brings to life
an opened door.
A photo realm
of hearts desire
upon the edge
to then admire.
The view of life
that times fulfill
might seem as if
it’s a windowsill.
A stage that’s set
to seem a ledge
might be a road
upon the edge.

Life Of Day

Lost in a gaze
the sunshine shows
the life of day
that time bestows.
Evening sunlight
melts from view
creating scenes
a wondrous hue.
With but a glimmer
of sunlight to fade
the life of day
is surely made.
Lost in a time
that a clock exposes
the sunshine seems
like wondrous roses.
Every essence
is filled with love
the life of day
from God above.
The evening sun
displays its sight
the life of day
beginning of night.

Through A Window

Ones perception
times transcend
might just become
your best friend.
Yet the moments
we found so clear
might be a vision
of the yesteryears.
Our perception
we think as gold
could be but only
the days of old.
Truth is written
within the past
through a window
that’s fading fast.
Yet the minutes
that time displays
through a window
can heal the grays.
With perceptions
corrected sight
through a window
can become right.

Day Of Rest

My dog and I
we sit at rest
with a little bird
of living quest.
Time displays the
days and weeks
a day of rest
within its peaks.
Life is counted
so timelessly seen
a picture painting
of  dream.
As life goes round
it brings in view
a day of rest
for me and you.

Scenes Alive

Life’s a moment
minutes displayed
while our clocks
minutes might fade.
Mere photographs
of our memories
become of a time
of distant seas.
As scenes alive
a doorway finds
a place of grace
connecting minds.
With just a view
that photos record
the scenes alive
are minutes reward.
A taste of time
in a photograph
a special time
of the distant past.
A time and place
that came to be
as scenes alive
of our history.

Life of a flower
is a living photograph
painted by Heaven.

Spring is a season
that brings to life many things
that might live longer.

Found on a journey
footsteps might be discovered
that hint where to go.

Beneath a rain cloud
holds a pathway of chances
for rainbows to grow.

Distant memories
can become as our shadows
that thrive in today.

Waiting for summer
becomes a springtime journey
found within our minds.

Painting a picture
using what we imagine
becomes as abstract.

Lost in an ocean
a wave finds its direction
as the winds will blow.

Numerous pathways
hold the links to our lifestyles
of which we must choose.

Our own descriptions
might be filled with deception
as we each perceive.

The hours in a day
give us chances to blossom
or become stagnant.

Someone’s crying eyes
could be holding tight to life
that is haunting them.

Leaves that blow briskly
can be someone else’s life
as painstaking trials.

Dissolving heartbeats
leaves blood to flow fluently
as our memories.

Clinging to lifestyles
could find you in the poorhouse
filled with your regrets.

Beside a river
lives a peaceful decision
directions to find.

is a world that can live
if it’s meant to be.

A forest of trees
might hide lonely trees within
that need some sunshine.

Beyond what we see
is a place that might exist,
but not understood

The blue sky above
becomes dark within deep space
with more to unveil.

A harmonica
plays the songs of a journey
as wind from the lips.

The risks that we take
might become regrets in time,
but also lessons.
