Take A drive


Hello my friends

It’s been a sort of warm passed few days,
but still,  not too bad.  It’s raining off and
on right now.  The high for today is 82 F.
Right now though,  it’s 76 F at 3:30 PM 🙂
So aside from all of that,  today is pretty
nice.  Today is the boys birthday.  Yep the
boys are another year older.  Of course we
are not sure of the actually date that Rocky
was born,  but we know Benny’s.  He was
born July 16, 2011.  We assume that Rocky
was no more than 1 year old when we got
him,  so we just gave him Benny’s birthday
being we picked him up from the airport
on Benny’s birthday July 16 2015.  Rocky
was Benny’s birthday present in a way 🙂
They have become the best of buddies and
they look out for one another.  LOL you
can’t hold one without the other wanting
to be held.  If we sit on the recliner or the
futon,  they will both hop up on either side
of us.  Yep,  we’ve got some good boys and
Milo was one of them.  Next subject.  We’re
done with Rocky’s meds for when he got
sick.  He took the last of them yesterday.
LOL I put down his food today and he
looked up at me as if to say,  hey daddy.
something’s missing.  I guess he acquired
a taste for the pills and powder hehehehe.
Anyways,  he sniffed it a few times and
then proceeded in gobbling his food up 🙂
Benny fished his own and then came to
clean Rocky’s bowl for him,  but there
wasn’t anything left aside from the taste
on the bowl Hahaha.  Rocky pretty much
cleaned it up 🙂  They are both some tired
boys being every time I got up to go to
the bathroom,  they would be watching
me.  I guess they felt they needed to keep
an eye on me.  My health has been a bit
rocky here lately,  but all in all,  I am still
alive and good for another day hehehe.
I’ve been writing more picture poems 🙂
It looks as though I may have book 5
in the next few months LOL.  I have no
clue to how I stumbled upon this gift,
but it is one that God gave me, and so
I do my best to use it.  Judy has been
doing a lot of painting and she has even
bought back the rights to her first book
titled Hello My Name Is Benny and she
has republished it at a lower price than
the company that published before.  They
had it priced at $24.99 dollars,  and Judy
has it priced at $9.99 along with her other
children’s book The Adventures of Benny
and Milo.  Anyways,  she now is getting
ready to publish a book along with our
grandson Christian that will have poetry
in it.  It will be called Look Up.  So you
see,  we are a bunch of busy little beavers
over here LOL.  The Pearce’s Place has
turned into a regular writing force LOL.
So what else has gone on around this place?
Well Judy had a doctor’s appointment on
Tuesday and afterwards we went to the
Houlton Farms Dairy Bar and got us some
ice cream 🙂  It was a beautiful day for
ice cream LOL.  Then Thursday we went
to Pizza Hut and got us a couple of pizzas
to feed us for a couple of days hehehe 🙂
Then Friday, Judy’s daughter brought
Rylee our granddaughter over and we
had a great visit.  It was Rylee’s birthday
and she turned 10 on the 13th.  Judy gave
her a copy of her newest children’s book.
It was Judy’s proof copy,  but Rylee did
not mind 🙂  She was sitting on the futon
reading it and I took a few pictures of
her having fun with her book.  After they
left,  Judy and I took a drive to town to
do a little shopping.  So,  you see,  it’s
not too exciting over here hehehe.  Just
enough for Judy and I LOL.  This week
looks to be even less exciting hehehe.  No
plans except maybe to take some pictures.
Yep,  we might take a drive 1 day this
week to take some pictures,  but still not
sure when or where to go.  We’ll get r dun.
So,  it looks like God is still watching over
us as the days pass us by.  Yes we have a
few bumps in the road and challenges to
overcome,  but together with God and
the angels watching over us,  we will be
OK.  So I guess it’s time for me to take
my little journey back through all that I
have written here to see if I can find me
a good word or phrase that I can use for
the title for today’s brand new poem 🙂
And so it’s away I go to that little place
of my recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  It looks like
I may have found a decent title to use
and now after checking I see that I have
not used it yet,  so used it shall be 🙂
Here goes nothing,  though I hope not 🙂

Take A drive

Times and places
find our glance
when we give our
lives a chance.
Take a drive through
now and then
and find lifestyles
to begin.
See the choices
time displays
that can become
better days.
Take a drive now
see the sights.
Find momentum
days and nights.
Let God guide you
to survive
as you live to
take a drive.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and you
maybe even liked the poem LOL.  If you
understood the poem,  then that’s a plus 🙂
There’s not much else to tell you.  I think
I’ve told you all there is to tell about our
passed week and plans for this week.  So,
I guess 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 add 4 to
bring the count up to 14. 1 of the poems is
a Christmas poem.  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.  LOL I just snuck into the
living room and got a picture of the boys.
Benny on his favorite recliner and Rocky
on the futon.  I opened the window and
turned on the fan for them so they would
be a little cooler.  With that said I guess
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’s left of it and a truly awesome
week.  Remember Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now where’s that silly off
switch hiding this week?  Hmmmmmm,
I think I may have seen some movement
from behind my nose spray.  LOL talk
about a bad hiding spot Hahaha.  Plus,
you can’t even stay still for a second
without peeking to see if I can see you 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Winter’s Decor

A passing day
of cold snowy white
becomes as a scene
that many delight.
With winter’s decor
in a wonderful way
creating a picture
of night unto day.
The scene’s of stillness
painted with snow
joined with the essence
as winter winds blow.
With winter’s decor
is a taste of a time
that is a blessing
for many to find.
Life is a portion
time to explore
as seasons come alive
with winter’s decor.

Going Home

A scene by the sea
that is home by the way
displays such a time
of a so distant day.
A home bound journey
just walking a while
going home surely
with a great big smile.
The condo awaits us
as we leave the sea
when we’re going home
to when used to be.
This is a memory
a time in detail
of us going home
down this little dirt trail.
The summery season
becomes such a sight
when we’re going home
in evenings delight.

Just Like A Dream

Fantastic scenery
times that displayed
are often a dreamworld
so heavenly laid.
Times we’ve imagined
that brought us a view
stirred up emotions
to drink of life’s stew.
Sometimes our minutes
might seem as a day
and then in the moments
just fade fast away.
Yes just like a dream
many things that we see,
become as our visions
that we brought to be.
Allowing our lifestyles
to become as a scene
found as a blessing
just like a dream.

Life Is An Ocean

Waves we encounter
bring forth a view
times for embracing
the things we do.
We’re like the waves
that crash on a shore
making our markings
upon the Earth’s floor.
Our seasons arrive
as waves that will roll
while paying the piper
for oceans of goal.
Written as lifestyles
we’ve put in motion
time is of essence
life is an ocean.

Evening’s Memory

Time has passed
and left in view
a time so sweet
of ocean blue.
Evening’s memory
comes unto me
a time I find
now wished to see.
We each have scenes
of life’s desire
evening’s memory
passions fire.
The memories are
the times we found
a scene we saw
of sight and sound.
A simple taste
is still alive
within your days
as heartbeats thrive.
Evening’s memory
will come in view
each time you dream
of a time so true.

Sky’s Reminder

Drifting scenes
of gray and white
display signs
of times delight.
The sky’s reminder
comes alive
a time we’ve seen
as minutes drive.
Across the sky
the scenes display
the passion of
a Godly play.
A simple scene
yet so detailed
the sky’s reminder
of life entailed.
The seconds pass
creating time
as clouds pass by
with each design.
Formed as dreams
of times display
burning bright as
light of day.
Then the night sky
becomes seen
the sky’s reminder
as a dream.
The sky transforms
into a view
the sky’s reminder
for me and you.

Peace Awakens

Found are seasons
in the waves
life that comes
from distant days.
Peace awakens
such a sight
when we learn
to do what’s right.
The stage is set
when time’s begun
to bring us peace
in seasons sun.
Found are moments
counted trails
footprints making
times details.
Then as seconds
pass us by
the past is gone
we can’t deny.
Leaving baggage
time’s partaken
brings some hopeful
peace awakens.

Tiny Crab

While I was walking
just looking around
I saw a tiny crab
down on the ground.
He walked sideways
each way he went,
this tiny crab
of times intent.
I bent down close
to tell him hello
but it seemed to him
to just impose.
He scurried fastly
on back to the sea
this tiny crab
to get away from me.
But I managed to
tell him goodbye
which for the moment
I know not why.
For he just wanted to
crawl away
and find some peace
one summer’s day.

Scope Of Mind

A certain time
becomes displayed
a scope of mind
with leaves inlaid.
A seasons view
on down the road
becomes a day
that God bestowed.
With our lifestyles
on the brink
with confusion
how we think.
The scope of mind
is found to be
a certain way
of which we see.
Our perceptions
gathered true
become our daily
point of view.
A seasons doorway
that we find
might just be
our scope of mind.

Haunting Dreams

Life is a picture
a timeless emotion
found in some scenes
as a turbulent ocean.
Haunting our minutes
as dreams come true
time becomes moments
with minutes to view.
Sometimes the hauntings
are not but a dream
a time we’ve envisioned
as a fast moving stream.
Life is a picture
that brings us a choice
a time of our mind
to speak out our voice.
Heard as an echo
a scenic surprise
the passing displays
some clouds in the skies.
Our haunting dreams
of heartbeats array
can bring into view
a wonderful day.

Awaiting Time

The sea stands so still
as lives moves along
with now and then often
there then and gone.
As time is with ripples
and a sleeping blue hue
the ones awaiting time
will see their own view.
An ocean of stillness
as a motionless life
displays as fulfillment
without any strife.
Yet time is a billow
with seconds to count
scenes we’ve recorded
as moments surmount.
Our vessel’s preparing
to sail to the sea
as life is concluding
what’s for you and me.
Life is with chances
that we often begrime
found in the seaway
while just awaiting time.

Holes In The Mind

Segments of a cloud
are as thoughts to see
holes in the mind
up above you and me.
Fueled imagination
as clouds in the sky
are as a dreamworld
with life to fly by.
Holes in the mind
are displayed as scenes
maybe as mountains,
maybe as streams.
Clouds give artwork
to create what we see
while we imagine
we are flying so free.
We can be an eagle
that flies with grace
as holes in the mind
create such a place.
That void we created
can become such a time
life within the clouds
as holes in the mind.

Crashing Waves

Binding times
of dismal days
are so often
crashing waves.
Seeming as our
burdens drive,
they so often
keep us alive.
All the struggles
in times we see
can bring a door
and brand new key.
Crashing waves
of looming life
might at times
cut like a knife.
Yet the storms
that time displays
might have lessons
crashing waves.

A Christmas Theme

With winter’s breath
and snow of white
a Christmas theme
comes into sight.
A peaceful view
of certain scenes
becomes the settings
for ones dreams.
The life and times
of hearts aglow
is found within
the Christmas snow.
With carolling
of songs so sweet
and Christmas food
so good to eat.
Those memories
become a day
a Christmas theme
that times display.

for July 15,  2017

A flowers purpose
is found within its beauty,
but it is much more.

Living in a dream
can create many problems
for the truth will come.

With lives incomplete
time can become a nightmare
awaiting a dream.

Common sense tells us
to look before you walk out,
but some have no sense.

Time is a bubble
that’s often floating around
until it is popped.

Showers of raindrops
bring life to each living thing,
but sometimes too much.

Now is perspective
seen only by our ideals,
but we might be wrong.

Life is a moment
that a living thing finds breath
of what all it breathes.

Change is theory
as we often view changes
in our own viewpoints.

Beyond what we see
is a whole new perspective
that might live as true.

Mornings of dewdrops
bring refreshing scenes of life
even without rain.

A field of flowers
brings beauty to the moments
as our eyes perceive.

A mere blade of grass
becomes an ocean of life
as it shares its space.

Mind over matter
brings many to destruction
if matter’s too great.

A tree by itself
creates only its shadow
for its company.

Challenges of life
are what that help us to grow
and without stagnates.

Scenes of summertime
bring visions of November
as the seasons change.

Various rain clouds
have much more than that of rain,
for tornadoes thrive.

Counting the minutes
can create much impatience
as seconds grow long.

Autumn awaits us
with brilliantly colored leaves
to welcome winter.

Heartbeats within us
are as guides through turnstiles,
but some are asleep.

Cherishing moments
can create false memories
not so accurate.
