Not Too Bad


Hello my friends

It’s been a decent passed week.  The weather
has been staying on an even stride.  It hasn’t
gotten too hot.  But then we haven’t gotten as
much rain as we normally do at this time of
year.  Right now at 5:PM it’s 77 F degrees and
sunny.  Our new neighbors have been having a
lot of company.  Their swimming pool has been
used every day LOL even though the water is
just a tad cold.  The guy told me,  the kids don’t
care how cold it is LOL.  He said it’s too cold
for him hehehe.  What else is going on around
here?  Well,  last Monday we went to town to
do some shopping and of course I did as always,
I took pictures there and back LOL.  I took a
little selfie of me Monday for a friend of mine
and I posted it on Facebook LOL.  Wednesday,
Judy went down to Bangor with her sister Barb
for Barbs doctor appointment and to see their
brother Ricky.  Me and the boys as usual just
hung together and entertained one another 🙂
Of course they after a while had just parked
themselves in the living room to wait for Judy
to come home.  I spent much of the time just
sitting in here writing.  I’ve already written 69
poetry pictures for book 5 hehehe.  I’m over
a 3rd of the way done 🙂  Thursday we had a
visit from our oldest grandson Chance.  It was
great seeing him.  Of course now,  he lives just
down the road from us hehehe.  Anyways,  Judy
took a few pictures of him and me sitting on
the futon.  I remember when he was just a little
tike.  He was only maybe 5 years old hehehe.
Now he’s 21.  Boy the years have passed LOL.
Friday Judy and I went back to Walmart to get
a few things to last us till we get paid,  but it’s
looking like we might have to go again due to
a few things we failed to get LOL.  Ain’t that
the way it always goes hehehe.  Saturday we
took the boys out for a little field trip in front
of our house.  They always love to do that 🙂
but getting them to go back to the house is
sometimes a chore.  But then all we have to
do is holler,  ya wanna a treat,  or food and
that usually gets them headed back home 🙂
We always get a few good pictures of the boys
and us out in the field.  It was a beautiful day.
So you see,  not much goes on around here.
Judy has been doing her magnificent paintings
and I have been busy writing my semi sort of
magnificent poems LOL.  Yeppers,  not much
going on around The Pearce’s Place.  Life
in the not so fast lane hehehe.  Time is just
a number around here,  for the days all seem
to sort of look the same.  It’s 6:30 now and
75 F degrees.  Not too bad.  It’s begun cooling
off a bit.  It should be in the 50’s by tonight.
This house is still watched over by God and
many angels.  We have a few daily struggles,
but with God’s help and the many angels we
are able to find blessings.  So,  I reckon it’s
time to begin my little journey back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can find
a word or phrase that I can use for the title
for 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 🙂
It looks like I may have stumbled upon a
fairly decent title just a few lines back in all
of my rambling and now after checking I see
that it has not been used yet,  so used it shall
be LOL.  Here goes…..

Not Too Bad

Through our doorways
time might show
ways confusions
which to go.
Scenes might display
happy and sad
but in time be
not too bad.
Through our lifestyles
pages turn
bringing pathways
to discern.
Our momentum
fast and slow
might confuse us
high and low.
Yet the footsteps
that we’ve had
might find one day
not too bad.

So there ya go,  I hope you like the poem and
maybe even all of my rambling.  I don’t think
I’ve forgotten to tell you anything about our
passed week.  LOL there was not that much to
tell hehehe.  So,  I guess it’s time for me to tell
you what I tell you almost every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yep
10 more poems with an extra 4 which ups the
count to 14.  Also 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’s
left of it and a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  So Ok now 🙂
where is that confounded off switch hiding at
this week?  LOL I guess hiding is putting too
much of an emphasis on hiding,  being it’s
not that great at hiding hehehehehehehehe.
Oh for Heaven sake,  couldn’t you even find
a place that was not right freaking in front of
me?  Sheesh,  hiding behind my teeny weenie,
itsy-bitsy flash drive that is right  in front of
me LOL.  Yep,  there ya are as plain as the
nose on my face hehehe.  Try harder next time.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Million Dollar View

Life is a blessing
no matter the sight
scenes with rhythms
daytime and night.
A page from a story
is read with the eyes
a million dollar view
of sweet scenic skies.
The cover of the book
might not seem great,
but found within it
is a time to elate.
Words of a billow
as the hills will roll
a million dollar view
is a wonderful goal.
Displaying blessings
of God’s Own delight
the scenes come alive
displaying such a sight.
Blessings from Heaven
that show waters blue
are the pages to read
a million dollar view.

A Little Stroll

Those times of life
that now display
as my shadows
of a day
are scenes of life
and true memoirs
that then at times
was best of ours.
Yet those scenes
that I remember
are the times
a burning ember.
Just like pages
of a magazine
a little stroll
is surely seen.
Special moments
a time ago
a picture of
a little stroll.

The Heron

Within the waters
ocean quest
a bird displays
its very best.
Searching through
the waters waves
seeking food
on summer’s days.
The heron sifts
through waters blue
as the waves
go there and to.
A scenic sight
for ones to see
is the heron
of the sea.
It lives and breathes
with fish and more
as it searches
along the shore.
It might fly
to distant scenes
and continue
with its means.
The heron lives
another day
sometimes near
an ocean bay.
The heron’s also
another name
called an egret,
still the same.

Birds In Flight

Life is like
a moment’s flight
seen by day
and also night.
We’re as birds
with wings of ways
flying high
in Earthly phase.
Birds in flight
as sudden dreams
feathers flapping
in the scenes.
We’re as minutes
high and low
birds in flight
each way we go.
Seasons passing
bring in view
a sky of sights
as seas of blue.
Time is altered
with our strives
birds in flight
our daily lives.

Toronto Dreams

Landscape of life,
a skyline of scenes
finds the very essence
of Toronto dreams.
Maybe as a painting
or a picture to see,
Toronto has a view
that enlightens me.
As Lake Ontario
waters will glimmer
Toronto dreams will
begin to shimmer.
Bringing into view
the wondrous detail
of birds in the sky
with wings set sail.
You may not of seen
this place in time
found in Toronto
a scene so divine.
Yet you can fantasize
this wonderful place
of Toronto Dreams
with waters enlace.

In The Woods

Trees of burden
bring to view
sights of stories
me and you.
We’re the forest
times unfold
in the woods
our stories told.
Life’s a moment
shadows cast
in the woods
a moment passed.
Scenes around us
might become
in the woods
a setting sun.
We’re but wording
written ink
in the woods
of how we think.
Thoughts emotions
are the lifestyles
in the woods.

Time Stands Still

Thoughts of stillness
will come alive
as our lifestyles
surely thrive.
Time stands still
within a frame
a timely moment
life’s attained.
Seasons grandeur
shines the best
as a seagull
found at rest.
It’s our decisions
that put in place
the timely manners
seasons taste.
Time stands still
with signs of life
found as glimmers
seasons thrive.
It’s the choices
that ones conceal
that make or break
as time stands still.

Cloudy Thoughts

Times envisioned
life that’s lost
finds directions
cloudy thoughts.
Scenes recorded
within the mind
find expressions
for life to find.
Cloudy thoughts
are often clues
seen as doorways
time should use.
Yet our thinking
might fall prey
to emotions
of yesterday.
Let life become
as it should be,
lessons learned
from history.
Don’t let fear to
be your boss.
Lessons come from
cloudy thoughts.

As A Sailboat

Time’s an ocean
winds that blow
helping sailboats
with their flow.
This is patterns
of our lives
time’s an ocean
ripples strive.
Waves display as
journey’s mile
as a sailboat
seeks the while.
Timeless moments
find a way
to sail across
another day.
As a sailboat
seas of blue
we are journeys
life anew.

Life As Water

Like a faucet
many pour
life and times
a scenic tour.
Yet some people
only find
life as water
on their mind.
Seen as ripples
maybe waves
as they journey
in their ways.
Pouring ideals
on ones sight
not allowing
others light.
Life as water
splashes true
things of me
and things of you.

Alone With Thoughts

Sat in a field
is a point and time
a scene so serene
of Heaven’s design
is a personal peace
where anger is lost
found in a time
alone with thoughts.
It could be a place
of anyone’s heart
found within time
for peaceful to start.
Alone with thoughts
is a poetic place
a time so divine
with smiles to enlace.
So sit in a field
of a harmonic motion
alone with thoughts
within Heaven’s ocean.
Seek for the joy
that once was lost
as you find peace
alone with thoughts.

Peace Is Just Perception

Time is but a mirror
reflecting sights we see
found in our perception
the scenes our eyes agree.
Peace is just a moment
that comes and goes away
leaving but only echoes
perceived in our own way.
Life is found reworded
the way ones wish to see
as with their perception
is what they wish to be.
We’re just like the ocean
with waves that crash ashore
bringing our perception
through a swinging door.
Scenes are found as beauty
while some are found not so
as we perceive our journeys
the only way we know.
Peace is just perception
of how things look to you
so take the time to clearly
see what’s really true.
Look within the journeys
and see what lives inside
then find the peace within it
to try to coincide.
Often it’s our egos
that cut us like a knife,
for peace is just perception
of how we live our life.

Morning Awakens

Strove as a moment
sought as a sight
morning awakens
to display its light.
Time might be failure
and life might be gray,
but morning awakens
to show a new day.
Lessons are gathered
with seasons of time
as morning awakens
to show what to find.
Peace is a portion
awaiting our view
as morning awakens
with each day anew.
Yet we are often
found looking awry
as morning awakens
with clouds in our sky.
Find then within you
the spirit of love
as morning awakens
from Heaven above.

Surreal’s A Breath

Our lives remembered
as heartbeats sway
are sometimes dreams
of a wanted array.
A simple little breath
of a time long ago
finds you remembering
the thoughts that grow.
Seasons so surreal
are blessings in time
a page from a journal
that’s now so divine.
Surreal’s a breath,
a field of grass green
as puppy dogs dance
while creating a scene.
A time of an essence
with wonderful style,
surreal’s a breath
that gives us a smile.

for July 29,  2017

Heaven is a door
that is opened with a heart
displayed by pure love.

Life filled with passion
gives way to a decision
to choose what that’s right.

Morsels of sweetness
can become sour emotions
if they’re filled with lies.

Time is a journey
that some only find sadness
due to decisions.

Life is like haiku
as the seasons show blessings
in words of decor.

Legions of people
get lost in a liars quest
and cause others Hell.

Storms of emotions
find their place in a rain cloud
that might have rainbows.

As summer gives way
autumn is right behind it
to welcome winter.

A murder of time
shouts out loud sounds of summer
as crows will gather.

Seasons of grandeur
brings forth many perceptions
that ones might not see.

Love is a flower
that will bloom when it’s watered
or die from the heat.

When time awakens
it unleashes many thoughts
for us to choose from.

With spring in your step
you can bounce over problems
but still find troubles.

Tomorrows lifestyle
might be like a reflection
that’s gone distorted.

Fields of discontent
can infect a continent
so seek true guidance.

Lessons of a rose
are that of seasonal flare
that will weather time.

Among so many
are the different values
that tear us apart.

The lives of many
rely on the lives of the few
that might not be right.

Now is a doorway
that yesterday created
to show tomorrow.

Enhancing lifestyles
can uncover misery
that they have hidden.

Beyond what we see
are things ones sight can’t follow
due to none belief.

Cherishing our things
can become baggage of life
if we can’t let go.
