Here And There


Hello my friends

It’s been yet another not so eventful week
these passed few days.  Nope,  not much to
tell other than our landlord has hired a guy
to finally power wash the back of our house
and finish up on the add on in front.  It’s
already looking a whole lot better.  We’re
going to have a doggie door installed onto
the add on door so all we have to do is to
open our front door and they can go out
the doggy door 🙂  Right now we’ve gotta
open the front door and also the add on
to let them out.  It has rained the last few
days.  Temperature wise,  it hasn’t been
too bad.  Right now at 4:30 PM it’s 66 F.
I think we’re on the decline of summer 🙂
This week’s high is supposed to be in the
mid 70’s.  But that can change as anyone
knows LOL.  It looks as though our new
neighbors have gotten settled in.  Judy and
I actually prefer to not have any neighbors,
but life goes on 🙂  LOL Benny barks every
time he hears one of their vehicles come
or go.  He’s not used to having neighbors 🙂
Rocky could actually care less one way or
the other LOL.  Anyways,  next topic.  Our
old microwave finally quit on us and so we
went to Walmart and got us another one.
It’s my favorite color,  RED.  Our grandson
Christian is coming tomorrow (Monday)
to spend a few days with us.  Chance,  our
oldest grandson might be installing our
doggy door for us in the next week or so.
So as you can see,  we lead a real exciting
life LOL.  Yeppers,  real exciting Hahaha.
Nope,  most of all we do is write,  paint and
watch our TV programs hehehe.  Oh yea,
and play with our boys,  Benny and Rocky.
Of course we both take a lot of pictures
of here and there and who and what LOL.
One thing for sure,  we can always find
something to do.  Maybe not exciting 🙂
but something.  I’ve been doing a lot of
writing and already got a little over half
of what I need done for my new book 🙂
Yes I write a lot hehehe.  Like you didn’t
already know that LOL.  LOL Rocky
just came running in here to get us and
he seemed serious Hahaha.  It turns out
that Benny had accidentally dropped his
dog cookie behind the futon and Rocky
wanted it,  but Benny would growl at him
every time he tried to crawl under it to
get it.  I reached and got the cookie and
gave it to Benny.  Benny took it and this
time ate it.  Rocky already ate the doggie
cooking that we gave him LOL.  Yeppers
excitement by the truck loads hehehe 🙂
The Pearce’s Place is filled with many
blessings and God watches over us every
day.  We still have our share of bad times,
but for the most part,  life is good aside
from these old aches and pains hehehe 🙂
Thank You Lord for keeping Your mighty
Hands over us preventing anything that
we cannot handle.  Now I believe it’s
time for me to be taking a little stroll 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 lil
place of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I
found a decent title just a few lines back
that I haven’t used yet.  Of course I’ve used
part of the title,  but this will work hehehe.
Now to try and write something that makes
sense using it hehehe.  Here goes 🙂

Here And There

Jumbled scenes
we often find
paint a picture
in our mind.
Life of wonders
filled with hues
sometimes reds,
sometimes blues.
Here and there
we might see
a portion of
our history.
As pages turn
to display words
we might find
a flock of birds.
Birds as stories
flying free
in the daily
things we see.
Time will often
show despair
through emotions
here and there.
So let blessings
come alive
letting angels
jump and jive.
Let the passed days
fall away
here and there now
as you pray.

There ya go.  That’s a little view inside of
my mind hehehe.  I never know what will
come out of my head LOL.  I just let the
thoughts come out as they will.  I will often
amaze myself as I look back on all that I
have written.  Over 11 thousand poems 🙂
It’s 63 F degrees now at 6:30 PM.  The low
for tonight or actually for early tomorrow
morning is supposed to be 47 F.  Not too
bad 🙂  There’s not much else to tell you
other than what I tell you almost every
week 🙂 and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems with 4 extras from my busy mind.
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.  So now 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 blessings filled week 🙂
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Ok,  so now,  where’s that ornery
off switch hiding this time hehehehehe?
Well,  you’re getting better.  But still,
do you always need to poke your head
up every 2 seconds to see if I can see
you LOL?  No,  I think not.  Why not
try this next week,  just staying put
and letting me find you LOL.  Yes I’m
aware that if you did that I would more
than likely never finish my journal,  but
at least stay still for a few minutes LOL.
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+4 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

To Turn Back Time

Shadows of our lives
display in certain times
as we each remember
those seasonal designs.
Turning back the clock
will not show so true
times of way back when
that were the daily view.
We tend to let the minutes
to become just history
then we will be finding
a distant memory.
Photos that encompass
the life and times before
and then to turn back time
would not unlock that door.
We cannot turn back time
to when we now remember,
because that time is gone
and just a burning ember.
Now might be of beauty,
but then may seem to shine.
Yet the lessons learned then
will leave to turn back time.

The Bench Of Time

Now might seem
to pass you by
as you sit
and wonder why.
The bench of time
is there each day
to hear you when
you stop to pray.
It waits each day
and wonders when
that you’ll come by
to sit again.
Time might seem
to be a race
leaving signs
upon your face.
Let yourself
to somehow find
some peace upon
the bench of time.

Journey Of the Mind

Standing in the waves
I took on many thoughts
a journey of the mind
that at times was really lost.
The minutes seemed endless
as the journey continued on
while standing in the waves
and humming a little song.
My mindset was of peace
as waves rolled in and out
displaying their own grace
an ocean without doubt.
I splashed within the waters
as waves then spoke to me
telling me of journeys
within the deep blue sea.
I sought to see a vessel
far out in the sea of blue
but I only saw then
this journey in my view.
It was a magical moment
I found in summertime
while strolling in the waves
on a journey of the mind.

On The Shore

Seasons in the sun
are seen as time to time
while a photo displays
a scene within the mind.
On the shore so scenic
I found myself alive
viewing all God’s treasures
that help us to survive.
Life is just a moment,
a passing time to see
on the shore of minutes
that all were given free.
God gave many blessings
to live and to adore,
yet we will so often
be seen just wanting more.
Let your daily journey
to find a moment’s peace
on the shore of Heaven
that Lord God gives release.

Tiny River

In a dream
a sight might be
a tiny river
so fancy free.
Flowing as a
rushing heart
finding peace
a work of art.
Tiny river
as our mind
seeks direction
life to find.
We are waters
rushing true
a tiny river
Many blessings
often flow
as a river
tiny though.
Yet the blessings
are not small,
for they conquer
largest wall.

A Little Walk

When troubles come
take a little walk
find peace with God
have a little talk.
Some peace will come
with every step
as time displays
where peace is kept.
Take a little walk
through natures life
and let it flourish
joy not strife.
Lose the emotions
that followed you
through a little walk
to a peaceful view.
Even if the walk
is just in your mind
take a little walk
and peace you’ll find.

As Time Begins

Just like a dream
a minute begins
turning the pages
of a camera lens.
Moments recorded
that we now recall
become as a lifetime
that now stands tall.
As life begins
it blows like a breeze
a seasonal dance
of grasses and trees.
They might seem faint
the remembered times
the ages of pages
that were so divine.
But life can be found
in a camera lens
the best of the days
as time begins.

A Moment Comes Alive

Living in a moment
creates a certain view
maybe of a doorway
swinging there and to.
Maybe of a park bench,
a scene beside the sea
or a time of splendor
within our history.
A moment comes alive
as a photo time partakes
turning into artwork
of which a minute makes.
Time is but a porthole
of synchronicity
stages of our lifestyles
that seem the same to see.
Minutes become as hours
of which we all survive
seeking for the minutes
that a moment comes alive.

Autumn Bridge

Seen on autumn days
are colors all compiled
as a scenic story,
a painting all run wild.
Colored found emotions
gathered then as seas
across an autumn bridge
as brightly colored leaves.
Now it’s just a memoir,
a simple picture view,
but it’s just an echo
of what will soon be true.
Another moment gathers
to insert with a smile
a time and place of wonder
that colors do compile.
Then the memories
will come to life again
an autumn bridge of time
for you to find therein.
Life will become pages
found in autumns book
giving then another
autumn bridge to look.

Heaven Is A Place

Bewildered emotions
will often steal smiles
as our perceptions
get lost many miles.
A scene so perplexing
that becomes our view
needs a little prayer
to find breath anew.
Sometimes a moment
a bird walking by
will give a little peace
with time to comply.
Following the images
of footprints in sand
can bring into view
a good place to stand.
Heaven is a place
that thrives to bestow
peace and tranquillity
to help us to grow.
As footprints in sand
a moment does release
time within time
to find a little peace.
A scene that awakens
a place to unwind
and fill you with love
and much more to find.
Heaven is a place
that is love so grand,
filled with God’s angels
to help us withstand.

A Time Reminds

One winter’s day
I found a place,
a moment’s time,
a snowy taste.
It was a scene
that came alive,
a moment’s time
to then survive.
A snowy scene,
a wondrous view,
a time reminds,
a whitish hue.
I stood real still
to photograph
this fine time
of now the past.
So many times
I’ve moved along
finding days
to then be gone.
We all have
those special finds,
a time to gaze,
a time reminds.

Passing Thoughts

Life is often
like the winds
blowing briskly
time transcends.
Feeling sadness
death displays
passing thoughts
of yesterdays.
Now’s a threshold
seen and said
as time’s passing
straight ahead.
Lose the sadness
within you.
See what joy
that can accrue.
Passing thoughts
of here and there
need at times
a little prayer.
For what all
that passed you by
might have reasons
how and why.

Bridge Of Dreams

Crossing over
footsteps made
brings so many
places laid.
Bridge of dreams
is scented true
with a wondrous
seasons view.
As remembered
heartbeats beat
often in the
living heat.
Bridge of dreams
becomes a day
in a moment
times display.
Found as feathers
in the wind
bridge of dreams
will never end.

Season’s Request

Found in life
is a time to see
a picture portion
that God gave free.
Scenes of beauty
now remembered
that of a time frame
Heaven delivered.
It’s a moment
that lives within
found in heartbeats
of now and then.
It’s now a dream
to help you to rest
a time you recall
a season’s request.

for Aug 5,  2017

Peace is in silence
which also thrives confusion
for what we can’t hear.

A look in the past
can bring to life mysteries
that now you wonder.

We are like flowers
as we bloom when we’re watered
and wither when dry.

Life is a spaceship
that flies to destinations
that might surprise us.

Love of a moment
might decrease as time is passed
due to new moments.

A shower of rain
is but ones situation
that is good or bad.

Ill gotten knowledge
can become poison of life
that comes back to haunt.

Blades of summer grass
know their end is getting near
as fall approaches.

Within summer’s night
there lives an owl of voices
which hoots many words.

Thunderstorms of life
are often just our teachers
that have a loud voice.

A gentle breeze blows
to give relief from summer
and fill us with peace.

Lost in emotion
could thrive so many choices
that might be real bad.

A shadow in time
might be our future worries
that right now perceives.

When in a hurry
life might pass by too quickly
with nothing good seen.

Trees in a forest
might just speak to other trees,
for they understand.

Flowers seeking life
put their gaze into the sky
for sunshine and rain.

As morning begins
it brings chances for new life
filled with new choices.

Lights that are shining
at the end of a tunnel
might be a warning.

Various doorways
will hide their truth within them
to show when you’re hooked.

The patterns of clouds
can display things imagined
through our perspective.

Thriving circumstance
brings to life many bad calls
with lack of knowledge.

Forever’s journey
is a pathway in the stars
that can’t be counted.
