Maybe Not


Hello my friends

We had a little storm come through this
morning and boy did it make a racket 🙂
The lightning and thunder put on a show
as the rain came pouring down.  Judy and
I just laid in bed listening to the magical
show.  Fortunately I had let the boys out
to go potty before the rain began hehehe.
Thank God,  because getting them to go
outside when it’s raining is almost like a
dentist pulling teeth from a sasquatch LOL.
Plus Benny is afraid of thunder as well as
scared of the dark hehehe.  I think Rocky
is just scared of everything hehehe.  He’s
very shy.  Benny though is the first to go
and greet the neighbors dog LOL.  But
not Rocky.  He has of yet to of gotten
close enough to it to even smell it hehehe.
Rocky always runs back in the house when
anybody walks over from next door LOL.
Yep,  Benny ‘s the greeter and Rocky’s
the retreater 🙂  LOL sorry about that,
a little of the poet in me sneaking out 🙂
We’ve still not had any (what ones would
call) hot days,  but we’ve had a few warm
ones and the humidity made it a little
uncomfortable.  Today’s high is supposed
to be 74 F which it is right now at 2:22 PM.
The week isn’t supposed to be too bad with
a high for Monday and Tuesday supposed
to be 78 F and then the rest of the week in
the lower 70’s.  LOL summer wasn’t too
bad for us up here.  Even the bugs weren’t
too bad.  Not much happening around
this place.  Judy went out to eat with her
sisters Thursday.  I wish I had family or
friends to do things with.  Oh well,  that’s
my life.  Next topic.  It’s looking like we
might finally get our extension on the house
finished,  but it’s still too soon to tell LOL.
I told our landlord I hope it’s at least done
before winter,  being that then would be
too late.  I bought some screening that I’m
going to put up in the windows when he
finally gets done.  I also bought some knobs
for the windows to open the windows.  So
life goes on.  There seems to be not much
in this weeks schedule. Judy hasn’t got any
doctors appointments and as usual,  I have
nothing planned other than taking pictures
and writing as I do always Hahaha.  Not
much changes in my days and weeks other
than the time and date.  Yep,  the Pearce’s
Place is as exciting as always LOL. Rocky
just strolled in and laid down in his doggy
bed.  I’m guessing that Benny is still in the
living room on his favorite recliner hehehe.
Yep,  a real lively place Hahaha.  I think
I just found out why Rocky came slithering
in here.  It’s because he was a naughty boy
and pooped in the kitchen floor.  I heard
Judy scold him and put him outside.  I did
think it strange that Rocky didn’t come in
here wanting treats or anything.  He knew
he screwed up.  He’s a Shih Tzu.  What can
I say.  They’re one of the most stubborn
breeds of dogs.  On a good note, it’s the
first time in a long while that he’s pooped
in the house.  He’s sitting on the back steps
now pouting LOL.  Either Judy or I will
let him back in after a bit,  but he’s gotta
know that doing potty in the house is not
acceptable and he will be punished for it.
We love our boys,  but unfortunately you
cannot punish dogs as humans being that
they do not understand every thing we
say.  LOL to them it’s gotta sound like
Charlie Browns teachers.  Bla bla bla bla
bla bla,  bla bla NO,  BAD DOG,  bla bla.
So we try to teach them by showing them
what they did wrong and say no and maybe
even give them a little spanking just enough
that they understand to a somewhat degree
what they did wrong and that it is not where
to do it.  Then we put them outside to show
them where they are to do their daily routine.
We do thank God for these little boys.  They
keep us entertained.  Yes they do every so
often get on our nerves,  but most of all they
fill our hearts with joy.  We have our fair
share of problems, but for the most part we
have many blessings.  I’m still lonely for
family and friends,  but I reckon I’ll survive.
Through the grace of God all things will be
well.  Maybe not as perfect as we would like
them to be,  but that’s life.  So I reckon it’s
time for me to be taking my little venture
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 tittle for today’s brand new
poem.  And so it’s away I go to that place
of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe I found a
decent title just a few lines back and now
after checking I see I have not used it yet
and so it shall be used today Mwahahaha 🙂

Maybe Not

Now’s a story
filled with ways
things proportioned
in our days.
Maybe not
the life we wish
as a turnstile
found delish.
Time’s a joker
playing games
with the portions
time attains.
Yet our wantings
of a lot
might be things of
maybe not.
Let your lifestyle
find a phase
maybe not of
wanting ways,
but of blessings
God gives you
changing how you
view each view.

I hope you enjoyed the poem and maybe
even understood it.  Of course the poem was
actually for me,  but I’ll share 🙂  Also I hope
you enjoyed all of my rambling.  I hope it did
not bore you too much hehehe.  No matter 🙂
If it brought a little grin to your face,  then it
did its purpose.  Oh yea,  we had a visit from
our grandson Christian.  He came last Monday
and stayed with us till Wednesday.  It was a
good visit.  We took a few pictures of him.  He
is growing so freaking fast.  He’s 15 soon to
be 16 next month.  Yep,  he was born almost
a month before Judy and I were married 🙂
Anyways,  that’s about all I’ve got for you
to ramble about LOL.  So I guess it’s time
for me to be telling you what I tell you every
week and that is I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with
an added 3 which ups the total to 13 and
no I do not believe in that being bad luck 🙂
If that were the case,  I feel sorry for all of
the 13 year olds out there hehehe.  Oh an yes
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.  I reckon
now 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
is left of it and a truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Ok, now where is that off switch hiding this
week?  Hmmmm,  LOL I think I see some
movement from within my batteries that
I have in the package they came in.  Yep,
it’s hiding in there.  Hahaha a little cramped
in there wasn’t it LOL!   Better luck next time.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S.  One of the poems is a birthday
poem that I wrote for my granddaugter
Sami 🙂

Another Way

Among a time
a choice is found,
another way
to get around.
It might seem
to turn and twist,
something that
you can’t resist.
But then one day
the path might be
another way
for you to see.
A scenic route,
a dusty road
might display
your times abode.
A time and place
to find your cue,
another way
a better you.

Two Ducks

As shallow waters
show their sign
a little image
comes to mind.
Some birds within
a water’s way,
two ducks seen
another day.
Within their view
is such a scene
that creates
a wondrous dream.
This is a moment
a time divine
that can unleash
inside your mind.
A place created
as two ducks swim
that helps peaceful
to then begin.
It doesn’t have to
be something seen
to become found
inside of a dream.

Upon The Tracks

Rails of life
that time rolls on
might display
a time long gone.
Homebound trains
of now and then
might fall prey
to moments sin.
Leaving trails
an Earthly flow
upon the tracks
of to and fro.
People watching
wondering why
your train of time
is do or die.
For sometimes
the truth will be
that we’ve strayed
a slight degree.
Following trails
without the facts
we might find Hell
upon the tracks.

Heart That Glows
(Happy Birthday Sami)

This little girl
of moments gaze
has a heart
of wondrous ways.
She shares love
and peace to all
this heart that glows
to never fall.
She’s growing fast
as time moves on
this heart that glows
that shares a song.
It’s true passion
that drives her life
that of love
for ones with strife.
This heart that glows
is growing bolder
as today
she’s a little older.

Tons of love
from Grandma and Grandpa

A Little Light

The light of life
displays a place
a moment’s time
a smiling face.
A simple time
a day a week
a little light
of time to seek.
A memory
of days gone by
becomes a sight
of times reply.
A little light
becomes a lot,
special scenes
that time forgot.
Yet a photo
brings to life
a little light
to help survive.
A time and place
a memory
a special time
in history.
A little glimmer
a little glow
a little light
will surely show.
Beyond the days
that passed us by
lives a time
we can’t deny.
A special time
of way back when
a little light
that did begin.
That memory
of times delight
started with
a little light.

Castle Of Love

The castle walls
a timeless view
prepares a gaze
for me and you.
The walls may seem
too high to climb
the castle of love
that’s so divine.
Heartbeats sway
with do and doubt
a castle of love
is so devout.
Time is burning
with hope so true
for ones in love
to find the view.
Feeding a moment
with but a scene
a time and place
that seems a dream.
The castle of love
is a Heavenly place
filled with blessings
and full of grace.

Like A Flower

Time’s a status
built with love
as it flutters
like a dove.
Like a flower
love will bloom
bringing hearts
in time attune.
Life’s an essence
like a rose
seen as beauty
time bestows.
As a pageant
heart’s will be
seen to blossom
true and free.
Yet so many
will be found
like a flower
with a frown.
Not with blooms,
but petals fell
leaving tracks
of pain’s detail.
Like a photo
time can bloom
as a moment
from cocoon.
Opening surely
to empower
Heaven’s beauty
like a flower.

Drop By Drop

Seeds of a life
come pouring down
finding threshold
on the ground.
Drop by drop
our lives may pour
as a storm cloud’s
timeless tour.
Bringing rhythms
down to dance
drop by drop
to then enhance.
We’re the drops
of now and then
seen to sometimes
face the wind.
Yet the storm clouds
times impale
might have lessons
then to tell.

Three Crows

Within our yard
and distant trees
three crows sit
in mornings breeze.
Squawking songs
of their own style,
three crows sit
with a little smile.
They’re often found
out our back door
squawking talking
like times before.
Every morning
on a summer’s day
I can hear them
squawk away.
These three crows
are said to be
a murder of the
crow degree.

Like A Wave

Sometimes life
is like a wave
crashing thrashing
day by day.
Seasons burdens
come to head
like a wave of
time’s bloodshed.
Yet the story
can grow free
giving blessings
soon the see.
Like a wave
that crashed ashore
life can be then
so much more.
Journey’s trodden
right and wrong
strength acquired
making strong.
Giving blessings
day by day
lessons from a
crashing wave.

Edge Of The Pier

Our lives might seem
too close to change
as time becomes then
oh so strange.
Yet at the edge
of tomorrow’s door
the pier can release
anew to explore.
The edge of the pier
is a scary sight
often displaying
what’s wrong and right.
The seasons of life
might seem as Hell
as time goes its way
as a deep ocean swell.
Then as exhaustion
brings forth your view
the edge of the pier
might seem really blue.
We’ve got a choice
to seek God sincere
and find the blessings
at the edge of the pier.

At The Dock

Time’s a story
to explore
as the moments
come ashore.
Life is scary,
but can be
a special time
for you to see.
At the dock
of days desires
life can be
as burning fires,
but the flames
can be of peace
as a heartbeat
to release.
Showing how
to skip a rock,
then so peaceful
at the dock.

Time Of Peace

With accusations
of worldly deeds
many are planting
a world of weeds.
Take a little breath
and breathe in air
life of a seasonal
heavenly flair.
Time of peace
is a moment to see
that can bring smiles
to you and to me.
Lose all the anger
and find peace within,
then let some hopeful
to somehow begin.
A smile from nature
a scenic embrace
a time of peace
we need not to waste.

for Aug 12,  2017

Time’s often wasted
and minutes will tick ahead
leaving only dreams.

Amidst a moment
lives variables of choice
that could make or break.

Little known answers
create questions in our minds
filled with illusions.

Struggling for life
one might seek a breath of air
in an empty well.

Watching the night sky
takes many on a journey
through choices and dreams.

Looking for a sign
for the time to do or not,
might leave you empty.

Morning brings chances
in form of minutes counted
that many will waste.

A taste of Heaven
can sour a taste of evil
and bring forth a change.

The edge of fruitful
holds a another vision
that walks on the fence.

Without first thinking
our footsteps could land in muck
leading to despair.

The portrait of life
is one we are all writing
within our actions.

Living for moments
can cause you to not to see
the best that can be.

Now is a lifetime
that will soon be a shadow
of our memories.

Searching for truthful
might land you in a few lies
that will tarnish you.

Perception of time
is but a second believed
as minutes are gone.

Time never stands still,
because it’s always moving
within the seconds.

Lost within a dream
many will lose track of the truth
and find deception.

Flowers of springtime
that were once lost in winter
find chances to bloom.

The length of a rope
only matters when needed,
but it must be rope.

Seeking for others
that have your same desires,
might unleash a flaw.

Often our judgments
will come right back in our face
as we are then judged.

Sought from a flower
is the chance which to blossom
and become noticed.
