The Factor


Hello my friends

I hope life is treating you well.  It’s been
a bit of a lax world around here.  There’s
not been much happening that I can think
of that’s worth talking about.  Judy had a
appointment in Presque Isle Wednesday to
have cortisone shots in her knees.  We then
stopped off and KFC/Taco Bell and got us
some dinner for later that night.  I of course
took pictures there and to as I always do 🙂
While Judy was in the doctors office I went
around looking for things to take pictures
of LOL.  I walked down to the little pond
and as usual there were a ton of ducks and
also a two people sitting on the bench just
enjoying the sights.  I said smile and they
let me take their picture 🙂  I took pictures
of ducks,  flowers and anything else I could
see that looked photo worthy hehehe.  Yep
a typical day for me.  I haven’t taken many
pictures since that day.  Though Monday
of last week our neighbors had a bonfire
that lit up the night.  I took some pictures
of that LOL.  Judy had craft night over
at her sister’s house last night.  She made
a wind chime using CD’s and other things.
She’s quite creative.  I’m still writing my
poetry pictures.  So far I’ve written 110 for
volume 5 of Pearce’s Poetry Pictures.  50
more to go along with picking out the cover
picture that I want to use as well as the last
page to put the about me section in and then
convert them all to PDF.  Yes I know that
might sound like mumbo jumbo to you 🙂
No matter,  I’ll get it published some time
next month if all goes well.  So other than
that,  not much else is going on around
the Pearce’s Place.  God is still watching
over us,  guiding and protecting us.  The
summer days have not been too awful bad
up here thank God.  There’s many things
that we need to thank God for.  Helping
Judy and I to find one another and these
boys that keep our home bouncing with
love.  Yes we have a few bad times and we
even lose our tempers from time to time,
but that is human.  The factor is to forgive
and maybe not forget, but at least leave it
in the past.  We love one another and God
is the glue that bonds us together.  I say
thank You once again my Lord.  Now to
begin my search 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.  I believe I
may have stumbled upon a decent title just
a few lines back and now after checking I
see that I have not used it as of yet,  and
so it’s “Away we go”  LOL a little Jackie
Gleason there.  Here goes…

The Factor

Timeless treasures
now and then
are the factor
lose or win.
Sometimes losing
is better to do
when all you have
is a dismal view.
Time’s a factor
that represents
many thresholds
ones intents.
Make the factor
the best you can be
by changing daily
the views you see.
Often it’s us
our eyesight alone
that views the factor
we’ve always known.
Let God’s angels
to help you view
the factor of love
in all you do.

Well,  there ya go.  Another of my efforts to
make sense hehehe.  I hope it at least made
sense to you hehehe a little.  If it didn’t then
Oh Well LOL.  Life goes on.  I also hope you
found a little peace in my rambling.  Hehehe if
not,  then it at least gave ya something to do
for a little while 🙂  So as I said earlier,  there’s
not much to talk about.  It’s been a peaceful
week for the passed few days.  With that said
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 poems
with 5 extra this week with 2 Christmas poems.
Also,  I wrote once again,  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.  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 most wonderful weekend or what-
ever is left of it and a truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now to begin my search for ye ole off switch 🙂
Hmm,  where oh where can that off switch be?
LOL It looks like I see a little movement from
behind my infrared camera.  Yep,  there ya are.
That camera is one of my smaller cameras LOL.
Why didn’t you pick one of the bigger ones?
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Combined Together

We are life
our different styles
combined together
time compiles.
Views displayed
should not be skin,
but blood of life
found deep within.
We are the colors
an autumn design
found together
seasons combined.
Life is artwork
a blessing to be
combined together
for hearts to see.
See the true beauty
in times endeavor
found in us all
combined together.

Christmas Phase

August sunshine
makes me view
snowy dreams
of winter’s hue.
In the window
time displays
hopes and dreams
of Christmas phase.
Seeing snowflakes
that decorate
winter’s style
and things to make.
Rivers flowing
seem to cease
snow upon them
giving peace.
Then some treetops
will unfold
Christmas phase
to then behold.

Through The Snow

Winter’s pathways
fair and white
display then
a wondrous sight.
A time of season
oh so cold
seen in essence
times of old.
Through the snow
there is a scene
a time and place
now in between.
Summers now just
holding fast
to its ways
just like the past.
Yet the snowy
life I know
is the best when
through the snow.
Daylight glimmers
through the clouds
seen by winter
as love shrouds,
but while summer
holds its place
autumn’s coming
soon to face.
Then comes winter
with its show
footprints gleaming
through the snow.

Fishing For Peace

Sometimes fishing
can procure
good and bad
without a lure.
Peaceful scenes
that time displays
may of been with
waiting days.
Fishing for peace
as time moves on
needs some patience
dusk to dawn.
Not letting hurry
to interfere
and be all that you
see and hear.
Let life’s waters
find relief
with prayer lures
fishing for peace.

Heavenly Light

Sometimes seconds
will seem to be
the best of a time
for eyes to see.
A heavenly light
seen up above
can look just like
a snow-white dove.
As with a season
of heavenly light
time can become
a feeling just right.
Found as a window
a time to view
the heavenly light
will shine on though.
Often as snowflakes
that winters inlay
the heavenly light
is brighter each day.

Thoughts As Wind

Birds in flight
a day of peace,
might inlay
a time’s release.
Scenes of beauty
with windy ways
can become
some better days.
Found emotions
with do or die,
thoughts as wind
begin to fly.
Find the essence
within your view,
set them free
in a sky of blue.
Don’t let others
hold you down,
thoughts as wind
can fly around.
Seeking beauty
in each design
might be better
in winds of time.
Allowing moments
as they will,
raindrops on
a windowsill.
Seeking surely
beginning to end,
some better days
thoughts as wind.

Time Is Faint

From a distance
things we view,
might just have
a different hue.
Faint perception
scenes we see,
could become
our history.
Time is faint
as years go by,
bringing questions
how and why.
That is when we
should look true,
finding shadows
there and to.
Learning lessons
times constraint,
within moments
time is faint.

View Of Life

Those days of old
that find a way
to live and breathe
in now today
are often scenes
our lives recall
a view of life
from spring to fall.
The scented days
of now and then
will come right back
to begin again.
With memories
of a wondrous way
a time of life
another day.
A field of flowers
brings to view
a summer’s day
a life anew.
A view of life
that moments show
becomes a time
that comes aglow.

Journeys Of Mind

Seasons of moments
bring forth a time
often like clockwork
found in the mind.
Sometimes illusions
are all that we see
when we take journeys
on through history.
Journeys of mind
are seasons request
maybe through trees
of a seasonal zest.
A pathway is trodden
with time on and on
as life is depicting
the things that are gone.
Look for the blessings
of artwork divine
found as remembered
journeys of mind.

Smiles Of Life

Often sadness
will inlay
the future form
of day to day.
Smiles of life
can cure a frown
when you’re feeling
a little down.
Often seasons
will bring change
life and times
a little strange.
A moments frown
might become
your day to day
each beating drum.
Let the moment
lose its strife
as you find
the smiles of life.

Night’s Persuasion

As moonlight shines
it opens a door
to dreams of stories
and so much more.
Maybe a castle
in moonlight gaze
lit up in the night
with candles ablaze.
Life in a dreamworld
can become anything
as sight of the moon
or a loon that sings.
Night’s persuasion
is a glimpse to see
as waters ripple
oh so silently.
Time is a blessing
a moment’s occasion
found in a dreamworld
a night’s persuasion.

Like A River

Time’s a flavor
that eye’s perceive
found as portions
ones misconceive.
Like a river
moments will flow
displaying ripples
where all we go.
Within the scenes
there might begin
the flow of rivers
of where and when.
The destinations
might have pain
upon some rocks
to then attain,
but the rocks
will strengthen you
as time goes on
the river view.
Life’s a pebble
that rivers play
timeless scenes
of day after day.
An actor’s stage
that waters flow
is as our lives
that times bestow.
The path is made
as a lesson giver
given from God
just like a river.

Alone In A Crowd

Like but a glance
in a looking glass
many only see
their time to pass.
Alone in a crowd
so many stand
looking around
for an empty hand.
Seeking for others
to grab on to,
alone in a crowd
is all they view.
A wild strawberry
is all many see,
a sight unto time
of you and of me.
Hidden from view
ones might be near,
people just waiting
for you to see clear.
Your vision might be
as a passing time,
alone in a crowd
within your mind.

Season’s Revival

Echoes of heartbeats
begin with the snow
season’s revival
how blessings bestow.
Christmassy scenes
come alive in the view
as that of stories
of lifetimes come true.
Season’s revival
is a time wish to see
essence of Christmas
as a tall snowy tree.
Life is as artwork
relived in the mind,
season’s revival
of a magical time.
Stories of Christmas
so many tell true
as season’s revival
that wonderful view.

Magical Times

Life is a feeling
that many don’t feel,
those magical settings
that moments conceal.
So many people
will only see pain
and not see the joy
that moments attain.
Yes there is sadness
and yes there is strife,
but it shouldn’t be
all you see in your life.
Look for the goodness
that clouds might release
and find a rainbow
that’s filled full of peace.
The seasons of heartbeats
can form great designs
to be in remembrance,
those magical times.

for Aug 19,  2017

Timeless survival
comes in form of a blessing
ones misunderstand.

Finding direction
can become aggravating
when all by yourself.

A passing storm cloud
might have a little rainbow
to share with the sky.

The sounds of heartbeats
can become rhythms to see
as time runs its course.

Tomorrows blessings
might be hidden in today
awaiting their time.

Looking for the truth
you might find it in a lie
that someone can’t hide.

Picturing doorways
often leads to conclusions
that might not be right.

A flower is life
that displays its emotions
as it’s blossoming.

Someone’s umbrella
might unveil what fears them most
as often it’s used.

Believing in things
does not always require sight,
for air you can’t see.

See passed your failures
and find what all you have learned,
then use the lessons.

Truth is a doorway
that opens wide with wisdom
to open new doors.

The petals of life
are as a rose found in bloom,
they will come and go.

Searching through rain clouds
might show proof of some lightning
hidden in the grey.

Beyond what we see
might be a whole other view
that might change our minds.

Living on the edge
often creates dilemmas
that we can’t handle.

Simple blades of grass
have a tremendous story
that involves some weeds.

Stopping for a breath
might be the thing that saves you
from meeting demise.

Sunflowers of days
become special sights to see
within the sunlight.

Many molecules
are so small we can’t see them
without microscopes.

Dreams of a sunrise
can become a reality
if you don’t sleep late.

Without our eyesight
we might hear a faint moment
that we focused on.
