While We Can


Hello my friends

It’s been a fairly nice passed week up here
in Maine.  The weather’s not been too bad.
Well about the eclipse.  We saw nothing at
all.  All we saw was the sun as we always do.
Through a hazy sky.  I’m guessing that we
are too far north to have seen the eclipse 🙂
Oh well,  Judy and I took a lot of pictures
of the sun LOL.  We also made a field trip
out of it.  Benny and Rocky were game for
it as they made a mad dash for the field as
happy as can be.  We took a few pictures of
us and the boys.  Anyways,  the sky never
changed.  It was just another day.  So what
else has gone on up here?  Well,  Tuesday,
our neighbors kids were playing in their
swimming pool.  I caught a glimpse of them
fishing in the pool using a toy rod and reel
and I took a few pictures of them.  LOL
they watched me as I took pictures.  Judy
and I went to town that day as well being
that Judy had to go for a blood test and
we needed a few groceries from Walmart.
The next day (Wednesday) we took the boys
out for another field trip.  I even got a few
selfies of Judy and I.  It was a beautiful day.
Thursday,  Judy and I just stayed indoors
and did some writing and painting.  The
next day (Friday) our grandson Christian
came to spend the weekend with us.  He’s
here right now,  but his mom will be by
sometime this evening to pick him up 🙁
We love having him here.  He’s 15 and I’m
sure that as he grows older,  he won’t want
to spend as much time with us.  So,  we’re
enjoying him while we can.  It’s supposed
to be a high of 69 F today with clear skies.
Right now at 4:15 PM it’s 69 F.  Tonight’s
low is supposed to be 42 F.  We’ve been
keeping tabs on Hurricane Harvey or as it
is now Tropical storm Harvey.  We have
yet to of seen any new footage of one of
our favorite spots in Texas (Port Aransas).
I hope and pray to God that it is not too
bad,  but I fear that it is just as Rockport
and many other places got hit as well as
the rain that is causing flooding in many
surrounding areas such as Victoria and
Houston.  We are praying for everyone.
God,  we ask You to provide angels to
help to ease all of the turmoil and bring
ones peace.  So,  back to my rambling
about Pearce’s Place.  Yesterday I took
a few selfies of Judy,  Christian and me :).
I always like to take a few pictures for
memories.  So,  I guess that’s all that I
can think of at the moment to tell you.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin
my search back through all that I have
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 little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title just about halfway back in
my rambling and now after checking I
see that it has not been used yet,  so it’s
away we go hehehe…

While We Can

Before it’s passed
a time should be
enjoyed with life
the things you see.
The moments move
and leave a place
a time remembered
of someone’s face.
While we can
we need to enjoy
the sights and sounds
that times deploy.
The time will pass
and all we know
will one day be
a scenes shadow.
Look for the good
in here and now
and let it to live
some way somehow.
Seek for the blessings
in life’s shifting sand,
we need to do it
when we can.

There ya go.  I hope you enjoyed the poem
and maybe even understood it LOL.  Also
I hope you enjoyed my rambling.  It seems
my mind is locked on all of my friends and
family in Texas right now.  All I can do is
pray that they are OK.  I have many friends
in Corpus Christi and the surrounding areas
such as Port Aransas etc.  Judy has been on
her computer trying to find pictures or info
on the damage of Port Aransas,  but it seems
that it is still blocked off.  Anyways,  back to
the journal.  We haven’t had much excitement
up here.  Our landlord is still dilly-dallying as
the addition gets verrrrrry slowwwwly done.
It better be done before winter or I might end
up losing my cool.  No pun intended.  Anyways
that’s about all that’s going on around here 🙂
So now I think 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 none extra this week 🙂
and one Christmas poem among them and
yes I once again 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 🙂
Now I believe it’s time for me to be searching
for that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a truly blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now,  where can that off switch be
hiding at this week?  Hmmmm,  searching.
There ya are ya ornery whippersnapper LOL.
Hiding behind my nose drops again are ya!
Well,  that once again is not the best place
to hide being I have 24 7 allergies hehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Life’s Decisions

A scene, a dream,
a wanted array,
becomes a time
in our display.
Decisive minds
of turbulent life
often have troubles
as blades of a knife.
Our life’s decisions
are pages to turn,
books of emotions,
times to discern.
A butterfly’s flight
might seem to be
a troublesome sight
of which you can see.
Yet Life’s decisions
are chosen in time,
scenes we’re allowing
to live in our mind.

Eden’s Flower

As life began
it brought to see
a flower of life
for you and me.
As moments grew
the time beheld
Eden’s flower
a story to tell.
The stage was set
for newest dawn
as man then learned
of right and wrong.
An apple was picked
and change began
the day and life
of woman and man.
God gave the beauty
of life thereof
as Eden’s flower
was filled with love.
Then was the time
that wonderful hour
to begin the phase
with Eden’s flower.

Reflecting Back

Thinking of a time
of a photograph,
a picture taken
of the distant past.
A purple flower,
an essence of spring,
reflecting back
in a mere daydream.
The minutes passed
and now are gone,
but in a photo
they still live on.
As a mere journey,
a heartbeat’s array,
reflecting back
has so much to say.
A story of life
and all that’s passed
becomes a flower
a shadowy cast.
That purple flower
still lives with me,
reflecting back
in my memory.

Fence Of Time

Planks nailed to
as walls of time
might create
a bad design.
A separator
to just divide
a persons view
of the other side.
A fence of time
is not the way
to bring us peace
another day.
We all have
our different views
of which we live
of false and trues.
We’re a family
with different lives
so let’s not kill with
guns and knives.
Lose the anger
and prejudice,
hug one another,
don’t hit with fist.
Yes we’re different
both you and I
but that’s no reason
to make ones die.
We all need to
surely find
a common bond
less fence of time.

Rocks Of Life

Troubles come
and troubles go
rocks of life
that times bestow.
Seasons withered
worn out shoes
rocks of life
our daily views.
Seen as gravel
losing grasp
rocks of life
are such a task.
Yet a flower
or blade of grass
rocks of life
might let to pass.
Then the troubles
might display
rocks of life
a learning way.
Making stronger
through the strife
lessons come from
rocks of life.

Dark Desert Highway

The roads traveled
within our minds
might be the darkest
with fearful designs.
A dark desert highway
that travels with fear
might be imagined
from life not too clear.
Times you’ve envisioned
with a scary display
might be your minds
dark desert highway.
Look for the brighter
outcomes that can be
and don’t let darkness
to be all you see.
A dark desert highway
of life to and fro
might just be your mind
on an imaginary road.

Thinking Of Snow

Found as a dreamworld
times that bestow
seasons of grandeur
is thinking of snow.
Life is as Christmas
with a season’s delight
as time is portioned
from day unto night.
Found just like Heaven
in a seasonal time
thinking of snow is
oh so divine.
As a page from a book
of wintertime’s ways
I’m often dreaming
of Christmassy days.
Thinking of snowflakes
then falling with grace
life is a blessing
that lands on my face.
Time as a portion
that icicles glow
and I find I’m often
thinking of snow.

Dreamy View

In life comes times
that once were dreams
as times sublime
of magical scenes.
Maybe imagined
moments displayed
a dreamy view
with waters to wade.
A scene a dream
of a daily vessel
sailing through life
of a watery nestle.
Ripples are found
to keep it afloat
this dreamy view
of a sailing boat.
A lonely ship
through lowly waves
begins its quest
to future days.
Found as a journey
within waters blue
amidst of a memory
dreamy view.

Autumn Tracks

Times of colors
red and gold
are as autumn
does unfold.
Seasons display
comes in view
colored brightly
Autumn tracks
as rails of roads
give the ways
for heavy loads.
Trains of life
are you and I
driven time of
where and why.
Like the colors
time reacts
you and I on
autumn tracks.

We Are Flowers

We are the seasons
as flowers grow
times emotions
lifetimes bestow.
We are flowers
blooming each day
colors as blossoms
in our own way.
The petals speak
with words of time
some as a sentence
that seems as a rhyme.
We are flowers
growing with life
often with pages
turning with strife.
Just as a book
a written display
we are flowers
of day after day.

for Aug 25,  2017

Looking at the sun
only shows you have no sense
and will end up blind.

Trial by fire
is often found of flowers
that weather winter.

A storm passing by
might have a story to tell
in its clouds above.

Scenes that pass us by
come to life within photos
that we have taken.

Time is a moment
that many count when worried,
that evades when safe.

Complexity kills
when our likenesses aren’t seen
and we pick and choose.

Life is a folly
filled with many points of pain
that people laugh at.

Decisions we make
construct the values we have
showing who we are.

Searching through problems
you might come out with answers
that might not seem right.

The price of our lives
is seen by many people
as a passing breeze.

Not allowing truth
does not mean it will not be,
as ones lies will fail.

Weathering seconds
could make minutes as hours
that drive us crazy.

Looking passed a time
does not mean that it’s not there,
for it still exists.

Flavors of water
are determined by the need
and the lack thereof.

Scented aromas
of an early morning dew
bring forth the living.

Change is perception
as we look at night and day
to see what that’s right.

Found in a heartbeat
is a lifetimes arrival
to do what it will.

Being rich with life
will fulfill you so much more
than having money.

Time is a doorway
that swings like a pendulum
as a clock of life.

Beyond the blue sky
there is a new existence
that we’ve yet to see.

Pathways through choices
bring bad and good to the light
showing the results.

Our purpose in life
is an invisible road
that God will expose.
