Hello my friends

Did ya miss me?  Judy and I drove to Texas
on the 4th and made it there on the 6th which
was a Friday.  We spent a few days with my
mom and sister as well as visited with my
daughter and her new hubby as well as a few
friends that I haven’t seen in a decade or so.
It was really great seeing all of them,  but it
was sad having to leave so very soon.  I wasn’t
able to see many of my friends and family due
to lack of time.  We still had a great time.  We
hope to maybe one day return for yet another
visit,  or maybe some can come up to see us.
Benny and Rocky were good boys.  They were
on their best behavior.  Rocky did not have
1 accident while he was there and that was my
biggest fear about bringing him LOL.  Benny
is never one to worry about.  Though he did
get on our nerves barking at every sound he
heard and being in the city,  there were a lot
of sounds.  He still barks at our neighbors
when they close doors or rev there engines
to head out,  but he’s getting better hehehe.
I took over a 1000 photos on our trip to
Texas and back LOL.  Of course many of
them were either repeats or blurry due to the
lack of sunlight 🙂  None the less I got a lot
of great pictures as well as many pictures
of family and friends while we were in Texas
and I’m thankful for that.  So,  it’s back to
the journals 🙂  I bet ya didn’t even miss me.
No matter,  I’m back.  The weather has been
not too bad here lately.  A little chilly,  but
for October,  not too bad.  We haven’t done
much since we got back home other than
our regular stuff like going grocery shopping
and Judy’s doctor visit. Of course we still
watch out favorite television programs LOL.
Judy managed to get the DVR set to record
a few of our favorite programs while we were
gone,  but many of them we’ll have to watch
on dish on demand.  Our grandson Christian
came and spent this weekend with us.  His
mom was supposed to pick him up after she
got off work today (Sunday),  but she called
just a bit ago to say she’s not gonna make
it.  She hit a deer on the way over.  She said
she’s OK,  but her car is totaled.  Thank God
she is OK.  She said the police were on the
way and Judy headed out with Christian to
go pick her up to take her and him home.  I
had to stay home with the boys.  No room
for us all LOL.  I didn’t think that the boys
would ride too well in the back behind the
seat 🙂  Anyways,  only one of us needed to
go, so I stayed home.  I’ve told Judy to use
her bright lights whenever possible for that
very reason.  It looks like Helena will be
having to get another car.  Though I am
so relieved that she was not hurt.  Cars can
be replaced,  people cannot.  So,  it’s just
me and the boys here hanging out together.
If Judy isn’t back in time I’ll record a few
of our TV programs for us to watch later.
Not much else is going on.  God has kept
us safe.  His many angels as well as loved
ones of ours that are watching over us are
always giving us energy to continue through
the problematic turnstiles.  Thank You God
for all of the blessings You have given us.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin my
little quest 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 little
place of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe
I found a fairly good title to use just a few
lines back.  Now to see if I can do anything
at all with it hehehe.  Here goes…


The storms in life
we often find
become a special
point in time.
A scene remembered
that life conceived
might have brought
sometime relieved.
A blessing found
through thick and thin
relieved the pain
to again begin.
We might so often
discover a course
a time of life
with Hells recourse
Some puzzle pieces
might fall together
to then become
a life forever.
A better time
from all the pain
relieved in life
to show a gain.
So many times
what we believed
was just a time
to be relieved.

So,  there ya go.  I hope the poem made sense
to you 🙂  Also I hope you enjoyed my rambling.
I have been working on my new book and I’ve
already got a 4th of book 6 written.  It seems
I have found something that I’m good at LOL.
Back years ago when I did my first now called
poetry picture,  I never thought that I would
be putting them in books.  Especially as many
that I have done.  It just goes to show that we
can never be sure of what we will be doing in
the future.  The future can change with just
a little nudge from life.  Don’t be discouraged if
things are not going well right now,  because
things can change. Of course things can get
bad,  but have faith that God will pull you
through.  Judy just got back home.  She said
that she almost hit a few deer on the way to
get Helena.  She said deer were all over the
place for some reason.  Anyways, she made
it there and back safe and sound.  LOL now
she knows why I am always saying use the
high beams when you are able hehehehehe
I reckon 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.  Yep 10 more
poems with an added 8 and 3 of them are
Christmas poems.  Also I 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 begin my search for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful and blessed week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Ok,  where
are ya hiding ya ornery off switch?  You’ve
had 2 weeks to try to find a good hiding
spot LOL.  Oh my,  I believe I see some
movement from behind my K2 meter 🙂
and I don’t think it’s a ghost hehehehehe.
I see ya you little whippersnapper.  You
still have problems remaining still so as
to not be found huh LOL.  Try harder.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Rocky Shores

Life of ages
back and forth
leads a pathway
scenic course.
We’re as ships
that sail in time
rocky shores
we’ve yet to find.
Many lessons
will be found
on the days
we run aground.
Sometimes life
will just become
rocky shores
of setting sun.
Let the moments
find their oars
lead away from
rocky shores.

Through a day
of life and love
changes come
from up above.
Like an eclipse
life might be
as a portrait
ones can see.
Through our lives
of setting suns
time might be as
beating drums.
As an eclipse
hides from view
what a moment
is so true.
Hearts of fashion
come in sight
sometimes daytime
found as night.
So as time is
not so clear
look beyond it
search to hear.
Voices of our
life and times
might eclipse the
greatest times.
Seasons in
the days we see
might become
our history.
Then might fill
a moments list
as emotions
times eclipse.

Distant Scenes

Seconds journeys
turn to days
as the minutes
change their phase.
Distant scenes
of black and white
might unfold
a wondrous sight.
An ocean dream
or memory
might one day
be now to see.
As distant scenes
come into view
the sight might be
a sea of blue.
With a faded sky
that time displays
the distant scenes
are greatest days.

Grasses Green

With every step
of mind and soul
time becomes
a moments goal.
With grasses green
and seasons style,
time becomes
a wondrous while.
So many stages
now and then
are remembered
bright and dim.
Our survival
begins with breath,
a moment’s time
of more or less.
We might find
uncertain ways,
the grasses green
of distant days.
Such as moments,
autumns design
the grasses green,
a different find.
Leaves of color
red and gold
the days become
a story told.
Found as journeys
our eyes have seen
the colors change
with grasses green.

Winter’s Big Scene

A grand illusion
that becomes so real
is a scene,  a dream
that hands can feel.
The story comes true
as a page in a book
winter’s big scene
a Christmassy look.
It is but a moment
that time displays
moments of blessings
to heal the grays.
Bringing in stages
of sights to and fro
some as a landscape
filled full of snow.
Christmases essence
is a wonderful thing
found as a fraction
of all that is seen.
Many of the blessings
are hidden from view
winter’s big scene
such a wonderful hue.

Sailing Through

As life goes on
and pages turn
sailing through
gives much to earn.
Scenes we see
as time goes by
become the days
we’re asking why.
Some as seconds,
some as weeks,
sailing through
gives little peeks.
Signs of times
we now recall
while we’re sailing
large and small.
The ocean’s mind
within our days
sailing through
gives much to gaze.
Life might seem
as only pain
sailing through
each time again.
Yet the moments
might teach well
the time’s design
with each detail.
Lessons showing
what to do
when again we’re
sailing through.

Remember A Flower

Amidst a season
that flowers bloom
seek to remember
April to June.
The height of color
of springtime’s days,
remember a flower
of a moments gaze.
Look within you,
remember a rose,
a time’s design
that life bestows.
Remember a flower
that gave you a smile
as time went on
for a little while.
Now but a memoir
our eyes did devour
is life at its best,
remember a flower.

Rocky Trails

Like a storm cloud
time might seem
rocky trails
or rushing stream.
Paths encountered
age to age
might be rocky
filled with rage.
Let the pathways
find some peace
as your anger
you release.
Seek the doorways
through the mind
that are peaceful
time to time.
Allow the past as
lessons learned
rocky trails
of time discerned.
Let your rage that
life details
find some peace on
rocky trails.

Tiny Ripples

Life’s a lesson
now and then
seen as ripples
in the wind.
A life of seasons
might portray
tiny ripples
in a way.
Sometimes life
with our desires
brings about
a ton of fires.
Tiny ripples
then become
problems found
each setting sun.
Let your life to
find release
tiny ripples
filled with peace.
As the ripples
form their way
find a smile
in day to day.

Winter’s Mirage

As sunlight beacons
in the winter sky
ones might imagine
snowflakes to fly.
A mere mirage
of a scenic day
is formed within time
in a wonderful way.
With a hazy view
of time and place,
winter’s mirage
is a Christmas taste.
A snowy landscape
that’s oh so divine
is a heavenly scene
of a wondrous time.
A God given moment
of a snowy montage
is a Christmassy scene
of winter’s mirage.

Sometime Somewhere

Beyond imagination
comes a place to see.
an emotional moment
with your mind set free.
Sometime somewhere
there might be a sight,
perceived as a blessing
as a little night light.
The light might expand
to a much grander view
sometime somewhere
that is guiding you.
The light might be angels
that Lord God provides
to guide you as a ship
through oceans of tides.
Beyond what you see
might be blessings of life
to heal you when weary
and help end your strife.
So look for the lighthouse
that time might display
sometime somewhere
and find a new day.

Haunted Scenes

Sights we see
as life and times
might just be
within our minds.
Haunted scenes
might just display
our thoughts within
each passing day.
The certain sights
that fear us most
might just be
some happy ghost.
They just seem
to you real scary
as their spirits
often tarry.
Don’t let moments
times details
of haunted scenes
put fear in sails.
Look for beauty
in all the while
and haunted scenes
will give a smile.

Just Breathe

Take a breath
and breathe today
a breath of life
a wondrous way.
Allow your mind
to find some peace
amidst the day
with times release.
Lose the anger
within a time
and then breathe in
a new design.
Find the blessings
less to grieve
take a breath then
and just breathe.

Passing Minds

Time’s perplexing,
life that’s seen
found in autumn’s
colored sheen.
Leaves reflecting
certain hues,
life’s amazement
times infuse.
Seen as paintings
life’s portrayed
passing minds
are then inlaid.
As a dirt road
shows its place
passing minds
right then embrace.
Finding blessings
certain signs,
life awakens
passing minds.

Distant Shores

Found as journeys
of the mind
distant shores
are sure to find.
Scenes we’ve seen
and held inside
became the essence
far and wide.
Distant shores
of life and stage
became but only
the turn of a page.
Times remembered
that seem unreal
might become
a flavored field.
A field that connects
a time or two
with distant shores
with waters blue.
Time might flourish
as your mind explores
amidst your memoirs
distant shores.

Tales Of Life

Driven with hopeful,
perplexed by time
our tales of life
might live in our mind.
Scenes we encountered
timeless they seem,
our tales of life
might be just a dream.
Sometimes a roadway
or train track’s details
might share the story
of riding the rails.
Sometimes a story
will become too grand
as tales of life
are timeless to stand.
Stood by a train track
and looking to see
our tales of life
might become history.
So live in truthful
as you strive ahead
and tales of life
won’t be all that’s spread.
Seek for the better
of times given way
to display your journeys
of truth day to day.
Find a moments peace
that’s not tales of life
through a little prayer
that is lesser of strife.

Cosmic Moon

Nighttime’s portrayal
of a cloud filled sky
shows a cosmic moon
that seems to fly by.
It seems as an echo
a timeless crusade
on through the clouds
so magically made.
A Halloween night
is a wondrous design
a time that I find
that fills up my mind.
As ghost and goblins
come into view
neath a cosmic moon
with a silvery hue.
The clouds highlight
this special theme
as a momentous time
within Halloween.
The stars are hidden
as it comes attune,
the Halloween night
with a cosmic moon.

Winter Drive

With scenes of white
and snow filled way
a winter drive
is on display.
The whitest hue
that comes alive
is found within
a winter drive.
The light of day
becomes a theme
with scenes of white
just as a dream.
A cold snowy day
of Christmastime
becomes a stage,
a scene so divine.
The air’s so fresh
as time portrays
a sweet winter drive
with great displays.
Life is so cheerful
as snow comes alive
with Christmas scenes
on a winter drive.

for Oct 19,  2017

Today might alarm
what tomorrow might become
as worry will grow.

Sight of a flower
can be essence of springtime
or the end of summer.

Angels from Heaven
might be strangers on the street
that you see daily.

Tears of a moment
can become joy of a life
that went to Heaven.

Without a raindrop
life can become desolate
leaving only dust.

Change can be a choice
to become another form
that’s better in time.

In the light of day
there might be hidden moments
that night only shows.

The storms of our lives
can come from our own choices
and what we accept.

Our dreams are as fuel
to give us hope for better
beyond what we see.

Misleading ventures
bring forth many illusions
that are just a scam.

Allowing ones lies
to live and breathe as the truth
can cause much trouble.

Life as a flower
blooms with much distinction
to tell what it is.

A mere circumstance
can become as a mountain
if allowed to grow.

Within the darkness
holds many things we can’t see
that live in daylight.

Counting your blessings
could find you beyond numbers,
for blessings are great.

Sometimes a second
can seem as many hours
through our impatience.

Life in the fast lane
can provide arrays of pain
from hurried lessons.

Today marks a time
that yesterday knew not of,
but just a forecast.

Lost in a whirlwind
your life might seem without help,
but help is through prayer.

Chance is a moment
that comes and goes through our lives
and might reappear.

Carrying yesterday
into today and tomorrow
might prevent your growth.

Losing direction
can become a great teacher
of which way to go.
