Things Happen


Hello my friends

It’s been a fairly decent week.  Last Tuesday
I got the windows in the front porch screened.
They turned out pretty good.  Yeppers now we
can sit out on the porch during the summer and
open the windows to enjoy the fresh air.  Judy
and I bought Tootsie Roll Pops for the kids
that we are fairly sure will come to our house
trick or treating LOL.  Both of our neighbors
have little kids and they end up over here ever
so often wanting to play with our boys Benny
and Rocky.  Benny will sit out in the driveway
looking for them from time to time hehehe.  He
loves kids.  So,  what else is going on around
the Pearce’s Place?  Well,  I have begun doing
a little work here and there on our porch so it
will not be so drafty such as putting up a seal
between the house and it.  I have one side yet
to do and it should be good until I can buy
some spray insulation foam to seal it up tight.
When we get paid next month I’m going to call
and order us some heating oil.  We’ve still got
between a half and a quarter of a tank of oil,
but that won’t make it through winter.  I’ll
order us 100 or more gallons and that should
do us for a while if all goes well.  We’ve got a
high wind warning for us from 2 AM to 8 AM
in the morning.  Winds south 25 to 35 MPH
with gust up to 60 MPH.  LOL If you do not
hear from us next Sunday,  we might of blown
away.  We live in a mobile home ya know LOL.
I’ve still been busy working on my new book,
writing more poems for pictures.  You’d think
I would of run out of ideas by now wouldn’t
ya hehehe?  Nope,  I’m still moving along 🙂
Judy hasn’t done any painting in the last few
days,  but I’m sure she’ll get back to it.  She
took a little break from painting to work on
a poetry book that her and our grandson are
doing together.  Yep,  Judy and Christian now
have a book of poetry together and it is titled
Look Up.  It can be found on Judy’s Amazon
page along with all of Judy’s other books. I’m
very proud of Judy.  She’s a great writer.  Her
and I began together writing and here we are
today with multiple books published.  Who’d
a thunk it LOL!  So,  what else is there to tell
ya?  Well,  Judy and her sisters are going down
to Bangor to see their brother Ricky.  He’s in
the hospital not doing so well.  Please keep him
in your prayers.  They had to remove his right
leg.  He had already had his left leg amputated
due to gangrene about 2 years ago and infection
got bad making him to lose his right leg or die.
God is always in control even if we cannot see
or feel it.  Things happen that are far beyond
our comprehension.  The answers are in Heaven.
Well I’m gonna make this short as this passed
week has not been very eventful hehehehe and
so I guess it’s time for me to be looking back
on all that I’ve written here,  to see if I can find
me 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 place of my recollection that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a fairly decent title just a few lines back and
I see that I have not used it yet,  so here goes…

Things Happen

Seen are struggles
times display
moments problems
day to day.
Yes things happen
times accord
that often are
from our Lord.
We may never
see the gain
until we’ve stood
in time’s constrain.
All the lessons
times conclude
might just happen
to change your mood.
Yes things happen
timeless so,
some from God
to help us grow.

There ya go.  I hope the poem made some form
of sense to ya and my rambling didn’t put ya to
sleep 🙂  There’s not much else to tell you,  being
as I said before,  this passed week has been not
so busy.  Not many pictures,  so who knows what
I will use for stationery hehehe!  I hope you have
a safe and happy Halloween, if you celebrate it 🙂
We are only giving the kids lollipops being that
Halloween is for the kids anyways.  Our favorite
time of year is CHRISTMAS.  We’ve got all kinds
of Christmas stuff laid around the house as well
as 2 Christmas trees in the living room HoHoHo.
I look like Santa Claus LOL,  so why not hehehe.
So,  I reckon it’s time for me to tell you what I
tell you almost every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems with an added 5 which ups the total to 15.
There are 4 Christmas poems among them too 🙂
I also 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 silly
off switch,  but not before I wish you a blessed
weekend or what ever is left of it and a truly
wonderful God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  So to begin my search.
Where can that mischievous off switch be hiding?
Hmm,  I think I see something that’s out of place.
I don’t remember my camera having a sway to
it LOL.  Sheesh,  if you could just learn to sit
still.  I might not of seen ya if you had not been
rocking back and forth hehehe.  Practice being
still 🙂  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Together In Life

We all will bleed
in cutting style,
a frown of life
or joyful smile.
The days begin
with you and I
together in life
when times apply.
Written is seen
the words of time
together in life
our own design.
We might not be
so same in sight,
but humanity
shows our light.
Together in life
we join the days
the way we look
of a certain phase.
We splash waters,
times we’ve seen
together in life
our own cuisine.

It Comes And Goes

Sights of autumn
winter too
become the life
within our view.
Just as a stage
of settings suns
it comes and goes
and often runs.
Times remembered
a photograph
become the scenes
of distant past.
It comes and goes
as waves of grain
within seconds
times attain.
A mere reflection
might expose
the life and times
it comes and goes.

Snowy Branches

Mid day season
snowy white
displays branches
times delight.
As a moment
comes in phase
life of winter
is to gaze.
Snowy branches
holding true
the heavy weight
within my view.
Seen as Christmas
joy is found
when I surely
look around.
Mid day season
Christmas finds
snowy branches
on my mind.

Times So Special

A field of dreams,
a wondrous view,
a scenic sight
from old to new.
Within a photo
times I see
become the best
of history.
Times so special
way back when
our photographs
remember them.
A smiling face
from love so sweet
becomes a time
wished to repeat.
As life goes on
and days pass by
times so special
seem to fly.
The moments find
a place to rest
within my mind
to be the best.
For as the days
find minutes gone
time so special
then moves on.
Yet the moments
still live true,
times so special
a photo view.

Dream Weaver

The night sky displays
a sight which to swoon
dream weavers essence
of the silvery moon.
It displays a story
that becomes our dreams
a weaver of blessings
and wonderful scenes.
The night is a special
place to find stars
the same as the planets
such as Venus and Mars.
A sight to remember
as the days come to pass
that special experience
of a moon shadow cast.
The seasons envelop
that wonderful glow
as the sky’s story teller
winter displays on snow.
The shine of moonlight
is a dream weavers dance
found as a portion
of timeless romance.

Wintery Style

Remembering pictures,
some photos of winter
time is the artwork
found front and center.
A wintery style
of a seasonal quest
becomes as an ocean
with white snowy zest.
Seeming as artwork
the times I remember,
a Christmastime scene
is a bright burning ember.
An old winter style
filled with imagination
becomes as a blessing
with snows accumulation.
The time is a place
that’s locked in my mind
as a wintery style
of a great point and time.
It makes me so happy
and gives me a smile
that time I remember,
that wintery style.

Old Winter Road

The country scenes
of times to pass
become the moments
that surely last.
Times remembered
to surely unfold
will display the scenes
of an old winter road.
As but a doorway
to another dimension
an old winter road
comes to our attention.
It brings forth a style
of a Christmassy scene
painted by winter
to become as a dream.
An old winter road
is a time I recall,
filled full of beauty
and stands out so tall.
It’s but a portion
of what that’s bestowed,
this wintertime sight
of an old winter road.

Cattails Of Summer

Painted moments
timeless true
cattails of summer
come into view.
As they are painted
they are but a scene
a time and a flavor
in sunshine agleam.
These are the times
an artist perception,
a scene of summer,
a moments reflection.
Life by a lakeside
or little pond
cattails of summer
are seen to respond.
Drinking the nectars
of waters on way
cattails of summer
become a display.
Found standing high
by the waters flow
cattails of summer
will most surely grow.

Peaceful Life

Ripples in water
with peace in its flow
brings forth direction
with times to bestow.
Just as the segments
of stages of scenes
a peaceful life is
found in our dreams.
We can bring forth
those dreams into true
and make them to be
the life that we view.
It might take some time
to become as real
as a peaceful life
that your hands can feel.
Yet it can be done
as a moment in time
as a peaceful life
inside of your mind.

Time Of Life

Roads well traveled
sights we’ve scene
show the signs
of joy extreme.
Many directions
of scenic drives
as houses display
the Christmas lives.
Sweet decorations
of there and a time
find Christmas seen
as a time so divine.
The wonders of God
and birth of His Son
became as a time
that’s second to none.
A sweet time of life
with a photo drive
to view all the scenes
of Christmas alive.
Time’s we remember
are greatest to be
that sweet time of life
that is now history.
It brings forth a glow
of a wonderful day,
a time I remember
of a magical way.
Stars would glisten
as moments bestowed
this time of life,
a Christmas road.

Within A While

As but a fraction
of life that we see,
time is a porthole
to be what will be.
A distant scene
of a field of time
within a while
will fill the mind.
It brings into view
a wonderful sight
that grows beyond
our day and night.
Within a while
time might repeat
a sight that we saw
a wonderful treat.
Food for the eyes
to fill them so full
within a while
a heavenly jewel.
It might seem faint
this moment’s delight
as time moves along
from day unto night.
Yet as a mirror
inside of our mind
within a while
remembers a time.
This is but a scene
that time did compile
a wonderful sight
within a while.

A sight
we’ve heard
a timeless
a scene
a wanted
The life
we hear
is so
it brings
in view
a time
so true.
An endless
a great
a void
a time
Such as
a time
that God
has staged
an endless

Sight Of Autumn

A distant house,
a lakeside view
becomes a scene
with waters blue.
Sight of autumn
comes in phase
in this view
of distant days.
Colors changing
bringing sight
as the artwork
times delight.
A distant house
is at a glance
seen as autumns
leaves will dance.
As the minutes
bring their place
sight of autumn
does not waste.
It gives a view
for ones to see
as colors change
so joyfully.
Then the moments
pass on through
sight of autumn
there in view.
A lakeside house
is there to gaze
sight of autumn
wondrous days.

As Time Shall Pass

We often are found
looking back in time
at the lives we’ve had
and our past design.
As time shall pass
it will bring in view
the sight of things
of another hue.
Some bridges burned
leaving memories
of certain times
in distant seas.
Seas are our vision
of how we perceive
the times of life
we chose to weave.
A time and place
might expose a dream
as time shall pass
to a certain scene.
Like a reflection
as time shall pass
it leaves memories
that then shall last.

Lost In The Clouds

Beyond our thinking
thoughts begin
the timeless sights
from bright to dim.
Seen as illusions
that drift in the sky,
minds might wander,
our minds might fly.
Lost in the clouds
as a moment’s unrest
our lives might seem
as an ongoing test.
The lessons will come
as time moves along,
some seeming right,
some seeming wrong.
Yet there are lessons
that come into view,
teaching us truly
what we are to do.
So, if your mind
is lost in the clouds
look for the lessons
a moment endows.

for Oct 28,  2017

Reliving a time
that was just but a moment
might become distraught.

As connect the dots
many will seek for answers
in clouds of design.

Forming simple thoughts
often brings forth illusions
that we imagine.

When the wind’s blowing
it’s speaking what it’s thinking
as words of a breeze.

Life can be changes
that begin by letting go
and changing your view.

Shadows of ourselves
are reflections in others
that we might not like.

Various turnstiles
may incorporate lessons
hidden in the view.

Windstorms of ages
might hide rainbows within them
as lightning and sound.

Shame is a teacher
that shows our imperfection
through our humility.

When life gives problems
there are ways to work through them
that are well hidden.

Chance will come knocking
as the days display doorways
that hide their motive.

An ocean of waves
creates a vast turbulence
with a ship at sea.

Flowers of lifestyles
begin their ongoing quest
to bloom emotion.

Glimmers of sunlight
bring the sight of life to see
as daylight meets dark.

Counting lucky stars
can become precarious
as the starlight dims.

Scenes within time frames
can display much confusion
that others see clear.

Without yesterday
there is nothing that is learned,
but what now teaches.

The past is the past,
for it is now memories,
so learn the lessons.

Challenging strangers
shows your own stupidity,
for they might be friends.

With a simple breath
life can blow out a candle
or light a new one.

Shelter from a storm
is a place that is stronger
than where that you are.

As a door opens
it gives chances for right now
that need your caution.
