Hello my friends

It looks like winter is upon us.  No snow yet,
but it won’t be long.  It could start falling any
day now.  Of course it would not stick on the
ground,  being that the temperature must stay
below freezing for at least 2 or 3 days before
it will cool down enough to not melt the snow.
But then,   if it snows abundantly enough and
quickly,  it can accumulate and stay for a bit,
but then the snow acts as an insulator and if
the ground is still not cold enough,  it will melt
the snow of course with the help of the sun and
the weather.  So,  now you’ve had a little lesson
in snow accumulation hehehe.  Next topic.  It
looks like the doggy door will never get installed
We’ve had a couple of family members say that
they would install it for us,  but it’s still sitting
in the box it came in.  I guess this winter we will
have to do as we’ve been doing and that is let
them out the front door and then go and open
the door to the porch to let them outside so they
can go potty and whatever.  At least the porch
isn’t leaking like it was last winter.  Last winter
it had almost 2 inches of ice on the floor due to
the rain and the snow that got in through the
roof.  LOL there were a few times last winter
when it was actually snowing inside the front
porch.  At least we won’t have that problem
this winter 🙂 at least I hope we don’t Hahaha.
Right now at 4:30 PM it’s 44 F degrees.  Did
you remember to set your clocks back, if you
are in a state or whatever that does daylight
savings time.  I for one think it’s stupid.  It’s
not saving anything.  All it does is confuses
my inner clock.  The boys started trying to
get us up an hour early this morning being
they know nothing of daylight savings time 🙂
Being that Judy and I are night owls and stay
up till 4 AM on most nights,  we don’t get up
until around noon,  but at 11 AM both of the
boy were barking and all saying get up and
they were not taking no for an answer hehehe.
LOL I kept hollering lay down and they in
their own way kept saying,  NO it’s time to
get up.  LOL I got up to go to the bathroom
and when I came back I saw that Rocky had
hopped up in my spot and I said nope,  you
get back in your bed.  He hopped down and
went and laid down in his own bed,  but then
not much time went by before both him and
Benny were saying it’s time to get up LOL.
Please who ever is responsible,  STOP with
the daylight savings time.  It’s killing me!!!
For that matter,  if all of the countries and
states and cities are not gonna do it,  then
we shouldn’t have to do it.  It’s a waste of
time if ya get my drift hehehe.  So what else
is in the Pearce’s Place news.  Well,  Friday
I ordered us some heating oil for winter and
it should be delivered Monday and oh yea,
speaking of Monday,  it’s Judy’s birthday.
She’ll be the same age as me then hehehe.
We’re gonna get her a cake and then get us
some take out for dinner.  I might write her
a little birthday poem as I’ve done in the
past 🙂  Who knows!  Anyways,  we’re sort
of strapped for cash due to my purchase of
heating oil,  but I’ll try to make her day as
good as I can.  We’ll watch our favorite TV
programs and enjoy being together.  I am
so very proud of Judy for all that she has
done with her art and designs.  God put
us together before we even knew of each
others existence.  Time found its place.
God has a way of doing wonderful things
that we at the time might view as not so
good.  Our views are very short winded
and we can’t see the future, but only what
we can imagine and often our imagination
is in the wrong gear or just can’t perceive
what God can do.  So look passed what
we are able and understand that God has
abilities far beyond anything that we can
do.  Now I believe 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 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 may of
stumbled upon a decent title just a few
lines back and now after checking I see
that I’ve not used it,  so away we go…


Mirrored existence
might not look so well,
for what all we’re seeing
might display a fail.
Time is a painter
that often will explore,
showing our existence
as less or maybe more.
Yet the moments seen
might be just a time
found in existence
as only a rhyme.
A time that we’ve seen
that is just but a phase,
a moment’s existence
of some other days.
Found in confusion
the scenes might become
as that of a dewdrop
in mornings bright sun.
Yet as the minutes
become as we are,
God in the background
is our guiding star.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem and
maybe even understood it.  Also I hope you
enjoyed my rambling hehehe.  I do ramble 🙂
Often I ramble about silly stuff,  but if it helped
you to find some peace,  that’s great.  There’s
not much else to tell you except,  Judy’s brother
Ricky has been through the ringer.  He had
to have his other leg amputated due to a bad
infection.  The poor guy’s suffering with many
health issues.  The hospital has now sent him
back to the nursing home.  They said he was
doing better,  but in reality he might not live
much longer.  Please keep him and the family
in your prayers.  God is in control.  His will
shall be done.  Now,  I reckon it’s time for me
to be telling you what I tell you almost every
week and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 poems with an extra
5 which ups the count to 15.  No Christmas
poems this week 🙂  Maybe next week hehehe.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2
of either or both that you like.  Ok,  so now
I believe it’s time for me to begin my search
for that terrible at hiding off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful week
filled with blessings.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  OK,  so where is that
silly off switch hiding at this time?  Looking
around the room.  Hmm I think I spy with
my one good eye a bag of doggy treats that
should not be moving hehehe.  Yep there
ya are.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Moonlight Witch

The Halloween witch
flies high in the sky
holding to her broom
as she silently goes by.
The night sky is clear
as children walk about
while seeking for candy,
trick or treat they shout.
The witch is just smiling
as she watches to see
the joy in the kids eyes
as they each get candy.
The time ticks faster,
and the evening is gone
as the moonlight glows
from dusk unto dawn.
The moonlight witch
is just but a dream,
time we remember
heard of Halloween.
She flies with a broom
on Halloween night
this moonlight witch
on a Halloween flight.

Dressed For Halloween

Children will stroll
with garments on
seeking some candy
before it’s gone.
Walking up to doors
with bags in hand
they’ll trick or treat
this day so grand.
This evening shines
a Halloween sight,
children all dressed up
to seek their delight.
Morsels of goodness
and oh such a treat
children are seeking
something good to eat.
Candy’s of sweetness
in oh such a scene
the children are all
dressed for Halloween.

Looking Beyond

Time is a heartbeat,
a moment’s desire,
seconds and minutes
that create passions fire.
Scenes come alive
as the moments bestow
while looking beyond
where doorways will go.
Opening to mysteries
some heartbeats are seen
as they’re connected
in a magical dream.
Life is a journey
from then unto today
as footsteps create
such a timeless array.
Scenes come alive
as our pages are turned
in a book to tomorrow
that future’s discerned.
Written as a story
that is read in the mind
a fantastic memory
of a great point in time.
Life is but a memoir
of times burning ember,
scenes found as dreams
that so many remember.
God gives us ways
of seeing good that’s gone
as our heartbeats revive
while looking beyond.

Field Of Hope

Just but a moment
a time is perceived
as timeless encounters
the life spider weaved.
Seeming as junctions
between you and I
a field of hope shows
how time can fly by.
Leaving in its wake
is a sight for tomorrow
filled with the images
that many will borrow.
Taking from the scenes
a story which to tell
as a field of hope dream
just like a wishing well.
Cattle might be grazing
in this story of the mind
that one may remember
as a great point in time.
A country scene of life
that’s on a hilly slope
might be remembered,
a timeless field of hope.

Autumn Winds

Colors floating
from the trees,
autumn winds
make colored seas.
A little path,
an autumn trail,
is covered then
as leaves set sail.
The day moves on
as time transcends,
bringing changes
autumn winds.
Sights of beauty,
sights of fall,
autumn winds
display them all.
Seen as blessings,
time displays.
Autumn winds
begin their phase.
God’s own painting
colorful hues
autumn winds then
leaves chartreuse.

Setting Sun

The story of
a timeless tale
begins with words
and ships at sail.
Such a moment
can come true,
a voyage within
a sea of blue.
A setting sun
as times to pass
displays scenes
that seem to last.
The story of
a passing gaze
might become
another phase.
A setting sun,
a distant year
begins a path
to reappear.
Time moves on
and life is made
as a moment
seems to fade.
With memories
of days gone by
a setting sun
may cease to fly.
Sinking quickly
then from view
the setting sun
seeks time anew.

Signs Of God

Mountain scenes
of distant days
might become
another phase.
Times and places
found to see
can become
as majesty.
Signs of God
are found in place
for our hearts
to then embrace.
Lifelong journeys
times become,
seasons found
each rising sun.
Days to pass
become a find,
signs of God,
a wondrous time.
His Hands display
a timeless scene,
that might be
a rushing stream.
A mountain’s life
is counted true,
the time within
it comes in view.
These are scenes
the signs of God
that deserve our
hands applaud.

Those special times
of moments past
can be enhanced
in a photograph.
The scenes recalled
that fell in place
might then become
a timeless taste.
Enhanced emotions
remembered when
can fill the void
when feeling grim.
Some photographs,
a peaceful time
can calm the heart,
a stormy mind.
Enhanced portions
of memories
can bring back
a summer’s breeze.

New Perspective

While time might be
a distant view
our own perception
might need a new.
When the winds
blow troubles in
look for the good
within the wind.
A new perspective
can lighten the load,
as now and then
does not explode.
Allowing peaceful
within your mind
can change the view
from time to time.
A new perspective
on things you see
can display blessings
that God gave free.
Take heed a moment,
a God given scene,
maybe a lake
or grasses of green.
Look beyond that
and all that’s there,
a new perspective
on a breath of air.
Lose the negative
and find the good
a new perspective
the way you should.

Seams In Life

Found conclusions
in times displays
might be the seams
of yesterdays.
Seen are patterns
that time compiles,
the seams in life of
frowns and smiles.
It’s a journey
throughout a phase,
sometimes seen as
the better days.
The times we’ve seen
we misconstrued
might be the seams
of which elude.
Leaving patterns
found with strife,
that procured from
the seams of life.
But some good can
find a way,
through the seams,
a better day.
Lessons learned
as time bestows,
seams in life,
a moment grows.
Seeming timeless,
yet it’s counted,
seams in life
with good abounded.

Rainy Days

Storms will build
as clouds move in
and rainy days
will then begin.
Through the rain
might hide a show,
a moment’s scene,
a bright rainbow.
Those rainy days
can enlighten views,
life and times,
our daily news.
Through the clouds
that raindrops fall
some better days
might come to call.
The road your on
might show the signs
of rainy days
and time’s designs.
There might just be
a hidden view
in rainy days,
a brighter hue.

Children Play

Through the ages
times will show
how children play
and how they grow.
They’re our future
as time will pass,
learning from us,
shadows we cast.
Watching them play
makes time stand still
just for a moment
for life to fulfill.
They are the journey,
the hearts of time,
as children play
as rhythm and rhyme.
Hold to the seconds
that soon go away
and then remember
how children play.

Life as a ripple
seems as a wave
when life begins
a certain phase.
It might just be
an ocean of mind,
so mesmerizing
for future to find.
A ripple begins
and then bestows
a ship of arrival
filled full of woes.
Time can become
a better place,
such as a dream
in outer space.
So mesmerizing
as time moves on,
life can become
a beautiful song.
Sung as an ocean,
a moment divine,
life can become
a peaceful mind.
Found as a ripple,
a simple desire,
hearts can become
a raging fire.
Burning with love,
a God given way,
so mesmerizing,
a wonderful day.

The Leaves

We’re the leaves
that float and fall,
as time displays
its season’s call.
We watch and wait
for time to change,
as the leaves
of time and again.
Life’s a doorway
that changes phase,
it opens and closes
in different ways.
We’re the leaves
that gather true,
to make or break
the daily view.
Finding judgment,
the way we stand,
our point of time
might sink in sand.
We’re the leaves
with different hues,
walking in life
in different shoes.
The leaves of life
in times display
may hide from view
our will and way.
As a lifetime
turns and weaves,
we grow with life,
for we’re the leaves.

Evening’s View

Day comes to end
as evening displays
times and emotion
of its magical ways.
Maybe some clouds
or rain may procure
giving the evening
a scenic grand tour.
Signs of changes
in the atmosphere
might be of sight
or things we hear.
Trees might rustle,
blowing in the wind
as their leaves
of time transcend.
The light of day
may change its hue
as the beginning of
evening’s view.

Beyond what we see
is what many don’t believe,
but yet it is there.

The pages of our lives
might display many dog ears
to help us recall.

Found as a flavor
a moment might be sour
that turns out better.

Seasons of time frames
are as recipes for life
to enhance the view.

Morning has shadows
that are designed by sunshine
as God intended.

Patience is gathered
as life brings us misery
that we’re to deal with.

Without an action
life might just remain in place
with times of troubles.

As a flower grows
it begins a passageway
through buds and blossoms.

The doors and windows
of life that we encounter
may have mysteries.

The length of a day
is often our perception
of all that’s happened.

Amidst a rainbow
might be a journey through life
that created it.

Throughout our journey
we may stumble upon pain
that helps us to grow.

Life of a flower
is that of many blessings
of rain and sunshine.

Many emotions
create patterns we perceive
as what’s understood.

Being is seeing,
but also without a sight,
for some are like air.

Blessings of our lives
may be disguised as problems
that come as lessons.

While standing real still
the world keeps on rotating
providing our life.

Sharing a secret
and not knowing if it’s true
could create fire.

Need of a moment
might just be something wanted
we thought we needed.

Division of life
leaving many dishearten
creates loneliness.

Judging by color
or how that many may live
might corrupt your thoughts.

The storms of our lives
are creators of turnstiles
that help us to choose.
