Try Again


Hello my friends

It’s been a wintery week and the snows
have begun.  Not too much yet,  but I’m
sure we will get our share as we always do.
We’ve been busy decorating our house, on
the inside of course.  I don’t own a ladder
so climbing up to hang Christmas lights on
the outside of the house is pretty much out
of the question LOL.  Monday we drove to
town to pay the light bill and do a little bit
of shopping.  Not much has happened here
other then that.  I’ve been working more on
my poetry pictures.  Only 26 more to do and
then I get started formatting it and getting
volume 6 published.  I write a lot don’t I 🙂
Yep,  it keeps me busy.  If it weren’t for my
writing,  I might go bonkers at times LOL.
Being stuck up here with none of my friends
makes it hard,  but it could be a lot worse.
I do have a beautiful loving wife and 2 dogs,
or our boys as we call them 🙂 that keep us
entertained and when Judy’s not here, they
make fairly decent company except for the
fact that they’re not good with conversation
being they don’t speak English and I don’t
do dog.  Ok I might speak it a little,  but not
enough to carry on a conversation hehehe.
We got a bit of snow last night and early
this morning.  It looked so pretty,  I had
to go outside and take a few pictures of it.
Our landlord plowed this morning,  but we
had nowhere to go,  but it was good just
in case an emergency arose.  I went out
today and hung our Pearce’s sign and just
a bit ago,  Judy and I hung Christmas
lights inside of our porch.  It looks very
pretty now.  They are solar light sensor
Christmas lights and I put the solar cells
facing the windows so they can charge
when the sun comes up.  LOL we even
put solar Christmas lights around the
lighthouse that Judy and I built hehehe.
The lighthouse is now on the porch out
of the weather.  It’s needing a bit of touch
up work.  It survived last winter,  but it
we didn’t think it would survive another.
So as soon as it’s been touched up,  it will
be ready to set outside again to soak up
those solar rays and shine in the night
once again.  LOL we live such an exciting
life don’t we,  NOT hehehe.  Nope,  we
enjoy the smaller things such as watching
TV together or just sitting in the room
together writing and painting.  We did
give the boys haircuts.  The groomers
that we had before are retiring and only
keeping a small few to groom and we
didn’t make the list,  so Judy and I went
and bought us some new better quality
dog shears that are self sharpening and
we’re going to start giving them haircuts
every 3 months.  So their next haircut
is due February 🙂  As long as we don’t
let their hair grow out too much,  we
can handle it 🙂  We might have to buy
new shears once a year,  but that is still
a whole lot cheaper than paying some
groomer anyways LOL.  So,  what else
has gone on around the Pearce’s Place?
Well,  Judy went to her sister’s house
last night for craft night and yes it was
snowing.  After me trudging out to the
mailbox through the snow I called and
left a message on Judy’s phone telling
her that she might wanna come home
a little sooner than planned being even
with me walking I had trouble telling
where the driveway began and where
it ended LOL.  She called me before
she left and said she is on her way,  but
she’s letting the car warm up to clear
the windows.  LOL when she got home,
she told me that when she got to our
driveway,  she slid passed it and had to
back up and try again hehehe.  She
said she followed the foot trail that I
made when walking out to check the
mail to keep her on the driveway LOL.
I was so relieved when she got home 🙂
LOL so were the boys.  They were all
excited,  but then they’re excited even
when either of us walks outside for just
a brief and walk back inside.  🙂 They
no nothing of time.  It could be a day,
an hour or just for a moment,  but
they see it all the same hehehe.  Gotta
love them boys.  God has been good
to us.  He has made sure we’ve had
all that we need.  We are so thankful.
Thank you God for never giving up on
me even when I had given up on myself.
You showed me that life is more than
what we see.  It’s what we are yet to see
that makes it much better.  So I try
not to focus on the problems of today,
but the miracles that have yet begun.
Now,  I believe it’s time for me to begin
my little journey 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 place of my
recollection that I always like to call,
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title a little less than a third of
the way back in my rambling and now
after checking I see that it has not been
used as of yet,  but use it shall be today.
Here goes…

Try Again

When life throws you
a rotten time
use that moment
to find sublime.
As pages of life
leave an empty stare
try again
a different flair.
Seek the styles
beyond what’s known
and find your place
as flesh and bone.
Don’t let problems
hold you back.
Try again
to get on track.
So if life is
pouring rain,
look for rainbows
and try again.

I hope you liked the poem and maybe even
understood it hehehe.  Also I hope that you
enjoyed my rambling.  I do seem to always
find things to ramble about don’t I hehehe!
Well,  I can’t think of anything else to tell
you other than what I tell you almost every
week and that is I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with
an extra 4 as well as 8 Christmas poems in
the mix LOL.  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.  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 blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now to
find that ornery off switch.  Looking high
and low around the room.  Hmm,  that
looks strange.  I don’t remember my eye
drops dancing.  LOL Ok,  so you gave my
eyedrops a another chance for a hiding
place.  Still it would work much better if
you would STAY STILL hehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Christmas Essence

Time’s a dream
a scenic sight
as a moment’s
Christmas light.
That of a story
a displayed design
shows the scenes
of Christmastime.
Christmas essence
a seasonal hue,
times remembered
that come in view.
We might recall
a passionate time,
a day,  a flavor
then so divine.
Christmas essence
at it’s very heart,
times remembered
God’s work of art.

So Joyful

Yesterdays shadows
of Christmassy sights
display the patterns
of twinkling lights.
Times we remember
of Christmassy days
might now be only
of yesterdays ways.
But as the season
brings forth a glance
moments so joyful
we might see enhance.
Joy in the singing
of songs oh so sweet,
reminding of seasons
with good food to eat.
Then as the memoir
becomes more clear,
you might so joyful
find hope in this year.

Searching For Santa

Our little doggy
he so loves the snow
as he sits on a mound
that moments bestow.
Each day he watches
and searches the sky,
searching for Santa
as time just flies by.
As Christmas nears us
he searches each day,
looking for Santa
within his great sleigh.
Our little dog is
a snow dog for sure,
for each day in winter
the snow’s as a lure.
It coaxes him outside
to look to the sky
searching for Santa,
when he gets nearby.

Flying With Time

Earth and sky
displays a sight,
a time of thought
in moments flight.
A season’s quest
begins its phase
flying with time
sometimes a haze.
We might seem alone
as times will pass,
but find yet another
shadow that cast.
There might be one
that flies the same
time and space
yet different name.
Their wings of life
might then transcend
but fly the time
as a hidden friend.
This friend might be
one that you see,
but as of now
you don’t agree.
They might be love
with no applaud,
as Heavens angel
sent from God.
Then when troubles
are on your mind
there is another
flying with time.

Views We Miss

Passing scenes
of now and then
might be views
just like the wind.
Blowing briskly
passing through
becoming times
we miss the view.
Maybe horses
within a stall,
the views we miss
might come to call.
Yet the moments
times display
become essence
of another day.
So slow down
and enjoy life
and don’t let time
to end in strife.
Views we miss
might be the best
giving problems
a moment’s rest.

I’m Amazed

Christmas lights
of timeless views
display sights
of wondrous hues
and I’m amazed
at everything
the love I see
and songs we sing.
Times a glimmer
large and small
a scenic wonder’s
ooh and awe.
Yes I’m amazed
at Christmas themes
displayed times
of wondrous scenes.
Lights all glowing
brightly so,
within green grass
or maybe snow.
The season shines
of all I’ve gazed
and this is why
that I’m amazed.

Love Of Life

Joyful settings
Christmas scenes
times remembered
just like dreams.
Love of life,
a burning ember
shines so bright
amidst December.
Time’s a moment
that ones lose
leaving loved ones
just confused.
Find the blessings,
husband and wife
or friends so true
with love of life.

Fantastic Dreams

When seeing storm clouds
that lifetimes attain
look for the rainbows
after the rain.
Don’t let the moments
of disheartened days
fill you with sadness
as cloud colored grays.
Some fantastic dreams
can bring into view
a lifestyle of hopeful
to live within you.
Dreaming is a blessing
that helps us survive,
sometimes fantastically
with visions alive.
Many of our burdens
are lessons to earn
that we often don’t see
as things we will learn.
The minutes and hours
of all that life seems
might become blessings
with fantastic dreams.

Peace Within

Searching scenes
amazing grace,
finds a moment’s
smiling face.
As a river’s
flowing scenes
peace is found
as fishing streams.
Life’s a pillow
to rest your head,
peace within
a heartbeats bed.
Like a journey
timeless view
peace within
gives life anew.
As a moment
does begin
we can find some
peace within.

Wandering Words

Looking for stories
with peaceful words
many will follow
a sad flock of birds.
Using bad judgment
to make it each day
can create lifestyles
that end a bit gray.
Wandering words
of a wondering soul
can say many things
with heavy a toll.
Riding as a passenger
and not as yourself
makes you a wanderer
to sit on life’s shelf.
Let God to guide you
through now and again
and cease the wandering
outwards and in.
Look for the mountains
of blessings to find
and you will one day
see that design.
Maybe not the same
as you wished to be,
but the best of a time
that you really need.
So don’t you be like
a lost flock of birds
flying around blindly
with wandering words.

Distant Sight

Through a doorway
life comes alive
as a distant time
on a scenic drive.
So many wonders
might come into view
as a distant sight
in waters of blue.
You might see ducks
just splashing around
as a distant sight,
a moment found.
Seen by a fountain
with great scenery
as a distant sight
for your eyes to see.
I saw this wonderful
sight so true
as a distant sight
that came into view.
It brought me joy
this awesome day
as a distant sight
took sadness away.

Light Of Christmas

White snow glistens
in evenings light
as that of Christmas
when seeking the sight.
Evenings shadows
are found to be
as the arrangements
for seekers to see.
Just like a story,
a Christmas design
the light shines brightly
in a moment’s mind.
Children are dreaming
of Santa in flight
found in his journey
on Christmas eve night.
The light of Christmas
lives now forevermore
as a sweet memory
with snowflakes to soar.
Time is of magic
when found in the eyes
of Children dreaming
of a Christmas surprise.
The season’s reflections
are found on display
in children’s heartbeats
in snow Christmas day.
Moment’s of grandeur
exists on their mind,
the light of Christmas
that is so divine.

My Winter Dreams

I have these dreams
of certain times,
the minutes passed
I wish to find.
My winter dreams
of snow of white
and memories
that I delight.
I have these dreams
each day so sweet
of winter scenes,
none can compete.
My winter dreams
of Christmas snow
that is so white
it seems to glow.
I have these dreams
of wondrous places
I’ve memorized
with smiling faces.
Each scene’s alive
as a Christmas stage
my winter dreams
of age to age.
I have these dreams
with seasons style,
a wondrous gaze
with a little smile.
These are scenes
that live with me.
My winter dreams
shall always be.

Our Two Dogs

In winter’s snow
our boys will play
bouncing around
from day to day.
Our two dogs
they bring us smiles
near Christmastime
as snow compiles.
They love to run
in the field of snow
that is so white
it seems to glow.
Our two dogs
are our little boys
and some snow balls
become toys.
I throw some out
for them the chase
and then watch each
smiling face.
They run and play
in seasons hue
near Christmastime
and sky of blue.
Christmas essence
shines with glee
as our two dogs
play happily.
Yes they’re our boys,
they’re never apart,
for our two dogs
are God’s work of art.

for Dec 9,  2017

The light of the day
shines miracles upon life
to help it to grow.

Change is perception
within our many viewpoints
we might disagree.

Leftovers of life
can become baggage of growth
that’s really a weed.

The sense of being
can be ones disillusion
in midst of a storm.

In times beginnings
there might be some redundance
that comes from endings.

As time passes by
it leaves shadows of itself
within the future.

A snowflake is life
as it floats down to the Earth
to become winter.

Life is like a rose
as blossoms with its colors
to become beauty.

Time is a question
that answers itself in time
with some confusion.

Seasons of windows
open and close with changes
that become our lives.

Today brings chances
to use yesterdays lessons,
so use them wisely.

Beyond what we see
is a spirit world of life
that we’ll one day see.

Holding too tightly
to ones that you care about,
might push them away.

Sharing and caring
needs to be done with kindness
or it’s just a thing.

Scenes we discover
might hold even more within
that’s beyond the sight.

Wishing for the moon
will not give you its glory,
but fill you with dreams.

Minutes tick faster
when worry is put in place,
but time is the same.

Lost in a turnstile
not knowing to leave or stay
finds many stagnant.

The root of evil
is the greed of a heartbeat
that only sees self.

Last place can be good
if it’s headed for trouble,
for first holds problems.

When diving head first
into the unknown of life
you might not land well.

A lonely person
might be lonely with many
due to perception.
