As Of Now


Hello my friends

How’s life treating you?  It’s doing us pretty well.
Cold and snowy just like the season ordered LOL.
Yeppers,  it’s kind of wintery outside.  You have
to wear sunglasses just to look outside due to the
snow and its reflection of the sun.  Judy and I are
getting more and more into the Christmas spirit 🙂
We took some more pictures of us in our Christmas
attire and I’ve written tons more Christmas poems.
We’re going to have a peaceful Christmas right here
at home.  Yeppers,  we’re going to just enjoy life
taking it easy watching Christmas movies and eating
some nice Christmas dinner.  Though maybe not
the type of Christmas dinner you’ll have,  but it is
something we’ll enjoy hehehe.  Judy’s gonna make
some sausage balls and we bought a ham that is in
the freezer that will be our dinner as well as maybe
a few other things.  Neither of us is that fond of
turkey,  so we might get a chicken if we can afford
it.  Money’s kind of tight right now.  It’s gonna be
a cold one tonight.  Supposed to be -2 F by early
morning.  Right now at 5:30 it’s 6 F degrees.  Still,
not too bad 🙂  LOL when the boys have gotta go
outside to potty,  they make it quick hehehe and
they are ready to come back inside.  Especially
being that we gave them haircuts just a week or
so ago and they don’t have a ton of hair on them.
Although they do have their Christmas sweaters
on which helps to keep them warm.  We have
decided that if we are going to have to act as the
groomers for these boys,  we’re going to have to
cut their hair once every other month. so to keep
their hair from getting too long and all tangly 🙂
We bought some real good self sharpening dog
shears,  but we figure that even if we were to have
to buy new shears every year,  it would still be a
lot cheaper than paying the dog groomer LOL.
The days are getting a lot shorter now.  Of course
they have been getting shorter for a few weeks
now.  But now it seems that no sooner does the
sun come up that it is on its way down again in
the afternoon hehehe.  Yep,  a day last only 8
hours and 38 minutes now.  Sunrise is 7:09 AM
and sunset is 3:47 PM.  It doesn’t allow much
daylight to do anything and being we do not
have a security light other than all of our solar
powered motion sensor lights.  They help a
bunch and also make it where the boys can see
when they go out to go potty at night or in this
case the afternoon being it starts getting dark
at 3:47 PM Hahaha.  So,  what else is going on
around The Pearce’s Place?  Well,  actually
there’s not much going on.  Judy has done a few
paintings and I’ve been writing more Christmas
poems for our photos and her paintings hehehe.
Sometime in the next few months I might do
a book of just Christmas poetry pictures.  I’ve
already done 104 Christmas poetry pictures 🙂
Also I plan on us doing a book with all of the
poetry pictures I did using Judy’s paintings.
I am still in hopes of our books to finally 1
day start selling.  As of now,  the sales are
in the single digits,  but we have faith that
they will 1 day catch on.  So many of my
friends told me that if I ever published a
book then they would buy it or them and so
far just a few my friends have held to their
words.  No matter,  I’ll keep on writing and
Judy will keep on with her paintings ever
so often LOL.  It’s what keeps us sane or
should I say saner hehehe.  Well,  there’s
not much else to tell you.  God is still with
us and watching over us along with the
many angels that He has sent to keep an
eye on us.  We have our needs and even
a few of our wants thanks be it to God 🙂
Thank You God for never giving up on me.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin my
little journey back through all that I have
written here to see if I can find a word or
phrase that will work well 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 good title about a 3rd
of the way back in my rambling and now
after checking,  I see that I have not used
it as of yet and so then used it shall be.
Here goes…

As Of Now

Pointless actions
come and go
as we’re walking
to and fro.
Scenes become as
times and places
as of now
like times shoelaces.
Some will tangle
causing falls
leaving troubles
highest walls.
Yet the moments
that we view
as of now
might not be true.
For the minutes
shadows cast
as of now
might be the past.

There ya go,  I hope you liked and maybe even
understood the poem.  I also hope you enjoyed
my rambling.  Hopefully I said something that
made you smile or think or both hehehe.  I do
tend to ramble don’t I hehehe.  Yep,  there’s a
lot going on in this old brain of mine.  LOL it
might not make a lick of sense,  but there is a
lot going on in my noggin and it keeps me from
sleeping quite often Hahaha.  LOL did ya ever
know anyone that recited poetry when trying to
sleep or go to the bathroom hehehe.  I’m sure
that 1 day my old brain will burn out and that
will be the last you hear from me hehehe.  All
you will hear if you listen closely is the slight
sound of an old time off air tune that used to
be displayed in the old days of TV hehehehe 🙂
Oh well,  enough with that.  Now I believe 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 more
poems with an extra 2 and 11 of the poems
are Christmas poems.  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 with that said I guess it’s
time for me to begin my search for that off
switch that is terrible at hiding 🙂  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now,  where can that ornery off
switch be hiding this week?  Hmm,  looking
high and low all around the room.  LOL I
almost didn’t see ya this time,  but then my
eye caught a glimpse of something moving
behind my really thin external hard drive.
Yep,  I see ya hehehe.  You couldn’t quite get
as flat as that hard drive could ya hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Love Is The Way

Seek beyond greed
and look for a smile
found on a journey
of a hopeful style.
Find in the season
a love that will grow
timeless the essence
that heartbeats bestow.
Look beyond vision
and feel deep within
the seasonal blessings
that will then begin.
Lose all the sadness
of yesterday’s strife
and let love guide you
to a brand new life.
Look for the times
that come into play,
Christmas so joyful,
for love is the way.

Icy River

Winter’s glance
is found to be
an icy river
I can see.
As a painting
it lies still,
an icy river
wintery feel.
Its true beauty
comes so white
this icy river
such a sight.
Signs of winter
are its view
frozen over
Winter’s ways
are like a dream
an icy river
frozen stream.

Somewhere In Christmas

Life is a pattern
that many forsake
losing the memories
in a bottomless lake.
So many only see
the misery and grime
and don’t see the joy
of Christmastime.
Somewhere somehow
the sad needs a smile
somewhere in Christmas
of a seasonal style.
Look beyond now
and see what can be
somewhere on beyond
right now that you see.
Life is a pattern
of which we can change
by losing the baggage
of times so insane.
Let loose the strings
of yesterdays strife
and find now today
a much better life.
Somewhere in Christmas
a scene can be found,
the sight of a new day
if you’ll look around.
Look now for better
with a wondrous appeal
somewhere in Christmas
some good you can feel.

Down a road
to seasons sight
we drove on
to our delight.
We saw scenes
a wondrous view
to Christmasville
a time anew.
Roads were clear
with snow beside
as we went on
our scenic ride.
We imagined
sights we’d see
at Christmasville
so fancy free.
We sang songs
of times appeal
on our drive
to Christmasville.

Season’s Sight

Amidst a moment
of snow of white
I saw a scene
in season’s sight.
It was Christmassy
yet in the scene,
I saw no sign
of red, blue or green.
No lights twinkling,
but yet I could tell
it was of Christmas,
I know so well.
It had of the essence
a Christmassy flair,
a seasonal joy
filled with fresh air.
For just a moment
it seemed as a dream
with season’s sight
and snow all agleam.
It made me smile
to see this place
and my heart
was filled with grace.
This season’s sight
was such to gaze,
it brought me joy
for coming days.
Within this view
of evening’s delight
I felt blessed
with season’s sight.

A Magical Way

A cold snowy sight,
a picturesque hue
brings forth delight
and dreams to come true.
Its essence is sweet
as a Christmassy day
built upon moments
in a magical way.
Those sweet memories
of the times long ago
are the seeds to unleash
some white fallen snow.
As a painting deep within
of which you remember,
it’s a magical scene
that’s found in December.
Such a wondrous display
on a cold snowy night
that became as a dream
of the mornings daylight.
A cold snowy scene
of a great point on time
brings Christmas alive
feeling oh so divine.
With a flavor recalled
of a passionate while,
you might then display
the grandest of a smile.
A smile from a moment
when you were so young
in a magical way
of a passed setting sun.

A Long Time Ago

One time long ago
I wished for a day,
a magical moment
with snow on display.
A time I remember
was only in my dreams
from a long time ago
of certain winter scenes.
Decembers shadows
were just but a time,
as winter was void
of words of a rhyme.
A big round snowman
was filled full of air,
Christmas was lacking
that white snowy flair.
One day I remember
from a long time ago
I dreamed of what I see,
white Christmas snow.

Man Of White

One day I saw
a man of white
made of snow
and pure delight.
He stood so tall,
near an old tree
with decorations
real clear to see.
This man of white
with cloak and hat
was a snowman
oh so fat.
He had a grin
upon his face,
this man of white
with wider waist.
One Christmas day
some kids had made
this man of white
that then displayed.
He came to life
in dreams one night,
what children made,
this man of white.

Looking Afar

Days at end
as time moves on
leaving the trails
to soon be gone.
Looking afar
to then and there
our memories
are just like air.
A puff of wind
as a breeze flies by
while looking afar
to a seasons sky.
It brings into view
a Christmas past,
that lives in you
as shadows cast.
Looking afar
to a distant day
on a magical road,
a Christmassy way.
Life is discerning
as time is found,
looking afar
as wheels go round.
A time you recall
from a distant trail,
a life so simple
in every detail.
There is this road,
a shining star,
a Christmas scene
while looking afar.

Nights of Christmas
bring forth their shine
gleaming so brightly
a wondrous design.
Scenes come alive
in a magical flair
gleaming of Christmas
in nighttime’s fresh air.
A view in the night
might fill your dreams
as lights that glitter
from magical scenes.
Life is a doorway
to a wonderful place,
gleaming so brightly
a time to embrace.
The moments dance
as a sugarplum fairy
and sweet memories
of Christmas so merry.
Scenes come alive
in the twinkling lights,
gleaming so brightly
within Christmas nights.
Life is so glorious
as Christmas bells
along with the aroma
of Christmassy smells.
The scents come alive
in a gleaming array,
Christmas lights glow
in a wonderful way.

Surely Come Alive

Driving by moments
that display a view
shows many a scene
to come alive as anew.
Seeming as Christmas
the seconds tick on
leaving the essence
of a new day to dawn.
Christmas beginnings
with winter white snow
brings alive moments
that just seem to grow.
Alive as a picture
that God painted true
is a Christmassy scene
He gave me and you.
We might not see them,
we pass them each day,
the times so alive
in a wonderful way.
Open your eyes now
and see what is there,
alive in the makings
as a true breath of air.
Minutes tick onwards
as lifestyles are grown
displaying wonders
as a Christmas cologne.
The aromas so sweet
on a Christmastime drive
are as God’s blessings
that surely come alive.

Snoopy’s Christmas

Christmastime stories,
cartoons and more
help us remember
what Christmas is for.
Charlie brown scenes
with little Snoopy too
recreate many
their seasonal view.
Though many never
saw what was there
maybe a Christmas tree
found really bare.
The fact is the story
can become as a fog
when you’re forgetting
little Snoopy the dog.
Our pets can enjoy
the same that we see
for Snoopy’s Christmas
is the best that can be.
His friend Woodstock
can enjoy it too
as a season of joy
for four legs and two.

for Dec 16,  2017

As a flower blooms
it also disperses life
to a bumble bee.

Life is a challenge
that can either help us grow
or to just give up.

Time is just seconds
that add up to a lifetime
that some overlook.

God shows us mercy,
but many just don’t want it,
because they don’t care.

Need is confusion
when want is within the mind
leading the venture.

When you are lying,
the truth is always around
to be uncovered.

A child’s inner sight
is stronger than that of ours,
for they still believe.

Hope for the future
lies in the beginnings hands
that are good or bad.

The leaves of autumn
find their way into winter
to make room for snow.

Looking too harshly
at the things life provides
can create sadness.

Morning brings changes
in the way that many feel,
for sleep has its way.

Many see pieces
of themselves in their children,
but don’t understand.

The past is as shadows
that disperses many sights
that we might not like.

When looking upwards
you might see so many stars
that have since passed on.

The sight of a bird
as it flies high in the sky
is beauty with wings.

Kneeling by your bed
saying prayers before sleep
can give you much peace.

Shelter from a storm
might be something or someone
that God has sent you.

Discovering talents
can be a scary moment
that opens a door.

A forest of eyes
see the life you are living,
but you do not know.

Pointless is praying
if you haven’t any faith,
for God knows the truth.

When hearing a bird
as it sings throughout the day,
your mind might flutter.

The scent of raindrops
brings to life beauty of time
found from a rain cloud.
