Hello my friends

Judy and I just got back from the grocery
store in town.  It’s supposed to snow again
tonight and tomorrow,  so we figured that
we better go and get the grocery shopping
done today 🙂  We got about 18 inches of
snow last Wednesday and Thursday LOL.
I gave our new snow blower a work out and
it worked like a champ.  I am happy with it.
We have a wall of snow outside.  It’s going
to grow LOL.  It’s been very cold and the
boys haven’t wanted to stay out and play
in the snow much,  but I’m sure there will
be a few play days.  Next topic 🙂   Well it
looks like Judy and I are without any place
to be for a while,  being she has rescheduled
all of her doctors appointments.  So,  all she
will have is craft night and if the weather’s
too bad,  she doesn’t have to go to that,  but
time will tell.  Our grandson (Christian) was
wanting to come and spend the weekend
with us,  but the weather got too bad and
plus his mom when coming home from work
Thursday slid off of the road and had to
have Judy’s sister and her hubby to come
and get her to take her home and Dennis
then got the car unstuck and drove it to
their house.  So,  Christian might end up
coming to spend next weekend with us :),
if of course the weather’s permitting.  We
shall see.  The high for today was 4 F degrees.
Right now it is 3 F hehehe.   It’s looking
like the temperature will be bouncing up
and down all week.  Who’s playing with
the thermostat????   LOL it don’t matter.
Me and the boys might go out and play in
the snow tomorrow if all goes well.  It’s
not supposed to be as cold as it was today.
A high of 16 F LOL.  Anyways,  what else
has gone on here at the Pearce’s Place???
Hmm,  not much has gone on.  This passed
week has been pretty uneventful aside from
the snow Wednesday and Thursday LOL.
Oh yea,  I ordered us 130 gallons of heating
oil Wednesday and due to the blizzard and
all Thursday,  they were unable to deliver
it until Friday.  I had to make sure that they
could get to our oil tank though,  so I had
to do a bit of snow blowing and shoveling 🙂
I’m going to have to order us another 100
gallons next month to make sure we have
enough to last us through the winter,  but
for now,  we’re OK.  I only had enough
money to order is 130 gallons this month.
That’s one of the drawbacks to living up
here.  There’s drawbacks to living anywhere.
So,  I’m happy.  I just wish that heating
oil didn’t cost so much.  LOL that’s life!
It could always be worse.  I have many
friends that are in much worse shape than
us.  They have no food and no home.  I
wish Judy and I were in better shape and
we would help them,  but we are on a
fixed income ourselves and have many
bills to pay.  All we can do is pray for
those others.  Although prayer does work
miracles thanks be it to God.  Prayer has
most surely helped Judy and I to make
it.  I guess that’s about all I have for you
now,  so I need to look back through all
of my rambling 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 believe that I
may of found a decent title just a few
lines back and now after checking I see
that it has not been used as of yet,  so
used it shall be :).  Here goes.


Life has it’s stories
that many will tell
drawbacks to lifestyles
that some view as Hell.
Yet many drawbacks
are teachers of life
as we go onwards
with lessons of strife.
So many problems
and so many days
are filled with drawbacks
in moments displays.
Yet it’s with drawbacks
we need to perceive
the best from a moment
that we can conceive.
Not letting drawbacks
to tarnish your heart,
you can find moments
as a great work of art.

There ya go hehehe.  I hope you liked the
poem and my rambling kept ya amused 🙂
Judy is now giving Benny a bath being he
had a poopy butt.  I normally take care of
that but I asked her if she wouldn’t mind
so I could get done with this article.  Thank
you Judy 🙂  Now I believe I have told you
all that has gone on around here and that
is going on around here,  so I reckon it is
time for me to tell you what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with
1 extra and 2 of the poems are Christmas
poems.  Also I wrote 22 more haiku for all
of the haiku lovers out there.  Hopefully
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
truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,
where can that goofy off switch be hiding
this week?  Hmm,  searching high and
low.  Aha,  I see ya you little varmint 🙂
I almost didn’t see ya though,  but you
moved just at the moment I looked that
way a second time hehehe.  I guess when
hanging from the curtains it’s hard to be
still huh LOL.  You’re getting better 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

A New Day Dawns

Within a moment
a year has passed
leaving but only
a shadows cast.
A new day dawns
to awaken dreams
as time flies by
to new days scenes.
The past is gone
leaving only a sign
found in memories
a certain design.
A new day dawns
to display another
chance to be kind
to sister and brother.
As with the minutes
the seconds pass by
a new day dawns
to bid then goodbye.

A Year Of Life

Bumps in the road
to a brand new day
teach us survival
in a wondrous way.
A year of life
is a but only a time
found as a moment
within our mind.
Scenes come and go
as turning of a page
displaying journeys
of our age to age.
A brand new time
that a year displays
might be filled with
another fine phase.
Moments of grandeur
and maybe some strife
will be the essence
of a year of life.

Seen As Colors

Segments of colors
might be inlaid
within a journey of
timeless cascade.
Life might encompass
a story in time
that’s seen as colors
of a wondrous design.
Time is but a porthole
that opens and closes
some seen as colors
of beautiful roses.
Yet a mere vase
of a painters display
might then be found
as a magical day.
Looking for a place
in a rainbow of time
might then display
life found in the mind.
Found as an abstract
unlike any others,
time might display
what’s seen as colors.

The Sun Still Shines

A day soon passing
brings forth a sight
sunshine shining
its wonderful light.
Such as a flavor
of moments request
the sun still shines
of an evening’s breath.
Scented with colors
of a yellowish hue
turning to orange
in a lost sky of blue.
We may not perceive it
as bright as it shares
as our eyes can’t see it
for sight it impairs.
Yet it’s a wonderful
sight which to see
as it brings colors
of a time given free.
Life is a journal
of wondrous designs
seen as the days pass
and the sun still shines.

Heavenly Tracks

Snow driven pathways
of a heavenly sight
bring forth the blessings
of Heaven’s delight.
Train tracks to peaceful
with heartbeats in tune
find then the pathway
a moment’s commune.
Speaking with nature
on a snowy white trail,
train tracks to Heaven,
a moment set sail.
All of God’s blessings
come alive in the view
as a book of His glory
that lives oh so true.
The scenes that we see
with the turn of a page
display the portions
of a Heavenly stage.
Sometimes the scenery
will become just a glance,
as a time we remember,
a great song and dance.
Yet as the days pass
and time runs its course
the moments perceived
may leave some remorse.
But time is just a portal
that science interacts,
while many are seeking
those Heavenly tracks.

Gray Skies

Often our lifestyles
will lose sight of good
as our emotions
are misunderstood.
Gray skies of evening
might surely display
signs of our ventures
an eventful array.
The light that is there
can become such a view
a scene within a scene
with a wonderful hue.
Gray skies may form
in our lives day to day,
but peace can be found
if we’ll kneel and pray.
Allowing our greediness
to fade from our heart,
the gray skies of life
can become works of art.
Becoming as painters
of a new days detail
our skies can clear up
with new days set sail.
So as some gray skies
find ways to be seen
look for the rivers
of heartbeats agleam.
Put prayer in your life
and hope in your eyes
and look for the beauty
in all the gray skies.

Summertime Dreams

A wintertime scene
brings life to a phase,
summertime dreams
of so distant days.
The magic began
as a twinkling hue,
summertime dreams
in a faint sky of blue.
With but a moment
the time comes alive,
summertime dreams
with clouds in the sky.
An ocean of waves
rolls in evermore,
summertime dreams
on one distant shore.
A wintertime scene
is still found in place,
summertime dreams
with a smile on my face.
The seasons recorded
inside of my mind,
summertime dreams
such a wonderful time.
Yet as the snow falls
on the ground below,
summertime dreams
are found in the snow.
As mere reflections
of times from afar,
summertime dreams
are a bright shining star.

Reflected Times

Blessings united
winter to spring
become invited
as song birds sing.
Winter’s lifestyle
is often pure white
found in the snow
each day and night.
Yet it soon melts
to become a view
as times recalled as
waters of blue.
Reflected times
are seasons displays
found to encompass
the brand new days.
Blessings from God
are wondrous designs
found within seasons
of reflected times.

Moments Revealed

With a taste of winter
as snow white delight
time is but a segment
that comes within sight.
Moments revealed
as a page full of ages
I find I am dreaming
of seasonal pages.
Books of a dreamer
with a wanted array
become as a dreamworld
that moments display.
Seen as a sentence
that’s worded with love
snow that had fallen
from that big sky above.
The prayers of a Texan
to see winter white
on a Christmas morning
a wonderful sight.
Blessings of a dreamer
are no longer concealed
as time brought forth
those moments revealed.

Road Of Ice

We often drive
with minds a drift
down the roads
of times so swift.
Paying no attention
to so many times
our roads ice up
to troubled minds.
The path of life
is a journey away
as a road of ice
to another day.
We might envision
a different style
without troubles
that times compile.
The winter themes
our eyes perceive
might be a web
for time to weave.
Use the pathways
that life gives you
as a road of ice
to better view.

Those Winter Days

Beyond the season
of spring and summer,
fall comes along
with winter’s asunder.
Pieces of autumn
are still recognized
in those winter days
that time’s apprised.
Then is an echo
of a distant scene,
is small barn of red
of a snowy cuisine.
As Christmas days
come into view
those winter days
are there so true.
They give a hint
of remembered times
as scenes so sweet
of Christmas minds.
Remembering life
of younger years
those winter days
and joyful tears.
Places and times
we saw transcend
were times we thought
would never end.
Yet now an old barn
of a reddish haze
brings it all back
those winter days.

Beyond our eyesight
is a world of the unknown
that may know of us.

Holding onto life
needs the correct perspective,
to discern the truth.

Storms that are sounding
might hold a few smiles within
as the storms die down.

Challenging insight
of what another believes
might end in anger.

Tomorrows stories
will often change with the day
as new things are learned.

Lessons from the past
might come back as haunting ghosts
that we never learned.

Deep below the waves
lies an oceans existence
that’s beyond belief.

Seeking for a halo
while just living in a lie
will cause you to fail.

As a seasons rose
we will bloom to perfection
of who we’re to be.

Allowing anger
to live and breathe within
could soon start a war.

Our journeys of life
are often joined with others
that we do not know.

In the midst of storms
there might be some conclusions
that we never knew.

Playing a fools game
will make you also the fool
if you do not cease.

Motions of a cloud
become noticed in a sight
that’s ever changing.

Searching for yourself,
you might find a mystery
that unlocks your mind.

In the afterlife
lives another dimension
that holds all the truth.

Shadows of ourselves
might be all that many see
as who that we are.

Glimmers of hopeful
can be found within ourselves
if we’ll look inside.

Mornings of sunshine
bring storys in existence
that time only tells.

Summer’s daffodils
will shine of white and yellow
in fields of slumber.

Silence of the night
can hold sounds we cannot hear
until we’re silent.

Holding onto time
can hinder our futures life,
so don’t hold too tight.
