Hello my friends

I’m writing this a day late being our grandson
Christian sent me a message Saturday asking
if he could come and spend the weekend with
us.  Saturday night was Judy’s craft night over
at her sister’s house and so Christian went with
his mom and then rode home with Judy.  It’s
always great to have him come and stay with
us.  We stayed up late watching funny videos
on Youtube LOL.  Sunday we spent the day
watching more funny Youtube videos hehehe.
It will be a sad day when he no longer wants
to come and spend time with us.  Kids grow
up and get busy with their own lives.  I’m sad
about my getting too busy for my own grand
parents.  If I could change that,  I would,  but
the past is the past.  So,  I totally am thrilled
when I hear “Hey Grandpa can I come and stay
for the weekend” 🙂  It brings me joy when I
hear him say “Hey Grandpa,  look a this” 🙂
Helena (his mom) came and got him just a
little bit ago and we all sat in the living room
and chatted.  They’re gone now and it’s just
Judy, I and the boys Benny and Rocky now.
So next topic.  Well last week was a fairly
peaceful one.  For Valentines Day,  Judy and I
went to Subway and got some sub sandwiches
to bring home and eat while we watched TV.
Judy said that was what she wanted to do for
Valentines Day and so that’s what we did 🙂
I didn’t take many pictures last week being
when we did get out,  the sun was going down.
I have been busy writing poetry though and
Judy has done a few more paintings.  Life
at the Pearce’s Place can be rather boring to
onlookers,  but we enjoy life in our own way.
I’ll be happy when the Olympics is over with.
It cuts into some of our favorite TV programs.
Neither of us is a sports fan.  LOL the only
thing that is near sports related that we like
to watch is American Ninja Warrior hehehe.
We used to watch a game called Wipeout,
but it reached its last season in Sept of 2014.
Nope,  as far as real sports,  neither of us
is interested.  We have many TV programs
that we love to watch,  but the Olympics has
put them off air for how ever long that it
is that the Olympics is on.  I’m hoping it’s
almost done.  Judy’s checking right now to
see if there is anything on to watch tonight.
Please let there be something on hehehehe.
While she’s checking I guess I’ll continue
on with my rambling LOL.  It looks as
though this weeks temperatures will melt
a lot of this ice and snow,  but it’s looking
like we might get some more snow by the
end of the week as the temperature begins
its drop once again.  My weather program
says we might get a little snow tonight,  but
as I said,  it will melt with the temperatures
in the upper 30’s tomorrow and the upper
40’s Wednesday.  After that though it looks
like the temperature is dropping to the 20’s.
So beginning Thursday,  we will be back
to freeze ville LOL.  The weather has been
weird the last few weeks.  It’s still white
outside and you can go snow blind on a
sunny day.  We’re still enjoying life as best
that we can.  There will always be a few
bumps in life,  but they make the rest of
life more enjoyable.  Thank You God for
all that You have done for us and for that
You will do and thank You for giving us
protection.  So I reckon it’s time for me to
begin my journey back through all that
I’ve written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I 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.
LOL I think I found a fairly decent title
just a few lines back.  It surprises me being
the title is pretty simplistic hehehe and
after looking I saw that I had not used it
as of yet 🙂  so used it shall be.  Here goes…


Nights of life
that days reveal
are often sights
with less appeal.
Tonight just might
become a phase
a time of life
for dreams to gaze.
They can also
become a void
nightmares from
a life deployed.
Fill your days
with good attitude
of which tonight
can use as food.
A taste of time
that’s without plight
to fill your dreams
you have tonight.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem and
maybe even understood it.  Also I hope you
enjoyed my rambling,  but if not,  as I’ve said
many times before,  SORRY hehehe.  Maybe
next time.  Well Judy didn’t find much for us
to watch tonight.  Kindred Spirits and then I
guess it’s game shows after that 🙂  I’m about
ready for dinner.  I turned on the oven for
Judy about 30 minutes ago to let it heat up.
LOL our stove is right against the outside
wall and it has to fight the cold to get warm.
🙂 If it was facing the interior of the house it
wouldn’t be so bad,  but it’s not.  Anyways,  she
just went in to start cooking.  We’re having
fish and chips/fries.  So,  I wonder if I have
anything thing important that I’ve forgotten.
Nope,  I think I have told ya all that’s going
on around here.  I guess 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 5 extra.
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.  So Ok,  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 blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now,  where can that ornery pff switch be
hiding this time.  it’s had an extra day to
find a hiding spot.  Hmm,  I think I see
something hanging on to Rocky’s hair for
dear life LOL.  Looking a little winded
there dude hehehe.  Did Rocky give the
ride of your life?  Hahaha you won’t do
that again huh hehehe.  I bet you’re tired.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Waiting On Trains

Pebbles are counted
as minutes of time
while waiting patiently
seeking for a sign.
A train of a dreamer
that carries inside
hopes for tomorrow
within today’s ride.
Waiting on trains
to come and display
moments of grandeur
a dreamers array.
Yet as we’re waiting
we might conceive
a new day to dawn
that’s better to weave.
Time might unleash
a portion of pains
while you are standing
waiting on trains.

Beholders Eyes

Skies awakening
bring forth a view
scenes come alive
with wonderful hue.
Clouds might form
and become alive
as we then one day
go for a drive.
Life is so magical
as gray clouds above
patterns forming
filled full of love.
The beholders eyes
might look and see
more in a moment
than you and me.
For as the glimmers
are found in the skies
beauty is forming in
the beholders eyes.

Years Are Life

Weathered emotions
are counted like rain
drops of an ocean
upon a windowpane.
Life is as an actor
with scripts in time
thoughts of emotion
that so many find.
Formed as minutes
and counted as hours
the years are life
a moment empowers.
Dusk is perception
and morning awaits
creating a journey
that time participates.
An old house standing
might have a view
with stories to tell
from old days to new.
The years are life
as time marches on
painting the pictures
to never be gone.
They are remembered
as seasons in frame,
yet when weathered
they look not the same.
So many memories
are wood to a knife
whittled into existence
showing years are life.

The Sky Awaits

Mindful emotions
become as a glance
filled full of scenes
that give us romance.
Living as a time
within our own views
moments perception
gives right to choose.
Choice of a glimmer
a sight which to see
as the sky awaits
with time given free.
Seeming to explode
as a canvas of white
God displays clouds
up above taking flight.
Seeming as a painting
that time delegates
Heaven becomes seen
as the sky awaits.

A Snowmobile’s Trail

Cruising through winter
in white fallen snow
a snowmobile’s trail
is seen to and fro.
Journeys to one way
and journeys thereunto
a snowmobile’s trail
gives a familiar view.
Watching them roaming
and traveling about
the snowmobile’s travels
shows a seasonal route.
Time is the keeper
of the snow driven ways
as a snowmobile’s trail
is one day out of phase.
Yet as the snow falls
it gives more to do
as snowmobilers drive
on white snow brand new.
They might head across
a field yet explored
or drive on with others
to seek views reward.
Times they remember
as trails become time
a snowmobile’s path
is for winters design.
Roaming through snow
maybe going too fast
they might miss the views
of a snowmobile’s path.

Reflective Souls

Types of beauty
times bestow
signs of life
a daily show.
We so often
will look away
and not see
the day to day.
Reflective souls
of passing scenes
become a gaze
within our dreams.
Life’s a doorway
times to view
that God made
for me and you.
We are a part
of natures roles
so let’s unite
reflective souls.

We’re Losing Sight

We often seek
our different view
instead of seeing
what’s really true.
We often avoid
a time and date
when we’re found
we’re filled with hate.
We’re losing sight
of who we are
as our emotions
stoop too far.
The days parade
might truly consist
of times of our lives
that we have missed.
We might one day
look back with fright
being remorseful
for we’re losing sight.

Time Forgotten

A brush with time
creates a theme
a time within
a certain scene.
A forgotten life
of living proof
old wood studs
and leaky roof.
We might perceive
the certain sight
a moments time
with dimmer light.
But the story’s
deeper than that
for it displays
a welcome mat.
A living breathing
sight to see
time forgotten
our history.

Our Life Together

With hearts united
we became as one
time then became
as seconds to none.
We are as memoirs
a journey in time
our life together
as Heaven sent wine.
We’ve created times
alive to be seen
our life together
a magical dream.
Found as a heartbeat
connected with peace
our life together
gives joyful release.
We’re now conjoined
as two hearts in love
our life together
from Heaven above.
You are my Valentine
and I am yours too
our life together
from old to anew.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

Distant Sun

Evenings shadows
sky of phase
the distant sun
right then displays.
Time is colored
orange to gold
as the sun shines
to surely unfold.
Scenes delivered
in evening sky
the distant sun
bids us goodbye.
Leaving essence
in the sky of eve
as it continues
what we perceive.
The distant sun
falls from sight
giving way for
the dark of night.

Within The Mind

We’re as boats
that drift about
seeking pathways
in and out.
Floating drifting
time portrays
what we do in
future days.
As we’re floating
we might see
waves of life
to set us free.
But we might just
lose our path
if we’re rowing
way to fast.
Take each day
with cautions stride
and don’t let
your greed inside.
Within the mind
there is a place
a time of life
that’s out of pace.
Seasons sunshine
comes to be
life we wish for
but can’t see.
Don’t get antsy
row with peace
within your mind
let hurry cease.
Say a prayer
and take your oars
and then row
to peaceful shores.
Allow your stride
of life’s design
to find some peace
within the mind.

Through The Emptiness

Our longing desires
of wanted arrays
can bring many problems
in oh so many ways.
Ones empty heartedness
sought for with greed
can become emptiness
what they do not need.
Through the emptiness
time will be found
holes in their future
as they look around.
Time has a way of
bringing forth the truth
and making ones feel like
the pulling of a tooth.
Yanking on perspectives
as wantings fall prey
to that of the future
on some distant day.
You might find regret
through all you’ve done
and wish for a change in
your passed setting sun.
Don’t let your passed
to delegate who you are,
seek for much better
you learned from afar.
Those times remembered
can be teachers of life
as our wantings change
the seasons of strife.
Through the emptiness
our lessons can grow
displaying hopefully
a new way to go.
Use what you’ve learned
to be a better display
for through the emptiness
can be a better day.

Enhancing Styles

As ones embrace
for minutes passed
the scenes right then
might move too fast.
Looking beyond
what’s here right now,
might lose its depth
that times endow.
Enhancing styles
of wondrous thoughts
can often appear
as a moment lost,
for changing the view
of truths display
can also lose tract
of the good today.
So look at the views
as flowers will bloom
times we encounter
from April to June.
Seek for the blessings
look for the smiles
and you might see
some enhancing styles.

Stay Focused

Keep your eyes opened
and look for the scenes
a portion of a moment
with ball on the greens.
Don’t let distractions
to mess up your view.
Try and stay focused on
what that is true.
Sometimes a person
will come in your way
distracting your steps
from day unto day.
So stay focused now
don’t lose your stride.
Keep your eyes opened
on your life changing ride.
Don’t let a liars din
to deceive what is true.
Try and stay focused on
what’s good for you.

Guiding Spirits

Guiding spirits
voices true
bring us visions
old and new.
As we wander
with our ways
guiding spirits
fill our days.
Some are silent
actions found
when we one day
look around.
Though we may
see not a thing
guiding spirits
shout and sing.
Giving passage
things to learn
and some bridges
found to burn.
Look within you
see the flame
guiding spirits
times attain.

for Feb 17,  2018

Now is just breathing
awaiting a chance in life
for it to perform.

As seasons expire
they leave a few memories
as their reminders.

Losing direction
doesn’t mean that you’re hopeless
if you learn from it.

Time is just a breeze
that blows in with a journey
for seconds to count.

Patterns of a rose
are as sequences of spring
to live through summer.

So many through time
attempt to hurry their lives
and not enjoy it.

Allowing problems
to be all that you can see
you’ll miss the answers.

Windows of our lives
often need a little rain
to wash off the filth.

If we look around
we might see a few moments
that we missed before.

The grass of summer
lives as a mere memory
through fall and winter.

Within our footsteps
are the footprints left behind
that others may see.

Traveling memoirs
are as echoes of the mind
that you revisit.

Today’s beginnings
will have some endings as well
for it’s par the course.

Pleasantness is found
when looking beyond sadness
and seeing blessings.

Snowflakes of winter
are as unique emotions
falling from the sky.

Signatures of time
are often rustic details
that we call antiques.

When starving your mind
and not allowing lessons,
it will never grow.

Many a footstool
is just a person of life
that has given up.

Within the darkness
there might be a little light
to show you the way.

Tomorrows blessings
are awaiting their time frame,
so deal with today.

In fear of spiders
ones will often run away
no matter the size.

Shadows of ourselves
are often all that ones see
and not who we are.
