Life Beyond


Hello my friends

Well it’s looking like we might one day
see spring LOL,  Though it did snow a
little Friday and Saturday hehehe.  But
today’s high is 35 F degrees.  Tomorrow
looks to be about the same,  but the rest
of the week is supposed to be in the 40’s.
So,  the snow should be melted away in
a week or so at that rate LOL.  Unless
it starts snowing again,  which has been
known to happen in the past 🙂  Oh well.
I’m sure spring will get here when it gets
here.  Though it might be summertime
by the time it does get here Hahahaha.
Yep,  gotta love snow or at least like it
a bit to live up here LOL.  Though,  even
I have grown tired of it after about the
4th month of it or so hehehe.  I’m sure
that after a month or so of summer,
I’ll be ready for that lovely white stuff
once again.  So,  time for next topic 🙂
Judy and I have been fairly idle around
here the last few days aside from her
playing taxicab giving our grandsons
girlfriend a ride to work and picking
her up when she’s done and ready to
go home.  Their car died and they are
trying to buy a new one or should I say
new to them 🙂  They should have one
soon.  In the mean time,  we’ll do as
we have.  There’s not much going on
here at the Pearce’s Place.  Judy has
done some more awesome paintings
and I’ve been busy writing,  creating
more poetry pictures.   Tuesday when
we went grocery shopping we decided
to buy us some Pizza Hut pizzas so we
didn’t have to cook dinner.  Actually it
made it so we didn’t have cook dinner
for 3 days LOL.  We both got a medium
pizza.  2 pieces each for dinner.  LOL,
yes I know,  lazy,  but we love pizza 🙂
We recorded Trading Spaces yesterday
so that we can watch it today.  Oh and
Deadliest Catch is coming on tomorrow.
We might have to record it being we’ve
got other programs we love to watch
as well,  but that’s what the DVR is for.
We’re going to give our boys a haircut
Wednesday or that’s what’s planned 🙂
Rocky’s eyes are hidden somewhere
under all that hair LOL.  I don’t see
how he can see,  but then sheep dogs
do it all the time hehehe.  Have you
ever watched the cartoon of the wolf
or coyote and the sheep dog Hahaha?
Anyways,  Judy and I love to watch
the Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry.
Yep,  we’re old,  but young at heart 🙂
We ain’t dead in other words hehehe.
I just looked outside and I’m regretting
doing so LOL.  Now I am snow blind.
OK,  my eyesight is slowly coming back.
Sheesh,  it’s bright!  At night when the
moon is shining bright it reflects off of
the snow and makes it almost look like
daytime LOL.  That of course is on
those small occasions that there are no
clouds in the sky which are very few 🙂
I’m sure that after we trim the boys
hair,  they’ll be doing a lot of squinting
when they go outside to go potty LOL.
Yep,  there’s not much going on around
the Pearce’s Place.  I might sometime
in the next few days begin working on
publishing my newest book volume 7.
LOL I’ve already begun writing for
volume 8 🙂  Maybe 1 day or another,
my books will begin selling,  but in the
mean time I’ll continue writing being
it’s what I enjoy doing.  If it were not
for photography and poetry,  I would
go freaking nuts LOL.  They’re a big
part of what keeps my head straight.
Yes,  Judy and the boys help as well,
but I always need something to do with
my over active thinking patterns that
often kick into high gear and start to
burn up the track LOL.  I counted my
poetry pictures yesterday and I have
written over 1100 of them in the last
couple of years.  I never dreamed of
writing more than maybe a 100 or so.
Although it looks as though I may not
be at end for a long while.  Many more
to write 🙂  God has blessed me with
this gift of writing and so I’ll continue
as long as I’m able.  It seems that each
time I write,  I am relieved of a little
stress.  I am thankful for God putting
Judy in my life,  for she has helped me
to see a whole new life beyond anything
of which I had known.  God has also
put my daughter and Judy’s daughters
in my life and they have shown me love
and compassion.  Plus all our grand kids
have woven in a joy that makes growing
old a blessing.  Thank You God for all
that You do for Judy and I,  as well as
our family and friends.  Now I reckon
it’s time for me to be looking back on
all that I’ve written 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 lil place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe I may
have 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 Beyond

Now’s a doorway
with lock and key
to open up one day
or to let it be.
For our life beyond
on yet another day
might be the answers
for something we pray.
Seen through windows
some life’s might seem
that of a much better
timeless dream,
but yet it’s perception
and how we perceive
anothers life beyond
a web they weave.
So let all the minutes
within your own way
become life beyond
the best you can pray.

There ya go.  LOL it might not make a
lick of sense to you,  but it does to me 🙂
So, if you don’t understand it,  I’m sorry.
Anyways,  I hope you enjoyed all of my
rambling and maybe even the poem even
if you didn’t understand it Hahahahaha.
Judy is now busy redoing one of her books
getting ready to republish.  The people
that were publishing it before went out of
business.  So Judy has a couple of books
to redo and republish.  I know she’s happy
to be able to put these books back on the
market.  That should keep her busy for
a long while 🙂  I’m so very proud of her.
Writing is something that brought her
and I together back in April 1st of 2001
and we have found tons of other things
that we have in common.  Yea,  we do
have our bad days,  but we all have our
share of bad days.  Actually it’s the bad
days that make the better days to shine.
Before I get into rambling mode again
I guess I need to tell you what I tell you
every week and that is I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems with 4 extras and 2 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,
to find that confounded off switch that
is the worst at hide and seek hehehehe,
but not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and a
truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  OK so,
where is that ornery off switch hiding
this time?   Hmmmm.  searching high
and low.  Aha,  I see ya hiding behind
the doggie hair brush.  You might want
to look for something that is not lying
down flat to hide behind next hehehehe.
The wire bristles hardly hid you from
view.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzz.

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

Then At Peace

An apple of time
with core of seeds
gives many blessings
filling our needs.
Seen in a moment
painted with love
is then at peace
a time from above.
Scented with flavors
a momentous find,
points to remember
of a wonderful time.
As birds fly away
and moments cease
an apple is tasted
when then at peace.

Journeys Through

A beaten path
of timeless toil
begins its groove
in moments soil.
Journeys through
summer to fall
we might uncover
a moment so tall.
Breath of life
and scenic ways,
journeys through
give much to gaze.
Though so many
may close their eyes
to the beauty
of autumns skies.
Seamless scenes
become our views
as ongoing times
that minutes infuse.
Providing a sight
of moments peace
as we discover
each turning leaf.
Journeys through
on a gravel mile
on a country road
with a little smile.
Time can be victor
with a wondrous hue
blessings united
journeys through.

Dream Of Spring

As winter ends
and leaves its place
a certain scene
then shows its face.
Flowers blooming
weeds then too
become colors
springtime hue.
A dream of spring
becomes a glance
a time and place
of life’s romance.
As birds unite
to sing their songs
a dream of spring
becomes so strong.
It then beacons
sights and sounds
dreamers essence
time abounds.
A dream of spring
then becomes true
as the flowers
come in view.
Seeming as magic
that comes alive
a dream of spring
before my eyes.
Yet this moment
is just a scene
found in winter
a dream of spring.

Water Pours

Life’s a faucet
pouring so true
the likes of me
and likes of you.
We might so often
just misconceive
how we’re pouring
you and me.
Water pours
as wine of gold
like you and I
from young to old.
Seasons faucets
become alive
as water pours
into our eyes.
Life’s a doorway
a faucet in time
as water pours out
our design.

Distant Skies

Winter’s white
with skies of blue
becomes scenes
a Christmas view.
A blue horizon
falls in place
bringing patterns
clouds of lace.
Seeming sewed in
clouds become
distant skies
of evenings sun.
Joyful blessings
come and go
as the patterns
keep their flow.
Forming scenes
from day to night
distant skies
set time in flight.
Fluffy clouds
become a dream
as we look on
all we’ve seen.
Life’s a blessing
sometimes hidden
in the moments
God has given.
Christmas hues
of distant skies
can find home
within our eyes.

Autumn’s Bliss

Memories passion
scented designs
displays autumn
as magical times.
Blissful emotions
painted in place
leaves as a pattern
with a colorful face.
Time then awakens
as leaves fall down
into autumn’s bliss
as seen all around.
Life then is scenic
as minutes tick on
within all the colors
there then and gone.
Leaving just a trace
of a season’s kiss,
this is what’s known
as autumn’s bliss.

This Little Doggie

This dog of ours
he loves the snow
to run and play
both high and low.
He often finds
the highest place
in snow of white
to then embrace.
This little doggie
just loves the scene
as snow of white
his favorite dream.
For when it melts
and gone from view
this little doggie
will seek anew.
Then when winter
returns its sight
and brings the view
of snow of white
this little doggie
will give a big smile
and run in the snow
and jump in a pile.
Smiling so brightly
as times before
this little doggie
will play some more.

Sometimes a moment
has hidden within
many illusions
and a time to begin.
Maybe a mountain
or a distant foot hill
displays illusions
of a time to fulfill.
Looking in deeply
might then display
a moment, a minute,
a magical way,
Seen as a rhythm
that times interweave
lacing them together
for time to deceive.
The clouds may form
to hide from you
the illusions of life
in a fantastic view.
We might not perceive
what minutes portray
for what that’s illusion
might be a bit gray.
Hidden from our eyes
and a feeling to feel
we might find a sight
that’s not really real.
Look for the trueness
in all that is there,
see through illusions
the answers to prayer.

Shadows Of Fall

A glimpse into time
with a heartbeat’s eyes
becomes a doorway
a time in disguise.
Shadows of the mind
created by a thought
display the moments
that cannot be bought.
The shadows of fall
of a subsequent view
found behind summer
becomes as anew.
Even through winter
the memories exist,
as shadows of fall
in a leaf turning mist.
Scented with flavors
of colorful leaves,
time begins painting
what eyesight perceives.
Some leaves are red
and some then are gold
that now are shadows
of autumns of old.
Winter might display
some snow fluffy white,
as memories of fall
are still within sight.
Maybe just a memory
that lives within you
as shadows of fall
that wonderful view.

The Crossing

Minds may discover
a life that’s seen
timeless minutes
maybe a dream.
Within the crossing
of tracks of time
life might display
a moment’s mind.
The scenes may go
to there and back
at the crossing
of a railroad track.
It might be found
a Christmas sight,
a page from a book
of day and night.
Within the crossing
a pathway’s laid
scented of Christmas
as life’s marmalade.
Hold to the beauty
of the sights you see
found at the crossing
of history.

Momentary Emotions

Embraced by waves
of life and times
we might perceive
some fathomless finds.
Lost in the depth
of a momentous sight
an emotional scene
of wrong and right.
God filled times
of there and then
found momentary
as the days begin.
Blowing up masses
as waves of style
some with a frown,
some with a smile.
Listing in the waves
a ship might sail
as a breath of life
and story to tell.
It all comes alive
as scenes will grow
bringing into view
what times bestow.
Some as a lesson
to teach what’s right
and some as answers
that waves ignite.
These are the ventures
in our daily oceans
found as our turnstiles
momentary emotions.

Faraway Places

A distant time
and distant view
becomes alive
in me and you.
As we search
within our minds
the distant days
a moment finds.
Faraway places
that time reveals
becomes our view
in windowsills.
A distant dream
you found inside
life and times
that never died.
They live on
within your heart
faraway places
times impart.

Distant Dreams

Passing views
that life’s displayed
become the times
life’s lemonade.
Those distant dreams
that times release
can find the times
a moment’s peace.
Just like the days
that passed us by,
the future comes
to say goodbye.
Those distant dreams
become our past
with hearts alive
that shadows cast.
The scene might die
for a moments view,
but then one day
we might pursue.
Those distant dreams
might live again
just like a kite
in evenings wind.
Flying briskly
in winds of time
our distant dreams
we’ll surely find.
Those distant dreams
will then become
a timeless scene
a setting sun.

Coral Skies

We’re the wind
in evenings breath
a time and place
of more or less.
We strive to find
a view to see,
a sight of times
for you and me.
Maybe a scenic
view up above
of coral skies
and full of love.
The wind may blow
a certain array
as leaves of time
from day to day.
Yet we are often
seeking to find
some skies of blue
from time to time.
But as minutes
gather their speed
we might get
what all we need.
Some scenes begin
with more or less
north and south
or east and west.
Yet for a moment
to fill our eyes
we might discover
some coral skies.

Lost in perception
many will see what they want
and it’s just a dream.

Springtime’s persuasion
comes as grasses filled with weeds
that look like flowers.

Without the sunshine
the rain does the plants no good,
for they need them both.

Chances that we make
become lessons or burdens
that time shows the truth.

Seconds are something
that many will sit and count,
before getting up.

Need is confusion
that is often just our wants
piled in a dream.

Reviewing the past
we might see things that we missed
that were hurried through.

Some relationships
are often misconceptions
that weren’t meant to be.

Challenges of life
can often show weaknesses
and how we’re to grow.

Through our life’s window
we can view each perspective
and choose directions.

Modernized doorways
can become mere confusion
losing what we need.

Daffodils grow wild
while they’re disguised as flowers
in a sheep’s clothing.

Plagued by ignorance
many choose stupidity,
as their own excuse.

Time is just a scene
that waits for its daily cue
to display what’s there.

A mere bumblebee
does more than many will do
within a life time.

Looking at shadows
you might find portions of life
that look like yourself.

Beyond a dream world
there might be a moment found
that could be nightmares.

The truth of our life
is often hidden from view,
but seen in mirrors.

Reflecting on spring
it gives a glance through winter
that’s seen as snow melts.

In just a moment
a second can pass us by
showing our regrets.

Hate is just a word
that many use for answers
instead of the truth.

Misleading ventures
can land us in much trouble
so take heed your stride.
