Hello my friends

It’s been another off and on wintery week
over here.  Today’s high is supposed to be
30 F,  but right now it’s 27 F at 3:30 P.M.
Not very spring feeling LOL.  The snow is
slowly melting,  but we still have a lot of it.
According to my weather programs,  it’s
supposed to snow a little bit early Monday
morning and the transition into a wintry
mix in the afternoon LOL.  Yep,  it’s our
April weather hehehe.  It’s a little bipolar
or schizophrenic LOL.  I will though be
glad when springtime finally kicks in gear
and this snow is gone.  I love snow,  but
after about 4 or 5 months of it,  I’m ready
for something other than white hehehe 🙂
I am hoping that our landlord gets the
roof leak fixed on the porch before the
heavy rains begin.  He’s sort of lazy and
puts things off.  Oh well,  I reckon we’ll
survive.  We’ve been through worse LOL.
Judy has been busy rewriting her very
first book,  fixing typo’s and designing
a new cover photo for it getting it ready
for republication.  As I said last week,
the company went out of business that
was publishing it in the beginning.  So,
she is getting it ready to put it back on
the market.  I love Judy’s writing.  She’s
my favorite writer 🙂  So,  she has been
hard at work with her book.  I’ve been
busy writing more poetry pictures,  but I
haven’t yet begun reformatting my poems
for book 7 to get it published hehehe.  I
am sure I will soon.  🙂 Maybe sometime
this week.  Anyways,  I’m sure it will be
done soon.  I guess the reason I hesitate
is because it is so much of a headache to
do all the reformatting turning them into
PDF and all LOL.  It wears out my one
good eye 😉  We’ve gotta do all the work
ourselves being we can’t afford to pay
anybody to do it.  No matter,  we can do
it 🙂  So, what else is going on around the
Pearce’s Place?  Hmm,  good question.
We went up to Presque Isle Tuesday for
Judy’s doctor appointment to get some
cortisone shots in her knees.  While she
was in the doctors office I walked around
and took pictures of the ducks down at
the pond near the office.  LOL a couple
of the ducks began following me all over
the place.  We stopped and got us some
Tacobell tacos and KFC chicken on the
way home.  We don’t have those places
in Houlton.  Nope,  we don’t have much
of a choice.  Of course we live 8 miles
out of Houlton in a tiny little town called
New Limerick,  so we only get take out
once in a while.  So what else have we
done?  Well,  we gave the boys haircuts.
Poor little Rocky could barely see due
to all the hair in front of his eyes LOL.
Benny’s was not as bad,  but it would of
been if we hadn’t of cut it soon.  So,  the
boys have been trimmed.  They still hate
having their paws messed with,  but we
are hoping that after a few haircuts,  that
they’ll get used to it as well as us cutting
their underbelly hair.  Judy managed to
get their toenails clipped.  That’s about
it for the excitement in this place hehehe.
God has been good to us and watched
over us allowing only what we need to
happen in our lives as well as a few of
our wants 🙂  God is good.  Thank You
God for protecting us and watching over
us as well as sending angels to look after
us.  We feel most surely blessed.  Now,
I reckon it’s time for me to take a little
trip 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 may have found a
decent title real near the beginning of
my rambling 🙂 and after checking,  I
see that it has not been used as of yet,
so used it shall be.  Here goes…


Time is but a sector
of a personal view
that many continue
to do as they do.
Yet many actors
in time frames of life
rewrite their stories
to try to end strife.
Rewriting lifetimes
needs futures gaze
found in a moment
of much better days.
Allowing the lessons
of yesterday’s views
to be as the teachers
of life to infuse.
For if you continue
your own daily course
you might just end with
a bit of remorse,
but by rewriting
you might also find
a much worse scenario
for your point and time.
So let the rewriting
be done with a clue
of what that is better
for you then to do.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope it makes sense
to you.  If not,  then oh well hehehehehe.
I also hope that you enjoyed my rambling.
Yes,  I know I tend to drift from one topic
to another LOL.  My old brain tends to
do that.  I never have a clue about what I
will write about until I start writing and
then even I’m surprised LOL.  Now to see
if I have forgotten to tell you anything 🙂
Nope,  can’t think of anything that you
would be interested in hehehe.  Judy and
I are quite boring hehehe.  Anyways,  it
looks as though it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you every week and that is,  I
wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yep,
10 more poems with 1 extra and 2 of the
poems are Christmas related.  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 wonderful weekend or what
that’s left of it and a blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Ok,  now where is that ornery off switch
trying to hide this week?  Hmm,  where
can it be?  Oh,  I think I see movement
from behind the Mountain Dew that Judy
just brought me.  Yep,  I see ya.  LOL was
the can a bit cold?  I guess that’s why you
moved away from it hehehehe.  Brrrrrrr.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Daylight’s Embrace

As morning comes
it brings a glimpse
with day’s sunrise
and things to sense.
An ocean breeze
and walk of time
daylight’s embrace
within the mind.
The waves of life
in certain sights
begin their journey
days and nights.
Just like a page
from a timeless book
daylight’s embrace
is another look.
It brings the senses
alive for a dream
daylight’s embrace
a magical scene.

Faded White

Months are gone
as memories
Christmas essence
snow of seas.
Winter’s turnstiles
come to play
faded white
from day to day.
The winter winds
blow on through
playing games
like peekaboo.
Hiding journeys
behind each scene
faded moments
winter’s bring.
Some as doorways
there and back
found at nighttime
faded black.
Yet some displays
come in view
with a Christmas
winter’s hue.
Life then beckons
with a wave
the signs of life
on coldest days.
The seasons show
the greatest sight
sometimes seen as
faded white.

Time’s Serenity

As we strive
with oars of days
we might encounter
timeless waves.
Some as struggles
seeming to be
the hardest things
for you and me.
Time’s serenity
will fall in place
when we seek
a better taste.
The taste of love
and life of times
that can be found
within our minds.
Sometimes ripples
will seem to grow
and leave but only
fear and woe,
but the moments
can bring peace
time’s serenity
moments release.
Just as seasons
show their path
time’s serenity
will then cast.
Scented as seconds
found then to be
a breath of air
as time’s serenity.

Certain Tracks

Times we’ve lived
to gathered speed
certain tracks
would then mislead.
Leaving sight
of now and then
certain tracks
might just dead end.
Time is changed
as paths are crossed
certain tracks
would leave us lost.
Finding journeys
to thereunto
certain tracks
are not so true.
Showing but only
their little trail
certain tracks
might end in fail.
Look for the truth
to travel on
certain tracks
from dusk to dawn.
Allow your ventures
to teach you well
certain tracks
of each detail.
Our lives are trains
of future and past
so find the truth on
certain tracks.

Various Eyes

Longing for visions
so many will see
only perceptions
that they wish to be.
Various eyes will
only see sights
some as illusions
the moment delights.
Sometimes their eyes
will only see scenes,
realities time frames
that are just dreams.
Don’t let illusions
to become your life,
for they can so often
stab like a knife.
Look for reality
the bad and the good,
but don’t let moments
be misunderstood.
Challenge viewpoints,
how they’re perceived,
for they might surely
be misconceived.
Life is a journey
in passages of time
as scented memories
a lemon and lime.
You might see bridges
beneath blue skies
that are so different
in various eyes.

Melting River

Winter’s grasp
is letting go
with melting ice
and melting snow.
Rivers flowing
once again
as the ice melts
very thin.
Melting river
comes in view
waters flowing
free and true.
Time’s a doorway
spring to come
with the seasons
warming sun.
Winter’s grasp
is soon to find
melting river
change of time.

Shallow Waters

Striving through
to different minds
we often carry
other times.
Some as shadows
days gone by
shallow waters
that went dry.
So many questions
fall in place
as we’re wading
face to face.
Often our journeys
bring us down
shallow waters
that we drown.
Seek for footings
to carry on
through the waters
right and wrong.
The shallow waters
times entail
can become a
ship at sail.
Seen as a moment
that came true
found as a dream
that lives in you.
Scenes discovered
distant days
in shallow waters
different phase.

Plowing Through

Winter’s memoir
written in white
becomes a story
times delight.
A snowmobiler
plowing through
snow of white
within my view.
A scenic wonder
found in snow
winter’s threshold
Christmas glow.
Mere memories
of distant days
as a joyful
time displays.
Seeming scented
plowing through
a time divine.
As reflection’s
snow of white
it is written
a timeless sight.
A sight of winter’s
Christmas cheer
in flakes of white
a time of year.
We might find
in me and you
a blessed moment
plowing through.

Essence Of Spring

A dancing child
the midst of spring
becomes a sight
as angels sing.
The essence reveals
a brand new day
a time divine
of April and May.
Just like a page
from a story book
essence of spring
gives another look.
A sight of passion
as flowers grow
that once was seen
with winters snow.
So many moments
become so real
the sweetest aroma
and time to feel.
Essence of spring
is that of a heart
beating as trueness
a work of art.
A little child dances
to show her love
for blades of grass
from Heaven above.
It’s as a story
that’s written to sing
portioned with love
essence of spring.

The Ripples

We are the ripples
in waters of time
many a heartbeat
rhythm and rhyme.
Seen as a second
some just walk on by
leaving our ripples
to just wonder why.
Many are reflections
of now and again
found as the ripples
to end and begin.
Yet as a beacon
our ripples become
sights that are seen
as life’s beating drum.
Showing our visions
some too dim to see
only as fragments
of our true reality.
We are the ripples
in waters of life
sometimes revealed
as filled full of strife.
So take the waters
that’s poured on you
and make it better
in the things you do.
Seek to be stronger
as you kneel to pray,
for we are the ripples
of day after day.

Autumn Infused

We’re as autumn
colors of time
displayed together
inside each mind.
The outer level
is just but a scent
lifestyles portrayals
and their intent.
Our skin is seen
as the color we are
timeless discovered
from near to afar.
Yet we’re alike
more ways than one
as autumn infused
in each day begun.
Life is but a story
a time frame to read
as autumns colors
are planted as seed.
We are the morsels
of true living wine
began as a moment
from Lord God divine.
Yet many try to
act as they’re better
seasoned with hatred
and hearts as leather.
Lose all the colors
and being abused.
Find the connections
as autumn infused.

Looking for the truth
might uncover many lies
that you accepted.

Love is a moment
that surpasses many sights
due to illusions.

We are tomatoes
that are waiting to ripen
and find our purpose.

Beyond our limits
are motivators of life
that bring us further.

A shared perception
can become as a friendship
or as a battle.

Trivial moments
are often seen much larger
as we’re viewing them.

Many see winter
as a cold desolate time
and others see snow.

Life as a rose bud
blooms as a new horizon
from winter to spring.

Our journeys begin
as we breathe in our first breath
and open our eyes.

Looking beyond now
can lose sight of the moments
and how they’re gathered.

might be our shadows dancing
showing who we are.

Springtime’s perception
is often but just a flower,
but yet it’s much more.

Various people
in many situations
might become as one.

The hearts of liars
are often filled with hatred
of what that is true.

Challenging someone
can often show your weakness
found within your pride.

Summer’s sun awaits
as springtime concludes its phase
leaving memories.

Life is but a time
that we count by the moments
that turns into years.

Our situations
are brought by many choices
which are right and wrong.

Lost in illusions
the truth can become hidden
beneath our shadows.

Counting the minutes
only slows down the seconds
to where time stands still.

Teaching a student
needs you first to understand
who you are teaching.

Pointless is anger
when without healthy resolve
to find the answers.
