Hello my friend

The weather has been very nice the last
few days aside from a storm that came
through Friday and it knocked out our
computers.  I tried to shut them down
before it all happened,  but I wasn’t fast
enough LOL.  Anyways,  we got them
back up and running.  We’ve been doing
a lot of repairs on the PC’s to fix what
was damaged.  I think they are good to
go now 🙂  So,  what else is going on in
this part of the world?  Well,  Benny is
spending a lot of time outside sitting on
the front steps watching the day go by
and keeping an eye on the neighbors
kids LOL.  Rocky doesn’t like to stay
outside that much.  He prefers to be in
here with us,   but he is always wanting
us to let Benny back in,  but Benny, if
Benny isn’t ready to come back in,  he
will just look at you as if to say,  nope,
I ain’t ready hehehe.  Rocky just a few
moments ago started dancing around
in his either I gotta go potty dance or
his go check on Benny dance LOL.  It’s
hard to distinguish between the two 🙂
They look out for one another.  If you
didn’t know better,  you would swear
that they are brothers.  Of course they
look different,  but the love is family.
LOL Rocky kept pestering us to check
on Benny so Judy put him out on the
steps with him.  We’ll be hearing the
sound of Rocky barking soon to tell
us that he’s ready to come back in :).
Maybe then Benny will be ready to
come back in,  but there is no telling.
Yep,  those boys truly love one another
and for sure they love us as well as
we love them.  So,  what else is going
on around the Pearce’s Place?  Well,
to be honest,  it has been quite slow
around here.  Not much to tell.  I got
my proof copy of my book in the mail
last week,  but I wasn’t happy with the
front page so I redid it and ordered a
second proof to make sure it came out
as I wanted.  Then,  if it is all OK,  I’ll
OK it for publication.  I spend a lot
of time writing,  which does make my
old brain tired,  but I do enjoy writing
and creating the poetry pictures.  We
spend a lot of time watching all of our
favorite TV programs.  I guess we are
what ones would call homebodies LOL.
Though we do from time to time go for
picture taking drives.  Of course I do
take a lot of pictures on our drives to
town or other places.  I use many of
those pictures,  but I have to do a lot
of cropping and straightening being
it’s hard to get a great picture while
riding in the car.  Judy has not figured
out how to dodge all of the frost heaves,
being after winter has done its thing 🙂
they are quite abundant.  It makes for
a rather bumpy ride LOL.  So I have
to do a lot of photo repairs to fix the
pictures that I’m wanting to use for my
poetry hehehe.  That keeps me busy 🙂
Yep,  a lively little home we have here,
NOT Hahaha.  It’s obvious that God
is watching over us.  I bet we’ve got a
few tuckered out angels watching over
us as well 🙂  Right now I can hear our
neighbors riding around in their little
not so little go cart LOL.  Thank You
God for putting Judy and I together
and for these 2 boys that brighten our
days.  Thank You for our families.  My
daughter and granddaughter in Texas
are surely missed as well as my mom
and my sister Peggy.  I have been blessed
with Judy’s family.  I love them dearly.
Thank You God for all that You do.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin
my little search back through all that
I’ve written here to see if I can find me
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 found
a decent title just a few lines back and
now after checking I see that it has not
been used yet,  so used it shall be LOL.
Here goes…


With life that’s passed
and times ahead
minutes are gathered
so abundantly fed.
Scenes we’ve recorded
and remember so well
might become as blessings
in moments of Hell.
Beyond the doorways
of out ways and in
there lives the conclusions
from where we’ve been.
Times so abundant
from yesterdays scenes
might become pathways
of nightmares or dreams.
It’s all how we view them
those times we recall
that display so abundant
the life over all.
So take a breather now
and look for the gain
that’s found so abundant
right after the rain.

There ya go.  I hope you understood the
poem and maybe even liked it hehehehe,
but I won’t hold my breath.  I also hope
that you enjoyed my rambling.  Hopefully
it brought you a little smile.  LOL I know
it made me smile thinking about it all 🙂
I just stopped to watch a few silly videos
with Judy.  LOL some old SNL humor
from the 70’s.  We all need a little bit of
laughter in our lives.  So I reckon 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 only
1 extra this week and in the midst of them
is 1 Christmas poem.  Also I wrote once
again 22 haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.  OK,  so now
I guess 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 whatever’s left of it and a truly blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Now,  where can that
silly off switch be hiding this time LOL?
Hmmmm,  looking around the room for
something out of place or moving when
it should not be moving hehehe.  Aha,
I see ya you little varmint.  You should
of found something a bit larger to hide
behind.  My little Animal figurine isn’t
that big hehehe.   Better luck next week.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Painted Starry Night

With eyes of hopeful
and gleaming true
a night becomes a
wonderful view.
Maybe just a painting
of a time you see
as a starry night sight
of a dreams reality.
Scented with moments
that time can breathe
a painted starry night
that one did conceive.
It is but a painting
a scene that lives on
that was brought to life
as a wonderful song.
The style is magnificent
as it displays a sight
that of a creation
painted starry night.

Christmas Harmony

The chill of winter
begins its frost
as seasons greetings
display their thoughts.
Christmas harmony
sounds of a scene
a time you remember
a fantastic dream.
Found in the books
of a seasonal gaze
the harmony sings
of Christmassy days.
Maybe of a setting
with snow all around
and a house displayed
in a small country town.
Christmas harmony
begins with a sight
and then it becomes as
a moment’s delight.
The aroma of food
as it wafts in the air
brings back memories
of a time somewhere.
A scene you remember
from so long ago
that now displays
a Christmassy glow.
That special moment
that sings in you heart
as Christmas harmony
God’s work of art.

Ghost Of Life

Reflections past
an ocean breeze
begins a quest
for ones to see.
A time arrives
and passes by
leaving footprints
low and high.
Just like a ghost
of life and times
it all becomes
what future finds.
Those memories
that find a way
to leave within
each passing day.
A ghost of life
as a rising sun
grows a memoir
said and done.
Without any words
and without sight
the ghost of life
is distant light.
It’s still alive
as oceans swell
within the stories
times will tell.
It is remembered
as but a time
a ghost of life
within your mind.

Calming Waves

While sitting watching
the time move on
the waves of life are
singing their song.
In a calming essence
of times release
the waves become as
a moment’s peace.
Life is but a second
that’s surely displayed
scented of a summer
minutes have made.
Counted as a portion
that then perceives
as the calming waves
that time conceives.
I can now remember
those days so clear
the passages of time
of my yesteryear.
A seasonal glimpse
of a time I recall
a memorized moment
that stands out tall.
Watching the ships
as they sail on by
as I sat on the rocks
underneath the sky.
The blue skies of life
of the passing days
brought me alive
with calming waves.

Silent Sounds

Looking deep
into my dreams
I see a place of
wondrous scenes.
Geese that swim
in waters blue
beneath the sky
of a hazy hue.
Silent sounds
in light of day
then come alive
in their own way.
Scenes become
the greatest times
silent sounds
as earthly rhymes.
Then they fly
to another place
that lives within
a silent taste.
Food for the eyes
to see so clear
silent sounds
you cannot hear.
Yet they’re seen
as sounds portray
found so sweet
from day to day.
Just like a dream
a mind astounds
it comes alive
in silent sounds.

Spirit Birth

Inside the heart
of living things
there is a place
of raging streams.
The spirit thrives
in point and time
with birth of life
and its design.
We often lose
the sight of this
and one day
just reminisce.
The spirit birth
of life and death
is found within a
moment’s breath.
For as we gaze
at futures style
we often lose
a moment’s mile.
Yet as life is
looked upon
the spirit birth
is never gone.
It still holds fast
to seasons breeze
of which our eyes
may never see.
But when we leave
our flesh on Earth
we’ll then find
our spirit birth.

Fanfare For
The Common Man
Extra Verse

Beneath the rhythms
are so many words
a story,  a glory
as a flock of birds.
A fanfare for
the common man
displays journeys
to walk or stand.
It may seem simple
times record,
but the fanfare
is times accord.
Believing in rhythms
isms explained
much of our journey
is surely attained.
Times we echoed
just but a plan
we found fanfare
for the common man.
Forests of thoughts
displayed in time
seen as a rhythm
found as a rhyme.
Life is a doorway
to seasons displayed
as the magic reveals
what time has made.
Sometimes scenic,
sometimes glum
the fanfare is life
up under the sun.
Time is a painter
that moments define
as we continue
our frame of mind.
This is a journey
that we have at hand.
This is the fanfare
for the common man.

Sky Of Dreams

Fields of wonder,
time of peace
a sky unfolds
to give release.
Cloud formations
create a view,
a sky of dreams
in hazy blue.
Time’s a foothill
found in place,
a scene defined
as life’s embrace.
True are clouds
that paint the sky
a grayish tint
with their reply.
Without questions,
without words
the clouds display
what is not heard.
Yet when gathered
they can speak
a sky of dreams
as life’s antique.
Cracks of lightning
thunder roars
just like clouds
with open doors.
Scenes of wonder
times bestow,
a sky of dreams
can surely grow.

Circles Of Love

Stems of behavior
connect us in styles
sometimes seeking
some circles of smiles.
Trials we endure
are often our minds,
portions uncovered
and their own designs.
We are the branches
that become as a day,
the circles of love
within their own way.
Look with your heart
and not with your eyes,
see what that grows
as a blessings surprise.
Allow ones chances
to become good to go
and the circles of love
will blossom and grow.

A Path To The Sea

Thoughts recalled
a moment’s breeze
is found within
the distant seas.
The minutes gather
to form a bond
a path to the sea
that ones travel on.
It might just be
an imagination
a life’s adventure
times adaptation.
We all might see
a certain style
a path to the sea
with a little smile.
Our journeys may
be just a quest
a search within
to find some rest.
For as we wander
within our mind
a path to the sea
might then unwind.
Becoming a scene
that life displays
maybe a fantasy’s
wonderful ways.
A moment’s quest
might turn out to be
a journey in time
a path to the sea.

Reflecting Pond

When with worry,
when with pain
reflect upon
your daily gain.
Find the moments
the best to see
all your reflections
through history.
Take a breather
catch your breath
within the waters
spirits blessed.
Let your moments
find some peace
as reflections
give release.
Times and places
let them go
to find some peace
and let it flow.
When reflecting
don’t fall prey
to the sad
of a distant day.
The yesterdays
within your view
are not today
so don’t feel blue.
Look for smiles
to travel on
found within the
reflecting pond.

Through our decisions,
the directions that we choose
we discover time.

Countless are seconds
as they’re displayed in minutes
that hours define.

Painted as a scene
that lives and breathes among us
a painter shows life.

Throughout each day
times of deception appear
to fill in each void.

Winter through springtime
gives essence of the changes
that stand out the most.

A mere passing breeze
can become as a whirlwind
that’s not expected.

Beyond the starlight
there may be ones looking back
to see who we are.

So many people
seek answers without questions
and end up empty.

A flower’s burdens
are often found as raindrops
they are not getting.

Placing empty dreams
in the path of your journeys
could lead to deadends.

When time shows darkness
look for the light within it
and find you some peace.

Green grass of summer
becomes torment for mowers
and ones that push them.

Lost in a storm cloud
moments might seem extended,
but time will find peace.

When looking forwards
what’s behind you might get lost,
so don’t lose the past.

Displayed as rainbows
the sky shows many colors
as a sign of peace.

Various turnstiles
display only what you want
and not what you need.

Sharing a sunrise
with someone that you care for
makes it as Heaven.

Having and holding
does not display ownership,
but only a grasp.

One persons trash
might be anothers blessings
to help them get by.

Doorways we step through
often have troubles hidden
in the walls of time.

A ghost from within
can become your life’s nightmare,
so deal with the truth.

The past is the past
and today’s another day.
Learn to live with change.
