Definitely A Blessing


Hello my friends

I’ve been on the healing path here lately.  My
bruised up face from my fall is slowly showing
less signs of the fall.  Also I went to the doctor
Friday and she renewed my prescription for my
Advair and my Ventolin inhaler.  It seems that
me not having those is why I lost my voice.  I
was coughing so much and could not breathe
very well.  My doctor that I had before quit
and she canceled my prescription which left me
without it for a few months 🙂  So,  now I can
talk and sing again.  Not much else is going on.
Springtime has finally taken a firm grasp and
the dandelions are growing all over the place.
It looks like I will be giving our brand new
lawnmower and tryout real soon 🙂  Actually
I’m excited about that LOL.  Like the first
time I used our snow blower hehehe.  Yeppers
it doesn’t take much to entertain me hehehe.
I’ve been doing quite a bit of writing which
I’m guessing comes to no surprise to you 🙂
Right now it’s 63 F degrees at 2 PM.  Not too
bad for springtime 🙂  The high for today is
supposed to be 66,  but we shall see.  The
rest of the week is supposed to be more or
near the same.  Nights are in the 30’s and
40’s.  I can handle that.  Yep it’s better than
that old Texas heat that I grew up with 🙂
Although I do miss going swimming at the
apartments where we used to live.  There’s
a downfall to anything if you think about
it LOL.  Today is a bit cloudy,  but I like
it.  The clouds give the sky a personality 🙂
Judy has still been playing taxi for Chance
(our oldest grandson) and his girl friend,
but hopefully they will soon get another
car.  Theirs died and it cost too much to
fix it.  Oh well,  we don’t mind helping out.
But it would be nice to be able to sleep in
like we used to LOL.  There’s not much
else going on around The Pearce’s Place.
Judy and I haven’t many plans for today
other than what she just got a call to do,
which is take Chance up to his mothers
house in Caribou this evening.  He’s got
a job in Caribou this week for a roofing
company and he’ll ride to work with his
dad.  Both Benny and Rocky are asleep
in their doggy beds in the floor between
Judy and I right now.  LOL I just took
a few pictures of them and they opened
their eyes for the pictures.  We love our
boys.  They keep us entertained.  In the
next few days we’ll begin our walks in the
field with them.  They love to go on field
trips LOL.  Especially with us 🙂  When
the snow in winter gets too deep,  I am
unable to take them for field trips,  but
they seem to still wanna go hehehe.  Yep,
our dogs love to go for walks with us 🙂
They are definitely a blessing.  I hope my
daughter Jamye and granddaughter Sami
will be able to come up again soon.  I’d
love to see them.  They ran into a little
winter weather trouble when they were
headed home December of 2015. She
said she’s not gonna come up during the
winter again LOL.  Anyways,  life is as
it is,  and we are still kicking.  God is
still watching over us,  even when there
are times it might not seem like it.  He
has a way of allowing what’s needed to
strengthen us for future days.  So with
that said,  I reckon it’s time for me to
begin my little journey 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 🙂
And 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  few lines back and
now after checking I see that it has not
been used yet,  so used it shall be LOL.
Here goes…

Definitely A Blessing

Those times we remember
those times we recall
that we stumbled on lifetimes
which caused us to fall.
They turned into lessons
becoming times to be
definitely a blessing
to help us to see.
For if we had not stumbled
and we had not fell
we might not see so clearly
the way away from Hell.
We’ve each found crossroads
to hither and thither to
which became as a journey
to determine a new view.
So don’t regret the lessons
that you learned time again
for they’re definitely a blessing
to help you again begin.

There ya go LOL.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even understood it.  Also
I hope my rambling kept you entertained 🙂
Judy just left out to go and pick up Danica,
(Chances girlfriend) from work and then go
to take Chance to Caribou.  Judy is going to
stop and KFC/Tacobell and get us dinner so
we don’t have to cook this evening.  Benny
and Rocky stayed home with me 🙂  Though
both of them are in the kitchen at the gate
watching the front door expecting Judy to
come walking through any minute hehehe.
LOL they’ve got quite a wait,  unless Judy
comes back and decides for me to go with
her to take Chance to Caribou,  but even
then,  in that case they would have to stay
home in their crates.  No room in the car
for us all 🙂  Though I gave Judy five dollars
to add with hers to pay for the food,  so she
might just go without me.  You never know.
I’m gonna try and get this finished just in
case,  so I guess it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you every week and that is,  I
wrote some poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10
more poems with 1 extra,  with 1 Christmas
poem in the mix.  Also,  I wrote once again
22 more haiku for all the haiku lovers out
there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either
or both that you like.  Now I believe it is
time for me to begin my search for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a most 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 are you
trying to hide this time????  Hmmmmm,
searching all of your passed hiding spots.
I don’t see,,,,,,,, Wait a minute,  I don’t
recall my camera having a rocking motion
to it LOL.  Yes I know,  it’s not sitting
level,  but you could’ve just not leaned up
against it hehehe.  Better luck next week.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Thoughts Exposed

Meaningless chatter
from a moment’s time
might just expose
what others will find.
Maybe a hillside
or maybe just a sight
exposed as illusions
we find in daylight.
There might be snow
on a hillside we gaze
dotted with landscape
of a wintery phase.
Our thoughts exposed
might become a scene
found on the hillside
as a fantastic dream.
Time becomes counted
as minutes pass by
exposed as a journey
with us asking why.
Limits on our thinking
are ours to perceive
our thoughts exposed
as the way we believe.
Yet as a doorway
our mind might confide
to all that’s exposed
and all that’s inside.
We must keep moving
with hearts enclosed
even when at times
with thoughts exposed.

Time within time
of a place of peace
my heart found life
of a moment’s release.
It was just like a page
from a story book
that time became alive
what many mistook.
Trees grasping hold
of shadows of time
as they’re surveying
what moments remind.
Scented as a season
that ends with a flair
with patches of snow
as a winter’s affair.
While chasing dreams
of a natures array
I found a portion
of a springtime day.
It was the beginning
of a sight to see
placed there by God
from Him unto me.
I found some peace
as I stood very still
watching life flicker
as a candle on a hill.
It might seem painted
what time was displaying
but it’s just a moment
that I was surveying.

Autumn’s Peace

Life filled with colors
of leaves that shine
become as a picture
recalled of a time.
Autumn of grandeur
scented with hues
colors so brilliantly
become infused.
Life filled with stages
of brown unto gold
become as a story
that autumn has told.
Words of the colors
that unfold desire
bring forth an essence
of autumn’s entire.
Some maybe timid
and some so bright
autumn unleashes
its magical sight.
The same as a story
with words of time
given from Heaven
so wondrous divine.
Life filled with scenes
of colors so grand
as autumn’s pages
are seen where I stand.
This is what I see
when looking at leaves
colors of a moment
as autumn’s peace.

Someone’s Dream

Glistening waters
boats gliding through
becomes as a memoir
that’s written in view.
Words that of ripples
waters that display
a scene within a dream
of one summer’s day.
Someone’s dream
that became as a time
a glistening story
that life did define.
It could be a song
someone sings so true
as glistening waters
that are oh so blue.
A rippling pageant
of an evening’s retreat
could be a moment
within a heartbeat.
Minutes pass quickly
as the waters flow
while two then together
in a boat will row.
Stroking waters gently
as time moves along
while the dream creates
a glistening song.
It’s first as a rhythm
and then as a scene
a song oh so peaceful
within someone’s dream.

Time’s  Perception

Standing still
with earthly tunes
time can be like
holding balloons.
Waiting for minutes
as seconds arrive
time’s perception
is how we survive.
Holding too loosely
our time flies away
like holding balloons
on a real breezy day.
Look to the heavens
and grasp real tight
the beauty of life
that is then in sight.
For time’s perception
is just but a thing
as a girl with balloons
in a painted scene.

Eve Of Fall

Colors of autumn
grow in the air
displaying portions
a moment of flair.
The style is seen
as timeless can be
as the eve of fall
creates history.
An old little cabin
might then exist
as the eve of fall
will turn and twist.
Becoming scenes
that times unveil
as autumns colors
in every detail.
Displayed as peace
created in time
as the eve of fall
is a wonderful find.
It blossoms beyond
each scenic sight
not just by day
but also by night.
The time is alive
with a breath of air
breathed with peace
that none compare.
It’s then of autumn
a time I recall
and seen so alive
as the eve of fall.

Winter’s Eve

The sun becomes
a sight to see
as minutes pass
in front of me.
The sky records
the time and place
as winter’s eve
a skyline face.
Some clouds unite
to bring a view
of winter’s scenes
from white to blue.
Then a change
begins its phase
as sunlight shines
from gold to gray.
It is a moment
so great to see
that came in view
one winter’s eve.

Springtime Weeds

Colors of yellow
in fields of green
the season uncovers
a beautiful scene.
Springtime essence
weeds that become
flowers of beauty
the same as the sun.
Springtime weeds
as dandelions grow
display their life
in fields full of flow.
Becoming flowers
to hide their style
springtime weeds
will surely compile.
Dandelions gather
to become a sight
a scene we discover
within the daylight.
Planted as seedlings
they spread beyond
the sight of evening
to the break of dawn.
The yellow blossoms
into such a way
that seems as Heaven
on a springtime day.
For they soon die out
as summertime seeds
to once again grow as
springtime weeds.

One Summer’s Day

One summer’s day
I found in the air
a scent so delightful
I sought to compare.
I got out our grill
and filled it with coal
then stoked up a fire
to complete my goal.
Then in a moment
I got hamburger meat
and then prepared it
to cook up to eat.
My wife brought buns
to complete the task
and then we sat down
and ate them real fast.
This was delightful
a wonderful way
found as a blessing
on one summer’s day.

As Children Play

On high snow mounds
of white fallen snow
I could hear laughing,
it was beginning to grow.
The season of winter
had brought into view
some children playing
in the snow peekaboo.
Hiding deep in the snow
they’d pop up and smile
tossing some snowballs
that they did compile.
While they were playing
our little dog grinned
watching and waiting
for a time to contend.
He wanted to play then
while I watched them too
on this Christmassy day
of a seasonal view.
It seemed as if magic
the snow falling down
as it piled up quickly
in mounds on the ground.
The kids were laughing
and having some fun
on this magical day
that was second to none.
So as I took pictures
of that wonderful day
I relived Christmastime
as children play.

Seed Of Life

Time is portioned
into some seeds
formed from time
as yellow weeds.
Dandelions grow
to become a sight
a time to bestow
yellow to white.
The seed of life
is oh so amazing
sights of summer
many are gazing.
Fields of yellow
in midst of time
become so white
for life to find.
The seed of life
becomes as air
blown in time
from here to there.
A dandelions life
is that of a style
the seed of life
as times turnstile.

Within a moment
holds chances for a lifetime
to be discovered.

When in a nightmare
look for the bright perspectives
to make it a dream.

Searching for the stars
in the midst of a cloud
you might find raindrops.

Stuck in illusions
you might not see the blessings
and end in despair.

Look beyond sadness
and seek for smiles within,
for they do exist.

Love is a healer
as it pours on like sugar
to sweeten our life.

Change is perspective
when looking at an ocean,
for time creates views.

Lust of another
can corrupt you relations
leaving emptiness.

The need of flowers
is that of rain and sunshine
along with good dirt.

Looking through windows
you might see moments wrongly
due to bad timing.

Time’s like a painting
with brushstrokes of living art
creating our lives.

The winds of our lives
often blow as tornadoes,
but prayer can send peace.

Your guiding spirits
might be from another world
and here just for you.

Many aromas
can often hide what they are
until you see them.

Standing in the rain
you might only see struggles
but peace is within.

A frog that jumps out
might land in a lily pond
or in a snakes mouth.

The wonders of life
are hidden in the moments
awaiting our sight.

Morning gives chances
for a new day’s beginning,
so use it wisely.

Leaves within autumn
show their perspective viewpoints
as they are changing.

The length of a day
is often viewed as shadows
that we watch pass by.

Springtime brings changes
that are portions of winter
as time moves along.

Today’s tomorrow
will become our yesterday
that we may have feared.
