I Still Pray


Hello my friends

It’s been a warm passed week,  but it seems
to be cooling down a bit.  The high for today
is 69 F degrees.  Not too bad,  of course the
temperature will be bouncing around quite a
bit this week with Monday high of 77 and
Tuesday 79,  but it shows the Wednesday as
74 and Thursday at 71,  then Friday at 70 🙂
So,  yep,  the weather has not made up its
mind yet LOL.  It’s looking as though that
we have no 80 degree temps in  the forecast
for the next week or so.  Judy and I will be
spending the day Tuesday celebrating my
65th birthday.  Yep,  I’m gaining another
year on this old body.  I’ll let ya know in
next week’s journal what Judy and I did on
my birthday LOL.  Anyways,  next topic 🙂
Our neighbor is putting his underpinning
back on his mobile home.  He took it off
early in the summer.  I am guessing for
some air to help cool his trailer,  but not
really sure.  Anyways,  he’s out there now
hammering away putting it back.  We live
such an exciting life hehehe.  Not much of
a change from last week.  Judy’s sister is
still doing as well as to be expected.  Barb
is still hanging in there.  Please continue to
put her in your prayers.  It looks as though
Judy and I will have to do a little more work
on her birdbath,  but we’ll get R done.  It
might take a little added weight to be added
to the bottom of it to keep it from blowing
away,  but I’ll take care of that.  We are a
team.  She helps me and I help her.  With
us working together,  we can do many things.
Life here at the Pearce’s Place on most days
is quite peaceful.  We watch a lot of TV,  but
we both have our hobbies that keep us busy.
Judy seems to have more hobbies that me :),
but I don’t care.  It’s not a contest hehehe.
It looks as though it might rain tomorrow,
but that’s OK,  as long as it isn’t raining on
Tuesday (my birthday).  We have a few plans
for that day which can’t be done in the rain.
I took my conga drums outside Saturday for
a few music videos.  Yep,  I did a couple of
conga drumming videos and uploaded them
to Youtube and Facebook.  I also took a few
selfies of me on the congas after I was done.
Yes of course I will share a few of them in my
stationery :).  Time may seem to slow down
in certain circumstances,  but in others seem
to put the pedal to the metal.  I think we all
have moments we wonder how come they
went so fast and others that seemed to drag
along like a snail on valium LOL.  I have
had a few of the snail days that I wished I
could find a wormhole in space and hurry
on through hehehe.  Yet there many things
such as the days of my playing music with
my fellow musician friends that I wish had
not of gone by so quickly.  I miss those
days.  Now days all I’ve got is me, myself
and I to play music with.  I still pray that
I find someone before I’m dead to play a
few songs with.  I guess until that day,  I’ll
continue making my solo music videos 🙂
So,  what else is going on or not going on
around this place?  Well,  Judy and I are
still doing all we can to prevent us from
getting Covid.  Being that anti vaxxers are
still causing problems,  we still wear our
masks.  Thankfully we live way out in the
country.  It does have its drawbacks,  but
for the most part it’s great.  We enjoy the
peace and quiet.  We can feel the eyes of
God watching over us as well as many
angels that He has sent to protect us
and we can feel the presence of friendly
spirits that are with us every day.  I am
so very thankful for all that God does
for us each day that we may or may not
be aware of.  Thank You God for that
you do and all that You have done in
our lives.  AMEN.  Now I do believe it’s
time for me to read back on all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the
title of 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 me a
decent title just about halfway back in
my rambling and now after checking I
see that it has not been used yet,  so,
used it shall be today.  Here goes…

I Still Pray

My life might seem
as a bed of nails
at times when I
see many details.
Roads so bumpy
might jar my mind
leaving me aching
from time to time.
Yet I still pray
for a better view
in life thereon
from old to anew.
The seasons pass
unleashing sights
some as dreams
and some as frights.
Yet I still pray
for peace and love
to be the essence
sent from above.
I now look back
and see each day
that I am thankful
as I still pray.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even a bit of my rambling 🙂
LOL the boys are lying in the floor and
doing doggy talk in their sleep.  I wish I
understood what they were saying hehehe.
Judy is behind me crocheting.  She seems
to enjoy doing that,  although I’m hoping
she does a little painting one day soon 🙂
Well,  that is about all that I have for you
other than what I tell you every week and
that is,  I wrote a few more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with 2
Christmas poems in the mix.  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 is time for me to begin searching for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but surely
not before I wish you a wonderful week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now,  where can that ornery off switch be
trying not so much to hide hehehe?  LOL
Oh my heavens,  I think you have ran out
of places to hide haven’t ya.  Though I do
believe you could of found a better place
to hide other than behind my orange juice
glass LOL.  Try harder next time ya silly.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Traveling Winds

Flying in the sky
churned by the wind
birds fly above,
soon they’ll descend.
Traveling to places
as time comes in view,
the winds of change
show a cosmic hue.
Providing a glimpse
of a passing array
in traveling winds
of a wondrous display.
Time can be echoes
of a passing sight
winds on a journey
with scenes in flight.
Sights such as seagulls
flying in the breeze
hovering searching
for food in the seas.
This might only be
a moment’s reflection
within some photos
a timeless connection.
It might even be
where time transcends
within the journeys
of traveling winds.

Unleashed Desires

Snow covered trees
in a picture or two
become so unleashed
in a wonderful view.
The textures of ice
with a whitish array
unleashed desires
are seen day to day.
Winters of windows
that time opens wide
become as memories
Christmas applied.
Scenic doorways
places we remember
become as a sparkle
Christmas December.
Unleashed desires
to magical dreams
become the windows
to so many scenes.
Times as reflections
a heartbeat admires
may then become as
unleashed desires.

Loving Eyes

A friend of life
a friend of time
has loving eyes
the times refine.
Just as a dream
a heart shines on
that of moments
of a loving song.
Sung as a tune
a simple melody
a time so divine
simple and free.
It is a blessing
a friend indeed
within a photo
a timeless seed.
Beating essence
becomes alive
within the sight
of loving eyes

Country Eyes

Looking searching
for some signs
passing moments
life’s designs.
You might arrive
at scenic styles
with country eyes
peaceful smiles.
The stage may be
an animal farm
as country eyes
find the charm.
Seeking blessings
timeless true
to find within
a magical view.
Living history
beneath the skies
that enlightens
country eyes.

Together Dreaming

Standing in a moment
watching time fly
while arms together
look up to the sky.
Finding a doorway
to a dreamer’s mind
together dreaming
watching life unwind.
This is a pathway
a journey through
seen as life’s windows
of times thereunto.
We are the dreamers
that hold in place
scenes that become
a warm embrace.
Looking to the sky
we might see a cloud
floating as a dream
so wondrously proud.
Below may be colors
of an autumn day
synched with pages
of an awesome array.
A moment in time
might become found
together dreaming
looking all around.

Winter Memory

The seasons pass by
leaving us sights
seeming so timeless
the days and nights.
Christmas passions
fill up the memories
as many snowflakes
will surely unfreeze.
Maybe a train track
of a time and place
or maybe a dream
you might embrace.
The moment seen
may seem so bland
as that of scenery
or a photo in hand.
Christmas still lives
as moments in time
places and faces
a wondrous design.
Scenes might elude
the sights you see
but continue on
in a winter memory.

Sparkle in The Sky

Within a winter’s day
sunshine may glow
an essence of beauty
in a season of snow.
Sparkling as a dream
in a wonderful way
flames up above us
expose winter’s day.
Challenging eyesight
to look thereupon
the sparkle in the sky
before it is gone.
The day shows scenes
that live within time
so often as Christmas
in memories mind.
Living for a moment
that enhances a view
the sparkle in the sky
says how do you do.
Reaching with warmth
from up so very high
it is the sunshine
a sparkle in the sky.

Time Fades Away

Winter’s snow melts
and leaves in place
times to remind
of a scenic embrace.
Formed as a puzzle
with pieces of white
just melting away
to form a new sight.
Time fades away
leaving a glimpse
of wintertime’s skies
seeming past tense.
Soon in its place
flowers will bloom
from April to May
and then unto June.
Time begins paths
journeys to travel
creating doorways
as seconds unravel.
Ages are produced
from day unto day
as life moves on
and time fades away.

Strolling Within

Inside a turnstile
choices may come
forming a journey
 to new days begun.
Strolling in scenes
that trees defend
speaking the words
as whispering wind.
Becoming patterns
minutes exclaim
as strolling within
with life to attain.
We may encounter
a pathway of time
within our strolling
within our mind.
It might enlighten
your heart’s desires
with all the sights
a mindset acquires.
Look deep inside
and see time begin
seeming illusions
strolling within.

Watercolor Dreams

Pictures we’ve taken
might seem to be
watercolor dreams
so timeless to see.
They might enlighten
a stage or a style
of a watercolor scene
that displays a smile.
There may be leaves
of a colorful hue
as pages are turned
to a brand new view.
In essence they show
how time can change
from now and again
in pictures domain.
Photographs taken
might surely show
times as reflections
we used to know.
Moments evolving
into memories scenes
that may come alive
in watercolor dreams.

for Aug 28,  2021

Change can be viewpoints
that some see differently
within their own eyes.

Time can be painted
in a photo that you see
that echoes of life.

Stages we walk on
might not be for us alone,
but for others too.

Thinking that your great
at doing what others do
might be in your head.

Listening to self
and not hearing commonsense
might create problems.

Trivial insight
leaves important things helpless,
because it’s not seen.

Trekking down a path
that you may have found one day
might have hidden pain.

Questions unanswered
might haunt us just like a ghost
until we find truth.

Glancing at the sun
can become a blinding sight
or a learning groove.

Making mud from dirt
is like throwing words on lies.
for it helps them spread.

The facts of moments
are often hidden from us
until we seek them.

The leaves of autumn
become as artwork of bliss
textured with colors.

Scenic portrayals
can often be in our mind
as we imagine.

Before and after
there is a moment of thought
about the outcome.

Windows to new views
might show only a dreamworld
that we’re wishing for.

Limitless turnstiles
are filled with destinations
that are good and bad.

The trials of life
are teachers of many sorts
some painful some not.

Living as a weed
that crowds and takes others breaths
is very greedy.

Turbulent storm clouds
may not have a storm within
and just pass us by.

Seasons of windows
display stages of beauty
that many don’t see.

Perception may change
as time turns many pages
becoming a book.

Ages of summer
may reflect within autumn
as winter begins.
