In Other Words


Hello my friends

It’s been another cold and snowy week up this way.  Last
night it snowed a little bit more,  but thankfully it was not
anything of a grand scale.  At least not for us hehehe  The
old man of winter has a lot more time to play with us,  so
I’m sure we’ll get a lot more snow before it’s over with 🙂
We’ve been dealing with it as we do every year.  Taking
pictures and trying to stay warm with a random drive to
town ever so often to buy groceries and such.  Benny is
still loving the snow and Milo still don’t hehehe.  So what
else is there to tell ya.  Oh yea,  Judy’s youngest daughter
Helena and our grandson  came to visit Wednesday and
Christian spent the day with us while Helena went to work.
It was a great visit.  Then Thursday Judy went over to her
sister Trudy’s house and visited for a while.  She barely
made it out of our driveway hehehe.  She had to back
up and get a running start at it to get through the snow
drift.  While Judy was gone,  it began snowing a little bit
harder and I went out with the snow shovel and tried to
shovel down the driveway as best that I could so that
if our landlord didn’t make here to plow before Judy got
back,  she might be able to make it in our driveway 🙂
Thank God,  our landlord showed up and plowed the
driveway before she got home.  He got stuck in a snow
bank while plowing and he and I had to dig his truck
out.  He had just finished plowing when Judy pulled
up.  Perfect timing hehehe.  Yep,  the driveway was
nice and plowed for her to come and park the car 🙂
Calvin thanked me for helping him dig out his truck.
I told him if I hadn’t of,  our driveway might of never
gotten plowed LOL.  Anyways,  I took a few pictures,
as if you didn’t think I would hehehe.  I took a few
sunset pictures and I even got a picture of the black
moon.  It’s looking like we might get a little bit more
snow tonight and maybe some in the middle of the
week,  but for now it seems the sky snow machine
is at rest or at least it is up here.  I’m sure it’ll crank
back up again soon hehehe.  We’ve been known to
get our worst snow storms in March LOL.  We did
last year.  So,  what else is there to ramble about?
Well,  Benny just strolled in from the living room.
I guess he got tired of waiting for Judy to get home
and decided to join me and Milo in here.  I just called
our internet server and got me another email address.
I might let this WT email address go soon,  but before
I do,  I will have to spend some time changing all of
my email addresses on my many different programs
and places of business.  That will take me quite a
while.  I’ve had this WT address for over a decade.
Before it,  I had another address,  but it was also on
WT hehehe.  So I might be attempting to change it
over soon.  It might take me a while though hehehe.
Pioneer Broadband allows us 5 email addresses
and this new one will be 3 for us.  I’ve been using
my other Pwless email for other things and I need
2 separate email addresses to keep track of things.
My Hotmail and Yahoo are more for junk.  They’re
only good for plain text emails,  which I have them
locked on to other things LOL.  Yes,  I’ve been on
the net for many a year hehehe.  I’ve been doing
my Animal’s Greetings for about 2 decades LOL
although it didn’t start out as it is today.  It went
through many different pathways changing styles.
It took a number of years to find the right format
that would be what it is today.  I know a few of you
on Yahoo,  Hotmail etc etc are receiving this in
the old plain jane style,  but there are many out
there that are receiving this in my stationery style.
Those that get it that way can see what all that I’m
talking about when I talk about pictures hehehe.
Anyways,  next topic.  Milo just pawed at the door
to tell me that he needs to go outside and potty
and from the look on little Benny’s face,  I think
he needs to go out also hehehe.  I let them both
out and waited for them to get done.  They are
now back inside,  although Benny has chosen to
perch himself on the recliner again and wait for
his mom to get home.  Judy won’t be home for a
few more hours,  so he might be back in here in
a bit LOL.  Milo is in here back in his favorite
place right in the floor beside me in his doggy
bed.  It’s 10 F degrees right now at 8:30 PM 🙂
but was only supposed to drop to 16 F degrees by
morning,  so whatever LOL.  Tomorrow is a bit
of a different story,  but it’s still not as bad as it
has been or as it will get.  Back in 2009 we had
almost a month of temperatures of subzero day
and night hehehe.  About 3 weeks of 50 below
or thereabouts hehehe.  So this ain’t nothing LOL.
It’s beginning to feel like I have always been up
here hehehe.  It’ only been 7 years,  but it feels
like it’s been much longer.  It even seems like
Benny and Milo have always been here,  but it’s
been just since 2012.  We got Benny in March
of 2012 and Milo in October of the same year.
Benny was only about 7 1\2 months old when we
got him hehehe.  Milo though was almost 8 years
old.  He turned 8 October 31 2012.  Yep.  he’s
a Halloween dog LOL.  Judy and I have been
married for 13 years.  Who would of ever thought
that I would find someone that could put up with
me hehehe.  Hey,  she might toss me out before
it’s over and trade me in on a new model LOL.
Just kidding hehehe.  I know she loves me and
I truly love her.  We have our good and bad days.
No marriage is without a few stumbling blocks.
Even friendship has its ups and downs.  That’s
what’s called life.  We each have our differences
and even identical twins have their differences.
More than you might be aware of.  What;s on
the outside might not mirror what’s on the inside
and visa versa.  Even mirror twins have their
differences.  They might reflect one another,
but they have their own personalities.  We are
each different but alike in many ways.  We might
not see the likenesses until we start noticing
things that are familiar.  God gave us each one
a free will to be who we are meant to be.  Many
will abuse that free will and turn themselves into
a nightmare.  In other words,  God meant for us
to use good judgment with help from our humane
conscience.  Don’t let ones to deceive you into
doing what you truly know better.  Let God be
your guide.  Don’t let Satan trick you into doing
what you shouldn’t be doing.  His demons are
all around and they will often work through other
people that have fallen for their trickery.  I’ve
been there done that and known many that have
also and are for that matter still being bamboozled.
Let your conscience help you to discern right from
wrong.  Now,  I believe it’s time for me be taking
my little trip 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 little place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a good title and now after
checking I see that it has not been used,  at least
not by me hehehe.  So here goes nothing 🙂

In Other Words

Without our questions
what and why
in other words
would just run dry.
Our many patterns
daily found
in other words
might run aground.
Ones sinking ships
of yesterdays
in other words
might be a phase.
The storms that billow
in front of you
in other words
might teach you true.
Those memories
of days gone by
in other words
might make us cry.
God shows blessings
here and there
in other words
our answered prayer.
So without those
things you’ve done
in other words
you’ve just begun.

Well,  there ya go hehehe.  It might not make any sense
to you,  but hey,  it’s what I thought of when I found the
title.  Many of my poems might seem as riddles hehehe.
Figure it out!  So,  what else is there to tell you that needs
be told?  Milo’s going to the vet this week for some shots.
He’s OK,  they’re just regular prevention shots such as
distemper and rabies.  Though I think he’s going for his
distemper this time.  It might be the other.  I can never
keep up with all of that LOL.  The vet will take care of
it hehehe.  Benny is up to date with all his shots.  Milo is
back to his old ornery self.  Actually since Judy sheered
him,  he’s been acting more like a pup hehehe.  Him and
Benny will bounce around all over the place.  I think the
pounds of hair that Judy cut off of him made him feel
lighter LOL.  There wasn’t much of a change in Benny.
He’s always acted like a pup hehehe.  Though Benny
loves getting his hair trimmed.  He almost fell asleep
while Judy was trimming him LOL.  Milo wasn’t quite
as happy about it hehehe.  Anyways,  they’re hair is
already growing back.  Judy didn’t cut it real short,
being it is still wintertime.  I just heard a truck revving
it’s engine and looked out the backdoor and it was just
our neighbor across the road plowing his driveway.
I guess Benny has gotten used to those sounds LOL.
He isn’t barking at it 🙂  Benny’s a good boy and so
is his big brother Milo.  We don’t know what we’d
do without them.  They’re our little boys hehehehe.
So I reckon I need to tell you what I tell you almost
every week and that is I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems and 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you like one or two of either or both 🙂  So now
I believe it’s time for me to be searching for that
not so elusive off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend or at least what’s left
of it and a truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  OK now,  where
are ya hiding this week?  Ah hah,  I see ya!  You
thought I wouldn’t see ya there hiding behind my
flashlight didn’t ya?  Well,  I saw ya when you
moved and caused it to roll and turn on hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe 🙂

The Far Sky

Distant clouds
are found united
in the far sky
so excited.
All the scenes
in skies of blue
are as paintings
The sky brings sights
that come alive
that it seems
the winds will drive.
In the far sky
up above
there might be
a duck or dove.
Flying briskly
low and high
found within
the days far sky.

Open Book

A word that’s spoken
in our sight
might be wrong
or might be right.
An open book
with times details
might be wise
with lowered sails.
Many people
only thrive
to see what all
that is your drive.
A silent word
with actions laid
might be found
a bit unmade.
So if you are
found mistook
with your daily
open book.
Seek a mirror
to look in
and find where
you need begin.
In your actions
you might show
an open book
from long ago.
Let your baggage
find some rest
letting now days
to attest.
All the words
from yesterdays
now have better
times displays.
So when people
have a look
they’ll find truth
an open book.

Snow Street

A wintery road
with icy ways
finds some snow
on winters days.
A snow street found
with miles to ride
opens up
for ones to drive.
The whitish scenes
from side to side
are from snow
so much applied.
A snow street then
where cars have gone
becomes a view
as time moves on.
Cameras clicking
taking pictures
of a snow street
whitish mixtures.
Snowflakes falling
at the feet
of a wintery
sweet snow street.

The Night Sky

As stars might twinkle
in the night
there might be a
moon so bright.
Found as Heaven
opened wide
the night sky is
our dreams applied.
With the portions
God has shown
in the night sky
prayers are grown.
As we look up
watching time
the night sky might
seem as a rhyme.
Rhythms beating
Heaven laid
in the night sky
God has made.

Angels of Dawn

Morning finds blessings
that come along
found as God’s answers
angels of dawn.
Blessings uncovered
surely to see
angels of dawn
through our history.
Sometimes the angels
will hold our hand
when we are weak
and barely to stand.
Mornings arrival
gives some a chance
that as time ticks on
is their ambulance.
Don’t be hardheaded
as time moves along.
Let Lord God help you
with angels of dawn.

Of Mask And Shadow

While ones try to hide
of mask and shadow
they might then elude
what’s better to know.
Not allowing others
to see who they are
while mask and shadow
is in them by far.
The truth will be found
no matter how hard
you try to elude
your truthful bombard.
Of mask and shadow
will not last long,
for the truth will show
what’s right or wrong.
For God will display
all that you know
the truth behind
of mask and shadow.

Eyes In The Dark

In the night hours
you might be found
with eyes in the dark
as you look around.
Life in the shadows
with mysteries look
might turn out to be
what’s just mistook.
Eyes in the dark
might be only seen
found as a nightmare
or just a dream.
Often so fearfully
we’ll get a glance
of eyes in the dark
that might seem to dance.
Yet they’re so often
only a spark
of what we fear of
eyes in the dark.

Leftover Dreams

Hearts filled with passion
with leftover dreams
might find some fields of
heartfelt cuisines
Life that is blossoming
hearts opened wide
with leftover dreams
to then be applied.
Seasonal journeys
of dreams evermore
are found in the dreams
of shore after shore.
Leftover dreams
of heartfelt desires
might be the sparking
of true lovers fires.
Don’t lose the hope
of those special scenes
found in the blessings of
leftover dreams.

Let not your passed days
to tear you apart.
Rise now with prayerful
take Jesus to heart.
Don’t let the bad times
to be all you see.
Rise now with prayerful
to new history.
Let Jesus guide you
through now and tomorrow.
Rise now with hopeful
and lose all your sorrow.
Life might seem gruesome,
but there is some good.
Rise now and see all
which now that you should.
Find all the goodness
that lives now today.
Rise now with Lord God
and kneel down and pray.

A Snowy Lullaby

Snowflakes found falling
in winters own world
are a snowy lullaby
that time has unfurled.
Floating down gracefully
to land on the ground
they’re a snowy lullaby
without a sound.
They sing in the breezes
without much a choice
a snowy lullaby
that’s without a voice.
They float so peacefully
every which way
a snowy lullaby
with day after day.
Winters own magical
presents are found
as a snowy lullaby
without a sound.

for Feb 20,  2015

Minds found unopened
lose the possibilities
and become stagnate.

Living in the past
could stop one from loving you,
for they are today.

The stars that twinkle
tell of their own existence
from so faraway.

With just a mere thought
our lives can be much better
so begin thinking.

Lives in our past tense
might of seemed to be better,
but might of been worse.

Allowing today
to become just a moment
could lose its value.

A snowflake that falls
has no clue where it will land,
but yet it has faith.

Today finds a place
that allows our yesterdays
to be as lessons.

As the sunlight fades
and the night comes into view
the sky fills with stars.

Looking beyond dreams
you might find yourself awake
gasping for a breath.

When we are angered
emotions might take over
and begin to swell.

Life is a porthole
through yesterdays tomorrow
found within today.

Images of life
might turn into illusions
if we live in lies.

An ego that’s swelled
could be your own dynamite
as it is blown up.

Fantasy living
brings chances for delusion
causing much sadness.

The fish in water
knows not its diameter
for it does not care.

When life gives problems
use them as tomorrows tools
to better your life.

Having a heartbeat
does not consummate living
for life is much more.

When hearing echoes
you might think that they are near
when they’re faraway.

The path of a star
may have begun years ago
and also ended.

Peace can be entered
when common ground is surmised
with good connections.

Looking up at night
you might see some stars twinkling
and some not so bright.

More Than A Memory


Hello my friends

How have you been?  We’ve been watching it snow as it is this
very moment.  The wind is blowing big time.  The passed week
has been sort of peaceful.  Judy gave the boys a haircut.  Milo
was first and then Benny had his turn with the snippers hehehe.
With all of the hair that got cut off we could of built two more
dogs,  but of course lifeless LOL.  They both seemed too like
their new haircuts hehehe.  Milo doesn’t look like himself LOL.
He had a vet appointment Thursday and the vet almost didn’t
recognize him hehehe.  Judy had an appointment with the eye
doctor later that day and our neighbors wanted to ride with us
and drop them off at the grocery store on the way to the eye
doctor.  So after Judy’s appointment,  I had to drive being Judy
had her eyes dilated.  We went and picked up our neighbors
Mark and Charlene and then headed home. The boys had to
stay home,  being there was no room for them in the car LOL.
Anyways,  Judy took a lot of pictures of the boys with their
new haircuts.  Milo wasn’t too thrilled about getting his hair
cut,  but Benny just enjoyed it as always.  He only got a little
upset when she got close to his privates LOL.  Hey,  I would
of gotten a little nervous too,  so I totally understood hehehe.
Milo seems to be a little more chipper now with a few pounds
of hair removed from his body hehehe.  He’s acting like a
pup.  Benny has always acted that way so the only thing that
has changed is his loss of hair LOL.  They are both bouncing
around the house right now.  Milo had to go pee and I opened
the door to let him out,  but when he saw all of the snow piled
up on the steps,  I think he had second thoughts.  He managed
to get down the steps through the snow and do his thing and
then he trudged back up the steps and bounced through the
kitchen where Judy is now fixing us breakfast.  Yes,  Judy is
home.  She went and took care of her mom yesterday so she
would not have to go today.  Judy’s sister had called in and
was not going to work today (Sunday) due to the blizzard :).
It didn’t start snowing until late last night up here.  Judy made
it home as it was just beginning to snow last night.  Right now
it’s 3 F degrees with the wind blowing about 30 MPH and 50
mile an hour gust.  Yep,  the snow is blowing pretty good :).  I’ll
have to go and sweep off our front steps often to keep us from
being snowed in LOL.  Speaking of which I guess I need to do
it right now.  I’ll be back.  Ok, so now the boys can get outside
without having to plow through the snow,  but it’s only a brief
fix LOL.   I’m sure they will be snowed under again shortly.
When I came back in,  both Benny and Milo were all excited
and jumping up for me to pet them.  Benny would jump up
and Milo would knock him down and Milo would jump up
and Benny would knock him down.  They wanted undivided
attention,  but soon both jumped up for me to pet them.  Milo
is now in the kitchen barking at Judy/mom,  because he can
smell the bacon and eggs frying hehehe.   Judy’s making us
omelets and I’m sure she will do as I always do and make a
little extra for the boys LOL.  Hehehe I almost blew away
when I was outside shoveling.  The snow kept blowing back
in my face LOL.  The snow on my head has now melted and
now my head is wet hehehe.  Oh well,  it’s dry until I have do
a repeat journey outside to do the same again 🙂  Yes we live
in a very exciting place,  though most of the excitement is
brought on by us LOL.  Being I love the snow and still have
fun playing in it.  Benny also loves to play in the snow and
we will often go outside and romp around together in it :).
Milo isn’t that crazy about the snow,  but he does from time
to time go exploring in it.  Right now Benny and Milo are
in here wanting me to pet them.  Milo jumped up on the
edge of my chair and nudged me hehehe.  Benny followed
suit :).  I think breakfast is almost ready and I may have
to take a little pause from writing so I can eat.  Not a paws.
So I’m done eating and Judy and I each gave them some
of our bacon.  Milo wants more LOL.  He’s a bottomless
pit hehehe.  He’s now eating some of the dried food that
we keep in their silver food pans always.  I usually don’t
feed them their canned food until later in the day.  The vet
said give him food.  He seems to burn it off and it keeps
his blood sugar where it needs to be.  So they both get
fed being Benny is an energetic little boy and he seems
to burn it off as well,  but he’s not diabetic.  Although it
seems that Benny doesn’t want to eat near as often as
Milo does so he don’t.  Benny’s got treats scattered all
throughout the house that he didn’t want to eat at that
moment hehehe.  Milo will often find them LOL and get
growled at by Benny hehehe.  Benny’s protective over
what he’s not gonna eat LOL.  Yeppers,  he’s a silly boy.
I just took a looksee out our front door and the snowing
has lightened up for the moment,  but the wind is still a
blowing strong.  Benny had to go outside to go potty and
the poor little guy was having trouble being he ended up
with poop in his hair,  so I brought him in and washed
him off in the bathtub.  He’s happy now.  I trimmed the
hair on his bum so he wouldn’t have that problem again
for a while.  The things we do for these boys we would
never think of doing for someone else,  but the fact is
that there are many out there that have similar problems
due too health issues or missing limbs.  Never think you
are alone with your problems.  There are many out there
that have it the same or even worse.  How about a baby.
They need to be taken care of in much of the same way
that we take care of Benny and Milo.  LOL of course
aside from having to go out and shovel them a path
so that they can go potty hehehe.  Nope,  the person
that sends their child outside in the snow to go potty
needs not to have a child,  but needs to have their
head examined LOL.  I just heard our landlords truck.
He must be out there with his snowplow.  I guess I’ll
go out and move the car so he can plow the rest of our
driveway.  I’m back.  I had to get in the passenger side
and reach to the driver side and roll the window down
so I could reach in and open the door.  I tried opening
it a little from the passenger side,  but the wind kept
blowing it shut LOL.  Boy in just that short of time
our car got flooded with snow hehehe.  After he got
done plowing our driveway and I got our car moved
back,  I had to go inside and get some paper towels
to wipe all of the snow off of everything in the car 🙂
Yep,  we’re getting that car door fixed next month
without a doubt.  Most of our strongest winds come
from the south and that’s the side that our house
faces and when the car is pulled in front ways is the
side that the driver side car door is facing.  Hehehe,
I know,  why don’t we back in?  I guess you could
say that it’s such a pain to have to back in,  but I’m
sure you’re saying to yourself now,  but Bill,  you’ve
gotta back out of your driveway don’t you?  Well,
the answer to that is,  I have no answer LOL.  So
that’s that hehehe.  Milo is in the kitchen barking
at Judy.  I asked Judy why he was barking at her and
she said “I don’t know.  I think he thinks I have treats
in the washing machine hehehe”.  Judy’s doing the
laundry.  We switch off taking turns doing the chores.
She told me it was her time to fix breakfast being
I have done it most of the time.  She said she might
make us pancakes tomorrow yummy yum yum :).
Yes,  God has blessed our home with the joy of life
as we journey through struggles together.  I now look
back on my life of long ago and remember the many
times that I failed to see the joy.  Yes I had some
bad days/years,  but I also had some good times
that I at that moment did not appreciate as much as
I should of.  Are you allowing the good times to be
nothing more than a memory and not truly seeing
what goodness God has put before you?  I know,
sometimes the good times are hard to see through
all the grey.  Take a step back from your problems
and look through the clouds and see what God may
have given you that you’re taken for granted.  God
is always sending blessings,  but often they are not
what we want,  but they’re what we need.  Look for
the blessings.  You might be surprised at what you
find.  Now, I believe it’s time for me to begin my
search 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 recollections
that I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I found a pretty good title and now after
checking I see that it’s one that I have not used
as of yet,  BUT used it shall be LOL.  Here goes.

More Than A Memory

Things we remember
from decades ago
might make the difference
between joy and woe.
More than a memory
timeframes are found
often as repeating
our lessons around.
Sometimes those struggles
that we remember
are lessons from God then
more than an ember.
A fragment of time that
might seem to glow
might be just a journey
that’s found to and fro.
More than a memory
yesterdays pages
might be the lessons
for our future ages.

Ok,  so there ya go.  It’s something that for some freakish
reason I found words to write about hehehe.  I guess you
could say,  I have had many times in my past that I now
look at as more than a memory.  They are things that live
within me as lessons I’ve learned and many of them were
freaken learned the hard way LOL.  I lived to tell about
them so that I can hopefully steer others away from them,
but there are many that are just like I was and still want
to learn the hard way,  of course they don’t think it will be
that way,  just I thought it wouldn’t be LOL.  SURPRISE!
Well Judy and the boys are in here now.  We finish our
breakfast a little bit ago and it was GOOOOOOOOOOD.
Judy’s a great cook.  Benny and Milo are now sleeping in
their beds.  I just heard the county snowplows go down the
road.  They stay busy during this time of year and they
do a great job keeping the roads drivable.  Of course one
would have to be crazy or really have a sense of urgency
to want to drive in this mess.  But the county guys do it
because it’s their job.  There have been times though that
even they could not see to do their job and waited for it
to clear up a bit.  Even if we have a power outage due to
ice and snow the county is out to fix it almost immediately.
Our landlord is still out there plowing the other driveways.
I’m glad that we haven’t got anywhere that we need to be
tomorrow :).  I might go out and play in the snow with
Benny and maybe even Milo if he wants to join us LOL.
I mean,  the high for tomorrow  is supposed to be only
9 F degrees 🙂   I’ve done worse hehehe.  We’ll have to
put their sweaters on them if they wanna come out and
play with me :).  Ok so I guess that’s about all I have
to ramble about and before I think of anything ELSE,
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 one of them a Valentines poems to
my beloved wife :).  Also I wrote once again 22 haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find one or two of either or both that you like.  Now
I believe it’s time for me to be searching for that not
so great at hiding off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend or what’s left of it and a
most joyful God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now,  where is that confounded
off switch hiding this time?  Ok,  so you’re getting a
little better at least you are this time around.  I almost
didn’t see ya hiding behind my flashlight and I might
not of seen ya if you hadn’t of accidently hit the on
switch LOL.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Lost and Found

Times we’ve headed
out to find
places of our
peace of mind
might of disclosed
lost and found
as we learned to
turn around.
Scenes remembered
decades past
that are better
shadows cast.
Lost and found then
shows so true
Jesus always
within you.
He might let you
do your style
while you’re searching
all the while,
but He never
turns away.
He is watching
every day.
Yet we need to
let Him in
finding Him then
as your friend.
Jesus can be
strength each day
when you’re lost
and need a way.
Then sweet Jesus
shows so true
lost and found
that lives in you.

Without The Snow

The winters mornings
would not be right
without the snow
so wintery white.
The mornings sunrise
might not show true
without the snow
within its view.
The scenic signs
without the snow
might just be then
a moments woe.
The winters mornings
scenes of time
without the snow
might seem divine,
but the reason’s
very clear
without the snow
it’s not sincere.
The winters mornings
bring a gaze
displayed as white
and coldest days
Way up here
in northern Maine
without the snow
would be insane,
for our winters
to and fro
are never found
without the snow.

Hands Held Tight

As years go by
and love grows old
two hands hold tight
as times unfold.
True love is found
as two walk on
hands held tight
from dusk to dawn.
The path might be
real rough to find
with two together
time to time,
but hands held tight
can make so strong
the hope for good
to come along.
Yet even bad times
day and night
can be much better
hands held tight.

Things We’ve Seen

Past to present
and in between
we might remember
things we’ve seen.
Things we’ve thought of
wished to do
and then one day
we followed through.
The things we’ve seen
might crash and burn
as choices made
each twist and turn.
So many pathways
are recognized
as a moment
not realized.
The lessons learned
from things we’ve seen
might be nightmares
or a dream.

Musical Winds

Notes in the clouds
with winds blowing through
become as a musical
that I can view.
Floating so gracefully
with winds blowing fine
up in the sky then
makes a design.
With musical winds
and flavors of styles
the clouds up above
go so many miles.
God’s the musician
with Hands keeping time
as the musical winds
reflect in my mind.
Songs of sweet beauty
that God’s love transcends
is found in the sky
with the musical winds.

A New Place In Time

Life is a journey
with footsteps we make
and many chances
that we also take.
A new place in time
is tomorrow to see
that with our footsteps
displays you and me.
We might make mistakes,
but lessons are learned
a new place in time
as then is discerned.
The minutes tick onwards
as time moves along
and now become moments
that might soon be gone.
A new place in time
might hold  echoes cost
as you make footprints
a journey across.

Find A Smile

Search within you
for a while
and you might then
find a smile.
The joy of laughter
from a time
that right now might
seem sublime.
Find a blessing
from a day
that you might of
let turn grey.
See the beauty
from the past
and find a smile
with shadows cast.
Lose your frowning
in the trash.
Find a smile now
from the ash.
Like the phoenix
rise today
and find a smile
then to display.
Let the sadness
fall from you.
and find a smile
that is so true.

This Room Of Time

My many words
of poems and more
this room of time
seems shore to shore.
My memories
all come alive
in this room
that poems arrive.
So many words
connect thereto
this room of time
with every view.
It seems my thoughts
become a road
with transitions
moments load.
The room of time
is what I share
as my thoughts
are self aware.
Remembering days
and nights gone by
this room of time
might ask me why.
Though my thinking
might confuse,
this room of time
is choice to choose.

The Whitest Snow

This winters day
with snow of white
displays a stage
within my sight.
The whitest snow
is found afar
within the field
beyond our car.
This snow of white
is fancy free
snowflakes falling
that I see.
The whitest snow
from here to there
becomes a sight
that none compare.
With every snowflake
that floats down
the whitest snow
is surely found.

My Lovely Valentine

My honey my love
my sweetest so fine
I thank Jesus for
my lovely valentine.
I thought I’d be lonely
with no one to share
but you are the one
that God gave through prayer.
You and I are now
with daily connections
my lovely valentine
that has no deceptions.
We found each other
2 thousand miles apart
and now we’re together
and sharing our heart.
We became much more than
a husband and wife,
for we have friendship
that’s lasting for life.
Yes you my sweet Judy
will always be mine
that I will treasure
as my lovely valentine.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

for Feb 14,  2015

The choices we make
become a journey through time
with some good and bad.

Often our lessons
are as bridges that we’ve burned
acting too rashly.

Perceptive eyesight
will see the storms awaiting
that many don’t see.

Wrongful discretions
might cause ones to walk right by
the best that could be.

If life throws lemons
then it might be your choices
and not the other.

Look before stepping
on the roadway of living
or you might stumble.

Branches in the snow
might display themselves as spring
that awaits to bloom.

Life is a journey
that so many seek blindly
without first asking.

The minds of many
often think they are better
when they’re mistaken.

As seasons move on
you might find you are missing
one that you hated.

Living in the past
makes it hard to live today,
for it holds you back.

Abusing ones trust
could become as dynamite
that one day explodes.

Walking in a path
might get you where you’re going
or it might lose you.

Long awaited things
are often not what we thought
and become regrets.

Seen  through many eyes
some might think they do no wrong,
but yet be troubled.

When heartbeats unite
they become stronger heartbeats
if they are with love.

Ill fitting journeys
might become as your folly,
for they are not yours.

Ones daily gossip
could be found in the boredom
of their own lifestyle.

Looking out windows
leaves so much right behind you
that you might of missed.

Pop top soda cans
give excitement in a sip
that you have tasted.

No is said often
when yes might of worked better
maybe not always.

A ship that’s sinking
sends an urgent SOS
like us unto God.

Back Up The Steps


Hello my friends

I’m back with more jabbering hehehehe.  I hope you have
been well or at least as well as possible 🙂  Judy and I have
been enjoying the snow or at least the pictures of it LOL.
It is beautiful,  but rather cold.  I do though go outside and
play with the boys from time to time.  Yet,  most times it’s
just Benny and me.  Milo don’t like to be outside for long.
It doesn’t matter what the weather is like.  He’s strictly
an inside dog.  I can maybe every once in a while get him
to stay out and play a bit.  He’s back to his old ornery self.
Right now him and Benny are lying in the floor right beside
and behind me in their doggy beds.  They are something else!
It seems that when Judy is gone,  they know better than
to try my patience hehehe.  They know that Judy will take
up for them if she’s here.  She’s their mom :).  These boys
are just like kids.  Anyways,  on to another topic,  hopefully.
Right now it’s 4 F degrees.  The high for today was around
5 F degrees LOL.  By Monday morning it’s supposed to be
-5 F degrees which is 5 below zero.  That’s not too awful
bad.  We had about 30 below just a week or so ago hehehe.
We still haven’t gotten our car door fixed.  When Milo got
sick his health was more important than the door.  Thank
God and the vet Milo is feeling much better.  We got a
little more snow last week,  like we really needed it LOL.
I called DOC’s oil Thursday morning and bought us some
more heating oil and then I had to get outside and dig a
path to our oil tank so he could get to it hehehe.  That
was a chore and a half.  About 3 or 4 feet of snow was
blocking the way,  so I began shoveling.  The delivery
guy thanked me.  He said,  you would not believe how
many people just leave it for him to trudge through LOL.
I told him I kind of knew, that’s why I did it for him :).
Anyways,  if you are getting this in stationery format
you’ll see the trench/path I dug to the oil tank with him
standing in it LOL.  Yeppers,  life up this ways is rather
interesting.  The scenery up here is fabulous.  I know,
I swore I would never use that word (fabulous),  but it’s
the only way I can describe the view.  Judy and I will
often take out on a picture taking drive,  but most of
the time I am taking pictures any time we go anywhere.
Once in a great while I’ll head out on my own to take
some pictures,  but then I’ve gotta try to take pictures
while driving.  Of course on those occasions I am most
times driving down back roads and just pointing and
shooting.  Every once in a while I will stop and get out
of the car and walk around to take pictures.  But most
of the time Judy is driving while I’m taking pictures :).
Life as a photographer hehehe.  I love to take pictures
of God’s beauty.  It’s all around us.  All we need to do
is take the time to look.  The boys are still sound asleep.
They are such good little boys.  I’ll fix them some food
in a bit,  but I gave them some treats a little while ago
and that seems to have tided them over.  Milo is lightly
snoring hehehe.  Oh yea,  the day after we had  our oil
delivery,  our landlord plowed our drive.  He said I should
of hollered.  I told him,  I didn’t know he had his snow
plow fixed LOL.  Oh well,  it got done.  Our driveway
was getting rather tiny hehehe.  He plowed it out to
where we have more room now to park our car hehehe.
Yep,  just another day gone by.  I just got a call from
my good friend Oscar Rogers in Texas.  He said he
has been keeping tabs on the weather up here and
was wondering if we were snowed in.  It was great to
here from Oscar.  He’s one of my friends from the
Wills Point Chronicle.  I used to work there with him
and his brother Julius.  Those were the good old days.
That’s where I got my love for photography. I always
love to hear from my friends.  It does get lonesome up
here being so far away from my family and friends,
but I have family up here and a few friends and that
makes it not so bad.  I’ve always been a people person.
I got that from my dad I guess hehehe.  Both he and
I knew no strangers LOL.  I did have some times in
school that I was sort of judged wrongly and people
didn’t take the time to get to know me,  but I guess
that’s the way it was for many huh LOL.  There’s a lot
of my past that I miss,  but there’s a lot that I could’ve
lived without LOL.  Ain’t that life hehehe!  Yeppers,
I do miss the days of jamming with my friends.  I wish
I had someone up here that I could jam with.  It gets
rather old playing my conga drums by myself.  That’s
why I spend a lot of my time taking pictures hehehe.  So,
now ya know :).  It’s one of my many ways of dealing
with life and I do love the scenery up here.  Judy and
I usually try to plan out a drive a few times a year so
we can find some new scenery to take pictures of 🙂
Benny and Milo will often get their pictures taken if
we catch them being silly hehehe.  Ok,  so what else is
there to ramble about?  It might snow a little tonight,
but not too much.  LOL,  it’s not like we need anymore
snow ya know hehehe.  Yeppers,  we have plenty,  but
if it wants to snow,  then getter done 🙂  I’m used to it.
The only thing I hate is when it turns into sheets of ice.
Then,  I would rather it go away LOL.  Our landlord
is still nursing a broken ankle from slipping on his
front steps a couple of weeks ago LOL.  I think he
said he gets the brace off some time this week and
he’ll be happy about that.  So far all I’ve done on the
ice is bust my arm and back side LOL.  No broken
bones YET hehehe.  Ya can never tell when the steps
have ice on them.  I always try to be careful,  but the
last time I made the mistake of walking out with my
house shoes on, that have NO TREAD what so ever
and the first step I took was the pitfall.  I slid to the
bottom of the steps and I couldn’t get any traction
to get back up the steps :).  I had to pull myself back
up using the hand rails and then reach in the door
to pull myself in.  Judy was there,  but she couldn’t
help me because I weigh 233 lbs hehehe.  Just a tad
more than she can pull :).  Yep,  I do not wear my
house shoes outside anymore LOL.  I will slip on
my out door shoes first :).  Yes,  life up here is a
different world from what I grew up in.  I’ve found
a new home up here.  Texas will always be my
home state,  but I have adopted Maine as my 2nd.
It is now my home and has been for over 7 years.
God has been good to us and protected us from the
things that we cannot handle ourselves.  He’s given
us 2 good little boys/dogs and they have brought
joy to our home.  I have a family up here that I love
with all my heart.  Yet,  I do wish that I could go and
see my daughter and granddaughter in Texas.  My
granddaughter Sami is in Scottish Rite Hospital
and I wish I could be there for her,  but it’s not that
easy.  All I can do is pray for her and send her my
love.  I love you Sami.  Stay strong.  You too Jamye.
I love you both tons.  Thank You God for giving me
a way to keep in touch with my family and friends
down south.  I do know that in the olden days it
was not that easy.  There was no internet and much
of what we know now was just a dream.  Thank You
God for giving mankind the abilities that we have.
I am also grateful for my many abilities.  Now,
I believe it’s time for me to be taking my little
venture back through all that I have 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 found a decent title and after checking
I see that it has not be used as of yet,  but used
it shall be hehehe.  Here goes

Back Up The Steps

As steps are made
in the walk of life
we might find steps
that are filled with strife.
Those times we fall
we need to climb
back up the steps
from time to time.
Don’t let the problems
footsteps make
become the rivers
to fill life’s lake.
Seek for some better
steps which to go
seeking for other
that’s not filled with woe.
So if you fall down
with troublesome views
get back up the steps
with a new pair of shoes.

Ok,  so if you don’t understand the poem,  I’m sorry.
LOL I can’t always write what everybody understands.
Like I have ever done that hehehe!  Anyways,  Milo
just knocked on the door to tell me he needs to go out
and potty.  I let him out and of course Benny had to go
out with him,  if for no other reason but to play in the
snow LOL.  I just let Milo back in,  but gotta wait till
Benny is done playing.  OK,  now they are both back
inside.  You would think that Benny wouldn’t want to
go outside when it’s 3 F degrees,  but he don’t care 🙂
They both have a lot of hair to insulate them,  plus we
often have them suited in their sweaters,  but not now.
They’re both back in the their beds lying head to head
right beside and behind me LOL.  Milo wasn’t  going
to come back in here until Benny came back in.  They
truly love one another hehehe.  So,  what else is there
to talk about?  Hmm,  I can’t think of anything else to
tell ya,  so I reckon it’s time for me to be telling you
what I tell you every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  I wrote 10 more
poems with one of them being sort of Christmassy 🙂
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there.  Yes,  I wrote them all today.  Yesterday
Judy and I were over visiting with her daughter and
our grandsons.  We had a great visit,  but had to make
it short,  being we had to leave Benny and Milo at
home.  The owner of their house does not like dogs.
Of course Mandy and Helena have 2 dogs, but that
is the limit.  Anyways,  like I said,  we had a great
visit and we took a few pictures which will also be in
the stationery.  I hope and pray that you have found
a poem or haiku or both that you like and also my
rambling gave you a smile.  I guess it’s time for me
to be searching for that not so elusive off switch, but
not before I wish you a most wonderful God filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now.  where is that dad burned off switch hiding
this time?  Oh for crying out loud,  could at least
act like you’re trying to hide?  Last week was bad,
hiding on my salt shaker,  but this week.  Hiding
behind my respirator.  You hid there once before
and should of known that it was a terrible hiding
place LOL.  I have asthma dude and let’s just
say,  it’s freaken sitting right in front of me LOL.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

When Eyes See Deep

Looking vastly
within each sight
so many find
what’s not so right.
Looking deeply
there and to
life can become
a shattered view.
Let your vision
see what’s there
not so deep,
but love and care.
Sometimes people
will only show
there own deepest
to ones they know.
Then as minutes
moments sweep
you’ll know better
when eyes see deep.

Blinding Sights

Snow that billows
shining white
reflects the sun
and all its light.
Then while looking
out the door
I then find
a bright eye sore.
Blinding lights
reflecting true
making it hard
to see the view.
I find sunshades
to put on
when the day
begins at dawn.
Then my eyesight
sees delights
far beyond
the blinding sights.

The Question Of Time

As some lifestyles
might become unstable
the question of time
becomes are we able.
Patterns are broken
some good and some bad
the question of time
makes so many mad.
Many will ponder
the times long ago
while they’re forgetting
the times filled with woe.
Often ones thinking
will only see color
prejudice viewpoints
not seeing a brother.
The question of time
becomes dynamite
only seeing wrong ways
and not seeing right.

Momentous pathways
that turn out darkened
often have lessons
found from disheartened.
Often we’ll stumble
and fall to the ground
finding disheartened
with thens leap and bound.
Yet they’re the lessons
that come from those days
that are remembered
to further our gaze.
Disheartened pathways
that life might expose
could be the blessings
for your future rose.
Sometimes the bad times
teach us the best
found from disheartened
might be as God’s test.
Teaching us truly
the ways we’re to go
found from disheartened
what we need to know.

Heaven’s Snowflakes

White fluffy snowflakes
fall from the sky
coming from Heaven
way up so high.
Sweet Heaven’s Snowflakes
as colorful shine
come down as peaceful
to make a design.
Some found as angels
and some as snowmen
found in the places
where people have been.
Created by Lord God
and painted with love
sweet Heaven’s snowflakes
fall down from above.
The seasonal flurries
of snowflakes of time
are with the make up
of winter divine.
Many though hate it
when snow’s falling down
and landing billowy
there on the ground.
Yet it is better
to accept what is true
and enjoy Heaven’s snowflakes
God gives me and you.

Too Many Dreams

Windows of dreamland
might become cluttered
when we are wanting things
always well buttered.
Too many dreams
with choices as lakes
might become dreams
with a lot of Earthquakes.
Keep your dreams simple
and don’t overload
or you might find them
with times that explode.
Dreaming too many
the things not so true
might become sadness
that’s living in you.
It’s OK to dream of
some wonderful things,
but do not expect them
to live as your dreams.
Sometimes a dream will
help you along
to find you smile
when things have gone wrong.
Yet too many dreams
in a fantasy world
might then become
as Hell that’s unfurled.

Thinking of Christmas Again

With snowflakes found falling
on the ground thereunto
I find I’m thinking
of a Christmassy view.
Thinking once again
of those wonderful sights
snowflakes a falling
and twinkling lights.
Christmas found moments
that live within me
are the thoughts that I’m thinking
I wish I could see.
Thinking of Christmas again
as time moves on
while December moments
are never really gone.
Peace found within me
brings a heartfelt amen
while I am thinking
of Christmas again.

Yesterdays Journey

Now becomes past
as it moves along
yesterdays journey
then becomes gone.
Time is a porthole
that we cannot see,
until it is found
in our history.
Sometimes the journey
shows us a clue,
but we’re still blinded
from what that’s true.
Often we will think
that we know what’s right
but it’s not really clear
until it’s in sight.
The lessons from wrong
are yesterdays journey
that might end up with
us on a gurney.

A Sight Unseen

A timeless dream
a moments joy
a sight unseen
some hearts deploy.
A flavors taste
a minute found
a sight unseen
goes round and round.
A starry night
a bright lit moon
a sight unseen
comes into tune.
A painted sky
a cloud of white
a sight unseen
is day and night.
A winters dream
a story told
a sight unseen
might then unfold.

An Ice Covered Pond

The cold of winters
ice and snow
is found inside
the times we know.
An ice covered pond
with snow on top
is found each day
a little a lot.
An ice covered sight
with water down under
brings me the thoughts
of obvious wonder.
Thinking of thickness
and can it hold me
all of my weight
or should I not see.
An ice covered pond
holds no sign to say
how thick it is
this wintery day.
So I am thinking
that I should move on
and just enjoy it
an ice covered pond.

With just a second
you can change many choices
and change the outcome.

Lessons from snowflakes
are found as many snowbanks
joined by directions.

As we judge others
our judgment is being done
by Lord God above.

Believing in love
brings the chance for love alive,
but it needs some faith.

Allowing sadness
to be your only journey
could make you lonely.

A smile found each day
can brighten up others lives
by just a mere glance.

When time is at peace
let wars of other moments
find some peace also.

As shadows are made
the story behind them grows
becoming the scenes.

The simple mans life
brings alive many chances
from the smallest things.

A painted picture
is a story on canvass
that might be hidden.

Seeking for stardom
could find you miserable
just wanting some peace.

The echo of spring
is resolved in winters snow
with flowers sleeping.

The beginning of time
is a moment that’s confused
as some seek science.

Beneath ones thinking
could be indecisive thoughts
that really don’t know.

Changing your insight
needs you to first understand
what that you’re changing.

Gossiping people
might find themselves as topic,
for it’s reflected.

Brainstorming moments
could become a mere headache
that came from the thoughts.

Losing perception
of the footsteps that you make
could lead ones astray.

Without tomorrow
our motivation is gone
and we might stagnate.

Clinging to lost ships
will only show bumpy seas
headed to nowhere.

When fear’s abundant
use it to help you to grow
and not hinder you.

A clear sky of blue
shows the color of passion
painted by God’s Hand.

Sort Of Distracting


Hello my friends

It’s been a cold and snowy week this passed week.  First off
with some good news,  my doctor called last week and he said
he has some good news.  They got the test results back and it
turned out that the tumor was benign,  but he told me that he
didn’t think he got it all and asked me if I wanted him to set up
a visit to a surgeon to remove the rest of it.  I said I wasn’t sure,
so he said I can think on it and let him know what I would like
him to do at my next doctors visit.  I though have decided to
go ahead and have him set it up for a surgeon to check and
remove the rest of the tumor.  Now onto another page of my
journal.  Milo got really sick last week. He was really weak.
He wouldn’t eat and he had been drinking more water than
normal so we took him to the vet Friday and he had a 105
temperature and his blood sugar was 47 which both of them
should be close to what ours would be.  The vet gave him
some shots and some medicine for us to give him.  She said
it’s possible he’s diabetic,  but the reason for his blood sugar
being so low now might be that he hasn’t eaten.  So we’ve
been giving him his medicine and all and he has begun to eat
a little bit.  He even woke up when I fixed Judy and I some
breakfast and a some extra bacon and sausage for him and
Benny.  When Milo got a whiff of it he got up and began
barking at Judy saying in his words,   that smells good,  I
want some hehehe.  Anyways,  he seems to be feeling a
little better thank God.  We don’t bounce back after having
a 105 fever so why should we expect him to.  I went to
lie down for a bit before I began writing and I felt some
eyes looking at me and Milo had his paws up on the side
of the bed looking at me saying he wanted to lay with
me,  so I got up and and went and picked him up and put
him in bed with me and covered him up real good with
a doggy blanket and that is where he is now hehehehe.
We’ve had tons of snow to come our way and it looks
like we have some more to come beginning tomorrow
afternoon.  I got dog tired of shoveling snow yesterday.
I had to keep the steps shoveled and a path for the
boys to go out and go potty and it seemed the snow
was falling faster than I could shovel it hehehe.  I had
to re shovel 4 or 5 times before the snowing lightened
up a bit.  We were sure glad that we took Milo to the
vet Friday,  because it would of been rather difficult
to do Saturday LOL.  Our driveway has been plowed
since all of that and Judy was able to get out to go
and take care of her mother.  I went out and brushed
the snow off of the car and got it warmed up before
she left and I took a trip down to Cameron.s Market
to get me some Mountain Dews.  I only had 3 left.
Judy headed out shortly after I showed her all of
the pictures I took of my drive to the market and
back.  Hehehe I had the camera set on the dash and
just snapped pictures hoping to get a few good shots,
but I did stop from time to time to take a few pictures.
Anyways,  the pictures came out pretty good.  She
could see how bad the roads were.  I told her that it’s
drivable,  but to not go much faster than 35 MPH
and I asked her to call me when she gets there 🙂
She called me and said the roads on route 1 were
better than our road and she made it OK.  That was
a relief.  I was worried,  but then we have seen
much worse roads and had no trouble with a little
caution.  Benny just strolled in here to say hello
and now he’s lying in a doggy bed right beside me.
Milo is still sound asleep on our bed with a doggy
blanket on him 🙂  We love these boys and treat
them like our children.  Judy and I gave Milo his
medicine before she left.  It takes one to hold
him and one (ME) to open up his mouth so that
she can get the medicine in and then me to hold
his jaw shut to make him swallow it,  because if
I don’t do that,  the pills get spit out and it gets
nasty after that LOL.  We mix his pills in with
some of their dog food,  but I think he can sense
that something ain’t quite right hehehe.  Anyways,
he gets his pills and they seem to be working.
One is for diarrhea and the other’s an antibiotic
to help with his fever and all.  Benny seems to be
able to tell that something is wrong with Milo,
but he just can’t put his finger/paw on it.  The
weather is getting colder.  It’s 7 F degrees right
now at 5:15 PM and supposed to get down to
minus –17 F degrees by morning.  The high for
Monday is supposed to be around 3 F degrees
and we’re expecting about a foot more of this
white stuff tomorrow as well beginning in the
evening.  Yeppers,  more snow and from the
looks of my weather program it might clear up
Tuesday to only begin snowing agin Wednesday
and then on into the weekend.  I was thinking
that we might get a light winter this year,  but
nope.  It’s putting its best foot forward hehehe.
Me and Benny have been making our trips out
to the mailbox and back of course aside from
yesterday when the snow was too deep for him
to follow me hehehe.  He followed as far as he
could,  but then waited for me to come back
and carry him back through the deep stuff that
he had managed to maneuver through hehehe.
The driveway has been plowed since then,  so
he won’t have any trouble going with me to the
mailbox tomorrow,  but after that,  we shall
see hehehe.  Milo is going back to the vet
tomorrow so she can check to see how he’s
coming along.  Keep the little boy in your
prayers.  I can tell that Benny misses his big
brother.  They like to play chase through the
house.  Hopefully,  Milo will be back to his
old ornery self soon.  Well the temperature has
dropped a few degrees.  Now it’s 3 F degrees
at 5:30 PM hehehe.  Yep,  it’s getting colder.
The thermometer is getting a workout tonight.
I think I’ll fix the boys some bacon in a little
bit.  I’m sure that Milo will enjoy it :).  That’ll
wake him up with just the smell of it while I’m
frying it hehehe.  I’m sure Benny will wake
up hehehe.  Benny is usually in the kitchen
under foot when I’m cooking anything hehehe.
He usually ends up parking himself over in
the next room where he can watch and wait to
see if he gets anything or if I drop something
on the floor that he can clean up hehehe.  Our
little vacuum cleaner with teeth LOL.  Thank
You God for keeping Your Mighty Hands over
our home protecting us and please heal Milo
and give him a few more years with our family.
Hehehe Benny is in the living room barking at
the snowplow.  It’s sort of distracting,  but I’ll
manage hehehe.  I just went and checked on Milo
and he was still sound asleep.  I had to wake him
to make sure he was OK.  LOL ain’t I mean :)!
He woke up and looked at me as if to say, (what
do you want,  I’m sleeping here) hehehe.  He’s
gone back to sleep now after I tucked him in
good.  Well it’s 1 F degree at 6 PM and I think
it’s time for me to begin my searching 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 a found a good title back just a few lines
or so hehehe and now after checking I see that
it has not be used as of yet,  but used it shall be
today yes,  as Yoda says LOL.  Here goes.

Sort Of Distracting

Winds of time blowing
on times window sill
might be distractions
with joy to fulfill.
Sort of but not quite
distracting the day
some things become as
a wonderful way.
Sort of distracting
some things might be seen
that are the best for
filling a dream.
Don’t let distractions to
just become pain.
Find all the blessings
distractions can gain.
Often distractions
are needed as tools
to make us look up
from dismal life’s pools.
Look passed the anger
distractions can make
and see the goodness
in joyful awake.

Okie dokie,  there ya go.  I know it might seem a bit
silly to ya,  but hey,  that’s what I came up with using
that title.  You see if you can do it better hehehe.  So,
what have I forgotten to tell you that is actually worth
saying?   Hmm,  I can’t think of anything.  It’s getting
colder outside by the minute which means,  the boys
will have to make their potty breaks rather swift and
Benny won’t be able to stay out and play in the snow
as he loves to do.  Milo has been going down to the
bottom step and doing his thing which means we have
to watch where we step until I can get out to clean
it up.  But I’m not gonna punish him.  He’s sick and
I don’t want him outside no longer than he has to be.
But,  when he gets well and it warms up a bit,  that
will stop hehehe.  He will go elsewhere to potty LOL.
Can ya tell that we love these boys hehehehehehe?
There’s not much else I have to tell you other than
what I tell you every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems
with one of them being sort of Christmassy.  I also
wrote once again 22 more haiku for all of my haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you can find one or two of
either or both that you like.  Now,  I believe it’s time
for me to be searching for that not so elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a most wonderful
God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now where is that cantankerous switch
hiding at this time?  Oh for Heaven’s sake,  could
ya at least put forth a little effort in finding a spot
to hide?  Standing up acting like you’re thrilled to
be on Mount Everest atop of my salt shaker is
not what I call hiding.  Try harder next time will ya.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

The Signs of Times

The things we see
found far and wide
the signs of times
are then applied.
Greatest journeys
our times display
the signs of times
are day to day.
Scenes as magic
with whispering winds
the signs of times
show what transcends.
Sometimes viewpoints
that we’re seeing
the signs of times
seem as repeating.
Journeys threshold
gathers its speed
the signs of times
is then what we read.

Painted White

A snowy day
as winds unite
becomes a scene
that’s painted white.
Snowflakes falling
blowing too
the painted white
becomes my view.
Every snowflake
that falls down
paints each scene
that’s all around.
Out my window
I can see
painted white
the snows degree.
Wonderful scenes
within my sight
are as pictures
painted white.

Past And Present

Now and then
what comes ahead
is just found
as what we dread.
Past and present
will collide
with the truth
that many hide.
Often moments
thought as gone
will be found
another dawn.
Past and present
then show true
the things we might
not want to view.
Doors will open
to our lifestyles
past and present.
So let lessons
become learned
times remembered
we’ve discerned.

Wishing Snow

A winter white morning
with snow given free
my wishes become as
a billowy sea.
Oceans of snowflakes
all gathered around
building a story
upon the cold ground.
Then as the snowflakes
continue to grow
I begin dreaming of
white wishing snow.
A wishing well sight
that falls from the sky
finds me just wishing
that I could fly high.
In the wishing snow
that falls every day
I can imagine
I’m drifting away.

Today’s Equation

With hands of time
the stage is set
today’s equation
ones forget.
So many people
will lose sight
what’s today
and what’s tonight.
Today’s equation
brings to view
counting moments
me and you.
Within the pages
books of time
today’s equation
shows a sign.
Today meets time
as devastation
when we’ve lost
today’s equation.
Ones united
black and white
with some others
in our sight.
Today’s equation
needs be found
with us each
on common ground.

As Now Begins

Each day that’s done
leaves things to see
as now begins
our history.
Each word we say
and action made
as now begins
there’s truth displayed.
The stories told
as false or true
as now begins
it displays you.
Every moment
that we ignore
as now begins
it shows some more.
It’s perception
of our own sins
that learns lessons
as now begins.

December’s Delight

I now remember
December’s delight
Christmastimes glory
found day and night.
Scenes all a blinking
a wonderful hue
Christmas trees decked out
for passers to view.
New England snowflakes
landing in place
December’s delight
with Christmastimes grace.
Every single house
with lights lit up bright
shows me the blessings
December’s delight.
Christmastime scenery
also is heard
songs on the radio
word after word.
Then as the morning
of Christmas is found
December’s delight is
with sight and sound.
Joyful the blessings
that Decembers bring
December’s delight
is as angels sing.

Looks Of Love

Ones with emptiness
only will find
looks of love
with no peace of mind.
Seen just as holes
with nothing within
some looks of love
are only of sin.
Let God help
your daily quest
for looks of love
the very best.
God will open
doors up wide
and then let
true love inside.
The looks of love
will find their mark
if they’re true
and not so dark.
Let God’s blessings
live in you
and looks of love
will find you true.

As Rivers Flow

Snow covered rivers
with ice under thick
as rivers flow
they might be so quick.
Ice waters rushing
under the view
as rivers flow
the way that they do.
Yet found up topside
the only thing found
is maybe white snow
that looks like the ground.
But if you’re careless
and don’t know how thick
the ice could then break
and swallow you quick.
Then you’ll be seen
beneath ice and snow
trying to swim then
as rivers flow.

Blindly Searching

Footsteps walking
making prints
blindly searching
winters scents.
Snow is blinding
in sunlight
making searching
not so bright.
Blindly searching
needs to find
searched another
time to time.
Learning not to
head out fast
searching for
a shadows cast
might become
your best survival
later found with
clear arrival.

for Jan 31,  2015

When you’re with worry
many doubts will come alive
causing  you to grieve.

Yesterdays flourish
as memories come alive
with views found today.

Without a moment
time cannot be completed
for each second counts.

The snowflakes falling
become as many patterns
painted here and there.

Now is a timeframe
that many will overlook
because they’re asleep.

Leaving a footprint
in the places that you go
lets others follow.

Many walk away
from a troubled ones lifestyle,
because they’re judgmental.

When time brings troubles
let God help you find answers
while living on faith.

Links to tomorrow
began long before today,
for our past connects.

Doorways to windows
might disclose some deception
hidden in the cracks.

Beyond what we see
is the sight that gets passed by,
because we are blind.

January storms
are often joined with some snow
and cold winds blowing.

Doors that aren’t closed tight
will tend to swing in the breeze
and even blow off.

Life can be laughter
found at any avenue
but not always good.

A glimmer of love
can be found in someone’s hatred,
for it stems from it.

Winters survival
comes as seasonal pathways
that soon will pass on.

Judgmental people
often see themselves as good
when they’re no better.

A lonely person
might have some trusting issues
that stems from their past.

Morning shows winter
as some snow painted hillsides
with glistening hues.

Some get excitement
from death defying journeys
that could bring them death.

A glimmer of time
displays stories remembered
that make us alive.

As four paws walk on
they leave a few distinctions
of what all they did.
