As The Seasons


Hello my friends

It’s been a fairly decent week these passed
few days. Rocky is finally starting to do his
stuff outside like a good boy. Though we’ve
been keeping him under constant watch so
to see when he needs to go out. We’ve been
putting him in his crate at night and letting
him out in the morning and he heads for the
front door with Benny because he’s gotta go
potty. Hopefully he will have it mastered by
winter hehehe. Hopefully before, for his own
sake LOL. Although he has been good the
passed few days. He seems to be catching
on. We’ve heard that Shih tzus are one of
the hardest dogs to teach which also falls in
the category of potty training hehehe. So
it’s normal for his breed to be a little harder
to train than others. It doesn’t stop us from
getting tired of cleaning up his mess though.
LOL, but as I said, it looks like he’s slowly
but surely catching on. Ok, so what else is
there to yammer about hehehe? Judy has
gone with her sisters to visit their brother
Ricky up north of us in a nursing home.
The boys are outside right now and reason
being is that they seem to want me to play
with them at the most inappropriate times,
such as like now when I’m trying to write.
I’ll let them in when I’m done hehehe. Last
week they were both in ornery moods and
wanting my undivided attention when I was
in the middle of my journal LOL. I’d write
a bit and then feel paws upon my arm as
one or the other would jump up to say hi.
Gotta love them boys hehehe. Rocky is
at the back door and every time he sees
me heading in the direction of the front
door or thereabouts such as the restroom
he makes a mad dash for the front door.
Then when he sees that I didn’t come to
the front door he runs quickly to the back
door to watch for me hehehe. He is so
silly! It turned out to be a beautiful day
today. It’s 75 F degree right now at 5;30
PM and that’s supposed to be the high for
today. It’s supposed to be a tad warmer
tomorrow. No telling what tomorrow
will bring though LOL. Another day to
celebrate life. These 2 boys bring us joy
each day. Judy should be home soon.
She left with her sisters at noon and it’s
6:30 now. The temperature has gone
down a few degrees and that’s great 🙂
Life in the fast lane LOL. Nope it ain’t
too fast here at the Pearce’s Place LOL.
I’ve taken a few pictures this passed
week. I’ll put a few in the stationery
as I do every week. I hope you like a
few of them. As the seasons change I’ll
have a lot more to take pictures of 🙂
I’ve been going and checking on the
boys from time to time and they’re OK.
Rocky still heads for the front door
every time he sees me hehehe. I’ll let
them in after I have gotten done with
the hardest part of the journal and that
is the poem. Judy has been real busy
writing her book. I’ve edited 6 chapters
and tons more to go. She helps me edit
my poems and all. Just reading them
aloud to her helps a ton. So far, what
I’ve read of her book is GREAT. She
has quite an imagination. Unless you
didn’t know, she’s writing a scifi novel.
Maybe one day it will be made into a
movie. You never know 🙂 I thank
God for the blessings that He’s given
us as each day comes to shine. Don’t
ever think that God is not listening,
because He is. He’s always waiting
for us to get out of ourselves and let
Him to work through us. Let God to
shine in your life. Of course you will
make mistakes, but God will use them
to make good to spawn. Learn from
your mistakes. Don’t let the mistakes
to pull you down. Let God show you
how they can pick you up and make
you stronger. Now I believe it’s time
for me to be taking a little visit 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 had to stop a moment and
let the boys in. I could tell that they
were quite ready to come back inside,
but I may have made a mistake LOL.
Rocky is now behind me playing with
the squeaky toys hehehe. Oh well,
I believe I found a good title just a
little ways back near the middle of
my rambling. Sheesh Rocky hehehe!
Could ya give it a break for a little
bit. That squeaky squeak makes it
hard to think. Anyways, here goes.

As The Seasons

Each new morning
brings a shine
from the bright sun
time to time.
As the seasons
change their flow,
soon comes Autumn
then white snow.
Now is summer
heat discerned,
some found swimming,
some sunburned.
As the seasons
find their place
many find a
smiling face.
With God’s blessings
found so bright
seasons change
each day and night.
As the seasons
place their name
each is with its
note to fame.
Spring from winter
gives its flow
using winters
melting snow.
Then comes summer
counted true
with ones seeking
more to do.
Fall then beckons
painted leaves
that soon fall
from all the trees.
Then at last
dear winter finds
wondrous blessings
Christmas time.

I hope you enjoyed the poem and it made
you smile. I also hope you enjoyed all of
my rambling 🙂 Now I need to ask you to
give special prayer for my granddaughter
Sami. She is back in the hospital with a
kidney infection. It seems she has been
in the hospital more than out of it. The
poor little girl has been through Hell with
her Spina Bifida. Please say a prayer for
her. I know God is in control, but prayer
does wonders. Gramps loves you Sami 🙂
So, that is all that I can think of to tell
you aside from the fact that Rocky is in
overdrive and keeps nudging me with his
nose and pawing at me LOL. Yes, he’s
still playing with the squeaking dog toys.
He just jumped and put his paws on my
computer desk as if to say HELLO 🙂
Finally, he’s eating his food and leaving
me alone for a bit hehehe. Benny is in
his doggy bed ignoring Rocky as best
that he can LOL. If he bothers him too
much, I’ll hear a little muffled grrrrrr.
LOL, they love each other more than
we could ever have dreamed. We were
afraid that Benny would not be able
to move on from Milo, but he did. We
can tell from time to time that he still
thinks of him when we accidentally call
Rocky Milo. Yes, we still think of our
old boy Milo. He will always be a part
of our lives. His ashes are sat atop of
our TV in the living room. But as life
goes on, we shall also. Now I believe
it’s time for me to be telling you what
I tell you almost every week and that
is, I wrote some more poems with 1
of them being sort of Christmassy 🙂
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there or should
I say 23, being I accidentally wrote
1 extra hehehe. So sue me hehehe!
OK, with that said I reckon 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 whatever’s left of it and a blessings
filled week. Remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. Now, where’s
that off switch hiding this week????
Oh for the love of ice cream, could
you at least put a little bit of effort
in your hiding places LOL. Trying to
hide behind Rocky will never work
being he never stops moving hehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Tomorrow (August 31) is my birthday
Hello no friend of mine,
you have turned me 59! LOL.
Turned, sounds like I went bad huh 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22+1 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Right Now And Beyond

With minutes and hours
are moments to find
right now and beyond
found on our mind.
Often our thinking will
be found obscured
throughout a turnstile
of word after word.
Right now and beyond
can be clearly seen
sometimes as portions
of a nightmare or dream.
Using all the passed days
and those then to come
the best that we can then
will shine a great sun.
For not procrastinating
and doing what we can
right now and beyond
will help us to stand.

Devices Of Style

Thinking they’re better
so many perceive
that they are blessed with
times to achieve.
Through their devices
of style so to say
many will carry on
in their thinking way.
The style of life
with many devices
leads ones astray
with overpaid prices.
Often ones wantings
are just but a show
the devices of style
to fill their ego.
Don’t let your wantings
to become so large
that devices of style
are fully in charge.

An Angel’s Wings

Someone you see
might have in place
an angel’s wings
upon their face.
Their love and joy
will seem to shine
as the Heavens
great design.
An angel’s wings
might not be seen
as they’re here
with God’s esteem.
Those as angels
might appear
as they’re just
someone sincere.
Maybe even
a homeless man
with angels wings
and wondrous plan.
So the story’s
plain to see
an angel could be
you or me.
Unknowingly shining
what God agleams
some are with
an angel’s wings.

A Santafied Dream

A sweet winters morning
awoken from sleep
is filled with the wonders
that ones wish to keep.
A Santafied dream
from deep in the night
displaying magic
of Santa in flight.
A Santafied dream
of a white snowy place
painted with wonders
upon a child’s face.
This was a magical
time I remember
a Santafied dream
amidst cold December.
So very long ago
as I fell fast asleep
a Santafied dream
displayed oh so deep.
A minute a moment
of sweet starry skies
a Santafied dream
came alive in my eyes.
Yet now much older
I still can recall
a Santafied dream
the best over all.

Within The Looking Stone

On a deep river’s bottom
holds such a stone.
One that’s all shiny
and sat all alone.
It holds great mysteries
deep in its mold
making some stories
to now be foretold.
Within the looking stone
time has stood still
as it fills pages
of words to fulfill.
It has such a shimmer
that only few see,
for it is well hidden
in a river so free.
It displays times
that it has gone through
with chips here and there
that make greater its view.
The words are well written
in oh such a tone
that only a few see it
within the looking stone.

Limits Of Self

Found in a hurry
ones worry so much
about this and that
a bit out of touch.
The limits of self
are often not seen,
for oh so many
just live in a dream.
Then with a crashing
comes reality
the limits of self
for them then to see.
Don’t get discouraged,
because we all do
have many limits
that pattern our view.
Life is a journey
filled with desire
that limits of self
will find a flat tire.
Let lose your sadness
and be glad to be
the person you are
which is you and me.
The limits of self
can become good tools
learning what’s best
and not being fools.
For wantings desires
can lie on your shelf
giving you sadness
with limits of self.

While Looking On

Lost in perception
dusk unto dawn
we miss moments
while looking on.
Time becomes echoes
we’ve yet to see
while looking on
at our history.
Portions of mornings
are just a sight
that ones mistaken
for later of night.
Time finds seconds
that went too fast
while looking on
at shadows we cast.
Don’t let today
to just fly by
while looking on
not giving a try.

Dismantled Doorways

Temporal pathways
come to conclusions
dismantled doorways
to our illusions.
So many doorways
swing and then sway
as they are opened
day after day.
Discerning pathways
temporal places
might become found
as untied shoe laces.
Causing us stumbles
tripped up to find
dismantled doorways
time after time.
It’s with our mindset
we often find grays
within the time frames
dismantled doorways.

Looking Smart

Ones with clothes
of higher pay
might be liars
their display.
Not so true
that they impart,
for they’re only
looking smart.
Leaves on trees
of brown and green
do not bestow
the truth that’s seen.
Many will not
be what you think,
for they really
truly stink.
Looking smart
is best to be
the way you are
for ones to see.
Don’t disguise
what’s found inside
for truth shows
what you can’t hide.
Let your life
show from your heart
and not just be then
looking smart.

August Dreams

Heat of summer
comes so strong
while ones wish it
to be gone.
August dreams
lie wide awake
with ones sweating
no mistake.
The month shows
how many sweat
with the rains
that get you wet.
The humidity
comes in stride,
August dreams
that coincide.
Seasons journey
takes a step
that so many
won’t forget.
August dreams
soon find a while
within the end
a wondrous smile.
September comes
a cooler time
as August dreams
are still in mind.
All of those dreams
become a place
an August time
with smiling face.
For remembered
the beginning
with sun tanning
and ones swimming.
August dreams
of wondrous ways
then are as
the greater days.

for Aug 29, 2015

Decembers window
will become clearer to see
as minutes tick on.

Life is a journey
that many will mistaken
and head the wrong way.

The winds of August
blow in a few surprises
we’re not prepared for.

Turbines on hilltops
turn with incoming breezes
to generate life.

Found on a photo
might be a few memories
that you’ve forgotten.

Heaven awaits us
with friends that have gone before,
so have faith in God.

Looking for seconds
in an hour of minutes
might become endless.

Shadows of our lives
exist in the things we’ve done,
so watch where you step.

Hinging your thinking
on some thoughts that are rusted
might just make some noise.

Lasting impressions
come often from a moment
that did not go well.

A persons wardrobe
does not testify their thoughts,
because they’re not them.

Ones unresponsive
might just be ignoring you
as they do their thing.

The doorknobs on doors
make it able to enter,
only if not locked.

Lusting for someone
can become mere destruction
as it drains you heart.

Life in general
holds so many perceptions
that we stay confused.

In a field of dreams
you might find a mystery
that creates a smile.

True loving heartbeats
will grow much stronger in time
as God intended.

Deciphering thoughts
will often lead you astray
with the wrong answers.

Holding too tightly
to someone you’re in love with
could push them away.

Within a hard life
there are lessons to be learned,
so pay attention.

Perfection is God
and we’re perfect in His Eyes
with imperfections.

A heart keeps beating
even if you can’t hear it,
for Heaven is life.

Long and winding roads
often seem to go nowhere,
but it is somewhere.

Some Old Pictures


Hello my friends

It’s been a warm week this passed few days,
but it’s supposed to stay in the 70’s for the next
week or so.  The temperature should drop to
the 60’s after that.  September is the beginning
of Autumn and up here it’s felt and seen in the
early part of September.  We’ve changed up
our tactics on potty training Rocky being that
he still hasn’t caught on.  So we’re putting him
in his crate at night and then letting him out
in the morning to go potty,  OUTSIDE.  We
are hoping that this works.  He’s beginning to
get on our nerves.  Even Judy’s fed up with
it LOL.  Hopefully this new tactic will work 🙂
He bickered a little bit when I put him in his
crate,  but he soon quit and accepted it and
went to sleep.  I let him out this morning.  he
wasn’t whining or anything and he was calm
when he got out of his crate.  I said,  come on
now,  it’s time for you and Benny to go outside
and they both followed me to the door and
went out without any fuss.  Right now Rocky
is wanting to play and he keeps jumping up
on my arm rest nudging me hehehe.  OK so
I stopped to pick him up and let him sit in my
lap for a while.  Now,  it’s time to get back to
writing,  which might be hard to do being that
Rocky is right behind me playing with his toys
that squeaky squeak LOL.  They are both in
a cantankerous playful mood hehehe.  I saw
that they had left the room and gone in our
bedroom and I went to see what they were
up to and Benny was in Rocky’s crate with
Rocky on the outside sort saying in his own
way,  hey bro,  that’s mine LOL.  Benny got
out and both of them began jumping up and
down wanting me to play with them.  They’re
getting along like brothers now.  That’s one
of the things we were hoping for.  Now if
we could just get Rocky completely potty
trained,  that would be MARVELOUS LOL.
He does though still chew on stuff,  but I’m
sure that soon he will grow out of that.  We
have tried all of the stuff that’s supposed to
deter dogs from chewing,  but it didn’t even
work on Benny hehehe.  He would just lick
it off and keep on chewing on it LOL.  So,
we’re fairly sure it won’t work on Rocky.
The weather has been a bit rainy for the
passed few days and it looks like it will
continue as such for most of the week and
maybe into the next.  I wish we could send
some rain to California and thereabouts.
They are still needing rain and with all of
the fires,  I’m sure they need it even more.
All I can send is my prayers.  I’m fixing to
stop here and start cleaning out our spare
room to get ready to haul some stuff to
storage.  I’ll be right back.  OK,  I’m back.
We hauled most of the junk to a dumpster
that Judy’s sister rented and we carried
a lot of our stuff to storage that we will
not use this year.  Making room for my
daughter Jamye and granddaughter Sami.
Jamye’s boyfriend Brian and his little boy
will be coming with them.  So we needed
our spare room cleaned out.  We have a
futon in it and we have 2 recliners in the
living room.  Hopefully my granddaughter
doesn’t have a relapse of her health issues
and make it to where she can’t come. She
has had a rough time sense she was born.
Sami has Spina Bifida.  It will be great
to see them at Christmastime.  They have
never seen a White Christmas as we see
every year.  LOL hopefully this isn’t the
year that the weather does a flip flop
and doesn’t snow.  That would be bad.
Yet so far,  the forecast has been for
a more than normal winter with more
snow,  so I don’t foresee a problem for
Christmas snow.  Now onto another
topic.  Today’s high is supposed to be
78 F degrees and right now at 4:30 it’s
77 F degrees.  Tomorrow the high is
supposed to be 75 F.  Just right!  Not
too warm and not too cold.  Of course
I would prefer it a little cooler being
that I’m hot natured 🙂  I have been
sweating like an ape in a sauna LOL.
My daughter used to say that my arms
were long and hairy enough to belong
to an ape and I would say Hahaha you
are too Funny LOL.  That was back
when she was just a little girl and I
took her to the zoo.  We passed by
the apes and she looked at me and
said related?  I said remember you
and I are related hehehe.  Nothing
more about that LOL.  I do wish we
could of spent more time together,
but too many people came between us.
Thank God we have today.  Ok,  so
next topic.  Judy is over on her PC
scanning some old pictures that she
found onto her computer.  I wish
I had more pictures than I do of my
past.  I have just a few being I did
not own a camera much of my life
and the old cameras would never
guaranty that the pictures that you
took were going to actually come
out well.  Many times I would have
more bad photos than good ones and
that was aggravating,  being they
were of times that will never be seen
again.  I guess that’s why I take so
many pictures today.  I want to have
as many pictures as I can to reflect
upon.  So many memories were lost
in the negatives of film that did not
develop well.  So that explains why
I take so many pictures LOL.  Plus
I just seem to find so much to take
a picture of that I often cannot stop
snapping that darn button hehehe.
I didn’t get my new old camera till
Tuesday of last week,  so I haven’t
taken as many pictures as I usually
do,  but you just wait LOL.  I thank
God every day for the blessings that
I receive,  even the ones I haven’t any
knowledge of.  Yes I get irritated at
things when they don’t go my way,
but that’s my humanity that still tries
to run me ragged.  God is always in
control whether we think so or not.
Ones will live and ones will die with
His will set in motion for reasons that
we might never comprehend.  Don’t
let yourself fall prey to Satan’s lies,
for he will try to deceive you into
thinking God doesn’t care.  Have
faith in God and trust that all will be
well.  Maybe not here on Earth,  but
in Heaven made anew.  Now I believe
it’s time for me to  take my little trip
back through all that I’ve written here
to see if I can find a word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s
brand new poem.  And away we go 🙂
Scanning searching scanning searching.
Aha,  found one just a little ways back
through my journal.  So now to check
to see if I have used it yet.  Nope,  so
it’s away we go.  Zooooooooooooom.

Some Old Pictures

Those days back so youthful
I still have a glance
some old pictures found then
of my song and dance.
Seasons have passed by
with times wished recorded,
but back in the old days
a camera was not afforded.
I have a few cassette tapes
that I listen to
of those times I wish that I
had pictures to view.
Yet still some old pictures
find me and others
standing with old friends,
sisters and brothers.
So now today I am with
camera at hand
to take some old pictures
for future so grand.

There ya go 🙂  I hope you liked the poem.
I got the idea from watching Judy over
there scanning pictures hehehe.  The boys
are sleeping in the floor between Judy and
I.  This is the coolest part of the house with
the dehumidifier fan running.  It takes the
humidity and cools the air.  It’s our little
portable air conditioner and that is one of
the settings on it aside from the plain old
fan mode.  Soon we will be closing the
windows and turning on the heat,  but not
for a while yet.  It will have to get down
below 40 degrees F before we will think
about turning on the heat.  Hopefully by
that time we can afford to buy some more
heating oil.  We still have a little,  but not
enough to last but only a few days.  We
do have our radiator heaters throughout
the house that we use more often,  but
we need the heating furnace to keep our
pipes from freezing.  It does get rather
cold up here ya know LOL.  Oh yea,
an update on Judy’s brother Ricky.  He
is back in the nursing home and doing
fairly well.  He has made a few friends
in the nursing home and that’s great.
He didn’t have any friends before that.
He stayed pretty much to himself.  I’ll
put one of his pictures in the stationery.
Judy brought him a doughnut from the
nearby Dunkin’ Doughnuts hehehehehe.
That made him happy.  Anyways,  that’s
about all I have.  Now it’s time for me
to be telling you what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  10 more poems
with one being sort of Christmassy 🙂
Also I once again wrote 22 haiku for
all of the haiku lovers out there.  I do
hope that you can find 1 or 2 of either
or both that you like.  Now it’s time
for me to begin my little quest for
that not so elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend and a blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  OK,  where are ya hiding
this time ya silly thing?  LOL hiding
under my Advair near my respirator
ain’t quite the best place being that
you’re not that small and you’re sort
of making it wobble a little bit hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

The Waiting Game

Ticking time bombs
that explode
the waiting game
on down the road.
With every second
so many count
the waiting game
time frames surmount.
Scenes then pass by
to attain
times exposing
the waiting game.
Minutes add up
so to say
the waiting game
of yesterday.
Every moment
gathers dust
the waiting game
times to adjust.

Linked As One

Hands held together
will surely expose
many with heartbeats
that do not oppose.
Linked as one
so many will find
they are much stronger
than one at a time.
So as our journeys
are found to bestow
look for some others
that go where you go.
Don’t become lonely
with no one to care,
for you and another
are driven with prayer.
Let God to join you
through Jesus His Son
and then become stronger
while linked as one.

Becoming Better

Learning from mishaps,
learning from pain
becoming better
give times to attain.
Living as plumage
to fly as a bird
often our pathways
are found so absurd.
Roadblocks of problems
might teach us so well
becoming better
for us to foretell.
For as remembered
things become clear
becoming better
what’s learned yesteryear.
Found as our troubles
lessons are learned
becoming better
what we have discerned.

A Road Sign

Markers for people
a pathway to find
that is well noted
within a road sign.
For without markings
of which way to go
so many people
will just miss the road.
It takes a road sign
to show ones for sure
where they are headed
within the contour.
For without road signs
ones might just get lost
headed to nowhere
with time frames of cost.
So seek a road sign
that heads the right way
and you won’t end up
real lost turning gray.

Summer’s Morn

Seasons are painted
with colors their own
as they are displayed
sometimes as windblown.
So with a camera
I head out to find
seasons to capture
in front and behind.
Morning brings pictures
alive so to say
painted as moments
of a bright summer’s day.
I snap real quickly
each image I see
so not to miss what’s
right there in front of me.
Time is the giver
of new photos born
found as the highlights
of each summer’s morn.

Recalling Winter

My thoughts of snowfall
with wintertime’s hue
brings me some joyful
when I’m feeling blue.
Recalling winter
helps me to remember
my favorite times
that are found in December.
Christmas with joyful
and songs that we sing
recalling winter
is a wonderful thing.
Each new snowflake
that falls from the sky
displays the beauty
with winters reply.
Recalling winter
helps summer to fade
like an ice cold glass of
strawberry limeade.

Long Winded People

Beneath ones talking
holds words that they say
sometimes so many
that others amscray.
Long winded people
will tend to say more
than they are needing
as ones slam the door.
Don’t be so wordy
with all that you know.
Learn to speak fluent
with shorter to flow.
Long winded people
will often be found
alone in the corner
with no one around.
Try and be wiser
in things that you say
and don’t be long winded
to make others pay.

One Time Thing

Looking back
seen through my eyes
a one time thing
was my surprise.
Times connected
there and then
a one time thing
of where I’d been.
Making music
on the beach
summers blessings
one time each.
A 4 man band
as each day flows
guitars strumming
and bongos.
A one time thing
we used to play
long ago
on summers day.
Then as shadows
they were gone
a one time thing
another dawn.
My remembrance
comes so clear
of that time frames
A one time thing
of style and grace
now lives on
another place.
As just memories
found inside
a one time thing
my thoughts reside.

God Will Surprise

Life as a sinner
will often run dry
leaving you empty
in your by and by.
Often our journeys
will lead us to find
lessons to learn
with a new frame of mind.
So many people
will just look away
and not want to find out
what God has to say.
Yet God will so often
show them oh so true
the sight of their choices
that need made anew.
Then as if magic
Lord God will surprise
and find someone Hell bent
and open their eyes.

Love Remains

We might have some problems,
but we still hold true,
for you still really love me
and I really love you.
As each day brings struggles
we each time will grow
stronger together
with each high and low.
Surely Lord Jesus
is here as our guide
as we’re together
with Him found inside.
Time becomes endless
as echoes roll on
found within moments
of dusk unto dawn.
Windows of mercy
are as Heavens grains
found in our heartbeats
as love remains.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

for Aug 22,  2015

Mysteries of life
come as doorways with some dreams
and a few nightmares.

The size of ones smile
does not always tell the truth,
for it could be false.

Leftover fractions
might end up being wasted
due to the moment.

Counting the leaves
could find you in an abyss
as the wind will blow.

When wanting first place
it could show you deception
of what first place is.

A bird flapping wings
can maneuver through the skies.
It was born for flight.

Seasonal footprints
are found in many places,
but not understood.

Annoying people
often have not any clue
of their annoyance.

Describing yourself
might seem unnecessary
when you think you’re clear.

Life on some paper
has only words to be read,
but truth has actions.

A misty morning
displays clouds hiding sunshine
with hope it will pass.

Beyond emotions
holds the key points of heartbeats
found as expression.

Sights seen in the skies
find many wondering what
or who that it is.

The smile of a dog
can bring you out of sadness
and show you true joy.

Each days arrival
gives way for a brand new sight
to search and to find.

Allowing sadness
to always be within you
gives no room for smiles.

The life of a clown
might hide a frown within it
hidden with a smile.

One that’s a bully
will often be insecure
fearing of others.

The summer grass grows
to only drive ones insane
as they mow it down.

Footsteps in the snow
might look larger than they are
due to perception.

Staring at the sun
can find you nothing to see
as you’ll lose your sight.

The twinkling essence
of the stars deep in the night
make many dreams.

It Will Hold Together


Hello my friends

It seems that summer wasn’t quite through with
us being that we’ve had a number of 80 F degree
days this passed week and it looks like we might
get a few more this week before moving back to
the 70 F degree range and below.  Our nights
have been in the 60’s,   but even that should get
back to normal by the end of the week.  It did
the same thing last year or at least I think it did
as my memory sort of recalls LOL.  I’m not sure
beyond that.  This winter is supposed to be a
bad one,  but we shall see.  What some call bad,
I call pretty,  but on the worse days,  tolerable.
I would be dying if I were in Texas.  My body
can’t handle the heat.  I am very hot natured.
Yes,  I do get cold,  but not quite as often as
Judy does.  I most times have to sleep on top
of the covers.  Anyways,  onwards with the
journal.  Benny and Rocky are getting along
great.  Rocky has finally caught on to the fact
that he is to do his pottying outside,  but he
still often gets into our clothes and chews on
things.  The lady gave us a random birthday
and both Judy and I know for a fact that he is
not no 3 years old LOL.  More like 9 months
to a year or so.  So we have made his birthday
the same day that we picked him up from the
airport which was Benny’s birthday which is
July 16, 2011,  but made Rocky’s birthday
date more like 2014 hehehe.  So we will be
celebrating their birthdays together.  Milo’s
birthday was Oct 31,  2004 (a Halloween pup).
Rocky still has his baby teeth and is always
chewing on something and that includes my
fingers at times hehehe.  He’ll grow out of it,
maybe hehehe.  Benny still loves to play and
chew on my fingers which does get him a
scolding from time to time.  Yes,  we scold
Rocky too about it.  So far Rocky’s chewing
doesn’t hurt,  but Benny has all of his teeth.
They are growing to be closer as each day
comes to pass.  Seeing them playing chase
through the house makes us smile.  Rocky
will even go outside to potty without me
having to literally carry him outside and
put him at the bottom of the steps.  That’s
a blessing,  being that was getting old LOL.
We’ve got our portable AC running in here
in the PC room.  That thing was one of the
best things I ever bought aside from our
radiator heaters for winter 🙂  Right now
it’s 84 F degrees at 2:30 PM.  Yeppers it’s
a tad warm for up here,  but it will pass in
time.  Next topic.  The camera I ordered
was supposed to be here last Friday,  but
it’s been rescheduled for Monday July
17th so I should get it tomorrow.  It’s the
same make and model of the camera I
have now,  but hopefully in better shape 🙂
They said it was in very good condition,
so if not,  I’ll return it,  but I think it will
be as noted.  Their sales record is very
good with 5 stars.  I’m getting tired of
having to keep retaping my camera so
it will hold together hehehe.  I might in
the future figure out a way to fix it,  but
it would be nice to have the new old one
so I don’t have to mess with it.  It takes a
long time to retrieve pictures through a
USB cable directly from the camera and
that’s how I am having to do it now.  I’ll
keep it for a back up,  but I’m fairly sure
that the tape will not hold in our subzero
temperatures hehehe.  OK,  so what else
is their to ramble about.  Oh yea,  Judy’s
brother Ricky is having his leg below his
knee amputated Monday.  Judy is driving
down to be with him and stay and come
back Tuesday.  She has already got her
a motel room booked to stay in that is
near the hospital.  Lewiston is a 4 hour
drive south of us.  Please keep Judy in
your prayers as she makes the journey.
I’ll have to stay here and take care of
the boys.  Last week when she went she
called when she got there and when she
was headed home so I would know she
was OK.  I understand more and more
as time goes by why my mom and dad
always had me call when I got to where
I was going and then when I was headed
back home.  The unforeseen things will
happen that we’re not prepared for at
times and it’s good to know that after
a bit,  someone will be looking for you
if you do not call or don’t show up at
the time you should be arriving.  I’ve
learned many lessons as I’ve gotten
older.  Some of them were through my
stubbornness.  Yes I still find myself in
stubborn ville,  but not as often as I was
visiting it in my youth.  We all have our
moments of stubbornness that we want
what we want and want it now.  It might
not display in a great scale in your life,
but there are still places,  times or things
that we wish would hurry up and get here.
Life has a funny way of not handing out
all that we want and no not in a funny
HaHa sense,  but yet in a not so HaHa
sense.  Life is a mystery no matter how
much you think you know.  The skies
will often rain even if the weatherman
says it’s not in the forecast.  Yep,  rain
clouds have a way of just showing up at
their own discretion.  We will often get
snow when it’s nowhere in the forecast.
That’s why it’s always best for us to be
prepared.  I know we can’t prepare for
everything,  but we can prepare for most.
Firstly,  prepare your soul for Heaven,
by taking Jesus as your Savior and not
losing yourself in the sins of life.  Yes,
we all sin on a day to day basis,  but
having Jesus as your Lord and Savior
gives way for forgiveness.  To be human
is to be a sinner.  It’s in our blood,  but
we can let God work through us to try
and change our lives as best that we
can.  I have tons of backwash in my
life that I have given to God.  I know I
cannot go back and change it,  so I give
it to Christ to forgive me.  Let God show
you a brand new life through His Son
Jesus Christ.  Learn to let things go if
you see that you’re just hanging on to
baggage.  I’ve had some laughable stuff
to find its way into my life and that’s the
part that I hang onto as memories that
I use to cheer myself up when I’m sad.
The harder times I remember so as to
remind myself that things can always
get worse,  but I will be OK,  because
I have Jesus in my life.  I stared death
in the eyes and survived a number of
times and that just strengthened my
faith in Jesus.  Our lives are numbered
as many come and go at their own time
of which we might think too early.  But
the fact is,  it’s always the right timing
for God knows what’s best.  Learn how
to live today and not stay in depression
for what we cannot change.  Learn from
the past and find the joy in the future.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin
my little quest back through all that I’ve
written 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 little place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a decent title
near the middle of my rambling and now
after checking I see that I have not used
it yet,  so AWAY WE GO.

It Will Hold Together

Lives of destruction
with a definite face
can hold together
through Jesus Christ Grace.
Sometimes a turnstile
that we had mistaken
finds us with problems
of futures partaken.
You can find blessings then
from God forever
and your life structured
it will hold together.
Taped up with passion
and love oh so fine
it will hold together
through Jesus Divine.
Our seasons troubles
might seem to explode
and then return with
times down the road.
Yet with God’s mercy
your heart will show true.
It will hold together
with Jesus Christ glue.

There ya go hehehe.  I hope that was good
enough for ya.  I hope my rambling didn’t
put you to sleep.  So,  what else do I need to
tell ya?  Once again,  please keep Judy in
your prayers and definitely keep Ricky in
your prayers.  Judy’s brother is facing his
amputation tomorrow (Monday) and we
are not sure about his faith in God.  He’s
a good man,  but we are not sure if God
is a part of his life.  Please pray that his
eyes are opened and the surgery goes well.
OK,  so what else is there to tell ya?  Hmm,
it looks like I have run out of my thoughts
and so it is time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems with 1 of them being
sort of Christmassy.  Also I once again
wrote 22 haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like.  Now,  I do
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 and a blessings filled week.
OK,   where the dickens are ya you lil
whippersnapper?  I see ya hiding over
there in front of the Air conditioner 🙂
I guess hiding wasn’t as important as
staying cool today huh hehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Waves Of Thoughts

Beneath the oceans
waves of thoughts
life is flowing
twist and toss.
Scenes are changing
time begins
waves of thoughts
with raging winds.
A ship found sailing
there and to

ocean blue.
Waves of thoughts
are found begun
beneath the starlight
and the sun.
Each scene blessed with
sights to see
waves of thoughts
with history.

Troubles Come

Life goes on
as times consume
things we think of
then and soon.
Troubles come
and doors are found
leaving footsteps
on the ground.
Lessons come from
troubled times
learning from the
bad designs.
Many times
we’ve no control
troubles come
to take their toll.
God gives blessings
time agin.
Troubles come
from mortal sin.
So many doorways
open wide,
troubles come
to take a ride.
Use those moments
strengthen your mind
when troubles come
the blessings you’ll find.
After the troubles
you might see
all of the lessons
in history.

Within A Storm

Lightning streaking
across the sky
gives out volume
thunders cry.
Sounds found roaring
loud to hear
within a storm
it will appear.
Captured seconds
the lightning is
something to see.
Thunder roaring
loud with gain
gives a bellow
to attain.
Within a storm
is hopes design
found with raindrops
time to time.
The clouds of white
might turn real dark
and then appear
to growl and bark.
Within a storm
time might display
a distant rainbow’s
wondrous way.
The clouds might leave
to later form
lighting and thunder
within a storm.

Winter’s Dream

Summertime’s painting
is left with a gaze
filled with the brushstrokes
of many displays.
Painted with colors
of blue skies and more
seeking for winter’s
dream to adore.
Winter’s perception
is that of snow white
often with colors
of Christmas delight.
Time becomes countless
with minutes to spare
bringing in winter’s
on special flair.
Christmastimes beauty
within winter’s dream
becomes an echo
of red,  blue and green.
Those Christmas colors
that are found in the night
as winter’s dream
of a wonderful sight.

His Love Is The Greatest

No matter our structure,
no matter our mind
God loves us greatest
through all of mankind.
He sent us His Son
to show us the way
and help us when weakened
with our day to day.
His love is the greatest,
for He truly cares
as He gives us hopeful
through all of our prayers.
No matter our color,
no matter our voice,
Lord God still loves us
with every bad choice.
His love is the greatest
for Jesus bestows
His strength to guide us
through our highs and lows.
Don’t let a moment
to steal away your heart
for this too shall pass on
as time frames depart.
His love is the greatest
and always shall be
there through Lord Jesus
to give love for free.

Lost One Of Heartaches

When in a whirlwind
you might not see
all that’s around you
and given for free.
Life could be awesome
if only you’d find
peace within Jesus
and your own design.
Often our troubles
are out of our hand
so we need Jesus
to help us withstand.
A lost one of heartaches
might only find Hell
left within turnstiles
of times not so well.
Don’t let your problems
to drive you insane.
Let God to guide you
through better to gain.
A lost one of heartaches
can learn how to fly
as they’re with Lord God
in Heaven on High.
He’ll take those problems
and show how so true
a lost one of heartaches
can be made anew.

The Scent Of Winter

With autumns windows
comes colors divine
found as the makeup of
flavors to dine.
Tasty looking morsels
of colors so sweet
display their banquet
for snow to defeat.
The scent of winter
then comes rushing through
with the aroma of
white snow so true.
The feast is enlightened
for wintertime’s days
scented with blessings
in so many ways.
The snowflakes start falling
and painting the sky
with every morsel
just learning to fly.
The scent of winter
is brought forth from fall
as autumns colors
are not seen at all.
The white snow envelops
the colors before
as the scent of winter
is there to adore.

The Moon’s Big Smile

Some people say
that the man in the moon
lives there so brilliant
for true love to swoon.
Some people say
that the moons big smile
can bring us passion
in just but a while.
Some people say
that the guy that they see
is a moon man of time
with smiles given free.
Some people say
that big thing that glows
can then when it’s looked at
end all our woes.
I think the moon
holds many mysteries
as it will cause
the swelling of seas.
I think the moon
is much more than just round.
It gives reflections
right here on the ground.
I think the moon
is much more to compile
than just a segment of
the moon’s big smile.

Breezes Of Summer

Deepness of summer
is found sort of warm
with breezes blowing
to give us its charm.
Breezes of summer
are found in the sky
as fluffy clouds come
passing us by.
Summer’s on moments
will come and then go
leaving for autumn
and winters white snow.
Time becomes pathways
driven to be
breezes of summer
and so much to see.
Sometimes a rain cloud
will leave its trail
breezes of summer
then are set sail.
Found in the echoes
of time come before
breezes of summer
display so much more.
Heartbeats of sunshine
with many a plan
breezes of summer
to seek for a tan.
Summer shows portholes
of time moving on
breezes found blowing
to find a new dawn.

Desert Realms

A dusty trail
of thoughts galore
is desert realms
of times before.
Lost with footsteps
counted true
are desert realms
with hope so few.
Too much baggage
can revert
to the realms
of trails desert.
Find the answers
and then learn
to leave the desert
to discern.
Lessons thrive
in desert realms
when you let God
take the helms.

A glancing moment
might display the wrong viewpoint
for others to see.

Knowing ones lifestyle
might not prove that you know them,
for reasons evade.

A cameras view
does not always catch it all,
for our eyes see more.

Tree leaves of summer
sing their songs with the breezes
as sweet melodies.

Searching for some peace
might be better found within
as you kneel in prayer.

Life has many paths
with turnstiles to enter in
or to walk away.

Beneath a large tree
there might be a smaller tree
needing some sunlight.

The moonlight of night
brings forth many sights to see
with the stars above.

Life can seem hurried,
but often it’s our actions
that need slowing down.

Appointments in time
might need to be rescheduled
due to importance.

Following a bird
in its flight through the night skies
might need some talent.

Sometimes our windows
might need a little cleaning
so we can see clear.

A persons heartbeat
might be hidden from others
and no one know it.

Signs of a liar
are displayed in their actions
that are not normal.

Halfhearted people
will often become disease
that infects you too.

Looking for starlight
finds many staring upwards
searching through the skies.

Life has a doorway
that needs to be opened up
to allow true love.

The needs of others
might seem very tedious,
but to them they’re great.

Life in the fast lane
could cause you to crash your mind
and end in despair.

Someone’s deception
might end up as crying wolf
and no one to come.

As summer finds end
it leaves a trail of sunshine
to lead to autumn.

Painting with photos
needs one to look all around
and see the unseen.

Falling Off


Hello my friends

Yet another week has gone by and the
weather has not been too bad.  It’s been
in the 70’s most of time with a few days
in the upper 60’s and no not Celsius 🙂
That would be rather freaking hot if it
were Celsius.  Judy and I are doing OK.
Rocky has just about drove us bonkers
though hehehe.  He has gone 3 days now
without making potty in the house aside
from yesterday evening when Judy got
home from her sisters house and Rocky
got all excited and jumped up on our
bed and peed.  On Judy’s side of the bed
yet LOL.  I just wish he would quit with
the getting into our clothes.  I am tired
of folding my clothes and putting them
away with him coming up right behind
me climbing up to pull them down.  He
has been doing the same with Judy’s
clothes.  I am hoping that he learns to
not do that soon.  I don’t like having to
spank him.  If he could understand the
English language,  it might be a little
easier LOL.   Oh well,  he’s just a pup
and learning gradually.  Judy’s brother
Ricky is not doing well at all health wise.
Please keep him in your prayers.  OK so
what else is going on around this nut
house 🙂 ?  Well,  the vet that we took
Milo to that also put him to sleep and
cremated him,  sent us a sympathy card
the other day.  The Vet wrote a sweet
note and signed it and the office also
signed it.  They could tell how much
Milo meant to us and for that matter
still does.  He will always be a part of
our family.  Rocky has brought us much
joy and as he learns more and more of
what he’s not supposed to do,  he will
bring us even more joy hehehe.  It’s so
nice seeing him and Benny playing and
having fun.  Rocky simply loves to play
with the doggy toys.  We have tons of
them LOL. 2 toy boxes full of them 🙂
He tries to get them all out to play with
and our PC room tends to get a little
cluttered time to time the same as our
living room LOL,  but he is having fun
and they are just doggy toys and they
can be put away,  (to be dug out once
again not 10 minutes later) LOL.  Yep
he loves the toys.  Benny likes the toys,
but he was never so caught up with
them as much as Rocky.  Milo had a
few that were his favorites,  such as
Lamb Chop and the blue octopus 🙂
Of course we have multiple of them
both,  but he had his chosen favorites.
When Milo came inside,  he would
snatch up Lamb Chop and make a
dash through the kitchen to the PC
room LOL.  The PC room is where
I am now,  our computer room LOL,
so get your head out of the gutter 🙂
Yep,  it’s nice having the sound of
little feet running through our house.
The boys will often play chase back
and forth from the living room to
the PC room.  OK,  so what else is
going on around the Pearce’s Place?
Well it looks like we might get some
rain beginning Tuesday Evening,
but who knows for sure?  It could all
change at the drop of a hat,  but who’s
gonna drop the hat and what kind of
hat will it be?  Will it be a cowboy
,Tryolean,  Fedora,  Bowler,  Boater,
Panama,  Homburg,  Porkpie,  Stingy
Brim,  Baseball,  Tophat,  Straw or
Campaign Hat?  Hehehe I be silly 🙂
But,  you’ve gotta admit,  the weather
has a mind of its own and only God
truly knows what it will be.  I follow
it on my PC weather radar programs,
but even that does not always hold so
true,  because it has a weird way of
changing its mind.  Oh yea,  a Derby
and a Bowler hat are the same thing.
LOL Just saying!  There are many
more different styles of hats,  being I
mostly only mentioned the men’s hats.
Some of them are ones that women
have been seen wearing also.  LOL,
I guess this is the trivial part of my
journal,  not that anything else that
I write isn’t trivial hehehe.  I haven’t
done much picture taking lately being
my camera keeps falling apart and
the one that I ordered the first of the
month never got shipped and Amazon
refunded my money.  I went yesterday
and reordered from another vender
through Amazon for a better price 🙂
and they are supposed to ship it by
Tuesday.  So,  hopefully I will have
it before the week is out.  My camera
is literally falling apart hehehehehe.
It’s held together with masking tape.
Judy bought it for me back in 2004
and it has served me well,  so I went
and found the very same camera on
Amazon and bought it.  It’s still the
top of the line in my book.  If my card
and card cover would quit falling off
I wouldn’t have to buy another one,
but the SD card will not stay in the
slot and so the cover has been used
to keep it in and now it is broken and
keeps falling off leaving way for the
SD card to fall out.  The camera will
not work without the cover.  If it’s
not closed,  the camera will not come
on.  So,  you see my dilemma hehehe.
Anyways,  I am looking forwards to
getting my new old camera of the
same making,   but not broken LOL.
Right now it’s 69 F degrees at 2:04
in the afternoon.  Not too awful bad.
I did manage to take a few decent
pictures with my camera while trying
to keep my camera card in place 🙂
Judy also took a few good pictures.
I went over and took some pictures
of the Black-Eyed Susans (flowers)
and I got a few good pictures of the
clouds in the sky as well.  Yep.  my
camera still works good,  when it’s
not falling apart LOL.  I’ll keep it for
a back up.  Who knows,  I might be
able to one day find a way to fix it.
Next topic.  Hmm,  I cannot for the
life of me think of anything else to
tell you,  so I guess it’s time for me
head 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 just a
little ways back and after checking
I see that I have not used it yet,  so
away we go 🙂

Falling Off

Hills of wonder
times we’ve seen
falling off
becomes a dream.
Floating swiftly
through the sky
hills of wonder
oh so high.
Wondrous moments
become found
falling off
to solid ground.
Blissful settings
dreams and more
falling off
begins to soar.
Heading up then
deep in space
with a peaceful
smiling face.
Then as ticking
time moves on
falling off then
sees new dawn.
While allowing
changes made
falling off
shows ones afraid.
Fear not changes
times accord
falling off
to climb aboard.
Seeing new days
come to be
falling off
might set you free.
So those anchors
in time slots
might need loosened
falling off.
For the new days
that are shown
might be blessings
Heaven grown.
Falling off of
morbid times
gives a way for
new designs.

OK,  so that might not of been one of my
better poems LOL.  It’s the words that
my fingers typed.  Most times I have no
clue of what I’ve written until I am done
and read back through it.  Some people
call it automatic writing/typing.  I hope
you enjoyed my rambling.  I know I tend
to go on and on about the boys hehehe.
That’s life at the Pearce’s place 🙂  LOL.
I had to take a potty break and when
I got out I saw Rocky lying on our bed
waiting for me to get out with his tail
wagging profusely hehehe.  Benny is
also now back in here.  Right now it’s
sort of cloudy outside,  but there’s no
rain in the forecast for today and we
needed a break.  Getting sort of water
logged if ya know what I mean LOL.
I did manage to finish weed eating
yesterday,  but now I’m aching more
than ever.  I kept hoping that our
landlord would make it over to do
it,  but I got sick and tired of all of
the freaking weeds around our house.
Rocky went outside with me and was
following me while watching me cut
the weeds.  Our weed eater isn’t a
big one.  It’s fairly light,  but it’s
also not good for the big weeds so,
I had to pull them and my hands
and all are sore as (well  you know).
I’ll survive as Lord God intends
for me to.  When my time is up,  it
will be up,  but until that day I’ll
continue trying to do the best that
I can to take care of my family.
We don’t have much money,  but
we do have tons of love and that
in my book is worth more than any
amount of gold or diamonds.  We
can see God’s Hands at work in
our lives as we watch these 2 boys
playing together with smiles on
their faces.  Judy and I have so
much to be thankful.  We’ve had
our share of struggles,  but all in
all we have been blessed.  So,  do
you know Jesus.  Do you love God?
Have you decided to let God to
help you with your life?  Life can
be so lonely without Him by your
side.  Why not make the decision
today to learn about The One that
breathed life into our hearts and
gave us His Son Jesus Christ to be
our guide.  With God,  all things are
possible.  Now I believe it’s time
for me to begin searching for that
not so elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wondrous
weekend and a blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now,  where is that
confounded off switch hiding this
time?  LOL,  you’ve gotta be nuts.
Hiding behind my hot cocoa cup
is not the greatest 🙂 being I’m still
drinking it ya know hehehe.  Sip,
aah  good cocoa and there ya are 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Friday’s Dream

Times I’ve thought of
times I’ve seen
come to be with
Friday’s dream.
Scenes remembered
long ago
Friday’s dream
I used to know.
All those moments
found in time
now are only
dreams of mine.
Playing music
singing too
Friday’s dream
I used to do.
It was much more
than a dream
for those Fridays
times agleam.
Yet those moments
now are gone
but my Friday’s
dream lives on.

Trivial Thoughts

With but a moment
we can become lost
within a turnstile
of trivial thoughts.
Pages turned quickly
with lesser to learn
trivial thoughts
are what ones discern.
Not seeing clearly
the better to view
the trivial thoughts
can turn you askew.
Don’t let your mind to
only see gray
with trivial thoughts
from day to day.
Find the important
things to discover
lesser the trivial
better the other.
For the good moments
might pass you by
if trivial thoughts
are all you rely.

Open Canvas

Pictures taken
left and right
become open
canvas sight.
Scenes transfixing
that display
become paintings
in a way.
An open canvas
gives the room
for a journey
times attune.
A photograph
of what we saw,
open canvas
fills with awe.
With each brushstroke
that is made
the greater times
are then displayed.
An open canvas
blank at first
shows a picture
times emersed.
With each second
passing by
open canvas
gives a try.
As each moment
finds its place
open canvas
shines with grace.

An Earth Bound Star

A star that’s falling
gives a wish
times so hopeful
ones de-lish.
An Earth bound star
streaks through the sky
with ones asking
how and why.
The star falling
gives a glance
that of skylights
song and dance.
It paints pictures
we can see
an Earth bound star
of history.
It might burn up
in atmosphere
with no sign
it was ever here.
Yet the seer
of the sight
might remember
that delight.
Stars a twinkling
glimmers glow
with an Earth bound
star they know.

Night Sounds

The dark of night
gives way to things
night sounds with
something that sings.
Often echoes
heard so clear
are imagined
in our fear.
Beneath the stars
and moon so bright
night sounds find
a way to fright.
All those sounds
might really be
the same by day
of which we see.
Yet so often
time astounds
darkness fear
within night sounds.

A List Of Things

A page of words
and numbers too,
a list of things
comes into view.
Times remembered
done and said
a list of things
becomes our dread.
Turning minutes
into baggage
a list of things
the minutes ravage.
Let the list to
become lesser
not just lying
on your dresser.
Without holding
every minute
a list of things
has lesser in it.
Hold but only
what you need
a list of things
for futures seed.
Let God help you
find today
a list of things
much better way.

Aqua Heart

One with water
not of blood
bleeds without  a
beating thud.
An aqua heart
of one so cold
beats of water
times unfold.
Left from passed days
withered styles
an aqua heart
shows evil smiles.
Though the aqua
heart can find
a loving way
through good mankind.
Lessons learned
can fall apart
finding love from
aqua heart.
Then the blood red
beating true
can begin to
learn anew.
The aqua heart
can learn to love
finding God
from up above.
Seeing truly
what can be
beyond an aqua
heart of sea.
For the depths
of heart and soul
an aqua heart
can be made whole.

Lost In Perception

So many eyes
see only the black
lost in perception
a little off track.
Some people look
for only the wrong
and don’t see truly
what’s going on.
Lost in perception
causes our sight
to see only wrong ways
not seeing right.
Sometimes right now
is just but a phase
lost in perception
of certain ways.
Find so much better
with visual correction
and don’t be always
lost in perception.

Grains Of Earth

Distant melodies
come to sound
grains of Earth
upon the ground.
Every echo
heard in time
becomes someone’s
own design.
Grains of Earth
are put together
by Lord God
to be forever.
Yet they’re changing
to attain
timeless seen
with more to gain.
Each with doorways
found to show
grains of Earth
to surely grow.
Many questions
come to be
grains of Earth
to deep blue sea.

Sometimes life
that’s intermixed
can cause us to
then be transfixed.
Many scenes
can hold our sight
many days
and many nights.
Times remembered

can so often
end in woe.
To be transfixed
on yesterdays
might just find
an endless maze.
So let passed days
find their place
in their minutes

for Aug 7,  2015

When without guidance
you might find yourself empty
headed the wrong way.

Mornings of sorrow
might conclude from some problems
you went to bed with.

Losing your footing
needs you to look more closely
where it is you step.

A little journey
can turn into a long trip
if you don’t prepare.

The clouds in the sky
might describe the days feelings
and just need to rain.

A green tree of life
holds the power of a breath
as it grows with time.

Short sighted people
only see what’s before them
and not what could be.

Left could be right ways
if it’s the right direction
and not in the wrong.

Pathways of heartbeats
might find quite a few speed bumps
to prove they are true.

As summer finds end
it gives way for some colors
found within autumn.

The future is made
as each day finds momentum
to be good or bad.

Many worriers
fail to see what’s possible
and only see now.

Shadows of nightfall
come as mysteries doorways
of dreams and much more.

The patterns we make
often reflect how we think
and others surmise.

The deep seas of time
display waves of emotions
created by God.

Seeing a picture
or hearing someone’s story
does not make it true.

Deception lives on
as many try to make facts
out of someone’s lies.

Gradient hillsides
can cause a climber to fall
if he is careless.

Pointless is anger
if it’s from the distant days,
for those days are gone.

Mesmerized turnstiles
can often draw you in them
if you’re not sober.

Angels of mercy
are sent down from God above
to help us withstand.

Having and holding
does not make things as your own,
for time takes its toll.

Surely Encounter


Hello my friends

It’s been a sort of warm week up this ways,  but
all in all not too bad.  Today’s high is supposed to
be 78 F degrees.  Right now it’s 76 F.  According
to my weather program,  after tomorrow it might
be cooling down a bit.  Tomorrow’s high shows
as to be 86 F,  but after that it’s supposed to be
77 F for Tuesday and the lower 70’s all the way
into next week LOL.  Yep,  this is Maine hehehe.
Benny and Rocky are doing well and are getting
along together fine.  They have started playing
together which is what we had hoped for aside
from Rocky learning to do all of his potty work
outside.  He is showing promise in that area 🙂
He’s had only one pooping accident since last
week.  Although,  he is still choosing to do it
on the top front steps LOL.  I’m sure in time he
will learn.  He’ll learn that he gets a spanking
if he poops on the steps,  but doesn’t if he poops
in the yard where he’s supposed to hehehehe.
He’s been good about not peeing on the floor
too.  He has only had a couple of accidents in
the last week.  Rocky is a pup in training.  We
went through a lot of that with Benny when we
got him.   Benny was about 8 months old when
we got him and he had been somewhat potty
trained,  but not for our house so we had to
re-teach him a tad.  Benny learned and so will
Rocky 🙂  Milo was an old boy and already
knew better than making potty in the house.
He would knock at the door with his paw to
let you know he needed to go out and if that
didn’t work,  he would start barking at us 🙂
He always got the message across hehehe.
So,  this house is once again teaming with
8 paws bouncing around the house.  Rocky
has learned how to get on the bed with us
just like Benny and of course Milo.  He’s
a lovable little guy.  We always do our best
to show them love equally,  because we love
them both.  They both love to play and to be
played with.  LOL right now they’re lying in
the floor head to head.  They’ve begun doing
that quite often here lately.  I got some cute
pictures of them watching me walk to check
the mail.  Judy stopped at the head of our
driveway and I got out as always and went
to check our mailbox and when I turned to
come back I saw both of their heads sticking
out of the window side by side watching me.
You can’t complain about that hehehehehe.
It rained a tad Friday evening and we got
a lot of wind along with a short 1 minute
power outage.  It also rained Thursday
night and we lost our Satellite TV signal
for about 45 minutes.  It looks like we’re
in for a little more rain this week.  That’s
OK by me,  but the boys don’t care for it
much LOL.  We might see wintertime a
little earlier this year.  Only God knows!
LOL I can’t wait to see Rocky’s reaction
to snow.  I’m fairly sure he’s never seen it.
When we got Benny,  there was already
some snow on the ground with more to
come hehehe.  Benny came to us from
Missouri,  so we’re fairly sure he had
seen snow before,  but Rocky came from
Florida,  the snowless state LOL.  Yep,
Rocky is in for a BIG SURPRISE this
winter.  Heck, he might surprise us and
love it as much as Benny,  but for some
reason I don’t think so.  He’s more like
Milo was.  He prefers to stay indoors,
but you never know hehehe.  Both him
and Benny have been getting use out of
the doghouse.  It has an upstairs balcony
that Benny loves to sit on,  but even he
has began crawling inside and enjoying
it.  I got a few pictures of Benny in the
doghouse with Rocky coming over to
sit with him on the outside.  We love to
watch them.  It’s 76 F degrees still at
3:40 PM.  Not too bad for summertime.
I feel bad for all those down south of us
in the 90-100+ temperatures.  Although
they will be saying almost the same thing
about us this coming winter hehehehehe.
Yep,  it’s with the changes that makes life
so magical.  If things never changed it
would get quite boring,  or at least to me
it would.  I like spring/summer,  but I
always yearn to see Fall and then the
first snowflake.  It gives us something
to look forward to.  God gives us many
changes so to keep us entertained in a
way.  It influences our thinking patterns
as we see things changing before us and
mysteries are uncovered to expose more
mysteries.  Look for the blessings in the
changes in your daily life.  If there are
no changes,  you might begin to turn
stagnate and depressed.  The joy of God
is all around us,  in heartbeats of little
ones to the smiles of ones that we meet.
Seek for the glimmer of a blessing in
your day to day life.  You might just be
surprised to find it where you never
thought to look,  INSIDE.  I often let
my mind drift off to think about the
good times I have seen and thank God
for them all.  I know there will be bad
times,  but that’s life.  Out tomorrow’s
are filled with good and bad that we
will most surely encounter.  Let God
be with you through them all.  The bad
will be more tolerable and the good will
be more pleasant.  I have my share of
bad days,  but I always know that this
too shall pass.  Life is a journey through
turnstiles of life with some seeming as
echoes,  because we may not of learned
from them when they came through the
first time or they’re times that we need
to enlighten us or make us smile.  Let
God travel with you through your daily
journeys and you will be blessed.  You
will still see bad times,  but you’ll have
strength through His Son Jesus Christ
to endure.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to be taking 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.  So,  it’s away I go to
that little place of my recollection that I
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE 🙂
I think I may have found a good title
just a little ways back in my rambling
and now after checking I see that I
have not used it yet,  So away we go.

Surely Encounter

Crossroads of timeless
meet crisscross of days
to surely encounter
some left and right ways.
Often the pitfalls
will seem way too deep,
but with God beside you
the holes will not keep.
Life can be burdensome
filled with despair
to surely encounter
some times unaware.
Left ways and right ways
can often seem bland
as ones will continue
to try hard to stand.
We’ll surely encounter
what’s thought as all wrong,
but find out much later
that it did belong.
Maybe a lesson learned,
maybe a tool
to help us to do things
taught from life’s school.
Some patterns might display
long and winding roads,
but you might then discover
some lessons in loads.
We’ll surely encounter
things thought not so fair,
but in the end my friend
we each have a prayer.

There ya go.  I hope the poem made sense
to ya.  Also I hope my rambling didn’t put
you to sleep hehehe.  I do tend to talk a lot
about the boys huh LOL.  You didn’t have
to read it ya know hehehe.  But,  if you did,
I hope it brought you a smile.  Judy is over
there writing on her book.  I’ve proof read
two chapters so far.  She sent me two more
chapters last night.  I’ll get started reading
over them later tonight or tomorrow.  So
far,  I have enjoyed what I’ve read.  She’s a
good writer.  I think I told ya once before,
but just in case,  she’s writing a sci-fi novel.
She has already written 2 books.  1 is a
poetry book and the other is about Benny
which is a children’s picture poetry book.
I’m very proud of her.  I would do a book,
but it would be a total stress on me to go
and find the poems to publish and then do
editing and reformatting and me with only
one good eye would become a lot of time
consumption with my right eye always
getting weak after an hour and having
to rest it.  Judy isn’t writing her books
to get rich,  but that would be nice LOL.
No,  she hasn’t made any money so far.
The sale of her books needs to be a lot
more than it is before she will see a check.
Maybe one day and maybe one day I will
make the decision to put in the time to
get some books published,  but not now.
For now,  you will have to read all my
ramblings in this hehehe.  OK,  so now
I think it’s time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems with one
of them being sort of Christmassy.  I
also wrote 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like.  Now I believe it’s time for me to
be searching for that not so elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend and a most
blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now,  where are
ya hiding this week ya silly varmint?
I see ya,  you’re trying a new hiding
spot huh!  Too bad it’s right there in
front of me hehehe.  Hiding behind
the air conditioner remote isn’t very
good.  The remotes only a quarter
of an inch thick,  so all I have to say
is Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

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

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

My Monochrome Mind

The scenes within
my monochrome mind
bring forth a journey
of time after time.
Scenes so transfixing
as old days have passed
bring forth a journey
with a shadowy cast.
My monochrome mind
lives now as a glimmer
scenes of snow white
I’ve found within winter.
With breezes blowing
and snowflakes to fall
my monochrome mind
will record it all.
Yet sometimes colors
will paint a design
displaying memories
my monochrome mind.

In The Beginning

Looking for doorways
time evolves space
in the beginning
of the human race.
God creates pathways
that started with one
in the beginning
when time has begun.
A moment of thinking
thought up to be
in the beginning
of you and of me.
The stage always changing
with moments of mind
in the beginning
of time after time.
God had imagined
what all He created
in the beginning
what all He awaited.
The first then of Adam
and then there was Eve
in the beginning
that God did conceive.
Life became abundant
as time ticked ahead
in the beginning
with all that was said.
Each page was turning
with new stages set
in the beginning
we should not forget.
Time was a journey
for many to grow
in the beginning
of life to and fro.

Across The Sky

A summer storm
comes raging through
across the sky
that once was blue.
The rain falls down
on every sight
within the day
and summers night.
Thunder’s roaring
speaking loud
across the sky
with clouds a shroud.
Lightning streaking
at a glance
across the sky
that seems to dance.
The minutes ticking
seem to say
across the sky
is a rainy day.
With each moments
lightning bolt
across the sky
is a roaring jolt.
Raindrops coming
from the sights
across the sky
with sound and lights.

Beyond Perception

Some sights seen
might twist and turn
to what our brain
will not discern.
Beyond perception
we might see
what our brain
does not agree
and those times
we might be found
to seek to find
what’s fact and sound.
Yet some moments
that appear
might be right
not thought so clear.
Beyond perception
lives a place
sometimes doubtful
face to face.

a moonlight night

Times remembered

The Whitest Days

Those winter days
that I remember
still burn bright
a snowy ember.
The whitest days
that I recall
came a few days
after fall.
The beginning of
old winters ways
to expose
the whitest days.
Snowflakes falling
to the ground
the whitest days
are surely found.
Scenes as blankets
to and fro
the whitest days
are winters snow.
Then the blessings
come in sight
to then delight.
Silent blessings
have a voice
snowflakes falling
to rejoice.
The whitest days
of joyful true
are Christmastime
for me and you.
With the magical
Christmas snow
the whitest days
bring HoHoHo.
Santa’s sleighbells
in the night
the whitest days
bring much delight.
Then those stories
read and heard
of dear Jesus
word for word.
Our dear Savior
from above
the whitest days
are filled with love.
Lights found blinking
twinkling true
display auras
oh so new.
The whitest days
of Christmas flavor
come from Jesus
Lord and Savior.
So now find
God’s wondrous ways
throughout time
the whitest days.

Ventures Of A Smile

Amongst ones frowning
smiles exist
sometimes as a
moment’s mist.
Ventures of a smile
can begin inside
that ones so often
just wanna hide.
Many are afraid to
show how they feel
as they continue
to always conceal.
Ventures of a smile
so many need to see
to then find their own
through times misery.
Show ones your smile
and a heartbeat might find
ventures of a smile

Sometimes A Day

Sometimes our problems
are just but a thing
sometimes a moment
a touch out of swing.
Sometimes a day
is only a sight
found as a turnstile
not seeming so right.
Yet many doorways
that we walk on through
are just a pathway
that we need to do.
Sometimes our verdicts
are not very clear,
because we’re still viewing
from our yesteryear.
Often a moment
is just but a way
needed for growing
in sometimes a day.

Painted With Love

Time tells a story
of a passionate one
that is Lord Jesus
God’s True Only Son.
Even the present days
display His Heart
that is found with us
a great work of art.
God gave us Someone
to forgive of our past
and is there always
with His great contrast.
He is The Painter
the artist Divine
that loves us dearly
no matter our sign.
Jesus will help us
to find who we are
painted with love

A Silver lake

Upon a lake
of shimmering hue
I saw a sign
reflected true.
A silver lake
with sunshine bright
shows of ripples
silver sight.
Then as waves

Scenes of beauty
come alive
a silver lake
where waves arrive.
Time then passes

Today’s memories
might be a tad out of sync
due to misperceptions.

Beyond a shadow
lies a pattern time has made
that we might not see.

Love has emotions
that are distinguished wrongly
as ones will rush it.

Noticing a star
gives life to the galaxy
that your mind perceives.

Various people
will only live for themselves
not knowing friendship.

An unopened door
still holds mysteries inside,
but enter at risk.

A storm that blows through
might leave us its memories
found in destruction.

When acting stupid,
expect others to agree
if they don’t know you.

Distinguishing summer
is easy to do most times
when winter arrives.

When heartbeats collide
the passed will become lesser
as life becomes new.

Mornings own sunshine
might be hidden behind clouds,
but still be shining.

The wants of ones greed
will dig them many deep holes
if allowed to buy.

A simple notion
can become a great journey
if it’s not whacko.

Our ifs,  ands and buts
can evolve into destruction
if the truth is dead.

Behind every thought
is a passageway of time
that might not work well.

Mundane emotions
can make ones think you don’t care
as life supersedes.

Unwanted actions
can often end in anger,
so take heed your  stride.

The center of time
brings the minutes into sight
counted as seconds.

Using ones for gain
will only divulge your heart
and find loneliness.

Space with its starlight
holds many different things
that we cannot see.

Answers to questions
often end with more questions
as life moves along.

Counting your blessings
will make you grateful for God
as you kneel in prayer.
