Because The Clouds

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Last week wasn’t too bad.  It’s getting colder with every
tick of the clock though LOL.  Today’s high is supposed
to be 57 F degrees which right now it is 55 F degrees at
4 PM.  Tonight’s low is supposed to be 36 F degrees and
that tells me that wintertime isn’t too far away.  It’s a bit
cloudy right now,  but it’s supposed to clear up in a few
hours.  LOL I don’t see it happening though,  but it might.
I have the boys with me again as we congregate in here
which is the warmest room of the house due to our PC’s.
Our computers and monitors put out a lot of heat hehehe.
Milo has stationed himself once again right beneath me
in a trusting manner believing that I won’t roll over him
with my chair hehehe.  I have to keep looking down to
see where his body parts are before I move hehehe :).
Benny has left the room to head to his lookout station
which is sat upon his favorite recliner LOL.  If he starts
barking at every little noise again I might have to bring
him back in here :).  He’s over anxious for his mom to
come home and Judy might not be home until late tonight.
Yep,  she’s at her sisters house taking care of her mom
until Trudy gets home from work.  Milo just got up and
headed to the bedroom and laid down in one of the dog
beds in there.  I guess he got tired of me nudging him
to make him move hehehe.  At least now I don’t have to
worry about rolling over his tail or feet :)  With my heavy
butt it would be a like a steam roller squashing him LOL.
Benny was just raising a ruckus in the living room.  He
thought he heard mom LOL.  It was just the neighbors.
I let him look to see and he shut up hehehe.  It’ still
cloudy as all get out :).  I don’t think the clouds are
gonna go away hehehe.  No matter,  I don’t mind a few
clouds.  They’re decor for the sky.  Judy and I stopped
at Tim Hortons and got us some sandwiches the other
day.  UGH the bread was old and both of us had a hard
time eating them.  We ended up giving some to the dogs.
We won’t be stopping there again for sandwiches and
that’s for sure hehehe.  We might give their ice cream
and donuts a chance one day in the future though,  but
for now we’ll stick to Klondike bars and Dunkin Donuts
being that the Houlton Farms Ice Cream shop will be
closing in the next week or so for wintertime.  We can
still drop by there and get us a treat if we so desire
until then LOL.  We both got a parfait the last time we
went and they were so yummy :).  We only stop there
maybe two or three times a year.  It’s one thing we do
for a special treat.  I’m going to go and search the web
to find out when the fall colors for up here should be
starting so Judy and I will know when to go for our
little Fall drive for some pictures.  I’ll probably do the
search this evening after I get done with all of this
mess hehehe.  I have to keep standing up and walking
around due to my back and legs aching,  so it might
take me a while to get this written hehehe.  It’s still
cloudy outside and it’s almost 6:30 PM hehehe.  Those
clouds are gonna have to do some trucking if they’re
gonna be gone by tonight,  but as I said,  “I don’t think
it’s gonna happen hehehe”.  I just went and took a few
pictures of the sky because the clouds have got a sort
of pinkish hue to them.  Milo followed me to the front
door and then back in here and is once again lying in
the floor behind me LOL.  Benny wanted to go outside
so I let him out.  I’ll check on him in a little while,  but
I think he wants to sit on the steps and wait for mom :).
Milo is still not hearing too well,  but I’ve got a loud
voice/mouth hehehe and he can hear me.  It’s part of
growing old I guess. I myself can’t hear thunder out
of right ear and my left ear is getting weak.  Judy and
me will have to start sign language or do as we do now
and that is point and do a lot of hand gestures hehehe
of course that’s after the fact that we still can’t quite
understand what the other is saying.  Yes,  she’s a tad
deaf too and that’s where the fun begins hehehehehe.
So Milo probably hears us,  but maybe more like what
the Peanuts Gang hears from the grownups which is
Wah wah wah,  wah wahwah wah wah wah hehehehe.
I guess that’s the levity in it all.  Sometimes it just
doesn’t pay to cry LOL.  Hehehe who’ll hear you :)?
I thank God for giving me this sense of humor,  but
I think Judy could do without it LOL.  Naw,  she likes
it,  but I’m sure it does get on her nerves from time
to time.  No matter,  God gives us all a way to deal
with our problems,  but many times people will just
decide to lie there and cry rather than to simply do
something about it,  or to maybe find a smile on the
brighter side of life through the clouds of gray.  Often
it’s only our viewpoint that perceives the sadness and
not the actual moment.  Let God help you to find the
rainbows in the storms and see the beauty through it
all.  Many think that death is the end,  but it’s only the
beginning of a never-ending story that is in Heaven.
Our loved ones aren’t gone.  They are watching over
us always as spirits from Heaven no longer confined
by flesh and blood and ailments they may have had.
I talk to my dad and many others always even though
I can’t see them.  I know they are watching over me as
well as many angels.  Find peace through God and His
Son Jesus Christ and you will never be alone.  You’ll
always have help coming from Heaven.  Now I believe
it’s time for me to be taking my little venture 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 lil
place of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found me a halfway
decent title around the mid part of my rambling and
it looks as though I haven’t used it yet,  so here goes
nothing hehehe and maybe so LOL.

Because The Clouds

The days of gray
with clouds of rain
are overhead
but don’t complain.
For those days
of cloudy skies
might just have
a great surprise.
A picture or two
that they portray
in those scenes
of clouds of gray,
because the clouds
might form a view
that gives way
for a sky of blue.
Then so white
they might be found
from you there
upon the ground.
God’s The One
that paints this sight
beyond the gray
with clouds of white.
They are there
like fluffy shrouds
the sights attained,
because the clouds.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope that you liked the poem and
maybe even my rambling hehehe.  I just went to see if
Benny was ready to come in and he ran right in.  If there
had been some snow out there,  he would of wanted to
stay outside and play in it hehehe.  I’m sure that he will
be all ecstatic when the snowflakes commence.  He’s our
little snow dog.  Milo was getting to where he didn’t mind
it too much last year,  so who knows,  he might find that
he likes to play in it as well,  OK maybe not as well,  but
maybe a little hehehe.  He’s an old man and Benny’s still
a pup or so he thinks hehehe.  They are both in here and
they are in a playful mode wanting my undivided attention.
LOL they can be so silly sometimes :).  They’re both just
staring at me from either side of me.  Yes,  that makes it
a tad hard to concentrate LOL.  Benny is now licking my
leg trying to get my attention hehehe.  Sheesh,  these
boys are a mess.  I’m sure that they want me to feed
them,  but they have dried food in their pans if they’re
hungry.  They don’t care much for dried food,  but when
push comes to shove,  they’ll eat it hehehe.  I’ll feed
them their favorite food (Ole Roy Meatloaf) in a bit.
I like for them to eat the dried food,  because it’s good
for them and when I hold out on feeding them,  they’ll
eat a little of the dried LOL.  Ya gotta out think them :).
Of course,  they do have us trained well hehehehehehe.
So who out thunk who?  We can’t help it,  we love our
boys.  So I reckon I need to be putting the brakes on
before I get into full rambling mode again hehehehehe.
With that said,  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 1 of them being sort of
Christmassy.  I also wrote a poem about Judy and I
and one about Benny and Milo :) and for all of my
haiku lovers out there I wrote 22 more haiku.  I hope
you find one or two of either or both that you like :).
Now with that said :),  I reckon I need to be searching
for that not so elusive off switch,  but not before I wish
you a most wonderful weekend or what ever is left
of it and a truly blessings filled week.  Now,  where
are ya hiding at ya ornery little off switch varmint?
Oh,  OK,  so I guess I’m not supposed to see you as
you stare at me from across the room in the TV screen.
Well surprise,  I saw ya,  being that it’s not even on.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S.  Judy came up with many of the titles for me
to use.  It gets hard coming up with new titles that
I haven’t already used when the number of poems
I’ve written exceeds 8000 hehehe.  I don’t like to
have poems with the same titles,  but I have in the
past accidentally repeated a few titles LOL oops.

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

Looks Of A Sky

Sometimes as bluish
and sometimes as grey,
the skies up above us
will change day by day.
Often some clouds will
bring some designs
found in the sky above
from time to time.
Then found at evening
is moonlight and stars
the looks of the sky
with Venus and Mars.
Many times even
the sky will expose
scenes so transfixing
as a pink colored rose.
Sometimes the changes
will sweetly reply
with I am Lord God’s work
as looks in the sky.

Circles And Squares

We’ve all got differences
circles and squares
which many think of
as this way not theirs.
Outwards appearances
only show true
what that the flesh is
showing on you.
Yet beyond outside
they might then expose
a heart full of passion
not seen in the clothes.
Sometimes ones insides
might hold many things
such as the answers
of so many dreams.
So don’t let eyesight
be what that compares
what that’s on inside
as circle and squares.

The Wheel Of Life

As we roll onwards
as husband and wife
we are each sharing
the wheel of life.
Finding our footing
through turmoil’s deplore
the wheel of life shows us
some peace to explore.
Often a doorway
will expose some rain,
but God sends us rainbows
to help with the pain.
We each make mistakes
as a husband and wife,
but there is still true love
on the wheel of life.
Forgiving each other
as each day moves on
God gives us prayerful
in each mornings dawn.
Then the wheel of life
rolls on in its way
as true love continues
to surely display
Finding some potholes
in footsteps of time
we can move onwards
with lessons to find.
Love brings us chances
through God’s Holy Light
for us found together
on the wheel of life.

A Place In The Sun

As seasons are changing
the new is begun
find some more days
place in the sun.
Some days as cloudy
with rain falling down
and other days seen as
some snow on the ground.
With every morning
the seasons display
a place in the sun
with each times array.
Some found with dew drops
and others with ice
displayed as seasons
of life’s apple slice.
Cut up so nicely
as times song and dance
a place in the sun
gives each one a chance.

A Dogs Story

Little paws running
seeking to play
there’s a dogs story
in their little way.
Two as dear brothers
yet not then at all
sometimes with toys
in a friendly dog brawl.
They’re often sleeping
so close side by side
then when awakened
are found in a stride.
Then as these doggies
are wanting to eat
they are just noisy
and wanting a treat.
Dancing and barking
while trying to say
we want some treats
right now and today.
Then we will later
head out to the field
to let them run wildly
with minutes instilled.
Two little brothers
seven years apart
each day together
are God’s work of art.
Prejudice thinking
doesn’t live inside
these two little dogs
of a dog story ride.
They are true brothers
of different families
together Lhasa Apso
and Poodle Pekinese.

Looking For Christmas

While the days move on
I find I’m in thought
that of sweet Christmas
which isn’t store bought.
Looking for Christmas
in my snowy dreams
falling from the sky
in fluffy white streams.
All of my memories
surely come alive
looking for Christmas
in wanting revive.
Sometimes I’m finding
my own searching ways
looking for Christmas
in nows summer days.
Pictures of Christmas
live deep down inside
painting some new days
on a sleigh ride.
Looking for Christmas
is something to do
when I am sitting in
moments so blue.
Christmastime seems to
bring me a smile
that seems to help me
all of the while.

Many Debate

One persons thinking
might not be as yours
found as a river
that differently pours.
Many debating
what others should be
shows some discretion
from what others see.
Some stories written
are just of ones view
not found including
what’s of me and you.
So many people
will just live a lie
while they’re debating
what is wrong or right.
Often ones judgment
is found on blind hate
as they were brought up
and many debate.

A Friends Love

Without any friendship
our lives would be bland
not having anyone
to hold our hand.
That’s why the friendship
needs God above
to bond relationships
just like a glove.
For a friends love
will be there for you
even when bad days
come into view.
Having a true friend
is greater by far
as he or she then
shines like a star.
Holding your hand when
you are in need
a friends love is best
most surely indeed.

Scratching The Surface

Below what we’re seeing
might not be the same,
for scratching the surface
might not explain.
Maybe the insights
that lie below view,
might just be made up
by someone like you.
Scratching the surface
might slowly bestow
some bits and pieces
of what that’s below.
For if you scratch on
deep throughout time
you might find truly
what’s on someone’s mind.
So don’t go judging
what you think disgrace,
for you might not of
seen their true face.

I Can’t Perceive

With many blessings
I can’t perceive
how that so many
just don’t believe.
With every heartbeat
a miracle grows
yet oh so many
will sort of suppose.
I can’t perceive
how many get by
while living always
with only a lie.
Many will say that
they don’t believe
simple while saying that
I can’t perceive.
Heaven awaits us
even though true
we might this moment
not see the view.
Our own perception
is that found at heart
so I can’t perceive
how ones can’t impart.
Life is a journey
throughout history
and I can’t see how
so many can’t see.
For I can’t perceive
is what many say
when they see us kneel down
to Lord God and pray.

Haiku
for Sept 13,  2014

Life is a mystery
with its day to day turnstiles
that open and close.

Looking for moonlight
might display quite a few stars
amidst your searching.

Now is a story
that is written throughout time
with good and bad days.

Sometimes the verdict
describes lesser as better
when lesser shows more.

Living on the edge
could end in much devastation
you weren’t prepared for.

As storm clouds gather
they might give false impressions
of raindrops to fall.

Beyond yesterday
our journey to tomorrow
begins with today.

Fragments of our dreams
might come alive in our minds
and then in our view.

Peaceful emotions
bring sunshine from cloudy skies
through a little prayer.

Angels from Heaven
might be loved ones that passed on
and watch over us.

As minutes tick on
we might miss so many things
within the seconds.

The sinking of ships
might be caused by opened mouths
that will not shut up.

While we move forwards
we might leave some things behind
that might be needed.

Nighttime comes quickly
as wintertime gets closer
and summertime fades.

Autumn brings colors
of red,  orange and brown
as the seasons change.

Windows we look through
might not show the true beauty
if they are dirty.

Our after affects
could reflect on some others
in good ways or bad.

A bird in the sky
flies with internal mapping
of where it’s to go.

A search of true love
could find you much destruction
if you look blindly.

Mornings come alive
with the nights recollections
of lessons we learned.

A liars choices
often backfire on them
as the truth is seen.

Flowers fade away
as wintertime comes knocking
with snowflakes to fly.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s a nice day today.  Right now at 2:40 PM it’s 69 F degrees
and according to my weather program,  it’s supposed to stay in
the 60’s for at least 9 more days.  Tonight’s low is supposed to
be 38 F degrees.  We took Milo back to the vet Saturday and
she didn’t even look in his ears,  but just said he’s getting old.
Oh well,  Milo can still hear a little bit if I raise my voice.  I’ll
still continue putting ear cleaner in his ears.  It can’t hurt.  Heck,
it might even help.  It reduces risk of infection,  loosens wax
and debris,  soothes with aloe vera and may reduce ear odor.
The ear cleaner antiseptic is for dogs and cats,  so it’s all good.
Benny and Milo are lying on our bed watching cartoons.  Right
now they’re watching Garfield LOL.  They look so sweet just
lying there side by side.  Milo has gone to sleep,  but Benny
is still watching TV.  Judy is doing her regular weekly thing.
She’s over at her sister’s house taking care of her mother
while Trudy goes to work.  Yep,  it’s pretty much the normal
for here nowadays hehehe.  Benny stood with me at the door
as we watched Judy back out of the driveway and wave at
us :).  We’ve been trying to make a point of taking them and
us for a walk out in the field at least 4 days a week.  Benny
loves it.  Milo on some days will often start chasing Benny
and he looks so cute with his ears flopping up and down.
Milo just woke up and came to tell me that he needs to go
potty,  so I’ll be back.  Ok,  he’s done.  Benny went outside
with him,  but he preferred to stay outside for a bit and sit
on the porch.  Milo is pretty much always ready to come
back in.  He’s not much on staying outside.  While we were
at the vet Saturday we had her clip their toe nails and give
Benny his distemper shot.  Milo’s up to date on all his shots
until February.  We finally finished trimming their hair up.
By wintertime it’ll be all grown out again being that they
don’t shed.  OK,  so Benny sheds a little,  but Milo doesn’t
shed at all being he’s a Lhasa Apso.  Judy’s started getting
her teeth worked on.  The dental bill is high,  but it’s worth
it to make her feel better about herself.  I’ve gotta take
care of her and the boys.  I love them bunches.  Maybe one
day I’ll be able to get my dentures repaired,  but that will
be maybe a long time down the road being that we’re not
made of money LOL.  It would be nice if we could afford
dental insurance,  but that’s life.  We did fill out a form and
they accepted us to pay 20 percent of our bill leaving us
with 80 percent,  though it would be a bit better if it had of
been visa versa LOL.   Oh well,  a little is better than not
at all.  Last Monday we went over to Judy’s nieces house
for a cookout.  A lot of the family was there.  It was a nice
day.  The rain held back until we were done and headed
home hehehe.  There were a few there that took the ice
bucket challenge.  One girl got the ice bucket challenge
when she wasn’t looking hehehe.  Marissa got drenched.
We would of caught it on camera if Judy or I had been
facing that direction or better yet,  known ahead of time
about it hehehe,  but then that might of given Marissa
a clue and she would of maybe run for the hills LOL :).
Milo has figured out how to roll down the back window
in the car so he can look out hehehe.  He does it every
once in a while when he wants to look outside.  Sort of
like when we got home from the vet Saturday,  Judy
stopped at the road in front of our house so I could go
and check the mail and when I came back to the car I
saw Milo with his little nose propped on the window just
watching me while Judy was laughing at him :).  She said
when I got out of the car,  he wanted to watch me and
so he hopped up to the window and hit the button rolling
down the window so he could see better.  Our car has
tinted windows LOL.  I just went to check on Benny and
he was ready to come back inside.  Milo saw him walk
in and jumped off of our bed and came running.  They
both followed me back in here wanting treats.  I gave
the little quackers some duck jerky hehehe.  Well it
looks like that satisfied them for a little while.  Milo’s
now lying in the floor beside me and Benny headed off
to his lookout headquarters on the recliner in the living
room hehehe.  There’s not much else going on around
here.  It’s looking like summertime is on its last leg,
at least it does up here.  Soon the snows will begin and
many will start bickering about it just as they do about
the heat.  It seems mankind is never truly happy LOL.
There’s always something that will seem to rock the
boat.  It’s when we finally accept things how they are
and look for the rainbows,  that the other won’t look so
bad.  BUT,  we are all guilty of every once in a while
or for many,  most of the time,  looking and seeing but
only the bad times and complaining.  Today why not
try looking passed the bad times and focus of the good
times.  Of course we each have to acknowledge the
bad so we can attempt to correct it,  if it’s possible,  but
we need to learn to accept what we cannot change and
try to be happy.  Let God help you with dealing with
all of the hard times and let Him walk with you in the
good times.  Find strength through Jesus to help you
to make a better tomorrow and find the joy in today.
Sheesh hehehe,  Milo is snoring BIG TIME.  He’s
sleeping good now.  He was having trouble getting
comfortable on the doggy mat bed so I went and got
one of their favorite doggy blankets and laid it on it
and that did the trick :).  We love them little boys :).
Thank You God for allowing us to be joined together
as a family.   I’ve had many dogs in the past and they
have been the best of friends and comfort.  Their
loss of life is always saddening,  but I firmly believe
that they go to Heaven just as we do and are waiting
for us with their tails wagging profusely.  The love
never dies.  So,  I guess it’s time for me to begin my
little journey back through all that I’ve written here
to see if I can find a good word or phrase that I can
use for the title for today’s brand new poem.  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 that I haven’t already used,
so here I go.  I hope it makes sense LOL.

Learn To Accept

When time is filled with
havoc and pain
learn to accept some
less to complain.
Sometimes our problems
are not all that bad
if we look backwards
at all that we’ve had.
Often our problems
are not changeable
or at least not by us
but others are able.
Learn some acceptance
of now and agin
with lessons you’ve learned
from where you have been.
Sometimes our problems
bring struggles inept,
so often it’s better
to learn to accept.

Ok,  so there ya go.  This might make more sense to a few
going to AA or NA.  Yes I used to go many years ago.  Yep
my sobriety date is June 11,  1990.  It helped me to find my
footing without alcohol and just a few months later I was able
to quit smoking.  Though after about 4 or 5 years I ceased
going to AA,  I still have the lessons I learned.  I found my
higher power in Jesus through His Father.  I saw where He
had not forsaken me,  but He was waiting for me to do all
that I needed to do to get me where I needed to be.  Thank
You God for not giving up on me :).  Yeppers,  I had a lot
of Hell to go through to get me to where I was willing to
let go and let God.  So before I begin rambling again LOL
I guess 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 3 of them being sort of Christmassy.
One of them is about my Paw Paw and I.  We used to
spend many a night just fishing and floating in his boat
on Lake Tawakanii in Texas. Those were some great
times in my life that I’ll never forget.  Grandmother and
Paw Paw were like second parents to me.  Grandmother
is still alive.  She’ll be 107 years old September 20th :).
She made the best fried apple pies YUMMY YUMMY.
Anyways,  it seems I have strayed away from what I
was supposed to say hehehe.  So,  I’ve told you about
my poems,  so I guess I’ll tell ya now that I once again
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.
I hope you find one or two of either or both that you
like.  I hope my rambling didn’t put ya to sleep hehehe.
So,  now 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 truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now to
find that not so great at hiding off switch hehehehehe.
Aw for Heaven’s sake,  couldn’t ya at least of tried
to hide LOL.  Standing right there in front of me with
a grimace on your face doesn’t constitute hiding LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce
and also Benny and Milo :)

P.S.  I also had a great birthday last Sunday.
Judy and I went to the Travelers Truckstop
when she got home and we pigged out :)
I had Haddock and Shrimp,  YUMMY

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe :)

When Then Arrives

Often so many
will say now and then
to wait until sometime
seems better for them.
Then they discover
that then is in place
the right time so clearly
was found face to face.
Yet when then arrives
the waiting game finds
so many indecisive

For when then arrives
it might be the time
to let God to guide you
with His love Divine.
Allowing His blessings
to live and breathe true
when then arrives then
found within you.

Links Of Chains

Our connections
you and me
are found throughout
times history.
Links of chains
might need some oil
as minds together
of distant soil.
Rusty thinking
thereunto
links of chains
might go askew.
Leaving tread marks
in the sand
while connecting
where they stand.
Links of chains
of many souls
often shatter
others goals.
Don’t let links
to rust and break
and find you stood
in life’s Earthquake.

When Winter Begins

Minutes tick on
to autumns end
then there’s winter
around the bend.
A few snowflakes,
then some more
when winter begins
to let them soar.
The season brings
some cold and white
when winter begins
each day and night.
Many people
hate the season
with pure coldness
as the reason.
But so many
fail to see
Christmas comes for
you and me.
Fluffy snowflakes
then are found
landing softly
on the ground.
Painting blessings
in the snow
when winter begins
found to and fro.

A Saddened Smile

A persons face
not true to see
a saddened smile
might surely be.
Found as empty
sort of style
many have a
saddened smile.
Yet some people
have no choice
a saddened smile
is their true voice.
But so many
simply show
a saddened smile
as all the know.
It’s what’s behind
that saddened smile
that describes
what times compile.
If you have some
hidden pain
find a smile
of joy to gain.
See the blessings
all the while
to help to lose
your saddened smile.
We all have sadness
surely true,
but there’s goodness
yet to view.
A saddened smile
of days gone by
can be happy
if you try.
Let God help you
find a smile
of a much more
joyful style.

A Night On The lake

The younger of years
with Paw Paw and I
a night on the lake
brought moonlight to shine.
Our own reflections
as ripples delight
a night on the lake
was found in moonlight.
Him and I fishing
as waves lapped our boat
we continued fishing
while safely afloat.
The night air was sweet
as breezes blew in
a night on the lake
with my very best friend.
Him and I together
would look up and gaze
a night on the lake
on those sweet summer days.
My Paw Paw and I
went many a time
to fish on the lake
which seemed so sublime.
We had not a worry
with morning to make
as him and I fished on
a night on the lake

I Love you Paw Paw and I miss you.
We’ll fish again in Heaven.

A Time For Healing

When things are bad
and there’s no smile
a time for healing
needs compile.
Let your heartaches
find some peace
as your bad times
find release.
A time for healing
comes in place
with God’s blessings
through His Grace.
Don’t let sadness
become you
a time for healing
needs your view.
Find through Jesus
hope to gain
a time for healing
to attain.
Then let Him to
fill your heart
with His blessings
to impart.
Let His love to
help you view
a time for healing
thereunto.

Wings

The flight of birds
up overhead
spread their winds
so fast they sped.
Flying on
their wings design
headed to
their place in time.
Wings of feathers
wind beneath
fly so fast
they’re there so brief.
Headed onwards
to their home
or temporary
place to roam.
Then those wings
will fly them back
with a chirp
or maybe quack.
South and north
they fly each year
as seasons change
how they appear.
Wings return
when winters gone
found to see
a spring days dawn.

In Winters Wake

The weather changes
hot to cold
in winters wake
as it grabs hold.
Oh so chilly
each day seems
found within
our Christmas dreams.
Yet a fire
warms the bones
in winters wake
as fall’s dethroned.
Scattered snowflakes
fall and land
in winters wake
where many stand.
Christmas moments
come alive
where a snowman
does arrive.
Lights so pretty
fill the view
in winters wake
red,  green and blue.
Many colors
ones partake
with Christmastime
in winters wake.

A Hidden World

A winter scene
that times unfurled
might disclose
a hidden world.
A magical place
where life collides
a winter scene
with snowy rides
A Christmas moment
surely seen
a hidden world
as many dream.
Times remembered
of a place
a hidden world
with a smiling face.
Those memories
inside your mind
a hidden world
will surely find.
Childhood days
that you recall
a hidden world
with a bouncy ball.
So now remember
oh so sweet
a hidden world
that times accrete.
Gathered by
your memories
a hidden world
of deep blue seas.
All those times
that brought a smile
the hidden world
will help awhile.
Yet don’t live
always unfurled
deep within
a hidden world.
For right now
needs you so true
to do the things
you need to do.
Find that Christmas
in your heart
and make today’s
a work of art.
Christmas blessings
live and breathe
if you’ll only
just believe.
Don’t let doubt to
drowned your soul
a hidden world
shows Christmas gold.
A hidden world
of you and me
needs uncovered
then to see.
Allowing Christmas
then to grow
maybe with
some Christmas snow.

Deep Blue Seas

While waves are crashing
on our shores
we often hear some
past folklores.
With deep blue seas
of days gone by
our lives move on
until we die.
Our hearts find moments
echoing true
some deep blue seas
of me and you.
Our own shadows
times record
deep blue seas
of just reward.
Yet we often
do not claim
the deep blue seas
we did attain.
Sometimes journeys
far and wide
leave us empty
deep inside.
Then those times
of deep blue seas
truly show
what time agrees.
It’s those moments
that we need
to begin agin
with planted seed.
Changing daily
with each choice
with deep blue seas
of better voice.

Haiku
for Sept 6,  2014

In but a moment
our lives will display shadows
of our yesteryears.

Todays choices
are often just disasters
needing rethinking.

As many move on
parts of them get left behind
in others lifestyles.

Many leave their lies
as the only information
about who they are.

Looks from another
usually say a lot
without any words.

Our own emotions
tend to lie from time to time
causing us much grief.

A page in our life
contains many of our thoughts
that many misread.

Discipline from God
might seem to be tremendous,
but we are much worse.

Living in the past
could prevent you from growing,
so live in today.

Without yesterday
today has nary a chance,
for lessons are learned.

Seasonal thinking
creates today’s excitement
for what that’s to come.

Autumn leaves will fall
when wintertime comes knocking
and snow starts to fall.

As rivers will flow,
so will the lives of many
maybe changing course.

Looking for flowers
might expose quite a few weeds
that look like flowers.

Expecting good deeds
could find you just awaiting
for good in return.

Beyond our eyesight
are things we might hear and smell
and know much better.

Minutes tick onwards
as days and weeks pass us by
leaving our shadows.

Nows after affects
will sometimes seem quite awkward,
but maybe be right.

Our doors and windows
open and close with new things
to see and to do.

A dogs forgiveness
is greater than that of ours.
It carries no grudge.

Taking precautions
might become our own hindrance
preparing to much.

Love in its fabric
is sown together in time
with threads of Jesus.

Shimmer Of Sunlight

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope your week and weekend were well.  A new week is
in the making hehehe.  Of course tomorrow,  many won’t
go to work being it’s Labor Day.  Judy and I will be doing
as always being we’re both retired.  The weather hasn’t
been too bad lately.  The temperature has been going up
and down a bit,  but nothing drastic.  We’ve been worried
about Milo being he’s lost his hearing,  but I have been
putting animal eardrops in his ears to flush them out and
his hearing is coming back.  He can hear me and is now
on our bed watching Pink Panther cartoons hehehe.  He
seems to know that I am trying to help him,  so he doesn’t
raise too much of a fuss when I doctor his ears :).  He’s
our oldest boy and we love him and Benny just like our
children.  LOL we went for a walk in the field the other
day and when coming back home,  he started running
for our neighbors house that also has a white SUV LOL.
I tried to get his attention by yelling his name,  but he
couldn’t hear me,  so I had to run and try to get him to
see me and then he saw our SUV and realized he was
headed the wrong way.  Yet,  now after doctoring his ears
when I call him,  he comes,  but his hearing is still very
weak.  I think he has a build up of ear wax or something.
No matter,  if it doesn’t get much better,  we’ll take him
to the vet again and see what she has to say about it.
Ok so what else is going on around this place other
than the regular stuff.  Judy’s over at her sisters house
taking care of her mother as she does every Sunday.
Not much change there.  Right now I’m trying to avoid
rolling over Milo’s tail being he has parked himself
right freaking under my chair AGAIN hehehe.  Ok,  so
he has finally moved a bit and relocated his tale LOL.
Now I can continue writing hehehe.  There’s a lot of
clouds over our area and it looks like we might get a
little rain.  Right now at 2:30 PM it’s 73 F degrees.
It’s supposed to be in the mid 70’s for maybe the rest
of the week which isn’t all that bad :).  Next week it
might start getting a bit cooler though.  We might get
some rain tonight and on into Wednesday.  I’ve always
said,  when it stops snowing up here,  the rains begin
and of course visa versa LOL.  It rains on some days
that there isn’t even any rain in the forecast hehehe.
The same with snow LOL.  So we’ve come to expect
the unpredicted :).  Believe it or not,  I’m ready for it
to snow.  Of course I know that after a few months of
it I’ll be sick of it,  but I always look forward to the
first good snowflakes.  If Benny could talk,  I’m sure
he would say the very same aside from the fact that
he NEVER gets tired of snow hehehe.  When it all
starts melting away,  he will be seen in search of a
little snow to sit and play in LOL.  He’s just a little
silly,  but then so am I hehehe.  Like father like son.
Milo on the other hand could care less about the
snow.  He does though get out and play in it from
time to time,  but not anything like Benny and me :).
So before winter gets here,  we are waiting for fall.
Judy and I love to go and take pictures of the fall
colors wherever we can find them.  We usually have
a lot of colors to take pictures of right outside our
front/back door being our house is facing the field.
Yeppers even the snow scenes are magical as the
snow on the distant trees shimmer in the sunlight.
In any case,  we both like to take pictures.  I might
like to just a tad bit more than Judy though hehehe.
Oh yea,  there’s one thing that’s new day and that
is,  it’s my birthday.  I turned 58 today.  LOL it
sounds like I went bad huh!  I turned.  Anyways,
Judy won’t be home until around 9 or 10 tonight
so me and the boys will celebrate together.  Judy
and I might find something for us and the boys to do
to celebrate when she gets home.  We might don
the party hats LOL.  This morning I made us some
EGGO’s and sausage for breakfast before she
headed out to take care of her mom.  Judy helped
me fix breakfast by getting out some plates and
all :).  It’s not like making EGGO’s and sausage is
hard LOL.  Ya just need a toaster and microwave :)
and of course some butter and syrup to put on the
waffles LOL.  So that was pretty much our morning
before she headed off into the mornings sunrise
in our galloping steed the Phantom hehehehehehe.
I almost heard her exclaim,  Hi Ho Phantom and
away LOL.  Naw,  but really she did back out of
our driveway hehehe.  Benny and me watched as
she drove off.  The boys have gotten used to her
weekly schedule.  Benny doesn’t raise a fuss like
he used to :).  BUT,  when he hears the car pulling
in the driveway,  he goes ballistic and I don’t even
have to look to know that Judy is home hehehehe.
Yep,  we live a sort of repetitious life up here.  Not
much changes except the date LOL.  Oh yea,  and
the TV programs that we like to watch hehehehe.
We do like to watch our TV programs together :).
It’s not the greatest life,  but it makes us smile.
God managed to find two people from across the
map of 2100 miles and put them together.  Love
knows no distance.  Judy and I do have a few bad
days,  but who doesn’t!  Life is about the good times
and the bad,  for the bad times make the good times
that much more exciting.  Remember,  if you’ve
never been sick,  then you don’t really know what
it is to be well.  You learn to appreciate a breath
of air,  or a sky of blue even more so when you
have been sick for a while.  Look passed the bad
times and find the good that’s exposed.  So many
blessings go unnoticed until we have experienced
life without them.  Don’t let life pass you by without
taking the time to see and smell the roses.  Ok,  so
I guess it’s time for me to be taking 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.  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 good title near the first of my rambling and now
after checking I see that I have not used it YET.
And so here goes nothing hehehe.  Maybe so LOL

Shimmer Of Sunlight

With every morning
comes shimmering light
after the darkness
found deep in the night.
A shimmer of sunlight
comes shining on through
when morning wakes up
to greet me and you.
With every shimmer
of sunlight that comes
the morning gives us
what nighttime succumbs.
Within each minute
of ticking times way
a shimmer of sunlight
will welcome each day.
Scenes found so wondrous
as God’s Holy Hue
a shimmer of sunlight
is for me and you.

Ok,  there ya go.  I know it’s not much,  but I did my
best hehehe.  I started to write a birthday poem,  but
thought to myself,  Hey,  it’s my birthday,  somebody
else write it LOL.  Yea,  I know,  it ain’t gonna happen,
but the doors open hehehe.  So,   what else is there to
tell you that I failed to mention in my rambling section?
Hmm,  can’t think of nothing.  It’s not raining yet,  but
it looks like it could any time now.  Milo’s still lying in
the floor,  but he has moved over a bit which gives me
a little room hehehe.  Benny is in the living room sat
upon his favorite recliner guarding the house while he
waits for Judy to come home.  He’s got quite a long
wait ahead of him LOL.  It’s only 4 PM and she might
not get home until maybe 9 PM.  So,  we’ve got quite
a lot of guy/Animal time until then hehehe.  I want
to ask for some prayers for my good friend Jennifer.
She is having health issues that are wearing on her
from the removal of cancer a while back.  Jen,  God
is in control.  Just do your best to follow the doctors
advice and leave it in God’s Hands.  I love ya gal :).
Ok so I guess 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,  10 more poems with
one of them being sort of Christmassy.  I actually
wrote 11 poems,  being I got inspired by one of our
old photos of me kneeling down in our yard filled with
daffodils back in May of this year hehehehehehe.
Also,  one of the poems is to Judy.  Yes,  of course
I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out
there.  I hope you find one or two of either or both
that you like and take with you in life.  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 or what’s left of
it and a blessings filled week.  Now,  where is that
off switch trying to hide this week,  or more to the
point,  not trying too freaking hard to hide hehehe?
Aha,  I think I’ve spotted you ya little varmint :).
Trying to hide in Milo’s hair might of worked if
ya hadn’t been making him itch and me seeing you
trying to dodge his paws/toenails hehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce
and of course Benny and Milo :)

Now on with the poems and haiku
10+1 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe :)

A Sweet Field of Style

With every dandelion
of a yellow paradise
I see so clearly
their beauty precise.
Painted as morsels
for my eyes to see
now unto then
through my history.
Lifestyles of yellow
with grass to compile
finds now my eyesight
a sweet field of style.
Described in my minds eye
while knelt on my knees
I see the beauty
as yellowish seas
A sweet field of style
that Heaven has sent
has a so wonderful
yellowish tint.
Seasonal pages
turn one by one
a sweet field of style
found under the sun.
Scenes mesmerizing
a wonderful while
I am found kneeling in
a sweet field of style.

Highs and Lows

When in the whirlwinds
of troublesome days
many will find they’re
lost in a gaze.
The highs and lows
that many perceive
are often doorways
that timeframes will weave.
For with the moments
that come into view
the highs and lows will
be there so true.
Sometime it’s us that
see things so wrong
when it seems low
what’s high and so strong.
Trees of perception
branch out and sway
the highs and lows
of day after day.
We are the seers
sometimes as we’ve chose
while we are finding
our highs and lows.

Morning Dew

The dawning of summer
comes at a glance
bringing my heartbeat
into a trance.
The birds singing sweetly
of the new day
is with some dew drops
found on display.
The days enhancements then
glimmer and shine
while all the morning dew
sees the sunshine.
Welcoming morning
with dew drops detail
makes all the others
to surely set sail.
Tree limbs a swaying
in morning times breeze
paints the existence
of birds in the trees.
Scenes oh so magical
come into view
with the enchanting
sweet morning dew.

It’s Just A Color

Our pigmentation
with only a sight
shows ones discerning
what’s wrong and what’s right.
It’s just a color,
not what’s on inside
for we all have blood
with flesh then applied.
All of our choices
while looking around
might find many colors
yellow,  white,  black and brown.
It’s not a bad thing
that makes us this way,
for we’re all human
in life day to day.
It’s just a color
that many might see
while not discerning
they’re like you and me.
So put those colors now
out of your mind
and let God help you
see what’s best to find.
Brothers and sisters
please find now some peace.
Let’s let God help us
to make hate decrease.

Time For Healing

As time passes on
we might leave a trail
found with our footprints
in every detail.
We might find anger
in the days remembered,
but we just need to
make it dismembered
There’s a time for healing
in minutes of life.
A time we are needing
to let loose of strife.
Find peaceful meadows
of God in your heart
and let Him help you
to make healing start.
Don’t let your passed days
of anger live on.
There’s time for healing
in each mornings dawn.
Yesterdays anger
needs rest now to find,
so let Lord Jesus
show you peace of mind.
We all have passed days
not so appealing,
but now with Lord God
there’s time for healing.
Found in a prayer
with blessings galore
a time for healing
will then restore.
Giving you peacefulness
found in a prayer
there’s time for healing
with God’s love and care.

Roses

Love of some roses
will flourish and grow
showing us beauty
that some never know.
Roses of people
and places we see
often display as
what’s you and me.
Yet many people
only see weeds of time
not finding roses
of any design.
We need look harder
to see passed the sad
and see all the beauty
of which to be glad.
Roses remembered
from times long ago
might make today’s to
shimmer and glow.
So many roses
that blossomed so great
can help us see passed
some weeds now to date.
It’s what’s remembered
of rose moments places
that often gives us
the smiles on our faces.
Traces of heartbeats
roses so sweet
show us the blessings
that timeframes accrete.

Tomorrows Snow

Beyond what’s now summer
is a season I know
found in the presence of
tomorrows snow.
My own recollections
of wintertime dreams
flows down like snowflakes
in white windy streams.
Every single minute
my minds eyes remember
brings forth a portion
that’s found in December.
So many footsteps
in snow driven days
show all the footprints
of wonderful ways.
The Christmas memories
of times long ago
are coming alive in
tomorrows snow.
Tomorrows in counting
with passionate style
brings forth the paintings
of winters turnstile.
Christmastimes shimmer
and Christmastimes shake
now is inside me
with joy to partake.
White all around me
as snowmen will grow
is in a dream of
tomorrows snow.

Awakened

Time is awakened
is each day moves on
then there are moments
that then they are gone.
Lessons are counted
awakened by few
seen as some doorways
much better to view.
Some find awakened
the truth that’s exposed
found in the lies that
their self will imposed.
Awakened are many
that learned the hard way
finding their journeys
a bit of dismay.
So now awakened
are you seeing clear
what you’ve mistaken
for your better year?
Look now and see now
what’s better to do
when then awakened
with Lord God in you.
All of the passed days
of self will run wild
can be the lessons in
nows new born child.

Winds Found Blowing

The trees are swaying
there and to
winds found blowing
where they blew.
Pictures changing
with each breeze
winds found blowing
all the trees.
Now the clouds are
floating by
winds found blowing
them up high.
Every moment
finds a place
winds found blowing
face to face.
Finding breezes
in my mind
winds found blowing
time to time.
Now those breezes
are now growing
as the doorways
winds found blowing.

Always There

This love that lives
inside of me
will always find
your deep blue sea.
This smile I have
with love and care
for you inside
it’s always there.
I might not show
the smile outside,
but you can find it
deep inside.
I often frown
with pain I feel,
but it’s what
I can’t conceal.
But you my dear
I’ll always care
for my love is
always there.

Haiku
for Aug 30,  2014

When guarding your heart
you might prevent the right one
from entering in.

Living on eggshells
keeps your life filled with worry
that might need cracking.

When leaves are blowing
the wind might of picked a bit,
but it might be good.

Many a storm cloud
will come in your direction,
but just few will rain.

Life is a mystery
as many will find true love
and other times friends.

Lessons in a storm
teach to not frown all the time,
for smiles grow rainbows.

Deciphered friendships
will often show what is true
and what’s just a lie.

Long ago moments
might become our only sight
if we only dream.

Past unto present
finds a journey of footsteps
leaving their imprints.

Summertime’s presence
comes with some clouds and sunburns
on sandy beaches.

Changes come daily.
but many we never see
until we’re ready.

Looking for beauty
might cause you to not see it,
because it’s inside.

True happiness comes
with the acceptance of God
found in your choices.

Loss of your self will
would make you just a robot
that God does not want.

The winds of time blow
bringing us storms and rainbows
within their own time.

While many just stare
there are others that respond
with good and bad voice.

A child’s Christmas dreams
come alive with some snowflakes
and old Santa Claus.

Left over heartaches
can become loads of baggage
that prevents true love.

An angel by morning
will glisten in the sunshine
with peace found with prayer.

So many people
will say that they know better
when truly they do not.

Painting a picture
finds choices in the brush strokes
that may be unclear.

Without some truthful
our lives cannot be happy
for facades will fade.

The Middle Part

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Last week was fairly nice as was this weekend.  Milo had
a spell of bad health this week,  but he’s doing much better
after us taking him to the vet and her giving us some meds
to give him.  Yep,  Milo is back to his old self.  I think his
arthritis was giving him a bad time.  It gives me a bad time
every day :).  Like father like son hehehe.  We ain’t getting
any younger hehehe.  I’ll be 58 next Sunday and Milo will
be 10 years old Oct 31 (Halloween) and he’ll be just about
56 years old for his breed in human years which is 2 years
younger than me.  So he has a right to have a few aches and
pains hehehe,  but his little brother Benny turned 3 years
old last July which is around 30 years old for his breed mix
in human years.  He still acts like a pup hehehe.  They do
love each other.  Benny was worried about his brother this
week when Milo wasn’t feeling well.  You could see it in
his eyes.  But,  we got Milo to the vet and he’s back to his
old self now.  Sheesh,  the cost of a vet bill is more than
a freaking doctor LOL.  It costs us $140 dollars just for
that visit and of course the medicine she gave us for him
to take.  That’s life,  but we’re relieved to have our little
Milo back to his old self no matter the cost.  You can’t
put a price on love.  I’m just glad we had enough money
to pay the bill hehehe.  We pooled our cash together and
managed to pay it LOL.  Judy’s over at her sisters house
again today taking care of her mother while Trudy goes
to work.  Benny and Milo are here with me for another
Sunday guy day hehehe.  After I finish writing,  I think
we’re gonna take a little field trip outside and get some
exercise.  I might decide to do it before I finish hehehe,
who knows.  Benny goes ecstatic when I let him run
wild in the field hehehe.  He only goes out there,  when
we’re with him.  He knows better than to go out there
without us the same as Milo.  I imagine when it starts
snowing and all,  I’ll have to dig us some little trails
to go walking in hehehe.  I did last year,  but not as
many trails as I am wanting to do this year if I’m able.
Last winter I had to go outside and dig them a few
potty trails so they could get away from the house to
go and do their business hehehe.  This year I want to
shovel us a little walking trail so we can still go for
walks.  It’s hard for their short little legs to maneuver
the deep snow hehehe.  Benny though gives it a try.
He jumps through the snow like a little rabbit hehehe.
Milo will try to bulldoze his way through,  but often it
doesn’t work hehehe.  Winter’s not too far away and
we’re trying to get ready for it,  by putting a hundred
dollars on heating oil every month,  so that when we
need it,  it’s paid for.  Of course,  we might still run
out before winter is over just as we have in previous
winters,  but we have our little radiator heaters that
pull us through if it’s not too bad.  Benny’s our little
snow dog.  He simply loves the snow LOL.  It’s hard
to get him to come inside when there’s snow on the
ground.  Anyways,  that season is yet to come,  for
we still have a small amount of summer to go through
and then a smaller bit of fall.  Milo is lying down in
the floor right beside me.  Benny is in our spare room
lying on the futon guarding that end of the house LOL.
Today’s supposed to get up to 80 F degrees,  but time
will tell.  Right now at 12 noon it’s 77 F degrees and
partly sunny or partly cloudy.  Whichever hehehe :)!
By the middle part of the week the temperature is
supposed to start dropping again to the mid 60’s or
thereabouts.  I think I’m gonna stop here and take
the boys out for a walk.  I’ll be back (in the best
Arnold Schwarzenegger impression I can do) hehehe.
We’re back!  I just gave Milo his medicine and he’s
done for the day.  Now it’s back to writing.  It was
a little warm outside hehehe,  but not too bad.  The
boys got a good walk.  Though in Benny’s case RUN.
I even got me a little exercise.  It’s good for all of
us.  It’s 79 F degrees now at 12:30 PM,  so it might
make it to 80 degrees if it keeps pushing.  Judy made
some Velveeta macaroni last night and I think today
before she gets home,  I’m going to cook up some
hamburger meat to mix in with it along with maybe
some catsup.  I’m not a fan of Velveeta hehehehe.
She asked me if I wanted to do that last night,  but I
wasn’t in the mood to cook hamburger meat being it
was getting late.  No matter,  I’ll do it in a bit.  LOL
I think Milo misses mom.  Judy should be home in
a few hours Milo.  try to find something to do in the
mean time.   Hehehe like he understands anything
I’m saying.  But they do understand,  wanna go for
a ride LOL.  Benny goes ballistic and is bouncing
around the room just screaming/whining when those
five words are mentioned hehehe.  Milo shows us
in his own little calm way,  by wagging his tail and
by most times being the first one out the door and
in the car hehehe.  Benny has FINALLY after him
watching Milo for a few months figured out how to
get in the car.  We kept waiting for him to notice
that Milo always jumps in the floorboard and then
up into the back seat.  Benny kept trying to jump
from the ground up the the seat which in our new
car is quite a distance higher than it was in our
little red Mazda :).  A couple of weeks ago we
bought a Eureka Airspeed Exact Pet vacuum and
the belt snapped on it yesterday when I was using
it LOL.  So,  I went to the Eureka site and found
the belt and it cost $3.50 or thereabouts,  but the
shipping cost 7 dollars LOL.  So when we have
some money again,  by the 3rd of September,  I’ll
buy a couple of the belts.  If the shipping is gonna
cost that much then make it worth my while I always
say hehehe.  Plus if the belt snaps again,  I’ll have
a replacement belt already,  but hopefully it last
at least a little longer than for two uses hehehehe.
We still have our old Bissell upright vac,  but it
doesn’t do dog hair too well.  Though Milo doesn’t
shed,  but Benny leaves little clumps of hair here
and there that look like cotton hehehe.  I think
it’s the Pekinese in him.  He’s half Pekinese and
half poodle which makes him a Peekapoo hehehe.
Milo’s a Lhasa Apso which is a breed that doesn’t
shed.  They may be different breeds and 7 years
difference in their ages,  but they act like they’re
brothers and they truly love one another.  Milo
will often go looking for Benny if he hasn’t seen
him for a bit.  If Milo went outside and Benny
went out with him,  but didn’t come back inside
when he did,  he will go scratching at the door
in here and pacing around in worry until we go
and let Benny back in.  Of course Benny isn’t
always ready to come back inside,  so we will
holler FOOD and he’ll come a running hehehe.
Yep,  they’re silly.  Judy’s youngest daughter is
moving back up here from southern Maine today.
Then we’ll get to see her more often along with
seeing her son and Mandy’s kids (our grandkids)
more often.  Mandy,  Judy’s oldest moved down
here from Northern Maine about a month ago
or so.  We always enjoy seeing the kids.  There’s
not much else going on up this ways.  Just the
same old same old.  Life up in these parts is sort
of quiet,  being we live out in the boonies hehehe.
Judy and I enjoy watching all of our favorite TV
programs together.  We might be poor money
wise,  but we’re rich in our blessings.  God has
kept His Mighty Hands upon us and given us
all that we need.  We do from time get a little
more than we need,  for God is good.  Only He
knows what’s best.  I thank God for giving me
such a wonderful life up here with Judy and the
boys.  I do though miss my family and friends
down south,  but God is always doing what He
knows is best for me.  Sometimes just allowing
me to experience my own self will run ragged,
because He knows lessons will come from it.
It’s my choice,  whether or not I decide to use
those lessons or to continue to make the same
mistakes.  LOL I almost rolled backwards,  but
fortunately for Milo,  I looked first hehehehe.
He’s lying right behind me on a leg of my chair.
Boy he’s trusting or brave LOL!  So I reckon
I need to be ceasing my rambling here and 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 lil place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I found a good title just a bit back in my
rambling and now after checking, I see that it
has not been used yet,  so here goes nothing :),
but I freaking hope not LOL.

The Middle Part

From here to there
of timeless travel
the middle part
will then unravel.
Showing pathways
there and to
where so many
winds have blew.
For beginning
journeys onward
the middle part
will climb aboard.
Leaving lessons
to attain
the middle part
might seem insane.
Yet of course those
times we’ve seen
might be nightmares
changed to dream.
For the middle part
gathers miles
then to there
as life compiles.
God gives blessings
from the start
to the end
and the middle part.

LOL,  I know,  the poem’s not that great,  but hey,  you
give it a shot and see what you come up with hehehehe.
I hope my rambling didn’t put you to sleep and you at
least understood the poem to a degree :).  I always write
what words come at that moment.   I never have a clue
of what I am really writing about.  It’s called automatic
writing.  Though often when I’m trying to write a specific
poem,  I will have to stop and think about it for a few
minutes.  It’s one of God’s gifts to me that I share with
you.  You might have a special gift from God that you
are unaware of at this point and time.  Some peoples
gifts don’t expose themselves until they are ready to
use them be it age,  maturity or timeframe in life.  Let
God guide you as you choose your pathways.  He will
give you signs of the wrong directions,  but often our
self will plays the culprit in getting us in places that we
don’t need to be.  That old WANNA FACTOR is a
a demon in all of us.  It’s one we need to take control
of and make better decisions.  Now,  before I begin
rambling again hehehe,  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
being another Christmas poem and one about Judy and
I.  I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there.  I hope you find one or two of either or both
that you like and carry with you in life.  Now,  I believe
I need to be searching for that dad burned off switch
that’s not so great at hiding hehehe,  but not before
wish you a most wonderful weekend and a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Ok,  where are ya hiding ya silly off switch????
I see ya you ornery thing.  You made a slight mistake
didn’t ya hehehe!  Climbing in my orange juice glass
became your folly as I can now see you holding on
for dear life to the edge of the glass.  Ok so out ya go.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S.  Oh yea,  my friend Jimmy Martin in Oregon
passed away Friday the 15th.  I didn’t find out until
a few days ago.  I’ll sure miss his emails.  He was
a very sweet guy and was a good friend of ours for
many years.  I’ll see you in Heaven when my time
comes to join you.  Come and visit us anytime.  You
are no longer confined by flesh and blood and you
are welcome in our home.  We love you Jimmy :).

P.S. yet again :) on a happier note
The brown dog under the table in the pictures
is our granddaughters dog named Peanut.
She looks a bit like Milo and Benny huh!
Of course,   you won’t see it if you’re not
receiving my stationery email hehehehe.

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

When Shadows Fade

As time moves onwards
and memories fail
the shadows of pictures
lose their detail.
As doorways we’ve entered
become just a phase
we might just recall them
as our learning days.
Temporal seasons
that one day has seen
might just become as
a momentous dream.
All of the windows
that we have looked through
might now be shadows
not found in our view.
Often our choices
of bad lemonade
in time are better then
when shadows fade.

Tomorrows Yesterdays

Now as today is
found here in view
tomorrow has not yet
really come true.
Changes from stages
we have yet seen
might be reverting
as life’s running stream.
Tomorrows yesterdays
change as we go
for when we get there
they might shrink or grow.
So if you’re worrying
about everything,
try to remember
what changes can bring.
Tomorrows yesterdays
seen now today
might just be worry’s that
don’t come in play.

Falling Through Time

Journeys we’ve hurried
might become bad
for we might find them
better not had.
Time displays things
that we shouldn’t do
yet in a hurry
we fell right through.
Falling through time
with footprints we made
we might just find
our life to degrade.
While seeing every
thing that we’ve done
falling through time
might show bad begun.
Don’t let your falling
to proceed that way.
Let God to help you
with your every day.

When In Fear

If your worries
overflow
learn through God to
let them go.
When in fear of
time yet seen
find some peaceful
God cuisine.
Let not worries
grow so large
that they one day
just take charge.
Find the lessons
growing strong
showing right ways
from the wrong.
Time has ways of
showing you
what that you are
needing do.
Lessons from nows
yesteryear
might just be now
when in fear.

Forever Love

Two hearts beating
become one
sounding as a
God filled drum.
Forever love
in streams of time
float on as a
heartfelt rhyme.
Forever found
is so sweet
Heaven’s blessings
none compete.
Forever love
is greater true
when it’s always
found with you.
Not allowing
weathered hearts
to become as
falling parts.
Forever love
is found forgave
still with love
for future days.
Finding heartbeats
two as one
beating love of
seasons sun.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

Sweet Return

Summer comes
and summer goes
then comes fall
with wind that blows.
Autumns colors
paint each day
then those leaves
are blown away.
After fall
comes wintertime
showing seasons
white sublime.
All the snowflakes
land in place
painting up
the Earthly face.
Then comes spring
as flowers bloom
April,  May
and into June.
Summers doorway
knobs will turn
giving us its
sweet return.
Many swimming
in the waves
of the coming
summers days
The sweet return
turns sour true
when the heat waves
then burn you.
Then it starts
as times attain
fall then winter
with spring rain.
The sweet return
of each day found
soon is weathered
time around.
For they each have
their own time
sweet return
of scenic sign
and we soon will
wish away
what we loved once
day by day.

Sounds You Hear

The dark of night
holds many things
sounds we hear
as running streams.
Sometimes sounds
are found unknown
yet in time
they’ve somehow grown.
The things beyond
our vision clear
might transpose to
sounds we hear.
While not knowing
what that’s heard
we might fear
a little bird.
The dark of night
makes many see
things that aren’t
reality.
Imaginations
surely thrive
making sounds
to come alive.
Don’t let darkness
bring you fear.
Find the truth in
sounds you hear

Wintertime’s Romance

The first seasons snowflakes
all fall from the sky
floating so gracefully
seeming to fly.
The wintertime’s romance
brings mounds of white snow
found in our doorways
seen to and fro.
It seems so magical
as it’s displayed
when Christmas comes
with a snowman that’s made.
A snow angel also
with wings oh so white
in Christmas snow
on a magical night.
Thoughts of dear Jesus
and Santa Claus too
become our foresight
of blessings so true.
Then in the midst of
the seasons attire
there are so many
found warm by a fire.
Watching and waiting
for joys song and dance
found within Christmas
wintertime’s romance.
The glimmers of peaceful
come over the land
while Christmas reminds of
The One oh so grand.
Wintertime’s romance
is greatest to view
when it has Christmastime
living in you.

Icicles Melt

Cold hearted people
will try to ignore
ones that are knocking
for help on their door.
Cold as icicles
just growing longer
some of them seem as
just growing stronger.
Yet surely prayer can
one day be found
icicles melting
their hearts all around.
It takes some patience
with timeless detail
to melt the hearts
that once were in Hell.
Yet,  surely God’s love
through knees found knelt
can make cold hearted ones
icicles melt.

Inner Ocean

With ocean waves
of hearts desires
the captions found
as one admires.
The inner ocean
deep and blue
holds the thoughts
of me and you.
With each wave
of timeless notion
there are thoughts
in inner ocean.
Deep with swells
of dreams and more
found upon
the oceans shore.
The inner ocean
thrives with peace
found through love
of God’s release.
Scenes transfixing
in the waves
the inner ocean
then displays.
Sights and sounds
that sway around
the inner ocean
comes aground.
Bringing dreams
reality
within the waves
of you and me.
Each interaction
shows so true
the inner ocean
sea of blue.

Haiku
for Aug 23,  2014

The passing of time
reveals misunderstandings
that later perceives.

Looking for answers
might pose a few more questions
instead of answers.

Morning finds many
with some leftover anger
they should of released.

Patterns are gateways
that many will keep using
even if they’re bad.

The length of minutes
is deduced by a person
and how good they wait.

So many shadows
are often found as objects
that are not alive.

Teaching a person
needs for them to want to learn
or it’s just a waste.

Losing perspective
on life that is before you
could cause your demise.

Wintertime’s windows
open up as autumn leaves
soon after summer.

Releasing anger
needs a healthy passageway
so not to explode.

Beyond what is seen
are things taken for granted
that could bring us smiles.

Flying through the air
a hummingbird flaps its wings
so small,  but can fly.

Seeing’s believing,
though true faith without seeing
brings God much closer.

Sunshine of summer
brings heat waves sometimes burning
that often leaves scars.

Ice crystals forming
on wintertime’s discernment
makes many feel cold.

The look of hatred
becomes a real ugly book
with pages ripped up.

God’s love’s unending,
but so many deny Him
by turning away.

Not knowing the truth
will often leave you with lies
that you have been told.

Finding butterflies
in the midst of summertime
makes the days brighter.

Searching for heartbeats
where there is only darkness
might produce sadness.

Today marks a time
that yesterday forecasted
maybe a bit wrong.

Sparkling dewdrops
give way to the days sunshine
as morning is gone.

A Comforting Feeling

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another week gone by and time for the return
of my ramblings and poetry LOL.  How have you been?
Judy and I have been doing fairly well.  The weather has
been sort of rainy.  Today’s high is supposed to be 60 F
degrees.  Right now it’s 58 F degrees at 12 noon.  Judy
is back at her sisters house taking care of her mother
as she does every Sunday.  Me and the boys are doing
as always hehehe,  just hanging loose.  They’ve gotten
used to her leaving every Sunday.  Benny doesn’t even
raise a fuss anymore and Milo just stays in his famous
sleep mode LOL.  Judy,  I and the boys have been taking
semi daily walks in the field for exercise.  It’s good for
us,  but the boys needed to get out and run wild a little.
Of course,  Milo just walked wild hehehe.  He only runs
for a brief.  Benny on the other hand has a blast darting
from here to there as he goes investigating.  Me and the
boys went out yesterday,  but being mom (Judy) wasn’t
with us then,  Milo kept trying to run back to the house
and I had to keep running to catch him.  I ended up with
having to put a leash on him and make him come out,  but
soon mom (Judy) came out and he was ready to walk with
us without the leash.  He loves his mom :).  I think he
just puts up with me hehehe.  Naw,  I know he loves me,
but he wanted both of us out there.  Benny was thrilled
to just be able to romp about in the field.  He doesn’t do
it if neither of us is with him.  He knows that he’s not
allowed to,  but when I head out there and say come on,
he’s struck with a state of ecstatic puppy bliss :).  Milo
though would rather just stay inside,  but he needs some
exercise which he doesn’t get while indoors hehehehe.
We carry our cameras along so we can get a few good
pictures as well as a few videos of the boys at play.  Yep,
we’re enjoying summer as it slowly fades away and yes
it seems to be coming to an end as each day goes by.
Tomorrows high is supposed to be 68 F degrees and
then the rest of the week in the low to mid 70’s which
is great in my book :).  I find myself getting antsy for
the first snowflakes after fall.  Also Judy and I always
try to set out on a road trip to take pictures of the fall
colors when they begin.  It’s always beautiful,  but that’s
still a couple of months away.  It’s 1 PM now and it’s 60
degrees with a rainy look and feel.  It’s not near what
I remember from the Texas summers that I have lived
through.  Yep,  it’s quite a change.  The hottest month
up here is July,  which we never saw much near 90 F
and that was just a couple of weeks.  People still keep
on asking me,  do ya miss Texas?  Yes of course.  I’m
a Texan,  but I don’t miss the heat.  I miss my family
and friends,  but at least we have internet and a long
distance telephone service.  Back in the olden days
if you lived just 20 miles away or more you would
not see the family except while taking a long wagon
ride.  You would send mail either pony express or by
telegraph.  So,  you see,  we’ve got it much better
than that.  Even now from the 80’s and 90’s we have
long distance telephone service that doesn’t cost
you by the minute as it did.  I know there are many
of you out there that remember those days well LOL.
When I was 12 and we moved to Wills Point from
Dallas,  we were stuck with a party line because we
were 10 miles out of town.  There was I believe
4 people on our party line,  maybe 5.  We all had
our own ring.  Ours was I think,  2 short rings hehe.
We had a busybody on our party line that loved to
pick up and listen to everybody’s conversations.
Me and some of my friends loved to mess with
her when we could hear her breathing on the line.
We would talk as if we were girls and rattle her
brain and then after a bit say OK you can hang up
now Mrs. Bynum and you could hear her hang up :).
Anyways,  I remember those days very well.  The
past has a way of leaving an imprint in my mind
and I remember it and often laugh out loud LOL.
There were some great times back in my childhood
and there were some times that were not so great.
It’s with that combination that makes life worth
living.  The surprises help to vanquish the boredom.
Of course,  some surprises I could of lived without,
but that’s life hehehe.  Living out in the country as
we did back then helped me to learn about myself
as my poetic side developed stronger.  I found that
I loved nature and enjoyed going exploring through
the woods.  So if you were ever wondering why it is
that many of my poems are about nature,  now you
know hehehe.  I see God’s Handy work in the clouds
above and the wealth of beauty on the Earth.  Trees
swaying in a breeze speak volumes of poetry to me as
do the flowers and other points of beauty.  It seems
that I see poetry everywhere I look.  In the grains
of a piece of wood or a footprint on a sandy shore.
God’s beauty is all around us just awaiting us to
take the time and see it and enjoy.  Far too many
people spend their time focusing on their cellphones
or just looking straight ahead and not having a look
around at what God has given us.  Sometimes the
beauty is hidden in the smallest of things and we
don’t find them important enough to look at,  but
that can maybe one day haunt them,  for some of
the smallest things in life become the greatest to
see.  Don’t let life pass you by without taking the
time to enjoy the small things.  You might find that
those small things will make you much happier by
far.  Yet when problems arise take care of them,
but don’t make mountains out of mole hills.  Life
is way too short to spend your time worrying about
every little thing.  Let God help you with your life.
If you lose a loved one,  remember,  they are not
gone,  but in a different form.  No longer contained
by flesh and blood.  The spirit lives on and they
often watch over us.  I talk to my dad every day
and at times I can feel his presence with me just
smiling big as he used to.  Often I can feel his hand
on my shoulder as I write.  It’s a comforting feeling.
So just remember,  life isn’t over just because the
physical body dies.  It just changes to a different
plane.  I know,  I too get sad at the loss of loved
ones,  mainly because I always want to be able to
call them on the phone or hold their hand,  but I’ve
been raised to know that I will see them again as
my time in this aching body comes to an end and
my life starts a new never ending chapter.  So,
with that said,  I reckon I need to stop rambling
and begin my quest back through all that I have
written here to see if I can find me a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title of today’s brand
new poem.  And so it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a decent title and it looks
like I haven’t used it yet,  so I guess I’ll see what
I can do with it.  Here goes nothing hehehe.

A Comforting Feeling

With loss of a loved one
life might seem to fail,
but it’s just perception,
and a change in detail.
A comforting feeling
brings me a big smile
when I think so Heavenly
God all the while.
Sometimes a loved one
will leave us alone,
while not realizing that
their love has grown.
Minutes might prosper
while turning to hours
then unto weeks with
our life’s disempower.
Yet when accepted
and finding God’s Grace
a comforting feeling
will grow on your face.
Learning that loved ones
are still all around
maybe not found in
our sight and our sound.
But with the passing of
loves ventured ways
a comforting feeling
in Heaven displays.
Look for their spirit
within me and you
and let them live on
in the things that you do.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope you weren’t put to sleep
with my rambling and you enjoyed the poem.  I have
a bit a sad news.  Judy’s nephew died yesterday and
she’s sad.  Put her brother Arty and wife Louise in your
prayers.  Also,  I have not heard from my good friend
Jimmy M in Oregon for a while.  He usually writes me
every week.  The last email I got from him said that the
doctors told him that he had only 4 to 8 weeks to live.
He has pancreas cancer.  Please put him in your prayers
as well.  I will miss him,  but he’ll be able to come and
visit us in his new unconfined form.  We love you Jimmy.
We love you too Arty and Louise.  Ok it’s time to move
off of the sad stuff and onto some other news.  Milo is in
the floor snoring and he sounds like a grizzly bear :)
He’s literally vibrating the floor hehehe.  Last night
after letting him out to go potty,  I was coming back
in here and in our dark bedroom he decided to stop
right in front of me and I busted my little toe hehehe.
It bled for most of the night and it’s swollen pretty
good now.  Oh well!  Anyways,  maybe Milo will
learn not to stop in front of me especially when he
is brown and our carpet is brown and the lights are
off LOL.  He probably won’t learn,  but I can dream
can’t I hehehe!?  Ok,  so I guess 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,
10 more poems with 1 of them being a Christmas
poem and another that is about Judy and I hehehe.
Also I wrote once again 22 haiku for all of my haiku
lovers out there.  I hope you find 1 or 2 of either
or both that you like.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to begin my search for that not so elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend and a blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  So where is that blasted
off switch hiding this time?  Oh for Heaven’s sake,
could you at least pick a hiding spot that is not
clear LOL.  Hiding behind my eyeglass cleaner
would of worked if in fact the bottle wasn’t CLEAR.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S.  Judy said she was gonna stop off and pick us
up something to eat in town before she heads home.
Hmmmmm I wonder what she’s getting us to eat?
Oh yea,  it’s 60 F degrees now and 3 PM :)

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe :)

Before Today

Tomorrows time
begins at glance
before today
and nows entrance.
So many doors
of now and agin
before today
is like the wind.
Blowing arrays
of choices found
before today
time goes around.
The shadows seen
each day and time
sometimes show
a moments rhyme.
All of the minutes
that now display
began their growth
before today.

Stormy Days

Minutes thunder
lightning too
stormy days
come into view.
Scenes displaying
sight and sound
stormy days
will come around.
Times partaking
might be seen
as a nightmare
not a dream.
Stormy days
of memories
sometimes seem
as deep blue seas.
Yet some storm clouds
will then cease
surely displaying
a moments peace,
as a rainbow
then displays
after all the
stormy days.

Left Turns Right

With up and down
then left turns right
as in and out
goes out of sight.
Things we see
in passing days
might seem black
but be just greys.
Left turns right
with minutes found
when confusion
looks around.
Found as hurry
seeks to find
left turns right
from time to time.
Sometimes now
is turned too quick
as left turns right
and makes us sick.
Don’t let moments
make you frown
when they turn you
upside down.
Find the joyful
in the sight
even when then
left turns right.

Seeking True

Love of life
is sometimes as
minutes seen
to come to pass.
Seeking true
those scenic days
many find some
wondrous ways.
Yet some people
only find
rhythms of a
troubled mind.
When they’re seeking
true their sight
things might go from
wrong to right.
Don’t let sometimes
troubled news
turn your days
to bitter blues.
For when seeking
true some love
let God give
from up above.
Don’t be found as
searching blind.
Seeking true needs
peace of mind.

The Bitter Miles

When looking back
on days gone by
the bitter miles
leave how and why.
Stressing viewpoints
time has shown
that then way back
were not known.
The bitter miles
of troubled days
might now have some
learning ways.
From the moments
we’ve been through
the bitter miles might
change their view.
Leaving lessons
found in sight
teaching you what’s
wrong or right.

As Christmas Comes

While summers heat waves
scorch and burn
the seasons passing
come in turn.
Soon then the summers
rise of fame
Goes right back from
where it came.
Then the autumn
colors bright
decorate each
day and night.
Winter then comes
to unfold
white snow falling
oh so cold.
Winters magic
then becomes
Jesus found
as Christmas comes
Painting in the
hearts of gold
through the stories
that are told.
Christmas lights are
hung in place
bringing smiles
so Jesus laced.
As Christmas comes
the music plays
telling of those
wondrous ways.
So if summer
makes you sad
look to Christmas
and be glad.

Morning Leaves

Morning comes
soon after night
removing all
it’s starry light.
Morning then
comes into view
sharing it
with me and you.
Morning leaves
as time moves on
leaving shadows
of its dawn.
With while showing
time agin
how our choices
do begin.
Morning leaves
while bringing chance
found as minutes
song and dance.
Morning gives us
ways to choose
better with our
win or lose.
Then as morning
leaves its mark
there are timeframes
to embark.

When Pages Turn

Our book of life
is often read
wrongly so
with thought you said.
Sometimes people
misunderstand
when pages turn
found not so grand.
Many are reading
what’s not understood
trying to find out
what’s bad or good.
They fail to see
the life written down
not understanding
your sight and sound
Yes oh so often
ones wrongly discern
what that they’re reading
when pages turn.

When Echoes Are Made

A lifetime of repeats
are lessons found laid
found as the stories
when echoes are made.
Learning time prospers
when time finds a clue
then no more clueless
is found within you.
It’s those found ignoring
those echoes of time
that will be found making
a similar crime.
Don’t let the echoes
of how.  where and why
to leave you found empty
with lessons run dry.
When echoes are made
they put forth a glow
teaching us lessons
we’re needing to know.
For without echoes
of yesterdays gone
we have no lessons
to better our dawn.

Footprints in Sand

On a beach faraway
there are footprints to find
found as a memory
inside of my mind.
Footprints in sand
as a picture time quest
the two of us strolled on
while seeking the best.
Searching for pictures
to capture on film
as we had many times
then and agin.
We often splashed onwards
while walking in waves
with footprints in sand
on those wonderful days.
Now they’re just memories
on a beach I remember
of footprints in sand
as a magical ember.
My thoughts are alive now
with us hand in hand
while walking together
making footprints in sand.

from Bill Pearce ME :)

Haiku
for Aug 16,  2014

Too many people
look for only the bad times
and don’t see the good.

Loves true description
will get misinterpreted
by desperate ones.

As summer subsides
it will slowly be replaced
by fall and winter.

Nighttime brings starlight
to glitter as decorations
in the sky above.

When a raindrop falls
it’s often joined by others
sometimes in puddles.

Nobodies failures
come without a few lessons,
so let them teach you.

Do your best in life
and regret will not haunt you
for sitting around.

Loss of a loved one
finds many with emptiness,
but spirit lives on.

Viewing a doorway
could bring you much confusion,
for some go nowhere.

A trains railroad tracks
might seem to go forever,
but then not at all.

Unconditioned love
comes no matter what you do,
for it is true love.

Life in the fast lane
can make you grow old quickly
leaving many scars.

Let love find your heart
through the blessings of Jesus
and life will find smiles.

Using poor judgment
on a hurried point and time
could end in despair.

Let a flower bloom
and it will show you great joy.
Pluck,  and it will die.

Many surprises
come as nightmares unwanted,
while others are good.

Beyond our eyesight
is a life that eludes us
that spirits exist.

Looking for starlight
could find you staring upwards
looking at the moon.

Windows of lifestyles
are often covered with dirt
so that you can’t see.

Journeys through mountains
leaves a rollercoaster ride
of destination.

When some clouds blow in
they also might bring some rain
to fall when ready.

Learning from others
makes your lessons easier,
but many don’t try.

Let A Raindrop

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It looks like summer is on a downhill slide now,  at least
up here that’s what it looks like.  We’ve been staying in
the upper 60’s to mid to upper 70’s for the past few weeks
and it looks like according to our weather forecast,  that
there’ll be more of the same.  Today’s high is supposed to
be 78 F degrees.  Right now at 11 AM it’s 74 F degrees.
I’ve been taking the boys out in the field in front of our
house to get some exercise.  They seem to enjoy it LOL.
It’s helping me too.  When we first got Benny and much
time afterwards,  we couldn’t trust him to walk with us
out there,  but now along side Milo,  he stays close and
doesn’t wander off to the woods as he did once before :).
When I said are yall ready to go back to the house,  it
was like a mad dash hehehe.  Benny took off and then
Milo was right behind him.  They looked so cute playing
all the way to the house.  I took a video of them and it
came out pretty good :).  I’ve already uploaded it to my
Facebook page hehehe.  Milo is lying in the floor right
now and Benny I’m pretty sure is lying on his favorite
recliner.  Although,  since we’ve gotten our spare room
cleaned out and made our futon accessible,  he’s been
found sleeping on it from time to time hehehe.  We’ve
gotten a little rain off and on as normal.  We might get
a little this evening,  but there’s only 10 percent chance.
My weather program shows a slight chance of rain for
Tuesday and then 40-80 percent for Wednesday and
Thursday,  but that can all change one way or another
at the drop of a hat.  So what else is going on around
here other than clouds,  rain and sunshine hehehehe
oh and yes Benny and Milo?  Well to be honest,  it’s
pretty quiet around here.  Or it would be :),  if Benny
would quit barking every time our neighbors come or
go or whatever LOL.  If it had anything to do with us,
then I wouldn’t mind so much hehehe,  but he’s gonna
have to get used to us having neighbors again LOL.
I guess we’ve been without any neighbors for so long,
he thinks he’s gotta protect all of the homes hehehe.
Yes,  that is good to a point,  but there is such a thing
as overkill hehehe.  Judy is once again over at her
sister’s house taking care of her mom while her sister
works her one day a week at WalMart.  I think the
boys have gotten used to her schedule.  Benny just
stood with me at the door and watched Judy back
out of the driveway and then he picked up where he
left off with his dentist stick hehehe.  Milo never
even got up from the dog bed in here and he’s still
down there snoring away.  After I finish writing this
I might take them out to the field with me again and
play to give them and me some exercise.  I’ve been
walking out in the field by myself for a long time,  but
just a couple of days ago started bringing them along.
Milo has come out with me a few times,  but Benny’s
first time was yesterday.  I think I’m going to try and
make it a daily thing of course up until it snows and
it’s too deep to walk hehehe.  Even then,  I might
make us a few trails in the snow that we can walk
in,  but that’s a few months away.  Right now the
sun is shining bright.  It’s 73 F degrees at 11:30 AM
and there’s a 5 mile an hour breeze blowing.  Not
too bad.  Milo was having an asthma attack just a
minute ago,  but I picked him up and calmed him
down so he could relax and breathe.  I have asthma
too hehehe.  Like father,  like son.  A lot of times it
just takes a little calming to help to breathe peaceful
again.  I have a respirator  that I use,   but haven’t
found one for a dog.  For that matter,  how would
you even get him to use it LOL?  Breathe in Milo.
No don’t try to eat it.  Let it go Milo,  it’s not a toy.
Do you see the aspect of that dilemma hehehehe.
Anyways,  he in time gets to breathing normally
and continues with whatever he was doing hehehe.
Right now he’s SNORING LOUDLY LOL.  I can
almost feel the floor vibrating hehehe.  My mom
told me that she’s ready for wintertime.  She’s tired
of the heat.  I wonder why :).  Today’s high in her
part of Texas is supposed to be 99 F degrees and
right now at 11:46 it’s 90 F degrees.  I know how
she feels.  I can still remember those hot summer
days,  but at least it seems the temps are staying
below the triple digits.  I told her,  she ought to
move up here hehehe.  She said,  don’t tempt her.
I said remember,  we often have months of subzero
temperatures with tons of snow to boot.  She said,
she hates the heat LOL.  Something tells me that
she would hate the cold much more while having
to deal with what we deal with LOL.  But if she
wants to move up,  there are places in town that
she can move to.  LOL I don’t think she could
handle living way out here in the boonies and
having to dig out her car every day.  I’m a little
different than her.  I prefer the cold to the heat
due to my health issues and plus I love to play
in the snow and take pictures of the snow scenes.
OK,  I’m a lot different than her hehehe.   Now,
what else is there to talk about?  I’ve taking a
lot of pictures of the scenery around our house.
Everything’s so green, it looks like it’s painted :).
I walked down to the river that is just below us
and I took a few pictures.  I also got some great
moon shots as well as more cloud pictures.  Yes,
I got many pictures of the boys :).  Did ya think
that wouldn’t happen?  Milo is getting more and
more affectionate.  He’s wanting me to hold him
almost as much as Benny.  It’s hard to believe
that Milo was ever not so cuddly.  He used to
hate being held hehehe.  Now,  when I put him
down,  he tries to jump back up in my lap LOL.
So silly!  I haven’t heard Benny bark in a while.
I better go check on him.  I’ll be back.  I’m back.
Benny’s sound asleep on his favorite recliner :).
I hope he’s resting up,  because after I finish
with this,  we’re going walking.  Yep,  another
trip out in the field.  When they get used to it,
all I’ll have to say is,  yall wanna go walking
just like when we say,  do yall wanna go for a
ride which after that phrase,  they both head
for the door and Benny starts whining hehehe.
Milo shows his excitement in a more dignified
manner hehehe.  When we open the door,  he
makes a mad dash for the back door of the car.
So,  when I get them used to hearing ya wanna
go for a walk,  I’m sure I will start getting a sort
of similar response aside from the car being the
point of journey hehehe.  We love our lil boys :).
Thank you God for the many blessings that we
receive and have received as well as the ones we
have yet to receive.  I can remember times long
ago in my past that I was not so thankful for the
things God had given me,  but now as I look back
I can see how that what He gave me,  was what
I needed,  whether I liked it or not.  Sometimes
being grateful needs be done even for the bad
times that you experienced,  for they are lessons
to help us grow.  Often the hard lessons will stay
with us longer than the easy ones.  Sometimes we
will forget the easy lessons and have to learn
them again and again,  but those hard lessons
will stay with us.  Don’t let life to turn you into
a miserable person.  Look for the rainbows
through the storm.  Let a raindrop not be a bad
thing,  but an enlightening one.  Yesterdays
troubles can be the builders for todays good
times.  Learn what not to say,  where not to go
and what not to do.  Use those lessons wisely
and tomorrow will be a better brighter day :).
Now,  I believe it’s time once again for me to
be searching through all that I’ve written here
for a new word or phrase that I can use as the
new 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 good title that I haven’t used
yet,  but now I’ve gotta see if I can put a few
words together and form a poem using it LOL.
Here goes nothing hehehe.

Let A Raindrop

When a storm cloud
rains on you
let a raindrop
change your view.
Search to find
a greater show
through the storm
a bright rainbow.
Let a raindrop
teach you well
how some problems
change detail.
Often struggles
give you gain
hidden in
the falling rain.
Sometimes storms
we’ve found succeed
are what all
we really need.
Let a raindrop
teach you true
what that you are
needing do.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and maybe even the
poem.  Before I get ahead of myself,  I want to wish
my granddaughter Sami a HAPPY 14th BIRTHDAY.
I sure wish I could be there and celebrate it with you
or at least give you a GREAT BIG HUG.  I love you.
Jayme,  I miss you.  It would be nice if yall could one
day come up and visit.  I know,  finances are really
tight.  Ours are too.  Judy and I love ya bunches.
Again,  Please,  continue to keep my good friend
Jimmy in your prayers.  We love you Jimmy.  Never
ever forget that my friend.  Ok,  so it’s gotten a little
warmer now.  It’s 77 F degrees right now at 1 PM.
Still,  not too bad hehehe.  I had to let Benny outside.
His barking was driving me crazy.  Our neighbor is
vacuuming their car and Benny thinks I need to
know about it LOL.  Milo’s still sleeping.  He’s a
sound sleeper just like his mom hehehe.  Benny
and me wake up for everything LOL.  Well,  it
seems like I might ought to stop here before my
rambling gears kick in again hehehe.  So,  I guess
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,  10 more poems with one
of them being sort of Christmassy and another
one about Benny and Milo hehehe.  I also once
again wrote 22 haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there.  I hope you find at least one or two of
either or both that you like.  Now,  I’m  needing
to try and find once again that (not so great at
hiding) 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,  now where’s that off switch attempting
to kind of sort of hide :)?  I think I see ya you
silly thang.  You’re really pushing the envelope
in bad places to hide LOL.  Hiding behind my
ESC key isn’t in my book even freaking trying.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce
and of course Benny and Milo “Woof Woof”

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

Sweaty Paws

Summers days
with oohs and ahs
are sometimes
with sweaty paws.
Our boys running
here and there
sweaty paws
without a care.
Those four legs
go running wild
sometimes as
a little child,
but our oldest
named Milo
sometimes runs
a little slow.
Sweaty paws
of summers days
finds our youngest
playing chase.
Benny’s younger
than Milo,
but their truly
barking bros.
They will sometimes
bounce around
making their own
barking sound.
Not the same breed,
no they’re not,
but they love
each other a lot.
They’re our boys
with little claws
found upon
their sweaty paws.

The Minutes

With only a moment
some minutes will pass
leaving things sometimes
out of contrast.
The minutes we count
are often so wrong,
because they are moments
that don’t belong.
The minutes we see
might be mere illusions
while only showing us
moments confusions.
So don’t let moments
to leave you found sad
for they’re just minutes
found sometimes a fad.
Yet sometimes moments
that the minutes disclose
show us the timeframes
we overexpose.
Leaving just a portion
of our reality
found in the minutes
of our history.

Tomorrows Dream

While now paints a view
in front of your eyes
you might find portions
of tomorrows skies.
Times yet to flourish
of things that we’ve seen
are maybe moments of
tomorrows dream.
Imagine you’re climbing
a mountain so high
that when you get there
you touch the sky.
Tomorrows dreams come
when doubt’s at rest
leaving us blessings of
moments filled zest.
Find now your hopeful
in tomorrows dream eyes
and let your blessings
to fill up the skies.
Find now through prayerful
a genuine smile
within tomorrows dream
God can compile.

A Hint of Winter

Within the glimmers
of summertime’s days
a hint of winter comes
found in a phrase.
Bringing along Christmas
with it’s certain scent
there’s a little portion
of a wintery hint.
Sometimes at nighttime
with it’s little chill
there’s a hint of winter
to surely fulfill.
Summers own pages
are turning with time
soon to be winter with
white snow divine.
Then the glow of Christmas
will light up the nights
with a hint of winter
and Christmassy lights.

So Many Lines

Some lines curve around
to make a few words,
while others just stand there
to spell a flock of birds.
So many lines
will just cross and mix
leaving some seemingly
just doing tricks.
Some lines form circles
to go where they go
while never ending
with their certain flow.
Sometimes the lines
will not look the same
connecting at corners
of an uneven plane.
Many times lines
will just be a view
seen from a distance
from thereunto.

Painted Skies

Skies of blue
with clouds of white
show me now
a wondrous sight.
Scenes of beauty
for my eyes
are found in
the painted skies.
Storms might enter
bringing rain,
but the beauty’s
still the same.
Changing daily
with each breath
the painted skies
shall never rest.
Bringing oceans
skies of blue
with some waves
a whitish hue.
Painted skies
are found each day
some to change
with clouds of grey.
Then the stories
for my eyes
are revealed
as painted skies.

A Can of Worms

A word we said
without a thought
a can of worms
might then be bought.
Making a day
much worse for you
the can you open
might go askew.
So don’t let words
of untamed ways
to bring to you
some saddened days.
Think it over
clearly now
before your words
just go KAPOW.
For so often
trouble turns
when you open
a can of worms.

When Summer’s Over

Days we’ve encountered
some too hot to breathe
many are found wanting
a simple little breeze.
When summer’s over
the summertime days
might within winter
have a much better gaze.
Yet now with summertime
many are sweating
while they’re just simply then
winter forgetting.
Winter brings snowflakes
and beauty divine
with also a wonderful
Christmassy time.
Then of course many will
lose track of days
while they are walking in
white snowy ways.
When summer’s over
so many forget
the best is to come
but surely has yet.
Don’t let the coldness
of wintertime’s scenes
to become all you think of
as a daily routine.
When summer’s over
then Autumn will show
fall colors growing
with scenes to and fro.
Then as the snowflakes
begin to fall down
a white snowy venture
will then paint the ground.
When summer’s over
look for all that’s good
autumn to winter
in your neighborhood.

Leftover Smiles

Often some sadness
will become found
as only all that’s
seen all around.
Some situations
might fill up your mind
with only sadness
and no good to find.
On those occasions
search mindful the miles
to find the flavors
of leftover smiles.
Try and remember
the laughter you saw
maybe on sometimes
joyful hurrah.
Leftover smiles can
blossom and bloom
if you will try to
set them in tune.
Sometimes a moment
of a silly cuisine
might give a laugh
if you know what I mean.

Joyful Sounds

Things we hear
on passing days
might turn out as
best soufflés.
Seasoned moments
time surrounds
as so many
joyful sounds.
Times we might not
think so great
might turn into
better fate.
Joyful blessings
come and go
sometimes leaving
us with woe.
Yet so often
leaps and bounds
lead us to some
joyful sounds.
Some with struggles
in their view
then some smiles come
unto you.
Joyful sounds
of God’s request
will become
our very best.

Haiku
for Aug 9,  2014

Shadows tell stories
of the actors in motion
leaving some questions.

The youth of today
will be tomorrows elders
so don’t look away.

Living in a shell
will prevent many lessons
that life will teach you.

God gives us choices
to either turn right or left
or pray about it.

Life is a turnstile
with a few squeaky doorways
that might need oiling.

Looking for true love
could find you a few lemons
amidst your journey.

Unsightly people
might hold beauty within them
that you might not see.

Within a tattoo
is often a persons thoughts
about who that they love.

Centuries of time
disclose decades of pathways
that we each repeat.

A leading person
could become someone’ downfall
due to ignorance.

Harboring sadness
prevents any happiness
to fully take hold.

Beyond tomorrow
holds the mysteries of now
that we did not see.

Changing surroundings
does not always work out well
for changing yourself.

Looks of some dewdrops
are found glowing in sunlight
sitting on flowers.

A persons heartbeat
is sometimes barely noticed
by ones prejudice.

A search of the truth
could display some good liars
that need exposing.

Too sheltered from storms
might prevent you from learning
as life moves along.

A book of knowledge
often gives too much info
for those that worry.

When time passes by
it paints a few portions
within tomorrow.

Glancing at beauty
is better than just staring
making ones nervous.

Written in the sky
are words of imagination
with painted details.

Long awaited moments
might turn out worse than first thought
due to your dreaming.

Admit That You’re Human

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Has it rained over your ways?  It’s rained a little in this
passed week,  but not much.  We might get a little rain
throughout the week,  but not expecting too much.  The
temperatures have been fairly nice.  Today it might get
up to 80 F degrees.  Right now at 11 AM it’s 71 degrees.
Not too awful bad!  The last few days I’ve been having
to sit here alone as Judy went to visit with her sisters
and cousins which are girls also hehehe.  Nope,  I didn’t
wanna get stuck in a room with a bunch of girl talk LOL.
Yesterday,  she went to her sisters house for a family get
together,  but my legs were hurting too bad to go due to
me being stupid and helping our neighbors move some
stuff,  which I will not EVER do again.  Long story,  but
my body is still recouping and I don’t feel that I was even
appreciated anyways.  OH well,  live and learn.  Judy is
over at her sisters house today taking care of her mom
again so that her sister can work her one day a week at
WalMart.  She should be home sometime this evening.
This passed week I’ve felt like a single man hehehehe.
Unfortunately I had no car to go anywhere or do anything,
because she had the car.  Our landlord is out in the field
trying to get his tractor fixed.  It quit on him a few days
ago with a LOUD backfire LOL.  It sounded like a gun
shot.  Anyways,  he’s gone again.  I guess it still wouldn’t
start.  Tomorrow,  Judy and I are gonna sleep in,  being
we don’t have anywhere we need to be.  That’ll be nice!
Milo is lying in the floor.  Him and Benny went with Judy
yesterday and they were pooped little boys from playing
with their many cousins when they finally got home last
night.  Benny of course has already gotten his second
wind,  but Milo’s an old dude and he don’t snap back as
fast LOL.  He’s like me and needs a little time to rest
and recoup.  There’s not much going on around this place.
While Judy has been gone,  I’ve been just goofing around
with my conga drums.  browsing the internet and watching
TV,  of course aside from helping our neighbors which
I have already mentioned LOL.  It sounds like Calvin got
his tractor up and running again and he’s back to plowing.
He’s a nice man.  Not the best landlord,  but he does his
best and that’s all that can be expected.  I just went to
see if Benny was ready to come in and he was hiding up
under our steps hehehe.  The tractor scares him.  Benny
came inside and Milo came to the door saying he needs
to go out.  LOL swinging doors.  He went and pooped and
came running back to the door because he was ready to
come back inside.  LOL back to the floor to plop down
and sleep hehehe.  There are two doggy beds in here and
he’s lying on the freaking floor LOL.  Go figure hehehe!
Oops,  Calvin’s tractor died again.  He might ought to
take it to a mechanic,  but then that would cost money.
I’m sure he’ll get it up and running again :).  I just gave
the boys some Bark’n Bac’n.  They’ve been real good
aside from Benny barking at our landlord while he’s out
there trying to get his tractor started again hehehe.  The
Bark’n Bac’n shut him up for a bit hehehe.  Now he’s up
under the coffee table in the living room gnawing on it :).
Now it’s on with the journal after of course I grab me
a another soda water (Mountain Dew).  OK got it!  Now
Milo is sitting right behind me just staring at me wanting
another piece of Bark’n Bac’n hehehe.  Nope,  you’ve
had two pieces the same as Benny.  Go and lie down now
and let me write.  He’s lying down now,  but still staring
at me hehehe.  I guess I’ll just have to try and ignore
him LOL.  As I said before,  there’s not much going on
around the Pearce’s Place.  We live a fairly quiet life
of course aside from us both being deaf and having to
turn the TV up full blast so we can hear it hehehe and
also from me ever so often jamming on my conga drums
to kill the boredom and they’re not that loud.  Nope it’s
a quiet life around here.  I would surely welcome a little
excitement from time to time LOL.  Judy and I might
one day soon take a little sightseeing photo drive and
even bring the boys along to get in the pictures :).  Yep,
it’s great that Judy and I enjoy a lot of the same things.
Not everything,  but then that would just be weird LOL.
It looks like I might have to do a little laundry and wash
some dishes in a bit.  It’ll kill the boredom hehehehe.
I hear our landlord out there again.  It sounds like he’s
got his tractor running again and gone back to plowing.
Yep,  it’s REAL exciting around here LOL.  It’s better
than nothing.  It’s gotten a little bit warmer since I began
writing.  Now it’s 79 F degrees.  That’s supposed to be
the high for today,  but we shall see hehehe.  I’m sure
it will vary,  because it went back to 78 degrees while
I was writing this LOL.  Thank God for the breezes
that come blowing in ever so often.  I often find myself
looking back in time wondering how I ended up way up
here and I can sometimes see how God intervened in
putting me where I needed to be.  I might not be happy
always,  but there’s no one that is always happy.  We all
have our bad days and what’s bad to you might be great
to another.  The owner of the problems will often deduce
the troubles that they have.  What’s hard for another,
might be easy for you and visa versa.  We often think
that we’ve got it worse,  but trust me,  there is always
someone out there that has it worse than you.  Just like
if you think you’re the best at something,  think again,
because there’s always someone out there that is better
than you at doing something.  Just be yourself and do the
best you can with what God gave you.  Don’t worry about
how great another person is.  You are often only seeing
the outer shell of who they are and not seeing what’s
thriving within.  Many will often try to hide their failures
that they’ve had for fear of being less than.  We’re all
going to make mistakes.  That’s a fact of life.  Get over
it.  Learn from your mistakes and grow.  Let God show
you the blessings that can come from learning.  Let your
ego have a rest.  Admit that you’re human and have made
a few mistakes in life and are still making them.  I know
I make mistakes every freaking day,  but I try not to
dwell on them,  but learn from them.  Let Jesus show you
His forgiveness as you learn how to forgive yourself and
others.  Today is a brand new day,  so don’t let mistakes
of yesterday to prevent you from growing today.  Now,
I believe it’s time for me to take a little trip back through
all that I’ve written and 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.  Hmm,
I think I found a good title that I haven’t used before,
but can I write anything that makes any sense using it?
That’s soon to be seen huh hehehe.  Here goes.

Admit That You’re Human

Don’t spend so much time now
just trying to be
without an error now
in history.
Admit that you’re human
and make some mistakes
as bakers make pies
when trying to make cakes.
Sometimes our failures
are better to find
when they give lessons
to then change our mind.
Admit that you’re human
as each day moves on,
for we all make mistakes
from dusk unto dawn.
Don’t let your failures
to make you insane,
for with many failures
there’s good to attain .
Look passed the lesser
and see what that’s good.
Admit that you’re human
just misunderstood.

LOL OK so there ya go.  I hope that made sense to you.
It makes sense to me :).  I’ve seen so many people that
refuse to admit they have ever made a mistake.  That in
my book is stupid.  Why try to hide your humanity?  I’ll
tell ya what,  I’ve made so many mistakes,  that I don’t
think a computer could keep tabs of them LOL.  If God
were writing them on a Holy chalk board,  He might end
end up with writers cramp :).  I am so thankful for His
Son that He gave to give forgiveness for all of our many
mistakes and sins.  I know through Jesus,  I have Heaven
waiting for me.  So I guess,  before I get back into Rambles
Ville,  I need to send out a special prayer request for my
good friend Jimmy in Oregon.  He has cancer and I’ve been
told he has but only 4 to 8 weeks to live.  Please put him in
your prayers.  I love that guy.  He’s been a friend of ours
for many years.  Hey Jimmy,  always remember,  God is
in control and no matter what,  (we will meet in Heaven).
Ok,  so I guess 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 being sort of
Christmassy and another one about Judy and me.  I also
wrote once again 22 haiku for all of my haiku lovers out
there.  I hope you find one or two of either or both that
you like.  Now,  it’s time for me to be searching for that
not so illusive off switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful weekend and a blessings filled week.  Ok so
where is that silly off switch hiding this week?  Hmmm,
I thought I saw movement behind my monitor.  I see ya!
That would of been a good hiding spot if you hadn’t been
leaning on the stand making it rock back and forth hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. One of the haiku is about our friend Robin’s
dog in Texas.  The dog’s name is Ginger and she
likes to talk on the phone or should I say growl :)

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

Scenes Forgotten

Times we’ve encountered
and things we’ve been through
are often forgotten
from here thereunto.
Things that we’ve seen in
the passed days of time
are often remembered
a bit out of line.
Some scenes forgotten
come flavorful back
with sight of pictures
that memories lack.
The years flow onwards
as timeframes display
some scenes forgotten
of some other day.
Often our heartbeats
will not remember when
those scenes forgotten
of time and again.
Yet it’s with pictures
of somewhere in time
that scenes forgotten
then come back on line.

Lesser is Better

Sometimes a little
is better by far
than that of whole lot
from near to afar.
Often our wanting’s
are not seeing right
for we might want things
in our mere excite.
Many times less than
is all that we need,
for it fulfills moments
to daily succeed.
Yet many people
still want so much more
when lesser is better
to fit through the door.
Life gives illusions
of what is much wetter
when it’s found sometimes
that lesser is better.

Dirty Windows

Surely sometimes
we look through
dirty windows
with our view.
Times distorted
through the glass
dirty windows
now and past.
It’s with cleaning
up your sight
that you might see
clearer light.
Dirty windows
can display
clouds of rain
on a sunny day.
Don’t let dirt to
cloud your view.
Clean your sight up
and see true.
Dirty windows
can become
only raindrops
in the sun.

Mornings Haze

Night will bring
a brand new gaze
found as often
mornings haze.
Sometimes sleepless
enters through
clouding up the
mornings view.
Mornings haze then
could turn bright
if the viewer
changes sight.
Letting not the
sleepless gaze
to allow the
mornings haze.
Find some peaceful
mornings hour
maybe in a
fragrant flower.
Look for blessings
here and there
then let haze to
lose its glare.

Looking Back Now

When clouds float by
they bring to mind
things remembered
time to time.
Looking back now
you might see
bits and pieces of
history.
Tomorrows journey
is found gazed
looking back now
quite amazed.
Things we’ve been through
made us strong
teaching us
what’s right and wrong.
Ages turnstiles
swings around
looking back now
town to town.
I myself see
where I’ve been
looking back now
and again.
I see journeys
footsteps made
looking back now
times crusade.
Aging footprints
I laid down
looking back now
turned around
bringing lessons
now today.
Looking back now
I’m OK.

The Oceans Waves

As waves roll in
upon the shore
a moments time
shows so much more.
Scenes uncovered
in my view
the oceans waves
of there and to.
Recollections
of those days
now are just a
photo phase.
Things we did
upon the beach
the oceans waves
were then in reach.
Now I view those
times we saw
as our favorite
times of awe.
We stood most days
in mornings sun
watching as the
days begun.
Picture taking
of our gaze
often of the
oceans waves.
The sounds of waves
just like before
gave us peace
upon the shore.
Now those days
are just a glance
the oceans waves
of times romance.

From ME Bill Pearce :)

A Single Thought

A single time
a single thought
brings to mind
a time that’s sought.
Simple choices
that we choose
become voices
win or lose.
A page that’s turned
of times belief
might discern
a moments grief.
Yet some seconds
minutes pass
ones might reckon
gone too fast.
A single thought
of times gone by
might ask questions
how and why.
Leaving pages
without answers
as some ages
moments dancers.
Dancing as a
single thought
that’s gone away
and best unsought.

Why Can’t Christmas?

As time goes by
I find my gaze
searching for
those Christmas days.
The Christmas lights
and whitest snow
that’s found with Santa’s
HoHoHo.
I ask myself
what can I do
to bring that time
right back in view?
Then I search
and try to find
Christmas found
in summertime.
Why can’t Christmas
live all year
bringing always
love and cheer?
Oh so many
lose its joy
as each minute
does deploy.
Why can’t Christmas
be each day
even when it’s
gone away?
It should live on
in our heart
as a daily
work of art
flavored with some
Jesus love
come from Lord God
up above.

Summers Breeze

While time drifts by
with summers breeze
it leaves it’s passion
in the trees.
Rustling leaves
of timeless days
summers breeze
goes on its way.
Scenes transfixing
day and night
summers breeze
will make a sight.
Trees seen blowing
to and fro
as the summers
breeze will blow.
Even the sounds
of it’s own ways
summers breeze
gives peaceful days.
Relaxing sounds
with rushing wind
the summers breeze
is my best friend.
It cools the days
with just a breeze
as it rushes
through the trees.

Life Is Short

Don’t worry about
those things that passed
for life is short
and things won’t last.
The days we’ve hurried
everywhere
we might find
too short to care.
Life is short
with burning fuse
so don’t burden
win or lose.
Just enjoy
the days you find,
for life is short
and passing time.
Let your days be
done the best
and then take some
time to rest.
Life is short
so don’t fall prey
to not enjoying
day by day.
Find the good things
in your life
and don’t be filled
with only strife.
Life is short
so find some good
doing what
you know you should.

Haiku
for Aug 2,  2014

As hearts are beating
there is life in a moment
that can come and go.

Someone’s single thought
could change the worlds perception
if it’s put to use.

Living in the past
will prevent you from growing
and moving forward.

A little puppy
finds ways of displaying love
in just a mere growl.

Doorways we’ve entered
might be filled with many things
never expected.

Time’s not just minutes
but the uncounted pathways
that we never saw.

Living for today
makes way for your tomorrows
either good or bad.

Postponing your needs
for unnecessary wants
could find you empty.

Becoming forgiving
will allow peace in your heart
as time moves along.

Searching for trouble
might find more than you sought for
and end in great pain.

Looks of a liar
might have unfocused eyesight
with truth found within.

Leaves on windy days
will dance within the sunlight
with rustling sounds.

Change brings new doorways
to either enter or not
with chance found in place.

Leftover values
can become wrenching onslaughts
that might prevent change.

When seeking revenge
be prepared for a downfall
you weren’t prepared for.

Sometimes tomorrow
looks best when you have rested
and not just worried.

Lines on some paper
show us where we are to write,
but some do not care.

Efforts of a dewdrop
find a resting spot in time
that shines in the sun.

Beyond memories
are the times we’ve forgotten
with footsteps taken.

Looks of some starlight
will twinkle in the night sky
with eyes watching them.

Meaningless chatter
will often drive ones crazy
until understood.

Streams of waterways
sometimes flow in a rainstorm,
but cease when it’s done.

Next Door

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope your passed week has been a good one and the
weekend hasn’t turned out too awful bad for ya either.
It’s been fairly nice up here with temperatures that
range from lower to upper 70’s.  It’s 79 degrees right
now,  but tomorrows high is supposed to be 71 F and
that sounds great to me.  I’m guessing that summer is
almost over with up this ways.  It looks like we might
get some rain this evening and tomorrow.  The wind
has sure picked up.  Benny is barking at the house
behind us that has a back door swaying in the breeze.
That has to be it,  being there’s nobody out there :).
I just heard the door slam open.  I think I might of got
it through Benny’s head this time that the only thing
he’s hearing is that,  at the moment of course LOL.
Yep,  he’s our little watchdog.  It’s just me and the
boys again today.  They’ve kind of gotten used to it.
This time Benny just stood with me at the front door
and watched Judy back out of the driveway.  Milo
never got up.  He’s was lying on the floor in here
just snoring.  He’s gotten up since then and gone
out to go potty a couple of times.  I fixed Judy and
I some EGGO’s and sausage for breakfast and
made a couple of extra sausages for the boys,  but
it seems that Benny has put on his Garfield face
as he does from time to time and didn’t want his
sausages.  I just a few moments ago fixed them
an egg and they shared it,  of course surely not in
the same bowl/dog pan LOL.  Cases when there
has been only one,  sort of like the water  bowl in
here,  Benny will wait till Milo is finished and then
get a drink,  but if Benny is eating,  Milo better
back off,  because Benny protects his food hehehe.
He’ll give a Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr as a warning which
usually gets the point across to Milo,  but what’s
funny is Benny doesn’t care if we pet him or mess
with him while he’s eating.  He just don’t want his
big bubba to get it hehehe.  I just stepped out for
a moment and had to hold tight to our screen door.
That wind is gusting at about 25 miles per hour :).
Milo’s been following me everywhere I go.  He’s
my four legged shadow.  Benny does it too,  but
at the moment he’s resting in his/our recliner :).
We hardly need our fans on today with that big
breeze blowing through the house.  The temp
has dropped a degree since I began writing :)
It’s now 78 F degrees.  The nights have been
a little chilly lately,  but I don’t mind.  I prefer
it to be chilly rather than be hot and humid,  so
it works for me.  The house always seems to
get quieter when Judy is gone hehehe.  I think
it might be due to Milo not barking at her for
treats.  He thinks she’s the treat dispenser or
something LOL.  Benny just lets Milo do all of
the barking and then reaps the reward,  that is
of course if Milo’s barking got a treat and not a
SHUT UP or use your indoor voice and hush
cause ya ain’t gonna get a treat right now :).
Yep,  this be one wacky family.  I often  will
do some silly things when I get really bored.
Ya never know what’s up my sleeve or pants
legs or whatever hehehe.  But yes I do get
bored from time to time,  being that there’s
not much to do around here other than take
pictures,  watch TV and write.  Oh yea,  surely
not to forget play with our boys and irritate
Judy :).  It would be nice if we had some of our
old neighbors back.  Brian and me used to go
fishing often and he would fly his RC planes
while I video taped them in flight.  Carol and
her kids used to come over from time to time
and I always enjoyed seeing them.  June 27 of
2012 we had a sort of flood in our yard and the
kids brought over their dads canoe and rowed
back and forth across the water hehehe.  I’ve
got tons of pictures of that day as well as a few
good videos.  Shortly before they moved they
brought and left a cute little statuette on our
steps that read “I think you’re nice”.  I sure
do miss them.  Well,  I met our new neighbors
last Sunday shortly after I finished writing my
article.  I decided to haul my conga drums out
for a breath of air and do a recording in front
of our house.  They heard me playing and came
to watch and listen.  They told me to not worry
about bothering them.  Hehehe he used to play
the congas a bit also.  Their names are Mark
and Shirlene.   They are nice people.  Shirlene
took off her straw hat and stuck in my head and
stuck it on my head saying it’s yours now LOL.
Maybe,  hopefully they’ll hang around for a bit.
Here lately our neighbors have changed more
times than I wash my hair LOL.  I see some
dark clouds blowing in.  Yep,  it’s gonna rain :).
After I finish with writing,  I think I’m gonna
wash a load of clothes and then go outside and
uncover the boys swimming pool and dog house
while also uncovering our picnic table and drag
them all to the front of our house.  Of course
I’ll have to fill the kiddie pool with water to
prevent it from blowing away with the breeze.
If I don’t,  it will end up in Canada in no time.
I just took a break from writing and dug out
the pool.  doghouse and picnic table with chairs.
The pools filling as I write.  I put a cinder block
in the pool to keep it from blowing away before
it’s filled LOL.  So now it’s on with my rambling.
It’s dropped another degree since I said before.
Now it’s 77 F degrees hehehe.  Going down fast.
Benny decided to come in here with me and Milo.
He’s now lying in the floor beside his brother :)
of course Milo finally curled up in one of the
doggy beds hehehe.  Benny’s now following me
all around the place with his little tail wagging :).
Anyways,  I just went out and shut off the water
hose being I believe the rain will fill it the rest
of the way LOL.  I laid the cinder block on the
outside of the pool so if they wanna drink
they can just get on it and get one.  Of course
they’ll have to jump to get in and out of the
pool,  OK,  maybe just in due to the cinder
block on the outside LOL.  I did all this with
a long shirt on hoping the breeze didn’t get
a bit frisky and expose me hehehe.  Of course
I’m sure our neighbors have better things to
do rather than just wait for me to come outside
and watch me hehehe.  Judy said that she might
stop and get us something to eat on her way
home.  So,  we shall see.  I have the bath rags
and towels in the washer now waiting for them
to finish so I can put them in the dryer  and
put our clothes in the washer.  Fun times at
the Pearce’s Place hehehe.   I have dishes
needing washing too.  Sheesh,  it never ends!
Oh well,  it kills the boredom hehehe.  I think
I’m gonna go ahead and let my beard grow
out a little at a time,  but not all the way out
until it’s a bit closer to winter LOL.  I showed
our new neighbors a picture of me in my Santa
suit and they said,  Hey,  we live next door to
Santa Claus :).  It’s cooled down a little more
now.  It’s 75 F degrees now LOL.  I know I
don’t thank God enough for all of the blessings
He gives me,  so let me stop right here to say
a bit of thanks to Him.  Thank You God for
putting up with all my silliness and never giving
up on me.  Thank You for giving us Your Son
to give forgiveness for all of our sins and yes I
do sin way too much,  but I’m trying.  God has
showed me His mercy on many different venues
of my life.  Not one of us is sinless,  but if we
allow God’s Son in hearts and lives then we can
be washed of our sins in Heaven.  Yes,  we will
still have to answer to them here on Earth in
our fleshly bodies,  but when we die,  we have
Jesus to wipe our slate clean.  Please,  if you
haven’t found a relationship with God,  I implore
to find one today.  He’s only a prayer away.
Now,  I guess it’s time for me to stop rambling
and take a little looksee back through all that
I’ve written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for today’s new
poem that I have not used already LOL.  So,
away I go to that little place that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a good title,  but now I’ve gotta try and write
something using it LOL.  Here goes nothing.

Next Door

When words find ways
to vibrate through walls
you might just find
next door full of squalls.
Sometimes a persons
reflection in time
finds them next door
as an awkward design.
For what one’s hearing
might not shed a light
on the ones next door
of what’s really right.
We all at one seasons
moment displayed
find we’re reacting
to times lemonade.
For what you’re hearing
might just surely be
the sounds of a program
that’s on their TV.

Ok,  so how was that hehehe?  I hope a few of you
understood it :).  How many times have you come in
a conversation and thought they were talking about
one thing and it was nowhere near what you thought?
I know it’s happened to me at least a dozen times if
not a hundred/thousand hehehe.  I just went to check
to see if it was raining yet and it was a good thing I did.
It was raining in the house,  so I shut the windows on
the south side of the house.  It’s not raining in on the
North side LOL.  Ya can’t even tell that it’s raining
unless you get up and look outside hehehe.  Benny
was still outside from when I let Milo out to go potty
and he was ready to come in.  Benny don’t like rain.
Loves snow,  hates rain LOL.  The temperature has
dropped quite a bit now.  It’s 68 F degrees now,  but
I think the rain helped out a bit hehehe.   The boys
are now lying in the floor to the left of me and happy.
Benny’s a tad wet,  but he’ll dry quickly.  I have
a prayer request.  My sister in law Barbara is in the
fear of the cancer returning being they found another
lump.  Please keep her in your prayers and also a
real good friend of mine in Oregon.  It’s cancer
and they have had to take him off chemo.  He said
he’s losing weight fast.  Please take Jimmy with you
in your prayers.  So,  I guess it’s time for me to be
telling you what I tell you every week and that is,
I wrote some more poetry and haiku.  Yeppers,
I wrote 10 more poems with once again 2 of them
being Christmas poems.  Also there’s one to Judy
about my silliness hehehe.  I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you find one or two of either or both that you like.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin my search
for that not so freaken elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful weekend and
blessings filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now,  where’s that silly off
switch trying to hide this week????  OH WOW,
you almost managed to hide from me this week :).
Hiding in my printer paper box was a good spot,
but ya gotta learn to not always be peeking out to
see if I see.  Peekaboo,  I see you hehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S.  It’s 64 F degrees now LOL.

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

Life and Lies

So many people
live life without truth
often learned sometime
come from their youth.
It might of come from
some place in time
where they were portrayed as
less than a dime.
Yet many people will
just lie away
when the truth’s better
to much surely say.
Often the liars club
is but a game
played by so many
just going insane.
Times might be displaying
fields of demise
found on the journey of
their life and lies.
Learn to move forwards
with truth better found
while letting Jesus be
your solid ground.
Yet don’t go crazy
just blurting what’s seen,
for sometimes truthful
can be really mean.

Looks of Disaster

When in a storm cloud
look for the good
that you might find as
misunderstood.
Sometimes a rainbow
is not clearly seen,
for there are nightmares
with no clear seen dream.
The looks of disaster
are often found blind
as many judge it
as a land mine.
Yet some disasters
are actually real good
just but a little bit
misunderstood.
Looks of disaster
will often find peace
when they are learned from
times we should cease.

Looking for Love

Some mornings find ones
searching to see
their own connection
to loves history.
Looking for love
in the places they go
often gives only a
life full of woe.
Let Jesus help you
to find your true love
even if it turns out
not who you’d think of.
Often perception
is a bit out of whack
looking for love on
the wrong railroad track.
Don’t always judge ones
by how that they look,
for what’s on inside
might be then mistook.

Winters Christmas

In my mind now
I remember
Winters Christmas
in December.
Seasons jolly
laughter too
in my mind now
I can view.
Winters Christmas
comes in clear
when I dream of
it sincere.
Seasons shadows
seem to dance
in my mind with
winters glance.
Christmas music
songs of joy
comes as blessings
I enjoy.
Winters Christmas
snowy white
I now dream of
day and night.

I Believe I Believe

When there’s not a glimmer
of sunshine to shine
I believe I believe
some hope I will find.
When sadness is shadowed
with all I think of
I believe I believe
there’s help from above.
When doorways are sliding
that I’ve entered through
I believe I believe
God will still be my glue.
When my own perception
is filled with despair
I believe I believe
God will help me through prayer.
When all my efforts
are turmoil’s of sight
I believe I believe
God will make it alright.

Today and Tomorrow

When we are seeing
but only yesterday
today and tomorrow
might not be OK.
It’s with the lessons
from yesterdays seen
today and tomorrow
can make a cuisine.
Yet if we focus
on too much of past
today and tomorrow
might have bad forecast.
Don’t spend all your time
in should’ve done lane
just wishing different
for now to attain.
Today and tomorrow
are right now in sight,
so let all your yesterdays
just teach what’s right.
Showing you timeframes
of moments abode
that maybe went right
or found to explode.

I Might Be Weird

My love my honey
I might be weird
with all the actions
that sometimes appear.
I might be silly
and do goofy things,
but I still love you
for you are my queen.
I might be weird
in the things that I do,
but I’ll always be here
to watch over you.
Some days might display
some bad points in time,
but I’ll always love you
with each day combined.
I might be weird honey,
but deep in my heart
I’ll always see you
as God’s work of art.

Summers Dreams

Sights transfixing
summers dreams
are as sometimes
rushing streams.
Then much deeper
those dreams go
and find settings
Christmas snow.
Summers dreams then
come in view
with me wishing
scenes so true.
Winters paintings
oh so white
in my dreams now
day and night.
Summers dreams that
now display
are of Christmas
winters way.
Summers dreams with
great desire
are of Christmas
passions fire.
Blazing heartbeats
to and fro
summers dreams now
in the snow.

Wishing Stones

In a smooth round
river rock
is a wishful
to unlock.
Wishing stones
to toss and say
I wish I might
I wish I may.
Some might toss them
in a pond
wishing for a
better dawn.
Yet some people
toss them in
wishing for
the same again.
Wishing stones
of waters way
many toss in
just to play.
Not found wishing
large or small,
yet they find
they had a ball.
Wishing stones
still wait to show
answers to
a wishful throw.

Within The Walls

When there’s silence
in the room
within the walls
might sing a tune.
Words of memoirs
found within
in the silence
now again.
Maybe glimmers
of the past
within the walls
a shadows cast.
Some say if
these walls could talk
they would maybe
squeak and squawk.
About the things
they heard ones say
from a distant
other day.
Within the walls
a story’s told
with a picture
to unfold.
So let stories
that they hear
be as blessings
so sincere.
Within the walls then
ones will find
peace and love
from time to time.

Haiku
for July 26,  2014

Shadows only thrive
when there is light to give life
no matter how much.

Looks of a morning
will change as time moves forwards
leaving memories.

Deciding your path
needs knowledge of your footsteps
and maybe others.

A good flower blooms
when it’s been taken care of
and not left to die.

Pointless perception
finds ways into arguments
that need left alone.

Looking for hopeful
might find you eluding the best
due to appearance.

Without a footstep
after the true decision
there is no progress.

Leaning on others
can become a daily thing
that causes breakup.

Someone that’s smiling
might not be happy at all
and hiding a frown.

With someone watching
it might make you real nervous
to do what’s easy.

So many answers
come with even more questions
that have no answers.

Pools of teardrops
might form inside of ones heart
that is never seen.

Sometimes a story
is not at all what you thought,
due to the cover.

As clouds float by
there’s pictures being displayed
that many won’t see.

Without a heartbeat
our fleshly bodies will die,
but our spirit lives.

Glancing at someone,
you might get wrong impressions,
so give them a chance.

Life in the real world
is found overprotected
by many parents.

Many confuse love
with just a mere addiction
of someone to hold.

Today is a time
that yesterday forecasted
maybe not so well.

When spreading gossip
take a look at your own life
and see if it’s good.

Wandering eyeballs
see only part of the sights,
for they don’t hold fast.

As the seasons change
they also leave memories
found in the views.

Never Be The Same

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been?  We’ve been doing fairly well.  The
weather hasn’t been too awful bad.  As a matter of fact it’s
been pretty nice this passed week.  It’s only gotten a tad
warm.  Today’s high is supposed to be around 79 F degrees
and that’s what it is at this moment (1:30 PM).  Judy has
gone over her sisters house again today to take care of her
mother while her sister goes to work.  It’s just once a week
so me and the boys have some guy time LOL.  OK so they
are not human hehehe.  Some people swear up and down
that I’m not human LOL.  No matter,  me and the boys have
gotten used to this weekly scenario.  I stop writing time to
time and play with the boys.  Though Benny is right now
lying in his crate hoping that his mom (Judy) comes home
soon cause he misses her.  Milo is just following me all
over the place and as always wanting to lie down right at
my feet removing my leg room LOL.  I just called Benny
and he came running.  Hehehe they looked like they could
use a treat so I gave them each two strips of Bark’n Bacon.
They’re happy now :).  Now on with my journal.  We’ve
definitely got some new neighbors,  but I have yet to of
met them.  I’ll give them time to get moved in.  In the
mean time,  Benny is enjoying watching them as he has
always.  He likes to just sit and watch.  There’s not much
that goes on around this place hehehe.  I was thinking
about doing a drumming video today,  but not sure if my
arms and shoulders can handle it today.  They’ve been
hurting a bit more than normal here lately the same as
my legs and the rest of my body LOL.  It sure would be
nice to be able to sleep for more than 15 minutes at a
time hehehe.  I barely fall asleep and then have to get
up and make a mad dash to the restroom.  LOL that’s
of course if in fact I am able to actually fall asleep,  but
most times I just get so exhausted from lack of sleep
that I pass out and am awoken quickly with the need to
visit my office (ya know what I mean LOL).   Oh well
it won’t last forever,  because I most surely will be rid
of this worn out body one day soon,  thank God :).  Yet,
until then,  I’ll just do as I have been doing for decades
and catnap.  My darned chair keeps lowering on me :(.
I guess the cylinder is worn out.  It makes it real hard
to type.  Maybe one day soon I will be able to get me
a new computer chair.  Judy is needing one too,  but
she’s been needing it longer than me,  but then,  she
doesn’t do half of the writing that I do.  None the less
we will both one day soon get some new chairs when
we can afford them.  It’s not the end of the world.  We
will survive.  I’ve lived with much less in my past and
survived.  Ok so now Milo is lying down in the floor
right behind me.  I think Benny has gone back to the
living room where he does his watchdog thing hehehe.
He’s our little doorbell.  Of course often he’s just in
there barking at either the neighbors or a sound he
heard hehehe.  He’ll bark and if he doesn’t see me
or Judy coming to check it out,  he’ll head in here
and try to get us to follow him hehehe.  Kind of like
a Peekapoo Lassie LOL.  Then I’ll look and if there
is nothing to be barking about,  I’ll open the door and
show him that there is nothing to be barking about.
Then he hushes,  until he hears something else LOL.
I think I liked it better when he didn’t bark at all :),
but he was just a pup when we got him.  This passed
July 16th,  Benny turned 3 years old although he
still acts like a pup.  Milo will get in a playful mood
from time to time and chase Benny around the house,
but Milo is 9 years old and will be 10 on Halloween.
He ain’t no spring chicken ya know hehehehe,  but
there are times he likes to act like it.  Like when I’m
fixing to feed them,  he’ll jump almost a foot off of the
floor in excitement.  Dinner time is their favorite time
of day hehehe.  LOL,  any time is Milo’s favorite time
of day as long as it involves food.  I have to tell him
to go and lie down when he starts barking for a treat,
because it ain’t happening every time he wants one.
It’s mighty cloudy outside,  but we’re not expecting
any rain.  We might though get a sprinkle here and
there.  Milo has moved to the doorway and out from
under my feet where he sort of snuck to when I wasn’t
looking hehehe.  If I move my feet for just a second
he will often sneak up under my desk.  For some dumb
reason he likes to be right under foot LOL.  Oh well,
we still love him hehehe.  Now what else is there to
talk about?  Well,  I got a lot of great cloud pictures
this last week.  I love how the clouds are like artwork
always changing.  Yes I got some pictures of me and
the boys as well.  I finally managed to buy back my
1975 high school yearbook.  Mine got stolen back in
the early 80’s.  It’s great to be able to revisit my
graduation days and see some pictures that I had
not seen in decades.  There’s a picture of me playing
my trap drum set at the pep rally hehehe.  Yep,  no
beard hehehe.  Beards were against the dress code as
were many other things,  but a few things I managed
to sneak in,  like long hair or should I say sort of
long LOL.  There were a few of us rebels in school :).
I do wish I could do it again,  but do it right this time.
I screwed up many times just as many others did.  Our
life is to be remembered,  not be relived.  No matter
if you returned to that very same place,  it will never
be the same.  Times change and so do we.  Take the
memories with you,  good and bad.  Enjoy the good
ones and learn from the bad ones.  Don’t let time
to be forgotten,  for it’s with those moments that we
grow to be who we are and learn to improve.  I do
though wish I had listened more to my parents and
not have run amuck as I did,  but I can’t undo it,
so I’ve had to learn from it.  Some lessons are what
I try to teach others,  being I have already gone
through it and it’s done.  I’ve had to learn to laugh
at my mistakes and not let them become my daily
focal point.  Of course I still screw up on a day to
day turnstile.  LOL,  who doesn’t?  OK,  a better
question,  who will admit to it hehehe?  I’ve found
many people that want to act like they’ve never
made a mistake and most surely don’t want to
admit to making any mistakes behind closed doors.
LOL yep,  often the ego can cause ones to try to
hide their imperfections and make like they never
happened,  but God knows,  and in fact He knew
that we would always make mistakes,  because
that’s what gives us growth.  Sometimes mistakes
will shed light on a better avenue to travel than
we would of ever known if we had never made the
mistakes.  Like turning the wrong way on a road
showing you a better route that you never knew
was there.  In any sense,  learn from the mistakes
of yours and others and grow.  Don’t become a
stagnant pond that will not admit that there was
ever a ripple.  So I guess it’s come to that point
and time that I need to be ceasing my rambling
and taking a little looksee 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 always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may have found
a good title,  but now I’ve gotta make sure that I
haven’t already used it hehehe.  Nope,  so it’s a go.
Hope it comes out making at least a little sense :).

Never Be The Same

Found as our echoes
of time and agin
will never be the same
as the way it has been.
Scenes we remember
from so long ago
will never be the same
as then to and fro.
So many moments
that we’d like to change
cannot be repeated,
they’ll never be the same.
Changes in heartbeats
from young unto old
will never be the same
as our lifetimes unfold.
So when you’re thinking
of sometime insane
learn how to change it
to never be the same.
Learn from the lessons
to gather your wits
that never be the same
needs you to resist.

There ya go!  I hope that my rambling didn’t put ya to sleep
and the poem made some sense to you.  Of course,  if what
I write helps you sleep,  then I am happy for that as well LOL.
Some of my writing is sort of silly and I know it.  :) Even some
of my poems might be a bit silly,  but I write what comes into
my thoughts.  You might not agree with some of it,  but I don’t
really care one way or another.  It’s my beliefs and the way
that I think.  I’m not in this world to have everybody to agree
with me LOL,  nor am I going to agree with everybody by
that same notion.  God gave me my perceptions and ability
to share with whomever that wants to read it.  I hope you
have been enjoying my many episodes of rambling LOL.
I often enjoy reading back through what I’ve written to see
what I might of messed up hehehehe.  Yes I do also find
things that help me that I had forgotten that I wrote down.
That in essence was the reason I began writing my journal
in the first place hehehe.  I just happened to share it with
a few of my friends and they shared it with a few of their
friends and well,  from 1995 it came to what’s now called
Animal’s Greetings being Animal is a nick name that I’ve
had since the late 70’s LOL.  Gary, the bass player in my
band from way back then, took his son to see the Muppet
Movie when it first came out and then came to practice
the next day saying he saw a creature that reminded him
of me and it even made the same laughing sounds and
played the drums in the same crazy way that I did hehe.
My hair was even so long that it made him think of me :)
Yep,  it was Animal!  LOL and so it stuck and everyone
started calling me Animal.  I don’t mind it hehehe,  it’s
better than Kermit LOL.  Ok so now that I have done
gone and rambled a bit more,  I think I need to stop here
and tell you what I tell you almost every week and that is,
I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems with two of them once agin being Christmas poems.
One of them though is more like a children’s Christmas
story poem.  I also wrote once again 22 haiku for all of
my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you find at least one
or two of either or both that you like.  Now it’s time for
me to begin my search 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.  Now to find that confounded off
switch :).  Oh for Heavens sake,  are you even trying?
I can see you as plain as day hiding on the cap of my
eyedrops LOL.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S.  The first poem is one that I wrote about Judy
and I reflecting on some great times from long ago
at Port Aransas Texas.

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

I Recall
(This is about Judy and I)

Minutes daydreams
spring to fall
are some moments
I recall.
Scenes transfixing
ocean waves
I recall
those distant days.
Summers sunshine
oh so bright
I recall
that scenic sight.
Rolling moments
footprints found
I recall
that wondrous sound.
Waves found crashing
on the shore
I recall
that time and more.
Hands held tightly
in the waves
you and I
those sunny days.
Minutes passing
now to find
I recall it
in my mind.
Our hearts gathered
for a sight
I recall
each day and night.
Then the moon comes
bright to see
I recall
just you and me.
Watching sunshine
fade away
I recall
that distant day.

Hidden Trails

Minutes passing
times details
might display some
hidden trails.
Scenes so quickly
passed us by
while our hurry
seemed to fly.
Hidden trails of
unknown days
might show futures
scenic gaze.
Sometimes as a
moments time
hidden trails
our own design.
Many footsteps
that we’ve taken
hidden trails
might then awaken.
Like a doorway
entered through
hidden trails
might show their view.
Found with footprints
others took
hidden trails
display their look.
Scenes as valleys
oceans too
hidden trails
will display true.
Timeless echoes
hidden trails
given chance
will show their selves.

Silent Storms

In the silence
you might hear
sounds of thunder
very near.
Yet some minutes
might not be
what you hear
or what you see.
Silent storms
inside ones heart
might be raging
off the chart.
For so many
hold it in
storms of anger
now and then.
Silent storms can
grow so large
that the anger
can take charge.
Don’t let silent
storms rage on.
Find some peace from
dusk to dawn
Let God give you
peace of mind
to ease the silent
storms of time.

Watching And Waiting

Searching for blessings
might lose you the sight
of what that God has
given just right.
Watching and waiting
for minutes to pass
could make the moments
seem out of contrast.
Let each days blessings
come as they will
as you continue
to try to fulfill.
Watching and waiting
can grow you impatient
not seeing truly
what’s then Heaven sent.
Just do your best now
as each season turns
and then let God to
fulfill your concerns.
He knows much better
of all that we need
so let Him give you
the best to succeed.
Often our vision
does not see the plan
while watching and waiting
for times and again.
Cease always watching
and waiting each day
and do your best now
with Jesus,  OK.

A Little Christmas

Summertime’s breath ways
are breathed with a smile
often with dreams of
a little Christmas while.
A moment of splendor
that lives in my heart
is a little Christmas
with white snowy art.
Scenes as a snowman
with a little carrot nose
and coal for the eyes
in a moment that’s froze.
A little Christmas art
that twinkles on the trees
as snow lands and plays
while blowing in the breeze.
Summertime’s sunshine
does not make this fade,
for it’s a little Christmas
that my mind has made.
A daydream of beauty
that exist now for me
is a little Christmas
of which I can see.

Beyond The Sky

While looking upwards
at clouds floating by
I have some thoughts found
beyond the sky.
Planets rotating
in their own timeframe
far beyond the sky
and an aero plane.
The dark of night displays
the stars in the sky
that might be planets
that rotate and fly.
Within their cosmos
of time faraway
our year might just be
just a moment of day.
Beyond the sky
is what that I seek
so far away
with telescope peek.
Some are just stars,
but so many we find
are planets like ours
in another point and time.
Thinking that we’re all
that Lord God has made
beyond the stars
shows all that to fade.
For He created planets
and maybe just a few
have someone on them
just like me and you.
Maybe a little different,
but yet they’re the same,
for we’re all different
with our looks and name.

Frosty’s Christmas

One time long ago
on a bright winters day
there was some snowfall
that wanted to play.
A magic hat that
was lost long ago
brought alive Frosty then
made out of snow.
He was a happy one
fluffy and white
that dreamed of Christmas
each day and each night.
For Frosty one time
as years had gone by
he remembered children
a Christmassy high.
He was excitedly
looking around
searching for children
in this little town.
Then he saw a little one
sat all alone
crying about Christmas
that he’s never known.
So Frosty walked up
and sat on the ground
and the little boy said
you’re big and round.
Frosty said I came alive
with this magic hat
and at the moment
don’t know where I’m at.
Then the little boy said
with a tiny smile
you’re sent from Santa
to be here a while.
Frosty then got up
and said to the boy
get up and join me
in a little Christmas joy.
They went off singing
and dancing with glee
while Frosty found out
why he was to be.
This little boy was left
so very alone
for he was brought up
with Christmas not known.
So Frosty taught him
the true joy to find
that is from Jesus
in true Christmastime.
He said that the season
can live all year round
inside your heart as
Lord Jesus is found.
Find now the blessings
as now comes to be.
The boy looked at Frosty
and said he will see.
The boy gave a wink
and went on his way
while Frosty went onwards
in search another day.
Looking for another
heart which to cheer
before he melts away
for another times year.

Finding Some Peace

When troubles find you
and seep in your heart
find you some peace in
a prayers work of art.
For finding peaceful
is a blessing away
found in a moments time
kneeled down to pray.
Often our struggles will
just bring us down,
but with Lord Jesus
you can lose that frown.
Finding some peaceful
might seem as too hard
when all you’re seeing
is Hell in your yard,
but look deep within you
and find breath of air
found in a moments time
through just a prayer.

Mornings Paradise

Dawns own arrival
brings tears to my eyes
with all the beauty of
mornings paradise.
Seasonal thresholds
so wonderfully staged
as morning comes with
each story well paged.
Written as turnstiles
of dawns early shine
mornings arrival
shows its point and time.
Paging as a journal
in a book with a seed
mornings paradise
gives a story to read.
Each page with wonder
and greatest surprise
is what that’s found in
mornings paradise.

Certain Times

Time for thunder,
time for rain,
time for lightning
strikes again.
Certain times are
found to be
what we sometimes
never see.
Time for winter,
on through fall,
time for seasons
to enthrall.
Certain times
we might be found
standing looking
all around.
Time for morning,
time for night,
time for each time
found in sight.
Certain times
we may not find,
because we’re looking
back in time.

Haiku
for July 19,  2014

Today gives chances
to make better tomorrows
beginning right now.

A persons answer
might not be an honest one,
but a better one.

Some clouds shapes defined
are often of the viewers
that only they see.

Counting the seconds
can make a day as a week,
so enjoy the time.

Tomorrows journey
might need some preparation
to avoid mistakes.

A new pair of eyes
can change up your perception
so look from both sides.

Beyond a birds nest
is a mother bird in watch
guarding her babies.

Life in the fast lane
will give you many problems
that could be lessened.

A summer shower
can give life to a flower,
but also drown it.

Morning comes dawning
with maybe some bright sunshine
or maybe some clouds.

Life’s a mystery
with the ins and outs of time
that might surprise us.

A disasters brink
might be found in a flower
that was just a weed.

Starting with footsteps
without watching your footing
might show some stumbles.

Ventures of a snail
are some long and patient ones
that often end short.

A turtles refuge
is within itself with faith
that none can enter.

Many flowers bloom
with just a little sunshine,
for they bloom at night.

Life in the rich world
might seem to be exciting,
but there are some jolts.

A kingdom of want
can come crashing down on you
with bricks of despair.

Lives filled with hatred
will only find bitterness
filling up their voids.

Negligent people
will lose track of what’s needed
and lose what they have.

With four pawed journeys
comes a pathway of hopeful
when they’re truly loved.

Our destinations
are written within heartbeats
found in our choices.

We Can Barely

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been?  Judy and I have been doing pretty well.
We went to a cook out Saturday at her sister Trudy’s house.
It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of good food to eat as
well as a lot of great togetherness.  There were tons of dogs
there LOL.  Benny and Milo were joined with quite a few more
dogs LOL.  It was hard to keep track of them all,  but I believe
there were 9 all together.  There was Benny and Milo of course
with their cousins Fenway,  Willow,  Cricket,  Dodge, Peanut,
Keony and Chillybean hehehe.  It was a dog day of summer :).
The kids spent most of their time in the pool.  Judy and I took
a lot of pictures.  I took a couple of videos of the kids in the pool
and of everyone there in a pan sort of way.  I had to come home
a little early so I could rest my eyes and then start on my poems
and haiku.  Milo came home with me being he was tired hehehe.
Milo was the oldest dog there.  At least 7 years older than all
of the other pooches hehehe.  Benny wanted to stay,  so he just
kept on playing with all of his cousins,  none which were of the
same breed as him or Milo hehehe.  He don’t care cause dogs
aren’t prejudice hehehe.  We had a lot of food left over so it
looks like we’ll be eating leftovers today :).  Of course I won’t
be able to eat much of the cake,  being I can’t handle to many.
sweets.  I never had much of a sweet tooth.  Hehehe and now
I haven’t got any teeth at all,  but I’ll maybe eat a piece or 2.
Milo just told me he needs to go outside,  so I’ll be back hehehe
in my best Terminator voice.  I’m back.  Milo is back too LOL.
He does his business and is ready to  come right back in,  but
Benny on the other hand,  followed Milo outside and is now
sitting on the front steps just looking around.  Benny likes to
go outside and romp around and watch people,  but Milo is
strictly an indoor dog.  The day we brought him home he ran
up the steps and in the house and he was happy while he made
his way around the living room vacuuming up all of the leftover
treats that Benny had left all strewn about hehehe.  Now he
goes in there time to time to see what Benny has left uneaten.
LOL Benny tried to hide his treats in the spare room,  but old
Milo wised up to that and now goes looking in there hehehehe.
It’s a high of 81 F degrees today and that’s what it is right now
according to my weather program.  It’s supposed to rain today
and on through Tuesday night.  Tomorrows temp is supposed
to be the same as today,  but the rest of the week is scheduled
for the mid to upper 70’s for the high.  Not too awful bad.  Judy
has gone over her sister Trudy’s house again today,  to take
care of her mom while her sister goes to work for her one day
a week.  So,  it’s just me and the boys again.  They’ve gotten
used to it.  LOL Milo just plops down in the floor next to me
and goes to sleep,  while Benny plays watch dog hehe.  Last
night I had to wake up Milo to let him know that mom and
Benny were home LOL.  Of course he didn’t actually get up
until Judy and Benny came in here :)  Then he wanted treats.
The wind has picked up a bit.  I just went to see if Benny was
ready to come inside,  but he’s still exploring.  He looked up
at me and gave me a little doggy smile and then continued his
little quest for who knows what LOL.  I don’t even think he
knows what he’s looking for hehehe.  It was getting a little
humid in here so I turned our portable AC on and put the
settings on Dehumidifier.  It’s already feeling much better
in here.  So,  what else is going on around this place?????
Well,   it looks like we may have a new neighbor.  They’re
moving in at this very moment.  I hope they’re decent and
hopefully sociable.  LOL it looks like they have a white
SUV as well :).  That should really confuse the boys LOL.
Benny is lying down at the side of our steps looking over
there and I can sense his anticipation,  but I think he can
tell that the car isn’t ours,  because he’s not raising a fit.
I guess the games will begin when the snow starts to fall.
White cars being hidden from view with the camouflage
of winter LOL.  It should be interesting hehehe to see if
our landlord can manage to see our cars and not plow into
them.  Hopefully the rear reflectors will help illuminate
them to prevent them from being pummeled.  I might put
out a few tall reflectors in the snow to help him to see it.
Believe it or not,  I am anxiously awaiting the first signs
of snow.  I do love snow,  but after a few months,  even it
gets old LOL.  Yet,  I don’t believe Benny ever gets tired
of it.  He simply adores snow.  We can barely get him to
come inside when there’s snow outside,  but when his little
paws get too cold,  he’s usually ready to come inside and
thaw hehehe.  The neighbors look like they’re heading out
for another load,  so Benny was ready to come inside for
a bit and guard from his recliner.  LOL I say his recliner
due to the fact he has taken it over.  It used to be mine :).
Our landlord is out there now with his tractor to do Heaven
knows what hehehe.  I think he just likes to drive his tractor
backhoe.  He was out there at the end of the driveway on
his tractor talking to the new tenants as they were trying
to leave for another load.  Now it’s sprinkling and Calvin
(our landlord) has headed back home hehehe and the new
tenants have gone on their way.  It does get a bit comedic
around here from time to time hehehe.  I hear the roar of
Calvin’s tractor again,  but he’s nowhere to be seen.  God
only knows LOL.  Milo keeps following me back and forth as
I go to see what’s going on outside hehehe.  He’s my little
shadow.  Benny is just lying on the recliner,  but now I hear
him barking at someone or something.  I’ll be back LOL.
It’s just the new neighbors again this time with a different
car.  I’m trying not to roll over Milos tail,  but he’s lying
down right under me and making it hard hehehe.  Our little
kennel :) (Pearce’s Doghouse).  My nickname is Animal
ya know LOL.  Yep,  ya can see the bond’s we have for
each other in this house.  Judy and I completed our little
home with gifts from God that have 4 legs each.  They do
though get on our nerves from time to time,  but for the
most part,  they are good little boys and we love them
bunches.  I might have to make a mad dash to go and
shut windows in a bit.  It looks like it might start pouring
down any minute now.  It was just sprinkling a little bit
ago and not worth shutting the windows.  I just went and
closed the windows on the south side of the house,  being
that’s the direction the rain is coming from.  Ya can’t even
tell that it’s raining on the north side,  other than the fact
that you can see it coming down when looking outside LOL.
Benny’s still on the recliner hehehe.  He loves that chair.
If I sit in it,  I usually end up with both Benny and Milo
trying to hop up in my lap.  Benny first and then Milo LOL.
Thank you God for giving me the blessing of this home
and allowing me to experience life of a different venture from
the nightmares that I had been through.  I realize that You
were always with me allowing what I needed just as you are
today and every day.  Many times I may have thought that
You had forsaken me,  but I found out that You were with
me just letting me learn the lessons I needed in hopes
that I would wise up.  I have wised up Lord and I am very
thankful for Your love and guidance that You sent through
people that came into my life.  We all have our down times
in life and might even think that God has forsaken us,  but
it’s not Him that’s forsaken us,  but us that have forsaken
Him at times.  We all at one timeframe or another head
down our own pathways,  but God sends us help to get us on
the right path.  It’s up to us to use that help and change our
directions and grow.  Don’t let failure to engulf your heart.
Let the failure to bring lessons into light so that you can
become stronger.  If you fail and grow from it,  then you
haven’t really failed.  Now it’s time once again for me to
begin my little looksee 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 my points of recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found a fairly good title
a ways back in my writing hehehe.  Now let’s see if I can
write even a halfway decent poem using it hehehehehehe.
Here goes nothing,  :) which might truly be the case LOL.

We Can Barely

Sometimes daydreams
that we find
turn into a
big land mine.
We can barely
sometimes see
best of daydreams
you and me.
Often textures
of our thoughts
are what many
might of lost.
We can barely
see ones ways
when they hide them
in their gaze.
Don’t let people
lie to you
finding daydreams
not so true.
Look for truthful
in daydreams
and then make them
running streams.
We can barely
see tomorrow
so don’t live with
so much sorrow.
Do your best now
times so rarely
not just thinking
we can barely.
Lose the downsides
stormy weather
that might seem
to last forever.
For there’s hopeful
to attain
that God’s sent us
now again.
We can barely
see beyond
so find joy
in each new dawn.

Ok,  how was that?  LOL,  I know,  it wasn’t that good,  but
you try to find a new title to use when you’ve already used
well over 8000 hehehe.  Then try writing a poem using one
that might not seem to work so well as a title hehehehehehe.
Anyways,  I think it came out fairly well :).  No matter,  it is
done!  Well it has cooled down a bit since I began writing :).
It’s now 77 F degrees at 6:30 PM.  Milo is still lying down
in the floor right beneath me.  He did though move his tail,
so I’m not as worried about running it over as I was hehehe.
Judy should be home in a few hours.  Then we will eat dinner.
I might feed the boys before that though.  It’s determined
whether I finish this before she gets home or not.  I’ve still
gotta find pictures to pan together for my stationery and then
send this to my other computer to do it up on my Outlook
Express,  being Windows Live SUCKS in a big way LOL.
I hope they come up with a fix one day,  but until that day
arrives,  I’ll still be using my trusty Windows XP for my
journals :).  It still works as it always has,  GREAT,  but
being that I didn’t buy the new XP PC until I could afford
it,  all of my poems and journals are on this Windows 8
with Windows Live (HOTMAIL) which does not give me
an ability to transfer my emails back to Outlook Express.
My old PC with Windows XP literally died but I backed
up my poems and journals on my external and transferred
them to this piece of garbage and I had no clue at all
that Windows 8 with Windows Live would be so bad,  so
I had to start using Judy’s PC with XP to do my journals
and send them being Windows live won’t do what I need.
Oh well,  I’ll manage hehehe.  If that’s the worst of my
problems then I’m counting my blessings :).  Of course
we all have our share of difficulties and to the owner of
the problems,  they might seem much greater than others,
but remember,  there is always someone in worse shape
than you.  There is also always someone better than
you at doing something,  so just do your best.  We each
have our own personalities and abilities.  Gifts from God.
So now I guess before I begin rambling too much again,
I need to tell you what I tell you every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.  I wrote them
all yesterday,  this time as I usually do unlike what I
did last week LOL.   Anyways,  I wrote 10 more poems
with 1 of them being a Christmas poem and another
being sort of Christmassy in a seasonal sort of way :).
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there.  I hope you find something that you like.
Now with that said,  I need to start 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 blessings filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Now,  where’s that off switch hiding
at this week?  Ok now,  that’s just flat stupid.  Hiding
behind my razor knife that is the thinnest thing on my
desk LOL.  Did ya think I wouldn’t see you right there
in front of me?  WRONG hehehe!   Gotcha,  see ya
CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

Lazy Days

Summers passions
bright sun rays
often finds some
lazy days.
Mornings doorways
entered through
brings lazy days
to me and you.
Maybe not so
for you and me,
and so many
would agree.
Yet there’s many
finding fame
with lazy days
that times attain.
We each need a
time to rest
a lazy day
to give you breath.
Lazy days
of now and then
often help us
to begin.
A breath of air
to help you flow
so you’re rested
where you go.

Looking Too Hard

As years roll loosely
some time might pass
while looking too hard
for shadows to cast.
Sometimes our efforts
are weighing us down
preventing good moments
to just come around.
Don’t let your hurries
to blind every view,
for sometimes wanting
might turn things askew.
Looking too hard can
blind you from good,
for sometimes inside
is not understood.
Often ones outside
will not show what’s real,
for what’s on inside
might have sex appeal.
So if you’re finding
you’re looking too hard,
step back and look at
the internal yard.
Take the time to look
beyond your own sight
and you might find then
what that is right.
Far beyond the flesh
of the person you see
might be the right person
God gave you and me.

Looks of Time

Seen through decades
moments too
looks of time might
seem askew.
Sometimes symptoms
of a change
might just seem
a little strange.
Often segments
that we see
were just changed
in you and me.
Minutes tick on
day by day
looks of time
form their display.
Sometimes dismal,
sometimes fine
date to date
our looks of time.

Pouring Down

Streams of minutes
waltz around
with some troubles
pouring down.
Many doorways
we’ve walked through
share confusions
every view.
Things we’ve dreamed of
day and night
come pouring down
with joy and fright.
Your perceptions
seen around
might be lesser
pouring down.
It just might be
blessings seen
thought a nightmare
found a dream.
Pouring down
those times you feared
might be lessons
time’s adhered.

Catching Wind

Laughing playing
here and there
time moves on
with non compare.
Younger times
of long ago
catching wind
was times I know.
In a car with
hands held out
catching wind
was then no doubt.
Lettings waves of
wind flow through
was the best thing
then to do.
Mom and dad would
watch and stare
while I’d  try to
catch some air.
Time’s moved on now
like a trend
while remembering
catching wind.

Family Ties

Truth of family’s
not just in blood
for many people
are just pure mud.
Not truly caring
about you and me
their family ties are
just history.
Find the connections
of family ties
and see the blessings
of much greater size.
Look past the blood
and see what is there
and learn the truth
of ones love and care.
Truly so many
see family ties
when they are built
on so many lies.
For I say family
is not just of blood,
for there is family
built with true love.

A Certain Time

A timeless blessing
that I remember
is from my childhood
found in December.
Christmastimes essence
flavored our home
when I was younger
in flesh and bone.
Sweet Christmas music
played on our radio
with a sweet mixture
of songs about snow.
A certain time that
blossomed so great
I now remember
that wonderful date.
Dreaming of Santa
and presents galore
that he would bring me
not from a store.
So many blessings
from that great design
are found so Christmassy
a certain time.

Mornings Remembered

December mornings
with snow on the ground
highlight the seasons
of time going around.
Mornings remembered
of glistening hues
are the reflections
that sunshine accrues.
Diligent snowflakes
fall from the sky
mornings remembered
found eye to eye.
Seasonal pictures
painted with white
mornings remembered
are quite a great sight.
Fluffy white snowflakes
landing in place
mornings remembered
the seasons embrace.
With every second of
timeframes I saw
mornings remembered
were filled with much awe.

Without A Thought

A cloud will float over
and leave not a trace
as we watch onwards
with skylines embrace.
Without a thought of
times sky romance
clouds might float by
with nary a glance.
Blue skies awaken
as clouds move away
leaving the pictures of
a bright sunny day.
Then as the night comes
clouds might be seen
without a thought of
a skies moments dream.
Painted with starlight
and hidden away
without a thought of
the last sight of day.
Yet the clouds fade away
to give us a view
stars that all twinkle
the way that they do.
Without a thought of
us down below
the stars start repeating
their own nightly show.
Then with the dawning
of a bright new day
we might find clouds
that are all blown away.

Blessings of Time

Often our blessings
are time driven days
giving us lessons
from so many greys.
The blessings of time
are many times found
when we cease looking
and searching around.
Sometimes our blessings
might seem as so small,
but we might find that
they’re bigger than all.
The future holds segues
of stories we read
sometimes as wanting’s
and sometimes as need.
God gives us what that
fills our design
within our moments of
blessings of time.

Haiku
for July 12,  2014

Some seconds will pass
bringing minutes into sight
for many to count.

Joined with a dewdrop
the morning glistens brightly
in sunshine’s delight.

A shadowy time
brings conclusions well alive
through our confusion.

A tree that’s cut down
leaves an imprint of itself
in the sands of time.

Some doorways open
to only show mysteries
that we must have faith.

A clowns painted smile
might hide a frown behind it
with tears falling down.

Some days a flower
and some days just a blossom
awaiting to bloom.

Beyond what we see
are our imaginations
that might become true.

God gives us heartbeats
to share with one another
no matter our gaze.

Our life is a book
filled up with many pages
that are confusion.

Counting your blessings
might find you some gratefulness
for times that are gone.

Seeing a tree sway
in an early morning breeze
can feel so serene.

Candy coated lives
can turn into our nightmares
if truth is hidden.

Challenging others
could turn to your own downfall
that you’re not ready.

Looking for blue skies
could find you missing the sights
of clouds of beauty.

Doorways to trouble
often open unnoticed
until later dates.

The length of minutes
is sometimes so much longer
when you are anxious.

An angel of love
will give peace through Lord Jesus
when troubles are great.

A dust bunny’s life
can exist beneath sofas
until it’s vacuumed.

Fan blades of summer
twirl about making breezes
out of a moment.

Grandeurs delusion
comes with a false sense of pride
and gives destruction.

Nows variations
might come with many viewpoints
from different eyes.
