ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another white and bright week gone by and
it’s seeming that this snow will never melt, but I know
it will sooner or later LOL. We might get some more
snow this week, but according to my weather program
it won’t be too much and it will be joined with some rain.
The daytime temperatures are supposed to be warmer
and above the freezing mark, but the nights are still in
the freezing temperature range. I am going to get my
PC packed up this week and sent to Texas to get it
hopefully repaired. It has many of the programs that
I need that I do not have on this PC. I’ve got my XP
PC switched over to my large monitor so I can see to
do what I need to do. The other monitor is a 15 inch.
This one is 28 inches. I can see it better. Anyways,
I’ve found all of my poems, journals and haiku’s so
I have them updated on this PC. Actually, the only
reason I use this PC is for my journals and sending
them using Outlook Express. Windows Live sucks.
It will not do my email folders or stationery as my
Outlook Express will. If I were to have to do it all on
Windows Live, I would just have to quit because it
will not work. So, thank God for Windows XP and
Outlook Express. I have all of the programs I need
on it to keep it safe. I don’t need Windows updates
I’ve got all of the preventive programs that I need.
This PC is a lot faster than the other also, being the
other one was only a 1.4 GHZ hehehe and I bought
it new a year or so ago from Walmart. I’m going to
see about getting my friends in Texas to put a faster
processor in it while they have it. This one has a
2.99 GHZ processor. It boogies hehehe. Oh well,
life goes on. Anyways, onto another topic. This
passed week Judy went for an Aortogram which is
Angioplasty on her leg to unblock the arteries in
her leg. She’ll have the other leg done later. They
can only do one leg at a time. She’s doing pretty
good. They said she could remove the bandage
in 48 hours and that was last Tuesday, but she
left it on for a couple days extra just for safety’s
sake. I removed it for her last night. It’s healed
nicely. We’re going to buy us some bicycles when
we can afford them and some dog/kid carriers to
pull behind them so Benny and Milo can go with
us on our rides :) Yeppers, Judy and me wanna
lose some weight and we figured that’ll be a good
way. Today it’s bright and sunny and when you
look outside, you can go snow-blind, because it’s
white as all get out hehehe. Yep, we’ve still got
megatons of snow outside. Benny is sitting on
the porch enjoying the sunshine. He loves to sit
on the porch. I have no idea why, but he does.
I think I’ll go see if he’s ready to come in. I’ll
be back. I opened the door and said, are ya
ready to come back inside and he just looked up
at me as if to ponder the thought and then he got
up and slowly came inside and he was greeted by
Milo. OK back to writing. It’s 37 F degrees and
with the sun shining it feels a little warmer than
that. It’s supposed to get down to 21 F degrees
tonight. That’s still not too bad. It’s not subzero.
Well, what else is there to talk about? The boys
are resting quietly in the other room. I think Milo
is on our bed watching cartoons and Benny is in
the living room on the recliner hehehe. Judy’s
daughters came over the other day to check and
see how her surgery went. We had a great visit.
They brought Helena’s son Christian with them.
Helena is Judy’s youngest daughter. I was in
the middle of fixing Judy and I some breakfast
when they came by, but we sat and ate it while
we visited. Judy had already taken her diabetes
medicine and she had to eat. I took a few pictures
of her and the girls along with Christian in the
mix hehehe. I might put one of the pictures in
the stationery. Oh yea, me and the boys had
to wait out in the parking garage at the hospital
for 8 hours while Judy had her operation and
went to recovery. I went to visit her a couple
of times, but got lost on each occasion being
I get turned around easy hehehe and that is a
big hospital down in Bangor. I had to ask for
help to find her and then get back to our car :)
My asthma was kicking in bad and they ended
up wheeling me around in a wheelchair hehehe.
The Valet took me to our car. LOL, they didn’t
park it, but they could tell that I was not going
to be able to walk out to it, being I had moved
the car to the wrong parking lot hehehe. Hey,
I didn’t know. The doctor told me that I might
wanna move our car to the outside parking lot
so the boys could go potty. He never told me
which lot LOL. Anyways, I ended up moving
our car back to the parking garage as close
to the door as possible, so that when Judy was
ready to come home, they could see our car.
The boys never went poop. I guess they were
both a bit nervous. They did number 1 though.
LOL when we finally got home, they both ran
to find a place to go potty hehehe. Bangor
is 115 miles south of us LOL. Judy and I were
hungry so we stopped off at Wendy’s and got
us each a burger and fries to eat before we
headed on the long 2 1/2 hour drive home :)
Yep, Benny and Milo held their bowels until
we finally got home and quickly got out of the
car and ran to do their thing LOL. Yes we
love our little boys. God has so blessed our
family. My granddaughter Sami is doing a
little better. They had to amputate part of
her foot, but she is dealing with it as well as
to be expected. For those of you that don’t
know, Sami was born with Spinal Bifida
and her legs are paralyzed. She does real
good with braces. Please keep her and my
daughter Jamye in your prayers. Jamye is
doing her best, but I do know that all of the
problems can often overwhelm her at times.
They would me or anybody for that matter.
Thank You God for all of the blessings You
have given us and all of the angels that You
have sent to watch over us. There are many
times that I can feel the eyes of angels as
they stay beside me helping me to do what
I need to do. I can often feel the presence
of my dad as it seems his hand is laid on
my shoulder while watching me write. That
is what he used to do on Sunday mornings
when I was writing my journal. I can still
at times feel his hand on my shoulder as
he smiles and says, “Where’s my sermon”.
He always took my journal to church to use
in his lesson for the day. So, I reckon my
dad is always hanging out around our house
watching me write and keeping an eye on
us. I love you dad. OK so I guess I need
to cease my rambling and take my little
trip 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 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 decent title and now after checking
I see that I have not used it yet, so away
we go hehehe.

On My Shoulder

Those times I felt
a sudden touch
that I loved
so very much.
The hand of dad
while watching me
on my shoulder
so Heavenly.
The pages turned
from faraway
to right now
another day.
My dad in Heaven
watching me
and so often
felt so free.
On my shoulder
I can feel
my daddy there
so very real.
His hand of love
and guidance true
on my shoulder
says I love you.
In his actions
words are found
on my shoulder
he’s around.

To dad
I love you
Bill

Ok, so I got a little deep in the poem. I do think
of my dad often and can sometimes feel him here
watching us. I often hear his voice talking to me
when I am all alone. He always inspired me and
helped me in what ever I was interested in be it
music, poetry or whatever. Thanks dad :) Ok
time to get out of that mode hehehe. Milo just
strolled in and laid against me and my chair LOL.
I guess he missed me hehehe. Now he’s over in
a doggie bed right beside me. I haven’t heard
Benny bark for quite a while. There must not
be much going on outside today :) We have
new neighbors. They look to be older than us.
I hope they can handle it way out here in the
boonies :) There’s not much else to tell ya
except for what I tell you almost every week
and that is I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep, 10 more poems, but once again, none
of them are Christmas poems hehehe. I also
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. I hope you can find one that you
like out of either. Now I believe it’s time for
me to be searching for that confounded off
switch, but not before I wish you a most
joyful weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a truly blessings filled week. Remember
Jesus loves you and we do too. OK now,
where’s that off switch hiding at this week?
LOL, trying to act like a flea on Milo don’t
work. He ain’t got fleas and you’re a bit
large to be thinking you could pass as one.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Approaching Springtime

Wintertime’s leaving us
white snow to melt
showing its signature
times that it dealt.
Springtime’s beginning
with its scenic way
approaching with footsteps
of day after day.
The sunrise each morning
is brighter to shine
when winter leaves us
approaching springtime.
The days become flourished
with so much to grow
that were once hidden
beneath winters snow.
The days have more colors
as white fades away
while approaching springtime
with April and May.
Up here where the winters
seem to hang on real tight
springtime’s arrival
is a wonderful sight.
When approaching springtime
the warmth reappears
showing us its beauty
as it perseveres.
Filling up the distance with
beauty complete
giving us wonders
of a springtime retreat.
Green grasses growing
and flowers to bloom
approaching springtime
gives moments to swoon.
With every essence
of its own design
wintertime leaves us
approaching springtime.

Under The Moonlight

The night air breathes
a moonlight sky
with stars that twinkle
up so high.
Under the moonlight
scenes do appear
flavored as shadows
that often seem near.
Then as the moonlight
breathes a bit more
there are more stories
that you can explore.
Essence of starlight
moonlights companion
that in the night sky
seems like a canyon.
Rivers and valleys
a wonderful sight
are many wonders
under the moonlight.

It Takes Two

Two in a story
written in time
might find some pages
that somehow remind.
Written reminders
found deep inside
might repeat problems
of an ongoing ride.
It takes two people
to start up a war
letting the passed days
to go on too far.
It takes forgiving
but maybe not forget
the horrid yesterdays
a moments mindset.
Learning your lessons,
but not allowing them
to be your now days
of agin and agin.

Beyond The Portal

As doorways are closing
some open real wide
finding our pathways
with footsteps inside.
Beyond the portal
of moments remain
choices we’re choosing
sometimes so insane.
Many a doorway
will not be so good
showing us pathways
there aren’t understood.
Beyond the portal
of then unto there
time frames might falter
and seem without prayer.
Yet every portal
of life we go through
has better choices
for us then to do.
Choosing to change up
which way that we go
beyond the portal
then teaches to grow.
Lessons from journeys
of yesterdays miles
can make the difference
from our frowns and smiles.
Beyond the portal
learn how to breathe
finding God’s blessings
while learning to believe.

Just Imagine

With just a thought
you can be found
with times so sweet
on solid ground.
Just imagine
what that you see
is but a doorway
to a sweet mystery.
Now take a moment
to look deep within
find you a dream to
just imagine.
Seek for the times
of momentous smiles
now just imagine
how it compiles.
For every moment
of each time we see
we can imagine
a great mystery.
Now just imagine
a blessings filled day
and then let Jesus Christ
make it that way.

Springtime’s Lullaby

Within a sweet lullaby
of springtime’s desire
there is a moments time
in its entire.
Painted with morsels
of flowers and trees
and many birds
with a few bumblebees.
Springtime’s lullaby
sings ones to sleep
with all the blessings
of moments to keep.
Found in a lullaby
springtime displays
sweet birdies chirping
their wonderful ways.
Found in a gateway
of oh me oh my
are the great blessings
springtime’s lullaby.

Ocean Of Wisdom

The wisdom of waters
waves rolling in
is but an ocean
that times do begin.
An ocean of wisdom
brings forth a prayer
found in the waves
that none can compare.
Scenes so transfixing
as ships out at sea
an ocean of wisdom
displays then for free.
Waves of emotions
roll onto the shore
an ocean of wisdom
of time ever more.
Pictured in a seccond
of minutes of time
an ocean of wisdom
forms its design.

All Day

Looking outside
looking in
we might all day
see just sin.
Sometimes all day
isn’t found
what that’s truly
all around.
All day might seem
misery
as you blindly
search to see.
Yet all day might
be real good
if we’d look
the way we should.
Let not all day
be disgrace.
Seek for time
a smiling face.

The Evening Shade

The day rolls by
and sun goes down.
The evening shade
might then be found.
Counting minutes
through the day
brings the times
that go away.
The evening shade
is welcomed true
giving peace
from distant view.
For the sunset
brings its shine
sometimes brightly
time to time.
Then as sunlight
fades from view
the evening shade
is found brand-new.

A Longing Spirit

Beyond our heartbeat
Heavens shine
a longing spirit
so Divine.
The sweetest heartbeat
up above
a longing spirit
fills with love.
The sweetest passion
Christ bestows
a longing spirit
Heaven knows.
Sending blesssings
abundantly
a longing spirit
seeks to see.
It’s with Lord God
through His Son
a longing spirit’s
surely won.
A sweet heartbeat
then bestows
a longing spirit
Jesus knows.

Haiku
for Mar 28, 2015

The warmest people
could have a colder inside
that they hide from you.

Losing perception
makes distant thoughts deception
that could hurt someone.

The leaves on the trees
create abundant displays
as the wind will blow.

With every viewpoint
comes a different story
that many will tell.

Beyond now today
we cannot truly see clear
tomorrow’s results.

The river of time
flows as an secondhand of life
that’s misunderstood.

Searching for true love
could find you with many flaws
so let God help you.

Blessings in a life
are often hidden from sight
until the right time.

Harboring sadness
might find you stood all alone,
so learn how to smile.

As today moves on
it leaves traces of itself
written in your mind.

Sunrise of springtime
displays the dawn of flowers
and other species.

Heartbeats that unite
can become a thriving force
if God is with them.

The snow melts away
as winter breathes its last breath
and springtime arrives.

Destitute people
need some help from you and I
along with Jesus.

When one door closes
you’ll find another will open,
but it might be wrong.

The fear of darkness
gives strength to what’s within it
so have faith in God.

Tomorrow’s journey
begins with footsteps in today
so take heed your steps.

Losing your footing
can cause ridiculous words
to come from your mouth.

Following someone
might find you in their shadow
looking real stupid.

Allowing others
to depict your emotions
could make you the fool.

Hardships of others
might be a little rougher
than you thought they were.

Today marks a time
that yesterday helped to grow
through the good and bad.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been not so spring looking this week. It snowed a little
last night. Not too awful bad, but it could of passed us by and
we wouldn’t of been upset hehehe. The wind’s blowing rather
vigorously today. It’s 14 F degrees right now which was the
high for today. It’s beginning to get colder as the hours pass.
Tonight’s high is supposed to be 5 F degrees. Nope, it don’t
seem much like spring. We’ve still got mega tons of snow in
our field of view. Benny is still loving it and Milo can take it
or leave it LOL. Boy that wind is blowing strong out there :)
We’re supposed to have 15 to 25 MPH winds with 45 MPH
gust this evening and I think they have begun. Yep, I fill the
wind as it hits our house. It causes my PC monitor to rock
back and forth hehehe. Judy went for some lab test at the
hospital in Bangor last Tuesday and she goes back this week
for surgery on her legs. It’s a routine surgery, but they are
also going to check some other things. Me and the boys will
have a long wait, but it’ll be worth it for Judy to be able to
walk again without hurting so bad. We’re going to get some
bicycles and pet/kid trailers to pull behind them so that the
boys can come with us when we go for bike rides. I can’t
wait! We’re trusting that her surgery will go well and she
will have less hip problems. Anyways, it started snowing
almost halfway to Bangor Tuesday and it snowed all the way
home. I do love snow, but I hate it when it begins to turn to
plain old ice or worse yet, slush. That’s what’s soon to be
all we’ll see for a great while until all of the snow has melted
away hehehe. Sheesh, that wind is slamming against our
house hard. I had to stop and go and check on Milo because
he was barking at the bathroom door. I guess he thought
Judy was in there LOL. Nope Milo, mom’s not home. The
bathroom door stays shut to put less strain on our furnace
and save on heating oil. The only vent in this end of the
house that’s opened is the one in the bathroom. We’ve
got 2 radiator heaters heating our bedroom and the PC
room. One in the bedroom and one in here. That’s so
the furnace only has to keep the other end of the house
from letting the pipes freeze. We stay in the PC room
most of the time. It’s the warmest room in the house as
the radiator heater along with computers and monitors
tend to keep this room at around 70 F degrees all the
time. Benny keeps us informed if someone pulls up in
our driveway or one of the others. :) He goes ballistic
when someone comes to the door or he happens to hear
a knock of any sorts. Often the knock is either Judy
or me bumping something and we have to holler and
say it was just us Benny hehehe. Old Milo is pretty laid
back. Though he does knock at the PC room door if
he’s gotta go potty and if that don’t get our attention,
he’ll start barking like he was just a little bit ago at the
bathroom door LOL. Yes, it gets goofy around here
from time to time hehehe. My old tummy is growling.
That bowl of cereal I ate this morning has done worn
off. I might fix me and the boys something to eat in
a little bit. Egg sandwiches sound good. I fried up
some bacon the other day and I saved some of it to
give to the boys as treats. I’m sure they’ll love that.
It’s 10 F degrees now at 6:13 PM. Yep, it’s getting
colder. Benny wanted to go outside and potty, but
I figure he will wanna stay outside for a little longer
than Milo usually stays out, because Benny likes to
play in the snow. I’ll go check on him in a little bit.
Milo is in here with me lying in a doggy bed with his
face near the heater hehehe. He loves that heater :)
I just went to check on Benny and he was ready to
come back inside hehehe. Milo got up and went with
me to check on him. Milo looks out for his little bro.
When Benny came in they both ran side by side down
through the kitchen and into the PC room (in here).
They’re both lying down in their beds in here now :)
It feels as though they have always been with us.
It’s weird how quickly they grew to be a part of our
family that seems to have always been here. The
winds seems to have died down a little. Thank God!
I thought we were gonna blow away hehehe. Every
time I opened the front storm door to let the boys out
I had to hang onto it or it would of blown off it’s hinges.
Friday was the first day of spring and it sure doesn’t
look like it up here hehehe. We still go snow blind if
we look outside without sunshades on LOL. One day
when Mister Winter finally decides to take a hike,
we might see a portion of springtime. Of course up
here, this is the normal for springtime hehehehe.
I can’t wait till me and Judy get our bikes and the
trailers for the boys. We’re gonna have fun taking
rides together taking pictures as we go and maybe
just maybe we might both start losing some weight.
That would be nice. Of course everybody says that
I look right for Santa hehehe. Santa needs to lose
some pounds. I get tired of having to ask the weight
limit on chairs before I sit down hehehe. I know, I’m
not that fat, or maybe I’m am :). I say I am. Hmm,
what else is there to ramble about? It looks like I’m
running out of things to say. Who’d of thunk it LOL!
All I have left to say this far is that God has been
watching out for us. He has protected us and cared
for us through every trouble that’s come our way.
Thank You God for never giving up on us and always
having angels watching over us. If you ever feel
alone, look up and say hello, because God is always
watching and waiting to hear from you. He might
not remove the road blocks, but he will give you
a way to get through them or another path to follow.
Now, I believe it’s time for me to be taking my lil
trip back through all that I’ve written here to see
if I can find me a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem. So, it’s
away I go to that lil place of my recollection that I
always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. Oh yea,
I managed to find all of the poems and haiku that
were not on this PC. Judy had them on hers so
I just imported them over here with a flash drive.
So now I can check for sure to make sure that a
title has not been used hehehe. Hmm, it looks
like I may have found a decent title and now after
checking, I see that it hasn’t been used yet by me.
So here goes nothing, but I surely hope not LOL.

Say Hello

As winter leaves
with melting snow
seek for spring
and say hello.
Search the doorways
opened wide
as dear spring
then comes inside.
Watch the white snow
melt away
as it slowly
shows spring day.
When dear spring
is then begun
say hello
to mornings sun.
Let the white snow
live in place
of a winters
smiling face.
For when springtime
starts it’s show
see the beauty
say hello.

Yes, I know, that wasn’t a very good poem, but they
can’t all be winners ya know hehehe. I hope it at least
brought you a smile. Also I hope my rambling made ya
giggle a little LOL. I never know if what I’m writing is
going to make any sense to anybody but me and there
are times that it don’t even make sense to me hehehe.
WOW, the wind has picked back up again. I can hear
it blowing. Hehehe It seems my monitor has turned into
a pendulum as it rocks back and forth. It makes it just
a little bit difficult to read what I’ve written to check
for typo’s hehehe. I’ll still give it a whirl after I finish
writing. But now, I believe it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you almost every week and that is, I wrote
some more poems and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems,
but none of them are Christmas poems, being up until
today I was unable to check for duplicate titles hehehe.
Maybe next week :) like you’re actually wanting to
read Christmas poems, huh hehehe. I send them to
my friend Ben Geurts in Holland and he posts them
on his Old Fashioned Christmas site. A link to it is
at the very end of the journal. Oh and yes I also once
again wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there :) I hope you can find something you like
that makes you smile and even think. Now, I reckon
it’s time for me to be searching for that not so elusive
off switch, but not before I wish you a most blessed
weekend or whatever’s left of it and a most wonderful
prayerful week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now, where is that confounded off switch at
this time. Hmm, I wonder! Yep, hiding under my
keyboards again. Dude don’t you realize that if I see
it wobbling, I’m gonna look. Try harder next time.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Without Thinking True

While many going hurrying
through their days chores
they might then be often
be stuck with sad shores.
Troublesome moments found
from what all they did
while without thinking true
they might overbid.
Sometimes our hurried times
can become a bomb
found as exploding
as our time moves along.
Leaving a dusty trail
in the shadows of time
that’s from the devastation
of time frames land mine.
For without thinking true
you might just be found
standing at the doorway
of all Hell gone down.

Looking Through The Darkness

Throughout the night sky
with clouds overhead
looking through the darkness
might fill you with dread.
Yet it’s the darkness
that gives time for sleep
dreaming of the things
while you’re counting sheep.
But I know that often times
sleep is not found
looking through the darkness
at sights all around.
Searching through the shadows
of nighttime’s surmise
seeing the clouds forming
real high in the skies.
You might find you something
that darkness unveiled
that is God’s angels
with Heaven entailed.
Found as many blessings
dancing around
looking through the darkness
your Heaven is found.

The True Joy Of Life

Finding our blessings
through all of the strife
many might find then
the true joy of life.
Often our blessings
are hidden from sight
throughout our journeys
of left ways and right.
It’s with the patterns
of our lives composed
that the true joy of life
is often exposed.
Maybe a doorway
that we’ve entered through
might show the answers
from wrong things we do.
The true joy of life
could be found in a frame
sometimes as portions
that we thought so lame.
Let not your past days
of yesterdays strife
hide all the blessings
the true joy of life.

Within A Little Prayer

As hearts connect
from everywhere
hope is found
within a little prayer.
Peaceful thoughts
from you and me
within a little prayer
makes history.
The changes made
with many found
within a little prayer
is town to town.
It only takes
a moments time
within a little prayer
to be sublime.
So now today
let God show you
within a little prayer

Time Flies By

While time is ticking
time flies by
leaving us questions
of where and why.
When is discussion
as who is implied
while time ticks ahead on
its own little ride.
Soon times connections
are found face to face
as it flies surely
to its point and place.
It’s our perceptions
that create many views
as time flies by
to its own bit of news.
Sometimes illusions
of whether or why
become all the answers
as time flies by.

The Imaginary Fire

On the TV screen
is all my desire
flames all igniting
the imaginary fire.
A video fireplace
burning so bright
seeming as warmth
that feels oh so right.
Yet it’s imaginary
not burning true
as the fire burns
right here in my view.
The imaginary fire
is something I see
flickering flames
for you and for me.
We watch it together
as time moves along
the imaginary fire
until it is gone.

To Judy Ann Pearce
From William Earl Pearce II

Looking For Mysteries

Seeking for changes
searching for sights
looking for mysteries
often excites.
Taking some chances
walking a way
looking for mysteries
comes into play.
Sometimes a porthole
of time opens up
filling our wantings
a curious cup.
Looking for mysteries
often entwines
things we’ve envisioned
mysterious times.
Often shortsighted
will hide many keys
when you are found
looking for mysteries.

Grinding Pages

This day and age
of certain stages
sometimes seems
as grinding pages.
Books relentless
churning words
grinding pages
of absurds.
Many a motion
find a place
grinding pages
life’s rat race.
It seems many
have lost God
as they seek
their own applaud.
Grinding pages
surely show
how so many
come and go.
Thinking only
of themselves
leaving Jesus
on their shelves.
Not allowing
better ages
while they’re always
grinding pages.

The Last Of Winter

The snow is melting
spring is here
the last of winter
is sincere.
It shows snowflakes
still to fall,
but it’s end is
soon to call.
Each day’s closer
soon to gaze
found within
what spring displays.
The last of winter
still has time
to show snowflakes
last design.
Soon the snow will
melt away
the last of winter
and its way.

Searching For Myself

I can remember
those times long ago
searching for myself
and what I should know.
Things I recall now
from moments despair
times that I acted
without not a care.
Searching for myself
and who I should be
I found in the future
was always just me.
While looking at others
I sought to compare
and found that I was
just so unaware.
My own personality
was loud and clear
while searching for myself
in that yesteryear.

Haiku
for Mar 21, 2015

Life in existence
brings forth many passing days
that we know not of.

Confusion excites
when it’s filled with some turnstiles
that could be better.

The wonders of time
are counted as emotion
as minutes tick on.

Long lost family
can rekindle in Heaven
as life has ended.

Morning brings shadows
that come from many viewpoints
as the sun heads west.

A bicycle chain
has many links holding it
as it propels you.

A moments doorway
might be closed for a reason
that you’re not ready.

Liking a pathway
could turn out very sour
if you walk blindly.

Many a person
will often change who they are
before deciding.

Looking for passion
needs you to be passionate
within your own life.

One that’s a liar,
often continues lying,
so do not be fooled.

People without heart
will trample your existence
without thinking twice.

Hindered emotions
might turn into some regrets
so learn to express.

Nobody’s someone
just because they did something.
We are all someone.

As life moves along
the stages we’re on will change
creating new scenes.

Patterns of turnstiles
are as some squeaking loudly
and some not so loud.

Heaven awaits us
as our lives continue on
with minutes counting.

The bright front porch light
helps us to see much clearer
where our dogs might go.

Harnessing sunlight
gives power to move mountains
one grain at a time.

Thinking you know best
might expose your ignorance
for things you don’t know.

Sometimes we are wrong
no matter how you view it,
so learn some acceptance.

Looks of tomorrow
might change with its arrival
so don’t hold your breath.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s snowing vigorously at the moment :). I had to go
out and shovel our steps and part of our driveway so
that the boys could go potty. Milo tried to go out and
pee a few hours ago and couldn’t get beyond the first
step LOL. I walked out to check the mail before I did
the shoveling and that was a chore. The snow all the
way to the mailbox was at least a foot or more deep :)
The roads looked nasty. It’s whiteout conditions and
so Judy didn’t have to go to her sister’s house to take
care of her mom being Judy’s sister didn’t go to work
either hehehe. My old back is aching right now from
shoveling snow. While I was outside shoveling, Benny
and Milo came out to go potty and Benny was so happy
that he stayed out with me waiting for me to finish. He
was jumping up on my leg wanting me to pet him LOL.
Judy took a few pictures of me shoveling and Benny
jumping up wanting me to pet him. Although it was
a little hard to shovel and pet him at the same time ;)
When walking to the mailbox I took a video there and
back. In the mean time my right hand that had no glove
on it got a little frozen being I needed it free to use my
camera and can’t work the buttons with my glove on.
Judy was rinsing out soda cans and I borrowed the
water faucet for a brief to thaw out my fingers hehehe.
So yes it is snowing and I see no sign of it stopping
any time soon. It looks like it may snow on through
the night and it’s supposed to snow again Tuesday :)
I don’t mind the snow as long as we haven’t gotta go
no where or I haven’t gotta shovel too much, but it’s
looking like I may have to go and shovel again being
it’s snowing so heavily and the winds blowing so much.
We’ve already gotten well over a foot of snow today.
With that added to what we already had, there’s a
few megatons of snow out there hehehe. It’s hard to
believe that spring is just 5 days away LOL. Nope it
shows no sign of it up here. Oh yea, my Windows 8
PC died and I have to send it to my friend at Century
Computer in Texas to have it fixed, so in the mean
time my reliable Windows XP will be doing all of the
work. Many of my poems and journals are on my
Windows 8 PC so I can’t really check too well to see
if I have duplicate poem titles, but I can check on
what I have on this PC. Hopefully they can get my
Windows 8 PC fixed, because it has many of my old
family pictures on it not to mention many of my poems
that I haven’t got on this PC. Reason being, Windows
8 Windows Live mail is not compatible with Outlook
Express and no way that I’ve found that I can move
them to Outlook Express. Oh well, life goes on :)
So, what all has happened this passed week? That’s
a good question! Our landlord finally made it over to
sort of fix our front storm door to where it will shut.
It’s far from perfect, but it will do till he can get back
and fix it better. My tummy’s grumbling. I haven’t
eaten yet today. I had another rough morning with
my stomach and allergies so I didn’t feel like eating
when Judy ate this morning. Of course the reason she
was eating this morning was because she was planning
on heading over to her sister’s house up until she got
a message from her saying forget it, because she’s
not getting out in this mess LOL. After Judy saw how
bad it was getting, she was glad that she didn’t have
to go out in the mess hehehe. I just heard the snow
plows head down the road again. They’ll be busy all
evening the way that it’s snowing, because when I
walked out to the mailbox and headed back, I couldn’t
tell where I had walked. All my tracks had already
disappeared. As I look out the window right now it
looks like it hasn’t eased up any on the snowing LOL.
The wind is still blowing pretty heavily also. Yep :)
it looks like I will have to go out and shovel again so
that the boys can get out to go potty. Milo is right
behind me eating some dried dog food and Benny is
lying down right beside him waiting his turn hehehe.
Milo got done and now Benny is eating. There are
3 pans of dried food, but the silly boys seems to
always eat from the same pan. If Milo eats from
another Benny will wait right behind kind of like
monkey see, monkey do hehehe. Benny will eat
anything that Milo eats LOL. Before we got Milo
we couldn’t get Benny to eat a few dried foods and a
few other dog foods, but now if he sees Milo eating
it he figures it must be good, so give him some LOL.
They’re both lying down in the floor sleeping now.
I think I need to change out my keyboards. This
PC has a smaller keyboard than I am used to and
it makes it a bit difficult with my big hands. My old
fingers tend to hit 2 keys at a time being the buttons
are so small. Plus the fact this keyboard is BLACK.
The keyboard that I am used to typing on is a white
Labtec and the buttons are twice the size hehehe.
Every freaking time I try to hit the enter button on
this keyboard I end up hitting the buttons above or
below which above is the brackets and below is the
shift button hehehe. So, as soon as I get my other
PC unplugged and packed for delivery I’ll be also
switching out the keyboards until the day that I get
my PC back from Texas. Then I will be switching
my big monitor and keyboard back to it. For the
mean time this will do. It seems our home is still
alive and well and God is still looking out for us.
We have our share of struggles, but nothing like
what we see many others dealing with. There is
always someone worse off than you, but they may
not see it that way. It’s the owner of the problems
that puts and value of their struggles. Yet, if we
would more times just accept what that is there
we might not view the problems as large as they
might of seemed. Let God show you all of the
blessings that you may have been overlooking
due to your own shortsightedness. Look at the
grand picture. Find all of the joy that you have
experienced and rekindle it in your mind. Often
it’s just our perception that determines the grand
scale of our problems. Often someone else might
look at your life and say, you are so very lucky.
Find the blessings and don’t stay focused on the
bad times. Now I believe I need to take 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 place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. Hmm,
it seems I may have found a title that I haven’t
already used, so let’s give it a try hehehehehe.
Here goes

Just Accept What That Is

So often we will worry
and struggle hard to find
a portion of a moment
with a little peace of mind.
Just accept what that is
for so often that’s the case
that will show you the blessings
from your daily rat race.
So many will be found just
looking at their troubles
and making them much larger
as they display their doubles.
The windows of acceptance
will most often give a way
to find you some peacefulness
day after day.
So, don’t always be looking
at the problems in place,
just accept what that is
and find a smile on your face.

Yes, I wrote that to myself LOL as I do many of my
poems. Hopefully it will help you as well. There are
a ton of things that are out of my grasp for fixing so
I need to accept them as they are and find the many
blessings that God has given me and be happy. I’m sure
that many of you have problems dealing with things
out of your control as well. Hehehe I have to face the
fact that it will still be snowing come spring time LOL.
I don’t mind it, but I’m not looking forward to all of
the slush that will follow when the snow starts to melt.
Yuck! Forget about washing the car LOL. It’ll just
get messy once you drive out of the car wash hehehe.
Anyways, there’s not much else to tell ya. We live
such an exciting life hehehe. So I reckon it’s time
for me to tell you what I tell you almost every week
and that is, I wrote some more poems and haiku :)
Yeppers, 10 more poems and 22 haiku for all of my
haiku lovers out there. Nope no Christmas poems
this week LOL. Maybe next week. So with that said
I guess I need to start my search for that confounded
off switch, but not before I wish you a most joyful
weekend or whatever is left of it and a blessings filled
week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too.
OK, so where is that off switch hiding this time????
I see ya you silly little varmint. Hiding on top of my
messed up PC won’t save you. You keep hanging your
legs over the side of it kicking them as if I won’t see
it LOL. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Tomorrow’s Gaze

With sights and sounds
from other days
we might just find
tomorrow’s gaze.
Found inside
a moments glance
there might be
some song and dance.
Many a moment
of time in view
might be things
we thought so true.
Tomorrow’s gaze
could become seen
more than merely
just a dream.
Pathways written
distant days
might be inside
tomorrow’s gaze.

A Kiss of Winter

As days bring forth
a kiss of winter
the time ticks on
for spring to enter.
Scenes begin their
changing ways
a kiss of winter
then just fades.
Leaving echoes
scenes to shine
a little snow
from wintertime.
A kiss of winter
soon becomes
a kiss of spring
to summers sun.
Each kiss fondly
displays true
it’s own timely
seasons view.

Disheartened Plans

When things go wrong
and plans are blown
don’t just sit
and grunt and groan.
Seek a better
place in time
for a smile
to surely find.
Think of good times
surely so
not disheartened
filled with woe.
For we’re surely
guaranteed
of a few times
dismal seed.
So don’t let your
can’t and cans
be filled with
disheartened plans.

Not Forgotten

Soon our journeys
will end true
leaving others
our own view.
Not forgotten
when we die
we are beacons
in the sky.
Ones might wonder
how and when
not forgotten
does begin,
but the answers
are with God
even though some
might seem odd.
Not forgotten
pages turn
with some lessons
we’ll discern.
Maybe not so
great to see,
but they still
teach you and me.

Life Begins

With a heartbeat
life begins
then in time
it surely ends.
That’s our lives
with passing time
life begins
as yours and mine.
Each with prospect
soon to see
life begins
to be what’ll be.
Days of yonder
began so
that through Jesus
surely grow.
Lessons painted
loss and wins
is what’s learned
when life begins.

Winter Lives

With snow of March
that time derives
winter lives
somehow survives.
Mornings gazing
brings to view
scenes we’re seeing
thereunto.
Winter lives
as flakes of white
way up here
each day and night.
March has hidden
springs detail
as some snowflakes
then set sail.
Winter lives
as life moves on
then until
its time is gone.
Here in Maine
winds whirl and whiz,
for in March then
winter lives.

Turbulent Thoughts

While in alone ville
I have time to think
the turbulent thoughts
of time frames to drink.
Found in a river
of thoughts long ago
the turbulent thoughts
continue to grow.
Seasons of footsteps
paving a way
the river of time is
day after day.
Turbulent thoughts
from alone villes design
then come alive
and surely unwind.
Finding the good times
from what was thought lost
this is alone villes
turbulent thoughts.

Waiting On God

Often we’ll hurry
and worry alot
while waiting on God
we’ve surely forgot.
Many things happen
as our mysteries
sometimes as calm
and then crashing seas.
Patiently waiting
will often be found
with many blessings
that God sends around.
Yet often hurry
will lead us astray
when we’re not waiting
for God to display.
Lessons are endless
with time frames abroad
and often it’s better when
waiting on God.

A Snow Looking Cloud

A day looking upwards
brings clouds looking down
and a snow looking cloud
that’s spreading around.
Snowflakes of journeys
are gathering true
as a snow looking cloud
just adds to my view.
Seasonal winds blow
with moments quite proud
as I look upward
at a snow looking cloud.
The pages of journals
from its history
a snow looking cloud
creates what I see.
Scenes so transfixing
as I look around
are a snow looking cloud
that right now looks down.

My Flashlight

The dark of night’s
not dark at all
as my flashlight
helps recall.
Lighting pathways
here and there
yes my flashlight
shines a glare.
No the darkness
cannot when
for my flashlight’s
never dim.
It shines brightly
in the night
with its little
beam of light.
There’s no shadows
that scare me,
for my flashlight
helps me see.

Haiku
for Mar 14, 2015

Without a moment
life has a very slim chance
for learning lessons.

When looking upwards
you might see a few snowflakes
or maybe some rain.

One that’s a liar
could find himself being caught
as truth is displayed.

Halfway to today
could find a few thoughts at night
filled with some regrets.

As the day finds end
many thoughts might come alive
asking some questions.

Nobody’s perfect
for we are all imperfect,
but perfect to God.

Looks of another
might not show their true colors.
Don’t be quick to judge.

Painting a picture
can be done with memories
found in a moment.

The depth of your heart
will display as time goes by
either shallow or deep.

Without some windows
there’s so much that we would miss
without stepping out.

Time can be funny
as it ticks on with laughter
and maybe some frowns.

A paper story
can be wadded up and burned,
so make it as heard.

Nearing tomorrow
finds episodes imagined
that may not come true.

Beyond a snowflake
is a wintery turnstile
filled with some breezes.

A brick laid fireplace
displays a chimney so high
with smoke flowing out.

Loss of a loved one
could create an empty void,
but God intervenes.

Finding a footprint
could disclose a good pathway
or maybe not so.

Life in misery
will often find you alone
if you whine too much.

Belief in others
can open a door to yourself
as you look beyond.

Pointless perception
might find you standing alone
because no one cares.

Love can be splendor
if it’s truly from the heart
and not just shallow.

Minutes show seconds
that many might overlook
due to the hours.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another sort of eventful week around here.  Friday
we took our car and got the door fixed.  Judy was so thrilled
when she opened the driver side door with the handle like it
is supposed to be able to be opened LOL.  They washed our
car while they had it.  Of course that carwash didn’t last long
due to the weather up here hehehe.  It was snowing heavily
a little while ago.  Milo needed to go out and potty and when
Benny saw it snowing,  he came a running for the door wanting
to go out and play.  Milo came right back in when he was done,
but Benny wanted to stay out and play,  so I checked on him
a little later and through a little coaxing I was able to get him
to come back in,  but he was in no way ready to come back
in.  I didn’t want to leave him out there and get caught up on
my writing and him end up out there for an hour or so.  It’s
28 F degrees.  I know that’s not too cold,  but I don’t want
him to get sick.  Benny’s lying in a doggy bed right beside
me at this moment.  He’s sound asleep.  Milo was in here
sleeping,  but decided to hop up on our bed and sleep and
so that’s where he is right now.  It really hasn’t been too
exciting around here this passed week.  I guess the most
exciting thing was Judy’s youngest daughter brought her
son (our grandson) and he stayed here while Helena went to
work.  Christian said he wants to come back again hehehe.
He might be back again next Saturday.  It seems that he
enjoyed himself.  He played with many of my gadgets and
he goofed around on Judy’s PC.  We watched a few TV
programs as well.  Helena came and picked him up when
she got off of work last night and she visited for a little
while.  Judy took down our Christmas tree last night :)
She figured it was March and time for it to be put away.
I hope you remembered to change your clocks if you
happen to be in a place that they do that ignorant thing.
Yes,  I think it’s ignorant.  Just what do they think it’s
saving,  when not everybody does it?  I think that the
daylight savings time should be abolished from all of
the states.  It does no good as far as I can see other
than confuse peoples internal clocks hehehe.  There’s
not much use for it if you ask me.  Nope,  I say leave
the time alone.  It’s crazy enough as it is.  Oh yeah,
our neighbors next door moved.  Our landlord said he
has somebody moving in one of the front trailers soon,
so we’ll have neighbors again LOL.  It don’t matter
to me,  but I do enjoy having someone to talk to other
than Judy and the boys hehehe.  Being way out in the
boonies hinders the chance for making friends.  Oh
well,  I’ll survive.  I will miss Mark and Charlene a
little bit though.  There’s been a few neighbors that
I have gotten to know well and it hurt when they left.
I guess that’s part of life.  My right eye is getting
very weak now and I might have to pause for a bit
and rest it.  Being with only one good eye it puts a
lot of pressure on the one.  So,  I’ll be back in a bit.
I’m back.  I took about an hour nap to rest my eye
and it seems to be a little stronger now.  Actually
I just laid there with my eyes closed and listened to
music,  but it helped.  Benny is still sleeping in the
floor in here.  I had to move Milo over because he
was sleeping in my spot LOL.  Sleep’s not something
that I get in a great abundance nowadays due to a
number of health issues,  so I try to grab a wink or
two whenever I can.  It’s 6:30 and already getting
dark outside.  We might have a few days above
the freezing mark this week.  That’s gonna bring
about a bit of slush as some snow melts hehehehe.
It’s supposed to snow off and on throughout the
week so the snow shall be replenished without a
doubt.  I hope our landlord makes it over soon to
fix our front storm door.  It’s in a bad way and it’s
needing some TLC.  Our landlord was supposed
to come and fix it yesterday,  but maybe he will
show up tomorrow LOL.  We’ll survive I reckon!
It’s getting darker now.  By the time it’s 7 PM it’ll
be pitch black outside at this rate.  Milo needed
to go outside again and as usual, Benny wanted to
go outside too and so Milo is already back inside
and Benny,  well you know the story hehehe. I’ll
check on him in a bit.  I’m going to have to record
North Woods Law and Ax men tonight because I’m
sure Judy won’t be home in time to watch them :)
I may have to record a couple of other programs
if she’s running late tonight.  Life at the Pearce’s.
Not the most exciting world LOL!  I was surprised
that our grandson wanted to come back.  We are
kind of boring hehehe.  But,  he’s always welcome.
I wish my daughter and granddaughter could come
up,  but aside from finances,  Jayme’s daughter,
(our granddaughter) is not doing so well.  She was
born with Spinal Bifida and she’s had some real
bad infections.  She’s in Scottish Rite Hospital
in Dallas Texas right now.  Please send her your
prayers.  I’m sure my daughter Jamye could use
some prayers right now as she tries her best to
take care of Sami.  Poor little Sami has always
stayed strong through all of her health issues.
Sami’s 15 years old now and a strong little girl.
I love them and miss them both terribly,  but I
know God is always in control.  Now I’ve gotta
go and check on Benny.  I’ll be back.  I’m back.
Benny is in here now with me and Milo.  Ain’t we
exciting!????  LOL not much happens,  but we’re
content.  God has blessed our house with His love
and we can feel it.  We have our share of troubles,
but He always gives us a way to deal with them.
I’m sure you’re life is filled with a few problems
that you might view as enormous,  but to God they
are just turning points of our lives that if used in
the right way can make us stronger and wiser.  So
don’t view the problems as defeating,  but as some
building blocks of life.  With that said,  I believe
it’s time for me to begin my quest back through all
that I’ve written here,   to see if I can find a word
or phrase that I can use for the title for today’s
brand new poem.  And so it’s away I go to that lil
place of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  Though I do think I found
a good title just a few lines back and I see that it
has not be used yet,  by me of course and so then
it shall be used hehehe.   Here goes nothing.

Building Blocks Of Life

Times that we’ve trembled,
and found then some strife
they were just moments
building blocks of life
Doorways to troubles
with scenes we’ve exposed
building blocks of life
show our highs and lows.
Seemed as so warranted
reasons thought clear
building blocks of life
will surely appear.
Sometimes as patterns
a rhythm or two
building blocks of life
will come into view.
Often tomorrows
will mimic today
building blocks of life
to clear up the grey.
Don’t let your worries
to hold you in place
building blocks of life
are seasoned with Grace.
God and His Glory
are always at hand
building blocks of life
to help us withstand.
Truly confusions
real hard to derive
are with some answers
building blocks of life.
Then as the doorways
of yesterdays dawn
building blocks of life
will help us move on.

Ok,  there ya go.  I know,  it isn’t that great,  but I did
the best I could with that title hehehe.  So,  what else is
there to tell ya?  Well,  hmm,  It looks like I will be doing
some bouncing back and forth recording programs on the
TV in here and in the bedroom LOL.  I’ve got 3 different
channels to record with 2 of them at the same timeframe.
Hehehe what I do for that woman :).  Ain’t we exciting!
Benny and Milo are both in the floor sound asleep in their
beds.  Yep right behind and beside me.  They’re my little
guard dogs hehehe.  Nobodies gonna sneak in on me LOL.
Milo’s snoring now.  LOL,  he woke himself with his snore.
He sat up and looked at me and then laid back down and
went back to sleep.  As if it was me that snored and woke
him up hehehe.  Here’s another bit of info.  Judy’s sister
Barbara went to Australia a week or so ago and she took
tons of pictures.  I haven’t downloaded any YET,  but
I will.  Anyways,  she’s back in Maine now.  I’m guessing
she might have a tad bit of jet lag LOL.  I myself don’t
see myself flying anywhere anytime soon hehehe, but
I will most assuredly be taking more pictures of our
scenery here in Maine.  You never know what I might
take a picture of,  but during this time of the year,  you
can almost bank on it having snow in it hehehe.  Darn
it,  a program that wasn’t supposed to be until 9 o clock
came on at 8 and so I missed 5 minutes of its recording.
That’s what I mean about daylight savings time.  It
messes up everything.  TV broadcasts are all out of
place.  Oh well,  It’s recording now :)  Now,  is there
anything else that I have forgotten to tell ya?  Nope,
I can’t think of anything.  So I reckon it’s time for me
to be telling you what I tell you almost every week
and that is,  I that wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers 10 more poems with one of them being sort
of Christmassy.  Also I wrote once agin 22 haiku for
all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can find
one or two of either or both that you like.  Now,  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 or whatever is left of it and a truly blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Ok,  where are ya hiding at ya silly off switch?
Hopefully you’ve put more thought into your hiding
spot than you have in the past hehehe.  Oh for crying
out loud,  couldn’t you have at least ducked down a
little?  Standing right behind a clear bottle of eyedrops
does not conclude as hiding ya numbskull hehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Twilight Solitude

Starlight shining
in the night
is mesmerizing
great twilight.
The solitude from
up above
shines as twilight
filled with love.
Twilight solitude
nights to share
gives us all a
breath of air.
If we would only
search to find
we would maybe then
see a sign.
Twinkling essence
we might see
is twilight solitude
God gave free.

Without Delay

Looking for good times
in every which way
might find you bad times
and without delay.
Don’t let your hurry to
take you off course
for without delay
can be hinder force.
Hindering choices
you thought out so well
without delay might
send you to Hell.
Sometimes it’s better to
think out your plan
before you set out to
see if you can.
Often your conscience
can teach you more true
what without delay might
cause you to do.

Through The Mist

As warm air rises
from the cold
a misty morning
I’ll behold.
Eyes with passion
looking out
through the mist
and all about.
Scenes becoming
such a sight
through the day
and through the night.
Through the mist
I see myself
as a shadow
on a shelf.
Loosely standing
God’s assist
my own shadow’s
through the mist.

Heartstrings

True emotions
come alive
as some heartstrings
that arrive.
Some so simple
as a smile
are the heartstrings
that compile.
Windows opened
letting in
times of heartstrings
to begin.
Each with patterns
gathered true
are the heartstrings
me and you.
Found so simply
faraway
our own heartstrings
live today.

Phoenix Rising

Through the ashes
lives can grow
phoenix rising
from the fro.
Times remembered
costing ways
phoenix rising

Lessons learned from
touch and voice
phoenix rising
gives a choice.
Letting passed days
become tools
phoenix rising
not just fools.
Let your passed days
become found
phoenix rising
better ground.

A Room of Thoughts

A place where thinking
comes alive
is the place where
times survive.
A room of thoughts
with inner sights
of Decembers
Christmas lights.
The thoughts are found
as moments scenes
some as great
as living dreams.
Beyond our eyesight
thereunto
the thoughts I think
might just come true
Christmas moments
are never lost
deep within
a room of thoughts.

The Great Thaw

Winters ending
might now seem
as but only
just a dream.
The great thaw
of wintertime
might be seen
in late springtime.
All the snow
that’s now in place
my then thaw
as rivers race.
Every snowflake
that has landed
soon will be what
has disbanded.
Melting snowflakes
that did fall
will soon be as
the great thaw.

Looking Down

Looking up
and looking down
might not show
what’s all around.
Looking left
and looking right
might still lose
what’s plain in sight.
Many seeking
searching true
might look up
and not at You.
Yet God’s answers
are right there
maybe as
a breath of air.
Sometimes people
will just frown
as they’re always
looking down.
Raise your head up
and see true.
Find what Lord God
has for you.
Looking down might
just give way
to another
dismal day.

A Snow White Canvas

As seasons are turning
and changes are made
a snow white canvas
is Heavenly laid.
Painted with brushstrokes
of angels divine
the canvas of white is
found wintertime.
A snow white canvas
of chilling detail
is helped with the winds
and snowflakes set sail.
The canvas that’s painted
becomes a page
turned as a book read
found center stage.
A snow white canvas
displays its hue
found within winter
as dreams come true.

Inner Light

With our feelings
inner light
we might find
a better sight.
Deep within us
blessings grow
inner light
to daily show.
Yet so many
look away
from their inner
light each day.
Them not seeing
what is there
inner light
that comes from prayer.
Let your heartbeat
find what’s right
from God’s truth
The Inner Light.

Haiku
for Mar 6,  2015

Looking within you
there might be your reflection
seeking to know you.

Our lost perceptions
could be the problems in life
that hinder our growth.

Morning brings doorways
that open and close with time
to change our choices.

Continued lying
could become a bad tumor
that loses your friends.

Life in a storm cloud
might seem as a lonely one,
but others are there.

Ones misconceptions
could destroy what’s possible
and end in despair.

Looking for a friend
needs you first to become one
and friends will be found.

Portions of a dream
might seem as reality,
but do not be fooled.

Waking to nightmares
could be caused by decisions
that you have allowed.

Torment of snowflakes
is often that of a hater
of the wintertime.

The leaves of springtime
come alive as the snow melts
leaving pure waters.

Lessons from others
might not stay with us as long
as mistakes we’ve made.

One’s we thought smarter
might not be so smart at all
without common sense.

Pointing at others
does not remove your own place,
as ones point at you.

Painting with passion
needs true pallets of Jesus
within the brushstrokes.

Lumbering footsteps
leave a clear trail to follow
that’s in no hurry.

Wisdom of a mind
comes to be with history,
lessons discovered.

Pointless is a lie
for it does not live with truth
and it soon will die.

Snow falling from trees
makes a thud upon the ground
soon followed be more.

Misery gathered
is a fly on flypaper
joined with a few more.

Today offers hope
for a new you to be born
from your passed lessons.

A song in the heart
can become a sweet chorus
if God is The Words.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope your passed week has been well and your weekend
has not been too stressful.  Judy and I have been doing OK.
Benny and Milo are being ornery as ever LOL.  Milo had to
go to the vet Friday and get his shots.  Now he is up to date
the same as Benny.  The weather has seemed to of calmed
down a little bit up here.  Right now it’s 28 F degrees,  but
this morning it was –8 F degrees.  That’s still not too awful
bad.  The snowing has calmed down for the moment.  I don’t
see much snow for the next few days.  Just a few inches or
so tonight through Monday morning and maybe a little bit
Tuesday night through Wednesday morning.  Time will tell!
Yeppers,  the old snowmaker is taking a breather or so it
seems.  We still have tons of that white stuff outside and
every time we look outside without sunshades we go snow
blind.  Yep,  that’s quite a mirror out there hehehe.  Mister
Sun shines brightly on it :)  Even the moon makes night like
day as it’s light is reflected off of the snow.  On a clear night
who needs a porch light?  Not us hehehe!  We do have to
watch our step as we walk down the steps,  because there
is often ice on them.  especially at the bottom of the steps
where the snow has refroze and turned to ice.  I know :),
you’re saying isn’t snow already ice?  Yes it is,  but in its
snow based flake form,  it isn’t slick to walk on,  but when
it has melted slightly due to the sunlight and then refroze
it becomes that old slick and slippery ice that causes ones
to slip and slide and fall on their butts like I’ve done a few
times hehehe.  I was walking Milo outside the vets office
so he could go potty and he led me to a place that didn’t
look that bad,  but when my feet landed on it I found out
that it was no longer just snow,  but a thin sheet of ice and
my feet went sliding causing me to fall and land flat on my
backside LOL OUCH.  I’m OK,  it’s not the first time that
I have done that.  I might of been wearing my cleats if we
had been at home,  but cleats are real hard on floor mats
so I don’t wear them in the car.  Also if I had been aware
of that slick spot I would have stayed in the snow hehehe.
He apparently did not need to potty.  He was just wanting
to explore.  We were done at the vet and were ready to
head home.  He was just scratching at the car door and
all like he needed to go potty,  but nope.  Just wanted to
look around and watch daddy fall on his butt hehehehe.
Benny and Milo are lying in the floor next to me sound
asleep.  Judy is over at her sister’s house as she is almost
every Sunday taking care of her mom while Judy’s sister
Trudy goes to work.  It actually makes it easy for me to
do my writing hehehe.  When she’s home,  Milo begins
barking at her for treats.  LOL he knows he’ll get yelled
at if he does that to me especially when I am busy,  but
he knows mom will give in and give them both a treat :).
I will if I’m not busy at the moment,  otherwise they will
just have to wait.  They’re good boys, when they want to
be ;).  Ok next topic.  It looks like we will be able to get
our car fixed this month,  of course,  that’s if they don’t
all of the sudden say that it will cost more than they had
estimated.  Then again it will have to wait,  but we are
hoping that we can finally get the driver side door fixed
where we don’t have to open it from the inside hehehe.
That is such a pain.  Yep,  it will be nice to get that fixed.
So what else is there to yammer about?  It looks like it
could snow at any moment.  I do love to watch it snow :)
It gives me a calming sensation of course unless it’s a
blizzard and I’m having to walk to the mailbox in it LOL.
Then it is a blinding sort of stinging sensation hehehehe.
Gotta check the mail,  because who knows,  the mailbox
might be plowed under by a snowplow and I might not
be able to get to it if I wait hehehe.  The wonderful life
of Northern Maine :)  Yes there are a few struggles to
go through,  but then anywhere you live there are a few
things that you might not want to deal with.  I learned
through my dads guidance how to look for the blessings.
Anywhere you go,  you can find problems,  but if you
look with better eyes you can also find the moments
that make it all worth while.  I love the snow and I love
to watch the plants come alive when winter has finally
ended.  I also love to watch the fall colors become as
a painting from God filled with His dazzles.  With each
season comes more blessings to find.  Sometimes we
might miss them due to a dark cloud overhead that is
then your only perception.  Look passed the problems
and find the joy that is so often mistaken for a passing
day.  My daddy always told me that if things are not
going my way then go look in the mirror and find the
reason and change it.  Often it’s just the way that we
are viewing a moment and not the moment in itself.
If you see a dark cloud,  then look for the rainbow.
It might be right in front of your face.  Many have
health issues and there is always someone that has
worse problems than you,  but they are making it.
Find the joy within a blue sky or a snowflake falling.
Look beyond the clouds of grey and find the silver
lining.  Sometimes all you need to do is look in the
mirror and smile.  When you see yourself smiling
back in the mirror it might spawn a real true smile.
Learn to love yourself.  If you don’t love yourself,
how can you expect others to truly love you?  I will
often stand in front of the mirror and say to myself,
get over it,  yes you have problems,  but you’re not
alone.  I can often hear  my daddy’s words echoing
back at me saying Bill,  home can be anywhere you
might be at the moment,  so be happy where you
are.  Welcome Home!   Yep,  my dad gave me a lot
of great advice.  :) He might of thought I wasn’t
listening,  but I heard him Loud and Clear hehehe.
I miss my dad,  but I talk to him always and I can
often hear his voice talking to me.  Thank You
God for allowing me to be raised in a home blessed
with a Christian mom,  dad and sister that became
more than a family.  We became friends.  So now
I believe it’s time for me to be taking my little
venture back through I that I’ve written here to
see if I can find a good word or phrase that I can
use for the title for today’s brand new poem and
so I am off.  Headed back hunting through all of
my recollections.  It’s away to that place that I
always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think
I found a decent title as I strolled about halfway
back through all my rambling.  Now after checking
to see if it has been used or not,  I find that it has
not been used,  so now it shall be used.  Here goes!

Filled With His Dazzles

When life’s with burdens
worn to mere frazzles
it can be better when
filled with His dazzles.
The stars up above us
that twinkle and shine
can turn a moment
from water to wine.
Filled with His dazzles
as each moments seen
God can turn nightmares
into a great dream.
Losing what’s worried
in prayer driven whiles
can turn your frowning
into greater smiles.
Filled with His dazzles
are times we’ve forgotten
that are the moments then
seemed as just rotten.
Yet all the bad times
of yesterdays page
might make today now
shine on the stage.
For as compared to
passed days of frazzles
we can see better then
filled with His dazzles.

There ya go.  Ok,  you might not of understood the poem,
but I hope you at least enjoyed my rambling and had a clue
of what I was talking about LOL.  It was so nice and quiet
in here,  but Benny just broke the silence when he heard
a truck and he began barking at it as he ran for the front
door :).  Hey,  he’s a dog,  dogs bark.  If he could talk I’m
pretty sure he would be saying,  “I heard a truck. Did you
hear the truck?  I heard its motor.  Did you hear its motor?
Hey dad,  did you hear the truck?  Come and look and see
if it is coming here.  Dad,  did you hear the truck,  etc etc”?
LOL,  I’m not sure I want him to be able to talk hehehehe.
He might have things to say that right now he can see that
makes no sense to us through his barking so he only barks
when he thinks we really need to look LOL.  Milo barks on
mostly just 4 occasions.  1- when he needs to go out and
potty.  2- when he is ready to come back inside.  3- when
he wants a treat or food.  4- when he thinks Benny is onto
something and he joins in barking with him.  That about
covers it hehehe.  Benny barks at Milo to get him to play
with him :).  It’s a strange place here at the Pearce’s place,
but we love it.  Both of the boys are once again lying in
the floor right behind and beside me.  I’m surrounded :)
Milo drags his bed around the room most times to get
closer to either Judy or I and often to get closer to Benny.
I thank God for giving them to us and filling our home
with joy.  I guess it’s time for me to tell you what I tell
you almost every week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems and 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.  Now I believe
it’s time for me to begin my search for that not so great
at hiding off switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful and blessed weekend or whatever is left of
it and a truly blessings filled week. Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now,  where’s that freaken
off switch hiding this week?  Ok,  I think I see ya in
the floor right behind my Cheetos.  I might not of seen
ya if you hadn’t of been trying to sneak some out of
the bag :).  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

The Hermit

One stands in sands
of timeless days
the hermit is found
in so many ways.
Maybe not clearly
as ones would surmise
the hermit stands
in sands they devise.
They might be there
right in front of you
the lonely one
you thought you knew.
Their footprints made
might hide away
what the hermit
might or may.
A solitary man
or woman of time
might be the hermit
inside of their mind.
Even amongst others
they might stand alone
this person of time
that many thought known.

Faces Of Home

Doorways we’ve entered
and hung up our hat
turned into home
with a warm welcome mat.
Faces of home then
began a phase
stories well written
for upcoming days.
Seasons found changing
are what that are seen
in faces of home with
a nightmare and dream.
Often the days will
disclose certain views
in faces of home that
have worn out shoes.
Even the doorways
that ones will begin
the faces of home will
welcome them in.
It is inside us
where home does reside
with faces of home
where we walk inside.
Hanging our hat up
and coat that we wear
faces of home can
be anywhere.

Canopy Of Stars

The sky of the nighttime
with Venus and Mars
is filled so full of
a canopy of stars.
The worlds relations
to this greatest sight
is that of a painting
that’s found in the night.
A canopy of Stars
that twinkles thereunto
is found each clear night
as a wonderful view.
A painting that’s painted
by magical hands
that’s of God’s artwork
that surely withstands.
The times everlasting
that we’ve always known
is a canopy of stars
some see all alone.
Some look up at night
and find their own place
smiling from the Heavens
right down on their face.
For even loneliness
Venus and Mars
gives ones some comfort from
a canopy of stars.

A Winter’s Morning

With cold winds blowing
beginning each day
a winter’s morning is
every which way.
The sun arises
with a seasonal hue
as a winter’s morning
with a sky maybe blue.
Maybe some clouds will
form in the sky
of a winter’s morning
with snowflakes to fly.
White flakes of winter
then fall to the ground
of a winter’s morning
by dawn to be found.
Seasonal pages then
turn oh so fine
of a winter’s morning
with greater design.

Sapphire Days

A sky of blues
or maybe greys
might disclose
some bright sunrays.
The stage that’s seen
morning to night
could become
a wonderful sight.
With sapphire days
and bluish skies
we might be found
with how’s and why’s.
Some illusions
might be seen
in the clouds
a submarine.
Sapphire days
of blue details
within the clouds
a ship with sails.
All the changes
of which amaze
are found within
those sapphire days.

A Glistening Lake

A scene that I’m seeing
that my eyes partake
might be some ice
on a glistening lake.
Reflecting as echoes
more than just twice
a glistening lake
is patterned with ice.
When the sun’s shining
on its wondrous view
the lake then becomes
a glistening hue.
Acting like a mirror
of waters that shine
the lake is then found
as an ice driven shrine.
Holding within it
some waters awake
is a wintertime scene
of a glistening lake.

Spirit Of Trees

Some winds found blowing
might seem as the seas
within the forest
of a spirit of trees.
Waving their branches
as the wind blows
the spirit of trees
just grows and grows.
They show their directions
of every which way
the wind that’s blowing
of now and today.
The spirit of trees
is found day and night
relaying status
of each ways delight.
They seem to tell us
the words oh so clear
as spirit of trees
of our yesteryear.
Look deep within them
and search for some words
in the spirit of trees
for the flutter of birds.
You’ll then awaken
to see in the breeze
the true life that lives
in the spirit of trees.

A Touch Without Touch

Living in a world
a touch without touch
seeking to find things
maybe not much.
Touching with our eyes,
but our fingers don’t know
a touch without touch
of how things bestow.
Life in a bubble
without any feeling
brings ones a sky
with a low ceiling.
Looking for passion
without getting near
could become lonely
and not so sincere.
Painting a picture
of not very much
is what that happens
a touch without touch.

Beyond The Lakes

Way beyond
the view I see
is a sight
for you and me.
Beyond the lakes
of fields of dreams
we might find
so many things.
A magical place
of here and there
might come alive
most everywhere.
Beyond the lakes
of our own sights
the stars might shine
in distant nights.
The memories
of give and takes
might find good
beyond the lakes.
Worthwhile scenes
of which we find
beyond the lakes
might then unwind.
Way beyond
the things we see
might be better
things to be.

A Frozen Pond

Tomorrows story
found at dawn
might just be
a frozen pond.
A story told
in winter’s way
a frozen pond
might then display.
The seasons winds
will blow across
a frozen pond
of movement loss.
The depth of time
of waters wave
a frozen pond
does not display.
It only shows
an icy glance
where someone
can sing and dance.

Haiku
for Feb 28,  2015

When some storms blow in
let the lessons of the past
show peace in the clouds.

Life is a journey
that we all might stumble on
as many mistakes.

Legions of shadows
follow us from yesterdays
that we’ve forgotten.

The depth of oceans
holds our imaginations
and some might be real.

Looking deep in time
you might see yourself standing
amidst some quicksand.

Lowering standards
could cost your integrity
and lose who you are.

Truthful awakens
when lying has met its match
and you are exposed.

Living in a dream
could become as a nightmare
when you awaken.

If now is denied
it can become good or bad.
It depends on truth.

Seeking tomorrow
might display a few roadblocks,
but vanish when there.

Acting like a fool
might become what some perceive
as who that you are.

Dreaming of summer
shouldn’t lose track of today
and what to enjoy.

Paying someone back
for an ill deed that they’ve done
might come back on you.

Allowing a moment
to be all that you can be
could cause you to sink.

Journeys of many
becomes as footsteps followed
repeating mistakes.

Morning comes shining
even if there are some clouds
hiding the sunshine.

As time moves onwards
it leaves pieces of itself
within our shadows.

Another’s wisdom
might seem as stupidity
as you’re viewing it.

Having and holding
could one day need letting go
to have once again.

More than yesterday
are the things that we have learned
and grown much wiser.

A tiny anthill
has many ants inside it
working together.

Life is a pathway
that we choose our right and wrong
while seeing results.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

In Other Words

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

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

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

The Far Sky

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

Open Book

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

Snow Street

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

The Night Sky

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

Angels of Dawn

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

Of Mask And Shadow

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

Eyes In The Dark

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

Leftover Dreams

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

Rise

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

A Snowy Lullaby

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

Haiku
for Feb 20,  2015

Minds found unopened
lose the possibilities
and become stagnate.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Life is a porthole
through yesterdays tomorrow
found within today.

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

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

Fantasy living
brings chances for delusion
causing much sadness.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

More Than A Memory

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

Ok,  so there ya go.  It’s something that for some freakish
reason I found words to write about hehehe.  I guess you
could say,  I have had many times in my past that I now
look at as more than a memory.  They are things that live
within me as lessons I’ve learned and many of them were
freaken learned the hard way LOL.  I lived to tell about
them so that I can hopefully steer others away from them,
but there are many that are just like I was and still want
to learn the hard way,  of course they don’t think it will be
that way,  just I thought it wouldn’t be LOL.  SURPRISE!
Well Judy and the boys are in here now.  We finish our
breakfast a little bit ago and it was GOOOOOOOOOOD.
Judy’s a great cook.  Benny and Milo are now sleeping in
their beds.  I just heard the county snowplows go down the
road.  They stay busy during this time of year and they
do a great job keeping the roads drivable.  Of course one
would have to be crazy or really have a sense of urgency
to want to drive in this mess.  But the county guys do it
because it’s their job.  There have been times though that
even they could not see to do their job and waited for it
to clear up a bit.  Even if we have a power outage due to
ice and snow the county is out to fix it almost immediately.
Our landlord is still out there plowing the other driveways.
I’m glad that we haven’t got anywhere that we need to be
tomorrow :).  I might go out and play in the snow with
Benny and maybe even Milo if he wants to join us LOL.
I mean,  the high for tomorrow  is supposed to be only
9 F degrees :)   I’ve done worse hehehe.  We’ll have to
put their sweaters on them if they wanna come out and
play with me :).  Ok so I guess that’s about all I have
to ramble about and before I think of anything ELSE,
I need to tell you what I tell you every week and that
is I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers 10
more poems with one of them a Valentines poems to
my beloved wife :).  Also I wrote once again 22 haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find one or two of either or both that you like.  Now
I believe it’s time for me to be searching for that not
so great at hiding off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend or what’s left of it and a
most joyful God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now,  where is that confounded
off switch hiding this time?  Ok,  so you’re getting a
little better at least you are this time around.  I almost
didn’t see ya hiding behind my flashlight and I might
not of seen ya if you hadn’t of accidently hit the on
switch LOL.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Lost and Found

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

Without The Snow

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

Hands Held Tight

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

Things We’ve Seen

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

Musical Winds

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

A New Place In Time

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

Find A Smile

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

This Room Of Time

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

The Whitest Snow

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

My Lovely Valentine

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

Haiku
for Feb 14,  2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Back Up The Steps

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

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

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

When Eyes See Deep

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

Blinding Sights

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

The Question Of Time

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

Disheartened

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

Heaven’s Snowflakes

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

Too Many Dreams

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

Thinking of Christmas Again

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

Yesterdays Journey

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

A Sight Unseen

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

An Ice Covered Pond

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

Haiku
for Feb 8,  2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Without tomorrow
our motivation is gone
and we might stagnate.

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Sort Of Distracting

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

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

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

The Signs of Times

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

Painted White

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

Past And Present

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

Wishing Snow

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

Today’s Equation

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

As Now Begins

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

December’s Delight

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

Looks Of Love

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

As Rivers Flow

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

Blindly Searching

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

Haiku
for Jan 31,  2015

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

Yesterdays flourish
as memories come alive
with views found today.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How’s it going for ya?  It’s been a bouncy road these
last few weeks up this ways.  To start off with and get
it out of the way,  my tumor turned out to be cancer and
now I’m waiting for further info on what to do about it.
The doctor cut out a lot of it,  but not sure if more will
need to be cut out.  We’re waiting for test results.  So
that’s all that there is about that for now.  Now another
topic.  Last week our septic lines froze and I called our
landlord.  He came and started working on it at 7 PM
and it was in the single digits then.  He worked on into
the night until 3 AM.  It had gotten down to 0 F degrees.
He managed to get the septic line thawed and insulated
so it would not happen again,  but I was afraid Calvin
was gonna get frostbite and pneumonia.  He seemed to
be OK.  He came by early the next morning to see if
our toilets were still flushing.  I said yes and thanked
him.  I told him to go home now and get off of his ankle.
He slipped on the ice a week or so ago and broke it
and now has it in a brace.  He told me that he was sad
that I have cancer,  because we’re his favorite tenants.
He said we’re like family to him.  I told him that I don’t
think God is quite done with me yet,  so we’ll be here for
a while longer :).  Ok,  so what else is going on around
here?  My weather program says that we might get a
lot of snow this week starting Tuesday.  Right now it’s
21 F degrees at 2:15 PM.  That was the high for today.
The temperature should begin dropping soon to about
5 below zero by morning.  I’ve gotta go and check on
Benny to see if he’s done playing in the snow hehehe.
I’ll be back.  I’m back.  Benny was waiting for me on
the steps.  He followed me back in here.  Milo was
sleeping on my side of the bed with his head on my
pillow hehehe,  but when he saw Benny,  he followed
him in here and I gave them both a treat so that they
would leave me alone and let me finish writing LOL.
Yeppers,  they’re contented now.  Now back to my
rambling hehehe.  According to my weather program,
all of the snowing should commence around midnight
Monday night.  We shall see hehehe.  So far it’s been
a rather mild winter for us up here compared to our
previous winters.  BUT,  it’s far from over.  We still
have a few months of winter left and it could become
nasty LOL.  Benny and Milo are now lying in their
doggy beds right beside me.  Hopefully they’ll sleep
for a while :)  Benny just sat up as if he could hear
my thoughts LOL.  He’s now looking up at me with
his little toothy grin :).  Boy,  it’s sure windy outside.
That wind is blowing pretty strong.  I can almost feel
our house shake hehehe.  Ok,  so it is a little bit being
my PC monitor is rocking a tad LOL.  This is a single
wide mobile home after all hehehe.  We haven’t any
wind block and we are on a hill so we do get the brunt
of the wind.  The nearest trees to us are about a 1000
feet away and they aren’t in the direction that the wind
blows LOL.  We get most of our hardest winds from
the south which is right outside our front door and if
you’ve ever seen any of the pictures that I’ve taken
outside our front door,  you know that there is only
a field in front of us with trees way off in the distance.
Yeppers and the blowing snow tends to pile up right
outside in our driveway and against the house LOL.
There have been times that I had to go and open the
screen door every 30 or 40 minutes to keep the snow
from piling up against it and blocking us in hehehe.
It’s a life that you either get used to or move hehehe.
I actually don’t mind it as long as we have heating
oil to fuel our furnace hehehe.  The snow is pretty.
I love to watch it snow and will often go outside with
the boys and play in it.  Although with my health as
it has been recently, I haven’t done as much playing
as I’ve done in the past.  Benny is kind of noticing
it.  He looks at me like,  you used to stay out here
with me a lot longer :)  I always try to make up for
it when I can.  I’ll see how far I can walk out in the
field of snow before turning back LOL.  When I go
to check the mail,  Benny will often follow me.  Milo
will from time to time.  They are good boys.  They
know to not get in the road and to sit and wait for
me to get the mail and then head back to the house
with me.  I hope I have many more years to share
with Judy and the boys as well as all of you.  I do
enjoy sharing my thoughts with you.  It actually
helps me deal with the problems that come and go.
We all have problems.  Yours might seem worse
than others,  but if you really look around,  you
might find that there are a few that have problems
that just don’t wave a large flag saying I’m sick
or my life is a mess.  I’ve always tried to keep my
whining down to a bear minimum LOL.  I’d rather
make others smile.  That always makes me feel
better.  Knowing that I have made one of you to
feel a little better through my levity always brings
me joy.  Judy spends most of her time trying not
to look at me when I’m  being silly which is most
of the time hehehe.  She knows if she looks at me
that she’ll break up into tears laughing hehehe.
She often has tears in her eyes when she finally
turns around to face me LOL.  I often make up
silly lyrics to popular songs or little tunes you
hear on commercials.  I can’t help it,  it’s the
silly within me LOL.  I thank God for the silly
outlook that he has put inside me,  for if it were
not for that,  I might of never found the profound
poet inside my mind.  Look around you now and
find the laughable moments that you might have
overlooked.  Those times might help you to look
passed the sadness and find a smile.  God gives
us choices to either laugh,  cry,  smile or frown.
Often what we’re crying about is something that
we should just accept and move on and find the
laughter.  If a loved one dies,  then remember
the good times and you might find yourself with
a great big smile.  To be able to share the good
times with anybody is a blessing and memories
make those times live on as do those loved ones.
Keep the love alive inside your heart and share
it with others to make those memories never end.
Let the bad times fade from sight as the good
times are more highlighted.  Of course we all have
bad times,  but you can learn to let them be just
lessons learned and times that are no more and
move on.  Now I believe I have rambled quite
enough and it’s time for me to be searching for
a word or phrase within all of my rambling 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 believe I found a decent title not too for back.
and now after checking I see that it has not been
used YET,  so here it goes,  being used hehehe.

The Silly Within Me

With thinking there is
a story to say
that might be silly
which right now’s OK.
The silly within me
from things I remember
often become as
a smiles burning ember.
The sights and the sounds
that somehow begin
are maybe laughter
from the silly within.
My imagination
that often runs wild
the silly within me
is timeframes compiled.
Painted from the morsels
of smile giving days
the silly within me
is what that displays.
Even the bad times
from yesterdays glance
the silly within me
gives right now a chance.
With every minute
that my eyes can see
I try hard to find
the silly within me.
Yet many days are
much harder to smile,
but the silly within me
makes better a while.

So there ya go.  I hope you enjoyed my rambling and
maybe even the poem LOL.  I know,  the poem’s not
that great,  but it’s all that my tiny brain thought of :)
I never have a clue of what I am going to write.  The
title often takes off with a life of its own as I type the
words hehehe.  It’s 16 F degrees right now at 4 PM :)
Yeppers,  the temperature is dropping and that wind
is still a blowing.  LOL my monitor almost looks like
a really weak pendulum as it swishes back and forth
keeping time with the breeze hehehehehehehehehe.
That ain’t no breeze.  That there be a freaking gust :)
LOL and it be,  Rocking me gently,  rocking slowly,
don’t ya know that’s how it blows.  Yea that wind’s
sure blowing this home around LOL.  Oops,  I found
once again the silly within me hehehe.  Anyways,
it looks like Milo will be needing to go pee being
he’s over there drinking water and that boy has
a small bladder LOL.  Oh well,  I reckon it’s time
for me to be telling you what I tell you almost every
week and that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems with one of the being
sort of Christmassy.  Also I wrote once again 22
haiku for all of my haiku lovers,  but I accidently
wrote one extra,  so there are 23 this week LOL.
Well,  ain’t I surprised!  Milo didn’t have to go out
and go potty this time.  He went right back to his
bed and laid down.  So,  I guess I can 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,  where is that dad gum
off switch hiding this time?  Hey,  you’re getting
pretty good at hiding.  I almost didn’t see you
there hiding behind my escape key hehehehe.
I said getting good as sort of an insult to ya if
you didn’t quite get the concept hehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill.  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Time Marches On

Where many are walking
their footsteps will find
things they remember
from time after time.
As time marches on
and now meets tomorrow
we might find moments
that are filled with sorrow.
Yet we have choices
to change now today
how that we view things
in their wondrous way.
Time becomes windows
with us looking out
learning some lessons
and what they’re about.
We have a pathway
that soon will be gone
when we’re in Heaven
and time marches on.

A Snowflake Will Fall

With winters passion
comes snowflakes rejoice
speaking as doorways
with a white sort of voice.
Magical wonderful
scenes become found
as snowflakes will fall
and land on the ground.
One by one snowflakes
become as a painting
falling from the sky
that I’m not complaining.
For every snowflake
creates its own view
that which a snowflake
will most surely do.
Sometimes the snow mounds
are found oh so tall
within the moments
a snowflake will fall.
Particular pathways
are found day and night
as a snowflake will fall
to make such a sight.
Maybe as pictures
that only you see
a snowflake will fall
so delicately.

Within A Cloud

A sky of blue
holds fluffy shrouds
found within
some passing clouds.
Within a cloud
the magic starts
making pictures
time imparts.
Some as grey clouds
some as white
within a cloud
holds greatest sight.
Scenes transposing
views to see
within a cloud
a slight degree.
Stories written
day to day
within a cloud
is great display.
Painted loosely
in the sky
as the clouds all
float on by.
Within a cloud
the time begins
brought together
with the winds.

Another Moment

When time on Earth
is found at end
another moment
is around the bend.
All the problems
health displays
another moment
shines its ways.
Heavens doorway
gives us all
another moment
to stand tall.
It makes passed days
understood
another moment
bad and good.
Let God’s glory
shine His Son
another moment
said and done.
Let your lifestyle
show true love
another moment
from above.
Don’t let passed days
just be found
another moment
comes around.
Chances choices
can become
another moment
said and done.

I Can Recall

My life has been
so many things
some as nightmares
some as dreams.
I can recall
the yesterdays
that my life seemed
only greys.
My life’s moved on
from then and there
I can recall
from disrepair.
The choices I chose
or did not choose
showed me how
to win and lose.
The many times
of life’s Earthquakes
I can recall
so many mistakes.

The Rooftop White

With snow a falling
winter’s bringing
winters winds
just blowing singing.
Then as snowflakes
gather around
some land high
and some the ground.
On our rooftop
snow is landing
giving more
a place for standing.
It then becomes
a distant sight
faraway
a rooftop white.
As ones pass by
they can see
the rooftop white
a slight degree.
Snowflakes landing
gathering true
to make the rooftop
white to view.

Timid Waters

Beneath the ice
holds waters deep
breathing moments
that might seep.
Timid waters
rushing through
beneath the ice
of winters hue.
Flowing going
but not seen
timid waters
aquamarine.
Displayed as ice
on top to see
timid waters
are so free.
Currents driving
winters ways
timid waters
then  emblaze.
As the ice then
loses hold
timid waters
then unfold.
Bringing forth
a sight to see
timid waters
running free.

The Lighter Side

When problems come
through days ahead
you might find
you only dread,
but the lighter
side of days
can be with a
different gaze
Looking for the
better times
and not just
the days land mines.
The lighter side
of problems found
might hold laughter
sight and sound.
Look beyond the
troubled views
and then find
some better news.
Silly thinking
might preside
to some laughter
the lighter side.
Of course keep mind
of what that’s true,
but keep the lighter
side in you.

Looking Back Christmas

With decades ago
comes times I remember
looking back Christmas
found in December.
When I was younger
and time only showed
Christmases found with
a much lesser load.
Looking back Christmas
brings me to find
times that my journeys
were peace of mind.
With all the memories
comes greater days
looking back Christmas
through all the greys.
My life has found joyful
now that is seen
looking back Christmas
now is a dream.
Winters own portholes
become such a sight
looking back Christmas
that now I delight.
I know now that Christmas
is what lives inside
looking back now days
with Jesus applied.
Peaceful comes bountiful
as I impart
looking back Christmas
with a God beating heart.

Little Lantern

When the lights have
ceased to shine
little lantern
you’re so fine.
For when darkness
comes within
little lantern
you begin.
We are thankful
in the night
little lantern
with your light.
For when troubles
come our way
little lantern
you display.
Power lines will
often break
leaving us
found wide awake.
So little lantern
we are proud
with you here
your light endowed.

Haiku
for Jan 24,  2015

As we walk forwards
we leave footprints in our wake
that others will see.

Sometimes our journeys
are connected to others
that we do not see.

Patience is hard
when the obvious is seen
leaving you waiting.

Pointless is wishing
when the wishes are empty
without any good.

Losing direction
can often find you lessons
that you have needed.

Because becomes said
often when we have no clue
of the best answer.

Looking for peaceful
needs you to search from within
as a breath that’s breathed.

When death comes knocking
greet it with a smile of peace
for Heaven awaits.

Allowing anger
to control all that you do
will cause much regret.

Now’s but a shadow
of yesterdays that are gone,
that we’ve maybe changed.

When life gives lemons
let it help you remember
all of the good times.

A dog found barking
is often trying to talk
or then maybe not.

Mind set illusions
will often find a desert
with cactus thinking.

Winter winds subside
when its season has moved on
leaving us springtime.

A journey might  fail
when each footstep is a ghost
hidden in our fears.

Change is direction
needed for us to let go
of our passed mistakes.

Looking for mistakes
in the people that you see
might show you your own.

The wealth of others
has no bearing on your life
but that of wanting.

Belief in Jesus
will not get you in Heaven
for you must love Him.

With our coming death
a new life will then blossom
as angels are born.

Sometimes our mistakes
will turn into our blessings
as time moves onwards.

The truth that is said
will often be hard to hear
due to our choices.

Love will come alive
as your heart allows Jesus
to stoke the fire.
