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.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s wet and cold today, but not freezing :) Nope, it’s
only 36 F degrees right now at 2:30 PM. The boys and
me are just hanging together as we do every Sunday :)
I have been still waiting for my test results and it’s just
about to drive me crazy. I had a doctors appointment
last Thursday, but my doctor was out sick and another
doctor saw me and removed my stiches, but left in the
packing just in case they find that the tumor is cancer.
She read my doctors notes and told me the test results
haven’t come in yet. It seems everything in Maine is
SLOW. I would just like to know one way or the other
if it is or isn’t cancer. At least then I would know sort
of what to plan ahead for. Anyways, that’s the way it
is up here in Maine. The boys have been good. They’re
both in here now. I just gave them some duck jerky.
That should pacify them for a while LOL. Today and
tomorrow is supposed to be above freezing, but then
Monday night drop back down to the teens. It’s weird
weather for up here. We’re loving our new bed. We
have more room and my feet don’t hang off the end of
it LOL. There’s more room for Benny and Milo also :)
They do from time to time lay with us, but not when
we’re getting ready to sleep. Only when we’re watching
TV. Of course there are a few exceptions hehehe such
as we’re just gonna take a nap. Then we don’t mind
them laying with us. Benny just now started barking at
the neighbors and Milo ran to see what it was about
thinking mom might be home. Nope, it’s way too early
for her to be coming home LOL. She won’t be home
until late tonight when Trudy gets home from Walmart.
So, now Benny is leaning up against my leg and Milo
is lying in his bed. These boys are something else :)
We’ve still got tons of snow outside. Of course after
today and tomorrow with the above freezing temps
I’m sure the snow will turn to a hard layer of ice and
I don’t care much for that. We might get some rain
tonight and tomorrow, but Monday night it might be
snowing. Of course it’s just a forecast/prediction and
in many views a mere guess of the weather hehehe.
It’s rare that the forecast is spot on :) It seems that
Benny got tired of leaning up against my leg and has
decided to lie in his doggy bed. Actually neither of the
beds has a name on it. They switch off often and lie
in the one that isn’t occupied or the one that’s closest
to them, etc, etc, etc LOL. I don’t know what we’d
do without these boys. It seems as though they have
always been in our lives even though we’ve only had
them since 2012 hehehe. We got Benny in March of
that year and Milo in October, but they act just like
brothers that have always been. They are lying head
to head right now as they often do hehehe. They often
lie side by side. So, what else is going on around this
place? Not a whole lot! We’re hoping to be able to
afford to get our driver side car door fixed so it can
be opened from the outside. It’s gonna cost us $606
dollars. That’s our plans for when we get paid next
month. Hopefully our heating oil won’t run out LOL.
We’re sitting at a half a tank right now. If we didn’t
have problems, I would think something was wrong :)
I know God will make sure we have what we need as
He has always, but it doesn’t stop me from worrying.
LOL I guess I’m a worry wart. That’s what mom and
dad used to call me when I was a kid. I almost said
little boy, but I don’t think I was ever really little LOL.
Looking back at a few old pictures I was bigger than
my sister when I was 1 year old and she was 5 hehehe.
I always had big arms. I wish I had more pictures
of us as a family, but nobody in my family was much
into taking pictures. My dad took a few, but that’s
about all. It would of been nice if we had owned a
video cam, but then again thinking about that LOL,
maybe not hehehe. I wouldn’t want videos of me like
what I see of other families floating around hehehe
and yes I did find myself in some weird predicaments
as many children do :) I guess I’m glad we didn’t
own a video cam hehehe. The temperature has gone
up a few more degrees now. It’s now 38 F degrees
at 4 PM. It’s supposed to be 45 degrees by morning
and then start dropping back down gradually and by
Monday evening be below freezing again. Weird,
yes I would say so LOL. Then for the rest of the
week it’s supposed to be in the teens and single
digits hehehe. It might get up to the lower 20’s but
that’s all I see in my weather program :) Of course
some snow will be falling here and there hehehe as
always. It seems even the days that snow isn’t in the
forecast, it finds a way to fall. My stomach is talking
to me saying “FEED ME” :) I guess it’s almost time
for me to be fixing me and the boys something to eat.
It seems that the duck jerky that I gave them a while
ago is still sufficing them. They aren’t bugging me
for something to eat LOL. They’re sound asleep :)
Milo is snoring quietly thank God hehehe. It gets
hard to think when his snore turns into a loud roar :)
I thank God for all of the blessings He has put in my
life. I am grateful for all of the chances that He has
given me to let me turn my life around. I pray that
I have a few more years to share with you, but if
not, then be it His Will be done. I’m sure that if my
time is up, then I’ve done all that He wanted me to
do. I’ve already lived longer than the doctors had
predicted with all of my health issues. The hands of
the clock of time tick on with the moments that we
are to live and then find peace in Heaven. I hope
that you are doing the best you can with your life,
for you might be gone tomorrow because tomorrow
isn’t guaranteed. Our actions here on Earth can be
as echoes in lives still living, so make them your
very best echoes. Now, I reckon it’s time for me to
be taking my little journey back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a decent 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 now after
checking I see that it has not been used yet, but
it’s being used today hehehe.

The Chances

The days and weeks
through timeless phase
provide the chances
many ways.
Things we’ve done wrong
passed and gone
the chances come
from dusk to dawn.
We might be troubled
from our ages.
but the chances
God arranges.
Pages turning
flipping through
the chances come
to me and you.
We might be found
with ending phase
with no chances
then to gaze.
So take heed now
look and see
the chances now
for good to be.

Well, there ya go. I hope you understood the poem and
maybe even liked it :) Also, I hope my rambling didn’t
bore you to sleep hehehe. It’s 5:30 PM and 39 degrees.
Not too bad. There’s not much else to tell you so I guess
it’s time to tell you what I tell you almost every week and
that is, I wrote some more poems and haiku yesterday :)
Yep, 10 more poems with 1 of them being a Christmas
poem. Also I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like. Now I believe I need to begin my search for that
hardly 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 gum off switch
trying to hide this week hehehe? I see ya you silly little
whippersnapper. Trying to make like the second hand
of my watch don’t work too well being you are a little out
of sync with the original second hand LOL. Ya look sort
of like a lazy blur hehehehehehehe. Anyways, Gotcha,
see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Winters Ice

The chill of winter
comes so cold
winters ice
that times unfold.
Many rivers
lakes and ponds
winters ice
is dusk to dawn.
Many snowflakes
might be falling
giving winter
its own calling,
but with snowflakes
falling down
winters ice
is all around.
Some icicles
hanging true
winters ice
with wondrous view.
Mesmerizing
sights are seen
winters ice
a snowbound dream.
Then and now with
winters ice
pages display
so precise.
Moments gathered
to and fro
some with ice
and some with snow.

An Endless Sky

With clouds found floating
the sky gives way
to a seemingly
endless day.
Endless rhythms
perpetuating
an endless sky
infatuating.
The blue sky rises
into view
when the clouds are
found as few.
Scenes transposing
on the stage
an endless sky
will turn a page.
Imaginations
come alive
to help an endless
sky survive.
It’s with clouds
of fluffy form
that an endless
sky is born.
Many pictures
become true
an endless sky
of thereunto.
Painted with some
oceans depth
an endless sky
will take a breath.
Breathing in
the days ahead
an endless sky
is story’s read.
Word by word
the book of time
shows an endless
sky divine.

When Christmas Passes

As December moves on
from now to the past
many find Christmas
as shadows that casts.
Not with the joyful,
but with the pain
coming from wrongful
ways to attain.
When Christmas passes
it should live and breathe
that of our Savior
which we should believe.
Yet many people
think only of money
and how to buy things
maybe just funny.
Christmas should live on
as wonderful dreams
displayed by blessings of
Heavenly streams.
Poured down as waters
it should then unfold
when Christmas passes
with joyful behold.
Scattered with memories
to all the masses
there should be heartfelt
when Christmas passes.

Before The Dawn

While night shows stars
that twinkle so bright
the soon to come
is mornings light.
Before the dawn
the night displays
all it can
for one last gaze.
Nighttime’s chance
to show its stuff
minutes count
till not enough.
Before the dawn
it breathes a sigh
starlit wonders
in the sky.
Even moonlight
falls from view
when dawn breaks
to show anew.
The stars at night
will twinkle on
as best they can
before the dawn.

Never Forgotten

When life has ended
new begins
never forgotten
like the winds.
The memories
of when and where
become alive
in then and there.
Never forgotten
time moves on
dusk to dusk
and dawn to dawn.
So many ventures
live and breathe
within the time
our memories.
Never forgotten
as death is found
our memories
are still around.

Circle Of Life

Looking past outwards
and looking inside
the circle of life
becomes as outside.
Seeing the truthful
sometimes hard to see
while often hidden
from you and from me.
The circle of life
is our found perception
as many find
a daily deception.
Sometimes revolving
much closer yet far
not realizing
who that they are.
The circle of life
needs many to find
how we’re connected
to all of mankind.

Remembering

While I’m sitting
here to day
I’m remembering
far away.
Peering into
passed days glance
I’m remembering
second chance.
All the misery
I went through
I’m remembering
better view.
I can see now
my own choices
guiding me to
less rejoices.
Now while sitting
here I see
how I found
my misery.
Yet those days are
gone away
while remembering
gone astray.
Today gives chances
learned from then
while remembering
where I’ve been.
Lessons learned
from passed mistakes
helps me find
a new day breaks.
Remembering
the lessons learned
becomes more clear
how they were earned.

The Winds Of Time

The echoes of lifestyles
become a design
found as the pathways
of the winds of time.
Scenes become journeys
with our memories
as the winds of time
of oceans and seas.
Stages performed on
of lifetimes perception
finds winds of time
with a bit of deception.
So many envision
their lives in a story
written by authors
a little bit gory.
Yet it just might be
their own view of time
and not seeing clearly
what good there’s to find.
The winds of time
are blowing around
giving so many
the best to be found.
Yet it needs us to
look now and see
the winds of time
the best they can be.
Find all the good times
and lock on a smile
as the winds of time
blow on for a while.

Soon Is Gone

Life is counted
by a few
soon is gone
with just one two.
Counted essence
many find
soon is gone
with time to time.
Less perception
becomes more.
Soon is gone
comes through the door.
When now’s gone
the passed is viewed
soon is gone
what’s misconstrued.
Often when we
lose someone
soon is gone
is time’s begun
Don’t let life to
pass you by.
Soon is gone
the day we die.
Show your passion
love so true
soon is gone
might become you.
Let your heartbeat
find some peace
soon is gone
with great release.
Find the blessings
time to time
soon is gone
will still remind.
God’s Son Jesus
will not be
soon is gone
but found so free.
Moments Breathing
we live on
even when our
soon is gone.

Walking On Ice

With winter comes chills
and cold winds a blowing
even a few days
found often snowing.
Driveways are frozen
to pay up a price
slipping and sliding
while walking on ice.
With winters mornings
the sunshine will glare
reflecting on white snow
found everywhere.
The driveway turns slicker
as each day is found
walking on ice then
finds me on the ground.
Slipping and sliding
on ice not so smooth
becomes as a journey
to win or to lose.
For when I’m falling
it is not so nice,
so now I wear cleats when
walking on ice.

Haiku
for Jan 17, 2015

Life finds mysteries
hidden in some strange places
that many never look.

Without a heartbeat
our lives cannot become true
and we can’t exist.

The ghostly image
of our lives after we’ve died
can live in others.

When time finds its end
the beginning starts again
with another page.

Watching a child grow
you might see bits of yourself
within their journey.

Wondering lifestyles
finds many asking questions
about others lives.

Limits to true love
are often just misconceived
due to importance.

Two worlds will collide
as true love meets destiny
and it’s accepted.

Beyond our eyesight
holds the dreams that could come true
if we’d just believe.

Heaven awaits us
through the love of God’s Own Son.
Jesus is the key.

Patience for now
can show better tomorrows
as things go their way.

Winter brings snowflakes
along with some icicles
to be decorations.

Love finds some problems
when it’s not what we’re needing,
but just what we want.

The essence of time
becomes an inconvenience
when in a hurry.

Searching through some clouds
you might find some memories
painted in the sky.

Storms of yesterday
often live inside our mind
becoming baggage.

Nobody’s sometime
is the same as another,
for views are within.

Mornings arrival
brings new pages to write on
with our new choices.

Meaningless banter
can become a bad disease
that angers others.

Painting with actions
creates a good or bad sight
with you as the brush.

Allowing others
to tempt you to destruction
could cause your demise.

Emotional doors
will often open and close
at the wrong times.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another week in 2015 and Judy and I have been
trying to get used to the date 2015 LOL.  Me particularly :).
I forget how many times that I’ve gone and dated my poetry
2014 and when editing had to fix it LOL.  I still might have a
few slip by me,  but maybe not :).  I went to the doctor again
last Tuesday and he started to try and remove the cyst on
my shoulder and he found something more.  It was not a cyst.
It was a tumor and when I went back to see him Saturday he
told me that he thinks it’s cancer.  He sent for test results
and said he would call me and let me know one way or the
other.  Keep me in your prayers.  I want a few more years
with my family.  Plus I have a lot more to ramble about :).
Surely God’s not done with me :).  I’ve got a whole lot more
orneriness to spread hehehehe.  Anyways,  I having faith
that if it is cancer that it’s benign.  He removed what all
he could at the moment which was 2 inches long and about
an 8th of an inch thick.  So,  now it’s onto a hopeful brighter
topic hehehe.  The boys are doing well.  Judy is over at her
sisters house as she does every Sunday.  Oh yea,  we got
us a new bed.  Ok,  so it’s a used bed.  It’s better than the
one that we had LOL.  Our box springs were busted and
the mattress had springs come up out of it.  Plus our old
bed was only a full size and the new one is a queen size.
A lot more room and it’s in real good shape.  It cost us
80 dollars and well worth it.  It’s supposed to snow in
the morning.  About 1-3 inches expected.  That’s not too
bad.  We’ve still got tons of snow outside.  It snowed a
little bit last week.  It’ll still be white outside for a few
more months LOL.  I don’t see it melting any time soon.
Benny is loving it as always hehehe.  He’d be happy if
there was snow all year round LOL.  I do love snow,  but
hate ICE which the snow tends to turn into when it melts
a bit in the sun and then refreezes.  That’s what ends up
causing a lot of slips and slides.  Our landlord slipped
on his steps last week and broke his ankle.  Now he’s
got a little sign on his front door that says,  “Careful,
the steps are slick” hehehe.  Yep,  I’ve had more than
my share of slips and slides on our front steps hehehe.
One morning Milo slid down the steps in the snow and
ice.  Thank God he’s lower to the ground than I am or
he might of got hurt.  He just shook it off and did his
business and then came back inside :).  Milo is in here
with me right now lying down in the floor beside me.
Benny comes and goes as he keeps a look out for
mom/Judy to come home LOL.  Last time I looked,
he was on the recliner watching the front door :).  Our
little watch dog hehehe.  Every time I get up to go to
the bathroom or go get a soda water,  Milo will be
right behind me like a little shadow.  He’ll wait till I
get out of the bathroom or kitchen and then follow
me back in here and lay down in the floor beside me.
Gotta love them boys :).  I enjoy every minute with
them.  Judy and I are so blessed to have found one
another.  I enjoy just being in the room with her.
God found 2 people that lived thousands of miles
apart and put them together as one and then found
two little boys/dogs that fit in our lives like a glove
and blessed us with their love.  It has been a life
that I never could of imagined.  I pray that I have
many more days together with them,  but only God
knows.  I’m sure that many of you did the same as
me for a few years,  lived seeking perfection and
not what God had for us perfectly.  Sometimes our
greed can cause us to seek beyond what we truly
need and end up with misery.  Then there are
times that you might have gotten depressed and
let the blessings fade from view.  That is my life.
I thank God that He allowed me another chance
to find true love and happiness.  Yes of course,  I
have my share of bad days,  but it’s the bad days
that make the good days shine.  I am thankful for
my gift of writing,  because it helps me to deal with
my problems.  Also I am able to share with you my
life through the turnstiles of ups and downs.  I do
hope that you are finding the joy of life.  Life is
short and we need to learn to be happy even when
we’re thrown a rotten egg :).  I guess it’s time for
me to be venturing back through all that I have
written here to see if I can find me a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title 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 found a decent title that I’m sure
I haven’t used yet being it’s one long phrase,  but
I’ll check anyways hehehe.  Nope it hasn’t been
used,  so here goes,  being used LOL.

My Share Of Bad Days

When troubles come counting
and bad days surmise
time comes with chances
to find some blue skies.
Often my journeys
are with some potholes
found amidst storm clouds
just taking there tolls.
My share of bad days
might seem light to you,
but it’s the owner that
sees their own view.
You might be found with
some torment and pain
days each amounting
that seem as insane.
So let the good times
become as a tool
when there are times that
are oh so cruel.
It’s with the good times
that help all the greys
when I am found with
my share of bad days.

Ok,  it might not be one of my better poems,  but as I’ve
said before,  it’s what that came out.  I hope it makes at
least a little sense to you :).  If not,  sorry,  maybe next
time hehehe.  Milo is still lying in the floor beside me
and he’s snoring LOUDLY.  It makes it a little hard to
think hehehe.  None the less I shall finish this.  I didn’t
write any poetry yesterday being I was a little depressed
due to my doctors report that I got yesterday.  Oh well,
we all get down time to time and I’m no exception LOL.
Life goes on :).  It’s 19 F degrees right now at  6 PM.
It’s supposed to be 13 F and snowing by morning,  Yea.
So far the weather has been fairly mild or should I say
mild for up here LOL,  but I’m sure Mr Winter will
turn down the air and all.  He always does LOL.  Yep,
it is most definitely wintertime.  Judy and I are going
to try and save up to get our car door fixed next month.
If nothing else happens we should be able to do it :).
The driver side door handle on the outside is messed
up and does not work.  We’ve gotta climb in on the
passenger side and reach across and open the driver
side door LOL.  That does get a tad OLD ya know.
It’s gonna cost us $606 dollars to get it fixed.  They
will have to replace the inside of the door.  Anyways,
hopefully it will be fixed next month.  We’re having
it fixed at Yorktown Auto.  I know Judy will be happy
when it’s fixed.  She drives the car more than I do :).
Well,  that’s about all that’s going on around here :).
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.  Yep,  I wrote 10 more poems with
1 of them being sort of Christmassy.  Also once agin
I wrote 22 haiku.  Yep,  I wrote all of the poems and
haiku today hehehehehe.  I hope you find one or two
of either or both that you like.  Now,  it’s time for
me to be searching for that not so 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’s that blasted off switch hiding
this time?  Hehehe I see ya you little varmint. Did
you think I wouldn’t see you riding side saddle on
Milo as he goes to get a drink of water hehehehe?
Saw ya!  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Mornings Calm

As night is ended
day’s begun
with the sight of
mornings sun.
The nights departure
leaves a trace
found within
the mornings face.
Scenes of grandeur
found by dawn
become essence
mornings calm.
With a portion
night has poured
mornings calm
is then assured.
Yet some mornings
might fall prey
to the troubles
yesterday.
Try and see what
can be done
mornings calm
with rising sun.
Find the goodness
to perceive
maybe just
a chance to breathe.
Look around you
dusk to dawn
and then find a
mornings calm.

When Our Time’s Done

If death came knocking
at your front door
would you be ready
for then evermore?
Would you be waiting
at Heavens front gate
with many questions
and that many debate?
When our time is done
the chances to change
are then as faces
we can’t rearrange.
Do you know Jesus
and have you made peace
with all your anger
that you need release?
One day we’ll arrive
with the sight of God’s Son
as time goes ticking
when our time is done.

The Winters Sun

With snow of white
the winters sun
shines so bright
on everyone.
The days are cold
with flakes of white
as stories told
from scenes delight.
As winters sun
displays its view
a new days done
for me and you.
The snow of white
paints many scenes
day and night
and betweens.
The winters sun
brings forth a gaze
northward done
some snowy days.

Lost Bird

A tiny bird
in snow of white
seems so lost
within my sight.
A small lost bird
of winters way
wanders around
from day to day.
A tiny bird
on mounds of snow
hops around
in oh so cold.
Yet it flutters
wings deployed
on what all
it has enjoyed.
A small lost bird
not lost at all
loves to watch
the snowflakes fall.

Joyful Memories

Those days remembered
of joyful hue
live as the echoes
of times oh so new.
Christmastimes blessings
wonderful sights
now are the magical
days I delight.
Joyful memories
painted with time
live as the wonderful
days on my mind.
Joyful the journeys
magical scenes
painted with colors of
reds,  blues and greens.
Wonderful moments
that my mind still sees
become as remembered
joyful memories.

Floating Dreams

Waves come rolling
making sounds
such as lapping
on the ground.
Upon a beach
there’s ocean waves
rolling in
those sunny days.
Floating dreams
so faraway
oceans deep
from day to day.
Waves bring portions
of the scenes
as so many
floating dreams.
Passions doorway
opens wide
floating dreams then
come inside.
A paradise
ones hand in hand
floating dreams
found on the sand.
Waves come crashing
on the shore
floating dreams
forevermore.
Remembered times
of her and I
floating dreams
shall never die.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce :)

Just Because

With our pathways
come our choices
with some answers
saddened voices.
Many people
blame their flaws
on the answers
just because.
Not allowing
truth to be
what they chose
from history.
Just because
becomes ones view
when they answer
me and you.
Yet that answer
does not show
why you really
did them so.
So if someone
ask you why
answer truly
do not lie.
Just because
is not so great
because it’s often
a little late.

The Blinding Snow

The sun shines brightly
on the snow.
It’s hard to see
where all we go.
The blinding snow
of winters way
becomes a hindrance
day to day.
It acts like mirrors
said and done
reflecting bright
the daily sun.
The blinding snow
is also cold
winter displays
times unfold.
The suns reflection
that I see
becomes a snowbound
history.
The times I’ve sought
where I’m to go
I only saw
the blinding snow.

The Distant Trees

Looking out
I see the trees
snowy fields
of whitish seas.
My distant sight
sees high and low
trees all covered
with the snow.
Sparkling essence
in the sun
the distant trees
dial 911.
The weight of snow
upon their view
makes it hard
to stand there true.
Yet I find some
joy in these
found within
the distant trees.
Sparkling brightly
in the sun
until the moments
day is done.

A Beautiful World

So many pages
of our history
get tainted by words
that ones don’t agree.
A beautiful world
lies here now today
that needs us to find
a more peaceful array.
We’ve allowed our anger
and hatred of others
to become killers
of sisters and brothers.
Let’s pull together now
and try and agree,
this wonderful world
has so much to see.
Look passed your differences,
find common ground
for a beautiful world
is there to be found.

Haiku
for Jan 11,  2015

With a few footsteps
yesterday becomes today
leaving memories.

While winter winds blow
they might give snowflakes a ride
if the weather’s right.

Soon now will pass on
leaving only some shadows
that we’ll remember.

Portions of winter
might bring forth some ice and snow
with some freezing rain.

Looking for perfect
might leave you feeling empty
when you see the flaws.

The echoes of time
that we recall from our past
might show some regret.

Today is a chance
that has many beginnings,
so do not give up.

Less might be better
if it’s what you only want
and don’t really need.

A glimmer of hope
comes from the tiniest things
that we overlook.

With just a moment
you can change all that you are,
so why not begin.

Death is not the end,
but the beginning of life
of everlasting.

Windows of lifestyles
are often pretty dirty,
but hidden from view.

Ones anxiety
can cause them many problems,
so take time for prayer.

A glimpse of today
from yesterdays perception
could find you despair.

Our lives are as links
connected invisibly,
each one together.

Heaven awaits us
while many still will choose Hell
as their direction.

Living in the now
brings chances for much better,
for yesterday’s gone.

Resting on laurels
might one day just fade away.
Try to do better.

Each snowflake that falls
has a personality
that is of its own.

Nighttime images
might create many shadows
that we misconceive.

Leftover heartbeats
from a devastating ride
might have some baggage.

Hearing ones wording
does not mean you understand.
It might be deeper.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How was your New Years?  I hope you had a happy and
safe one.  The year 2015 is now upon us and I find myself
still signing stuff 2014 and having to go back and change
it as I did last year when it turned 2014 LOL.  In a month
or so I’ll finally get used to typing 2015,  but until then my
mind will still cause me to revert to 2014 and have to go
back and correct it hehehe.  So did you make any type of
New Years resolutions?  The only one I ever make is to
try and do better this year.  It’s about the only one that
I’m fairly sure that I can keep LOL.  It snowed quite a bit
last night.  This morning Benny and Milo needed to go out
and potty and I could almost read the words in Milo’s face
when he looked outside at the steps and all LOL.  Sort of
like,  “No not again”.  Benny was out the door and ready
to play.  As soon as Milo got down the steps and did his
duty,  he was back clambering up the steps to get back
inside,  but Benny wanted to play in it,  because he loves
snow.  I had to keep calling his name and he finally gave
in and came back inside.  I knew the snowplow would soon
be here and I didn’t want Benny getting plowed under :).
Our neighbor Mark once again came over and shoveled
our steps and around our car.  I never asked him to do it.
I have managed since 2007,  but I guess he can see that
my health isn’t getting any better and he’s just trying to
be nice.  He came over yesterday evening and asked me
to take him to town so he could buy some more kerosene
for his heater,  so I donned my clothes and we headed
out.  He wanted to stop at the grocery store so to buy
them a few groceries while we were in town so we did.
Their car is leaking radiator fluid and isn’t running too
well either.  He wanted to stop at Burger King and get
him and his better half a burger and said for me to get
Judy and I something,  so I got us 2 Big Kings and some
onion rings.  Anyways,  Mark is a nice guy.  I hope him
and Charlene hang around longer than all of our previous
neighbors.  I do still miss Brian my fishing buddy.  Him
and his wife and boy were our neighbors for a year or
so.  I also miss our other neighbor Carol and her boys.
We’ve had some nice neighbors.  Paul and his wife lived
behind us and were here before we moved up and they
moved away a couple of years ago.  We’re sort of out
in the boonies,  but I like it for the scenery and ability
to be able to play my conga drums without bothering
anybody hehehe.  I asked all my neighbors if I was
too loud and they said they couldn’t hear the conga
drums,  but a few of my neighbors have come over
to watch and listen to me play a few times :).  OK, So
what else is there to talk about?  It’s sort of quiet
around here today.  Judy didn’t have to go over her
sisters house today being her sister stayed home
due to the nasty weather conditions.  So,  we’re all
here today.  I think Benny and Milo are a little bit
confused though.  Hehehe Friday when we went into
town to pay the light bill,  we took Benny and Milo
with us.  The funny thing was that when I opened
the front door and said come on boys.  Benny ran
down the steps and headed for the field and turned
around to wait for me LOL.  I said,  Benny we’re
not going for a walk in the field today, we’re going
for a ride and I opened up the back door.  He came
a running and hopped right in.  Milo came outside
with Judy and hopped in and then Judy and I got in
and we were off to town.  I will have to take the
boys out for a walk soon.  I haven’t lately due to
being under the weather,  but aside from my many
allergies, arthritis, etc,  I’m feeling a little better.
Life goes on hehehe.  I just poked my head out
and it’s 21 F degrees and sleeting now.  Yep,  it’s
a nasty day.  I don’t mind the snow,  but the sleet
and freezing rain I can do without.  Yep,  it’s days
like today that I’m glad to be retired with nowhere
that we have to be.  I’m glad that I don’t have to
worry about Judy being on the road this evening.
I can tell by the lack of traffic on the road that
the road must be bad.  It’s not like we get tons of
traffic being we live on the county road,  but we
do have a few logging trucks and cars that drive.
Although,  I haven’t heard a snowplow in a good
while,  which could also mean,  that the roads are
slick.  Maybe they’ll come and sand the roads in
a bit if they haven’t already done so on their last
pass.  None the less,  I checked our mail yesterday
and it don’t run today,  so there’s no need for me
to have to walk out there thank God LOL.  It looks
like 2015 is slowly making footprints in the days.
We shall see where the footsteps lead to.  Judy
I and the boys will just keep on keeping on as the
pages turn in time.  God has continued to watch
over us as He has from the beginning.  We are
finding blessings with each corner that we turn.
Our little homestead has many miracles found
within it.  I feel blessed to be able to share my life
with Judy and the boys.  Yet,  there are times that
I let self pity to live and breathe just as many of
you might also.  It’s those times that I begin my
prayers even more so and let God show me the
many blessings that I have.  Of course I have
health issues and financial stress,  but I am able
to see the beauty of winters snow and autumns
fall colors along with all that is in between such
as flowers that bloom.  I’m able to watch all the
clouds form paintings in the sky.  Most of all I am
able to share this with Judy and our boys.  Thank
You God for all that You have done and will do.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be taking a lil
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 brand new poem.  So it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  It
looks like I found a title about half way down :).
It might turn out silly,  but I haven’t a clue at
this point hehehe.  So here goes.

I Don’t Mind The Snow

With wintertime’s perception
and the plows that come and go
I find I hate the sleet and ice,
but I don’t mind the snow.
The season has much beauty
with its white snow on the ground
and trees that glitter brightly
when sunlight shines all around.
No,  I don’t mind the snow
for it has that wondrous view,
that with the snowflakes falling
makes the days so fresh and new.
Then as winters highways
are filled with wondrous scenes
the snow becomes a painting
that is filled with many dreams.
The winters days come shining
as December comes and goes
and my heart finds the magic
for I don’t mind the snow.
The snow gives its surroundings
the glimmers Heaven sent.
No,  I don’t mind the snow
for it has a great accent.
It paints the days around me
with its snow white scenery.
No,  I don’t mind the snow,
because it give so much to see.

Ok,  I know many of you won’t like the poem.  Oh well!
That’s life as a poet hehehe.  Judy and the boys are in
here with me.  Benny and Milo are lying right behind me.
I’m trying not to roll over them hehehe.  Actually Benny
is to my left and almost behind me with his head resting
on a leg/wheel of my chair LOL.  I guess they’re a little
confused,  because mom’s still here hehehe.  They had
gotten used to her leaving every Sunday.  I’m glad she
stayed home.  Those roads have gotta be nasty.  Yes
they are drivable,  but still dangerous.  Our car still has
Texas tires on it and it don’t do well on ice and snow.
One day when we have some money we will have to at
least buy two winter tires for the front or the car.  They
cost more than they did for our little Mazda hehehehe.
Of course our Mazda only had 13 inch wheels and this
one has 16 inch wheels.  Quite a difference in size and
price.  So,  I guess I need to be telling you what  tell
you almost every week.  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yep, I wrote 10 more poems with 1 of them being
sort of Christmassy.  Also once again I wrote 22 haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you find
1 or 2 of either or both that you like.  I guess now it’s
time for me to be searching for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most awesome
New Year and a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Ok,  so where are
ya hiding you little whippersnapper?  I see ya you
little varmint.  Will you ever freaken learn that I do
ever so often use my nose drops LOL?  Aside from
you not being completely hidden,  I do have allergies
ya know LOL.  Will you ever learn????????????
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 :)

Starlight Moon

Nights of white
with light in tune
are found on snow
a starlight moon.
Scenes are found
so wondrously
the sights and sounds
that my eyes see.
A starlight moon
reflects upon
the snow at night
until it’s dawn.
With glows bestowed
upon the ground
a starlight moon
is surely found.
Yet when morning
comes to be
a starlight moon
is history.

Decembers Sun

A new day’s dawned
with change of date
as Decembers sun
finds seasonal fate.
January’s morning
comes into view
as Decembers sun
says how do you do.
The meetings of time
connect to and fro
as Decembers sun
sees January snow.
The minutes tick onwards
as each day is found
when Decembers sun
waits time going around.
For as December
finds it is the past
January displays
its own type contrast.
So as the moments
of Decembers sun
fade from the pages
to now what is done,
the stories remembered
from its own display
are still filled with magic
from that Christmas Day.

A Brand New Year

With each day
the shadows show
a brand new year
will soon bestow.
The minutes ticking
thereunto
a brand new year
comes into view.
While ones dream
of better lives
a brand new year
gives hope that thrives.
Our yesterdays
only find
a brand new year
with change of time.
Many choices
need sincere
to make much better
a brand new year.

Looking Forwards

Throughout our ventures
so many will find
seasonal pathways
that stay on their mind.
While looking forwards
those passed days return
as all the memories
that time will not burn.
Sometimes acceptance
of shadows we cast
makes it much easier
for you to move passed.
While looking forwards
to futures display
the passed will still live on
as its special day.
Yet some acceptance
and forgiveness too
can make looking forwards
a much better view.

Tomorrow’s Sunshine

With rays of light
just shining through
tomorrow’s sunshine
might then too.
Yet some storm clouds
might be found
hiding sunshine
all around.
Tomorrow’s sunshine
might still show
even with
the chance of snow.
Behind the clouds
of fluffy white
tomorrow’s sunshine
is in sight.
For it still shines
its own way
tomorrow’s sunshine
day to day.

Noctilucent

Shining glowing
in the night
eyes of a cat
seem very bright.
Found just stalking
there and to
noctilucent
eyes in view.
Sometimes purring
silently
eyes are shining
bright to see.
Then as nighttime
fades away
all that’s seen
is light of day.
That cat meowing
in the night
noctilucent
fades from sight.

The Healing Thoughts

Finding some peaceful
in moments of pain
is sometimes hard for
ones to attain.
The healing thoughts
from Lord God above
can give you peaceful
filled full of love.
When torments gathered
at your door of time
seek the healing thoughts
from Lord God Divine.
Let not your worries
to leave you despair.
Find the healing thoughts
through God’s love and care.
Finding some peaceful
needs you now to pray,
then the healing thoughts
will take you away.
Yes many moments
will still find you pains,
but the healing thoughts
will calm hurricanes.
Maybe not your viewpoint,
but you will soon see
the healing thoughts will
change what will be.
Sometimes some bad times
need to be found
for the healing thoughts
to find common ground.

Frosted Windows

Winters coldness
brings to me
frosted windows
that I see.
Scenes as crystals
in my sight
frosted windows
scattered light.
Through the windows
that I view
frosted windows
are askew.
Scenes transposing
how they are
frosted windows
can’t see far.
Disarraying
all the time
frosted windows
change sunshine.

Soon The Snow

January’s sunshine
displays great delights.
Mesmerizing snowfall
into the nights.
Looking outside now
I can see clearly
snow from December
that fell down so dearly.
Soon the snow will fall
much deeper yet
and make the day end
with a wondrous sunset.
Soon many snowflakes
will fall from the sky
and with winters wind then
learn how to fly.
Soon the snow will
begin its own flight
throughout the daytime
and into the night.

Open Your Mind And Dream

Let lose of your thinking
and dream of delight.
Think about the things
that could be in sight.
Open your mind and dream
of the things you can’t see
and let yourself to find then
what really could be.
Don’t let your dreams to die
letting nightmares take over.
Open your mind and dream
of a field full of clover.
Dream of a passion sky
with clouds all fluffy white.
Open your mind and dream
of a magical sight.
Don’t forget to dream
of some wonderful days
when maybe right now
is just but a haze.
Yet don’t lose reality,
for truth needs be found,
but open your mind and dream
of a smile not a frown.
For maybe one day
that dream will come true
on a day that you’re ready
for it within you.

Haiku
for Jan 3,  2015

It’s a brand new day
with chances found within it
that need us to take.

Never finds someone
in the midst of ever,
so do not lose hope.

Passion is a place
deep within a true heartbeat
that shows emotions.

Losing direction
can get you where you’re going
but not as quickly.

Wintertime’s snowflakes
become the only views seen
as time moves along.

Searching for springtime
might seem as just a glimmer
of your remembrance.

As hours pass by
each second presents doorways
for choices to make.

When we’re with sadness
a smile can be found inside
from times long ago.

Each cloud that floats by
shares a story of itself
written in the sky.

Seen from faraway
our planet looks so tiny
as does those we see.

We’re never alone,
for even in seclusion
Jesus is still there.

Making an entrance
could expose your weaknesses
as you stumble in.

Life is just a thought
that God has given us all
that became much more.

Winning and losing
is just a viewpoint we see,
for which is better.

The gleaming sunshine
is hidden behind the clouds
as winter proceeds.

Believing in not
gives you only emptiness
found deep inside.

The cold of winter
brings chills to the days ahead
with flavors of snow.

Learning from mistakes
often makes us much stronger,
but sometimes does not.

Hearing the wind blow
awakens many seasons
deep inside the mind.

While truth is better,
many will overkill it
saying what is wrong.

A minute in time
gives us all a chance to change
with every second.

Beyond yesterday
is the doorway to today
that we need to shine.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you had a very merry Christmas.  Judy and I did.
We have been watching Christmas movies every night :).
The boys seem to be able tell it’s Christmas. Benny got
out one of his Santa dolls from last Christmas and played
with it.  Why he picked that specific doll to pull out of the
toy box leaves a question in our minds.  Do they know
it’s Christmastime?  Judy and I took the boys over to
spend Christmas eve with us at Judy’s twin sisters house.
We had a blast.  Benny and Milo had quite a time as they
played with all of their cousins.   Trudy has 4 Yorkies and
Benny and Milo love to visit them :).  Benny loves it bit
more than Milo though being they are all much younger
than him.  Milo is 7 years older than Benny and a little
more than 7 years older than all of Trudy’s dogs.  So he’s
the elder of the bunch.  Although,  Benny and Milo act
as though they are brothers even if they are not from
the same breed and their ages are far apart.  I think we
could all learn something from dogs.  They have not an
ounce of prejudice.  Plus dogs are more forgiving than
we could ever think to be.  They don’t hold onto grudges.
Judy and I love our little boys.  They complete our home.
I know they are only here with us for a short time being
they don’t live as long as us,  but for the time that they
are with us they bring us joy and laughter.  Plus I firmly
believe that their is a place for them in Heaven so that
when our time is up and our fleshly bodies no longer
hold our souls within them,  we will see those lovingly
little toothy grins once again.  I guess it’s time for a
new topic huh.  Well,  I’m not gonna write much being
it is still Christmastime to me and I’m sort of taking
a vacation from writing so to say.  I didn’t write any
poems or haiku,  but I will be back once again next
Sunday/week starting off the new year with more of
my poetry,  haiku,  humor and thoughts.  I hope your
new year is filled with abundant blessings.  I’m fixing
to make me and the boys some dinner.  Judy will be
home late this evening as she is every Sunday.  I’m
sure that by then I will be hungry again being I’m not
going to fix me and the boys very much.  But then,  I
haven’t eaten today yet,  so I really need something
to eat.  The boys have dried dog food in their food
pans in the floor if they get hungry.  So,  I guess I’ll
take a little looksee back through this short little bit
that I’ve written and see if I can find a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title for a new little poem.
So I’m taking a short trip to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a decent title and now after
checking I see that it hasn’t been used yet,  but it is
being used today.  So here goes.

When Our Time Is Up

When the year has ended
and our past pictures show
we need to let our journeys
to show us where to go.
Learning from our mishaps
as each day moves along
our lives can be as lessons
teaching many when we’re gone.
Each year holds a pathway
with wrong ways and of right
that we carry with us
as a shadow found in sight.
Don’t allow your heartaches
of yesterdays unfold
leaving you with only
a life of bitter cold.
When the year has ended
and our time is just a thing
God can show us blessings
that we thought but just a dream.
For when our time is up then
and our bodies are worn out
Heaven holds a journey
that true love is all about.

I hope you enjoyed the poem and the pint size version
of my rambling hehehe.  As I said before,  I didn’t write
any poems or haiku this week,  but next week or as the
case will be hehehe next year,  I’ll be back with a bunch
to read.  I hope your New Year is a fruitful one with many
blessings.  Also I pray that your Christmas was a great
one filled with tons of joy.  So before I start looking for
that not so great at hiding Off Switch,  I want to wish you
a most wonderful week and Happy New Year.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Ok,  so where is that silly
off switch hiding this time?  Hehehe it looks like he might
need to go on a diet.   I can see him plain as day while
he attempts to hide behind my Mountain Dew can LOL.
Yes,  I need to lose some weight too hehehe.  I ate too
much,  but I sure enjoyed it :).   Anyways  Gotcha dude,
see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

See ya next year :)

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
and
MERRY CHRISTMAS

It’s almost Christmas and it’s still white as can be outside.
We might get a little bit of warm weather for Christmas eve
and Christmas day.  At least that’s what the predictions are
and they have been wrong before LOL.  I’ve noticed that
through the years the weather predictions will change with
each day gone by hehehe.  So,  only God knows what it will
be doing Christmas day.  Judy and I are planning us a nice
dinner together for Christmas day.  Of course the boys will
get their Christmas treats :).  We got a bit of heavy snow
Wednesday and our Dish cover didn’t work very well.  Yep
it wasn’t long before we could only get two local channels.
I tried to use the water hose to spray some of the snow off
of it,  but our TV Dish is on top of our house and I couldn’t
get close enough to hit it hard enough to knock the snow off.
We don’t have a latter and it wouldn’t of done me any good
anyways,  being I’m sort of scared of heights due to my fall
at work years ago that made 3 one inch holes in my skull
that had to be stapled and stitched closed hehehe.  Before
that I had no fear of heights at all which might of led to me
falling 6 feet into the ends of 3 one inch rods LOL.  Anyway,
it would of been dangerous for anybody that night,  being
the snow makes it even more treacherous.  Even after us
buying and having a dish cover put on the Dish that was
supposed to prevent snow and ice from sticking to it,  it
just held it like a baseball glove.  The snow was that wet
heavy stuff and there was not much of a breeze.  Anyways,
I called Dish up that night and told them I want our dish
lowered so I can reach the darned thing.  The Dish guy
came today,  but after searching could not find anywhere
on our trailer sturdy enough to attach the dish to it,  so it
is still on our roof.  He said he would put it in the books
and told me to call them in spring and he would come
out and put a pole in the ground and attach it there,  but
the ground has too much snow and the ground is frozen
making it way too hard to do it now.  So,  it looks like
if we get or should I say when we get another snowing
like we did Wednesday we will have to find something
else to do.  Maybe watch some of our videos hehehehe.
Our neighbor Mark came over Thursday and climbed
up with his latter and brushed the snow off of our dish.
I couldn’t thank him enough :).  Mark asked me if we
could take them to town sometime so they could shop,
because their car is leaking antifreeze.  I said sure :).
So Friday I went and got him and we went to WalMart
and Hannaford ex Shop and Save and then we headed
to Burger King and I got Judy and I some burgers and
he got him and his significant other some burgers,  then
we headed home.  I had noticed that the driver side
door was being finicky opening it from the outside,  but
didn’t think nothing of it,  but it seems that when the
guy came and plowed our driveway and shoved tons of
snow up against the driver side of the car it damaged
the door handle.  Now the handle doesn’t work at all.
I called our landlord and he was going to come today
and look at it,  but I told him Judy takes care of her
mom on Sundays,  so he will have to come Monday.
I told him we’re expecting our new used bed to get
here then as well LOL.  Our bed has met its maker.
The box springs are crushed and the mattress is worn
out totally.  My mom bought us this bed for a wedding
present back 13 years ago and it has served its time.
Plus our new bed is a queen size and our old one is
just a full size which for 2 large people and very often
two boys/dogs makes for very little room hehehehe.
Judy and I cannot wait to get our new old bed LOL.
We couldn’t afford a brand new bed,  so this will
have to do,  plus it’s better that what we have at the
moment LOL.  Now what else is happening around
this place?  Oh yea,  I went for a little photo drive
while Judy was asleep Friday morning.  The boys
went with me hehehe.  I found some great scenery
to take pictures of.  Some I just held to camera up
in the window while driving 15-20 miles an hour
and I just snapped away,  but often I had to stop
the car and get out and walk to find the best shots.
That is when I sort of noticed that the driver side
door handle was totally messed up.  I got out and
I couldn’t get back in on that side.  I had to keep
going to the passenger side and reach across to
open the driver side door from the inside hehehe.
I guess when we get our SSD at the first of the
year we will get that fixed if our landlord doesn’t
do anything to help us.  Hopefully though he comes
through and gets it righted.  None the less,  life
goes on.  It’s not the end of the world.  We’re not
going to let that ruin our Christmas.  Judy hung
some Christmas balls on our Christmas tree and
it looks GREAT.  She’s been moving stuff around
in the living room making it look more Christmassy.
She moved the treadmill into our spare room and
that helped a lot.  We’ve taken a lot of pictures of
the boys in their Santa suits hehehe.  They look so
cute :).  We’ve been sleeping to Christmas music.
Thank You God for this special time of year.  Your
Son gave us all a way to Heaven that otherwise
we would not have had.  So often many will forget
about the reason for the season and this wonderful
day.  Judy and I will always do our very best to
share Your Glory with others.  Jesus has been our
rock to hold onto through the trials of life and we
thank You for our blessings.  Now I do believe it’s
time for me to begin my little quest 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 of today’s
brand new poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that place
of my recollection that I seem to always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I do think I found a decent
title way back near the beginning and now after
checking I see that it hasn’t been used as of yet,
but today it shall be used LOL.  Enjoy :).

Being Finicky

With Christmas coming
so many want things
such as what’s golden
or large diamond rings.
Yet being finicky
will not shine so true
what that is best then
inside of you.
Let your acceptance
to find ways of less
then maybe you won’t
get in a mess.
Often being finicky
finds you insane
when Christmas comes with
God to attain.
Through God’s Son Jesus
the gifts are so great
that being finicky
only shows hate.
Allow this great season
of Christmas of more
to lessen finicky
wants from the store.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and I didn’t bore you
to death hehehe.  Also I hope you liked the poem.  Yes,
I know,  it was another Christmas poem hehehehehe.
As I’ve said before,  I tend to write more Christmas
poems the closer Christmas gets :).  Anyways,  I hope
you got the meaning of it.  So many people stay focused
on their selfish wants instead of seeing the true meaning
of Christmas.  I pray that you keep alive the blessings
that Jesus has given us all through the year and not
just at Christmas.  :) It looks like the boys are in our
bedroom enjoying the cartoons hehehe.  Yes they like
to watch cartoons,  but now after checking it looks like
they have drifted off to sleep.  Milo is up with his head
on my pillow and Benny is at the end of the bed with
his eyes sort of opened trying to watch the cartoons.
The Misadventures of Flapjack are on hehehe  They
were watching Garfield LOL.  Ok,  so that’s about all
that’s going on around here today.  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 :).
Yep,  10 more poems with ALL OF THEM being
Christmas poems HoHoHo.  I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there with a few
of them about Christmas also hehehe.  I hope you
find one or two of either or both that you like.  Now,
it’s time for me to begin searching for that not so
great at hiding off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend and a joyous Christmas
filled with many blessings.  I pray that your gifts are
sprinkled with God’s blessings and you thank Him
always.  Now,  where is that confounded off switch
hiding this week?  LOL he almost made it hehehe.
He was hiding inside my hot cocoa cup,  but slipped
and fell in making a splash.  It sort of gave you
away dude,  plus,  ya almost got drank hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce
and Benny and Milo

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

The Snow of Time

With clouds of white
and sort of grey
the snow of time
gives its display.
While winters stage
is found so white
nearly every
day and night.
The snow of time
is counted true
with each wintery
daily view.
As snowflakes fall
in Christmas songs
the snow of time
is sing alongs.
Magical moments
are so fine
found as Christmas
the snow of time.

The Kiss of Christmas

While so many heartbeats
sound as a drum
there are still many
still found in a slum.
The kiss of Christmas
most surely can bring
life to ones sadness
and make them to sing.
Yet it needs us to
spread love and cheer
the kiss of Christmas
found so sincere.
Don’t let ones heartbeat
to wither away.
Show them what Christmas
can surely display.
The kiss of Christmas
from your beating heart
can help ones sadness
to surely depart.

heavy snow
of winters dream.
Christmas lights
this country drive
through the snow
seem so alive.
They twinkle brightly
on my way
of heavy snow
through clouds of grey.
The seasons drive
is painted with
some heavy snow
a Christmas gift.
As the miles
are driven to
the heavy snow
displays its view.
White and wondrous
where I go
in Christmastime
the heavy snow.

Finding Santa

With eyes wide opened
ones search to see
old Santa Claus
in the sky Christmas eve.
They’re searching for his
magical sleigh
through Christmas Eve
to Christmas Day.
Trying to find Santa
and see if he’s real
searching through the night,
but magic conceals.
Them finding Santa
is each year a chore
to see if their gifts come
from him or a store.
Children with hopeful
watch and they wait
the time finding Santa
that they anticipate.
Sleep then comes quickly
with the sandman’s charm
and they awaken
to their Christmas alarm.
Them finding Santa
will just have to wait
for now there are presents
this wonderful date.

Leftover Christmas

Throughout the years
ones tend to forget
great things from Christmas
like a little marionette.
Maybe a toy truck
or a little girl dolly
come from old Santa Claus
so big and jolly.
That leftover Christmas
that still lives inside,
but we will often
just throw it aside.
Not letting joyful
of yesterdays years
to help you nowadays
with much lesser tears.
Find all those wonderful
times long ago
a leftover Christmas
with joy to and fro.
Don’t let the sadness
to fill up your view.
Let a leftover
Christmas shine through.

Footprints To Christmas

Winters own snowflakes
in northeastern skies
paint up the season
with winters reprise.
Footprints to Christmas
found in the snow
seem to head onwards
with Christmastimes flow.
Ones with their footsteps
walking along
making their footprints
singing some songs.
Songs about Jesus
and Santa Claus too
footprints to Christmas
become such a view.
If you go follow them
where all they went
footprints to Christmas
might leave your indent.
As you are following
you then are making
footprints to Christmas
with each step you’re taking.
So let those footsteps
that you make in time
show that of Christmas
a footprint design.

Soon We Will See

December doorways
have opened up wide
letting the joy of
Christmas inside.
Soon we will see
that wonderful day
that through Lord Jesus
shows us the way.
Each minute ticking
with hours to go
soon we will see
just maybe some snow.
Then as the season
of wintertime’s while
comes with its passion
of Christmastimes smile,
many will sing of
Lord Jesus God’s Son
of Whom we’ll see
when our lives are done.
Christmastime’s blessings
come with much joy
for soon we’ll see
that day to deploy.
Trees that are lit up
and glowing at night
soon we will see them
that wonderful sight.
The magic of Christmas
makes many hearts sing
of all the blessings
from Jesus The King.

Within Winter

The beginning of winter
sometimes only shows
how that it often
rains and it snows.
Within winter
there is such a day
that for so many
make troubles go away.
That day is Christmas
with its magical flair
that fills so many
with God’s love and care.
Yet within winter
there are ones without
not seeing Christmas
or knowing about.
They might of lost their
joy in the past
from such a time
of a shadowy cast.
Help those to find
that love front and center
that is from Christmas
that’s within winter.

The Season To Remember

The doorways to memories
live on in our hearts
as the season to remember
most surely imparts.
With so many viewpoints
from then unto now
the season to remember
is God to endow.
With Jesus our Savior
giving way through His life
the season to remember
is a way without strife.
Not allowing our hearts to
be swayed by ones hate
the season to remember
Gives Jesus through trait.
His love and compassion
that Christmas bestows
the season to remember
is pure love that grows.
Don’t let ones to change your
view in a way
the season to remember
that’s called Christmas Day.

When It’s Past

When the minutes
dusk to dawn
have just seemed to
move along
it leaves shadows
that we see
when it’s past
through history.
Christmas seasons
morning sun
brings a glimmer
of what’s done.
That is when we
need to change
what we’ve done
bad times again.
Letting Christmas
gleam and shine
in our hearts
a great design.
Let the days of
shadows cast
show the goodness
when it’s past.

Haiku
for Dec 20,  2014

With Christmas coming
many have their own ideals.
Mine are of Jesus.

Allowing a storm cloud
to lose your view of Jesus
means your faith is weak.

Our limitations
are often found in our minds
and not what is true.

Moments come and go,
but Jesus is forever
as then unto now.

Life brings conclusions
that we might not agree with,
but we must accept.

Allowing others
to sway your view on Christmas
could cost you your joy.

The many the few
are the connections in life
that we overlook.

So many footsteps
leave footprints of illusion
and not of the truth.

Knowing someone’s name
does not constitute knowing
who they really are.

Beyond our eyesight
is the perception we’ve missed
that might do us well.

When push comes to shove
some try a little harder,
but not when they should.

Many memories
come back as ghost to haunt us
when they are regrets.

Looking for stardom
could find you wishing for less
and be left alone.

Sometimes our hard times
are the best things to happen
for they teach us well.

The clinking of cans
gives notice to a trash bag
filled full of cans.

Spelunking in caves
gives room for some mysteries
found in the darkness.

Loss of perception
leaves you not knowing truly
what friend is closest.

As letters are formed
and connect into meanings
some words might be lost.

The challenge of strength
could find you playing the fool,
for they might be strong.

When today has passed
it becomes a memory
of what all we learned.

Throwing a snowball
needs someone with a good aim
and good packing snow.

As we leave today
we might find many regrets,
but the deed is done.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been? We’ve been doing pretty well, with
only a few little stumbling blocks :). We went to put up our
Christmas tree only to find that the whole lower half of the
bulbs were not working. The tree was a bit dingy looking
and all, so we decided to buy a new tree. This one is Green
with lights unlike the old one that was white with lights. Also
our old tree was 6 foot tall and this one is 7 foot tall. It was
a close call to be able to get the star on top of it hehehe, but
we managed. LOL we live in a single wide mobile home and
the ceiling isn’t but about 7 1/2 feet or so ;). Anyways, we
got it up. We love it :). It’s still white outside. We haven’t
had any new snow lately though, but who knows, we might
get a little bit this week. It tends to come unannounced from
time to time LOL. It’s only 35 F degrees right now which is
warm for up here, but tomorrows high is supposed to be in
the upper 20’s. Benny and Milo are doing well. They are
as ornery as ever LOL. I just let Benny back inside and
he was in a feisty mood hehehe. I gave him and Milo some
duck jerky because they’ve been good, plus it will maybe
make them leave me alone for a bit so I can finish writing.
It looks like I may have to fill up their water jugs in a bit,
but for now they’ll be OK. They’ve still got a little water
in them. Next topic :). I called my doctors office to tell
my doctor that my Advair wasn’t working too well and he
called in a prescription for a higher dosage and he also
prescribed me a rescue inhaler like I had been using for
many years. So now my breathing is sort of under control.
Bronchial Asthma is something I’ve been dealing with all
my life. Often when having an asthma attack I sound like
a steam ship whistle when I’m breathing hehehe. Judy
says it’s loud and I told her, you think it’s loud, how’d
ya like to be inside my head hehehe. Anyways, it seems
to be helping with the Advair and rescue inhaler. Now,
if I could only find some relief from this darned diarrhea
and arthritis LOL. I guess that’s something I’ll always
have to deal with being I was born with arthritis and I’m
lacking a colon and some small intestines hehehe. That’s
my life. Gotta love it LOL. I would swear that Milo is
trying to empty the water bowls just to make me have
to fill both of the water jugs hehehe. I think he’s part
leaky camel because he has to keep refilling :). He’d
never make it in the desert LOL. He drinks for a while
and then scratches on the door to go outside and pee.
Go figure hehehe. One thing for sure, he gets flushed
out. The vet said Milo’s OK, he’s just old and has a
weak bladder. I guess it’s something that many of us
have to deal with so Judy and I take turns letting him
outside to go pee and whatever else he might need to
do. Benny on most occasions goes out with him just to
play in the snow, but even he’s gotta go sometime LOL.
Milo is lying in the floor right behind me. Benny must
be in the living room on his favorite recliner or maybe
even lying under the Christmas tree looking up at the
lights. He does like to look at the lights. If ya haven’t
already figured out our schedule by now, it’s just me
and the boys again today as it is almost every Sunday.
I just went to check on Benny and he is lying on the
recliner where he can see the Christmas lights hehehe.
I took a picture of him while I was in there :). Milo
started to follow me until he saw me lean down and
pick up the camera. He then went back to his bed in
the floor and laid back down LOL. It didn’t work LOL.
I took a picture of him in his bed :). They have figured
out how to get their sweaters off. When they get tired
of wearing them you will see them slowly but surely
slipping them off LOL. Now if we could just teach them
to put them on and feed themselves. I’m pretty sure
that expecting them to turn the doorknob and open the
door to go out and potty is asking just a bit too much
huh hehehe :). We can’t install a doggie door for a few
reasons. One of which we are renting and another is
that the doggie door would be flapping in the breeze
being we have no wind break and another reason is it
would be snowing in the house and lastly it would be
useless because we never leave the front door opened.
So a doggie door in the screen door would be senseless.
Benny and Milo can’t manipulate the steps in the back
of our house. They’re just a tad too steep. Even I have
a bit of trouble going up and down them, so they don’t
get used much. There’s also more snow back there
being it is never plowed back there and the sun rarely
shines back there which means less snow to melt LOL.
Judy and I got up early Saturday morning or should I
say, I just stayed awake and we headed off to the new
Hannaford Grocery store opening that was at 7 AM.
They were handing out some cash cards for the first 200
customers. We got a 10 dollar cash card and Judy had
a 5 dollar off coupon that she had been saving so we
did our Christmas dinner shopping. We only forgot a
few things such as pumpkin pie, etc etc, but we can get
them another day. This is our favorite time of year.
We’ve been watching Christmas movies and listening
to Christmas music as well as sleeping to Christmas
music hehehe. This has always been a special time
to my family. My dad and me used to go and sing at
the candle light service Christmas Eve night. I miss
him tons, but I know that he is always watching over
me. Thank You God for all of the blessings that You
have given us. Your One and Only Son gave way for
all of us sinners to find a place in Heaven when our time
on Earth is done. I do not fear death, but welcome it
when it is time for me to shed this worn out body and
be with all of my friends and family that have gone on
before me. I know that You are always here for us
with Your Helping Hands to do what we are not able.
Now, I believe it’s time for me to stop my rambling
and begin my search for a word or phrase through all
that I’ve written here that I can use as 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 might of found me a
good title and now after checking, I see that I have
not used it YET, but now it shall be used hehehehe.
Here goes. I hope the poem makes sense.

Your Helping Hands

Days that we’ve struggled
to be what we’re not
often leaves doorways
to what we forgot.
God with Your Glory
You help us to find
the much better pathways
for all of mankind.
Yet there are many
that just look away
and do not seek You
in their day to day.
Your Helping Hands Lord
are there just awaiting
for us to lessen
our bad anticipating.
So many people
are like rubber bands
seeking their own way
not Your Helping Hands.
With times repeated
that snap in their face
Your Helping Hands are
still filled with grace.

Ok, so there ya go. I hope you weren’t bored to death
with my rambling and the poem at least made a little bit
of sense to ya. My stomach is talking to me saying feed
me hehehe. I might feed me and the boys as soon as I’m
done with this. They’re not starving. They have 2 pans
in the floor with 2 different types of dried food if they are
hungry LOL. They aren’t crazy about it, but they’ll eat
it when they get hungry enough hehehehe. Begging for
treats will not always get them a treat. Sometimes it will
get them yelled at hehehe with me pointing at the pans in
the floor. Milo has learned that barking at me does not
work, so he will wait patiently, but there are times that
he will forget and bark at me which gets a look from me
that says, KNOCK IT OFF hehehe. Anyways, I think
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 this week with 9 of them
being Christmas poems :). I also once again wrote 22
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope you
find one or two of either or both that you like. Now it’s
time for me to begin my search for that not so great at
hiding off switch, but not before I wish you a blessings
filled weekend or what that’s left of it and a safe and
God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. OK, so where are ya hiding this week ya silly
off switch? Hopefully you have tried just a little bit
harder at hiding. LOL Nope, just as lame as always.
Hiding behind my respirator ain’t so great, being that
I do use it from time to time ya know hehehehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless fro Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Northeast Full Moon

Through the wintery clouds above
this big ball does appear
high in the sky so late at night
this seasons time of year.
It glows as a big white snowball
that’s floating full of love
as December brings us Christmas
through the clouds up above.
The flavorful times emotions
are painted large and round
with twinkling stars of rhythms
and a magical Christmas sound.
The essence of that big round ball
is that of winters night
found within a moonlight dream
with Christmastime in sight.
The glowing ball of white above
seems to play a tune
Christmastime in New England
a sweet northeast full moon.

Lost In Christmastime

Windows of children
are enhanced by their heart
created by believing
in a Christmas work of art.
The sadness of the past
is then laid to rest
as they’re lost in Christmastime
in their wintery quest.
Snowmen stand awaiting
for the scenes of such delight
while ones lost in Christmastime
seek that wondrous sight.
The stories of old Santa
and his reindeer will be told
while ones lost in Christmastime
watch it to unfold.
The pages turn to Jesus Christ
and manger filled with hay
with children lost in Christmastime
and thoughts about that day.
It’s that magical time of year
that comes alive with glee
and brings God’s joy and blessings found
in ones like you and me.

Bells Of Christmas

With Christmas comes sounds
of jingling bells
found in the songs
that Christmas foretells.
The bells of Christmas
with a sleigh in the sky
ring that of Santa
with reindeer that fly.
Joyful the songs are
sung of much peace
while bells of Christmas then
give their release.
Scenes found so beautiful
as lights in the night
along with some displays
of God’s Holy Light.
Houses all decked out
with wonderful things
as the bells of Christmas
are Heavenly scenes.
It’s with this magical
time of the year
that the bells of Christmas
will ring so sincere.

Looking For Hope

While many struggle
they seek for a sign
looking for hope
that’s in Christmastime.
Yet there are many
that struggle to breathe
looking for hope
that they can perceive.
They need some helpful
found in their view
looking for hope
that’s in me and you.
Sometimes one smiling
can enhance ones heart
looking for hope
then finds ways to start.
Don’t let those struggling
to not get a hand
looking for hope
needs help to withstand.
Often just a glimmer
of Lord God through you
looking for hope
can become brand new.

Dec 13, 2014

At But A Glance

Some find a glimmer
and some find a glance
found within Christmas
with true song and dance.
Moments are counted
as glances are made
while some see lemons
and some lemonade.
Christmas comes surely
with its wondrous flare,
yet there are many
that don’t really care.
Sometimes ones passed days
will destroy their view
and then their Christmas
is dulled in its hue.
Often ones heartfelt
love can enhance
ones view of Christmas then
at but a glance.

One Flake At A Time

The snowflakes fall
as passionate scenery
while they soon cover
the leftover greenery.
One flake at a time
they fall down and land
helping some children
with snowmen to stand.
Soon every hillside
from here thereunto
one flake at a time
creates such a view.
Magical moments
are gathered in place
one flake at a time
that falls on my face.
The scenes become life
in a Christmas design
as the snow falls
one flake at a time.

Winds Of Christmas

As the seasons change
from summer to fall
winter comes surely
with Christmas to call.
Then as if magic
the moment is laid
with winds of Christmas
that Heaven has made.
Time becomes portholes
with ones looking through
finding with amazement
what Christmas can do.
The winds of Christmas
will blow in with joy
often with snowflakes
that then might deploy.
Painting the scenery
white as can be
some see the artwork
as divine history.
Yet there are many
that snow never falls
but winds of Christmas
still comes and befalls.
Maybe through artwork
of Christmas designs
the winds of Christmas
lives in their minds.
Heartbeats of beauty
of what we remember
the winds of Christmas
come in December.

The Closer It Gets

Each day is counted
as time moves along
with every thought of
the last dusk to dawn.
Some view the endings
as all that there is
while the closer it gets
they see their abyss.
Yet I see a future
with times that begin
when life has ended
I then start agin.
A life that is wondrous
without any pain
the closer it gets
my heart can’t abstain.
So joyful the moments
I’m joined with my friends
the closer it gets to
what then never ends.
Life in our bodies
are not meant to last,
for they will only
be times in the past.
Do the best that you can
with lesser regrets
then await Heaven
the closer it gets.
Don’t let your carnality
lead you to Hell,
for the closer it gets
your path will foretell.
Seek now for Jesus
as He pays your debts
then you’ll find Heaven
the closer it gets.

Christmas Garden

A snowy hedge
from distant sights
is now lit
with Christmas lights.
Even a tree
out all alone
shines so bright
from dusk to dawn.
A Christmas garden
made with snow
displays white
a tree that grows.
It has colors
white and blue
that which glimmer
their own hue.
A Christmas garden
grows so tall
an evergreen
that soon will fall.
It will find
a smiling face
found beside
a fireplace.
Lit up nicely
truly so
the Christmas garden
now in snow.

The Stillness of Night

In the stillness of night
some sounds might be heard
Christmastimes stories
with word after word.
Some about Santa
and some about God
as some are maybe
a little bit odd.
Scenes might be blinking
white, blue. green and red
in the stillness of night
with ones in their bed.
Christmastimes glory
might then come alive
with but a moment
of joy in the sky.
The stillness of night
might hold a few things
such as the sound of
an angel that sings.
Singing about Christmas
and Jesus delight
with many sleeping
in the stillness of night.

Haiku
for Dec 13, 2014

Tomorrows journey
begins with footsteps today,
so don’t just sit there.

Life in memories
often includes colored sights
that we have made up.

Looking for the truth
might find you not wanting it
after it is found.

So many shadows
only display the heartaches
due to all the lies.

As winter winds blow
they also show personality
found in the season.

The bush that’s protected
will not be covered with snow,
but another dies.

A butterfly’s life
begins inside a cocoon
from another life.

Links to our problems
are often found in our lives
through many choices.

Knowing your limits
could prevent you from failure,
but then maybe not.

Doing things your way
might find your own destruction.
Listen to the wise.

When we are in doubt
we might need to search our hearts
to find out what’s true.

Leftover insight
might show dull on situations
that display today.

Our pages will turn
as the book of life opens
to expose the truth.

Shortsighted people
will not see what’s before them,
but only see now.

With every person
there’s different perceptions
with opened and closed.

Today brings chances
for a better tomorrow
through our lessons learned.

As things are repeated
the truth becomes much clearer
and hard to deny.

Sharing a mere breath
could help another to breathe,
but don’t smother them.

Only through Jesus
can a heart find peacefulness
through all the thunder.

As a snowflake falls
it might choose its place to land
and become happy.

With every minute
a second leaves some traces
of it’s own design.

Heartbeats in the snow
might shine on as some children
building a snowman.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How has your passed week been?  Has the weekend treated
you well?  It’s been getting colder each and every passing day
up this way.  Benny is loving the snow as usual hehehe.  Milo
would rather just stay inside and if he never had to potty, I’m
sure he would never wish to go outside unless it’s to go for a
ride in the car.  Him and Benny love to ride with us in the car.
Benny is outside right now.  he went out when Milo went out
to go potty,  but he wanted to stay and play.  I’ll have to go
and check on him in a minute.  I mean,  it’s 14 F degrees and
I don’t want him to freeze.  Benny has his sweater on,  but it
isn’t that much added warmth.  I just went to see if Benny was
ready to come inside and he just stood out there looking at me
like,  what do you want?  Hehehe I coaxed him in with one of
his noise making toys.  One of his favorite,  the bird that when
you squeeze it in the right spot it starts chirping LOL.  Benny
has it now in the living room in his mouth making it chirp LOL.
Love that boy!  Milo is lying on our bed in my spot hehehe :).
He’s nice and comfy.  Benny has made it to our bedroom and
is now on our bed with Milo.  I noticed that the big water jug
that fills their water bowl was empty,  so I filled it up and after
setting it in the floor,  I fell down while trying to stand back up.
I think I’m OK.  I just sort of twisted my left wrist while trying
to pull myself back up.  Getting old is a bummer LOL.  Milo
watched me from the end of the bed with a worried look on his
face.  I’ll live.  By the way,  I got the results from the Ultra
Sound that I had done on the one inch lump on my shoulder.
It’s a cyst and I am scheduled to meet with a surgeon early
in January to prepare to have it removed along with a few
moles that he also wants to check and make sure that they
are not cancerous.  Anyways,  I’m relieved about the lump,
but I’ll be so happy when it’s removed,  because it’s putting
pressure on my shoulder which it along with every other part
of my body has arthritis and the cyst makes it hurt even worse.
Oh well,  life goes on.  It’s with the aches and pains that we
realize that we are alive and breathing :).  Also it brings our
own mortality into view in a clearer picture hehehe.  Yep,
I’m alive whether ya like it or not hehehe.  Ok,  so what’s
happening around this place?  Hmm good question.  Oh yea,
I got an email from my friend Rich in New York that does a
Public Access TV broadcast and he is going to use more
of my Christmas poems in the Christmas broadcast as he
did last year.  He told me he would do as he did last year
and let me know which of my Christmas poems he will be
using and send me a DVD of the broadcast and upload it
to YouTube and Vimeo so I can share with ones that are
not able to see the broadcast on TV.  That’s what he did
last year.  Anyways,  Judy and I will enjoy watching it when
we get it.  OK,  next topic.  It’s most surely feeling like its
wintertime.  Right now at 2 PM it’s 12 F degrees.  It was
minus -12 degrees this morning LOL.  Yep,  even if the
calendars say it’s not officially winter,  I say it freaking
looks and feels like it hehehe.  I still take the boys out in
the field for a walk from time to time.  Milo doesn’t come
out as far and Benny and me.  He doesn’t care much for
that white stuff,  but I have caught him playing in it from
time to time LOL.  Both Benny and Milo have come inside
with white snowy beards from sticking their faces down in
the snow hehehe.  Yesterday they were romping around
in the snow together and when I opened the front door
they came running side by side with snowy faces up the
steps and into the house :).  They then continued playing
as they romped around the living room snatching up some
squeaky toys and making some racket hehehe.  They are
our little boys.  My asthma has been acting up a bit more
lately and the respirator that my New doctor prescribed
for me seems to only make it worse.  He prescribed one
of those Advair DISKUS inhalers.  Monday I’m going to
give him a call and see if he can prescribe me what I had
been using before.  I’ve had bronchial asthma all of my
life.  My daughter (Jamye) called me last night and we
talked for a while,  but my asthma was making it hard for
me to breathe and do much talking and that Advair only
made it worse.  I hope Jamye will call me again.  I’m sad
that I was unable to talk long.  Judy could see me from
across the room struggling to breathe.  When I’m trying
to get some sleep,  my lungs begin wheezing making it
real hard to relax.  I usually end up pacing the floor and
then turning the fan on that’s on my nightstand.  It usually
helps me to breathe a little bit.  Otherwise my wheezing
will even bother Judy.  That’s my life in a nut shell LOL.
I do though totally enjoy watching it snow and even from
time to time going outside and playing in it.  That’s the
little boy still alive within me :).  Benny loves it when I
go outside with him and play with him.  Milo will even
go outside from time to time and play with us.  I can’t
do the things that I used to be able to do,  but I have a
good time.  I love taking pictures of the scenery around
here,  especially when it’s snowing or recently snowed.
Christmas is just a few weeks away.  Are you ready?
Judy and I are looking forward to the Blessed day and
the events leading up to it.  Even the days following that
blessed moment are special to us.  Judy and I have now
lived here for 7 years.  We moved up here the first of
December 2007.  It’s been an awesome adventure that
I would of never been on if I had never met Judy back
in April of 2001 in a poetry egroup :).  She has had the
chance to experience Texas and visit my favorite little
place Port Aransas TX.  She saw her first Jelly fish and
walked in the waves.  We caught many photographs of
the sunrises over the ocean and a few of the sunsets from
the KOHOOTZ catamaran dolphin and lighthouse cruise.
We took a cruise on the Texas Treasure and felt the wind
blow in our hair as the ocean shared its beauty.  Judy and
I have so many things to be thankful for.  We do tend to
forget them every once in a while though.  That’s why our
pictures mean so much to us.  We can revisit anytime
we want in our photographs and videos.  Thank You God
for all that You have done for us.  We might tend to let
ourselves forget about all of the good that You have done
for us,  but know that we are very grateful.  I can see now
Your shadows in my past as you helped me along the way
with my many struggles.  Please forgive me for all of my
weakness in then and now.  Thank You for giving us Your
Son Jesus Christ to die for our many sins.  AMEN and
AMEN.  Now I believe I have gone and rambled quite
enough hehehe.  I think it’s time for me to be taking my
little trip back through all that I’ve written here to see
if I can find a 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 believe I found a good title
just a little ways back in my rambling and now after
checking I see that I have not used it yet,  so here goes.
I hope it makes sense to ya hehehe.

Shadows In My Past

With every single footstep made
I found myself with You.
Maybe not so clear back then,
but now I see so true.
You’re in the shadows in my past
and future days to find.
Yes God I know now that you are
with me all the time.
Glimmers shadows in my past
reflect what You have done
through The One called Jesus Christ
that’s Your Only Son.
Shadows of the past and present
show Your Hands are there
with me all the time each day
and found within a prayer.
God I thank You for the things
that You’ve yet to do
and the things You’ve done for me
that I’ve yet to view.

OK,  so there ya go.  I hope that prayer poem helped you.
I find that when I stop and just start writing down my many
thoughts that I can see answers in the words.  Now before
I forget about it,  yesterday Dec 7 was my sister Peggy’s
birthday.  I know I wished you a happy birthday on your
Facebook page yesterday,  but I tried to call you also and
wish you a Happy Birthday without success,  so I hope you
had a wonderful birthday.  I love you sis.  Hopefully you
and mom can make it up here next year maybe for the fall
colors :).  It’s getting a bit colder now with the temperature
being 5 F degrees :).  Benny and Milo are still lying on
our bed.  It’s supposed to get down to minus –7 degrees
by morning.  Yep,  that’s wintertime to me.  Of course it
will most assuredly get colder than that as winter shows its
snowy teeth.  It don’t matter.  I’m sure I will be finding
something good to take pictures of and write about through
it all.  Benny and Milo have been exceptionally good today.
They haven’t pestered me once aside from of course,  Milo
having to go outside and potty.  I might have to give them
a special treat for being so good.  They are getting used
to being here with me on Sunday while Judy goes and takes
care of her mom.  I guess they realize that pestering me
won’t get nothing but a good talking to hehehe.  Especially
when I’m trying to write my article LOL.  Well I believe
it’s time for me to stop rambling and tell you what I tell
you almost every week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems with 5 of them
being Christmas poems.  Also,  I once again wrote 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 be searching for that hardly
elusive off switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful weekend and a week filled with blessings.
Ok,  so where are ya hiding this week ya little varmint.
I have to say,  you are getting a little bit better at your
hiding spots,  but not so great at staying hidden LOL.
If you would just stay down and out of sight,  but NO.
You just can’t stop yourself from trying and peek out
at me,  can ya hehehe.  Well you know what’s next huh.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Sounds of Seconds

Hear the rhythms
seconds make
found as footsteps
that sounds take.
Marching onwards
thereunto
sounds of seconds
make their view.
Imaginations
running wild
often make ones
time compiled.
Sounds of seconds
heard by some
sounds just like
a beating drum.
Yet some seconds
that ones hear
only shadows
yesteryear.
With each second
dusk to dawn
sounds of seconds
move along.

A Snowy Afternoon

With snowflakes falling
on a snowy afternoon
the winds continue blowing
with a little whistle tune.
The glimmers of sunshine
come little so light
as there are clouds there
on into the night.
A snowy afternoon
displays scenes far and wide
with white flakes cascading
right down from the sky.
The scenes become flavored
with winters white stage
on a snowy afternoon
with the turning of a page.
Time becomes moments
of winters delight
with a snowy afternoon
that ends with the night.

The Summer Sun

The Winter solstice
comes so cold
from the seasons
days of old.
There is not a
glimpse of heat,
only snow
beneath my feet.
The summer sun
is gone away
now replaced
with winters day.
Every snowflake
that falls down
covers up
what once was brown.
Even treetops
oh so high
have snow gathered
by and by.
The summer sun
is just a phase
waiting for
it’s future days,
yet now winter
holds so true
with its snowy
wondrous view.
The summer sun
will soon return
when in fact
it is its turn.
For now winter
holds the key
to the door
for us to see.

Beyond The Lights

With the sound of music
and wonderful sights
I see the future
beyond the lights.
Christmases shadows
are found as a heart
glistening truly
as times work of art.
So many gathered
with songs that are sung
as Christmas joyful
of Jesus God’s Son.
Beyond the lights
the treetops glisten
so distantly
while I’m reminiscing.
Christmastimes blessings
are oh so golden
beyond all the lights
as they’re unfolding.
Children’s heartbeats
are in the sights
found within Christmas
beyond the lights.

Deep In The Night

Found in the darkness
are dreams that run wild
deep in the night
of a true little child.
Dreaming of Christmas
and Santa with toys
deep in the night
their wishful deploys.
Some children praying
for so many things
such as the wonders
that Santa Claus brings.
A toy train for Jimmy
and little doll for Susie.
Maybe even a train set
for one that is so choosy.
Way deep in the night
they lay there and listen
hoping for Santa Claus
while reminiscing.
Soon they fall asleep
as the clock sings its song
ticking with the minutes
with a soon hour gong.
At the stroke of midnight
they awaken to hear
sounds of Old Santa
and all his reindeer.
His footsteps are heard
as he heads to his sleigh
deep in the night
and then on his way.
He’d already been down
their chimney with glee
bringing them presents
for morning to see.
They went back to sleep
with dreamlands come true
to awaken by morning
seeing what was to view.
But for now their own
dreamworld lives on
deep in the night
just awaiting for dawn.
Santa had been there
as time had foretold
to bring them their presents
for kids good as gold.
So when they awakened
and went down to look
they saw mom and dad
with a little Christmas book.
Reading about Christmas
and all of its splendor
telling of the story
that was oh so tender.
They said they heard Santa
that night on the roof
along with each reindeer
with hoof after hoof.
Daddy said dear children
we heard Santa too,
now look now and find what
Santa brought you.
The family sang songs
of praise to God’s Son
that God had sent them
this day that is done.
They held hands and smiled
while singing sweet songs
about Christmastime
that early morning dawn.
For deep in the night
God saw every heart
and shined down His wonderful
times work of art.

Time Is Repeated

Remembering moments
time is repeated
sometimes forgiveness
has not been seeded.
Sometimes the future
finds deja vu
within the doorways
of then thereunto.
Time is repeated
with moments at glance
sometimes for bad
or much better chance.
Often our choices
become a path
that is repeated
as bad aftermath.
Time shows us truly
the essence to see,
but many only
relive history.
Time is repeated
as many walk on
sometimes with lessons
and sometimes with none.

A White Snowy Day

When looking outside
I saw in the snow
footprints that glistened
there to and fro.
A white snowy day
with flakes of white falling
displayed the journeys
of a deer come a calling.
Visiting pathways
brought alive certain sights
a white snowy day
with winter delights.
When I walked to the door
and headed outside
my excitement of winter
made my eyes open wide.
The scenes of Christmastime
that were displayed
a white snowy day
was surely God Made.
With every snowflake
that fell to the Earth
I was reminded of
a wonderful birth.
The sins found of many
were surely washed away
thinking of Christmas
on a white snowy day.

Fantasy Moon

Within winters nights
I hear such a tune
with the wind blowing
and a fantasy moon.
The moonlight glimmers
off of the snow
giving a wonderful
magical glow.
The fantasy moon
brings alive the night
making it seem as
it is daylight.
It shows of beauty
with clouds faraway
the fantasy moon
that makes it as day.
The shimmering light
reflects on the ground
that is now frozen
with snow all around.
A Fantasy moon
of wondrous detail
helps with a dream world
white seas set sail.
Oceans of beauty
come into tune
with the sight of the night
and a fantasy moon.

Children’s Hearts

Scenes of Christmas
come alive
Children’s hearts
and children’s eyes.
Stories written
stories read
children’s hearts
at night in bed.
Christmas hopeful
lives and breathes
with what all
a child believes.
Children’s hearts
with Christmas glow
find a snowman
in the snow.
Some snow angels
also made
with tiny hands
the snows persuade.
Children’s hearts
will shout and sing
about what Christmas
has to bring.

My Own Emotions

Surely as wintertime
comes with its white
my own emotions
come into sight.
Footsteps in the white snow
hither and to
become as my footprints
with Christmastimes hue.
Sometimes as markers for
Christmastimes place
becoming emotions
ones find on my face
Showing as it’s snowing
a wonderful time
my own emotions will
show their design.
Found in the makings of
Christmastimes while
my own emotions
are seen as a smile.

Haiku
for Dec 6,  2014

As time moves forward
the past often finds places
in our memories.

A rekindled fire
might burn with mere memories
that are extinguished.

True love of passion
will survive with two heartbeats
if not built on lies.

Completing journeys
begins with destinations
with reality.

When looking forwards
don’t forget your yesterdays
for they are lessons.

Many conclusions
come as circumstantial  thoughts
not built on the truth.

Silence in the night
begins when our voices cease
and rest has begun.

Losing your patience
could cause a large thunderstorm
to erupt inside.

A rose of springtime
seeks some warmth through wintertime
to sprout in the sun.

Now is just a time
that minutes are counted
sometimes as mere dust.

A frosted window
shows the essence of winter
without looking out.

New days are dawning
as many will just look on
seeing yesterday.

The hands of true love
might be hidden in a smile
that only one sees.

As daytime begins
it leaves nighttime to find rest
until it returns.

Starry nights above
show stories high in skylight
as connect the dot.

Pointless are many
as they speak without thinking
with no conclusion.

The Challenge of strength
can be interpreted as
ones mind or body.

Our looks will wither,
but who we are never fades
if we don’t allow it.

Finding who you are
could turn into a wild trip
that could of waited.

Perfection only thrives
within arrogant people
that think they’re perfect.

Beside running streams
lies emotions of water
as ripples in time.

When night comes starry,
the moon comes glimmering too
with its smiling face.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a cold and rainy day with a little snow early this
morning. It’s 42 F degrees right now which is rather warm
at the moment compared to the passed few days we’ve had.
The temp is supposed to bounce up and down for the next
few days, then maybe finally hopefully settle into the cold
of winter. I hate it when it snows and then gets above the
freeze mark which causes melting and then it just refreezes
when the temperature goes down. I don’t mind it so much
driving in snow, but the ice is hard enough to walk on much
less drive on LOL. Benny is loving all of the snow. Every
time we let Milo out to go potty, Benny runs outside with
him, but when Milo comes back in, Benny still wants to stay
and play. We have to come back later to check to see if he
is done playing in the snow LOL. I just let him back in a
moment ago and he was all excited. He grabbed up some
squeaky toys and took off through the kitchen and right
between my legs hehehe. Milo was waiting for him to come
back in and he went running along side of him. They are
both now lying in their doggy beds right beside me. They
are getting used to the Sunday rituals hehehe. Milo will
watch from the bedroom as I hold lil Benny up so he can
watch mom drive out of the driveway. They know she’ll
be home later. Benny keeps his ears focused on listening
for Judy to come home LOL. The downfall to that is that
he barks at anything that he thinks might be mom driving
in the driveway and I have to open the door and let him
look so he’ll shut up :). But of course, when he is sure
that it is mom, he goes ballistic and there is no doubt
that it is Judy driving up. Yep, those boys love mom a
whole bunch. When she comes in the door, both Benny
and Milo are jumping up on her trying to say hello LOL.
I have to hold Benny back until Judy makes it in the
door or he’ll run out and get right under her feet and
make it hard for her to walk. They do that with either
of us when we’re gone for a bit. When I get out of the
car to go check our mailbox, Benny starts whimpering
and Judy will lower the back window so he can watch me.
Anyways, onwards to hopefully another topic hehehe.
Judy and I had a great Thanksgiving. We were though
afraid that we were going to be stuck at home due to all
of the snow, but our landlord sent a guy to plow us out.
So, we went over to Judy’s sisters house and met up
with more of the family. Both of Judy’s daughters were
there and our granddaughter Rylee. Also a few others
of the family were there. Brother in Law Dennis cooked
the turkey and he did a fabulous job. I don’t even like
turkey and I went back for seconds hehehe. After we
finished eating, a few of us gathered around the table
and played Pictionary. That was a blast even if a few
of us didn’t draw so well LOL. Benny and Milo had
a great visit with their cousins. Yep, them and their
4 Yorkie cousins were all over the place. We were
pretty much ready to come home after 5 or 6 hours
and Benny and Milo were too :). I hope you had a
safe and happy Thanksgiving. I ate too much LOL.
My stomach is still feeling the swell hehehehehehe.
I went Tuesday and got an ultra sound on the lump
on my shoulder and now I’m waiting patiently for the
results. I hope it isn’t anything bad. Hopefully he
will be able to just remove it without any problems.
It’s making my shoulder hurt really bad. It’s in God’s
Hands. Anyways, looking on towards this week I
can see that December is finally making it’s intro.
Yeppers, Monday is the first day of December which
tonight begins the 25 days till Christmas. I’m writing
more and more Christmas poems the closer it gets :).
It’s a mystery to how many I will get written this year.
I got a hundred written last year and the year before.
Boy Milo is doing some wood cutting hehehe. He’s
our little lumber jack. Ok, if ya don’t know what I’m
talking about, think Sawing Logs/Snoring hehehe.
It’s still 42 F degrees outside. Tomorrows supposed
to be a high of 40 F, but drop to 11 F tomorrow night,
then a high of 21 F for Tuesday LOL. Crazy is right.
I wish it would just make up its mind. Although, I’m
sure that it will soon enough, and the 40 F degree days
will not be seen until maybe April or May hehehehe.
I thank God for all of the beauty that displays through
the doorways of winter. God does His decorating with
the snowflakes that fall. The snow becomes a blanket
that is spread over the scenery making it to glisten.
Sheesh, Milo is freaking snoring LOUD! It makes
it rather hard to think. I’ve gotta wake him up and then
let him go back to sleep. Maybe that will work LOL.
Hehehe it stopped it for a bit, but for how long that
is the winning question :). I guess I need to hurry and
make my journey back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find a decent word or phrase that
I can use for the title for today’s brand new poem
and do it quickly before Milo’s snoring starts again.
So it’s away I go to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. It looks
like I found a good title not but a few lines back, so
let’s see what I can do with it, if anything at all :).
Here goes!!! Milos snoring lightly now LOL.

Doorways of Winter

The chills of winter
will enter through
bringing along scenes
that come into view.
Doorways of winter
have knobs that will turn
maybe invisible,
but moments discern.
Minutes are gathered
as doors open wide
allowing the fragrance
of Christmas inside.
Doorways of winter
are found in the air
flavored with snowflakes
and God’s love and care.
Each scene’s transposed as
time front and center
with Christmas coming through
doorways of winter.
This time every year
as seasons move on
doorways of winter
display a new dawn.
Christmastimes blessings
with children at play
doorways of winter
have so much to say.
Thankful for family
and love given true
doorways of winter
show a Christmassy hue.

I wasn’t intending on writing another Christmas poem, but
there ya go HoHoHo hehehe. I hope you liked it OK and
maybe even my rambling hehehe. Yep, I do tend to ramble
don’t I hehehe! LOL I thought I heard someone calling my
name and it was just Milo in a muffled snore hehehe. Benny
and me went to the front door and looked. Nope, nobody
there. It’s too early yet anyways hehehe. Benny stayed in
the living room and more than likely he’s lying on his most
favorite recliner to keep a look out for Judy/mom hehehe :).
He’ll be back in here after he gets tired of waiting. If I get
done writing in time, I might fix us something to eat, but if
not then we’ll eat when Judy gets home. Speak of the devil,
here comes Benny ;). He’s back in the floor lying next to
Milo right beside me. Yep, I know these boys. It’s gotten
to be a regular thing every week hehehe. Milo’s begun his
vibrato/snoring again :), but thankfully I am almost done
with my writing. Oh yea, I tried to call ya mom, so I guess
this will have to do, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I love ya bunches
and bunches mom. Now, I need to tell you what I tell you
almost every week and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yep, 10 more poems with SIX of them being
Christmas poems. I’ll let you figure out the others, LOL.
Yep, wrote some about us. I also wrote 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 it’s time for me to
be searching for that horrible at hiding off switch, but not
before I wish you a most wonderful weekend or what that’s
left of it and a blessings filled week. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now where’s that dad burned
off switch attempting to hide this week??????? You’re
getting better or I’m just getting worse at searching LOL.
I see ya dude! Hiding under my tissues would of been a
good spot if my allergies weren’t acting up so freaking bad.
Aaaaaaachewwwww. I think I lost a brain cell that time :).
Anyways, Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. Oops I forgot, I wrote one extra poem, so that makes
11 for this week instead of 10 hehehe. So, there ya go :)

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

Sweet Embrace

Ceilings of grateful
are found in the sky
with many angels
to watch till we die.
Embracing the moments
with their love and care
all of God’s angels
are answers to prayer.
Sweetly they watch us
and guide us so true
all of God’s angels
are for me and you.
Angels of mercy
from Heaven above
sweetly embrace us
with God’s Holy Love.
Even when problems
come with disgrace
all of God’s angels
give sweet embrace.

Winter Stars

Seamless beauty
winter stars
join with Venus
and with Mars.
Starlit windows
open true
giving me a
wondrous view.
Found as dreams
with endless roads
winter stars
the skies expose.
Seaming timeless
pages turn
winter stars
my eyes discern.
Up above me
oh so far
I can see the
winter stars.
As they twinkle
in the night
the winter stars
show their delight.
Endless dreamlands
I can see
the winter stars
turn Christmassy.
Then those twinkles
that I gaze
turn to Heaven’s
Christmas days.
Each star glistens
with its hue
winter stars
of thereunto.
Christmas beacons
through the night
winter stars
so very bright.

Northeastern Sunrise

Maine’s early mornings
bring sunshine to see,
northeastern sunrise
found so Heavenly.
Coming up early
from that eastern sky
the sun brings its glory
to soon be so high.
A northeastern sunrise
with colorful hues
sometimes as purple
with shades of some blues.
Northeastern sunrises
brings forth a sight
that is a present
that’s given from night.
Soon as the morning
shines in my eyes
I am with joyful
northeastern sunrise.

Our Little Shadows

Four legged footsteps
make sounds as they go
our little shadows
found then to and fro.
Walking behind us
while anticipating
our little shadows
are watching and waiting.
They are our boys
as brothers in time,
yet they’re with breeding
of a different design.
Our little shadows
are four legged true,
but we do love them
for they are true blue.
Four legged shadows
are God’s given grace
our little shadows
follow us everyplace.
Hearts filled with passion
those shadows of love
walk on with footsteps
from Lord God above.

Simple Bliss

Winters mornings
give a kiss
sometimes with some
simple bliss.
Flakes of snowfall
landing true
simple bliss
becomes the view.
Distant scenes are
Christmas sights
simple bliss
found in the nights.
Winters wonders
find a way
to expose that
Christmas day.
With a snowman
children made
simple bliss
is lemonade.
Christmas blessings
far and wide
simple bliss
will come inside.
With some lights
red, green and blue
simple bliss
can live in you,
Christmas joyful,
Heavens kiss
might expose some
simple bliss.
Found within a
day and time
Christmassy
and so divine.
So if sadness
finds you blue
find some simple
bliss in you.
It might be
forgotten days
simple bliss
of wondrous ways,
but you might just
find a smile
simple bliss
from distant mile.

Two Trees

In a forest of trees
stands two all alone.
Two evergreens
so tall they have grown.
They have seen many
to come and to go
each Christmas season
amidst fallen snow.
The two trees stand there
watching and awaiting
always each season
just anticipating.
They have only dreamed
of Christmas with lights
them being lit up
so bright in the nights.
Each and every winter
they hope and they pray
that they will soon see
that special day.
Then one winters night
they heard some faint voices
Christmas tree searching
ones making their choices.
All of the sudden then
here came a little boy
looking up at them
and filled full of joy.
He hollered dear daddy
come look and come see
I think I found
the very best Christmas tree.
His dad came then trudging
on through the snow
looking up high
and looking down low.
His dad said now son
there’s two here the same
both of them wondrous
but not why we came.
Yet while he stood there
he thought of a friend
that the other tree
he could surely send.
The two trees smiled
as they were cut down
to finally see that
great Christmas town.
Stood up so sturdy
with lights and decorations
this had surely filled
their best imaginations.
Seeing the children
to give them applause
then go to bed
to await Santa Claus.
We both had our places
with true window views
watching all the lights
of reds, greens and blues.
Across the street
we could see each other
smiling all lit up
trees just like brothers
Then during the night
we both heard a sound
and down the chimney
we heard Santa bound.
This was the man that
those children awaited
and that great moment
that we anticipated.
We had finally found
our Christmas families
yet not together
but still as two trees.

White Flakes of Christmas

White winters mornings
awaken with scenes
snowflakes of Christmas
that fill many dreams.
White flakes of Christmas
fall down to the Earth
creating artwork
of blessings filled worth.
Scenes mesmerizing
found as delight
snowflakes of Christmas
falling pure white.
Christmas with snowmen
and snow angels too
white flakes of Christmas
display such a view.
Children all playing
while throwing snowballs
white flakes of Christmas
most surly enthralls.
Each scene of Christmas
is found at a glance
sometimes so wondrous
as God’s song and dance.
White flakes of Christmas
most surely are found
always up northward
when Christmas comes around.

Just Reminiscing

As time has moved along
it’s left me to dream
just reminiscing
every little thing.
Thinking about my childhood
times long ago
just reminiscing
things that I know.
I remember Christmas
when I was so young
singing about Jesus
Lord God’s Only Son.
Those times I remember
with mom, dad and sis
just reminiscing
I now surely miss.
Christmas light looking
as we drove around
looking at the lights
with windows rolled down.
Those days long ago
are just a memory
just reminiscing
our old Christmas tree.
The train going around it
on its little track
just reminiscing
those days way back.
Now I’m much older
with a wife of my own
watching each Christmas
with white scented tone.
Us now together
with our little boys
Benny and Milo
and their squeaky toys.
So, now is most special
with future to see
just reminiscing
our own history.

Lost In A Smile

Sometimes a moment,
sometimes a place
lost in a smile
finds home on my face.
Ventures of heartbeats
time moves along
lost in a smile
creates a new dawn.
Often ones needing
that you have been there
lost in a smile
displays love and care.
My own perceptions
of yesterdays path
lost in a smile
shows good aftermath.
Sometimes our choices
of good times or bad
lost in a smile
replaces the sad.
It’s how we view it
those times long ago
lost in a smile
can help you to glow.
Don’t let the darkness
to envelop you
lost in a smile
can better the view.
Let God to help you
see passed all the greys
then lost in a smile
can show better days.

Dancing Hearts

The holidays
of timeless scenes
dancing hearts
create some dreams.
Moments gather
growing true
dancing hearts
of me and you.
Two together
holding hands
dancing hearts
of timeless sands.
Winds of journeys
travel on
dancing hearts
from dusk to dawn.
Us together
watching time
growing stronger
yours and mine.
Heartbeats beating
truthfully
dancing hearts
through history.

It Has Begun

Winter’s here
it has begun
with the sight
of mornings sun.
Christmas follows
with its sights
lights that twinkle
in the nights.
It has begun
that wondrous day
some with snow
to go and play.
Christmastime
is coming soon
with each song
we sing in tune.
Songs of Jesus
Lord God’s Son
Christmastime
it has begun.
Even Santa
songs we hear
sung by many
so sincere.
It has begun
that wondrous time
Christmas blessings
so sublime.

Haiku
for Nov 29, 2014

A thought does nothing
until action is followed,
but make sure it’s good.

Heartfelt emotions
can be viewed in the wrong light
if you are not clear.

Our own integrity
can become soured ventures
if we’re not careful.

The light of morning
comes shining through the windows
giving a new glimpse.

Challenging others
could end up with you losing
even if you won.

As winter winds blow
the signs of the times are seen
sometimes as snowflakes.

Trudging through the snow
leaves some footprints for others
that they might follow.

Fighting off bad thoughts
gets harder when repeating
pathways you’ve chosen.

Looking for answers
through your own stupidity
might create problems.

Allowing a problem
to become all that you are
could bring your downfall.

The moonlight glistens
as stars in the sky twinkle
giving us some light.

A simple shadow
could be just a mere shadow
of something that’s passed.

Beyond our eyesight
there are many things to see
that are never seen.

Sometimes ones heartbeat
can become as a rhythm
sounding as a drum.

Less of our choices
can often show better ways
if we’re bad choosers.

Kinks in an idea
will come when it’s not thought through
and just acted out.

Looking at the clouds
you might see a few items
that you recognize.

If not letting go
you might find yourself in pain
from stretching too far.

Gossip is a killer
as a two edged sword of words
that could cut your heart.

Life is a flower
that blooms within its own time
and not before it.

When your shadow fades
you might find you’re in darkness
but not without God.

Harboring anger
could make you as dynamite
to one day explode.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another wintery week around here, but we have
yet to of had the full fledge onslaught of winter up this way.
Nope, we’ve had nothing this year like New York has had
recently. They had the lake affect snows that caused more
than their share of snow to be dropped on them. I’m quite
sure that there were a few other states in the neighborhood
that got slammed a bit. We’ve still got snow on the ground,
but nothing of a grand detail. I’m pretty sure the full beauty/
fury of winter will come in its own time LOL. I’m actually
excited to see what it will do this winter. Although I’m sure
that after a month or so of it, I will be excited to see it done
with hehehe. Too much of anything can get old ya know LOL.
Benny and Milo are doing well. Milo had to go outside and
go potty a minute ago and so Benny went outside with him.
Milo is already back inside, but as always, Benny is not,
because he wanted to play in the frozen stuff some more :).
Benny simply adores snow LOL. I just went to check on
him and he’s still not ready to come inside where it’s warm.
Silly boy! I’ll go and check on him again in a bit, but it’s
onwards with my rambling for now hehehe. This week I’ve
got a doctors appointment for an ultrasound on the lump on
my shoulder and two large moles on my back to make sure
they are not cancerous and then I’m having them removed.
Hopefully all goes well. I don’t think I have anything to
worry about. I’m quite sure that God has much more for
me to do, but if not, then that’s life. Our time is numbered.
So, I just went to see if Benny was ready to come back in
and he was sitting at the top of the steps waiting for me :).
Now he’s in here lying in the floor right beside me. Milo
is in the bedroom lying in a doggy bed at the moment, but
I’m sure he’ll be in here shortly hehehe. Speaking of the
devil, here he comes LOL. Now he’s lying in the floor on
the other side of me. I’m surrounded :). Milo just got up
and went to lay down next to Benny. They are so sweet :).
Oh yea, last night Judy and I discovered that our favorite
cartoon channels are back. That was quite a thrill. Yes,
we like to watch the old cartoons hehehe. We’re not too
crazy about the new ones. There are few of the new ones
that we like, but we prefer our favorites on Boomerang
and the Cartoon Network. We’re still young at heart :)
I am having trouble writing due to the boys now up and
about wanting my undivided attention LOL. They are
now both right behind me. Ok, so I’ll try to finish with
my journal. The days have gotten real short here lately.
It seems that no sooner than the sun rises, that it sinks
in the west LOL. I have been running out of energy
much faster than normal. It seems no sooner than I get
up. I am exhausted LOL. Getting old I guess! Benny
keeps barking at sounds that he thinks is mom coming
home. LOL I said, she won’t be home till much later,
so knock it off ya lil over active doorbell hehehe. Milo
has gotten into the habit of following Benny’s lead and
starts barking or in many cases running for the door
if Benny thinks it is something we need to know hehehe.
I can usually tell if it’s truly something important when
Benny starts his whining and jumping at the door LOL.
Who needs a doorbell? We have one, but on most
cases, Benny he starts barking before anyone has come
to the door. They might of just driven in the driveway :)
We bought us a dish cover for our satellite dish that is
supposed to keep the snow and ice from sticking to it.
Our landlord said he’d come and put it on it Monday
or Tuesday. Our dish is on the roof of our house and
I don’t do heights very well anymore due to a few bad
falls I’ve had in the past. Anyways, hopefully that
dish guard or what is called Dish Armor will prevent
us from having too many problems with loss of a signal.
Of course there are weather conditions that we just
cannot do anything about and we’ll just have to accept
that. It’s not too cold right now. Only 35 F degrees.
Tomorrow and Tuesday believe it or not, it’s supposed
to be in the low 50’s, but then by Wednesday drop to
the low 30’s and by Thursday and Friday in the low 20’s.
So the warm days will be few hehehe. Yeppers, winter
is making its entrance. I just went to the kitchen to
get me a Mountain Dew and heard the pitter patter of
tiny feet right behind me as Benny and Milo followed
me there and back LOL. My little shadows hehehe :).
Well, other than what I’ve mentioned, there’s not
much of anything happening around here other than the
regular stuff LOL. Judy and I watch all of our favorite
TV programs together. Friday we finally watched our
newest video, The Man of Steel and It was pretty good.
It’s almost time for us to begin watching our Christmas
movies :). Of course we love to watch them anytime.
Benny just went ballistic thinking Judy was home and
Milo followed suit hehehe. I had to hold Benny up to
the door so he could look outside and see that it was
just the neighbors LOL. With all of these distractions
it will be a freaking miracle if I ever get this journal
finished :). It’s OK hehehe, I’m sure I will get it done.
I have done with much worse distractions :). God gave
me this ability to express all of my thoughts in writing.
I’ve had this gift for many decades, but there were
a number of years that no one knew of it. I kept it
secret. It wasn’t up until I fell ill and almost died in
1994 that I found that others might like to read my
thoughts. One never truly enjoys life until they are
faced with death and many times the reason for life
is more apparent as it was for me. I found that many
people enjoyed my levity and insights. My gift was
most surely a blessing. You also have blessings that
you may not be aware of due to many other factors in
your life. Maybe the wrong time and place. Our gifts
explode into reality when the right time has begun.
Don’t let yourself get caught up wishing and wanting
for someone else’s gift. Your gift is surely no less
than any other. It’s our gifts combined that create
larger blessings. Let God fill your heart with His
wants for you and you will be found complete with
blessings abundant. Now I believe it’s time for me
to be taking my little trip back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s brand new
poem. So, it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I believe I may have found a decent title
and now after checking I see that it has not been
used yet by me of course hehehe, but we’re fixing
to remedy that LOL. I hope it makes sense :).

Worse Distractions

Times and places
in between
might distract us
sights unseen.
Things we’re thinking
thoughts obscured
might distract us
from God’s Word.
Worse distractions
song and dance
might just put us
in a trance.
Mesmerizing
echoes blast
worse distractions
from the past.
What we’ve yet to
just let go
might distract us
to and fro.
For when passed days
live in you
worse distractions
live there too.
Now and here
needs interactions
to work through
the worse distractions.
Make them tools
of lessons learned
worse distractions
bridges burned.
There are answers
in the time
worse distractions
best design.
So let now
to find you peace
worse distractions
own release.
With a silent
prayer to God
worse distractions
turn applaud.
With the peaceful
Heaven sent
worse distractions
find content.

There ya go :) I hope that made at least a little sense to
you :) and I hope you enjoyed all of my rambling hehehe.
It’s getting late and Milo is staring at me. He’s giving me
that little glare, like it’s almost time to eat. The fact is
to Milo, anytime is time to eat LOL. But wait he must :).
He’s now getting a drink of water which I’m sure will be
followed with a knock at the door telling me that he has
to go pee hehehe. He has a weak bladder. Ok so he’s
a knocking LOL. He just came and jumped up here to
tell me in case I didn’t get the message :) I’ll be back.
I took a bathroom break while he was outside to sort of
kill two birds with one stone :). So, what have I forgotten
to tell you about hmmmm???? I can’t think of anything.
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. Yep, 10 more poems with 2 of them being
Christmas poems. Also I wrote once again 22 haiku for
all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope you find one or
two of either or both that you like. Now I believe it’s
time for me to begin my search for that not so evasive
off switch, but not before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend or what’s left of it and a blessings filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too. Ok, now
where are ya hiding this time ya silly thing? Hey that
was actually a good hiding spot this time aside from it
being one the places you had to come up for air hehehe.
Plus your sneezing kind of gave ya away LOL. Hiding
in my little pepper shaker didn’t turn out so great huh :).
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

Tomorrows Sun

Yesterdays footsteps
on tomorrows sun
make now a path with
the new days begun.
Tomorrows doorway
is taken in stride
when we are found then
somewhere inside.
Then with our pathways
of tomorrows sun
we might find answers
to why things are done.
Left ways perception
or right ways then seen
might display moments of
tomorrows sun dream.
With all our yesterdays
paving the way
tomorrows sun will
find us today.

Those Memories

Times I remember
as oceans beach sand
I find a dreamland
where two lovers stand.
Watching the repeating
of waves come ashore
those memories are
oh so much more.
Two sets of footprints
are seen faraway
found in a dreamland
of that distant day.
The scenes are of beauty
two hands holding tight
those memories are
us there in sight.
Walking in the waves
right up to our knees
we’re holding hands
in those memories.

To Judy Ann Pearce
From William Earl Pearce II

Blissful Distraction

Sometimes our troubles
can become better found
when they are seen from
a different time around.
It’s with our viewpoints
that gives a reaction
sometimes as problems
blissful distraction.
When many footsteps
make troublesome miles
blissful distractions
might display some smiles.
Mornings of dewdrops
with breezes blowing
blissful distractions
might begin snowing.
With every minute
of each mornings dawn
a blissful distraction
might help you move on.

Lavender Heart

Some see the world as
bullets just flying
as there’s so many
either dead or just dying.
The soldiers of freedom
still walk evermore
just like they’ve done
many times and before.
The scenes are horrific
that so many find
making a soldier
of heroes design.
Some see the fighting
and do not see true
how they’re protecting
our red white and blue.
Then a few soldiers
receive for their part
what that is purple
a lavender heart.

Winter Awakens

As the sky changes
it displays a view
winter awakens
each day so anew.
Then as the season
December does find
many are finding
a Christmas type mind.
Winter awakens
with snowflakes that fall
or maybe pictures
of white over all.
People begin then
hanging their lights
that are with beauty
found deep in the nights.
Winter awakens
with things that we see
as maybe twinkling
lights on a tree.
Then there’s not any
moments mistaken,
for Christmas comes when
winter awakens.

Deciding To Change

While choices doorways
are found in our sight
we have the chance to
do what is right.
Not letting past days
to be who you are
deciding to change can
make you a star.
Sometimes our future
needs new direction
deciding to change with
a better correction.
Don’t let your past days
troublesome heart
to be just remembered
as discolored art.
Change the direction
that you have been going
if what that’s seen is
trouble bestowing.
Right now this moment
some good can attain
if you find truthful
deciding to change.

Imagine Christmas

Looking within us
our minds eyes might see
signs of the times
of our history.
Imagine Christmas
with glistening trees
or maybe snowflakes
as white fluffy seas.
Imagine the moment
that Christmas is here
with all the songs
ones sing so sincere.
Look now within you
and find that great place
that is of Christmas
with Jesus embrace.
Imagine Christmas
as time goes around
then look before you
as Christmas is found.

Vision Lake

While floating on
that vision lake
sights and sounds
are no mistake.
Splashing waters
side by side
as we journey
on our ride.
Me and Paw Paw
drifted on
after dusk
and into dawn.
We went floating
fishing true
vision lake
of thereunto.
Time has passed now
I can see
vision lake still
him and me.
We were best friends
him and I,
but he one day
had to die.
My sweet Paw Paw
still holds true
he’s my granddad
through and through.
Up in Heaven
I am sure
he has a place
to set my lure.
When I die
we’ll surely make
ripples on
that vision lake.
Up in Heaven
him and I
will be fishing
by and by.

Distant Moment

A distant moment
faraway
lives and breathes
right now today.
That sweet moment
I recall
colors of the
leaves of fall.
Times reflections
distantly
become what my
eyes can see.
Pictures taken
times request
now are found
the very best.
A distant moment
photograph
remembers what
has come to pass.
Found as pictures
counted true
a distant moment
comes in view.

Traveler Winds

Snowflakes found falling
as traveler winds
become the blessings
as each one transcends.
Finding their journeys
as winter winds blow
the end of the journey
becomes mounds of snow.
The traveler winds
are always changing
making the white snow
always rearranging .
With every single breath
of a windy day
the traveler winds
create a display.
Some become drifters
seeking new sights
in traveler winds
of days and nights.
Sometimes the snow will
pile up so deep
until the traveler
winds seek to sleep.
Then as the moments
of peaceful is found
the traveler winds
leave snow on the ground.

Haiku
for Nov 22, 2014

Now finds tomorrow
as often just mistaken
for it’s not in stone.

Finding a storm cloud
does not guaranty a storm,
for it might move on.

With quicksand of time
many find themselves hopeless
when without Jesus.

Peace comes quietly
as ones focus on destruction
distracted by war.

Lingering echoes
might be the sounds in the night
of ones that have passed.

When looking outside
you might miss the view inside
of your family.

Minds that will gather
can bond their thoughts together
and make them as one.

Lines on writing paper
help to keep the words in place,
but some ignore them.

In a winters day
you might find yourself standing
in mounds of snow.

Now is a shadow
of yesterdays that we’ve seen
that we might not like.

Similar people
might not think so similar,
for we are unique.

So many answers
come in form of some questions
that have no answers.

Life in a nutshell
contains quite a lot of nuts
that need to be cracked.

Lingering snowflakes
create stories of winter
written high and low.

As evening draws near
the last of the days sunlight
shimmers in the west.

Minutes becomes time
that’s added onto moments
with hours counted.

Impatient people
often leave wakes in their lives
that crash on others.

Believing in ghost
is written in the bible
as The Holy Ghost.

Life is a moment
that is already written,
but maybe not done.

Pages we’ve read through
might have some hidden meanings
that we’ve overlooked.

Holding too tightly
to your yesterdays in time,
might cease any growth.

Blessings encountered
can be something regretted,
but turn out for good.
