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.

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

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

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.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How’ve ya been?  We’ve been doing pretty well.  I finally found
an MD doctor and he has taken me on as a new patient.   Last
Tuesday was my first visit.  I gave them all of my transcripts
from Medical city to copy.  Boy they loved me for that hehehe.
I’ve gotta hang onto them myself being they are from 1994-
95 and they only hang onto records for 10 years or that is what
I was told.  The lady looked at the large folder of doctors notes
and went sheesh hehehe.  I said sorry,  she said it’s OK LOL.
Anyways,  I have a male MD and he is talking about having
this lump taken off of my shoulder and a few moles off of my
back of course after he makes sure that they’re not cancerous.
I’m scheduled to see him again in January.  I just hope all of
that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.  OH well,  it’s gotta be
done.  I have many other things that I will have him focusing
on that I hope he can help me with,  but many things that I’m
sure he can’t do no more than my previous doctors.  Oh well.
Life goes on or at least it does in some form of existence :).
I’m not afraid of dying.  I’ve been there knocking at the door
and from what I saw it was very peaceful,  but it was not my
time and so I lived.  Now,  what else is there to talk about?
We’ve still got white stuff on the ground.  It’s been lightly
snowing most of the day and me and the boys went out for
a little stroll in the field.  Ok so it turned out to be just me
a Benny being that Milo wasn’t crazy about the idea of
going out there,  but he did come out a little ways before
turning around to head back home hehehe.  Benny on the
other hand did as always,  just bounced around as he went
exploring and when I was ready to head back,  I had to
keep hollering,  BENNY COME ON,  IT’S TIME TO
HEAD BACK.  He would start running towards me but
just as a child with ADHD he tends to get distracted by
the littlest things such as a clump of grass or a mound of
snow and I’ve gotta keep reminding him that it’s time to
head back to the house hehehehe.  Milo by that time was
already on the front steps barking saying he’s ready to
go back inside LOL.  It was sort of cold,  but nothing
that compared to what it will be in next few weeks LOL.
Right now at 3:00 PM it’s 32 F degrees.  It was around
17 F degrees this morning.  Again,  nothing compared
to what it will be in the near future hehehe.  Judy and I
were talking about the weather just the other day and
she reminded me that it’s still considered Autumn/FALL
and winter hasn’t officially gotten here yet :).  Of course
there’s nary a tree with any leaves left to fall other than
of course the Evergreens that stay green all year long
and they don’t really have leaves.  It’s just me and the
boys again if ya haven’t guessed by now LOL.  Judy’s
doing her weekly thing :).  Me and the boys use it as
guy time hehehe.  OK,  so they’re dogs,  they are our
boys.  If anyone was to stand and listen outside our
door they would think we were talking to real kids :).
The sky has cleared up a bit.  Benny just now started
raising a ruckus because he heard a car outside,  but
it was just the neighbors.  I held him up to the door
and let him have a look.  That shut him up hehehehe.
Milo is sound asleep in floor next to me.  He didn’t
pay Benny no mind LOL.  I think he knew it was way
too early for mom to be home :).  Before Judy headed
out this morning,  I decided to lie back down for a bit
being I hadn’t gotten much sleep due to my freaken
restroom breaks and arthritis.  Milo hopped up in the
bed with me and then shortly thereafter Benny came
looking for a spot beside me LOL.  Judy through them
a kiss goodbye and gave me a kiss and me and the boys
laid there for a little while,  but being that my intestines
were still acting up quite a bit,  I decided to get up and
then they followed.  My intestines and arthritis are two
things that the doctor will not be able to help me with.
Believe me I know LOL.  After 2 decades of having to
deal with the issues,  I have just accepted them as part
of life hehehe.  Of course not the good part,  but part
of it none the less LOL.  Tonight at 8 o’clock I’ve
gotta set the DVR to record North Woods Law.  Judy
should be home soon enough to watch Finding Bigfoot.
It’s not on until 10 o’clock.  I’m pretty sure that we’ve
seen The Hunt for Hogzilla at 9 hehehe.  It’s already
getting dark outside and it’s only 4:15.  The day just
seemed to fly by.  I’m sure that the closer to winter
it gets the lesser of sunlight we’ll be seeing.  That’s
how it is.  Of course it’s nothing like Barrow Alaska
that now only has maybe 3 hours of daylight hehehe.
Fairbanks AK has only 6 hours of daylight right now.
Yeppers,  that would make for a short day and the
days get even shorter.  Alaskan summers might have
near 23 hours of daylight with just a brief encounter
with night hehehe.  That would be hard to get used
to,  but I reckon if I could get used to this weather
up here in Maine, I could get used to Alaska,  but
I would rather NOT hehehe.  LOL,  I had to put up
the fence in our bedroom to keep Benny from going
in the living room and barking at every car that he
heard :).  Him and Milo are both lying down in the
floor beside me now.  It’s looking like we might get
some sleet,  freezing rain and snow tomorrow.  I hope
Judy hasn’t got anywhere she’s gotta go.  The snow
isn’t near as bad as the freezing rain and sleet in my
book.  Milo is snoring away hehehe.  He’s sawing
logs.  If we had a fireplace I’d say Milo,  save a few
logs for the fire LOL.  Fireplaces and mobile homes
don’t work well together hehehe.  My stomach is
starting to talk to me.  Judy and I had breakfast
before she left,  but that has already gone through
my system and exited hehehe.  I might fix me and
the boys something to eat if I get time,  otherwise
I’ll wait until Judy gets home tonight.  In any case
I’ve gotta go to the kitchen and fetch me another
soda water.  I’m back!  Benny is now sleeping on
our bed or he was.  When I came through,  he sat
up and watched me as I went to the kitchen and
back,  then he laid back down.  I gave him a little
pat on the head :).  This household is most surely
held in God’s Hands.  Yes,  sin still functions as it
will,  but we are forgiven through His Son’s Grace.
Ones that think that they never sin are sorely blind,
for even just a mere unclean thought is sin,  but we
are forgiven through Jesus.  LOL I would maybe
already have this all written if I didn’t have to run
to the bathroom ever 15 minutes hehehe.  Here’s
my Christmas wish.   All I want for Christmas is
a colon and some sleep :).  Ok,  so I’d like to have
a little less arthritis too hehehe.  Oh well,  I guess
I’ll settle for some Christmas snow HoHoHo :).
Of course,  since we moved up here,  we have had
a white Christmas every year and often a white
Easter hehehe.  I love snow,  but hate the ice that
follows when it melts and refreezes.  No matter!
I am happy that God has brought Judy and her
family into my life and most grateful for these boys
that God has given us.  I know that,  with God,  all
things are possible.  Judy bought me that plaque
a few years ago and it’s hanging right in between
us.  It’s a good reminder that He is in control and
what seems bad to us,  might just be a lesson to
learn or a way to bring others together.  Our view
on life is very slim,  for we don’t see the whole
picture.  All of my passed struggles have made
me stronger,  for if back then I had to go through
what I am going through today with health issues,
I don’t think I could of handled it.  God will not
allow more than we can handle.  It’s us that puts
our limitations on what we can handle and often
ones will give up.  We see life as a long period
of time,  but to God,  life within our fleshly bodies
is but just a moment.  Heaven is forever.  Now,
I think I have gone and rambled quite enough and
it’s time for me to begin my little quest for a word
or phrase to use as a title for today’s brand new
poem,  so it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection through all that I’ve written here,
in search of a good title from that place that I
always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  Hey,
it looks like I found a good title that I haven’t
already used,  so here goes.

All Things Are Possible

When struggles seem endless
as time moves along
all things are possible
with God dusk to dawn.
When peace is not displayed
and anger is found
all things are possible
with God’s solid ground.
When sickness is upon you
with health wished to find
all things are possible
with a God peace of mind.
When you’re with sadness
of the loss of a life
all things are possible
with God’s shining light.
When someone’s harmed you
and left you in pain
all things are possible
with peace to attain.
When right now shows storm clouds
with lightning and thunder
all things are possible
to fill us with wonder.
When you’re days ended
and you’re needing fresh air
all things are possible
with God through a prayer.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and all as well as
maybe even the poem.  Hopefully my poem made at
least a little sense to you.  I had to stop mid poem
and let Milo outside to go potty and Benny went out
too.  Milo came right back in as always,  but Benny
is still out there exploring LOL.  I guess I will stop
here and go see if Benny is ready to come inside :).
OK,  I’m back and Benny was sitting on the steps
and ready to come in.  Milo came with me to check
on Benny and they joined up and ran side by side
all the way back here through the kitchen and our
bedroom LOL.  They do love each other and look
out for one another.  I just gave them both some
duck jerky.  That’ll tide them over till I can get
this done and feed them.  I had to stop once again
and fill their 4 1/2 gallon water jug hehehehehe.
They have a 2 1/2 gallon water bowl jug in the
bedroom.  but they tend to forget about it until
they are in there sleeping or something LOL :).
Anyways,  they are taken care of now and maybe
just maybe I can get this finished without too
many more interruptions hehehe.  So without
any further ado,  it’s time 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 a little addition hehehehe.  Like
5 more poems.  Hey,  I was in a writing mood.
Anyways,  so I wrote 15 poems this week and
5 of them are Christmas poems.  Yes,  I also
wrote one extra haiku hehehe and so I wrote
23 in all for all of my haiku lovers out there
I hope you can find one or two of either or
both that you like.  Now,  it’s time for me to
begin my search for that not so elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful weekend or at least what’s left of
it and a Blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,  where
is that off switch hiding this week?  LOL
I saw it but it was sort of weird.  It’s hiding
in my glasses case and it looks like it might
of got stuck.  Hehehe next time make sure
that you fit ya silly thing.  Gotcha,  see ya
CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. Two of the poems are written about Judy and I
with one of the two also about Benny and Milo :).
I also wrote one poem just about the boys hehehe.

Now on with the poems and haiku
10+5 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe :)

Books Of Time

Stages set to
pages turned
books of time are
then discerned.
Read as journals
words of time
and some might then
even rhyme.
It’s our books
as worded phrase
that connects
our future days.
Scenes encountered
times expose
might be highs
or maybe lows.
Books of time
might just be seen
as a wishful
moments dream.
Yet some pages
that we read
books of time
might fill our need.
Words from passed days
own design
might show hope
in books of time.

As Snowflakes Fall

While looking outside
I see a whitish color
wintertime’s arrival
as snowflakes will flutter.
Blowing in the breeze
like some little butterflies
as snowflakes fall
from those wintery skies.
Scenes start transposing
as time moves along
and I find myself
singing a little Christmas song.
The joy of the snowflakes
is found Christmastime
within all the blueprints
of its own design.
As snowflakes fall
my heart beats faster
seeking for that moment
that lives forever after.
A Christmas remembrance
that wins over all
is enlightened by the minutes
as snowflakes fall.

A Misty Day

The view is weak
while I seek sight
a misty day
and misty night.
The distant view
seems lesser now
from what surely
mist will allow
The stage is set
with night to come
a misty day
without much sun.
My view outside
is shadows gaze
through the mist
with less sunrays.
The time moves on
as I sit here
a misty day
year after year.
My view gets less
as time moves on
a misty day
seeks newer dawn.
Through the night
the mist will stay
to come again
a misty day.

Four Legged Brothers
(Benny and Milo)

Two dogs as our boys
will play through the night
four legged brothers
that God did unite.
They are our children
with hearts full of love
they’re not the same breed
but they fit like a glove.
Two dogs as our boys
in wintertime’s day
trudge on through the snow
while together they play.
Their ages are distant
with seven years apart
but they act just like brothers
with a similar heart.
Four legged brothers
we will love forever
as we watch them always
playing together.
Even while sleeping
they’re together with love
while we watch smiling
thanking God up above.
Those four legged brothers
of God’s Own design
came to be with us
and surely entwine.
We watch them always
with smiles on our face
four legged brothers
God gave with His Grace.

In My Head

I hear songs
of Christmas time
in my head
that great design.
All those songs
to sing around
heart and soul
from town to town.
In my head
I clearly view
all those songs
we sang so true.
Younger years
with mom and dad,
sister too
and oh so glad.
Us found singing
songs so sweet
Christmastime
was such a treat.
Dad put train tracks
around the tree
and turned the train on
and set it free.
Around and around
it chugged along
while we sang
a Christmas song.
In my head
I still can find
that great feeling
of Christmastime.

A Simple Guess

With right or wrong
and what we’ve had
a simple guess
can turn out bad.
Not first checking
left or right
a simple guess
might dynamite.
Check with others
firstly so
before you let
your guess to blow.
A simple guess
might turn out good,
yes thank God
and knock on wood.
But a guess
so simply made,
might be found
a bad crusade.
So if you’re knowledge
isn’t best,
ask for help,
put guess to rest.

Our Christmas Tree

With lights all glowing
great to see
December brought
our Christmas tree.
That wondrous music
I could hear
around our tree
we sung sincere.
Our Christmas tree
brought smiling faces
way back when
as time embraces.
Hearts all warmed
by Christmastime
our Christmas tree
brought wondrous rhyme.
Songs of beauty
God so sweet
and His Son
with love complete.
Our Christmas tree
gave memories
that are now
as deep blue seas.
Oceans of waves
that I remember
our Christmas tree
each great December.

Point The Way

Lord God Almighty
point the way
show me what to
do and say.
Help me find my
right direction.
Point the way to
my correction.
God I thank You
for Your Hand
always there
to help me stand.
Point the way Lord
where to go,
because Dear Jesus
I don’t know.
I’m a sinner
by and by
for I’m human
life applied.
Help me Jesus
to be strong
and do right
and not so wrong.
Point the way
my Lord above
show me grace
that’s filled with love.

Searching For Peaceful

Often my footsteps
make footprints in place
searching for peaceful
to put on my face.
Searching through minutes
of moments design
to take a glimmer
and make it as mine.
For often peaceful
is not clearly seen
but just some hopeful
that’s found in a dream.
Nobodies peaceful
for all of the time.
There will be moments
as minutes land mine.
So we all search on
sometimes in the dark
trying to find peaceful
that we can embark.
Searching for peaceful
is much easier done
when you have help from
Lord God’s Only Son.
So when your peaceful
has left out the door
look up to Heaven
and pray for some more.

Snow Trodden Footprints

Within my journeys
in the snow
I saw some footprints
where I go.
It seemed those footprints
mimicked mine
step by step
and time to time.
Snow trodden footsteps
clear as day
seemed to go
within my way.
Then I noticed
something strange
all those footprints
didn’t change.
They were my size
sure to fact
and they fit me
so exact.
Then I noticed
something more
things I passed
were same before.
Those were made
by only me
snow trodden footprints
I could see.
Then I looked on
clear in sight
saw where lefts ways
should turn right.
I had gone in
circles true,
but lights to home
were still in view.
I headed for our
front porch light
then by evening
edge of night.
I was tired from
that suspense
that I walked
snow trodden footprints.

Two Souls

With miles found to travel
two souls found a way
to bond them together
and change their display.
They united through poetry
and grew to a shine
that was the beginning
of two souls in time.
Their heartbeats grew stronger
as they journeyed on
from Maine unto Texas
with a new mornings dawn.
The two souls I speak of
are ones that you know,
you and I together
with each day to grow.
We’ve found many patterns
in our lives to change,
but after a long while
they seem not so strange.
You and I together
found two dogs so fine
and they’re as our children
we love all the time.
Two souls were so distant,
but now have earned more
with us all together
seeing what’s now in-store
Those boys are so loving
as we continue to grow
You and I together
with Benny and Milo.

To Judy Pearce
(and Benny and Milo)
From Bill Pearce

Through Poetry

What began through poetry
turned into two hearts
uniting through syllables
as God’s work or art.
Our words found a journey
that neither had known
and then through poetry
new life was grown.
With distance between us
the miles went away
as poetry showed us
a wonderful day.
We found through poetry
two hearts now as one
as God showed us blessings
that came from His Son.
Our love was magnified
as we donned our rings
that then through poetry
had turned amazing.
We’ve spent many years now
with love you and me
that we found so long ago
through poetry.

December Begins

While November shadows
still show on the ground
December is waiting
to surely be found.
Time displays memories
that autumn’s recorded
showing the magic that
time has rewarded.
It’s through the seasons
of time and agin
that we might surely
see snow to transcend.
Then as December begins
and gets on its way
Christmas comes closer
with day after day.
Many decorations
will light up the nights
as December begins with
Christmas delights.
So many are waiting
for snow to fall down
with feelings of Christmas
as it comes to town.
Then as the season
grabs hold with its wins
Christmas comes surely
when December begins.

A Shadow of Christmas

With a shadow of Christmas
ones seek to remember
those special timeframes
found in December.
As the minutes tick faster
they find such a glimpse
with music then playing
a Christmas past tense.
The scenes come alive
as minutes tick faster
with a shadow of Christmas
that many are after.
So many still recall
their yesterdays at glance
with a shadow of Christmas
with its song and dance.
The family togetherness
of so long ago
is a shadow of Christmas
some see in the snow.
Christmas lights all twinkling
as the season comes alive
makes a shadow of Christmas
to always survive.
Many generations
of a Christmastime review
makes a shadow of Christmas
still live in me and you.
Those times we remember
when much younger we were
makes a shadow of Christmas
to once again occur.
Using all those memories
of our lives long ago
makes a shadow of Christmas
much more than shadow.
Becoming as a new day
that allows memories
a shadow of Christmas
can rustle like the leaves.
Coming alive with blessings
and letting it to shine
makes a shadow of Christmas
become more sublime.
So as the seasons move on
and Christmastime is found
let a shadow of Christmas
help the magic come to town.

Lingering Lullabies

Deep in a dream world
of wishes come true
lingering lullabies
will come into view.
Scenes found so magical
as oceans of fishes
come from the lingering
lullabies wishes.
When our reality
is filled with nightmares
lingering lullabies
make chocolate éclairs.
Sweetness of dreamworld
and blessings so fine
lingering lullabies
show their design.
It’s when those lullabies
are journeys complete
that they are lingering
dreamlands of sleep.

Haiku
for Nov 12,  2014

Searching for snowflakes
might give a crick in your neck
due to looking up.

As many gather
the differences might change
as likeness occurs.

Yesterdays turmoil
might repeat many timeframes
if it is ignored.

Little bitty things
in some enormous places
might be important.

Morning brings sunrise
that might be hidden by clouds,
but yet still be there.

Living on the edge
could lead to your destruction,
so back off a bit.

Some sounds in the night
might be mistaken for bad,
when it’s just the wind.

Many people lie
losing sight of what is true
and end up lonely.

Years often pass by
leaving many in the dark
without not a clue.

Meandering thoughts
bring about endless rubbish
unless words make sense.

An early winter
awakens the scenery
filling it with snow.

Letting laziness
to create your excuses
will soon be exposed.

Without exercise
the body’s wither away
making us weaklings.

Being popular
might be good for a moment,
but it can get old.

Lessons from our past
can be teachers for others
to show right from wrong.

Living in a dream
might turn into a nightmare
if you don’t wake up.

Many challenges
come as sticking with the truth
and not a facade.

Life is like a rose
for we must deal with some thorns
to see the beauty.

Focusing on war
dilutes the vision of peace
that needs common ground.

Dominoes await
the constant falling structure
to start their journey.

An ocean breeze dream
comes as a mere memory
from passed days gone by.

Waiting for others
might find you standing in rain
as some don’t hurry.

When our peace is vague
let God help distinguish it
to find the blessings.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been?  This passed week including the week
before has been a bit on the wintery side.  I slipped and fell
on our front steps the week before last and busted my butt
AGAIN.  It had snowed and I was going out to retrieve the
rug that we had put out to dry and it seems that the shoes
that I had on had no traction whatsoever to my surprise and
I went sailing down the steps landing on my buttocks with a
crashing sound which Judy heard from inside hehehe.  She
came to the door with Benny and Milo and said,  “are you
OK”?  I said,  “nope and HELP,  my shoes won’t let me
get any traction and I can’t get back up the steps hehehe”.
I ended up putting my feet into the arm railing brace and
pushing myself up to the doorway and then grabbing the
inside of the door and pulling myself in.  I have a nasty
bruise on my behind that sort of resembles the one that
I got last year from almost the very same epidemic LOL.
I guess I should one day learn that when there is ice or
snow to be seen or known of,  I should where shoes that
I know have traction and not just assume that they do :).
So,  that maybe explains why I didn’t write anything last
week huh hehehe.  It hurt quite a bit to sit down hehehe.
Well,  my butt doesn’t hurt quite as bad this week,  but
it’s still got a big bruise on it as Judy commented on it
last night to the boys LOL.  So,  it’s onto another topic.
The weather is on the chilly side.  It got down to about
28 F degrees last night and right now at 12 PM it’s only
41 F degrees.  Not too bad!  We still have a ton of snow
on the ground,  but much of it has melted away in the
last few days.  I’m sure it will be replenished in the next
week or so hehehe.  Winter has just begun :).  Right now
it looks as though it could rain or snow any moment now,
but it’s not in the weather forecast.  Milo is on our bed
taking a nap and Benny just strolled in here to see me
and has now curled up in a doggie bed on the floor right
beside me.  I guess when I went in there a minute ago
to open the door and take a few pictures,  he figured it
was time to leave his perch on the recliner and come in
here with me.  He wanted to go with Judy this morning,
but he and his brother had to stay home with daddy :).
Judy is doing her Sunday tradition over at her sisters
house taking care of her mom.  The boys have sort of
gotten used to it,  but this passed week Judy has been
having to go over and watch her mom quite a bit being
Dennis and Trudy had doctors appointments to go to
and all.  I’ve scheduled to get the oil changed in our
car this week along with me finally finding a doctor
that will take me as a patient and I have my first visit
this week.  I hope it goes well.  I have a few things that
I’m needing looked at such as this large lump on my
my shoulder and a mole that seems to have gotten a
bit larger on my back.  Oh well,  maybe it’s nothing :)!
So what else is going on around this place?  Hmmmm,
OH Yea,  Judy bought a DVD rack that just came in
the mail the other day and she was putting it together
last night.  It’s strictly a one man/woman job hehehe.
She’s a lot better at doing stuff like that being that
I can’t see very well and my big hands tend to get
in the way all of the time LOL.  Those tiny screws
and nails are hard for someone like me to work with.
Judy’s real good at putting those things together :).
I’m good at keeping our PC’s running and keeping
us and the boys fed hehehehe.  Judy and I do from
time to time switch off on who does dinner and all
and that’s nice.  It still looks wintery cold outside
even though it is only 41 F degrees LOL.  I know,
to many of you out there,  41 F degrees is freaking
cold,  but to us it’s just but the beginning hehehe.
No,  I’m not part Polar Bear hehehe.  I just bundle
up more to stay warm.  Of course in here with the
PC’s and radiator heater it stays nice and toasty.
We’ve had a 100 gallons of heating oil delivered
the other day and our landlord came and put a new
valve on our furnace to get it working again,  so now
I’m not so worried about the water freezing up in the
kitchen and the bathroom in the spare room at the
other end of the house.  Thank God that the gas
and oil prices have gone down.  My sources tell me
that they will continue to go down on into 2015 and
maybe start rising a bit around the middle of the
year,  but who really knows.  My info tells me that
our gas and oil consumption has been less than
they had predicted and they have found other oil to
add to the stock pile which is now fairly large,  so
the prices go down per barrel which in turn brings
gas and oil prices down for us at the pumps.  That
in my book is great.  It sure helps us with our small
budget hehehe.  So that’s my insight on that subject.
What else is there to talk about.  LOL I just went
to the kitchen to get me another Mountain Dew and
Benny followed me and is now parked right in front
of the door once again waiting for his mom to come
home.  I’m sure he’ll end up back in here as the day
moves on.  She won’t be home until late tonight as
usual or as it has been.  She might surprise us and
pull up in the driveway earlier,  but we never know.
Benny will most assuredly let me know when she’s
home hehehe.  There’s no need for the doorbell :).
He’ll be raising a ruckus in there LOL.  Milo will
be found following suit as he sees the reason for
Benny’s yelping LOL.  Hey, I’m seeing a few small
breaks in the clouds.  Yes,  blue skies do exist LOL.
The old sun is even peeking out a bit,  but it’s gone
now.  Oh well,  it was short but sweet hehehe.  It’s
supposed to get down to 24 F degrees by Monday
morning.  The sun has poked its head out again and
I got a few pictures of it.  When I opened the door to
take pictures,  Benny let me know that he wanted to
go outside for a bit,  so I let him.  I’ll check on him
in a bit.  Milo is still fast asleep on our bed.  More
to the point he’s on my side of the bed hehehe.  Oh
well,  I’m not using it at the moment LOL.  I hear
snoring coming from in there hehehe.  He’s sawing
logs.  Oh yea,  Milo turned 10 years old on Oct 31
Halloween :).  He’s an old codger like me hehehe.
In dog years,  he’s maybe 54 years old which is
just 4 years younger than me LOL.  He still likes
me to play with him and Benny can still every once
in a while coax him into playing chase hehehehe.
They might not be related blood wise,  but they do
act like brothers.  They look out for one another.
My stomach is growling at me.  It might be near
time for me to fix me and the boys something to eat.
I might fix us some eggs and bacon,  but who knows.
It’s not like they’re starving.  They have a pan of
dried dog food in the floor if they are feeling the
munchies hehehe.  Milo had to go to the bathroom
and so I let him out and Benny passed Milo as he
ran back inside hehehehe.  Milo of course did his
thing and was back up the steps ready to go back in.
Benny tried to block him from coming inside and
Milo pushed through him just like always and they
began their little side by side race on through the
kitchen and into here :).  Milo is in a doggie bad
in the floor beside me and after checking,  Benny
is on our bed now.  Of course Milo hopped up the
minute I got up to look and now they’re both on
our bed making themselves comfortable hehehe.
They are a mess hehehehe.  It has gotten up to
43 F degrees now,  but I think that’s as high as
it’s gonna get today.  Winter has pushed autumn
out of the way and moved in for the kill hehehe.
I wonder how much snow we will get this winter
as well as how low the temperatures will go LOL.
I guess it doesn’t really matter.  We will have to
deal with whatever comes our way,  just as you
will have to deal with whatever comes your way.
Some states have typhoons,  tropical storms and
hurricanes and some have tornadoes,  while some
have fires,  landslides and Earthquakes and there
are some states with droughts and fires.  I’m sure
there are many other things that I cannot think
of,  but ya see my point.  We have cold winters
and a lot of snow.  We deal with it as best that we
can.  There’s no place that’s perfect which brings
me to this question.  Why do they call Florida
the sunshine state?  It has more hurricanes and
rain than any state according to what I see on
the weather channel LOL.  They should call it
the rainy state and I’m beginning to think they
need to start calling Maine,  Little Alaska LOL.
None the less,  I thank God for all of the beauty
that comes before my eyes.  The seasons shake
their magic wands over the lands and demonstrate
God’s mighty artwork.  Each day is a mystery as
pages unfold.  It’s God’s book with pictures to
explore.  I love to head out with camera in hand
and attempt to capture the paintings before my
eyes.  I know my photos will never come close
to what God displays in a moment,  but I still
try.  God’s had before the beginning of time to
get His artwork perfected and He shows that to
me every day.  Thank you God for all that You
do and all that You will do,  for I know, You know
best.  Now I believe it’s time for me to take my
little journey back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s brand new
poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a decent title just a bit
back on what I wrote,  so let’s see what I can
do with it.  Here goes!

Pictures To Explore

The wonders of the world
are there to see
pictures to explore
that God gave for free.
The magical places
where colors reside
pictures to explore
that can’t be denied.
The seasons come shining
their own little way
pictures to explore
in our day to day.
With each and every page
in the essence of time
pictures to explore
God displays so fine.
The wonders of the world
are found put in place
pictures to explore
decorated with grace.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling.  Sorry I was gone last week,
but that might happen from time to time,  being the fact that
I’m human and do get sick,  tired,  etc, etc.  Hopefully I have
many more years to write,  but if not,  then so be it.  I hope
and pray that something I have written helps you with your
daily struggles.   The boys are sound asleep or at least Milo
is hehehe.  When I peeked in on them,  Benny raised his head
up and looked at me.  Milo’s sawing logs LOL.  He’s our little
lumberjack hehehe.  I bet he cuts up at least a cord or two in
his dreams LOL.  None the less,  they are our lil boys and we
love them dearly :).  We thank God for them every day.  Yes,
they do get on our nerves from time to time,  but for the most
part I couldn’t imagine life without their little toothy grins hehe.
I know dogs lifespans are much shorter than ours,  but I thank
God for the time that we have with them.  They show the truth
of forgiveness.  They love us unconditionally.  Is that something
that you can honestly say that you do?  I think not!  We all have
our conditions whether we’re aware of them or want to admit
them or not.  As humans,  we tend to expect love in return and
when it doesn’t happen,  we walk on.  If we’ve been spanked
for something we’ve done,  we’re not quick to let it go,  but a
dog will.  Here’s a silly little analogy and that’s all it is,  so do
not do this,  I repeat,  DO NOT DO THIS.  (If you locked your
spouse and your dog in the trunk of your car,  which do you think
would be happy and forgiving?  The dog of course!  Your spouse
might have ideas of payback LOL.)  Anyways,  DON’T DO IT!
Ok so 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.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with 3 of them being sort of
Christmassy.  Also once again I wrote 22 more haiku for all of
my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you find something from
either or both that you like.  Now it’s time for me to begin my
search for that not so elusive off switch,  but not before I wish
you a wonderful weekend and God filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  So now,  where is that dad gum
off switch hiding this week.  It’s had an extra week to find it
a decent hiding place.  BUT,  as I can see now very clearly,
it didn’t use that time for nothing but to freaken sleep and why
do you think that I think that,  you ask?  It’s sleeping on my
ESC button right here in plain sight.  Wake up you silly thing.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Looking Off

When out searching
sought within
things might seem
to just begin.
Doorways open
day and night
some as wrong
and some as right.
Looking off though
might perceive
sights we find
that cause to grieve.
Wanting others
lives we’ve found
to be ours
next time around.
Yet when faced
with all they’ve got
looking off
might be Hell bought.
Let your wanting
daily stride
live and breathe
with good inside.
Looking off
will maybe show
others lives
that you don’t know.
For their hearts
and days desires
might just be
some Hellish fires.
Hidden from
the world to see
looking off
is all they’ll be.

Useless Waiting

Hours and days
that minutes tick on
useless ones wait
from dusk until dawn.
Waiting impatiently
uselessly so
as time might seem
to them way too slow.
Useless waiting
can become
time constrained
what could be done.
Don’t just sit
and wait around
seen so useless
daily found.
Use the time
that God gave you
to find you something
good to do.

The Snow That Fell

With winters winds
comes other sights
what’s blown in
the days and nights.
So many scenes
that come alive
with winters winds
and chilling drive.
Some flakes of white
might fall to find
echoes of
sweet Christmastime.
The snow that fell
might then be seen
as a moments
Christmas dream.
With blissful thoughts
alive and well
Christmas finds
the snow that fell.

The Sway

Mind over matter
as time is perceived
some find the sway
from what they’ve believed.
Challenging moments
might come into play
when many gather
to just do the sway.
Without first learning
how things might just be
some do the sway
a bit out of key.
Lessons from others
that stumble around
might find the sway
with only a frown.
The sway of life
is only true blue
if what you show
is living in you.
Let God to Help you
find who you are
and then be the sway
of God’s shining star.

Left Is Right

When our journeys
find an end
there’s a new one
around the bend.
Left is right ways
journeys time
with some footsteps
found in line.
Right might find a
wrongful sight
and left might be
what’s really right.
It’s the timeframes
that we see
those directions
found to be.
Right might be the
way to go,
but left might be the
better flow.
Sometimes our own
narrow sight
does not see that
left is right.

November Snow

So early this season
the snow surely fell
finding perceptions
of winters detail.
November snow
with a wonderful hue
white snow now glitters
a skyline of blue.
Yet the clouds above
surely now only show
the sight of more falling
of November snow.
The weather’s now colder
as winter is found
early this year now
with snow on the ground.
November snow
in a midseason sight
shows me so awesome
the color of white.

Lights of Christmas

With the twinkling lights
of Decembers hues
the lights of Christmas
display the news.
Christmassy scenery
set all aglow
sometimes amidst
some fresh fallen snow.
The lights of Christmas
with jingling bells
and Christmas songs
the season foretells.
The lights all glittering
glowing all night
display the beauty
of Christmas delight.
Stories of Santa
and his Christmas sleigh
flying in the sky
a magical way.
With the lights of Christmas
all guiding his flight
he makes his journey
on Christmas eve night.
Then you might hear
a jingling sound
bells on his reindeer
when he comes to town.

Sunshine On Snow

Reflections of sunshine
on a snow covered ground
can be so blinding
you can’t look around.
The sunshine on snow
reflects oh so bright
even in the darkness
with only moonlight.
The beauty is endless
as snow covers all
after the season
of leaves colored fall.
God gives this beauty
for us to partake
the sunshine on snow
in a billowy wake.
Snow drifts of blessings
from here to afar
becomes a picture
of God’s shining star.
Sunshine on snow
is a wonderful view
as it’s reflecting
a magical hue.

Christmas Reason

Thoughts of Jesus
come to mind
when I think of
Christmastime.
Christmas reason
falls in place
when we find we’re
saved by grace.
Winters doorways
open wide
letting Christmas
come inside.
Bringing blessings
from The Son
Christmas reason
has begun.
With each heartbeat
you and I
Christmas reason
tells us why.
Love and passion
is so true
given free
to me and you..
Find the blessings
of this season
found within
the Christmas reason.

The Ocean of Mind

As waves of emotion
with sands giving way
the ocean of mind
has so much to say.
Yet many people
hold waves deep inside
their ocean of mind
so painful applied.
Each with a rhythm
of rolling amount
holding in every
moments account.
The ocean of mind
has depths so to say
sometimes beneath
each hearts crashing wave.
Don’t let the ocean
of mind to drowned you.
Look for the answers
through God oh so true.
You’ll see the journey
as waves come ashore
when the ocean of mind
finds answers to soar.

Haiku
for Nov 8,  2014

As we may daydream
some realities might shone
and make us depressed.

Today displays time
in a mysterious way
that we might not see.

Too many choices
can create many problems,
so keep it simple.

When tumbleweeds blow
they often become larger
as they might unite.

Allowing bad thoughts
can cause an intense landslide
as troubles rush in.

Looking in mirrors
does not always show the truth
of what’s deep inside.

With just but a breath
God put life inside our hearts
and gave us free will.

When looking outwards
our inwards sights get clouded
and we lose ourselves.

Emotions of rain
give a last minute rainbow
as a smile from God.

As fall says farewell
we find winter winds blowing
bringing us some snow.

Tree limbs with snowflakes
become artwork of winter
as more snow gathers.

With a simple choice
your life can be good or bad,
so use common sense.

As today finds end
it leaves shadows of itself
found within our minds.

When a page is turned
it might find redundancy
later in the book.

Searching for snowflakes
finds me staring at the stars
in the dark of night.

Within our worries
holds the choice for acceptance
to God’s Will be done.

When found in pity
look around you at others
and see how they smile.

Sometimes a problem
is but only a molehill
and not a mountain.

What might seem as bad
could turn out to be the best
hidden in the rough.

Looks of a liar
are often within their eyes
as they drift about.

A journey of words
begins with some syllables
and some emotion.

There are many clowns
with their smiles just painted on
hiding every frown.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been?  We’ve been doing pretty well as we
watch wintertime come closer by the day.  Yep,  it’s pretty
close now at least it is up this way.  I took the boys out for
a little walk in the field just a little while ago and it is most
surely looking like winter.  Not quite cold enough for it yet,
but it’s on its way.  My weather program says that there’s
a little bit of a chance for snow showers this coming Friday
through Sunday.  Personally,  I don’t see it happening,  but
it might surprise me.  It wouldn’t be the first time LOL.  If
it does,  it most surely won’t stick,  because the weather’s
still too warm.  Yes we have a few freezing temps through
the nights,  but it has to stay cold long enough for the old
ground to get cold enough to let the snow stick.  I’m sure
it will start snowing and doing its thing soon enough LOL.
Oh yea,  along with Friday being Halloween it’s also Milo’s
birthday.  He will be 10 years old.  Benny turned 3 back in
July of this year.  There’s 7 years difference in their ages,
plus they are different breeds and all,  but they act just like
brothers hehehe.  If Milo thinks Benny has been outside
too long,  he will start barking at us and nudging us to go
and let him in.  Benny’s a little explorer and he loves to go
outside and run around the house,  but when it’s raining,
he prefers to stay inside.  He hates the rain,  but he adores
the snow.  So,  he will hold his bladder as long as he can
before he will give in and ask to go outside in the rain to
empty it LOL ;).  Milo doesn’t care one way or the other
about snow or rain.  When he’s gotta go,  he’s gotta go
and it don’t matter if it’s raining or snowing,  he wants
out,  but he makes it quick and runs back up to the door
and barks saying “I’m done” and we let him back inside.
Milo is my little shadow on Sundays when Judy is gone
to her sisters house to take care of her mom.  Benny
just holds up in the living room on his favorite recliner
until Judy comes home,  or until he hears me opening
a can of dog food LOL.  Milo follows me all around
the house.  If I go to the bathroom,  he will be sitting
right in front of the door waiting for me to come out :).
Benny does the same when Judy’s home hehehehe.
Actually they do it to the both of us.  Our little shadows
with four legs.  It’s not raining at the moment,  but it
sure looks like it could any time now.  So,  what else is
there to yammer about :)?  Our neighbor came and
borrowed some cooking oil the other day and yesterday
they came and gave us some fresh banana bread that
his wife/girlfriend made.  It was real good too.  Judy
and I had it for a late night snack and then the last of
it for breakfast hehehe.  OK,  so now I’m out of soda
water.  I’ve gotta head to the kitchen and get another
Mountain Dew :).  I’m back!  I saw that Benny had
left his perch in the living room and is now lying on our
bed.  I petted him for a moment and he rolled over on
his back wanting me to rub his tummy hehehe.  He is
so silly.  Anyways,  onwards with my rambling.  Oh yea,
here lately,  the Dish Network has removed some of
our favorite channels due to a price war with Turner
Broadcasting.  So now we don’t have Boomerang or
the Cartoon Network dag blast it.  Oh well,  I guess
we will survive hehehe.  They also removed TruTV,
but it’s supposed to be temporary just as the cartoons
were supposed to be,  so we will see.  Anyways,  that’s
a petty problem.  It’s not like there’s nothing else to
watch hehehe.  We had just gotten into the habit of
watching cartoons when we went to bed.  Our favorite
was the Loony Tunes LOL.  Well,  what else is going
on around this place?  To be honest,  it’s been pretty
quiet around here and with all of the rain this passed
week we weren’t able to take to boys for a walk in
the field and Judy and I have been taking advantage of
our treadmill.  Benny has been getting curious about
the treadmill and even gotten on it a time or two,  but
we haven’t yet turned it on so he could try it out LOL.
I might do that soon,  but Milo is scared of the vacuum
cleaner,  so he doesn’t come near the treadmill when
it’s on hehehe.  In any sense,  I’ll manage to get them
a work out one way or another :).  I guess when it snows
I’ll have to start digging trails for them again hehehe.
I might try to dig longer trails than I’ve done in the
past though so they can really get some walking done.
It gives me a work out just digging the trails.  Often
I have to make tons of trips outside,  before I get
the trails laid out.  My old body won’t let me do too
much anymore,  but I’ll do what I can.  I love those
little boys and want to keep them healthy and happy.
My moms arm is still giving her trouble after she
broke a few weeks ago.  Hopefully it finally heals
and eases up with the pain.  The doctor said it was
healed,  but the other day she moved her wrist and
she said it popped and has hurt ever since.  I hope
your arm gets better real soon mom.  I’ll be praying
for you as always :).  Love ya bunches.  Now what
else is there to yammer about hehehe?  Well it looks
like that’s about it.  God has kept His mighty Hands
over us protecting us as always.  He has always been
there for me,  whether I knew it or not.  He allows
what He knows that I need to go through,  to get me
where I need to be,  but He has been known to put
a road block in front of some areas that He knows
I cannot handle.  I might have wanted it or that in
that moment so much that I could taste it,  but He
knew it was not for me.  I know we have loved ones
that leave us (in our eyes) way too soon as they find
Heavens doors.  But it is their time whether we think
it is or not.  God knows best.  He deals with all life
and death as it is supposed to happen.  Yet,  if we
look at the bright side,  we can find ourselves seeing
them again when our time comes.  That is what that
keeps me sane.  Peace overcomes me when I feel
my friends and family’s spirits all around me smiling
that have gone on before me.  I can often feel my
daddy’s hand on my shoulder while I’m writing my
journal.  He always used to call them my sermons :)
and he would take them with him to church to use
to teach.  Thank You God for all that You have done
and all that You will do for the greater of mankind.
Now I believe I have finished rambling and it’s now
time for me to begin my search back through all that
I’ve written here to see if I can find a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title for today’s brand
new poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I stumbled upon a decent title and
after checking I see that I haven’t used it as of yet,
but it’s gonna get used today LOL.  Here goes.

Peace Overcomes Me

When cloudy skies come
with raindrops that fall
peace overcomes me
with love overall.
I might be saddened
with times passing days,
but I find peaceful
that comes from the grays.
Often those storm clouds
that bring us the rain
also show rainbows
through our windowpane.
Peace overcomes me
with seasons in a sight
bringing their patterns
when it’s surely right.
Springtime’s arrival
brings sights I can see
with flowers blooming,
peace overcomes me.
Then as the seasons
will change colors sight
autumn comes sharing
its moments so bright.
Soon after autumn
the cold winds will blow
bringing us winter
with white fallen snow.
Peace overcomes me
when those seasons come
sent down from Heaven
and Jesus God’s Son.

There ya go.  I hope you enjoyed the poem and maybe
even my rambling hehehe.  It’s 5:30 in the evening and
48 F degrees.  It’s supposed to get down to the mid to
upper 30’s by morning.  Not too bad huh :)!  I just went
in to check on Benny and it looks like he has taken over
my side of the bed LOL.  Oh well,  I’m not using it LOL.
I suspect that Judy won’t be home until late tonight as
usual.  I hope she stops and gets us something to eat
like hamburgers or whatever hehehe,  but if she doesn’t
I’m sure we will find something to eat :).  Milo had a fly
bugging him a little bit ago,  but I think it’s finally moved
on hehehe.  I’m surprised to see a fly being it’s been a
bit on the cool side lately,  but it seems we have some
diehards LOL.  Judy and I have got to go and put their
pool,  doghouse and our picnic table back under wrap
sometime this week.  They can’t stay where they are,
or the snowplow will make quick work of them hehehe.
The snowy season is just around the corner.  Ok,  so
I guess it’s time for me to put the brakes on before I
end up in Rambles Ville again :).  It’s time for me to tell
you what  tell you almost every week and that is, I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems
with 2 of them being sort of Christmassy,  but one of
the Christmas poems is about the boys and there’s one
none Christmas poem about the boys as well.  I also
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.
I hope you find one or two of either or both that you
like.  Now,  I believe it’s time for me to be searching
for that not so elusive off switch,  but not before I wish
you a most wonderful weekend or at least what’s left of
it and a blessings filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Ok,  where are ya hiding this week?
For a little off switch,  you sure have trouble hiding your
tiny self LOL.  For Heaven’s sake,  I can see you as
plain as day.  Trying to hide behind my keyboard might
work better if you were lying down and not standing up.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

As Storms Arrive

When stormy skies
come crashing through
seek for peace in
a hidden view.
Often blue skies
come to be found
when you seek Jesus
and His solid ground.
Sometimes emotions
are shaken and stirred
as storms arrive
with moments absurd.
Yet with Lord Jesus
those storms will fade
into a rainbow
so Heavenly laid.
So when some troubles
come alive
let Jesus help you
as storms arrive.

Santa Paws

Winter comes briskly
with scenes we can see
such as old Santa’s
beard white as can be.
Dreams of the children
found deep in the night
take off and fly with
a Christmassy flight.
Santa might bring his
dogs in his sleigh
to keep him company
a Christmassy way.
Then on the rooftops
with old Santa Claus
you might then also
see small Santa paws.
Little tiny footprints
from his little boys
four legged Santa’s
with small bags of toys.
Santa’s little helpers
you might surely hear
barking in the night
this Christmassy year.
Then as old Santa
is ready to leave
him and his doggies
are seen Christmas eve.
With a loud Merry Christmas
from old Santa Clause
and a few little barks
from his Santa paws.

Losing Sight

Mornings come
with hopeful dreams
found as sometimes
rushing streams.
Then some ripples
bring a fright
that might cause our
losing sight.
New days journeys
come to be
with each morning
that we see.
Sometimes choices
that we make
bring the problems
we partake.
Yet it might be
written so
that it’s time
for you to go.
The fact so surely
wrong or right
many find they’re
losing sight.
Not seeing truly
what’s to be,
but just dreaming
what to see.
Losing sight of
what that’s real,
might explode to
what you feel.

After We’re Gone

So many people
will surely deny
that they are harmful
to their by and by.
They don’t realize
how they are seen
when they’re gone
not so pristine.
After we’re gone
our shadows show
what we did then
to and fro.
The essence of
our dusk to dawn
might show truly
after we’re gone.
The pages we made
within our looks
might be exposed
within our books.
The written segues
that we said
might become
our days of dread.
After we’re gone
with not a sight
we will learn
our wrong and right.
Don’t live empty
lives insane.
Seek for Heaven
to attain.
Let our pathways
dusk to dawn
show of Jesus
after we’re gone.

Winter White

As Christmas comes
into our sight
we might see
some winter white.
Snow that’s falling
from the skies
making views
before our eyes.
That winter white
of Christmastime
makes a seasonal
great design.
Billows of snow
seen far and wide
as we stand
and look outside.
Watching snowflakes
Christmassy fall
landing on trees
so evergreen tall.
Glistening surely
within the sun
that winter white
is Christmassy fun.
Many found sleighing
down some hills
or tossing snowballs
of winter thrills.
That winter white
so Christmassy so
helps me to find
that Christmastime glow.
With just a snowflake
falling to Earth
I am reminded
of Jesus Christ’s birth.
He washes my sins
away with a smile
in a winter white
seemingly style.
So as I’m watching
snowflakes that fall
I can see Jesus
standing so tall.
Found as a flavor
each day and night
I dream of Christmas
found so winter white.

Inside Looking Out

So many people
are empty inside
while looking outside
and trying to hide.
Found deep within them
their emptiness grows,
but on the outside
the lie only shows.
We might be looking
at just but a shell,
not seeing inside
what is not so well.
Yet as that person
walks daily through time
they might then one day
seem not so sublime.
Inside looking out
with their own two eyes
might just be hiding
some real cloudy skies.
So are you someone
that looks all about
with that of sadness
inside looking out?
Don’t let your ego
to torment you so
while hiding something
that ones need to know
Tell someone truly
what goes on inside
and you might find you
with much less to hide.
Inside looking out
might find you a smile
that being truthful
will help all the while.

God Finds A Way

When we are weary
and need a hand
God finds a way
to help us withstand.
When there are problems
that seem as to grow
God finds a way
to make peace bestow.
If our ship’s sinking
with waves crashing in
God finds a way
to make peace begin.
When you are lonely
and needing someone
God finds a way
through Jesus His Son.
When the days burdens
have caught up to you
God finds a way
to help with your view.
When you are empty
with no love inside
God finds a way
to show love applied.
It just takes a little
of your own to find
peace in a moment
of your time to time.
God finds a way
to help you and I,
but it take us to
let God apply.

Four Pawed Boys

Our two boys
of barking styles
are with toothy
little smiles.
Four pawed boys
of days delight
keep on going
through the night.
They’re our boys
with a lot of hair
bouncing around
without a care.
Four pawed boys
so filled with love
that were gifts
from God above.
Benny and Milo
are their names
and they love to
play their games.
Playing chase
inside and out,
but we love
without a doubt.
They’re a boys
we love them so
in the rain
and in the snow.
Benny loves to
hide from me
in the snow
so I can’t see.
His big brother’s
not the same,
he doesn’t care for
snow or rain.
Though he’ll sometimes
decide to go
out with Benny
in the snow.
Four pawed boys
with love divine
fill our home with
peace sublime.

The Passing Days

While walking onwards
in our will and ways
ones find our footprints
in the passing days.
One step then the other
is made in our stride
leaving some footprints
we might wish to hide.
In the passing days
we might find constructed
what’s with our meanings
of timeframes obstructed.
Sometimes our footprints
will not show so well,
as all our meanings
get portrayed in Hell.
Yet if your intentions
are pure and of good
God will make sure that
ones see what they should.
Don’t be deceived by
some ill witted ways.
Let God show His glory
within the passing days.

Rivers To Nowhere

River rocks smoothing
as waters will flow
leading to somewhere
or where all they go.
Some are misleading
with journeys in sand
rivers to nowhere
with no place to stand.
Often those rivers
will just turn around
heading right back to
some dry solid ground.
Yet there are rivers
that circle their view
not headed nowhere
but then thereunto.
Rivers to nowhere
are journeys we find
headed to somewhere
with nowheres design.
Some so misleading
as doorways to fame
rivers to nowhere
with nothing to gain.

Haiku
for Oct 25,  2014

Life has surprises
that come when least expected
sometimes not wanted.

As today finds end
there are things we may ponder
such as how we did.

Love has a few names
such as infatuation
that will fade away.

On an uphill stride
you might find yourself weakened,
but downhill will come.

Slip and slide ventures
could end in a sticker yard
with bad memories.

With many counting
the numbers might not add up
due to ignorance.

As the moon comes out
it shines as a reflector
of what the sun has.

Misinterpreted
is a story wrongly read
while skipping pages.

Belief in spirits
gives us power to believe
in Heaven above.

God shows us mercy
as we often make mistakes
due to humanity.

Some are filled with lies
as they attempt to show proof
of what they have done.

Marking a milestone
gives a starting place in time
to learn something more.

When just sat idle
the world still continues on,
but without your style.

Autumns leave will fall
as the weather turns colder
and wintertime shines.

Finding a snowflake
that looks the same as others
will keep you busy.

As nightfall turns dark
the scenes in sky start changing
with moonlight and stars.

With a little breeze
all the trees begin to sway
with dancing branches.

The windows of chill
come as wintertime’s story
that ones read with snow.

Having a hardship
that you cannot ever change
can make you stronger.

Money causes problems
when it’s put before your needs
and value is looks.

Life can be crazy
with some mirrors reflecting
what might be facade.

Beyond our eyesight
holds many things important,
such as air we breathe.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I had another few days not so feeling well and therefore
I didn’t write my poems and haiku until Sunday and so
I didn’t get started on my journal until right about now
which is a little after 3 AM Monday morning LOL.  Oh
well.  Life goes on.  Judy didn’t have to go to her sisters
house Sunday so we just made a lazy day of it.  I’m not
feeling much better,  but I will live,  I think :).  Anyways,
it was a rather peaceful day around here Sunday. We
did manage to take the boys for a little walk in the field
so that they could run around a bit.  It helps to loosen
up Milo’s bowels.  Benny just had fun running around
as he always does.  I wish I had just a 10th of the energy
that Benny has LOL.  Oh well,  I’m happy that I’m able
to take care of them.  Judy and I spoil them both quite
a bit hehehe.  I have a doctors appointment early next
month.  Hopefully he can help me to get feeling better.
Anyways,  on with the journal.  The weather has been
going back and forth lately with the temperatures.  By
morning it’s supposed to be 30 F degrees.  Right now
at 3:46 AM it’s 37 F degrees.  Milo is in the bedroom
with Judy sleeping in a doggy bed.  Benny is in here
with me sleeping in a doggy bed.  I’m just waiting for
Benny to wake up and start scratching at the door to
go in there with Milo hehehe,  but so far,  he’s sound
asleep.  He’s opened his eyes a few times and peeked
at me,  but then gone right back to sleep.  I bought Judy
a new external hard drive so she could move all of her
pictures and stuff over to it and I could copy all of my
pictures over to it so she could use them.  Her PC was
becoming sluggish being she only had about a gig of
free space left on it hehehe.  It’s running much better
now with almost 30 gig free.  Her PC only has a 70
gig hard drive.  Anyways,  she now has a large 500 gig
external hard drive like mine.  Boy,  the days are sure
getting short.  It seems that the day is gone before it
even begins LOL.  Yeppers the closer to wintertime
the shorter the days will be.  Being honest,  I’m kind
of excited for the sight of the first good snow.  Even
Judy said she loves to watch it snow and see all of the
scenes come alive with glittery affects on the trees.
We both love taking pictures hehehe as if ya didn’t
know LOL.  All though I do believe that I might take
just a few more pictures than she does hehehe.  It’s
in my blood.  Yet,  we both love reminiscing through
our photos of now and then.  Benny is on his back now
with his legs spread eagle LOL.  That’s how he gets
when he is relaxed and in a deep sleep.  We love our
little boys hehehe.  So off of that subject,  how are you
doing?  We’ve been keeping tabs on the Ebola crisis
and it’s worrying us.  Judy has told my daughter that
her and Sami are welcomed up here if it gets too bad.
I hope and pray that they finally get that crisis under
control.  I think my mom and sister know that they’re
welcomed up here :).  We haven’t got a lot,  but we
will do what we must do.  Although,  we haven’t heard
of anymore Ebola cases in the last few days.  They’ve
had a few scares,  but they came out clean.  We are
definitely staying in prayer about it and the Isis battle.
Remember,  God is in control and things will work out
the way that they are supposed to whether we like it
or not.  God sees the full picture,  but we only see a
portion of it.  I guess it’s time for me to be searching
for a word or phrase through all that I’ve written here
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
may have found a good title and now after checking I
see that it hasn’t been used yet,  so here we go LOL.
It’s being used today :).

Taking Pictures

Scenes transcending
into views
taking pictures
win or lose.
Some days folded
into play
become pictures
day by day.
With the seasons
changing scenes
we get colors
white to green.
Taking pictures
becomes found
with us walking
all around.
God gives blessings
pictures sights
in the days
and also nights.
With those blessings
comes a view
taking pictures
how we do.
So with pictures
we recall
winter, spring
and summer, fall.
Then we find our
reason why
taking pictures
by and by.

:) I know,  it’s corny,  but it’s what that came to mind
and I always write the first thing I think of hehehehe.
Anyways,  if you want more poems to read,  I’m sure
you’ll find more at the end of my rambling :) and yes
of course,  I wrote 10 more poems with 1 of them being
sort of Christmassy.  I also 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.  So,  now I think
it’s time for me to be searching for that not so elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most wonderful
God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now where is that off switch hiding this week?
OK already,  I can see ya pretty clearly hiding under
my 9 volt battery pack.  It’s not lying quite as flat as
it would be without you under it ya silly thing hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzz literally zzzzzzzzzz :).

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

South Winds Blow

Through the daylight
south winds blow
here and there
the way they go.
The winds directions
blow so strong
day to day
with dusk to dawn.
The south winds blow
with churning times
bringing in
some great designs.
Painted pathways
here and there
south winds blow
a wondrous flair.
Throughout time
the south winds blow
then with winter
in comes snow.
Northern winds blow
bringing change
as the seasons
rearrange.
South winds blow then
surely so
flakes of white with
northern snow.

Those Autumn Leaves

When autumn arrives
it brings many views
red,  yellow,  greens
with browns and some blues.
Those autumn leaves
display such a sight
that which is seen
from daylight to night.
Painted emotions
of autumns displays
journey as artists
with brushstrokes of days.
God takes those colors
and spreads them around
when after it’s over
they fall to the ground.
Yet those autumn leaves
still paint where they lay
brush stokes of wonders
with day after day.

Sights To See

Seasons come with
sights to see
some with raindrops
given free.
Then some sights are
displayed dry
with a few clouds
in the sky.
Some of the sights
are just found
with some snowflakes
blown around.
Yet some people
to and fro
are just searching
blindly so.
Not perceiving
God’s delight
found within each
day and night.
Not allowing
what could be
as the best of
sights to see.

Younger Years

When I was younger
I thought I had time
for many pathways
of better to find,
but found mistaken
I surely was seen
living a nightmare
not that of a dream.
Those days long ago
were self will run wild
with my younger years
and me as a child.
I did though have fun
when I allowed it so,
but it soon darkened
the places I’d go.
Now as a grown up
I understand more
how my younger years
got through the door.
I became stubborn
with my own desires
that as time went on
it lit many fires.
My younger years
give lessons today
with how that Lord Jesus
would never walk away.
He was there with me
as I messed around
but He knew lessons
would surely be found.

Time Flies By

As many moments
become just a thought
our time flies by
a little a lot.
Time becomes hurried,
but yet we don’t see
the echoes of then
in our history.
Yes, time flies by
with pages not read
due to us thinking
we’ll see it instead.
Yet when a moment
comes before you,
you find that you don’t
know what you’re to do.
Our time flies by
as seasonal suns
ricocheting off of
unloaded guns.
Yes,  time flies by
with thinking not found
and then when in need
you’re just looking down.
It’s with conclusions
of using time good
that we will find out
what that we should.

That Special Joy

Those days of Christmas
from so long ago
are now that special
joy that I know.
All those emotions
of Christmastimes flair
help me to now days
see joy in the air.
That special joy that
Christmas shows true
can help you find then
that light within you.
Sometimes a memory,
sometimes a thought
will make you saddened
a little a lot.
Yet,  if you look now
for that special joy
you might just find you
some good to enjoy.
A snowflake from Heaven
or a glistening tree
which that special joy
was given for free.
A little child smiling
or a pet dog or cat
could break that wall
of the sadness you’re at.
You might then surely
see goodness deploy
as you find God through
that special joy.

Looks Of The Clouds

There up above me
I saw in the sky
clouds floating peacefully
as they went by.
They seemed to transform
into so many things.
The looks of the clouds
were fast running streams.
They formed some places
as mountains so high
there up above me
I saw in the sky.
I watched for a while
and saw them transform
into what looked like
a baby newborn.
The looks of the clouds
can sometimes become
that of a band
with a big old bass drum..
The scene’s always changing
as time moves along
with the looks of the clouds
until they are gone.

Moonlight’s Dance

As nighttime unveils
the stars in the sky
the moonlight displays
its dance by and by.
The moonlight’s dance
is found in the stars
also with sometimes
Venus and Mars.
The moon creates sights
as shadows of trees
sometimes highlighted
with oceans and seas.
Sometimes its dancing
is not seen so large
because of some clouds
that seem to take charge,
but moonlight’s dance
is still there to view
when all the clouds
allow it on through.

Looking Slow

Not looking quickly
at fast moving times
can find you standing
on many land mines.
If looking slowly
is your only view
then you might need one
much better than you.
Let someone help you
in fast moving styles
and you might find you’re
much better the miles.
Of course looking slowly
is sometimes the way,
for you might better
see what’s on display.
But if you find fast times
that you do not know,
let Jesus help you
when you’re looking slow.

Rippling Stream

A memorized moment
that drifts in my dream
is sometimes wondrous
as a rippling stream.
With waters flowing
in dream towns delight
the rippling streams are
found within sight.
Scenes found with colors
of fall colored minds
are then so rippling
as stream found designs.
Clear waters flowing
as a memorized view
then finds the rivers
as Heaven’s of blue.
With every flavor
of a momentous dream
there are the chances
for a rippling stream.

Haiku
for Oct 19,  2014

With just a moment
a life can be rearranged
for something better.

As seasons will change
the days look differently
with similar views.

Yes is mistaken
when no is the true meaning
while many will lie.

Looks of a flower
will change with each days weather
as minutes evolve.

Without a heartbeat
true love cannot assemble
into two heartbeats

Beyond what we see
are our inner emotions
filling up the void.

Yesterdays mistakes
will become todays lessons
if we’ll allow them.

Forgetting yourself
will leave you at lonely street
with others around.

Pointing at others
makes others aware of you
such as pointing back.

Living within fear
will maybe just hold you back
and prevent your growth.

Leftover heartaches
can become too much baggage
if you allow it.

Someone that’s smiling
can be as a battery
charging other smiles.

Senseless gossiping
often ends in much despair
with fact and fiction.

Hardwired thinking
finds some imagination
needing perception.

Too large an ego
will show you only sadness
as life moves along.

Convenience of time
brings many down troubled roads
that they should not go.

Last place can be first
when last is the beginning
of another path.

Closing your mind up
to the things that you can’t see
might still show some ghost.

The river of time
flows as a journey through life
with unknown numbers.

Leftover breezes
hold the format of the wind
in smaller detail.

A choice that we make
becomes a pattern in time
that we can rethink.

When watching the clouds
you might see a formation
that looks familiar.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another week gone by and Judy and I have been
getting a few more fall colors caught on camera.  They’re
almost all gone away though with just a few lingering,  but
we did manage to catch a few on camera.  Judy went to see
the dentist in Houlton Tuesday and while she was in being
taken care of,  I walked around outside and found me a few
nice spots to take pictures.  One of which was downtown
from where we were.  The colors were beautiful.  I took a
few pictures on our drive to town as well.  Yep,  we’re still
taking the boys for walks in the field.  We had missed a few
days and when we headed out for the field Thursday,  little
Benny was all a twitter.  He was like a little BB as he shot
here and there as fast as his little legs could run.  Milo of
course took it nice and slow just like us LOL.  He’s old :).
As soon as I finish writing my journal, I’m gonna take them
out for a stroll in the field.  I managed to get back into the
rhythm of writing my poems and haiku on Saturday.  Of
course that is subject to change being I’m human hehehe.
It got cold last night.  By midnight it was 30 F degrees brrr.
We had to turn on our radiator heaters.  It’s sort of cold
right now.  It’s 50 F degrees at 11:30 AM,  but supposed
to get back down to the lower 30’s again tonight.  Winter
is baring its teeth at us.  I wouldn’t be surprised if we got
an early snow this year.  It’s happened before!  Yep,  the
year is almost at its end once agin to start off yet another.
Benny wanted to go outside and explore around the house
so I let him out.  Last time I looked,  he was walking along
the side of the house.  Milo came with me to check on him.
He’s always keeping tabs on his little brother hehehehe.
If Milo thinks Benny has been out too long,  he’ll start
pawing at the door the same as he does when he’s gotta
go potty,  but the difference is,  he won’t go outside LOL.
He’ll just wait for Benny to come back in hehe.  After me
checking on Benny, Milo is resting in a doggy bed right
beside me.  It’s partly cloudy right now,  but that doesn’t
mean that the sun isn’t shining bright,  because it is. It’s
blinding to look outside without sunshades.  Me and the
boys will go out for our stroll sometime later in the day.
As you may have guessed it,  Judy is over at her sisters
house taking care of her mom while her sister goes to
work.  Judy does this every Sunday,  so the boys and
me have kind of gotten used to it.  Hehehe Benny got
shocked the other day when he apparently forgot that
he was not to go out in the field without us,  but he was
reminded by his electronic collar :).  It governs how
far they can go,  just like an electronic fence.  I’ll never
forget the first day that we tried it on Benny.  He went
too far and instead of coming back when he heard it
beeping,  he kept going and it shocked him,  but he ran
ahead instead of turning around and so I had to run
and tackle him and bring him back to the safe zone :).
He learned after that,  that when he hears it beeping,
to turn around.  Milo is hard of hearing,  but he can
hear the high pitched beeping.  The first time he went
too far,  he came back shaking his head and we knew
why LOL.  He might of gone a bit too far,  but we had
to start making them wear them agin,  due to after our
visits to the field,  they thought they could roam that
far always.  NOPE!  I’m trying to teach them that we
are to accompany them whenever they go out in the
field.  They’re learning.  Benny has gotten in a habit
of playing a little game with me in the field hehehehe.
When I say come here,  he looks at me as if to not hear
me,  but when I start slowly walking his way,  he comes
running LOL.  It’s his form of playing chase hehehehe.
He loves to try to get Milo to play chase with him and
then there are times that Milo will comply and it’s on.
It’s looking like more clouds have blown in.  I just took
a few pictures of them.  I love how they decorate the
sky.  I swear,  it seems that every time I walk out of
the room,  I have a little 4 legged shadow LOL.  Milo
follows me everywhere.  Benny is in the other part of
the house playing.  I can ever so often hear the jingle
of his collar LOL.  It’s warmed up a bit.  Now it’s only
53 F degrees hehehe.  I’m guessing that’s as warm as
it’s gonna get today.  It’s not that bad.  I’m used to
the winters with much colder,  so 53 is quite warm :).
In other words,  I can handle the cold much better
than the heat.  Yes,  I get cold,  but I can always put
on more clothes,  but I can only take off so many till
the neighbors start complaining LOL.  Plus I do love
snow,,,,,,,,,,, for a month or so,  but even I get a bit
sick of it after a while,  especially when it has turned
to merely ice and the driveway turns into a skating
rink and I don’t skate LOL.  I do have a pair of cleats
that I bought that I can attach to any of my TWO pair
of tennis shoes.  Nope,  I ain’t got a ton of shoes,  but
I do have one pair of hunting shoes for walking in the
woods from time to time.  I don’t hunt.  I don’t like
killing animals,  but me thinks if I had to,  I would
maybe kill a snake or something that threatened my
life or someone else’s.  I had to chase off a porcupine
the other day that was getting a bit too close to our
house and Benny was really getting anxious hehehe.
I didn’t want Benny or Milo to end up with a bunch
of spines stuck in their face.  Back in 2013 a skunk
took up residence in Benny’s doghouse and Benny
was bound and determined to get him out on his own,
but thankfully I was quick to snatch up Benny and
put him in our house.  Then,  I had the pleasure of
finding out how I was going to get that little bugger
out of his doghouse.  I tried poking and prodding to
make him lose his stink while I was protected behind
the house,  but that didn’t work.  So then I thought
of carrying him and doghouse out to the field near
the tree line and shake him out.  It was dark by then.
Well,  I made it out to the field,  but when I began to
try to shake the skunk out of the doggy door,  the
worst scenario happened.  The bottom of the house
fell out with the little skunk falling right before me.
LOL,  I wasn’t sure where he had fallen,  being it
was real dark,  so I shined my flashlight down on the
ground and there he was,  him and I with eyes locked
on one another.  I grabbed up the dog floor and took
the house and ran like the wind.  Fortunately,  I was
not sprayed.  I guess the little guy had pity on me
for what I had gone through hehehe.  I looked out
there a bit later,  I saw that he had gone back to
the woods WHERE HE BELONGED hehehehehe.
So,  you see,  I don’t kill unless I really have to.
Spiders,  yes I kill them because they creep out
Judy hehehe and yes of course rodents such as
mice and rats that get in the house from time to
time.  I know,  some of you out there have mice
as pets,  but these are not pets LOL.  When I was
young,  my Paw Paw found out in a aggravating way
that I don’t like to kill,  when he took me with him
when he went hunting LOL.  He was all ready to
shoot a rabbit and I hollered run for your life little
bunny hehehe.  I had guns,  but only shot at cans
and bottles.  Nope,  he never took me hunting with
him again after that LOL.  We did though enjoy
many a night fishing and I for some odd reason
didn’t mind catching and cleaning fish for my dear
grandmother to fry them up for us to eat :).  So,
I guess you could say,  I’ve killed fish.  Oh well,
none of us is perfect hehehe.  That’s why God did
what He did when He gave us His Son.  We will all
make mistakes,  for none of us is perfect.  Some
may think that they are,  but if they look at their
lives in a true mirror,  they will see many flaws in
their lives.  I have tons of flaws,  but I just do the
best I can to correct what I am able and let Jesus
have the rest.  He forgives us each one if we will
allow Him in our lives.  Don’t push Him away and
walk in the world blindly.  There are many things
out there that we cannot handle,  but Jesus can.
Let Him have them.  Don’t just sit and expect Him
to do it all,  for Jesus expects us to at least try to
do our part.  When you are weak, you will find Him
there just waiting to help.  Ok so now that I have
gone and rambled longer than on most days LOL,
I reckon it’s time for me to begin my search back
through all that I’ve written here to see if I can
find a good word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem.  So,  it’s away
I go to that place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title and after checking it looks like I have
not used it as of yet,  but it’s being used now :).

The Safe Zone

When some people move
they only will be
found as so safely
not tried a degree.
Not allowing new days
to come into view
many in the safe zone
will do as they do.
Don’t let your pathways
to be timeless chained
not learning anything,
lessons abstained.
The safe zone is good,
but it pays to step out
and learn how to live
much better about.
For if you will only
be found safely so,
you just might then also
not find life to grow.
Yet don’t be stupid
and walk through a door
without first then safely
checking before.
Bring Jesus with you,
please don’t go alone
for He will be guidance
as the daily safe zone.

There ya go hehehe.  Yes,  I know,  it’s not that great,  but
I did my best with the title I found :).  I hope you understood
the poem :).  Benny started barking a minute ago and I went
to look and it was only the neighbors as usual hehehehehehe.
Judy won’t be home till late tonight so I knew it wasn’t her.
The temperature made it up to 54 F degrees,  but I think it’s
going back down from there.  So,  I guess it’s time for me to
be telling you what I tell you every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems with
2 of them being sort of Christmassy and I wrote 1 poem about
Benny and Milo.  Also,  I wrote once again 22 haiku for all of
my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you find something you like.
Well,  it’s almost time for me to begin my search for that not
so elusive off switch,  but not before I wish you a blessings
filled weekend and a wonderful God filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now to find that off switch.
Ok,  I think I can see ya.  I thought I saw a screw roll out
from behind my monitor hehehehe.  Ok,  so now after you
peeking to see if the screw was yours,  I can see ya LOL.
Got ya,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

I Can Hear
(Benny and Milo)

Scenes with volume
I can hear
now and then
throughout the year.
Moments coming
into view
I can hear them
thereunto.
Even footsteps
oh so small
I can hear them
down the hall.
Running playing
in and out
I can hear
without a doubt
Each with sounds
so very clear
our two dogs
yes I can hear.

Without Warning

Changes coming,
changes going,
things might just be
without warning.
Tides of living
rolling through
without warning
might find you.
You might think that
you’re prepared
but you’re often
timeframe snared.
Without warning
times might show
things in life
you didn’t know.
So let Jesus
find your heart,
don’t let life
tear you apart.
Without warning
ends can come
so find peace
in God’s Own Son.

A Winter View

As autumn fades
and leaves a trail
found as many
leaves set sail
winter’s coming
into view
with its daily
there and to.
A winter view
comes in so cold
just the same as
times of old.
The season brings
the shade of white
a winter view
each day and night.
Yet now autumn
still holds on
day to day
from dusk to dawn.
The book of seasons
turns with time.
Pages display
their own sign.
A winter view will
soon be seen
white snow falling
like a dream.
Fluffy snowflakes
landing true
painting up
a winter view.

Stormy Weather

Clouds come floating
in with rain
falling on
our windowpane.
Then those clouds might
formulate
as they open
their flood gate.
Stormy weather
might find you
through the days
of clouds of blue.
They might not
be what you see,
but be clearly
soon to be.
Stormy weather
with its drive
comes with clouds
up in the sky.
Yet then after
it might show
a peaceful sight
of a big rainbow.
Across the sky
with colors bright
stormy weather
will be out of sight.

Simpler Times

As a child I dreamed of
nickels and dimes
to buy small things
in simpler times.
I thought of a wagon
the radio flyer
simpler times
within my desire.
A Daisy Red Ryder
BB gun
to shoot at some cans
till the day was done.
A Gumby toy
to twist and turn
as what a child
could only discern
Silly Putty
to bounce so high
and copy the funnies
when pressed just right.
Those simpler times
of long ago
now live and breathe
in things I know.

Doorways Of Christmas

Seasons come knocking
on doorways of time
some maybe troublesome
some then sublime.
Often the doorways
will open so wide
that it seems each day
is just multiplied.
Then as the winter winds
blow in their view
doorways of Christmas
are waiting thereto.
Scenes mesmerizing
as holly and mistletoe
doorways of Christmas
are seen to and fro.
So many blessings
of Christmastimes days
come through the scenes
of winters doorways.
Sometimes as snowflakes
falling so white
doorways of Christmas
show seasons delight.

Christmas Comes Closer

As a child waits patiently
watching and waiting
he or she might be just
anticipating.
Thinking about the toys
that they asked Santa for
while watching and waiting
each day a bit more.
Christmas comes closer then
and they get excited
with all their wants and more,
needs found divided.
They look to the stars at night
searching the skies
seeking to find Santa Claus
seen with their eyes.
Christmas comes closer then
as time moves along
and the kids start just singing
a little Christmas song.
Maybe one of Rudolf
and one of Santa Claus
ending with some joyful
Christmas applause.
Christmas comes closer then
and to their surprise
they see old Santa Claus
real high in the skies.
He looks down while smiling
and says with a grin
Children it was Lord Jesus
that made this begin.
He said to give freely
of love every day
even if Christmastime
is real far away.
Christmas comes closer
with each gift you give
as a girl or boy learns
how they’re to live.
Christmas comes closer
with each day that’s done
so why not be thankful
for God’s Only Son

Imagining True

A life full of dreamers
might come into view
filled with reality
imagining true.
Sometimes what’s imagined
can become reality
for dreamers will dream up
things that will be.
It’s our imagination
that becomes so much more
as a train with a train track
or airplane to soar.
So let your imagination
to show a better view,
one that just maybe
might truly come true.
For it’s imaginations
that make wondrous things
such as TV
or airplane with wings.
Imagining true now
can make future styles
sometimes to help ones
make more of their miles.

When Now Is Gone

After this moment is
no longer here
will you be wanting it
another year?
When now is gone
will you just wonder why
then was so quick to
just fly on by?
But of course moments
of now that we see
are not as so quick as
we future perceive.
When now is gone
will you just let it go,
or seek to repeat it
with flavors of woe?
Now gives us chances
to do what we should,
but when now is gone
will it be as no good?
Let now be found as
your best then to be,
for when now is gone
it’ll be history.

Life Finds Wonders

Timeframes perceived
are sometimes unclear
as our life finds wonders
year after year.
Our books are written
with actions and words
flying in the skies
as a large flock of birds.
Life finds wonders
as time moves along
often with right ways
often with wrong.
Many connections
through our own desires
become as doorways
to lifetimes of fires.
Burning and churning
what that we see
as life finds wonders
for you and me.
Mysteries format
becomes oceans tide
while life finds wonders
eyes opened wide.
Let your imagination
look passed thereunto
and see all the wonders
that God gave to view.
Sometimes the wonders
are hidden in time
that we’ve yet to imagine
inside of our mind

Haiku
for Oct 11,  2014

Many ideas
become as soured viewpoints
as time moves along.

Looking through windows
might prove that you’re a pervert
or looking outside.

Winters mysteries
come as either fallen snow
or icicles hung.

Today brings changes
that may or may not be seen
due to our eyesight.

So many breezes
are shipments of surprises
wrapped up in minutes.

As the seasons changes
they display new beginnings
found in each moment.

When today subsides
the night slowly comes alive
with moonlight and stars.

Without differences
we would become very bored
and just waste away.

Yesterdays turnstiles
could become today’s hindsight
of what we wanted.

Listening to birds
as they sing their chirping songs,
I find it peaceful.

Echoes of a yell
often come back with answers
to how far it went.

When life becomes sad
find a viewpoint of happy
that you remember.

Nobody did it
is what that many conclude,
for it wasn’t them.

Needing some insight
finds many in bad places
that they should not be.

Looking for some peace
needs your journey done within
and let flow outwards.

Wintertime from Fall
comes with cold winds blowing in
and maybe some snow.

A hurried soldier
might run into much trouble
he did not expect.

When anger explodes
seek for peace to release it
or trouble will burn.

Life finds disaster
as doorways to our heartaches
become remembered.

The turn of a screw
will either loosen a heart
or tighten it up.

As today closes
look for the lessons in it
that make you stronger.

Hate becomes heightened
when words are repeated
that make you angry.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been?  Last week was pretty nice.  Judy and I
celebrated our 13 year wedding anniversary Thursday Oct 2 :).
We went for a nice fall color picture taking drive up north of us
and then on the way home stopped and got us some dinner at
the Governor’s Restaurant in Presque Isle ME.  We took tons
of pictures of the fall colors hehehe.  It was a bright and sunny
day with not a cloud in the sky.  Of course,  I would have liked
to have had a few clouds in the skies as artwork,  but none the
less,  it was a beautiful day.  Yes, the boys came with us,  but
we didn’t get any pictures of them,  being we were hesitant to
let them outside to run while we took pictures LOL.  We did
though stop ever so often to let them out on back roads so they
could potty and run about for a bit.  Milo ate something that
didn’t agree with him and he ended up with diarrhea,  but he’s
OK now.  Good thing we had that dog protection cover over
the backseat LOL.  I just took some paper towels and wiped
it out and it was all good :).  I put the dirty paper towels in a
WalMart bag and through it away when we got home.  It’s
good that we bought that dog cover.  Boy,  that would have
been a big mess LOL.  Anyways,  Milo is feeling better now.
If you haven’t already guessed,  it’s just me and the boys
again.  Oh an I got a late start on my poems again hehehe.
I ended up having to write everything today (Sunday) LOL.
So,  my journal will be a little late getting finished hehehe.
Though many of you never read it until sometime during
the week anyways,  so I don’t guess it matters to you huh :).
Benny just strolled in wanting some attention,  so I had to
stop and pet him.  I gave him half of a treat and he headed
off to the living room with it LOL.  Milo is lying down in
the floor on the doggy mat right beside me.  He’s sound
asleep just watching those sheep jump over the fence :).
LOL I take that back.  He just woke up and he’s getting
a drink of water which is in his case a guzzle hehehehe.
I could swear that he’s part camel or elephant hehehehe.
It’s a good thing that we bought these extra large water
bowls.  The water jug in the bedroom holds 2 1/2 gallons
of water and the one in here holds 4 1/2 gallons of water.
The hard part is filling the darn things hehehe.  It kills
me having to carry the jugs to fill them and then have to
kneel down in the floor to put them down.  One of these
days I won’t be able to do that and I’ll have resort to
just filling up the bowls and not the reservoirs,  but I
don’t think that they’ll mind as long as there’s water to
drink hehehe.  Milo finished drinking and then he pawed
the door as he always does to say in his own words,  I’ve
gotta go pee now LOL.  So,  I let him out.  Benny was
in a playful mood and when Milo tried to come back in,
he jumped him and then him and Milo went running
down the hallway to where I am now LOL.  They do
have their moments hehehe.  I wish there was a way
for me to post the video that I made using many of the
pictures we took Thursday here in my email,  being
many of you aren’t on Facebook.  I did the video and
uploaded it late in the evening after Judy and I got
home from our fall anniversary drive Thursday.  It
turned out pretty good if don’t say so myself LOL,
which I did in fact say so hehehe.  God blessed us
with a beautiful day with colors so bright.  We couldn’t
asked for more.  We had our picture taken at the
restaurant.  I asked the waitress if she would mind
taking our picture and she said no problem.  She did
a pretty good job.  For those of you seeing this in
stationery format,  you’ll see the picture.  Judy and
I also took a few selfies outside the restaurant and
they came out,  well,  pretty good hehehe.  It was
real bright outside :).  Thank You God for allowing
us to have those special times together.  We may
often take things for granted,  but I know that You
are always watching over us with Your Higher Love.
I know problems will come our way,  but with You
all things are possible.  Now I reckon I need to be
taking my little journey back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find me a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title for today’s brand
new poem.  So it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I thought I found a good title and then I
looked again and I found a better title.  One that
goes along with the season :).  Also after checking
I found that the title has not been used yet,  so,
here goes nothing :).

Colors So Bright

That autumn day
a wonderful sight
showed us the shades
of colors so bright.
Scenes all around us
with wonderful hues
red,  yellow,  green, brown
with some semi sort of blues.
Even the aroma
of that autumn day
showed us the colors
without any gray.
A picture that’s taken
can not be found
as the true colors
red,  yellow,  green,  brown.
The colors so bright
were God’s work of art
displayed as paintings
with a Heavenly heart.

Ok,  there ya go.  I hope the poem was good enough for you.
I know most of my rambling was either about the boys or our
anniversary hehehe,  but hey,  that’s all I could think on LOL.
Judy just got home and Benny went ecstatic hehehe.  When
Milo found out mom was home,  he too went a little bonkers.
They missed their mom :).  Well,  I might not get this journal
done until late tonight,  because I’ve gotta fix us something
to eat.   Well, I fixed Judy and I some burritos and then for
desert we had Klondike Bars.  Benny and Milo wanted our
burritos hehehe,  but nope.  So,  I guess I will try to write
a bit more to get this done.  LOL of course if I’m able while
Benny is licking my leg.  Anyways,  I guess it’s time for me
to tell you what I tell you every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku,  of course as I said I wrote
them all today LOL.  Yep,  10 more poems with one of
them being Christmassy and one of them about Benny
and Milo :).  Also as usual,  I 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 elusive off switch,  but
not before I wish you a most wonderful God filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.  Ok,   where
are ya hiding you dad burned off switch?  I see ya you
silly thing.  Hiding under my school annuals wasn’t too
bright huh.  I could hear ya trying to breathe as I saw
the annuals sort of move LOL.  They’re sort of heavy
huh hehehe.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. It’s 12 midnight and 37 F degrees :)

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

Truthful Refute

Things we’re assuming,
or things we might see
might not be truthfully
what’s you and me.
Our meanings get lost
within so many views
and turn out real pointless
displayed in the news.
Pointless perception
is the uncovered sight
arguing over
who’s wrong or right.
So often our wording
is heard in the gray
while not understanding
what we really say.
Pointless then blossoms
its own view inside
taking perception
on a real bumpy ride.
Pointless needs lessened
to end the dispute
and find understanding
with truthful refute.

Have A Heart

Don’t let anger
come between
ones you love
and turn unclean.
Have a heart
and learn to view
what that’s really
within you.
Often judgment
is from pain
that in time
you might attain.
Find the true love
deep inside
and then cease
that bumpy ride
Have a heart
and let things go,
for some things
are long ago.
Let the past be
left alone.
Have a heart
with good times grown.

Looks Of Winter

While the year rolls by
it displays some changes
that are found daily
as time rearranges.
Seasons come marching
to their own drum
some also showing
the brightest of sun.
Then looks of winter
come in with its stride
holding some snowflakes
found deep down inside.
Soon they begin falling
with Earthly bound ways
seeking to paint up
our wintertime’s days.
Then there is Christmastime
found front and center
showing the beauty found
in looks of winter.
Scenes come alive then
lights all aglow
in looks of winter then
found in the snow.
Yet many only will
dream that delight,
for they are where there’s
no snow in sight,
but the looks of winter
and Christmastimes view
can still be there then
alive within you.
Found in a dreamland
hopeful desires
the looks of winter
burns Christmastimes fires.
Stockings hung nicely
on the mantle with care
with looks of winter
and Christmastimes flair.
Don’t let the season to
fall from your heart,
for the looks of winter
helps Christmas to start.

Tomorrows Day

As time moves forwards
and yesterday’s gone
tomorrows day comes
with a new dawn.
The ticking of minutes
just might be sometimes
somebodies ventures
of passed days land mines.
Tomorrows day comes
with many choices
that start by morning
and often our voices.
Sometimes our yesterdays
lodge in our brain
not giving chances
for good to attain.
Don’t let your yesterdays
get in your way.
Find now some peaceful
in your tomorrows day.

Just One Smile

A brand new day
can show great things
with just one smile
found in the scenes.
With just one smile
the day can show
a few more smiles
seen to and fro.
For just one smile
can grow another
then some more
will grow much further.
So many smiles
can become found
from just one that’s
spread all around.
Yes,  just one smile
is all it takes
to sometimes heal
someone’s heartaches.
Then that little
moments while
will grow more
from just one smile.

A Dream In The Sky

With clouds up above us
a dream in the sky
can become ventured
and then start to fly.
A few clouds so fluffy
held up above you
might have a rainbow
that’s real soon to view.
A dream in the sky
with countless details
can be a snowflake
or ship with large sails.
With just a little bit
of our imagination
a dream in the sky
thrives into formation.
Always found painting
with brush strokes so high
the clouds can become as
a dream in the sky.

The Tides Of Life

With waves of hearts
that crash ashore
the tides of life
are evermore.
They come in stages
days and nights
with formations
the tides of life.
So many faces
will come to be
the tides of life
for us to see.
As waves roll in
with hearts desires
the tides of life
light many fires.
With connections
found in reach
the tides of life
are Heavens beach.
Love transcending
through a gaze
the tides of life
show better days.

As We Wonder

The thoughts we have
as we wonder
might become
a moments thunder.
Tainted thinking
could destroy
any chance
for greater joy.
As we wonder
blindly so
we might also
cease to grow.
Let the lessons
of another
help you find
without much blunder.
For we often
wander too
as we wonder
what to do.

Sundial Thoughts

Thoughts from shadows
found to cast
often show what’s
from the past.
Sundial thoughts
of time agin
might make many
just to grin.
Yet some people
just get lost
in their bad days
sundial thoughts.
Now shows moments
shadows too
sundial thoughts
right now to view.
Let some shadows
be well seen
sundial thoughts
of nows cuisine.

Four Pawed

Little boys
of young and old
now are four pawed
stories told.
These two brothers
side by side
have true love
we can’t deny.
Four pawed pathways
they will go
summers field
and winters snow.
These to brothers
aren’t the same
for they’re different
breeds of names.
Yet they always
show so true
four pawed passion
through and through.
They’re our boys
we love them so
and we take them
where we go.
They love to go
for rides and more
here and there
and to the store.
Their four paws
that watch and wait
have not any
sign of hate.
Full of love
these 2 boys are.
They’re our four pawed
shining stars.

Haiku
for Oct 5,  2014

So many people
just see the outer layer
and don’t look inside.

Yesterdays troubles
could become so much larger
if you did not learn.

A lavender sky
becomes blue as minutes pass
and later fades black.

So many doorways
will only let you inside,
so take some caution.

Beyond our eyesight
could be our reality
holding some nightmares.

Life is a pathway
that just might change directions
without warning you.

Links to a heartbeat
might be in form of a dream
connected in time.

Without Lord Jesus
we have no chance for Heaven
for we have all sinned.

Within a mere breeze
lies the formation of change
from daylight to dark.

Sometimes comfort zones
can cause our own destruction
for they keep us week.

Doorways and windows
open up with some viewpoints,
but some you can’t see.

Life is a mystery
as we walk onwards through it
finding surprises.

The pattern of time
comes in many shapes and forms
when it is counted.

Looking too closely
might find you in confusion.
Back away and look.

With too much free time
many will conjure up pain
from their own self will.

Living on the edge
might find you one day falling
without any help.

When today is gone
it leaves us some memories
found in tomorrow.

In a page of life
are the painted emotions
found in you and I.

Turmoil finds pathways
through unprotected doorways
that we’re not prepared.

Even loving God
does not prevent our sicknesses,
but He gives us strength.

Playing with fire
will maybe burn your house down
and leave you in ash.

Stepping out blindly
could land you in much trouble,
so watch where you walk.
