ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s Sunday again and according to the hands
of the clock on the wall, it’s time to begin my
rambling hehehe. This passed week has been
pretty fair. We got some more snow Friday
and we had to drive into town to pay the light
bill in the midst of it LOL. It wasn’t too bad.
The county snowplows were busy clearing the
roads. Judy never got passed 35 miles an hour.
It was a long drive to town and back due to
that LOL. I did though take pictures as if you
thought I wouldn’t hehehe. I even did a video
of our drive, which I uploaded to Facebook.
Many said they enjoyed riding along with us.
Anyways, It also snowed Wednesday a little
bit and me and the boys got out and played
in it while I took a few pictures. I walked out
to check the mail and they just watched me
from our driveway. They’re very good boys.
Judy and I gave Rocky a haircut Saturday,
or at least we did the best we could LOL.
He’s not fond of getting his hair cut, so it
took both of us to hold him and attempt to
trim him. We are going to have to work out
a plan for getting his underside trimmed :)
We’ll figure it out LOL. In the mean time
he looks better than he did hehehe. Benny
isn’t needing a haircut yet. We did him not
too long ago. Today’s just a lazy day here
at the Pearce’s Place. Benny and Rocky
are lying around in the floor and Judy is
behind me on her PC browsing Pinterest
and whatever :) Tonight we’ll watch our
favorite Sunday shows or at least we will
try being tonight’s Superbowl Sunday and
neither of us could care less about football.
Neither of us is a sports fan, so we might
end up watching Family Feud on GSN LOL.
Judy might work some more on her new
book. She’s writing a new poetry book :)
I’m hoping that when I die that she can do
something with all of my poetry to provide
her a nice living :) I would put mine in a
book, but it’s more than my right eye can
handle, being I would have to do a lot of
editing and reformatting of all of the poems.
No matter, I’m sure she will be OK. We’re
hoping that her newest book when published
becomes a hit. Time will tell. Yet for now
I must stay alive and do the best I can to
keep her laughing LOL. I do irritate her
from time to time with my dad jokes hehehe.
It’s 16 F degrees right now at 5:13 PM and
it’s supposed to be 3 F degrees by morning.
Still, it’s not too bad for February hehehe.
I bought us 157 more gallons of heating
oil and it was delivered Thursday, so that
should keep us going for another month or
so. Especially since I turned the heat down.
I had turned it up when my daughter came
up, but forgot to turn it back down and it
used a little more heating oil than it would
at a lower setting. No matter, I think we’re
good till spring, but of course it’s still cold
during spring normally. We normally still
have snow then too hehehe. It might be a
warmer spring being our winter has been
not of the norm. So OK, what else has
been going on up this way? Well, Judy’s
mom is still not doing too well. Please put
her in your prayers. My grandmother is
not responding to anyone. She might be
on her last year of life. She’s 108 years
old. My sister is doing well or at least
that’s what my mom tells me. She said
that Peggy’s surgery went well and now
she is home being taken care of by her
kids. Hey Peggy, I won’t call and bother
you, but if ya need to talk, I’m here :)
Call any time. I love ya sis. With me way
up here in Nowhere’s Ville it’s hard to be
of any help. Though I do know that God
hears my prayers and does what’s needed.
Prayer can travel further than any mode
of transportation. LOL Rocky has finally
quit begging for treats and laid down with
his brother in the floor. He was driving me
crazy hehehe. Judy was trying to get him
to quit and then I turned and looked at him
and went HEY and then he hushed hehehe.
As if my eyes said it all LOL. I think he
can tell when he has crossed the line LOL,
at least with me hehehe. So, what else is
there to tell ya? Hmm. it looks like for the
moment I cannot think of anything else, so
I guess it’s time for me to begin my search
back through all that I’ve written here for
a word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem. So it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I found a somewhat decent
title, but now I’ve gotta write something
using it. LOL Wish me luck. Here goes.

Another Month

A time of day,
an hour passed
another month
has shadows cast.
The minutes fly,
or so they seem
some as nightmares,
some as dream.
An episode
that finds its place
with aroma
and a taste.
Another month
will come unto
to display then
another view.
So with heartbeats
gathered around
another month
shows solid ground.
With some prayerful
times accord
another month
is great The Lord.
Time will pass on
leaving still
echoes surely
of our will.
So make effort
to make good
another month
the way you should.

So OK, there ya go. I hope that makes at
least a little sense to you hehehe. I had to
read it back to myself to find out what all
I had written hehehe. I do this thing called
automatic writing and I just tune into my
memories and begin writing. It’s my gift
from God. You do know that most of the
time I write all 10 poems and 22 haiku in
the same day in a matter of a few hours :)
God gave me this gift and I am using it to
the best of my ability. When He wants me
to do more, I’m sure He will let me know
in some manner or form and He will give
me the ability to do so. Now, to see if I’ve
forgotten to tell you anything. Oh yea,
please keep my bro Mark Green in your
prayers. He’s has blood clots in his leg
and in his lungs. He is scheduled to go
for surgery in the next few days. Take
care bud. God is in control. Keep the
faith dude. Love ya bro. Now I guess
I’ve told you about everything that needs
to be told, so I reckon it’s time for me
to tell you what I tell you most every week
and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yep, 10 more poems and
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there. I hope you can find 1 or the
other that you like or maybe even both.
So, now it’s time for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and a
truly blessings filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now
to find that off switch. Hehehe I think
I see movement from behind my Advair.
LOL you would think out of all these
years, you would be able to hide better
than that, wouldn’t ya? Well, maybe
not 😉 Anyways, guess what hehehehe,
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

Clouds With Color

A sky of beauty
like no other
are sometimes
some clouds with color.
With flavored sights
far and wide
clouds with color
coincide.
Mesmeric feelings
come so sweet
clouds with color
look good to eat.
Tasty morsels
find our gaze
clouds with color
blue inlays.
The blue sky filters
what we see
clouds with color
given free.

Silence Between Thoughts

With just but a fraction
of time that we see
we might just be thinking
what others agree.
But yet with some minutes
some time passes by
silence between thoughts
as ones wonder why.
Many might question us
what we think is right
with silence as wording
within every sight.
Silence between thoughts
might right now seem brief,
but others that read you
have doubting belief.
So if all your pauses
are how you reply
remember the truth might
live in your eye.

Indigo Dragonfly

Those days I remember
fishing on the shore
of a little tiny pond
from a time I adore.
An indigo dragonfly
fluttered and flew
across the tiny pond
right there in my view.
Its colors so magical
seeming as a dream
having blue and violet
to bond in the scene.
The colors would shine on
in the bright sun rays
while my Pawpaw and I
fished on summer days
I watched it for hours
as its wings fluttered by
that blessing from God
the indigo butterfly.

Pages Dog-Eared

Our living journal
that so many see
might have a few dog-ears
a frazzled degree.
Pages dog-eared
to remember a day
we can remember
a wonderful way.
Yet many pages
might not be so great
as pages dog-eared
found as just fate.
Maybe a scenario
that turned out bad
times you remember
things you once had.
Those pages dog-eared
might then in turn
become as your journal
with lessons to learn.

A Fresh Wind

Mornings breathing
winds to find
with a fresh wind
time to time.
A fresh wind blowing
in with style
bringing in
a little smile.
Smiles from winter
morning makes
over valleys,
over lakes.
A fresh wind might have
scenes of white
snowflakes falling
there in sight.
With a fresh wind
might be seen
what that might be
someone’s dream.

A Marble Sky

Paintings painted
white and blue
up above me
now are true.
A wondrous sky
with twirling scenes
brings to sight
so many things.
Clouds as billows
floating on
seen as marble
till they’re gone.
So much artwork
filled with blue
with a wonderful,
whitish hue.
God’s Own brushstrokes
then apply
more within a
marble sky.

Angel Of Dawn

With dreams upon midnight
the minutes move on
displaying by morning
an angel of dawn.
Maybe as a flower
that blooms in your sight,
or maybe a person
that you so delight.
An angel of dawn
might be as a friend
or maybe someone
that times transcend.
Often our angels
are not seen at all,
but yet they’re there
to help when you fall.
You might awaken
with life that is gone
and find the answers from
an angel of dawn.

A Misguided Duck

With winters winds blowing
a misguided duck
starts on his journey
late without luck.
Headed the wrong way
which way he’s going
a misguided duck
heads right where it’s snowing.
He flies through the air
in a misguided style
headed the wrong way
then all the while.
The misguided duck
has left the flock
to seek a summertime
southern dock.
Yet this most surely
misguided duck
within his journey
is flat out of luck.

Many Colors

You and I
we might exclaim
many colors
not the same,
but within us
you and I
are God’s children
by and by.
Many colors,
many see,
but they do not
show who’s me.
It’s what’s inside
that is found
which connects us,
common ground.
So quit hating
them and I.
Find God’s love
to then apply.
Different beliefs
are a choice,
true that should
be as their voice,
but those choices
do not make
you and I
a big mistake.
What you think
might not be right,
for the darkness
hides the light.
Let God’s love
to show the way
what to do
and what to say.
Many colors
might transcend,
but they can be
your best friend.

Interlude

Those times between
the moments there
will sometimes seem
what are not fair.
An interlude
of humps and holes
that make real rough
our daily goals.
We might be found
without a clue
of now and then
the interlude.
So many things
from in-between
might seem as times
nightmarish dream.
Yet some moments
we’ve misconstrued,
might just be
an interlude.

Haiku
for Feb 6, 2016

A wasteful moment
is a time without effort,
waiting for others.

Weeding of gardens
does not guarantee they’re gone,
for some might linger.

Belonging to one
does not prevent ownership
of yet another.

Catastrophic times
often come with some lessons
to be later found.

Making all right turns
will create a true circle
that comes back to now.

Photo images
only display what all you saw
and not the texture.

As a flower grows
it displays many moments
gathered throughout time.

Beyond the night air
holds a place for memories
found within our mind.

A dream comes alive
when the truth connects to it
making it as real.

A shadow of time
can become an entity
leaving our footprints.

Buds of a flower
hold life deep within each one
to open up in spring.

Disclosed emotions
can sometimes turn out badly,
so take heed your words.

The grass might look dead,
but it thrives beneath the ground
to be mowed in spring.

Wintertime’s snowflakes
come as angels from Heaven
to cover the ground.

Radiant beauty
is the sun as it glimmers
a warm sunny day.

Dreaming of passion
will not make it to be true,
for it takes action.

The vibe of liars
is a trait within themselves
that began as seed.

Life has a flavor
that many find as sour
due to their choices.

A lions own roar
might scare itself in darkness
if it’s thought alone.

The needs of others
may look to you as weakness,
but they are our lives.

The haves and have nots
envelop our existence
as many will fade.

Mild mannered people
will sometimes hide their true selves,
which are much stronger.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another weird week gone by and it
looks as though we have yet another to follow.
Today’s high is supposed to be 37 F and right
now it’s 36 F. Totally bizarre. It was snowing
off and on yesterday. It looks like we will have
a sort of warm week this week. It’s quite a bit
of a change from our previous years. Most of
the snow storms that we usually got have gone
below us. Anyways, I’m sure winter has quite
a ways before it is over with. It’s coming like
a lamb this year, but for all we know it might
leave as a tiger. I had let the boys out to go
potty a little bit ago and I just now let them in
and they’re pouncing on Judy in the bedroom.
Judy was trying to sleep a bit more, but they
put a stop to that LOL. I went ahead and got
up, being I knew they were not going to let
us sleep. So I figured I’d go ahead and start
writing this to you. Judy just got up and she
should be in here in a moment. The boys are
in a feisty mood this morning of course not
unlike any morning hehehe. They’re always
excited to see Judy and I up, but if we aren’t
up they are more than happy to wake us up :)
Gotta love em. Yep everyday is a new page
with wagging tails and smiling faces. These
boys are alive wires, especially Rocky LOL.
The day has begun. Of course ours starts
after 12 noon being we don’t go to bed until
early in the morning LOL. Judy and I are
& will probably always be night owls. I just
looked at my weather program and 44 F is
the forecast for Monday’s high LOL. This
is freaking February. Yeppers, this is a
weird beginning to the year. Hopefully it
doesn’t follow suit throughout the year ;(
I can’t handle too much heat. I am better
in cold temperatures or at least below 80 F
I’m very hot natured and I dehydrate easily.
The heat of Texas is what that almost killed
me along with my bout with Ulcerative colitis
and loss of my colon and a 3rd of my small
intestines. Yep, I should of been up here
all along hehehe. Well, I’m here now and
I reckon I will probably die here. Judy and
the boys have joined me in here now. We
might eat breakfast in a bit, but Judy just
took her medicine and she has to wait an
hour before she can eat. She just said she
has 20 minutes before she can eat. So until
then I will keep on writing. It’s a bit cloudy
outside. It’s supposed to snow a lil bit this
evening and then snow and rain later after
midnight. It ain’t nothing that I’ve ever
seen in this time of year, but it is taking
an easy on our heating oil thank God LOL.
Normally we would already be sending out
for more oil by now. The first of December
we bought 500 dollars worth of heating oil
which filled our 250 gallon tank, but as I
said, in the past, we would already be out.
Though we are pretty close to empty right
now. I’ll be ordering more this week when
Judy and I get paid. Thank God the price
of heating oil is down. We won’t be able
to fill it completely, but we will be able
to buy over a 100 gallons, possibly 150.
That’s how it goes up here :) Life in the
fast lane. Benny and Rocky are enjoying
the snow. Benny loves it a bit more than
Rocky though. Benny doesn’t want to come
inside if it’s snowing hehehe. He loves to
watch it fall and play in it. Rocky is sort
of like Milo was. He prefers to stay inside
and barks at the door until you let him in.
Aside from that, he is nothing the same.
Milo didn’t care much for the snow, but
Rocky plays in it with Benny. The funny
thing about Rocky is when Benny chooses
to stay outside and play in the snow, he’ll
bark and whine until we get Benny to come
back inside LOL. He loves his big brother.
Of course, Rocky is about the same size
as Benny, but Benny is older than him by
a few years :). Benny will turn 5 in July,
but we never got Rocky’s actual birthday.
Though when we got him, we all figured
him to be no more than about a year old
and we gave him Benny’s birthday, not
the year. So Rocky should be about 2
years old July 16 and Benny will be 5 :)
LOL we got Rocky on Benny’s birthday
and that sort of also gave us the idea to
make that his birthday as well. When we
got Rocky, he was very shy and would
not do nothing but lie flat on the ground
if you put a leash on him, but now he’s
a changed pup. I think he finally found
out what it is to be loved, the same as
Benny and Milo. Yes, we still think of
Milo. I will often feel his presence in the
house. Most nights I will go in the living
room and look up at his ashes and say
goodnight Milo. I love you. Family is
family no matter the breed or blood, at
least that’s how we feel. The Grace of
God covers all living things. He has
purpose in all that we see. Sometimes
though we might not see the purposes
and think things useless, but reasons
are there. There must be good and bad
in life to help us to strive forwards. For
without the bad, we would not appreciate
the good, for it would be just another
day gone by. Find the blessings in every
sight you see. They are there, but at
the moment not seem clear, or seem as
something that should not happen. Life
needs a rough road to strengthen it or
it will wither in the wind. OK so now I
believe it’s time for me to search through
all of my rambling to find a word or phrase
that I can use for the title of today’s brand
new poem. So, it’s away I go to that little
place that I call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may of found a good title, but
the proof will be in the pudding hehehe.
So here goes……….

Good and Bad

Without the bad
within the day
the good of times
would fade away.
Good and bad
of then and there
will make more clear
what’s right and fair.
Past to present
signifies
the good and bad
before our eyes.
Lessons displayed
in our sight
are good and bad
with wrong and right.
So the next time
you perceive
a bitter time
of which you weave,
know that truly
it can teach
the better view
of which to reach.

There ya go. I hope it made some sense to
you. Also I hope you enjoyed my rambling.
I know I will often drift off into a cloud of
hazy thoughts LOL, but that’s my thoughts.
The good and bad of ventures trod, seen by
some might seem real odd. I couldn’t help
myself hehehe. That little rhyme just flew
out of my head :) I guess you might find
that weird. OH well, that’s the way that
my brain works. I’ve given up on trying to
figure it out. I guess I’m just bizarre and
that’s the way I’m supposed to be hehehe.
OK so I need to ask once again for your
prayers. My sister is doing well as far
as I have heard from my mom, but my
buddy Mark is still needing your prayers.
I also have a few of my other friends and
family that are needing prayer, so if
you pray, I’m sure God will know why
and who to aim it towards. So, now I
think it’s time for me to be telling you
what I tell you almost every week and
that is, I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems, but
none are Christmassy this week hehehe.
Also I wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there. I hope you
can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like. Now, I reckon it’s time for
me to begin my search for that hardly
elusive off switch, but not before I wish
you a wonderful weekend or whatever’s
left of it and a truly blessings filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do
too. So to begin that search for Mr. silly
off switch. Where oh where can you be
hiding, maybe providing a sight to see?
Where oh where can you be hiding trying
to hide from silly me? Hehehe I know,
another poem LOL. Anyways, guess
what? I think I see ya hiding behind
my orange juice glass which is rather
dumb if you ask me. It’s empty and it’s
see through LOL. Don’t run now LOL.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

When Is Then

Where and when
is then and there,
when here we sit
just anywhere?
When is then
when now is found
there and where
with sight and sound.
What and who
with how and when
bring alive
the there and then.
Did and done
from do and does
leaves ones with
their just because.
When is then
when there is where
while what and how
might be right there..

Storms Of Fancy

Clouds of thunder
fill the skies
with their many
what’s a why’s
Storms of fancy
fill the minds
with so many
different kinds.
Scenes of lightning
scattered true
storms of fancy
with it’s view.
Seeming painted
going dark
storms of fancy
then embark.
Bringing portions
to and fro
storms of fancy
where they go.
Skies of wonder
come to be
storms of fancy
then to see.
Some with raindrops,
some with hail
storms of fancy
then set sail.
Even snowflakes
might fall from
storms of fancy
to become
whitish patterns
in the sky
storms of fancy
then to fly.
Then as minutes
carry on
storms of fancy
then are gone.

Lesser Of Evil

When filled with anger
and it seems to grow
sometimes it’s better
to let someone know.
The lesser of evil
can find hope from two
as a friend becomes help then
to bring calm to you.
The lesser of evil
is sometimes in time
ticking with patience
as minutes unwind.
Often the pathway
of footsteps we make
brings us to problems
that then come awake.
The lesser of evil
of sometimes to be
can become peaceful
with prayerful degree.
Allowing some healing
to live in your heart,
the lesser of evil
finds peace to impart.

Looking Inwards

While looking outwards
you might just see
people much better
that might not be.
For many people
will wear a disguise
not showing truly
the fear in their eyes.
Try looking inwards
and seeing what’s true
of all the wantings
that you want for you.
Are you comparing
yourself with another
while looking outwards
at sister or brother.
Often what’s showing
is not really there,
for they’re looking outwards
at your everywhere.
So looking inwards
to see what that’s true
you might also find that
they might be like you.

Along For The Ride

A trip through scenery
car wheels will roll
onto a journey
as pages unfold
Along for the ride
my eyes look around
seeking for beauty
of both sight and sound.
Each minute counted
is filled with a scene
worth taking pictures
that look like a dream.
Time becomes countless
as each day moves on
while I take pictures
from dusk unto dawn.
My camera is ready
to be then applied
filled with the photos
along for the ride.

A Year Or Two

A time that’s passed
a year or two
can become lessons
you now can view.
With all the pages
of your times ago
a year or two
might now seek to know.
Drama found portions
of yesterdays times
a year or two
might show as land mines.
Things that we wanted,
but misunderstood
a year or two
what’s bad and what’s good.
Sometimes the lessons
are too rough a road
a year or two
with a real heavy load.
That’s why to God
we need pray every day,
so a year or two
isn’t just Hell to pay.

The Depth Of Life

The stages we set
from birth until end
display the pathways
that our lives transcend.
For the depth of life
is a journey begun
with every footstep
things that we’ve done.
Often our footprints
ones find in the sand
show us with Jesus
in life hand in hand.
Yet many moments
might show only strife
us in our sinful
with the depth of life.
That’s why a minute
a moment should be
the depth of life
with you prayerfully.
Do your best then
not hiding away
all of the lessons
you’ve learned day to day.
The depth of life
is a learning view
good and bad journeys
that show what to do.

Winter’s White While

Soothing are snowflakes
while they float to Earth
in white winter’s while
from their place of birth.
The sky looks like ice-cream
so fluffy to flow
in winter’s white while then
with fresh fallen snow,
A dreamers storybook
that opens to pour
a winter’s white while
with a blessings allure.
Seen in the morning
as oceans of white
snowflakes then fall down
a dreamers delight.
Each one is counted,
but looks not the same
in winter’s white while
for time to attain.

Lost Bits Of Time

Back in my younger years
I can recall
fishing on the lake
from spring unto fall.
Lost bits of time
still leave holes to find
things I’ve forgotten
from time after time.
Yet I remember
my Papa and I
floating in the boat
till time would run dry.
We’d fish all night long
and return by dawn
with many fish
and then give a yawn.
Standing side by side
we’d clean all the fish
and grandmother’d come
to make them delish.
She cook them up
and we’d come to eat
that evening later
what she made so sweet.
Yet lost bits of time
still evade my view
things I’ve forgotten
and things that I’d do.
Surely as time goes
I remember a while
some lost bits of time
that bring me a smile.

The Sleight Of Hand

A magic trick,
a sleight of hand
can sometimes seem
a magic man.
A wondrous moment
time has seen
the sleight of hand
might then agleam.
Sometimes people
fool the eyes
a sleight of hand
with sad demise.
Sometimes truth
is hard to see
the sleight of hand
for you and me.
A moments focus
might portray
the sleight of hand
a truthful way.
For a minute
seen as a fool
the sleight of hand
can seem so cruel.
Yet if you look
with opened eyes,
the sleight of hand,
you’ll see the lies.

Haiku
for Jan 30, 2016

Within a whirlwind
holds time seeming magical
as it consumes it.

Tree leaves found blowing
leave only slight trails of time
as they flutter passed.

Changes of the year
are clearer as time passes
leaving their footprints.

Within our heartbeat
lives the fashion of God’s love
that keeps us alive.

A circus clowns smile
is just painted on his mouth
that might hide a frown.

Beyond perception
are the things we overlook
because we’re busy.

When pouring water
the flow is governed by you,
as some things you do.

Harvesting memoirs
as a lifetime of moments
might display sadness.

Within memories
are things that keep us alive
that are called lessons.

Pointless is thinking
when your thoughts are just of dreams
and not what can be.

The bloom of tulips
becomes as a tapestry
with many colors.

Fluorescent skylines
display as the clouds move by
creating a haze.

Jumbled emotions
come from explosions of sight
inwards and outwards.

Choice is a blessing,
but can seem as a nightmare
when chosen wrongly.

Glimmers of daylight
come from the trees of shadows
that let light peek through.

Placing a flower
on a mornings arrival
might help it to bloom.

Need shows your human,
while acting as you need not
shows a large ego.

Flames of a fire
will become brighter in time
if fuel is added.

The looming starlight
becomes the ceiling of night
to give room for dreams.

Hurry is deadly
when it gets out of control
and does not slow down.

Horror of a dream
is often brought on by fears
of what you don’t know.

Looking at someone
and discerning who they are
might prove that you’re wrong.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It seems January has begun sort of mellow
for us this year. Of course that’s not so, for
the states below us. I feel for those that are
getting slammed by the snowstorms down
south of us. Of course I’m pretty sure they
didn’t feel no sympathy for us up here when
we were being hit in previous years LOL :)
Yep, this year it seems Maine is getting a
reprieve from the snowstorms at least during
January. We still have a few months to go,
for winter to do its thing hehehe. Right now
it’s 23 F degrees. Not too bad. OK so what
else is there to tell you? Well, this passed
week has been a sort non eventful one. We
have been taking a lot of pictures of the boys.
Of course most of them with us holding them.
Yep, not much going on up here. Judy and
I took a drive to town Saturday to get some
groceries and there was a beautiful sunset.
I took a number of pictures of it while a few
people waited to get by me LOL. I walked
over to get a better shot of it while we were
at Walmart and a lady sat in her car while
waiting for me to get done so she could get
passed me hehehe, OOPS. She didn’t seem
to be bothered too much as she gave a grin.
I saw a few pictures and videos that were
posted on Facebook of the storm down
south of us. Washington DC was having
a dickens of a time along with New Jersey,
New York and a few other states down
south of us. We’ve still got snow on the
ground, being it’s still freezing up here.
Though most of the snow has hardened
turning into a sheet of ice hehehe. Yep,
it’s a weird winter for us. I’m reasonably
sure that we will get our fair share of the
snow come February, but then I could
be wrong LOL. The weathermen aren’t
even sure about what will happen. They
are always guessing for the most part,
for the weather has a mind of its own :)
Our grandson Christian came over to
spend the night yesterday when we got
back from town. We spent most of the
night watching videos on Youtube as
we always do LOL. We have a couple
favorites that we like to watch together.
I think one of his main reasons that he
likes to come over here is because we
have internet and his mom doesn’t LOL.
Life in the fast lane hehehe. Anyways,
we love having him over. I just a few
minutes ago fixed us all some breakfast
and we ate. Now Christian is back at
the recliner in the living room sleeping.
I think he stayed up all night watching
videos and downloading music which
he can’t do at home. So now Judy and
I are doing our thing in here. She’s on
her computer looking for recipes. She
likes to browse and find new things to
cook. We take turns in the kitchen :)
Though most times she only cooks for
family gatherings and such. Benny and
Rocky are doing well. They’re both in
their ornery little moods hehehe. Right
now they’re bugging Judy for treats and
she ain’t given them any, because they
have eaten. I fix them two sausages a
piece when we have Eggos or pancakes.
We love them dearly, but they can get
on our nerves with their constant wants
for treats LOL. They both love to be
held and it seems that Rocky likes for
Judy to hold him also. Up until a few
weeks ago, Rocky would only let me
hold him, but now he pesters Judy for
her to hold him hehehe. If I hold either
Benny or Rocky, I will have one or the
other in the floor whining for me to pick
them up and hold them too. I don’t mind,
but I can’t hold them long. They tend to
cut off my air, being both of the together
combined weigh 50 pounds. They both
weigh 25 pounds. Yep, they’re pert near
the same size. Benny doesn’t whine much
when I hold Rocky, but he does look up
with those soulful eyes hehehe. Rocky
will raise a ruckus whining until I either
put Benny down or pick him up hehehe.
We love our boys and yes we spoil them.
Would you think not hehehe? So, it seems
that the sun has gone down and darkness
is upon us. Though the moonlight seems
to make it not so dark as it reflects off
of the snow. I know you might think me
weird, but I wish it would snow. I love
watching it snow. I don’t like it when
it gets colder than ever and puts a hard
icy shell over it though. The reflection
off it then magnifies the sunshine even
more harder to see. Anyways it sounds
like Helena, Christians mom is here to
pick him up. Time for the boy to wake
up and go home LOL. He was sleeping
really sound in there. I went in to talk
to him just shortly after we ate and he
was OUT. I pushed on him and he was
not waking up hehehe. Yep, he stayed
up all night playing, watching videos on
his tablet LOL. I am so grateful for all
the blessings that God has given me. He
is so great. I haven’t lived the way that
He would of wanted me to, but I lived
the way He allowed me to, because He
knew that lessons would be the outcome.
Not one of us has lived exactly the way
that God would want us to, but through
His Grace and His Son’s love we can be
forgiven if we will just ask sincerely.
Sin is in our genes and humanity. We
often sin before we even open our eyes
to begin the day. With just the smallest
thought a sin is born. Be grateful for
the chance to repent and make better
your life. Of course due to our human
nature, we will sin again, but His love
never fails. I can remember many times
that I found myself looking at the walls
of Hell through my mind and wondering
if I could ever find peace. God showed
me a way to move passed those days
and to use what I learned to help others.
When you’re at your lowest is when you
need to make a choice to reach up to
God or to live your life in misery. Yes
misery still finds its way into my life
from time to time, but I know what to
do to get out of it. Look for His Light.
Find the memories of goodness and let
them explode as greatness to allow you
to find greatness for the future. For if
you remember what you went through
you can also know that it can get better.
Maybe not today or tomorrow, but it
will get better. We must have faith in
God. So I reckon I need to get off of
my soapbox and begin my search for
a word or phrase that I can use for the
title of today’s brand new poem through
all that I’ve written here. 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 near the
beginning of my rambling hehehe. Now
to see if I can do anything with it LOL.
Here goes…… Wish me luck hehehe.

Previous Years

Times from passed days
come to view,
the previous years
of thereunto.
Things remembered,
good and bad,
the previous years
of which we had.
Life so abundant
fast and slow,
some with rainstorms,
some with snow.
Echoes repeating
over agin,
the previous years
remembered when.
All of our lessons
that prevail,
some seemed Heaven,
some seemed Hell.
Yet with a moment
learned from tears
lessons are gained from
previous years.

LOL there ya go. Yea, I know, it ain’t all
that good, but hey, it’s the words that came
to mind to write using that title. Believe me,
I’m always just as surprised about what I
write as you hehehe. I often have to read it
back to myself to see what I wrote :) Well,
hmm, is there anything that I’ve forgotten
to tell you. Oh yea, an update on my sister.
Peggy’s surgery went well. She is at home
now. Her kids are looking after her as well
as our mom making a trip over time to time.
Also my old bro Mark Green is needing
some prayer. He has blood clots in his legs
and his stomach. He is undergoing a lot
of surgery himself. Please keep my bro
in your prayers. Me and him began the
first grade together. We grew up together.
He’s my brother through life. We did that
little thing when we were kids. Ya know,
cutting our fingers and becoming blood
brothers hehehe. Anyways, we go back
a long way. Please God keep him and his
family under Your Loving Grace. So, that
seems to be all I can think of and now I
guess I need to be telling you what I tell
you almost every week and that is I wrote
some more poems and haiku. Yep 10
more poems with 1 of them being sort of
Christmassy. Also I wrote once again
22 haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there. I hope you can find one or two of
either or both that you like. OK, now
I believe it’s time for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish a most wonderful
weekend or whatever is left of it and a
truly blessed week. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now to find
that off switch. Hmm, I think I see a
bit of movement from behind my PC
camera. Yep, I see ya. That’s not
the greatest place to hide dude being
the camera ain’t that big hehehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

The Sky Up High

With mornings sun
and wind that blows
the sky up high
has much it shows.
The scenes we see
as oceans depth
the sky up high
will take our breath.
So much beauty
displays above
the sky up high
and flight of a dove.
As the day grows
and minutes tick on
the sky up high
shows sunshine gone.
Then the starlight
comes with the moon
the sky up high
with songs of the loon.
Night drifts onwards
till dawn is nigh
and then the sun is
in the sky so high.

Loves Display

Two hearts beating
words they say
often is with
loves display.
Ones united
gathered true
loves display can
change the view.
Sometimes eyes will
look and see
only portions
you and me.
Yet when true love
comes in frame
loves display then
changes name.
Two are beauty
joined so true
found together
with their view.

A Sideways Mind

A sorted soul
without a clue
can sometimes be
both me and you.
A sideways mind
from lack of sleep
can make a day
to seem too deep.
A sideways mind
finds many things
sights so blurred
with rainbow rings.
Maybe even
a sight that’s seen
might be found
a scary dream.
So get some rest
from time to time
to prevent the
sideways mind.

Kindred Soul

Beyond our eyes
and inner sight
a kindred soul
might then unite.
The ghost of others
gather around
sights unseen
that we have found.
A kindred soul
might one day be
a midnight sight
of which you see.
They might even
come so clear
a kindred soul
of yesteryear.
Those true spirits
of time and space
might be blessings
with God’s Grace.
Angels from Heaven
of which you know
might be of a
kindred soul.

Disgruntled Theory

Many of our notions
are found as impaired
a disgruntled theory
sometimes we’ve shared.
Finding only anger
as others will decide
a disgruntled theory
makes others collide.
When your own thinking
is left then unheard
a disgruntled theory
becomes every word.
Don’t let the ignorance
of others to chime
a disgruntled theory
that becomes your mind.
Learn to look truly
and see what is there,
a disgruntled theory
that many compare.
A disgruntled theory
that might just explode
as the truth comes alive
somewhere down the road.

Check Your Pulse

Look inside
your daily life
and try to find
what’s good or strife.
Check your pulse
of living phase.
Find the truth
within your days.
Search and find
what that exist
the real true you
or liars mist.
See what others
see in you
within a mirrored
moments view.
Check your pulse
and then decide
is this something
that you hide.
Then seek truthful
better still
what you should be
that you will.
Will you find that
you convulse
with what’s seen
as you check your pulse.

Winters While

Seasons greetings
becomes sights
with the scenes of
Christmas lights.
Red and yellow,
green and blue
winters while
becomes the view.
Christmas settings
in a yard
often are a
Christmas card.
Then as Christmas
fades away
winters while
still shows the day.
White and snowy
scenes compile
Christmas blessings
winters while.

A Thin Dose Of Truth

A liars domain
finds walls with shame
filled with deception
of what they attain.
A thin dose of truth
that began in their youth
finds ways of leading
them without ruth.
Yet as they continue
their daily lie menu
a thin dose of truth
will find ways to view.
A page in their porthole
of their weary soul
will show the deception
found in their goal.
A thin dose of truth
might show them uncouth
as time then displays
their every untruth.

Imagine A Day

Can you imagine
a day without love,
a day without passion
come from above?
Imagine a day
where life is no more
and we’re just memories
nowhere to soar.
That would be saddening
life filled with hate,
no sign of blessings
found as our fate.
Can you imagine
what life then would be
without Lord God’s help
for you and for me.
This would be awful
with no one to pray,
to help us with answers,
imagine a day.

Today’s Tomorrow

Mornings bring chances
to leave all our sorrow
found as beginnings
of today’s tomorrow.
Time becomes footsteps
needing a chance
to take you to somewhere
with better stance.
Today’s tomorrow
can be lessons growing
learning from passed days
times are bestowing.
Don’t let your night to
end filled with anger
for today’s tomorrow
might be in danger.
Find peaceful outcomes
and then go to bed
and let your tomorrows
be better fed.
Don’t allow yesterday
to shine in your window.
Find now some peace in
today’s tomorrow.

Haiku
for Jan 23, 2016

Tomorrow’s thinking
can make yesterdays better
by looking ahead.

Displays of beauty
come as turquoise rose petals
on a windy day.

An artist painting
finds a world inside his mind
found upon canvas.

A clear morning sky
shows of many beginnings
that God has given.

Belief in a myth
might seem silly to many,
but right for others.

When counting your eggs,
some might not hatch a chicken,
for they’re not fertile.

In an ocean deep
lives a world of the unknown
that holds mysteries.

Snowflakes of winter
bring forth all of their beauty
as scenes come alive.

Wasting a moment
might leave you found in despair
for then it is gone.

Organizing time
could become very boring,
for the flow is stiff.

A shower of rain
comes with life giving moments
that could turn sour.

Simplistic patterns
find ways into our lifestyles
as sunshine and rain.

Wonderful mountains
rise high in the sky afar
painting the distance.

A cloud of wonder
comes from a minute of time
that moisture compiles.

Lanterns of the night
shine brilliance in the darkness
to help us to see.

Turning right always
will turn into a circle
if you continue.

God’s distant places
found in fields of creation
will heighten the mind.

Change cannot begin
without letting loose of time
to grasp tomorrow.

Solitude awakens
with the sound of wind blowing
and peace from within,

Two hands together
can weather the storms of time
if they hold tightly.

Today’s guiding light
might seem to be a person,
but God sent them there.

Links to yesterday
are often in form of fear
that prevents movement.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

OK, so another week has passed and winter
is bearing its teeth at us in the shape of cold
and snow. Of course me being the weird one,
I don’t mind the cold and snow. I especially
don’t mind the snow. I love to watch it snow
and see the beauty unfold right before my eyes.
Yep, I guess you could say I’m a wintertime
guy. I don’t care much for summer being I
can’t handle the heat. Thank God it doesn’t
get as hot up here as it does in Texas where
I’m from :) We’ve got a winter wonderland
outside right now. It snowed a little more
yesterday (Saturday). Me and the boys had
a great time playing in the snow. I got a few
pictures of us that I’ll put in the stationery.
Yep, last week was pretty good. Judy went
over to her sister’s house yesterday and they
did their craft night. Judy made a beautiful
objet d’art that she hung on the wall beside
her. We took the boys to the vet and they
got their shots and claws clipped. Also we
got them registered. So they’re all set for
another year or so :) It seems Benny and
Rocky almost weigh the same 25 pounds :)
They are pert near the same size and all.
Yep, and when they both wanna lie in my
lap at the same time it does get a bit hard
to breathe hehehe. Judy snapped a few
pictures of them both lying in my lap the
other day and a few with Rocky and I
together as we both nodded off while in
the chair LOL. My neck never forgave
me for that one hehehe. Right now it’s
nice and peaceful in here as I write, being
Judy has gone back to bed to rest for a
while and she took the boys with her so
they would not be bothering me. They
are both lying at the end of the bed and
Judy is sound asleep. I’m supposed to
wake her up when North Woods Law
comes on at 8 PM. I’ve got a enough
time to get this journal finished before
then I think, It’s 6:42 right now hehehe.
It is almost too quiet in here. I’m used
to the boys trying to get my attention :)
It looks like though that they have both
gone to sleep as well. I walked through
to go to the bathroom and Rocky raised
his head, but then he laid it right back
down and closed his eyes. Benny didn’t
even open his eyes LOL. They don’t
get much sleep due to me and of course
I don’t get much sleep either hehehehe,
being I spend 85 percent of my time
going to the restroom LOL. That’s
life without a colon or colostomy bag.
Not much sleep, but after 2 decades
of it, I’ve grown to accept it and cat
nap when I can, which explains me
sleeping in my chair holding Rocky :)
Life could always be worse, but I’ve
got so many blessings here with me
I cannot count them. They make my
problems easier to deal with. NOT
easy by no means, but easier hehehe.
Judy loves me truly even with all of
my health issues. The boys love me
unconditionally. What more could a
man want? Yep, I count myself as
very lucky and blessed even with all
of the problems. Judy and I have our
moments that things go astray, but
we’ve learned to forgive and look at
the good. I love her not only as my
wife, but as my best friend. We are
there for each other when one of us
is having a bad day. The boys also
help us with their little wagging tails
and smiling faces. It’s not about the
things you haven’t got, because if you
look around you might find you have
more than many. Of course I know of
many that are totally hurting. I wish
I could help them, but that’s where
prayer comes in and God sends what
they need. Maybe not what they’re
wanting, but what they need. I have
had many times in my life that if I
had gotten what all I was wanting
I would have wound up dead, but
then as I look back I saw where God
gave me what I needed at the time
to get where I needed to be. Though
much was about me accepting His
help and not just sidestepping His
will. Yes sir, I’ve screwed up more
times than I can count, but I lived
to,learn, thank God. Don’t become
so stubborn that you look passed
the will of God. Now I guess it’s time
for me to be taking my little journey
back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find a good word
or phrase that I can use for the title
of today’s brand new poem. So it’s
away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I’ve
found a good title near the beginning
of my rambling hehehe. Now to see
if I can do anything with it LOL 😉
Here goes nothing, hehehe maybe.

Near The Same

The days ahead
that times attain
might at times
seem near the same.
Yet the ticking
clock on the wall
might show the times
much different than all.
For near the same
a heart might beat
without the sight
of their defeat.
The truth is found
sometimes inside
where near the same
will choose to hide.
Life brings portions
lose and gain
maybe seeming
near the same.
Yet a lifestyle
here and there
near the same
does not compare.
We’re all different
you and I
and near the same
does not apply.
We have struggles
times record
and near the same
needs our sweet Lord.
Jesus walked on
through His life
near the same
with pain and strife.
So remember
now and then
that near the same
is within Him.
He understands
your day and time
for near the same
His day did find.
Let Him help you
find some peace
near the same
through His release.

OK, there ya go. I hope it made a little
sense to ya. Yeppers, I can remember
times that I felt so alone that I would be
amongst many people and still feel alone.
It helps when you are not around others
just to be there and not being happy with
being with yourself. I know that feeling
all too well. Though years have passed
and I’ve learned to allow others to know
me. Let others to know you and don’t
hide behind a wall of shame. Hehehe
Sorry, It seems I took off on the road
to Rambles Ville again HUH hehehehe.
Ok so I have a prayer request for my
sister Peggy. Her cancer came back
and she is going through treatments
again. Please continue to pray for her.
I love ya sis and if you ever need me,
give me a call. I know I’m many miles
away, but I am with you in spirit :)
Ok now, 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 one of them being
to my beloved brown eyed wife and
another a kind of sort of Christmas
poem hehehe. I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there. I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like. Now it’s
time for me to be searching for that
not so elusive off switch, but not
before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a blessings filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too :)
Now to find that cantankerous off
switch that is the worst and hiding
than I’ve ever seen or not seen LOL.
Where Oh where can you be hiding
ya little bugger. LOL I think I see
ya. Trying to hide behind my tissues
that I used to stop the bleeding from
my broken nose huh. Well you need
to change your color to red then LOL.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S.
Oh yea, I forgot to tell you that I
tripped over Rocky Thursday and I fell
into a folding chair and broke my nose.
It bled all over the place. Good thing
is, that I broke my nose a long time ago
and I since then have had a little trouble
breathing through my nose, but it seems
that this fall has reset my nose and I can
BREATHE without any trouble YEAH :)

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

Disturbed Reality

When time finds conclusions
through all that we see,
the moments that display
show disturbed reality.
Seconds we have counted
might seem to unwind
and become disturbed reality
as times on our mind.
The truth is often found
in days later read
with memories awakened
of what’s done and said.
The true disturbed reality
is often in a dream
that turns into nightmares
with times in-between.
So to find some peace in
those times that you see
find the lessons within the
disturbed reality.

Beyond Tomorrow

Today brings a glimpse of
tomorrow’s to see,
but often that tomorrow
is not what will be.
For even beyond tomorrow
the changes are made
with the way that things go
in life’s lemonade.
For beyond tomorrow is
time continued changing
with our previous thoughts
and how it’s rearranging.
Even the weather man
cannot truly say
that tomorrow and beyond
will be a great day.
For it might show sunshine
or raindrops or snow
when on beyond tomorrow
the minutes bestow.
So don’t let your worrying
of all tomorrow’s sights
to become all you see
as nows days and nights.

Snowy Skies

As winter continues
displaying so true,
its own arrangement
of all that we view,
the skies fill with wonder
with snow falling down,
landing in the places
without not a sound.
Yet the winds blowing
dispersing the flakes
land near some children
where a snowman awakes.
Then as the snowman
stands big and strong
the snowy skies find then
winds continue on.
Scenes are created
as Maine’s apple pies
some as snow ice cream
from snowy skies.

Storms Will Cease

Portions of storm clouds
might display fear,
but then some others
have a rainbow appear.
True that in a storm
you might be afraid,
of all of the things that
a storm might degrade.
Yet storms will cease
as time goes its way
and then with the sunshine
be a brand new day.
Yes, we will suffer
and yes we will fall,
but God sends His angels
to watch over all.
We might not see them
those angels of love,
but they might be friends
sent from Lord God above.
They might be someone
you see every day
to help in the moments
that you’re feeling gray.
So yes storms will cease
and rainbows will come
with the strength of Lord God
through Jesus His Son.

The Simple Times

Those time long ago
when I was so young
I saw a different day
with a new setting sun.
A saw many moments
riding my bike
doing all the things
of many alike.
Playing with my friends
as each day would pass
the simple times went by
way too fast.
Walking through the woods
nowhere intended,
seeking for a sight
of pathways extended.
Those nights sat out looking
up at the moon
while hearing whip-poor-wills
singing their tune.
Even an owls song
is sung as if rhymes
with the sound of the wind
in the simpler times.
I remember clearly
those times long ago
the simpler things
that now does not know.
Now’s just confusion
with things that I see,
not the simpler times
from my history.
I often dream of
those greater designs
found in my childhood
the simple times.
A toy truck to play with
not a Xbox or Wii
and not a playstation,
I climbed a tree.
Yes the simple times
were playing out doors
not on a gameboy
sat in the floors.
I played a few games
Yahtzee and Uno
along with some Checkers
as time seemed to flow.
Those times I remember
now live in my heart
yes, the simple times
were the best work of art.
The days now display
only technology
with playstation, gameboy
Xbox and Wii.
With many others
that come into frame
losing the perspective
from where that we came.

Door To The Heart

Pathways to true love,
Heaven shall start
entered with God’s Will,
door to the heart.
When through a heartbreak
some baggage is gained
God can bring peaceful,
timeless attained.
The door to the heart
is a wonderful thing,
found as a blessing
joyful to sing.
Time might show sadness
as days move along,
but time can begin your
sight of new dawn.
Allowing God’s blessings
to do the best part
will allow some true love
in the door to the heart.

Winter To Spring

Winter brings stories
of Christmastimes joy
that of a little girl
or little boy.
Winter brings phases
of seasons delight
glimmers of snowfall
each day and night.
Winter brings changes
found in the phases
then comes springtime
with mornings daisies.
Winter to spring is
time counted on
found as the snowflakes
until they’re gone.
Each day with wonders
paintings of God
winter to spring needs
greatest applaud.
For as the seasons
show birds that sing
there are the blessings
winter to spring.

Lost In Your Eyes

My heart starts racing
each time I see
your brown eyes gazing
right here at me.
I get lost in your eyes
and lose track of time
as I’m found gazing
yours within mine.
Your eyes just glisten
with starlight so sweet
that is like candy
that I wish to eat.
Time ceases moving
with my eyes on you.
You make the seasons
much greater the view.
I find your beauty
that of the skies
when I am here now
lost in your eyes.

To Judy Ann Pearce
From William Earl Pearce II

Clinging To Then

Past is a story
that many hold to,
not allowing now days
into their view.
Some make yesterdays
all that they see
when the future holds more
than their history.
The future can grow
a better display
from what you do
in now and today.
Clinging to then
will just hold you back
and not allow now
to finds ways on track.
So release yesterdays
heartbreak and sin,
for baggage grows larger
clinging to then.

Left-Ways Meets Right

Directions perception
of day unto night
find their connections
left-ways meets right.
Time becomes seconds
minutes are counted
left -ways meets right as
more are surmounted.
So many portholes
open and close
leaving the choices
many have chose.
Each scene of fragments
finds its own place
within the time frame
of its time and space.
Life is a doorway
that goes day to night
giving the choices
left-ways meets right.

Haiku
for Jan 15, 2016

Life is a journey
that finds many perceptions
as time moves along.

As springtime arrives
it shows life awakening
in colors abloom.

Fragrance of winter
is of a cold morning breeze
often with snowflakes.

A lavender sky
comes as the days expressions
from clouds far away.

Lost in a circle
that seems as never-ending
might have some lessons.

Living in a dream
might awaken some nightmares
in reality.

Destined emotions
often come as confusion
to describe ourselves.

A bluebonnets bloom
is a Texas memory
that lives in my heart.

A field of flowers
becomes a great photograph
that ones have taken.

Beyond the forest
lives an unknown desire
that holds mysteries.

A free floating leaf
finds its home in the distance
landing on the ground.

When closing a door
it does not end the chances,
but allows others.

Many descriptions
of our problems to others
might seem as pointless.

A billowy cloud
can turn dark in an instance
with raindrops to fall.

A wormhole of space
might unlock a mystery
beyond perception.

Sitting in a field
some aromas of flowers
might engulf your mind.

A true friend of time
will stay your friend no matter
what life throws your way.

Pets that passed on
wait for us at Rainbow Bridge
to leave for Heaven.

The roads we travel
might have some misdirection’s
that lead us astray.

Nowhere is somewhere
being wherever you are
is surely somewhere.

Losing a loved one
gives a way for their spirit
to be where you are.

A dogs compassion
might not be perceived by us,
but they understand.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Here I am once again with possibly another
bit of rambling to put you to sleep LOL. It’s
36 F degrees and a bit rainy outside right now.
My PC weather program says we might get a
little snow this week, but I’ll believe that when
I see it hehehe. This has been totally one of the
strangest winters that I can remember. As I
recall, we have always had snow to be falling
and below freezing temperatures beginning in
December, but we have quite a few days with
it above freezing here lately as we do right now.
Oh well, it might make up for it later on in the
month LOL. In any sense, there is tons of the
white stuff outside right now, but much of it is
mostly just ice that’s white LOL. Hehehe, yes
I know, that is what snow is, but this is not
fluffy by no means of the word LOL. It’s just
ice. I’ve had to go out with the snow shovel
and clean up the dogs poop land mines and
toss them aside. These boys have been doing
a whole lot of pooping hehehe. I just wish
they would not do it where everyone walks 😉
Ok, so off of that EWW topic hehehe. Now
it’s onto a hopefully less EWW topic. It’s
been a rather slow week for us. Judy and
I did though buy 6 POWERBALL tickets.
LOL we won 4 dollars YEAH. Like we had
a chance. Hey it could happen, maybe LOL.
Those are the very first lottery tickets that
I have ever bought for myself. I bought some
for my dad for a Christmas prank years ago,
but never for myself. I always figured if I
don’t spend my hard earned money on those
wishful dreams, I would have won and had
money to eat. I know of many that wasted
their paychecks on those things and ended
up having to borrow money to eat and that
in my book is stupid. I had one friend that
I worked with years ago that used to buy
5 scratch off tickets ever day. LOL I used
to call them scratch and sniff hehehe. He
came in one day and said I WON and I
said how much did you win Jay? He said
50 bucks and I said how many tickets did
you have to buy to win that 50 bucks and
he started figuring and said well I almost
came out even LOL. Anyways, you see
my point. So, back to the POWERBALL.
It seems that no one won it this time either.
We are going use the 4 dollar that we won
and buy 2 more tickets LOL. Hey roll it
over. You never know, we could win maybe.
So it’s onto another realm of our existence.
It seems that most of our favorite programs
to watch on TV are at their season breaks.
We’ve been just drifting around on the
TV channels trying to find something good
to watch in the mean time. Would you
believe it, 250 channels and nothing good
to watch aside from maybe the Weather
Channel LOL. I forgot for a moment that
it was Sunday, but when I started thinking
of what we could watch on TV it hit me :)
Hey Judy, it’s Sunday and I better get
started writing hehehe. That’s the life of
a retired person. Every day seems as the
same. I no longer look forward to Fridays
and get depressed when Monday comes
a dawning LOL. Every freaking day is
the same hehehe. Oh well, that’s life in
a nut shell for a person like me that many
think of as a nut LOL. Yes I can be silly
at times, or nutty if you will. That’s what
makes life more enjoyable. Not taking
things too serious that might be just a
moment that has fallen off of the shelf :)
I try my best to not let things get to me,
but sometimes they catch me off of my
game. I tend to drive Judy bunkers with
my silly thoughts and songs that I make
up off of the top of my head. I do have
a bizarre mind. Ask Judy, she’ll tell ya :)
Judy says that she would miss my weird
thinking if I were to go away hehehe.
I consider it one of my many gifts from
God. Judy is definitely one of my best
gifts. My daughter and granddaughter
are also some of my best gifts. My mom
and dad were gifts from the beginning
to show me right from wrong and they
are still some of the greatest gifts, for
even my dad being not of the living is
still my guide as his spirit watches over
me always giving me little nudges here
and there. My dad is alive in spirit as
he is my angel from Heaven. I’m sure
we have many angels watching over Judy
and I. Even Milo is watching over us
and is often more than likely playing
with Benny and Rocky for we cannot see
sometimes what or who they are looking
at and playing with. Life is a mystery
that comes into focus as we breathe our
last breath of life into our Earthly bodies.
Let God live with you and show you
the correct paths to take. Sure you
will have bumpy rides, but often those
bumpy rides are necessary to give
us the lessons that we will need in the
future. So now I believe it’s time for
me to cease my rambling and look
back on all that I’ve written here to
see if I can find a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title of today’s
brand new poem. With that, it’s away
I go to that place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I found a fairly decent
title just a little ways back. So now
I need to see if I can write anything
worth reading using it LOL. Here goes.

Silly Thoughts

Thinking of a minute,
a moments surprise
some silly thoughts
might find peoples eyes.
Thoughts of illusions
various to see
are silly thoughts
in time frames from me.
Silly bits of wording
or a face altered way
might bring a laugh or two
to you one day.
Silly thoughts arrival
might give you a smile
that you have needed
for a long while.
So don’t be so quick to
think ones as crazy
for their minds might be
anything but lazy.
A silly thought emotion
might be from Lord God
to help you in a moment
that you’re feeling flawed.

LOL so there ya go. I know, it ain’t that
great, but that was what came to me and
in a matter of maybe 5 minutes, I think it
was pretty good if I don’t say so myself 😉
Yes, I write fast. It’s always been how my
thoughts come to me. I never have a clue
to what I will write even while looking at the
title, but I just start writing and it all comes
together. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my
rambling and hopefully even the poem LOL.
If not, then I am so sorry hehehe. Maybe
next week :) I went in to get me and Judy
a soda water and Benny was barking at
something. I went in the living room where
he was sitting on the recliner barking at
Milo’s ashes that are sat atop of the TV.
They say dogs can see spirits that we can’t
see and he might of been looking at him
for all I know. I do believe in ghost and
spirits. Even the bible speaks of them.
I don’t fear them but only allow good and
peaceful spirits in our home. Milo is a
part of our home and he will always be
our family. So if Benny is enjoying the
visit from his big brother, I think that’s
great. Ok so I reckon I need to hush up
before I get caught up in rambles ville
again hehehe. Now I believe it’s time
for me to tell you what I tell you almost
every week and that is, I wrote some
more poems and haiku. Yep, 10 more
poems and 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there. I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like. I guess now I need to see if I can
find that darned off switch :) , but not
before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and a
truly blessing filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. OK,
so where are ya hiding this time ya silly
varmint? Where can that off switch
be hiding hmm? Wait a minute, I see
ya you little whippersnapper hehehe.
Trying once again to hide behind my
tiny salt shaker has never worked for
you in the past. Why do you continue
to try to hide behind it? You silly thing.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

Scenes Within Scenes

A cloud floating by
brings changes within
scenes within scenes
for more to begin.
Some look like people
we’ve seen time to time
and many scenes display
a different design.
A stage set for building
a dream essence way
scenes within scenes
of our day after day.
Scenes slowly changing
from daylight to dark
give stages of sightings
that we can remark.
Scenes within scenes
with turnstiles to find
often as images
that are inside our mind.
A cloud that is floating
might glisten with gleams
pictures with portholes
scenes within scenes.

Inside Right Now

This moment’s minutes
connect to the past
and also the future
within its contrast.
For inside right now
holds seconds to count
future and passed days
now to surmount.
Now gives the chances
to learn what you can
from what was gathered
a good or bad plan.
Then as the future
is found in our sight
inside right now then
can make it right.
So use those passed days
to help show you how,
so to make better then
inside right now.

The Smallest Thought

Agitated thinking
can start a fire
inside of your mind
with wrongful desire.
The smallest thought
can become so large
allowing the wrongful
to then take charge.
For with a seed
of a flowers design
it can grow thorns
inside of your mind.
The fuel for disaster
is held in a hand
with the smallest thought
you don’t understand.
Often our wantings
are better not bought,
for they might be troubles
from the smallest thought.

New Life Begun

With breathes of time
and moments passed,
a new life begun
is our shadows cast.
Chances for changes
from what all we’ve done
displays the glimmer
a new life begun.
Simmering passed days
need to cool down
allowing the future
with lesser a frown.
Look with new eyes
and see what can be
a new life begun
from our history.
Lose all your prejudice
past setting sun
and look with new eyes
a new life begun.

He Never Fails

When we are weak
and cannot walk more
God will then enter
if you will implore.
For He never fails
to be there for you,
but often it’s us
that creates the view.
He never fails us
though we might not see
how God has sent angels
to you and to me.
The times that came
which left us so dry
might be the times
we’ve ceased to try.
No, He never fails us,
but we lose our way
and that’s when we need to
take time to pray.
Let God to help you
to find your way back,
for He can then help you
to get back on track.

The Lighthouse Of Time

Motions of oceans
of waves rolling on,
the lighthouse of time
displays dusk to dawn.
Rocks in the distance
jagged and true
the lighthouse of time
will protect you.
Found as an echo
of friendships delight
the lighthouse of time
is there in plain sight.
Yet many waves will
come and destroy
your sight for a moment
as friends say ahoy.
The lighthouse of time
is there as a friend
to help when your weak
with time to transcend.
A friend as an angel
sent there from God
as the lighthouse of time
to help you abroad.
Sometimes surroundings
might seem as a haze,
but the lighthouse of time
can show better days.

Sands Of An Hourglass

Each grain that falls
from the minutes that pour
sands of a an hourglass
show their contour.
Pouring down slowly,
but some wish to hurry
thus bringing patience
into such a flurry.
Sands of an hourglass
might seem too slow,
but to some others
fast as they flow.
Our time is a moment
that has just a frame
called by so many
a different name
Our lives are as grains
to fall in their place
sands of an hourglass
found with our face.
Scenes that are displayed
time frames to pass
minutes are then
sands of an hourglass.

Awakened Thoughts

Yesterdays thinking
is not now the same.
Time has awakened
a different frame.
Awakened thoughts
lessons learned
showed me times
how I discerned.
Yesterdays thinking
found from desire
often but only
stoked troubles fire.
So many problems
come from our wants
becoming later
what all that haunts.
So as the beacons
of time shows its cost
you might find one day
awakened thoughts.

Wings Of Silence

A bird in flight
in the sky of blue
surely looks down
with a different view.
Wings of silence
floating with ease
in the sky so blue
above the trees,
It gives a song
in winds romance
wings of silence
song and dance.
The bird looks down
and gives a smile
while it flies
another mile.
Wings of silence
show their grace
seeming as
an angels face.

Silent Joy

A child without
a voice to speak
might display
what it might seek.
A silent joy
without a word
is found with signs
that are not heard.
A hopeful dream
to say and hear
a silent joy
could disappear.
Look beyond
what words you find
for some can’t
with words entwine.
Some can’t hear
or speak their name,
but try their best
to say the same.
So if someone
that you know
cannot speak
or hear you so,
look for light
inside their eyes
and speak to them
with loves device.
Let them know
that God is there
for silent joy
to kneel in prayer.

Haiku
for Jan 9, 2016

Today is anew
giving chances for better
and learning from old.

Wintertime’s snowflakes
bring their solitude to Earth
and paint it with peace.

Scents of lavender
are expelled into the air
as the flowers bloom.

Spring is but a dream
that wintertime’s awaiting,
as its winds will blow.

Fashioning snowflakes
is what billows from the clouds
as they fall to Earth.

Belief in journeys
gives meaning to the displays
as they are changing.

Disgruntled people
will often look for the bad,
instead of the good.

Life’s aforementioned
could become your destiny
if it’s not let go.

Links to family
only connect through the blood
and not our actions.

A simple flower
can change someone’s existence
when given through love.

Sought after seasons
often lead ones to forget
the beauty of now.

Various turnstiles
will seem to have the right room,
but with exceptions.

Nows desperation
can cause a whirlwind to form
and become problems.

Seasonal flowers
will show themselves and then die
as seeds will catch wind.

A treeless forest
holds no truth to existence
other than its roots.

Rivers of snowflakes
hold their pathways underneath
as melting of snow.

The sands of moments
flow as the scenes that we see
and often record.

An ocean has words
that roar upon the coastline
and then disappear.

Change is a value
that presents itself as chance
that many don’t use.

Mornings decisions
can make or break the future,
so use them wisely.

Grinding gears of life
could leave you standing empty
without any gears.

The suns arrival
shows sights of a brand new day
to choose your pathway.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Happy New Year
&
Belated Merry Christmas

Well, I’m back. Sorry about not posting
last week, but we were still spending time
with family. It was after all Christmastime.
My daughter and granddaughter made it
up and we had a great time. I didn’t want
it to end, but they had to go back to Texas.
They had a rough time in travels with their
flights being canceled due to weather and
all, but they made it home after having to
wait for what might of seemed an eternity
at Chicago O’Hare Airport. Their flight
was canceled first at Boston Airport, but
got an earlier flight. I’m sure they were
tired campers when they finally got home.
We did get a lot of great pictures of us all
together. LOL we even got some Claus
family photos being Jamye brought her
elf outfit. We spent Christmas with all of
the family over at Judy’s sister Trudy’s
house Christmas Day. There was good
food and games to play. I took Jamye
on a little sightseeing trip up north of us.
We went to BigRock Ski Resort and
watched the skiers while taking a few
pictures and videos of them. We then
went to the Governor’s Restaurant and
enjoyed some good food. I wish they
could have stayed longer. Sunday the
27th, when they came by for one last
visit it had begun snowing and Jamye
and Sami had a snowball fight hehehe.
It was the best Christmas ever and I
didn’t want it to end. Oops let me do
a little back tracking here hehehehe.
My granddaughter Sami and I did a
little music video together with her
playing the guitar and me of course
on my conga drums. She’s getting
good on the guitar. I think the video
came out pretty good. Time seemed
to pass faster than normal. I wish I
could rewind and enjoy those moments
again. God willing, they will make it
up again one day. That would be the
best. They did manage to see a white
Christmas even if it wasn’t snowing,
being it had snowed the day before
they got here and there was still a lot
of snow on the ground. LOL we took
our Claus family photos of us out in
the snow. Claus family photos means
I was wearing my Santa suit and Judy
was wearing her Mrs. Claus dress :)
and yes Jamye was wearing her elf
outfit. Sami just wore what she had
on hehehe. She had a Santa hat on
in one picture though. Yep, we had
a great time. I hope that because of all
the flight problems Jamye’s not afraid
to come back and see us. Judy and I
went over to her sister’s house for New
Years Eve and we played games until
about 11 PM and we made it home in
time to watch the ball drop to welcome
in the new year. We brought Christian
home with us to spend a few days. We
spent much of the night watching Youtube
videos as we did the next 2 nights LOL.
His mom is here now to take him home.
It seems our grandson loves to hang
out with Grandpa and Grandma hehehe.
I think I will have to pause here so that
Judy and I can head to Town to go to
Walmart and buy me some more sodas.
I have 2 Mountain Dews left, due to
it being Christians favorite soda too :)
I’ll be back in a bit to finish this……….
I’m back. Oh yea I forgot to mention
what the boys did for New years LOL.
They took down the Christmas tree and
tried to eat the tinsel hehehe. Needless
to say it was tinsel town in the living
room hehehe. So Judy and I cleaned up
their mess and picked up the tree and
put it away. They didn’t break any of
the ornaments which is a miracle if you
ask me LOL. Normally we leave the tree
up for a few months after Christmas LOL.
I guess they figured it was time to come
down hehehe. Yep, it looks like the new
year is gonna be a wild one if that’s any
indication 😉 It snowed a little bit today
and it’s supposed to snow a little tonight.
It’s supposed to be a high of 11 F Monday
and -1 by Tuesday morning which isn’t
too bad for this time of year. Judy and
I are thankful for the blessings of love
that fills our home. We have each other
and our 2 little boys to wake up to each
day and be glad. Yet, we do know that
these times are only limited, so we’re
thankful that God answers prayer and
heals our hearts when we lose a loved
one. God helps us through prayer as
He gives what we need that we cannot
get or do for ourselves. Thank You
God, for Your love and patience that
You have, for You allow us to strive
in our own directions so to learn to
look in Your Way for guidance when
we have lost our way. So, I reckon 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 of today’s
brand new poem and so it’s away I go
to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I may have found a
decent title about halfway through the
journal, but now I’ve gotta see if I
can write anything that makes any
sense using it LOL. Here goes….

Again One Day

Another time,
another place
again might be
repeated race.
Yet some moments
do not come,
times unique
a beating drum.
Again one day
might seem to be,
but be changed
by history.
Minutes recorded
timeless things
might just be
your wanted dreams.
Use what good
that comes your way,
for it my not
again one day.
The chances now
are great to find
a little girl
a learning mind.
A boy grows old
and moves from home
again one day
you’re all alone.
Use the moments
God gives you
to again one day
be great to view.
Moments heightened
in a way
from a photo
again one day.
The past is gone
and can’t return,
again one day
might seem to burn.
So don’t let
the grass to grow,
again one day
with bitter woe.

Ok, so there ya go. It’s not a New Years
poem, but can be construed as one hehehe.
I hope you enjoyed my rambling and maybe
even the poem hehehe. Judy and I have our
TV schedule line up for the night to watch.
I bookmarked the Youtube videos that we
were watching with Christian. So when he
comes next time we’ll pick up where we left
off :) I hope you had a safe and happy New
Years EVE or DAY. We didn’t do a lot :)
Neither of us likes to do fireworks and we
don’t drink, so we just enjoyed playing some
games with family and then coming home
to spend time together. I’m thankful that
Judy and I have many of the same likes
and dislikes. We do have our differences,
but then no two people have every single
thing about them the same and yes that
includes twins and whatnot. Judy is not
the same as her twin sister Trudy. They
have different personalities. I have not
seen 2 twins that are exactly alike in their
actions and thoughts. Even mirror twins
have their differences. God made us each
one uniquely. So, I guess before I begin
rambling in 5th gear again, I better tell
you what I tell you almost every week
and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems,
but 3 of them are Christmas poems this
week. Also I wrote 22 more haiku for
all of the haiku lovers out there. I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like. Now I believe it’s time for me
to begin my search for that not so elusive
off switch, but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend or whatever
is left of it and a blessings filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do
too. Now, where is that dad burned
off switch hiding this time? LOL, you
have gotta be kidding! Hiding in my
box of Cordial Cherries hehehehehe.
Hard to fit huh, being I’ve only eaten
1 or 2 of them. You couldn’t squeeze
in enough to keep me from seeing ya
huh? Well, guess what dude hehehe,
Gotcha, see ya zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S
The last Christmas poem titled
Remembering Christmas is to my
daughter and granddaughter.
Love you bunches <3

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

Total Chill Out

The cold of winter
finds its voyage
total chill out
to take charge.
Scenes as white as
Heavens face
finds their forms
most every place.
In the snow
found on the ground
total chill out
now is found.
The cold of winter
oh so new
now is our own
daily view.
Scenes as paintings
far and wide
total chill out
takes a ride.

Beyond Perspective

As Christmas passes
leaving traces
many still have
smiling faces.
Beyond perspective
though some find
memories tarnished
Christmastime.
Many not seeing
what that’s true
not the gifts
ones give to you.
It’s about Jesus
and of giving
sharing blessings
that He’s living.
Beyond perspective
look to find
a more thankful
Christmas mind.

Waves Of Life

A page found turning
good and strife
is our oceans
wave of life.
Different moments
come to be
waves of life
for you and me.
Waves found cresting
oh so high
often making
moments fly.
Waves of life
might surely grow
into goodness
Christmas snow.
Letting Jesus
end your strife
with His blessings
waves of life.
Christmas wishful
can come true
waves of life
for you to view.
So let Christmas
live and breathe
with sweet Jesus

Cherished Memories

Within but a doorway
a footstep is made
cherished while walking
in life’s lemonade.
Seen in the windows
of yesterdays mind
cherished memories
will surely unwind.
Sometimes the pathways
will become real bumpy
making us daily to
become so jumpy.
Yet within moments
a smile might be seen
found as an echo
of a faraway dream.
Life can become better
as budding of leaves
spawned from the times
of cherished memories.

Lengthening Shadows

Glimmers of hopeful
as shadows display
become the portholes
to day after day.
Lengthening shadows
stretching so far
become the pathways
to how that we are.
Some find blessings
and some find despair
from all the shadows
that ones will compare.
Long winding journeys
to places unknown
find many standing
with peace all alone.
Some though are only
with sadness that grows
due to their lifestyle
of lengthening shadows.
They need to open
their hearts full of prayer
to lengthening shadows
of God’s love and care.

The High Ridges

Peaked of our pleasure
with seasons delight,
the high ridges painted
become a great sight.
Portions of hopeful
poured into tomorrow
becomes the high ridges
to see less of sorrow.
Looking passed yesterday
seeing today
the high ridges form
to a greater display.
Hope found in Jesus
and blessings we find
the high ridges show
a much better design
Sure we will falter
and might lose our way,
but high ridges hopeful
will come as we pray.
Then as our problems
come with a grind
we’ll find the high ridges
with a more peaceful mind.

A New Day Is Done

Morning brings changes
in form of our eyes
seen as a new day
to see brand new skies.
A new day is started
as minutes tick on
while nighttime is finished
to display the dawn.
Then as the morning
shows new things to see
the day becomes moments
of our history.
Found as a memory
sought through a time
a new day is done
with more then to find.
Evening grows closer
as nighttime’s begun
then what you have is
a new day is done.

A Year Has Passed

The past taught many
as some looked away
while a year has passed
to another fine day.
A better tomorrow
can come shining through
if we will stop fighting
the way that we do.
Find some agreements
this new year and time
and let peace to blossom
inside of your mind.
A year has passed
with shadows of hate.
Let us not to make that
become as our trait.
Find common ground
in the lives you see
a year has passed
so let be what will be.
Don’t let your grudges
to stay on your mind,
a year has passed
let’s love all man kind.

Remembering Christmas

It was a Christmas
I’ll always remember
a wonderful time
the best of December.
My daughter Jamye
and granddaughter too
came up to see us,
but now I am blue.
My granddaughter Sami
brought joy to my eyes
as we played music
that seemed as a prize.
I love them both dearly
and wish we could be
here now together
for more times to see,
but they had to leave
and I hold dear to heart
this special Christmas
as God’s work of art.
I hope that they’ll one day
come back to share
another grand Christmas
with God’s love and care.
Remembering Christmas
is now on my mind
a wonderful moment
I found Christmastime.

In So New

A new year comes
and gives a smile
bringing in
another while.
In so new then
time begins
a year of hopeful
laughs and grins.
The days might seem
as just the same,
but with maybe
a different name,
but in so new
there’s a way
to make good
another day.
Let this new year
end the war
finding peaceful
near and far.

Haiku
for Dec 30, 2015

Life is a journey
that many misinterpret
and fall prey to lies.

Lessons are a stride
which often comes our problems
real hard to hurdle.

Glimmers of hopeful
fall as a snowflake so white
that floats in the breeze.

A wind challenged bloom
attempts hold its place in time,
but winter will win.

Breathing in a breath
does not guarantee a life
if there is no pulse.

The darkness of night
might hold many mysteries
that are illusions.

As the Earth might quake
it might also be talking
telling of its pain.

Legions of problems
could become all that we see
if we allow them.

Found in the sunrise
are chances for a new day
to find a new start.

A tiny snowflake
falls at first all by itself
and then it finds friends.

Close-minded people
fail to see what’s possible
when two minds connect.

Winters arrival
comes as a window’s opened
to allow snowflakes.

A concert of life
brings forth many changing views
that need harmony.

A moments memoirs
might become as tarnished thoughts
that should of been good.

Lost in a blizzard
you might think that it’s useless,
but hope is in God.

A cup full of peace
can water many people
if done with Jesus.

Donning your armor
to head out to cause trouble
could cause your demise.

Clouds floating above
might hold a wonderful view
that only you see.

New years arrival
brings chances for a better life,
that must start in you.

As winter grabs hold
it lashes out with fury
that often seems nice.

A surfing snowflake
skims across tomorrow land
to create its art.

Our kindred spirits
watch over us as angels
sent from God above.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
&
MERRY CHRISTMAS

This winter has gotten off to a slow start and
by the looks of things we might not have a white
Christmas unless the weather makes changes.
I am still wishing for snow.  If we don’t have
snow it will be the first time since we moved up
here December 2007 that we haven’t had snow
for Christmas.  I’m hoping for snow even more
so being my daughter and granddaughter are
coming up for Christmas and they want to see
a white Christmas.  If it doesn’t snow,  there
might still be some snow on the ground that’s
left over from earlier hopefully.  No matter I’m
sure we will have a great Christmas.  I’m sure
we will take tons of pictures.  Right now there
is still a lot of snow outside and 25 F degrees.
Judy just got up and came in here with me and
the boys.  Benny heard her in the bedroom and
started barking LOL.  I stopped for a moment
to fix Judy,  I and the boys some breakfast just
a bit ago,  but had to wash dishes first.  While
I was washing,  Benny started barking again
telling me someone was driving up and it was
Helena,  Judy’s youngest daughter.  Her and
her son Christian came for a visit.  So it looks
like breakfast will have to wait.  I’ll stop here
so I can go and visit with them.  I’ll be back :)
OK,  so they are gone and I got back started
making us breakfast.  It was rather hard to
do,  being my potassium level must of gone
way down making me real shaky.  I dropped
2 eggs and another ended up with the yolk on
the napkin and shell in the egg cracking cup.
LOL,  I did though finally manage to get us
some waffles,  eggs and sausage cooked.  We
were both getting a little shaky.  Hers from
her diabetes and mine from my potassium
level not able to be normal due to my lack
of a colon and the fact that my body since
birth will not retain potassium.  OH well,  I
got us fed and we’re both functioning back at
our normal again hehehe.  Now back to the
journal.  It’s 22 F degrees right now at 5 PM.
There’s a slight chance for snow tomorrow.
Who knows,  the weather might throw us a
curve ball and switch to a more winterish
theme.  Of course,  in Texas where I’m from
this is more than a winterish theme,  but not
for up here.  Benny and Rocky had a great
visit with their cousin Khione,  Helena’s and
Christian’s dog.  I had all three jumping up
in my lap at different intervals.  Khione and
Rocky ended up in my lap at the same time
for a bit.  Judy took pictures of them hehehe.
I sat in the floor in front of our Christmas
tree and then had all three dogs sitting with
me.  Judy took a number of pictures of that.
Me in my pj’s,  red of course LOL.  So what
did you think Santa Bill would be wearing?
Judy spent all last night baking cookies for
Christmas.  I think she plans on doing more
baking tonight.  More cookies :)  We love
Christmas.  We’ve been watching Christmas
movies every day.  I’ve got Christmas music
playing in the bedroom right now.  Right now
Mama Kissing Santa Claus is playing hehehe.
So,  what else is going on around this place?
Judy’s daughter gave us an early Christmas
gift and of course Judy couldn’t wait to open
it hehehe.  It was a beautiful picture with the
words,  Family:  The ones you live with, laugh
with & love. Judy just took down one of our
old pictures and put it in place of it.  It’s very
pretty.  Judy and I are anxious for Jamye
and Sami as well as Jamye’s boyfriend Brian
and his son P.J. to get up here.  Jamye asked
me if we still had our Santa suits and I told
her yes.  I bought them a  while back.  She
said she’s got an elf costume and she’s going
to get one for Sami.  She want’s us to take
a Claus Family photo hehehe.  Helena said
she’s gonna wear her elf shirt and Mandy,
Judy’s oldest daughter has a Christmassy
outfit to wear too.  So,  we might all get a
picture to share for Christmases to come
if they come out halfway decent.  I’m sure
that Benny and Rocky will make it in a few
photos hehehe.  It’s 6 PM now and it’s just
1 degree colder than it was an hour ago  :)
LOL I think Benny and Rocky are worn
out from playing with Khione.  They are
both lying in the floor sleeping.  It’s looking
like the Pearce’s Place will be enjoying
Christmas this week.  It will be a special
one for me being I have not been able to
spend a Christmas with my daughter for
many years.  It will be my first with my
granddaughter and that is a blessing to
me.  I hope and pray that we have many
more Christmases together.  It seems
that the days cannot go quick enough till
Christmas and sure enough they will go
way too fast as it passes.  I wish there
were a way to stop time.  I would relish
each and every frame.  Yet,  I am sure
we will create many memories in the few
days that they up are here.  So,  it looks
like Judy is back to baking more cookies.
This house smells like a batch of cookies.
LOL making me hungry,  but I must fight
the urge to eat them hehehe.  There’s not
much else to ramble about,  so I reckon
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 of today’s new
poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that place
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I may have stumbled on
a good title just a few lines back.  Now,
let’s see what if anything at all I can do
with it.  Here goes nothing hehehe,  which
might be correct LOL.  I hope not though.

Every Frame

Seasons past
finds a place
every frame
a little taste.
Portions poured
found so sweet
every frame
will seem complete.
Certain people
come to mind
every frame
of Christmastime.
Painted journeys
far and wide
every frame
is love applied.
Many people
seek the glow
every frame
with Christmas snow.
Yet the snow
is not the means
every frame
of Christmas scenes.
For so many
close their eyes
every frame
for sought surprise.
Seeking blessings
times afford
every frame
from our sweet Lord.
Don’t let Christmas
find you blue
every frame
that lives in you.
For it’s Christmas
that revives
every frame
of hopeful eyes.
Find the blessings
seasons worth
every frame
from Jesus’ birth.

OK,  so there’s you a Christmas poem hehehe
like I haven’t written any others for you to read.
Yep,  I have.  Anyways,  before we discuss that,
I wanted to see if there was anything else that I
needed to tell you.  My sister is doing well and
the doctors are going to set up a surgery for her
in January to take care of her breast cancer.
Keep her in your prayers.  She will be OK for
God is in control.  I love you Peggy.  Always
know that you can call me any time.  I’m here
for you.  I might be many miles away,  but my
love travels the distance and if I can help in any
way such as just a ear to listen,  then give me
a call.  My mom is doing well and it seems my
grandmother (my mom’s mom) is doing well
also.  I love you mom and wish you a very
merry Christmas.  I’ll call ya,  but you know
that hehehe.  I call ya almost every day huh.
I would call grandmother,  but her hearing
is not that great and it would be a sort of
one sided phone call.  Well,  there isn’t much
else to tell you,  other than what I tell you
almost every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems with 9 of them once again being sort
of Christmassy.  I also wrote 22 more haiku
for all of the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like.  Now,  I believe it’s time for me
to begin my search for that not so elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful weekend and a blessings filled
week with a very merry Christmas or what
ever you celebrate.  I myself am a Christmas
lover.  So,  now to find that silly off switch
that each week is supposed to try an hide
from me.  Now,  where are you ya little
varmint?  Hahahaha,  I see ya there right
behind my PC camera.  Not quite enough
room for you to hide there is it huh LOL!
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

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

Searching The Sky

A child thinks of Christmas
as magic to find
while searching the sky
for reindeer in line.
Found with some sleigh bells
while searching the sky
a child’s imagination
finds truth that will fly.
With Santa so jolly
in a sleigh that is red
filled full of presents
just like stories said.
A child keeps on dreaming
and hoping so true
while searching the sky
to see that great view.
The sleigh oh so magical
flies through the air
filling Children full of
hopeful and prayer.
Then as the evening
of Christmas is seen
the children are asleep
with him in a dream.

The Season Of Joy

Dreams of white winters
with times real McCoy
are glimmers of snowflakes
with the season of joy.
Christmastime’s passion
comes marching with glee
with the season of joy
for many to see.
Pathways of children
as footprints unfold
are often building
with snow that they’ve rolled.
Building a snowman
so jolly and white
in the season of joy
that they so delight.
Maybe then also
they’ll lie in the snow
making snow angels
arms and legs to and fro.
Then as the day ends
with Christmastime cheer
the season of joy will
show Santa near.

The Hereafter

As time begins ticking
from life unto death
we find oh so often
our lives without breath.
With each day counted
and the Hands of God
ones find the hereafter
the way that they trod.
Though our destinations
might not coincide,
for some seek for Heaven
and some have denied.
The hereafter journey
is a pathway in time
sought by so many
with daily to find,
But Lord God The Father
has our time and place
in the hereafter
with us saved by grace.

A Snowy Christmas

A winters day
with joy to find
a snowy day
with Christmastime.
Many dream
of flakes of white
a snowy Christmas
found in sight.
A scenic view
with trees that glisten
is what many
now are missing.
A snowy Christmas
winters way
is a dream
that many may.
Scenes of magic
in the air
a snowy Christmas
gives its flair.
So for Christmas
many dream
of that wonderful
Christmas scene.

Beyond The Flame

A fireplace burning
with holiday cheer
brings ones the magic
in this time of year.
The fire’s crackling
filled with desire
beyond the flame
what many admire.
With stockings hung
just waiting the thrill
for Santa to come
and each one to fill.
Beyond the flame
that burns so bright
many will sing
of Christmas delight.
Songs about Jesus
and how He was born
to give us grace
on Christmas morn.
He bought a chance
for you and I
beyond the flame
to rise so high.
So this Christmas
look and see
beyond the flame
what’s given free.
The flame of love
that burns so bright
from Heaven above
with His Bright Light.

A Special Feeling

This is the season
to find in your heart
a new life for living
as God’s work of art.
Your Christmas doorway
is waiting for you
a special feeling
for you to walk through.
Let all the sadness
to end as you pray
with Christmas magic
that lives in your day.
A special feeling
that Christmastime gives
comes from The Father
as Jesus Christ lives.
Let now your heartbeat
to fill full of love
with a special feeling

Seriously

Some think of Christmas
as just but a day
that is for buying,
but that’s not the way.
Seriously Christmas
is not about money
just like Easter
is not about the bunny.
Christmas is a day for
grateful so true
and thanking Lord Jesus
for me and for you.
Seriously many
will continue to buy
and forget truly
while they just deny.
Giving of yourself,
not just paying away
can seriously help ones
with their day to day.
So now this Christmas
try giving a hand
and seriously it might
help someone to stand.

Wayfaring Man

A heart that’s unstable,
a wayfaring man
might not find Christmas
with footsteps that land.
A person might travel
and not have a home,
a wayfaring man
that’s found all alone.
Often they’ll display
no need to be seen,
but when they’re asleep
a friends in their dream.
A wayfaring man
or a woman so true,
might not display
the way that they do.
For many people
will silently go
their wayfaring way
the way that they know.
So now this Christmas
don’t just walk on passed
someone you see
with a shadow they cast.
Sometimes appearances
are not so true
for a wayfaring man
could be me and you.

Lost In A Moment

Within but a minute
a moment comes by
bringing along seconds
that might seem to fly.
Speeding like a race car
with where all they went
lost in a time frame
lost in a moment.
Found as a season
that time has displayed
lost in a moment
is found Heaven made.
Time becomes echoes of
Christmases passed
as we remember
our time frames contrast.
Lost in a moment
Christmas is found
when it is seen with
its sight and sound.
Christmas songs playing
on the radio
bring back the blessings
that we used to know.
Old times remembered
as seasonal finds
lost in a moment
are greatest designs.

As I Recall

Now becomes decades,
spring unto fall
winter then enters
as I recall.
Christmastimes blessings
come into frame
as I recall
with peace to attain.
Time becomes pages
found in a book
written of Christmases
many mistook.
For as I recall
the days of my youth
were displayed of God
and Christmas of truth.
But I strayed away
a little off track,
but Jesus Christ helped me
find my way back.
Time can be lessons
spring unto fall
and winters of Christmases
as I recall.
So look for the blessings
through seasons of time
and then remember
Lord Jesus Divine.

Haiku
for Dec 17,  2015

Seasons of hurry
bring a lot of forgetfulness
and some regretful.

Limits of thunder
are as lightning holding back
as storm clouds pass by.

Nearing tomorrow
today might lose perspective
with worrying minds.

The winds of today
might blow different breezes
than what we wanted.

Lives of a robot
only squeak its arguments
when needing some oil.

A shadow alone
is without any reason
unless it has life.

Violins playing
can display so much sadness
if in the wrong tune.

Within a window
holds many different views
with a few questions.

Love of a moment
could prevent your want for change
that you truly need.

Never is a place
that lives in someone’s regret
or their happiness.

The loan wolf of time
walks amongst many the same
without them knowing.

Colorful paintings
might hang upon a lifetime
that no one will see.

Life of a flower
knows springtime until autumn,
then it falls asleep.

Conclusions journey
finds a wrong analysis
often with hurtful.

When lost in a dream
reality can be sad
when you awaken.

The wonders of time
are counted with perception
as each page is turned.

The age of today
finds its birthplace in the past
while time goes its way.

A yellow flower
finds a path through summertime
that’s just many weeds.

Pearlescent dreamers
are as glimmers of rainbows
found within their minds.

Having and holding
is not ones true ownership,
for it might be lost.

Joining with others
makes a chain of connections
not always so strong.

Lights that burn brightly
often leave many shadows
displayed on the walls.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been unseasonably warm this winter
so far,  but I’m pretty sure that will change
as the days move forward.  This week has
a forecast of ice and snow.  Don’t yet know
how much though.  My weather alert says
4 to 6 inches of snow,  but as I have said
before,  that could all change to more or
less at the drop of a hat hehehe.  I do hope
that this year isn’t the one that we end up
without a white Christmas being that my
daughter and granddaughter are coming
up and wanting to see snow.  It would be
a bummer.  We’ve had a white Christmas
for the past 8 years that we have lived up
here.  Oh well,  it’s not like we have any
control over the weather.  It might snow.
It’s been known to snow on Christmas Eve.
Judy just told me that technically it’s still
fall until December 22.  Oh well,  Jamye
is planning on staying until the 28th so I’m
sure they will get to see some snow.  I’m
still banking on a white Christmas.  None
the less I’m sure it will be great.  OK,  so
onto the next topic.  I took a few pictures
of the boys running and playing in the snow
earlier last week.  They had a blast.  Rocky
seems to love the snow just as much as his
brother Benny.  Yep,  it seems that we have
2 snow dogs.  Judy and I took a drive up to
Presque Isle Tuesday to go to the super
Walmart and get us some new tires and
I took pictures all the way there as I always
do hehehe.  I also took a scenic drive by
myself Wednesday and found some great
places to stop and take pictures.  Most of
them were just a few miles from where
we live.  As you probably know,  I love to
take pictures and I’m sure there will be
more to take pictures of as winter grabs
a footing.  This has been an odd winter
and it’s taking a little longer to show its
face,  but I’m sure it will expose itself in
due time hehehe.  All of the previous snow
melted away by about Friday or so,  but it
will be back,  I guarantee it.   Right now
my Windows 8.1 PC is installing that
darned Windows 10 on it.  I’ve already
tried it out and uninstalled it,  but it’s
chosen to update on its own,  so it looks
like I will be uninstalling it after it has
finished installing LOL.  Windows 10
sucks.  More of my programs will not
work using it.  At least Windows 8.1
works with a few of them.  Still it has
that email problem that makes me not
use it for my main PC.  Windows 8.1
nor Windows 10 will let me install my
Outlook Express on them and that is
the only email program that seems to
work for me,  so I will continue using
this PC that has Windows XP Pro on it.
I don’t need all those Windows updates.
They’re most times just memory hogs
anyways.  I have my other programs
that will keep it safe and operating as
it should be,  so who needs their updates.
Don’t they realize that in general,  many
people cannot afford Windows 10 or
to upgrade their PC’s so that Windows
10 will work on them.   The same with
Windows 8.  They both require many
PC hardware updates that a lot of us
can’t afford.  I think Microsoft needs
to let people choose which program
that they want to run.  I HATE version
10.  I also hate version 8.1,  but it’s
better than 10 LOL.  Ok,  so enough
with my ranting about Microsoft hehehe.
I made Judy,  I and the boys breakfast
just a bit ago and had to stop and eat,
but I’m done now.  The boys are doing
OK.  Rocky seems to always want to
be the center of attention :)   Benny
is begging for treats from Judy hehehe.
Rocky lets Benny do the begging and
then reaps the rewards.  Benny has
a weird way of begging.  He talks in
many different octaves.  He can sort
of pronounce words such as I love
you and Mama along with I want :)
LOL,  we would end up with a gabby
one wouldn’t we.  Milo used to do
the talking,  but he didn’t talk near
as much as Benny.  No matter,  we
love these boys.  There’s not much
else that has gone on around here this
passed week.  The Hand of God has
been watching over us as always and
providing what we are unable to do
for ourselves.  My sister is still needing
your prayers.  The doctors said her
cancer isn’t spreading and so they’re
setting up a schedule to do whatever
needs to be done in January.  I don’t
think they’ll do radiation again being
she has already been through that with
the first bout with the cancer in 1999.
In any case,  please keep Peggy in your
prayers.  Her birthday was Dec 6 and
I wrote her a birthday poem and put
it into a picture that she can frame.
I wish I could be there for you Peggy,
but as I’ve said many times,  prayer
travels many miles.  Hang in there sis.
God is always in control.  So,  now
I reckon it’s time for me to begin my
search back through all that I have
written here,  to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the
title of today’s brand new poem.  So
it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may
have stumbled upon a decent title near
the beginning of my rambling.  Now to
see if I can do anything with it hehehe.
Here goes……Blast off

It’s Been Known

Those times we remember,
those times we recall,
it’s been known to be seen with
the same spring to fall.
Each and every moment
that we might see today,
will be somehow be found now
a remembered display.
Yet so many times we look back
and search to find true,
we are often just remembering
our dismembered view.
It’s been known to be saddening
with times that you miss,
as you might just so often
sit around and reminisce.
Let the times you’ve been happy
to be found it’s been known
as you strive on your journey
for more to be flown.
More days of happiness
that are found from within,
for it’s been known truly,
that with God it can begin.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope I didn’t bore you
too much with my PC ranting LOL,  but if
I did,  well there ya go,  I’m human hehehe.
Benny almost made me wet myself when he
jumped up and started barking and ran out
of the room headed for the front door LOL.
It turned out that he was barking at nothing
AGAIN.  He hears our neighbors and thinks
he’s gotta protect us from them.  Problem
is,  our neighbors are quite a distance from
our house LOL.  Benny is our little overly
active doorbell/security alarm.  What would
we do without him hehehe?  He’s now lying
in his doggy bed right beside me.  Rocky is
lying under Judy’s chair using the legs of
her chair as a pillow hehehe.  We love our
little boys.  Well 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,  but this time
9 of them are Christmas poems hehehehe.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
Now,  I guess it’s time for me to begin my
search for that not so elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend or whatever is left of it and a
blessings filled week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  OK,  so where
are ya hiding this week ya ornery little
whippersnapper?  LOL,  I think I spy
a piece of lumpy paper that should not
have no lumps at all.  I see ya hiding
under the Walmart tire receipt hehehe.
I almost didn’t see ya,  but you coughed.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S.  Happy birthday Peggy (sis).  I love you.

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

Christmas Beginnings

Seasons with journeys,
spring unto winter
Christmas beginnings
come front and center.
The stage is well formed
as time is begun
Christmas beginnings
with Christmas songs sung.
All of the wonders
of every display
Christmas beginnings
can be every day.
Great times of blessings
with our memories
Christmas beginnings
are then as the leaves.
Sometimes found rustling
as time goes around
Christmas beginnings
will always be found.
Maybe with snowflakes
falling to Earth
Christmas beginnings
speak Jesus’ birth.
Then with the stage set
of hopeful for free
Christmas beginnings
display history.
Within a manger
the time is begun
Christmas beginnings
show of God’s Son.
Then as time moves on
and Lord Jesus shines
Christmas beginnings
are the greatest of times.

Leftover Magic

As December’s magic
is shadows we see
the new year begins with
blessings for free.
Though many blessings
might not seem so clear
and left over magic
might fade in the year.
Sometimes that magic
is lost in our heart
seen as a memory
time frames apart.
That leftover magic
can still come alive
if you will let it
to daily survive.
Don’t let your journeys
to lose track of time
and discern Christmas
as just in your mind.
It is a moment
that can live and breathe
with left over magic
if you will believe.

Snowflakes Illusions

Lost in a whirlwind
the snowflakes will blow
some as illusions
that seem to just grow.
So many snowflakes
fall from above
to float down so graceful
and show us their love.
Snowflakes illusions
might look like a sheet
coming in waves
to land at my feet.
Some make snow ice cream
and some have a plan
to roll up so nicely
and make a snowman.
These are the memories
sometimes as elusions
hard to catch surely
as snowflakes illusions.
Christmas with magical
white snow of time
creating some wonders
that are so divine.
Snowflakes illusions
can be anything
a Christmastime flake
in songs that we sing.
Yet they are wondrous
those snowflakes I see
and not all illusions
that are happy and free.
Some are as pages
of books that we read
snowflakes illusions
that seem to plant seed.
Christmastimes joy
in a wondrous detail
aren’t snowflakes illusions,
but magic set sail.

Sitting Up In bed

The sweet eve of Christmas
is now on my mind
as I count the minutes
till that wondrous time.
It seems that I’m restless
and searching for snow,
while sitting up in bed
and looking to and fro.
The minutes pass slowly
and time moves along
while sitting up in bed
just singing a song.
A song about Jesus
and a little drummer boy,
a song about Santa
and oh so much joy.
I think of all the wonders
that Christmas entails
while sitting up in bed
and biting my nails.
I then lay my head down
and try to go to sleep
as I start counting
those bushy white sheep.
Those sheep turn to snow
as dreams in my head
and I wake up again
just sitting up in bed .

A Tiny Speck

A small amount
of hope so true
can create
a better you.
Letting blessings
find your heart
a tiny speck
will help you start.
The smallest grain
of hope and love
can be more
than push and shove.
A tiny speck
of God for free
can change you
and what ones see.
The passageways
that ones forget
are what can come
from a tiny speck.
A little hopeful
from within
a tiny speck
can then begin.

Your Souls Desire

Dreams of Christmas
and its flame,
your souls desire
might attain.
But it needs some
Jesus love
come from Heaven
up above.
Your souls desire
might fall prey
to the wants
a wrongful way.
Christmas gifts
without a heart
your souls desire
falls apart.
Look within
your souls desire
and see what burns
your truthful fire.
Let God’s glow
find you with praise
your souls desire
better days.

The Look Of Christmas

That sight within minds
that many don’t see
is the look of Christmas
in you and in me.
So often we might just
fear to show true
that very special look
that’s in me and you.
Don’t let your spirit
to just hide away.
Give the look of Christmas
in your every day.
Sure there are others
that are not as the same,
they celebrate the day,
but not the same name.
Also there are many
that do not at all
celebrate Christmas
that you might appall.
But remember now truly
what we are to do
and love one another
though different our view.
We are God’s children
though different we sway
so keep the look of  Christmas
within your own way.
Love Jesus truly
the way that He meant
for the look of Christmas
is still Heaven sent.

Passageways

So many passageways
through our own minds
will lead us in directions
to so many times.
Wintertime’s doorways
of which December paves
finds scenes of Christmas
in those passageways.
Driving down the road
in those Christmassy nights
there are some passageways
with many lights.
Colors all a gleaming
of red, green and blue,
while we drive around
to look at the view.
Passageways of twinkles
that glisten so fine
are often with the essence of
Christmas devine.

Snow For Christmas

My heart seeks signs
of Christmas snow,
in hopes by Christmas
it will flow.
Snow for Christmas
great to see,
to build a snowman
fancy free.
A simple sight
of flakes to fall,
which to land
and cover all.
Snow for Christmas
I seek true,
each flake falling
quite a few.
Now I’m dreaming
wide awake,
snow for Christmas
to partake.
Reaching out to
catch of few,
snowflakes falling
in my view.
Snow for Christmas
is my wish,
for them falling
sway and swish.
Christmas hopefuls
song and dance,
snow for Christmas
in advance.

Beside The Fireplace

Together with family
right by the fire,
Christmas was burning
so full of desire.
The smell of food cooking
that soon we would eat,
beside the fireplace
where we would meet.
My cousin there with me
as we would just play,
beside the fireplace
day after day.
Those wonderful moments
my grandparents shown,
beside the fireplace
now are just known.
Memories living
of Christmas so great,
singing and playing
I did so elate.
Now those days are gone,
but they live deep inside,
times beside the fireplace
Christmas applied.

Haiku
for Dec 12,  2015

Hurry is problem
when you cannot keep your stride
and you hurt someone.

The many storm clouds
that we might see as problems,
might be our blessings.

A sound in the night
that is hidden from your view
could be what’s misheard.

As days move forward
they leave portions of themselves
found in tomorrow.

Escaping the truth
cannot be done by lying,
for the truth will win.

Beneath an action
there’s often motivation
either good or bad.

Various people
leave their feelings covered up
and explode often.

Within a moment
holds many choices to make
with a few mistakes.

Lost in a whirlwind
a flower seed might be found,
but still find its life.

Inflated egos
will often be found alone
as time goes its way.

Flourishing heartbeats
might one day find companions
if they are patient.

Today’s guiding light
could be angels in disguise
in form of your friends.

A cloud passes by
leaving a few memories
if you sought to see.

Believing needs faith
for many things we can’t see
are in existance.

The branch of a tree
might look as though it is dead,
but still have some life.

There’s still a blue sky
even if you can’t see it,
for it hides from view.

As the moon moves on
it reflects its bright glimmer
as shadows of night.

The dawn of morning
brings many new sights to see
if we look for them.

Nearing tomorrow
are the minutes and seconds
that are connecting.

Born to imagine,
it helps us each to create
from what that’s not there.

A bird that’s in flight
might lose itself in a cloud
and find a rainbow.

The stars that twinkle
have only their memories
to shine in the night.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well I’m getting a late start on my writing
today being that Judy and I went over her
daughters house to have dinner and visit
and we didn’t get back till a little while ago.
Mandy can cook great.  Judy and I had a
nice visit,  but we had to get back home to
let the boys out of their crates.  They had
to stay home.  So,  hmm what else has gone
on around this place this passed week? We
managed to get some great pictures last
week.  Yep,  we even took some of Judy
and I in our Mr. and Mrs. Santa clothes.
They came out pretty good.  We hadn’t
taken any since we did them in 2012 our
first Christmas with Benny and Milo,  so
we figured we needed to do some new ones
with Benny and Rocky.  Oddly the first
picture in both indoors and outdoors was
the best of all that we took.  I always take
many photos just in case I get a better
shot.  In this case,  I didn’t need all of
the others LOL.  Judy took a number of
photos of me using the snow blower on
our driveway and then also a few of me
and the boys out in the field with me in
my Santa suit.  I later took the boys out
for a walk further out in the field and
took a few pictures of them.  It seems
that Rocky loves the snow as much as
Benny :)  We were hoping he would.
There is still a lot of snow outside,  but
it’s quickly melting away.  There should
be some more snow to come in a week
or so.  We’ve had a white Christmas
every year since we moved up here 8
years ago and I hope we have one this
year as well,  being my daughter and
granddaughter are wanting to see one.
With that El Nino who can tell?  The
weathermen are guessing and each
one has a different view.  So only God
knows.  Hopefully though the weather
turns more Christmassy for Christmas.
OK,  so what else is there to yammer
about?  Well,  Thursday we went to
Walmart to do some shopping and got
our Christmas shopping done as well
as our grocery shopping hehehe.  So,
we are done.  We will have to go back
for the basic foods such as eggs and
milk etc,  but for the most part we
are good for at least a week.  Benny
and Rocky are doing well.  Right now
Rocky is busy playing with the toys
that go squeak and he’s driving me
crazy LOL.  That boy has hauled so
many dogs toys in here that you can’t
take a step without stepping on one :)
Judy and I will pick them up and put
them away and he will be right behind
us grabbing them to take back into
the PC room hehehe.  At the moment
I count 24 squeaky dog toys in the floor.
Rocky was watching me count hehehe.
At least it’s an even number HaHaHa.
Like that matters to him, or me.  LOL
right now he’s busy trying to get Benny
to chase him,  but Benny just stands
and waits for him to come back so he
came jump him hehehe.  Talk about
distractions 😉  Oh yea,  when we were
leaving from Judy’s daughters house
to come home,  we took some pictures
of the snowman and snow dog that
our granddaughter Rylee built LOL.
Both Judy and I took pictures with
both of our cameras hoping to get a
good picture.  It was slippery as all
get out and we had to watch our step.
I think we got a few good shots.  I
took one of Judy standing in front
of the snowman and snow dog LOL.
I just got a Facebook message from
my daughter with her asking me if
we can make snow ice cream when
she comes up hehehe.  We shall see.
The weather is out of our control,  but
I’m banking on snow for Christmas.
In any case I’m sure it will be a great
Christmas.  Jamye and Sami will meet
their extended family up here.  They
are anxious to meet them as well :)
I’ll also get a chance to meet Jamye’s
boyfriend Brian and his son P.J.  It’s,
going be a wonderful time.  OK so
what else is going on up this ways?
OH yea,  my sister is in need of your
prayers.  Her cancer has returned
and they are talking this time about
surgery.  She went through all of the
radiation treatments years back,  so
please keep her in your prayers.  If
you know her phone number,  do not
call her PLEASE.  She doesn’t need
to be bothered right now.  She is a
strong woman and she has her mom
and me as well as her kids if she needs
to talk.  I love you Peggy.  Hang in
there.  Lord God is always in control.
Judy and I are holding our on as we
watch each day go by.  We always
know that God’s hands are holding
us,  protecting us from evils of life.
Yet,  we know that with life comes
many trials that we must endure,
for we are human.  Each trial will
make us stronger if we do not give
up. I have learned many things as my
life has met quite a few bumpy roads
that took me for a ride,  but I am
much stronger that I have endured.
Let Jesus walk with you down your
daily path of winding roads.  He will
carry you when you are found too
weak to walk.  Left in His Hands you
cannot go wrong.  So,  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
just a few lines back and so the chore
begins to try and write something that
makes sense using it LOL.  Here goes.

Bumpy Roads

Traveled journeys
far and wide,
bumpy roads
we’ll often ride.
Times so rocky
might just be
bumpy roads
to help you see.
Listless travels
that we find
might just help
to change our mind.
Bumpy roads
of worried faces
might lead to
some better places.
Yet some moments
might display
bumpy roads
the weirdest way.
Scenes remembered
heavy loads
might be God sent
bumpy roads.

OK,  so there ya go.  I was going to write
a Christmas poem,  but then I found this
other title (Bumpy Roads) and figured that
I would save the other title for next weeks
Christmas poems hehehe.  I hope you liked
the poem and understood it.  Also I hope
that you enjoyed my rambling hehehehehe.
If not,  then I’m so sorry hehehe,  NOT :)
No,  I’m quite sure that I will not please all
of you all of the time.  Everybody doesn’t
always agree on everything or anything.
Yep,  we all have our differences and I am
thankful for that.  Could you imagine this
world if everybody was exactly the same?
We would bore each other to death hehehe.
For that matter,  how would we function if
we’re all police,  doctor,  lawyer,  teacher,
etc?  You see my point or at least I hope
a few of you do LOL.  Who would you be
teaching if everybody is a teacher and
the same for everything else.  So thank
God that we each are different,  for Even
identical twins have their own pathways
and personalities .  LOL I should know,
I’m married to one hehehe.  So I hope
I’ve either amused you or taught you
something.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to tell you what I tell you almost
every week and that is I wrote some
more poems and haiku.   Yeppers 10
more poems with 7 of them this time
being Christmas poems.  Also I once
again wrote 22 haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like.  Now I believe it’s time for me to
be searching for that not so great at
hiding off switch,  but not before I
wish you a truly blessings filled week
being the weekend is pretty much over
with.  At least it is up this way LOL.
Now,  where is that confounded off
switch hiding this time?  Well,  I’ll be.
it looks like he actually put in some
effort in his hiding place this week :),
but I still can see ya dude.  Hiding
underneath my K2 meter that I’ve got
sitting next to me on the printer LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S.  Happy birthday Peggy (sis).  I love you.

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

Season’s Snow

The winds of winter
churn day to day
as the season’s snow
displays in its way.
Blowing profusely
as snowflakes of time
the season is found
with many a rhyme.
Ones singing sweetly
songs they remember
of the season’s snow
that’s found in December.
Epic are the scenes
so fluorescent white
within the seasonal
each day and night.
For even the darkness
is found with a glow
reflecting the moonlight
down on the snow.
The first of the season
is magic to see
as it shows blessings
the greatest degree.
Lights all a twinkling
seen to and fro
are found in the moment
of this season’s snow.

Moments Remembered

Decembers doorways
are coming in frame
as this great season
entails Jesus name.
Searching through snowflakes
to find what that’s true
Decembers doorways
are coming in view.
Moments remembered
from times long ago
become as the pathways
to help us to grow.
Lessons repeated
that we overlook,
moments remembered
so timeless mistook.
Not seeing blessings
as they come in frame,
many just trudge on
each day as the same.
Moments remembered
are times we should see
truth within Christmas
and what it should be.
Let your heart blossom
as roses of love
singing of Christmas
from Lord God above.

Lost In Description

Losing your pathway
to darkness of life
lost in description
will fill you with strife.
Let not the sadness
that time gives to you
become the only
way that you view.
For there is goodness
somewhere in a way
lost in description
that you view each day.
Often it’s hidden
beneath moments pain
needing a moment
for you to attain.
Lost in description
you might misconstrue
all of the blessings
that God’s given you.

Some Just Forget

Christmas holds patterns
that many perceive
and some just forget
how they’re to believe.
Some move along
too quickly through time
and stop believing
in blessings to find.
Many sought Santa
on throughout the night
Christmas Eve surely
until morning light.
Some just forget
what the magic entails
giving is better
than living in shells.
Christmas is blessings
and not just a day,
but some just forget
that wonderful way.
Let Christmas joyful
to live within you
and find all the magic
that there is to view.
Don’t just forget
what Christmas can be.
Let Jesus Christ to
help you to see.
Don’t become someone
with hateful regret
and then be known for
as some just forget.

Hearts Change

As many change
and hearts are destroyed
we are then needing
Lord Jesus deployed.
Many lose Christmas
as time goes away
then as hearts change
their love is to pay.
Christmas can be
a reviver so true
while making hearts change
much better to view.
So lose your anger
and find peace within
and see hearts change
forgiven from sin.
Don’t let tomorrow
to become destroyed.
See how hearts change
with Jesus employed.
Christmas then found
as hearts beating true
the essence of love
for me and for you.
Let your decisions
to be better made
displaying as hearts change
with every sin paid.

Simply Believing

Winds of a doorway
open and close
simply believing
a child does suppose.
Christmastimes scenes
come to life no deny
while simply believing
is Santa in the sky.
A young child with hopeful
and dreams to come true
turns simply believing
to things they can view.
Maybe in a dream
or a wishful desire
simply believing
burns bright as a fire.
A young Christmas heart
finds Santa Claus joy
while simply believing
in a Christmastime toy.

Various Styles

Minds of a journey
various styles
often display as
frowns and smiles.
Some with a moment
headed thereunto
various styles are
found then to view.
Minutes tick onwards
as time moves along
while various styles
are dusk unto dawn.
Many seek Heaven
while ones look away
as various styles
are found day to day.
God gives us chances
for so many miles
to help the confusion
of various styles.

A Star Lit Sky

A porthole is seen
in the dark of the night
a sleigh with reindeer
and one with a light.
Santa Claus flying
so high Christmas Eve
in a star lit sky
that I do perceive.
Sleigh bells a jingling
just like a song
in a star lit sky
to soon then be gone.
The moon up above
I cannot deny
is helping Santa
in a star lit sky.
Yet with the twinkle
of Rudolf’s nose
helps Santa’s sleigh
when surely it snows.
For then with snowflakes
and no stars to see
Rudolf guides Santa
across the blue sea.
But when it’s clear then
Santa will fly
with all the help from
a star lit sky.

A Dream Of White

A Christmas dream
I do delight
found so sweet
a dream of white.
A dream of snowflakes
falling free
a dream of white
for me to see.
Christmas music
ones sing along
a dream of white
from dusk to dawn.
The seasons flurries
day and night
are found within
a dream of white.
Lights seen twinkling
red,  blue and green
a dream of white
the best I’ve seen.
The solemn beauty
Christmas shows
a dream of white
that God bestows.
Maybe only
a dream of white,
but it’s beauty
I do delight.

The Minutes Pass

With the daylight
passing through
time bestows
a wondrous hue.
The minutes pass
with time to spare
as ones find
some time for prayer.
A moment’s gathered
such to see,
the minutes pass
you must agree.
For so often
wasting away
the minutes pass
to another day.
Procrastination
comes on cue,
the minutes pass
with thereunto.
Allowing time to
fly on by,
the minutes pass
and then you die.
So don’t wait to
do what’s right,
the minutes pass
now seek the light.
Let God’s glory
live and breathe,
the minutes pass
how you believe.
Don’t let minutes
just to be
the minutes pass
to history.

Haiku
for Dec 5,  2015

With but a worry
the chance for failure exist,
for you’ll create it.

Perceived discretion
can look just like prejudice,
but be just caution.

Without emotions
we would all just be empty
with no expressions.

A true field of dreams
lives within a hearts desire,
if it’s meant to be.

Varieties seen
expose different doorways
of which to choose from.

Beyond what we see
there’s another place to find
that waits to be found.

So many people
lose their faith in Lord Jesus,
when told they must change.

Ignorance of truth
does not give right for the wrong,
for we need to learn.

Displayed as flavors
a season might seem to be
colors of taste buds.

Sudden storm showers
will leave their footprints in time
as flooding waters.

Beside a second
might sit a portion of time
that we’ve forgotten.

Blessings uncounted
might soon be overflowing
without our knowledge.

A distant flower
that your eyes have laid upon,
might just be a weed.

Patterns that we’ve made
are sure to change as we grow,
making new patterns.

Perfection is fool,
for nobody is perfect,
except Jesus Christ.

Left over choices
could become our dynamite
that we should forget.

Your own reflection
will look inside of your heart
for you know it’s there.

Heartbeats entwined
can become as one heartbeat
through the love of God.

A silent venture
will maybe end in trouble,
with none to rescue.

In the starry skies
holds a place to imagine
and fill up your dreams.

Hillsides of venture
might hold quite a few landslides,
so take heed your stride.

Despair of what’s gone
needs be filled with thankfulness
for what all you have.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How’s it going in your part of the world? It’s
been sort of cold and rainy over this ways, but
not too bad. We only got a bit of snow Sunday
night and Monday. It’s almost non existent to
be seen now, but I’m sure we haven’t seen the
last of that white stuff hehehe. Our grandson
Christian came yesterday and spent the day
and night with us. He’s here right now playing
with his I Pad viewing videos on Youtube. Me
and him spend a lot of time on my computer
watching them when I’m not busy doing other
things such as writing. It’s sort of chilly today.
It’s 23 F degrees right now. Not too bad for
wintertime. It will most surely get much colder
before it’s over with hehehe. We had a great
Thanksgiving. We spent Thanksgiving day
over at Judy’s twin sister’s house. Rocky got
to meet some of his cousins for the first time.
He met Dennis and Trudy’s four yorkies. He
has already met the others. Rocky was real
good. He played with the other pooches and
there were no potty epidemics from him. Yep,
he was a good dog, but he ate too much of
the turkey scraps. I think he might of gotten
a hold of some turkey skin and that’s not good
for dogs. He ended up with diarrhea and a
tummy ache, but he’s OK now. We played
2 of the games that I had bought last year
after Thanksgiving. Being we had so much
fun playing games then, I thought I might
find some different games for us to play :)
1 of the games was called You Must Be An
Idiot and we liked it the best. The other
was called I’m With Stupid and we all got a
chance to wear the dunce hat that says I’m
Stupid. All in all we had a blast. I took a
number of pictures of us all wearing the
dunce hat and Judy took the rest being
I couldn’t take a picture of myself very
well hehehe. Judy and I watched a few
Christmas movies Friday night and we
watched one last night with Christian :)
I think we might put our Christmas tree
up this week and hopefully Rocky doesn’t
try to yank everything off of it. Benny
and Milo always just wanted to sit and
look at it. Rocky on the other hand is a
little bit hyper if ya know what I mean :)
Maybe he will surprise us and not mess
with it. Maybe even he will just want to
look at it the same as Benny. No matter,
the tree is going up and Judy and I are
also planning on doing our Christmas
pictures with us and the boys being we
have many with Milo, but none with
Rocky YET. He has come a long ways
and he’s learned to let us know when he
needs to go potty. This morning, I was
lying on my right side facing the edge
of the bed and he came up and gave me
a lick on the face saying, GOTTA GO.
So when I said ya gotta go, even Benny
hopped up and ran with him to the door.
I guess he figured, why wait hehehehe?
Yep, now if he would just let us cut his
hair. Benny enjoys getting his hair cut
as he will most times just lie there and
go to sleep. It took both Judy and I to
try and hold Rocky in one place to give
him a hair cut and we still never got done.
We tried to cut his toe nails, but once
again, he’s hard to hold. We might give
it another try later, but then maybe take
him to the vet to have them do it LOL.
Judy and I have got scars on our arms
and legs where he jumps up wanting
to play and that hurts. We know he
doesn’t mean it, but those claws must
be trimmed LOL. Benny’s needs to be
trimmed as well, but he doesn’t jump
on us like Rocky does. Benny used to,
but he’s grown out of it :) I’m sure
that Rocky will too, but we’re thinking
not soon enough hehehehehe. Oh well,
next topic. It’s supposed to get down
to 9 F degrees by tomorrow morning.
I am so happy that our landlord finally
got our furnace working again. Our
water would surely freeze at 9 F LOL.
We would be OK with our radiator
heaters in here and in our bedroom,
but there is none in the bathroom or
in the other part of the house. We’ve
got an extra radiator heater, but our
breaker box will not suffice that much
juice coming from all of the heaters,
plus our electric bill is high enough
already, we don’t need to add to it.
Hmm, tomorrow is my moms B Day
and I will write her a birthday poem
like I try to do every once in a while.
My sister Peggy’s birthday is Dec 6
and I might write her one too. I miss
them. I wish they could of made it up
for the fall colors, but maybe next
year. I am excited to see my daughter
and granddaughter as well as Jamye’s
boyfriend and his son this Christmas.
I hope she’s not ashamed of our home.
Judy and I are happy, but she might
see it as a slum. I hope not. We’re not
rich and we cannot afford a fancy home.
We look for the good in the moments
and the scenery. No matter, I’m sure
we will have a wonderful visit. I hope
it’s not the one year that it decides not
to snow for Christmas. That would
be a bummer. We’ve had snow for
Christmas every single year since 2007
when we moved up here so hopefully
it doesn’t change. I know, most of
the people that are from up here hate
the snow, but I love it. I hate the
slush that comes when it’s melting
and ice that comes when it freezes
again, but love the snow hehehehe.
It creates some magical scenes that
I manage to often capture in photos.
It could be that I’m a born and raised
Texan and I never had the chance to
experience snow like this down there.
Yep, seeing snow tends to turn me
into a kid again, wanting to go and
play in it. I am getting antsy to use
our new snow blower. The snow
that we had Monday wasn’t quite
enough for me to use it. I’m sure I’ll
have many times to use it as winter
plants its foot firmly in place hehehe.
I know it gets cold, but God gives
us the beauty to make up for the
coldness. For everything that we
might see as bad, there is good to
come from it if we look hard enough.
Yes, there are many things that we
might say to ourselves, where is
the good, but somewhere in God’s
plans there is the good. He knows
the future and right now might be
confusing, but the puzzle is not yet
fully in place. Have you ever been
putting together a puzzle without the
picture to go by? Did you in those
moments wonder if it would ever
come together and what it would
look like? Yes I’m sure many of
you have. I know I have. It’s the
same with life. We don’t know what
the picture is supposed to look like
and our own decisions of what it
should be begin to interfere. Let
God be your guide as you use some
common sense to do what’s right.
Don’t let others negativity to change
your views to the wrong path of
life. Now I believe I have rambled
quite enough and 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 of 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 near the middle of my rambling.
Now, let’s see what, if anything at
all I can do with it. Here goes :)

Cannot Afford

Now as the days pass
Thanksgiving is found
leftover memories
coming around.
Times we were seeking
and left in the rain
maybe transfixed on
all of our pain.
That thought comes to be
that we cannot afford,
but often our views are
not of The Lord.
Money’s true value
is to provide home and food
with I cannot afford
words found misconstrued.
Now look at each day
as what they can be
while learning the lessons
from our history.
Don’t let I cannot afford
to sadden your heart,
for there are many others
that need our impart.
Ones without money
and no food to eat
cannot afford anything
veggies or meat.
Be thankful for blessings
that God has given you
and then I cannot afford
won’t be all you view.

So, there ya go, a little Thanksgiving poem.
I hope you liked it, but if not, Oh well. I can’t
please everybody LOL. I hope I didn’t put you
to sleep with my rambling. but if I did I guess
you needed a nap. Just call me Mr. Sandman
hehehe. Christians mom came just a little bit
ago and visited and took Christian home. He
was a tired boy. I went to bed around 3:30,
but they stayed up watching videos till about
5:00 and when Rocky came licking me in the face
this morning around 8:30, to tell me he needs
to go potty, Christian was still up sitting in
the recliner playing with his I Pad. So I’m
sure he didn’t sleep much hehehe. It’s always
nice having him around. I wish Chance the
oldest grandson could come and visit, but
he is a busy young man. Christian is 14 and
Chance is 19. Chances little sister Rylee
is a cutie. We love her to death. She likes
to bang on my conga drums hehehe. It’s
obvious that God is looking out for us as
we watch each day go by. Thank You
God for all that You have done for us :)
Now I believe it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you almost every week and that
is, I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep, 10 more poems with 5 of them being
Christmas poems and 1 being actually sort
of Christmassy titled A Lonely Snowflake.
I also wrote once again 22 haiku for all
of the haiku lovers out there. I hope you
can find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like. Now it’s time for me to begin my
search for that (lately) not so elusive off
switch, but not before I wish you a most
wonderful weekend or whatever’s left
of it and a truly blessings filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do
too. OK, so where are ya hiding this
time you silly off switch? I hope that’s
not you I see behind my Advair hehehe.
If it is, for crying out loud, you’ve gotta
be kidding. It is you ya little varmint 😉
I think you’ve become lazier as each
week has passed hehehe. Try harder
next time. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzz.

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

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

Golden Threads

Hearts united
miles apart,
golden threads
are like pure art.
Sewn together
day to day,
golden threads
a wondrous way.
Similar views
within design,
golden threads
will then entwine.
Hearts connected
to and fro,
golden threads
will surely grow.
Passions doorway
opens wide,
golden threads
to be well tied.
Days uncounted
might just seem,
golden threads
a wondrous dream.
With the pages
many read,
golden threads
will plant a seed.

Life and Times

Passed days thought of
at a glance
are a life and times
of song and dance.
Many turnstiles
entered through
are a life and times
of something new.
Some found dismal,
some found grand
are the life and times
ones sit and stand.
So many journeys
are found in place
as a life and times
ones might disgrace.
Yet, many turnstiles
that find our eyes
are a life and times
with beautiful skies.
Don’t look at then days
as better to see,
for sometimes the worst
is our history,
but many viewpoints
are lemons and limes
viewed incorrectly
as our life and times.

Christ In The Day

Some start illusions
of what Christmas is
lost in perception
of TV’s show biz.
Many commercials
with their selling game,
only sought prices
and not Jesus Name.
Lost in the culture
of many sought more,
Christ in the day
was not in a store.
Yet as time’s passed by
we’ve let greed to win
while Christ in the day
was forgiven from sin.
Let this years Christmas
show truly the way
the same as it did then
with Christ in the day.
Be thankful for blessings
and all that is true
and let Christ in the day,
now live within you.

The Lonely Snowflake

Winter winds blowing
as the weather grows cold
shows snowflakes floating
just like times of old.
The seasonal patterns
of snowflakes that land
will often become as
a place where I stand.
Yet a few moments
will show just one flake
floating from the sky
as my eyes partake.
The lonely snowflake
just floats in the breeze,
seeking for the ground
but lands in the trees.
It’s just a portion
of what’s yet to come
seen as so lonely
it’s own beating drum.
But soon there are others
that follow its cue
as the lonely snowflake
started the view.
Snowflakes fall faster
as more comes to be
to join the lonely snowflake
that one I did see.
Then I could swear
I could see for a while
the lonely snowflake
with a great big smile.

Christmas Coming Soon

Now as I sit here
I watch and I wait
Christmas coming soon
my heart does elate.
Seeking for old Santa
and his flying sleigh
I dream of Christmas
that wonderful day.
My inner emotions
transfixed upon then
Christmas coming soon
I want to begin.
Remembering Jesus
the manger in the hay
I seek for the blessings
that wonderful day
Christmas coming soon
is a joy to acquire
seeking to hear ones
songs of a choir.
Singing of Lord Jesus
and even Santa Claus
teaching us of giving
without an applause.
I’m now just thinking
of each Christmas tune
that is so merry with
Christmas coming soon.

A Star I See

Christmas Eve
I watch and wait
sat in bed
so very late.
A star I see
I wish upon
and it quickly
just moves on.
I seek the jingle
sounds to hear,
Santa’s sleigh
this time of year.
My eyes grow tired
and I can’t no more
keep them open
to explore.
A moments time
is then a dream
Santa flying
so to seem.
I’m then awakened
by a sound
I look up then
and all around.
I go downstairs
real slow and quiet
and I see him
in the night.
Santa there
with a great big sack
laying presents
in a stack.
He looked at me
and gave a wink
and up the chimney
in a blink.
I found that night
a star I see,
might of been him
watching me.

So Many Nights

Lights all a glistening
colors so bright,
seem to be living
as Christmas takes flight.
So many nights
are filled full of wonder,
from over here
to way over yonder.
Christmas beginnings
as each day moves on,
as so many nights
are lit up till dawn.
December glimmers
of wonderful sights,
found within Christmas
of so many nights.
Christmas trees decked out
with lights all aglow
and some even sprayed with
a can of white snow.
Trees in the distance
outside I can see
are so many nights
God’s given to me.
Blessings uncountable
with Christmas inlaid,
so many nights are
Jesus displayed.
Christmastimes scenes
all decked out with snow,
found so many nights
with everywhere I go.
So as we drive onwards
while looking at lights,
I see all the blessings in
so many nights.

Lost In A Dream

Wonders we imagine
in dreams that we view
at night while we’re sleeping
might one day come true.
A voyage in the sky
with a magical way
riding with Santa
in his wonderful sleigh.
Lost in a dream then
alive with passion
dreaming of Christmas
maybe old fashioned.
Life in a moments time
then comes alive
while lost in a dream
and learning to fly.
Scenes filled with snowflakes
falling so free
become as a real place
happy to see.
While lost in a dream
the Christmastime glow
comes forth with Santa
and white fallen snow.
Even some icicles
that your dream procures
seems to be magical
mystery tours.
Time becomes minutes
of a Christmassy stream
glistening truly
lost in a dream.

God At The Wheel

Driving through decades
of turbulent notions
we’re needing God to
heal our commotion’s.
For we’ve so often
allowed time to sway
and cause us to judge ones
a wrongful display.
With God at the wheel
we might have a chance
to find us some peaceful
a moments advance.
Yet being human
we all want control
while that so often
will cost a great toll.
I think we each need to
not judge so harsh
and put all the wrong ones
in a deep marsh.
Let God be your guide
to choose what is right
and then you might find
the truth in The Light.
Don’t drive your life
with a wish to conceal.
Try to drive surely
with God at the wheel.

Desperate Measures

Now is now
and then is gone,
minutes ticking
dusk to dawn.
Desperate measures
come in sight,
sometimes as
a moments fright.
Learning lessons
now and then,
becomes tools to
help begin.
Desperate measures
God bestows
on each one
that thinks he knows.
Surely we don’t
know it all
and we sometimes
surely fall.
Desperate measures
often find
God with lessons
for our mind.
Sometimes painted
as someone,
that we may have
chose to shun.
Then Lord Jesus
comes to give
desperate measures
ways to live.

Haiku
for Nov 27, 2015

Too many people
will live only for themselves
and nobody else.

Seasonal snowflakes
come with their own perception
and how they must look.

A small blade of grass
holds onto life through winter,
but looks like it’s dead.

A fleeting moment
is often just a fragment
of all that’s to be.

A ripple in time
might seem like an ocean wave,
but be just a pond.

Eyes that we look through
will often get real dirty
if we don’t clean them.

Various thinking
can conclude multiple thoughts
that might not be good.

A bridge over time
creates some hurried moments
that we need to see.

Basking in sunlight
will often cause us sunburns
if exposed too long.

The needs of many
are still the needs of the few,
but just all combined.

A dogs forgiveness
is that which we should all learn
and not hold grudges.

A persons heartbeat
is many times misconceived
as how they survive.

When painting pictures
you must look within yourself
to find ability.

Cherishing flowers
can become your own downfall
as they lose their bloom.

Beyond the starlight
there’s a world of the unknown
waiting to be seen.

Simplistic moments
might often seem as too large
at the time they’re seen.

The winds of winter
bring forth many things to view
carried by the breeze.

Life in a turnstile
will often display chances,
but end when they’re closed.

With happy and sad
comes different perceptions
and how we view them.

A small cloud of white
can hold its own for a while,
but needs more to storm.

A little drizzle
is so often overlooked
as it hides lightning.

Our tomorrow’s wants
might all change as it arrives,
for we do also.
