ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you’re having a great life or as best to be
expected. Judy and I are doing well although her
younger brother is not doing so well. He is in the
hospital now with many health issues, but it looks
as though he will be OK God willing. He might be
put in the nursing home, but there’s worse things
to be put in like the grave. So now it’s on with my
journal. This passed week has been a somewhat
spring looking one or at least for up here it is LOL.
Yes, there is still some snow on the ground, but
it’s melting away slowly. I’ve taken a few pictures
of it in its melting progression LOL. Yep, we even
have a nonwhite driveway now hehehe. I’ve been
making jokes to Judy telling her to not back into
the snowbank :) We get a good laugh at that as
the only snowbank left beside our driveway isn’t
but maybe an inch high hehehe and after today
it might be gone. There’s still a lot of snow in
the tree line beside our place. I’m seeing a few
buds sprouting on the trees, but as of yet there
are no leaves. My mind is somehow still locked
on wintertime, being I can still see snow hehehe.
You would think that I have been up here long
enough to realize that this is our springtime LOL.
I still have a vision of spring and summer back
in Texas. The vision is HOT and I don’t miss it,
but I do miss seeing spring come alive and all of
that. Of course right now, Texas along with a
few other states along with California are dealing
with drought conditions. I think California is
having the worst time of all. In any sense, it’s
still raining up here as normal. When the snow
ends the rain begins hehehe. We’ve got flood
warnings at the Aroostoock River in Northern
Maine. The river continues to be impacted by
two ice jams near the river gage. Although a
gradual downward trend has been seen since
this morning, sudden fluctuations in river levels
are possible through this evening until the ice is
completely flushed out. Yep, when the snow
starts melting, it sends tons of water down to
low lying areas. Fortunately, we’re not in a
low lying area. We’re actually on high ground.
The river beneath us would have to really get
walloped by over three times the snow we got
this winter before it would reach us :). Maybe
not three times, but a whole lot more than we
normally get and we got a lot of snow this winter.
I don’t think we got as much as we got back in
2008. My first winter in Maine we had a ton
of snow. A record breaking snowfall for Maine
or at least that’s what I was told. In any sense,
it was more snow than I had ever seen aside
from my trip to the Colorado Mountains with
the Russell Memorial Methodist choir in Wills
Point Texas that I sang in when we were on tour
back in my younger years. Well I just looked at
my weather program and it says it’s supposed
to rain most of the week beginning tomorrow
evening. YEAH!!!! Not really yeah, but it’s
not up to me, so why get uptight about it LOL!
I’m doing laundry as I write. I’ve already got
one load in the dryer and waiting for it to be
ready to take out and then another load in the
washing machine waiting for the dryer. I have
one load to go. The towels are next to go in
the washer :). After I get done here with my
writing, I’ll be folding clothes. YEAH!!!!!!!
and not really yeah again, but it’s gotta get
done and I want to have it all done before my
honeypie gets home from her sisters house.
I’m sure she will be tired from taking care of
her mom and we are both needing some clean
clothes. I might do a small load later if I find
a few things I missed that need washing, but
for the most part it will be done. Next, I might
attack the dishes, if of course I have time to
do them after writing this and folding clothes.
I try not to just sit around the house. That’s
why I will often go outside and take pictures.
I’m trying to keep this old body moving LOL.
I can remember when I was in the hospital
for my Ulcerative Colitis and Crohns which
caused me to lose my colon and a third of my
small intestines. I was really weak from not
walking and it took me a long time to recover
although I never fully recovered. I have a
hellacious scar on my stomach. Yeppers
this old body has been through the ringer :),
but it’s still managing to get me around and
I’m thankful for that, even if it hurts like you
know what most of the time LOL. So off of
what ails me and onto another topic hehehe.
Right now it’s 50 F degrees and sunny with a
few clouds floating in the sky. Tomorrow is
supposed to start out sunny, but then have
a few clouds come to visit and pour down
some rain on us later around the midnight
hours. Thank You God for keeping us under
Your Grace and Love. We are oh so very
thankful for all that You have done for us as
we’ve experienced each day anew with the
blessings that You have given us. I think we
will all often lose sight of what we’re needing
and what we’re wanting. Many times with
our carnal minds we will get them confused.
Let God help you with your choices in life
and maybe just maybe you won’t be so bent
out of shape so often. Yes, we will have
our share of problems which at times might
reflect as someone else’s problems, but we
have God to go to and give it to Him and He
will give you strength to make it through it.
Now, I believe 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 for today’s
brand new poem. Hehehe first I had to stop
and fold clothes and put the last load in the
washer. It’s done and so off to that place of
my recollection that I seem to always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I’ve
found a decent title to use and it looks like
I may have not used this one. Maybe one
similar, but not the same. So here goes :)

Our Share

Today brings our stages
of timeless arrivals
that is our share with
some new ways survivals.
Changing of moments
from morning to night
our share of troubles
might seem as not right.
Yet we have our share
of things we go through
that to some others
might seem as so few.
It is the owner of
daily times stages
that sees the story then
all through their ages.
Yet to another then
they might just see
our share of problems
the smallest degree.
Let God to help you
with your daily fare,
for He knows better
what’s truly our share.

Okie dokie, there ya go. I hope you enjoyed my
rambling and you understood the poem. I really
never know if it will make any sense to anybody
but me, but I hope it does. I hear the washer on
its last cycle. Of course I’ll have to wait for the
clothes in the dryer to get done, before I can put
the last load in. So I have time to finish this and
maybe even edit it. There’s not much else to tell
you that I haven’t already mentioned. Milo is
sitting right behind me with that hungry look :).
So I’ll stop here and feed the boys. OK, now
they’re both feeding their faces hehehe. Maybe
I can get this journal finished now LOL. I guess
it’s time for me to tell you what I tell you almost
every week and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems with 2 of em
being sort of Christmassy. Also I wrote once agin
22 haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there. It
looks like I’ll have to stop a moment and let Milo
out so he can go potty hehehe. He’s knocking at
the door with his paw. I’ll be back. OK, I’m back.
I think Benny and Milo are content now. Maybe
I can get this done now hehehe. I reckon its time
for me to be searching for that old off switch that
ain’t so great at hiding, but before I do, I need to
wish you a most wonderful weekend or whatever
is left of it and a most joyful and blessings filled
week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do
too. Now where’s that dadgum off switch hiding
this time? OK now, I can sort of see you in the
curtain as the breeze blows and exposes you :)
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

Oh yea P.S. We had a visit from Judy’s daughters
last week. They brought their dogs to get them used
to being around others. Benny loved it :) Milo on
the other hand could of taken it or left it. He was
the old man of the group hehehe. Although I think
he had fun through it all LOL.

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

Springful Skies

A statement, a wording
of moments surmise
is after winter
with springful skies.
Filled with aliveness
as flowers bloom
in springful skies
as time comes attune.
The seasonal blessings
are colors so sweet
with springful skies
a wonderful treat.
Rains come to water
and give birth a view
as the clouds gather
within thereunto.
Even the shadows
that springtime displays
is with the beautiful
wonderful days.
The essence of morning
fills with surprise
with the beginning of
springful skies.

Dreams Come Alive

With Christmas thinking
the times do survive
as a dreamer dreaming
that dreams come alive.
Yes of course dreamers
can see the sweet view
of Christmas mornings
so fresh and so true.
Seeing the tree lit
with a train going around
dreams come alive
with their sweet sight and sound.
Wonderful moments
that still live and breathe
inside of our minds
if we will believe.
Those dreams come alive
of Christmass displays
with that of a dreamer
of wonderful days.

Winter Moves On

While one day was winter
it now fades away
leaving a magical
view to display.
The snow is all melting
and leaving in place
springtime’s arrival
with a birds smiling face.
Yes winter moves on
as each day will turn
leaving some patches
of snow to discern.
Yet spring brings flowers
to soon come in view
as winter moves on
to return then on cue.
Springtime gives way for
those summertime days
filled with those magical
sun tanning rays.
It’s as the pages
will start a new book
as winter moves on
to allow a new look.

Time Rolls In

As a wave
of time rolls in
to the days
to then begin
Time displays
a certain place
as it rolls
from place to place.
Time rolls in
as seconds pass
leaving many
shadows cast.
As our footsteps
leave their mark
time rolls in
to then embark.
Footprints found
on sandy shores
display all
that time implores.
Time rolls in
with shadow whiles
finding many
moments smiles.
Yet some moments
might be grey
with the time
from day to day.
But those times
of there and then
can wash away
as time rolls in.

My Own Mistakes

All of my choices
that I chose so free
brought me the mishaps
that time found for me.
My own decisions
were most times at fault
for bringing daily
my own times assault,
Yes my own mistakes
brought lessons galore
in through my lifetime
of each wrongful door.
The blame was so often
just me choosing wrong
ending with me then
where I don’t belong.
Life has a pattern
of its give and takes
and God knows I’ll learn
from my own mistakes.

Now As I Seek

This moments springtime
gives me thoughts within
time frames I’ve gathered
from where all I’ve been.
Wintertime’s snowflakes
with Christmastime’s views
finds me with moments
of yesterdays news.
Decembers twilight
is now as I seek
found in a moment
of wanting times peek.
Christmastime’s value
is much more than money.
It’s filled with blessings
of times with my honey.
And so now this moment
I look back and gaze
at all those wonderful
magical days.
Now as I seek them
those times I remember
I think of Christmas
as more than December.

Secret Paths

Journeys wantings

An Ocean Of Swells

Waves come a rolling
just washing in shells
found on an island
of an ocean of swells.
Morning times sunrise
brings waves evermore
washing in rhythms
of time on the shore.
An ocean of swells
is a visual thing
often that’s heard as
waves as they sing.
Waves found just crashing
on sweet sands of time
sound like a heartbeat
that is so divine.
A wonderful symphony
joined in by birds
an ocean of swells
is endless of words.

Waiting For Luck

Often we’re waiting
for time to foretell
when that our journey
will turn out so well.
Waiting for luck as
time goes its way
is sometimes followed
with troubles display.
Often while waiting
we might stumble on
something we wanted
that was better gone.
Let God to help you
to wait with more ease
and not to hurry
with troublesome breeze.
Don’t let your wanna
to exceed what’s good
waiting for luck
might not turn out good.
Sometimes it’s best
to just continue on
and let God guide you
and help you along.

After The Snow

Now as dear winter
is blowing away
springtime is giving
a wonderful day.
Found after winter
the birds chirp so sweet
after the snow
there’s ground at my feet.
Soon all the snow will
melt and help grow
springtime’s own threshold
as rivers will flow.
The stage is set now
to bring forth its power
that is well painted
with every wild flower.
Even the plant life
that ones planted true
after the snow’s gone
will come into view.
Springtime’s arrival
is greeted with joy
as it makes plant life
to surely deploy.

Haiku
for Apr 18, 2015

In the looking glass
we might see a reflection
that others don’t see.

Hidden within time
there are minutes we don’t see,
due to not looking.

Today brings chances
for tomorrow’s better times
written in choices.

Points that we’re making
might not be so obvious
and be lost in time.

Conclusion jumping
could end with wrong perceptions
and end in despair.

Looking back in time
might find you disappointed
and wishing it changed.

Speaking too freely
can cause harm to ones you love,
so careful with words.

As we move ahead
we will find opened doorways
with some not so good.

Winds will find their course
as time displays their journey
driven in each day.

Windows of chances
are sometimes just confusion
painted with fluster.

Blind leading the blind
displays ones with no business
of being in charge.

Within a garage
ones might store their deception
and not show the truth.

A cold as ice heart
will not find any true love
unless it warms up.

Life in the fast lane
will often find destruction
that will hurt others.

The winds of winter
bring forth their own appearance
flavored with snowflakes.

One with hurt feelings
might hide them from you and me
for fear of judgment.

Anger fills a cup
to where it could overflow
if it’s not emptied.

Laughing too loudly
could make others look at you
and think you’re crazy.

The footsteps we make
leave footprints in our journey
that ones might follow.

As daylight goes dark
nighttime brings stars out to dance
and the moon to shine.

Meaningful heartbeats
bring love into existence
as one becomes two.

A little venture
might conclude to large footsteps
leading to nowhere.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s a bright and sunny day today and 54 F degrees.
Of course there is still a ton of snow outside yet to be
melted away. Yep, ya still gotta wear sunshades to
look outside LOL. The good part is that there is no
more snow in the forecast. There is although a bit of
rain in the forecast LOL. We’re still gonna have some
freezing temperatures at night for a while. That’s the
way it is up here. If it ain’t snowing, it’s raining LOL.
I will be glad when spring does finally get here. Yet
right now, there are still just barren branches on the
trees. Of course all of the evergreens are still green.
That only changes when they have tons of snow on
them and in that case they’re white hehehe. Yep,
this is life up north in Maine. Judy and I are doing
well. Our heating oil seemed to of lasted, so we
didn’t have to by anymore, but we will most surely
have to start buying some more this summer to get
ready for next winter, because our tank is almost
empty. Benny and Milo are doing well. They are
as ornery as always hehehe. Milo is lying in a dog
bed right beside me. Benny is at his guard station
on the recliner in the living room. He lets us know
if he hears something. Of course dogs can hear
a lot better than you or I so he tends to hears stuff
that doesn’t really pertain to us, such as some cars
driving down the road or our neighbors LOL. Yep,
he’s our overactive alarm system. We are glad he
does keep tabs though, because sometimes our
doorbell is frozen and will not work, and Benny
lets us know that someone is at the door. If we
try to ignore him in that situation, he will come
and get us and in his own way say come with me,
there’s someone at the door LOL. Yep, that’s
the way this house rolls hehehe. Right now I’m
eating some generic Lucky Charms LOL. They
have gotten a little mushy since I am writing and
eating at the same time or at least attempting to.
Milo just woke up and went and knocked at the
door with his paw to tell me, he’s gotta go out.
I’ll be back……………. I’m back. My cereal is
really soggy now LOL. Oh well, it’s still edible.
I just opened a window to let in some fresh air.
Through the 6 months of winter it does tend to
get a little stuffy in the house being with all of
the storm windows and doors. My allergies are
still running strong. They never take a break.
I have all year round allergies. You might be
able to hear me sneezing if you live close LOL.
I do keep the tissue companies in business :)
I have tried every allergy relief med. that I can
find and so far only Benadryl does anything to
help me, but unfortunately it messes with my
eyes. It doesn’t do like it does for Judy. It
never makes me sleepy. It just makes it hard
to see until it wears off. Then I can see, but
it’s on with the sneezing and blowing my nose.
LOL that’s my life. Milo just got up out of the
floor and went into our bedroom and he has
hopped up on the bed and is now sleeping in
my spot hehehe. Oh well, I’m not using it at
this moment LOL. They both like to lay in
bed with us, but we only allow it if we’re just
watching TV or as the matter as it is now and
neither of us is in bed. They are both banned
if they have been outside in the snow and all.
Nope, that’s when I will point at the floor and
they will stay down there. OK so what else is
going on around this place? Well, I ordered
us a couple of trivia games from Walmart.com
and I had them free ship them to our Walmart
in town. Judy and I went and picked them up
yesterday. One is called I’m With Stupid and
the other is titled You Must Be An Idiot. We
like to play trivia games when we get together
with the family, so I thought I would find us
some cheap ones to bring that we could play.
Anyways, We’re looking forward to playing
them with the kinfolk. It’s 57 F degrees now
at 5 PM according to my weather program, but
the thermometer at our back door says 61 F.
All though a little heat might be escaping to
make it warmer, but I don’t think that much.
In any sense, it’s not freezing and the snow is
slowly melting away. Yes we still have tons
of that white stuff out there, but it’s gradually
diminishing. I just went outside to take a few
pictures of our receding snow and ice. Another
few days and it should be gone unless we have
some more weird weather pop up and we get
more snow. It doesn’t show it in the forecast
though :) Maybe winter has finally run its
course. We shall see hehehe. It has been
known to make a come back in the middle
to near the end of April. Yessiree bob we
might finally see a portion of spring YEAH.
I might then take my conga drums outside
and do some video recordings. It’s way too
hard to do in the wintertime when the wind
is blowing and not to mention the frigid cold.
My conga drum skins can’t handle too much
cold. They are skins ya know. My fingers
can handle it for a short period of time, but
even so, when moving my hands at that fast
pace they still get a little cold and I my index
finger on my left hand got frost bitten many
years ago and it still gives me the fits LOL.
The rest my fingers do fine. Anyways, it
seems that we might be seeing the grass
growing sometime in the future. Yet, for
now, it’s still buried beneath tons of snow.
I can’t wait to start taking some springtime
pictures. Of course the beginning will be
sort of muddy hehehe, being with all of the
snow melting, but one day the grass will
begin to grow again and our landlord will be
ticked off, because it means it’s mowing
season again. For some reason though I
think he likes to drive his tractor hehehe.
I’m looking forward to all of the flowers
blooming. Of course we don’t have none,
but all of the wild flowers that bloom will
display their beauty. It’s their defense
mechanism. They try to look so pretty
that we won’t mow them or whack them
with the weedeater LOL. It only works
for a while and then hasta la vista, baby :)
Summertime awakens my wants for more
picture taking and Judy and I will head
out on a picture taking drive. Benny and
Milo will join us. It’s nice to have pictures
that we can look back on and remember
the moments. Hey, that might work well
for a new poem title hehehe. We shall see.
I just went and looked at the thermometer
on the back door and it seems to be cooling
a bit. Now, it says 57 F. Well the day is
almost over with and it is supposed to get
down to 30 F degrees by morning. Judy
just got home. She’s early. She said her
brother Ricky is sick and in the hospital
now. Judy’s sister Trudy got off from work
early so Judy came home early. Anyways,
it looks like Judy’s brother Ricky is in
a bad way. He hadn’t eaten in a week and
could not get up out of his chair. Why he
didn’t call anybody I have no clue. The
phone was right beside him. Keep him
in your prayers. God will most assuredly
watch over him. I guess with that said,
I need to be doing my little search back
through all that I’ve written here to see
if I can find a title that’s better than the
one that I found a bit ago hehehe. So it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. It looks like the title I find a
little bit ago will do. So here goes :)

Remember The Moments

Those times from another
day we’ve explored
might display sometimes
that we had adored.
Seasons found changing
as dusk unto dawn,
remember the moments
as time moves along.
You might find that one day
you’re needing a smile,
remember the moments
of a times little while.
See how remembering
can bring you on through
passed all the sadness
that might be with you.
Remember the moments
of hearts found united
and you might find then
that you’re so excited.
For moments remembered
can still live and breathe
as a joyful remembrance
that you can believe.

So how was that? I hope it made some sense.
I also hope you enjoyed my rambling hehehe.
I know, you’re saying, How can this guy find
so much to talk about LOL? Well, I just start
writing and let my thoughts come alive. The
boys are asleep in the floor right behind and
beside Judy and I. When Milo saw that mom
was home he came back in here and plopped
down right behind me LOL. Amazing enough
he’s not barking for treats hehehe. I guess
he’s content. There’s not much else to tell ya
other than what I tell you almost every week
and that is I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems, but yet
with one of them this time a Christmas poem.
I also wrote once again 22 more haiku for
all of my haiku lovers out there :) I hope
you can find one or two of either or both that
you like. Now I believe it’s time for me to
begin my search 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. OK now,
where’s that freaken off switch hiding
this week? I saw ya duck for cover in my
Lifesaver Mint bag hehehe. Try harder
next time dude. Maybe try NOT peeking.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Pieces Of Time

An instant, a moment
with pieces of time
some seem as boredom,
some seem to rhyme.
Minutes that tick on
with pages of day
might become images
moments display.
Pieces of time
that somehow are found
when we each finally
just look around.
Often those pieces
of time fade from view
when we are burdened
with what others do.
So if we’d focus on
what that is needed
pieces of time might
be then succeeded.

Years Pass

If but a moment
is found on your mind
you might then recall what
passed days will find.
As the years pass by
and time fades away
we each will get older
as hair turns to grey.
Scenes that we’ve found
as our echoes rejoice
find the years pass
with a shadowy voice.
Mesmerizing things
from days that are gone
might become cinders
that are still burning on.
Becoming images
that burn so bright
the years pass on
to our memorized sight.
Things we remember
that will never fade away
are as the years pass
to moments of grey.

A Sea Of Thoughts

With waves crashing in
on a sunshiny day
a sea of thoughts is
a wonderful way.
Walking on the beach
with sand sifting true
a sea of thoughts
is me now with you.
Walking in the waves
of time evermore
we’re holding hands
on this old sandy shore.
An island of summer
as waters will toss
we are together
in a sea of thoughts.
This is but a dream
of a time faraway
you and I together
on one distant day.
A sea of thoughts
with you and I together
lasting in our minds
for now and forever.

To Judy Pearce
from ME :)

Impromptu

Beginning real quickly
without much a thought
sometimes we head out
with what we should not.
A little impromptu
from a hurried way
begins a little journey
that might turn out grey.
An impromptus time
that becomes a pattern
could possibly end up
like rings of Saturn.
Whirling around emptily
without thinking true
where you will end up
with one impromptu.
Often our journeys
we thought up real quick
lead us to gateways
to time frames so sick.
Yet a little impromptu
can brighten our days
if it’s not without
the will of good ways.

Pleasant Dreams

As night comes true
and sleep is found
pleasant dreams
come into town.
Needing only
you to find
pleasant dreams
within your mind.
Think of rainbows
colors bright
as you head off
in the night
Pleasant dreams
of fields of wonder
only needs your
mind to wander.
Relax and find
some peaceful streams
and you’ll find some
pleasant dreams.

Hidden Thoughts

We might hide
our thoughts inside,
but to God
they’re opened wide.
Hidden thoughts
that we don’t tell
might one day
find us in Hell.
For Lord God knows
what we think
and if it’s good
or if it stinks.
Hidden thoughts
are best applied
with God’s help
to cleanse inside.
Yet if goodness
is your mind
hidden thoughts
are good to find.
Being God knows
who you are
and your thoughts
each day by far.

Simply Remembering

Those December days
with Christmastime’s joy
I now remember
a young little boy.
It was my favorite
time to explore
gazing through windows
at the old toy store.
Watching the toy trains
just chugging around
as I knew Christmas
was coming to town.
Simply remembering
those pleasant days
brings me a journey
through Christmas arrays.
Scenes filled with laughter
with Christmas songs sung
I’m simply remembering
when I was so young.
Yet I never saw Christmas
with wintertime’s snow,
but I still dreamed of Santa
and his HoHoHo.
Those childhood moments
I’m simply remembering
are still alive
as those voices still sing.
My family and I
singing songs of such joy
simply remembering
when I was just a boy.

A Moment In Time

I sometimes think that
I might of lost true
sometime or moment
that got passed my view.
A moment in time
from day unto night
that might of seemed to
evade my sight.
We all have moments
that make it on passed
seen now this moment
within our own past.
Yet there are moments
that we might just gaze
sometimes a minute
in times better days.
With recollections
of yesterdays view
a moment in time
might not be for you.

Before The Dawn

Within the morning
sunshine is seen
finding its way passed
starlight and dream.
Before the dawn
the night does display
signs of its end
and beginning of day.
The essence of starlight
glimmers and shines
soon as the dawn breaks
with its designs.
Yet before the dawn
the glow does appear
that displays the time
that daytime is near.
Before the dawn
the night leaves a trace
found in the stars
as a smiling face.
Nighttime is moving
as time ticks on
to give us a glimmer that’s
before the dawn.

Towards Much Better

With our passed behind us
as time marches on
we can find so much better
with some moments gone.
Often with so many
their days move ahead
not seeking for better
but the same ways instead.
Not toward much better,
but repetitive strides
that were just burdensome
temptations dives.
So try to move forwards
towards much better
while trying truly
to be a go getter.
Don’t let your passed days
of hardships to win.
Towards much better
is the way to begin.

Haiku
for Apr 11, 2015

As you imagine
you might begin seeing truth
beyond perception.

The length of a day
gives some the time to mess up
and others to shine.

Harvesting anger
from a time from long ago
will burden today.

Kindness of others
might somehow rub off on you
and make you to smile.

Today’s own hardships
could be just but some moments
that we thought larger.

Looking at the snow
as the sun reflects on it
needs you with sunshades.

Modern medicines
will often not be so good
because it’s practice.

Looking for the truth
needs you to know what it is
so you will know it.

Beyond a shadow
holds some images we see
that might confuse us.

Living in the past
guarantees a bad future,
for it is poisoned.

The weather of time
comes with tornadoes of life
that relocate us.

A license to drive
does not allow you to speed
and ignore the rules.

A little heartache
might cause you to shy away
and not get too close.

Snow within April
still finds a place on the ground
in northeastern Maine.

Sharing little grins
could cause an epidemic
as smiles will blossom.

Pouring on laughter
might make ones think your crazy,
so don’t laugh so hard.

Yesterdays journey
could find itself in today
as some leftovers.

Beyond the starlight
there’s another world to find
as life beacons on.

Similar people
will often find perceptions
not so similar.

While clouds pass us by
they create fluffy artwork
in the sky of blue.

Spirits within us
are often from family
guiding us through life.

Knowing boundaries
and acknowledging their truth
helps us move forward.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s cold and windy today. It snowed a bit more yesterday
and Saturday. Judy and I went over to her sister Trudy’s
house yesterday Easter and we all had a great time. We
played a game called UBI. It was a real hard trivia game.
The World According to UBI is an ingenious game in which
players’ general knowledge, geographical awareness, and
luck, all combine with novel game play to provide hours
of enjoyment. Written in a language of its own and played
with a unique map of the world, UBI challenges players
to decipher clues given on UBI-and-answer cards and to
collect a RUBI (scoring piece) from each of the four
world zones en route to building the RUBI UBI pyramid.
It’s an old game from the 80’s hehehe. Judy’s sister had
it and we all played for hours. Judy and I won YEAH :)
We all filled up our tummies on food. Judy fixed a lot
of tasty treats also. Anyways, we took a few pictures.
I took a few of our drive over to their house. It still
looks like winter LOL. Benny went outside and played
in the snow for a bit while we were there. Milo stayed
inside and slept most of the time, but every once in a
while joined with Benny and visited with their cousins.
Trude and Dennis have 4 yorkies. Yeppers, it was a
good day, but we were glad to finally get home and
relax. Judy and I looked at the pictures that she and
I took. I hope you had a great Easter. It might snow
again a little bit tonight, but not much. We don’t need
anymore snow. We’ve still got tons of that white stuff
outside hehehe. So, now ya know why I was unable to
write my journal yesterday huh ;) I was going to try
and write it last night when we got home, but I was
way too tired and could barely see out of my one and
only good eye LOL. After searching a map of the
freaking world trying to locate things with just a clue
and not what it is we’re looking for is very taxing on
the eyes hehehe. Anyways, next topic. It looks as
though we might finally see some version of spring
before it’s over with . Right now it’s 33 F degrees
with tonight’s low supposedly at 26 F degrees. The
next few days are looking to be in the upper 30’s
to mid to upper 40’s for the highs. We might soon
be able to see some Earth. The roads aren’t too
bad, but they do have tons of frost heaves hehehe.
Frost heaves are where the road has cracked due to
the ice and the melted ice re freezing or an upthrust
of ground or pavement caused by the freezing of
moist soil. LOL a little trivia for ya. Yep, the old
roads are getting worse with every freeze hehehe.
This week doesn’t have much scheduled other than
searching for springtime. Judy’s in the kitchen now
washing dishes. We might be eating lunch in a bit.
Of course it wasn’t but a couple of hours ago that
we ate breakfast hehehe. She just strolled back in
here and is once again browsing Facebook. I will
have to upload a few of the pictures that we took
yesterday. Judy has already uploaded a couple :)
I’m going to try like the dickens to finally get my
PC boxed up and sent to Texas this week hehehe.
With all of the weather conditions and health issues
it’s been hard lately, but Judy is going to help me
get the PC boxed up this evening. It’s hard to get
the flaps taped with just 2 hands LOL. So, what
else is going on around this place. I got a call from
my cousin Greg just a bit ago. It’s always great
to hear from him. He keeps me up to date on all
that is happening in the family. Though I do sort
of keep up to date on Facebook hehehe. I think
he just likes to call and talk. Him and his brother
Randy were 2 of my favorite cousins. We didn’t
get to spend much time together, but when we
did, I enjoyed it. Now being much older I’ve
found a little more common ground with a few
that before I didn’t have. I guess as years are
added one onto the other our age differences
mean less. Plus many of my class mates have
grown beyond all of their grade school clicks
and begun to see what was right before their
eyes. Yes, years have a way of changing ones
perception of the past and present as well as
the future. A year to a teenager seems as an
eternity, but as the years are gathered, the
years also change their format. What you
thought important as a child will often become
a laughable moment. That even includes the
years passed our childhood. While we grow
older our viewpoints might be swayed by our
mistakes and lessons learned. Yes, God is
always watching over us, but He expects us
to do our part and learn from our mistakes.
If we made no mistakes, we would have no
lessons to learn by. The human race is built
on errors. What didn’t work one way gave
the momentum to try other ways and thus
growth is made. God gave us differences
which are our imperfections that make us to
be perfect in His Eyes, for if we were all
the same, then we would have no unique
personal qualities and we would not grow.
It’s differences that spawn growth. Don’t
think of yourself as dumb just because you
can’t do what another can do. You are you
and you are unique. Let your gifts shine in
The Eyes of God. I guess I have gone and
rambled quite enough haven’t I hehehehe.
So I reckon it’s time for me to be taking my
lil journey back through all that I’ve written
here, to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I found a good title and now after
checking I see that it’s been used, so next.
OK, so I found a fairly good title now that
I haven’t used yet hehehe. So here goes :)

No Mistakes

Timeless turns
of our heartaches
teach us more
than no mistakes.
Lessons learned
as time moves on
finds us with
what’s right and wrong.
No mistakes
of pages turned
shows so few
of lessons learned.
Yet so many
learn to view
times mistakes
from me and you.
But a baker
learns what bakes
from the trials,
not no mistakes.

OK, so there ya go hehehe. I hope my rambling
didn’t put ya to sleep and you maybe enjoyed the
poem. I know the poem might not of been one of
my better ones, but it’ll have to do LOL. I’ve got
the whole family in here now. Judy is browsing the
Internet looking for a dog washtub. Both of us are
having trouble kneeling down at the bathtub and
washing them and then cleaning up the bathtub.
Anyways, she’s looking :) The boys are lying in
the floor between Judy and I. I think they are
pooped from trying to keep up with all of their
little cousins yesterday hehehe. I know Milo is.
He’s the eldest of them all. There’s not much
else to tell you other than what I tell you every
week and that is, I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems, but nope, no
Christmas poems this week. I might get back
into writing them again soon hehehe. Anyways,
I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either
or both that you like. Now I believe it’s time
for me to be searching for that not so elusive
off switch, but not before I wish you a most
wonderful God filled week and a belated Happy
Easter. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now to find that freaken off switch :)
I see ya you little whippersnapper. Hiding
behind my Cheetoes almost worked, but I’ve
got the munchies and there ya are :) hehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

April Snow

In northern Maine
it often shows
signs of times
how April snows.
The white outside
is coming down
bulding quickly
on the ground.
I know one day
that soon will be
April days
no snow to see.
Yet this moment
I see white
near and far
within my sight.
Falling quickly
sure to show
nothern Maine
with April snow.

Winter Lives On

In seasons to come
winter lives on
maybe remembered
dusk unto dawn.
Wintertime’s moment
might be extended
if spring and summer
somehow befriend it.
Seasonal doorways
open and close
sometimes with winter
with temps in the lows.
Winter lives on now
as windows display
beginnings of April
confusions array.
Yet way up northward
dusk unto dawn
6 months displays how
winter lives on.

Illusion

Truth of believing
is sometimes not real
for mere illusions
our hands cannot feel.
Sometimes our heart
will find much confusion
within reality
of disillusion.
If but a moment
guides you astray
seek for Lord Jesus
to show you the way.
For He is truly
the Savior of times
not just illusion
that leads to land mines.
Let yourself see now
past the confusion
and find the truth
that’s not just illusion.

Deep Ocean Mind

A wave of existence
with many a kind
displays the stories
a deep ocean mind.
Deep down beneath the
waves that we see
a deep ocean mind
lives in you and me.
We’ve found ourselves
in waves that roll in
as we’ve discovered
how things will begin.
A deep ocean mind
of rhythmic tides
brings some conclusions
of scenes certain size.
Often our stories
will be so inclined
to display virtues
a deep ocean mind.

As The Earth Turns

Our different lifestyles
from every which way
sometimes cause problems
with so much to say.
As the Earth turns
it displays our voices
with many people
and all of their choices.
God gave this planet
to be for us all
as the Earth turns
from winter to fall.
Seasons between them
as the Earth turns
spring unto summer
is what it discerns.
With every doorway
that rotates around
as the Earth turns
displays sight and sound.
Many a pathway
with so many choices
displays the ventures
of so many voices.
Counted perceptions
with each one unique
as the Earth turns
so many will speak.
So as we find that
we each have concerns
we might find differences
as the Earth turns.

Life As It May

A looking glass mind
with will and a way
describes then so many
their life as it may.
Joined by conclusions
in reflections of mind
a looking glass viewpoint
sees time after time.
Life as it might be
or maybe not so
brings ones conclusions
the wrong way to go.
Yet often patterns
will bring forth a while
painted with morals
with lesser a smile.
Look for the beauty
within every day
and see what God’s done
life as it may.
Look beyond problems
and see what that’s good
life as it may
be misunderstood.
Let not the doorways
of troublesome times
to be what that’s only
your daily designs.
See all the blessings
of each passing day
as you’re evolving
life as it may.

Whispers Of Time

Found in a valley
are whispers of time
seen as a portion
of blessings to find.
Whispering ventures
footprints display
times that have passed on
day after day.
Winds blowing briskly
with voices we hear
the whispers of time
of year after year.
Spoke as an author
written by birds
with all their chatter
of so distant words.
A whisper of time
begins with a scene
white unto winter
green within spring.
With every whisper
a voice will appear
speaking of seasons
year after year.

A Slippery Road

A slippery wintery
roads design
now is enshrouding
what that’s springtime.
The season is taunted
with winter snow
supposed to be springtime
seen to and fro.
Yet on this day of
northeastern Maine
a slippery road
seems so insane.
Supposed to be springtime
not cold and white
a slippery road
is now in my sight.
It seems that springtime
will never be
but a slippery road
of which I can see.

The Day After Now

Without yesterday
our now days would be
a moment without
some lessons to see.
We learn from our past,
but some maybe not
for the day after now
their past is forgot.
The day after now
is feathered with tools
that comes from lessons
maybe as fools.
Times found so foolishly
that came before
the day after now
gives us to explore.
Lessons from time frames
then did not see,
but the day after now
shows our history.

It’s So Pointless

To find only anger
in things that are done
makes it real hard to
see shining sun.
Life in a bubble
filled with just pain
might leave you nothing
but just insane.
For it’s so pointless
to just look down
when life and love
can surely be found.
It might not be what all
you think is right,
but often it’s us that
create the sight.
It’s so pointless to
bring up the past,
when now is a brand new
daily forecast.

Haiku
for Apr 4, 2015

With a simple breath
life can be spread all around
with words of Jesus.

It takes but three words
to change our destination
and they’re I love you.

With many talking
there might be less listening,
because it’s just gossip.

Due to ignorance
many speak without thinking
and end up lonely.

Minutes in a day
add up to hours we’ve missed
due to lack of care.

In a looking glass
one might see only beauty,
but the truth lies deep.

A passionate soul
reaches to help another
even when in pain.

Peace has a value
that is bought with agreeing
and not mere money.

Looking for snowflakes
in a wintery morning
might find you a few.

Beyond our eyesight
holds many things that are real,
but we just can’t see.

When two have bonded
the stories are made longer
as they’re united.

The past leaves echoes
that might be heard tomorrow,
yet not so proudly.

The stars in the sky
twinkle their on going words
as stories of night.

Painting a picture
needs an imagination
to bring it to life.

Lifestyles of others
do not need to be as ours,
for we are not them.

Simple minds of time
might find a few amazement’s
in the lesser things.

A voice in our head
could be our conscience speaking
discerning what’s right.

Sometimes what we see
is not what that’s really there
as eyes will play tricks.

When today is done
it leaves tomorrow to come
in today’s shadows.

When the wind’s blowing
it seems to be saying words
spoken in a breath.

A forest of trees
gives forth a story of time
with branches of leaves.

Tomorrow’s today
will be without this moment,
but lessons live on.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

On My Shoulder

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

To dad
I love you
Bill

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

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Approaching Springtime

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

Under The Moonlight

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

It Takes Two

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

Beyond The Portal

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

Just Imagine

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

Springtime’s Lullaby

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

Ocean Of Wisdom

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

All Day

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

The Evening Shade

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

A Longing Spirit

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

Haiku
for Mar 28, 2015

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

Losing perception
makes distant thoughts deception
that could hurt someone.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Say Hello

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

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

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Without Thinking True

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

Looking Through The Darkness

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

The True Joy Of Life

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

Within A Little Prayer

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

Time Flies By

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

The Imaginary Fire

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

From William Earl Pearce II

Looking For Mysteries

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

Grinding Pages

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

The Last Of Winter

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

Searching For Myself

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

Haiku
for Mar 21, 2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

People without heart
will trample your existence
without thinking twice.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Just Accept What That Is

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

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

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Tomorrow’s Gaze

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

A Kiss of Winter

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

Disheartened Plans

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

Not Forgotten

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

Life Begins

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

Winter Lives

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

Turbulent Thoughts

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

Waiting On God

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

A Snow Looking Cloud

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

My Flashlight

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

Haiku
for Mar 14, 2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nearing tomorrow
finds episodes imagined
that may not come true.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Building Blocks Of Life

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

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

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Twilight Solitude

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

Without Delay

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

Through The Mist

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

Heartstrings

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

Phoenix Rising

phoenix rising

touch and voice
phoenix rising

Letting passed days

Let your passed days
become found
phoenix rising
better ground.

A Room of Thoughts

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

The Great Thaw

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

Looking Down

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

A Snow White Canvas

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

Inner Light

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

Haiku
for Mar 6,  2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

Filled With His Dazzles

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

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

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

The Hermit

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

Faces Of Home

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

Canopy Of Stars

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

A Winter’s Morning

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

Sapphire Days

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

A Glistening Lake

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

Spirit Of Trees

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

A Touch Without Touch

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

Beyond The Lakes

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

A Frozen Pond

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

Haiku
for Feb 28,  2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Journeys of many
becomes as footsteps followed
repeating mistakes.

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

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

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

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

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

A tiny anthill
has many ants inside it
working together.

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

In Other Words

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

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

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

The Far Sky

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

Open Book

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

Snow Street

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

The Night Sky

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

Angels of Dawn

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

Of Mask And Shadow

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

Eyes In The Dark

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

Leftover Dreams

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

Rise

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

A Snowy Lullaby

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

Haiku
for Feb 20,  2015

Minds found unopened
lose the possibilities
and become stagnate.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Life is a porthole
through yesterdays tomorrow
found within today.

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

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

Fantasy living
brings chances for delusion
causing much sadness.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

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

More Than A Memory

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

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

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Lost and Found

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

Without The Snow

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

Hands Held Tight

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

Things We’ve Seen

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

Musical Winds

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

A New Place In Time

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

Find A Smile

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

This Room Of Time

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

The Whitest Snow

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

My Lovely Valentine

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

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

Haiku
for Feb 14,  2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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