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.
