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
secrets made
paths are counted
and displayed.
For some secrets
come to shine
from mistakes of
time to time.
Secret paths
that many make
often lead to
times mistake.
Not allowing
ones to know
can find life that
ends in woe.
If one knows your
secret paths
you might smile
your shadows cast.
For with secrets
no one knows
what’s your highs
and what’s your lows.
God is there to
help your through
secret paths
that live in you.

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.
