None The Less

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well it’s that time once again that I usually begin
rambling incessantly and so I guess I’ll not change
that course of action LOL.  I hope life is treating
you well.  Judy and I are hanging in there as the
weather goes back and forth with its indecision’s
of what to do.  Today’s supposed to be the first
day of spring right.  Tomorrow we’re expecting
3-5 inches of snow and 16 F degrees by morning
and a high of 31 F degrees for the day. There’s
supposed to be more snow to come Tuesday eve
and Wednesday morning then snow for Thursday
and Friday.  That goes on through the weekend.
So you see,  it’s not looking much like spring up
here which is fairly normal for us.  Yeppers it’s
still white outside.  Me and the boys took a little
walk in the field the other day.  OK, I took a walk.
They took a run.  Hard to run in this stuff with my
feet often breaking through the ice and sinking
in the snow below it.  We did have a good time.
I got a lot of pictures and videos of them and
I even did a video of me with the boys.  I had to
bring my tripod outside to do that LOL,  but
then some of those pictures were in last weeks
stationery journal.  I did though get a few nice
pictures of me and the boys while we were in
the car waiting for Judy.  She had a doctors
appointment and me and the boys waited in the
car for her.  We had a little selfy time hehehe.
It’s kind of chilly today,  but not too bad.  It’s
only 31 F degrees.  That in my book is fairly
warm compared to what it could be hehehe.
Rocky’s lying in the floor right behind me and
Benny is in the living room more than likely
lying in his favorite recliner standing guard 🙂
Yep,  he’s our little watch dog.  He might be
just a tad overly active watch dog,  but none
the less he likes to keep us informed about
anything he might think we need to know LOL.
When Rocky hears him bark,  he heads off
running to see if he needs his help hehehe 🙂
Ok,  so what else is going on at the Peace’s
Place?  Well,  Judy went over to her sister’s
house last night for their craft night.  All of
the sisters or should I say most of them go
as well as the daughters and each month they
pick a craft for them all to do and they spend
hours in their creativity.  Last nights craft was
a wreath.  Judy took pictures of everyone’s
wreath and I might be a tad prejudice,  but
I think Judy’s is the best hehehe.  It came out
quite nice.  I’ll add it into my stationery for
all of you that are getting that style of email
from me.  Of course all of you that are on web
mail or receiving plain text version,  you will
have to ask me to send a picture or better yet,
sign up to Facebook and add me and also Judy
as friends.  Then, you’ll be able look at all of
the pictures that we have uploaded hehehe.
Just add me using my email address and then
when I’m your friend you can find Judy in
my profile as wife and click on her to add
her.  So,  what else is there to tell ya?????
Well,  my collar bone is hurting really bad.
I think my old joints are wearing out.  Judy
thinks the ball socket might be worn and it’s
making it real hard to move and painful at
all times.  But,  I guess that’s the price for
all of my falling on the ice hehehe.  I reckon
that all of my falls have damaged my joints
quite a bit.  LOL that’s why I am never too
excited to hear that FALL is coming hehehe.
Yes I love autumn,  but not FALL 🙂  You get
my drift?  I love snow,  but not when it melts
and refreezes turning into that old slippery
sliding ice. I do have cleats that attach to
the soles of my shoes,  but I often forget to
put them on my shoes and I can’t just leave
them attached,  because I can’t wear the
cleats in the house.  Plus they would begin
to be stretched out to where they wouldn’t
stay attached and they would fall off at the
most un apropos times LOL.  I have had
that happen and that is why when I bought
some new cleats I make a point to remove
them from my shoes when I come inside or
take my shoes off.  Though these are a bit
more of a higher quality than the others,
but none the less,  they’ll still stretch out.
I’ve just about ran out of things to ramble
about hehehe.  Don’t that just put tingles
in your grinner 🙂  Yep,  the Peace’s Place
is still hanging in there as life throws its
many curve balls at us.  We have our share
of problems,  but with the Grace of God we
are surviving.  His blessings are all around
us.  We might not see them,  but they are
there.  Be thankful for the blessings that
you know not of.  In later dates you might
then see the blessings that were with you
in the past.  Many times it’s all about the
timing and our perception.  Most of the
time we will only see the obvious and not
see what’s hidden in a moment.  Let God
shine in your life with blessings that you
will maybe never ever see,  but as others
look at you they’ll see them clearly.  Be
always grateful for God’s miracles that
are at work beyond what we understand.
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 me a good
word or phrase that I can use for the title
for today’s brand new poem.  So it’s away
I go to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I spied a title just a little ways back
in my writing that will work well for a title.
Now to see if I can do anything with it 🙂
Here’s goes,  again hehehehehehehehe.

None The Less

Beyond our actions
thoughts acquire,
none the less
might build a fire.
Thinking truly
too much gain,
might just make
you go insane.
None the less
what is not thought
might just find
you hurt a lot.
The waging game
from here to there
is sometimes best
when it’s done fair.
Not predicting
how ones fall
when you cheat
to win it all.
For you might just
find the best
when you’re honest
none the less.

There ya go.  I hope that makes a little bit of
sense to ya.  If not,  then maybe next week 🙂
It’s 6:11 PM now and 30 F degrees.  That’s
not too bad still.  I’m guessing that the boys
will want to go out and play in the snow agin
this week while it’s snowing.  I think we have
2 snow dogs here hehehe.  Dear Milo wasn’t
too hip with the snow,  but he would go out
with Benny for a while and play with him when
he was in better health.  I’m guessing that he
is at Rainbow Bridge enjoying the sunshine
while he waits for us to join him and prance
on over to Heaven together.  Who knows
maybe even Pepper is waiting for us and has
met Milo as they now play together.  Yes I
still think of my friend that I had when I was
a kid.  She was a great dog/girl and friend.
In any case,  the day we all are joined once
again and never to be separated again will
be the greatest.  Well,  Rocky is still right
behind me in the floor asleep.  I’ve heard
our little guard dog barking ever so often
and Rocky has gone to check on him,  but
as it turns out,  Benny was maybe barking
at the ghost of Milo or something hehehehe.
Milo’s spirit is always with us.  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,  but with 1 sort of Christmassy.
Also once again I wrote 22 haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
So,  now I believe it’s time for me to be
searching for that darned old off switch
that is really poor at the game of hide and
seek hehehe,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend and 1st day
of spring or what ever’s left of it and a
most blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now to find
Mr. Off Switch.  Where oh where can
he be hiding,  can he be hiding in my
clear sight?  No I believe he put some
effort in his hiding this week hehehehe.
No logic in it, but effort,  yes effort LOL.
I bet it took a while for you to climb up
to the top of the ceiling so to hide in this
cheap old chandelier hehehehe.  I just
happened to stretch and look up and
there ya were,  hanging onto the light
bulb.  Gotcha,  see ya Click zzzzzzzz.
Now let’s see ya get down hehehehehe.

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

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

Making Today

While now might seem sad,
it can change oh so true
with a little bit of effort
from what all you do.
The patterns that we’ve started
can become as our past,
while the future’s creating
a new days contrast.
Turning all the bad times
into some better times
is often by perception
of our lemons and limes.
A forest of solitude
can become well applied
if you let God to help you
find peace from inside.
Right now is a moment
that can change in a way
with a little bit of effort
while making today.

Shattered

Splattered details
on our windows
sometimes seem as
innuendoes.
Shattered  places
we remember
might still burn as
brightest ember.
Shattered moments
that hurt bad
can be blessings
that we’ve had.
For each shattered
timeless way
turns to lessons
a later day.
So be thankful
for what splattered
for God strengthens
all that shattered.

Icy Flavors

Oceans billows
snowy scenes
with some blues
and with some greens.
As reflections
far and wide
icy flavors
coincide.
Painted hillsides
say hello,
icy flavors
seem to grow.
Snowflake morsels
fall so free
icy flavors
that I see.
Then they’re landing
is so right
icy flavors
painted white.

To Deceive

If you only
seek to gain
what that others
do attain,
then you lose
yourself in time
seeking for the
wrong design.
To deceive
and not say true
what there is
in what you do,
then you’ll find
that they may learn
and that friendship
might adjourn.
If you practice
to deceive
then you’ll watch
your friends to leave.

Minutes Well Counted

Lines on a persons face
discern of some scenes
minutes well counted
of the greatest cuisines.
Seeming as paintings
with days found to see
minutes well counted
on you and on me.
Time becomes an artist
that paints oh so fine
minutes well counted
of our time after time.
When lost in a mirror
your eyes might discern
minutes well counted
from all you did learn.
The days and years display
each smile and each frown
minutes well counted
that we’ve been around.
Portions of turnstiles
will open and close
minutes well counted
the choices we chose.
So as each day passes
just know God is there
minutes well counted
that might not seem fair,
but as every moment
and line on your face
minutes well counted
are filled with God’s grace.
You might not be aware
of the scenes that shine
minutes well counted
of God’s Own design.
Yet but a moments time
you might one day see
minutes well counted
to wondrous degree.
So when you are weary
and filled full of fear
minutes well counted
might one day appear.
God with His blessings
will show you so true
minutes well counted
that lived within you.

Perceptive

Sometimes perception
is not all that great,
for what we’re seeing
is early or late.
Perceptive people
will often surmise
what they are seeing
as moments disguise.
Yet many people
are not what they seem,
so our perceptiveness
might be a dream.
Life in a minutes time
can become clouded
with those perceptive
a little bit shrouded.
For as time passes
the truth might reveal
what that perceptiveness
did not see real.
Those of a moments time
might then display
to those so perceptive
a much different way.

Time In A Bottle

Wintertime’s Christmas
is counted and gained
with all the blessings
that we have attained.
Christmastimes journeys
that our minds may take
often are snow filled
with snowmen to make.
Time in a bottle
with Santa to fly
reindeer and sleighbells
so high in the sky.
Christmas Eve’s  pathway
is words in a book
children to dream of
and then have a look.
Time in a bottle
with Christmas to find
displays the journey,
that wonderful time.
Pages then fluttered
as children read on
time in a bottle
from Eve until dawn.
They might fall asleep
while waiting that night,
but time in a bottle
shows Christmas delight.

Portions Of Plenty

The needs of our greed
are often fulfilled
maybe not what with
our hopes have instilled.
Portions of plenty
might not seem enough,
but often it’s what all
we need to get tough.
Sometimes our wanting
is not found so real,
while what we are needing
is what we can feel.
Yet then so often
the needs God provide
will seem as so wrong
when our greed is applied.
Portions of plenty
are poured out each day,
but often it’s us just
looking away.
So many people
could help those in need
with God given blessings
to plant them a seed.
Portions of plenty
are provided to share,
so why not do more then
than just give a prayer.
If you are able
to help ones so empty
share of your wealth then
portions of plenty.

Northern Lights

My heart skips a beat
as I dream of the sights
scenes to encounter
as those northern lights.
The mesmerizing beauty
with lights all aglow
is found as I dream of
that northern hello.
Often I go outside
to search through the skies,
but trees in the distance
are all that will rise.
For now mere photographs
only show true
the northern lights of
bright green and blue.
Maybe some red then
to shine in the nights,
for this is what I dream of
those great northern lights.

This Room Of Dreams

While minutes tick onwards
and time moves along
this room of dreams is
filled full of song.
Singing of memories
that live in the walls
bouncing around
like little rubber balls.
This room of memories
shares every time
a portion of blessings
that I use as rhyme.
Portions of mishap
and portions of smile
this room of dreams
goes many a mile.
Carrying pathways
of passed days to now
this room of dreams
might surely say wow.
Dormant the moments
is what timeless seems,
but alive it becomes
in this room of dreams.

Haiku
for Mar 19,  2016

A day of springtime
can be found within winter
if you look closely.

The life of a rose
finds its beauty well hidden
through scenes of winter.

Dusk brings us nighttime
with stars that dance in the sky
and a moon so bright.

Lessons from a mouse
teach to be very careful
not to spring the trap.

Having a flower
does not guarantee its bloom,
for it needs much love.

A patient person
will acquire many lessons
from ones impatience.

The door that squeaks most
will so often get the oil,
but in a rough way.

Various turnstiles
might seem to be locked tightly.
You just need the key.

The portrait of man
is that of an imagery
that many can be.

Guiding lights of night
will often be lightning bugs
fluttering about.

A simple twinkle
from a star within nighttime
can induce passion.

The hereafter life
holds a place known as Heaven
that is eternity.

Anchoring yourself
to the troubles of your past
will prevent your growth.

Trials of a tree
are as branches in snowstorms
awaiting for spring.

Shadows of a leaf
will flutter just like a ghost
and then fade from sight.

Answers to a flame
are as embers in a dream
sought to burn again.

Decisive people
might overlook the best thing,
being too picky.

Glimmers of hopeful
live in the eyes of many,
that some never thought.

The hard times of youth
tend to hide all the lessons,
until we are grown.

Gradient hillsides
can become too steep to walk
and cause us to climb.

The strength of true love
is unmatchable to hate,
for love conquers all.

Looking to the stars
you might find many answers
within your own eyes.
