ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you have been doing well.  This passed
week has been a great one for me.  I turned 60
last Wednesday Aug 31.  Judy and I took a lil
picture taking drive down some back roads on
our way up to Presque Isle to have my birthday
dinner at the Governor’s Restaurant.  We got
a lot of nice pictures and OH MY,  the food 🙂
The Governor’s Restaurant had put 10 dollars
on my Governor’s card and so we used that to
help pay for our dinner.  Judy had BBQ ribs
and I had the Seafood Platter.  Neither of us
could eat it all,  so we asked for a take home
box.  There was enough left for at least two
more good meals LOL.  So all in all,  it was
not that expensive when you consider that it
provided us both 3 meals.  The weather up
this way is very nice.  Yesterday (Saturday)
was a high of 58 F. Today’s high is 75 F and
that is what it is right this moment.  Yeppers,
it’s 3 PM and very nice outside.  Monday of
last week I took the boys on a little field trip
and took pictures of the add on that our dear
landlord is gonna one day soon (hopefully) 🙂
attach to our home.  Benny and Rocky went
all around it investigating it LOL.  I’ll add a
picture of it in the stationery.  As I said,  the
week has very blissful.  Judy has been busy
doing more painting.  I began a second try
at painting,  but had to stop to let the paint
dry so I could continue and haven’t yet to
of finished it.  Of course I don’t expect it to
be much better than my last,  but we shall
see 🙂  So that’s something I am hoping to
get done maybe tomorrow if there aren’t
too many clouds in the sky.  We don’t have
much lighting in the living room and so we
have to do painting with the curtains opened
to let in the sunlight.  Though Judy’s begun
doing many of her paintings in here and
that is a thought,  being the picture that I
printed out for me to paint is not all that
great.  My printer is not working well and
the picture is sketchy at most LOL.  So,
if I do the painting in here,  I can use the
picture off of my computer to continue 🙂
No matter,  one way or another,  one day
or another it’ll get done hehehe.  I could
hear Rocky barking just now and had to
go and let the boys in.  Benny lets rocky
do all of the barking,  just like he used to
do with Milo LOL.  The shadows of Milo
are alive in our home.  His spirit is alive
and well.  Anyways,  next topic if I can
think of one hehehe.  Judy went down to
Bangor with her sister Friday and while
she was gone,  I took the boys and we
went to town and did a little shopping
and paying bills.  Then on the way home
I stopped off at Dunkin Donuts and got
Judy and I a dozen donuts for later,  then
I took a little scenic back roads picture
taking drive.  The boys loved it.  I rolled
down the back windows and they spent
most of the time looking out the windows
and also poking their heads up between
the seats to say howdy from time to time.
I found many things to take pictures of 🙂
I’d drive for a while and then stop when
I saw something good to take pictures
of,  then get out and walk around and
take pictures.  Though there were a few
times I just held the camera up to the
front or side window and snapped a few
photos not knowing if I was actually
getting any decent pictures,  but then
hey,  it’s not like I’m wasting film like
the days of old LOL.  Yeppers  me and
the boys had a good drive.  It was just
them and me on the old country roads.
We passed by a few combines doing the
harvest and I stopped and got a few shots
of them as they smiled and waved at me.
Yep  last week was pretty nice.  Judy
went with her sister this morning back
up to Eagle Lake to see their brother
and mom.  So it’s just me and the boys
once again.  They’ve grown quite used
to it.  They’re both in here with me now
lying in the floor.  I had to stop a bit
ago and give Rocky a little bath.  He
had a poopy butt LOL.  He was ecstatic
when I did that and got done.  The silly
things get all full of spunk especially
after the bath hehehe.  I could tell that
something was wrong because his tail
was down and he always has it curled
up and a happy camper.  So I checked
and sure enough,  he needed a bath 🙂
We are so thankful to have these little
boys with us.  They brighten our days
with their wagging tails and little smiles.
I am just hoping and praying that if our
landlord sells the property that we are
not without a home.  I guess we will
have to wait and see.  There are things
that I do not like about this place,  but
there are many things that I love about
living up here out in the country.  The
privacy and ability to make as much
noise on my conga drums as I want 🙂
I couldn’t do that in town.  Plus I love
the snow and the seasons.  All my life
I hated the Texas weather being I’m so
hot natured and snow is not something
that there is much of,  at least where
we lived.  It does get cold up here,  but
like I said,  I’m hot natured so the cold
I can deal with LOL.  Thank You God
for all of the blessings that You have
given us and Your unending love and
forgiveness.  I reckon it’s time for me
to be looking back on all that I have
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 little place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title about a 3rd of the way
back in my rambling about Rocky LOL.
Now to see what I can do with it.  Here
goes nothing hehehe.  Maybe so,  but
I hope not LOL.

Something Was Wrong

Those times we stop
and look around
and think we hear
a wrongful sound,
might be the times
we’ve surely heard
a moments sound
that’s so absurd.
A time we knew
something was wrong,
a smell,  a noise
or saddened song.
The scenes we see
from day to night
show the minutes
wrong and right.
So as moments
come into frame
pay close attention
times to attain.
For then you’ll know
something was wrong
when life displays
a time that’s gone.
A saddened scene
that time displays
might then be
of wrongful ways.
A time you knew
that wasn’t right
something was wrong
God shed His Light.
Then the passage
times expose
will find a way
to lose the lows.
Something wrongful
will be changed
a better time
that God arranged.

There ya go LOL.  A poem that began with
a title of me talking about Rocky hehehe 🙂
Yep,  it’s weird how that poem came about,
but hey,  it worked,  I think LOL!  Well the
boys have moved off into the living room and
are now sitting in front of the door waiting
for Judy to get home.  They’ll ever so often
come and poke their lil heads in here to see
what I’m doing and then head back to their
look out stations LOL.  It’s still 75 F degrees,
but now it’s 5 PM 😉  It looks as though that
is pretty much the weather for the majority
of the week.  There might be a day or so in
the low 80’s,  but that ain’t too bad hehehe.
Oh yea,  good news,  my sister is now 100%
cancer free.  Thank You God 🙂  Hallelujah.
There isn’t much else that I can think of to
tell you,  other than the normal and that is,
I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yep,
10 more poems with an extra that makes
11.  Among those poems are 3 Christmas
poems.  I also wrote 22 more haiku for all
of the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you
can find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like.  Now I believe it’s time for me to be
searching for that confounded off switch,
but not before I wish you all a wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and truly
blessings filled week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now,   where is
that ornery off switch trying (using that
term very loosely hehehe) to hide?  Well,
I be a monkeys uncle (no comments from
my daughter Jamye now LOL)  I think
I see that little varmint hiding within the
pajama pieces that I cut off of the legs
of my pajamas,  because they were too
long.  Yep,  I see ya you dad gum little
whippersnapper hehehe.  Next time try
hiding in or even behind them.  Not on
them.  I’m using them as dust cloths,  so
they might still be around 🙂  Maybe next
week you’ll hide a little better,  but guess
what,  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzz.

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

P.S  A link to Judy’s new book as at
the end of the journal along with the
others.  Enjoy 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+1 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Tracks Of Time

Journeys forward
time begins
bringing choices
there and then.
Tracks of time
are forged upon
times momentum
traveled on.
Scenes displaying
timeless ways
found within
the distant days.
Signs are painted
times will pass
with a trains own
shadows casts.
Then that whistle
of design
tells the story
tracks of time.

Seascape Mind

Those magical moments
of a seascape mind
are a page full of waves
in an essence of time.
Seagulls found flying
searching the shore
with their seascape mind
above the ocean floor.
Waves come a crashing
in the mornings sunrise
with seagulls searching
for food to arrive.
Then a photographer
seeks for a view
with a seascape mind
of the ocean blue.
Life’s filled with magic
as minutes will find
when scenes come alive
in a seascape mind.

A Year Is Just A Year

Time is just a number
that many focus on,
a year is just a year
as passed days are gone.
Life is just a rhythm
that has many drums,
you and I together
might be different sums.
Life is a mystery
providing many scenes,
a year is just a year
with so many dreams.
Some find beginnings
of each day and night
a time that’s discovered
that’s filled full of fright.
Then many others
will use time sincere,
for now’s just a moment
a year is just a year.

A Stream,  A Dream

A time sublime
with seasons sights,
becomes a stage
of days and nights.
A stream,  a dream
of thereunto
can then become
a wondrous view.
A page,  an age
of when and where
can be a time
that none compare.
A flights delight
becomes a bird,
a time,  a rhyme
that minutes heard.
Without a glance
a certain scene
is scent and sound,
a stream,  a dream.

Repetitious

Mistakes we make
with choices made
in time are only
how we wade.
For too often
wrongly going
is so often
how we’re growing.
Repetitious
timely fashions
are so often
chosen rations.
Repeating every
thing you do
is often showing
what that’s you.
Repetitious
can be good
if you’re doing
what you should.

When The Chime Chimes

Christmas bells ringing,
time begins showing
when the chime chimes
wintertime’s snowing.
Seasonal ventures
with stories to hear,
when the chime chimes
of our yesteryear.
Books read to children
of seasons delight
about Christmas wonders
that came into sight.
When the chime chimes
a miracle sings,
a time for an angel
to then get his wings.
Christmas with magic
and love so alive,
when the chime chimes
it’s time to revive.
Finding all the blessings
from wonderful signs,
Christmas delightful
when the chime chimes.
God and His Majesty
brings forth a view,
when the chime chimes
from old to anew.
Christmas gives chances
to seek out a smile
when the chime chimes
with love to compile.
Look passed the misery
and see what that’s there
when the chime chimes
your answers to prayer.
Often many answers
to prayers you and I
are answered as blessings
that we know not why.
God has His reasons
to do what He does
when the chime chimes
of times just because.
So within Christmas
give God your designs
and make them your patterns
when the chime chimes.

Paths Through Snow

Time remembers
what all it’s shown
daylight to dark
and all that is known.
Heartbeats of windows
with ones looking through
time becomes echoes
of then thereunto.
Wintertime’s wonders
December’s expose
up in the winter world
where all it snows.
Christmas is heightened
with everything seen
snow colored pathways
that are no longer green.
Time remembers
Christmastime cheer
with the paths through snow
of Santa’s reindeer.
Time becomes magic
as jingles of bells
with all the stories
our lifetime foretells.
Peace in the meadows
Christmas Eve night
waiting for Santa Claus
to then take flight.
Even the bible stories
enlightened to read
Jesus Christ coming
to give what we need.
Blessings uncountable
become the view
time frames of Christmas
old and anew.
Scenes are so wondrous
in each to and fro
as I remember the
paths through snow.

A Moment Begins

The hands of a clock
show minutes to gain
time frames surmounted
that we’re to attain.
A moment begins
even when we’re still,
for time will continue
with things to fulfill.
A moment begins
when right then is gone,
for life will always
move on and on.
Found as a spirit
known as a ghost,
or along with Jesus
our Heavenly Host.
Time is a pathway
that’s maybe not seen
as ones continue
to live in a dream.
Sometimes a dreamer
will lose their way
as a moment begins
in their day to day.
Don’t let the dreamworld
to flourish your sins.
Let God to guide you
as a moment begins.

Effigy

A persons style,
a persons stance,
a timeless gaze
sees romance.
A painted picture
of someone
a sight in time
that’s said and done.
It’s an effigy
upon a coin.
A face that’s found
that times conjoin.
A little smile
of a distance face
an effigy
is found in place.
Upon a statute’s
sculptured time
there’s an image
then to find.
A sight imprinted
then to see,
which is known as
effigy.

Spirit Of The Well

Childhood memories
of wonderful things
come back as oceans
and glorious scenes.
Some as a field trip
with paths then explored
to find many things
my mind would record.
Then through the woods
my footsteps would lay
to find an old building,
a times other day.
A well then residing
with a bucket and rope
with a spirit inside it
to grant me much hope.
The voice was imagined,
but it could foretell
I should go home then,
the spirit in the well.

Life’s A Billow

Dreams of things
in Christmastime
become the scenes
found so divine.
Time is displayed
oh so sweet
what that God made
found complete.
Life’s a billow
then to find
a needed pillow
time to time.
Christmas sounds
of love and joy
then surrounds
each girl and boy.
Fragrant scenes
of many sights
flow like streams
in days and nights.
Memories
of snowy views
are like seas
of joyful hues.
The times the rhymes
as life’s a billow
are Christmastimes
dreamt on a pillow.
Life is stirred
to seasons made
a way a word
of times inlaid.
Life’s a billow
stories seen
upon a pillow
a Christmas dream.

Haiku
for Sept 3,  2016

Tomorrows sunrise
is a painting by morning
that’s seen after night.

Distorted minutes
are counted haphazardly
building confusion.

A bee that’s in flight
finds the flavors of flowers
most tantalizing.

Showers of raindrops
bring forth life that was withered,
so they live again.

With but a window
you can explore the outdoors,
but you cannot touch.

Living proof of life
is often beyond our sight,
for it is so small.

Without God’s blessings
life would be an empty void
without any light.

A passing rain cloud
might decide to rain on you
or just pass you by.

The leaves on the trees
become a colorful essence
as autumn begins.

Travels of our lives
might have some destinations
that we do not like.

Without our choices
we would be only robots
without any minds.

Peace is a blessing
that is often found inside
when it’s not outside.

Flowers of summer
have an appointed lifetime
that winter snows cease.

Washing away smiles
is done by ones hatefulness
but love can revive.

Our now and agins
might become lifestyles we live,
so take care with life.

A glamorized sunset
might have trees and the ocean
to greaten its view.

Northern winds of time
become wintertime’s pages
that often have snow.

Too close for comfort
a whirlwind of life might be
as it passes by.

Ones wound too tightly
might find themselves with problems
when their lives unwind.

The sight of a bird
gives feelings of amazement
as it sings its song.

Some trials by fire
might not show only lessons,
but many burn marks.

Disposing of hate
needs you to acquire love
unconditional.
