ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

This passed week has been slower than
usual.  We had a week with neither us
with doctor visits LOL and the days we
went to town it was raining and or just a
bit too cloudy to get good pictures from
a moving vehicle LOL.  I do have some
good news.  Judy and will be celebrating
our 17th year wedding anniversary Oct
2,  Tuesday after next,  although we may
have to postpone celebrating until we
get our Social Security :).  We’re kind of
strapped for cash now LOL,  but all is
well.  It doesn’t seem like 17 years has
passed.  We have experienced so many
things together that we may of never
experienced alone.  She saw the ocean
and dolphins and I saw a ton of snow 🙂
Yes we’ve seen a whole lot more than
that together,  but no sense in rattling
about that LOL.  Wintertime is already
knocking loudly on our door.  It was
around 30 F degrees this morning and
it’s supposed to be a low of 29 Monday
morning,  Anyways,  we’re enjoying a
little reprieve from the warm weather.
I can’t sleep when it’s near or above
80 F degrees.  Plus when the humidity
gets up,  it makes it hard to sleep and
that rarely happens in cold weather 🙂
So,  what else is going on around this
place?  Hmm,  well to be honest,  not
much.  We rearranged our living room
and I think it looks a lot better now.
Judy used her sister’s carpet cleaner
and worked on the living room and our
bedroom.  The carpets were overdue
a cleaning that a vacuum cleaner just
doesn’t do.  Anyways,  for those of
you getting the stationery version of
my journal,  I put 3 pictures of our
living room LOL.  There are very few
pictures in this weeks stationery due
to the weather and all,  but I’m sure
that will change.  Especially when the
fall colors start appearing 🙂 and that
shouldn’t be far off.  Right now at
5:30 PM it’s 52 F degrees.  Not too
bad 🙂  LOL I keep looking outside
searching for snowflakes.  I do love
snow ya know hehehe.   I don’t know
why so many hate the snow.  It’s so
pretty as it makes artwork out of so
many things that otherwise would
look rather boring.  Yep,  I love the
snow.  LOL believe it or not I love
to go out and play in it.  Many times
I’ll take the boys outside and throw
snowballs for them to chase and TRY
to catch.  The only part about snow
that I don’t like is when it melts and
becomes slush and then refreezes to
become a nightmare of ice.  That’s
when I am ready for it to end hehehe.
Though so often it will snow again
and make it beautiful again and that
puts a big smile on my face.  I think
one of the reasons I don’t mind the
snow too much is because we’ve got
a good battery powered snow blower
and snow shovel that do most of the
work.  Also our landlord does it or
has someone to plow our driveway for
us.  Living up here isn’t everybody’s
cup of java or tea LOL.  Most surely
we’ve been blessed.  Thankfully Judy
and I have each other and these 2 lil
boys of ours to keep our hearts alive.
God is always watching over us as
well as his many angels that He’s sent
to protect us.  Yes we have our fair
share of problems,  but together with
God we survive.  I reckon it’s time for
me to begin my quest back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I
can find a good word or phrase that
will work 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 have found me a
decent title less than a third of a way
back through my rambling.  Now,
to see if I can do anything with it 🙂
Here goes…

Beautiful Again

When times of torment
have done their best
to wear on your nerves
to make you feel less.
Look for the moments
that time passes by
and sort through scenes
find reasons and why.
Then as you’re looking
find the best days
that you can remember
the best then to gaze.
Find your reflection
in scenes that you see
and then look closer
let them once again be.
Become beautiful again
as you saw of a time
and make that your view
that’s seen in your mind.
Don’t allow others to
tell you what’s true
if they only know
what all that they view.
For we’re all different
and not all a ten,
but yet to another
we’re beautiful again.

There ya go.  I felt the need to write
of that nature.  I have a friend that
ones have been insulting her because
she is over weight,  but she has lost
450 pounds and at least she is trying.
To me she is a beautiful soul.  She
has a pretty smile.  She has a lot of
weight yet to lose,  but she is doing
it.  Some people can be so cruel.  We
each have our different looks about
us and to one person they might not
be attracted,  but to another find love.
What I am trying to say is,  don’t be
so quick to judge,  for what’s on the
outside might not concur with what
that’s within.  So now I guess it’s time
for me to tell you what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems and 3 of them are Christmas
poems.  I also wrote once again 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.  Now I
think it’s time for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you a
wonderful weekend or whatever is
left of it and a truly blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Ok,  so where are
ya hiding at this week ya ornery lil
thing?  Hmm,  do my eyes deceive
me or am I seeing my orange juice
glass tipping just a tad?  Yep.  there
ya are.  LOL you were thirsty and
were trying to get a drink!  You’re
an on off switch for crying out loud.
You don’t drink hehehehehehehe.
Ok maybe a sip,  but that’s all 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK hehehehe.

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

Painted Bird

One day in time
my eyes did see
a painted bird
so wishfully.
It sought to fly
in canvass white
fluttered feathers
day and night.
Yet it’s found
a painted view
on a canvass
without blue.
No sky above
a painted scene,
it only sees but
leaves of green,
with some brown
as trees of paint
this bird seems
a little faint.
It only wants
to fly away
this painted bird
to a brighter day.
But for now
its life’s inferred
showing only
a painted bird.

Eyesight’s Escape

Through our eyes
we might perceive
a place in time
ones don’t believe.
It might display
a wonderful view
essence of life
that’s just for you.
You may be alone
in your vision quest
eyesight’s escape
from east to west.
God given sights
might come alive
and display scenes
just for your eyes.
Your description
might help ones see
eyesight’s escape
that God gave free.
It might become
the greatest sight
to see by day
and also by night.
Allow your eyes
to become a voice
as ones look close
to see you rejoice.
Then your view
of a size or shape
can live with them
an eyesight’s escape.

Just Like Smoke

A summer’s sky
of clouds designs
forms a phrase
for many minds.
Seen as dancers
clouds unite
just like smoke
that times invite.
A true blue sky
displays its soul
with the clouds
that then unfold.
Dancing prancing
here and there
just like smoke
in a puff of air.
God given scenes
that float on by
follow a breeze
in a true blue sky.
They may become
a darkened tint
filled with rain
in times extent.
Changing always
their daily goal
in their journeys
how they blow.
So look and see
the whitish cloak
God’s own beauty
just like smoke.

Snow Filled Scenes

Seasonal passages
become as a glow
scented of Christmas
white as the snow.
Time’s but a page
of a story book
tempting the eyes
for another look.
Snow filled scenes
displayed so true
found in a portion
a Christmas view.
Many stay inside
while keeping warm
not seeing Christmas
its wonderful charm.
The epic adventures
that become alive
snow filled scenes
sweets for the eyes.
Snowflakes gather
to become a sight
while falling down
daylight and night.
Then as if magic
the season appears
found in snowflakes
my heart endears.
I think of Christmas
and snow filled scenes
as they come alive
deep in my dreams.

Driving To Town

Those wintry days
and snow of white
display a phase
of times delight.
On a little drive
to town one day
sights came alive
in a magical way.
A snow filled road
became a scene
a time bestowed
just like a dream.
It looked so great
a Christmas sight
this time and date
amidst daylight.
The minutes found
a heartbeat’s way
all there around
a Christmas day.
Yet it’s the past
as future bestows
what all that lasts
in winter’s snow.
Scenes of wonder
scenes of bliss
displayed asunder
a moment’s kiss.
This is a moment
that minutes found
as a memory
driving to town.

Behind A Mask

So many act
and are not true
what they say
and what they do.
So many hide
behind a mask
to then portray
another task.
Hiding behind
a made up world
created by
what lies unfurled.
Different textures
different days
becomes ones
another phase.
A life’s portrayal
might succumb
to the act
of a liars drum,
but the truth
will be revealed
behind a mask
what time concealed.
So don’t allow
your daily task
to hide away
behind a mask.

Time Creates

Through the doors
of memories
comes the sight of
times at ease.
Watching the days
passing by
found beneath a
northern sky.
The days and weeks
become the past
as time creates
our shadows cast.
With just a phase
of then and there
it passes by
as a breath of air.
A breathed emotion
time set free
to become a part
of history.
A moment’s recalled
upon some logs
my wife and I
with our two dogs.
We watched the days
as oceans seas
with grass of green
and nearby trees.
What we remember
of different dates
shows that of God
how time creates.

Season Of Wonder

Life’s a magical
change that becomes
seasonal doorways
times beating drums.
With winter’s snow
comes seasonal style
textures of snowflakes
that form as a smile.
Christmas so joyful
becomes as a way
scented with flavors
of day after day.
There may be a sight
of dogs in the snow
watching and waiting
with hearts all aglow.
With winds of winter
Christmastime too
the season of wonder
is clearly in view.
I head out blissfully
to join in the fun
tossing some snowballs
to watch our dogs run.
It’s a Christmassy day
of a wonderful while
time frames displaying
as snowflakes compile.
Yes it’s but a day
of a timeless degree
a season of wonder
so happy and free.

Charismatic Scenes

Hills in the distance,
rivers that will flow
display the quality
a charismatic show.
Scenes telling stories
of seasonal delight
can become memoirs
a past shining light.
We so often pass up
the best there’s to see
as we go life ways
ignoring what’s free.
So many pay money
to act as they’re gold
overlooking blessings
from ages of old.
Charismatic scenes
of a timeless display
are often passed up
by greeds wanting way.
Look beyond money
and look beyond fame,
and see all the beauty
that needs to remain.
Don’t allow greediness
to become all you are.
Look for the beauty
a bright shining star.
It might be landscapes
as windows of time,
charismatic scenes
from Lord God divine.

Clouded Minds

Through our thoughts
a cloud may form
filled with problems
distraught and torn.
Scenes might become
a storm on the way
a time within time
with clouds of gray.
Lose that perception
and look for a view
one that is better
in a sky of blue.
Then use your mind
to create a smile
one that of beauty
one that of style.
Seek a time’s vision
remembered so true
a time of passion
that still lives in you.
Allow your mindset
to become a dream
a time you remember
as a clear blue stream.
Maybe of a moment
your childhood days
scented with emotion
in so many ways.
Don’t allow bitterness
to be your designs.
Look for the beauty
within clouded minds.

Haiku
for Sept 22,  2018

Life in a hurry
will create many regrets
that passed as shadows.

In search of today
you might find some yesterdays
hopes for tomorrow.

Without times of past
no lessons are taught to you
so find thanks in then.

Viewing your problems
needs eyes for understanding
and learning to change.

Gateways to heartbeats
are as seasons to a dream
chancing to be real.

Within blades of grass
are the emotions of life
waiting to be mowed.

Yesterday’s flowers
might have blooms for tomorrow
that you do not see.

Living trees of life
are as many perspectives
found in many eyes.

Often our doorways
will become cluttered with thoughts
of which way to choose.

Bringing forth sunshine
from a clouded mind of sight
needs a little rain.

To cleanse a pathway
you need prayer to begin
and then start walking.

Belief in Heaven
gives hope for a tomorrow
that is without pain.

Counting your blessings
can keep you focused on peace,
counting pain does not.

Leaves on the trees
are as clocks ticking away
to grow or to fall.

The harvest of crops
can provide food for many
and work for others.

Lost in a dreamworld
reality might evade
until you wake up.

Glancing at the moon
you might see clouds drifting by
creating journeys.

Cheating on others
can awaken karma’s eyes
to do unto you.

Beneath emotions
holds a pool of reasoning
of why that you are.

At the close of day
begins a journey through night
that wakes up the stars.

Beyond piles of leaves
is a statement from autumn
bidding us goodbye.

Winter brings a stage
that is formed from desire
of its location.
