ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have ya been? We’re still hanging in there. Judy
filed for SSD. Hopefully they will accept her soon. She
has been still doing some job searching, but not much up
here that she is able to do. None the less, we will make
it one way or another with God’s help. It’s looking like
our car may not last much longer. The weather up here
is killing it slowly, but it still runs so far. The weather
the last few days has been rerun after rerun LOL. Rain
most every day if not every other day hehehehe. Today
there’s a 71% chance of thunderstorms. It’s 70F degrees
right now with the high supposed to be 74F degrees. Not
too bad huh! It’ll make up for it temperature wise this
winter LOL. Well, there ain’t much else around these
parts that has changed since last week hehehe. Judy and
I are still doing our same old same old with FarmTown,
other games and our picture taking as well as watching
our favorite TV programs. It’s such an exciting world
way out here in the boonies of Maine LOL. Judy’s still
asleep. I’ll wake her when I finish this and get breakfast
ready to eat. I’m fixing pancakes and sausage, but first
I must finish this mess hehehe. So it’s onwards with my
little rambling self. My old neighbor friend Brian came
over last Tuesday June 28th and brought a few of his
RC airplanes and I video taped him flying them. I also
took a few pictures of him and his family along with his
planes. He asked if I had my fishing license yet and I
told him I would get them as soon as I can afford them.
Maybe in a week or so if things work out. God only
knows. I am looking forward to going fishing again.
The clouds are sure gray today. I might have to shut
the windows soon if it starts raining. I hate it when
I have to shut the windows being we have no AC in
the house other than fans. Judy and I are planning on
taking our walk today if it doesn’t rain all day hehehe.
We often walk down to the river and take pictures.
I thank God for all of the beauty that He gives us to
capture on camera. Those moments are very special
to me. I’ve always love photography. I think I began
learning to appreciate it most when I was working
for the Wills Point Chronicle in Texas. Yeppers, my
friend Julius Rogers taught me all he knew about
the art of newspapers. His brother Oscar was also
a good teacher. I found out a few days ago that my
friend Julius past away April 1st. That brought me
to tears, being him and Oscar were like brothers to
me. Even though he was old enough to be my dad
we were best friends. I called Oscar the other day
and we talked for a while. It was nice hearing his
voice. Keep Oscar and all of Julius’s family in your
prayers. They are truly saddened for the loss of him.
Yet Julius is now in Heaven with my dad and all the
others that have gone before. I’m sure they are all
watching over us as time goes by. Death is not the
end, but the beginning of another life. So have you
been preparing for the journey, such as getting
right with God? Have you gotten to know Jesus
Christ? You might find yourself sooner than you
think standing in front of God with His pages opened
looking for your name. Is it going to be there? Why
not get to know Him today? Ok so I guess I need
to hush my preaching 🙂 and begin 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. So it’s away I go
to that place of my recollection that I so often call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I found a good title.
Now let’s see if I can write a good poem using it 🙂
Here goes nothing…..or maybe something hehehe!

Another Life

Another time,
another day
time might seem
to drift away.
Another life
in Heavens gates
finds us all
at different dates.
Yet so many
can’t walk in
due to lives of
now and then.
Not allowing
thereunto
to enlighten
how they view.
Another life
will surely come
another day
with Heavens drum.
Yet the voyage
of Heavens view
needs your sight
on God So True.
So now tell me
will you find
another life
with peace of mind?
Will you seek
for God’s Own Son
to forgive
the things you’ve done?

Ok so it might not been one of my better poems, but
hopefully it made sense to a few of you. Tomorrow is
the 4th of July. I reckon many of you will be shooting
off fireworks. Yet in Texas I hear there is a ban on them
due to the drought and all the fires. I sure wish we could
send some of this rain down there to them hehehe. We
have an overkill on the rain. It seems that we have had
flood warnings most every week LOL. Not a problem
where we are, but for those in low lying areas. Well, if
you do shoot off fireworks, be very careful and watch
out where you aim them as well as always have an adult
around that knows how to use them. A simple tiny little
firecracker can hurt you bad. I know cause back when
I was a kid, I had one go off in my hand and it hurt bad.
I was lucky it didn’t hurt me any worse than it did. Just
be careful my friends. Now I guess it’s time for me to be
searching for that freaking off switch, but not before I
tell you what I tell you every week and that is, I wrote
some more poems and haiku. Yepper 10 more poems,
but I wrote the first one Monday June 27th. I wrote
all the others yesterday/Saturday. Yes my dear haiku
friends hehehe, I wrote 22 more haiku as well yesterday.
I hope you enjoy a few of the poems and haiku which
are actually just Japanese poems/verses hehehe. Well
it’s time for me to wish you all a safe week and most
wonderful 4th of July. Remember, Jesus loves you
and we do too. Now to find that off switch. Hehehe,
I’m hunting off switchs hehehehehehe. Found it LOL!
That skwewy off switch was hiding in the window 🙂
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Today’s Sky Blue

The windows of
the days ahead
seem to fill me
full of dread.
Northern rains
come crashing through
everywhere
and thereunto.
Yet right now
the sunlight shines
here today
on northern times.
But tomorrow
shows for sure
that we might get
rains downpour.
So I’ll batten
down the hatches
with the windows
many latches.
Yet for now
I’ll crack a few
so to see
today’s sky blue.

A Distant Day

Saturdays
with sunny smiles
seem to go
for miles and miles.
Saturdays
of now and then
bring me joy
with summers wind.
Yet the times
of saturdays
sometimes seem
as just a maze.
All the scenes
that I now see
are not viewed
as history.
I remember
Texas fun
on the beach
with summers sun.
In the waves
with oceans view
I could see
a sky of blue.
Saturdays
of faraway
are now just
a distant day.

Jumbles

In a jumble
times might seem
as a moments
minutes dream.
Yet sometimes
is found unfair
as it turns to
a nightmare.
Little fragments
found and viewed
might not be
what you pursued.
In a jumble
times might turn
to a timeframe
wished to burn.
Often people
day to day
will be seen
with unsought way,
due to jumbles
that they sought
in a timeframe
they should not.
So if jumbles
have found you
with a time
you wish not true,
take a step back
and have prayer
with Lord Jesus
and His Care.
He will show you
how to change,
in the jumbles
now so strange.
Let Him show you
what to do
so to make a
better you.

Your Anger

Looking on passed
the minutes ahead
I can remember
the things ones said.
Words as value
bought and sold
from the ones
that surely told.
Pointless wordings
said and done
bring the views
one setting sun.
Searching passed then
on into today
I can remember
what many say.
Said in darkness
hurtful words
I remember
flocks of birds.
Seeming flying
all around
I heard angers
bitter sound.
Now those moments
I remember
are just as
a burning ember.
I must choose to
put them out
all the flames
of bitter bout.
Let today now
shine anew
as a blessing
God gave you.
Let your anger
be set free
as you search
God’s peaceful sea.
Let the then times
fall away
for this is
a different day.

A Voice Away

Hearts in time
of day to day
are now just
a voice away.
A mere moments
love affection
is now just
a phones connection.
All my friends
of long ago
are now just
my daily woe.
I miss you all
my friends of time
now as minutes
seem to climb.
Hours fractions
I recall
now bring echoes
standing tall.
All my friends
of yesterday
are now just
a voice away.

Summers Passage

Breezes blowing
summers day
brings to view
a wondrous way.
Signs of living
in the trees
as they’re swaying
in the breeze.
Summers scenes
colored hues
bring to life
so many views.
With the breezes
come a sign
found as only
summertime.
Summers passage
now is found
as a sight of
sky and ground.
Summers clouds
just float on by
leaving echoes
how and why.
Then the ground
of time we see
turns into
what’s meant to be.
Mere connections
then and there
are forth bringing
breaths of air.

Desires of The Heart

Many emotions
find us unglued
with many things
that we misconstrued.
Desires of the heart
can sometimes fall
leaving an echo
that ends over all.
Don’t let your desires
to take you away
on a mere journey
of some dismal day.
Sometimes our desires
are not so great,
due to them leading
a troubled found fate.
Desires of the heart
can be really good
if they are truly
then understood.
So learn your desires
to see how they stand
and then ask Jesus
to give you a hand.
He will most surely
guide you on through
with all the lessons
that you’re needing true.
Yet in the ending
you will find God’s Art
within the journals
desires of the heart.

The Sound of Peace

Within a place
the sound of peace
rings so silent
times release.
The sound of peace
within a frame
might be with
another name.
Ones erratic
with each day
seek for peace
a different way.
The sound of peace
might be heard
as a noisy
moments word.
Yet to many
peace is found
when nobody
is around.
So just try
to understand
someone’s peace
from where they stand.
Let your peaceful
find a place
found within
Lord Jesus Grace.

Aromas

Sitting in a field
with flowers that bloom
I find aromas
that I can consume.
Aromas so blissful
and scenery too
I found beneath
a deep sky of blue.
Aromas of flowers
that also are weeds
seem to enlighten
what time supersedes.
All of the blessings
given from God
I sat a moment
and gave an applaud.
He gave this moment
of minutes of ease
found in a blessing
of nows summer breeze.

The Poetry Room

In this room
of poetic words
there might live
a flock of birds.
The poetry room
of timeless views
finds the minutes
moments news.
Things I thought
and words I found
here and there
and all around.
In this room
my words attain
things to say
sometimes insane.
Yet sometimes
the poetry room
brings to me
things to consume.
Words from God
through His Own Son
bring to me
what’s said and done.
Then the words
I jot them down
so to help Him
to be found.
The poetry room
of now today
sometimes has
so much to say,
but of course then
there are times
that I’m only
writing rhymes.

Haiku
for July 2, 2011

A simple moment
really might not be simple,
but an illusion.

Lessons are disguised
in many mistakes we make,
yet some do not learn.

Tomorrows judgment
might be disillusioned sight
seen from now today.

Climbing a mountain
needs knowledge of the footholds
to climb successful.

Time might evade us
when looking wrong directions.
Don’t miss the moments.

A page that is turned
could be one that is misread
if not seen clearly.

Two hearts found colliding
could end as catastrophic
if truth is hidden.

Sunlight of summer
shines brightly in the morning
as daytime arrives.

With astro music
comes heartbeats of emotion
found in the night sky.

Picturing right now
needs a little bit hopeful
to make it better.

Running in one place
will get you know where at all,
but just exhausted.

Glancing at the sky
could find you missing the view,
so take longer looks.

Shimmering sunsets
are reflections of evening
painted with a smile.

Hearing some thunder
gives knowledge of the lightning
that may be at hand.

Trade winds of living
disperse their ways of uniting
our footprints in time.

While looking outside
I see my own reflection
in the windowpane.

The oceans own view
brings to life waves crashing in
from its depths of time.

Today’s tomorrow
might be yesterdays vision
all over again.

Forecasting summer
leaves confusion in many,
for weather changes.

Our grasp on today
could be a shortsighted one
if it’s seen hazy.

Marching to footsteps
needs be done at your own speed
or you’ll surely fall.

Wisdom of an owl
is misconceived for its eyes,
for they don’t show truth.
