Strategies

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s me again, with yet another session of rambling hehehe. The
weather up this way hasn’t been too bad. The rains have slacked
off a bit, but as always LOL, it’s supposed to start raining again
this evening. Sure wish we could send some of this down south to
my friends and family. Oh well, I’m sure it will balance out some
day, I hope hehe. Today’s high is supposed to be 88F degrees. It
might get hotter than that in this trailer, but I guess we’ll survive.
We have three neighbors and all three have air conditioners hehe,
but we only have fans, so it’s a good thing we live on this hill with
a good breeze hehehe. We’re still having to live off of my social
security disability check being Judy has not received any benefits
as of yet. I sure hope something happens soon, because we can’t
pay doctor bills on just my income. Oh well, I’m sure God will
provide as He always has. Worry is the first human response that
seems to kick in hehehe. So it’s onwards with the journal. Judy
and I watched TV yesterday as I wrote many of my poems. Yep,
I wrote while watching TV. Don’t ask me how I’m able to do that.
It did take me a lot longer to write the poems than it usually does
doing it that way LOL, but being Judy is here most of time now,
I’ve had to change a few of my strategies hehehe. I finished with
all of the poems late last night after Judy went to watch TV in bed.
I also wrote the haiku then too. We also played one of our hidden
object games from Big Fish games yesterday and finished it later
in the evening. LOL aren’t we exciting! I have yet to of gotten my
fishing license, being at the moment I cannot afford it. I sure do
miss being able to go fishing with my friend Brian, but that will
have to wait. Judy and I are planning on doing our walking after
we eat breakfast this morning. We’re trying to walk a little every
day. When we do go out walking, hehehe we usually bring our
cameras to take pictures of any little thing that catches our eye.
Not much has changed here at the Pearce’s home. We’re still
surviving what life throws our way. On another note, my sister
in law Barbara has been stricken with breast cancer. Please
keep her in your prayers. So far they think they can get it all
with radiation, but still she needs your prayers. I love you
sis. Keep the faith. God is in control. Doctors can only do so
much and then God has the final say. Each of us has an allotted
time that we are to be on the face of this Earth. Not one of us
truly knows the length. Only God knows. Well, it seems that
my eye is fading, so I may have to rest it a bit before I begin my
little journey through all that I’ve written here………………………
Ok my eye is rested a bit. Time to take that little visit to that
place of my recollection. To that little place that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I may have found a good title,
but I won’t know until I put words to it hehehe. Here goes…..

Strategies

My plans in life
of certain choice
might need changed
to different voice.
My strategies
of certain times
might be found
with bad designs.
None of us
of day to day
always yields
the best display.
Tempted sections
of our minds
are of many
bad designs.
Yours and mine
our destinies
might need better
strategies.
Learn to look
and find a way
for a better
brighter day.

There ya go my friend. Maybe not my best, but it’ll do. Ok so
I reckon I have gone and said about all that can be said other than
of course the amount of poems and haiku I wrote this week. Yep,
I wrote once again, 10 poems, but the last one is a sort of wintry
Christmassy style that I’ve gotta send my friend Ben in a bit, being
I didn’t edit it until a few moments ago LOL. Don’t like to send out
unedited stuff ya know hehe. Anyways, I also wrote 22 haiku agin
for all of my haiku lovers :). LOL you would not believe how many
people there are that think I made up the name Haiku hehehehehe.
Look it up hehehe!!! Ok so it’s time for me to be searching for that
old off switch once again, but not before I wish you all a wonderful
God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too. Now,
to find that off switch. Found it still cutting Z’s in the bedroom hehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Come And Go

Often in the skies above
some clouds are formed pure white.
Other times the clouds above
are dark just like the night.
Sometimes when I look above
I see some great designs
just like some jet airplanes
making all their lines.
Often when I look around
I see so many things
like a moose or bird that’s flying
in these certain scenes.
Many times our surroundings
are of many views
with the sky up high above
with many shades of blues.
Clouds might hide the sun above,
but it’s still up there
shining as it always has
with its love and care.
Often it’s our own discerning
that which makes us sad.
We will often find a day
reminding what we had.
Use the days that come and go
to find a certain smile
that you can enjoy each day
with each minutes mile.

Certain Sounds

Sounds of wind
are blowing through
with a gust of
thereunto.
It might seem
without a reason
as it blows on
every season.
Sounds of birds
are also heard
with the wind
of moments word.
Sounds surround us
here and there
in a moments
breath of air.
Certain sounds
may be showing
by their sounds
which way they’re going.
Flying north
some birds might fly
with their journeys
in the sky.
Findings summers
resting place
which to journey
with such grace.
Sounds of minutes
tick on through
with some clouds
in skies of blue.

Lord God’s Better Days

Now find pieces
yesterdays
as a moments
minutes maze.
Now finds journeys
in a sense
such as many
found foot prints.
Now might display
certain views
as a moments
worn out shoes.
Yet some pieces
of our lives
are with minutes
dancing jives.
Sometimes we don’t
fall in place
with the ones
of different face.
Often it’s our
own desires
that will build up
troubled fires.
Now can be
much better found
if we’ll seek for
solid ground.
Not just seeking
our own ways,
but for Lord Gods
better days.

Through My Screen

Through my screen
I see a sign
floating by
as summertime.
Through my window
I record
times perceived
I can’t afford.
All these things
of which I view
are God’s gifts
to me and you.
We could not
afford to buy
the pretty clouds
up in the sky.
So I stare
at now and then
seeing all
that did begin.
Through my screen
of minutes view
I perceive
the sky of blue.
Now some clouds
have just begun
to hide the sky
and blazing sun.
Through my window
I now see
a higher price,
but given free.

Then The Whens

Situations
near and far
bring us changes
how things are.
Timeless minutes
that we find
sometimes change
our moments mind.
Instigations
that ones do
sometimes lead
to me and you.
Often pages
turned too fast
leave us with
bad aftermath.
Situations
now and then
are just sometimes
confused when.
Then the whens
of then and there
leave us things
seemed not so fair.

Don’t Let Stories

When a story
isn’t true
it might also
live in you.
So make stories
that you say
always true
from day to day.
Don’t let falsehoods
be your drive
as you daily
are alive.
Let the truth to
live in you
in the things
you daily do.
Don’t let stories
be just lies
as your daily
alibis.
Let Lord Jesus
live and breathe
as you surely
do believe.

Distractions

If distractions
fill your time
find some place
with peace of mind.
If you’re problems
seem real large
then let Jesus
then take charge.
Let tomorrows
times ahead
not be just a
moments dread.
Let your worries
fall from view
as you find each
day anew.
If you’ve stumbled
and fell down
let the lessons
come around.
Find a viewpoint
better seen
with the way you
view each scene.

Dear Sweet Summertime

Dear sweet summertime
comes each day
with beginnings
month of May.
Now as months go
through July
summertime’s feelings
start to fly.
Dear sweet summertime’s
days survive
as so many
act alive.
Running and playing
every which way
as they’re enjoying
summertime’s day.
Dear sweet summertime’s
times will pass
with its moments
shadows cast.

Compassion

Compassionate feelings
are what many hide
as they just stow them
way down deep inside.
There’s many people
that cannot show true
how that they’re feeling
about me and you.
Their true compassion
is felt as disgrace,
while they are hiding
the sights from their face.
Let not peer pressure
to make you do wrong
and not show truly
your heart beating strong.
Start out a new day
with passionate views
filled with compassion
to not just confuse.
Sometimes some others
just like you and me
might be just needing
compassion for free.

Wishing For Winter

Wishing for winter
is found on my mind
now as I’m dreaming
of great Christmastime.
Wishing and waiting
for that day to be
seems to be daily
what I wish to see.
White snow to glisten
with flakes falling down
as I awaken
with snow on the ground.
Wishing for winter
in summertime’s way
leaves me just dreaming
of snow Christmas Day.
Right now the weather
is nice as can be,
but I’m still wishing
for white snow to see.
Yet I know truly
I’ll get really tired
of all the white snow
that’s daily transpired.
But I’ll see Christmas
the same in my heart
even when loved ones
are so far apart.
Miles do not matter
with Christmastimes love
for God connects us
through Him up above.

Haiku
for July 16, 2011

Today’s tomorrow
is found through our yesterdays
we may have misread.

Sometimes our patterns
are created through many mistakes
that we did not learn.

A moments journey
finds footprints in the morning
as it all begins.

Sifting through some weeds
you may find a few flowers
that might change your mind.

To believe in ghost
you must then believe in God
and also spirits.

Looking for white clouds
might display a few dark ones
throughout the moment.

Some jokes aren’t funny
for they only hurt people
and do not give smiles.

A point in our lives
brings a flowers conclusion
that time makes ones shine.

Gaining a blessing
could be from yet another
that you have witnessed.

Summertime’s flowers
bloom brilliantly with colors
as the sunlight shines.

Bringing a problem
into all your tomorrows
will hinder today.

Knowing your limits
is the first step in growing
then learning to live.

Life needs some laughter
to fill up voids of sadness
and heal up the heart.

Today’s growing pains
might be tomorrows lessons
found as some pulled teeth.

Vengeance brings sorrow
as anger drives emotions.
Don’t act abruptly.

Leaning on shovels
does not get a posthole dug.
It only delays.

Spreading yourself thin
could cause you much misfortune.
Do what you’re able.

Shadows only thrive
when there’s something to exist.
Otherwise they’re not.

Counting the minutes
only guarantees seconds
of which you will count.

Now is yesterday
that’s sat in place of today
seeking tomorrow.

A small daffodil
grows along side of many
which makes them to shine.

While hearing echoes
I feel the rivers flowing
as sounds that repeat.
