ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How are you today? I’m doing pretty well. Found a way to
get my emails published for a while until I can afford to send
my old PC to Texas to get it fixed. I do all of my writing on
this PC and then send it to Judy’s PC which has Windows XP
and Outlook Express. I have Started a profile for me on her
email and copied my email addresses over to it. Of course
a few are out of date, being the only backed up WAB file
was for 2010 LOL, but it will do for a while. I was able to
remember a few of the email changes and get them updated.
So it’s onwards with my rambling. The weather up this way
is showing signs of warming up a little. Right now it’s 41 F
degrees at 3:30 PM. We’re expecting a little more snow
tonight though with a low of 28 F degrees. It should melt
away tomorrow being we’re supposed to be 50 F degrees
for the high. I am ready for some warm weather, but not
too warm LOL, because haven’t got air conditioner. All
we have is a bunch of fans. So please God, no 90 degree
weather . Judy and I cannot wait for summer to do some
cooking out on our little grill and be able to play with the
boys outside. I have been going out to play with them
from time to time, but the ice is hard on me and I can’t
handle many more falls. My old body’s already falling
apart LOL. Judy’s in the kitchen now doing a little bit
of cleaning. Benny and Milo must be in there watching
her, because they’re not in here with me. There’s not
too awful much going at the Pearce’s Place. Nope it’s
been rather quiet around here lately of course aside from
Benny barking at every little sound that he hears LOL.
It doesn’t bark loudly. he kind of barks under his breath.
LOL if somebody knocks on a door on a TV program
he thinks it’s our front door and starts heading for the
door while barking all the way hehehe. I liked it a lot
better when he didn’t bark at all I think LOL. Oh well,
I just open the door and show him that there is nobody
out there and he’s content and hushes. Hehehe ya talk
about silly, we have a big pan of dried dog food sitting
in the floor in here and when they want a treat, all we’ve
gotta do is scoop some out of the pan and put it on their
food dishes and they’ll eat it. They won’t eat the food
out of the pan unless they are starving and that’s not
ever gonna be an issue LOL. We feed them one can
of Mighty Dog a piece every day They love Mighty
Dog hehehe Woof Woof . Yeppers these two boys
are nutty, but we love them. Judy and the boys just
came back in here. Now the boys are in their doggie
beds in the floor beside us. This is most surely one
exciting household huh . We have yet to of started
another game of hidden objects, but we might just do
it this week sometime. Judy took the boys over to her
sisters house the other day and they got to play with
their cousins Fenway and Willow and their pups. The
pups are 7 weeks old. Judy took a lot of pictures of
them and Benny and Milo playing with them. Milo
simply loved the pups as well as Benny. I would have
gone with her, but I was feeling peaked and stayed
home. Plus I don’t think I would of enjoyed listening
to Judy and Trudy for 7 or 8 hours hehehehehehehe.
They talk about things that I’m not interested in .
Anyways, I spent my time just goofing around on the
computer here at home. So what else is going on here
at the Pearce’s Place? Not much to be honest! We’ve
been watching all of our favorite TV programs and
still doing Farm Town on Facebook. We’re enjoying
our time together along with the boys. God has most
surely blessed us and our home. Yes, we do have our
fair share of problems, but we become stronger after
each event. Let your troubles to be an exercise bike
for you. Don’t let them take you down. If you will
take a little look into your past, I’m sure you will
see a few things you went through that you thought
you could never survive, but you did and you became
much stronger for it. God knows what we can handle
and what He must send an angel to help us through.
Trust in Him that all will be well, for even when our
time on Earth is up, another existence of life begins
that is forever. Death on Earth is not the end, but
the beginning. Live your life with truth and love in
your heart and things will fall in place. Don’t try
to live a lie. It will come back to haunt you. Now,
it’s time for me to cease my rambling for a while
and begin my journey back through all that I have
written here to see if I can find me a good word or
phrase that might work for a good title for today’s
brand new poem . So it’s away I go to that place
of my recollection that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I found a good title just a little ways
back in my rambling. Now, let’s see if I can write
a decent poem using it LOL. Here goes.

Another Existence

With every perception
comes many that see
things found evolving
around you and me.
Another existence
on times other plane
that is found often
with greater to gain.
Yet many out there
will choose not so well
and their existence
is found deep in Hell.
Don’t let your mindset
to be just of greed.
Let God to help you
with all that you need.
Another existence
is waiting for you
so tell me my friend
are you living true?
Are you awaiting
with heartbeats desire
filled with the passion
of God’s Holy Fire?
Another existence
is after we pass
waiting for us to
seek what’s to last.

Ok, so there ya go. I sure hope you understood the poem
and my rambling didn’t bore ya to sleep LOL. I’ve always
had this ability to write. God gave it to me and I used in the
past for just the wrong reasons. Although even in my past
I found myself writing things that God had put on my heart.
Poetry has been a part of life since I was a little boy. Even
before I could write well, I would find little poems coming
out of my mouth. Most never knew, because I never made
that part of my life open for others. Yet, my oldest friend
and blood brother Mark Green knew of it, being he heard
me often rattling off poems when I was in the single digits
of age LOL. I was always afraid others would think that
I was weird to be doing poetry. Now days, I could care
less what people think about it LOL, being if you have
a favorite song or 2 that you love, it just so happens that
the lyrics are POETRY . All of my poems, I can sing
to you in a heartbeat. Judy’s seen me do it many times.
It’s one of God’s gifts that He gave to me. We all have
gifts, but we often are not aware of them until the time
is right. When my life came to a screeching halt back
in 1990 from the world that I had been living, I found
that my poetry was enhanced with thoughts that were
able to help others and in that time frame Animal’s
Greetings was born. Life had run its course as all that
I had been through became lessons in life. God was
allowing me to go through what I needed to go through
so that I could grow more fluently. Oh yea, I need to
tell you what I tell ya every week and that is, I wrote
some more poems and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more
poems with one being sort of Christmassy. Also I
wrote once again 22 more haiku for all of the haiku
lovers out there. I hope enjoy them. So there ya go.
My life in a nutshell LOL. Now, I believe I need to
begin searching for that confounded off switch that
just loves to irritate me with hide and seek hehehehe,
but not before I wish you a most wonderful and God
filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now, it’s time to find that silly off switch.
Ah Hah, there ya are you little bugger hehehehe.
Hiding over at Judy’s PC won’t save ya being I’ve
gotta use her PC now to do send the emails LOL.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe

When Days Have Passed

As time goes by
with every sign
seasons change
from time to time
When days have passed
they leave their mark
found within
the light and dark.
Things we smell
and touch and feel,
seasons show their
true appeal.
Some with snowflakes,
some with rain
while some seem as
so insane.
Different seasons
come in place
as the flavors
many taste.
When days have passed
they show their style
that which makes
a moments mile.

A Different Age

Today’s a day
as time is gone
ticking as
a moments bomb.
Just awaiting
to release
a different age
of piece by piece.
Things we see
as now and then
a different age
remembers when.
So with minutes
hours find
a different age
from time to time.
This is the day
to change your view
of what all that
you thought you knew.
A different age
as things are learned
often change
what we’ve discerned.

Without God

Our tomorrows
from today
need us each
to daily pray.
For without God
our tomorrows
will be only
saddened sorrows.
Scenes so empty
that consume
every moments
opportune.
Without God
we’d surely be
without hope
for you and me.
For with God
we can be strong
if we’ll trust Him
dawn to dawn.

Winter in Spring

Up northeast
in Houlton Maine
there’s a town near
to attain.
A little town
with much to bring
often seen as
winter in spring.
This little town
is hidden from view
out in the boonies
found thereunto.
Winter in spring
is often the case
found within April
and snow on my face.
Maybe in time
the weather will show
portions of summer
without any snow.
Yet surely springtime
will not be found,
because in New Limerick
there’s snow on the ground.

As I Assess

Looking now forwards
I can remember
things in the past days
found in December
As I assess them
those thoughts way back when
I now look forward
and see them again.
Timeless those journeys
from Christmas of past
seem as remembered
with blessings that last.
I find those moments
of so long ago
still living in me
wherever I go.
All of those Christmases
I find the best
are now within me
as I assess.

The Smallest One

While looking outwards
and not looking in
you might just miss ones
time and agin.
So often small things
fall from our view
not realizing
what all they can do.
Times we’ve ignored things
just for their size
we’ve often found a
bitter surprise.
Even the smallest one
that we ignore
could be the greatest
we need to explore.
Often a person found
so small in life
will be the best of
a husband or wife.
So don’t go judging
what you do not know,
for it might haunt you
wherever you go.

Looking Ahead

Windows of winter
still are displaying
while I find springtime
what I am praying.
Yet it seems springtime
is not to come
here in New England
with each dawning sun.
Looking ahead now
I can see summer
that without springtime
is such a bummer.
So as I search now
seeking for Spring
I still see snowflakes
that seem to cling.
Holding for dear life
till they melt away.
I’m looking ahead
for a much warmer day.

Finding At Last

Within my passed days
I only saw
things I had done then
I did recall.
I only saw all
the minutes in play
while not perceiving
what happened each day.
Yet finding at last now
who I’d become
I see the stages
of each setting sun.
Then I saw turmoil,
but now I see true
all of the lessons
that came in my view.
Finding at last then
I looked to see
how all those hard times
created made me.
Now I look truly
at my shadows past
at all the lessons
while finding at last.

A Weary Day

The clouds I see now
are floating on by
with me with questions
of who, where and why.
Seeing some dark ones
maybe with rain
or maybe snowflakes
for now to attain.
A weary day finds time
within each view
found as the moments that
we misconstrue.
Things we have pondered
watching the sky.
Why are they floating
there oh so high?
A weary day’s minute
is what many find
when they’re not looking
with blessings in mind.

Just Waiting

Windows closed now
while I look
seeing things that
I mistook.
Just waiting for
what I can’t see
now to come and
be with me.
Seconds tick on
passing by
while just waiting
as I sigh.
This is my day
looking now
seeing how time
does endow.
Minutes hours
turn to days
while just waiting
in amaze.
Then I wake up
and find true
all the good things
in my view.

Haiku
for Apr 13, 2013

The little problems
can become as great mountains
if we ignore them.

Our ventures in time
can become lessons in life
as minutes tick on.

A child that sees you
often knows more than you think,
so don’t lie to them.

With today’s dawning
comes the ventures to be seen
that could live decades.

Without yesterday
today would not have a chance,
for nothing was learned.

While we might be wrong,
we also might just be right
in different light.

Inside a window
holds the views that many see
without going out.

Tomorrows journey
begins one step at a time
beginning today.

Lingering patterns
might slip back into your life
if you allow them.

Hearing a hoot owl
breaks the silence of nightfall
as it echoes through.

Meaningless chatter
only fills up ones journey
with many headaches.

While many will sleep
there are others that do not,
because of much pain.

Now is just a time
that comes and goes with thinking
and soon fades way.

Blessings will find you
when they are least expected,
so do not give up.

Links to our sadness
are often found in our minds
not seeing the good.

Nobody’s perfect
so why act as if you are.
Only Jesus is.

Today brings us hope
for tomorrows mysteries
that might be better.

When a storm passes
it leaves its remains intact
in our memories.

Morning will blossom
displaying its own beauty
that time can record.

Holding too tightly
can prevent any changes
that God has for you.

Believing in God
needs you to step out on faith
and trust every step.

While sitting around
the world continues onwards,
so get up and move.
