Took A Nap

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s looking like summer has just about passed us by up here.
The high today is supposed to be 72 F degrees and tomorrow
is supposed to be in the low 60’s. The rest of the week in the
70’s up and down. Looks like we will have an early winter if
this keeps up hehehe. Right now at noon it’s 72 F degrees and
our neighbors are mowing once again. 60% chance of rain for
today through tonight till Monday morning. Can’t complain
being there are many out there that would be happy as heck
to get some of this rain LOL along with our temperatures :).
The Pearce’s Place hasn’t had much of a change other than
Judy spending a lot of time over at her sisters house trying to
help out with her mom. I’ve been staying home babysitting
the boys. So what else is happening that’s worth discussing?
LOL, not much! Nope, it’s been a rather quiet week here
at the Pearce’s Place. Judy and I have been doing our daily
exercises and watching our food intake while trying to get
our bodies in a little bit of a better shape and get to feeling
better. It’ll take time. So Benny just strolled in and licked
my legs to say hello hehehe. Milo was lying in here with us,
but they have now both followed Judy into the kitchen in hopes
of her fixing them something to eat LOL. Nope, too early for
them, but it’s time for our breakfast. Yes I said breakfast.
We don’t go to bed until early in the morning and we get up
around noon on a normal day. Both of us are night owls and
have been even before we met ;). Yeppers, we’ve got a lot
in common with each other. LOL big reason that we’re married.
We love most of the same TV programs and we’re both poets.
Also we both love to take pictures and many other things, so
ya can kind of see how we ended up together huh! The years
have been enlightening. I experienced my first snow storm
when we moved up here in 2007. Judy experienced her first
heat wave in 2001 when we got married and she moved to
Texas with me. Of course she didn’t actually fill the heat
until the following year, being we were married late in the
year. Yep, October 2 2001 we got married and we then
at the end of the month took our 3 day drive to Texas in
the cooler portion of weather. Life has been a wild ride
as we’ve learned many things together. These two boys
have been a great addition to our little family. They do at
times get on my last nerve though 🙂 LOL, but then that’s
to be expected hehehe. We all have our good and bad days.
Well, our neighbors are still mowing and I wish they would
give it a break, at least until I’m finished writing hehehehe.
I just looked out and saw that one of their boys is riding
around having fun on one of the mowers minus the mower.
Yep, he ain’t mowing. He’s just playing LOL. He just now
looked up at my window and shrugged. I think he might of
realized that he’s disturbing us. He just parked his little
ride and turned it off hehehe. I don’t care what he does.
it’s where he does it that matter and driving right beside
our window back and forth is not the best place hehehehe.
So anyways, The electricity just flickered and tripped my
surge protector. Ok, it’s reset :). The kid is back to riding
the mowerless riding mower. Oh well, it’s ain’t that loud,
at least as long as he isn’t driving close to our house which
he is getting close LOL. Ain’t our lives exciting hehehehe!
My granddaughter Sami will be 13 on the 10th of August.
She’s growing up so fast and I cannot see it from up here.
I miss my daughter Jamye and Sami. I keep up with my
daughter and granddaughter on Facebook. I love them
tons. Wish we could afford to go and visit, but at this
point and time we can’t. Maybe one day in the future :).
For now, we are trying to keep our heads above water
which is no pun about our rain LOL. Judy heated up some
sausage balls for us to eat for breakfast. I don’t think
Milo realizes that we are eating or he would be all over
us begging and barking LOL. This house has most surely
been blessed. We have so many things to be thankful for
that we could not count them. Yes we have hard times,
but we have each other. Benny and Milo are also a great
empowerment to bringing smiles to our faces. They can be
so silly at times, like late last night they were playing
chase back and forth throughout the house which is more
than likely the reason they are both tuckered out right
now LOL. They were a bit excited when we got up, but
that soon burned down and they did what dogs do hehehe.
Took a nap! God is always in control. Yet, He doesn’t
always do what we want Him to do. He does what He
knows is best. Yes, life and death as well as sickness
and health affect us all, but they are the things we must
experience in our human forms so that we might seek
for His Grace. Many though do not seek Him and they
get lost in their own deceptions. Let God become part
of your life that through His Son Jesus Christ you will
seek the blessings and not just find the turmoil. We will
all pass away one day from this plane of life, but it’s our
choices that will determine where we go from here. So,
are you going to choose God or are you going to choose
the darker path? OK, so right now I am hearing thunder
in the distance which means that along with the electric
being tripped, we might get some more rain LOL and so
I reckon I need to hurry and finish this before the storm
hits hehehe. So, it’s time for me to be taking my quick
little visit back through all that I have written here to
see if can find a good word or phrase that I might be able
to use for the title for today’s brand new poem, so it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I may if found
a good title. Now let’s see if I can use it LOL. Looks
like I have not used it before, so here goes!

Took A Nap

When the thunder
crashed and roared
it gave time
for sleep explored.
I took a nap
with winds of time
sought through thunder
found sublime.
The sleepy time
that thunder brought
was what often
I have sought.
For I often
listen to
my CD thunder
sleeping hue.
The sound is as
hypnotic trails
bringing sleep
with slumber sails.
I find at times
God gives a zap
sounds of thunder
for my nap.

There ya go hehehe. Yes I do love to hear the sounds of rain
and thunder. They are very serenading to me. I even have CD’s
with rain and thunder that I play beside our bed to help us sleep.
I also have the ocean sounds :). We though often listen to the
music from Moodscapes on Dish when we sleep. LOL we will
also watch cartoons until we fall asleep hehehe. Yep, it seems
like we’re one of the same huh! I have a quick prayer request.
My sisters husband DD is getting much sicker with the cancer
affecting his gall bladder now. Please lift them in your prayers.
My mom is really worried too. I guess I need to hurry and find
and ending so I need to be telling you what I tell you every week
and that is I wrote some more poems. 10 more poems with four
of them being Christmas poems HoHoHo. Also I once again
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope
you find one or two of either or both that you like. In any sense
I hope I’ve kept you entertained 🙂 Now it’s time for me to be
searching for that confounded off switch, but not before I wish
you a most wonderful God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. Now to find that off switch. There ya are
you little varmint. You’re not even trying now LOL. It’s not
hiding when your sitting right in front of me ya silly hehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

When The Snow Falls

As summer subsides
the seasons are found
when the snow falls
on a wintery ground.
Seasonal blessings
come into view
when the snow falls
onto all thereunto
Christmastime comes in
white with the snow
as many think of
that old HoHoHo.
Santa’s old red suit
just waiting to fly
soon in the minutes of
Christmas Eve’s sky.
When the snow falls
it paints things so white
that when you see it
you find such delight.
Blessings from snowflakes
falling each day
seem to give beauty
of a Christmas display.

Within A Snowflake

While snow is falling
and painting the ground,
within a snowflake
a sparkle is found.
Wintertime’s doorway
is covered with snow
when all those white flakes
blow to and fro.
Within a snowflake
is a wonderful sight
that displays daytime
and also at night.
Christmas is thought of
when white snow is seen
covering everything
that once was green.
Even ones houses
find snow on the roof
awaiting for Santa
and each reindeer hoof.
Within a snowflake
are paintings desire
that often make times
Christmas transpire.
So with the moments that
times do partake
Christmas is found
within a snowflake.

As Of Today

No time is sometime
to try and ignore
for as of today now
then was before.
Life finds its struggles
some lesser some hard
with all the patterns
that ones might discard.
As of today now
the pages are turned
leaving so many
times not discerned.
People walk blindly
so often so true
not seeing daily
what they are to view.
Don’t let your minutes
pass by like the wind.
Look for the lessons
you need apprehend.

Beyond Our Sight

When minutes pass on
beyond our sight
sometimes seems as
not so right.
Beyond our thinking
now and today
things might wrongly
then display.
Beyond our sight
of which we see
times might seem as
bad to be.
Yet so often
beyond our view
is misconceived
and not so true.
Beyond our sight
of now and then
times might become
better been.

A Writers Thoughts

The wind of seconds
blows its breeze
as a writers
swelling seas.
A writers thoughts
are found and seen
sometimes as a
moments dream.
Time will pass by
leaving sights
a writers thoughts
of days and nights.
Then a poem is
found repeated
in the mind of
one that’s seated.
The stage is set
with visions tossed
found within
a writers thoughts.

Soon Will Be Christmas

Soon as the summer
loses its turn
soon will be Christmas
we can discern.
All of the hot days
in summertime
will be remembered
as its design.
Some splashing waters
of their swimming days
and some in the shade
just watching the waves.
Some people only
with summertime’s heat
complaining of hot sun
burning their feet.
Soon will be Christmas
with cooler to feel
and maybe snow
on your windowsill.
I find that I’m thinking
all of the time
soon will be Christmas
white snow to find.
Snowflakes a falling
just making their way
to that most wonderful
magical day.
Soon will be Christmas
after summer and fall
as every moment
displays overall.

Windows of Words

Seen through a window
are words of desire
found as just sometimes
things that transpire.
Windows of words
are found in a glare
often as sunshine
displays out there.
Word mounted thinking
of windows we view
are often painted as
red, green and blue.
So many windows
of which we might see
are showing ventures
of times history.
Scenes are all displayed
as we remember
found in the doorways
of life’s burning ember.
Windows of words
are often best viewed
morning to evening
with a good attitude.
Let yourself waken
and see what is there
that could be answers
to many a prayer.

What You’re Thinking

You might think that
ones can’t tell
what you’re thinking
very well.
but so often
actions show
what we’re thinking
where we go.
Often wording
is not true
for so many
do know you.
God can see what
all you’re thinking
and tell if your
ship is sinking.
There is nothing
we can hide,
for Lord Jesus
sees inside.
What you’re thinking
might need changed
and your life then
rearranged.
Let your actions
show your thought
and not try to
hide what’s not.
There is nothing
you can do
to hide from God
what’s truly true.

Behind The Curtain

While the sun is
shining bright
behind the curtain
hides its sight.
For with sunshine
glaring through
it makes hard
to write to you.
All my thoughts are
found on stage
as a poem that’s
page to page.
Written as a
ventured time
in a little
minutes rhyme.
Behind the curtain
time displays
thoughts of mine
of yesterdays.
Also now
and future sights
are the thoughts
this poet writes.
Maybe as some
scenes details
written as
my heart compels.
Yet the thoughts
of mine for certain
are of me
behind the curtain.

December Thoughts

August brings me
wanting waiting
of what I’m
anticipating.
December thoughts
in August views
finds what all
my time pursues.
Seeking snows
December days
with then Christmas
sought to gaze.
Christmas echoes
now and then
here in August
in the wind.
I find that time
in August style
finds me best
with Christmas smile.
Thinking of those
moments blots
brings me smiles
December thoughts.

Haiku
for Aug 3, 2013

As time moves forwards
our past becomes a shadow
that often haunts us.

While summertime fades
it welcomes the leaves of fall
as colors of time.

Seeing a moment
and reacting to its phase
often looks stupid.

Glimmers of sunshine
become waking thoughts to see
as dawn arises.

Going too quickly
with each step that you’re making
could cause you to crash.

Skipping river rocks
can be a most blissful time
as it leaves ripples.

Sadness that we see
has no power over us
if it’s not allowed.

Waking up smiling
brings you chances for blessings
you can spread around.

Seeking perfection
might leave you standing alone
unless it is God.

Nobodies lifestyle
is written in blocks of stone
until we die.

Wisdom comes timeless
as our problems show answers
through many mistakes.

Thresholds of seconds
will often have many views
seen through the windows.

The challenge of now
will sometimes bring deception
to the time you see.

A persons story
might be a slight misworded
leaving you confused,

Beginning right now
gives a chance for some changes,
but make sure they’re good.

Levels of brainwaves
often empower many
and weaken others.

Ones indecisions
can prolong their agony
if drawn out too long.

Changes in viewpoints
can brighten a cloudy day
and display sunshine.

The winds of summer
often blow with desperation
while rains come and go.

Within our heartbeat
holds the chances for true love
while we look around.

The desires of now
could become your own folly
not using good sense.

As the day finds peace
and the sun moves to the west
the night gives us rest.
