ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How are you doing?  We’re doing pretty well.  Staying warm.
The weather is being crazy still.  It’s snowing pretty heavily
right now and it’s 28 F degrees.  So all of that snow that had
melted away is being replaced quite quickly LOL.   I just went
out and started up our car to let it run for a bit and charged up
the battery.  Cold weather is hard on batteries ya know.  We
have some new neighbors,  although they might not last any
longer than our previous neighbors hehehe.  Time will tell :).
Yeppers,  The neighbor exchange rate seems to be at a high
rate up here for some reason.  While I was out starting the
car I also took a few pictures around our place.  Yep,  snow!
It’s pretty to look at,  but we’re very happy that we do not
need to go anywhere :).  I almost slipped and busted my old
behind again last night when trying to find Benny and make
him come back in LOL.  Fortunately I thought before I put
all of my weight on the front step hehehe.  I had hold of the
doorway and touched my foot to the top step and noticed
it was iced over hehehe.  Now though with snow on it,  it’s
not so bad.  I would shovel it,  but I think I’ll wait until it has
finished snowing LOL.  It’s supposed to slack off and stop
by Monday morning early.  Benny can’t get enough of the
snow hehehe.  He loves to play in the snow as he bounces
around like a little rabbit and sticks his face in it hehehe.
He’s a regular little snow dog.  Milo has gotten to where
he will walk around in it and explore.  Judy made her and
I some cheese danish for breakfast yesterday and we’ve
still got half of it for our breakfast today yummy.  It’s not
something I could eat very often,  but it is good.  I’m not
much on sweets.  Judy and the boys are in the bedroom
so to let me do my writing.  It’s hard to write when Benny
and Milo want my undivided attention hehehe.  They will
scratch on the door time to time wanting to come in here
with me,  but Judy makes them stop.  There’s not much
to report other than our landlord got our Mailbox back
up a few days ago.  He was having our mail sent to his
house and then he would bring to us for the time that our
mailbox was down buried in the snow due to the snowplow
hitting it LOL.  Hopefully that won’t happen again.  Our
mailbox wasn’t damaged,  just the post that held them
all up.  One of the mailboxes has been messed up since
last year,  but we haven’t had any long term neighbors
that used it so it’s never been replaced.  It’ll still hold
mail.  It’s just a little mangled LOL.  We got a new box
a year or so ago and it’s still intact.  Benny has begun
barking once again at our new found neighbors every
time he hears a car door or an engine LOL.  I’ve gotta
go through that thing again of letting him know that
they live there and to get used to it :).  He’s our little
guard dog/doorbell hehehe.  Yep,  if somebody pulls
up in our drive and knocks at the door,  he will bark
until he knows we know about it.  After we have shown
him that we are aware,  he hushes,  up until the next
noise LOL.  I think I liked it better when he didn’t
bark hehehe.  Though,  he was just a puppy when we
got him and he hadn’t yet learned that he could bark.
He definitely knows about it now LOL!  Milo will wait
to see if it’s worth barking about before he joins in :).
Judy just brought me the last of the cheese danish
and so I’m gonna stop here and eat…….chewing……..
Ok,  so I had to stop for a minute,  being it is a big
hunk and it’s really sweet hehehe.  I guess I’ll see
how much more I can write before I am able to eat
another piece 🙂  I just looked at the pictures that I
took when I went out to start the car and they came
out pretty good.  I mean it’s snow and white is white
ya know hehehe.  Yet,  I do love to watch it as it
falls from the sky and paints its many pictures within
the scenery making its own.  Time for another bite
of danish hehehe.   We took Benny and Milo with
us to get their new dog tags.  Of course they stayed
in the car,  but they enjoyed the ride as they always
do :).  I got some great pictures on the way to the
New Limerick Town Office.  I’ll put a few of them
in my stationery.  Photography is one of my biggest
loves.  I enjoy writing and playing music,  but it’s
the photography that helps my other passions to
thrive.  God gave me these passions and I thank
Him every day for them.  I have yet to understand
how I can write so much more than most people
with my writing 10 poems and 22 haiku in just a few
hours.  I have learned to just accept my gift and
do as well with it as I can.  We all have our special
gifts,  but we may not have become aware of them,
or the right time and place has not presented itself
for the gift to begin to shine.  Some gifts might be
caregiving for there are so many that need them
that have that special glow.  Never find yourself
jealous of another’s gift,  for you might find that
they are not so proud of their own,  but don’t let
pride become your destruction,  for if you let your
ego to grow too large,  it can destroy your gift.
Find the joy of our many blessings that might go
unnoticed in our day to day lives.  Often we will
see a wondrous scene that makes us smile and
not realize that it is a blessing.  Now I believe its
time for me to take some more bites of my danish
and finish it up and then 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 of today’s brand new poem.  So here’s
the last bite…………chewing yummy yum………….
Ok,  now off to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I believe I found a good title.  Now let’s see if
I can do anything with it hehehe like put some
words to it that make any sense :).  Here goes.

Photography

A pretty sight
so timelessly
is often found
photography.
Pictures taken
with our eyes
of the trees
and of the skies.
A picture box then
comes in place
to record
a smiling face.
Photography
of hearts desire
makes a time
again transpire.
Scenes remembered
in our minds
photography
is of the times.
Blessings painted
we can see
is often found
photography.
Times that passed
and are no more
photography
can make them soar.
Those recorded
memories
of some snow
or deep blue seas
then become
a endless day
photography
not gone away.

So,  did it make any sense to you?  I hope it did, but
if not,  SORRY hehehe.  It’s still snowing outside and
it looks like I will have to do some shoveling in the
morning,  but not much.  There is not much else for me
to report from up here except I should be getting my
PC that has Windows XP and Outlook Express on it
back in the next week.  That’ll be nice.  Then I will be
able to do my journals without having to bump Judy
off of her PC LOL.  If they would only fix this darned
Windows 8 to where Outlook Express worked on it
I would be slightly happy.  But that’s not even half
of the problems.  Windows 8 isn’t compatible with
most of my old programs that I’ve used for decades
and the compatibility setting doesn’t work for them.
Thousands of dollars worth of my software will not
work on this piece of garbage.  I have managed to
get some programs to work,  but they crash all of
the time due to the screwed up Windows 8.  Oh
well,  Microsoft says they’ll cease the updates for
Windows XP by April,  but that don’t matter to me.
As long as you have a good Anti virus program
as well as a Malware program there shouldn’t be
a problem.  Yes the programs that they put out
there that are for Windows 8 might not work on
it,  but I could care less about that right now :).
So,  it seems that I took off and rambled a bit
again didn’t I LOL!  I guess it’s time for me to
be telling you what I tell you almost every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems with 2 of them be sort of
Christmassy.  Also once again I wrote 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope
1 or 2 of the poems or haiku make you think and
maybe even smile.  Now I think it’s about time
for me to begin my search for that confounded
off switch that loves to try and play hide and seek,
but not before I wish you a most wonderful God
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Ok,  so where’s that silly off switch
hiding this week?  I see ya you silly thing LOL.
Once again,  hiding behind my Mountain Dew
is not the greatest place to hide.  Ya know I do
take a drink ever so often hehehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Hazards Driveway

Folds of rhythms
holes reside
hazards driveway
countryside.
Scenes so bumpy
pathways found
as some holes
upon the ground.
Hazards driveway
comes and goes
when it rains
and when it snows.
As a washboards
minutes time
hazards driveway
seems to rhyme.
Repeated turnstiles
echo through
hazards driveway
there and to.
Bringing forth some
bumpy trails
from a driveways
own details.

Leather And Silk

When found together
with many one day
leather and silk might
make a display.
Some found as leather
and some silk at heart
joining together
to make things to start.
Combining the portions
of each found design
into a new detail
for others to find.
As leather and silk
with different shoes
we create doorways
different views.
Learning from another
and how they think
we can find lessons
much better in sync.

Don’t Blame God

When troubles come
don’t let yourself find
just one to blame for
that point in time.
Look and see your part
within that display
and learn much better
what made it that way.
Often things happen
just timelessly found
as our humanity
goes round and round.
Sometimes a problem
will sit on our shelf
displayed from something
brought on by our self.
So don’t blame God for
all that goes wrong,
because many things are
just dusk to dawn.
Look for the reasons
and you might just find
a roller coaster ride
that ends up just fine.
Sometimes the doorways
that we enter through
need then to be there
for a much better you.
So don’t blame God,
for He loves you so,
and things might be needed
to help you to grow.

Limits On Life

Life is a pathway
sometimes so blind
found with some portions
that many don’t find.
Seasons of heartbeats
will end in strife
as then so many
put limits on life.
Life is a turnstile
that we are to view
not meant as limits
on all we’re to do.
Many will leave their
lives hopelessly
not seeing what all
can be possibly.
Possibilities live
in each you and I
while many put limits
on life and don’t try.
Let God to help you
find strength deep within
to find a better you
as new days begin.

A Christmas Dream

As seasons pass
we might remember
that great time
amidst December
A special time
that comes to play
found awaiting
Christmas Day.
A Christmas dream
of Santa Claus
found with Children’s
oohs and ahs.
The great dream
with Christmas snow
and old Santa’s
HoHoHo.
The seasons pass,
but dreams survive
keeping Christmas
so alive.
A Christmas dream
of hearts desire
burning as
a Christmas fire.
Stockings hung
with smiling faces
found above
some fireplaces.
The season grows
as time ticks on
a Christmas dream
from dusk to dawn.

Winter’s Window

Morning arises
with seasons to view
as pages turning
the way that they do.
Now winter’s window
has opened so clear
to show the pathways
of it so sincere.
Yet after wintertime
soon will be spring
found within doorways
with birds that will sing.
Often when winter
has passed on it way
ones will look back then
with wanting array.
For when the weather
turns warm to transpire
many will bicker
when they then perspire.
Let not the seasons
to leave you in woe
search for the blessings
in winter’s window.

A Card Of Love

When someone
has lost their smile
in their minutes
moments mile.
A card of love
can lose the frown
by making it
turn upside down.
The lives of many
might find favor
in a card of love
with friendly flavor.
For it sometimes
only takes
a card of love
to stop Earthquakes.
A heart that’s lost
a point and time
a card of love
can heal the mind.
Don’t let someone
walk alone
in their sadness
flesh and bone.
A card of love
can help them out
when their life has
fear and doubt.

Christmas Quest

Through the door of
dreamers minds
a Christmas quest
seeks wondrous finds.
Dreams and schemes
of different ways
found within
those Christmas days.
A Christmas quest
is found displayed
in a summertime
lemonade.
Seeking savored
Christmas views
found in summers
tennis shoes.
Many dream of
all the best
found within
their Christmas quest.

Look And See

Find the blessings
in your life
and cease searching
only strife.
Look and see what’s
good each day
and find joy
a wondrous way.
Search your mind
to find some peace
from a moments
own release.
Lose the sadness
other days
and find good
beyond the greys.
Look and see
what God has done
every day
through His Own Son.
You might find
a smiling face
through the love
of God’s Own Grace.

Clinking Chains

Lives of turmoil
find dismay
seen within
their day to day.
Clinking chains
of their desires
become burning
raging fires.
Clinking chains
of there and then
become times
remember when.
Seasons pass with
much regret
clinking chains
that can’t forget.
Lose the wanting
bringing pains
of the certain
clinking chains.

Haiku
for Jan 17,  2014

Many remember
only the bad times they’ve found
and not the good times.

Life is a turnstile
that often begins to rust
due to lack of use.

Simplicity soars
when common sense is used well
dealing with the facts.

Lessons from a dog
say when not to bark loudly
and when to speak up.

Beyond a turnstile
are answers to some questions
spawning more questions.

Looking through windows
might bring about many views
that find you trouble.

Looks of a liar
can be hidden behind verbs
sweating profusely.

Lines are misgiving
when they lead many pathways
filled with illusion.

As winter subsides
it shows a weakened venture
that gives way to spring.

Long term arrangements
will often change many times
before they are done.

Lengths of a roadway
don’t determine where it goes,
just the mere distance.

When flowers will bloom
they make scenes to see and smell
that enhance our world.

Lives of a catfish
are as days on the bottom
waiting to be caught.

Looking passed today
tomorrow might seem cloudy,
but it might clear up.

Looking too closely
might show flaws unimportant
that make no difference.

The garden of life
might have some unwanted weeds
that become flowers.

Hearing a bird sing
brings alive the sounds springtime
with fluttering scenes.

Searching for snowflakes
might find you with neck aches
from looking skyward.

Minutes are just time
that become as mere shadows
of what that has passed.

Long awaited love
could become much more spicy
if found with patience.

Knowing someone’s name
does not mean that you know them
for names are not blood.

A scene from today
might become a reflection
seen in tomorrow.
