The Other End

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How has your weekend been?  I hope last week went well for you.
Judy and I spent most of the week with doctor appointments LOL.
We’ve been doing fairly well though.  It looks like we will live for
a little longer hehehe.  The weather up here is looking more and
more like springtime with each passing day,  but of course being
this is Maine,  it snowed again Thursday morning hehehe.  It all
melted no sooner than it landed aside from places that there was
still snow lying on the ground.  Yet,  most of the snow has all but
gone except for a few spots that the sun don’t shine.  It’s cloudy
today,  but other than that it’s a nice day with a high of 47 degrees
which it is at this moment. It looks like it might rain and according
to my Weather Watcher Live there is a 38 percent chance which
by morning goes up to 41 percent of rain and snow.  Yes I said
snow.  Hey,  this is Maine LOL,  but the weather is supposed to
get up to the 50’s or thereabouts by Tuesday,  during the day of
course LOL.  None the less,  this is springtime up here hehehe.
Milo just scratched at the door and then barked at me saying
he’s gotta go outside and pee again LOL.  Sheesh,  he goes to
the bathroom more than I do hehehe.  Anyways,   this time Judy
got up and let him out.  So now it’s on with my rambling thoughts.
I think Judy’s fixing to see if she can find something to watch
on TV with the boys.  Milo was already up on the bed and so
I picked up Benny and put him up with him and mom.  They
both then jumped up on my chest wanting me to stay in there
with them hehehe.  Not Judy,  just the boys.  No Judy didn’t
jump up on my chest hehehe.  Anyways,  they are in there
fixing to watch a movie called Shawshank Redemption.  I told
Judy that I would fix us something to eat as soon as I finish
with this.  So it’s onwards with THIS hehehe.  It’s gotten up to
48 F degrees now.  I do see a few sprinkles on the windows
so we might get a little rain.  Not that we need it or anything
with the tons of melting snow and all.  I wish there were a way
I could dig a trench to where the droughts are and send them
some of this water.   We’ve had some bad floods up this way
just like every year after the snow begins melting and the
rains begin.  If it ain’t snowing it’s freaking raining up here.
I’m guessing that there are many down south that would
love to have some of this weather.  Just remember,  when it
gets cold,  it gets freaking cold and you may have to do a
little digging in the snow so to uncover your car or make it
to where you can get out of your driveway hehehe.  All in
all it isn’t too bad.  I’ve sort of gotten used to it since our
move up here in December of 2007.  We’ve had a few little
problems with heat,  but we’ve survived.  Those Christmas
songs and stories make more sense now that I have had
a white Christmas ever since our move up here hehehehe.
Before,  the songs White Christmas and all were just a tad
confusing LOL.  Last night I found a few more of my kin
folk on Facebook.  My cousin/bro Greg asked me to send
him our phone number and I did and he called.  We talked
for a long while finding out what’s been happening in our
lives since we had last seen each other.  Greg was always
a sort of brother to me as was his brother Randy/Phil :).
We never got to spend much time together,  but when we
did I enjoyed it.  I told Greg that he and his wife are more
than welcome to come and visit us.  Hehehe they can also
get them a white Christmas to boot if they come up for
the holidays LOL.   Greg said that he’s gonna call again
tonight so we can talk some more.  We have a whole lot
of catching up to do.  So what else is happening up this
way?  Hmm,  good question.  Judy and I went shopping
yesterday,  so we are good maybe until the end of the
month hehehe which is only a few days away.  We’re
still hoping to make it down south next month,  but time
will tell if we have enough money to make the drive or
if I think our car will survive the drive.  I bought it new
in 1995,  but it has seen many years of bumps and grinds
since then.  The snowplow ran into the rear of our car
this winter while he was trying to plow our driveway,
but as old as our car is and due to it being classified as
totaled when the neighbor we had when we first moved
up here backed into it while not seeing it due to it being
covered with snow hehehe.   So the mess that was made
by the snowplow was not worth the hassle LOL.  It still
runs and gets us where we need to go and that’s what
matters.  I cleaned the air breather a few days ago and
that pepped it right up.  I might need to one day change
the spark plugs, but for now,  it’s running fine.  It does
smoke a bit when we first start it up,  but it stops after
a while.  Cold weather is hard on seals and gaskets and
that is what we have an abundance of hehehe.  At least
5 or 6 months of winter with temps often in the subzero
range hehehe.  I sometimes feel as though I moved to
Alaska,  not Maine hehehe.  We still have a few patches
of snow here and there,  but they’re gradually melting
from view.  The floods have calmed down which I am
sure there are many grateful :).  Benny’s in the other
room barking at practically any type of thumping sound
that he hears hehehe.  Though he is good about letting
us know when someone’s at the door LOL.  He then
goes nuts and will often come and get us if we don’t
respond to his call LOL.  Milo will only join in with the
barking if he thinks Benny is on to something hehehe.
He’s old and doesn’t want to waste his efforts on the
little things hehehe.  He does though get excited when
I poke my head inside the bedroom and say hello LOL.
For that matter Benny does too :).  I know we often
have problems,  but with God all things are possible.
We have a quaint little home even if the toilet is still
sitting in the middle of the floor LOL.  Hopefully it
will be fixed tomorrow.  It was supposed to have been
fixed over a week ago.  Yet,  we do have the toilet
in the spare room at the other end of the house LOL.
So,  God has made sure we have what we need,  no
matter if it’s a bit troublesome :).  Yes,  we have our
share of struggles,  but God pulls us through with
strength from His Son and the many guardian angels
that are watching over us.  Thank You God for all of
the blessings we have received and shall receive as
time runs its course.  Now I believe I have rambled
quite enough and need to have a little looksee 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 little
place of my recollection that I seem to always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may have found
a good title and after checking,  I see that I haven’t
used it yet,  so it’s a go.  Here’s goes!

The Other End

With distance found
the other end
can seem to be
what times transcend.
The journeys length
of thereunto
might seem to be
a greater view.
The other end
of times we see
might repeat
our history.
With the ages
that we’ve seen
the other end
might seem a dream.
Yet some ventures
black and white
might be shadows
in our sight.
While discerning
where we go
the other end
might not bestow.
With not using
blessings seed
the other end
might not succeed.
Let your journeys
now and then
see more clearly
the other end.
For our fractions
minutes found
the other end
might then astound.
Leaving craters
in your smile
the other end
might be a while.
Don’t lose patience
for God’s ways.
The other end
might be bad days.

Ok,  so there ya go hehehe.  I know,  it ain’t that great,  but
hopefully you understood it.  I can hear Judy and the boys in
the bedroom wrestling hehehe.  Benny and Milo must be in a
playful mood.  I opened up the window to let in some fresh air,
but it is 48 F degrees outside,  so I might be closing it up in a
bit.  I’m hungry and I bet Judy and the boys are hungry also,
so I guess I need to be telling you what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
10 more poems,  but none Christmas this week.  Also I wrote
22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.  Now with
that said,  I reckon I need to be searching for that ornery
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most wonderful and
blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now,  where is that dad burned off switch hiding at this
week?  Aha,  there ya are you silly little thing.  I know it
might of seemed a good hiding place in the beginning,  but
it deemed not so great after I opened the window allowing
the curtains to blow.  I see ya trying to stay hidden behind
the curtains hehehe.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce
(and Benny and Milo)

P.S. Speaking of Benny and Milo.  We gave them a
spring trimming and filled up 4 WalMart bags with hair.
They seemed to have gotten a lot smaller hehehehe!

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

Hunting Smiles

Minutes gazing
searching true
many seek
a better view.
Hunting smiles
from week to week
trying to find
a little peek.
Hunting with their
radar on
searching always
dusk to dawn.
Yet those hunting
need to find
sense of humor
in their mind.
Finding things
to laugh about
sometimes in
and sometimes out.
Hunting smiles
can grow a few
with reflections
found in you.

Sunshine Gleams

The day’s begun
with shining beams
found as how
the sunshine gleams.
Making shadows
to begin
as the sunshine
gleams within.
Then some clouds
up in the sky
create pictures
up so high.
Some might look like
things we know
in the clouds
that look like snow.
Some might then just
look like streams
rushing as the
sunshine gleams.

Empty Values

Many taking
all they can
empty values
start to stand.
Finding footings
in each day
as so many
walk that way.
Many seeking
empty things
clothing,  gadgets
and diamond rings,
many find
an empty shell
empty values
gone to Hell.
Let not wanting’s
take control
and then greed
won’t steal your soul.
Empty values
only make
ventured pathways
empty lake.
All the waters
flow away
leaving wanting’s
dismal day.
With ones seeking
what they need
empty values
won’t succeed.

Life Explained

Doorways open
doorways close
often when that
no one knows.
Life has patterns
changing true
as it often
changes view.
Life explained with
questions asked
makes ones answer
life’s unmasked.
Often answers
are just guesses
leading to
so many messes.
Life explained then
is not found
often with ones
common ground.
Many people
only thrive
to find out how
we’re alive.
Yet those answers
free and clear
are from Lord God’s
yesteryear.

Spring Has Sprung

The days of winter
now are gone
as the seasons
just move on.
Spring has sprung
to now attune
new beginnings
flowers bloom.
Winters doorway’s
closing tight
maybe slowly
day and night.
Yet sweet springtime
is in phase
before beginning
summer days.
Spring has sprung
with melting snow
helping all the
flowers grow.

Prayers Are Answered

As many struggle
with wishing away
prayers are answered
in their day to day.
Yet many people
will not see them true,
because of their wishing
and wanting to do.
Prayers are answered,
but we might not see
the yeses or noes
for you and for me.
As every doorway
is waiting ahead
prayers are answered
with what God hath said.
Loosen your grip now
on all your desires
and let Lord Jesus
provide what acquires
Prayers are answered
sometimes with no,
because it’s not then
where we should go.

Surrender

Like the shadows
of the sun
times surrender
one by one.
Pages turning
people read
choosing what
they think they need.
Windows open
sharing views
with so many
don’ts and do’s
So we often
need surrender
what that might
be just pretender.
Let the sadness
fall way
from the times
of yesterday.
Surrender now
your beating heart
and let God
to help you start.

The Poetry Room Again

While sitting here thinking
my thoughts take ahold
thinking of all of the
wintertime’s cold.
My senses awaken
to springtime’s delight
in the poetry room again
each day and night.
I look out the window
and see melting snow
while also seeing
the grass start to grow.
My thoughts are reliving
those wintery days
that I looked outside
with snow blinding gaze.
I saw all the snowflakes
just floating around
while they’d land softly
right there on the ground.
The poetry room again
helps my mind to see
those things that I remember
in my history.
My thoughts pour on paper
with insights and more
in the poetry room again
behind a closed door.

A Worm Will Turn

With acts of liars
times discern
what that’s found
a worm will turn.
Some deceivers
will be found
things to cause
their turnaround.
A worm will turn,
but might repeat
step by step
with liars feat.
So let not your
path to burn
back and forth
as worms will turn.
Use the lessons
that were found
when you saw one
turn around.
Many people
will change true
for the better
thereunto,
but some people
never learn
for there as
a worm will turn.

A Glimmer of Light

Morning breaks with
a glimmer of light
coming from
the end of night.
Ageless of echoes
lit up so great
a glimmer of light
does surely ornate.
Found as a sunbeam
often as gold
painting a picture
that time has foretold.
Rhythms of heartbeats
shadowy scenes
are often glistening
that of some streams.
Pouring as dew drops
that glisten in sight
there is some sunshine
a glimmer of light.

Haiku
for Apr 26,  2014

Our journeys forward,
might have yesterdays repeats
found in the asphalt.

Nobodies doorways
open correctly always,
for life brings changes.

Searching for stardom
could end in much suffering
with no privacy.

Pointless perception
brings forth endless arguing
through differences.

A footstep in time
began before we were here
with God’s Breath of life.

Looking deep within
you might find a horrid sight
that you let exist.

Moon shadows of night
will create many pictures
that might seem haunting.

Unwanted lifestyles
might actually be best,
for our wants are bad.

Seeking a turnstile
could lead you down some wrong roads
that are not for you.

Springtime’s arrival
breathes life into many things
as raindrops will fall.

Hearing some birds chirp
is as springtime’s awakening
with flowers that bloom.

Deceptive people
have to face reality
sooner or later.

Challenges are tools
that can strengthen us in time,
but often with pain.

In our reflection
a mirror displays the truth
that we may not like.

Not seeing stop signs
could end in your destruction
or someone else’s.

Summer is coming
maybe with a few sunburns
on some ignorance.

Good times and bad times
follow hand in hand with life
as there must be both.

Available times
might be filled with much regret
so take heed your choice.

Losing a loved one
is just a physical thing,
for they’re still with you.

Conceiving a thought
gets different perceptions
from other people.

The leaves on the trees
are as voices of springtime
just saying hello.

Sounds of birds chirping
in the early morning light
is serenading.
