To The Wayside

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well I made it back LOL! Ain’t this weather been weird!!! I tell ya,
it’s been so slushy up here that even cleats don’t do any good being
there isn’t anything to grab hold of. The temps have been real high
even still. Yet this morning I would of rathered a dry ground without
snow on it to work on the car. The under guard of the car due to all
the snow finally worked loose and began to drag. I had to climb up
under the front end of the car and unscrew the last screw holding it on.
I’ll put it back on when the weather gets a little bit better. Right now
it’s good frost bite weather. And my left leg almost got it. My fingers
are in bad shape as well, being I had to take my gloves off to be able
to use the pliers. Oh well, that’s life in a nut shell up this part of the
world LOL. Have you been keeping up with the Earth quake that hit
Chile? It was supposed to cause a bad tsunami. Thank God it was
not as bad as expected, yet there were over 300 this far found dead
in Chile as the count rises. The reason there’s not more deaths was the
fact that Chile has been known to have many Earth quakes and have
upgraded building conditions to withstand most Earth quakes. The
tsunami was supposed to hit Hawaii real hard, but turned out at least
50 percent less than expected and all went well. Thank God for that.
Ok so it’s onto yet another topic hopefully a little more on the lighter
side LOL. It’s still snowing up here as usual hehe. We have been
weathering it fairly well. I still cannot find a reason why ones would
want to live up here. It’s a bloody nightmare hehehe. I guess I will
always be a Texan. It would be nice to be able to see my friends once
in a while or anybody for that matter. This morning I fell again on
my left hip when my feet slipped out from under me on the steps.
I hope it didn’t mess me up any worse hehehe. God knows I don’t
need no more problems. Judy and I are still messing with all of the
farms in FarmVille, FarmTown and CountryLife :). They seem to
take up a lot of our time LOL. Especially CountryLife hehehehe!
I try ever so often to call a few of my friends up on the phone and
find out how they’re doing. Yet there is no way for me to be able
to call everyone :). Ain’t that much time in the day hehehehehehe!
OUCH, I just raised my head up to take a drink of my soda and
my neck cracked. Sounded like a firecracker LOL. My old body
is falling apart. I couldn’t be a organ donor hehehehe. I don’t
think I could pay anybody to take them off my hands LOL. I’m
an old clunker with no good parts hehehe. Ok so my brain is still
working a little 🙂 LOL! Nobody could find out how to operate
it being the user manual never got printed hehehe. God gave me
this brain to use to find ways to do things and thoughts to think
and so I shall continue until it can no longer do the job. We all
have tools that God has given us, yet many do not use them and
let the gifts fall to the wayside. Don’t throw your gifts away just
because you feel they aren’t as good as someone else’s. Every
gift is great and in God’s eyes needs to be used. Your gift might
be not so standoutish, but none the less important. Don’t let
envy become your downfall and cause you to look down on your
own gifts. We are all important, just in different fields of need.
It’s time for me to be using my gift by searching back through
all I’ve written to try and find a good word or phrase that will
work for the title for today’s brand new poem. So it’s away
I go to that place of my recollection, to that place that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I found a good title.
Now let’s see what I can do with it LOL :), if anything!

To The Wayside

Times of envy
leave ones found
seeing themselves
as really down.
To the wayside
many fall
when they lose
their daily call.
Letting envy
destroy you
makes your vision
misconstrue.
In mere moments
ones are seen
as screen doors
on a submarine.
Closing doors
to hide away
yet in flows
the light of day.
So don’t envy
and lose pride.
Don’t just fall
to the wayside.
Show your blessings
of a smile
and help others
reconcile.

Ok, so there ya go. I hope that makes some sense to you. It does
to me hehe, but then I have always had a weird way of thinking:).
I guess I have just about said all that can be said or at least hehe
all that I can think of LOL. So I reckon it’s time for me to tell ya
what I tell ya all the time and that is, I wrote some more poems.
Three of em are Christmassy style poems. The rest are hehehehe
well ya know, just my style of poetry. Also yes of course, I wrote
22 more haiku for my haiku lovers out there :). I hope you like
a few the poems and haikus. With that said, I guess I need to be
searching for that old off switch to cease my writing, but first I
must wish you a most wonderful God filled week. Remember
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now where’s that off switch at
this time???? Hehehe found it under my rear end LOL. Ok so
see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and yes haikus hehe
10 and 22 🙂

Daily Reunion

Points of confusion
display some themes
layered with tremors
of nightmares and dreams.
Many times moments
are out of sync
of the way Jesus
would have us to think.
So when confusions
rocking your boat
seek to find signs of
a happier note.
Written in blood stains
Jesus has bled
let the confusion
seep from your head.
Let Jesus help your
points of confusion
by making Him a
daily reunion.

Winters Midmorning

Winters midmorning
sings its sweet tune
sometimes of stories
coming up soon.
Its featured displays
come with such force
painted with echoes
with no remorse.
Winters remembrance
states its own name
from Christmas season
of which it came.
Winter then dances
its own display
scented with paintings
of that great day.
Snow covered hillsides
tasty and sweet
seeming that they are
so good to eat.
Winters midmorning
centers its theme
that is like Christmas
found in a dream.

May Have Lessons

Waves of problems
show their face
sometimes with a
slight disgrace.
All those problems
that will come
might be answers
from God’s Son.
So much time
of worry and doubt
take over many
in their daily route.
Waves will burden
if you’re not ready
standing with Jesus
ever so steady.
Yet there are times
that we’re not strong
for we’re not always
where we belong.
Our humanity
causes despair
when we forget
the answers from prayer.
So many praying
might forget true
what that is God’s Will
for me and you.
He may have journeys
we must go down
that may have lessons
come from a frown.

Shortsighted Views

Shortsighted people
find moments gone
when they’re not looking
to a new dawn.
Looking to closely
might just mislead
seeing shortsighted
and not the need.
Look to the future
what can be done
if we will trust in
Jesus God’s Son.
Don’t be shortsighted
with all you see.
Have faith in Jesus
and see what can be.
Shortsighted people
with shortsighted views
only see fragments
of falses and trues.

Winters Playground

Snow is falling
from the skies
painting all
within my eyes.
Scenes awaken
with pure white
as snow’s falling
left and right.
Winters playground
seen today
takes my troubles
far away.
Snow white moments
have now said
snow is falling
on my head.
Tasty snowflakes
north and south
now are melting
in my mouth.
In this seasons
morning noon,
evening comes
a bit too soon.
Daylights fading
snowy white
to the shades
of dark of night.

Put On A Smile

Wearers of smiles
dissolve a frown
when they are smiling
all there around.
Even pretended
a smile so to say
can make the difference
between night and day.
So if you’re saddened
colored with blue
put on a big smile
and take it with you.
That smile you’re smiling
might reflect back
from one another
to help you on track.
Then that mere smile
of faking degree
might just become
your own reality.

Do What You Can

Long lines of hurry
and worry about
leaves many standing
without a way out.
Tomorrows worries
are hurried each day
and are the causes
of so much that’s gray.
Gray hairs of frequent
worries begun
leaves many standing
with nothing done.
All the tomorrows
long lines arrays
become confusions
minds in a maze.
Look to today
and do what you can
and then tomorrow
will find ways to stand.

Spring Through Fall

Looking outside
I see only snow
white all surrounding
where all I go.
Out through the windows
painted in sight
I see the white snow
each day and night.
Dreaming of springtime
looking outside
I find the snowflakes
taking a ride.
White snow is falling
here in my view
looking outside
the way that I do.
Springtime and summer
one day will be
without the white snow
that I now see.
Yet then dear winter
will come agin
bringing its season
to then begin.
Christmas will follow
with its display
and Spring through fall
will then go away.

Use The Lessons

Walking blindly
without thinking
might be what
that’s caused your sinking.
Letting others
think for you
might sometimes
be wrong to do.
Use your brain
as best you can
with opened eyes
and with a plan.
Yet don’t ignore
what ones might say,
because they might
help you today.
Walking blindly
endless miles
might destroy
your chance for smiles.
Use the lessons
days displayed
to make choices
better made.

As A River

Seen as a river
our time might flow
in the directions
wrong to go.
Our river’s winding
through each day
sometimes headed
in the wrong way.
Discern your moments
weathered whiles
and determine
better miles.
Seen as a river
our time might be
headed out to
the deep blue sea.
Thoughts might vanquish
leaving found
moments seeking
some solid ground.
Discern your minutes
rivers wild
and let blessings
be compiled.
Let the sections
that you flow
seek where Jesus
wants to go.

Haiku
for Feb 27, 2010

Mirrors reunion
might be what you remember,
yet do not want to.

Looking to the past
can leave today as empty
without a mere thought.

Uncanning anger
sometimes misleads so many
that don’t understand.

Headstrong with hurry
leads many down empty roads
leading to nowhere.

Leaning against wind
might just become your folly.
You might blow away.

Marking down timeframes
is good at certain moments.
Some we must forget.

In helter skelter
there is not much united
that is worth a thing.

Jesus is watching
as many do their on thing.
He awaits our prayers.

Notions are followed
which might lead into trouble.
Please think it over.

Gathering fragments
that time has dispersed to you
might resolve to bad.

Look into your heart
and find that beating essence
of Jesus inside.

Minutes will prosper
if they’re experienced proper
with God as your guide.

Out through my window
I see nothing but white snow
that’s painted all around.

The Jingle Bell rhythms
in the songs that we have sung
remind me of then.

Nighttime is coming
with the day moving along
as footprints of time.

The sound of a loon
on a sweet hot summers night
becomes as echoes.

A wolf in disguise
might be someone you’re trusting,
so make sure they’re true.

An octave real high
might be heard by a dogs ears,
yet not understood.

Guides to tomorrow
are the patterns through today
as they each will come.

While making your mark
don’t use someone as your pad
to scribble your lines.

Ongoing trouble
might be caused by repeating
what you tried before.

Jumbles of oceans
hold waters of our journeys
that may run aground.

Speed Bumps and Walls

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

So how’ve ya been? I hope you’ve been staying on the good side.
If not, I pray that you find some peace soon. Well, to begin with,
it’s snowing again. Surprised hehehe, I think not! It doesn’t feel
too bad temperature wise though. Judy and some others at work
bought some new work shoes from the company and they’re giving
them all the foot aches. Judy is going to try to start wearing them
on Fridays in hopes of breaking them in. There’s already been a
few call in for days off due to foot aches LOL. I told Judy what I
used to do with new work shoes. Stretching them with my hands
and all, but she said she will just wear them once a week and that
might slowly break them in. Oh well hehehe, she has shoes and
that’s all that matters. We’ve been getting back into watching
videos on our TV in the bedroom like we used to do in the past.
That’s fun :)! We use it as movie night. I’ll fix us something to eat
and we’ll climb in bed and enjoy. We are still doing our farms
in FarmTown, FarmVille and Country Life as well as the other
games such as Pet Society LOL. PetVille has too many problems
for me. It’s way too slow for one. Yet we both go there once in
a blue moon hehehe and get our pets out of the pound LOL!!!!!
Life is good. Weird, but good hehehe! Yeppers :), life in this
old household is at times strange, but then that’s what keeps it
interesting LOL. I haven’t done another conga drum video in
a long while. I might do a little recording this week. God only
knows :). Gotta let my fingers heal first. The cold weather has
them cracking along with old arthritis aches and pains LOL.
It sucks getting old huh! Oh well, life goes on as it may with
its speed bumps and walls. God let’s us experience what we
need to so to help us with the next moment. Life may seem as
jumbled confusion to you, but the pieces are falling into place
as God intends. Looking back on my past, I wonder how many
guardian angels I wore out LOL. They were probably doing a
tag team on me hehehe. Tag me out will ya, he has me in the
ropes and I’m pooped. It’s your turn angel number 99 hehehe!
Yep, I’m reasonably sure many of us gave our guardian angels
sent from God and run for their money, hehe not meaning in
any factor that they have any use for money. I know many
that gave God the dickens of a time, but today the same as me
they are working for Him. God knew the outcome and knew
what He needed to allow to happen in our lives. The struggles
made us stronger. Well, I looked outside again and it’s still
snowing. The snow is so beautiful as it falls from the skies. I
simply love to watch it snow. God sends us beauty often and
we will be found just looking for the problems within it rather
than seeing the beauty of which God’s given. Don’t just let
yourself search for all the problems. Search for the beauty
within the essence of thereof. If you feel like frowning then
take a deep breath and smile. You might even get a laugh
from the faces that you make while trying to smile hehehe.
Sometimes we just need to jump start the smile. Go ahead
and give it a try. You’ve nothing to lose. So OK, it’s about
time for me to be taking my little venture back through all
that I’ve written to see if I can find a good word or phrase
that will work for the title for today’s brand new poem. So
it’s off I go to that place of recollection that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I stumbled on a good title
a bit back. Now let’s see what I can do with it if in fact
anything hehehehe…

Speed Bumps and Walls

Time table journeys
speed bumps and walls
give us the lessons
from bad that befalls.
Looking glass doorways
linked thereunto
make a little clearer
for journeys to view.
All of the speed bumps
and walls that we find
somehow make rhythms
to help change our mind.
Sometimes our troubles
that God allows seen
may have the answers
to change self esteem.
Speed bumps and walls
from times setting sun
might have the answers
that’s not yet begun.

Hehehe made ya think huh LOL! Did ya ever wonder how I
come up with these poems. All I can say is God keeps me full
of thoughts. One thing nobody has ever said to me, was hey
Bill, take time to think hehe! It seems that I am always with
my many thoughts. It makes it hard to rest though :). I think
my brain refuses to go into hibernation LOL. I guess the day
will come when my brain shuts down hehehe. Oh well, until
then, I will keep on writing. I guess I need to be telling you
about the poems and haikus I wrote Saturday huh! Yeppers,
I wrote 10 more poems, one of which is another poem to my
lovely wife and another is a wintry style poem hehehehehehe.
I also I wrote 25 haiku instead of 22 by mistake :). When I
get to writing haikus, it’s sometimes hard for me to stop :).
Oh well hehehehe, I hope ya enjoy a few of them if not all.
So now it’s coming to the time that I must be searching for
that old off switch, but before I do that I want to wish you a
wonderful week. Remember Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now where’s that off switch hiding at this time??????????
There ya are ya little varmint hehehe. You really need to
find a better place to hide other than under my mouse pad.
Gotcha hehehe. See ya, CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haikus :).
10 and 22 +3 🙂

What You Heard

Words of wonder
said and seen
might not display
what we mean.
One times story
found on cue
might be found as
words untrue.
Often many
will be found
heard as wordings
slight unsound.
Yes the wording
might be said
with the meanings
slight misled.
Listen closely
to each word
and make sure
it’s what you heard.

Let Not Actions

Lingering footsteps
walk as a phase
while they remember
some other days.
Times of torment
might just linger
as a sad songs
timeless singer.
Let the then times
be as stages
such as lessons
different pages.
Don’t let lingering
things you’ve done
be tomorrows
rising sun.
Use the lessons
shadows show
as the guides
of where to go.

Many Timeframes

Minds of mishaps

might of helped
today be done.
Yet the seasons

So tomorrow
from today
use the lessons
learned a way.
Many timeframes

Weathers windows

Seamless ventures
in a way
display weathers
times at play.
I watch daily
with each change
as sometimes it’s
sometimes strange.
Weathers doorways
that we see
might be windows
history.
Listen closely

brings around.
You might learn
what seasons true

Help To Guide You

Long time journeys
from distant views
might be found
with worn out shoes.
Often journeys
that we make
are but only
times mistake.
Yet the journeys
that we’ve seen

red or green.
The meanings may
say stop or start
more times journeys
to impart.
Let the journeys

We’re Often Hiding

So many people
just sit and await
what that the future
brings into their date.
So many people
do not even try
to change the future
of their by and by.
Often some people
will just sit and stare
saying that truly
they don’t even care.
Yet deep inside them
the truth does display
that they are wanting
a much different way.
We’re often hiding
how we really feel
and not displaying
what is truly real.

A Lifetime In Store

Pictures with meanings
hang on the wall
showing the fragments
of times standing tall.
All of the memories
found in a frame
seem to enhance a
wonderful name.
Long ago portholes
time slipped into
show me the moments
that I came to you.
Miles were as minutes
dust had been freed
on a mere journey
to surely succeed.
Moments arrival
smiled then in tune
such from the sight of
the man in the moon.
We then together
held hands that day
as we made pictures
with so much to say.
Now years have passed
with pictures and more
with us together
a lifetime in store.

I Love you Judy

Life’s Tangerine

Windy days passion
blows here and there
with all the blessings
from minutes of prayer.
Some windy times
are found as a gaze
as true emotion
from wonderful days.
Windy days passion
may be seen well
as but a moment
that time did foretell.
Hands held together
in windy cuisine
creates the flavors
of life’s tangerine.
Winds so enlightened
are blown as a breeze
as all the passion
of flowers and trees.
True love will blossom
when winds are at hand
making the passion
to help life withstand.
In life’s tangerine
there’s nothing to waste
made from the blessings
that are there for a taste.

Often We’re Seeking

Often our thinking
is not in sync
with all the ways that
others will think.
Often our judging
is but a scene
with all the ways
we think things mean.
Often our minutes
are found awry
within a segment
of how we get by.
Often our journals
written in time
will show fragments
of another design.
Often our blessings
are not at all,
for we’re misreading
the time standing tall.
Often our segments
ventured ahead
are only segues
of times riverbed.
Often we’re seeking
for our own applaud
when we should be
so thankful to God.

I’m Just Awaiting

Laces of snowflakes
fall from the sky
painting the meadows
as they seem to fly.
Then all the laces
of snowflakes will land
there in the meadow
in the palm of God’s hand.
All of the snowflakes
gather around
to paint the pictures
all over the ground.
Laced up real nicely
together anew
all of the snowflakes
create a view.
Each flake uniquely
connects in a day
so to make pictures
within its display.
Now I am watching
and waiting so true
to see what else
those snowflakes will do.
Will they be blowing
and gathering around
so to make mountains
right here on the ground?
Will they be melting
and leaving their frame
of all the laces
from seasons that came?
I’m just awaiting
the moments to view
to see what visions
will surely come true.

Haiku
for Feb 20, 2010

Cling to a rhythm
and you will surely get beat.
Allow some changes.

Many will falter
with misadventures of life,
yet lessons exist.

While looking around
you might miss the good in front.
See what you have now.

Hearts that are beating
give chances for tomorrow
using God’s Own Love.

A line that is drawn
will be of greater value
if straight to the point.

The harvest of fields
will become most abundant
when taken care of.

Energy wasted
is the same as useless wants.
Focus on the needs.

Points from here to there
connect somewhere in-between.
See how you got there.

Hazards are sand traps
in the golf course’s of life.
Watch out where you putt.

Lifestyles found jagged
might be as honey to bees.
Trouble will be found.

A sewing machine
needs some thread to do its job.
Let Jesus use you.

Links are envisioned
as you and I together
that sometimes need oil.

Seen through a dream
is a life that is surreal.
Some dreams do come true.

Spending a quarter
can make someone’s life better
if spent correctly.

While looking outwards
our vision tends to ignore
what that’s found inside.

Angels from Heaven
are sent to us from Lord God
to watch over us.

Within a mirror
is sight of our emotion
that so many hide.

Essence of peaceful
is found in many blessings
we might overlook.

Time is a catchphrase
found with so many meanings
lesser or greater.

Toggled as a switch
ones that play with emotions
might discern wrongly.

Places remembered
might become the memories
to help get you by.

Snowdrifts concluded
from the winds of time that blew,
may become beauty.

Yesterdays hard times
might be the tools for today
or maybe later.

We are not perfect,
for we all will make mistakes.
Jesus is perfect.

Learned in a classroom
is sometimes just the patience
to listen and learn.

Show Your Love

Hello my friends
and
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

I hope you are having a wonderful day today. Did everybody
survive the weird weather we’ve been having LOL? I’ve been
seeing a lot of people down south posting their snow pictures
on FaceBook the last few days. Hehehe boy talk about weird.
Almost 12 inches of snow in one day for Texas is one for the
history books hehehe. It seems that all across the southern
part of the USA got snow last week :). I think the only state
that didn’t get snow was Hawaii LOL. Now that would have
been really weird huh! Oh well, the weather never stays the
same. It may at times seem that it does, but the weather is
always with its variables. Judy asked me if I could remember
ever getting that much snow in Texas and I said yes. Back
when I was a kid living in Dallas. So yes, it has happened.
Sometimes the timeframe from then to now will cause us to
forget, but the fact is, the weather has been the same in the
past. Ok so what else is there to talk about hehehe? Ain’t
much else to discuss LOL. It still looks white up here, yet
it has melted a lot. We are though expecting a few snow
showers today and the rest of the week. God only knows
when it will cease. Our temperatures ranges have been on
a much milder scale than last year and year before. That
can all change in a heartbeat though. Now for a silly bit
about our language and words. I wrote the word though
and accidentally wrote tough a minute ago. Don’t ya think
that if tough is pronounced TUFF, then though should be
pronounced THUF hehehe. Many of our words are the
very same. the only change is often in the first letter and
that will cause a metamorphosis in pronunciation. Well,
that’s enough about our goofy words LOL! Oh yea, here
is another word for ya. The spelling is the same, yet it is
pronounced two different ways with two different meanings.
Resume is pronounced ri’zoom which means to continue
and Resume is also pronounced ‘rezemey which means a
summary of your academic and work history. So OK, I’ve
enlightened you on a bit of our silliness. Now it’s onto yet
another topic hopefully more intelligent LOL. Today is
Valentines day my friends. Here is a little bit of knowledge
about this special day. Saint Valentine’s Day (commonly
shortened to Valentine’s Day) is an annual holiday held on
February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate
companions. The holiday is named after one or more early
Christian martyrs named Valentine and was established by
Pope Gelasius I in AD 496. It is traditionally a day on which
lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers,
offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known
as “valentines”). The holiday first became associated with
romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High
Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
Modern Valentine’s Day symbols include the heart-shaped
outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since
the 19th century, handwritten valentines have largely given
way to mass-produced greeting cards. Now you know little
about Valentines Day hehehe. Yet don’t just wait for this
day to arrive to show your love to someone. Do that as often
as you can, for they may be gone before you know it. God
calls us home in His timeframe. We never know when our
time on Earth will actually be the end. We can guesstimate,
but God truly is the only one who actually knows. I’ve been
told I was going to die more times than I can count by doctors,
but the truth is, it’s up to Him when our time is up. We see
many loved ones go and think why, but God has His reasons
beyond our comprehension and we must trust in His timing.
The fact is, don’t wait until a holiday, birthday, anniversary
or any other day to show your love to your loved ones. Do it
every day. Their time or yours might be up before you know
it and you may not have a second chance. God gives us time
to use. It’s up to us to use it as best that we can. I guess it’s
time for me to be hushing hehehe and beginning my search
back through all I’ve written to try and find a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title for today’s brand new poem.
So it’s off I go to that place of recollection that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. Hehehe ya thought this was gonna
end up as a book didn’t ya LOL. Ok so I found a good title.
Now let’s see if I can write a good poem using it hehehehe.
Here goes nothing…hehehe hope not though!

Show Your Love

Let the values
of your life
be as love
not just of strife.
Let your passion
be well seen
letting go
of self esteem.
Show your love
to ones you know
because they’re time
might come to go.
Give a hug
to show you care
with pure love
to daily share.
God gives blessings
we can find,
yet it takes
a change of mind.
Looking past
the then and gone
and letting love
live on and on.

Ok so there’s ya a Valentines Day poem :). I hope ya like it :).
If not, then oh well hehehe, Life goes on! I do hope you have
a wonderful day today. Of course hehehe many of you won’t

a good Valentines day hehe. It’s about time for me to be saying
goodbye, but not before I tell ya what I always do and that is, I

poems and 22 more haiku, yet I wrote one extra poem that will
up the count to 11. The poem is to Judy. I wrote her a little
Valentines poem :). Ok, with that said, I guess I need to begin
my search for that off switch, but before I do, I must wish you
a most wonderful week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now, where’s that dad gum off switch hiding at this
time LOL? Found it! It was hiding in a thatch of my hair LOL.
So have a great one. See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

Now on with the poems & haikus 🙂

Times of Perceptions

Words are confusing
when they are heard
in midst of storming
of word after word.
Sometimes the moment
might set astray
all of the meanings
that you meant to say.
If you’re the one
that’s hearing the riddle
of times of wordings
found in the middle
take a little breath
and say a little prayer
and then let Jesus
give you fresh air.
All that you’re hearing
might simply be
times of perceptions
that you disagree.

Your Brushstrokes

Landmarks are painted
as times portray
daily encounters
in any which way.
Things we remember
from certain times views
become the landmarks
made by our shoes.
They can be pretty
or they can be Hell
all of the landmarks
remembered so well.
Landmarks of rhythms
paint as we go
all of the memories
that seem to grow.
In but an instance
landmarks are found
as many moments
just going around.
Landmarks are painted
with what we do,
so make your brushstrokes
better to view.

Might Be A Fad

Lingering minutes
might be seen
as the fragments
found obscene.
Passionate moments
might fall prey
to ones meanings
lingering day.
Sometimes settings
lingering true
can be the problem
found that you view.
Let your judgments
be better seen
finding the truthful
in what’s lingering.
Know that a moment
is only that
and what that lingers
might be a fad.

Thoughts To be Wed

Looking up skyward
I search to find
things to enhance my
changing of mind.
I search for moments
so billowy white
found as the fluffy
clouds I delight.
I look for stories
in all that I view
looking up skyward
the way that I do.
I sometimes see
what seems to arouse
all of my thinking
that moments endow.
Things I imagine
in clouds overhead
seem to make moments
and thoughts to be wed.

Seeking For True Love

Romantic passion
will flower and bloom
within a heartfelt
time that’s attune.
So many lovers
are counted and made
when in the season
that romance is laid.
It is the ticking
of internal clocks
that speaks to many
as loving tick tocks.
Some seek for minutes
of seasons design
just for a moment
of times valentine.
Yet there are many
with heartfelt array
seeking for true love
on Valentines Day.

Set Life Back On Track

Lands destroyed
we daily view
as what others
tore into.
We may need
to look inside
and see truly
far and wide.
We’re the actors
in the play
on the stage of
day to day.
Often fragments
that we see
might be our own
history.
Search to seek
a different mind,
one that saves
our own man kind.
Not just white
or brown or black.
Seek to set life
back on track.

Passion of Mimes

Counting a breath
that breathes in and out
leaves you the rhythm
of all your about.
Letters as journals
breathed in as words
fly in the sky
as passionate birds.
Counting a time
of breath that you breathe
gives you a moment
to doubt or believe.
Days will encounter
breaths found in sight
counted as threshold
others delight.
Look to the looming
passionate era
and find the scenes
remembered of pleasure.
Listen for heartbeats
in counted times
and also look for
passion of mimes.

Reflective Glory

The sunshine shining
makes easy to see
sights in the daylight
all around me.
Trees with beautiful
sessions of snow
light up the season
where ever I go.
Found in the distance
are reflected sights
found as the colors
from all snowy whites.
The sunshine shining
will soon be at rest
leaving the moonlight
to then do its best.
Reflective glory
is situated scenes
found in the white snow
covering greens.

That Silent Word

Hearts are beating
loud and clear
that so many
may not hear.
Many heartbeats
won’t be heard,
for they’ve hidden
every word.
Yet if you look
inside their eyes
you can see
what actions hide.
Sometimes heartbeats
are afraid
of what messes
will be made.
Yet it’s actions
that we need
to take chances
to succeed.
Someone’s heartbeat
might be found
beating rhythms
without sound.
So those moments
that occur
seek to hear
that silent word.

Deal With Today

Long and awaited
times found ahead
might be the shadows
of times we dread.
Countless confusions
find and mislead
timeless persuasions
of what we need.
Looking glass stories
textured in phase
help us to dream of
some wonderful days.
We though will worry
about what’s ahead
leaving our dreaming
a little unfed.
So if you’re worried
about a design
that is the future
to come into time,
then take a breath
and look a bit clearer,
for your tomorrow
is not in the mirror.
Deal with today
as best that you can
and then tomorrow
will have a good plan.

Love That’s True

Love recalls
what we see
when true love
is you and me.
Time may change
our daily view,
but I’ll always
love you true.
You and I
in future days
will be found
with great arrays.
I will always
give my love
to you dear
whom I think of.
My heartbeat
with your design
will be as
one Valentine.
Timeless scenes
with you and I
will find love
we can’t deny.
All the changes
in our view
will enhance
our love that’s true.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

I love you Judy 🙂

Haiku
for Feb 13, 2010

Jumbled emotions
make up minutes of many
when they are in love.

A mind in the dust
simulates thoughts that are found
without not a clue.

Guarding your passion
might obscure you from true love.
Don’t guard it too much.

Hazards will happen
as life goes its merry way.
Prepare for problems.

Mind linking people
will maybe lose perception
when the others change.

Characters are found
as a cartoonish lifestyle
that sometimes is real.

Tapered victory
is negativities life
as many destroy.

Wind tunnel passion
blows essence to another
and sometimes makes love.

Heated arguments
destroy hope of common sense.
Take time to calm down.

In a love letter
are words filled with emotions
to ignite a flame.

Some find their slumber
as others seek forever,
but do not find rest.

Opening a can
and unleashing its insides
might be your folly.

Looking to the skies
I seek for some peacefulness
found within the clouds.

Pride can destroy you
if in too much abundance.
Don’t toot your own horn.

Harvesting minutes
might seem to take forever,
yet time goes its way.

A lions footprints
found upon the jungle floor
might lead back to you.

Snow is still painted
on the hillsides all around
saying it’s still winter.

Images of people
live in yesterdays echoes
found within today.

People without problems
only exist in untruth.
We all have problems.

Our chores are unwanted,
yet we need them to survive,
for they make us strong.

Valentines people
seeking love to make the day
might not find True Love.

Hooked on a feeling
leaves no room for another,
for others exist.

The Gambler

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Yes, it’s me again hehehe. Back once again for some more rambling
and hopefully a little sense making LOL. Well, to start off with, this
passed week has been a rather odd one weather wise. It’s been a lot
different than years passed. Yes of course it’s snowing, but it’s the
temperatures that are weird. Last year especially, we rarely had a day
with temps above zero LOL. It’s 18 F degrees right now and snowing.
Not much, but none the less snowing LOL. I’m surely not complaining
being it takes the strain off of our heating oil hehehe. Judy is still with
the symptoms of the flu (sneezing, runny nose, and petered out), but
other wise she’s doing great :). We watched the Transformers movie
The Revenge of The Fallen again last night on our TV in the bed room.
That was nice :). We both love to watch TV in bed and she most surely
loves it when I bring her dinner to her in bed as well LOL. So yes we
ate dinner in bed while watching TV hehe. I thought it might help her
to feel a little better :). We’ve got plans on watching the XMen tonight.
That will be great hehehe. We both love those type of movies, yet she
tends to like a few more action packed movies than I do. I love the
Transformers and XMen being I have tons of the cartoons from years
back of them. Judy even after watching the movies, likes to watch
a few of the Transformers and XMen cartoons with me time to time.
Hehehe hey, just because I’m 53, don’t mean I can’t watch cartoons
and enjoy them. Yep, I love the old cartoons. I guess I enjoy them
because they bring back good memories. Of course I’m talking also
about the Pink Panther and many others LOL. Transformers wasn’t
around when I was a kid. Yet I never stopped watching cartoons and
most probably won’t until I’m on my death bed hehehe. Now onto yet
another topic :). We got our oil tank filled last Monday. We had 30
gallons left in the tank, which would of lasted a few more days, but
why take a chance. Last time I thought we had enough, we ran out.
That empty mark tends to freeze and be not so accurate LOL. We
got our car inspected also last Wednesday, so it’s good to go for
yet another year hehehe. Now for the tags. It’s always something.
Life would not be life if it were not for the many troubles in life :).
Nope, I reckon it would get rather boring and we’d not appreciate
all the good that comes our way if it were not for the problems that
concur into our daily lives. Thank God for the set backs, for it’s
the set backs in life that give reason to move forward. Don’t give up!
Let the troubles be as tools to make you stronger for future days.
God never closes a door without having another for you to enter.
It’s up to us and our choices and even at times taking a few risks.
If you never give life a try, then how do you know it won’t work.
Yet sometimes you’ve gotta use some common sense to determine
whether your wanting actions are a good thing or a bad thing to do.
Let God be your guide as you use that conscience that He gave you.
Hehehe ya remember that song the Gambler by Kenny Rogers???
Ya gotta know when to hold them and when to fold them. When
to walk and when to run. When to stay and when to leave. Yep,
that’s the choices God gives us and it’s up to us to choose as best
that we can. Mistakes will happen of course. God knows that, for
that’s why He sent His Son Jesus. For forgiveness through all of our
many mistakes in life. We just must accept Him as our savior to
allow His forgiveness. So what are you gonna do???? The choice
is yours! Well, with that said, I guess it’s time for me to be taking
my little venture back through all I’ve written to see if I can find a
good word or phrase that will work for the title for today’s new poem.
So it’s away I go to that place of recollection through all that I’ve
written, to that place I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe
I found a good title. Now let’s see if I can do anything with it LOL.
Here goes…

The Gambler

Today through tomorrow
our actions might be
shining our mishaps
for others to see.
We might see options
that fear will conclude
which many choices
might wrongly choose.
Time of the gambler
might throw away
things that can surely
brighten the day.
Some will just gamble
all that they find
and end with trouble
from all of the time.
Don’t be the gambler
cheating your game,
because in the end
the truth has your name.
Gambling with your life
in a day to day path
might find you standing
with nothing but wrath.
Do you seek Heaven
while actions seek Hell?
Don’t be the gambler
with lies that compel.

Ok, so there ya go hehehe :). I hope that makes a little sense to ya.
Sometimes I will reread the poems to myself and get a hidden meaning
that I didn’t see before. God has a way of working through my poetry.
I never understood how and I don’t reckon I will ever understand how
God speaks to me through my writing, but He does and that’s the point.
I hope He speaks to you also. The many poems I’ve written through
the years have been speaking to me even back in the days that I was not
aware of it. God always gives us answers, but we will often not be in
the right state of mind to see them. Sometimes the answers are not
meant to be understood at that point and time. Just trust that God has
control and all will be well in the end if you do your very best. Life
has a few speed bumps sometimes (I think) to slow us down and make
us reevaluate the things we’re doing. Ok hehehe off of the soap box!
It’s about time for me to be searching for that old off switch, but not
before I tell you what I always tell you and that is, I wrote some more
poems and haikus hehe. As if ya didn’t know!!! Yeppers, I wrote
yet another 10 poems and 22 haiku. One poem is sort of a wintry one
to fit the season we’re having LOL. Ok, with that said, it’s time to
wish you a most wonderful week. Remember Jesus loves you and
we do too. Now where’s that dad gum off switch??????????????
Found it hiding in the Transformers DVD box making as a movie :).
Ya don’t looking nothing like a DVD you silly hehehehehehehehe.
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haikus ;).
10 and 22 hehehe 🙂 Peace

Your Moments View

Long persuasions
found in time
might determine
nows design.
Moments counted
may be found
daily truly
not so sound.
Long decisions
all we know
may describe our
moments woe.
Times persuasions
might discern
how through trouble
we will learn.
Painted hallways
from each step
might show clearly
how we’ve kept.
So if you see
times persuasions
search for reasons
found occasions.
They might be
encircled true
hidden from
your moments view.

Lose The Recalled

Pictured memories
might portray
times discounted
gone away.
Now’s the vision
that is viewed
maybe sometimes
misconstrued.
Happy segments
may be found
in the shadows
going round.
Looking seeing
picture frames
doesn’t always
recall names.
Let the pictures

Lose the recalled

To Walk And Run

Lists on a journey
many will make
sometimes while paving
a big mistake.
Listing their wanna
in distant to do
might become deathly
so truly for you.
Making a list
is not all that bad,
but do not let it
to be all you’ve had.
Sometimes swaying
from lists you’ve made
might make best
for future that’s laid.
Yet making lists
might be good to do,
for it gives guidelines
to help you on through.
Change the words
as they’re needed done

Nothing To Gain

Leaning on thresholds
might make the view
when you’re not ready
to sort of walk through.
Look to the moments
and see where you are
while you determine
better by far.
Do not just lean there
at thresholds desire,
for you might find then
a burning hot fire.
Let Jesus guide you
through thresholds you see
and let Him pattern
what is then to be.
Don’t be found leaning
too hard so to say
on doors of wanna
to some other day.
Sometimes thresholds
might be insane
leaving you standing
with nothing to gain.

Let In Forgiveness

Try to appease
what pain has acquired
and try to pattern
much better desired.
Moments will come in
when anger will drive,
yet it’s forgiveness
that keeps us alive.
We need to let all
the anger we’ve seen
to better display
what truly we mean.
Sometimes our wording
and sometimes our face
might display something
that is not in place.
Let in forgiveness
when anger is found
and let Lord Jesus
to turn it around.
Forgiving spirits
can change how we view
as we together
then start as anew.

Our Daily Design

In but a second

snowflakes to flowers
for us to discern.
Gathered as heartbeats

with April to June.
In but a fraction
of time that we see
seasons will prosper
through our history.
Letters of grass blades
written and seen
may show beginnings

Yet now the white snow
paints over hills
seen in the distance

Links

Links to tomorrow
are found in today
as all the journeys
in every which way.
Links may be found as
needing some grease
so we must pedal
much harder for peace.
Links to tomorrow
might seem up hill
while now is standing
with times bitter pill.
Links can be gathered
together to grow
if we will pedal
with love all aglow.
Yes surely hard times
will come our way
but we can make it
with Jesus today.
Links to tomorrow
with Him as our guide
can become better
if He lives inside.

Things In Our Head

Learning is sometimes
so hard to do
when all the lessons
affect me and you.
So often learning
will be found insane
when we see nothing
as truly the gain.
Yet often lessons
of times done and said
might better display
in years far ahead.
So if you’re seeing
what you can’t discern,
maybe the moment
is future to learn.
Found in memories
counted ahead
we might be learning
the things in our head.

Wintertime’s Porthole

Wintertime’s patience
rattles and hums
within its hurry
of symphony drums.
Wintertime has no
time that is seen
such as the patience
that awaits spring.
Minutes time wintertime
might blow a gale
with snow a falling
as ice that’s set sail.
Wintertime’s porthole
may seem to play
as it’s with patience
with white unto gray.
Gray clouds concluding
wintertime’s force
rides in the snowflakes
bitter colds horse.
Wintertime’s patience
might seem nowhere,
but truly it has
answers to prayer.
Blessings as snowfall
as valleys of white

Numbers

Numbers are figures
which many surmount
leaving their journey
with too much to count.
Numbers as doorways
are sometimes withheld
as what that truly
is surely impelled.
So often numbers
will make us to be
lesser of truly
and liars to see.
Don’t let the numbers
to distinguish you.
Take in the moment
and do what is true.
Numbers can vanquish
the truth to the end
so let the pages
to show a true friend.
Change what that’s counted
to what that is good
and you will find then
what that you should.

Haiku
for Feb 6, 2010

In wintertime’s dreams
are the flavors of passion
seen as pure white snow.

Books that are harnessed
as the words of black and white
can replay stories.

Answers to questions
are benefactors of time
as we move along.

Seen in a mirror
are but only reflections
of what that is real.

Sailors in the sea
count the knots of emotions
found within their speed.

While glancing ahead
the past might surprise your view
coming from behind.

Morning will prosper
as shadows of dewdrops grow
upon the minutes scene.

Sweet candied essence
is the taste of our childhood
remembered so well.

And is an add on
to make ones think of some more,
when there may be none.

While standing in rain
you might just gather raindrops
that fall from your brow.

If you wait too much,
your patience might run amuck
and leave you awry.

When we’re in worry
we might find many gray hairs
that may look like us.

Have to is trouble
when it takes over logic
and leaves you with none.

Cans are the makers,
but the can nots will destroy
what that can be done.

The Jones will vary
and they can’t be kept up with,
so don’t even try.

Many will seek for peace,
yet in the wrong directions
and end up with war.

Look up to the skies
while the day moves on ahead.
You might catch a cloud.

Hear the storms thunder
as it does drum rolls of time
many miles away.

Minutes mark moments
that the seconds have counted
leading unto now.

Life is a journey
with its many starts and stops
filled with surprises.

Lounging by a pool
makes way for a few splashes
so don’t be surprised.

Spring is awaiting
its special time to prosper
with flowers and trees.
