Don’t Be Discouraged

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have ya been? I’m still a bit under the weather.
The weather conditions up here keep bouncing back
and forth. I know it’s been tons worse down south of
us as well as west of us hehehe. Oh well, nothing I can
do about the weather, so onwards with the journal 🙂
Right now it’s around 20F degrees. Not bad for this
time of year. I went out this morning to start up the car
and get it deiced and the snow just fell off of it hehehe,
so there wasn’t much work to do other than brush it
off. Judy told me that yesterday they were busy with
snowmobiler’s. There’s a snodeo going on up here LOL.
Not a rodeo. A snodeo which includes snowmobiles and
riding contest. They seem to be gathering at the motel
which is connected to the Elm Tree North hehehehe.
Judy said they will be there again today, but they may
be more busy riding today than eating 🙂 We shall see!
In any case, I hope her day goes well. She seems to
be over the flu finally, but it took a lot out of both of
us, plus it cut back on our funds being she hasn’t got
paid sick leave from the diner. We’ll survive! It just
means my trip to Texas is not going to happen. Maybe
another day. Hey, that doesn’t mean you can’t come
and visit us LOL. Many of you are in better condition
for travel than we are. It don’t matter, I guess I’m
just gonna have to get used to the fact that life doesn’t
always go the way I want it to 🙂 Thank God for that
at times hehehe, being my old wanna can most surely
get me into trouble if God didn’t ever so often step in
and say uhuh/nope. I went out walking in the snow
last night for a little exercise as well as to go out and
check the mail hehehe. Walking in the snow is good
therapy. It makes me have to work harder to walk,
but it also wears me out really fast hehehe. I also laid
down in the snow for a brief to make an icepack on
my legs in hopes of easing the pain, but it only worked
for a brief, so I ended up afterwards in the shower
doing just the opposite than cold. Some nice hot water
beating on my legs. Yet that also was a temporary
fix LOL. Oh well, at least it worked for a little bit 🙂
Life goes on hehehe. I would take some pictures, of
outside, but it looks pretty much the same as it did
last week hehehe. White is white! I think we have
a ghost in our house that loves to play. He spent
a lot of time in the past ringing our doorbell that
otherwise would not work LOL. I had to finally
just unplug the bugger. Then it seems he decided
to knock on the door to get my attention hehehe.
Judy thought I was making it up until I caught it
on recording. Oh well, if that’s all he want’s to
do, then have fun hehe. It looks like it’s clouding
up a bit outside. It might snow a little more this
evening. I love to watch it snow. It is so beautiful.
God does the most awesome things. Making rain
drops turn white and paint the Earth with snow.
God can do things far beyond our understanding.
He will often allow a gloomy day so to enhance the
brighter days of past and future. We would get
so caught up into the drudgery of redundancy of
life if it always remained the same. That’s why
bad days are so important. To enhance the good.
If today you are having a bad day, then think of
a good time you remember and thank God for
that moment. Also remember that things change
along with time. Try and find the blessings in
the moments. Yet don’t be discouraged if you
cannot find them, because you might not be at
the right place in time to understand. Let God’s
Will be done. I guess it’s about time for me to
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 for today’s
brand new poem. So, it’s away I go to that lil
place that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I do believe I found a good title. Now let’s see
if I can do anything at all with it hehehehehehe.
Here goes nothing, yet I hope not!!!! 🙂

Don’t Be Discouraged

Don’t let the bad times
leave you despaired
thinking that no one
ever has cared.
Don’t be discouraged
with now and today.
Take a deep breath now
and kneel and pray.
Let all the bad times
roll from your face
and let Lord Jesus
give you His grace.
Look past the moments
that troubles perceive
and see the blessings
that you can receive.
Don’t let the sad times
tear you apart.
Let Jesus come in
and fill your heart.

I hope you enjoyed that as well as my rambling hehehe.
Hopefully I didn’t bore you to severely LOL! I might have
to finish this soon. My eye is really burning right now and
making it hard to see if not harder hehehe. I guess I do
need to get this finished before Judy gets home from work,
so it’s time to tell ya what I tell ya every week and that is,
I wrote some more poems. Hehehe I accidentally wrote 11
poems this time instead of 10 LOL. So sue me 🙂 5 of the
poems are wintry Christmassy style poems. Also I wrote
some more haiku, but I did the same with them hehehehe.
I accidentally wrote 26 instead of 22 hehe. I didn’t write
the haiku until around 4 o’clock this morning. I didn’t
feel much like writing them yesterday after I finished all
of the poems. I surely hope you enjoy some of the poems
and haiku. Now it’s time for me to be searching for that
old off switch, but not before I wish you a most blessed &
joyous week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now to find that confounded of switch hehe. Found it out
in the snow looking around wondering where I went LOL!
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10+1 and 22+4 hehehehehehe:)

Winters Dreams

Signs of times
in scenic scenes
now have views
of winters dreams.
Found snow white
from here to there
winters dreams
are everywhere.
Far and wide
with sights to see
winters dreams
make history.
Paved with snow
so fluffy and white
winters dreams
are day and night.
Moments scenes
in great astound,
winters dreams
fall all around.

With A Trace

The dark of night
in winters flight
shows the sight
upon the ground.
Found in place
of springtime’s grace
is the face
now all around.
Scenes snow white
the times ignite
with winters might
of sight and sound.
A moments taste
of snow white grace
is Heavens lace
from town to town.
The dawn of light
will bring the sight
of snows delight
to then be found.
With a trace
of winters face
as seasons taste
to then astound.

Mornings Light

Now I find
my thinking found
with the sights
of all around.
Scenes so pure
as whitish glaze
now ignite
my wildest gaze.
Snowy scenes
from here to there
seem to be
so debonair.
Dancing surely
as snowflakes
now I find
that’s all it takes.
In my mind
I dance with them
with the sound
of joyful hymn.
Songs are found
within my sight
with the snow
in mornings light.

All The Blessings

Given chances
of desires
fill the pages
up with fires.
All the blessings
here and there
given chances
find a prayer.
Sights unseen
of hidden view
may not hide
what’s really true.
All the moments
found in place
may not be
the best embrace.
All the blessings
given free
might show up
in history.

Daily Fractions

Letters written
time agin
may discern
where you’ve been.
Maybe short
and maybe long
letters written
can be strong.
So think clearly
what you write
as you travel
day and night.
Words are written
in your view
as what others
see you do.
Letters written
may be seen
as a nightmare
not a dream.
Make your letters
in your actions
be of better
daily fractions.

Values

Many set values
on all their things
as so much greater
than God’s greatest scenes.
God creates wonders
that none can compare
filled up with beauty
and given to share.
So many forget
God’s greatest designs
as they recall their
moments of times.
Many lose sight of
their own flesh and blood
when they allow
times stuck in the mud.
So many values
get lost on the way
through their own journey
of their day to day.
Let not your values
to become found
only material
in all there around.

A Snowman’s Birth

Onwards snowflakes
blow and land
and become as
sights so grand.
Bring your essence
to be found
here today now
on the ground.
Now sweet snowflakes
tell your rhyme
of this winters
great design.
Send your glory
down to Earth
and give hope
for a snowman’s birth.
See the children
far and wide
building snowmen
then outside.
So sweet snowflakes
land in place
so to make a
snowman’s face.

What’s In Sight

Days of wonder
come to be
sometimes as
a small degree.
Yet those small times
counted true
might of been
the best to do.
Better moments
sort of seen
might be as
a captains dream.
Sailing oceans
far and wide
days of wonder
coincide.
In the oceans
sight of blue
there might be
a wondrous view.
Yet the vision
that you find
might be just
within your mind.
Days of wonder
can be found
if we’ll look now
all around.
In the blue skies
overhead
there can be
a riverbed.
Found in white clouds
here and there
you might find
a sight to share.
Days of wonder
will ignite
if we search through
what’s in sight.

How Ones See You

Lengthy segments
through the ages
might be seen as
ruthless stages.
Many people
only see
what they truly
want to be.
Sometimes segments
of our stories
can become as
harmful quarries.
Using only
timeless care
to but only
do or dare.
Let your segments
now be found
that of goodness
true and sound.
Don’t let segments
become views

just abuse.

A Simple Wording

Words from a story
written and said
can become slumber
found in our head.
Often it’s boredom
things that we’ve heard
things that we’ve thought as
a little absurd.
Words from a story
might need understood
so to enlighten
the way that they should.
Words have a way of
just leading astray
ones in a sort of
boring array.
A simple wording
from something you said
might become better
if it’s not misread.

Haiku
for Jan 30, 2011

Late night in the snow
the reflection of the stars
glistens real brightly.

Mornings arrival
brings snowflakes of true passion
displayed as pure white.

Lessons are given
through the turnstiles of our lives
as goodness and bad.

Heaven waits with peace
with the seconds that pass by
that seem as hours.

Looking for answers
could guarantee your demise
if you’re not ready.

Many times mood swings
are the displayed emotions
of internal thoughts.

Winters points of time
paint the pictures of snowflakes
as valleys of white.

Doing the right thing
might include ceasing moments
that time does not need.

Leading others lives
can be done by your actions,
so make sure they’re good.

Places remembered
might be better viewed in time
than when encountered.

Scenes might encompass
all the turnstiles of troubles
that we remember.

An essence of thought
can make or break a moment
with segments of time.

Christmas memories
come as snowflakes paint the ground
a soft fluffy white.

Finding blessings
is done by doing God’s Will
and not just our own.

Look outside the box
when the moments seem blurry.
See them with new eyes.

White snowy footprints
make a trail from thereunto
that’s soon covered up.

Nighttime brings shadows
of the things we see daily
with their own viewpoints.

Images of people
can be destroyed in minutes
if not seen human.

Oceans of blessings
make the waves of existence
that make up our lives.

Tomorrows troubles
can be wrongfully displayed
in today’s visions.

Making a footprint
needs a mere step at a time
in some direction.

Glazing a donut
displays someone’s perception
of their own lifestyle.

Sometimes in winter
a mere fraction of snowfall
is all many need.

Winter flowers bloom
as the coldness dissipates
and springtime arrives.

Pansies will survive
the white snows of wintertime
and even blossom.

A minute of time
can be discerned as trouble
if it’s viewed wrongly.

God’s In Control

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well I’m getting a real early start on this mess today,
being I’ve gotta go out in a bit and dig our car out of
the snow so Judy can go to work. Friday she came
home sick again and took off Saturday due to it, but
it looks like she may be over the mess FINALLY :),
but time will tell. Anyways, if she is going to work in
the morning, the car needs to be able to move LOL.
Yep, we got a tad of snow Thursday. Not a whole
lot, but just enough to bury our car. We spent most
of Saturday laying up in bed together watching TV
as well as Friday evening when she got home. I did
my best to pamper her, but then I do that anyways,
so not much of a change hehehe. I called and talked
to my good buddy Mark an hour or so ago. Him and
his wife stay up late on Saturdays. LOL they said it
was to try and get the kids to go to bed, but me thinks
that it may have just been the weekend excitement 🙂
In any sense we talked for a long while about all our
childhood days. We grew up together in Dallas TX.
When my family moved us away to Wills Point, he
and I did a lot of visiting back and forth up until
around 1980. Then we both sort of lost track of
one another due to my divorce and moving away.
Anyway, I found him on FaceBook last year and
we’ve been revisiting our childhood mischief hehe.
Only talking hehehe, ain’t no way I’d ever repeat
all that again even if I could. LOL I would love to
be able to relive the good times, but bypass the
troubles and all, but that ain’t possible, so enjoy
the memories we do. Right now my asthma is
giving me a hard time. I went out a few minutes
ago to shovel snow, but I began wheezing for a
breath as my asthmas kicked in. My respirator
usually takes a few moments to start working.
I’m already breathing more calmly 🙂 Had this
mess all my life. Nothing new LOL! Now onto
yet another topic. Firstly I think I’ll go out and
give the shoveling a gung ho. Be back in a few!
I’m back with an hour to spare hehehe. It’s now
4:11 AM and Judy gets up around 5 AM hehehe.
If I finish this real quickly I might even be able
to lay down with her for a couple of minutes :),
but my hair is wet right now, being it was froze
and I had to run some water over it to thaw it
out. Yes my beard was frozen as well being it’s
minus 15 degrees Fahrenheit right now brrrr.
My nose is thawing and beginning to run hehe.
Yep that thing even froze LOL. In any sense
I got the car dug out and made a path down
the driveway to where our landlord stopped
so she can drive easily out. I’ll have to start
it up a few minutes before she leaves so that
the heater will thaw the windows. I sprayed
some deicer on them, but it didn’t do much but
help me free up the windshield wipers hehehe.
The way things are going it looks as though
we may not make it to Texas being Judy has
missed a lot of work without pay and we’ve
had a lot of bills to crop up as well as all the
problems with our car in Christmas and my
PC being repaired. If God sees fit for us to
make it to Texas, I’m sure He will give us
the means to do so, but insurance, tags and
inspection on the car comes up the first of
March as well as we are needing to buy some
more heating oil being we’re down to about
a quarter of a tank. Keep us in your prayers,
being I really miss all my friends and family.
Hey, the road does go both ways ya know 🙂
We definitely would welcome some company.
Mom said that her and my sister might make
it up here this summer. Surely time will tell.
God has a way of putting the brakes on if He
sees there might be a problem and I do worry
about my old car making it to Texas and back
safely. God’s in control. I find sometimes that
when I am postponed for a moment that it is
preventing destruction of another. My mom
and me were talking about that yesterday.
Well I guess I’ve rambled enough and need to
begin my search 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. I believe I stumbled upon one not to far
back hehehe. Here goes. Hope it works 🙂

God’s In Control

Times will tell
from timeless toll
what’s so well
God’s in control.
Brakes are found
when it’s not right
on somedays
within our sight.
God’s in control
each leap and bound
to provide tools
each time around.
He allows troubles
things to learn
so to teach
which bridges to burn.
See now how truly
God’s in control
as He gives blessings
to save someone’s soul.

Ok so it might not be one of my greatest hehehehe.
I tried LOL. Give me a break, I just got over an
asthma attack. I’m fine now yet still not breathing
so well, but it will get better the more I relax. Well
I hope you enjoyed my rambling as well the poem or
maybe hehehe just the rambling or the poem. One
or the other or both LOL. It’s time for me to tell ya
what I tell ya every week and that is I wrote some
more poems and haiku. Yep 10 more poems with
3 of them wintry Christmassy styles and yes I wrote
22 more haiku for all my haiku lovers out there 🙂
So it’s about time for me to be searching for that
old off switch, but not before I wish you a most
wonderful week. Remember, Jesus loves you and
we do too. Now to find that off switch. Hehehehe
found it in the snow. Had to thaw it out hehehehe.
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. I’ll send this after Judy is headed off to work.
I’m gonna go and lay down with her for a few minute
right now….. PEACE and OUT 🙂
P.S. agin hehe. My old back went out and I had to
let it ease up before coming in here to do my editing
on this mess, so sending it a bit later than I wrote it.

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

Winds of Winter

Winds of winter
blow on through
rearranging
thereunto.
All the winds
of winter’s scenes
cover up the
grass once green.
Windy moments
find a way
to encompass
every day.
Scenes of beauty
from the winds
make the pictures
without ends.
Winter winds
might seem real cold
but they give
much to behold.
Fluffy snowflakes
large and small
winter winds
will blow them all.
While creating
thereunto
winds of winter
make the view.

Found As Echoes

Found as echoes
sometime seems
as some nightmares
maybe dreams.
Maybe future,
maybe past
many echoes
surely cast.
Living lessons
far and wide
are as echoes
time applied.
It’s the moments
said and done
that determines
lost and won.
If you learned from
then that day
the echoes might just
go away.

Our Wildest Dreams

Sights of beauty
will unfold
if we look at
stories told.
Word by word
the sights display
here and now
with day to day.
Lines on places
paint a frame
where they go
or whence they came.
Look beyond
the lines you see
and then see
their history.
Find within
the stories told
memories
to then behold.
Search the sights
of here to there
and then see
what none compare.
Flight of stairs
of many scenes
can become
our wildest dreams.

Use Good Judgment

Lessons become

when they are found
in you and me.
God gives choices
each to choose
which to win
or which to lose.
Time can become
a frame impaired

One who cared.
Let Lord Jesus
shine within
time to time
and now agin.
Use good judgment

Storms Can Be

Storms may seem
to be no good,
but they do
what things they should.
Signs of times
can seem to be
as no good
for you and me,
but sometimes
are needed done
on some morns
and setting sun.
Storms can be
a tasted treat
flavored with
real good to eat.
Seen from eyes
of scenic times
storms can make
some great designs

Peace

Peace is a moment
that’s found within time
with many seeking
that moments design.
Yet many people
don’t know not a way
how they are part of
the wrongful display.
Many times people
will think they are right
with their illusion
in poor sighted light.
Peace is a blessing
that we need believe
then use God’s power
to surely perceive.
Look to your heartbeat
and find how to be.
Peace is a moment
that we need to see.

Christmas Thoughts

Found as segments
in a field
is snow piled up
not concealed.
Winter dreams
in scenic ways
are the segments
in the days.
Found as snowflakes
one by one
laid about
beneath the sun.
Christmas thoughts
I then delight
as it turns to
dark of night.
Snow filled moments
young and old
are the stories
times foretold.
Found as segments
in the scene
are the makings
of a dream.
Christmas morsels
snowy white
help to make
what I delight.
Each snowflake
that’s laid in place
puts a smile
upon my face.
Christmas dreams
that none compare

most everywhere.

God Gives Chances

In the mornings

I see things
that can be done.
Surely hopeful
now in time
can make greater
yours and mine.
Every morning
gives us hope
time beyond
our greatest scope.
God gives chances
found each day
to help many
find away.
Yet it takes some
changed desires
to put out
the wrongful fires.
Let the flames
of Jesus burn
as the lessons
you should learn.

Beginnings

Beginnings find
a place to be

a slight degree.
It is sometimes
painted best
as beginnings
daily test.
Often minutes
seem to pass
leaving only
lower class,
yet sometimes
the minutes prove
they are needed
win or lose.
Let beginnings
find a place
with a smile
upon your face,
then just maybe
they will grow
to what’s real
to then bestow.

White formations
here and there
display surely
everywhere.

Scenes profoundly
seem to gleam
as my wildest

Haiku
for Jan 22, 2011

While looking upwards
you might miss what’s below you.
Be aware of time.

Lines on someone’s face
might display a great story
that’s written within.

Bluebonnets flourish
in a field that’s full of grass
and create pictures.

Making snow angels
requires lying on the ground
and spreading your arms.

Ones might be confused
with the thoughts of tomorrow
through nows illusions.

Pointless is anger
if it creates no goodness.
Use it for better.

A field full of snow
makes the distance much brighter
within the sunlight.

The gears of the brain
can sometimes slip a little
when sleep is ignored.

A daffodil grows
as sunshine gleams overhead
fueling its passion.

Wintertime’s fragrance
comes as valleys of snowfall
and coolness of breeze.

Beyond tomorrow
comes the chances yet to see
due to today’s sights.

A letter from old
could display how that we’ve changed
as time has moved on.

The right here and now
can become devastating
if we lose focus.

Our true lots in life
might differ from how we view.
You might need to change.

Pure aggravation
might come into the picture
if out of pocket.

Some find tomorrow
as life that cannot be found
unless it’s their way.

A rose in winter
finds no way it can blossom,
so it waits for spring.

The horror of time
comes in different pictures
which many misread.

Having a flower
and letting it to blossom
will give more beauty.

Newness of mornings
brings chances beyond the night
for great things to see.

Parts of a snowflake
might seem as they are alike,
but unique they are.

Tomorrows answer
might be found in now today
as doing your best.

All You Have

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Yes, it’s little old me again. I’m on Judy’s old PC.
Judy noticed a sign in front of our internet server that
said We Fix Computers. So I figured rather than risk
it being damaged in the transaction to Texas, I would
give them a chance. I hope they don’t mess it up. If
they do, I will most surely send it to Texas to have it
fixed. Judy’s old PC is slow and every program on it
was out of date. I’ve spent tons of hours trying to get
it up to speed or at least as fast as I can get it to go.
It’s not much good other than for email. It freezes
up when I try to run most of my other programs.
Oh well, maybe Pioneer will have my PC fixed this
week soon. It has all of my major programs on it,
plus I have everything memorized where they are.
Judy has this set up the way she wanted it years ago.
The last time this thing was used was back in 2006.
LOL, yep all of the windows programs as well as
the antivirus programs were well out of date. I had
a lot of updating to do. Still needs a little LOL, but
for now it’s fine for email, not much else. Yet it did
freeze up on me a bit ago when I was retrieving email
I had to literally turn the PC off manually and turn
it back on. That’s life hehehe. I hope and pray that
it doesn’t freeze up on me while I am writing to you.
If it does, it might tick me off a tad LOL. OK so
it’s time to seek another topic. The weather up this
way has not been too awful. It’s been cold, but not
too bad. It snowed a little last night. I didn’t look
outside last night so I was unaware. Judy had a
weather program on here, but it was also out of
date and not working hehehe. It would only give
me Greenville Texas weather for some darn reason
and not even the correct weather for there LOL.
Hehehe I found the newer version on my external
hard drive, and installed it. It at least now shows
me Houlton Maine weather. Well, not much else
going on. Judy and I have still been tending with
the old flu bug off and on. I think we’re almost
over it. Judy had to come home early again sick
Friday. She seems to be over the mess finally 🙂
If this computer freezes up on me after I get this
mess almost finished, I’m going to be one upset
dude hehehe. I sure hope they get my PC fixed
before next week and fixed right. I’m not sure
how much more of this slow thing I can handle.
I know hehehe off of that topic. The sun is out
and shining bright for the moment, but the clouds
are quickly hiding it, thank God hehehehehehe.
I can’t look outside with out sunglasses on when
the sun is shining. It reflects off of the snow and
will blind ya LOL otherwise. Hehehe I’m having
to update the spell check in her Outlook Express.
It’s not recognizing words and I having to add
them hehehe. Big time fun 🙂 hehehe. I do thank
God that this computer still worked. If it hadn’t
of, I would not of been able to write. The lap top
computer is needing a lot of work. It makes this
thing look like a speed demon hehehehe. I’m sure
it will all come out in the wash. Judy and I stayed
up late last night watching our TV programs LOL.
Made it hard for her to get up this morning hehe.
Our little car is still puttering along. It hasn’t had
anymore major malfunctions in the last few days.
Thank God for that. We’re having enough trouble
with finances without car troubles. God takes good
care us whether we’re aware of it or not. Often
we don’t see the good things until they’ve passed us
by. Many times our blessings are hidden in the
retrospect of yesterday. Today might seem as a
gloomy scene, but it actually enhances the days of
joy ahead. We often don’t appreciate things until
they are gone, such as our health and friends, but
when they are gone we find ourselves only wanting
them back. Can you remember filling ecstatic when
you got over the flu. You felt so great. Then as time
moves on you fall back into that place of Weary Ville
where you’ve forgotten how bad it could be. Let God
show you your blessings through prayer and learn
to look at all you have, not all you don’t have. You
might find that you have a lot more than you ever
knew. Do you have 2 legs? Many have none. Do
you have 2 arms? Many have none. Can you speak?
Many cannot. Can you hear? Many cannot. Find
all the blessings that you have and be happy. Now
I guess it’s time for me to begin my little venture
back through my recollection of all 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 off I go to that place of my recollection that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I may have
found a good title. Now let’s see if I can do anything
with it hehehehe. Here goes!!!!

All You Have

What you want
might be far fetched
written in
a day bad sketched.
What you need
might be more clear
seen from times
of yesteryear.
All you have
might just be found
as God’s blessings
all around.
Listen to
a tweeting bird
a sound that many
haven’t heard.
All you have
might be the best
given as the
days you’re blessed.
Let not problems
destroy you.
Learn to see
a different view.

Ok so there ya go. Hehehe, I spend more time just
writing to myself. Heck I’m not perfect. We all need
to be reminded time to time to appreciate all that we
have. It’s easy to get caught up into poor me when
things are going wrong. Life is life and there will be
struggles. Learn from them. Ok just in case Judy
comes home early again today, I guess I need to be
finding that old off switch, but not before I tell ya
what I tell ya every week and that is, I wrote some
more poems and yes some more haiku. 10 poems
and 22 haiku. Three of the poems are Christmassy
/wintry styles. I hope you like a few of them. Ok
so now it’s time for me to bid you farewell until next
week. Remember Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now to find that confounded off switch. Hehehe
I found it hiding under the electric blanket just a
shivering LOL. See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Things We’ve Done

Timeless sorrow
finds a way
sometimes coming
day to day.
Times remembered
said and done
under moments
rising sun.
Ventures conquered
and surmised
find there ways of
seeming sized.
Use those doorways
found in time
to make better
days design,
Leave those timeless
days of sorrow
as the lessons
for tomorrow.
Things we’ve done
by mere mistake
let them be as
lessons make.

Your Judgment

Many falter
with their thought
thinking what that
they should not.
Living blunders
come to be
when we falter
and don’t see.
Let your eyesight
see more clear
than you did
one yesteryear.
Learn what problems
you brought true
doing daily
all by you.
Often it’s our
own desires
that are planting
faltered fires.
Let your judgment
be well found
as you learn
each time around.

The Christmas Dream

Many find
their hearts alone
with the thoughts
that they had known.
Scenes of Christmas
seem askew
when they’re seeking
from their view.
Many search
for past beginnings
as they miss
their daily winnings.
Christmas thoughts
are found inside
good we’ve had
with God applied.
Use your thinking
now today
to make better
Christmas way.
Leave those heartaches
that you’ve seen
and look for the
Christmas dream.

Night Design

In the nightlight
I can see
my own shadow
follow me.
Linking to my
steps in time
just like a mere
nighttime rhyme.
Rhythms found
in dark of night
seem to be
within my sight.
Moonlight shadows
seem to glow
in the nightlight
to and fro.
There’s now sound
within the view
of the shadows
thereunto.
They just follow
me in time
in their own style
night design.

Fractions

Little fractions
of desire
can become a
raging fire.
Stoked upon
our moments lust
can make fractions
to combust.
Mornings follow
days we see
with our choices
days degree.
Little fractions
can become
brighter than
the searing sun.
So don’t let the
fractions found
be the guiding
force around.
Let your choices
be as seen
as a fractions
better theme.
Don’t let hurry
guide you through
to a time
a bit askew.
Let God guide you
now today
as you take the
time to pray.

What You Write

Letters written
in a hurry
might become
a moments worry.
Think it over
with each word
or you might then
write absurd.
Yet let wording
come to be
if you’re in a
good degree.
Let not problems
points or place
become letters
of disgrace.
Use good judgment
what you write
and you might just
get it right.

Moments Fury

Moments fury
can destroy
timeless journeys
that deploy.
Let your anger
find some peace
with a little
God release.
Minutes flourish
from a view
given from a
time or two.
Let not turmoil
guide your ways
through the coming
future days.
Moments linger
often viewed
sometimes with them
misconstrued.
Let that fury
now and then
become tools
of where and when.

Light The Path

Here is found
with many scenes
some of whites
and some of greens.
Some see snow
from here to there
and some have
green everywhere.
Some have pictures
of their snow
while some others
just don’t know.
Many see their
days and weeks
as just fractions
life completes.
Many find
their times conclusions
made up with
their own illusions.
Don’t let sadness
take away
all the goodness
day to day.
Often it’s our
own discretion
that which makes
the best impression.
Often our own
lighted path
becomes torments
aftermath.
So let candles
smiles of phase
light the path
for better days.

Impressions

Winters started
with the scenes
white snow over
all the greens.
Painted flavors
day and night
are with colors
of snow white.
In the distance
I can see
all the snow
on every tree.
Glistening brightly
with the day
some snow blinding
in a way.
All the scenes
of far and wide
leave impressions
snow applied.
Signified
each time around
with God’s blessings
on the ground.

Looking Backwards

Looking backwards
to the times
I can see the
best designs.
Painted with those
Christmassy
in the times
from history.
Looking backwards
I recall
times I found
a bouncing ball
and a little
BB gun
there in time
one setting sun.
Looking backwards
I now know
I had good times
all aglow.
Now today
I find I’ve found
new beginnings
Christmas bound.
Found with love
of blessings true
I see Christmas
all anew.
Filled with joy
from now and then
as I recall
where I’ve been.

Haiku
for Jan 15, 2011

Jumping too quickly
could land you in a pothole
filled up with trouble.

Looking at problems
could make them seem much larger
if not seen clearly.

Illusions in time
are made up of emotions
with misguided thought.

A flowers answer
might be in phrase of blossoms
to show its true joy.

Onlooking branches
sway back and forth in the breeze
as others lose leaves.

Moments of the day
paint their words in the sunrise
as heartbeats of time.

Seen as a shadow
the essence of yesterday
shows us its design.

Dewdrops of morning
water the flowers and the trees
as well as the grass.

Tomorrows ventures
are not yet set in concrete.
Things can surely change.

The west and the east
connect the north and the south
creating our world.

Some have no conscience
or at least they hide it well.
They’ve chosen their path.

Surmounting issues
could leave you in exhaustion.
Take some time to rest.

Abrupt beginnings
can end up with destruction
if not thought out well.

Scenes from Christmastime
are as magic in windows
lit up after dark.

Truth is the answer
to the problems of liars.
Truth will set you free.

While many just watch
there are others that suffer
the rubbernecks view.

Through a mere peephole
ones might see what’s really true
behind the closed doors.

A dummy’s teaching
can mislead ones through troubles
and leave them with more.

While searching for joy
you might just find some sadness.
Continue searching.

Left in the sunlight
a flower will bloom greatly
if it is watered.

Passionate people
will show us their true feelings
whether good or bad.

Lengthy discussions
can surely bore ones to sleep
if they are stupid.

The Rearview Mirror

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Yes, I’m back with a little more rambling, but not
too awful much being I am a tad under the weather.
Judy has also been under the weather a bit. She had
to come home early from work early Friday because
of being sick and ended up staying home Saturday
as well. We both stayed bed ridden for most of the
time. In other words, I did not write any poetry this
week, but no problem LOL. I’ll share what I wrote
and shared a few years ago on this same exact day.
Of course back then I wrote the poems all week long
and usually ended up with more than 10. Anyways,
I’ll tell ya all about that in the later half of this mess.
It’s been snowing off and on up this way. Yep, it’s
all nice and white outside. It looks so pretty as long
as the sun ain’t reflecting off of it hehehehe. I was
looking at my weather program and it looks like
Texas and a few other southern states might get a
bit of that old white stuff today as well. Heck they
may be getting it at this moment. It’s looking like
the snow is being spread around this year hehehe.
Well what else is there to talk about. I had to take
my asthma medicine a minute ago. Those darned
attacks are painful. Oh well, life goes on hehehe.
Oh yea, I shut my PC down early last week and
almost couldn’t get it started up again. I checked
all the settings in the Bios, but it all seems to be
correct which leads me to believe that my power
supply that starts it is going out. Yep, I will most
surely have to send it to my friends in Greenville
a bit early being I want them to move all my info
to a larger hard drive. This one is just about full,
plus I reckon it is just a matter of time before it
wears out as well. That’s the problem with most
electronic and mechanical parts. They wear out.
Looks like Judy hasn’t recovered fully. She just
came home from work early again. I hope this
mess moves on soon. Both of us are tired of it.
She brought me home a new asthma respirator.
Hehehehe my old one died. Anyways, not much
has gone on in the Pearce’s household this past
week. We’ve spent a lot of time laid up in bed or
should I say she has. I spend more time running
back and forth to ye old bathroom LOL. We’ve
been watching cartoons a lot hehehe. Yes I know
we’re old, but we’re not dead. Still love the old
cartoon LOL Yabadabadoo. I might be able to
use my laptop computer without to much trouble
aside from it being slow as all get out hehehehe.
Yet all of my main programs will not work on
the old timer laptop hehe being the processor
speed is too slow LOL. Hopefully when I send
my PC to Ron and Mandy at Century Computer
they will be able to get it all done fairly quickly
and get it back to me. All in all, God has been
good to Judy and I. We have problems just as
many of you do, but nothing we can’t handle.
God allows many things such as sickness and
death because they go along with humanity
and we will find more often that we are a bit
more appreciative of life when faced with those
times of trouble and surpassed them to another
day. Struggles make us stronger if we look for
the lessons and heed their warnings. Let this
day be filled with joy acquired from thankfulness
of days gone by. Look at today as a chance for
a better tomorrow. God will be there with you
with a blessing to receive. Yet you might not
see the blessings until they are in the rearview
mirror. Well I guess it’s time for me to begin
my little venture back through all I’ve written
here to that place of my recollection and see
if I can find a good word or phrase I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem LOL.
It looks like though I may have stumbled upon
a title just a few lines back hehehehehehe.
Yet, here I go once again to that place I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. Yep, that title
I stumbled on will work nicely hehehehehehe!
I hope I can put some good words together
to make a little sense hehehe ENJOY!!!!!

The Rearview Mirror

Many times trouble
seems a little clearer
when it is seen from
the rearview mirror.
Often our judgment
from days gone by
becomes a bit clearer
that we can’t deny.
Seen as the potholes
of a daily advent
some might be found
as truly God sent.
The rearview mirror
of yesterdays sights
might display clearer
our wrongs and our rights.
Time has a purpose
to fulfill our need
that in the future
shall plant a seed.
All of our problems
getting much nearer
might be answered
in the rearview mirror.

I hope that made at least a little sense to ya hehehe.
Yep, I think too much. Anyways, Judy brought home
some food from Burger King and mines getting cold,
so I need to find an ending somewhere, but not before
I tell ya what I don’t tell ya every week hehehehehehe
and that is I didn’t write any poems or haiku this week,
but I’m sure you will enjoy some of these poems from
the journal back in January 9, 2005. Yep, there are
13 poems to read. Many of you have not ever read
them being you’re new to my email list so they will
be new to you LOL. So enjoy. Now to find that off
switch, yet not before I wish you a most wonderful
God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and
we do too. Now to find that confounded off switch.
Found it hiding in my sandwich. MINE, get out of
there hehehe. See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

Now on with the poems
13 hehehe 🙂
Oh yea, HAPPY NEW YEAR 🙂

Stay and Pray

I saw such passion
within His eyes
as He said that I
would meet demise,
but He held my hand
to let me know
that He’d be there
the place I’d I go.
His passion felt so
very good
that I knew that He
truly understood.
He saw my efforts
that I tried
and knew that truth
lived on inside.
He held my hand
so passionately
that I knew
He did love me.
He said my time
would come one day,
but for now to
stay and pray.

For Today

I wonder should I
stumble through
even though
I should not do.
Things that I should
turn about.
I wonder should I
work it out.
I wonder when I
fall face down,
should I just then
turn around?
I wonder should I
change my path
that leads me to
my aftermath?
I guess I’ll wonder
everyday
if I’m going
the right way.
I wonder why
I still don’t see
what on Earth
is there for me?
I guess the reason
problems grow
is by doing
what I already know
I wonder still
about what’s told
when I wonder
what time rolled?
Decades troubles
brought today
through the wonder
when I pray.
Time rolled on
with wonder miles
and I wonder
brought some smiles.
Wondering of
now and then
and happy I’m not
where I’ve been.
I now know that
I should pray
and be happy
for today.

Tiny Bubbles

Tiny bubbles floating up
within the deep blue sea.
They seem to be the just remains
of some air set free.
The tiny bubbles just then burst
and end their floating way
as some others float on up
to see the light of day.
Tiny bubbles then arise
above the sea of blue
and then they float about awhile
just like some bubbles do.
Then some more tiny bubbles
float up to the top
and it seems the tiny bubbles
all begin to pop.
They just float on all the while
until there’s no more air
and then the bubbles that were floating
won’t be anywhere.

Why He Came

My vision’s slighted,
but I know
that God will guide me
where I go.
It doesn’t matter
how I see,
because my Lord
is guiding me.
My vision might be
sort of poor,
but I know
His loves for sure.
It doesn’t matter
what was done.
It just matters
what’s begun.
My past was washed
by Jesus’ Name,
for I am surely
why He came.

Little Bit Insane

Is a certain echo
worth a days repeat
if that certain echo
knocked you on your seat?
Is a days repeating
what trials by fire means
and does a certain echo
show you better scenes?
If the echoes repeat
is one that is no good
then it must mean that the first time
was misunderstood.
Is a certain echo
what looks so very clear?
If it’s what you recognize
then this time don’t go near.
If you’ve felt the fire
and still go back again,
then my friend you truly must be
a little bit insane.

Childlike Type View

Fantasies may seem
a little bit wild
when seen from the eyes
of a little tiny child.
A grownup sometimes
forgets about the day
that all their fantasies
came out to play.
We need to remember
the fantastic views
that we all saw
from our childlike type shoes.
Fantasies such as
some heroes and more
that flew through the windows
and upwards they’d soar.
We as the grownups
need to remember that time
that a fantasy hero
solved a fantastic crime.
So if all your fantasies
have died within you
then bring them back to life
with a childlike type view.

Do What Is True

God understands
much more than we know,
because He’s always there
wanting to help us each grow.
We may not see Him
or feel Him around,
but He’s always there
when we need solid ground.
Many times we turn away
and leave Him behind
while we let our travels
to come change our mind.
God understands
the things that we do
and that’s why He sent His Son
to help me and you.
He knew our self-will
would tear us apart
and so He gave us a key
for a new place to start.
The key is with Jesus Christ
His only Son.
For He surely paid the price
for all that we’ve done.
He hears all our prayers
when sincerely we’ve prayed
and God comes and helps us
with messes we’ve made.
Yet we must deal with
our outcomes from choice
and learn from those time frames
a much better voice.
A voice with some wisdom
that God allowed you
to help you the next time
to do what is true.

Smile No Matter

Catastrophic detail
may form in form of foe
and that bit of detail
may take you where you go.
Catastrophic moments
might take control of you
and make you then decide
all the wrong things to do.
Catastrophic detail
might just be your own
and it might just be mistakes
that the time has grown.
Sometimes the way we see
is tarnished by a thing
and we let what’s catastrophic
have a song to sing.
We can choose the catastrophic
or another way.
We can choose to smile no matter
and then change the day.

©By Bill Pearce
Jan 7, 2005

Accept You

I may not understand
all the things you do,
but it doesn’t stop the fact
that I truly do love you.
We all have our differences
that we do display
and it’s all those differences
that all make the day.
I may not see the same as you
nor you the same as me,
but it does not mean my friend
that we can’t be happy.
We can use our different views
to build a better time
and make what once was just a lemon
into what is sublime.
Yes I may not understand
all the things you do,
but I can try to see your side
to let me accept you.

Starless Night Skies

The stars aren’t shining
on this cloudy night
and all that is shining
is our own porch light.
The stars are all hiding
in the much cloudy sky
on the cold cold night
that’s all gone awry.
I stuck my head out
to see the night sight,
but all that I saw
was the cold and cloudy night.
The stars are all hidden
from my own eyes view
of which that is definitely
a little bit askew.
On this starless night sky
I needed to change me
for what was gone awry
was just the way I see.
My starless cloudy night
was me deep within
and the clouds only helped
it all then begin.
I needed to simply change
the view that I saw
into a night sight
that was with much awe.
A wonderful scenery
for my eyes to see
will then be in the starless
night skies for me.
The clouds will then form
a very special surprise
that will be of beauty
in the starless night skies.

Tell The Truth

We tend to create thunder
in sounds of despair
when all that we’re under
is only our hot air.
Letting a distortion
become an alibi
will make the sound of thunder
so loud that you will cry.
Lying gets you nowhere
except into a mess
for it makes a thunder sound
that gives to you no rest.
You have to keep on lying
to cover up the first
and then you’ll fill with so much pain
that one day you will burst.
So tell the truth no matter,
because it is what’s right
and then you’ll not hear lying thunder,
but peace to sleep at night.

This Hand

I found a hand just reaching out
to grab a hold of mine.
It had a look of tenderness
and of a great design.
This hand it had a special look
that made me understand
that it was not there to hurt me,
but to hold my hand.
I grabbed a hold so very tight
and held on for dear life
and then that tender special hand
became my loving wife.
Now that hand is here with me
to love me every day,
because I know that loving hand
shall never go away.
She is always true to me
this hand that holds me tight
and this loving hand of hers
is mine each day and night.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

Use Our Minds

Our minds can be trouble
if they are not right
and they can be the guides
to show a bad sight.
A mind can get stagnant
if it doesn’t think
and the mind that’s not thinking
will cause you to sink.
Our minds are a tool
that we tend to misuse
and our weary minds
tend to create our bad news.
It’s the way that we think
that determines our view
and the way that we think
makes us each misconstrue,
but if we use our minds
in a more productive way,
the way that we think
will show peace of mind today.

I might not write to much being my side is hurting
really bad right now, but I may surprise myself LOL.
How was your new years beginning? Mine was the
same as always. Home watching TV and messing
around on the computers. I haven’t shut mine down
as of yet hehehe. I’ve a sneaky feeling that when I
do, it will not start up again. I might have to send it
to my friends at Century Computer in Texas and get
it fixed. Plus, I was wanting them to put a larger
hard drive in it anyways. They will have to move all
my info from this one to the new one. Well, we shall
see what happens, being I might have to shut this
thing down due to weather conditions and you will not
hear from me for a while. I have though saved a lot
of my info to my external hard drives such as emails
and addresses. So I may try to use this rinky dink
laptop of mine, but it don’t work too well. In any
sense, I will be back one day or another. Until the
day I shut this thing down arrives, I’ll keep on with
my writing hehe. On with the journal! The weather
up here has been rather weird lately. A lot milder
than the previous years, but then wintertime is not
done with yet. Nope, we’ve got a few more months
of winter to endure. The snow at the moment is just
about melted away which is bizarre for up here, but
there’s a chance of snow tonight. There’s not much
new news up this way. Nope, we’ve been doing our
same old regular scheduled silliness. We still play
our farm games on Facebook hehe and watch all of
our favorite TV programs. I can feel God watching
over us. He is always there with an angel to send
in times of need. My prayer is that this new year
brings joy to each of your lives as well as our own.
Keep the faith that God has control no matter how
bad things might seem. Lives aren’t lost, Angels
are born. Well, before my side starts hurting too
badly, I guess I need to be revisiting all that I have
written here to see if I can find a word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s brand new
poem. So it’s away I go through my recollection
to that little place that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I believe I may of stumbled upon a good
title. Now, let’s see what if anything I can do with
it hehehe. Here goes……

God Has Control

The new year’s now
with days ahead
may be with the
things we dread.
Yet the new year
brings with glee
time to change
our history.
Not the past
but new days found
that in time
will come around.
God has control
through thick and thin
things we learn
from where we’ve been.
God allows us
our own time
through our will of
thens design.
He knows truly
through His Son
we will learn through
things we’ve done.
Yet the lessons
will not be
if we lose
our history.
If you’ve chosen
not to learn,
you might find
some Hell to burn.
Use good judgment
from your past
and make lessons
surely last.

Hehehe do you know how hard it is not to sign and
date my poems 2010 LOL?? I had to go back on all
of my poems yesterday and re date them hehehehe!
It will probably be around March before I get 2011
locked into my head LOL. Oh well, until then, I’ll
just try not to sign 2010 hehe. Ok, it’s time for me
to be telling you what I tell you every week and that
is, I wrote some more poems and yes I wrote some
more haiku. Last week was just due to Christmas 🙂
the reason I wrote so little. Anyways, I wrote 10
more poems and 22 haiku. Hehehe 2 of the poems
are wintry/Christmas poems. Yep, I’ve got a head
start on this years Christmas poems LOL. I wrote
over a hundred last year. I’ve written over four
hundred and fifty Christmas poems in the past 8
years. Yep, I love Christmas. Ok, now before
my hip starts hurting any worse than it is right now,
I need to be searching for that old off switch, but
not before I wish you a most joyful week and a
wonderful God filled new year. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now to find that freaking
off switch hehe. Found it hiding in the Christmas
tree making as an ornament LOL. Gotcha ya you
little varmint. See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Winters Moon

Winters moon
shines all night
with reflections
of sunlight.
Nighttimes fractions
scenery
are the shadows
I can see.
Winters displays
painted white
cover every
day and night.
Signs of morning
come to be
with the times
so wintry.
Pages turn
with each day
until winter’s
gone away.
Winters moon
then shall be
what that’s found
in history.

The Snowflakes

Soft white snowflakes
float and fly
as their driven
from the sky.
Their soft bodies
day and night
paint the hillsides
purest white.
Scenes are founded
through a glimpse
found within
a time past tense.
Memories
from childhood days
softly billow
in the ways.
So much magic
seems to shine
in the snowflakes
own design.
Painting trees
so snowy white
and reflecting
the sunlight.
Glistening scenes
from far away
turn to dreams
of now today.

New Years Beginnings

New is the day
beginning each year
giving us chances
now unto here.
Minutes to change
beginning one day
gives us a chance
to change our display.
New Years beginnings
start with an end
with oh so many
just needing a friend.
Lessons are learned
maybe sometimes,
yet there are many
just repeating crimes.
Don’t let this day,
this chance that you see
become the same
as your history.
Learn from the past
of your days gone by
what that this New years
should then comply.
Search your past
for lessons learned
and make them be
what you’ve discerned.
New Years gives
us all a way
to make now
a better day.

The Sands of Time

The sands of time
might seem to fall
counting seconds
over all.
Yet those sands
that time displays
can depict
some better days.
Ways of wisdom
gathered true
from the things
you used to do.
Let the sands
of time be seen
lesser nightmares
more a dream.
Search to find
the patterns made
through the sands
of which displayed.
Find the rhythms
said and done
learned as lessons
setting sun.
God will show you
through the sights
all the wrongs
and all the rights.
The sands of time
can be so well
if they’re not
just bitter Hell.
Lives can find
a way to see
through the Hell
of history.
Bitter or not
the days will find
things to learn
from time to time.

Give Ones Chances

Finding heartbeats
through a sight
might not show
what’s truly right.
Through the outside
might be hid
what that’s truly
then amid.
Let your heartbeat
seek so true
what that’s inside
me and you.
Time might conquer
what you see,
because your seeing
history.
Give ones chances
to show signs
of what’s truly
their designs,
For the moment
that you view,
might not really
be so true.

Troubled Grooves

Weathered moments
then and there
may seem like
they have no prayer,
yet the moments
there and then
have a chance
to seek from sin.
Weathered turnstiles
sought to burn
might just have
something to learn.
Lessons given
from Lord God
as our self-will
seeks applaud.
We might follow
wrongful ways
and end up
in bad displays.
Let the turnstiles
then and there
find you with a
breath of air.
Through the daily
troubled grooves
with Lord Jesus
we can’t lose.

Hear The Wind

Hear the wind,
feel it blow
as it goes on
to and fro.
See the things
all blown around
here and there
and town to town.
Hear the breathing
of its breath
sometimes more
and sometimes less.
Feel the texture
of its way
as it blows on
day to day.
Hear its voice
that speaks so loud
with the time
that it’s endowed.
Hear the wind
just passing through
now and then
and thereunto.

Make It Christmas

Christmas shadows
come and go
some with presents,
some with snow.
Time will pass
and leave in place
Christmas smiles
from place to place.
Yet some people
will be found
with but only
one big frown.
Them not holding
Christmastime
as Lord Jesus
Great Divine.
Keep now Christmas
within you
as you do
what all you do.
Take some time
to then remember
that great time
that’s in December.
Don’t let joy
to fade away
Make it Christmas
every day.

True Friends

Harboring sadness
as you go by
might leave you standing
alone till you die.
Don’t just hold it
as a fool.
Learn to use it
as a tool.
Let that sadness
help you grow
reaching out
to ones you know.
For just holding
it too tight,
might find you
a dismal sight.
Let some others
come along
and then maybe
you’ll be strong.
You’ll find truly
your true friends,
for they’re ones
without no ends.

Pointless

Pointless seconds
tick on by
as so many
try to fly.
Pointless anger
is just found
with so many
in astound.
Pointless people
stop and stare
watching others
here and there.
Pointless moments
come and go
leaving many
feeling low.
Pointless issues
sinking sand
need a Jesus
Helping Hand.
Pointless heartaches
said and done
need to seek for
God’s Own Son.

Haiku
for Jan 1, 2011

Helpless are people
that never try for themselves
to see if they can.

Wells filled with water
can determine a lifespan
if used correctly.

A lumberjacks axe
can create us much lumber
and also destroy.

Life might seem too hard,
but your past might of been worse
and prove a lesson.

Images display
as tomorrow and today bond
with our yesterdays.

Many might see winter
as a time filled with coldness
while others see snow.

Havoc has patterns
made through many emotions
as time runs amuck.

Pillows of blessings
are the clouds up in the skies
floating billowy.

Landing in the snow
might make for a soft landing
if not covered rocks.

In Christmas shadows
there might be images displayed
as your memories.

Writing a letter
will not ever make the point
unless it is meant.

Saving a dollar
can’t guarantee happiness
unless used wisely.

Many simple minds
can create conflicted moments
over small problems.

Errors in judgment
can be determined through time
of how things turn out.

Colored Easter eggs
can be found much easier
than white in the snow.

Lawns holding snow piles
can be used to build snowmen
with Christmas wishes.

Minutes will move on
leaving yesterdays shadows
as just memories.

Glancing at troubles
will not give a solution.
Find out an answer.

Searching for problems
might find you with abundance.
Search for happiness.

The seams of today
are held together by time
throughout history.

Raising an issue
that needs to be left alone
could create a storm.

Walking in the snow
leaves the essence of my feet
as footprints of time.
