Scenery Becomes Magical

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How was your Thanksgiving? I know that there are
many in Canada that celebrated it in October so I hope
you had a great one as well. Christmas is soon to be
upon our doorsteps. Are you ready? We’re not, but I
guess it’s coming anyways hehehe. Judy and I haven’t
done hardly any shopping, but then, that’s not what it
is about, is it. The reason for the season tends to get
lost in the wallets of many. Hehehe our wallets are as
empty as can be so that ain’t a problem for us hehehe.
So it’s on with the journal. The weather over this way
hasn’t been too bad. It snowed Wednesday, but it’s
all gone now. Yet, I’m sure we will be getting a lot
more of that white stuff real soon LOL. It never fails.
Those of you that read this journal on Sunday might
be noticing right about now that I have begun writing
it a little later in the day than I had been doing in the
past hehehe. Hey, Judy’s home all the time now, so
I have to work it in to the new schedule 🙂 hehehehe.
We’re both night owls and we stay up all night long
watching TV and all now that she’s unemployed and
trying to get on SSD. It might be a long wait for her
to get on SSD though, but we’ll survive for while off
of mine. God has never let us down. We’ve let our
own selves down time to time with wanna and greed,
but God has never let us down. I believe it’s time
for another topic hehehe. Today Judy and I might
play another one of our hidden object games hehe.
We finished the one we were playing yesterday 🙂
We like hidden object games and adventure games,
because we can play them together on my computer.
I’ve got the largest PC monitor hehe, plus there’s
not room enough for both of us to play in front of
her computer. Well, not much has changed here
at the Pearce’s household. The days are seeming
to blend together with the none changing schedules.
Hehehe, not complaining, but I often have to check
to see what day or month it is LOL. This January
I’ll be adding what year to that repertoire hehehehe.
Yep, it’s quite exciting around these parts, NOT.
Yet, we do manage to keep each other entertained.
Most people up here think I’m crazy for wanting
the snows to begin, but hey, I’m a Texan and I
still love to play in the snow and watch the white
snowflakes floating from the skies. The scenery
becomes magical as it paints the valleys and trees
with the essence of white. Hehehe, shouldn’t we
have white pools of water when the white snow
melts LOL? I know, don’t get smart with me 🙂
I know it’s just the oxygen caught in the crystals
that makes the snow appear as white. I can ask
dumb questions if I wanna LOL. I do thank God
for the scenes that appear right before my eyes
as the snow lands in its billows upon the ground.
I can look around and see His artwork all around
me. The clouds with their formations paint many
pictures that only Lord God has the talent for. Try
and find as many of God’s paintings as you can
today and let your worries to subside. Enjoy all
of His artwork. Now I believe it’s time for me to
be taking a trip back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find a good word or phrase
that might work for the title for today’s brand new
poem. So, it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection, I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I do believe I might of stumbled upon a good title
just a little ways back in my writing. I hope I can
write something that makes sense using it hehe.
Here goes nothing…..or not LOL!

Scenery Becomes Magical

The pictures that we find
in the paintings of each day
could become a porthole
to the scenes that swish and sway.
The scenery becomes magical
as seasons change and turn
giving us the blessings
that Lord God gave to discern.
Oh so many moments
in our daily minutes fare
we might find our viewpoints
without any love and care.
Search to find the blessings
that Lord God has gave to view
and then see the wonders
that are surely daily true.
The scenery becomes magical
as snowflakes fall and land
as they help some children
make a snowman that can stand.
Look at all the magical things
that live within each day
and enjoy the minutes seen
before they go away.

Okie dokie hehehe, there ya go! I hope you enjoyed
my rambling and maybe even the poem. I guess I need
to hurry and finish this so I can wake Judy and fix her
and I some much belated breakfast hehehe. Yeppers
it’s 4:49 PM and she’s still asleep. She’s gonna be up
all night again tonight LOL. Oh well, we do like to
watch the late night old reruns. An update on Judy’s
sister Barbara. She’s doing well, but in weakened
state due to all of the cancer treatments. Please keep
her in your prayers. Love ya Barb. Ok with that
said I guess it’s time for me to be telling you what I
tell you every week and that is I wrote some more
poems. Yeppers 10 more poems with four of them
Christmas poems. Also 22 more haiku for all of my
haiku lovers out there. Now with that said I need to
be searching for that old off switch, but not before
I wish you most wonderful belated Thanksgiving
and safe and God filled week. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now to find that freaking
off switch that is often hidden in the dumbest places.
Found ya, hiding in my bad ear thinking I wouldn’t
notice hehehe. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

A True Friendship

A true friend is someone
that will always be there
no matter what happens
when time seems unfair.
Often a true friend
will fall on their face
when troubles come
in a minutes abase.
A true friend is someone
that will surely call you
when you are needing
someone to talk to.
Yet they’re forgiven
when they have forgotten
to call you up
when you’re feeling rotten.
To have a true friend
you need to be one
also there giving
to ones that have none.
Then a true friendship
will be in place
gathered with blessings
that comes from God’s Grace.

Christmas Cheer

Seasons changing
brings to view
things now with a
whitish hue.
Mornings risen
from the night
with a wondrous
winters sight.
Moments blessings
white as snow
that remind of
HoHoHo.
Santa’s sleigh bells
will endear
all the sounds
of Christmas cheer.
Seasons paintings
that are hung
soon are all
the songs we’ve sung.
Sweet reminders
of the past
come then as a
shadows cast.

Returned

New arrivals
that we see
might remind
of history.
Segments counted
as arrived
might be what
that had survived.
Often seconds
said and done
are reflected
one by one.
New arrivals
might be found
as a timeframe
going around.
So if troubles
seem returned
look to see if
they are earned.

Letters To Santa

Letters to Santa
from children of time
are written sweetly
for presents to find.
A little girls dolly
or truck for a boy
written to Santa
to fill them with joy.
Letters all gather
at Santa’s work shop
as they have made it
to their final stop.
Santa reads sweetly
all that they wished for
a toy train for Jimmy
and for Jane a doll car.
Each letter’s written
with crayon or pencil
sent to old Santa
of wintertime’s tinsel.
At his fine workshop
old Santa will find
gifts filled with blessings
with wondrous design.
Built by the elves
just hammering away
building the presents
for soon Christmas Day.

Our History

Life of ages
counted true
brings the essence
scenic hue.
Time is printed
in our minds
as the stages
of mankind.
Life is sometimes
found displayed
as the mistakes
that we’ve made.
Lives of sorts
from pages turned
give to us
the things discerned.
Also things
we might not see
will become
our history.

The Rolling of Waves

The deepest seas
of heartfelt waves
bring to beaches
great displays.
Found by sunrise
waves roll in
bringing heartbeats
to begin.
It’s the depth of
seas of time
that display
a great design.
With the rolling
waves we view
different blessings
then come true.
Found momentous
in the morning
the day rolls on
with time adorning.

Then Christmas Started

This season’s bringing
thoughts very dear
found through the meanings
of God so sincere.
He sent us Jesus
through His Only Grace
to show us blessings
then found on His Face.
This very season
so many lose true
how that the reason
Jesus loves me and you.
Often the meanings
lose their design
when ones forget
what’s true Christmastime.
This is the moment
that’s counted for One
to do what truly
none other could of done.
It’s not the presents
or money we spend,
it’s about how
Jesus saved us from sin.
He came as a baby
then grew to a man
to show us truly
He does understand.
God didn’t have to,
but truly He knew
that we would need His
Jesus Christ view.
So He on that day
so very long ago
gave us His Blessings
with Jesus to show.
Then Christmas started
the month of December
for us to try to
always remember.

Sundial Dreams

Minutes shadows
count the view
sundial dreams
of there and to.
Patient portions
of the day
come and go
and fade away.
Sundial dreams
of here and there
display many
seconds prayer.
Seen as sometimes
faded sun
sundial dreams
are then begun.
Counting moments
shadows play
with the minutes
of each day.
Minutes essence
then are found
sundial dreams
of sight and sound.

Heavens Breath

Breathing of heartbeats
comes as a scent
as Heavens breath
and all it’s intent.
Seeming as sometimes
scented with fear
while we are wanting
love to endear.
When Heavens breathing
minutes to gain
God knows we’re ready
for then to attain.
With Heavens breath
we might misconceive
how that a moment’s
needing to leave.
Often our journals
written in mind
speak only wishing
for dreams we can find.
So allow Heavens
breath so to be
all that God’s truly
given for free.

Turning of A Page

Soon the day
will be as laid
with the truth
of Christmas made.
Scenic glory
found on cue
with the sight of
Santa too.
All the colors
will be seen
with some red
and blue and green.
Soon the music
that we hear
will be sung
like yesteryear.
Songs of Jesus
and His love
and a song of
two white dove.
The twelve days
of Christmastime
will be heard as
a sweet rhyme
The days will be
as distant seas
displayed with
a winters breeze.
Soon that day
will be on stage
with the turning
of a page.

Haiku
for Nov 27, 2011

The lights of morning
sometimes show what’s mistaken
and leave a bad taste.

A simple error
might be the needed moment
to move you along.

Looking out windows
could leave you lost in dreamland.
Keep a grip on life.

Yesterdays shadows
are only our memories
unless they’re in stone.

Looking for answers
might find you with more questions
with some confusion.

Painted memories
are as colors we have seen,
sometimes misconceived.

A letter of love
needs not be written in ink,
but written in truth.

With yesterdays past
comes glimmers of destiny
with hope for today.

Egos illusion
paints a surmounted picture
of maybe not true.

Listless confusion
creates troubles deep within
that patience could prevent.

Beyond a moment
lies a heartbeat of minutes
waiting to be seen.

Many with problems
think no one else has problems
and they are dead wrong.

Life is a story
that many read day to day
while seeking the end.

Read the many words
in the days that come and go
and don’t get antsy.

The leaves have fallen
leaving only evergreens
displayed through winter.

A line on a face
might display someone’s journey
that lives on inside.

Sometimes tomorrow
holds our fear of the unknown
preventing our today.

Lengthy discussions
will often lose perception
of the listener.

Tomorrows doorway
needs yesterday and today
to display the path.

A dreamers minute
might last for an eternity
leaving them empty.

With hurried wanna
comes portions of deception
that might end in pain.

Fictional promises
will destroy all that is good
and end in despair.

Family And Friends

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
&
HAPPY THANKSGIVING

The winter weather is getting colder with more chances
for snow. Yep, the year is moving right along. Judy and
I are watching the seasons change together as Christmas
gets closer with every day gone by. There hasn’t been a
lot of change in our household hehehe. OK, there hasn’t
been much of any change in our household. We’re still
doing our regular scheduled stuff as usual hehehe. Right
now we’re eating cereal as our late breakfast, being we
were both up all night playing on our farms in FarmTown
and watching TV. We watched Happy Days for an hour
being there was not any other choice we liked hehehehe.
Nope, we lead one none exciting lifestyle which could put
even the worst insomniac asleep LOL. Well it’s on with
the journal to yet another topic. Judy’s sister Barbara
is doing OK, yet still having to take the chemotherapy
and her shots at home of sorts for her cancer. Please
keep her in your prayers. She’s getting real weak from
all the chemo treatments. Hopefully soon this will all be
over and done with and she can move on with her life.
I know, she’ll have to do the same as my sister and
keep tabs on it being cancer can return. My sister
Peggy also had breast cancer many years ago, but is
doing great today. Her and my mom are wanting to
come up sometime maybe next year and see the fall
colors. We shall see if they make it then. I haven’t
seen anyone since they came up the summer of 2008.
Sure wish I could travel, but health does not allow me
that privilege. If Judy was able, we could take turns
driving to Texas, but my eyes and all would not hold
up to a long drive of any sorts. Airplanes are out of
the question with their prices and accomodatons as
well as someone would have to pick me up and drive
me around here and there. Oh well, I’m hoping that
someone comes up to visit some day. Until then, I
guess I will hang loose doing all I can do to entertain
myself hehe. No matter how weird it might be LOL.
My cereal is getting soggy hehehe. I guess I need
to hurry up and eat it huh! Love that Honeycomb 🙂
Yep, it’s our favorite brand of cereal. Now, off of
that topic and onto another hehehehe. I thank God
for all of the scenery He gives me to look at as well
as take pictures of and the ability to write poetry that
reflects all that I can see and reminisce about as days
go by. Life is a journey which we may never truly
know or understand some of the pathways. Many
of our journeys are filled with hidden meanings that
may not come clear until time has run its course.
Oooh, mushy cereal hehehe. I knew I should of
gone ahead and eaten it before starting this hehehe.
Oh well, it still taste of its yummy goodness LOL 🙂
On with my rambling for a bit hehehe. As I look
outside I can see that the scenes are changing with
winters prelude and the soon coming snows. Each
day draws it more closer with every breath of winter.
God gives us these seasons to reflect upon as the
days are all counted. Throughout winter we think
of springtime and with spring we think of summer
and then fall is anticipated as winter comes again.
Be thankful for the seasons and the changing of the
days. God gives us a variety to fill us with thoughts
that conclude as dreams. Be thankful for the many
things that are changing each day. If you do not
see them, it might be because you’re not paying
attention or better yet trying to ignore them, but
changes are in the making. Learn to look for the
goodness in the changes, not just the regret for
all that has passed. This coming Thanksgiving
Day keep your heart open to thankfulness for all
that God has given. Look passed the moments that
you lost someone or something and see what all
you’ve gained. Being up here in Maine I’ve been
given the chance to see scenery that I would not
of seen if I had stayed in Texas. Yes, I miss my
home state, family and friends, but life moves on
as new shadows are made. I’m thankful for a few
new shadows in my life. One great shadow is my
loving wife Judy. We’ve had 10 years together
that I would not trade for anything. Thank You
God for all you have given. Now I reckon it’s time
for me to begin my journey back through all that
I’ve written here through my points of recollection
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 place that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I may have found
a good title just a little ways back, but we shall
see huh hehehe. Here goes…….

Family And Friends

Daily with lifestyles
Lord God always sends
timeless conclusions
of family and friends.
Painted with brushstrokes
lives for a while
may seem to grow to
a memorized smile.
Family and friends
with the counting of days
find ways of making
a much better gaze.
If you are empty
from family and friends
look to Lord Jesus
for His never ends,
For He’s our family
friend through and through
loving us always
no matter what’s true.
So seek now family
and friendships to find
and find the blessings
of wondrous design
found in the making
of a timeless accord
family and friends then
through Jesus our Lord.

Looking back on what I wrote, it makes a lot of sense
to me. I am most times writing to myself and just letting
you see what I wrote to myself hehehe, but often I am
writing to you all or hehehe to my loving wife. Yet the
poems are always meant to give you a smile. I managed
to finish my bowl of Honeycomb cereal before it totally
got all mushy hehe. Now I guess it’s time for me to be
telling you what I tell you every freaking week and that
is, I wrote some more poems. Yeppers 10 more poems
with 3 of them Christmassy styles. Also yes of course
I wrote 22 more haiku for all my haiku lovers out there.
I hope some of the poems and or haiku find a way into
your heart. Now I think it’s about time for me to begin
my search for that dad burned off switch, but not before
I wish you a most wonderful God filled week and also
a Happy Thanksgiving. Remember, Jesus loves you
and we do too. Now to find that freaking off switch
that seems to always try to hide from me hehehehehe.
Found ya hiding in my conglomerate of cereal milk
just wading LOL. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Shadows Of Then

Time is a moment
many don’t see
as they go walking
through history.
So many people
from day to day
just try to hide
as they walk away.
Time then reminds
as days pass on by
times that were seen
who, what, where and why.
Moments are gathered
as time then records
built by the essence
of nailing of boards.
Often our moments
are seen in frame
as shadows of then
felt as the same.

The Main Point of View

Christmastimes season
is coming soon
with every essence
of Christmastimes tune.
Some of the songs
that Christmas bestows
give us the fragrance
of seasonal snows.
Christmastimes paintings
hung with a smile
bring us the glimmers
of wonderlands while.
All of the stories
told by the fire
of Christmas morning
in all its entire.
They bring us joy
through Christmassy scenes
painted with colors
of reds, blues and greens.
Christmastime thoughts
while sleeping in bed
fill us with dreams
that dance in our head.
Thinking of Santa
and all the joy
that Christmas morning
will then deploy.
Also sweet Jesus
the main point of view
will be the blessings
living in you.
Giving us hopeful
found in His peace
Christmastimes moments
make sadness cease.

Thought

Thought of sections
dreamt of views
bring to sight
of hopeful news.
Yet they’re needing
thoughts to be
sights begun
that we can see.
Dreamt so often
many find
things we wanted
time to time.
Yet those wantings
day to day
might just be
a wrongful way.
So with thinking
thoughts can view
things around
that are not true.
Use good judgment
thoughts you find
and seek for some
peace of mind.

Spread The Joy

The stage is set
for changing scenes
and the colors
reds and greens.
Scenes surround us
daily found
as dear Christmas
comes to town.
The pages turned
as fall is gone
leaving winters
daily dawn.
Christmas minutes
counted true
come on stage
to daily view.
All the pictures
hung so sweet
are the paintings
none compete.
Hung as blessings
sweetly found
as white snow
upon the ground.
Christmas moments
are in place
as the season
makes its face.
People singing
songs so sweet
with their Christmas
meal to eat.
Yet some people
are alone
and those blessings
they’ve not known.
So this season
that you find
spread the joy of
Christmastime.

Plant A Seed

This Thanksgiving
share your heart
with someone
that’s torn apart.
Let them see a
thankful view
through the sight
of what you do.
Let not greed
to find you bare
without love
and without care.
Look for thankful
through your sights
in your days
and in your nights.
This Thanksgiving
plant a seed
that is not just
full of greed.

Let Your Truth Shine

The singing of hope
that others might hear
might be the sound
of not so sincere.
Let your truth shine
as singing is found
with maybe humming
of God’s solid ground.
It takes not words
to speak of His Love
for it’s the actions
that many think of.
So if you’re singing
and not very true
about what’s living
inside of you,
take up your cross
and follow God’s Son
through His forgiveness
for all that you’ve done.

A Christmas Sight

A page of winter
turns with grace
building books
with seasons face.
Written sections
that we find
are the pages
on our mind.
Sometimes winter
will be found
with white snow
upon the ground.
A page of Christmas
then will seem
as a blessing
from a dream.
Turn the pages
with your eyes
and see all that
then complies.
See the pages
black and white
found within
a Christmas sight.

Spread God’s Love Around

Thankful people
often share
all God’s blessings
love and care.
Yet some people
just find true
all just greedy
in their view.
Also some are
found with pain
as their lives
have gone insane.
It’s those people
that need you
so to give them
love so true.
Show them blessings
of God’s grace
and put smiles
upon each face.
Then they might just
share what’s found
when you spread
God’s love around.

A Simple Blessing

A simple story
told of a time
might make the difference
of frame of mind.
A simple sentence
said so sincere
might help someone make it
another year.
A simple heartfelt
caring type word
might help a person
that’s now so absurd.
A simple minute
spent sharing true
might be the thing
that you’re needing do.
A simple break from
all that’s within
might be the thing to
help you begin.
A simple blessing
that you don’t see
might just be found
in someone like me.

Through Each Threshold

Foraging thresholds
could just explode
leaving you problems
on down the road.
Seeking for hurried
thresholds of time
might just expose
a horrible sign.
So if you’re searching
for what to do
through every threshold
found before you,
look for the signs
on doorways detail
for some will show
but only pure Hell.
Also some doorways
will not be found
truly with peace
of God’s Holy Ground.
Let your days judgment
that you unfold
lead you to goodness
through each threshold.

Haiku
for Nov 19, 2011

Sometimes deceptions
are the outer shells we see,
so look much deeper.

Lessons from speed bumps
are sometimes the best teachers
for they’re remembered.

Today gives chances
from early dawn till midnight
so make good with them.

The choices that we make
discern tomorrows pathways,
so choose them all well.

The mornings sunshine
awakens all that see it,
while others seek sleep.

Winter flowers blossom
with their life through the coldness
while others will die.

Pictures of winter
hang in the days scenery
as snowflakes of art.

The grandest of views
is seen by a newborn child
as it awakens.

Points of descriptions
come from different people
and their perceptions.

Wrinkles on a face
describe a persons lifestyle
with their smiles and frowns.

Watching the white clouds
gives a chance for a dreamer
to find many things.

The scenes in winter
are often described as white,
but often it’s not.

Morning brings shadows
that we may not want to see
due to dark of night.

One with another
brings chances for a friendship
or an enemy.

Tomorrows minutes
might just be counted wrongly.
Take care of today.

Almost in horseshoes
describes some situations
that did not matter.

Seven’s the number
describing God’s forgiveness
times seventy times.

Likable people
are often not as they seem.
Look through the exposed.

Places we travel
gather memories within
we can revisit.

Hurrying today
will not make it go faster.
It will wear you out.

Fragments of worry
can cause tomorrow’s ulcers.
Give worries to God.

Answers to questions
often come back as more questions.
Some have no answers.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Another week has come and gone and I have returned
once again to ramble. Not much new has happened up
this ways. It seems we’re still getting a lot of rain for the
next few days. Talk about weird weather hehehe. The
days have been not too bad temperature wise and even
the nights haven’t been all that cold or at least not as bad
as it has been. There might be a few snow showers in
the days to come, but not today. It’s bright and sunny.
Our neighbors kids were riding their riding lawn mowers
around and around their house just a few moments ago,
so I waited for them to stop before I started my journal.
Looks like they either both ran out of gas or they got
tired of riding in circles LOL. There’s not much that
I can report from the Pearce’s household. It’s still as
boring as always. I’m searching for the true beginning
of the winter snows. Yep, I do love the sight of snow
as it falls from the sky and lands on the ground painting
the days with fluffy white scenes. Though I do get tired
of it by February or thereabouts hehehehe. Especially
when it turns to plain old ice of which I slip and slide
upon in my struggles to get to the mailbox LOL. Oh
well, that’s life hehehe. Judy’s still in bed, but she’s
not sleeping. She’s watching the game show called
Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader. My answer is
nope hehehe. They didn’t have the courses of studies
that they have now back when I was a kid hehehehe.
We didn’t have computers. Matter of fact, I brought
my calculator to school one day and my teacher took
it from me saying we cannot use those in here LOL.
Now they are a requirement as well as computers.
I’ve heard they’re starting kids off in pre school
with computers which I might add they didn’t have
preschool anything when I was a kid. I went from
home straight to the first grade of which consisted of
finger painting and playing music or hehe trying to
play music. That is where I found my love for the
drums. I started on the bongos and went from there.
I slowly found that I also had a knack for poetry
at around that time as well hehehe. I didn’t write
it, I just made up little rhymes time to time off the
top of my head. My old friend Mark thought it
was weird how I could make up poems so quick.
LOL he still thinks the same to this day. Isn’t it
weird how two people could grow up literally as
almost brothers and turn out so differently. We did
everything together. Everybody thought we were
brothers. Hehehe we even did the blood brother
thing where we pricked each others fingers and
you know hehehe. Yep, those were the days.
I am nowadays stuck up here without any nearby
friends. It’s lonely. Yes I have Judy, but that
doesn’t count. She gets to spend a lot of time with
her sisters and all, but I haven’t anyone I can go
to visit being driving nowadays is not my forte due
my eyes being only one () and it gets weak real fast.
Plus, I don’t know my way around these parts very
well and I can’t remember directions riding as a
passenger. I guess I will be OK. I just get lonely.
Yet I’m sure there are many of you that have it
a lot worse than I do, so I try not to pity myself
too much hehehe, but it’s hard at times. I guess
that’s why I am so anxious for the snows to begin.
It’ll give me something to do. I do love to play in
the snow hehehehehehehe, but as of now, it’s just
cold and wet. LOL, I know, stop whining hehehe.
So, on with the journal. Judy and I are still doing
our FarmTown farms on FaceBook. Not much has
changed there. Still no new levels or anything, but
they have added a few new facilities. Now we need
more farms to plant on to provide crop for all of the
new facilities hehehe. We’re still playing our Big
Fish hidden object games although we finished the
one we were playing and have not yet begun another.
We’re trying to decide which one to start playing,
but first giving our brains a rest. She has to do most
of the searching being my only eye gets weak and
blurry quickly. It’s aggravating having only one
good eye and it’s not all that good, but at least I do
have it of which I’m very thankful. We all tend to
forget to be thankful for the things that we take for
granted. Such as our eyesight, smell, taste or even
touch. Yes so often we might also forget that even
walking and talking is to be thankful for. There are
so many out there that cannot do one or the other
or maybe even both. Learn to be thankful for the
things you are able to do each day, such as see
the morning sun and smell the flowers as you take
a walk around the yard. There is so much that we
should be thankful for. So take the time to see all
the blessings that you have and be thankful for
them. Let God help you see all the blessings that
you might have been overlooking. Now with that
said, I reckon it’s time once again for me to be
taking my little venture 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
new poem. So, it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always refer to each week as
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I might have
found a good title, but we shall see, mwahaha!

Be Thankful

When you are worried
found in despair
seek for the blessings
God’s love and care.
When you are saddened
crying your tears
seek for remembering
much better years.
When you’re alone
with no one to hold
be thankful for Jesus
and all He foretold.
Learn to be thankful
for so many things
such as the sunshine
and bluebird that sings.
When you are sickly
in coming of days
be thankful for Jesus
and His greatest ways.
Don’t let your sorrows
to be all you do.
Be thankful for blessings
that live within you.

I hope that poem made sense to ya at least a little hehe.
Thanksgiving day is just a week away or so. I thought
maybe this poem would suit it. Yet of course I might do
another one next week hehehe. Oh well, such as it is.
I guess I need to be finishing this so I can fix Judy and
I some late breakfast hehehe. We’re both night owls 🙂
yet I never sleep due to health issues. When Judy and I
met, I was working night shift and had been for the past
30 some odd years off and on. Yep, I’ve always been
a night person. Now I’m a whatever person hehehehe.
I sleep whenever I can grab a catnap. Ok it’s time for
me to begin my search for that elusive off switch, but
not before I tell you what I tell you every week and that
is, I wrote some more poems and haiku. Yeppers 10
more poems with 3 of them Christmassy and one of
them sort of wintery hehehe. I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope you
enjoy a few of them one or the other or both hehehe.
Now before I search for that off switch I must wish
you a most wonderful God filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now it’s off to find
that off switch. Found it hovering my eyelids trying
to close them 🙂 Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. I had to wait for Judy to finish watching
the game show Press Your Luck (WHAMMY)
so she could help me edit this mess LOL…..

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

This Fine Weather

Weather changes
bring their views
sometimes with some
snow filled shoes.
Seasons play
as songs to sing
on through winter
and to spring.
Weathers paintings
are hung high
in the seasons
daily sky.
Wondrous settings
seem to show
as the weather
gives us snow.
White formations
float and sway
in old winters
Christmas way.
Weather changes
come to be
such as blessings
we can see.
Soft white snowflakes
paint a view
that seems always
so brand new.
This fine weather
seems to shine
that of wondrous
Christmastime.

Personalized Christmases

Some see tomorrow,
some see today,
while they are searching
every which way.
Seeking for Christmas
of their accord
and not what’s best then
from our sweet Lord.
Some seek their personal
settings to shine
sometimes so different
than yours or mine.
Personalized Christmas
of red, blue and green
is sometimes sought to
daily be seen.
Lose that perception,
to daily deploy
and you might find that
God given joy.
Yet let the miracles
twinkle and shine
that of the wonderful
scenes Christmastime.
Show of the manger
Jesus was born
as you’re awaiting
that Christmas morn.
Let all that glimmers
be that of Love
seen as through Christmas
from God above.
Personalized Christmases
should not be found
without the sight of
Jesus around.

Let Not Your Hurries

A minute a moment
counted so true
might need atonement
coming from you.
Sometimes the fractions
that you display
might seem as actions
bitter time sway.
Many a minute
will sometimes show
all that’s within it
that you don’t know.
Playing a fools game
leads to despair
and then what’s displayed
might seem unfair.
Often your daylight
only shows you
what you are seeking,
not what that’s true.
Let not your hurries
to tally your goal,
for they’ll bring worries then
with a large toll.

Simply The Moments

A simple times flavor
tasted on cue
brings back the moments
living in you.
Simply the moments
counted and gained
bring us the heartbeats
that had remained.
Looking through portholes
of yesterday
we might see someone’s
then other way.
Often the changes
that time’s begun
bring us the shadows
of thens distant sun.
Paintings hung sweetly
on our walls of time
bring us the meadows
of heartbeats sublime.
A simple times flavor
might be now tasted
that of a yesterday
we might of wasted.
It’s our perception
of which we remember
that makes much better
the thens burning ember.
Simply some moments
in our memories
are but a fraction
of embers of seas.

November Rains

Seen as raindrops
now today
I see shadows
every way.
November rains
bring their view
as an essence
fresh and new.
Sweet November
gives a show
sometimes seen
as early snow.
November rains
come falling down
bringing moisture
to the ground.
Sweet November
now displays
what’s to be
in future days.
Sights of snowflakes
float with ease
landing on the
grass and trees.
Yet Novembers
days design
now is welcoming
wintertime.
Seen as segues
found in place
November rains
the snows replace.

Sometimes Sorrow

Through our sorrow
we can find
sights tomorrow
peace of mind.
Sometimes sorrow
needs to be
so to set our
minutes free.
Holding sorrow
deep inside
can make problems
to reside.
Let your sorrow
find someone
through the help of
God’s Own Son.
Let not sorrow
destroy you
leaving only
saddened view.
Through releasing
sorrowed ways
you can find
some brighter days.

A Fisherman’s Tale

A story that’s told
as fiction not true
might just become
a moment with you.
A scary story
that someone has shared
might become fuel
for future times scared.
A story repeated
as fishermen’s tales
might become scary
with many details.
Sometimes a story
that someone perceived
might become something
another believed.
So don’t let stories
of fiction or true
lose track of moments
that are within you.
A fisherman’s tale
of how it might seem
could be mistaken
for truth in a dream.

Catching Snowflakes

Catching a snowflake
and tasting its smile
brings me a portion
of wintertime’s while.
Running through snowflakes
as they fall down
I find myself with
an upside down frown.
While catching snowflakes
I fill real good
as I see white snow
in my neighborhood.
Scenes all around me
all covered with white
yet in November
they’re gone before night.
Of course November
in it’s later days
will bring more snowflakes
of which to amaze.
Then catching snowflakes
so tasty divine
I will be daily
in this wintertime.

Look For The Joy

Today’s a day
that time has shown
from the days
that we have known.
Through each today
finds our tomorrows
sometimes with goodness
sometimes with sorrows.
Today’s a day
that God gave free
with our choices
which to be.
Sights and sounds
of each today
are our portions
that display.
Look for the joy
in today’s of time
and let the sadness
fall from your mind.

Through The Window

A window of winter
opened up cold
with all the stories
time has foretold.
A window of Christmas
also in tune
shows through with meanings
coming real soon.
A window of morning
awakens in style
that within winter
with Christmastimes smile.
Now as our windows
open with views
seek for the glory
that Christmas ensues.
Look through the window
and see in the frame
all of the glory
that is Jesus’s Name.

Haiku
for Nov 12, 2011

Losing a second
does not lose the whole hour,
but it is needed.

Scenes in November
show an essence of winter
displayed by snowfall.

Lessons descriptions
come as mistakes that we’ve made
and also others.

Clinging to someone
could suffocate their feelings.
Let them choose to stay.

Today’s directions
are the fuel for tomorrow,
so watch where you turn.

Bringing someone pain
due to yesterdays hatred
can backfire on you.

The ghost’s of today
are shadows of yesterday
filled with memories.

Linking hopeful times
with only fragmented dreams
could bring you nightmares.

Tomorrows we see
are sometimes just illusions
painted with our fears.

Errors in people
are often seen as bold print,
not that important.

Sometimes solutions
that we’ve come to understand
are just more problems.

The pages we turn
might not have been read clearly,
so look back to see.

Mimicking others
leaves yourself to be mimicked
as anger resides.

Forgetting loved ones
could find you alone one day
so remember friends.

Mornings are displayed
as early shadows of time
counted with sunlight.

Written as stories
are our ongoing lifestyles
that others can see.

The sound of beauty
is heard throughout our visions
and heartbeats of time.

Predicting minutes
might conjure up some problems
that might not of been.

Looking hard at then
could cause now to elude you
and bring you sadness.

Thinking causes pain
when you know not what is right
and what that is wrong.

While blinking midnight,
a VCR shows ones knowledge
of how to set it.

The flowers of spring
are just memories in time
that soon will return.

Often Problems

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have ya been? We’re doing OK. Life has tossed
us a few surprises, but we can handle them. Are you
ready for Christmas? It’s sneaking up on us real fast.
I have my Santa suit ready hehehe HoHoHo. I bought
Judy a Mrs. Claus dress, but not sure if she’ll like it or
not. We’ll soon see. It arrives Tuesday. Today is her
birthday. Her and I are going to celebrate our birthday
together being mine was a literal bomb due to a few
unforeseen issues that happened. So we’re going out
to buy us a small cake and shop a bit then going to get
us some take out dinners. Then we’re going to get
ice cream from Burger King hehehe. Don’t that sound
exciting!? Not sure when we’ll do that though, but it
will happen. Yeppers we be exciting people huh hehe!
We just a few moments ago went and harvested our
crops on Farmtown and replanted LOL. Don’t that
sound like fun hehe!? Ok, so we’re not that exciting.
We just fixed ourselves some oatmeal to eat while I
write this confounded article LOL. I’m waiting on
mine to cool a bit before eating. I’ve still got a few
burns on my lips from last time eating before letting
it cool hehehe. The weather up this ways is rather
nice. It’s beautiful outside right now, although it’s
a tad cold. It’s 54F degrees right now and it might
get down to 37F tonight. It was in the lower 20’s
last night. Brrrr is right. Well, as I said, Judy
and I are enjoying the day together just relaxing.
I’ve gotta get our car down to Wayne’s Auto soon
so to get our windshield replaced. It’s got a crack
right down the middle of it. Doesn’t all this sound
so wonderful LOL! Well, Judy just went to take
a shower, so I’m gonna try and finish this article
so we can start WAHOOING her birthday hehehe.
We might go outside for a stroll and take a few
pictures if we’re up to it being it is a beautiful day.
God has been good to us. We have our share of
dilemmas that present themselves time to time, but
God is here with us to help us through them. Most
of our problems stem from our own desires that
lead us in wrong directions. Often problems though
will present themselves through bumpy roads that
we’re not prepared. Let God help you with your
bumpy roads and self will run wild. Blessings will
most surely come true. Maybe not what you would
have wanted, but surely what God saw you were
in need of. Let the seasons show you new blessings
through the shadows of then. Let yourself blossom
into His Creation and not just what you want to be.
Now with that said, I reckon it’s time for me to be
heading 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 place of my recollection that
I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I might
have stumbled upon a good title just a bit back,
so let’s see what I can do with it. Here goes….

Often Problems

When our struggles
seem to find
places there
within our mind,
we might also
be found stood
doing what that
isn’t good.
Often problems
come and go
from some places
we don’t know.
Found as shadows
dark as night
while displaying
every sight.
Often problems
that we see
come from our own
history.
So those problems
that find you
need a little
Jesus Hue.
Let Him guide you
step by step
through the minutes
so inept.
Seek His guidance
as you go
through what all
the problems show.
Often problems
then will fade
as with Jesus
peace is made.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and maybe even the
poem hehehe. Judy and I are enjoying this beautiful
sunny day. Being broke doesn’t give us much to be
able to do, but we have each other. Yes, we have our
share of bad days, but forgiveness is the key. Not
letting a few bad days affect the rest of your life by
allowing it to make you do what you might regret.
God gives us forgiveness through His Son. We should
always try to learn from that. I know hehehehehehe,
don’t be stupid and let the same things happen agin
and agin just forgiving. Learn from those mistakes.
LOL, Ok, before I begin rambling AGAIN, I need
to be telling ya what I tell ya every week and that is
I wrote some more poems and haiku. Yeppers 10
more poems with 3 of them Christmassy/wintery.
Also I once again wrote 22 more haiku for all of
my haiku lovers out there. I hope you enjoy a few
of them. Well I guess it’s about time for me to be
searching for that old off switch, but not before
I wish you a most wonderful and God filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too. Now
to find that freaking off switch. Found it swimming
in my runny oatmeal LOL doing the back stroke.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Nw on with the poems and haiku.
10 and 22 heheheheheheehehehe 🙂

Deepest Thoughts

While thinking thoughts
my thoughts arrive
at the reasons
I’m alive.
Deepest thoughts
that thinking viewed
brings me thoughts,
some misconstrued.
While I’m thinking
thoughts of time
I find stages
dime to dime.
Financial thinking
thoughts displayed
thought out while thinking
mistakes I’ve made.
Thinking is ventured
through every thought
what that my thinking
then should have not.
Often my thinking
brings me a view
of many thoughts
of then thereunto.
Scenes full of thinking
thought out so clear
brought me the good times
from yesteryear.

Many Portholes

Through a porthole

found as minutes

Through a porthole
many see
what is just
their history.

thereunto.
Seen as portholes
are some days
with some minutes

Given chances
portholes show

Help Me Jesus

Troubles come,
some unprepared
with some seeming
needing shared.
Yet some troubles
that I see
are just meant for
only me.
Troubles shout
and sometimes not
all their scenes
a little, lot.
Sometimes troubles
that I find
wear really heavy
on my mind.
Looking at
the troubled views
I will sometimes
just confuse.
Standing quietly
in my gaze
I see troubles
future days.
Now I stand here
silently
wishing for
some good to see.
Sights and sounds
I can record
in my prayers
unto my Lord.
Jesus help me
find some peace
that is found
when troubles cease.
Help me Jesus
now I pray
so to find
a peaceful day.

Journeys Ways

Wakened Journeys
make their stride
sometimes outwards,
some inside.
Marked as thresholds
sometimes seems
often nightmares,
often dreams.
Lessons driven
from the ages
might sometimes
be different stages.
Wakened journeys
we’ve recorded
might be what
seems sort of sordid.
Yes the truth
in journeys ways
might be sordid
as a phase.
Yet some lessons
might reside
through the journeys

Scenic Hue

Weather changes
display signs
of the moments
wintertime’s.
Weathers bringing
things to see
sights and sounds
to some degree.
Winters weather
brings in place
painted pictures
trace by trace.
Scents of Christmas
also show
scenes around me
white as snow.
Maybe now
just in my mind,
but those scenes
I’ll surely find
as sweet Christmas
painted true

Seasons Shadows

Seasons shadows
bring their view
in the days of
me and you.
Painting pictures
in the skies
for the visions
in our eyes.
Seasons transfer
dreams within
as the mornings
do begin.
Playing music
we can hear
just like sounds of
yesteryear,
Seasons bring us
oceans finds
that are endless
in our minds.
Now the seasons
that transpire
bring us journeys
dreamers fires.
Placing heartbeats
in our views
for our constant
dreamers shoes.
Even clouds blow
while designing
all the seasons
they’re reminding.
Truthful paintings
in the seasons
give us hopeful
with God’s reasons.

Sometimes A Fairytale

A fairytale minute
in dreamers prelude
brings in a moment
that may not conclude.
Some see a fairytale
as being real,
but all they’re seeing
is time sex appeal.
A fairytale second
in minutes of time
might in a way just
fill up your mind.
Sometimes a fairytale
can become true
if it’s a blessing
given to you.
Seeing that fairytale
as its true glance
might make it be
a truthful romance.
A blessing from God
that seems as surreal
a fairytale moment
might then reveal.

Merry Christmas

Christmas thinking
comes so clear
in this wintry
time of year.
Seasons greetings
many say
as they venture
Christmas Day
This times season
comes to be
as a blessing

Yet so often
Christmastime
is just sadness
in design.
Within memories
many show
they’ve forgotten
Christmas snow
and the blessings
God’s displayed
when through Jesus
they portrayed.
Seasons greetings
should be heard

Let Not Your Dreams

Found as a dream
a sight may confirm
that what you’ve seen
is minutes you yearn.
So often dreams
are hidden nightmares
filled with our wants
for daily affairs.
Let now your dreams
be not so misplaced
as you inquire
how it might be faced
Sometimes our dreams
are given at glance
from our Lord God
as blessings advance.
It’s often dreams
that we misconstrue
when we see wrong
what is false or true.
Often our dreams
are just merely time
painted in pictures
of wanted design.
Let not your dreams
to lead you astray
as you encounter

When Voids Come

Found in a void
might be misplaced
timeless encounters
timeless has traced.
Pictures concluding
inside our minds
might be the void
of our daily finds.
Found as illusion
many might see
sights of conclusions
we don’t agree.
It might be wrong
the void that you’ve found,
for it might be
just time going round.
Written illusions
inside our head
might be conclusions
seen also said.
Don’t let the voids
in confusions of space
lead you directions
that take you from Grace.
Sometimes what’s seen
is just but a sight
sometimes transparent
of its wrong and right.
Let Jesus help you
as voids come your way
and He’ll enlighten
your fullest display.
Seen then as blessings
when voids come to be
they will be wonders
as peace given free.

Haiku
Nov 5, 2011

Life is a journey
with a few rocks in the road
that make us stronger.

Looking for flowers
might bring about a few thorns
while you are looking.

When watching the clouds
you might see a few pictures
that you recognize.

Visions of Christmas
are sometimes a few snowflakes
falling from the skies.

Tomorrows dreamers
are the fuel from yesterdays
blossomed in today.

Sometimes the answers
present themselves as problems,
but they are needed.

Placing a bookmark
on all of our aches and pains
will just bring you down.

Leaves on the trees fall
as the weather turns colder
bringing forth snowflakes.

Right now might seem sad,
but it will pass with minutes
as seconds move on.

Deep in confusion
is sometimes enlightenment
when you ask questions.

Our earth goes around
as it brings us the seasons
springtime to winter.

Onlooking people
will sometimes just stand and stare
without a reason.

A brainstorm might come
when confusion is alive
with new thoughts to think.

Winters persuasions
come as snowflakes of blessings
found fluffy and white.

Dreams come as blessings
when reality makes you cry.
Thank God for your dreams.

Time is a milestone
that our bodies will be found
counting out each day.

Having and loving
fills the joy of existence
whether loved or lost.

Points of tomorrow
find their ways into today
as we stay wanting.

Christmastimes echoes
are things we have remembered
as our memories.

Hate brings us sadness
that forgiveness can destroy
bringing in a smile.

When in a moment
the pressures could bring regret
so think it over.

Angels of mercy
are sent as friends and blessings
so to help you smile.
