Fallen Soldiers

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How has your memorial weekend been? There’s been
not much of a change for Judy and I. She finally sees
what I was talking about when I said all the days tend
to look the same when you’re retired and unable to go
anywhere LOL. Each day blends with the next day and
they seem to become one long day with night connecting
them together hehehe. I’ve sort of gotten used to it, but
I still get lost time to time wondering what day it is LOL.
Benny has made a big difference in our lives. He’s given
us a reason to get up and go outside. Plus he’s filled that
empty void that we both had from not having a child to
take care of. He’s our little boy. So enough about what
you already know hehehe and onto something else you
might already be aware of. Today is very nice with a
high of 68F degrees which it is at this very moment at
2:36 PM. The rest of the week is supposed to be in the
60’s. Yeppers, it’s nice! We both went out a few days
last week and used our weed eater to cut down some
of the weeds that were making a statement with their
yellow dandelions or whatever hehe. The flowers are
pretty, but they use their beauty to take you by surprise.
The sounds around here are pretty much the same as
every weekend LOL. Our neighbor was mowing at
9 o’clock this morning and their kids were riding their
four wheelers back and forth as they are still at this
very moment. LOL I might get em back, by opening
the window in the living room and beat a little rhythm
on my conga drums Mwahahahaha. I’ve got a feeling
though that it wouldn’t bother them in the least LOL.
I snuck in here a bit ago to keep from waking Benny.
Him and Judy were sleeping so soundly. Benny’s in
his little bed beside our bed laying on his back with
his legs all sprawled out LOL. Judy and I stay up all
night and don’t actually go to bed until maybe 5 or 6
in the morning LOL. When we met, we were both
night owls. I worked night shift for many a decade
and so sleeping at night even before my health issues
was not something that I did. Now I just catch some
rest here and there when my body will allow it, but
Judy sleeps so sound, she doesn’t even realize that
I am up as much that I am hehehe. Benny does, the
poor little guy. It’s because of me that he doesn’t get
much sleep because he wakes up almost every time
I go to the bathroom. Our neighbors are now outside
using their weed eater. Noisy %*&^#% contraption!
Our weed eater is battery operated and doesn’t make
all the racket that a gasoline engine operated one does.
Oh well, I’ll try to ignore it and get this written hehe.
Yet here comes their riding mower now close to my
window. Sheeesh, it’s times like this that I wish I
were deaf hehehe. Hey, I either went deaf or they
both quit running. I’ll try to use that time to write
as fast as I can LOL. Judy and I are still playing
on Farmtown in Facebook. That fills a few hours
of the night with something to do. Ok, so the weed
eater and mower are going AGAIN! Darn, I was
hoping that they had ran out of gas or something.
Hehehehe oh well, on with the journal. I went with
Judy the other day to her dads gravestone and she
put a wreath on it. I took a few pictures of her
as she stood beside his grave. I wish I could go to
my dads grave and do the same, but I can’t and
even if I could, dad told me before he passed away,
that when he died, that his body would be at rest
in the ground, but his spirit and all would be up
above watching over us. I understood what he
was saying. His Earthly body would be nothing
more than an empty shell. So I always talk to my
dad while at times I can feel him standing right
beside me smiling. Death here on Earth is not the
end, but the beginning of another life. One that
has no end. Often the ones that have gone before
us will become as guardian angels watching over
us every day. Life and death have many different
viewpoints to many people. I believe that there
are some when they die that refuse to go where
they should go for fear of where they will end up.
Others I feel that they are just happy being here
watching ones continue their lives. I know many
do not believe in ghosts, but I do, for it is written
in the bible. LOL, I ain’t gonna try to make you
believe my beliefs hehehe. None the less, we this
Memorial Day remember those that fought for
our freedom and protected us when we could not
protect ourselves. Fallen soldiers and ones that
have done their time on Earth. Thank you all
for all of your dedication towards our protection.
Thank you God for the men and women that have
given their lives so that we might live in peace.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin my little
quest back through all that I’ve written here to see
if I can find a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title of today’s brand new poem. So, it’s
away I go to that lil place of my recollection that
I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think with
all of the weed eating and mowing ceased I will
be able to find a good title and it looks like I may
have found one 🙂 Now to see if I can do anything
with it before all of the weed eating and mowing
continues hehehehe Here goes nothing!

Fallen Soldiers

Wars of people
continue on
day to day
with each new dawn.
Many struggle
when they’re older
with the loss of
fallen soldiers.
Time begins as
pages turned
bringing timeframes
we’ve discerned.
Wars of people
that we’ve seen
fallen soldiers
come between.
Bringing peace
with all they do
for their love’s
red, white and blue.

Again, I want to thank all of the soldiers for their
continued support. To the ones that to this day are
still fighting for our freedom, I thank you! Now to
finish this journal. I hope you enjoyed my rambling
and you didn’t let my beliefs to upset you LOL. Hey
we are each human with our own ways of viewing
life and death. I’m reasonably sure that there are
many that view it the same as Judy and I do. God
is always there with His strength through His Son.
Well, I reckon it’s about time for me to be telling
you what I tell you every week and that is, I wrote
some more poems and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more
poems with one of them being a Christmas poem.
Also once again I wrote 22 more haiku for all of
my haiku lovers out there. And so, with that said,
I guess it’s time for me to start searching for that
darned off switch that loves to elude me, but not
before I wish you a most wonderful Memorial day
and a wonderful week. Remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. Now to find that freaking off
switch. Found it hiding under the pillow trying to
silence the noise of the weed eating and mowing 🙂
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Window Escapade

Scenes through a window
make so many see
all of the escapades
given for free.
Yet there’s so often
that many don’t view
scenes through a window
that are so anew.
A window escapade
taken to heart
can make the mornings
much better to start.
Painted with blue skies
and clouds above
A window escapade
can be pure love.
Let loose your sorrows
of yesterdays find
and seek the escapade
of peace of mind.

Pointless Scenes

Time so pointless
finds a way
to with minutes
go astray.
Sometimes anger
in its race
creates wrinkles
on a face.
Pointless thinking
needs arrive
at a better
place alive.
Leaving pointless
just remembered
as what hurry
just dismembered.
Lose the fractions
pointless scenes
and find truth
within its means.

Healing Gold

God’s strong Hands
will surely hold
me each day
as healing gold.
Making sure
that I will learn
when my life
is then in turn.
Many pages
might turn quick
leaving minutes
feeling sick.
The healing gold
of timeless prayer
will be found
with breath of air.
God gives strength
that is foretold
scented with His
Healing Gold.
Days of mishaps
will be found,
but He’ll send
His solid ground.
So when troubles
find you blue
let God show you
life anew.

Star Gazing

Late at night
while seeking views
I find stars
with twinkle blues.
Layered colors
in the skies
seem to pour down
in my eyes.
Some faint rhythms
make their way
as nights ending
coming day.
While star gazing
I find Mars
mixed up with
so many stars.
Even Venus
shows its face
up above
in outer space.
Yes I’m looking
for some sights
while star gazing
in the nights.

A Ridge Over Way

Hills in the distance
are seen as a view
now as a echo
from then thereunto.
The distant thresholds
show a sweet sign
painted with pictures
of God’s Own Design.
A ridge over way
is scented with flowers
displayed as journeys
that springtime empowers.
My eyesight reaches
as best that it will
seeking the beauty
for time to fulfill.
Each with a blossom
of another fine day
seen over yonder
on a ridge over way.

The Tides of Love

So many heartbeats
from God above
are with echoes
of the tides of love.
Footprints in the sand
that many will make
the tides of love
will surely take.
Brought as oceans
of waves of time
the tides of love
creates their design.
Seen as just journeys
that ones misconstrue
the tides of loves
live in me and you.
Yet some might often
just fall in dismay
and miss the blessings
that God sent that day.

Lending Heartbeats

Daylight meets darkness
when moments connect
sometimes then causing
a ripple affect.
Bringing ones sadness
where time completes
and that’s a good time
for lending heartbeats.
Showing compassion
for those not so good,
for they might just be
misunderstood.
Lending a heartbeat
to one with a frown
might in some manner
turn you around.
You might see better
the views of each day
how lending heartbeats
can better display.
For in the future
when time then completes
you might find reasons
for lending heartbeats.

Made As A Human

Made as a human
I find that I see
timeless construction
that God did in me.
Each day has journeys
with lessons to learn
made as a human
that I’m to discern.
Often my judgment
is not all that great
and I make burdens
through ones I forsake.
We are each human
with timeless recoil
finding the lessons
through many a toil.
We’re writing journals
with fingers and feet
that are so often
just timeless defeat.
Let not those journals
to fill up with pain.
Find all the lessons
from time and again.
Also seek good things
of which you remember
written in journals
of times burning ember.

Waiting For Snowflakes

Now as I sit here
my memory’s alive
seeking for Christmas
to right now arrive.
Waiting for snowflakes
I sit in wonder
while I am looking now
way over yonder.
Seeking those snowflakes
as white as can be
while I just sit here
just seeking to see.
Waiting for snowflakes
within my sight
I’m seeking Christmas
to also delight.
Christmastime hues
of red, blue and green
lighting up almost
every little scene.
The snow as it billows
floating on down
creating patterns then
found on the ground.
Many will trudge on
through it to find
their Christmas tree
for their Christmastime.
Yet now I sit here
as long as it takes
searching and seeking
waiting for snowflakes.

Shadow Talk

Found in the day
and also the night
is but a shadow
to mimic so right.
Speaking with only
words of its phrase
mimicking only
the nights and the days.
It’s shadow talk
with only a hue
maybe a tree
or maybe just you.
Speaking so slightly
that many will hear
scenes in the night
that fill them with fear.
It’s shadow talk
with only a glance
maybe of wonder
or maybe just stance.
Look on beyond
the shadows display
maybe with answers
of nighttime or day.

Haiku
for May 26, 2012

Today is a page
written as its existence
that we’ll remember.

Bringing your sorrow
into tomorrows journey
will make it the same.

A rosebud will grow
when winter has subsided
and warmth has returned.

People with problems
might seek others with problems
to sometimes compare.

Blissful reunions
come as shadows remembered
not as what is now.

Belonging to now
needs you to leave yesterday
and live in today.

Drawing a flower
on a white piece of paper
can become alive.

A moments dispute
can cause unending sorrow.
Learn how to forgive.

Beyond a shadow
is a glimmer of something
that may be a tree.

Breathe in softly
and let your worries subside
into life’s lessons.

Bringing the sunlight
into the darkness of sin
makes many nervous.

Changing emotions
can confuse those that know you
and make them to doubt.

Breaking a rhythm
might leave repercussions
that cause ones to fall.

Today is the day
that yesterday just thought of
and knew not its game.

Verifying manners
can leave you in confusion
for many will lie.

While glancing backwards
the view ahead says hello
sometimes with surprise.

Being who you are
needs some determination
with not being swayed.

Answers that we’ve sought
could become many questions
that have no answers.

Breeding a problem
with a circumstantial time
can evolve trouble.

Blisters on fingers
come as lessons that we feel
and teachers of time.

A feather floating
is the essence of a heart
that many don’t see.

Vigorous training
can leave you without a breath.
Learn how to relax.

The Miracles

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How’s life treating you? It’s been not too bad up here.
The weather has been fairly nice. It’s rained off and on,
but for the most part, the temperatures have been cool.
It’s 80F degrees right now at 2:15 PM and supposed to
get up to 81. Tomorrow’s the same then it’s back down
to 69F degrees for Tuesday. It’s supposed to reach the
80 degree mark one more time Thursday and then back
to the norm of mid 70’s and upper 60’s. Yet, 80 degrees
isn’t all that bad. Benny’s stolen my tennis shoe again
and carried it into the living room LOL. How in the world
was that little guy able to carry my big old size 13’s hehe?
My shoes almost weigh as much as him LOL. He always
steals my house shoes, but they aren’t that heavy and he
doesn’t have any problem. He doesn’t chew them up. He
just likes to have them near him in his little fortress of
solitude under the coffee table hehehe. He’s silly, but we
love him hehehe. I’ve been visiting with my neighbors
off and on and they’re nice people. The ones behind me
and beside me have little kids and Benny loves to watch
them running and playing. I sure miss my old neighbors
Brian and Rachel. We used to go fishing often and fly
his RC planes so I could video tape them. Maybe some
time this summer he’ll visit or Judy and I will manage
to find their house to visit them. In any sense, I’m sure
this summer will be filled with things to do. I’m sure
that Judy and I will ever so often go for photo drives
to find some good scenery. I thank God for all of the
wonderful landscapes that God has given to photograph
and enjoy. There are so many of us that will not see
the beauty due to their own closed mindedness. If you
are unable to get out and look then look for all of the
blessings within. There are many days that neither
Judy nor I were able to go outside and walk around
and play with Benny, but on the days we can, we do.
On those ailing days one of us will at least sit outside
for a while with Benny. Benny loves me to get in the
floor with him and wrestle with him. LOL I just need
a crane to pick me up out of the floor when I’m done.
He loves to sleep with us, but after a while hops down
off of the bed and heads for his own little bed in the
floor. There’s nothing much changed in the Pearce’s
household. Nope, in many peoples eyes we might
be a bit boring hehehe, but we’re happy. We play
on our farms in Farmtown and we watch all of our
favorite TV shows. We both got out yesterday and
weed whacked for a while with our battery operated
weed eater. It’s fairly light so we are able to use it
for a short while. We at least got the worst of the
weeds cut before the battery in it and us ran down.
Hehehe we were both a tad worn, but happy that
the weeds are cut. We might get out this evening
and finish the job if we’re up to it LOL. Right now
my legs feel like mush, but it won’t stop me from
walking, but it might slow me from running hehe
which I might add is something I don’t do well and
as a matter of fact never have being an asthmatic.
I try to semi run and play with Benny, but I look
like a rusted robot trying to run hehehehehehehe.
Yet I thank God every day for the gifts of which
he has given us. God has given Judy and I many
gifts which one of them is our little Benny. Neither
Judy nor I can now visualize our lives without him.
Benny has become our little boy that we love and
thank God daily for. Some of our blessings might
not be so pronounced, but they are there none the
less. Be thankful for even the smallest gifts in life.
Learn to look through praising eyes and see all of
the miracles that God has put into your life. Often
a disaster turns into a miracle, for it gives us the
motivation to move forward or look elsewhere.
Often disasters will pull many together that other
wise would not of had anything to do with one
another. Look for the blessings. Now with that
said, I think it’s time for me to be taking my little
stroll down words I’ve written through all of my
recollection to try and find a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s brand new
poem. So it’s away I go to that little place I like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I might of
stumbled upon a good title. Now let’s see if I’m
able to put together some words in form of a poem
using it LOL. Here goes nothing.

The Miracles

The weather phases
into changes
as each day just
rearranges.
All the pictures
seen each day
might be answers
as we pray.
All the seasons
said and done
are the miracles
from God’s son.
Through His Father
Adonai
all the miracles
multiply.
Look now daily
and see true
all the miracles
in your view.

So, there ya go! Did I bore ya to tears with all of my
rambling hehehe? Did you get anything out of the poem?
If anything, I gave ya something to do hehehe and when
you finish you can go back to whatever you were doing.
LOL so I wonder which of you stopped reading before
you ever got to the poem hehehe? It don’t matter to
me 🙂 If I gave at least one of you a smile today then I
did my job. Oh yea, I need prayer again for my friend
Tiny/Donald. His cancer has returned active. Please put
him in your prayers. Now I do believe it’s time for me
to tell you what I tell you every week and that is, I wrote
some more poems and haiku. 10 more poems with one
of them being a Christmassy poem. Also I wrote once
again 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.
I hope some of my writings bring you enlightenment
and joy. Now it’s time for me to begin my search for
that confounded off switch, but not before I wish you
a most wonderful God filled week. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now to find that off switch.
Found it making silly sounds in the blades of the fan 🙂
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Withered Feelings

Seasons journeys
there and to
withered feelings
give a view.
Sometimes sadness
in the seasons
comes with minutes
unknown reasons.
Painted doorways
that we see
can be sometimes
not happy.
Let your feelings
withered frames
find some peace
where God attains.
Withered feelings
might then turn
to some good
you can discern.

Peaceful Shadows

Nows reflections
might be seen
as a shadows
peaceful dream.
Scented doorways
in the light
peaceful shadows
make a sight.
Scenes assorted
with a hue
oh so peaceful
thereunto.
With a shadows
moments glance
there might be
a slight romance.
Portioned lightly
in the day
as God’s blessings
in a way.
Peaceful shadows
now and then
can make blessings
to begin.

Simplistic Value

When you’re demanding
more than your share
see how your value
might not be fair.
Often our wantings
are not so good,
for we’re not seeking
what that we should.
Simplistic value
is but a page
written with lesser
of center stage.
Look and see truly
how that you are
with your own value
now and afar.
See how so simply
you can achieve
things so much better
than wanting can weave.

The Sky Above

While I was watching

the sky above
gave more to apply.
Winds of change
blew here and there
the sky above
a day so fair.
All the scenes
I searched to see

gave free to me.
Scented echoes
in the day
blew as winds
of every way.
The sky above
gave me a sight

How and Why

Timeless journeys
filled with clues
how and why
with different shoes.
Many people
walk each day
with their will
and in their way.
How and why
so many ask
how ones do
their daily tasks.
Many questions
that we find
are but only
in our mind.
So now learn to
not deny
that we all ask
how and why.

A Dreamers Moments

Found in a world
of dreamers alive
there are some moments
that do survive.
Scenes with raspberries
on some ice-cream
are but the moments
of a dreamers dream.
Found as sweet blessings
painted on dew
a dreamers moments

Decked out with flowers
sweetest to smell
with every color

that it casts.

Some Say Christmas

Hope is a blessing
given for free
day to day surely
from history.
Today we have choices
wrong also right
from our humanity
that some delight.
Some say Christmas
is just a day
made to give presents
or just display.
Christmas is more than
things just to view.
It’s a special time
that God gave to you.
He gave us Jesus
to help us to see
a life that is better
and so Heavenly.
Don’t be so stupid
that you lose your place
forgiven by Jesus
and saved by Grace.

Haiku
for May 20, 2012

Life is a journey
that many will lose focus
and fall to the ground.

Losing perception
creates a doorway through time
built on confusion.

Pouring emotions
becomes an unending flow
if not watched closely.

Today’s memories
come alive in the future
as many echoes.

Choices that we choose
sometimes bring us much turmoil,
but lessons are learned.

Because of shadows
we see ourselves as we walk
and can use those sights.

Hidden skeletons
can become future problems
if they’re not dealt with.

Yesterdays problems
can become tools for today
if you will wise up.

Springtime awakens
with the essence of flowers
and flutter of birds.

Windows of today
will often get clouded up
with our own despair.

Leaves blow in the breeze
as the wind rushes on through
with its moments trail.

Venting your anger
can prevent an explosion
that needs not occur.

Seeking tomorrow
can lose sight of now today,
so deal with right now.

Glassy eyed mornings
can make the day to be bad.
Look with clearer eyes.

Becoming a helper
needs you first to help yourself.
Let Jesus help you.

Many see answers
as more questions then to ask.
Figure some things out.

Teaching one to fish
will help him if he learns how
and uses the tools.

People will judge you
no matter where that you go,
so get over it.

Deep under water
many mysteries are found
without an answer.

Baggage that’s carried
can become a great burden
preventing new things.

Glistening sunsets
give a welcome to nightfall
flavored with starlight.

Drinking your sorrows
will guarantee you sadness,
so find Jesus joy.

God By Our Side/Mothers So Tenderly

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
and
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

So how’ve ya been? It’s been fairly nice up this way with
a lot of rain. Judy put Benny out this morning so he could
go potty and he came in drenched LOL. She let him back
in and he shook rain water all over the place hehehe and
then came looking for me. I was in the bathroom at the
time, but heard the epidemic and grabbed up the towel to
dry him off when I came out. I finally got him dried off as
much as I could while he laid in my lap, then he wanted
to come up and lay with us. He’s such a cutie. He’s still
laying in there with Judy, but Judy’s on the phone to her
youngest daughter (Helena). She called to wish Judy a
Happy Mothers Day. Not much has changed up this way.
Judy and I are still doing our regular stuff. Playing with
Benny and doing all of our Farmtown farms on facebook.
Yes we still play our hidden object games from time to
time as well as always watch our favorite TV programs.
We watched My Ghost Story last night. That is one of
our favorites along with Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures
and many more. Wipeout is soon to come back on with
new episodes. We both love to watch that. LOL Judy’s
getting chewed up by Benny. I can hear her while she’s
on the phone to Helena. It sounds like she’s fixing to
come in here with him hehehe. You’d think it was too
late to be in bed, but we don’t get to bed on most days
until early in the morning LOL. Both of us are nightowls.
Well her and Benny are in here now and I held him in
my lap for a bit. I had to hand him over to Judy so that
I could finish this freaking journal LOL. He loves to
be held. I think I created a bond between him and I the
day we went to get him from the airport. Benny rode
the whole 2 hours home sitting in my lap. Now he feels
like he belongs there hehehe. Now Benny is laying in
his little bed in the floor beside me and Judy. Ok so
it’s onwards with the journal. I wrote my mom a little
Mother’s Day poem and sent it to her last night. I hope
she likes it. She’s the greatest. I love to call and talk
to her sometimes just about silly stuff. We both laugh
and cut up on the phone. I wish I could see her, but
traveling isn’t in our funds at the moment. I hope we
one day manage to save up enough to make a trip to
Texas one day. That would be great. I’d actually
like for us to be able to drive there so I could bring
my conga drums and play some music with some of
my musician buds. Oh well, God only knows what
the future will hold. Judy and I both miss our trips
to Port Aransas TX. We both love it down there.
Maybe one day. For now, Judy and I are happy
to just have these great times together with Benny.
God knew we needed Benny and Benny needed us
and so He helped us find him and put him into our
lives. Now neither Judy nor I can visualize our
lives without Benny. He has become part of our
family. Our little boy 🙂 He loves to ride in the car
and look out the windows hehehe and when I role
down the window he loves to feel the breeze hehehe.
He’s another reason that if we came back to Texas
we would prefer to drive. We wouldn’t want to
leave him behind. So that’s about all from way up
here in New Limerick Maine. Right now at 2:44
in the afternoon it’s 49F degrees. It’s supposed to
get up to 53 a bit later, but that ain’t bad. God
has been good to us. Judy and I have had our
share of problems, but nothing that we couldn’t
handle with God by our side. I’ve lived through
a lot worse times in my life. We had some major
struggles that began the day we moved up here,
but we survived. With God always watching over
us, there is nothing that we cannot handle. Life
might seem at times too hard, but looking back
on all that I have been through, I can see that I
have survived much worse times. You might also
be able to recall some things you’ve been through
that were a lot worse than what today presents.
Use that knowledge as a tool to get you through
today and tomorrow. Now, I think it’s time for
me to once again take my lil trip back through all
that I’ve written here to see if I find a good word
or phrase that I can use for the title of today’s
brand new poem. So it’s away I go to that place
of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I found a title
in something I wrote just a few lines back LOL.
Hope it works. Here goes…. Oh yea, I might
also write a Mothers Day Poem to go with it 🙂

God By Our Side

Limited vision
that many perceive
find ones to wonder
to stay or to leave.
Sometimes what’s seen
is just but a phase
painted in pictures
of the coming of days.
Let not your worry
to tarry your stride.
Much can be better
with God by our side.
Look beyond sadness
and see what is true.
Find all the blessings
that live within you.
With God by our side
today can be great
even through problems
that many debate.
Let your days always
find Jesus inside,
for things can be better
with God by our side.

Ok so as I said, here’s a Mothers Day poem
for all the moms 🙂

Mothers So Tenderly

In the beginning
a mother of time
carried a baby
so wondrous Divine.
Then as the pages
were turned to today
mothers still carry
their love in that way.
As time moves on
then surely they know
their little babies
will most surely grow.
Becoming people
with personalities
often that came from
their own history’s.
Mothers through time
have carried this way
giving their love
saying that it’s OK.
Kissing our booboo’s
when we are in dirt.
Mothers so tenderly
kiss where it’s hurt.
I thank God for moms
that show us their love
that was God given
from Heaven above.
Now all I’m really
wanting to say
is thank you dear mothers
for then and today.

Ok so there ya go. Two poems for this morning hehehe.
There’s not much else to tell ya about. My sister in law
Barbara is doing fine. The cancer has ceased and she
is back at work and looking great. Her hair is growing
back. My mom is doing well. She spends a lot of time
visiting her grandchildren in Texas and playing all of her
hidden object games LOL. I love you mom and hope to
see you sometimes soon. Maybe this summer you and
Peggy can make a trip up here. Peggy said she wanted
to come up again and spend more time so she could see
more of the scenery around here and visit with Judy and
I. Mom and her also want to meet Benny hehehehehe.
I know they’ll love him. Even Judy’s younger brother
Ricky fell in love with him and he’s not a dog lover 🙂
Benny loved him too. He whined until Ricky petted
him LOL. Well, I guess it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you every week and that is, I wrote some
more poems and haiku. 10 more poems and 22 more
haiku. Nope, no Christmas poems this week. Maybe
next week hehehe, but then Christmas is 7 months
away. It’ll be here before ya know it HoHoHo hehe.
So now it’s time for me to be searching for that old
off switch that always loved to play hide and seek,
but before I do that I must wish you a wonderful
God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and
we do too. Now to find that off switch. Found it
in there with Benny piled up beside him snuggling.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Better Ways To Choose

If you’ve gone there on your own,
God’s Son will be there too.
You might think He’s disappeared,
but He’ll be there for you.
A simple prayer amidst the day
will give to you a way,
directions from your moments will
that seemed to go astray.
Lessons from our own mistakes
will become tools to use
helping us through now and then
with better ways to choose.

Points Remembered

Points in time
connecting true
are resolved
to me and you.
Things we’ve done
so long ago
help us now
with what we know.
Points remembered
bad and good
help us see
what all we should.
Yet it takes us
looking true
to see the best
for me and you.
Often sadness
will be found
when some times
will come around,
but then surely
one day seen
it will be just
a bad dream.
Something real
another day
that is now so
far away.

Day of Prayer

A peaceful evenings
day of prayer
helps to bring
a breath of air.
A simple moment
kneeling down
while then finding
solid ground.
The scenes around you
will be changed
a little less then
so deranged.
Through your prayer
to God above
you will find
a lot of love.
Let your anger
fall from you
as you seek
a better view.
A peaceful evenings
day of prayer
will then be
God’s love and care.

A Times Surmise

Scenic wonders
thereunto
sometimes find
a different view.
Different days
of times around
all you saw
might not be found.
A day of clouds
up in the skies
might just be
a times surmise.
Scenes all changing
with our gaze
with times surmised
of different days.
Times remembered
that we saw,
now might be
a different awe.

Moments Grey

As today
comes to an end
look for good
around the bend.
Don’t just find
a moments sorrow.
Find the best
within tomorrow.
Let not shadows
of today
to become all
moments grey.
See beyond
the sadness seen
and find goodness
in a dream.
When tomorrow
does arrive
try to see
with better eyes.
Look beyond
the moments grey
and then make
a better day.

Storms of Morning

Minds of wonder
glimmer on
storms of morning
found at dawn.
New beginnings
fair and true
create mornings
every view.
Invisible links
that we can’t see
connect each day
to you and me.
Storms of morning
can be seen
as a blessings
running stream.
It’s our vision
that might find
storms of morning
worried mind.
Let the storm clouds
that you see
become good
throughout debris.
See the goodness
to become
storms of mornings
shining sun.
Peace will venture
into sight
giving views
a different light.

The Dreamers Dream

When time falls away
with only a sound
found in the dreamers
dream to be found
scenes are described
as times in a way
the dreamers dream
of another fine day.
Within the depths
of a time submarine
many will find then
the dreamers dream.
Scented as dewdrops
with mornings arrival
the dreamers dream
is there for survival.
But often the dreamers
without seeing true
end up with sadness
in an ocean of blue.
Don’t end your dreaming,
but also make sure
you see the truth
in life there and pure.
Look for the goodness
that’s found in a dream,
but don’t be a dreamer
in a lie submarine.

Every Time

Distant sounds
I hear each day
seem to change
in their own way.
Some are cars
just driving by
and then others
are in the sky.
Birds just singing
there and to
up above
in the sky of blue.
Sometimes clouds
will dawn the day
with their decor
on display.
Every time
I look to see
I find a change
a slight degree.
Sights and sounds
that I partake
are the changes
days will make.
Sometimes changes
in my view
become seas
so deep and blue.
Some remembered
things in time
come to me
as God’s design.
Yet sometimes
might seem as Hell,
but they’ll pass
in just a spell.

Normal People

There’s no thing
which perfectly
makes us all
the best to see.
We all have flaws
as days go by,
but so many
just deny.
Normal people
are what’s found
when I daily
look around.
Yet perspective
is the view
when ones say
they don’t like you.
Bad and good
from you and I
is discerned
by Adonai.
In His view
we live each day
some will lie
and some will pray.
Normal people
need atone
for each daily
stepping stone.
Troubles come
that some will choose
causing many
different views.
Yet forgiveness
can be found
through Lord Jesus
Solid Ground.
Don’t let anger
drive your soul,
for it might then
take control
and become a
destiny
leading to pure
Hell to see.

Today’s Shadows

Seasons of sorrows
might be all you see
coming from all of
your history,
but today’s shadows
can become the view
making some happiness
to then come true.
Today’s shadows
only have power
if you allow them
a minute an hour.
Let today’s season
become what is true
living and breathing
right now so anew.
Lies will be just shadows
of yesterdays glance
maybe if you give
today now a chance.
Surely some sadness
from yesterdays ploy
will beat remembrance
that will annoy,
but telling truly
what all that is done
you can find joyful
with each rising sun.

Haiku
for May 12, 2012

Days will come speaking
words in the essence of time
with minutes to see.

Confusions stages
come as pages that are read
and not understood.

Alone is a time
that we may each find sometimes
as a mere blessing.

Journals are written
when echoes are acknowledged
as past that is done.

Left over dreams
from yesterdays we’ve wished for
can become a smile.

Temporary heartache
can become an eternity
if it’s not released.

Morning times flowers
come with displays of colors
that springtime presents.

Wintertime’s dreamers
think of snowflakes of Heaven
falling down with grace.

Without a moment
a timeframe might fade away
leaving emptiness.

Lessons sometimes hurt
when they come from the mistakes
we chose to repeat.

Because of today
yesterday is just a time
that has surely passed.

Scenes from our lifestyles
can become as some nightmares
with many regrets.

Peace is a value
counted with our tomorrows
beginning each day.

Nobodies sadness
can continue forever
if you let it loose.

Trivial moments
come as patterns we’ve perceived
with many viewpoints.

Someone’s bitter pills
might be imagination
found only with fears.

Wintertime’s snowflakes
are but only a glimmer
of dreams of Christmas

A page full of time
with minutes that are written
can become a book.

Today’s mere journey
begins with a few footsteps
that we each must take.

In a submarine
the portholes are as hopeful
to see passed the depths.

A visionary
sees different colored styles
with flowers and trees.

A meadowlarks song
comes as serenading sounds
that are filled with peace.

Heaven Awaits Us

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been? The weather up this ways has been
rather nice here lately. Did you see the moon last night?
Last night and tonight are supposed to be it’s closest view
in 2012 with it 30% brighter. Judy and I went out and we
took some pictures of it last night, but due to a few clouds,
it looked a tad hazy, but none the less big and bright. We
took our tripods outside to try and get better pictures. Yet
even with our cameras on them, the moon was still a tad
hazy in its view. Judy got a great picture of Benny on top
of his doghouse looking at the moon. Benny is sitting in my
lap right now and it’s extremely hard to type around him 🙂
I let him out a while ago so he could go potty and when
I let him back in just a minute ago, he wanted to sit in my
lap. Ok, now I’ve laid him in Judy’s chair. He can lay
there. Judy’s still in bed asleep. We didn’t actually go to
bed until around 6 o’clock this morning LOL. It was one
of those nights. We both spent a lot of time on all of our
Farmtown farms in Facebook. They gave yet another
enlargement to get as well as 4 more facilities. Yeppers
it’s fun time at the Pearce’s hehehehe. Hehehe I just
took some pictures of Benny sleeping in Judy’s chair.
He opened his eyes after I was done as if to say, is that
quite necessary. He hates the camera flash LOL and
he’s not alone hehehe. I’m usually chasing flash dots
after a good few camera flashes LOL. He just got up to
go and wake up Judy hehehe. I can hear him whining
as he jumps up and tries to wake her. He gave up LOL
and is now laying in the floor on her side of the bed 🙂
I guess he’s gonna get some more sleep as well. They
both may get up soon. OK so Benny just came back in
here with me to lay in his little bed beside me. So it’s
onwards with the journal. Today it’s supposed to get
up to 61F degrees. Right now at 12:30 noon it’s 53F.
It’s a tad cloudy right now. It looks like this is as much
springtime that we’ll get LOL. I feel for those south
of us with the 90F degree temperatures although it’s
looking like Texas and some others might get some
relief this week starting Tuesday. I’m sure my mom
will be thrilled hehehe. I just looked and compared
to our 53F at 12:30 noon it’s 84F in Texas hehehehe.
Talk about a 30 degree spread LOL. Enjoy every
day that God gives to you. It could always be worse.
Look for the good within each second, minute, hour
and day. Let not the glimmers of sadness to invoke
their hold upon you and keep you down. Let Jesus
help you to smile. I’m sure that if you search your
surroundings enough you can find a happy thought
to smile about. I know, we all lose loved ones at
some point and time in our lives, but they are not
gone for good, for Heaven awaits us all when our
time is upon us and we will all be joined once again
with family and friends. Enjoy what time you have
here in your physical form on Earth. There is much
beauty to be seen and much joy to be found. All you
need to do is maybe look beyond a minutes moment.
Let God show you many wonders that you might of
not seen due to cloudy eyes. And now with that said,
I reckon it’s time for me to be taking my little trip
back through all that I’ve written here to see if I can
find a good word or phrase that might work well 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 believe I may have
found a good title, but the proof is in the pudding.
So “Here we go” in my best Jackie Gleason voice.
Hehehe not so good of an imitation though LOL.

Heaven Awaits Us

So many people
see never a day
as a great blessing
of God given way.
So many only
find in their view
things of depression
with nothing brand new.
Heaven awaits us
if we will just find
Jesus Christ surely
inside of our mind.
Let lose of sorrows
and see all the joy
that can be moments
your heart can deploy.
Lose all the thinking
of negative thought.
Heaven awaits us
which Jesus has bought.

Ok, so there ya go! I hope that I said something that
made you smile 🙂 I hope the poem helped you to find
peace in the moments. Yes, I too get lost in depression
time to time being human as I am. I also have to take
a breather and remember that it’s just a moment and
not let it to govern every thought. I just tossed Benny
a doggy treat. Hehehe, he’s apparently not hungry.
Oh well, I’m sure he’ll eat it in a bit. OK, so before
I get off in rambling mode again, I need to send out
a few prayers to some of my friends that have loved
ones in a bad state of health. My old buddy Gene’s mom
is in bad health and may soon be with God. Also my
good friend Emery is in need of prayer for his wife,
for she has brain cancer. Please keep these in your
prayers. Now it’s time for me to be telling you what
I tell you every week and that is, I wrote some more
poems. 10 more poems with one being Christmassy
to go with all of my other Christmas poems. Also yes
once again I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku
lovers out there 🙂 I hope you enjoy a few of my poems
and haiku which I might add are one of the same, just
different styles LOL. Now it’s about time for me to
be searching for that old off switch, but not before I
wish you all a most wonderful and God filled week.
Now it’s time for me to find that off switch. Found it
making as bubbles in my Mountain Dew can LOL.
Time for another 🙂 Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Life Is A Season

Heart wrenching thoughts
from decades now gone
you might need let go.
Memories of onslaughts
from times other dawn
you might need unsew.
Timeless tomorrows
of histories pages
might need be turned.
Let all your sorrows
of momentous ages
be lessons learned.
**
Life is a journey
leaving footprints in time
made by the echoes
of an imaginary mind.
Scenes that we see
in the journeys ahead
might be just visions
inside of our head.
So don’t let shadows
of your yesterdays
be all your seeing now
within your gaze.
**
Life is a season
we often will find
when time is gone.
Within our reason
our time after time
might need move on.

Limitations

Standard moments
situations
sometimes have their
limitations.
Standard scenic
places found
limitations
do astound.
From the minutes
that we see
limitations
are the key.
Painted moments
day to day
see no limits
in their way.
Yet some scenic
limitations
paint a around
investigations.
Many looking
for a clue
for the limits
in their view.
So now when you
time to time
see some limits
in your mind
look beyond the
moments scene
and see all
beyond the green.

Summertime’s Breeze

When morning breezes
come in each day
I get the feeling
it’s summertimes way.
Summertimes breeze
is an echo I find
now within displays
of days of springtime.
Mayflowers grow now
here there and to
while they are joined with
May’s morning view.
June will soon be here
with flowers and trees
then will be the dawning
of summertimes breeze.
Displayed as windows
that swing and then sway
there will be the ending
of springtime’s array.

With Today

Choices and voices
said and then done
share with today
a new then begun.
Signs of the times
from here thereunto
gives us the choices
with all that we do.
Amazing displaying
minutes of time
can often be what
makes up your mind.
Marking and barking
at every little scene
leaves ones not knowing
what all that you mean.
So don’t let moments
to always seem grey.
Look for the good
that came with today.

Lines Are Painted

Disheartened people
often will choose
ways of decisions
that often lose.
The lines are painted
as separation
filled up with anger
and devastation.
Then with that thinking
your bitterness grows
leaving just sadness
filled full of woes.
Don’t let a problem
that Lord God can solve
become lines painted
at moments resolve.
Let God to help with
what that you’re feeling
before lines are painted
with friendship concealing.

Oceans Away

An island remembered
on some distant shore
leaves me now dreaming
and wanting some more.
With oceans away
are memories of mine
of waves crashing in
with a wonderful time.
Now only pictures
bring back that scene
that is now only
just a mere dream.
While oceans away
live on deep inside
I find that those times
shall always reside.
As minutes paintings
now hanging with care
the oceans away
are now a mere prayer.

Dreaming of Christmas

While time’s concluding
what springtime prevails
I see some dreams of
Christmas details.
Dreaming of Christmas
while spring is here
gives me a feeling
of season sincere.
Watching the seasons
all changing on cue
I find I’m waiting for
Christmastimes view.
Seasonal pictures
each day now are found
as many paintings
that are hung all around.
Yet still I’m dreaming
of what all I’ll see
when Christmas gets here
as white as can be.

Lessons From Then

Learning lessons
as we move
through our lives
each daily groove,
sometimes is a
pain in stride
with the lessons
not denied.
Lessons from then
and ahead
come as tools
so daily fed.
Yet some people
only choose
not to learn
but only lose.
Use those lessons
then and done
to make better
things begun.

Big Blue Marble

This big blue marble
round and true
floats in space
with daily view.
Each day changes
as a face
while this planet
floats in space.
Sunshine shining
then the stars
with the views of
Venus ad Mars.
This big blue marble
we’re upon
shows us dusk
and also dawn.
Ones may see it
as their view
as a marble
round and blue.
Yet we see it
on the ground
as the Earth
so big and round.

With a Glimmer

Single fractions
on display
might be found
a shade of grey.
With a glimmer
they might grow
to a time
that might just glow.
Just as starlight
in the haze
seen by many
in the days,
nighttime comes
and makes them shine
as such beauty
so divine.
So when sadness
comes in view
look for glimmers
good and true.

Haiku
for May 5, 2012

Life might seem bitter,
but gladness is to be found
if you will just look.

Flowers awaken
with the brushstrokes of dewdrops
as morning arrives.

A puppy’s heartbeat
is of love and forgiveness,
the way we should be.

Miracles of time
come as glistening blessings
so often misread.

Some ghost of today
are hidden in the shadows
of all of our fears.

Thinking too deeply
can create an eruption
inside of your mind.

Moments conclusive
might need a bit more searching
to find other clues.

Today is a page
that is needing to be turned
from our yesterdays.

Looking down too long
can leave you with much sadness.
Look up for a while.

By acting on now
a choice that you decided
could be bad or good.

Actions speak loudly
leaving many wondering
what’s really true.

Scenes of now today
might seem sort of disheartened,
but they’ll pass with time.

Saturday’s viewpoints
come as fractions of sunshine
sometimes as sunburns.

Blissful horizons
take the shape of many prayers
that God has answered.

Playing a fools game
leaves life amidst much turmoil
through stupidity.

Shadows of anger
can come and destroy our lives
if we do not pray.

Conjoining wrongness
can start a life of its own
if you’re not careful.

Living for today
leaves yesterday as lessons
for your tomorrows.

Moving a mountain
is done with timeless patience.
Don’t try to rush it.

Fear of the unknown
becomes an hindrance for life
if you let it thrive.

Journeys throughout time
become mysteries to see
that time has prevailed.

Wanting others things
can turn into a disease
that infects your life.
