A Journey Back

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s that time of the week once again for me to find all of my
rambling thoughts and try and put them into words. So here’s
this weeks journal. How have you been? We’ve been doing
fairly well keeping our heads above water hehe. Yes it’s been
raining a lot. It’s 79 F degrees right now at 5:30 PM. Not too
bad. I’ve got our air conditioner settings on dry mode and it
seems to cool the house nicely. Dry mode is the dehumidify
mode that pulls the humidity out of the air and uses it to cool
the room. It’s more economical than to use the COOL mode
which uses the AC compressor. The boys often lie down in
front of it LOL Milo especially hehehe. OK onto another
topic. The sun is shining a bit right now, but I’m sure it will
soon be hidden once again behind the rain clouds. I can see
them blowing in. I’m guessing that summer has finally made
it for its appearance up here. I took a drive yesterday in a
rainstorm to get us some more eggs from Sunnyside Farm.
Judy made a peanut butter cake Friday night and used all
but one of our eggs LOL. I’ll tell ya what, that cake taste
mighty fine. Peanut butter frosting with chocolate cake.
We’ve almost eaten it all up hehehe. Oh yea, my friends
Ron and Mandy at Century Computer in Texas were
able to get my info off of my external hard drive and put
it on a new hard drive. I have it now and am very happy
to have it back. I’m waiting to get paid so I can send my
old PC to them to see if they can repair it as well. If they
can, then I’ll go back to using it and only use this PC for
a back up system being it does work sort of LOL. Well,
now what is there to talk about? We’re getting ready to
give the boys another haircut, being their hair seems to
be growing rather fast LOL. Don’t want them to have a
heatstroke. Benny’s birthday is coming up on July 16th.
He’ll be 2 years old. He’s getting older, but surely not
acting like it LOL. He still acts like that pup that we got
March 10 2012. He’ll always be our little boy. Milo will
always be our old man, Benny’s big bro. Milo will be 9
October 31. They are the greatest brothers even if they
aren’t blood related hehehe. Well, the sunshine is almost
gone now as the clouds are filling up the skies once again.
Oh well, come on rain. I’m sure that many of you would
love to have some of this rain 😉 I like it because it cools
it down a bit. The temperature has already dropped to
76 F degrees at 6 PM. No complaint from me hehehehe.
Both of the boys are lying down in the floor behind me.
Benny is lying in a doggy bed and Milo is lying on the
floor all stretched out LOL. The floor must feel cool
against his body being we ain’t got carpet in this room.
I took some nice pictures this week being I caught a few
without raindrops hehehe. OK so now the sun is gone
and firmly hidden behind the clouds and the temperature
has dropped to 75 F degrees at 6:17 PM. It’s cooling
down rather quickly wouldn’t ya say LOL! Milo has
gotten up out of the floor and gotten in his doggy bed
behind me. Their beds move around the room quite
a bit due to them relocating them to wherever they
want to be at that moment LOL. They have dog beds
all throughout the house. A couple in the living room
and 3 or 4 in our bedroom hehehe. They spend a lot
of time dragging them to wherever they want to sleep
at that moment LOL. Yes, they are very silly and
yes we condone it LOL. It hurts no one! So what else
is going on around the Pearce’s Place? That is a good
question! We have been giving Farm Town a break
quite a bit and only doing it every other day or so :).
I have not been feeling very well and Judy has also
been under the weather a bit. I can barely walk due
to my legs and ankles being swollen. My ankles are
always swollen hehehe so that ain’t nothing new. Oh
well, I’m grateful to be able to walk at all. It doesn’t
stop me from going for walks to take pictures hehehe.
I just stow the pain and enjoy the view. The weather
might be playing a part in my legs aching LOL, but my
ankles have been this way for many years. I fractured
them about 10 years ago and due to my weird anatomy
they will not heal. The doctors couldn’t do anything to
help, so onwards I go hehehe. Oh well, enough of
that LOL. Now onto another topic. The boys have
moved around a bit hehehe. Milo is lying right behind
me on the floor again and Benny has left the room to
go to the living room and play. He loves to play with
his toys in the living room. I just now got up to go to
the kitchen to get Judy and I a soda water and Benny
followed me back in here. He’s now eating some dried
dog food that we leave out for them to eat if they get
hungry. They prefer their Ole Roy or Mighty Dog,
but the dried food keeps them sustained until time to
be fed. They just came over to me wanting me to pet
them. LOL they get jealous if I pet one and not the
other, so the push and shove begins to see who can
get closest and be petted hehehe. Ok so I stopped
petting them both and they are lying down in the
floor again. I’ve gotta be real careful where I roll
my chair or I’m gonna flatten a dog LOL. They are
hungry and it’s time for me to feed them, but it will
have to wait until I finish writing hehehe. Patience
my boys, patience 🙂 This home has most surely
been blessed. We do have our share of problems,
but all in all life is good. I still miss my family and
friends in Texas and thereabouts, but at the moment
I can do nothing about it. Maybe God willing, I can
one day make a journey back south, but it is in His
Hands not mine. As is, we cannot afford it. Yet I do
thank God that we live in this day and age, being if
we were back even as far as the 80’s or beyond we
would not be able to send emails and pictures to our
family and friends which in my book are often one
of the same. Way back before cars and telephones
just a few miles would be like thousands of miles
and many would never see one another. So I am very
thankful to be able to call my mom and friends to
hear their voices and send them emails along with
many pictures and even receive pictures from them.
Otherwise I would be dependent on the mail and
the messages would not get to there destination
until much later dates. We even have chats now
where you can chat with friends on the net that
might even live in another country. Yes we have
our share of problems, but all in all life is good.
The world has always had struggles of one type
or another and at the time they seemed enormous.
Let God fill your heart with His love and learn to
be grateful for the tiniest things. Don’t let others to
take away your smile with their close mindedness
of the joys of life. Seek to see the blessings that
are among us every day. I think the news on TV
focuses way to much on the negative things and
not enough on the good things. Try looking for
the silver linings in the clouds. Now I believe
it’s about time for me to begin my journey back
through all that I’ve written 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 always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I found a title
that I haven’t already used LOL. I hope I can do
something with it hehehe. Here goes!

A Journey Back

Timeless doorways
entered through
soon become my
days anew.
A journey back
with minds detail
finds the past days
very well.
Things forgotten
now recalled
might become
the best auld.
A journey back
to places seen
in my mind
might seem a dream.
When my minutes
seem off track
I refresh with
a journey back.
A simple picture
or video
takes me where
I used to go.
A journey back
brings mornings sun
with the good times
I have done.

So, there ya go. I know it ain’t no 4th of July poem, but
it will have to do. I write whatever comes to my mind and
that was it LOL. Judy and watched some old videos of us
swimming in the swimming pool at the apartments where
we used to live in Texas. We both were transfixed on the
videos for 2 hours just watching us swimming and floating
in the pool. Yes, we miss those days, but they are gone,
yet not forgotten. We watched a video of us down at Port
Aransas splashing around in an outdoor hot tub hehehehe.
That brought back a lot of good memories as well. Judy
said screen capture a few pictures, so I managed to get
a few good photos out of the videos. We might still one
day make it back to Texas for a visit if it is meant to be.
Yet if we don’t, we have our memories to look back on.
So, now you can see where the poem came from huh 🙂
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 and
haiku. LOL, I wrote them all once again early in the
AM hours this morning hehehe. Yeppers, 10 more
poems and 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. So with that said I reckon I need to begin
my search for that confounded off switch, but surely
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. Hmmm, I see movement behind
my camera. There you are ya little whippersnapper.
You had to pick the smallest camera to hide behind
didn’t ya LOL Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. Hehehe Milo is lying down face first in front
of the fan that is blowing the cool air in here LOL.
He’s not even an inch from the fan hehehehehehe.
Loves that cool air 🙂 Woof Woof Woof!

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

Sundial Shadows

As minutes march onwards
the sundials of time
display their footprints
in their own design.
Telling the stories
of shadows we see
as that of portions
accounted degree.
Those sundial shadows
are often displaying
wrong times of day
that the clouds are inlaying.
Scenes in a rainstorm
are vague in their sight
as sundial shadows
are needing sunlight.
As minutes march onwards
the sundial might seem
that of a fairytale
found in a dream.

Fruits of Life

With the taste dewdrops
our life might display
the fruits of life
of day after day.
Flavors recorded
inside of our mind
are the fruits of life
for our eyes to dine.
Tasty sweet morsels
of each day around
are fruits of life
of which to be found.
Found in the mornings
as dewdrops appeal
the fruits of life
are what we can feel.
Reaching arms opened
to gather the day
the fruits of life
have so much to say.
Words as a moment
that came then to be
as that of dewdrops
for our eyes to see.
Let not those dewdrops
to fall from your view.
Record every moment
as each day anew.

Silent Passage

So many journeys
that we often go
are often hidden
and filled full of woe.
A silent passage
from here unto there
many will wander
without not a prayer.
A silent passage
that connects a time
is often found as
as real crooked line.
Journeys so empty
without God above
might find so silently
then without love.
So with your journeys
don’t be one to blame
your life on others
for reasons you came.
Make your own passage
to be better found
as a true pathway
to God’s solid ground.
Yet if a silent
passage ones see
your journey for Heaven
is better to be.

A New Angel

When death is found
a life has begun
with a new angel
to do what is done.
Gathering blessings
while helping each day
as a new angel
a friend might display.
Truth in the moments
of life unto death
there is a pathway
to a new breath.
A new angel born
as many will die
leaves ones to wonder
why Jesus why.
Yet it’s with passing
that angels are found
as many miracles
then come around.
A new angel comes
when flesh life is gone
becoming as helpers
from dusk unto dawn.

Blessed Land

Our stepping stones
of everyday
are often found
in our dismay.
The blessed land
that God provides
are with choices
bumpy rides.
The wavering steps
that many find
come with beginnings
inside our mind.
The stepping stones
of hand in hand
can lead us to
God’s blessed land.
It’s with our choices
now unto then
to try and be better
with lesser of sin.

Focal Point

While summers winds
come blowing through
our focal point
might be askew.
The many scenes
that summer shows
are sometimes
the wind that blows.
The clouds above
that blow on in
sometimes make
the rains begin.
Our focal point
of summers morn
might become
a bit forlorn.
So search to find
the best to see
a focal point
real Heavenly.

Slumbering Thoughts

Thoughts from a dream world
find many pages
turning as stories
of certain ages.
Slumbering thoughts
are often designed
made up as fiction
within ones mind.
Slumbering thresholds
that many enter
become the dream worlds
found front and center.
All of reality
then fades away
leaving a porthole,
slumber to play.
Slumbering thoughts
will surely awaken
often with finding
dreams they’ve mistaken.
Truth is a pathway
slumbering finds
when it has ended
its sleepy designs.

Crystal Smile

A simple smile
from my true love
is God’s gift
from up above.
This Crystal smile
gleams bright each day
in a simple
wondrous way.
The smile so great
across the room
seems to always
just consume.
Her simple smile
brings light to me
that from God
was given free.
This crystal smile
makes troubles fade
leaving only
glimmers trade.
What was only
just a frown
this crystal smile
turns upside down.

To Judy Pearce
From Me 🙂

Thinking Deep

This tiny room
our doggies sleep
leaves me always
thinking deep.
With every thought
within this room
I can sing
a little tune.
All of my thoughts
become as one
gathered together
under the sun.
While thinking deep
the minutes grow
becoming winters
whitest snow.
The snowy trails
these doggies made
became journeys
Heaven laid.
Now as summer
shows its hue
thinking deep
becomes my view.
Now this family
is to keep
with God’s blessings
thinking deep.

After Night is Done

Now morning’s risen
and here comes the sun
finding the glimmers
after night is done.
Scenes are awakened
with many sounds heard
while hearing morning
as the chirp of a bird.
After night is done
the new day is found
with every glimmer
of each sight and sound.
Transfixing shadows
are sunshine’s delight
while morning comes
with glimmers of night.
Then in the pathways
is late evenings sun
to begin agin then
after night is done.

Haiku
for June 30, 2013

Within a dreamer
holds the hopes for tomorrow
if they are for real.

Journeys take footsteps
where standing still gets no where
leaving just a thought.

With every shadow
there is something making it,
maybe just a tree.

Life is a blessing
needing thankfulness from us
for every moment.

Without any love
our lives would be empty paths,
so thank God for His.

Summer brings us rain
as the afterimage found
when heat is too much.

Long awaited lives
struggle with their perception
of what they’re needing.

Our healing blessings
come from God’s many angels
sometimes as our friends.

Windows of summer
open real wide for sunshine
as ones go swimming.

A letter written
might not be true to the heart
while words often lie.

Lessons from shadows
are often hard to perceive
while they still hold true.

The length of today
is determined by our thoughts
and how we view it.

Life can confuse us
as time passages move on
without an answer.

Soon flowers will bloom
as rain gives sunshine a chance
to breathe life within.

Screens on submarines
have no purpose for a door,
for water flows through.

Meaningless chatter
only fills a room with noise
that often brings sleep.

The seeds of flowers
await their special moment
to rise and blossom.

Two hearts together
can become as one heartbeat
if it is true love.

Many will leave you,
but their hearts may stay with you
as miles separate.

Wanting tomorrow
can cause the loss of today
and all its chances.

Jumbled emotions
often lead to confusion
that time could prevent.

Allowing Jesus
to help with your daily life
can make it better.

The Scenes Unfolding

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have ya been? The weather over this way has been fairly nice.
It’s 70 F degrees right now and supposed to get up to 77 F degrees.
Not too bad for summertime 🙂 Though tomorrow it’s supposed to get
up to 81 F along with a 70 percent chance of thunderstorms and rain.
It looks rainy outside right now with a 40 percent chance of that wet
stuff LOL. Benny and Milo are doing great. They just got finished
eating. I fed them the same time I fixed Judy and some waffles and
sausage. They ate their dog food and still wanted more hehehehehe.
I told em too bad, you’ve had your quota so quit begging and lie
down in your beds. They are now in their beds sleeping peacefully.
Milo snores LOL! Yesterday Judy went back to Birch Point and
spent a few hours with her daughter. It was Mandy’s birthday,
but my old body was in a lot of pain and I was not able to go after
Judy and I putting together a DVD shelf and me moving all of our
stuff around to make room for it. Judy was also feeling the burn,
but she went anyways for a few hours. Benny and Milo missed her
and were listening closely for her to come home. 🙂 When they heard
the car pull up they both went into a frenzy wanting to go out and
greet her LOL. They are our boys 🙂 Oh yea, My friend Ron from
Century Computer in Texas called to tell me that they managed to get
my info off of my external hard drive and put it on a new hard drive.
He said that he saved a copy of it in case I had problems. Anyways,
it is in the mail 🙂 Thank God for that. Now the beginning of July
I will pack up my old computer and ship it to him to see if they can
fix it. That would be awesome. Of course, we are once again low
on funds this month due to doctor bills and all, but I’ll get it to ya
Ron. Hopefully you will be able to get it to working as it should be
working. I’ll type out a note of the problems that I was having with
it and pack it along with the PC. It would be great to have my old
PC up and running again. I will then maybe just set this one aside
and use it only for emergencies, but it all depends on whether you
are able to fix my Outlook Express or not LOL. So, it’s onto yet
another topic. Hmm, what else is happening up this way? It’s been
rather peaceful around here. Milo is feeling a lot better now after
I gave him some milk to ease up the constipation. Most dogs are
lactose intolerant and it acted like Exlax to him LOL. He was
feeling a bit queasy for a day or so and threw up a few times, but
he’s back to his ornery self now. Begging for treats and playing
with Benny hehehe. They often play chase throughout the house.
Boy it looks rainy outside! All I can say is, come on down hehehe.
Judy and the boys just went into the bedroom to watch TV while
I continue writing. She’s watch Sky Wire. Actually she’s watching
the precursor to it where he gives a talk about what he is going
to do. It actually doesn’t come on till 9 PM. I should be all done
with this and have it sent long before then. It’s only 6 PM right
now. The scenes unfolding in our lives every day display how
that God is always at work doing what He sees best to do. Each
and every day we can see miracles before us. I considered it a
miracle that Ron was able to get my info off of my external hard
drive that had ceased to work. I consider Benny and Milo as
miracles from God. I actually consider most of my life a miracle
from God. There are so many times that I should of died if left
up to only the doctors. My surgeon in Medical City even came
on his day off to visit me when I was not expected to live and
he said you’re in God’s Hands now and he knelt down beside
me and said a prayer with me, and that morning, God put His
mighty fingers in the holes of my intestines and let me to live.
You might not even be aware of the miracles at play in your
life, but they are there. Some miracles call ones home to be
angels to watch over you and I. Our fleshly bodies are not
the end of our very existence but only the beginning. I have
found myself seeing more clearly the works of God as my
life in this body gets closer to its ending. Don’t let sadness
to engulf you when things don’t go your way, because God’s
plans might not be in your vision at the moment. He has only
good that it sought for us, hut often many will stray away and
lose His direction and even seek for a darker course which
leads to Hell. Let your life find His Light within it as you do
the best you can to follow His Will. Though we all fall short
of the grace of God, but through His Son Jesus Christ we
are forgiven and given a place in Heaven. So with that said,
I guess it’s time for me to be taking a little visit 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 stumbled upon a good
title just a bit back in my rambling hehehe. So, now let’s us
see if I can write a good poem using it 🙂 Here’s goes!

The Scenes Unfolding

When morning’s arisen
to new days we see
the chances for life
will be what they’ll be.
The scenes unfolding
might not seem the best,
but God has a way of
adding His zest.
Each scene unfolding
might be clouded skies,
but with the raindrops
there’s rainbow’s surprise.
The seasons before us
as each day comes true
might be displaying
our blessings anew.
The scenes unfolding
could be in your gaze
needing you now to
give God your praise.

So, there ya go. I hope that was good enough for ya. I know, it’s
not one of my best, but hey, I gave it a gung ho 🙂 I guess I need
to now see if I forgot to tell you anything hehehe. Oh yea, about
my brother in laws. My brother in law David had to have part of
his tow cut off, because it was black due to no blood flow. Also my
sister’s husband, DD is doing as well as to be expected. He is in
God’s Hands. With cancer as his is, there isn’t anything that can
be done surgically and here lately the medications have not been
working so well. Keep him and my sister, as well as their kids in
your prayers. Peggy and DD have ben married for over 38 years
and I love them dearly. Peggy is my only sister. Yes, she’s the
eldest 🙂 I’m her baby brother although I have always been much
bigger than her LOL. OK so I reckon it’s 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 and 22 more haiku for
all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope you enjoy them and maybe
even find a few that you take to heart. So 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 semi elusive off
switch LOL. I think I see it peeking our from behind the router.
LOL find a better hiding spot next time ya silly thing hehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Sunrays

The sight of sunlight
coming through
brings me thoughts
of life anew.
Little sunrays
shining bright
in this sort of
cloudy sight.
Sunrays glisten
through today
as they bring their
solar ray.
Intense sunshine
shines so proud
throughout every
single cloud.
For the sunrays
that which shine
make there special
rain design.
Rainbows essence
colors gleam
as a sunrays
favorite dream.

Old Style Peace

Peaceful preludes
found each day
might be old styles
various way.
The old style peace
that many found
was so often
without sound.
It’s the peaceful
found so quiet
deep within
the darkest night.
Old style peace from
years ago
was what many
sought to know.
Not this decades
thoughts acquired,
but the peace from
life transpired.
The old style peace
that lived and breathed
in the dreams
that were conceived.
A simple farm life
not so drastic
not as now days
so bombastic.
That old style peace
of way back when
I wish would surely
begin agin.

Rising in Love

As two hearts
can come together
rising in love
could be forever.
The passionate times
of a favored dream
rising in love
could be supreme.
Scenes within them
two then found
rising in love
could then astound.
Moments gathered
rising in love
could be blessings
from God above.
So let the minutes
tick as they may
rising in love
the better way.
Let Lord Jesus
to become a part
rising in love
of a perfect heart.

Travel in Stillness

Wandering traveling
silently still
brings ones so magically
things to fulfill.
Using daydreaming
as your mode of drive,
travel in stillness
then comes so alive.
Footprints of dreamland
take you away
to travel in stillness
a wondrous array.
When you are weary
from now and agin
travel in stillness
to places you’ve been.
Maybe an ocean
with you on the shore
travel in stillness
to see a bit more.
Let not your footsteps
of then fall away.
Travel in stillness
when you’re feeling gray.

The Secret Rhythm

Inside of a rhythm
might find such a beat
that is so secretly
filled up with heat.
The secret rhythm
of which that you hear
might be as
someone’s yesteryear.
Beating repeating
the secrets that shine
that of a wonderful
magical time.
Within its rhythm
might also transpire
that of a true loves
passionate fire.
The secret rhythm
that silently beats
could be the persons
hope that accretes.
Building a flavors
tasty divine
the secret rhythm
could be yours or mine.

Awakening Smiles

Today brings chances
for awakening smiles
living and breathing
as hopeful compiles.
It takes some choices
sometimes and agin
awakening smiles
to let loose a grin.
Often our troubles
might be all we see
and making our smiling
real heard to be.
Yet with a little
effort each day
awakening smiles
can wash away gray.
Search deep within you
and find there agin
something to help you
most surely to grin.
Then that little grin
of which you displayed
might then awaken
a smile to be made.
For its reflection
in somebody’s face
might then make easy
your smile to embrace.

The La di da

While so many
watch and wait
the la di da
anticipate.
Ones with morals
not so great
found with only
their first rate.
The la di da
of many dreams
often leads to
flooded streams.
Don’t just end up
a la di da
seeking only
Shangri-La.
Let God’s blessings
thrive in you
with the things
you say and do.
The la di da
of pointless phrase
only creates
saddened days.

Future Past

Today’s tomorrow
will be today
as future past
our times inlay.
With every thought
of nows tomorrow
there will be smiles
and also sorrow.
The future past
will then become
as today
will surely come.
The seconds counted
that we see
will then turn
to history.
The future past
of running streams
might become
our endless dreams.
Today will pass
as time moves on
to future past
another dawn.

Failing Eyes

As sight grows dim
in older years
our failing eyes
might seek to swim.
Searching rivers
places seen
found within
our wildest dream.
With failing eyes
our mind becomes
that of travels
beating drum.
Rhythmic portholes
in our brain
take us places
once again.
Our memories
of days gone by
become as glimmers
in our eye.
For failing eyes
that fade away
can still remember
a greater day.

Tranquility

With God above
in you and me
we can find
tranquility.
The peace of love
from Him on high
can become
our apple pie.
Tranquility
that lives and breathes
as the wind
and blowing leaves.
The very essence
we can find
as a God thought
peace of mind.
Letting seasons
in a hurry
fall from you
to end your worry.
Let God fill each
sight you see
with His loves
tranquility.

Haiku
for June 22, 2013

While waiting for love
you might find a few wrong turns
that haven’t any love.

The truth in people
often comes out much later
when they’re in a hole.

With only a thought
we can change our perception
and make things better.

Bitter pills swallowed
will create our emotions
if we allow them.

As summer begins
it awakens many sights
of ones with sunburns.

Lessons come daily,
but many we do not see
until later dates.

Passionate portholes
are often only shadows
of our yesterdays.

Placing importance
needs to be done real wisely,
for some things aren’t good.

The greatest of then
might be remembered badly
while forgetting things.

The Grace of Lord God
comes as Heavenly blessings
from His Only Son.

Sometimes our answers
are as mistaken viewpoints
that lead to problems.

With many shadows
there are many things displayed
that we cannot see.

Without any dreams
we would become very sad
with reality.

Today brings us hope
as yesterday falls away
leaving only thoughts.

Beyond this moment
lies the beginnings of time
of which we can change.

Desiring another
can lead to a troubled heart
if not meant to be.

Gazing out windows
you might see your life fly by
as a tumble weed.

Inside of a mind
holds an imagination
needing a good key.

Peoples sincerity
is often clouded by wants
which sours their meanings.

Wintertime’s snowfall
is thought of through summertime
as a good relief.

When we look ahead
we might miss what’s behind us
and not see the good.

Heartbeats that unite
can blossom into true love
if God is present.

Accepting The Way

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
&
HAPPY FATHERS DAY

It’s a beautiful morning here today. Judy and me are planning
on going to get some ice cream at the Houlton Dairy sometime
today. More than likely before I finish my journal. I might get
some rest before I finish it. I have been writing all of my poems
and haiku since 4 AM hehehe. It’s now 6:52 AM. I think I have
found and corrected all of the typo’s in the poems and haiku, but
I will still maybe have Judy read through them with me before
I put them in the journal 🙂 My eye is getting a bit hazy right now
so I might have to take a break and go lie down with Judy in a
bit. She’s already sawing logs with Benny and Milo 🙂 It’s real
quiet around here this morning. I have the radio playing quietly.
I’ve got it on Moodscapes. No words, just some real peaceful
music. I will often use some of the titles to the music as titles
for new poems LOL. Although it is getting harder every day to
come up with titles that haven’t already used LOL. I guess I’m
gonna stop right here and catch me a wink or two of sleep before
I fall asleep at the keyboard LOL. I’ll be back later alligator 🙂
***************************************************
Well I am back and it looks like we won’t be making it to get
ice cream. It seems we have a water leak and our landlord is
working on it, plus Milo isn’t feeling well and we don’t want to
leave him in his crate and we don’t feel that he is up to a drive.
So, today is a bust. I figured I would go ahead and finish my
journal and get that out of the way. I am really tired, being that
I haven’t gotten any sleep as of yet. Maybe after I finish writing
I will lye down for a bit. We might go for ice cream another day.
Milo is lying in his little bed between Judy and I and Benny is
in his bed right beside him. He knows his big brother doesn’t
feel well. Milo is constipated, but it should pass soon hopefully.
I found a place on the net with remedies and if he doesn’t get
to feeling better soon I’m going to try a few remedies 🙂 I’ve
gotta take care of my boys. Though one of the remedies said
that if he drinks enough water, it should pass. Heck, I don’t
know any dog that drinks as much water as Milo 🙂 It’s hard
to keep the water bottles filled up LOL. We have one 4 1/2
gallon bottle and a 2 1/2 bottle pet watering jugs hehehe. So
Milo should be back to his old self soon. Right now they are
both sleeping quietly in their little doggy beds. Benny usually
pesters Milo to try and get him to play chase, but it seems that
he knows his big brother isn’t feeling well, so he’s letting him
rest. Every once in a while he looks over at Milo as if to see
if he is OK. Benny loves his big bro. They love each other.
So what else is going on around here that I can tell ya about real
quickly 🙂 ? It’s been raining a bit off and on most of the day.
Our landlord and neighbors have been mowing today also.
It was supposed to get up to 68 F degrees today. Right now
it’s 64 F degrees. Tonight supposed to get down to 55 or so.
Tomorrows high is supposed to be 66 F degrees. Yeppers it’s
not bad at all temperature wise for summertime hehehehehe.
Judy and I have been doing a little house cleaning today and
we’re both tuckered out. Judy is still in there catching up on
the laundry. I think we’re both about ready to go back to
bed LOL. I know I am ;). I thank God for keeping His Hands
upon us with His Love. We couldn’t make it without Him
and forgiveness through His Son. Yes we have our share
of troubles such as my friends at Century Computer are
still unable to get my external hard drive to work. Of course
it has been a few days since I have called them. Yet, I’m
trusting that it will all come out the way it should. Life isn’t
about getting everything you want. It’s about excepting the
way things work out at times and then growing from them.
Let God have your prayers for His Will to be done and it
will surely be OK. We might not see it at the time, but the
moment will make us stronger if we don’t give in to our own
greediness that pours in sadness. Now I think I have gone
and rambled much more than I was planning on and I need
to be taking my little venture back through all that I have
written here today 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 might of stumbled
onto a decent title. Now let’s see what if anything at all I
can do with it LOL. Here goes nothing.

Accepting The Way

Our father’s way
of birth to old
should show us doing
as we’re told.
Accepting the way
of daddy’s eyes
might of prevented
darkened skies.
I often ventured
from his lessons
finding only
my transgressions.
Accepting the way
that daddy chose
often helped me
to compose.
Yet he was just
flesh and bone
teaching all
he’s ever known.
My dear father
daddy mine
helped me make
my own design.
Accepting the way
he taught to me
showed me truly
how to be.
I miss you daddy,
but I know
you’re now with me
to and fro.
As my angel
every day
you still teach
accepting the way.

So Ok, there ya go. I hope you enjoyed my rambling and
maybe even the poem. I haven’t much else to talk about other
than to ask you to continue to keep my brother in laws in prayer.
Also keep a prayer for my friends friend in Texas. God knows
who they are and their need. So I reckon it’s time for me to be
telling you what I tell you every week and that is I wrote some
more poems and haiku. Yeppers, I wrote all of them early this
morning LOL. 10 more poems and 22 more haiku for all of my
haiku lovers out there. Now, I believe it’s time for me to be
searching for that confounded off switch, but surely not before
I wish you a most wonderful Fathers Day and a blessed week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too. Now, to find that
off switch. I think I can see it peeking out from behind the fan
that is not on hehehe. He is such a bad hider LOL. Next time
why not hide behind the freaking blades hehehehehehehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

The Past Is Gone

Today is here
the past is gone
as time is ticking
on and on.
The past is only
shadows glance
from its time
of song and dance.
The past is gone
so now today
seek for what’s
a better way.
Don’t let the past
be all you see,
for now today
might not agree.
The change of dates
brings things to find.
The past is gone,
find nows design.

Within A Heart

While many seek
true love to find,
so many only
find the time.
Within a heart
the truth exist
as sometimes
a fleeting mist.
An empty heart
that time has found
will be saddened
times around.
The truth of love
will be displayed
with the moments
minutes wade
Within a heart
is hope to see
that can grow
the best to be.
Don’t let empty
become you.
Within a heart
can be brand new.

My Father’s Time

While future days
are still ahead
I remember
all he said.
My father’s time
of long ago
taught me what
I need to know.
My sweet daddy
father dear
showed me true
what is sincere.
He gave his love
through God Divine
with his truth
my fathers time.
Now he’s gone,
but lives each day
as his spirit
hears me pray.
This time each year
brings love apprize.
My father’s time
is in my eyes.
His reflection
lives in me.
My father’s time
through history.

A Snowy Dream

A summers dream
of whitest snow
I find at times
I seek to know.
A snowy dream
with flakes of white
falling softly
day and night.
Yet with dreams
my reality
comes alive
to clearly see.
A snowy dream
in summertime
cannot be
in this design.
For with summer
comes the heat
that the snow
could not compete.
But soon summer
will be gone
as the snowy
dream moves on.
With the glimmers
whitest sheen
I’ll see true
a snowy dream.

Lord God I Pray

Dear Lord my God
I pray to you
to guide my life
through all I do.
Thank You for
the things you’ve done
that forgive me
through Your Son.
Lord God I pray
to you my king
to keep my soul
from Satan’s sting.
Let my lifetime
find your course
not just filled with
times remorse
Lord God I pray
to you my friend
and thank you for
the love You send.
Thank You Lord God
from above
that gave Jesus
filled with Love.
Lord God I pray
each day to you
to show me what’s
the best to do.

When Patience Ends

As times with stress
finds moments mind
our patience might
be hard to find.
When patience ends
it leaves some pain
leading to
sometimes insane.
For with stress
of then and there
our patience might
just need a prayer.
So take a little
time to breathe
and find patience
to believe.
Let your heart to
find some peace
through a prayer
of God increase.
Let Him show you
peace of mind
through a prayer
with Him combined.

Sunny Side of Life

The days beginnings
find a place
a sunny side
of life’s embrace.
The simple things
that time perceives
such as summers
drifting leaves.
Streams of beauty
flow with style
the sunny side
of moments mile.
With each aroma
that summers bring
there’s a page
that birdies sing.
Chirping sweetly
across the way
the sunny side
of life each day.
I look outside
my window view
and see what summer
brought brand new.
I find the flowers
without strife
in the sunny
side of life.

When Morning Breaks

When mornings sunshine
is in sight
it’s the ending
of the night.
When morning breaks
it brings to view
sights and sounds
each day anew.
Found as trademarks
fresh and free
the morning brings
so much to see.
Through my window
shining bright
I now see
the morning light.
The quiet of night
has ceased its way
so to welcome
the new day.
When morning breaks
the time moves on
for the moments
after dawn.
Every shadow
sunshine shows
is with blessings
God bestows.

A Small Thought

A simple thought
of timeless greed
can become
a wanted need.
Yet that need
is just a lie
as a small thoughts
alibi.
Don’t let thinking
lie to you
with a small thought
not so true.
Let the truth to
live and breathe
in what’s right
you should believe.
In a small thought
grows a time
that might be
a bad design.
Let your thinking
see more clear
what is best
not insincere.
Truthful thinking
will expose
what a small thought
only knows.

Common Call

We each are connected
in ways often blind
within a common
call time to time.
Times we might find
what connects us each one
we then most surely
might find life begun.
We’ve each got places
in life that exist,
but many often
find that they missed.
Their own directions
through here and around
could lead them surely
to Hells side of town.
It’s our own choices
that find many paths
leading us places
often with wrath.
Seek for the blessings
God’s given us all
that will connect us
as common call.

Haiku
for June 16, 2013

With just a moment
time can become much better
if we’ll allow it.

So many people
let their lives to fall apart
over little things.

Right now might display
as maybe a reflection
of what’s remembered.

With true blown insight
our problems might get smaller
with a little prayer.

Wasteful is thinking
when it’s done without wisdom
of knowing what’s best.

Our tomorrows mind
might be a bit different
than what’s thought today.

Springtime’s remembrance
is found in summers shadows
as a stream that flows.

Beyond a hillside
might live a different view
that you never saw.

With every heartbeat
there are so many people
to other drummers.

We can find joyful
if we’ll change our perception
in what that we see.

The truth of a cloud
is as a billow of time
floating overhead.

The oh of pleasure
comes as misunderstandings
that Satan will show.

Sometimes with peaceful
comes the essence of stressful
to make you aware.

Nobody can hide
from the presence of Jesus,
for He sees your heart.

Many will break laws
thinking they’ll never get caught,
but surely they will.

Becoming flowers
is the rhythm of blossoms
with their arrival.

Footprints that we make
are one footstep at a time
showing where we went.

Prosperities game
is often ones stepping stones
costing another.

Life can be wondrous
if we will look for the joy
instead of sadness.

Guardian angels
watch over us every day,
but must allow Truth.

Peace is a venture
that’s often sought for blindly
and creates troubles.

All of our journeys
are our eternal pathways
to Heaven or Hell.

Beside Me Smiling

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been holding out? We’ve been doing fairly
well. Not too much has happened out of the ordinary over
here. We’ve been just doing our daily routines as our old
body’s would allow them hehehe. The boys have gotten
their final shearing and are looking quite nice. Of course
we’ll have to do some trimming ever so often until winter
comes for a visit. Then we’ll let their hair grow out just
as we did last winter. We’ve got all of the dog grooming
stuff that we need now. So it’s not so hard to shear them.
It’s just a tad messy hehehe. They almost look like they
did when we got them aside from Milo’s hairdo that we
left on his head. His hair is parted in the middle. Oh and
of course they have both grown a bit since we got them 🙂
The last time they were weighed was in March and Benny
weighed in at 20.7 pounds and Milo weighed 24.7 pounds.
So ya see, they are pretty much the same size with just
4 pounds apart. Milo is a bit longer then Benny which
accounts for his extra weight. In any sense, they are
as brothers no matter what. You can see the love as
they hang out together and play together. Milo might
be 7 years older than Benny, but you’d never know it
by looking at them. Yes Benny has more energy than
Milo hehehe, but Milo attempts to keep up with him 🙂
Benny is our little overactive doorbell. He barks if he
hears any movement outside at all LOL. All I can say
is I’m glad we don’t live in the city hehehe. He has
though toned it down a tad after getting used to a few
of the sounds such as neighbors with their 4 wheelers
and lawnmowers. He’s a good boy. He thinks he’s
our protector and yes of course when Benny makes
a dash for the front door barking, Milo is never far
behind him LOL. Yeppers, this house has its many
moments of excitement. Judy and I have our up days
and down days. Sometimes we have to let our farms
on Farm Town/Facebook have a break, because we
don’t feel up to par. We do still go to them maybe
every other day or so and plow, plant and harvest.
We haven’t played our hidden object games in a long
while, but I’m sure we’ll get back to them one day.
I have yet to have heard whether or not my external
hard drive is repairable or not. I’m just waiting for
their call. I’ve said a prayer for the hard drive, but
that’s all I can do. If it can’t be repaired, I’ll have to
resort to stealing and sorting all of the pictures that
are on Judy’s hard drive. In other words, a long
drawn out process hehehehe. I wish Windows Live
email would let me put my subscribers emails in
groups as I had with my Outlook Express, but it
will not work. I would have to send to everybody
one at a time and that is never gonna happen LOL.
I’m getting ready to send my old PC to Texas so
they can work on it and maybe get it to working
properly again. Maybe this month some time in
the next week or so. In any case, I guess all will
be well in some manner hehehe. One of my friends
in Texas called me last night to ask me to put in for
a prayer request. One of her friends is now in the
hospital on life support. The doctors cannot at the
moment find out what has caused his heart to stop.
Please send him prayers. God knows the address
and his name 🙂 So often we might think that God
is not around because of all of the problems, but
that can’t be further from the truth. God is always
around, but will often allow what He knows best
to happen for He knows the end results. If a life
has ceased to breathe in the flesh, it will live on
as maybe someone’s angel or find where they’re
happiest at and live for eternity in Heaven. Yet of
course if the life was that of a darker spirit find an
eternity living in Hell. There are also many spirits
that have unfinished business or have just lost their
way. Not all are bad. Some are just confused at
what happened. Life and death are something that
we will never truly understand. All I know is, that
life does go on in some manner or form. God has
control of it all. He might not do what we would like
for Him to do, but He does what is for the best.
I still speak to my dad and I know he can hear me
and often I feel him standing beside me smiling.
Thank you God for all that you have done and all
that you will continue to do. You’ve taken great
care of Judy and I and made sure that we have all
that we need. Have you thanked God lately? If
not, then how about right now. Thank Him for the
things that you’re unaware that He has done for
you as well as the things that you know of. You’ll
find a smile through that thankfulness. Now it’s
time for me to begin my little visit back through all
that I have written and 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 little place of my
recollection that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE
to find that title 🙂 I think I may have found a good
title, but we shall see huh hehehehe. Here goes.

Beside Me Smiling

My dear daddy
stands by me
but his sight
I cannot see.
Beside me smiling
he is there
as my daily
answered prayer.
He is always
there at hand
with his words
to help me stand.
Beside me smiling
every day
he will never
go away.
I know daddy
is with me
to help me be
the best to be.
He’s my guardian
angel true
that from God
shall not adieu.
He’ll be there
until I die
to say hello,
but not goodbye.
We’ll then fish
the Heavens streams
as that of
our favorite dreams.
Then my Paw Paw
will join in
as we all just
fish agin.

So how was that hehehe? I know I tend to get deep
from time to time. That’s me. There ain’t no shallow
thinking in here LOL, although I’m sure that Judy
would argue that hehehe. I do get silly from time to
time. Hey, someone that is serious all of the time
will accrue but only ulcers. Trust me I know. I lost my
colon and a third of my small intestines due to ulcers.
which turned to Crohn’s disease and almost killed me.
Find a little laughter in the mistakes that you make
and the things around you, but don’t go overboard.
Find seriousness in the appropriate timeframes of
life. Benny and Milo are in their playful moods now.
Running around the house playing chase hehehehe.
Now Milo just scratched on the door to say that he
needs to go out and go potty. Judy just let him out.
He’ll be right back in after he does his thing hehehe.
He prefers to be inside. Judy just said he didn’t
want to go out. I think they might be just wanting
a treat LOL or me to play with them. Either one
will have to wait until I finish writing. Milo scratched
on the door again, so I walked him to the front door.
This time he went out to go pee. He’s back in and
this time for sure wanting treats the same as Benny.
Judy’s giving them each a piece of Bark’n Bacon.
Benny didn’t want his. I think he’s waiting for me
to feed them LOL. I just handed him his piece of
bacon and he took it and ran out of the room hehehe.
So, that’s the excitement within the Pearce’s Place.
Both of my brother in laws are doing as well as to
be expected. God is in control. Now, I believe it’s
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, but yet one of
them this time being a Christmas poem HoHoHo.
I also wrote once again 22 haiku for all of my haiku
lovers out there. I hope you find some of each that
bring you a smile or a lesson. Now it’s time for
me to be searching for that darned off switch that
loves to try and elude me, but not before I wish
you a most wonderful God filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Ok, where’s that
freaking off switch hiding this time? Looking up
at the chandelier I think I see a crystal that does
not belong hehehe. Hey, it’s a cheap 10 dollar
chandelier hehehe. I see ya dangling there LOL.
Ya might want to hide behind the crystals and not
in front of them next time ya silly hehehehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Hello Today

The minutes found
today my friend
tick with essence
without end.
Even when we
cease our counting
the minutes found
are still surmounting.
So hello today
I see you there
sometimes with my
answered prayer.
Yet so often
I might see
hello today
as history.
So minutes found
or so to say
I’ll just repeat
hello today.

When With A Dream

While I am sleeping
I might find a dream
that is just floating
in a boat on a stream.
Then as the waters
of time begin true
when with a dream
becomes seas of blue.
As the dream blossoms
I might see a sight
when with a dream
of which I delight.
Times only fathomed
that are found in a dream
wonderful moments
might surely be seen.
When with a dream
of things gone away,
you can create
a much better day.
Yet when while dreaming
you might need to know
that a dream is just a dream
and the truth will bestow.

Seasons Rain

The stage is set
for seasons view
to do what all
that it will do.
The seasons rain
will fall on down
to be as waters
on the ground.
So many sights
will come to be
when seasons rain
gives them to see.
The flowers bloom
and trees will grow
along with grass
that many will mow.
The stage is set
while I look out
at seasons rain
without a doubt.

Guarding You Heart

Your yesterdays
might seem real bad,
but it can be
good that you had.
The lessons learned
from long ago
might of taught
your need to know.
Yes so often
through those days
you might only
see the grays.
and guard your heart
too great to find
someone true
that is so kind.
Guarding your heart
is good to do,
but don’t let past
to cloud your view.
Sometimes people
long ago
were just there
to help you grow.
God allows
some things in time
to help to grow
your best design.

Pointless Prayer

As people stray
they often find
a pointless prayer
within their mind.
Yet there’s none
that God can view
that is pointless
which is true.
A pointless prayer
can only be
one that is not
good to see.
So let God to
discern prayer
and determine
love and care.
Take your troubles
to Him now
and let prayers
in Him endow.
No pointless time
for prayer of need
is found within
His Love indeed.

Thoughts Within

Beyond a sight’s
a single thought
found within
a moment sought.
Our thoughts within
might be displayed
as the things
our moments made.
For those thoughts
of thinking times
might not be
the best designs.
Those thoughts within
that live today
might just need
to go away.
Those thoughts within
can become true
and not be
the best for you.

Found In The Silence

As darkness grows deeper
and time moves along
found in the silence
are things that belong.
Nothing is heard but
the sound of the wind
as it blows peacefully
just like a friend.
Found in the silence
my thoughts come to be
filling my thinking of
what I will see.
Silence brings patterns
that I haven’t heard
sometimes in darkness
a little absurd.
Yet I don’t fear it
for I truly know
found in the silence
my prayers help me so.
Darkness is only
a part that’s not seen
that many make up
a nightmare to dream.
For surely spirits
are there day and night
that many only
cannot live in light.
God is protector
and truthful defense
from all the darkness
found in the silence.

Seconds of Christmas

Often the minutes
and seconds we find
leave us just thinking
of sweet Christmastime.
Seconds of Christmas
might seem not to be
then at the moment
the best times to see,
but then as the seconds
are found later on
we might be sad for
the time that is gone.
Seconds of Christmas
might seem to be small,
but as time moves
you remember them all.
Let not those seconds
to find just regret.
Make them remembered
as Christmas banquet.
Maybe even wonderful
seconds to see
that have brought joyful
in greatest degree.
Let not the sadness
to fill up your view.
Seconds of Christmas
can live within you.

Summertime Views

With every perception
of every connection
through every display
of summertime’s day,
I find intersections
in many directions
through every which way
of June after May.
I find that I’m seeing
what summer’s repeating
as timeframes are found
with summer around.
The seasons would being
could be garment freeing
as ones dance around
on the sand laden ground.
The summertime views
gives heat driven news
while many go swimming
within the beginning.
At last ones can choose
the summertime views
or be just agreeing
of all that they’re seeing.
With cameras in hand
on the summertime sand
you can snap one or two
of your summertime views.
Then take you a strand
of the summertime sand
and make it brand new
in a summer sky blue.

While I Await

The night brings hope
of mornings sun
while await
the time begun.
The minutes pass
while I await
the minutes now
of oh so late.
While the minutes
tick on by
I just count
or give a try.
Yet of course
while counting true
while I await
I change my view.
For the moment
that I see
I am happy
here with me.
God is here
as I give praise
while I await
for future days.

Haiku
for June 9, 2013

While many stumble
they might also be learning
how not to stumble.

Within a raindrop
is life that begins minute
and makes a river.

The chances we give
will often not show progress
until we are gone.

Times of our worry
could become our only view
if we allow them.

Windows of our mind
will often get real foggy
in times full of stress.

Without a heartbeat
a life within human flesh
is only a ghost.

In summers season
comes the rains that cool the days
while shade is so scarce.

As morning arrives
the sun peeks through my window
to tell me hello.

A simple moment
can become very stressful
if out of context.

Stupidity thrives
as many refuse to learn
what ones are teaching.

A pattern is made
as footsteps are continued
in a direction.

Ones seeking knowledge
often look the wrong places
and find empty minds.

A shadow can’t live
without a single spirit
to help it exist.

As minutes will pass
so will the chances for change
so don’t waste your time.

Growth of a flower
begins with a small seedling
that has been planted.

The echoes of time
could be misinterpreted
with lack of knowledge.

Wintertime just waits
for summer and fall to cease
and give way for snow.

Many will follow
where so many are leading
and blindly fall prey.

A sunlight glimmer
shines brightly through my window
as morning awakes.

Today gives blessings
that we’ll never clearly see
until it is time.

In a single glance
one might think they know the truth,
but the sight is short.

Hearing someone’s words
could be beginning or end
of what that was said.

At The Time

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s 12 midnight right now and the electricity just came
back on just a few minutes ago. It’s been out since about
5 or 6 PM when the storm came through. Thank God we
have our little battery operated hurricane lantern. I hung
it in the center of our bedroom and it lit it up nicely so we
could see. Hehehe Benny and Milo were scared by the
lightning and thunder, but mostly the thunder. There was
a break in the rain and so I asked the boys if they needed
to go out and pee or whatever. Milo came running, but
Benny wasn’t needing to go. Milo went down the steps and
did his thing and turned around quickly to come back in,
being he was scared of all the darkness. I held the door
and aimed a flashlight outside so he could see. The boys
spent most of the time during the storm cuddled together
with Judy and I on the bed LOL. I had nodded off and was
amidst a dream of Judy and I stopping at a a restaurant in
some place I can’t recall to get a chicken fried steak and
at that moment I woke up and said the lights are on and
looked up and it was the lantern still and so I reached for
for the flashlight so I could go to the bathroom and the
lights came on at that moment LOL. Talk about weird or
what huh hehehe. Yeppers we’ve found another program
to watch that is hosted by William Shatner called Weird
or What LOL. We love all of those type TV programs 🙂
The rain and wind has subsided thank God. For a while
there I thought we were gonna blow away. I took the AC
vent out of the window and turned it off when the electricity
flickered. Good timing LOL. The electricity went out as
soon as I turned off the air conditioner hehehe. Is that
weird or what 🙂 ! We had already shut down our PC’s and
all. So now Benny and Milo are in their little beds right
here in the floor between Judy and I. LOL, I think Benny
has my abilities. He barked and then Judy’s oven timer
went off immediately afterwards. She was hungry and
fixed her a Tony’s Pizza. I told her I would wait to eat
after I finish writing my rambling thoughts hehehehehe.
Well, I’m not gonna make this too wordy, being all of
Judy’s smacking on her food over there is making me
hungry hehehe. Oh yea, we sheared Benny and Milo
for the summer. It took us two tries LOL. They had
a lot of hair. We bought professional shears, but Milo
had tons of snagged hair that I had to cut through with
scissors from time to time. Benny’s hair was not that
bad, but he does have curly hair and it was a long going
process weeding it down hehehe. LOL Milo had a bit
of an accident all over me and himself due to getting
to scared of me trimming his underbelly LOL. Judy
and I cleaned it up and him and I, and we started at it
again, but I put him outside to finish peeing before we
continued LOL. The boys look nice and I’m sure they
are much cooler now. They were both panting from
the heat, but Benny likes to be outside none the less
of course if it’s not raining. Benny hates it when it
rains hehehe. So what else is going on up here at the
Pearce’s Place? There has not been much of a change.
My external hard drive is still in Texas. I’m hoping
that it can be repaired. If not, then I will have to deal
with it, but I hope and pray to God that they can fix it.
Ron asked me if I was still going to send my computer
for him to repair. I said yes, but we were strapped for
cash right now. I might pack it up and send it to them
this month if nothing happens to prevent it. For now,
I am doing the best that I can on this piece of garbage
while still having to use Judy’s PC to send, being that
Windows Live Mail does not for some stupid reason
do grouped mail or at least this one doesn’t. I would
have to send emails one at a freaking time which would
take me an eternity. Plus Windows Live Mail doesn’t
give the option for stationeries. I make my own using
Outlook Express. Windows Live doesn’t do any type
of stationeries. Just plain Jane like web mail. I have
tried all of the other email programs out there that are
compatible with Windows 8 and none will work even
closely. Most will not import my addresses book/WAB
files. That is a real issue. OH well, if it gets to the
point that I am unable to send, then that I guess will be
the end of Animals Greetings as you know it, but I’ll
cross that bridge when I get to it. Life goes on. Judy
is now eating a popsicle hehehe. I think she’s trying
to torture me LOL. This place has seen its times of
trouble and seen God fill it with peace. We will most
surely have problems, but God is always there with
His strength and angels He has sent to help us when
we cannot help ourselves. I know we’ll have problems
time and again, but we are much stronger after the
storm. We might not see it at the time of the troubles,
but blessings are just a prayer away. So I reckon it’s
time for me to be taking a looksee 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 always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. Hehehe Milo is snoring! Anyways, I think
I found a good title. Now let’s see if I can use it to
write a halfway decent poem. Here goes….

At The Time

When our troubles
come to be
the answers then
we may not see.
For at the time
of troubles place
you might feel
without God’s Grace
The patterns seen
as time goes round
might mislead
your sight and sound.
For at the time
of then and there
you just might
find answered prayer.
So when you’re at
a tormented view
let Lord God
do what He will do.
You might then
find different sights
that are better
days and nights.
The views right now
might seem insane,
but with God
there is a gain.

I hope that my rambling entertained you hehehe and
you were not bored to death LOL. Also I hope that my
words in the poem made sense to you. I often think I’m
the only one that will understand my thoughts hehehe.
I mean, I do have a weird way of thinking ya know LOL.
So, what else is there to mention in this journal that
I have yet to of mentioned? Both of my brother in laws
are doing good. David’s surgeries went well. My other
brother in law DD is handling his cancer as best that he
can. Him and my sister are finding things to do together,
being in truth, none of us really knows when our last
day in our fleshly bodies will be. We could be hit by
a truck or a bolt of lightning. A tornado could come
and end your daily life. So get right with God today.
Of course death of our Earthly bodies is not the end.
It is the beginning of another plain of life which your
choices will determine the path of that plain. Ok 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 and haiku.
Yeppers 10 more poems and 22 more haiku. I hope
you find a few of either that make you smile or even
open your eyes. Now it’s time for me to be searching
for that confounded off switch, but not before I wish
you a wonderful God filled week. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now where is that freaking
off switch hiding at this time? I see ya you silly little
thing hehehe. You do know that I have to use my
mouse from time to time, don’t you? Hiding under
it is not one of your greatest hiding spots hehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Weather of Storms

Today with the raindrops
in a weather of storms
I find I’m dreaming
of timeframes so warm.
Moments of pathways
with lightning and rain
displayed as droplets
on my windowpane .
Scenes now are windy
with rains falling down
making their noises
while hitting the ground.
The weather of storms
is found in the night
displayed as raindrops
that wait for daylight.
All through the night skies
the weather is seen
as that of flavors
that are found in a dream.

Moments of Splendor

When in a sad time
remember back when
moments of splendor
did so enter in.
Times we’ve forgotten
from so long ago
moments of splendor
are just a shadow.
It’s our own thinking
that leaves us so sad,
because we will often
forget what we’ve had.
Wintertime’s values
that many don’t see
often become just
a bad memory.
Moments of splendor
are often seen true
when we allow them
inside me and you.

Floating Whispers

Within the silence
a thought comes alive
as floating whispers
that time does survive.
Whispers of past days
that time does reveal
are sometimes floating
with timeless appeal.
Sometimes so lightly
the whispers are heard
as that of echoes
of the flight of a bird.
Scenes will unlock then
as floating is found
while you are standing
with feet on the ground.
Times floating whispers
are sometimes so clear
if you will listen
and seek then to hear.

Deep Space

When stars are a twinkling
and the moon’s shining bright
there are some blessings
that shine in the night.
Scenes search as pictures
that are found to see
sometimes as guidance
for a ship found at sea.
Found within deep space
are things never seen
often just dreamt of
within a mere dream.
Deep space with glimmers
are thoughts come alive
sometimes as ventures
that many will thrive.
Yet now as we each
just wonder what’s true
we might in deep space
find something brand new.
Things never thought of
as deep space is found,
simply because we all
live on the ground.

State of Healing

With prayer as a tool
the body can find
a state of healing
within God’s design.
Time is just minutes
that He sees no end
and His state of healing
can be a best friend.
Giving ones the time
of never before
your state of healing
might walk through the door.
Often it’s selfishness
ones wish each day
when all they wish for
is in their own way.
A state of healing
is found in our mind
when we are grateful
of God’s timeless time.

Blue Haze

A haze of blue
in shadows scene
displays as
a moments dream.
A times blue haze
that left a mark
becomes what all
our hearts embark.
A hazy sky
of waves of blue
glimmer in sunlight
before me and you.
A simple blue haze
that I’ve memorized
is on the island
that we had arrived.
A moment of bliss
with romantic days
is found in my heart
within our blue haze.

Deceptive Dreaming

Within a dream
is interpretation
sometimes just needing
a moments direction.
Often our dreams are
just but a wish
found in an ocean
of timeless delish.
Deceptive dreaming
can become real bad
when you are seeking just
all that you had.
Life is a venture
of pages to turn
giving us lessons
that we are to learn.
Don’t let deception
to be all you see.
Learn to see truly
what God gave for free.

The Journey We Made

When we were connected
the miles did not show,
for it was heartbeats
that made me to go.
Then when the distance
was dotted on line
I found the moments
as God’s Own design.
When we were married
our journey began
driving together
with time and again.
Seeking such pictures
as bright morning skies
the journey we made
was filled with surprise.
Scenes such as colors
of red white and blue
and many others
before me and you.
The journey we made
then changed within time
to a much whiter
snowy design.
I found that snowflakes
created some views
that which I walked in
my tennis shoes.
Little snow trails
were found in the snow
the journey we made
of where all we’d go.
So many pictures
we took time agin
of all the places
of which we had been.
The journey we made
was one found complete
to where I now find
so very sweet.

The Room

A night alone
with music playing,
the room displays
the words I’m saying.
The room is found
with only words
written down
as flocks of birds.
The room is thoughts
contained to be
the words that many
say and see.
My thinking finds
so many pages
written from
my distant ages.
Things I learned
or just went through
the room brings forth
right now anew.
Many thoughts
I feel right now
give my words
what times endow.

Ocean Deep

Swimming in thoughts
of waves of desire
the ocean deep
will surely transpire.
It is much deeper
than anyone’s views
and many often
will fill with confuse.
The ocean deep
of waves that roll
gives ones visions
where they go.
An ocean vessel
found on the waves
leaves its impression
found in the days,
Yet in the ocean
deep down below
many find vessels
that time doesn’t know.
The ocean deep
holds many to find
found as the echoes
of its time to time.

Haiku
for June 1, 2013

Today will be gone
as minutes are passing by
leaving perception.

Hearing a wording
might become as misconceived
if not hearing all.

A raindrop that falls
can become a pattern seen
forming a river.

With just a footstep
tomorrow becomes today
as yesterday’s gone.

A dreamer of time
gives hope for so many things
if the dreams are good.

When doors are opened
there are chances for better
and also much worse.

With but a moment
all of your putting off things
could end without chance.

Windows of today
give different ways to view
and to react on.

Sometimes a person
will leave their better choices
sitting in the door.

Without some mistakes
we wouldn’t have the lessons
that create our growth.

Right can become left
if a circle is conceived,
for they will connect.

Temperaments sight
is often in the moment
with how you’re feeling.

With some ideas
there are many that are bad
that should not be thought.

Memories of now
will one day become better
as time moves along.

Morning comes slowly
as the sun begins shining
inside my window.

Without a footstep
right now cannot move forwards
to become future.

A rivers venture
might turn and twist through valleys
to end in a lake.

With music playing
the peace of a moments time
can fill up the room.

As sleep is not found
the weary mind is exposed
causing poor insight.

Now is a timeframe
that many will waste away
as they just watch it.

Saying good morning
doesn’t make it a good one.
It might take effort.

As a flower blooms
it goes through many stages
preparing to die.
