The Beginning Of Winter

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well this is the second time I’ve tried to write my journal today LOL.
There was a power outage after I had spent TWO hours on writing my
journal. So here I go again! Now, it’s 2:20 PM not 12:30 PM when
I had started before LOL. It seems that the power outage began at
Houlton and took us with it being that’s where we get our electricity.
Anyways, it’s 72 F degrees right now with high supposed to be around
75 F degrees. It’s supposed to be in the mid 60’s and 70’s F all week
long with rain forecasted for Friday and into the weekend. Then the
temperatures are supposed to be by Saturday in the mid 50’s to lower
60’s F. Our neighbors and landlord did a little bit of mowing Saturday
to get ready for winter. I don’t think the grass is gonna grow much
more now. In many places it’s dying. Yep, winter is surely on its way
as fall comes into sight. I took a little drive by myself west of us a bit
Saturday and got a lot of great pictures, but still not much on the fall
colors. It’s still a bit too soon, but Judy and I might make another
photographing venture in a few days to see if we can’t get some fall
colors to show our friends and family. Benny and Milo are doing good.
Milo is lying in the floor right beneath my feet and Benny is outside
enjoying the sunshine. Milo doesn’t like to be outside much other
than to go potty hehehe. Benny prefers the indoors, but loves the
outdoors also. He will on most cases sit at the top of the steps or
atop of his doghouse and watch as the day moves on. They truly
are a pair hehehe. You can tell that they love one another. When
I had returned from my picture taking venture Saturday, they were
both stood at the screen door barking and whining, because they
missed me :). They do that to either of us. If we go to WalMart
and leave them in their cages at home, they throw a fit when they
hear our car pull up in the driveway. When we let them out of their
cages, they can’t contain their excitement hehehe. It’s quite a nut
house around here from time to time LOL. When we first got Milo
back in October of last year, he didn’t like to be held and wasn’t
that affectionate. Boy has he changed! He loves to sit in my lap
and will on most cases beg for me t pick him up hehehehehehehe.
Benny has always loved to sit in my lap since we brought him home
from the Bangor Airport back in March of last year. Benny marked
his spot while Judy drove hehehe. Yes, he peed in my lap being he
hadn’t gone to the bathroom in over 5 hours of his flight and many
layovers in route here from Missouri where we bought him from.
Benny was a rescue dog. I guess the boys like the Santa Clause
looking lap that I have LOL HoHoHo. They love to be held by
Judy as well, but for some reason prefer my lap. Go figure!!!!
On another topic, Judy and I have our twelve year anniversary
coming up Wednesday October 2. Can you believe it? She has
put up with me for 12 years! LOL we’ve put up with each other.
We have a lot of special moments together and we both love
to watch most of the same TV programs and take pictures as
well as play with our little boys hehehe. She also writes poetry
and is a great poet in my book. Yet she doesn’t write quite as
much as I do. For that matter, I know no one that writes as
many poems as I do hehehe, especially in one day 🙂 Benny
is in the house and apparently barking at the wind being he’s
lying on the recliner. He might have been chasing a dream :).
Milo ran in the living room to see what he was barking about.
He even came back in here with confusion on his face hehehe.
Well, the day moves on as the seasons show their journeys.
After fall will be the beginning of winter with snowflakes that
blanket the Earth. I always love to see the first snowflakes 🙂
Of course after about 2 or 3 months of winters snow it does
lose its appeal a tad LOL, then we start praying for summer.
Springtime is not a season we see much of up here. They say
they do, but then they have never actually experienced true
springtime hehehe. It shouldn’t be displayed with snow on
the ground and freezing temperatures in my book hehehehe.
Nope, that ain’t springtime to me! Christmas is my favorite
time of year and that is one reason I love it up here, because
we have never had a Christmas that there wasn’t snow on the
ground. A few times it was snowing Christmas Day. We’ve
had a few great snows on Christmas Eve. Anyways, that is
one of the many things I like about living up here. The things
I miss are my friends and family and being able to take a trip
down south to Port Aransas with Judy and wade in the oceans
waves while taking pictures all the while. Both of us miss that.
We also miss swimming in the swimming pool most every week
at the Americana Apartments in Greenville TX where we lived.
I miss my outings with my mom as we would often head off to
WalMart late at night when Judy was at work. Also my mom
would often treat Judy and I to lunch at the Caddo Café down
the road from us. Those were the days. Now is another page
within our journal of life and we’re writing more episodes to
be read later on in life. There’s one thing I hate about living
up here and that is I can’t seem to find anyone that will be my
friend. Most treat me like a disease or something. I know I’m
different, but I’m a nice guy. I had thought I had made some
friends up here, but one moved to Hawaii and the other I have
not heard from in a long while and I don’t know his new phone
number. Maybe God willing one day I might find me a friend
that I can hang with when Judy goes to have her day with her
sisters. Saturday while driving looking for some scenery I met
a nice lady while looking for her husband that I had run across
years ago on one of my snowy picture drives, but I had since
forgotten where it was that he lived LOL. I just happened to
find myself on the same road as then while looking for pictures
to take and walked up to say hello. She said her husband was
sick, but she would tell him I stopped by. Me and her stood
talking at the door for about an hour and I looked behind me
to see the most beautiful sunset as I was heading back to the
car and I snapped a number of pictures. In all, I had a great
time visiting as well as getting some pictures. Maybe, if I can
find their house again hehehe I will visit again and hopefully
get to chat with her husband, the one that I had hoped to see.
I asked if they were on the internet and she said yeah, so I
told her to look up my website AnimalsGreetings.com and
in the about me has my email addy if either of them wants to
write me. I had driven many back roads so only God knows
if I’ll be able to find their house again anytime soon hehehe.
I have always been a people person of course aside from my
alcoholic days back in the late 80’s I had drank myself into
seclusion, but after I sobered up in June of 1990 I found my
love for people once again. God gives us chances to excel
in our lives, but we must release the bindings of yesterday
and move forward. My past has had a lot of turns and twists,
but survived with many lessons I learned from those days.
Don’t let the turmoil’s of yesterday to hinder your sight for
today and tomorrow. Let them help you to grow to be much
stronger. Become wise and use the past as tools to make a
better today. God will help you as He sees you need help,
but will not intercede if He knows you are capable of doing
it yourself. Keep the faith that all will work the way that it
should work as each day comes to be. We might see the
immediate wrongs in our eyes, but we might not see the
lessons that came from them or angels that are born from a
horrific loss. Now 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 might work well for the title for
today’s new poem. So, it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I found a phrase earlier while I was writing and wrote it
down just in case I couldn’t find a better one, but it looks
like it will do 🙂 Here goes!

The Beginning Of Winter

While seasons move on
and pages are turned
the beginning of winter
is one day discerned.
As all the minutes of
then thereunto
the beginning of winter
comes into view.
Soon many snowflakes
will fall down to be
the whitest scenario
I’ll ever see.
The beginning of winter
comes in so cold
as that of yesterdays
found from the old.
The beginning of winter
will soon be displayed
as what that Lord God’s
Hands surely made.
While seasons move on
with snow front and center
we will see glimmers
the beginning of winter.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and maybe even the poem 🙂
It was aggravating for me to have to completely write this mess
a second time being I could not remember what I wrote in the
first one LOL. At least I hadn’t written the poem yet hehehehe.
I was though down to that point and fixing to try and find a title.
Oh well, it’s done! Milo is still lying down in the floor, but he
has since moved being I kept having to move him over because
he was right under my feet LOL. Benny is still in the living room
lying on the recliner. That’s one of his favorite places along with
under the coffee table 🙂 They keep us entertained 😉 hehehehe.
I think its now 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 3 of them being a bit Christmassy. I also
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope
you find something you like that makes you smile or maybe just
makes you think. Now it’s time for me to begin my search for
that ornery off switch, but not before I wish you a most wonderful
God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too.
So, where is that blasted off switch hiding this week? Hmmm,
I think I see ya you little varmint. Yeppers, that has to be you
making that lump in my mouse pad causing problems hehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S The last poem is one I wrote to
Judy about us 🙂

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe

Reflections

Simple reflections
often are seen
making their paintings
found in a stream.
Reflections revivals
display their game
while many look like
just as the same.
Simple emotions
reflected as glass
while many waters
move by so fast.
Some show as ripples,
some show as waves
reflecting the patterns
that many will gaze.
While the reflections
just move along
all they’re reflecting
sings the same song.

Seas of Silence

As seas of time
become the past
times conclusions
shadow’s cast.
Seas of silence
change their view
with some waves
of thereunto.
When the wind shears
make their change
seas of silence
sounds attain.
Then eruptions
from the silence
are as crashing
waves of violence.
But as the day
moves along
seas of silence
sing their song.

This Small Boy

As years of time
display their views
this small boy
might win or lose.
Hoping dreaming
what’s to come
when the year is
said and done.
This small boy
will look each day
trying searching
for a way.
Seeking Christmas
time moves on
this small boy
is dusk to dawn.
Wanting Santa
and his sleigh
to fly high
to him that day.
This small boy
of such desires
has some dreaming
Christmas fires.
Stoked and waiting
Christmastime
for a moments
peace design.
This small boy
has seen enough
of the troubles
oh so tough.
All he’s wanting
is some joy
not a simple
Christmas toy.
This small boy
of then and there
seeks a moments
answered prayer.
This small boy
with Christmas view
seeks for only
love so true.

Night Dreams

The sun goes down
to bring a gaze
found beyond
the sight of days.
Stars will twinkle
with moonshine
bringing night dreams
so divine.
Clouds might billow
in the sky
as your night dreams
do apply.
Even raindrops
might fall down
in your night dreams
sight and sound.
Winds of ventures
might blow through
in your night dreams
there and to.
Sleep is portioned
as some streams
found within
your own night dreams.

Finding Christmas

Searching for Christmas
many might go
where there are signs of
fresh fallen snow.
Seeking remembered
things from the past
becomes a venture
out of contrast.
Finding Christmas
needs you to look
and see the values
you have mistook.
It’s not the presents
or worldly gains
that describe Christmas
all it attains.
It’s about Jesus
and all His love
that is sent freely
from God above.
Finding Christmas
needs from the start
beginning the searching
within your heart.

Northern Views

Summertime’s pictures
now fade from sight
as all the minutes
tick day and night.
Soon will be wintertime
filled full of snow
seen each direction
of which I might go.
Billows of white stuff
will paint the ground
as all the winter winds
blow it around.
The book of summer
is closed for a time
to allow colors
to paint so divine.
Fall comes with glimmers
of colors to see
red, brown and yellow
before you and me.
Then as the stages
change then in sight
there will be snowflakes
found day and night.
These northern views
of stages set
are of the times
I’ll never forget.
Painted as whispers
with snowy shoes
these are my ventures
our northern views.

Cherished Thoughts

With every day
there is a time
cherish thoughts
of which to find.
Christmas blessings
long ago
cherished thoughts
that surely grow.
Timeless echoes
Christmas joy
found within
a girl and boy.
All those times
that we remember
live and breathe
within December.
Cherished thoughts
that we love so
are often found
in Christmas snow.
Even twinkling
lights thereunto
become the best
of which to view.
Scenes remembered
never lost
live within
our cherish thoughts.

Pointless Gains

Many seeking
gains and wins
are so pointless
many sins.
Looking for
that silver dollar
found within
a sinful crawler
leaves you standing
empty lives
with unending
Hellish strives.
Let your minutes
seen by many
be so grateful
for a penny.
Let Lord Jesus
fill your mind
lesser pointless
gains to find.
Find the blessings
within giving
and you’ll find
much better living.

A Star Danced

I looked up at
the nighttime sky
and saw a star
that danced awry.
It seemed to be
a dancing game
found within
a nighttime frame.
A star danced
with style and grace
and it flew
from place to place.
It might have been
just how I viewed
a little bit just
misconstrued.
Yet a star danced
in my sky
up above me
very high.
Mesmerizing
was it’s sight
found within
the dark of night.
Then I awakened
from my sleep
and found the star
was slumber deep.
It was only
just a dream
a star that danced
a moments stream.
It seemed so real
what time romanced
found within
a star that danced.

A Picture of Us

We’ve found some special
times together
that remembered
last forever.
A picture of us
upon a beach
walking together
waves in reach.
Then there’s a few
of you and I
within the waves
of southern sky.
We splashed in waves
as time moved on
in the early
mornings dawn.
A picture of us
is also found
with us walking
all around.
Searching for some
sights to see
us together
you and me.
We found some special
times that shine
now that live
inside my mind.
A picture of us
is held to my heart
as I remember
all from the start.
Yes you and I
with love so true
a picture of us
I’ll always view.
As time moves on
and older we get
a picture of us
I’ll never forget.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce
I LOVE YOU

Haiku
for Sept 28, 2013

The hours will pass
leaving glimmers of shadows
that we remember.

Within the moonlight
there are things we cannot see,
but just fathom of.

Waves of time are found
as echoes crashing ashore
leaving our memories.

Wintertime’s prelude
comes as cold winds blowing through
along with snowflakes.

Many are challenged
as each tries to hold tightly
to what that has passed.

Seasonal snowflakes
fall as wintertime comes to be
and paint all things white.

Blessings of today
might have been there yesterday,
but yet not noticed.

The sounds of winter
come as snowplows down the road
and teeth chattering.

Time related words
echo as certain moments,
so don’t speak harshly.

The wings of a bird
carry it high up in the sky
and Earthward to rest.

Flowers of springtime
will blossom after winter
if they are cared for.

Some flowers are weeds
that display so much beauty
to give chance to live.

Beyond a poolside
is another out of reach
that needs you to swim.

Lettering of signs
only glamourizes it
so that it’s noticed.

The mornings challenge
comes as a few passing clouds
that paint the blue sky.

Having some teardrops
doesn’t mean that you are weak.
It means that you care.

Now is only here,
for yesterday’s come and gone
with tomorrows hopes.

A bicycle chain
connects sprocket to back wheel
as our chains in life.

Nobody knows all,
for we have limitations
on what that we know.

Allowing trouble
to infest your many thoughts
can cause destruction.

Believing in spirits
opens your mind up to God
and His Son Jesus.

Now is a moment
that will soon be in the past
as just memories.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How are you and how was your weekend? Ours has been pretty
nice. We took Benny and Milo for a fall drive up north of us a bit
to take some pictures. Of course we were just a little early for any
fall colors :), but we did get a lot of great pictures. We might try
again for some fall colors a little bit later in the year. The weather
was great and Benny and Milo enjoyed getting out of the car ever
so often to look around and pee hehehe. Between us both, we got
well over 300 pictures. Hehehe of course we got a lot of repeats,
being we were often taking pictures of the same thing :). Yet we
did get a lot of great pictures of both of us and the boys. I took
a lot of pictures as normal while Judy was driving and I got some
great scenery pictures. This morning started off with some heavy
winds and rain. LOL, I looked at Milo and said, I do hope you
don’t need to go outside anytime soon, because if ya do, you’re
gonna get drowned LOL. Fortunately, they both were able to
wait for the rain and wind to subside. Hehehe when I opened the
front door to check, I noticed that the passenger side window
of the car was opened a slight. So I donned some clothes and in
the wind and rain and closed it. Yes, it was my side of the car LOL!
I had thought I rolled it up. I must of not rolled it up fully hehehe.
Thank God the wind and rain was coming from the south, because
my window is facing the north hehehe. Judy’s going to go and
help with her mother tomorrow while her sister and husband take
care of some things, so it will be just me and the boys hanging
out together hehehe. A little guy time :). OK, so they are dogs.
It’s about the closest thing to guy time I will ever get around
here. There isn’t anybody that wants to hang with me up here.
Benny and Milo are good boys, but they ain’t human, although
we do treat em like they are human quite often hehehehehehehe.
Milo has sure come a long way, because when we first got him
October of last year, he didn’t like to be held, but now he loves
it and begs me to hold him and rub his belly :). He does like his
little brother Benny and will roll over and wait for me to rub him.
We weren’t sure how Benny and Milo would get along, being there
are 7 years age difference in them, but it was almost immediately
that they began playing together and sleeping together. It’s like
they were always together. Yes, the Pearce’s Place has been
blessed. Only God can do all that has been done. I’ve had my
share of problems with computers and lack of anybody to spend
time with other than Judy and the boys, but I am surviving and
finding happiness through it all. Of course I would love to find
a friend to spend time with and even jam with, but maybe in time
God will provide if it’s meant to be. We never truly understand
what God’s plans are, being He sees our future and all we can
see is right now. Let God have right now and your future and
all will be well. 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 will work for the title for today’s new
poem. So, it’s away I go to that place of my recollection that
I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I might of stumbled
on a good title, but the proof is in the pudding so to say hehehe.
Here goes…..

God Will Provide

While we’re in wanting
what now does perceive
God will provide what
all that we need.
So often greediness
shadows our windows
feeling with many
times innuendos.
God will provide us
with good me and you
feeling our hearts with
Him oh so true.
Let not your wanting’s
to guide every step
leaving you later
with life so inept.
Seek for His blessings
while doing your best
and you will surely
not always detest.
Give God you right now
and future designs
and you will find then
some much better times.

There ya go! Hehehe I have a hard time coming up with new
titles. When you’ve written over 8000 poems, it does get hard.
Most of the times when I can’t think of a new title, I will turn
the TV on the Moodscapes music radio. Often I will see a title
that I haven’t used. Moodscapes plays New Age music that
has no singing. it’s just peaceful music and I can often write
a poem/lyrics to the music hehehe. Anyways that’s what I do.
So, what else is happening around here that I have failed to
mention? I can’t think of anything at the moment hehehehe.
If I do, I will try and put it in next weeks journal. So I guess
it’s time for me to tell you what I tell you most every week and
that is, I wrote some more poems and haiku. Yeppers, I once
again wrote all of them today except for one which I wrote
last night. Yep, 10 more poems with 3 of them being a bit
Christmassy :). Also I wrote once agin 22 haiku for all of my
haiku lovers out there. I hope you enjoy a few of either or
both. Now it’s time for me to begin my search for that dumb
off switch that needs lessons in hiding hehehe, but not before
I wish you a most wonderful God filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now to find that confounded
off switch. There ya are you silly thing. It took me a little
while to find ya this time LOL, but even still, hiding under
my billfold was in fact a new spot, but it’s right in freaking
front of me hehehe. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Paisley Patterned

While clouds drift on
they leave their style
in the sky
found with a smile.
While they linger
days unfold
moments gathered
stories told.
With their travels
far and wide
the clouds find ways
to coincide.
As the blue skies
come in view
the clouds of white
are there and to.
Paisley patterned
days designs
bring alive
some scenic times.

Within The Night

As sunshine fades
with lesser light
the times are seen
within the night.
Sights and sounds
are magnified
with what shadows
have applied.
So many fear
what night bestows
because of what
the less it shows.
Their fear is found
as moments seen
while not knowing
what they mean.
It all begins
with little light
as sunshine fades
within the night.

You And Me

We’ve walked beside the ocean
and held hands all the way
as we watched the minutes
pass from day to day.
We’ve seen so many blessings
you and me together
in the days we’ve counted
that seemed as forever.
We’ve watched the mornings start
with sunshine you and me
bringing in our shadows
of which we daily see.
We’ve driven many places
and found so much to view
you and me together
as each day starts anew.
We’ve held hands through our troubles
and made it through them all,
for we stayed together
through the large and small.
You and me are blessed with
God’s Own Grace Divine
as we walk together
in our time to time.

Graceful

Believing in Heaven
gives hope for a life
filled up with blessings
not so full of strife.
Graceful emotions
will come into view
when time has blossomed
your life so anew.
We might find struggles
in our every day
but Heaven’s waiting
in its peaceful way.
Let not your worries
to prevent your path.
Find now so graceful
not so full of wrath.
Look for the blessings
that God’s given you
and then so graceful
start your life anew.

The Touch

With the touch
of Christmas while
there is found
an awesome smile.
The touch of love
with painted dreams
found within
Lord God extremes.
That special time
of Christmas joy
that is found
the real McCoy.
The touch of peace
that comes to view
when it lives
in me and you.
Christmastime
we love so much
is found joyful
as the touch.

As Now Arrives

Step by step
the moments come
bringing in
the mornings sun.
As now arrives
with its desires
it brings forth
what time acquires.
Things enlightened
now and then
as now arrives
to then begin.
Soon the minutes
gather hours
as now arrives
what it empowers.
Then those times
of yesteryear
become some things
so very clear.
As now arrives
it shows a face
filled with blessings
from God’s grace.

Crystal Lake

Gentle ripples
speak their words
to a nearby
flock of birds.
A crystal lake
of gentle dreams
gives a place
reflecting beams.
Some birds will come
and land in place
the crystal lakes
reflective face
and with their sight
and splashing sound
the birds will then
be surely found.
Floating on the
Crystal lake
with reflections
that they make.

The Weathers Changes

Pictures, sounds and feelings
the weather does display
as it changes often
in its day to day.
The weathers changes become
what that many find
as they look around them
from their time to time.
Emotions are so often
what weather has brought true
in the many patterns
clouds and skies of blue.
So if you’re finding sorrow
in now and then in time
the weathers changes might be
bringing that design.
Look beyond the storm clouds
and see the skies of blue
that can become blessings
living within you.

Christmas Is Knocking

Now I see portions
of summers demise
as I look daily
up at changing skies.
The seasons are changing
as autumn arrives
showing the changes
as winter revives.
Christmas is knocking
upon autumns door
in that great season
that I do adore.
Wintertime’s snowflakes
will then float on down
becoming as patterns
that Christmas is found.
Christmas is knocking
as minutes pass on
bringing its beauty
from dusk unto dawn.
Yet now I must just
wait patiently
for Christmas is knocking,
but not yet to see.

A Boy With A Drum

A story is written
for many one day
that sought a baby
from so faraway.
The story has mentioned
a boy with a drum
that brought to Jesus
a rumatumtum.
He played all his rhythms
as best that he could
for Baby Jesus
in a manger of wood.
Then Baby Jesus
looked up with pure joy
for he gave blessings
to the little drummer boy.
The little boy smiled then
and played some more
for Little Baby Jesus
that he did adore.
That moment blossomed
the meanings to see
that Jesus only
wants love you and me.
He came for our lacking
of perfect desires
and later died for
what Heaven transpires.
God knew we wouldn’t
be able to live
without Lord Jesus
to daily forgive.
So this is how Christmas
was surely begun
in a manger for Jesus
from a boy with a drum.

Haiku
for Sept 22, 2013

As we remember
our thoughts might be filled up with
clouded perception.

A flower of time
displays its emotions smile
through the scenery.

Memories beauty
comes as so many flavors
that we might perceive.

The windsock is filled
with the days many breezes
showing directions.

Many will stumble
through the easy things in life
because of sureness.

The seasons stories
are written in many books
that change day to day.

With but a glimmer
of hope from a little child
miracles begin.

Windy rainy days
bring in a fragrance of change
for new days to come.

Learning from others
needs a good viewpoint of eyes
to see the mistakes.

While many are watching
you might fall down a few times,
but they will also.

Leaves on the trees
fall to Earth during autumn
to welcome winter.

Knowing a lesson
and actually using it
displays our wisdom.

So many will find you
in most unfortunate times
and not understand.

Morning brings us chances
to try and do things better
and learn from what’s done.

Links to yesterday
are found as choices we made
so learn from the links.

Forging a lifestyle
needs be done with much concern
for all the outcomes.

Tomorrow comes quickly
while we might think we have time,
so make good today.

As a wave rolls in
it leaves portions of itself
strewn about the beach.

The acts of lying
leaves ones without trust in you
which might destroy you.

Time has a pattern
that will tick on with a smile
or leave you frowning.

Beyond emotions
lies the shadows of our thoughts
which often deceive.

The hopes for mankind
live in the threshold of God
through His Son Jesus.

Heaven’s Doors

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How are you doing these days? Judy and I are doing fairly well.
The boys are as ornery as always LOL. We had a bad storm come
through Wednesday. I think 2 tornadoes set down about 20 miles
away from us or thereabouts. We were not in the path thank God.
We did though have a lot of rain and even some hail. There was
also a lot of high winds, but we didn’t blow away LOL. Judy and
I were outside taking pictures of the clouds and lightning hehehe.
I know, silly huh! Hey we both love to take pictures :). It got a
bit warm up here Friday, but only in the mid 80’s. It’s more like
it should be now LOL. Today’s high was around 67 F. Right now
it’s 61 F degrees at a little after 6 PM. Tuesday morning we have
a freeze watch. It’s supposed to get down to 30-32 F degrees, but
that’s all part of living up here LOL. I never accept the forecast
as written in stone, being hehehe they are guessing ya know LOL.
The definition of forecast is “Predict in advance” ya know hehehe.
So, what else is going on up this way? Hmm, I didn’t write any
poetry or haiku until after 1 PM today LOL. I did though get it
all written, but I had to pause for a brief to fix Judy and I some
food to eat :). I fixed her some waffles and sausage and made
myself some eggs, sausage and toast. We take turns cooking
and all just as my mom and dad used to do. The boys wanted
some of our food, but we pointed to the floor where they have
food to eat. They finally realized they weren’t gonna get any
of our food and ate their own like good boys. Yeppers, they
are spoiled, but we insist on them eating their food, not ours.
Ours isn’t good for them. Of course once in a blue moon we
will give them a piece of our sausage, but not enough for them
to become expectant of it LOL. So for those of you that are
playing Farm Town on Facebook, I guess you noticed that
there has been another farm added. Judy and I have already
bought it with our Farm Coins hehehe. Now we both have 20
farms :). Talk about a lot to keep us busy hehehehehehehe.
We have 20 farms on both of our profiles LOL! Ok, so for
those of you that could care less, onto another topic hehehe.
Tomorrows high is supposed to be 54 F degrees and it looks
like there is no rain in the forecast for this week. Judy and
I are planning on taking the boys in the next few days and
going on a picture taking drive. We might even see a few of
the early fall colors. Anyways, that’s our plans, but plans
can be changed if they have to. I’m hoping though that they
aren’t changed. This should be a perfect week for a drive.
In any sense, we will one day! So, what else is happening
around the Pearce’s Place? Actually it’s been fairly quiet
around here. We were getting worried about the boys due
to them not eating and all, but it just seems they were both
having a bad day and they are back to their old ornery selves
agin today. I sometimes wish that they could talk and tell me
what’s ailing them, but hehehe then they probably wouldn’t
shut up LOL. Oh well, they seem to be feeling better today.
God has blessed us with a home full of love. Yes, we have
our bad days, but that makes us appreciate the good times
even more so. Like good and evil. Without the evil in the
world, we would not have anything to compare with. There
has to be one with the other here on Earth so that we can
grow from the lessons. Thank God for the many lessons
we have learned. Of course many things are hard to face,
being they hurt and kill others, but with God, there is no
loss, but a gain. Heaven’s doors are opened awaiting for
those that have done what God wanted or He sees that
they belong. We are not the ones that determine whom
that will go to Heaven and whom that shall end in Hell.
God is the only one that decides that. For what you might
think you know about a person, might not be what’s truly
going on in their heart. We can only judge ones on what
they’ve done and where they will go here on Earth. Let
God do what He does best. Now I believe it’s time once
again for me to be taking my little journey back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can find a good word
or phrase that might work for the title for today’s brand
new poem. So, it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I might have found a good title, but
first I’ve gotta check to see if I have used yet. So OK,
it looks like I haven’t used it. Here goes. I hope it
comes out making sense LOL.

Heaven’s Doors

As many find their endings
here upon the Earth
Heaven’s door’s are waiting
new life giving birth.
As we’re born and gather
daily with our stride
we need always carry
Jesus deep inside.
Heaven’s doors are waiting
you and I each day
yet so many lose it
when they cease to pray.
Heaven’s doors are opened
awaiting you and I
when our Earthly bodies
shrivel up and die.
Now is not the ending
for our day and time,
for Heaven’s doors are waiting
meeting God sublime.
Let not death of loved ones
wear upon your soul,
for it is the purpose
needed to be whole.
Because one day in Heaven
you will surely see
all those gone before you
healthy as can be.

Ok, so there ya go. I hope that made a little bit of sense to ya.
I guess you could say I am always deep in thought and it does
get hard to rest LOL. No matter where I am, it seems that my
thoughts overwhelm me in poetic verse. hehehe. Yes, I said
ANYWHERE! I have always been that way. It’s God’s gift
to me that I try my best to share with others. Think about it 🙂
I wrote 10 poems and 22 haiku also today not to mention this
poem I just got finished writing LOL. I have no idea of how
that I am able to do that other than God has blessed me with
this gift. We all have gifts, some maybe not so pronounced,
but important none the less. We are all spokes to the wheel of
life. When we work together we make life roll a little more
smoothly. Some are caregivers and some are the ones that
are needed to help others grow. Like I said before, bad and
good, wrong and right are the benefactors to helping us to
become better. A man lifting weights without any weights
on the bar, would not get stronger. It’s with the added bits
of weights/struggles that we grow. My moms sister Aunt
Jody died a few days ago. Her brain started hemorrhaging
and it wasn’t long. Please keep my mom in your prayers.
Also my moms mom (my grandmother) will be 106 this
coming Friday the 20th 🙂 Grandmother, I love you and
wish I could come and wish you happy birthday, but I’m
pretty sure you know I love you. Mom, I love you too.
I hope to see you again one day. Maybe God willing we
can either make it to Texas sometime or you can make
it up here. None the less, I love ya bunches. Thanks
for being the best :). Now , before I find something else
to write about hehehe, I need to be telling ya what I tell
ya every week and that us, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yea, I know, I already told ya hehehehehe.
But none the less, I wrote 10 more poems with 3 of em
being sort of Christmassy. Also, I wrote 22 more haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope you find a
few that you like of either or both :). Now, to find that
confounded off switch, but not before I wish you a most
wonderful God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. OK, where’s that dad burned off
switch hiding this week? I see ya dude. You’re getting
a little bit better at hiding, but still hiding under my nose
spray ain’t quite good enough. I’ve got a stopped up
nose and I’m using the nose spray. Maybe next week
ya think you can find a better hiding place hehehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe 🙂

When Shadows Fall

When morning comes
with its surprise
the shadows form
from sunny skies.
When shadows fall
they form a place
sometimes landing
on a face.
The seasons change
with minutes on
making shadows
change at dawn.
Time then beckons
very new
when shadows fall
upon our view.
The days surprise
will come at glance
when shadows fall
with song and dance.

While The Moon Shines

As nighttime breaks
with its designs
the stars will dance
while the moon shines.
A beams of moonlight
from up above
will become as a
night of love.
While the moon shines
it helps us to see
the sights all around
a minute degree.
Many find slumber
while the moon shines
and others dance on
as night entwines.
A journal is written
with all that is said
while the moon shines
up over our head.

Tower of Thrills

Like a roller coaster
many will ride
a tower of thrills
until they have died.
Not thinking clearly
how it will end
on a roller coaster
that thrills transcend.
A tower of thrills
can surely mislead
in the excitement
how that you’ll bleed.
Let not your seeking
to lead you to pain
a tower of thrills
as just but a gain.
Look and see clearly
what you are wanting
before it comes as
painful and haunting.

The Life We See

Riding a wave
of now and then
can often lead
to where we’ve been.
The life we see
might seem unfair,
but it’s often
just a glare.
Sights we’ve found
and just perceived
as what all
we have believed.
The life we see
might not be true,
for it might
be me and you.
So let God show
what is to be
and put it in
the life we see.

The Atlantic Breeze

While I’m alone
in this room full of time
the Atlantic breeze
comes into my mind.
The oceans waves
rolling in with the tide
live now as dreams
found deep down inside.
The Atlantic breeze
that I remember
is now just a
burning ember.
Pictures and videos
I see time agin
remind of the place
that we have been.
The solitude style
this place faraway
the Atlantic breeze
lives on now today.
Her and I splashing
as waves come ashore
wanting stay there
a little bit more.
Us with our cameras
and wonderful view
the Atlantic breeze
is me and you.
We watch the birds
that fly and land
while we’re walking
hand in hand.
The Atlantic breeze
is another dawn
that lives within us
on and on.

From Bill Pearce (ME)

Amidst A Smile

So many seasons
bring us a page
written with wording
found on a stage.
Seen often stirring
is wintertime’s while
found then with Christmas
amidst a smile.
Jingling music
found in the snow
also with sounds of
HoHoHoHo.
Amidst a smile
there lives a dream
found with Christmas
all agleam.
The seasons journey
far and wide
leads ones to
what God’s applied.
His Son Jesus
is all the while
the reason for Christmas
amidst a smile.

Many May Follow

Within our footsteps
our footprints show
where we truly
always go.
Many may follow
thinking you’re true
and then become as
dumb as you.
Don’t let your footsteps
deceive what you say.
Know that Lord Jesus
is watching each day.
Many may follow
so be of your best
and don’t let footsteps
to wrongly attest.
Let God to help your
footsteps in time
guided by Jesus
found so divine.
Sure you will falter
footsteps you make,
but in your footprints
Hell will not quake.
For we are human
and learn as we go
many will follow
and maybe grow.
Honest mistakes
we made through time
others can learn
a better design.
Letting God’s blessings
shine through and through
what is much better
for us then to do.

The First Snow

Onwards the weather
changes in time
making its journey
what that I find.
Found as a glimmer
seasons delight
when I see blessings
within my sight.
The first snow falls
so wintery
making joy
for me to see.
Onwards the weather
displays so true
the first snow falling
in my view.
I wait now hoping
dreaming of
that Christmastime
so full of love.
The first snow found
brings that alive
the sight of Christmas
in my eyes.
I seek the moments
there and then
within Christmas
winters wind.
Those blessed sights
that come and go
are Christmas dreams
with the first snow.
Found fluffy white
with a big snow man
and a snow angel
displayed so grand.
Christmastimes moments
come into sight
with the first snow
that I delight.

The Fragrance of Christmas

Looking at the sunrise
that glimmers and shines
I can smell Christmas
its wonderful times.
The fragrance of Christmas
comes in with a scent
found in my minds eye
the greatest extent.
The flavors I’ve tasted
as Christmastime came
are none that no other
has of the same.
All of the aromas
that I smell so well
the fragrance of Christmas
is best in detail.
All of my taste buds
tingle with thrill
while seeking Christmas
of which to fulfill.
The fragrance of Christmas
is so divine
even with the scent of
the Christmas tree pine.
Yes even snowflakes
have their own flavor
found within Christmas
of which that I savor.
It seems that everything
Christmas bestows
brings out a fragrance
found in my nose.

Hidden Treasures

While walking going
here and there
we might miss
what’s found somewhere.
Hidden treasures
missed by sight
that we hurried
day and night.
Things so blessed
sight and sound
hidden treasures
all around.
Sometimes treasures
hidden true
might be right
in front of you.
It will often
need us found
looking there
not all around.
Often blessings
God has given
need our hurry
lesser driven.
Take the time now
look and see
hidden treasures
given free.

Haiku
for Sept 15, 2013

Today is a time
that will not be repeated
but just memorized.

Flowers of summer
find their end days coming soon
as winter comes true..

Yesterdays flowers
might of blossomed with beauty,
but fade within time.

While minutes tick on
our lives will come and then end
only to find peace.

Cherished are shadows
that emulate our feelings
which came with pure joy.

Life we remember
might be a bit imagined
for we were younger.

Nobody’s perfect,
but so many think they are
and fall prey to DUMB.

Beyond this moment
our lives will find some changes
that will surprise us.

Leaving a footprint
in the places that you’ve been
can teach you later.

Within the Earth’s soil
lives chances for things to live
or wither and die.

Looking for blessings
might find you overlooking
what’s right in your view.

Times that we ignore
could be the most important
and haunt us daily.

Scenes found in slumber
are often dreams we’re wanting,
but yet not needing.

As heartbeats are found
there are many missing beats
that need somebody.

The graven image
of who we think we’re to be
might be illusion.

With lucid thinking
comes chances for tomorrow
that can be better.

Mornings with showers
bring aromas of raindrops
that fall from the skies.

When summer’s at end
we find fall and its glory
with colors divine.

A quick thinking thought
can become a slow problem
lasting a good while.

The sights seen outside
can enhance your days thinking
so look cautiously.

Beyond yesterday
lives the things found in today
that we must accept.

Now is just waiting
for then to arrive with thoughts
to make better now.

From Time To Time

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Did ya miss me last week? I wasn’t feeling well and wasn’t
able to sit at the PC for long periods of time due to my side
hurting. I think I pulled a muscle while using that darned
boot that the doctor gave me at the emergency room for my
Achilles Tendinitis. The boot doesn’t sit flat and allows my
body to rock which caused me to twist my side while trying
to get up our front steps LOL. In any sense, my ankle is
much better now and I bought a back brace and wore it for
a few days and it seemed to stop my side from hurting. It
was making it so I couldn’t even lay down to sleep it hurt
so much. So now I’m back to my regular on going ailments
to which I’ve grown so accustomed to having hehehe. Now,
how have you been? We’ve been hanging in there as the
weather seems to be getting colder every day. We had a
freeze the other day at 30 F degrees and it looks like we
shall get a few more being tonight’s low is supposed to be
34 F degrees LOL. Right now at 2 PM it’s 55 F degrees.
It’s supposed to be a high of 59 degrees. It’s raining right
now and supposed to rain off and on all throughout the week.
Sometimes it feels as though we live in a rain forest LOL.
Of course minus the forest hehehe, but, we do have quite
a few trees ya know :). We don’t need fans much anymore
other than to maybe circulate the air in the house. Benny
and Milo are doing well. I was up and about for a bit this
morning due to my shoulder aching and the boys joined me
in here in the PC room. After I took some aspirin and all
I went back to bed and the boys wanted to join me and so
I said come on up. Milo hopped right up, but Benny just
waited for me to pick him up and plop him down between
Judy and I. They both then went fast asleep hehehe with
Milo snoring ever so often right along with his mom zzzz.
I got up a bit later and took a nice hot shower. That made
me feel a lot better and so I stayed up. Judy had gotten
up while I was in the shower and so here I am writing to
you :). Judy was fixing to come and give me a hug before
she went into the kitchen to make us some pancakes and
Milo got right between us in his way of saying him first :).
So I gave him a hug and then I gave Judy a hug and kiss.
Judy said she was in the mood for pancakes. Sounds good
to me :). I hope I can get this finished before she get the
pancakes cooked LOL. If I can’t I will have to take a bit
of a pause. You’ll have to bear with me, my eyesight is
on one of its bad days and I can hardly see the monitor
and anything I’ve typed. My potassium must be really
low. Ok, so lower than normal for me LOL. It always
stays at around 40 percent on a good day. According to
the doctors I shouldn’t be alive with the levels that it
drops to often. Yet, here I am, still giving Judy and the
boys a run for their money hehehe. Oh look, the sun is
peeking out from the clouds for a moment and it’s 57 F
degrees now :). Oooh a warming! Soon winter will be
upon us and we will not see another day like today until
next year LOL. Yeppers, when dear old winter gets set
into motion we won’t see temperatures over 30 F degrees.
It’ll become a white sheet of snow! I love to see the first
snow and love to play in it, but it does get old after say
the 4th or 5th month LOL. Oh well, everyplace has its
upsides and downsides. We have a few neighbors that
come up from Florida for summer and go back home for
winter. Once again I ask, how on Earth did Florida get
to be known as the sunshine state? It gets more rain
and hurricanes than anybody LOL. It should be called
the hurricane state. I’d never move there. There are
many other states I’d never move to. I hate tornadoes
and so I’d never move to Oklahoma or thereabouts and
I hate earthquakes and fires so I would never move to
California. Yes we get fires elsewhere, but not quite as
much. There are even a few earthquakes in other states,
not quite as many as California. Of course I’m speaking
of the USA and not including Hawaii hehehe. It seems
that Judy finished making pancakes before I finished,
so I must stop here and eat yummy pancakes Mmmmmm.
OK, so she was just bringing in the syrup hehehehehehe.
I have time to write a bit more! The cartoons are on in
the bedroom and Milo is plopped down on the end of the
bed watching them LOL. Our boys love cartoons. He’s
watching Johnny Test :). God has blessed us with some
wonderful boys/dogs. They are much more than dogs to
Judy and I. They are family! Well Judy made it in with
the pancakes and I stopped and ate. I can see a little
better now. I went to take a few pictures outside our
front door and Benny wanted to go out. I took a picture
and my camera said “change batteries” and so I had to
go back in and get some charged batteries. Benny was
still outside trying to find a good place to go potty LOL.
He is so picky about where he goes potty hehehe. Silly
boy! Well when I came back with the camera, Judy
was at the door watching Milo and Benny. Milo had to
go potty also. So I went and sat on the porch and took
a few pictures of them not in potty state LOL. Our dear
neighbors are mowing again. They just fired up their
mowers. One thing for sure, they won’t be mowing when
winter gets here LOL. Not unless they have converted
them into snow blowers hehehe, which I ‘m pretty sure
they haven’t :). So life continues on around the Pearce’s
Place. We are very thankful for all that God has given
us. He watches over us always. I’m also sure that many
angels are watching over us. I can feel them from time
to time. If you’re having struggles, then take a step
back out of yourself and look and see what others are
dealing with, but still smiling. You might find that your
problems are not so unique and that there is still a way
to smile and enjoy life. Let God help you to see the
blessings that might be right in front of you. Now with
that said, I guess it’s time for me to begin my little
journey back through all that I’ve written here to see if
I can find a good word or phrase that 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. I think I may have found
a good title, but first I’ve gotta check to make sure
I haven’t already used it. LOL surprise, I haven’t
used it YET. So, here goes nothing. I hope I can put
together some words that make sense to ya :).

From Time To Time

As seasons change
and days are found cold
the winters remembrance
is same from the old.
Then from time to time
those snowflakes that fall
come with their beautiful
scenes over all.
Blessings so fluffy
that fall from the sky
are from time to time
God’s Own reply.
Displaying beauty
that remind us so true
how Jesus died
for me and for you.
The white snow as pages
that cover our sin
are from time to time
found deep within.
Learn how that Jesus
gave us a place
found then in Heaven
all from His Grace.
Then from time to time
take note and see
all of the blessings
that He gave for free.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and also maybe even the
poem. Yeppers, it’s been an eventful week around here.
Judy went and spent some quality girl time with her sisters
and her mother Friday. The boys and I stayed home and
played. Of course we ended up watching TV. They soon
fell asleep in here with me. They’re good boys. They were
sleeping so sound, they didn’t hear when Judy came home.
She hollered I’m home and they went ecstatic LOL. They
missed mom :). Oh yea, here’s some news, my mom has
finally joined Facebook and has begun adding the family.
Now she can chat with Judy’s sisters as well as us. Also
she can take a look at all of our pictures that she might not
of seen. I send her many off and on, but not all of them,
so I’m sure she will find many that she has never seen :).
I love you mom and I miss you :). Well there’s not much
else to report from up here, so I guess I need to be telling
you what I tell you every week of course aside from last
week LOL and that is, I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems, but I wrote an extra
one Tuesday (Sept 3) and shared it on Facebook and so
I will share it as well. So that ups the count to 11 poems
with two of the poems being Christmas poems HoHoHo.
I also once again wrote 22 haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. Nope no extras LOL! I hope you find a few
of either that you like. Now it’s time for me to begin my
search for that old off switch, but not before I wish you
a most wonderful God filled week. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Ok, now where’s that ornery
off switch hiding this week. It’s a had over a week to
find a decent hiding place LOL. OH for Heaven’s sake,
couldn’t ya find a better place to hide other than under
my keyboard. Remember, you make it wobble hehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10+1 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Take Some Time

With points of time
from here to there
you might find
sometimes unfair.
Things you’ve seen
as moments more
that a dream
has not in store.
Nightmares thrust
into your view
as some dust
from thereunto .
Let those moments
fade away
through atonements
day to day.
Leave those bitter
times you saw
as atwitter
filled with awe.
God will help you
then and there
if you’ll do
a little prayer.
Take some time
for Him On High
yours and mine
our Adonai.

Faded Memories

So long ago
those days in time
now are faded
from my mind.
I often stare
into the night
to find the faded
black and white.
Faded memories
I recall
here and there
from spring to fall.
So long ago
those times I found
were just ticking
around and round.
Yet now today
as faded views
I can surely
see the news.
Things I saw
as winter came
giving blessings
to attain.
Christmas scenes
of long ago
were with scenes
artificial snow.
Those Christmas lights
red, blue and green
were the greatest
ever seen.
Faded memories
now are found
growing stronger
sight and sound.
All of the songs
that played each day
now are as
our Christmas way.
Every moment
my eye sees
remembers faded
memories.

Rains of Summer

While summers heat
is found so warm
the rains of summer
give their charm.
The waters pouring
down to Earth
giving essence
of their worth.
Rains of summer
find a river
to fall down
and then deliver.
Making great
the waters wide
with their liquid
then applied.
Rains of summer
wet a face
with their moments
times embrace.
The simple sign
of rains of summer
often comes
with sounds of thunder.
As the lightning
lights the sky
the rains of summer
then reply.

Golden Dreams

As we walk forwards
our lives leave a trail
sometimes with minutes
as a golden detail.
Those golden dreams
that we each remember
often are found as
times burning ember.
While looking at those
times we recall
we might forget what
did then befall.
It’s how we see then
while looking back
finding that times were
then not so black.
Remembering friendships
times rushing streams
found as the making of
our golden dreams.

Christmas Winds

So often blessings
blow in as a smile
while many look on
and miss all the while.
The Christmas winds blow
as jingles at night
making some sleigh bells
to surely delight.
Christmas lights swaying
within the nights breeze
hung and strung nicely
in many trees.
Houses all decked out
then to and fro
as Christmas winds give
their seasonal blow.
Blowing in snowflakes
as white as can be
the Christmas winds show
what my eyes can see.
All of the blessings
that blow all around
I find each Christmas
right there on the ground.

Maybe God Willing

If time concurs
what I’m to do
maybe God willing
it will come true.
Things will happen
as time moves on
that will leave me
another dawn.
Maybe God willing
things will be seen
not as a nightmare,
but as a dream.
Yet if I hurry
choosing my path
I might be making
my own aftermath.
Maybe God willing
it will be OK
if I will take time
to kneel down and pray.
Surely if I will
cease my fulfilling
I will find goodness
maybe God willing.
But yet in God’s time
and not in mine
I will find blessings
of His design.

A Rainy Day

Summers end
is close at hand
a rainy day
I shall withstand.
Scenes of summers
black and white
now are rainy
day and night.
The flowers bloom
to soon be gone
as the seasons
then moves on.
A rainy day
that now beholds
gives me sight
as time unfolds.
The days are found
as summers end
soon to be as
autumns friend.
A rainy day
displays its view
here and there
and thereunto.

Reunion of Clouds

With winds up high
the clouds float by
from here to there
with their own flair.
A reunion of clouds
as fluffy shrouds
hung up above
with shapes of a dove.
They make a sight
each day and night
showing communion
of their reunion.
They join together
to display the weather
while they float by
as clouds in the sky.
A simple display
of theirs day to day
is found to see
by you and me.

A Hurried Thought

Hurrying thinking
what you’re to do
can often bring
some troubles to you.
A hurried thought
of which you found
might just bring
pure Hell around.
Find some peace
in what you think
to not make time
a ship to sink.
Think it over
truly so
before you choose
where you’re to go.
For time can find
a troubled lot
within the mind
a hurried thought.

I Might Be Wrong

Now as I’m writing
the thoughts that I think
sometimes as printed
on paper with ink,
I might be wrong
or I might be right
so check for your self
in the words now in sight.
I’m only sharing
the things that I’ve learned
that have helped greatly
for times I’ve discerned.
Yet, I might be wrong
still truly my friend
so don’t let my words
to be as your end.
Open the bible
and read for yourself
words that are written
from Lord God Himself.
Also read lessons
that God helped to see
and find the blessings
that Jesus gave free.

In Shadows Wake

As light is gathered
with moments we see
in shadows wake
are found you and me.
Then also echoes
of timeless that’s found
in shadows wake
might be sight and sound.
Even the displays
of here thereabout
in shadows wake
might be in and out.
Maybe on outside
or found then within
in shadows wake
can be her or him.
Moments remembered
or just then displayed
in shadows wake
are lives lemonade.
Found as a footstep
or maybe a ghost
in shadows wake
displays all the most.
Within the minutes
and hours we make
are many glimmers then
in shadows wake.

Haiku
for Sept 2, 2013

With just but a thought
you can change your emotions
and then your actions.

Time is just numbers
counted as lives move forwards
with our memories.

Harnessing today
needs a grasp of the moments
that fly by your eyes.

Timid perceptions
can become many hindrances
based on what you fear.

A journal written
brings words from deep down inside
that might embarrass.

A fly on the wall
perceives all real quietly,
while not understood.

Believing in love
needs to first understand it
to see its full sight.

Windows of summer
often look like a mere haze
as it fades from view.

Hope within passion
comes alive when it is true
and God is amidst.

Pitter patter sounds
make their rainy announcements
as clouds then unleash.

The Springtime flowers
live on through summertime’s scenes
to fall prey to fall.

Things are just silly
when involving what you want
that you do not need.

A mornings display
has one chance to impress you
and then it is gone.

The sounds of thunder
echo across the valley
with rumbling tides.

Finding a mirror
and then truly looking in
can show who you are.

With many heartaches
comes the lessons to be learned
as what not to do.

Loneliness gathers
as a fly on fly paper
while ones go around.

Within a heartbeat
is a moment that lives on
as a memory.

Love is a window
that many forget to clean
to see it clearly.

Looks are deceivers
that many hide with makeup
not showing the truth.

Tomorrows doorway
might have trash in front of it
that’s needing cleaning.

Beyond the moonlight
holds imaginations path
found within a dream.
