So We Haven’t

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s a bright and sunny day today and slightly warm at 82 F
degrees at 4 PM.  The temperature is supposed to drop by
about 20 degrees tomorrow though.  Yeppers,  tonight’s low
is supposed to be 59 F and tomorrows high is supposed to be
LOL get this,  58 F degrees and Tuesday’s high is forecasted
at 57 F degrees.  So go figure.  We’ve had tons of TV DISH
problems for the passed couple of weeks.  I have no idea of
what the Heck is going on.  I finally got fed up with it and had
the (SO CALLED) dish tech guy come out and he replaced
our dish and our receiver box Thursday,  but that obviously
wasn’t the problem as I have heard from DISH customers
from all over the USA that have had the same problems and
beginning yesterday,  we were with and without a signal for
most of the day and on into the night.  Their excuse was
that in Gilbert Arizona there was a bad storm and they say
that the DISH uplink is there.  What?????  You mean to
tell me that they haven’t even ventured to set up multiple
station uplinks.  We’re quite a way from freaking Arizona.
LOL that goes to show ya,  ignorance still exist hehehehe.
Anyways,  the TV reception is good today,  but if it happens
again,  we might find ourselves going back to Direct TV
even though they aren’t that great either at least not up
here LOL.  Oh well,  off of my bickers with DISH TV :p.
Oh yea,  being with all of the aggravation yesterday,  my
poems and haiku did not get written,  but I managed to
get them all written just a bit ago :).  Right now,  it’s just
me and Milo in here.  Benny’s lying on the futon in our
spare room at the other end of the house hehehehehehe.
Ever since I pulled out the futon from couch mode,  it
seems that Benny loves to lie on it.  I laid in there with
him the other day or should I say he laid in there with me.
Our bed mattress is still giving me problems.  I hope we
can get us a new one someday soon,  but que sera sera
as Doris Day sung hehehe.  I just looked outside and
there’s not a cloud in the sky :).  Yes,  it’s just the boys
and I again.  It’s the Sunday ritual :).  We’ve gotten used
to it the boys and I.  Right now I’m listening to the DISH
radio station (MOODSCAPES).  It’s very tranquil.  Judy
and I sleep to this music after our favorite cartoons go
off (LOONYTOONS) hehehe.  Yes,  we’re night owls :).
Judy and I are still taking the boys for walks in the field
as often as we can.  There are a few days that neither
Judy nor I have the strength to make the walk,  but
we manage to do it at least 4 or 5 days a week.  Benny
loves it when he can go running in the field.  Milo also
likes it,  but his running is limited hehehe.  He’s old,
but he still plays chase with Benny out there and in here.
He has his moments LOL.  My stomach is talking to
me.  I might need to eat something,  or go the restroom.
LOL I can hardly ever tell the difference until I get
that freaking undeniable feeling inside that says go to
the bathroom hehehe.  Being without a colon and a
3rd of my small intestines tends to mess with me LOL.
I don’t ever really get hungry,  my stomach just feels
weird hehehe and yes of course I get to feeling light
headed on both counts LOL.  Oh well,  that’s my life
and so I try and laugh about it hehehe.  It’s been that
way since 1994 so why cry about it now huh hehehe.
I know many people that have much worse problems
than I have,  so I pray for them and try not to live in
pity,  but unfortunately I do get weak sometimes and
I let it get to me.  I’m only human ya know or at least
that’s what a few think hehehehe.  Many swear up
and down that I must be from outer space hehehehe 🙂
and some call me Santa :).  Who knows???  I’ll never
tell hehehehe.  Milo is snoring away down there in
the floor.  I went and opened up a window for Benny
in the spare room so it wouldn’t be so warm in there.
LOL,  I think he might have thought I was fixing to
lie down with him hehehe.  I gave him a big hug and
petted him and then said go back to sleep little boy.
He laid back down and closed his eyes.  There’s not
much going on around this place,  at least no more
than the usual :).  I drove to town yesterday and got
Judy and I some 1 dollar burgers from Burgerking.
Actually I was only wanting 4 one dollar burgers and
I wanted 2 bacon and cheese burgers,  but the guy
thought I meant one dollar bacon and cheese,  so
Judy got shorted.  I offered her one of mine.  We
never eat them all at once.  Buying like that gives
us 2 meals so we haven’t gotta cook LOL.  Lazy
YES LOL :p.  We only do that ever so often when
neither of us feels like cooking or we’re just not in
the mood or feeling like going shopping hehehe.
Most times though her or I will stir up something
good to eat.  I have a feeling that she might stop
and pick up a few groceries on the way home this
evening.  If not,  we still have food to eat,  so it’s no
problem.  I know it’s weird,  but I find myself getting
antsy for the first good winters snow.  I do love to
watch the snowflakes fall from the sky,  but then
I do get a bit sick of snow after about 2 or 3 months
of it LOL.  There’s always good with the bad and
bad with the good I always say.  It’s what makes us
appreciative for the good times.  If it weren’t for
the bad times,  we would just get bored and life
would have no true joy in it.  If you’re having a bad
day,  week,  month or year,  then look back and
find the joy that you may have overlooked while
focusing on the bad times.  I’m reasonably sure
that you will find some that you might have missed.
Let God help you through a little prayer.  Now,
I think it’s time for me to begin my little search
back through all that I have 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 always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may
have found a good title and it looks as though after
checking that I haven’t used it yet,  so here goes.
I hope it comes out making at least some sense :).

So We Haven’t

No we may not
have the world,
but our joy
is found unfurled.
So we haven’t
got much money,
we’ve got us
I love you honey.
Yes we might have
days of gray,
but there’s good times
that display.
So we haven’t
much to show,
we’ve got God
with love to grow.
Yes sometimes
we’re in much pain,
but together
we’re aflame.
So we haven’t
got much hon,
we’ve got love
and God’s Own Son.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

Ok,  so yes the poem is about Judy and I.  I just write
what’s on my mind and most times I don’t even think
about what I’m writing.  So that’s my excuse and I’m
sticking to it LOL.  It’s weird how I will start out with
thinking I’m gonna write about one thing and end up
writing about something totally different hehehehehe.
It sometimes changes mid poem.  Anyways,  I wonder
if I’ve forgotten to tell you anything.  Yep,  my daughter
Jamye’s birthday is tomorrow (Sept 29).  No Jamye,
I’m not gonna mention your age.  I know how all of
you women are about not telling your age hehehehe.
I love you Jamye and wish you and Sami could come
up for a visit.  Maybe one day,  I hope.  I miss you.
Well the clock on the wall is continuing to tick on as
night draws closer.  It’s 6:30 PM right now and 75 F
degrees.  Milo has gone to our bedroom and decided
to lie on our bed instead of one of the dog beds LOL.
Yep,  Benny is still on the futon in the spare room :).
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 with one of them
being sort of Christmassy and two are about Judy
and I.  I also once again wrote 22 more haiku for all
of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you’re able to
find one or two of either or both that you like.  Now,
I think it’s time for me to begin my search for that,
not so great at hiding,  off switch,  but not before I
wish you a most wonderful weekend or what’s left
of it and a truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Ok,  so where in
this room are ya hiding at this week ya ornery off
switch?  You’ve got so many places to hide,  but it
seems you always pull the lazy card and do as you
just did.  If you’re gonna hide,  stay hidden ya silly.
Don’t go peeking out at me LOL.  I wouldn’t of
seen ya behind my billfold if ya had of just stayed
still hehehe.  Try harder next week will ya hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Without A Word

Just but a motion
is what many need
without a word
for many to read.
Our own actions speak
louder than words
displaying truly
what many deserve.
Some peoples speaking
is just full of lies
that after saying
shows only despise.
Without a word
so many show true
what that their speaking
has left all askew.
So now be honest
and let actions say
without a word
what’s true day to day.
Then as you’re speaking
your words won’t be seen
as just a liars with
actions of scheme.

Beyond The Horizon

With clouds faraway
in the sky up above
the scenes I am seeing
seem so full of love.
Beyond the horizon
a picturesque view
displays the mornings
and evenings so true.
Painted as blessings
seen up in the skies
beyond the horizon
there’s greatest surprise.
The view always changing,
but often not seen
beyond the horizon
a various dream.
Often as pictures
a wonderful find
then sometimes paintings
inside of my mind.
A dreamers paradise
seen from faraway.
Beyond the horizon
there is another day.

Fields Of Thoughts

Seeds of ventures
blow and sway
fields of thoughts
from day to day.
Moments painted
by Gods Hand
become the fields
of rugged land.
Fields of thoughts
with words of time
become pictures
found design.
Pictures taken
later seen
then become our
favorite dream.
Then that journey
is not lost
pictures taken
fields of thoughts.

Winters Surprises

Snowflakes come as artwork
that paint so much with white
that they shine in the daytime
and also through the night.
Glistening little snowflakes
become so many things
such as tree limbs of artwork
and Christmastime dreams.
Snowflakes are designers
in their own little way
created with God’s blessings
in a wonderful display.
The scenes filled with glitter
of dear winters surprises
display so many things
with Lord God’s Own devices.
Christmas comes in streaming
with its magical hue
as winters surprises
God gives me and you.
Yet,  many will only see
the dismal of the days
through winters surprises
that to them is only gray.
Look passed the problems
and find what is best
through winters surprises
and snowflakes of quest.
Find your Christmas blessings
by not looking for the bad
with winters surprises
of Christmastimes glad.

I Felt A Little Autumn

While walking in the field one day
I felt a little autumn
with a little breeze that blew
through change that had begun.
The clouds above just floated by
with showers here and there
I felt a little autumn then
while looking everywhere.
The sights I saw that wondrous day
were magically perceived
as so many colors changed
that God Himself conceived.
I felt a little breeze of time
that gave some leaves a ride
through that autumn day begun
with colors found inside.
I felt a little autumn gaze
come strolling on my way
that gave my wife and I a chance
for pictures that great day.
We photographed the autumn colors
green,  red,  yellow,  brown
and then we went inside to look
to see what all we found.
Those photographs of that great day
still live as time goes on
as we will then once again
begin yet another dawn.

Purple And Red

With two perspectives
we each see
the colors changing
you and me.
Purple and red
conjoined in time
with us each day
both yours and mine.
Colored flavors
for our eyes
purple and red
will paint the skies.
Scenes transfixing
here and there
are those colors
everywhere.
Purple and red
we now perceive
as a tangled
web we weave.
Conjoined together
with you and I
purple and red
our moonlight sky.
Stars that twinkle
colors to see
some or purple
a reddish degree.
We find starlight
glistening true
a red for me
and purple for you.

Today Finds Tomorrow

As our lives move onwards now
with happiness and sorrow
our hope can grow goodness then
as today finds tomorrow.
Many a memory found in time
can surely become alive
as today finds tomorrows gaze
to in time then arrive.
Mornings after nighttime’s phase
of definitive awareness
might give many recalls of
your saddened found through stress.
Going to bed with harnessed anger,
not resolving peace of mind
our today finds tomorrow then
with a bitterness design.
Don’t let your night to end
without first making peace,
or you’ll find tomorrow then
with a bit of peace decrease.
Find that place within your heart
to lets loose stubborn pride
and then you might see brighter days
as tomorrow comes inside,
then as today finds tomorrow
your journey will be complete
you may have ceased the flame of time
that torments dreams with heat.

The Promise of Time

Without right now
we might just be
without tomorrows
history.
The promise of time
so many say
is counted as
what’s gone away.
The past is gone
with memories
the promise of time
as deep blue seas.
So many heartbeats
find so true
the promise of time
so very blue.
Them not allowing
truthfully so
the promise of time
with God to bestow.
Heaven is waiting
with minutes to see
the promise of time
for you and for me.
We have our choices
choosing ways
the promise of time
of our future days.
Will it be Heaven
or will it be Hell
the promise of time
is of our detail.
Choosing directions
of both yours and mine
gives our description
of the promise of time.

Winter’s Prelude

Soon when the seasons
bring forth the end
of autumns colors
that right now transcend,
winter will come in
with its own device
sometimes with snowflakes
and sometimes just ice.
Winter’s prelude
will knock on our door
soon after autumn
or maybe before.
Scenes become changes
with colors delight
of red,  yellow,  brown
to the color of white.
So we will see then
what seasons include
soon after autumn
with winter’s prelude

Love And Peace

Time finds moments
that won’t cease
found as lesser
love and peace.
Many doorways
that we find
open up with
changed design.
Love and peace
so many say
cannot be
right now today,
but it’s only
choices made,
so ones let
the love degrade.
Peace is also
found inside
with so many
love applied.
Not skin color
nor of race
love and peace can
then enlace.
So let judgment
of your eyes
not deceive you
with just lies.
Find God’s blessings
now today
peace and love
right now I pray.
Lose your hatred
killing sprees
and find God now
on your knees.

Haiku
for Sept 28 2014

Time marks a number
on the heartbeats that we have
deciding demise.

Looks of a storm cloud
might find someone well confused
looking up above.

Windows of turmoil
come at unfortunate times
with doorways swinging.

Behind prying eyes
lies the bit about a cat
and what that killed it.

Belief in a dream
gives hope for its beginnings
found within real life.

Mornings of thunder
bring a chance for some raindrops
or then maybe not.

When with only lies
you’ll find yourself all alone
even with many.

The headstones of graves
do not always tell the truth,
for they are just words.

As summer has passed
it has left autumn colors
to paint up the world.

The sight of a snowflake
tells stories about winter
within a white word.

As time goes its way
it leaves pieces of itself
found in history.

So many questions
leave many merely confused
without some answers.

With just a heartbeat
someone’s life begins shining,
but hate puts it out.

Mindless perception
begins a journey through life
filled with emptiness.

Our shadows displayed
act out our daily footsteps
that others can see.

Nobodies heartache
is ignored by God above,
for He loves us all.

If life finds sadness
look for the hidden rainbows
to brighten your day.

As now turns to then
and yesterday is no more
find your path forward.

When music’s playing
listen to the rhythms found
and find the pathway.

A cosmic journey
that’s made through your fantasies
could find many stars.

While in a meadow
the tree leaves in the distance
will display autumn.

Hindsight of many
leaves ignorance recorded
as what they’ve chosen.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been?  I’ve been sort of under the weather
a bit and incredibly sore due to our bed sort of needing to
be put to rest LOL. My side and chest hurt so bad it felt
like a machete cut me each time I tried to get a breath of
air.  It really freaking hurt when I sneezed or coughed LOL.
We rotated the mattress last night and that seemed to do
the trick.  At least for a bit hehehe.  One day when we’re
rich,  we’ll buy us a new mattress,  but I’m guessing that
it won’t be any time soon.  So it’s on with my rambling :).
Saturday Sept 20 was my grandmothers birthday.  She’s
107.  Yep,  still alive.  My mom said that Grandmother
was in a good mood yesterday and had a great time at her
birthday party.  I sure wish I could have been there too.
I wonder how many candles they put on her birthday cake.
I bet the fire department was waiting close by hehehe :).
I love my grandmother as a second mom.  Paw Paw and
her were always a big part of my life.  Anyways,  Happy
belated birthday Grandmother.  I love you bunches and
bunches :).  I wish you could see well enough and were
even interested in computers so you could see this,  but
you are from a different decade/century.  BIG HUGS to
you anyways :).  Ok, so what else is there to write about?
As I said in the beginning,  I have not been feeling well
lately and I didn’t write any poems or haiku yesterday.
I did though write them all today (Sunday).  I might even
get this finished and published later tonight.  God only
knows hehehe.  If I don’t get it done tonight,  I’ll most
surely finish it tomorrow (Monday).  It’s 8 PM right
now and the boys and I are waiting for Judy to come
home.  She might be home in an hour or so.  She said
she was going to stop at WalMart and pick up a few
necessities before she came home.  Me and the boys
took a little stroll out in the field today.  It was so windy
we almost blew away hehehe.  It seems to have calmed
down a bit now though.  It rained a little bit this evening
and it’s suppose to rain some more Monday.  I sure
wish I could send some of this rain to my mom in Texas.
Oh well,  I can pray.  Ok,  so onto another hopeful topic.
The seasons are quickly changing up here.  I’ve noticed
a few trees with leaves already turning colors,  but I’m
sure the full color change won’t happen for another few
weeks at least.  You never really know until they start
changing.  Most times we will see the beginning of the
change right outside our front door.  Judy’s gotta buy
some new batteries for her camera before we head
out on a fall color photo drive.  It seems that all three
of her batteries have gotten old and won’t hold much
of a charge.  I sure wish her camera used regular
batteries LOL.  No matter,  we’ll get some more soon.
So,  what else is happening up here?  I can’t think of
anything hehehe.  We’re pretty much doing our same
old routine.  Always trying to find something that we
can watch on TV.  I just checked and I found a couple
of good TV programs we can watch.  So,  hopefully
Judy will be home in time to watch them :).  I’m sure
she will be.  Even still,  if she’s not,  I’ll just record
them.  Ice Road Truckers comes on at 10 o clock.
That’ll take care of an hour :).  Of course we always
seem to end up watching cartoons if we can’t find
anything else to watch.  We love Tom and Jerry :).
Milo is in the floor beside me sleeping soundly.
I’ve started calling him Lumberjack being he does
saw some logs LOL.  Benny’s in the living room as
always guarding the house from his perch upon his
favorite recliner hehehe.  If he hears something
he’ll start barking and if I don’t come,  he’ll come
and get me hehehe. He’s such a cutie LOL.  We
love them both as our little boys.  Thank You God
for filling our home with love.  I know we have a
few bad days,  but we always know that you are
here with us to make it better.  Of course there
will be sadness,  for with humanity and free will
comes happiness and sadness.  They are sides to
the same coin.  Sadness makes us more grateful
for the happiness.  Without sadness and hard times
we would just take each day as boring without joy.
When you are sick,  do you not feel grateful to
be well when it passes.  Yes many ailments never
pass,  but they can make us stronger as we deal
with each day and we find ourselves in prayer.
Don’t let the sadness of a moment to destroy
what happiness that can be found as time moves
on.  Learn to truly forgive and put things where
they need to be,  in the past.  You may never
forget,  but use then as lessons to make a better
future.  Our choices in life create the pages of
our book of time.  There might be a few that you
want to bookmark,  but others you might want
to consider as lessons learned and not harbor on
the thoughts.  With that said,  I reckon I need
to be taking my little venture back through all
that I’ve written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the title for
today’s 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 good title and after checking I see that it has
not been used yet BY ME hehehe.  I hope I
can write something that makes sense using it.
Here goes.

Quickly Changing

Sudden moments
not so briefly
change the times
of which we see.
Doorways squeaking
in our view
quickly changing
thereunto.
Worded vessels
carry on
quickly changing
dusk to dawn.
Morning comes with
sights to see
that God gave
to you and me.
Yet some moments
quickly changing
might not be but
rearranging.
We might just be
in a hurry
quickly changing
in a flurry.
Don’t let hurry
be your style
take the time
to wait a while.
Quickly changing
might need slow
sometimes when you’re
feeling low.
Allow a moment
changed in time
to be found
with God Divine.

Ok,  did that make any sense to you?  I’m never sure.
There are a few moments that even elude my mind.
Don’t try to figure it out LOL.  I just write so fast at
times that I don’t even think about what I’m writing.
I Just start typing.  Of course the hardest part’s coming
up with a new title.  When I have a title,  the thoughts
just start coming to me.  Well it looks like Judy is home.
I hear Benny raising a fit in the living room hehehe,
so I’ve gotta go help Judy bring in the groceries.  Ok,
so all of the groceries are put away.  I guess it’s time
for me to tell you what I tell you every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
10 more poems with one of them being Christmassy.
I also wrote 2 poems about Benny and Milo LOL
and yes I wrote 22 more haiku for my haiku lovers
out there.  I guess I will be finishing this tomorrow.
Ice Road Truckers is on 🙂  It’s over now and we
watched a few home improvement programs.  Now
I think I need to go and lie down and try to get some
rest.  I took two aspirin and two Benadryl or the
cheaper generic form of it LOL.  I’ll finish this in
the morning sometime.  Peace and out!  I’m back :).
I had to wait until the Benadryl wore off.  It always
messes with my eyes and being that I only have one
good eye,  it really put a damper on doing anything
for a bit hehehe.  It’s 12:30 in the afternoon and I’m
going to try and get ‘er done,  but not before I fix
us something to eat.  I’ll be back hehehehe.  I fixed
us EGGO’S  and sausage links.  Yummy yum yum :).
Now to finish this mess.  Let’s see,  I told you about
the poems and haiku,  so now I need to begin my
search for that poorly elusive 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 is that dad burned off switch hibernating
this week LOL.  It had an extra day to find a good
hiding spot and I wonder if it used it?   Nope,  I can
see you ya silly thing.  You did though do a little bit
better than last week,  didn’t ya :),  but hiding behind
my nose spray wasn’t gonna work,  at least not today.
My allergies are really giving me heck hehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce
and also Benny and Milo Pearce 🙂

P.S.  I had to save the email and reboot my PC due
to my mouse pointer going AWOL hehehe.

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

The End Of Summer

A summer’s day
with gusty winds
I am found with
my two friends.
Four pawed fellows
white and brown
these true friends
remove my frown.
We go walking
running too
in the field
within our view.
The end of summer
brings in phase
autumns colors
future days.
A summer’s day
we will remember
after fall
and through December.
Pictures taken
one by one
the end of summer

A Dog Day Of Autumn

With all the doorways
that open and close
a dog day of autumn
makes colors compose.
Displayed as paintings
with colorful trees
found as a flavor
that our eyesight sees.
A dog day of autumn
with four paws delight
Benny and Milo
are anxious for sight.
My wife and I also
are awaiting the view
a dog day of autumn
with colors so true.
Those little footsteps
of four pawed design
soon will be running
in fields so divine.
Seeing all the artwork
that God’s given them
a dog day of summer
is out on a limb.
Leaves many colors
red,  yellow and brown
joined with some green
that’s found all around.
A dog day of summer
will then pass on by
as all the tree leaves
fall from so high.
Falling from the branches
of a seasonal sun
us and the boys see
a new day begun.
Then with the ticking
of Father Time’s clock
we’ll feel the presence of
wintertime’s knock.
Hiding all the colors
that fall leaves have changed
a dog day of autumn
is winter arranged.

Not Learning Why

So many heartaches
will often be found
when we are walking
just looking around.
Sometimes those heartaches
can be better seen
when we seek truly
what that they mean.
Often they are lessons
with miseries disguise
displayed in timeframes
with so many whys.
Us asking questions
about everything
acting maybe blindly
as a puppet on a string.
Time shows us answers
that many will deny
while the truth is there
but they’re not learning why.
Left in a darkroom
with no answers found
as some people live
not turning around.
Not seeing shadows
of their own mistakes
and not learning why
through all that it takes.

Without A Thought To Find

Beyond our ventures
thoughts are made
where and when
with who displayed.
Without a thought
to find the light
so many troubles
come in sight.
Beyond our eyesight
seems devoid
without a thought
of time deployed.
Without thinking
many find
things less thought of
in our mind.
Hidden deeply
maybe lost
in a moment
without a thought.
Books of thinking
lost in words
might end up as
flocks of birds.
So conclusions
someone’s time
is without
a thought to find.

Lost In Time

Believing is seeing
or so that they say,
for so many blessings
will come day to day.
Without a sight of
The True Hand of God
so many blessings will
find no applaud.
So many people
will lose sight of love
not seeing truly
God’s love from above.
The lives of so many
will just look away
while lost in time
with only the gray.
Losing ones footing
on pathways we climb
so often find ones
scenes lost in time.
Footsteps that stumble
while going too fast
might lose the shadows
that God’s love has cast.
So let not hurry
to cause you to fail
leaving you worry
so grown in detail.
Find now the footsteps
of your best design
and don’t let yourself
to be lost in time.

It’s Coming Soon

Soon autumn’s leaves
will fall to the ground
while waiting patiently
for what that’s found.
White snow to follow
the autumn fall colors
as snowflakes fall then
with one then the other.
For it’s coming soon
that most precious day
when there is white snow
to cover the gray.
Then as the snowflakes
fall down to the Earth
there will be Christmas
highlighting A Birth.
Jesus Christ truly
with each day we find,
it’s coming soon now
that great frame of mind.
That day so special
with each Christmas tune
is found on my mind now
for it’s coming soon.

Sometimes A Journey

A stone trodden pathway
with rocky road smiles
sometimes a journey
is much more than miles.
Pebbles laid loosely
to point out the way
sometimes a journey
is there on display.
Driven by turnstiles
of moments and dreams
sometimes a journey
is of rushing streams.
Then all those footsteps
might just wash away
sometimes a journey
then without display.
Many a pathway
is just but a mile
sometimes a journey
to bring you a smile.

Breath Of Life

One breath another
with more then to breathe
a breath of life is
then to conceive.
Two times connected
with more times to grow
a breath of life is
more than just show.
Truth of ones breathing
is heartbeats in time
a breath of life that
comes from Divine.
Echoes of people
with timeless detail
a breath of life then
sets lives a sail.
For with a true breath
of loving so sweet
a breath of life can
make ones complete.

Snowy Afternoons

Soon in December
I’ll only see white
with every day then
and then every night.
Mornings will blossom
with wintertime tunes
of white flakes just blowing
some snowy afternoons.
Decembers glimmers
of icicles strung
found on some doorways
so magically hung.
Then on the tree limbs
the snow will display
snowy afternoons
in the midst of each day.
Icicles hanging
as winter comes soon
now is imagined
of a snowy afternoon.

Friends With The Moon

Daylight meets nighttime
with stars in the sky
but so many look up
and still wonder why.
The moon is hung thusly
in its home in space
showing itself sometimes
a much different face.
Often it’s hidden
only a partial degree
as it continues
its bond with the sea.
Making the sea swell
with tides coming in
and then to leave
with time and agin
Friends with the moon
is an ocean of time
displayed so often
as scenes so divine.
Friends with the moon
are heartbeats so great
for it’s there always
with love to create.
As two stand together
with their hearts in tune
the bond is then magnified
friends with the moon

Haiku
for Sept 21,  2014

Ashes to ashes
begins many blind viewpoints
when judging others.

Looking out windows
can only give a good view
if they are clean.

When blinded by time
the past can become distant
and maybe saddened.

Look for the good times
that your yesterdays brought you
and lose the sadness.

A sunny morning
becomes a glistening sight
as it turns brighter.

The fresh wind of time
blows in with much emotion
leaving trails behind.

Lessened are the days
that we allow to slip by
when joy was within.

Losing your journey
inside of empty pathways
needs new direction.

A single moment
can determine your future
so be real careful.

When finding yourself
make sure it’s really you
and not someone else.

Looking back through time
you might see some bitterness
that still holds you back.

A mountain so high
becomes someone’s photograph
that’s seen from afar.

As the day draws nigh
there is nighttime to exist
with the moon and stars.

Without true effort
you cannot grow with lessons,
so get off your butt.

A warm summer sun
brings many a day of fun
and some wants for rain.

When looking upwards
we might run into something
right in front of us.

Looking for stardom
might lose all your privacy
so heed the warning.

Moments of peaceful
come when you let go of things
that you can’t control.

As seconds tick on
our minutes become hours
that make our lifetime.

When now meets a need
that was hidden in the dust
many then see God.

Changing perception
can create better viewpoints
while seeing both sides.

Some dreams do come true
and some turn into nightmares.
Careful what you wish.

Because The Clouds

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Last week wasn’t too bad.  It’s getting colder with every
tick of the clock though LOL.  Today’s high is supposed
to be 57 F degrees which right now it is 55 F degrees at
4 PM.  Tonight’s low is supposed to be 36 F degrees and
that tells me that wintertime isn’t too far away.  It’s a bit
cloudy right now,  but it’s supposed to clear up in a few
hours.  LOL I don’t see it happening though,  but it might.
I have the boys with me again as we congregate in here
which is the warmest room of the house due to our PC’s.
Our computers and monitors put out a lot of heat hehehe.
Milo has stationed himself once again right beneath me
in a trusting manner believing that I won’t roll over him
with my chair hehehe.  I have to keep looking down to
see where his body parts are before I move hehehe :).
Benny has left the room to head to his lookout station
which is sat upon his favorite recliner LOL.  If he starts
barking at every little noise again I might have to bring
him back in here :).  He’s over anxious for his mom to
come home and Judy might not be home until late tonight.
Yep,  she’s at her sisters house taking care of her mom
until Trudy gets home from work.  Milo just got up and
headed to the bedroom and laid down in one of the dog
beds in there.  I guess he got tired of me nudging him
to make him move hehehe.  At least now I don’t have to
worry about rolling over his tail or feet 🙂  With my heavy
butt it would be a like a steam roller squashing him LOL.
Benny was just raising a ruckus in the living room.  He
thought he heard mom LOL.  It was just the neighbors.
I let him look to see and he shut up hehehe.  It’ still
cloudy as all get out :).  I don’t think the clouds are
gonna go away hehehe.  No matter,  I don’t mind a few
clouds.  They’re decor for the sky.  Judy and I stopped
at Tim Hortons and got us some sandwiches the other
day.  UGH the bread was old and both of us had a hard
time eating them.  We ended up giving some to the dogs.
We won’t be stopping there again for sandwiches and
that’s for sure hehehe.  We might give their ice cream
and donuts a chance one day in the future though,  but
for now we’ll stick to Klondike bars and Dunkin Donuts
being that the Houlton Farms Ice Cream shop will be
closing in the next week or so for wintertime.  We can
still drop by there and get us a treat if we so desire
until then LOL.  We both got a parfait the last time we
went and they were so yummy :).  We only stop there
maybe two or three times a year.  It’s one thing we do
for a special treat.  I’m going to go and search the web
to find out when the fall colors for up here should be
starting so Judy and I will know when to go for our
little Fall drive for some pictures.  I’ll probably do the
search this evening after I get done with all of this
mess hehehe.  I have to keep standing up and walking
around due to my back and legs aching,  so it might
take me a while to get this written hehehe.  It’s still
cloudy outside and it’s almost 6:30 PM hehehe.  Those
clouds are gonna have to do some trucking if they’re
gonna be gone by tonight,  but as I said,  “I don’t think
it’s gonna happen hehehe”.  I just went and took a few
pictures of the sky because the clouds have got a sort
of pinkish hue to them.  Milo followed me to the front
door and then back in here and is once again lying in
the floor behind me LOL.  Benny wanted to go outside
so I let him out.  I’ll check on him in a little while,  but
I think he wants to sit on the steps and wait for mom :).
Milo is still not hearing too well,  but I’ve got a loud
voice/mouth hehehe and he can hear me.  It’s part of
growing old I guess. I myself can’t hear thunder out
of right ear and my left ear is getting weak.  Judy and
me will have to start sign language or do as we do now
and that is point and do a lot of hand gestures hehehe
of course that’s after the fact that we still can’t quite
understand what the other is saying.  Yes,  she’s a tad
deaf too and that’s where the fun begins hehehehehe.
So Milo probably hears us,  but maybe more like what
the Peanuts Gang hears from the grownups which is
Wah wah wah,  wah wahwah wah wah wah hehehehe.
I guess that’s the levity in it all.  Sometimes it just
doesn’t pay to cry LOL.  Hehehe who’ll hear you :)?
I thank God for giving me this sense of humor,  but
I think Judy could do without it LOL.  Naw,  she likes
it,  but I’m sure it does get on her nerves from time
to time.  No matter,  God gives us all a way to deal
with our problems,  but many times people will just
decide to lie there and cry rather than to simply do
something about it,  or to maybe find a smile on the
brighter side of life through the clouds of gray.  Often
it’s only our viewpoint that perceives the sadness and
not the actual moment.  Let God help you to find the
rainbows in the storms and see the beauty through it
all.  Many think that death is the end,  but it’s only the
beginning of a never-ending story that is in Heaven.
Our loved ones aren’t gone.  They are watching over
us always as spirits from Heaven no longer confined
by flesh and blood and ailments they may have had.
I talk to my dad and many others always even though
I can’t see them.  I know they are watching over me as
well as many angels.  Find peace through God and His
Son Jesus Christ and you will never be alone.  You’ll
always have help coming from Heaven.  Now I believe
it’s time for me to be taking my little venture back
through all that I’ve written here to see if I can find
a good word or phrase that I can use for the title for
today’s brand new poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that lil
place of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found me a halfway
decent title around the mid part of my rambling and
it looks as though I haven’t used it yet,  so here goes
nothing hehehe and maybe so LOL.

Because The Clouds

The days of gray
with clouds of rain
are overhead
but don’t complain.
For those days
of cloudy skies
might just have
a great surprise.
A picture or two
that they portray
in those scenes
of clouds of gray,
because the clouds
might form a view
that gives way
for a sky of blue.
Then so white
they might be found
from you there
upon the ground.
God’s The One
that paints this sight
beyond the gray
with clouds of white.
They are there
like fluffy shrouds
the sights attained,
because the clouds.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope that you liked the poem and
maybe even my rambling hehehe.  I just went to see if
Benny was ready to come in and he ran right in.  If there
had been some snow out there,  he would of wanted to
stay outside and play in it hehehe.  I’m sure that he will
be all ecstatic when the snowflakes commence.  He’s our
little snow dog.  Milo was getting to where he didn’t mind
it too much last year,  so who knows,  he might find that
he likes to play in it as well,  OK maybe not as well,  but
maybe a little hehehe.  He’s an old man and Benny’s still
a pup or so he thinks hehehe.  They are both in here and
they are in a playful mode wanting my undivided attention.
LOL they can be so silly sometimes :).  They’re both just
staring at me from either side of me.  Yes,  that makes it
a tad hard to concentrate LOL.  Benny is now licking my
leg trying to get my attention hehehe.  Sheesh,  these
boys are a mess.  I’m sure that they want me to feed
them,  but they have dried food in their pans if they’re
hungry.  They don’t care much for dried food,  but when
push comes to shove,  they’ll eat it hehehe.  I’ll feed
them their favorite food (Ole Roy Meatloaf) in a bit.
I like for them to eat the dried food,  because it’s good
for them and when I hold out on feeding them,  they’ll
eat a little of the dried LOL.  Ya gotta out think them :).
Of course,  they do have us trained well hehehehehehe.
So who out thunk who?  We can’t help it,  we love our
boys.  So I reckon I need to be putting the brakes on
before I get into full rambling mode again hehehehehe.
With that said,  I need to tell you what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers,  10 more poems with 1 of them being sort of
Christmassy.  I also wrote a poem about Judy and I
and one about Benny and Milo 🙂 and for all of my
haiku lovers out there I wrote 22 more haiku.  I hope
you find one or two of either or both that you like :).
Now with that said :),  I reckon I need to be searching
for that not so elusive off switch,  but not before I wish
you a most wonderful weekend or what ever is left
of it and a truly blessings filled week.  Now,  where
are ya hiding at ya ornery little off switch varmint?
Oh,  OK,  so I guess I’m not supposed to see you as
you stare at me from across the room in the TV screen.
Well surprise,  I saw ya,  being that it’s not even on.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S.  Judy came up with many of the titles for me
to use.  It gets hard coming up with new titles that
I haven’t already used when the number of poems
I’ve written exceeds 8000 hehehe.  I don’t like to
have poems with the same titles,  but I have in the
past accidentally repeated a few titles LOL oops.

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

Looks Of A Sky

Sometimes as bluish
and sometimes as grey,
the skies up above us
will change day by day.
Often some clouds will
bring some designs
found in the sky above
from time to time.
Then found at evening
is moonlight and stars
the looks of the sky
with Venus and Mars.
Many times even
the sky will expose
scenes so transfixing
as a pink colored rose.
Sometimes the changes
will sweetly reply
with I am Lord God’s work
as looks in the sky.

Circles And Squares

We’ve all got differences
circles and squares
which many think of
as this way not theirs.
Outwards appearances
only show true
what that the flesh is
showing on you.
Yet beyond outside
they might then expose
a heart full of passion
not seen in the clothes.
Sometimes ones insides
might hold many things
such as the answers
of so many dreams.
So don’t let eyesight
be what that compares
what that’s on inside
as circle and squares.

The Wheel Of Life

As we roll onwards
as husband and wife
we are each sharing
the wheel of life.
Finding our footing
through turmoil’s deplore
the wheel of life shows us
some peace to explore.
Often a doorway
will expose some rain,
but God sends us rainbows
to help with the pain.
We each make mistakes
as a husband and wife,
but there is still true love
on the wheel of life.
Forgiving each other
as each day moves on
God gives us prayerful
in each mornings dawn.
Then the wheel of life
rolls on in its way
as true love continues
to surely display
Finding some potholes
in footsteps of time
we can move onwards
with lessons to find.
Love brings us chances
through God’s Holy Light
for us found together
on the wheel of life.

A Place In The Sun

As seasons are changing
the new is begun
find some more days
place in the sun.
Some days as cloudy
with rain falling down
and other days seen as
some snow on the ground.
With every morning
the seasons display
a place in the sun
with each times array.
Some found with dew drops
and others with ice
displayed as seasons
of life’s apple slice.
Cut up so nicely
as times song and dance
a place in the sun
gives each one a chance.

A Dogs Story

Little paws running
seeking to play
there’s a dogs story
in their little way.
Two as dear brothers
yet not then at all
sometimes with toys
in a friendly dog brawl.
They’re often sleeping
so close side by side
then when awakened
are found in a stride.
Then as these doggies
are wanting to eat
they are just noisy
and wanting a treat.
Dancing and barking
while trying to say
we want some treats
right now and today.
Then we will later
head out to the field
to let them run wildly
with minutes instilled.
Two little brothers
seven years apart
each day together
are God’s work of art.
Prejudice thinking
doesn’t live inside
these two little dogs
of a dog story ride.
They are true brothers
of different families
together Lhasa Apso
and Poodle Pekinese.

Looking For Christmas

While the days move on
I find I’m in thought
that of sweet Christmas
which isn’t store bought.
Looking for Christmas
in my snowy dreams
falling from the sky
in fluffy white streams.
All of my memories
surely come alive
looking for Christmas
in wanting revive.
Sometimes I’m finding
my own searching ways
looking for Christmas
in nows summer days.
Pictures of Christmas
live deep down inside
painting some new days
on a sleigh ride.
Looking for Christmas
is something to do
when I am sitting in
moments so blue.
Christmastime seems to
bring me a smile
that seems to help me
all of the while.

Many Debate

One persons thinking
might not be as yours
found as a river
that differently pours.
Many debating
what others should be
shows some discretion
from what others see.
Some stories written
are just of ones view
not found including
what’s of me and you.
So many people
will just live a lie
while they’re debating
what is wrong or right.
Often ones judgment
is found on blind hate
as they were brought up
and many debate.

A Friends Love

Without any friendship
our lives would be bland
not having anyone
to hold our hand.
That’s why the friendship
needs God above
to bond relationships
just like a glove.
For a friends love
will be there for you
even when bad days
come into view.
Having a true friend
is greater by far
as he or she then
shines like a star.
Holding your hand when
you are in need
a friends love is best
most surely indeed.

Scratching The Surface

Below what we’re seeing
might not be the same,
for scratching the surface
might not explain.
Maybe the insights
that lie below view,
might just be made up
by someone like you.
Scratching the surface
might slowly bestow
some bits and pieces
of what that’s below.
For if you scratch on
deep throughout time
you might find truly
what’s on someone’s mind.
So don’t go judging
what you think disgrace,
for you might not of
seen their true face.

I Can’t Perceive

With many blessings
I can’t perceive
how that so many
just don’t believe.
With every heartbeat
a miracle grows
yet oh so many
will sort of suppose.
I can’t perceive
how many get by
while living always
with only a lie.
Many will say that
they don’t believe
simple while saying that
I can’t perceive.
Heaven awaits us
even though true
we might this moment
not see the view.
Our own perception
is that found at heart
so I can’t perceive
how ones can’t impart.
Life is a journey
throughout history
and I can’t see how
so many can’t see.
For I can’t perceive
is what many say
when they see us kneel down
to Lord God and pray.

Haiku
for Sept 13,  2014

Life is a mystery
with its day to day turnstiles
that open and close.

Looking for moonlight
might display quite a few stars
amidst your searching.

Now is a story
that is written throughout time
with good and bad days.

Sometimes the verdict
describes lesser as better
when lesser shows more.

Living on the edge
could end in much devastation
you weren’t prepared for.

As storm clouds gather
they might give false impressions
of raindrops to fall.

Beyond yesterday
our journey to tomorrow
begins with today.

Fragments of our dreams
might come alive in our minds
and then in our view.

Peaceful emotions
bring sunshine from cloudy skies
through a little prayer.

Angels from Heaven
might be loved ones that passed on
and watch over us.

As minutes tick on
we might miss so many things
within the seconds.

The sinking of ships
might be caused by opened mouths
that will not shut up.

While we move forwards
we might leave some things behind
that might be needed.

Nighttime comes quickly
as wintertime gets closer
and summertime fades.

Autumn brings colors
of red,  orange and brown
as the seasons change.

Windows we look through
might not show the true beauty
if they are dirty.

Our after affects
could reflect on some others
in good ways or bad.

A bird in the sky
flies with internal mapping
of where it’s to go.

A search of true love
could find you much destruction
if you look blindly.

Mornings come alive
with the nights recollections
of lessons we learned.

A liars choices
often backfire on them
as the truth is seen.

Flowers fade away
as wintertime comes knocking
with snowflakes to fly.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s a nice day today.  Right now at 2:40 PM it’s 69 F degrees
and according to my weather program,  it’s supposed to stay in
the 60’s for at least 9 more days.  Tonight’s low is supposed to
be 38 F degrees.  We took Milo back to the vet Saturday and
she didn’t even look in his ears,  but just said he’s getting old.
Oh well,  Milo can still hear a little bit if I raise my voice.  I’ll
still continue putting ear cleaner in his ears.  It can’t hurt.  Heck,
it might even help.  It reduces risk of infection,  loosens wax
and debris,  soothes with aloe vera and may reduce ear odor.
The ear cleaner antiseptic is for dogs and cats,  so it’s all good.
Benny and Milo are lying on our bed watching cartoons.  Right
now they’re watching Garfield LOL.  They look so sweet just
lying there side by side.  Milo has gone to sleep,  but Benny
is still watching TV.  Judy is doing her regular weekly thing.
She’s over at her sister’s house taking care of her mother
while Trudy goes to work.  Yep,  it’s pretty much the normal
for here nowadays hehehe.  Benny stood with me at the door
as we watched Judy back out of the driveway and wave at
us :).  We’ve been trying to make a point of taking them and
us for a walk out in the field at least 4 days a week.  Benny
loves it.  Milo on some days will often start chasing Benny
and he looks so cute with his ears flopping up and down.
Milo just woke up and came to tell me that he needs to go
potty,  so I’ll be back.  Ok,  he’s done.  Benny went outside
with him,  but he preferred to stay outside for a bit and sit
on the porch.  Milo is pretty much always ready to come
back in.  He’s not much on staying outside.  While we were
at the vet Saturday we had her clip their toe nails and give
Benny his distemper shot.  Milo’s up to date on all his shots
until February.  We finally finished trimming their hair up.
By wintertime it’ll be all grown out again being that they
don’t shed.  OK,  so Benny sheds a little,  but Milo doesn’t
shed at all being he’s a Lhasa Apso.  Judy’s started getting
her teeth worked on.  The dental bill is high,  but it’s worth
it to make her feel better about herself.  I’ve gotta take
care of her and the boys.  I love them bunches.  Maybe one
day I’ll be able to get my dentures repaired,  but that will
be maybe a long time down the road being that we’re not
made of money LOL.  It would be nice if we could afford
dental insurance,  but that’s life.  We did fill out a form and
they accepted us to pay 20 percent of our bill leaving us
with 80 percent,  though it would be a bit better if it had of
been visa versa LOL.   Oh well,  a little is better than not
at all.  Last Monday we went over to Judy’s nieces house
for a cookout.  A lot of the family was there.  It was a nice
day.  The rain held back until we were done and headed
home hehehe.  There were a few there that took the ice
bucket challenge.  One girl got the ice bucket challenge
when she wasn’t looking hehehe.  Marissa got drenched.
We would of caught it on camera if Judy or I had been
facing that direction or better yet,  known ahead of time
about it hehehe,  but then that might of given Marissa
a clue and she would of maybe run for the hills LOL :).
Milo has figured out how to roll down the back window
in the car so he can look out hehehe.  He does it every
once in a while when he wants to look outside.  Sort of
like when we got home from the vet Saturday,  Judy
stopped at the road in front of our house so I could go
and check the mail and when I came back to the car I
saw Milo with his little nose propped on the window just
watching me while Judy was laughing at him :).  She said
when I got out of the car,  he wanted to watch me and
so he hopped up to the window and hit the button rolling
down the window so he could see better.  Our car has
tinted windows LOL.  I just went to check on Benny and
he was ready to come back inside.  Milo saw him walk
in and jumped off of our bed and came running.  They
both followed me back in here wanting treats.  I gave
the little quackers some duck jerky hehehe.  Well it
looks like that satisfied them for a little while.  Milo’s
now lying in the floor beside me and Benny headed off
to his lookout headquarters on the recliner in the living
room hehehe.  There’s not much else going on around
here.  It’s looking like summertime is on its last leg,
at least it does up here.  Soon the snows will begin and
many will start bickering about it just as they do about
the heat.  It seems mankind is never truly happy LOL.
There’s always something that will seem to rock the
boat.  It’s when we finally accept things how they are
and look for the rainbows,  that the other won’t look so
bad.  BUT,  we are all guilty of every once in a while
or for many,  most of the time,  looking and seeing but
only the bad times and complaining.  Today why not
try looking passed the bad times and focus of the good
times.  Of course we each have to acknowledge the
bad so we can attempt to correct it,  if it’s possible,  but
we need to learn to accept what we cannot change and
try to be happy.  Let God help you with dealing with
all of the hard times and let Him walk with you in the
good times.  Find strength through Jesus to help you
to make a better tomorrow and find the joy in today.
Sheesh hehehe,  Milo is snoring BIG TIME.  He’s
sleeping good now.  He was having trouble getting
comfortable on the doggy mat bed so I went and got
one of their favorite doggy blankets and laid it on it
and that did the trick :).  We love them little boys :).
Thank You God for allowing us to be joined together
as a family.   I’ve had many dogs in the past and they
have been the best of friends and comfort.  Their
loss of life is always saddening,  but I firmly believe
that they go to Heaven just as we do and are waiting
for us with their tails wagging profusely.  The love
never dies.  So,  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 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 decent title that I haven’t already used,
so here I go.  I hope it makes sense LOL.

Learn To Accept

When time is filled with
havoc and pain
learn to accept some
less to complain.
Sometimes our problems
are not all that bad
if we look backwards
at all that we’ve had.
Often our problems
are not changeable
or at least not by us
but others are able.
Learn some acceptance
of now and agin
with lessons you’ve learned
from where you have been.
Sometimes our problems
bring struggles inept,
so often it’s better
to learn to accept.

Ok,  so there ya go.  This might make more sense to a few
going to AA or NA.  Yes I used to go many years ago.  Yep
my sobriety date is June 11,  1990.  It helped me to find my
footing without alcohol and just a few months later I was able
to quit smoking.  Though after about 4 or 5 years I ceased
going to AA,  I still have the lessons I learned.  I found my
higher power in Jesus through His Father.  I saw where He
had not forsaken me,  but He was waiting for me to do all
that I needed to do to get me where I needed to be.  Thank
You God for not giving up on me :).  Yeppers,  I had a lot
of Hell to go through to get me to where I was willing to
let go and let God.  So before I begin rambling again LOL
I guess I need to tell you what I tell you every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
10 more poems with 3 of them being sort of Christmassy.
One of them is about my Paw Paw and I.  We used to
spend many a night just fishing and floating in his boat
on Lake Tawakanii in Texas. Those were some great
times in my life that I’ll never forget.  Grandmother and
Paw Paw were like second parents to me.  Grandmother
is still alive.  She’ll be 107 years old September 20th :).
She made the best fried apple pies YUMMY YUMMY.
Anyways,  it seems I have strayed away from what I
was supposed to say hehehe.  So,  I’ve told you about
my poems,  so I guess I’ll tell ya now that I once again
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.
I hope you find one or two of either or both that you
like.  I hope my rambling didn’t put ya to sleep hehehe.
So,  now it’s time for me to be searching for that not
so elusive off switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful weekend and a truly blessings filled week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now to
find that not so great at hiding off switch hehehehehe.
Aw for Heaven’s sake,  couldn’t ya at least of tried
to hide LOL.  Standing right there in front of me with
a grimace on your face doesn’t constitute hiding LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce
and also Benny and Milo 🙂

P.S.  I also had a great birthday last Sunday.
Judy and I went to the Travelers Truckstop
when she got home and we pigged out 🙂
I had Haddock and Shrimp,  YUMMY

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

When Then Arrives

Often so many
will say now and then
to wait until sometime
seems better for them.
Then they discover
that then is in place
the right time so clearly
was found face to face.
Yet when then arrives
the waiting game finds
so many indecisive
seen throughout their lives.
For when then arrives
it might be the time
to let God to guide you
with His love Divine.
Allowing His blessings
to live and breathe true
when then arrives then
found within you.

Links Of Chains

Our connections
you and me
are found throughout
times history.
Links of chains
might need some oil
as minds together
of distant soil.
Rusty thinking
thereunto
links of chains
might go askew.
Leaving tread marks
in the sand
while connecting
where they stand.
Links of chains
of many souls
often shatter
others goals.
Don’t let links
to rust and break
and find you stood
in life’s Earthquake.

When Winter Begins

Minutes tick on
to autumns end
then there’s winter
around the bend.
A few snowflakes,
then some more
when winter begins
to let them soar.
The season brings
some cold and white
when winter begins
each day and night.
Many people
hate the season
with pure coldness
as the reason.
But so many
fail to see
Christmas comes for
you and me.
Fluffy snowflakes
then are found
landing softly
on the ground.
Painting blessings
in the snow
when winter begins
found to and fro.

A Saddened Smile

A persons face
not true to see
a saddened smile
might surely be.
Found as empty
sort of style
many have a
saddened smile.
Yet some people
have no choice
a saddened smile
is their true voice.
But so many
simply show
a saddened smile
as all the know.
It’s what’s behind
that saddened smile
that describes
what times compile.
If you have some
hidden pain
find a smile
of joy to gain.
See the blessings
all the while
to help to lose
your saddened smile.
We all have sadness
surely true,
but there’s goodness
yet to view.
A saddened smile
of days gone by
can be happy
if you try.
Let God help you
find a smile
of a much more
joyful style.

A Night On The lake

The younger of years
with Paw Paw and I
a night on the lake
brought moonlight to shine.
Our own reflections
as ripples delight
a night on the lake
was found in moonlight.
Him and I fishing
as waves lapped our boat
we continued fishing
while safely afloat.
The night air was sweet
as breezes blew in
a night on the lake
with my very best friend.
Him and I together
would look up and gaze
a night on the lake
on those sweet summer days.
My Paw Paw and I
went many a time
to fish on the lake
which seemed so sublime.
We had not a worry
with morning to make
as him and I fished on
a night on the lake

I Love you Paw Paw and I miss you.
We’ll fish again in Heaven.

A Time For Healing

When things are bad
and there’s no smile
a time for healing
needs compile.
Let your heartaches
find some peace
as your bad times
find release.
A time for healing
comes in place
with God’s blessings
through His Grace.
Don’t let sadness
become you
a time for healing
needs your view.
Find through Jesus
hope to gain
a time for healing
to attain.
Then let Him to
fill your heart
with His blessings
to impart.
Let His love to
help you view
a time for healing
thereunto.

Wings

The flight of birds
up overhead
spread their winds
so fast they sped.
Flying on
their wings design
headed to
their place in time.
Wings of feathers
wind beneath
fly so fast
they’re there so brief.
Headed onwards
to their home
or temporary
place to roam.
Then those wings
will fly them back
with a chirp
or maybe quack.
South and north
they fly each year
as seasons change
how they appear.
Wings return
when winters gone
found to see
a spring days dawn.

In Winters Wake

The weather changes
hot to cold
in winters wake
as it grabs hold.
Oh so chilly
each day seems
found within
our Christmas dreams.
Yet a fire
warms the bones
in winters wake
as fall’s dethroned.
Scattered snowflakes
fall and land
in winters wake
where many stand.
Christmas moments
come alive
where a snowman
does arrive.
Lights so pretty
fill the view
in winters wake
red,  green and blue.
Many colors
ones partake
with Christmastime
in winters wake.

A Hidden World

A winter scene
that times unfurled
might disclose
a hidden world.
A magical place
where life collides
a winter scene
with snowy rides
A Christmas moment
surely seen
a hidden world
as many dream.
Times remembered
of a place
a hidden world
with a smiling face.
Those memories
inside your mind
a hidden world
will surely find.
Childhood days
that you recall
a hidden world
with a bouncy ball.
So now remember
oh so sweet
a hidden world
that times accrete.
Gathered by
your memories
a hidden world
of deep blue seas.
All those times
that brought a smile
the hidden world
will help awhile.
Yet don’t live
always unfurled
deep within
a hidden world.
For right now
needs you so true
to do the things
you need to do.
Find that Christmas
in your heart
and make today’s
a work of art.
Christmas blessings
live and breathe
if you’ll only
just believe.
Don’t let doubt to
drowned your soul
a hidden world
shows Christmas gold.
A hidden world
of you and me
needs uncovered
then to see.
Allowing Christmas
then to grow
maybe with
some Christmas snow.

Deep Blue Seas

While waves are crashing
on our shores
we often hear some
past folklores.
With deep blue seas
of days gone by
our lives move on
until we die.
Our hearts find moments
echoing true
some deep blue seas
of me and you.
Our own shadows
times record
deep blue seas
of just reward.
Yet we often
do not claim
the deep blue seas
we did attain.
Sometimes journeys
far and wide
leave us empty
deep inside.
Then those times
of deep blue seas
truly show
what time agrees.
It’s those moments
that we need
to begin agin
with planted seed.
Changing daily
with each choice
with deep blue seas
of better voice.

Haiku
for Sept 6,  2014

In but a moment
our lives will display shadows
of our yesteryears.

Todays choices
are often just disasters
needing rethinking.

As many move on
parts of them get left behind
in others lifestyles.

Many leave their lies
as the only information
about who they are.

Looks from another
usually say a lot
without any words.

Our own emotions
tend to lie from time to time
causing us much grief.

A page in our life
contains many of our thoughts
that many misread.

Discipline from God
might seem to be tremendous,
but we are much worse.

Living in the past
could prevent you from growing,
so live in today.

Without yesterday
today has nary a chance,
for lessons are learned.

Seasonal thinking
creates today’s excitement
for what that’s to come.

Autumn leaves will fall
when wintertime comes knocking
and snow starts to fall.

As rivers will flow,
so will the lives of many
maybe changing course.

Looking for flowers
might expose quite a few weeds
that look like flowers.

Expecting good deeds
could find you just awaiting
for good in return.

Beyond our eyesight
are things we might hear and smell
and know much better.

Minutes tick onwards
as days and weeks pass us by
leaving our shadows.

Nows after affects
will sometimes seem quite awkward,
but maybe be right.

Our doors and windows
open and close with new things
to see and to do.

A dogs forgiveness
is greater than that of ours.
It carries no grudge.

Taking precautions
might become our own hindrance
preparing to much.

Love in its fabric
is sown together in time
with threads of Jesus.
