ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
&
MERRY CHRISTMAS

This winter has gotten off to a slow start and
by the looks of things we might not have a white
Christmas unless the weather makes changes.
I am still wishing for snow.  If we don’t have
snow it will be the first time since we moved up
here December 2007 that we haven’t had snow
for Christmas.  I’m hoping for snow even more
so being my daughter and granddaughter are
coming up for Christmas and they want to see
a white Christmas.  If it doesn’t snow,  there
might still be some snow on the ground that’s
left over from earlier hopefully.  No matter I’m
sure we will have a great Christmas.  I’m sure
we will take tons of pictures.  Right now there
is still a lot of snow outside and 25 F degrees.
Judy just got up and came in here with me and
the boys.  Benny heard her in the bedroom and
started barking LOL.  I stopped for a moment
to fix Judy,  I and the boys some breakfast just
a bit ago,  but had to wash dishes first.  While
I was washing,  Benny started barking again
telling me someone was driving up and it was
Helena,  Judy’s youngest daughter.  Her and
her son Christian came for a visit.  So it looks
like breakfast will have to wait.  I’ll stop here
so I can go and visit with them.  I’ll be back 🙂
OK,  so they are gone and I got back started
making us breakfast.  It was rather hard to
do,  being my potassium level must of gone
way down making me real shaky.  I dropped
2 eggs and another ended up with the yolk on
the napkin and shell in the egg cracking cup.
LOL,  I did though finally manage to get us
some waffles,  eggs and sausage cooked.  We
were both getting a little shaky.  Hers from
her diabetes and mine from my potassium
level not able to be normal due to my lack
of a colon and the fact that my body since
birth will not retain potassium.  OH well,  I
got us fed and we’re both functioning back at
our normal again hehehe.  Now back to the
journal.  It’s 22 F degrees right now at 5 PM.
There’s a slight chance for snow tomorrow.
Who knows,  the weather might throw us a
curve ball and switch to a more winterish
theme.  Of course,  in Texas where I’m from
this is more than a winterish theme,  but not
for up here.  Benny and Rocky had a great
visit with their cousin Khione,  Helena’s and
Christian’s dog.  I had all three jumping up
in my lap at different intervals.  Khione and
Rocky ended up in my lap at the same time
for a bit.  Judy took pictures of them hehehe.
I sat in the floor in front of our Christmas
tree and then had all three dogs sitting with
me.  Judy took a number of pictures of that.
Me in my pj’s,  red of course LOL.  So what
did you think Santa Bill would be wearing?
Judy spent all last night baking cookies for
Christmas.  I think she plans on doing more
baking tonight.  More cookies 🙂  We love
Christmas.  We’ve been watching Christmas
movies every day.  I’ve got Christmas music
playing in the bedroom right now.  Right now
Mama Kissing Santa Claus is playing hehehe.
So,  what else is going on around this place?
Judy’s daughter gave us an early Christmas
gift and of course Judy couldn’t wait to open
it hehehe.  It was a beautiful picture with the
words,  Family:  The ones you live with, laugh
with & love. Judy just took down one of our
old pictures and put it in place of it.  It’s very
pretty.  Judy and I are anxious for Jamye
and Sami as well as Jamye’s boyfriend Brian
and his son P.J. to get up here.  Jamye asked
me if we still had our Santa suits and I told
her yes.  I bought them a  while back.  She
said she’s got an elf costume and she’s going
to get one for Sami.  She want’s us to take
a Claus Family photo hehehe.  Helena said
she’s gonna wear her elf shirt and Mandy,
Judy’s oldest daughter has a Christmassy
outfit to wear too.  So,  we might all get a
picture to share for Christmases to come
if they come out halfway decent.  I’m sure
that Benny and Rocky will make it in a few
photos hehehe.  It’s 6 PM now and it’s just
1 degree colder than it was an hour ago  🙂
LOL I think Benny and Rocky are worn
out from playing with Khione.  They are
both lying in the floor sleeping.  It’s looking
like the Pearce’s Place will be enjoying
Christmas this week.  It will be a special
one for me being I have not been able to
spend a Christmas with my daughter for
many years.  It will be my first with my
granddaughter and that is a blessing to
me.  I hope and pray that we have many
more Christmases together.  It seems
that the days cannot go quick enough till
Christmas and sure enough they will go
way too fast as it passes.  I wish there
were a way to stop time.  I would relish
each and every frame.  Yet,  I am sure
we will create many memories in the few
days that they up are here.  So,  it looks
like Judy is back to baking more cookies.
This house smells like a batch of cookies.
LOL making me hungry,  but I must fight
the urge to eat them hehehe.  There’s not
much else to ramble about,  so I reckon
it’s time for me to be taking my little trip
back through all that I’ve written here
to see if I can find a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title of today’s new
poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that place
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I may have stumbled on
a good title just a few lines back.  Now,
let’s see what if anything at all I can do
with it.  Here goes nothing hehehe,  which
might be correct LOL.  I hope not though.

Every Frame

Seasons past
finds a place
every frame
a little taste.
Portions poured
found so sweet
every frame
will seem complete.
Certain people
come to mind
every frame
of Christmastime.
Painted journeys
far and wide
every frame
is love applied.
Many people
seek the glow
every frame
with Christmas snow.
Yet the snow
is not the means
every frame
of Christmas scenes.
For so many
close their eyes
every frame
for sought surprise.
Seeking blessings
times afford
every frame
from our sweet Lord.
Don’t let Christmas
find you blue
every frame
that lives in you.
For it’s Christmas
that revives
every frame
of hopeful eyes.
Find the blessings
seasons worth
every frame
from Jesus’ birth.

OK,  so there’s you a Christmas poem hehehe
like I haven’t written any others for you to read.
Yep,  I have.  Anyways,  before we discuss that,
I wanted to see if there was anything else that I
needed to tell you.  My sister is doing well and
the doctors are going to set up a surgery for her
in January to take care of her breast cancer.
Keep her in your prayers.  She will be OK for
God is in control.  I love you Peggy.  Always
know that you can call me any time.  I’m here
for you.  I might be many miles away,  but my
love travels the distance and if I can help in any
way such as just a ear to listen,  then give me
a call.  My mom is doing well and it seems my
grandmother (my mom’s mom) is doing well
also.  I love you mom and wish you a very
merry Christmas.  I’ll call ya,  but you know
that hehehe.  I call ya almost every day huh.
I would call grandmother,  but her hearing
is not that great and it would be a sort of
one sided phone call.  Well,  there isn’t much
else to tell you,  other than what I tell you
almost every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems with 9 of them once again being sort
of Christmassy.  I also wrote 22 more haiku
for all of the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like.  Now,  I believe it’s time for me
to begin my search for that not so elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful weekend and a blessings filled
week with a very merry Christmas or what
ever you celebrate.  I myself am a Christmas
lover.  So,  now to find that silly off switch
that each week is supposed to try an hide
from me.  Now,  where are you ya little
varmint?  Hahahaha,  I see ya there right
behind my PC camera.  Not quite enough
room for you to hide there is it huh LOL!
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Searching The Sky

A child thinks of Christmas
as magic to find
while searching the sky
for reindeer in line.
Found with some sleigh bells
while searching the sky
a child’s imagination
finds truth that will fly.
With Santa so jolly
in a sleigh that is red
filled full of presents
just like stories said.
A child keeps on dreaming
and hoping so true
while searching the sky
to see that great view.
The sleigh oh so magical
flies through the air
filling Children full of
hopeful and prayer.
Then as the evening
of Christmas is seen
the children are asleep
with him in a dream.

The Season Of Joy

Dreams of white winters
with times real McCoy
are glimmers of snowflakes
with the season of joy.
Christmastime’s passion
comes marching with glee
with the season of joy
for many to see.
Pathways of children
as footprints unfold
are often building
with snow that they’ve rolled.
Building a snowman
so jolly and white
in the season of joy
that they so delight.
Maybe then also
they’ll lie in the snow
making snow angels
arms and legs to and fro.
Then as the day ends
with Christmastime cheer
the season of joy will
show Santa near.

The Hereafter

As time begins ticking
from life unto death
we find oh so often
our lives without breath.
With each day counted
and the Hands of God
ones find the hereafter
the way that they trod.
Though our destinations
might not coincide,
for some seek for Heaven
and some have denied.
The hereafter journey
is a pathway in time
sought by so many
with daily to find,
But Lord God The Father
has our time and place
in the hereafter
with us saved by grace.

A Snowy Christmas

A winters day
with joy to find
a snowy day
with Christmastime.
Many dream
of flakes of white
a snowy Christmas
found in sight.
A scenic view
with trees that glisten
is what many
now are missing.
A snowy Christmas
winters way
is a dream
that many may.
Scenes of magic
in the air
a snowy Christmas
gives its flair.
So for Christmas
many dream
of that wonderful
Christmas scene.

Beyond The Flame

A fireplace burning
with holiday cheer
brings ones the magic
in this time of year.
The fire’s crackling
filled with desire
beyond the flame
what many admire.
With stockings hung
just waiting the thrill
for Santa to come
and each one to fill.
Beyond the flame
that burns so bright
many will sing
of Christmas delight.
Songs about Jesus
and how He was born
to give us grace
on Christmas morn.
He bought a chance
for you and I
beyond the flame
to rise so high.
So this Christmas
look and see
beyond the flame
what’s given free.
The flame of love
that burns so bright
from Heaven above
with His Bright Light.

A Special Feeling

This is the season
to find in your heart
a new life for living
as God’s work of art.
Your Christmas doorway
is waiting for you
a special feeling
for you to walk through.
Let all the sadness
to end as you pray
with Christmas magic
that lives in your day.
A special feeling
that Christmastime gives
comes from The Father
as Jesus Christ lives.
Let now your heartbeat
to fill full of love
with a special feeling
from Heaven above.

Seriously

Some think of Christmas
as just but a day
that is for buying,
but that’s not the way.
Seriously Christmas
is not about money
just like Easter
is not about the bunny.
Christmas is a day for
grateful so true
and thanking Lord Jesus
for me and for you.
Seriously many
will continue to buy
and forget truly
while they just deny.
Giving of yourself,
not just paying away
can seriously help ones
with their day to day.
So now this Christmas
try giving a hand
and seriously it might
help someone to stand.

Wayfaring Man

A heart that’s unstable,
a wayfaring man
might not find Christmas
with footsteps that land.
A person might travel
and not have a home,
a wayfaring man
that’s found all alone.
Often they’ll display
no need to be seen,
but when they’re asleep
a friends in their dream.
A wayfaring man
or a woman so true,
might not display
the way that they do.
For many people
will silently go
their wayfaring way
the way that they know.
So now this Christmas
don’t just walk on passed
someone you see
with a shadow they cast.
Sometimes appearances
are not so true
for a wayfaring man
could be me and you.

Lost In A Moment

Within but a minute
a moment comes by
bringing along seconds
that might seem to fly.
Speeding like a race car
with where all they went
lost in a time frame
lost in a moment.
Found as a season
that time has displayed
lost in a moment
is found Heaven made.
Time becomes echoes of
Christmases passed
as we remember
our time frames contrast.
Lost in a moment
Christmas is found
when it is seen with
its sight and sound.
Christmas songs playing
on the radio
bring back the blessings
that we used to know.
Old times remembered
as seasonal finds
lost in a moment
are greatest designs.

As I Recall

Now becomes decades,
spring unto fall
winter then enters
as I recall.
Christmastimes blessings
come into frame
as I recall
with peace to attain.
Time becomes pages
found in a book
written of Christmases
many mistook.
For as I recall
the days of my youth
were displayed of God
and Christmas of truth.
But I strayed away
a little off track,
but Jesus Christ helped me
find my way back.
Time can be lessons
spring unto fall
and winters of Christmases
as I recall.
So look for the blessings
through seasons of time
and then remember
Lord Jesus Divine.

Haiku
for Dec 17,  2015

Seasons of hurry
bring a lot of forgetfulness
and some regretful.

Limits of thunder
are as lightning holding back
as storm clouds pass by.

Nearing tomorrow
today might lose perspective
with worrying minds.

The winds of today
might blow different breezes
than what we wanted.

Lives of a robot
only squeak its arguments
when needing some oil.

A shadow alone
is without any reason
unless it has life.

Violins playing
can display so much sadness
if in the wrong tune.

Within a window
holds many different views
with a few questions.

Love of a moment
could prevent your want for change
that you truly need.

Never is a place
that lives in someone’s regret
or their happiness.

The loan wolf of time
walks amongst many the same
without them knowing.

Colorful paintings
might hang upon a lifetime
that no one will see.

Life of a flower
knows springtime until autumn,
then it falls asleep.

Conclusions journey
finds a wrong analysis
often with hurtful.

When lost in a dream
reality can be sad
when you awaken.

The wonders of time
are counted with perception
as each page is turned.

The age of today
finds its birthplace in the past
while time goes its way.

A yellow flower
finds a path through summertime
that’s just many weeds.

Pearlescent dreamers
are as glimmers of rainbows
found within their minds.

Having and holding
is not ones true ownership,
for it might be lost.

Joining with others
makes a chain of connections
not always so strong.

Lights that burn brightly
often leave many shadows
displayed on the walls.

It’s Been Known

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been unseasonably warm this winter
so far,  but I’m pretty sure that will change
as the days move forward.  This week has
a forecast of ice and snow.  Don’t yet know
how much though.  My weather alert says
4 to 6 inches of snow,  but as I have said
before,  that could all change to more or
less at the drop of a hat hehehe.  I do hope
that this year isn’t the one that we end up
without a white Christmas being that my
daughter and granddaughter are coming
up and wanting to see snow.  It would be
a bummer.  We’ve had a white Christmas
for the past 8 years that we have lived up
here.  Oh well,  it’s not like we have any
control over the weather.  It might snow.
It’s been known to snow on Christmas Eve.
Judy just told me that technically it’s still
fall until December 22.  Oh well,  Jamye
is planning on staying until the 28th so I’m
sure they will get to see some snow.  I’m
still banking on a white Christmas.  None
the less I’m sure it will be great.  OK,  so
onto the next topic.  I took a few pictures
of the boys running and playing in the snow
earlier last week.  They had a blast.  Rocky
seems to love the snow just as much as his
brother Benny.  Yep,  it seems that we have
2 snow dogs.  Judy and I took a drive up to
Presque Isle Tuesday to go to the super
Walmart and get us some new tires and
I took pictures all the way there as I always
do hehehe.  I also took a scenic drive by
myself Wednesday and found some great
places to stop and take pictures.  Most of
them were just a few miles from where
we live.  As you probably know,  I love to
take pictures and I’m sure there will be
more to take pictures of as winter grabs
a footing.  This has been an odd winter
and it’s taking a little longer to show its
face,  but I’m sure it will expose itself in
due time hehehe.  All of the previous snow
melted away by about Friday or so,  but it
will be back,  I guarantee it.   Right now
my Windows 8.1 PC is installing that
darned Windows 10 on it.  I’ve already
tried it out and uninstalled it,  but it’s
chosen to update on its own,  so it looks
like I will be uninstalling it after it has
finished installing LOL.  Windows 10
sucks.  More of my programs will not
work using it.  At least Windows 8.1
works with a few of them.  Still it has
that email problem that makes me not
use it for my main PC.  Windows 8.1
nor Windows 10 will let me install my
Outlook Express on them and that is
the only email program that seems to
work for me,  so I will continue using
this PC that has Windows XP Pro on it.
I don’t need all those Windows updates.
They’re most times just memory hogs
anyways.  I have my other programs
that will keep it safe and operating as
it should be,  so who needs their updates.
Don’t they realize that in general,  many
people cannot afford Windows 10 or
to upgrade their PC’s so that Windows
10 will work on them.   The same with
Windows 8.  They both require many
PC hardware updates that a lot of us
can’t afford.  I think Microsoft needs
to let people choose which program
that they want to run.  I HATE version
10.  I also hate version 8.1,  but it’s
better than 10 LOL.  Ok,  so enough
with my ranting about Microsoft hehehe.
I made Judy,  I and the boys breakfast
just a bit ago and had to stop and eat,
but I’m done now.  The boys are doing
OK.  Rocky seems to always want to
be the center of attention 🙂   Benny
is begging for treats from Judy hehehe.
Rocky lets Benny do the begging and
then reaps the rewards.  Benny has
a weird way of begging.  He talks in
many different octaves.  He can sort
of pronounce words such as I love
you and Mama along with I want 🙂
LOL,  we would end up with a gabby
one wouldn’t we.  Milo used to do
the talking,  but he didn’t talk near
as much as Benny.  No matter,  we
love these boys.  There’s not much
else that has gone on around here this
passed week.  The Hand of God has
been watching over us as always and
providing what we are unable to do
for ourselves.  My sister is still needing
your prayers.  The doctors said her
cancer isn’t spreading and so they’re
setting up a schedule to do whatever
needs to be done in January.  I don’t
think they’ll do radiation again being
she has already been through that with
the first bout with the cancer in 1999.
In any case,  please keep Peggy in your
prayers.  Her birthday was Dec 6 and
I wrote her a birthday poem and put
it into a picture that she can frame.
I wish I could be there for you Peggy,
but as I’ve said many times,  prayer
travels many miles.  Hang in there sis.
God is always in control.  So,  now
I reckon it’s time for me to begin my
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 of 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 may
have stumbled upon a decent title near
the beginning of my rambling.  Now to
see if I can do anything with it hehehe.
Here goes……Blast off

It’s Been Known

Those times we remember,
those times we recall,
it’s been known to be seen with
the same spring to fall.
Each and every moment
that we might see today,
will be somehow be found now
a remembered display.
Yet so many times we look back
and search to find true,
we are often just remembering
our dismembered view.
It’s been known to be saddening
with times that you miss,
as you might just so often
sit around and reminisce.
Let the times you’ve been happy
to be found it’s been known
as you strive on your journey
for more to be flown.
More days of happiness
that are found from within,
for it’s been known truly,
that with God it can begin.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope I didn’t bore you
too much with my PC ranting LOL,  but if
I did,  well there ya go,  I’m human hehehe.
Benny almost made me wet myself when he
jumped up and started barking and ran out
of the room headed for the front door LOL.
It turned out that he was barking at nothing
AGAIN.  He hears our neighbors and thinks
he’s gotta protect us from them.  Problem
is,  our neighbors are quite a distance from
our house LOL.  Benny is our little overly
active doorbell/security alarm.  What would
we do without him hehehe?  He’s now lying
in his doggy bed right beside me.  Rocky is
lying under Judy’s chair using the legs of
her chair as a pillow hehehe.  We love our
little boys.  Well I reckon it’s time for me to
tell you what I tell you almost every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,  but this time
9 of them are Christmas poems hehehehe.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
Now,  I guess it’s time for me to begin my
search for that not so elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend or whatever is left of it and a
blessings filled week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  OK,  so where
are ya hiding this week ya ornery little
whippersnapper?  LOL,  I think I spy
a piece of lumpy paper that should not
have no lumps at all.  I see ya hiding
under the Walmart tire receipt hehehe.
I almost didn’t see ya,  but you coughed.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

P.S.  Happy birthday Peggy (sis).  I love you.

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Christmas Beginnings

Seasons with journeys,
spring unto winter
Christmas beginnings
come front and center.
The stage is well formed
as time is begun
Christmas beginnings
with Christmas songs sung.
All of the wonders
of every display
Christmas beginnings
can be every day.
Great times of blessings
with our memories
Christmas beginnings
are then as the leaves.
Sometimes found rustling
as time goes around
Christmas beginnings
will always be found.
Maybe with snowflakes
falling to Earth
Christmas beginnings
speak Jesus’ birth.
Then with the stage set
of hopeful for free
Christmas beginnings
display history.
Within a manger
the time is begun
Christmas beginnings
show of God’s Son.
Then as time moves on
and Lord Jesus shines
Christmas beginnings
are the greatest of times.

Leftover Magic

As December’s magic
is shadows we see
the new year begins with
blessings for free.
Though many blessings
might not seem so clear
and left over magic
might fade in the year.
Sometimes that magic
is lost in our heart
seen as a memory
time frames apart.
That leftover magic
can still come alive
if you will let it
to daily survive.
Don’t let your journeys
to lose track of time
and discern Christmas
as just in your mind.
It is a moment
that can live and breathe
with left over magic
if you will believe.

Snowflakes Illusions

Lost in a whirlwind
the snowflakes will blow
some as illusions
that seem to just grow.
So many snowflakes
fall from above
to float down so graceful
and show us their love.
Snowflakes illusions
might look like a sheet
coming in waves
to land at my feet.
Some make snow ice cream
and some have a plan
to roll up so nicely
and make a snowman.
These are the memories
sometimes as elusions
hard to catch surely
as snowflakes illusions.
Christmas with magical
white snow of time
creating some wonders
that are so divine.
Snowflakes illusions
can be anything
a Christmastime flake
in songs that we sing.
Yet they are wondrous
those snowflakes I see
and not all illusions
that are happy and free.
Some are as pages
of books that we read
snowflakes illusions
that seem to plant seed.
Christmastimes joy
in a wondrous detail
aren’t snowflakes illusions,
but magic set sail.

Sitting Up In bed

The sweet eve of Christmas
is now on my mind
as I count the minutes
till that wondrous time.
It seems that I’m restless
and searching for snow,
while sitting up in bed
and looking to and fro.
The minutes pass slowly
and time moves along
while sitting up in bed
just singing a song.
A song about Jesus
and a little drummer boy,
a song about Santa
and oh so much joy.
I think of all the wonders
that Christmas entails
while sitting up in bed
and biting my nails.
I then lay my head down
and try to go to sleep
as I start counting
those bushy white sheep.
Those sheep turn to snow
as dreams in my head
and I wake up again
just sitting up in bed .

A Tiny Speck

A small amount
of hope so true
can create
a better you.
Letting blessings
find your heart
a tiny speck
will help you start.
The smallest grain
of hope and love
can be more
than push and shove.
A tiny speck
of God for free
can change you
and what ones see.
The passageways
that ones forget
are what can come
from a tiny speck.
A little hopeful
from within
a tiny speck
can then begin.

Your Souls Desire

Dreams of Christmas
and its flame,
your souls desire
might attain.
But it needs some
Jesus love
come from Heaven
up above.
Your souls desire
might fall prey
to the wants
a wrongful way.
Christmas gifts
without a heart
your souls desire
falls apart.
Look within
your souls desire
and see what burns
your truthful fire.
Let God’s glow
find you with praise
your souls desire
better days.

The Look Of Christmas

That sight within minds
that many don’t see
is the look of Christmas
in you and in me.
So often we might just
fear to show true
that very special look
that’s in me and you.
Don’t let your spirit
to just hide away.
Give the look of Christmas
in your every day.
Sure there are others
that are not as the same,
they celebrate the day,
but not the same name.
Also there are many
that do not at all
celebrate Christmas
that you might appall.
But remember now truly
what we are to do
and love one another
though different our view.
We are God’s children
though different we sway
so keep the look of  Christmas
within your own way.
Love Jesus truly
the way that He meant
for the look of Christmas
is still Heaven sent.

Passageways

So many passageways
through our own minds
will lead us in directions
to so many times.
Wintertime’s doorways
of which December paves
finds scenes of Christmas
in those passageways.
Driving down the road
in those Christmassy nights
there are some passageways
with many lights.
Colors all a gleaming
of red, green and blue,
while we drive around
to look at the view.
Passageways of twinkles
that glisten so fine
are often with the essence of
Christmas devine.

Snow For Christmas

My heart seeks signs
of Christmas snow,
in hopes by Christmas
it will flow.
Snow for Christmas
great to see,
to build a snowman
fancy free.
A simple sight
of flakes to fall,
which to land
and cover all.
Snow for Christmas
I seek true,
each flake falling
quite a few.
Now I’m dreaming
wide awake,
snow for Christmas
to partake.
Reaching out to
catch of few,
snowflakes falling
in my view.
Snow for Christmas
is my wish,
for them falling
sway and swish.
Christmas hopefuls
song and dance,
snow for Christmas
in advance.

Beside The Fireplace

Together with family
right by the fire,
Christmas was burning
so full of desire.
The smell of food cooking
that soon we would eat,
beside the fireplace
where we would meet.
My cousin there with me
as we would just play,
beside the fireplace
day after day.
Those wonderful moments
my grandparents shown,
beside the fireplace
now are just known.
Memories living
of Christmas so great,
singing and playing
I did so elate.
Now those days are gone,
but they live deep inside,
times beside the fireplace
Christmas applied.

Haiku
for Dec 12,  2015

Hurry is problem
when you cannot keep your stride
and you hurt someone.

The many storm clouds
that we might see as problems,
might be our blessings.

A sound in the night
that is hidden from your view
could be what’s misheard.

As days move forward
they leave portions of themselves
found in tomorrow.

Escaping the truth
cannot be done by lying,
for the truth will win.

Beneath an action
there’s often motivation
either good or bad.

Various people
leave their feelings covered up
and explode often.

Within a moment
holds many choices to make
with a few mistakes.

Lost in a whirlwind
a flower seed might be found,
but still find its life.

Inflated egos
will often be found alone
as time goes its way.

Flourishing heartbeats
might one day find companions
if they are patient.

Today’s guiding light
could be angels in disguise
in form of your friends.

A cloud passes by
leaving a few memories
if you sought to see.

Believing needs faith
for many things we can’t see
are in existance.

The branch of a tree
might look as though it is dead,
but still have some life.

There’s still a blue sky
even if you can’t see it,
for it hides from view.

As the moon moves on
it reflects its bright glimmer
as shadows of night.

The dawn of morning
brings many new sights to see
if we look for them.

Nearing tomorrow
are the minutes and seconds
that are connecting.

Born to imagine,
it helps us each to create
from what that’s not there.

A bird that’s in flight
might lose itself in a cloud
and find a rainbow.

The stars that twinkle
have only their memories
to shine in the night.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well I’m getting a late start on my writing
today being that Judy and I went over her
daughters house to have dinner and visit
and we didn’t get back till a little while ago.
Mandy can cook great.  Judy and I had a
nice visit,  but we had to get back home to
let the boys out of their crates.  They had
to stay home.  So,  hmm what else has gone
on around this place this passed week? We
managed to get some great pictures last
week.  Yep,  we even took some of Judy
and I in our Mr. and Mrs. Santa clothes.
They came out pretty good.  We hadn’t
taken any since we did them in 2012 our
first Christmas with Benny and Milo,  so
we figured we needed to do some new ones
with Benny and Rocky.  Oddly the first
picture in both indoors and outdoors was
the best of all that we took.  I always take
many photos just in case I get a better
shot.  In this case,  I didn’t need all of
the others LOL.  Judy took a number of
photos of me using the snow blower on
our driveway and then also a few of me
and the boys out in the field with me in
my Santa suit.  I later took the boys out
for a walk further out in the field and
took a few pictures of them.  It seems
that Rocky loves the snow as much as
Benny 🙂  We were hoping he would.
There is still a lot of snow outside,  but
it’s quickly melting away.  There should
be some more snow to come in a week
or so.  We’ve had a white Christmas
every year since we moved up here 8
years ago and I hope we have one this
year as well,  being my daughter and
granddaughter are wanting to see one.
With that El Nino who can tell?  The
weathermen are guessing and each
one has a different view.  So only God
knows.  Hopefully though the weather
turns more Christmassy for Christmas.
OK,  so what else is there to yammer
about?  Well,  Thursday we went to
Walmart to do some shopping and got
our Christmas shopping done as well
as our grocery shopping hehehe.  So,
we are done.  We will have to go back
for the basic foods such as eggs and
milk etc,  but for the most part we
are good for at least a week.  Benny
and Rocky are doing well.  Right now
Rocky is busy playing with the toys
that go squeak and he’s driving me
crazy LOL.  That boy has hauled so
many dogs toys in here that you can’t
take a step without stepping on one 🙂
Judy and I will pick them up and put
them away and he will be right behind
us grabbing them to take back into
the PC room hehehe.  At the moment
I count 24 squeaky dog toys in the floor.
Rocky was watching me count hehehe.
At least it’s an even number HaHaHa.
Like that matters to him, or me.  LOL
right now he’s busy trying to get Benny
to chase him,  but Benny just stands
and waits for him to come back so he
came jump him hehehe.  Talk about
distractions 😉  Oh yea,  when we were
leaving from Judy’s daughters house
to come home,  we took some pictures
of the snowman and snow dog that
our granddaughter Rylee built LOL.
Both Judy and I took pictures with
both of our cameras hoping to get a
good picture.  It was slippery as all
get out and we had to watch our step.
I think we got a few good shots.  I
took one of Judy standing in front
of the snowman and snow dog LOL.
I just got a Facebook message from
my daughter with her asking me if
we can make snow ice cream when
she comes up hehehe.  We shall see.
The weather is out of our control,  but
I’m banking on snow for Christmas.
In any case I’m sure it will be a great
Christmas.  Jamye and Sami will meet
their extended family up here.  They
are anxious to meet them as well 🙂
I’ll also get a chance to meet Jamye’s
boyfriend Brian and his son P.J.  It’s,
going be a wonderful time.  OK so
what else is going on up this ways?
OH yea,  my sister is in need of your
prayers.  Her cancer has returned
and they are talking this time about
surgery.  She went through all of the
radiation treatments years back,  so
please keep her in your prayers.  If
you know her phone number,  do not
call her PLEASE.  She doesn’t need
to be bothered right now.  She is a
strong woman and she has her mom
and me as well as her kids if she needs
to talk.  I love you Peggy.  Hang in
there.  Lord God is always in control.
Judy and I are holding our on as we
watch each day go by.  We always
know that God’s hands are holding
us,  protecting us from evils of life.
Yet,  we know that with life comes
many trials that we must endure,
for we are human.  Each trial will
make us stronger if we do not give
up. I have learned many things as my
life has met quite a few bumpy roads
that took me for a ride,  but I am
much stronger that I have endured.
Let Jesus walk with you down your
daily path of winding roads.  He will
carry you when you are found too
weak to walk.  Left in His Hands you
cannot go wrong.  So,  I reckon it’s
time for me to begin my search 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
just a few lines back and so the chore
begins to try and write something that
makes sense using it LOL.  Here goes.

Bumpy Roads

Traveled journeys
far and wide,
bumpy roads
we’ll often ride.
Times so rocky
might just be
bumpy roads
to help you see.
Listless travels
that we find
might just help
to change our mind.
Bumpy roads
of worried faces
might lead to
some better places.
Yet some moments
might display
bumpy roads
the weirdest way.
Scenes remembered
heavy loads
might be God sent
bumpy roads.

OK,  so there ya go.  I was going to write
a Christmas poem,  but then I found this
other title (Bumpy Roads) and figured that
I would save the other title for next weeks
Christmas poems hehehe.  I hope you liked
the poem and understood it.  Also I hope
that you enjoyed my rambling hehehehehe.
If not,  then I’m so sorry hehehe,  NOT 🙂
No,  I’m quite sure that I will not please all
of you all of the time.  Everybody doesn’t
always agree on everything or anything.
Yep,  we all have our differences and I am
thankful for that.  Could you imagine this
world if everybody was exactly the same?
We would bore each other to death hehehe.
For that matter,  how would we function if
we’re all police,  doctor,  lawyer,  teacher,
etc?  You see my point or at least I hope
a few of you do LOL.  Who would you be
teaching if everybody is a teacher and
the same for everything else.  So thank
God that we each are different,  for Even
identical twins have their own pathways
and personalities .  LOL I should know,
I’m married to one hehehe.  So I hope
I’ve either amused you or taught you
something.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to tell you what I tell you almost
every week and that is I wrote some
more poems and haiku.   Yeppers 10
more poems with 7 of them this time
being Christmas poems.  Also I once
again wrote 22 haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like.  Now I believe it’s time for me to
be searching for that not so great at
hiding off switch,  but not before I
wish you a truly blessings filled week
being the weekend is pretty much over
with.  At least it is up this way LOL.
Now,  where is that confounded off
switch hiding this time?  Well,  I’ll be.
it looks like he actually put in some
effort in his hiding place this week :),
but I still can see ya dude.  Hiding
underneath my K2 meter that I’ve got
sitting next to me on the printer LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

P.S.  Happy birthday Peggy (sis).  I love you.

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Season’s Snow

The winds of winter
churn day to day
as the season’s snow
displays in its way.
Blowing profusely
as snowflakes of time
the season is found
with many a rhyme.
Ones singing sweetly
songs they remember
of the season’s snow
that’s found in December.
Epic are the scenes
so fluorescent white
within the seasonal
each day and night.
For even the darkness
is found with a glow
reflecting the moonlight
down on the snow.
The first of the season
is magic to see
as it shows blessings
the greatest degree.
Lights all a twinkling
seen to and fro
are found in the moment
of this season’s snow.

Moments Remembered

Decembers doorways
are coming in frame
as this great season
entails Jesus name.
Searching through snowflakes
to find what that’s true
Decembers doorways
are coming in view.
Moments remembered
from times long ago
become as the pathways
to help us to grow.
Lessons repeated
that we overlook,
moments remembered
so timeless mistook.
Not seeing blessings
as they come in frame,
many just trudge on
each day as the same.
Moments remembered
are times we should see
truth within Christmas
and what it should be.
Let your heart blossom
as roses of love
singing of Christmas
from Lord God above.

Lost In Description

Losing your pathway
to darkness of life
lost in description
will fill you with strife.
Let not the sadness
that time gives to you
become the only
way that you view.
For there is goodness
somewhere in a way
lost in description
that you view each day.
Often it’s hidden
beneath moments pain
needing a moment
for you to attain.
Lost in description
you might misconstrue
all of the blessings
that God’s given you.

Some Just Forget

Christmas holds patterns
that many perceive
and some just forget
how they’re to believe.
Some move along
too quickly through time
and stop believing
in blessings to find.
Many sought Santa
on throughout the night
Christmas Eve surely
until morning light.
Some just forget
what the magic entails
giving is better
than living in shells.
Christmas is blessings
and not just a day,
but some just forget
that wonderful way.
Let Christmas joyful
to live within you
and find all the magic
that there is to view.
Don’t just forget
what Christmas can be.
Let Jesus Christ to
help you to see.
Don’t become someone
with hateful regret
and then be known for
as some just forget.

Hearts Change

As many change
and hearts are destroyed
we are then needing
Lord Jesus deployed.
Many lose Christmas
as time goes away
then as hearts change
their love is to pay.
Christmas can be
a reviver so true
while making hearts change
much better to view.
So lose your anger
and find peace within
and see hearts change
forgiven from sin.
Don’t let tomorrow
to become destroyed.
See how hearts change
with Jesus employed.
Christmas then found
as hearts beating true
the essence of love
for me and for you.
Let your decisions
to be better made
displaying as hearts change
with every sin paid.

Simply Believing

Winds of a doorway
open and close
simply believing
a child does suppose.
Christmastimes scenes
come to life no deny
while simply believing
is Santa in the sky.
A young child with hopeful
and dreams to come true
turns simply believing
to things they can view.
Maybe in a dream
or a wishful desire
simply believing
burns bright as a fire.
A young Christmas heart
finds Santa Claus joy
while simply believing
in a Christmastime toy.

Various Styles

Minds of a journey
various styles
often display as
frowns and smiles.
Some with a moment
headed thereunto
various styles are
found then to view.
Minutes tick onwards
as time moves along
while various styles
are dusk unto dawn.
Many seek Heaven
while ones look away
as various styles
are found day to day.
God gives us chances
for so many miles
to help the confusion
of various styles.

A Star Lit Sky

A porthole is seen
in the dark of the night
a sleigh with reindeer
and one with a light.
Santa Claus flying
so high Christmas Eve
in a star lit sky
that I do perceive.
Sleigh bells a jingling
just like a song
in a star lit sky
to soon then be gone.
The moon up above
I cannot deny
is helping Santa
in a star lit sky.
Yet with the twinkle
of Rudolf’s nose
helps Santa’s sleigh
when surely it snows.
For then with snowflakes
and no stars to see
Rudolf guides Santa
across the blue sea.
But when it’s clear then
Santa will fly
with all the help from
a star lit sky.

A Dream Of White

A Christmas dream
I do delight
found so sweet
a dream of white.
A dream of snowflakes
falling free
a dream of white
for me to see.
Christmas music
ones sing along
a dream of white
from dusk to dawn.
The seasons flurries
day and night
are found within
a dream of white.
Lights seen twinkling
red,  blue and green
a dream of white
the best I’ve seen.
The solemn beauty
Christmas shows
a dream of white
that God bestows.
Maybe only
a dream of white,
but it’s beauty
I do delight.

The Minutes Pass

With the daylight
passing through
time bestows
a wondrous hue.
The minutes pass
with time to spare
as ones find
some time for prayer.
A moment’s gathered
such to see,
the minutes pass
you must agree.
For so often
wasting away
the minutes pass
to another day.
Procrastination
comes on cue,
the minutes pass
with thereunto.
Allowing time to
fly on by,
the minutes pass
and then you die.
So don’t wait to
do what’s right,
the minutes pass
now seek the light.
Let God’s glory
live and breathe,
the minutes pass
how you believe.
Don’t let minutes
just to be
the minutes pass
to history.

Haiku
for Dec 5,  2015

With but a worry
the chance for failure exist,
for you’ll create it.

Perceived discretion
can look just like prejudice,
but be just caution.

Without emotions
we would all just be empty
with no expressions.

A true field of dreams
lives within a hearts desire,
if it’s meant to be.

Varieties seen
expose different doorways
of which to choose from.

Beyond what we see
there’s another place to find
that waits to be found.

So many people
lose their faith in Lord Jesus,
when told they must change.

Ignorance of truth
does not give right for the wrong,
for we need to learn.

Displayed as flavors
a season might seem to be
colors of taste buds.

Sudden storm showers
will leave their footprints in time
as flooding waters.

Beside a second
might sit a portion of time
that we’ve forgotten.

Blessings uncounted
might soon be overflowing
without our knowledge.

A distant flower
that your eyes have laid upon,
might just be a weed.

Patterns that we’ve made
are sure to change as we grow,
making new patterns.

Perfection is fool,
for nobody is perfect,
except Jesus Christ.

Left over choices
could become our dynamite
that we should forget.

Your own reflection
will look inside of your heart
for you know it’s there.

Heartbeats entwined
can become as one heartbeat
through the love of God.

A silent venture
will maybe end in trouble,
with none to rescue.

In the starry skies
holds a place to imagine
and fill up your dreams.

Hillsides of venture
might hold quite a few landslides,
so take heed your stride.

Despair of what’s gone
needs be filled with thankfulness
for what all you have.
