Taking Pictures


Hello my friends

I had another few days not so feeling well and therefore
I didn’t write my poems and haiku until Sunday and so
I didn’t get started on my journal until right about now
which is a little after 3 AM Monday morning LOL.  Oh
well.  Life goes on.  Judy didn’t have to go to her sisters
house Sunday so we just made a lazy day of it.  I’m not
feeling much better,  but I will live,  I think :).  Anyways,
it was a rather peaceful day around here Sunday. We
did manage to take the boys for a little walk in the field
so that they could run around a bit.  It helps to loosen
up Milo’s bowels.  Benny just had fun running around
as he always does.  I wish I had just a 10th of the energy
that Benny has LOL.  Oh well,  I’m happy that I’m able
to take care of them.  Judy and I spoil them both quite
a bit hehehe.  I have a doctors appointment early next
month.  Hopefully he can help me to get feeling better.
Anyways,  on with the journal.  The weather has been
going back and forth lately with the temperatures.  By
morning it’s supposed to be 30 F degrees.  Right now
at 3:46 AM it’s 37 F degrees.  Milo is in the bedroom
with Judy sleeping in a doggy bed.  Benny is in here
with me sleeping in a doggy bed.  I’m just waiting for
Benny to wake up and start scratching at the door to
go in there with Milo hehehe,  but so far,  he’s sound
asleep.  He’s opened his eyes a few times and peeked
at me,  but then gone right back to sleep.  I bought Judy
a new external hard drive so she could move all of her
pictures and stuff over to it and I could copy all of my
pictures over to it so she could use them.  Her PC was
becoming sluggish being she only had about a gig of
free space left on it hehehe.  It’s running much better
now with almost 30 gig free.  Her PC only has a 70
gig hard drive.  Anyways,  she now has a large 500 gig
external hard drive like mine.  Boy,  the days are sure
getting short.  It seems that the day is gone before it
even begins LOL.  Yeppers the closer to wintertime
the shorter the days will be.  Being honest,  I’m kind
of excited for the sight of the first good snow.  Even
Judy said she loves to watch it snow and see all of the
scenes come alive with glittery affects on the trees.
We both love taking pictures hehehe as if ya didn’t
know LOL.  All though I do believe that I might take
just a few more pictures than she does hehehe.  It’s
in my blood.  Yet,  we both love reminiscing through
our photos of now and then.  Benny is on his back now
with his legs spread eagle LOL.  That’s how he gets
when he is relaxed and in a deep sleep.  We love our
little boys hehehe.  So off of that subject,  how are you
doing?  We’ve been keeping tabs on the Ebola crisis
and it’s worrying us.  Judy has told my daughter that
her and Sami are welcomed up here if it gets too bad.
I hope and pray that they finally get that crisis under
control.  I think my mom and sister know that they’re
welcomed up here :).  We haven’t got a lot,  but we
will do what we must do.  Although,  we haven’t heard
of anymore Ebola cases in the last few days.  They’ve
had a few scares,  but they came out clean.  We are
definitely staying in prayer about it and the Isis battle.
Remember,  God is in control and things will work out
the way that they are supposed to whether we like it
or not.  God sees the full picture,  but we only see a
portion of it.  I guess it’s time for me to be searching
for a word or phrase through all that I’ve written here
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 now after checking I
see that it hasn’t been used yet,  so here we go LOL.
It’s being used today :).

Taking Pictures

Scenes transcending
into views
taking pictures
win or lose.
Some days folded
into play
become pictures
day by day.
With the seasons
changing scenes
we get colors
white to green.
Taking pictures
becomes found
with us walking
all around.
God gives blessings
pictures sights
in the days
and also nights.
With those blessings
comes a view
taking pictures
how we do.
So with pictures
we recall
winter, spring
and summer, fall.
Then we find our
reason why
taking pictures
by and by.

🙂 I know,  it’s corny,  but it’s what that came to mind
and I always write the first thing I think of hehehehe.
Anyways,  if you want more poems to read,  I’m sure
you’ll find more at the end of my rambling 🙂 and yes
of course,  I wrote 10 more poems with 1 of them being
sort of Christmassy.  I also wrote 22 more haiku for
all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can find
1 or 2 of either or both that you like.  So,  now I think
it’s time for me to be searching for that not so elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most wonderful
God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now where is that off switch hiding this week?
OK already,  I can see ya pretty clearly hiding under
my 9 volt battery pack.  It’s not lying quite as flat as
it would be without you under it ya silly thing hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzz literally zzzzzzzzzz :).

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

South Winds Blow

Through the daylight
south winds blow
here and there
the way they go.
The winds directions
blow so strong
day to day
with dusk to dawn.
The south winds blow
with churning times
bringing in
some great designs.
Painted pathways
here and there
south winds blow
a wondrous flair.
Throughout time
the south winds blow
then with winter
in comes snow.
Northern winds blow
bringing change
as the seasons
South winds blow then
surely so
flakes of white with
northern snow.

Those Autumn Leaves

When autumn arrives
it brings many views
red,  yellow,  greens
with browns and some blues.
Those autumn leaves
display such a sight
that which is seen
from daylight to night.
Painted emotions
of autumns displays
journey as artists
with brushstrokes of days.
God takes those colors
and spreads them around
when after it’s over
they fall to the ground.
Yet those autumn leaves
still paint where they lay
brush stokes of wonders
with day after day.

Sights To See

Seasons come with
sights to see
some with raindrops
given free.
Then some sights are
displayed dry
with a few clouds
in the sky.
Some of the sights
are just found
with some snowflakes
blown around.
Yet some people
to and fro
are just searching
blindly so.
Not perceiving
God’s delight
found within each
day and night.
Not allowing
what could be
as the best of
sights to see.

Younger Years

When I was younger
I thought I had time
for many pathways
of better to find,
but found mistaken
I surely was seen
living a nightmare
not that of a dream.
Those days long ago
were self will run wild
with my younger years
and me as a child.
I did though have fun
when I allowed it so,
but it soon darkened
the places I’d go.
Now as a grown up
I understand more
how my younger years
got through the door.
I became stubborn
with my own desires
that as time went on
it lit many fires.
My younger years
give lessons today
with how that Lord Jesus
would never walk away.
He was there with me
as I messed around
but He knew lessons
would surely be found.

Time Flies By

As many moments
become just a thought
our time flies by
a little a lot.
Time becomes hurried,
but yet we don’t see
the echoes of then
in our history.
Yes, time flies by
with pages not read
due to us thinking
we’ll see it instead.
Yet when a moment
comes before you,
you find that you don’t
know what you’re to do.
Our time flies by
as seasonal suns
ricocheting off of
unloaded guns.
Yes,  time flies by
with thinking not found
and then when in need
you’re just looking down.
It’s with conclusions
of using time good
that we will find out
what that we should.

That Special Joy

Those days of Christmas
from so long ago
are now that special
joy that I know.
All those emotions
of Christmastimes flair
help me to now days
see joy in the air.
That special joy that
Christmas shows true
can help you find then
that light within you.
Sometimes a memory,
sometimes a thought
will make you saddened
a little a lot.
Yet,  if you look now
for that special joy
you might just find you
some good to enjoy.
A snowflake from Heaven
or a glistening tree
which that special joy
was given for free.
A little child smiling
or a pet dog or cat
could break that wall
of the sadness you’re at.
You might then surely
see goodness deploy
as you find God through
that special joy.

Looks Of The Clouds

There up above me
I saw in the sky
clouds floating peacefully
as they went by.
They seemed to transform
into so many things.
The looks of the clouds
were fast running streams.
They formed some places
as mountains so high
there up above me
I saw in the sky.
I watched for a while
and saw them transform
into what looked like
a baby newborn.
The looks of the clouds
can sometimes become
that of a band
with a big old bass drum..
The scene’s always changing
as time moves along
with the looks of the clouds
until they are gone.

Moonlight’s Dance

As nighttime unveils
the stars in the sky
the moonlight displays
its dance by and by.
The moonlight’s dance
is found in the stars
also with sometimes
Venus and Mars.
The moon creates sights
as shadows of trees
sometimes highlighted
with oceans and seas.
Sometimes its dancing
is not seen so large
because of some clouds
that seem to take charge,
but moonlight’s dance
is still there to view
when all the clouds
allow it on through.

Looking Slow

Not looking quickly
at fast moving times
can find you standing
on many land mines.
If looking slowly
is your only view
then you might need one
much better than you.
Let someone help you
in fast moving styles
and you might find you’re
much better the miles.
Of course looking slowly
is sometimes the way,
for you might better
see what’s on display.
But if you find fast times
that you do not know,
let Jesus help you
when you’re looking slow.

Rippling Stream

A memorized moment
that drifts in my dream
is sometimes wondrous
as a rippling stream.
With waters flowing
in dream towns delight
the rippling streams are
found within sight.
Scenes found with colors
of fall colored minds
are then so rippling
as stream found designs.
Clear waters flowing
as a memorized view
then finds the rivers
as Heaven’s of blue.
With every flavor
of a momentous dream
there are the chances
for a rippling stream.

for Oct 19,  2014

With just a moment
a life can be rearranged
for something better.

As seasons will change
the days look differently
with similar views.

Yes is mistaken
when no is the true meaning
while many will lie.

Looks of a flower
will change with each days weather
as minutes evolve.

Without a heartbeat
true love cannot assemble
into two heartbeats

Beyond what we see
are our inner emotions
filling up the void.

Yesterdays mistakes
will become todays lessons
if we’ll allow them.

Forgetting yourself
will leave you at lonely street
with others around.

Pointing at others
makes others aware of you
such as pointing back.

Living within fear
will maybe just hold you back
and prevent your growth.

Leftover heartaches
can become too much baggage
if you allow it.

Someone that’s smiling
can be as a battery
charging other smiles.

Senseless gossiping
often ends in much despair
with fact and fiction.

Hardwired thinking
finds some imagination
needing perception.

Too large an ego
will show you only sadness
as life moves along.

Convenience of time
brings many down troubled roads
that they should not go.

Last place can be first
when last is the beginning
of another path.

Closing your mind up
to the things that you can’t see
might still show some ghost.

The river of time
flows as a journey through life
with unknown numbers.

Leftover breezes
hold the format of the wind
in smaller detail.

A choice that we make
becomes a pattern in time
that we can rethink.

When watching the clouds
you might see a formation
that looks familiar.
