I Don’t Mind The Snow


Hello my friends

How was your New Years?  I hope you had a happy and
safe one.  The year 2015 is now upon us and I find myself
still signing stuff 2014 and having to go back and change
it as I did last year when it turned 2014 LOL.  In a month
or so I’ll finally get used to typing 2015,  but until then my
mind will still cause me to revert to 2014 and have to go
back and correct it hehehe.  So did you make any type of
New Years resolutions?  The only one I ever make is to
try and do better this year.  It’s about the only one that
I’m fairly sure that I can keep LOL.  It snowed quite a bit
last night.  This morning Benny and Milo needed to go out
and potty and I could almost read the words in Milo’s face
when he looked outside at the steps and all LOL.  Sort of
like,  “No not again”.  Benny was out the door and ready
to play.  As soon as Milo got down the steps and did his
duty,  he was back clambering up the steps to get back
inside,  but Benny wanted to play in it,  because he loves
snow.  I had to keep calling his name and he finally gave
in and came back inside.  I knew the snowplow would soon
be here and I didn’t want Benny getting plowed under :).
Our neighbor Mark once again came over and shoveled
our steps and around our car.  I never asked him to do it.
I have managed since 2007,  but I guess he can see that
my health isn’t getting any better and he’s just trying to
be nice.  He came over yesterday evening and asked me
to take him to town so he could buy some more kerosene
for his heater,  so I donned my clothes and we headed
out.  He wanted to stop at the grocery store so to buy
them a few groceries while we were in town so we did.
Their car is leaking radiator fluid and isn’t running too
well either.  He wanted to stop at Burger King and get
him and his better half a burger and said for me to get
Judy and I something,  so I got us 2 Big Kings and some
onion rings.  Anyways,  Mark is a nice guy.  I hope him
and Charlene hang around longer than all of our previous
neighbors.  I do still miss Brian my fishing buddy.  Him
and his wife and boy were our neighbors for a year or
so.  I also miss our other neighbor Carol and her boys.
We’ve had some nice neighbors.  Paul and his wife lived
behind us and were here before we moved up and they
moved away a couple of years ago.  We’re sort of out
in the boonies,  but I like it for the scenery and ability
to be able to play my conga drums without bothering
anybody hehehe.  I asked all my neighbors if I was
too loud and they said they couldn’t hear the conga
drums,  but a few of my neighbors have come over
to watch and listen to me play a few times :).  OK, So
what else is there to talk about?  It’s sort of quiet
around here today.  Judy didn’t have to go over her
sisters house today being her sister stayed home
due to the nasty weather conditions.  So,  we’re all
here today.  I think Benny and Milo are a little bit
confused though.  Hehehe Friday when we went into
town to pay the light bill,  we took Benny and Milo
with us.  The funny thing was that when I opened
the front door and said come on boys.  Benny ran
down the steps and headed for the field and turned
around to wait for me LOL.  I said,  Benny we’re
not going for a walk in the field today, we’re going
for a ride and I opened up the back door.  He came
a running and hopped right in.  Milo came outside
with Judy and hopped in and then Judy and I got in
and we were off to town.  I will have to take the
boys out for a walk soon.  I haven’t lately due to
being under the weather,  but aside from my many
allergies, arthritis, etc,  I’m feeling a little better.
Life goes on hehehe.  I just poked my head out
and it’s 21 F degrees and sleeting now.  Yep,  it’s
a nasty day.  I don’t mind the snow,  but the sleet
and freezing rain I can do without.  Yep,  it’s days
like today that I’m glad to be retired with nowhere
that we have to be.  I’m glad that I don’t have to
worry about Judy being on the road this evening.
I can tell by the lack of traffic on the road that
the road must be bad.  It’s not like we get tons of
traffic being we live on the county road,  but we
do have a few logging trucks and cars that drive.
Although,  I haven’t heard a snowplow in a good
while,  which could also mean,  that the roads are
slick.  Maybe they’ll come and sand the roads in
a bit if they haven’t already done so on their last
pass.  None the less,  I checked our mail yesterday
and it don’t run today,  so there’s no need for me
to have to walk out there thank God LOL.  It looks
like 2015 is slowly making footprints in the days.
We shall see where the footsteps lead to.  Judy
I and the boys will just keep on keeping on as the
pages turn in time.  God has continued to watch
over us as He has from the beginning.  We are
finding blessings with each corner that we turn.
Our little homestead has many miracles found
within it.  I feel blessed to be able to share my life
with Judy and the boys.  Yet,  there are times that
I let self pity to live and breathe just as many of
you might also.  It’s those times that I begin my
prayers even more so and let God show me the
many blessings that I have.  Of course I have
health issues and financial stress,  but I am able
to see the beauty of winters snow and autumns
fall colors along with all that is in between such
as flowers that bloom.  I’m able to watch all the
clouds form paintings in the sky.  Most of all I am
able to share this with Judy and our boys.  Thank
You God for all that You have done and will do.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be taking a lil
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 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.  It
looks like I found a title about half way down :).
It might turn out silly,  but I haven’t a clue at
this point hehehe.  So here goes.

I Don’t Mind The Snow

With wintertime’s perception
and the plows that come and go
I find I hate the sleet and ice,
but I don’t mind the snow.
The season has much beauty
with its white snow on the ground
and trees that glitter brightly
when sunlight shines all around.
No,  I don’t mind the snow
for it has that wondrous view,
that with the snowflakes falling
makes the days so fresh and new.
Then as winters highways
are filled with wondrous scenes
the snow becomes a painting
that is filled with many dreams.
The winters days come shining
as December comes and goes
and my heart finds the magic
for I don’t mind the snow.
The snow gives its surroundings
the glimmers Heaven sent.
No,  I don’t mind the snow
for it has a great accent.
It paints the days around me
with its snow white scenery.
No,  I don’t mind the snow,
because it give so much to see.

Ok,  I know many of you won’t like the poem.  Oh well!
That’s life as a poet hehehe.  Judy and the boys are in
here with me.  Benny and Milo are lying right behind me.
I’m trying not to roll over them hehehe.  Actually Benny
is to my left and almost behind me with his head resting
on a leg/wheel of my chair LOL.  I guess they’re a little
confused,  because mom’s still here hehehe.  They had
gotten used to her leaving every Sunday.  I’m glad she
stayed home.  Those roads have gotta be nasty.  Yes
they are drivable,  but still dangerous.  Our car still has
Texas tires on it and it don’t do well on ice and snow.
One day when we have some money we will have to at
least buy two winter tires for the front or the car.  They
cost more than they did for our little Mazda hehehehe.
Of course our Mazda only had 13 inch wheels and this
one has 16 inch wheels.  Quite a difference in size and
price.  So,  I guess I need to be telling you what  tell
you almost every week.  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yep, I wrote 10 more poems with 1 of them being
sort of Christmassy.  Also once again I wrote 22 haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you find
1 or 2 of either or both that you like.  I guess now it’s
time for me to be searching for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most awesome
New Year and a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Ok,  so where are
ya hiding you little whippersnapper?  I see ya you
little varmint.  Will you ever freaken learn that I do
ever so often use my nose drops LOL?  Aside from
you not being completely hidden,  I do have allergies
ya know LOL.  Will you ever learn????????????
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

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

Starlight Moon

Nights of white
with light in tune
are found on snow
a starlight moon.
Scenes are found
so wondrously
the sights and sounds
that my eyes see.
A starlight moon
reflects upon
the snow at night
until it’s dawn.
With glows bestowed
upon the ground
a starlight moon
is surely found.
Yet when morning
comes to be
a starlight moon
is history.

Decembers Sun

A new day’s dawned
with change of date
as Decembers sun
finds seasonal fate.
January’s morning
comes into view
as Decembers sun
says how do you do.
The meetings of time
connect to and fro
as Decembers sun
sees January snow.
The minutes tick onwards
as each day is found
when Decembers sun
waits time going around.
For as December
finds it is the past
January displays
its own type contrast.
So as the moments
of Decembers sun
fade from the pages
to now what is done,
the stories remembered
from its own display
are still filled with magic
from that Christmas Day.

A Brand New Year

With each day
the shadows show
a brand new year
will soon bestow.
The minutes ticking
a brand new year
comes into view.
While ones dream
of better lives
a brand new year
gives hope that thrives.
Our yesterdays
only find
a brand new year
with change of time.
Many choices
need sincere
to make much better
a brand new year.

Looking Forwards

Throughout our ventures
so many will find
seasonal pathways
that stay on their mind.
While looking forwards
those passed days return
as all the memories
that time will not burn.
Sometimes acceptance
of shadows we cast
makes it much easier
for you to move passed.
While looking forwards
to futures display
the passed will still live on
as its special day.
Yet some acceptance
and forgiveness too
can make looking forwards
a much better view.

Tomorrow’s Sunshine

With rays of light
just shining through
tomorrow’s sunshine
might then too.
Yet some storm clouds
might be found
hiding sunshine
all around.
Tomorrow’s sunshine
might still show
even with
the chance of snow.
Behind the clouds
of fluffy white
tomorrow’s sunshine
is in sight.
For it still shines
its own way
tomorrow’s sunshine
day to day.

Shining glowing
in the night
eyes of a cat
seem very bright.
Found just stalking
there and to
eyes in view.
Sometimes purring
eyes are shining
bright to see.
Then as nighttime
fades away
all that’s seen
is light of day.
That cat meowing
in the night
fades from sight.

The Healing Thoughts

Finding some peaceful
in moments of pain
is sometimes hard for
ones to attain.
The healing thoughts
from Lord God above
can give you peaceful
filled full of love.
When torments gathered
at your door of time
seek the healing thoughts
from Lord God Divine.
Let not your worries
to leave you despair.
Find the healing thoughts
through God’s love and care.
Finding some peaceful
needs you now to pray,
then the healing thoughts
will take you away.
Yes many moments
will still find you pains,
but the healing thoughts
will calm hurricanes.
Maybe not your viewpoint,
but you will soon see
the healing thoughts will
change what will be.
Sometimes some bad times
need to be found
for the healing thoughts
to find common ground.

Frosted Windows

Winters coldness
brings to me
frosted windows
that I see.
Scenes as crystals
in my sight
frosted windows
scattered light.
Through the windows
that I view
frosted windows
are askew.
Scenes transposing
how they are
frosted windows
can’t see far.
all the time
frosted windows
change sunshine.

Soon The Snow

January’s sunshine
displays great delights.
Mesmerizing snowfall
into the nights.
Looking outside now
I can see clearly
snow from December
that fell down so dearly.
Soon the snow will fall
much deeper yet
and make the day end
with a wondrous sunset.
Soon many snowflakes
will fall from the sky
and with winters wind then
learn how to fly.
Soon the snow will
begin its own flight
throughout the daytime
and into the night.

Open Your Mind And Dream

Let lose of your thinking
and dream of delight.
Think about the things
that could be in sight.
Open your mind and dream
of the things you can’t see
and let yourself to find then
what really could be.
Don’t let your dreams to die
letting nightmares take over.
Open your mind and dream
of a field full of clover.
Dream of a passion sky
with clouds all fluffy white.
Open your mind and dream
of a magical sight.
Don’t forget to dream
of some wonderful days
when maybe right now
is just but a haze.
Yet don’t lose reality,
for truth needs be found,
but open your mind and dream
of a smile not a frown.
For maybe one day
that dream will come true
on a day that you’re ready
for it within you.

for Jan 3,  2015

It’s a brand new day
with chances found within it
that need us to take.

Never finds someone
in the midst of ever,
so do not lose hope.

Passion is a place
deep within a true heartbeat
that shows emotions.

Losing direction
can get you where you’re going
but not as quickly.

Wintertime’s snowflakes
become the only views seen
as time moves along.

Searching for springtime
might seem as just a glimmer
of your remembrance.

As hours pass by
each second presents doorways
for choices to make.

When we’re with sadness
a smile can be found inside
from times long ago.

Each cloud that floats by
shares a story of itself
written in the sky.

Seen from faraway
our planet looks so tiny
as does those we see.

We’re never alone,
for even in seclusion
Jesus is still there.

Making an entrance
could expose your weaknesses
as you stumble in.

Life is just a thought
that God has given us all
that became much more.

Winning and losing
is just a viewpoint we see,
for which is better.

The gleaming sunshine
is hidden behind the clouds
as winter proceeds.

Believing in not
gives you only emptiness
found deep inside.

The cold of winter
brings chills to the days ahead
with flavors of snow.

Learning from mistakes
often makes us much stronger,
but sometimes does not.

Hearing the wind blow
awakens many seasons
deep inside the mind.

While truth is better,
many will overkill it
saying what is wrong.

A minute in time
gives us all a chance to change
with every second.

Beyond yesterday
is the doorway to today
that we need to shine.
