ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
and
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

Of course I know, there are tons of you elsewhere on the planet
that do not celebrate this day. If you are curious, It’s independence
day here in the USA. Anyways, I doubt I’ll see many fireworks up
here. They are outlawed. You have to have a license to shoot them
off. At least that’s what I’m told. No matter, I never was much into
the fireworks thing. Shooting them off that is hehe. Love to watch.
Maybe we’ll see some in the skyline towards Houlton being I think
they are shooting them off this evening or maybe it was last night.
Heck, I haven’t a clue LOL. I’m getting some use out of my water
cooled fan. It’s not an air conditioner, but it’s the next best thing 🙂
The weather up this way is slipping into the middle to upper 80’s F,
but may not stay there but only a week or so. Nights of course are
in the 60’s which is nice when in fact it gets down to the 60’s. Most
times it doesn’t get to the maximum low until around 4 or 5 in the
morning hehehe. It looks like it might rain a tad this evening, but
nothing in a grand scale. It shouldn’t thwart ones ability to shoot
off their fireworks, too much hehehe. I hope your 4th of July is a
good one. I will be just doing as always LOL, sitting here at home
goofing on my PC and watching some TV programs with Judy :).
I’m pretty sure that the restaurant will be busy today and keeping
Judy busy cooking. She’ll probably be worn out when she finally
gets home from work. It’s a bummer that she has to work on the
holidays, but that’s a draw back to working in a restaurant or
diner. People still wanna eat dad gum it hehehe. Well onwards
to yet another topic. I haven’t been fishing again, but I’m sure
that Brian and me will go again soon. Firstly, I want to practice
casting with this rod and reel. Other than when Brian and me
went fishing, it’s been since around 1974 or 75 since I had been
fishing. Me and my PawPaw used to fish all the time, before
I graduated high school and got married. It’s nice to be able to
get back to fishing and just enjoying nature. of course I always
enjoy nature being I love photography and always ready to take
a picture hehehe. I at all times have my camera ready for a lil
venture of photography. I thank God for all my abilities with
music, poetry and photography. I know that I have many other
abilities that I am not so aware of as I am sure you have many
abilities that you might not be aware also. We many times will
be found using our abilities every day and not even be aware of
it. Being a caretaker or a friend to someone that is in need of
someone to talk to! That is a gift. There are countless gifts
that we many times do not see or use. Some may lay dormant
until we find out we have them. Let God help you to find your
gifts. Often it just means by loving and caring. Lend someone
your opened arms when they need a hug. It might make your
day much brighter. Don’t let the past to pull you away from
life. Yes things might not go well, but you cannot hole up in
your little shell of fear and expect good things to happen. Some
risks are needed. Yet, don’t be stupid and do what you know
without a shadow of a doubt is not right or not going to work out
well. Use good judgment. But don’t judge ones simply by their
appearance. What’s seen on the outside, might not be what’s
within. If you were to see me in your day to day life and not
know me, you might shy away from me, because of my looks.
The pages of a person may be different than what’s found
on the cover of the book. Let God be your guide. Jesus went
to the sinners to help them, because the others needed not a
guide. He sought out the lost sheep and brought them back
to the flock. Well, I reckon I have rattled once again hehe!
I guess it’s time for me to be taking my little venture back
through all I’ve written in my points of recollection 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
that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I found
a good title not to awful far back in my rambling hehehehe.
Now let’s see what if anything at all I can do with it!!!!!!
Here goes…….

Good Judgment

Choose directions
here to there
as you say
a daily prayer.
Use good judgment
in your mind
and then maybe
good you’ll find.
Chances taken
might need be
sometimes for a
way to see.
Don’t let others
cloud your view
and deter from
what that’s true.
Use good judgment
in detail
seeking Heaven
not for Hell.
Don’t let vision
be misled.
Let your eyesight
be well fed.
Let this moment
that you see
be the best
that it can be.

Ok, I hope you understood that poem LOL! Also I hope my
rambling did not lose ya. My hip is hurting something awful,
so I will have to find an ending for this pretty quick. Darned
old arthritis!!! I fractured my hip our first year up here with a
slip on the ice and it hurts 24-7. Oh well, the price of getting
old LOL. I guess getting old is better than the alternative huh.
Hehehe but then in Heaven I won’t be hurting. So what do I
have to say about that, AHEM hehehehe,,,,Come on Heaven!
Yeppers, I fear not death, for I know I will have a body with
no ailments, but until then, my story is not up LOL. I think
God has a few more journals, poems and haikus for me to
write hehe. Yep I reckon He has many other things planned
for me. Time will tell. So I guess it’s about time for me to
be searching for ye ole off switch, but before I do that hehe
I need to tell you what I tell you every single week LOL and
that is, I wrote some more poems and haikus. Two of the
poems are Christmas poems. I’ll let you figure out which 2.
Ok, so I will once again wish you a most joyful 4th of July.
Have a wonderful week and always remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. Now to find that confounded off switch.
Found it hanging on the swinging louvers of the evaporative
Air cooled fan hehehe. Gotcha!!! See ya CLICK zzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haikus
10 and 22 hehehehe 😉

Unknowingly Choose

More than a moment
a minute might seem
as it is feeling
just like a dream.
Many times seconds
will in a way
seem as the biggest
part of the day.
Our own perceptions
morning to night
may in a way
be filled up with fright.
More times our journeys
daylight to dark
are just the fractions
we chose to embark.
We might unknowingly
choose ways to go
more than a moment
in our to and fro.

Times Dusty Trails

Summers reflecting
off of the past
with all the echoes
of certain contrast.
Summer is showing
many a view
gathered beginning
morning to noon.
Then on to evening
summertime shows
how then by nightfall
where all it goes.
Summers perception
is what we find
as it dispenses it
into our mind.
Found in the summer
are times dusty trails
seeming as oceans
of many details.

Dreaming Shoes

Winter is coming
soon I can tell
for I see segments
of its little trail.
Found in the middle
of summertime’s way
I see beginnings
of nows winter day.
Winter is coming
as I look on
within my journey
of night unto dawn.
I see the heartbeats
of Christmas design
found in the beginning
of dear wintertime.
Winter is coming
with fresh fallen snow
that will distinguish
all that I know.
Soon will be Christmas
in wintertime’s views
as I trudge onwards
in my dreaming shoes.

Search Passed Sadness

Within the midst
of now you see
there might display
an A to Z.
Things of beauty
here to afar
that just elude you
wherever you are.
God gives many
things to enjoy
yet we so often
just find they annoy.
Within shadows
time is painted
some by us
a little tainted.
Find the blessings
God has true
each for ones like
me and you.
Search passed sadness
and see good
that is often
misunderstood.

That Wonderful Time

Found in the meadow
are things so divine
that I will often
wish they were mine.
Yet in the meadow
is timeless accord
that are the blessings
come from my Lord.
The sights and sounds
of all I view
seem to harmonize
here through and through.
Found in the distance
something is heard,
a quaint little tune
from a little song bird.
I with my passion
stay there in mind
as I remember
that wonderful time.

Peace In Your Mind

Onwards our visions
look hard to see
sometimes the minutes
given for free.
So often lifestyles
take all control
leaving us empty
with only a goal.
Don’t let your lifestyle
to seek for the wrong
for many segments
just do not belong.
Look to the choices
and see what that’s good
and not what might be
misunderstood.
Look now with onwards
as daily you find
new ways of living
with peace in your mind.

Summertime’s Scenes

See now selections
of summertime’s scenes
painted with Earthly
red, yellow, greens.
Look to the sky now
and see in each cloud
how that perception’s
surely endowed.
See every viewpoint
that you can find
with an unbridled
dreaming like mind.
Let yourself flow on
from season to hue
in the selections
that now are with you.
Search for the blessings
found deep within
the summertime’s scenes
of which that begin.

Always To See

I am now dreaming
of where I can go
when I am walking
in thens Christmas snow
Found in my footsteps
are every trace
within the white snow
of which I embrace.
Christmas beginnings
fluffy and white
seen as the seasons
each day and night.
I’m only dreaming
right now and today
while I am waiting
for Christmas display.
My dreams are living
as thoughts in my head
when then at nighttime
I lay down in bed.
I seek the visions
of reality
to be as Christmastime
always to see.

Chance After Chance

Some view Heaven
and Hell as not true,
but in the end
they’ll get a view.
It’s not our judgment
that will discern,
but all the lessons
of turn after turn.
I can’t imagine
a life without God
or without Heaven
to surely applaud.
I can remember
my life long ago
filled with much anger
and also much woe.
I was so lonely
for I chose a way
leading me sadly
through day after day.
Yet when I found
Lord Jesus inside,
I also found then
my eyes opened wide.
I found much hopeful
in futures expanse
that came from Heaven
of chance after chance.

Every Fragrance

Lingering fragrances
each day bestows
seem to make journeys
right into my nose.
Some causing sneezing
and some a good smell
lingering fragrances
seems to compel.
In every fragrance
is found but a frame
of such a moment
that has its own name.
Lingering thusly
a fragrance in time
makes its own journey
from its own design.
Some are short-winded
with their come and go
as they are first
right after the snow.
Yet other flowers
will come into play
with every fragrance
of their own display.

Haiku
for July 3, 2010

Looks are deceiving
as many are deception.
Look at their actions.

Foraging for life
is so often misconceived.
Try to understand.

Lessons are journeys
including many speed bumps
that may change your stride.

A winters flower
will bloom as it struggles hard
to stay above snow.

Many points in time
are but only weigh stations
from here unto there.

Sources of anger
might come from unforgiving
and not letting go.

Letters are written
as people try to explain
what lives in their hearts.

Our Earthly shadows
might leave the marks of restraint
when we are trying.

Answers are made up
by ones caught and in trouble
for doing intentions.

Dedication thrives
with the flowers of heartbeats
blooming with Jesus.

The painters canvas
makes ready for its journey
to here and afar.

Tomorrows essence
might be subsequently found
as only a dream.

Morning will arrive
with or without permission,
so just enjoy it.

Conclusion jumping
can leave you standing alone
with falsely accused.

A ship out at sea
leaves a trail within the waves
that vanish away.

Too much anything
finds you with times of trouble
without a balance.

Normal times people
don’t always act so normal
due to the moments.

God gives us answers
that are sometimes misconstrued
as timely unfair.

Midmorning sunshine
makes its imprints on the day
as the sun moves on.

Lives are evolving
as we each live together
no matter how far.

Looking for true love
might lead you into trouble.
Let God be your guide.

Significant sights
are the scenes of Gods blessings
within me and you.
