ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a fairly nice passed week.
The weather hasn’t been all that bad.
The temp has been staying in the 60’s
and 70’s,  but this week there might
be a couple of days in the low 80’s.
Thankfully that will soon change to
most days being in the 60’s and 70’s
as summer bids farewell.  Then the
temperatures will surely begin their
down hill fall to 50, 40, 30, 20 etc.
Then we will be seeing signs of the
first snowflakes of the season to fall
from the sky.  It’s so beautiful to
see as it decorates the landscapes 🙂
Yep,  I do love winter.  Though I
hate the price of heating our house
with heating oil,  but ya do what ya
gotta do.  Every place has drawbacks.
I would get tired of only seeing one
season or just mild changes and I’d
totally miss the snow.  My old body
cannot handle hot weather,  so this
is home.  I finally got my 8th book
published and it is in paperback
and Kindle Edition.  I had a heck
of a time getting it published LOL.
It seems Amazon was having a bad
day and they were messing up just
a tad hahaha.  Oh well,  it all got
done.  Anyways,  next topic.  Judy
had to go the doctor Thursday of
last week because the left side of
her mouth was hurting.  It seems
she has a few molars needing to
be pulled.  We’ve set her up for a
dentist appointment next month
early.  The doctor gave her some
meds to help to calm the infection.
My head is doing a lot better.  It
looks as though the shingles are
just about nullified.  The doctor
gave me some pills to help with
that and I have an appointment
next month to get the vaccination
for shingles to lessen the chance
of me getting them again,  but
I’m sure it won’t guaranty I wont
get them,  but at least it will make
it a lesser chance of getting them.
So what else is going on around
The Pearce’s Place?  Hmm,  well
the boys are doing well.  Since
we gave them a good shave,  they
have been more rambunctious
than ever LOL.  Even Benny’s
been playing like a pup again 🙂
LOL I just went to see where
they were,  being they weren’t in
here and I stuck my head around
the door to look in the kitchen
and Benny was standing there
with his little tail wagging madly.
Then Rocky poked his head in
from the porch and they both
came running LOL.  They were
on my heals all the way back to
the computer room hehehehe.
I gave them both a little treat 🙂
Now they’re lying in the floor
between Judy and I.  They’re
good boys 🙂 hehehe when they
wanna be.  We haven’t been
out and about much this week
due to finances,  but we might
have plans for my birthday.
Not sure what we will do,  but
we’ll do something.  I’ll turn 62
on the 31 of this month.  Yep,
getting older as time rolls on 🙂
I feel like I’m more like 91
turning 92 🙂  My old body has
had a few rushes in the aging
process if ya know what I mean.
So,  what else is there to tell you?
Well it looks as though God is
still watching over us as the days
and weeks pass us by.  There are
so many things that could of been
much worse,  but God intervened.
Thank You God for all that You
do and all that You will do as the
days pass us by.  Now I believe
it’s time for me to begin my little
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 call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may of found a decent
title just a few lines back and now
after checking I see that it has not
been used as of yet,  so used it
shall be 🙂  Wish me luck LOL.

What Else

With every footstep
and with every word
we travel onwards
sometimes so absurd.
We leave many scenes
as a destroyed phase
and then we’ll often
seek time to replace.
Not looking forwards
but often looking back
we will so often
get a little off track.
So what else is seen then
as we walk to and fro.
Time begins teaching
what we need to know.
God intervenes then
with more to discern
giving us the pages
we’re needing to turn.
So don’t let the moments
to be dust on the shelf
with you just wondering
and saying what else.

There ya go.  I don’t know what else
I could write LOL.  So I hope you at
least enjoyed my rambling even if you
didn’t like the poem hehehe.  Judy’s
behind me trying get the cheap HP
book to working right.  She’s deleting
a lot of stuff that is not needed.  LOL
the book only had 12 meg free.  She
is hoping to get all of the unneeded
stuff uninstalled.  Then if she is able
she wants to give it to her brother
that is in a nursing home so he can
maybe get on the internet and find
Facebook.  But actually we’re just
hoping he can just entertain himself,
so he’s not just lying in bed.  He’s
lost both of his legs due to diabetes
and gangrene.  His health is getting
worse.  Please keep him in your
prayers.  Now I believe 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,
I wrote 10 more poems, but none
are Christmas related,  I’m sorry.
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all
of the haiku lovers out there.  I
hope you can find 1 or 2 of either
of both that you like.  Now I do
believe it is time for me to begin
my search for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish
you all a most joyous weekend
or what’s left of it and a truly
blessed week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now
where is that ornery off switch
hiding or better yet trying to hide
this time?  Hmm,  looking high
and low,  right and left hehehe.
LOL I had no need to look in
all of those places because that
numskull is hiding right in front
of me right behind the lil statute
that our old neighbors gave me
that says I Think You’re Nice 🙂
I see ya you little varmint.  You
keep peeking out to see if I can
see you and that gives you away.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzz.

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

Waters Calm

Wading in waters
time seems so still
as what surrounds me
is a spinning wheel.
Life in its essence
is a page that’s found
scented with survival
as I look around.
Seeking for pleasure
of a gentle breeze
I walk with friends
in shallow seas.
Yet as a doorway
becomes my glance
the then waters calm
are songs to dance.
Friendship is found
in the waters of time
so often unnoticed
as an untimely mime.
You might see one
standing by your side
a friend to transcend
the moments applied.
Life is a pattern
that you need to be
a friend to a friend
in life’s changing sea.
For as the days pass
our life continues on
as true friends help us
to find waters calm.

Reflections Of Time

Looking through waters,
time frames we’ve seen
we might see reflections,
nightmares and dreams.
Scenes come to life
as the waters of time
displaying our memories
that live in our mind.
Life has many echoes
that we might try to hide
sometimes as a portion
of our life’s bumpy ride.
The scenes that time shows
may not be what we want
and be but only then
the bad times to haunt.
The reflections of time
can become as a show
displaying all the lessons
to help you to grow.
Change can be a journey
to become something good
as a moment in time
in blessings neighborhood.
The turning of pages
in the book of true style
can then deliver you
a heart warming smile.
It might seem as candy
as a time so divine
a page within a page
of reflections of time.

Distant Views

Seen in the distance
might be a phase,
time that has passed
into distant days.
A tractor might sit
just awaiting its time
or the clouds might sit
with beauty divine.
It could be a picture
or just memories
as those distant views
become deep seas.
You might remember
a hot summer’s day
that you went playing
or swimming away.
You might then recall
the best of the past
times walking gently
through the tall grass.
You might even find
a time you recall
bright colored leaves
displaying in fall.
Those distant views
that life gave free
may have come to life
for a moment to see.
Becoming an essence
of times daily news
found in a field
of your distant views.

Life In The Pink

Through our struggles
some days might seem
that of an ocean
or a rushing stream.
The waters envisioned
might become wild,
yet with a flower
can maybe turn mild.
The flower of life
as an ocean breeze
scented with textures
of life found at ease.
Yes life in the pink
can live within you
and when then in need
become as your view.
Seek for the treasures
of life in your mind
filled with memories
of a great point in time.
Let loose your sadness,
the way that you think
as you find a smile
with life in the pink.

Found At Peace

Travels of eyesight
dusk unto dawn
take us on journeys
our minds can live on.
Walking in a pasture
on a distant day
or riding a horse
times swish and sway.
The grass in a field
becomes as pure gold
as a time remembered
from young unto old.
Our eyesight displays
what that’s no more
and shows of the new
of which to explore.
Then found as peace
is a seasonal gain
when we look true
at the good to attain.
Often it’s hidden
within a field
sights that could be
the best to yield.
Allow your sight
to see a better day
while not only seeing
the sadness and gray.
Look for the beauty
and let sadness cease,
then for a moment
be found at peace.

The Small Things

The worries we have
might be so small,
but we’ve made them
to stand so tall.
The small problems
can become large
if we allow them
to daily take charge.
Time is a window
so many look through
seeking for dreams
to come into view.
We can change things
by the way we react
learning our lessons
and getting on track.
So many small things
can become great
if we always choose
to procrastinate.
Allow the beauty
that you never found
to become your sight,
in sky and ground.
Look now and see
all the wonderful scenes
found in the moments
within the small things.

Painted Flower

Many pictures
come in view
bringing scent
to me and you.
Some may seem
a little faint
as their only
painters paint,
but those flowers
still can be
the best in life
and best to see.
A painted flower
might display
the essence of
a wondrous day.

Winter’s Reflection

Winter recedes
to allow living spring,
but it’s remembered
as song that we sing.
Winter’s reflection
is that of a smile
throwing snow balls
as snowflakes compile.
Life is recorded
as a seasonal hue
planted in our minds
such a wonderful view.
God filled moments
on a heavenly quest
as winter’s reflection
displays the very best.
Blessings as winter
paints homes with snow
making them beautiful
a seasonal glow.
Some may not like it
as wintertime comes,
but then there are days
they’re out having fun.
Riding snowmobiles
through snowy trails
and building snowmen
with many details.
So take a breath now
and see the perfection
found in a moment of
winter’s reflection.

Within A Window

Within a moment
time is displaying
minutes and hours
many are playing.
Yet many times
in a window view
you might see life
of a different hue.
It might be a tree
or a solar sight
rocking in the day
and still at night.
You might even see
a fluffy design
clouds floating by
to live in your mind.
Time begins ticking
as life moves along
within a window
of dusk unto dawn.
Allow you heart
to find displayed
a moment of life
to not degrade.
Look at the sights
and find the style
the beauty of time
to give you a smile.
Find for a moment
a time with a glow
that comes alive
within a window.

Trails

A little walk
in distant days
displayed trails
just like a maze.
Winding through
to here and there
to then display
a breath of air.
Beauties of life
as it’s explored
the place I found
that I adored.
You might find
somewhere to go
with trails of time
in living flow.
You might find
your heart’s desire
in trails of life
in their entire.
Allow your feet
or mind to sail
to find you life
in wondrous trails.

Haiku
Aug 25,  2018

Beyond what we think
are things we might not believe
that exist in life.

Walking many trails
you might discover lifestyles
that bewilder you.

A flower’s own lifetime
begins and ends with seasons
of winter and spring.

Looking for a cloud
that is formed like memories
you might find some dreams.

Shadows of a tree
might seem so very creepy,
but they’re only limbs.

The moon glows brightly
as the sun’s own reflection
that lives in the night.

Lifestyles of a rose
are that of a connection
to the bumble bees.

Without some sunshine
many plants would wither away
leaving only death.

Tomorrows forecast
is an estimated guess
so don’t hold your breath.

Living in a dream,
you might wake up to changes
such as a nightmare.

Making like a weed
you can become one that’s plucked
because you’re trouble.

Need is confusion
as our wants become our needs
of which we don’t need.

The snow of winter
is a Christmas memory
that brings me a smile.

Sharing ones burdens
you can often create strength
stronger than burdens.

Without any rain
some plants have no chance to live,
but others will thrive.

Time in a bubble
is protected  from minutes,
but bubbles will bust.

Various changes
can become as good and bad,
for some are gambles.

Finding shooting stars
in the skylight late at night
some might not be stars.

A page within time
might hold many mysteries
we might one day see.

As God opens doors
He gives way for some chances
to go or stay put.

We are but a time
that so many might perceive
as never changing.

As we walk forwards
the past becomes memories
that we might regret.
