ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you are staying warm this winter.
We’re staying somewhat warm.  The temp
seems to not of made up its mind just yet.
Yeppers,  It was 8 F this morning and now
at near 4:30 it’s 19 F degrees. 
Tomorrow‘s
high is supposed to be much the same as is
our temperature for tonight,  so that means
the water will continue dribbling in the spare
room to keep the water from freezing.  Our
light bill is rather high due to that as well
as us using electric heaters to keep us warm
and leaving the furnace thermostat set as 55
just to make going into the kitchen to cook
doesn’t freeze us.  We’re trying to cut down
on our use of heating oil being that it cost
so much nowadays and it’s getting hard to
come by also.  We’ll survive,  but we feel
very sad for ones that are in worse shape
than us.  All we can do is pray for those
that are less fortunate than us.  Life can
always be worse,  so be thankful for the
blessings that you receive.  So,  what is
going on around this place?  Well Judy
and I bought us a ham to have for our
Christmas dinner.  We figured we better
get it early,  because they may soon be
sold out LOL.  I plan on going out one
day when it’s snowing and do a little bit
of Christmas light picture taking.  If I’m
lucky,  Judy will drive.  If not then I will
and I will stop the car every so often if
there’s nobody behind me and take some
pictures of the houses all lit up that are
on our road to town.  I might end up
just going on a day that it has snowed
though LOL,  None the less,  I will try
to get some good pictures.  Judy just
told me that the other day when she
drove to Monticello to help her sister,
she said she saw some awesome lights,
so she said she’ll drive when we find a
good day to go picture taking and take
me so that I can take pictures.  That
sounds great to me.  I have run out of
Christmas light pictures to use for my
poetry pictures LOL.  I enjoy doing
poetry pictures.  I’m not so into doing
then for books now,  being I already
have 14 books for sell on Amazon 🙂
If I ever get a whim,  I might publish a
few more in paperbacks,  but I am in
no hurry.  They’re not selling all that
well LOL.  Maybe when I am dead
and gone,  they will start selling LOL.
Isn’t that how it works?  No matter,
Judy was the one that wanted me to
publish my poetry pictures in a book.
We weren’t thinking of making money
from them,  but it would most surely
be freaking nice,  being SS doesn’t
pay all that much.  We had a visit
from our neighbor Bernard today 🙂
He brought us some food. We didn’t
need it,  but he likes to help us out
when he can.  If they move,  we will
surely miss them and the probability
is pretty good,  being we never seem
to keep neighbors long for some odd
reason.  Anyways,  He helps me when
I am unable to snow blow or mow the
lawn,  being he knows that my health
is not all that great at times.  I do get
out and do it,  when I am able to.  I
do not like having to depend on him
or anyone else to do my chores.  So,
life continues on at the Pearce’s Place.
Rocky is doing well.  He’s still driving
us crazy LOL.  He cannot ever make
up his mind of if he wants a treat or
needs to go outside to go potty.  He is
not that bright.  OK I will come right
out it say it,  He’s stupid LOL, but we
love the little boy.  He’s been with us
for 7 years now.  Right now he’s in his
doggy bed right beside me sleeping 🙂
I’ve been wandering around the net
exploring while I’ve been writing this,
so I have killed a few hours hehehe.
It’s now near 6:30 PM and the temp is
16 F degrees.  I reckon I need to get
this done so that Judy and I can see
what’s on TV for us to watch.  It’s as
dark as dark can be right now being
I see the moon nowhere.  It must be
hidden behind a few clouds.  There’s
not much else to tell ya.  God is still
watching over us as are many angels
and kindly spirits.  We feel blessed as
we look at life and see how we have
managed through many troubles and
are still moving forward.  Thank You
God for all that You have done for
us and all that we are sure that You
will do.  I ask for You to watch over
all of our friends and family as well
as the ones that we know not of and
protect them.  Thank You Lord for
never leaving us in darkness.  AMEN.
Now I do believe it’s time for me to
be reading back over all that I have
written here to see if I can find me 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 little place
of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  Well
I found a little phrase that I think
will work and it’s just but a few lines
 back.  I just checked I saw where I
had sort of used it,  but not in the
same sense,  So here goes…

In Darkness

Scenes within night
might form a fear
as light is devoid
and worry is near.
Darkness can create
many forms of life
some as a dream
and some as strife.
Find in darkness
a better sight to see
that is within you
and given for free.
Blessings from God
reside as a place
that can help you
find a smiling face.
Let time discover
love as hearts rest
filled with blessings
found in darkness.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope the poem
made ya smile.  I know it’s not that
great of a poem,  but it’s what I came
up with at the moment.  I’m trying to
get this journal done,  so that I can get
this thing email and uploaded hehehe.
My sister Peggy had a birthday last week
and I did her a little poetry picture for
her birthday.  I might share the poem
along with the others.  So that’s about
all I have for ya other than what I tell
you every week and that is,  I wrote a
few more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
10 more poems with 7 of them being a
slight Christmassy 🙂   I also wrote once
again 22 haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  Of course my poem to Peggy
will make 11 poems 🙂  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like.  Now I do believe it’s time for me
to start searching for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you all
a truly blessing filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Okey
dokey now,  where can that ornery off
switch be attempting to hide this time?
LOL I have one and only one D cell
battery sitting in front of me and that
silly switch thought it was a good place
to hide Hahaha.  Nope,  not good at all.
I can see over the battery ya silly thing.
Gotcha  See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Rocky
and spirits of Benny and Milo Pearce.

Across and Beyond

Searching the fields
of wintertime white
you might perceive
a Christmassy sight.
 It might interweave
a season’s perception
of a moment in time
in a scenic direction.
Life as of artwork
with a magical view
across and beyond
to here thereunto.
You may think it is
but only a dream
that lives as a time
of a wintery scene.
Yet it might display
a Christmassy song
sung in the breeze
across and beyond.

Holiday Minds

Pictures are taken
colorful shows
some so magical
Christmas bestows.
Scenic emotions
created in style
as holiday minds
may reconcile.
Finding the love
that was hid away
lost within anger
of a passing day.
Let Christmastime
to open the door
allowing heartbeats
of moments before.
Remembering life
and smiling faces
finding forgiveness
within God’s basis.
Look for the love
found in designs
living as Christmas
in holiday minds.

Kin To Me
(Peggy’s poem)

This December day
on the 6th of time
my loving sister
is a birthday mind.
Born so long ago
as she and I met
with I 4 years later
I shall never forget.
We weren’t so close
a sister and brother,
but we most surely
loved one another.
I’m thankful years
we had in the past
as they’re now only
a shadow that cast.
Yet now and today
I feel closer to you
as the years passed
from old to anew.
I wish for you life
fulfilled with cheer
my loving kin to me
my sister so dear.

Snowy Night

Wintertime’s sights
of snowfall appear
showing the life of
a season of year.
In a snowy night
there might just be
sights displaying
of a distant tree.
You may perceive
some faces within
snowflakes falling
times transcend.
Deep in the night
the darkness finds
flakes of winter
in Christmas minds.
It might be a scene
of a glorious white
a Christmas dream
in a snowy night.

Tracks to Christmas

Many times doorways
may look just like trails
as seasons of pathways
within timeless details.
Train tracks may seem
as our ageless memories
while our perceptions
are like oceans and seas.
Flowing as a heartbeat
or as a river in time
the tracks to Christmas
might live in our mind.
Portrayed as a picture
that moments impart
the tracks to Christmas
shall never depart.
For if our memories
don’t just fade away
the tracks to Christmas
will be here to stay.

River of Minds

Coldness of journeys
time finds a way
to discover memoirs
written in a day.
Journals of minutes
might seem as ice
flowing as a river
that seasons entice.
Lose the conformity
of an anger filled life
and don’t let time
to fill up with strife.
Look for the light
at the end of pain
and then see clearly
some good to attain.
Seek beyond trees
of hateful designs
and locate peaceful
in a river of minds.

Images Transpire

Windows of illusions
may become real
as seasons of scenes
upon a windowsill.
So many snowflakes
of wintertime come
and land all around
like a heartfelt sun.
Glowing so brightly
time comes to be
as images transpire
becoming history.
Christmastime’s life
becomes a story
as ages are written
about God’s glory.
Thriving as breaths
breathed in deep
seeming as dreams
found within sleep.
Christmastime finds
a time and place
to remind of peace
and a smiling face.
We must remember
the very reason
for the time of day
and of the season.
Our life is a journey
and not just desire,
for God is the truth
as images transpire.

Yearning For Peace

Living as a train track
a mind is a path
created by journeys
and shadows we cast.
Life can be fantasy,
life can be dreams
yearning for peace
in wintertime scenes.
Thriving life’s wishful
entices the times
while ones dream of
some snowy designs.
Hidden train tracks
amidst white snow
become as a dream
that life does bestow.
Pictured with photos
of life’s memory
time is like artwork
for the future to see.
Pictures remember
the views of a time
good recollections
of a face and design.
It may be a moment
or a scenic song
of a time and place
that’s now long gone.
Christmassy dreams
in winter’s release
open our mindsets
yearning for peace.

Santa Claus Hill

Finding the feelings
of Christmas desire
often needs help of
a winter warm fire.
Along with the time
is a Christmas tree
to shine so bright
for others to see.
The Christmas glow
needs you and I
to shine and share
as time goes by.
On Santa Claus hill
trees stand true
to soon find a home
with me and you.
To share the spirit
of Christmastime
they wait each day
for us to find.
Yet the very spirit
trees don’t fulfill
for it is more than
Santa Claus Hill.

Wisdom of Time

Living out lessons
learned from pain
often teaches better
thoughts to attain.
Time can be rough
as lessons hold true
giving us wisdom
of what not to do.
So many bestow
the roads of life
continuing anger
and living in strife.
Learn to discover
lessons in stride
and don’t lose them,
let wisdom reside.
Keep the memories
of lessons design
and learn to use
the wisdom of time.

Clouds of Dreams

Harnessing thoughts
of a seasonal place
can become stages
of a dreamer’s face.
Leaving the misery
down on the ground
as clouds of dreams
are floating around.
Let loose the sorrow
and lessen the pain
while letting clouds
to give you a gain.
Allow the raindrops
to wash over you
and display a better
moment to view.
The clouds may be
but only a page
written within time
to give us a stage.
Providing rainbows
to flow as streams
coming from above
as clouds of dreams.

Haiku
for Dec 10,  2022

Searching for the truth
you might find a few pages
of lies in a book.

Seasons of memoirs
may be written in our minds
that help us to smile.

Living in a dream
you might find a few nightmares
hidden deep within.

Our trials and errors
are the tools that help us grow,
but some never learn.

Life is an ocean
with many waves we can see
with heartbeats below.

Skies of illusion
often create many views
that may confuse us.

Leaving emotions
in the midst of a storm cloud
you might find regret.

When chasing a dream
you might be surprised if caught
that it’s a nightmare.

Seeking a doorway
that you know nothing about
might lead to trouble.

Stages of heartbreak
are often filled with anger
and then some sadness.

Time is a keeper
of all of our memories
that become shadows.

The fire of a heart
that burns without love within
might not find true love.

Needles in haystacks
are often our views of quests
that we think too hard.

Traveling down roads
we might hit a few speed bumps
 that are much needed.

Trying out new things
may often show our limits
on what we can do.

When driving forward
don’t look too much at what’s passed
or you might just crash.

Tree limbs within time
can often sway in a breeze
creating much noise.

Gazing at the sky
you might see some clouds pass by
that remind of life.

Struggling for your steps
you might need to slow your speed
and let others pass.

Years of emotions
can become forms of echoes
heard within our minds.

Flavors of ice cream
are like lifestyles of many
and choices of things.

Pages of a book
might not have any numbers,
but still be numbered.
