Dark Clouds of Emotions


Hello my friends

It’s another week gone by huh. Yeppers, and here I am
once again with more rambling. The weather up this way
has been rather nice, although it did rain a tad last night
and this morning. I put Benny out to do his duties and he
was soakin wet when I let him back in. I toweled him
off real good, but before that he went to Judy’s side of the
bed and jumped up and gave her a good licking hehehehe.
She said, ooooooh kisses and his paws are cold and wet.
I said I know, I’m looking for a towel to dry him off real
quick and he couldn’t wait to kiss ya good morning LOL.
Benny’s such a sweetie, but he’s a picky eater and thinks
he can choose what he will eat, LOL and that seems to
be working. Yet I’ve found ways of making him take his
medicine if he wants to be stubborn. I’ll mix it in his food
and even sometimes feed that portion to him by freaking
spoon. He’ll take his Angel Eyes medicine one way or
another hehehe. He loves to watch TV with us, but I do
believe he likes the commercials best LOL. Onto another
portion of my thoughts. Judy’s eldest daughter came down
with the kids Thursday and Rylee and Chance had a blast
playing with Benny and I could tell that Benny was also
having a blast playing with them. Indoors and outdoors
they romped around. Benny hated to see them go, but
they came back down yesterday/Saturday and they came
with their dad along with their mom this time. Tom had
not met Benny yet. Benny’s gradually meeting all of the
family up here. I’m hoping that my mom and sister can
make it up this summer and meet him and also so I can
see them again. I miss seeing my family and friends
from Texas ways and thereabouts in surrounding states.
We’re seeing a few signs of spring up here. Benny saw
his first butterfly and chased it all over the place hehe.
He also was busy focusing on blades of grass that he
had not seen since he has been up here. Yes of course
most of those blades were actually just freaking weeds.
Anyways, it’s 40F degrees right now at 2:30 PM and
the high is supposed to be around 47F degrees. I know
it’s not any spring that you would ever have thought
to see if you’re somewhere down south hehehe. but
it’s the way it is up here. Tonight’s supposed to drop
to around 34F degrees which isn’t all that bad hehehe,
but to answer your question, yes we are still having
to use our heaters LOL. We let Benny sleep up on
the bed with us. He usually ends up sleeping at the
end of the bed between Judy and I. He has barked
a few times now. Even this morning when I let him
back in the house from doing his duties, he was so
excited to see Judy, he barked a couple of times :).
Yes, Judy and I are still doing our FarmTown farms
in Facebook. All 14 of them hehehe. They give us
something to do late in the day after Benny has wore
us out and we have worn him out hehehe. There’s
not much news to report from up here at the Pearce’s
place. Nope, we live a pretty much peaceful life
up here as we watch the days pass by with artwork
of clouds that paint the skies. God gives us a lot
to look at and experience with the passing of time.
It’s when we close our minds to the beauty around
us that we do not see what God has given us. Open
your eyes up and your mind and look for the good
in the moments that God has given. Don’t let the
dark clouds of emotions to rain on the God given
beauty that is maybe right in front of your face.
Now, with that said, I guess it’s time for me to
begin my little venture back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find a good word or
phrase that might work for the title for today’s
brand new poem. So, it’s away I go to that little
bit of space of my recollection that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I have found a
good title. Now let’s see if I can form a few words
into the makings of a good poem using it LOL.
Here goes….

Dark Clouds of Emotions

Within our tomorrows
we might find our sorrows
filled as with oceans
of dark clouds of emotions.
Scenes of black and white
might seem as a fright
as billows of worries
come in with some flurries.
Within our yesterdays
we might be amazed
at the timeframes that passed
that we thought would last.
Dark clouds of emotion
only cause a commotion
if we allow minutes
of timeframes within it.
Let Jesus help you
to see passed your view
and find peaceful oceans
through dark clouds of emotions.
Life will then be
a good sight to see
as oceans transgressions
becomes many lessons.
For then what is viewed
won’t be misconstrued
as just but a pain,
but truly a gain.

Well I hope you were not bored to tears with all my
rambling hehehe. Also I hope the poem at least made
a little sense to ya. If it didn’t, Oh well hehehehehehe.
Judy has been playing with Benny in the living room
and I think they tuckered each other out LOL. Benny’s
panting a tad hehehe. He just got him a little drink of
water and headed off to rest. Judy’s on her computer
behind/beside me goofing around Facebook. Hmmmm
I wonder if there’s anything good on TV tonight hehe.
As I said before, there isn’t much new to tell ya about
that I have not already told ya about. We did get
a lot of pictures of the kids and Benny playing which
I might use a few in my stationery. So I reckon it’s
time for me to tell you what I tell you every week and
that is, I wrote some poems and haiku. Yeppers 10
more poems with 1 of them being a Christmas poem.
Also 22 more haiku to fill your minds up with hehehe.
Ok, so it’s time once again for me to begin my search
for that evasive off switch, but not before I wish you
a most joyful and God filled week. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now to find that off switch.
Found it hiding in that darned reflection that Benny
keeps looking at in the Surge Force furnace glass 🙂
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

This is Daily

Signs of summer
come and go
up here with
the rain and snow.
Certain days
might seem insane
when it’s snow
and should be rain.
With the seasons
there and to
certain stumbles
seem in view.
Signs of summer
might arrive
seeming winter’s
still alive.
This is daily
how I’m found
here in Maine
and time goes round.
Signs of times
that shadows cast
sometimes seem
it goes to fast.
For when summer
finally comes
it seems winter’s
setting suns.

Springtime’s Magic

Springtime’s flowers
come and bloom
April, May
and also June.
When their blossoms
come alive
they help others
stay alive.
Sharing pollen
with each day
when some critters
come their way.
Taking pollen
from the flowers
they move on
to other hours.
Springtime’s magic
can be seen
as the sight
of a rushing stream.
across the way
display springtime
day to day.
So as springtime
comes in view
let it live now
within you.

Morning Shines

Morning comes
with its daylight
as it shows
the end of night.
Minutes blessings
come in view
as the days start
so anew.
Morning shines
with its own way
time to time
and day to day.
As a picture
hanging true
morning comes
with its own view.
Painted surely
with God’s hand
every place
of which we stand.
It’s our choices
daily stood
that which paints
our neighborhood.
Let the mornings
display signs
of the sights
of God’s designs.
Don’t let self-will
choose your path,
for you’ll find then
Start each day
with solid ground
waking up with
God around.

Many Lessons

Many lessons
daily seen
might seem as
a bouncing spring.
Some might seem
a bouncing ball
giving lessons
all in all.
Yet with bouncing
there and to
you might find
a painful view.
Many lessons
find a place
found in others
time and space.
Often lessons
that we find
just live on
inside our mind
leaving no one
ever knowing
if you’re ever
really growing.
Let the lessons
within you
be the good
you say and do.

Yesterdays Found

Seen as illusions
often are real
sights that our hands
can touch, hold and feel.
Sometimes a view
that’s seen from our eyes
is just denial
and filled up with lies.
Yesterdays found
might surely just be
things we’ve envisioned
hopeful to see.
Yet of course moments
that we wish true
might end in crashing
with sadness to view.
Search through the then
that surely came round
and find the lessons
of yesterdays found.

Stages Set

Now in April
I can see
sights and sounds
in front of me.
Robins chirping
in the sky
as they sweetly
just fly by.
Tree to tree
I hear the day
blowing briskly
in its way.
Tree limbs swaying
in the breeze
with the glimmer
of new leaves.
Sights are changing
as I stand
holding out
my reaching hand.
Seeking for to
catch the wind
and then own it
as my friend.
Time is paging
stages set
with a time
I’ll not forget.

It Is Christmas

Some write Xmas
I do not
for it’s Christmas
I have sought.
If I let ones
change my view
then I might then
be them too.
I am me
and always will
love dear Christmas
oh so real.
Not a change
in how I say
Merry Christmas
day to day.
It’s not Xmas
that I see.
It is Christmas
Found through blessings
Jesus born
I find Christmas
Him adorn.

Sometimes Dreams

Having a dreamers
insight mind
helps me see a
better time.
Looking passed this
now today
I can see a
better way.
In a dreamers
point of view
hope can live then
within you.
Yet let dreaming
find its place
not to always
be the case.
For a dreamers
point in time
needs a special
frame of mind.
Let your dreams to
live and breathe
only if they’re
meant to be.
Sometimes dreams
of other places
are just meant
for other faces.
Yet let dreams to
live in you
for some peace
to daily view.

Sometimes Then

Now and then
our when and where
leads us to
a then and there.
Sometimes then
our wantings laid
lead us to
mistakes we’ve made.
Now and then
our how and when
search to find
ways to begin.
Scenes confusion
find a view
that is made
from things we do.
Now and then
our when and where
ends up in
a slight despair.
Through illusions
that we’ve sought
there is often
what should not

Sounds of An Echo

Throughout the valley
some sounds reverberate
the sounds of an echo
just seeking its mate.
Echoing passion
with true love in sight
I hear the calling
real late in the night.
Sounds found so sweetly
as echoes of love
heard across the valley
and trees up above.
The sounds of an echo
are sweetness to hear
painting a porthole
that is so sincere.
With coming of springtime
those echoes all grow
that once were covered
with wintertime’s snow.

for Apr 20, 2012

Lies will grow larger
as the truth is buried deep.
Truth will set you free.

Leaving a shadow
of yourself in yesterday
is not prevented.

The buds of flowers
live under wintertime’s snow
awaiting to bloom.

A breeze of summer
comes as a moments blessing
to cool off the day.

Beyond now today
are tomorrows not yet seen
that today can change.

Stuck in yesterday
can leave today unprepared,
so deal with today.

Having true passion
gives chance for carnality.
Let true love reside.

Looking beyond now
only shows shadows of time
that might not be true.

Seasonal values
come as glimmers of a time
differently seen.

When reading a book
many get way too involved
and life falls away.

Loose fitting jeans
are like a life that’s not you.
You will be exposed.

The face of Jesus
lends a smile for a moment
when sadness is found.

Only a second
is the importance that’s found
as hours collect.

Braving the rapids
might leave ones that care for you
with many worries.

Thinking you’re not seen
is just a mere illusion,
for God can see you.

Kindred spirits thrive
when love is held so truly
as angels of time.

Finding a needle
in a haystack of trouble
might stick your behind.

Mornings arrival
comes with glimmers of hope
just needing some time.

Wars waged on others
could be due to not knowing
who they really are.

Many mysteries
arrive as merely shadows
we don’t understand.

When fighting someone
step back to see the reasons
and see if they’re good.

Now spring has sprung
with its many famous sights
such as daffodils.
