Mornings Breath


Hello my friends

It looks like we’re in for a few warm days this week.  Of course
nothing quite as warm as down south hehehe.  Our little weather
program we have says it’s 85 F outside right now.  It’s not that
bad as long as we have a breeze.  I’ve got the windows opened
and fans circulating throughout the house to bring in some cool
air,  so we will do without having to turn on our little portable air
conditioner for another day.  It’s partly cloudy with a chance of
fog over night and a 40 to 50% chance of rain for Monday and
Tuesday.  It’s supposed to be in the mid to upper 70’s most of
the week.  Today’s high is supposed to be 82 F.  Milo has been
planting himself in front of the fans to stay cool.  Benny is just
hanging out in the living room where there’s a nice little breeze
coming through.  If it get much warmer,  the portable AC will
be turned on to do its job LOL.  Well,  it’s time for a new topic.
Judy and I as well as Benny and Milo have recovered from our
long drive to Texas and back.  We love our new old car.  Our
old Mazda Protege served us well for many years.  I bought it
new in 1995 and then we drove it for the 12 years that we have
been married.  It got us where we needed to go,  but it was time
to let it go.  Thank God for my mom.  We love our Phantom :).
Hehehehe phantom white is the color it is.  It’s a 2009 Nissan
Rogue.  It’s much easier for Judy and I to get in and out of,
or it is for Judy hehehe.  I have trouble getting in and out of
anything.  Benny is having a bit of difficulty getting in it being
it’s much higher off of the ground than our Mazda was hehehe.
Milo just hops right in,  by aiming for the floorboard and then
hopping up to the seat.  Benny hasn’t learned how to do that
yet,  so I have to pick him up and put him in,  or he’ll just cry
in his little whimpering way while looking up at the seat LOL.
In time he’ll figure it out,  I Hope.  I’m sure he’ll figure it out
as we take our many drives to WalMart and there about :).
We will often take a scenic drive to snap a few pictures,  but
this passed week has been without much driving hehehehe.
So I didn’t take many pictures.  I have already panned a few
pictures of our drive to Texas together for today’s stationery.
So those of you receiving my journal via stationery style will
get a little glimpse of our drive.  next week I might do our
drive back to Maine or something in stationery.  You never
know LOL!  I will most surely take a few pictures this week,
so ya just never know what will show up in my stationery :).
Benny has made his way in here to take in some of the air
that’s blowing around the room,  but of course the breeze is
not that great at the moment LOL.  I think he just wanted
to be near us.  He’s lying in a doggy bed right now and Milo
is just lying in the floor with his head on Benny’s food dish.
LOL,  it’s not a soft pillow,  but he say’s it’ll do hehehe :).
There’s not much that has changed in our little home other
than the days.  We enjoy watching Benny and Milo playing
as they play chase through the house.  I’ve gotta one day
soon uncover our picnic table and chairs and put the boys
kiddy pool in the yard and fill it with water.  I’m sure they
will enjoy that.  I’ll have to buy me a new grill,  being our
old one rusted to pieces and I had to throw it away LOL.
I might try to get a better one than we had before.  It was
just a cheapo.  Whew it’s warm hehehe!  Thank God,  it
should be cooled down a bit before we head off to bed :).
Judy’s been doing dishes off and on while I’ve been doing
my writing.  She’s also been rinsing out empty soda cans
and putting them in a trash bag for us to return.  We take
turns doing all of that.  I do most of the vacuuming,  but
she takes care of the dusting.  Of course we don’t do it
every freaking day LOL.  We’re not OCD hehehehehe.
I used to be a little bit,  but since we have moved into
this small trailer house,  I’ve been forced to give it up :).
Now I just try my best to keep the house as clean as I’m
able to.  Of course our health plays a big part on how
often we clean it hehehe.  I will often stroll through the
house and pick up the doggy toys and left over treats
and put them in their places while knowing that they’ll be
back in the floor quicker than I can say wiener schnitzel.
Yep,  they have their favorite doggy toys and you can
be sure to hear them squeaking throughout the house :).
The antics that they will often pull,  keep Judy and I much
amused.  So what else is going on around this silly place?
We’re down to 1 neighbor and it looks like they will be
gone shortly due to some trouble they’ve caused.  It’ll
be great to see some decent people moving in,  but our
landlord has a lot of work to do on the houses before
they’re ready for moving in.  In the mean time,  we’ll
just enjoy the peace and quiet aside from the times that
I jam on my conga drums hehehe and Milo is barking
to come in.  Benny won’t have any neighbors to watch.
He also tends to bark if he hears a car door or engine
that he thinks might be in our driveway.   That does
get a bit annoying at times especially when what he’s
hearing is neighbors across the way,  nowhere near
our house hehehe.  Though we thank God for our little
overactive doorbell and the brother that helps along :).
I was forced to have to turn on our portable AC hehehe.
It was getting a bit warm in here at almost 90 F degrees.
The breeze must of died.  Anyways,  back to rambling.
Benny had gone into the other room before I shut the
door to turn on the air conditioner and he came back
scratching at the door wanting back in hehehe.  Him
and his brother are now lying in the floor between us.
We thank God often for the many blessings we have
received and those that we’re unaware of.  He has
kept us safe and allowed us to experience life each
day with blessings surmounted.  Being able to breathe
in the mornings breath and watch the sunrise to come
over the horizon is a blessing in itself,  not to mention
the birds that sing of praise while fluttering amongst
the trees.  God’s blessings are all around us and we
just need to open our minds up to see them.  Life is too
short to stay focused on the bad stuff.  Find the many
blessings no matter how small they might seem.  It’s
often the small ones that become much greater in time.
Lose the poor me attitude and become thankful that
you have what you have.  Sometimes being thankful
for the problems will make them to fade from view.
Now, I do believe it’s time for me to begin my search
back through all that I’ve written here to see if I can
find a decent 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.  I think I may of
found a good title and now after checking I see that
I haven’t already used it,  so it’s good to go hehehe.
So,  here goes nothing.

Mornings Breath

The day begins
with suns arrival
bringing in
the days survival.
The mornings breath
of which I breathe
helps me now
to just believe.
Seeing flowers
blooming brightly
that will sleep
each moment nightly.
The sight of day
is found to be
mornings breath
for you and me.
Even storm clouds
in the sky
the mornings breath
gives its reply.
For the raindrops
that might fall
the mornings breath
is overall.
Scenes relinquished
from the night
the mornings breath
gives greater sight.
So if troubles
come to you
the mornings breath
can change your view.
Let God help you
then to see
a mornings breath
so great to be.

Ok,  so there ya go.  I hope you enjoyed my rambling and
maybe even the poem LOL.  I am most times just writing to
myself hehehe or that’s how it all began :).  It always helps
me to write down my positive thoughts so I can read them
again on days that I am depressed and yes,  I too get a bit
depressed from time to time.  I am human after all hehehe,
although there are many that will try and argue that point :).
I do love to look at scenery and play with our boys.  Yet,
I do wish my daughter and granddaughter could come up
and visit as well as my mom and many friends.  Who knows,
that might happen sometime.  That would be GREAT!!!!
We did get to see quite a few of my family and friends in
Texas last month.  That in itself was a blessing,  but I was
sad to have to leave,  yet I did know that we needed to get
back home,  because my side and back were hurting bad
due to rolling bed hehehe and Milo wasn’t feeling well at
all.  He’s feeling much better now. As a matter of fact he’s
back to his ornery self.  He loved my mom and was always
on the couch snuggled to her. As a matter of fact when we
stopped at a rest area,  Judy was walking the boys while
I visited the latrine and when I got back she said that Milo
started doing something he’s never done and that was try
to pull out of his collar to go somewhere,  but she said when
she looked to see where he was trying to go,  she smiled.
There was an elderly lady sitting off in the distance at a
picnic table and she looked a lot like my mom LOL.  Milo
wanted to go and see her BAD :).  Yep,  he loves my mom.
I’m guessing it has to do with the fact that we are related,
but I’m just guessing.  Ok so with that said I guess I need
to stop myself,  before I end up in total Rambles Ville agin.
It’s time for me to be telling you what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers 10 more poems, but one of them this time
is a Christmas poem.  Also I wrote once again 22 haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you find one
or two of either or both that you like.  Now it’s time for me
to be searching for that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful day and a God filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now where on Earth is that freaking off switch hiding at
this week?  For Heavens sake you silly thing,  can’t
ya at least use your imagination a bit more that that :)?
Hiding in my Claritin D box isn’t one of your greater
hiding spots being that I have tons of allergies which
are cause for me to look inside often and get a tablet.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

New To Sight

Day to day
and night to night
many things
are new to sight.
Things displayed
of which we see
might be new
to you and me.
New to sight
is sometimes found
things each day
always around.
Found in hurry
we walk right by
the things each day
of ground and sky.
New to sight
those things might be
what we truly
need to see.

True To Self

When lives are lies
not true to self
the stories told
sit on false shelf.
The troubled words
so many hear
might be perceived
as insincere.
For true to self
should show outside
the words you say
with life applied.
Stay true to self
through God and prayer
and let your life
be love and care.
Let God to shine
your every day
while true to self
becomes your way.

Summertime’s Sunshine

With birds a chirping
and breezes blowing
summertime’s sunshine
is bestowing.
Displaying rainclouds
some days so fine
to cool off the moments
of hot summertime.
The sunshiny minutes
pass by sometimes slow
while many dream of
that wintertime snow.
The hot sun that’s shining
in summertime’s days
finds many dancing
beside oceans waves.
Summertime’s sunshine
gives proof of it’s glance
while ones on hot sand
will shimmy and dance.
Scenes are transfixing
as echoes of time
found in the moments
summertime’s sunshine.

The Hearts Shelter

As hard times come
they build a guard
to sometimes be
our lives punch card.
Tagging minutes
hard times show
while becoming
what we know.
The hearts shelter
grows with fractions
sometimes from
bad interactions.
Let not passed lives
hurt attained
to cause sadness
love abstained.
The hearts shelter
can be good
if it’s truly
Use those time frames
you’ve been through
to make better
life for you.
Lose your passed days
and find true love in
hearts shelter.
Allowing others
to come inside
will let your blessings
to reside.
The hearts shelter
God gave true
to help you find
a life for you.
So don’t let anger
close your mind
and not allow
good things to find.

Angel of Hope

When right now
you cannot cope
God will send an
angel of hope.
Yet we must let
them reside
and allow their
hope applied.
Angels of hope
are many times found
sometimes as strangers
that come around.
Often an angel
will be beside you
helping you do
the things that you do.
Sometimes in struggles
beyond daily scope
there will be surely
an angel of hope.
Hidden from vision
behind someone’s heart
and angel of hope
will surely impart.

The Tractor Sounds

Beyond what I’m seeing
I hear such a sound
that of a tractor
just roaring around.
It’s just our landlord
on our bumpy road
driving his tractor
will little a load.
Cleaning up waste piles
of passed tenants stay
he’s got his tractor
to clear it today.
He loaded a truck up
with garbage galore
cleaning the place up
a little bit more.
It seems he’s finished
as he drives away
and waiting tenants
for some other day.

My Dad and Me

We found so many
things in time
that our passed days
did unwind.
Many blessings
him and I
my dad and me
were eye to eye.
We also found
a few not good
while I learned
what all I should.
I went my own way
long ago
and God allowed
my need to know.
My dad and me
found many times
him and I
with daily signs.
He saw my gifts
in many ways
that would surely
him amaze.
He helped along
my music quest
so I played
my very best.
Beating drums
my time applied
with headphones on
and me inside.
He saw my gift
in poetry
and gave God praise
so Heavenly.
My dad and me
found better true
a friend so great
that God had grew.
Now he’s gone
but just in flesh
and his spirit
gives refresh.
My dad and me
are still together
heart and soul
that last forever.

While Time Flows

As a river
twist and turns
the flow of time
my sight discerns.
While time flows
it leaves a trace
found upon
my daily face.
Journeys driven
far and wide
a moment flows
to then decide.
Left or right ways
then bestows
as a river
while time flows.
Forks in roads
of journeys while
cause a change
in moments mile.
Our decisions
to and fro
need us seeking
good to go.
While time flows
through mysteries
it might lead to
deep blue seas.
Journeys end then
might be found
lessons learned
when come aground.

My Christmas Heart

My dreams through summer
are snowflakes of white
with my Christmas heart
a wonderful sight.
The first seasons snowflakes
that fall to the ground
land then so softly
with nary a sound.
Not but the wind blowing
snow thereunto
my Christmas heart
remembers that view.
God’s painted artwork
that none can repeat
my Christmas heart
seeks more to accrete.
Snowflakes of Christmas
just growing each day
to give us Christmas
a magical way.
White snow so fluffy
is seen far and wide
in my Christmas heart
that lives deep inside.

Break Into Blossom

now and then
and after spring.
They’re so yellow
day and night
and then turn
the shade of white.
They break into blossom
with stories to tell
words of a moment
with their sweetest smell.
natures call
for more to bring.
Seeds in wind
break into blossom
giving birth
for more to come.
Fluffs of white
are blown away
to find another
distant day.

Without our choices
we would just be mere robots
with no will to live.

Looking for changes
will often stir up moments
that you did not want.

A doorway through time
brings a mysteries journey
filled with surprises.

The sight of flowers
shows the bonding of seasons
and how they exist.

While now passes on
it leaves a trail of itself
as footprints in time.

Glaciers footsteps
are as yesterdays travels
into tomorrow.

Impossibles belief
is a faith driven insight
in what you can’t see.

Morning times sunrise
brings forth some new beginnings
and sunset brings rest.

Beyond what we see
are often shadows of time
we don’t understand.

A hurried person
will sometimes jump through some hoops
to get there quicker.

Now is just a time
that was once a minute ago
that went on its way.

Painting a picture
with your  imagination
can create wonders.

Fisherman stories
speak of ones that got away
that might not be lies.

When a doorbell rings
you will most times answer it,
so why ignore God.

Minutes of breathing
will bring forth many blessings
that we may not see.

Through our perception
we’ll often surmise wrongly
and not see the truth.

Limitless power
comes from Lord God up above,
but used in His Will.

Seeing a storm cloud
that’s floating across the sky
might be false alarm.

Today’s filled with hope
that can become a blessing
if we will believe.

Living in the now
allows yesterday to leave,
making room for change.

A lost white snowflake
loses itself  in ones mind
that dreams of Christmas.

Our wants and wishes
can become as our nightmares,
that aren’t meant to be.
