Never Be The Same

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been?  We’ve been doing fairly well.  The
weather hasn’t been too awful bad.  As a matter of fact it’s
been pretty nice this passed week.  It’s only gotten a tad
warm.  Today’s high is supposed to be around 79 F degrees
and that’s what it is at this moment (1:30 PM).  Judy has
gone over her sisters house again today to take care of her
mother while her sister goes to work.  It’s just once a week
so me and the boys have some guy time LOL.  OK so they
are not human hehehe.  Some people swear up and down
that I’m not human LOL.  No matter,  me and the boys have
gotten used to this weekly scenario.  I stop writing time to
time and play with the boys.  Though Benny is right now
lying in his crate hoping that his mom (Judy) comes home
soon cause he misses her.  Milo is just following me all
over the place and as always wanting to lie down right at
my feet removing my leg room LOL.  I just called Benny
and he came running.  Hehehe they looked like they could
use a treat so I gave them each two strips of Bark’n Bacon.
They’re happy now :).  Now on with my journal.  We’ve
definitely got some new neighbors,  but I have yet to of
met them.  I’ll give them time to get moved in.  In the
mean time,  Benny is enjoying watching them as he has
always.  He likes to just sit and watch.  There’s not much
that goes on around this place hehehe.  I was thinking
about doing a drumming video today,  but not sure if my
arms and shoulders can handle it today.  They’ve been
hurting a bit more than normal here lately the same as
my legs and the rest of my body LOL.  It sure would be
nice to be able to sleep for more than 15 minutes at a
time hehehe.  I barely fall asleep and then have to get
up and make a mad dash to the restroom.  LOL that’s
of course if in fact I am able to actually fall asleep,  but
most times I just get so exhausted from lack of sleep
that I pass out and am awoken quickly with the need to
visit my office (ya know what I mean LOL).   Oh well
it won’t last forever,  because I most surely will be rid
of this worn out body one day soon,  thank God :).  Yet,
until then,  I’ll just do as I have been doing for decades
and catnap.  My darned chair keeps lowering on me :(.
I guess the cylinder is worn out.  It makes it real hard
to type.  Maybe one day soon I will be able to get me
a new computer chair.  Judy is needing one too,  but
she’s been needing it longer than me,  but then,  she
doesn’t do half of the writing that I do.  None the less
we will both one day soon get some new chairs when
we can afford them.  It’s not the end of the world.  We
will survive.  I’ve lived with much less in my past and
survived.  Ok so now Milo is lying down in the floor
right behind me.  I think Benny has gone back to the
living room where he does his watchdog thing hehehe.
He’s our little doorbell.  Of course often he’s just in
there barking at either the neighbors or a sound he
heard hehehe.  He’ll bark and if he doesn’t see me
or Judy coming to check it out,  he’ll head in here
and try to get us to follow him hehehe.  Kind of like
a Peekapoo Lassie LOL.  Then I’ll look and if there
is nothing to be barking about,  I’ll open the door and
show him that there is nothing to be barking about.
Then he hushes,  until he hears something else LOL.
I think I liked it better when he didn’t bark at all :),
but he was just a pup when we got him.  This passed
July 16th,  Benny turned 3 years old although he
still acts like a pup.  Milo will get in a playful mood
from time to time and chase Benny around the house,
but Milo is 9 years old and will be 10 on Halloween.
He ain’t no spring chicken ya know hehehehe,  but
there are times he likes to act like it.  Like when I’m
fixing to feed them,  he’ll jump almost a foot off of the
floor in excitement.  Dinner time is their favorite time
of day hehehe.  LOL,  any time is Milo’s favorite time
of day as long as it involves food.  I have to tell him
to go and lie down when he starts barking for a treat,
because it ain’t happening every time he wants one.
It’s mighty cloudy outside,  but we’re not expecting
any rain.  We might though get a sprinkle here and
there.  Milo has moved to the doorway and out from
under my feet where he sort of snuck to when I wasn’t
looking hehehe.  If I move my feet for just a second
he will often sneak up under my desk.  For some dumb
reason he likes to be right under foot LOL.  Oh well,
we still love him hehehe.  Now what else is there to
talk about?  Well,  I got a lot of great cloud pictures
this last week.  I love how the clouds are like artwork
always changing.  Yes I got some pictures of me and
the boys as well.  I finally managed to buy back my
1975 high school yearbook.  Mine got stolen back in
the early 80’s.  It’s great to be able to revisit my
graduation days and see some pictures that I had
not seen in decades.  There’s a picture of me playing
my trap drum set at the pep rally hehehe.  Yep,  no
beard hehehe.  Beards were against the dress code as
were many other things,  but a few things I managed
to sneak in,  like long hair or should I say sort of
long LOL.  There were a few of us rebels in school :).
I do wish I could do it again,  but do it right this time.
I screwed up many times just as many others did.  Our
life is to be remembered,  not be relived.  No matter
if you returned to that very same place,  it will never
be the same.  Times change and so do we.  Take the
memories with you,  good and bad.  Enjoy the good
ones and learn from the bad ones.  Don’t let time
to be forgotten,  for it’s with those moments that we
grow to be who we are and learn to improve.  I do
though wish I had listened more to my parents and
not have run amuck as I did,  but I can’t undo it,
so I’ve had to learn from it.  Some lessons are what
I try to teach others,  being I have already gone
through it and it’s done.  I’ve had to learn to laugh
at my mistakes and not let them become my daily
focal point.  Of course I still screw up on a day to
day turnstile.  LOL,  who doesn’t?  OK,  a better
question,  who will admit to it hehehe?  I’ve found
many people that want to act like they’ve never
made a mistake and most surely don’t want to
admit to making any mistakes behind closed doors.
LOL yep,  often the ego can cause ones to try to
hide their imperfections and make like they never
happened,  but God knows,  and in fact He knew
that we would always make mistakes,  because
that’s what gives us growth.  Sometimes mistakes
will shed light on a better avenue to travel than
we would of ever known if we had never made the
mistakes.  Like turning the wrong way on a road
showing you a better route that you never knew
was there.  In any sense,  learn from the mistakes
of yours and others and grow.  Don’t become a
stagnant pond that will not admit that there was
ever a ripple.  So I guess it’s come to that point
and time that I need to be ceasing my rambling
and taking a little looksee 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 little
place of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may have found
a good title,  but now I’ve gotta make sure that I
haven’t already used it hehehe.  Nope,  so it’s a go.
Hope it comes out making at least a little sense :).

Never Be The Same

Found as our echoes
of time and agin
will never be the same
as the way it has been.
Scenes we remember
from so long ago
will never be the same
as then to and fro.
So many moments
that we’d like to change
cannot be repeated,
they’ll never be the same.
Changes in heartbeats
from young unto old
will never be the same
as our lifetimes unfold.
So when you’re thinking
of sometime insane
learn how to change it
to never be the same.
Learn from the lessons
to gather your wits
that never be the same
needs you to resist.

There ya go!  I hope that my rambling didn’t put ya to sleep
and the poem made some sense to you.  Of course,  if what
I write helps you sleep,  then I am happy for that as well LOL.
Some of my writing is sort of silly and I know it.  :) Even some
of my poems might be a bit silly,  but I write what comes into
my thoughts.  You might not agree with some of it,  but I don’t
really care one way or another.  It’s my beliefs and the way
that I think.  I’m not in this world to have everybody to agree
with me LOL,  nor am I going to agree with everybody by
that same notion.  God gave me my perceptions and ability
to share with whomever that wants to read it.  I hope you
have been enjoying my many episodes of rambling LOL.
I often enjoy reading back through what I’ve written to see
what I might of messed up hehehehe.  Yes I do also find
things that help me that I had forgotten that I wrote down.
That in essence was the reason I began writing my journal
in the first place hehehe.  I just happened to share it with
a few of my friends and they shared it with a few of their
friends and well,  from 1995 it came to what’s now called
Animal’s Greetings being Animal is a nick name that I’ve
had since the late 70’s LOL.  Gary, the bass player in my
band from way back then, took his son to see the Muppet
Movie when it first came out and then came to practice
the next day saying he saw a creature that reminded him
of me and it even made the same laughing sounds and
played the drums in the same crazy way that I did hehe.
My hair was even so long that it made him think of me :)
Yep,  it was Animal!  LOL and so it stuck and everyone
started calling me Animal.  I don’t mind it hehehe,  it’s
better than Kermit LOL.  Ok so now that I have done
gone and rambled a bit more,  I think I need to stop here
and tell you what I tell you almost every week and that is,
I wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems with two of them once agin being Christmas poems.
One of them though is more like a children’s Christmas
story poem.  I also wrote once again 22 haiku for all of
my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you find at least one
or two of either or both that you like.  Now it’s time for
me to begin my search for that not so elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a most wonderful weekend
and a blessings filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Now to find that confounded off
switch :).  Oh for Heavens sake,  are you even trying?
I can see you as plain as day hiding on the cap of my
eyedrops LOL.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S.  The first poem is one that I wrote about Judy
and I reflecting on some great times from long ago
at Port Aransas Texas.

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

I Recall
(This is about Judy and I)

Minutes daydreams
spring to fall
are some moments
I recall.
Scenes transfixing
ocean waves
I recall
those distant days.
Summers sunshine
oh so bright
I recall
that scenic sight.
Rolling moments
footprints found
I recall
that wondrous sound.
Waves found crashing
on the shore
I recall
that time and more.
Hands held tightly
in the waves
you and I
those sunny days.
Minutes passing
now to find
I recall it
in my mind.
Our hearts gathered
for a sight
I recall
each day and night.
Then the moon comes
bright to see
I recall
just you and me.
Watching sunshine
fade away
I recall
that distant day.

Hidden Trails

Minutes passing
times details
might display some
hidden trails.
Scenes so quickly
passed us by
while our hurry
seemed to fly.
Hidden trails of
unknown days
might show futures
scenic gaze.
Sometimes as a
moments time
hidden trails
our own design.
Many footsteps
that we’ve taken
hidden trails
might then awaken.
Like a doorway
entered through
hidden trails
might show their view.
Found with footprints
others took
hidden trails
display their look.
Scenes as valleys
oceans too
hidden trails
will display true.
Timeless echoes
hidden trails
given chance
will show their selves.

Silent Storms

In the silence
you might hear
sounds of thunder
very near.
Yet some minutes
might not be
what you hear
or what you see.
Silent storms
inside ones heart
might be raging
off the chart.
For so many
hold it in
storms of anger
now and then.
Silent storms can
grow so large
that the anger
can take charge.
Don’t let silent
storms rage on.
Find some peace from
dusk to dawn
Let God give you
peace of mind
to ease the silent
storms of time.

Watching And Waiting

Searching for blessings
might lose you the sight
of what that God has
given just right.
Watching and waiting
for minutes to pass
could make the moments
seem out of contrast.
Let each days blessings
come as they will
as you continue
to try to fulfill.
Watching and waiting
can grow you impatient
not seeing truly
what’s then Heaven sent.
Just do your best now
as each season turns
and then let God to
fulfill your concerns.
He knows much better
of all that we need
so let Him give you
the best to succeed.
Often our vision
does not see the plan
while watching and waiting
for times and again.
Cease always watching
and waiting each day
and do your best now
with Jesus,  OK.

A Little Christmas

Summertime’s breath ways
are breathed with a smile
often with dreams of
a little Christmas while.
A moment of splendor
that lives in my heart
is a little Christmas
with white snowy art.
Scenes as a snowman
with a little carrot nose
and coal for the eyes
in a moment that’s froze.
A little Christmas art
that twinkles on the trees
as snow lands and plays
while blowing in the breeze.
Summertime’s sunshine
does not make this fade,
for it’s a little Christmas
that my mind has made.
A daydream of beauty
that exist now for me
is a little Christmas
of which I can see.

Beyond The Sky

While looking upwards
at clouds floating by
I have some thoughts found
beyond the sky.
Planets rotating
in their own timeframe
far beyond the sky
and an aero plane.
The dark of night displays
the stars in the sky
that might be planets
that rotate and fly.
Within their cosmos
of time faraway
our year might just be
just a moment of day.
Beyond the sky
is what that I seek
so far away
with telescope peek.
Some are just stars,
but so many we find
are planets like ours
in another point and time.
Thinking that we’re all
that Lord God has made
beyond the stars
shows all that to fade.
For He created planets
and maybe just a few
have someone on them
just like me and you.
Maybe a little different,
but yet they’re the same,
for we’re all different
with our looks and name.

Frosty’s Christmas

One time long ago
on a bright winters day
there was some snowfall
that wanted to play.
A magic hat that
was lost long ago
brought alive Frosty then
made out of snow.
He was a happy one
fluffy and white
that dreamed of Christmas
each day and each night.
For Frosty one time
as years had gone by
he remembered children
a Christmassy high.
He was excitedly
looking around
searching for children
in this little town.
Then he saw a little one
sat all alone
crying about Christmas
that he’s never known.
So Frosty walked up
and sat on the ground
and the little boy said
you’re big and round.
Frosty said I came alive
with this magic hat
and at the moment
don’t know where I’m at.
Then the little boy said
with a tiny smile
you’re sent from Santa
to be here a while.
Frosty then got up
and said to the boy
get up and join me
in a little Christmas joy.
They went off singing
and dancing with glee
while Frosty found out
why he was to be.
This little boy was left
so very alone
for he was brought up
with Christmas not known.
So Frosty taught him
the true joy to find
that is from Jesus
in true Christmastime.
He said that the season
can live all year round
inside your heart as
Lord Jesus is found.
Find now the blessings
as now comes to be.
The boy looked at Frosty
and said he will see.
The boy gave a wink
and went on his way
while Frosty went onwards
in search another day.
Looking for another
heart which to cheer
before he melts away
for another times year.

Finding Some Peace

When troubles find you
and seep in your heart
find you some peace in
a prayers work of art.
For finding peaceful
is a blessing away
found in a moments time
kneeled down to pray.
Often our struggles will
just bring us down,
but with Lord Jesus
you can lose that frown.
Finding some peaceful
might seem as too hard
when all you’re seeing
is Hell in your yard,
but look deep within you
and find breath of air
found in a moments time
through just a prayer.

Mornings Paradise

Dawns own arrival
brings tears to my eyes
with all the beauty of
mornings paradise.
Seasonal thresholds
so wonderfully staged
as morning comes with
each story well paged.
Written as turnstiles
of dawns early shine
mornings arrival
shows its point and time.
Paging as a journal
in a book with a seed
mornings paradise
gives a story to read.
Each page with wonder
and greatest surprise
is what that’s found in
mornings paradise.

Certain Times

Time for thunder,
time for rain,
time for lightning
strikes again.
Certain times are
found to be
what we sometimes
never see.
Time for winter,
on through fall,
time for seasons
to enthrall.
Certain times
we might be found
standing looking
all around.
Time for morning,
time for night,
time for each time
found in sight.
Certain times
we may not find,
because we’re looking
back in time.

Haiku
for July 19,  2014

Today gives chances
to make better tomorrows
beginning right now.

A persons answer
might not be an honest one,
but a better one.

Some clouds shapes defined
are often of the viewers
that only they see.

Counting the seconds
can make a day as a week,
so enjoy the time.

Tomorrows journey
might need some preparation
to avoid mistakes.

A new pair of eyes
can change up your perception
so look from both sides.

Beyond a birds nest
is a mother bird in watch
guarding her babies.

Life in the fast lane
will give you many problems
that could be lessened.

A summer shower
can give life to a flower,
but also drown it.

Morning comes dawning
with maybe some bright sunshine
or maybe some clouds.

Life’s a mystery
with the ins and outs of time
that might surprise us.

A disasters brink
might be found in a flower
that was just a weed.

Starting with footsteps
without watching your footing
might show some stumbles.

Ventures of a snail
are some long and patient ones
that often end short.

A turtles refuge
is within itself with faith
that none can enter.

Many flowers bloom
with just a little sunshine,
for they bloom at night.

Life in the rich world
might seem to be exciting,
but there are some jolts.

A kingdom of want
can come crashing down on you
with bricks of despair.

Lives filled with hatred
will only find bitterness
filling up their voids.

Negligent people
will lose track of what’s needed
and lose what they have.

With four pawed journeys
comes a pathway of hopeful
when they’re truly loved.

Our destinations
are written within heartbeats
found in our choices.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have you been?  Judy and I have been doing pretty well.
We went to a cook out Saturday at her sister Trudy’s house.
It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of good food to eat as
well as a lot of great togetherness.  There were tons of dogs
there LOL.  Benny and Milo were joined with quite a few more
dogs LOL.  It was hard to keep track of them all,  but I believe
there were 9 all together.  There was Benny and Milo of course
with their cousins Fenway,  Willow,  Cricket,  Dodge, Peanut,
Keony and Chillybean hehehe.  It was a dog day of summer :).
The kids spent most of their time in the pool.  Judy and I took
a lot of pictures.  I took a couple of videos of the kids in the pool
and of everyone there in a pan sort of way.  I had to come home
a little early so I could rest my eyes and then start on my poems
and haiku.  Milo came home with me being he was tired hehehe.
Milo was the oldest dog there.  At least 7 years older than all
of the other pooches hehehe.  Benny wanted to stay,  so he just
kept on playing with all of his cousins,  none which were of the
same breed as him or Milo hehehe.  He don’t care cause dogs
aren’t prejudice hehehe.  We had a lot of food left over so it
looks like we’ll be eating leftovers today :).  Of course I won’t
be able to eat much of the cake,  being I can’t handle to many.
sweets.  I never had much of a sweet tooth.  Hehehe and now
I haven’t got any teeth at all,  but I’ll maybe eat a piece or 2.
Milo just told me he needs to go outside,  so I’ll be back hehehe
in my best Terminator voice.  I’m back.  Milo is back too LOL.
He does his business and is ready to  come right back in,  but
Benny on the other hand,  followed Milo outside and is now
sitting on the front steps just looking around.  Benny likes to
go outside and romp around and watch people,  but Milo is
strictly an indoor dog.  The day we brought him home he ran
up the steps and in the house and he was happy while he made
his way around the living room vacuuming up all of the leftover
treats that Benny had left all strewn about hehehe.  Now he
goes in there time to time to see what Benny has left uneaten.
LOL Benny tried to hide his treats in the spare room,  but old
Milo wised up to that and now goes looking in there hehehehe.
It’s a high of 81 F degrees today and that’s what it is right now
according to my weather program.  It’s supposed to rain today
and on through Tuesday night.  Tomorrows temp is supposed
to be the same as today,  but the rest of the week is scheduled
for the mid to upper 70’s for the high.  Not too awful bad.  Judy
has gone over her sister Trudy’s house again today,  to take
care of her mom while her sister goes to work for her one day
a week.  So,  it’s just me and the boys again.  They’ve gotten
used to it.  LOL Milo just plops down in the floor next to me
and goes to sleep,  while Benny plays watch dog hehe.  Last
night I had to wake up Milo to let him know that mom and
Benny were home LOL.  Of course he didn’t actually get up
until Judy and Benny came in here :)  Then he wanted treats.
The wind has picked up a bit.  I just went to see if Benny was
ready to come inside,  but he’s still exploring.  He looked up
at me and gave me a little doggy smile and then continued his
little quest for who knows what LOL.  I don’t even think he
knows what he’s looking for hehehe.  It was getting a little
humid in here so I turned our portable AC on and put the
settings on Dehumidifier.  It’s already feeling much better
in here.  So,  what else is going on around this place?????
Well,   it looks like we may have a new neighbor.  They’re
moving in at this very moment.  I hope they’re decent and
hopefully sociable.  LOL it looks like they have a white
SUV as well :).  That should really confuse the boys LOL.
Benny is lying down at the side of our steps looking over
there and I can sense his anticipation,  but I think he can
tell that the car isn’t ours,  because he’s not raising a fit.
I guess the games will begin when the snow starts to fall.
White cars being hidden from view with the camouflage
of winter LOL.  It should be interesting hehehe to see if
our landlord can manage to see our cars and not plow into
them.  Hopefully the rear reflectors will help illuminate
them to prevent them from being pummeled.  I might put
out a few tall reflectors in the snow to help him to see it.
Believe it or not,  I am anxiously awaiting the first signs
of snow.  I do love snow,  but after a few months,  even it
gets old LOL.  Yet,  I don’t believe Benny ever gets tired
of it.  He simply adores snow.  We can barely get him to
come inside when there’s snow outside,  but when his little
paws get too cold,  he’s usually ready to come inside and
thaw hehehe.  The neighbors look like they’re heading out
for another load,  so Benny was ready to come inside for
a bit and guard from his recliner.  LOL I say his recliner
due to the fact he has taken it over.  It used to be mine :).
Our landlord is out there now with his tractor to do Heaven
knows what hehehe.  I think he just likes to drive his tractor
backhoe.  He was out there at the end of the driveway on
his tractor talking to the new tenants as they were trying
to leave for another load.  Now it’s sprinkling and Calvin
(our landlord) has headed back home hehehe and the new
tenants have gone on their way.  It does get a bit comedic
around here from time to time hehehe.  I hear the roar of
Calvin’s tractor again,  but he’s nowhere to be seen.  God
only knows LOL.  Milo keeps following me back and forth as
I go to see what’s going on outside hehehe.  He’s my little
shadow.  Benny is just lying on the recliner,  but now I hear
him barking at someone or something.  I’ll be back LOL.
It’s just the new neighbors again this time with a different
car.  I’m trying not to roll over Milos tail,  but he’s lying
down right under me and making it hard hehehe.  Our little
kennel :) (Pearce’s Doghouse).  My nickname is Animal
ya know LOL.  Yep,  ya can see the bond’s we have for
each other in this house.  Judy and I completed our little
home with gifts from God that have 4 legs each.  They do
though get on our nerves from time to time,  but for the
most part,  they are good little boys and we love them
bunches.  I might have to make a mad dash to go and
shut windows in a bit.  It looks like it might start pouring
down any minute now.  It was just sprinkling a little bit
ago and not worth shutting the windows.  I just went and
closed the windows on the south side of the house,  being
that’s the direction the rain is coming from.  Ya can’t even
tell that it’s raining on the north side,  other than the fact
that you can see it coming down when looking outside LOL.
Benny’s still on the recliner hehehe.  He loves that chair.
If I sit in it,  I usually end up with both Benny and Milo
trying to hop up in my lap.  Benny first and then Milo LOL.
Thank you God for giving me the blessing of this home
and allowing me to experience life of a different venture from
the nightmares that I had been through.  I realize that You
were always with me allowing what I needed just as you are
today and every day.  Many times I may have thought that
You had forsaken me,  but I found out that You were with
me just letting me learn the lessons I needed in hopes
that I would wise up.  I have wised up Lord and I am very
thankful for Your love and guidance that You sent through
people that came into my life.  We all have our down times
in life and might even think that God has forsaken us,  but
it’s not Him that’s forsaken us,  but us that have forsaken
Him at times.  We all at one timeframe or another head
down our own pathways,  but God sends us help to get us on
the right path.  It’s up to us to use that help and change our
directions and grow.  Don’t let failure to engulf your heart.
Let the failure to bring lessons into light so that you can
become stronger.  If you fail and grow from it,  then you
haven’t really failed.  Now it’s time once again for me to
begin my little looksee 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 my points of recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found a fairly good title
a ways back in my writing hehehe.  Now let’s see if I can
write even a halfway decent poem using it hehehehehehe.
Here goes nothing,  :) which might truly be the case LOL.

We Can Barely

Sometimes daydreams
that we find
turn into a
big land mine.
We can barely
sometimes see
best of daydreams
you and me.
Often textures
of our thoughts
are what many
might of lost.
We can barely
see ones ways
when they hide them
in their gaze.
Don’t let people
lie to you
finding daydreams
not so true.
Look for truthful
in daydreams
and then make them
running streams.
We can barely
see tomorrow
so don’t live with
so much sorrow.
Do your best now
times so rarely
not just thinking
we can barely.
Lose the downsides
stormy weather
that might seem
to last forever.
For there’s hopeful
to attain
that God’s sent us
now again.
We can barely
see beyond
so find joy
in each new dawn.

Ok,  how was that?  LOL,  I know,  it wasn’t that good,  but
you try to find a new title to use when you’ve already used
well over 8000 hehehe.  Then try writing a poem using one
that might not seem to work so well as a title hehehehehehe.
Anyways,  I think it came out fairly well :).  No matter,  it is
done!  Well it has cooled down a bit since I began writing :).
It’s now 77 F degrees at 6:30 PM.  Milo is still lying down
in the floor right beneath me.  He did though move his tail,
so I’m not as worried about running it over as I was hehehe.
Judy should be home in a few hours.  Then we will eat dinner.
I might feed the boys before that though.  It’s determined
whether I finish this before she gets home or not.  I’ve still
gotta find pictures to pan together for my stationery and then
send this to my other computer to do it up on my Outlook
Express,  being Windows Live SUCKS in a big way LOL.
I hope they come up with a fix one day,  but until that day
arrives,  I’ll still be using my trusty Windows XP for my
journals :).  It still works as it always has,  GREAT,  but
being that I didn’t buy the new XP PC until I could afford
it,  all of my poems and journals are on this Windows 8
with Windows Live (HOTMAIL) which does not give me
an ability to transfer my emails back to Outlook Express.
My old PC with Windows XP literally died but I backed
up my poems and journals on my external and transferred
them to this piece of garbage and I had no clue at all
that Windows 8 with Windows Live would be so bad,  so
I had to start using Judy’s PC with XP to do my journals
and send them being Windows live won’t do what I need.
Oh well,  I’ll manage hehehe.  If that’s the worst of my
problems then I’m counting my blessings :).  Of course
we all have our share of difficulties and to the owner of
the problems,  they might seem much greater than others,
but remember,  there is always someone in worse shape
than you.  There is also always someone better than
you at doing something,  so just do your best.  We each
have our own personalities and abilities.  Gifts from God.
So now I guess before I begin rambling too much again,
I need to tell you what I tell you every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.  I wrote them
all yesterday,  this time as I usually do unlike what I
did last week LOL.   Anyways,  I wrote 10 more poems
with 1 of them being a Christmas poem and another
being sort of Christmassy in a seasonal sort of way :).
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there.  I hope you find something that you like.
Now with that said,  I need to start searching for that
not so elusive off switch,  but not before I wish you a
most wonderful weekend or at least what’s left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Now,  where’s that off switch hiding
at this week?  Ok now,  that’s just flat stupid.  Hiding
behind my razor knife that is the thinnest thing on my
desk LOL.  Did ya think I wouldn’t see you right there
in front of me?  WRONG hehehe!   Gotcha,  see ya
CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

Lazy Days

Summers passions
bright sun rays
often finds some
lazy days.
Mornings doorways
entered through
brings lazy days
to me and you.
Maybe not so
for you and me,
and so many
would agree.
Yet there’s many
finding fame
with lazy days
that times attain.
We each need a
time to rest
a lazy day
to give you breath.
Lazy days
of now and then
often help us
to begin.
A breath of air
to help you flow
so you’re rested
where you go.

Looking Too Hard

As years roll loosely
some time might pass
while looking too hard
for shadows to cast.
Sometimes our efforts
are weighing us down
preventing good moments
to just come around.
Don’t let your hurries
to blind every view,
for sometimes wanting
might turn things askew.
Looking too hard can
blind you from good,
for sometimes inside
is not understood.
Often ones outside
will not show what’s real,
for what’s on inside
might have sex appeal.
So if you’re finding
you’re looking too hard,
step back and look at
the internal yard.
Take the time to look
beyond your own sight
and you might find then
what that is right.
Far beyond the flesh
of the person you see
might be the right person
God gave you and me.

Looks of Time

Seen through decades
moments too
looks of time might
seem askew.
Sometimes symptoms
of a change
might just seem
a little strange.
Often segments
that we see
were just changed
in you and me.
Minutes tick on
day by day
looks of time
form their display.
Sometimes dismal,
sometimes fine
date to date
our looks of time.

Pouring Down

Streams of minutes
waltz around
with some troubles
pouring down.
Many doorways
we’ve walked through
share confusions
every view.
Things we’ve dreamed of
day and night
come pouring down
with joy and fright.
Your perceptions
seen around
might be lesser
pouring down.
It just might be
blessings seen
thought a nightmare
found a dream.
Pouring down
those times you feared
might be lessons
time’s adhered.

Catching Wind

Laughing playing
here and there
time moves on
with non compare.
Younger times
of long ago
catching wind
was times I know.
In a car with
hands held out
catching wind
was then no doubt.
Lettings waves of
wind flow through
was the best thing
then to do.
Mom and dad would
watch and stare
while I’d  try to
catch some air.
Time’s moved on now
like a trend
while remembering
catching wind.

Family Ties

Truth of family’s
not just in blood
for many people
are just pure mud.
Not truly caring
about you and me
their family ties are
just history.
Find the connections
of family ties
and see the blessings
of much greater size.
Look past the blood
and see what is there
and learn the truth
of ones love and care.
Truly so many
see family ties
when they are built
on so many lies.
For I say family
is not just of blood,
for there is family
built with true love.

A Certain Time

A timeless blessing
that I remember
is from my childhood
found in December.
Christmastimes essence
flavored our home
when I was younger
in flesh and bone.
Sweet Christmas music
played on our radio
with a sweet mixture
of songs about snow.
A certain time that
blossomed so great
I now remember
that wonderful date.
Dreaming of Santa
and presents galore
that he would bring me
not from a store.
So many blessings
from that great design
are found so Christmassy
a certain time.

Mornings Remembered

December mornings
with snow on the ground
highlight the seasons
of time going around.
Mornings remembered
of glistening hues
are the reflections
that sunshine accrues.
Diligent snowflakes
fall from the sky
mornings remembered
found eye to eye.
Seasonal pictures
painted with white
mornings remembered
are quite a great sight.
Fluffy white snowflakes
landing in place
mornings remembered
the seasons embrace.
With every second of
timeframes I saw
mornings remembered
were filled with much awe.

Without A Thought

A cloud will float over
and leave not a trace
as we watch onwards
with skylines embrace.
Without a thought of
times sky romance
clouds might float by
with nary a glance.
Blue skies awaken
as clouds move away
leaving the pictures of
a bright sunny day.
Then as the night comes
clouds might be seen
without a thought of
a skies moments dream.
Painted with starlight
and hidden away
without a thought of
the last sight of day.
Yet the clouds fade away
to give us a view
stars that all twinkle
the way that they do.
Without a thought of
us down below
the stars start repeating
their own nightly show.
Then with the dawning
of a bright new day
we might find clouds
that are all blown away.

Blessings of Time

Often our blessings
are time driven days
giving us lessons
from so many greys.
The blessings of time
are many times found
when we cease looking
and searching around.
Sometimes our blessings
might seem as so small,
but we might find that
they’re bigger than all.
The future holds segues
of stories we read
sometimes as wanting’s
and sometimes as need.
God gives us what that
fills our design
within our moments of
blessings of time.

Haiku
for July 12,  2014

Some seconds will pass
bringing minutes into sight
for many to count.

Joined with a dewdrop
the morning glistens brightly
in sunshine’s delight.

A shadowy time
brings conclusions well alive
through our confusion.

A tree that’s cut down
leaves an imprint of itself
in the sands of time.

Some doorways open
to only show mysteries
that we must have faith.

A clowns painted smile
might hide a frown behind it
with tears falling down.

Some days a flower
and some days just a blossom
awaiting to bloom.

Beyond what we see
are our imaginations
that might become true.

God gives us heartbeats
to share with one another
no matter our gaze.

Our life is a book
filled up with many pages
that are confusion.

Counting your blessings
might find you some gratefulness
for times that are gone.

Seeing a tree sway
in an early morning breeze
can feel so serene.

Candy coated lives
can turn into our nightmares
if truth is hidden.

Challenging others
could turn to your own downfall
that you’re not ready.

Looking for blue skies
could find you missing the sights
of clouds of beauty.

Doorways to trouble
often open unnoticed
until later dates.

The length of minutes
is sometimes so much longer
when you are anxious.

An angel of love
will give peace through Lord Jesus
when troubles are great.

A dust bunny’s life
can exist beneath sofas
until it’s vacuumed.

Fan blades of summer
twirl about making breezes
out of a moment.

Grandeurs delusion
comes with a false sense of pride
and gives destruction.

Nows variations
might come with many viewpoints
from different eyes.

Our Share of Disputes

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a crazy few days around here.  I’m tired of rain,
but I’m pretty sure there are a few people in other areas
that are much more tired of the rain and all than us.  We
had a lot of wind and rain Friday night and Saturday.  It’s
finally moved on a bit,  but we’re still expecting a little bit
more rain today,  tonight and tomorrow.  LOL it might even
rain a bit off and on through next week.  Like I have said
before LOL,  when it finally stops snowing up here,  it’s on
with the rain hehehe.  So far the only happy medium I have
seen is one that is paid well for nothing.  It’s 75 F degrees
right now at almost 4 PM.  Our electricity kept flickering
yesterday due to maybe some tree limbs somewhere down
the road brushing the power lines.  The electricity finally
went out due to what I think is a branch somewhere near
town falling on the power lines.  The electricity came back
on later to only go back out again for a brief,  which is the
reason that I didn’t write any of my poems or haiku until
today LOL.  Our internet server was out for a little while,
which also prevented me from copywriting so I figured
I would just wait and write it all today.  My email started
giving me heck and called Sitestar/WT my default email
and told them and the guy didn’t have a clue,  so I had
to figure it out myself.  I then called him back to tell him
what to do if somebody else calls with the same problem.
LOL,  I told him I was an internet tech back in the 90’s
and still help a few with their PC problems.  Life has a
way of creating crossroads into yesterday every so often,
hasn’t it LOL.  Milo is lying down right beneath my feet
and making it hard to type hehehe.  Judy is over at her
sister Trudy’s house taking care of her mom while Trudy
puts in some part time hours at WalMart.  So it’s me and
the boys once again.  Benny is guarding the living room
as usual hehehe.  He’s our little watch dog.  Milo just
waits for him to bark and then to make sure if it’s worth
getting up and actually barking about before he actually
gets up.  Of course he does get up often to scratch at
the door to tell me he’s gotta go potty and if I ignore him,
he starts barking at me LOL.  He barks to go out and
then barks to come back in.  That’s his communication.
LOL oh yea,  he barks for treats until we tell him to use
his indoor voice and then he sort of does a small little
roar bark that sort of sounds like (I love you) hehehehe.
Benny just sits and lets Milo do all the noise making,
because he knows that he’ll get a treat too.  I just wish
Benny would be more like Milo in telling us that he’s
gotta go potty.  He’ll just dance around excitedly until
we get then notion that maybe just maybe he’s gotta go
outside and potty LOL.  They are weird,  but we love em.
The clouds have stolen the sunshine again dad burn it.
I mean,  I do love to look at the clouds,  but when that’s
all I can see,  it dulls up the view hehehe.  So it’s 73 F
degrees now at 4:30 PM.  It got a rather sort of chilly
43 F degrees last night.  It’s only supposed to get down
to 59 F tonight,  but we never really know hehehehe.
It could get cooler.  Tomorrows high is supposed to be
81 F degrees,  but we shall see.  I just went in to check
on Benny and he was just bouncing around playing with
his toys hehehe.  Judy and I went over to her exes house
for a cookout Friday.  It wasn’t my idea of fun,   but I
did it to please her.  We didn’t stay long,  because the
boys were at home in their crates and Milo has a weak
bladder plus he drinks water like a camel and we were
sure that he was thirsty hehehehehe.  We’ve put water
bowls in with them before,  but they only end up tipping
them over and filling up the crates while splashing about
in their little home made crate pond LOL.  So,  we try
to always get back soon,  or leave one of us home with
them which is often the epidemic :).  Some days it’s just
too hot to bring the boys.  Speaking of the boys,  Benny
wanted to go outside for a bit,  so I let him out.  I think
he wants to keep a look out for momma.  He’s perched
on the front steps hehehe.  He goes bizerk when he sees
her pull up or he thinks he hear the car.  Unfortunately
he hears a lot of freaking cars that are not driving up
in our driveway LOL.   It’s OK,  we love him just the
same :).  Milo is still lying in the floor in here,  but he’s
moved from under my feet YEAH :).  Now I don’t have
to watch where I put my feet in fear of kicking him LOL.
I thank God every day for giving me such a loving home.
Yes,  we have our share of disputes,  but we work through
them with forgiveness.  The boys do get on our nerves
from time to time,  but all in all,  they’re pretty good boys.
Looking back on years of yesterday,  I can see where
my life was only full of turmoil and not many knew of it.
I held it in and never showed anyone my tears.  I’ve
learned that it’s not weak to show your feelings,  but a
strong suit to not be afraid to show your emotions,  yet
not to just be a whiny sort.  We all have problems and
there are many as I use to be that do not let anyone in
their world to share their feelings.  Many guys think
that it’s a weak man that cries.  I used to think the same
and it almost put me in my grave.  By holding in all of
your emotions and preventing anyone from helping you
you could end up with Crohn’s disease the same as I
did and almost bleed to death internally.  I had asked
for help in 1990,  but the damage was already done
and it started out as Ulcerative Colitis and gradually
turned to Crohn’s.  In 1994 I ended up in Medical City
Hospital and almost died on the gurney.  I had lost too
much blood.  It’s a long story,  but the reason I tell you
to not be afraid to let someone know your pain is that
this could happen to you or you could have a stroke
the same as I did or heart attack.  God put others on
this Earth to share with and love.  Share with them and
love them.  If you think you have nobody,  then call
somebody to ask for help.  We all need a friend in our
days of pain and sorrow just as we also need a friend
to share the good times.  LOL Don’t let a macho status
to steal your chance to feel better about yourself and
have a true friend.  Those that only want to be around
you because of money or what you can do for them are
not true friends.  Let God be your friend.  He sent His
Son to be our very best friend and Savior.  Won’t you
please let Him in.  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 to go
along with all of the other brand new poems that I wrote
today LOL.  So,  it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE :).
I think I found a good title a ways back in my rambling
that I haven’t already used.  I hope I can write a decent
poem using it :).  Here goes.

Our Share of Disputes

We each have our problems
with horns many toots
that we think more of
our share of disputes.
Times may find folly
with echoes of pain,
but we can find goodness
in friends to attain.
Our share of disputes
are often made large
when in fact they are
when anger takes charge.
Let not your troubles
to grow to contend.
Find peace in blessings
with hands of a friend.
Soon then your problems
will lessen their routes
learning that we all
have our share of disputes.

Oh yea,  Happy late 6th of July hehehe.  Ok so it’s not
the 4th.  I can’t rewind to it.  OK so happy Belated 4th
of July.  Are ya happy now.  Quite a few were rained out
due to Hurricane Arthur.  Judy and I didn’t shoot off any
fireworks.  Not that we ever do.  I haven’t shot off any
type of fireworks in decades.  Watched a few,  but didn’t
light any hehehe.  I used to many years ago,  but it got
old and I was tired of almost blowing my hands up with
the short fuses hehehehe.  Milo just knocked at the door
saying he needs to go out and potty.   Be back!  Back.
Benny was ready to come back in as they passed like
ships in the night LOL.  I’ll be hearing Milo barking in
just a bit saying he’s done and ready to come back in.
OH,  there he is.  Be back!  LOL Back!  They started
playing chase while running in front of me coming back
in here hehehe.  Ok so I guess before I get back into
rambling mode I need to tell you what I tell you every
week and that is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems which none of them this week are
Christmas poems hehehe.  One is allllllmost hehehehe,
but no cigar LOL.  I also wrote 22 more haiku for all
of my haiku lovers out there.  Yes again,   I wrote all
of the poems and haiku today as I said before :)  So,
being that Judy’s not here,  I had to edit them myself,
so don’t get your hope up too much hehehehehehe
Now it’s getting close to the time for me to begin my
search for that not so great at hiding Off Switch LOL,
but not before I wish you a fantastic weekend or at
least what’s left of it and a blessed week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  OK,  are ya at least
trying to hide this week?  LOL ya must be,  because
I can’t see ya right off.  Aha,  I see ya,  hiding behind
my little statuette that some of our neighbors gave me
a couple of years ago.  It says (I Think You’re Nice).
I sure miss them as well as others.  We had a flood
in front of our house the end of June 2012 and all of
their kids brought a canoe and paddled from one side
to the other hehehe.  Benny had fun playing with them.
The good old days :)  Anyways,  I see ya you little
whippersnapper LOL.  You’ll have to hide a lil better
next week.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

In Our Path

Summers stories
written said
in our path are
found ahead.
Things envisioned
journeyed to
in our path is
found a view.
Sometimes troubled,
sometimes not
in our path is
little,  lot.
It’s those moments
bumpy whiles
in our path that
show their styles.
Sometimes lessons
good and bad
in our path are
what we had.
Yet those journeys

The Past Today

While now is in view
the past lingers on
leaving us memories
dusk unto dawn.
The past today
is not often clear
for it’s a moment
of our yesteryear.
So many turnstiles
are found down the road
sometimes with minutes
that seem to explode.
Our recollections
of then thereunto
is sometimes clouded
with what we now view.
Often it’s anger
that describes our way
when we are viewing
in the past today.
Letting our lessons
to be only pain
seeing the past today
without the gain.
Look now at yesterdays
journeys detail
and see the lessons
that then seemed as Hell.

Watching Unfold

Many times people
will only see bad
when they are looking
with what that they had.
Watching unfold
the remembered times
might be recalled
as many land mines.
Yet often memories
that we recall
are just a moments time
spring unto fall.
A different year
and a different day
watching unfold
might not be that grey.
Don’t let the sadness
that yesterday saw
to become only
your destiny’s flaw.
For every moment
gives new to behold
that we can thank God
while watching unfold.

Another Answer

A question of minutes
with pages we turn
gives us the gateways
to times we discern.
With many answers
to questions we ask
comes many wrong ones
that our times unmask.
As we ask questions
some answers might come
flooding so brainless
and seeming so dumb.
Yet another question
might surely give you
another answer
that might clear the view.
Don’t just be sitting
with one answer said,
for another answer
might be better read.

A Trillion Stars

A night so bright
a trillion stars
has the help
of Venus and Mars
The moonlight too

A trillion stars

Glittering surely

are so full of love.

Counting Minutes

Time moves on
as minutes pass

maybe too fast,
but when counted

A lake soon grew
from waters that stood
day 5 of July
in our neighborhood.
A time long ago
I remember so well
seemed just alike
this time that I tell.
Day 5 of July
had one thing so new
the lacking of kids
in a wooden canoe.

As A Wave

Moving seasons
clouds of rain
brings some sights
on windowpane.
As a wave
that flows with ease
clouds pour drops
upon the trees.
The wind then blowing
harder still
brings more rain
on windowsill.
Sounds of thunder
lightning strikes
found within
the darkest nights.
As a wave
it rolls and roars
dark of night
through cloudy shores.
Scenes transfixing
in the night
clouds of rain
with streaks of light.
As a wave
through highest seas
lightning sounds
in great degrees.
Roaring as a
cloudy lion
Heaven above
in mounts of Zion.
Raindrops fall
with much to save
and it pours
just like a wave.
Puddles join
with drops delight
as a wave
within the night.

Lonely Times

When in my shadows
I find only me
I look beyond right now
to search out to see.
Lonely times visions
are often what’s found
when I look inside
not all around.
Links to my loneliness
often find chains
gathered from turnstiles
remembered rains.
Looking through time zones
my lonely times cry
seeking for memories
from days gone by.
Yet now I look for
the good times today
that help my lonely times
not fill so grey.
Yes there’s still lonely times
found in my sight,
but with Lord Jesus Christ
I’ll be alright.
And yes my loving wife
and four legged boys
help me find peace of mind
with days full of joy.

Haiku
for July 6,  2014

Left is a journey
of which that we might head to
that might need changing.

Links to our troubles
often come in form of greed
and wanting our way.

Tomorrows story
starts yesterday and today,
but not totally.

Looks of a liar
are spelled out in their problems
that they try to hide.

The ends beginning
finds a path from yesterday
that connects today.

Some clouds floating by
paint an ongoing picture
while they’re changing shape.

Sunrise brings morning
with chances for new choices
to brighten your day.

A fans blades will turn
giving force to the still air
making it a breeze.

While looking around
you might stumble and fall down,
so watch where you step.

A flowers journey
begins with a little seed
that finds a good home.

Tomorrow finds time
that we knew not of today
so do your best now.

Lessons are hidden
in many places that we go
and fall on our face.

When storm clouds gather
they might hide a true rainbow
within their heartbeat.

Summer brings changes
from many days of sunshine
to storms run amuck.

Chances for stardom
don’t always go as they’re planned,
for pain may follow.

Rollercoaster loops
can make ones stomach turn sickly
and lose their dinner.

Left over choices
can become as a burden,
for timing is wrong.

A wing and a prayer
is often the very truth
when in a bad plane.

Love unites people
and hate tries to destroy them,
so hold fast to love.

As the days pass by
our eyes might see many things
we don’t understand.

Lose lips will sink ships
if they’re not filtered with love
so to float soundly.

Today marks a time
that began with a moment
that it was perceived.

We May Often

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a warm one today.  Not quite as bad as it could be,
but it’s warm enough.  It’s 84 F degrees right now at 5 PM.
Of course if we didn’t have our portable AC,  it would be a
lot warmer than that right now in here.  There’s not much of
a breeze today.  It’s supposed to be in the mid to upper 80’s
all week long,  though the weather forecast predicts that it
will drop to the mid 70’s by Thursday and stay there for a
bit.  So that’s great.  Judy and I are watching a TV program
on the HGTV channel called Flip or Flop.  I won’t get into
explaining it,  because if you’re into those type of programs
you’ll already know what it is LOL.  A short info about it
is home renovation.  Now on with the journal.  The doctors
have deduced that Judy’s mom has pneumonia.  She’s still
in the hospital and will be there for at least another week or
so.  Keep her in your prayers.  She’s diabetic and blind with
a few other health issues and pneumonia is taking a toll on
her.  Anyways,  put her and her family in your prayers.  So,
what else is going on up this way?  We still are lacking in
neighbors.  We still have one neighbor,  but for how long,
that’s the question.  It would be nice to get some decent
neighbors.  We had some a while back,  but they had to
move due to finances and other.  One of our neighbors
used to fly RC airplanes and I’d video tape them in flight.
We also used to go fishing every year,  but since he has
moved,  we haven’t been fishing and I’ve only seen him
once a few years ago.  Another of our neighbors had some
kids that used to play with Benny and we miss them also
quite a bit and so does Benny. Now I just entertain myself
with my drumming videos and picture taking :).  Judy and
I enjoy our time with the boys.  Benny and Milo are doing
well.  Just as ornery as ever LOL.  Milo insist on lying
down right in front of me relieving me of any leg room.
I’ve already moved him once hehehehe and he’s back.
Though now,  he’s over to the left a bit leaving me at
least a little bit of leg room LOL.  Benny went outside
for a bit thinking in his little doggy brain that it would
be cooler outside rather than in here with the AC LOL.
After a bit,  he was ready to come back inside and now
he’s camping out in here with us.  We’ve been noticing
a lot of flooding as well as tornadoes going on in a few
states.  Our prayers go out to all of those in the midst
of the storms.  Boy I tell ya what,  everything is totally
green up this ways.  Hehehe our colors are green and
white LOL.  Of course fall brings us many more colors,
but they only last for a few weeks.  I love the greens
that seem to pop in so vibrant and also love the sight
of snow as it enhances the distant scenery,  so I guess
you could say,  I like it all.  It doesn’t get near as hot
up here as it does way down in Texas where I’m from.
I never could handle the heat and with the loss of my
many internal organs,  it makes it even worse on me
with dealing with heat.  So yes I do seem to manage
better with wintertime than I do with summertime :).
I’m enjoying watching Flip or Flop with Judy right
now :).  We love to watch programs like that such
as Property Brothers,  Brother vs Brother,  House
Hunters and a few more.  Finding Bigfoot is one of
our favorite TV programs too hehehe.  It’s on tonight.
Judy and I have many favorite TV programs that
we watch together.  Yep,  surprising as it might seem,
we enjoy most of the same TV programs as well the
things we do such as picture taking.  It’s great having
someone to share the days with.  LOL OK,  it’s also
great to have Benny and Milo to share the days with.
It seems that they have always been with us even if
it has been but only a couple of years.  There’s not
much to tell ya hehehe.  Life here at the Pearce’s
Place is pretty much a day to day turnstile with just
a few different pages turned.  Nope, we don’t live an
extravagant lifestyle LOL.  There’s more to life than
trying to keep up with the Jones.  Being happy with
what you have and being thankful can find you more
in life.  Yes :),  we do at times wish or should I say
DREAM about being rich or at least having a better
financial status,  but neither of us was raised with
much so we’ve learned to be happy with less which
in many cases is more LOL.  I see so many that
have it all,  but it seems that their worries are also
magnified.  They might try to hide it,  but when you
get a good look at their lives,  they are so worried
about what others think of them and are concerned
with keeping up with the others that it can become
a boulder rolling down hill quickly.  To get off of that
topic,  my leg is cramping badly right now making
it hard to sit and type,  so I have to stop ever so
often and stretch it.  It still hurts bad,  but there’s
not anything I can do about it,  so onwards I go :).
My chair keeps lowering down on me hehehe which
might be due to my 225 lbs sat upon it.  The chairs
not meant for that much weight I think LOL.  Oh
well,  I’ll continue to keep on raising it back up each
time it sinks on me :).  It’s just a small problem LOL.
I thank God for all that He has done for us.  He has
kept His mighty hands over us protecting us and
given us what we need.  We may often think that
we don’t have much,  but when we take the time to
take a long look at our lives,  we can see so many
things that we have that others do not.  Peace of
mind is a great gift.  LOL Milo just snuck in under
my feet and has stolen my leg room again.  Ok so
Judy just left the room to get her pizza out of the
oven and Milo and Benny followed her,  so I got
my leg room back YEAH.  All in all,  our life here
in the northeastern portion of the United States
is pretty good.  We have a lot to be thankful for
and I’m sure if you take a close look,  you’ll see
that God has been looking out for you as well.
Don’t let the minor things in life to become the
only thing you focus on.  Look for the little smiles
that might be overlooked from time to time as
a bad moment might become your daily view.
Look beyond a moments storm clouds and find
the joy in a rainbow.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to be taking my little trip 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 like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found a
good title and now after checking,  I see that I
haven’t used it yet hehehe so here goes.

We May Often

Minutes turn quickly
with troubles we see
and we may often
just see misery.
Yesterdays sadness
might right now be found
when we are now days
just looking around.
Yes we may often
just find sadness grow
what we should see with
our smiles daily flow.
So,  if you’re seeing now
only the rain
look for the blessings
and cease to complain.
For we may often just
miss what’s the best,
but if we clearly look
we’ll find the zest.
With all God’s blessings
from our time to time
we may often then
find peace of mind.

So,  there ya go.  Yea,  I know hehehe,  it’s not that good,
but hey,  I did the best I could at the moment :).  I’m not
gonna always come up with a good poem hehehehehehe.
Yet,  I hope you enjoyed my rambling and yes maybe even
the poem LOL.  Milo tried to sneak up under my feet agin,
but I kind of gave him a nudge and he moved just to the
left of me hehehe.  I have been eating my dinner while
writing and watching TV hehehe.  It kind of makes me
split up my focal points :).  I can’t think of anything else to
talk about,  so I guess it’s time for me to be telling you
what I tell you every week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems and 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.  A couple of
my poems are just silly so to give ya a grin hehehehehe.
I hope you find something you like.  Now I believe it’s
time for me to begin my search for that not so elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend and a God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  LOL Milo has moved over
to Judy’s feet.  Anyways,  now where is that freaking
off switch?  Oh for Heaven’s sake,  are you even trying
to hide?  I guess ya might of thought that if you just
remained still,  I wouldn’t see ya,  but sitting on top
of the Esc button on my keyboard hehehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe :)

Looks of Clouds

Smiling faces
in the sky
looks of clouds
so very high.
Scenes transfixing
thereunto
looks of clouds
create a view.
Moments passing
white and grey
looks of clouds
will paint a day.
Smiles so fluffy
or with rain
look s of clouds
are time again.
Temporal seconds
float on by
looks of clouds
up in the sky.

Yesterdays Shadows

Today and tomorrow
are yesterdays gain
found from the shadows
that then did attain.
Yesterdays shadows
good times and bad
give us the lessons
that then never had.
It’s with the doorways
of shadows created
that we can find times
better not wasted.
Lessons abundantly
found to and fro
yesterdays shadows
help us to grow.
So make nows shadows
that future can see
so that you might find
good history.

Lightning’s Romance

When the storm clouds
come with rain
lightning’s romance
starts again.
Making thunder
sound a roar
lightning’s romance
starts to soar.
Lightning streaking
across the sky
making thunder
with a sigh.
Echoes of it
distance seen
might create
the wildest dream.
Lightning’s romance
seen at night
makes the night sky
very bright.
Then as thunder
rolls and wakes
lightning’s romance
gives and takes.

Grateful Heart

The days we find
that fill with pain
a grateful heart
can cease the rain.
The storms of life
that come and go
a grateful heart
can end the woe.
Being grateful
for a breath
or what goodness
you have left.
A grateful heart
can bring you peace
if you find
your pains release.
Search and find
that happy place
a grateful heart
and smiling face.
Don’t let passed days
bring you down.
A grateful heart
can cease your frown.
Now let yesterdays
lessons learned
be so grateful
heart discerned.

Perfect Time

With a minute
passing view
time might be
the right to do.
A perfect time
and perfect place
might be there
for your embrace.
Yet so often
fear of change
leaves perspective
out of range.
A perfect time
for you and me
is concurring
soon to see.
Let God guide your
moments mind
and then show
the perfect time.

Woof

Our little boys
with little voices
tell us of their
moments choices.
A little woof
and then much louder
wanting their own
type of chowder.
Maybe not so
full of fixins,
but they came
within our kitchen.
All their favorite
foods to eat
woof they ask me
to complete.
A little woof
from our two boys
is the sound
of our woof mccoys.

Mowers Mowing

Sounds of lawn mowers
fill the air
as they’re mowing
everywhere.
Through the backside
then the front
mowers mowing
bumpity bump.
Lawnmower motors
roaring loud
with their drivers
oh so proud.
For the seasons
greenness grass
they’re now mowing
really fast.
Trying to keep up
with its growing
the riders ride on
mowers mowing.

Thoughts of Snow

While the summers
heat moves on
I’m now thinking
winters dawn.
Thoughts of snow
with whitish hue
fill my mind now
every view.
Summers setting
is with clouds
often as a
morning shrouds.
Scenes of peaceful
comes in sight
thoughts of snow
each day and night.
Yet now green grass
and some trees
displays all
my moment sees.
While my thoughts still
move along
thoughts of snow
from dusk to dawn.

Having Faith

When your troubles
seem too great
have some faith
that they’ll abate.
Maybe later
times to see,
but trust God
will set them free.
Having faith
is surely how
life can blossom
what that’s now.
Maybe later
dates you’ll find
God was with you
all the time.
Don’t let troubles
steal your smile.
Having faith
is better style.
Find the blessings
time has shown
and then trust
you’re not alone.
God is with you
every day
in His very Own
wondrous way.
He hears our prayers
and answers too
with what all
that’s best for you.

Dusk Has Come

Evening’s fell
on what I see
bringing dusk
so fancy free.
Stars are starting
twinkles sight.
Dusk has come
to bring us night.
Even moonlight
shares the view
where dusk thrives
each sight anew.
Evenings blessings
find a place
dusk has come
with God’s Own Grace.
Scenes transfixing
dark explores
dusk has come
through swinging doors.

Haiku
for June 28,  2014

Thriving are the sights
that nighttime makes come alive
when sunshine passes.

Doorways to today
are often entered too fast
causing us problems.

Faded memories
might come back into clear view
through a few pictures.

Links to our problems
could be found within our minds
and how we’re thinking.

Glorified mornings
come with chances for new life,
leaving old behind.

The scenes that we see
are recorded inside our minds
maybe not clearly.

A story written
might not be clearly worded
leaving mysteries.

Life brings sunrises
with some eventful moments
leading to sunset.

Looks of a smiler
might not be happy at all,
but hiding a frown.

Long winded people
often say more than they should
to describe little.

With but a heartbeat
a person can change the world
with minutes counted.

Summertime’s rain clouds
can turn to storm clouds quickly,
but still bring rainbows..

A liars own truth
gets clouded as time goes by
leaving them empty.

Life is a venture
through turnstiles of mysteries
that often needs faith.

Living in dream worlds
could end in your destruction
not facing what’s real.

Ones asking questions
need not believe all answers,
for some might be wrong.

The length of minutes
might be longer to someone
than to another.

Beyond yesterday
holds the lessons for today
and then tomorrow.

Moving too quickly
can make you lose track of time
and miss the good things.

Losing a moment
does not mean the day is done,
for more chances come.

The stars in the sky
give birth to a long story
written with twinkles.

Flowers found blooming
have a few stories to tell
spring unto summer.

Though We Didn’t

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another week gone by and the weekend has been
sort of on the same old side  Today has begun with a bit of
emergency though.  Judy’s mom is not doing well and is on
the way to the hospital.  They called for the ambulance just
a bit ago.  Keep her mom in your prayers that it is nothing
life threatening.  I won’t get into details,  because in reality
neither Judy nor I really know that much of what’s wrong,
but God does.  Anyways,  keep her and her family in your
prayers.  Judy is now headed to the hospital to see her mom.
Me and the boys will hold down the fort.  Judy and all of her
sisters will be at the hospital.  So it’s on with the journal.
The weather up this ways has been pretty nice.  It’s rained
off and on.  Even today we got a little rain shower.  The
sun has come out since then though.  Right now at 5 PM
it’s 68 F degrees.  I took a few cloud pictures through the
week and also took a few more this morning.  The boys are
watching the front door waiting for Judy to get back home.
LOL,  they are so loving.  Milo just strolled in here to see
me :).  If I get done writing before Judy gets home,  we
might all go outside and play some.  Heck,  we might do
it even after Judy gets home.  Milo had to go potty,  so I
let him outside and Benny followed him out the door,  but
Milo after he was done ran back up the steps and wanted
back inside.  Of course,  Benny wanted to stay outside for
a bit as always :).  He’ll be ready to come back inside in
a bit.  Especially when he gets hungry hehehe.  Yeppers,
our little homestead is just a simple life.  I love to hear
the wind blowing and raindrops hitting our home.  When
it snows,  the world outside becomes magical.  When the
tree limbs sparkle with snow on their limbs,  it’s like a
Hallmark card.  Yes,  I do love summertime,  but even it
can get old.  Of course we don’t have near the heat that
I grew up with in Texas,  but it does get warm from time to
time.  :).  That’s why I bought this portable air conditioner.
For those time to times LOL.  I’ve got it set on dehumidify
right now.  It actually cools the room quite nicely while
it removes the humidity from the air.  Milo has gone to
lie on our bed.  There’s a nice breeze in there with a fan
helping to blow some cool air from outside and he’s right
in front of it LOL.  I guess I need to check on Benny to
see if he’s ready to come inside.  Be right back………….
Benny was sitting on the porch and ready to come back
in.  LOL they both just came strolling in here wanting
me to pet them and I’m sure with other hidden agendas
such as wanting treats,  which they’re not gonna get just
yet.  If I gave them treats every time they wanted treats,
they would be fatter than Garfield the cat LOL.  Right
now they look fat,  but it’s only due to their hair being
bushy hehehe.  Yep,  they’re needing another trimming.
Judy was going to give them a little trim while I was
writing before she found out about her mom,  so the
trimming will have to wait.  As you can see,  or should
I say tell from my writings,  we live a slow life up here.
We’re totally loving our new car.  It’s so nice to not
have to close the car doors quickly after we started it
so not to get smoke in the car LOL.  When you first
started up our little Mazda,  it would billow smoke out
of the tailpipe hehehe,  but soon cease.  It was an old
car ya know.  19 years young hehehe.  I’m actually
surprised that it lasted as long as it did.  She got us
everywhere we needed to go.  I sure miss that little
red car,  but it might be revived and sold to another
person somewhere in time.  I find I’m often looking
for our red car when we come out of WalMart hehehe.
It’s gonna take time to get used to it,  but I’m sure
I will.  It’s 66 F degrees now at 7 PM.  Not too awful
bad huh!  I thank God for the little breezes that come
our way.  They give the day a personality while the
clouds give it a picturesque view.  The sky above us
gives us its own glimmer of decor through all of the
seasons of change.  I will often find myself transfixed
on the scenes in the distance that the skyline seems
to enhance.  Mountains, valleys and hills become
the pictures that I try to capture not only with my
eyes,  but with my camera.  LOL,  Milo just plopped
down in the floor right beneath me.  Now I have No
leg room LOL.  Oh well,  I haven’t got much else to
talk about.  The Pearce’s Place is pretty quiet other
than a little barking here and there.  Of course we
have to turn the TV up to almost full blast because
we’re both a little bit deaf LOL,  so you might say,
that would make our house a bit noisy hehehehehe.
I hope Judy’s mom is OK.  I keep waiting for a phone
call!  Well,  Judy and her sisters are there with her.
There’s not much else to tell ya about.  My cousin
Greg has been calling me often and I’ve enjoyed
our talks.  Him and his brother Randy/Phil were
almost like brothers to me.  Though we didn’t get
to spend much time together when we were young,
we still felt close.  Anyways,  thanks for keeping
in touch Greg :).  God has kept His strong Hands
over Judy and I protecting us and guiding us with
His Love.  I have so many friends in the world that
I would love to be able to meet or see again,  but
I’m sure if it’s meant to be,  it will be.  I guess 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 the title for
today’s brand new poem.  So,  it’s away I go to
that place of my recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may have
found a good title and it seems that I haven’t
used it yet,  so here goes.

Though We Didn’t

Many a minute
of days burning bright
there are some things
we did not do right.
Though we didn’t do
many things so good,
God allowed timeframes
to be what they should.
Often our self will
is found running ragged
leaving us problems
we’ve found a bit jagged.
Yet it’s those problems
that we each go through
that are most often
our lessons so true.
Though we might not of
meant to do wrong
God can put those times
where they belong.
Let not your passed days
to prevent now tomorrow
for God can make goodness
from our times so hollow.
Maybe though we didn’t
shine bright as some others
our lives in the moments
are sisters and brothers.
We are God’s children
with love of the same,
for He doesn’t care about
fortune and fame.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem and you weren’t
bored to death by my rambling LOL.  I have a very special
friend in Oregon that I would like you to send your prayers
to.  Jimmy is having health issues,  (Cancer), but he’s been
keeping with the faith.  I’m sure your prayers would help.
I know you asked me not to say anything Jimmy,  but we
love you my friend.  Hang in there.  God is in control,  but
I’m sure you already know that :).  Now,  is there anything
I might of forgot?   Hmmm,  thinking!  Nope,  can’t think
of anything.  LOL except it’s 63 F degree now at 8 PM :).
So I reckon I need to tell you what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.   LOL
I gave an effort to write all of the poems as well as the
haiku while Judy and I were watching TV yesterday and
I think I did pretty good hehehe.  I wrote 10 more poems,
but none of em are Christmas poems this week.  I also
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.
I hope you find one or two of either or both that you like.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be trying to find that off
off switch that’s not so successful at hiding hehehe,  but
not before I wish you a most joyous remainder of the
weekend and a God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now,  where is that freaking
off switch attempting to hide this time LOL?  Oh for
Heavens sake hehehe,  couldn’t ya try just a little bit
harder?  Hiding behind my Ibuprofen bottle isn’t all
that great dude.  It’s not all that large.  I can see you
poking out from behind it.  Better luck next time LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

Without Then

Scenes we remember
from times other day
are found as some echoes
when change comes our way.
All of those memories
sweetest to shine
could not without then
be so sublime.
For with the then days
of yesterdays while
today and tomorrow has
strength for a smile.
Bringing the good times
from our memories
can make your future have
much better seas,
For without then days
of yesterdays time
there is no help with
now days design.

A New Sheet of Paper

The book of time
is written and said
with many pictures
inside of our head.
A new sheet of paper
can rewrite the book
with new perceptions
of how that we look.
Not those external,
but internal views
can make the paper
to show better news.
New views well written
without all the bad
that our yesterdays
just might of had.
A new sheet of paper
can help you to write
today and tomorrow with
much better sight.

Sanctuary

Found in a heartbeat
a moment can be
love found from Jesus,
our sanctuary.
Looking with trueness
and losing the lies
there is the sense of
many blue skies.
Our sanctuary
can explode with a smile
as we look inwards
with love to compile.
Let not the hard times
that you have been through
to disrupt future
that God can give you.
Find all the blessings
so timeless to see
within God’s wonderful
sanctuary.
It can be now days
or future times grace
found sanctuary
that we can embrace.

If We’ll Release

A life’s pool of essence
can be found with peace
if we will swim with
sad times release.
Not hanging tightly
to the other side
life can show ventures
arms opened wide.
If we’ll release then
letting times go
we can find blessings
that will surely grow.
Not letting sadness
of our yesterdays
fill up our future with
just bitter greys.
The pool of tomorrow
needs us to swim
while then releasing
yesterdays dim.
If we’ll release what’s
holding us back
we might find better
to get us on track.

The Winds of Summer

Glimmers of sunshine’s
summertime’s days
display as pages of
wonderful ways
The winds of summer
blow through the trees
filling the moments with
mornings cool breeze.
Peaceful winds blowing
in with a smile
cooling our home down
in just a while.
Windows of sunshine
show through to see
given as blessings
for you and me.
The winds of summer
are pulses of time
blowing in daily
with some sunshine.

Maine’s Way of Life

When I awaken
and open my eyes
I walk to see the
Maine days surprise.
Sometimes as snowflakes
gathered so true
displaying wintertime
with every view.
Sometimes as springtime
still with some snow
while it then melts away
then oh so slow.
Then is found summertime
cooling a while
while I watch daily
with a big smile.
Then comes the colors
of Autumns array
in Maine’s way of life
with such a display.
Then again snowflakes
fall to the ground
in Maine’s way of life
as time goes around.

The Feeling of Smiles

As days are numbered
in counted a whiles
someone can give you
the feeling of smiles.
For if depression
is living in you
the feeling of smiles
can change up your view.
Someone that’s smiling
while walking their way
might be the thing to
change up your day.
The feeling of smiles
is good medicine
and it’s reflection
can make yours begin.
True there are days that
smiles are not seen,
but that’s when you need to
make them routine.
For then just maybe
that smile that you made
might become real from
life’s lemonade.

In A Second

Now and then
a seconds gone
unto dusk
and then to dawn.
In a second
time is found
sometimes seen
to go around.
Seconds passing
to and fro
left and right
as minutes grow.
Hours gather
seconds pass
within windows
shadows cast.
In a second
now and then
brings a moment
to begin.

Clouds of Rain

Morning comes
with clouds of rain
to fall upon
our windowpane.
Pitter patters
that we hear
are the sounds
that do appear.
Raindrops falling
over all
are what clouds
of rain will fall.
Bringing new days
oh so green
found in summer
after spring.
Soon those moments
we’ll attain
with the mornings
clouds of rain.

I Find Myself

Sometimes I find myself
searching the skies
looking at the scenery
filled with surprise.
I find myself often
just imagining scenes
found in the clouds above
seen through our screens.
Sometimes my viewpoints
are hidden inside
decked out in dream world
with eyes opened wide.
The world’s not illusion
for it does exist
in the places of long ago
waves rolling swift.
My dream world can sometimes
be found on our shelf
with pictures of passed days
I find myself.

Haiku
for June 21,  2014

Today brings patterns
that can change our decisions,
but still leave us hope.

Minutes bring chances
for a better tomorrow
beginning right now.

Clouds of summertime
find a way to decorate
the blue skies above.

The wind blows a breeze
with the sounds of a heartbeat
that trees emulate.

Without a dreamer
our future would be boring,
for dreams come alive.

Looking for springtime
might be hard found under snow
in northeastern Maine.

Loose lips of liars
can find themselves in trouble
for truth will be found.

Allowing passed days
to determine what can be
can hinder your growth.

The sight of snowflakes
gives view of winters efforts
to paint scenery.

Time is a journey
that many will find themselves
a real bumpy ride.

Flowers of colors
decorate so many scenes
with also their scents.

A lesson that’s learned
can become a tool to use
for you and others.

Many surprises
find their ways into our lives,
some good and some bad.

Yesterdays turnstile
swung with our expectations
that might of been dreams.

A snowflakes journey
finds a pathway from Heaven
landing here on Earth.

Two dogs play around
as the sunshine fades from view
and nighttime is found.

Places we’ve been to
can become as medicine
to recall when sad.

A photograph of time
travels like a memory
that your eyes can see.

Nighttime comes alive
with ones fear of the darkness
that sight cannot see.

Thoughts of afterlife
some see as an illusion,
but truth is alive.

Today’s a heartbeat
that’s filled with many rhythms
and some out of time.

Finding common ground
needs us to look beyond sight
and see what’s inside.

Another Frame of Life

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
and
HAPPY FATHERS DAY
to the dads

I hope you have had a great day.  It’s been rather cool up
this ways and pretty darned windy.  The highest it got today
was around 63 F degrees which it is right this moment and it
looks as though it’ll be no higher than the lower to mid 70’s
all the way into next weekend.  Tomorrow might not get up
to 70 F degrees just like today didn’t LOL.  The weathermen
are just guessing ya know :).  There hasn’t been much of a
change this passed week for the Pearce’s Place.  We’ve been
doing pert near the same old thing as always hehehe.  We’re
enjoying our new car.  Judy has gone to some of her kinfolks
for a pig roast,  but me and the boys stayed home.  I’m not
really in the mood for a pig roast.  I’m feeling sort of down
so me and the boys have been hanging together.  Fathers day
isn’t a great day for me.  I won’t get into it,  so it’s off of that
topic and hopefully onto a brighter side of life :).  The boys
and me went outside for a little walk today and we almost
blew away LOL.  Milo tends to follow me wherever I go,  so
I’ve always gotta make sure he doesn’t walk too far for home
especially when he isn’t wearing his electric fence collar which
I don’t put on them when I’m going outside with them.  Yet
they will most times stay in the boundaries without the collars,
but have been known to stroll a bit too far LOL.  I just don’t
want them to get run over by a car.  Though Milo will most
times after he has gone potty,  head for the front door and
bark until we let him in.  He don’t like being outside that much,
but Benny enjoys the sunshine.  Of course today it’s cloudy,
windy and rainy which he doesn’t care much for hehehe.  He
does love snow though.  We can hardly ever get him to come
back in the house if there’s snow on the ground hehehe.  Of
course he’s ready when his little paws start feeling the chill.
So,  what else is going on around here?  Aside from not having
any neighbors at the moment,  nothing LOL.  Our landlord
said he hopes he can get some more tenants soon,  because
if he can’t neither he nor us will be here.  I hate the thought
of having to move.  I kind of like it here.  Anyways,  he should
be able to get some new tenants soon.  One guy came by a few
days ago asking about the trailers and wanting to know our
landlords number.   Calvin said he called and he gave him an
application.  So only time will tell.  It’s in God’s Hands.  Now
what else is there to ramble about?  Milo is in the floor and
he’s snoring LOL.  I think I wore him out.  Benny’s still going
strong hehehe.  He barks at things he hears blowing about
outside LOL.  I went down the road to buy us some Cheetos
and hamburger buns and then took a little drive down the way
the other day and took some pictures ,  but I got a bit turned
around and I had to stop and ask a man where the road to the
county road was.  He pointed down the road from which I had
passed due to trees hiding it coming back from the other way.
I said thanks and turned around.  I got some great pictures.
I might not post them today though,  being I still have a few
of our travel photos that I have yet to of made into stationery.
But,  who knows.  I can change my mind if I wanna hehehe.
It’s 61 F degrees now.  I hope Judy and her kin don’t blow
away.  I can’t imagine having a cookout today in this wind
and it being so cool.  Of course the temperature shouldn’t
affect the cookout too much hehehe,  but the wind might
make it hard to keep a fire burning,  but then I might cause
it to flame up quite a bit hehehe.  Judy said she would try
to get home early,  but I know her early LOL.  Now,  what
else is there to ramble about?  My daughter wished me
Happy Fathers Day on Facebook.  That cheered me up a
little.  Benny just strolled in here and laid down beside
Milo and woke him up hehehe.  Now Milo is standing in
a daze behind me.  Ok so now Benny got back up and ran
back into the living room LOL.  Milo is now looking up at
me with his little toothy grin LOL.  I had to stop and pet
him for a bit.  Now he’s lying back down in his doggy bed.
Ok so back to Rambles Ville.  I can still hear the wind
blowing outside.  I saw a cardboard box blowing across
the way just a bit ago hehehe.  I’ve got a big rock inside
our outdoor trashcan and the lids chained to the trashcan,
so it ain’t going nowhere LOL.  The snowplow hit our
trashcan and it stopped it hehehe,  partly because our
trashcan was frozen in the snow and ice LOL.  I’m still
waiting for summertime to show its face.  It still feels
sort of like a Texas winter LOL.  The house sure feels
empty without Judy here.  I hope she gets home soon :).
In any sense,  God has kept His Mighty Hands over us
protecting us and guiding us.  I also know that my dad
is watching over us.  He was a living angel of God and
now I’m sure He’s an angel from Heaven that speaks
to me from time to time in my thoughts.  I can often feel
him beside me with his hand on my shoulder as he used
to do.  Daddy used to always inspire me with his love
and devotion.  He was a great father and dad and I miss
our time together,  but we still have it in another frame
of life.  There are times that I can feel his presence here
with me whispering in my ears with his love and guidance.
So many times,  ones will be fed lies about there parents
and it will drive a wedge between them preventing them
from being close.  I’m thankful for the time that I had
with my dad.  We didn’t always see eye to eye,  but then
in time,  that changed.  As we grow older,  our viewpoints
will often become more understanding of why our parents
did what they did.  Letting life to fall in place as it must
so to put the pieces of the puzzle together.  Many times
our puzzle pieces get scattered about with the unfolding
of lies that have been fed through time,  but with a little
help from God,  those pieces can find a way to fit together
and form a family.  I know it doesn’t always happen,  but
it does happen.  Let God help you to find the right pieces
of your puzzle.  Now,  I believe it’s time for me read back
on all that I’ve written and 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 place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I
found a pretty good title just a little ways back and after
checking I find that it hasn’t been used YET,  so here
goes nothing.

Another Frame of Life

With life found breathing
and true love and care
another frame of life
is found then somewhere.
The choices of many
are often not good,
because of the moments
they’ve misunderstood.
Another frame of life
is counted and named
giving some the chances
for better attained.
Often we will look back
on mom and dads love
and not understand all
their lessons thereof.
My dad was with choices
not always so great,
but he did his best on
that moments times date.
I tried to be a daddy
but I didn’t go far
as life threw me problems
as an unending war.
The echoes from passed days
are still on my mind
wishing for the chances
for a much better time.
But,  it isn’t over truly
for I’ve found a wife
loving me immensely
in another frame of life.
With love from my daddy
to guide me each day
another frame of life
has now come my way.

So,  there ya go.  My landlord is using the weed eater right
outside my window and it’s a little distracting LOL.  OK it’s a
lot distracting,  plus Milo has decided to lie down right under
my feet.  I let Benny outside so he could watch Calvin run the
weed eater without barking at what he cannot see hehehehe.
Judy’s not home yet.  Oh well,  she’ll be home when she gets
home LOL.  So I guess I need to be telling you what I tell
you every week and that is,  I wrote some more poems and
haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems,  but with one of them being
Christmassy and also an extra poem,  being I got a bit in a
writing mode LOL.  Also I once again wrote 22 haiku for all
of my haiku lovers out there,  but I also wrote 1 extra for the
same reason as the poems LOL.  Ok,  now I believe it’s time
for me to try and find that not so elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful day and Fathers Day as
well as a God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now to find that freaking off switch.  Aw come on!
You can hide better than that can’t ya hehehe.  Hiding right
on top of Milo sort of says (HERE I AM) hehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10+1 and 22+1 hehehehehehehe :)

Distant Times

Days remembered
distant times
are so often
moments rhymes
Distant values
long ago
now are different
as we grow.
Distant heartbeats
found in place
are now just a
moments taste.
Things discovered
now and then
had surprises
around the bend.
Scenic moments
found designs
are remembered
distant times.

A Simple Thought

With dreams of better
things you’ve sought
you might find
a simple thought.
A simple answer
to your wanting
might become
a moments haunting.
A simple thought
that’s not of need
can then plant
a saddened seed.
A dream of better
life to live
a simple thought
can surely give.
Letting greed to
fall aside
a simple thought
can be applied.
Looking truly
at what’s good
then just doing
what you should.
A simple thought
of truth and love
will bring blessings
from above.

Making Footprints

Tomorrows our journey
and yesterdays gone
while we walk onwards
each starting at dawn.
We’re making footprints
but might not know how
as we walk onwards
from then unto now.
Often our journeys
will find us a road
that at the moment
seems heavy the load.
With many dead ends
we might turn around
and find the footsteps
to much different found.
Yet it’s those moments
of timeless instance
that we are found then
just making footprints.

Save A Breath

A life in time
is breathed each day
with new born life
to shine away.
It takes some love
to save a breath
and give a chance
before ones death.
God gave Jesus
a life in time
to forgive our sin
and daily crime.
Yet we often
will look away
and not allow
a different day.
It takes some love
to best display
to save a breath
from day to day.

To Do Without

When you’ve lost
a page in time
your memories
might then unwind.
Learn to look
beyond each minute
and then see
the good within it.
The lessons learned
from roundabout
should teach you how
to do without.
Sometimes wanting
leads our mind
to dismal places
time to time.
Learn the lessons,
and then let go.
The future holds
much more to know.
Let your journeys
in and out
teach you what
to do without.

Snowy Remembrance

My mind recalls the
snow of white
with seasons flavors
found in sight.
The wake of tree limbs
covered so
with the seasons
whitest snow.
I find remembered
seasons hue
glistening snowflakes
there and to.
It seems my Christmas
thoughts in sight
are of seasonal
scenes of white.
Then I find myself
in a daze
a snowy remembrance
I can gaze.

Peace Should Be

As wars conclude
the sights we see
are all that ones
just disagree.
Many viewpoints
need to cease
with common ground
to certain peace.
Looks of others
how’s and why’s
are often found
in mere disguise.
Lands united
without war
should be found
in near and far.
So many people
will disagree
about what is that
peace should be.

Distant Sounds

In the night
I hear some things
passing cars
and a bird that sings.
Distant sounds
from faraway
sometimes sound
so near each day.
Distant tree limbs
swing and sway
to the winds
of night and day.
Distant sounds
are paving so
imaginations
that will grow.
Things I hear,
but yet don’t see
are distant sounds
of history.
Timeless journeys
far and wide
are distant sounds
I hear outside.

Stories Unfold

Fishermen stories
so many will hear
that of the big one
of times yesteryear.
Just an analogy
stories unfold
as many people
will tell oh so bold.
Let not your stories
to get out of hand
telling a big one
that you can’t withstand.
Stories unfold
to truth over lies
when in the stories
there’s no alibis.
So lose the stories
of better you are
if they’re just meant to
make you as a star.

I Tried My Best

I’ve failed so often
at things I have tried
and lost my footing
on life’s bumpy ride.
But I tried my best
to do what I should
even if most times
it didn’t go good.
Even when I strived to
be dad to my girl
my life unfolded
with Hell to unfurl.
With so many lying
and no truth for her
she found me lesser
for her to confer.
Yet I tried my best
as days turned to years
while I was left with
but only sad tears.

Winds of Change

From Texas to Maine
the roads intertwine
found as a jungle
of scenic divine.
Highlights of grandeur
with trees far and wide
as winds of change
on a long car ride.
Breezes were blowing
as mountains were seen
as they displayed each
wonderful scene.
Leaves on the trees
were a beautiful sight
as winds of change
from day into night.
With windows opened
on this mountain range
we found the blessings
in those winds of change.

Haiku
for June 14,  2014

Just because said
gives only a mere reason,
but not really why.

Looking for shadows
might find some animated
that puts chills in you.

Walking down a path
does not mean it goes places.
It might just dead end.

Wintertime’s windows
will open up once again
as time does prevail.

Behind a clowns smile
might be tears of a river
hidden with makeup.

When window shopping
some are stricken with sadness
from all they’re wanting.

A simple smile shared
can make another happy
and bounce back to you.

Morning brings sunshine
even if it is hidden
with clouds only seen.

With a bird chirping
there is a song in the air
that sings of blessings.

Jesus gives chances
to grow beyond what we see
if we will love Him.

Someone’s sheltered life
might only prevent learning
if they’re too sheltered.

Ones counting minutes
can lose focus on right now,
for it fades from view.

Wonders of seasons
show us pages of turnstiles
connecting their sights.

Limes from some lemons
is just a mere metaphor
to make good from bad.

Meandering thoughts
can find themselves lost in time,
far from destination.

Belief without sight
is faith that God will provide
what we really need.

Maybe is stated
as an indecisive thought
not knowing for sure.

Summer brings swimmers
a way that they can cool down
and also sunburns.

Swinging gates of time
will open and close with time
while displaying choices.

A mind that wanders
could find itself in a maze
and losing what’s there.

Holding in anger
can make you as dynamite
waiting to explode.

Lines on a roadway
display where that we should be
just as the bible.

Many lists are made,
but often they’re not followed
due to laziness.

Mornings Breath

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

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
understood.
Use those time frames
you’ve been through
to make better
life for you.
Lose your passed days
helter-skelter
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

Dandelions
blossoming
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.
Dandelions
discovering
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.

Haiku
for June 7,  2014

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.

Make That Journey

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you have been doing well.  Judy and I have gotten
back into our daily lives.  Milo is feeling better now since
the trip to Texas.  He got sick at my moms house due to him
deciding to eat some of my moms grass.  He eats it every
once in a while up here,  but it must be a different texture.
I would prefer him not to eat grass,  but all dogs will do it
from time to time if they have a tummy ache,  bored or just
in a mood to irritate their owner LOL.  I do keep an eye on
him,  because dogs will often get worms from the grass,  so
we always keep tabs on how he is acting and eating. He
and his little brother Benny are enjoying the summertime.
I think Milo likes our new car better than our old Mazda,
but neither him or Benny are happy with how hard it is for
them to get in it LOL.  The car is quite a bit higher off of
the ground than our Mazda Protege was.  Milo has figured
out he can jump in the floorboard and then hop up to the
seat,  but Benny is still trying to jump up from the ground
to the seat and he succeeds every once in a while hehehe.
I’m hoping he learns from Milo how to get in.  Maybe in
time!  Well,  Judy and I just got back from town.  We went
to WalMart for some groceries and then to Subway to get
us each a foot long.  Neither of us felt like cooking hehehe.
The weather up here has been fairly nice.  Last Monday
there was a tornado that set down in Houlton,  but it was
only an EF 0 and it only messed up a few trees.  Nobody
was hurt.  We got a lot of freaking wind though out here
8 miles away in the boonies LOL.  I took a few pictures
of the storm clouds.  Right now it’s 73 F degrees.  There
was a frost warning for early this morning and a freeze
warning for Saturday morning.  I’m sure the farmers were
not happy about that.  Tomorrows high is supposed to be
around 79 F degrees,  but the temperature is supposed
to drop back down to the lower 70’s and mid 60’s for the
highs for the rest of the week.  You never know what the
weather is going to be like,  almost the same as many
places LOL.  Though we do know that when the snow
ceases falling it’s time for the rain hehehe.  At least now
we have a vehicle that is not so low to the ground with
tiny 13 inch wheels to combat the snow with :).  Yeppers,
this Rogue has 16 inch wheels and is much higher off of
the ground.  It makes it a lot easier for Judy and I to
get in and out of.   I guess it’s time for a different topic.
So,  what else is going on around the Pearce’s Place?
The neighbors we had behind us or should I say in front
of us have moved and now there is a vacancy.  Paul and
his wife and kids have lived there long before we moved
up here.  It’ll seem strange not seeing the kids driving
their four wheelers out in the field.  Oh well,  I hope that
some good neighbors move in.  We have 2 other neighbors,
but they’re not too social.  No matter,  we have each other
and Benny and Milo.  I spend much of my time looking
for scenery to take a picture of.  I will often do a little
jamming on my conga drums.  As a matter of fact I did
another little video of me on the conga drums May 29th
last Thursday.  I carried them outside to play amongst
the dandelions and I must say I was pretty much wasted
after hauling them outside LOL.  I had to sit down and
grab a breather before doing a video hehehe.  I did one
video before realizing that the recorder had not come on
and so I had to do a second video.  That literally wore
me out ;).  I had to rest a little bit before bringing my
conga drums and all back in the house.  I’m not as young
as I used to be hehehe.  I can still move pretty quickly
on the conga drums though,  even with my arthritis and
aching bones LOL.  Of course that’s the only part of me
that can move that fast and it’s much more limited on
how long I can play than when I was younger :).  Oh well,
I enjoy beating on them.  I thank God for giving me the
many abilities that He gave me and also someone to share
them with.  Judy and I both love to take pictures hehehe
especially of the boys.  We enjoy just sitting in the room
together while we do our thing.  Yet,  we do like many of
the same TV programs so that makes it easy for us to
find something to watch except of course when there is
nothing to watch out of 250 TV stations LOL.  In those
instances we will find something else to do such as
maybe browse the net,  Facebook,  etc.  We’re not that
exciting hehehe.  Benny and Milo keep us busy quite
often.  They’ll get in their moods of wanting attention
and will pester us until they get it hehehe.  That’s OK,
we love them both and spoil them totally hehehehehe.
God has been good to us and He continually sends His
angels to help us when we are in dire need of a helping
hand.  He lets us go through what we need to go through
so as to make us stronger in future days.  Life is filled
with many journeys some good and some bad,  but they
are all a part of our growing.  Learning what to and what
not to do as lessons are learned and past turns to present.
Don’t get mad at God when things happen.  Remember,
He sees the greater picture and we only see a portion
of it.   We lose many loved ones in the flesh,  but they
are not gone,  but are found in the spirit.  They can be
with you no matter where you are,  because they’re not
confined by a fleshly body anymore.  If you’re right
with God,  you will be seeing your loved ones again
when it’s time for you to make that journey,  but if
you look closely now,  you just might see a glimpse
of them in life that comes your way.  Let them echo
their love in your life day to day.  Now I guess I need
to cease my rambling and begin searching through
what all 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 little
place of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may have found a
good title and now after checking I see that it hasn’t
been used yet,  by me of course LOL.  So here goes!

Make That Journey

Ventured highways
far and wide
need Lord Jesus
deep inside.
Don’t be found as
all alone.
Make that journey
greater grown.
Let those highways
that you see
be as journeys
great to be.
Don’t let sadness
wear you down.
Make that journey
blessings found.
Search for goodness
far and wide
and then let it
to reside.
For our journeys
daily true
need us searching
me and you.
Find the essence
of God’s Grace
and make that journey
to enlace.

So,  did that make any sense to ya?  I never know if it is
just me that understands it LOL.  It’s getting dark outside
and that means I might need to catch myself before I am
back in Rambles Ville hehehe.  I was going to put more of
my trip photos in this weeks stationery,  but decided to wait
until maybe next week or other and put in many of the pictures
I took this passed week.  I think you’ll like them if of course
you are ones that are receiving this in stationery style hehe.
If not,  than what I just said won’t make any difference to
you in any way shape or form  LOL.  So I guess I need to
start telling you what I tell you every week and that is,  I
wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,
but none are Christmassy this week hehehe.  I also wrote
once agin 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.
So now I guess it’s time for me to be searching for that old
sort of elusive off switch,  but not before I wish you a most
blessed day and a God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now to find that silly off switch.
I see ya you silly thing.  You’d think your hiding abilities
would have gotten better in all these years huh.  Hiding
under my tissue box only guarantees you will be seen,
being I have tons of allergies and your sort of rocking
the box LOL.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe :)

Copy or Print

Do you feel imitated
as an echo in time
with copy or print being
what’s yours and mine.
People will often days
take what they see
and copy or print it
in their history.
The lines found on faces
that display your style
others might find as
a reason to smile.
Yet there’s so often
what many don’t know
that copy or print is
just but a show.
Don’t let your lifestyle
to just repeat mine
for copy or print might
not be your time.

Seasons Hurry

Breezes blowing
in a flurry
time might seems as
seasons hurry.
Minutes ticking
found with passion
then at times might
seem to ration.
Seasons hurry
sometimes past
often leaving
shadows cast.
Looking surely
at each day
seasons hurry
each which way.
Yet they might just
seem slowed down
when old winter
comes to town,
but it moves on
soon to show
seasons hurry
melting snow.
Then as springtime
comes in place
seasons hurry
summers race.
Then the heat of
summers days
are found beating
sunshine’s rays.
Yet the seasons
hurry on
to display what’s
then and gone.

The Sight of God

Each day passes
showing true
the sight of God
in thereunto.
Here and there
from day to day
the sight of God
is on display.
Yet so often
ones won’t see
the sight of God
in history.
Many search on
daily true
seeking for their
favorite view
while not allowing
God to shine
in their lives
from time to time.
Sometimes our own
ways decided
are found as Lord
God divided.
Let Him Guide you
where you go
and the sight of God
will surely show.

Seamless Shadows

Times connections
far and wide
seamless shadows
are applied.
Often viewpoints
you and me
are without seams
which we see.
Yet there are those
times connections
not so seamless
in directions.
Seamless shadows
might be found
when we’re looking
all around.
It’s the smallest
things we find
that show seams
in each design.
Yet so seamless
shadows show
when we hurry
where we go.

Four Legged Shadows

With footsteps in time
they follow around
four legged shadows
with a clickety sound.
Their paws connecting
with toes on the floor
four legged shadows
are there evermore.
When we walk one way
they follow us true
to see what it is that
we’re gonna do.
Four legged shadows
of Milo and Benny
tiptoe behind us
with sounds a bit tinny.
They’re our two boys
of a four pawed design
four legged shadows
just walking behind.

The Length of Time

While looking one way
another goes by
leaving the length then
wondering why.
Thinking that one way
goes by too slow
while not perceiving
the speed it will go
often makes many to
wrongly perceive
what that seems slowly
is a time to achieve.
The length of time
is only our view
in how we perceive it
then thereunto.
Look for the moments
much greater in time
found as the length
inside of your mind.

The Day Fades Away

As the day fades away
it leaves but a sight
found a bit starlit
and moonlit and night.
The glimmers of daytime
are only displayed
as that of setting suns
own lemonade.
Pouring as colorful
scenic designs
the day fades away
as poetry rhymes.
Painted as sunshine
glimmering true
the day fades away
to a sweet orangish hue.
Then as the evening
grows much darker yet
the day fades away
to less of sunset.

Finding Blessings

Winds of worry
seem to blow
when we hurry
where we go.
Finding blessings
in our sight
might be journeys
thought not right.
Often pathways
that we struggle
are with our ways
that we juggle.
Seeking blessings
not our time
can become as
bad design.
Finding blessings
will come true
when the right time
is with you.

Heaven’s Glimmer

Days show clouds just
floating by
here and there
so very high.
Heaven’s glimmer
is found blue
behind the clouds
a wondrous view.
Then as nighttime
comes in place
heaven’s glimmer
shines in space.
Stars that twinkle
so divine
display moments
eyes can dine.
Seen as wondrous
nighttime’s dinner
is the sight of
heaven’s glimmer.

The Sounds of Night

When night is found
it gives a glance
of many things
that seem to dance.
Night will display
things that blow
the sounds at night
that come and go.
The sounds might scare
you half to death
causing you
to lose your breath.
Yet often sounds
that many hear
are just what’s heard
not very clear.
Often what the
night will share
is sounds we find
each day aware.
The sounds of night
are fears creations
that’s dark of nights
imaginations.

Haiku
for May 31,  2014

Today brings thoughts
that can come alive in time
if we allow them.

Serious thinking
can cause ulcers deep inside,
so find you some peace.

Lessons come sometimes
in form of some disasters
that we lived to tell.

Looks can be misread
for many can hide feelings
and show deception.

Not allowing truth
to live and breathe within you
can push ones away.

Allowing sadness
to become your daily life
will disallow joy.

Our limits in life
are often of our own choice
and not that of God’s.

Storms might bring sadness,
but with God there is hopeful
found as a rainbow.

Tomorrows  sunrise
might come with a few raindrops
that we need to live.

Beginnings are found
when endings are positioned
in their point and time.

The meanings of words
are often not understood
leading to anger.

Our unknown mishaps
might turn into some secrets
we think we should hide.

Searching for a smile
could find a few sad faces
that need help to smile.

Not letting hopeful
to live and breathe through Jesus
could find misery.

Knowing another
might not display as that great,
for we have secrets.

Timeless reactions
show others our emotions
through our escapades.

A letter of love
that is written with passion
could be good or bad.

Deep within nighttime
the stars glimmer with the moon
giving us some light.

A page of our life
is often found as dog-eared
so to remember.

A journey through time
might have quite a few speed bumps
to make us slow down.

Breathing in summer
gives a glimpse of sunshine
that’s followed by rain.

Tomorrows worries
could be just our imagination
making it much worse.

God Kept Us Safe

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have ya been?  I guess ya might of kind of noticed
that I didn’t write anything last Sunday huh!  Well,  the
reason for that was that Judy I and the boys took a drive
down southbound to Texas Monday May 12th to see my
family and friends.  We had quite an eventful drive with
our little car and its age LOL.  We lost a cylinder in the
state of Massachusetts and had to drive the rest of the
way through the Appalachian mountains hehehe.   Our
little car struggled each of the up hill climbs with some
sputtering,  but it made it to its final destination Texas.
My mom gave us her car and she used our car for the
trade in so she could buy herself a new car.  The Nissan
dealer gave her 500 dollars for the trade in hehehehe.
Our little red 1995 Mazda is now headed for destinations
unknown.  I’m gonna sure miss that little car.  I’ve had
it for 19 years and it’s spent over 12 years getting Judy
and I where we needed to go.  It was sort of  like part
of our family :).  Yes I cried as I kissed its hood and
said goodbye to it :).  Many memories have been made
in that little red car.  Judy and I have made many trips
to Port Aransas in it,  not to mention all of my many
drives I took in it before Judy and I met and also the
many that we took together.  Yes,  I know it was only
a car,  but it was with us from the beginning and it was
the first brand new car I ever bought and it might be
the last.  Judy and I are now the proud owners of a
2009 Nissan Rogue that we’ve named the Phantom
due to its color hehehe.  My mom bought herself a
new one.  Now we’re a family of Rogues LOL.  Mom
has a bluish grey one and we have our phantom white.
We enjoyed our visit with the many that we were
able to see.  I’m sad that my sister couldn’t make it
to my moms house before we left.  She said she was
going to come up Friday May 16th,  but she couldn’t
make it and my side and back were killing me from
my sleeping on the roll about twin bed that my mom
had set up for me.  Judy slept on the one that was
stable.  Plus Milo was getting sick due to what we
think was homesick.  He couldn’t seem to find him
a place to light.  Every time we let him out to go to
the restroom,  he would start eating the grass which
most surely didn’t agree with him causing him to
gag and wheeze along with throwing the grass up
and yet still insisting on eating the mess.  He has
eaten grass up here before,  but it has never done
him that way.  I read up on reasons dogs eat grass
and found about 3 causes.  1- he has a tummy ache
and that is how they deal with it.  2- he is agitated
and bored or 3- He’s just acting out.  I think it was
the number 2 answer.  He was agitated and bored.
The grass must of been a different variety than
what he is able to handle.  He has no trouble with
ours.  We’ve seen a few times that he has eaten
a little and it didn’t make him sick.  Those times I
was pretty sure he had a tummy ache.  All though
I do know to keep an eye on him,  because while
eating grass he could get worms from the grass,
so I’m always watching how he’s eating.  His diet
will tell whether or not he has worms or not.  Yet,
for now,  he still eats and is always wanting treats
which we only give him and Benny on special times
of the day when they’ve been good LOL and yes
they are most of the times pretty good boys hehehe.
Anyways,  back to our visit!  My sister posted that
she was planning on coming up Tuesday the 20th,
but Judy and  had decided we needed to get back
home and take care of my back and side as well
as Milo,  but we would of stayed another day if
we had known that she was coming to see us.  I’m
sad that I didn’t get to see my sister.  I love you
Peggy and I wish now that we would of hung on for
another day so I could of seen ya and given you
a hug.  Hopefully,  Judy and I will make it down
another day,  but the drive shouldn’t be near as
stressful as it was when we were driving our old
Mazda that limped to Texas on 3 cylinders hehehe.
You never know,  but if we do once agin come to
Texas,  we will not be driving straight through none
stop as we did this time.  Hopefully we will be able
to afford to sleep in a motel and not just stop in
the rest areas to grab a few winks.  Believe me,
that was not very restful.  We made it to Texas in
2 days and made it back in 2 days hehehe.  Now
that’s driving!  While in Texas we got to see my
daughter Jamye and granddaughter Sami.  That
was great.  I even got to see my grandmother in
the nursing home.  She’s 106 years old.  It was
so great seeing her.  She remembered me and
my mom which is grandmothers daughter,  took
our picture.  Grandmother smiled real big.  She
was like a second mom to me.  We had a nice
visit.  I also got to see my good friends which are
too many to name,  but here are a few though.
Robin F and her daughters Rachel and Sarah
and their children,  David and Sheila E,  Jimmy
and Tina C with kids Alicia and Hailey,  Ron
and Mandy at Century Computers and Gilda
and Kathy at LongBranch Dental.  We also got
to visit our good friends at Whataburger Huey,
Meka and Marlene.  I’m sure I missed a few
such as friends at Vansickle Baptist Church,
but the list has to stop here or I’ll never finish
this journal LOL.  All in all,  Judy and I enjoyed
our visit.  We were sad to have to leave,  but
life goes on.  We hadn’t really decided a length
of time to stay  We thought we might stay until
Friday the 23rd,  but it just didn’t happen.  With
my side getting worse and Milo seeming to be
getting sicker and we were unable to watch him
24-7 to make sure he didn’t eat the grass agin.
Mom treated us to I-Hop, Glenda’s restaurant
and of course to Whataburger :).  Milo fell in
love with Robins little dog Ginger hehehehehe.
It seems that the feelings were mutual :) being
Robin said that Ginger is still looking for him.
Yes Benny and Milo have been fixed hehehe,
but they still have feelings ya know :).  The
weather in Texas wasn’t to bad.  It was on the
cool side all the while we were there.  LOL I
think we may have brought a little bit of our
weather with us on our journey to Texas LOL.
I took 1000’s of pictures,  but was able to do
a bit of deleting of many repeats and blurry
pictures as well as pictures that were really
just of nothing hehehe.  I’ll put few of them in
the stationery so if you’re receiving this in the
stationery style you’ll see a bit of our trip down
south.  I’ll put a few more in next weeks journal
of our visit as well as many that I took on our
trip back home.  God kept us safe.  When our
little Mazda lost a cylinder we prayed that it
would continue on the journey and bring us safe
and sound to my moms house in Texas and
God held it together giving it the strength
that it needed to make each and every hill.
Our hills in life are often hard to climb,  but
with a little prayer,  you can find the strength
to overcome them.  We all have struggles,  but
through Christ we can withstand them.  No
the struggles will not just all go away.  Many of
our struggles are what that make us stronger.
Without a few struggles,  we remain weak and
do not grow,  so thank God for allowing those
struggles in our lives and for helping us when
we are too weak.  Don’t let your perceptions
of journeys lead you down bitter roads.  Find
the blessings in the miles.  Now I believe it’s
time for me to be taking a little trip on back
through all 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 like
to always call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe
I may have found a good title and now after
checking I see that I haven’t used it as of yet.
So here goes nothing :).

God Kept Us Safe

Our southbound journey
far and wide
God kept us safe
along the ride.
He was there each
mile and more
to keep us safe
each opened door.
God kept us safe
as miles went by
with Hands of Love
that seemed to fly.
Our little car
fought every mile
to carry us
another while.
God kept us safe
and our car too
to let us see
our Texas view.
The Hands of God
are strong enough
to carry us
down roads so rough.
He saw our hearts
and climbed inside
to go along
our southbound ride.
Now we’re home
and safe and sound
but our old car’s
not around.
God let it find
a place to rest
in Texas soil
the very best.
So our journey
northbound way
had a better
day to day.
A better car
to bring us back
so safe and sound
a clickety clack.
God still holding
fast and tight
as our each day’s
found in sight.

Ok so it wasn’t one of my better poems hehehe.
I just thought I would write a poem about our lil
journey LOL.   I wrote another one about our
drive yesterday.  It’s a little better than this or
at least I think it is :).  No matter,  I hope you
liked this one at least a little bit.  We’re home
now safe and sound.  Benny and Milo hopped
out of the car excited to be home.  You could
tell that they were homesick.  Now they’re both
back to their old selves.  They’re lying in their
doggie beds in-between Judy and I right now.
So it’s time for me to hush and tell you what
I tell you every week and that is I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more
poems,  yet none Christmas this week hehehe.
I also wrote once again 22 more haiku for all
of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope you find
a few of one or the other that you like.  Now
it’s time for me to be searching for that silly
off switch that may have gone in a coma while
we were away LOL,  but not before I wish
you a most blessed memorial day and God
filled week.  Ok,  so where are ya hiding at
ya silly off switch?  You’ve had over a week
to find a good hiding place.  Aw  come on now.
You can do better than that hehehe.  Hiding
behind my Mountain Dew can only says ya
wanna get caught hehehehehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku.
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe :)

Miles of Road

Roads of milestones
gather true
to show us daily
greater view.
Miles of road are
found to be
with so many
sights to see.
Even bumpy
roads of time
have some pleasant
things to find.
Journeys blessings
are well found
miles of road
to sight and sound.
Scenes God’s given
every day
on miles of road
in every way.
Look and see the
journeys kiss
that so many
often miss.

Dances of Dreams

Seasons remembered
of fishes in streams
are recollections of
dances of dreams.
Even the hillsides
of seasonal phase
the dances of dreams
are still in my gaze.
Found deep within me
those times I recall
are dances of dreams
from winter to fall.
Then that’s between them
is dancing around
spring then to summer
with dancing dreams found.
Glimmers of thought waves
roll then thereunto
as they go dancing
with each daily view.
Seasonal shadows
of dances of dreams
display their beauty
in many extremes.
Some found as mellow
and others not so
with dances of dreams
from raindrops to snow.
Even the clouds that
float over head
often are mellow
and then not instead.
The dances of dreams
are many times made
from what’s envisioned
as minds lemonade.
Sometimes as bitter
and sometimes real sweet
our dances of dreams
each daily accrete.
Let not the nightmares
of passed days affairs
to steal away dances
of dreams filled with prayers.

Place In The Sun

As clouds billow onwards
the day is then done
found as a moments time
place in the sun.
Down on the ground are
shadows recruiting
a place in the sun
that daylight’s disputing.
Painted as morsels
with stories well told
a place in the sun
from young unto old.
Many find bitterness
others find joy
a place in the sun
that heavens employ.
God gives us chances
to better our gaze
a place in the sun
to our future days.
Pages are written
with seasonal hues
a place in the sun
from our daily views.
Look for the goodness
of windows of time
a place in the sun
that’s filled with divine.

Dreaming The Mystery

Looking for magical
things clear to see
some are just found
dreaming the mystery.
Wonders so visional
from wanted ways
dreaming the mystery
brings its displays.
Often as wintertime’s
snow falling down
dreaming the mystery
lies on the ground.
Then thinking other
the raindrops will fall
landing on moments times
that dreams recall.
Dreaming the mystery
gives us a view
found as the chances
to see things brand new.

Moon at Night

The glow I see
a ball of light
is that of joy
the moon at night.
It brightens hearts
as it shows true
the glow so big
and sometimes blue.
The scenes at night
are shadowed phase
the moon at night
which gives its gaze.
Times reflections
find their places
on the earthly
scenic faces.
Some as tree limbs
swaying around
the moon at night
that eyes have found.
The scene then changes
with its sight
to dawn of day
from moon at night.

A Rhapsody

The words of many
are often heard
not so clearly
word for word.
A rhapsody
of times affairs
often says
our do’s and dares.
The words combined
into a phase
often gives
a bitter gaze.
So don’t let voice
to emulate
a rhapsody
that many hate.
You’ll find better
that ones hear
when you speak
words so sincere.
A rhapsody
not wrong but right
that’s found proud
to then recite.
Written essence
ones can find
a rhapsody
of peace of mind.

Mountain Roads

Travels southbound
mountain roads
found some patterns
bitter rose.
For with uphill
climbing true
our car sputtered
there and to.
It was gasping
for some air
on the mountain
roads up there.
It lost a leg
a cylinder
leaving three
to grunt and whir.
Our little car
then found the top
and coasted down
to never stop.
Soon the miles
had flattened flows
from the sight of
mountain roads.
Our red car then
found the end
Texas bound
around the bend.
Stopping then
within its way
to end its ride
from day to day.
It’s now found
to not return
to mountain roads
that twist and turn.
Another car
now surely goes
on those winding
mountain roads.

Words Mistaken

Things we say
and show in sense
words mistaken
seem immense.
This and that
of then and there
words mistaken
overbear.
Don’t let words to
be mistaken
that ones might just
then partaken.
Try to clearly
say so true
what you’re meaning
through and through.
Words mistaken
need to be
clarified
so ones can see.

Lingering Warmth

Warmth of summer
comes each day
replacing coldness
winters way.
Lingering warmth
finds the night
after evenings
sunshine light.
Every moments
timeless hue
lingering warmth
is me and you.
Finding favor
in the window
things we see
a slight crescendo.
Lingering warmth
from sunny skies
fills the nights
with great surprise.
Starlight scenes
with beckoned hues
lingering warmth
conveys its views.
Summer sunny
skies find peace
lingering warmth
with slight release.

Night Becomes Her

She looks with eyes
so dark and brown
and finds my eyes
a joyous sound.
Sweetest music
then displays
as her eyes find
future days.
Night becomes her
open eyes
as she fills me
with surprise.
Loving brown eyes
glimmer true
night becomes her
hitherto.
Each day dawning
she is seen
looking in
my eyes of green.
Night becomes her,
but she thrives
even as
the day arrives.
She’s my darling
honey pie
night becomes her
as blue sky.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce – Me :)

Haiku
for May 24,  2014

Clouds accumulate
when they’re preparing to rain
or just decorate.

Life is a surprise
that makes many to ponder
just about the bad.

Looks can be hidden
behind a cloud of makeup
not showing the truth.

Forbidden pathways
can cause curiosity
and lead to trouble.

Morning comes shining
whether the sun shows or not,
so look for its signs.

Meaningless chatter
will often push ones away
for it’s waste of time.

Inside of nighttime
holds the imagination
that many dream of.

While standing alone
you create multiple sights
for ones to deduce.

Being too clingy
can cause ones suffocation
and push them away.

The storms of our lives
will often bring us lessons
that we can live by.

The sight of sunrise
brings glimmers of beginnings
with each breath we breathe.

Four paws found running
lay down a path of footprints
that tell where they’ve been.

A birds own echo
will be heard across the way
not showing its perch.

As minutes tick on
our future becomes our past
with no turning back.

Making decisions
needs you to accept the truth
and change if it’s bad.

Rooftops only leak
when it’s raining or snowing
so fix them before.

Looking for starlight
might first find a few glimmers
of distant planets.

Lingering footsteps
find a journey through turnstiles
leaving their imprint.

Beyond what we see
is a place we imagine
while seeking its truth.

Believing in God
needs be done without seeing,
for He is present.

Ventures of many
end up on long dusty trails
leading to nowhere.

Facing the wrong way
needs you to decide to change
and find the right path.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
and
Happy Mothers Day to all the moms

It’s been a pretty un snowy week these passed days.  Yep,  the
snow has all finally melted away and I can see a few little buds
on trees awaiting to sprout leaves.  The grass is even turning
greener by the day.  Maybe soon,  Judy and I can make a trip
down south to see my family and friends.  The one thing that
we’re hoping is that our car can make it,  being that when we
do decide to come down,  we will be bringing Benny and Milo.
In any case,  we are taking it one day at a time.  The weather
up this way is quite nice.  A little rainy,  but there have been
some bright sunny days.  Right now it’s 64 F and partly cloudy
with 20 percent chance of rain.  The forecast for the week is
lower to mid 60’s with maybe a day or so of upper 50’s.  When
we do go down south I’m sure we’re gonna melt hehehe.  Ok,
so it’s onto another topic.  I’m hoping that I get a chance to go
fishing sometime this year.  The last time I went fishing was
in 2010 or so.  Yep,  I miss my old fishing bud.  Brian used to
live in one of the trailers near us,  but moved to Houlton a few
years ago.  Maybe one day soon we can head out to the lake
again and try to catch some fish.  Other than that I might set
my conga drums outside a few days this summer and do some
drumming videos :).  Benny and Milo have been wanting to
stay outside a little longer now days due to the nice weather.
Yet,  Benny is still always in search of a patch of snow to sit
in.  He simply loves snow,  but there is non to be found now
with the temperatures staying above freezing.  We still have
a few nights that it’s close to freezing,  even a few that are
below freezing.  Monday night is supposed to be around 34
degrees and my weather program shows that maybe by next
Sunday the nights low will be 27 F.  So,  you see,  the weather
is quite a bit different than that of down south hehehe.  Judy
fixed us some EGGO’s and sausage for breakfast so I had to
stop writing for a bit so I could eat.  She did like I always do
and fixed the boys a couple of sausages a piece for them to eat.
It’s looking like the sun is trying to peek out from behind the
clouds.  I opened the window in here to let in some fresh air
and Judy said she let down the screen on the front storm door
so to also let in some fresh air in that part of the house.  That
is one thing I miss being able to do during wintertime hehehe.
Can’t open the screen,  because we would freeze and maybe
even end up with it snowing in the house LOL.  I do love snow
though,  but it does tend to get old after the 3rd or 4th month.
Benny and Milo are lying in the floor sleeping right now after
us finally getting it through their tiny heads that they are not
going to get any treats.  They’ve both had 2 little sausage
links and that is enough.  If they are hungry,  there is dried
dog food in their food pans. We need to finish up trimming
them,  being we had to stop the other day due to our backs
going out and Benny and Milo getting fussy hehehe.  They
still have a lot of hair that needs to come off.  We’ve already
filled up 2 WalMart bags with the hair we cut off the other
day hehehe.  They look so much smaller when we cut their
hair LOL.  Hehehe Milo is snoring quite loudly,  but that’s
nothing new hehehe.  He starts snoring when he’s sleeping
sound.  Benny has begun snoring a little bit lately,  but not
anything like Milo LOL.  Milo has asthma like his dad :)
We both have asthma attacks time to time.  When he has
one I reach down to calm him down and relax him so he
can get his breathing under control.  He knows I am there
for him.  It’s a connection we have.  Benny connected
with me the day we brought him home from the airport :).
He rode in my lap and due to him holding his bladder
for over 5 hours in a crate on his flight from Missouri
to us,  he peed on me sort of marking his territory,  but
I’m sure not on purpose hehehe.  Ever since that day
he has found my lap as a sleeping spot.  If I pick him
up,  he will soon lay his head on my arm and go to sleep.
Milo has found here recently that he loves for me to
hold him as well.  Problem is,  they want me to hold the
both of them at the same freaking time and it’s not
possible for me to do comfortably hehehe.  Yes,  they
are spoiled,  but they are good boys.   They know when
I mean business by the tone of my voice.  I’m trying to
teach them the words that go with my voice so that I
don’t have to raise my voice.  Yes I do have a loud roar
and can scare the pants off of Bigfoot hehehe.  Hey,
my nickname is Animal ya know.  I have a big dog bark
which can make most dogs sweat LOL.  Ok,  so off of
that topic :).  The county road is busy today.  That’s
something you don’t hear much of during the winter
other than snowplows.  The roads are most surely in
need of repair due to ice heaves which have left many
holes in the roads.  They’ll almost jar your eyeteeth
out if ya still have em hehehe.  I’m looking forwards
to going picture taking to snag a few gems.  There’s
a lot to take pictures of up here.  Judy and I will ever
so often head out on a picture taking adventure.  We
both love photography if ya couldn’t tell hehehe.  God
surely new what He was doing when He put her and
I together.  We have our bad days,  but the good days
make it all worth while.  Nobody knows what is best
for us but God.  He allows many lessons to occur
in our lives as time moves along.  We might view an
instance as just turmoil,  but many times that moment
will bring ones together that otherwise would have
never found their paths connection.  Many will only
focus on the bad times and not open their eyes to
greater possibilities.  Don’t let the passed days of
sadness to live as your only sight.  Now with that
said I reckon I need to be taking my little trip back
through all that I’ve written here to that place of my
recollection to try and 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 lil place that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE.  It looks like I may have
found a title that I haven’t use already hehehehe.
Yep,  ain’t used it!  So,  here goes.

Comfortably

Living life
of destiny
many find
just you and me.
Thinking true
so many things
comfortably
the season brings.
Yet so many
never view
what in life
that’s really true.
Thinking life
is moneys gain
comfortably
to then attain.
Money isn’t
always good,
for some don’t
do what they should.
Not allowing
God’s Own Love
speak to them
from up above.
Comfortably
can be found
when your on
God’s solid ground.
Let His Son to
guide your days
comfortably
within His Ways.
Yes of course
some troubles find
places in
your time to time,
but you’ll have
His strength so great
to achieve
a better date.

Well,  I never said it was gonna be a good poem hehehe.
I hope you enjoyed my rambling of words and maybe even
the poem :).  I just heard the front door close and went to
check and saw Judy sitting on the front steps giving Benny
a hair cut LOL.  I guess Milo is next hehehe,  but He don’t
know it yet.  He’s lying in the floor next to me.  Judy just
came in saying Benny got away from her hehehe.  After I
finish writing I will help her.  LOL Judy was cleaning out
the car and found in the glove box the cars registration
for 2014-15 hehehe.  We registered it in February hehehe.
I guess I better finish up here and put those stickers on
our license plates LOL.  So,  it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you every week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,  but this week
I wrote 2 Christmas poems :).  I also wrote 22 more haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope and pray that
you find one or two of one or the other or both that you
like.  Now it’s time for me to be searching for that silly
off switch that tries once in a while to hide from me,  but
not before I wish you a most wonderful blessed week and
also a Happy Mothers day.   Happy mothers day mom.
I love you bunches and look forward to seeing you again
real soon.  Ya never know LOL!  Ok so where’s that
off switch hiding?  Last week he didn’t even try to hide.
This time it looks like he decided to hide behind my
nose spray and would of stayed hidden if he hadn’t of
got it to rocking back and forth hehehehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce
and Benny and Milo

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe :)

Fear of Shadows

Scenes in darkness
might expose
a moments time
that no one knows.
Fear of shadows
little light
can become our
greatest fright.
Sometimes shadows
are just that
maybe a dog
or a pussycat.
Often shadows
imitate
floating clouds
that we debate.
Fear of shadows
can become
your own chosen
beating drum.
By not letting
shadows fear
live as things
you think you hear,
you can find
some other clue
of what’s really
there to view.

Mirrored Sights

Ones reflections
that they see
might not be
reality.
Many only
view their sight
as a better
form of light.
Mirrored sights
are often seen
as ones only
made up dream.
Let the mirror
show you true
how you’re needing
change in you.
Don’t let fiction
live each day
showing ones
a liars way.
You might find truth
sets you free
being who you’re
meant to be.

Behind The Eyes

Within ones sight
the brain perceives
behind the eyes
what time conceives.
The inner thoughts
of day and night
might be wrong
yet might be right.
Behind the eyes
so many view
maybe falsely
maybe true.
The minutes soar
with seconds size
with the thoughts
behind the eyes.
Surmised thinking
might fall prey
behind the eyes
of yesterday.
For then was then
and now is now,
so look and see
what times endow.
Find the better
answered why’s
from the thoughts
behind the eyes.

The Garden of Time

With flowers blooming
colors shine
found within
the garden of time.
Then with ticking
time moves on
to another
distant dawn.
The garden of times
summers breeze
shimmers sunrise
rustling trees.
Time moves on to
leaves that sway
with fall colors
day to day.
Then as minutes
move along
the leaves all fall
and soon are gone.
Time’s awaiting
winters show
found within
some flakes of snow.
Falling displaying
there design
found within
the garden of time.

A Dreamers Eyes

As heartbeats sway,
a dreamers eyes
brings about
a times surprise.
Venturing sunsets
of where to be
a dreamers eye
will try to see.
The many thoughts
of hearts desire
a dreamers eyes
display a fire.
Burning churning
many things
what a heartbeat
surely brings.
A dreamers eyes
can sometimes find
a fragrant rose
in scents of time.
Due to flavors
what’s and why’s
some will find
a dreamers eyes.

December Days

While watching clouds
of whites and greys
I’m reviewing
Christmas days.
Thoughts that live
as white as snow
falling down
a steady flow.
December days
of passion view
are as Christmas
love so true.
Lights all lit up
here and there
December days
of when and where.
Many singing
songs of joy
December days
that I enjoy.
Peace goodwill
through God’s Own Son
December days
are number one.

Snow Footsteps

As summer ends
it gives birth a view
with that of cold winds
blown there and to.
Then in the instance
that snowflakes fall down
there are snow footsteps
made on the ground.
With indentations
in Decembers snow
there are snow footsteps
made to and fro.
Leaving my footprints
mailbox and back
seeming to look like
a white railroad track.
Marking each footstep
with just but a phase
found as beginnings of
December days.
Christmas gets closer
as each day goes by
with the snow footsteps
that my feet apply.
Yet now is springtime
with summer to come
with me just dreaming of
white snowy fun.
With my snow footsteps
walking in phase
dreaming of Christmas
in December days.

Mornings Story

In the dawn of day
life breathes a sigh
sometimes found
hello goodbye.
Mornings story
many read
a simple sentence
all they need.
Words are found
in wind and rain
some to lose
and some to gain.
The story starts
with its own cue
mornings scenes
of newest view.
Displayed moments
certain scenes
might be as
some rushing streams.
Speaking phrases
little roar
as the stream
is shore to shore.
Mornings story
brings a place
that can give
a smiling face.
Seen with passion
of its glory
there are sights of
mornings story.

Many Miles

Traveling forwards
ahead with design
many miles gather
from their time to time.
Thoughts as tread marks
journey on
from time to time
another dawn.
Many miles flourish
with just a gaze
found as a whisper
of traveling days.
The scenes we pass
with miles we tread
leave their footprints
in our head.
Certain momentums
display so real
many miles
we see and feel.
Our other senses
come into play
with many miles
from day to day.

Sunflowers

Summer is coming
with sunflowers bloom
found in the essence of
May unto June.
Scenes so transfixing
are found oh so bright
as some sunflowers
are seen by daylight.
Changes awaken
in summertime’s sun
showing how weeds are
sunflowers done.
Bringing in colors of
yellow to see
displayed as beauty
for you and for me.
Sunflowers glimmer
in daytimes sunlight
then go to sleep
in the darkness of night.

Haiku
for May 10,  2014

Life is confusion
filled with many surprises
that we may not like.

Looks of a blind man
might just display their insight
and not their vision.

Many will stumble
as life displays surprises
they weren’t ready for.

Placing a marker
on a path you have walked on
will help you get home.

Morning brings sunrise
with its many forms of life
that some never see.

Spring becomes summer
as it fades from the picture
with summertime’s heat.

A bumpy roads life
leaves many parts of itself
in broken down cars.

Lives of a turnstile
will often just wilt away
leaving memories.

When counting seconds
the minutes might seem longer
than they really are.

Links to another
might be found in strange places
we never had thought.

Words of a liar
are often found not believed
even when they’re true.

The winds of winter
blow as a cold breath of air
that freezes your mind.

Receiving a kiss
can be a great thing to have
unless it’s a lie.

The names of people
do not determine their lives,
for it’s just a name.

Many seek true love
at the wrong times and places
and end with despair.

Learning who you are
gives better chances for growth
if you don’t give up.

Beyond what we see
are often just illusions
that our mind perceives.

With death there is life
which begins a new journey
that’s never ending.

Many seek better
when it’s right before their eyes
and they walk away.

Numbers are numbers
and do not decide knowledge
for some never learn.

Allowing a flower
to be crowded by some weeds
could suffocate it.

True love finds its time
when the dots are connected
in the right patterns.
