Something Drastic


Hello my friends

So, how’s your weather? Ours is rather warm compared to
the years before. Hehehe when I speak of warm, I don’t mean
Bermuda shorts warm LOL!! Nope, not quite that warm, yet
we have not seen any of the below zeros that we saw last year
and the year before. Of course right now at 7:09 AM it’s -10
F degrees. Nope, that ain’t the wind chill hehe. Thank God
the wind ain’t blowing much. Well, Judy seems to still have
a remainder of the flu bug in her. I though seem to have lost
it and now feeling my old worn out self as normal :). I have no
idea what normal is though LOL. For me, it’s,,,,,,,,, well let’s
just say it’s not anywhere near a human norm hehehe. Nope,
I don’t seem to be human in many cases, but I do have a heart.
Yet my heart is twice the size of a normal heart LOL! Guess
that means I have that much more love in me huh :)! So what
else is there to talk about??? Well, Judy and I are waiting
for Monday to get here so we can put some money down on
heating oil. Our tank is almost empty, but we got our income
tax check and it’s more than enough to fill it, thank God :)!!!!
We may have to be saving for a new car or the semblance of
one, being our little Mazda is showing signs its demise. I hope
it holds together until we can afford to get another one. This
weather up here is hard on cars. Especially the gaskets and
seals in the motor. I’m sure God will provide. Ok, so what
else is going on up this way? Judy and I are still playing those
blasted farming games hehehe. They at least keep me from
going completely bonkers. If I had friends to visit or places
to go, then I would much rather do that, but I guess the farms
will have to do :). They are kind of fun! They sure take up a
lot of my time hehehehe especially Country Life!!! Oh well, it
seems I have nothing but time to kill LOL. I do spend a lot
of time talking to God and asking Him questions. I also find
myself talking to my dad from time to time as I am sure God
let’s him listen to me. My dad even answers me on occasions
through things I remember that he has said to me in the past.
I will often run into a thought burdened puzzle and be found
wondering why I am here or why things are the way they are
and it seems I can hear my daddy saying, because God has
a plan for you, yet it’s out of my sight range at the moment.
Yes God puts us in places that we will do the most good and
yes we often will think, what good am I here? The answers
are in the hands of time. Look back on some timeframes of
your life and you might see where by being in the right place
you were able to help someone smile by a gentle word or a
tender hug. Sometimes the reasons are a little more in-depth
and we will never see the meanings. It’s then we must act on
faith and trust that God has a reason. God also expects us
to use our common sense to distinguish what we need to be
doing and what we need to cease and desist. Pray about it
before you do something drastic. It may mean the difference
between good and bad or life and death. Now with that said
I reckon it’s time for me to be taking my little journey back
through all of my rambling words to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for today’s brand new poem.
So it’s off I go to that place of recollection that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE! I hope I can find a good title. Hmm,
let’s see, I think I found a good title. Now let’s see what I
can do with it hehehe if anything LOL. Give me a prayer!!
Here goes…

Something Drastic

A moments notion
might display
something drastic
in your way.
You might think
you can’t afford
something drastic
now aboard.
Yet Lord Jesus
gives a plan
which to help us
to withstand.
Sometimes meanings
fall from view
when the moment’s
sad and blue,
yet the blessings
that we find
will be moments
on our mind.
Something drastic
might be done
so to tell ones
of God’s Son.

Hehehe I almost signed the poem 2009 LOL!!! It might be the
middle of summer before I actually begin signing 2010 without
having to think about it hehehe. OH well, how’d you like the
poem? I hope you got the meaning out of it. I’ve found myself
in some wacky jobs in life, but in time found I was there to help
someone with their life. The funny thing is that quite a few of
the people were totally of a different world than me, but God
helped us to connect. If you find yourself in a strange situation,
then look to see if it’s something you need to get out of, or if
there is a purpose to your being there. Give it a prayer and let
God speak to your heart. Sometimes your conscience will tell
you all you need to know as God gave it to us to use as a guide.
Well, it’s -5 F degrees now. Wow, it’s warming up hehehehe!
It’s supposed to get close to 15 F degrees today. I might have
to dig out my short pants and suntan lotion LOL. Naw, I ain’t
that stupid hehehe. Maybe just the suntan lotion 🙂 hehehehe.
OK so now that I have done my silly talk, it’s time for me to
be telling you what I tell ya every week and that is, I wrote a
few more poems and haikus. I wrote 10 more poems and two
of em are wintry style Christmas poems. I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all my haiku lovers out there. Also, I forgot to post
a poem last week that I wrote for Judy. It will be the first in
the list :). With that said, I need to be searching for that old
off switch to cease writing, but before I do that I wanna wish
you a most wonderful week. Remember, Jesus loves you and
we do too… Now where’s that off switch hiding at?????????
Sheesh, can’t ya hide better than that hehe??? I can see ya
quite clearly hanging onto that icicle hehehe. Let it go so I
end my rambling :). See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems.
10 + 1 and 22 🙂 hehehe

You and I Dear

The Earth moves
with sudden winds
gathered as
two best friends.
Times of trouble
come their way,
yet they’re friendship
doesn’t sway.
Many portholes
let in pain
that sometimes
just seems insane.
The Earth rotates
as we stand
cheek to cheek
while holding hands.
We mustn’t let
the fuel of time
become bitter
in our mind.
You and I dear
surely so
need to always
let love grow.
Forgiving spirits
need to live
deep within more
love to give.
Judy I love you
more the same
than the day
you took my name.
Yes we’re troubled
you and I,
but we’ll make it
by and by.
God will give us
truly so
all the tools
we need to grow.

To Judy Pearce
From Bill Pearce

Maybe The Ventures

Ventures of burden
somehow will find
ways to remember
deep in the mind.
Momentous segments
that you’ve wished away
somehow will find a
way to display.
So when those burdens
come into view
this is what surely
you then must do.
Search through the burdens
to find then somehow
things you’ve forgotten
that lessons endow.
Maybe the ventures
might have a phrase
that are the teachers
for future displays.

Seeking For Catnaps

Nodding for slumber
our sleepiness finds
some of us still there
with weary minds.
Some find their slumber
as easy as pie,
yet ones like me
will try and then try.
Slumber evades me
as each day protrudes
leaving me sleeplessness
as slumber deludes.
Nodding to dream land
so many will fly
deep in their sweet dreams
in their by and by.
Yet I am always
the same as I do
seeking for catnaps
to get me on through.

In The Distance

Passionate flavors
painted snow white
seem to be shining
within the moonlight.
White snowy billows
layered and found
as the ice crystals
that lay on the ground.
I see the passion
and feel it inside
that which the white snow
never could hide.
It seems to glisten
as flavors of time
as the ice crystals
make their design.
Snow in the distance
and here thereunto
displays the passion
in moonlight so true.

Hurry The End

Ones in a hurry
will maybe not see
what that a blind man
might simply be.
The essence of seeing
is not always found
when in a hurry
to just get around.
Sometimes the hurry
will make you blind
leaving you emptiness
all that you find.
Take a little time
to look at the view
from moments journey
that you’re headed to.
Ones in a hurry
may be unaware
that all their hurry
is headed nowhere,
For all that hurry
is not your best friend,
because it will only
just hurry the end.

Oil Painted Pleasures

Once in a painting
of oil colored strokes
ones can be displayed
as old fashioned folks.
Time withered trees
with bits of cuisine
laid out as beauty
of brown unto green.
Once in a painting
things can procure
as they are painted
so blissful and pure.
Time can be mounted
upon an old rock
displayed as shadows
that somehow will talk.
Oil painted pleasures
can help one survive
deep in the threshold
of brushstrokes alive.
Words that are written
as oil painted time
become all the beauty
for someone to dine.

Don’t Miss The Blessings

Seen in a blessing,
found in a phrase
many will happen
to help us somedays.
So many people
will look and not see
all of the blessings
that are given for free.
Minutes will gather
and count to themselves
all the dust covered
blessings on shelves.
Often our blessings
will be as a clue
given by many
to help me and you,
yet oh so many
will just walk on by
missing their blessings
and never to try.
Don’t miss the blessings
that God gives today,
or they just might then
fade fast away.

Making Corrections

Language is spoken,
not always heard
as we distinguish
word after word.
Many times wording
leaves things unsaid
as it is entered
inside of the head.
Often ones wording
will leave a disguise
that just infuses
ones with demise.
Language of many
may be sincere,
yet it’s our hearing
that’s maybe not clear.
So take a breather
and try to reword
making corrections
on what someone heard.

I Remember Laughter

Christmas is living still
deep in my past
as all the memories
went by too fast.
I remember smelling
the dinner mom cooked
and all the presents
I searched and I looked.
I remember mornings
of Christmas entire
feeling my threshold
with childhood desire.
I remember hanging
the lights on the tree
as it was daddy, mom,
Peggy and me.
I remember seeing
my train set of time
going around the tree
within its design.
I remember laughter
and songs full of joy
when I was much younger
and just a little boy.

It Is Sunset

The hint of sunset
glimmered to view
then it was passed on
to something new.
Nighttime was coming
with sincere to find
to follow sunsets
time on my mind.
All of the pictures
of sunset that glowed
display inside me
as my minds bestowed.
Sunsets will gather
together agin
to display journeys
of where the days been.
Nighttime will follow
to put it to rest
so again sunset
can one day attest.
Mornings will blossom
and give us a view,
yet it is sunset
that says it is through.

Our Pointing

Pointing at another
does not look away,
for it leaves fingers
pointing your way.
Sometimes our vision
of pointing so true
doesn’t see nothing
but what all you do.
We might need to look
at our own reflection
and maybe do then
a little correction.
See if our pointing
needs to be done
to our own judgment
sun unto sun.
We may be seeing
what we think’s insane,
yet it might really be
the greatest gain.

for Jan 30, 2010

Having is useless
if what you have is empty
and without purpose.

Lonesomes formation
comes from actions without friends.
Take time to make friends.

Jumbled perceptions
are visions of confusion
planted in the mind.

Laid in a turnstile
are the footprints of decades
awaiting to be.

Into a journey
walks the thoughts of deception
when without a map.

Mumbling people
find their words just misconceived
due to unclearness.

Minutes are posted
that may not fall in sequence
of now and before.

Linguistic theory
is that others can perceive
in the right language.

Looking in mirrors
might show the wrong reflections,
so look deep inside.

When you are counting,
let the numbers formulate
to find the answers.

Pleasure can be found
when in search of honesty
and losing the lies.

One sees a shadow
and the glimmer of themselves
of which that follows.

Mornings awaken
with the blessings of each day
that many don’t see.

Many heads will turn
with sight of an accident,
yet who’ll try to help?

A loan is trouble
if you cannot pay it back.
It destroys friendship.

If you have enough,
then give without expectance
and friendship will thrive.

I is a wording
which so many overuse
when it’s not needed.

Friends are the cavalry
when troubles come a knocking
so take care of friends.

Part of a sermon
leaves the story misconceived
without true meanings.

A long time ago
paints the picture of many
with all that they are.

Heaving an anchor
lets life float to better shores,
yet do with caution.

Timetable minutes
are the situations seen
as many just count.
