From The Beginning


Hello my friends

Well,  the hands of the old clock on the
wall tell me that today is mine and Judy’s
wedding anniversary,  so I’m getting an
early start on writing this.  This passed
week has been a fairly peaceful one.  Not
much has gone on.  We were going to a
drive down to Baxter State Park,  but as
we checked on the internet on the Maine’s
fall foliage page,  we noticed that they’d not
yet begun to change,  but it looks like this
week might be prosperous.  We’ll keep an
eye on the foliage maps as well as our eye
on what that is outside and find the best
time to take a trip down south for some
fall pictures.  Judy and I went up north of
us to Presque Isle last Wednesday for her
doctors appointment and there were very
few signs of fall colors.  A few,  but not
what we’re looking for.  Judy is fixing to
head over to her brothers house to do a
little clean up and what not,  but she’ll be
home this afternoon in time for her and
I to go out to eat at Grammy’s in Linneus
Maine.  We’ve never been to that place.
We hear that the food’s good.  No matter,
we’ll most surely enjoy it.  Yeppers today
is our 15 year wedding anniversary.  Can
you believe it?  She’s put up with me for
15 years now LOL.  So tell me now,  what
is a 15 year anniversary?  Aluminum LOL.
Judy has done quite a few more paintings
and I’ve done quite a few more picture
poems.  I guess one could say we spend a
lot of time doing stuff LOL.  It seems that
Judy and her sisters,  daughters and kin
have all gotten the painting fever and now
every week they come up with a different
challenge to paint.  This week it’s owls 🙂
Last week was Harvest such as farms and
trees and fruits and vegetables.  I’m sure
I’ll be doing many more picture poems LOL.
Judy wants me to do up about 150 of them
so she can put them in a book.  I have one
or two from the beginning that I want to
redo such as the pictures,  but the rest are
good to go.  Also due to me starting this
picture poetry epidemic,  I’ve been writing
a few more poems every week than the
norm LOL.  Hey,  I can’t help it that I’ve
got a busy mind.  The weather up this way
has been sort of bouncing around from
the 50’s to the 60’s with a few 32 degree
nights.  Once again,  that is Fahrenheit 🙂
not Celsius or Centigrade.  While Judy’s
over at her brothers house I might take
the boys out for a little field trip if I’ve
got time before Judy gets home.  I fixed
us a couple of pancakes,  1 egg and 2
sausage links a piece for breakfast.  I
was just going to fix 3 pancakes and 2
sausages a piece,  but I figured today is
special,  so pancakes, eggs and sausage
was the menu.  I enjoy cooking for us.
We take turns doing the cooking.  She
made us omelets for breakfast yesterday.
Yeppers,  The Pearce’s Place is still
filled with love.  Both Benny and Rocky
just came in here and started staring at
me LOL.  Judy couldn’t take them with
her,  so they’re stuck with me hehehe.
No matter,  I’m sure they’ll enjoy it if I’m
able to take them for a field trip.  They
both get ecstatic over thoughts of that.
Benny wanted to go out in the field so
bad yesterday that he even disobeyed
me,  but I only gave him a light tap on
his hind end and he headed back to the
house.  So,  I’ll try and hurry this along.
They were just now raising a ruckus
in the living room LOL.  Benny was in
a playful mood and pestering Rocky 🙂
which I might add was a change of pace.
It’s usually just the opposite with Rocky
pestering Benny hehehe.  Anyways they
both followed me back in here jumping
up on me all the way and I gave them
both a treat.  Now maybe they’ll settle
down for a bit so I can get this dad gum
article written LOL.  Life is good.  It
has a few aches and pains within it,  but
all in all,  life is good.  Judy is getting
around a bit better now after getting
her cortisone shots in her knees.  Now
when we go down to Baxter State Park
she will be able to walk around with me
and take pictures more than she did
last time 🙂  God has been taking good
care of us.  LOL I just felt the eyes of
a dog staring at me.  Rocky is sat right
behind me,   just staring a hole in my
back hehehe.  Thank You God for all
that You have done for us and all that
You will surely do.  We praise Your
name always through Your Son Jesus
Christ.  Now I believe it’s time for me
to be looking back over all that I have
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 found
a decent title not far from the beginning
of my rambling LOL.  Now to see if I
can do anything with it.  Here goes.

From The Beginning

Scenes within minutes
found within days
from the beginning
was time changing phase.
Pages from a journal
written in time
from the beginning
were rhythm and rhyme.
Each with our patterns
connected from afar
from the beginning
was God’s shining star.
He brought together
our lives to be true
from the beginning
with me unto you.
Our lives have blossomed
much more yet to see
from the beginning
to our anniversary.
I love you my darling,
I love you my wife
from the beginning
and all of my life.

Happy 15 year anniversary Judy <3

So there ya go.  I hope you enjoyed all of
my rambling and maybe even the poem 🙂
Yes,  I can honestly say,  that my life with
Judy has been the best of years.  I hope and
pray that my daughters marriage is filled
with many blessings as well.  Judy and I
send our love.  I hope to meet Brennon one
day soon.  He seems to be a great guy and
he most definitely seems to make you happy
and that makes me happy.  You deserve to
have happiness in your life.  I’m sure he will
make Sami a great step dad.  So what else
is there to tell ya?  Hmm,  well my mom is
going through old pictures and sending me
the ones that are of me and hopefully she
can find some of my old friend Pepper. She
was my first dog,  but sad to say I was not
as good a friend to her as she was to me.
I guess my immaturity was at play.  She
was still my best friend.  She would run
along with me when I went on my bike
rides.  Anyways,  she still lives within my
heart and mind.  I hope my mom can find
a few pictures of her to send to me.  That
would surely be the greatest gift.  OK,
before I start the waterworks hehehe
I guess I need to tell you what I tell you
almost every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
10 more poems with an added 7 due to
the picture poems LOL.  Nope,  none
of them are Christmas poems,  but 1 of
them is about Benny hehehe The Snow
Dog.  1 of the poems is a birthday poem
that I wrote for my daughter last week.
Also 🙂  there is a cute little Halloween
poem in there that kind of sort of ups
the count to 18 poems,  but it’s only just
but a few lines hehehe.  Also I wrote 22
more haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there.  So I hope you can find 1 or
2 of either or both that you like.  Now
it’s time for me to begin searching for
that hardly elusive off switch,  but not
before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now
before I make that search for that
off switch,  I’m gonna stop and wait
till after Judy and I have come back
from our anniversary dinner.  Hello
again,  We’re back and we had a nice
dinner,  but had to bring much of it
home being we couldn’t eat it all 🙂
So it looks like we have food for
a midnight snack or whatever you
wanna call it LOL.  I took a few
pictures there and to and a couple
of Judy and I.  One of Judy when
we got to Grammy’s and then one
when we got home.  We’re full.  OH
and yes I took the boys out for a lil
field trip and they had a blast 🙂 OK,
now where are you ya ornery little
off switch critter?  I see ya there in
the midst of my Cheese Puffs LOL.
If the bag wasn’t crinkling every
time you moved I might not of seen
you hehehe.  Maybe next week 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

P.S  A link to Judy’s new book as at
the end of the journal along with the
others.  Enjoy 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+7 and 1 tiny one 🙂 and 22 hehehe 🙂

Mountain View

The sun found setting
in the sky
leaves a painting
with a sigh.
Evenings portrait
painted well
with a story
times to tell.
The sun’s a glimmer
seen to fade,
a mountain view
the evening laid.
Seasons changing
make more clear
the scenes we see
and things we hear.
The sun found setting
leaves a trace
timeless moments
sights can taste.
Scenes that once were
skies of blue
are then a faded
mountain view.

Lighthouse Of Blue

The seas with waves
create the view
within the sight,
lighthouse of blue.
The oceans shore
is just a time
the lighthouse sits
with its great shine.
The lighthouse of blue,
life’s guiding light
in darkness of waves,
is the greatest sight.
The lighthouse keeper
gives peaceful array
while his light shines
to brighten the gray.
The seasons evade
that wonderful view
that bright light at night,
light house of blue.

Pigtails Swinging

A little girl swinging
in the moonlight,
stars brightly shining
into the night.
With her little puppy
just smiling with love
watching the little girl
below stars above.
Pigtails swinging
in the nights breeze,
ropes on a branch
and a seat in the trees.
The evenings journal,
written in the moon
seems as a dream
with starlight attune.
Pigtails swinging,
teddy bear in hand
dreams of the magic
from the sandman.

The Starlight Hours

Beyond the night sky
the starlight will play
with hours counted then
unto the day.
Stars as the seasons
become as a stage,
displayed as twinkles,
the turn of a page.
The starlight hours
are counted and seen
sometimes a passage
found in a dream.
Life becomes minutes
and seconds to find
within the starlight
and every design.
Scenes come alive
with Heavenly flowers
found in the night sky
the starlight hours.

My Birthday Girl

Today’s a great day
that the minutes transpire
a life of a moment
a candle afire.
Your age is a number
that time frames display,
while in a whisper
breathes of today.
My birthday girl
has grown up to find
the essence of love
and greatest of time.
Now with her own child
she grows even more
to find all the blessings
that God has in store.
I love you my daughter
and wish for you true
to have a great day
Happy birthday to you.

Windows Of The Soul

Sights found misdirected
are often very true,
for even misdirected
there’s truth within the view.
Windows of the soul
are scenes that many see,
for they are found so often
a place in you and me.
Life is often patterned
after what all that we’ve seen
then within our windows
becomes a raging stream.
Clueless with the minutes
that our windows open wide
and leave within our moments
lessons then applied.
For within every heartbeat
is a time to take its toll,
but God is there to guide your
windows of the soul.

Now is but a fraction
actions then applied
sometimes seen redundant,
times that coincide.
Pictures of a painting
found upon a wall
might be an abstraction
of winter or of fall.
Even as the minutes
tick on their own way
some might find redundant
what many do or say.
Yet it’s just perception
of how so many view
that becomes redundant
in what that ones will do.
But the term redundant
is not always the same,
for it is so often
a new time to attain.

A Mirrored You

Often when we’re angered
it’s just because we see
someone with a pattern
that we do not agree.
Sometimes though that person
might be a mirrored you
with your own reflection
and all of which you do.
Many times our anger
will start within ourselves
something we remember
that lived upon our shelves.
A mirrored you of moments
that time has magnified
that of which you’re seeing
in others now applied.
Lessons come as dewdrops
sometimes as the rain
and a mirrored you perception
might not live in your vein.

An Autumn Drive

While on a drive
through yesteryear
the scenes of time
become more clear.
An autumn drive
that’s so inlaid,
trees with colors
that God made.
The rolling wheels
of timeless view
an autumn drive
displays its hue.
With many colors
dawn to night,
an autumn drive
is such a sight.
The scenery seems
to come alive
amidst the time
an autumn drive.

On The Edge

Taking pictures
standing still,
on the edge
it might appeal.
Gradient scenes
changing fast,
on the edge
a shadow’s cast.
Heavens venture
opens wide
on the edge
with time applied.
Leisure moments
might be made
on the edge
a bit mislaid.
Often scenes are
better found
on the edge
with solid ground.

Ripples In Time

Seen as a ripple
sometimes a wave
ripples in time
are found every day.
Often a memoir
a turbulent time
is just a ripple
found in design.
So many ripples
in waters of age
might be a moment
found upon stage.
Just but a second
seeming as more,
time’s but a threshold
needing an oar.
Found in the waters
some rocks might shine
as many lessons
ripples of time.

Paradise Bench

Amidst the colors
of leaves so bright
there is a bench
that sits so right.
It is a moment
suspended in time,
a paradise bench
that is so divine.
Ones that sit there
will see the display,
the colors of fall
in a magical way.
Paradise bench,
a wonderful hue
displays the times
of then thereunto.
A place to rest
in seasons great sight
paradise bench
each day unto night.

Political Vibe

Trivial misconceptions
will often grow too large,
a political vibe of action
might then take full charge.
Not paying mind to needing
and losing track of view,
a political vibe of action
might be less than true.
Standpoints situations
of seasons in the sand,
a political vibe of action
might not be so grand.
For with the pages turning
and all that many see,
a political vibe of action
might end in debris.
Trivial minutes focused
can become pain applied,
so look for the importance
and not political vibe.

The Snow Dog

Silence of winter
is snow falling down
white fluffy flakes
collect on the ground.
We’ve got a small dog
that just loves to play
in the sunshine above us
and snow every day.
Yes he’s the snow dog
so fluffy and white
found on the snow mounds
when they’re in sight.
Our little doggy
just watches in wait
for the snow season
to come and create.
White snow to play in
and enjoy the view,
but now he’s just dreaming
of snow to accrue.
During the summer
he might sit on a log,
but during the winter
he is the snow dog.
He then is sitting
on snow mounds of white
found in the daytime
and also at night.
He is the snow dog
our little loving boy
as he is bouncing
and filled full of joy.

It’s Pointless

As troubles come
and seasons appear
truly it’s pointless
to just shed a tear.
For with the moments
and with the days,
time is found moving
sometimes as a haze.
Truly it’s pointless
to let ones inside
and create anger
that you cannot hide.
Look for the glimmers,
look for the shine
in all the blessings
from Lord God Divine.
Search through the days
and also each night
and find the joy
of God’s Holy light.
For yes it’s pointless
to just mope around,
when you could be then
upon solid ground.

Witch Of Green

Bewitching Themes
of Halloween
are found to be
yellow and green
as the times
of creepy rhymes
might define
a witch of green.

Photographer’s View

Scenes in a meadow
with colors so fine
display the pictures
a photographer finds.
Found in formation
of colorful days,
a photographer’s view
is a wonderful gaze.
Seen is his shadow
with camera in hand
the photographer’s view
of where he may stand.
Some houses blending
into the photograph
painting a picture
of future and past.
Then as the minutes
leave their timely trace
the photographer’s view
shall not then erase.

Semblance Of Time

Train tracks to nowhere
yet somewhere it seems
the semblance of time
is found in a dream.
Hope of a turnstile
to be found in a time
like a train going nowhere
yet still seeks to find.
Many stand  on corners
and don’t even try
as the semblance of time
is how they comply.
The facts of a moment
are train tracks of time
leading a train down
to somewheres rewind.
Often misconceptions
are the scenes many see
as semblance of time
with a skeleton key.

for Oct 1,  2016

Designs of a place
are often the reflections
of a persons soul.

Autumns occurrence
is as a colorful theme
created with leaves.

Life with a flower
is as aromas of time
that is poetry.

With clouds floating by
there are chances for thunder
with a little rain.

Dispersed imagery
paints a picture of the mind
with dreams and nightmares.

Life in a nutshell
might need to be cracked open
to show its beauty.

Clowns found parading
might be headed to no good
or maybe parties.

Pondering issues
can open a door for fear
and what that can be.

Below the starlight
holds a magical kingdom
that your dreams can find.

So many moments
that we find within our lives
are only windows.

Trivial desires
can be either good or bad,
for desires tell truth.

Photographers dreams
can be a mere photograph
that eludes their time.

Cherished emotions
are the pleasures remembered
that keep us going.

Discolored water
leaves the thoughts of pollution
or maybe Kool-Aid.

Change needs some action
within your thinking patterns
and the things you do.

The class clown of life
will maybe display humor
to hide what is real.

Beyond what we see
are things that truly exist,
but in their own realm.

Placing a grade
on the lives of many
can be very wrong.

Sometimes a mirror
only shows what we’re  wanting
and not what that’s real.

The age of beauty
has no number upon it
as life shows appeal.

A word that’s spoken
becomes an action in place
so take care what’s said.

Now is just a time
that in time will be the past
as minutes tick on.
