Making Plans


Hello my friends

It’s been a peaceful week this week up here,
but we can see that Florida isn’t having such
a peaceful time.  We’ve been keeping tabs on
Irma as well as Jose that is right behind it and
it makes me fear for all those that are enduring
the hurricanes or have gone through the hell.
We are still in prayer for all those that were hit
by Hurricane Harvey.  Makes me glad that we
live away from all of that hehehe.  Although we
do have our share of cold weather,  snow and
blizzards hehehe.  So,  what’s happened around
here this passed week?  Well,  Thursday,  Judy
and I went to town and got us some ice cream
at Houlton Farms Dairy.  Before we did that
we went to Walmart and did a little shopping.
Then later that evening there was supposed to
be an Aurora Borealis,  but we couldn’t see it
from our house so we took a drive up north of
us a bit and we caught a mild glimpse of it,  but
it was too dark then to get any good pictures of
it.  We’ve decided that the next time that we hear
that the northern lights are peaking,  we’ll head
out before it gets dark LOL.  The boys enjoyed
the car ride we took up passed Caribou Maine.
Friday,  Judy went to her daughters house to
show off her new scarves that she created and is
selling.  While she was gone,  I did a lot of work
in the house such as carpet cleaning,  then when
I was done,  I went outside with the boys and
took a few pictures of the cloudy skies and a few
of the boys 🙂  I did a little weed eating while
Judy was gone.  I was one tuckered dude after
I got done doing all of that.  Crawling on the
floors scrubbing the carpets did me in basically
LOL.  Yep,  crawling on my knees is not what
I do very well.  I’ve still got a lot of scrubbing
yet to do,  but I got the carpets looking a little
better.  Our grandson (Christian) came home
with Judy Friday.  He spent the weekend with
us and his mom just now came and picked
him up.  We always enjoy having him come
and stay with us.  We spent many hours last
night watching funny Youtube videos and
trying not to laugh or smile LOL.  We also
watched a new episode of Dragonball Super
at 11 PM last night (Saturday).  Judy and I
are making plans on driving to Texas to see
my mom and others sometime next month.
We’ve yet to make a definitive date though.
Anyways,  life goes on.  Not much else has
gone on around the Pearce’s Place.  God is
still looking out for us.  We’ve got many
angels protecting us.  Thank You God for
all that You have done for us and all that
You will do.  Now,  I believe it’s time for me
to begin my search back through all of my
rambling 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 just
a few lines back and now after checking
I see that it has not been used yet,  so used
it shall be 🙂  Here goes nothing…

Making Plans

Minutes ticking,
time goes on
finding right ways,
finding wrong.
Life’s a story
written in time
some making plans
for things to find.
Changing of faces
finds many scenes
some as an ocean
and some as streams.
When making plans
the times might be
found as a moment
that we shouldn’t see.
Allow the blessings
of now and again
to become lessons
from where we’ve been.
Seek the doorway
that time withstands
and learn much more
by making plans.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and maybe
even the poem.  I know the poem’s not one of
my best,  but they can’t all be winners LOL 🙂
It’s been fairly cool up this ways here lately.
Today’s high was around 63 F and the low for
tonight is supposed to be 49 F or more to the
point early Monday morning.  So I guess I’ve
told you about all there is to tell you except
for what I tell you every week and that is,  I
wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,
I wrote 10 more poems with no extras ,  but
2 of them are Christmas poems.  I also wrote
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there.  I hope you can find 1 or  of either or
both that you like.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to begin my search for that hardly elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,  where
is that silly off switch hiding this week LOL?
Hmmm,  searching around the room in places
it’s known to hide hehehe.  LOL I see ya you
silly thing.  Hiding behind the DSL modem
was a good choice,  but it did require you to
lay flat and still, which is something that you
have never been known to do hehehehehehe,
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Peace With Time

Signs of times
with stormy seas
can become
a peaceful breeze.
As the days
and weeks go by
peace with time
is God’s comply.
Maybe a second
or maybe more,
peace with time
comes in the door.
Life as hurricanes
storming through
shows in a moment
what time can do.
Yet then a blessing
from Heaven divine
brings a rainbow
peace with time.

So Faraway

Distant thoughts
of times gone by
leave us dreaming
till the day we die.
Scenes of pleasure
and scenes of pain
then so faraway
our thoughts retain.
Those memories
of days long gone
are still in existence
living on and on.
A certain view
of an open door
of another day
you still explore.
That’s a portion
of our driving force
scenes remembered
that’s now remorse.
Another moment
of another day
lives in our dreams
so faraway.

A Breath Of Life

As lifelong roads
of a scenic days
become a time
of which we gaze
the days and weeks
of every hue
will turn the page
from green to blue.
The trees of life
that surely grow
become the sights
from high to low
and the rivers
found as friends
become a journey
time transcends.
A breath of life
that God gave free
is there for us
to daily see.

Swinging On A Star

When troubles come
and steal your dreams
swing on a star
of heavenly scenes.
Let yourself fly
up high in the clouds
and find some peace
in the heavenly shrouds.
Life can be gruesome
and life can be sad,
but there can be peace
in lessons you’ve had.
Swinging on a star
of a nighttime inlay
can open the door
to a much better day
Find you a moment
a time you remember
swinging on a star
of a passionate ember.
A time that was happy,
a time you recall
swinging on a star
over the tallest of all.

Timeless Desires

Links to emotions
wintertime’s ways,
the past shows scenes
of old fashioned days.
Life as a snowflake
and building of wood,
timeless desires
so firmly withstood.
Found as memoirs
of white snowy scenes,
timeless desires
still display the means.
Glittering brightly
as Christmas divine
as the snow billows
within its design.
Leftover memories
that still have a breath,
breathed as emotions
that never found death.
They’re still displaying
an old wooden style
as timeless desires,
a Christmastime smile.
Timeless yet living
as passed days surprise,
Christmas of essence
that moments contrive.
Seen as the echoes
that winter acquires,
found as blessings of
timeless desires.

A simple thought
of memories
can make them as
the deep blue seas.
Horizons found
to show so well
a time and place
with great detail.
As the waves
of our desires
the stage is set
with many aspires.
A dream come true
or wished to be
horizons of
a door and key.
With all the scenes
of now and then
horizons found
remember when.
Our lives might be
a certain hue
searching for
a sea of blue.
As every thought
is said and done
we search for more
each rising sun.
The horizons can
most surely be
a dream come true
that now can see.

Season Of Bliss

A ride through town
on Christmas nights
displayed the signs
of colorful lights.
A seasonal setting
that time bestowed
became a blessing
down the road.
A season of bliss
with heart and soul
brought a flavor
greater than gold.
Driving watching
lights bright sheen
red and yellow,
blue and green.
Life’s recorded
as a page defined
a season of bliss
with Christmastime.
With seasonal tunes
on the radio
playing those songs
from so long ago.
A special feeling
comes into play
while riding around
those Christmas days.
A wonderful feeling
gives that special kiss
on a Christmas drive
a season of bliss.

Driving Through Life

Searching for pathways
so timeless to view
your wheels might roll
just a little askew.
Driving through life
on an old country road
might display your sight
as some troubles unfold.
Look for the blessings
that come into play
while you are driving
in a lost sort of way.
Driving through life
often has a surprise
as blessings from God
in an Earthly disguise.
Don’t let your journey
to see only strife.
Look for the blessings
driving through life.

Mystic Moon

Nights of blessings,
nights of peace
show a journey
a heart’s release.
A mystic moon
within the night,
through the clouds
it shines so bright.
It gives itself
a moments heart,
a time and place
it sets apart.
With the moonlight
comes a sound,
a song of echoes
all around.
A bird so peaceful,
a singing loon
is heard amidst
a mystic moon.

Heart Of Life

A destination,
a scenic sight
displays true
the heart of life.
Scenes of motion,
scenes stood still
become a dream
that can fulfill.
Allowing minutes
to find a place
the heart of life
with saving grace.
God’s own beauty
displayed to see
becomes a path
for you and me.
It’s the blessings
that heal the strife
found within
the heart of life.

for Sept 9,  2017

The life of seasons
is an echo of the past
that many look for.

Time is a venture
that comes in place as minutes
that pass as hours.

Storms will come and go
leaving memories of time
that teach and give pain.

Lost in a whirlwind
you might find yourself confused
at which way to turn.

Doors to tomorrow
might look like the passed doorways,
but change is within.

Like a hurricane
time can expose weakness
in all of our strengths,

Found in a circle
directions will be seen as
left becoming right.

As life loses breath
it finds yet another form
that lives forever.

Within a forest
might be a another world
that’s hidden from sight.

Seeking for true love
you might find a few people
that are filled will lies.

Various people
hold their self worth above others
even when they are less.

Sometimes a rain cloud
will act just like a large storm,
but be only fake.

Disturbing moments
can be rainbows in disguise
as the time passes.

Change can be scary
as life exposes moments
that you’re unprepared.

What’s on the outside,
might be different within,
so read the pages.

Someone’s neediness
might be due to hindering
of their younger years.

A flowers blossom
will become as many seeds
as time goes its way.

Excitement of life
often comes in many views
that live within us.

Confusion guides life
as prayer can become doorways
to find direction.

Beyond our vision
is a life of mystery
that can be greater.

Sudden conclusions
can expose our ignorance
in the days ahead.

An oceans harbor
can be hit with hurricanes
that redesign it.
