A Giant Tumble Weed


Hello my friends

So, how have ya been? We’ve been doing fairly well. The weather
up this way is showing signs of winters sneak peek hehehe. Been a
tad cool the last few nights. Not bad though. In the mid 40’s the last
couple of nights. That’s Fahrenheit to you that do only Celsius hehe.
45 Celsius would be about 113 Fahrenheit. Rather warm for a night.
Hehehe I can’t help it, I’m a thinker. So what else is happening up
this way hmmmmmm? Well we’re still getting rain from time to time.
It’s supposed to rain late this evening and tomorrow. Then it looks
as if we might have a few non rainy days until Friday gets here hehe.
Well on a different note, Judy said they are getting ready to open up
the new diner for business pretty quick. A few of the employees have
been going there and cleaning up and organizing it off and on when
they were finished with their duties at the restaurant. I know Judy
will be happy to be back at the diner as well as the rest of them, but
they may find it as a tad temporary gladness when they see that they
will have to relearn a lot of different methods due to a bit of change
in the new diner compared to the old one that burned. Oh well, I’m
sure it will all come out in the wash. I’ve gotta call a mechanic and
get an estimate on how much it will cost to fix our cars exhaust. I
think the O ring has blown, but cannot tell for sure being I cannot
get down under the car to see it, but the car is rather loud now due
to it. Hope it don’t cost too much. Ain’t got much to spend on it.
I was hoping to save a bit so Judy and me could drive to Texas so I
could visit my family and friends that I haven’t seen since Dec 2007.
Plus we both love to take pictures and are looking forward to the
many miles of scenery. Keep us in your prayers. Oh yea, Judy’s
doctor upped her dosages of insulin and meds in the last month
and it’s also taking a toll on finances. That’s life as we see it up
here hehehe. Oh well, God will provide a way to deal with it.
I am looking forward to seeing my doctor for my very first visit.
It took almost 3 years to find a doctor up here that was willing
to take me on as a new patient. I’ve had to just deal with the
pain mostly except when it got too bad at times and I had to go
to the emergency room and I don’t have to tell you how much
that cost plus the fact they only patch you up and prescribe you
temporary meds and say see a doctor. Oh great, see a doctor!
Well my hip has gotten to the point it makes me almost cry at
times due to the pain, but I refuse to go back to the ER for a
temporary fix that only last a day at most. Ok so it’s off of my
darned ailments hehehe and onto a hopefully brighter side of
life. I guess I am going to empty our pool of water and air and
put it up for storage until next year unless I see a few days in
the future that look as though they will be warm enough to
soak and wade hehehe. Right now though, it’s a tad too brr.
The nights pretty much cool it down and forget getting into
the pool right after it’s filled LOL. We get our water from
an artesian well. The water is bloody freezing cccccccccold.
Thank God for hot water hehehe. If it weren’t for hot water
I think Judy and I would just stay dirty LOL. Let’s see, hmm
what else is going on up this ways? Well to be honest, it’s
pretty much the same old same old world of the Pearce’s 🙂
We still spend a lot of time on our farms in FaceBook and
we also still watch all of our favorite TV programs hehehe.
We like a lot of the reality programs. Not much else to say
except thank you God for watching over Judy and I as we
face each and every brand new day together. I feel sorry for
those that do not believe in God. I have had a life in the past
that I turned away from God and only sought my own will.
It was a lost and lonely life. Entering each day without His
structure or grace. Yet I do believe He never ever actually
took His Hand off of me. He just allowed me to endure what
all I needed to go through as a teaching. I learned quite a
lot through my struggles. I learned that life is much better
living it for God and allowing Him to guide me as He will.
I still screw up, but through Jesus I am forgiven and move
on to the next moment. Life can become a hurricane if you
spend it going against your better judgment. God gave us
a conscience to help us decide. Sometimes our pathways
will lead to stepping over someone. Is that really necessary
or is there a much better path to follow? Ask God for help.
He will fill your mind with answers if you let Him or better
yet, wait a moment and take another look. Well it looks
as though I have gone a rambled once again haven’t I hehe!
Yeppers, I get to rambling and my thoughts turn into a giant
tumble weed blowing across the page. I guess it’s time for
me to take my little venture back through all I’ve written, to
that place of my recollection to try and find a good word or
phrase that might work as a good title for today’s brand
new poem hehe. So it’s away I go to that place that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I ran across a good
title just a bit back in my rambling hehehe. Now let’s see
what if anything at all I can do with it LOL. Here goes..

A Giant Tumble Weed

A sight or sound
in echoes past
might seem like
it moves too fast.
Times we find
we think we need
might be a giant
tumble weed.
Rolling across
our thoughts in time
remembering all
we thought sublime.
A giant tumble weed
of course
might be seen
as unseen force.
Things remembered
fastly done
might be found
as needed none.
Yet we might
just plant a seed
within a giant
tumble weed.
A tumble weed
of timeless scenes
as reds and greens.
Sights and sounds
of times gone by
tumble on
with how and why.
God gives tumble
weeds of time
so to paint
His Own design.
Time rolls on
with Will and Way
leading to
another day.
God’s Own Will
in days ahead
are what all
He’s surely said.
Found in times
of simple seeds
are the sights
of tumble weeds.

I hope you enjoyed and understood that poem hehehe. Also I hope
you enjoyed my rambling 🙂 Yep, I’ve been told that I think way
too much hehehe. Oh well. If I could shut it off at times it would
be nice. Yet, my thinker continues in the weirdest places hehehe
I’m sure if Judy had good hearing she would be able to hear me
making up and reciting poetry in the bathroom hehehe. That’s
how I’ve been as far back as I can remember. Even back in my
wilder days. The poetry was not as it is now, but none the less
it was written hehehe. God has kept me alive through every one
of the happenings in my life that should of killed me. He has a
purpose for me and I am doing my best to fulfill that purpose 🙂
I’m sure there is much more to it than that, but for all I know,
I might be doing it everyday unknowingly hehehe. Well I guess
it’s about time for me to be doing a search for ye old off switch,
but before I do that I need to do a few other things like firstly
telling you what I tell you every week and that is I wrote some
more poems and yes 3 of them are Christmas poems hehehehe.
I also once again wrote 22 haiku for all my haiku lovers. OK
so it’s time to say farewell, but not before I wish you a most
wonderful week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now to find that off switch that loves to elude me hehehehe.
Found it hiding in a wadded up paper towel. Gotcha hehehe!
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems
10 and 22 hehehe 🙂


Now is the moment
that then does conclude
when many seconds
of time will protrude.
Now is a picture
painted displayed
found as a moment
that then might of made.
Now is a fraction
of times ticking course
headed on journeys
sometimes full of force.
Now is a minute
that hours have found
as they go marching
to their higher ground
Now is as flavor
tasted and seen
of which to many
is found as offscreen.
Now paints a picture
from yesterdays times
sometimes as echoes
of wondrous designs.
Now is a moment
that we can’t replace
so take a moment
to truly embrace.

Your Decisions

We might wish
for different views
when our time
we did not choose.
Doors will open
leaving pages
in the doorknobs
timeless ages.
We have moments
that we find
that might show
a scenic sign.
Take a look
at all you see
and then choose
a good degree.
Sights and sounds
might intertwine
into your own
time to time.
Let the minutes
coming around
show you what that
does astound.
Look more closely
as you view
all that God has
given you.
Your decisions
you decide
can make better
of the ride.

Move On

Many a day
comes and goes
leaving the rhythms
how it flows.
Many a second
ticks thereunto
leaving us minutes
of which we’re to view.
Moments will come
within but a time
leaving us chance
for a better design.
Many a day
will come and go
with the rain,
sunshine and snow.
Times will conquer
as the minutes
go away.
It is our own
that remembers
thens disease.
Not the sickness
health’s transpired,
but the wrongness
that’s desired.
Leave the then
of yesterdays
as a portion
to be gazed.
Learn the lessons
from the view
and then move on
to the new.

In The window

Now in the window
is see all the change
within the seasons
now that arrange.
Summer is leaving
with its dusty trail
painting a way
that time does compel.
Fall will soon be
the seasons delight
painted as echoes
of each day and night.
Then surely winter
will come and display
white snow a falling
upon Christmas Day.
Now I can fathom
the seasons prelude,
for it has reasons
for things to conclude.
Passionate moments
come and then go
giving us way
to winters first snow.
Leftover minutes
in times dusty trail
shows us the weather
that’s found in its sail.
Now in the window
I can sort of see
how time is changing
oh so wonderfully.

Your Hurry

Long and awaited
many desire
wanting so often
each raging fire.
Often ones wantings
lead them astray
as they go chasing
their every day.
Needing a harness
many might find
when they go wishing
for there own design.
Sometimes a hurry
might leave a mess
found in a moment
chose to transgress.
Plowing through now
on into the fire
might find you trouble
from all your desire.
Let not your hurry
to take all control,
for it might surely
destroy every goal.

Christmas That I know

Soon will be
a sight and sound
Christmas time
as truly found.
Soon will show
the time that’s seen
found within
my window screen.
White snow falling
in my view
landing building
Soon the sequence
that is found
will be white snow
all around.
Soon the pictures
that I take
will be found
with more to make.
More of billows
snows entire
as I warm
beside the fire.
Looking outside
I will see
Christmas morning
given free.
Yet of course
the snowy scene
I’ll remember
Scenes of beauty
day to day
will be filled
a snowy way.
Leaves a glistening
in the breeze
with the white snow
on the trees.
Christmas moments
found with peace
will be what that
will release.
Astounding sections
in the snow
are of Christmas
that I know.

How I View

Within my mind
I can see
times so white
and Christmassy.
Christmas lights
of red and green
filling up
most every scene.
Within my mind
I can make
seasons greetings
to partake.
Things remembered
will survive
within my mind
as now alive.
I can see my
singing beside
the Christmas tree.
I can hear
my cousin singing
of all that Santa
Claus is bringing.
Within my mind
I can go
where there is
a ton of snow.
I can make my
dreams come true
within my mind
of how I view.

Search Within

Many oceans
in the sky
flow as waves
in by and by.
Every cloud
of white details
might have signs
of blooming sails.
Many blue skies
held in place
might display
in our own face.
Often oceans
in a day
bring alive
a certain way.
Many found as
wanted wishes
counted as
a million fishes.
Blue skies sought
for moments scenes
you might not
know what it means.
Look for oceans
in the view
maybe beauty
seen askew.
Search within
the things you find
and then seek
some peace of mind.

Unto A New Dawn

In future meadows
there might be a view
leading to somewhere
that leads back to you.
In future hillsides
there might display
ways found concluding
to you then one day.
In future moments
time might arrive
at many thresholds
seen by your eyes.
In future breezes
the wind may blow
giving you pushes
in which way to go.
In future seconds
time might tick on
leading to minutes
unto a new dawn.

Summertime’s Beauty

In summers mornings
I find a breeze
blowing so gently
the flowers and trees.
This summers morning
comes with a view
found with some clouds
in a bright sky of blue.
It’s with the beauty
of it’s own disguise
that I see pictures
up in the blue skies.
Summertime’s mornings
bring unto me
things filled with passion
for my eyes to see.
I see the bending
of all of the trees
as they are blown
by summertime’s breeze.
I smell aromas
of flowers that bloom
found in summertime’s
morning to noon.
Then in the evening
I see each day
summertime’s beauty
some magical way.

for Aug 7, 2010

Lifetimes of judgment
build and destroy the future.
Our choices matter.

Ones often complain
if right now is not their choice.
See what God’s choice is.

Many a meadow
will prosper oh so greatly
and others will die.

Lessons are breezes
blown in by many moments
that we may not know.

Lives found in torment
might be seen without hopeful.
With God there is hope.

Some levers are pulled
only to destroy another
and without conscience.

Today marks a time
which leads into another
as yesterday’s gone.

Let a leaf to blow
as the wind carries it on.
Watch it as it floats.

Angels in Heaven
are disbursed when they’re needed
as God answers prayer.

Leftover moments
fall sometimes into today
when our time ran out.

Planning a journey
needs be done with a good map
and a real good friend.

Poor sighted people
aren’t always without vision.
Sometimes it’s within.

A rose is a rose
as it does its thing in spring
and on through summer.

Rivers of people
will flow daily throughout life
without direction.

Aimlessly morning
comes with its own beginnings
with chances in place.

Found in wintertime
are the thoughts of mere snowflakes
falling to the ground.

Placing a pebble
on a rock of timeless scenes
leaves little to see.

Often ones answers
are the things they do not want
and so they choose not.

Bringing a blessing
is sometimes done without thought
that is sent by God.

Filling up a hole
might conclude to destruction
if done just in vain.

Sometimes our shadows
will show what that is truthful
through our flesh disguise.

Knowing a Christian
does not make you one also,
Nor does going to church.
