The Minute


Hello my friends

The weather has been not too bad up here
in New Limerick Maine.  I did some more
work on our steps yesterday.  I did a few
bits of touching up on the railing such as
adding a brace adding a bit of flair to it 🙂
I think it looks a lot better now,  but it will
need a few more coats of paint being that
the wood has been sitting outside in the
weather for many years and is just soaking
up the paint,  but it shouldn’t take but one
or two more coats LOL.  Then I might do
a little more work on it such as decoration.
LOL our landlord is gonna freak.  I don’t
think he realizes that I used to do a lot of
carpentry in my past.  Anyways,  I just did
what he said he was gonna do 4 years ago
and never did.  So,  now we feel a bit safer
on the steps not always afraid we’re gonna
fall off them and onto the oil tank breaking
something important like our bones hehehe.
Yeppers,  I think  the railing looks nice and
Judy likes it too.  Now I need to get to work
on the top edge of the porch and start with
putting the aluminum stripping back on
that must of fallen off when our landlord
was moving it to our house.  No matter 🙂
That is why I bought us a 16 foot extension
ladder LOL.  It has done good doing all of
that stuff.  It has taken away much of the
fear of heights that I had acquired back in
or around 1999 or 2000.  Can’t really recall
for sure.  I was helping my boss up in the
sucker rod racks at work and I forgot that
I had my bifocals on and when climbing
down I stepped off 6 foot above the ground
and fell head first into 1 inch steal rods and
ramed 3 of them into my skull leaving 3 1
inch holes in my skull that the doctor had
to staple and stitch back together.  So  I
reckon ya can see why I cannot remember
the exact day LOL.  Anyways,  that fall
was what that made me scared of heights.
Before the fall I climbed all around in the
trees and anywhere up high 🙂  Next topic.
Well,  Judy and I just got back from the
store (Walmart) to be more exact.  We
were needing a few groceries and Judy
even ordered us some pizza from Pizza
Hut.  We haven’t had pizza since maybe
June or so LOL.  Mmmmmmmm good 🙂
We took the boys for a field trip Thursday
and as usual,  they loved it.  They love
for us to take them out in the field and
let them run wild.  The minute either of
us mentions field trip or a ride in the car,
Benny starts screaming and Rocky starts
making circles that would make me sick,
just spinning around and around LOL.
So what else has gone on around this
place?  Well to be honest it has been on
the peaceful side.  Oh yea,  I got Judy
and I some life insurance.  It’s not much,
but it will cover our cremation and all,
though we’re hoping that is many years
down the road LOL.  It doesn’t hurt to
be prepared.   We do live and die.  That
is part of the process ya know hehehe,
but hopefully I’ll be able to irritate you
with many more rambling words and
poems before that day arrives.  Well it
looks as though through all our struggles
God has given us a hand when needed.
We might not see it at the time,  but He
is always there along with many angels
that watch over us day in day out.  So
we’ll be OK.  I reckon it’s time for me
to begin my search back through all
that I’ve written here to see if I can find
a good word or phrase that will work 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 believe I may
of found a decent title about a third of
the way back in my rambling.  Now to
see if it has been used yet.  LOL there
are versions of the phrase,  but not exact,
so used it shall be today.  Here goes…

The Minute

Life gives a time
that many worry
seeking for life
within a hurry.
The past begins
as time moves on
just like winds
of right and wrong.
Leaves will blow
into ones yards
just like snow
on Christmas cards.
The minute churns
to a phase
as time turns
from distant days.
Look on ahead
as chances grow
as minutes are fed
with what we know.
Use the lessons
to change within
losing transgressions
to again begin.
Find the beauty
of life within it
as you continue
within the minute.

Well,  there ya go.  Yes I know,  it might
be a rather confusing poem,  but I hope
you liked it.  I also hope you enjoyed my
rambling.  Hopefully it didn’t bore you
too much hehehe.  Anyways,  there’s not
much else to tell you.  Not much change
in Judy’s brother Ricky.  The poor guy
really needs your prayers.  I don’t think
he knows that there is anything after we
die.  In other words,  he’s never been too
spiritual if at all.  So I am hoping that
his mom and dad will be there to guide
him through when that day comes.  OK,
that’s about all I have for you aside from
what I tell you every week,  which is,  I
wrote a few more poems and haiku…..
Yeppers,  10 more poems and 22 more
haiku for the haiku lovers out there 🙂
I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either or
both that you like.  Now I believe it’s
time for me to start searching for that
hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish you a most wondrous blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you
and we do too.  Okie dokie now,  where
can that dad burned off switch be trying
to hide this time?????  Hmmmmmmm,
that looks odd.  My K2 meter has never
wobbled LOL…  Ohhhh,  I see ya you
little whippersnapper.  Trying to find a
little space between my nose spray and
my laptop mouse.  A tight squeeze LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Field of Desire

Planted as hopeful
food for a time
a field of desire
can live in the mind.
Thriving in existence
of a fruitful plain
a field of desire
gives much to attain.
Pouring as a dream
waters of emotion
a field of desire
just like an ocean.
Waves come crashing
as thoughts of time
a field of desire
a moment can find.
Found as a dewdrop,
but so much more
a field of desire
can open a door.
Unlocking destiny,
unlocking dreams
a field of desire
can be many things.
Heavenly blessings
seasons to shine
a field of desire
can help you unwind.
Losing your sadness
and losing your pain
in a field of desire
to find life to gain.
Scented with growth
of yet another age
a field of desire
upon a new stage.
Heavenly thresholds
give much to admire
with all the blessings
in a field of desire.

Mindful Rocks

Our mind’s as a river
that pours into places
leaving us memoirs
found within faces.
Mindful moments
 as rocks of ages
textured in lifestyles
found on our stages.
We are the actors
the ones many see
as mindful rocks
with time’s destiny.
We might not know
that what all we do
could affect everyone
and not just you.
We need to take care
of our daily actions
as mindful rocks
with our interactions.
We’re like a river
with mixtures of style
seasons ones see us
a brief or a while.
So let your guidance
to show ones the cost.
Let them learn from
your mindful rocks.

Fire in The Sky

Evening’s own sight
becomes such a scene
a fire in the sky
as a sunshine dream.
It leaves in existence
some sights for the eyes
with clouds all lit up
in the evening skies.
As a fire in the sky
becomes much more
it opens windows
for ones to explore.
It’s a timeless view
that moves with ease
highlighting mountains
and highlighting trees.
Creating formations
of a heartbeat on fire
pouring into the sky
all its love and desire.
This is but a moment
of a timeless cuisine
that’s poured up above
as a skyline dream.
God’s Own creation
with colors so fine
a fire in the sky
as a sunlight design.
You might one day
come across such a view
as a fire in the sky
that lives on in you.

The Sights

Found with colors
of spring to fall
the sights begin
to make their call.
Immense scenes
of colorful sights
drift through day
and into the nights.
Seasonal glimpses
of dusk to dawn
the sights we see
that continue on.
Creating patterns
levels of time
the sights we see
that are so divine.
The seasonal views
that come and go
rain and shine
and winter snow.
So many sights
we might not see
but return within
our history.
They might display
in photographs
timeless seeming
as shadows cast.
Enjoy the seasons
days and nights
all the blessings
within the sights.

Day of The Moose

Looking outside
to the southern field
I saw some moose
that time revealed.
I watched a while
as they ate grass
a doe and its baby
with times to pass.
Life’s enlightenment
just like a dream
a day of the moose
in a wondrous scene.
Time passed quickly
as I watched a while
taking some pictures
as I donned a smile.
It was very peaceful
as it faded away
leaving me dreaming
of that special day.
The day of the moose
was wondrous to see
as I view pictures
of this memory.
That magical day
that became so alive
a scene so serene
how animals thrive.
I’m so thankful
God did produce
this time so divine
a day of the moose.

Many Details

Mind of a matter
riding the rails
brings many stories
so many details.
Hearing ones gossip
seeing their stride
so many details
show what’s inside.
A liars conquest
a scenic desire
so many details
might show a liar.
Travel with truth
as you travel around
discerning words
as not just a sound.
The rails of life
can be dusty but true
so allow for the facts
to live within you.
Truth is much better
than that of a lie,
for truth is revealed
as time goes by.
Facts over fiction
rides daily rails
so discern wisely
the many details.

Blossomed Flower

Long awaited
growth begins
seasons gather
in the winds.
Blowing seconds
found as hours
time displays all
life empowers.
Often minutes
become days
as seasons give
so much to gaze.
Changes come
and changes go
as we blossom
all we know.
Yet within us
we might become
a light so bright
just like the sun
while what others
can only see
is but only a
slight degree.
Let your light to
 become power
shining brightly
blossomed flower.

Water To Sky

Time’s but a ripple
a moment displays
scenes within scenes
of day after days.
The sky might seem
as water of blue
while times carry on
doing what they do.
You might see life
in a lake’s reflection
as water to sky
and its connection.
It might even seem
as a magical style
formed out of time
to give you a smile.
With water to sky
and all thereunto
there begins a path
of a similar blue.
Even the ripples
can form in the sky
as seasons of change
when clouds fly by.
Look up and view
each scenic display
and let them to melt
your sadness away.
Find then the peace
that moments apply
found within time
of water to sky.

Dusty Roads

Times of lessons
paths we cross
can become our
daily thoughts.
Teems of life
within our quest
form our views
of east and west.
Even views of
other directions
have a way of
times connections.
Beginning to end
a dusty view
becomes a path
a choice to choose.
Living doorways
hinges squeak
dusty roads
we sought to seek.
They’re as time
within a bottle
as we’re driving
foot on throttle.
Find some peace
lesser of loads
as you travel on
dusty roads.

Blended Perceptions

Just like a flower
and just like a limb
time is a porthole
beginning to end.
Blended emotions,
blended with style
so often perception
discerns as a smile.
Not seeing truly
flowers that bloom
as we go onwards
so often out of tune.
Don’t let the sadness
and gloominess win
look for the flowers
and have a little grin.
Find you a moment
a smile come to be
blended in your life
right now you can see.
Blended perceptions
can become a dream
or a mere memory
of a magical scene.
Find you a place
of a heartbeat’s glow
blended perceptions
as flowers that grow.

Losing sense of humor
can create many sad times
from laughable things.

Searching for a dream
as a nightmare is in place
you might get confused.

Lights in the night sky
can be the stars up above
or a UFO.

The seconds tick on
as the minutes speak of time
telling of hours.

Breathing in worries
only makes your breath struggle
so breathe in a prayer.

Living for right now
does not always show the truth,
for now might be lies.

Plans for the future
need some lessons from the past
to create safeguards.

As now fades away
it may leave a few shadows
as our reminders.

You can be a rose
as you blossom what is true,
but still have some thorns.

The passing of time
leaves doorways to be opened
and some to be closed.

An island of sands
holds the sound of many waves
as the ocean’s roar.

Looking beyond now
you find many things to fear,
for you do not know,

Shattering mirrors
is assumed to give bad luck,
but there is no proof.

Acting too quickly
can unlock many doorways
filled with much regret.

Seeking only cash
to fulfill your desires
can find suicide.

As the sun rises
and the east is shining bright
the day moves along.

Shortchanged by others
can leave an angry heartbeat
where hopeful once lived.

Looking at the sun
can leave you without eyesight,
so look with much care.

A field of daisies
can poke through the grasses
creating beauty.

Our damaged roadways
can create many regrets
that are just like dust.

Becoming angry
can unleash words of regret
that you didn’t mean.

Yesterday’s flowers
might not make it into today,
due to lack of care.
