Obstacle Course


Hello my friends

I hope all is well in your part of the world.
We’re doing well enjoying the rain as well
as the cool temperatures.  Yeppers,  today’s
high is 49 F degrees and it’s 47 degrees now
at 8 PM.  Monday’s scheduled high is 56 F.
This is passed mid June folks.  I turned the
heat on this morning.  We’re hoping that
the price of oil goes down soon,  because
we need it to stay warm.  Oh well,  we’ll do
what we can do.  It’s supposed to be in the
70’s by the end of the week.  It’s raining
today and supposed to continue on into
the night.  There’s not much going on in
this house.  We’re just doing as always 🙂
which in your world might be considered
BORING hehehe.  Yep,  we spend a lot
of time doing our hobbies and watching
TV together.  Yes I know it’s Father’s Day,
but nothing changes for me.  Life goes on
its daily path.  Tonight we’ll watch one of
our TV programs that is our favorite and
it’s called Holey Moley.   It’s a miniature
golf that is full funny obstacles that the
contestants must complete while golfing.
So far it’s in its 4th season.  We also like
to watch Wipeout which is another type
of obstacle course game.  LOL Judy and
I wonder how many contestants end up
in the hospital after they have played 🙂
We have many different types of TV
programs that we love to watch together.
Our landlord got out with his riding
lawnmower the other day before the rain
and mowed,  so I won’t have to mow it
for a few days.  I don’t mind mowing,
but there is a limit to how much that I
am able to mow.  My old body gets tired
quickly.  No matter,  I shall continue on
until I can continue no longer.  That is
also how I deal with snow blowing or
for those that do not know what snow
blowing is,  it is clearing the driveway
blowing the snow aside.  It does tend to
wear me out pushing the snow blower,
but it can’t do it by itself LOL.  I’ve
gotta get out one day or another when
I am up to it and see about replacing
some of the underpinning to our house
that blew away in a storm last year,  but
there is no hurry in that.  I ordered me
3 new T-shirts today from Amazon.  I’ve
been needing to get some new shirts,
but this time different colors,  such as
orange,  dark green and lime green.  I
figured they’d be a gift to myself LOL.
There’s not been much going on here
at the Pearce’s Place.  Nope,  it’s quite
dead around here LOL.  Hahaha ghosts
might think we’re ghosts too,  but only
the kind that people can see without
being psychic hehehe.  🙂  no actually
we do a few things active,  such as go
to the grocery store,  shop and do our
hobbies as well as the times I mow the
yard or snow blow hehehe.  So,  Ghosts
might not think that we’re deceased 🙂
Judy and I do enjoy our time together
although there are times we do get on
each others nerves,  being we are both
retired,  but for the most part,  we do
love doing things together.  I wish our
health was better so that we could do
more things together,  but it is what it
is.  God is still looking out for Judy
and I as we travel life together.  Also
many angels and kindly spirits are still
watching over us and helping when we
are in need.  We are thankful for all
that You do for us God.  You have
never failed us.  Thank you,  we are
blessed with Your love.  AMEN….
Now, I do believe it’s time for me to
read back over all that I’ve 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 always I like to call
have found me a decent title near a
third of the way down from the start
of my rambling and now after I have
checked I see that it’s not been used
yet,  so used it shall be.  Here goes…

Obstacle Course

Life’s obstructions
come and play
as time finds
a moment’s way.
Often as holes
within our step
an obstacle course
with times inept.
Creating anger
patience loses
when we find
the shorter fuses.
Look to Heaven
and say a prayer
for a moment’s
breath of air.
God will send
a wondrous force
to help you with
an obstacle course.

Well there ya go.  I hope you liked the
poem and maybe even my rambling 🙂
Hopefully I didn’t bore you too awful
much hehehe.  No matter,  Judy is right
behind me doing her thing,  crocheting
and Rocky is asleep in his lil doggy bed
that sits between Judy and I.  I guess I
have told you all there is to tell,  other
than what I tell you every week and that
is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems and 22 more haiku
for all the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like.  Now,  I do believe that it’s  time
for me to begin my search for that silly
hardly elusive off switch,  but not before
I wish all the dads a great Father’s Day
and for everyone to have a blessed week.
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we do
too.  Okie dokie,  so now where can that
off switch be trying to hide this time???
LOL it’s just a pill bottle,  not a place to
hide.  My Potassium pill bottle isn’t the
best place to hide being it sits right in
front of me.  Take a pill and look for
a better place to hide next week LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Rocky
and spirits of Benny and Milo Pearce.

Seeking Today

Striding in the surf
with an ocean breeze
we might discover
a time so at ease.
Placed within scenes
time is romance
scented of the ocean
and song and dance.
Seconds of the day
might tick on ahead
creating reflections
inside of our head.
Memories heighten
as time moves along
becoming turnstiles
of a scenic song.
Sung as the waves
create and display
forming blessings
when seeking today.

Alone in The Sea

Time might encounter
a lonely perception
that seems all alone,
but yet it’s deception.
A sea of moments
might float our way
seeming as a turnstile
that’s Hell to pay.
Search for the times
life’s brought ashore
when alone at sea
a long time before.
See all the blessings
that came from then
and find the lessons
that then did begin.
It’s not all that bad
to be alone at times,
for it helps us to see
the awesome designs.
Look on beyond
and locate the key
as God comes along
not alone in the sea.

Stages of Blue

Throughout the ages
stages are born
becoming turnstiles
seconds transform.
An old blue photo
of timeless scenes
might live within
heart filled dreams.
Throughout seasons
windows may show
times so divine
that we wish to go.
Memories blossom
within the waves
as ones continue
to the future days.
Becoming artwork
with a seasonal hue
life is remembered
as stages of blue.

Seen up above us
are often as sights
clouds transforming
the days and nights.
Mornings may seem
as paintings of time
found in the clouds
forming in the mind.
The fingers of God
moving them around
designing the sky
often without sound.
There might even be
a crack of lightning
followed by thunder
that’s so exciting.
Yet it might only
be God decorating
the sky for a view
to shout and sing.
Find within the sky
true admirations
watching the clouds
create formations.

Living Reflections

Words of moments
memoirs of time
become that of life
living in our mind.
Reflecting beyond
what now recalls
might be magical
times standing tall.
Living as echoes
of a time long ago
reflecting as wind
that life may blow.
Becoming as faces
the places recall
time is as artwork
that stands so tall.
Painted heartbeats
of heavenly terms
blessings united
that time discerns.
Love is a moment
that never will end
scented reflections
minutes transcend.
Life is a doorway
within connections
timeless blessings
living reflections.

Brightly Shining

The sky of life
shines down true
often as glimmers
of a yellowish hue.
Brightly shining
a beacon of times
it creates shadows
wondrous designs.
Formulated scenes
as days of quests
so often blinding
for eyes to digest.
Bequeathing stars
as night enters in
the sun exposes
a time to begin.
Illuminating life
as a passing gaze
an evening comes
in wondrous ways.
Past and present
God is designing
within glimmers
brightly shining.

Summers Reveal

Days and weeks
before our eyes
become as sights
of such surprise.
Leaves of style
might portray
a magical scene
within the day.
You might even
notice a time
that seems as a
scenic rhyme.
A poetic stage
written in green
a seasonal page
of time’s cuisine.
It becomes alive
a breath of air
reflecting within
a daily prayer.
Seasons record
so many to view
within memories
of old and new.
Compiling time
within a style
that life reflects
as a little smile.
Each leaf seen
is really so real
as life evolves
summers reveal.

Cooling Memories

As summer’s heat
comes to your door
remember the times
of winters before.
Place in your mind
that cooling breeze
of a winter’s snow
on evergreen trees.
Open up your mind
and see the sight
maybe of a picture
of a winter of white.
It might not exist
in your hemisphere
this sight of time
of ones yesteryear,
but you can enjoy
the wintery scene
with a wishing well
of a living dream.
Carry it with you
in summertime heat
and let it give you
a moment’s retreat.
Seen as an island
of snow filled seas
this can be your
cooling memories.

Seconds Await

Minutes concurring
as ripples in time
might have within
a moment to find.
Just like a pond
of life’s memories
the seconds await
seasons to breathe.
So many reflections
are shadows arrays
often as a breeze
of a magical phase.
Moments uniting
to a time and date
become the essence
as seconds await.

Peaceful Surmise

Sunbeams of glory
shine very bright
as morning arises
within the daylight.
God is the painter
in wondrous detail
He creates artwork
that time sets sail.
Thriving of beauty
moments displayed
with all the colors
that God has inlaid.
Seen as an ocean
life might be found
waves of rhythms
scenic with sound.
Adorning seconds
with times surprise
minds can discover
a peaceful surmise.

The weeds in a yard
do not discern who lives there,
but who accepts them.

Some of our moments
can become as our habits
if we’re not careful.

When leaving too soon
you might find many regrets
left on the table.

Windows of today
might be filled with yesterdays
that tomorrow wants.

Within a mirror
some don’t see their reflection,
but who that they are.

Answers to questions
often come in form of time
as seconds unveil.

Patience can be bad
if waiting for illusions
that never happen.

Years might pass us by
leaving doorways and windows
chock full of regret.

Heroes of our lives
are not always obvious
for they may be small.

The paths we travel
often leave our reflections
that others may see.

Now will become then
as then becomes memories
of what we miss most.

Harnessing anger
is like becoming a cloud
awaiting a storm.

Struggles that come in life
are often the best teachers
that we remember.

Life’s varieties
give many choices to make
that may not be good.

Through an open door
may walk chances and problems
so guard what enters.

Many hands of  time
have the blisters that they earned
and others have none.

Traveling mindsets
create many ways to think
that might just confuse.

Many things in life
might seem as mere illusions,
but be really real.

Waves of an ocean
create songs within a breeze
that can give us peace.

Limits on choices
can form a tunnel effect,
so look more widely.

Many things in life
can ricochet back on us,
so take care your aim.

Daffodils of life
might display only beauty,
but be only weeds.
