Around The Corner


Hello my friends

So, what’s up doc hehehe? Nothing’s much changed
around these woods. We’re still here with our regular
every day programming hehehe. Each day seems to
be the same to me, except of course for the snow that
has finally melted away. The grass has begun to turn
green. The trees are slowly but surely coming to life.
Of course the only thing different with the evergreens
is they don’t have snow hanging in all their branches.
Yeppers, for the first time since we moved up here
we were able to see a snowless Easter hehehehehehe.
There were still a few patches of snow where the sun
didn’t shine, but for the most part it was all gone from
everywhere else that we could see. Springtime has
made it finally. I took a few pictures outside our front
door a few minutes ago and I will use them for today’s
stationary. Of course those of you receiving this via
plane Jane/text style unfortunately will not see it hehe
unless I upload it to my Facebook and you in fact have
Facebook and me as a friend on it LOL. None the
less, if you are so curious that you would like to see
the pictures anyways, then let me know and I’ll send
ya a few. I only took 10 pictures but deleted 2 of em
because they were askew a tad hehe. I can hear our
neighbors kid riding his little 4 wheeler. up and down
the road. Brings back memories of me back when I
was a kid with my mini bike. I ran the wheels off
that thing LOL. I was talking to my mom yesterday
about our ages. I told her, I don’t feel like a senior
citizen for some reason other than of course my aches
and pains. I tend to view things from a much younger
viewpoint. I’m a kid at heart. Just wish my body was
in better shape so I could do some things that I enjoy
such as hiking. I used to love heading out through
the woods to explore. Now I’m limited to the distance
I can explore hehehe. Can’t get far from a restroom,
plus my old legs and feet don’t hold out as long as
they used to. Yet I’m grateful for what I am able to
do. I have yet to of made another conga drum video,
but am planning on giving it shot today. My mother
reminded me of my dads problem with pinched nerves.
He had the very same problem with the same arm
and hand. The nerve in my neck is pinched and it
makes my hand go numb then it begins to hurt and
travel all up and down my arm throbbing. I had
thought the problem had begun in my hand, but was
wrong. Just reverse hehe. Oh well, I will attempt
to stow the pain long enough to do me a four or five
minute video. If ya see tears in my eyes hehehehehe
ya will know it’s hurting. Anyways, I’ll post the
video when I get it done and sized down for upload
up to my UTube channel. Today’s supposed to be
a high of 61F degrees. Right now it’s 55F degrees.
There’s a flood advisory for northeastern parts of
Aroostook County in Northern Maine, but we are
on high ground. Ye old snow melted making a lot
of water to have no place to go. I guess you’ve heard
of all the tornadoes that hit down south huh. Judy
and I watched on TV as they showed the destruction.
My heart and prayers goes out to all those affected.
That’s why it’s always best to be ready to go home
to Heaven. Always try to have your affairs in order
and your relationship with God intact. We never
know when that final day will come. It could be
right around the corner and look as though we have
a long way to go. Only God knows when the end
shall come. Hehehe I wrote another poem that in
a way may seem as an AA poem LOL, but it’s all
about life. Anyways, God has control and we need
to keep that in mind as we do what we do. He does
ever so often allow us to do what we will for its
the lessons that transpire. We may view a moment
of devastation as very sad, but God sees new angels
born. It’s not the end, but the beginning. We’re
here to live on this planet for just a brief. There
are lost souls left walking the Earth for God only
knows the reasons. None the less, Don’t let your
viewpoints cloud your judgment. Let God guide
you through life. Of course there will be ups and
downs. That’s life! That’s lessons! OK, so I guess
it’s time for me to take my little venture back on
through all that I’ve written here to see if I can
find a good word or phrase that might work well
for the title for today’s brand new poem. And so
I am off to that place of my recollection that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I found a
good title. Now let’s see if I can pull a rabbit out
of the hat hehehe or write a good poem using it.
Here goes one or the other LOL or both….

Around The Corner

Face to face
a mind might see
place to place
in history.
Yet the scenes
from when and where
around the corner
might end there.
Often judgment
isn’t seen
when we’re stuck then
in between.
Life of phases
surely found
around the corner
might astound.
Let not pages
turns and twists
lead you to
an angered fist.
Around the corner
you might find
God is waiting
with your Time.

Ok so there ya go hehe. Gidder done 🙂 I hope that
made a little sense to ya. My hand is acting up right
now so bear with me. I guess I need to be finding an
ending to all my rambling hehehe so I reckon I need
to be searching for that off switch, but not before I
tell ya what I tell ya every week and that is, I wrote
some more poems and haiku. Yeppers, I wrote 10
more poems and 22 more haiku. Nopers, I didn’t
write any Christmas poems this time either, but rest
assured I will hehehe. I simply love Christmas. We
have our year round Christmas tree still lit up and
standing in the living room LOL. It’s one of those
pre decorated fiber optic trees hehe. Judy saw that
I spent a lot of time going to look at the tree to find
some peace time to time, so she bought me this one
as a Christmas gift to keep up all year round. Love
that gal. Well I guess I need to be saying farewell
before I begin searching for that off switch, So have
a wonderful God filled week and always remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now to find that
off switch. Hehehe found it hunkered down out
in the front yard searching for snow. Ain’t none
dude hehehe. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehe 🙂

I Will Not

Today for a moment
I will not worry
about all the things
that timelessly scurry.
I will not venture
with my despair.
Just for today
I’ll kneel down in prayer.
Today is just a time
that can be found
seeking passed trouble
onto higher ground.
I will not let ones
to tear me apart
with all their anger
from ending to start.
Today for a minute
I will withstand
all of the snapping
of life’s rubber bands
and in the moments
passed thereunto
I will not let ones
mess with my view.

Scenes discarded
day by day
often are our
own display.
Sometimes moments
found in time
are our pages
days design.
Visions seen
as dialect
could be our own
Many people
here and there
may see us as
not so fair.
We may look as
though we’re mean
in their retrospect

Still Waters

Many rivers
lead to lakes
without any
life mistakes.
Many rivers
running free
also head on
out to sea.
Yet some rivers
only find
they’re still waters
peace of mind.
Ending as a
peaceful stream
without ripples
ever seen.
In still waters
ones might view
signs of times
in a sea of blue.
As reflections
of the day
the still waters
melt away.
Timeless minutes
can be found
when still waters
come around.

Visual Sounds

Things we see
from place to place
might just be
a moments grace.
Visual sounds
reflected views
might just be
some hidden news.
Deep within
a visual round
there might be
a hidden sound.
As a moments
visual scene
sounds might be found
in between.
In the lightning
of a storm,
thunder comes
to then conform.
Visual sounds
across the sky
make the views
of storms reply.

With our blessings
timeless seen
we may not know
what they mean.
You may see some
just insane
as a blessing
without gain.
Often longing
makes us view
many blessings
not so true.
Sometimes wanting
longing styles
just removes
our daily smiles.
Make your longing
that of God
what that’s good
without applaud.
Let your ego
rest today.
Make your longing
God’s Own Way.

It Takes Two Hearts

Combined together
two shall find
maybe a little
heartfelt mind,
but some people
that we view
should not be
combined into.
It takes two hearts
made as one
to make blessings
then begun.
Two found fighting
day and night
cannot find
a peaceful sight.
It takes two hearts
bound together
to make true love
last forever.

Rhythms Of Life

Rhythms beating
heard and found
might be heartbeats
sight and sound.
Some are as
the rhythms of life
found as the echoes
of husband and wife.
Some symphonies
are found unclear
as all the rhythms
we see and hear.
The rhythms of life
might be seen
as a wanted
wishful dream.
Some so lucky
though will find
rhythms beating
mind to mind
and in those moments
of rhythms of life
there can be found
the ending of strife.

Wind in Bamboo

I hear wind chimes
sweetly singing
as they’re in
the wind just ringing.
Sticks of bamboo
connected with twine
sing me a song
of a wonderful time.
I hear the chimes
in my memories
singing the songs
there in the trees.
Hung on a branch
in our backyard
the wind in bamboo
then clangs so hard.
I hear the pitches
now so true
found in the time
of wind and bamboo.

Quiet Beauty

Sounds of silence
that we see
can be as our
quiet beauty.
Scenes so silent
in our view
might be found
as good and true.
In quiet beauty
there might grow
signs of times
filled with woe.
Sometimes beauty
isn’t good,
for it’s just
Let the silence
become clear
with quiet beauty
so sincere.
Let not beauty
be as found
without vision
only sound.

Almost Daybreak

I watched the night
transpose its view
into something
so brand new.
I saw the sights
of night at end
almost daybreak
to append.
I watched closely
as time went
while night flew
so Heaven sent.
I watched the stars
as night went on
while almost daybreak
sought to dawn.
I saw the twinkling
stars in flight
while then daybreak
ended night.

for Apr 30, 2011

Some might see blessings,
but others see only bad
as they are blinded.

In a moments rush
you might miss all the good times
as they pass you by.

Springtime is displayed
as shadows of memories
as flowers blossom.

Thinking a good thought
does not mean that you are smart.
Sometimes just lucky.

Standing in the rain
will sometimes enlighten you,
but you may get wet.

Time might unleash storms
that you may not understand.
Sometime’s that is best.

Thunderstorms display
when clouds unite together
and become as one.

Wintertime is gone
leaving only shadows found
as patches of snow.

In a mere meadow
could be a heartbeat of time
hidden in a dream.

Painted are echoes
across the great dispersion
of lifetime of scenes.

With kindred spirits
comes many different views
that need to unite.

Life might seem gruesome,
but it could be just your sight
that sees it that way.

Temporal moments
connect together in time
through humanity.

Lessons have value
sometimes found as our hard knocks
we wished to avoid.

Slumbering silence
might be awakened by sounds
of a crashing car.

Searching for newness
could leave you wishing for old
to come back again.

Daybreaks encounter
brings hope for a better day,
but it needs our help.

Guarantees aren’t good
if they’re done with emptiness
without any proof.

The lines on a face
mark the minutes of a life
with smiles and frowns.

While looking upwards
you might get pooped in the face
by a passing bird.

Bringing yesterday
to today and tomorrow
needs done with lessons.

Seeing someone talk
does not mean you are to hear.
Give some privacy.
