Being Alive


Hello my friends

How are you doing today? I hope God has blessed you
in some way. Judy finally got her unemployment started.
They sent her 5 weeks of back pay FINALLY. Judy went
to look at her bank account on the internet hoping that
it would be there and began clapping like a kid hehehehe.
I looked back and saw her grinning ear to ear. She said,
“it’s there”. Needless to say the tension around here has
also eased up thank God :). Ok so on with the journal.
This passed week has not been much on the excitement
status LOL. We went shopping a day or so before she
got her unemployment and I spent a whole of 26 dollars
on necessities and if ya know anything about prices, you
also know that 26 dollar nowadays don’t buy much LOL.
I took pictures there and back as always. Yesterday we
took a ride up to the Crows Nest in Presque Isle Maine
and had dinner to celebrate a much needed change in
our finances. Yes, I took pictures there and back also
hehehe as always. I wanted to have a few pictures to
put in my stationary and also for memories. I will once
in a while revisit our old pictures taken here and there
when I’m feeling sad. It’s a good pick me up. It shows
me the joy we’ve seen throughout time. We’ve had rain
off and on every week since it freaking stopped snowing
back in April LOL. It rained a little yesterday. It’s not
raining today. It’s supposed to be sunny with a high of
79F degrees. Right now it’s 72F at 12:00 noon. Not
too bad. There’s a nice breeze blowing in the windows
and the sun is shining bright. Hehehe I guess I should
take a picture of it, because it will be gone tomorrow
as the rains begin again hehehe. I think we live in the
freaking rainforest minus the forest of course hehehe.
There go the Harley bunch riding down the road as
they do most every day. Don’t know where they live,
but must be close LOL. OK so onwards to another
topic. Judy and I played our hidden object game till
midnight last night. My eye was beginning to twitch
and hurt so we had to quit and head to bed. When ya
have only one good eye, it puts a lot of strain on it
and limits my time of doing anything requiring sight.
Oh well, life goes on. Onto another topic. The heat
waves across the US are still doing their damage.
Fortunately they aren’t reaching us up here in the
Northeastern part of the US (MAINE). I feel sorry
for all of you having to deal with the triple digits and
thereabouts. I wish we could send you some of our
weather. Have faith, it will change. We might be
praying for some of your temperatures come winter.
That’s the draw back to living up here hehehehehe.
I can hear our neighbors kids playing across the
way :). That’s a great sound to hear. The sound of
laughter and giggles brings the day alive. Yeppers
that’s something to be thankful for. We all tend
to overlook the blessings that are maybe there, but
hidden in our anger. Don’t let anger of a moment
prevent you from seeing the blessings all thereabout.
See the joy in being alive even if you are with much
pain. Often we will forget that there are many that
do not have arms and legs and many that have never
walked or seen the colors in a day. Be thankful
that you have. Or if you have no sight now, find
the joy in another’s view of it and paint a picture
in your mind. Let God’s blessings envelop you in
every minute of time. Now I believe it’s time for me
to begin my little venture back through all that I’ve
written here to see if I can find me a good word or
phrase that will work well for the title for today’s
brand new poem. So it’s off I go to that place of
my recollection that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I believe I may have stumbled upon a
good poem. Now let’s see if I can put some good
words together to form a decent poem using it.
Here goes nothing…..Hehehehe!

Being Alive

A time or place
in history
gave a sight
for you to see.
A scenic view
of there and then
can become
remembered when.
Being alive
can be described
as a moments
bumpy ride.
Yet the ride
of thereunto
can become
a wondrous view.
If remembered
in detail
sights and sounds
can be so well.
All those times
of there and then
can be strength
to help begin.
Use the tools
of being alive
to help you daily
to survive.
Find the joy
through history
to enhance
the things you see.

I hope that made a little sense to ya hehehehe. I never
know if it made sense to anybody other than me unless
they tell me LOL. Oh well, la-di-da hehehehehehehehe.
Well, there go the Harley bunch back the other way :).
Can hear those motorcycles a mile away as they get
closer and pass us by. Yep, it’s Sunday and life is still
shouting “here I am”. Anyways, I guess I need to begin
telling you what I tell you every freaking week and that
is, I wrote some more poems hehehe. Yeppers 10 more
poems with one of them a Christmassy/wintery style and
yes of course I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku
lovers across the globe. I hope you enjoy a few of them.
Now I guess it’s time for me to begin my search for that
old off switch so I can wake Judy and fix her and I some
breakfast, but not before I wish you a most wonderful
God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now to find that off switch. Found it sitting in
the window wondering what that big orange thing is up
in the sky :). Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe ­čÖé

Thinking Eyes

A daily journal
with some pages
shows the times
of many stages.
Words recorded
in a rhyme
might display
a different time.
Daily moments
found as words
might become
a flock of birds.
Flying freely
in the skies
of the minutes
thinking eyes.
A daily journal
that is seen
might be found
as just a dream.

Be Prepared

Signs of times
are coming fast
that one day
will end at last.
The stage is set
from now and then
with what all
that will begin.
We know not
what times ahead
will become
our river bed.
Only God
knows of the day
signs of times
will then display.
So today’s
tomorrows found
might be when
it comes around.
Be prepared
for then and there
finding peace
within a prayer.
Let God’s love
envelop you
showing what
that’s really true.

Another Story

The summers rains
are falling fast
now today
as scenes are found.
The Northern scenes
of summers view
now is rain
upon the ground.
Timeless portholes
come in sync
with the way
of pitter patter.
Northern raindrops
fall in place
as the climbing
of a ladder.
Climbing higher
with each step
unto summers
ending true.
The summers rains
will end one day
leaving colors
in my view.
Fall will display
certain sights
as the timeframes
move along.
Then old winter
will be found
as fall colors
then are gone.
Winters minutes
then of white
will be found
most every day.
Snow white moments
will be seen
as some snowmen
then display.
Spring will follow
with its sights
of the flowers
in its glory.
Then the passage
then and there
will begin
another story.

Don’t Let Then

A point in time
of minutes passed
leaves a sign
of shadows cast.
Many segues
of our lives
leave a portion
that survives.
So be careful
what you do,
for it could surely
follow you.
A point in time
that’s reminisced
might become
a minute missed.
Don’t let then
to bring you down.
Let today
be goodness found.

Little Flowers

Little flowers
on the ground
make their colors
all around.
Here and there
and all about
little flowers
seem to shout,
“look at me
I’m here for you,
take a picture
of my view”.
Little flowers
soon will be
just a bit
of history,
but again
they will be found
as some beauty
to astound.

Look To See

A day of smiles
brings better health
to a time
that seemed insane.
Some good recalled
from faraway
might just be
a minutes gain.
A mere moments
happy view
might become
a better sight
if you let the
happy view
live and breathe
when filled with fright.
Don’t let timeframes
take control
of your heartbeats
daily rhythm.
Look to see
your blessings found
and what all
that God has given.

In This Dream

In a dream
I saw a place
with white snow
upon my face.
In this dream
I felt alive
as the minutes
did survive.
I saw Santa
and his elves
with some toys
upon the shelves.
I saw Rudolph
with his nose
shining brightly
where he goes.
This great dream
was found with flavor
filled with blessings
then to savor.
In this dream
I found the joy
when I was
a little boy.
I saw me then
not so old
seeing presents
as pure gold.
I recall
the gifts I got
were not much,
but loved alot.
Christmas brought
to me a smile
in this dream
of distant mile.
I’ve awakened
now today
and I see
the same display.
Not the price,
but thought indeed
is the thing
we really need.

Great Beginnings

I feel the breeze
now blowing in
here as morning
does begin.
Morning smiles
as it displays
now and then
of will and ways.
Look and see
the flowers bloom
as the breezes
then attune.
Feel the mornings
flavors found
here and there
and all around.
Let the morning
bring to you
great beginnings
in your view.

Remember True

the days of old
can somehow
make them unfold.
Simple thoughts
of minutes time
can induce
a little rhyme.
is not that bad,
just don’t cry
for what you had.
Often minutes
might not seem
as if they’re gray.
Remember true
the lessons found
from the old
that came around.

for July 30, 2011

Raindrops falling
brings joy to many flowers
that wait for a drink.

Summers secession
brings fall with many colors
before wintertime.

A shadow will move
as you yourself make action
so know you are seen.

Dream of a heartbeat
and you will hear that heartbeat,
yet still in a dream.

Time is a builder
with minutes to enlighten
as mistakes are made.

A journey forward
makes distance dissipate
but it’s remembered.

Fuel for a blessing
comes from loving God above
and His Only Son.

Minutes into time
give way for many lessons
learned from our mistakes.

Pricing a heartbeat
makes it less than it can be
for it is priceless.

Looking to the sky
see the pictures in the clouds
as they float on by.

A wanted moment
can destroy today’s chances
if it’s not needed.

Words in a story
make the reader see pictures
of what’s to be seen.

Jumbled emotions
often make our choices bad.
Try to unravel.

When skies are cloudy
look for the silver linings
and see the beauty.

Happiness is found
in a moments acceptance
of what you can’t change.

Hearing some thunder
does not mean there will be rain.
Sometimes it’s just noise.

Clearing up a path
might need a little patience
for all the road blocks.

The sun is shining
no matter if it’s not seen
as also is God.

Troubles will blossom,
but goodness will transpire
if it is allowed.

Sometimes a page turned
needs a little more reading.
Don’t turn too quickly.

When now seems troubled
have faith that it will work out
with some help from God.

Sometimes an echo
is that of a failing time
that needs to subside.
