To Be Devoid


Hello my friends

Yeppers, it be Sunday again and I be rambling again 🙂
So how’ve ya been? I hope you’ve gotten to see some of
the fall colors before they faded from sight. Wintertime
is knocking loudly on our door hehehe. It looks like we
might get some snow soon, but then the weather forecast
changes quickly, hehehe so who’s to say! Not much has
gone on up here at the Pearce’s household. Nope, we’re
still doing our every day stuff LOL. I’m getting ready for
Christmas. Got me a brand-new Santa suit HoHoHo hehe.
The weather each day is getting more wintery, but it’s not
too cold as of yet. Actually it’s been rather mild so far 🙂
Snow is predicted for Thursday night and Friday, but as
I said, that can all change. Earlier or later hehehe. Only
God truly knows. Today’s high is supposed to be about
52F degrees and right now that’s what it is, so it might
get a little warmer today, but not much if at all. Judy is
still asleep, being she didn’t go to sleep till around 3 AM.
We’ve gotten in the habit of watching Friends and the
That’s 70’s Show hehehe. Yeppers we’re still playing all
of our games together. Ok, now our neighbor is riding
her riding lawn mower around giving her child a ride,
not to mention she keeps driving close by our window
and the fact that it’s Sunday morning. Thank God she
finally turned the confounded thing off. LOL there ain’t
no grass to mow. What there is, will soon be dead and
gone till next spring. OK, back to my rambling hehehe.
Where was I??? Never mind LOL! Today looks like
it will be pretty with a few clouds in sky. There isn’t
much to report from up here. My sister in law Barb
is doing OK. She’s still holding strong with all of the
cancer treatments. The chemotherapy is getting her
down a bit though with the loss of her hair. Please
continue to keep her in your prayers. Love ya Barb.
Well as I said, not much has changed in the Pearce’s
household. God is still looking out for Judy and I as
we face each day together. Oh yea, Judy was turned
down for SSD, so she hired an attorney. Too bad
it couldn’t of worked out like mine did, but then, I
would be happy to be devoid of some of my health
issues LOL. I was accepted immediately without any
fuss. Oh well, she’ll get it. The attorney won’t get
paid unless Judy gets paid. Keep us in your prayers
anyways. Can always use prayers. Ok so I guess it’s
time for me to head back through 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 place of my recollection
that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I
may have stumbled upon a good title just a little ways
back. Now let’s see what I can do with it hehehehe.
Here goes!!!

To Be Devoid

Things might seem
to overcome
timeless views
from anyone.
To be devoid
of things we feel
we might lose
a days appeal.
Sometimes views
of here and there
lead us on
so unaware.
To be devoid
of prayer and more
we could find
a troubled door,
leading to
some ventures seen
seeded from
a liars dream.
So don’t let
your senses lie
about what all
that’s truly why.

So, did that make any sense to ya, at all hehehe? Ok, so
it might not have. Oh well 🙂 Life goes on. My dad always
said I had a weird way of seeing things that actually made
sense LOL. He called me a thinker. There’s not many of
my friends that actually knew me beyond the wall I had up.
I put on a face that hid the deep thoughts that were always
alive in me. They only came out in my poetry which I might
add hehehe not but a few knew I even wrote until my senior
year in high school LOL. My college professor thought I
was very unique in my ability to write so instantaneously.
She called it automatic writing. Anyways, I hope you got
something from all of my rambling. I guess it’s time for
me to be telling you what I tell you every week and that
is, I wrote some more poems and haiku. Actually I wrote
them all early this morning hehehe. As I mentioned before
in one of my other articles, I have to wait for Judy to go
to bed so I can write, being I like to watch TV and play
games with her :). So I wrote 10 poems with one of them
a Christmas poem. Also I wrote 22 more haiku for all
of my haiku lovers out there. I hope some of my poems
and or haiku find a way into your heart. Now I believe
it’s about time for me to be searching for that old off
switch, but not before I wish you all a most wonderful
God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now to find that freaking off switch so I can
rest my eye. It be getting a bit tired from lack of sleep.
Found that off switch this time hiding under my Port
Aransas TX hat in wishful thinking world hehehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. Don’t judge the poems too harshly hehehehehehe.
I’m having to edit them all by myself, being Judy’s asleep.

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

Such As Minutes

Echoes of some
shadow play
are the words
from day to day.
Written in the
days of time
as a little
moments rhyme.
Days are counted
as a phase
listing all the
wondrous ways.
Such as minutes
found till noon
sounding off
a chirping tune.
Birds will repeat
echoes heard
as a shadows
minutes word.
Speaking softly
tones we hear
that remind of
Such as minutes
are the scenes
found as many
wanted dreams.

Keeping Santa

Wild and wooly
I remember
times I’ve found
in each December.
My beard growing
gray and long
seeming like a
Christmas song.
Tunes we sing
of Christmas snow
and the sign of
Many children
dream of sights
such as Santa
in the nights.
Wild and wooly
with red clothes
children dream
he comes and goes.
Santa Claus
of times prediction
then to them
gives no restriction.
He brings toys
and needed smiles
as he travels
many miles.
My own feelings
are well said
as I don
my suit of red.
I wish smiles
for everyone
while reminding
of God’s Son.
Keeping Santa
to remind me
of the gifts
that are so free.
Given through
the blessings of
God and Heaven
and His Love.
Through the times of
Christmas morn
that have shared
our Savior Born.

Dreamers Peace

Mindless banter
comes in frame
with some tired
with no refrain,
Sleepy minutes
bring to mind
mindless value
out of time.
Often sleepless
will concur
with what all
that seconds stir.
Find some moments
to find rest
so the times
don’t end mind less.
Let your pillow
find a place
with the imprint
of your face.
Mindless banter
then will cease
with the sight
of dreamers breeze.

The Harmony

Pages turned
of many days
might seem as
a moments maze.
The harmony
of pages torn
brings to life
a time that’s born.
Making corners
left and right
brings to view
another sight.
The harmony
that we attain
might be seen
a bit insane,
but the stages
that we see
might be pages

Release of Time

Beyond this moment
lies a place
that has choices
for your face.
Beyond this minute
there is peace
with the need
of times release.
Beyond this moment
is a time
needing fragrance
of design.
Beyond this minute
there is care
found as peaceful
throughout prayer.
Release of time
beyond this stage
brings to life
a better age.
Beyond this moment
is a chance
to be stronger
with your stance.

How Distant

All the seasons
seem to be
signs of times
from history.
Oh how distant
are the views
as they shadow
daily news.
Seasons changing
day and night
while describing
every sight.
Oh how distant
they become
as they beat
their daily drum.
Times are painted
as some frames
that are shadows
filled with names.
Yes how distant
some may seem,
but they fill a
moments dream.

Autumn Leaves

Now’s a flavor
lost in time
tasted as a
single sign.
Autumn leaves
have gone away
leaving signs
of winters day.
Now my eyes find
here and there
autumn leaves
a little bare.
Flavors strewn
so gracefully
as the winds blow
tree to tree.
Autumn leaves
upon the ground
are the flavors
I have found.

Comfort Zone

Our somewhat gaze
from here to there
might just be
a know not where.
A comfort zone
inside our mind
built on moments
minutes time.
Sometimes comfort
is not found,
yet it’s seen as
to astound.
Our comfort zone
of which we make
might just be
a mere mistake.
Found through wannas
empty bliss,
our own comfort
we might miss.

Highland Styles

Songs are playing
hills so high
highland styles
of where and why.
Written verses
in a gaze
highland styles
are many days.
Songs of blessings
highs and lows
found as just some
mere echoes.
Styles of heartbeats
beating true
come to life
within the view.
Seen as such
with many smiles
mountains show some
highland styles.
Written as some
scenic ways
found within
a moments gaze.

Shimmering Horizons

Seen so shimmering
as the beginning
of all the thoughts
found in the ending.
Shimmering horizons
fade out from view
as they enlighten
something brand new.
Nightfall brings shadows
seen in the dark
as the horizon
times do embark.
Shimmering glimmering
horizons found
leads to equations
that do astound.
Linking some portholes
together with peace
giving the chances
for things to cease.
Shimmering horizons
given from God
we should each daily
give an applaud.

for Oct 23, 2011

Today might be found
as just a mere reminder
of your yesterdays.

Lies bring you more lies
as shadows of much torment.
The truth is better.

Letters of flowers
are written as the stages
that seasons display.

Having a minute
needs lesser seconds wasted.
A minute will pass.

Gazing at today
you might miss the best picture
if not seen clearly.

Scenery changes
as seeds of time are planted
giving some new views.

Every moment
brings another chance for hope
through Jesus and prayer.

Seek not all answers,
for some will come when needed
or just fade away.

Hesitant feelings
could become your own downfall,
yet don’t be stupid.

Hands held together
make a chain of humanity.
Be true to Jesus.

Long winded people
could leave you in confusion
as you fall asleep.

Thoughts of yesterday
find their ways into today
through our memories.

Beyond a moment
lies a fragment of pure hope
needing nurturing.

Heat of a moment
can conjure up some actions
that need not be done.

A gateway through time
stands with glimmers that we see
that we need to choose.

Sometimes an answer
ends in questions to be asked
about the answers.

Hearing a breeze blow
and feeling it just as well
gives it an essence.

Fraudulent people
leave shadows of their beings
in all that they do.

A second will pass
as minutes quickly gather,
so don’t waste God’s time.

Lessons from today
could be seen as yesterdays
that we did not learn.

Anger management
needs installments of Jesus
to give you true peace.

Today is hopeful
with chances to enlighten
how that you view it.
