Hello my friends

So what’s up in your neck of the woods?  It’s turning quickly
to wintertime up here LOL.  Ok so it turned wintertime a long
while back there hehehehe.  Life up this ways has been sort of
boring lately.  Not much to do.  Waiting for the onslaught of
snow to become our daily picture up here LOL.  So far,  we’ve
only gotten a few brief snow showers.  When the snows do begin,
I will be out there in it hehehe doing what I like to do,  playing.
Yes I will also for sure be taking pictures hehehe.  So,  for now,
it’s on with the journal.  This past week,  Judy and I have been
playing a new farming game LOL called Country Life.  It’s sort
of cute.  Judy got me hooked on it LOL.  Like I needed another
farming game hehehehe.  Hey,  it kills time,  especially when it’s
too nasty outside to do any photography.  The games free and I
like free :).  Free’s good LOL!  Oh yea,  Judy’s place of business
at the Elm Tree diner #2 is preparing to open this week.  Gary
has not been able to begin construction of the new diner.  So the
temporary diner #2 will suffice until next year when it is built
and ready to open.   I think Judy is going to miss all the cleaning
and painting LOL.  Naw,  she has actually enjoyed being able
to come home early time to time with nothing to do.  Yet,  I’m
sure she’s ready to get back to cooking as she was hired to do.
I imagine that the first week or so of the diners opening will be
rather busy hehehe with many trying to get in for the opening
and all.  Besides that,  the diner #2 is connected to a motel that
will, I’m sure,  add much business to its daily grind.  Judy’s NOT
looking forward to that LOL!  Thanksgiving is just a week or
so away.  Have ya bought your turkey?  Hehehe Judy’s married
to hers LOL.  Hehehe really,  neither of us like turkey,  so we
will maybe have either ham or chicken :).  But,  that is not what
Thanksgiving is about.  Yet,  many forget that and stuff their
guts without knowing why they are celebrating that great day.
I know,  there are many of you that are in other countries
that do not celebrate Thanksgiving.  So bear with me hehehe.
Thanksgiving is the fourth Thursday in November in the USA
and second Monday in October in Canada.  It commemorates
a feast held in 1621 by the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag.
The Wampanoag are a member of the Algonquian people of
Rhode Island and Massachusetts who greeted the Pilgrims.
I will try to give you another reason to share.  Take this day
to be thankful for what God has given you.  You’re supposed
to be thankful always,  yet this day is to be thankful for even
more than you realize on a day to day venture.  Life is a daily
experience with good and bad entwined.  The bad makes the
good to shine brighter.  Be thankful for all that has gotten
you from there to here with all of the lessons you’ve learned.
Well,  that is about as good as an explanation I can give you
at this moment LOL.  I hope you learned something today :).
I did.  I always learn something,  because writing makes me
have to think.  There are many things that time seems to wash
from my thoughts until I begin writing.  So writing is my own
version of therapy.  I thank God for this gift He has given me
so I can share with you all of my thoughts.  I have no idea of
how I am able to compile all my thoughts into one or two days,
but that is my gift from God.  We have many blessings, but
time and troubles will sometimes make us to overlook them.
I guess I am needing to hush now and begin my little venture
back through all I’ve written to that place of recollection to
see if I can find a good word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s new poem,  so it’s away I go to that place that
I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  I believe I found a good
enough title.  Now let’s see if I can write a good enough poem
using it LOL!  Here goes nothing, hehehe, yet I hope not!!!

Shine Brighter

Jumbled confusion
from days gone awry
makes to shine brighter
the times by and by.
Lingering footsteps
from times long ago
may just shine brighter
in moments of woe.
God allows turmoil
to come time agin
to make us much stronger
and help us to win.
When you were weary
and rest came your way
you felt much better
than thens other day.
It is the minutes
of days that we’ve seen
that will shine brighter
when time’s at a lean.

Ok,  so it might of not been one of my best poems, but I bet it
made ya think LOL!  I haven’t much else to say except I wrote
some more poems and haikus.  Surprised hehehe!!!  I wrote yet
another 10 poems and 22 haiku to go along with the 4 haiku
that I wrote for my YoVille messages.  I’ve cut down a bit on the
YoVille messages hehehe being I have all of these dad gum farm
games that seem to take up a lot of time LOL.  Hey,  I’m retired
on disability,   what else is there :)????  Judy and I both enjoy all
of the games.  It sure takes the edge away from boredom hehehe.
Well,  I reckon it’s time for me to be searching for that old off
switch to cease writing,  but before I do that,  I must wish you a
most wonderful week.  Always remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Now where’s that freaking off switch this time LOL?
There you are you little bugger hehehe.  You really need more
practice at hide and seek ya know :)!  Hiding behind my soda can
will not suffice as a good location every week LOL hehehehe!!!
OK,  so see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

P.S. Hehehe I forgot.  I wrote one Thanksgiving poem and two
Christmas poems that are in the mix of poems LOL.  Hey,  I’m
old and I simply forgot :).   No matter,  they’re all there to enjoy.
Later gator 🙂 CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems
10 and 22 + 4 🙂

Footprints of Segments

Long dusty minutes
are found deep inside
where there are heartbeats
so surely alive.
Moments that gather
are minutes details
found in the stories
of deep timeless wells.
Tasted as flavors
of all that we’ve seen
are dusty minutes
of a timeless cuisine.
Lingering heartbeats
within day to day
are long and dusty,
yet dreams in a way.
Footprints of segments
are stepped to and fro
as dusty minutes
from all that we know.

Better Be Done

Have to makes sighted
what many don’t want
when many things just
troublesome taunt.
Wannas mistaken
what need to must do
when so excited
from something that’s new.
Have to makes future
when put off has won
leaving the have to,
to better be done.
is sometimes the thing
that makes tomorrow
a horrific scene.
Have to awakens
when left in the phase
what that’s been put off
for some other days.
brings oh so much pain
when they find surely
what then could attain.

Trifle of Time

Uncovered pieces
of horrific scenes
might just determine
how that you lean.
So it’s much better
to not hide at all
what that just maybe
cause you to fall.
Try and be honest
about who you are
and you’ll be better
maybe by far.
Of course there are issues
that might so to say
be so much better
just hidden away.
Things of a moments
trifle of time
might be much better
as hidden design.

Christmas in Mind

Now is beholding
the doorways to see
timelessly found
within you and me.
Christmas beginnings
as snow globes of glass
paint us the pictures
that come from the past.
Times all surrounding
scenarios found
with a little white snow
laid on the ground.
Now is a journey
that footsteps will take
as they find blessings
of Christmas awake.
Long and awaited
moments will find
seasonal settings
of Christmas in mind.

Time Off The Track

Clear and surrounding
the sight might display,
yet it might be just
a moment away.
Now may seem ready
for what that’s ahead,
yet it may be just
a moment to dread.
Clear and surrounding
might seem as so great,
yet it might be just
a wrong time and date.
Sometimes the pictures
that minutes will show
might be just moments
that are needing to grow.
Clear and surrounding
the scenes far and wide
might just be journeys
to an ongoing ride.
Now may seem dismal
and painted as black,
yet it might be just
a time off the track.

Christmastime Bless

In but a sector
of sweet seasons time
there can be happy
with a Christmas design.
All of the issues
of yesterdays stress
can become moments
of Christmastime bless.
Unsorted minutes
in a timeless routine
can become better
with a Christmastime scene.
When in fact troubles
come in to and fro
Christmastime bless can
heal every woe,
but it takes passion
and Jesus design
to heal the troubles
that times do entwine.

Keep Warmhearted

Warmhearted people
without not a clue
can become someone
that many will use.
Use a little judgment
when stepping on out
and say a prayer
for what it’s about.
There are so many
that only will take
all that you give them
and only forsake.
Here in this season
take care what you do
and don’t let anyone
come and use you,
but keep warmhearted
with Jesus in mind
as you celebrate
this wonderful time.

People We Meet

Places we gather
without yet knowing
where that it is
that daily we’re going
are but the places
in daily affairs
that many go
with out any prayers.
Places of decades
without not a trace
people will gather
to be face to face.
Places united
that many times show
are filled with  pages
of rhythm of woe.
Places we gather
should be found complete
with true compassion
for people we meet.

God’s Flowering Love

Thanksgiving turkey
that’s served with a smile
can feed so many
that time does compile.
Giving a big smile
with true love just glowing
is what Thanksgiving
is surely bestowing.
Thankful for others
that time does unfold
Thanksgiving blessings
can’t be bought or sold.
Often our loved ones
will pass on from here,
yet it’s Thanksgiving
that brings them so near.
We need remember
God’s Flowering Love,
yet it’s the turkey
that many think of.
So take the turkey
and eat till you’re full,
then let God’s blessings
to shine as a jewel.

Links To Tomorrow

Links to tomorrow
are maybe not clear
and we can’t see how
that then got to here.
Moments directions
are hidden from view
until the moments
are needed to do,
but if you’re rushing
tomorrows to see
you may just find then
some bad history.
Time is a porthole
with minutes to share,
yet it is also
sometimes not so fair.
Links to tomorrow
are maybe not found
until their minutes
have then come around.

for Nov 14,  2009

In midst of mountains
the troubles can seem greater.
View the small pebbles.

Learning never stops
and if it ever does stop
you might just be dead.

Many find wasted
what times that many offer
without a clear chance.

Essence of beauty
is the gathered up minutes
that God has given.

Hate is a problem
when there is no forgiveness.
Learn how to forgive.

A mere memory
of the Christmastime season
can paint on a smile.

Letters from loved ones
in a little paper box
can become golden.

The past is the past
and the future is to come
with lessons from past.

Watching the minutes
won’t make them come no faster.
Go on with your life.

Thanksgivings portions
that are found on the table
need a little prayer.

Moments destruction
makes the pages turn slowly
and leave but a word.

Sparkling Christmas
as some tree lights a glisten
bring joyful inside.

Hands that are slipping
will need a firm hand to hold,
so grab hold of God.

A Lifetime’s rugged
and really hard on the knees.
Careful where you fall.

Loops are signatures
of going in mere circles
and not succeeding.

Hand out a big smile
and you will get one back
that you might not see.

The language of love
is a sincere voice and heart
without deception.

Ones unfortunate
leave a trail of angels wings
awaiting to fly.

Laugh at your problems
and then get real serious
about fixing them.

Posing for turnstiles
leaves you opened for trouble.
Take care to enter.

Long times of mourning
make the healing slow to do.
Do not mourn too long.

Hard times will blossom
as lessons as our teachers
so get used to it.

Yoville Haiku

Time is the teller
of our stories remembered
as minutes array.

Plus makes the minus
when it leaves minutes gathered
as dust in the wind.

Once seeking shelter
might end you in seeking peace
from the bad shelter.

There are some people
that are watching and waiting
to see what you do.
