Spokes Of Turmoil


Hello my friends

How have ya been Has your weekend been a peaceful one?
It’s been sort of chaos around here due to my darned internet
connection LOL. The beginning of last week I started having
problems not being able to get to my website. I pulled up every
other website, but not mine LOL. Last night I had a thought.
Hmm, our router has been blinking quite a bit here lately and
rebooting it didn’t stop it. So I disconnected our router from
the modem and plugged the modem directly into my PC and
VOILA I can pull up my website and even get email from it :).
So I went to WalMart a little bit ago and bought us a brand
new router. It works :). I just couldn’t figure out why it was
letting me get to every other website, but not mine hehehe.
It might have been damaged in a thunderstorm power outage.
Who Knows! In any case I’m back in business. Now to send
my other PC to Texas to have them do some repairs that I’m
unable to do, reasons being, my eyesight has diminished
making it hard to do small things and the fact that I cannot
find many of the drivers that I need. So Texas bound it will
be :). Now onto another topic! The weather has been quite
nice lately. It’s 56 F degrees right now at 3:30 PM. I took
a few fall pictures Thursday when I was bringing our car home
from Houlton after the tailpipe was repaired. I got quite a
few good pictures and on the way home from WalMart today
I managed to take a few more pictures. I figured I needed
to act fast, because rain is on the way which might knock
most of the leaves off of the trees :). Judy and I are doing
well. The boys are as rambunctious as ever LOL. It seems
they have both taken up the duty of guard dog hehehehehe.
Our neighbors kids came over yesterday evening to borrow
some sugar and Benny and Milo began barking and growling
as if they were gonna tear em up LOL. Of course we knew
they were just making noise :). The boys have met Benny
and know he’s nice :). It’s just that they feel responsible
for protecting us from danger for some reason hehehehe.
Benny has always been playful, but now even Milo loves
to play. They both love me to wrestle with them in the
floor or for that matter anywhere LOL. Milo jumps up
just like a little pup, he gets so excited :). Benny is still
a pup in many ways being he’s only 2 years old, but Milo
is 9 years old. It seems he’s found the pup inside of him.
They love each other dearly and are very rarely apart for
long. If you start petting or playing with one, you can bet
that the other will be rooting in to be petted and played
with as well hehehe. There’s not much changed here at
the Pearce’s Place other than what I’ve already told ya.
We still do Farm Town on Facebook, just maybe not
as much as we have in the past. We’re always finding
new TV programs to watch to replace the ones that have
had their season finale. Life is good! We are both sat
waiting for the seasons changes. Soon winter will be
here with the first snowflakes to float from the sky 🙂
I myself always love to see the first snow, but yet after
about 3 or 4 months it does get old LOL. God has most
surely blessed us and our home. We might have a few
pitfalls in life, but there is much joy to be found if we
will just take the time to find it. There are a lot of times
that I myself get caught up in the spokes of turmoil, but
God sends angels to pull me from them. You can also
find joy if you look beyond the turmoil. Sometimes it
just takes a few steps back away from the moment to
see the blessings. Let God help you to find the peace
that exist awaiting for you to let a moment go. Letting
go of a portion of time that you have no control over
can help you to breathe more calmly. Now I believe
it’s time for me to be taking my little journey back
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. So, it’s away I go
to that place of my recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I might of found
a good title, but gotta check to see if have or haven’t
used it already 🙂 Nope, ain’t used it, so here ya go.

Spokes Of Turmoil

Our wheels are in motion
as timeframes move on
sometimes while leaving our
happiness gone.
Then in those moments
we need to find ways
through all the turmoil
to see better days.
Our spokes of turmoil
might tangle and weave
finding us staring at
things that deceive.
Let your wheels roll on
with Lord God Divine
then spokes of turmoil
won’t be a land mine.
Our wheels are in motion
from morning to night
even if we sit there
just seeking sight.
The wheels turning quickly
are ours on the road
leading many places
of turmoil’s abode.
Let the wheels turning
to not slip in oil
found as so many
spokes of turmoil.
Find your wheels turning
within God’s Own light
and through the turmoil
you’ll be alright.

So there ya go! I hope you weren’t bored to death by all of
my rambling LOL. Did the poem make any sense to you ?
I hope so! Both of the boys are lying in their doggy beds in
floor right beside me and Judy. Ok so they both got up so
to follow Judy into the bedroom. She’s gonna take a little
nap. It seems she has acquired my sinus problems hehehe.
I didn’t think they were contagious LOL. Anyways, she is
tired of sneezing and blowing her nose. I know exactly how
she feels! I sneeze like a rapid fire machine gun hehehehe.
When I get started I have heck trying to stop 🙂 So that’s
about all from us here in New Limerick ME. I guess I need
to be telling you what I tell you every week and that is, I
wrote some more poems and haiku. Yep, 10 more poems
plus 1 that I wrote earlier in the week which brings the
total to 11 with 3 of the poems being Christmassy. Also I
once again wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. I hope you find a few of either or both that bring
a smile or a lesson to learn. Now it’s almost time for me
to be searching for the confounded off switch, but not
before I wish you a most wonderful God filled week with
blessings. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now to find that silly off switch. Aha, I see ya you little
varmint LOL. I’ve told ya tons of times, don’t try to hide
behind my Benadryl bottle. I do tend to pick it up to get
a pill out from time to time for my allergies ya know :).
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz a chew zzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

The Days Will Pass

Beyond each season
there’s reflections
found within the
days connections.
The days will pass
and leave their stage
set up for the
next turned page.
Scenes will blossom
as they grow
as the days pass
to and fro.
With each turnstile
time portrays
we’ll see what
each day displays.
Timeless formats
shadows cast
will be as
the days will pass.

The Changes Of Times

When moments arrive
with many designs
we sometimes see
the changes of times.
Scenes we’ve remembered
as oceans and seas
the changes of times
are just memories.
Found sometimes gleaming
as moments move on
the changes of times
aren’t what we have known.
Often our footsteps
we carry in stride
are filled with changes
that we have denied.
So many moments
with each days designs
display enhancements
the changes of times.

When Daylight Comes

As many seconds
tick by oh so fast
time becomes as our
future from past.
When daylight arrives
and nighttime is gone
there are the flavors
displayed as new dawn.
Then many seconds
might gather their speed
when daylight comes
to give what we need.
Chances for new days
with each rising sun
are as a chess game
sometimes one on one.
When daylight comes
it gives you a chance
to thank God for seasons
that moments enhance.

Flavors Of Snow

As wintertime comes
it displays a scene
flavors of snow over
grasses once green.
With every snowflake
that falls to the ground
I am stood watching
in such an astound.
Glimmers of Christmas
find ways which to show
displayed as beauty of
flavors of snow.
Christmastimes stages
are set and displayed
by all the snowflakes
so heavenly laid.
Then as the season
brings Christmas in sight
flavors of snow then
glitter at night.
With all the colorful
lights thereunto
lit up so wondrously
for us to view.
The flavors of snow
are scented with dream
as that of Christmastime
found all agleam.

There And Beyond

Fractions are counted
as there and beyond
within the ripples
that are found in a pond.
Then there are journeys
to here unto there
found as the gateways
that seem not so fair.
Leading from then days
of there and beyond
it sometimes seems as
the good times are gone.
Yet if seen clearly
the moments we see
can become greater
than our history.
So don’t let sadness
to live on and on.
Look for the good times
right there and beyond.

Winter’s Promenade

Snowflakes arrival
is found in the sky
falling down briskly
and seeming to fly.
Pictures are painted
as winter’s retreat
with all the glimmers
of snow oh sweet.
Christmas then beacons
as seasons aglow
in winter’s promenade
found in the snow.
Many will search for
a snowball to make
or a large snowman
to stand in the wake.
As all the snowflakes
are falling so free
winter’s promenade
is Christmas to see.

Now And Tomorrow

Links to our footsteps
footprints will show
in all the places
that we daily go.
Now and tomorrow
are often not clear
for we can only
see what that is here.
Yet even now times
are clouded by sight
and we can’t see what’s
really then right.
Truly our judgment
is sometimes mislaid
and we don’t see all
the messes we’ve made.
Now and tomorrow
will work out alright
if we will trust God
with all of our might.
Letting Him help us
with all that we do,
we might find better
the things we can view.

As Time Moves Onwards

Our Christmas often
is found memories
seen in the settings
of lights upon trees.
Glittering snowflakes
bought from a store
as time moves onwards
to what we adore.
Sweet tasty morsels
of Christmas delight
we strung with popcorn
on into the night.
Singing sweet carols
of Christmas and more
that we had made there
not bought in a store.
As time moves onwards
I now just recall
hanging our popcorn
on a tree oh so tall.
Then many ornaments
glittered and shined
as every Christmas
found in my mind.
Now time has shadowed
those days long ago
as time moves onwards
to what I now know.
Seasons of real snow
found in our yard
landing so sweetly
as God’s Christmas card.
Each flake uniquely
falls there in place
and some fall finding
a smile on a face.
Christmastime’s found
as time moves onwards
giving the blessings
a heartbeat records.

The Hidden View

Behind blind eyes
are sights to see
the hidden view
from you and me.
This view of time
that many miss
is a moment
times consist.
The hidden view
behind our eyes
might just be
the largest size.
Yet we often
only see
things so small
in great degree.
We need to find
what is the need
within today
the finest seed
and plant it well
in me and you
and then see
the hidden view.

Fall Is Here

So many leaves
are turning colors
as they mimic
many others.
Fall is here
with leaves we find
here and there
from time to time.
The scenes around
are colored hues
yellows, reds
and sort of blues.
Fall is here
as time moves on
as I watch
from dusk to dawn.
The colors found
on every tree
are the tellers
fall for free.
Giving beauty
until the wind
blows them away.

Sometimes Isn’t

We sometimes think
we know what’s best
as pages turn
to fail the test.
We sometimes want
what isn’t good
as we’re found
Sometimes isn’t
always better
to walk blindly
in life’s weather.
Yet when sometimes
finds you standing
at a problems
troubled landing
look for Lord God
then and there
and then say
a little prayer.
Don’t let sometimes
be bad visions
for sometimes isn’t
best decisions.
Use commonsense
to get you by
when sometimes isn’t
found to fly.

for Oct 5, 2013

Today brings choices
to choose some new directions
away from the bad.

Left over hatred
can become as hand grenades
with the pin pulled out.

Wintertime’s vision
often sees but only snowflakes
describing its view.

Along with white snow
comes the shadows of winter
that come with the wind.

The weather says words
described within a story
as seasons of time.

While within worries
a second seems as hours
when in confusion.

Views from a mountain
can make things found down below
to very tiny.

Belief in true love
awakens the chances for it
if truth lives within.

Reliving sadness
within each daily turnstile
depreciates smiles.

Find time to find rest
when the day’s overwhelming
or sickness will come.

The moon shining bright
at the nights greatest moment
brings forth emotions.

Summertime’s season
is as words about swimming
and sun shining bright.

With love comes hopeful
as two hearts come together
and become as one.

Looking for flowers
needs you to detach the weeds
and see the beauty.

Sharing emotions
can help moments be better
and not be so bad.

A glance at today
can display wrong impressions
so don’t judge to fast

Windows of viewpoints
come as eventful expressions
displayed as some sights.

Riding bicycles
gives a way for exercise
while having some fun.

Soon comes too quickly
when not so soon is challenged
by your impatience.

Looking for the one
might display many wrong ones
before you find it.

Summertime’s shadows
still live vaguely when it’s gone
through your memories.

Mornings of winter
come as cold winds and snowflakes
and thoughts of Christmas.
