Your Own Gift


Hello my friends

How have ya been? I hope you are staying well. If not then
as well as possible :). Yea I know, we all have our ups and
downs with health issues huh. My old body has been running
low on steam lately. It seems I get tired quicker. I guess it’s
that part of life I was warned about LOL. Getting old! Yep
the Old pill hits hard sometimes. Well, Judy and I have been
doing a lot of just hanging around the house lately being that
neither of us has really felt like doing much. Hopefully after
the weather finally gets itself settled, both of us will get our
cameras out and head out on a little photo search. I have yet
to of gone through the pictures we took last time, being I have
not been up to par health wise, but I will :). I still along with
Judy will slip up to Farm Town, Pet Society and Yoville once
in a while, or as often as I can. Yet that only takes just a few
minutes and I can drift in and out without fear of messing up
something badly LOL. The weather up here is getting much
cooler much faster than it did last year or at least it seems
like it hehehe. Though my weather programs say that it may
slip back up to the lower 70’s for the next few days. It was
the high of 56 degrees yesterday (Saturday). Fall is coming
and it seems to be followed close behind by dear Mr. Winter.
When our heat came on, I knew that the weather was surely
changing LOL. I heard this noise and I spent a while trying
to figure out what it was until I walked past the furnace and
I heard it rumble LOL. It said in its own words, it’s getting
cold dude hehehe! It’s been raining off and on up here and
it’s scheduled to rain a tad this evening, but time will tell :).
I have a very special prayer request for a kid that I used to
sponsor in AA years ago. He is in some trouble and needs our
prayers. He’s no longer a kid now days, being it was around
1991-1993 that I sponsored him. He really needs our prayers.
So if you could, please send a prayer for KC. Ok so it’s on
with the journal. I have been doing a little extra in my YoVille
visits lately hehehe. I’ve been writing a haiku each day to
put in my coin run LOL. So each of the haikus are listed at
the end of all of the others that I wrote Saturday morning :).
I started writing haikus for my coin runs because it seemed
just a little bit better than, “coin run, see ya hehehe”. Yep,
I think I have spoiled a few there now too. They said they like
the haikus and want me to always do em. Ooooooooooopsy!
Hehehe, I may not do them every day, but I will most surely
do them once in a while LOL. Well, other than that, life here
on Mars seems pretty same old same old hehehe. Ok it may
not be Mars, but Mars Hill is just a little drive away hehehe.
I’m still trying to get used to the way of life up here, but it’s
still a tad out of my style. I guess I will spend my time as I
have and that is here waiting for pictures to snap and poems
to write. I thank God for giving me the ability to write as I
do, for it is the gift He gave to me. He also gave me all my
photography skills which I try to use as often as I can. God
gives us each one abilities. We can either stow them away
and act as though they don’t exist, or we can put them to
use. Many of you are using your abilities every day and you
may not even know it. They come so natural to you that you
do not see it. Like me playing the drums. It’s simple to me,
but others cannot see how I can move my hands so quickly.
Look into your heart and search your feelings. You might
discover your own gift and find that you have either been
using it all along or find a way to begin using it or them!
Well with that said, I guess it’s time for me to be venturing
back through all these words I’ve written and 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 like a flash to
that place of recollection that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. Ok so I might of exaggerated on the away like a
flash part LOL. It might be more like a little flicker hehe.
Yet I think I have stumbled upon a good phrase that may
work well for the title for today’s poem. Ok so now let’s
see what, if anything, I can do with it. Here goes!!!!

Your Own Gift

The days may hide
your minds detail
and cause your gifts
to not set sail.
Your own gift
may be just waiting
as time goes by
God gave you
and I a tool,
yet some uses it
as a fool.
Your own gift
may be inside
of which you always
just denied,
Yet the gift
God’s Given you
will always be
what guides you through.

Well I do hope that made a little bit of sense to ya. I just gave
myself an idea for today’s new Yoville haiku message hehehehe.
The time clock is ticking and Judy will soon be home, so I’ve
gotta find an ending for this hehehe. Here’s one. This will show
me how many actually read this LOL. My birthday is tomorrow.
Yeppers I will be 53 Aug 31. This should be interesting hehehe.
Just to see who actually reads down this far hehehehehehehehe!
To my good friend Ben Geurts. Thank you for all that you have
done for Judy and I. Your one in a million dude. Judy and I
will most surely be celebrating with you and your family no matter
if you are in Holland :). I am sure you will also be celebrating
with me! Well with that said I reckon I need to be searching for
that old off switch on myself, but before I do that I guess I need
to tell ya what I always do, yet I have already somewhat spilled
the beans on the haiku a little LOL. None the less, I wrote 10
more poems and 22 haiku plus the 7 I wrote for my YoVille
messages hehehe. Oh and I wrote one more Christmas poem to
get ya in the mood hehe. We simply love Christmas. Anyways
that’s all :)!!!! I hope you have a wonderful week and always
remember that Jesus loves you and we do too. Now where
is that dad gum off switch? I can never find it when I need it.
There you are you little sneaky off switch. I see ya hiding
behind my cereal bowl LOL! See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems
10 and 22 +7 hehehe

Found Within You

Wonderful moments
are found in the view
as we lose blind eyes
and look with anew.
Looking with heartfelt
and not demise
makes better moments
to see with our eyes.
So take your bitterness
and toss it away
all of your hateful
and then kneel and pray.
Wonderful moments
will come then to be
there with the prayerful
of all that you see.
You’ll see the moments
much better to view,
because they were heartfelt
and found within you.

A Simple Moment

A simple little flower
in a simple little place
can make a simple moment
with a smile upon my face.
A simple little fragrance
from a simple little view
can make a simple moment
to live in me and you.
A simple bit of peaceful
that a simple time has shown
can make a simple moment
with much time then to atone.
A simple little flower
that’s a simple bit of spring
can make a simple moment
to live in everything.
A simple little minute
that we often just ignore
can make a simple moment
that we might each just adore.

Might Never Let Go

When wayward enters
our peace is awry
leaving us standing
with just who and why.
Letters of vengeance
so many will write
making the wayward
to live day and night.
Keep your pen steady
and think it on through
before you go doing
the things that you do.
Sometimes the wayward
is just from a phase,
so don’t go adding
your anger for days.
Also when writing
make sure that you know
that what you’re writing
might never let go.

Closing of Summer

Summer is closing
its doors of its time
as fall is coming
with all its sublime.
Soon I’ll remember
the summer that passed
and view it surely
as shadows that cast.
Summer is ending
its own day and night
as it shows daily
it’s last times delight.
Cool breezes blowing
are showing so true
that fall is coming
with a colorful hue.
The closing of summer
is coming sincere
here in New England
the end of the year.

Here And Thereto

Pictures on the walls
seem to speak unto me
words that I’m hearing
and things I can see.
Sentences framed up
in stories detail
seems to in some way
make mind set sail.
Pictures we’ve taken
and hung on the wall
seem to in some way
stand out so tall.
My eyes go searching
for tidbits of then
to live as a moment
that time will begin.
My thoughts are swaying
from each little view
of all the pictures
from here and thereto.

Conquer The Storm

Storms are abounding
as anger will thrive
if you will store it
and keep it alive.
Storms of explosions
will tear down the road
if we don’t stop them
before they explode.
Let not your anger
to carry your heart
into the vastness
that time tears apart.
Storms will come surely
and cause ones to grieve,
yet we can conquer
if we each believe.
Believing in Jesus
can conquer the storm
and lead you surely
away from the harm.

Nows Morning Rain

When it is raining
I seem to regain
senses of value
from nows morning rain.
I watched the raindrops
falling with ease
as they each watered
to flowers and trees.
I stood there watching
the rain falling down
as it went splashing
right there on the ground.
I heard its singing
way up above me
as a pitter patter
with a little melody.
When it is raining
I listen to hear
all of its rhythm
that I so endear.

A Different Point of View

When in the middle
it’s hard to look out,
because in the middle
you’re all thereabout.
It pays to step back
and view what you see
a bit from the middle
another degree.
When in the middle
the others you view
may be a little
judgmental to you.
Step from the middle
a little today
and see the viewing
in another display,
for being too close
to the problems at hand
the middle a little
may not be so grand.
Let yourself see from
a different point of view
and then just maybe
you might then see you.

Christmastime Peace

White snow is coming
as time does detail
while I am dreaming
of Christmas so well.
I feel the essence
of snowflakes of white
landing in dream world
that I so delight.
Soon winter’s coming
with Christmas white snow
and the beginning
of Ho Ho Ho Ho.
Santa’s getting ready
to take on his flight
found in the middle
of Christmas Eve night.
White snow is coming
with summers release
of the fall colors
to Christmastime peace.

Before You’re To Start

A journey begins
one step at a time
through all the actions
of moments and mind.
Moments will prosper
if journeys are fed
better beginnings
for times there ahead.
A journey’s started
with times do and say
and they’ll determine
the sight of the day.
A journey begins
with just but a choice
leading the body
through action and voice.
Don’t let your journey
to tear you apart.

Minutes will gather
when our time has found sadness.
Learn to let it go.

Heard are the raindrops
from early morning showers
as they sing their song.

Scenes may empower,
yet it’s us that gives them strength
to change emotions.

Let yourself broaden
as life moves through its mazes.
The journey is better.

Long lines of people
stand and watch as time goes by,
yet many never see.

Portions of prayerful
in the minutes of each day
makes life much better.

Leaving your anger
without extinguishing it
can explode again.

A ready flower
awaits for all the raindrops
to nourish its roots.

Dandelions growing
are the sure sign of blessings
that come from the weeds.

Letters sent homeward
may be written deep inside.
Never ever seen.

Loneliness enters
as doors of time swing thereto
and enter the mind.

Patchwork ideas
make up many of our views.
We all have our own.

Wisdom is not gained
by one mere segment in time.
It’s gained through moments.

Because is a word
that so many over use
as their excuses.

Fragrance is entered
when flowers make themselves known.
The aroma’s so sweet.

People stop and stare
at someone’s times misfortune
and just walk away.

Time is a blessing
that we many times ignore
until it is over.

Onwards to today
through the portholes of timeframes.
Yesterday is gone.

A wise man’s silent
when he has nothing to say.
Actions speak louder.

Search for a blessing
and you will surely find one.
Don’t lose your focus.

Hands in the breezes
are the fluctuant flavors
of journeys in time.

Headaches that gather
surely make much confusion.
Take time for yourself.

The Hemisphere


Hello my friends

So another week has passed has it! How have you been? We’ve
been OK. The weather has been not too bad. Yet we still seem to
be getting more rain every time I turn around. Hehehehe I guess I
should just quit turning around huh! The temperatures up here are
drifting down to what seems as an early glimpse of fall here lately
as the week moves ahead and temps begin staying in the lower 70’s
and upper 60’s as this week ends. Yeppers, this is not what this kid
from Texas is used to for sure LOL, but I like it. Yet, I’ve a deep
feeling that because of these temperatures, it may mean that we’re
gonna have an early winter. God only knows! Well I guess I need
to be off of the weather report and on with the journal. It is though
a tad hard with the blasted clothes dryer squeaking as it does. I
guess I should of waited till after I finished the journal to do laundry.
Hehehe oh well, I’ll try to tune it out. Judy and I went up north
to Caribou Maine and visited with her daughters and grand kids
Wednesday and we had a great time. Me and the kids misbehaved
as usual hehehehehe as we played kickball in the hallway LOL!!!
Hey I’m just a big kid at heart and love to play with the kids. We
didn’t break anything LOL, so no spankings hehe :). Thursday
Judy’s daughters came down here and took Judy and went to visit
her mom and all. I just stared at the walls while they were gone.
Getting quite a relationship with these old walls lately mwa hahaha.
Yep, it can drive ya batty. That’s why I will many times just suffer
and try walking a bit outside. Ye ole legs and feet though love to
bicker when I do that though. I haven’t been feeling much like
doing any editing on all the pictures Judy and I took a week ago,
but I will. I am feeling pretty well today, so I may do that today.
Ooooopsy, there went the dryer buzzer telling me it is finished.
Be right back. Yeppers, now I don’t have to try and ignore that
dad blasted squeaking dryer. We will one day I’m sure have to
buy another dryer, but I’m gonna keep using this one until it
quits drying clothes squeaking and all hehehe. Hey, I might as
well have a dryer with arthritis to go along with its owner LOL!
I’m old, it’s old. We fit together hehehe. Ok so it’s onwards
with my rambling self. We finally got fed up with the wireless
router that Pioneer had sold us when we signed up for their
service and went to Wal-Mart and bought a new one. The junky
thing that Pioneer Wireless sold us was a far cry from new
and it worked just like garbage. Lost the signal every chance it
got and I had to reboot it always. It had a yellow blinking light
on it that I did not find out until I installed the new router meant
that it was not working properly. Oh well, we returned it and
they’re supposed to credit it to our account which should mean
that we will not have a bill next month LOL. We shall see!!
That is why I demanded a receipt. Ok so what else is going on
in this part of the hemisphere???? Not much to speak of. God
is keeping me with thoughts to add to my poetry and haiku
as He has always. I find often that God is watching over me
when I seem to run out of words. It seems that somehow I
am filled with abundance of words and meanings. So many
people cannot see how I can write all that I write in a matter
of hours and the fact is, God gives me the way. He gives us
each a way to do what we need to do, but often we will ignore
His Hands and strive for our own. I am just as guilty of that.
Our humanity steps up to bat and says I want it that way,
yet God sees the big picture. Try to let go of your own will
as often as you are able and let God help you to do what you
were meant to do. You may find the words coming to you
as they do to me often. Use the tools that He has given you
and you will surely be OK, for the road leads to Heaven.
I guess I need to be hushing and starting my little venture
back through to that place of recollection of words I have
written and see what word or phrase I can turn up to use
for the title for today’s brand new poem. So it’s away I go
like flash to that place I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I believe I may have found a good title for today’s poem.
Now let’s see what I can do with it hehehe…….Here goes!

The Hemisphere

The simple view
of here to there
is that which
that many share.
A simple cloud
or mountainside
the hemisphere
ones coincide.
Oh so many
wish to see
many blessings
given free.
So many view
in times detail,
the hemisphere
that’s not so well.
Share the blessings
that you view
with the many
unlike you.
Each hemisphere
is oh so grand
and it’s held
in God’s Own Hand.

Aug 23, 2009

I hope that made at least a little bit of sense to ya LOL. I never
know if ones will understand or not. Oh well, I tried. So I guess
I need to be trying to find that old off switch on myself so I can go
and fold clothes huh, yet before I do that I need to tell ya what I seem
to always tell ya hehehe and that is, I wrote some more poems and
yes some more haiku. I added a few of the haiku that I wrote and
put in my YoVille messages. I wrote 10 poems again, yet 2 of them
are early Christmas poems. I also wrote 24 haiku which includes
the few that I wrote for my Yoville messages. So, ya got a lot to
sink your teeth (or dentures) into. With that said, have a wonderful
week and remember Jesus loves you and we do too. Now where’s
that dad gum off switch hiding at???? I sure wish it would quit
hiding from me LOL. Found it glimmering in the restroom hehehe.
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems.
10 and 22 + 2 🙂 hehe

Paint Wishes

Some paint a window
with only one view
as they are looking
to see what they do.
Some are just seeing
what they wish to see
as others search for
another degree.
Some paint a doorway
as where they will go
leaving behind them
all that they know.
Yet some are painting
their windows and doors
with all the visions
of wanting and mores.
So are you painting
your daily cuisine
with what you wish for
or what that you’ve seen?
You can paint wishes
onto all you view
and then add hopeful
that may just come true.

Flutters of Leaves

Raindrops are falling
on an August filled day
leaving the feelings
that won’t go away.
With a little breeze
that comes late at night
raindrops are falling
to fill my delight.
With every essence
of raindrops that fall
I feel the blessings
that stand out so tall.
The night is so silent
with only a breeze
and all that echoes
is rustling of leaves.
Trees in the distance
are heard so to say
as flutters of leaves
till dawning of day.
Raindrops are falling,
yet lightly they speak
words in a memoir
of all that they seek.

Filling The Bill

Wise is a minute
that time doesn’t speed
as it is seeking
what’s truly the need.
Many though hurry
and do not think through
all that a minute
of time then will do.
Then wisdom’s gathered
due to the hurry
to see what they see.
Wise is a minute
that time is allowed
and not just rushed on
with hurry and proud.
Pride is the issue
so often ones feel
when they think hurry
is filling the bill.

Not Be In Sync

Ways of our days
are sometimes not sweet
as many seconds
will try to compete.
Use every moment
as best that you can
as you continue
with a God given plan.
Let not your worries
to tear you into,
for moments pass
and surely will you.
Ways of our days
may seem out of line,
yet they may lead to
a better design.
Let your time breathe
as it takes on its stride
and surely answers
will come then inside,
for your tomorrows
may not be in sync
with all your worries
and all that you think.

Wanting For Christmas

Hands in dream worlds
are reaching for snow
while times December
is so long ago.
Hands in dream worlds
seek for the place
found in the boundaries
sweet snowy lace.
Tender reflections
are subsequent scenes
found in the hands of
worlds full of dreams.
I seem to reach for
Christmas of white
as I remember it,
as I delight.
Hands in dream worlds
seem to be found
wanting for Christmas
to hurry to town.

Some Won’t Delight

More than a minute,
and less than a day,
time will continue
its own special way.
Many a minute
will surely come true,
yet many minutes
will only be new.
Times in a gateway
will lead to and fro
as we continue
to go where we go,
yet many turnstiles
need a little oil
as they go squeaking
with times that we toil.
More than a vision
and less than a sight,
some will see blessings
and some won’t delight.

The View

Looking back often
I see where I turned
leaving the essence
of bridges I burned,
yet now while looking
I see where I flawed
not seeking blessings
given from God.
Some of the views
at times took my breath
making me feeling
as coming of death,
yet I continued
with times down the road
looking back often
see all the load.
I now see blessings
from troubles back when
that help me often
with time and agin.
Looking back often
I now see the view
that of Lord Jesus
and always so true.

It’s Christmas Design

Portholes through time
to December days
make me remember
the white snowy gaze.
Lights were all glowing
with red, blue and green
and then enhancing
the Christmas white scene.
Portholes through time
are found in a wink
as I am dreaming
the way that I think.
Sweet Christmas smells
just seem to be found
grabbing my senses
of all there around.
White snow is falling
within this porthole
as it’s remembered
deep down in my soul.
The porthole opens
and closes with time
and lets me visit
this Christmas design

Just Different

Heard are the voices
that many will find
sounding like people
of a different design.
So many people
in a different array
share this world surely
with day after day.
Do you hear voices
much different than you?
They may be doing
the same as you do.
Let not your judgment
be clouded by fright,
for you may miss on
a wonderful sight.
Sometimes what’s showing
is not what’s within,
so don’t just worry
what’s color of skin.
Also the language
and also the phrase
may be just different
than your special ways.

Giving By Praying

Pockets full of hope
can fill many dreams
giving the blessings
of much better scenes.
A little bit of hope
can paint a better view
found on a canvass
of both me and you.
We together gathered
as we together pray
fill the many pockets
with hopeful each day.
Help me to fill them
those pockets so poor
by giving blessings
from Jesus so pure.
Giving by praying
for all those in need
fills up the pockets
with hopeful indeed.

for Aug 21-22, 2009

The first 3 are ones I wrote for my YoVille
messages August 19-21 2009 hehehehe.
The last two are the Yoville haiku I shared
for August 22 and 23, 2009 (Saturday) and
today (Sunday) LOL If ya don’t know what
YoVille is,,,,hehe well, Oh well 🙂

The grace of minutes
may be what you don’t enjoy,
yet you are needing.

A jumbled up life
might be results of your own.
Some coins are just coins.

Starry is the time
that’s spent in the days gone by,
that many forget.

The poets peace
is found in the reflections
as rivers of words

Many see cloudbursts,
yet many see the rainbow
that comes from the rain.

Stories are written
as moments time passages
that open the mind.

A sequential second
that comes from every minute
leads us to somewhere.

Hard minded people
from their hard minded timeframes
may find themselves scared.

Peace is a moment
followed by what was trouble.
The good needs the bad.

Secondary breaths
are not as good as the first.
First is remembered.

Leaves that are blowing
are memories of a breeze
flavored with passion.

Summer’s soon over
as fall comes beckoning time
with leaves of color.

Me is a wording
which many will overuse
when they are lonely.

Hearts are the blessings
found in a moment of prayer.
Together hearts heal.

Wisdom is weakened
when ones think they don’t need it,
yet time makes it strong.

Held is a flower
by the Earth in tender hands
with fibers of love.

Now is a moment
that God’s given us today.
Now use it wisely.

Leaders of people
may not seem at all that way
until time is right.

A feather floats down
when the breeze ceases to blow,
yet it lands with ease.

Don’t let a moment
to take away all your peace.
A moment will pass.

Learning is surely,
but some learn differently,
so be who you are.

Lost is a passion
when it’s filled with emptiness.
Fill it with true love.

God’s Handiwork


Hello my friends

How’s it going with you this week or weekend as the case may be?
I hope you’re hanging in there. Judy and I have been keeping the
windows and doors open to let in a breeze or two LOL. I haven’t
taken off all the storm windows, being a few of the windows don’t
have good screens. Don’t want any more bugs in here than get in
already LOL. The Hot Shot No Pest Strips seems to be doing good.
We haven’t had trouble from the flies. Last year they almost drove
me nuts hehehe. I told Judy to keep and eye out for those fly strips
and she found a few and grabbed a hand full hehehe. LOL sounds
like a commercial don’t it :). Naw, just happy as a lark that I’m not
being pestered with black flies this year. Judy and I took our little
sightseeing photo drive last Thursday and we got a few good shots.
We have though decided that if we’re going back to Deer Isle later
this fall for more pictures, we’re taking a different route. Those
roads were horrible that we were on. I don’t care if we’ve gotta go
50 miles or more out of our way LOL,,,,We’re not taking the path
that we took Thursday again. Heck, we may even see some great
sights worth a snap shot or two on a different route. Yet that is a
ways away from today and I have time to use my Trip maker and
find an alternate route to take. We may have to stay on I-95 a tad
longer, but hey, it’s worth it to elude the roads 175 and thereabouts.
The weather has been on the warm side for the passed few days up
here. Hey, for up here, 89 F is hot. Today’s high is supposed to be
around 81 F though. Tomorrow and Tuesday are supposed to get
back up to 87 F. Yet then the temps go back down reaching the 70’s
by the end of the week. Then by next week it’s supposed to be in the
upper 60’s hehe Fahrenheit of course. We would be frying if it were
Celsius LOL!!! Ok, enough with the weather update hehehe. I seem
like a weather forecaster don’t I :). Naw, I just have good weather
programs on my PC. Not just one, but many and I compare them
together to get an accurate or semi accurate forecast :). Let’s see,
what else is in the news?? My musician friend Dave from Texas
is in Caribou Maine now visiting his mom. He called me the other
day to tell me that he won’t be able to make it down to jam. That
made me rather sad. I was really looking forward to seeing him :(.
Oh well, maybe one day I will see somebody LOL,,,,,,,,, yea right!
I wish my health were better and I would try to get a flight to Texas.
Oh and please don’t ask what’s wrong LOL. If ya don’t know then
it would take me forever to explain hehehehe!!! Oh well, that’s life.
Time to move along with the journal and get off of that subject :).
Judy and I are hoping to be able to make it to Caribou Wednesday
to see her daughters and grandkids. Too bad Dave will already
be back in Texas then. LOL Judy and I have to make tons of stops
anywhere we drive to, being I have no colon and no colostomy bag.
It usually take us an hour longer getting anywhere with me and my
bathroom breaks LOL. Sure wish they would of known more about
Ulcerative Colitis in the early 90’s LOL. It makes for a mere struggle
to go anywhere anymore. Yet when we do go ANYWHERE, I load
my camera in the car in hopes of finally seeing and getting a picture
of a bull moose. Yet I do take pictures often as she is driving and I
even sometimes get some great shots of landscapes that way LOL.
I never get tired of looking at God’s handiwork and getting a little
on film or hehehe photo card, being I don’t use film anymore hehe.
Could you imagine how much film I would go through in a week :)!
God paints pictures all around us for us to see, yet we’re many times
moving too quick to see them, so take the time to slow down ever so
often and look at what God has done. You may be surprised at what
all you’ve missed in your day to day rush. Well, it’s time for me to
be taking my little trip back through my words and 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 recollection that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I do believe I found a good title. Now
let’s see what I can do with it if anything at all LOL!!!

God’s Handiwork

Pictures are hanging
in many a place
there as the blessings
from God’s Holy Grace.
God’s handiwork
is here over there
so to be moments
of answers to prayer.
So many miss them
those blessings each day
as they go onwards
their own hurried way.
Take a little time now
to search and to find
all of the blessings
to help you unwind.
Pictures are hanging
as photos for free,
yet we need slow down
and take time to see.

Well, there it is. Good bad or indifferent LOL. I guess I need to be
finding that off switch on myself before Judy gets home from work.
She is off again Wednesday and Thursday and I think it’s Wednesday
that we are going up to Caribou to see the kids. That will be nice.
Yet I still wish Dave could be there :(. I miss my friends. Oh well,
enough with the sadness. Time to try and cheer up. Judy is supposed
to stop and get me some orange juice on her way home. Trying to
lay off the caffeine being it kind of adds to my problems a tad hehehe.
Not a lot being everything runs right through me LOL FAST. I guess
I need to be telling ya about the poems huh hehehe. Yeppers I wrote
another load full of poems. 10 poems with one semi Christmas poem
in the midst of em. Yes I wrote some haiku, yet I sort of got carried
away and wrote 31 by accident hehehe. Hey, when I start writing,
I can’t always keep track of how many I’ve done. The thoughts just
seem to come in by truck loads :). In any event, I hope you enjoy a
few of em at least. Now it’s time to get ready to search my off switch,
but before I do that, Have a wonderful week and remember Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now where’s that confounded off switch
hiding this week LOL?????????? I remember hehehehe It’s in the
refrigerator LOL…..See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems.
10 and 22 + 9 hehehe

Morning So Sweet

In the night air
the coolness we feel
is that of blessings
so very real.
In through the windows
the night air just flows
bringing its fragrance
where all it goes.
I can smell morning
as dawns early light
saying it’s ending
the long lasting night.
In the night air
the words in a way
say soon is coming
the dawn of new day.
I can feel sweetly
the night air complete
ending its journey
with morning so sweet.

Stories Inside

Reading a sentence
with not a word
means to look closely
to seen and not heard.
Reading a story
that you cannot hear
might need you being
a bit more sincere.
So listen closely
to what ones will say
as they continue
their own special way.
Reading a moment
that times will foretell
may not be displayed
too very well,
so let your heartbeat
take it in stride
as you let trueness
of stories inside.

It May Not Be Clear

Within one hand
ones will be real good,
on the other hand
a bit misunderstood.
Within one hand
our views will be found,
on the other hand
they may not be sound.
Within one hand
we might not be true,
on the other hand
it may just be you.
Within one hand
our choice may be right,
on the other hand
it may be our light.
Within one hand
the echo’s sincere,
on the other hand
it may not be clear.

Summer Will Cease

Paintings of summer
now hang oh so tall
yet they will leave
with beginning of fall.
In every painting
the colors I see
now display summer
to the greatest degree.
yet soon the summer
will leave us to view
fall colors painted
from here thereunto.
Paintings of summer
now shine in the sun
with all the moments
that time has begun,
but as I said
soon summer will cease
leaving us paintings
of fall color peace.

In A Shadow

Just in a shadow
right now might appear
seeming as minutes
of thens yesteryear.
Just in a shadow
the fragrance you view
may just be minutes
not very true.
So if a shadow
displays what you feel
make sure you see
what it tries to conceal.
Sometimes the shadows
may not be right
displaying what all
that we delight.
Just in a shadow
there may be a scene
that holds the moments
you know not what mean.

God’s Brush

Wild winters mornings
with white snow piled high
is what’s remembered
I cannot deny.
Cold winters mornings
with breezes that blow
make many mountains
from fresh fallen snow.
Scenes in the distance
are glaring and white
glistening in sunshine’s
bright morning light.
On winters mornings
I can remember
the essence of Christmas
found in December.
Wild winters mornings
are painted all around
with that of snowfall
there on the ground.
Even on the hillsides
textured so true
there is the display
of white snowy hue.
Cold winters mornings
are painted so lush
with all the white snow
found on God’s brush.

I Surely Miss

Things I remember
and times I recall
are all the blessings
of winter to fall.
Every little moment
will somehow be found
as I remember
with times going round.
Things I remember
and times I can see
paint all the pictures
that happened to me.
I view the minutes
with difference each day
as they’re remembered
their own special way.
Things I remember
and now reminisce
bring me the minutes
that I surely miss.

Written On The Wall

Links to tomorrow
are found in today
as they’re connected
in some special way.
We may not see them
the links of the chain
that link tomorrow
to times and again.
Scenes in a threshold
swing to and fro
as they’re tomorrows
choose where to go.
Links to tomorrow
may not be good
and what we’re seeing
a bit misunderstood.
Look close the threshold
and try to foretell
whether it’s goodness
or just leads to Hell.
You may see answers
written on the wall
that say to enter
or not to at all.

You’ll Stay In Line

Listen to your heart,
but also your mind
and maybe answers
you might then find.
Your mind may not
agree with your heart
and it makes sometimes
then hard to start.
Sometimes your mind
is right so to say
and your own heartbeat
wrong then that day.
That’s why it’s better
to pray for God’s Will
before you let heartbeats
and minds to fulfill.
Listen to your heart,
yet also your mind
and also God’s word
and you’ll stay in line.

The Treasures

Times we hold onto
and things we release
might be the treasures
leading to peace.
Treasures in measures
of whethers and ways
are many portals
of times in a maze.
So many treasures
are hidden from view
and at the moment
may not seem so true.
Yet there are treasures
in each day ahead
found in the blessings
of many we dread.
The treasures may be
what now is dismay
as we look back
on some future day.

Trouble finds trouble
when the doors all swing the same.
Look for better ways.

Little is a dime store
with only dollar items.
Be just who you are.

Waves of a rhythm
are patterns of many people.
Some cause the wakes.

Time becomes jumbled
as pages are quickly turned.
Slow down and enjoy.

Many trails are blazed
with the flags of our worries
leaving only dust.

A flare gun is shot
and the race of life begins,
yet do any win?

Plant now your wisdom
that you’ve gained from time gone by.
Let others harvest.

Don’t be a clinger
hanging on to what that’s done.
Let time go its way.

We are each novice
then pages make the journey
and make us each skilled.

Trials are teachers
that may become grueling,
yet they are needed.

Summer makes headway
with the mornings beginning.
It must start somewhere.

Freshly plowed meadows
bring essence of aroma
that starts me sneezing :).

Wintertime’s coming,
yet it must still pass through fall
with paths to follow.

A hand full of dreams
in a pocket full of time
leaves hope there within.

Wise is the patient,
for impatient causes pain
that patience avoids.

Sunny summer days
make highlights out of blossoms
that began in spring.

Yearning for many
makes hearts to become tainted
with only but want.

Time is a giver
that God has adorned each day,
yet many want more.

The tide flows inwards
and then it takes what it will
back out to the sea.

Many knots are tied
when love is within full bloom,
yet many slip loose.

Never is a word
that many will over use
as they are growing.

A chain becomes weak
if the links are not cared for.
Take care of your chain.

Some see tomorrow
while others see yesterday
with no forgiveness.

Let your mind to fly
on the wings of dreamers birds
when you’re needing rest.

Look passed the moment
when the moment is unclear
then look once again.

Cars in the distance
are roaring on down the road
as ghost of the day.

Carefully doorways
need be entered or yet not.
Be a bit cautious.

Many view Heaven
as a place that time will end.
I think it begins.

Gracious is Lord God
with the patience that He has
for each one of us.

We say many words
many never understand,
yet our smiles they know.

The minds of many
head down paths in search of coins
yet find only few.

Passed The Torment


Hello my friends

How’s the weather in your part of the world? It’s been pretty
nice the last few days up here. In the mid 70’s and the rain has
finally backed off a tad LOL. Judy and I weren’t able to do our
picture taking cruise last Thursday due to neither of us feeling
up to it. Maybe this Thursday we will do it hehehe. God only
knows. I just got through posting an ad in Craig’s List in hopes
of finding SOMEONE up here that wants to play some music.
Hope I find somebody. I am totally bored of playing by myself.
I’m used to playing with a band. Anyways, maybe something
will happen. Until then, I guess I will continue playing by myself
and doing a few videos here and there LOL. Ok, so it’s onwards
to another topic. Judy’s place of business is doing OK, yet they
had to hire a new guy to help with issues. One of the cooks was
in an car accident and bruised up his ribs and face. He is doing
OK and may be back to work this week. The new guy will then
go to temporary as he was told he would when hired. Other
than that, Judy and I are still playing the games on FaceBook.
LOL, I feel at times like a little kid playing Pet Society and all
the others, yet they do fill up the empty space when I can’t find
anything else to do, which I might add, is OFTEN. Wish we
lived in town, but we don’t, so I do the best that I can to hang
onto my sanity hehe hehe. I’m hoping that my buddy Dave
can make it down from Caribou to play a little before he has
to go back home to Texas. Until then, I’ll just pray and play
alone hehehe. Of course I will continue to play as I have, no
matter one way or another LOL if I have no choice. There’s
not much else to tell ya about, being it’s pretty much the same
as it was last week hehehe only a different day. Yep, up this
ways, life don’t change much other than snow/cold/rain/wind/
cold/snow/cold /snow/cold/snow/cold hehehe, ya get my drift!
The poetic part of my hemisphere is still doing its thing hehehe.
I though still don’t actually begin writing my thoughts down
until maybe Thursday, Friday or Saturday LOL. It seems to
work for me. I’ll sit down and revisit my thoughts and the
poems begin to flow. On most occasions, I will write most
of the poems and haiku within a 3 hour period LOL. Yet I
do spend a bit longer reading back over them checking for
ye ole typo’s LOL. I never know what’s gonna come out of
my head. This week I wrote a couple of Christmas poems :).
Yes I love Christmas and I love snow To A DEGREE!!!!!!!!
Hehehe if you’ve ever been up here during the LLLOOONG
winter or ya live up here then I’m sure ya understand hehehe.
I reckon if ya live in the neighboring states you also know
what I’m talking about LOL. I’m used to maybe 1 inch of
snow at the max and winter only lasting maybe two months
with the low of at the maximum 15 degrees for a day or so.
Not even close to the winters up here LOL, Not even close!
Yet God manages to put much beauty in the midst of it all
and makes it worth while. Yes, sometimes we need to see
a little misery to be able to see the good. It’s like climbing a
mountain. The climb is torment, yet the view is stupendous.
Let yourself look passed the torment to see what’s awaiting.
Heaven is a wonderful place. Make peace with God today
and take Him into your heart for we never know when our
time on Earth will be up. Do the best that you can today,
for tomorrow has no guarantee. I guess it’s time for me to
be taking my little venture back through all I’ve written to
that place of recollection and 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 off I go to that reminiscing place that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I found me a good
title, Now let’s see what if anything hehe I can do with it.

Passed The Torment

Storms of value
come and go
days surrounding
good and woe.
Times of planting
then to reap
find the value
many keep.
Passed the torment
many find
sometimes better
peace of mind.
Yet the midst of
many fail
and find burdens
daily well.
Holes of troubles
buckets pull
passed the torments
living school.
Let this moment
that you’ve found
help you search
for solid ground.
God is there now
waiting true
passed the torment
with anew.

Ok, so there hehehe. I hope that made a little bit of sense to ya.
I know it’s not my best, but I tried. Actually I never know what
poems are going to make sense to others. Many times it will be
the ones I thought that were not that great. So only God knows
who they are meant for! It may be you :). Well, I guess I need
to be finding that old off switch on myself so I can get started
with washing the dishes and finding something to cook Judy and
I for dinner for when she gets home. So, before I find and click
that old off switch, I guess I need to tell ya what I tell ya every
week. Hehe actually I kind of spilled the beans in the other half
of this journal didn’t I LOL. Yeppers, I wrote 2 Christmas poems
to go with the tons of others that my good friend Ben Geurts has
published on his Old Fashioned Christmas site. His link’s located
at the end of this journal along with a few other wonderful links :).
Back to the poems LOL, Yeppers I wrote 10 poems AGAIN and
22 haiku AGAIN hehehe. Those seem to be the magic numbers :).
With that said I reckon it’s time to be saying goodbye and search
for that old off switch, So have a wonderful week and remember
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now where’s that bloody off switch
hiding this time. LOL, Ain’t it always in the last place ya look :),
which means stop looking :). If you keep looking for things after
you’ve found them, it means a few of your marbles have gone and
rolled away LOL. Found it under all my paper work, UGH and
double UGH hehehehe! Reaching for the off switch and CLICK,
See ya zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems
You guess it 🙂
10 and 22 hehehe

Morning’s Conclusion

Morning whispers
sounds of the leaves
blowing briskly
high in the trees.
Morning’s greetings
are but a sound
sometimes as echoes
of all there around.
Morning whispers
a silent hello
while it continues
to put on its show.
Morning awakens
bringing its phase
painting the pictures
of coming of days.
Morning is shadows
of all that is left
found in the nighttimes
own very best.
Morning’s conclusion
says in a way
nighttime has ended
so welcome today.

Where and Why

In the moment
time may cease
leaving but a
ounce of peace.
Moments makings
may be found
with us searching
for true ground.
In the moment
we may find
shadows of a
different mind.
Lessons surely
come and go
in the moment
how to grow.
Though so many
look away
and don’t seek
a better day.
In the moment
ones may die
leaving questions
where and why.

Then After Fall

Summer has spoken
its words so clear
as every essence
I see and I hear.
Scenes all around me
seem to just say
summer has spoken
with day after day.
My eyes are seeking
for times oh so great
as of Christmastime
I anticipate.
Blessings on hillsides
painted so true
white all around me,
Christmas anew.
Summer has spoken
and is soon to cease
leaving us pictures
of fall color peace.
Then after fall
I surely will find
Christmas with flavors
inside of my mind.

May Need To See

Hands sometimes grasping
are seeking to find
what that is maybe
bad for the mind.
Hands in a blender
describe so to say
many just grasping
day after day.
Sometimes the troubles
turn into gain
as there are lessons
after the pain.
Looking at minutes
might seem rather long,
yet in a moment
time will be gone.
Hands that are reaching
may need to see
how that a moment
can change you and me.

Dreams As A Friend

Winter is coming
with white fallen snow
soon after summer
has ended its show.
Winter is waiting
for its time and phase
to be the picture
of wonderful days.
Winter brings Christmas
with every times scene
painting the hillsides
with white over green.
Winter is coming
as summer is found
saying it’s over
with all there around.
Christmas will come then
and surely I’ll see
white snow just glistening
on every tree.
Yet as I’m waiting
for summer to end
I’ll just remember
my dreams as a friend.

Let Someone Help You

Heartbeats of many
are heard as a sigh
when some will silently
tell ones goodbye.
Many will store
all their feelings inside
while they’re just watching
their time coincide.
Heartbeats of many
will sometimes fall prey
to all the burdens
of day after day.
Not letting others
to know how they feel
will make problems grow
that they try to conceal.
Let now your heartbeat
to take on the stride
letting some others
to be then inside.
Let someone help you
to take on your quest
and you may find then
your troubles are less.

Now Through December

Grab a sweet sunset
and hold it tight
as time slips slowly
into the night.
Hold that sweet sunset
as night displays
times you’re awaiting
of coming of days.
Grab and hold tightly
the sunset’s prelude
and don’t let it end
as just misconstrued.
Remember that sunset
deep in your heart
when you’re in nighttimes
dreamland of art.
Grab a sweet sunset
you can remember
of all the seasons
now through December.

What God’s Painted

Heaven sent rainbows
paint up the skies
with many questions
of wonders and whys.
God gives the beauty
so great then to see
Heaven sent rainbows
for you and for me.
They are so blissful
painted so fine
with all the colors
in every design.
Spray out some water
from an old water hose
and you may see then
some little rainbows.
Heaven sent rainbows
colored just right
are what God’s painted
to be our delight.

Wisdom is Misunderstood

Wisdom is gathered
as time moves along
and we think most days
we’ve done it wrong.
Maybe the turmoil
and maybe the pain,
might at this moment
drive us insane,
yet it’s the turnstile
that needs to play
so as to give you
lessons today.
Wisdom is sometimes
not clearly seen
and it may play out
as angry and mean.
So often wisdom
is misunderstood
and those around then
not see the good.

Today’s Sorrow

Yesterday’s storm clouds
might be today’s sun
needed in some way
to get some good done.
When in a cloud burst
know there’s a clue
why that the timeframe’s
happening to you.
Sometimes a storm cloud
may need to be
so as to help you
to grow a degree.
Yesterday’s storm cloud
might just be rain
pouring down lessons
to help you to gain.
Look passed the storm clouds
and on to tomorrow
and know that there’s reasons
for today’s sorrow.

Pictures we’re painting
are lessons of days gone by.
Time is an artist.

Leave your yesterdays
with a clear open mind.
You may learn something.

The links of a chain
hold the anchor to the ship.
Without them, it drifts.

Peace is what’s needed
to make great every place
yet God must be there.

Yearn for the blessings
and be thankful for troubles,
blessings in disguise.

Old withered pictures
with the cracked and peeling paint
may display artwork.

The length of today
is the way that you view it.
Choose your dilemma.

Hands in cookie jars
are children’s points of Heaven,
reaching for the stars.

The glimmer of now
may be embers tomorrow
that’s needing to pass.

Windows of prayerful
make days pass more peacefully,
so give it to God.

Yearning another’s
may just burden you deeply.
Be happy with yours.

Feel the breeze blowing
as it rushes passed your mind.
You will find blessings.

Heart to heart people
in disheartened atmospheres
forget who they are.

Letters from my home
flavor minutes with sweetness,
yet now are a dream.

Lasting is the scene
of the memorized moments
that live in the mind.

I can see the clouds
as they float high in the sky
with journeys of time.

Temporal moments
are paintings to remember,
for they will be gone.

Is your glass filling
with wisdom that is needed
or is it empty?

A cool summers breeze
on a day just like today
makes now not so bad.

Morning will follow
the nightlong shadowed pathway
and display the truth.

Horror is detail
painted as what many see.
We may never know.

While pitching a tent
make sure that the direction
doesn’t face the sea.

Hello my friends

How are you today? Has your weekend been a fairly decent one?
I hope it has. This passed week has been another some what rainy
one, yet it seems to have kept the temperature down as well. Not
that it ever actually gets hot up here LOL, but it do get humid after
the rains and my body turns to Velcro LOL. It sticks to everything.
Judy and I are planning on taking a picture taking cruise this coming
Thursday being my PC weather program says it’s not supposed to rain
that day. I hope it’s right hehehe. This kid needs to get out and away
from this house for a while before he goes nuts :). My friend David
from Texas is supposed to be coming up to Caribou August 13 to see
his mom and he said he might try to drive down to New Limerick if
he can squeeze it in. He wants to play some music with me. We used
to jam together many years ago and we were actually pretty good :).
I can understand if he doesn’t make it down though, being I know he
hasn’t seen his mom in years. I would want to spend much of my
time with my mom as well. Oh well, I’ll leave the light on for ya dude,
hehehe just like Motel 6 LOL. If we do get to jam, I’ll do a little video
of us. That would be a treasure to me and I’m sure to you as well.
The weather today is supposed be high of 75 F and yes you guessed it,
hehehehe rain showers this evening AGAIN. I think the rain is trying
to see if it can compete with the snow LOL. It snows about 5 months
out of the year up here if not more LOL. Winter is slowly making
its come back. It will be here before we know it. Hehehe, Ok we’ll
know it LOL. We’ll wake up and brrrrrrrrrrrrr, turn on the heater.
My mom wants to come back up and my sister has already made
the mention that she’s saving up for next summer so her and mom
can come up again. Peggy says she will not have things going as
she did last year God willing. She wants to spend a little more time
with us and sight seeing. They didn’t get to see much last summer.
I told mom to come up during the winter hehehehe, and she said no
way Jose. She don’t do cold and snow hehehehe. Especially tons
of snow hehe. I’m dealing with it, for I have no choice but to deal
with it hehehe. I guess I could stay inside allllllllll winter long and
do as a bear, hibernate, yet I ain’t a home body and I gotta get out
ever so often and breathe. Plus I don’t do hibernating, because hehe
it involves sleeping and that’s something I cannot do much of with
my health issues LOL. I’d be an irritated bear hehehe grrrrrrrrrrr.
Yet God manages to put beauty within many of the surroundings
and it makes living up here a little more tolerable. I love to sight
see. Both of us do, but I think I do just a tad more, being it’s my
way of seeking smiles. I can find a smile on a hillside or a lake
that is off in the distance. Maybe even a windmill churning away
as it provides means for ones to live. Yes, I love to sight see and
find what I can photograph. I will many times leave out nothing.
Hehehe sometimes I will snap away as Judy drives down the road.
I’ve gotten a lot of great pictures that way :). God has put many
things for us to look at and even take a snap shot or two. I think
way too many of us will hole up in the house and not even take a
look to see what’s beyond their horizon. Sometimes you’ve gotta
look passed the immediate surroundings to see the beauty. Take
the time today or maybe tomorrow to look at what God has put
for you to view. Take a camera with you if you can and snap a
few pictures to reminisce at a later date and regain that moment.
That’s what we do :). OK with that said, I guess I need to be off
to my little place of recollection of passed things written and see
if I can find a good word or phrase that I can use for the title of
today’s poem. So it’s off I go to that little place that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I found a good title. Now let’s
see what I can do with it LOL…..Here goes nothing!!!


Let yourself breathe
a breath of today
one that believes
of another fine way.
Breathe in the sights
of scenes here and there
as you go searching
for a new breath of air.
Let all God’s blessings
be seen as you view
while you are breathing
the here thereunto.
Let yourself breathe
the best you can find
and let it help you
to clear up your mind.
Breathe in with patience
and love as you go
as you go searching
for what does bestow.

I hope that I made a little sense with that poem :). Also I hope I didn’t
bore ya to tears with my rambling LOL!!! It’s beginning to look like rain
outside. Yeppers, Mr. Sunshine is leaving us once again. Or hehehehe
is that Mrs. Sunshine :)??? Hehehe I don’t know and frankly my dear I
don’t give a frappe hehehe. Right now there’s a cool breeze blowing and
it feels good. My mom said ship her some of this down to her in Texas.
I asked her if she also wanted me to ship some of our winter cccccccold
with snow and she said in so many words Nope no way hehehe. Oh well,
hehehe I tried. Not that I could ship it if I wanted to hehehe, because
I could make a fortune sending it to people that have never seen snow :).
Of course they would all be leaning on the return policy LOL! Well,
my better half just walked in from work, so I need to be winding this up.
I hope I have said something that has made you either smile or think or
maybe both hehe. I guess I need to be searching for that old off switch
on myself, but before I do that, I will tell ya what I always do and that
is, I wrote some more poems and haikus. I hope a few of them touch
base with ya. Have a wonderful week and remember that Jesus loves
you and we do too. Now where’s that off switch hiding this time????
Yo, it’s stuck to the window screen talking to a fly LOL. Got it :).
Not the fly hehehe!!!!! See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Step Anew

One by one
and two by two
we go moving
me and you.
Some are walking
days alone
the only way
they’ve ever known.
One by one
is their own way
moving as they
do each day.
Two by two
though many move
seeming as a
daily groove.
We have patterns
that we find
that are daily
on our mind.
One by one
and two by two
sometimes needs a
step anew.

Goodbyes and Hellos

Windows and curtains
have places in time
some to be opened
and some hid behind.
Places and patterns
are painted in style
sometimes a minute
and sometimes a mile.
Hands held together
are sometimes the fad
yet many hands are
found lonely and sad.
Doorways we enter
will sometimes conclude
better for many,
yet some misconstrued.
Windows and curtains
we open and close
are filled with many
goodbyes and hellos.

The Format of Morning

The format of morning
is dawns greatest scene
sometimes with paintings
with bright red and green.
Colors come playing
in dawn of the day
as they find pictures
of words which to say.
Dawn paints stories
of morning from night
while it so slowly
displays its delight.
With every format
it displays so well
paintings of mornings
we yearn to foretell.
God gives the pictures
as each day’s anew
the format of morning
of red green and blue,

Yesterdays Mind

Since my own yesterday
I’ve learn now today
how to better than
I did another day.
We’ve got our yesterdays
lessons we’ve found
that can each guide us
to better solid ground.
Yesterdays journey
might of been bittersweet,
yet we can learn then
the right things to eat.
Lessons from turnstiles
of pathways we’ve seen
can turn to wisdom
to show what they mean.
God allows yesterdays
times to unwind
so we can learn from
our yesterdays mind.

Timeless Delights

Flowers are growing
as I look outside
looking with passion
with eyes opened wide.
I’m seeking flavors
of colors to see
such as some roses
red velvet for me.
My eyes are searching
from here thereunto
for all the colors
of red green and blue.
I seek the blessings
of a daily cuisine
blended together
if you know what I mean.
The sunshine above me
is making highlights
of all God’s blessings
of timeless delights.

Footsteps on Gravel

Footsteps on gravel
will crunch as they go
on down the pathway
of time to and fro.
Footsteps on gravel
can sometimes be heard
as conversations
of word after word.
Listen real closely
as it makes its sound
while making footsteps
right there on the ground.
Footsteps on gravel
may sing a little song
that entertains you
as you move along.
So take a listen
to the gravel one day
as you walk onwards
your own special way.

Why Not Seek God!

Sometimes a moment
might seem a bit grand
and at the moment
you not understand.
Sometimes a minute
may seem as an hour
as but a moment
is there to empower.
Let Jesus help you
when moments are great
and He will help you
with that time and date.
Sometimes we falter
at showing we’re weak
simply because
we don’t want ones to peek.
We all get weary
as time moves ahead
so why not seek God
and not just sit in dread!

Sometimes It’s Choices

I’ve seen the torment
and found so to say
a better tomorrow
from thens yesterday.
Sometimes our viewing
needs back to front
leaving the minutes
of yesterdays grunt.
We’ve all seen minutes
of troubles ahead
as we’ve arrived at
what’s then done and said.
I’ve seen the torment
of not letting go
of all the problems
that times did bestow.
Sometimes it’s choices
that makes sad and gray,
because we don’t want to
let God guide the way.

Maybe That Smile

A man in a clown suit
may seem to smile,
yet underneath it
a frown may compile.
A person seen smiling
may not be so true.
They may not want to
show their pain to you.
A mornings glimmer
of someone you see
may be the minute
that’s given for free.
A man in a clown suit
or persons sweet smile
may be the thing to
help you all the while.
So why not act as
the clown in the suit
or maybe the person
with smiles as a loot.
Maybe that smile
that you falsely displayed
might turn to pages
of real that is made.

Take A Little Time

Seen is a fraction
of all that is there,
for all we’re viewing
is a bit to compare.
God gives the pictures
with texture and taste,
yet many miss them
as times go to waste.
Seen is a fraction
of moments we view,
yet we will often
look past thereunto.
God’s given paintings
of timeless landscapes,
yet we will often
look for different shapes.
Take a little time
to view and to see
all that God’s given
to you and to me.

Having is blissful
when it is coming from God,
otherwise it’s bad.

Raindrops by morning
make many flowers to bloom,
yet many will not.

Stories we’ve painted
as our lives move thereunto
may be colored in.

When we see people
we will sometimes just judge them,
rather than accept.

Look passed yesterday
and see what today offers.
It may surprise you.

Sometimes stood sheepish
you might find all the answers
as pride dissipates.

So many wonder
what the times are presenting
and miss what’s today.

Shallow is a pond
as feelings that many wade.
Some think they’re deeper.

A simple stones throw
will designate the distance
of broken windows.

Letting your guard down
doesn’t mean that you are weak.
It means you are strong.

Letters in sequence
make the stories to set sail
to journeys beyond.

Friends stood together
when they’re many miles apart
still make them stronger.

Sunshine is peeking
and getting my attention
as rain comes again.

Withering minutes
designate the moments time
to change its picture.

Glancing at summer
in this new found scenery
I find much to see.

Scenarios change
as time makes many motions.
The future’s to come.

Look at what you’ve found
as time has turned its pages.
Today’s a new book.

Harboring sadness
may prevent your happiness.
Let go of what was.

Walking down a path
you may see a certain sign
that says turn around.

Beyond your vision
is the glimmer of hopeful.
It just takes Jesus.

Sunshine awakes me
with its wonderful essence
that makes life to grow.

Don’t jump too rashly,
for you may have misconceived
what now you perceive.

Look Harder


Hello my friends

So what’s up in your part of the world these days? It’s still
raining off and on up here. A tad more on than off if ya get
my drift LOL!!! I hear it’s rather hot down Texas ways, yet
I miss it more than ever. I guess it could be that I am a born
and raised Texan. My mom told me the other day that my
sister asked her if she was ready to go to Maine again and mom
said sure. Yet it won’t be until next summer. I pray nothing
happens to prevent it again as it did this year. I miss all of my
family and friends. Wish I were rich and I would be there now.
I love it up here most days with the beauty and all, but I need
to see my friends and family. Oh well, an old musician friend
of mine is supposed to be coming up this ways August 13 and
he said he wants to jam with me again, so maybe he and I will
get together and do some music. Hehehe maybe even do a lil
video of us. Ya never know. David, I hope you make it dude!
Not much has changed in this little house of the Pearce’s. It’s
pretty much same old same old if ya know what I mean. The
temperatures have been very nice. Wish my health would let
me enjoy it more, but that’s life. Please don’t ask me what’s
wrong, because it would take me a day or two to tell ya LOL.
Alrighty then, it’s time to move onwards with Ye Greetings.
Judy had to go into work at 5 this morning due to expecting
a large group to come in this morning wanting to eat. I hope
she gets off a little earlier than she was scheduled due to it.
I wish I could still work. Who ever said that it’s great being
retired should be shot LOL. If my health would allow me,
I would be working now, that’s of course if I could even find
a Machine shop factory or anything for that matter that I
could do what I know how to do hehehe. Oh well, this is my
life. God allowed my health to get this way for a purpose.
Sometimes I think He allows the brakes to be added so as to
slow us down and change our perception. We many times
will perceive life as speeding over speed bumps, yet the fact
is that God has plans for us and sometimes He needs us to
slow down so we can do what we were meant to do. I was
meant to write and so I shall. The choices fall on what we
let ourselves to do with the moments. We can either just sit
and die away, or we can try to use our gifts the best that we
can. I’m lost in this world of Northeastern Maine, hut I am
doing the best that I can to deal with it. Judy and I find things
that we can do together. One thing is soon coming up hehehe
if it will ever stop raining long enough LOL and that is take
off on a photography cruise. I myself am looking forwards
to it, being it means getting out and away from this house
for a while :). Yep, God gives us many ways to enjoy life,
yet sometimes we need to look harder for the blessings.
With that said, I reckon it’s time for me to begin my little
search through things I’ve written to try and find a word or
phrase that will work well for today’s brand new poem, so
it’s off I go to that place of recollection that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I found a good title to use
for today’s poem. Now let’s see if I can write anything
good using it LOL. And away we go as Jackie Gleason
would say hehehe.

Look Harder

When in fact goodtimes
you cannot see
look through the sight
of your memory.
If in fact sunshine’s
hidden from view
take a little venture
to something new.
Maybe just mind wise,
but travel on
seeking a brighter
shade of the dawn.
When in fact fractions
of all you find
are but of sadness
from time to time
take on a memory
and let it give
peace that will help you
now just to live.
Yet do not live then
in memories,
for they can turn to
just a disease.
Learn to use wisely
all you remember
times in brushstroke
life’s burning ember.

I hope you enjoyed that. Only God knows how I am able to do
that hehehe. I never know what’s gonna come out of my head.
It seems I have thought this way all my life, for I’ve been writing
poetry for almost 40 years LOL. Sometimes we don’t even realize
our gifts until many years down the line. I just thought I had a
flare for rhyming LOL. I found out later in life that I was given
a gift that would not only help me, but could help others and I
am very thankful to God for this gift. I guess I need to be hushing
now and finding that old off switch on myself LOL, hut before
I do that I need to tell ya what I tell ya all the time 🙂 and that is
I wrote some more poems and yes of course I wrote some more
haiku also for all of my haiku lovers out there. Hehehe I actually
out did myself this time. I began writing as I always do and I went
a bit over my quota LOL. I did 23 instead of 22. I thought about
just deleting it or holding it back for next week hehehe, but I
decided to go ahead and send it LOL. No I wasn’t gonna delete
it :)!!! Just messing with ya hehehe. Ok so that about wraps it up.
Have a wonderful week and remember Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now where’s that off switch hiding this time?????????
Found it, once again behind my soda can LOL. See ya CLICK

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems
10 and 22 + 1 hehehehe

The Journey

The footsteps we’re making
are found in our view
after the journey
of here thereunto.
Sometimes the journey
may not seem so clear
and we may never
see how we got here.
The journey of footsteps
is one two and three
how that the pathway
made you and me.
God holds the vision
and knows what is best
how we’ll be better
after each given test.
Many times judgment
guides us each day
while on the journey
going each way.
We have the choices
of left unto right.
yet the best way
might not be in sight.
We can’t see further
beyond our own view
and so we don’t know
if it’s really good to do.
Passion and flavor
takes on our days stride,
yet we will make it
with Jesus inside.

A Dumdididy Day

The points of a minute
are seconds we see
sometimes just sounding
like a dumdididy.
We count the minutes
of hours each day
while hoping something
will go our way.
The points of a candle
with minutes to burn
gives us the minutes
of seconds to learn.
Many times day time
goes many ways
as all the minutes
seem as a maze.
Segments we’re finding
may be the force
leading us down a
minutes time course.
Learning from moments
of a dumdididy day
we can find Jesus
just leading the way.

See Life Anew

Raindrops falling
are blessings we need
as they each nourish
life giving seed.
Sunshine then showers
the seeds everywhere
giving the nourishment
none can compare.
Days that are raining
many find sad
while we remember
things that we had.
Raindrops falling
can also renew
the way that a moment
lives within you.
Take a little walk
in raindrops one day
and listen clearly
to what all they say.
As they run down
your face one by one
look for the blessings
all that are done.
See on the ground
how each is soaked in
and makes the patterns
again to begin.
God gives us raindrops
to drink in the view
so we will one day
see life anew.

Like A Turnstile

A session of morning
meets waking day
as it will gather
its minutes display.
During the nighttime
morning will smile
as it grows closer
like a turnstile.
In through the window
of nighttimes parade
morning brings visions
of turnstiles displayed.
We’ll see the glimmer
and then see the view
when in the morning
the day starts anew.
Seeming like portraits
painted and hung
morning will blossom
all it has brung.

Portions of Sunshine

Sipping on sunshine
tasty and free
I find I’m yearning
much more for me.
Sweet tasty sunshine
after the rain
gathered together
time and again.
I find I’m yearning
more to be seen
so to just glisten
on leaves of green.
Sipping on sunshine
tasty and sweet
I find I’m waiting
to taste and to eat.
Portions of sunshine
inside each cup
I wish to take it
and sip it up.

God in Mind

Hands all united

days of a moments
sad beating drum.
Hands held together
united with love
can make the moments

We need united
the heartbeats of time
so as to blossom
a better design.
Make hands united
with days come to be
and they will maybe
be better to see.
Make your uniting

This Simple Lamp

A simple little lamp
shines a simple little light
on through the daytime
and on through the night.
It’s simple glisten
makes it good to see
sights of all surrounding
here with you and me.
A simple little light switch
makes the lamp come on
when it’s the beginning
of day of brand new dawn.
For without the glimmer
of this lamp of history
I would just be stumbling
because I could not see.
So this simple lamp
I turn on every day
I now thank you truly
for your little lighting way.

Timeless To Show

The breeze of morning
wakes up the view
with the aroma
of mornings dew.
Sounds in the distance
fill up my mind
with all the pictures
that it can find.
The breeze so briskly
blows here to there
sometimes seeming
just like a prayer.
I’ll stand awaiting
for it each day
listening to what all
that it will say.
Words in the morning
breezes will blow
telling the stories
timeless to show.

Wanderings Cease

A wanderers ways
leaves sometimes no trail
headed to somewhere
without a sail.
A simple wanderer
may seem to find
sometimes a minute
connecting our mind.
I’ve been a wanderer
without a clue
headed to somewhere
anywhere new.
A wanderers ways
are patterns prevailed
painted as pictures
sometimes detailed.
Yet comes a time
for wanderings cease
so to find Jesus
and rest in peace.

Blooming In May

I saw a flower
little but grand
and caressed it
soft with my hand.
This tiny flower
seemed to be seen
as the belated
season of spring.
I stood while gazing
at this small flower
minute to minute
maybe an hour.
So many flavors
made up this view
here in this flower
timeless and true.
I thought I saw it
smile big and me
as I caressed it
oh so gently.
I seemed to hear it
saying that day
that it began surely
its blooming in May.

One time a hero
makes not a persons profile.
What about today?

Many will frolic
in troubles of another
and at your expense.

Don’t let your passion
become the guiding motion
that leads you thereto.

Gathered are the stones
that another time will throw.
Help out tomorrow.

The wisdom of many
gives the tools for ones to use,
yet we must use them.

A flawless skyline
is the painting of Lord God
with Holy brush strokes.

Scenes we admire
might not be so wonderful
as the ones we miss.

Heaven awaits us,
yet we must first love Jesus
so as to enter.

Hold your head up high
and don’t let problems guide you.
Work passed the problems.

Glimpsing at people
we will maybe only see
what they want to show.

Stories are lifestyles
as books of times are written.
What’s on your pages?

Morning shows shadows
that are echoes of nighttime,
yet we can now see.

Tempting a moment
might lead you to destruction.
Look clear the moment.

Hearts that are beating
may seem as just a pattern,
but they might be more.

Give someone a hand
when you see them with struggles.
You might make a friend.

A loser is pictured
as someone that many paint,
without all they have.

The leaves of the trees
will dance and sing in the breeze
yet many don’t care.

Let loose your worries
of the yesterdays troubles.
Today is avail.

Clinging to fragments
that your yesterday’s given
might just hold you back.

Knowledge is power,
yet used in the wrong motion
makes stumbling blocks.

Ancestry of many
makes not who you are today.
You can determine.

A windows curtain
sometimes hides all of the view,
so draw the curtain.

Look into your heart
and see what all you’ve hidden.
Lord God knows it all.
