Without Our Struggles


Hello my friends

I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving, for those of you that actually
celebrated it Thursday :). I know those of you in Canada celebrate it
in October and you in other countries, maybe not at all, but none the
less always be thankful. Life here at the Pearce’s household is steady
and holding, yet the electricity was knocked out last night due to high
winds and I was on the PC. For some reason my hard drive stopped
when the electricity went out and I went into a panic. I could still see
the power light lit on the PC and it worried me. I just shut it off, yet
when the electricity came back on, my PC booted up OK. I guess it
was having a hissy fit. My battery backup was working as it should.
My monitor stayed on when the electricity went out, so go figure LOL!
I’m just glad my PC is OK. Come to think of it, it may have sent it
to sleep mode! Hehehe I never thought of that LOL! OK, so it’s off
of that topic and onto yet another. As I write to you, I’m also doing
my farm harvest on Country Life, LOL. Talk about split thoughts:)!
I load the machines and come back here, I load the machines and come
back here LOL. Wish it would let me load more than three tomatoes
at a time. Hehehe I’m making ketchup :). None edible of course LOL!
Well, what else is going on in this world??? It’s supposed to snow
tonight, tomorrow, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We shall
see what it actually pulls off :). When I get paid, Judy and I have got
to run down to DOC’s oil and put a couple hundred dollars down on
heating oil, cause our oil tank is getting low. Don’t wanna run out,
that’s for sure. Ok, so what else is happening up this ways?????
Really and truly, I ain’t got a clue hehehe. I’m playing it by ear!
I had to load the confounded ketchup machines again it LOL. I’ve
only got 10 more crates of tomatoes to feed the blasted things hehe.
I should be through then, at least for a few hours hehehehe. Hey,
being retired and disabled, it leaves not much else to do LOL. At
least I ain’t gotta physically harvest and plant these things 🙂 and my
clothes stay clean :). Me thinks I may have a few too many farms at
FaceBook LOL. Oh well, it’s a time killer. What else is there to
do around this place hehehe???? Watch the clouds or clods as I
accidentally typed a minute ago hehehehe! Yeppers, this must be
the fast lane Hahahaha, yea right! Judy’s place of business has
gotten launched and seems to be doing very well. Yet Judy says that
she’ll be happy when they finally get the new diner built because
this restaurant is just not the same. I’m sure the rest of the crew
feels the same way. But Judy thanks God that she has a job and
the owner was so generous in making sure her and all the others
had a paycheck. Gotta feed the ketchup machines again LOL!
Ok, I’m back hehehe. I’m almost done, Whew!!!! Hehehehehehe,
talk about spreading your thoughts thin LOL. Time for another
topic hehe. Oh yea, Judy and me watched the Thanksgiving
parade Thursday morning and that was great. I fixed us a little
thanksgiving dinner hehehe. Judy would say I fixed a whole lot
of Thanksgiving dinner though. We both stuffed our faces.
It’s funny, hehe ya stuff your face and your belly gets full LOL.
Or in my case hehehehe large. OK, nothing actually stays with
me for more than a few minutes, but it tasted good hehehehehe.
God has so blessed Judy and I in our daily endeavors. At times
I feel God’s angels watching over us. His eyes are never far away,
yet so many think that when things go wrong, that God has left
them. On contraire! God allows what needs to happen in our
day to day lives, for without our struggles, we would have no
growth. He is there when He sees that you can honestly take no
more and then He gives a Hand. Sometimes it may seem as an
eternity has passed, but our perception of time is not the best
when problems are amidst. Have faith that God will calm the
waters when they’ve become too rough to handle or either He
will give you more strength to endure the moment. One way or
another, He will help you through the moment. I guess I need to
be taking my little venture back through all that I’ve written to see
if I can find a good word or phrase that I can use for the title for
today’s brand new poem. So, it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection, to that place I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I believe I may have stumbled upon a good title. Now let’s see if
I can write a decent poem using it LOL. And away we go!!!!
Sounded like Jackie Gleason huh hehehe LOL!!!

Without Our Struggles

Without our struggles
where would we be?
Found without lessons
from our history.
Without the problems
what would we learn?
Found without minutes
of lessons to earn.
Without our reflection
what would we find?
Nothing to help us
make up our mind.
Without our struggles
what would we do?
No lessons nowhere
to guide me and you.
Without our yesterday
what would we know?
Nothing to guide us
where all we go.

I sure hope that made sense to ya. I have to keep reminding
myself that being human means we must deal with life, yet God
will not allow more than we can take. I know, you may think
that you cannot take anymore at times, yet if you look back on
your life, you will see times that you dealt with so much more
and still survived. God’s angels are never far away. Time is
something that we only see by the second, yet God has a far
greater perception of what we may call the puzzle of life. Yep,
I get antsy more often than ya know for time to move along :).
Hehehehe I never liked to have to wait, but sometimes, I just
ain’t got no choice LOL. Well, I reckon it’s about time for me
to begin my search for that old off switch, but before I do that
I guess I should tell ya what I tell ya every week and that is, I
wrote some more poems and haikus. Another 10 poems and 22
haiku, yet this time I wrote 5 Christmas poems, being Christmas
is right around the corner hehehe. I hope and pray that ya like
a few of the poems as well as the haiku. I have had many ask me
what haiku is and did I make up the name LOL. This is haiku
by definition. It’s an epigrammatic Japanese verse form of three
short lines with 5 syllables first line, 7 syllables second line and
5 syllables in the last and for those of you asking me now, what
in Heavens name is epigrammatic hehe? Epigrammatic means
Terse and witty and like a maxim. So there ya go!!! Now you’ve
learned something new today :). I Hope hehe!!! Ok it’s time to
be saying goodbye, but before I do, I want to wish you a most
wonderful week. Remember Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now where’s that dad burn off switch hiding at this time?????
Hehehe I can hear ya snoring behind my ears LOL. Gotcha!
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. Oh yea, me almost forgot LOL. I wrote 4 Yoville haiku
that I am also sharing. Hehehe I actually wrote all of them along
with all of the poems and other haiku yesterday (Saturday) 🙂 hehe.

Now on with the poems
10 and 22 +4 🙂 hehehehe

Then and Before

While I was pointing
at what I saw
there was a moment
filled with much awe.
Time seemed to echo
what I remember
of a great snow filled
time of December.
All of the seconds
of here and now
seemed to just vanish
some place somehow.
As I was pointing
at that some place,
I could remember
a smile on my face.
I time of Decembers
wonderful hue
seemed to encompass
nows every view.
Now I remember
then and before
and how that Christmas
meant so much more.

Wonderful Magical Times

Places with feelings
that times recall
create the rhythms
of time standing tall.
Sceneries threshold
from what we do
carries memories
of me and you.
Places remembered
from day to day
fill us with feelings
wonderful way.
Feelings of joyful
we wish repeat,
yet they’re remembered
times waiting seat.
Many recollections
of certain scenes
seems to envelop
what it all means.
Christmas of decades
lays on our minds
things of those wonderful
magical times.
Places with feelings
that we recall
seems to be living
and standing tall.

For By and By

A page is turned
and day is done
as another
is then begun.
A time’s completed
laid at rest
when it’s done
its very best.
A page is turned
and written down
as another
is coming around.
Timelessly minutes
tick as before
while pages turn
and seconds soar.
A time’s finished
with lock and key
left with only
a memory.
A page is turned
for others to find
a hopefully better
greater design.
The minutes move
with you and I
leaving us lessons
for by and by.

Storms Are Needed

When in a storm
the minutes might seem
as a unfortunate
nightmarish dream.
When times of trouble
come unto you,
you might not see clear
goodness come true.
It takes a storm
sometimes day to day
to show us goodness
come from the gray.
When in a storm
you might only see
what that has happened
a mere slight degree.
Storms are needed
to change our mind
and make goodness
better to find.

The Greatest Today

Rekindled spirits
of love deep within
can make a moment
of time to begin.
Looking with trueness
from love deep inside
rekindles moments
and hope to abide.
Rekindled spirits
of times December
helps us find Jesus
and to remember.
Songs that were sung
in times long ago
bring us to Christmas
right now that we know.
Rekindled heartbeats
burn very bright
when they’re remembered
with Christmas delight.
So let’s rekindle
the times faraway
and make this Christmas
the greatest today.

Long and Awaited

Long and awaited
sort of to see
these are the moments
sort of to be.
So many wishes
awaited upon
so many people
dusk unto dawn.
Dreaming of minutes
night has to give
long and awaited
wishes to live.
So many dreamers,
so many times
are sometimes wishing
better designs.
Long and awaited
wishing to see
yet they aren’t praying
minutes degree.
So if you’re waiting
dusk unto dawn
say a little prayer
and then move along.
Long and awaited
take on your stride
as you continue
with Jesus inside.

Do You Seek Jesus?

Look deep inside
and see what you find.
Do you see Jesus
or another design?
Look to you feelings
and all that you choose.
Do you seek blessings
or just better shoes?
Look at your image
and daily detail.
Do you see Jesus
or just you set sail?
Look at your rhythms
and see how you beat.
Do you seek goodness
or just act discrete?
Look deep inside
and see what you know.
Do you seek Jesus
in places you go?

December Shadows

December shadows
of times I’ve seen
seem to be forming
in midst of a dream.
Sequential seconds
of times long ago
seem to be living
in all that I know.
December shadows
of realistic views
seem to be living
in yesterdays news.
All of the portholes
that my visions see
carry the minutes
of magic with me.
So many blessings
in all that I had
I can remember
with my mom and dad.
Glancing inside me
I see now real clear
that I remember
that time I endear.
Heavens great minutes
in Earthly delight
I can remember
of Christmas Eve night.

Winters Percussions

Winter is here now
singing its song
daylight to also
dusk unto dawn.
I can see pictures
yet not in sight
of that of snowflakes
found day and night.
Winter is here now
speaking real clear
with all its wording
this time of year.
Flavored percussions
beating in tune
saying the Christmas
will be here soon.
Winter is speaking
all that it knows
such as its memoirs
of winter snows.
Time is surrounding
winters delight
as it brings Christmas
soon into sight.
Songs will be playing
as winter sings
and I’ll be happy
with what it brings.
Winters percussions
beating its name
will be remembered
time and again.

Many A Person

Links to another
are found deep inside
as many candles
of time far and wide.
Maybe another
might not seem the same,
yet they may carry
inside the same name.
Links will get rusty
and need a little care
and then it’s needed
for many and prayer.
Links to another
might not seem grand,
yet they may be just
a time soon at hand.
Many a person
in many a way
might be what’s needed
for you now today.
Links to another
might not seem clear,
but they are needed
for then unto here.

for Nov 28, 2009

Closed on the inside
leaves no hope for the outside.
Leave some room for change.

Countless persuasions
lead to pitfalls of journeys
unless they’re thought out.

A candle in the wind
will flicker most profusely
before it’s blown out.

Winners and losers
can be found on the same page,
yet it’s how you view.

We are the players
in games we attempt to live
with our mere struggles.

Hands in the pocket
only lead to bitterness
if not filled with love.

Letters from the heart
ones might simply just misread
and not understand.

Sometimes might display
as the minutes you regret,
so don’t be surprised.

Casualties format
makes its appearance in time
when love does not live.

Birds fly gracefully
with feathered wings extended
just as an angel.

Places we’ve ventured
will one day be reoccurred
inside of our dreams.

Do not just frolic
in the torment of others.
Lend a helping hand.

Flowers seen blooming
in the winters bitter bite
might not be flowers.

The strength in others
might not be formidable.
It may be a lie.

Hauling a moment
to another point and time
might cause destruction.

Landing on the ground
is not always the greatest
when it is quicksand.

Time is a flavor
that many taste differently.
Combine your tastebuds.

Unique’s another
with each and every detail.
We are perfection.

In the public view
is a glass heart that displays.
Truth shows none the less.

Hard times are teachers
as the timeframes move ahead
with all that we’ve learned.

Portions of beauty
are the sights that many see
when looking above.

Hindsighted people
leave the lessons found ahead
as just mistaken.

YoVille Haiku

Loads of equations
are counted as the minutes
that we wish to be.

Want to makes sorrow
when want to’s unrealistic.
Don’t let greed to guide.

Moments are teachers
except when they are ignored
and not put to use.

Heartaches emotions
are many times found burning
even when hidden.

Possibilities of Hope


Hello my friends

How’s it going in your neck of the woods? It’s been rather nice
up this ways considering what it is normally at this time of year :).
Yet, it’s seeming according to my PC weather programs, by next
weekend we should be getting into the more normal weather for
up here, which is snow. It could change by then, but that could
also mean it could begin earlier LOL. None the less, I am sure
that the seasonal snows will begin very soon. We’ve already had
a few snows, but none that I would actually call our seasonal type
snows LOL. It’s rather cool right now at 36 F degrees, but that’s
warm compared to what it will be as winter sets in LOL. Well I
guess I shall get off of the weather forecast and onto another topic.
Judy is back to cooking now at work at the Elm Tree Restaurant,
which they are calling it hehehe, because they say there can only
be ONE Elm Tree Diner and it will be rebuilt next year sometime.
So for the time, the temporary place of business will keep Judy
cooking until the new diner is built. Life has been interesting up
here with all that has come into our paths and all that I’ve seen.
I am growing to love this place, yet I do have a slight bicker 🙂
about the cccccccccold weather. Love the snow! Hate the cold!
The biggest complaint I have up here is that I am so far away
from my family and friends. I miss them all so very much. It
seems I have turned into a loner up here being I don’t seem to
fit into anybody’s world as a Texan that I am. People tend to
steer clear of me for some reason. Oh well, I will just keep on
with my writing and photography as well as my music, not to
mention watching movies with Judy and playing all of our many
games together on the PC. It’s amazing how God was able to
find somebody for me that enjoyed all of the same things and
put us together even with us being well over 2000 miles apart
at the time with me in Texas and her in Maine, but He did it :).
My dad kept telling me that there was somebody out there for
me, but I needed to let God find them for me. So I ceased my
ongoing search that I had been on and lo and behold I found
Judy. I just wish my dad would of told me that I might have to
go 2000 miles away to find that special one LOL. I guess to
find perfection for needs, one must allow the gaps of time and
distance to become null and void. Well, here I am where I
surely never thought I would be, being I had lived in Texas all
of my life, born and raised. When you give your life to Jesus,
there is no end to the possibilities of hope. I found that my past
had given me the tools to provide a good life, maybe not with
money, but with the lessons I’ve learned and the gift of poetry
that God has given me. Judy loves it when I read my poems
and haikus to her. She has quit wondering how it is that I can
pour out so many poems and haikus each week in a matter of
minutes. She said she just considers it as my gift. We each
have gifts, yet often we are not aware of them and we may even
be using them every day without our knowledge. Yet many will
be seen tossing their gifts away, because of wanting another
and not seeing the full potential in their very own gift. Don’t let
your ego and pride to make you think less of your gift. Each
gift from God is priceless. No money in the world can buy it.
Look into your heart and see what you are feeling. You may
find that helping others in some way might be your gift. Have
faith, God has not forgotten you. Now I guess it’s about time
for me to be venturing back through all I’ve written to see if
I can find a good word or phrase that I can use for the title
for today’s brand new poem in that place of my recollection,
which I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. So it’s away I go!
Hey, I think I stumbled onto a good title while I was writing
and I think I will use that LOL. It seems to be a good one.
Here goes nothing. Hope ya like it :).

Possibilities of Hope

Too many searches
in wanna style phase
leads oh so many
down miserable days.
There are possibilities
found in the frame
gathered together
in Jesus Christ Name.
Possibilities of hope
make venturous feats
found with conclusions
without repeats.
God gives the minutes
needed to find
all the possibilities
within our mind.
We need remember
possibilities of hope
are in His mention
and within His scope.

Ok, so how was it? Hehehe I hope it made sense to ya at least a
little bit hehehe. I haven’t much else to tell ya except the usual 🙂
and that is, I wrote some more poems and haikus this week hehe
Ok, I actually wrote one poem Friday and all the rest, – Saturday
morning LOL. I wrote 3 brand new Christmas poems. The closer
to Christmas, the more Christmas poems I may be writing hehehe.
I wrote yet another 10 poems and 22 haiku to go with the 4 haiku
that I wrote and shared in my little YoVille messages this week :).
If you would ever like to read any of my past Christmas poems, then
take a visit to my friend Ben Geurts Old Fashioned Christmas site.
He has many years of my poems, but the grandest thing he has on
that fabulous site is all of his wonderful artwork and drawing art
screensavers. I hope you will make a visit to his site one day soon.
His link is at the end of the journal with all the others. You’ll most
surely be blessed! Ok with that said, I need to be searching for
that dab burn off switch so I can cease my writing for today, but
before I do that I must wish you a most wonderful week as well
as a HAPPY THANKSGIVING. Remember, Jesus loves you and
we do too. Now where’s that off switch hiding at this time?????
Hehehe there it is. I wondered why there was a lump under my
keyboard LOL. Gotcha hehehe. See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems.
10 and 22 + 4 🙂

Heavens Delight

Raindrops of Heaven
with rhythm and sound
create many blessings
that fall on the ground.
Seeming as footsteps
right there in my view
raindrops of Heaven
help create brand new.
Nourishing waters
that Heaven displays
seems to make format
for wonderful days.
Raindrops of Heaven
make their presence found
as the clouds open
and pour on the ground.
Days will be followed
with lesser in sight
when the rain ceases
it Heavens delight.

To Help Life Unfold

Holding a candle
burning quite bright
could be the essence
to guide you at night.
Yet held too closely
might give a burn
as the mere candle
makes you to learn.
Getting to caught up
in what we see
might become burdens
a slight degree.
Holding a candle
on life day to day
needs to be surely
held the right way.
Things that you’re seeing
from candle light view
might be a vision
of false not true.
So make the candle
of which you hold
that of Lord Jesus
to help life unfold.

In Him Do Impart

Many are seeing
what that we do
when we are walking
a day out of skew.
So make your journeys
of days found ahead
doing what truly
is what that you said.
If you say one thing
and do another
someone will surely
one day discover.
You cannot hide
a night on the town
when surely Jesus
is always around.
Many are seeing,
yet not truly knowing
where that it is
that you’re daily going.
Yet Jesus Christ
can see in your heart
and see if you truly
in Him do impart.

Outshines Them All

Years in a sequence
bring into view
seasonal settings
to surely come true.
So many blessings
found year to year
are seasons settings
found with much cheer.
Years in a sequence
find day to day
ways to encompass
every display.
Paintings of rhythms
seasonal times
seem to in some way
make great designs.
Yet it is Christmas
that outshines them all
even the settings
of colors in fall.

Wisdom’s Gathered

Wisdom is flourished
when it is used
and not just daily
found as abused.
Wisdom is gathered
through thick and then
when we are ending
or then to begin.
Life’s dusty fragments
brings into view
so many lessons
to learn as anew.
Wisdom is portioned
how you perceive
and it is gathered
in how you believe.
So often wisdom
is just but a dream
found as a nightmare
the way things seem.
Yet wisdom’s gathered
in many details,
but it’s our motion
that fills up the sails.

Wonderful Days

I can hear clearly
the seasonal songs
playing as moments
Christmastimes dawns.
Portraits in snow globes
shaken around
emulate settings
of Santa in town.
Familiar feelings
come into view
when every Christmas
does surely come true.
I smell aromas
of scented cuisines
seeming to enhance
what Christmastime means.
Sweet music playing
what surely is found
as that of Christmastime
coming to town.
All of our memories
blossom and bloom
as Christmas blessings
come into tune.
Sequenced by flavors
and also by sight,
Christmas is coming
with seasonal flight.
Heard as the echoes
that timeless portrays
Christmas enhances
the wonderful days.

leaving the minutes

In a little while

In a little while
the sounds we hear
may be as visions
that we so endear.
In a little while
the times displayed
may be the minutes
as found Heaven made.
In a little while
we may surely find
so many blessings

Cease The Barrels

Found in a barrel
of monkeys of time
there is much turmoil
found in design.
A simple barrel
with monkeys inside
simulates many
of time far and wide.
So much confusion
found in days sails
emulates barrels
with monkeys with tails.
Turbulent streaming
of unsorted views
simulates barrels
of all sordid news.
Found in a barrel
can also be seen
ones wanting nightmares
to be as a dream,
but it takes choices
to leap from within
and cease the barrels

In But A Moment

In but a moment
the minutes set sail
bringing in Christmas
in every detail.
So many settings
of twinkling lights
make very joyful
all of the nights.
Home fires burning
with family and friends
paints very clearly
what never should end.
In a mere moment
Christmas is seen
found as a blessing
thought as a dream.
Smoke stacks billow
from fires below
as they’re awaiting
Christmas white snow.
In but a moment
the minutes will shine
and it will surely
be Christmastime.

Learn Its Design

In through yesterday
comes in today
bringing the lessons
learned another day.
Memories rationed
as blades of grass
bringing the lessons
come from the past.
Throughout minutes
moments survive
with all the lessons
that keep us alive,
but it takes using
the things you’ve learned
through the yesterdays
times discerned.
If you’re repeating
a similar time
it means you didn’t then
learn its design.

Seconds are counted
when anger is a amidst
till the explosion.

Wise is the thinker
that rethinks what’s defining
the answers ahead.

Many will follow
when you hold you head up high,
yet don’t expect them.

Learning is defined
as wisdom from the problems
and how to react.

Iffy circumstance
brings certain indecision
which leads ones to doubt.

Letters to loved ones
may get lost in the pages
of our memories.

Cold winter mornings
bring us scenes full of wonder
awakened by time.

Fall has gone away
and left in place a journey
that leads to winter.

Many beloved
find their hearts are torn into
by their loved ones.

Ones that are hurried
with their own style directions
may fall into holes.

Time is turbulent
when our troubles become guides
blindly leading us.

With every heartbreak
is a chance for tomorrow
to be much better.

Left to our choices
so many will just fall prey
to their emotions.

Little is alot
where piece of mind is gathered.
Little can grow large.

Finding solitude
is a long winding journey
inside of oneself.

Hearing a whisper
leaves you opened for loudness
which can deafen you.

Clouds of perception
are the billows of forethought
awaiting a rain.

Timidness conquers
the chances for much greater
caused by so much fear.

Christmas scenery
brings alive our childhood thoughts
which it enlarges.

A tree with lighting
glittering within the night
brings Christmas alive.

A flame in the wind
will most surely be blown out
if it’s not cared for.

Hard times are teachers
that give us the end results
much later in life.

Shine Brighter


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.

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.

Many Times


Hello my friends

So, how are you today? I’m just now recovering from a nasty
recoil from eating veggies at a Chinese restaurant. I should know
better than to eat veggies LOL, being with my intestinal problems
and all hehehe or lack there of LOL. My stomach also did not let
me live it down until this morning. I had Chinese food Friday for
Judy’s birthday. I told Judy the next time we go to eat Chinese,
I’m having shrimp hehehe. I know that won’t hurt me :). Well,
now that I am feeling more normal and not pooping green hehehe,
Judy and I are heading down to Ellsworth Maine so me and Steve
can jam and make some more music videos. We were supposed to
go there Saturday, but I was way too sick. I stayed in bed with
a heating pad to help my intestines and stomach to ease up a tad.
It worked. So, now it’s off of my gross ailments LOL and onto
yet another topic. I’m hoping that Steve and I can get some good
recordings. We’re bringing our Sony DVD cam and Canon camera
video recorder to get as much as possible. Music has been a big
part of my life since I was just a tike. I began playing the bongos
when I was 7 and moved on from there to a full drums set, yet
now days due to my health issues, my body cannot handle the
movement needed for a drum set, so 🙂 I play my conga drums.
I have fun playing the conga drums hehe being I can play them
in the living room without vibrating everything in the house as
a drum set would do for sure LOL. Judy will be maybe going
back to her old work schedule beginning this week, yet she is
off today and Monday. She might not be cooking yet hehehehe.
They haven’t got the stoves hooked up yet, but hopefully they
will be Tuesday and time will tell of how other things get hooked
up and ready to go. I know Judy is ready to be doing what she
is used to doing. That cleaning and painting is wearing on her.
If they would of let me hehehe, I would of come to help, but
nobody wants a health risk on their hands I guess. Plus I tend
to spend too much time in the rest room to be able to ever get
anything done. That’s life, and so I continue my life as a house
hubby and do as I do taking care of my Judy. The weather up
this way has been pretty nice. Not really all that cold, or at
least not for up here LOL. My mom in Texas would say brrr
that’s too cold. Yeppers winter is knocking on our door with
a whap whap whap. I suspect we will be seeing the first true
winters snowing soon enough hehehe. I myself cannot wait
being I do love snow and to watch it floating from the sky is
almost like a fairytale story come true. It’s like magic as it
floats to the ground and builds a landscape of fluffy white :)!!
I have written 3 more Christmas poems this week to go along
with all that I’ve written in past. They are all uploaded to my
good friend Ben Geurts Old Fashioned Christmas site. If you
are wanting to get in the spirit of the season, then most surely
take a visit to my friend in Holland’s site. Ben has many great
works of art there. He has a ton of art work that he has done
as well as some by his children and many others. Hehehehehe
I’m sounding like a commercial ain’t I LOL!!! Sorry :). Well as
you can tell, the blessings still happen as time moves along.
Surely we will have problems due to our humanity, but God is
there to help us through them. God has been good to us as He
has watched over us and made sure we had what we needed.
Many times what we need is not what we’re wanting. Some of
our choices make what needs that are met to become blurry.
Open your eyes to the blessings that God sends you every day.
You might be surprised. Hey, you will be surprised!!! I guess
I have rattled long enough 🙂 and it’s time for me to begin my
little venture back through all that I have written to that place
of recollection so 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 that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I do believe
I may have found a good title. Now let’s see if I can write a
good poem using it. LOL here goes. Bear with me!!!

Many Times

Seen are the settings
that are in view
found misconceiving
all that is true.
Some certain seconds
many times show
what that we really
truly don’t know.
Some recollections
may not be wise,
for they’re envisioned
with awkward eyes.
Many times settings
that we perceive
might be the blessings
we need believe.
Moments of many
found in our view
may be beginnings
of something new.
Times we are needing
that God has sent
come from the moments
of timeless content.

I hope that came out making a little bit of sense to ya LOL. I’ll
many times write something and not really perceive what I have
written until I read it at a later date. Like I wrote all the poems
and haiku for this week, Friday night in 2 and a half hours LOL.
I never have a clue to what is going to come out of my thoughts.
I just spend the week loading all that I perceive into my memory
and unleash it in one night. Yet often I will wait and do my haiku
the next day if I am too exhausted hehehe. The haiku only takes
me a few minutes LOL. Don’t ask me how I am able to do that.
Ask God. He’s The One Who gave me this gift. I’ve many times
sat back in wonder of how I was able to put all of my thoughts
down so quickly, but have grown to accept my gift and just use
it to the best of my abilities. Sort of like this journal. Judy still
is amazed how I can find so much to write about in just a matter
of minutes :). I am too LOL!!! Well, I hope and pray that I have
once again entertained you with my thought through rambling,
poetry and haiku. I guess it’s about time to be seeking that old
off switch, but before I do that I guess I should tell ya a bit
more than I wrote some Christmas poems hehehe. I wrote 10
more poems and 22 haiku as well as 6 YoVille haiku which will
be also published at the bottom of the list hehehe. Enjoy. Ok,
so now it’s time for me to be wishing you a wonderful week.
Rememeber, Jesus loves you and we do too. Now where’s
that off switch hiding at hehehe. It always tries to evade me :).
Ah hah,,,,,found you little bugger LOL. Hiding behind my soda
can won’t save ya. You hid there a week or so ago and I found
you. Hehehe so see ya, CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. Also thank you to all that sent Judy a birthday card.
It meant the world to me as well as her :)!!

Now on with the poems
10 and 22 + 6


Many will follow
where others go
in much confusion
of times to and fro.
Many will stumble
and try to hide
all of their troubles
that times coincide.
Many will echo
all that they hear,
yet not with passion
found so sincere.
Many are portions
of show and tell
as they hide fractions
not very well.
Many find blessings
when they unite
and do what truly
is what that’s right.

Poor Sighted Vision

Poor sighted people
in poor sighted ways
might not see clearly
what that displays.
Sometimes our vision’s
clouded by fear
and all we see then
is what we hear.
Long winded people
in poor sighted views
may be the ones that
cloud up the news.
Many envision
in a poor sight design
things of a moment
not very fine.
Yet it’s those people
that predestine scenes
that make so many
with times of demeans.
Poor sighted vision
with only one view
may not see clearly
what’s false or true.

Listen To His Voice

Listen to the moments
God speaks so clear
and pay attention
to what you hear.
Listen to your heartbeat
in its own rhythm
beating out the minutes
that God has given.
Let not your moments
to find only hate,
for it’s our choices
that make our trait.
Follow your heart
with Jesus inside
and you will find then
how He will guide.
Listen to His Voice
within your heartbeat
and let Him help you
to get on your feet.

Choices Are Needed

Lingering essence

of something new.
Lasting impressions
pave in a smile

Cornerstone footprints

Lingering breathing

found in believing
in Heaven and Hell.
Choices are needed

Truly The Gain

God paints the pictures
as days go by
while many watch on
wondering why.
Sometimes the pictures
may not look good
from our own stand point
of which we’re stood.
God knows the timeframes
pictured details
are what that’s needed
for what that ails
and also people
each daily in stride,
God paints the pictures
to help with the ride.
Some find the scenery
scented with pain,
yet God can see what’s
truly the gain.

given as blessings
from Gods Own Son.

In The Future

Just when a problem
seems out of hand,
God will send someone
to help you stand.
Just when a fraction
seems it can’t win,
God will send someone
to help begin.
Yet it takes moments
time for to pray
to allow blessings
in your day to day.
So when a problem
seems it’s too much,
let Jesus help you
to find a good crutch.
It might be problems
in some sort of style
that in the future
will help you to smile.

Christmas of Glass

In a Christmas globe

pictures are displayed
with snow on the ground.
Within a little globe
of Christmas detail

In a Christmas globe

there might be moments
filled with some tears.
Memories painted
in times Christmas scenes
might show the magic

In a Christmas globe

Today’s but a moment

time in a bottle

None Can Compete

Yuletide carols
of timeless array
many will sing soon
for Christmas day.
All of the blessings
that are in store
we will each sing of
that I adore.
Also of Santa
and reindeer that fly
we will be singing
in our by and by.
Yuletide carols
on the radio
will be playing
what I love so.
Songs of Lord Jesus
God’s Only Son
Yuletide carols
will then be sung.
All of the moments

will come Christmastime

Letters are written
without thinking of outcome
and they cause much pain.

Sometimes a sentence
in today’s minutes ahead
might be what ones need.

Hearts in a storm cloud
may see only turbulence,
and not the rainbow.

Jumping as a frog
from here unto there around
might find you trouble.

Arrogance destroys
what lessons that can be learned
until you grow up.

Seasonal fractions
of the wintertime’s echoes
leave signs of Christmas.

A frolicking dog
in the puddles of a time
show joy in moments.

Heightening true love
can be done with just minutes
painted with passion.

The rhythm of time
makes a drum roll in today
as yesterday leaves.

Clouds may overcome,
but the sun will surely shine
as clouds blow away.

A smile from someone
might be all that is needed
to better the day.

Heaven is waiting
as the minutes tick away
with blessings to find.

Let not your passion
to rival your commonsense.
Let God be your guide.

Pictures might display,
but they may be just moments
of untrue designs.

The stand of many
can affect tomorrows time,
so stand up for God.

Little is right now,
for it is soon to be gone,
bringing tomorrow.

Sandcastles may fall,
but their memories will live
in the minds of you.

Pleasure is pointless
if no care has been taken
of how it will turn.

Let now to harvest
your lessons from yesterday’s
troublesome minutes.

Anger in hurry
makes you as a hand grenade
with the pin pulled out.

Words that are spoken
many might misunderstand
and take them to heart.

Await tomorrow
with the dreams of much better
than that of today.

The Destruction


Hello my friends

How was your Halloween? We just stayed inside and watched
a few of our comedy videos and Transformer cartoons LOL. It
was windy as heck last night. I feel sorry for any kid that got out
in that to try and trick or treat. They would’ve become a flying kite
without strings. I had to go and turn our chairs so they wouldn’t
end up in the next county hehehe. I kept checking though. I mean
the wind was literally rocking our trailer house. I thought we were
going to have a Wizard of Oz repeat up here in Maine LOL. Where
we are, we have nothing but an open field in front of us which acts
as a doorway to the wind. Oh well, it seems we’ve not moved from
where we were yesterday :). We’re still in Nowhere Ville LOL :).
I did buy some lollipops and left them on the table beside the front
door just in case we had some desperados that made the venture.
Yet we only have three neighbors and I’m guessing they stayed inside
as well LOL. I could barely open our screen door due to the wind
blowing it closed hehehehe and if I did not hang onto it when I did
finally get it open I better of had a good tight grip on it or the wind
would catch it and it would become nothing but a memory hehehe.
Last week was rainy, but we did have a few days of sunshine off
and on hehe. I see according to my PC weather station that this
week will be slowly drifting back down to the cold as normal and
what we’re seeing now will be gone. Last night it got up to 65 or
thereabouts. Hehehe it almost feels like Texas again. The weather
keeps bouncing around like it’s on a pogo stick. I wish it would
just settle somewhere so my old body can have a chance to sort of
get used to the weather LOL. Judy and I are both anxiously waiting
for the first real true snows to come and stay because it seems so
magical. Yet the beauty does wear off around February March
and April as well as sometimes May LOL. I find myself searching
the skies for snow clouds often hehehe :). Yeppers, I am a kid at
heart and still love to play in the snow. I guess it could have to do
with my being a born and raised Texan and not seen much snow :).
LOL, I’m like a kid in a candy store hehe. Not much new has gone
on in the Pearce’s household. Judy and the crew of the Elm Tree
Diner are still doing preparations to get the temporary diner ready
to open, yet they keep running into obstacles that slow them down.
Hopefully all will be done soon and Judy can get back to doing what
she was hired to do hehehe and that is cook, but I think she’s gonna
miss having weekends off and being sent home or only working just
a half a day or so due to running out of things to do or anything that
can be done that day while preparing the temporary diner hehehe.
That’s life in the fast lane :). My world here in this house never seems
to change much. I clean house, do laundry, cook and wash dishes
as a regular scheduled program LOL. Yet Judy does once in a while
give me a break and do the dinner or laundry and that’s nice :).
Hehehehe mom said, “now you know how I felt”! Yeppers, I sure
do mom LOL. I’ve gone from CNC programmer/operator/machinist
to housewife/husband. I figure I might as well dress the part LOL.
Here’s some news for ya. Friday November 6th is Judy’s birthday
and to keep from telling you her age I will just tell ya hehehehehehe
she will then be the same age as me LOL. Figure it out! I told her
I don’t know how I’m gonna manage to get her anything for her
birthday being we live a slight further from Wal*Mart than we lived
when we were in Texas. I could usually start walking and hitch
a ride. One year a guy picked me up as I was just heading out and
he took me to Wal*Mart and waited as I went in and got Judy a
cake and some flowers and he took me back home, but fat chance
of that happening way the heck out here LOL. Then we only lived
about a mile from Wal*Mart. Now we live 8 miles out in the middle
of nowhere LOL. I’ll figure out something. God has always given
me ways to deal with each issue. I am sure He won’t let me down
this time either. Many times we will get caught up in what all we’re
wanting to do and forget that God may have better plans for you
that you are not aware of. God’s plans are beyond our scope of
vision. Often we will only see the destruction. Our eyes cannot see
what good that is in the makings. Have a little faith that God can
and will make good come from the bad. He’s worked many miracles
with Judy and I as you have read about often. Find time to thank
God for what He has helped you with already and then thank Him
for what He will do. Peace will then abound. I reckon it’s that
time once again for me to begin my search through all the words
I’ve written and see if I can find a word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s poem. So it’s away to that place of my own
recollection. That place that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE!
While stumbling through all the rambling I’ve done, I think I’ve
found a good title. Now let’s see what I can do with it if in fact
anything LOL………Here goes!!!!

The Destruction

Scenic misfortune
might be the view
when the destruction
happens to you.
You may not see
what surely is done
when in fact God has
sent His Own Son.
Blessings from troubles
of our day to day
may be the portholes,
God sent our way.
Lessons will follow
from the destruction
that are the blessings
Godly instruction.
So when you’re troubled
with so many times
take time to look for
wonderful signs.

Yeppers, we’ve had our share of problems, but God has pulled us
through. I hope my rambling did not bore ya LOL. Also I hope that
my poem made you stop and think. To my lil friend Jimmy in Oregon,
Hang in there dude. Maybe you’ll get some snow this year hehehehe.
When ours gets overwhelming as it does often, I will attempt to pack
some up and UPS it to you LOL. I guess I need to begin my search
for that old off switch so I can finish this and get started on figuring
out what to fix Judy and I for dinner as well as getting the laundry
started. A housewife’s/husband’s work is never done hehehehehehehe.
Before I search for that bloody off switch, I reckon I need to tell ya
what I tell ya every week and that is I wrote some more poems and
yes some more haikus. I hope you like a few of em. I wrote three
wintry Christmas style poems also. I did not write as much YoVille
haiku as I have previously. I only wrote 4 this time LOL. Hey, even
I will take a break from writing ever so often hehehe. Anyways, I’ve
got 10 poems and 22 haiku plus the 4 YoVille messages for you to
read and that ought to keep ya busy :). OK, now it’s time for me to
wish you a most wonderful week. Remember, Jesus loves you and
we do too. Now where’s that dad burn off switch hiding at this week?
I believe I see it hiding behind my aspirin bottle LOL. See ya hehehe,
CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. Hehehe send Judy a birthday card if you can 🙂
sometime between now and November 6th hehehehehe.
That would not only make her happy, but me as well!!
I love that gal with all my heart…….Many hugs to you.

Now on with the poems
10 and 22 + 4

Subsequent Seconds

Windows of passion
have opened today
showing the beauty
within its own way.
Days full of colors
painted so true
sometimes with passion
of a similar hue
such as the colors
of oh so much more
in through the windows
which my eyes explore.
Windows have opened
and let in the sight
coming in daily
as minutes unite.
Seasonal moments
are coming around
as I admire
each sight, smell and sound.
Subsequent seconds
insert their own view
of all the blessings
God gives me and you.

What He’s Bought

Little or nothing
greater or not,
I think that homemade
is better than bought.
Things we’ve created
with our minutes time
I think are better
than dollar or dime.
So often money
is all many see
when in fact price tags
don’t always agree.
Many will spend on
and not look inside
to see what Lord Jesus
has each day applied.
Little or nothing
greater or not,
I say that money
can’t buy what He’s bought.

White Snows Array

Mirrors of feelings
are certain to show
how I am missing
that white Christmas snow.
I’m just awaiting here
daily in stride
for what the season
can no longer hide.
White snow to billow
in seasonal stance
seems to in some way
put me in a trance.
Yet now I’m waiting
as days each arrive
for what the season
brings surely alive.
Certain white snowflakes
to fall here and there,
mirror of feelings
now just stand and stare.
Awaiting the moments
of white snowy hills
and all that Christmastime
surely fulfills.
Links to tomorrow
from each dawning day
brings me much closer
to white snows array.

Sight That They Need

If you have fallen
and trouble has come
let the one help you
that’s Jesus God’s Son.
Troubles may enter,
yet answers will find
a place from Lord Jesus
that enters your mind.
Many a threshold
we’ll stumble and fall,
yet God will help you
to conquer them all.
Many times people
will judge and compare,
yet they will one day
see how they are there.
Sometimes the minutes
of which they behold
might just be seconds
that surely foretold.
A minute, a moment
might surely succeed
giving those judging
the sight that they need.

In Christmas Gaze

Winter has entered
with no time to spare
as it awakens
the mornings cool air.
Winter has risen
and driven its ride
as all the rhythms
each surely abide.
Sections of pages
are written in time
such as the ages
of winters design.
Winter has blossomed
with its scenes to see
that are so awesome
with Christmas degree.
Winter is bringing
the snowy detail
with us each singing
as it does compel.
Blossoms of white snow
so fluffy and true
I will be throwing
as snowballs at you.
Yet now I’m waiting
for winter white days
while in Christmas gaze.
Winter has entered
and bringing its flow
of which that’s centered
around Christmas snow.

Strengthen Your Soul

Just when you’re breathless
you’ll find how to breathe
if you’ll say Jesus
in You I believe.
If you are worried
from times everywhere
take a little breather
and say a little prayer.
Just when a problem
comes clear into view,
let Jesus come then
and He will help you.
Timeframes might burden,
yet minutes will pass
and you’ll find blessings
that enter at last.
Just when you’re breathless
give Jesus control
and He will enter
and strengthen your soul.

Days Are A Counting

Fall has been driven
from its point and time
and now there’s winter
with its own design.
Fall will return then
one day as desired
as every season
is surely transpired.
Winter is showing
so certainly true
scenes that amaze me
as also do you.
Fall is a memory
now in the past
seeming as minutes
that went a bit fast.
All of the colors
are now gone away
leaving the essence
of leafless today.
Snow is to follow
and paint it all white
as old man winter
comes quick in sight.
Days are a counting
as winter prevails
and I see snowflakes
of many details.
Each one that falls
is differently found
as it is landing
so soft on the ground.

Answers May Surely

Answers to questions
might not of said
what that you wanted
to be in your head.
Little known fractions
of what that we hear
may be the answers
that aren’t so sincere.
Answers to questions
may need some fresh air
come from the blessings
of moments of prayer.
Many times questions
might fill up a place
with answers followed
by my moments of Grace.
Answers may surely
not seem very clear,
but they may one day
come from yesteryear.

A Beautiful Rose

Seen are the clingers
that hold into place
now and tomorrow
without changing face.
So many people
will not seek a change
and their tomorrows
then end a bit strange.
Sometimes the clingers
of troublesome past
find that they’re worried
from shadows they cast.
Don’t let your clinging
to hold you away.
Let Jesus help you
as you kneel and pray.
Seen in the portholes
throughout clinging time
are all the minutes
of none changed design.
Let God to change you
the way that He chose
and you’ll become then
a beautiful rose.

In A Whirlwind

Life in a whirlwind
blows there about
while sometimes seeming
that there’s no way out.
Life in the fast lane
so many will find
times of confusion
inside of their mind.
Life in a whirlwind
sometimes will foresee
as misdirection
a dismal degree.
Life that is hurried
leaves many around
standing and searching
for some solid ground.
Life in a whirlwind
can surely release
if ones will take time
to pray for some peace.

for Oct 31, 2009

Yearning for moments
might just make the beginnings
for wanna gone mad.

Timetable seasons
make beginnings and endings
that many don’t see.

Now is a linkage
connected to tomorrow
with minutes passing.

Shadows are levers
which are used to envision
what eyes cannot see.

Long awaited winter
brings its footsteps into view
as snow painted hills.

Castles on the beach
made of sand from time gone by
will soon wash away.

A letter written
can become what’s regretted.
Your heart just might change.

A mere glancing blow
from an untimely moment
can make ones to pray.

In a looking glass
is the fragrance of people
that many don’t show.

Hashing through problems
will sometimes make more problems.
Haste might just make waste.

Timid as a sheep
many lose every moment
without an effort.

Time in the twilight
brings so many fears to life
that need not be feared.

A wind blown moment
makes particles remembered
as seasons in time.

Bells in the distance
ring sweet sounds of melodies
that Christmas will hear.

Many have passion,
yet some are just found clueless
of what it’s about.

Places are gathered
as people do their bonding
for unknown reasons.

Certain situations
are needed times of torment
to make us stronger.

A mere glancing blow
might be what that is needed
to get something done.

In place of anger
let your heart to find a prayer
and your anger might cease.

Camouflaged scenery
might be distant memories
that still live today.

The heat of moments
might ignite blazing fires
that don’t need to burn.

Ones in a portrait
might of forced the smile you see.
Some pictures will lie.

YoVille Haiku

New days a dawning
makes the time for designing
much better to come.

Thrifty can be bad
if you ignore what’s healthy
to by something cheap.

Hands held together
are the chains that will unite
one link at a time.

Inner most feelings
make minutes to fall apart
or surely blossom.
