Heading Back


Hello my friends

It’s 79F degrees right now at 3:30 PM with a 40 percent
chance of rain. It should start cooling down in a little bit.
This passed week has been an eventful one hehehe. What
am I saying, the whole month has been busy with travels
and cookouts as well as tons of picture taking. Judy and
I have taken some wonderful pictures and logged millions
of memories since our move up here, let alone all of the
memories we gathered when we lived in Texas after we
got married. Yes, time has moved in a mesmerizing pace
as we went on many journeys together. Trips down south
to Port Aransas and all. Judy and I miss those ventures,
but we’re finding many more as we walk together in our
lives up here in Maine. Next month we’re planning to go
back down to Cutler Maine and take Benny. Cutler is
a little lobster fishing town by the ocean. Benny will get
to see the ocean for the first time. We’ll most assuredly
get tons of pictures hehehe with Benny in them. Yet for
now, he is enjoying playing with all of his cousins ever
so often and their names are Fenway, Willow, Chilli,
Esa and Josie. They of course are dogs if ya didn’t
already guess hehehe. Our neighbors moved the other
day and we already miss them. Benny totally misses
the kids. He keeps sitting in the driveway facing their
house hoping to see them. He doesn’t realize they are
gone yet. Poor guy! He loved those kids. Maybe they
will come to visit sometime. I’d sure love to see them.
Their mom is a nice gal. She’s almost the same age
as my daughter. I tried to help them when I could,
but we could only do so much. God is in control.
Well, it’s onto yet another topic (hopefully hehehe).
There’s a nice little breeze blowing the curtains as
it swishes through the windows. I thank God for
breezes 🙂 Poor little Benny doesn’t get much rest,
because he feels that he must follow either Judy or
I every time we get up to go to do something in the
other room LOL. I go to the restroom a lot and
he tags right behind me to sit at the bathroom door
and wait for me to come out. Of course today he’s
been just following me there and then making a bee
line back to the PC room in front of the fan and
to be along side Judy. I had let him out to go potty
2 times and back in 1 time this morning and Judy
let him back in after I had let him out the second
time hehehe. He was so excited to see Judy being
he had seen me off and on all morning that he was
crying in his doggy voice saying I Love You hehehe.
It was so sweet. He hates to be away from either
of us. God did his magic and gave us the little boy
that we otherwise could never have. Yeppers, he
be our little boy hehehe. Hehehe hey Jamye, your
little brother has more hair than me LOL. Well
my words are drawing to a close, for I cannot
think of anything else to say hehehe. Judy and I
are still playing FarmTown on Facebook and yes
we still watch all of our favorite TV programs.
Oh yea, my Aunt Jody had a heart attack the
other day and she is in a bad way. Jody is one
of my mothers older sisters. Keep her as well as
my mom in your prayers. My mom has been busy
taking care of her mom, my grandmother for a
long while. Grandmother will be 105 this year.
Hey God, I don’t wanna live that long on this
Earth especially in this old worn out body that
struggles to move and never gets rest. Heaven
cannot come too soon for me :), but I will enjoy
as best that I can the time that I have with all of
my family and friends. I am hoping to see some
of my immediate family one day soon, but time
will only tell whether Judy and I will ever have
enough money to travel to Texas one day for
a visit or some of them come up here and that
would be great. Well, I guess it’s time for me to
be heading back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s brand new
poem. So, it’s away I go to that little place of
my recollection that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I believe I may have found a good title,
but we shall see, huh hehehe! Here goes…

Heading Back

Doorways open
doorways close
some found landing
on our toes.
Heading back
through memories
you might find
some raging seas.
When your value
of a day
finds an unfit
times doorway,
heading back
to where you need
might plant lessons
as a seed.
Don’t continue
raging strong
somewhere that
you don’t belong.
You might find
by heading back,
that your wheels
get back on track.

Ok so that might not be one of my greatest poems hehe,
but it says what I intended to say, I think LOL. Oh well,
if you didn’t understand it, then it wasn’t meant for you.
So I guess I need to find a stopping place before I begin
rambling again hehehe. Judy and I are both getting a tad
hungry. So I guess I need to be telling you what I tell you
every week and that is I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers, 10 more poems, but no Christmas poems this
week. maybe next week. Also I have yet again written 22
more haiku for all the haiku lovers out there. Now I think
I need to be searching to find that confounded off switch
that loves to play hide and seek, but not before I wish you
a most wonderful God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. Now to find that off switch. Found it
riding on Benny’s back try to make like a little tiny cowboy.
Hehehehehe Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Wonders of The Universe

Space is seen
with narrow eyes
as so many
see the skies.
Wonders of the
play their stories
verse by verse.
Pages turn to
glimmers seen
some found as
a moments dream.
Thunder and lightning
day to day
have so much
they want to say.
The wonders found
up in the sky
find ones asking
how and why.

Peoples Minds

Thinking thoughts
of where and when
leave ones where
they need begin.
Thoughts of time
with countless ages
peoples minds
will turn the pages.
Simple settings
many see
peoples minds
through history.
Sometimes shadows
seen at glance
mimic ones
with song and dance.
Peoples minds of
to and fro
often lead them
where they go.

Summers Phases

Stages of the
might seem as
a little rhyme.
Repeating glimmers
sunny day
as the summer
goes its way.
Summers phases
might be found
as some raindrops
on the ground.
Beyond stages
that we see
there might show
some history.
Summers phases
written true
in the season

Winters Shadows

Now as memoirs
of my past
winters shadows
now are cast.
Within windows
summers breeze
I imagine
snow on leaves.
Snowflakes falling
from the sky
winters shadows
low and high.
For those snowflakes
land so sweet
on the ground
beneath my feet.
Winters shadows
I now find
daily on my
summer mind.

Waging Turnstiles

On our journeys
daily found
we are needing
look around.
For some turnstiles
found at hand
might snap back
like a rubber band.
Waging turnstiles
without thought
might lead to
what needs not sought.
Certain journeys
need not start,
for they might
tear you apart.
Waging turnstiles
without thinking
might just cause
a day of sinking.

Nervous Time

Withered from worry
makes you impaired
and causes stumbles,
because you are scared.
Let Jesus help you
when you are so worried
and let Him guide you
when you are hurried.
Don’t let emotions
of worry and grief
lead you down hallways
of doubting belief.
Use nervous time
as tools to bring true
learning the lessons
much better to do.
Of course we all stumble
with moments we find,
but learn to grow from
that nervous time.

Mornings Glory

The dawn of day
comes with a story
written with
its mornings glory.
Words are heard
with phases seen
as they page
our window screen.
Found as stories
in my sight
mornings glory
ends the night.
Bringing pages
words to read
mornings glory
plants a seed.
Then it blossoms
a great story
that’s begun with
mornings glory.

Hints of Sunshine

The clouds moved in
and hid from view
the blue skies glimmer
there and to
Yet some sunshine
finds its way
seeping through
the clouds of gray.
Hints of sunshine
bring us light
with its beauty
now in sight.
The clouds still move
and try to hide
what they hold now
deep inside.
Yet they burst then
with some rain
that falls from
our windowpane.
Hints of sunshine
then will grow
with the sight of
its rainbow.

Curtains Blow

I feel a breeze
of to and fro
as I watch
the curtains blow.
As if breathing
in and out
all the breezes
make their route.
Curtains blow
with every frame
as they come
and go again.
I feel its breath
upon my face
as it blows
with little trace.
Only curtains
blowing true
shows the breezes
daily view.

Many Wishing

Some are found just
wishing for
empty dreams
upon a star.
Many wishing
not so good
for what all
they know they should.
Empty wishing
only shows
settings for
a lot of lows.
Let God guide you
as you wish,
making prayers
of His delish.
He can turn your
wish to prayer
as you search
with love and care.

Wanting a blessing
needs your eyes to be opened
so you can see it.

Flowers of summer
await for moments of rain
to water their roots.

Billows of white clouds
float by as hot air balloons
seen across the sky.

Acorns fall abundantly
in the Texas summertime
as gifts from oak trees.

Scenes of a river
flow as magic in daylight
and sounds heard at night.

Withered perception
brings the wrong view to be seen,
so look with new eyes.

Onlooking people
often see what has happened
and not what caused it.

Beyond this moment
lies chances for better days
written in blessings.

Nobodies perfect
and we all will make mistakes,
so don’t point fingers.

The heat of summer
brings the hope for wintertime
with cooler weather.

Sometimes a dreamer
only sees a misconception
of what that is true.

Patterns of daylight
bring some shadows to be seen
as some wanted shade.

Gliding through mishap
leaves some troubles to be found
when you cease gliding.

Having some patience
doesn’t mean just waiting now,
but for anything.

The looks on a face
might show you a deception
that they are hiding.

Beyond confusion
are the answers that we need
if we will just look.

A dirt path of time
might sometimes kick up some dust,
hiding what is there.

Watermelon seeds
help the melon reproduce
what that taste so sweet.

Flavors of living
come as sunshine and some clouds
along with some rain.

Someone’s agitation
could start a large commotion
that could of been doused.

Admiring artwork
needs you to understand it
and search for the view.

While we are living
there are others not so well
that are needing help.

A Common Ground


Hello my friends

How have you been? We’ve been doing Ok with just
a few days in the 80’s thank God. Today it’s supposed
to be a high of 82F degrees which it is at this moment.
The rest of the week is supposed to be in the mid 70’s
or thereabouts. We might get a little rain today and
on through Tuesday. Judy, Benny and I went over to
Dennis and Trudes (Judy’s sister) yesterday for a cook
out. Benny had a blast playing with all of the dogs LOL.
There were 6 dogs in all including Benny. Two of them
were her sister Barbara’s and two were Dens and Trudes,
leaving one owned by Den and Trudes son. Yep, there
were dogs running all over the place. Hehehe big ones,
tall ones, tiny ones and small ones. Benny was one of
the small ones hehehe. Willow was the tiny one being
she’s a 5 month old Yorkie. The dogs played until they
were all panting from exhaustion hehehe. I had to come
home rather early being I had all of my poems needing
to be written and I had not yet begun writing them hehe.
Judy and Benny stayed there visiting with her sisters
until almost midnight LOL. Benny was one pooped lil
pup when he got home. Speaking of a tired pup, Benny
just strolled in yawning and stretching hehehe. I picked
him up and gave him a hug and then laid him in Judy’s
PC chair to catch a little more sleep hehehe. Judy’s still
in bed asleep, but I figure she’ll be up in a little while.
Benny was just looking over at me as if saying, hey you
are way too far away, so I rolled Judy’s chair over here
next to me hehehe. He’s happy now 🙂 I’m keeping the
light off so he can rest, so I’m having to type in the dark.
No I do not have an illuminated keyboard hehehe. Wish
I did though, but this is one of those times that I’m glad
I know how to type hehehe. I do mess up often and hit the
wrong keys, but I catch it from time to time hehehehehe.
This is one reason I like to have Judy go over what I’ve
written before I send it, but often that doesn’t happen
and it gets sent with all of the typo’s LOL. Right now
as I look outside, it looks like rain, but only a chance
for a sprinkle or two hehehe. I’m trying to keep tabs
on it, being we have a lot of windows opened to let in
a breeze. Nope, we haven’t got an air conditioner. The
one that came with the house that’s built into the living
room wall quit working 4 years ago and isn’t worth
fixing, being we don’t stay in the living room and for
it to air condition the whole house it would run up a
rather hefty light bill that we cannot afford. So we just
have a lot of fans strewn through the house. They do
a fairly descent job. All of our windows open side to
side and will not suffice a window unit and portable AC’s
cost way too much. Oh well, we’ll survive. It’s not like
we have summers that last a long time like down Texas
ways. Nope, summertime is actually nearing its end up
here and may be done in a few weeks to a month hehe.
It may last longer, but God only knows the answer to
that question. Well it’s 2:30 PM and about time for me
to give Judy her wake up call hehehe. She was also
tuckered out from the long stay at her sisters house.
I had to rub her down with Benadryl, being she had
heat rashes all over her neck and shoulders from being
out in the sun. I always found me some shade to hide
in LOL. I know a few might of thought I was being an
antisocial, but the ones who knew me well, know that
I get dehydrated easily and therefore cannot sit in the
sun for a long extended amount of time. I do love this
breeze that’s blowing in at the moment 🙂 Benny’s still
sleeping in Judy’s PC chair right beside me. He likes
to be close to us. I’ve gotta give him another trimming
today as well as a bath. He’s been scratching a lot
since he got back yesterday. Time for a flee and tick
bath hehehehe. I thank God for giving us Benny and
allowing us to be a family. Benny’s the little boy that we
never had. People may laugh, but we love our little
boy and he loves us. The settings for a blessing might
be right in front of your eyes, but you may not see it
because it’s not what you wanted. Often we will not
see the blessings until we get to that right place in time
to where our eyes are opened. Sometimes the blessings
will stay in wait for years until we are in the right frame
of mind to see them. Mine were uncovered over 22
years ago when I sobered up. I saw how I had been
using my many blessings all the while, but just hadn’t
noticed them. Some call my poetry a gift, but I call it
a blessing, because it was one of the things that helped
me to set in motion a new life. I had been writing all
of my life, but never had truly seen the words that I
had written down until I was ready. When I was a kid
I wrote my emotions down on paper, but never truly
understood what I had written. It took many years of
God’s preparation for me to get to where I needed to
be so that I understood the blessings. Also my many
blessings are my family. God blessed me with a mom
and dad that loved me no matter what. My dad gave me
the influencing that I needed to further my many abilities.
We became the best of friends on the last years of his
life. We were much more than father and son. God
had blessed us with a common ground that connected
us. Not just being my dad, but having the same health
issues that almost took my life in 1995. We sat and
talked about silliness of our lives and had some laughs.
Thank you God for that. Now, have you got a moment
that you may be overlooking that might be the blessings
that God has given you? Look around you and look
with clear eyes, not just filled with regrets. Right now
could be shining blessings from God that you never
knew existed, because you were too focused on other
things. OK, so I reckon it’s time for me to begin my
little search back through all that I’ve written here to
see if I can find a good word or phrase that might work
for the title for today’s brand new poem. So, it’s away
I go to that little place of my recollection that I like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I might of stumbled
upon a good title just little ways back. Hehehe it’s close
to another title I used a few years ago, but when you’ve
written over 7000 poems it starts getting hard to come
up with new titles LOL. I just added (A) to the title to
make it different hehehe. So here goes with the poem.

A Common Ground

When your situations
only show true
things in your eyesight
that live within you.
Seek a common ground
through your now today
as you tarry on then
on your merry way.
Find a common ground
within the ones you see
and find the many blessings
through your history.
Don’t be so judgmental
that you only find
the ones right before you
standing out of line.
Look and find a likeness
that could live in you
and a common ground then
might just clear your view.

Well, I hope that made at least little bit of sense to you.
Benny just heard Judy get up and go to the bathroom and
he hopped out of the chair to go and greet her. Judy and
Benny are now in here with Benny plopping down in his
little bed in the floor beside me LOL. Now he’s moved to
the other side of me in the floor near the door. So I guess
it’s about time for me to be telling you what I tell ya every
week and that is, I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers, 10 more poems, but none are Christmas poems
this week. Hehehe maybe next week. Also 22 more haiku
for all of the haiku lovers out there. I hope you enjoy them.
Ok, so now I reckon it’s getting near the time for me to be
searching for that blasted off switch that loves to elude me,
but not before I wish you all a most wonderful God filled
week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too. Now,
to find that off switch. I see ya down there making as a
shadow of Benny hehehe. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

P.S. 2 of the poems are sort of silly named
A Spiders Day and Tinted Shades hehehe
Oh yea hehehe P.S. again
Benny turned 1 year old July 16th 🙂

Weathered Souls

The weathered souls
of time gone by
may be asking
how and why.
Things they’ve seen
throughout their days
now just seem
just like a haze.
Things have changed
of which they’ve seen
as some pages
running stream.
The weathered souls
now seek release
while they wait for
time to cease.
Heavens doors
of journeyed miles
give the weathered
souls some smiles.

A Little Breeze

A simple sign
of breezes blowing
which way they’re going.
A little breeze
so sweet each day
brings us in
a cooling way.
For with sunshine’s
essence heat
a little breeze
can then defeat.
As each stage is
set to see
a little breeze
is given free.
Yet on some days
summers seas
it’s real hot
without a breeze.

Tainted Windows

When we’ve driven
minds desire
limitless with
tainted fire,
windows viewed
from where we stand
might just be
our sinking sand.
Tainted windows
that we’ve found
might just echo
all around.
So when tainted
is all you see,
look for peace
that’s given free.
God will give a
better sight
if you’ll seek for
what that’s right.
Then the tainted
pages turned
will just be
your lessons learned.

A Spiders Day

He crawls up
and then crawls down
as he crawls then
all around.
A spiders day
begins with time
in it’s web
of its design.
It might be
just hanging there
awaiting for
someone to scare.
Yet its journey
to and fro
often ends with
bitter flow.
Someone filled
with water play
then might end
that spiders day.
It might fall
and crawl no more
as it lies there
on the floor.
A spiders day
might then be seen
as a rushing
bitter stream.

Find God’s Blessings

With a mind
that can not see
there is hidden
what that’s free.
Things each day
that are displayed
given freely
Jesus made.
If you’re always
with closed mind
only sadness
you will find.
Let God’s glory
shine on you
and show then
what’s really true.
Don’t let sadness
to impart.
Find God’s blessings
in your heart.

A Tree of Time

There’s this little
tree of time
that now lives
so small and fine.
It grows slowly
with each day
even if it’s
winters way.
It might slow down
resting true,
but it’s growing
with its view.
It might seem
not so alive,
but it surely
seeks to thrive.
For it’s journeys
days design
is to be
a tree of time.

A Feather Floats

Sitting watching
waves in reach
on an island
with a beach,
I could see
some tiny boats
seeming as
a feather floats.
In the waves
they’d toss and turn
as a feather
I discern.
Oh so graceful
in the sea
the boats got closer
then to me.
They’re not tiny
not at all,
for they’re ships
with mast so tall.
Yet they seemed as
tiny boats
looking as
a feather floats.

Peaceful Surrender

Moments might burden
us with a frown,
but you can turn it
then upside down.
Peaceful surrender
of moments detail
can often keep us
from living in Hell.
So often burdens
will come unto us
littered with moments
we sought not discuss.
But surely friendship
can help you get by
giving you peaceful
surrender reply.
Let Jesus help you
to find what you need,
peaceful surrender

In The Dark

Without the light
the darkness finds
often worries
in our minds.
In the dark
the things become
shadows found
that make ones run.
Don’t let darkness
give you fear,
for Lord God
is always near.
Let not fear for
things not seen
keep you from
a heartfelt dream.
Find some peace
to now embark
as Lord Jesus
in the dark.

Tinted Shades

While walking on
my journeys way
I dawned my shades
a sunny day.
My tinted shades
that I put on
paved the way
soon after dawn.
I strolled out
while walking fast
seeking for my
shadows cast.
Yet when I was
looking down
my tinted shades
fell to the ground.
I then saw
my shadow clear
laughing loud
that I could hear,
for my tinted
shades of time
had just fallen
on a dime.
I picked it up
and then strolled on
with tinted shades
and all alone.

Beyond our today
is a tomorrow to find
requiring today.

Leaping too quickly
could land you on lily pads
that are not alive.

Happiness is found
through today’s perseverance
of what that is right.

Leftover heartache
can cause a marriage to fail,
so get over it.

A cool summers breeze
blows briskly on a high hill
giving a new breath.

Morning awakens
when night has fallen asleep
with stars in the sky.

Often our lessons
live as turmoil remembered,
we’d like to forget.

Our answers to prayer
might not be what we wanted,
but they are answers.

Peace seen as blessings
could be just a tricky way
for Satan’s entrance.

Untruthful heartbeats
can mess with your perception
and leave you empty.

A glimmer of now
lived in yesterdays windows.
So did you see it?

Everyone’s had dreams,
but many turned to nightmares
due to ignorance,

Playing with fire
might bring you many problems
that you can’t handle.

The meanings of words
are sometimes with confusion
due to perception.

Praying for blessings
will need you to be ready
for what God gives you.

Within the darkness
you might hear much commotion
but God is with you.

Leaves on maple trees
now grow back with their colors
awaiting for fall.

The breaking of twigs
gives me the sounds that I need
to turn and to run.

Doing the dishes
gets them ready for supper
and then on to bed.

Lingering odors
of flowers from faraway
now live in my mind.

Breaking the silence
will often cause ones to fear
the sounds that they heard.

An hours minute
thrives as a second of time
that ticks fluently.

Hello my friends

It’s a tad hot up this way today the same as it has been
for the last few days. It’s not as bad though as it is down
south of us. Yep, right now it’s 84F degrees and humid.
Saturday, Judy and I went up to Caribou Maine for our
granddaughter Rylee’s birthday party. We had a great
time. Rylee turned 5 years old hehehe and Judy and I
took loads of pictures. Benny went with us and he had
a great time as well with everybody playing with him 🙂
It was hot up there as well, but in the shade it wasn’t
too bad. Rylee got tons of gifts hehehe, with few that
she already had, but that’s OK. The kids played in the
water sprinkler to cool off. Judy and I took a bunch of
pictures. I took a lot of pictures on the way up there
as usual. It was a beautiful day. Would of been better
if there had been an air conditioner handy to cool off
by LOL, but not many up here own air conditioners
being it rarely gets hot enough to warrant buying one.
Also summertime doesn’t last as long up here as it
does down south. Still, it would be great to be able
to have one, but all of our windows open side to side
and don’t suffice a window unit. There’s one that
was built into the wall of the living room, but it quit
4 years ago and it would be not only costly to fix it,
but senseless, being we don’t stay in that part of the
house and it would run up a rather costly electric bill
to rely on it to cool the whole freaking house LOL.
I think the Air conditioner needs a new compressor,
but still, it’s not worth it. Maybe one day when we
get rich LOL. Right now our fans and all are doing
a pretty fair job. We’ve got a water cooled fan in
our bedroom that helps a little, although it does add
to the humidity a tad hehehe. Ok, so it’s onwards to
another topic. I let Benny back in the house a bit ago
after I had let him out a few hours ago to go potty.
He ran in and hopped on the bed to give Judy some
loving. Benny’s now in here with me asleep in the
floor and Judy went back to sleep. I told Judy early
this morning that I would make her pancakes and
me some egg sandwiches after I finished my journal.
Ain’t we exciting!!!? I’m getting hungry, but finish
this I must. I’m sweating profusely, but it’ll soon
cool off. By the middle of the week we should be
back to mid 70F temperatures God willing and it
can’t happen soon enough for me LOL. Yet right
now it’s still 84F but should start to go down in the
next few hours. Benny went back in the bedroom to
sleep in his doggie bed. We bought him a little fan
that blows directly on him in the floor, so he’s good.
I just peeked in on him and he’s moved off to the
floor in the hallway in the kitchen. There’s a good
breeze blowing through there and hard wood floors
are a little cooler I reckon. Oh yea, Judy and I took
Benny and went for a picture taking drive last Sunday
evening. We took a lot of great pictures. Also Judy’s
sister Trudy came over Monday and brought Fenway
& Willow. Benny and them had a blast running around
the house and climbing all over me hehehe. Willow’s
a tiny little thing weighing only maybe 3.2 pounds and
Fenway weighs about 8.4 pounds or thereabouts 🙂
Benny weighs around 20 pounds. He’s at his full
size. Benny turns 1 year old tomorrow (Monday)
and Judy and I are planning on giving him a little
birthday party hehehe. Yea I know, he won’t have
a clue of what’s going on hehehehehe, but we will 🙂
So, what else is happening around the Pearce’s
homestead? Not much! We’re still doing all of our
farms at Farmtown on Facebook. Being we both
now have 15 farms and are at level 360 hehehehe.
We’ve both started another profile so we could
start off Farmtown from scratch. Judy started hers
a long while ago and is already ahead of me on it.
I just started my new profile a few weeks ago, and
now at level 52. It’s not as hard as is was the first
time being I know a bit more about the game hehe.
It’s our fun. We both enjoy working on each others
farms help each other out. We were all three DOG
tired yesterday evening when we finally got home
from Rylees birthday party. It was fun, but we
were all tired as all get out. We stopped off and
bought some food from Taco Bell, because neither
of us felt like cooking LOL. Well, there ain’t much
else to tell ya about. God has graced us once again
with some great times together filled with blessings.
Of course there have been some bad times, but it’s
with the bad times that we are able to see the good
times more clearly. Look through the shadows of
sadness and find the glimmers of hope. Most surely
God’s goodness is there to be found. Often we just
need to look without our negative eyes. Negativity
in your judgment can prevent you from finding
the good that’s been there all the while and keep
you filled with sadness. Let Jesus help you to
find that Joy in your life. Now I believe it’s time
once again for me to be taking my little journey
back through all that I’ve written here, to see if
I can find a good word or phrase that might work
well for title for today’s brand new poem. So, it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection that I
always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think
I may have stumbled upon a good title, but we
shall see, huh hehehe. Here goes nothing….


Negative thoughts
through our despair
can make you find
some time without prayer.
Let not negativity
to become all you view
when you are striving
to do what you do.
Let God The Father
to help you withstand
life’s snapping troubles
as times rubber band.
Search through the moments
that you now perceive
and find the blessings
in your life to weave.
Negative pathways
can maybe be good
if they are truly
right now understood.
Learn from the negative
sights that you see
how things can change
through our history.
Negative lessons
can positively grow
into much better
timeframes to bestow.
Histories passages
then unto there
show us their blessings
with answers to prayer.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and all hehehe. Also,
I hope you enjoyed the poem hehehe even if ya didn’t
understand it LOL. No matter! Well it’s 86F degrees
right now and Judy’s still in bed sleeping. I couldn’t
handle the heat to even try to lay in bed right now, but
I would if I could. I be tired! I’ll maybe catch a little
15 minute nap later this evening. In any case, I ain’t
complaining, because I always know it could be worse.
I thank God that we are on this none obstructed hill
that allows us a good breeze. Although I do get a tad
nervous when people talk of tornadoes hehehehehe.
Oh well, It’s just the turning of another page. Each
day is a mystery with new things to see. Yeah, some
days may look alike, but their differences are written
in the minutes and hours. Sometimes, it’s just with
our close-mindedness that prevents us from seeing the
changes in the days. Well. Benny came back in here
for a brief and you could tell by the look on his face
that it was too hot for him, so he headed back to the
kitchen floor hallway hehehe. I asked him if he would
like to go back outside and I got no response, though
I might put him back outside anyways in a bit. He
ever so often jumps in his little kiddy swimming pool
to cool off. How do we know that you ask? Well
a few times we’ve let him back in and he was soak
and wet with that being the only way for that to
of happened LOL. So long as he don’t short out his
collar, I don’t care hehehe. Hey, I got in the pool
with him a while back LOL. I just had room though
to sit down, being I’m a rather big guy hehehehe.
Our neighbors bought their kids a little kiddy pool
also, but Benny can’t get to it because of his collar.
So I reckon it’s time once again for me to be telling
you what I tell you every week, I wrote some more
poems and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems with
one of them being yet another Christmas poems.
Also 22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there. I hope you enjoy a few of them. Ok, so it’s
time for me to be searching for that old off switch,
but not before I wish you a most joyful and God
filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now to find that off switch that loves to
play hide and seek. Yet now it should be called
search and sweat hehehe. Found it hiding within
the blades of the fan just twirling about trying to
stay cool hehehe. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

The darned breaker just kicked off. Thank God
for my battery back up hehehe, plus I always save
the journal as I go, to prevent having to start it
all over from SCRATCH 🙂

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe

Sunny Thursday

Sunny Thursday
brings the view
seeing Friday
one day true.
Winds are blowing
through the trees
without charging
any fees.
Sunny postcards

and things we feel.
Even blossoms
of the day
smell a fragrance
of Thursday.
Day long rosebuds

Seasonal Ways

The mornings breeze
is found set sail
with its blessings
in detail.
Seasons are painted
as the wind blows
displaying summer
and all it bestows.
The breeze of summer
finds certain ways
to bring in raindrops
on summers days.
Soon in the ending
summer will pass
leaving but only
some shadows it cast.
The fall comes in
with colors delight
painting up surely
each day and night.
The mornings breeze
that’s now blowing through
is just remembered
as scenes thereunto.
Summertimes weather
with hottest of days
is but a moment

The Elements of Time

When counting moments
time might fall prey
to the elements of time
of day after day.
Sometimes our thinking
could be askew
when we are searching
for things to do.
Often the elements
of times we see
are just a portion
of you and me.
Within a fraction
of times ticking by
the elements of time
leave us wondering why.
Sometimes the shadows
that we find connected
leave us with wanting
timeframes corrected.
The elements of time
are just but a phase
displayed as turning
of pages of days.

Made From A Thought

Momentous motions
that we have sought
are but a portion
made from a thought.
Yet sometimes minutes,
hours and days
leave us all thinking
about some displays.
Often it’s journeys
found not complete
that are the lessons
found as defeat.
Patterns we’ve noticed
that we have done
might be the journeys
we’ve not begun.
Let God to help you
a little a lot
see all the lessons
made from a thought.

Seeking Rain

Now as summer
falls in place
there’s a sunburn
on my face.
It’s the weather
daily true
that which shadows
me and you.
Many daily
just complain
about always
seeking rain.
Yet so many
also show
their true hate for
winters snow.
Snow is water
frozen true,
but it’s rain
on me and you.
So when winter
times you meet
don’t so quickly
up the heat.
Often summer
will be found
with ones AC
gone to town.
Making coldness
same as winter
when the summer’s
front and center.
So don’t always
just complain.
Find some joy
in seeking rain.
It might come
one day for sure
as a tremendous
days down pour.
Then your seeking
might be found
for some sunshine
town to town.

Tomorrows Glimpse

Beyond our doorways
tomorrow’s are seen
sometimes as nightmares
sometimes a dream.
Tomorrows glimpse
might seem out of line
seen from today
with worries design.
All our tomorrows
could become gray
if we allow them
now and today.
Do your best now
and tomorrow will be
not found as bad
in your history.
Yesterdays problems
that follow you
need you to learn then
what you’re to do.
Maybe your past days
of which you’ve found
are filled with lessons
still coming round.
Tomorrows glimpse
can find some release
when you let Jesus
fill you with peace.

Wishing For Snow

Year long persuasions
springtime through fall
seems to make winter
to stand so tall.
With that first snowflake
as white as can be
I find the blessings
that I can see.
So I might always
be found to and fro
sweating through summer
while wishing for snow.
Scenes in my minds eyes
describe a view
found with white snow
from here thereunto.
So if you see me
just looking at the sky,
I might be looking
for summers goodbye.

Patience of Time

When disillusioned
of timeless detail
find you some patience
in God’s giving well.
Let lose of worries
that now does display,
for patience of time
will better the day.
Times you’re discouraged
and just cannot smile,
say a little prayer
and walk another mile.
Patience of time
is found deep within
through many blessings
to one day begin.
Let yourself rest now
with patience of time
and see the blessings

A Puppy’s Love

With a little puppy
the love never ends
for it’s as bubbles
in life’s living winds.
Always just floating
with love and a smile
a puppy’s love
is all of the while.
It may not feel good
on some days for sure,
but it has true love
that’s flavored so pure.
A puppy’s love
will never fall prey
to that of hatred
that many display.
So learn from a puppy
how truly to be.
Never let hatred
be all you see.

Christmas in Disguise

Find now snowflake
inside of your mind
and then see pages
of Christmastime.
Scenes all around us
hidden from view
have Christmas in them
for me and you.
Things we’ve forgotten
each passing day
have Christmas in them
found in some way.
Sometimes our minutes
of which we have done
are just forgetful
of Lord God’s Own Son.
So take the time now
to see with your eyes

Lighter sides of life
can bring a lot of laughter,
but keep it contained.

Today is a time
that will soon be tomorrow
and then yesterday.

When remembering
make sure it’s worth the effort.
Lose the sad baggage.

A list of people
makes up many that we find
we really don’t know.

The losing of hair
makes for a different view
sometimes not so great.

A mere fantasy
could become today’s nightmare
if it is fulfilled.

Today’s solutions
might not work well tomorrow.
Look for new answers.

Never let anger grow.
Search for ways to resolve it
without blowing up.

The weather changing
gives us different perceptions
of the rain and snow.

A letter written
might be real old of nature
and not true today.

Years will pass you by
leaving you in confusion
asking what happened.

The doorknobs of time
often turn while squeaking loudly,
because they are bad.

A butterfly’s dreams
are existed in cocoons
as caterpillars.

Clinging to someone
could cause them to run in fear,
so give them some room.

A forest echoes
sounds we may or may not hear,
so look with your eyes.

Believing in ghosts
needs not be judged as crazy,
but as what is true.

Laughter is healthy,
for it brings alive true joy
if it’s not for pain.

Beginnings will start
and leave an ending alive
for a beginning.

Weirdness is displayed
sometimes as just not knowing
what makes someone tick.

Echoes of thunder
speak loudly about the rain
or just to be heard.

Minutes of grandeur
live with many large egos.
if not perceived good.

The smell of summer
comes floating in the window
as freshly mown grass.

Maybe It Will


Hello my friends

How’s the weather down your ways? It’s been a little
warm up here, but not intolerable. It got a bit warm
Saturday and I soaked a couple of rags up with ice cold
water out of the faucet and laid them on Benny and he
loved that. It cooled him down. Later, he was ready
to play LOL. The temperatures for today and the rest
of the week are supposed to be in the lower to mid 70’s.
Yesterday it got up to 83F degrees which is warm for
up here especially being all we have is fans. Yea, that
ain’t bad. I thank God that we have some good breezes
on top of this hill. Right now at 12 o’clock noon it’s 69F
degrees and there’s a great breeze blowing in. Judy and
I went to the lake Thursday for a little get together with
the family. It was Benny’s first time seeing that much
water, at least up here. I don’t know what or how much
he saw at the lady’s house in Missouri that sold him to us.
In any case, Benny had fun. We took him down to the
little dock and let him get up close to the water, but he
didn’t want to get in it LOL. Last Monday July 2nd was
Judy’s twin sister Trudy and her husband Dennis’s 11
year wedding anniversary. Hehehe they were married
the same year as us and on the 2nd of the month, just 3
months before us. We were married on October 2nd 🙂
Cool huh! Well there isn’t much else that has happened
up this way. We’re still playing on our Farmtowns in
FaceBook and guess what, they added 25 more levels
as well as another farm, so Judy and I are both now
at level 360 and have 15 farms hehehe. Yeppers we
both had acquired so many points that when they did
finally add new levels we had enough points that put
us at the final level AGAIN. LOL oh well, it keeps
us entertained. Life in the fast lane hehehehehe yea.
I just heard Judy stirring about in the bedroom hehe.
She’s alive! I told her I let Benny out a few hours
ago and was going to leave him out there for a little
while longer being it’s such a pretty day. Surely he
would rather be outside than cooped up in here with
us old folks. Yea, I know, he loves being around
us and all, but it’s such a beautiful day outside and
it would be a pity to stay inside and miss it all. Judy
and I most surely will go outside and join him in a
little while. Yet, being that we don’t actually go to
bed until around 3 or 4 AM, we don’t begin stirring
about until the evening LOL. Yeppers we be night
owls. Benny’s turned into a night owl as well hehe.
Speaking of Benny, Judy was doing dishes and he
heard her and made a mad dash for the front door
and Judy went ahead and let him in. He just ran
in here to pounce on me LOL. He’s happy. Now
he’s headed back into the kitchen to watch Judy
wash dishes. He usually camps in the kitchen floor
when I’m doing dishes or cooking hehe. He loves
to sit and watch. I hear Judy in there playing with
him on the bed now LOL. Now they’ve both come
in here. Benny’s grabbing a drink of water 🙂 He’s
so cute. So I guess it’s onwards with the journal.
It’s now 70f degrees at 12:30 PM. Not too shabby!
I worked on our car the other day and replaced
the air filter and spark plugs and noticed that the
morons that put the spark plugs in it back a year
or so ago when the car conked out in Caribou
did not tighten the plugs and that was the reason
the car had begun to smoke. It don’t smoke no
more and it runs like a top. Maybe it will last us
a another year or so, God willing. God’s been
good to us. He has made sure that we have what
we need and even given us a few things to make
our lives more pleasurable. Yet, I believe Benny
was one of the things that we were needing in our
lives. He has definitely brought us joy. He sort
of reminds me of my first dog from when I was
a kid. She was my best friend and always there
to cheer me up. I still to this day think of her.
Often we will overlook many gifts from God
because we have gotten so used to the moments.
Look now and see how blessed you are for the
things God has given you. You might just be
surprised to find out how much you have missed,
due to not seeing. Let God’s blessings be the
shadows in your life that display joy. Don’t let
sadness of a loss to envelop you and keep you
from finding blessings in now and the future.
Heaven is where we will reunite with loved ones
that have gone before us. Death is not the end,
but the beginning of yet another realm of life.
Now I think it’s time for me to begin my little
quest for a word or phrase that I can use for
the title for today’s brand new poem. So it’s off
I go back through all I’ve written here through
my recollection to that place that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I may have
stumbled on a good title, but time will tell LOL.
Here goes nothing hehehe and maybe so 🙂

Maybe It Will

When found in wonder
your time’s might conceal
things that you thought might
not be so real.
Maybe a moment
found that you’ve seen
might be much more than
just a mere dream.
Times that God’s given
in your days affairs
might turn out to be
your answers to prayers.
Often our troublesome
scenes found each day
could be mistaken
in every which way.
Then might be lessons
with Lord God’s appeal
the same as right now
yes maybe it will.
It might be the settings
for new days to come
finding God’s blessings
with each setting sun.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and I didn’t bore ya
too terribly much 🙂 Also I hope you liked the poem.
Hopefully you understood it. If not, oh well hehehe!
Well Judy and Benny are both in here . Benny’s laying
in his little doggie bed beside me. He loves to be near
us for some reason hehehe. Judy’s playing with her
farm in FarmTown hehehe. Actually she’s working on
other peoples facilities right now trying to rack up more
points LOL. I want to give a prayer to my neighbor
that lost his dad the other day. It’s never easy to lose
a loved one, but as I said before, death of our Earthly
bodies is not the end, but the beginning of another life.
If you ever need to talk, come on over dude. Well
with that said, I guess I need to tell you what I tell
you every week and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems with one of them
being yet another Christmas poem hehehehehe. Also
I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out
there. Judy said she’s gonna make us pancakes for
breakfast. Yummy yum yum hehe. Now, let’s see if
I can finish this journal before she gets done cooking.
It’s time for me to begin searching for that confounded
off switch, but not before I wish you a most joyful and
God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now to find that off switch that loves to play
hide and seek hehehe. Found it hiding behind the
curtains catching a breeze 🙂 hehehehehehehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku

A Sky of Gray

With my glance
at skies above
I see God
and all His Love.
A sky of gray
that turns pure white
with each change

to its reply
I’m found seeking

The leaves are blowing

in the days.
The sounds are heard
as breezes blow
sometimes as
they seem to grow.
Blowing briskly
on our hill
like they do
and always will.

Simplistic people
sometimes fail to see the truth
due to ignorance.

Mornings arrival
brings views to be discovered
with a single glance.

A moments burdens
can be resolved with God’s help
if you will just pray.

Looking for trouble
might find more than you wanted,
so wise up and quit.

The window with screen
allows many views within,
but keeps out the bugs.

Life is a journey
made with one step at a time
filled with mysteries.

Anybody can think,
but it takes a wise person
to learn from the thoughts.

So many roses
blossom while hidden from view,
but they do not care.

With mornings sunlight
comes a glimmer of the day
with its emotions.

Many seek Christmas
because what they see right now
is just emptiness.

Often our burdens
are found in many shadows
that do not exist.

Blessings uncovered
might turn into our nightmares
if not treated right.

Flustered and frightened
could come from just not knowing
and fearing just that.

So many ventures
begin with a direction
sometimes set wrongly.

Placing a marker
on the mistakes that you’ve made
could cause you despair.

Learning from mistakes,
means use the many lessons,
but don’t dwell on them.

Beyond perception
is a sight that many see
that might seem confused.

To find who you are
needs you to find your shadow
and see where it lies.

Flavors of dewdrops
sparkle in the dawn of day
as time moves along.

Wisdom is gathered
through the lessons we’ve perceived
and how we use them.

Yesterdays burdens
are just baggage to carry.
Learn what to carry.

Temporary sights
come and go with the blessings
found each day and night.

Don’t Let The Voids


Hello my friends

Have ya melted yet? I’ve noticed that most every state,
of course aside from us up here has had some triple digit
weather this passed week. It’s been raining most every day
up here. If not every day, every other day LOL. We’ve
had a few floods. Hehehe our yard flooded and the kids
from next door put a canoe in it and had a blast hehehehe.
Judy and I took tons of pictures of them rowing back and
forth in our little lake hehehe. It had no chance of getting
up to our house. The water would of just started running
over our drive and down the other side. We’re on a hill 🙂
Yet if it had of kept raining as it was 🙂 we might of had a
moat LOL. Pearce’s Castle with moat and no drawbridge.
Just some steps hehehe. Anyways, there’s supposed to be
a few isolated thunderstorms for a the next few days, but
no flash floods, so that’s good. Judy had to detour down
some back roads to get to Houlton, being the county road
was flooded part of the way. Hopefully the waters have
receded. Going the back roads makes the trip to Houlton
and back a much longer drive. Judy said that one of the
bridges on the way to Houlton was under water. Oh well,
we survived. Not much different than any year up here.
The high today is supposed to be 76F degrees, but right
now it’s 78F hehe. They missed it by 2 degrees LOL. It
should start cooling down about now. Thank God, cause
we ain’t got no air conditioner. Our home has windows
that open side to side and won’t suffice a AC window unit.
We’ve got tons of fans all throughout the house though 🙂
It’s not too awful bad, yet it is humid as all get out and
makes it real hard to sleep or rest or freaking anything.
Winter will be here soon enough LOL. Summers up here
never last too long. I’ve been trimming Benny ever so
often to make sure he doesn’t get too hot. I also figured
it was time for me to trim my beard, so I trimmed it
also hehehe. I cleaned out Benny’s hair trimmer and
I used it hehehe. It’s actually a mans hair trimmer, but
works well on Benny as well, being it has some great
attachments. Benny loves me the trim him. He usually
will lay in my lap and just close his eyes and rest while
I’m trimming him. That’s of course up until I hit a snag
or two hehehe, but I’ll either untangle it or cut it out
and just start trimming again and he lays his head back
down like a good boy 🙂 I was feeling a little peaked
yesterday due to not being able to rest with all of this
humidity and so I didn’t write any poems or haiku,
but I did get to feeling much better last night as the
humidity eased up a tad and let me rest. So I wrote
all of my poems and haiku this morning around noon
time or thereabouts hehehe. I let Benny outside to
go potty and I came in here to begin writing. Shortly
thereafter, Judy got up and let Benny back in the
house and Judy said he first went to the bed and saw
that I wasn’t there and then he ran in here wagging
his little tail wanting me to pet him hehehe, so cute.
None the less, Benny is now behind me in the floor
asleep. We’ve got 3 fans blowing in here hehehehe.
One in one corner and one in the other and then one
sitting in the window, sort of hehehe. I had bought
a water cooled fan for our bedroom, but found later
that being it’s so freaking humid up here, the fan
filled with water just added to the humidity, so we
just use it as a fan nowadays LOL. Hey, I’m from
Texas and wasn’t familiar with the weather that
they have up here in Northeastern Maine. I am now!
It ain’t too bad. At least I’m away from all of that
stifling heat that I grew up with, but I do miss my
family and friends. I do thank God for giving me
the chance to meet Judy and her family as well as
our newest family member, Benny. Also, I am
very grateful for the sights I’ve been given to see
and to photograph as well as many people that I’ve
met. God is so very great. He managed to bring
together two hearts through a yahoo poetry egroup
that were 2100 miles apart in the real world and
united them into one. Texas to Maine became just
a distance to be made as God paved the way. Let
God show you His miracles. Don’t let the voids of
self doubt to hinder your well being. Now I think
it’s time for me to begin my little quest for a title
through all of my rambling words hehehe. So it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection through
all that I have written here to see if I can locate a
good word or phrase that might work for the title
for today’s brand new poem. And it’s away I go to
that place that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I found a good title. Now let’s see
if I can write some understandable words using it 🙂
Here’s goes nothing hehehe………

Don’t Let The Voids

Some times might find
you standing in fear
alone with a void
of thens yesteryear.
Don’t let the voids
of then thereunto
to be all you see now
in your every view.
Let yourself find now
a much better day
through all the sights
of which that display.
Don’t let the voids
to be all you see
through every day
in your history.
Find how that Jesus
can change every view
as you let Him then
to live within you.

Ok, so there ya go. I hope ya enjoyed all my rambling.
Hopefully I said something that made ya grin a little bit.
Also I hope ya got something out of the poem. As I said,
I’ve been writing since about 11:30 AM hehehehehehehe
and I’ll tell ya what. My fingers are tired of typing LOL.
Hehehe I’ve done way more in the past, so it ain’t no
big deal hehehe. Judy’s seen me write over 20 poems
in a days time. Of course that was years ago when we
first got married. I try to nowadays keep it to a bare
minimum of 10 poems and 22 haiku which I might add
is what I wrote today. Out of the 10 poems is one, yes
one Christmas poem. Also in there is a cute little kiddy
poem called Left Over Feelings hehehe. Yes I wrote
22 haiku as usual for all of my haiku lovers out there 🙂
With that said I reckon it’s time for me to be searching
for that old off switch that loves to try and elude me,
but not before I wish you a most wonderful God filled
week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now to find that off switch. Hehehe found it whirling
in the blades of the fan that’s sitting in the window LOL.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Simple Times

Simple times
from thereunto
bring into view.
Simple ways
of said and done
sometimes shine
each dawning sun.
Simple thoughts
of simple times
seem to have
the best designs.
Simple thinking
thoughts inlayed
sometimes have
the best portrayed.
Simple times
we’ve memorized
might seem as
the best comprised.
Simple minutes
tick on by
with the questions
how and why.

Wilted Flowers

Timeless shadows
minds dismay
with the sights
of night and day.
Wilted flowers
soon respond
to some raindrops
Seeming dead
at moments glance
wilted flowers
take a stance.
Raindrops falling
from the sky
become blessings
on what’s dry.
Wilted flowers
then return
for us daily
to discern.

Beyond our tomorrows
there’s life in the breeze
sometimes just as the
leaves on the trees.
Moments partaken
as paintings that move
seeming to fit in
most every groove.
Beyond our yesterdays
that we remember
there can be goodness
now as an ember.
Yet those mere moments
that you recall
might need some hopeful
to win over all.
Not letting sadness
to be all that’s found
well beyond moments
that then come around.

A Well Painted Christmas

A well painted Christmas
in pictures divine
can bring alive
a wonderful time.
A well captured moment
of seasonal cheer
can help you make it
on through the year.
A scene you’ve remembered
in Christmastimes view
can help you smile
when now’s not so true.
A well painted display
of colors so bright
can bring a smile
to a real lonesome sight.
So when some sadness
has enveloped all of you
search for a well painted
Christmas to view.

Seasonal Showers

The weather comes in
with its seasonal views
flavored as showers
of bright morning dews.
Displayed as pages
turning so bright
as those so seasonal
showers in sight.
Rhythms of nature
beat with the hours
found in the moments
of seasonal showers.
Pictured as sometimes
clouds blowing by
seasonal showers
give their reply.
Words in an instance
that moments procure
seasonal showers
might be a downpour.

Winters Perception

As summer moves on
with each day and night
winters perception
might come into sight.
Often the summertimes
nights that we find
make our perception
of our wintertime.
Winters perception
is often our scenes
living as flavors
in summertimes dreams.
Pictures of white snow
found to delight
many will dream of
winter at night.
Then as the seasons
magically changed
they’ll dream of summer
not so deranged.

Temporal Balance

With every second
and minute a day
a temporal balance
makes its display.
Within our moments
counted so true
a temporal balance
comes into view.
Sometimes as sadness
and sometimes real glad
about many moments
that we have had.
A temporal balance
is what we see
with many people
in our history.
Sometimes the moments
slip through our hands
leaving us shadows
no one understands.

Gradient Blessings

All that’s remembered
of moments attained
might be a glimmer
a little abstained.
Yet all those moments
that we were held back,
might be the things that
kept us on track.
Often the blessings
that we each perceive
are just our wantings
not how God would weave.
Gradient blessings
are often viewed wrong
when we are thinking
we do not belong.
Let God to guide you
with His Mighty Hand
with gradient blessings
to help you withstand.

Summers Windows

The stage is set
with window views
seen as pages
summers news.
Summers windows
open wide
letting all the
views inside.
Sometimes rain
on summers days
makes the scene
with clouds of grays.
Summers windows
might be found
with some raindrops
on the ground.
Find the windows
best to view
in the summers

Left Over Feelings

A lonesome turtle
walked then oh so slow
with left over feelings
of a long time ago.
He carried his heartache
inside of his shell
of his true love of
a turtle detail.
This lady turtle
that he left behind
now was a heartbeat
that stayed on his mind.
Left over feelings
that now does perceive
made him to wonder
why he’d ever leave.
He turned around
with a smile on his face
and saw his slowmotion
kept him right in place.

for July 1, 2012

The essence of time
is found in many heartbeats
that we remember.

Glimmers of hope
reside in many shadows
that may be of God.

Wonders of nature
come alive with descriptions
that many perceive.

Today’s persuasions
make us to do what we do
sometimes out of fear.

So many people
make the sadness much greater
that it really is.

Hearing a birdsong
reminds me of summertime
and all its beauty.

Divided heartbeats
leaves room for Satan’s sadness.
Unite with God’s Love.

Feathers of today
blow briskly in the window
giving me a view.

Mornings will blossom
as the night just fades away
leaving memories.

Echoes of true love
are as phases remembered
inside of your heart.

Now is a moment
allowing changes to begin
a much better day.

Beyond this moment
lies the shadows remembered
we might need forget.

Placing a marker
on what that made you to smile
might help in bad times.

Slowing down footsteps
could give you more time to think
about what you’re to do.

Often a true friend
will display some deception
due to humanity.

Weathered perceptions
often misread a moment,
because of its looks.

The windows of time
open widely every day
giving us chances.

As a bird will sing
it will maybe fly about
looking for a mate.

A frown on a face
displays a persons viewpoints
that might need a change.

Guarding too closely
your heart God has given you
might prevent true love.

Angels from Heaven
are often waiting for us
to change our footsteps.

When you’re with sadness
look for a little flower
and see its beauty.
