Writer's Notebook

Do you enjoy writing or reading poetry?  Most of the posts on Big Sky Buckeye are poetry, but I also share short stories, photography, and a few surprises along the way. You are invited to sit a spell and find something you like.  I enjoy sharing my curiosity through my writing.  You are welcome to like, comment, follow, share, or reblog a post.

Writing poetry and short stories can carry a writer through a wide range of emotions.  Today’s poem allows us to pause, smile, and even laugh.  We need to experience more of this, all of us.  Big Sky Buckeye discovered a morning moment filled with sarcasm and humor when crafting “Writing a Classic.”

In addition to my writing, view another journal entry posted on January 17 in From My Journal.  While Big Sky Buckeye enjoys writing poetry and short stories, much of his journal writing is inspired from reading and commenting on other blogger’s posts.

You are encouraged to read a quote updated on January 17 from English musician and songwriter John Lennon.  His words share some unique perspectives of life.

Many of you enjoy photography (either your own or someone else’s).  Southwestern Montana felt the effects of a major earthquake during the late summer of 1959.  Check out the new photograph added on January 13 in the Photo Gallery.

Writing a Classic

Pardon a bit of sarcasm and humor in this poem.  Sometimes, the early morning air produces something to laugh at and have fun with.  In all seriousness, I enjoy writing very much, and I appreciate you for stopping in.  And remember, it is okay to smile and laugh as you read this poem.

Sitting at my writing desk this morn

Feeling quiet peace, verses reborn

 

Actually sitting in the kitchen

Its table welcomes a mind, come in

 

At least the coffee is always close

Never allowing a mind to doze

 

Sometimes, words flow as a writer crafts

Other times, words can’t even complete a draft

 

Robert Frost’s classics, all awaken

Images of “A Road Never Taken”

 

Wondering now, what words will gather

Searching for a poem, words come faster

 

Hemingway understates how he writes

“There is nothing to writing” . . . just write

 

Just writing . . . crafting thoughts into words

Words gather now, like wild zebra herds

 

These best efforts resemble “pig slop”

Destined for the pig sty, one more flop

 

Sarcasm aside, writing with pride

Readers, appreciating the ride

 

Few writers ever craft a classic

As for me, never changing tactics

 

Well, tomorrow will bring much better

Fortunes change, wearing lucky sweaters

From Big Sky Buckeye

Don’t let life’s misses define you.  God’s gift of Grace is our life changer.

Do you write a daily journal?  This inspiring thought comes from my journal, and much of what is written in my journal comes from reading and commenting on other bloggers’ posts.  Thanks to many of you for adding so much to my journal.

John Lennon Quotes

When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad.  For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.

A mistake is only an error; it becomes a mistake when you fail to correct it.

Infinite God

From 1 Peter 5:6-7:  “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you in due time.  Cast all our anxiety oh Him, because He cares for you.”

God, our Creator

In Heaven above

Standing powerful

Sends infinite love

 

Father in Heaven

Promises fulfill

Support and courage

His infinite skill

 

Read God’s Holy Word

Be bold, come to Him

His love filled with care

His Grace overcomes sin

 

Walking with our Lord

His strong hands extend

Trust always in Him

No matter what has been

 

Miraculous brings

Infinite outcomes

Filled with sacred love

Like a beating drum

 

Our finite minds weep

Lack of faith descends

Our infinite God

Holds, never to bend

 

Our Lord’s specialty

Impossible makes

Genuine and true

His love, no mistake

 

Rely on God’s ways

Hopeless turns to hope

Strength overcomes weary

Walking life’s tightrope

 

God’s eternal love

Endures forever

He holds on to us

With faith, whenever

When I am criticized, injured, or afraid, there is a Father who is ready to comfort me.”

From 1 Chronicles 12:18:  Then the spirit came upon Amasai, chief of the Thirty, and he said, ‘We are yours, O David; and with you, O son of Jesse!  Peace, peace to you, and peace to the one who helps you!  For your God is the one who helps you.'”
