Welcome to My Writer’s Corner

Writer's Notebook

Do you enjoy writing or reading poetry?  Most of the posts on Big Sky Buckeye are poetry. You are welcome to sit a spell and find something that you like.  I enjoy sharing my curiosity through my writing.  You are welcome to like, comment, follow, share, or reblog a post.

Hello readers.  I have returned from my nearly three-week hiatus as my travels took me to Colorado for a wedding and to my native state of Montana to spend time with family.  I am eager to resume my normal publishing schedule, and I look forward to reading and commenting on other bloggers’ posts.

Many readers on WordPress search for Christian-based poetry.  Big Sky Buckeye welcomes you to read a poem that is structured as a prayer, which is entitled “Morning Prayer.”

In addition to the poetry, view another journal entry posted on July 22 in From My Journal.  While Big Sky Buckeye enjoys writing poetry, 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 July 22 from American evangelist and Biblical scholar Vance Havner.   He presents insightful views into the Christian way of life.

Many of you enjoy photography (either your own or someone else’s).  Southwestern Montana is filled with rich history from the early gold strikes that brought thousands of fortune seekers in the 1860s and 1870s.  Check out the new photograph added on June 28 in the Photo Gallery.

  1. I like reading and writing poetry, but generally I like shorter poetry better than really long stuff. I read once that many poetry writers don’t actually read poetry from others which just seems sad and egotistical in a sense.

    • Maranda, thanks for sharing your thoughts. If a poem flows and moves as if the words are a symphony, the reader will stay with the poem to its end. I try to read as much poetry as I can so that my appreciation for what I write grows.

  2. The sounds of a summer morning, drift in to greet us mostly with joy. Birds singing..like my mom would say…twee twee twee twaa twaa ….if you are lu ky they are hold ing on to your twirling seed cake…you would swear they should be dizzy. My neighbor mowing and the aroma of wild garlic..reminds me to ask the wife for a good spaghetti dinner.
    Summertime…when the living is easy.

  3. Hello, from a fellow Montana transplant. Bob & I came here from central CA 13 years ago. We love it in Big Sky Country. We’re in Ennis. I’m a fellow poet, although currently my blog is featuring an A-Z series of inspirational pieces designed to help us look together at adding meaning and purpose to our lives. I can see that your blog already has a large following. Good for you! I look forward to perusing it and finding inspiration from one who shares my love of poetry and my quest to find out the “Why?” to the crazy world we live in and inexcusable acts we witness in the media daily… like synagogue shootings.

    • It is a pleasure to meet you Jan. It is amazing that you live in Montana, and you are blessed to live under the Big Sky. I have been to Ennis a few things, and I graduated from MSU. My youngest daughter and her husband live in Bozeman.

  5. I just caught your comment over at Edward Law’s blog, and realized I’d never gotten over here to see what your blogging loves are. Poetry! and photographs — a wonderful combination. I’m looking forward to browsing a bit, and following you, now.
