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, 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.

Today is Maundy Thursday, a significant date on any Christian’s calendar.  From my Montana memories of attending a Lutheran church, I recall the stripping of the altar and pulpit at the conclusion of an evening service on this date.  The altar and pulpit would be restored just prior to an early morning worship service on Easter.  Today’s poem (look for key words in the verses) will take all of us on  a “Journey to Jerusalem.”

In addition to my writing, view another journal entry posted on April 9 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 April 9 from the words of Japanese writer Haruki Murakami.   His words bring forward a unique perspective of life.

Many of you enjoy photography (either your own or someone else’s).  The crashing surf along Maryland’s Atlantic coast remind us that our Lord’s creation alive.  Check out the new photograph added on April 3 in the Photo Gallery.

  1. Visited Montana a couple years ago, first time, fell in love with it. Most beautiful country I have ever seen and I have lived in a couple different countries and several states. Going to enjoy your post.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Thanks for sharing your journal and your writer’s corner! Both provide a place to pause, reflect, and rest from the rapid flowing river of a blog’s timeline.

    Your Writer’s Corner is especially well done. It’s newsletter format helps this reader focus on highlights. But you already know that!

    How do you do it? Can you help me do something similar?

    Today’s post is freshly pressed with today’s dates but includes comments all the way back to February. Must you first unpublish, update, and then republish the post to provide this oasis for your readers?

    Please, forgive my long comment. Thanks for sharing time and space as your writer’s journey continues. Thanks for making my journal richer, too!

  9. I think it is wonderful that you gather creativity from a variety of sources. Makes perfect sense because no man is an island 🙂. Thank you for the prayers and I wish you the best on your blog. It is obvious that you have put a lot of thought into the shaping of it. 💖🤗

    • Thank you for sharing. I have tried to stay dedicated with my writing on a regular basis with primarily poetry and short stories. Seeking out other bloggers for advice has been quite helpful. Engaging other bloggers and readers with comments has helped to create a community around my blog and its writing.


  10. Hi, I was on the blog – A Time to Share – when I rolled my mouse over your picture. Your name intrigued me, so here I am. I first understood Big Sky country last year when I took a train through Montana and North Dakota. Fabulous. I blogged about it, too. If you want to check it out, the post is called Big Sky, Blank Paper. I also like your blog. I’ll be back! 🙂

  11. From South Africa as I am, I’m always fascinated to read about people abroad. I’ve had a yen for Montana skies, no doubted stirred as a young reader by far too many love stories. Love visiting your slice of heaven, the words so welcome and the sights, a balm for the soul. 🤗

    • Maranda, I appreciate your comment. I have read the same thing, but I enjoy reading other poet’s work. Sometimes, their style of writing makes an impression with me. Some of these styles can be found in my poetry. It has evolved a great deal since I began writing. God’s peace!
