A Book for a Family Picnic

I was asked to submit a book of poetry for a silent auction at the Brinkman Family Picnic in Pewaukee, Wisconsin.  I selected   50 poems from this blog and segmented the book into several chapters.   The chapters were:  Family, Love, Spirituality, and  Memories of Those Who Wait.    There are roughly 12 to 15  poems per chapter.  I shared this book with a close friend as a way to keeping informed of the latest work efforts.   Surprise came in an email this morning.  I received a converted PDF file and 2 jpgs of the front page of the book.   The following is a picture of the cover of the Musings From a Brinkman’s Mind.

I will let you know how the silent auction turns out.    Thank you for the comments on the individual poems.

  1. Very cool looking book Frank, your great writing should be in print my friend.

    • Andrew, Thank you for your compliment. This family book is one step on the way. I apologize for not posting this weekend. It has been hectic getting ready and I will start posting the fourth personal journal poetry tonight if all goes well.

  2. What a handsome volume and a beautiful gift to share with your family, Frank! Congratulations!

  3. Frank,
    I enjoyed Awake. I look forward to hearing more about your book.
