New Year Greetings

Standard

With the New Year comes new dreams, visions, and desires…a fresh chance at a new start. Here’s hoping life opens up the year to us like never before; dreams falling in place, purposes taking flight, visions realized.

Happy New Year! May it be your best yet…

Last year, my fingers didn’t find time for the keyboard or pen as much as I would have liked, and it looks like it might be no different this year.

I will continue to write in my notes and such but I might not be able to share as I would like to…some major accomplishments require my undivided attention, and so I need to reprioritize my time, and schedule. I will make every effort to share whenever I can but please don’t hold me to it, especially if I go several months without sharing anything.

Feel free to reach out via email, Facebook, or twitter. I can’t promise I will be regular on those outlets as well, but it will be nice to hear from you once a while.

Have a fulfilling and blessed 2014.

Love loads,
Boomie

Thank You Always

Standard

It must always be said, it can never be said enough, and so as often as I possibly can I say THANK YOU!

For always stopping by, reading, liking, commenting, and offering your friendship & support.

In the midst of life’s chaos, and the many stresses of adulthood, this platform brings me to my centered joy. I find myself smiling like a darling child when I am reading your comments, and posts. Thank you all so much.

I have not been able to respond to all comments as I would like or visit new followers as I should, but I am most grateful.

Have a wonderful Monday and a lovely week. God bless

Thank You Always!

Longing For Words

Standard

I long for the days when words flowed
Like rivers of many water
Pens running dry at the sight of paper
Inks wasted not night after night
Blisters and finger sores
A sign of victory
Wisely masked between metaphors
And Sunday’s steamy nights

Back To Writing Soon…

Standard
I have missed writing
And hope ink from my felt pen &
Blood from my fingertips spill desire and passion
Onto blank screens & papers soon...


*I found my way onto this blog tonight and my heart smiled as words formed in my head :)*

My Grateful Thankful Heart

Standard

There is no doubt in my mind, that I am a loved girl. The wonderful messages of support and love I received following my mini meltdown last Saturday has done more than I could have ever expected or asked for.

I wrote just to ease my mind but your comments, messages,and words of encouragement did more than ease my mind, they lifted my spirits and made me truly thankful. I find myself going back to read the comments, and I cannot tell you enough how truly blessed I am to have you all in my life. THANK YOU!!!

I am truly honored to be a part of this wonderful community and I am genuinely humbled to be friends with such amazing, generous, and kind people. My heart will be forever grateful, thanks so much for making me feel better.

A big shout out to all who have followed and visited my blog in the past few weeks. I am hoping to stop by your blogs soon, and also get back to writing. Many thanks.

God bless!!!

A Poetic Gift And Thank Yous’

Standard

I had the most beautiful day all thanks to God, and you all. I ate, laughed, danced, played, got teary eyed, and all in all had fun.

My day was taken to a new height of gratitude with a wonderful poem I got from my dearest Twinnie; and I thought to share with you all. Thanks so much I am truly grateful, God bless!!!

Once upon a March 1st
Not too long ago
A beautiful sweet mother so full of glow
To deliver they go
While angels from heaven
So full of glee
Celebrate the chosen baby
to ride the sunbeam
A blessing sent to earth
Momma’ gives birth
Calls her living angel
Olúbùnmi

Written by the talented Rosy, thanks Twinnie

YAY!!! This Blog Is 1

Standard

Congratulations to Ms. Cathy Ulrich, winner of the anniversary giveaway…and as a bonus for being my longest reader, and for a while silent follower Ms.Rosy Shea also gets a small token of love, and appreciation.

MANY THANKS TO YOU FOR THE LOVE, SUPPORT, FRIENDSHIP, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND SO MUCH MORE. I had planned to take today’s post to the next level by doing a video with me reading one of my poems, and then expressing some words from my heart, but I didn’t get to it (or maybe i chickened out). Still my heart thanks you all so much.

Glasses raised to you. God bless

 

Love always

Poetry In The Times Of Social Media

Standard

Poems in times of Facebook twitter
and all things social media
beg to be brief in their ramblings

Words are limited to powerful and thought provoking contents
Subjects varying from politics to technology
Characters captivating souls

Then there are wasted days like this
with nothing much to do
Thoughts lead nowhere except to
Meaningless inner debates about exes’ and such
Poems become a few drunken dials and many useless talks

Anniversary Giveaway

Standard

It seems only like yesterday when I grew an extra set of balls and decided to birth this baby. In about a week or so (2/17/13), my blog will be 1 and being the “profound” thinker that I am, I have been reflecting over the past year, and what this space means to me. The journey of this blog has been eye opening, exciting, and challenging to say the least. It has been absolute FUN, and brought such growth to me and my abilities as an aspiring writer.

I have God, and you all to thank for that. In all my deep profound thinking, I thought since I like celebrations (I really am like a 5 year old when my birthday is a few days away), I thought I’d start the upcoming anniversary celebration with a giveaway….YAY!!! HURRAY!!! Giveaways are the best…even though I never win anything :). But it’s not about me winning; this is about you winning a special gift from moi. (A humble thank you of sorts)

Here’s the catch…you must follow me on twitter, like my Facebook page on the right hand corner…and in a few words tell me how my blog has impacted you in the past year…(I have to make you work for it right?). There are so many wonderful readers of this blog, and I really wish I was Oprah right now, so I could give each and every one of you a car or something but…well you know I am not, and I can’t.

The giveaway is open from now till Friday the 15th of February 2013…THANKS TO YOU ALL SO MUCH.

Love &Light

Poets

Standard
Poets& writers of poems are innocent to behold
Imagination swirling and painting rainbows
In their flustered minds

Words are more than alphabets conjoined from preschool
Syllables more than breaks and form
Love is most definitely more than a four letter word
Do not get them started on hate
Their thoughts often deep and with intent

Don’t be fooled however by their canvas of words 
Spilling butterflies cocoa socks& silver lines
On a clear summer noon

Innocence is far from their flustered creative minds


*Post 500 :)* Have a wonderful week friends, God bless*
