I started this blog in 2012…however I figured today is a great day as any to reintroduce myself, so here goes… please pull up a seat, or spread out your arms for a warm hug…or your hand for a firm handshake…
my name is Olubunmi (Bunmi) but I write under the name Boomie Bol.
I am wife and a mom of 10-year-old fraternal twin daughters.
I am Nigerian who lives in the US.
I love books so much so naturally; libraries are one of my favorite places.
I started writing as a child, maybe at 5, however it was always behind my Bible; asking God for world peace, and if I could pray for five or six hours so he could forgive the devil and the world could become better. I find that I still carry that innocence and naiveté́ in my belly.
I believe my first shared poem was at age 13 or so. it was titled “Universal Woman” a gift to my high school principal.
for almost 15 years. I did not write…
these days I write at least 7 poems daily. I also write short stories, and have several manuscripts buried all over. I share my poems and short stories daily on this blog and on my IG page- @boomiebol.
I write about love, life, loss, and the random lots in between.
I also perform my poetry at events, and have had the good fortune of performing at several events over the past few years.
I am available to perform/ speak at your next event.
I am currently working on my first book, titled “paper heart” it is targeted for fall 2020 release, and I am excited for this dream to unfold before my eyes.
I am counting on your immense support when it is officially out…please watch this space and my other social media spaces for more details…
I am a big believer in kindness…words have offered me the pleasure. I hope to be able to repay others back by sharing my work.
Welcome to my blog.
