If I were?


dbb9057a844180f7c8ba0efc2d605517My Featured Blogger this week is Drew B of the blog site Rumenate (intentionally misspelled). I don’t know much about Drew–where he lives, what the B stands for. But I do know that his sparse and sometimes enigmatic poetry always intrigues me.

Read him and ruminate.


If I were

If I were
A stray?
Would you
Take me in
would you
Find me
Someone else?
Would you
Respond this way
Not me?
Would you
Take me back
To return?
Would I be allowed
To repair myself?
Would you
Be able to remember
What we were

    Mitch! Thank you so so much for this kind post.

    I really appreciated the reference to my on and off postings. I’ve found that life gets in the way and then I find the need to write more compelling than the busyness I get myself wrapped into.

    I’m from Holland, MI last name is Bomhof.

    I’ve largely been writing what has been floating in my mind for most of my life.

    Poetry is an odd outgrowth where it allows me to express thoughts concisely, yet for some who enjoy the prose it really touches them.

    On that note,

    This feature today really touches me. I never would have imagined anyone would read my words and crazier still, make their way back for more.

    I’m humbled by this, and it’s comments like these that keep me writing.

    Thanks again!
