Christy Birmingham of Poetic Parfait fame wrote this book of poems.
Yet, it’s more than a collection of poetry. It is clearly a journey, a journey that begins in pain.
As she took me along her travails using metaphor to an exquisite height, I became enlightened. The rhythms of her near and not rhymes rocked me in their arms.
Her pondering did not pander. Rather, I looked out upon her reality with a gentle concern .
In the end, I was rewarded with the sense of being freely born, and although not into a perfect ending, into a sense of dignity, positive energy and wisdom.
The final poem in Christy’s book is titled “What If”. Therefore, I ask, “what if you read it?” Well, if you do, you will be inspired, too!
