Yes, her metaphors are cunning, and her near rhymes, feet & other poetic abilities are alluring,

  However, it is her ability to stay focused on the self that make these poems very special & simply personally meaningful.

BTW, the concept of “Versions” itself, is poetry! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Pathways to Illumination

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!
