Good morning, everybody 🙂

Got up this morning and decided I’ll do something for ChristyB blogging as Poetic Parfait. It’s small perhaps, but my little bit.

For those of you who don’t know, Christy Birmingham recently released her anthology of poems, Pathways to Illumination.

Now, to be candid, I’m not really into poetry but do dabble with some haiku now and then. I’ve even written stuff that passes off as poetry. However, I’ve always enjoyed ChristyB’s poems which she posts on her blog, Poetic Parfait.

I thought, (yes, sometimes I do that) some of the regular visitors to my blog might love her poems. Therefore, I decided to do my part (and not just because she’s a friend) but because she deserves recognition for her talents.

This is not a review, for I don’t have what it takes to do justice to her work. However, I’ve read several wonderful and heartfelt reviews on her blog.

Click on the image below and it’ll take you to her blog where you get to read a marvellous review by accomplished poet Julie Catherine, who gave a 5-star rating. I found that truly beautiful of Julie and well deserving of ChristyB.

I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing ChristyB all the very best.

Oh, while you’re at it and if you’re into poetry – do buy her book. Click on the book cover above 🙂




Have a great week ahead 🙂



    1. Hello Aquileana,

      Lovely of you to stop by with a comment 🙂

      Yes, Christy’s works are worth the mention and I’m doing my small part.


  1. Hello Eric,

    I am pleased you took some time to introduce us to Christy. I’ve not visited her blog before but will love do so, especially as she’s another creative mind on WP.

    It’s great to see writers and poets in print, so BIG congrats to her. May I also use this medium to wish you a happy new month, especially as we are approaching Xmas.

    1. Hello Uzo,

      If you’re into poetry – Christy’s blog is worth a visit and more 🙂

      We’ve a nice community here in Blogsville and can leverage off one another. No pressure, no compulsion – if we like their work, we should lend a hand, I reckon.

      Looking forward to your novel 🙂

      Yes, Christmas (now) means one thing for me – my two older children home from Australia and USA – to be able to spend a week or so as a family again.

      Thank you and all good wishes,

  2. This is very kind of you to do , Eric, I follow Christy’s blog for a long time and she is a great poet and a lovely person. She is well deserving the promotion on your blog!
    Have a wonderful day!
    Peace, Francina 🙂

    1. Hello Connie,

      I’ve done much research on ‘karma’ and even write about it in my Fallen Grace series – didn’t know they were handing out points 🙂

      Yes, we can all do with some leg up – even the famous, remain so because of all the support they continue to receive.

      Thank you and all good wishes,
