Sit down and stay awhile. Hungry? Let me grab you something. Poetic Parfait is a delicious treat for the mind.
Read poetry, enter discussions about the poetic word, listen to music, and embrace words that intend to inspire.
I began Poetic Parfait in 2011, and the amount of support it receives on a daily basis humbles me. I began to write poetry at this site as a way to help myself get through a period of depression. As I typed the lines, I found they helped me work through my feelings and darkness that I felt around me.
As I published poems, I was amazed at the kind reception they received (so quickly!), within the blogging community. I started to become friends with other writers, and they left me messages to say my words helped them in some way. Those comments gave me strength and courage to continue to write. Today I am so proud of Poetic Parfait.
This site is a haven for you to gain insights through poetry about love, connection, endurance, inspiration, health and more. You are welcome to the poetry table and we also serve up flash fiction, short stories and book-related posts.
To find out more about me, listen in on my podcast interview on The Authentic Woman radio show. Thanks to the host Shannon Fisher for having me as a guest!
You can also check out my first poetry collection Pathways to Illumination. Below is the trailer for the book; Pathways to Illumination chronicles the path of a woman after the end of an unhealthy relationship.
May the words at Poetic Parfait delight your eyes and calm your mind. May you be healthy in spirit and happy in heart.
