Poem: The Next Take

The Next Take

You sat there in the dark, collecting dust
For days upon days
As you laid on a bed of pens and
Scissors with a bent handle.

I let you out
For a short visit here and there,
Undoing your jacket of dust
With a flutter, and a frown on my part.

Tick, tick, said the messenger, and then

The Winter Season: A Poetic Take

Winter has a way of making me long for spring and summer, when the weather is warmer and the outdoor activities are many. But rather than wishing it over, today I will celebrate the coldest season of the year here in Victoria. The winter sun looks on, and it is time to release a poem to honor the season. I hope you like it.

Winter Blue

The blue hues above my head won’t deceive me,
Not today.

The glass door swings shut behind me and
My mouth makes a beeline for
The black striped scarf hugging my neck.
My hands, from within the silky

Pockets of my fitted red jacket, are envious,
Only receiving a third of the protection they would
Get with the fuzzy gloves bundled in a
Box in the entranceway closet.

The wind fights for a taste of my neck,
But I won’t let it nibble,
Not even with my mind busy rotating cups of
Hot cocoa, lemon tea, and a marshmallow or two.

It is not surprising to admire the strokes of a famous oil painting such as Girl with a Sunshade by famous painter, Jules Bastien-Lepage that captures powerful emotions and imagery within each stroke.

However, it is also rare to find a poet with unique style of words who expresses sensitiveness, thought provoking analogies and symbolism as fellow poet and writer, Christy Birmingham.

Christy is an author and a freelance writer residing in Victoria, BC, Canada. Since Christy’s elementary days, she has been using her creative thinking and surroundings to write poems and short stories.

The most intriguing part of Christy’s written words is her acuteness to dig deep inside her mind, heart and soul from past regressions and abuses. She magnificently takes the readers to her inner most thoughts along with sharing the beauty of nature.

Poem: Seconds within Moments

Life moves fast, doesn’t it? It is a selection of seconds, moments, hours, days, and… You get the point. It is a blur some days and then suddenly a moment comes that makes you go, “Aha, I realize how short life is.” And then you breathe deeply and plant a foot in a world that brings you comfort. For me, today, it is the blogging world.

Thank you to everyone who has emailed me, left a comment on my blog (here or on When Women Inspire), sent me a note on a social media network or contacted me another way. I appreciate you all. I am grateful for you all.
