    "Re: Foremost Spiritual Writer" Thank you Daveda for the beautifully written poem as a tribute to my book. You have great expression within and your words did make me sincerely appreciative that you read my book. I hope that many poets will buy this as a guide to learning new formats in poetry. I tried to make this collection one that had many subjects as well as many variaties of formats. God bless Christina

    "“To God Give The Glory”: Such an Awesome Book of Praises Rendering from Yesterday, Today and Forever!" This is another excellent volume of poetry by Christiana R. Jussaume. As always she renders compliment upon her family members. One must read this exceptional volume of poetry, To God Give The Glory, to appreciate its essence. The poem “On Our Anniversary,” is dedicated to her husband. The line “Let us grow like the sun for eternity,” is really a touching. Additionally, the poem Replenish Our Love, is equally poignant. Words such as, “My sweet dearest, come to me now, and feel my heart, as it does thump,” manifest their purest love. She penned a special sonnet to her husband, known as a “Shadow Sonnet.” The first and last words of each line are the same. This raises the stakes of sonnets to another level; one Shakespeare would have probably not comprehended. Words such as, “Cuddle with me dancing, sweetly cuddle/dance to our favorite song, slowly dancing//, tell a... More > wonderful story of such a loving relationship with vivid images. She pens a special poem entitled “A Daughter’s Grief,” uplifting her dad. She writes this special line, “You my parents, I do adore, wait at gates door, wait at gates door.” In this piece she expresses her grief regarding her parents not physically being here. With love in her heart for her country and president, she expresses jubilation for the president as he takes the oath of office. She also prays for the economy to be fixed and the anticipated changes to come. She prays for God’s guidance of the president. She renders credit on her publisher and friend, Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson, a spiritually uplifting writer of many religious books. Additionally, she gives credit to her special friend Daveda, in the poem entitled Magical Forest Part 1, written in the poetic form named after her. The book lists approximately 70 different poetic forms, which makes it very interesting. The diversity of poetic lines, images, techniques, and creativity are very inspiring to meditate on and to explore. Unlike other poets who stick to just one form or style of poetry writing, Christina is truly gifted in spanning the spectrum of poetry with her imaginative writing style. Her creative spirit in writing Acrostic poetry, and her use of the quatrain stanzas, is very uplifting. She has a special insight regarding the use of rhyming patterns and inventing her own creative rhyming style of rhymes with a unique blending of words. One of my favorite books in the Bible is the book of Psalms. She has used the Monchielle form to rephrase several of the Psalms in her own creative style and fashion. These are very remarkably crafted, and ring with such an adorable inspiration. The pictures and motifs she uses throughout the volume are just awesome. As the saying goes, “A picture tells 1,000 words.” Likewise, the ones in this volume render the same message. This volume also has a glossary section, which explains the forms of all the poems listed in quite an understandable manner. This makes the reader able to comprehend the poems more clearly, instead of wondering about a certain definition. Christiana starts the book with the poem “To God Give The Glory,” written in the Hourglass format. Finally, she ends the volume with the poem “The Greatest Birth,” written in the Lucky Leaf form. Contrastingly, both poems have a direct impact and corresponding impact on each other, with God giving birth to life covered by a leaf, and with all glory being rendered onto Him for His creation.
