in tumble arms of coppered bronze

with fists of pawing, sweeping gold…

Turn me inside

turn me all about.

I decided to write a bit of a nonsense poem. It’s really difficult to remember how to spell catch when your writing each letter on a different line…

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

    Carol, I appreciate the artistry of the dragon and the breakdown of words in this poem. The drawing reminds me of the Dragon Kin series by G.A. Aiken :). Question though, what’s with the hanging letter ‘e’ and if I were to comment on something that was a bit off, it’d be the structure of:
    “You
    autumn hurricane”

    where instead I’d like it to be similar to the “We, the fallen.” So it’d be:

    “You, autumn hurricane” etc. But alas, tis your poem. Thank you for the post!

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
