Poetry Anthologia Week Six – Celebration

2016 –  by Brittania Goffy

You could say that

we shouldn’t dance now

and you’d be right, hey,

not for a long time


But I don’t care now

It’s over, over,


and for the next day,

we are gonna par-tay


celebrate that we’re not dead

celebrate ’cause Beatles live

celebrate that there’s no plauge

celebrate cause we’re alive

Celebration – by Carol Forrester


We sang until there were no words left

and I could feel your pulse beneath my skin

thumping like a drum beat

marching us home from battle.

On wobbly legs we stumbled into ourselves,

collapsing into the grey light of morning

with laughter still on our lips

and tasting the tequila on the back of our throats.

We won’t remember what we did,

but we will remember the joy.

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.

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