Forgotten Stars by Elena Botts
This collection of poetry by Botts is a remarkable work of words. Forgotten Stars is one of those books of emotions and prose that paint across the page. I enjoyed reading this collection, and entering the mind of this prolific poetess. Such a wonderful read. My favorite was "And the lights go out in the middle of the night," which starts with "don't. everyone is. i think gone even without a word. i live in a ghost town wandering through memory for rainy eternity. a dream that girl led for a briefest spell but all is done now, one drenching anonymous day and spirits reclaim it all." I liked this so much, I read many of the poems twice. I look forward to reading more poetry by this author. This book is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
