The Dead Winter Mountain Murders
by Mark Sutton

They say that Stephen Hartley is one of the United Kingdom's worst serial killers... perhaps... but he's definitely the most nerdy...

soft flickering flames

stirring thoughts primordial

mesmerizing glow


potent force subdued

dance of light as cinders glow

memories unbound


consume to create

fearsome gift of warmth and sight

purify fouled worlds


phoenix rise renewed

shake off suffocating ash

winged flight sets fresh course

Great write.
Reviewed by John Flanagan
i'm sitting here watching the last glows
that set off this musing and am as primordial
as what's consumed, and from the dying fire
that has purified 'fouled worlds' (i love how you put that)
the new phoenix rises and 'sets fresh course'..
when this level of thought and intelligence and craft with words
combine the work is a sheer pleasure for the reader.
This is very fine indeed, Carolyn.

Nothing like a campfire. Just please always make sure it is out when you leave.

There is so much to think about within your verses, Carolyn; and I love the spirit of renewal that is conveyed. Love and peace,

Reviewed by Mr. Ed
All quite powerful. I love the mesmerizing glow of cinders in a campfire in the forest.
