Dedications

SUNBURST

Is dedicated to my sweet, sweet mum Helen Teresa Nelson who is no longer with me, she died when I was two years old of Scarlet Fever. I never knew her but feel I know her through my poetry. Mum you will never be forgotten, you remain in my heart. I love you and this is not just for me but for you too. And also to my father who I never knew either, but there is an indication within these genes that maybe just maybe he was a writer, or connected with the Arts.

FIRE BENEATH THE WINGS

This fire that burns

Flames so hot

That scares me not

The flames so hot

A fire

Burning, scorching, sweltering and searing

Around my body

Powerful

Controlling

Formidable

Feeling

Yet it is not burning

By body

The flames are flickering

Dancing, curling, swirling

Elevating and upraising

The flames

Through mind

Body and soul

A peaceful serenity

The stillness, the quietness and the calmness

All around

Wings unfurled

Raised to the heavens

Golden, golden

Transparency

Transparently

Eyes fixed to the sky

Golden stardust, golden stars

As far as can be seen

Arms outstretched

This body transfixed, mesmerized

Spellbound, hypnotized

I cannot resist, desist

Nor will I resist

This powerful energy

This fire

Does no harm

Here I stand in

Complete

Composure

Poised

Sang-froid

Cool

Calm

Collected

And at peace

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse!

Jade Jez: What a wonderful, immersive book from Eliott McKay. It starts with an air of mystery, introducing main character Michaela, the clumsy teenager.

Morgan-Leigh Nortje: A storyline and plot not unlike something George R R Martin would have produced, only with far less tragedy.

PurpleInkling: Hippocrite is spelt hypocrite.Also it is an awesome story! A good one after so long. I was hoping someone would write a good fanficiton playing off what Ron said at the station.
