From tiny beginnings to oceans I discovered the world in words

27 days into June

moorland inferno
peat fires travel underground
surging seering heat
Saddleworth blazes
consuming all in it’s path
summer here at last
gone even farther
memories and wonderings
Keith Bennett still lost
Elaine Patricia Morris (c) 2018

note….Keith Bennett, the last of the moors murders children whose remains have still not been found.

  1. Yesterday I saw a post on blazing Saddleworth Moor in Facebook. Quite scary. Reference to Keith Bennett is so sad.

  2. So sad, Saddleworth in the news again for such devastation, bringing the murders back to mind.

  3. You’ve reminded me of this: Centralia is a borough and near-ghost town in Columbia County, Pennsylvania, United States. Its population has dwindled from more than 1,000 residents in 1980 to 63 by 1990, to only seven in 2013—a result of the coal mine fire which has been burning beneath the borough since 1962.

    On a different note, our paper just solved a 25 year old cold case… So perhaps there is still hope to find those lost bones?
