She is a seer, a visionary, a mystic.She is eerily cabalistic, a strangely esoteric embodiment of the ethereal, this Delphic Oracle of Oracles who is possessed with a knowledge of past, present and future that defies "reason" (as she so aptly identifies the problem with mankind)." "You will read it once, read it twice and keep on re-reading it over and over again. Just when you think you have figured out the message tucked neatly inside of the bottle, even after breaking it open and ripping the message from within, you will soon discover that you never comprehended the cipher as intended. No, you must make a decision to turn off the light, open the door and walk inside without expectation and let the voices speak to you. Only they can give you the key to the secrets inside." William Avery She is the Mystress

Jan 11, 2016http://www.aeafanzine.blogspot.com/ MYSTIC VERSES The first verse published in this collection, entitled Alive, sets the tone for the others to follow by establishing the idea that salvation of the soul begins on earth rather than false promises of heaven from self-professed, self-serving “prophets” (we all know there are plenty of them). The second thing that struck me was its blend of mysticism and humanism, a motif running concurrently through this tome. You receive impressions of nature’s dual role as benign and merciless, as if it is transformed into a living, breathing entity. You receive images of those who were killed in the name of religion, tainting snow with innocent blood and returning from beyond to seek vengeance. M Teresa Clayton’s verse is incisive and grows progressively darker, filling your mind with images of lost souls and forgotten songs from ages past; she somewhat reminds me of Tom Warrior’s (Celtic Frost) lyrics, only the landscapes she illustrates are much... More > vaster. She credits her writings as being inspired by what she refers to as “intradminensional beings” that communicate with her while presenting her with information about us as individuals and us as a species. She calls these beings “the Otheres” and dedicates her book exclusively to them. In Mystic Verses we’re reminded that many landscapes exist in the imagination, regardless how much we close our eyes to them. I would say those inner landscapes, for all their darkness, are far preferable to the reality the general public is expected to accept. We are invited into the endless, boundless realm of Clayton’s “forgotten knowing”, to explore it freely and without reservation, so we might recognize something within and come away a little more enlightened than we were beforehand. With all the verses gathered for your consumption, you have too many opportunities for exploration to not be drawn in. Complementing them are photos taken by Debbie Dixon of Dragon Wolf Productions presenting some visuals to accompany her writing. -Dave Wolff< Less
Nov 14, 2015"These days, there haven't been many poets that compare to the greats of the past, there doesn't seem to be anything to differentiate them, make any one stand out from the rest, there is nothing uniquely impressive about today's poets. Is it any wonder that the art of poetry has lost its appeal? Then comes a woman who commands the verses to speak unimaginable things, and she has created new ways to write them. This is a whole other genre of poetry and that might be due to her muses. She hears the voices of spirits who bring her messages from the beyond. She then sits in a trance-like state and begins to compose verses containing the information entrusted to her. Maybe poetry readings are not obsolete after all. Maybe the art of writing verses hasn't been lost; it has been changed! It has evolved and I like it." - Gregory Allen Helms, reviewer for The Vine. Two words: Salmon Rushdie - (No one is hunting her down for blasphemy against their personal god. Let's hope no... More > one feels the need. Her work is beyond the reaches of most minds, though the poetry is beautifully written in complex rhyme schemes and worthy of the reading on those criteria alone. Deciphering the message requires dedication, concentration, and the willingness to commit to the work. - Esther Rivke Soronsohn Mystic Verses. I had no idea what that meant until I was introduced to Ms. Clayton at a reading in St. Louis. The concept of a mystic verse sounds like something you'd find in a fortune teller's back room. I was a bit taken with her. She is easy to speak with and full of bizarre, if not insane, thoughts that she is quite comfortable discussing in any group setting. Now, I am a devotee of this strange woman with her inner-voices. She seems as sane as anyone else I've ever met and to be honest, she seems to be teaching us all something new about ourselves and this world we call home. The poetry in her book is artistry. Yes, I'm an old man and I've read the best of them, but right now, I am sitting in the presence of a woman who will be celebrated. Maybe she knows this, maybe she has no idea what will come of her and her writings. I think I'll gamble that she knows it. She is humble but that does not mean she is not aware. - Terrence Donovan Marcway, Antique Book Collector< Less
