The Element of Fire: Phoenix [5 min free write]

Here we go again

out of the ashes

dust yourself off

unfurl your feathers

and fly

 

The pyre - hot and ready

an unbelievable home for

birth

egg

germination

 

Is the pyre the killer, the loss, or

the opportunity?

 

There seems to be

no hope

there are

only flames

and smoke

Rising into the sky

burning and stinging our eyes.

 

but then as the sparks and crackling

slow, the warm glow 

the hot heart of the 

wood is exposed

and a faint shadow

appears

not deceiving

just clear and becoming

clearer
