The Phoenix

Phoenix Rising

Awakening

She turned at the cry
of a crow taking wing;
the mind recoiled with 
tides of ancestral memory

There was weightlessness,
then a rising, altering, shifting;
She was not conscious for the Fall, 
but blazed alive inside the Inferno.

And within that labyrinth, 
she found Herself
as a Phoenix Reborn.
