Rebirth of the Internal Phoenix

Some verse from Charles Yallowitz… Rebirth of the internal Phoenix – something many of us experience over the years…got to keep going..

Legends of Windemere

Yahoo Image Search

 It starts with an ember
That one does not snuff out
A glimmer in a dream
A whimsy when bored
A thought beyond the tedium
Signs that something
A spark is stirring once again

Nurturing the spark
Raising it into a flame
Both familiar and foreign
And more fragile than a bubble
You fear its demise
Knowing it happened once before
Murdered by your hand

Many come to kill the flame
No place for such things
Only children indulge
Let the dreams stay in the shadows
Yet you know it must survive
Your final chance
To feel human once again

The flames grow
An inferno driving you ahead
Scaring many
Who have long since lost their dreams
What will you do
Now that a second chance is here
Will it birth a Phoenix?
