As Phoenix From Smoldering Ashes Rise As Phoenix from smoldering ashes rise truth burns away false tales in its wake to birth dreams and glory in dawn's surprise within slow cast fog Love's touch not forsake! Yet sorrow may bless, clearer bells to ring musical tunes holy angels sing. As Phoenix calls to broken world gone mad when new life in majestic rivers swell gone were fantasies we dreamers once had that wisdom bade us, not ever dare tell! Yet sorrow may bless, clearer bells to ring musical tunes holy angels sing. As Phoenix soars in clouds of gold bright rays memories race beyond that purple veil nothing whispers softly and nothing stays in that dying dust, all goes straight to hell! Yet sorrow may bless, clearer bells to ring musical tunes holy angels sing. As Phoenix flight dares flying alone calls crash from magnificent mountain peaks reminding humans are mere flesh and bones and tainted are vessels from which all speak! Yet sorrow may bless, clearer bells to ring musical tunes holy angels sing. Robert J. Lindley, 4-20- 2020 Rhyme, ( From Ash And Fiery Red Flame Rose A Mighty Beast )

Thank you my friend. To open ones eyes one must first know that willing blindness exists. This world constantly works to keep that knowledge away from its victims. A great pity that...

Bob, you always leave me pondering and thinking about your striking imagery that carries your writing. Love the repeating, contrasting refrain and the image of the Phoenix - always rising from ashes and sorrow to new life just ahead of us.

Thank you my friend. Life gives and it takes. We should understand this world is dark and tis' best we see and appreciate the gifts given far more than we lament the taking.. God bless..
