From the Ashes

I sleep. Enfolded in peace. The agony and pain Disappear: The burning, the sorrow, the flame Enfolded in peace. I wake. Entranced by life. Remembering fire Inside; Death before sleep, and now Entranced by life. I rise. Enraptured by flight. The strength within Burning. Spreading my wings, I soar Enraptured by flight.
