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.
