Phoenix of Hope

Amid the white patches of that mauve gracious dusk, I bask in an awaited dawn since I found myself from a lost world to win over my innermost conflicts at last, I remember the spirit that rejoiced my tattered hopes... ~~~~~~My Phoenix spirit guides me in~~~~~ That mighty river~~ which flowed through rapids and ravines and streams that mingled into it or crossed a path just once, I remember the light which kept me sane... The incessant cycle~~ of nights and days, inconspicuous, anticipated, enchanting I remember hushed whispers transforming into soothing lullabies.. That steady rock~~ which stands for ages facing all the odds to wait for a pleasant morning, I remember how it revived the withering moss... That drop of rain~~ which poured to rejuvenate life in grief, I remember how it soaked parched Earth in colors... That winter breeze~~ accompanied by frost, undesired yet gleaming with delight, I remember the wings that made it soar in the sky.. That lost alley in the woods~~ which guided voyagers even when nobody liked to walk upon it, I remember the fire that guided a laid path... That oak tree~~ which grew from a sapling when storms tried to uproot it, I remember the courage that kept it upright... The warrior who never gave up~~ despite the battles lost in the journey, I remember the ashes that built her again... The woman who found a life~~ growing from a naive girl who learnt from her mistakes, I remember the dreams that revealed the mystery of love....
A light of faith, a ray of hope, A drop of elixir, a soothing breeze The fire that builds from ashes to rebirth over lands to fly upon and rise It guides me, lights me, loves me While I rise to revive my hopes I see a Phoenix engulfing my spirit.
