The Phoenix

by Zelizi

Age Group: Adult

Fiery hands gift to me
A sphere
Of clearest crystal
Gazing down within it's now
Smokey....? depths
I see a reflection of me...
But it's not me
Is it me?
Long black hair flows around my face
There's wisdom in my eyes
So beautiful, mysterious
So different from the me I see
Hearing the words
"Do you accept?"
And without a word
I do
Pulling the sphere within
Body shaking as it does
Than everything is frozen
Awed by my snowy hand
Which turns to pure white flame
A body made of flame
Flowing dancing skyward
The jewel now resting in my third eye crown
Will I be the same again?
No, never the same again

Author's Notes: I wrote this several years ago (I have a toddler now, I don't have the chance to write many poems currently.) Posting it here in no way invalidates my copyright and if you wish to use if ask first.

If you do use it or send it out to someone, it does need to have an authorship of "By Sheila K Watkins" attached to it either under the title or at the end of the poem.It also needs to remain intact. If you do plan on doing so though please see the above paragraph.
