A Phoenix is rising.
A Phoenix is rising in the the flames of the candles
I’ve lit, through the silent retreats of my life.
Growing a deepening spirit, a new sense of myself.
The two-winged bird is here,
Its quiet center truth,
Its balanced wings balancing courage,
Balancing the ups and the downs,
The good and the bad,
The judge, the protector,
Joy and sadness,
Creating dreams of a true life,
Written by Karen Sheahan
October 1989 and I am still dreaming.
