a little phoenix


i feel like a little phoenix with dark wings
learning that it is better to be holy
than beautiful.

and now that i am burning
like a wheat field in the magic hour 
most of them slowly back up.

but some of them are laughing.
some of them catch me in their arms
and throw me towards the sky
saying
go on.
and on.
and on.

i feel like a little phoenix with dark wings.
unrecognizable.
but still the same
as my feathers burn under a sky
close to the Father.

don't cry, dearest one.
separation is the way of things.
for i am a little phoenix now,
with dark wings.
and i need to go on.
and on.
and on.

  1. Just as the phoenix must die to then be reborn, so must we be cremated in refining fire so that we may be reborn in Christ. But that which arises from the ashes is far more beautiful--if not on the outside, then on the inside. The heart of the phoenix remains, and it more glorious than before. :-)

    I love you. <3

    This was mesmerizing. I loved it so much. The pictures and the words. All of it was so overwhelmingly poetic and true. I loved it so much!
