A Poem by Marina N. Lovrić

A Phoenix' song by the legend makes one forget about his homeland

I will wake up one day
after I hear the Phoenix' song ;
I will wake up and forget
where I belong

Oh , sing to me , Phoenix
and make me forget ,
but make me remember
the reasons I left

Beneath the arcane , azure sky ,
underneath the ice and frost ,
across frozen seas there lies
the genesis long ago I lost

Of all the lore I keep ,
my memories to fade ; they seem ,
secretly gathering in oblivion deep
with the long-lost homeland I dream

You returned... good seeing you again.

Returning from the "ashes" - resurrection... a world and place to strive toward.

This is mystical in all it's glory. It feels like the hymn of rebirth. Great imagery.
