The Phoenix

The Phoenix

A Poem by Poetic Beauty
"

Written 4-14-2021

"
Within the secret garden
A Phoenix lives contently
Spreading her fiery wings
Raising the body’s temperature
Invoking the heart to sing

She’s nested between the ribs
Quietly curled up sleeping
Scarlet feathers wrap around bones
Entwining a vibrating love
Constantly where the mind roams

Refusing to be silent
Blazing a colorful display
Hues of violet and red glow
Reflecting in the aura’s light
Parading love in a grand show

Always rising from the ashes
When thoughts surface of defeat
Viciously she will battle
For she’s fiercely eternal
Her existence won’t rattle

Soaring high with flaming breath
Devouring all inward doubt
Freely igniting this desire
Fueling pure untouched hope
For she never faulted or tires

The phoenix is strong, durable, lasting inspiring....and will ever be there for you. She exists within you and inspires passion and most of all, hope. I love the phrase: "she's nested between the ribs" She is never quiet.
Lovely poem with vivid images and sensual words, powerful too.
Thanks for sharing,

The phoenix here for me represents an enduring spirit. One who rises above it all when the going gets tough. I enjoyed the colour and energy in your lines PB. Always a pleasure to read your prolific writes. Your muse keeps you busy.

I think the phoenix must be the spirit of life itself. It is always ready to rise from the ashes, despite the fluctuations of the mind. As the last verse observes, "Devouring all inward doubt." Indeed, but we must keep the faith that it's there.

I love your interpretation of this poem. This has a deeper meaning for me but I love this!!
" Viciously she will battle
For she’s fiercely eternal
Her existence won’t rattle."

We all strive to be the phoenix in the midst of difficult life circumstances, good write.

the phoenix rising from the ashes - what an uplifting analogy. i've never been one to have a lot of patience while waiting. as the old saying goes, "good things come to those who wait". this flows so well. determined ending. she sounds like one tough cookie (even a little dangerous) who will get what she wants. very well done ... :)

many have written about the Phoenix but none I remember is original and really special like yours here, I can feel Your essence in this one flowing freely, purely revealing its truth, "For she never faulted or tires" this speaks a lot, it seems as if people misunderstood her, that she paid high prices for things she didn't even do, You had amazing expressions in this one, so well done my friend. Great piece.
