Kassandra - what a powerful poem! Here are some links to poems I posted in the Paws and reflect forum!Sensations
For some reason I can't find Phoenix there anymore so here it is.
Phoenix burning bright.
You came from the dust,
and there you must return.
Fly sparking across the night
blazing a trail to heaven.
Heaven's gate shall open to your light
Stay with me in spirit
as you leave this earthly plane
lest I mourn over your ashes.
Too short your time spent with me
bound to earth with pain.
I understand your need to fly.
I watch your transfiguration
from gravity weighted soul to glory
and I wish to soar away with you.
