Phoenix Wings Ablaze - Poem by Onyi Ogwumike

Phoenix wings ablaze,
Shining crimson inferno on
Contrast to the dark midnight silk of the sky.
Heat licking up my thighs sinking its fangs into my side.
Pulling down while I soar.
Or attempt.
Biting into my crumbling slabs of ebony.
My ashes haunt my
burnt umber embers of my pure
pearls of sight hanging above.

    Life Born In Flame

    fire pain of birth renewal
    fire of the soul which burns to live
    fire life elixir born in ashes
