Poem For the Day #1

A Word on the Journey
Alighting from ashes rose the Phoenix, but no one ever speaks of her life as ground soot
No one ever mentions her moment as embers, dimly lit and exhausted, barely breathing
Barely warm
Yet, in her nothingness, she was everything
Gathered in the crevices of the earth that bore of her, in the air that gave her breath, she was in everything
A part of creation, soundlessly  
Gaining momentum, gathering her parts to become whole

by Khadijah Z. Ali-Coleman
