Ashes of the Poetical Phoenix

 Published in the Anthology Wollondilly Ink brought out by Wollondilly Branch of the Fellowship of Australian Writers in 2012

Out of the ashes of writers block
the poetical creature is born

Sun illuminating the feathers
through the smoky haze

Finding warmth in ideas
left in the embers of the last

With eyes reflecting the glow
it continues to finish the poem

In darkness it begins to find
inspiration burning out

Spreading its wings
fanning the remnants of the last
consuming its life in flames

Dying within the pages
Sparking the rebirth of another
