Phoenix Rising


Phoenix Rising

I look up at the stars.
Bright, familiar patterns
Winking at the moon.

Now I wonder, dream.
My brother. Is he watching
The same stars as me?

A bond is forming.
Hands stretched across the ocean.
Fingertips touching.

We share so much pain
But the joy of connecting
Washes it away.

Magical brother.
You make my cares disappear.
Peaceful calm restored.

You rise from the flames.
New hope adorns your person.
Tears fall, healing wounds.

Wings outstretched you fly.
Free to soar unchained. Released.
Old thoughts left behind.

No illusions here.
Weave your magic. Spread your love.
No tricks, just wand of joy.

You are not alone.
A ring of angel sisters
Encircle you now.

To comfort and pray.
To share in your resurgence.
To guide and support.

Brother, we are here.
We love you and watch you grow
Stronger, happier.

Take good care big broโ€™.
You were lost but are now found.
Donโ€™t leave us again.

The bindings of love
Entwine our dear hearts with yours.
May peace be with you.

My brother.

  1. I am deeply touched by what you have written. Tears fall…. tears of sadness for the pain our brother has suffered and tears of joy for the hope that is springing up in all our hearts as he rises up from the ashes of despair.

  2. Thank you-it is something which has been brewing for a while but yesterday I put pen to paper whilst on the train and that’s what appeared. It says what I wanted to say so I am pleased with the end result. I hope Phoenix likes it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I am deeply moved my sisters. The healing tears are flowing as I reply. I cannot thank you enough for being the angels surrounding me. I know you are at my side constantly. You surround me, confort me and keep me from falling.

    I look to the day when I may help you and others so well.

    Sincerely thank you.

    – Phoenix

    p.s. Sorry for being a bit behind on my replies. I’m still trying to catch up. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Phoenix-please don’t apologise you have nothing to be sorry about. I have found daily blogging quite draining and I too am trying to catch up with everyone. I have spent too much time on writing my Blog and not enough reading those of my friends. Time for a change this week ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Agreed. It’s fortunate that we all know we’re together despite the distances in time and around the globe. The rest is a formality. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you for understanding.

  6. Hi again Caroline,

    Hope you don’t mind but I’ve borrowed the graphic you used here to represent Phoenix as a Gravatar. If it’s something I shouldn’t copy, please let me know.


    – Phoenix!

  7. Hi Phoenix- I used it from Google images but give credit. I think you’re ok as long as you are using it for your own benefit and not for commercial gain, as a rule of thumb. It’s gorgeous isn’t it? ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Thanks again Caroline. It has come to mean much to me since you posted it. I’ll use it until someone says not to. ๐Ÿ™‚

    – Phoenix
