Writing Prompt June 22, 2012

In order to rise
From its own ashes
A phoenix

Writing Prompt

What would we find in the ashes of your phoenix?  What has been reborn out of those ashes?  

My Reflective Reponse:
I'm enamored with the idea of the phoenix.  To me this mythological creature is a symbol of hope.  I have often felt like I was stuck in the ashes, especially during rough times the I've faced.  I'm so busy trying to avoid the landmines life has left me that I lose sight of the phoenix waiting to emerge-to be reborn.  2006-2012 have been filled with life altering events-many of them bad-death, divorce, betrayal.  It was my longest journey in the ashes, but here it is 2012 and I made it.  My  phoenixes that emerged have names...Irene, Samuel, and Lillian Marcella.
