Nita McGrew, Poet
"It is like looking through a window into your soul!" -B. Smith
"You have this uncanny ability to paint surreal images with words." -Y. Carver
There is a phoenix rising in my heart
from the smoke and ashes
of what once was barely smoldering,
now burns with an extreme heat of passion.
She soars to heights that I thought
She rises to the summit
of my being.
I feel her tiny beating heart within my own,
racing at a fevered pace,
fluttering and syncronizing
with my breath.
Quickened wings sending her on her ascent
into the innermost region of my spirit
And finally in that same fevered fury,
there is release
there is freedom
there is survival
there is resurrection
there is love.
