Election Day Ashes

The phoenix rose out of her ashes,
raising her wings proudly
while examining the turbulence,
muttering not a sound…
The air uncannily sat silent,
next directive, weary with the world.
Phoenix nodded approvingly, eyed
air, while water waited . . .
Transparency, rippled out water.
Of course replied Phoenix.
Earth’s sandstorm wrapped around Phoenix, but
Phoenix determined for
Earth’s guidance opened their arena, and
Earth silenced her sandstorm.
Time, be the guardian of our time . . .
Phoenix’s brow grimaced,
from her heavy tasks–prepared–took flight,
hoping for compassion.
