Phoenix

The smoke encircles,
and the vision blurs.
Yet amazingly,in that disconcerting cloud
my confusion dithers…
A truth dawns
from the chasm of immolated consciousness,
like a Phoenix, which rises
from its own ashes.

What exactly would you mean by the term "immolated consciousness" ?
The Phoenix rises again , and in each rediscovery of its own strength from its reincarnation (almost) its finds a new beauty in itself ..
Good work, like always. Missed you :*

@Bikram: It sure is:-)

@Gyanban: Thanks a lot!

@Anshul: sometimes all you need is a reanalysis and rediscovery of self. the situation isn't always bad

@Purba: :-). It is great to see you drop by, always.

@Saru: Thanks dear :-).The journey never stops...

@Aayushi: it is a dead soul, incapable of rising from the old/bad to reach out for the new/better.
I like the way you talk about rediscovery and beauty!
hope to be more regular. Thanks for your words:-)
