Out of the Ashes

Out of the ashes

A phoenix will rise

The rubble that lies before us

Is a blessing in disguise

We had been too proud

To see our looming fate

Now we know the truth

When it’s too late

We are the masters of our destiny

But Nature is the mother of all

It is by her will we stand

And by her hand, we fall

There’s hope while we’re breathing

We can build our lives again

And while we’re believing

Then our lives are not in vain!

The Tower of Babel – A poem

We’re terrified of being broken

We’re frightened of the truths unspoken

Our fears underneath it all

We are destined to fall

Look at that tower, standing tall

We forget that pride comes before a fall

And in our pride, we are blind to it all

When we finally see the end, we stall

Maybe it won’t happen, perhaps the end isn’t nigh

As the tower crumbles from on high

A lightning bolt strikes the steeple

And debris falls among the people

Better Together – A Poem

Photo by Elle Hughes from Pexels

Sometimes, we can’t get by on our own

Success may not depend on you alone

Sometimes you may need others to give you a hand

To gain a new perspective from the one you planned

Many hands are better than two

Many eyes see from other points of view

Many minds bring a wealth of imagination

Many passionate hearts fuel a conflagration

We are better off together than we are alone

When I’m with you, it feels like home

Written by Miss Wren

Where Two Winds Blow

The west wind beckons me

To a place, I’ve never been before

The east wind’s siren song

Lures me to some distant shore

I stand at the crossroads of destiny

Unsure of which path to take

Both ways represent a mystery

But it’s a choice that I must make

Whichever way I go, I can’t go back

Forever lost to the mists of time

I bow my head and pray to God

Before I cross the line!

Written by Miss Wren

Castle of the Mind

I’ve built a fort in my mind

Where I’m the queen of my fate

I’ve left all my worries behind

My mind and body integrate


Never before have I felt this power

That I wield with my own two hands

I feel the same strength in the smallest flower

Forged in a will that not many understand


Power is more than the physical

And the intention is more than the mind

The soul lies between the two, so mystical

This inner strength in me is all three combined

Written by Miss Wren

Pisces – A poem

Image by the author

Two fish swim in a fast-flowing stream

Pisces, you yearn to escape into dreams

You’re intuitive, creative and a sensitive soul

You’re not interested in power or control

You’re ruled by Neptune, God of the sea

The deep blue-green planet fits you perfectly

From the turquoise shores of far-flung places

To the still pools of a desert oasis

A true romantic, you see the beauty in the smallest things

In a spring breeze, a pastel sunset or butterfly wings

Just don’t get too lost in your idea of fantasy

For there is beauty in our reality
