Reborn from Ashes

The ray from the sky

Spotlights on the petal,

Laying on the ground,

Scented with petrichor.

The petal represents me.

My soul has been reborn.

Graced by the spirit around

This illustrious planet Earth.

I arose from the fire’s ashes

Of pain, misery, abuse, sorrow.

From my ancestors’ spilled blood

Over many generations on Earth.

Despite all of this darkness,

Their presence lives in me.

They communicate with me.

Through the sun,

Through the rain,

Through the petal,

Through the petrichor.

Thank you, progenitors,

For rekindling me from

This burnt Earth, into

A beautiful, unique petal.
