The Height of Haiku Challenge Day 26
Prompt : Phoenix
For my Elephant and Ant Haiku,
I have picked up the meaning of Phoenix as :
A person or thing of unsurpassed excellence or beauty; a paragon.
Elephant is struck
Reading, doesn't know meaning
Of phoenix, asks Ant..
Happy Ant tells him;
For her Elephant has always
Been a true phoenix..
Here the meaning taken is: A bird in Egyptian mythology
that lived in the desert for 500 years and then consumed itself by fire,
later to rise renewed from its ashes.
Else, stories of man's rise from
Ashes won't exist..
