The Phoenix In The Desert Rising From Its Ashes

The Phoenix it is said lives 500 years
Knowing when its time to die
The bird returns to its place of birth
A nesting grounds in Arabia
Before its demise
It builds a nest of frankincense and myrrh
When the time is come
It enters and dies
Bursting into flames.
From its ashes
A new phoenix arises.

The Phoenix burst into flames
From its ashes arose
Andrea Angelicus.

    500 years wow. Enjoyed the Phoenix poem. Would have to search on Andrea Angelicus.

    Phoenix: part of a new medical spa treatment? It used to be ‘vampire facials’. But I guess celebrities will go to any lengths to stay young. I think the preservatives alone will keep them alive for another 450 years. ‘Oh look, PayLo flaunts bikini bod on her 400th birthday.’

      Yes, I can see them using the Phoenix as part of a new medical spa treatment for the residents of Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

        Let’s hope they don’t botch it. 🔥

        “This is 9-1-1. What’s your emergency please?”.

        “Fire! Fire! Help! Help!”.

        PayLo is on Twitter talking about how to do a ponytail. This is a woman in her 50s. Wow. Her legs are insured for $2billion so I’m sure she can use the payout to buy a brand new body.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Most definitely.

    Love the art and the story Chris. It has that mysterious eastern mythology feel brought back to modern times. I look forward to reading about the new Phoenix, which is an Easyern symbol of Yin energy.
