About the poetess

She is on her way to becoming a doctor. She wouldn’t be the first doctor, who also writes poetry. Many doctors wrote poetry and combined this with their daily work in a different world. The world of medicine and healthcare.

Writing for her is sort-off a second nature. It doesn’t only make her happy. It also is very satisfying. Through her poems, she wants to reach out and help others.

On Instagram, she uses the pen name Whimsical Phoenix.

About the poem

What can we tell about this poem? First of all, that it was submitted using our online contact form, but that is not the most important information. As we look at this poem, we see a poetess who did her best to use short sentences. Just like she was highlighting the most important thoughts she has. These thoughts are about how she feels that we need to realize that we all have great power within ourselves. This should be something we should start recognizing and we should embrace this power.

The poem seems to tell her own story, but it will probably something that many of us can relate too. Starting out small, a little girl, and on to a state of warmth and growth.

Fire and ice

Fire and ice

 

I snuffed out my fire
for a while,
building the ice inside-
The frost kept
predators away,
but locked
the little girl,
in a shimmery
Palace of icicles;
I looked out of the window,
My heart always yearning
for the flowers
and the tree
and the birds
and the sun.
I felt a flicker of something,
perhaps my soul
reaching out,
to the warmth of the spring.
I knew then,
it was utter foolishness
to think
the ice could hold me,
For I was elementally
Fire,
and I was made to
blaze and glow.

Prapti Shah / Whimsical Phoenix
