She soars, her feathers dark
Against the night sky she flies-
Unseen by any eye
Darkness her companion,
Her’s is a long shadowed flight.

Starlight behind her, the moon’s light to guide her
Effortlessly through the constellations she flows.
And no one ever knows.

Yet, with morn’s coming dawn
The grey of the sky-
Her presence cannot deny.
Shake her feathers,
Raise her head-
Released from endless ebony skies

Feathers alight-
With sunshine’s bright flame-
Glowing bright yellow and red,
She is raised,
Herself again

Soaring ever on,
Effortlessly through the bright sunlit sky
Wings proud and high-
Feathers alight from the fires burning inside

So longer will she hide-
No longer the darkness seek.

Amazing poem!  I love the beautiful imagery you incorporated into your poem.  My only criticism is about your title: it's spelled 'Phoenix', not 'Pheonix.'
