Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

What could be better than having a dear friend announce that she is CANCER FREE? Absolutely nothing! Ionia, you have made my day and I am totally thankful for YOU today!

Ionia, the Phoenix

Like a Phoenix she has risen,
The conqueror, the victor.
A mythical creature up from the ashes
Ionia, the defeater.

A renewal of body and spirit,
She kicked cancer to the curb.
A chance for rebirth,
Ionia, the long-lived bird.

She vanquished the demons as
She wears jewels and pearls.
The Phoenix has risen,
Ionia, the goddess of squirrels.

Love you, friend. I just wish I could have written something more worthy of such wonderful news.

  1. Beautiful poem that really captures her. Mostly because of the squirrels.

  2. I love squirrels. They won’t let Ionia down.

  3. Just popping back in to say than you for the reblog, your poem was one of two that inspired me to write my tribute for Ionia – yours is so lovely, so heartfelt, truly inspirational! šŸ™‚
