The Phoenix – Nicholas Gagnier


Take the Phoenix out of final forms, fire from wings worn all our lives

And all the ashes one survives is just dust on which we write a story of

Failure, death and occasionally


a spiritual quest in

which we are the quarry,

everlasting warnings

reincarnation is

not without its flames.

Nicholas Gagnier is the author of LEONARD THE LIAR, FOUNDING FATHERS and the creator of Free Verse Revolution. 

Nicholas is also a mental health advocate, author of several poetry books and an avid reader. 

You can read more of his work at Blank Paper Press and Free Verse Revolution.
