The Height of Haiku Challenge, Day 26 - Phoenix

Welcome to Day 26 of The Height of Haiku Challenge, where your challenge is to write 30 haiku in 30 days. The prompt today is PHOENIX suggested by Tweety.

Here's mine:


Mythical or not
Spontaneous combustion
Flight of the Phoenix


  1. Just read Judith Westerfield's contribution today (#10) on spontaneous combustion!! Seems strange but true!!

  2. When I was in grade school, my teacher read a story about a Phoenix and its rise from the ashes...it fascinated me. I like your haiku a lot...spontaneous combustion...it is a strange truth

  3. Great Haiku Andy.
    Loved the idea of 'spontaneous combustion'

  4. Eternal inspiration ... never giving up and rising above adversity to renew!! Nicely done!

  5. Wasn't it spontaneous resurrection, not spontaneous combustion? I'm just askin'...

    Can you see a phoenix here or here?

  6. Hi MMT, the flight (in the third line) is the resurrection. Resurrection is always conditional, in this case upon Spontaneous combustion. Mythical or not...

  7. I like it, Andy. You present the information and leave it to us to decide whether or not we believe the stories...
