The Phoenix in the sky

These days, the sun is playing with clouds. A strong wind high in the atmosphere chases them and beautiful skies appear while the light flows on the reborn forest.

In Greek mythology, a phoenix or phenix (Greek: φοῖνιξ phoinix; Latin: phoenix, phœnix, fenix) is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. According to some sources, the phoenix dies in a show of flames and combustion, although there are other sources that claim that the legendary bird dies and simply decomposes before being born again, like Nature.
