#AtoZChallenge: Phoenix

18 Apr

P

This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes. Β It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants. Β πŸ™‚

 

Today’s creature is the Phoenix. The term comes from ancient greek mythology. It is a bird that regenerates or is reborn. It is associated with Sun. The lore behind the bird is that it gains a new life from the ashes of its predecessor. Β It is known to have vibrant colors marking its body. The color usually associated with it is purple.

    I’ve always liked the idea of the Pheonix and I like it even better now I know it’s associated with purple! πŸ™‚

      Purple is my favorite color. I loved it when I found out they were associated with the color. πŸ™‚

    The phoenix is a great legend and so useful as imagery as well, because it is so well recognised.

      Yes, they are. If I remember correctly there’s one in the Harry Potter series.

    Purple is the colour of Royalty. Fitting that it belongs to the Phoenix as well! πŸ™‚

    Wonderful creature. Used as the symbol of my gaming guild when it was reborn. Also posted it in A to Z but under Finnish for the constellation Phoenix – http://rolandclarke.com/2014/04/07/f-is-for-feeniks/ -. and of course as Firebird is similar.
