Urnscent – Of Simurgh and Ascent

She is of eternal flames.
She is of sheer nobility.
She is the essence of all existence and what is beyond.
She is Simurgh, the resplendent manifestation of what we call life.

“Of Simurgh and Ascent” is loosely based on “The Conference of the Birds”, the grandiose masterpiece of the late Sufi poet, Attar of Nishapur (c. 1145 – c. 1221).
