Enduring Dragon


Your enduring dragon ,
Invisibly yoked, led 
Thunderheads over
Here in the night.
At first light he flicked
His mighty tail and
Snapped his traces,
Kicked away and sailed
On to other places.

    3. Read the story! Thanks, Emma. I happen to know dragons begin as wood too, and drift from high water into imagination.

    1. Thank you, Ygraine. The photodoodle depicts one of my favorite dragons. You can learn his origin by clicking onto the word, "dragon" in poem's first line. He was born on your side of the Atlantic and surely must return to help the weather sometimes.

  4. I got lost in thought at "invisibly yoked." That's a sign of your magic with words.
    Have a great week, my friend.
