Rocking the Galaxies...


















Sometimes the mind wanders
to those special places inside
in a world of silence she ponders
soaring with him, enjoying the ride

every story written has a beginning
time changes, there are no minutes
for the dragon's song has no ending
infinite boundaries, sky has no limits

fiery beast moves to a steady rhythm
heaven sighs with deep metal riffs
together they venture on a mission
soaring eastern skies, hovering cliffs

traveling through new dimensions
shifting melodies, vibrations of light
jolts of energy awaken their senses
flames ignite,  burning through night

crossing the astral plane of existence
roaring dragon sings haunting songs
conquering g- forces little resistance
amidst the vast cosmos he belongs

visions appear within crystal eyes
dreams unfold "dragon of the stars"
adventure awaits in distant skies
rocking the galaxy, seductive guitars

within a warm secret cavern they land
discovering magical treasures inside
two minds slowly begin to understand
the wondrous joy in a sapphire tide

  3. A fantastic write about a celestial journey. I loved the dragon's song, by the "dragon of the skies". This poem lifts the reader up to soar like the characters in the poem through the starry skies. Loved it. One of your best, I think!

  12. This was simply fantastic. What a great ode to Alex and his story. I don't think I want to hear a dragon's song up close - too fiery - but it sounds great as told from a distance.

    Thanks for the starry, starry wandering and wondering. Duly noted the spaced out reference to Alex who is, in actuality, a clone :)
