Dragon Breathes Life - Burns Strife..



in an  August  sky  the winds  shift 
revealing  your  spirit   to  me
dark  unruly  clouds  dissipate   
tears softly  fall  into  the  sea 

take  me  to   that   enchanted  land 
star  beads laced  across  the  sky 
destiny  in  the hands of  fate 
how  many  cliff  tops must we fly 

searching  deep  golden orbs of  light 
finding  comfort  within  his wings
breathless ,  wandering  poet  sighs
dragon heart  awakens  and  sings

composing  romantic  ballads
living  in  a  magical  realm 
truth  flapping in a cosmic sea
warrior spirit at the helm 
  
in  an  August sky the winds shift 
revealing  my spirit  to you
dark  unruly clouds  dissipate  
a dragon's tale comes into view



Author's note:  I thought I would share
a picture of my winnings. So cool to have
my autographed copy of "Dragon of the Stars"
by Alex J Cavanaugh. Many of you may know
him as he has a strong presence in the blog
sphere and hosts the Insecure Writer's Support
Group. 

Any suggestions on new and interesting
music to buy?

The dragon inspired me to write this poem...
Thanks for visiting me and allowing me to share
my poem and thoughts. Have a lovely day!

  20. I would totally love to have dragons. Riding a dragon would be very cool, seeing the world from its back. Alex is a great writer.We have made the turn in our year - the winds will def be changing.

    New music - hmm. Need to think on that. I have been tripping back through some old stuff here of late.
