Mighty Dragon Flies



Two Brothers by Elenor Abbott




















facing  elements  mighty  dragon flies
embracing  earth , wind , water  & fire 
unleashing his spirit in spacious skies

mysteries of  life captured in  his eyes 
singing ancient songs, his heart inspire
facing elements mighty dragon flies

filling water basins below,  heaven  cries
earthly  dreams  arousing  inner  desire 
unleashing his spirit in spacious skies

soaring  new dimensions counter clockwise
courageous creature , winds lift him higher 
facing elements mighty dragon flies

traveling  lands  where  legends  never die 
diamond  studded stars, echoes of a choir 
unleashing his spirit  in spacious skies

golden rays of  light in morning  sunrise   
beating purple heart , mysteries  transpire
facing  elements  mighty dragon flies
unleashing his spirit in spacious skies

  8. I love the ancient songs, the flying dragon, the soaring in new dimensions. This is a poem that lifts the reader up into those spacious skies for a quick little zip into the mystical. Very cool.

  10. A very interesting poem. Mainly, I like the form you use here, as it lends to your subject. Repeating certain lines, for me, has a legend-like quality.

  12. I'll pass on the water. The ancient songs I want to sing are purely Earth Wind and Fire.

    (Oh, and the poem is fantastic as always)

    1. haha - Ok, leaving the water out just for you. A little Earth Wind and Fire is still a good.

  13. Dragon flies ... dragonflies.... Very interesting to me, as I work with the elements and with dragon energy – and also because my late husband and I arranged that his signal to me after he died would be via dragonflies; so I read your refrain lines with a double meaning.

    1. Hi Rosemary, that is a cool, so you receive messages in the form of dragon flies - dragonflies. Perhaps, there is a message for you today transmitted via my poem.

  14. Elation of freedom in the spacious skies is a privilege that many can only dream of.It is a cruel world imposed on the weak

    1. Ah Hank that is true, but one can still hold on to hopes and dreams. Seeking justice in a world filled with injustice is difficult.

  19. Love this. The form lends itself to the mystical feel of your words. The poem feels like an escape from daily reality into a magical place where dragons fly. And I, for one, would like flying with the dragon. Lovely write Truedessa.
