Legend of the Stars

photo:credit shown















In a twinkling sky, a harvest moon shines
far beyond the stars, a dragon takes flight
soaring on ample wings, two hearts align
frequency of love, vibrates in the night

Navigator seeking treasures unknown
wherever you fly she'll be by your side
during darkness, you'll never be alone
shadowing dreams on a mystical ride

Captain, guardian of the dragon lair
with honor, offering his heart and soul
magical dreams, lyrical songs to share
wavering, on the bridge of self control

Seeking a place where they truly belong
falling in the embrace of a lover's song

  2. Love the accompanyment, love the temptation, and the embrace of song.

    1. Brother Ollie, why be ordinary when you can be legendary? Someone once said that to me and your words made me think of it :)

    There is always that feeling of solace and hope yearned for that everyone seeks. It is a question of being terrified when faced with difficulties or satisfied after having found peace.

  16. Maybe this is just a weird interpretation, but it sounds almost like a knight and a dragon fell in love and have run away together.

    1. haha - perhaps a knight guides a dragon and the navigator is a lady who favours the knight?

  20. Oh yes, we believe in dragons. We have to, in a world such as this. What a beautiful journey you painted here.

    What's not beautiful is that we just figured out that somehow we had stopped following you, which is why your posts weren't showing up in our feed and we're always slow to get here. Please don't have the dragon burn us to a crisp - we fixed it (I think!).

    1. Hey Guys,

      We do need to believe in dragons. I am glad you were able to fix the follow thingy. No, worries the dragon will not burn you...

    1. I think one will know as it will feel right, you will know inside and your life will align. Of course, I could be wrong as I am a misfit..

    2. If you're a misfit, I'm a misfit.
