here there be dragons

we be 
-lieve in them, of course 
as we have seen them with
our own eyes. 

their embered breath,
spiking the sky. 

their spangled skin, 
tangled in scars. 

our delight to find 
they’re on our side,
joining our nightly fire
-dance, and teaching 



PAD, day 27.

    “spiking the sky” … This makes me think of the sky as a bowl of sorbet punch at prom. 🙂

    “Imagine …” is the new middle school buzz word. I’d explain the usage and function, but it wouldn’t come across nearly as fun(ny) as it is.

Use your words.
