aubade with a broken smile 

morning breaks us open, and we ponder dragon-breath clouds and all that crimson fire.  we’ve already held these miles between our teeth and found them too salty, too muddled-much for day’s embrace.  the sky’s a quiet place to trace our last good -byes.  ::Linda’s got a great word … Continue reading

Happily, Ever 

They are still unshod, by god-mother. (These wayward Wildling rebel-rogue princesses.)  Barefoot loose and fancy only in their own daisy-chained glee. Nobody’s  waiting to be saved. No-body’s even shaved in weeks and weeks. It’s  all grown wild, like weedsand flowers, ivy. Stars. Some days, they … Continue reading

Snap Dragons 

We tried giving them buttons,but they melted those in no time. The zippers were a disaster, as they already had enough teeth. Buckles were troubleand lace ties were – no surprise – not much help, either. The brooches looked ridiculous. Pins seemed promising until they didn’t. And so just like thatwe allowed them to snap. … Continue reading

conspiring with dragons 

forgive us, but we’ve become members with their embers. we are also in cahoots with the grass -roots efforts of faeries, and flowers. we now spend hoursand hours scheming with that sky and her conniving moon.  all this cons-piracy has caused us to paint our sails with … Continue reading

we wee dragons 

we are the smallish ones, of tiny scales and silver tails sealedin scarlet slip of sky.  we drink from butter-cups and saucer moonto soothe our embered tongues. we sing in hum -mingbird thrum. we wee beasties swallow fallen stars to stoke our shine. and we find  … Continue reading

RoofDragon

Watch her land and stand watch. Catch her spare spangled scales as they fall. Hear her talons scritch, the roared hitch in her song.  She’ll cover you in veiny wingsthe smoky ink of starry breaththe embered scent of sky. She’ll warm you, warn you. Teach you … Continue reading

The Significance of Sizeable Dragons 

They’re vast in their spangled skin, gargantuan , stupendous.  Tremendous, reallyhow they fly,become the sky as they blot the sun.  We’ve got a huge crush on the blue one; if you’re patient at sunrise, she sings.  The green giant’s got a secret stash of tinytreasured things.  The puce one’s … Continue reading

wild girls breathe like origami dragons 

we are spun -sugar star sisters perched on delicate tongues,  violet ones savored in tang of rain. we swallow scribble. we dribble-drizzle rasp -berry paint over syllable and stanza, stained. we’ve got ink between our teeth and hiccup’d giggle-hopeinside our veins. our pen-chants for fancy are … Continue reading

Phoenix Rising 

Surprising, really how fast she finds her wings, cobbles broken things back together  and sets her self (less shattered) back to sun.  She molds a smile from emberedash and tears,  mosaics splintered years into a dragon-armored kite and calls herself wild, child of moon and other borrowed … Continue reading
