Dragon Wings

I’m not a particularly good poet … but I’ve always had a soft spot for this poem that I wrote a few years ago. Meagan and her dragon Aymon (from my Daughter of Ravenswood series) hadn’t climbed from my imagination yet. But I’m pretty sure Aymon came from the same well of inspiration as this lovely creature 🙂

Aymon Path Unchosen Daughter of Ravenswood
An artist’s impression of Aymon

With dragon wings wrapped around me
shadows disappear
I sleep in a cloud of innocence
there is nothing here to fear
The sun rises and his scales sparkle
midnight blue and pearly grey
around me his wings are the softest silk
he defends me and keeps demons at bay
We fly higher and higher
the world below becomes small
playing peek a boo with wispy clouds
far far away from the urban sprawl
We skim over treetops and a glistening lake
my hands touch the icy water
on this perfect morning with my dragon
I am mother nature’s daughter
We land in a meadow of wildflowers
surrounded by majestic trees
as I make a pretty posy
his wings make a gentle breeze
Foes may come and go
he will burn them all to ashes
or flay them with his spiked curly tail
they will flee in fear from any clashes
Climbing again into a perfect blue sky
nestled and secure
I know my dragon will protect me
come what may his love is pure
