Dragon

dragon

 

Hulking black beast

Dominates vulnerable skies

Underbelly aflame

With streaks of hellfire

Crimson to coral

Orange to molten gold

Draconic shapeshifter

Vast and powerful

Stalking the morning horizon

With mythical grandiosity

Bewildering sleepy eyes

On the earth below.

Dawn Chorus – A Haiku

Songbirds chirp and croon,

Gift to greet the breaking dawn,

Bright and joyous tune!
