Autumn and Dragon Haiku, by Jess at Dragonsinn


Some dragon-themed poems and haiku written about a decade ago, by Jess @


  • Autumn
  • 3 Haiku: Battle, Ravenous Appetite, Red Dragon
  • Sleeping Dragon

It’s a rainy day at my current Florida location, which made me think of nature and the four seasons. Hence the placement of “Autumn” as the first poem in this post.

Red and golden leaves
Swirl, caught in a dance as the
Dragon unfurls. An
essence of light and candor,
unbound by earthen
ashes as he rises to
the topmost branches
before he leaves and
all the trees will be

Sky-high, blood and bone
The shred of wings – a fallen
Scream that marks the end.

Ravenous Appetite

A dragon, unfed,
Thrashing about in a rot
Iron cage. Unleashed.

Red Dragon

Hue of life’s blood; the
Passion and fury beneath
Like molten lava.

Sleeping Dragon

To an eyeless mind –
a pile of dusty bones
To human carrion
a rotting carcass
A figure cast in stone
to desensitised bodies
A whimsical relic
to lost, wearied souls.
Lying undisturbed –
as peoples toss and turn
Soundly in wait
as cities crumble
The dragon sleeps
while worlds wage war
And awakes refreshed
when strife and pestilence

are no more.
