1. Draco Bizarro

He was mighty strong and fierce
yet he had a gentle heart.
Deep dark pools of passion reflected from his eyes.
Telling tales from his barren soul
the living breathing source of his very existence.
He lived on the edge as if there was no tomorrow,
afraid of life yet more afraid not to live to its fullest.
Raw emotions giving way to heartfelt feelings,
soft delicate words once whispered upon her ear.
Telling of his adoration, desire and lust.
This mighty Dragon baring his soul, giving his all, his complete self.
Trusting in love letting down all his guards and defenses,
she takes his hopes, dreams and compassion and crushes them in a
moments breath with one flap of her wings.
Leaving this majestic being alone within himself.
His heart crying out for love, dying with every beat.
This Draco Bizarro was once mighty, strong and fierce.
But, he had a gentle heart……

2. Encounter

Like fresh salty foam of deep blue ocean
She laid worshiping the brave, bright sun
Heat engulfing all her body, skin smoothed in gorgeous tan
Glowing beautiful and lovely upon her tropical throne.

He saw her from miles up high, gazing her shadow so bright
Invading her private moments, with nature her time of love
he descended through the clouds, savoring her rising lust
soaring down upon her, this winged creature from above.

Now aware of his rare flight, danger in the horizon,
she couldn’t withdraw her eyes from such powerful a presence
body tensed and loins protected, with fear turning to emotions
both minds united in time, space, and in bare essense.

Mighty shadow blocks the sun; potent fear, love, confusion
Gripping stare now deep inside her, wonder of eyes beyond
Pierce her heart with keen desire, doubt, all in fusion
Instant hate turning to passion, the great hunger for the unknown.

Downard swoop gathers her soul, heart, mind and all her limbs
Nestling her close to his heart, sweetly sharing her own beat
Soaring off to golden places, high and far on dragon’s wings
Love making in the horizon, between clouds of intense heat.

Settling down behind the sun, a new world has begun
This galient creature and his lovely mate..the mother of all.

3. Dragon Days

there’s a creature in a cave unknown
sleeping in a sleep that looks quite deep
in comes a man
sword up drawn and ready to slay.
A piece falls beneath his feet
the creature awakes with its mighty wings aspread
with a mighty roar and a burst of flame the man falls to death
the creature walks out of the cave
its mighty wings aspread
it soars into the air on the hunt
longing for the fresh taste of mutton
the prey is spotted and the hunger is growing
the shepard is gone and the the creature strikes
the flock is gone and the shepard is back
the creature flies and is gone
which a dragon calls a day
is this.

4. Dragon of the hunted

I am a dragon of might and power.
I’ve watched you grow through every hour.
Now you seek to kill me,
you just won’t leave me be.

Yes there are times I’d like to die,
but then I think,
never again would I fly.
Someday when you are old,
and you are not so bold.
by me you shall die,
and on the ground you will lie.

5. Dragon Friendship

On wings of thunder
Honor bound
Search me out, I drum the sound
Twist and turn in the night
Dragon come, my guiding light.
Protector, guardian, friend not foe
Come to me, see my sigil glow.
Strong and true this friendship charm
I beckon thee, keep me from harm.
Around and about your magick swirls
Come to me
Your wings unfurled.

6. A Dragon’s Life, A Dragon’s Blessing

The wind, the sky
The moon, the stars
Have you and the wind been one?
Have you flown high in the sky?
Have you landed to the moon?
Have you been to the North Star?
I have

They sparkle, they wait
They live, they love
Do they catch your eye and sparkle?
Do they wait on shelves to be read?
Do you watch them live, grow, and die?
Do you love them with all your heart?
I do

In body, in heart
In control, in emotion
Feel your body’s muscles, and its roar.
Feel your heart beat as you soar and dive.
Feel the control to work the magic.
Feel the emotion, love and anger.
I feel

From family, from friends
From courage, from loyalty
Will you be there when your family calls?
Will you say to your friends, “I got your back”?
Will you stand on courage against all odds?
Will you be loyal when others will not?
I will

Author’s Comments: These are simple poems that I am using in a book I’m writing for my daughter. I would like to share them with the world. I don’t know if they are good enough, but they are for my family and it is for them that I write.

7. All I have to Offer

With fang, talon and flame,
These are what I have to

With hide strong as steel
With wings strong to sail
These are what I have to

With an eye to see all
With a mind to know all
With an attitude to kill all
These are what I have to

With a heart to handle the speed
With a heart to win a hard fight
With a heart to watch you live
With a heart to morn your death
These are all I have to
