Dragon’s Fire

A tale of a Dragon, written by me for a contest in Allpoetry.com.

See that crack down on the ground ?
Quick – retreat – and don’t make a sound!
For underneath your step and leap,
a dragon lies – he’s fast asleep.

A rumble of traffic overhead
as he lies sleeping in his bed
dreaming of days long ago
flying over mountains covered in snow

Chasing the longboats of Viking hordes
taking trophies of shields and swords
with rumble of lorries – sometimes he wakes
and creates what the scholars calls – an earth quake

so careful where you step,

on that crack in the tiles
the dragons fire’s dormant…

(at least for a while!)
