Twittering Tales #144 – 9 July 2019


I have also incorporated a few word prompts:

Behold the Dragon! – A poem

See the flow of smoke that rises,

rises up from down below

See the ash and hear the bellowing

as the crashing begins to grow.

See the wall of flames that flicker,

a firewall all red a-glow.

Behold the Dragon has awakened

from its sleepy slumberland grotto.

And with fear, I stand a trembling

no greater terror that I could know,

then the Dragon, huge and scary,

smiles at me and says “Hello.

After all my fear and worrying,

he seems a friendly, fine fellow.

So, don’t judge a Dragon by its appearance,

that’s the moral and the motto.
