A dragon mourns the death of another dragon.

A Dragon’s Demise

Amethyst eyes

reflected the fire

flowing from the mouth

that fueled the death pyre


Scales sharp as razors

taut as a sheath

covered powerful muscle

that rippled beneath


Green, gold and amber

in firelight glowed

with proud wings unfurled

the head remained bowed


Homage was paid

an ancient life gone

the sentinel remained

'til the coming of dawn

The images you have chosen emphasize the event that you are describing via your verses. Well done, Melissa. Love and best wishes,

Reviewed by Felix Perry 5/29/2009
Brief but capturing so much in those lines, from the mythical/mystical power of the dragon (of which I always wear one on a chain around my neck) to the sadness of a noble death watched over by one. Very well done Melissa,
