Lunar Dragon

Art and words by Sarah Potter

“Dragoness”

The Dragon flies upon the Wind,
Her Scales and Wings a-glitter.
The Moonlight shines as bright as Day
And the North Star is a-rising.
The Wolves are howling with the Wind,
Their Pack-Song carrying far.
And in the Fields, the Horses hear,
Then race to watch the Moon.
The Deer awake and race the Wind
To see the Dragon’s flight.
The Bear comes out from in her Cave,
Her Eyes watching the Sky.
Phoenix leave their hidden Nests
To watch the great Beast flying.
The Horned-Horse leaves the Misted Field
To watch the Elder’s Wings.
The Sea-Born Horse leaves River Depths
To watch the Dragon Queen.
The Fae-Folk leave the Faerie Ring ,
Come out from Hill and Dale,
And watch the Moon-Queen flying overhead.
The Gilded Deer with Gold-Lit Pelts
Turn Eyes upon the Moon.
A Three-Tailed Fox with Snow-Born Fur
Leaves her misted Den.
The Owl Flies out of a Tree
Not hunting, merely Watching.
Rabbit comes out of Darkened Hole
To know the Night-Born Flier.
And Winged-Cat watches and she Purrs,
For she has a Dragon’s might!

Is this garish? Boy, is it ever! But then, it’s Rumpelstiltskin, and that makes everything all right.
