Dragon herder

blue dragonfly

Filigree wings of elegant wrought iron
Body armor aggrandized with cobalt blue cloisonné
A tail forged into a wrathful cudgel

Bestride my dragon, I blaze into bloody battle
Raining down retribution and righteousness
Upon the heads of my foes, beating them into submission

Sprites and fae my warriors,
Milk thistles and rose thorns my swords
My shield a shimmering anomiidae

Beating back the advancing horde
Crossing the enemy flank with a blazing enfilade
Scattered opposing soldiers flee from the breach

In victory, I rise upon hot thermals
Soaring above the forests and streams
Surveying my kingdom far below

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.
