The Dragon On The Moon

Signs of a dragon on the moon
the clock has ticked long past noon
The midnight hands now signal doom
and stormy mists rise up in gloom

When I saw you in the sky
millions of souls were about to die
the globe of the world spins by and by
and Earth’s last groan is but a sigh

The dragon hovered above the dome
breathing invisible fire over the City of Rome
and while Neptune’s sea did spit and foam
many sought the safety of the place called home

Is this dragon dream meant to be
on this blue dot floating in cosmic sea
or are they but shadows of possibility
dark things that befall the world needlessly
when Hate replaces Love as the fruit of Life’s tree?

When Dragons Make Love: A Haiku

When dragons make love
thunder roars and lightnings flash
hail stones hail new birth

The Storm

June 10, 2011 at 8:49 pm (Poetry) (, , )

All day the city skies were blue with humidity
then the haze moved in slowly
and then like an invisible dragon materializing
one speck at a time
A dark gray here
A dark gray there
and then the enormous body of the dragon formed
cloud upon cloud upon cloud
and seemed to swallow the tops of the skyscrapers
advancing downwards ever downwards
then it roared
and roared
and… ROARED!
Then it opened its mouth
and shot out a spark of fire
and the 80-year-old tree
in the middle of the park
was no more.
Slain by a fire-breathing dragon.
And the hail stones on the ground
provided cold comfort to the grass.

-A poem written by Christopher Van Helsing
Friday evening, June 10th 2011
in the middle of a thunderstorm.
