Dragon Lore

audible only to dragon

too soon to tell what was heard

since being tethered in the atmosphere

waiting

to be cut loose that windy day

what flight

their songs fall below

let us know         how real

the dragons are

Cloth

I gave my sewing machines away. Now there is only cloth here; corduroy, tweeds, raw silks and purple satin. Someday the needle will rise and fall again, guiding thread into fabric, connecting pieces together with looping threads.

creating stitches 
holding tight this creation
magnificent cloth

Child sacrifice poor Andromeda tied

her mother watching in the distance

starry night hope to be saved

Cassiopeia bright thru my window

I am both daughter and mother

Daughter bound from ignorance

to monsters in the heavens

break free before the dawn

light comes
