Susan Hawthorne #283 dragons

all around the world they roamed
they flew they were honoured
not monstrous just very large
keeping a dragon happy
does not need a maiden sacrifice
that came much later
women conversed with dragons
just as they fed milk to snakes
snakes and dragons and birds
are found depicted on walls
like the vultures of Çatalhüyük
dragons see far and wide
some live in volcanic craters
sending up plumes of ash and smoke
if you are kind to dragons
earth will be kind to us

  1. I'm enjoying how it's women who speak to dragons. Thanks for this one, thought provoking!
