Dragon Night Dreaming
by Juliette Bentley
Ghost clouds haunt the incandescent Mullumbimby moon
hiding her vacant beauty in swathes of mystic magic.
Whispers carried on zephyr breezes
tell the tale of Dragon Night Dreaming
where wizards ride on emerald dragon tails,
and whip the storms of the unbelieving,
and pour the balm of dreamers dreaming
where magic spells-weave webs of wonder,
upon scarred, scaled livery, their spurs, intent.
The ability to dive across the jagged sky,
wands conducting, lives unravelling,
gracing gracious dreams to adults who only remember
as they sleep,
Fire-breath, the scorching brand upon the land below
so seemingly untouched,
will leave them haunted by scudding dragon cloud skies
across the face of a benign moon's kiss.
And innocent children laugh with glee
as they point at dragons flying free...
