Sunset is pink
on the belly of the dragon
highlighting his majestic scales
as he emerges
from the murky purple water
of the swamp
until the clouds reshape
and he dissolves
into curling puffs
of smoking breath
all that remain
of his splendor

Word pictures

Cynthia, I love the images you have used to tell your story. It reminded me a little of Pauline Johnson's "The lifting of the Mist". The word pictures are beautiful and evocative.
