keeping watch for dragons #5– river dragon

with 8 comments

It’s like getting an old song stuck in your head… I am now seeing dragons… everywhere.

Yesturday, as I crossed the bridge on the way to my work, I saw the piers of the old bridge and their reflections in the water.  To me they were the protruding plates along the spine of a river dragon, resting in the water.

Have you seen any dragons lately?

eight bevelled piers

(only remains of the old bridge)

idle in still water, reflections rigid

plates along the spine of a spent dragon

lolling on his side

taking a break in the river
