The Breath of the Dragons.........

perhaps it was the raven that moaned
along the shore

or the ghosts of my past showing face
but once more

and they ...on the other hand taught
us well.......minus the morality

just another link on circular chains
a highway fatality.....


the sounds of memory like an old car
dieing away on the misty pike

and yet as each one passes another arrives
different colors yet so alike

memories left along the way florish
in the overgrown ditches

It all seems so far away now but
for triggered thoughts by evil witches

but we're left speechless not one
fitting word in our minds

as I stare across the ages
we'll see what eternity finds

yet I do hear an echo
of unforgettably familiar voices

and think of all the trials
ahh but so many choices

This dragon enjoyed this so I thought I'd leave a bit of my breathe on this screen too. Perhaps it will just turn to ashes, but it doesn't matter because ashes will remain ashes and "we'll see what eternity finds".

Those choices make the rest of one's life happy or not. I love the poem ahorseback.

Oh Ahorseback, this is so complex, poetry perfection

"and they ...on the other hand taught

us well.......minus the morality"

Yes, yes, I know, so much fermenting in those "overgrown ditches,"

So many thoughts, memories, interconnecting with cars on highways, coming going.....magical writing from the mind of a master. I connect to this and love your words.

Yes, life is a highway. Many lanes to choose, it all flows by in beautiful technicolor. Even if the road at first looks dark..when you look back, you wil be amazed that it was actually lit. Good poem, as usual.
