You've got Dragon Feet

Updated on April 20, 2015

I laid in my room and then I

Heard the door knocking rapidly

TAP, TAP ,TAP, making a thunderous

sound, like a dragon. I wondered who could

it be that is knocking, the door so LOUD and endlessly?


I was taken aback and I did not

move, nor answer the door as I

was sure this wasn’t a normal

knock. I pulled my coverlet over

my head to drown out the sound.


I shook like a leaf wondering who this monster could be.

Then! I heard footsteps on the kitchen

floor my heart sunk , because It sounded

just like dragon feet, it came in and I made

sure I kept quiet as can be least

the dragon feet hears me and come

after me.


The foot steps began to dwindle away as though

he/she had moved towards the living room.

Then suddenly I heard heavy dragon feet mounting the stairs.

BRAM! BRAM! BRAM!

The whole house shook like an earth quake.

While I quivered and shivered

downstairs. Afraid that those dragon feet

may come right through the flooring and

land on me.


How scary that would be I listened for more sounds but dragon feet seemed to have

settled somewhere upstairs. I got brave enough and shouted is someone there? Yes a voice replied, who is It I yelled? It’s your uncle my dear.

I was relieved! I let out a SIGH!

and shouted you’ve got dragon

feet…… WHAT!! I said you’ve

got dragon feet you know….

      This poem is so delightfully sweet. I am a dragon admirer from way back when I was a little child and simply love all things mystical and magical. What a treat this was with my morning coffee.

      LOL well i guess the cost for the washing machine alone will really mess up things for you this Christmas ha ha ha. You know the funny thing is we just live in different places and may have different colour and texture of hair but generally the same craziness takes place all around the world. People have similar situations, they think the same things, act crazy like you and I.

      My machine isn't leaking but usually it won't start washing a load until you close down the lid, well since last year December it started washing on its own once you don't get there in time to close down the lid when its finished fullling. LOL so i have to be like a timer marking it or else it will wash without my clothes in it.

      I call them Troll Toes when a person's toes are unclean. But you're right, Troll Toes usually have scaly heels also!

      Haha Lady Fiddler, what a charming and funny hub. Your uncle has dragon feet has he? I thought I had read your work before but for some and have seen your comments on a number of other hubs including my 'Ode to Nellieanna' but when I checked your profile I found that was not the case and I have been missing out on your wonderful writing all this time. So sorry, I obviously had your name mixed up with another. I am now correcting that mistake by reading your hubs and following you. God bless.
