I write what I feel…

Dragons and Monsters

Dragons and Monsters

Flickering flames, tongues of fire,
Greedily licking ever higher
Consuming everything in their path
To the sound of breaking glass.

Dragons on the road to war,
Marching onward ever more,
Gaining strength with all they eat,
Crumbling ruins left behind.

The silhouettes of puny men
Can be seen now and again
Overcome by choking smoke
Trying to hunt the dragons down.

The battle seems unfairly fought,
The fire appears too great a force
Until a vast man-made machine
Drowns the lot in its foul spume.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!
