My Dragon, The Revival

My harpooned Dragon’s, fallen and out of breath.

Gazing around, pleading, near death.

The slayers spear, protrudes from his scaly vest.

And I quietly hear his soulful pounding chest.

Quickly, I plunge my sword, cutting shard.

Removing the spears horrid barb.

My Dragon exhales a fearsome howl.

Eyes bulging, tears flowing down his jowl.

In agony, thrashing his spiky green tail.

Then slowly abating, like a windless sail.

Is he dying, lying there loudly groaning.

Nostrils snorting, neither afire nor smoking.

Suddenly, his left wing begins flapping.

And my Dragon’s head rises, stretching, arching.

Green horns twitching, like a mythical serpentine.

Yellow eyes glowing, like magical sunshine.

My Dragon’s revived.

And ready to skydive.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

    1. Thanks Arbie, and the crowd roared with approval for the friendly big green Dragon. Haha, something different from Ivor, and as Joe Cocker sings “With A Little Help From My Friends” in the background here, definitely a smily poet tonight.


      1. I would love to Ivor, but Iยดm a childrenbookillustrator, Iยดm not sure if my drawings can fit to your poetries? My style is not very fantasy itยดs….you can have a look at instagram, there are two dragons from me…of course I can change a little bit, but I think I will never be a fantasyartist for tragical stories….


      2. Oh Anie, you underestimate yourself, if I happen to write a couple more, I’d like it so very much if could do a drawing for me. Anyhow, I’ve yet to write any more stories …. I’ll let you know if it happens…


      3. Sadly she doesn’t have her own blog but letยดs me post some of her art from time to time on mine. Iยดm going to show her your poems later today at Sunday lunch but since she speaks only German I will have to make an awful job at translating them for her (I apologize for slaughtering your dragon after all if only with my poor translation ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).
