The Return Of My Dragon

My Dragon, has been away searching

Flying his mystical universe

Traversing darkness

Between distant stars

Collecting the negative pieces

Of my lost soul

Welding them back together

Using all the inner forces

Of his fiery belly

And melting her throne of thorns

Into a bubbling river of molten swords

Cascading upon our stairway to heaven

Breaking yesteryears curse

Returning her betrayed body

Into my forever dreams

Of a glorious blue yonder

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. It’s 12.50am here in Philadelphia, and I’ve just finished my poem, it’s was inspired by the TV series Game of Thrones, that I was watching for a few weeks here, and also as an addition to my Dragon series of poems . I’m so happy you liked my effort and interpretation ((hugs & kisses))

    1. Haha, thanks Carolyn, it was fun to write another Dragon story/poem. A little bit of nonsense, with a little bit of personal meaning πŸ€”πŸ˜‰β€οΈβ€οΈ

  1. Ivor! It’s almost time for you to fly away home. I assume all has gone well and your heart and soul are refreshed. Sure sounds lie it from that wonderful poem…Did you ride that beautiful dragon up there? Perfect poem and perfect video! I love those guys. (
    Though at the moment I’m a little peeved at the show!) Sounds like you’ve had a real awakening on this trip. well, when your dragon lands be careful not to fall off. The fall isn’t so bad, but it’s that sudden stop that’ll get you every time! ❀

    1. Thank you Calen, I’m leaving on Saturday afternoon, and arrive back in Melbourne on Monday morning 7.30 am. I used the show to enhance my poems message about my stay here in Philadelphia. And yes my landing will be a bit tough, after enjoying such a wonderful time here.


  2. This touched my soul. With the music, the message becomes so clear. I could imagine the dragon soaring, searching….then, as he began his work, the music picked up….”Using the inner forces of his fiery belly…..” He did work and work, fervently, yes! And the ending of the music and the poem matched perfectly……

    Remarkable. πŸ’™
