My Dragon, Frozen In Time

Today my dragon poem was intirely inspired by a photo from Derrick Knight’s fabulous site.. With Derrick’s kind permission, his frozen dragon photo is featured above. You may visit his corresponding post via clicking on this link >>

My Dragon, Frozen In Time

My Dragon has been treated harshly

For his mischievous nine crimes

He was cruelly chained in poison ivy

And mystically frozen in time

I am allowed to ship him back home

Encased in a huge wooden box

In a straw-lined crate he looked like a giant gnome

We set sail around Cape Horn towards the land of shamrocks

I am hoping a return to his homeland

Might snap my Dragon out of his ice-age state

There atop the cliffs of the Isle of Aran

With the roaring Atlantic winds to thaw his scaly breastplate

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. “My Dragon” has been a loyal beast of mine for many years, and we have seen off unjust persecutions before… but with the help of his Den’s Irish Faeries, I am sure he will be able thaw out, and maybe you’ll see us flying over the Slovankian mountians soon..๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒ

    1. Really he’s a friendly big fella, but he tends to fire up at the sight lying politicians, so he’s been very fiery lately, and was wrongly persecuted for iginiting the rioting crowd. ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ’š
