Chinese Dragon

A mountain of jade walking with bold eyes as the yin and yang of perfect pearl and polished onyx. His tail, a stirring of green wind cuddling the smallest wildflower, and striking ancient trees so high. The moon is his grand mirror where he studies his own angular profile and sometimes he carefully hides his wings. When he sleeps upon untouched land in the middle of a tall forested creek, he only looks like a bud upon the earth. Today, he stretches out his entire body, resembling a full orchestra on the world, ready to find souls awake or asleep. The dragon is a large emerald book strolling the woods with his shinning scales are the individual chapters that change. The perfect day consists of both heavy rain, slow sunsets and lighting bolts that society cannot notice, not even a dulcet muse. For centuries, time has been his growing necklace, while civilization permeates as his heavy musk perfume upon his dragon being. He enjoys to interweave the ropes of the human brain by embarking inspirational thoughts which answers the soul's fears. The dragon is green mist among those who dare to create their own castles and allow their minds to be waves of the sea.
