Incubation of three days. Isolation percolates. The roar
builds up in the cat’s legendary dreams, sweet.
Fire-breathing dragon flies above the score
while the incessant cotton candy zephyr treats.
Panther’s Seusslike spots entertain the crowd,
spellbinding in optical illusionary sport.
His shadow eclipses — an enormous grinding shroud.
Villagers consumed by sugar-plumness of consort.
Flames like incense impress the dragon cloud;
flotsam with hunger pangs. The craning beast endowed
by kinseeds with ever-increasing scent, a snare.
Seeks surrogate cave to birth the next nightmare.
Julia Ward’s Panther (Legendary Creature)
