THE PEPPERMAN AND THE IVORY HORNED DRAGONS

I OPENED A DOOR
SAW A DRAGON FLY BY.
SO BIG AND SO CLOSE
IT BLOCKED OUT THE SKY.

EACH FLAP OF IT'S WINGS
CREATED A BREEZE.
A MAGNIFICENT CREATURE
THAT SOARED WITH SUCH EASE.

FROM OUT OF NOWHERE
A SECOND APPEARED.
BLOCKED OUT THE SUN
AS IT STARTED TO NEAR.

THEY CIRCLED THE CANYON,
WITH A TARGET IN SIGHT,
YET CONTINUED TO CIRCLE
FROM DAY INTO NIGHT.

I WASN'T SURE IF THE
DRAGONS WERE DANCING,
OR, JUST A FORM
OF DRAGONS ROMANCING.

MY CURIOSITY 
WAS BEING TESTED.
IS THIS THE CANYON
WHERE DRAGONS NESTED.

THE MOON AND STARS
PROVIDED LIGHT.
ABOVE THE CANYON
THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT.

THE AIR WAS WARM
THROUGH OUT THE NIGHT.
AND THERE I SAT
TILL MORNING LIGHT

AT THE DAWN 
OF MORNING LIGHT.
THE MAGNIFICENT CREATURES
TOOK TO FLIGHT.

I WOULD'NT BELIEVE
A DRAGONS SIZE.
IF I DIDN'T SEE IT
WITH MY OWN TWO EYES.

PEACEFUL CREATURES
OR SO IT SEEMED.
IS HOW THEY LIVE
INSIDE MY DREAM.
