The Dragon Haunting the Mist

The dragon
haunting the mist,
just beyond
that gray silk,
slips as a cat
between unseen trees,
and the lazy stones.

I tend to believe,
despite its grandeur,
it wonders what manner
of beast am I,
lurking in this place,
through the tall grass
still wet with morning,
humming strange songs.
As I, it trembles.

S. Thomas Summers poems are inspired by daydreams, gazing through a window, stepping through a wood. I believe there’s a place where these dreams gently grace reality, making the impossible quite possible, the intangible very tangible. I do my best to visit that place as often as I can.
