A Dragon’s Heart – edit

Dragon Series No.2

A Dragon’s Heart
From the Book of Dragons
Found in a Buddhist Monastery dating to 1400 AD

A dragon’s heart
Is the largest
In the world
To listen to
Its beat
An honor

Kneel and listen

Do you hear
War coming in its beat?
Do not move
Listen
Do you hear
The sound of clouds forming
Against its wings?

Quiet

Breathe in
Breathe out

Feel the hot breath
Do you hear
Rivers coursing
Fish jumping?

Once more listen
In complete stillness

War drums
In that beat
Do not despair

Watch the dragon rise
To meet the armies
