Razar Brothers

Two Razar dragons
Twins born twined
Together
Claws clenched
In a death grip
Locked in terrible
Conflict from
The moment they
Could stumble away
From their rocky nest
They fought and struggled
Determined always
To soar above the other
Mirror images
Mirror tempers
They never gave up
Their quest to best
Their other half
Their anger grew to a fever
Pitch one day black
Black clouds rolled in
One razar started to fly
He looked over his shoulder
And roared and his brother
Knew that he would never
Let his brother fly
Higher into those
Black black clouds
Than he could
So off he went after
His brother
Two bolts of lightening
Streaking into the clouds
Into the booming thunder
Fighting the driving rain
They fly straight up
Past a plane full
Of dazzled passengers
Past a flock of shrieking
Gulls heading to shore
Higher
Higher
Higher
They flew
Until
Oxygen
Became
Thinner
Thinner
The curve of the earth
Blue against
The black of space
Came into view
And one Razar
Could not
Could
Not
Breath
Could
Not
Keep
Up
And
He
Was
Fall-
Ing
Fall-
Ing
The other Razar
Stopped ready
To roar his
Triumph!
His brother was
Growing smaller
In the distance
He saw his brother
Falling away
And his heart
Fell away
So he turned
And plummeted
Back
Making himself
Into an arrow
Faster
Faster
Trying to catch
His falling
Brother
Faster
Faster
Swift
As an arrow
Swift
As a falling
Waterfall
The ground was
Rushing toward
Them
He was rushing toward
His brother
They were coming
Together
Too swiftly
Swiftly he grabs
Blindly for his
Brother
Pulling
Extending his wings
Heaving with all his might
Up
Up
Up up up
And then they are rushing up
Instead of down
The fallen Razar struggles in
His brother’s grasp
He breaks free
And shakes himself
They stop and hover
No struggle, no fierce tug of war
No anger
Just hovering
And then they fly off together
