The Rukesayer and the Dragon Path ~ Dragon Path 1/3

All her life music from the Deep Forest has found her
Telling her there is more to Life
Than is provided for in the philosophies of her Mom and Dad

Songs of sirens in deep blue waters
Dragon-folk calling her . . .

And then
under a sky the color of regret
Chygon the Traveler
Teller of Tales appeared at her home hearth

Her father and mother spoke with laughter
of their times

The Far Places can only be achieved via Dragon Path
he told her
Now she walks this Dark, dank Dragon Path

She doesn’t like this Dark Path
Doesn’t like the Wind
Doesn’t like the Sky

But if she lingers
Drags her feet
The Traveler might leave her
And somehow that is worse than being left at home

Home . . . its just a memory to her now
And . . . she’s no baby . . .
Well . . .

All her life music from the Deep Forest has found her
Telling her there is more to Life
Than is provided for in the philosophies of her Mom and Dad

She grew up a healer of the ill and sad
But there were so many
And they just kept coming

Then he appeared like a teacher
Like a lover
And without asking he opened the East gate and
allowed her follow on the Dragon Path

She doesn’t like this Dark Path
Doesn’t like the Wind
Doesn’t like the Sky

He seldom speaks
yet she knows his thoughts
Hasn’t touched her
yet he knows her heart

But by the fire-light his eyes dance
As he speaks of the Far Places
Where she’ll stand as a hero
Exchanging wisdom with strange and unfamiliar creatures

This the Path
Where Beauty met the Beast
A Path ruled by Magic
Her soul hungers for a future somewhere down the Dragon Path

She doesn’t like this Dark Path
and yet she walks it
