Nuxy in Moonlight ~ Chyfrin the Wizard, Nuxy the Dragon

Nuxy in Moonlight

Opalescent scales in shades of night-sky
she stands on the lip of the cliff
under an argent moon the size of a planet
lending a light . . .
painting the valley below in a pale pewter hue

I stand silent under a foreign sky
where colored stars sit like jewels
on fields of black velvet

She turns
her eyes flash in the wane light
Turns further to look across the valley
I swear a ghost smile plays across her aspect
the way she moves under the Arch of Ever

I shiver
Not from the cold

The wind courses up from the valley
She lifts a slender claw
Opens her claw allowing the wind through her talons

I watch as she plays the wind like a pet
but she does not restrain it
it runs free to re-join again the ocean of sky

She leans back
her eyes are filled with the estuary
the infinite sea above the world
turning and intertwining
ebbing and flowing

I feel the undulating wind of her thoughts
brush past my ear
past my eye

she reaches. . .
