The Doombringer and the Savior

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Underneath the dirt she sleeps Inside the place where earth does weep A watery zone that is her bed With fish she dreams and rests her head There is a time, not near nor far A foot on land and she will mar What will the innocents choose to do When she splits the world in twain and two She was born a princess, but a sad fate befell her; her entire life has so far been spent asleep and floating in a lake. The legend says that she will one day wake up and find her way to the surface. Unfortunatly, when that happens, her world will be destroyed. Thus she is the Doombringer. But she is also the only one who can save the people, even if it's from herself. Ergo, she is the Savior as well. This is quite possibly the only productive thing I've ever done in Government class. Good Lord that class is boring. Poem's mine, so no touchy.

Protecting Her Young

A set of three haiku. A gold dragon must protect her babies from a silver dragon who's come to devour them. I don't mention that bit in the haiku, but now I'm thinking about adding it in.

Yet another haiku-format thingy... I do too much of those.This was written as part of an exercise I started at the Elfwood forums to help writers and artists keep their skills sharp and break through blocks. It hasn't caught on yet, but then again, the forums aren't very populated. In any case, you can find that thread and the premise of this exercise here.Since the list has changed since I last rolled, this was written with this image and the word 'dragon' for inspiration. You can probably tell I wasn't being very creative at the moment of writing, given the inspirations, but oh well.
