"Waking Up" by Rochelle Leya Watts

If you go with the bestial idea of dragons(versus the intelligent magic user idea), then they'd probably hibernate. This is an ice dragon waking up from its seasonal slumber. I tried to tie some of the lines together with alliteration and assonance, as well as a repeating phrase.

Waking Up

As if it were fire
Ice crackles and snaps
And then bursts away in a silvery rain

Little bits still cling
To the leathery wings
As if they were decorated in diamonds
Reflecting blue

Muscles flex
And the head moves free
Rolling steam coming from the nostrils
Making the chamber misty

As if undressing
It steps free its legs
From the thick boots of ice

A hungry grumble as
It stretches and yawns
Showing a tongue of red
Against the many hues of blue

Muscles flex
The wings create a wind
That leaves the dragon slightly damp
As it departs the cold cave

That was great! I had to stop reading mid poem to close my eyes and imagine what this would look like, before finishing the rest of it. I really enjoyed the image you created.

:-) Rochelle Leya Watts replies: "Wow. Thanks; I appreciate the comment. Imagery is definetly what I focus on. "

wow, wonderful use of language. You are a master. (or is it mistress? no that doesn't sound right either) you rock.

:-) Rochelle Leya Watts replies: "That is quite a compliment coming from a bard such as yourself. 2"
