434 An Introduction to the Silver Dragonness [10 December 2001]

I’m human
though my dreams are filled with wings
silver ones to be exact
wings that I can only see
when I turn my head in my dream
they are mine
glorious wings that lift me above
so I can soar through the clouds
I am as large as a 777
but much more beautiful
I am a dragon
with a gleaming metallic hide
that shimmers like the sea at noon
I am free
a queen of the skies
a gift to the earth
happiness is like flying
the air beneath your feet exhilarating
when you come to the ground
your toes barely touch it
dust rising around you
from the beating of your glorious wings
my liberation
in my mind I am the dragonness
a fierce bitch of a creature
but fiercely protective of those
who have earned my friendship and trust
I have faith in the skies
faith in my life
faith in me
all people need something to believe in
and so they turn to a god, goddess
or whatever suits them
I believe in myself
and that life will continue on
no matter how long I live
on this glorious planet we call earth
so once again I leap into the air
catching a strong wind
I spread my wings
and I fly
