Fear Not

Fear, like the dragon,

Guards the entrance to beyond,

Where magic awaits.

I got really excited when I saw the Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge: Dragon & Magic, mainly because I wanted to do another stained glass art piece with a dragon.

I think this one is not really glass though, it’s more like metal… but that kind of goes along with the haiku. The door beyond fear is not glass, it’s probably more like heavy duty steel.

Anyway, I’m a bit tired tonight (this morning), so I’m cutting things short. I’m trying to do “one thing a day”—a creation, some kind of writing, or whatever else it might be—so I’ve been staying up WAY too late to accomplish my goal.

So… that’s about all for now. I made it another day, yahoo…

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed my dragon and haiku!


My Mind’s Eye

From where I was standing,

I saw beauty everywhere.

The gulls appeared to know me,

As if they recognized my stare.

My mind’s eye scanned the horizon,

Rousing dull shades into vibrant hues,

Melancholy grays,

Into sapphire blues.

Moving quickly,

I traversed the mud and the trash.

I saw snowflakes and crystals,

As I watched the waves crash.

The storm the eve before,

Left puddles, wind, and freezing air…

But on the coast that morning,

Not a surfer,

Nor I,

Had a single care.
