Poetry Friday: The Dragon

(Eastern Washington fires, Dia Calhoun)

The Dragon

His smokey exhale
billows blackness; smoldering
red eyes burn our breath.

Because a haiku tends to deal with nature, the subject feels so very real! Great job!

I love the way you bring the imagery full circle from the dragon's breath to ours... hmm - not sure I'd liek to get that close to a dragon :-)
