A dragon’s breath

Moonlight Night by Wassily Kandinsky

Moonlight Night by Wassily Kandinsky



grapes of people in the midday heat
seek the vines – of hands and homes
alone together, withered bones.
a strand of hair
plastered to a bayonet
not yet her shoulders slumped
waiting — whitened knuckles
hidden thoughts are burning
afterwards — behind a veil
her lips
has not ceased to quiver
but soon — so very soon
when desert wind has burned her veins
she will release her dragon

I had to write on poem for Claudia’s poem as well.. come and create your own from either Claudia’s or Brian’s poetry. You never know where your muse might take you.

  1. whew…that closure…first made me think of game of thrones…daenerys and her dragons…but releasing her dragons…she is taking it all in now knowing those dragons will reek havoc…

  2. I love the ending:

    when desert wind has burned her veins
    she will release her dragon

    I felt there was a back story to this, smiles ~
