This Week’s Dragon: Glitter

When the Gods tried to divide the light

from the darkness, the light scattered

and fled into shimmering fragments.

Mica, Hematite

Malachite

Each spark dimmed to hide

from the Gods with their cleavers,

their scissors, their claws.

Emerald, Jade,

Peridot

Each followed the darkness

into the soil and burrowed,

becoming one with the Earth.

Diamond, Citrine,

Amethyst

The light intertwined with the darkness,

the darkness intertwined with the light,

giving birth to shimmering veins.

Garnet, Aquamarine,

Moonstone

The veins swirled around metallic ores

feeding them with their brilliance,

embracing the shadows in a maze.

Ruby, Opal,

Turquoise

Serpentine, the veins grew muscular

arms and legs, thick tails, star tipped

claws, throbbing necks, star dust eyes.

Obsidian, Fused quartz,

Limestone

Alive, the dragons rose

shedding glistening scales

onto the sun kissed surface.

you’re

LOVED

uncondishinally

Some are caught in dew drops

in the filaments of fur and feather

in the sweat of hair less apes.

Silica, Iron,

Titanium

Some scales were harvested

into vials to be pour onto the head

of the adult child, child adult

you’re

LOVED

uncondishinally

where they will intertwine

with her black rose root curls

singing glistening the words

you’re

LOVED

uncondishinally

you’re

LOVED

uncondishinally

you’re

LOVED

uncondishinally
