have you ever
played with the dragons?–
one changed me, for a while
and we spun arabesques
in the wind, lighting
the sky in our fiery course.

ah–have you ever
played with the dragons?  i
did; it ruined
my life.  i’ve spent it dreaming,
trying vaguely to recreate
those half-remembered flights.


This is dedicated to Ursula K. Le Guin and her Earthsea series. I believe she appreciated the poem–however, it may well have been that I asked for no judgment nor help in publication.  She merely sent me what I requested, so that I have a signed First Edition for the fourth novel in the series.


I’ve nothing to say about the possible reality in some ways, for me.

      Thank you. There are definitely at least 2 levels to this one.
