What do you See? March 12, 2019 – The Valiant Knight, The Sleeping Dragon.


Image: Alarie Tano

There’s a knight at night upon a bridge

Below sleeps the dreaded dragon.

The knight is on a mission

Being valiant is his goal

To rescue some maiden

To set the world aright.

The dragon will prove his nemesis

It will thwart his every move

Nothing will come easy

It’s the path he has chosen.

As it’s the plight of the dragon

To be life’s obstacle

Growling and roaring;

Showing him the error of his ways.

In the end, the dragon loses,

At least it seems the way of it.

The knight is victorious

He has stories told about him

And becomes the source of legend.

Around him, he is cheered

And while the adulation happens

The dragon goes back to sleeping

His role in this complete.

    Another great story from you Michael, you are talented.

  2. We don’t dread dragons in this corner, we love them

  3. That’s an interesting concept. The dragon sleeps, never vanquished. Is the knight ever victorious?

  4. Lyn says:

    A win-win situation. I’m glad. I’m rather fond of dragons (and knights) 🙂

    Very nice indeed.
