On the Wings of a Dragon
Have you ever dreamed of flying
Free in the blue sky up high?
To feel the cold wind blowing
In your face and in your eyes?
We all had that dream in our lives
And imagined the feeling
Of waiting to see the sunrise
And bathe in the rays so healing.
But have you dreamed of flying
On the back of a dragon?
To feel their body gliding
As you pass over mountains?
It’s difficult to depict,
But I’ll try in these verses
To describe something perfect,
Unlike any heard stories.
With unique skills and great ease
The dragon slowly takes off
Taming the winds to a breeze
With no risk of you falling off.
The ground gets smaller and smaller
As you two are gaining height,
Thus you start an adventure
Under the sun warm and bright.
Passing calm and blue waters
While seeing a reflection;
In it you see two brothers
One of them showing protection.
Looking close, you see two as one,
Not just a man and a dragon;
Two souls joined under the sun,
Knowing this is no fiction.
Heading for the tall mountain

Never Truly Gone
Long ago we’ve witnessed your birth
And guided you on your first steps
For a long time we’ve shared this earth
From tall mountains to the vast steppes.
You were small and, oh, so frail,
Afraid of the vast world ahead
At first it seemed that you will fail,
Naked in the cold and unfed.
But we saw something inside you,
Courage and a will to move on;
We looked closely and we knew:
With us you can see a new dawn.
We took you under our close care,
Gave you shelter and kept you warm,
We could see how you were scared,
Afraid to go and face the storm.
With awe and wonder you looked at us
As we were part of your daily lives
In you we’ve placed our hope and trust
And shared the beauty which life gives.
We taught you the ways of nature,
To hear its sounds and feel its scent,
We were one with every creature
As the seasons came and went.
You wove us into your legends
“Dragons” is how you’ve called us
You wrote them by the thousands
On walls, on paper, in your hear

A Distant Prayer
Dragons strong, loving and wise,
Come down and hear our cries,
Dragons noble, brave and true,
Help us make the world brand new.
Dragons, wherever you’re gone,
Come back, paint a new dawn,
Dragons, scattered far and wide,
We are lost and need a guide.
Dragons, devoid of hate and fear,
Come close and wipe our tears,
Dragons, caring and gentle souls,
Mend our hearts filled with holes.
Dragons, symbols of grace and charm,
Keep our world safe from harm,
Dragons, watchful guardians of life,
Take from us our guns and knives.
Dragons, keepers of the balance,
Help us fight our grievance,
Dragons, teachers of ancient magic,
Break the chaos, make it music.
Dragons, timeless aides and healers,
Show us nature’s beauty and colors,
Dragons, bringers of soothing warmth,
Reveal us the path to go forth.
Dragons, beauty unsurpassed,
Share your knowledge great and vast,
Dragons, beauty undisguised,
Help us open our tired eyes.

Literature
Eternal Guardians, Timeless Friends
Givers of love and safety,
Bringers of peace and beauty,
Watching us since dawn of time
And helping us in our climb.
Eyes bright as the clear sun,
Beauty, grace equaled by none,
Sharing their immense wisdom
To those longing for freedom.
Touch soothing as a soft silk,
Voice sweet as honey with milk,
Showing us the right way
To go through life day by day.
Bodies warm as a bright flame,
A devotion with no name,
Healing our wounds and pains
By breaking loose our chains.
Wings as strong as their will,
Riding the sky with great skill,
Taking us to lands far and wide
As the winds grace their glide.
Scales painted in pure colors,
Smoother than all the feathers,
Comforting those who seek
A cure for their bodies weak.
Friendship infinite as space,
A bond which can’t be replaced,
Lighting up our bleak moments
And healing all our ailments.
Dragons loving like no other,
So keep them in your prayer
And when you’re in need of aid
They’ll come to you and forever stay.

Make Believe
Can you hear it?
The sound of flapping wings up high;
Can you hear it?
A growl echoing in the sky.
You’ve heard about them in stories
‘Bout castles, heroes and fairies,
Their great wisdom’s legendary,
Epic deeds write their glory,
It’s an honor to be their friend
And have them close till the end,
It’s a privilege to earn their trust,
So don’t let it turn to dust.
Can you see it?
A silhouette coming to you;
Can you see it?
A sight clear like morning dew.
Come closer and don’t be afraid,
Don’t stay there in the shade,
You have no reason to fear them
When they’re gentle as a poem;
They’re happy to meet someone new,
Someone curious such as you,
They’re willing to show kindness
And aid you in your sadness.
Can you feel it?
A body elegant and strong;
Can you feel it?
Movement delicate as a song.
Sense their strong tie with nature,
Their bond with every creature,
How they’re part of the grand show

Outcast
One head, two hands, two feet, two ears,
One heart, one brain, one mind,
I walk, I breathe, I’ve doubts and fears,
I am one of your kind.
Yet I feel like I don’t belong
In the grand scheme of things;
I want to know where I belong
So I can spread my wings.
I try to make my own voice heard
But it reaches deaf ears,
I dream to live free as a bird
But I’m drowning in tears.
I want to be warm and loving,
Humble, open, modest,
Traits so rare among the living;
It’s hard to be honest.
I know I'm not perfect,
I don’t pretend to be;
Why do I feel like a convict
In this world around me?
People had become so selfish
In their quest for rewards,
They are stinging like a catfish
In a race with no awards.
Is there anybody who cares
And willing to help me?
Will somebody show me the stairs
And help me find the key?
No, they only want to use me
As a tool for their goals.
After that they will just leave
And play their greedy roles.
They will go but I shall remain

The Killing Steel
This is a story so painful to hear
From a time of endless terror and fear,
When a night at home could be the last
And the final sound could be a loud blast.
The shadow of death spreading far and wide,
Countless souls forced into a last train ride,
Shedding tears, spilling blood, this was the plan
To quench the thirst for power of one man.
With one hand he was waving at the crowd,
Hearing his metallic name called out loud,
Under his mustache he gave a cold smile
While planning in his mind an act so vile.
The shepherd began to kill his own herd,
His sheep could be slain with a single word,
They were helpless under this bloody tide
And no ears would hear how loudly they’ve cried.
A simple signature could mark their end,
Betrayal would come even from a friend,
Regardless of faith, regardless of name,
To the man of steel they were all the same.
Mercy and pity were shown to none
As the lists were cleared out one by one.
It wasn’t enough and he wanted more,
Willing to spread fear

Coming Home
Giants made of concrete and metal,
Horns, engines, noise, a screeching choral,
These you find in an urban jungle,
Where its thick vines can kill and strangle.
Smoke and dust are filling the landscape,
Once you enter it you can't escape,
For me, apartments are like prison,
In which I'm slowly being eaten.
People turn back and have no concern,
Telling me I should be more modern.
There is no place here for my spirit,
Here, where destruction has no limit.
But there's a place where my heart belongs,
With peace and comfort that my soul longs,
It's the only place I can call home,
And it shelters me like a safe dome.
Fields filled with grass and flowers,
Trees, peace, solitude, soothing colors,
These you can find in the rural life
Where its clean air can heal and revive.
The smell of nature fills the landscape,
Once you sense it you cannot escape,
For me, endless fields are like heaven
In which sadness is slowly eaten.
People turn back and they say hello,
Telling me I am never solo.

Stay Away
You don't have the right to judge me
And question my views and beliefs,
I just want you to let me be;
Don't give me your tired motifs.
You don't see the world as I do,
Yet you want me to be normal.
You just see me as you want to,
As an arc in your own circle.
It doesn't matter where I go,
And I'm alone on my journey.
I'm the actor of my own show,
You watch me and think I'm loony.
But I've seen things you'll never see,
Places in which you won't travel,
Through life I fought to become free
While you stayed locked in your castle.
Don't presume to understand me,
You won't have me at your finger.
I alone have the only key,
So stay there, don't raise my anger.
Stay away from my private land,
From my world and from my dragon,
For you it is nothing but sand,
For you it is always barren.

Terra Antarctica
Here, in the land of endless white,
Where ice dominates every sight,
One can find a world so unique,
Willing to reveal its mystique.
Here, in the land of freezing cold,
Life finds a way to keep its hold
And every being that calls it home
Can thrive under this glacial dome.
Here, in the land of southern lights,
Nature sleeps under prolonged nights
Then wakes up at the sun’s return
When it ends this icy nocturne.
Here, in the land of snowy heights,
One can witness majestic sights
In a world still unknown to man
And not part of his control plan.
Here, in the land of the South Pole,
Close to the penguin’s heart and soul,
This last frontier remains at peace
And its lore shall never decrease.

Inner Guardians
They live in our hearts and soul,
When we sleep they’re on patrol
To protect us in the night
From demons that feed on fright.
They’re how we want them to be,
They see what we cannot see.
In turn we tend them in dreams
And they sing us lovely themes.
They arrive when we are born
To take for us each pain’s thorn;
Through the years they grow with us
As we slowly build their trust.
Presence warm as desert sand,
Voice soothing as a soft hand,
Wings for cover when we’re cold,
Devotion that can’t be sold.
Sometimes we hear them whisper
When we are weak as vapor
To help us find the right track
So we can always turn back.
They’ll always be our dragons
To guide us like clear beacons
Through every corner of life
That can cut us like a knife.
We only need to believe
And they’ll never let us grieve
In this world so full of hate,
With minds narrow as a strait.

The Show Must Go On
We all saw them rise to greatness
And every sense was our witness
To all the wonders they gave us
Which made everyone feel joyous.
With grace they took their final bow,
With masterful skills they knew how
To reach out to our hearts and souls
And play to the end their great roles.
We thought they would live forever
To give works of gold and silver
But they all went out like candles
And now they're up with the angels.
We've felt a piece of our lives die
When they rose up into the sky.
We still can't believe they're gone,
But their memory must live on.
Let's all sit down and remember
Their entire work and labor;
So let's preserve their foundations
For the future generations.

Rebirth (Request)
We’re the rulers of the Earth,
Or so we are taught to think,
But we misvalue our worth
And so we watch our pride shrink.
We’ve made the world a stage
Where we mount a killing play
But we act inside a cage
That keeps us locked in like prey.
It seems we have forgotten
How to seek and find answers,
All our values are now broken,
Cut by hubris’ sharp pincers.
What happened to our ideals?
Were they scattered in the wind?
Can we pass the new ordeals?
Can we become disciplined?
So many questions unanswered,
So long lost in the dark void.
We have become so absurd,
Not knowing what to avoid.
There are still a few out there
Who believe in salvation.
They will never cease to care
Or stop following ration.
Let’s wake up from this slumber
And see the world with new eyes,
Let’s relight the old ember
And let it burn all our lies.
All we need is one moment
To look into the mirror
And see the smallest fragment
Of what’s left of our honor.
We will only get one chance

Escapism
Here I find myself once more
Living in a reverie
Where I let my own dreams pour
A rain in my scenery.
Outside the world is laughing,
Pointing and calling me names,
They want me to keep acting
And forever play their games.
So I need a place to hide,
One with my own rules and laws,
Where my mind can freely glide
Away from the world’s cruel saws.
Past a hidden border lies
A world that’s perfect to me;
Over here my soul can rise
Infinitely and be free.
I feel like I’m a painter
And this world is my canvas;
Colors are pure as nectar,
With power to cure madness.
Like the universe it grows,
Changing as the years go by;
Here I will never have foes
And I won’t hear myself cry.
But soon I have to wake up
And face the real world again,
A world that needs a cleanup
Until there are no more stains.
But that day may never come,
So in two realms I shall dwell.
One that’s asleep and so numb,
And one charming like a spell.

Life on a Screen
There’s no script, there’s only one take,
Between two shots there is no break
The film is endlessly running;
I now watch the final screening.
My life began as a first draft,
Through the acts I honed my craft,
Years were filmed with many lenses
On so many sets and places.
Comedy, drama and horror,
All of them had me as actor.
Some had sound, some were silent,
And special effects were absent.
I was the only director,
The writer and the editor,
I was the one who called “action”
And set the movie in motion.
Scene by scene and shot by shot,
I have filmed my own life’s plot
And when I watch it on the screen
I’ll make sure that it’s clear and clean.
End credits are ready to roll,
Slowly and calmly like a stroll,
Over them I play a soft song
That only I can sing along.
I have pieced the scenes together
Into a great motion picture.
If it’s a pleasure to recap
I will say that it’s a wrap.

A Tale of Two Dragons
They say this is a fairy tale,
Just a story and nothing more.
Sit down, relax, let your mind sail
With a tale like never before.
It happened a long time ago,
When charm and beauty ruled the land,
Each day was a wonderful show,
All was so peaceful and so grand.
Days were warm and full of sun,
Nights were calm and full of lights,
Bright, colorful and equal to none,
All blended into majestic sights.
It was filled with many creatures
Some of which you can see today
Each with their own special features
And many beauties to display.
But one of them stood out the most:
Dragons so mighty and graceful.
A unique sight when they came close,
For some wondrous, for some frightful.
Oh, I wish you could have seen them
Riding the wind up in the sky;
With strong bodies, eyes like gems,
And souls warm as the sun of July.
Many great stories surround them
But there’s one so dear to my heart,
Beautiful like a sweet poem
And lovely like a work of art.

Twins, like tw

The Road Ahead
Burdening you it is,
all the troubles and pains
you've been dealt in life.
Heavy are they,
like chains of iron and dread,
that they weigh you down.
Though hard are the steps
on the road you take,
though difficult are the trials
you face each day,
never give up.
Hope there is to see
as you look ahead.
Dark are the clouds
in the sky,
but bright
is the sun and light.
Gaze not in the past behind,
but look onward
to the life ahead.
Hope and life
lie in the sky above,
breaking through the
storm ahead.
Alone you are not
in thr trials and change.
Around you we are -
friends,
and kin -
always to give air.
The path traveled alone
is weary and hard,
but with us beside you
the easier it becomes.  
Your back and shield
we are -
with you every step
on the way ahead.

Friendship
A brave girl who wandered alone in the woods
met something on her green path.
It was blue, with two wings, scales on all its body,
its two eyes were full of sadness.
The girl didn’t get scared when first seeing the dragon
as it did not look menacing,
but got instead closer and asked with her sweet tone:
“O what is that makes you sad?”
The creature saw her, then spoke in a male voice:
“I am the only dragon left.”
The girl felt no capable to move at all,
petrified by the news,
for she too knew what it meant to lose all those
that had loved and cared for you.
She instinctively hugged him, the dragon accepted,
in few instants they were friends.
She spent the night with him, they both laughed and joked,
compassionating each other.
Many years then passed for the girl and the dragon,
all happy years spent together.
he did feel alone no more with his companion,
she loved him and he loved her.
One day when they wandered alone in the woods,
flying up with the trees

Greetings, everyone! I'm a hobbyist writer of poetry across various genres, with fantasy being my favorite. Writing has always been a great passion for me, but it wasn't until the beginning of 2015 that I decided to take it seriously. Apart from poetry, I like writing fiction, also in the fantasy genre, but I don't mind tackling other genres as well.

Have you ever dreamed of flying
Free in the blue sky up high?
To feel the cold wind blowing
In your face and in your eyes?

We all had that dream in our lives
And imagined the feeling
Of waiting to see the sunrise
And bathe in the rays so healing.

But have you dreamed of flying
On the back of a dragon?
To feel their body gliding
As you pass over mountains?

It’s difficult to depict,
But I’ll try in these verses
To describe something perfect,
Unlike any heard stories.

With unique skills and great ease
The dragon slowly takes off
Taming the winds to a breeze
With no risk of you falling off.

The ground gets smaller and smaller
As you two are gaining height,
Thus you start an adventure
Under the sun warm and bright.

Passing calm and blue waters
While seeing a reflection;
In it you see two brothers
One of them showing protection.

Looking close, you see two as one,
Not just a man and a dragon;
Two souls joined under the sun,
Knowing this is no fiction.

Heading for the tall mountains
Standing strong and mighty,
You see their peaks as beacons,
Ready to show no pity.

To a dragon that’s no barrier,
As he tackles them with wits,
For he is not a quitter,
No matter the turns and twists.

Then, above the great, white clouds,
He slows to a peaceful glide
For there are no storms or shrouds
To disturb your happy ride.

You feel the sky in your reach
And smell the pure, clean air
There’s not a noise, nor a screech,
Just you and your dragon’s flair.

Passing long, narrow valleys
At the speed of the mighty gust,
You feel how time freezes
As you’re with the one you trust.

No matter how long or narrow
The valley may seem to be
The dragon flies like an arrow
Taking you to the great sea.

On its shore he now descends,
Slowly landing on the sand,
The sunset’s color slowly spreads
Over the wide, sleepy land.

Your flight is now at an end
But the day is not over,
There’s still much time to spend
Close to your caring brother.

Lying down in great silence,
Perched on his warm body,
You drown in sweet flagrance
Given by his love so hearty.

Day slowly gives way to night,
You’re still locked in his embrace,
Meeting a gaze calm and bright
As he warms you like a fireplace.

Humming a sweet lullaby
To give you peaceful dreams,
His soft voice can purify
Your soul and expel your fears.

So the next time you go to sleep
Whisper a soft little prayer
So your dragon knows you’re asleep
And take you on a great adventure.

Long ago we’ve witnessed your birth
And guided you on your first steps
For a long time we’ve shared this earth
From tall mountains to the vast steppes.

You were small and, oh, so frail,
Afraid of the vast world ahead
At first it seemed that you will fail,
Naked in the cold and unfed.

But we saw something inside you,
Courage and a will to move on;
We looked closely and we knew:
With us you can see a new dawn.

We took you under our close care,
Gave you shelter and kept you warm,
We could see how you were scared,
Afraid to go and face the storm.

With awe and wonder you looked at us
As we were part of your daily lives
In you we’ve placed our hope and trust
And shared the beauty which life gives.

We taught you the ways of nature,
To hear its sounds and feel its scent,
We were one with every creature
As the seasons came and went.

You wove us into your legends
“Dragons” is how you’ve called us
You wrote them by the thousands
On walls, on paper, in your hearts.

Time went by, you began to change
And you stopped looking at us
For you, suddenly we were strange,
As you destroyed years of trust.

We were still sharing the sun
But we were losing our touch
Tell us what have we done
To make you hate us so much?

In your eyes we were now trophies,
Nothing more than mere animals,
You’ve forgotten all the stories
And replaced friendship with betrayal.

Suddenly we were the villains,
Greedy, ugly, vile and fierce
You taught all how us dragons
Must have our hides pierced.

Plunged into years of sadness,
We felt our purpose was lost,
Words cannot cure your deafness,
So our grace came at a cost.

The world became your garden
To plant and harvest what you please,
You drew a heavy curtain
Between “me and all of these”.

Despite this, we still kept vigil
Hoping this is a passing phase,
But you kept running in circles
From one brash act to the next.

Our souls were crushed, our hearts broken
As we went beyond the sky blue,
Though we may be far and hidden,
We have never stopped loving you.

Dragons strong, loving and wise,
Come down and hear our cries,
Dragons noble, brave and true,
Help us make the world brand new.

Dragons, wherever you’re gone,
Come back, paint a new dawn,
Dragons, scattered far and wide,
We are lost and need a guide.

Dragons, devoid of hate and fear,
Come close and wipe our tears,
Dragons, caring and gentle souls,
Mend our hearts filled with holes.

Dragons, symbols of grace and charm,
Keep our world safe from harm,
Dragons, watchful guardians of life,
Take from us our guns and knives.

Dragons, keepers of the balance,
Help us fight our grievance,
Dragons, teachers of ancient magic,
Break the chaos, make it music.

Dragons, timeless aides and healers,
Show us nature’s beauty and colors,
Dragons, bringers of soothing warmth,
Reveal us the path to go forth.

Dragons, beauty unsurpassed,
Share your knowledge great and vast,
Dragons, beauty undisguised,
Help us open our tired eyes.

Dragons, champions of good and kind,
Fill with wisdom our empty minds,
Dragons, fighters for truth and peace,
May your love for us never cease,

Part of my comeback, this poem is probably the most personal one I've written so far. But I want to share it with all of you, because I'm very proud of it.

Hello, my fellow Deviants, artists and friends!

As you no doubt have noticed, I haven't posted anything since August last year and have been completely away since November. I've been in a self-imposed, prolonged hiatus due to various, important, even life-altering, changes in my professional, spiritual and artistic life. These made me put away my writing activities for a time.

First off, I have a new job since November that took me some time to get comfortable with. It is pretty time consuming because, more often than not, I'm required to stay there from morning till evening and sometimes even on Saturdays. But I like this job and post, so I'm not bothered too much by this inconvenience. 

Second, there have been slow, but steady and life-altering changes in my spiritual life as well, changes which began more than a year ago and reached the apex last month. These changes continue and grow day by day, basically accelerating. They completely changed my life on every level, as well as its philosophy, how I view the world, gave me a new sense of purpose and made me a better person. These changes extend to my artistic side as well.

These two, along with a few other reasons, made me enter into an artistic hiatus. Even though I did manage to get some writing done in this period, those works were nothing more than exercise pieces and most of them were left unfinished. Another reason is that I've also started working on a collection of poems that I intend to publish so, for that reason, I won't post them on DA.

I want to take this opportunity to apologize for my sudden and prolonged absence. I also want to apologize if I've worried some of my watchers. I'm still alive and well, just away for a time and it may remain like that for a while.
