Fire Dragon – Forest Dragon

If you ventured into a Forest’s Woods at the “turn of autumn”, then perhaps you may find yourself thinking – just whose “lick of flame” are these?  For if you was a Squirrel, then it’s possible, that you may find the “furnace” of this Forest Fire.  Upon one such Adventure, did I find myself – within the “orange haze” of this fantasy wallpaper.  In the blanket of this “tinder box” did I meet, this Forest Fire Dragon:

This Dragon was as I expected a Dragon to be:  for it’s traits were of a Western nature; who appeared to be “perfectly at home”, within this Forest of Fire.  A Forest Fire that left no doubt within my mind, as to who it was that breathed this Fire – for flames flicked around this Dragon’s teeth.  It’s body was “scaled in darkness”, thick armour plates that glowed in the colours of this Fire.  It’s tail was long and curled, appearing as a “whip” – as this Dragon nestled in the barren.  This Dragon’s wings were “bathed in red”, as if a “shield of fire” – helped guard this Dragon and his hoard.  What was the Dragon looking at?  It seemed to me that this Dragon, was looking at the “burnt out stump” of a fledgling tree.  Perhaps it was, that this Dragon – admired his “handy work”.  For in orange brown, did the Trees of this Forest – appear to be ablaze.  The grass of this Forest, writhed in the heat; as the wind of this Forest, turned up the heat.  At it’s heart sat the Dragon, and the wisdom of Fire!  For it was indeed, that this Forest Fire Dragon, had a “wink in his eye”.  The browning of the autumn leaf.  The crackle of the autumn leaf.  The blanket of the autumn leaf.  For it was foreseen, that this Dragon – helped drive the nature of this Wood:  from summer sun to autumn gold.

Forest Dragon – Tree Dragon

If you ventured into a Forest’s Woods at the “turn of spring”, then perhaps you may find yourself thinking – just whose “green fingers” are these?  For if you was a Deer, then it’s possible, that you may find the “architect” of this Woodland Spring.  Upon one such Quest, did I find myself – within the “greener shores” of this fantasy wallpaper.  In the “green of the leaves” did I meet, this Forest Tree Dragon:

This Dragon was unlike any that I’d seen before:  for it was “less Eastern more Western”; but with several “woodland traits”.  This Dragon’s wings reminded me, of a “forest curtain”.  This Dragon’s scales reminded me, of “creeping vines”.  This Dragon’s body reminded me, of “oaken wood”.  This Dragon’s head reminded me, of a Western Dragon; but with a twist, for this Dragon’s horns, seemed reminiscent of a Forest Stag!  Thus did I encounter, this Dragon and his “fairy glamour”.  What was the Dragon doing?  It seemed to me that this Dragon, concerned himself with “Forest Tasks”.  Wrapped around this Oaken Tree, a “busy bee” of Springtime “change”.  The gold of the autumn leaf, the green of the sapling bud.  The gold of the autumn tree, the green of the pasture new.  The wind of the autumn breeze, the “fairy wand” in emerging Spring.  What was the Dragon growing?  It seemed to me that this Dragon, concerned himself with the “Tree of Life”.  Growing from this Oaken Tree, a “worker bee” of “Forest Furnace”.  The painting of the leaves so new; in shades of green – with twists of Elven.  The laying of the grass so soft; in blades of green – with hints of Sun.  The spreading of the seed so fine; in grains of brown – with bud in Sight.  For in this Woodland Home – I found this Dragon and his Seed:  Wise of Eve and Green of Adam.

Autumn Dragon – Eastern Dragon

If you ventured into a Forest’s Woods at the “tide of autumn”, then you may be correct in thinking – that this is indeed a “Magical Place”.  For if you was a wanderer, then it’s possible, that you may find the foundry of a Mythical Realm.  Upon one such Quest, did I find myself – within the golden lands of this fantasy wallpaper.  With the “change of the seasons” did I meet, this Forest Dragon:

I’d heard of Dragons before, but this Dragon seemed different; when compared to the “standard traits” of an Eastern Dragon.  Whilst this Dragon was still “long and serpentine”; it’s talons, scales and snout – whispered more of bird!  With a glance upon it’s feet, did it’s claws appear to be:  more at home “upon a perch”, than upon this cobbled path.  It’s twirling whiskers, and glowing eyes:  tweet of Owl, and “Speak the Wise”.  What was it the Dragon said?  The gold of the Leaves and the bark of the Trunks.  The gold of the Grass and the brown of the Boughs.  The shelter of the Canopy and the arch of the Trees.  For in this Woodland Lair – did this Dragon “dwell alone”.  What was it the Dragon meant?  A thousand years within this Kingdom:  fall of Leaf and fell of Trunk.  A timing of the perfect moment:  shimmer Grass and glowing Bough.  A hidden place within this Forest:  with sheltered Canopy and armoured Tree.  For in this Woodland hour – did this Dragon “guard alone”.  What was it the dragon guarded?  The entrance to these Woods – from daylight sun to autumn shade.  The bridge across this River – from pastures light to autumn’s gold.  The path along these Woods – from cobbled start to leafy sea.  For in this Woodland Realm – I found this Autumn Dragon:  Wise of Owl and Tide of Change.

Forest Dragon – Wood Dragon

If you ventured into a Forest’s Woods at the “height of day”, then you may be mistaken for thinking – that all is “calm and friendly”.  For if you was a Knight, then it’s possible, that you may find the entrance to a Forgotten Realm!  Upon one such Quest, did I find myself – within the Woodland of this fantasy wallpaper.  With my shield of a Knight’s Templar – did I encounter, this Forest Dragon:

I’d heard of Dragons before, but this Dragon seemed different; when compared to the “standard traits” of both Eastern and Western.  It’s talons and scales were of a Western Dragon, but it’s length and shape – were more befitting of an Eastern Dragon.  Upon my “steed in white”, did I first battle this Dragon!  I drew my sword, and prepared for “what may be”.  With the “weight of my helm”, did this Dragon – wrap itself around the Forest Trees.  It’s “claws dug deep” – within the bark of a Tree.  With the “clamour of my armour”, did this Dragon – become a Bastion of the Forest Trees.  It’s “rows of teeth” – reaching for me!  With the “strength in my arms”, did this Dragon – make it’s “war cry” at me.  It’s “hungry tongue” – flicking out at me.  For this Woodland Realm, was this Dragon’s Hoard.  The green of the Leaves and the bark of the Trunks.  The green of the Grass and the yellows of the Baron.  The swaying of the Boughs and the windswept Blades.  For this Woodland Realm, was this Dragon’s Lair.  How long had it dwelt here?  Know not I.  Where did it sleep?  Know not I.  What of the Maiden that you’d “hoped to find” upon your Quest?  Know not I.  For this Woodland Realm, with it’s Forest Dragon, and his Hoard of Wood – was this Knight’s demise!

Moon Fairy – Dark Fairy

I believe that it’s possible to encounter two main types of Moon Fairy – those that are associated with the “light side” of the Moon, and those that are associated with the “dark side” of the Moon.  Within this fantasy fairy wallpaper, did I encounter one such Fairy.  She whispered to me, from the “other side” of the Moon; and in doing so, did I find myself thinking “Fairy Realms of the Night”:

With the stark contrast between the whites of the Moon, and the black silhouette of this Fairy – it seems that light and dark Moon Fairies, could not be more different!  This Dark Fairy silhouette, matches the shading of the Forest and it’s Trees.  What once was calm and friendly, now takes on a new persona – shrouded in the mysteries of the Dark.  What was that sound?  The Trees creaking in the night, as a flock of startled birds – take to the sky.  What startled the birds?  The Creeping Willow “on the right”, as your imagination runs amok – “running scared” within this Midnight Wood.  But with a flutter of wings did you first notice; the butterflies of light – upon the bottom right.  But with a flutter of wings did you then notice; the Fairy in dark – as she appeared in-front of the Moon.  Both hiding in the shadows, with just an arc of Moon, thinking of this Moonlit night!  How long did you shiver?  It felt like an hour, but it could only have been – several minutes at most!  For I found myself “lost” in Fairy Glamour.  This Fairy was a contradiction!  Her silhouette in black, with moonlit Fairy Wings – that reminded me so very-much, of a garden Flower Fairy.  It was her petals that shimmered in the light of the Moon.  It was her petals that guided me this night – for she helped me to find, a path through these Woods!

Moon Fairy – Water Fairy

Two of my favourite kinds of fairies have to be both Moon and Water.  I like Moon fairies because I feel that they are associated with “guiding lights at night” – whilst at the same time being “just out of reach”.  I like Water fairies because they are associated with “ripples of fun” – whilst at the same time being “just a wave ahead”.  So, what of a Fairy that is both Moon and Water?

Could this Fairy sit upon the rocks?  I believe she could, but not like a Mermaid.  She would instead, be sitting at rest – thinking of the “starless skies” and the “mists upon the sea”.  In starless skies, would you find “kingdoms of the blue”.  In mists upon the sea, would you find “glowing of the mystic”.  Could this Fairy muse upon the sea?  I believe she could, but not like a Sailor.  She would instead, be one with the sea – knowing just where the “ripples lay” and the “tides of this time”.  In ripples lay, would you find “a quest of moonlight”.  In tides of this time, would you find the “pull of the moon”.  Could this Fairy glow with Moonlight?  I believe she could, but not like a Moonbeam.  She would instead, be a butterfly of light – knowing just where the “turns be taken” and the “flutter this night”.  In turns be taken, would you find the “arcs of fairytale”.  In flutter this night, would you find the sound of “fairy godmother”.  Could this Fairy think of you?  I believe she could, but not like a Tooth Fairy.  She would instead, be sat upon the rocks, musing by the sea, glowing in the moonlight – connecting stepping stones, of guiding light, with just-a-twist of moonlit fun:  the “Sirens of the Sea”.
