Winter Fairy – Winter Woods – Black Dragon

Winter Fairies may be found within the Woods of many a Frozen landscape – with one of my favourites, being the Fantasy Realms of Tinkerbell!  Now, I have heard that it is their Pixie Dust, that transforms an Autumn landscape – both in terms of Frost, and in terms of Snow.  But what then, would we expect of a Winter Fairy Dragon Queen?

A Winter Fairy – Riding her Horse, through Winter Woods – Whilst chatting with her Black Dragon.

Does she ride through the woods this Night?  With Gallop and Trotter, this Fairy Queen – Explores her Realm.  Does she talk with the wildlife this Eve?  With her ears of an Elf, and plenty of time to gossip, this Fairy Queen – speaks with her Dragon.  What does her Fantasy Dragon have to say?  Perhaps he speaks of the Winter Harvest, of an Acorn and it’s sleeping Tree?  Perhaps he speaks of an impending Snow Storm, a mighty Blizzard of which to tell his Queen?  It’s hard to say for sure, as these Black Dragons, often keep their secrets, to themselves 🙂  Although it can be said for sure, that he’s a Western Dragon, of a smaller/younger species – more of a Familiar?  In any case, in this Heart of the Woods, did I find this Fairy Queen, sitting upon her Whiten Steed.  It was a wallpaper scene, that could have been, straight from the pages of a Fairytale.  It was an Adventurer’s Quest, where I felt the need, to put my feet up, on this Cold Winters Night.  Yet here did I find an oddity:  for this Fantasy Fairy, was dressed in the Blacks of the Night, with the contrasting Pinks of a Flower Fairy?  It would seem as though this Fairy, had some power over, the Coldness of the Winter Snows?  For she is dressed, almost as though, she’s in the Heights of Summer!  Or perhaps instead, she just walks the Paths of Fairy Glamour 🙂  In any case, with the whispers of Winter, did I see this Fairy Queen, beckon her Dragon in black.  The mysterious of Fairy, with the mythical of Dragon; the delicate of Fairy, with the Gathering of Snow – I had an idea!  Perhaps this Fairy, whispered to her Dragon – Do you want to build a Snowman?  My answer is yes 🙂  But not a Snowman, along the lines of the “Bad Snowman”, that’s found within Disney’s Frozen; more a Snowman, that’s found within, the Fantasy Realms, of my Winter Gardens. For in Paths of Snow, a Winter Fairy’s Horse does Trot.  For in Paths of Snow, a Winter Fairy’s Dragon does Fly.  For in Path’s of Snow, a Winter Fairy’s Dragon Queen, does Be-spell this Winter Haven, and all that come within, her Realm of Fantasy!  And saying that, it is now time for me, to Be-Spell you:  What song should you sing to a Snowman on his Birthday?  Freeze a jolly good fellow!  Freeze a jolly good fellow!  And so say all of us!

Black Dragon – Night Dragon – Chaos Dragon

If you were to ask me to name the colour of a Dragon, that is unlike “any other”, then I would say – a Black Dragon.  Immediately, is the connection with night-time apparent, but would such a connection be in Moonlight, Starlight or Nightmare?
Black Dragon - Night Dragon - Chaos Dragon
If Moonlight:  does this Dragon’s scales, shine this night.  Perhaps then, would this Dragon be helpful – as he helps “show the way”, on your next Fantasy Adventure, or “Treasure Quest”.  If Starlight:  does this Dragon’s eyes, shine so bright.  Perhaps then, would this Dragon point the paths to the Stars – as it is with human ambition, and “Quests of the Mind”.  If Nightmare:  does this Dragon’s Horns scare you to the bone.  Perhaps then, would this Dragon seek his torment – as he hunts you, through this “starless night”.  Running, running, through the night – his eyes fixed on you.  His towering form, sending shivers:  “down your spine”.  Calming, calming, through a starry sky – his power fixed on you.  His towering form, inspiring you: “reach for the stars”.  Guiding, guiding, through these cavernous rocks – his influence as strong as the sun.  His towering form, bringing shape:  “to these jagged rocks”.  Yet, as it is with the colour of black – his desires “cloaked in mystery”.  How would you know?  Would you look to the whites of the sky?  Would you look to the greens of the mountainous rock?  Would you find your answer, in his Dragon’s Eyes, or in his Dragon’s Claws?  For only in his Dragon’s Roar, would you find – your answer for sure!  ROAR!!!  As he sends a shiver down your spine.  ROAR!!!  As his Dragon’s Head, turns slowly to consider you.  ROAR!!!  As his Dragon’s Eyes, turn Maleficent Green, his intention is clear!  For this Western Dragon, is a Chaos Dragon, versed in the Paths of Malice.  Only then would you know, Nightmare for sure!  As for a minute, did I think of that scene from Dungeons and Dragons, that City at the Edge of Midnight, where childhood dreams, of being dragged under the bed, still hold power, in these Midnight Realms.  I froze!  For this Chaos Dragon, revels in the Powers of the Dark, Master of the Night.  For this Chaos Dragon, is a Lore onto himself, Hunter of the Darkest Soul.  For this Chaos Dragon, lives in this mountain pass, and “judges all”, that desire to pass this way 🙂

Winter Dragon – Eastern Dragon – Snow Dragon

Eastern Dragons are huge “serpent like” beasts, that are far more likely to be associated with a particular element, and/or a particular season.  Just like Falkor “the Luckdragon”, they are often seen as the “source of information”, for many a stalwart adventurer.  Upon one such “Fantasy Quest”, did I encounter, this Winter Dragon, Snow Dragon:
Winter Dragon - Eastern Dragon - Snow Dragon
In undulating snow dunes, with whispers of the forest, did this Winter Dragon:  come to me.  In warmth of “winter furs”, and “white in black” of Snow Leopard, did this Winter Dragon:  fly to me.  With colder skies, and bluer hues of “shiver winds”, did this Winter Dragon:  speak to me.  If I was on a Quest, could this Snowy Land – guide my way?  It’s undulating dunes, made of powdery snow – no paths of trodden foot, just one step forward.  It’s whispers of the forest, made of clumping snow – with heavy feet, and light of heart, just one step forward.  It’s Winter Dragon “Spells of Winter”:  two Snowmen on the right, one sleeping Mountain on the left – an army in the snow, two footsteps forward.  If I was on a Quest, could this Snowy Land – go by name?  It’s winter furs, and love of ice – no head’s bowed low, just iron of will, and much resolve.  It’s agile as a hunting cat, and whiskers of the wizened man – it’s head held proud, with strongest back.  This home of Winter Dragon:  Siberia and her “Winter Gates”.  For in Realms of Fantasy, do I find that I think of none other, than Disney’s Frozen 🙂  Especially that scene, where Elsa walks up the mountain, giving into her powers!  And also that scene, where Anna is first tested, by the Blizzards of Snow, when first she tries to find Elsa.  As that’s also where, this Eastern Dragon’s powers lay:  the ability to command the Element of Ice, and the Element of Snow.  For when this Dragon’s Mood, is thought of Conquest, will your Palace/Castle be besieged, in Realms of Ice.  For when this Dragon’s Mood, is thought of Guardian, will your Adventurer be besieged, by Tests of Strength.  For when this Dragon’s Mood, is thought of Winter, will your Landscapes be besieged, by Empires of the White 🙂  For this Winter Dragon, Snow Dragon, knows just where these Gates of Winter Fantasy, may be found:  from the smallest “spec of snow”, to the largest “sheet of ice”, all are bound to him!  From the smoothest “lake of skate”, to the harshest “climb of glacier”, all may bow to him!  For he’s a Winter Dragon, a Guardian of his Winter Realm, whose versed in knowledge of the wise, and answer to your question:  will it snow this day?

Fire Dragon – Western Dragon

Western Dragons are huge ill-tempered beasts, that dwell in Caves and are the nemesis of many a “would be” Adventurer.  On one such adventure, within these Fantasy Realms, did I encounter such a beast!  A Guardian Fire Drake of the North:
Fire Dragon - Western Dragon - Dragon's Hoard
First, did I notice:  this Dragon’s eyes.  Two gems of yellow, in contrasting red, that locked on me, with Dragon’s rage.  Second, did I notice:  this Dragon’s stance.  With two steps forward, one clenched fist, it’s head inclined, a Dragon’s bulk – fixed on me!  Third, did I notice:  this Dragon’s Hoard.  With golden coins, and chests of treasure, a mountain pile, of Dragon’s wealth.  If I was an adventurer, could this Dragon’s Hoard, be my – nemesis?  It’s golden coins, made by Fire.  It’s chests of treasure, made by Kings.  It’s mountain pile, the “countless years”.  This Dragon’s wealth, spoke in Fire!  Two nostrils fuming – with reddened scales, two horns in bone – with highlight white.  This Fiery Dragon, guards his Cave!  Of stalactites, and plunging depths – with golden glow, and Earthly call.  If I was an adventurer, could this Dragons Cave, be my – rest in place?  Last, did I notice:  the fallen Heroes, about his feet.  Just skeletons remained, of once “mighty” Warriors.  Last, did I notice:  the fallen Swords, still held in grasp.  Their sharpened edge, now – “lay in vain”.  Last, did I notice:  this Dragon’s War Cry.  His “heart of rage”, determined eye, that brought me forward, with much desire 🙂  Only then, did I foresee, Mighty Smaug, in all his form?!
Fire Dragon - Western Dragon - SmaugBorn of Western, Born of Malice, mighty Smaug spoke to me:  “It’s MY Dragon’s Hoard”!  A Dragon’s Spell, that I was under?  A Dragon’s Wealth, before my Eyes 🙂  A Dragon’s Wrath, spoke in Fire!  For this Knight’s Adventurer, knows just too well, where to find, these Western Dragons:  they live in books, they live in artwork, they live in films, they live in games, they live in role play, they live in Caves!

Dragon Key – Dragon Girl

There are those of us, that bear the Mark of the Dragon.  We feel it in our Blood.  We know it in our Hearts.  It’s a driving passion, that steers us through these Quests.  It’s in my Adventurous steps.  It’s in my Dragon War-cry.  It’s in the Eyes of my Soul.  It’s a guiding presence, that Wars-away this Rock.  It’s in this Mountainous Climb.  It’s in the Glint of my Eyes:

For I am a Dragon!  Built powerful and wise.  For I am a Dragon!  Built elegant and dream.  For I am a Dragon!  Tattooed in Ink.  Keys to the Gate.  This Western Dragon of I!  What of the Dragon in You?  Armed of Talon.  Armed of Fang.  Coloured in black, with Moonlight of Night.  Aligned with the Dark, but not of the Evil.  Aligned with the Moon, but not of the Day.  Aligned with Desire, but not of the Foolish.  This Dragon knows – the Temperance of Time.  This Dragon knows – the Riddles of Calm.  This Dragon knows – the Power of a Laugh.  What of the Dragon in Spirit?  It was Forged in the Earth.  It was Forged in the Fire.  A Ruby in Red, this Dragon’s Desire!  It was Made in the Dark.  It was Made of the Light.  A Gemstone in White, this Dragon’s Allure!  It was Rent of the Roots.  It was Clawed of the Slope.  A Crystal in Green, this Dragon’s Supreme!  This Dragon’s Hoard – the Passion of Fight.  This Dragon’s Hoard – the Valley of Calm.  What of the Dragon in Key?  With Claws for Rend.  With Talons for Fight.  A beat of his Wings.  Come forth of I!  With Armour for Touch.  With Velvet for Bed.  A jump of his Kin.  Surge forth of I!  With Calmness of Eye.  With Warring of You.  This Dragon and I – One of the Same!

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.

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.
