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:

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!
