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 Fight – Dragon Knight

Some may say that a King’s Army – has little to fear.  Others may say, that a King’s Army – is fear itself.  Yet others may say, that a King’s Army – cannot be conquered!  And so perhaps, that may be true.  But within this Fantasy Land, it is not!  For within this Fantasy Land, there lives a Dragon – whose Armour, is as hard as Rock:

It was upon a Day of Destiny, that a King’s Army – met this Dragon.  At the Forte of a Castle, in the Greens of the Wood.  At the Falls of a River, in the Rocks of the Flow.  A Dragon came, to test the might – of this Army and his Knight.  With Spear and Throw.  With Crossbow and Shoot.  These are the weapons; that these Knight’s did choose.  With Sword and Thrust.  With Snare and Hold.  These are the weapons; that these Knight’s did wield.  In Battle Steel, with Capes in Red.  In Command of King, with Iron of Will.  This Army came!  In Thick of Hide, with Powerful Wings.  In Teeth of Talon, with Grinning Bite.  This Dragon came!  What of the Knights?  They held their Stance.  They aimed their Lance.  They fought this Dragon, the best they could!  A circle of Knights, from all-around.  A Mythical Beast, for Bow and Cross.  They fired their volleys!  What of the Dragon?  He held his ground.  No arrow pierced.  He beat his wings.  No sword could bite.  He lashed his tail.  No stance could hold.  Frederick fell!  He bit through snare.  He reared so high.  With powerful flick.  Did Robin fly!  What of this – Dragon’s Fight?  All day for Knight.  Our Knights did fall.  All lunch for him.  Our Army no more!  No chance for King.  No Castle could Keep!  A Mountain of Rock – this Dragon of Rent!

Dragon Knight – Dragon Steed

They say that in the Steepest Rocks, can you find a Dragon’s Armour.  But if you find a Dragon’s Armour, what will you find – within these Plates of Steel?  Full of Battle and of Dragon – Full of Talon and of Roar!  Dragon’s Gorge, a Dragon’s Forge.  This Dragon Steed “clad-full” of Battle Dragon:

I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of Battle Dragons!  Imagine a Western Dragon, that’s already powerful beyond belief; and yet, becomes transformed when adorned in Dragon Armour.  No longer would such a Dragon – have to fear, a Dragon’s Claws, nor Longbow’s Arrow.  Swathed in Armour, deflecting blows.  Swathed in Plate, hard as Ice.  Swathed in Blacksmith, hot as Fire!  A Skilful Steed, upon this Knight.  A Dragon’s Army, upon this – Precipice!  I speak of Battle Dragon.  A Formidable Force, with Glowing Eyes.  A Dragon’s Roar, with Shiver to my Spine.  A Dragon’s Grip, with Strength in his Arms.  A Dragon’s Tail, with Bite in his Barb.  A Dragon’s Wings, with Sky to his Eyes.  A Dragon’s Pose, with Flight to his Mind!  I speak of Knight.  This Dragon’s Keeper, Might of Steel.  This Dragon’s Keeper, Cape of Red.  This Dragon’s Keeper, Shield of Fire.  In Darkest Night, these Clouds of Rain.  In Blackest Sky, these Crows of War.  In Grey-est Heavens, two Paths in Light – a Silver Tongue, Precipice and more!  I speak of Element.  This Dragon’s Fire, quashed for now.  This Dragon’s Air, quite for now.  This Dragon’s Water, quenched for now.  This Dragon’s Earth, braced for now.  BUT! Brace for Hurricane!  This Dragon’s Fire, burning bright.  This Dragon’s Air, rushing by.  This Dragon’s Water, ripped a path.  This Dragon’s Earth, braced for rent.  This Dragon’s Spirit “War-Cry” of Battle Dragon.  Up and up, did this Dragon – soar!

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!
