FRAGRANT DRAGON ~ Feeling Nostalgic by Linda Villano

Monday, April 27th 2015 @ 12:00 AM

Fragrant Dragon, a poem - feeling nostalgic. . .

 

 

 

 

 




Fragrant Dragon

Never fear,  for when thou dost look

into the magic of the morning light

ascending from the East,

There I am.

Look about you in the wind

when it hurtles through your house

singing the ancient songs of Troy and Agamemnon,

I am there.

A Painful Pot by Johnson Tsang

 

And when the steam rises from your tea,

drawing the jade silhouette of a

thousand past emperors,

know that I am there watching over you,

As I rise fragrantly from the cup.

-Tomislav Podreka, 2003-
