Castles and Lairs


Fingers flicker
imitating dragons leaping
from page to page
casting fire and chivalry
over dew dropped fairy tales

Thanks Guys.

Imran, I google for the right picture after writing a poem.
Sometimes it fits so amazingly well.

I liked this Carol. The picture really was a match to what you wrote. Good job.

Lovely Carol. This evokes the juxtaposition of the world of the reader and the fairy tale world that she has entered.
