Dragon Flames by Sheila Hollinghead

The coldness of the night is

Embraced by swaying trees,

Bent by the relentless surge of the wind.

I peer into the darkness,

Longing, yearning, needing.

My body shivers and warmth seeps.

Lonely trees lean to

Touch a fading shadow.

A freezing wind rustles the leaves

That speak knowingly of my loneliness.

A dragon breathes upon the night,

Warming the marrow of my bones.

I tremble before the shimmering blaze.

Slay my soul with your flames, Oh God,

Quench my thirst.

Let your searing fire seal my heart,

Destroy the coldness, and ease

The loneliness of your child.
