Ode to Snow Dragon



— Poem by Liz Cowburn; Exploring Colour

Softly surging through the water

Near me I would have you stay

Onward going, never slowing

Wondrous how you surf the waves!

Dignified determination

Raging torrents all around

Anxious to pursue your journey

Going, flowing, ocean-bound

One brief glimpse through foamy spray

Nature’s gift, soon borne away


This poem is in response to a general Creative Invitation posted yesterday on my blog. Please follow the link for details if you’d like to join in!

Here is the photo that inspired this poem, do you see the Snow Dragon?

    1. Your photo was the catalyst that inspired this huge mental effort to go further than haiku. This is really big for me – to do something longer that actually sounds like a poem. Yesterday I re-read it repeatedly because I simply couldn’t believe I’d done it!
