Dare

A dragon

To be your good friend

And let you ride on its tail

Fun

Then

Do something

Nice for your new friend

Share your secret hiding place

Trust

Puff Piece

Just

Today

A dragon

Sat in my yard

Alone in the sun

As if he had no friends

He watched the birds as they flew

I wondered if he’d want to play

I started outside but was afraid

He began crying silent dragon tears

There were little puffs of smoke when he sighed

I went over and sat nearby

We kept our thoughts to ourselves

Watching clouds floating by

Enjoying the breeze

Sharing the love

With a friend

I made

Today

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Myth & Write

They doubted her tales

As though she created them

Just for attention

And the dragons dry her tears

Because she knows they’re real
