How a dragon is born


The beginning is a fight

Between the falling cross

Of a bird

And a serpent,

Bent like a bow...

An age-long dispute

Between the strong wings

And the wingless perfidy

Of the earth.

 

The two God's creatures

Fight odiously.

They fight vehemently,

Long,

Hopelessly...

Exchanging blows and wounds

That scare

But don't kill...

 

Finally, they embrace each other.

And they become one.

They fly away together

Up in the blue sky...

A snake with wings.

And a bird with an

Unexpected

Perfidy.

That is how a dragon is born.
