I wrote this a while ago, can't guarantee it's any good, but thought I'd share it anyway.

The Winding Trail

The wind swirls and twirls
the leaves of the trees.
The birds call out to
speak with their acquaintances.
The sky is filled with gray
and heavy clouds filled with rain.
The air feels cool against
the traveler?s skin.
The path winds to and fro
around large trunks of old trees.
The traveler?s breathing speeds up
as she reaches her destination.
A small glen opens up
to the side of her.
The rippling of the creek in the glen
is a soothing and comforting sound to her.
An old oak tree, bigger than
the others and twice as old
beckons her to take a rest
in its welcoming roots.
She settles down to contemplate
what life had put before her.
She sees that
although it looked hard
she realizes that she makes
the journey hard or easy,
based on her decisions.


May dragons bring you wealth
and guard your treasures
May they banish darkness and enlighten you
May female dragons grant you inner power
May the Dragon Queen
neutralize your enemies
May Dragon Spirits
give you power over Elementals
May weather dragons
bring rain at your request
May Ti'amat effect the changes you command
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power

I agree with Urian. Could use a little work to make it flow a little smoother, but really nice visuals there smile.gif
