Dragon of the Sea

The Sea Dragon 

Dragon of the sea
veiled in deep mystery
once again you arise
from the abyss of life
traveling on ancient mists
bringing your challenging gifts
and intense life-changing shifts
I welcome you my fierce friend
touched by your presence again

In another life
during shifting tides
I saw a red flicker
in the corner of my eye
you, a dragon
high up in the sky

Under the crescent moon
I was lead by you
through mythical woods
of fast-changing moods
entering a dark cave
speed like a tidal wave
spiraling through the earth
an explosion; a volcano’s birth
Reaching its core
my body aching and sore
it’s hard to believe
what was revealed to me
a piece of the unknown
sitting on its crystal throne
I knew I was about to die
the frequency too high
energy so strong
it wouldn’t take long
before my old life was gone

Some moments
run too deep
the impact too strong
to find words that to them belong
Perhaps some things
are better left untold
allowing the mystery to unfold
It dwells deep inside
where sacred love
and innocence abides
like a magic flame
relieving pain
burning away any chain

For years I wished to find the words to write about a thoroughly unlikely moment humans are not supposed to experience, I nevertheless did. Life was never the same after this and it send me vรญking for several years raiding only for deeper understanding until the day I realized, it can’t be understood nor known… When I looked through my photos from the January storm here on the wild West, the quality somewhat poor, I thought, maybe I can still turn it into something. I looked closer and started seeing images in the sea-spray… and with that came the words after being 7 years on their way.

And then synchronicity strikes and enhances further the call for the words. No one else than Merlin can do this ๐Ÿ˜‰ Let me introduce you to “Merlin Awakes!” by C. P. Singleton a great piece of writing about this timeless myth.

In the timeless everything is on time…

  1. I love the way everything arrives just on time.
    My walk into the Pentland Hills on Monday was a coming together of lots of long chased threads for me ๐Ÿ™‚
    The white deer of sovereignty finally came to rest.
    I love your words and image of the sea dragon


  2. Wow – what an amazing water image – I can definitely see the dragon rearing up and spreading its wings! I started reading Singleton’s first 8 chapters but it looks like a long read thru a lot more chapters…maybe you can let your experience form itself into words and share at some point? And I agree with you: S’s female characters are pretty extreme – either evil or too wimpy! ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Thanks, I had quite the same reaction when I saw it ๐Ÿ™‚
      And to your request, if you mean my own experience, maybe I can, time will show… this is as close I have ever got…
      Oh, yes those female characters are less impressive, particularly the wimpy ones (great word) lol!! You should tell him that ๐Ÿ˜€ !


      • That’s why I think you could do a great job relating the female experience (it is so much harder for guys to do that for us and vice versa). I, too, have a difficult-to-verbalize connection to the Vikings (beyond dressing up as a Valkyrie for Halloween ๐Ÿ™‚ ). As if there’s something in our ancestral memory trying to break through….


  3. beauty is the nymph
    she dabs painted words on the sea foam mist
    her questions reach far and wide
    carried by the roaring tide

    ~ Hanne you have strength in your writing and your art. Enjoy the journey passionate and free to express yourself!
    When I awake each morning I am greeting by the red dragon eye of dawn. I am inspired to write of dragons mine have turned from being fierce to being whimsical – would love to know what you think —> http://dragontailsblog.wordpress.com/


    • wow! Such a beautiful poem, I am moved by it. Thank you for sharing it with me.

      Your words are deeply encouraging, like a subtle wind in my back pushing me gently forwards as I step by step explores the vast inner landscapes whilst listening to what wishes to be expressed. Thank you!
