Once upon a time

The dragon spoke to the princess in
the gentlest voice he could find.
Softly….Oh so softly he whispered
right into her mind.

The princess listened gladly
she was feeling quite at home
everything was so familiar
(she thought)
looking about her, as he
talked of flying soon
back to the purple moon which
matched his purple wings.
And, then he spoke about his world
and other rare magical
things.

She curled her legs beneath her
but shivered by his side as
the mist’s of time settled
all about
And when he saw that tiny
tremour he lifted up
his wing to fold her within
diminish the trembling
increase the warmth and
keep the coldness
out.

She sighed as he quietly
continued and let
his silent words take her
to the places of her dreams.
To lands where giants and ogres
roam and where…
(it seems without doubt)..
He flies the same skies as
witches with brooms and
with a certain certainty
she knew that humans
reside.

Time passed by….

The sun was falling from
the sky
and soon he had to leave
But the princess was not
saddened
Content….he’d come again.
For ‘she’ is beauty
and ‘he’ …the beast
but they were
mates in soul
…The same.

She knew she need only
whisper his name and
there the dragon would be.

It had been like that
throughout history

Because you see

Dragons live forever and
she too is princess of the fae
and in this story they
share their lives
forever and a
Day.
