It was tough to focus

In the cloudy weather-

Thick condensation

Infused with potent drugs.

The sun shone sallow

Upon thrashing fields

Brown and decayed,

Rustling like nail-scratch

Of a drawn out lecture

On teacher's chalkboard.

And the dragon soared

Beyond confused canvas

Of a rancid pearly hue.

When it breaks through

With deafening roar,

Unleashing from its mouth

Magic floods instead

Of fairytale firestorms

Everything is erased

Into a resurrection of grace

Until the end of days, again

Nice tour of your psyche.
