The Dragon Haunting the Mist The dragon haunting the mist, just beyond that gray silk, slips as a cat between unseen trees, and the lazy stones.

I tend to believe, despite its grandeur, it wonders what manner of beast am I, lurking in this place, through the tall grass still wet with morning, humming strange songs. As I, it trembles.

S. Thomas Summers poems are inspired by daydreams, gazing through a window, stepping through a wood. I believe there’s a place where these dreams gently grace reality, making the impossible quite possible, the intangible very tangible. I do my best to visit that place as often as I can.
