#folktober Today’s day theme is “Mordiford Dragon” who was found, brought up by a young girl called Maud. Unfortunately, adult it gained a taste for livestock and human flesh. Broadening the theme I will feature any dragon poetry/short prose/artworks. Please include an updated, short, third person bio.

folktober – Mordiford Dragon

Only extant picture of dragon on Mordiford Church

Guess what I saw this morning?

There was a dragon
in the valley, curled
like a white cat:
each scale a pearl;
each breath a cloud
of soft white silk –
’til the whole valley
was a bowl of milk –
as the sun brightens
with the coming day,
such dragons fade.

-Sarah Connor
