from the gargantuan roar,
sending birds scrambling,
shrieking their fear into the sky.
On the forest floor
men in polished,
mirror bright armor
raise their shields and spears,
sealing their fear

Breathing in an enormous heave,
the dragon illuminates
the fading twilight
with a fiery tempest,
cooking the human war party
within their shining armor.
