Theme: My Favorite Stories in Haiku
For D I do not have a specific story in mind. However, I look to Le Guin, Tolkien, Martin, Rowling, Paolini, Cowell, and Maas and so many others for the legends, stories, and tales of the great magical beast – the dragon.
Dragons make reading fantasy a glorious adventure. They are magical, menacing, mystical and mesmerizing. They are a terror and they are heroic. They are destructive, ageless and life giving. Dragons are portrayed throughout cultures and literature in innumerable ways. Without a doubt they are my all time favorite magical creature. My spirit animal, patronis, familiar, guide, or what have you, a dragon. And so, without further ado, I give you:
Creatures of great lore.
Colorful scales of magic.
Wings that ride the wind.
