Lady of the Lake

On a lake drifting and shifting legs
Lifting a flare that ensnares the night
waters flow below and thoughts fly out of sight
Only images and mirages reflected in the moonlight
streamin in the lake and gleaming of the ripples you make
Make no mistake, a dragon is vast asleep in the dark and steep
while awakening consiousness straightens and leaps from the deep
it flings its wings and clings onto the hopes and slopes you keep
sweeping strong with all its might climbing the night
Only letting go when you stop to fight and ride
spinning down steep into a deep sleep
wakened shaken with tears to weep
