My Annual Losar Poem: Year of the Water Dragon




Year of the Water Dragon

Hail imperial beast
Patient denizen of the underworld
Abiding in the watery abyss
According to tidal lunations
The ebb and flow of necessity
Biding your time beneath the surface
A Loch Ness of ephemeral appearance
Neither here nor there
Until rising at will into the mists of time
To present yourself
At this critical juncture
The Black Era
Honored guest
Master* of wisdom
Manifest perfection

*The Water Dragon Year is Male. Had it been designated Female, I would have written "Mistress."
