Dragons

© more by Ted L Glines

Published: September 2008

In my little airplane
flying way up high,
zooming  through the lands of clouds
so white and grand and high,
I fly the cloudy canyons,
swoop  and climb each fluffy peak,
as  the angels gild with lightning
the misty mysteries I seek,
but best of all, the deep blue caves,
the greatest thrill they give,
gliding, turning, deep inside,
for here -- the dragons live,
and when I come back down to earth,
I never say a thing,
they'd  be so vexed and jealous
'cause I've heard the dragons sing.

ABOUT THE POET:

Ted L Glines has been writing since 1965, mostly rhyming verse and song lyrics, along with some free verse and prose. In the beginning years, most of his works were activist oriented and connected to the "freedom of speech" movement, with many poems published in college literary magazines and the "underground" free press (Village Voice, etc.). Having somewhat mellowed out in later years, Ted's works now lean more toward entertainment and humor. Major influences have been Edgar Allan Poe, Jack London, Patty Burkeen, Silvia Plath, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Wendy Baral Cooper, Shakespeare, H. P. Lovecraft, and Paul Simon. Currently residing in rural east Texas after escaping the battleground of southern California. Peace is good. Ted L Glines passed away in December of 2011.
