“Beware the sleeping dragon. For when she awakes the earth will shake.”   Winston Churchill (speaking about China)


Breathe That Fire Again

Elements of life
we simply forget
or want to,
the water under
an abridged life,
coded tapestry of
joy and disappointment,
yet one wisp of song and
a flood of vignettes
sometimes we must
poke the sleeping dragon
and breathe that fire again.
