Gaining Freedom By Kristi Kirby

Gaining freedom and
Patience in the dark
The hero
Carries her sword
Treasured memories flood her
The handler sways in time
Making a difference
Her battle cry
Remembering and concentrating
Moving with her inner child
By her side
At a glance
The sleeping dragon
Awakened by a noise
She gathers her poise
The dragon is quick
Advancing and standing over
The blonde
Her eyes are focused
In the foggy mist
Tasting lightly her lips
She raises the sword
This is it
Now it
She grins.
