White Egret

Over great jade peaks
white egret arcs over high
slings back around in low swoops.

Azure flurries separate
leave a great dragon fleet
carved from idle cloud drifts.


Over great white peaks
white egret arcs over high
slings by in low sloops.

Through the empty space
of paths carved in limitless azure
dragon fleet races on through.

    I think the second one has a clearer picture making and seems more flowy, it sloops!

    Enjoy the way dragons manage to enter your writings, sooner or later.
    But, egrets beware of SkyRaft’s dragons…
