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…
