I blinked and rubbed my eyes,
wondering what I’d seen:
a phantom Dragon,
but that could not be,
that was impossible,
because a Dragon
is a creature
of pure myth,
of fantasy and nothing else
and yet, and yet …

the background  suddenly
got vague  when it appeared,
a flash of heat was felt
when it went by

then it was gone.

I blink end rub my eyes,
can not, will not believe
what had just happened:
a Dragon passing by

impossible
and yet,
and yet ...
