Inferno Untamed

Your arms around me
My legs around you 
Drawn together
Like magnets to steel
We are unable to part
Passion controls us
Enslaves us
Until we are united
One heartbeat
One pulse
Breathing as one...

     A fire breathing dragon
     Consuming all in its path
     Taking all the treasures of life
     To hold forever as its spoils
     Guarding against hatred
     And fiercely protecting
     All it holds dear
     Soaring to heights
     Greater than we can see
     And diving and twirling in the air until

the dragon sleeps now

Unicorns, Mermaid and Dragons, Oh My!

I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s and unicorns were big back then.  I had lots of different figures, cups, mirrors, etc.  To this day I still like them but only have a limited amount of my collection left.  But I find it nice that they have kind of had a resurgence in the last few years.  I have a great niece who is wild about them.

My daughter however chose a different mythical creature to like.  Just after she was born The Little Mermaid came out from Disney.  So she had the mermaid costume, doll, stuffed animal, playsets, etc,  And of course she watch the movie until the tape wore out.

And last by not least is my sister and her daughter who are fans of dragons.  My niece has drawing, figures, stuffed animals, a tattoo, etc.  My sister has the dragon tattoo in common with my niece.

So those are the myths that are a part of my life… what is your favorite mythical creature? Fairies, trolls, centaurs, ogres, giants, phoenix, cyclops, etc. …?
