Your arms around me
My legs around you
Like magnets to steel
We are unable to part
Passion controls us
Until we are united
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

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. …?
