Elusive Dragons

A dragon graced me with it’s presence as I drove home from work.

It nearly stretched from horizon to horizon.

It was poorly disguised as a cloud.

It’s nostrils, eyes, mouth, head and neck exposed,

clearly seen,

the great body unfurling behind in a continuous white flutter.

I was so awe struck

I pulled over to capture it’s picture, but by the time I stopped it was gone.

It’s absence told by the blue appearing between the separating clouds.

They are such an elusive creature, seemingly impossible to capture.
