New View of The Dragon in 2012

 

Originally written as a story and metaphor for a young client, this was first published in
my poetry book, ‘Secret Garden of the Soul’, here recreated and revised for 2012, 

the Year of the Water Dragon.

 

Happy Chinese New Year…

    Well, I'm a bit sad the dragon has gone. 

  2. A good, thought provoking read as always Christine :)
    Thanks for sharing and happy Chinese new year.

  3. Peeling back the layers…digging deep to find the true self…this can be applied to life in so many ways. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you Lisa, it’s important for people to be authentic, to be really themselves, rather than wear masks and layers and cover up the beauty of what they truly are. very young children usually have a curiosity, a liveliness, a joie de vivre and exuberance which is evident, but sometimes their circumstances lead to the suppression of this joy, and the ‘system’ can mean that they are stopped – don’t make a noise, don’t ask questions etc etc.

      We need more people to be able to be themselves, unafraid of being human, and seeing beyond the obvious and also knowing how much we don’t know…

  4. It's lovely! And such a beautiful message. You're super talented… thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you Suzanne, I am glad you think it’s lovely. And what a wonderful compliment, writing poetry and poetic prose is something I absolutely love to do, and if it gives pleasure to others as well, then I am doubly blessed. :-)

  5. Fascinating.  What a great story.  Thanks for sharing it!

  6. Beautiful Christine! Innocent and revealing. Reminds me of a reflective piece of crystal that you could simply look at and gain insight from.
