Terra Incognita

Gwyneth  Box


Whichever way you look at it
that mountain has to be
a dragon. See the bold curve
of its haunch as it crouches
hackles raised along the skyline.
Pinked by the morning sun
the broad snout tucks
under a crooked wing and snow
webs taloned claws.
You can't escape: each serrated
ridge, each spur and scar
of every mountain range
proclaims the inevitability
of dragons.
