Martha Charmaine Gagnon Spies a Snow Dragon

A true believer can see a snow dragon in this picture.

I saw a dragon a few days ago
When I was outside shovelling snow...
His wings were intricate and powdery white
His body an iridescent pale blue light...
He seemed to float rather than fly
Like an oak leaf falling from the sky...
A little unbalanced and twirling around
Until he eventually reached the ground...
He was just a tiny little being
But I'll never forget the power I was seeing...
As he descended on snowflake wings
With all the magic that he brings...
I was totally mesmerized
And just a little slightly surprised!
The Love he was bringing into this dimension
To assist Mother Earth with her ascension
Was absolutely astounding, to say the least...
This Blessed gift from this tiny beast.


— Martha Charmaine Gagnon


Martha Charmaine Gagnon is a member of a poetry collective from Tweed, Ontario, Canada called The First Tuesday Muse. Akin to the Bar None Group in Barra de Navidad the First Tuesday Muse has published a couple of anthologies since their formation. Martha's poem Snow Dragon is from the group's second anthology, Volume II — An anthology of some of the writers who presented during the second year of First Tuesday Muse, a poetry and spoken word open mic at the Tweedsmuir Tavern in Tweed, Ontario.

Alas, the group is looking for a new venue for 2020. The Dharma Bums of Barra de Navidad wish the First Tuesday Muse all the best in finding a new home. Co-founder Billy Piton is coordinating an international exchange for the first Tuesday of 2020 to bring the two groups together for a night of poetry. To further explore the First Tuesday Muse visit their YouTube channel or their Facebook page for upcoming events.
