There were dragons in the sky.
Dragons with long flowing tails and eyes like diamonds, dragons with fire on their lips and Chinese names that sounded beautiful.
I wished one would swoop down and take me up, up where I could hear the stars sing.
I stared at them for a long time, sending them telepathic messages that they didn't receive.
Instead, they just hung there, hung there like dreams.
And slowly, they floated away.
Wisp by wisp.
