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.
