Here Be Dragons

Each line is launched
like a ship of old
full of sail
and in the wind,
compass true
it’s course seemingly set
for coasts of gold,
but out alone
upon the high seas
of my imagination
my glass sees only
the featureless foam
of blank pages ahead,
I look at my chart
seeking safe harbour
but read only the legend
“Hic sunt dracones!”
