I was born in the Year of the Dragon

A Look at the Dragon Totem Meanings

A Dragon totem is one of the most powerful totems, representing a huge range of qualities, emotions, and traits. When Dragons come to us, it could mean many things.
The most common message a Dragon totem carry to us is a need for strength, courage, and fortitude. Dragons are also messengers of balance, and magic - encouraging us to tap into our psychic nature and see the world through the eyes of mystery and wonder.
More specifically, Dragons are the embodiment of primordial power - the ultimate ruler of all the elements. This is because the Dragon is the master of all the elements: Fire, Water, Earth, and Wind.
As a totem, the Dragon serves as a powerful guardian and guide. Encourage communication with your Dragon, and acknowledge your Dragon's presence as often as possible.

You Shelter Me

For my Father's 87th Birthday. 
(He loves Africa.)

Like the solitary African tree on the plains of the Serengeti, you have sheltered me. Within your branches I have sought comfort.

Like the tree which is an oasis from the burning sun, so you are the calming force which reaches out and soothes my fears.

Like the tree which gives its fruit and leaves to the wildlife around it, so also have you given of yourself to nurture me.

Like the animals that gather beneath the tree during the monsoons, the storm may rage about me, but I will stand steadfast in the lee of your trunk and I will survive with you to protect me.

Reaching for the Sky

As the whale breaches toward the sky
His massive bulk extended,
Could it be he secretly wants to fly,
As the ruler of the deep he's not contented?

We all think of whales as gentle giants,
Contented with their lot,
Being strong, impressive and reliant,
But what, my friend, if they are not?

Perhaps they have dreams of better things,
Like us, some long to fly,
So they, with their fins, pray for wings,
And make valiant efforts toward the sky.
