Resurrecting The Dragon

I discovered the trapped dragon on a cool autumn day in a dry creek.  She could not escape without my help.  I called out the big equipment and climbed carefully down into the unknown to help resurrect this lady.
Stopped in her tracks and trapped here for decades maybe centuries of floods.  Once majestic now worn and polished by time, sand and water.

I carefully placed the logs tongs around her middle and stood by for the big equipment to safely extract her.
 Up she rises, wings 
as if in flight.
Lizzy directed my climb out by cheering me on.
 As the dragon rested I planned safe transport.
While the Man In Charge directed (much like Lizzy)
I hooked my dear dragon for her home journey.
I hooked her again
and again.
 She is airborne! 
Almost home
She lies in wait for me to awaken her magic.

AWESOME~ the one in flight, number 4 i can see that dragon. so what are you going to do with her? i think she is a female dragon. you are really really brave, no way would i go down in that hole you were in.

So I am curious - how will you awaken her magic?
Are you going to carve her out, or paint her on, or just leave her natural knowing she is your little secret?

Not that it's free, it does look like a dragon! I recommend green. Dark green. Always a cool dragon color...

A horned dragon, even. How marvelous! Can't wait to see how you release her magic... told you that croonie stone would allow you to see the fairy world! ;-)

This so cool - to find a dragon - I can see her so clearly...What will you do to honor this dragon? Will you leave her in her natural state or bring out her magic in wondrous color. Please keep us posted. I just LOVE this!!!

Oh, I saw something else too..I'll send you a message...

I love the way you see things of beauty. I can totally see her, arms outstretched, wings in flight...wow, that is ten kinds of awesome. I can't wait to see how she 'matures'.

This dragon is a beautiful find. I am anticipating how you will awaken the beast and give her the best display. Really nice.
