Sounds like a lizard or a mini dragon
you would have as a pet...
scaly skin, dry breath
and beady eyes,
count slowly to ten
and the eyes open,
count slowly to ten
and the eyes close..
moving from one place to another,
half a life time away..
your minute is his hour..

Little Lucifer
in his glass enclosed house,
decorated with bleached wood,
sand and a small desert plant.

Nope. Not a lizard,
but a brilliant flower.
best, e.

I will never think about Crocosmia in quite the same way again! It will henceforth always be a dragon amongst flowers :D

I think it sounds like the name of an exotic land in a work of fantasy - or possibly science fiction.

Beautifully dragon-like!
