My Colby-Sawyer Experience

“My classes stress the interconnectedness of knowledge. A recent Fulbright fellowship provided the opportunity to work with undergraduate and graduate students at Kyoto Seika University in Japan. My teaching at Colby-Sawyer College is enhanced thanks to this experience.”
Fine and Performing Arts Professor Jon Keenan

Dragon Dragon

Dragon, Dragon, ghosting life,
Reaching a breath of fresh red air.

Dragon, Dragon, bubbling dreams,
Emerging from heavy spirit, surface seas.

Dragon, Dragon, of wavy tides,
Seeking spiral green humpback hides.

Dragon, Dragon, you seek the whale,
In mystery seas, the truth unveils.

The Dragon, lonely as an archbishop on
Judgment day,
Swims scales first through mystery
That is sea
Mixed with green.

The Dragon tears creatures from subtle limbs,
And creeps, no conscience,
From barnacle blood
To fresh water
Face spray.

The Dragon destructs on a base of unlove,
And with no hands
Or arms to bend
There can be no construct
Of a hug.

-Sara Dylan Zarett
