The Dragon Tapestries: Weaving magic
This novel is about dragons, time travel and an ancient Celtic mystery. And a love story:) Here’s a short extract…
A creature of Welsh myth shows herself. She is the green of bracken, the bronze of autumn; her eyes reflect the kingfisher’s iridescent flash. A creature of the sun and a reflection of soul fire.
She looks at me. I look at her. I can scarcely believe what I’m seeing, yet an ancient and wiser part of me accepts her as real. Kassa lies calmly beside me, her black tail gently wagging a canine greeting. She’s done her job and shown me the dragon – for that is what this creature is: a Welsh dragon whose power is timeless.
I am aware of the stillness as I sit on warm summer grass on this mountaintop in Wales. She waits. I wait.
“What can I do?” I ask her; it is already obvious who will command here.
The dragon considers: “Time is a river, flowing both ways, renewed in the ocean of space. To travel time is to swim in the waters of eternity.”
Am I hearing those words or just the sense of them? Are we connecting by the communication of ancient times – images, passion and love?
“There is something you must do,” she tells me. “And yes, of course, there’s danger – it’s a quest, isn’t it?” Already, her sense of irony is coming through.
