Aliele and L'azure

Aliele and L’azure

Contemplating the upcoming contest,

I hug the silky neck fur of L’azure

As we soar above the woods to the west

Of our lair in the land of Ali-kabure.

Allo is coasting above to our right.

I’m Aliele and we have been training

For the Dragon’s Harvest Endurance Flight.

L’azure could win if it is not raining.

Although her fur shed rain for a great while,

If it goes on too long, she gets heavy.

She would never give up, it’s not her style.

Cooling down, we rest beside the levy.

Allo shimmers, confident of a win.

His weather-sense was telling him, ‘no rain’.

The small feathered creature said with a spin,

His acrobatics often end in pain.

L’azure and I laugh at his gymnastics.

With tomorrow’s race, we all need our rest,

And no more time for Allo’s little tricks,

We at last head home to our cozy nest.
