Dragon's Tail - Poem by Saiom Shriver

by God's mercy it melted away
and the lighter dragon

Poet's Notes about The Poem
Rahu and Ketu are the vedic astrology terms for the north and south nodes of the moon. The north node (dragon's head) is considered one destiny indicator and the south node (dragon's tail) a distillation of past life karma.

This point is at 180 degree distance from the previously mentioned incision point (Rahu) .'
