Sleeping Dragon

Themes: Force | Possession | Power

Now that I’ve captured the flower queen’s daughter, I can sleep in peace. Everything’s under control.

In a year’s time, I’ll wake and throw my weight around, just to remind everyone who’s in charge.

Then I’ll go back to sleep for another year. In time, people will forget there ever were flowers on the earth. There will be no uprisings of any kind!

Sleeping Dragon in The Flower Queen’s Daughter, Yellow Fairy Book. Illustration by John June, 1744.
