High in top of the dragonhome tree,
Sleeps a little dragon, a dragon like thee
When the wind blows the dragon will fly
Sleep little lordling, now don’t you cry
– a lullaby sung to Rilvac I, the New King
This week’s piece draws its inspiration from the real world: all of the strange and fantastical plants in the article are more or less based on real world flora. Most of the time I’ve taken very slight poetic license with the plants in question. Sometimes the world is just weird enough.
