Lost Treasure

Dreaming of Dragons

Dreaming of Dragons

As I dove in the water not far from the shore
I saw a great treasure spread across the sea floor

I saw rubies and emeralds and trinkets of gold
a carpet of beauty, a sight to behold

They lie in the shallows, reflecting the light
in their midst was massive, most unusual sight

The remains of a dragon, still guarding his hoard
so far from the skies where he once must have soared

Ages ago this was all in a cave
now eroded and covered by water and wave

I surfaced for air, then returned to my dive
as I picked up a gem his eyes came alive!

Startled, I awoke, and I sat up in bed
and pondered the dream that was still in my head

It all seemed so real, the details so clear
my skin was still damp, was it the sea or my fear?

It was then that I noticed, still clutched in my hand
a tiny blue sapphire and a few grains of sand...
