Golden Dreams

Gold glittering in the pond beneath me
I reach, try to find, to catch
what dances between
silken fins.

Nothing comes
no touch of light
no silky satisfaction
or even an edge of fin.

Only my eyes can catch
that liquid glister
only my eyes,
my mind.

my heart,
beating quick
beats for that treasure
coalesces all of that gold within me.
