Forgotten Treasure

Imagine forgotten treasure
far from the shore,
scattered across smooth sand
deep on the ocean floor …
silver boxes,
precious gems,
bars of gold,
earthen jars,
pirates’ chests,
all from days of old.
A treasure trove of mystery.
A lock without a key.
Hopes, dreams, stories,
hidden beneath the sea.
