Rainbows bounce relentlessly
Off a crystalline structure
Off every fracture
And every fissure
Of that precious treasure

Inside the beautiful prism
Preserves a maiden
A remarkable beauty
With a face so dear

So pristine,
That observers tremble in fear
The very moment
That they draw near

As though,
Before them
Stood a forbidden jewel

For the average person
To see

For a Lowly
Commoner’s appraisal

Such otherworldly beauty
So unrivaled
And so pure

Making onlookers want to soar
At the thought of
What else remains in store
In this cavern’s allure

This poem was inspired by a writing prompt from the “Storyteller’s Vault” Publication.
