'twas a turquoise premonition

sequestered through his dream

that over slates of frozen water

there would safely lay a queen.

Cascading light provided him

A luminescent lime

that reflected arctic pillars

in the darkness of his mind.

she waited, in his presence

which he, couldn't yet- have filled

but, the journey set before him

promised waiting for him still.

So he'd walk until he couldn't

towards the years that took a toll.

Until the day he found himself

   Without a way to go.

And, wept upon a glacier there

The tears did freeze as ice.

The echoes from a sobbing heart

returned his longing cries.

Then he'd wake upon each morning

this king, without a queen.

suffered from a broken heart

And, a reoccurring dream.
