Dream Horse

Last night I dreamt
Of a magical being
The lines of a newborn foal
But sired by a dragon
A coat of iridescent blues
Greens, purples, and golds
With wild shocks
Of black for mane and tail
And a face reminiscent
Of its cousin from the sea
Such a playful creature
Overflowing with youth
And bursting to share it with me
If you should be so lucky
As to encounter this wondrous filly
In an enchanted dream
Whisper to her of me
So that she will remember
To come my way again
And I will return the favor
