My Dreams (Second Part) - Poem by Jacqueline Dougherty

As I stood there looking at its might,
at the corner of my eye, I saw a flash of light.
I looked but saw nothing there,
so I strode up to the castle fair.
Oddly the castle was in a time of peace,
no heavy guard, just calm, quiet peace.
Little did I realize,
this castle was magical, like its enormous size.
The king and queen was Minotaur.
I knew my journey wasn't going to get too far.
King Taurus and Queen Ursa were their names,
as I approached them without my shames.
I found out that I was on a mission
to destroy the king's evil competition.
A shape-shifter, Miss Chievous wanted King Taurus dead,
and I was chosen to destroy her, despite my dread.
A giant sea serpent was my way
to get to her at the edge of the bay.
Therefore, I needed time to think,
and in the gardens, the bright flash came with a wink.
In a clearing, covered in rose petals galore,
was the most breathtaking sight I could explore.
Those weren't bright lights at all!
But majestic unicorns standing proud and tall.
Their horns golden and glowing bright white,
emitting the most fascinating bright light.
I was nervous to be in the presence of their glory,
but I knew this experience would make a good story.
Slowly I reached out to touch the unicorn,
and I fell in love as I touched its golden horn.
We stood there in silence just for a while,
but soon the falling petals began to form a pile.
With tear filled eyes, I said I had to part
but forever I will remember this event inside my heart.
