The Twenty Eighth Dream Of The Waiting Prince

Now this morning my Lord told me of his dream of the night before. And he said to me, “My dear scribe, last night as I slept, I dreamt. And in this dream I walked through an obscure forest, which was shrouded in a thick mist. And I followed a trail upon the floor, made of glittering jewels. And the first jewel was as red as the blood of my birth. And the second jewel was as blue as the waters of the world. And the third jewel was as yellow as the light of the day. And the fourth jewel was as green as the leaves upon the trees. And the fifth jewel was as silver as the moon at night. And the sixth jewel was as gold as the crown. And the seventh jewel was as clear as the tears upon my cheeks. And the eighth jewel was as black as the void. After that there were no more.”
