What Is It?

No diamonds in this treasure chest

No emeralds, no rubies, no gold

What does it contain, this old brass bound trunk?  Is it real?  A solid, physical object?

And if it’s real, is it made of sand that collapses into a pile depending on who touches it?  Is the metal that attaches the parts a illusion?

Is it buried underground or is it up in the sky somewhere?  Does it orbit the sun?

Is it stranded on the moon? On Mars?

Is it the fact that its contents are unknown that makes it such a desired entity?  Who can find it first?  Maybe it’s up a tree.. but which one?  An oak, a maple, a pine?  Who knows?

Maybe we are meant to always be in search?
