The Old Lady's Treasure

As she sleeps, life's segments are reclaimed through transparent dreams. In loving arms her nascent beauty glows lovely as a pearl. Childhood sparkles with innocence brilliant as a diamond. Adolescence swirls with self-discovery iridescent as an opal. Adulthood radiates with passion vibrant as a ruby. Maturity unites strength and elegance majestic as a sapphire. Old age bestows wisdom and leisure regal as an emerald. Precious gems in her gilded jewel box she bequeaths them with love.
