Gold mine.

There is only one kind of gold mine
the like that makes you rich--

Rich in fascination and
Rich in possibility.

If you need the characteristics--
Since a map is out of the question,

They are as follows:

Look for a sparkling ceiling--insofar as you can see anything,
An inchoate painting of the future in coals--not that you would know,
Feel for a temperature drop,
A lamp that fails to burn.

You will know when you stumble
thinking,
In ambitious misstep how
Possibility would come to you, then
Fascination.
