Dan and I are engaged!

Here are two small stones I wrote on the day of the proposal and the day after.


early evening light―

the pond is aglow.
he asks me to marry him,
the water, diamond, choir of birds,
and my ‘yes’
all in tune and sparkling

like stepping down
into the field,
dressed in orange poppies,
this joy
one day old

  1. Oh my goodness, congratulations! <3Postscript: When I was looking at this post in my news feed, I initially thought that it read, 'by Monet Dan / I are now engaged!'
