A Shower of Petals,
From the Sky,

A Banquet of Roses,
In Your Arms.

A Stringed Bow,
Dances Over a Violin.

Beautiful Music,
Resounds the Space.

You Kneel,
A Smile Decorates Your Lips,

Out Spill the Words,
“Will you Marry Me?”

An Elegant Black Box,
Appears In Your hand.

A Silver Ring,
Shines from within.

Arms Wrap Around You,
Your Smile Becomes a Grin.


A Beautiful Exclamation,
Fills Your Ears.

Elation Warms Your Heart,
The World Suddenly Perfect.

Roses Still In Your Hands,
You Return the Embrace,
Smiling at the Future,
That Lies Ahead.

This poem was inspired by the “A Word A Day” writing prompt from the “Promptly Written” Publication for February 4th.
