Post Proposal Poem


a rock
a drop
a hit
of knee

an offer:

a ‘yes!’
‘of course!’
and ‘silly’

the start
the years

a hug
a hold
more tears
and sway

central park
and time
move on
we stay

*Because I know I’m going to have confused relatives asking me what this is about: No, I am not engaged.  But this couple is!  I don’t know their names nor their faces, but I watched their moment unfold in Central Park yesterday.  Congratulations, oh nameless ones!
