The Diamond – Flash Fiction Senryu

Brilliantly shining
From reflections off the sun
Displays all colors
Are all manifestly
Stunning picking up spectrums
From the world over
On one knee he kneels
Placing it on my finger
Will you marry me
I look at the rock
Mesmerized by its beauty
Tears well in my eyes
He looks on nervous
As he awaits my answer
Praying I say yes
How could I say no
I love him with all my heart
Yes I’ll marry you
Crystalline beauty
Forever on my left hand
Till the day I die
Proposal of a marriage

Like the diamond rock

This piece was written for a flash fiction challenge over at Carrot Ranch. This weeks challenge was to write about “crystalline” in 99 words (no more, no less)
