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

Impenetrable
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)
