Seasons have changed
Leaves turned, and so much has transitioned.
As I sit here basking in the setting sun
I wonder where all world’s time has gone.
Independence day was Friday
& I awoke to Nicholas telling me to step onto the balcony
& watch the sun rise, because it was to be our first firework.
For those that do not know, Nick and I have been together
for a little over a year now. We spent grade school together.
We’ve shared many spontaneous, spirited, & surreal experiences.
I stepped out onto the balcony
It was a chilly morning, so I grabbed my robe.
The sun began to rise.
With the rise of the sun came the rise of his arm from behind me
holding a little black velvet box with an Engagement ring nestled between two lips.
His words in Polish: “my beloved sunflower”
Then in English: “This is where it all began”
“& I love you, will you marry me?”
Nicholas asked for my hand.
We stood celebrating the beautiful beginning to a new chapter.
Suddenly it wasn’t so cold anymore
I didn’t want to go back to bed.
I wanted to stay embraced between the sun, and my Nick.
The crisp air filling the gaps, & wishing us a future of success & happiness.
All is well & transitioned.
