The Rock

She sits on “their rock.”
The lake and her flowing chestnut hair

– childhood backdrops

and those of the proposal, here,
six months ago.

Elbows rest on knees; right palm
cradles chin. The other, bare,
drapes casually across her lap

– maturity’s model.

Shadows veil delicate features,
rendering eyes unreadable.
The midday sun catches a spark

in the abyss

like the diamond ring slowly sinking
to the lake’s bottom.
