Our Snowy Engagement

Great peaks rose like the icicles
That were forming on my face
Trudging with my head down
Against the chilled wind’s embrace
Mountain Engagement in Scotland
Feet slipping easily
In the soft bottomless snow
In the haste to reach the top
For sunrise’s merciful glow
Old Man of Storr Snowy Sunrise
On top of our snowy sunrise
I turn to see my love down on one knee
With frozen tears I said yes
And he placed the ring upon me
Engaged on Old Man of Storr, Scotland
With excitement and emotions
We lost interest in landscape capture
And focused on ourselves
In our elated rapture
Engaged in Scotland
Smiling through the pain
Of our limbs frostbitten numb
Excited for our sun-risen future
That has joyfully begun

Engagement on Skye

As if in blessing from the Scotland skies
The snowflakes began to rain
Resting precariously in our hair
As we set down the mountain again
