Red Sky

“Red sky in the morning, shepherd’s warning”

Well it was not only red, but yellow and purple

I was not warned but looked at it kindly

I saw the colours and dreamt of delight

I sought for comfort and ignored the omen

The sky was right, it always is

It knew the week that laid ahead

It knew the trial I’d overcome

To have my boots nailed to the ground

The moment I see the sky as it appeared

The warning that it perceived.


Thank you for reading.
