Poem: Threat or Promise




"Red sky at night..."
Waves of dark clouds
rolling across the
sweeping prairie sky.

"...sailors delight..."
I sail down a rain dark
highway, tail lights
blinking red behind me.

"Red sky in morning..."
Rain drops pounding,
sky soaring reds, and
yellows, purple and blue.

"...sailors a warning..."
The night swallows them,
the last painted shades
of an August sunset.
