May 10, 6:15 PM., the sky floodlights of color,
red rose and yellow marsh marigold and daffodil,
and then the cloud works fill themselves with a weight in water
thickening into an ocean storm, turbulent and graying,
large waves with a litter of whitewash and misty smoke.
Everything darkens, but still no rain, no breath of strong wind,
and within a sudden lurch of color and rising pressure,
cloud caves open, dark blues and purples swim into their openings.
Still no rain, no wind, only the soft caress of a breeze cooling the air
and in the western horizon a splash of pink with a tint of red.
Night falls. The moon exposes the shadowed light outlining its face.

editors note:

Red sky at night… – mh clay
