Red Sky in Morning

A change in the weather is sufficient to recreate the world and ourselves.

Red sky in morning, sailors take warning (click photo to enlarge)

It lasted only a few minutes…starting as a flame of orange in the East, then spreading and growing in intensity to become a contrasting backdrop to the black lines of the trees. Within 15 minutes, it started to fade. Sleep late, or sip coffee while glancing at an electronic glow, and you might have missed it. But it foretells a change, one that ancient mariners knew, and one that the amphibians in the pool in the yard will undoubtedly take advantage of this evening.

  1. We saw the amazing sunrise this morning out the back of our house but when we went out the front door we saw something even more amazing! The biggest brightest rainbow I have ever seen stretching right across the sky.
    My daughter had asked me, “What does it mean when the sky is red in the morning?”
    I told her, “Red sky at morning, sailor’s warning.
    Red sky at night, sailor’s delight.”
