#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

Red Sky, Dawn

Red Dawn, Charles River Woods

Red Dawn, Charles River Woods

. . . the reddish glow of the morning or evening sky, caused by haze or clouds related to storms in the region. If the morning skies are red, it is because clear skies over the horizon to the east permit the sun to light the undersides of moisture-bearing clouds.
— Wikipedia
Like a red morn that ever yet betokened,
Wreck to the seaman, tempest to the field,
Sorrow to the shepherds, woe unto the birds,
Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds.
— William Shakespeare
Charlie in the red river dawn on the Charles

Charlie in the red river dawn on the Charles

In a cherry haze of sky

the dogs and I, we trample

lifeless grass – earth is

mud-soft and slopping – to shiver

here, on this dull and dazzling border

between old season and new/

between river, shore and treetops

where, we're keeping

a weather eye open

red sky is warning

of tempest to the field
