Dragon sky

The autumn equinox rushed in

Like a ragged brow across the sky;

Ragged brow

A dragon breathing fire clouds

Of orange and rain.

Dragon

The strange light in the sky

Pulled us up the hill

Dog

To witness the sight of purple turmoil in the sky

In contrast to the calm surface of the lake.

(A few seconds later, the heavens opened

And a gale force wind started blowing

Making us dash for home in a whirlwind

Of laughter and leaves.)

Purple rain

  11. I do like such views. I think it is quite possible that life could exist on a planet that is drab compared with our own. I believe we are very fortunate. Even more so now that we have means to record and show others. Have a duck for luck ,…..(‘)> :-)
