Red tornado

Swirls of strawberry and lilac

Swept across the December sky at sunset;

Tornado 2

And then transformed

Into a sizzling, red tornado:

A sky canvas brimming with possibility.

  6. What a striking sky – you get a feeling of both imminent menace from those low lying, heavy clouds as well as a feeling of peace and calm from the gentle colours in the second photo. A mutual friend, Elephant’s Child recently posted a stunning sunrise with vibrant colours that brought to mind Jimmi Hendrix’s famous line “Excuse me while I kiss the sky”. I feel like embracing this sky as well. Fabulous!
