Ruby rain

Purple drama

On the horizon,

Purple drama

Turning into

Ruby rain.

Rain passing

All we can do is stand

Humbled and awed

Before the power of nature.

Red rain

  5. These indeed are jewels, gems from nature. You have hit upon my favorite palette of colors: plums and violets. Since I am a “winter” complexion-wise, these are the colors that look best on me. It’s always worth it to click on your posts, Fiona. Thank you!
