Lorraine Caputo | Red Sky at Morning

I.

The silence of the

departing night is broken

by rooster crows &

grackle song

 

Coconut palm trees

shadowdance in the breeze that

smells of sea

 

Magenta clouds drape

the western mountains like voile

across the sky washed

indigo

 

II.

School of dolphins breaks

the surface of rippling blue-

silver bay

 

Overhead pelicans

fly in a straight line across

the sunset sky pale

peach, pale rose

 

The mountains become

hazed by the rising mist &

late-day heat

 

III.

Scorpio rises

above the horizon with

hundreds of stars in

the pitch sky

 

Pallid blue lightning

pulses to the north as clouds

drift inland

 

Wavering trill of

crickets & steady hum of

cicadas engrave

this new night
