Lorraine Caputo | Red Sky at Morning


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




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



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
