Red Sky


 Vast oceans of blacks and whites

Seemingly ablaze in absence of color

Gleam brightly under brilliant light

Of a luminescent pale gray moon


A calm surface hides many mysteries

Sea creatures dwelling in the depths

Thriving in shadows of hueless quietude

Silently inhabiting their darkened realm


A threatening sky gives the only pigment

This sinister shade of crimson spells doom

Once a sign of a peaceful sailors journey

Beware thee now, ominous red skies at night
