"Red sky at night, sailor's delight. Red sky in morning, sailor's warning." Does it mean the same for the land-bound? A foretelling of dangers to come? A sky alight with fire Cinematic. Majestic. We are awestruck Too wrapt in its beauty to consider the warning Insidious tendrils skirt the perimeter Unseen But its eerie presence is felt In slight prickles along your scalp Subtle goosebumps on your skin The disquieting stir in your belly Too late, we realize, A storm is coming Take heed
Red Sky at Dawn
Back on the train, on my morning commute and what do I see?
New thoughts on an old adage.

“‘Insideous tendrils skirt the perimeter” I love this use of words.
