About the Poem

I was walking along the road looking at the most gorgeous sunset, and the idea for this poem came to me, nothing dramatic, just a simple pledge of my love. Well, the simile with red roses was getting cliched!! (that's a joke, but only a partial one!)

Red Sky

As I walked today
I saw black angry clouds,
staring starkly against
a flaming red sky,
and yet I was not afraid
I could see no anger in the sky.

The sky was displaying,
in the way that only it can,
that life, although hard,
has moments of incredible beauty,
without which we would all fade out,
and I thank you for being my red sky.

The red sky I saw,
was not red with anger,
but it was tinged throughout,
with the red of love.
A pure form of sweetness,
that lasts forever.

Ever since I found you,
my whole life has changed,
I see beauty and love wherever I turn.
Maybe it is because you love me so much,
that I become stunned thinking of you,
so that wherever I look, you are there.
