this moon rising red

through the dying sunset

setting silver at daybreak

a bridge of light

spanning worlds

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. Not exactly. I was trying to explain light and colour and the sky and what’s in it to someone who had never seen daylight or a clear sky or colours. One of the bridges, I suppose.

    1. It’s a muted daylight, soft and warm. I hope it’s a sign of something, though the climate ructions all over the world don’t bode well. They are having terrible floods in the south of Spain which is normally desert. But, no, we have nothing to reproach ourselves for, it’s just leftist hysteria.
