Red Sky

This morning we had a red sky,

With silhouetted architecture

Splashed up, reaching to meet

The brightness of dawn.

A sign of warmth hit the earth

On this painfully chilly day. My

Spine ached from the cold, curling

Downward stiff instead of caring for

Proper posture like those silhouetted

Buildings attempting to touch

The pink clouds. I wonder

If I can stretch tall and find comfort

In red sky mornings.
