SkyWatch - Rainbow in the flames


The evening sky a sheet of flame in the East


some gentle colours in the North


dark smoky clouds lashed with flame 
in the West


Back to the fading colour in the East
where the rainbow still persists


 as the sinking sun paints gold and red
on the clouds in the West


sorry I have been absent for so long
life can at times be full of the unexpected.

  1. Hi Arija, did you have another fire? I've also been "scarce" on Blogger due to leaving Tanzania for South Africa. I hope you're keeping well. Blessings, Jo

  3. A rainbow and a sunset at the same time. It ought to happen frequently, but I can't recall ever having witnessed it, though both sunsets and rainbows are less frequent in our cloudy skies.

  6. Oh I hope that things are more settled now for you. You manage to keep a wonderfully upbeat spirit and have reminded me that I need to also many times over the years. I don't know how you remembered my birthday. My sister asked me how old I was and I said 59. She said she was glad that she is 4 years younger. LOL.. Thank you my dear friend....Much Love...Michelle

  8. The peachy colored sky is my favorite sky of all. And what a bonus to get that color with a rainbow. I hope you are OK and I hope that smoky sky is not a sign of approaching danger. Take care.
