R is for Red Sky

Red sky at dawning
Sailors take warning.
Red skies at night
Sailors delight


(Traditional saying)



Denise Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday round 3 has progressed to R. So has the ABC Wednesday Anthology.

Last evening, as I was working at my computer, I glanced outside and my eye was caught by this streak of contrail lighted by a sun about to set. I rushed to get my camera.

Then the sky turned red enough to delight any sailor.
