Red Sky

I think this composition is simple but quite effective. The dark branches against the lighter background make a rather dramatic effect. And the slight touches of blue really make it work.⁠


Red Sky⁠

"The sky dyes itself red⁠
And the swiftly moving clouds⁠
Reflect a soft warm hue.⁠
The branches that rise⁠
Into this crimson sky⁠
Almost seem to fade⁠
Into a mere shadow of themselves⁠
And the buds they bear⁠
In this moment don’t need to bloom⁠
As their grace outstand even that ⁠
Of the flowers they’ll become."⁠
