Violet sky #writephoto

Sue’s photo prompt this week.


Two little haiku came to mind, both centred around that little rhyme,

“Red sky at night, shepherds delight,
Red sky in the morning, shepherds warning!”

An age-old warning
Sky delivers a message
Be cautious out there

When beauty beckons
Budding photographers come
Risking wet cameras

    Love both and as someone else commented, I too learned it as sailor’s. Interesting how it changes due to location and cultures.

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
