Big valley sky — 
Blood and fire,
The crimson of rage,
The carnelian of valor,
The burgundy of passion,
The scarlet of lust — 
The color of my island
Painted in God-strokes
Across the heavens,
Drenching the sky,
Dissolving its blues,
Weeping into the sea,
As once again the day dies,
Giving life to the night.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
