Pink Sky

The Sun glowed pink through the early morning clouds, illuminating the colors in the tree leaves. Like burning coals, the trees shone bright and shimmered in the warm breeze.

“Red in the morning, sailors take warning.” The rain did come, and it occurred to me that the warning that can be seen in the clouds applies only to humans in boats. My creature cousins who live in and on the water are not imperiled by rain.

Today, I will be paying attention to times when ideas of good and bad are reflections only of what is useful and not useful to my human family members.
