Sahara Sky – A Tanka

sahara sky 2.png

Tinged terracotta

Otherworldly sand-swept skies

Tint the sun burnt red;

The real world sepia-stained

Like an aged photograph.

Another tanka about the meteorological phenomenon of Storm Ophelia back in October. Unfortunately the photo from my phone does not truly portray the eerie yellow-brown darkness of the sky that day, nor the unusual redness of the sun!
