Red Dawn

There’s a new dawn breaking red
lighting up the sky,
colouring the clouds
and even the people below.
But the shepherds warn
of stormy weather
following the red
with darker times ahead,
as the red breaks and fragments
out of control,
challenged both by darkness
and the paler tints moving in.
which forces will
pick up the reins
before the red sun sets
at the end of the day.
