Magical Moment 440, "Orange Sky"

I remember my father always forecasting the weather when I was little. He would look outside and say, 
"Red sky at night, sailor's delight. 
Red sky in the morn, sailors be warned."

But I never found out what an orange sky meant. Based on tonight's orange sky and overall evening, I would guess...

Orange sky in the eve
And I shall receive
A fine night out,
Fun without a doubt,
A painted view,
A love so true,
And more blessings than I can count!





(Oh, and if you click to enlarge, you can see the tiny little airplane just above the telephone wires.)

Beautiful sky! I've also heard that a red sky at night brought rain the next day. These little sayings are no less accurate than the professionals.

What a beautiful sky you captured. And I, too, want to hear about the night described in the poem. :)
