Crimson Passion

Red sky at night, 
Fire in the clouds,
Sailors delight
So it's been told.
A sunset horizon
With bright crimson lips
And flashing blue eyes
And a rum drink to sip.
But the color that blushes
From your face as you scold
Is the crimson of passion
In the night that's foretold...

    My dad was in the navy. I recall one of his all time quotes was "red skies at night, sailor's delight"... Love the elements in the poem. Very colorful with your great and unique imagery.
