Vanilla Sky

Pink Sky – Sydney, Australia
The photo was captured in November last year. The sky often turns into a deep shade of pink after rain in the evening.

For many weeks I have been trying to write a poem based on the picture. My baby often wakes up twice at night and then I find it hard to go back to sleep. I literally wrote this in those moments between waking and sleeping. Yup, I have turned into a 3 am poet. 😀 It’s funny sometimes, I would wake up in the morning and find a hundred ideas added in my notes app.
