SKY

And then it burst into flames

The sky looked surrealistic this afternoon as I gazed out of my bedroom window. It was cloudy, as if about to rain; it was windy, with the icy winds (yes, seems improbable, but there WAS snowfall in Saudi Arabia today and that’s having a ripple effect on Bahrain); and it was dull and dreary, with…
