Grey Skies or Blue? - a Poem

John has been writing poetry since his school days. He was awarded the "Best Poet 2014 and 2021" Hubby Awards.


Grey Skies or Blue?

The sky is overcast and grey,

How will that affect my day?

Some say it makes their mood turn blue,

But for me, that isn't true.

Cloudy weather has its charm,

It relaxes me and keeps me calm.

Rainy days just can't be beat,

Welcome respites from the heat.

It's easier to get things done

When you aren't scorched by the blazing sun.

And even if you're stuck indoors,

That suits my work, maybe not yours.


Most love the summer's blue sky days,

Trips to the beach, fun in the waves.

Barbecues and outdoor sport,

Activities that life has taught.

For me, dull days and cloudy skies

Expose traits people try to hide.

They blame the weather for their ire,

Depression, anger, being tired.

But, no matter if it's grey or blue,

How you act is up to you.

Put a smile upon your face,

Treat people well, and act with grace.
