When Skies Are Blue

When Skies Are Blue

Why is it that when blue are the skies

I see hope in every stranger's eyes?

The sun beats down and nourishes hope

Blossoming within us lets us cope;

Blows out the cobwebs sets depression

On the road to Hell a concession

For being cheerful enjoying life

Without caring about hardship strife

But come the grey skies and dreary cloud

Then happiness is banned not allowed;

Like a plant that suffers from the cold

Upon our faces the smiles then fold;

Depression is mirrored in those eyes

That before showed such joy and surprise.

My son told me that studies have been done which prove that people ARE happier -- or -- less depressed -- when the sun shines.  He said it's because of the 'Vitamin D.'   It does seem to affect my moods -- even tho' I do love a good grey day (easy on the eyes and the emotions -- for me -- and aesthetically appealing! ).  Another of your beautiful poems.  An ocean you are.  Ever full!  --David
