Grey clouds and blue skies
have brought me colour in this month of July.
Talking about the weather
is rather like talking about life.
There are grey skies and storms and heavy rain
which sometimes seem to go on for ever.
when the sun comes out again
we can't help but smile
and notice the flowers
taste a strawberry smoothie
linger in the woods in dappled sunlight
and put on a happy dress.
So if seeing life through rose-coloured glasses
helps us see all the beauty which is around us.
