A Bright Sunny Day

Please forgive me if this rhyme does not reason
Then it could just be I am suffering because of this
rainy season. I often wonder why the sun has lost it's
shine, maybe it was like that way back in time.
They say what goes around, comes around but in the
meantime we walk upon muddy ground.
The weather man says it is going to be fine, but does
that mean all the time.
We wake up to hope of a bright sunny day then within a
couple of hours that ball of fire just fades away.
Then all the white fluffy clouds turn to grey and on
comes the rain, to make it another sogging wet day.
I remember the summers when we begged for rain
but begging for the sun has become some what invain.

    I could recommend this poem because there is nothing stylistically wrong with
    it, but I'm not going to because I see no value in this piece. That is a very
    critical and odd thing to say, but it is genuinely what I felt as I read it. It was
    all about the weather. The weather, may be the opposite of poetry. Poets
    take all elements in the weather and try to make something other than the
    weather of them. Historically speaking, this may be the first non-poem ever
    written to be such.
