Poem:

.

the weather has a profound force
one’s moods it does endorse

clouds and rain a feeling of doom
grey and black describing gloom

a calm starry night renders awe
magnified when viewed upon the utah

bright sunlight warms the soul
a creators vision to extol

rainbows and butterflies
smiles, to the eyes a colorful prize

equatorial deserts and muggy rain forest
nice to visit if you are a tourist

beware of the cold , the blizzard
accused of creating the lounge lizard

for those whose winter sports are euphoric
they need to learn the word phantasmagoric*

how to beat the weather blues
time to take a Caribbean/Mediterranean cruise

defeat the weather, put on a happy mood
for being able to put your mind anywhere, have gratitude

*phantasmagoric:  having a fantastic or deceptive appearance,
as something in a dream or created by the imagination.
having the appearance of an optical illusion, especially one
produced by a magic lantern. The Greek word phantasma,
meaning “image,” is the ancestor of phantasmagoric, a word
you can use to describe anything so weird it doesn’t seem real.
