Well, I do love this poem. A lot.
What if instead of being 'under the weather' we could just get 'over the weather'?
(Thanks to the lovely Calm Things )
Over the Weather - Naomi Shihab Nye,
We forget about the spaciousness
above the clouds
but it's up there.The sun's up there too.
When words we hear don't fit the day,
when we worry
what we did or didn't do,
what if we close our eyes,
say any word we love
that makes us feel calm,
slip it into the atmosphere
Creamy miles of quiet.
Giant swoop of blue.
