An Overcast Bear Hug

An overcast sky looks like it holds secrets that it is busting at the seams to tell. It’s waiting for just the right moment.

The sun has hidden away, finished with its work for the day and the overjoyed clouds fill the sky. They are thick, gray, and heavy like a blanket covering everything protectively.

Under the clouds, a slight breeze moves the trees and cools the air after a humid day.

Some days a bright afternoon is relaxing and some days, like today, a gray sky feels like a bear hug.
