According to the online encyclopaedia – Wikipedia – the phrase pathetic fallacy ‘is a literary term for the attributing of human emotion and conduct to all aspects within nature. It is a kind of personification that is found in poetic writing when, for example, clouds seem sullen, when leaves dance, or when rocks seem indifferent.’
I am lying on the sofa looking out of the window at a very bright white sky that is producing torrential, persistent rain.
Pathetic fallacy. 
I feel pathetic… I can put on a bright white shiny smile but i can’t stop the tears – both inwardly and outwardly. I am not sure about the fallacy part. 
It seems grief can show up unexpectedly.. That it can have a sting in its whipping tail and you don’t really know when it will strike. 
I am looking forward to seeing the bright blue skies and sunshine smiles…
