grammar /tense issue

    Hi I was just wondering if there's a name for this tense:

    egs. "the ground was rocky" / "the sky is blue" / "it will rain"
    Just a simple sentence without any personal pronouns. Those examples are obviously past, present, and future, but I want to know if there's a simple word or term for the kind of language that is robotic or without I's or we's etc.

    ANy help would be appreciated (even this sentence "any help would be appreciated" fits into the same category I'm trying to describe...)
