Partly Cloudy

Partly cloudy girls
bring their storms
to Sunday picnics.

Partly cloudy girls
have hailstone
hands to chill the wine.

Partly cloudy girls
toast the s'mores
with hairpin lightning.

Partly cloudy girls
are the rain
from a clear, blue sky.

A series of Kelly lunes for Grace's challenge at Real Toads

Or, of course, Kelli lunes!

I love this. It is so you. It reminds me a little bit of "Animal Girls", one of my favorites of yours.

Phil said...

That is clever. I like your poetry Mama Zen.

TALON said...

Such beautiful imagery, Mama Zen. Partly cloudy girls are as necessary as the sunny variety!

Mary said...

"Partly cloudy girls" is so descriptive. Made me smile.

Kerry O'Connor said...

I love the hailstone hands and the lightning hairpins.. Everything you write is unique.

Susan said...

Partly cloudy girls? what a great idea! I can see them now, fluffy but nonthreatening. After them the rainbow in the clear blue sky!

Ella said...

I see some Practical Magic in your poem or perhaps Story Sister ;D
Love it!

Susie Clevenger said...

Oh those partly cloudy girls carry magic...love it!

Ellecee said...

Your lunes make me smile, these "partly cloudy girls" are wonderful whatever their antics,,

Helen said...

Is partly cloudy girls anything close to slightly bad girls? As always, your poetry jumps off the page ... right into my psyche! A good thing.

Buddah Moskowitz said...

You have a wonderful way with metaphors. Great poem.

Kay L. Davies said...

Like Kerry, I loved the hailstone hands! Your partly cloudy girls are almost as wonderful as you, Kelli. They work fast and to the point.

Ouch, I would not like s'mores from those girls! Your refrain, "Partly cloudy girls," is wonderful. Their name is Legion, and I've known many.

Insightful and delightful. Amy

Lydia said...

Partly cloudy girls! Who but you could have thought of that? Wonderful.

Carol Steel said...

These are so rich and full, so you. You can pack so much into such a short form. Magic bursting out all over. Love them.

You have such a good ear; your rhythm and rhyme are always impeccable.

I love this: "hailstone
hands to chill the wine"
