Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


It was almost like a summer ritual To prance along the brightened shores of grain, When balmy trees wafted as usual Aunt Em’s hut glazed nearby lakeside's terrain. Waxed seashells rose like buffed pods on the ground, Dotted and curved, echoing of hummed waves played As we gathered them on coast walks, spellbound The array of tinseled humps were engraved And strung together into bright marble charms. While Aunt and I giggled, skirts fluttered on air Knitting loops as bracelets on tanned forearms, An enchantment draped by August’s fanfare. …I revel now at the trance of seashells’ gifts my childhood heart nestling magic that uplifts!
