Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Sitting alone on a chilled mound, 
I miss the tulips in all their fired hues: red,
yellow, bronze, inked blue... soon, arms 
will be wrapped in jackets of  frost inviting
the self to bite on chipped flakes,
while migrant birds and corridors 
of shivering trees melt. 

No butterflies winging or grass fleeting,
All will stand like statues cloaked in white;
I gaze through my days on flamed maps
redesigning my past summer parades;
those exotic, saucy escapades now buried
in graves of dull- powdered vapor.

So now, the blistering wind returns
as Poseidon's heir drapes the wrists
of hunched pines hiding the sun.
 How drab! But come near dusk, the sprigs
beckon a tune delicately relishing luminous
crystals humming through skyline, silver!…
a reflection of flurries pirouetting in a dance,

this, only in the alchemy of pearled winter spell !

    Shivers & goosebumps!!!! Yet, I believe, the vital line in all of this poetic splendor: "All will stand".

    This is a magical write, and unlike many other poets here I look forward to the winter months and this poem rendered this possible by your exquisite writing! I really loved reading this enlightening piece here this evening! What a positively fantastic poem, awesome work! BTW I'm doing pretty well right now, everything went good with the surgery and all! I can't stay up for long periods of time as it is quite sore down there, and my wife won't let me! Thank you for your care and concern, Nette!
