Best Nette Onclaud Poems

When Grandpa climbed to meet the sky the prayer beads seemed to delay a night so thin, it can’t deny flushed teardrops washing air in gray. Till darkness sprawled on tilted plate when Grandpa climbed to meet the sky; my anger turned to a debate with heaven; needing a reply. Life bore the wrath of days’ outcry, the tempest rolled on hours that changed When Grandpa climbed to meet the sky; one shadow flashed while clouds assuaged. Till rare star glazed throughout the ground Like an angel soothing my eye his graceful face spoke, “I’m around” when Grandpa climbed to meet the sky.
