Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


While granules from past season’s flakes thaw the impatience of my own caprice amidst the restlessness of mid-winter, clay gathers new fragrance of tangy moss. Back at one, infant stars bequeath light upon clouds resting on a drape of reverie, the music of firstborn days stirring the wake of garnet’s ardour with time’s new dial--- a little fiery perhaps---as opposed to the acrid taste of a cycle’s old debris. My January, you cuddle the balm of my fortitude in your arms streaked with breathing hope, to nurse the fertile seeds of renewal with ovules so despicably beautiful that moonlit fireworks glaze steadily on night’s eyes, grounding my balance with acceptance that trials and love come from same flame: how this moment must be relished in praise of fresh dowry… Call me home instead and warm my skin as I roam with you, my January, fulfilling my quest’s return to a patient self... the kind which blesses fire and ice.

    Your January has a deep, reflective feel, like clearing the weeds and building a strong strand of hope at the end. Take a bow for delivering an excellent, fully-lit piece!

    "The fertile seeds of renewal with ovules so despicably beautiful"...astounding lines. Riveting emotion & impact on the eyes & soul. Not really a big surprise, though, coming from you. True story. ;-)
