Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Perhaps when the last bough has sailed away
And I stand here alone on twilight's plea,
I will remember each and every day
When gentle eyes kissed fears so tenderly.

I cherished our seasons through pain or shine
You opened love’s vessel to catch dawn’s tide ,
More than a father, a gift of lifetime
Until night cuddled wisps of your last glide.

A thankful song brings memories’ relief
Defining not what life is all about,
So sing with angels and take flight so brief
And will my wings to climb without a doubt.

This breath now calm on our hometown's lagoon
A journey far where your face lights the moon.

    Splendid writing, Nette. I like the way your father's face "lights the moon" and my favorite line is "You opened love’s vessel to catch dawn’s tide." A beautiful analogy. Congratulations on your win! Love, Carolyn

    Embracing the horizons, holding hands with the winds. No focus on "dreams", but what is in front of them. Very deeply stated here.
