Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Flurries sway on brocade of her pinkish gown
It’s Christmas night, breath rising from fresh lips,
A graceful face looks on as tinsels surround
Bouquet of orchids clutched by fingertips.

She paces a walk down through a chapel aisle,
Rhapsody of carols hums of new life
While he, entranced by rare sight parts a smile
Exchanging oaths so warm, man to bride-wife.

The hallway rouses with cheer and merriment
December groom takes spouse for glides of waltz
And best man toasts, “Jane, don’t nag for the rent ;
Sean, always laugh at her old jokes with applause.”

After chimes for kisses ring, her back turns
Unfurling bouquet of orchids, mid- air
A catch huddled by one whose fate confirms
Same magic of a wedded bliss;  love’s flair!

    So well spoken. Reading your poems makes me realize that I'd do well with rhyme if I had nothing more than what you've presently dismissed or already forgotten.

    My, but you are quite the romantic. I've grown orchids in the past, and was always surprised and pleased that they bloom, as does joy in your poem, at the time that orchids bloom in tropical climes - our winter - examples of stuborness and winter beauty... jack
