Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Yesterday, snapshots of life framed the sky All past timelines refilling mind’s pages; My chapters from youth’s byways lingered, when Troubles of identity reached a sharp peak. They Seemed to question a need to conform, but So undaunted was I to be my own imprint. Far the miles my feet wished for something else, Away from usual paths in need of new quests. Now, I listen to spirit enlightening my days It cradles a stillness borne out of reflection. Looks like the rebel within has withered As I embrace the beauty of today’s mellowing. Though rough winds trigger anticipation They're washed by night’s reckoning; Here in a space of tenderness, I listen To the rhythm of moon bouncing: paced twirls Stay within my center with ease and compassion. Oh snapshots drift as mere apparitions; I enter light’s arc blazing, while fluid instincts Believe the past has forged a sense of rebirth. In calm acceptance, my heart cherishes this wisdom; Yesterday brought forth the deliverance of my soul. Yesterday's Acrostic Contest by nette onclaud

    Excellent poem Nette. It doesn't completely reflect the sense of regret embodied in the Beatles song, which is what I was looking for. I don't know if you want the song words to be hidden or not, but a left justification would make them stand out more than centering. Congratulations!

    I love the soft feel of this one you brought with the words; stillness, mellow, lingering...It gives the feel of looking at snapshots in black and white or sepia tones.
