Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Brocade lobes with silver traces creating nature's alchemy pale thread of life it embraces, against chilled dusk's pure scenery. Will wonder's eyes engage and see the beauty of a fallen leaf whose precious moment shines too swift? Or, will it, fading, simply crush this brittle lace from autumn’s gift beneath the pile of burial rush. Skeletal frame this leaf has lain through season’s winds that wore it down till only whittled bones remain, of what was fall’s glow quite renown. Laying on breast of days, its brown skin crumpled from dry crust to foam, to rest in this cycle’s white tomb. Yet some wand lifted it to air lining it in rich-colored chrome to render splendour that was there. Contest of Giorgio V: Impress Me ll by nette onclaud

    I feel such a connection with you through these words. All the things I see in a fallen leaf you have described with such accuracy and beauty. You are a fav poet and this is a fav poem now. SuZ

    Simply beautiful. You bring a dead/dying leaf to life with your words and add beauty to nature's own majesty. I see the picture and the activity that your words paint and describe without tripping over language. The verse flows as freely is the falling leaf itself and allows me to become familiar with the object you describe. Simply beautiful.

    Brilliant write. Such beauty can be found in the smallest of things. I am envious of the way you turn a phrase and take it from mere words to a thing of infinite loveliness
