Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


In deep of woods, I sink into pain’s hell
As footsteps grind heavily on lowland calm,
Where a staring raven cannot foretell,
How near or far I'll be from sorrow’s harm.

While flickers of light descend on relay
Hovering on leaves, grim hues still prevail,
Yet, breaths endure the sting from evening’s play
Till clouds devour my gray doubts, I begin to wail.

And as I droop wearily in bent form,
This lifeline succumbs to uncertainty,
That beads of prayer dissolve before dawn
Compounding all fears beneath the wise tree.

Somehow, a dove climbs on my lap, to show
How the moon rises as new flowers glide;
While Heaven awaits starlight's afterglow
Enshrining this moment where peace abides.

    I was warmly immersed in this poem. You enshrine'd it very well. Love that last one about the dove on your lap; they are friendly creatures, indeed.

    Woman, you just changed me into a saint with this majestic poem! From raven to dove; that's mighty transformational. Take a bow!

    Now this is a piece of poetry that grabs me deeply. I like how you express your thoughts with great metaphors, " breaths endure the sting." How profound and inspirational, Nette.

    Imagery is sublime Nette - one day I hope to be able to write as creatively and beautifully as this:-) I particularly love the 4th stanza. Hugs Jan xxx

    Good to see and hear your beautiful grace in words Nette. three beautiful words... in the last stanza...three good Omens... Dove, Moon, Peace... Dove the symbol of the peace it brings.. peace in the joy of just being....As sure as the moon rises like a new flower guides a new day or way. And of course Love enshrines it all in life.
