Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


In one quick flash, while humankind rests
poisoned rain devours, seething like burnt fume...
that all the world like raged Babylon screams

when Fourth Horseman, on a knifed eve, descends
shrouded by darkness, rider now earthbound
collapsing stars and trees on ghastly stead,

lungs haemorrhage in terror of night’s tide
found in Revelations once prophesized...
hoofs trample burnt flesh , spiked by death’s revenge

a time destined...a  quest for greedy blood
that in roar of voices,  church bells freeze tolls.
Divine One looks at His creatures, pleas from souls;

Mad horseman gallops away as Light spins
unto earth,  promise of fresh beginnings.

Apocalypse Rising Contest of Poetess Darkly

    All the lines, esp. the ones in the 2nd stanza, are pulsating vigorously with power. After the last frame has passed it made me crave for a sequel!!! :o

    Fourth Horseman and Revelations; potent hints of a world ending. It hits hard, slams into you, then softens the blow in the end. Wonderfully penned.
