Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Black roses sprawl, to droop, then fade raking tendrils of her attic’s shades; a brief display which glints inked nights only for time’s sake, boughs do parade. How fleeting the luster of stems’ arms, between weeping dusk and chilled sun twigs crack like love's farewell --sad moon, a wish-- the fragrance of bliss gone. She digs mementos; gazing afar perhaps to touch the light of stars, that hide dawn’s lamp from memories instead her eyes reflect more scars. Though pain mocks unbecoming heart a young bough nestles on ground's arc; granting reprieve in place of tears to kindle sparks for dance to start. --------- Night-Dark-Black-Happy Sad Contest of Craig by nette onclaud

    Nette, Wonderful poetry again. I often feel like many of us are grains of sand in a stream and you are that bright golden glimmer (Luster) amongst us and this poem proves it, and like I wrote to Linda-Marie, your title is poetry as well. This poem says so much that it becomes a metaphor for so many feelings that we each can hold in our own way. It would be fun to see analysts like those who tore apart Robert Frost's poems have fun with this-----I'll never tell!!
