Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


We still face the test of absolute truth
As creatures of the wild roam on a vast field
The sun burning through their earthy pursuit
Within this mind, a darkened haze concealed.

I watch their shadows, deepening a leer
My fingers grip waiting for the  light of dawn
While mossy scent pervades on woods’ frontier,
Restraining a planned scheme as moon grows long.

Daylight wakes and I seek the open trail
Across the range, a moose nibbles on weeds
It’s curve -like silhouette fine like handrail
Now, desire for prey claims a game sullied.

Then noises ring, and noises ring again
Deafening the echo of silent  glen.

    Beautifully put together and a delight to read . I apologise for my silly poem , Since removed.

    I am at the brink of suspense not knowing what lies in here. A scene, deer, someone who seems to target a prey..Then, the noise. Your images pulsates, Nette. I missed your contest, flew too fast. Till next!

    very nice, Nette. i think the story would have moved forward quite nicely with your sonnet. Yours is so much better than the one i came up with...but I could never hunt, i would fish instead. LOL love and hugs, cate :)
