Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


she knits a crochet in early dusk light entangled with threads silver, dangling between pillars near our window how from deep silence, a dome expands like laced doily thickening its pattern... i watch a female spider extend her limbs to connect the dots: waves of frame now thick in fiber, shimmering through a moonlit breeze; her hunchbacked mound circles around while near dawning approaches... and my mind wonders of her need to spin more rows in puffs of hours, sewing and binding a delicate blanket made from loops; somehow, i know what makes her hurry... as time wheezes, silken mother props her bed upon new day's request when egg sacs, her young, peep out toward a gently crocheted, wet earth.

    Nette, I occasionally will wait until what might be a first place to arrive and then try to beat it---but then there is occasion when the bar is too high---this perhaps is one---but do I LOVE the competition!! Per the superlative Nette!!

    ... knitting a silken crotchet. You have a killer of a title! Spiders are a little on the creepy side, but with your poem they seemed rather majestic. I loved your close up of the action on something so incredibly tiny... great work!

    I love the path you detoured us on just by introducing the spider! I had imagined an old lady crocheting on her rocking chair going back and forth in rhythm to each loop and stitch! You wove a delicate weave of mastery with this glorious poem! What a awe inspiring piece, Great Work!!

    Mother Nature, sitting on a rocking chair, singing this lyrical treat for all creation. Spectacular.
