Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


My favorite sanctuary is the side porch where I would screen the horizon and
amble around to feel the wonder of this place--- robins trill in the morning ;a garden path leads to rows of flowers and plants. At any given day, the round table and brass chairs act as a breakfast nook, night party lounge ( with its cobblestone floor and collage of lights), and wide-open painting /writing room. Transparent glass hinged on French-style frames hangs above my porch with a bevy of orchids trailing below it.
My alone time to gather my thoughts and awaken all senses refreshes my soul in this abode.

Soft lights glitter through bench on porch As moon carves a flossed line; Words gather to arc hands’ torch On brown pages, reclined. Floral thoughts climb through patio doors Where language reels around The way mist floats like raindrops’ pour Dipping odes wet, I drown.

    I really like your writing sanctuary, Nette...the flowers and the artistic spirit that lies awaiting your charm! In your poem below I like the scene of your floral thots collecting to write in your journal...My writing scene is so completely opposite...unbelievable how peaceful yours is compared to mine...u might get 2 whole words written in my writing zone! :) gwendolen

    hey nette, I haven't been around much lately...this paints such a beautiful scene; you know I like your striking imagery - love "floral thoughts" and "language reels around" - it's nice when language does that, isn't it? :-)

    This is a grandiose thought for a write, a place where one would gently pass time along and enjoy the flow of the Earth! You describe such a serene place my friend, one I would love to visit and bestow my own contributions to the words of your quill! I love to get soaked within your words, you present them so perfectly Nette! What a wonderful poem you have written, i enjoyed it immensely! Great Work!!
