Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


The landscape of night-time
bulges with rosette vines,
peeping through a collage of hues where
meetings of blooms abide. Almost serene,
I inhabit my soul ready to inhale
the radiance of dusk: of how a world
in my  own inner terrain mirrors
the ceremonials of lilting grass... 
and why this scented instance
can transcend  the  twigs of space, 
of a Hand painting the tempo
of lush sky cerulean and glowing
mixed with holy water and the self, 

as if to bathe crystal eyes washing
icicles of fear. Miles of babel sentences
turn into a different language: unknown
and understood only by my spirit
that finds loveliness in being 
not earth bound, but gliding 
along One Light reflecting the glitter
of grasses inside my tree. Free.

Again, at this moment, this  nearness 
of God bestows a bead of peace 
I meet the sleep more than sleep could keep,

as heaven becomes my only friend.
