+ Fav Poet


As tangy air swerves through my whistling mind
that gently rouses, oh ‘pon fair moonlight,
I raise my cheeks  to taste the wind, refined 
through quivers, of the ever- threading night. 

And copper-like, my senses, mildly clothed
with fibrils circling traces on warm flesh;
this zephyr cool, guiding a haze provoked
by mystery held by sky’s roll, afresh.

And dusk will print windchimes ’ fore new dawn
while starlit guardian just bids me still. 
My breath thus feed the hours with time reborn 
as tender waft on fleet, sings soft goodwill.

That I, a child of dew, shall testify
as witness to rare embrace of billow’s sigh.

Sonnet In The Wind, Poetess Darkly

    I love your verse and meter. While it is true that I am already partial to Iambic Pentameter, it is the illustrative poetic language that truly makes it come alive. Your poem is alive inside of me. Thank you for sharing, and GRATS on the placement. I would rate you first place. Christopher Thor Britt

    I'm sorry I don't seem to comment much on you these days, nette - it's simply that there is nothing I can say that I haven't already said lots of times before! I continue to be awed by your imagery and the way you bend and manipulate language, and this piece is another fine example of that :)

    An intimate expression of what breathes inside your soul and quill.Words carefully chosen and fashioned together create a strong voice wanting to be heard.I'll have any time of day!
