Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


We stand there mumbling side by side, 
so many words that cannot rhyme
no pathway for love to reside,
transparent is the cloak of time.
His  thoughts grow cold that interfere 
with birdsongs through each frozen pause;
that words repeat  but cannot hear
are signs why affection withdraws.

And as we trail of when and where,
the voice of fate calls from behind
misty like the scent of water;
our eyes now heavenly designed
to awaken hope beaming in gold 
as cloudscape spills warm potpourri.
And just before he turns, behold!
He renews our vows of sanctity.

    I love the smell of the air during a rainstorm. The potpourri metophor works very well here.

    Hi Nette! Great one! Scent of Water is really beyond. It can change the mind and the reality of whoever who can savour it.
