Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


In waters’ calm leisure, mellow tides drift Along back strides that always find their sway, The lighter blues, the deeper jades, that sift Glimmers of mollusks that twinkle and play. From the swoon of bay when dusk slowly cranes Pewter the wavelets, darker steel the shore; Above, one bold and yellow stripe explores To jiggle in a curdled breeze and spills A frothy crest with waltzes soon to fade Before moon comes in her gathering wade. Notes I hold, on the ocean waves’ last set A gurgling never the same every time That I might grow thirsty and soon forget Salty ripples forming different chirps Never out of waves' hums in dancing flips. Sheri Fresonke Harper's Out Of Water Contest

    This is the most beautiful rendition of the ocean's waves compiled into one write! You expressed the waves so perfectly that I was on the edge of the waters observing the ripples created by small waves rolling into the shore! You've done so awesome with this poem my friend, I am amazed at the extreme perfection you have accomplished with this piece Nette! You've have done masterfully! Great Work!!
