Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Gazing deep into my eyes, into the dark she offers flowers on threads upon my hands for coins to keep her warm through the night, wondering where else to go from here torn slippers walking along bare streets, past 1am with no exact home to go. I ask her to buy some food, some soup; the 6 year-old girl shakes an unkempt head counting thin bills, dreaming of school without reservation or taste of fear; and her face smiles at the comfort of confiding that a good teacher she raves to be, someday leaving me alone and discontent, my faith in life she dares as I cup the tiny buds sprawling on the ground like trickles of prayer, a hallowed whimper to the gods for one heroine who longs for calmer stars. . ……….. . *in praise of streetchildren who survive each poverty-stricken day to live their dreams by nette onclaud for David William’s Heroes and Heroines 3 june 12

    Hi there, Nette. Well let me first say that your sound of emotion contest had some amazing entries...I will read them all by the end of the day...loved the one on chatter, but I am still making m way down the list. In this poem re: street children, I see how inspiring these determined hardy creatures are to you..Tenacious as leather --gotta appreciate this line..."dreaming of school without reservation or taste of fear"...Magical and bound to turn many heads in David's very cool contest..Cheering this entry on! G.

    Outstanding write dear Nette! It reminds me about the streetchildren I saw when I visited Romania.Sleeping on the sidewalks and some of them even down in the sewer,under the streets..Heart wrenching scenery.Great work here,nette! Hugs and Love,Arild

    Wow, what a powerful and awesome message you have written my friend! It's sad that there are children in this world that are starving with no place to call home! My heart goes out to these children! Thank you for writing this incredible poem! It helps to see that others notice this horrible situation that they live in! Maybe one day we can help them get into a better position to create a way for them to complete their dreams! This is a phenomenal write Nette! Great Work!!

    Without the rhyming lines you are so used to, your poetry acquires a new beauty and becomes easy to understand and its "trickles of prayer" stand out so noticeably with a rare brilliance, huggss, Jag
