Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


She battles fatigue
by road climbing and painting
bolder palettes splash
on flamed wigs, on glossed canvas…
with punk, outracing mad cells

Monster tissues grow
yet lust for life soothes barbed pain
caroling to stars
and praying 'neath hopeful moon...
“I bless unforgiving C. ”

Past  stage 1, she jousts;
vicious fibers lose the chase
her zest, not anger
conquers lymph nodes' erosion…
scaling roads, painting fresh scenes!


For dear friend Eena who is in remission;
may you live fully!

    Awww, Nette, a beautiful dedication to your friend fighting the dreadful disease. A brave girl indeed. Strength to you both, my friend. Licia :-)

    Playing catch-up here. Gutsy verse overtaking a disease with solid, triumphant images." Caroling to stars" hit me.
