Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


the soft expanse of a forest
is warmed by breath of sunlight,
twirls of fresh aureoles ripen
into wildly combed trees,
much like gypsy- red daytime
cradling a sense of hometown innocence
if only to remember one's beginnings..

softly, i lay among a hammock of buds
etched on aisles of moist stones and rocks
and in the wisp of morning's sigh,
i turn into a garment of foliage
not knowing how the wind
can scatter my breath into grains;
to amble in a dance ...till i fall

headlong into the lush of content.

    Nette, everything charlotte said below here is right. I did not understand why you said lush of content. But everything else was so stunningly beautiful, I had to give it first place. Just gorgeous.

    I echo all that has been said below - ethereal and stunning, love that scattering of breath into grains! good luck in the contest (but I don't think you'll need it, should be right up andrea's boulevard!) :)

I am really keen on learning poetic forms, and trying to learn myself through various websites. But please kindly guide me on this aspect. Thanks:)
