Best Sheena Slootweg-Langkjar Poems

+ Fav Poet


Warm, bright
Giving light to the endless dark
A quiet flicker 
Amid the chaos of this world

Yet it can give in to this craziness
It can grow wild and burn
Consuming everything in its path
Causing much destruction
Eliminating the chaos.

Through this destruction
The world will grow back stronger
Like a broken bone
Recovering from its wounds
Creating new life

And once again
The insanity of the world
Will return.

    Sheena, One of the most popular poets from Canada on this site is Chris Aetchner. Look him up --his work is amazing. I want to personally welcome u and roll out a long velvet carpet..we are a friendly community and hope u will grow thru your writing. I am sponsoring a tongue twister contest for free. It is easy and lots of fun. Check out a few of my silly titled poems for ideas. All the best. Gwendolen
