Bookcase Poetry


(c) Arike van de Water 2007-2009


When the wind is rustling in the leaves so loud it almost deafens, or the world makes a particular sideways manoeuvre that can't be named, this is when I feel the need to write a poem. Sometimes it will come out in a strange shape, like the ones in Experimental, or neatly in fourteen lines, like in Sonnet. Part of my poetry's about times when my faith and my world are out of sync with each other and can be found in Faith. Other times an emotion is a poem's primary theme, so if you want to be saddened, heartened, become dreamy or otherwise emote, go to Mood. Below's all the poems collected, by the way.
