Chaos and Order. #prose and #poetry

Art by Carl Jung.

In the deep cosmic beginning,
Order came from chaos,
And chaos longs to unite with order.
It strikes spitefully when shunned,
And blesses generously when accepted

Inside this soul of mine
Teems the cosmic dance of Chaos and Order
A choice that is not a choice
For while comfort and sanity dwell within structure
The essence of harmony flows truest in freedom

For what is life without Order,
If not a streak of mistakes

Yet what is life with only Order,
If not fragile and mundane

Death
Hope and belief
Miracles
Love and hate
All the emissaries of Chaos –
That defy Order

And yet why must one be at their best, to get the best out of love?
Why does chance come more often to those with ambition?
What draws the best of Chaos to Order,
While its worst plagues all with impunity?

In this soul of mine
The cosmic dance continues
And I fail but I try
To accept the things I can’t control
While embracing the illusion that is ‘Control’

Divinity embodies chaos;
God’s mysterious ways,
Love’s untamed maraud,
Nature’s unfathomable depths,
And karma’s impartial judgement.

Is this why we hold on to faith?
The belief in something greater
The understanding of acceptance
And the hope of defiance
Is it the balance of order and chaos,
That makes a soul truly divine?

Spare me Oh cruel fate!
What must I do to evade the order of destiny –
But embrace the uncertainty of chaos
How must I plot a path through unpredictability
And unite these cosmic forces
For only in their union –
Does my happiness truly bloom.

I was away all of last week, on the final stretch to publishing my upcoming poetry and prose book;
The cover and design part.

The thoughts in this post are entirely my own. I hope to get your thoughts on it too, and I hope you enjoyed it as well.

Stay safe everyone, Stay loving.
I’ll be catching up with your blogs and sites during this week.

    I thought automatically of the song of the Ainur with these lines:

    “In the deep cosmic beginning,
    Order came from chaos,
    And chaos longs to unite with order.
    It strikes spitefully when shunned,
    And blesses generously when accepted”

      Haha, I see you’re nerding up. Welcome πŸ€—
      However, the origins from chaos span a wide variety of beliefs and lore.

    I’ve been a bit consumed by a project I am working on with a friend! We hope to have an announcement soon. I wish you much success with your poetry!! To publish is a wonderful thing πŸ™‚

    I have to laugh just a little bit when I read the word Chaos. I am not the best housekeeper… but there is a gal who wrote a book to help folks who could use some help in this area and for that book Chaos stands for Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome.

    May we all find our divine balance πŸ’–
