Eyesight Readjustment

Sometimes, when all hope seems lost, and you are left there
Staring at this man-made, senseless, chaotic mess.
All you need to do is shift focus, walk further,
Step back. Look beyond the borders of your picture.

Choose a new standpoint, focus on the elements
Move things around as you please. Fly them up and down.
Right and left. Delete, rename, repurpose, replace.

The scattered pieces will all fall back into place,
Rearranged by your newfound sight. Lay back, and
Observe. Soon the world will start making sense again.

    Doesn’t nature have a tendency toward chaos? Sometimes it takes such effort to reverse this and regain control. Your words are inspirational; I love the re-assuring tone and the calm, rich hues of the water and sky. Perfect!

    1. Thank you for seeing so much in my words. I believe nature has a tendency towards chaos. It is creative and ever evolving in ways that can hardly be foretold. I think there is a logic at least behind some of this apparent randomness though – a logic that we can’t always comprehend, as our understanding of its workings is limited.
      Since we are part of nature, I also believe we have this dichotomy weaved in our fabric. We need to allow chaos in to evolve and advance, and then reorganize and thrive around the new elements it is constantly bringing into our lives to make sense of it all. Somehow we always need to make sense of things, or at least I do. Chaos in its pure form would eat me up!


  3. I like your insights and the subtle flow with which you write!:)
