Day 3 OctPoWriMo
Prompt: Beauty in chaos
Form: Free verse
My country, a kitschy cornucopia of colours,
chaotic and cacophonous, culinary overdose
its confounding confusion adding to its charm
love it or hate it, it touches your soul!
My home, a beautiful perpetual mess
books, food, music strewn all around
with a lived in look predominant
an oasis of calm for all of us, a place that lets us be.
My mind constantly in a churn
scattily jumping from facile to profound
a hundred thoughts chasing each other
some flitting away like butterflies
some I capture with paper and pen.
There are days I find my calm in the eye of the tornado
thriving in the frenzy of ups and downs
the beauty of this life is hidden in its chaos
sometimes order is too ordinary to live by.
