Out of chaos

Out of chaos
came order –

one second,
one puzzle piece

of chaos was
put in order

for a second.
Or: somebody

saw order
in chaos,

a pattern
emerging,

somewhere –
for a second.

Phew, maybe it's in
the space between!

Loved the way you played around the prompt.. and conveyed the remarkable concept of a pattern, emerging.

I loved how your words interchanged, yet it all still made sense. Very clever take on the prompt!

It must be right there in that single second. I really like this one!

Order and chaos...:)

when there is chaos, order is needed, when order reigns, chaos attacks!

a hidden pattern.... ohhh so beautifully subtle..

Nicely done. I like how your poem plays between order and chaos. I think the universe was born out of chaos, yet the laws of physics (as we know them) try to force an order to all things. If only physics worked within the mind.
