Treasure Island

The Seduction of Chaos


Swirling winds sweep silently
as detritus is strewn about
in empty space, which can be
penciled on graphs as frenetic apices on parabolas.

Detritus is strewn about
giving the appearance of
chaotic collision,
an illusion in which gravity is invisible,

Giving the appearance of randomness,
like chance encounters,
unlikely couplings of lovers, temporary and tempestuous,
in fits and starts - and methods of madness.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Chaos poem and pantoum combined. First attempt at pantoum. I found it very difficult to write. It required a great deal of attention to detail. I will attempt more of this type of poetry toward improvement.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
