Riding the wave of life's chaos
it takes much courage and strength
it's helped by much laughter and mirth
and patience is stretched by much length

Chaos it tests one's ability
to be calm in the midst of it all
and learning to flow in the process
opportunity from which not to fall

Having said this it may not be easy
so 'tis best then to be understanding
with all those around you in chaos
as soon maybe your turn for branding

For chaos it really has purpose
as cleansing takes place in its wake
a new order's restored then to live by
the process gets rid of the fake

So with joy ride the wave of life's chaos
and know that the newness it brings
will enhance all of life in the process
and eventually all hearts will sing

------
Love and light
Elizabeth

Humility is rare because to have it you have to want nothing, yet when you have it you get everything.

The following comments are for "RIDING THE WAVE OF CHAOS"
by ElizabethAFeisst

Chaos
Elizabeth,

Have just found your poetry and enjoyed taking a journey through it. Was not sure which one to comment on but this one won over 'Tutlin' Around, though I feel they both have a very similiar message.

As an Operations Manager in a very fast moving and changing industry this poem stands out, as despite what is always apparently change and chaos (driven by me I'm afraid), I try to maintain this approach of 'calm' within my management teams:

"and learning to flow in the process
opportunity from which not to fall"

It is easy for people to be swamped by the 'chaos' and not see an opportunity in every presented problem.

"For chaos it really has purpose
as cleansing takes place in its wake
a new order's restored then to live by
the process gets rid of the fake"

This stanza alone makes it worth while, as long as you are able to understand, guide and direct but most of all, as summed up in your last stanza:

"So with joy ride the wave of life's chaos
and know that the newness it brings
will enhance all of life in the process
and eventually all hearts will sing"

Interesting poetry, interesting poet, loved the one about Laxey Wheel, I wonder whether the combination of New Zealand and the IOM life style has helped to diret your muse. Sometimes I feel that the slower life style has a lot of advantages... or is it just a slower frame of mind???

Look forwared to more of your work,

Have Fun,

Ivor

Thank you Ivor...
for your indepth insights through your own personal experience.... I began writing poetry early in 2005 but I am sure the combination of my life in New Zealand followed by 16 years in Australia and more latterly in Isle of Man have all contributed to my spiritual bent and poetry content... you can check all my poetry online at my website where I share it all... http://www.elizabethafeisst.com

May you be blessed in 2007

Elizabeth
