Listening to NonPrevention

For future reference,
it might be best
if I give up radio listening
when going out
to take a rest
from domestic
and national
and international climate mess.

Arrested gardening yesterday.
We need more mulch
fragrant as a hemlock forest retreat,
we are
and yet become
when in our wildly therapeutic
naturally domesticated
sit together
and stand less adversely apart,
and weed
and mulch sanctuaries.

So, today
I hear with smug dismay,
I’m nearly free enough to say,
MeToo consultants
and angry victims
despair of teaching coaches,
clergy
parents
and not quite legal/moral guardians
how to protect against sexual predation,
with something far short of therapeutic re-education.

This reminds me,
When experts developed anger management
and mortal fear internal administration technique,
They concluded diverse short-term counsel
with lifetime mindfulness training,
mindful multicultural listening
and compassionate restorative justice speaking
up and out for win/win health resolutions
rather than win/lose suboptimal
business as usual
right-hemisphere suppressions.

Kids with mental illness
and substance and physical and soul abuse issues
and pre-natal palsy
and lack of school-based emotional intelligence
(our list goes on without parental mercy),
need not so much touch prevention policy wars
but, yes, much more therapeutic touch enhancement peace
policies for restoring co-impassioned healthy souls
inside and out.

In a run-away win/lose competitive culture,
devouring any memories of win/win interdependent healthy families
and leisurely together wealth
of resiliently nourishing responsive relationships
between adults,
among interdependent adolescent peers,
within old and young regenerations
of compassionate passing together healing time

Preventing win/lose predator harm
relies first
and most robustly
on co-adventuring win/win mutual communication,
transparent invitations into co-empathic change
vulnerable
curious to psychically touch
to listen to
to speak respectfully
and delightedly
with interdependent sacramental regenerations
of every mundane day’s
left cognitive commitment
to healthy right relationship
co-empowering emotive communion
within interdependent Earth.

Restoring justice to adult-child relationships
cannot be primally rooted in punishing past injustices,
unrighteousness,
sins of our Fathers,
furthering retributive punishments,
anger,
fear,
loss,
suffering…

To build a healthier systemic resolution
of our growing epidemic,
feed
and water
and mulch therapeutic touch of voices,
respectful hands,
good health-humored minds,
sore and needy muscles
for optimal Earth regeneration.

Mindful thoughts and behaviors and feelings
cannot grow robustly from autonomous ego identity
but from interdependent eco/ego
outside/inside compassion.
