I awake again with this left-brain thought
that an economic conservative
about balancing his ever expanding budget
looks at my mountainside forest of firs
as a green commodity
for potential exploitation.
Yet when this same conservative
resides in this same fir forest,
now threatened by a large lumbering corporation,
he sees these same trees,
in a win/lose zero-sum value-retention game.
Then I have this right brain passion
that an ego/eco-logically harmonic nondualist,
all about right responsible relationships,
feels and acts with compassion toward these same trees
in this cooperative win/win forest
internally governed by WiseElder firs, regenerative,
from whom we learn
and recommence together, after loss,
in secular/sacred solidarity
of co-passioning seeds
structured to anticipate four-seasoned wealth givers
of Earth’s forested pro-active health care,
robustly optimizing self/other value maintenance.
These reviewed landscapes are not mutually exclusive.
Yet only the last is cooperatively left and right
like ethical truth with aesthetic beauty,
compassion spiritually foresting natural integrity.
