Fruits of Democratic Spirits

Modern minds,
torn by royalist repressions,
hoped democracy would inhale
and expand
freedom.

Freedom from depressing suppression,
lack of creative tension,
safe expression.

Freedom to invest
in post-feudal farms
and families
for future fresh respiration.

Lost were more indigenous memories
of ancient creature comforts,
democratic tribal humors
rumors
tumors benign
and sometimes malignant,
safe and scary,
significant and sacred.

Indigenous wild minds
worn smooth by felt democratic experience,
shared recreative tensions,
cooperative co-acclimation,
cherished freedom for eco-political integrity
more honorably cooperative
than freedom of competing ego-authority

In 2020 hindsight,
ecological
healthy Earth-relationships
for better democratic trust,
predict honorable
resonant
and resiliently touched
theological experience.
