Roots and Blossoms

Earth’s organic systems wonder
if both of these could be true:

Poverty and ignorance breed violence.
Capitalism and patriarchalism feed conflict.

If so,
is the first
or the second
history’s enculturing root system?

And is the Other
our competitively threatening
viral blossom of oppression?

And EarthMother wonders
if natural empowering
is also spiritual enlightening
cooperative Wisdom
inviting humane peace,
less dissonant debate praxis
preferring to invest
in more resilient dialogue practice
instead.

In dialogue with Monica Sharma’s “Radical Transformational Leadership: Strategic Action for Change Agents,” p. 13.
