To Grow Peace

To faith communities
and fraternities,
brotherhoods
and sisterhoods
and sororities,
non-profits
pro peaceniks,
cooperative associations

Do not deceive yourselves.
Continuing on a monocultural
dissociated
navel-gazing path
of internal v external
navel v social gazing

Not inter-religious dialogue
about our shared peace
compassion opportunities,
political trust,
economic co-investment
is also not healthy,
not economically
or politically sustainable,
not even safe.

Monocultural silos
like food silos
and academic specialization silos
are not polyculturally
or polypathically
or polyphonically sung orchestrations,
playing preludes
for peaceful
prayerful resilience.

Isolationism
leads to militarism
as surely as inclusive gathering
and regathering
expands our economic
and political communionation

Global consciousness
of what we can, together
hope
and faith and good-humor
for a round encircling public health
and safety agenda.

Sacred silos
are iconic
of patriarchal erections
which are wonderful
but not sufficient
for resilient peaceful fertility,
regenerativity,
reconnection,

Polycultural
multicultural re-ligion
of Earth’s vastly diverse
peak and valley co-immersions.

Do not passively believe
that Sunday morning monocultural apartheid
does not contribute
to weekday despair
depression
dissociation
of polycultural paradise potential

Not utopian,
but an ongoing global
human adventure
in becoming together
healthier and safer
than any one community
nation
continent
ecosystem
bioregion
can become

Worshipping apart
from glorious Gaian
panentheistic integrity

Which cannot deceive ourselves
into remaining in claustrophobic
monocultural marching squares
rather than dancing
in polycultural spiraling circles
of good faith
and humor,
healthy
and safe,
more resiliently peaceful communications
than religiously supremacist
apartheid.
