Green Sanctuary Propositions

Who are you most longing to become?

How we answer this is different for an ancient rooted tree
than for a recent immigrant
searching for a niche of stable self-sufficiency.

Who we already have become together
feels more important to thriving groves of WiseElders
than to adolescent immigrants
actively learning creolizing bilingual skills
still coming together for survival.

So too, offering Sanctuary,
becoming Sanctuary,
inviting Sanctuary,
is rooted in Green complex nutrients
for feeding
and warm wet watering
whispering easier
cozier
more accessible nutrients
for everyone–
but especially appreciated
by more recent emigrants
to a new garden of hospitality,
of multicultural cooperation,
of shared cooperative residence
and patterns of safe,
sometimes exciting, new transport
toward healthiest wealth.

A gardener’s intent
to both offer and share sanctuary
may provoke well-nurtured gratitude
in a recent annual immigrant,
but a more sleepy and self-satisfied entitlement
in mature seniority of perennials,

Yet, primordially feeling and speaking,
we are all immigrants newly becoming together
with each new dawn,
and determined to cooperatively rest
in grateful dreams
with each renewing dusk.

Who are we most belonging
by becoming Green Sanctuary
together?

Some guilds of mutual interest
and investment
invite growing a cooperative sanctuary for food,

Other teams choose cooperatively owned and managed shelter,
gardens,
farms,
transporting cars and trucks
and bikes and horses,

Others focus on cooperatively owned and managed soil,
observing that democratically co-invested compost,
like capital,
recalls healthy savings in a nutritional bank
for cooperative food constituents.

And so it went,
whether Republican or Democrat,
Libertarian or Green,
Who we want to become together
is more cooperatively resilient,
more robustly compassionate
and co-empowering,
so less aloof
alone
smug and self-satisfied
about our competitive win/lose economic
and partisan histories of colonization;

When, truth become remembered,
we are all reborn naked
and needy
immigrants.

Designing Healthier Democracy

Green democratic design,
like PermaCulture Design,
intends polyculturally resilient nutritional outcomes
for global, as for local, interdependently co-attracted ecosystems
composed, in designing part,
of social-ego communication networks.

Nutritionally attractive outcomes,
and not so much toxically extractive capital incomes,
are naturally and spiritually favored by democratic energy co-investors,

Including,
more recently,
AgriCulture’s capital investments in extracting nutrients without replacing,
harvesting forests without planting,
maintaining,
mutually nourishing multicultural saplings,
now sadly recognized as monocultural
unattractive Business As Usual
leading to toxic fading
fragmenting
global and local sustainable extended energy-family incomes
shrinking future Earth resilience
to feed corporate short-term strangling wealth,
capital-infested.

PermaCulture Design,
like democratic energy of attraction redesigns
for resolving kleptocratic energy of extraction undesign,
like nondualistic indigenous wisdom of a win/win GoldenRule child,
may distinguish,
but would never divide,
as capitalism does,
organic forest health
from permacultural everybody wealth.

Stalked by August Trees

Every time I change directions
lately, and possibly beforely,
Trees stand by to mentor
and nurture,
to feed with branched hands
to bleed when uprooted
from aptic past centuries
of hibernating winter naps.

Trees of original pheromone attraction,
August spawned
like Taurus colonizing crabgrass
embedded in deep horticultural learning root systems
self-with-other cooperative matriarchal
reverse-hierarchical
healthcare.

I’m driving my deep royal blue truck
without 1.5 tons of empty ideas
about why we tell each other we hope to plant trees
and edible urban goodnews landscapes.

And why deeper resilience
might invite us to think more extended family
about locally edible preferences for foragers
of all healthy species,
edible and humanely divinely ornamental.

Nor why merely WinWin ornamental undervalued lives
rather than Win/Lose edible and commodified deaths
bring more or less longterm health-resilient values
for unhungry people
and rapid but not rabid rabbits
and self-satisfied maternal turtles
and bedded oysters
and slow-grown snails
and sleek blue herons,
just because they too
can appear deep royal blue
when standing studying wet
nutritional environments
under a canopy
of May raining births and bursts
of pheromone coming leaves.

Why do healthy MotherTrees,
edibly and ornamentally developing,
cooperatively co-managing multicultural Trust with Beauty,
lust for a diversely wealthy woodland?
Responding to August pheromones
with healthy diastatic climax
here near our urban queered Thames River,
formerly Shetucket from the north and east,
and frantic Yantic
to those Western First TreeNation shored.

I remember driving
toward a first-time rendezvous
with another TaurusBrother,
deep royal purple
from early August sun
beneath picnic tabled shade trees.

Wearing broad branched shoulders
Armaments extending his Taurus pheromones
well beyond his white wife-beater
understory.
If not in heated August,
Would he still be my shade tree husband,
mentor of Win/Lose nature v spirit detachments
disassociations
half a well-branched tree story
without valuing rich deep ornamental August roots?

I want to plant fruit
and nut
and date trees,
and edible oyster
and clam
and turtle
and river-watered healthy habitat
because I am a more ornamentally interesting
and edibly invested tree of Taurus confidence
when planting and watching,
with authorized RightBrain WinWin gratitude,
graceful Trees of multiregenerational
sacred ecological
cooperative tree-rooted
August pheromone life.

Returning from an Urban Agriculture
cooperative conversation
about why we hope to heal
our jonesing
almost August souls
planting and caring for young growing Trees
seduced into reborn leaving life
by May becoming rich soil
and climate atmospheric pheromones.

WinWin Trees
and seasonally revolving pheromones.
I suppose these are why
I choose planting edible trees
with fellow ornamental minds
as these healthy WiseElders
planted RightBrain sacred wealth-inviting climates
reforesting Left/Right branching deep rich Green
August climaxing pheromones.

Trees WiseElder cared for my original farmhouse home,
oak and fir and maple
surrounding
shaded August rutting adolescent heat

Driving home
to my favorite stalking Trees
in my deep royal blue,
with WinWin green resilient interior,
August pheromanic Truck.
