When I Was Eight

I owned a warm breezed first Spring day
in radiantly refulgent sun
between billowed cumulative clouds
white as sailing sheets
on our vibrating
shaking and tugging cotton clothesline
swaying multi-colored tops
and sun bleached blue jean bottoms.

Like God,
I looked curiously
benignly
warmly down

As industrious ants
with apparently urgent missions
I would never learn how to assign
chewed and sniffed their singular ways
through a forest of shading grass
over dappled shadow soil

Vibrant blades of pointed grass
as tall as trees to ambitious worker ants
sometimes militaristic
but now peacefully recovering
discovering thawed warm roots
of cooperative deep dark Earth.

I could not own a wealthier Spring day
except just now,
at sixes with seven,
often remembering this polished day
and night dreamed moment
beside breeze blown white sailing ships
of sun-scent cotton state
breathing in under first fresh cut lawn
to notice how wee ants live
side-by-side
refurbishing
rubbing up against and with
warm lamped memories

Recreating paths
by imaginatively embodying them
yet again

This first-owned warm Spring breeze
of wistful
divine memory.

DiSpiritual Aches and Pains

I have questions
about spiritual problems
with natural causes.

These questions
themselves
assume a metaphorical double-bind
co-passion in-between
Left with Right hemispheres
in Nature with Spirit bilateral dialogue

Informed, I hope,
by win/win historic experiential roots:

What has “nature v spirit” tension meant
in my life?

What have been my win/win
win/lose
lose/lose experiences
with natural Earth?

How has my relationship with nature
been a solitary
and/or communal
experience?

What are my poems,
music,
choreography,
photographs,
scripture
about nature
that feel meaningful?

How do these communications
separate humanity
from nature
and/or include human beings
becoming compassioned within nature?

In my learned theology
ecology,
are we spirits
or saints
or souls
or divinely inspired supernatural creatures
creations,
wanting to be raptured away from natural Earth?

Is Earth both an exterior natural
and interior spiritual potential
integral Paradise,
an EarthTribally cooperative Garden,
growing both spirit nurturing healthy truth
and nature healing wealthy beauty,
democratic health/wealth trust,
secular/sacred energy
synergetically balancing democracy?

Do I sometimes feel hopeless,
and do I long to be able to feel warmth,
welcome,
and belonging from Earth HerSelf?

Am I often confused and bewildered?
Do I wish I remembered
or knew
what eco/theo-logically harmonic clarity
might feel like?

Do I feel a distrust so deep
that I would need a win/win trust transplant,
a replanting revolution,
in order to ever feel faith
in anything again;
including my own ego/eco-identity?

Do I need acknowledgement of my original mortal life-line,
from win/lose natural beginnings
ending in inevitable loseEgo and loseEarth?
Was mortal self-identity
like a spirit v nature bomb
that destroyed my original win/win promise
born of Earth
and all of win/win rapturous humanity
in each timeless moment
of human nature’s spirited experience?

Do I need absolute guarantees
of win/win protection,
compassioning simplicity,
and restorative peace
reweaving short-term
through long-term
ease?

After engaging this list of self-medications,
does climate resonance,
internally spiritual
and externally natural,
feel lose/lose further apart
or win/win
more cooperatively ego/eco-therapeutic?

Timely Death of a Muse

My muse died today.
Although how could I lose
abuse
or amuse
what was never mine to use
as I see fit,
hear fitness,
feel fitfully?

This muse dies tonight
not from old age
as I had long predicted
must be my sad and unread case,
but for a new voice
or vice,
for deeper lyrics
and wider melodies
and globally local choreography
perhaps a ridiculous younger person’s game.

They say
not to write, unless you must;
Not to paint
or sing
or dance
or become a prostitute
unless you would otherwise eco-bust
ego-lust away this lifeline.

If you can live with something,
most anything, else
to occupy your time
and pay the rent,
then do
and be those more civil relationships instead.

It never occurred to me
perhaps because They didn’t say so,
I might do most everything else
so I could retire into writing
and reading
and singing
and dancing

But not prostitution
because no one would pay
for what I can not give away
with integrity intact.

I miss this muse already
but doubt she even remembers me,
a right hand
useful
responding to her labored demands
too ponderously telling,
psychic yelling,
when I longed to show in grace
integrity’s newest face
rhythm pattern pace
divinely humane race
robustly timeless space
without dissonant disgrace

Showing
not telling,
Belonging
not longing,
Dancing
not marching,
Singing
not shouting
to and with and for
tomorrow’s mute muses,
today’s deaf listeners,
amusing to move on
with overflowing emotions
not mere museless motions.

Now I have broken
my only two rules of unself-conscious writing.

1. Never mention the muse aloud
or dead
for She abhors a nonvacuum
of light,
and

2. Never write
about writing,
For the same non-reason
that optimal sexual
sensual
neural experience
cannot happen
if my sole
and sold-out purpose
is this Great Orgasm.
of we-consciousness.

My more retiring amusement died today.
Although how could I lose
abuse
or ever timelessly muse
what was never mine to use?

Yang/Yin ComPassion

If you are a Zen Buddhist
a Taoist,
where wealthy resonant homology
interdependently co-governs global developing history,
past through WiseElder resilient future,

And homology co-arises pre-born
DNA-nurtured
Win/Win healthy phylogeny
of matriarchally-born Earthlings,

If you are a Zeroist,
or an in-between Zoroastrian,
not asha (1) and not all druj (0) either,

You may know,
and perhaps even over/under-stand,
what it means to your ego
to contemplate regenerative in-between,
thin toward fat,
pregnantly interdependent
contemplative ZeroNest
outside Win/Win Earth-centering
inside still a little twisted EgoCentric Win/Lose
short-term One survivalist,

Which turns out to become
a whole lot more than constricted
and narrow-minded degenerating one-ness
of integrity without mendacity;

Unless by one-ness
your non(not-Zero) Ego
experiences integrity
of inside health
reflecting outside wealth,

A community’s healthiest universal destiny
is rooted in humanity’s wealthiest unitarian integrity

Which, in return,
leaves universal Zeroists with nothing much to say
while busy balancing yang-left
with yin-right co-consciousness
unitarian full blown-out flow

Which, in re-return,
is why Zen Buddhists
don’t have much to breathing teach
in-between the win/win Earth’s
asha and bilaterally not-not win/lose druj
within appalling Apollo/Dionysian
non-sectarian languages

Non-violently communicating outside/inside learning
universal yang-left ego faith regenesis
through yin’s right ecosystemic integrity,

Sung in diminished RightWing straining chords
less monoculturally anthro-centric,
out of harmonic win/win ego/eco-balance,

Which the re-re-returning Universally interdependent revolving Unitarians
seem to never stop talking with and through
freedom from and toward non-violent communion
in-between hyphenated hypothetical
heuristic not-this/not-that
zen-zeroistic
seminal wu-wei
cognitive-emotive confluence

At our best in early spring’s full moon
when outside new born light green buds
and sprouts
appear magically united stars
of ultra-violet bright solidarity
of glowing one-nest
as noticed by zero-ness hearts
seeking beauty dualdark green
ego/eco deeply echoing
divinely humane health/wealth
resilient EarthOrganic brown/black values

In sustainable Zero ZenSouls
remembering Yang/Yin full spectral color
points of original interdependent nourishing light

From and for Holy Matriarchal NewBorn Spirits
with holonic patriarchal Zero Summations
of Earth’s danced asha/durj revolution,

Sung intrinsically
and ZeroZone originally
by health/wealth his(1)/her(0)storic soil,
homological souls
of EarthTime’s win/win evolution.

RiverRocks and Rain

Boulders,
split wide open,
with rounded river-shaped edges,
greet the rain,
their rushing Creator,
everyday re-creating

Fossils
witnessing time’s solidarity
between flowing rivers
and boldly shaped
deforming compassion
for lowest sedated intent,
immortal purposes of flow
yet majestically Progenitive

Transparently vulnerable icons,
open seasons of geologically irrational
time invested
in transporting communion

Like a flowing poem,
a rain-drenched story
voicing well-told resonance

Yet compassion longs to understand
why this structure
and our causal flow
have not only found each other
but have remained together
to this recreating end.

Like river rocks and rain,
perhaps we have no knowable choice
other than acclimating time’s solidarity
of righteous flow and unliberated shape,
spirit representing nature,
relationship suggesting dynamic autonomy becoming
interdependence unveiling healthy equity
wisdom seeking formed understanding
rain shaped river rocks.

Adopting Healthy Muses

In a nutritional communication sense
we are all adopted and adopting muses
by/with the Universe
by/with health v pathology EarthTribe intelligence,
by/with curious and courageous Natural/Spiritual Ego
ZeroZone Centers.

Adoption adds natural integrity
to spiritual dignity
of WinWin cooperative LeftYang-RightYin intent
longing to abide peacefully in green sanctuary communions
of co-responsive love,
transparently deductive persons
with vulnerably inductive health,
with politically transportive freedom to universally empower love
to economically transubstantiate freedom from patriarchal dominance
of LeftBrain disintegrating RightWing aggressions,

CoAdaptive adoptions add divine integrity to humane dignity’s potential
ego/eco-logical re-creolizations
of interdependent nutritional DNA strings
and humanely cooperative enculturing nurture circles,
health waves and nutritionally robust frames,
resonant qualities
and resilient quantities of green carbon-balancing adoptions,
re-adaptions for all EarthTribe’s mutually compassionate re-solutions.

Here with bilateral enthymeming communicators
transporters
WinWin health-sanctuary inviters
conjoining
sojourner sanctuaries past to Now,
adaptions past Now
with not not yet Here
polypathic cooperative adaptions,
Left with Right
eco-unitarian/theo-universal logos/mythos beauty
co-adopting/adapted Muses.

Restoring EarthJustice

How do we get to restoring democratic energy justice
for all EarthTribes?

Especially when those not originally enfranchised
in our GoodHealth Constitutions,
like slaves
like non-patriarchal
non-white
non-anthro
non-ego-centric
non-elite subcultures
advocating for non-violent communication
inside health and outside wealthy green climates
probably don’t feel this is even a restoration
of what was rhetorically said
but never actually embodied,
incarnated in ForeFather’s Original Historical Intent
for health, well-being, wealth of wisdom,
internal/external
spiritual/natural ZeroZone integrity
of prosperity.

NonElite victims, witnesses
to monocultural powers
operating above our lowly legalistic scale
of current political values and opportunities,
Argue we cannot reincarnate
a WholeSystem democracy
that was not originally incarnated

Just as we can never go home again
to that green egalitarian place
that never non-violently communicated
or even historically existed
this side of Paradise.

Just as community organizers
and non-violent communication facilitators,
speaking from too many political
and personal disappointments,
often observe
We cannot cooperatively outcome healthy wealth
without originally compassionately inputing
multicultural wealthy health of positive non-sectarian Trust

Wherein all voices with diverse needs
and feelings
are actively supported to speak
through resilient polypathic co-arising hope
for WinWin opportunities
where LoseLose risks today feel
most internal economic
and external climate ecologically ready
to degenerate
what we really should and could regenerate
back again toward Whole Earth
energetic health generation,
trans-regenerational,
pan-sectarian
polytheistic through mono-ego-atheistic
polypathic resilience
revolving Earth’s nutritional seasons
with historic/herstoric reasons,
reason, ego- and eco-logical solidarity paths,
narrowly, deeply, widely tipping
tap-toeing
slipping-sliding
co-arising
polyphonic DNA health-quality 4D flow resonance.

How and when do we not get to destroy despotic retributive injustice
against all Earth?

All plants,
all ego-ecological binomial people
composed of positive energy democracy
regeneratively intended root DNA health systems,
networks,
revolving global 4D ecofeminist green webs;
Not personally narcissistic,
politically cynical
red-overstated
needy yet unfeeling Walls.
