Another Storm

Another storm threatens to come in,
feeling my responsibility
for uncaring
and unresponsive history

Fearing you
more than loving us

Setting out your pails
and plastic tubs
to catch cold
and dreary drips

Impaled remembering
past wet enemies
becoming darker spots
as moisture threatens,
building mold untold
as yet
by angry lips

Dripping windowed frames
and ceiling fixtures
of your felt losses
not equally carried
by more comforted me
opaque with tender crosses

Buried
in how lonely
love can feel
hidden in Earth’s evolving top,
improbable to see

Our together threatening
leaky roof may drown,
which you would have fixed
some months ago,
if you could do so
on your own.

This storm pauses
and brighter rays suggest
a sun still shining
behind dark uncivil distress

Clouds could uncover
our disassociation,
poor and hovering
coveting a sun-drenched nation

Calculating our cost in cash,
but not in minds and bodies
to stop stormy smothers
of inside raining
draining issues,
deep core tissues
thundering crash

Warning we must get this done
before another wild wet storm
fearing you
more than loving us,
undone

Darker clouds build to leak again
while I explain why
you still can’t trust me
to invest in unstormed peace

A contenting roof
unconditionally done

So all EarthTribe
can safely put away our pails
and nails,
defensive weapons,
buckets,
overflowing pans
and spans of climate panic

Now rumbling receding thunder
of fearing you
more than loving us

Turns toward replacing damaged health,
repriming stains repainting wealth
of more warmly wild respect
while together musing
about who is bare surviving
and is not thriving
with what prestorming care,

Remembering who is dry
and fair
and prosperous
and why
we fear this tragic storm
more than loving weathered warm.

The Mural Project

Education Secretary Ellen,

Some of us
on the EarthCare Team
and also the Transport Solutions Committee
for special projects
are wondering
and, frankly, hoping

Your green STEAM students
and teachers
might research,
design,
and help residents paint
a historically accurate
AND polyculturally exquisite
series of murals

On our two-tiered
upper, more transcendently hopeful,
and lower, more historically faithful,
retaining walls

After our crumbling concrete parking pads
and steel-framed industrial artifacts
are hauled away
with respect and gratitude
for future repurposing

Our Transport Solutions
and EarthCare Elders
hope to use this transitional moment
to divert water runoff
to north and south bermed
and graceful descent
down toward our sacred RiverGaia,
rather than continuing to run
race
to disgrace our wet unhealthy basement

Thereby diverting soiled water stains
from historic runoff narrative face
retaining walled epic paintings,
perhaps combined with etching,
to tell a true and beautiful tale
about this sacred place
where we live
and work,
garden
and enjoy our EarthCare classroom
residence,
inside and outside

As did indigenously wise
Elders before us

And RiverGaia
learned Her future shape and flow
from ancient predative
cold
relentless icey white glaciers,

As will future natural construction
and deconstruction regenerators,
Thermal students
of green STEAM polyculturing Elders,
including co-invested us

Learning new Truth
and old Beauty Stories

Of how EarthCare givers
and health-care receivers
survived mistrust
to compassionately,
nonviolently
exquisitly thrive together
more better
than apart.

Witnesses to Earth’s Wedding

We
richly green mountains
of germinating
Jeremiah prophetic strength

Before we formed you
in our valleyed womb,
we knew you

Before you came to life
rebirthed
we consecrated your humane species

We witness your
polycultured prophecy
to Earth’s linguistic continents

We transubstantiate
and thereby bless
this sacred grace
taking late summer’s place
in cooperative ecofeminist space

Beyond merely humane reflections
back upon our ancient organic roots
and verdant face

Resisting degreening States
of monocultural disgrace,

Restoring humane humility
before and after
our primal longing
for deeply resonant
resilient co-gravitation

Stronging for a safe
and healthy
Holy Pinnacled
panentheistic race
toward our more therapeutic
rivered valleys

Away from terrifying
mountainous
overwhelming
disenchanted layered stacks
of inhumane trauma,
undivine disgrace.

We witness
this polyculturing faith
in lucid
limned Lucian integrity
undisplaced

Harboring this grass mowed meadow
in-between luminous
latticed fertile mountains
interpenetrating sensory valleys
flowing out
down deep
root systems,
family networks,
Earthly primal grace

Longing to complete
what Father Sun’s enlightenment
celebrates

Witnessing MotherEarth’s
richly responsible respect
uneffaced

ConCelebrating Earth’s matrimonial majesty
co-habitating late summer’s holy
co-empathic witness
of eternal
sacramental weddings

Formed in mountainous wombs
passionately repurposed
played and danced
sung through spoken words
wedding webbed time
unreplaced
in sacred witness space.

Healing With Ivy

Overly familiar with her defiance
patterns of fetal alcohol confusion,
neuro-systemic habits of resistance,

I, the consummate ecofeminist,
was sure my daughter felt
I was shutting wounded Ivy out
when she wanted me
to enter her toxic on-line
stream of Sponge Bob consciousness

When she came to me,
in self-care mode,
while I was meditating
reading
reflecting
writing
breathing deeply in,
then out

One gasp for hope
at a new pandemic time,
searching for one hour
without unmitigated despair
at this unhealthy contagion time,
one calming day at a time,
one therapeutic glimpse at a week,
one unimaginable month,
one lifetime of a year,

One retiring stage,
one quickly ancient life,
one emerging seamless love
at this time.

In exasperation
with her insistent interruption
in my sacred space,
I exclaimed
“Ivy, I can’t take care of you
if you won’t let me
take care of me!”

To which she replied,
“Can I sit here
quietly
next to you?”

I was skeptical,
cynical about cooperative deep breathing
with screaming screen-time Ivy,
but “You may,
if you can”

And so she did
sit next to me
at the head of my bed
where her paraplegic brother slept
post-seizure,

She leaned her black curled head
against my old white man shoulder
peacefully
breathing side by side

And that is how
we resiliently entered
into this passing
evolving
rising and falling,
erupting and disrupting pandemic
of Earth’s green
and sacred
virally emergent
health care.

EarthTribal Abortions

All of the men
and most of the women
I have known
whose most important life-affirming value
is not to be for Earth’s climate health
and is to be adamantly against abortion
of healthy individual fetal life,

Are not motivated by love
of all polycultural
EarthTribe interdependent life’s
organic networking systems
of humane-divine development.

More rigid anti-abortion positions
ironically emerge from confusing
complex interplay
between AnthroSupremacist
LeftBrain monocultural thinking

Supported by white patriarchal
monotheistically hierarchical
RightBrain repressed anxious feelings
that nonstraight
nonmale
nonwhite folks
have always been less empowered
and inevitably more dimly enlightened
about healthy
divinely inspired
ethical values for health-wealthy life.

Those who have blind faith
in AnthroSupremacist righteous values
but less actual experience
of integrity’s personal blessings

Whose lot in less loved and valued life
is to survive win/lose cosmic ecopolitical realities
rather than win/win EarthTribe anticipations
to holy and holistically thrive

Have less healing experience
emerging consistently
multiculturally
from healthy fetal emergence
and from mentally healthy wombed experience
into light of EarthTribe’s co-empathic
universal commitment
to wealth-share
healthcare

Rather than continuing
mindlessly aborting Earth’s green/blue health
as a living
sacred
global
organic system
of divinely humane
compassionate providence

More like a polycultural garden
of healthy polypathic loving Elders
than a hotbed of climatic
dramatic
mutually abortive hate.

That Troubling InterDependent Sensory Web

I mean,
seriously?

Talk about
boundary issues!

I get it,
why the 7th multicultural value,
and most recent
to finally make it in
to sacred UniversalYang/UnitarianYintegral
iconology,
doxology,
eulogy,
ecotherapeutic theology,
green ecofeminist ecology,
declares our polypathic RESPECT
for our interdependent sacred web
of life
win/win reincarnating love

As in,
could EarthMothers
get a little RESPECT?

Which just might not fail to mention
that AnthroSupremacists are
a one among many EarthTribe species,
one of the more recent ones,
which stands out with our
NaturalLeft/SpiritualRight
dipolar co-arising
win/win neuro-systemic
Regenerative Communication Crowd

As that StraightWhiteMale privileged
overpopulated anthropocentric terrorist species,
that militarized ballistic stinky species,
that predative capitalist extractive species
of anthrosupremacists

Who wouldn’t know a cooperatively-owned
sacred green interdependent
panentheistic web of compassionate
and curious
and therapeutic love life
if s/he walked right up to him/her
and kissed sacred co-empathic MeWe
right on her/his luscious
nutritious lips.

EcoFeminist spiritual experience
interdependently weaves
unweaves
reweaves
economic and political webs of nutritious life,
sexual politics,
sacred polycultural emergence,
bicameral polyphonic resonance
felt balance
thoughtful curiosity
cooperative appreciation
liberal sympathy
trust conserving empathy
compassion
GreenEarth Gaian wokeness
indigenous YangSunLight/YinEarthPower
co-invested wisdom

Remains stronger
in Eastern philosophical panentheisms,
pantheism,
polytheism
polypaths reconnecting thoughts
verbalizing natural/spiritual
outside/inside preferences
for monotheistic voices
making LeftBrain dominant
EitherSaint/OrPredativeSinner
polarizing Inside/Outside choices.

Someday soon
climate trauma
anxiety
rabidity
depression
EarthJustice oppression
EarthPeace suppression
EarthInterdependent RightBrain repression

May engage our cultural curiosity
about why RESPECT for this interdependent web
is a healthy and safe EarthTribal direction,
and yet there are other attributes
we might be wise to actively engage
as well.

I’m also feeling,
“We love becoming engaged
within Earth’s interdependent web of life.”

And I also like,
MeWe co-identity
feels co-passionate
LeftHemisphere Voices
interdependently balancing
a complex HolySpirit web
of panentheistic
sacred
RightHemisphere Inspiring FeltChoices.

We AnthroCapitalists
sometimes respect sacred Earth’s
interdependent web
of Truth and Beauty love,

And sometimes we appreciate
this sacred life,

And sometimes we over-invest
in more short-term compromised
self-righteous defensive lives
more like apartheid
than an interdependent sacred web,

And sometimes we submit
to a didactic
dogmatic web of fake
dissociative
supremacist
chosen people
rightwing or leftwing
anthrosupremacist
monotheistic
monoculturing
bipolar piety.

And sometimes we royally permit
Earth’s wild polycultural experience
to engage
in earliest win/win memories
of embryonic bilateral sensory communion,
nutritional economic networks
of interdependent life.

And sometimes we act out
against EarthTribe survival
as if we believe only the cockroaches
will thrive
in a redhot pathological Anthropocene,
and roaches are our most resilient Elders,

Although, sadly,
perhaps not our happiest
or most liberated
or particularly enlightened progenitors

Well, maybe more consistent
about respecting our interdependent web
of EarthTribe life.

Who knows,
really?

What healthy/safe relationships
cockroaches feel they interdependently need
and cooperatively want.

Sometimes People Share

Sometimes pandemic people share
pieces of our unspeakable personal story

That no health care worker,
sex therapist player,
or green resonant systems organizer
wants to hear,
much less smell,
or touch,
or deeply feel…

I flinch, sometimes.

Wince.

Maybe flirt with longer-term
dissociation,
to protect myself
from suicide
to protect ourselves
from ecocide.

Make sure I’m OK
for now
right left here

And agree with my hurting
therapeutic parenting
wounded child
revisiting this past
and present chronic stress
including emotional panic
premonitions
of darkly changing
monocultures
and corporate monopoly
money decapitated
by compassionate EarthTribe
commitment to green cooperative
integrity

And agree with my hurting adult child
to resist this emotional panic premonition,
inhaled trauma,
physical mental
natural spiritual
shamed and blamed
punished and neglected
disempowered and unenlightened
unless revisited
for further bilateral reflection

To wonder how this bad news
from good people places
is OK to tolerate,
absorb
engage with active curiosity
hope
good humored faith
soon as we can figure
what to do with all those unemployed
and too often unemployable
soldiers

Later,
no rush
about defusing the nuclear bombs,
unrushed by unpatriotic fear
that climate degeneration
isn’t also an awkward
forecast for nationalistic
America First
post-pandemic economic depression

For now,
return to deeply listen
for internal trauma,
loss,
suffering
as yet avoided

Nightmares of Lose/Lose
final
mortal
terror
so far avoided
on our U.S. watch
and witness when Other
karma turns toward Us.

But, again,
no worries,
no knotted panties,
no habitual sad-lined lines

Inconvenient
and unseemly
despite longer-term property
and embodied health concerns
about global economic dysfunction,
disturbingly addictive,
spiritually seductive,
physically superlative
self-entertaining medications

Avoiding deep dark meditations
with even more win/lose despair
that slow-grown suicide
feels interpersonally familiar
walking heavily through
yellowing
drying
burning
flooding
eroding
melting ecocide
remembering,

But,
who is this
remembering witness
who flinches?
And is s/he
the same Yintegral green voice
compassionately speaking
that We are co-empathically OK
for now
left right here

But reserve a StraightWhite Privileged choice
to revisit again
as soon as this wounded ecofeminist child
takes this chance
to speak HiStory’s Trauma

And re-imagine together
how we will,
next global warming climate post-pandemic,
re-support each Other
with compassion
and cooperative corporate co-investment

Knowing we will always do long-term battle
together Flinching
while co-arising
ego-centric hurting Voices
making less than Win/Win
health-wealth therapeutically optimizing
BiLaterally CoIntelligent Choices

Not really accessible
when on the darker side
of physical/spiritual addictive substance empathy
flowing somewhere between
temporary dopamined up serotonin escape,

Flirting with sacred suicide ideas
and afflicted by nihilistic despair
of globally disempowering
and locally unenlightened
ecocide.

But, again,
who is this governing witness voice?
this supremely indigenous
EarthTribal choice?

Who sings a full resonant hope
for future healthcare
choosing blue/green resilient
revolving EarthDay
for, and from,
a full whole systemic
nonzero-sum
ecofeminist Win/Win choice

For more YangStrong
Yintegral Flow balance,
polyphonic harmonies of light,
synergetic equities for cooperative power.

winter hibernating gardens

not-not despair
double-binding
