Seeking Salvation in Retiring Spaces

Prayers,
sometimes lightly lyrical,
slyly satirical,
self-conscious,
ego-
and anthro-chosen folk
transcendently
yet personally
individually woke,
and sometimes full embodied
passions in Praise Him!
shout out

Echo in-
voking round resonance
with all Earth’s eternal
regenerating lively
lovely resilience.

Prayers
express “I feel”
so invoke “I want,
even actively need”
Trust Statements

Or,
prayers are LeftBrain dominant
performances
of True v False
Health v Pathology
internal v external
enlightening transcendent thoughts
v empowering emotional support,
Reason v Passion Stories.

“Lordy, Lordy
I sure do hope
for active Sunday hope
that Donald Trump
will someday,
although probably not this day,
enjoy a long
and healthy
and unusually quiet,
cruelly serene,
claustrophobically private retirement
into suffering
and mental anguish
over all his many sociopathological
sins against natural
and spiritual,
physical
and mental,
embodied and mindful health care
giving
by receiving
copassionate
co-invested communion.”

In this prayer,
what does grandmother Eartha feel?

Lack of sufficient hope
for robust and healthy redemption,
maybe sadness about humanity’s great fall
into partisan disunion,
probably chronic climate anxiety,
in which She betrays
and is betrayed by
fear of RightWing AnthroSupremacy.

Meditations
on red sky climate warnings
nonverbally remind MeSheWe
together invoke nonviolent polypaths
leading to polyphonic
lyrical and PraiseHim!
for what we all,
with thriving rich resilient souls,
wish for

An unusually quiet,
serene,
private retiring redemption

From Old Testament
PatriCapitalist
Nothern White epic histories
of colonization

We nearly all AnthroSupremely invoke
deep EarthTribal fears
of our own BusinessAsUsual corporate
systemic
nationalistic
white cracker violent
discommunications

And we are all dearly angry
about lack of sufficiently empowering
and enlightening retirement funds
and redeeming facts,

Spiraling polynomially spacious circles
of polyphonic prayers intoned
entombed beyond eternal silence
peacefully polypathic

Invoking
“I feel lyrical” performances
and I need more than mere divine performance
embracing deep Nature/Spirit flow
ing widely polypathic
“Praise Him/Her, We Two!”

Wu-wei extending conscious
polyculturing healthy conscience
continuing compassion’s
discontinuous
EarthPeace Prayer.

BumperSticker Salvation

I’m behind a dull white Chevy sedan
developing a lived-in look
while waiting for a greener light

With more than sufficient time
to read two rather ragged bumper stickers
in radical red,
relentless white,
and smoky blue.

The left side message
right in front of my resting wheel
reminded me of my waiting shame
that Jesus had to die
because of my personal sins
for which no one else
could even be partially
pulled out to blame

Only confirming
my bad-self flame
burning along with
a ZeroSum Win now
to delay Losing later
our all-in financial
and partisan lame game

Selling out to our competitive patriarchal
hierarchical shame
of predative corporate Christian Capitalism,
which is what remains
of Cooperative Economics
after squeezing all natural
indigenous spirit wisdom
out of wealth
is health optimizing life.

If only I were less selfish
and lazy
about mediating good-faith
healthcare co-investment cooperatives
as I move along
through each nonviolently communicating
day and night

Bringing me back to the bumper sticker
on my right wing
reminding me,
There is room left
at the Cross for me

Which immediately feels threatening,
ominously judged
and found collectively guilty
for my personal lack of faithful
healthy Soul,
big shortages in potential win/win co-investments
like gratitude for PolyCultural GreenHealth Communions
wherever I might stumble into them again
acting like We care
about health wealth resilient Us.

So, I’m tragically predestined
to climb onto the same rugged cross,

[and why is our cross always so iconically “rugged”
rough and primitive
ragged and wretched
manly and rapacious?
Why never graceful,
flexible,
poignant
transformative
potentially metamorphic
compassionate?]

Losing today
to maybe survive until tomorrow morning’s
StraightWhite God
declares redawning
punishing
timeless omnipotence
to judge all my tomorrows.

Yes,
there is a room for me
at the patriarchal foot
and the capital head
of threatening
punishing mortality
inflamed by oppression
of LeftHemisphere dominant
StraightWhite PatriCapital
anthro-divine individualistic
monotheistic supremacy

Worshiping healthy SunEnlightened humanity
by denying a wounding Cross
we have win/lose ZeroSum created
and recreate each day
between each nightmare
against sacred Earth’s polycultural communioning
reunioning
reweaving
win/win NonZero Soul
optimizing sacred Integrity’s
ecological
economic empowering
EarthWealth

Of a love so radically liberal
Jesus could get more democratically down
off our CapitalistCorporate cross

And then
I’m suddenly no longer behind a dull white Chevy sedan
developing a lived-out look
while waiting for my greener light.

Not sure why

ForeGiving CelEmbracions

We all have had worst days and best days,
good and bad days and nights
works and plays.

My own largest part of learning to forgive myself
for bad days
of WholeEarth neglect
and win/lose interpersonal compromises,
for bad historic days
of letting go too easily,
too conveniently
forgiving my unforgiving
and unforgiven apartisanship,
for sins of Othering heritage,
for anthro-
and ego-centric supremacy

Is to celebrate our connecting
and reconnecting
wealthiest viral health
safe return
to humanity’s multicultural Home

Silently celebrating my ego’s
largest ecosystemic spaciousness,
deepest wisdom,
widest win/win compassion.

As we learn to con-celebrate
EarthTribe
re-exploring our nondualistic
indigenous
natural/spiritual heritage,

We embrace integral
holistic
holy
transparent
and vulnerably compassionate communications

Restoring green peace
through EarthJustice,

Remerging

redemptive co-passion
celebrating my
and our
green eco/theo-logically peaceful

WellBeing constellations,
healthy bicameral democratic structures,
harmonic choruses,
fire-circle heated dancers,
multiculturing communion celebrants
cooperatively fore-giving our worst days
becoming our con-celebrated best days
and nights,
works and plays.

HealthCare Requiem

So here we are
now together in this eternal circle
around death’s latest victim
in our apartisan lives.

We pause,
each to invite a quieter humbling access
to silent comfort
from this ministering circle

Each, and together,
facing this our inevitable personal
frighteningly human,
naturally spiritual
and inspirationally natural trauma

Asking forgiveness from ourselves
and each Other in this soon parting Circle,
letting go of flawed relationships
in which we have done and said,
and too often not peacefully done
and said,
harm to ourselves
and to these encircled Others

Here doing our health and wellness best
we can
knowing some days and nights
like this death day,
with nighttime fears
and angers against cruel
and unusual mortality,
we will add to our shared ecology
and theology
of Trauma:

[invite Circle to add their own feelings]

Loss
Suffering
Pain
A degenerating climate
Hopelessness
Despair…

Yet, also in this Sacred Pause
before dispersing
shared Death’s hard inevitability,
we may also invite remembering
this our circling resonance,

When,
in our most robust compassion moments,
health care giving
is also wealth receiving resilient
brilliant,
physically empowering
and spiritually enlightening

We embrace
and celebrate our recircling Trauma facing
sacred place
warmly regarding space

For all that we have said and done
and have not said and not done
from heart-felt compassion
with ____;

[full name of deceased/ing]

This inside silent day
and dark night,
and those before
and yet to come
trusted truths
and healthiest beauty
circles gathering Earth’s compassion
celebrating this sacred pause in Life.

Where is HOME?

Among several sublime
and subprime
sacred meanings
and secular purposes
for HOME,
in October Sunbeams
of BlueSky enlightenment
and GreenEarth empowerment,

Dennis Lehane’s HOME
refining peaceful stable minds
defining sacred communion
for unconditional compassionate love,
not intentionally unkind

I could not sync
with mythological
or ecological
or theological CONCEIT

But, could not find a replacement
until recalling indigenously wise
nature-spirited refacement
of EarthMother’s EcoRoom,
a regenerate matriarchal WOMB

Making peace for Here
Now sacred place,
until we disregard
dismantle
desecrate
and degenerate,
in AnthroSupremacist ways,
down toward MotherEarth’s TOMB
GLOOM

Extracted
cancelled
pathological HOME
of DOOM

Which maybe does say something
about mythologically epic
CONCEIT.

Note: This piece refers to

“Happiness doesn’t lie in conspicuous consumption and the relentless amassing of useless crap.  Happiness lies in the person sitting beside you and your ability to talk to them.  Happiness is clearheaded human interaction and empathy.  Happiness is home.  And home is not a house–home is a mythological conceit.  It is a state of mind. A place of communion and unconditional love.

Dennis Lehane, in The Sun (magazine), “Sunbeams,” p. 48, October, 2021

EarthMother EcoMuse

When reading
and singing
and dancing poetry
enspiriting choreography
of emotively ecological
geography,

I need not check my LeftBrain dominance
at rhetoric’s healing door,

But bring Him/Her with me
once more

To heal chaos

What EarthMothers preach
and practice
and adore

No severance between Earth’s natural systemic Truths
and Ego’s spiritually animated

This Passionate Climax

Passions bring us to this sacred EarthTime.

More regenerative
when cooperative
and less resiliently competitive
when degenerative

Less producing fruit
of Future’s regenerative
integral
Whole OpenSystemic potential.

Individual subsystems more compassionately play
than dispassionately work competitively
at surviving
midst fractured remnants of a fertile Earth

Once more indigenously
nterdependently enlightening
polypathic
than a stubborn MonoTheistic
Patriarchal
Win/Lose Capitalistic Closed Entropic ZeroSum
worldview

Of sterile
LeftBrain reductively dogmatic
cynical greed,
powerlust,
competitive lack of trust,
dissonant AnthroSupreme
MonoTheistic
Othering distrust.

If my only choice
is to deify Love
or richly commodify Hate,
I will not further blaze a four lane runway
flying off toward ballistic Hell
homophobic racist bait.

If Earth’s glad regeneration
has brought human spirited nature
to this global climate crisis
of win/lose competing cleanliness
StraightWhite purity
next to Patriarchal MonoTheistic godliness

What polyculturing rooms
and stages
and universal frames remain
for compassion
more than gloom
doom
apartheid zoom rooms

To cooperatively practice healing
nonviolent meditating
win/win communicating
predator/prey creolizing
interdependently realizing

Rainbow Holistic
iconic transubstantiating healthy-wealth
double-binding
co-arising relationships

Binomially

preference for healthy association
rather than unwealthy dissociation

Healthy/wealth reconnecting
inter-re-ligioning
prime relationship design

Win/win
cooperatively nuanced complexity
within a hyper-estatic Goddess Gaia Nest
for ecofeminist students
of win/win ecopolitical empowerment
enlightening our already holonic NonZeroZoned spirit
of EarthNature’s restoring sacred hand

Naturing Compassion’s LeftHemisphere
deductive strength of reconnecting thoughts
with RightHemisphere’s inductive flowing feelings

wealthy peaceful passions

Without win/lose partisan Doubt
and with win/win eco/theo-logical
bicameral Decision

NonViolently,
and, more precisely,
compassionately delivering us
into this sacred ClimateTime
of health/wealth optimizing choice.
