Grown In To Be CowBoys

Please don’t speak his name.

Like ValdeMore
and more
and more,
history echoes such dark memories
fettered, now and then
by death’s final reincarnation

Because some will claim
he was a name
for Wild CowBoy Lost,
a martyr for washed out
useless
stupidly competitive lives
following red’s latest overpowering authority
shifting and shifty
while barely surviving Followers
deny, or even rapturously celebrate
Earth’s final redhot climate death

And others will take up his StraightWhiteMale
miseried tune
and persistently
resistantly speak his name
as if its true
red white and blue,

He was wild;
A cowboy who could buy your ranch
and you
and all your neglected and abused riches
for tomorrow,
and all Earth treasures
borrowed from health manifest,
destiny of win/win Wild Democratic Bounty,
beautiful green Us

Who barely remember
his weaponized
violent
CowBoy name.

SunLight SolAttitude

When my solitude
silently stands in sunlight
radiating GoldenRule enlightenment
and rational empowerment
through windows dawning bright,

A sharp shadow line
vertically cuts across my bridge
and brow of smell and seeing senses,

InBetween left within shadow
and right without radiance,
narrow sides of double-bonded Truth,
curious and hidden Beauty.

Right eye clearly articulating
bright prominent sight
dominantly lit up height
for best resonant enlightenment

Is blinded by bright
to not fight
automatic rays deflecting night,

While shadow Left,
not yet overpowered
with Right red-eyes blinded punishment,
benighted verbal authority,

BiLaterally
yet integrally knows he she sees
seas
and seasons dipolar co-arising contrast
best as starkest
never darkest
win/win economic dawning options
of BothLeft/AndRight gold radiating rain
in droughts known
through beatified non-pain,
bicameral light regained,
empowered feelings unslain

Again
full bicameral stereo polyphonic,
Radiantly healthy thoughts
not verbally sustained
without dark ultra winnings
winging out and in reimaged, full
golden silent solidarity
mountain-rivered,
ego-system eco-quivered,

Belonging to Earth committed bright
compassion soul
ZeroZone of full
new partial shadows
in light rememory,
undelivered solitude
for health safe night

When my solitude
silently stands in sunlight
radiating GoldenRule enlightenment
and rational empowerment
through this window just now dawning bright.

Integrity’s ConFusion

It is confusing
to RightBrain health values,
to systemically resilient integrity
of enlightened economic thoughts
and politically powerful feelings

When a confederated government
values home owner residents
for their economic future capital value

More LeftBrain dominantly
than indigenous wisdom
that Earth Cooperative Ownership
is win/win rooted in ego/ecoLogical
co-relational healthy wealth,
in co-federated political safety
of co-passionate communion values.

EarthCommunion
is often a frightening disvalue
to LeftBrain evolutionary learning
Either/Or thinking
oversimplifies adolescent value statements

Associated with RightWing red-herrings
like CommunISM,
and it’s communal cousin
SocialISM,

Historically associated
with foreign frightening TotalitarianISM,
AuthoritarianISM,

Autocracy
kleptocracy
PatriarchalISM,
CatholicISM,
Global MonoculturalISM,
empire-stealing steely
nakedly overpowering ColonialISM,
oppression
suppression
enslavement
“for their own unredeemed soul-punishing good,”

Repression of individual interdependently healthy
responsible freedom for growing
multiculturally universal integrity,
nation-state democratic liberty,
responsible interdependent destiny,
eco-responsive republics
investing in EarthPatriotISM,
matriotic WISDOM.

LeftBrain win/lose fundamentalism
evolving golden humanity experiences
may feel confusing dissonance
about the historical prospect
that Straight WhiteConfederated Male privilege
derives from AfroCentric natural/spiritual
communal
tribal ecofeminist birthing heritage;
slighted by nationalistic history.

LeftBrain’s
Either Good Or Bad
reductive default
locked in
unchangeable orthodox values
may not easily discern fluid
natural/spiritual nondualistic nuances

Like the vast Both/And wealthy difference
between incorporated ownership
by a central win/lose elitist demonic State

AND broad multicultural
bicameral
bipartisan support
for business and social
and religious and polycultural enterprise
ownership by co-invested workers
by co-operating inhabitants
by eco-passionate consumers
by those civically and civilly receiving
win/win Earth natural/spiritual services

By interdependently free individuals
cooperatively investing in each
co-responsibly speaking
and co-responsively acting Other,

By indigenous tribes
species
and extending families we patriarchally provide
health/wealth caregiving matriarchal protection
and GoldenRule provision
confusing prevision with Both/And

Indigenous
AfroCentric
ecofeminist origins,
when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
might have looked
and sounded,
enlightened
and nonviolently empowered,
more like Martha Lucia GreenQueen.

Deep Listening Communions

“The deepening perception
of the body’s illusory nature
is one of the most profound
and inspiring realizations
we can have
to help us let go [of dying bodies and minds].

Deep listening
of our mind’s transition-illuminating
flowing nature
is one of the most profound
empowering
enlightening
and inspiring spiritual realizations
we can have
to help EarthTribal cooperative awareness
grow

To help us globally commit
to let go of egotistic
narcissistic
anthropocentric privileged images
of our monotheistic
all powerful, so inhumanely disempowering,
all knowing, so win/lose transcendently inhumanely
unenlightening dark energy,
straight white patriarchal privileged
GodImaged Language
devoid of resonance with my own personal
intimate spiritual inside voices
deep listening to my interrelated multi-regenerational experiences

No longer severed
dissociated
ignored
neglected
wounded
apart from my
and our
cooperatively-held bicameral communication
spiraling reiterative
redundantly revolutionary
bilaterally polypathic
binomially polymathic
polar polyphonic
sensory awareness

That belief in changing
choosing
planning win/win robust multicultural traditions
is a healthier transparent and vulnerable
communication polyphonic frame

And wealthier lifetime way
empowering truth
enlightening life
than further over-investing
in yet more business as usual
left-hemisphere dominant
stuckness in unchanging Either/Or degenerative
monoculturing
dying
fading toward ego/ecosystemic
viral and rabid Lose/Lose Earth
AND Earth OrganicTribe
and EgoIndividuating
unhealthy
unwealthy
fading sensory
disebodied
desensitizing
absence of resilient sensory-systemic
natural spiriting
regenerative health inspiraling
communal deep listening lives

More powerfully light
than over-emphasis
on ego-privileged lose/lose death
through slow
and painful
eco-political monoculturalism
patriarchalism
capitalism
corporatism
colonizing predation,
systematic and strategic
left-brain rationalized
racist and sexist and against trans-multicultural sensed health
exempted from anti-win/win GoldenRule
retributive unjust systemic
humane-ego/divine-ecosystemic
dualistically excused
disconnected
un-religioned
secularized
commodified
enslaving
eco-politically addictive
win/lose cynical
narcissistic
anthropocentric
either/or thinking
and not feeling remorseful about
further future generational seeds
of climate
and monocultural
pathological predation.

This deep listening perception
of the body’s intimately felt
non-verbal communication
spiritual nature
is one of the most profound
and inspiring,
empowering
and enlightening,
ecologically natural
and polypathically spiritual realizations
we can have
to help us let go
of win/lose eco-political debates

To grab hold
of more lively
and playful
win/win discussions
dialogue
discernment
co-investment
empowerment
systemic enlightenment.

Point of Departure

My time of promise,
before mistrust of parents
settled into growing fear
and grief into angry disappointment

Began with a visit
from a GreatHorned Owl
dying on our barbed wire fence

Announcing she would go before
but return for my time
to follow heaven’s departed promise.

But, my father responds,
Only straight humans sing in white evangelical Heaven,
And this planted my seed of doubt

A cosmic point
in bitter anticipation
of further adult atrocities to follow
in imaged flight

From this brief encounter
with natural and spiritual wings
I gradually developed internal witness:

If not ecologically necessary,
then not yet theologically sufficient.

Now,
still breathing,
singing and dancing,
beyond all reasonable health risks
of my own environmental history
in a new barbed millennium,
on the cusp of 2020 EarthJustice
left and right winged co-revision,

Heaven’s great-returned owl
revisits in near nightly dreams

Inviting me, and us,
to set aside anger,
to grab hold of more compassion
ego/eco-therapeutic communion
communication

Inclusion in Heaven’s climatic winning
ecologically wise theologies,
long incubating Rapture–
safe flight home.

 

I go back,
reversing imaged time
to when I felt
and knew untrammeled internal space
responsive within external
eternally immortal times
of Earth’s regenerative history.

For some,
again less fortunate re-imagining
with some conversing,
comparing rights,
contrasting lefts
hear no such winning exterior ecopolitics
with winning internal empowerment
and self-investment
since emerging from EarthMother’s
redundant DNA nurturing womb.

But, for a few,
a time of awareness
recalls a later conscious memory,
a time of courageous and curiously restoring justice
to those few relationships
showing early signs of uncreative anthro-centric tension.

These, unusually blessed
with resilient confluence,
may not recognize each wisdom-visiting other
and yet search for their potential bodhisattva peers,
returning to these childhood experiences
to remember slowly regrowing what went right
and vulnerably wrong
for restoring peace-filled justice
within and without
ego/eco-empowering tipping points,
wealth of healthy co-redemption

For all wombs,
their plantings and yieldings,
now still searching
through past generations
still incarnate in wombs
birthing future health-seeking regenerations.

Spangled Star Banners

Oh say, did you notice
a national predative anthem?
Moving immediately
urgently,
without reflection of starlight
sent or received,

From waving flags predicting weapons
fueled by complexly masculine
emasculating
militarized corporate industries
of mutual defensive risks
against international cooperative opportunities
to coinvest

In smoke-filled dawns of manifest destiny
toward freedom for all
self-righteous straight white males
especially with a divine right
as Earth’s owners of enslaved
exploited property,
and home to the brave mercenaries
of death
and dying
and divestment technologies.

This anthem
is based on a patriarchal
powerful
psychological
and spiritual
and natural
and ecological
theological error.

Nowhere in our personal experience
nor our economic or political history
do we fight for freedom.

We do fight against oppression
but we flee,
apart or together, toward freedom.

Emigration is about exodus
toward hope and freedom.

Declaring wars,
expressing
and investing
our collective fears and angers,
These are about lands taken from reserved,
and feminized
and marginalized
and enslaved laborers,
forced immigrants into non-elite oppressions
of nationalism
patriarchalism
elite v non-elite dualism,
divides,
absence of win/win communication,
xenophobia
monoculturing suppressions
repressions

Where polypathic left with right win/win prominence
longs for polycultural confluence
rather than cognitive/affective dissonance,
flag waving
nationalistic predative anthems
sung empty-heartedly
with elitist left-brain opulence.

Climate Rise Up

As I write this, thousands of people are gathering to listen with each other, to sing, perhaps to dance more than walk in striking solidarity for climate health. I have been thinking of this moment, this event, this day, this strike on this sacred Earth all week.  And, each time this gathering comes to mind, so does Cassandra Batie and Jennifer Decilveo’s 2016 anthem, “Rise Up.”

This variation on Batie and Decilveo’s lyrics I sing in tears of joy and deep sorrow with those who are on their way, drawing near toward the sound and sight of each others’ voices.  I would love to join you in person, but old bones and heart and mind have learned that my climate anxiety flares into manic hope at such events, and then I pay the suicidal ideation price on my way home, feeling alone, hopeless.

I believe for every face and voice seen and heard at a Climate Strike gathering around the world today, there is at least another, and probably several others, with you in swelling heart, in passionate mind, in loving soul, but, like me, have learned that our Great Transition role, however resonant, will best remain resilient as we Rise Up on our front porches and back yards, in our forests and ocean shores, on our rivers and lakes, to sing to Earth’s tired trees, to dance to aching birdsong, to remember when we were young, more hopeful, more proud of what we can yet accomplish within Earth’s sacred solidarity.

Humbled now, this is dedicated to those more visible, to know we are millions already belonging together within this shared Great Transition, Great Turning, Great Reweaving with you; and with gratitude to Cassandra Batie and Jennifer Decilveo for Rise Up, embodied and well-sung hope.

I have been your living Earth;
I will live and die through you.

I will be your blood born sap;
You will live and die with me.

This Great Transition
into owning competitive responsibility
for climates of pathology and health,
inward and outward,
composed of all past energies,
small co-arising transitions
reweavings
regenerations
now contained in Earth’s soil,
Her rebirthing baptismal waters,
Her buoyant air,
Her fertile winds
and purging fires.

Earth’s broken down
and tired
of living love
on this unmerry-go-round,

And I can’t see Her lovers
but I hear life in you
so we gon’ rise Earth up,
Move mountains,
we gon’ walk love out
and heal oceans.

And we’ll rise up,
We’ll rise each Earth’s day,
We’ll rise up,
We’ll rise unafraid,
We’ll rise up
and we’ll love life a thousand times again;

And we’ll rise up
high like Earth’s waves,
We’ll rise up
in spite of life’s ache,
We’ll rise up
and give love a million times again,

For Earth,
For you,
Earth, for you;

When our silence isn’t quiet
and it feels like we’re growing hard to breathe
and we know Earth feels like dying,
Then I promise we’ll raise the Earth to Her feet,
Heal forests,
Bring Earth’s tribes to our feet
and move mountains.

All we need,
All we need is hope
And for faith we have each other,
And for peace we have each other;

And we will rise
we will rise
we will rise
we will rise,

We’ll rise like Earth’s day
We’ll rise up,
We rise unafraid,
We rise up
and we’ll love life a thousand times again,

And we’ll rise up
high like Earth’s waves,
We rise up
in spite of hate’s ache,
We rise up
and Earth does love a million lives again.

For Earth,
We will rise
we will rise

We will rise
for you,
Earth will rise with you.
