Lively Fires

Life burns vigorously
predatively
until retiring,
slowing down to glowering embers
reflecting on all consumed since birth.

Flaming gratitude feels not yet fulfilled,
heatedly completed,
but hanging on for what calming
cooling purpose?
Embalming remnants of fueled meaning
with smug self-satisfaction
and feckless remorse.

Family relationships burn out
turn in toward former flames
risen higher
fueled deeper in memory
than capacity for renewed heat images
now questionable
in life’s resilient potential.

Fires nurture risk and opportunity,
but old fires grow risk of cold and acrid ashes,
fading active hope for new winds
smoking in renewed fuel opportunities.

This strong-fired life
of dried out climate difference,
strong inflaming protest,
oft questioned dignity,
smolders in wrinkling
shrinking maturity
over ripe with risk
of fading opportunity to yet see Earth
with new peaceful eyes,
with impassioned fires of understanding
what this human conflagration was all about.

Smoldering embers
dimly hope for new winds,
new unbillowing eyes
to recall that initial committed moment
of inspiration,
of spark and wind and fueled experience
inviting fires from first spark
til last light spent.

Fire,
like life,
like love,
builds its own waiting sanctuary.

Five WiseElders

Five WiseElders come together
hoping to complete their life circles
resonantly yin, right embodied
sacred light
resiliently yang, left enspirited
secular polypathic bright

Hearing emotions
before seeing to speak changing motions
of flow-strength, river currents spinningly deep
and winningly wide
to move Earth’s deforested
un-glaciered mountains.

I asked them
and they asked me
and each other,
Would you have still come today
if you could only despair
of more win/lose narcissistic business
as monotonously patriarchal usual?

Then a cooperative memory test:
What are your two primal forces
necessary, although perhaps not sufficient,
for social
political
economical
psychological
neurological
ecological
theological change to win yang
win yin experience?

The liberty of prophetic win/lose Crisis
and security of past mutually LovingExperience
now extending from womb toward tomb
in collaboratively somber
summary gloom.

I am already old,
we not so suddenly notice,
if we want to choose a more synergetic EarthLife,
yang/yin love,
left/right resilient balance,
Then we have already aged into our shared climate
of Crisis.

Few more procrastinating uncourageous choices
remain for our aging lack of curiosity.

Remaining time is
and is not
our warmest friend.
Urgency feeds our critical win/win
active climate of resonance-seeking change.

This space,
this partial and potential fire-circle
full of WiseElders
for healing ourselves
by helping to cooperatively health despairing Earth,
must become a resilient sanctuary,
a sacrament-inviting place
timelessly sacred WinSelf/WinOther opportunity
to regain our interdependent non-violent communal grace
of bilateral here/now
yang/yin
left/right
WinOrLose/Both WinAndNot (not) Lose
business as appositioned usual

Left-brain dominance without
also Right-brain integral prominence within
no fundamentalist saint or sinner
and yet also no liberationist
relativist
detached anti-theist
non-correlationist
merely coincidentalist prejudice
against old saints in crisis
and sinners of all ages
in circles for growing robust extending love

On Earth
within all EarthTribes
all spiraling reductions of well-wombed
through tombed
win/win enlightening life

Is not lose/lose dualdark death,
not yet
and not yet passed
past on.

Great Power Transition

We come,
at a trail’s trial turning,
to an impermeable ego-flaming wall.

All remaining between us
and history
since bilateral beginnings of our ZeroWalled Time
is this Yang barrier
double-binding before to after identity

Between humane solidarity
and Earth’s solid eco-habitat;
between us and living Earth joy,
swaying wildness,
sunlight on oceans,
early spring songs,
fogged-in mornings of gloom
doom
dark walled tomb…

Will we co-arise
Earth’s sacred ego-dominance together now
or unsolidly apart,
not long later?

Will we let yang with yin
left with right
dipolar consume
whatever resonant body identity
we have twisted
to transpire our seasonally climatic lives?

Sending us on and out each morning
through trembling memory of yang barriers,
a WiseElder power radiance,
a changed yang-purging yin-squared diamond
transubstantiating event
dialectically positronic
flickering interdependence
re-becoming EarthTribal breath re-inspired
expiring healthy atmosphere remediation,

Another moody not yet waiting
and not yet gone longing
ZeroWall,

Boson of Earth’s potential spacetime,
universal integrity,
holonically uniting spirit.

 

Inspired by Anita Barrows, “Questo Muro”

Avoiding the Boogy Man

A strong cooperative offense
is our most competitive defense.

Avoiding RightRed fascism
totalitarianism
terrorism, dark secular raptures and/or terrified jihad,
fundamental Nature is sinful, negative yin repressed,
while Spirit is health invested love, positive yang,
long-term ego/eco-centric,
bilateral co-temporal,
evenly humored humanistic divinalism.

By choosing divining higher
and humanely deeper
GreenLeft/RedRight co-regenerativity
strengthening LeftBrain’s historic secular case
for more cooperative climate cleansing
by divesting of RedRight’s competing disassociating divestment
away from

Divine/Humane WinWin MultiCulturing Holy Spirit
cooperative matriarchal/patriarchal outflowing natural
ZeroZone soulful
bilateral 4-Dynamic Primal Seasons
PolyNomial-GreenLeft ecology
for PolyPathic multicultural RedMountain Yang
speaks YinSquared Divine NonViolent ValleyLeft
PolyPhonic

Red light of dawning memories
co-invite Earth’s Green reforesting vocation
in 4D bilateral Left/Right positive energy
democratic-trusting frame
dynamically parallel bicamerality
with resilient fractal string-structures of humane DNA
and divine RNA theological Origin
and 4-ecological ZeroZone Seasons
with 4-theological nurturing Reasons
for romantic infatuation
with Eastern outside red dawns
of post-millennial inside climate warning
and
Western indigenous Earth and tree
and Sun and moon
and Extended sanctuary family
nature/spirit worshipers,
singers,
dancers,
historians,
improv and designing artists,
designing and implementing ecologists,
creation and degeneration processors,
deep learning ecotherapeutic theologians
story-tellers of legends
sweeping cooperative neighborhoods
greeting travelers,
sojourners,
fellow walking
and flying
and swimming
and crawling eco-pilgrims

Liberally green
and conservational red night lovers,
swimmer’s cooperatively mentored delight
avoiding tomorrow’s nationalistic
ego-theistic
utterly narcissistic
BoogyMan.

Don’t Tell Me Why We’re Waiting

My favorite radio show
is Wait…Wait, Don’t Tell Me!
on NPR near you.

But, it has bothered me,
over the years,
a snagging voice in sign-off background,
threatening the host will see me again next week,
as if that was the answer we had awaited,
and so hoped he would not tell us.

Why does he lie to me?
Deliberately or otherwise?
Did he not notice his is a radio show?
Isn’t the point that I don’t have to go anyplace
to be seen?
Nor need I look in his direction
to enjoy his show and tell.

This untruth could be like Ray Charles
telling his audience he will see them next time.
Either an embarrassing mistake
or a revolutionary news story
so dryly understated
it went almost without saying to his death.

Although at least he might truthfully say:
I will smell you with your money again next week,
or even hear you.
Although with Ray
I think my hearing point
would be the other way around.

Why not the truth?
We’ll be back again next week,
same time,
same station.

A little traditional.
Perhaps a twitch of self-promotion.
But, at least not an outright threatening misconception.

Which got me thinking
about how I kept hearing Trump’s campaign promises
as both personal and environmental threats
for way bad climates to continue
on all of these tired stations,

And whether he now has any idea
that each time he reminds us
of what a great job he and his beloved are doing
and please tune in again next week,
we continue hearing that as menacing reassurance
that he is insanely unattached,
detached in absence from,
unavailable for processing
how scary we find his anti-healthy outcome standards
for public sector administrative leadership performance,
usually more WinWin,
and considerably less about covering one’s own
Win some-Lose some
private bought and sectored butt.

I’m not so sure he’s doing such a good job
compared to,
well,
most any processor of information
of any multiculturing species
including those who claim they saw and actually listened to me
again last week
about how his comedic success both promises
and reassures us
of further tragic despair
as I think and feel what’s already not left of healthy wealth
for my own special needs and opportunities kids
trying to live in healthing climates,
and not quite so much pathologizing,
who may not reassure anyone
about what a great job they are doing
taking care of even themselves,
but that is honest;
this family is about and for transparent integrity.
At least we know when we’re sucked up
to by psycho-phantic
‘non-political’
moneychasing machines,
more mindful of badnews robotics
than goodnews gospel teachers.

We will also not be fooled into believing
we can be seen and heard by a public sector self-promoter
just because he threatens to come back again next week
to do this same monoculturing elitist thing again
that we know has only one-badway happened truthfully,
same time,
same sad and not quite true
yet still
kinda funny
spacetime NPR station

Playing
Wait Wait,
Don’t Tell Me
public sectors can’t really quite see private ears,
can you?
despite all our weeks
of mindfully listening
to our tragic comedy
threats as promises
together?
