For, and Against, Every Season

For every relationship
we can rediscover
a season
of increase
and tipping point
toward decrease.

For every correlation,
positively resonant
and negatively dissonant,
a regenerative
becoming degenerative season
for building up and out
and tearing down and in
compassion
tipping toward
dispassion
revulsion
decay

Like passionate summer powers
Falling toward
diminished winter light
dipolar co-arising
hope for continuous
contiguous fresh spring
cooperating green,
morning blue
yet warmer
cumulating skies
repredicting summer’s
fertile
climax
passions

Re-enlisted
in four fractal
reasoned seasons
for redeveloping Earth justice
and restoring Tribal peace.

Inside Climate Mess

Inside monotheistic ego aware
feeling
outside polytheistic co-empathic

These inside enlightened intuitions
outside verbal empowering cognitions
reflecting cooperative
in-between positive co-relationship
representing explicit wants
and implied needs

Win/Win co-relational regard
awareness
noticing all genetic roads lead back
back
back

To outside EarthTribe stabilization
inside
four-dimensional whole system fractals

Winters inside dormant outside

Springing active outside leading
feeding inside wealth of hunger
and healthy thirst

Summer ego/eco-climaxing systems
nurturing nutritional
identity individuation
full Yang cooperative maturation

Falling mortal outside leaves
failing freezing young root systems,
buried inside nuts
and seeds
of potential refertility

Autumn’s harvest integrity
reflecting
fomenting inside naked souls
feeding outside depleted soil

Positively regarding balance
tipping winter solstice promise
of ecosystemic past inside
and future outside
regenerations

Yet to EarthTribe thrive
despite genocidal
climate warnings

Inside ego aware
encultured feelings
outside co-empathic.

Consuming Compassion

Natural compassion,
like unnatural hate,
is left hemisphere teachable
and right hemisphere contagious.

Perhaps also like hate
(fortunately I know less about this
journey in misfortune)
compassion cannot mature
through merely didactic reasoning,
words,
thoughts
devoid of healthy
safe feelings

Positive communication experience
commitment
integrity

Nurturing
and nutritional support

Nature’s cooperative respite
into nondualistic peace,
resonantly non-anxious safety

A lifetime environmental healthy
guarantee
that I will notice,
respect,
attend to,
anticipate moments when alone
to fill with imaged complex solidarity
rather than emptying
into dark silent apartheid,
despairing manic loneliness,
uncomfortable forced separation,
segregation,
severance.

Compassion
grows from infant attachment
into childhood appreciation,
puberty’s struggling acceptance
flaring into peaks of passion,
adolescent sympathy
for EarthTribes left behind
and out
and under
and away
and fractured by neglect

Of history,
culture,
religion
healthy and impassioned sexuality

Marginalizing into unstable labels
of Either Us Or Them
eco-political competitions,
divisions,
polarizations
of what MotherEarth
wove
wombed
birthed together

For mature
adult
healthy and safe
EarthTribal empathy

Which,
when felt and known,
seen and heard,
touched and smelled
as uniting co-empathy,
we deeply feel
and wide-culturally speak
of integrity’s mystery

Sacred,
wondrously overwhelming,
awesomely unspoken underwhelming
steadfastly anticipating
timelessly stable
strong yet flowing
co-passionate communion.

Forgiveness

Forgiveness,
like trust
and repentance
and the salvation of heroes
slowly getting back up,

Forgiveness,
of Other
and others
and self,

Forgiving
is not instant,
like a package of oatmeal
or grits,
because growing
and regrowing trust
is a process,
like growing flowers,
blossoming in their
and our own
best time for resilience,
regeneration,
restoring beauty
and peace

Forgiveness,
like repentance
and the win/win salvation of souls,
isn’t all or nothing,
except in those climatic moments
of anger,
when it is nothing,
and except in those climatic moments
of joy,
when it is all

When we are fully engaged
in trusting this place
investing this time
within win/win EarthTribe
mundane sacramental life

Just right
for getting back up

What’s left
for giving Other
yet another chance
to not screw us up.

EarthTribe’s Adventure

War is not my wintry answer
when summer’s serene peace
remains a cherished question.

Late autumn’s year end Advent
sadly a anticipates late winter’s
grey unrelenting Lent

As Christmas traumatically
commercially prophesies
black Friday
before Easter mortality

Painful future passion story losses,
hopefully temporary,
yet now recently felt
with post-bimillennial stressors.

A global sensory climate of anxiety
and not anticipation,
of unease
and not health

Of crumbling democratic energy
fading public sensing health
and bumbling good governance wealth,

Lost in dogmatic
even fascist partisanship,
abandonment of healthy democracy
bicameral bipartisanship

Sacred Left
and secular BusinessAsUsual Right
religiously held monocultuiring privileges
overwhelming divinely humane
co-passionate polycultural serenity,

Unitarian integrity
of universal NewYear EarthTribe health
wealth resonant resilience.

How will this EarthTribe sacred solstice
harmonically resound
healthy democratic energy?

Spaciously serene peace
for wealthy therapeutic Earth
justice.

Consumer wars
are not my LeftBrain answer
when RightBrain healthy peace
remains my economically enlightened
and politically empowered
sacred
trusted
integrity-potentiated
question.

Complicated Relationships

In complicated relationships,
and complex story telling
with regeneratively developing
and degeneratively undeveloping characters,

Personalities with powers to inflict harmful
punishment,
and healing
forgiveness,

Shunning
and harassment
or compassion,

Neglect
and abuse
or solidarity,

Who switches from and
to positive
to negative,
and back again
first
and last

Depends on where and when we choose to begin
our journey down selective memory’s avenue
of speaking and reacting
and not listening and responding,

But this primary choice
of Alpha and Omega point
is further influenced
by what we choose to notice
and assume is perceivable,
malleable,
alive

And what we fail to remember
to reconnect
to return again
to restore
to omit
to set aside
to assume

Among all our political and economic
civil and uncivil history of individual relationships
and family systems
and community networks
and EarthTribe polycultural species
come and gone before
on Earth’s round revolving stages
of unfolding
unraveling

And refolding
reforming
redeeming
rewinding
regenerating
restoring historic healthy relationships.

Mercy’s UnBlind Justice

I suspect mercy may be more resiliently empowering
for optimizing multicultural health
as compared to uniform law
and ordered, cookie-cutter, justice
unresponsive to ubiquitous mitigating circumstances
of unique spaces
and relentlessly changing times.

Mercy recognizes society’s environmental
historical contributions to loss,
to absence of equitable justice
more aware of each individual perpetrator’s responsibility
to society
to family,
to local community

Society’s justice,
without nurturing
restorative mercy,
speaks decontextualized
un-nuanced authority of capital-measured economic systems
including reasonable and fair expectations
of retributive law,
imprisoning neglect
and sometimes violently punishing order.

I wonder if both justice and mercy
improve therapeutic co-arising potency
restoring merciful justice
AND
revising metaphysically just
equitable
reuniting mercy,
co-redemptively resolving
what Earth has positively conjoined
in thoughtful truth
and felt beauty

Breathing,
re-animating,
enspiriting
inspiring nature’s in and out climates
of seasonal development,
undevelopment,
redevelopment,
anti-development,
pro-development,
fractal phases of leftbrain space
mercifully greeting,
halfway meeting,
bilateral rightbrain TaoTime

With merciful multicultural anticipation,
so less competitive room
for monoculturing white justice anxiety.

To Gladly Walk

If I could walk gladly
and talk not sadly
across this Earth
around our home,
our shared place
of sacred journeyed birth
and emergent democratic space,
I would.

Yet, not only could we walk
and talk
in Earth’s dispassioned way,

Not only would you
and should we all–
but we do
already

This pilgrimage of growing attachment,
then adolescent competitions,
then co-acclimating
more mature
wiser self-interested consciousness
back through ancient cooperative journeys
into Earth’s divine root systems
redefining multiculturally healthy communion

Where life networks prepare for final death
No more or less
than daily deaths to egotistic stuckness,

In illusions of human privileged apartheid
prepares us for Earth’s further financial freeing
from right now responsibility,
loss of moral authority,
political fleeing
journey away from our global sacred space
integrity
in energy
through liturgy
for revolutionary complex spirals
of and for
Earth’s most healing SafeHome interests

Humane, yet also divine, ecosystemic unveiling
within just-in-Time
redevelopment of cooperative communication

For walking gladly
and sadly not win/win
madly listening
not not badly hustling
just-right resonantly rustling

Through deep autumnal leave
and wrestling wide spring tides
and all Earth’s awesome wonders
in-between Summer’s passionately respirating heat
and Winter’s synergetic deepest freeze.

The Rabbi’s Awesome Mother

She associated awe with unvoiced age.

Her son often enthused
about awesome tech-paced change,
empowering opportunity,
but, for her,
youth is an age for voicing wonder
as elders remember awesome quiet connection
back with memoried Time.

She found elder awe memories,
structures,
originating imprints,
in trees from humble
yet awesome nuts and seeds,
formed back in timeless forests

Where nutritional root systems
meet yang-strong trunks,
boldly growing toward sunlight,
flirting quietly with moonlight’s fertility
starring light shining our way
from how many awesome staring years ago?

Now enlightening her empowered wonder
about this sensory sexiness
of trunks on root systems
so old she can’t quite recall

How could time carve hoary beds
with rivers of resilient water
flowing down Time’s journey
from wondrously young
toward awesome complex landscapes
of connection
re-connection
volition
revolution
solution
resolution
passion
co-passionate secular communication,
sacred communion.

Maybe if she goes on wondrous line
and writes about these awesome Times
they will become both more musically beautiful
and reconstructed true,

More passionately ageing together
with respect for Earth’s revolving
gorgeous flowing wisdom
and joy for multi-sectored
strong true handsome.
