Transition Town Time

It was E. B. White
who famously lamented

Waking each morning
feeling prevented
from improving
his worldview experience

Or waking each morning
feeling joy
for improvements made
during views of Earth
sacred smack in Her
other wise dead head
inexperience

Or something
probably not so involved
but with the same
missing the potential
for

Waking each morning
committed to enjoy improving
my co-invested worldview
sacred health-humored
wealth of experience.

But not in a preachy
judgment way,
more of a cosmic beauty
sacred green holonic
kinda open wholeEarth systemic
sort of win/win play

More trauma-informed
by advocates
for green cooperative
deep learning non-violent communication
ecofeminist EarthTribe Day
and Transition Town Time
for restoring resilient EarthJustice.

Wounded World

I’ve seen Earth’s epitaph:
S/He did more than Her share
to heal a broken world

Which sometimes seems to invoke anger
because I can touch what’s broken
and other times provoke merely sad
because I can only feel inside
who is also wounded

Earth’s living magic,
watered fertile soil,
red-blooded organic
green clean soul
is not broken
like a worn-out clock
or formerly animated toy
or obsolescent urban block
now gone inevitably bad.

EarthTribe is not so much broken
as win/lose perpetually wounded
Paradise Lost
for our lapse
of good-humored Golden Rules
win/win re-found
happy healthy bodhisattva
rebound.

What is already broken
requires outside messianic agency,
too objectively disabled
to stimulate subjective healing salvation,
personally feeling better

Emergent internally vital
growing positively viral,
stealing from toxic claustrophobic disarray,
tomorrow’s voices redeemed
by choices erupting therapeutic promise
today.

Organic wounds,
unlike mechanical brokenness,
give internal notice
warnings of disenabling trauma
also enable therapeutic opportunity
to pull and push risk,
to massage and stretch ambiguous feelings
touching each Other’s sinews
and straps,
moral lapse,
dancing mental songs
and embodied raps

Filling in our anti-social lapse
our monoculturing elapse
of warm
and wet
and wild compassion,
integrity’s redemptive fashion.

Brokenness shrouds despair
alone
where wounds invite
our active healthy care
together happiness vocationed
for EarthTribe’s ecstatic day
by faithful contenting way
inclusively inviting
inspirational repair
with those who dare
to share Earth’s communal difference
to heal this wounded world.

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.

Briding Her Groom

We witnessed a wedding
of Groomed BridePassion,
Yanged Yintegrity

Groomed co-enlightened strengths
in cooperative economic space
with Bridal co-empowering flow
through sacred inter-generational time

Throughout each organically wedded network
explodes summer’s green emphatic climax,
ripe
hot
wet triumphal passions

Yet also witnessing Earth’s impending
imploding winter dormancies,
EarthMother’s cold
barren
dystopian Anthropocene.

We witness

Not this day,
but before
and after,
We wait
in darkening valleys of cooperative silence,
surrounded in this sacred place
by green-blue mountains
screaming grooms embriding restless slumber
to give a new rebirth
of organically permaculturing ecstasy
passion
co-passion
co-intelligent compassion

All this green
and transubstantiating sky-blue ecstasy
of deeply poetic license,
romantic licentiousness,
exotic pansexual deliciousness

Not groomed as a secondary backdrop
for this late summer’s labored wedding
of co-invested GroomNature
and BrideSpirit

Here and Now
a primal foreground
conjoining Earth’s Wholy Open
green systemic communion

Bride-groom
valley-mountain
yin-yang
wu-wei balance
after foreground
reverse foretelling
paradox fortuning
fortressing this reconceiving
of EarthTribe’s wedded passions

Politically powerful
economically nutritional
socially nurturing ecological
transensory bicameral
brided-groom intelligence

About what co-passions remain sacredly possible

Including, of course,
green cooperative healthy values,
but also finding win/win opportunities
in diseased and wounded disvalues
as uneased Yang grooms,
midst this trembling mountainous Anthropocene,
rewed Yintegral brides

Timeless
indigenous
ecofeminist wisdom
surrounded by capitalized health risks
yet also restorative justice opportunities
green as Vermont’s swelling
summer climax of fertile blessings
grace
doing Us cooperatively
our AnthropoScenic selves

Witnessing this co-passion play,
our naturally enspirited
EarthTribal Matrimony.

Green Boat Home

Though within me
I feel red motions,
Burning up Earth’s mountains
and plains,

Far away from Earth’s green-blue ocean,
Still this red blood heart can sing:

We are sailing,
All EarthTribes now,
never health harbor
or safe port have we known.

Our Anthropocene
surfs the ocean we travel regathering
red ironclad Earth
blues our green
boat
home.

Resilient Earth Culture

Individual health
hungers for
and
in win/win return
gratefully feeds
polycultural
social wealth.

Note: Variation on a Jeremy Lent theme, p. 365 of The Web of Meaning: “Individual health relies on societal health, which relies in turn on the health of the ecosystem in which it’s embedded.”

Sacred Origins

That first black and white
grainy
strangely fluid
floating
flat screen view
of the early developing individual
inside EarthMother’s womb

Reminds me
of that first
full-spectrum green and blue
strangely white cloudy
moistly floating
slowly revolving
flat screen view
of home planet
still developing
evolving
revolving Earth.

A LeftBrain dominant individual worldview
from a RightBrain bilaterally individuating
Self/Mother
Home/Other
co-arising contextual perspective.

I find it difficult
to see these embryonic becomings
as if emerging from
monotheistic v panentheistic
ego-transcendent v ecosystemic immanent
imminent
degeneratively emergent
anxious Original Sin.

Original corruption,
degeneratively mortal design
implies our Creator,
our recreative natural/spiritual processes,
our Yangish MonoGod,
our Yintegral PanEntheistic regenerativity,

Made an anthropomorphic
inhumane
unloving
win v lose
zero-sum calculated mistake

Original Sin
concludes that humane spirituality
is dualistically severed
from divinity’s naturally regenerative
integral
organic
synergetically co-relational
win/win potential
before any umbilical cord
is surgically severed.

This, in turn,
confuses a LeftBrain dominant
either true or false
way of competitively adding v subtracting
win/win multiplying nonviolent regenerative health
for both mother and child,
Earth and her EarthTribes

Back before white privileged
LeftBrain dominant males
disproportionately developed English,

Further back
before linguistic empowered language
evolved from economically enlightened
numeric quantification
scale
organic rhythm
syncretic nurturing pace
integral sacred felt space
curiously intrigued
emergent win/win
co-relational
metric
fractal DNA patterns
of co-attaching
healthy co-investments

Infant organic neurosystems already knew
Earth’s bilateral inspiring intelligence
was troubled
when the following were no longer nondualistically sensed
as self-referencing
regenerative
integral
synonymous win/win experiences:

life as love
resilience supporting resonance
nature outsiding inside spirit
body-mind
EgoBaby/EarthSystemicMother

Passionate compassion
humane-divine
secular-sacred
ego-ecosystem
autonomy of interdependence
oneness of zero
linearity of spiraling circles
fullness of empty

Historic Culture
justice of peace
equity of integrity

Health optimizing wealth
Me of We
individual relationship
colonizing creolization
competitive cooperation
Either/Or reconsidering Both/And
linear bipolarity co-arising circular dipolarity

Prescriptive Thoughts emerging from descriptive Feelings
cognition of intuition
perceiving EarthTribe receiving
secular space throughout sacred time

Imagining my journey
since my first black and white
prematurely grey grainy
strangely fluid
floating
flat screen worldview
of ego-home planet
still developing
evolving
revolving
health wealthing
sacred
full-spectrum
spiraling MotherEarth.

Humbler Heroes

arth’s urgent need
for humbler heroes
finds unenlightened me
clinging to early fears
and angers
muttering loathing
and festering hate.

Meanwhile
Brother Integrity
and Sister Humility
notice global health potential
is already therapeutic blessing
co-arising traumatic warning

HealthClimate leading toward
win/win Integrity
and Humility
regarding past wounds,
afflicting and afflicted,
supporting
Win or Lose
Win and Lose
Healing and Hurting
unconditional regard,
uniting compassion
without cultural
religious boundaries
of health and safety consciousness.

Internal ego humility intent
and External eco-integral systemic
health potential relationship
includes appreciation,
sometimes a little more humble depreciation,

Where Ego inside
evolves integrally
organically committed
to what
and when
and why
Integrity’s humble
healthcare systemic potential
bicamerally transposes
outside-health/inside-safety
cooperative compassion

Already making babies,
sustaining slowly dying rivers,
maintaining quietly crying
glaciered mountains,
retaining liberal/conservational integrity,
Left/Right anthro-humility,
bicamerally co-arising
EarthDay’s primordial need
for humbler heroes.

It’s Hard to be Green

It’s hard to be Green
in a Red v Blue drama scene

Hard to be heard
and seen
when the Blues
say the Reds
are too mean
and the Reds
find the Blues
too liberally obscene

It’s hard to be Green
when political business
is about capital investment debate
and not how to ecosystemically abate
the invasion of our hate
amid failure of our late
climatic Anthropocene.

It’s hard to be Green
and seen
in a Red v Blue debate
about sharing our ballistic toys
with other militarized girls and boys
who believe we are safer to be mean
than to plant a spring garden
of polyculturally healthy cuisine.

It’s hard to be cooperatively Green
in a Win or Lose
Red or Blues debate
about who is most worthy
to trust
not to covertly lust
for powers bending the minds
and chilling the hearts
and killing the home
of our late Great Transitioning
unearthly mean
formerly Green
Anthropocene.

It’s hard to grow Green
humbly in-between
clearly,
dogmatically,
emphatically,
apartisan unseen.
