Climates in Round Color

I could be wrong,
but feel right in guessing,
most straight men
don’t understand

Feminists, too,
just like them,
long to answer perennial questions
no one has yet asked
in published forums
for restoring EarthJust dialogue.

What is our unasked climate question?

Hiding deep inside
surgical silence of denial
erasing prior presumptions
of noble humane noises
neglecting wilderness of outside voices,
proEarth choices.

I can feel this holy aspiration
to multi-culturally know,

Or, at least listen for sacred hope
outdistancing secularized
criminalized despair

That longs for profoundly democratic healing
outside loudly pacing threat

Against transparently discussing
what peace costs
transubstantiating active distrust
of space empowered
time enlightened Others

Who might not forgive us
for trespassing against their safe manna-fed breath,
securing our full
securely colored sight lines
multigenerational spaces
sacred places
for and of silent solitude.

Where does realistic cultural compromise
resonantly close begin?

When does win/win multi-partisan climax of victory
most resiliently open end?

Does whole EarthYang health fill in
as aggressive extraction
of silent singing EarthBeauty
flows Yintegrity ailing out?

Why does ancient enlightening spiritual wisdom
lack sufficient natural empowering knowledge?

How does silence
and erupt
Earth’s best natural/spiritual questions?

What will we become
outside inside
full grown up and down
and all around
our octave keys
and fractal clues
emerging radiantly complex
full-sung complex silence
of compassion?

Who would love to outside dare
such self emptying green peace
without inside red despair?


Risking Love

I knew I was getting old
when I no longer always got up
from the floor
on my first try.

I remember I am old
because I no longer assume
I will always get up
off my contemplative couch
on my first try.

To choose life
on the first through last try
may be as simple
and as complex
as to not choose death,

To choose to trust enough to take
one more,
perhaps final,

To choose life
also includes risking love,
another gasp toward compassion,
even a shaky clasp on forgiveness,
indigenously wise mercy,
relentless curiosity,
ancient hope,

However fragile
insufficient for more grand standing
than one more bold inhale
of Earth’s organic sufficiency

It feels as wrong
to define my mourning self
by my failures to love us
on my worst arising days

I feel aright
to creatively redefine our meaning
with unearned compassions for riding along
on Earth’s most grace-filled

My daily liturgical experience
rises and lies
each day and night
recycling in-between
sufficiency of one last grateful inhale
predicting one more first graceful gift

exiting and entering
small sufficiencies
empowering love’s enlightening
curious co-arising wealth
of loving healthy passions.


Empowering CoInvestments

Feeling economically extorted
is like recognizing our collective guilt
regarding past ecological extractions.

Cooperative motives
for proactive economic health investments
are harbingers
co-investments in positive
resiliently democratic
ecotherapeutic communication outcomes.

Economic justice
of a particular exchange,
of any one transactional communication event,
depends not only on the mutually invested/divested
and decontextualized
un-historicized local outcome

But also,
restorative economic justice
moving toward global cooperative communication peace
depends on mutually non-competitive
co-passionate investment intent
for long-term
historically re-contextualized
ecological health benefits
to our global regifting,
gratitude enlightened,
politically empowering economy.

Extortion is reverse face
of pro-active giving
liberating redemption
from isolation,
extraction from our social capital economy
predicting more global extortion
from our communally wealthy
ecologically healthy
relationship patterns.

So too,
extraction is reverse face
of reinvestment,
natural regeneration,
spirited sacred redemption
of co-investors hearts,
co-messianic hands and feet,
co-bodhisattva roots
fed by historically multicultural,
economically wealthy voices
and ecological healthy choices

For deeply empowering
enlightening absence of distorted
kleptocratic extortion

Of historically empowered Haves
from monoculturally disempowered,
poor in spirited, HaveNot

A fair share of healthy communication potential
for re-investing
in cooperatively empowering
compassionate co-investments

And not so much feeling forced
into economic extortion
furthering ecologically unhealthy extraction
from resiliently wealthy co-investments
in future health restorative


PolyPaths Toward WarmFelt Metaphonics

A childhood memory warmly reminds

A game of Where’s the Thimble,
hidden by a gang of siblings,
or just one strategic sister,
left for me to rightly find
as I wander through our living room,
following bilateral cues,

You’re cold,
freezing really.
Now you’re getting warmer.
No, not that way,
toward winter.
Now you’re getting hot…
now boiling,
burning up!

changing through time
as metaphor
for sacred thimble climates
hidden among spatial options.

When thinking analogically,
a left-brain comparative contrast communication culture
sounds like resonantly fed
warm nutrition,
feeding and watering social hunger
and thirst left upon righteousness

While miscommunication,
deliberate mendacity
ruins our cooperative game,
analogous to toxicity,
pathological fragmentation,
predicting further degenerative disarray,
poor menu planning,
lack of win/win co-intentional play.

if feeling metaphorically,
a right-brain both/and comparative integrity
looking for a healthier re-enculturation process,
a more holistically satisfying experience,
culmination where two or more frames of reference,
trees of paradigm relationship,
are not only thought of as side-by-side, either/or
but also felt as inward nuclei, root systems
co-passioning outward climate boundary gates
breathing in/out

Here, nutrients
may also feel robust and happy,
healthy warm communication,
becoming warmer communion,
tropical creolization,
radical metaphor, yes,
but, much more significantly fundamental,
seminal for all win/win healthy global species,
metaphonic rhapsody,
polypathic polyphonics.

As left-brain polynomials
are ecologically
and theologically
and egologically
and ethologically not(not) potentially co-operative
polynomial integrity

As ZeroZone’s entropic in-between emptiness
predicts timeless intersectionally communicating fullness
of Alpha/Omega scripts

But, said the right-brain the(0)logist
to the left-brain ec(o)logist,
“Why might this be so?”

Why might left-brain’s ego-centering life
become love’s left/right win/win ocean
of DNA fractal potentialities?

Regenerative win/lose life’s global multicultural love
caring through warm cooperative theists,
reverse bilaterally refined
by not despairing, competitive atheists
longing for community,
not quite so much unfeeling entropy,
cold ecological relative analogy
of warm and full
theologically humane/divine immanent relationship.

Polyphonic polypaths
shout cold against analogical famine,
metaphoric numbness.

compare win/lose problems
to win/win solutions
in sacred stories of and about ego-lives
metaphors for epic trans-regenerational loves
suffering cold history
in search of warm thimbled happiness.

Competitive co-arising analogies
need not suppress cooperating metaphors
where warm regenerate acceptance
is not cold bad news tolerance
of competitively mendacious mediations
against brothers and sisters,
future aunts and uncles,
extending metaphoric families
of EarthTribes
turning and returning polycultural integrity
encouraging warm resonant faith
within good news living resilient rooms
and networks of global health/wealth communication.


Recycling Values

Values and disvalues
absorbed through communication
of felt relationship,
absence of connection,
hopeless excommunication.

The Left bereft
Brain justified,
weaponed for rational utilitarian consistency,
reified verbal logic
of neurological systemic Spirits,
feeling co-related events,
critical memories
epic predator/prey histories

Recalling ecologies of sensory attachment/detachment,
felt experience networks of virtual spiraling health values,
virtuously co-arising felt re-experience ecosystems,

And viciously degenerating
unraveling disvalue cycles,
pre- and post-cycles,

Feeding healthy value feelings,
unhealthy disvalue memories
and back
and back to when Space first felt Earth’s shift
balancing bilateral TimeFlow
for virtuous communication

Ego in Here listening kindly
within EarthTribe’s perpetually felt spirals
of revolving Now light,
Then dark…


Cooperative Learning

I think
and feel
it would be a good
and healthy change
if schools,
at all levels,
and parents,
of all nations,
taught our young
more about win/win cooperative
thrival passions
than win/lose competitive
survival dispassions.

Even better,
and more urgently primal,

We might become a good
and healthy climate change
if students and teachers
and children and parents
and listeners and preachers,
followers and leaders
listened to our young and old
with more win/win compassionate hugs
than win/lose competing survival detachments,
disconnected abuses
learned through lifetimes of wounds
and non-win/win potential integrity

Deeply and widely learned
from struggling unfree parents
and robotic behavior-commodified,
multiply and then divide,
left-brain dominant teachers
and schools
and monocultures
and nationalistic nonself-governors.


Nature’s Theology

If ecology
is about right economic and political relations
between natural organisms,
and species,
and interdependent climate systems,

And theology
is about left and right
western dualistic
and eastern nondualistic co-relations
between enspirited inspiring music,
and secular muses,
and universal sacredly holonic systems,

Then why does theological Rapture
not look and sound
smell and taste
feel and think
curiously and courageously more like ecological Climax?
within internal motions
as also outside climate mentors,
imagined communions with each Other.

and co-depending
on whether breathing in western left-brain wealth
of Wisdom,
or breathing out eastern right-brain health
of humane/divine

Nature’s dual/dark
as Energy’s interdependent
health democracy.


BiPolar Questions

If my right hemisphere
deep roots around in dreamy primordial emotions
longing to see morning’s money sunlight,
to color early midmorning questions
green ideas
emerging bilateral conversations
dialogue about mystery
and overly-commodified history,

Does my left hemisphere
emerge stems
then leaves
then fertile flowers, articulate?

then seeds, implicate
healthy integral potential
longing to incarnate portentous
afternoon’s pretentious communal activities
preparing to sing and slow dance summer evenings

While repurposing reverent questions
worthy of a night’s rooting
right hemisphere prominent


Lonely Nest

of individuals,
and nation-states,
leads insufficient capacity
to prophecy everyone’s collective interdependence,
and thereby remains partially blind
to Win/Win optimal health/wealth outcomes,
which could not be monopolized
by experiential loneliness
felt internal monocultural sadness.

By inviting risk to shift,
notice personal/political Lose/Lose depreciations,
bucket lists of long-standing tensions
causing unhealthy cognitive/affective dissonance
unresiliently stuck in slow ego-depreciating mortality,
absence of furthering resilient appreciative-inquiry belonging
within this
and each
and every
timeless Win/Win left-brain fragmenting
ego-prominent compassion-nest
self/other-perpetuating cooperative polypaths
implied within each unprophetic deeply pre-ingested
re-ingesting healthy/wealthy moment,

Irrational spiraling not not ego/ecotherapeutic self-care,
a dynamic healing ZeroZone
away from repressive solid OneNest walls
of silently atoning loneliness,
healthy hoping toward impressive implicit webs
for pregnant metaphoric
meteoric Earthiness,
EarthTribe nest.
