Sacred Communion

The opposite of secular capitalism
is sacred communion.

Synonyms for communion
speak with integrity
gathering empathic synergy,
positive energy,
nurturing absence of tragedy,
organic divinity.

The opposite of communion
is competing capitalism
just as love
disempowers hoarding fears
against inevitable angry loss.

It has been said
Democracy and capitalism
are not ecopolitical perfection
but as close to freedom as we have yet found.

Yet, egalitarian communion has long been felt
and known as healthy liberty
still finding us.

The opposite of liberal integrity
conserves Business As Usual mendacity.

Redefining Greatness and Safety

What’s the problem with homelessness,
other than the violence from which it comes
and toward which it further travels?

Why not ignore
and grow tolerance
for the inevitability of caravans
of sojourners
on pilgrimage
toward mirages
of Uniting Promise Lands?

I have more immediately pressing
everyday problems–
trimming my nails,
drying the laundry
on a rainy non-clothesline day,
raking the leaves,
mowing the lawn,
sweeping the front porch
to invite the occasional visitor,
harvesting the squash,
pulling voracious weeds,
cleaning, the gutters, rain-barrels…
feeding the birds, the kids, the garden soil, the truck…
clothing the barefoot kids,
doing my nails…

Did I say that one already?

These are my at-risk immigrating priorities,
my everyday interdependent pilgrims,
projects longing for a more integral,
mutually inviting,
loving,
enchanting,
even possibly ecstatic?,
climaxing! healthy purpose.

Lawn and leaves, con-joined
birds and children, singing back and forth
wet porches and clothes
and dirty rain-barrels and gutters,
tired and depressed,
worn-out,
sleep-deprived visitors
right here at my doorstep
sharing our cooperatively therapeutic planet
with whatever climate health remains
before traveling further
degenerative and regenerative pilgrimages
of choice
and no alternative
homeless choicelessness.

Homelessness is too big
to therapeutically share alone.

I am too small to host
and everyday depressing
compressed to receive,
to accept with impressed renewing eyes
longing for healthy integrity
throughout my extensive habitat
of deeply
cooperatively owned responsibilities
to co-produce common healthy outcomes
for ourselves
and all our caravans,
domestic
and wild,

Internal climate pilgrimage toward trust with beauty
and external co-empathic journeys
into wayfare homelessness,
eco-sublimation,
timeless Earth enchanting trusts
and disenchanting mistrusts
while cleaning my nails
while washing the truck.

Green Empathy

You’ve heard that self-unfulfilling prophecy?
“I love humanity–
it’s just people I can’t stand.”

I love healthy humanity–
it’s just wealthy and/or snooty people I can’t stand

I love cooperative humanity–
it’s just overly-competitive individuals I can’t stand.

Not so distant from,
I love U.S. society
and nationalistic patriotic jingoistic culture,
absence of non-bully matriarchal-power culture,
or whatever I don’t feel like thinking too historically
or too systematically,
or too health systemically about pathology today,
it’s just Trump as President we all should politically adore.

And to think he gave up a lucrative White business man career
over-invested in high end real estate,
developing and seductively marketing naked elitism
and capitalistic worshiping consumerism,
while Earth’s climate begins to burn
and flood,

Further polluting rivers
and oceans
and lakes,

Further polluting and thinning what’s left
of fertile ground soil,

Further polluting and strangling healthy food
production
and consumption,

Further stressing slippery non-conservative slopes
and neglected health care systems
and abusively ballistic non-health receiving war and terror-tool development industries
instead of cooperative gospel multiculturing messages

Further bruising and killing internal feelings
and external climates
for both ego-therapeutic
and eco-therapeutic Win/Win peace,
composure,
dignity,
loyalty,
integrity,
health,
synergetic wealth.

I’m not sure post-millennial people
with or without disabilities,
people with sacred faith in God’s diversity
reweaving natural/convex
with spiritual/concave creations
dipolar feeling authentic bicameral tensions
between nationalistic RightWing U.S. capitalism,
and retributive justice patriotism,
and also more active fear and anger
toward Don Trump as failed and bitter
and cynical bullying AntiChrist President
during the Great RedFlaming Millennial EndTimes.

In a post-millennial narrative,
we all go back to unhealthy Win/Lose capitalistic
LeftBrain dominant
ly encultured ZeroZone
competing non-cooperations.

I’m not sure about my own transmillennial ZeroZone issues
about loving U.S. RightWing economic conservators
moving toward green natural organic health choices
and love experiences of divine humanity
of and for faundamental goodnews Win/Win
non-violently communicating
Grace

which embraces all our mythic stages
EXCEPT:

Evangelistic jihad
Trump-praising and defending
Great BornAgain elite dogmatists
ignorant of experience with wealth
of Holy/Holonic
Patriarchal/Matriarchal Balancing
Harmonic Spirit

not worshiping capital idols and false gods
loyal to Win/Lose messy EarthClimate Futures,
betting against Creator PatriarchalGod of Win/Win Love.

Such dissonance is theologically troubling
because RightWing fear- and anger-mongering
elite nationalism
is so much more like pre-millennial Jealous YHWh
than post-millennial God of Green Sojourner Love,
Messiahs of Truth,
Bodhisattvas of Timeless Beauty,
Harmony,
Integrity…

Maybe we could do Win/Win better
with more green democratic
extended family choices.

I do believe Christians have special scriptural reasons
to actively search for healthier green
in organic community gardens
and permacultural cooperatively-owned and operated farms,
and poycultural EcoSchools
for natural/spiritual bilateral nutrition
before over-investing in Lose/Lose anti-eological
anti-theological capital ungreen vampire gains
toward building climate threatening and threatened
shore-front high rise,
old real estate BusinessAsUsual eyes
still blind to rainbow arcs of post-millennial windmill Paradise
as a more long-range patriotic investment choice.

Why such living green prejudice?

Because it is both historical and scriptural wisdom:
Gospel people are to be known by our love for each other,
more than our investments against each other,
especially the non-elite and at risk
of other alien nations and religions and cultures
and maybe ages
and gender
and color
and fragrance
and touch
and feelings
and language
and…

GreenGrace invites us
To include wounded children and their mothers and grandmothers,
To include residents of punishing legal systems
and insane asylums
and old age homes
and persecuted sanctuaries for our failures,
To include people with disabilities
and terrorizing spirits
and disabling inside voices
and lack of outside therapeutic choices,
hope
including healthy organic and medicinal responses
to pre-existing conditions.

Do I mean pre-existing sinful mental conditions?

Not necessarily loved quite so much
as pre-existing Win/Lose ignorance of Win/Win humane nature
divine spirit
healthier multi-lateral opportunities

But, yes,
pre-existing sinful conditions
for those who experience sin
as absence of sufficiently healthy multicultural love.
Why not open polypathic bridges
across value paradigms?

What if our love within Earth’s divine everyday humanity
teaches us to value enchanting love climates
comfortable for all green
and unseen
ultra-violet resources
rather than more Win/Lose competing disvalues
exploiting no one more chaotically in military-industrialized disarray
than disenchanted RightWing Trumpian patriarchs

Who originally intended to master longterm economic green
and serve Earth’s ecological creation stories
of GreatGreen Rapture
co-relationally EarthTribe staged
and Win/Win restoratively played
co-empathically
Humane animals and plants to the Left
with Divine people on Earth’s GreenGrace Right.

Excuse Me!

Excuse me!
my son’s bus driver exclaimed
as I walked away this morning.
I had not finished putting his safety harness on.

Excuse me,
without exclaiming,
means please cut me some slack,
I need to break into your flow of unconsciousness.

My curiosity about apparent invisibility
may exceed your courage for immediately present transparency,
intimacy,
focus,
accessibility,
grace
and less denial of dark powers toward absorbing self and other losses.

Excuse me,
unexclaimed,
unplugged may invite my love
and acceptance of what we cannot independently improve.

But, don’t dismiss me
also lies exclaiming dormant,
waiting in revolutionary disordering wings,
sometimes because lack of curiosity
about needs and wants of others
threatens to get in my own ego’s way,
harming, neglecting those within speaking distance here and now,
and many more not yet loud enough
for me to hear full-voiced disenchantment.

Excuse me!
exclaimed
leans more to RightWing
“Don’t dismiss my Business As Usual
Yang competition powers!”
then
“Would you do me a LeftWing yin paid-forward favor?”
To stop ego self-promoting
your internal short-term needs and rantish feelings
long enough to make love with some WinWin cooperation

MotherEarth
and all Her sacred tribes of history
are waiting for us to hear,
waiting for my excuse,
exploring future health dreams together.

Here with you
and Now as me exclaiming
longing for Earth climate ecstasy,
personal and public,
sacred and secular,
spiritual and natural
Excuse me, please
and thank you in advance
of further climate pathologies.

The Perpetual Beginner Poet

This may come as large surprise,
but I did once take a beginner’s poetry class
which I often confuse with my beginner parenting class.

In which we learned good verse
and voice
have structure
pattern
imprinting rhythm
rich metaphoric content
perhaps even epic regenerative story,
assonant bouquet,
climates of hue and cry.

Who would or could a poet be
or hope to at last become
and yet unresponsively disagree?

Not me.

Even so,
if what I write
cannot resonate within your calling day,
and hopefully tomorrow
and resiliently flow on back
through all your best, not worst,
imagined yesterdays,
Then we are not yet our resonant poetry
so it is not so richly mine,
nor true poetry at disfamiliar all
of any kind
or mean spirit
natural
or unnatural.

Strong poetry cannot flow anonymously
autonomous.

My poetic muse shrinks,
like wound from salt,
from capital competing
absent co-infested resonance
resiliently wounded assonance
cooperative co-governance
restorative resilience
of integrity’s best eco-aspirations.

Poetry
with green me
grows not only rhythmic swell
and political ebb,
but also liberating healthy smell
and not so hoarding ego fell.

Poetry praises time we share
nakedly co-resonant,
resplendent as spiritual underwear
inviting nature’s brilliant subharmonies
to speak again full-voiced revival choir
without degenerate
autonomous
naked despair

In which we learn good verse
and voice
have structure
pattern
imprinting rhythm,
rich analogic content,
perhaps even revolutionary story,
assonant bouquet,
climates of secular hue
and sacred silent cry.

Love’s Great Sanctuaries

Those who win the day
are those who choose love
instead of hate.
Rev. Dr. William Barber

Those who exclude victim inclusion
disrupt everyday sanctuary
for addicted bully perpetrators,
not unlike ourselves.

Those who dream sanctuary all FullMoon night
are those who choose uniting integrity
instead of egocentric universal mendacity.

Those who win each Mr. and Ms. Christ day
are those who choose to believe
Christ was Jesus extended family name
instead of Hate,
evangelically disabling anthro-centrism,
fundamentalistic disassociating from messianic eco-restorations.

The magic of loving messiahs,
like the enchantment of Christmas,
is deeper LeftBrain learned and taught
as more about being fully present to healthy eco-wealth
To be less about becoming egocentrically full
of sufficient political presents for All.

Those who restore everyday magic
are those who choose MotherEarth Love
instead of negative ultra-violent patriarchal Hate
punishing sins and crimes
vengeance offensives against revenge
for sins against MotherEarth’s
health of Ms. ChristSoul–

Ecopolitically housed through history’s sanctuary cathedrals
cooperatively co-governed celebrations
for multicultural green reforesting projects
purposes
plans
procedures
policies
polypathic protests.

Deep learning sanctuaries
are ecologically therapeutic environments
are ecopolitically resilient regenerations
are GreenChrist Mentors
are EcoTherapeutic Bodhisattva Advocates.

Those who win each enchanting everyday
by choosing co-redemptive Love
over demi-urgent fundamental Hate
against healthy
multicultural
EarthSanctuary.

HummingBirds and SpiderWebs

Where might we see
yin’s silent voice
surfing on a windstorm?

Where might we hear
AnimaMundi,
speaking with GrandMother MoonLight,
for octave systems
through PositivEnergy stringing words
of Mother Spider,
instinctively born
of fractal RNA wombs

Seeds of potentially perennial,
revolvingly dynamic,
unfoldingly systemic
spirited GeoLogical Time
Rhythms
ZeroCenter Zones of Pattern

Yet HummingBird Yang
of vibrant Joy
co-arises,
square fractal dances
flights consciously exercised
growing us joyfully smarter
than we really can fly

Northern up
Southern down
Western sunset backward dominant,
LoseLose dualdark
cosmology
Eastern dawn of Spring reborn
WinWin forward baptized
in resilient ecotherapies.

PostMillennial PositivEnergy
dialectals,
dialects of ZeroZen Tao
spoken ecometrically
as sung polyphonically by yin Spider’s
nutritional nesting Energy–
joyous celebrating networks

Octaved spider webs
with polypathic LeftBrain emergent
scales of flight
hovering joyous HummingBirds.

SouthernSoul with NorthernSpirit
Wild WinWin Revolutionaries with WiseElders

Young yin-webs
network hosting
listening for

HummingYangers.

Where might we hear
yin’s silent voice
humming through a windstorm?
