Seen But Not Heard

I remain stuck
and struck
by children to be seen behaving
but preferably not heard
regardless of behavior,

But especially not heard criticizing their WiseElders
or, probably worse, mimicking them;
although some parents,
especially grandparents,
do see mimicry as graceful flattery
and occasionally a disgraceful lesson–
our children hope to see and hear us
behaving healthy, in return.

This feels very like future employees
to be seen functioning properly
according to corporate wealth-enculturing rules
and not to be heard
criticizing their WiseSuperiors.
Which may have nothing to do
with seniority or merit or wisdom,
much less all three,
or with WinWin supervisory therapeutic skills.

Seen obeying
and not heard criticizing
also feels like an evangelical fundamentalist
of God is Win
and the Devil makes us Lose–
a fascist punisher of bad behavior
and intrusive colonizing speech

Waiting his patriarchal turn
to play God
getting retributive even
bullying those disgraceful not listened to
rather than loving all (green) seen
as graceful learning DNA/RNA eco-mimicry.

Work That Reconnects
Future Searches
for God as cooperative Gaian Hypothesis,
syncretic PositivEnergy Democratic co-facilitators,
disciples of healthy grateful co-listening,
taking graceful health-directing turns

ReConnecting parents with children who watch
and act
and grow
with pride of co-creation
listening to EarthTribe voices
with polycultural
mnultigenerational compassion

These FutureSeekers
and developers
do not monoculturally confine
restorative voices of OrthodoxGod
to retributive NotSoWise PunishingElders.

WinWin CoDesigners
appreciate each voice of sacred dignity
including Wise NewBorn Integrity,
yang still with yin delight
Ego co-arising Sacred ElderEco.

Patriarchal doers
and global movers
and planet shakers,
but not plant terrorists and punishers,
are also FirstNation Matriarchal
holy global spirit-listeners,
from whom we originally Gaia re-incarnated,

Heard DNA with RNA more solidarity empowered
PositivEnergy Democracy
restoratively therapeutic
and seen less
as non-violent cooperative weakness.

And yet,
even with all that said
and probably not a prayer of being heard,
I remain stuck
and struck
by children to be seen
and preferably not heard
by God
and Allah
and parents
and future WinLose punishing employers,
monoculturing owners and colonizers
more than polyculturing co-operators
and DNA-RNA WiseElder creolizers.

Health Harvesting

Life seems
at times,
sometimes chronically usual
and sometimes more critically unusual,
Life seems to see a too large familial
and/or global space
between Winning outside less
and not Losing inside more,

Life unfolds feelings
differentiating between usually
and just sometimes
would be a healthier Win
for anger management
and depression
and manic bipolar issues,
polemics,
bipolarities Left against Right
too LoseLose negatively dissonant,
disassociating from authentic
integrity
health-wealth identity.

Yet,
in our next moment,
claustrophobic narrow ways
between Winning freedom and light
and not also Losing life and love
unveils a culturally treacherous walk.

A personal yet also political and economic walk
through a narrowing last second
in LeftBrain dominating Time
reincarnating EarthClimates

All, or most,
Either winning or losing
attachment to detachment
attacking
future life of humble sufficiency Left-Right fortune,
seen through Earth’s timeless creation RightBrain lens
casting past death
of Ego’s immanently inaccurate
decomposing misfortune
of untimely WinLose events.

Exhausting WinWin divine inspiration,
finding ribboned rivers of YangHeaded hope
between hearing Winning dipolarity
yet also not seeing bipolar Losing
what Sacred EarthTime never RightBrain autonomously owned
or could eternally LeftBrain co-redeem alone
while co-advocating creative
regenerative
creolizing
transubstantiations
between healthy Left
and wealthy WiseElder Matriarchal Right.

Bicameral life seems to see a larger revolutionary space
between Winning outside time more ecologically healthy
and not Losing inside sacred place
more theologically multicultural wealthy.

Searching Paradise Memories

Future Searching:
Why do YangBrain domination problems
recognize YangYin bilateral WinWin
resonant health resolutions?

We can deductively search
back in our own life-lines
to when we last felt we lived
within Ego/Eco peace
and restorative justice
healing times,
space,
organically connected place,
holy absence of Win/Lose retributive race.

We each,
alone,
as couples,
extending families,
neighbors,
community residents,
can engage deep PositivEnergy Democracy,
Ego/Eco sacred ecological learning.

We can each
imagine ecology
historically rolling time backward,
seasonally spiraling multigenerational
multicultural
polycultural
polypathic
polyphonic life-lines
in multi-regenerational reverse
of most resilient 4D RealTime.

Trees cannot do this.
Nor birds.
Or maybe they ElderRight-Left collateral can.
I cannot remember a co-invested time
when I could have doubted such well-seasoned solidarity.

But, for each innocent Us,
our last WinWin memory
of childhood
or beloved adolescence,
or mature healthy mentoring adulthood,
or WiseElder cooperative
creolizing moments
deep knowing LeftBrain ecology
as also Sacred RightBrain organic developmental theology,
rooted in Gaia as EarthParadise
solar and lunar
multi-regenerational experience,
feels inductively seductive,
non-reductively together wanted
longed for most
to become to-gathering
a unique and cherished enlightening sweetspot,
a sit-spot
of active contemplation
walked Ego and talked Eco

PreBeginning our WinWin
more than WinLose
joining toward Earth’s Yang-Yin WuWei

BiLaterally BiCameral BiLancing

Resonantly mythic mystery
lies within each ZeroZone cusp
of nature seeking spirit,

Dear New with Old England

Dear Local Boards of EcoSchool Education,
Departments of Environmentally Protected Walkable Transportation,
Cooperatively Maintaining Public-Private Works
and STEAM Play
and WinWin GreenGames,
Hysterical Historical Associations,
Social Work Departments of Climate Restorative Therapy,
and Public Health-Wealth Departments:

Did you leave anyone out dear?

Just the usual lower non-elite 10 to 50 percent
still graduating from WinLose counter-evolutionary
Right Might Fights
secularized deductive-only school.

You mean LeftBrain
Business As Ego Terrifying schools?

I’m not sure, really.
I never fully experienced
an urban capital-infested
RightWing militarizing
WinLose patriarchal
anti-WinWin matriarchal
BadFaith school.

Because you choose to see YangHere
with YinNow,
within breathed out
as manna ingested
co-invested eco-in.

Bread womb of life inside memories
as breath of matriotic love
outside images.

Anyway,
please continue with your Letter to English Editors
of Town Bulletins, dear.
Although why you need to write everything outloud
in strings of regenerative ecologic
while inside singing and dancing in matriotic octaves
is so much spiral dynamics transporting
and more fun,
I cannot polyphonically imagine.

OK, continuing–
Most of our composting neighborhoods
arose before oil and gas burners
mechanized transportation
for both domestic song and dance tranquility
and international militarized terror.

For this epic creolizing-colonizing reason,
we could enjoy a deeper learning opera network,
polypathically useful operations
for polyculturing healthy highways
and byways.

For economic co-invested reasons
we could choose more walkable
and bike-enabling neighborhoods,
more child and extended family friendly.

We could affordably choose
some narrower edible chestnut tree-lined lanes,
intersecting frequently
in community cooperative gardening squares
and WinWin organic Green triangles
and peace restorative pentagons

Rather than continuing to choose
last gasps
of a more drive-thru-able
stinky mechanical WinLose devolving city.

For political and social communication reasons,
we might better cooperatively own and manage
convenient and safer,
better nurtured pedestrian
street transporters
with warmer and cooler
and more therapeutic communicating destinations
nearby.

For good faith reasons
we could choose natural neighborhood homeo-nonpathological drugstores,
more outdoor ecoschools
and after-school Green STEM projects
and Green STEAM repurposing arts
and reforesting sciences,
more organic and locally-grown grocery stores
and nutritionally walkable transporting ecosystems.

For good health reasons
we could cooperatively choose
to place,
adjacent to bad breath congesting highways
leading out to bioregionally giant
polluted feeder interstates,
cooperative ecoschool
and goodfaith community gardening grids
of humane-breathable streets
for solar electric streetcars,
bikeways,
ample horse-powered bark and repurposed chip,
stone and hand-made brick ways
to make our healthy peddled and walked
therapeutic rounds.

We could choose transport and communication channels
flowering with urban reforesting projects and policies
and planting/harvesting co-investment procedures
for eco-cooperative living,
smart deep growing therapeutic residents
with repurposing life vocations
in local downtown ZeroZone permaculturing centers,
eco-centric port authorities
for feeding healthy mouths
like our Sacred Thames River
flowing outstream
to Atlantic
and Pacific,
Indian and Northern

WiseElder surfing Seas,
seasons New Moon drenched in dualdark Soul
and FullMoon pulled toward
climate ecotherapies.

We could choose
to guard against merely drive-thruable cities
against double-binding future-past
eco-walking climate ego-change
for reducing waste fueled overconsumption.

We need not always choose
individual ownership of mechanized technologies
over cooperatively enabling
diverse and re-acclimating resilient respiratory response
to future indoor-outdoor climate pathologies.

We could choose to not suck in
further competitive WinLose public-private investments
for monoculturing solutions
far short of polycultural deep sacred-secular learning
resonant resident resolutions.

We could choose
co-arising secular Left and sacred Right
ecological-theological healthy initiatives
to reforest
New and Old England’s most resonant
historical resilience.

Too many words, dear.

How many
too many?

Go for ZeroZone eruption
into Wondrous Beauty
and Secular Awe.

I was.
I did.
I am.

Well then,
great and beautiful transition done, honey.
Now who are we?
And where are we cooperatively becoming?

You are insatiable.

Only with co-arising you,
dearest.

When I Woke Up This Morning

I opened to my internet this morning
to see an icon of a woman
under bannered “News”

And thought it couldn’t be important
or it would be a picture
of a white patriarch.

I opened to my weather web
this mourning,
to behold an icon of a Goddess
knowing we continue Gaia weeping
important fatalities
if only to each other stormy wise.

I opened to my epic romance history
this morning,
to behold all-embracing love
of eco-passion seeking,
mysteriously surrendered,
absorbing beloved fascinations.

Secularized WinLose promises devolving
sacred threatening to decompose
all Nature’s right with left ways,
sacred-eco with saintly-ego.

I woke up this dolphin breathing morning
to know our spiritual breaded Manna
upside down,
inside eco-naturally Out,
as breathing in
toward Earth’s natural nurture.

I woke up this eco-systemic morning
to turn environmental sciences
into wickedly complex magic
cooperatively owning wondrous jazz
improvising rapture.

I woke up this morning
to this eco-political WinWin bargain
liberating from WinLose doldrums
of every day toward nondualistic night.

I woke up to light this morning
this dualistic life
marooned in WinLose devolution
through patriarchal colonization theories
that might makes fight right.

I woke up to dualdark this night
in non-dualistic secular/sacred epic consciousness,
marooned in WinWin delight
matriarchal creolizing RightBrain experiences
eco-nurturing flows
bilaterally WiseElder
EgoLeft with Sacred Eastern Right.

I woke up to a walkable
and bike ride-able
city this morning
nutritionally sufficient transporting
PositivEnergy Democracy CoOperators
investing in healthy soul-soil systems,
with zero zone inventory.

I woke up to foot and pedal
arm and paddle
this morning
investing billions of empowering hours
with goat and llama and horse powered
construction
and transportation
and animal and cart
and bicycle and kayak
maintenance and repair
cooperative co-investments.

Well,
I even woke up this morning
and we were on my mind,
repurposing
recycling cafes and gardens and farms,
extending healthy family
WinWin infrastructural networks.

Resilient
restorative agape ego/eco-systems
weathering colonizing fuel spikes,
confronting patriarchal over-investment climates,
thriving past this GreatYang Recession.

I woke up this morning
to an economic ecological system,
socially
politically
WinWin environmentally resonant.

I got up this morning
on a nurturing transportation system
WinWin walkably linked
with cooperative internal soul investments
supporting land
and sea
and air crisis therapies
invested completely
in long-term ZeroZone resilience.

I walked and talked out this morning
with metaphoric resonance
for ego/eco-consciousness
RightBrain felt,
intuited,
internal/external bilaterally flowing,
epically erupting,
abundantly transporting,
accessible, if matriarchally walkable, health.

I opened to my network this morning
to see a woman icon
under bannered BadNews

And thought it must be important
or it would be another fake news picture
of a white patriarch
speaking into a one-way microphone.

Potlatch Cafe for Gardeners

Dear Covenant to Empower Children, Inc.

I was in a Potlatch CoHousing Cafe
just the other repair-invested day
for both ego and eco therapy.

Our host introduced
this Potlatch SkillShare event
speaking to himself:

The less I share skills and resources
on cooperative terms
of common educational PositivEnergy endeavor,

The more plutocratically powerful
anti-social logic
of private learning affluence
elitism
entitlement
sexism
racism
tumors growing within healthier democracy,

Cooperative
paid-forward ownership
for restoring justice,
justice
as cooperatively-owned peace.

So it was
I thought of you,
covenanted to caregiving
and not corporate profit,
your mission to restore therapeutic health
to under-nourished children
and their not-full-healthing families.

Broken souls
with broken belongings,
longings for everything therapeutic cafes
and lending libraries
for computers and karaoke machines,
musical instruments and microphones,
speakers and costumes,
clothing and furniture,
bicycles and toys,
stories and songs
therapeutically
non-violently shared.

Repaired
ecotherapeutic co-housing and garden fixers
to extend family neighborhood co-responsibilities.

Cooperatively organized
by non-violent therapeutic innovators,
local restorative justice administrators,
nonprofit co-housing and community gardening
and nutritious interior-exterior landscaping,
inside-outside nurturing design,
cooperatively-invested and self-managing families
growing neighborhood organizations.

Covenants to prosper
tool and toy and school libraries,
co-housing recreation skill-sharing centers,
ego-ecotherapeutic non-violent churches and synagogues
and temples and courthouses
and cooperatively-owned city halls
co-investing in ego/ecotherapeutic businesses
and vocations.

Ego/eco-therapist interns
including skilled do-it-ourselfers,
professional hurt child cooperative parents
with childcare giving repair businesses,
apprentices interested in synergetic
therapy-related careers
in neighborhood planning and co-design,
outdoor installations and ego/eco-evaluations
of health care giving as love receiving.

This Potlatch Cafe and Garden
was multiculturally filled
to multigenerational capacity
with innovative self and other fixers
cooperatively learning
about facilitating ego/eco-repairs.

Which brings in new employee-owners
to local repair incubation businesses
and empowerment cafe members
undertaking and overtaking cooperatives
for ecopolitical health-wealth restorations.

Healthy keys to continually growing
Potlatch CoHousing Cafes
are those held by community WinWin
outdoor-indoor entertainment innovators,
street clowns and village green sages,
parental fools and innocent teacher healers
in love with therapeutic life.

Covenants to CareGive Children
and their cooperative co-housed families
coordinated and ecotherapeutically operated
by established hospitality foundations
like local cooperative-restorative climate-care governments
and nonprofit empowerment missioned organizations
committed to potlatch provide
investments and therapeutic non-violent staff
and volunteer intern cooperative familycare members
to coordinate co-housing residents
and neighborhood transporters
and young cafe and garden after-school volunteers.

Covenants for Healing
could grow cooperatively owned therapeutic cafes
and gardens
and multicultural multigenerational homes
accessible co-housing options
for nurturing community residents

So repairing,
rather than discarding,
people,
plants,
and things,

Incubating interdependent potlatch stewards
becoming post-millennial,
WinWin nutritional
for covenant-holders
and covenant-constituents
with secular-sacred dipolar co-arising faith
in PositivEnergy Democracy
for growing neighborhood
Potlatch Cafes
in CoRedemptive Gardens.

With warm hope
you are enjoying this child empowering day

Outdoor Community Cooperatives

Community outdoor innovators
are challenged by premillennial lack
of potlatch cooperative investments
paid-forward
by ZeroZone invested WiseElders,

Limited by Space
for developing multifamily co-housing
with cooperative community organic gardens.

Limited by volunteer outdoor ego-eco therapeutic
Time.

Limited by competitive economic grid
and profile assumptions
for future WinLose evolutionary models
composed of politically monoculturing
patriarchal assumptions,
not so much cooperative outdoor nurturing balance.

Some local governments,
not to Flagstaff any Portland names,
provide cooperative ownership support
by developing STAR restorative web platforms
to profile cooperative PositivEnergy Democracy activities,

Providing co-housing
PotLatch Cafe with Garden grants,

Connecting cooperative incubator
innovators
with relevant guild teams
and PositivEnergy co-investors,
pollinators,
soil and soul enrichers…

Shifting emphasis
from indoor individual households
to neighborhood-based outdoor gardening
and edible landscaping
and therapeutic open-air repair cafe
behavioral change,

Gratitude for mutual-gift WinWin opportunities
to appropriate WuWei scale
for community educational ego-eco balancing
skill-set sharing.

Local and individual Ego-governments
long to bring neighborhood goods
and cooperative services sharing
to outdoor belonging potlatch economies,
organic extending family awareness
with natural spirited potential
like polyculturing birds
sharing nest feathers.

Too few of us already belong
to reuse homes and gardens
where library inventories
are used by EcoSchool perpetual graduates
greatly expanding
and resiliently replicating
other co-housed outdoor universities
for deep learning neighborhood interns,
guilds for growing healthier wealth together
resiliently
polypathically
resonantly
polyphonically.

Too few urban gardens
are surrounded by cooperatively-owned
multifamily
multicultural
polyculturing
nature as PositivEnergy buildings constructed
deconstructed
reconstructed.

Housing and gardening composting together
in close nutritional guild proximity
easily sharing kitchen gadgets,
gardening tools,
food preservation,
transportation,
child and WiseElder cooperative care…

Vertical and Horizontal Cooperative
Outdoor-Indoor Organic Living
incubation libraries
with neighborhood cafe entertainment kitchens
on the ground and garden floor,
Fix-Us dining areas,
afterdark aromatherapy enlightenment,
organic co-invested nutritional enrichment.

Entertainment
by rose-oiled lamplight
creation and destruction mutual story telling
group and gospel singing
and game boards
where extending families face cooperatively together
speaking with and against
each allied other.

Community gardens
with cooperative neighborhood kitchen composting cafes
supported by WinWin entertainment and exercise and dancing and singing parks
and formerly vacant city lots
now linking
underutilized four-season space
with educational nature-spirit
PositivEnergy kitchens
and gardens
more nutritionally linking
neighborhood strawbale and cob pizza and barbeque ovens
feeding and growing
volunteer community cooperative innovators.

Such WinWin alternative incarnations
could polyculturally optimal scale
PositivEnergy network outcomes
upstream and downstream
from HereSpace as also NowTime.

In rather too long summary,
EcoHousing and Organic Gardening Neighborhoods
are cooperatively and peacefully EcoSchool suited
to provide healthier polypathic access
needed for wider co-investment
in private-public sector cooperative incubator
PositivEnergy nurturing
non-violent
restorative justice and peace programs
for outdoor and indoor climates
of resiliently synergetic healthy wealth.
