The GiveAway Song

As her EarthDay drum calls out
to inside outside severance

Amid EarthTribe’s gathered laughter
and sorrow,
speaking
and listening,
singing
and silent witnessing,

Earth’s wealth
leaks nutritional health
gifts sharing value with every messiah
in sunshine circles
of care giving
and receiving
sacred shifts
toward cherished bright esteem.

In this sacred win/win culture
of indigenous compassion,
all celebrants cooperatively steward
gifts circling through reciprocity
and back toward MeWe integrity
again.

We dance in sacred circles of meaning,
not merely in secular cause-effective lines
for capitalizing straight efficient purpose

We learn to share our passion
while watching red berries
offer up their healthing gifts
from strong-hearted root systems
co-empathic,
synergetic nurturing networks.

Small seeds
cherished gifts
reminding We to Me
Mother Seeds make merry
underground,
beneath humane hearing.

EarthDay gifts
trust me,
and us,
to uphold our sharing systems,
disperse our safe and healthy seeds
to each new sacred place
to know
and grow,
which is good for berries
and their students

Reminding elders
all win/win flourishing
is mutually healthy thrival
flow.

Depressing anxiety
about future certain consumer losses,
like mortality
of ego’s timid bare humanity,
extract possibilities
for healthy Earth Day resilient impressions
at every future imagined turn
to hoard more gifts.

In healthier indigenous EarthDay circles
living lands are teaching gifts,
not subservient property
for supporting self-convenienced students

Inside looking
and listening through a screened speaker
not noticing Earth is first
a birth of whole-sum seeds
before we close our hardened doors
for protecting empty closed mines
without a humanely engineered
shovel for digging hidden
hoarded inside treasures.

We are EarthBound
by a win/win covenant
of regenerative reciprocity
breathing in healthy gifts
breathing out wealthy shifts
winter and summer,
predator and prey,
fire and grass,
night and day,
dying and living
power dark and bright lights

Cosmic dancing
co-gravitating gifted muses
wrapping and unwrapping
Earth Days and Nights again

In this dance of the giveaway
we remember Earth springs forth
and harvests back songs
we need for win/win
hoarding lose/lose mourning
passage of polar bears,
silence of cranes,
death of rivers
transporting gifts like
winter’s wounding snow
swelling banks
expanding loss

Perhaps too late
for future healthy regenerations
we may, this Earth Day,
recognize dazzling gifts
from MotherEarth’s womb
as WeMe teeters on the cusp
of our Great UnGift Extinction.

Let us hold tall
and spread wide
our liberally loving gifts
of our own cooperative making
copassionate warming acts
transcendently soaring ideas
perfect regifting tools
are not offensive weapons
fiercely defending against loss
of all Earth’s days
now given before

Tomorrow’s gifts of mind
hands
heart
voice
silence
vision
revision
offered up
and out,
down
and in
on behalf of sacred Earth.

Whatever our gift,
we are called to give
and regive,
to dance for renewal
of EarthTribe’s world
in return for MeWe privilege
to breathe in
and out
Earth’s living love.

I want to claim poetic license but also to not tread on Kimmerer’s copyright. With gratitude and in the spirit of Both/And dialogue.

Sacred Carnal Custody

Jesus was a patristic carpenter,
a non-nationalistic builder
of goodnews communal structure,
a nonviolent communicating leader,
a multispirit-natural facilitator,
divinely humane bilateral
spiritual health is natural wealth
facilitator of recreative green
and blue
and red-blooded sensory communion.

I am a mere custodian
of messianic intention,
practice,
discipline,
caring for co-empowerment,
vocational integrity,
ecopolitical EarthHealth and Safety
re-enlightenment,

A custodial health care giver
and wealth sensational receiver,
practicing this sacred vocation
of kindness
for improving healthy sensory outcomes,
scouring memories
and green clean freeing imagination
of multiculturally furnished resonance,
harmonically polishing resilient gleaming finishes

Of climaxing compassion
recreating passionate

incomes extending polycultural communion
more free of risking segregated collapse
of healthy form
with wealthy functions.

Cooperative custody of wide spatial

Physical sensory longevity care

Natural Seeds With Spiritual Roots

I can see difference,
but also sameness,
between neurological networks
and internal/external co-empathic sensory experience

InBetween metaphor and analogy

Of confluence/dissonance
with and without

Persistently
devilishly against all we feel holonic

A root metaphor
for this win/win creative intention
invites a seed’s natural potential
to experience a healthy spiritual root system

of naturally spirited EarthGaze

Nights and Days

Slow Grown Grace

Poetry
like unpartnered,
unteamed,
slow dancing

However rhythmically precise,
concisely devised

Does not dance well
in a highly competitive
youth-oriented
commercial entertainment market

But,
does better
in cooperative venue voices,
disproportionately enthused by ancient women
investing in large-print choices,

Preferring off-line accessibility,
and not too expensive!

More deeply embedded
in soulful
left and right co-empathic
slow grown engagement.

Empowering CoInvestments

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

Cooperative motives
for proactive economic health investments
are harbingers
re-enactments
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
short-term
and decontextualized
un-historicized local outcome

But also,
restorative economic justice
moving toward global cooperative communication peace
depends on mutually non-competitive
non-violent
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
gifting
gracing
forgiveness
liberating redemption
from isolation,
non-communication,
excommunication,
marginalization,
criminalization,
starvation,
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
competitive
extractive
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
regenerations.

Graceful Barbara

To Barbara

When Peace Warriors fail to breathe further into Earth’s sacred time,

they do thereby commend multicultural We

The People who are faithfully left behind

to continue cooperatively breathing out

our Bodhisattva Anthemed Paradise.

Grace…

Well, love then…

Most certainly compassion

Passions know we so richly deserve
what is Earth’s most passionate need,

Resonant voices belong
in Earth’s impassioned longing,

Resilient humane health passions
cannot cost Earth’s desecrated illness,

Knowing we so robustly reserve yintegrity
of Earth’s most luminous yanged out synergy,

Grace breathes in multiculturing laughter
and spews her wealth
of Earth’s polycultural health,
in and out
no longer inhaled
so no stronger exhaled
as any less
than our continued breath
in Earth’s most graceful solidarity

Of EcoParadise
breathed sacredly in pace together
and out for EarthGrace,
Passion’s timeless EgoPleasure

Breathing in Me
timeless revolutions
still breathing out healing faith
in EarthTribe wealthy We
non-violently

Recommending graceful meanings universal
Black EcoFeminist Lives expiring out
EarthMother’s wealthiest pray

Recommencing secular uniting purpose
enough for this continuous,
yet right now feeling discontinuous,
internal healthy day

Of inside unspoken grace…

Well, then bold
as well-sung love…

And, most healthy danced
EarthWealthiest compassion.

Not Often Enough

Sometimes,
not often enough,
I connect with all the good Ones
who grow so much in me

And
when we re-member these times
lost in right now space,
We gather no grand finale harvest

But remain so very grateful
for whom We have been
and where We have gone
and when We might romp once again
before this time’s curious end.

Bending just, and unjustly, around
life’s next grateful
fateful
corner,

Zero summing all these great Ones
who grow so much in graceful We.
