Blues Boating Home

Human history is difficult;
hard pressed,
discovering
and rediscovering,
connecting
and reconnecting feelings
about therapeutic needs
and sacred wants
for peace
trust
joy

Through co-empathic singing passions
which may,
too often,
feel stressful

Irritating
depressing
stormy
before unconditional win/win regard
for Self AND Other
reconnect,

Like EgoTheistic re-ligion
and EcoMatriarchal
indigenously multicultural
wisdom

Of Ego/EarthTribe mutual becoming
more green therapeutic together
than win/lose competitive
dissociating
controlling and too egocentric
and too anthro-dominant
held too LeftBrain supremacist
apart.

On my drive back
to my blue turbulent home,
I struggle with postpartum depression,

Common when I separate
from spiritual sojourner musicians,
fellow wandering sacred wonderers
would-be soul-full,
not hopelessly ego-engorged, harmonizers
and intuitive dancers,
expressively embodied movers
and economic-political shakers,
mindful ecological leaders
and GoodNews infused chorus girls
and everyday win/win polyphonic boys,
maturely compassionate men and women
and exotic in-between
bodhisattva polytheists.

Why am I feeling irritated
against you?

What could I have said
and gestured,
and shared,
and done,
and not done
to let you know,
to let you in
on how unheard
unseen
and unappreciated I am feeling
as this evening,
this mortal life,
this sacred opportunity
slides
and swims
and sails by.

In more recent weeks
our original intent
to listen deeply
with informed compassion
for wounds
becoming unweaponed,
for win/win communion therapies
that join
conjoin
rejoin past win/lose traumas
feels unraveled,
sidetracked,
drydocked
in issues about pain,
suffering,
loss of control,
severances overwhelming renewals,
universal climatic turbulence
flooding remaining hopes
for unitarian green/blue EarthTribe
boating peaceful home.

Why do you seem so triggered
by alpha stressed competitions
with our sometimes surprisingly controlling
too egocentric
capitalistic spiritual director,
sacred leader,
ecopolitical peace activist,
theological love teacher,
ecological panentheistic mentor,
health-is-wealth core care facilitator,
multicultural mediator,
operations conductor
of musicians, at our musing
and amusing best,
and not cacophonously win/lose strategists
at our distrusting
and mistrusting worst.

I become curious
about why you want to control
our musical mountainous expression
of plain and solid standing
to sing together
by remaining distant
from my inside rolling oceans
of peak sensory
musical movement experiences.

Why do you seem less curious
about how I struggle to joyfully continue sailing
never, ever having known safe harbor
or healthy home portal,
on this straight white privileged place?

Sailing on this epic journey
for positive regard
that I know,
without shadows of depressing doubt,
will stand
and sit
and lie,
listen and speak and sing with me
as I am embraced
with all my woundedness
and all our co-empathic sacred brilliance
to joyfully celebrate,
quietly appreciate,
gratefully acknowledge
everyday sacraments
of kindred sailing souls

Making our blue ways home
under stars of full moon heavens
embracing revolutions
of therapeutic light
and traumatic night,
wondering

How frightening it feels
to age away from peak mental
spiritual
physical
natural control

Facing inevitable mortal degeneration
threatening to steal back
my sureness
that below Me
and within
We feel no motion,
no terrifying emotion
while standing firmly in control
of this plain
everyday
yet mountainous
musical event

Of rolling co-operations
and conflicts,
voiced and hidden,
in overwhelm surviving mode
so not able to access confident
curious co-thrival
co-passionate means
to deeply listen
and appreciate
being born to sail this Earth
together in this time
of climatic changing
blue boat swamping terror

Within the fathoms
of our turbulent oceanic universe,
traveling salt-teared Earth
driving home
wondering why you are now less curious
about why my fluidly
legato love story
requires a cappella blues,
reflective repetitions,
emotive nuances
as slow
and widely engaged,
deeply felt
as floating thoughts
diving into EarthTribe’s most sacred
peak systemic experiences

Blue blues
rolling through oceans
of warm
salty wet Earth tears
of universal compassion

ReMembering
human history is difficult,
hard pressed,
discovering
and rediscovering,
connecting
and reconnecting feelings
about therapeutic needs
with sacred wants
for peace
trust
joy
sacred mused harmonics.

Human History Class

Tempting to offer an anthropological history class
and call it Earth History,
beginning with our current
messy
riled up
LeftBrain emergently dominating
our fracturing Anthropocene.

While trust seems true
and wise
when our public educational system
holds up humanism
and capitalism
as, together, supportive
of our underlying survival
of the fittest evolutionary orthodoxy,

Over in the Religious Studies Department,
we enjoy a wider variety,
from monotheistic
through panentheistic,
of dynamic political
and economic EarthHealth History.

Cultural climate history
also feels true
and trusted
from a more inclusive lens,
remembering back
and back
and back

When Earth’s most robust
and resilient capitalism,
competitive organisms,
required an underlying universal
multicultural value
for win/win egalitarian life-norms
supporting robustly transactional
regenerative
positive
healthy
ecosystemic creolizing outcomes.

Where normative expectations
of cooperative rules
for human
and Other life-systems integrity
are absent,

Including healthy democracy
educational systems,

EarthTribes do not experience
a satisfying competitive atmosphere
of resiliently developed
win/lose zero-sum capitalism;

Instead,
throughout recorded
LeftBrain dominant
Anthropocene history,
humans decry lack of sacred integrity
as theft,
greed,
piracy,
toxic corruption,
viral eruption,
bad business deception,
egregious predation
technological militarization

Of these shunning
shaming
blaming things,
EarthWars evolve;

Not Trust
and Truth
and Integrity
through nonzero-soulful
healthy wealth

Of cooperative green economies
dustily uncovered
in Taoist co-governing Balance,
polypathic Zeroism co-binary ballast,

YangUniversal-YinUnitarian
win/win transactional
primally interdependent
relationships

Of SunLight/EarthPower energy systems,
synergetically co-gravitating
left/right bicamerally internal
west/east bilaterally external
north/south ecopolitically dipolar

Co-arising polyculturally healthy
co-empathic learning
ego-1/eco-0
not not win/win living
double-binary
both Left and Right
secular/sacred health
co-pedagogically interdependent

Regeneratively robust
cooperative healthcare
as experienced in safe
perennially enlightened/empowered
bicamerally resilient
educational systems

Offering an anthropological history class
called PolyCultural Earth History,
beginning with our current
messy
riled up LeftBrain
emergently dominating
our fracturing

The Choir Audition

Why does she know
laying our music down
raises musicality
reality up?

Does she also know
why my lips prefer to sing
in resonant Oh,
Oooooooh…
oozing round O’s
and singular Ah’s
free of mapping static lyrics

Lines sung
hung
rung right or wrong,
good marching when uniform,
bad when too shy
of improvising bold
multiculturing unity

Harmony musing
amusing spontaneous drifts
and rifts
of EarthTribe’s light
bright woke-up
out loud power focus

Searching out deep whole-sum liturgies
of octaved musicality
we share
when fine-tuned to listen
for our not-so-silent breaths,
anticipating life’s next cooperatively felt
and politically co-empowering
story.

Songs of sacred circling lines
and whole systemic spaces
clever linearly written,
yet never speaking totally predicted sounds
resonant transcendent
anticipating in-between joy
and silent
nonviolent
resilience.

I wonder if she feels
as I sometimes can do
that muses nurture music
as abusers remain
narcissistically
patriarchally
capitalistically competitive,
unsympathetic

Lacking indigenous co-empathic wisdom,
Yang universal
Yintegral unitarian
musical integrity

Of Earth’s sound tribes flowing
songs and rhythms patterning
natural narratives,
curiously intimate Earth Day
anthems

Dancing spirited
taoistic breaths
bicamerally cooperative
contemplating solidarity
sung clarity

Under a zillion twinkling
zen core inkling
starlit choral nights.

Listening for Healthy Relationships

I grow increasingly concerned
about living in an unhealthy monoculture
of educational
evangelical
judicial
legislative hubris

Rhetorically LeftBrain dominant
verbally debating
which empowered opinion leader
will improve my personal consumer powers
and ego-incorporated
greed productive profits

In this competitive big Dog
eats little not leftbrain dominant
feminized nasty dog
predative worldview

In which straight white male dominant
militarized
police state supporters
capital profit performers
for self-aggrandizing opulence
corpulence
corporate satiation

Slick as opioid addiction
to causing pain
supporting profitable relief
through drug-addiction management,

Corporate sponsored
unhealth
uncaring
inhumane unwealth
predation strategies

With no apparent worthy survivors
after we professionally
corporately
predatively kill prosperity
of all our individual
competitive pleasure-seeking consumers
off our superficial entertainment regimen
and away from our own RightBrain
cooperative
compassionate health care
environmental
sacred indigenous
natural/spiritual nondualistic
bilateral contextual intelligence.

What we need
therapeutically want
expect our teachers
clergy
judges
and elected representatives to wisely administer
is health and safety
of this
and future humane
regenerators of bicameral
bipartisan
multicultural win/win compassion,

Sacred
indigenous
health/wealth equitable care

So,
our universal EarthTribe
becomes more economically co-invested
in win/win political values

Empowering integral
holistic
equitable health care reception

Which is also
enlightening
trusted
safe wellness,
prosperity,
wealth care
cooperative EarthPeace production.

EarthTribe’s Adventure

War is not my wintry answer
when summer’s serene peace
remains a cherished question.

Late autumn’s year end Advent
sadly a anticipates late winter’s
grey unrelenting Lent

As Christmas traumatically
commercially prophesies
black Friday
before Easter mortality

Painful future passion story losses,
hopefully temporary,
yet now recently felt
with post-bimillennial stressors.

A global sensory climate of anxiety
and not anticipation,
of unease
and not health

Of crumbling democratic energy
fading public sensing health
and bumbling good governance wealth,

Lost in dogmatic
even fascist partisanship,
abandonment of healthy democracy
bicameral bipartisanship

Sacred Left
and secular BusinessAsUsual Right
religiously held monocultuiring privileges
overwhelming divinely humane
co-passionate polycultural serenity,

Unitarian integrity
of universal NewYear EarthTribe health
wealth resonant resilience.

How will this EarthTribe sacred solstice
harmonically resound
healthy democratic energy?

Spaciously serene peace
for wealthy therapeutic Earth
justice.

Consumer wars
are not my LeftBrain answer
when RightBrain healthy peace
remains my economically enlightened
and politically empowered
sacred
trusted
integrity-potentiated
question.

Night Silent Cross

How could an established Muse
sing and dance
invisibly transparent?

What could a mute Muse
not sound like?

Absence, without/within contentment
Neglect, without/within compassion
Divestment, without/in co-investment
Loss, without/in gain
Trauma, without/in therapeutic intent
Dissonance, without/in harmony
Risk, without/in opportunity
Sadness, without/in gladness
Negative, without/in positive
Unease, without/in health
Disability, without/in wealth
Disempowerment, without/in prosperity
Pathology, without/in healing
Darkness, without/in enlightenment
BiPolar division, without dipolar double-bind

Where we remain still
in silent loving room
at divine humanity’s cross

For natural with out/in spiritual you
ecological with out/in theological
non-anthrosupremacist
rightbrain compassionate
communicating Me with out/in We
bicameral Left with out/in Right
interdependent You.

What is our healthiest last choice
between seamless engagement,
vicarious entertainment,
and ubiquitous
ambiguous silence?

Resonant Muses

Tensions between professional teacher
and therapeutic integrity
are as old as cultural wars
between knowing scientific theories
and feeling artistic expressions.

How many times have I heard
I am a teacher
not a therapist?

How many times have we noticed
I can’t LeftBrain effectively learn
when I don’t feel
and hear,
can’t touch
and smell
and taste RightBrain healthy resonance
and long-term safe well-being resilience?

How long might it take
to wrestle with why “professional therapist”
sounds and feels
like a patriarchal capitalist
overly-commodified,
so suspiciously predative
oxymoron to my own compassion needs?

To feel
to personally
deeply and widely listen
learn
know thriving
co-empowered
humane
sacred solidarity futures,

Therapeutic wealth
of integral
educational health

Rooted in Left/Right bicameral balance
informed by polypathically enlightened
multigenerational
indigenous wisdom experience
of past
felt and touched
humane regenerators
courageous resonators
curious integrators
amusing muses
impassioned musicians.

If we are all disempowered empaths
with multicultural learning goals
I might better understand
universally therapeutic
polycutural
polypathic
polyphonic
communally polyvagal neurosystemic
and ego-preferred polynomial values

Are healthy
when ego-centers
transform from disabled
RightBrain interdependent prominence
to re-sourced
re-created
resonant
with indigenously sacred
transparent meaning
of integral well-being experience

Rediscovered in secular professional purpose
of compassionate vocational healing
co-intelligently restoring well-being relationship

Bicamerally re-storying
bilaterally communicated
binomial co-arising compassion

Of LeftBrain educated Truth
exhaled
after engaged by deep peace
inhaled
sacred Other listening
for integrity’s empowering
enlightened cooperative potential

Yet still,
today,
disabled EarthTribe Beauty,

Wrapped solidarity rapt
in synergy’s promised professional
therapeutic Trust,

Harmony’s impassioned Muses
echoing time’s evolving Thrust.

Shrouded Clouds

Shrouds mystically cover
sad shadowed environmental things
as clouds hover
over ego/ecological glad relationships,
Earth empowering,

Heaven enlightening
like outside’s natural winds
of evolving tradition
and inside’s spiritual breath
of revolving
bilateral
inter-communications

In/ExFormational BiCameral Systems
of prickly thought things
and gooey
shrouded
binomially felt co-relationships.

Dominant Recessions

LeftHemisphere cultural dominance
is difficult to pedagogically say
without warm RightHemisphere nurturing
to win/win play
ecofeminist prominence

Each
and every Green EarthMother
cooperative day

Gathering in slow winds of resistance
fire circle disarray
gardening soils display
cleansing waters
repassioning souls foreplay

Singing Her circling say
“We Are Our WinWin World”
while easily dancing
this bicameral TaoWay.
