Silent Sacred Spaces

I’m noticing
you’re not noticing
I’m starting to look for
what you’ve already heard
with anticipation
overpowering my internal anxious voice
with calm
and kind compassion

When Other disharmonious human voices
speak of win/win choices

Or sing
a right-handed dance
within my balanced EarthTribal range
of listening
for sacred silent choice.

I become
my still-maturing surprise,
replacing my “Other” anxiety,
awkwardness
disappointment

About unfocused AnthroVoice insecurities
in suffering Other’s compassion,
insufferable curiosity,
predative empathic touching,
yet igniting mellow multicultural waves
of resonant pastel sound,
resilient brilliant sight

And these in-between times
silent solitude sacred rests
between transparent syncopations
of impatient human sounds,
inhumane frowns

Not interacting with same room
or screen-time voices,
thoughts
verb-tainted feelings,

These soulful un-nouned bests
have, until recently,
invited anxious boredom,
apathy,
depression,
aching loneliness,
emotional apartheid,

While now
in this human sound silence
of co-redemption
I absently reach out
for deeply exploring
sounds of Simon/Garfunkel’s silence.

Negative and positive felt voices
provoking newly found choices
liberty of equanimity,
good humored curiosity about anxiety
stress
trauma triggers

Cooperatively reaching
for anticipating
future eco/ego therapy
indigenous healing
wisdom securing
conserving liberating
internal/external co-passions,

Smiles
and frowns,
ups
and downs,’
transcendent lights
and immanent powers,
remembered lives
projected loves
for capitalized risks
minimized by win/win nutritional opportunities
for nurturing silent
calm and kind
time outside/inside co-invested bliss.

Parsing Partisanship

Gay Rights are not Civil Rights
grabs my Yahoo facetime
fast-paced news rhyme

Civil Rights are not just Gay Rights
on my administrative time
bounces back a Left WhiteHouse reprise
that Civil Rights
include Gay Rights
as a necessary subset,
but not multiculturally sufficient anthem
to cooperative network define
a green ecosystemally co-passionate refinement

Sacredly inspired divine,
panentheistically supported,
indigenously wise
green party spirited natural civil rights

Are not
uncivil capitalist
straight Anglo Corporate Rights
are not particularly humane Civil Rights

Grabs my bilateral
dipolar-coarising attention
consciousness
awareness
green woke upness
ecofeminist positive
also means healthy and safe awakeness

“Gay Rights”
by your definition
on my Right,

Are those also “Women’s Rights”?

And/or “Lesbian Civil Rights”?

What about “Transgender Rights”?
if you are a tadpole
or a flower,

Would that be OK for you?

What about “Anal Intercourse Rights?”
for mammals?

Then there’s the ever popular
“Abortion Rights”
for trees
dropping her nutty egg seeds
before their time
in times of drought
and fire
and sensual deprivation;
lack of environmental support.

Could “Civil Rights”
include “Bisexual Rights”?

Would these be “Up-To-Half-Homosexual Heterosexual Rights”?

Or, more simply,
less schizophrenically
less blatantly half secular/half sacred
less curiously half wiki-spiritual/half natural

Not quite so mentally unhealthy
bipolar RightWing dominant
parsing
and non-parsing
rumination
ruination
of what might have been
bicameral “Healthy Democracy Rights”

Which are not UnCivil Rights
of AnthroSupremacists
to commit ecocide

While LeftWing
RightBrain repressives
wonder why their RightWing God’s
LeftBrain dominant monotheistic
monoculturalism
defines conservatism only negatively,
uncreatively,
degeneratively,
dissociatively,
dissonantly,

As economically
and politically needed
to reassure us
LeftBrain
Straight AngloCorporate worldview
on restoring EarthRights to Basic Climate Thrival
really must lack Win/Win green
emotive
contextual civil rights intelligence
of the average
woke up synergetic ecofeminist.

Regardless of species
doing their basic sensing
and complex feeling
personal
and global
and tribal
and familial
and multigenerational
and polycultural
and panentheistic
and systemically integral
sacred health care
organic civil rights homework

Which is what I was supposed to be doing
when
Gay Rights are not Civil Rights
grabs my Yahoo facetime
fast-paced news rhyme
and it’s not yet dawning
Sabbath spacetime.

Sunday morning nap time
is not uncivil screen time
for writing not really news rhymes.

Surprising Elders

I wonder if there are Elders
wise
or more perennially surprised
who, looking back at their youth,
regret all their erotic time
invested in having peak
experiential sex,

And wish they had, instead,
done something, most anything,
more left brain dominant,
more theoretically
politically correct,
more economically prominent.

I so hope not.

Better off, I feel sure,
invested in abundant splatters of messy,
sometimes musical, health

Than overly divested
away from EarthTribe’s gloriously peaking race
carried away by abstemious matters
of more disciplined pace
for securing capital infested wealth.

Punishing Silence

Do we choose silence
not only as a tool
for self-protection
when speaking
our latest chapter stories
feels unsafe?

But also stern silence
may become a weapon
to ward off apathetic enemies
of our straight
hopelessly white
monotheistic
monopolistic
patriarchal capitalist
enemies

Who would not seem to care
to love us
more than we ourselves
can love them
as part of us
right now
left multiculturally
and ecofeminist
silenced here.

As you go
and liberally grow silent,
I may quietly
then traumatically
hear,
as isolating time
sticks ominously by,

“I am not your constant un-masked friend,”
and, thereby,
an ominous self-fulfilling prophecy
emergently erupts
in punishing response,

“I cannot remain
your therapeutic good-times,
vaccinated against silent unease,
healthy
co-empathic musing friend,”

To trust when skies grow silently dark
and night descends
beyond despair
to safely share
stressed Trauma

Itself first felt ray
of restoring justice promise
despite this loss of salvific
passioned hope.

Prosperity losses steal
from future compassion
already while first silenced weapons
dream denying
relentless truths of suffering
lack of healthy opportunity
to speak our fears
out loud
with those who trust
our trembling tears.

Tasty Democratic Health

Tasty democratic roots
are made of trusted vines

Healthy democracy
does not chronically debate
derail indigenous theocracy
diminish pursuit of individual liberty
to co-invest in political
and religious
and sexual powers
of cooperatively focused light
polyphonic harmony

But does compassionately refine
individual human freedoms
to do whatever successful private investors
and elite asset owners
can easily afford to self-define
anthro-divine

To monoculturally become
whomever the almighty
divinely White privileged
CAPITAL monotheistic
LeftBrain PATRIARCHALLY empowered,

but not bicamerally
democratically enlightened,

individual wants to self-righteously
hoarding ego-infested,
mistrust conserving
secularizing
formerly sacred regenerativity
including ecofeminist Gaian goddesses

Indigenous wisdom
of cooperatively owned
and managed Gaian EarthMother experience
valuing healthy wealth
of abundant co-inhabiting care.

A healthy democratic co-investor
does not aspire
toward merely individual capital
exclusively growing wealthy
ego autocracy,
monotheistic plutocracy
retributively punishing kleptocracy
fallen educational consumers
of ignorantly de-contextualized pedagogy
miseducating for further patriarchal supremacy

Heading toward further scarcity
of capital wealth
hoarding plutocracy
anti-global organic health care,
planetary climate wealth share.

But a resiliently healthy
multiculturally trusting compassion,
liberally liberated from egocentrism,
from RightWing anthrosupremacy,
from fantasies of omnipotent capacity
to avoid natural organic suppressions
of all those actively distrusted
increasingly polarized Others

Win/Lose competing
rather than Win/Win cooperating
to establish universal power,
unitarian light,
and Yang/Yintegral democratic energy

Polypathic restraints
against competing for monopolies
over-invested in stock-infested cash
against Earth’s sacred
natural/spiritual/physical/mental
cooperative trusting health

Harmonic wealth subclimates
of richly regenerative
bipartisan trusted
economic ecosystemic brilliant light
politically empowering
HealthTrust co-governing
EarthJust restorative resources

Refined by Earth’s historical experience
sprouting tasty democratic wealthy roots
made of regenerating healthy vines.

Roots and Blossoms

Earth’s organic systems wonder
if both of these could be true:

Poverty and ignorance breed violence.
Capitalism and patriarchalism feed conflict.

If so,
is the first
or the second
history’s enculturing root system?

And is the Other
our competitively threatening
viral blossom of oppression?

And EarthMother wonders
if natural empowering
is also spiritual enlightening
cooperative Wisdom
inviting humane peace,
less dissonant debate praxis
preferring to invest
in more resilient dialogue practice
instead.

In dialogue with Monica Sharma’s “Radical Transformational Leadership: Strategic Action for Change Agents,” p. 13.

Women’s AnthroCultural Services

“I didn’t know conversation was an art”

“For a woman, everything is an art”

“I don’t think I want to be a woman”

“Ah, my dear, someone has to do it”

receive It

worship It

seduce It

entertain It

absorb It

tickle It

inflate It

wash It

taste It

distract It

flatter It

accept It…

Note: These four one line quotes from a dialogue between an older and younger woman are extracted from p. 144 of Asha Lemmie’s excellent novel, “Fifty Words For Rain.”

UnSpirited Sexuality

Secularization of nature
begets secular demotion of sex
rewinds reminds reversing time
before Western therapists
of ego issues beget eco-healing medication
including secularizing meditation
into mind full of LeftBrain dominant
patriarchal
capitalization,
commercially marketed commodification
of what were once more private worship services.

Reducing sexual cooperative co-investments
to merely natural reproductive lust
or untouched genital bust
is a LeftBrain reductive Nature v Spirit sin
against Holonic Animus Mundi,

EcoWomanist Yintegral Flow
of nonverbal
bilateral ego/ecosystemic
co-empathic
co-binary
eco-binding attachment feelings

Divine climaxing integrity
and humane humbling memories
of fully engaged authenticity
mirrored in our Yang/Yintegral reconnecting
remembering
re-imaging sexual activity
of sacred Muses
embodied music and rhythmic dance,
fractal
frictive
flowing sexuality.

Sexy
jazzy
gospel good authenticating news
could reduce secularizing
traumatic
reductive
estranged stress disorders,
negative pathology,
unhealthy lack of democratic synergy
spiritually natured energy
mindful integrity.

Touch the Earth, Reach the Sky

Touching Earth,
reaching sky.

I walk salt shores
where all Souls fly
over joy’s ocean,
under sad bad lands
my faith in quests
we could understand.

Touch this Earth
to feel our sky.

Wise fools ask
our reasons why,
In glad lives
our answers glow,
in sad love
we learn to grow

To heal our Earth
and teach this sky

We are born
while I shall die,
Life’s my time for in between,
to build you a star,
to chase our dream

Touching Earth
while feeling sky

Hugging laughter
feeds my cry,
May I see
what we can give
for future’s child
to sacred live

We touch this Earth
to reach light’s sky

Soaring courage,
healthy high,
All Souls joining
in Earth’s flight
to touch Her right
I reach through night
for love’s last
last
last splendid sight.

This variation on Grace Lewis-McLaren’s hymn  (#301, Singing the Living Tradition) is dedicated to All Souls-PlanetEarth, especially New London, on the occasion of our Great Return, September, 2021.

Moaning Out Meaning

The meing
and mining
and mowing
and moaning
and meaning of life
could not be so different
for girls and boys,

She and he and s/he speaking indifferent
hearing purpose

Enlightening wealthy spirit mess
empowering healthy nature nest,
polyculturing Earth’s most profoundly beautiful
and resiliently truthful
nonviolent EarthPeace future
empowering health investiture

And sacred enlightening safety
for all EarthTribe duty
regenerating mature
degenerating immature
fighting integrity’s great green
transpositional culture.

Future meaningful prediction
depicting past prehistoric light
and power
and energetic meaning redaction

Of Heavenly boys and Earthly girls,
surfing oceans and organic lands,
raining waters in fertile soil
expiring seeds and inspiring eggs
of bicameral toil

Consciousness of EarthTribe’s meing
mining
moaning for more cooperatively resilient
co-empathic
compassionate post-sacred meaning

Contextually integral
polypathic sensory synergy,
multiculturally cerebral
polymathic energy
in meing
and down mining
and out mowing
and deep moaning
and wide meaning
of love’s co-passioning potential.
