Visiting the Buddha

We were visited by a baby
yesterday.

It felt good to bow
into her glittery brown eye level,

To speak of whatever came to mind
which was mostly about her truth
and blossoming beauty

Knowing she would not judge
and would listen
patiently
as long as I might care
to continue our song
of aging story.

Her response,
to continue sleeping
or to smile
while feeling
feeding eye to eye
mutual warmth

This is what I remember
wanting most
to speak about,

To remember
on this Memorial Day

Visited not yet by a victim
of war
but by a wise innocent
for peace.

Watching the HenHouse

Once upon Trump time,
Free-range,
organic,
totally uncaged brown
and black
and even white
and all things in-between hens
prepared to vote for more green climate health
for indoor/outdoor good-egg chicken family values
planning to optimize healthy wealth
green ecoschool henhouse natural-spiritual remodeling
for deep and richly wide learning
to bilaterally listen
before and after
cooperatively speaking,
especially when rewriting history
and transubstantiating sacramental scripture,
outer henifestations
of inner RealTime felt organic experiences.

Anyway,
there were two candidates,
and possibly more,
to facilitate their Future Search
work that reconnects Past
health to wealth
ego/eco abundance
non-violently practicing inside/outside egg nurturing values
for at least the next SevenGenerations.

One was an aging unprivileged GreenHen
some saw as having lost touch
with their own non-elected
non-elite
hen peck-ordered around
and bullied lives
of single
and competing brown and black and white hungry hens
thirsting for more and better fast food
and sweetgrass water
and organic soil
with lots of grubs for snacks.

The other candidate was the Fox,
who was,
not surprisingly, supported and endorsed,
occasionally worshiped,
by FoxNews
and other ego-privileged natural evolution competitors
hoarding fried chicken assets
even though that cost
less hens available for future Fox generations
of consumers and producers.

The Fox
promised his own egocentric watch
to overlord the HenHouse
promising to eat all alien hens,
outside our protagonists’ organic health-planning walls,
first, for breakfast,
then clear out the unprivileged hen-pecked
sinful chickens, preferably plump and robust, for lunch,
and their annoying little chicks too,

And DJ Fox merely smiled
and twittered
and “We’ll see” threatened and bullied
in nonresponse to Mainstream Media questions
about who is fair-game left, or even right,
for his health-wealthy Fox dinner
in dark failing future FoxDen
of mendacity.

Who do you think the chickens chose
to co-facilitate their plans to live happily,
cooperatively,
even actively democratic,
and healthy climate
ever non-violently after
lack of BadNews terror and drama history?

I can’t terrify you
with which candidate
became this henhouse anti-facilitator
against an EcoVillage Future Search
for Work and Play That Reconnects
chickens messing with foxes
and Foxes WinWin playing with powerful OrganiChickens,
but I can give you a finger-licken hint

The youngest chicks for health care receiving
and giving happy peeps in return
were not allowed to peep-vote,
nor was the slightest peep even listened to
about disabled sky is falling alarms
of annoying prescient consciousness
feeling fatally overpopulated Fox privileged climates
meant HenHouse future pathology

When Foxes are left to watch
and despotically rule
and do all the fast fried food
Foxy ChickenBusiness As Mendaciously Usual
it’s hard to conclude
all HenHouses lived happily
or even quasi-cooperatively
ever timeless after.

At best
difficult to predict climate health
indoor and outdoor
while ignoring the thirsty peeps
of depressed
repressed
suppressed Earth PolyPathic Chicks
still in daily HereNow polyphonic love
with cooperatively-owned
Ego/Eco HealthWealth School.

Beloved Sacred Communities

Prisons fester further desecrating guilt by association
as churches
and synagogues
and temples
and mosques
foster sacred innocence through re-association,
communion of the wanna-be saints
and Bodhisattva suffering warriors
for EarthRights Peace and Justice.

When our faith communities
feel like monoculturing monotheistic prisons
of fundamentalism,
then our non-elite prisons
begin to sound more like gospel protests
against further guilt containment
through hypocritical disassociation
with the great unwashed sinners
and economic cheaters,
and politically competing liars,
and lack of polypathic lovers.

Ecology is about oikos,
home,
habitats of and for progress
noticed in two appositional directions;
progressive enrichment of nature-spirit systems
and regressive decomposition,
loss,
guilt,
failure,
heading toward death unless balance can be restored
to help our systems
become more cooperatively resilient,
from prison through cathedral
through capitols of nation-state investments.

If decomposing guilt
can grow through imprisoned associations
then no ecological surprise
that regenerative innocence of Bodhisattva Saints
can grow through polypathic
polyphonic
polycultural
poli-economically balancing
positive nature-spirit good faith communities.

If we removed more not-funda mentalistic bad faith
from GoodNews communities,
then perhaps we would become clearer
about how we each and all live love between guilt
and innocence,
associated with fellow prisoners
and hardy integrity of mutual trust investors.

Prophets of prison habitats
as our own defensive nation-states
grow in violence
and enslaving racism
and addictive sexism
are tragic comedians,
self-fulfilling and perpetuating
hate and fear futurists
predicting necessary further bad descending climates
of evil ecopolitical faith
and further Business As MightMakesRight Usual
guilt by disassociation from ecological wisdom.

Mentors of good faith communities,
polypathic and polycultural health outcome predictors,
investors,
are, sadly,
about as likely to be found on death row
as in the back row of kneelers and prayer rugs.

Our loss of faith in a resilient nature-spirit future
is also our gain in bad faith resolves
to continue disassociating
from impending climates of violence
and supremacist nationalistic racism
and monoculturing sexism

Imprisoning separations
inviting regenerativity of GoodNews,
sacred ecological reweavings
re-integrations

Suffering and guilt and grief
inviting healing of cooperative ecotherapies
from death row to front pew,
EarthTribe patriotic health
of good faith solidarity.

An anti-ecological denialist notion of systemic ego-identity
derives from over-active disassociations
from our native nature-spirit imprisoning wombs
inviting rebirth
into Left with Right
Ego with EcoConsciousness
of prisons opening revolving doors toward good faith
and fundamentalism’s bad faith closed doors
against EarthTribe PolyPathic Solidarity.

To be present to our own imprisoning pain
is to grow toward communities of habitual polyculturing outcomes,
cooperative economic investment
in political solidarity,
mutual trust among all Sacred EarthTribes,
living in profoundly sacred animated forests
and oceans
and deserts
and full through new moon stardust skies.

Beloved EcoPolitical Communities,
where half sacred cooperatives Yang-full
also see and hear and feel
notnot half degenerating Yin-emptying
flow of nondual co-arising
double-binding WinWin
wu-wei
Tipping Points toward TaoTime.

Blessing of Innocents

May there always be a God/dess for you
a Messiah with you
a Kalki in you
a Maitreya of you
a Twelfth Imam as you.

May there always be a God/dess
who sees her/his best self through your eyes,
who hears his/her most beautiful song in your ears,
who smells our most transporting fragrant presence
as you.

May you always breathe
and beat your heart
with and as,
in and for,
our divine Earth God/dess;
some Creative Becoming with a higher pay scale
than the Tooth Fairy.
