Universal HealthCare

Universal health
feeds unitarian safety
breeds universal health

A most patriotic way
we can live and breathe

In our diversely languaged nations
cultured continents
of global EarthTribe advocates

Interdependently loyal
to universal health
safety
and sacred intersectional
inter-religiously green
solidarity

Of universal sacred health
winning Earth’s unitarian safety
wealthing universal health…

ComPetitions for DisRegard

Am I unhealthy and unsafe oppressed,
suppressed,
repressed,
depressed?

Not really all that:
competitively impressive,
first through last impression
newsworthy,
enticingly marketable,
profitably commercial,
slickly corporate,
predatively intelligent

More camouflaged
unnoticed and undefined
unrefined
and, frankly, perhaps unstable
because of my environmental circumstances?
as liberal lovers
would have failing to ego-thrive anthrosupremacists
monoculturally privileged
and multiculturally misunderstood
underprivileged
shunned
and Othered

And/Or

Am I health/safety oppressed
because of my personal
bad ecopolitical choices?
like having unprotected sex
instead of going to the mall,

Not really reflecting on
wider and deeper context
like True Faith
and Healthy Happiness
monotheistically delivered
monopolistically endowed
StraightWhiteMale privileged
monoculturing LeftBrain transcendent
AnthroDivine judgment
falling shy
of unconditional regard

As win/lose divinely inspired Capital investments
support PatriarchalGod’s purely patriotic hierarchy
not-so-blindly selecting
who deserves Restorative Win/Win Justice
second
and third
and fourth chances

And who should not
escape Lose/Lose Retributive Dissociation
(repression, suppression, oppression, depression)

A social sympathy so thinly simpering
judicial powers are too comfortably scampering
to throw away personal freedom keys
with polarized dispassionate Disdain

Icing on Earth’s soggy cake
for feeding climate rabid
polarizing
angry
traumatized
lose/lose anthro-victims,
producers and consumers of Othering.

To get out from under-cussed non-classedness,
must I truly choose
between circumstantial ecological Voices
for resonant healthcare,
Or personal theological-felt internal Choices
for resilient wealthshare?

Do natural
polycultural healthcare systems
not co-arise
egowealthy green EarthPeace
spiritual co-investments?

So yes,
I guess,
answers to my oppressed prayers
by our liberal lover circumstances
and my conservational personal
integrating/desecrating
either Saint
or Sinner Choices

Do LeftBrain ignore
Both systemic conserving circumstances
And internal liberating intuitions

RightBrain questioning
interdependently unrecognized
NonVoices.

Economic Wounds

My capital investment wounds
don’t define me;
they refine MeWe
into Earth’s green peace
win/win strategic barrier
beyond which lies win/lose
and EarthLove v AnthroLife
nihilistic
entropic lose/lose
co-arising degenerative gravitation

MeWe have become
tragi-comedically

Trauma refines my humanity’s

as Therapy defines EarthTribe divinity’s

Where trust in healthy spacious Truth

Refines my depression impressions
inhibiting repression
disempowering right-integral mind
suppression
from and yet also toward
unenlightened
unhealthy
unsafe silos
of neglected Me
against oppressed We.

My greatest appreciations
are my slow-grown co-invested wealth songs
and spoken word resonant health choice

EarthMother’s cognitive/affective
double-binding verbal/non-verbal intellectual properties

Democratic Compassion

I believe,
rooted in limited personal experience
of unconditional love,
the purpose of democratic governance
is NOT FREEDOM of individual persons
segregated communities,
self-isolating economic states,
severed biosystemic regions,
patriotic partisan nation-states,
isolated continents.

I believe
even our deepest sacred meaning
for divine governance
is not freedom away from, or toward
god or country,
but to restore
maintain
persevere
in unconditional love
to and from
both divinely healthy
and wealthy humane government.

I believe
compassion is a secular public purpose
and deeply sacred
personally experienced and delighted
sacred meaning
for democratic governance.

I believe
freedom to express unconditional compassion
is the win/win means
to an EarthTribal peace
ending endless competitive win/lose debates,
retributive punishments,
greed-infested governance
of the individual oppressive person
repressive community
suppressive state
degenerative biosystemic region
rabid nation-state
exploited continent.

And I believe,
rooted in limited personal experience
of unconditional love,
this individual living health
is organic win/win wealth
unveiled in interdependent sacred webs
of EarthTribe’s living
co-passionate
green/blue planet.

Cooperative EarthCare

Where the Left
supports cooperative
respectful
integral
yet multicultural health care

The Right
conserves against future changes
in hierarchical wealth structures,
thereby augmenting competitive
ineffective class warfare

Rather than universal classroom welfare
where everybody can Left and Right bicamerally learn
healthy cognitive/affective resonant processing
of cooperative needs
and healthy wants

While the educational systems
we shape
and democratize
relearn the primal role
of cooperative positive
and negative competitive feelings

Trust/mistrust
that we are/are not
a gift species to empower all EarthTribe’s health
and safety

More than business as unenlightened usual
capitalist mistrusters
whose main faith is that we are
and must be
divinely ordained
StraightWhiteMale monotheistic God’s gift
to a sinful
unlistening
ungifted
uncaring
unhealthy
unsafe
former organic green garden
of now fallen Eden.

CoEmpathy
seeks internal absolution
from my own anthrosupremacy

Growing healthier polycultural experience
I want to pass through
my own monoculturing elitism,
too tolerably comfortable with apartheid,
with great anthro-loneliness,
narcissistically elite despair
about genocide
and ecocide.

Full multicultural health care giving
receiving
conserving
preserving
remembers gifts of trust
in EarthTribe’s polyculturing wealthy welfare

WholeEarth supported
by sacred gifts of sunlight,
divinely breathable air,
purely potable water
fertile empowering soil
domestic safety rules
for managing fire
and renewable fuels.

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.

When UnGifted

“A gift is different from something you buy, possessed of meaning outside its material boundaries. You never dishonor the gift.” Robin Wall Kimmerer

A social gift,
a gift for compassionate verbal
and nonverbal communication,
a healing gift,
is different from personal cash investment,

Possessed,
sometimes haunting, gifts
with sacred meaning
timelessly transcending
secular
egocentered
anthrosupremacist
monopolistic double standards,
double gifted/ungifted boundaries.

Healthy inter-religious
interdependent
creolizing polycultures
societies
nation-states
restorative justice systems
regenerative green peace networks,
never dishonor whole-sum gifts as tools for
and not weapons against

Trashed as ballast
for Great Straight White Father’s
unfortunately necessary wars,
originally sinful threats,
collateral human resource damage
of the also-rans
ungifted
unpowerful
disposable

Justified despite thereby losing environmental health
and losing active hope
for resiliently gifted human peace.

It is harder for an unstraight
unwhite
unmale nonbinary child
to emerge from genderphobia
feeling sensually gifted
neurosystemically cherished
wanted as is
than it is for a gifted matriarch
to sing and dance
feeling cherished
(and not marketed)
in transcendent eyes
of a God-needled gatekeeper.

A wounded gift
is different from some Thing
we try to buy
because multicultural integrity
is too high a climate health price
for Patriarchal
Corporate RedRight Capitalists
to stop hoarding Earth’s
Cooperative BountyCircled
Multiculturally Valued Gifts.

A sacred Blue/Green non-binary child gift

as possible

But, at least
no one will ever force RedRight you
to reconsider queers

and ecofeminist women
as if, just perhaps,
also sacred gifts

Or, at least not reconsider giftedness
of anyone you know was,
or is…

You know…
that OTHER wounded

In MotherEarth’s healthy

Reflections On Ancient Love

Long before sun light
was born from starkness

Long before Earth’s dawn
broiled unsteady hot star fire

Long before She filled
Her scarlet mind
with Yang’s high hills
time was this love

This ancient life
is reborn.

Long before our trees
greenly filled
Mother’s forests

Long before a wind
unsailed to sing
Earth’s wholesome songs

Long before She filled
Her turqjuoise mind
across Her seas,
time rewinds love

This ancient life
health born.

Long before Earth’s great chain
of being
forged ecocidal
egosystems

Long before a voice
could speak
divine creation

Long before She filled
Her bleeding heart
to grow a child
there is Earth’s love

This ancient life
wealth torn.

Long before a Truth
of love’s life
could be broken

Long before our wounds
were nailed upon a Mother Tree

Long before She laid Her body down
under His light
time spins this love

This ancient life
still born.

Wakeful each night
Greeting Earth’s dawning

Stubborn as trees
rebirthing burned
wounded hills

As we fill our healing minds
to hold Earth’s timeless time
This ancient love
Her aching life
flows stumbling on.

Note: This is a theological/ecological reflection on the lyrics to “This Ancient Love” words and music by Carolyn McDade, Copyright by Surtsey Publishing/ 1996, by Carolyn McDade.  These are the word choices I hear when speaking and singing Carolyn McDade’s beautiful composition. Not experienced, meant, intended as an improvement, update, or correction, but as a Both/And communion of sad sacred gratitude, in preparation for Earth Day, 2022.
