Jerry and his Big Bad Wolf

Jerry had a big bad wolf
Who followed him to Sunday school,
Heaven school,
BrightLight toxic school,

Jerry had a big bad wolf
whose hair was black as coal,
black as death,
black as stole
his power soul,

Jerry had a big bad wolf
which was against the rule,
golden
non-violet
not black and blue
in nonSunday secular school
born against God’s imaged
sacred tool,

Black through white
transparent in green goddess light
non-violet she-wolf black and bright
gratitude for godly thrival days
and wild goddess
wolf-bred
sacred nights,

Passions unscared
unscarred
without cosmic frights
restoring green peace
and non-violent just delights.

Risking Love

I knew I was getting old
when I no longer always got up
from the floor
on my first try.

I remember I am old
because I no longer assume
I will always get up
off my contemplative couch
on my first try.

To choose life
on the first through last try
may be as simple
and as complex
as to not choose death,

To choose to trust enough to take
one more,
perhaps final,
inhale.

To choose life
also includes risking love,
another gasp toward compassion,
even a shaky clasp on forgiveness,
indigenously wise mercy,
relentless curiosity,
ancient hope,

However fragile
wounded
insufficient for more grand standing
than one more bold inhale
of Earth’s organic sufficiency
simplicity
solidarity.

It feels as wrong
to define my mourning self
by my failures to love us
on my worst arising days

I feel aright
to creatively redefine our meaning
with unearned compassions for riding along
on Earth’s most grace-filled
timeless
co-arising
SabbathPlace,

My daily liturgical experience
rises and lies
each day and night
recycling in-between
sufficiency of one last grateful inhale
predicting one more first graceful gift
exhaled

Exhilarating
exciting
exiting and entering
small sufficiencies
empowering love’s enlightening
curious co-arising wealth
of loving healthy passions.

She Speaks in Circling Lengths

He said,

Your faith community’s secularizing problem
is too much dogmatically intolerant rigidity.
You reek of green political correctness.

She replied, indefinitely concluding,

You are undoubtedly right,
our sacred opportunity
too slowly grows win/win principles
of nature/spirit indigenous integrity

We speak of blue empowerment
through green cooperative enlightenment,

Yet shun the rightwing dominant
red patriarchs
we only find useful
in regenerative beds

For flowers
and vegetables,
ornamentals
and edibles,
polyculturally designed
to follow multicultural polypaths
to notice transubstantiating co-relationships
necessarily precede healthy
rebirth wealth

Not only rising and falling daily
weekly
monthly
seasonal life

But also noticing cycles
and spirals
daily circles of rising to enlightenment
from the same dream bed
where we, in previous dark of nightfall,
fell unfree freely into disempowering
ecosytemic ego’s leftbrain dominant
verbalizing either/or thoughts
and categorical labels
prickly restricting
dark box constricting
deducting power
reducing light
from free win/win green cooperative,
win/lose red competitive,
integrity of full-circle thought
feelings

Looking forward
as dawn greets greying skies
this day
and night
yet another full and emptying circle
re-imagining our win/lose dogmatic indoctrinations
into win/win indigenously organic freedoms
of integrity’s vast warm green
cooperatively blue
recycling potential

To smell and taste
of refreshing cooperative
healthy political empowerment
through economically co-invested
green indigenously new/old
transubstantiating communion circles
of health/wealth thriving
enlightenment.

Somewhere Sometime Somehow

Most of life plays out somewhere
somehow
sometime
in-between resplendent deification of MotherEarth
and rabid defiance of EarthMother
wisdom

Is a peculiarly Republican challenge,
confusing unchanging
uniform
divinely dogmatically inspired
Tradition

As if such Tradition were against
healing
unitarian economic political flow
of Earth-conserving sacred grace
slow-growing
co-invested capital resources.

In this confusion,
sometimes
somehow
somewhere
lies an undemocratic patriarchal challenge
lacking divinely inspired liberal love commitment
to multicultural Creation health values

Such as active compassion,
faithful kindness,
hope-filled planetary organic co-investments
in green empowerment

Full-spectral
ongoing long-term health systems
in-between fractal/seasonal transition boundaries
extending humane/divine octaves filling-in
multicoloring metaphors

For health wealthy
enlightening regenerative structures
systems
cycles
spirals of GreenPeace Revolution

Neither defying past sins
of all AnthroTribe omissions
to care for EarthMother
indigenous wisdom

Nor deifying future wins
of HeavenFather co-commissions
co-investments
co-empathic somehow
somewhere
sometime in-between revolutions,

Great Green transitions
transubstantiations
naturally spirited traditions.

Ego’s Healing Witness

Sympathy,
at its positive
liberal Blue best,
begets
and yet regrets
mere tolerance of win/lose aggressive Others
not so entirely dissociated
from all-inclusive retributive justice

Social monoculturing
patriarchal systems
capable, on our best days,
of impatiently tolerating alien
aggressive,
terrorizing,
bullying,
militantly viral transgressing
every possible win/win nuance
of Golden MultiCultural Rules

In a sojourner
immigrant/emigrating
hospitality
anciently indigenous wisdom
kind of in/exformative TaoWay

In a too-often witnessed story
not significantly my own experience
to vulnerably
transparently share
integrity’s EarthJustice potential.

Empathy,
by win/win superior contrast,
begets acceptance of others
who become everyday Allies
at least potentially
on our pro-active BlueSky EarthDaze
best healthy
conservational
Green New Deal
days

Of actively cooperative Esteem,
empowering bilateral
multilateral Love,
Active Compassion,
CoEmpathetic enlightening communication

EarthTribally non-violent
revolutionary integrity
octaved developmental change
circles of nonviolent communication

Verbal and non-verbally witnessed
begetting integrity with EcoOthers
now known as TrueLeft deductive
AND BeautyRight inductive

Ego/Eco systemic
extending EarthTribe experiential family
at least potentially co-empathic
on our healthy wealthiest climate
EarthDays

Featuring egalitarian sympathy
as a developmental path
toward interdependent empathy
as a cooperative journey
into co-invested integrity

Earth health,
peace,
restoring justice’s
climatic green wealth potential
to avoid violently cruel
unusual retributive social
economic
political punishing
criminalizing
enslaving
bloody red non-communionation.

RockAway Baby

Rock away baby
in your tree top,
When Earth winds blow
our cradle can’t stop

And all Her Queen’s horses
and all old bald white men
can’t put Her regathered
together again.

Her wounds raise our stories
of struggle and sin,
our strengths are new songs
about old wounds gone wrong.

Ironic Revolving History

Interesting
is it not?

Not so GrandChildren of immigrants from Europe,
seeking religious freedom
and economic advantage
and almost certainly of self-examined HAVE-NOT status,

Because, if not of personally
and economically
persecuted persuasion
and unenlightened neglect
and politically disempowering abuse.
then why would these wise GrandElders
have immigrated
toward this more cooperatively enlightened health
and empowering democratic safety
promised MotherLand?

Interesting that some of their NotSoGrandChildren
are now feeling Elitely entitled
to StraightWhiteMale libertarian privilege,
are evangelically entitled,
chosen children and then adults
for wild red rapture DeathCulture fantasies,

Dark conspiracy theories
to explain chronic HAVE-Not economic
or political
or even right-mind personal status

Supporting ego redemptive nihilistic insurrections,
ecofeminist rape,
and pillage,
and strange black guerrila mob lynching theater
defensively justified anthro-supremacist extraction rights
without exploiting left elitist government officials
snobbishly intellectual
know-nothing betrayers
of those left neglects,
leaving under-privileged behind
without academic elitist learning

Not to trust
green clerical ecofeminists
storming mainstream privileged liberals

In love,
preaching EarthDay promises
of win/win co-redemption,
restoring divine natural EarthJustice,
healing the win/lose sick
and tired
and already retired,
and low self-esteemed,
wounded and broken

Without LeftBrain relevant
interdependent natural compassion creation stories,
recreation development narratives
severed from RightBrain spiritually interdependent
sensory impassioned memories

Of RightWing judging wounds,
steeped in red-blooded American StraighWhiteMale
blaming and shaming,
revengefully right reactionary
against intolerable and ungrateful GrandChildren
too multiculturally alien

Immigrants,
underemployed spiritual pilgrims
seeking new EarthVisions

ReVisions of Old Testament hospitality
GoldenRules of polycultural religious light
of freedom,
economic cooperative powers
of resilient ego-health
and EarthDay safety

Win/Win cooperative Paradise,
green democratic delivery of Heaven
away from self-proclaimed HAVE-NOT Hell
monoculturing
Not So Grandchildren daily ZeroSum lack

Of liberally civil love,
civic status,
multiculturally re-connecting,
religioning NonZero Souls
found interesting,
are we white systemic privileged not?

NotSo GrandChildren of poor and tired immigrants
from Europe,
too often weak and broken and tired,
suffering losers and sometimes
too heterodox sinners,
seeking multicultural religious freedom
and more cooperative economic advantage
and almost certainly hoping for integral green compassion
in ego-as-ecoOther re-examined
HAVE-NOT sufficient green cooperative
healthy democratic
win/win bicamerally empowering
enlightening interdependent status,

Because, if not interesting,
then continue spinning
win/lose patriarchal
LeftBrain dominant history
instead of win/win matriarchal
co-enlightening mystery
of green ecofeminist win/win powers.

UnShelved EarthPassions

If I were to step into
and onto
and around
and through,
in and out of WholeEarth
as one ecosystemic
interdependent
unitarian
integral
holistic
holy nature-spirited ZeroZone

Of ego-sheltering identity,
embodiment,
multiculturally emergent incarnation,
polycultural individuation process,

For just one timeless polypathic moment,
I might hear
and feel RightWing religiously-held bad faith,
envy,
chronic win/lose patriarchal anxiety,
straight white male privileged anger,
ego-systemic xenophobic fear

As a ZeroZone therapeutic problem
neglecting win/win polypathic,
polycultural virtues

Of also experiencing LeftWing scientifically-held good faith,
appreciation,
critical joy climaxing win/win matriarchal anticipation,
non-binary multicultural feminist democratic compassion,
ecosystemically polytheistic,
polypathic,
polyphonic,
polyvagal neurological win/win,

Unsheltered,
transparent,
vulnerable,
eternally curious
compassionate Fruits of EarthSpirit communication,

Internally ego-centered
when also timelessly EarthImpassioned

In our personal
and interpersonal
and transpersonal experiential learning ways,

RightWing,
LeftBrain,
Either/Or,
fundamental capitalistic deductive Win/Lose
sometimes overpoweringly violent Red Dominance

Is also premature green
Left/Right bicameral,
double-binary,
balancing
ecopolitical win/win promise
through compassionate Earth-systemic communication

Of curiously courageous Light/Power,
Heaven/Earth,
Scientific/Religious,
ego/eco-revolutionary win/win passions
unsheltered

CoEnlightening
Ego/Eco-empowering
if we were to step in and out
of WholeEarth ecosystemic
integral nature-1/spirit-0 Zone
of ego/eco-cooperatively unsheltered identity,
polypathic co-investment process

Interdependently held
for just one timeless eco-political moment,

We might hear and speak,
experience and know
left and right cooperative,
deductive thought and inductively felt bicameral
health and safety,
compassionate
EarthPeace communication.

Mercy’s UnBlind Justice

I suspect mercy may be more resiliently empowering
for optimizing multicultural health
as compared to uniform law
and ordered, cookie-cutter, justice
unresponsive to ubiquitous mitigating circumstances
of unique spaces
and relentlessly changing times.

Mercy recognizes society’s environmental
historical contributions to loss,
to absence of equitable justice
more aware of each individual perpetrator’s responsibility
to society
to family,
to local community

Society’s justice,
without nurturing
restorative mercy,
speaks decontextualized
un-nuanced authority of capital-measured economic systems
including reasonable and fair expectations
of retributive law,
imprisoning neglect
and sometimes violently punishing order.

I wonder if both justice and mercy
improve therapeutic co-arising potency
restoring merciful justice
AND
revising metaphysically just
equitable
reuniting mercy,
co-redemptively resolving
what Earth has positively conjoined
in thoughtful truth
and felt beauty

Breathing,
re-animating,
enspiriting
inspiring nature’s in and out climates
of seasonal development,
undevelopment,
redevelopment,
anti-development,
pro-development,
fractal phases of leftbrain space
mercifully greeting,
halfway meeting,
bilateral rightbrain TaoTime

With merciful multicultural anticipation,
so less competitive room
for monoculturing white justice anxiety.

Grand Old Trump Party

President Trump,
shortly after his singularly smelly election,
declared emphatic comparisons with Elder Republican
Abraham Lincoln.

Early on,
he described Lincoln as his kindred political soul,
admired mentor,
and the former President he was destined to most resemble
in spirit and success;

Presumably not including assassination
causing an abrupt end to his second term in office,
won by a landslide–
even if mainly because the ancestors of many Trump loyalists
were not in a northern political position to vote that year.

More recently,
President Trump,
not one to drop names of people who don’t actually exist
outside his own narcissistic imagination,
relayed the uninvited twitter message,
People tell him,
apparently hoping for the privacy of anonymity,
that he is already the greatest Republican President
in US history,
including Abraham Lincoln,

Who would be so supportive of Trumpian caging of children,
supportive of DT’s mockery
of women,
of people with disabilities,
of those homeless,
of people poor,
criminalized
traumatized by violence…
The list goes on in a remarkably non-Lincolnesque
non-spiritual
unChristian
snarky kind of way.

I imagine the President has heard Lincoln’s observation about trust
so necessary for even a quasi-healthy democracy,

“You can fool all the people
some of the time,
and some of the people
all the time,
but you can’t fool all the people
all the time.”

President Trump isn’t known for being a reader
outside consuming twitter posts
and Fox non-news banners,
but it seems he might have heard,
possibly read,
this Lincoln proverb as a challenge,
or just went with optimizing the promise that he could fool some people
all the time–
good enough for government work.

President Trump made it clear,
even before his Inauguration Day,
that only those people who could appreciate the splendorous beauty
of his naked narcissistic garments and greed would:

  1. get to heaven,
  2. become TrumpMedia empowered
    to hate multiculturally resilient democratic constitutions
    and healthy co-governance systems.

Speaking of aphorisms,
this night of January 6th,
my ecosystemic soul bows to the post-full moonlight
remembering,
“It is always darkest just before dawn.”

I grab onto this hope,
but then realize
Whoever knows this to be true from experience
could only speak this with reassurance
after the first hint of emergent light to the East,
source of sacred light
and EarthlyPower.

Is this as dark as fragile democracy
and patriotic civility must fail
this self-governing experiment?

I can’t quite yet see an Eastern sky of fading stars
although I would love to be vision corrected,
perfected to see light and power
in this climatic polarized time
of win/lose ecopolitical rabidity,
eating our children’s future,
wasting their water
and formerly fertile soil,
and decimating shading fruitful trees.

I can imagine a darker hour.

I can imagine my children
speaking with their grandchildren
about now vanquished land and water mammals,
the improbable kangaroo
and porcupine
and skunk

About former forests of mature trees,
huge plants
strong rooted
and reaching up
and out
much taller than the tallest remaining human;
now aging memories of neighbors lost forever.

Earth’s elder democratic,
healthy,
polycultural,
living biosystems might well survive
our species,

The only one that appears motivated to elect leaders
invested in fooling all the people
all the time,
of ignoring the rights and pleasures,
truths and beauty
of all “lesser” species
and “weaker” people,
now reduced to natural commodities
throughout Earth’s darkest hours.
