Enchanting Mother Fish

To find enchanting integrity,
She transparently confronts her disenchantments
with present and past toxic flow,
disempowering absences of synergetic experience,
like rape and enslavement and aggressive commodification,
disharmonic songs
without time and space
for proper therapeutic dance,
desecrating liturgies of everyday.

Disenchantment
unveils what and where
and when and why
newborn
we belong within enchantment,
ecstatic and just plain ornery
ordinary static.

And yet,
we focus on this polarity
as if any one day and night
were all positive ecstasy
or negative static
while darker disenchanting days
of rain and pain
can bring ecotherapeutic memories
of sunny gains
through past regenerations
more than mere degeneration.

As EarthMothers often say
among our own schooling selves
and to our spawning young:

Bad days and nights,
We will know these,
climate health and pathology,
as we also hope for delights.

Choose battles,
Pick poisons,
don’t gulp them all.
Some are more disenchanting nights
with longer darker terms,
more seductively yet reductively
unveiling memory’s disenchanting dust
through past enchantments.

Unorthodox disenchanting rust
unveils potential
for integrity’s more enchanting return
to grace of well-sung cooperative place
and beauty’s eternally relentless face,
pace,
absence of disenchanting disgrace.

Disenchantment with personal
and familial
and community
and state
and school
and religious
and national
and global disabilities
on our worst chaotic dismal days
haunting through our relentlessly stuck nightmares
unveil potential therapeutic integrity
as enchanting special abilities
for multiculturing therapeutic wealth
of cooperatively-held health
through timeless solidarity
of Oceanic Ownership mentality.

As other people’s creation stories,
then other species’ narratives
turn from mere entertaining escapes
from our daily addiction
to a disenchanting society
of Ego’s inside epic endless tale,
and turn toward surprising eco-invitations
to see and hear mutually owned integrity of grace
and mendacity playing with disgrace,

Disenchantment,
motivating escape,
slowly unveils cooperative enchanting potentials
for growing ZeroZone mutual WinWin integrity,
inside out toward light’s everyday enchantment
with EgoHere greets EcoNow,

Integrity’s residential flow
enchantingly co-present

As transparently enchanting
water streams
within and without
a dancing mother fish.

A River Flows Through

A river flows through this fold of life,
sometimes too turbulent,
occasionally too still
even for older established streams
with sluggish circulation currency
nearly to our shore of oceanic
sea’s streaming into one surfing surface
tidal stream,
our great river of rivers
flowing and surfing out and up
and back and forth
surging and slugging
stressing and struggling
with our undertow
need to flow
back home again,
to when this river’s story began
to flow through this unfolding life.
