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.

Roots of Worship

My roots of Creator worship
are fed and watered
by Creation appreciation
and curiosity

Whether this might also be true
and sometimes disappointingly false
for you

A resonantly sacred
sometimes prophetic
heart

With a resilient
health developing
ecosystemic mind

For whom my tricky part,
or one of many
as I recall…

Furtive sidewind glances
to my youthful left

Where he sat
in his magnificent
thick stacked darkness,

My closet worship thing
is impossible to come out
with perfect timing
with someone I am powerfully,
intoxicatingly, enraptured by
with
within
and preferably not without

Yet have no hope or intention
of ever being naked
or even transparent,
and certainly not vulnerable,
within his sight and hearing.

If said out loud,
then unveiled too soon
to not cause unwanted predative
seductive concerns.

If not said too soon
then inevitably disclosed too late
to retain resonant
and resilient trust

No hidden agendas,
no closet colonizing cases,
no aging platonic relationships
continuing to work
and play better
in just right silence
of unseen
unheard
unfelt
untouched emotions
without attaching motions

Back through roots of Creator worship
fed and watered
by Creation appreciation
and thick stacked curiosity.

If I Were S/He

If I were S/He
I would look downstream
for a power so high
this mythic enlightenment feels sacredly deep
and widely therapeutic
mystical in feeling,
practical in application.

If I were She
I would declare a new Wisdom:
National superpowers corrupt
toward fundamentally polarizing RightWing dominance
Just as global enlightenment heals
toward evangelical gospel GreenQueen
MotherEarth empowerment.

If I were S/he
I would break ballistics
into cooperatively-owned shovels
shares in bioregional GreenPeace
non-violent warriors inviting
never demanding
health is wealth co-passions

Planting peace with shade trees
and berry bushes,
pollinators
grasses
enriching sandy soils
supporting water
then remediated living waters
rivers
flowing toward deep
wide surfing seas

Seasons and daughters
eco-governing five-star reasons
to both vacation
and vocation
in cooperative integrity.

If I were S/He
I would breathe out Holy Spirits
and breathe back in sacred Father’s SunLIght

Powers of bicameral
contextual
co-empathic
ego/eco
secular/sacred Great Green/Blue CoPassions

For feminist economics
supporting healthy MotherEarth
green democratic biosystems
deeply healthy and widely wealthy ecosystems,
theologically SheCoLogical.

If I were She
I would first change all First Amendment
Rights to fight
with free but misinforming speech
and armed/threatening militarized
monetized
corporate-supported assembly;
To CoResponsibly Right to non-violent
eco-politically accountable speech
and disarming co-empathic Invocations,
sacred cooperative economic visions
of EarthTribe health care planning

Enlightening copowers
defending multicultural health
and global LivingCreatures,
BioSystemic Creation,
EarthClimate Safety.

Then our grateful Republicans,
now having learned how to listen
more conservationally Win/Win Green
and healthy red-blooded matriarchal
Don’t Mess With Mama!
and Her long-term health care plans
to move Her great grandkids
onto Her green platform,
cooperatively owned plantation,

clean pure deep river-front
with wide panoramic mountain view
Sacred Habitat

Peculiarly South-faced
filled with past resilient regenerative light
of Holy ExtendedFamily Ghosts
of slaves
and morally unfree to love
replacing fear and anger,
hate
and drunken self-loathing.

If I were S/He
I would grab on to Restoring Climate Justice
with all our best non-violent, most joyful and liturgical,
not dirgical, communication
letting go of Retributive
FearPrivileged Punishments

Yielding downstream wide
and upstream deep co-empathically enlightening
and cooperatively empowering
Patriarchal CoPassions
with Matriarchal S/He
bicameral co-prominence

Left out of RightWing capital acquiring
zealous corporate plans
to vote against HealthyGreen ecotherapeutic climates
of feeling powerful liberating health

Healthy Change ReFormations

I suppose a healthy Taoist
is a wealthy Change artist,
designer
researcher,
mediator,
facilitator,
mentor,
resilient liver
more than a despondent dier.

Taoism,
like Zeroism,
and Universal Unitarianism,
is a multicultural path
toward restoring,
and resiliently retaining,
MotherEarth’s natural
AND spiritual
empowerment

Still left-hemisphere deductively dominating verbal voices
in warm conversation with
EarthTribe’s blue/green sacred feelings
organically ecofeminist
holistically synergetic,
interdependently integral
economic and political
Yang/Yintegrity co-invested,

Which,
in a gay white alliance
with BlackFamily Lives Matter husbands,
requires cooperative talent for noticing,
and correcting unenlightened privilege,
with a warm soft-felt sense of humor,
“You don’t act right half the time.”

Inviting empowering response,
“But, look what a great transformational job you’ve done
with my more enlightened half.”

Better co-invested in polyculturally correct
GoldenRule outcomes,
win-win sealed and certified
economically sacred long-term resilience
ecologically secular short- through long-term
co-invested,
infested with delight
in sharing joyful journeys

In green secular empowerment
standing steely mountainous strong–
left-hemisphere patriarchal–
and yet also blue sacred enlightenment

Tender mercies of graced Beauty
qualitatively emerging
evolving

involving democratically expanding health
wealth nonzeroistic merging

Whole QueenGaia Spirits

Left-hemisphere prominence
flowing bilaterally in
and out Right-bihemispheric dipolar
co-arising integrity of here

Beauty con-science

Integral re-connection

InBetween Holy Trinities

Long-term EarthPeace compassion
co-present ego inside LeftVoiced
actively mediating sufficient

Equitably democratic
healthy economic

Quite a bit less patriarchally conflicted
about short personal lifetime
v long-term EarthClimate
multigenerational
multicultural healthcare commitments

In solidarity with EgoCentered
Resilient Family
Resonant Community
Holy Communions,
steeped in multicultural blue/green
integrity

Empowering organic gardens,
enlightening ecofeminist farmers
cooperative

nonhistoric–
merely everyday win/win
DNA rethinkers

Sufficiently endowed
with indigenously preverbal
naturally enspirited Wisdom
for health

Democratically empowering healthy Taoists
enlightening wealthy Change artists,

mentors more than degenerative
nonviolent noncommunicators

On our best days
also
resiliently dynamic livers
seeking win/win multicultural change
in wealthy resonant climates breathing out

Earth Momma Blues

Momma
don’t help me
grow up to love CowBoys,

The ones
who can buy you
or sell you at will,
or tell you
they don’t care
whether healthy or ill,

The ones who know good ole’ boys
were born
unredeemable pills

Smoking up weeds
or stoking up stills,

Klanish threats
to the cattle
without sufficient
commitment
to armed forcing kill will.

Momma don’t help me
grow up to hate CowBoys,

Grown tired of their noise
their boys will be boys
armed violating toys
dark win/lose ploys
most trust in just goys
red true white blue
patriotic employs

Momma
don’t buy me
another white cowboy,
they just don’t work out
they leave with a pout
I just wanna shout,
What’s it all about
when your Alpha’s a cowboy?

Who has no clue
what he’s to do,
which side to chew
in red,
white,
and true blue
blues.

Power to Embrace Difference

Solitude
not impatiently exhausted
remains open to nonviolent solidarity
through multiculturing Earth communication,
within reflective self
and without
in active dialogue with nature
spirited Other remuneration.

As yang-strong
solid regenerative nature
engages and co-invests in more
and better compassionate humane
divine experience

As objective secular outcomes
blend yintegrity within
without subjective secularizing intent

To optimize green ego-health
and blue eco-sacred
co-invested safety;
An EarthCommuniy of communities
practicing social-economic Solitude
can be regenerative,
an omni-potent
poly-pathic
non-egotistic
eco-feminist
healthy and safe place

Strong Yang-power mounted
within Yintegrative well alliterative rivers
shivers
quivers
slivers
through bilaterally flowing ZeroZones

Full of timeless NonZero
times undefinable potential,
future wealth
planted in solidarity
of now unfolding
prehistoric
indigenous green/blue EarthWombs
of and for
reweaving memories.

Active solidarity
within eco-responsive solitude,
full and empty
impersonal when co-impassioned felt
and needed safe wealth
is health
proper communication seasons

Inexhaustibly solitary
nonviolent political community
of co-investing economic green communions,
regenerating solidarity
re-membering compassionate nonhistoric nurturing experiences,
polypathically rational outcomes

Objective

eco-wealth intent

Of communal solitary souls
full and ego empty
NonZero Zoned reflective

This Is EarthJust Us

This is Us,
my waist too big,
his check too small,
she’s not the fairest
of Them all,

We must confess,
This is Ugly,
we are a mess,
the Earth’s ungrounded
greatest pest,

But, This is Us,
our only home
to share it well
before its gone,
extracted
refracted
denuded
and fracted,
deluded
and impacted,
polluted
and red Raped… …

Sacred
health neglected
and wealth abused,
THIS IS US!
We’re all we have
and are,

All we remember
and imagine,
reimagine
our compassion
for Earth’s great final passion;
This is Us

Filled with puss,
make it
or bust,
some say
“dust from dust,”
our parts
too often rust,
we smell
of patriarchal must,
need everything
right now or bust,
This is Us… …

Not unlovely Them;
what will we do
when established trump
doesn’t rule
our wild and free imaginations
of how I can be,
live true to
my own flawed beauty,
re-connecting
re-ligioning
re-membering
through all our neglected wild cards,
This EarthTribe is Us

We’ve each made god
in our best imagination
of how united nations
remember recreations
of great and wealthy destinations
from home regeneration
for health to safely hold
future generations
singing this our great examination
of how we are
in this Great Green Transitionalization,
This is Us

When we
most brilliantly choose
to see
This Us is Earth
regiving birth
forgiving death,
our wide democratic
and deepest
existential mess,
This is Us.

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.

Compassion’s Healthy Allies

How might capitalism
and egocentric competitive allies
of patriarchalism
racism
sexism
monoculturalism
totalitarianism
binary double-standardism
anthropocentrism

remind us of which competitive communication weapons
develop further violently aggressive apartheid?

And which regenerate gratitude
for cooperative
co-passionate communication tools,
both verbal and non-verbal,
for growing multiculturally resilient social capital?

contextual rightbrain intuitively felt
both/and nuanced
dipolar co-arising left/right
bicameral intelligence.

Which of your green ecofeminist allies
share your active curiosity
and passion for issues
of healthy democratic empowering Trust?

universal,
so not divided or divisive,
unitarian

unable to passively accept
aborting tolerance,
or to explicitly intend
to collaborate with evil,

instead to comply
with win/win cooperative living systems
resiliently accommodating long-term health concerns
anticipated for our next seven regenerations
of social capital wealth.

Too often we become fascinated
with persuading our non-allies
how not only different
but more right we have become
in our old established
entrenched rightwing
v leftwing ways

perhaps because we cannot remember,
when ego’s healthy survival
feels at heartless stake,

multiculturally depolarizing conversations
invite both/and responsiveness
more than either/or debate.

Critically nuanced thinking/feeling dialogue,
essential to non-violent communication resonance,
speaks of chosen people
only after deeply listening
for muted voices of non-privileged
disenfranchised species
without competitive capitalist privilege
derived from patriarchally historical
leftbrain dominant verbal minds

still actively curious
about rightbrain’s integral tolerance
for being of underestimated value
becoming non-violent communicators
shunning retributive, punishing judgments

preferring to celebrate
with joyous win/win resistance
embracing compassion’s great
healthy nonscorched Earth resilience

restoring green empowered peace
serenely blue surfing
seasoned light
of EarthMatriotic
revolutionary
revolving
evolving healthy resilient justice.
