Transition Town Time

It was E. B. White
who famously lamented

Waking each morning
feeling prevented
from improving
his worldview experience

Or waking each morning
feeling joy
for improvements made
during views of Earth
sacred smack in Her
other wise dead head
inexperience

Or something
probably not so involved
but with the same
missing the potential
for

Waking each morning
committed to enjoy improving
my co-invested worldview
sacred health-humored
wealth of experience.

But not in a preachy
judgment way,
more of a cosmic beauty
sacred green holonic
kinda open wholeEarth systemic
sort of win/win play

More trauma-informed
by advocates
for green cooperative
deep learning non-violent communication
ecofeminist EarthTribe Day
and Transition Town Time
for restoring resilient EarthJustice.

Inside Climate Mess

Inside monotheistic ego aware
feeling
outside polytheistic co-empathic

These inside enlightened intuitions
outside verbal empowering cognitions
reflecting cooperative
in-between positive co-relationship
representing explicit wants
and implied needs

Win/Win co-relational regard
awareness
noticing all genetic roads lead back
back
back

To outside EarthTribe stabilization
inside
four-dimensional whole system fractals

Winters inside dormant outside

Springing active outside leading
feeding inside wealth of hunger
and healthy thirst

Summer ego/eco-climaxing systems
nurturing nutritional
identity individuation
full Yang cooperative maturation

Falling mortal outside leaves
failing freezing young root systems,
buried inside nuts
and seeds
of potential refertility

Autumn’s harvest integrity
reflecting
fomenting inside naked souls
feeding outside depleted soil

Positively regarding balance
tipping winter solstice promise
of ecosystemic past inside
and future outside
regenerations

Yet to EarthTribe thrive
despite genocidal
climate warnings

Inside ego aware
encultured feelings
outside co-empathic.

Learning Skills

Communication learning systems
like organic people
and plants
and living planets
could include education subsystems

Teaching/studying
employing nonviolent principles of communion
dialogue
co-reflection
co-investment

To optimize multicultural health
deepest
widest
wealthiest
most polyculturally inclusive
robust
thriving EarthTribe communion

To repair retributive justice win/lose
discommunicating corrupt systems
to restore global green/blue
regenerative peace

Multi-generational
holistic win/win learning systems
could include historic education
re-communicating
reconnecting secular and sacred
ego/eco-bilateral systems

Employing co-passionate principles
of trauma prevention
social crime prevention
and state autocracy prevention
and federated kleptocracy prevention

Unitarian inter-continental communication systems
redundantly responsibly regenerative

could include polymorphic learning

To Grow Peace

To faith communities
and fraternities,
brotherhoods
and sisterhoods
and sororities,
non-profits
pro peaceniks,
cooperative associations

Do not deceive yourselves.
Continuing on a monocultural
dissociated
navel-gazing path
of internal v external
navel v social gazing

Not inter-religious dialogue
about our shared peace
compassion opportunities,
political trust,
economic co-investment
is also not healthy,
not economically
or politically sustainable,
not even safe.

Monocultural silos
like food silos
and academic specialization silos
are not polyculturally
or polypathically
or polyphonically sung orchestrations,
playing preludes
for peaceful
prayerful resilience.

Isolationism
leads to militarism
as surely as inclusive gathering
and regathering
expands our economic
and political communionation

Global consciousness
of what we can, together
hope
and faith and good-humor
for a round encircling public health
and safety agenda.

Sacred silos
are iconic
of patriarchal erections
which are wonderful
but not sufficient
for resilient peaceful fertility,
regenerativity,
reconnection,

Polycultural
multicultural re-ligion
of Earth’s vastly diverse
peak and valley co-immersions.

Do not passively believe
that Sunday morning monocultural apartheid
does not contribute
to weekday despair
depression
dissociation
of polycultural paradise potential

Not utopian,
but an ongoing global
human adventure
in becoming together
healthier and safer
than any one community
nation
continent
ecosystem
bioregion
can become

Worshipping apart
from glorious Gaian
panentheistic integrity

Which cannot deceive ourselves
into remaining in claustrophobic
monocultural marching squares
rather than dancing
in polycultural spiraling circles
of good faith
and humor,
healthy
and safe,
more resiliently peaceful communications
than religiously supremacist
apartheid.

Rewarding Inclusion

I doubt it was a philosopher,
more likely an emperor,
but possibly both,
who first explored this sad relationship
between exclusion
and punishment,
colonialism
and repression.

I’ll bet it was a Taoist mother
afraid bad weather would smother
all hope of restoring future peace
who first engaged our glad elationship
between inclusion
and cooperative reward,
creolization
and multicultural
graceful impressions

This, our win/lose
zero-sum
retributive justice point

And yet also our win/win
nonzero-exponential
spiraling
revolving
restorative peace
counter-point

Balancing tipping points
toward cooperative polytheistic
polycultural possibilities,
secular and sacred,
for slow-growing resilient healthy seasons
and polyvagal
universal feelings
of neuro-sensory evolving
revolving safety.

Accidental exclusion
and intentional derision
of people with disabilities
win/lose dismay
disqualification
from LeftBrain
RightWing dominance

Together,
neglect and abuse
co-arise feelings of shame
self v other blame
punishing judgment
for being born
not LeftBrain
RightWing dominant enough
to earn our keep
in a commodified work force
neither enlightened playful
nor empowering peace-filled feelings

Industrially confined to slave
and prison
and asylum labor

PreIndustrially restoring wisdom
includes priority for inclusive
and incisive win/win intended
healing communication,
sustained healthy and safe
nurturing relationships,
growing multicultural
and ecopolitically rewarding trust.

Retributive justice
worships powers of royal affluence
while sacred restorying
of democratically inclusive peace
engages effluent co-powers

Of LeftBrain
RightHeart conserving
enlightened health
through resilient polycultural
anthro-wealth
of cooperative vocation

AND

For RightBrain
LeftHand liberating
feelings of safe empowering wealth
through resonant polycultural
polytheistic vacation,

Universal warm disregard
of pompous kings
and distinguished philosophers
disabled by LeftBrain
RightWing greedy punishment
exclusively disabling
anthro-integral
polyculturally resilient
tipping point balance

Rewarding inclusive RightBrain peace
restoring LeftBrain justice.

Raptor’s Eye

EarthCare Elders
repurposed our red brick industrial
BrownField

Including a rusted metal box
the size and shape of a giant’s coffin
orange and dingy brown
metallic flakes
floating toward sacred ground
along river’s sweeping bed.

Here lived a m other racoon
as had her Elder EarthMother
before her,
members of an indigenous EarthTribe
with river wisdom
long before our anthro-privileged
patriarchal/matriarchal political
and capital economic divisive time.

Because of Mother Racoon’s prior claim,
our Elders could not remove this blatant blight
from their waterfront views
when they salvaged the metal roof
beneath it
to install solar panels
and repurposed metal blades
for wind turbines
facing south
toward Long Island’s soundless waves
and marshy breezes,
rapture to the raptors.

So, instead of decapitation
the rusted tomb for racoon’s rest
was brushed,
redressed high up
above our healing river
and painted firey red
with a black raptor’s feathered eye
guarding west
across autumn’s sky
relentlessly watching
our rivered valley
as trees burn orange
and rich crimson
and mellow yellow.

Our sacred river eye
of gratitude for River Gaia’s flowing
watch back through transportive time.

She brought us rich soil,
luscious drinking water from the North,
seeds of grass,
raspberry and blackberry vines,
mountain laurel,
blueberry and cranberry bushes,
maple and oak and chestnut
and evergreens,

Edibles and ornamentals,
mushrooms and nuts,
berries and squash
and melons,
herbs and strawberries,
squirrels and frogs and b ears,
cats and wolves,
bats and eagles
flowing and following upstream sometimes

But, mostly down deep under,
sprouting magical thunder
awe and sacred wonder

All this
before our Raptor’s Eye
for those who see
what other’s hear
of EarthTribe’s mystery.

The Mural Project

Education Secretary Ellen,

Some of us
on the EarthCare Team
and also the Transport Solutions Committee
for special projects
are wondering
and, frankly, hoping

Your green STEAM students
and teachers
might research,
design,
and help residents paint
a historically accurate
AND polyculturally exquisite
series of murals

On our two-tiered
upper, more transcendently hopeful,
and lower, more historically faithful,
retaining walls

After our crumbling concrete parking pads
and steel-framed industrial artifacts
are hauled away
with respect and gratitude
for future repurposing

Our Transport Solutions
and EarthCare Elders
hope to use this transitional moment
to divert water runoff
to north and south bermed
and graceful descent
down toward our sacred RiverGaia,
rather than continuing to run
race
to disgrace our wet unhealthy basement

Thereby diverting soiled water stains
from historic runoff narrative face
retaining walled epic paintings,
perhaps combined with etching,
to tell a true and beautiful tale
about this sacred place
where we live
and work,
garden
and enjoy our EarthCare classroom
residence,
inside and outside

As did indigenously wise
Elders before us

And RiverGaia
learned Her future shape and flow
from ancient predative
cold
relentless icey white glaciers,

As will future natural construction
and deconstruction regenerators,
Thermal students
of green STEAM polyculturing Elders,
including co-invested us

Learning new Truth
and old Beauty Stories

Of how EarthCare givers
and health-care receivers
survived mistrust
to compassionately,
nonviolently
exquisitly thrive together

Designing for Healthy Beauty

PermaCulture DeSigners

of emergent properties
lies an exponentially wealthing

for Wealth and Beauty optimization
worth more self-governing capital-effectiveness

Spirited Therapeutic Systems

It might become too ironically
and iconically embareassing
to admit
I am taking a (s)hit
while exploring
my latest
and perhaps final
nutritional surmise
compressing peak climax
surprise

A well-capitalized
Systematic Theology
of EcoLogical Systems
is not such
an inviting much
of a moving title

Yet herein
we might energetically
not also massively invite “should”
raise up Yang’s enlightening strengths
without also evacuating Yin’s paradoxical
outgoing flow
of nutritional exchange
from what was brown
and healthy egocentric ownership
going down
into integral potential
for ecosystemic stewardship
as dull
as giving a crap
might not resound

Yang
could become LeftHemisphere’s name
too often verbally expressed
overly impressed with ecologically
abstractly decontextualized
secularized lack of curiosity
about patriarchally
well-capitalized
anal Trumpistic retention

AND
Yintegrity’s dipolar co-gravitating
unconditional regard
for self-therapeutic indigenous wisdom
often nonverbally nonviolently felt
too often ecowomanist suppressed
Yang obstructive repressed
economically and politically oppressed
polytheistic sacred sacramental
excremental integrity
of health care giving
wealth share receiving
nutritionally nurturing
fertile regenerative
co-assets.

Yang dominant
conditional curiosity
about what is safe
and also healthy
to cooperatively
and transparently
black
v brown
v suspiciously blond disregard
too often seeks inside enlightenment
from outside above

While Yin’s anally repressed integrity
wants to soil
and soul empower
by releasing egocentric resources from within
not perpetuating anthrosupremacist
agonizing constipation
pushing down against
royal ceramic throne imbalance

In a frightening gut-wrenching worldview
wherein positive does not quite logically
or ecologically
or analogically
or psychologically
or gastro-intestinally
or polyvagally neuro-systemically
equal not negative

Like 1 outgoing nutritional pole
and 0 outflowing nurturing hole
feel like Yang
unconditionally positive regarding
not not paradoxical Yintegral potential
self-health care
reproducing Earth soil’s
repurposing wealth-share potential
nonzero soul.

Yang integrity
hears
and bears down
with deep-seated dualdark brown
systemic enlightenment
biologically whole
holy open for fertile
Yintegrity.

I painfully need now
and want here
to communally co-hear
coherent co-empowerment
through eco-theological
Yang secular bodies don’t stink
where sacred Yintegral minds don’t blink

Against o-empathic
co-invested
co-binary
polypathic
co-passionate
nonviolent co-governing
polycultural fecal communion

Favoring fertile EarthSoul

mindbody happy

and wholesome ironic
ego-evacuation

Not quite so
Yangishly Trumpian
triumphalistic
narcissistic
anthrosupremacist
LeftHemisphere dominant
Straight White Male privileged
royal ceramic throne traumatic
chronic anal retention

Once finally again last
speaking out of my (gr)ass
about my own stressed-in
long-term stuck stuff
don’t stink
extensive pretension.
