Rev. MLK ReSync

“power without love is
reckless
and abusive,
and love without power is
sentimental
and anemic.
Power at its best is
love implementing the demands
of justice,
and justice at its best is
power
correcting everything that stands
against love.”

Win/Lose power
without win/win love is
lose/lose reckless
and abusive,

And win/win love
without win/win power is
sentimental
and anemic.

Power
at our best is
love cooperatively implementing
win/win healing justice,

And EarthJustice
at our healthiest
and best is
power
win/win correcting everything
that stands win/lose against
multiculturing love.

Parsing Partisanship

Gay Rights are not Civil Rights
grabs my Yahoo facetime
fast-paced news rhyme

Civil Rights are not just Gay Rights
on my administrative time
bounces back a Left WhiteHouse reprise
that Civil Rights
include Gay Rights
as a necessary subset,
but not multiculturally sufficient anthem
to cooperative network define
a green ecosystemally co-passionate refinement

Sacredly inspired divine,
panentheistically supported,
indigenously wise
green party spirited natural civil rights

Are not
uncivil capitalist
straight Anglo Corporate Rights
are not particularly humane Civil Rights

Grabs my bilateral
dipolar-coarising attention
consciousness
awareness
green woke upness
ecofeminist positive
also means healthy and safe awakeness

“Gay Rights”
by your definition
on my Right,

Are those also “Women’s Rights”?

And/or “Lesbian Civil Rights”?

What about “Transgender Rights”?
if you are a tadpole
or a flower,

Would that be OK for you?

What about “Anal Intercourse Rights?”
for mammals?

Then there’s the ever popular
“Abortion Rights”
for trees
dropping her nutty egg seeds
before their time
in times of drought
and fire
and sensual deprivation;
lack of environmental support.

Could “Civil Rights”
include “Bisexual Rights”?

Would these be “Up-To-Half-Homosexual Heterosexual Rights”?

Or, more simply,
less schizophrenically
less blatantly half secular/half sacred
less curiously half wiki-spiritual/half natural

Not quite so mentally unhealthy
bipolar RightWing dominant
parsing
and non-parsing
rumination
ruination
of what might have been
bicameral “Healthy Democracy Rights”

Which are not UnCivil Rights
of AnthroSupremacists
to commit ecocide

While LeftWing
RightBrain repressives
wonder why their RightWing God’s
LeftBrain dominant monotheistic
monoculturalism
defines conservatism only negatively,
uncreatively,
degeneratively,
dissociatively,
dissonantly,

As economically
and politically needed
to reassure us
LeftBrain
Straight AngloCorporate worldview
on restoring EarthRights to Basic Climate Thrival
really must lack Win/Win green
emotive
contextual civil rights intelligence
of the average
woke up synergetic ecofeminist.

Regardless of species
doing their basic sensing
and complex feeling
personal
and global
and tribal
and familial
and multigenerational
and polycultural
and panentheistic
and systemically integral
sacred health care
organic civil rights homework

Which is what I was supposed to be doing
when
Gay Rights are not Civil Rights
grabs my Yahoo facetime
fast-paced news rhyme
and it’s not yet dawning
Sabbath spacetime.

Sunday morning nap time
is not uncivil screen time
for writing not really news rhymes.

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.

Healthy Compassion Parties

I am deeply concerned,
worried,
anxious
that We The Humane Healthy People
need to calmly
and firmly say:

The Republican NATIONAL Party
no longer supports:
Public Health,
Mental/Spiritual Health,
Planetary Climate Health,
Cognitive/Emotive Integrity
Resilient Economic Wealth
Healthy Democracy.

A therapeutic
redemptive revival
of a trusted
true
and patriotic
Grand Old MultiCultural Party
requires pruning back through historic
toxicity
to the Eisenhower administration
channeling the Lincolnesque longing
for a more civil discourse
between those who are enslaved,
those who feel economically
and politically oppressed,
between loyal adversaries
sure of a United State of commitment
to public wellbeing,
green environmental and economic prosperity,
empowering profoundly co-empathic public health
and conservational safety.

My own Michigan
white privileged
homophobic
evangelical ChosenPeople
monotheistic father
never would have voted for a Hillary Clinton,

And he never would have voted for a Donald Trump
because of Anti-Christian vainglorious pride
in having no experience,
including veteran experience,
defending humane health
and sacred social safety.

The RNC owes We
The MultiCultural Democratic People
an apology
and reparations,

A therapeutic
bipartisan peace plan
for national resilience,
for global green health,
and for ecological-economic safety,
sanity,
EarthResonant security.

Relationships I Hope For

I need clear blue rivers of life
to not always flow away from me,
in some direction
I can’t
or won’t
go right now.

I need green commitments to home
to feel mutually nurturing,
sheltering,
organic,
peaceful,
cooperatively engaging
in nonviolent communion,
co-passionate integrity
of sacred emergent space.

I need the sky
to not always feel grey,
dampening my curious natural spirits.
Instead,
I want to always imagine,
as needed,
as invited,
as if sun summoned,
a radiant blue sky
singing reflections
of invisible spinning stars
on the other
lighter side
of deepest icy winter’s
dense
dull
dark cloud bank
of settled in oppression.

I need rich black soil
to support my feet,
my nose,
my stomach,
green trees,
brightly colored plants
and amazing animated animals
giving back robust excretions,
reparations for past extractions,
borrowed co-investments
infesting EarthTribal
creolizing rich brown humus.

I need my rain-bowed neighbors
to notice
applaud
cheer
celebrate
when two elegantly athletic white swans
sensationally fly upstream
to hang out at our downtown harbor
where we eat
and drink,
rest
and float,
dream
and gloat,
on land
and sandy water,
at least side by side,
if not honking happy
swimming together.

Dervish EarthDance

I sometimes reconsider
all our politicians
and economists,

Not as party-line teachers,
or even dogmatic preachers,
instead of future forecasting,
co-infesting deep past
and present listening
with compassioning
co-empathic
therapeutic intent
to laugh and sing.

Who is not
at least a private health care politician
seeking to empower our constituencies
and not to disempower?

What responsible adult
is not at least a personal wealth economist?
Praying for divine enlightenment
and not so much
inhumane
depressing endarkenment?

Who has been
cause-effect
effectively recausing
counter-culturally
exposed to Buddhist master laughter?
Meditation in silly groups
feeling nearly giddy
with short-term relief
from mountainous depression
valleys of despair

Surprised,
perhaps dismayed,
that such a fake
pretending dervish exercise
might portend more
than our species’ economic
political
anti-ecological demise.

I further wonder
if all Earth’s depressed
suppressed
oppressed
repressed muted muses

Silenced
stunned
sunk by political sadness
dispiriting badness
economic madness
of Earth’s Great Transitional Pandemic

Might discipline our lonely
lethargic
neglected bodies
to dance
until our minds remember how to sing
and ring
ping and ding
a liturgy of sacred laughter things
together regathering

For re-empowering compassioned muses
enlightening sacred ecstatic economists,
co-investing companies and choirs
of moving
mindful
musicality,
harmony,
synergy,
win/win cooperative energy,
sufficient for eco-politically heart-felt
lung-filled integrity

To more reflectively reconsider
all our singing polities
and EarthDance economies
sanctifying dervish universities.

Don’t Shut Me Out

Please don’t be mean to me
Don’t shut me out.

Please be kind to me
Don’t blame me
for all this pain about

Please give me a chance
to dance
to different drums
in dialects dissonant,
unknown.

Bless me with a hug
and not a sharpened shout.

Look me in the eye
and tell me
I am worth your time
in sacred space
here free of fear
in night’s angry doubt-filled place.

Please embrace this dignity,
don’t be mean to me,
Take love’s fearsome risk
in vast integrity;

Please, please don’t shut me out…
Invite me in.
