I don’t know many people so urbanized
they would not prefer a nature preserve
and star light
for neighbors, day and night,
over a new developed suburbanization.
Not too many people smile
when they drive by a familiar farm
now scraped and scaped,
graveled and turfed,
cut down and razed with concrete foundations,
ready for more humans
not preserving natural relations
with more diverse species.
promote both natural and spiritual reserves.
External nature preservation
feels and smells and touches
internal spiritual reserves,
Most of us still cherish
natural multicultural places
as also spiritual polyphonic spaces
know as cherished neighbors.
Few of us still live and love
as residents among sacramental traces
of past Paradise.
Even if right-brain’s emotional integrity of Earth sensed
as an interdependent matriarchal reservation
for restoring justice
through multicultural preserves
for inclusively democratic peace
to prefer the smell of asphalt
and chemically treated turf,
we can still remember
sacred ecological relationships,
glowing star lit nights,
cherished campfire habitats
following only DNA’s inspired multicultural health
as spirited happiness
that what is good,
even for autonomous ego-development,
is also healthy
for sacred Nature’s preservation,
including Humane Places,
emotionally and cognitively intelligent
about what is healthy progress
and what is impoverishing regress.
in left-brain dominant prose,
We invest capitalized empowerment intention
investment in unnatural domesticated places,
re-nouns and pro-nouns more Proper,
speaking of independent ego-autonomy’s
we fail to naturally reserve more capitalization
for what feeds our Spiritual Integrity Preservation.
