Sometime During the Night

Sometime during the night
I knew what was more right
to sing our songs
with great yang might
and soft yintegrity’s not wrongs.

We could sustain our notes
within this singing circle,
whether loud or soft,
but not too soft
to slowly feel our pitch
veer yinly flat.

Whether bright or dull,
vibrato or flat-line pure linear
waves of yang/yin sounds
to hear
to uniformly match dipolar
co-arising
and multiculturally mixed.

Then, as we listen and sustain,
we are free to retain our interdependent voices
of dissonance and confluence,
of dissent and harmony,
of resistance and peace,
and also free to change
toward growing harmony
or growing disharmony.

And, as we listen for re-alignments
in our ego/eco-voicing stream of time,
we grow free to hear with right-hemispheric wholeness
of our collective chord changes,
fluctuations,
together soft,
now growing louder,
softer,
bolder,
more peaceful
until fading into silent joy,
listening to our echoing after-ring power
of collective yang/yin reweaving memory.

We are no different,
on our better win/win communicating days,
of listening to curiously understand
than actively speaking out and up
for ego/ecological resilience
timelessly echoing,
both vibrato and flat-line
peacefully ever mountain/valley after.

Nutritional Pathways

Resonant metaphors are nourishing polypaths
analogous to rich polyphonic relationships
comparing polynomial poetic communications
complexly contrasting nondual polarities

For those with humane identities
informed by richly cultivated Win/Win faith
to hear and feel eco-them
as the healthiest integrity
with curiously wealthy
courageous ego-us

Building not necessarily not
ZeroSoul metaphors
appealing not to and not for,
but always integrally with,
ZeroSum polypathic potential.

Missing Mom’ s ReBirthday

She would be ninety-two today
if I had my way
Back to where we were
Fast approaching her annual Day.

But now I feel too anonymously alone.
She took my best self memories with her.
I wanted to go a bit further to life’s bone
with her empathic comfort skills
expanding our mutual listening ZeroZone.

She often cautioned
against going too far alone
too fast
to speak denser wisdom
preferred traveling together
far past
today’s too volatile weather.

I miss her custodial care
And listen for her fast and far accessed awareness
together born of ancient DNA solidity
returning her most resilient revisiting integrity

Within this slow-paced dare,
our timelessly untraveled changing day
and night right time
to renew her listening care
more internally unspoken rhymes
compared to her
more accomplished communal way.

She must be ninety-two today
when I’ve had my best way
Back to where we are
Fast approaching each ReBirth Day.

Earth Sanctuary

I live in a curious network of relationships,
most quietly quite lovely
and a few more intensely challenging
unrelation shipped-out

In here both/and building awareness
is our non-verbal norm
of gesture
intent
confluent action
with congruent thought
reactions,

While large-scale one-way either true or false
linear messages spread out like win-or-lose economies
and politically powerful influences
to commodify,
to perpetuate tomorrow’s consumer of either/or noise

Not as courageously authentic
and curiously integral,
holistic
as our original Earth Paradise
networking win/win potentiality
reweaving shared reality

So much positive opportunity
for improvement;
So little negative risk
of unmovement.

I hear far more win/lose
than I can possibly win/win co-respond.
This is both intensely challenging
and yet, curiously,
quietly quite lovely.

Safe Home

SafeHome is not so much a real place
as a destiny longed for
on our lifetime journey toward dynamic well-being,
too healthily robust to fear growing homeless and friendless.

SafeHome is not an unchanging Paradise,
statically without resonantly changing,
slow-turning nutritious seasons,
ups and downs,
ins and outs.

Such conservative stability, uniformity
could never be my red-blooded idea
of brilliantly resilient Heaven.

So, when Earth’s climate pressures,
internally and externally competing
to my point of ego-aggression,
notice chronic stress climbing up my back
and shoulders,
brain stem and frontal cortex
concerned about politically left and personally unself-righteous depression,

When cynicism about never ever loving enough WinWin RealTimes
RealTalk
Real cooperative integrity walks
into co-passioning solidarity,

Then my SafeHome destined child and parent voices
prefer WinWin economic ecological sanctuary
removed from WinLose habitual habitats,
dissonant stuckness
never ever feeling like healthy SafeHome resilience.

Homes resonantly sustained
First, by dynamic cooperative resonance
with all EarthTribes
occupying cooperative health vocational preoccupations

And, Second,
actively seeking sanctuaries cooperatively facilitating,
feeding,
watering,
fueling ongoing multicultural nutritional development

HealthyWealth SafeHomes
plant and harvest socially compassionate,
interdependent health-resonant relationships,
polyculturally resilient,
spiritually and naturally polypathic, nonsectarian,
democratically positive energetic, dynamic systems
forming SafeWombed
flow-functions,
universal inside survivor memories
of cooperative sanctuary, originally outside warm wombs

From SafeWombs
emerge WinWin infants, then young and free children
who become WinWin parents and teachers and gratitude preachers,
eco-listeners and ego-speakers
longing for compassionately cooperative SafeHome returns,
pilgrimages toward universal solidarity,
unitarian SafeHome interdependence.

A long strong ZeroZone SafeHome
for robust reunification
within EarthTribe graced communions, healthy
green cooperatives,
permaculturally wealthy
deep learning lifetimes
for green STEAM educational placements,
safe ZeroBalancing carbon-based residencies
in WinWin learning civilizations.

Beliefistic Behaviorism

LeftBrain thought powers
follow RightBrain warm light and cold dark feelings.

Like behavior follows beliefs
follow repeated warm/cold rituals
follow entrenched belief networks
building walls between appositional changes
of positive/negative trend directions
too often complexly confused

With antithetical divine/human
spirit/nature
outside/inside oxymoronic opposition
where ecological true cannot be a false ego-unlogical thesis
and must be, at least LeftBrain deductively
left not not false right now,
holistically here
in time-spaced flows
of felt health climate passage.

Transitioning revolutionary future thoughts follow past resonant
and dissonant,
healthy and pathological feelings,
and apathetic unfeelings
follow learned and inherited behaviors
follow integral beliefs in past through future eternal memories
felt sacred as DNA enscriptions
toward healthy light integrity
absorbs pathological dark ego-sectarian mendacity

So too,
future ecoschool non-violent instructions
prescriptions
formulas felt
and thought Win/Win descriptive
of past healthy memories

Told and then written down as sacred scripture thoughts
originally eco-theological
following light and dark strictures
felt secularly ecological,
refining risky LeftBrain oppositional limits of thought
defining Whole NonViolent Systems
RightBrain felt as holonically integral Win/Win opportunity,

Synergetic healthy climate thoughts
following feelings for cooperative eco-schooled
ego-listening for WinWin reweaving integrity.

Music Therapy

My LeftBrain is busy reading a book
on what Systems Theory
and thinking
and experience find encouraging
for WinWin social change,
where no losers are allowed to fail
at thriving away from WinLose capital stuckness
in everyday mundane egocentrism,

But,
at the same time
my RightBrain is trying to imagine how to share
scat jazz vocal experiments
so other sanctuary choir members
can have the same celebratory
and non-violent communication through music appreciation
that is in my practice
practice
and procedure skill-set,
more intuitive,
and less LeftBrain deductive.

I get to the bottom of my first paragraph today
and realize something has gone quite wrong
or right
and probably not not seductively wrong
so perhaps intuitively and inclusively correct,
true to nurtured experience,
helpful,
effective,
viable,
healthy.

I reread
and realize I’m not only writing in bracketed commentary
but also substituting a music paradigm
for a therapeutic systems change paradigm.

“The [vocal jazz] group
also identified several [harmonic] strategies
as shown in [chord and rhythmic flow notations]
on the importance of [diverse] community engagement.”

“[Jazz note and timing choices] capture the value
of asset mapping to identifying
and bridging [musical] opportunity gaps.”

“[Scat jazz] affirms the [political democratic empowerment] importance
of [not just LeftBrain] planning
for the built [notation] environment.”

“[Cleft, rhythm and key] Factors in the upper left corner
of the [two-voice] diagram
that impact the target [listener’s auditory] constraints
are [trebleYang and bassYin] shown.”

“Finally, in its [scaled octave] line[s]
at the bottom [through top] of the [musical] diagram,
the [jazz ensemble] acknowledge
the importance of [vocally] shifting [Left and Right, treble and bass]
mental models
throughout the [improvisation] process.”

Seems like a long-winded LeftBrain way of saying
Go with your flow of harmonic/dissonant options
to achieve our highest and best healthy enriching choices
together
as both performers
and interactive listeners,

But, some people don’t get RightBrain lost in the details
like I do,
so maybe some musicians,
wanting to make more resonant systemic change choices,
would find it helpful
for group jazz karaoke night
improvising green sanctuary social change
through harmonic solidarity.
