What Did You Expect?

What did you expect
on your way to shared sanctuary today?
Did you expect to return unchanged?
The same as that earlier person
on your way?
What would be your purpose
for participating in this faithful revolution
with such slight anticipation?

What did you mean
when you said, about tomorrow,
It already is only the other side of this cameo-staged day?
The other side of yesterday
Each day as unique as fingerprints
worn down and raised up
pressed out to regrow in
harmed and healed
ridged and faded
miraculous unchanging change
between yesterday
and tomorrow’s seamless identity.

On your way up and out this morning,
did you truly expect to go to sleep tonight
the same person,
a day older
but probably not sufficiently wiser?

On your way to sleep tonight,
rooted in yesterday’s warm and cold experience,
why wouldn’t you expect to arise tomorrow
in the second half of this conscious time,
changed by dreams of risky adventures
in unchanging opportunistic sanctuary?

Anonymous personal expectation
for intimate political anticipation
Withdrawn from constant shadow
drawn toward changing light.

Eden Garden Dreams

Gardens,
like dreams
and other multiculturing complexities,
process
and sometimes progress into becoming ripe,
then unbecoming dormancy,
advent of and for regardening
redreaming seeds
preparing to further process

Perennial primal roots deepening into
new spring’s progressive attachment
network of polycultural dream garden nutrition,
aesthetic nurture,
ethical nature,
animating spirit of Earth’s co-arising life.

Eden’s original rising
and subsequent falling Garden
surrounds our GreenTribal Tree
of Ego/Eco-centering Life and WinterDeath.

The Creator’s forbidden foreshadow Tree
of Good and Evil
is a secondary,
yet divinely co-inspired, Tree
on our LeftBrain monocultural way
toward reducing Life to Good
and seducing Death through Evil–

Dreaming up and down
Win to Lose evolutionary models
and capitalism’s mono-atheistic further investments
in secularizing-commodifying Life
while spiritualizing accommodating Death;
praising win-win peace
while raising lose-lose Falls
re-enacting retributive divine greed,
detached disdaining injustice,
childish, perhaps adolescent at best, pettiness.

Evil, like Death,
is no more original
than the Great Fall and Eternal Winter,
whether we see and hear,
taste and touch
as divine Gardeners
or merely regenesis EarthTribal dreamers
of generic Spring uprisings
and Summer sensory climaxes
for Eden’s Tree of cooperatively original EcoLife,
and secondarily hibernating foreshadows of Ego-Death

Waiting
like an original Falling spring
for our ecofeminist deep green learning RightBrain

Rising Up
like a new spring garden,
like a dreaming root-systemic Tree
of GoodLife win-win cooperative processes
and EvilDeath lose-lose competitive climate pathology
of and for further revolutionary
divinely inspired creations,
re-creations,
evolutions and devolutions
in Eden Gardens,
regenerative and degenerative dreams
co-arising good and evil fruit
absorbed by ecofeminists
and devoured by patriarchs

Together
equally interdependent
in good life
through evil death
EarthTribal loyalty,
interdependent patriotism,
universal solidarity,
compassion,
love

Original humane/divine attachment
and secondary wealth detachment
and tertiary health regenesis.

Ecology of Revolution

I remember
a young child in Sunday School
wondering what Jesus meant
when he said,
I have come out

into Earth’s narrative
to turn Her upside down.

How could this be true,
when he also taught that those who receive more
will get more,
and vice versa;
less worthy grace
for less valued face.

This didn’t sound right,
yet it did seem exciting,
Like something to hope for
even though Jesus didn’t really get the job done,
or at least not here
where I was
and not now
when I am.

It has taken a lifetime
of wondering about that curious and courageous,
audacious and admonishing claim
to realize Earth’s nutritional narrative
isn’t about turning planets
or people
spatially upside down,

But is all about returning Earth temporally inside out,
back forth
reverse forward,
principles for reverting revolutions.

For example,
Indigenous wisdom understood
we are here as one people,
one sacred Tribe,
to serve the health needs
and wealth wants
of EarthMother.

Just as Western patriarchal capitalism misunderstands
Earth is here
as our anthropocentric commodity,
one secular planet
to excavate
exploit
extract
rape
enslave
colonize
market
discount
clearance sale
to sever Her health needs
from our capital-hoarding wealth wants
before She inevitably dies.

What Jesus calls upside down
and inside out,
Laotse’s listeners call
a Principle of Reversion
back to when Yin induced Yang
so Yang would compassionately deduce Yin’s love
for humane wealth Truth
serving Earth’s health-revolutionary Beauty,

With much more cooperative economic outcomes
than leftbrain dominant competitive political incomes.

Gospel Rewrites

I think, and sometimes fear,
we have two ways, maybe more,
to read the four holy gospels,
and any sacred scripture,
and any regeneration/degeneration story
of creative tension,
win/win sweet spot future aspirations
midst win/lose historic raw spots
of past experience.

We can read Earth’s inspired articulations
as a book of spiritually correct answers,
removed from complex historical-cultural context
in a move toward fundamentally correct creed development
for moral
and political
and economic
and ecological correctness.

And/or
we can listen for Earth’s expirations
and inspirations,
reading and listening to naturally spiritual correcting questions,
embedded in universal historical
and uniting multicultural content
of fundamentally healthy development
for resiliently robust climates
and cultures,
timeless times of spiraling revolutionary win/win
ego/eco-logical balance corrections.

If we too readily approach sacred scripture for morally correct answers,
we are likely to forget
divine purpose seeks better,
more inclusive,
inviting,
transparent,
vulnerable,
courageous and curious health questions.

Following Our Rules

In our Sharing Circles
we have a ground rule
to share a one speaker at a time floor
and unitarian silent listening support

And rules to not verbally share uninvited commentary
suggestions
agreements or disagreements
during, and after,
this formalized Circle.

Speakers are invited to share from experience only,
not from someone else’s story,
experiential and/or theoretical,
parental and/or academic,
personal and/or professional.

This is a Closed Circle
of verbal communications,
a rhetorically autonomous inside job
only silently noting our egalitarian
nonjudgmental
side by sideness
of authority
responsibility
compassion;

Help,
Thanks,
Wow!;

Truth,
Beauty,
Silent Passion…

If we are a composition,
we enter an historic symphony of solo voices
implicitly singing our universality
experiencing time’s nurturing
and severing qualities
and relentlessly insufficient quantity,
except when anyone else is speaking
business as too coldly
or too warmly
usual.

In our Reading Circles
our implicit ground rule culture differs
more in favor of the spontaneous spoken word,
this good news,
extemporaneous,
and bad fake news,
distemper-odious,
gospel we scribe together,

Usually one voice leading
a sustained melodic theme,
sometimes harmonic and splendid,
sometimes dissonant and diminished,
inviting in compassionate responses,
major and minor,
listening for counter-melodies,
for analogies
metaphors
curious oxymorons,
outrageous internal pun fun,
rhymes
and maybe the occasional reason,
held with soft determination
and not hard determinism.

Participants are invited to share
harmonic voices of MeToo
and to gently question why
my own dissonantly deviant choice
traps me in feeling detached,
uncertain,
less certain,
more certain we must be missing
some counter-balancing dirge of risk
and full-circle opportunities
for evolving peaceful revolutions.

We sing in Open Circle rounds
of theory meets experience
greets political philosophy
and primal attachment theory
applications to all relationships
ego logical and unlogical and anti-logical
and dis-passionate,
conscious and unconscious and suppressed consciousness
and more dispassion,
and ecological and ecosystemic
and healthy climate logical
for growing reading circles
into speaking and listening communion rounds
of timeless symphonic conversation,
dia-logos about favored/unflavored mythos.

Cooperative conveners
encourage each other
to speak from felt experience
of belief and disbelief
in some published teacher’s expression of experience
with timeless patience and time-heavy impatience,
of joy and sorrow,
courage and curiosity,
compassion and dispassion,
intimacy and repulsion,
about some subject’s story,

Where it does and does not meet our own time
chosen and not chosen
political and personal
economic and ecological
natural and spiritual
secular and sacred
regressive and progressive
inhaled and exhaled
patriarchal and matriarchal
competitive and cooperative
vulnerable and transparent
longing and belonging

New yet old
wealthy when healthy,
democratic when not kleptocratic,
integral when not fragmenting,
unitarian when not too universally closed
to further sacred gospel co-inspirations,
co-passion,
co-presence,

Timeless unity
yet eternal open university,

Secure rounds
yet within freeing surrounds,

Cultural sweet spots
within historic raw plots.

Peaceful Revolutions

History
as we shall see
is inevitably
win/win felt revolutionary resonant
more powerfully experienced
than win/lose evolution
thought theoretically resilient.

Technology of YangNature,
like ecology of sacred YinNurture
begins with regenerative secular tools
for Yang’s original EarthPatriotic intentions

As seen and felt
in seasonal choreography,

Economies of nutrition tales
and transactional double-boundary strings
of double-binding attachment
to win/win multicultural health outcomes

And ecofeminist re-attaching holistic circle cords
whisper epic revolutionary rhetorical events,

Life song evolution stories
of unchoreographed spontaneity,
win/win tools for freedom
to dance with yin-spirit
more graceful integrity
than marching monoculturally
in service of LordMaster
mono-egotistic
autonomous, so venomous,
PatriarchalYang.

Feminist theologians,
like ecologicians,
urge us to refrain from devolutionary lose/lose narratives
apocalyptically dominating our sacred win/win climate view.

We seem,
at our optimistic best,
ambivalently capable
of re-creating our own leftbrain dominant
technocentrically industrious destruction
of Earth’s original organic multicultural operations,

Cooperative muses of sound,
breath,
rhythm,
pattern,
pitch,
tone,
touch,
feel,
smell,
tasting secular health without
sacred wealth within

ReMembering raw spot pathology events
with competitive distrust
and divestment,

SelfRighteously justifying our weapons
for severing nature’s healthy future
from spirit’s robust wealthy past
sweet spot renaissance complexities
musically resonant history
ecologically resilient,

LeftBrain dominant
worshiping RightBrain pre-eminent
original EarthMother creolization,
co-acclimating tool
for transubstantiating
individuation of Yang/Yin identity balance
double-binding co-perseverance,
co-passionate
ego/eco-therapeutic non-weapons
for true wealth success
worshiping beauty of Earth’s historic PeaceMuse
communion.

Dissonant music recreates
our own leftbrain dominant destroyer
of multiculturally robust outcomes
now evolving into a radically different left/right harmonic creature
we have no reason to fear
or suspect of becoming any relationship less than a healthy climate
of resilient wealth.

Our popular leftbrain dominant monoculture
evolves a merely technological hubris march
toward co-disempowering astronomical Testosterone,

Win/Lose ZeroSum geometrically predicting
our losing climate pathology future
unable to neuro-musicologically accept
cooperative win/win harmonic responsibility
for natural/spiritual symphonic
ecosystemic healthy wealth

By not over-investing
in leftbrain technologically entertaining
explosive adventure myths
and apocalyptic histories,

Prophecies born of right-wing Rapture anxieties
taking perverse escapist pleasure
nihilistically distracting our embodied ego-centers
with anti-musical fascist portrayals
of our LoseLeft v LoseRight powerlessness,
naked organic humanity v MotherEarth’s climate revenge,

Fetuses
v EarthMothers freely choosing to prey upon their own resiliently nurturing wombs,

Abortion
of freedom to choose win/win
healthy climate pre-revolutionary lives
with more bilaterally balancing harmonies
favoring resilient health/wealth
yang/yin
ego/eco-therapeutic
C/E-Musing
perfect third bicameral choice
of rhetorical voice
her with his co-passionate fertile story
revolutionarily un-weaponable.

PolyNomially healthy Muses
co-revolving sweet spot
not not
PolyPhonically resonant,
robust,
rich Music.

Mystery of internal music history,
like communal external ecology,
grows inevitably
win/win revolutionary
when more powerfully tooled multiculturally
than weaponed win/lose
dissonantly evolutionary.

Right Side of our Bed

Some mornings I awaken slowly
to knowing too much
and yet never enough.

Some nights I drift off quickly
feeling too many disassociating memories,
never inviting enough connection.

Sometimes invitation into a healthier life
feels like addiction to wealthier love.

Sometimes I wonder who decides
when a pregnancy has reached perfect climax;
Where more time inside would become toxic
yet not too soon for optimizing healthy outside invitation
into Earth’s deeper and wider Gaian womb
of spiraling revolution.

Sometimes I feel changed
transformed
more cooperatively win/win co-acclimated
transubstantiated
creolizing
reformed
returning
reviewed by EarthMother ancestors
fulfilling MotherEarth’s rebirth
of DNA-inspired nurturing nutritional prophecies
throughout history’s Six Great Extinctions.

Sometimes we become the post-millennial herstory,
perfectly timed,
not too critically hot
and not too chronically cold
AllSouls culmination of climate rebirthing risk
and mutually therapeutic opportunity;

The Seventh bicameral enrapturing regeneration,
Left ego-natures
and Right eco-spirited,
secular/sacred cooperative,
Either/Or and Both/And
RightBrain more prominently egalitarian,
win/lose and win/win strategic health-game players
universal and unitarian,
walled ego-identities
and yet webbed ecotherapists
Yanged Yinning
seventh inning,

Three diminsional massive space energy
with One ZeroZone bilaterally open dimension
linear and yet non-linear,
perhaps wave spiraling solar and lunar revolutions
from EarthMother into MotherEarth
restoring healthy prophetic rebirth,
not too ego-opportunistically soon
and yet not too ecopolitically late.

Some mornings I awaken quickly
to knowing too much toxic history
and yet never enough therapeutic re-creative herstory.
