Fear InBetween Faith

Gratitude’s past grief
brief repast

When re-articulating grief
becomes transparently warm passion,
yet without terrifying overheated anger,
we are together filled with resonantly vulnerable sound
and traumatic sight,

Therein opens new possibilities,
neurological highways
surfing for resiliently polypathic gratitude,

An experiential reminder,
a virtuous feedback loop,
in which daily reborn life intends love
extends above
down beyond,
deeply rooted within
all Other

Grief of anciently fore-shadowed separation
to repair EarthTribe’s loyal gratitude.


This InBetween Climate

This in-between place
and time
and space
is queer.

Neither the straightforward seer
of new beginnings
nor the recalcitrant rear
of old sweet and sour endings.

Bicameral climates of transition
listen for our most humane imaged left
and see through our most divine beauty right
complexly bilateral metaphor,
secular and sacred transubstantiation
substantiating disempowering empowerment of creolization,
of co-investments, elite and non-elite,
of left investors
co-arising right effluent divestment
away from competing capital-headed
Business As Usual

In-between lose/lose alpha-point of birth
and win/win omega warm felt beauty
harmonious destiny,

Sacredly holistic resonance
co-passioning left-hemisphere resilient liturgies

Of songs verbally and non-verbally danced
rhythms entranced
co-gravitating with and toward trans-regenerative stories
of competitively deep curious and queer cooperations,
steeped in-between courageous analogical health
as meta-phonic wealth,

Ecologically robust polypaths
toward polyphonic metaphor.


PolyPaths Toward WarmFelt Metaphonics

A childhood memory warmly reminds

A game of Where’s the Thimble,
hidden by a gang of siblings,
or just one strategic sister,
left for me to rightly find
as I wander through our living room,
following bilateral cues,

You’re cold,
freezing really.
Now you’re getting warmer.
No, not that way,
toward winter.
Now you’re getting hot…
now boiling,
burning up!

changing through time
as metaphor
for sacred thimble climates
hidden among spatial options.

When thinking analogically,
a left-brain comparative contrast communication culture
sounds like resonantly fed
warm nutrition,
feeding and watering social hunger
and thirst left upon righteousness

While miscommunication,
deliberate mendacity
ruins our cooperative game,
analogous to toxicity,
pathological fragmentation,
predicting further degenerative disarray,
poor menu planning,
lack of win/win co-intentional play.

if feeling metaphorically,
a right-brain both/and comparative integrity
looking for a healthier re-enculturation process,
a more holistically satisfying experience,
culmination where two or more frames of reference,
trees of paradigm relationship,
are not only thought of as side-by-side, either/or
but also felt as inward nuclei, root systems
co-passioning outward climate boundary gates
breathing in/out

Here, nutrients
may also feel robust and happy,
healthy warm communication,
becoming warmer communion,
tropical creolization,
radical metaphor, yes,
but, much more significantly fundamental,
seminal for all win/win healthy global species,
metaphonic rhapsody,
polypathic polyphonics.

As left-brain polynomials
are ecologically
and theologically
and egologically
and ethologically not(not) potentially co-operative
polynomial integrity

As ZeroZone’s entropic in-between emptiness
predicts timeless intersectionally communicating fullness
of Alpha/Omega scripts

But, said the right-brain the(0)logist
to the left-brain ec(o)logist,
“Why might this be so?”

Why might left-brain’s ego-centering life
become love’s left/right win/win ocean
of DNA fractal potentialities?

Regenerative win/lose life’s global multicultural love
caring through warm cooperative theists,
reverse bilaterally refined
by not despairing, competitive atheists
longing for community,
not quite so much unfeeling entropy,
cold ecological relative analogy
of warm and full
theologically humane/divine immanent relationship.

Polyphonic polypaths
shout cold against analogical famine,
metaphoric numbness.

compare win/lose problems
to win/win solutions
in sacred stories of and about ego-lives
metaphors for epic trans-regenerational loves
suffering cold history
in search of warm thimbled happiness.

Competitive co-arising analogies
need not suppress cooperating metaphors
where warm regenerate acceptance
is not cold bad news tolerance
of competitively mendacious mediations
against brothers and sisters,
future aunts and uncles,
extending metaphoric families
of EarthTribes
turning and returning polycultural integrity
encouraging warm resonant faith
within good news living resilient rooms
and networks of global health/wealth communication.


Polyphonic Metaphor

Sacred music and liturgies
are not merely leaves and flowers
produced by complex and richly branched
and sub-branched analogies,
between ecological and theological root metaphors
of co-arising nurture;
between naturaLeft and spiritualRight co-experience
of Earth’s spiraling revolutionary nutrition;
East to West horizoned
healthy light intention.

Each regeneration absorbing fertile flowering fruit
to recreate communal caring communication
through primal musical vibrant metaphor
of ego-death mortality
compassioned yintegrity
repurposed into regenerational eco-lives,
past through future win/win epic intentions,
virtuous virality of EarthTribe’s manic DNA
for thriving health
as wealthy Yangish solo anthems.

Each courageous ego
a metaphor for Earth’s curiously spiraling revolution
iconic of DNA’s bilaterally rising and falling structural evolution,
curved waves
yang and yin spherical iconic metaphors
for left and right cranial hemispheres
emerging informed by patriarchal Western predative history
and nondualistically reformed Eastern enculturation
cooperatively co-parasitic;

Creolizing curious white light supremacy
as not not color multicultural sublimation,
monocultural suppression,
both/and polyphonic and polypathic
right-brain resonant
so also left-brain super-resilient
multicultural ecological co-empowering
monocultural theology
supplanting ego’s pursuit of monotheistic disempowering
from-above wealth

Of communally sung and danced metaphor,
sacred silent
replete with secular vibrations,
seductive and reductive,
inductive and deductive
co-arising ego/eco-sublime
metaphoric muse
of cultured octave scale
and tone
and hue;
vibrating tables of eight-fold elements
eco/theo-logically metaphonic
cooperative caring communion
both/and disunion.


BiNomial Communion

and the occasional healthy adult,
wonder why we say
Love grows more powerful than hate,
And why ecologists say
Multicultural ecosystems grow more resiliently
than post-climaxed monocultures
degeneratively fragmenting,

And yet we have these LeftBrain dominant either-or attitudes,
zero-sum evolutionary platitudes,
that differences in cultures
and religions
and species
and tribes
are more important to us
than our polyculturing
intersections of polypathic similarities.

What our left brains discover
as natural analogy,
sometimes elaborate branching trees
of nutritionally co-relational ecology,
our right brains have prehistorically felt urged to uncover
as underlying spiritual metaphor,
dynamically ethological
secular purpose recovering
sacred meaning re-exploring.

I think I agree
with nondualistic Buddhists
that communication,
like nutrition,
can be punishingly fragmenting
or healthily integrating,
and usually diverse choices,
verbal and non-verbal,
outside and inside in-between.

I feel we do not disagree.
Yet your way of sensing
seems awkward and reversed,
As communication is part of nutrition,
not only an ecological relationship
but a polypathic naturing/nurturing metaphor
for detached feeling climates
and primally attached multicultures
of resilient left either/or analogy, lie-group testing,
resonant right both/and metaphor.

It is awkward
to both metaphysically think
and physically feel
this left/right co-arising dipolar way
with deep learning metaphoric width, sweeping breadth
of dynamically sacred,
eternally timeless,
statically secular,
reductively deductive
co-relational space.

I’m feeling like you need to have the last word again.

Bicamerally right analogy
so left metaphonic communion;
health as happiness
wealth of integrity.

(non-verbally non-articulated) [Synergy]

I can still hear you,
you know.
This is an inside win/win game,
so none of your non-verbal feeling tricks
are effective for non-communication.

so I can’t see or hear that,
but I know I’m ego-safe
and we still ecopolitically matter
co-arisingly dipolar


and the occasional healthy adult,
wonder why we say
Love grows more powerful than hate,
Yet act and feel capital invested
the other competing way around.


Virile Veracity

Sacred communion,
taken in by mouth
and nose
and ear
and eye
and touch,
compassionately felt in community,

Becomes left-brain anxious about competitive totalitarian communism
while right-brain celebrating cooperative win/win Green Commons
of ancient reproductive health,
bilaterally twinned,
binomially intertwined,
bicamerally belonging

Yet longing not to become entirely ego-absorbed
without remaining cherished interdependent identity,

Part yet whole;
Whole yet apart
whole Earth polypathic
polyculturally communal,

Left secularly invincible
either/or powers of thinking
with sacred Right both/and feeling invisible

Transparent flexibility
mixed with absorbing love,
together breeding Integrity

Coming of age,
Going of non-change

Viral spirals
downward viciously viscous
and upward
virtuously visionary,


Identity discovered through relationship,
nutrition recovered through nurturing nature,
culture uncovered through history,
theology covered through ecology,

Transcendent revolution through immanent evolution,
communal experience through communication,
secular thoughts through sacred apparitions,
motions through emotions,

Here through now,
Space through time,
Community through communion.

Man/Sha Legends

Greatest Story Never Told

This story remains unfinished
as do all the best tales told.
Yet I must warn you
it has a happy ending,
not dystopian,
although not a finished
political utopia,
Ever After LoveLife.

Where this story begins
remains a mystery,
like a definition for “Tao”
more obscure than refining Yang
with Yin sublime co-relationship,

Which is, and is not,
equivalent with white and black,
and all curious colors in-between
masculine and feminist,
left-brain dominant strength
and right-brain prominent flow;
liberties egalitarian and freedoms interdependent,
powers and passions,
climates and cultures,
natures and nurtures
secular and sacred,
ego- and eco-systemic
wealth as health,
love as life…

I believe
this unfinished end
revisits our Green Sanctuary origins,
Earth as Eden,
Humane life as divine love
where Gaia danced with interior/exterior humane voices
long before humanity was a tremor in Her womb
of left-brain dominant verbal becoming retold history.

Whether such a vast stage of DNA origin,
hoary with memoried and imagined Time,
affluently historical
and effluently cultural,
this is,
or hopes to one day become,
The Greatest Story Not Ever Told,
if only because we have been so Business As Usual
win-losing recycling spirals
conjoining Alphas and Omegas,
great transitional beginnings
with endings not yet visible,
or even vicariously heard,

Not ever completing
all Win/Win interdependent co-relationships
TaoTime invites
with compassion,
curious courage,
transparent vulnerability.

But, you were asking about New London
in particular place and time,
a Connecticut town of about 30,000,
home of the Coast Guard
and Pfizer
and a Unitarian-Universalist Center
everybody knows as All Souls
and most every multicultural body repeats
their logo,
“Where all Souls are welcome.”

Strangely enough
I think the GrantWriter
was from out of town,
without any long-term relationships in New London
or business
or our eclectic religious sector.

The GrantWriter:

Such profound disconnection
feels uncomfortable
not comfitting
for growing deep and wide compassion roots.

So, I did what I do,
I wrote an unfinishable proposal
about how to grow a resiliently healthy love life
in and with and for New London,
about why we each and all need a new win/win cooperative theory
and practice
for regenerative climate development;
so also against degenerative overheated
and frozen anti-health development.

Too much of my own learning experience
emphasized the sterile science
and dyspeptic un-communioned arts
of grief about lose/lose monoculturing climate terror trends,

So what would the opposite polycultural outcomes
of such environmental disaster feel like?
Look like?
Taste like?
Sound like?

How would we reattach to sacred gratitude
as a win/win species?
Now living in side-by-side autocratic/democratic silo communities
wrestling with win/lose economic capital-hoarding competition models
for natural and spiritual and financial survival.

Where are our active gratitude models
for win/win healthy wealth optimization?

One day
listening to Pamela Sparr,
not New London talent,
but encountered in an All Souls reading circle book,
Justice On Earth,
we cooperatively evolved five steps
Out of Our Silos and Selves:

1) Propose a bolder win/win,
prophetic resilient image
of a mutually compassionate ecopolitics.

2) Develop communally incarnated courage
multicultural curiosity
capacity to listen
naturally left and spiritually right
ego-eco-theo-logically taoistic nutritional.

3) Look for win/win gratitude experiences
outside our side by side religious sanctuaries
and inside organic health farms
of resiliently ego-masculine
resonantly eco-feminist communication.

4) Engage with radical outdoor Earth voices
for interdependent co-passion
building up and out
and down and in
multicultural communion.

5) Increase win/win
polycultural gratitude
for health/wealth inspired
co-refining secular/sacred experience
of cognitive/emotive
culture/climate transformation.


Note:  First in a series of integral win/win cooperative health system proposals.
