Touch the Earth, Reach the Sky

Touching Earth,
reaching sky.

I walk salt shores
where all Souls fly
over joy’s ocean,
under sad bad lands
my faith in quests
we could understand.

Touch this Earth
to feel our sky.

Wise fools ask
our reasons why,
In glad lives
our answers glow,
in sad love
we learn to grow

To heal our Earth
and teach this sky

We are born
while I shall die,
Life’s my time for in between,
to build you a star,
to chase our dream

Touching Earth
while feeling sky

Hugging laughter
feeds my cry,
May I see
what we can give
for future’s child
to sacred live

We touch this Earth
to reach light’s sky

Soaring courage,
healthy high,
All Souls joining
in Earth’s flight
to touch Her right
I reach through night
for love’s last
last
last splendid sight.

This variation on Grace Lewis-McLaren’s hymn  (#301, Singing the Living Tradition) is dedicated to All Souls-PlanetEarth, especially New London, on the occasion of our Great Return, September, 2021.

Post-Millennial Parable

Once within our time,

SkyPrince and SunGod  talk,

as usual,

endlessly actually,

sending their radiant messages

out toward mutually gravitating receivers,

no Yins allowed.

SkyPrince wonders if SunGod might consider turning down his heat,

and wanders aloud as Sun burns enlightening minds,

“I’m worried about EarthGoddess,

she seems wilting

and actually melting on her polar caps.”

 

SunGod wishes this were funny,

or wrong,

just a mistake somehow,

maybe her time of this post-millennial period.

“Business As Usual,” echoes SunGod.

“My fire burns her waters into that amazing green-blue skin of hers.

Climate change pathology evolves like wind through your air-brained

SkyPrince head.

Business As Usual!”

 

Meanwhile,

WaterPrincess keeps her primally balancing distance

from SunGod’s overheating reign.

Still,

very still,

too still,

she melts within EarthGoddess.

And, with her Earth’s diverse species

until EarthGoddess’ soil becomes dry as dust.

Her cooperative economic and ecological soul

unravels dishumanic culture,

preparing for her transmutation

into Yin’s cold hibernating cave

of deep ecological nightmares,

galloping full horsepowered,

feverishly racing racism,

to prove we are chickens in our own messy soup

melting together and flying apart.

WaterPrincess weeps and seeps down in to Earth’s Core

overheating compost’s ecotherapeutic heart.

 

SunGod notices WaterPrincess,

too frequently absent from his divine comedy.

“She fails to feel my good humored rays

of wise warm radiance.

This feels more feminist Left than justly Righteous”

glooms SunGod’s manic calculating ways.

He glimpses dissonant doubt

where his regenerative organisms had been competing virgins

to cooperative sex,

much less mutually maximizing economics,

or crystal mirror echoes of ecologic myth and language.

SunGod weeps and wilts his PrincessWater.

 

Earth Goddess succumbs toward SunGod’s redeeming shaded fears.

Her revolutionary octaves fill with pregnant repurpose

and rehabilitating permacultural designs of herstory.

Her justice joys his peaceful recommitment

toward balancing polycultural praxis.

Family ecotherapy wins our enculturing history.

 

YangGod kisses EarthYinGoddess

as Left deductive embraces Right inductive primal balance

as human nature competes to cooperatively regenerate

what nature coincidately incarnates

to sing full octaved Earth Day Opera,

remembering future tales of SunLeft equals EarthRights,

as Earth resolves Sun’s pay-ray-forward gifts,

happily ever after now and here.

Becoming Climate March

Ground of Being,
Climate of All Becoming
horizon’s now moment of Earth meets Sky,

EcoSpirit bound solar fire heating air
warming crystal ice floating water
soaking absorbent soul of soil
rusting fractal minerals

decomposing eviL-ing flesh
regenerating Live-ing organic systems,

open sets inform researching rhythms
percuss prehensile patterns
of octave colored sounds in songs
reconnecting mythic culture stories
reweaving co-grounded horizon long becoming,
Be longing Nondual-Now.
