Designing Healthier Democracy

Green democratic design,
like PermaCulture Design,
intends polyculturally resilient nutritional outcomes
for global, as for local, interdependently co-attracted ecosystems
composed, in designing part,
of social-ego communication networks.

Nutritionally attractive outcomes,
and not so much toxically extractive capital incomes,
are naturally and spiritually favored by democratic energy co-investors,

Including,
more recently,
AgriCulture’s capital investments in extracting nutrients without replacing,
harvesting forests without planting,
maintaining,
mutually nourishing multicultural saplings,
now sadly recognized as monocultural
unattractive Business As Usual
leading to toxic fading
fragmenting
global and local sustainable extended energy-family incomes
shrinking future Earth resilience
to feed corporate short-term strangling wealth,
capital-infested.

PermaCulture Design,
like democratic energy of attraction redesigns
for resolving kleptocratic energy of extraction undesign,
like nondualistic indigenous wisdom of a win/win GoldenRule child,
may distinguish,
but would never divide,
as capitalism does,
organic forest health
from permacultural everybody wealth.

Military FireWork

He said the undiplomatic cost
to all of us freedom celebrators,
to firstborn sons and daughters,
to last born future children,
would be far less
than its liberating value.

Value for and against whom?

Value for and against what healthy purpose?

Value for and against which wealthy constituents?

He couldn’t say,
or wouldn’t,
or shouldn’t

Because he couldn’t listen
and wouldn’t savor
democratic peace.

Medicinal Round

There once was a ruler with crown
so heavy it caused him to frown
when he gave it away
some folks say to this day
it grew lighter while revolving around.

There once were most men with dementia
so heavy it caused them hornetia
when they co-operated away
women say to this day
they grew brighter while playing relentia.

There once was a species competitive
so heavy it paused their co-operative,
when ego turned round
then eco rewound
and Earth grew collaterally revolutative.

There once was a Julian Jaynes,
he noticed our bicameral brains
our Left sends petitions
to Right’s primal conditions
so confluent brains think in trains.

There once was a Buckminster Fuller
who found dominant economics quite duller
than intelligent co-operations
for networking our nations
to grow optimal Tipping Point rudders.

There once was a speaker of Tao
who noticed nature’s patterns of Time,
he said that our space
carries time’s memory of place
a polynomial formation of spacetime.

There once was a Gregori Perelman
who listened to Group Theory’s binomial span
he stuck in a zero
and out plopped a hero
for mythically logical pan-economical fans.

There once was a Clay Math dissonance
searching polynomial informance
it took a long time
to hear monomial’s rhyme
Left’s polynomial evolves Right’s binomial confluence.

There once was a mathematician named Euler
who thought of time’s space as co-ruler
prime relational function
forms places with gumption
convex over concave zeroistic geologic of Fuller.

We once were all rulers with crowns
so heavy they competitively frowned
when we gave them away
spacetime’s polycultural way
grew enlightenment co-operating a round.

Facilitating Beauty

Beauty bursts surprising grace in place and space.

But infatuation,

addiction,

potential love of beauty

a hope becoming faith,

sustained or unsustainable

through active peace recovery.

Beauty grows through relationship

as part of goodness,

wellness,

or even excess.

Creative beauty thrives through time

each moment we return to places

where rejoin our longing and belonging

our purpose with our meaning,

our becoming in this being

at this time

and in this relationship of home.

 

Pupils facilitate beauty but do not smile;

they shrink or swell

inviting light’s response,

or not so much.

 

Nonviolent beauty-communicators

are better at mentoring active and accurate listening

than perfect-pitch harmonious speaking,

where p and b so often hear confused.

Speaking harmony of active peace

requires both non-violent listening

and positively nutritious proactive advocates

for mutual understanding and gratitude

for each weirdo other.

Beauty School

Pupils do not smile;

they do shrink or swell

inviting light’s response,

or not so much.

 

Beauty bursts surprising grace in place and space.

But infatuation,

addictive potential love of beauty,

hope becoming faith,

sustained or unsustainable through repeating peace recovery.

 

Beauty grows through relationship,

the surface of goodness,

wellness,

or even excess.

Creative beauty thrives through time

each moment we return to places

where rejoin our longing and belonging

our purpose with our meaning

our becoming in this being

our function in this in-formation

at this time

and in this relationship of home.

 

Pupils do not smile so much as mutually swell.
