In Our Distance Circle

Once upon time’s center
grows two permaculturing farmers,
multicultural mediators
of Earth’s healthy polypathic remainder,

And, surrounding them,
seven elders
and their cheer leading mascot
of disabling foolery

Arriving each spring
in his wheeled chair
to witness
and sometimes loudly prophecy,
to entertain with his win/win intentions,
studying compassionate economics
and empowering politics
and enlightening neurological communion
v dissonance.

These aged and playful snowbirds
form a Wisdom Circle
conjoined by all farmers

Committed to Earth’s health care
in humble Vermont neighborhood places
spaces balancing Green Lives Matter races
into organically interdependent co-investments.

This Circle plans cooperative gardens,
MultiCulturally designing
and redesigning shared outdoor climate spaces
in and on now abandoned places
they purchase together
to divest of Green Commons neglect
and invest in a local cooperatively-held enterprise

With land and water and healthy air-based capital
where patient customers
become curious partners
contributing cash
but also labor,
beauty
and nutritional equity,
gracious investment
and/or benignly viral infestment.

This Green Wisdom Circle
plants fruit and nut trees,
vegetables EarthMothers insist they eat
and would like as much as fruit sweet
if they remain of right/left balancing mind.

They plant hemp,
and make baskets
and yoga mats
during dispersed winters
into the retiring diaspora
season for planning futures
of health restoring EarthJustice.

Circles of weavers
and knitters
turn lambs
into shorn sheep
into yarn
into blankets
socks
sweaters
skullcaps
winter masks
with ear muff handles.

Eventually
this Circle will reincarnate Wisdom
into Fire Circles for compline meditations
and story telling
into Singing Circles
of care medication
for young through old,
for those present living now,
and here dead
and yet to arrive
within all sacred regenerating species,

Egos circling within ecosystems,
interweaving networks
of TruthSeeker Circles
sharing win/win BeautyVisions,

Communion Farming Centers
within nonviolent communication systems
for engaging nutritional health,

Sacred ZeroCore recovery Allies,
not Lone Warriors,
within Earth’s fully present
compassionate
care giving as receiving.

Colorful Cultures

White is fundamental absence of color,
as is evangelical black.
But, white is colorless
due to emptiness
while black
because of good news fullness.

Transparency is presence of visibility
as is not darkness
but transparency is void
where opaque is dense.

Life is absence of death
as death is absence of life.
But, life is full and dense
while death is empty and void.

Promising evangelical integrity of all motions and emotions
actions and reactions
presence and co-presence
in-between radically sacred
and fundamentally secular
cultures of dualistic meaning
evolve courageously bright
with loads of curious light.

Damnations

Dad,
why is the white skin on your capitalist legs
so dry?

Well,
I got older…
Damn,
I knew that would happen
if I continued breathing!

Anyway,
and I also forgot
to apply my cooperative lotion this morning,
and maybe too warmly competing yesterdays…
Damn climate change!
I knew that would happen…

A Social Complex

What is social complexity?
asks and answers Robert Wright
which also reads just as right as
What is regenerative density?
to me
and perhaps to Bucky Fuller,
and then again Gregory Bateson’s
What is sacred ecology?
comes to reweave Laotse’s
What is self/other-regenerative abundant flow of governance?

Mr. Wright
looks back to Mr. Leslie White:
“Cultural [and economic and political and psychological] evolution,
he (White) announced,
could be measured by a single [appositional]gauge,
calibrated in terms of [regenerative/degenerative] energy.”

Mr. Wright,
quoting Mr. White-Wright creolization,
“[Multi]Culture develops
when the amount of energy harnessed
[net produced-regenerate/consumed-degenerate]
by man [and woman and all EarthTribes and Earth and all healthy developing/maturing/aging organic systems]
per [(0)-Sum WinWin] capita
per year
per life
is increased [more cooperative WinWin than competitive WinLose]”;

Mr. Wright,
about Mr White,
“He virtually equated cultural evolution
with the [ecopolitical] evolution
of [positive-WinWin/negative-WinLose] energy [self-regenerative] technology.
The [regenerative integrating-nurturing] efficiency
with which [positive] energy is captured [harvested, cooperatively invited]
and employed [co-invested]
wasn’t just a cause,
or a gauge,
but the [winwin-both/and with either/or bilateral] cause,
and the [bicameral balancing] gauge,
of [ecopolitical] [multi]cultural evolution.”

What is Earth’s ecopolitical creolizing-democratizing complexity?
What is growing regenerative health-wealth density
while shrinking degenerative EitherOr LeftBrain deductive
Patriarchal Anthro-Elitist dominance?

When I want to hear more social complexity,
I stay inside and listen to the OldNews.
When I want to see and hear and smell more global regenerativity,
climate and landscape health and safety,
I step outside
and remain there as cooperatively as possible
for as long as possible,
and usually as silently as possible,
although singing and laughter and dancing are coopratively invited.

I cannot sustain an inside voice of War against Patriarchal Terrorists,
but I can maintain an outside voice of Nurturing
with Matriarchal-WinWin Cooperative CoOwnership.

Anthro-rhetorical complexity
and regenerative-integrity density
are the same organic-systemic becoming,
both Left-WinWin regenerative and ElderRight-WinLose degenerative-antipathic distrust and co-empathic-aptic trust
in DNA’s BiLateral-CoOperative Business As Usual
on and with and of and for ever more
Yin-matriarchal/Yang-patriarchal
regenerating ecopolitical density.

Quotes from Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny, p. 344, Robert Wright, 2000.

Singing for Stevie’s Wonder

I remember,
in the early 60s,
our thirty mile drive
from our historic family farm,
in all White rural Michigan,
not counting the Mexican migrant workers
which adults made a point of discounting,
on the first of several shopping trips to Thrifty Acres,
through vibrantly young all Black urban streets
of nearby Lansing.

Making Stevie Wonder and I,
him singing in all Black city churches
and me in all White rural and small village churches,
harmonic neighbors in my privately humming heart
yet never possible to publicly meet and greet
as this nation and this world were meant to sing
and dance our regenerations not apart.

I didn’t know apartheid by default yet
but I do remember
seeing nearly black as ink skin for the very first time
on a smiling brown-eyed boy
on a chipped white painted bicycle without rims,
and longing to talk and listen with him
and laugh with him about the fresh green smell of freedom from training wheels,
freedom to create our own fast pedaling breeze
across our summer-hot black and white faces and arms,
and knowing that I would touch his dark warm skin
with loving wonder
about what it could be like to become with him,
to grow together,
to smell and feel and fly our satisfying diverse integrity
on a tandem red in-your-face bike,
bright shining all the way back
from Black-streets Lansing
through little White Woodland,
spreading across all Black with White Capital Cities
on out to woodland farmers,
to peddle fly while singing our glad hosanna wonders.

As I reweave
this first drive by encounter with racial diversity
and humane ecstatic curiosity,
I imagine asking Mom to stop,
pull our metallic gold Ford over
so I could ask his thick black-framed glasses name,
which would be Stevie,
and take his hand
to walk his bike back to his home and family
where we would live together
happily and most prosperously ever after.

This was my moment,
too quickly passed,
to know passion’s love at first sight,
these sublime sounds and dark satin skin smells
of Stevie’s Wonder.
