Competing Roads to Peace

History,
one of the Muses,
like Music,
and Poetry,
and Liturgical FireCircle Dance,
and Regenerative Design,
offers three types of fertility/bereavement stories:

Yangy War stories,
Yinnish Peace stories,
And everything in-between life and death,

Hybrids of diverse creative and degenerative tensions
struggling with and against each Other.

War stories remind us
no one is special dead.

Peace stories reweave us
Everyone is uniquely special
called and challenged
fully alive

In-between stories
restore and destroy
special GoldenRule meanings
for and against unanimous death
of EarthlyOther
as our co-empathic EgoSelves.

War stories sadly proliferate
like BlackFriday tragedy shopping hours
and NRA ViolenceFirst! membership cards
and automated death machines
and climate sickness
in public squares
and anxious private circles
of remunerative capital despair.

Peace stories gladly integrate
ThanksGiving Days
toward peaceful everyday Advent
of new born communal princes and princesses
living healthy happily ever paradise after
integrity of war-torn story ends.


Sometimes we call PeaceStories
love stories.
I won't even try to list all the bad names
we sometimes give competing WarStories,
children are probably deeply listening,

But,
They all seem to have something sinister to do
with reducing Earth's natural fertility
to mere spiritualized manure,
toxic attitude,
definitely not centered in ultra-nonviolet gratitude
for PeaceStories
and their MultiCulturing Muses.
