Earth Day's Easter Dawn
The one who spots the line
before spotting the bait
is the ultimate winner in life.
Rumi (Maryam Mafi translation)
The ones who spot Earth Day's decomposing line
before spotting Easter morning's ReGenesis bait
are our mutual messiahs in full living.
Each dawn reincarnates Earth Day
as Easter morning's karmic revolution.
Eastern minds dream of humane fleeing flying,
too often frying, frogs
while Western brains cooperatively
swim through red sky warnings
regenerating Western red horizons
fading full-moon Yin
to more simply rest in NOW
and dream of mutually mentoring messiahs'
of Polycultured Tao,
fractured Frog Princes croaking songs
for long-strung graceful Princess ovations
recreating East-West harmonies
for NorthWinter through SouthSummer
weathering Earth Day Opera.
Red sky Earth Days
green horizon Easter Genesis.
