In Our Distant 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 **** 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 green old as new deal Circles.
