Sighed Earth's River
I heard a new term today,
slow sighed Earth's River,
I have become flowingly familiar
with cognitive intelligence,
before that emotional intelligence,
before that contextual intelligence,
similar to climate intelligence
throughout life's tributaries,
and root well-springs.
My waters do not claim these are strengths;
more familiar as effluent opportunities
for further flowing affluent redevelopment.
just as I am not entirely clear
where emotional awareness ends
and environmental noticing begins,
where might Earth's physical context end
and sacred Spirit's awareness transcend signs
sighs slowly heard?
rooted in my ego-centering experience,
if feelings flow toward ego inside wet identity
as contextual warm intelligence
ebbs from eco-outside co-investment;
If eco-political context,
empowering and disempowering
natural flowing energies,
baptizes with awe and wonder
spiritual intelligence of universal individuation,
co-arising heart-felt rhythms,
surfing choices up and non-chosen down,
while frowns heavily crown
Polypathic signing language,
polyculture flowing systems,
unveiling metaphoric Spirits,
Secular ecological purpose
compelling sacred theological meaning
and flowing down.
