Premium Member Democracy On Fire
In "On Fire"
Naomi Klein reminds us
win/lose capitalism invites a cooperative action vacuum
and abhors restrictions on money-accumulating freedom,

But Earth,
healthy global climates,
wealthy ecosystems
invite regenerative win/win climax
of cooperatively nurturing health systems
and abhor inhumane definitions of "wealth"
as privately-held and autonomously sequestered currency
natural resources
human resources

Twas the night before Christmas - came like a flash,
Mob of gingerbread reindeer prodding elves for cache.

The Clausman reigning, doling out orders this stint.
Lady of his, keeps his tongue supplied with peppermints.

The vainglorious list of children, like snow through the...Read More

Premium Member Timely Death of a Muse
My muse died today.
Although how could I lose
or amuse
what was never mine to use
as I see fit,
hear fitness,
feel fitfully?

This muse dies tonight
not from old age
as I had long predicted
must be my sad and unread case,
but for a new voice
or vice,
for...Read More

Premium Member Life Spent

Life spent in lonely voyages of self
a solitary love of ebbs and flows
lies longing for the loss of inner wealth
await the distant tide of westward blows

Clinched fingers fail to grasp forever’s pall
slow filtering time’s sands cannot forget
lest pain usurp the...Read More

Premium Member I Love Advice
Advice came out her ying-yang.
Advice came out her pores.
Advice saturated her arms and legs.
Advice that most abhors.

We saw her in the grocery,
We saw her buy her cloves.
We averted our eyes and
We ran away in droves.

She appealed to children
Brought them candy...Read More

Premium Member Colour of My Heart
Now brown, the once-blue brook meanders down
To dams where sludge has chased beavers away
As species die, our Mother casts a frown
For Nature can’t control man or his way

From fracking, tapping minerals, she groans
She coughs, red lava spews from Mother’s pores

Monotheistic loyalty

The Tangled Flower Garden

The garden so meticulously planted, 
Enriched with mulch carefully proportioned;
Pleasure’s the eye with color and assortment,
Resorts to chaos when left unattended.
Nature abhors the hand’s uniformity, 
Demanding a mess of the plurality.
Each species struggles for dominance,

It is my habit I cannot hate

Sambhavami yugé, yugé, says the Gita: 
God will come back again and again.
What for?
Of course to protect the virtuous 
And destroy the evil doers.

That’s what 'The Second Coming’ means, too.

Premium Member Stable Diversity
Nature loves diversity
just as air abhors a vacuum.

Stability lives in staged apposition with diversity
as Yang predicts Yin,
as time moving stably forward
predicts time imagined more diversely
as the history of regeneratively slow-evolving Earth.

Stability, without conjoining diversity,
is a highly subjective attribution
when blanketed across...Read More

Now Currently Called
Graven images are currently called
Stone figurines erected by man,
built to carry his memory throughout all generations

they are an affront to His holy, infinite nature

Clean living
Nature abhors a vacuum.
It seems so do the kids.
Tumbleweeds roll through the room
On marks from soiled shoe skids.

You're home all day,  you have no job.
Maybe try stepping up.
I earn my way, I'm not a slob.
Don't let the clothes pile-up.

Our beloved circle
Thou travel a path of uncertainty
For an observer, thou seem straight
But nothing appears as it seems
For thou portrays a flawless path
Eschewing real travails
Yet enclosed within, is a vacuum
Contradicting thou great virtue
Bringing forth her deceit in diversity
But nature abhors...Read More
