Within Earth's Time

Written by: Gerald Dillenbeck

Within timeless scales of Earth,
a humane life is no more
yet no less
than one short ZeroSum Zone,
sometimes cooperative with Earth's climate changes
and sometimes competitive
against Earth's pace
of healthy climate therapeutic race.

Each of us is a sojourner
on this green-blue sanctuary planet,
a sometimes grateful
and too often ungrateful guest
by birthright of nondual dark DNA invitation,
patriarchal and matriarchal,
with only a short-term Left wins when Right wins time
to co-invest toward healthiest interdependent wealth.

What greater folly could there be
than to spend this short time longing,
unhappily thronging,
in Win/Lose conflicts
against other green sanctuary guests?

Far healthier, surely,
to invest and empower this short life
pursuing inspired health,
enriched by a green ecotherapeutic sense
of interdependent
organic
holonic HolySpirit/Nature transubstantiating warm-wombed connections,
nutritional communion with other medicating meditating sojourners
especially green young-born seeds
breathing in and out
Win/Win active and responsive hope.

So far,
of the revolutionary 2020 revisionary centuries,
just under a full-score have degenerated,
the major integrative portion is yet to systemically unfold
among us,
with and without becoming regenerative us.

Green sanctuary compassion
is my actively co-arising hope.
This is our emergent century of climate peace,
a century of bicameral health discernment--
a wealthy skill-set sharing century
when a more caring
scientific LeftBrain
and reconnecting RightBrain co-relational investment
and compassionate
non-violent communicating
communion of human nature-spirits
will re-emerge.

This is my non-sectarian reweaving
tribal prayer
for Earth's wellness

As our own shared security,
non-violent prosperity
non-partisan compassion
non-patriarchal love
non-RightWing dominant
choosing lifetime of great healthy transitional sojourner light

Even a growing warm-wombed infant
can interdependently actively hope to harmonically hear,
smell and taste,
feel and 2020 see
health raging between Earth's global co-passioned eyes.
