Now What Did You Do

What did you do
once you knew?
We have competition
and cooperation cultures
in dynamic tension

What did you cooperatively do
once you knew?
Green ecosystemic student teachers
asked our healthiest remaining grandparents

How did you consecrate cooperative ownership
and mutually managed
robust water systems?
Aquamarine baptismal oceans,
turquoise feasting algae
lakes and rivers
and glacier-fed laughing streams,
refrozen windblown tundra
recapping ice-cloud dipolarities

How did you repurpose gutted urban concrete
of toxic violent EarthMother extractions?

How did you learn to restore nutritional soil values
for growing healthy edible forests?
Meadows
Yang mountains
and Yin-lit flowing resonant rivers
resilient twilight recycling water
fluid as sacred Time our sleek rebirthing selves

How did you retain your energy
for positive ecological
and healthy economic
and wealthy political cooperative democracy?
Avoiding Never Again rhetoric
Hit Back retribution
Neglect first prize for sacred/secular restorations

When did holy waters teach you
deep and rich rhetorical events
have therapeutic cultural-flow outcomes?
Resistance builds cooperative resilience

What did you Energy Democracy do
Once we cooperatively owned
and network-managed EarthSpace?
Energy flowing through secular Ego
and back toward sacred EcoPlace,
original nature/spirit intent

What did you do when you knew
To Dream Green?
To Live Green ReFormed
To Vote SacredGreen

How did you reform
Deep EnergyDemocracy EcoSchools
for green and civil and grateful
public/private WinWin services?
Bodhisattva and/or EcoMessianic
health care giving while receiving
resilient green hiking boot and booty training camps,
sponsored by GreenPeace ReForesting Resonant Corporations
made of non-violent communication

When did your Free EcoVillage PeaceSchool Mayors
actively collude with WinWin green student teachers
And ego/ecotherapeutic Superintendents
for deep secular/sacred educational wealth,
And principals and principles
And cooperative health-policy co-investing parents
And children
red-blood XY weak
And green YY strong

How did you repurpose LeftBrain RightWing dominance
Once you remembered RightMind LeftWild polypathic freedom
for polyphonic song and dance,
liturgical soul and blues
comedy and jazz improvisations
on what have we done
on our journey 
this far into Time regenerate selves.

What did you do
when you knew
time and water and fluid you?
