Premium Member To Free The World
I heard today
a corporate goal
"To free the world of cancer."

What I heard, instead,
"To free the Earth of human toxic nature."

Often rooted
in feelings of not belonging,
not being good enough,
not even fitting in sufficiently,
too toxic,
too loudly aggressive 
and/or quietly sinister
to be known...Read More

The Infernal Serpent
coiled ’round the soul of man
strangles the love and understanding
imbued by the Creator 
supplanting it with hatred and distrust.

Premium Member Sacred Metaphor
Sacred music and liturgies
are not merely leaves and flowers
produced by complex and richly branched
and sub-branched analogies
between ecological and theological root metaphors
of co-arising nurture;
between naturaLeft and spiritualRight co-experience
of Earth's spiraling revolutionary nutrition;
East to West horizoned 
healthy light intention.

Each regeneration absorbing fertile...Read More

I wonder if THC
and our Holy Cooperative Spirit
could be cousins
like Grandmother Moon
and Grandmother Tree.

Why do you want to wonder 
about something as curious as that,

Oh, I don't recall, really.
It just came up in conversation a few minutes ago.

My litmus test question
for supreme and more everyday justice makers
organic bakers
RealTime fakers:

Have you read research results
comparing retributive justice unhealthy outcomes
to those of good-faith restorative
justice processes?
Repairing green reparations
rather than locking up long-held repressive sexist lies
and throwing away liberty's dwindling healthy discernment...Read More

Premium Member Seeds Planted in the Receiving Unforgiving Ground

It's six days since
the Hole was dug...

First frost clings now
to newly turned earth,
to shunted sod,
to stones, to pebbles.

A grave grows colder
today than yet it's been...
Hearts grow busy, too.
Supplanting last images
with happier ones. 
The heart and mind curate
a story to tell...Read More

Whenever I...

I feel..a tender warmth, 
consoling my pain, as, 
your compassionate heart

from the bane, 
of my fractured state.

Premium Member Forgotten Fears
Betrayal indelibly alters fate
giving a new definition to loss.
For a storm of pent up fear is unleashed
as wishes and disappointment crisscross.

Feelings drift in a stupor of despair
where pledges of love hold little meaning.
For liars consistently feign feelings
seducing trusting hearts with...Read More

Premium Member Mom's Economics 840
Listen my children 
and you shall hear
of the midnight ride
speeding greed will steer.

Just as our cooperative economy
is fueled by gratitude,
our competitive WinLose economy
is fueled by greed.

Other parallel points of contrast
ecologically and logically follow
in their own sweet and sour time.

Premium Member Cleaning House
If cleanliness
thrives next to godliness,
could wealthy White Houses,
slick and in their capital-sucking groove,
survive when paired with homelessness?

This question presupposes
perhaps a radical view
that divine powers are more homeless
than secured behind military-industrialized,
greed capitalized,
plutocratic White Houses.

Is your god's aspirations
toward Earth's homeless sustainable revolution,

Summer Sunset
Sequestered from mundane oration
Until this spell from Earth’s rotation
Meanders from my frozen gaze.
Melting clouds in pastel plush,
Evanescent waning rays,
Recant my vision’s wanderlust.

Slivered shards of ruby hues,
Unflinching wisps of reddish blues,
Nuanced haze in wafting threads,
Supplanting twilight’s blushing gray.
Eventually dusk’s blanket spreads;

In the quiet he sleeps
Darkness abides save flickering candle light

Leaning close to steal his breath

Mountain band descends from minarets of Waziristan
To stem red tide, bleaching life-force over pristine home spanned
