resilience and resonance,

Her still serene body was pulled out of the water,
She had been a sister and a lovely daughter
Her face was scarred and her soul was subject to slaughter....when the sun shone and weather grew hotter

It was a bright beautiful summer...Read More

Premium Member Suicide of Speech
I'm so tired to speak,
so words remain asleep

it's a suicide of speech.

There is so much to say.
I fight silent soldiers of suppression -
terrorising like hisses from snakes.

Fragile expressions become
a potpourri of poisoned petals -
melting like snow hit by sunshine

it's a...Read More

Freedom of speech
is less about freedom from suppression
when more about freedom toward mutual dialogue,
cooperatively held impression
to co-invest in active democratic hope.

as Second Amendment rights to bear violent arms

Lost and Found
birth begot obsidian night
myself grew blind to dawning light
eclipse shrouded and buried sight
twilight descended ushering spite

terror resides inside as guilt
behind the walls suppression built
crumbling walls fall the tables' tilt
foundations fallen are not rebuilt 

challenges to climb are stepping-stones
conquered peaks strengthen...Read More

Premium Member NonProfit CoOperatism
An important truth of non-profit cooperatism,
as contrasted with for-profit corporatism,
is democratic wisdom
of co-investing capital and equity and interdependence,
giving from a healthy egalitarian heart
is also receiving a wealthier, more resilient, bilateral mind,
mind and body fullness,
ego- and eco-therapeutic resonance.

While true of all...Read More

Love Letter From The Soul XLV

it's the eyes that draw me in
subtlety seductive
with a hint of fear
but freshly lit and duty free
there's no denying
a night time dream of deference
where drips of desire  
tumble down  
her dainty cheek
no torture,  no suppression,...Read More

Premium Member Not That You Asked
Not that you asked,
or ever would feel free to inquire,
yet perhaps you grow ready to listen
to a voice inviting exit
from your,
and our,
long loneliness,
isolation so shelled-over,
so embedded,
you are sure we are each and all
unredeemably alone

In our envy of others,
the positive deviants

Premium Member Intellectual Snobbery
When I was in grade school
I was, already, 
on my leftbrain dominant path
toward acting the intellectual snob.

This, in large part
my best offense,
my trump card, sadly,
against marginalizing prejudice
of our community's non-farmer economic
and political Elite;

The few kids
whose parents went to college

I am a right-brain prominent writer
which must not be confused with
a prominent left-brain writer,
which I am almost decidedly not
nor would I aspire
toward such all or nothing thinking

I feel more like the muses of...Read More

Premium Member Power Is Personal
So, is this personification
of political systems?
asked the organic ecologist.

Or politicization
of intimately
yet transcendently
secular and sacred
personal economic-nutritional analysis
of health-wealth trends?
asked the macrosystemic economist,
in his rather too long projecting way
of exploring means
and medians
and in-betweens.

And both?
asked the theologian
after listening to each as Other,

Premium Member Terms and Conditions
In a social society,
where I'm not a priority.
I'm sick and tired of being strong,
when they only see me as wrong

I never read the terms and conditions,
so I'm mute, like forgotten musicians.
Misplaced in a place I do not belong

Some issues,
some opportunities,
are written across great Western and Eastern cultures,
Northern and Southern economies,
Left and Right hemisphere structured minds,
breathing out- and in-forming lungs,
beating in- and then out-flowing hearts.

This house, this house is a sad house,

Living in melancholy here and ever after.

Fly Free Nightingale
Locked within a golden cage
Kept under lock and key
Cloaked with a dark veil
To hide me from the world
Kept in the darkness
In this cold prison.

Under watchful eyes
Gazes cold as ice
As I remain silent
Frightened to move
One false step
Would be my doom.

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
