Community Greens

People of all colors discussing evergreen ideas.

We Need Voices

Fried Chicken & Philosophy

acaciaWe need voices large as the ocean
to whisper into the piled tinder
the spark will come
flame leaping from prophetic lips
stolen from self-proclaimed gods.

We need prayers righteous as half babies
alters without sacrifice
hands that help hands
regardless of regard
love as everyone.

We need a supreme seppuku
to circumcise human nature
disembowel its apex predator
leaving an Eden gardener
believing all trees have knowledge.

About Community Greens

It takes more than a village to raise a child in today's world. The world is more than flat or round or sun and moon. It's also the village on the other side of the river. The objects in the sky are different from that view. Community Greens, griot-like, tells a story. I invite you to share my view.

Green Tips!

Bee proactive!

A few things you can do to help keep bees healthy:

  • plant different flowers that bloom throughout the season for the bees;

    • native plants and other perennials

    • bloom colors of yellow, white,  blue, and purple

  • watch for neonicotinoid-free note on plant tags- some tags will claim that insecticides were used for ‘your plant’s health’ (but NOT for the bees!)

  • leave the blossoms until they expire

  • plant plants with fragrant flowers with a long bloom season

  • consider early blooming plants for bees that have had little nourishment over the winter
