Sometimes civil disobedience seeks no publicity

The Spring 2017 issue of Deep Times: A Journal of the Work That Reconnects is published. As in, open to the public. However, not all acts of resistance seek publicity. “Inside job” is one of those subtler disobediences.

The issue is here.

The poem is here.


Chestnut, elm, maple

“Chestnut, elm, maple” published in a new journal dedicated to the Great Turning, Deep Times: http://journal.workthatreconnects.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Deep-Times-Spring-2016.pdf

I am the poetry editor for the journal, and welcome your submissions of poetry on the themes evoked by the Work That Reconnects:

  • coming from gratitude,
  • honoring our pain for the world,
  • systems thinking,
  • deep time (thinking like a mountain) or the Fourth Time (past, present, and future as one),
  • deep ecology (the wisdom of honoring all life as sacred circle)
  • paticca samuppada (mutual causality, dependent co-arising, or interbeing)
  • perceptual paradigm shift,
  • our work to create new systems,
  • preserving the good and holding actions to stop destruction,
  • and how we clarify our roles as agents of the Great Turning towards a life sustaining culture.

Contact me at my name as one word at hotmail about how to submit.

(Please excuse the severity of the shortness of my parenthetical definitions!)

Here’s to a “true revolution of values” as per Dr. King!



“Corpse pose” and “Equally invisible”

The Bleeding Lion lit mag published two of Karina’s poems in its second issue: http://thebleedinglion.com/inaugural-issue-preview/issue-2/

“Corpse pose” is on pp. 54-5 and “Equally invisible” is on pp. 60-1.

Yogis will recognize savasana; followers of Joanna Macy’s work may sense how her ideas of deep time and nuclear guardianship informed “Equally invisible.”
