freestyle sonnet #080: BUILDING SANCTUARY AGAINST ABSTRACT MATH

(The Bird Tribe - meaning my family - currently got a GoFundMe going to try and purchase the land surrounding our compound, to work into the compound and make a plant sanctuary for my ol' lady's herbal practice, and an extension of my illegitimate arts, and also to keep from being broken into tiny plots of power gridlock. Please visit the page, and drop five on it if you can.)

Manmade math mostly builds off abstract foundation,
thus land lacks value unless fractured/fragmented
into parts and parcels - complex exploitation
of raw (wild) into refined (planned), represented

by bank's co-sign to development but never
to leave alone. And yet land (Earth) best left alone
helps those broken by subtraction or dissever
from Earth, who also have no abstract value known

(thus "broke" as well), to reconnect with larger whole,
and hopefully find wholesome larger than any
lump sum. The biosphere's not pieces to control,
but intertwined place where peace is - vast and plenty,

for those working to cultivate sanctuary,
(while manmade divisions work to the contrary).
