Hard Frost

Morning, and the trees nearly naked
and sparkling, white trunks
The fields, white crisp ponds
That which will make through
the winter already dormant
protected in the genes
That which will not, seeds
already shed, waiting
And winter near
near enough to taste
And we turn the heat up
a little
And wait, too.


Happy Birthday to my baby ~~

Who never had a birthday dinner uninterrupted by trick-or-treaters, or a birthday cake without pumpkins on it. Live long and prosper. . . .

See you on the other side of morning

Light consuming itself, balanced
Negative space, leaving the
center open
Full moon, unseen, and the
rain continues
Grandmother, whispering spells
in the corner
If there is more to this
no one's telling me

What I wanted
All I want
A hand in mine
And laughter that rhymes

No name, or face
Just a smile I know
I'll know. And a heart,
beating a bit too fast



Oh, I remember

Coming home, babe in arms,
to find you gone
A cool November day,
we left you in the ground

You comforted me once later
Now it's nearly November again
And cool. The soft sound of rain
The river rising, and I wait

The rain of fire kills
brown-skinned people far away
In my name. You would have
hated this. And are well free

You would not know your country
We have become so unkind
so unvirtuous And afraid.
Terrifically afraid.

Tonight’s full moon is the Hunter’s Moon. It’s also the closest and therefore biggest full moon of 2007.

Tonight’s moon will be about 50,000 kilometers – or 30,000 miles – closer to the Earth than 2007’s most distant and smallest full moon, last April.

This October full moon is the Hunter’s Moon for the northern hemisphere. That’s the name for the full moon following the Harvest Moon in September. This October full Hunter’s Moon comes at precisely 4:52 a.m. Universal Time Friday. For the continental U.S., that means the full moon comes this evening or around midnight Thursday night, when the moon will be shining sky high.

The New 'USRSF'

The Pentagon announced TODAY the formation of a new 500-man elite fighting unit called the United States Redneck Special Forces (USRSF)

These boys will be dropped off in Iraq and have been given only the following facts about terrorists :

1. The season opened today.
2. There is no limit.
3. They taste just like chicken.
4. They don't like beer, pickups, country music or Jesus.
5. They are directly responsible for the death of Dale Earnhardt.

The Pentagon expects the problem in Iraq to be over by Friday.

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night. . . .

They were together in the House.

Just the two of them.

It was a cold, dark, stormy night. The storm had come

Each time the thunder boomed he watched her jump.
She looked across the room and admired his strong
appearance...and wished that he would take her in his
arms, comfort her and protect her from the storm.

Suddenly, with a pop, the power went out... She screamed...
He raced to the sofa where she was cowering.
He didn't hesitate to pull her into his arms.
He knew this was a forbidden union and
expected her to pull back.

He was surprised when she didn't resist but instead clung to him.

The storm raged on...

They knew it was wrong...

Their families would never understand. So consumed
were they in their fear that they heard no opening
of doors... just the faint click of a camera......

Thanks Siege!

a fine october day

maples on fire
a fine clear bitter lime
overtakes the understory
crimson oaks flame at the
corners, the sumac runs the margins
like wildfire
skybright sunwarm windlight
heart is content
for a little

Al Gore Belongs in Jail

Dear Julie,

Al Gore should be arrested.

And I want to go with him.

I can't tell you how glad I am to see the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Gore. He has become a global warming hero, and I applaud all of his work to inform the public about the global climate catastrophe.

I was particularly impressed when I read that Al Gore "can't understand why there aren't rings of young people blocking bulldozers and preventing them from constructing coal-fired power plants."

Well, today I would like you to invite Al Gore to join me and thousands of RAN supporters November 16-17 for 24 hours of nonviolent direct action targeting the banks, Citi and Bank of America, that want to finance more than 150 new coal-fired power plants in the U.S.

But I don't just want you to ask him to show up. I want you to ask him to get arrested with me!

I want to spend a day in jail with Al Gore.

You can help. Sign the petition and tell Al Gore that you want him to get arrested, Nobel prize around his neck, for blocking the construction of coal-fired power plants.

But tell him to do it strategically.

By the time the bulldozers are on the ground, it is already too late. We need to stop these projects before they start and the best way to do that is by preventing them from being financed in the first place. The coal industry depends on Wall Street. So we're going after the industry's biggest funders: Citi and Bank of America.

What could make a bigger statement than Nobel Peace Prize-winner Al Gore following the grand tradition of Martin Luther King and Gandhi by using civil disobedience to help create a clean energy future?

Let's make it happen. Sign the petition right now!

Winning the Nobel Peace Prize is an amazing accomplishment. I am impressed and inspired. Now I hope that Al Gore will take his own advice and join us as we take a stand for the future.

Thank you,

Michael Brune
Executive Director
