DAVID HONISH      1955 - 2007        

"Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity.
But silence is impossible.
Silence screams.
Silence is a message,
just as doing nothing is an act.
Let who you are ring out & resonate
in every word & every deed.
Yes, become who you are.
There's no sidestepping your own being
or your own responsibility.
What you do is who you are.
You are your own comeuppance.
You become your own message.
You are the message."

In the Spirit of Crazy Horse
---Leonard Peltier


The Henge Stones

Atte Nytte
They Walke
Ye did not noe
That they could goe
They talke
And nod theyr grizl'd heddes
Leav theyr mossie beddes
To whisper auntient Lore
While the Moone flees from the Shore
And Darknesse reigns as afore.

Thei maun't be seene
By Mortal Eie;
'Tis Death to spie;
But whan the Sunne
Hath his Race begun
Thei silent falle
Stand stille and tall
Agaynst the Skie
None noweth why;
Theyr Silence thei doe keepe;
Whilst we wax wide awake

umerous Stone Circles are seen thruout the British Isles and Europe.
Many are in danger from encroaching "development", roads and industry.
The word "henge" in Anglo-Saxon, means "hanging", referring
evidently to the Lintel stones of Stonehenge. "Hanging Stones".
The word was mistakenly used by archeologists, however,
to apply to any ancient Stone Circle; hence, in
the Modern meaning of the word, "henge" means "stone circle".
If you have any trouble with the spelling of the poem,
just sound the words out loud! BmT]

Birthday April 20, 1936  
About Me Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I like The Classics and feel a little strange in the modern world. I am a product of a basically European education, plus the radicalism of the Early Left, and the utopian hopes of the Flower Child '60's. Now I'm detached and cynical about it ALL. But still, havin' fun and looking forward to each new day!

Political Leaning Very Liberal
Wild Fact About Me Often I feel I can sense future events in the world -- and they happen as I predicted.
My Philosophy Live and let live, tell the truth, go by the Golden Rule, Speak Truth to Power
What Gives Me Hope We ain't none of us gonna get out of here alive. So enjoy! People do things that are just AMAZING!
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I'd set up free clinics for spaying and neutering cats and dogs, free to the entire public at ALL times, to deal with pet overpopulation;
and, I would put FREE dispensers for condoms in ALL public restrooms, men's rooms and women's rooms, to deal with the AIDS crisis as well as human overpopulation. I would also put in FREE dispensers for the "morning-after pill". I would fund these by a special sales tax on Viagra and similar drugs! Put these in ALL public restrooms in hotels, motels, gas stations, restaurants, colleges, high schools, etc.etc. Along with Sex Education pamphlets, also from FREE dispensers. Cut unwanted pregnancies, STDs, and the need for abortion services. Save the State LOTS of money. Set an example to the rest of the world!
What/who changed my life and why Most recently [I've had a long life], Poetsagainstthewar started by Sam Hamill, that started ME writing poetry and now that's important to me. Earlier, having a child; earlier, meeting an Anarchist at the college I went to; earlier, going off to college; earlier, coming across the works of Shakespeare when I was 14, and despairing.
Quotation First they ignore you; then they laugh at you; then they attack you; then you win.

    Like the message of the "Release" Tarot card on my page, I am moving on from Care2....where there was love, light, and peace.....there is only toxic outrage and unrelenting hate...not a good place for my heart and soul now.   You are and forever will be a treasured friend and a part of my heart and soul.Related image
