In the Forest*

2020 Merit Award
By Miakoda Baughman, Grade 3

When the Mountain glows
And the River shines
And the trees speak to me
In the forest
There is magic
Everywhere
In the forest
With me

I think the moon is watching
Over me
And the sun shines
With me

In the forest
With me
I think the spirit
Is watching
Over me

MORE LIGHT

December 12, 2019

For the season, the holidays, the year ahead, more light.
J.I. Kleinberg

weather permitting…

February 12, 2019

With so much surprising winter weather and so many cancellations, plans for Sunday in Bellingham has to carry a caveat: weather permitting.

Should the season allow, Bruna Press & Archive, in Bellingham, will offer an afternoon session on Sunday, February 17, 2019, Noon to 3:30pm. DO IT YOURSELF: Zines + Artist Made Publications is a series of workshops and conversations by four local artists, publishers, and community organizers centered around their methods and practices of independent publishing. Each participant — Rosie Lockie, Andrew Molitor, Cullen Beckhorn, and Bailey Cheney — will speak for 30 minutes, sharing their work and perspectives with attendees.

The same evening, Bruna will also host Coast Salish Concepts of Time + Space, the next in its ongoing series of monthly full moon gatherings that explore and introduce seasonal moons, the gathering of foods, and some of the ideas and values that sustain First Nations Coast Salish peoples. The gathering is led by Lummi Elder, William John, X’welwelat’se.

Keep an eye on the website or Facebook page, or follow Bruna Press on Twitter for updates on events… and weather.

The
Moon floating like a big
Circle
Firework
Waiting for
Someone
To
Light the
Fuse but
It waits and waits

The Moon*
By Madeline Bowler, Kindergarten

The Moon sits on the sky.
Looks down at the Kids Playing
Before they go in.

My Neighbor Knocking*

By Jeremy Voigt
2006 Walk Award
Placard design by Egress Studio
What else can get one up at night
than tire squeals and shouts, my
neighbor knocking, cars spinning
by trees planted in memory of a
grandmother? Then, standing out-
side, half naked, helping the man
right his scooter, glancing at fading
taillights, I realize I did not plant
these trees, that was another house,
another place. This man is unhurt
and the bark of the tree is shaved
raw from the collision and bits
of moisture rise on the white surface
visible in streetlight and the light
the moon between her house and mine.
