The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

merry meet my luvvers )o(

joy of joy's~my wheat gluten has arrived so i can whip up some veggie goodness to take away with me.
i have been having a minor breakdown because swampys teenaged daughter, boyfriend and friend are going to be with us at vanfest, in a tent 'next door'~ so its extra cooking for me as i am the only veggie. still keeping it simple...they better like beans on toast!!! i am however making a veggie bolognese and ooppp's forget to mention its made with veggie mince~under the taste of tomato and cheese i am quite sure they wont notice!
still a busy day and i need to fit in an hour for swampy to cover me in henna~i am a natural red head as you know but i do like to push it that bit further! if i am feeling particularly brave i may put up a real picture at some point.

anyway thats it until later...things to sort and pack

Oh Alison you wont regret getting one of al's pictures~we have quite a few gained over the years, at the last count we have 8~I did also direct him to your blog too! But we have known Al for about 8 years now and sometimes do a bit of bartering~redecoration of kitchen=a bread machine sort of thing!

All things share the same breath~the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
