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"

Hopi Prophecy

Bright Blessings

merry meet )o( to all my blogging friends today.

so we enter a time of balance and ending of our wheel of the year,where we see the darker faces of our Goddess and God, where we can give thanks for the earths abundance, where we can nurture our seeds of hopes and ideas, honour the approach of winter and prepare ourselves for the coming of samhain.

i hope you all have a joyous day however you celebrate )o(

Alison~I also have a teeny tiny Green Man that is placed in front of me in Pippin~as well as assorted holed stones and my mobile 'shrine'!!!

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