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

In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.

merry meet

after some glorious moon gazing last night i have been feeling progressively introspective as the day has passed.

i am slowing down more and more as we approach Samhain, seed fall, the begining of the old Celtic new year; my energy, like our earth's, is withdrawing and i have a need for peace and within this peace to begin a time of reflection and renewal of purpose. we are coming to a time where our land reflects ourselves...buring all that is dead...culminating with yule, the time of greatest darkness when we light candles to the return of the light.
there are things/times/places that i will leave behind forever at this time. what has happened in the past is not important and goes against my feelings of change and renewal...how can i do this when i am being held back...it is time to bury and renew.

love this post - I love the way that each year we get to leave things behind that no longer serve us... and if we struggle with letting go.... we can try again next year..
however - Beltane coming up for me... must look into that..still learning :)

Ah miss*r, Beltain...shoots show...the joining of Goddess and God, new life and the renewal of our earth :)


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