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 on a gloriously blue dorset day.in fact its been such a day i cannot even begin to describe it, but the most noticeable thing is the slight chill in the air, when i was out in the back yard looking at my black eyed susans...still hanging on! i could feel the chill settling down. the sun has now set behind the wytch elm and the views across to the top road are bathed pink and the air coming in the window next to me is slightly more chill than earlier.
i am feeling more than ever, in fact its getting stronger as the month progresses,the dieing back of our pagan year as we approach samhain. but at the same time the celebration of the complete turning of our wheel and the celebration of a new year~the excitement of yule to follow and then the returning light.

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