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"

Go Greenpeace

Greenpeace are sailing to bring attention to and disrupt the japanese fleet who have set sail to murder lage numbers of humpback whales, despite their classified status as being vulnerable.

These bautiful creatures have the most amazing and complex songs that can last for hours, a good cd to get for mediatation is 'Songs from the Humpback Whale'. I bought this about twenty years ago and found it great for meditation and general relaxation. it really does transport you beyond the mundane and the thought that these amazing beings are being hunted and killed so horrifically just makes my blood boil.

is there any hope for our planet when those classified as vulnerable can be hunted?

....and as a student I bought that famous poster of the whales tail and the caption...'He roams the sea in freedom with no enemy but man'.

God(dess) speed to greenpeace, with all my heart I hope the campaign works.

Robyn has written about this too and I've already commented on her blog about how sickening I find it and how helpless I feel. I wish Greenpeace well in their efforts to disrupt this appalling slaughter - as for claiming that it is being done for scientific research - I wonder who they think they are fooling with lies like that?

I have just logged in after two days away and signed the protest ia Robyns.
I am also going to print it off and post it up to my dad to sign and sent. he has been a long time member of the whale and dolphin conservation society and has his paintings of whales exhibited at galleries.

I could cry.. the japanese whalers are just ignoring the whale sanctuary.. murderers the whole lot of them.

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