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 from in front of a roaring fire.
it is very, very cold in our valley, the sky a very pale grey.

very early this morning i was looking out of our kitchen window at the moon setting...it was huge and the bare branches of the trees stood out beautifully stark in the moon bright. then walking back to the bedroom i was faced with an amazing dawn, a single dark rose cloud draping the sky, surrounded by gold and pink.
after have a couple of weeks feeling so disconnected it felt as if i was being brought back to my myself.

things are looking considerably barren, most of the trees around us have now lost their leaves, just a few die hard beech leaves hanging on and brightening the bare ,brown trees and barren fields with a final blaze of copper.

i have not posted for a few days as i had to do a lot of reading for my studies. the reading has been done and tomorrow i have set aside time to sort out notes ready to draft out my assaignment. but today i am just going to enjoy the fire and read, well re-read the first of my ''Boudica' books.

today really is a day to sit and feel cosy inside

Hi Lee! I have been away over the weekend. It is good to hear that you are feeling more connected with yourself.. seems we are the yin & yang.. I am today, feeling lost and disconnected.. I will take a leaf from your life and take time tomorrow to re-connect somehow.
gee, that fire sounds inviting. *sigh*

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