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"

so we say goodbye to 2007 and welcome in 2008.

although some of us celebrated the new year a while back now i feel that we are caught up in the excitement that is surrounding the world at this time in a constant circle~the excitement of those who have already celebrated mixing with those still waiting.

the year has been a mixed one and i send out blessings to you all this night and hope you have a fruitful 2008.

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