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

no news...

is not good news!
so we will be remaining in our beloved dorset for a while longer; i said to swampy today it was not meant to be and it means something better is just around the corner.
so i shall wait as long as it takes and let the Goddess nurture my dreams for a while longer.
i have been dreadfully unwell, thank you for your kind thoughts, yesterday i actually spent 80% of the day in bed and today been on and off the bed with my hot water bottle.
i am poorly every month without fail but this month has been exceptional and its made me feel so miserable...i shall let you in on my secret, i am typing this from bed, propped up on pillows with a hot water bottle to my lower back.
swampy, bless him, is cooking up my favorite 'illness' food, reserved for when i feel dreadful, milky macaroni baked in the oven with nutmeg and cinnamon.
i am also fed up as my blood suger levels were 13.2 this morning, which is horribly high~but iam positive it was because i have been poorly~feeling too sick to eat so i think that may have something to do with it~golly i hope so anyway.
i know people always say things like 'oh a nice walk will make it feel better' maybe yes but when you feel too sick to even drink water i think a nice enjoyable walk is out of the question!
still i am hoping by tomorrow i will feel better and coming out the other side until next month. by then i plan to look into all manner of herbal treatments and have a good stock of fresh ginger, raspberry leaf tea and make up some nice essential oils for cramps. so any of your home remedies will be gratefully accepted.
well i shall stop here for now...i hope you are all well my blogging friends

The roundhouse is beautiful - I hope that you find a place that is just as delightful.

Coincidentally, I am having a rougher-than-usual time this month too. I hope you start feeling better soon. It's good that Swampy is taking good care of y you!

you know.. Dorset is just so perfect for you (even though i haven't been there) .. the name just suits you :)
sometimes when things happen like this, we rant and rave, kick and scream and wonder why.. but oneday.. down the track, we realize that the Goddess truly did know best xoxo

I will think on the remedies.. and am going to my favourite health food shop tomorrow... if i find anything, i will let you know

I have been sending some healing when I meditate xo

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