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"

~meandering again~

dia dhuit

this is the second day i have tried to settle down to my studies and instead drifted into blog land~i am again having the pulling feeling that always come upon me when i am being called to pathworking, divination, reading my cards, working with crystals or just doing some reading.

when i decide i want to do any of these it never 'works'~ it is only when i get these pullings that anything works for me and makes sense~and it is at this time i can write about my thoughts and feelings.

oh, its inside of me all the time, everyday i have thoughts and make observations that connect me with my path, but nothing i can really put into words.

i think at times people need to open out and see what others are doing, thinking, feeling across the world in order to be able to centre again~to know that others are knowing, thinking, feeling similar and that all these 'unseen' vibrations are crossing the world, following the ancient pathways to join in a great weaving of souls.

maybe thats where these pullings of mine emerge from~maybe i have a door that opens within me allowing these vibrations to join with my own and magnify them~so of course it follows that my own vibrations spread out to others.

i wonder if they flow through the open door of someone else?

I too have thoughts/ feelings/ connections each day to my path, but like you, cant always get the right frame of mind to focus. and yet, even here in blogland, there are times when i feel a deep connection with someone's words, or just with that person, sensing a mood, pain, restlessness, whatever, and feel a pull towards them, maybe thats what you are saying lee, that some people are attuned?
