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"

thank you all you lovely folk for your comments!
What prompted me was an unintentional glimpse of the news where i was confronted by firemen facing assult when trying to do their job, the sentancing of the low-life scum (sorry readers) who killed a man for no reason and yet more low life who beat a man senseless, again for no reason.
my heart bleeds at the dreadful society this country will have if this kind of thing continues.
i am afraid i come to you still cross over more personal issues.
why is it that people join a group in order to arrange exciting things for others and yet they get nothing but grief and aggression for their time?
it's sort of like this ~ people will be your friend for the time it suits them but for the rest of the year you are ignored and not kept up to date with potentially important information, but rest assured come the time it counts again they will be your friend.
or this
people will get caught out over various things that they shouldnt be doing but instead of feeling shame they just use their previous position in order to spread lies in their favour.
so today you find me and swampy feeling quite low and dispirited. we are thinking of resigning from one of our volunter camping organising roles due to the first thing i have mentioned. we have now been giving up our free time for this for about 5 years now and think maybe its time to think of ourselves and spend the two weeks and money it costs us on a camping trip of our own, to places we have talked about visiting and yet never have due to other committments.
maybe with this cottage spring clean it is time to spring clean in other ways and finally take the plunge in doing things for us for a change.
it just makes me so cross. it gives you that 'why bother' feeling, it makes you feel resentful for all the time you have given over time that doesnt feel appreciated.
whats worse is that it has really upset swampy and of course i then get upset on his behalf...so i am doing him a nice roast for dinner tonight

This is so sad, but happens so often! I often wonder if this is just the way humans are? Take what they can get and think it is how it has to be?
I think it is good that you want to change the time in "you" time! Take care of yourselfs. have fun!
Spring cleaning and decluttering inside us is very important (and sometimes not easy at all!). Have a nice weekend!

Oh Lee,I really feel for you and Swampy,why do people have to behave like that!I've been in similar situations and it does make you feel like giving up!
When you are of a kind heart and nature some people seem to take what they can get and then turn into not very nice people to know!
Maybe it is fate telling you that it is now your time! Time to be closer and time to go to the places you both want to see,its just the same with the cottage you know it is time to clear out and declutter and to make ready for a fresh start when you get the keys to your new house!Time to move on in your lives!
As always love to you both from Kathyann and the girls

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