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"

~wild & stormy Dorset night~

my oh my~did it howl and blow?
i went to bed after watching 'wonky willie' and the wind had just really started to pick up over that hour~i wound up my radio and tuned into radio 4 to wait for the shipping forecast~i love it, it's so relaxing!
the wind became louder and louder and the wind howled down the bedroom chimney and through the open window, my curtains billowing.
i think i slept on and off for about two hours and then just gave up and lay in the dark listening to the noise of mother nature in all her howling glory~it sounded as if we had a continuous line of trains thundering down the lane and i have to admit i did wonder how long it would be until the windows came in and once or twice the noise was so much my heart was beating like crazy.
about seven o'clock things settled down but within two hours had started up again~right now i am sitting looking out of our front window wondering how long it will be until the ariel on the cottage opposite will fall off the roof or when the telephone cables, which are swinging wildly, will fall.
out the back the big evergreens and wytch elm are leaning over at such an angle swampy is wondering whether to move pippin to a safer place down the lane.
and according to the news it will get worse this afternoon.
i am thinking of going for a short walk a bit later, even if its just ten minutes up the lane~i love the feeling of being out in such wild weather and i really feel in need of some fresh air.

Although we got soaked this morning it was quite exhilarating. The suns out now but still blowing a gale. Unfortunately got to get ready for work now, I think i'd rather watch paint dry!
Take Care on your walk.

Oh I'm so behind with all my blogging friends....so glad you posted, I was going to email you to check you were ok. At least down there you just had the wond and rain (bad enough though it is) Here a couple of weeks ago we had an EARTHQUAKE! Bad enough to wake up my son and blow 2 panes of glass out of his greenhouse!
I hate the wind when its this bad...but generally sounds worse indoors for some reason. Good for blowing away the cobwebs.
Take care sweetie,
Love Sue xxx

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