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"

~drifting and rambling thoughts~

i have been feeling so...ungrounded, drifting and unsettled.

my summer break at this time is no fun, i miss the reading, note taking, essay writing...

my wandering soul is restless to be away in pippin again...

i have not been feeling 'me'...sometimes i have what i call an identity crisis and have times where i feel so apart~i read more into the random looks of passers by than maybe i should~i joke to swampy that maybe i have a second head i was previously unaware of...but its an odd feeling.

why, i wonder do i sometimes feel so uncomfortable being the unconventional me?

i have an urge to light many incense sticks and just sit in silence and think...dream...

email me if you need someone xoxo
I too have been feeling odd, disjointed, not quite there..
I spend most of my days pretending that I live in my past life.. how sad is that.. then this century drags me back with its rushing and business.. I hate it.
I think it is time we started emailing each other - lots xoxo

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