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"

~balloon wake up~

while we were away last weekend a balloon on its flight from glastonbury, about 7 miles away landed in the field we were camped in~i was reading harry potter with my morning lemon tea and could hear a very odd sound coming in the window...it happened three times until i finally caught up with the sound and poking my head out saw a balloon had came to land at the end of the field.

luckily our friend sean, camped next to us was a bit more on the ball and took the following photos!

I had a similar experience when i lived in New Hampshire. I was in my house and kept hearing those noises when I caught a glimpse of a balloon out the window. I excitedly ran outside to check it out only to find over 20 of hotair ballooons flying over the neighborhood! I followed them with my camera where they landed at a local park. Quite the surprise for an average day!

Wow, that must have been something, they are so big !!!!

I just wanted to let you know that I have wondered around and have stumbled upon a secret meadow. You can find me there when you click my name. Hope to see you there ; )
Have a great weekend !!

I saw this same balloon again this morning SD, high above my woods, but low enough for me to see the colours this time1 it must be local pleasure flights :-)

Is that your bus?

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