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"

~one step closer~

well i had my final essay grade today and i was really pleased to get yet another 'b'~cue streamers and much cheering~however i have to wait for the results of my exam which i hope wont be too far in the distance and is the deciding factor of whether i pass or not~fingers crossed folks!

i couldnt sleep last night because of assorted aches,pains and 'washing machine head', i was still awake to hear the first of the birds greeting the dawn, so spent some of that time not only planning camping menu's but working out the credits for my degree~i realized that if i pass this module and the next three then i am almost half way to the degree! its a nice thought that with each essay i am creeping one step closer to my dream.

well we are off camping again tomorrow, until sunday, for the club agm and i hope the weather stays nice for star gazing and to see the first slither of the waxing moon~especially if i find i cant sleep again. it tends to go in phases, i cant sleep properly for several nights then sleep the sleep of the dead until the next phase...

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