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"

~many thanks~

such a lovely way to come home from my adventures~logging on and finding all of your lovely comments~so thank you all so much!
its lovely to know that my little area of blog-land is visited when i am away.
over the next few days i shall work my round to come visit you all, i promise.
well i was up really early this morning~4.30, swampy had stayed up to watch baseball and came to bed shortly before dawn, waking me up although i know he was trying to be ever so quiet.
of course once i was awake i had, what my occupational therapist at the m.e support group i used to attend called 'washing-machine head'~where you lie awake and your mind is so full of different thoughts and ideas you cant do anything but lie there and take it~i am sure you know what i mean!
so i decided to get up, make a mug of lemon tea and come and post here~i have a lot on my mind right now, but more of that later!
our trip away was so exciting! swampy took himself and cody off to the malverns for a few days while sam and i had our adventure.
i had not been to london for over ten years and was somewhat overwhelmed by the amount of people and noise~i don't think either of us particularly enjoyed travel by tube~we are both country girls to the core!
we stayed in kensington and exploring on thursday afternoon discovered the huge 'whole foods market' just around the corner from our hotel~well loving anything new and different we ended up spending quite some time there, deciding we preferred it to Harrods food hall~very busy, we saw gordon ramsey filming by the sea food counter and i much preferred the old tiles decorating the hall!
i bought nothing in harrods but i treated myself at the whole food market and bought two bars of soap made by Simply Soaps-compostable wrappers! a jute shopper and a box of Celsestial Seasons chai tea bags~yes for me that really is splashing out! (and i have to say the soap is cheaper at the whole food market than the website~not quite sure how that happens!)
wimbledon was a huge experience.
once there we found ourselves a table on 'henman hill' where we had our lunch before exploring and finally making our way to our seats on centre court~anyone who watches wimbledon will know the top levels of the seating are under a canopy, that was where we were-facing the umpires chair and level with the base line~we took plenty of photos and i will load them to photobucket soon and put a link here.
on that note i shall stop here...
