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"

Hopi Prophecy

~catch up & contemplation~

i have been tied up with my latest essay on medieval history and what with my laptop deciding to crash i have been all a muddle and out of sorts.
today however, with breaks in between to enjoy the sunshine (we have had the most glorious day here in the new forest!) i have pretty much done a good 95% of my work~i just need to spend tomorrow getting it tidy.

i have actually been really tired and exhausted for about for days so not even had the energy and inclination to sit at my lap top, today however i am feeling brighter.

i think last week was difficult as i had what i call my diabetes 'MOT' and it could have been a lot better, then i had to go with swampy to the dentist where he had a crown removed, only for the dentist to find an abscess under the crown so he took out the rest of the tooth, then on the strength of my MOT i was summoned to my doctor for a 'diabetes review' which ended up with an increase in my medication and being told i am anaemic and so now have to take tablets for that.

so all in all it was a stressful week and my m.e does not deal well with stress!!!
so i promise that at some point this week i shall come by your blog for a visit!

I'm not surprised that you are feeling tired after all that! Bet Swampy doesn't feel so hot either with an abcess and tooth removal. Let's hope this week is an improvement :)

Hope you're both feeling better now. You might want to try making your own anaemia tonic out of nettles and see how it helps. I've put the recipe on my blog - Christopher Hedley's iron tonic. It tastes a lot better than the iron tablets and doesn't make you constipated or have terrible breath! You could trying using fresh chickweed in your salad daily or in sandwiches for extra vitamin C

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