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

~& again~

i am hoping to have a clear night every night, but not holding my breath!

this morning i woke to a very misty world but it soon cleared and today blue skies and the odd cloud are above us in the new forest.

so what is in store today? well off to the farm shop and as we usually do look at the plants.
fingers crossed we shall see some foals on the way. it was upsetting last week as some moron driving too fast killed one of the village donkeys. that is the downside to living here~over the years we have seen so many poor horses and cows laying at the side of the road because of the thoughtless actions of road users~have even seen them nudge horses with their cars if they are standing in the road to make them move.
will they ever stop to think this is the animals forest.

i guess another downside is the holiday makers, when i was small i remember it not being so busy but over the years i guess people want to get out of the cities and towns for a while and that is what we have to put up with living in such a beautiful area.
as is usual across the world we get good and bad tourists~the bad are ones who leave their litter and try to sit their children on the ponies and then get upset when they get bitten or kicked.

I cannot even believe some people when it comes to their driving and animals on the road. I can't even imagine what is going through their head. There are accidents and then there is just plain carelessness.

I live in a World heritage area and tourists flock here by the bus load - mostly from overseas. I hate them. they drop rubbish and don't respect this glorious land.

they should follow this: take nothing but photos and leave nothing but footprints.

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