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"

~another anniversary***Tiananmen Square~

was it really twenty years ago i was watching the footage on tv and oh so hating the chinese governemnet?
yes it was and yet last night it was if all clocks had turned back and it was being re-lived.
the bbc~for once put aside their usual dreadful programming of insipid 'find a new celeb' crap and banal sitcoms and soaps to screen the journalist kate adie's return to tiananmen square.
the government tried and executed many of the protesters, others were able to flee into exile and have been unable to return and many, many people are under the watchful eye of chinas big brother...for such dreadful actions as posting a tiny newspaper article asking people to remember the Tiananmen Mothers
and today china has shut down twitter, hotmail and flickr to stop communications about the event....the trouble is they are always stopping communications if the party does not agree.
and remember that earlier this year was the 50th anniversary for the Tibetan uprising...ooop's sorry the 'peaceful liberation'........arrrrrghhhhhhhhh i could scream...what a pile of utter crap.
call me paranoid but i wonder how much chinese authorities are monitoring the channels of communication today?

20 years ago? wow, it doesn't seem that long ago...

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