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


~yesterday was Bloomsday~

when james joyce fans recreate Bloomsday, the fictitious day at the centre of "Ulysses" when fans of james joyce dress in 1904 style, attend readings and celebrate at various venues from the book.

my 'yesterday' was somewhat less exciting!

~i had some sky blue gingham arrive which i am using to finally finish off my custom book/dvd/cd shelves.
~we incorporated our trip to the farm shop with buying curtain poles~we were kindly given enough fabric to make curtains for every window (some rooms still have no curtains!) and as swampys niece is coming to stay soon we thought it was about time we spent some time getting the house and not the garden up together.
~swampy gave my 1966 singer sewing machine a good service and put up one curtain pole.
~i did not get my books out at all.

so today i am going to have to spend a big chunk of today on my studies, if not i will have to take my books away camping next week.

Well I think your day sounds much more interesting. I know I'm a philistine but I've tried to read Ulysses on several occasions and found it hard going. I did enjoy Dubliners though so can I be excused :)
