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"

~rats & sinking ships...~

...are the words that come to mind when i think of our government at this point in time, but i like rats, so maybe i need to find another word...

the news here in the uk has been changing faster than you can blink.

it seems everytime i turn on the news some new mp is coming up with feeble excuses for claiming stupid amounts in expenses~'i forgot i had paid off my mortage'.
oh come on, even mp's are not so wealthy they dont watch their mortage payments like a hawk and possibly even celebrate when its paid, they certainly wont forget...

or, looking at things that have been claimed for, then maybe they would.

i think there are many people here who believe that they should survive on their salary, which i am sure is fairly subtantial, and nothing more~the ordinary person in the street has to, i bet you do to.
of course they harp on about having the second home because they have to travel to london or their constituancies~well boo hoo~there are thousands and thousand of folk who have to travel miles everyday to their work and i bet they cannot claim as much, if at all in, expenses.

i thought the other day how my gramps must be rolling in his grave over this~he was a life long labour supporter from a very long line of dock workers and bargemen in portsmouth dockyard and i am sure his grandfather would have been a member of the party before they were even called the labour party.

and now the pm is having a re-shuffle~where will it all lead to?

on a totally different subject~i hope these two miscreants make some lovely, new best friends during their long, long time in prison...
