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"

what a day of sheer nothingness

i woke up with such good intentions, get my books out and get in a good day of study

did i?

did i heck!

oh i made lunch, made numerous cups of tea, fed cody, spoke to mum and then dad on the phone, e-mailed my friend carp, thought about doing lots of things, but only thought about it...but nothing...significant-life shattering-world changing.

i hate days like this.

is it that old dark moon introspection?
i do feel like i have shut down with my mind hardly functioning, almost like it is going into hibernation, storing up energy until the new moon and the start of new undertakings?

i suppose we are all allowed days like this~we cant spend everyday in a flurry, with things to say, things to do...

I had one of these on Saturday, sometimes you need to just do nothing.

mate? are you ok?
Funny thing is, I feel quite energised at the moment,quite the opposite, not really aligned with the moon and its cycle.
Maybe i am a 'Lunatic' though?

You are TOTALLY allowed days like that. Days to rest, relax and do nothing! You might hate them, BUT they serve a purpose I think, relax and rejuvenate! ;)

Ha, I have just blogged about exactly this Laoi. I've been meaning to point you to my 'other blog' you know...the secret one ;-)
If you get the chance pop over and see...you weren't alone in your driftiness.

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