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"

*marking my moleskine*

i started writing in my moleskine~throughout my love affair with notebooks i have always been loath to write in them, to mark the lovely clean pages.
but i did it, i started...

and still i spend time~probably too much time~what is wrong with me?!~pondering as to what i will put in it, in what ways will i mark it?

as always i think of the altered garden book that janet over at the lavender loft was given.
i just love the idea of this and it makes me think that in a hundred years time someone finds my book and opens it up
~what will they find?~

Hello. Just a little question, you know when you had swine flu did you get bad stomach and back pains? i have that and i feel like i'm on fire and i can't sleep one iota. I have a fear of doctors and i want to be very sure before i have to contact one. Sorry to bother you.

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