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

~of waxing moon & new life~

its been a good time for photos here at the roundhouse and over black bridge...

the waxing moon a few nights ago, a great pale orange crescent~since then it has been cloudy each night.looking out of the window now the clouds are clearing...

the nuthatch couple~they have only recently been coming to the garden and you can imagine the excitement when we first saw them

two of the baby blue tits from our nest box, they have all continued to use our garden for food and right now are eating us out of house and home. they are joined daily by young sparrows and finches who fight something terrible!

this youngster was born two weeks ago over black bridge~i call him a 'cowboy pony'

~dont forget to click on the pictures!~

Love all the photos-but especially the first one-wow.

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