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

~being a peaceful warrior~

the battersea shield

while over at suzie's i was struck by her latest post 'tapping into positive warrior energy'.

a similar thing had been on my mind the other day when i wrote in my moleskine at bedtime, on the day of the full moon, when i had drawn 'holly' from my green man oracle...these are the short paragraphs i had written...

'strong protection
clear wisdom and courage
dream magic

'guarding against short-tempered or angry elementals.
temper our passions and channel them into useful action-the way of peaceful warriors-using skill and strength to combat negative acts'

'not to use energy too quickly'

'to be a peaceful warrior-i love the thought of that-being a peaceful warrior'

so what do i make of this today?

i guess right now there is a lot a negative energy around me, not coming from me but from someone close at hand. a negative energy that is upsetting me and those around me.
i know i need to channel these feelings into something positive and useful~but how?

I have an inkling....;)

Just, FYI, I can't *comment* on the other...it's restricted to team members....?

It's a lovely concept..~peaceful warrior~...it nicely combines the two, usually-conflicting aspects of my Self..:) Nice to know I'm not completely mad...*grin*

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