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

~pannage & a waxing moon~

a week started with making revision notes and having a panic about how much i will remember come exam day!

i have been taking all of your comments about my family problems to heart~thank you so much for them;to have so much support from people who i have never met but feel a connection to is wonderful~so thank you again (solstice spreads round some hugs)

the weather here has been wonderfully autumnal and walking with cody the other morning we met my mum rushing up the road on her way to our house with news~pannage season has arrived and as she walked down the road from her house she passed a pig with about 6 piglets busy eating all the fallen acorns!
of course we had to go and see them, which confused cody as he was expecting to cross the road onto the open forest and have his lead taken off.
we found them five minutes up the road~busy rooting in the leaves, holding up the traffic as they cris-crossed the road with the excitement of all those acorns. although the bt man kneeling down at his work looked a bit worried when the sow decided to investigate him~she was taller than he was crouched on the floor among the leaves.
swampy took some photos on his phone so i have shouted through to him to e-mail them so i can share them with you~so watch this space!

we have the waxing moon to enjoy this week, a time of positive change and good luck, new beginnings...what positive change will you be embracing at this time?

we have a chap coming to see pippin on saturday.

we put up an ad on a classic car website, not expecting that we would have any interest~he phoned two days after it went online and is so keen he sent us a £100 retainer.
i did suggest to swampy that he sent him some more photos, ones he could enlarge so he had a better idea of what he is coming to see...he is coming 120 miles after all. well the photos were sent and he is as keen as ever~so we may have some lingering waxing moon luck...

we have been a bit naughty (and over excitable at the thought of a new project) and been looking at candidates for our new camper already~we have narrowed our choice down to two makes, either a VW or a Mercedes and the absolute 'must have' list includes it must be a long wheel base, have heating (which we dont have right now!), power steering, three front seats and diesel (so we can convert it to run on vegetable oil~yes it can be done!). i have been even naughtier, found some measurments and planned the interior~think rustic log cabin on wheels and you get the picture!

well the clock is ticking, it is getting darker and its nearly time for my dinner.

*~have a wonderful day/evening~*

Oh that pannage thing is just the COOLEST!! Thanks ever so much for sharing that...what a brilliant idea...

Lots of luck that the Pippin-viewing becomes a Pippin-selling....

The waxing moon sees my creativity at a bit of a peak and words flowing freely onto the page....hoping that it continues..;)

I hope Pippin goes to a nice, new home soon! Good luck with the revision!

Happy to hear that all sounds so well with you...Good luck with selling your Pippin...and finding a new project. We once restored an old holiday trailer, and just had a blast with it. :-)

I still don't want you to sell Pippin :(

Ravenoak said...

Oh no, poor Pippin.

Still, a new project will be very exciting.

Good luck with the exams.

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