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"

~more blog love~

i would like to send huge hugs of thanks to mel and sue ~the purple pixie~ for this great award

for those of you who don't know, it originated with sue and her post...

As honest bloggers we:

* Speak our truth from the heart and tell it like it is.

* Share openly and honestly our true feelings without fear of judgement, Blame or shame.

* We write to share our achievements so others can also share our joy.

* We write about our bad times too, knowing that the love and support of others is around us and perhaps heal another’s pain in the process..

*We are human beings will real feelings and emotions and REFUSE to hide behind a mask.

* We dare to be different

* We are Free Spirits

* We realise that by spilling out, we lighten our load.

* We acknowledge our strengths and weaknesses and don't see them in terms of success or failure.

* We laugh together and cry together

* We are all following our own journey in our own unique way

* Above all else, we may lie on the floor, screaming and kicking, or feel like life is collapsing around us once in a while….but at the end of the day, we drag ourselves up, dust ourselves off and rise to fight another day.

For we are Warrior Women and we write not to please others, stroke our own egos or be judged, we blog because we care!
Our blogs are our therapy, and through sharing SHIfT HAPPENS!

i really love this...i love it a lot.

when i started this blog in june of 2007 i never imagined that two years down the line i would still be blogging and have had so many visitors~let alone all of you regular lovelies that visit me. i never thought my ramblings would cause people to come back for more.

i always thought my blog would be a place to be honest, a place to say what was on my mind and also a place to share my spiritual path and hopefully inspire others to follow their true path in this life~i was never entirely sure i achieved this but now i think i may have...

although this is not like a meme to pass around i would like to pass this award to the bloggers whose writings i love...some of you i am sure will have it from someone else~but accept it with love from me...and if you are not visitors to their worlds, please do so!

sue ~the purple pixie~ who was one of the first bloggers i visited and as well as being a true creative soul has given me some inspiration on my path

mel whose blog, unlike sue, is one of my more recent discoveries and what a wonderful find

the truly wonderful robyn and suzie who have been sharing their journey of up's and down's with amazing honesty

this makes me cry to receive this.. because just now, I have close Inglewood. I am so glad that you have enjoyed it and I am really and truly blessed to have stumbled across you & Pippin just after Daisy passed.. your words helped me tremendously and from that a true kindred friendship has sprung.
I don't usually take awards.. for the simple reason that over the years.. I have felt left out when I didn't receive one (my inner child insecurity I think) but now, because my inner child is hurting.. I am gonna grab this award and put it proudly on my blog
thankyou so much xoxo

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