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"

I am so very sorry about this, like spirit I thought he was on the road to recovery. No wonder you are feeling down. I hope he was eased gently into the Summerlands and is now running free and happy.

Cody is so beautiful...a springer spaniel?
He looks so loving and it must be just awful for you to have to say goodbye.
sending you thoughts of peace and healing and comforting hugs knowing that Cody is romping with the heavendogs.

boho mum~yes cody is a field english springer spaniel.

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