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"

~some forest days~

the new year here in the new forest has been all about the weather~after the snow and ice that kept us village bound for a good ten days came heavy rain and floods...

the single street that makes up our village ends with a ford~what the villagers have always called the 'watersplash'~on this day it was impassable.

take a left after the watersplash is a road that leads past what is known as the 'common' and heads up to an area of the forest known as 'ten bends'. the common and road became one huge lake

codys best friend snoop~not enjoying his walk. he was in fact carried for most of his walk this day

we have had the odd clear day and on this day we were treated to the most amazing sunset

with everything that has been going on i did not think to post a picture of the beautiful 'one-off' green man necklace swampy had made for me to go with 'my lady moon'~made by a wonderful soul known as roses

i have my birthday coming up and i know there is another 'one-off' item being crafted for me...

We've had very wet weather over here too. Seems its either raining or snowing one : ) I'll be ready for spring and summer soon.

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