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"

~blue sky~

i woke with blue~sky joy this morning

the sun is shining and i can see buds on our forsythia tree and the crocus and snowdrops are blooming

will it last i ask myself?

probably not but it is nice while it lasts.

the downside?

i need to catch up on my studies...big time. i have been easily distracted of late and time-wasting on a massive scale and so find myself nearly a week behind on my work...

A bit of sunshine makes you feel great doesn't it. We've been out walking through dustings of snow with friends today with the sun beating down, it gladdens the heart. Good luck with the catch up, try to do it in chunks and don't do it in one go. I was always playing catch up with my OU degree and remember it hanging over me.

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