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

~its freezing~

two weeks ago i had high hopes for the weather improving

as i wrote here i could smell spring in the air, hiding just out of reach but oh so temptingly close~where has it gone?

the past few days have been freezing cold with a sharp, biting wind that makes you want to stay indoor snug and warm.

my maudlin mood has passed and i am needing to get out in the garden~i did manage to go around with my dibber in the back garden yesterday.
because it had to be completely re-worked last year (older visitors will remember the dreadful state of both house and garden when we moved in!) the flower beds are bare~no evergreen to be seen and of course no spring flowers. the only flowers are the ones we planted when we worked on codys garden.
so out i went, scarf wrapped around my neck, dibbing holes and putting in little tete a tete's, it became so cold and it was making my m.e aches and pains worse, i had to the leave the snowdrops for another day...maybe later today if it warms up.

i have also become behind with my studies, a week behind, which is far too behind for comfort for me, so i am going to have to put in some big study days over the coming week for i have an essay due in the beginning of march, another in april and in june my exam.

i just can't seem to get going...

Its been pretty cold down here too, probably explains why I've been "hibernating" lol but I am starting to come out of it now! Its a great time too curl up on the couch with your study books and crack down on some reading! ;) hehehe

Keep Care! :)

can't relate to the cold at the moment where humidity is sometimes at 99%... but maybe you need warming up from the inside.. two things 1. ginger tea and 2. sit with spirit for 20mins.. just sit, close your eyes and focus on your breath . xo
hope it warms up for you soon xo

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