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"

~sunshine joy~

its been another glorious sunny day today and we drove off across the forest to visit our good friend Al

Al collected his new puppy tilly last week, born ten days after squishy, so of course we had to meet her...

she is so sweet and weeny-tiny. but for such a small, young pup she is very confident and already well socialised.
poor Al has had a sudden appointment with the hospital next week and we, of course, have been more than happy to step in and have Tilly for a few days...so imagine this house next week with two pups running around and causing all manner of chaos!

by the time we set off home it had clouded over a little but i still have such joy when driving through the forest


things are full-steam ahead for finally collecting squishy this wednesday.
luckily the soft crate i bought from a certain website finally arrived today. i was becoming increasingly worried as i paid for it 13 days ago and was gearing myself up to demanding my money back and having to get hold of another crate by first thing wednesday morning...so panic over.

we have finally settled on a name...

Your Forest is on my “to visit list" once I’ll get to the UK, it is so beautiful. But you know with the dogs there is a lot of planning nessessary long before and then IF we’ll go on a longer vacation I am SO dragged to Brittanny again. You’ll have lots of fun with the two pups and your days won’t be boring at all!

what kind of puppy is Tilly? she is gorgeously beautiful too!

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