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"

stopping for a quick chat among the stones~

seasprite,yours truly,crystal and swampy

i was given these dowsing rods by a very good friend, carp, who is also responsible for my learning the didgeridoo...(he is also responsible for the avebury photos posted here today~thank you!)

he started dowsing last year and i was going to eventually ask him to have me a set made~but he surprised me with these on saturday, so of course i wanted to try them immediately and luckily for me carp had been on a dowsing workshop in avebury and so knew what to show me.

yours truly and crystal dowsing the bands of energy

starting at the bottom of the stone the rods detected different bands of energy~we did it singly, then with two of us then with three and our rods all detected the energy at the same time~it was a fantastic experience~even swampy, who never really believed it had a go and was amazed.

of course it wasn't all dowsing~there was plenty of chatting and laughs

Sounds like you had an amazing and wonderful time!
Dowsing is such fun - I learned to dowse with rods at Avebury too. It's such a fabulous place to visit at any time, and dowsing there is a great experience.
It's also funny how dowsing can convert sceptics once they see it in action! T was a sceptic, but even he beame a believer and learned how to do it.

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