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"

tomorrow friends of ours will start to arrive and on saturday we shall be meeting up with other friends at avebury

the weather forecast is good and so tonight i shall be sat out under the stars, gazing up at the waxing moon and sending thoughts to all my friends out here

Have a nice break away in pretty pagan, is the pup going? Beau is now 9 1/2 mths and isn't too bad for biting now except for sleeves when he greets you or gets over excited. xxx Pixie xxx

Hope you have a good time, it's a wonderful time of year to be outdoors and enjoying the countryside - especially around Avebury and West Kennet. It isn't so much 'Wish you were here' as 'Wish I was there'! :)

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