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

~'time for bed' said zebedee~

its been a busy week this week in the new forest~not the least today.

i was at our little cottage hospital this morning to had my long awaited hysterscopy (or as i like to call it my hysterical-scopy.
as i had a general anesthetic i was happily oblivious to the indignity that followed and before i knew it i was being woken up and shortly after wheeled to my room.

did i say 'my room'? why yes indeed i did. when i arrived i expected to be on a small ward, but no i had my own room complete with bathroom and TV~which i didn't have time watch!

so now i wait six weeks until i find out whats what when i see my consultant again.


last night i had some good news~my final essay for my present course came back with a rather good 70%~now i just need to get my exam out of the way and then i am faced with eight months of freedom!


at the weekend we ventured back into dorset for our yearly h van rally~despite no longer owning our h van we still went along and will continue to go to support the group.

i love this campsite for where we always park up faces the neolithic dorset cursus...

and the land around it is full of barrows...


for now i shall leave you with this for the anesthetic is still drifting through my system and i have become so very sleepy...

Well done on your essay mark! Hope you get all the right noises from your consultant when you go to see him, meantime take care of yourself and enjoy a nice quiet weekend

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