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"

~two moon days~

my camera isn't the best for taking nice photos of the moon (note to self~when i need to replace it get one that i can take good moon-shots!) but i like to take photos anyway and make you suffer them!

the night before last it rose, almost full and was a glorious apricot color~

last night she rose from behind the trees where the buzzards nest~all i could see was a huge white disc broken by leafy branches~because of our high wooden fence i could not sit in comfort and watch her rise but stood, transfixed watching as she slowly cleared the trees almost seeming to suddenly float free of the trees into the night sky~

despite feeling a bit off with my moontime i am feeling the moon~energy today and think it will be a good day for divination and journaling...

I think they are good photos, far better than my feeble attempts to photo the moon, the second pic really captures the apricot colour well x

I've never managed a good picture of the Moon at night though I've got reasonable daytime ones. The bottom one is good, nice and clear and none of the fuzziness I usuallyalways get. Your trip to Avebury looked fun, you had wonderful weather too.

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