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"

my, it feels as if i have been away for ages, but in reality its been just a few days.

yesterday was my first full day out of bed, although this morning i am not feeling my best~it keeps coming back as if its the first day of my cold rather than the end.
swampy has now come down with it now but of course he has 'man flu'!

i will catch up with your blogging over the next day or two.


this week is the week for the new forest show~today is the first day and the weather has remained nice. we are going tomorrow so i hope the sun stays away.

it has been so hot and humid here for days now~yesterday was awful~i know its terrible to say that but it was~the sky was covered in dark clouds, but no rain fell and the heat was pretty much unbearable.
we had a fan going but the noise of the fan was just as bad as the heat!

it actually feels a little cooler today however although the sun is just starting
to burn through the clouds.

*i hope its cooler where you are today*

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