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"

~from my sickbed~

another fuzzy photo!

from my sick bed

my word, that's dreadful!

this is my bedside table~a painted (and unintentionally distressed) dining chair housing my wind-up radio, olbas pastilles, olbas oil, strepsils i was using before swampy found the olbas, glasses (taken off as i was getting a headache, little box which houses bits and bobs and a half finished lemon and honey.

as you can guess i am back in bed and the reason for having my laptop here with me is that i just watched my sister graduate :) plus i found a really good youtube video of an american guy doing a granny square.

oh i know i am ill but its been bugging me so much~anyway i think i have it filed away in the old grey matter now!

the camera has been found by the way so there is no excuse for such a dreadful picture.
however,i am refusing to use it until swampy has uploaded a load of photos of steam trains onto his own computer. he always takes loads of garden photos which end up on my computer, accumulates and slows everything down.

well thats it for now!

Ooh I have a little box exactly like that (I bought it in the £ shop in Glasters). I keep meaning to decorate it....maybe once I get unpacked at the other end :D
Hope you're on the mend.

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