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"

~all change~

well the changes to the land around me has prompted this 'autumn clean' of my blog~time for new back ground and colors to herald this time of contemplation and withdraw.

the last few months has once again seen my path come to a standstill and my thoughts turn away from the things i believe to more mundane, the ordinary.

maybe it was a natural standstill for my body in preparation for the inner contemplations to come over the coming months~the north wind that is covering the land is turning my mind inwards~focusing beyond the aches and pains my body brings me to reside in the 'other' me...

over the last few days there has been a shift within me~a feeling of settling down and the need to 'do'~my green man oracle has been calling me for days now although i have had a longing to go further along this path...

i am having a strong urge to change things within the home~to warm things up with strong autumn colors~to turn our home into a place of warmth and meditation.
at this moment it feels like a 'non' place~i imagine if i took out my dowsing rods today there would be confusion...

*its time to settle and focus and dream again*

A lovely sentiment. I find myself thinking of changing leaves and pumpkins. Browns and oranges and greens....

I know exactly how that feels Laoi, all our belongings are in storage, the house is cold and no creature comforts.
I cannot wait to be able to do what you describe, you summed up where I am at, for sure.
Sending you kind wishes.

I find myself in the same place. Wanting to gather what I'll need for the coming winter, settle in and just be. Maybe I can find some answers in this inner searching.

Oh, I am experiencing this too, this turning inwards and also the need for contemplation. How strange the way seasons affect our moods in this way, but also how profound and beautiful. It's a quieter mood, a spiritual mood, one which I find myself working to balance out.

Beautiful and insightful writing here. Thank you.

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