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"

~let it snow~

news of my MRI can be seen here its not pretty i can tell you!


well we have finally had the snow that everyone else but us has been having.

it started last night after days of bitterly cold weather~when even the heating and closed curtains cannot keep the cold at bay and we have been sitting wrapped in blankets~and flakes silently fell all night and much of today.

when we woke up early this morning 4-6 inches of snow covered the garden.
two days ago we had taken our snowboard boots out of storage 'just in case' and we were glad of them when taking flynt for a walk.
the snow lay on all the roads here, even the main road to the next village was just a layer of thick, compacted snow with a few cars driving along (with the usual idiots who think driving at speed on slippy, snowy roads is acceptable).

we walked to the nearest open forest, about a five minute walk from home, and flynt had a wonderful time bouncing around, burrowing through the deeper drifts and meeting other dogs out for some fun. we then decided to walk through the village on the way home to see what shops were closed and how busy it was.
there were very few people there~tucked up warm watching the weather i expect.

we took plenty of photos but as yet i have not loaded them to my laptop.

looking at the time we will shortly be booting up again for flynts final walk of the day~its been starting to get dark by about 3.30 and we like to be home and in the warm by the time the dark comes on.

it seems we are forecast for more snow today, with tomorrow being clear and freezing.

~well time to get booted up~

Hope you are managing to stay warm - it was down to 13F here last night! All dogs seem to love the snow don't they? B Baggins plunges in to even the deepest snow and bounds over it with his long legs. Wish I could say the same!

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