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"

~rain...lots of rain~

its been raining hard all day again.

it seems we are having alternate days of rain and sun, so maybe tomorrow will be sunny. i hope so.

so today i have done little...

toast with whiskey marmalade

peering out the window for delivery vans that may be bringing my 'money burning a hole' gift to myself~even though i know its way too early, but its fun to hope...maybe tomorrow!

drink tea *mint soother* *ginger mint* *lemon*

ate a salad of carrot, apple, tomato and red onion splashed with balsamic vinegar

looked up recipes to brighten up my menu ideas

took photos~lots of random photos from around the house, i shall post them tomorrow

looked out at the birds feeding in the garden *gold finch* *blue tits* *siskins*

i am now thinking a glass of mead to end the day.

oh my, i said end the day and its only 8pm~what am i like?
i am actually feeling not too bad today, i could stay up later~i have done little to use up my spoons but all the same its comfortable in my bed, i can put on my radio and sit there reading or writing in my journal or just thinking...

It was wet and very cold here as well yesterday but this morning looks better - or dryer anyway! We've had a frost overnight. Glad you are feeling a bit better, let's hope it continues.

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