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"

~sun shine~

~last years blue sky~

its a good day today

the grey cloud that sat over us when i got out of bed-after laying, listening to the birds start to sing in the still dark dawn-has lifted, leaving this ancient forest covered in a blanket of the brightest blue.

the sunlight is pouring through the large window that looks out over our garden, casting its happy glow over our mantel/alter.

today is the kind of day where the sunshine and the warmth it brings to our sheltered garden helps me forget my aches and pains and feel joy in being able to enjoy it all

*i hope your day is a good one wherever you are*

Days like that are wonderful aren't they? Especially after a long grey winter the sun and the blue skies lift your spirits even if they only stay for a day. I hope that the pain you have been suffering has eased.

If only that sunshine was with us today!! What a difference a day makes, 24 hours later and the weather is a complete opposite.

I wish we had the sunshine, rain, rain and more rain x

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