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"

Hopi Prophecy

~well now...~


what rain?

last night was another insomniacs dream~i lay tossing and turning for ages because my legs and hips were aching and having a burst of restless leg syndrome (anyone else have this? isn't it a nuisance?) by the time i decided to put on the radio within a few moments the presenter announced it was 3.45!
at one point i heard a burst of heavy rain on the greenhouse.

well i ended up getting a couple of hours of interrupted sleep~i kept dreaming about fast growing lizards escaping from a vivarium and coming after me~whats all that about?!

at the moment the sun is shining and the sky is mostly blue, the forecast for today is for showers, so i am hoping our new climbing jasmine will be put in to replace the clematis that suddenly died~leaving the arch over our front door only half covered and rather lop sided looking.


i have had some birthday money burning a hole in my pocket for a week or so now and couldn't quite decide what to buy with it~i kept thinking of things, then forgetting them.
well forget about it burning a hole, the hole burnt and the money fell out when i fell in love with something...but more about that when it arrives...but oh i am so excited about it!

*have a lovely day everyone!*

"restless leg syndrome"
I have suffered with this for 33 years. I tried explaining it to countles doctors, but they looked at me blankly. Then with the coming of the internet I discovered the crawling, twitching sensations in my calves which drove me mad every evening, had a name.
You have my sympathy Laoi, I know the frustration of being tired, wanting to nod off yet having to get out of your warm bed and walk about (which is what stops mine).
Looking forward to seeing your birthday "surprise"!

Just curious, but have you ever tried the elimination diet to see if you have food intolerances?? That is how I found out any wheat products (there are others)makes me ache all over especially in the hips and knees and general muscle pain.

We've had plenty of rain too. I've fortunately never had restless legs, but cant be nice. A surprise, looking forward to seeing what it is x

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