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"

Lovely new spuds, nothing like them with butter and salt.

Those potatos and peas look lovely. We have the rain here as well and I'm so glad to see it. Not only for the garden but for the wild birds and animals as well, many have been struggling to find food because the ground was rock hard. I'm happy to have a few days of rain - I can find plenty to do indoors:)

Lovely pictures and a great harvest. We need to eat some mange touts and beans today! And I want to make some “spinach” from radish leaves (yummy with potatoes and feta cheese)

That's a nice harvest, we've had a good lot of peas this year, and with what we've grown in the garden and the allotment we should get enough spuds to last a few months (fingers crossed) It's a great felling when you look at a few spuds or peas and think I grew that :-) and they taste great as well.

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