rise and root



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"

For some time I have wanted to make an image with which to start a quiet revolution on the backs of service station toilet doors, on the billboards behind carparks, over the screens of insidious train-journey advertising

In deep hatred for the feeling I get when I am forced to enter motorway service station cafes, shopping malls or toilets, I wanted to rail against all that is bland and homogeneous and commercial and life-suckingly chrome-and-concrete and spreading un-refuted like a disease across our land

do you not get a shiver of excitement from reading the words 'quiet revolution'?

a few times i have blogged about my dis-satisfaction about our world and how the soul has been leeched from it in so many ways and rima has expressed oh-so perfectly what so many of us have been thinking for a long time.

are you going to join this beautiful, quiet revolution?

Isn't it fantastic. I have also downloaded it and I am going to print a couple of T Shirts (as Rima suggested). What a clever woman :)
Hope you are OK? Health and Happiness to you and yours for 2012. Blessings

I have to say, the relief i felt to see something so incredibly positive to help this planet and try and turn our world around brought tears to my eyes....i shall be printing out a load and leaving them on tables in coffee shops, in toilets, on benches, train stations and anywhere else these are needed....

Count me in ! I have already turned my back on that type of world, but now I am ready to look back over my shoulder and donate useful comments to those who want to follow that ' quiet revolution '.

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