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"

~tales from the sick bed~

i have been poorly, very poorly as you know.

yesterday i felt fine although swampy told me to stay in bed for the day.

so i was quite optimistic this morning~i got up even though i felt a bit snuffly and feeble.

well within a few hours i find myself back in bed wrapped in my blankets, feeling as if i have taken the proverbial one step forward two (maybe three) steps back.


i have done a few bits during the 'okay' moments as my needle felting supplies arrived....

this is actually a little shallow bowl...


my OU studies are officially on hold now until...whenever

i have to say, despite the cold getting me down, i feel totally liberated, and i am still giving thanks to you all for freely giving your wisdom and support over this.

well swampy is just about to bring me some soup

so more from me another day

Love the needle felting, esp the toadstool.

Healing vibes being sent.

hope you are feeling much better -
and good to hear about your studies.. just enjoy life, doing what you love.. neither of us need a Uni degree.

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