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"

~come to Bloomsbury with me~

well now...

here i am at last...

here is my belated post from my trip to London and Wimbledon~i do apologise for my tardy behaviour!

so, getting off the tube at Russel Square in Bloomsbury, a beautiful grade II listed building...



which has a memorial to those who died in the 2005 London Bombing...



we were faced with the Brunswick...


from the ouside they looked quite grim, apart from some of the balconies that had window boxes and potted tree's, however seeing a sign for Waitrose (a supermarket for those outside of the uk!) we decided to investigate and was very pleasently surprised...


 within there was a shopping centre with all kinds of nice shops and cafe's...overlooked by balconies with tree's and parasols...





a few moments further on through Bloomsbury we came to Cartwright Gardens where we were to stay...the semi-circualr buildings overlooked a half moon park where people would play tennis or jog after work...



out the back we had a little garden...




we settled in and then went back out to explore this area of Bloomsbury and i just loved it, full of quirky shops, cafes and restaurants with cyclists making the most of the cycle lanes and hire bikes...



i so wish this cafe was in my village~i would be there everyday with my book and a mug of something nice...





this was our little apartment, named by us 'the dungeon'...


tomorrow i shall take you to Wimbledon...

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