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


my life is made up of cycles

cycles of inactivity when my m.e and fibro triumphs

cycles of activity when my maladies sink back which enable me to do more and my brain starts to fire on all cylinders.

i am slowly coming to the end of a cycle of inactivity thank the goddess

this last one has been a long one, never ending it seems.

i have been feleing tired, lethargic and had no energy to do anything much at all~my needle felting/jewellery making/crochet has all fallen by the wayside.

although my reading has been prolific...

back in may i started to read george r.r martins epic

and have been blown away with it.

i am currently reading 'a feast for crows' which is book five, alongside

by shane spall, the wife of the wonderful actor timothy spall

i digress...yes i am moving into a more motivated, productive cycle which i hope lasts a good long time


the weather has improved here no end-after weeks of wintry weather last week the jet stream shifted north bringing with it blazing hot sun.
yesterday we had some thunder showers and in late afternoon had a short thunder and lightning storm.

they always say that air pressure has a lot to do with how symptoms of chronic conditions are and i think there is something to the argument.
well off to do some felting!

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