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


we had centre court tickets so started the day on arriving at the tube closest to wimbledon was to get a bus...a proper old bus...

 we found a shady spot at the top of henman hill/murray mound to sit until we wanted to get our seats on centre court~only the day before we found we would be lucky enough to see Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray play

from our spot we could see right into the centre of london, including the hideous new 'shard' (remember to click on the photos!)

the next day we had to return home so had the morning down on the thames in the foot of the london eye...good grief its huge!

this week was the annual
and as is usual for the last 40 years we went as a family on wednesday and although not a huge royalist i was pleased to see the Queen and Prince Philip ending their jubilee tour at the show.
we didnt get a photo of them in the car but swampy managed to get a photo as their car drove his way.
the last time i saw them was during the silver jubilee when they drove through the village...then i had my little kodak my dad had bought me and i still have the photo i managed to take of the back of their car!
well now i need to go make myself some dinner so tomrorow i shall tell you, finally, of my new hobby

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