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"

~dark moon & equinox~

so within days we have had the dark moon and coming up is the autumn equinox.
my stonewylde clan had a dark moon ritual working on the protection of the badgers of this land who our near-sighted government have decided needs culling.
on the night of the equinox we are having a simple 'non ritual'-i will be sitting by my fire and thinking, meditating and we will be sending out blessings to each other.
so the last harvest, a day of equal light and dark is upon us and we give thanks to the great mother for her gifts.
i have been thinking of the ancestors and how they would spend the dark months.
many of mine were farm hands and so would have had intimate knowledge of the land and the changes throughout the year, many more worked with the sea and rivers so i imagine they would have knowledge of the seasons via the water.
i wonder if any of them followed a nature loving/pagan path?
i have been thinking of course how i will be spending the dark months, looking at my list from my previous post...
but what has been strongly in my mind just lately is my spiritual path, my soul journey.
for a few years now i have been thinking of doing the bardic grade from the
ovate of bards, ovates and druids
i would love to sit here and just join but like many people in the world right now i have money to think of, to some £12 a month is nothing but to many its £12 of fuel, or towards shopping, or a bill.
...maybe if i made £12 a month through my etsy shop then i could do it!
now there is something...what an idea...

what a great idea! £12 a month though etsy! that would be wonderful and would fund your course. put that out to the Universe. it is not asking for a million pound lottery win... so the Universe wouldn't look on that as being greed. ask for what you need dear friend... ask. if it is the path you should be taking then it will happen. when I wanted to do my Reiki and had no money the Universe found a way for me to do it and the funds became available. it happens.... believe. but then I know you do :-) sending you positive vibes. love and blessings, Willow xXx

Hoping that the "etsy funding" works out if you decide to give it a go, don't think you'd be disappointed with the course :)
