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"

full moon blessings to all my friends here in the blogosphere
i think the full moon has drained my energies-for the three days leading up to this harvest moon i have not been sleeping properly-waking in the night with a head full of ideas, one night laying listening to music until way past 5am.
last night i finally slept not waking until 10am which is astonishingly late for me
i think too the week of de-clutter has worn me down, used the few 'spoons' i have.
but it is appropriate that in this time between the equinox and the harvest moon that i have been this busy...the harvest moon represents clearing the clutter internally and externally so it feels like the end of the time of de-clutter.
now its time to really withdraw and spend the dark days and nights that lead us to samhain.
my new room-the half a room that has been turned into the new grrl-cave is almost finished-i have a few things sitting on the floor that will go back into the shed...sorry the man-cave...later today, a few things that need to be returned to their originators, two shelves and a picture to go up.
once that is done i will be making some 'curtains' for a couple of the shelve fronts, just so i don't have all the shelves open.
evangeline sits nicely behind the door and so does not take up any room at all.
so its all nearly ready...my own space within a space where i can sit and actually create the ideas that have been filling my head.
oh and what ideas, things i have wanted to try for ages but never thought i should
sacred items to wear about the person
all kinds of things...

It's interesting what you say about clearing out ready for Samhain, as I've begun doing that without thinking about it. Now I shall be more mindful, thankyou :D I need to see pictures of your grrl cave, it sounds wonderful. Good luck with the ideas :D

I too, would like to see photos of this lovely sounding creation nest ;) Could use a few ideas for a s-p-a-c-e here . . . there is so little!!

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