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"

hello world!
that actually reads slightly more chipper than i am feeling...
the bruxus/associated migraine i had been suffering became worse so i have had some days away from the computer and my crafting and been on the sofa doing very little but a bit of reading, a bit of crochet and watching a few christmas films...i haven't even been out for walks and missed the first hard frosts of winter gracing our forest.
last night when i went to bed i took a selection of my pain meds and a mug of starchild's 'dream tea'
(half milk, half water, a spoon of honey and a good heaped spoon of the tea mixture)
well the tea worked a treat and i had a good nights sleep and woke up with much less pain this morning...its still there, a niggling pain in my right eye and temple and some tightness in my neck and shoulder but no-where near as bad as it has been.
so long as i keep quiet and relaxed i am hoping it will go in the next 24 hours.
i am feeling upset about it all though because there had been longed for plans to meet with the lovely robyn and joe in glastonbury while they are here from australia but i was just too unwell to travel the 2 hours it takes us to get there.
robyn was the first blogger i met back in 2007 and we have been in touch ever since so this would have been a special meeting...but i will not say 'a once in a lifetime' opportunity because i have family in australia and who knows...maybe one day...

Lavender tea also helps me along with pain killers. I have no option there. Lavender tea is great for relaxing the muscles
