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"

~liquorice tea & boots~

its freezing
really cold
i am sitting here with a mug of twinings comforting liquorice tea while the small fuzzie have a play (or snooze in wardrobe) and again swampy is on his guitar (i have shut the door to the living room!)
i am feeling better...enough to go on a walk over the forest today to the area where we have one of bronze age barrows...
the camera didn't pick it up but as we drove out from under the tree's the light was odd, it gave everything a weird but beautiful blue/lilac hue...
something was very concerning to flynt...
it was mr...or indeed ms...snowperson...



the bottom of the ponies hooves get iced up and then these icy boulders fall from them...
heading home...the old barn on the left was part of the farm my best friend in school lived on and this was the hay barn. we have many a fine hour throwing ourselves around the hay bales when we were young...

i actually sat down to write this post a few hours ago but became distracted by footwear on pinterest, and because it is my birthday coming up soon i thought i would look to see what i could find for myself.
the idea is that i want something boot wise but not with the extreme lacing that my green boots have...ones i can wear spring and summer when it is not hot enough for my birkenstocks...
i have found several boots so now have the dilemma of deciding which ones!
rest assured you will be the first to know!

gorgeous pics...the one nice thing i can say about snow is that it's marvelous for finding creature footprints...

thank you and welcome wild magnolia :)
ohhh the boots...i am on the search again today, i see many i love on pinterest but often they are of older styles that are heard to get hold of...so frustrating!

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