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"

~*seed intentions*~

good morning all
well who is buzzing as we make that last step towards the spring equinox/alban eilir~'the light of spring'?
i am
this morning i fought my bruxus with an extensive journal entry about the equinox, taking tips from the passage in my earth pathways diary from glennie kindred.
 pondering about the seeds i want to grow in my life
celebrating what makes me feel good and follow these things
what do my 'seed intentions' need to grow?
what will prevent them from growing?
i filled four pages of my journal and this will be the basis of my equinox ritual.
i am not sure what the weather will be...when i got up this morning we had freezing fog...in my heart of hearts i am hoping it will be fine enough to have my fire out in my garden.
as well as my journal entry i came in and gave my room, my 'grrl cave' a good spring clean, wiped around with a damp cloth, re-arranged my altar, tidied my desk, watered my plants, rearranged some of the bits and bobs i have surrounding me, got a mug of coffee and listening to omnia's 'beltaine' cd~celtic harp so very relaxing.
i wont bore you with the details of my 'seed intentions' but needless to say you will be seeing the fruits of my seeds over the coming months~i am feeling so positive that i cannot let myself believe that it will not come into fruition.
