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~

as i sit, with leveret and magpie playing around my feet (i never knew how entertaining it can be watching kittens play!) and flynt comfortable on the armchair and sandy denny on iTunes, i am thinking of the seed intentions i planted to germinate over the dark months.
its so dark here in this ancient forest, so much darker than this time of day only two weeks ago.
i had to spend some time this morning trimming back some long runners of the rambling rose over the nook or run the risk of impaling myself on the sharp thorns as i make my way up and down the pathway. i didn't take my time however because today is the day our council in, what i consider, their poor judgement, started to fell 5 of the 6 huge Monterey Pines that are just behind calvs house.
i tried to defend them but one person and a handful of signatures on a petition was not weighty enough to fight a government body.
so i could not bear to be in the garden and listen to the chain saws and crack of branches, as a result i have even had the windows shut to save my ears from listening.
instead i have sat and done some research into a new phase of production for the wylde apothecary~part of my seed intentions.
have you set your seed intentions yet?

sitting watching the kittens must be great fun so full of energy just as well you have 2 they will wear each other out rather than you :) such a shame about the trees x

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