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

we have had more rain since my post and that is how the day started but now the sun is shining which always makes me feel better.
i have washing hanging on the line that is nearly dry and swampy has been able to get out and fix a wheel bearing on 'pretty pagan' that has been rumbling and grinding for a while.
 
i had two appointments this morning, one with my gp who prescribed me medication for blood pressure and told me what i thought was, and was told by another gp last year, ringworm is actually a skin condition called  granuloma annulare, possible linked to my diabetes.
no wonder the steroid cream i had been given was doing nothing!
he told me to google it when i got home...so i did...
 
it seems there is really nothing to cure it, that it comes and goes...so i am hoping that it is my diabetes and when that is controlled it will vanish. i have been referred to a diabetologist to discuss my medication so i am feeling hopeful.
 
then we had to travel to my appointment at the pain management clinic to see their clinical psychologist. i had taken my crochet with me so was able to squeeze in a ten minute hooky time.
it was a good appointment and i came out feeling quite positive and looking forwards to my next appointment.

...well there was a quick break there to get the washing in, huge black clouds have rolled in from the west and its raining again!

i have been doing daily meditations with my *earth magic* cards~i have had them a couple of years but was never really sure about them, plus i have been caught up with first, the green man oracle, druid plant and druid animal oracle and now of course my shamans oracle.
then i thought they might work well for just a daily meditation~something for me to think on during the day. i have to say its been very useful. i shuffle them and usually pick out the card that decides to poke out beyond the others...
 
one day i had...
 
 *river~movement*
to go with the flow of life, not fight the movement as it will hamper making choices
 
the following day i had *waterfall~spirit*
spirit is asking me to step beyond the edge and not fight or struggle. but move forward with awareness and grace
 
don't you think i am being told something?
