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"

~sacred space~

another beautiful day here in the forest
i woke before dawn to the waning moon shining in through the bedroom window and the very first birds starting to sing...i lay listening to the bird song grow louder and the dark fade from the sky, each star slowly fading.
i got up while the moon was still visible over our garden and stood out there~it was chilly, but a nice chilly and all i could hear was bird song and a very distant chainsaw. again i thought how luck we are to live here and have little noise pollution.
then it was time for my regular morning routine that involves feeding flynt, magpie and leveret and then taking my first lot of medication while my coffee brews. then i either sit here and blog, read for a while or catch up with any documentary i may have record.
this morning its blogging and a documentary on Vivaldi.
today from my *earth magic* oracle i have been given fairies
i just adore the cover to this set of cards...

because i drew this card after being out in my garden it again seems rather significant...
the card is a reminder that we have the same power as the fae~starting with loving the earth through gratitude and actions. the fae will help you to reconnect with the earth but you have to pay attention to the trees and plants and care for them. to treat every tree, flower, herb, shrub as you would a dear friend and you will be rewarded...
while out in the garden last sunday, when we had the day of sun and warmth i was thinking of where i could place my garden altar and moving my cauldron.
my garden altar is always a bit hit and miss~i can never really find a place that feel 'right' so i have been thinking about it over the week.
i am unsure whether to try to develop a small area or expand it so a whole section of the garden is an sacred area...i think a bit of browsing via pinterest might be in order!

a few years ago, I was lucky enough to take part in a shamanic healing circle with Steven Farmer. brilliant stuff!

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