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"

~5 days of enchantment~day 2~

here we are on day two of Jani's 5 days of enchantment
i think being an Aquarian~the water barer and an air sign, this is perfect for me.
as i sit here typing i have a cool breeze flowing over me from the open window behind me and bird song floating in that cool air.
usually i sit outside in my nook burning incense and often take photos of the smoke as it rises~i have a supply of Glastonbury bought incense like jani and adore it (there shall be much re-stocking next Tuesday when i am there again!) but i also burn nag champa, a lose blend made my friend tilli and sometimes my own blend.
i also burn it in my work room when i am working although with a closed door between me and the rest of the house as swampy is not overly keen (grrrr!)
Aquarius is a fix air sign, ruled by eccentric and unpredictable Uranus and hard working Saturn~i am all about thinking, focus, humanity and rebellion!
take three deep breaths...
everyday, first thing, preferably out in your garden!
i do this each morning in my garden (unless our rain makes me think monsoon has come to the new forest!) i love getting out there as early as possible and just 'being' enjoying the peace and birdsong...

hi, Laoi greetings right back at ya from fellow blogalonger Lynne from Quirk strangeness and charm. I have only just finished my earth words so am way behind the air and fire stuff. Looking forward to it. Incense is a bit like marmite eh? You either love it or hate it ;)

hi Lynne! welcome to my blo/blogalong :) ha yes i love marmite and incense!

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