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"

I have been somewhat distracted and yet again neglected this blog, despite the promises i made to myself.

i have been updating my wylde apothecary blog as i have been making new pendants and some lovely hand/wet felted cord for them...i am really happy how the felted cord has turned out and i love how they look with my pendants.

i also have a sticker-pixie who makes internal/external pagan/witch/fae themed stickers under the guise of Terra Pyksys 


so let me rewind a bit, back to the moongazy gathering and our night out to the Calne Folk and Acoustic Collective as we have some very talented musicians and singers in our little tribe

we were able to squeeze everyone into Pretty Pagan for the drive into Calne!

the venue was a small cafe tucked away behind the high street and we more than doubled the crowd as we went pouring in.
it was a fantastic night and the music and singing from all those who participated amazing and i wish we lived that smidge closer so we could go more often.

thank you Yarrow :) Although I have not been blogging lately I felt that it was time to have a bit of a 'spring clean' and start writing again. Thank you for the compliment too...I had a sudden thought one day that hand felted cords would be perfect for my pendants xox

The hand felted cords are a lovely touch :D
I hope you have fun at the NF Show and find a lovely drop spindle to play with. Look out for the rare breeds ponies, a couple of Merlin's brothers may be in the line up <3

Ohhh if i had seen this sooner i would have gone looking for them-i sort of saw the Household Calvery but then hurried to the walkway to the arena and so filmed them as them came out...the big horse with the drums is so beautiful

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