On a Spectrum

 ON A SPECTRUM
 It’s not what she says, or how she says it,
 Crystal our Dragon can never explain it.
 Anti social with repetitive habits,
 many don’t understand or grasp this. 
 

 Crystal has always wanted to be, 
 a light worker of the Orbs dynasty. 
 Working at night as everyone slept,
 deep in her cavern, lost secrets kept.
 

 In Dragons lair, as lightening strikes,
 mystickal energy crosses ley lines.
 Lost in chit chat in her own mind,
 preferring silence and alone times.
 

 Some have said ‘She looks too sad’
 frosty and klutzy, traits she has had. 
 Flapping her wings and claw licking,
 spectrometer of rays rise on flickering. 
 

 It’s in Crystal’s aura that you can see, 
 a rainbow spectrum, of light frequency.
 Epidote, quartz and fizz of amethyst,
 moon charged rain, a shard of tryst.
 

 As virtue of autism spectrum disorder, 
 eyes a twinkle, as prisms transform her.
 These are her quirks and plain to see,
 why would you vilify anyone having ASD?

Pen Dragon

 PEN DRAGON 
 Reading is often an optical illusion,
 causing Pen Dragon daily confusion. 
 When studying books for learning,
 his cognition is deeply concerning.
 

 Backwards lettering and all upside down,
makes Pen Dragon squint and frown. 
Words skipping about all over the page, 
 causes frustration, igniting his outrage.
 

 All jumbled up and out of order,
 giving him headaches and nausea.
 Pen Dragon can’t link words to sounds,
 it’s a nonsense, as letters shake around. 
 

 Printed stories, are mysteries to him,
 he’s vowed that he will ‘Never give in’
 ‘I can do it, I can do it’ he repeats; 
 ‘Letters will never be the ruin of me’ 
 

 And Welsh green Dragon remembers,
 his breath would singe pages to embers. 
 It was hinted that the great fire in London, 
 was what Pendragon’s ancestor had done. 
 

 Whatsisname had, had this the same, 
 singled out in classes, as a hot shame.
 Perhaps dyslexia, could, be an advantage, 
 like Harry Potter, aka Daniel Radcliffe. 
 

 Concluding that having more self esteem, 
 and lots of practice would help him read. 
 Taking small bite sized chunks to fill gaps,
 Pen Dragon paced himself, as he relaxed.

 I CAN DO IT 
 
People suffering from dyslexia are highly creative, intuitive and excel at three-dimensional problem-solving. Their visual learning style means they learn best through a creative process. When dyslexics use learning methods that fit their thinking style, they can excel.

Twitchy

 
 
TWITCHY 
 Rowina is a scatty, bookworm nerd,
 obsessed with witchcraft worlds. 
 A hyperactive ADHD fidgety child,
 a short attention span makes her wild.
 

 To maintain and hold her focus,
 she methodically studies hocus pocus. 
 When distracted, edgy or frustrated,
 a sorceress mentality is initiated.
 

 Known for being twitchy and odd,
 Rowina doesn’t care a sod.
 Non judgemental and open minded,
 she prefers to find her own findings. 
 

 Biting at the bottom of her lip,
 studying legendary enchanter tips.
 Is it a cult, or was it a religion?
 swotting hard to make her decision.
 

 A good witch of magic and natural balance,
 casting spells, is her lifelong challenge. 
 To master her craft to become a witch Don,
 is a discipline she’s vowed to take on.
 

 No-one is harder on her, than herself,
 a wide streak of perfectionism swells. 
 Reworking her spells 7 or 8 times more;
 everyone has seen her tenacity before. 
 

 Separating fact from fiction, 
 is her fundamental mission. 
 Rowina finds when agitated or mad,
 she puts on her *familiar thinking Cat.

*Familiar

The familiar spirit can be an animal companion.

ADHD’s trademark hyperfocus is a serious advantage — if you can effectively channel all that attention and energy into work that makes a difference. “Many scientists, writers, and artists with ADHD have had very successful careers, in large part because of their ability to focus on what they’re doing for hours on end,” says Kathleen Nadeau, Ph.D.

Forgiving, February

For Giving – February

In numerology, February represents:

‘Two’ ~ The Duo. Consideration of others. 

‘Two Smiles are Better than One’

February promises to be fantastic for building relationships, not only with others, but also with yourself. 

Teamwork is key this month. What sort of shared goal might fulfil you? Doing things together gives you motivation and makes you feel appreciated. 

Take things slowly and seek harmony in all that you do. 

Make peace with people or issues that are, or have been bugging you. 

Your task is to let go of grudges and to learn the art of compromise and compassion for others. Your challenge will be to see the connections, where conflicts can be resolved, otherwise drama may become a frequent threat. Take yourself out of the conflict and spend time considering both sides of the equation. 

Aim to be placid, not passive. Being pleasant is one thing, but a pushover is quite another. Build bridges, as you look for common ground. Don’t be stubborn if you feel you are getting nowhere, ask someone you respect for their candid opinion. Sometimes it takes a wise third party to break the deadlock. 

Reach out in your relationships, but don’t neglect your own dreams and desires to satisfy someone else’s and end up feeling powerless or mis-used.

Your February mantra should be: ‘Kindness Matters’

‘Your greatness is measured by your kindness; and your real caliber is measured by the consideration and tolerance you have for others’

William J.H. Boetcker

A Close Brush

 
A CLOSE BRUSH 
 As she grated open the closet door,
 he was a tangled mess strewn on floor.
 Dragging him out of the cupboard, 
 she could see his body had suffered.
 

 Her old, trusty and true friend, 
 now lay all battered and bent. 
 He turned his gaze towards her,
 pouting his demise and slaughter.  
 

 “You, uh, want to come with me?”
 Dominique whispered to him tearfully. 
 He’d been abandoned there,
 where it seemed no-one cared.
 

 Broken, weary and worn out, 
 retired from sweeping about. 
 Hired to keep everything clean,
 now disregarded and unseen. 
 

 The old broom, now scraggy and old,
 in shreds, of ragtags lay in the  cold.
 Dominique picked up her magic besom, 
 as hexes of new ideas began to blossom. 
 

 Could her brush be polished, recycled?
 as a witch, her sweeper had been vital. 
 Gathering up ribbons and glue,
 Dominique knew just what to do.
 

 Revamping, wrapping and fixing,
 all new twigs that had been missing.  
 Rustic chic was now the new look,
 a craft she had happily undertook. 
 

 Broom now, proudly stood at front door,
 Dominique remembered her witchy lores.

The evil green-skinned witch flying on her magic broomstick may be a well-worn stereotype. But the actual history behind how witches came to be associated with such an everyday household object is anything but dull.

Spell Tree

 
SPELL TREE

She tapped her finger against her lips
 casting a rune made of Rowan twigs.
 Charms that were carved into staves,
 drawn to express emotions and create. 
 

 Magical, whispering Rowan tree of power,
 causing happiness and magic to flower. 
 Protector from the witches evil eye,  
 or the dead lingering on when they die. 
 

 Red berry tonics, of flame and fire,
 what does your heart and soul desire?
 Psychic powers, for spells of healing, 
 You will find all negative forces receding.

From January 21 – February 17. 

Rowan Tree, (Luis) ~ Protection and inspiration.  Also known as Witch Tree, or Wicken Tree. 

Ogham Tree Meaning: Vision. Healing. Transformation. Connection. 

This is a time to freely express yourself both emotionally and creatively. Remember that you are only responsible for your actions, not other peoples’ reactions to them; Be aware of negative influences around you Give yourself the time and space to let new thoughts and ideas arise in you, take time out to clear your mind so that you also have the mental space to facilitate this.

Rune staves, sticks upon which runes were inscribed, were cut from the Rowan tree.
