The Hawthorn Queen

You can listen to, as well as read this blog, by clicking on this YouTube video:



I can smell her – the Queen of Spring – even before she arrives. I’m caught unawares: wandering down a rolling path, one morning she is suddenly here... on the breeze. Unmistakable, that musky scent of May’s breath, heavenly and sweet – a narcotic bouquet that intoxicates me, like the fragrance of a lover.

Even the very sight of her lithe and exotic forms excites me – knotted, bent and sculpted into shape by the wind. My Hawthorn Queen may appear in many guises, sometimes her branches flayed out to the sides like furrows in the sky. She is most deservedly the Queen of Spring.

Her presence consumes me. I am aghast! Splashing with unrestrained wild abandon, she, the May Queen, blooms, her blossom cresting over the hedgerows in long, rolling waves, following the rhythm of the Atlantic breakers… She is enigmatic, she is powerful and she is relentless.

She is a shape-shifter, a trickster of seasons. In midwinter she drapes herself in midsummer green with billows of glistening ivy, her crown filled with swaying sun-spiels of its seed heads highlighted in gold; in early spring, her first green buds, so hardly there that they seem to be a trick of the light, are a pale glaze of enchantment, more a refection of melting ice and lichened branches than the promise of green leaves; and here now in May, her triumphant coming out in this delicate spring heralds the hedonistic days of summer, a debutante of Nature, displaying her unique  treasure.

I peer into her canopy.  I gasp in admiration at tier upon tier of snowy spumes of white blossom, her branches bejewelled with white lace, festooning her in layers of bridal finery.

I have a flash of fellow-feeling, and instantly I receive an invitation to join her in her heavenly royal court…  I feel her joy, I feel her zest – I feel her exuberance and her queenly spirit!

How could I resist?

And so I party with her, and I too am coming out in style with panache and finesse, high spirits and celebration in salutation of this bonny day.

Putting your experience of joy into such lovely words allowed me to travel with you through it. Your voice carries so much of the original emotion. Thank you!

Leela Jamieson said...

Thank you beautiful beings for your wonderful comments. This is probably the first time I have written in a style that is very similar to that of my book

And I was so excited too, to have my first go at doing an audio recording of my writing - great practise for the audio tapes of my book.
I so much appreciate your support and love.

This is very exciting for me, for I feel I am writing in the style that I love - the style similar to that of my book.
And, I was so excited too, to have my first go at reading my writing out loud.Great practise for when I come to do the audio recordings for my book.
I so much appreciate your love and support.

this does not flow leela,and its very hard to read.the brain is working overtime trying to understand all the big words.this is poetry,for the highest of educated.i showed your work to couple authors,and others.unfortunatly all reflected same response.they come to the conclusion.to write a short piece like that,in flow.would have taken ten mins,from the heart.they all guessed the writer took days to complete this,and used every effort to complicate,what should have been simple exspression.perhaps its time to throw in the towel now.like this mail your going to delete.writer needs to grow from honest critism from the heart,not delete it

Hello anonymous,
I am surprised you still read my Blogs! .

Frankly your words are unkind and cruel and do hurt me.

However,I will never stop doing what I love: to do so would comprise my Spirit.Writing is the most ecstatic way for me to express myself and share the amazing experiences that I have.... it's like oxygen to my soul.
And there are many who love my poetic and expressive style of writing and some who may not(;as clearly you do not ) - and that's okay - everyone has their own taste.
That's what brings beauty and diversity to our world.Welcoming diversity is a an act of love and fosters unity.

With love, Leela.

you choose the name margret,from your true essance,before birth...your parents gave you that same name....you chose tough lifetime to ground yourself,when the time was right...you would like spring,shed all old,and sprout into new flower.....your parents dont know leela,she is someone you chose to gett away from reality of 3d,3d pains...nothing in the energy flow of leela will ever come to fruit,because she is not real....not REAL... creation you choose to RUN AWAY..... now grow up,get your identity of margret back...build new bridges with past,make amends and enjoy the time left margret has with her family....put leela to bed once and for all,allow margret to show you the way.....stop running away from you...margrets family deserve that,even if you dont understand.namaste...ps,its true about the messager always getting it in the ear

Leela Jamieson said...

Hello again,

You have no idea at all about my life or who I am And I consider it very presumptive and arrogant of you to think you know me.

And like many people who write, i have chosen a name that helps me identify with the energy and of that which I am embracing now; and this is nothing to do with denying my past.
In fact, I am honouring my past, for the amazing gifts that i have been given, by threading them into the fabric of my book - to help me become more and more in touch with my true essence.
And in the process of writing my book I feel ...I know, i am actually becoming more and more the real me .. probably for the first time in my life.
Oh ..Joy of Joy !

Consider this, maybe there is part of you that wants to free yourself from the rigidity of your controlled thinking and way of living that gets jangled when you interact with me.

Be free,be light,be you,

All In Love,
Leela

you invited all to comment on your work..i duly obliged,and you felt need to be hurt,and attacked the response you had earlier asked people help you identify your work..as for being presumptious about your past.you identified it many times yourself on radio,that it was rough past..you decided to reinvent yourself..as for being arrogant,well its simply reflecting your words and your shared journy..your in great pain,hitting out at yourself..and quite frankly,misplaced anger...if your unhappy being margret,and choose to be figmant of escape,because you cant deal with your past,your choice.you can hide if you so choose.but dont take your anger out on those who know you as margret,those who refuse to be part of your escape...sorry i cant share the few that adore your work

i pondered on your request,ref/Consider this, maybe there is part of you that wants to free yourself from the rigidity of your controlled thinking and way of living that gets jangled when you interact with me........again your totaly reflecting yourself back on me....intresting word you use,control....i have stated nothing but truth/fact..your margret,and created leela and then going step further,believing your leela JAMIESON...some would say lost touch with reality,in great pain attacking a truth...why,why is so painful margret...nothing rigid in reminding you who you are...you have blotted out margret,and your past..reinvented yourself...many believe in simple basics,regarding 3d,and incarnations..responsabiltys we have perhaps,with karma and soul familys working togeather...sometimes trauma brings a reaction,instead of learning,and looking many times again at ourselves,the situations that brought great pain with new eyes.we embrace the journy,new eyes,see everything different...the journy is on earth,a 3d journy away from spirit,our home perhaps,and embrace the tough but beautiful journy of duality...many fall,and run further away from the journy,take new identities,to escape...perhaps ypou should ponder on that...perhaps were at great turning point...perhaps the new journy will look after itself...perhaps when you reach place of true essance,at one with yourself,you will realise no one needs help.gift you could give them is to simply ground out the exspierence,see everything with new eyes...the reason perhaps there is no flow in your life,your book which is taken 6 years to complete...was always just diary,reflection of your life..your time as leela...if SPIRIT wanted that book out,it wouldhave been finished after 6 months....ponder on that..why no flow,why so long....questions for you,look at you...AND TO WORK OUT FOR YOURSELF....YES..WHEN PENNY DROPS,yousee it.....i take my leave now....dont like energy on this page,i am not your punch bag,..healthy thinking would see,re reading my intial honest true response to your work....time look at you,alwayys you namaste...i feel your pain,i feel your fear
