An early Song of Ffraed article from my dragon healing journey with Y Ddraig Ffraed – The Ffraed Project. First published on the subscribers’ blog on 17th July 2016.
It was warm, a tiny breeze, butterflies flitted through the rampant hedges, song birds accompanied the bees’ kazoos and I was picking my way through tangles of prolific brambles and nettles, on my way to rendezvous with Y Ddraig again. I knew where She’d be, at the crossroads of paths where I’d left Her weeks ago. She’d made off across a verdant pasture to the other side of a hump in the land. I’d have liked to have gone with Her but I needed to gain permission from the landholder first.
Instead I had tracked Her remotely to a hawthorn in a fairy hill embankment by an ancient llan. There’d once stood, possibly for thousands of years, a tiny village here; its gorgeous fragrant roses that once decorated walls and gardens, now rambling through the May.
