Let My Soul Flee

Oh let my soul flee
To the purple mountains
Where poetry breathes—
Where dawn’s shadows
Move silently with the sun.
Let my eyes feast on
Dew drops and Scottish broom
With its golden bloom.
Let the fresh scent of conifers
Satiate and restore my soul
As it soars with the wayward wind
Where verses resplendent 
And timeless intertwine
With the glorious divine.

    I really enjoyed that line, "let my soul flee"-- ah how one really feels that way sometimes, Connie and you've written this with grace -- poetry does serve as one's sanctuary and also have these deeper connections, so true. Beautifully written-- thank you so much for passing by my poem, I'm so sorry for not being active at PFT, I will rectify that soon, and post a poem or 2! I'm still here (as in physically)...sending you hugs <3 sorry, didn't know, saw comments below, praying for your surgery

    Scotch Broom was a real pain in Washington State and gets in the way of everything else. Guess you could say it was a little on the wild side. Keep up with great poems. I am over 300 poems now and God is doing a great job motivating me to write more. I'm in the mood for scotch, simply because your poems are near me. Jim Horn

    Thank you Matthew. Scottish broom also known as Scotch broom native to Europe also grows wild all over the USA. Scotch broom is an upright shrub in the pea family, with bright golden yellow flowers. They are really beautiful. Aloha, Connie
