Spirit of the wilderness

Yearning for the open spaces, 
Longing for endless sky
I seek out the holy places: 
Desert canyon, mountains high,
Where my soul is free to fly.

And I feel a light is glowing
Deep within me like a flame,
Hear a song within me growing,
Hear the spirit call my name
And am happy that I came.

This is true and well expressed, Agnes. There are indeed some places where the spirit is calmed and refreshed, where stresses are eased. // Barry

Wonderful portrayal of something that you like doing. Mine is not about nature so I hope I can make it seem as good as yours for Sara!!

This is a beautiful and poetical delivery of this delightful form, Agnes. I yearn for such open wilderness, considering that our once beautiful island is quickly losing its natural allure, falling victim to 'progress' and exploiters. Regards // paul
