Poetry Sunday-Limitless






I am alive, free

on the wing of a bird flying high.

Their song lifts me

as it breaks against the early light,

bouncing through newly formed leaves.



I ride it, with the wind

blowing the clouds,

swirling over water seeing a face I did not know.

Feeling a soul lighter dancing on the ripples,

a giggle bubbles up and fills my heart.



The day is limitless

and endless to explore,

each not repeating only this one-

this day, this adventure.

This moment is enough!

This poem was written in early May last year, and updated a bit this year.  As we enter May, I like to celebrate the whole month.  Why, you ask?  Well May is my birth month (end of May the birthday), and with it also being a fabulous spring month with flowers everywhere and warmer weather, what’s not to celebrate.




I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.  Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.

I am also linking in with the I Heart Macro meme hosted by Laura@Shine The Divine that happens every Saturday, and with Judith@Lavender Cottage who is hosting Mosaic Monday.  



If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs. 



Special Note:  The dawn shots were taken in spring, and show how beautiful each day really is….the last picture is of a female cardinal singing in the new day.


I leave you with a few additional words about celebrating the limitless days of spring.  I welcome you to download the photo and share it.

    With your birthday at the end of the month, Donna, that means you’re a Gemini, as am I. HA! We have more in common than we realize, I bet. 🙂 Enjoy your “limitless” wings and fly with the wind!

    • May 4, 2015    

      Oh that’s right…. I do remember now we are both Gemini….oh we do indeed have much in common…I always laugh when I know there are more Gemini present in the same place…we tend to stand out! 🙂 Enjoy your birth month too Ginnie!

    Each and every day is a celebration of freedom – if one is blessed to possess it, and for that alone, each day is a blessing.

    Lovely write, Donna!
