Poetry Sunday-I Am




I Am…


a kind heart, a ray of light,

a soul awake reaching new heights.



a word of truth, a harmonious sound,

a soft step protecting all that surrounds.



a searching eye across fields of gold,

young in mind, a body old.



a blissful life, a softening touch,

I am… and that is enough.

I am adding a bit of poetry to my Creative Sundays.  I am combining photos, collages and verse.  I hope you enjoy these posts.  This one was inspired by a challenge to think of ourselves as we look outside ourselves and observe who we are.


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






Special Note:  The monochrome photos are those of Hardy Hibiscus.  In the Language of Flowers, Hibiscus (Mallow) means delicate beauty or sweet disposition.





I leave you with a bit of a sentiment about enthusiasm.   I hope you can capture your own enthusiasm in something creative.  Feel free to download the photo and share.

    1. Oh Susie I am blushing…you are so very sweet to say so. It means a lot as this was a very personal poem that flowed out from my soul. I hope you are well these days…I am thinking of you daily and keeping you in my most precious place of hugs!

  1. Hi Donna, I like your black and white photos – very nicely done. Indeed enthusiasm and energy are important and help keep us going in the right direction. Have a great week!

    1. Thanks Beth…so glad you enjoyed the pics…I find enthusiasm deep in my cells does bring so much joy to everything I do…I hope you have a wonderful week in your garden.

  2. This poem has a very meditative feel, Donna. Yes…if we live as if “I am” is enough, our lives will be much happier, I think. So glad to see you in Poetry Pantry!

    1. Thank you Mary…I am so happy to have joined in finally. Ah I suppose all the meditating I have been doing has spilled over to my verse…lovely. So glad you stopped by today Mary!!

  3. I am taken with the poem Donna, it truly is lovely. The hardy hibiscus is putting on a great show in our neighbourhood too, I don’t have one but enjoy the ones around.
    Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

    1. Oh Judith thank you so much…I actually have one plant that is late to bloom and I hope with all the very cool weather that it does bloom soon. Such an exotic looking plant in the garden.
