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.

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.

  1. Yes, sometimes one moment IS enough; and we must enjoy it as we experience it…..live in the present!

  2. I think a day in spring when nature’s dressed in its light green dress, I think that’s when a moment is enough.

  3. Thank you Donna. I read this poem a few times. It’s a meditation as well as a celebration. It connected me to the moment. Made me want to go outside and fly with the song of the birds. Beautiful poem.

  4. your photos are lovely; and this limitless freedom expressed in your poem, quite appealing; i’m happy you dropped by to read mine

    much love…

  5. “This moment is enough” is such an important thing to remember but often such a difficult thing to live by in practice!

  6. ” ride it, with the wind, blowing the clouds,” I find this so freeing. Beautiful poem and outstanding pictures!!! Wishing you a wonderful day!

  7. Your beautiful poem makes me feel alive, tingling in the spring coolness. I love it Donna.

    The B day was my Sister’s 50th, the fire dancer was a worker on the farm…it was unexpected and amazing!


  8. Lovely words and soothing marmalade skies.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Donna.

  9. 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!

    1. 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!

  10. 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!


  11. Donna, that is simply lovely! I was drawn in by the photo, but treated to beautiful verse. I appreciate people who can write poetry. My mind only seems to make limericks. 🙁

  12. Hello Donna, I love your poem. I would love to be a bird.. I think you should celebrate your birthday the whole month of May..
    Enjoy your day!
