Unbounded life

My contribution to Totally optional prompts - Birds and bonds

Gliding into the clouds
flapping the wide wings,
Exploring the distant lands
A life so unbound

Roam around the world
Reach for the distant skies
No boundaries, no limits
A life not to belong

Love and care for the nestlings,
snuggling in its cozy nest
A harbinger of growth
A life so worthwhile

Vast blue oceans,
New unknown territories
flying with no measure
Experience meant to treasure.

Your poem is very nice - I love this stanza:


"Vast blue oceans,
New unknown territories
flying with no measure
Experience meant to treasure."

But they still come and built a nest. That can't go away.

Thanks everyone!

@Gautami: I came to know of many interesting prompts, thanks to your blog. Reg the nest part, what I meant was that the nest is not permanent or binding. The birds migrate and build new nests.

I guess there's nothing quite so free as a bird in flight.
