I haven’t tried the Daily Prompt at WordPress before, but somehow today it touched me, so I’m having a try. Michelle W. says . . .
‘Khalil Gibran once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words. What would your seven words be?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us SEVEN.’
I decided to haiku, here are my attempts.
By seeking inside
first nurture and love yourself
then love you will attract
Bursting from my skin
searing, I must be alive
all consuming pain
Tiniest new growth
changing each new day
girl child brings me joy
Stillness of the dawn
a golden hour full of peace
before the world awakes
Never far away
somewhere someone nears death
may it be timely
No more oppression
human struggle for an end
Open wide your heart
abundance is yours, accept
always be thankful

This is beyond words. You have written a fabulous Haiku. I still cannot understand how to do it.
I have tried – believe me. I will just enjoy yours. This is a masterpiece, Gilly. I am so very proud to have read and enjoyed it.
Oh you are a dear, thank you! Haiku at my basic level is easy. All you need is five syllables for the first line, seven for the next and five for the last. To be true to its original fom it should be about the natural world I believe. Just think how well it would work in one of your nurturing posts 🙂
Sis, you have expressed fabulous thoughts with excellent brevity of Haiku. We must give you the Haiku master award. Just plain beautiful.
Thank you from LG LG!
OMG that’s too funny… LG to LG bahahaha
You have crafted an astonishing Haiku. Takes my breath away.
You’re sweet, but its very, very basic!
Basic sometimes is the best way. 😉
Truly lovely, Gilly — and very insightful.
and you’re very kind!
treasures Gilly, thank you for your wisdom and skill!

Bless you 🙂
a pattern for life, and in all sorts of ways. Very moving and heartfelt.
Such a beautiful and special post Gilly! Joy speaks to me even more than the others 🙂
I wish to embrace this 7 words today as well. Words that make us all human. Living, hoping, dreaming, loving… Thanks. Have a blessed day.
This is so filled with the warm wisdom of a life well lived. Really lovely.
Cleverly put together, Gilly. I was more inclined to Pain and then Love. Mad skills, mad respect.
Gilly, these are so beautiful. 🙂
