The Daily Prompt: Seven Wonders

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

eternal freedom


Open wide your heart

abundance is yours, accept

always be thankful

  1. 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.

    1. 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 🙂
