The 7x7x7x7 Writing Prompt :
Grab the 7th book from your bookshelf. Open it up to page 7. Pinpoint the 7th sentence on the page. Begin a poem that begins with that sentence and limit it in length to 7 lines.
The seventh book on my bookshelf happened to be Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch. The seventh sentence on the seventh page turned out to be short. I heaved a sigh of relief and hauled it out of its bracket.
Because some people are willing to actually listen
It is time for the sun to rise
To open the doors of your being
And let its warmth thaw
Your loneliness chilled heart
Let life flow in joyous warbles
And your voice be heard again.
Thank you for blowing this trumpet in my ear Corinne. It cleared away a few cobwebs…
How about teasing your brain with this challenge? Comin’ out to play…?
PS: If you haven’t read the Conversations With God trilogy, please do. It answered a lot of questions for me, perhaps it will for you too. I recommend it highly.
