Poetic Reduction

openOpen up your heart
To life’s exciting journey
Water quenching thirst

Walk with briskly grace
The mindful human age
Those pyramids not yet climbed

Music for the soul
Keep the learning fire alive
Thoughts until the death
Those dancing arms and legs jive
Time keeps marching on

My seven words to live by: Walk, heart, life, water, music, fire, death. Seems good enough for anyone since all of these words are universal. I can’t imagine a language with just seven words being effective or interesting but if striving to understand one another is the goal, there’s no reason not to try it; it would be very poetic. The dictionary makers would have a much easier job, though creating definitions would be next to impossible – I suppose pictures would do…a pictionary.


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Seven Wonders.”

Khalil Gibran once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words. What would your seven words be?
