    “Anatomy of the 7”

    Consider the 7 for one second
    Maybe 7 seconds or more
    7 is a number
    One could truly adore

    Over 7 sacred hills
    We all must travel
    Before strict Father Time
    Drops his comin’ home gavel

    7 seas, 7 continents
    7 wonders of the world
    7 layers of skin
    On every beautiful girl

    Yeah, 7 is the symbol
    Of perfection you see
    There 7 layers of bark
    On every full-grown tree

    There are 7 glorious colors
    In the prismatic scheme
    Then there’s that 7-year itch
    You know what I mean

    Atmosphere, stratosphere
    Yeah, there’ 7 of those
    7 holes in your head
    Counting the 2 in your nose

    They’re 7 whole notes
    On the musical scale
    7 fathoms to the ocean
    Where swims the whale

    7 days in creation
    Where all was manifested
    Worked 6 days that week
    On the 7th He rested

    They say the 7th sign
    Signals the end
    So think before committing
    That 7th deadly sin

    Consider your deeds
    At least 7 times 7
    You might wind up
    In that 7th heaven

    The 7th Poet

    Whoa, poet, you mastered this scribe of seven. The many meanings behind and the multitudes of creations that involve that number. Your pen must be tired. Take a bow. :bowdown:

    There are also….Seven Heavenly Virtues that might help one reach that 7th Heaven you speak of…
    Faith, Hope, Charity, Fortitude, Justice, Temperance, and Prudence :toast:

    The Japanese believe in seven Gods of Luck and celebrate birth
    upon the seventh day and mourn death upon the seventh day and week…

    The revelation of seven, biblically, is endless…it is tied to and reverenced
    within nearly every culture east and west, one of the very few things within
    this universe we agree upon.


    Don’t know that I ever mentioned it…but seven is my favorite number… :wink: seriously..., always has been.
    Our existence is infinitely connected to this number…
    And to think…There was also a 7th Poet and I’ve had the pleasure of meeting
    and reading him. :read:

    Magnificent Revelation Here…continue on scribe, I’m loving it…

    You continue to grow by leaps and bounds and firmly plant your feet in this family and elsewhere as a true master of words. I loved this piece.
