Seven of Christmas

I have to title it this way to manage a haiku’s first line of five syllables (eleven will present a challenge!) “Seven swans a swimming” traditionally represent the old charismatic gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord.

Seven of Christmas
Sages of long past ages
Renew our deep fire

Digging into ancient wisdom thrusts us into the eternal now.

Okay Boomer - that I am. But not one of them know-it-all ones! Still learning that the more I know, the more I have yet to learn. What I do know, however, I know well.

  1. I like how that phrasing works and love that last line of the haiku. I’m always captivated by the American Sentence as a form and you have given a contemplative view in this one that inspires.
