Notice of absence from FredPeyer
Would like to let everyone (who might actually be interested) know that I will be gone from the site for a while due to work and time constraints. But since you all got along famously before I appeared, I have no doubt you will be getting along famously without me! :-)

  • Louis Gibbs

    Seven is considered a sacred number by those with knowledge of ethereal numerology. It is not a coincidence that it appears in so many ways to us, as you have demonstrated well in this poem, Fred. Interesting write!

    • FredPeyer

      Thanks Louis, I am not into numerology. Just observed that the number seven seems to appear quite often. Will read up on it now that you told me.

    • myself and me

      Very interesting observation. What are you doing in your ID photo?

      • FredPeyer

        Thanks m&m! I am climbing up one of the two palm trees in front of my house. Figured that if you cannot climb up the ladder of success, you might as well climb up a palm tree! The view from the top is always better than the view from the bottom. And if you are on top of the tree, you cannot get hit by a falling coconut! I can be a near-religious experience too! :-)
        Ahh, just kidding around!!! But I am really climbing up that palm tree.

        • myself and me

          It remind me of a quote "Don't climb up there too close to God,
          He might shake the tree.

        • orchidee

          A fine write Fred.

          • FredPeyer

            Thanks orchi! Forgot to mention the seven lives of a cat. You think KP has seven lives too???

            • orchidee

              Argghh yes, each of them a hundred years! lol.

            • Goldfinch60

              Seven appears so many times in our lives but you are write the ONE is the most important.

              • FredPeyer

                And your selflessness and love for your wife prove it!

              • Goldfinch60

                Very nice! I liked it a lot.

                • FredPeyer

                  Thanks Ras, it is a little departure from my usual style.

                • tepo

                  another seven to sum this up
                  great ending Fred

                  • FredPeyer

                    Thanks tepo! Yes, the magnificent seven should have been in there too. Another one I missed is 7-up, or the 7 lives of a cat. Once you start thinking, there is more and more. Amazing how often that 7 appears.

                    • tepo

                      Poor american cats
                      The UK ones have 9 lol
                      Good to see you granda

                    • Santita

                      Fred, I am pretty sure cats are said to have 9 lives! Lol! Anywho, I love this piece! You suprised me with the end! I love when a poem does that! Well done:)

                      • FredPeyer

                        Thanks Santi! The one is really important to me since I am a confirmed, card carrying one-woman man!

                      • Accidental Poet

                        There's also lucky seven. Great write Fred.

                        • FredPeyer

                          Thanks, AP, and that would be me!
