This week’s Write Tribe Prompt is the 7x7x7x7 prompt. Here is how it goes.
Grab the 7th book from your bookshelf.
Open it up to page 7.
Pinpoint the 7th sentence on the page.
Begin a poem/a piece of prose that begins with that sentence
Limit it in length to 7 lines/7 sentences.
The seventh book on my shelf is Lucy Diamond’s Summer with my Sister. And the seventh sentence on the seventh page is
‘Not taking her eyes from the monitor.’
Not taking her eyes from the monitor, Shobha yelled, ‘Maya, could you get the door, please!’
Silence. The door bell rang again, more urgently this time.
She would have to get it herself. Self absorbed teenagers!
Opening the door, she saw Maya. Her clothes were covered with blood.
‘Mum, I had to run out, a car hit him’,explained Maya, cradling her new cotton-lined laundry basket, in which nestled a tiny pup, badly injured and whimpering.
