"A writer must never be short of ideas."
-Gabriel Agreste- (Fictional character- Miraculous)


There are 8 pretty petals

in a beautiful leather flower

And Santa has 8 amazing reindeer

Stop signs have 8 sides

And the wisdom tooth is the 8th tooth

8 is the atomic number

Of oxygen, the element we need to survive

A computer byte has 8 bits

And well, it takes 8 minutes

for the sun's light to reach us

The solar system has 8 planets

YOU are the 8th wonder of the world

And there are 8 lines in a triolet

There are 8 letters in 'Precious'

And you are that to me

I love you to eight-turned horizontally

And beyond

8 is not MY lifepath number...

(It's 3, if you wanna know)

@Afra, this is beautiful. My fav line was you are the 8th wonder of the world. That made my day.And also, an octagon has 8 lines. 8 turned horizontally is infinity and that's why it's lucky, according to my opinion. <3
