Best Poem of Daniel Trevelyn Joseph

Kahlil Gibran

It was Vidwans who wrote to me
When I was Joint Secretary Planning Department
Referring to Kahlil Gibran’s
Being nonplussed on somebody
In the marketplace
Asking him, “Who are you? ”
That was 26 years ago.

It took me a few more years
To wander along to Tiruvannamalai
With Babu my brother-in-law
And start reading Ramana Maharshi
And his japa, “Who am I? ”

Reading Cordelia’s Nothing
Overwhelmed by the play

Read the full of Kahlil Gibran
