    As Scout Finch said Life is sometimes uglier than we think but, reading Gibran makes me believe that it is also better than I hoped for.

    ''Spare me the political events and power struggles, as the whole earth is my homeland and all men are my fellow countrymen.''
    (Khalil Gibran)

  • Beverly Morra (6/7/2015 2:10:00 PM)

    I have two favorite poets, Kahlil Gibran, and Dr. Maya Angelou, they compose some of the most heart felt works that touched me since I was very young, giving me the desire to put my thoughts on paper or anything else I could find handy splashing the thoughts before they were gone, very hard to recall them in proper sync.
    I have hard time writing with my small Kindle, my eyesight not to sharp, clicking on the letters is terrible so excuse my boo boo's, hope to send in a few, my best to all you poets, lovers of Words with magic.

  • Stefan Sanmare (4/15/2014 8:25:00 PM)

    Not just a poet. One of the world's 10 leading writers, if you look at the depth of the meaning of words. Several interesting jumps in his development. Christian, but Gibran became more of an universalist after the meetings with 'Abdu'l-Bahá (and wrote things like I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of One religion, and it is the spirit.) . This should have occured the summer of 1912, since Abdu'l-Bahá arrived in New York City on 11 April 1912, after declining an offer of passage on the RMS Titanic, telling the Bahá'í believers, instead, to donate the money for the first class ticket to charity. It is not known what these two men from the same region of the world actually spoke about. But 'Abdu'l-Bahás decision (or divine intervention) to not travel with Titanic led to a meeting that changed Gibran and his writing, as well as it allowed 'Abdu'l-Bahá to survive and make a sect to a new world religion.

    I always print out his poem about children and hand it to parents.... He had such great ideas...love all his writing.

Best Poem of Khalil Gibran

On Pain

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses
your understanding.

Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its
heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.

And could you keep your heart in wonder at the
daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem
less wondrous than your joy;

And you would accept the seasons of your heart,
even as you have always accepted the seasons that
pass over your fields.

And you would watch with serenity through the
winters of your grief.

Much of your pain is self-chosen. ...

Friendship Ixx

And a youth said, "Speak to us of Friendship."

Your friend is your needs answered.

He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.

And he is your board and your fireside.

For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.
