    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)

    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.

    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.

Best Poem of Khalil Gibran

A Lover's Call Xxvii

Where are you, my beloved? Are you in that little
Paradise, watering the flowers who look upon you
As infants look upon the breast of their mothers?


Or are you in your chamber where the shrine of
Virtue has been placed in your honor, and upon
Which you offer my heart and soul as sacrifice?


Or amongst the books, seeking human knowledge,
While you are replete with heavenly wisdom?


Oh companion of my soul, where are you? Are you
Praying in the temple? Or calling Nature in the
Field, haven of your dreams?


Are you in the ...

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.
