The poems of Mr. Lababidi ( Poet. Aphorist. Seeker ) take us back to pure poetry with their imagery, metaphors and deep sensations. We read about "the difficult doors of opportunity" which "suddenly yield at the key"; and "the intricate network of noise ". The feelings in the poems are superb. sensed more and more on re-reading.
A wonderful book of poetry...

Master aphorist Yahia Lababidi brings his acute observations on the human condition to poetry. This book is a must for fans of Rumi, Hafiz or Gibran.
