Dec 15, 2007

it was amazing
Recommended for: children all.
Read in January, 1987

I think,
his writings
are gently soporific for me.
such an ebb and flow,
a rhythmic rocking.
A sense of calm for a haring mind,
engaging heart and soul
as they are read.

This book in hand
is older than any i can find on this site
beaten and battered long before it came my way.
has an old inscription inside,
a gift of love given long ago.

the giver tells their favorite pieces.
most folks who know his writings have one or two.
the book the prophet is known well
and well loved by many.

My own cravings tonight
brought on by this wild wind,
falling ice,
and the crshing waves,
led me to search for "The Tempest",
my own hearts favorite.
always read with new eyes.

It's been a long time
since I have read any of his work
and just a little,
it seems,
can make a person
hunger to hear more.

Queen I definately feel what you are saying. Gibran has an air of romanticism also. I read an excerpt from "The Prophet" called Friendship. It had me in tears and truly expressed how I feel about friendship. His writing make me smile both inside and out. :D
