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?

    Gibran has a Strong Soul
    That jetted from east to west
    And will continue to jet
    To clear many clouds in the Western skies
    In spite being not his mother’s tongue.

    How about if your read
    His verses of His mother’s langue…
    That will keep you sharing his soulfulness
    With Him in his phrases,
    That He filled amazingly long before
    He left the Eastern paradise. (Report) Reply

    As Kahlil also said - Reason & Passion... the rudder & sails of seafaring soul... so...
    Sail your smile into the air; it will reach and enliven me!
    Breathe your fragrance into the air; it will sustain me!
    Where are you, me beloved?
    Oh, how great is Love!
    And how little am I! (Report) Reply

    This one is my favorite. I have found three of his books so far and they spell his name Kahlil Gibran instead of Khalil Gibran. I wasn't really into poetry until I discovered Gibran's writings. Now I'm in love and becoming quickly addicted. (Report) Reply

    This poem really touched my feeling for I do love someone and I am very sure he loves me too just that I know he will never admit it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
