From the acclaimed author of The Prophet comes a unique and moving collection of poems and parables. Twenty-five in all, they bring forth teachings on morality, spirituality and compassion in a way that only Gibran is capable. Although each entry is short, they evoke thoughtful reflection for those aware of his deeper meanings. Sometimes it may seem there is message to an entry, at least on the surface, but the reader is being challenged to reflect a bit, by a true master, Gibran, before the insights come. The book is short, but what the reader may create and experience as a result of its reading could fill volumes. The author, also an artist, has included five black and white illustrations to accompany his work.
