The prophet speaks

Kahlil Gibran

Here is the most beautiful poem from the political rebel and literary hero, Kahlil Gibran. I love his description of God, in this short, strange poem; a benevolent force of nature. So wonderfully tender. I hope you like it! Love Susie. x

And if you know God be not then a solver of
       riddles
Rather look upon you and you shall see him playing
       with your children
And look into space; and you shall see Him walking
     in the cloud, stretching His arms in the lightning
     and descending in rain.
You shall see Him smiling in flowers, then rising and
     waving His hands in trees. 

Kahlil Gibran 1883 - 1931
