Gibran's Little Book of Love
compiled by Suheil Bushrui
ISBN 1-85168-517-0
Published January 2007 - Hardcover - 54 pages - $9.95

"Love, for Gibran, was both a holistic state of being and a deeply spiritual experience, a 'sacred mystery' that remains forever wordless".  Kahlil Gibran has long been known for his profound words about love, his feelings about love, and his moving descriptions and poetry about love.  How sweet it would be if more people gave love a chance and learned to understand it a little better.  In the introduction, it says, "For Gibran, love is the key to all things".  I do wonder how he would feel about the horrors of hate in the world right now, especially in the Middle East.  (He hails from Lebanon.)  His words move you both physically and spiritually to take note of them.  Ordinarily I don't like reading poetry, for the simple reason that I also write poetry (although I wouldn't dream of calling myself a poet) and don't actually like to be swayed one way or the other about how to write.  I make an exception for Gibran.
Gibran (1883-1931) spent most of his life in the United States.
Conclusion - Very moving and touching.
