A series of essays on life, love, relationships and personal philosophy. Written in a lyrical poetic style seldom seen in todays literature. Less of a "How To" manual popular today but more of a guide to meditating or contemplating life and how to reach peace with it.

The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
Is a living manual for every human; not the only one! IT Awakened in me a desire to live at the highest level.
The older I get the truer and deeper the principles he elucidates so expressively resonate in my soul.

Poetry is Wisdom
This book is a must have for anyone who considers themselves philosophical. Kahlil is full of wisdom and wonder. Read the poems over and over again and you'll find something you haven't seen before.
