As the rain continues to fall, I am curled up indoors with the spiritual writings of Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet, a timeless collection of poetic essays infused with love and mysticism. I find comfort in these timeless words of wisdom, particularly in those poems I included when honouring significant life events. On Children, a passage that was read aloud during each child's dedication ceremony. On Death, a poem I delivered at my mother's funeral. On Marriage, a passage I shared during both daughters' wedding celebrations. In a rich and gentle manner, Gibran expresses profound truths that my heart and soul recognize, just as countless other hearts and souls have for generations. Heavenly.
