At night the watchmen of the city say,“Beauty shall rise with the dawn from theeast.”And at noontide the toilers and the way-farers say, “We have seen her leaning overthe earth from the windows of the sunset.”In winter say the snow-bound, “She shallcome with the spring leaping upon the hills.”And in the summer heat the reapers say,“We have seen her dancing with the autumnleaves, and we saw a drift of snow in herhair.” –Kahlil Gibran, from The Prophet
Sadly, we’ve reached the final Love Notes 38 post. This round was a little of what my soul needed. I am in a tough place (emotionally), and Suzette’s well-prepared packages offered a bit of respite.
Love Notes 38, Prompt 3: There is beauty…
For this prompt, Suzette shared an excerpt of “On Beauty” [above] by Kahlil Gibran, one of my favorite poets.
There is beauty in every facet of our day-to-day lives. The trick is to be watchful and ready to see it and embrace it when it happens. –Suzette R.
There’s beauty in folding a freshly washed load of laundry. There’s beauty in shadows cast by the setting sun. There’s beauty in holding a favorite book. There’s beauty in loving. There’s beauty in aging skin. There’s beauty in every landscape and vista. There is beauty all around when there’s love at home. –Suzette R.
