Take time to dream today, for our dreams bring magic into our everyday…..

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair – Khalil Gibran

    Love it. Took a few moments away from work to daydream. Always important.

    All of creation invites us to dream–how could we possibly be so ungracious as to turn down such a party invitation?

    Talk about a way with words “…winds long to play with your hair.” Blessings – Maxi

    This reminds me of the movie, Pretty Woman. When Julia Roberts takes Richard Gere to the park to walk barefoot in the grass, to lay on a blanket and share a picnic. And it’s exactly what I did this past weekend with my special someone.
    Thank you Jane for these ‘nature’ reminders.
    Love you!

    This reminds me of one of my Twitter poems: “walk the earth with bare feet” and my poem “Being Naked” http://agapintheclouds.wordpress.com/2012/01/31/being-naked/

    I’ve seen Khalil Gibran’s name mentioned a few times, who or what was/is he, Jane?

      Khalil Gibran; born Gubran Khalil Gubran, January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931, was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer. Born in the town of Bsharri in modern-day Lebanon. As a young man he emigrated with his family to the United States where he studied art and began his literary career. He is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose. The book sold well despite a cool critical reception, and became extremely popular in the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu.

      Bless Wikipedia which is where I lifted this text from. My brother gave me The Prophet years ago and I love it.

      Oh Jenna you made me laugh out loud…love it…it’s gorgeous outside here today and I am trying to get my web site programmed! Note the word try….I keep thinking ‘Oh I’ll just pop out and do that and stand in the sunshine for a wee while’…these actions are translating into me getting precisely nowhere with my web site but the joy of being out there has inspired some lilting poetry…love to you and your pony (which I am sure looks very attractive) x

    One of my favorite lines from The Prophet.

    I love Gibran, Jane. The Prophet is one of my favourite books and I always have it on the front page of my Kindle πŸ™‚

      Hello Angela…close friends were married recently and their wedding reading was Khalil’s passage on love. Beautiful and very wise. Lovely to hear from you and I applauded your poem for World Peace, the energy generated from that post was great…love to you x
