Homage to the Prophet ~ Collaboration with Fre’de’ric G. Martin

“When love beckons to you, follow him,

Though his ways are hard and steep”  (Khalil Gibran, “The Prophet”)




He stood on the mountain, exalted

And he wished for an audience to rhapsodize

About all he had seen

All he had learned


Grasping harmony in cacophony

Fighting for peace as wars dehumanize

And pushing for a truce

Between silence and tumult


He wore the tattered vestiges of pain

So delicately on his psyche

As his cloak of love and brilliance

Billowed from his soul


And even winter rains fell under his spell

For he was a maker of rainbows

Who had to teach the bright colors of wisdom

Passion, Mindfulness and Freedom


And they gathered

And they listened

This giant amongst them

Answered every question


And the people rose as one…

As a pregnant woman smiled to him, he said:

The Soul and her baby look alike

Children of Love only have to get ready


To be born



Lorrie & Fre’de’ric G. Martin ❤
