Behold

*








I existed












from eternity














and













behold












I am here













and I shall












exist till the












end of time











for my being












has no end













Kahlil Gibran

  2. I was happy to see "a hazy moon" on my reader this morning, Delwyn! A sense of the "eternal existance of single unison" was what your photos gave to me! We all are one and the same, it would mean world peace, if everyone believed it!

    Hope the New Year finds you comfortably settled in your new home and rested from all that moving involves.

  7. Dear Delwyn,

    It has been much too long since I have left a comment, although I have been continuously following you, enjoying your pictures, words and walks. I consider getting to know you this year as one on my blessings ~ you truly help me take a moment to breathe ~ and to appreciate. Thank you!

    On my list of many books yet to read is Kahlil Gibran's "The Prophet." I find that as I stumble across it excerpts that I always take pause, even before knowing from where the quote came. My favorite: "In the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed." That, in a nutshell, also sums up how I feel when I visit you and your Hazy Moon.

    Wishing you and yours a wonderful and exciting new year, and I look forward to continuing to explore the dew drops with you!

  9. Happy Christmas indeed, Delwyn! What a treat to have you pop up in my sidebar with another beautiful post. I always find myself pausing for reflection either through your words or your photos... and often both :)

  10. Hi, Delwyn--

    It's good to hear from you here at Hazy Moon again. Thanks for posting this.

    Gibran's view of some permanently existing entity is decidedly non-Buddhist, and a good reminder for me to hold my ontological views lightly. (I try!) I wonder if anyone would like to comment on what they imagine KG might say in regard to what the "I" in this poem signifies.... God?

  17. Hi Friends

    I am back at the old house doing some cleaning and have access to my computer. I made my last post from the new place with my iphone!

    I hope to get a new computer set up next week and then I will be able to come and visit you. I am taking little peeks at some of your blogs on my iphone and have missed your cheer and activities.
    Thanks you for your kind wishes and friendship over my past year of blogging.

    Happy days

  20. I am not sure if I can say "Amen" to that, but I'll say it anyway. The words are too beautiful to mess them up with other words.

    Happy New Year, dear hazy moon. May your light continue to shine as brightly (or hazily) as ever.

  21. These words have such an ancient echo of truth about them, such familiarity.

    "Behold" is one of my very favorite words.

  28. Kahlil Gibran - now there is someone who is worth reading again and again and again! Happy New Year Delwyn.

  29. I appreciate this juxtaposition of eternal and change by paring the words of the poem with ever changing colors of the same photo. Happy wishes on your move! I was so suprised to read that you had moved from the home you described so lovingly and had lived in for so long. I am sure your new home is thrilling and fresh. I've lived in the same home since I was pregnant with my first child at 21 - almosst 29 years. I constantly feel the disconnect of truly loving the roots and history of every inch of this place, and yearning for a fresh perspective. I'd love to hear about your feelings on your move.

  33. Delwyn, thank you for your marvelous posts...I always enjoy the time I spend with them.
    To address Dan Gurney: it has been my understanding that Gibran met Abdu'l-Baha, the son of Baha'u'llah who was Prophet -Founder of the Baha'i Faith, and believed, incorrectly, that he was also a Prophet. Gibran was quite influenced by Baha'i scripture, adapting it in his own writing. You should find "Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah" or "Prayers and Meditations" by Baha'u'llah in a public library or go to
    http://bahai.net/ for more information about the Baha'i Faith.

  35. Hi, Anon--

    Thank you for that information about Gibran's contact with Abduh'l Baha. I was not aware of, but am not surprised to learn this; Gibran seems to have been influenced by the mystics of his time.
