Reading The Prophet By Kahil Gibran
Painting - Watercolour
Watercolour of a woman planning her wedding - the faces of all the interested onlookers having their say while she dreams of the wedding day, her honeymoon in Venice and her future.She-is-reading about marriage from the book "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran "Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow."
