Today’s Quote by Khalil Gibran

Kindness is like snow 

It beautifies everything it covers

Khalil Gibran

Good morning my dear friends.

I’m glad to share with you my favorite of Khalil Gibran’s quotes. Khalil Gibran was a Lebanese American writer and poet. I consider myself blessed to have read his famous book ‘The Prophet’. A fellow student lent me the book when I was convalescing from a long illness in London.

When I look back, he was the kindest person I met during my student days in England.

First Snow – A Haiku by Anita Bacha

First snow without you 

Whiteout burns my eyes

People make me cry

Frozen Rose Garden – A Haiku by Anita Bacha

Frozen rose garden 

Silent miles of snow whitens

Days without evenings 

Anita Bacha

Decades ago, a young woman arrived in England to pursue academic and professional studies. She came from a tropical island in the Indian Ocean where the sun shines all through the two tropical seasons, summer and winter.

A white cotton ball fell on the tip of her nose ,one December morning while she hurried to Earl’s Court tube station on her way to Lincoln’s Inn at Chancery Lane.

That first ball was followed by uncontrollable number of snow flakes. She cried with joy!That young woman was me.

It was the first time I saw snow in my life!

Now I enjoy writing about snow and winter.

Happy Holidays!
