Just One Great Prophet

Just One Great Prophet

If we were smarter, it would have been 
enough that just one great Prophet 
would have to make a personal appearance on Earth. 

He or She probably could have easily fixed some 
important things forever,
written a book that really gave us the total lowdown
and that no one would dare edit. 

God in human form, 
could have shown us the herbs to cure any illness 
humans would ever know.

But looks like it does not work that way. 

          "He kissed me as he has a few times before when I have been in trouble, with a tenderness beyond dreams, as God might kiss a child in his arms." - Mary Haskell's journal September 2, 1913. Throughout history there have been many times that humans have said God walked among, but perhaps even more times when we've needed God to walk among us. In those we love, we get small glimpses of God or at least the version of God that appears to our hearts. And to Gibran this was in part a miracle, for in his July 8, 1914 letter, he wrote: "My knowing you is the greatest thing in my days and nights, a miracle quite outside the natural order of things."
