Oya skelewu small:
Any poetic expression, as with prose, I know is partial, but "WIDE STAR STUDDED WEB : Φ ETERNAL AM !" raises important points:
"She" is mentioned before "He", though given equal emphasis. The word "She" already incorporates the word "He" especially if we capitalize them. In my original transcription of the piece, I attributed "knits and tats" as the "occupation" of both "She" and "He", since I knew that the "right words" had not yet "come to mind". They did later, and now we have "it":
"He... sifts and sorts". "Both" tasks/aspects of the same entity are equally important. "She...knits and tats". NB: "Tatting" is a knotting technique used for making fine lace.
The "All billowing" refers to the "wind" or the "breath" or "spirit" which animates us. "White" of course refers to the melding of colours, and the energy which flows from "It" (the "Source" of "All Life") as "Light".
I believe that this is "The Intricate Weaving of Something Beautiful", and thus have linked it to the symbol "Phi" ( Ф ) which is related to the "Constant of Beauty" (a ratio of "Divine Proportion") which "never ends, even in all of its variety".
I also believe that this expression is grounded in the principles demonstrated in their proportion in my "Peace and Harmony" word, character, and symbol picture-puzzle which I created as a "Gift of Love" in 2002 (in the shadow of the New York twin tower outrage).
My "Peace and Harmony" picture-puzzle can be accessed through my website http://www.wound-wisdom.tk , or through my blog http://wound-wisdom-poetry.blogspot.com etc.
Dear UnklGee and readers
Thankyou very much for supporting Ogaga's relevant piece at http://www.nigeriavillagesquare.com/...an-beings.html , to which I have responded as "myself" Donald Chalmers, rather than as NVS member "a piper too".
I too support Ogaga, and support your reasoned logic "If homosexuality could have been eradicated, it would have ended with the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah of biblical account. That is, assuming homosexuality is a sin and was the sin that occasioned that destruction."
You make many other sound points, also. They deserve to be widely read, appreciated, and acted on, kindly.
I hope that your readers will take a look at my comments noted appended to Ogaga's article, also, where just a few minutes ago I appended the following comment as a warning:
"I note now that the situation in Uganda is just as serious as in Nigeria, where the human rights of a visible minority are being trampled as we speak. We must remember that this is the way Hitler and his henchmen started their war, by picking on people who by themselves could not defend themselves against the whipped up hords. Then it was the handicapped, homosexuals, Gyspies, Jews, Poles, Russians etc (in ever expanding circles) who copped it.
"Germany paid for its stupidity at great cost. I have no doubt that Nigeria and Uganda should not want to follow Hitlerian Nazi mania - which was a tragedy for all concerned, with millions upon millions of lives lost.
Will the homophobia now running rampant in Nigeria and Uganda bring the same calamity on Nigeria and Uganda ? I can only hope and pray not, and rely on sensible Nigerians and Ugandans to stand up against this oppression.
"Take Courage: Stand up now for the disadvantaged and oppressed ! There is no other sane option for you to take.
Nigerians and Ugandans, you must stand together with your gay brothers and sisters NOW. Not to do so is moral cowardice, and flies in the face of best religious practice, which is kind and loving. Even the Muslims amongst you should agree with that (see http://nigeriavillagesquare.com/foru...spectives-1076 ) To run with mobs is not.
For the love of God and each other, please, please write to your local church/mosque/temple leaders, as well as to international religious leaders worldwide to oppose this legislation, which is reminiscent of the changes Hitler brought about - with tragic consequences for all - innocent Jews, Christians, Homosexuals, Gypsies, and the dis-Abled etc - the whole of the Second World War being brought about because one evil-minded person was able to exercise his influence over others.
While you still can Establish Pflag Chapters. Mobilize to neutralize the hatred of your own people. And take a look at my article http://www.nigeriavillagesquare.com/...gislation.html and other articles and blogs which have to do with equality, and respect for the life God has created.
Walata, Foly40, and of course the Shinycoin(RIP)...hmmmm
